Press in the Big Cities

The Press in the Great Cities  — Some time since, we gave a few statistics of the press in the two cities of Boston and New York.  We could not at that time obtain the circulation of each city, but from statistical table recently published, we learn that in 1850 the number of papers, in the cities of Boston, New York, and Philadelphia, was as follows, to which the annual circulation is annexed:

Boston                         113 papers,       Circulation,  54 millions

New York                       104   “                        “        ,  78 millions

Philadelphia                   41     “                        “        ,   48      “
