"WANTED—A CLERK." [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 15 January 1869

"WANTED—A CLERK." A few days ago, a gentleman advertised in this paper for a clerk, and requested applicants to address their notes to him at the Ledger Office. By the close of the first day on which the advertisement appeared, there were four hundred and eighteen applicants for this one clerkship. This afforded a most forcible illustration -of the extent to which the occupation of clerking and book-keeping is overstocked in this city. But a few months previous, the head of a business establishment, who wished some help in the way of writing, but in which some literary ability was required, advertised for an assistant, at a moderate salary, and having incidentally mentioned that the position might suit a lawyer or physician not in good practice, gut more than a. hundred applications, oi which lifiy-thrco were from young lawyers and doctors. Here was another illustration of sin over supply of the professional or "genteel occupations." Another advertiser in the Ledger, who wante...

Her remarks arc better suited to the regions of New York and Philadelphia cities, but they may lie read with profit elsewhere; " When 1 say that the street dross of the majority of the respectable women of N.
