JARYIS, Russell, journalist, born in Boston, Massachusetts, in 1791; died in New York city, 17 April, 1853. During his infancy his family removed to Claremont, New Hampshire, where his early life was spent. He was graduated at Dartmouth in 1810, and afterward at the Litchfield, Connecticut, law school. Aft& practising his profession for a few years, he became a regular writer on the " United States Telegraph" in Washington, and in 1836, on the establishment of the "Public Ledger" in Philadelphia, became its editor. He was bold in attacking abuses of local interest, and succeeded in attracting attention to the "Ledger," adding to its popularity and increasing its circulation. In 1839 he withdrew from that paper and established the "World," a morning journal, which was not a success. In about nine months Jarvis gave up the publication and went to New York, where he afterward resided. In time he renewed his connection with the "Ledger" as contributing editor, still living in New York. He was also a writer and correspondent for other journals.
