Manning was born May 16, 1831 in Albany New York, he was educated in the public schools and then entered the world of commerce. At the age of 11, Manning went to work for the Albany Atlas which later consolidated with the Argus in 1856 where he became the editor in 1865 and owner in 1873. In November 1884, Manning married the former Mary Margaretta Fryer (1844 - 1928), she was daughter of William John Fryer and Margaret Livingston (Crofts) Fryer.
Manning's political career was very successful as well. He served as the chairman of the New York Democratic committee from 1881, to 1885, and he later was appointed by the U.S. Secretary of the Treasury by the President Grover Cleveland in March 1885. Manning resigned on March 31, 1887; the cause was due to ill health.
Death and legacy
An engraved portrait of Manning appears on U.S. paper money, on the series 1886 20.00 silver certificates. Some of these notes are referred to as "diamondbacks" due to their unusual reverse design and they are scarce.
There is a memorial to Manning in the Cathedral of All Saints (Albany, New York).
