Doreen has answer your first question. Here's an answer to the second one.
Journalier does mean day laborer.
Journallier is simply a typo for journalier, and also means day laborer.
If the census reads "Newspaper man", you are looking at the word
"journaliste", as in "journalist".
Out of curiosity, on which Ancestry census have you found this annotation?
