A music publisher usually is paid by a record company (or by some other entity) that enters into a licensing agreement with the publisher. Generally, the publisher splits the the mechanical royalties with the songwriter 50/50, excluding the sale of printed sheet music. The amount the record company pays for the mechanical license, generally is determined by the Copyright Royalty Tribunal (This can vary depending on the particulars of the contract).

I found 2 articles on the web, by Alan Kron, that explain the whole process in several short paragraphs. Here's a link to the articles: http://www.alankorn.com/articles/publishing_1.html. The second article is linked to the first. Reading these articles will answer, in greater detail how the whole process works.
