Extremely lengthy coverage of Mormons & the Indians...
Item # 661026
July 8, 1858
THE NEW YORK TIMES, July 8, 1858 The ftpg. has two full columns of text under the headings: "Interesting From Utah" "Preparations of the Army for the March on Salt Lake City" "Provisions Plenty & Transportation Ample" "The Burning of the Supply Trains in October--Other Mormon Outrages" "Interesting Particulars of Capt. Marcy's Trip to New Mexico" "Peculiarities of the Indian Tribes in Utah". This coverage carries over to take all but half of a column on page 2. I'm not sure I've ever seen such lengthy & detailed coverage of such reports in a single newspaper from before the Civil War. Only a few small portions are seen in the photos below. Also, page 4 has an article headed: "Phases of the Slave Trade". Complete in 8 pages, bit irregular at the spine, generally nice condition.
