Front page contains two political Acts, each signed in type by Vice President: JAMES MADISON. The second page contains "...the substance of the propositions made by Mr. J.

A center column front page political ad supports the Dexter-Gray ticket for Governor & William Gray for Lieut. Gov. Just above the ad is a small woodcut of a ship that has a banner with: "Don't Give Up The Ship."
