There is a wealth of Civil War reporting on the front page including column heads: "The Burnside Expedition" "Condition of the Rebel Guns" "A Visit to Nag's Head" "The War in the South-West" "Nashville Surrendered" "In Occupation by Union Troops" "The Rebels at Murfreesboro" "Capture of Fayetteville, Ark."
But the prime content would be found on page 6 with: "Inaugural Address of Jeff. Davis" (see for portions) which is followed by: "Another Fast Day--Proclamation by the President" which is signed in type: Jefferson Davis. Also on pg. 6 is: "What Shall be Done with the Slaves?".
Page 2 has a war-related map headed: "Rebel Fortifications In Florida" plus heads: "The Rebels in Florida" "Description of the Fortifications" and more.
