The United States Presidential election of 1848 was the first election in which all states held their election on the same day. This also marked the 1st Tuesday of November as the fixed date for the national election.
This issue in particular has, at the top of the first column on page 2, an illustrated ad supporting "Lewis  Cass for President and William O. Butler for Vice President" (see photo). 
Various news of the day & a wealth of additional ads are found throughout. Complete in 4 pages, small stain within the masthead, a little spine wear, generally nice.
