Actually a territorial newspaper as Minnesota did not gain statehood until May, 1858.
Page 2 has some fine reporting on Bleeding Kansas, with a column headed: "Bloody Battle at Ossawatomie" "Free State Men Defeated" "Terrible Work at Leavenworth". The 1 1/2 columns have a fine account of the Battle of Osawatomie with mention of abolitionist John Brown.
Four pages, very nice condition.
