The first article at the top of page 1 has a small head: "Presidential Election" with the report noting: "It being ascertained that Louisiana has given three votes to gen. Jackson & two to Mr. Adams, as president--(and an undivided vote for Mr. Calhoun as vice president), we are enabled to state the result of the late election as follows: " What follows is a list of the votes for Jackson, J.Q. Adams, Wm. Crawford, and Henry Clay plus just a bit more text.
Among the other reports in this issue are: "The Nation's Guest" which is concerning General Lafayette; "The Slave Trade" "Report of the Postmaster General" and more.
