October 06, 1858

DAILY NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER, Washington, D.C., Oct. 6, 1858  The top of page 3 has an article: "Arrest Of The Montauk Point Slavers" which reports on a slave ship, mentioning in part: "...a vessel had been sunk off Montauk Point...had been scuttled...name of the scuttled vessel is Haidee...sailed from New York...to the coast of Africa, where she took in a cargo of 900 slaves. She then sailed for Cuba and the slaves were landed..." with more.
Keep in mind that the importation of slaves had been outlawed since 1808.
Four pages, nice condition. The folder size noted is for the issue folded in half.
