Page 3 has a report with a small heading: "Nauvoo News" with notable news, bits including: "...that Daniel Spencer as been elected mayor of Nauvoo pro tempore. George Miller & Whitney have been elected trustees...the temple is progressing rapidly. Samuel H. Smith, brother of the Prophet, died at Nauvoo about two weeks since. William is now the only surviving brother. Sidney Rigdon, who claimed the leadership of the church...also on the ground of his having been named by Joe at one time as his successor, has had his claims rejected by the twelve..." and a bit more.
