Tragedy with a slave ship...

Item # 685775

April 05, 1853

DAILY NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER, Washington, D.C., April 5, 1853  Page 3 has "Accident To A Cuban Slave Ship" which notes: "On the 25th of February 500 negroes, from Africa, were attempted to be landed at Cayo Verde, in Cuba...the slaver struck a rock and they only saved 190 Africans...A part have been taken to Havana & offered for sale...".
Following this is "What Gold Is Coming To" assuming that the supply is so great that in 25 years the value would be one-half to one-third present value.
Four pages, some binding indents at the blank spine, nice condition.
