Item # 692177

July 06, 1850

THE GREENSBOROUGH PATRIOT, (Greensboro), North Carolina, July 6, 1850  Rarely are we able to secure antebellum newspapers from this city.
This issue is chock full of interesting articles, a few on the front page including: "Effects of a Vegetable Diet" which is a curious item with refutations from "...a beef-eating German..."; "Milwaukie" [Milwaukee] which concerns the growth of the city; "From the Plains" which is an account of the tribulations of those emigrating to the California gold fields; "Fugitive Slave Case" of Ruel Daggs about which there is much found on the internet. Plus an Act of Congress: "...to Increase the Rank & File of the Army, and to Encourage Enlistments".
The inside has; "Latest News From California" which concerns the gold rush; "New Mexico To Be A State" "California" "Message of the President on the Affairs of Texas and New Mexico" signed in type: Z. Taylor.
Four pages, very nice condition.
