RICHMOND EXAMINER, Virginia, January 14, 1862 

* Rare rebel publication

Half of the front page is taken up with ads and notices, with most of the balance taken up with war-related items but some "Foreign Miscellany" as well.
Page 2 begins with the always interesting editorial, taking over a full column, & beginning: "New York has supplied the sinews of the war to the Northern government. Without the financial aid contributed by that city the Federal government could not have protracted their military operations beyond the defeat of Bull Run..." with much more. Also on the inside pages are: "The Latest Northern News--Movements & Spirit of the War" "The Northern Congress--The Mason Slidell Affair" "Calendar of War Rumours" 'The Black Mail Case" "Legislature of Virginia" "The City Fortifications--That $30,000" "The Courts" and "City Intelligence". More than half of the back page is taken up with a lengthy list of Acts of the Confederate Congress.
Complete in four pages, never bound nor trimmed, and in nice condition.
