Washington, D.C. Fulton & Smith. 1839. , 16 pp. First and last page dusted, light institutional rubberstamp, Very Good.
Volume I, Number I, for January 1839, the first issue of this monthly, which Lomazow incorrectly calls an "anti-Whig magazine." It is actually an anti-Jacksonian magazine. "We have seen how the whole current of his policy was to depress or deny the powers of Congress, but always to augment and to fortify those of the Executive, at the expense of the Constitution, and of the rights of the people of the States." The introductory article denies that the Whigs are burdened "with the imputed sins of the Federalists," denounces those who "preposterously" claim that Whigs comprise an American aristocracy, and opposes Jacksonian economic and banking policies.
