Providence: Benjamin F. Moore, Printer, [1842]. Broadside, 11-3/4" x 19-1/2", printed in three columns. Toned, mild edge wear, a few fox spots. Else Very Good. In small type, beneath the title: "From the Newport Herald of the Times- Extra."

The broadside reports the celebration in Newport with the arrival of the Newport Artillery. Reverend Vinton gives thanks for the defeat of the Dorr forces. "Instead of the triumph of the dogmas of political fanaticism and the conspiracy of aspiring demagogues... Government, the Institution of the Most High, is victorious over anarchy. Liberty has vanquished licentiousness. Order has overcome the fury of individual will. All these glorious results are accomplished without the spilling of blood."
"It was a proud day for Newport and Rhode-Island."
