New Paper

A new paper of the Democratic persuasion, with “conservative” instincts, is about to be started in Burlington, coming forth from the ashes of the defunct Gazette. It is to be printed Daily and Weekly and christened THE ARGUS. The enterprising individuals who have the newspaper in charge, are both strangers in Burlington. They are G. W. Todd, late of a Des Moines paper, and A. P. Bentley of the Bloomfield Clarion. What the character of the Argus will be we, and the public, can judge better when we see it.

– Published in The Burlington Weekly Hawk-Eye, Burlington, Iowa, Saturday, May 3, 1862, p. 2
