After the Philadelphia Inquirer

WASHINGTON, April 10. – Secretary Stanton orders the Military Supervisor of the telegraph to stop all telegraphic communications to the Philadelphia Inquirer, until it is satisfactorily proven that their despatches from the army near Yorktown was duly authorized.

All applications for passes by editors and newspaper correspondents are referred to E. S. [Sanford.]

– Published in the Burlington Weekly Hawk-Eye, Burlington, Iowa, Saturday, April 12, 1862, p. 3.  Note:  The last word in this article was cut off when microfilmed.  The same article appeared in the Rock Island Argus, Rock Island, Illinois, April 11, 1862, and I have used that text to complete the missing text and reconstruct this article.
