First Number of The Nation

 The first number of The Nation newspaper was issued on the 6th. It is a very handsome

publication of 82 pages, and is of the form of those London weeklies that have a world-wide

reputation. The contents are of the first class of journalism, and the conductors have only to

continue as they begin to gain for The Nation a high place among the best publications of th

time. The editorials are numerous, and discuss a large variety of subjects, all of great and

immediate interest; and they are written with distinguished ability. …. Judging from this first

number of The Nation, we can congratulate the country on the possession of a first class

weekly journal. Boston Traveller.
