  • This semi-weekly magazine superseded the Examiner and was also edited by Barent Gardenier. While the Examiner was mainly a political magazine, the Courier focused on all kinds of news--foreign, domestic, local, and political, as well as the proceedings of Congress and the state legislature. Much of the material was selected from other papers, particularly the New-York Courier, a daily paper. There was also a column on literature called "The Critic," and some poetry and anecdotes. Cf. American periodicals, 1741-1900.
