The press for the new newspaper
to lie started in this town arrived
last week and has lieen put in posi
tion over Brown & Armstrong's
store. The jmper will bo a seven
column folio and issued on Fridays,
The paper will be known as the
Pikk County Press and, of course,
Republican in politics. It will be
edited and managed by J. H. Van
Etten. About thirty years ago Dr.
Edward Holiday, since deceased,
hoping to furnish the Republicans
of Pike county with a impcr devoted
to Protection principles, started the
Northern Eagle in Milford, but
though well edited and managed, it
had only a brief existence.
(From Wnync Citizen, Nov. 7th.)
The Pike County Press is the
name of a Republican paper in our
neighlwring county ,the first number
of which appeared last week. It is
under the management of J. H. Van
Etten, a well-known memlier of the
Pike county liar. Its appearance is
highly creditable j its news depart
ment comprehensive j and its edi
torial columns exhibit marked nbil
ity and an elevated tone, and define
the position and puriiose of the
paper with clearness and force. It
is calculated to do excellent work in
the dissemination of Republican
principles among the yeomanry of

We have received the first issue
of the Pike County Press, published
at Milford by J. II . Van Etten, a
well-known lawyer of that place.
It is, we believe, the first Republican
paper ever printed in that county,
and we trust that it will find the
field so profitable that it will grow
and increase in influence and power.
Tho Pike County Press is in gxxl
hands and has mode a good start.

We have received the first num

The first issue of the Pike County
Press is before the public. A copy

of this initial numlier indicates that

The Pike County Press edited by

The Pikk County Press is the
name of the new paper started at
Milfonl, Pike county, Pa. J. H.
Van Etten, Esq., editor. The Press
will be Republican in politics and is
issued every Friday, it is four pages,
seven columns to the page. It pre
sents a neat appearance and it con
tained a vast amount of news for
the first issue. Editor Van Etten in
his salutatory says, " in morals it
should be cliaste, in virtue above
suspicion, in politics clean, and in
religion devoutly respectful." With
these and many other promises, we
do not see why, and hope it will
soon lie, on the way to prosperity
and permanently settled in that
famous old town.
(From Port JunU Gazette, Nov. 9th.)
We are just in receipt of the first
number of the Pike County Press,
of Milford, Pa., edited and published
by J. H. Van Etten, Esq., of that
village. The first number is a very
creditable production and must be
very satisfactory to the editor. The
Press is Republican in politics and
in news matters, the editor states,
" it will be truthful, cliaste and
pure." The attractive head was de
signed by Lundelius, the artist of
this village. We take pleasure in
congratulating Mr. Van Etten on
the general excellence of his first
number as a whole and heartily
wish him abundant success in his

it will prove a great success. Pike

influence. It may not lie able to

that Jonah went down to Niiwveh
and made a great success of it and
transformed the king into a fairly
good fellow. Although I am of the
opinion that it would hike more
grace to transform the Pike county
Democrats into goml Republicans
than it did to change the Ninevitcs
into fairly goodChristions ; yet with
this example and a numlier of others
to which I might refer, you need
not have any fear. Ixmg may the
