The Mar. 17th issues was called "twentieth year, no. 11," but with the Mar. 24, 1871 issue, the paper re-assumed its earlier numbering, calling that issue "twenty-eighth year, no. 12." "Twenty-eighth year" is consistent with the Vol. 7 beginning designation of this title. A further change was made in Apr., 1875. Between the Apr. 22nd and the Apr. 29th issue, the year designation changed from "thirty-second year" to "thirty-ninth year."
