THE NORTHWESTERN ADVERTISER. 1845, Io the summer of 1845 there was a good deal of talk among the Whigs in re gard to starting a Whig newspaper. The only paper then in ltock Island was Dem ocratic in polities and the Whigs being in a majority feared for their ultimate supre macy unless they had an organ. Various pro jects were oonsidered,and while being talk ed over the Rev. I Horatio Uatchell.former ly of Cincinnati, but who had then been here about a year as a Campbellite preacher, together with young Miles Conway, con cluded to start an independent paper, and t was announced in the Vjrper Mississip pian and Rock Islaml Republican, in its iesue of September 25, 1845, at follows: THE IHDIPINDENT KlPfBLKAN. Thin is the title ol a newspaper about to be corn-nn-iio-d In this place, by Doct. Horatio P.liatchell ami Mr. M ies W.Conway. Jr. The former U a taU'titi'd preacher of the Disciple denomination, unun.ly called Campbrllltes, ana the latter a young gentleman ot ability and character, The prospectus indicated that the paper will be entiriny Independent of the consideration and lis cnssloii of political views, but doeit not give the political view of either gentleman. inter mat tne paper will be open to the Dis cussion (pro and eon) of political auhjeCU). ir. uaicnen i urooaruy to r princioal editor. We, are sorr that the Dubltolieni have notJ se lected some other name than " fiepuMican,"thtii be- Iiik a part of our title-but succcesto the "art pre servative of all arts." ThiB roused the Whig office-holders to action. A fearlessly independent pa,?r was not what they wanted, and in the next issue of the Missixsippian, (October 2, 1X45) the following appeared; ANOTUEK NEW PPER. ve made mention, in our ;nt, of a new paper ahont tn he started iu this place, under the supcr liitendance of Dr. Gft'chell, which we understand, from the prospectus, li to be "independent" in poll lt'i. Mnee then, we have learned, from pretty good author'ty, that a gentleman of our town hit l(i contemplntion the establishment of a WMk Journal, to be commenced thla fall or early the romlux aprliiK'. Krom the 'entleinan'a long resi lience amoni; ua, and rrom Ills well Known attain ments hh a practical printer, we have no doubt he will meet a v'enerou.i patronage, not only from the v uiti a a party, out from the public generally, No files of the paper can be found, but in the MLw'ssippian of Nov. 13, 1845, was an editorial, beginning as follows Sander, of the Davenport (laz'ttt gays that the nonrurrtt. rn A'lifruter Is," etc. etc It is evident from these extracts, that the paper was started on its voyage some tirno between Oct. 2 and Nov. 13. 1845- prolably about the 1st of November, 84.r, and that some sort of a modification of the ordinal intention of Gatchcll and Con way bad taken place, by which the raper was to be a high-toned, unexceptionable Whig paper. I have made a good deal of effort to find the whereabouts of Dr. Gatchcll, hoping thus to find the original files of the paper, and to learn some facts from him con nected with its beginning, but have not been able to get track of him. Judge Wilkinwon met him in Chicago a year or two ago, but neglected to preserve his address. It in stated, by old citizens, that he came here from Cincinnati, about 1M43 or 1844, as a Catnrbellite preacher; that he had been educated as a physician, and was generally called "Dr" Gatchell; that he was about 30 or 35 years of age at that time, and that be used to preach to very large audiences in the court house. He did not think the cause he advocated with so much zeal, eloquence and ability would be best subserved by organizing his pecu culiar sect into a society, but that he could do moro good by being a sort of world's preacher; that he used to draw largely from all denominations, and that he preached religion and not sectarianism while ho remained here, always drawing large auliences. lie had formerly reHided at New Iiurtnony, Indiana, near the Rob ert Dale Owen enthusiasts, and took great delight in combatting their peculiar theo ries -especially was he eloquent and con vincing when combatting infidel theories. After boinir here a year or so he went to Dubuque and bought a press and type and landed it on our levee. Mr. John Thompson, now living, was then the only drayman in town and ho remembers of hauling the material from the boat landing to u small frame building on Miles Con way's lot whero Conway had a home and kept the post office. This was on the west side of Denver street, comer of Mississippi street the lot wot, of Mr, Negus's old place and where Judge Lyndoj-esided pre vimn to building bis present residence. The beginning of tho Northwrsternn Ad vertiser was thero. On the 12th of Nov. 1845, Miles W. Conway, Jr., died. lie was a popular, talented and very promising youg man. His death was a great discouragement to Dr. Gatchell. Ho bud just started his paper and counted much on tho aid of this excellent young man. It did not prove a success under his management; it was too scholarly for the times; it gave too little attention to political and local matters, and bo soou sold the establishment. Dr, Gatchell is spoken of by all as a man of remarkable talent; pleasant in manner; social and genial with all, and a favorite with his associates. He has many warm admirers yet living here. In an article published by mo some yoars ago it was stated that Dr. Gatchell rendered efficient service in his paper in ferreting out and bringing to punishment tho murderers of Col. Davenport, but this was an error, for his paper was not then in existence. The murder was com mitted on the 4th of July 1845, and the murderers were caught and tried and hung before his paper was started. Their execution took place on the 22d of October 1845, Ho remained here a year or two after he disposed of the paper, and re turned to Cincinnati, but it is believed that he afterwards became associated with an eclectic medical school in Chicago, and that he still resides there or in that vicinity. The new proprietor of the paper was Wm, Vandever, who moved the press and type to the "Ilio Grande," a long low building stauding back from Illinois street. in front of which, years afterwards, Lee's block was ereoted. The original building, called the "Kio Gtando," was used as a bowling alley and saloon, before the print- , ing office was moved into.it, and also after the printing office was moved out of it It is now the back part of Brown's! livery 6table, The printing office was, moved from there directly across the street to the second story of a wooden building occupied by Lee & Chamberlia asja stove store, and standing on the ground where Mitchell & Parsons' Btore now stands. From there it was moved to the other side of the street, a little east and in the second story of Guyer's build-, ing, now Hesley's saloon, where it re mained for many years, The Porters fin ally moved their book store into the store underneath, and at last they got a lease of the upperjrooms for a bindery, and then the Advertiser moved into the upper part of Lee's block, formerly called "City Hall," where it remained until it died. The ostensible object in starting the paper was to have a Whig organ but behind this idea, and the real actuating motive of the enterprize was personal hostility to Reynolds. He was the lion in the path. He had great strength among the country people, and he must be broken duwn if possible. But, after Vandever bought the paper it became more a Whig than an Anti-Reynolds paper, and the Anti-Reynolds influence was divided. William Vandever settled in Rock Is land in the spring of 1839, and the first year was a clerk in a store, Afterwards he spent some time in the law office of Knox and Drury, and subsequently did some government surveying. In 1844 he was elected county clerk, and served two years. In May 1846 he and others pur chased the North Western Advertiser from Dr. Gatchell, who had, a few months be fore, established the paper. Mr. Van dever, continued as editor and publisher of the paper for about a year when the office was sold to Messrs. Sanders & Da vis, of the Gazette, in Davenport, who published it a few months when it became the property of Mr. F. R. Bennett, though Mr. Vandever was connected with the editorial management until after tho elec tion of Gen. Taylor, in 1848, when he was appointed to a clerkship in Washing ton, and afterwards to a clerkship in the office of the surveyor general of Iowa, at Dabuque, and where he has since re sided, opening a law office there. In 185S he was elected to congress on the Republican ticket in the Dubuque dis trict, and was reelected in i860. On the breaking out of the war he entered the military service of the United States, as Colonel of the 9th Iowa Vol. Infantry, and was promoted to bo a general officer in 1862, serving to the end of the war, and retiring to private lite. He was born at Baltimore, Md, on the 31st day of March 1817; but, at nine years of age, removed with his parents to Philadelphia which was their original place of resi dence. In the way of education he had only the advantage of the schools and academies of the city, and he continued to reside in Philadelphia until his removal tothe west in 1839. A friend who knew the beginnings of Rock Island well, writes me as follows: "Dr. Reed, Dr. Gatchell and Mr. Van dever were able editors. Reed was bitter ly partizan; Gatchell was classical, stilted ami sell-important; vandever was genial, and lazy but a lion when roused, and a tiger in a content." Another friend writes me as follows: "Dr. Gatchell will be remembered by old residents of Rock Island and Davenport as an eloquent and talented minister of the sect known as Disciples. As a pulpit orator he was one of the most eloquent aud effective speakers of that day, and was, in private lite, a man of irreproach able character. But whatever induced him t i become a journalist was a puzzle to every one. If it was to print as well as preach his sermons, it was not necessary, tor he could preach them extempore quitt as well as he could write them, and people in those days appeared to prefer to take their" gospel orally. "Wm. Vandever, who succeeded Dr. Gatchell in the Avertier, was then a young man of strong Whig proclivities, popular with his party and quite promi nent in local politics. He was intense almost bitter in his dislike of the Demo cracy of that day, and the Advertiser, under his control, contained no more gospel exhortations, but exhortations and denunciations f rom the stump; and so bitter aud personal a partizan did the paper become that it aroused a correspond ing bitterness on the Democratic side, and personal collisions and combats were of not unfrequent occurrence. Thos. Biddi son (since deceased) championed the Dem ocratic hosts. Though not a large man he was "true bluo." and no man, Whig or Democrat, could "handle" him in a per sonal interview. Wm. Frizzell was an other Democrat who had an ugly way of striking "from tho shoulder" when things didn't go to suit him. The Democrats at that time had no organ in Rock Island and so had no way of replying to or meet ing the charges of the Advertiser, except orally or pugilistically, on the street. The Whigs therefore, run the paper, while the Democrats held public sentiment level on the street, vi et arms." (To bo Continued.)
