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.

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.

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
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
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
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
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
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."
