    Excerpt from My Connection With the Atlas Newspaper: Including a Sketch of the History of the Amory Hall Party of 1838, and an Account of the Senatorial and Representative Elections in the City of Boston for the Year 1839, So Far as the Question of Sustaining the License Law of 1838 Was Involved Therein

    As the nature of the connection which has heretofore existed between the Atlas newspaper and myself, and the course, in rela tion to the choice of senators and representatives for the county of Suffolk and the city of Boston, which within a year past I and others have seen fit to pursue, seems in general not to be well understood, even among my friends and acquaintances, and has been greatly and maliciously misrepresented by my opponents, I esteem it a piece of justice to myself and others, to offer the following statement and explanations.

    The Atlas newspaper was first established in 1832. I was then very young, having lately been admitted as an attorney at the Suffolk bar. At the time the paper was established, the whole property in and responsibility for it, rested with Mr. John H. Eastburn, well known as the city printer. I had a contingent interest in the copy-right, to commence at the expiration of two years, should the paper he continued after that time. I also received a small annual salary, in consideration of which I contracted to furnish the leading editorial articles. Richard Haughton, the present proprietor of the Atlas, came on from New York in virtue of an arrangement made with him by Mr. Eastburn, to act as head of the news and miscellaneous departments, and as general editor. At first he had no interest in the paper, but was employed upon a salary. The paper had been got up, and all the arrangements made, previous to his arrival, by Mr. East burn and myself.

    After some time, Mr. Haughton became a proprietor in the paper jointly with Mr. Eastburn; and before the expiration of the two years, Mr. Eastburn sold out his whole interest, and retired from the concern altogether, nor has he since that time been connected with it in any shape, to my knowledge.

    After the expiration of the two years, in virtue of the agree ment above referred to, I became a proprietor in the paper to a small extent, and continued, under a new agreement, to furnish a certain part of the editorial matter for some two or three months, wheni sold out my interest to Mr. Haughton, withdrew from the paper altogether, went to the South for the benefit of my health, and was absent from the State for some eighteen months.
