This rag paper opens up to four pages of content.  Measures 22 by 14 inches.  It is age toned but not as dark as the scans. There is an area in the top mid section that is darker.  At first I thought it might be a grease stain but it does not go through to the back page so I assume it is an acidic stain.  Multiple folds as can be seen in the scan. and musty smell, that is not over powering. The paper has some war news, local news and two runaway slave ads.  It is dated April 27, 1863.  The publisher was N S Morse and Company. There is an article about Georgia soldiers who had been buried in Virginia by names.  I believe this is a scarce title.

Savannah Republican Confederate Paper
Item #: NEW-0016434

Click image to enlarge
This is a rare paper but it has condition problems, as can be seen in the scan.

The paper which measures 22 by 16 inches  has four pages of content.  The date is July 1, 1862.  Their are scattered heavy stains, a heavy mid fold that crumples part of the content.  When straightened out you can see some tears.  The edges of the paper are quite raggedy with large unsightly tears.  In one area the tear causes some loss of content.  There are deep tears on the second page border which has not affected any content although there are tears through one of the runaway slave ads.

The first and second page is taken up with war news and the third and fourth page mostly with ads.

I don't know what a restorer could do for the specimen but I think it would certainly be worth restoring.

The Countryman-Confederate Paper-Putnam Co Ga
Item #: NEW-0016429

Click image to enlarge
This is a rather small (12 by 9.5 inches) newspaper with appears as a booklet with eight pages.  Very nice condition except for a scissor cut through the right top of the first page, that extends to the letter R in the title.  I image it was the name of a previous owner.  This is a very unique and important paper as it was published on a plantation in Putnam County Georgia that belonged to the owner and editor of this paper,  Here is a link that gives information about the paper.
http://onlineathens.com/stories/050609/oco_436707063.shtml#.V27cS7grIdU  

"Joseph Addison Turner and his Confederate newspaper The Countryman. The paper, published on Turner's Turnwold Plantation in Putnam County from 1862 to 1866, was widely circulated throughout the Confederate states during the Civil War."

"It was in Putnam County that a young Joel Chandler Harris, who gained fame for his "Uncle Remus" stories, began his career in writing as an apprentice at the newspaper."

"The New Georgia Encyclopedia states that Harris was hired at age 16 in 1862. "Under Turner's guidance and stern editing, Harris remained with the paper for its duration. He developed into an excellent literary composer and contributed a number of essays, poems, and book reviews to the paper himself," the encyclopedia reads".  

The paper has fiction articles, a short column relating to the President and Leaders of the Confederate States. There are one page plus advertisements involving the sale of Negroes, including one offering to pay the help.  There is also an ad where someone is seeking substitutes to fight.

Macon Daily Telegraph and Confederate Newspaper
Item #: NEW-0016426

Click image to enlarge
This is a very rare title since this paper's run lasted for a short time.  It began on 9/20/64 and ended on 4/20/65.  The Telegraph existed however in many forms and rival papers would fold or combine with others.  

This is a one page rag sheet, measuring 24 by 28 and a half inches. Folds and pinholes along the vertical fold and one small hole in another area which is about an inch and a half. affecting an ad.  

Optimistic ad for one seeking to "buy 100 Negroes"  Paying in Confederate currency or Georgia bank notes. Other ads seeking to sell their slaves and ads for runaway slaves. 

There is a very long listing of the casualties of the 69th Georgia Regiment and a shorter column for casualties of he 38th regiment.

Most of the other content relates to war news.

Daily Intelligencer-Atlanta Confederate Paper-Moved to Macon Ga
Item #: NEW-0015510

Click image to enlarge
The Daily Intelligencer was an important paper in Atlanta, which was first published in 1849.  During the civil war the paper found it difficult to acquire paper from its supplier, the paper mill at Sope Creek.  In 1864 it was purchased by Jared Whitaker who briefly moved it to Macon, then moved it back after the war.  The paper was the only Atlanta paper to survive the war.

This is a rare example of the Confederate paper published in Macon.  It is dated August 4, 1864.  The paper opens up with four pages of content.  Wear to the folds and especially the the middle fold with small holes.  General wear and moderate overall foxing.  There is one runaway slave ad and some business ads on the last page but content about the war fills the pages.  There is a fairly lengthy account of the defense of of Macon, after Stonewall's raid by the Atlanta Wright Guards, Macon Armory and Arsenal under the command of Lt Col Mallett.

Southern Confederacy-Atlanta-1861-Confederate Newspaper
Item #: NEW-0015099

Click image to enlarge
This is a large format paper which opens up to show two pages.  In total it has four pages containing mostly content on the war. There are no slave sale ads or runaway notices but there are some nice graphics on the ads.  Could  we assume that the editors opposed slavery?  If, so it would be an unusual Southern newspaper of this period.  This issue is dated August 28,1861.  The publishers were Adair & Smith.  Information on this paper at the end of the listing.

This is a rag paper with some wear in the middle of the middle fold, as expected.  The margins are wide so the ragged tears along all of the right edge only extend in one place to the content but just barely. See second scan.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atlanta_Southern_Confederacy

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Atlanta Southern Confederacy was a strongly Democratic Southern newspaper during the American Civil War.

The first issue was February 15, 1859, by Dr. James P. Hambleton. Historian Franklin Garrett explains its quick impact in that Hambleton was a "Fire-eater and his editorials were highly intemperate in tone." But he joined the Confederate Army in May 1861 and sold the paper to C.R. Hanleiter and George W. Adair, who merged it with their Gate City Guardian, keeping the new name. By the time the paper stopped publication in 1864, Hanleiter had been replaced by J. Henley Smith.

Georgia Times-Cuthbert Ga Confederate Newspaper
Item #: NEW-0015089

Click image to enlarge
I can't find any evidence that this newspaper ever existed, but clearly it did.  This paper was published every Thursday by J T Whitman.  It is dated March 10,1864. There is no war news on the front page.of this rag paper but the second page is filled with war reports with Confederate sentiment, as well as a clue to the origin of this paper.

Notice to the Press.  The office of the North Georgia Times having been removed to this place.."  The paper was originally  in Dalton. and no doubt moved to Cuthbert as the enemy advanced through Ga    The third page is mostly made up of ads including a very interesting ad where two soldiers with the 47th Georgia Regiment, Jackson's Brigade "Two Wives Wanted" and headed "Important News for the Front".The two soldiers were Tom Oakes and Bill Patage. "No need apply over 18 years old."  I couldn't resist looking them up in the 47th Regiment, and sure enough they weren't there.  Two guys posing as war heroes to get a young wife? There is more content and ads on the fourth page and a small split in the middle of the middle fold.    

Very light foxing on the paper and there is a small split in the middle of the middle fold.

Daily Constitututionalist Confederate Paper-Augusta Ga
Item #: NEW-0014876

Click image to enlarge
This rare paper was printed on April 14, 1865, the day of Lincoln's assassination, but clearly printed before that event.  Although the war was closing, the paper is all confederate, there are even two slave sale ads.  There is a long report of the casualties in Evans brigade, who were from Georgia.  This rag paper is 21 inches by 13 1/2 inches and opens up to four pages of content.  The last two pages are mostly ads.  There is a large stain at the mid top and some staining along the mid vertical fold halfway.  There are two hinges pasted to the top edges where it was inserted in a frame but I've left them as they appear to be acid free hinges which would probably come off with water.

Can be folded along the original folds to mail for a savings

Memphis Daily Appeal-Printed-Jackson MS-Confederate Newspaper
Item #: NEW-0011087

Click image to enlarge
Large format one sheet, two page paper dated January 14,1863 and printed on the run from Jackson Mississippi.  One small hole affecting the content and several in the edge.  Light rag paper with foxing, mostly in the margin.  Some of the content in the paper include several slave related ads, run away and slave sales.  Short story covering the Battle of Murfreesboro and a long column of names of wounded in this battle.  Almost all of the articles and ads are war related.  This paper has a very interesting history which follows that I took from the web.

The Memphis Daily Appeal” newspaper was one with a fascinating history during the years of the Civil War. Memphis was a Confederate stronghold up through the Battle of Memphis on June 6, 1862, at which time the Yankees moved in and it became a Yankee city. The "Appeal", very much dedicated to the Southern cause rallying both civilians & soldiers, was the most important newspaper of the region & was soon famously known as the "Moving Appeal.”
On June 6, 1862, the presses and plates were loaded into a boxcar and moved to Grenada, Mississippi, where it stayed for a few months until approaching Federal troops threatened again, forcing a move in November 1862 to Jackson, Mississippi, where it published until May 1863, when Federal troops again arrived. By this time, the "Appeal” had gained notoriety among Union forces as a rebel sympathizer while it remained on the run. The next stop was Meridian, Mississippi, from where, one issue and two days later, the wandering journalists moved on to Mobile, Alabama, then to Montgomery, and ultimately to Atlanta, the economic heart of the Confederacy. Publication from Atlanta began in June 1863 and continued through July 1864, when it returned to Montgomery, where it published from September 1864 to April 1865. Its final move was to Columbus, Georgia, where Federal forces finally caught up with it. It resumed publication following the war in Memphis on November 5, 1865. During just a four year period this newspaper published in nine different cities. (credit: Tennessee State Library & Archives)

Fayetteville Tennessee Newspaper-Federal Occupation
Item #: NEW-009066

Click image to enlarge
Large format single page, double sided newspaper, titled Fayetteville Observer with the date March 19, 1863. Folds and some tears at the folds. Smearing at the top where it looks like someone attempted to erase the owner's name. The entire paper consists of war news and some war related ads. There are two advertisements for the sale of "lively Negroes" and a couple of runaway wives ads, who left for "no good reason".  According to my research the paper was strongly in support of succession but when Fayetteville became occupied by Federal troops in April of 1862, they struggled to stay in print.  From the web: http://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/lccn/sn85033395/

"The Observer remained in publication until spring 1862. The paper reported: "When [Union troops] halted in front of our office, our workmen were busily engaged preparing the Observer of April 10th for the press. Of course, the establishment was closed without delay, and the present is the first opportunity we have had for completing the issue.” Consequently, page 1 of the paper is dated April 10, while pages 2, 3 and 4 are dated September 18, 1862: the date on which printing resumed and the paper was eventually published." 

I'm not clear when the paper resumed publication.  Fayetteville was a busy landing area for Union troops and must have been too busy to take over the paper.  The coverage in this issue is not clearly Union or Confederate, just the news obtained from Northern and Southern papers.  Again according to my research, the paper was finally suspended in July 1863 and did not resume until November 9, 1865.  It was certainly unusual that a Confederate paper was allowed to continue publication so I believe this issue to be quite rare.

Rare Lot of Confederate Newspapers-Chattanooga Daily Rebel
Item #: NEW-005937

Click image to enlarge
I am offering an extremely rare grouping of three issues of the famous and highly sought newspaper, the Chattanooga Daily Rebel Banner which was printed in four different cities during the war. The first issue offered was printed in Chattanooga, and the other two in Griffin Georgia and Selma Alabama as the presses were desperately moved to continue printing the newspaper that championed the Confederate cause. A history of this newspaper and its editor Franc M Paul will follow the description of the papers. Note: Paypal will not be accepted on this lot but arrangements for payments can be made. The first issue this issue is June 27, 1863, just a month before Paul had to begin his moves to escape federal occupation and loss of his paper. This is a single sheet paper and is in nice condition other than one pinhole at the middle fold and some stains. Encapsulated for safe handling and preservation purposes. War news and very interesting ads, runaway slaves, reward for a person making counterfeit notes, and ad for an AWOL reb soldier. The second issue is a single sheet dated July 30, 1864 from Griffin Georgia. It has also been encapsulated which has caused some reflections in the scan. Pinholes and some larger holes, the largest being around the size of a pencil eraser. Fold and excessive wear around the folds. Scattered foxing primarily along the folds. There is a brief next day report of a “great battle near Atlanta”. Other war news fill the paper along with some ads, including one saying “1500 Negro men wanted at once for teamsters in the Army of Tennessee…Impressment will be resorted to if the requisite number are not furnished within a few days.” The third issue is a single sheet, dated December 23, 1864, printed in Selma Alabama. This paper has not been encapsulated and would benefit by being pressed before encapsulation as there are numerous creases at the middle fold. Acidic toning is more pronounced in this paper. There are also more holes, including one through the title, Selma. See large chunk out of the bottom edge, not affecting the text on the front or back. Brief article on the Battle of Franklin and a very lengthy memorial to General Pat Cleburne. The article on the battle seem to claim a victory, but closed with, “A few more victories like this one and we will need a couple of corps to reinforce Hood.” Much more war news. History of the paper: (adapted from A History of Tennessee Newspapers, published by the Tennessee Press Association) Franc M Paul printed the first issue of The Rebel on August 1, 1862. It continued until April 1865, when the Union army captured its plant at Selma Alabama after it had eluded the Federals by Moving from Chattanooga to Marietta, Ga, then to Griffin Ga and finally to Selma. Ironically Paul served his apprenticeship under Parson Brownlow at the Knoxville Whig. Unlike his counterpart Paul sought to have a paper directed to the Confederate army. On August 21, 1863 Federal General John T Wilder’s “lightning brigade” began shelling Chattanooga. Paul arranged with a railroad engineer to switch two freight cars to the rear of the Bank of Tennessee building during the night. All but one press and all the paper and other supplies were loaded and the cars were reattached to a train headed to Atlanta. When the train stopped at Marietta, the Rebel disembarked and established themselves there. The paper remained in Marietta until the advance of Sherman’s army. The paper was later threatened by the displeasure of General Braxton Bragg who was criticized harshly after the Battle of Chickamauga. Bragg banned the paper among the Confederate troops. The ban was removed only when the offending reporter left the paper. By spring of 1864, Sherman’s army had reached the outskirts of Marietta., resulting in the move to Griffin. However by September Sherman began menacing Griffin. The Rebel made its final move to Selma where it active until the final days of the war. On April 2, 1865 the Federals under General James H Wilson captured Selma. The office of the paper and the presses escaped the burning but Paul was arrested and placed in s prisoner stockade. Union officers used the Rebel’s office and pressed to print a small daily paper called the Yankee Cavalier, which they published during the ten days Wilson Occupied Selma. The office, presses, and supplies were destroyed by Wilson’s soldiers. Mysteriously the Rebel appeared one last time. On April 27, 1865 it announced the armistice that had ended the hostilities. No one has determined who published this resurrected Rebel. Franc Paul went on to become the business manager of the Knoxville Tribune. He later launched the Chattanooga Dispatch which lasted only a few months. Paul established a printing business in Nashville where he died.
