Raleigh, N. C., June B.—A copy of
the Tri-Weekly Star, of Raleigh, bearing
the date of November 25. 1854 and at
present in the hands of Governor A. W
McLean, not only affords an
"newspnpering” of other days but \"
an insight into what the people
t(linking about nt that time. This par
ticular newspaper has long since disap
peared from publication lists. If it has
any descendants in the newspajier field
today, their ancestry is indefinite.
The issue of the Tri-Weekly Star in
possession of Governor McLean was
sent to him by an admirer. Its front
page, consisting of five wide columns,
is taken up for the most part with ad
vertisements. For instance, there was
one ad telling about the cheapest, short
est and most edpeditious route to Peters
burg and north. Passenger could save
fifty cents between Raleigh and Peters
burg by taking this route, the nd said.
Then, there was an insurance nd. in
serted by a company with head offices nt
Ra'eigh- “This company,” said the nd.
“continues to insure the lives of all
healthy white persons and slaves. The
greatest, risk on a single life is $5,000.
Slaves are insured for a term of one to
five years at two-thirds their value. A?1
losses are paid within 90 days after
satisfactory proof is presented.”
There were numerous other advertise
ments on the front page. Many ol these
were signed by names still familiar in
Raleigh. On the other band, some «f the
names have passed entirely from the
pages of the city directory. Some or the
more fnmi'inr names contained in this
1854 issue were: Turner. Young, Jor

from $5 to $lO each. They were describ

with carved handles.
