Dundee has always had one excellent Newspaper. It has now two; both Radical
or Independent Reformers. The new Paper, The Dundee Chronicle, like its elder
brother, The Advertiser, is conducted with great vigour and talent.
It gives us pleasure to announce another new Independent Paper, in a place, where,
not many years ago, nothing but Toryism prevailed. It has been found, that Dumfries-
shire cannot support its original Tory Journal; and has become even a little impatient
of its excellent Whig Paper. We are immediately to have a thorough-going associate
in The Dumfries Times, a new Paper, to be conducted by Mr Douglas of the London
Spectator ; a man of ability, experience, and sound principles. This new Paper is to
advocate the Ballot, short Parliaments, and an Extension of the Suffrage; in short,
Radical Reform, in the best sense of the term. The Dumfries Times, under the care
of so excellent an Editor, cannot fail to be one of the ablest and most honest Papers
in Scotland. From what we know of the sentiments of the people of Dumfries-shire,
this new Paper is certain of that extensive support which it will deserve.
