     FIRST DECADE - 1801-1811


     Only a few newspapers of those published in Marietta before 1811-the Ohio Gazette and Virginia Herald, the Commentator number of the Marietta Register,  --have been preserved.  We give a summary of the advertisements as published in the Centennial number of the Marietta Register.


     From the Ohio Gazette and Virginia Herald, October 24, 1803-----


     The first page is taken up exclusively with advertisements, set mostly in very large type, so that there were only seven in all;  the list of letters remaining uncalled for in the Post office at Marietta, October 1, 1803, occupying a column and a half of the four columns of the page. Griffin Greene was postmaster.  Post offices were not very frequent at that day, for we find letters advertised for persons living at "Belleprie, Little

Kenhawa [sic], Kenhaway, Gallipolis, Guiandot and Big Sandy" John Cline and Enos Atwater give notice that they intend to apply at the next fall term of court "for a right of establishing a ferry from a point at Fort Harmar across the Ohio River to Mr. Porter's, in Wood County, Virginia."  Notice is given that the "inhabitants of the townships of

Newport and Tuskarawa, in the county of Washington," intend to petition the General Assembly for a new county, with "a permanent seat of justice at, or near the mouth of Licking Creek on the Muskingum."  John Buell gives notice that a "a horse and a colt broke into the enclosure of the subscriber," and requests the owner to prove the property and take them away.  N. Gates, secretary, gives notice of an adjourned meeting of mechanics to consider "the propriety of forming a Mechanical Society" in Washington County.  Edward Tupper says he has "just received from Philadelphia, and offers for

sale at his store in Marietta, a large and general assortment of Dry Goods, Groceries, Hardware, Saddlery, etc."




From the Ohio Gazette, May 21, 1804----


     The third page is half filled with the "Laws of Ohio," for short miscellaneous articles, and four advertisements, --one from Clarksburg, Virginia.  John Greene advertises that he has "opened a Public House in the town of New Port, on the road of Marietta toWheeling, fifteen files from Marietta."  James Riggs, of Grandview, says, "an iron gray mare came to my plantation and broke into my enclosure," and requests the owner to prove property, etc.  Richard Greene offers for sale" a very valuable farm in the town of Marietta, about a half a mile from the city, containing 39 acres."




SECOND DECADE --- 1811-1821


     A summary of those found in the WESTERN SPECTATOR and its successor, the AMERICAN FRIEND, contains items of interest to the stu- [next pg.]





dent of local history.  Among the names are many that still hold an honorable place in this county.  We must, however, bear in mind that the list is by not means a completed one since the newspapers of those days contained very few advertisements, and of those few more than half were official notices.  It was not then customary for lawyers and physicians to have a business card in the papers.  As for dentists and insurance agents,

they had not yet appeared.

     In the decade here represented there were a few important economic changes, briefly and modestly announced, yet destined to have great influence upon the future development of the county.  The steamboat had appeared on the Ohio, taking the place of the keel-boat, and a steam mill had been erected at Marietta.  Mills for carding the wool into rolls to be spun on the old-fashioned wheel appeared at different places where water

power was to be found, and a little later, fulling mills are advertised.  In this decade the bear and the otter had not entirely disappeared from the woods, and even after 1820 the skins and furs of these animals had not entirely ceased to be important articles of merchandise.  It was the period of beginning for other industries.  A tinner living on Wolf Creek could hardly accommodate the people of Marietta in 1902 by a monthly visit. 

     While many places have seemed to come nearer to us through the improvement in the means of transportation, other places have grown away from us, or perhaps have been left on one side of our lines of communication.  For example, a man in the Shenandoah Valley would hardly have any reason to advertise in a Marietta paper of 1902, nor its it very likely that any citizen of Tennessee would do so.

     That it was a period of the rapid growth of a very unsatisfactory kind of "banking" is shown from these advertisements, as well as from the extracts which appear in another part of the book.  Our financial condition could hardly be worse that it was in 1820 after our numerous experiments in manufacturing paper "money."

     The decade is associated with the introduction of Merino sheep and with a great improvement in quality, as well as increase in the quantity, of wood produced. The farmers of the county were still compelled to guard their flocks against the ravages of wolves and panthers.
