Vol. 1, No. 1. E. A. Smith, editor.

...Our citizens are as much interested in having a paper published here as we are. No town, at the present day, which pretends to be of any importance, is without its newspaper. We are disposed to do our share, but we must have assistance, and, what is more, we don't want it to come grudgingly....Just in proportion to the support we receive will be the improvement in the appearance of our paper.

May 17, 1862, The Bulletin (ID 4089)

We are in receipt of an exchange from Marysville bearing the name of the Big Blue Union. It is not a very big paper, nor is it very blue, but bears the appearance of being Union to the core.

May 24, 1862, The Bulletin (ID 4093)

Our Success. The success of our Bulletin enterprise thus far is decidedly flattering. Subscriptions come crowding in from every direction....We are already receiving invoices of new type with which to improve the appearance.

Der Deutsche Krieger is still published in our office, semi-occasionally.

July 19, 1862, The Bulletin (ID 4131)

We have received the first number of the Bourbon County Monitor. It is ably edited and is neat....The question before the people of this county is "will they support two papers?" We are satisfied they can.

July 26, 1862, The Bulletin (ID 4136)

The Bulletin has now been in operation about three months, and thus far our success has been all that we could have desired....We are making constant additions to our stock of material, and will soon be able to execute all kinds of job work promptly and well....In politics, our only platform is the Constitution of the United States, and hold as traitors all who violate it, whether they belong to North or South. We support Mr. Lincoln earnestly and faithfully because we believe him to be honest and true to the cause of the Union....

August 30, 1862, The Bulletin (ID 4158)

Readers of the Bulletin! We present you, this week, a paper enlarged to the size of the old Fort Scott Democrat. Since we commenced its publication in May last, our success has been far ahead of our most sanguine expectations. Our increase in circulation and the crowd of advertisements induced us to double our space....

September 27, 1862, The Bulletin (ID 4184)

The editor (E. A. Smith) has gone with a section of Blair's Battery into Missouri; when last heard from he was at Montevallo, well and hearty. In his absence, we have done the best we can in laying before our numerous subscribers the most correct war news that has come to hand....

October 4, 1862, The Bulletin (ID 4190)

Having taken the field with Major Blair's Second Kansas Battery, I, for a time at least, relinquish the editorial charge of the Bulletin. I am unable at present to say who will be my successor....

October 18, 1862, The Bulletin (ID 4206)

E. A. Smith, the editor of this paper, has again entered into the service of the government so that it will henceforth be impossible for him to attend the publishing of the paper. He is engaged in active duties in the field as 1st lieutenant in Major Blair's Battery. Before leaving, he authorized me to sell the press, as it was impossible for him to say when he might return. It might be soon, it might be never. I have therefore sold the press, according to instructions. The Bulletin has passed into the hands of Charles B. Hayward. I desire to say, in his behalf, that he is a sober, steady, and industrious young man. He is a practical printer....Wm. Smith.
