About

 Indiana state printer John Douglass relocated to Indianapolis, then a town with fewer than 1,000 residents, when the state capital moved there from Corydon in 1825.  Douglass purchased a share of the Western Censor and with his partner, Douglass Maguire, changed the title. The Indiana Journal debuted on January 11, 1825.  The anti-Jacksonian (later Whig) newspaper advocated government-sponsored internal improvements and protective tariffs to aid Indiana’s agricultural economy.
