About

Samuel M. Fowler and Charles Randall, a nephew of Judge Samuel Randall, started the Northern Star and Warren and Bristol Gazette on February 25, 1828 under the firm name of Fowler & Randall. They published the paper weekly on Saturday mornings and devoted it to the support of "Agriculture, Commerce and Manufactures." It was launched to fill a vacuum of news printed in the busy port towns of Bristol and Warren, as stated in that first issue: "The subscribers having made arrangements with the publisher of The Telegraph for the discontinuance of that paper, propose to issue... a publick newspaper."
