Eighteenth-Century American Newspapers in the Library of Congress
354. The New-York gazette; and the weekly
mercury. w., Sept. 21-Nov. 2, 1776.
Note: Hugh Gaine, the publisher, immediately
prior to the British occupation of New York, removed
to Newark, N.J., and there on Sept. 21, 1776, issued
his paper with the above title. The last Newark issue
was that of Nov. 2, 1776, no. 1307. Gaine then
returned to New York. In the meantime Gaine's New
York office, under the inspection of British
authorities, had been used for the publication of a
paper with the same title and the same volume
numbering, nos. 1301-1307, but issued weekly from
Sept. 30 to Nov. 11. The issue of Sept. 30 allowed
Gaine's name to remain in the imprint, but the
subsequent issues omitted it. (Brigham.)
Publisher: Hugh Gaine.
