Boston Globe, Vol. 1, No.1.
These preliminary remarks will introduce the general plan of THE BOSTON DAILY GLOBE, showing its peculiar purposes...
The columns of THE GLOBE will be devoted to the intelligent and dignified discussion of political and social ethics and current events at home and abroad, with a minute and careful review of commercial and financial matters, and a comprehensive report of the various markets of the world. The fine arts -- music and the drama, sculpture and painting, with all important new books, will receive ample and judicious attention from experienced individuals. Its correspondence will be a marked feature of the paper, and will be conducted by able and responsible persons, stationed at the most important points in Europe and America, and thorough whom we design to impart a special interest and value to these columns. The well-digested purpose is to produce a first-class national journal, and though the consideration of local matters will ever form a prominent feature of THE GLOBE, yet its scope is designed to impart universal interests by the temperate and intelligent discussion of such subjects as demand the consideration of the great mass of the people. To accomplish these ends, its editorial corps has been carefully selected and embraces such varied ability as will render its daily issues, in this respect, second to no newspaper in the country...
