Description

This provides a glimpse into the feuds between newspapers during the Civil War. The Pacific Christian Advocate, the oldest religious journal in Oregon, has been published since 1855. It was first established at Salem as an independent Methodist weekly, but in 1859 was removed to Portland.

Abstract

This brief article questions the taste of the Pacific Christian Advocate, a "professedly religious paper," for having printed the following:
"Two members of Jeff Davis' cabinet are lying sick at Montgomery, and his editors are lying like the devil, everywhere."
