The Daily Delta was one of a handful of papers being published in the bustling port of New Orleans of the eve of Civil War. This particular issue was published nine days before the Confederate attack on Ft. Sumter. The tension in the air is reflected in the commentary concerning “What the Other Morning Journals Say” (The Bulletin, The Bee, & the Picayune).

The front page features a reprint from a Havana concerning the “Advantages and Disadvantages of Trading with the Southern Confederacy.” Other front coverage includes financial, commercial news and “Marine Intelligence” of the Port of New Orleans, dealing with shipping arrivals and departures. Also a listing of persons arriving at the “Principle Hotels,” as well as an extensive listing of letters remaining at the Post Officer, chivalrously broken down into a “Ladies” and a “Gentleman’s” list.

The paper contains many fascinating ads and interesting tidbits. A “Murder in Baton rouge” is sketched in details, along with news that “Some of the Virginia companies are being armed with the Enfield rifle, which is furnished at contract prices for from $23.75to $25 apiece.”

Solid collectible for New Orleans antiquarians and Louisiana Civil War aficionados.  [jp] [ph:L]
