Front cover features a striking depiction, titled: “Selling a Freedman to Pay His Fine, At Monticello, Florida—From a Sketch by Jas. E. Taylor.” With story from page 275: “It is customary, when a white or black man commits some pretty crime or misdemeanor, to fine him; and if unable to pay, whatever the sum may be, the equivalent is required in labor. The culprit is taken to the County Court-House and sold to the highest bidder. The purchaser then takes possession of the culprit, who is put to work, and serves his time. A fine of $100s equivalent to three months labor. {Artist} I sketched this scene on the spot. The sheriff led the victim to the place of sale, having hold of one end of a leathern thong; the other end secured the negro by the wrists.”

Also, a story titled “The Massacre of U.S. Troops at Fort Philip Kearney,” accompanied by full page panoramic illustration of the famed “Fettermen” fight in which 1000 of Red Cloud’s Lakota Sioux massacred 82 troopers of Captain Fetterman’s command, under Colonel Carrington, Dec. 23, 1866.
