An Old Paper.

Mr. J. B. Heyward, of this city, among numerous family relics, has found a copy of an old paper published at Charleston in ante-bellum times, which when contrasted with the newspaper of the present day, is quite a curiosity… It is a copy of the “Charleston City Gazette or the Daily Advertiser,” and is dated February 26, 1789, and thus is over 107 years old.” [Article continues to describe news paper.]
