MICHIGAN STATE GAZETTE. On the 13th of August, 1840, was issued the first number of the States Gazette," a weekly paper published by M. Spencer Moore and William Hitchcock, editors and proprietors, they having bought out on the 21st of July the entire printing establishment of the " Sentinel," which was' no longer published. The " Gazette" was ardent in its support of Gen- eral Harrison for the presidency, and in its general advocacy of the principles of the whig party. Mr. H. H. Heath was for a time editor of this paper, and he was succeeded by Mr. A. A. Dorrance, in the spring of 1848, the paper then being owned by Hitchcock & Allen. On the nomi nation of Martin VanBuren the "Gazette" deserted the whig party and came out for Mr. VanBuren and free soil, whereupon Mr. Dorrance left;;-the paper and established the "Michigan State Journal," the first number of which was issued September 27,1848.
