"Condensed View of Newport"

Newport is a pretty little town, lying on the South bank of the Ohio and the East of the Licking River; it has 1000 inhabitants and is the county-seat of Campbell Co.  The United States Arsenal is located here, at the junction of the two rivers and was established about the year 1803-04.  Its public buildings are a Court House, one Methodist and one Presbyterian Church, a Cotton Factory, which when in operation, employs 3-400 hands.
