"The first periodical to print on Irish matters...the magazine ran for 21 issues and was the first to contemplate literary works published in the city. Anonymous local poets contributed and essays on local writers were penned, including ‘Memoirs of Farquar’ on the Derry-born playwright. Articles opposing slavery began to appear later in the magazine’s lifetime, and William Drennan, the 'United Irishman', contributed a piece rejecting the incoming Act of Union" (Culture Northern Ireland).
