Original Prospectus: "We boldly... avow ourselves a Protestant journal. Ireland with England undissolubly united." 

On 02 Apr 1842 a letter from the editor to the public informed them of the paper's transfer "into the hands of the Papists." Thereafter the paper supported Catholic emancipation, and was usually supportive of O'Connell. It also employed a "corps of reporters" to concentrate on "home events."
