Political Ellstory of Erie County.
The county of Eric was organized in 1800,
being a portion of what was formerly Alle
gheny. Crawford, Warren,-Venango and the
other North West counties were organized at
the same time.. The first court ip Erie coun- .
ty . was held in 1803. The first newspaper
was the Mirror, commenced May 21st, 181: 1 3,,
by Geo. Wyeth. Of the journals now in ex
istence, the Gazette was the first established,
its publication haying been ,commenced by
Jos. 31. Sterrett in January, 1820. The Oh.
server was -first issued in May, 1810, T. B.
Barnum editor. Iu March, 1824, the Court
house was destroyed by fire, with all its rec
ords. Very little political information is4t- .
joinable bytand the files of the Gazette, com
mencing in 1820, so that we ate unable to
give a complete record of eve n ts pi ions to
that period. )41
In that year Erie, Crawtord,'tttfa:..ango,

congressional district. The Senattifial
