The New-Harmony Gazette was created to interpret the experimental socialistic community established at New-Harmony, Indiana by the Welsh manufacturer and philanthropist, Robert Owen. Edited chiefly by Robert L. Jennings, Frances Wright, and two of Robert Owen's sons, this eight-page weekly was devoted to the exposition of Robert Owen's theories on the social system, to articles on social and religious topics by other members of the Community, and to a record of the progress of the experiment and the life at New-Harmony, and is an excellent source for study of this trial of communistic theory. By fall of 1828, the Community had disintegrated and in October a new series of the paper was begun. Its new title, the New-Harmony and Nashoba Gazette, or the Free Enquirer, reflected a new interest-an educational experiment with freed Negroes on a tract in western Tennessee called Nashoba. The new paper, a.
(Cont.) socialist and agnostic journal, was somewhat broader in scope than its predecessor. Soon the Nashoba experiment failed also and early in 1829 Miss Wright and Robert Dale Owen took the periodical to New York, where it was conducted for six years. The editors were the chief contributors. Controversy was its main forte; it discussed religion, politics, sociology, and education, and advocated feminism, socialism, agnosticism, and other "isms." The advocacy of these doctrines, generally disapproved of by the American public, probably accounts for its failure to achieve success. Cf. American periodicals, 1741-1900.
