The Acquisitions Table: The National Pathfinder

The National Pathfinder (Nashville, Tennessee).  Mar. 5, 1860.

This appears to be mainly an advertising paper with small bits of news and poetry.  Even some of the news items are really puff pieces for local businesses.  According to a Nashville directory from 1860 it was published in the office of the Nashville Patriot which had a daily, tri-weekly and weekly edition.  This is only the second issue known of this title.  It gives a nice snapshot of the business scene of Nashville right before the war.
