Interesting Record: Caledonian Mercury, The;
Described as the most "ancient general newspaper in Scotland" (Mitchell's 1846). The Caledonian Mercury appeared in 1720, and was a "Jacobite paper which became the organ of the Highland Army in '45, and which was printed and owned by Thomas Ruddiman from 1729" (Gillespie). In November 1829, there was "an extraordinary dispute" between the editors of The Caledonian Mercury and The Scotsman, arising out of attacks the former was allegedly making continually on the latter. It even resulted in a duel between the editors" (Couper, SNQ 8:3s).
