This collection of about 100 newspaper editorials from the mid-1830s can get a little repetitive, and there's no harm in skimming some of the later ones, but on the whole they give insight into an incredible mind writing at an incredible period of political thought.

William Leggett was the editor of the New York Post when it was the mouthpiece of the working-class Democratic Party, but he eventually left to form his own newspapers when his uncompromising antislavery views upset the party bigwigs.
