The follwing is from “The life of Hon. Samuel Jones Tilden: governor of the state of New York …”, by William Mason Cornell:
Even after his admission to the bar, Mr. Tilden still manifested a deep interest in politics; and in 1844, when James K. Polk was candidate for the Presidency, and Silas Wright for governor of the State of New York, he in conjunction with John L. O’Sullivan started the Democratic newspaper called ” The Daily News.” This was really a campaign paper advocating the principles of the Democracy, and the election of Polk and Wright to the offices just named.
