From A History of the City of Newark New Jersey Embracing Practically Two and a Half Centuries 1666 - 1913:

For a half century and more, beginning with the spring of 1791, the newspapers of Newark were its most potent literary influence. Curing that period some of the best-edited journals in the United States throve here. The first publication of any sort produced in Newark was the half dozen or so copes of Hugh Gaine's New York Gazette and Weekly Mercury, issued during the fall of 1776, when Gaine, fearing to remain longer in New York because of the approach of the British, moved his printing Paraphernalia to Newark and who then, concluding that the patriot cause was practically lost, returned to New York and resumed his newspaper, but as an organ of the King.
