The Bee

 15 July 1835

Volume 1 Number 8

A Weekly Journal, Devoted To News, Politics, Literature, Agriculture, etc. Conducted by James Dawson. Printed by J. Stiles. Water Street Pictou.

Published in Pictou from 1835 to 1838, this was one of the earliest newspapers in Nova Scotia to appear outside Halifax. It was printed on the press of — and may have been the successor to — the Colonial Patriot, Pictou's first newspaper (1827). Like its predecessor, The Bee supported progress and reform, promoted agricultural interests, and was considered so radical that it was banned from the Halifax Exchange Reading Room in 1837.

Issues from 1835, 1836, 1837 and 1838
