The Newburyport Herald (1797–1915) was a newspaper published in Newburyport, Massachusetts in the 19th century. It began in 1797 with the merger of two previous newspapers, William Barrett's Political Gazette and Angier March's Impartial Herald. Employees included abolitionist William Lloyd Garrison and James Akin.
In 1805, American cartoonist and satirist James Akin published his now-infamous 'Infuriated Despondency', a satire of an altercation he had with former employer Edmund Blunt in Newburyport, in which Blunt hurled a skillet at Akin and hit an innocent passerby.
