What Breaking the Blockade Means. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 28 August 1861

What Breaking the Blockade Means. John Brig ht told the British the other day : Now, recollect what breaking the blockade means. It means a war with the United States, and I don't think mysel! that it would be cheap to break the blockade, at the cost of a war with the United States. I think that the cost of war with the United States, would give, probably, half wages for a very considerable time, to those persons in Lancashire who would be out of work it there wa% no cotton, to say nothing at all of the manilest injustice and wrong against all international law, that a legal and effective blockade should be interlered .

Bad Conduct at Bull Run. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 28 August 1861

Bad Conduct at Bull Run. No Pennsylvanian can have read Gen. McDowell's official report of the late battle, without the blush of shame and morlification mantling his cheek at tho infamous and cowardly behavior ot the Fourth Pennsylvania regiment, whodeliberately marched oft" the battle-ground "to the sound of the enemy's cannon." The regiment was from the eastern part of the Stale, ami we have yet to see any defence of its disgraceful and untimely cowardice. While we do not attempt to palliate the enormity of the offence of this disgraced regiment, we yet do not see exactly how tbe New York papeis have so much reason to complain of it when many of their own troops behaved almost as badly. Varian's battery, belonging to the N. Y. Eighth regiment, behaved with equal cowardice. They insisted on their discharge, were deaf lo all appeals to remain, abandoned their battery to be worked by volunteer Germans, and sneak ed oil the field ot honor in company with the Pennsylvania Four'...

^ mmm . , ^ . a- - • :_, A Strange Statement—The Cai^^^^ Richmond after the Battle otuJ^^KHF A letter from Louisville, rh which, however, it is proper to say we place no credit, says that James Hewett, Esq., of the firm of Hewett. Norton & Co., Liverpool, New York and New Orleans, has lately arrived from Richmond, and is au« thoiily for the following statement, now rumored extensively about the city : Since the battle of Mtnassas the utmost demoralization and disorganization among the army and financial distress among the people generally have existed. The city was filled with men and women from the more distant Slates, hunting information ot relatives—information which owing to the secrecy maintaineu by the Government, they could not obtain.— No report of the killed and wounded had: been made up, nor was it likely that any ever would. The greatest distress prevailed, and complaints wete loud, deep and earnest. Soldiers were demanding their release and their pay, refus...

The National Hymn. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 28 August 1861

The National Hymn. The committee who have been acting as judges upon the question of a national hymn have reported that they have received twelve hundred manuscripts, and that although some ot them have a degree of of poetic excellence that will probably place them high in public favor as lyrical compositions, no one ol them is well suited for a national hymn. They, therefore, make no award.

Desperate . [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 28 August 1861

Desperate . The Presbytery of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, (O. S.) disapprove the course of the Comuissiouers from the Southern Churches to the General Assembly ; it being, in their estimation, altogether too mild. They therefore. Resolved, That so far as is known to us as a Presbytery, there never was a people more united, fixed and determined than the Presbyterian Chnrch an.i the whole people ot' the South, to resist to the last extremity, even to our extermination, Northern misrule and tyranny, and to this we hereby p ledge our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honors. This is desperate. Its authors seem not to , know "what spirit they are of." And they do not know the people's mind; that is, they, do not know how the people will teel and voie, when they shall be relieved from the pressure of the conspirators, and find themselves protected iu the enjoyment ot freedom's rights. Such resolutions as the a!iove affect us but little.—Presbyterian Banner JK2?*A well known Physician a...

JUDICIAL CANDIDATES. — A DEVICE OF THB ENEMY. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 28 August 1861

JUDICIAL CANDIDATES. — A DEVICE OF THB ENEMY. "The attempt of our Republican friends in this District and county to effect a selection of Judicial incumbents, without reference to party nominations, furnishes proof as well of their adroitness and man* agemeat, as «f the weakness and hopelessness of their cause, it is a policy which they never before favored by their teachings or illustrated by their example, and which they would note be very far from inaugurating if it were not expected to result in tbe preferment of a prominent and zealous member of their own party, who, while an estimable gentleman in all the relations of life, can furnish a life-time, record o. " active and consistent hostility to tbe men and measures of the Democratic party. That any higher motive than tucceu actuated the Republican leaders in this manoeuvre, no one can believe who knows aught of their character or tactics.

ANOTHER COMPAHT "FOB. THE ¦ WAR." We were present at Rice's Landing on Friday week and witnessed the departure of Gen. B ARKER'S Cavalry Company for the seat of War. The Company was recruited, principally, in the Eastern portion of this county, and is composed of young men of great moral worth and fine physique. If they do not acquit themselves well and leave *' their mark" on the enemy, we are mistaken in our impressions. Much deep feeling was evinced by both soldiers and spectators on the occasion.— Gen. MOORHBAD, of Pittsburgh, who happened to be on the Boat at the time^ addressed lhe assemblage in a few pertinent remarks, and Rev. I. N. CART committed the departing volunteers to the God of men and of battles iu an eloquent and appropriate prayer.

THE WAR AMD ITS RELATION TO THE POLITICS OF THE COUNTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 28 August 1861

THE WAR AMD ITS RELATION TO THE POLITICS OF THE COUNTRY. Under this caption we had partially penned an editorial for this week's paper, when we by accident met with the following excellent article on the saint! subject trom our cotemporary of the "Allentown Democrat." It so nearly embodies our own views, that we transfer ittoourc.il. umns, and solicit for it the attentive perusal ot the reader. As citizens, law-abiding and loyal to the Constitution, we insist that the public liberties shall not be endangered by flagrant and;frequent violations of the organic law. Let the war be prosecuted vigorously, but not in habitual disregard of the privileges and guarantees of" the Constitution, for in respect for them lies the safety of the people, not less than their happiness. But here is the article :— "We hear a great deal said about the obliteration of party lines. As far as the support ot the Government against rebellion is concerned, there is but one party in the North. Goto lhe r...
