NEGEO EMANCIPATION [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 11 December 1861
NEGEO EMANCIPATION The tone of the fanatical Abolition prints ' and politicians becomes bolder daily, and affords confirmation of the fact that their only object in this war is to exterminate slavery. Many, if not all of them, would evidently prefer a final separation and a Northern Republic to a reconstruction of the Union on the old basis, as it was founded by Washington, Jefferson, Madison, and their compatriots.— "No union with slaveholders" is their motto, and the arming and emancipation of the slaves their programme. If their mad policy is countenanced and inaugurated by the Administration, the country •will be hopelessly dismembered and "chaos will come again." We await with anxiety the enunciation of the President's purpose on this subject. If he is faithful to his official obligations, all will be well, and we shall augur an early termination of the war. If he is not, God only knows what lies hidden in the future.. We shrink appalled from the contemplation of a stru...
HINTON BO WAN HELPER [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 11 December 1861
HINTON BO WAN HELPER This notorious individual, the author of thatjAbolition campaign .document known as the "IMPENDING CRISIS"—i. c, the "crisis" now upon the country—has received from the President the lucrative appointment of Consul to Buenos Ayres.— We marvel at ' this selection. Instead of being thus honored, this fellow should have been compelled to shoulder a musket, and placed wherever danger is mos . t imminent in a war which his slanders we're so instrumental jn bringing about.— Lancaster Intelligencer. aQy-Inatearl of being elevated Jo a place of profit and dignity, he should have been "strung up" as an enemy to the peace and unity of the country. No more dangerous men in the community than abolition agitators of the "Helper" school.
JUDGE GILMOBE [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 11 December 1861
JUDGE GILMOBE Hon. S. A. GILXORE , on his late retirement, from the President Judgeship of this j Judicial District, was tendered a complimentary supper by the members of the \ Washington Bar, " as ari evidence of their ' respect and esteem for him as a gentleman, j and as a testimony of their appreciation of the impartiality and ability with which he has discharged" hi8 public duties.—: Learned in the law, with an intellect of great quickness and vigor, and a mercy \ whose "quality was not strained ," few men ' have filled the position with greater ac- i ceptahility to both the Bar and the peo- j pie, or with more conspicuous ability.

CLOTHING FOB THE MILLION [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 11 December 1861
CLOTHING FOB THE MILLION Our friend and neighbor NATTV CLARK , has evidently made up his mind that the good people hereabputs shall not suffer for Clothing the present Winter, and has accordingly just received a second supply of warm, elegant and fashionable garments, which re-fill his shelves and renders his assortment all that the needy could wish it. In point of cheapness, his "duds" are hard to beat, having been bought by an excellent and experienced judge, and bought for c.\sn, which always gives the dealer a great advantage in making his purchases. Go and look at his selections, if you are at all skeptical about his cheap buying or his taste. Our word for it, he knows a good and handsome "rag" when he sees it.

PBOMOTED. Our townsman, MILTON M. KENT, who went out as a Lieutenant in the "Greene County Rangers," has been appointed Adjutant of the 8th Regiment of Pennsylvania Volunteers. Lieut. KENT is one ofthe best drilled officers in the volunteer service, and we are glad to see his fine, soldierly qualities properly appreciated. His Regiment is in the van of Gen.

EVANS, has been made a Lieu-I tenant in the Ringgold Cavalry.
WAYNESBUBG COMMON SCHOOLS , [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 11 December 1861
WAYNESBUBG COMMON SCHOOLS , Neighbor COOKE of the Republican administers something of a castigation in his last paper to the School Directors of our village, who have sold the school-house belonging to the . District, have failed to provide a new one, and have left the children to get instruction where they can and as they can. As a consequence, the children of such as are unable to pay tuition in private schools are wholly without the advantages intended to be afforded by the State to all classes of our people by our liberal system of Common School education. We do not know who our Directors are, nor do we care to know ; but we do know they are not doiny their duty and richly deserve a weekly lampooning. Blaze away at them, brother COOKE, "we'll hold your bonnet," and help you if you need it. We respectfully suggest that such of the Directors as are unwilling to do the "clean thing" resign at once, and give the people a chance to get men who will discharge their duties faithf...
THE JaSSIDBFTS ItESSAGE [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 11 December 1861
THE JaSSIDBFTS ItESSAGE We layth'ift important document before our readers in to-day's Messenger. As a State paper, it is one ofthe weakest we have ever had from the national Executive, being, as a cotemporary well remarks, a "dry, plain, rambling and common-place" production. It will be seen that the President is not, as yet, prepared to adopt the emancipation and negro-arming policy of the Abolition disunionists. How soon he may be ready to recommend and inaugurate it, however, we are left to conjecture. If he is as feeble at the knees as we fear he is, it will not be a great while before he will be able to go the whole "nigger figure." A little courage and back-bone, on the part ofthe President, at this juncture, would have put an effectual quietus on the crazy and mischievous fanatics who seem bent on the ruin and disintegration of the country. From our heart, we regret that Mr. LINCOLN has not spoken out in more manlv and decided tones in their rebuke.

* TIHTY-8ETE5TH 00KGHES8. WASHINGTON , f Ttecember 2.—According to general report, the Presi-I dent's message is no^. yet finished , . hence it is almost ' certain that it will I not be communicated to Congress till to-morrow. House.—The house was opened at noon with prayer, by the Rev. Mr. Stockton. The roll of members was then called by the Clerk. One hundred and fourteen members answered to their names, including Messrs. Sargeant and Phelps, of California, Mr. Iloope, of Massachusetts, Mr. Wilson, of Iowf. Mr. Bernheisel, delegate from Utah, and Mr. Crablebaugh, delegate from Nevada. Mr. Dawes, of Massachusetts, moved that, Mr. Maynard, of Tennessee, be sworn in as the member from the Second District of Tennessee.— Mr. Stevens of Pennsylvania, said that Mr. Maynard may have been properly elected, but we all know the fact that Tennessee was, so far as it could be, out of the Union, and as there were several other cases, he thought that the subject brought forward by Mr. ...

TA«W *AU QmrtmrisAi* i» H*sf. —Tte ( Navy Department is in receipt of a tiespatch from Capt. Dupont, conjoining fhe , i report of Commander John Roger, of Po* j cahontas, dated Sunday, iffovember 24, off Tvbed Island. Roger! states that this point entirely controls the ship channel to the Savannah river, which is only within five hundred yards of the fort, and the possession of it closes the harbor of Sa- ] vannah "as tight as a cork," and that j Fort Pulaski is at the mercy of our forces , the moment the latter desire to take it.— ' Also that reliable accounts informed him] that Savannah was being evacuated by the people as fast as possible, fearing, probably, that Commander Rogers would attempt to take possession of it. He further states that Commodor Tatnall, of the rebel fleet, had given it as his opinion that the entire rebel defences of the Southern coast must be abandoned, as they could not stand the armament of our fleet.
