Important from Port Boyal~The Whole Coast now Deserted* [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 18 December 1861
Important from Port Boyal~The Whole Coast now Deserted* PHILADELPHIA, December 7.—The substance of the news from Port Royal by the Vanderbilt, at New York, is as follows:— General Viele's expedition had not yet sailed, but was expected to leave imtnediately upon the arrival of an expected accession of troops. Beaufort still remained unoccupied but was visited daily by officers of the army and navy, and the two gun boats kept watch and ward over her fortune*. During the few days which preceded the sailing of the Vanderbilt, stables had been constructed on Hilton Head Island for eleven thousand horses; numerous ordnance store houses had. been erected, and the entrenchments across the Island had been completed and the guns mounted. In addition to all this, several important reconnoissances had been made, which had resulted in establishing the fact that the whole seaboard from Tybee Island to Charleston is virtually in the hands of the National forces, it having been entirely dese...

A Telefiam from Jtanaatu. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 18 December 1861
A Telefiam from Jtanaatu. MANASSAS , Deo. 5—p. M.—It i* reported that a large body of the enemy crossed the Long Bridge last nig ht. , The design is,, doubtless , to make a feint, while more active movements are t^ing place in th* vicinity of Evansport. A gentleman who was in Alexandria on Tuesday ni ght, passed through the lines of the Federalists , and via Anandale came to our camps. He reports that there were on Wednesday only two or three brigades at the fatter place , and he saw no indications of an immediate advance. At that time hia estimate of the Federal force on thia side of the Potomac was forty-five thousand men. The commanding generals ot the Confederate army entertain the belief that an advance will be made , and that an important battle will yet take p lace before the' fall campai gn is closed. The northern sentiment is pressing McClellao* to do something at once , and from the tone of the journals it is growings in strength with every day. Within 1 the last t...

ULTEA ABOLITIOMSM IS 005-QBE88. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 18 December 1861
ULTEA ABOLITIOMSM IS 005-QBE88. The telegraphic accounts from Washington inform us that the fanatical antislavery members of both Houses of Congress are maturing a scheme of negro emancipation, and will organize at once a determined opposition to President Lincoln and his Administration unless they forthwith adopt the reckless measures dictated by their folly and fanaticism. The President is understood to adhere, with slight modifications, to the policy which has hitherto obtained towards slavery in the rebel States, and it is said will never assent to extreme, dangerous and unconstitutional measures. We hope these outgivings of telegraphic reporters and newspaper correspondents may be authoritative, *nd that the President may prove equal to the high responsibilities devolved upon him by the emergency. The success of our arms and the very existence of the Government will, in our opinion, depend mainly upon his firmness and courage in this trying hour; and while we would most h...

ABOLmoir [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 18 December 1861
ABOLmoir The disciples of Wm. Loyd Garrison and Fred.-Douglass in this community and throughout the North are growing more rabid with every rising sun on the question of emancipation, and are at present industriously engaged in denouncing Democrats and conservative men of all parties as ''Traitors" and "Secessionists" for lending their aid and influence to their abominably nefarious project of freeing and arming some four millions of semi-barbarian Congos. All the bar-room and streetcorner eight-by-ten politician are ready to "hang up the Constitution" as a useless and inconvenient garment, and to "go their death" (in every thing but soldering and bleeding,) to accomplish their cherished object of negro manumission and (we presume,) elevation or equality, for that will be the next proposal and undertaking of these restless and enterprising "reformers." Epithets and invectives, highsounding and furious, are showered with reckless prodigality on the law-abiding and constitution-...
WM. A. P0BTEB, ESQ [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 18 December 1861
WM. A. P0BTEB, ESQ This enterprising Merchant has just returned from the Eastern cities, after a three weeks' absence, with a second supply of Seasonable Goods. The first assortment he received this Fall, though unusually large, was soon exhausted, and rendered a second and heavier purchase necessary. This Mr. Porter has effected under very favorable circumstances, and with his accustomed taste and discrimination. The stock embraces the latest styles of Dress Goods for the ladies, Clothing for men and boys, Shoes, Hosiery and other indispensables for children, and Groceries and Notions for the million. Full shelves and low prices render PORTER'S an excellent place to lay in supplies, and the peop le seem to know it, as they crowd his establishment daily from all points of the compass. « «*» , •ga7*The Massachusetts Senator Sum ner, we see, is sharply censuring, in the Senate, Gen.

BEQBBTABY 0AMSBOFS I1P0ST [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 18 December 1861
BEQBBTABY 0AMSBOFS I1P0ST The secret history 'of the emasculation of Secretary Cameron's report by Presi* dent Lincoln, is a curious one. A Washington dispatch to the Tribune—the transmission of which by the wires was forbidden—tells the whole story : " The history of the difference between the President and the Secretary of War has at last taken this shape. The Secretary presented his report to Mr. Lincoln on Saturday. On Sunday afternoon he mailed it to the principal papers of the North and West , as is customary on the day preceding the reading of the Message.— On Sunday night the President, having found time to read it, found it not in his heart to agree with the Secretary's doctrine of the right and duty to make a military use of the slaves of rebels—to arm them , if necessary—and in all ways to use them as we would any other property of the Kebels to suppress this rebellion. He sent for Mr. Cameron, and required him to suppress this whole portion of his report, on the ...
EMANCIPATION IS REVOLUTION [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 18 December 1861
EMANCIPATION IS REVOLUTION So says a cotemporary, and so say we.— The emancipationists do not pretend that the General Government has the power under the Constitution to abolish slavery in the States, but contend that it may be done as a war measure. Very well, suppose that the slaves are declared free by the General Government, and in the process of time the Union and the Constitution are both restored, how are the slaves to be kept free in time of peace?—What power could prevent each Southern State from re-establishing slavery? Not the General Government, for it is admitted that it has no constitutional power to interfere with slavery in the States in times of peace. When a man advocates the policy of emancipation as a military necessity, you may be sure that he does not mean that the slaves shall be freed and afterwards enslaved; but he means to advocate a total and forcible change in our Constitution, which shall destroy all the rights of the States, and make the Federal G...
WHAT ABOLTHOllSTf WOULD RAVE -A TRUE PICTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 18 December 1861
WHAT ABOLTHOllSTf WOULD RAVE -A TRUE PICTURE. The Chicago Times truly remarks that in the early days of the rebellion, Abolitionism was pale with fear. It shrunk from sight and trembled lest an aroused people should hold it responsible , with its twin brother , secession , for the mischief brought upon the country. It justly feared that a people aroused to preserve their national existence mig ht throttle treason at the North as well as at the South. It, therefore, was quiet, and professed to be loyal. It even joined in the delusive "no party" cry, and seduced thousands of good men into the belief that it would urge no partisan politics during the war, but would support the Constitution and aid to preserve it. But this was hypocritical and foreign to its real nature. It therefore took advantage of the leniency which was extended to its past sins to gallop the nation into the disaster at Bull Eun , and now it is moving heaven and earth to force the people to believe that the Co...
THE " MILITARY NECESSITY." [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 18 December 1861
THE " MILITARY NECESSITY." The great "military necessity" of the day is for the Government to equip and arm all the white men, North and South, anxious to fight on the Union side. The Government, if it would or could do this, mig ht soon swell its active military force in the field to a MILLION of men. But notwithstanding this, there are crazy fanatics who are incessantly pressing upon the Government the arming of the negro slaves , as a "military necessity." They want above all things to see a "nigger fight," and cannot bear to have the Union without one. This is what made them bellow so loudly for the Union a short time since, and feel so vindictive toward every body that was not disposed to curse the whole South as they did. But since the prospect of making CUFFEE a Major, and SAMBO a Brigadier-General has rather waned of late, these "military necessity" men have grown astonishingly cool about the Union, and speak of our victories with all the cool indifference of disinte...
THE CONGRESSIONAL CAUCUS [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 18 December 1861
THE CONGRESSIONAL CAUCUS There has been no little curiosity excited among the Republicans and Democrats in . Washington, to know all about the caucus of Republican Members of Congress, held on Saturday night at the capitol. There is unquestionably a wide difference of opinion on the recommendations of the President in regard to slavery.— A portion of the Republicans are emphatically opposed to the Message, and are prepared to vote a censure of the policy of the President. If such an extreme measure is attempted, says the Times' correspondent, there will be an instant breach in the Republican ranks, extending into the country, which will be attended by an immediate reorganizaiion of the Democratic party throughout the North.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN? [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 18 December 1861
WHAT DOES IT MEAN? It is a somewhat singular coincidence that the Republican newspapers of this State, with few exceptions, came out—some guardedly, some openly—all about the same time, in favor of the Government declaring the emancipation of the slaves as a military necessity. What does this simultaneous movement mean f Were they instructed to feel the public pulse on this question, and ascertain whether the public mind is rife for a revolution in the policy and the form of our government? We apprehend that the time is not very far distant when these newspapers will curse the day that they were beguiled into making for themselves so ugly a record. «WThe Republicans of Pittsburgh, on Tuesday of last week, made the following nominations: Mayor, B. C. Sawyer, Jr.; Controller, John McCargo; Treasurer, William Eichbaum. Ex-Mayor Weaver has favorably responded to a call, signed b y the best men in the city, to- become an independent Union candidate in opposition ^- am ^^^m ¦ TeW^...
TUTTED STATES DIRECT TAX [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 18 December 1861
TUTTED STATES DIRECT TAX The direct tax assessed upon the valve cf all the real estate in the United States, to raise the annual sum of twenty millions of dollars, says the Philadelphia Ledger, has been overlooked by many persons, who seem to be under the impressson that there is but one national tax (the income tax) to be paid. By a law of Congress, approved August 5, it was provided, in order to raise the above mentioned annual sum, that each State should be compelled to furnish a certain proportion ofthat amount, which is to be collected in the following manner : Assessors appointed by the President and approved by the Senate, will, about the first ofMarch next, ascertain the value of each piece of real estate, the valuation being based upon the supposed money value of such property on the first day of April. Property exempt from taxation is that belonging to the United States or any State, or that is permanently or specially exempted from taxation by the laws of the State ...
