THE MEETIHG [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 25 December 1861

THE MEETIHG The Democratic Meeting, held at the Court House on Tuesday Evening last, was not only largely attended, but was one of the most pleasant and harmonious political assemblages we have witnessed for years. The speeches of Messrs. PURMAN and MILLER were forcible, eloquent and patriotic, and met the hearty approval of the audience. The Resolutions bear upon every topic of public interest at present, and we are happy to say embody the opinions we have, from time to time, expressed upon the subject-matters of which they treat.— Confining the war to the objects set forth in the Crittenden Resolutions at the Extra Session of Congress, the Democratic party are almost a unit in its favor, and will accord Mr. LINCOLN'S Administration an honest and cordial support in every constitutional effort to crush out the Rebellion and vindicate the majority ofthe laws. THE UNION MUST BE PRESERVED, regardless of the sacrifices its perpetuation may impose. Its value is incalculable, and we...

A OOWABDLY 8t [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 25 December 1861

A OOWABDLY 8t_A_ . One ofthe many miserable sad unintelligible scribblers who skulk behind anonymous signatures to dish up their malice and dirtiness for the readers of the "Greene County Republican" makes an attempt this weak through the columns of that delectable sheet to "chaw up" the Senior Editor of the Messenger. Dragging nastily through a half-column of vagaries and twattle, no one can read it without reaching the conclusion that the writer is an ass who wanted to say something, but eould'nt and dicTnt. Like the Irishman at the Fair, we make it a rule "when we see a head, to hit it," but as this fellow has none, it is useless to strike. Besides, we have a constitutional aversion to kicking anonymous, small-fry penny-a-liners into notice. If any man of sense, character or principle in the Opposition has aught to say about or against us, and will publish it over his own signature, we shall pay him our respects with a will. But once for all let us say that our readers will...

Judge F. is a native of "little Greene," was for several years a member of the Legislature from the neighboring county of Fayette, then Charge de Affairs to Denmark, and now Associate Judge of Utah Territory. We are gratified to know that he has discharged the duties of these varied and responsible positions with great acceptability. In private life, we have rarely met a more courteous and high-toned gentleman. We had along and exceedingly interesting conversation with the Judge on the institutions, condition, habits, character and prospects of the Mormons, the climate, productions Stud physical features of their Territory, and other kindred topics, the substance of which we may give our readers at another time. Until the creation of the new territory of Nevada, the Judge was assigned to the Carson Valley District, and ha...

AN0THEB ABOLITION PROJECT [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 25 December 1861

AN0THEB ABOLITION PROJECT Senator WILSON, of Massachusetts, has reported or is about to report a bill for abolishing slavery in the District of Columbia. "Its provisions," a telegraphic correspondent says, "meet the approbation of the Cabinet officers, and a number of members of both Houses and several military men high in position. Should it become a law other measures leading in the same direction may follow." So it goes. Give these fanatical mischief-ma kers the reins, and they would soon drive the country to perdition. Let the press and the people speak out at once and in emphatic tones in condemnation of their reckless and dangerous schemes.

THE DEMOOBATIO PARTY Iff THE PBESEBT CRISIS. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 25 December 1861

THE DEMOOBATIO PARTY Iff THE PBESEBT CRISIS. The Ohio Statesman, of a late date, remarks wi\h great truth that "it is not the maintenance of the Constitution nor the preservation of the Union of the thirtyfour States now existing, but the negro and his status that seem likely to absorb the greatest attention and consume most of the time of Congress during the present session. There are fearful indications that a party may this very winter obtain the control of Congress and the Executive, which will not hesitate to trample the Constitution under foot and wreck the Union for the sake of effecting their scheme.Of negro emancipation. At this momentous crisis, the country must look to the old Democratic Union party for its salvation. If there is no hope here, all is lost. Never in all the past was there so urgent a «all upon the Democracy to aivake to a realizing sense of its mission and its duty ; for never were the Constitution and iUnion assailed with such sleepless vigilance an...

A Whole Bebel Oamp Captured—Thirteen Hundred Prisoners with Arms, Wagons, Powder. &c„ Ao. ST. LOUIS, Dec. 20.—Further information received from the west this morning, is to the effect that in addition to the expedition of Gen. Pope against the enemy near Clinton, another part of his force, under Col.
