MOSCOW A FIBE-DOOMED OITT. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 1 January 1862

MOSCOW A FIBE-DOOMED OITT. §tlni ftalfam$< UF all tho cities of the modern epoch, and perhaps in ancient times , Moscow has suffered the most fearful-' ly from fires. In 1536, it was nearly consumed, and two thousand persons perished. But this calamity was trifling to the dismal catastrophe of 1571, when beleaugered by tho Tartars. They fired the suburbs , and a furious wind carried the flames into the heart of the capital, which the Inhabitants could not quit except to die by tho sword. A Dutch merchant , ¦ who was present at the scene , and whoso account is preserved in the Harleian MSS., speaks of the event as like a storm of fire , owing not only to the wind, but to the streets being "paved with great fir trees set close together, oily and resinous, while the houses were of the same , material.— Thousands of the country people had taken refuge in the city from the public enemy. The poor creatures ran into tho market-place, and were "all roasted there, in such sort...

A SCENE IN C0NGBESS. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 1 January 1862

A SCENE IN C0NGBESS. Mr. Conway, of Kansas, rising to a question ef privilege, alluded to a dialogue between himself and Mr. Fouke, on Thursday. The former had included the battle of Belmont as in the series of defeats to our arms. Mr. Fouke had ineffectually asked Mv. Harding, who had the floor, to yield it to him, that he might in his own language nail the falsehood to tho counter. Mr. Conway had exp lained that he obtained his information from the newspapers, and, as he did not at that time hear the offensive remark with distinctness, he now desired to know whether Mr. Fouke intended to make the charge of falsehood personall y applicably to him. Mr. Fouke, of Illinois, replied that he never heard of any newspaper paragraph to that effect, excepting in the Chicago lYlbune, which was afterwards contradicted. He then made a brief statement of the battle of Belmont, to show that it was unkind in Mr. Conway to insist on characterizing it as a defeat. He would permit the gentle...

The Enemy at Centreville. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 1 January 1862

The Enemy at Centreville. A contraband, who came within our lines the other day, reports that the enemy has, at Centreville , a fort or earthwork for every letter in the al phabet, and designated by the letters, also a strong fort called Beauregard, and one called Davis , besides another not yet finished, and unnamed. The forts are connected by rifle pits, and the embankments are so prepared that the field artillery can be wheeled into the embrasures, the caissons being disposed in the rear. There is a drill of the artillery every day in p lacing the guns and caissons in position. There are four guns to each fort. In Fort Beauregard there are three rifled guns pointing down the Fairfax road.— There are two regiments of colored men at Centreville, under the command of Jordan, an old colored veteran of 1812, having been a drmmer boy under General Jackson. One of these number eleven hundred.— Two other colored regiments were sent to Missouri since the last battle there. These reg...

WHY HE IS NOW A UNION MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 1 January 1862

WHY HE IS NOW A UNION MAN. A very intelligent Maryland gentleman, who has always been a Democrat, and in the last campaign was an ardent Breckinrid ge man, was in this city last spring, and was at the time one of the most ultra Secessionists to be found. He shortl y afterwards left here on a business tour through South America , and returned a few days since. Ho is now in favor of preserving the Union at every hazard. When asked what caused tho change in his views , he replied that a few years since he was through South America, and, as a citizen of the United States , was everywhere treated with the highest consideration and respect. This time everyhas thing changed. In every little State of Central and South America he was insulted, and when ho spoke of his nationality was laughed at and fannted with the rupture here.— "You talk of the United States ," said they; "you have no country now: you who have been so boastful. You are no longer in a condition to fit out fillibuste...

Hushed is the tumult of tho fray, The powder smoke is blown away; Faint, broken shouts fall on my ear, My comrades are all far from here. Yet, though my comrades all are far. There gleams full many a; golden star, And angel bands light up, on high, The eternal watch-fires of the sky. On i comrades, brave, to victory I Farewell, ye banners, high and free I I can no longer be with you ; Another camp is near in view! • White banners, in the moonlight spread, Float through the heavens above my head, Slow sinking now I see them wave And flutter o'er a soldier's grave.

The Effect of Pardon. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 1 January 1862

The Effect of Pardon. In the garrison town of Woolwich , a few years ago, a soldier was about to be brought before the commanding officer of the regiment, for some misdemeanor. The officer entering the soldier's name, said, "Here is , again; what can we do with him; ho has gone through almost every ordeal V The sergeant-major, M. B., apologized for intruding, and said , "There is one thing which has never been done with him, sir." "What is that, sergeant-major ?" "Well, sir , he has never been forgiven." "FORGIVEN !" said the Colonel. "Here is his case entered." "Yes, but the man is not yet before you, and you can cancel it." After the Colonel had reflected for a few minutes, he ordered the man to be brought in, when he was asked what he had to say, relative to tho charges brought against him. "Nothing, sir," was the reply," "only that I am sorry for what I have done." After making some suitable remarks, the Colonel said , "Well, we have resolved to forgive you." The soldier...

Mrs. Douglas and Her Children. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 1 January 1862

Mrs. Douglas and Her Children. Very few people indeed, says tho Detroit Free Press , have been placed in a more trying position and sacrificed more for the sake of the Union than has Mrs. Douglas. She has persistenly refused to entertain the proposition, forwarded to her by a special messenger, under a flag of truce; from the Governor of North Carolina, asking that tho two sons of the late Senator Douglas be sent South to save their extensive estates in Mississippi from confiscation. If she refused a large property would be taken from the children, and in her present reduced circumstances they may thereby eventually be placed in straitened circumstances. Here, then , was an appeal made directly to her tender regard for them, which , if she should refuse, would work disastrousl y against them in after years. But her answer was worthy of herself and of her late distinguished husband. If the rebels wish to make war upon defenceless children , and take away the all of little orp...

England and the Slidell Affair-The Probable Course to be Pursued. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 1 January 1862

England and the Slidell Affair-The Probable Course to be Pursued. PHILADELPHIA , December 19.—An editorial in this morning's Herald says: "Notwithstanding tho flying rumors that the Cabinet at Washington had decided unconditionally to surrender Mason and Slidell , we are in a position to state that no such conclusion has been come to by the Administration, inasmuch as no such demands have been made , nor had any communication whatever upon the subject reached tho President or Mr. Seward up to eleven o'clock last night, either from England or from Lord Lyons." The Queen's messenger had not arrived in Washington up to that time , nor is there the least intention on the part of the Cabinet to deliver up Mason and Slidell under any circumstances now contemplated. The excitement in England does not appear to create any alarm in the mind of Mr. Lincoln or his constitutional advisers. On the contrary, they are said to take the matter very easy. PHILADELPHIA , December 19.— The lime...

Mr. Lincoln's Sentiments. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 1 January 1862

Mr. Lincoln's Sentiments. A Washington correspondent says that Mr. Lincoln , last week, uttered tho following words to a friend who had called upon him: "Emancipation would be equivalent to a John Brown raid on a gigantic scale. Our position is smv rounded with a sufficient number of dangers already. Abolition would throw against us irrecovably, thefour States of Missouri/"Kentuck y, Vir- ' ginia and Maryland, which it is cost- I ing the nation such efforts to retain. I We have our hands full as it is , arid if there is to be any such suicidal legislation, we mi ght as well cut loose at once , and begin taking up the arteries to prevent our bleeding to death." - GKNERAL BANKRUPT LAW.—A special committee was raised at the July session charged with the subject of a general bankrupt law, and there is good ground to expect favorable action upon it. A committee of gentlemen of the highest character, representing the Western and Atlantic States, has been selected for the purpose...

A Mild Winter in Prospeot, [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 1 January 1862

A Mild Winter in Prospeot, Jivery year about this time , the question starts up as to whether there is to be a close or open winter , and the idiosyncrasies of the beaver , the squirrel, and other animals that are supposed to know a thing or two about the weather , aro consulted as carefully as were the oracles of old. The Milwaukie. Wisconsin says, "But we think we have a sure thing this time, that it is going to be a mild winter. Joel Hood , the celebrated mountaineer, who has been all over the North-western territories , the Pacific States, and the Sandwich Islands, and who probably knows as much about the peculiarities of wild animals (not to say anything about their furs) as any other man in tho West, stakes his reputation upon tho prediction that we are to have a mild winter , with the prevailing winds from the South for the next six months. He bases his knowledge upon the doings of the muskrats , beavers, and other animals that fall. He also says that it has been redu...

»??¦ The Cobra de Capello in Ceylon. A mend of the author s saw a man bitten in 1854 by a cobra de capello, which he had seized by the head and tail. The blood flowed, and intense pain appeared to follow almost immediately; but with all -expedition, the friend of the sufferer undid his waistcloth, and took from it two snake-stones, each of the size of a small almond, intensely black and highly polished, though of an extremely light substance. These he applied, one to each wound inflicted by the teeth of the serpent, to which they attached themselves closely, the blood that oozed from the bitee being rapidly imbibed by the porus texture of the article applied. The stones adhered tenaciously for three or four minutes, the wounded man's companion in the meanwhile rubbing his arm downwards from tb» shoulder towards the tingm. At length the snake-stones dropped1 off of their own accord; the suffering of the man appeared to subside; he twisted his fingers till the joints cracked, ...

sensible A Hint to Young Women. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 1 January 1862

sensible A Hint to Young Women. A , prudent man knows how to estimate outside adornings and artificial smiles at their real worth, which is, in fact, very low. He knows that the gay, dressy flirt often makes a slatternly wife and a still worse mother; that the girl who tries to make herself so very agreeable and bewitching while angling for a husband frequently turns out a very vixen when she has caught her fish; that the attractions she exhibits in public are, in most instances, the very reverse that are to be seen at home; in short, that though she may he such an one as many young men love to flirt with, she is the very last whom prudence would select for a wife. A female whose sole recommendation is a pretty face and a showy dress, may excite a little attention ; but when it is discovered that the attraction is external, and all its emptiness within, then the prudent man shies off, saying to himself, "This is not the girl to make a wife of."—Briiith Workman.
