RETURNED CALIFORNIA*!*. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 28 August 1861

RETURNED CALIFORNIA*!*. We had a long and pleasant interview, the other day, with a couple of "Greene county boys" who have just returned from California—JAMES M. DUNN and WM. WOODRUFF of Rough's creek. They have been absent nearly three years, and return, we presume, with a fair share of golden Ingots. Mr. DUNN'S health is greatly improved, and Mr. WOODRUFF looks " every inch a man." They were accompanied on their outward trip by THOMAS Ross, son to the Judge, and DANIEL HEATON of Morgan township. The friends of these latter gentlemen will be gratified to learn that they are excellently well, and are likely to return shortly, "bringing their sheaves with them."

MCCORMICK, Esq., of the Marietta (Ohio,) "Republican."—MAC, we are pleased to o^jeerve, has been nominated by the Democracy of his county to tbe Auditoishi p. this Fall, and is likely to be elected by an overwhelming majcriity. The office is worth some $2500 per annum fti Ohio.

GEN. J. B. HOWELL. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 28 August 1861

GEN. J. B. HOWELL. It will be seen, by an advertisement in another column, that Gen. Howell has applied for and is likely lo obtain an extension of the time for raising his Regiment. It is our sincere desire to see the General fill up his Regiment, in good measure, among the stalwart lads of Greene. His true manliness of character and uniform courtesy of bearing, not less than his experience and proficiency in military matters, would render him a capital officer. From our heart of hearts we hope that his laudable ambition to serve his country in this, her day of need, may be fully gratified. The Regiment, we understand, is to rendezvous at Uniontown.

A eREBNE COUNTY LAD IN THE LATE BATTLE IN MISSOURI. It will be seen, by the following letterthat Mr. WM. H. WELLS, tormerly of Waynesburg, and sou to Col. JNO. H. SVELLS, was in the late Battle at Springfield. Our knowledge of young WELLS, who was a brother typo and office companion of ours several years ago, assures us that he behaved himself well and valiantly in his maiden battle, which is known to the country as having been a singularly obstinate and bloody engagement : CAMP NEAR ROLLA, 1 August 20, 1861. j Dear Ma.-—On Saturday, August 10, a terrible battle was fought between the U. S. forces under Gen. Lyon, and the rebels under Gen. MuColloch. At the beginning of the fight our forces numbered about five thousand, and that of the enemy from twenty-five to thirty thousand.

GOOD SENSE. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 28 August 1861

GOOD SENSE. We commend the following paragraph to our readers. It contains a hint that all should act upon: "We hear complaints abroad of a disposition upon the part of those well able to pay as they go, to avail themselves of the p lausible excuse of dull times to avoid the prompt payment of little bills due to tradesmen, mechanics and others. This is to be regretted, Nothing contributes to weaken confidence and depress business activity as to withdraw from retail trade of any business its just due, in limes like the present, and we hold that the man who would urge the present troubles as an excuse for not paying small bills, when he can pay as well at one time as another, is guilty ot one of the worst moral wrongs attendant upon business operations in a season of general depression. Never hoard up money, when nothing is lo be gained by it, more especially when you havo debts which are overdue to parties dependent upon their earnings to sustain themselves and their families. ...

PEN AND SCISSORS. A NEW FLANK MOVEMENT.—It is understood that Gen. Sumner has been ordered to raise without delay a column of five or ten thousand Califoriiians, and to march them into Texas and Arkansas. He can get just such troops as he desires in twenty days after the order reaches the Pacific side. So in less than two months Texas and Arkansas will have their hands full with the necessities of their own position. TERRIBUE ACCIDENT.—A man by the name of William Porter lost his life on Muddy Creek, Crawford county, one day last week. A boat on which he was engaged got stuck on a bar, and a windl?ss was rigged with which to pull her ofi.^- While turning the crank" it slipped in so.ne way out of the hands of the parties working it, and the windless in the first revolution struck Porter on the breast, thiowing him forward.

ANOTHER TENDEK. The following preamble and resolution was passed by the Purse'y Home Guards, on Saturday the 24th inst.

Union Volunteers Shot. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 28 August 1861

Union Volunteers Shot. Two Union volunteers, named J. H. Debolt and F. Brooks, residents respectively ot Masontown and New Salem, Fayette county, were shot the other day while returning trom Bulltown, in North-Western Virginia, whither they had been with despatches for the commander of the federal troops at that point. It appears that on their return from Bulllov n, they were fired upon by a party of secessionists, concealed in the woods. Debolt received two bullets, one in the head and the other in the back. He had sufficient strength to shout to Brooks to avenge his death, and then dropping from his horse expired. The horse was also shot, and fell dead near where his master lay. Brooks received two wounds, one in the side and the other in -the shoulder, but succeeded in making his way to camp on horseback.— He was not, at last accounts expected to recover. A detachment was sent from the camp to the scene of the attack, and Debolt' * body recovered. It was sent to Fayette cou...

Breaking Up of a Rebel Depot on tbe Potomac. OD Saturday la«t LJawenantBudd, commanding the steamer Resolute, cleaned out one of the-rebel depots on the Potomac. It has been known tot some time that Herring Creek, on the Maryland side, and Mackhodoc Creek, opposite on the Virginia side, were the depots tor Maryland recruits to the rebel army in Virginia. The Resolute paid a visit to the latter creek, and having approached within three hundred yards of the shore, was tired upon by musketry. A boat was immediately lowered, and Lieutenant Budd, with twelve men, landed. The rebels fled at their approach, and were pursued for a mile, but made their escape. Two muskets and a knapsack which teey threw away during their flight, were picked up. Upon returning to the house, abundant evidence it had been ased as a rebel rem* dezvous, and papers containing important imfortnation, were found.

The English Pleet aud the Blockade. The alleged semi-official announcement in the Richmond paper*, says a dispatch to the Press, that Admiral Dundas intends to take his fleet into Charleston regardless ot President Lincoln's blockade, is ol no possible significance even if the statement is uue, for tbe war vessels of any nation with which, we are at peace have a right to enter our ports notwithstanding the blockade, which is intended to operate . .against commerce with the disloyalists.— A number of the most distinguished army officers of Europe, and particularly in England and France, have tendered their services to the United States, but it is not known that any of them will be accepted. One of them, in his letter, says lhat he regards the conteat as between civilization and barbarism, and his love for the tormer controls his actions. There is good authority for saying that there is no truth in a recently reported conversation between Lord Lyons and Secretary Seward, on lhe ...
