"""— m ¦>.»-.» - The Late Battle in Kentucky. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 1 January 1862
"""— m ¦>.»-.» - The Late Battle in Kentucky. Fresher accounts of the late engagement of our advance on the south of Green river, make it one of the most brilliant and dicisive victories during the war, and gives a good augury of what is yet to come. About three hundred and fifty men of Willich's regiment, led by Lieutenant Colonel Von Webers, drove back over three thousand rebel cavalry, artillery and infantry. They were first attacked by a regiment of Texas cavalry, which they repulsed and followed, when they were drawn into an ambush and were fired at from all sides by the rebel infantry. The Federals returned the fire vigorously, and stood their ground until the rebels fell back, leaving all their dead and most of their wounded on the field. No reinforcements reached Lieut. Col. Von Weber's command, as reported, until after the engagement was over. Stone's Louisville battery supported the Federals from the North side of Green river, firing at a very long range from ...

The news from these localities, says the New York Post, «f yesterday, is very interesting, but we are not permitted, for prudential reasons, to develop eome of the points. But the general statement maybe made, which comes from very high authority, that before many days Savannah, and probably Charleston, (all that remains of it,) will be in possession df our forces.-Tybee Island is occupied by a considerable force, estimated at one thousand men, who are to throw up batteries with which to operate against Fort Pulaski, if they should ever be needed. It is understood that Pu'aski and Savannah will not be approached in this direction. The details of the operations around Charleston have not been so fully developed. The war steamer Savannah and three or four gunboats lay off Tybee, within two miles o...

News from the Enemy. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 1 January 1862
News from the Enemy. Col. Forney telegraphs the following to Saturday's Press:—1: I have been conversing with a party who came directl y from Centreville within the last few days. He states that the rebel Generals have 75,000 men at Centreville—that the heig hts in the rear of the town are elaborately and strongl y fortified. The roads to Centreville are considered impi egnable, and it is said tho enemy has even gone so far as to mine the approaches. The forces are all well drilled and enthusiatic, but are enduring many privations in consequence of the poverty of the country and the difficulties of transportation. They will be compelled to fi g ht or starve , as their condition la rapidly approaching one of despration. The practice of firing upon pickets and making sorties is onl y intended to draw the "Yankees" into an advance. They constantly wonder why the Yankees do not attack. It is often a matter of wonder to them that Mc-Clellan is not removed, and the propriety of such...

^^w A Panic Among the Enemy—Bebel Loss at Drainesville. WASHINGTON, December 26.—The panic among the rebels after the Drainesville fight is described as having been terrible. Nearly all of their dead were left unburied. The Drainesville people buried one hundred and sixty-five, each in separate graves This confirms the report made by a scouting party of Gen. McCall's division. Col. Berdan has had his cheek and eye badly hurt by the bursting of a musket-Gen. McClellan is at work again, though he is not well yet. The cavalry officers are now undergoing severe examination, and many of them do not pass. The joint committee of Congress to investigate the management of the war, don't succeed very well. Gen. McClellan declines to see them at present about the Bail's Bluff disaster. The Army and Navy claims on the Treasury are so heavy that civil claims are not being paid just now.
More Fiendish Atrocities [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 1 January 1862
More Fiendish Atrocities The chivalry, and the hi g h-toned noble-blooded rebels, are at their hellish work again. A dispatch from St. Charles, Missouri, says that on Friday-ni g ht' a preconcerted movement was made by secessionists along the North Missouri Railroad, aided by rebels recently returned from Price's army, by which about one hundred miles of the road was nearl y destroyed; or at least rendered useloss. Commencing ei g ht miles south of Hudson, they burned the bridges, wood p iles, water tanks and ties, tore up the rails for miles, bent and destroyed the telegraph lines. This was continued to Warrenton, where the work of destruction ceased. For such devils as these, Lane's policy is evidently the only one.

The Kebel Ministers. Reports from Washington to the Eastern papers, state that the impression is rapidly gaining ground that the Government will deliver up Messrs.

ABOLITIONISM AGAIKST LAW AND GOVEBNMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 1 January 1862
ABOLITIONISM AGAIKST LAW AND GOVEBNMENT. In common with conservative men of all parties, we have always regarded the Abolitionists of the North as quite as dangerous enemies to the peace of the country and the perpetuity of the Union as the fire-eating Secessionists and slavery propagandists of the South. In extreme fanaticism, in violent and inflammatory appeils to the popular passions and prejudices, and in headlong zeal in the propagation of their pestilent heresies, we are by no means certain that the Abolitionists have not been even a little more extravagant than their Southern allies in the work of stirring up angry strife and destroying the Union of our fathers. Kejecting the Bible as a pro-slavery book, they have more than once, and on more than one public occasion intimated a disposition to "abolish" it; and the great expounders of Abolition doctrines, the master, spirits of this singular organization, have run into almost every species of irreligton and infidelity.

THE STJPPEE. * ' [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 1 January 1862
THE STJPPEE. * ' The Ladies' Supper at the Methodist Episcopal Church on Christmas night passed off to the delight of a large, "merrie" and most agreeable company. Old and staid citizens like ourselves, of solid gravity and strict propriety, who never indulge in a laugh or "goak" were terribly shocked at the levity of the young folks on the occasion. Indeed, we never could have forgiven it had we " not found, on our return to our half-starved little ones, that our generous young friends had provided amply for their empty stomachs and expanded mouths by filling our great coat pocket with a variety of choice edibles, "consisting, in part, as follows, to wit:"—3 turkey shins, 2 wings, 4 chicken necks, 2 pounds, more or less, of "twisted bread," as Col. DILL terms dough-nuts, 1 slice of cold pork, 7 pickles, and a multitude of delicious trifles.

THE OBJECTS OP THE WAE. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 1 January 1862
THE OBJECTS OP THE WAE. We re-produce the Crittenden Resolution, adopted by an almost unanimous vote by the House of Representatives on the 22d of July last. It sets forth clearly, and in dignified and dispassionate language, the objects of the present struggle; and as long as the war is confined to these sacred purposes, it appeals for support to every man who loves the country and the Union which has made her one of the greatest powers of the earth : Resolved, By the House of Representative of the Congress of the United States, that the present deplorable civil war has been forced upon the country by the disunionistsof the Southern States, now in revolt against the constitutional government and in arms around the Capitol; that in this national emergency Congress, banishing all feelings of mere passion and resentment, will only recollect its duty to the whole country; that this war is not waged upon our part in any spirit of oppression, nor for any purpose of conquest or subj...

LOYALTY AND DISLOYALTY. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 1 January 1862
LOYALTY AND DISLOYALTY. Who is sincerely loyal? inquires the Providence Post. The man who stands by the Constitution and the law, or the man who advocates the overthrow of the Constitution and the law, for the sake of gratifying his personal animosities ? Who are disloyal ? The men who throw every obstacle in the way of the President, so long as he continues firm in his determination to be a Constitutional President? Or, in other words, the true and faithful Democrats ar» sincerely loyal, and the disloyalists of the North are the Abolitionists. Arguments from principles and facts, sustain us in our assertion. ' — * ¦ ¦ » . '— ' SsafJohn Bull need not pretend neutrality incur war, we know him. If he wants to see how freedom's poise heats, we wo»)d refer him to 716 and 1818,
