Capture of a Boat by the Eebels- Balloo Apparatus for Beaufort, &c. FORTRESS MONROE, Dec. 26.—As the steamboat Express, which runs between Old Point and Newport News, was leaving the latter place this morning, a rebel tug boat was seen off Sewall's Point. She wore a Commodore's blue pennant, which" was taken at first ior a flag of truce , but on the Express arriving within range, she fired ashot'acrossher bows, followed by several shells.

What Gen. Scott Says. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 8 January 1862

What Gen. Scott Says. Gen. Scott, according to the New York Times of Saturday, makes . no secret of the real motive of his hasty return from Europe. He desires it to be understood that he came cloth-. ed with no mission and charged with no message whatever, from any foreign prince or power ;—that he had no interview either with the Emperor Napoleon or M. Thouvenel, his Minister of Foreign Affairs; and that his reason for coming home was the apprehension of immediate hostilities between England and the Uuited States, and the fear that' if he did not embrace this opportunity of returning, he could not return at all.— The only high personage with whom General Scott had any political conversation in France was Prince Na-. poleon,—and to him he expressed his confident belief that, if foreign, nations did not interfere, the rebellion would be effectually suppressed b y midsummer, and that-before that time cotton for the supply of the iimmediate necessities of other nations would be ...

WE OOUESE AND POSITION. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 8 January 1862

WE OOUESE AND POSITION. The Editors of this paper have always cultivated friendly and amicable relations with all men, without regard to differences of political opinion or party associations. Their honest aim in private life and as public journalists has been to say and write nothing concerning their opponents or their party policy inconsistent with the truth or with the courtesy which ought to prevail and does prevail among gentlemen. — How well we have succeeded in maintaining a dignified and respectful tone towards those who differed with us in political convictions and affiliations, we leave our readera to determine. Notwithstanding our studied efforts in this direction, however, we have been repeatedly assailed by a few hitter mod illiberal opponents in a totally irresponsible and venal press, evidently with tlfe view and hope of provoking a personal controversy and thus diverting public attention! from the dangerous issues raised by Abolition politicians, and from the s...

AUD STILL AN0THEE. ' [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 8 January 1862

AUD STILL AN0THEE. ' It is our painful duty to record the death " of WM. S. RINEHART , a member of Capt. BAILEE'S Company at Washington City, and son of SIMON BINBHAHT, Jr., Esq., of this place. He died of Typhoid Fever at the Hospital in Washington on Friday evening last, January 3d. Hia remains have been forwarded to his friends, and will likely reach here to-morrow. Mr. RINEHART was a most amiable and exemplary young man, a faithful soldier, and what is better than all, a CHRISTIAN, having been for several years a zealous and con%istent member of the Methodist Episco pal Church. The death of a young man of such estimable character is always a public loss, but especially when he falls in the ranks of his country's defenders, either by the steel of the foe or the hand of disease. To the bereaved parents and friends of the deceased we tender our sincere condolences on the painful sacrifice they, in common with thousands of others, have been called to offer on the altar of thei...

THE PUBLIC DEBT. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 8 January 1862

THE PUBLIC DEBT. The enormous expenses of the war i as shown by the report of the see- j retary of the treasury (Salmon P. j Chase,) must awaken profound attention throughout the country. It j is said by the Secretary that by the 1st of July 1862, the public debt will be $517,322,802, and if the war be continued until the 1st of July 186.3, it will amount to §900,000 , 000. In the face of these figures—in the face 6*f the prostration of all kinds of business—in the face of the inability of almost one half of the people to meet their ordinary taxes—in the face of these facts, the Abolitionists in Congress would shape the legislation of the nation so as to drive every southern man into the ranks of the rebellion, and thus indefinitely prolong tho war.

You have consistently and persistently declared in favor of the Constitution and the Laws, and have given due credit to all public functionaries, without regard to party opinions, when they stood by and for the Constitution and the Laws, and for the punishment, in the way pointed out by the law, of all rebels and disunionists, whether of the North or the South. You have won much credit for yourselejes and your paper by fearlessly advocating the freedom of the press—the freedom of speech—the inviolability of the personal liberty of the citizen until taken away by due course of law. And you have again and again proven the utter futility of the tyrant's argument, the necessity of violating either the Constitution or the laws to put down...
