B0BEBT PUBGrUSOFS DEATH-BED. &i\ti\ Ipmllamj, | Robert Furguson, the immediate prede-| eessor and prototype of Robert Burns, in. herited both his genius and his virtues ; from his mother. His death-bed was a , most affecting scene. [ He was stricken with insanity in his j twenty-fourth year, at which early age he ' \ had written a considerable number of very | beautiful and affecting poems. He was ,' ; carried, by his broken-hearted and widow- i ed mother, to the only asylum then estab- , . lished for the insane in Scotland. Visiti ing him a short time before his dissolu-: tion, his mother and sister found him in ; bed, quite peaceable. He requested his ! mother to gather the bedclothes round him and sit on the bed beside him ; his sister: j then took her seat on the other side. | He looked wistfully up into his mother's j face.

A War Incident. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 15 January 1862

A War Incident. Among the many instances where the bravery of our officers and men have shone conspicuous, the one related below is almost unequalled: Capt. Spencer, aid to Gen. Wool , received information from two ladies who went from Norfolk to Fortress Monroe with a flag of truce, that near midnight a six-oared boat was to leave Norfolk for Richmond , with money for the payment of the rebel soldiers. He requested permission of Gen. Wool to attempt their capture and was told not to place too much confidence in the information received. Nevertheless, permission was g iven, and selecting two good oarsmen, on whom he could rely, with their oars muffled, he started at dark , tvnd tvwaited the coming of the enemy's boat. He had previously g iven direction to his men to pull directly for the boat, and on striking to "back water" instantly. About midnight the boat, was heard approaching, and taking his station in the how, with a nine-inch shell in his hands, he gave the order to "g...

A Word t3 Young Men. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 15 January 1862

A Word t3 Young Men. "What does that young man do for a living ?" is the common inquiry, as some foppish, well-dressed individual passes by. "Nothing, nothing at all," is the frequent reply. "But what supports him in his extravagances ?" None can tell—but we, being a Yankee, have the privilege of guessing. That young man that dresses in broadcloth, carries a cane, and is so extremely polite to all his acquaintances, especially the ladies, is the son of a man in moderate circumstances, who finds it difficult to sustain himself with a moderate income. His son wishes to be a gentleman, and lives without labor.— The father in his foll y refuses to put him to a trade , or send him to work on a farm, hoping that something may turn up, by-and-by, when business will be better, for his son to obtain a good living without work.— He is now obliged to dispense with the luxuries of life—perhaps with some of its comforts for his son to keep up appearances, and get into good society, as th...

Tortures of a Wicked Conscience. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 15 January 1862

Tortures of a Wicked Conscience. A convict in Van Pieman's Land, after quarreling with one of the overseers, brutally murdered him. He immediately escaped, with a few clothes and a gun, to the wild solitude of the bush. Tbe murderer, lived for some time like a savage, occasionally making his appearance, armed to the teeth , at various huts, where he peremptorily demanded food. The convict's mind ultimatel y succumbed to the severe mental agony and physical distress to which it was exposed, and he became a dangerous lunatic. He was eventuall y perceived to be under the dominion of a terrible hallucination. He imagined that he was constantly being Eursued by the ghastly phantom of is murdered victim. He was observed to rush frantically from tree to tree, bush to bush, noose to house , from one part of the district to another , endeavoring to fly (like an animal hooted to death by ferocious bloodhounds) from the dutches of some persons constantly in his wake, and steadily trackin...

Career of a Villain. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 15 January 1862

Career of a Villain. The Skaneateles Democrat this week gives the upshot in the case of an imposter, a young Englishman by the name of Nurse , a resident of that village, who some months ago. it was announced, had inherited a handsome property by the demise of a relative in England, and that with it bad descended a title which was to fall upon him, under the style of "Sir James Burdett Nurse, Captain of the Queen's Own Guard ," &e.— The young nobleman has flourished gaily in the best society of Skaneateles for some months. He formed the acquaintance of the daughter of a citizen of English descent, courted, and married her. They made a grand wedding tour, returned to Skaneateles. took elegant apartments at the Lake House, set up an "English cab," and flourished generally in grand style. Occasionally, 'Sir James" made a flying trip to New York, to look after remittances which he claimed came through an eminent banking house, known as the firm of "Belmont & Co." O...

A Good Samaritan. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 15 January 1862

A Good Samaritan. The followtng singular occurrence was witnessed on Saturday night in the nei ghborhood of Colchester. A solitary man. in a lamentable state of drunkenness, driving himself in his market-cart, was met in the Mersea road by a well-known gallant major of the Colchester garrison. The keen eye of the officer perceiving smoke issuing from the driver's clothes, he turned his horse's head, and, clapping spurs to its sides, gave chase to the man on fire. As the pursuer neared the fugitive, the drunken man could not understand that he was to be so easily beaten, and, applying his whi p to his horse , away he flew. The major put on the steam also, biJt the pace was too great and the road too narrow to enable him to pass the smoking man, who, from the draft caused by his flight, was unaware of his be ing on fire and leaving a broad trail of smoke behind; so away they went, the wondering villagers turning out too late to stop the infuriated man.— At length they reached ...

> »S> i A Scarred Veteran Killed. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 15 January 1862

> »S> i A Scarred Veteran Killed. The Southern papers are lamenting the death of Captain Anderson, a gallant old officer, who they say had been in nearly sixty battles. He was killed at the late battle on Cheat Mountain. The Lynchburg Republican says: Capt. Anderson had the appearance of a military man, and everywhere he went would be noticed as a man of mark. Capt. Anderson was sent early to West Point, where he was a- cotemporary of President Davis and Gen. Lee, and remained there three years, when he received a bayonet wound through his ri ght wrist, which permanently disabled him. He then resigned, and studied law at Winchester under the elder Tucker, at the same time with C. J. Faulkner and H. A. Wise. He practiced law in Tennessee, and was frequently elected to the Legislature of that State. At the breaking out of the Mexican war he raised a large volunteer company, and was in every important engagement from Vera Cruz to Chapultepec; at which latter engag...

gfefcs tf tfje flag. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 15 January 1862

gfefcs tf tfje flag. Gen, McClellan's Illness. A dispatch from Washington, to the New York Tribune , dated Tuesday evening, says: Gen. McClellan is worse to-day, quite worse. The danger ofa typhoid fever is now unconcealed. His case excites a very general interest—exaggerated, perhaps, from its importance and its untimeliness, but so thorough as to provide speculatively even for his successor. Ben. Wade of Ohio, is the popular preference. Gen. McClellan was better this morning, but too much attention to business caused a slight change for worse towards evening. It is hoped, however, that notwithstanding the efforts of the brass band, which had the folly to give him to-night . theonl y serenade he had since he felt ill, he will soon be out. Gen. McClellan possesses a veryvigorous constitution, and there is reason to expect that he will weather through the disease, if he can have the mental quiet essentially necessary to his recovery, if he really has the typhoid fever. The coun...

Cotton from Port Eoyal~The Negroes Busy at Work. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 15 January 1862

Cotton from Port Eoyal~The Negroes Busy at Work. PHILADELPHIA , January 3 .—A letter from Hilton Head says that tho negroes everywhere in two districts are at work collecting, baling and rolling cotton. Thousands have been set at their task , for which thej- are paid at the rate of one dollar for every hundred pounds. They labor with alacrity under this unwonted stimulus. Various assistants and clerks have been appointed to oversee their performances, and though they need to be constantly directed and skillfull y managed, yet a good degree of work is really gotten out of them. This is proved by the fact that in less than three days over fifty thousand dollars worth of cotton was put aboard the steamboat which accompanied Col. Nobles. All this cotton had been baled by the negroes themselves, and the bags made by them. The amount of cotton taken from each plantation is carefully ascertain, ed. Each bag is marked with the former owner's initials, and an account kept, both with th...
