Affairs at Eomney. A letter from Romney states that there are now some seven thousand troops at that point, including six companies of cavalry and two of artillery, all thoroughly equipped and in a most efficient state. There has been no advance yet, nor will there be until large reinforcements are received. Gen. Rosecrans was expected at Romney daily, and, on his arrival, it was thought that active operations would be resumed. Gen. Kelley is at Cumberland, and is still very low from tbe effect of his wound. He has never quite recovered since he was struck down at Philli ppi, and months may elapse before he will again be able to take the field. ¦

AUDITOR GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 15 January 1862
AUDITOR GENERAL. A Surveyor General and Auditor General o£the Commonwealth are te be nominated at the approaching Democratic State Convention. As the candidate for one of these positions will be conceded to the West, we propose to the consideration of the party and the Convention, WM. T. H. PAULEY, Esq., of this county. In the entire circle of our political acquaintance, we could not point out a more consistent and indefatigable and thoroughly indoctrinated Democrat than Mr. P AULEY, or one who has stronger claims on the party. As A public j ournalist, he labored for the cause with unflagging zeal and marked ability for nearly twenty years, and only relinquished his pen when his failing health admonished him that he must seek a less exciting and more invigorating employment. This retirement from editorial toi«jfand vexations has not, however, resulted in any abatement of interest in the politics of the country, or in the success of the National Democracy—the only organization,...
ECONOMY AND THRIFT. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 15 January 1862
ECONOMY AND THRIFT. Few public rulers in this or in any age have had a better knowledge of the sci-• ence of national economics than Frederick the Great. The system of savings he introduced and enforced in the administration of the affairs of his Empire, while it was most thorough and rigid, and extended to the most trifling items of expenditure in the royal household, was not all of economy, as he understood and taught it. In his view it consisted as much in earning as in saving, and he insisted that his people should be employed, that there should be too idlers in his dominions, and that every subject who was not disabled by disease should contribute of his labor to the material wealth of the nation. As a consequence he "yearly made his country richer," Carlyle informs us, "and this is not in money alone, (which is of very uncertain value, and sometimes has no value at all, and even less,) but in frugality, diligence, punctuality, veracity—the grand fountains from which mone...
THE SANCTITY OF THE CONSTITUTION. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 15 January 1862
THE SANCTITY OF THE CONSTITUTION. The Constitution is as sacred as the Union, and should be preserved as inviolately and completely. The attention of those, who differ with us in this view is directed to the following article on the subject from a cotemporary :— JeaT'Some of the Republican papers, claiming to be conservative, do not even yet enter into and understand the contest in which the Government is engaged.— With these, it still appears to be a war by which the Constitution is to be overthrown, if necessary, for the preservation of the Union. Without entering into the discussion of that question, it seems to us perfectly apparent that the very idea of a Union without the Constitution is absurd. What has bound and united the people of this Government together has been the perfect aud equal manner in which its provisions have been adapted to the nature of the country and the genius of the people.— The manner in which the States act in legitimate spheres, and the General G...

00BTI80AT10I. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 15 January 1862
00BTI80AT10I. The "Public Ledger" of Philadelphia, discusses this subject with so much temperate dignity, and clearness, and force in the following article, that we transfer it, entire, to our columns, embodying, as it does, our own mature convictions:— "Smarting, in many cases, under the incalculable injuries inflicted upen us ^ by this causeless and wicked rebellion, it is most natural that we should feel an eager desire to punish, as they deserve, its authors and abetters. There is the strongest motive to obtain 'indemnity for the past and security for the future,' by inflicting a chastisement which shall be memorable to all time. Two or three cities—the oirth-places and hot-beds of sedition—laid in ashes, the leaders hanged and the misguided followers driven houseless and homeless to wander forth from aland which they have endeavored to ruin, seem to be the approate and reasonable requital of a crime the greatest perhaps that history records. ^ All this is but the expressi...
An Eloquent Appeal. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 15 January 1862
An Eloquent Appeal. Hon. Caleb Gushing has written a letter, in which he discusses and fully sustains the act of Capt. Wilkes ; and at the close of his letter he makes this appeal, full of lofty thought, and eloquent expression : My voice is that of a political poscript for opinion's sake. It may avail nothing at this hour. But, if I miglit presume, at this time, to address my countrymen, I would exhort them to cease from caviling with fereign governments as to the name to be given to this potentious thing. which rises terrible before us, the awful fact of this great struggle in the heart of the United States, on the one hand to disrupt, and on the other hand to uphold the integrity of the Union—I would entreat them to ascend to the majesty of the occasion in the legal and political relations of the times, as they have nobly manifested their purposes to do in the military once ;—I would implore them to consider that civil war is not the less war, with its rights and its duties...

JONES, from 2nd Timothy, 4th aud 7th, "I have fought a good fight ; I have finished my course ; I have kept the faith." The sermon was appropriate, sympathetic, and forcible. At its close, the friends aud acquaintances took the last sad look at tbe cold and lifeless form of the loved one, ere it shoald be laid in iis "narrow house."—He was buried in Green Mount Cemetery, adjoining town. AVilliam had been, though only...
ORGillZATTOir ' OF THE LEGI8LA TUBE. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 15 January 1862
ORGillZATTOir ' OF THE LEGI8LA TUBE. The House of Representatives was organized on the 7th inst., by the election of JOHN ROWE, of Franklin county, Speaker. Mr. ROWE is a Democrat elected on a Union ticket. WM. HOPKINS, Esq., our neighbor of Washington county, was the nominee of the regular Democrats, and received quite a respectable vote. ROWE receiving 53 votes, and HOPKINS 45. The Union complains of the manner in which the election was conducted: and says it was effected by a bargain and sale in which the Republicans "made Mr. ROWE Speaker, in consideration of benefits which the former was to confer upon the members of the Republican party." In speaking of Mr. HOPKINS, he says:—"Nothing that we could say would add to the estimation in which this veteran Democrat is held by the Democracy of Pennsylvania. Forty five good and true Democratic votes were given to him for Speaker of the House—and although he was defeated, we would rather be in his position to-day than in that o...

fum &mmp\ibn\U For the Messenger. NEW FREEPORT, Jan. 8th, 1802. MESSRS. JONES & JENNINGS :—I gave you an account of the stabbing of Hennen, near our town, which you noticed in your paper a few weeks since. David Hennen expired on the ni ght of the 2nd of January, and on the afternoon of the 3rd a Postmortem examination was held by a Jury of 12 men and three Physicians, which resulted in the finding that Henene's'feft Lung was cut through and his Heart wounded, which caused his death. The Lung was mainly healed. The wound in the Pericardium was not healed. Oue of the veins of the Heart was wounded, and after inflamation set in the vein bursted, which caused his death, without any possible chance of saving him by Medical treatment.

fiiu, [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 15 January 1862
fiiu, On the 18th of Dec, 1861, after an illness of a few weeks, Mr. WM. ARHSTKONU, Sr., in the 80th year of his age. In his business habits, the deceased was a man of great energy, industry and endurance. Possessing in a high degree, those social qualities, the exercise of which tends to lessen the ills of life and to strengthen the ties that bind us to earth ; the stranger felt himself at home in his presence. A lover of hospitality, his heart and house were open for the entertainment of both stranger and acquaintance. In his domestic relations, perhaps few men excelled him, in the uniform kindness of his heart, and in the fond greetings he was accustomed to extend to kindred. On a profession of his faith in Christ, Mr. Armstrong at a somewhat advanced period of his life, became a member of New Providence Church, then under the pastoral care of Rev. George Van Emon. Some time afterward, he was elected and ordained a Ruling Elder' of the same Church, in which office he cont...
