§thti Jtorttotj [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 22 January 1862
§thti Jtorttotj BETBIBUTION. Profane as well as sacred history is full of instances of fearful retribution attending actual or contemplated crimes. Thus we read that Pope Alexander VI. prepared a jaf of poisoned sweetmeats with which to destroy the wealthy Cardinal Corneto. He ate of it himself, and died in agony. Louis the Debonnaiee, son and successor of Charlemagne, put his nephew Bernard to death, and forced his three natural brothers to assume the clerical tonsure. This was done at the instigation of his queen. She died, and he married again. His second wife was unfaithful, and gave birth to a spurious son. His own three sons treated him as unnaturally as he had treated his three brothers; and finally the spurious child succeeded to the Empire of France; so that all of Louis' crimes to secure France to his descendants were completely frustrated, and he gained nothing but a similar unnatural treatment to that which he had shown. Anne Boleyn, maid of honor to Queen Catherin...

POEM BY 00L. BASER. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 22 January 1862
POEM BY 00L. BASER. Stlttl larttg. A melancholy interest now attaches to the following graphic tribute of a brave man to his comrades who fell in Mexico. How truly it can be said of him and those who perished with him at Ball's Bluff, "In kindred hearts their memories live, And history guards their fame !" TO THE MEMORY OF THE DEAD OF THE FOURTH ILLINOIS REGIMENT. BR COL. E. D. BAKER. Where rolls the rushing Rio Grande Here peacefully they sleep ; Far from their native Northern land, Far from their friends, who weep. No rolling drum disturbs their rest, Beneath the sandy sod—The mould lies heavy on each breast, The spirit is with God-They heard their country's call, and cam* To battle for her rights; Each bosom filled with martial flams, And kindling for the fight. Light was their measured footstep when They moved to meet the foe; Alas, that hearts so fiery then, Should soon be cold and lowi They did not die in eager strife, Upon a well fought field; Not from the red wound p...
Watch Making in Geneva. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 22 January 1862
Watch Making in Geneva. I was introduced into the watch makers' workshops by M. Viande, one of the merchants of Geneva, a man of great humanity, and also of rare amiability of disposition and character.' I could not have bad a better guide, even with regard to the moral inquiries which I wished to make-We began with the schools of pupils, where young girls learn, for a term of three years, to make every part of a watch. After this time, they select that particular part for which they have most inclanation, or in the doing of which they are most expert. The perfected pupil may be sure, on leaving the school, of obtaining immediate employment among the watch-makers. Young girls from twelve to eighteen years of age appear very healthy and well eared for. Each one has her own little table and her own window niche for her work. The manufacture of pocket-watches is, at the present time, carried to a great extent at Geneva. An immense number are required for the Chinese market. A w...
The Treatment: of Diptheria. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 22 January 1862
The Treatment: of Diptheria. The Philadelphia Ledger of yesterday has an article on Diptheria, in which some very excellent and practical advice is given relative to the treatment of the disease. After describing the symptoms of the' disease, which are generally soreaeteof the throat, followed by the awpatiance of a white or sometimes yeBOwish coating matter on the lungs Inside, our cotemporary says: It is well known that the best modi) of treating scarlet fever, measles, and even typhoid fever, is to regard them as the effects of some poisonous amt. ter inhaled through the laogi aad carried perhaps, as the oxygen gas is carried through the capillaries of that organ in the circulatory •yetem In scarlet fever and measles the beat treatment has been heretofore not to bleed or reduce the system, bat rath er to stimulate it so aa to aid i* to throw off the surface of the poison which in those cases blossoms! out «n the skin and dies there.

WASHINGTON ITHtg. * | f ks $i tirr fag. WASHINGTON , Jan. IS.—Burners continue to be circulated representing the condition of Gen. McCiellan as unfavorable, but the * truth is he continues dail y to improve, and rides out in his carriage on business. ¦ Jfra jPrejsidenfc has approved the joist resolutions explanatory of the *cl fc> increase the duties on tea ^ flop* and sugar. The Tribune's Washington correspondent says : The weather has so broken up the roads on the other side of the Potomac that even the irrepressible Sigel himself , who always reaches the destination about the the time that it is announced that he cannot possibly leave his place of departure, could scarcely move a division over them. It is mud everywhere, and deep mud too. The President has said that he will . not accept Gen. Sigel's resignation except as a last resort. He accounts him a valuable officer , and will spare no pains to retain him in the service.

WASHISOTON January 13.—The steamship Pensacola, which left here for Alexandria yesterday morning, proceeded to Indian Head, about 27 miles from Washington, where she remained until between 5 and 6 o'dtodk this morning, and then proceeded jto run the blockade, which she did in safety. Twenty-two shots were fired at iter, but none struck her. She did not return the fire. She was heavily ladened with cannon and otfeex appliances of war, and fully prepared lor hostile service.

From flain< CAIRO , III., January 11.—This morning three rebel gunboats , from Columns* , attacked o%r ^ gunboats, ' Essex and St. Louis, lying off Fort Jefferson. A brisk engagement ensued for a short time , when the rebels retreated; ottr boats pursueing until they reached the batteries at Columbus. It is believed that one of the rebel gunboats was disabled. Four of our pickets were shot last night near Bird's Point—it is supposed b y some of Longwoofl's rebel cavalry, which have been roaving about, committing depredations in that vicinity for some days. Gen. Paine has dispatched a force of cavalry in pursuit. Deserters from Columbus, who arrived this morning, report great alarm among the troops—apprehending an an attack by the Federal forces. No movement has been made by the troops here since yesterday.
The Mississippi Expedition. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 22 January 1862
The Mississippi Expedition. The expedition now fitting out at St. Louis and Cairo for descending the Missippi promises to be of the most formidable character. A correspondent, writing from St Louis, g ives an extended account of the work of preparation and description of the princip le vessels. The fleet, which is nearl y completed, is to be composed of twelve gun-boats, thirtyeight mortar boats, and twenty-eight tugs and steamers. The gun-boats and their armament are as follows.

Evacuation of Banner 0onfiimsd--->Teati and Bsrisisss JssfcisjMI , to. The Wheeling Intelligencer learns from officers who arrived on' Monday evening from Patterson's Greek, that our forces lef t Romney in considerable of a hurry, on Friday night, about six o'clock, and reached Patterson's tireek on Saturday morning about five. The order to pack up was received about two o'clock oh Friday afternoon, and the greatest excitement - and curiosity existed in the camp. Some of the companies were compelled to destroy a large portion of their tents for the want of transportation, and a considerable quantity of provisions, such as bacon, Ac., was destroyed for the same reason. Gen. Lander issued an order, which was read on dress parade before the evacuation, that any one caught setting fire to the town, or perpetrating any other outrage, would be instantly shot. The evacuation ol Kofnney, it was thought, was a piece of strategy which Jackson suspected, and avoided by going bac...
The ^ajsnaurn in Kentucky. -• [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 22 January 1862
The ^ajsnaurn in Kentucky. -• Gen. Buell , in Kentucky, is strong enough, it is said, to take the field against the rebels without waiting for co-operative movements in other quarters. The only thing which restrains him is , the country through which heis to move has been completely rolled by the rebels of all subsistence, and he is compelled to provide supplies for his army before it commences an onward movement. His force appears to be a very formidable one,. it, being composed of one hundred and one regiments of infantry, nine regiments of cavalry, • and nine detached companies, with nineteen batteries of artillery. The total force is about one hundred and fourteen thousand men, with over one hundred pieces of artillery. Seventyfive thousand of this force are pronounced fit for the field, and are brigaded. A strong reserve will be formed of the rest. The cfcvalry will prove only moderately servicable. Of the artillery, about ten batteries are likely to perform their part of...
Is the Steamship Binaldo Lost? [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 22 January 1862
Is the Steamship Binaldo Lost? Fears for her safety—A Strong Probability that Slidell and Mason have gone to Davy Jones' Locker. The safety of the British steamer Binaldo, with her cargo of rebels, is beginning to be a matter of doubt. The general impression was, when she left Provincetown ,that she would proceed by the usual route to Halifax, when Mason and Slidell would be transferred to a mail steamer for England, but the latest arrival from the latter place brings no tidings of her. The length of time which has elapsed warrants the conclusion that, it Halifax was the destined port, the Binaldo must have been lost in that terrible storm which raged with such unprecedented fury during the night of the 1st instant, and the following day. The Binaldo left Provincetown at six o'clock P. M. of the 1st inst., and only two hours afterwards the gale commenced all along that vicinity. All those who witnessed it, and sailors who were out at that time, concur in representing it as the...
