The Late Engagement at Blue's Gap. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 22 January 1862
The Late Engagement at Blue's Gap. Our readers have already been advised of the recent attack on a rebel camp at Blue's Gap, sixteen miles from Romney, on the Winchester road, and the utter rout of the enemy. A correspondent of the Wheeling Intelligencer, who took part in the actionf after describing the march out and the capture of the enemy's pickets, says: "We reached the camp just in time to see the enemy scattering in every direction, and running as fast as any .rebels ever ran. We succeeded in killing eight here, and taking some fifteen or twenty prisoners. The cavalry then came charging up the road, and followed the retreating secesh three miles out the Winchester road, where they succeeded in killing several and taking some prisoners. The loss on our side was nary one killed, and but one slig htly wounded. The rout of the rebels was the most complete of any that has ever been accomplished.

Very Important from Mexico. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 22 January 1862
Very Important from Mexico. The late news from Havana and Mexico is of great interest. On the 20th ult. Gen. Prim, after a most enthusiastic reception by the Havanese, left for Vera Cruz to take command of the expedition there. He was accompanied by a portion of the French contingent. Several of the English vessels had also been at Havana, but had not yet gone to Mexico. The first news from Vera Cruz had been received by a steamer which left there on the 25th. According to accounts brought down from the interior by Sir Charles Wyke, the English Minister, who arrived at Vera Cruz on the 24th, the Mexicans are making preparations to oppose the progress of the allies into the interior. Juarez had issued a temperate proclamation, calling on all parties to unite to repel the invasion, and his call had been almost universally responded to. It was believed that over a hundred thousand men would soon be in the field, with a hundred pieces of artillery. Uraga was preparing to dispute t...

* ??¦—• — The Situation in Kentucky. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 22 January 1862
* ??¦—• — The Situation in Kentucky. There has indeed been an advance of two or three brigades across Green Biver, in Kentucky, and Gen. Buell has been down to the advance camps, looking into the condition of things; but we do not yet see what was promised by movements two weeks since , any preparation for an advance in force upon the Bowling Green rebels, to drive them out of the State. The Louisville Journal reviews the field, and confesses at last that it forms "a dismal picture." It says: Every wind that blows from Southern Kentucky bears to our ears the dreadful story of outrages on the persons and property of as true a set of men as ever lived. These people are cut off frqm all intercourse with the world without. Their ears are continually greeted with false accounts of the rebel victories which never were won , while not a ray of comfort or hope is suffered to beam upon their depressed souls when our arms_are covered with success.— They* are destitute of the actual nece...

Austria to the United States. -the . President has submitted to Congress the following State paper from SlischDergr " of Austria, a Hulseman, Austrian Minister at Washington: SIR: The difference which has supervened between the Government of the United States and that of Great Britain, in consequence of the arrest of Messrs. Mason and Slidell, made by the Captain of the American manof-war, San Jacinto , on board the English Packet Trent , has not failed to fix the most serious attention of the Imperial Court. The morl importance we attach to the maintenance of friendly relations between the United States and England, the more must we regret an accident which has come to add so grave a complication to a situation alread y bristling with so many difficulties. Without having the intention to enter here upon an examination into the question of ri ght, we, nevertheless, cannot but acknowledge that, according to the notions of international law , adopted by the Governments, and whic...
Death of an Ex-Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 22 January 1862
Death of an Ex-Editor. We are called on to announce today the death of Mr. John Bausman, a well-known citizen of Washington, Pa., and for many years connected Avith the press of that county. Mr. Bausman, it appears, visited Harrisburg some days ago on business, and while there is reported to have led a somewhat reckless and convivial life. Be this as it may. it is certain that he must have drank freely, as when he arrived here on Friday his mind was suffering from. too frequent use of liquor, and it was deemed necessary to send him to the Western Pennsylvania Hospital, where he was sure to meet with that treatment which his shattered- health- and the disturbed state of: his intellect called for. He remained there in a very low state till last night, when exhausted nature could hold out no longer, and death stepping in, terminated his career. Deceased was a man of marked ability, and but for his unfortunate habits might have made his mark in society. He edited the Washington ...

WHAT AH EHGLISH ABOLITIONIST 8AT8. The Earl of Shaftsbury, who makes freat pretentions to Abolitionism and Evangelical Christianity, is reported by the Albany Evening Journal to have said : "I, in common with almost every English statesman, sincerely desire the ruptuie of the American Union. It has been the policy of England to brook no rivalry, especially in the direction of her own greatness. . We justly fear the commercial and political rivalry of the United States. With a population of 30,000,000 now they will soon, if not checked, overthrow Great Briiain. We cannot look upon such .a monstrous growth without apprehension. - — -

A Democrat Appointed in his Stead! REMOVAL OF SECRETARY CAMERON) During the past week, President LINCOLN has removed Secretary CAMERON and appointed Hon. E. D. STANTON to his place. Mr. STANTON is a native of Steubenville, Ohio, was educated at Kenyon College, and studied law and entered on. the practice of his profession in Steubenville. He settled in Pittsburgh about fourteen years ago to practice law, and from there he removed to Washington City, where he has resided several years.

"DEMOOBAOY OH ITS TEIAL." [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 22 January 1862
"DEMOOBAOY OH ITS TEIAL." This is the title of an article in the London Quarterly, an organ of the ruling classes of England. "The writer," observes the Louisville Democrat, "feels but little sorrow over the assumed failure of democratic institutions. He considers the result fixed, and undertakes to draw lessons of wisdom from the great calamity of democratic institutions. 'The great republican bubble in America has burst,' is the style, and now let us rejoice, is the sentiment. He undertakes to search out the philosophy of the failure, and finds it in the rule of the people; with aristocratic class. He evidently considers it fortunate ; for America was a standing reproof of aristocratic pretensions. Our success was a stunning argument with the liberal progressive party in England, and all over the civilized world. This imposing success, the writer admits, was too much for even aristocratic faith. The ruling classes felt the progress of democratic rule. They waited in dispair ...

THE OHAHGES IN THE OABDTET. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 22 January 1862
THE OHAHGES IN THE OABDTET. Washington has not been iu such a ferment, says a Washington telegram to the Philadelphia Inquirer, since the day after Bull Rue, as it was on Monday night and Tuesday. The crowds who were here for good or evil still stand agape at the great change which has darted across the political firmament like a meteor. The suddenness of the change, and its fitness, are fruitful sources of discussion on every corner. Mr. Lincoln has not been unmindful of the popular disaffection with the administration of the War Department during the nation's struggle for its existence. Charges have been made, evidence has been produced, and conviction forced on the reluctant mind of the Executive, that the War Office was a quick-sand that would absorb every dollar that a prostrate and writhing nation could throw into it.— The trouble has been to muster courage to make the change. But the voice of the people has at last forced a change which is for the lasting good of the ...
FBEEDOX OF SPEECH A1TD OF THE PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 22 January 1862
FBEEDOX OF SPEECH A1TD OF THE PRESS. Among the invaluable privilege guaranteed to the people by the Federal Constitution are those of FREE SPEECH and a FREE PRESS. The literal Constitutional provision on this subject is as follows :— "Congress shall make no law ABRIDGING THE FREEDOM OF SPEECH OR OF THE PRESS, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances." "The fundamental and indispensible principle of our free institutions," says the Boston Courier, "is incorporated in the above clause of one of the amendments of the Constitution. It is the germ, in fact, from which everything of the slightest value in those institutions springs. Without the unequivocal recognition of it, we could have no civil, no religious freedom. It was by means of public and private discussion—-by the unshackled expressions of' opinions through the press and in assemblies of the citizens, Und by unrestrained interchange of sentiment among the...

BLUNDERS. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 22 January 1862
BLUNDERS. We were absent from home last week, and no less than a dozen typographical errors occurred iu something over a column of editorial. Some of these blunders are stupid, and destroy the sense. It is hard to be thus victimized by the printer and proofreader, and to have what we intended for good sense and excellent English transformed into nonsense, but "sick is life," and we must learn the virtue of submission, promising our readers in future absences only homeopathic doses of editorial. Perhaps they will concur with us in the opinion that the less they get at any time the better.
