A Woman Frown to Daath. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 29 January 1862
A Woman Frown to Daath. %tk% jrftjre fag* A shocking case of death from intemperance and exposure occurred on Monday evening, at Dickson's coal works, in the vicinity of Ireland station, on the Allegheny Valley Railroad, about nine miles from the city. The victim was Mrs. Jane Galbreath, wife of a coal digger employed at the above named works.— It appears that Mr. Galbreath had been at work as usual, on Monday, and returning in the evening for pupper, missed his wife. She had "made up" some bread during the afternoon, which had been left unbaked, and a portion of meat was found upon the fire burnt to a crisp. Mr. Galbreath, suspecting that something was wrong, started out among the neighbors, to search for his wife, but failed to obtain any tidings of her. . When he returned to the house, he was attracted by the singular ac tions of a little dog, which kept running out towards a rabbit pen in the garden, as if to draw his attention there. Following the little animal , Mr. ...
Gen. MoCQellaa Before the War Committee [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 29 January 1862
Gen. MoCQellaa Before the War Committee It was rumored at Washington that Gen. MCCLELLAN had refused to go before the War Committee of Congress. As he was sick at the time, the rumor probably arose from his inability to appear before ^ the Committee. We thought it impossible that Gen. M CCLELLAN, who properly, requires the strictest subordination to nis own authority, from those un derhis command, should refuse to submit to superior civil authority himself. The rumor was erroneous Gen. MCCLELLAN did appear before the joint Committee last Wednesday, probably the first day he was able. A dispatch to the New York Times says that for three hours they listened to a patient and candid account of his operations in the responsible office to which he was so suddenl y, and without his knowledge or procurement, summoned by the President and by the nation's voice. The difficulties of his position , the embarrassments of questions arising ; the amount of labor done; the ferocity and streng...

Dupont, in a jjrivate letter dated Dec. 30, expreases entire approval of Gen. Sher man's management, and censures, on the other hand, the ill-judged outcry raised against the latter. It is the op inion of Capt. Dupont that Charleston and Savannah must fall. But he doetv not think that the army sent Out under Sherman, and intended for another propose—whieh baa bees ftelly accomplished—was sufficient to enable him, with prudence, to detach a sufficient force for, the capture of, eitheroity. He speaks with great Bttt-i isfaction of what has been accomp lished so far , arid with confidence and resolution as to the future.

.Generals Meagher and Shields. General Thomas Francis Meagher went across the Potomac on Saturday, and p itched his tent in the encampment of the Irish Brigade, of which he is the commander. Colonel Nugent of the Sixty-ninth, has been acting Brigadier General since the brigade joined General Sumner's Division.

General Shields is to be the Major General. In accordance with an invitation extended by General Meagher and other officers in the brigade, General Shields will visit the camp some time next week.

Effect of the Federal Successes. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 29 January 1862
Effect of the Federal Successes. A letter received in New York, from a gentleman well known to us , says the Evening Post, relates that "a respectable person made prisoner by one of our boats in Edisto river says we could form no idea what a stunning blow the capture of Port Royal had been to the people of South Carolina and Georgia. He says too, that almost equal to that in its appalling effect, was the great fire in Charleston. He adds that a party is on foot in that region in favor of settling the questions at issue by commissioners—and that both Davis and Stephens are in favor of it, but that the Rhett party had frowned it down."
Very Important from Mexico—She Will Make Desperate Fig-ht. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 29 January 1862
Very Important from Mexico—She Will Make Desperate Fig-ht. PHILADELPHIA , January, 18.— Specials of to-day's Tribune contain very important intelligence from Mexico. The new cabinet has been formed by Juarez. Doblado issued a proclamation soon after his appointment, closing the port of Vera Cruz; increasing the regular army ' to fifty-two thousand, and calling on the States for as many volunteers as they could furnish. It is believed that one hundred and fifty thousand Mexican troops will soon be in the field. Before the Congress adjourned President Juarez was invested with full dictorial powers. The Government has imposed two direct taxes, to which the people, with cheerfulness, submit. A general amnesty has been granted to the church party. It is thought that the first battle will take place at Tampico, and that it will be a desperate one.

. m • m . Gen. Patterson not yet Clear. The Committee on the conduct of the War had a long session on Saturday. They resumed the evidence in Gen. Patterson's case, and examined two of his aids, Cols . Eiddle and Thomas, upon the point of Johnston's escape. It is said that none of the evidence adduced by Patterson .will vindicate his fame or relieve him from the responsibility of the disaster at Bull Run. The committee will make no comments on the testimony of witnesses in that affair, but will let the facts as presented by Patterson go forth to the world.
Gen. McOlellan and Congress. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 29 January 1862
Gen. McOlellan and Congress. According to the Herald, the committee of Congress now admit that , till illuminated by Gen. McClellan , they were beginning at the wrong end, and' putting the head where the tail should oe. But, argues the editor, the cry was Manassas! Manassas!! Manassas!!! If Manassas were wrested from the enemy, the success mig ht be of very small advantage.— He could fall back and rally upon his r^sprves. The result would not be decisive). Bnt from a common sense view of tiie matter, and from observing all the movements in progress which are open to the public" view, it appears evident to us that, instead of the first battle being fought at Manassas, the last battle will be fought there, and then the country •will reap the fruits of the victory And he well satisfied of ihej^rofbund military jrvisdpnj wteck f lfmjmti £fcay campaign, ¦ .;..; £, " u .

A Glorious Victory in Kentucky—The Total Defeat and Death of Zollicoffer. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 29 January 1862
A Glorious Victory in Kentucky—The Total Defeat and Death of Zollicoffer. Our readers areaware that the rebel General Zollicoffer , with a force estimated at about ten thousand men, has, for some weeks, been stron gly Eosted on the north bank of the Cumerland river, a few miles below Somerset, in Pulaski county, Kentucky. The Federal Gen. Schoepff, with a force of about seven thousand men, has been at Somerset, holding the rebels in check. General Thomas until about a week since, has been at Columbia, in Adair county. He moved forward by the Jamestown road, with the apparent intention of getting into the rear of Zollicoffer, cutting off his retreat and bagging his force. Zollicoffer, ascertaining the nature of the movement, and seeing that he must abandon his position or be currounded, boldly determined to attack his enemies in detail, and suddenly marched to meet Thomas. It happened that strong reinforcements had been dispatched to the aid of General Thomas, and that they o...
The Victory at Somerset—Probable Capture of the Bebel Army. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 29 January 1862
The Victory at Somerset—Probable Capture of the Bebel Army. CINCINNATI , Jan. 22.—The Louisville Journal , of yesterday, says that twelve cannon were captured at Somerset, and thinks the rebel army cannot escape. Thero are from seven to ten Federal Regiments which were thrown across Cumberland river some days since to intercept their retreat, and unless the rebels divide into squads and find their way into Tennessee by unfrequented paths, they must all be entrapped. A letter to the Commercial dated feomerset the 19th, says that Zollicoffer is said to have been killed by Col. Fry, of the 2nd Kentucky Regiment. We have taken many prisoners. The loyal Tennesseeans, fought like tigers, and have suffered much. The 9th Ohio is badly cut up. The Tennesseeans took one battery at the point of the bayonet.

, St -» «>¦«>¦ » . ..... ¦ ¦¦¦ ¦ ¦¦ i Another Destructive Freshet in our Hirers —Great loss of Property. The late rains have had the effect of swelling our rivers to an unusual stage, producing a general overflow of the low lands along their banks and causing the destruction of a large amount of property. The Monongahela, at eleven o'clock this forenoon, had twenty-eight feet water in thejfchannel, and was rising slowly. The damage along this stream has not been as extensive as on the occasion of the last freshet, and a few thousand dollars will probably covei the loss. Two new steam boats were floated off the stocks, one at California and the other at Brownsville. Both passed the city this forenoon, apparently nothing the worsefortheir impromptu launch. They were owned respectivel y by Mr. Willoughby and J. Harris, and as a steam tug was sent in pursuit of them, they will no doubt be recovered without injury. Several coal flats were swept away and some few sunk,...

»?«— Gen. MoOlellan'i Health. Notwithstanding the dripping, pane-, trating rain which dropped Monday with the same unwearied pertinacity which has marked the whole of the last week, Gen. McClellan ventured oat of doors to attend the official reception of the War Department. He was, of course, the observed of the bystanders, who, in their earnest looks, showed their intense sympathy for his recent illness, and satisfaction for his recovery.

Cheering Hews from Washington—A Forward Movement of our Army this Week. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 29 January 1862
Cheering Hews from Washington—A Forward Movement of our Army this Week. PHILADELPHIA January 20.—New York correspondent of the Philadelp hia Ledger, this morning, says that an eminent Bankei at Washington, on business with the Secretary of the Treasury, writes under- date of yesterday, that an event will take p lace at Washington, next (this week,) which will wake up the country. As Gen. McClellan's health is sufficiently recovered to enable him to mount the saddle again, you may guess what that event will be. The period of masterly inactivity on the line of the Potomac is at the end, and if all the signs do not terribly deceive, the rebel stronghold at Manassas, and the rebel blockade of the Potomac by this day week, will be among the things that were. I give you this for what it is worth,, and if it is worth as much as the writer's name is on blank paper, it has the hig hest sort of value. He has lately been in close communication with the Secretary of the Treasury, the Pres...

McClellan was before the Committee on the Conduct of the War, he stated positively that he was in favor, and always had been in favor of active operations, and speedy suppression of the rebellion, and was doing his utmost to bring about such a result. The report that the rebels have abandoned Manassas is a great humbug. Gen.

More Military Appointments. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 29 January 1862
More Military Appointments. The Senate Military Committee, on Monday, passed upon a large number of military appointments. The following Brigadiers were sent up for confirmation: Gens. Shields, Meagher, Keys, Richardson, Stanley, Palmer, Van Vliet, French, Brooks and Steele. Among those who are hung up are Gens. McKinstry, Gorman, Todd, Sykes, Stevens, Strong, Sickles and Ward. These latter are not reported against, but laid aside for inquiry. Cassius M. Clay has been confirmed as Major General of volunteers, and Abner Doubleday as Brigadier General. Clay is a good and brave man, but what he has done in the field that he should be set over other men quite as brave, and who are, at the same time, skilled and experienced military men, we cannot nerceive.

TEE LATE CHANGE IN THE CABINET. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 29 January 1862
TEE LATE CHANGE IN THE CABINET. "Mr. CAMERON, it is clear," says our Republican cotemporary of the Pittsburgh Gazette, "was invited to retire from the War Department, because his views on the policy erf the Government, in regard to the slavery question as it now exists in relation to the rebellion, were not in accordance with these of tbe President." So say all the Jtewa.bl.iean prints and politicians, and ao say w«. Such being the case, our Confidence in the patriotism, and nerve, and independence of President LINCOLN is greatly increased, and we cheerfully accord him the praise he deserves for hie fearless discharge of what was, palpably, a high pablic duty. It is evident that Mr. LINCOLN is determined to resist the suicidal schemes of the anti-slavery zealots who have attempted to give direction to his administration and to mould the policy of tile war. The sentiment of the conservative men of all parties at the North and in the loyal ^laveholding State's was unmistakably a...
THE TONNAGE TAX. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 29 January 1862
THE TONNAGE TAX. We invite the reader's attention to the communication of "Citizen" in another column in regard to the proposed repeal of the Tonnage Law passed by the last Legislature. The tax imposed by the State on the Tonnage of the Pennsylvania Boad was most just and righteous, and was intended as some return to tbe State for the special and distinguished privileges accorded to that highly favored and pampered corporation. To repeal it, and annually subtract hundreds of thousands of dollars from the public treasury was an outrage on a tax-ridden people than which none could be more flagrant or unjustifiable. It is to be hoped that the present Legislature will right the wrong done by the last, and administer a deserved rebuke to the reckless Republican jobbers and ¦ peculators who sold themselves, "body and breeches," and bartered away the public interests to a monster Railroad monopoly. Shame on the miserable recreants and mercenaries!
