A Brilliant Little Victory. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 29 January 1862

A Brilliant Little Victory. Captain Latham, Company B, Second Virginia regiment, accompanied by seventeen of his men, fell in with a company of Guerrillas, numbering about thirty, on the Dry Pork of Cheat river , in L'andolph county, Virginia, one morning last week, and after a desperate fight of an hour's duration, completely routed them, killing six and wounding several others, and burning up their quarters and provisions. Though the numbers engaged were small, the firing was so rapid that it was distinctly heard for ei g ht miles. The parties were within thirty steps of each other when the fight commenced, and the rebels, owing to the superiority of their numbers and position , were so confident of success that they fought for a time like tigers, but were finally driven off the field.— Captain Latham's loss was six men wounded.

Householder, of Bedford county, made a report deposing the sitting member, Mr. Householder, and giving the seat to the contestant, Mr. John Cessna. The report, which was very lengthy, embraced many facts in reference to the past history of the counties of Bedford and Somerset, now forming one representative district. It referred to the constitutional guarantee of separate representation for each county, and declared that the union of those named in 1857 was unjust and unconstitutional. Bedford, at the time of its organization, contained a sufficient number of taxablas to entitle it to the usual representation, and as Mr. Cessna had 1,000 majority in that county, the Committee declare that he was duly elected. The report was accepted, and Mr. Cessna was sw...

§tM Jrofcg. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 5 February 1862

§tM Jrofcg. [The following eloquent poem, in praise of those who g ive to the poor, we hope will serve, at this inclement season, to awaken a spirit of emulation among the benevolent. There are, indeed, at this time many sufferers who need a helping hand, and whose mute appeals should not pass unregarded. The charity which begins at home is at best but another phase of selfishness, that which extends to the poorer neighbor does honor to humanity, and is worthy to be celebrated in immortal verse.] From the Baltimore PatriqJ. PJEAN. BY IBO T. HEYES. All hail! all hail ! whose praise shall I, This winter morning, sing I The praise of wealth, of heraldry, Of warrior, bard, or king f No, no !

LITTLE EDDIE-THE DBUMMER [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 5 February 1862

LITTLE EDDIE-THE DBUMMER §tM Slwellatuj;, A correspondent of the Chicago Tribune, writing from Benton Barracks, St. Louis, gives a very touching story of a drummer boy: A few days before our regiment received orders to join Gen. Lyon, on his march to Wilson's Creek, the drummer of our company was taken sick and conveyed to the hospital, and on the evening preceding the day that we were to march, a negro was arrested within the lines of the camp and brought before our Captain, who asked him "what business he had within the lines?" He replied, "I know a drummer that would like to enlist in your company, and I have eome to tell you of it." He was immediately requested to inform the drummer that if he would enlist for our short term of service, he would be allowed extra pay, and to do this, he must be upon the ground early in the morning. The negro wag then passed beyond the guard. On the following morning there appeared before the Captain's quarters, during the beating of the r...

-"¦ " ¦¦ «-^-»-s> *>.- -. ¦ ¦—¦ i - i . A Bemarkable Incident. Some time ago, a private in the Nineteenth Indiana Regiment was tried b y a court martial for deserting his post, and found guilty, the punishment for which is death. His execution was deferred for some time, and he was kept in a painful state of suspense. At last the time was fixed for his execution, and five regiments were drawn up in a line to witness it, while a file of twelve men were in advance to execute the sentence of death b y shooting him. The prisoner was led forward, blindfolded , and the usual words of preparation and command were g iven in a low , measured tone b y the officer in command. During the interval between the commands, "Take aim" and "fire," and before the last was given, a horseman rode rapidl y up the road, waving in the air a paper, which was understood by all present to be a reprieve. Covered with dust and perspiration, the officer rode hurriedl y up to the officer in com...

Last Hours of Lafayette. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 5 February 1862

Last Hours of Lafayette. No life had ever been more passionate than his; no man ever placed his ideas and political sentiments more constantl y above all other prepossessions or interests. But politics were utterl y unconnected with his death. Ill for three weeks, he approached his last hour. His children and household surrounded his bed; he ceased to apeak, and it was doubtful whether he could see. His son George observed that with uncertain gestures he sought for something in his bosom. He came to his father's assistance, and placed in his hand a medallion which he always wore suspended ronnd his neck. M. de Lafayette raised it to his lips; this was his last motion. The medallion con tained a miniature and a lock of hair of Madam de Lafayette, his wife , whose loss he had mourned for twen' ty-seven years. Thus, alread y separted from the entire world, alone with the thought and image ot the devoted companion of his life, he died. In arranging his funeral, it was a recogniz...
