The Late Samuel Oolt [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 5 February 1862

The Late Samuel Oolt Was born in Hartford, in 1814.— The model of his c elebrated pistol was made in wood, while on a voyage to Calcutta, in 1829, and in 1835 he secured his first patent. His factory was at first established at Patterson, N. J., but was not successful, and was afterward removed to Hartford. A branch manufactory is also in progress in England. Col. Colt had acquired an enormous fortune at the time of his decease, resulting wholly from the profitable manufacture of his arms . Probably few men attained to wider notoriety than the Colonel, the successful introduction of his revolving pistol having spread with his name to all parts of the globe. He was also brought promi-Btntijp into notice by the murder ushich fete brother, John G. Celt, committed in New York , about the year 1842 , and for which ho was sentenced to be hung, but anticipated his fate by committing suicide in bis cell , at the Tombs. On this occasion, his brother Samuel spared no pains or expens...

Useless-ess of Oavab y Swords. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 5 February 1862

Useless-ess of Oavab y Swords. In Household Words for December 31, 1853, in an article on "Horse Guards rampant," containin g much valuable and interesting matter, occurs the following paragraph: "There can be no doubt that heavy riding whips would be more formidable weapons in all warfare than the cavah y swords now in use. In the Sikh war , arms, heads, hands and legs of British soldiers were lopped oif by the enemy on all sides, while the English swordsmen labored "often in vain even to draw blood. ' Yet the Sikhs used chiefly our own cast-off dragoon blades, filed into new handles, and sharpened until they had a razor edge, and worn in wooden scabbards, from which they were never drawn except in action. In 6ueh scabbards they were not blunted, and they were noiseless. They made none of that incessant clanking which almost drown the trumpeter's bugle and quite the word ol command, in our own cavalry regiments, and which, unless the men wrap hay about the steel renders an ...

Extraorduuuy Suicide. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 5 February 1862

Extraorduuuy Suicide. A letter from Borne gives an account of a remarkable suicide which has taken place at ^Naples. A Mr. Kenrick, an elderl y married gentleman, appears to have formed a Uason with a Miss Gray, a young and pretty Englishwoman , with whom he has been living at Eome and at Naples. It appears that Mr. Kenrick's relatives in England, who are wealthy, paid no heed , under the circumstances , to his a pplication for remittances , and that the two, thereupon, resolved on suicide. From what subsequently transpired , it seems they must have gone directl y to the public gardens of the Villa Eeale , on the sea shore , where , the cafe being open, they took a glass of ruin or rosolio. They then climbed over the low walls of the villa , where a semi-circu cular space overlooking the 6ea, is furnished with stone seats , and descended on the beach , where Miss Gray tied her dress round her ankles, and filled it from the waist with sand, Mr. Kenrick effecting the same purp...

Wheat Does^Kot Pay in Iowa. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 5 February 1862

Wheat Does^Kot Pay in Iowa. Mr. Duane Wilson, Secretary of the Iowa Agricultural Society, estimates the yield of wheat in that State , the past year, at twelve bushels per acre. The price obtained is 40 cents per bushel, or $4 80 per acre. He thinks this involves a loss of $2 per acre , or about three millions of dollars to the whole State. He thinks the farmers of the Northwestern States cannot afford to raise wheat , except for home consumption. The great crop of the West is corn. Iowa produced last year, estimating the yield at 35 bushels per acre, (which is 10 bushels less than in I860 ,) over fifty-two million bushels. This , Mr. W. thinks , will fatten over 880,000,000 worth of beef and pork, even at the recent low prices, so that, Mr. W. says, no one need suppose that farming does not pay in Iowa. He estimates that over a million dollars' worth of Sorghum syrup and sugar was raised in that State last year. JSrThe industrious and virtuous education of children is a far b...

Slander , [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 5 February 1862

Slander , If you find a person circulating malicious reports about his neighbor, it may be set down as an inviolable rule that any such person is dishonest. Not onl y dishonest , but from his infamous disposition, dangerous to all with whom he may be acquainted.— He circulates false impressions, and sets people upon an erroneous course of judgment and conduct in respect to others , which may frequentl y be ruinous to their prosperity. It does a general injury to society, more than to the party slandered as it destroys confidence. The person who is guilty of circulating malidous reports must necceesaril y be deceitful , and therefore dishonest; he must be abandoned to every princip le of moral feeling. In ancient times, when a man was convicted of being a slanderer, he was stoned to death as a danger and a curse to the whole community. * In modern times there is even a bet ter remed y than this—it is to cease all association with such characters. Treat them like lepers, aband...

The Strength of the Army. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 5 February 1862

The Strength of the Army. it is questioned whether the actual number of federal troops in the field exceed 550,000,as the reports of the governors of States would seem to indicate this number as more correct than that ot 660,000, stated by the Secretary of War. New York , credited b y Mr. Cameron with 100 ,200 men , by the report of Governor Morgan, allowing lor discharges, deaths, and prisoners , has about89 ,000. She has 14,500 more yet incamped in the State, however. Ohio is credited b y Mr. Cameron with 81.250; Governor Dennison says she has furnished 77,-844, of which 31,669 are within her own limits. Pennsylvania is credited with 94,760 ; Governor Curtin says her number is 93 ,577, not making any allowances for discharges , deaths, &c, which may reduce the number to the nei ghborhood of 80 ,000.— Pennsylvania however , has, 16,038 yet encamped on her own soil.— Massachusetts is set down as having furnished 26 ,760 volunteers.

^W I Yield of the Venango Oil Wells, [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 5 February 1862

^W I Yield of the Venango Oil Wells, It is estimated now , upon good au thority, that the wells on Oil Creek yield 75,000 barrels of crude oil per month. The outlay connected with this monthly product, before it is consumed in the lamp—in purchasing barrels, transporting it to market, refining it, and then sending it out again all over the country—is not less than $10 per barrel,—equal to $750,0001 From this one statement, the reader can judge something of the extent of this new article of trade , and the amount of capital invested in it. The market, however , is not confined to our own country. It has found its way across the Atlantic, and England and France are becoming large purchasers, not only of the refined, but of the crude oil. , — ^.» «» —. t®~ Madame Jerome Bonaparte is still residing in Baltimore. It is said that she enjoys good health , and, though verging upon four score years, has a hand as pretty, cheeks as plump, and skin as fair as a young girl of seventeen. ...

A Mother's Prayer. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 5 February 1862

A Mother's Prayer. A mother, on the green hills of Vermont, was holding by the right hand a son, sixteen years old, mad with love of the sea. And as she stood by the garden gate, one morning, she said:—"Edward, they tell me the temptation of a seaman's life is drink. Promise me, before you quit your mother's hand, that you will not drink." "And," said she, (for he told me the story,) "I gave her the promise, and I went the globe over—Calcutta, and the Mediterranean, San Francisco, the Cape of Good Hope, the North Pole and the South. ... I saw them all in forty years, and I never saw a glass filled with sparkling liquor, that my mother's form by the garden gate, on the green hill-side of Vermont, did not rise before me; and, today, at sixty, my lips are innocent of the taste of liquor." Was not that sweet evidence of the power of a single word ?—Yet that was not half. "For," said he, "yesterday, there came into my counting-room a man of forty years, and asked me, 'Do you know...

VEEA0ITT. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 5 February 1862

VEEA0ITT. The groundwork of all manly character is veracity . That virtue lies at the foundation of everything solid. How common it is to hear parents say, "I have faith in my child so long as he speaks the truth. He may have many faults, but I know he will not deceive me. I build on that confidence." They are right. It is a lawful and just ground to build upon. And that is a beautiful confidence. Whatever errors temptation may betray a child into, so long as brave, open truth remains, there is something to depend on, there is anchor ground and substance at the centre. Men of the world feel so about one another. It is the fundamental virtue. Ordinary commerce can hardly proceed a step without a good measure of it. Truth is a commen interest. When we defend it, we defend the basis of all social order. When we vindicate it, we vindicate our own foothold. When we plead for it, it is like pleading for the air of health we breathe. When you undertake to benefit a l ying man, it is ...
