recent uecisions oi tue A Heavy Newspaper Account. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 12 February 1862

recent uecisions oi tue A Heavy Newspaper Account. Among me Supreme Court at Albany, New-York, was one in favor of Mr J. Seabury against Bradford C. Watt, for seven years' subscription to the Catskill Recorder and Democrat. The decision was in favor of the publisher, and the judgment and costs , it i.s stated, amounted to between two and three hundred dollars. The New York Observer , one of the oldest religious newspapers in the country, says of this decision : '-'It is surprising that so few subscribers full y understand their responsibilities to publishers of newspapers. The law, which governed in this decision is a law of Congress, and therefore applicable in every State of the Union.— Many subscribers seem to regard the bill for a-paper the last to be settled, especially the last the law will enforce. Responsible men, even, under trifling whims, refuse to take their nqmrs from the office, rcgardless of tfio $fwment of arrears , and when half a mzeii' ipere years have b^en ...

' Hasty Marriages. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 12 February 1862

' Hasty Marriages. The N. Y. Tribune makes the following sensible remarks on the subject of hasty marriages. There is not a city, there is scarcely a township, which does not number among its inhabitants women who have married on short acquaintances, only to be abused, deserted, and left a burden and a life-long sorrow to the families in which they were born and reared , and which they most imprudently and improperly deserted to share the fortunes of relative strangers. If young ladies would realize how grossly indelicate as well as culpably reckless such marriages appear in the eyes of tho observing, they surely would forbear. A year's thorough acquaintance with the most circumstantial accounts, from disinterested and reliable witnesses, of the antecedents from childhood, are the very least guarantee which any woman who realizes what marriage is, will require of a stranger. Even then, it her parents arc not fully satisfied as well as herself, she should still hesitate. Marria...

The Allies Quarrelling, [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 12 February 1862

The Allies Quarrelling, Mexican letters, just received at Washington, from Havana , stale that the Allies are greatly dissatisfied with their prospects in Mexico and complain that Mirampn and otaers have deceived them. They expected aid from a strong party, and they find the population as one man against them. They are convinced that their present forces are entirely inadequate to the task of bringing the Mexicans to terms. The troops at Vera Cruz are suffering greatl y from sickness , five hundred men out of ei ght thousand being iu the hosp itals.

It now appears that the govern- 1 ment dispatch throwing discredit on the first reports which-reached us of the Burnside Expedition, and stating that there was only one vessel lost, was farther wrong than the "exaggerated" rejroit which it was intended to amend.

- . . . '==?= Shocking Qasaaltj from Book Oil./ On Thursday morning last, near Gorry station, on the Philadel phia and Erie Railroad, a woman named Costello, when kindling the fire in the morning, dipped a handful of shavings into a basket of crude petroleum and then set fire to them , causing such a great flame that she upset the bucket and fired the inflammable oil b y dropping the shavings into it. The husband and children were l ying in bed in the same room. Her screams attracted the attention of people outside, who dared not venture into the fire , and they called upon her to come out. She replied that she would not come without her children, and seizing one of them—the eldest aged two years—in her arms, she attempted to make her escape , but by this time was overcome by strangulation, and had to remain and be burned with the building, which was soon in ruins.— The husband somehow managed to escape, but so badly burned in his efforts to save his family that he cannot surv...

He states that he was visiting the house of a friend in Fairfax county, two days after the battle at Bull Run , for the transaction of some private business, where he was detained by a sprained ankle. He was not connected with the army, was not at the battle of Manassas, and considers himself to have been very harshly and brutally treated, both at the time of his arrest and since, considering his age and physical infirmities.

The Man who Killed Zollicoffer. Colonel Speed Smith Fry, the man who killed Zollicoffer , is now about forty-four years old, having been born in 1818, and is a man of mild , amiable disposition. He is the grandson of old Joshua Fry, of Danville, Ky., who has now been dead about twentysix years, and the son of Thomas Fry, also of Danville.

A Few More Incidents. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 12 February 1862

A Few More Incidents. The Somerset correspondent of the Cincinnati Gazette gives the following additional particulars of the late battle: The direct cause of the 10th Indiana falling back from their first position was lack of ammunition. Col. Manson, seeing five of his companions retiring, rode up to them and asked them where they were going. They replied by holding up their empty cartridge boxes. It was then that the Colonel gave the order for the regiment and section of artillery to fall back. The grandest and most effective charge of the day was made by the 9th Ohio. They loaded their muskets, but charged from the woods without firing. For a moment there was a hand to hand encounter, then the enemy fled, and it was then that the brave Germans poured in their fire. The battle, unlike the most of the war, grows larger the more that is known of it. One hundred and ninety-two dead bodies of the rebels were buried up to Tuesday night, and they were still found thick in the woods...

Xnpndaat Message from Jeff. Davis to President Lincoln-General Scott's Move- [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 12 February 1862

Xnpndaat Message from Jeff. Davis to President Lincoln-General Scott's Move- mente. NEW YORK , Feb. 5.—The Washington correspondent of the New York Herald says the flag of truce from rebeldom covered an impudent demand, such as should not be countenanced in honorable warfare.— The message is said to have been from Jeff. Davis to President Lincoln announcing that if the Federal Government permit the rebel bridge burners to be hung under the order of Gen. Halleck, that the federal prisoners, Colonels Corcoran, Lee, Wilcox and others, held as hostages for the safety of the pirates , shall be immediately hung in retaliation. A cabinet meeting was called to consider the subject, but I am requested not to announce the result. Jeff. Davis will learn it soon enough. It is probable that the news of the recent order of the War Department, directing the privateersman to be regarded as prisoners of war. had not reached rebeldom when this last message was sent from Richmond.— The sentiment...

From Banks' Command. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 12 February 1862

From Banks' Command. ¦ FREDERICK , Md., Feb. 1.—The recent report of the amount required to repair the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal is officially contradicted, as is also the reported number of sick of General Lander's command at Cumberland. The figures in both cases are pronounced to be exaggerations. A report has reached here to-day that Jackson was. night before last. at Winchester with his main body.— Another rumor says that he has been ordered to report a?t Richmond with his command. I place no reliance on the latter report. Private intellgenee from Bath states that Hon. J. Strother died there about ten days ago, and bis death is attributed to the treatment he experienced from the Confederates, who sometime previous made a descent upon his estate, destroying and carrying off property amounting to many thousand dollars, and treating him with great indignity. His last moments were solaced by many relatives, including the wife of his son, D. J. Strother, (Porte Crayon).

Gen. Soott Envoy to Mexico. PHILADELPHIA , Feb. 4.—The N. Y.

The sloop-of-war Richmond is now being fitted out for his accommodation at the Brooklyn Navy Yard.— Her destination being announced as Key West. From Key West to Vera Cruz, however, is but a brief journey. [It has been stated for some days past that the cabin of the Richmond is being fitted up in a very elegant and comfortable manner for General Scott, but the above is the first guess we have had on the destination.—CHEON.] JUST APPROPRIATION.—The War Department has ordered that, henceforward, all Union soldiers released from rebel dungeons shall, upon their arrival at Washington, receive, in addition to full pay, commutation of rations for the whole time of imprisonment.
