Gov. Letcher on a Bender. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 12 February 1862

Gov. Letcher on a Bender. The Richmond Examiner , of January 23d, says a scene of indecency, drunken or sober , occurred in the House of Delegates yesterday, while the body was occupied with the question of the election of Confederate Senators, mortifying to the hundreds who witnessed it. In the midst of the debate John Letcher, Governor of Virginia, came into the Legislative chamber drunk, and sat on the steps leading to the Speaker's chair for the full space of half an hour , with a cigar in his mouth, making himself a spectacle for the whole house, and a butt for tho jokes of the gallery. The apparition occurred just as both parties seemed to be in a deadlock as to who should be Senator. The occurrence might naturally have originated in a drunken imagination that a display so dramatrically made at the nick of time mi ght suggest a compromise to both parties, and inspire a sudden enthusiasm for John X/cti;her and bis republican cigar.

National ^Oemcterj—Telefraph Earning s. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 12 February 1862

National ^Oemcterj—Telefraph Earning s. WASHINGTON, Feb. 3—So vast an army has mai .futilei in th'S District that no proper arrangements hare be"ii made for even a decent interment of those who died in our hospitals. Their bodies have been often hurried to the nearest place of sepulture, where they have been promiscuously buried. Many relatives and friends have consequently made fruitleis visits to the Army on the Potomac to recover the bodies of their deceased friends. This state of things has arrested attention in Congress through the exertions of Representative Dawes, and a committee is now charged with the duty of considering the subject of providing a National Cemetery for soldiers in this neighborhood, whore all our fellow citizens who die in the National cause may find a resting place, their graves become a matter of record, and leave no doubt about the identity of the individuals. From the general disposition manifested there seems to be no doubt that an act for the pu...

AGAlirST THE UlZOff. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 12 February 1862

AGAlirST THE UlZOff. "Occasional," the Washington city correspondent of Forney's "Press," states in a recent letter that "the desire for peaceful and prompt reparation is undoubtedly sincerely entertained in certain influential quarters."—Of the truth of "Oceasional's" declaration we have not the shadow of a doubt. Indeed, our deliberate conviction for months has been that the leading radical Abolitionists in and out of Congress, the Sumners, Lovejoys, and others of their ilk, were at heart against any reconstruction of the Union on the old basis. Their hostility to slavery is their master-passion and controlling prejudice, and they would rather terminate the War than prosecute it for any other purpose than the hopeless overthrow of Southern slavery. Their talk of "kicking out the slave States" and "letting the Union slide" had a great deal of significance long before the country was precipitated into chis struggle, and is gathering additional meaning every day, now that the w...

THE OOTJETY PIHA50ES—IMPOETA1TT 50TI0E FEOM THE TBEASUBEB. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 12 February 1862

THE OOTJETY PIHA50ES—IMPOETA1TT 50TI0E FEOM THE TBEASUBEB. The Annual Exhibit of the condition of the finances of the County, published in our columns the present month, shows a balance of uncollected taxes for the last and {devious years of $16,518 55. If this large amount were promptly realized, as it should be, the County Treasury would be relieved of its embarrassments and the County credit placed on its old-time footing. We congratulate our readers on the determination of the Auditors to have the outstanding taxes immediately collected, and future levies collected without the extraordinary and inexcusable delay which has characterised the process heretofore. It is certainly a hard case that the Commissioners should be compelled to borrow money to liquidate the public indebtedness, and that needy holders of county orders should be forced to dispose of them at a large discount, when ample means to meet not only them, but the public obligations generally are in the hands o...

OOME DOWN TO THE BIVEB, JENHY. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 12 February 1862

OOME DOWN TO THE BIVEB, JENHY. Come down to the river, Jenny, Come now, for the sun has set; There'll be nobody to see our kissing, The fishers have left their net. Wrap your lilly-white mantle around you; Haste! tor your mother is coming from town; If she sees us walking together, You know how darkly she'll frown. 0 ! how sweet to have you beside me, Here under the sycamore trees, At our feet the rippling water, Around us the June-scented breeze. Do you remember a month ago, Jenny, When first I met you here ? The crab-apple trees were in blossom, And the moon was shining clear. The blushing petals fell in showers,— Your cheeks looked redder far to me, And they stole their perfume from your lips, For I kissed them, love, to see. The fire-flies flashing their lamps, Across the shimmering stream, 1 thought were the gleams of your starry eyes; Are you sure that I did not dream ? Your mother derides me, sweetheart, And laughs because I am poor; " You would love me always as dearly...

TLATrBBM. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 12 February 1862

TLATrBBM. The committee appointed by the House to investigate the fidelity of clerks and other employees of the Government about Washington, have come to the conclusion that at least five hundred persons employed in the Departments are disloyal to the Government. The report will be severe upon Mr. Smith, Secretary of the Interior, showing that Jacob Thompson's old clerk and his own family and friends draw twothirds of the salaries in his Department.— They charge that Mr. Smith and at least one other Secretary have treated the respectful inquiries of a Congressional Committee with contempt, and balked their efforts to purge the public service of traitors. The sympathies of the country will be with the Committee, for the people know that the Government has been harrassed and ruined by spies in Washington. The report will be finished this week, and published at an early day.

»m • » ¦ A FAT OONTBAOT. "An enormous contract has been ,entered into by the Government, with a Mr. Hill, of the firm of Hughes, Fuller * Co., of Philadelphia, for furnishing one million of bushels of corn, at 77 cents per bushel ; and seven hundred and fifty thousand tons of hay at $22 50 per ton. The corn contract amounts to $776,660; aud the hay to $16,875,000—total, seventeen millions, six hundred andforty-five thousand dollars ! I"—Ohio State Journal." This is a fair specimen of the contracts made by the Government under the present profligate administration. Hay can be bought all over the State of Ohio and the West at from $8 to $12 a ton, and in Pennsylvania at less than $15. But suppose it cost $18 a ton delivered in Philadelphia, which is a very high estimate, there would be a net profit to the contractor on the item of hay of four millions, one hundred and twenty-five thousand dollars! Our farmers in this portion of the country think they are doing very well now when...

GLORIOUS AND IMPORTANT VICTORY. Fort Henry Captured by Gunboats—Generals, Colonels and Privates Made Prisoners-The M. & 0. Bailroad Seized. CAIRO, III., February 7.—Fort Henry, on the Tennessee river, surrendered yesterday at two o'clock, after a most determined resistance and fight, which lasted one hour and twenty minutes, conducted by the gunboats Cincinnati, Essex and St. Louis. The Cincinnati fired one hundred and twenty-five rounds, and received thirtyfour shots from the rebel guns. Only one man was killed. The St. Louis fired one hundred and ten shots, and received no damage. The Essex was disabled at the tenth round by a ball striking her boiler, by which thirty-two were killed and scalded to death. Capt. Porter himself was badly scalded, but not dangerously. Two rebel Generals, one Colonel, two Captains, and one hundred privates, were taken prisoners. The fort mounted seventeen guns. The land force did not reach the scene of action for two hours after the surr...

LIEUT. GOBDOS. 1/ We neglected, last week, to notice the return home of our excellent friend, JOHN A. GORDON, of Col.

HOWELL is exceedingly popular with his men, and is one of the most agreeable and estimable gentleman in the Volunteer service. The Regiment is stationed on the Eastern branch of the Potomac, five miles from Washington, and will doubtless see service before the war closes.
