Gen. McClellan and Secretary Stanton-Fremont to have a Command, NEW YORK , Feb. 8, 1862.—The Washington correspondent of the New York Times says :—Several sap ient correspondents have worried themselves lately concerning a prop hesied change in the management of the army, and have asserted, among other misstatements,' that Secretary Stanton, in pursuance of a custom sanctioned by long practice, is about to assume the active management of the army, leaving to Gen. McClellan the charge, of the army of the Potomac. As much as this statement would mislead readers as to the position of General Mc-Clellan, and the power of the Secretary I will g ive , briefly, the facts of the case. A week since, the Staff of General McClellan were notified to be in readiness for a movement across the river. In consequence of the state of the roads, they have not yet been ordered over, but they were ready to go, and when they go, Gen. McClellan will turn over to the temporary charge of Mr. Stanton...

The Treasury Demand Note Bill. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 19 February 1862
The Treasury Demand Note Bill. Congress has at length taken an important step towards providing for > th * e vital demands upon the Treasury for means to prosecute the war against rebellion. In the House on Thursday the Treasury Demand Note bill, with the "legal tender" clause included , was passed by a vote of ninety-three to fifty-four, substantially in the form in which it came from the hands of the Committee.— The bill provides for the issue by the Secretary of the Treasury, of demand notes , to the amount of one hundred and fifty millions of dollars , which notes are to be received as legal tender for all purposes. The Senate has since passed a bill , providing for ten millions as a temporary expedient for raising money, until they can Jiavotimo to deliberate upon this §150, 000.000 bill before passing it. This ' may prove a prudent delay, for it is certain that making such a largo issue of treasury notes a legal tender "would not have y issed the House except unde...

Lynch's fleet completely destroyed. Elizabeth City was attacked on Sunday, and evacuated by the inhabitants. It was previously burned, whether b y our shells or by the inhabitants, is not certain. The first news of the defeat arrived at Norfolk on Sunday afternoon , and caused great excitement. The previous news was very satisfactory, stating that the Yankees had been allowed to advance for the purpose of drawing them into a trap. The rebel force on the Island was supposed to have been only a little over three thousand efficient fighting men. Gen. Wise was ill at Nag's Head, and was not present ...

Importance of the Recent Victory—The Administration and Its War Policy—Sanguine Hopes for Mexico. PHILADELPHIA , Feb. 8.—Washington specials to tho Tribune of this morning says :—The capture of Fort Henry is regarded at the War Department as the salvation of Tennessee. It compels the evacuation of Columbus iind Bowling Green.— General Beauregard was sent from the Potomac cdpi'csshj to save that place. If Commodore Foote and General Grant had not turned the rebel position in Tennessee before he (Beauregard) had got there, the six Ohio and two Indiana regiments, recentl y hurried down to the Cumberland, would have brought strength enough to the Union troops, to have whipped him back to the line. Hereafter all orders, public and private, to Bucll, Hallcck, Butler, Sherman and other Generals, commanding departments or expeditions, will be given by Secretary Stanton ; the administration of tho war has already got a policy.

f ram ©mtespntet;, HARRISBLRG, February 0, 1862. MESSRS. EDITORS-. The Legislature for some days has been wonderfully exercised about tho expulsion of Jesse D. Bright, United States Senator from the State of Indiana. It is immaterial what the opinions of Mi-. Bright have been—-whether or not he is a traitor of the deepest dye—the question is, what business the Legislature of this State lias with the business of the people of another State? All the troubles which have come upon us have been because we have forsaken the faith of our fathers, their counsels and their wisdom, and gone alter ntrange gods. Had the people of New England interfered less with the sovereign rights of the people of other States, we would still have been a happy and contented people. This same system of interference is now being transferred to this State, and our people are asked to recognize a doctrine which is at variance with the whole system of government—a doctrine which, if carried out to its legi...

Intell.^er»|ped*f> t o- a fright-H$ meeideift whieh occtrrred on the Pennsylvania Railroad, on Saturday night.— It af$>eare that a young man named Bodebaugh and a young lady of his acquaintance were on their way to singing school on Saturday night, and had reached a deep cut near Itodebaugh's Station, a short distance from Greensburg, when they heard the Express train, bound west, approach. The parties clambered up the embarkment, that the train might pass, but just as the locomotive came thundering along, the poor girl, from some cause or other, lost her footing, and, falling back on the track, was run over by the entire train, and literally cut to pieces. We did not hear her name, but learn that she resided in the vftinity. The officers of the train could not, of course, have prevented the catastrophe, and knew nothing of the presence of the girl until aftet the occurrence.—Pitt...

ENGLISH PRINCIPLES AND POLICY. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 19 February 1862
ENGLISH PRINCIPLES AND POLICY. Recent foreign advices go to confirm the apprehensions, gravely entertained for some months, of British interference in the struggle now waging by the American people for the preservation of their unity and nationality. This intelligence neither I surprises nor disappoints ua. Few nations have been more contradictory and inconsistent in principle and policy than the English people. With the most liberal Constitution of any European monarchy—with the right of suffrage, and representation in Parliament, and with few or no " usabilities in the way of the preferment R>f men of all classes and creeds, her sym-I pathies should all be enlisted on the side of human progressand popular institutions. P Her long struggle against tyranny and prerogative, - beginning long before her sturdy barons succeeded in wresting the "Magna Charta" from King John at Runnymead, continuing on through successive reigns until it culminated in the Revolution of 1688,...

AN OLD HOESE. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 19 February 1862
AN OLD HOESE. "A horse died a few days ago, on Nathaniel Brownfield's farm, near Uniontown, which was forty years old. He was purchased out of one of the "Line teams" by Mr. Brownfield in 1832, for a ten year old horse, and has been extraordinarily useful until the last two or three years when he was permitted to take times easy." tS" How Government-contractors overlooked the venerable animal above-mentioned is matter of surprise to us. Perhaps the Democratic politics of his owner kept him out of the "service." *a?"One of our old friends and subscribers writes us as follows from Peoria, Illinois :— I "GBSTLMEN :—Enclosed you find $5, j which please place to my credit.

CONSUMPTION-ITS 0UEABILITY. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 19 February 1862
CONSUMPTION-ITS 0UEABILITY. The curability of Pulmonary Consumption is no longer disputed. In its earliest stages it is by no means unmanageable, and frequently yields readily toappropriate and energetic remedial agents. It is true there is no specific against it, but there are "systems of treatment to be followed in order to conquer the pathological states which constitute the disorder." Phthisis, thus treated, is often cured, and oftener still life has been greatly prolonged, and suffering mitigated. Among the eminent physicians who have made Pulmonary affections their speciality, and who treat them with eminent success, Dr. J. H. SCHENK, of Philadelphia, ranks with the very best and ablest. Himself for many years a Consumptive, and given up to die by his physicians, his attention was directed to the powerful therepeutical agents he now employs in its treatment, and under theiLoperation he entirely and permanently recovered his health, and when we last met him was as vigorou...
