L?ail Mines i>» the Hands of Hebels. We art sorry lo learn that the richest lead mine in Missouri, and indeed probaon the globe, is now in the hands of the insurgents ; though they did not succeed : in obtaining ariv . of the metal.

These regiments muster l,04(j men each, making an effective force of 10,460 men. The necessity of these regiments remaining in the West is proba" bly the reason the Government lias called for all the recruits now enlisted in the Eastern States, to move towards Washington. The rebels are playing a cunning game, and trying, by various diversious in the West, to weaken the strength ot the army at Washington, but the Government appears lo understand the game, and will keep all points properly strengthened.— For this reason it i.-i necessary to hurry forward the recruits....
Why They do Wot Move Farvrard. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 4 September 1861
Why They do Wot Move Farvrard. the Augusta, Ira., Chronicle and Sentinel of the 18th has the following : "It is well known now. that General Beauregard's forces at Manassas, previous to Johntson's arrival, were comparatively small, and even after Johnston came tbe combined army could not have- exceeded forty thousand effective men. Since the battle, we have good reason to believe that Beauregard and Johnston have under their command much mots than a hundred thousand men, enough for all practical purposes. It is not the want of men that has prevented an ad" vance, but the lack of means aftranspor. tation, and the lack of food, coupled with sickness. Beauregard has been almost wholly without means of transportation for his vast army, and proper food in sufficient quantity, as we have reason to believe. And men who fought the great fight of the 21st, and came out without so much as a scratch, were in no condition to do military duty for many days. With little food of suitable qua...

Important Seizure. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 4 September 1861
Important Seizure. Goods to the value of about $5,000 purchased by parties in Baltimore for Richmond dealers were intercepted on Saturday ,Aug. I7th at Annapolis Junction, and taken possession of, together with the teams and wagons by which they were being conveyed, and a number ol letters to officers in the wbel army. It is understood that the man having charge of the goods has also furnished much valuable information in reference to the manner in which communication has been kept up between Baltimore and the rebel Statex. Thus one prolific source of supply for the rebels is undoubtedly at last cut oil. WELL PUT.—In his late , great patriotic speech, Daniel S. Dickinson, of New York, stated, the case as to the ori gin ot this war so concisely and admirably that it might be take,!

V-th ot August has a leader on McDowell's report, fiwm which we quote :—McDowell makes TIO display in his report, it is but a plain detail of his movements, and it shows that he arranged i - .ti-l fought the battle as well as any ol Lincoln's generals, with theirtroops, could have done, not excepting General Scott.— fie managed it admirably in every respect, and was r.early successful. The cnlumiA of Hunter and Ileintzelman passed up the run, crossed at Sudley's Ford and attempt ted to turn our left, which was the great feature of tne plan.

CKX. IAZEAR ASi) HIS POSITION. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 4 September 1861
CKX. IAZEAR ASi) HIS POSITION. A late Dumber of the "Pittsburgh Gazette," which we do no violence to truth I in characterising as an ultra Abolition sheet, contains an attack on our Congressional Representative, Gen. LAZEAR, which, for unfairness, is rarely excelled even in its own sadly degenerate columns. Forgetting and discarding, as it has done recently, all its ancient dignity and candor, and the chaste and vigorous argumentation it was wont to employ in its better days, tho "Gazette" is becoming rapidly a mero vehicle of misrepresentation and intempcrata denunciation of the opponents of its peculiar, indeed very peculiar, doctrines and policy. So anxious is it to array the Democratic party, nolens volens, ill Pennsylvania and elsewhere, against the war and ihe Government, that it seizes upon a single pacific and wcll~nr cant suggestion of a distinguished Democrat as symptomatic of treason and sympathy with rebellion. Nor will it tolerate the slightest faultfinding with a...
