"+ • «-»-*¦¦- the Death of Willie Lincoln. l/ [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 5 March 1862
"+ • «-»-*¦¦- the Death of Willie Lincoln. l/ The deceased son of President Lincoln, says the Washington Star, was a boy of unusual intelligence, and was a favorite with all who visited the White House. Some weeks since he was taken sick with an intermittent fever, which soon assumed a typhoid character, and since that time he has been gradually sinking. Much of the time his mind has been wandering. His condition has been very critical for more than a week, and last Monday his case was considered almost hopeless. Since Wednesday he has sunk rapidly, and Thursday it was seen than he was dying, but he lingered until five o'clock in the afternoon, when his spirit was released. Drs. Stone and Hall have attended the deceased and his younger brother since their illness. He was a fine looking boy, and his intelligence and vivacity made him a favorite with old and young. He was a faithful attendant of Sabbath school, and the last day he was present there told his tutor that when he ...

Rebel* Tin* Fighting Against the Old flag. ST, Loins, Feb. 21.—Special dispatches from Cairo to the Republican and Democrat, say that on Tuesday two rebel regiments from*Clarksville, came to Donelson and gave themselves up, saying that they had been deceived and were tired fighting against the old flag. It is declared that strong objections will be raised by the Tennesseeans against the Bowling Green force offering battle at Nashville. The Provost Marshal at Clarksville sent word to General Grant to eoihe up and occupy the town at once. The officers of the gun boats now lying there represent the Union feeling as very strong.— The people of the State had been made to believe that the Union army was entirely composed of Germans and Negroes for Abolition purposes, but they now see that it is not.— They are now anxious to return to their allegiance. Prominent citizens say that a similar feeling would pervade the whole State in a week. Governor Harris has called a meeting of the ...
A Letter from the Secretary of War. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 5 March 1862
A Letter from the Secretary of War. To the Editor of the N. 1. Tribune : SIR: I cannot suffer undue merit ^to be ascribed to my official action. The glory of 6ur recent victories belongs to .the gallant officers and soldiers that fought the battles. No share of it belongs to me. Much has been said of military combinations and organizing victory. I hear such phrases with apprehension. They commenced in infidel France with the Italian campaign, and resulted in Waterloo. Who can organize victory? We owe our recent victories to the spirit of the Lord, that moved our soldiers to rush into battle, and filled the hearts of our enemies with terror and dismay.— The inspiration that conquered in battle was in the hearts of the soldiers and from on high, and wherever there is the same inspiration there will be the same results. Patriotic spirit, with resolute courage in officers and men, is a military combination that never failed. We may well rejoice at the recent victories, for they ...

"Clarksville is taken, with supplies enough for our army twenty days.— The place is now occupied by Gen. Smith's division. "Gen. Price being reinforced by McCulloch's command, made a stand at Sugar Creek Crossing, Arkansas, on the 19th, but was defeated, after a short engagement and again fled. Many prisoners were taken, and a quantity of arms, which his men threw away in their flight." Nearly all the Fort Donelson pris- oners reached here and are being rapidly forwarded to their destination. General Buckner is expected to-night. It is understood that the officers will be sent to Columbuu, Ohio. A Union scout who was in Columbus on Tuesday night reports that no preparations are being made for the evacuation of that place. Fourteen steamers, with steam up, were at the wharf, and a salute was fired, indicating the arrival of a General and reinforcements from the South. The ce...

Ool. Annisansel in Disgrace. I j i j j j J ' i S ; !! it seems tnat ool. Annisansel ot the 1st Virginia Cavalry, has turned out to be a coward, and actually disgraced himself and the Union arms at the fight at Bloomery the other day. Gen. Lander reported the fact to Washington, and the Secretary of War sent the following bulletin in reply: WASHINGTON, Feb, ID, 1862. Complaint having been made by Gen. Lander ofthe misconduct of an officer under his command, and the matter referred to the Secretary of War, the following instructions were given :— If Gen. Lander is satisfied that Col.

The former course is j recommended as the preferable one. j Cowardice in an officer, exhibited on j field of battle, should receive the , swi...

-.- ^ ^W^^^^^^^M Gen. Basil's Arm? in Baahville. There can be no doubt that Nashville is now in our possession.

The Death of Miss McLean. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 5 March 1862
The Death of Miss McLean. The shocking death of Miss Mary McLean, on the Pennsylvania Railroad, on Friday last, has already been briefly noticed by us. The Greensburg Democrat gives the following account: "From the evidence produced before the Inquest it appears that the deceased and two other girls, named Rodebaugb, was on their way to a singing school, at Ludwick, and that, when a short distance this side of the Tunnel, they heard the approach ofthe Express train bound east, and a freight train bound west. One of the Rodebaugb girls called the attention ofthe others to the fact that a train was approaching them from each direction, and remarked that they had better leave the road. Deceased replied that the freight train would pass them before the Express came up, and that then they could get on the other track in time to avoid the Express; but just as the freight was passing them at the short curve on this side ofthe Tunnel, the Express came thundering down upon them, and ...
Rejected Army Clothing. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 5 March 1862
Rejected Army Clothing. I he military board of inspectors appointed by the General-in-Chief are engaged in examining the supplies recently received at the clothing depot, at Washington, from Philadelphia and New York. The result of their first day's labor was to condemn 25.000 infantry privates' coats, which articles cost the Government $167,750. From all appearances the board will continue in session for a ^long time. It is found necessary to order the erection of a huge shed for the purpose of storing rejected clothing. In order to protect the Government from thus being swindled by wholesale, and the better to secure the health and comfort of the army, efforts are making to organize a bureau to furnish the troops with clothing, camp and garrison equippage, and to be established similar to the other bureaus of the War Department, though separate and distinct from them all.
i Gen. Scott Going to Mexico, [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 5 March 1862
i Gen. Scott Going to Mexico, Washington's birthday, says a Tribune dispatch, was chosen for the nomination to the Senate of Gen. Winfield Scott as Minister Extraordinary to Mexico, with, as is said, functions such as he exercised in the pacification of the North-eastern Boundary Question. Accompanying this nomination, the project of a treaty went into the Senate, whose principal feature was substantially the assumption of the Mexican debt due to England, France and Spain. The interest on this amounts to three millions a year. The treaty guarantees the payment of it for five years. There is no law for the appointment of an Assistant Minister to Mexico, or any other country. As Commissioner, Gen. Scott's nomination would be confirmed by the Senate, particularly if his functions should be limited to the pacification of the armed quarrel conspired against Mexico at a momffnt when we could not defend the Monroe doctrine and go to her help. Hut it is very doubtful if the Senate wil...

Wouldn't Be Left Behind. I When the Donelson prisoners were en route for Chicago, the cars stopped at one of the stations, and two of the Confederates, in charge of Captain S. G. Ward, were allowed to ' leave the cars to obtain water. By j an oversight the train departed before their return.

They had no intention to Deleft behind, and after a few mo-j ments the speed was slackened and S they climb«d aboard, puffing and | blowing from their exertions. I ¦II i
