»?— An Editor's Dalits, [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 12 March 1862

»?— An Editor's Dalits, Mr. E. Wilford, editor of the New castle (Eng.) Chronicle , on recently retiring from that paper, enumerated, at a dinner g iven him, the following as among the duties of an editor: "He must argue with the writers of rejected contributions; mollify the indignation of suspeetiblo people whose heads some obscure or unnoticeable cap in the paper fits, and who refuse to wear it. (laughter;) keep all the hands employed, avoid either pressure or want of copy; insert something about everything that turns up, even if it be only a few lines, so that the paper may not be disgraced by an anouncement that, owing to the pressing demands upon our space, we are reluctantly compelled to postpone our important meeting at until to-morrow.— He must wade through yards of reporting, handfuls of 'flimsy,' and quires of communications from district correspondents , weeding out redundancies, and 'doctoring up' gen erally, a process for which by the way, I am sorry to say, he...

The London Times. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 12 March 1862

The London Times. THE following information about the great "Thunderer," which we find in Chambers's Journal, will interest our readers :— ': It was on the 1st of January, 1788, that the Times first appeared—nineteen years after the Morning Chronicle , sixteen after the Morning Post, four after the Morning Herald , and six before the Morning Advertiser. Nominall y, its birth was on the day here named ; but in reality it was a continuation under a new name of the Universal Register, a daily paper which had been commenced in 1785, one year after the Morning Herald. — From first to last, the Times has been chiefly the Brooertv of one f&milv. the Walters, the first Mr. Walter was more of a printer than an editor , and the Times, under him, did not take precedence of the other dail y papers. The second Mr. Walter , who assumed control in 1803, was a man of wonderful tact and energy; he took a very decided part against the Pitt ministry, and contrived that the Times should...

Millionaire Stewart. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 12 March 1862

Millionaire Stewart. The war is fast piling full the coffers of certain big operators. A New York letter says: "It is safe to affirm that no single merchant, banker, or other person, whatever calling in the world, is coining money at so rushing a rate as is Alexander T. Stewart , of this city. During at least one year of his dry goods experience he has been known to clear profits amounting to one million two hundred thousand dollars, and his usual gains have been estimated at one million per annum: but since April last, as the reasonable sequence of a lack of commercial confidence and numerous failures among merchants, Stewart's business has vastly augmented, until hissaleshave ranged at a million dollars weekly, for weeks in succession. The trade of all classes seems to set like a flood towards the Broadway marble palace, and now, men, women and children have cone to consider it impossible to pass any number of days without visiting Stewart's. It is the variest beehive in the...

The Three P'g. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 12 March 1862

The Three P'g. PROMPTITDDS, PERSEVERANCE k PAINSTAKING. At the close of the last century, a poor, awkward , uncouth boy entered London, but he was so long, lank and ungainly, that he seemed fit only to be the drudge of a printing-office; run errands, bring water, sweep the floor, and the like. Alread y had poverty and hardness of the wfcrld made him sour , unhopeful and independent. Under less discouragements, many a youth has abandoned himself to an aimless life , having no higher aim than to live but for the day, or, worse still, has plunged headlong into all the extravagances and indulgences connected with thriftlessness and crime. But the boy had vigorous health ; this imparted to him a mental vim, a moral power, which soon showed itself to his employer. He was prompt, persevering and painstaking; and with these three qualities , in spite of the fact that he was good at nothing, in everything tolerable only, he made his patient way, step by step, to the woolsack of Engla...

A Wonderful Clock. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 12 March 1862

A Wonderful Clock. The clock in the tower of the Cathedral of Strausburg, is not only a monster in size, but is the most wonderful piece of mechanism in tfee world. It is one hundred feet high, thirty feet wide, and fifteen feet deep. About twenty feet from the bottom is the dial, on each side of which is a cherub , holding a small mallet in his hand , while over the dial is a small bell ; the cherub on the left strikes the first quarter, and that on the ri ght the second quarter. Fifty feet above the dial is a colossal figure of Time, with a bell in h * left hand and a scythe in his ri ght.— A figure of a young man in front strikes the third quarter on the bell in Time's left hand, and then turns and glides with a slow step around behind Time, when out comes an old man with a mallet and places himself in front of the great reaper. As the hour of twelve comes , the old man deliberately strikes, with much power, twelve times on the bell. He then glides slowly behind Time , an...

Eeligious; Condition of the Sandwich Itlands. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 12 March 1862

Eeligious; Condition of the Sandwich Itlands. A recent number of the Friend , puj)li8bect~ at Honolulu, makes the following statement:—We are confident that the cause of Evangelical Protestantism was ever more firmly established ahiong the Hawaiians than at the present time. -Large accessions have been made during th^ past vear to the Protestant churches in Honolulu. At Waikane (in tie north part of the Island) the natives have caused to be erected a small neat wooden church edifice , costing near $1200. It has been built and paid for within two years. At Hauula, the people have justrepaired their church at an expense " of 11100. At the time of our visit there was a debt of about 8300. On the 27th ult., there was a large gathering for the purpose of paying off the debt, when J460 was contributed , and subsequentl y sufficient has been paid to amount to *500, or *200 more than the debt I " ~v —¦•i — • ¦ ¦ ¦ Hora brightens up the darkest hour.

*?¦«» .—i The Conduct of the War. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 12 March 1862

*?¦«» .—i The Conduct of the War. We extract the following graphic passage from a late speech of the eccentric yet successful American in England, George F. Train: "I have often ijead descriptions of the wholesale game hunting of some lands—the sportsman surrounds the woodland for miles aud beats steadily up to the centre—where the rattle of rifles deals death and destruction on every side. Such is now the Federal policy. "No better analogy can be found than tl at of the Bastile prisoner who was placed in ah elegant apartment , with light, and fruit and flowers.— His punishment seemed a luxury, till one day he imagined that , while the proportions of his apartment were the same, the room had lessened in size. Again he looked , and sure enough there was a change. Where is the wonderful machinery ? Pale with doubt—listening- with sriBpenae —each day he noticed the contraction of the walls. Closer and closer they came—shutting out window after window — but no hand was seen, no ...

H>l ..-The Death of General Lander. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 12 March 1862

H>l ..-The Death of General Lander. General Lander died this afternoon an Paw-Paw, Western Virginia, from the debilitating effects of his wound, received at Edward's Ferry. His body is on the way to this city, where his widow (formerly Mies Jean M. Davenport, tragedi'emie) resides. Gen. Shields succeeds Gen. Lander in command. We clip the above sad news from the morning papers. Further information about his death, and the manner in which it was announced to his wife, will be found in oar telegraphic columns. Our army can ill spare the gallant General Lander, whose impetuous courage and remarkable coolncsg in the hour of danger have long beob the theme of every tongue. He was brave as a lion, and inspired all about him with the most exalted daring. He, like Baker, may be said to be a victim of the Ball's Bluff affair. The day after that repulse, while making a reconnoiesance towards Leesburg, he received a very ugly and severe wound in the leg, which never healed. Restiv...

LETTEB FBOM SALT IIVEB. f MM ©MTOpfllftettt* HEADWATERS OF SALT RIVER, { March 4, 18G2. / COLS. JONES & JENNINGS :—It has been a considerable length of time since you have had anything from my pen. Probably you may have thought me dead; but I am happy to inform you that I am still "alive and kicking." The old welcome "Messenger" still makes its regular visits to cheer us up in this benighted land. The course the Messenger has taken, and the able manner in which it sustains the Government pleases us Douglas men well. We consider the Messenger one of the best papers that we read. Jim, I congratulate you upon the able associate that you have connected with you, and I feel confident that the Democracy of little Greene will sustain you well.— Long may you both wave! I have no thing of much importance to write to you from this territory. We have all been engaged in the prosecution of the war, in order to bring it to a i speedy termination, though I must, not forget to me...
