' FIEST VI0T0EY; AND THEN WHAT? [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 19 March 1862
' FIEST VI0T0EY; AND THEN WHAT? Let no one suppose that the victory of our arms over the South is going to reconcile the Northern Abolitionists to a' settlement of our troubles. When the fighting the South in arms is over, or even the prospect of it being over, then will come the tug of war, politically. The abolitionists, headed by SUMNER in the Senate, never intend the South shall be received back'into the Union, peaceably, amicably, honorably, as States, part and parcel of this Union, as they once were. It therefore behooves every true friend to the Union as it was, and as our army is fighting to make it, to be wary and vigilant. We have full confidence in our new Secretary of War, Mr. STANTON, in Gens. MCCLELLAN, HALLECK, BUBL, GRANT, &c., &c., but we have not the faith in Congress that we probably should have, that the position of these men will be sustained. The Union feeling South will melt as snow before an April sun, if the abolition, emancipation me...

— „ i — - ¦ .... » ^ m «¦¦ * — A New Disease. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 19 March 1862
— „ i — - ¦ .... » ^ m «¦¦ * — A New Disease. An Alabama volunteer writes from one of the rebel camps: "There's a new disease broken out here—the 'camp disease,' they call it. The first symptom is a horror of gunpowder. The patient can't abide the smell of it, but is seized with a nervous trembling of the knees, and a whiteness about the liver, and a longing inclination to advance backward. That's the way the water serves mad dogs. Then comes what our Major calls home fever; and next the sufferer's wife and nine children ai-e taken sick; after which the poor fellow takes a collapse, and then a relapse. But it's mighty hard to get a discharge, or even a furlough—awful hard. Fact is, you can't do it without working the thing very low down. "I tell you what, Bob, between you and me, I'm afraid I'm taking the disease myself; I don't like the reports we hear evory day from the coast.— Wo hear cannon booming down there by the hour, and they say the Yankees are going to play the ve...
Gov. Wise and his Dead Son. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 19 March 1862
Gov. Wise and his Dead Son. The Norfolk correspondent of the Richmond Dispatch, under date of the 15th inst., writes:—"Last night, when the steamer arrived at Currituck, Gen. Wise directed that the coffin containing the remains of his son be opened. Then, 1 learn from those who were present, a scene transpired that words cannot describe. The old hero bent over the body of his son, on whose pale face the full moon thew its light, kissed the cold brow many times, and exclaimed in an agony of emotion, "Oh, my brave boy, you have died for me —you have died for!" That powerful old hero of Eastern Virginia, as famous for the generous impulses of his soul as for his bravery and prowess, recovering now from his illness, and nerved perhance more strongly by the great loss he has sustained, will fight the enemy with an energy and a determination that will scarcely be successfully resisted by the congregated enemies of freedom and humanity."
A Case of Insanity. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 19 March 1862
A Case of Insanity. "Simon Brown was a dissenting minister of great intellectual powers. He became insane. His delusion was, that he had fallen under the sensible displeasure of God, who had caused his rational soul gradually to perish, aud left him only, in common with brutes, an animal life; that it was therefore profane in him to pray, and incongruous to be present at the prayers of others. In this opinion he was inflexible. Being once importuned to say grace at the table of a friend, he repeatedly excused himself, but the request being still repeated, and the company kept standing, he discovered evident tokens of distress, and after some irresolute gestures and hesitation, expressed with great fervor this ejaculation : 'Most merciful and Almighty God! let thy Spirit which moved upon the face of the waters when there was no light, descend upon me, that from this darkness there may rise up a man to praise thee!'" —Dr. Forbes Winslow's Obscure Diseases of the Brain and Mind. ...
Gen. McOlellan. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 19 March 1862
Gen. McOlellan. In a review of the late victories, says the N. Y. Journal of Commerce, the mind naturally reverts to the Commander-in-Chief, and the debt of gratitude which the nation owes to him for all this success. His coolness, his calm deliberation, patient waiting, working and planning, steadfastly resisting all sneers, abuse, ridicule, and his far seeing judgment are the original means to which, under God, the nation owes the brilliant success of the present time.
An Escape. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 19 March 1862
An Escape. A day or two since, just before the train on the Detroit and Milwaukie Road reached Grand Rapids, and while it was running down a grade at a high rate of speed, the fireman, a short, fat, jolly son of the Emerald Isle, went to the forward part of the engine to oil up, and, in doing so, missed his hold and pitched off the locomotive. The engineer at once whistled down the brakes, reversed his engine, and finally brought his train to a halt. The conductor rushed out, breathless, to learn the nature of the stoppage, and was informed that the fireman was killed. The train was slowly backed up to discover and secure the remains of the unfortunate man; and when nearly back to the scene of disaster, the indomitable genius was discovered running up, none the worse for the fall. His first salutation, on getting within earshot was, "Is it the ile can yez are afther?" The fireman can consider himself as one of the exempt from railroad accidents.— Detroit Free Press.

Young Old People. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 19 March 1862
Young Old People. borne look old at less than forty; others beyond- three score have the vivacity, the sprightliuess and the spring of youth. One of the most active politicians of the times is now in his seventy-fifth year, and yet goes by the name of "the ever youthful Palmerston;" and with the weight of nations on his shoulders, will find time to take a rapid ride on horseback daily, from ten to twenty miles. The heavy cares and severe labors of the Earl of Malmsbury average eleven hours a day, and yet at the age of fifty years, he is scarcely above forty in appearance. It is by no means an uncommon thing to read the .deaths of men and women of the - English nobility at eighty and ninety years, to be accounted for in part by their taking time to do things, and thereby doubling the time for doing them. The British are a dignified people, with the result of being as a nation, the most solid the most substantial, and the greatest on the globe. They are worthy of the greatness...
. The Dying Star. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 19 March 1862
. The Dying Star. Like these drooping, dying stars, our loved ones go away from our sight. The stars of hopes, our ambitions our prayers, whose light shines ever before us, leading on and up, they suddenly fade from the firmament of our hearts, and their place is empty and dark. A ' mother's steady, soft and earnest light, that gained through all our wants and Arrows ; a father's strong, quick light, that kept our feet from stumbling in the dark and treacherous ways; a sister's light, so mild, so pure, so constant and so firm, shining upon us from gentle, loving eyes, and persuading us to grace and goodness ; a brother's light, for ever sleeping in our souls, all our goings and our comings; a friend's light, true and trusty—gone out for ever? No! no ! The light has not gone out.— It is shining beyond the stars.
Encouraging to Smokers. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 19 March 1862
Encouraging to Smokers. There is said to be living in Oswego, New York, a man one hundred and eighteen years old, who has smoked for one hundred years, and consumed a thousandPpounds of weed. Moreover, as showing that he is not likely to end in smoke, he is the father of twenty-five children, all living. ¦ —«¦%» tSS'K you want to gain any man's good opinion, take particular care how you behave the first time you are in company with him. The light you appear in at first, to one who is neither inclinable to think well or ill of you, will strongly prejudice him either for or against you. ^?^- . __ t©K)ur thoughts, like the waters of the sea, when exhaled toward heaven, will lose all their bitterness and saltness, and sweeten into an amiable humanity, until they descend into gentle showers of love and kindness upon our fellow-men. 1 «• i »5F"A North Carolinian upon hearing that grass was growing in the streets of his native city became frantic with joy.

^^^^^^^^^^^mm^^m^m^ Bellows on Prominent Men. Rev. Dr. Bellows delivered a leetureb on the war, in Portland, last week, in the course of which he thus sketched some of the prominent members of the government. We quote from the report in the Portland Transcript: President Lincoln he characterized as simple, faithful, firm unwavering, unambitious, honest—not a genius—Jackson had not a more unbending will, and I am sure he was not honester—just the man to hold the helm at this time—doesn't care a snap whether he is to be the next President or not—a long-minded, as he is a long-bodied man, looking on all sides of the question—Providence never gave us a better man than honest Abe. [Applause.] Mr. Chase, the Secretary of the Treasury is Jove like in person, a man of large judgment, comprehensive mind, honest purposes—possi bly a little ambitious, as Caesar was—but incorruptible. Mr. Stanton, the Secretary of War, it would do you good to see. He looks like Chapin—a benevolent, geni...

The New Jersey volunteers entered Manassas at nine o'clock this morning, and hoisted the regimental colors. The soldiers might well have gnashed their teeth with rage, for at headquarters it has been known for over a month that Manassas" was being evacuated. An intelligent private in one of the New Jersey regiments writes : i; Eight companies, under Cupt. Taylor, were the first to enter, and after sadly hoisting the flag, deployed skirmishers and took formal possession of the remainder of the works. The stores were of all kinds and descriptions, hospital and commissary stores in large quantities. Blankets and officers' baggage were thrown together in promiscuous heaps. Every style, color and make of uniform was represented. Eighty baggage wagons, several locomotivesfour or five cars, about , No-...

The Merrimac was first seen from the ramparts of Fortress Monroe, on her way to Newport News, at about a quarter before one o'clock. The rebel gunboats followed her. They all carried the Confederate flag at the stern. The gunboats had a French flag at the masthead, and the Merrimac had a flag at her bows, which was described by some as a Commodore's blue flag, and ...

The Late Engagement With the Merrimar;. FORTRESS MONROE, March 10th.— The gunboat Whitehall took fire at 2 o'clock this morning, and was totally destroyed. Three of her guns which were all shotted, went off at intervals, and one shell burst iu the air and sent several fragments in various directions, doing no damage.— The other gun was saved by the harbor crew. The Minnesota was not afloat when so reported in my letter of Sunday , llcr crew having been sent on shore, her guns were spiked preparatory to her destruction, when, by the exertions of Capt. Ilowe, of the Spaulding, she was finally got off during the nig ht and resumed her usual position at the entrance of the lioads.
