His loyalty and honesty des serves all praise.

Important from (Jen. Rosecranz—A lit* clulre Battle Soon Kxuected. The intelligence conveyed in the letter wo published yesterday from our Grafton correspondence is confirmed- by the following dispatch to the "Times," and we may expect s.)on to hear ot a victory and a deleat somewhere in the Kanawha Valley. Gen, Benham, with twenty-five hundred men, left Clarksburg last Sunday to join (Jen. Cox with his five thousand, and by this time ought to be near the enemy.— We quote : "This mornrng the Government received a telegram from General Rosecranz, embracing information that he was then, with a considerable portion of his command, at a point half-way between Bulllown und Flatwoods, on his way to attack Wise and Floyd, or etlher||of them who might be in the vicinity of Summers' vilie or Gauley's bridge.

A Dark Week lor the Kebels. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 11 September 1861

A Dark Week lor the Kebels. As the week of the Stone Bridge disaster was a dark week for the frieius ot liberty, so the present week is a dark one tor the rebels. The loss of llaiteraa Inlet, the wreck of their chief privateer, the diserj iron of their cause- by Northern journals, which formerly lent them some aid, the ^prodigious activity ofthe Federal Govern-I ment, the new animation of our armies, and the renewed energv ami spirit of ihe | loyal Stales, are dreadful signs to them. May their gloom deepen and darken with j every corning week until their infatuated i enmity has come to an end. g^y-Gen. McClellan was, on Tuesday evening, summoned to the Chain Bridge by a dispatch from General Smith, that the rebels bad appeared in force in that vicinity. An officer who left at a later hour confirms tbe statement, and adds that the rebels are erecting fortifications about three miles from the river. It is even thought that they may attempt to destroy the Chain Bridge, and then...

THE PRESIDENT JUDGESHIP. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 11 September 1861

THE PRESIDENT JUDGESHIP. We are gratified to .learn, ,trora various portions of this Judicial District, that the Democracy are singularly unanimous in their support of our popular and talented candidate for the Judgeship, JAMES LINDSEY, Esq., and his election is therefore very properly regarded as a '^foregone conclusion." This wilt be welcome news lo the hosts of Mr. LINDSEY'S friends who know him to be admirably qualified .for the position, and who know ' he will distdiarge its delicate and responsible duties with the strictest justice and impartiality. Few men of his years have had larger professional experience, or can lay claim to greater legal acumen or attainments, and none could bring to the administration of this high office a more sincere desire to do right or a higher appreciation of its difficult and im» portant functions. In supporting Mr. LINDSEY, neither his friends nor ourselves have any disposition to find fault with his distinguished competitor. We cheerful...

THE I,ATE JrfAJ. JOHN IBOWS. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 11 September 1861

THE I,ATE JrfAJ. JOHN IBOWS. We paid a visit, not long since, to the grave ot this able and excellent man, our esteemed relative and our preceptor in the printing business, whose memory we venerate in common with all who knew him intima tely and well. And if we did not gather there a new devotion to the great principles of Democratic truth and liberty, we do not know our own heart. Incorruptible in integrity either as a man or a politician, zealous and ntterly forgetful of self in his labors for the g lorious old party with which he was identified and to which he gave the best energies oi his life and mind,—perfectly fearless and independent in his course and direct in all his purposes, invariably discarding expediency where princi p le was imperilled, there is much in the example of such a man as JOHN IRONS to render it worthy of emulation. Pure, too, as a child in his private and family relations, generous but unobtrusive in his cha rities, and firm and nobly disinterested...

POLITICAL AND FIGHTING PARSONS. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 11 September 1861

POLITICAL AND FIGHTING PARSONS. There is scarcely, at this time, a town of hamlet in the country, much less city, that is not favored with the ministrations of one or more political and bellicose parsons. The mania for political and belligerent sermonizing, orig inating with the Parkers and Beechers of Ihe North, has spread over the entire South, and is now confined to no particular locality. The weightier and more practical matters of personal sin and salvation are everywhere comparatively overlooked and neglected, and the Pulp it in both sections are consecrating their best efforts, not to the work of restoring peace to a distracted and suffering country, but to the less appropriate and less godly employment of exciting and feeding sectional animosities, and stirring men up to deeds of carnage and of blood. To us, however it may appear to others, there is much to deplore and little (o commend in this strange attitude and these still stranger proceedings of the ministry of th...

Read and Remember It. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 11 September 1861

Read and Remember It. There is a great deal of sound sense in the following advice. We take it from one of the Democratic journals in the neighboring coonty of Westmoreland :— A Few KINO WORDS TO DBMOCRATS.— Keep calm in the present excited state of tbe public mind and avoid all heated arguments with unreasonable men. Give a generous support to the war and sustain the National Administration in putting down rebellion- It is your clear duty to I uphold the government under which you { | live and to throw no obstacles in the way \ ot a successful prosecution of the war. Preserve your temper and show by your acts as well as by your words that' you are a true Union man. A FEW Iiwp WORDS TO REPUBLICANS.— When you know that a Democrat openly t and squarely supports the government, i don't denounce him as a " secessionist." j Treat with respect and kindness all who ' do their duty as loyal citizens. A kind j word will go farther than a kick. Discou- j ' rage mob law at all times. Kee...

The Democracy. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 11 September 1861

The Democracy. How manly and magnanimous is the following from the New York 7Vme« (Republican,) when compared with the groveling partisan bigotry of some persons, as well as some papers, herabouts :— "It would have been easy, perhaps, for the democratic masses of the tree States to have overthrown the government and permanently dissevered the Union, by refusing to support Mr. Lincoln when his inauguration was menaced, and when, later, the supremacy of the constitution was assailed by the practical assertion of the right of secession. But the Democracy did not so read their honor or their safety. They loved their country more than party * and in Mr. Lincoln they saw, not the successful partisan candidate, but the constitutional President of the United States. And, therefore, they supported him —not grudgingly, butheartily—as earnestly and zealously, in fact, as ifhe had been their own party leader in the canvass that preceded bis election."

The Corruption of the Administration. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 11 September 1861

The Corruption of the Administration. The Chicago Tribune, the leading Republican paper of Illinois, under the caption of "Army Contract Frauds," speaks as follows: " fhe Special Committee of the House on the frauds in the army contracts, has asked and obtained the fullest extension of its power so as to include not only the contracts that have been made, but any that may be made hereafter in any department of the service connected with the war. Mr. VAN WYCK, chairman, says that the committee find that in the past two months there has been an amount of fraud in Mr. Cameron's department "unparalleled iu the history of the country." We have no doubt of it, and when their report shall be made to Congress next winter, it will cover with a cloak of comparative respectability the boldest exploits of Mr. Cameron's predecessor in the office. Mr. Floyd ought to feel deeply gratified to the Pennsylvania Secretary for the services he has rendered his reputation in this respect, unless, i...

Party Issues aud tbe Union. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 11 September 1861

Party Issues aud tbe Union. There seems, says the Carlisle Volunteer, to be a great desire at present by the Republican leaders throughout the entire country to have all party issues dropped. And in order to screen their misdeeds from a scrutinizing public, they propose to form a grand Union parly out of the disorganized hitherto disunion parly, and what they can draw off the Democratic organization, which has always been for the Union. Democrats will always insist upon the distinction between the Government and theRepublican party. A» Democrats and good citzens, it is their duty, which they will never fail to perform, to support the Government, but "they will never cease to war upon the dominant party until it is swept from power."—They can do no better now than abjure their abolition and fanaticism, and fall into the the ranks of the good old Democratic party, that has ever stood up for our country, its institution and laws, and has never changed its name. Some party must ma...
