§tM iflrtnj [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 26 September 1861

§tM iflrtnj A GRAND POEM. The Atlantic Monthly ha s p u blished m a n y fine lyrics, but we do not remember any nobler burst of song since the great national crisis began than this solemn chant which we find in the forthcoming September number. It is worthy to be remembered with the stormy days through which the Republic is now passing. Once read it cannot be forgotten: "UNDER THE CLOUD AND THROUGH THE SEA." So moved they, when false Pharaoh's legion pressed, Chariots and horsemen following furiously,— Sons of old Israel, at their God's behest, Under the cloud and through the swelling sea. So passed they, fearless, where the parted wave, With cloven crest uprearing from the sand,— A solemn aisle before,—behind, a grave,— Rolled to the beckoning of Jehovah's hand. So led He them, in desert marches grand . By toils aublime, with test of long delay, On to (he borders ol that Promised Land, Wherein their heritage of glory lay. And Jordan ragad along his rocky bed, And Amorite spoa...

The following extracts are from a well written article in the Atlantic Monthly for August : HE GAINS THE SOBRIQUET OFTHK "TOUaft 'UN." lie was nearl y seventeen years of age, and , thoug h not handsome, was very intelligent and bright in appearance, so that he was able to compete successfull y for the smiles and favors of a country lass who rei gned the belle of the village. This did not suit the "mittened" ones, and they determined to draw young Douglas into a controversy which should end in a fight—he, of course, to bo the defeated party. The-ni ght chosen for the onslaught was the "singing school night ," and the time the homeward walk of Step hen from tho house of the fair object of contention. Tho crowd met him at the corner store. From jests to jibes, from taunts to blows, was then, an easy path; and in repl y to some unchivalrie remark concerning his lady-love, Doug las struck the slanderer with all his mig ht....

SHE WILL AND SHE WON'T. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 26 September 1861

SHE WILL AND SHE WON'T. Doesticks seems to be resuscitated b y marriage, thoug h too much to imitate his mother-in-law. Ho says: "One reason wh y it is so difficult to p lease a woman is that she seldom knows herself what she wants. In most cases it is hard to satisfy a woman as it would bo to content a captain who should tell you to steer his shi p and wouldn't tell you whether he wanted to go to Jersey or Japan. They wouldn't be satisfied whatever you do. "Especiall y in the matter of war. "Particularl y in the matter of the present war. Your wife, or mother, or sister, or whoever may be the woman that owns you, refuses to be content, no matter what you do.— If you don 't join a military company, she sulks, insinuates you are a coward, turns up her nose , and 'wishes she was a man .' If you do join said company, she scolds about the expense; grumbles about the loss of time, and growls whenever you go to drill—though, in spite of her growling, she always saves the choicest pa...

I like the schoolmaster, and allers sends him terbacker when I'm off on a travellin campane.— Besid es, he is a very sensible man. Such men must bo encouraged. They don't git news very often in Baldinsville, as nothing but a pl an k road r u ns in there twice a week, and that's very much out of repair. So my nabers wasn't posted up in regard to the wars.

EITECTS 01 CLIMATE ON SOLDIERS The Crimean war proved to Eng lishmen the necessity for an army s anitary Commission , which should have the largest powers and privileges for the energetic prosecution of measures by which the health of troops may bo preserved.

On a re c e nt "eccasio n, Whittier, the Quaker poe t, was traveling with a friend over a N ew Hampshi re rail r oad, and rJS>ing conversation Mr. Whittier'a friend, who is also- a member of the Society of Friends, told the poet that he was on his way to contract for a lot of oak timber, w h i ch he knew would be used in building the gunboats at Portsmouth, a n d asked him whether he thought it was exactly in consistence with the peace doctrinea, of the Quaker denomination. Without saving anything calculated to decide the question, the two arrived at their parting p lac e, when Mr. Whittier, shaking his fri e nd's ha n d, said : "Moses, if thee does furnish any of that oak timber thee spoke of , be sure that it is all sound." _____ZL__ _— ____^^^_ ____—________ ____

UNION MEETIN & AT ROOK LIOZ, VA [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 26 September 1861

UNION MEETIN & AT ROOK LIOZ, VA For the Messenger. Agreeably to previous arrangements, the citizens of Marshall co., Va., together with their Union loving neighbors of Greene co., Pa., met in the grove at Rock Lick School House, on Monday, September 9th, for the purpose of giving a public dinner to the members of Co. H, of the first Va. Reg't, commanded by Capt. J. F. Donnelly, who have returned from a three months' tour in the Mountains of Western Virginia, where they did good service in driving back the rebels. It was also expected that a Company from Greene co. Pa., who had agreed to enlist in the U. S. service, and who had been invited, would be there to partake with the Company from Va., but this proved a failure, as only about eight of the Greene county Company made their appearance, the balance of them having backed out. The meeting was organized by electing. J. H. DICKEY, of Marshall co. Va., President; Wu. FLETCHER and BENJAMIN ANDERSON, of Greene eo. Pa., V...
