pnf'Trt 1p Sag A DecifW Victory in Western Virginia—General Floyd Obliged to Ply with tho LOBS of Oamp Equipage, Wagons, Horses, Ammunition, &c. The long expected encounter between General Eosecrans and Generals Floyd and Wise has at last taken place, and notwithstanding the enemy was entrenched in an almost impregnable position, with regular fortifications mounted with nineteen guns, and every possible advantage on his side, our boys have been completel y victorious. Thus another proof has been offered of the superior pluck and determination of loyal Union man against Southern traitors. "Thricre is he -armed who hath his quarrel just," &c. The telegraph gives the following interesting account of the battle:—A battle took place about three o'clock on Tuesday afternoon, near Summerville. Gen.

GEfc B0SE0BANS' OFFICIAL EI POET. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 26 September 1861

GEfc B0SE0BANS' OFFICIAL EI POET. The following is Gen. Eosecrans' official report of the late battle at Gauleyriver: "Weyesterday marched seventeen and a half miles, reached the enemy's entrenched position in front of Conifix Ferry, driving his advance outposts and p ickets before us. We found him occupying a strongly entrenched position, covered by a forest too dense to admit of being seen at a distance of three hundred yards. His force was five regiments, besides the one driven in.— He had probably sixteen pieces of artillery. At three o'clock we began a strong reconnoisance, which proceeded to such length that we were about to assault the position on the flank and front, when ni ght coming on , and our troops being completely exhausted, I drew them out . of the woods and posted them in the order of battle behind ridges immediatel y in front of the enemy's position, where they rested on their arms till morning.

GEU. LEE MAKES AS AD7AU0E--HIS PE0SPE0TS NOT VEET FLATTEEWG. While • one wing of our Western Virginia army has just put Floyd, the thief, to flight, the other and the main division, stationed at Cheat Mountain Pass and' thereabouts has been advanced upon by Gen. Lee. The telegraphic account says that the rebels commenced an advance to both p ickets so late ago as Thursday, and succeeded in surrounding the federal fort situated on the summit of the mountain, cutting the telegraph wire connecting that post with Grafton, Clarksburg, &c. They continued to advance on Elk Water until within two miles of our troops , when a few shells from Loomis' battery dispersed them. The skirmishing was kept up all ni ght. They did not , however, enjoy their success long, for on Friday morning two regiments were sent to cut their way to the summit, and succeeded, the rebels fleeing in all directions. Two rebels officers while spying around the Elk Water, yesterday morning, were suprised b...

THE APPROACHING CRISIS. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 26 September 1861

THE APPROACHING CRISIS. The manner in which the military affairs of the North are now conducted, gives the people a hope, amounting almost to a certainty, that the time is at hand when this rebellion must succumb to the legal authority of the country There is every indication that a great battle is approaching and that a blow will be struck which shall dstroy the conspiracy which has attempted the overthrow of this republic. If the enemy make_ an attempt to break through our lines , which , in their desperation, they may do, they will most certainly be cut to pieces, never to rally in force again. If they want the thorough and determined preparatios which Gens. McClellan and Scott are making, and resolve to moot the advance of the army of the republic, their defeat is cqully certain. The attention of the whole world is now with the most intense interest , watching the progress of events in the Uni ted States. In a few weeks , at least, perhaps in a few days, the conflict wil...

ALL TIP WITH THE EEBELS III MISSOUBI. • [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 26 September 1861

ALL TIP WITH THE EEBELS III MISSOUBI. • It is pretty well ascertained, says the St. Louis Republican of Monday, that a large portion of the troops latel y concentrated at New Madrid, from Tennessee and other quarters , have been withdrawn. Some to Hickman Kentucky, and others to Tennessee. The only force of any stength in the Southeast is under the command of Jeff. Tompson , and he can very soon be disposed of, by the army which may move in the same direction. The truth is, many men who have engaged in this'enterprise are getting heartily sick of the business. We hear of some gentlemen who have recentl y returned from Price's army who are disgusted with the aspect of things there, and who will be well content to the Union, if they can have any assurance that they will not be molested for past offences. They are more than ever disgusted with Jackson's conduct. No one seems to know anything of his whereabouts, but it is quite certain that he is not in the State, while he is requ...

The U. S. sloop of war Jamestown has arrived from the blockade off Florida, but brings no news of importance. The appointment of Gen. Reynolds to chief command at Hatteras inlet gives entire satisfaction. At Old Point vigorous measures are being taken for fitting out an expedition against the Southern coast. Under Gun.

A Devilish Act. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 26 September 1861

A Devilish Act. There is no act which the secessionists have been guilty of so atrocious as the injury to the bridges on the Hannibal and St. Joseph Eailroad on Thursday, by which a passenger train was precijdtated into the Platte Eiver.— The persons who were thus killed and wounded were not soldiers—perhaps not all of them Unionists; but they were peaceable civilians, women, and little children , who were wantonly consigned to a sudden death, or lingei-ing agony of mutilated bodies and mangled limbs. In the history even of civil war we can remember nothing so atrocious. The Black Hole of Calcutta sinks into insignificance compared to the devilish wickedness of this act. The perpetrators not knowing whom they might destroy. They had not even revenge as an excuse for their crimes. What they did was done in mere wantonness against peaceable travelers, against those whose sex and years are respected in all civilized nations. We shudder when we contemplate the terrible enormity, t...

Ool. Geary has a Skirmish with the Rebels ~ They are Completely Routed. WASHINGTON , September 10th.— The following official dispatch was received at General McClellan's head-quarters to-day: "DARNESTOWN , Mn., Sept. 15.—This afternoon, at three o'clock, about four hundred rebels attacked the extreme ri g ht of my p ickets, about three miles above this place, opposite Prichart's Mills. The affair was a spirited one, lasting about two hours. The enemy was driven from every house and breast work they occupied. Eight or ten rebels are said to be killed and a number wounded.. Our loss is onl y one killed. Our victory is complete, and the troops behaved most admirably. Our cannon were efficientl y served, and rendered good service in the action. [Signed,] J NO. W.

The Ohance for a General Engagement. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 26 September 1861

The Ohance for a General Engagement. The disposition of the rebel troops to pick a quarrel with our forces whenever they go outside their intreuchments does not, writes the Washington correspondent, of the New York •'Post ," necessarily indicate an attack en our fortifications. The general opinion in and around the capital is that the rebels will make a desperate attack somewhere along our lines within a week, but good militay judges declare that there is nothing yet " to warrant such an opinion. Their object probably is to draw out our troops and to provoke a battle outside the range of our guns. Friday's occurrence shows how this might occur.— If Col. Stevens had been heavily reinforced, and the rebels had also been properly supported, an engagement of the first class might have ensued.— With two armies so close to each other, it will be exceedingly difficult to avoid serious skirmishing and a battle even. General McClellan , however, will very certainly avoid all risks ti...

Hsu aift &tmm. GEN. WrUGHTMA!*.—The Genera1 Wei ghtman, who was killed in Mc-Cullough's army at the Wilson's Creek battle, was Major Wei ghtman, formerly of the United States army. He was an Englishman by birth , but came to this country at an early age. He accompanied Doniphan's regiment to Santa Fe , in the Mexican war as Captain of Artillery, and on his return was appointed Paymaster in the army, with the rank of Major.— In 1845 he became involved in a. quarrel with the celebrated expresa rider F. X. Aubrey, at Santa Fo, and shot him dead. SENATOR JOHNSON .—Hon. Andrew Johnson made a speech on Saturday, in Cincinnati , in which; referring to Mr. Nelson, he said: I have to-night read with great pain and regret, the reported recantation, by a distinguished citizen of Tennessee, of the views hitherto expressed b y him.— I regret this step on the part of that distinguished citizen for two reasons. I regret it more on his own account. If it were my case, I do not hesitat...

The Rebels About to Gross the Potomac, [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 26 September 1861

The Rebels About to Gross the Potomac, From the information received b y the Government , telegraphs Col. Forney to Friday's Press , there is good reason to believe that the rebels are preparing to cut off all communication on the lower Potomac. Their batteries at Aquia Creek have been increased in number and strengthened by additional guns. They are determined not only "to hold the terminus of the railway at all hazards ," but they are also evidentl y preparing to command the fall range of the riv-[ er. and cut off intercourse. They have cannon which , by actual experiment has thrown shot into the bank on the opposite side of the Potomac , and more of these heavy pieces are to be added to those already there. With these, two objects are to be gained—the stoppage of our shi pping and the landing of an army in Maryland. A very intelligent lady of Washington , and an excellent Union woman , who has at her house , been feeding and nursing our sick soldiers , made an effort, a few...

A GENTLE HIHT. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 26 September 1861

A GENTLE HIHT. there is in this, as in most communities, a great many wiseacres and busybodies in other men's matters, who claim to have a much better understanding 6f our business and duties a__, an Editor, a Democrat and a patriot than we have ourselves. In several instances they have proffered us {gratuitously, too!) & great deal of what they regarded, no doubt, as very valuable advice. One or two have done it in a kindly and respectful manner, and have been heard with courteous attention, and due weight given what we cannot but believe were well-meant suggestions. Others, however, have put on an air of swaggering impertinence and dictation, and talked as though "wisdom would die with them." These latter have only excited our pity and contempt. Some of them would do well to cultivate the modesty becoming their years, and the politeness that is characteristic of all true gentlemen. To all such intermeddlers as these last named, we have to say, once for all, that we w...

Commencement Exercises of Waynesborg College. The Baccalaureate Addresses of President MILLER to the Graduating Classes of this Institution were delivered on Sunday last, at the College Chapel, and were listened to with profound interest, by large and intelligent audiences. The sermon to the young men was among the very best efforts of the kind we have ever heard.— Scholarly and eloquent, abounding in practical wisdom and appropriate counsels, we trust the young men for whom it was specially designed will apply its valuable hints to the economy of their lives. The Anthem with which the Sabbath evening exercises were introduced was exelated in admirable style by Mr. COWAN and Miss PITTIGBXW , and the young ladies and gentlemen assisting them.
