Colonel John A. Washington, [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 2 October 1861
Colonel John A. Washington, Who was killed at ulaeat .Mountain , had five largo landed estates in Virginia,—three in Jefferson county near Charlestown, one in Fauquier county of one thousand acres, and one thousand and seventy-five acres left at Mt. Vernon, after the ladies had selected their two hundred. The New York papers have confounded Colonel John A. Washington with Colonel Lewis Washington, of Belleviow, near Harper's Ferry. It was the latter upon whom John Brown made his attack. A Washington friend of the former, receiving much good treatment from Colonel John A. Washington, denies that he was at heart a secessionist, and desires to say thus much in justice to his five little children, now entirel y orphans, their mother having fell dead, about a year since, in the excitement of welcoming her husband home, on his arrival at Faquier from Mount Vernon. The war sword of General Washington is in the United States Patent Office, with his regimentals. His dress sword is at F...

Cool Reception of Oom. Barron. ±lis omcersj descended to tnedeck of the flag ship Minnesota, where Commodoro Stringham was stationed on the quartor deck to receive him. Gen. Butler presented Barron to tho gallant old Commodore, saying, "Commodore Barron! Commodore Stringham ." The later raised himself up to his full hei ght, looking the traitor straig ht in the eye, and barel y inclining his head, replied, ••! have seen Mr. Barron before." Barron , who has always prided himself on the hauteur tnonde, fairly winced under the whole volume of sarcasm contained in that look and sentence. When the first salutations were made between the United States officers and Commodore Barron , he asked "how many were killed on tho fleet?" The answer was (: None ."—"How many were wounded ?"—"None," was the reply;. _ "Why," he exclaimed, "you astonish me. I thou g ht that to capture these forts it wouM cost a thousand lives, and it would be cheap at that." '''i_ _,M* iBteprw iWk^WsE.688 tf Russi...

LOCISVILLE, September 24.—The following Proclamation has just beeil received: To Tire PEOPLE OF KENTUCKY—The Legislature of Kentuck y have been faithless to the will of the people.— They have endeavored to make your gallant State a fortress in which, under the guise of neutrality, the armed forces of the United States mig ht secretl y prepare to subjugate alike the people of Kentuck y and the Southern States. It was not until after months of covert and open violation of your neutrality, with large encampments of Federal troops on your territory, and a recent official declaration of the President of the United States not to regard your neutral position, coupled with a well prepared scheme to seize an additional point in your territory, which was of vital importance to the safety and defence of Tennesse, that the troops of the Confederacy, on the invitation of the people of Kentucky, occupied a defensive post in jour State....

On Tuesday evening t v «>' e9C_pajd soldiers from the Confederate Anny ai-rived in Washington, and after reporting to ^reneroi Porter, were incarcerftted at the>centi_lga«rdhouse, asWisonertt, to be used for giving informat'oa to the Govefnment in future.

Was at the battle of Manassas Junction, and was in Genera! Johnson's division. I escaped from Stewart's regiment on Tuesday morning. Our brigade was commanded by Gen.

I was impressed into the army at Harper's Ferry, and am a native of Baltimore. There is a regiment between Fairfax Station and Sprintrfiel...
Getting Alarmed at Their Situation. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 2 October 1861
Getting Alarmed at Their Situation. The people of New Orleans are evidently becoming alarmed at the naval movement, of the Government, The editor of the Picayune says he has just been informed by a geatleman who had just arrived from New York and Philadelphia that the most unprecedented __er___e are being made in all the ship yards and docks of those two cities for the fitting __t of the largest naval expedition ev*r known in this country. Every carpenter WJM> can be obtained is employed, and merchant ships are being altered into war ships, and all the foundries are hard at work making and altering engines for steam propellers of the largest size, a. well as for small gun boats. R was openly talked of among the mechanics that this immense fleet of war ships was destined for New ,OrleanB. It would seem that the present design of the enemy was to affect a r__e , by alluring us on to take Washington City, thus drawing our main forces into Virginia, and leaving our Southe...
Panic in the Seoeded States. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 2 October 1861
Panic in the Seoeded States. The Philadelphia "Press" says : "Late information, upon which we can rely, authorizes us to state that a gene_vl panic has taken place in the seceded States since Monday last. The preparations of the Federal Government to seize certain important posts on the Southern coast, and the unprotracted character of that coast, are among the chief reasons for this rapidly increased feeling. Davis and his confederated traitors having failed in their absurd demonstration upon Washington, (which w_as, in fact, never real,) are uow loosing the confidence of the troops gathered between Richmond and the Federal Capital, and are daily attacked with the utmost bitterness by the people that have seduced into their conspiracy.— It is a fact which events will soon establish, that thousands now in the rebel army are anxious to be taken prisoners by the American army, in order that they may be rescued from the fearful horrors under which they are suffering. Nothing pr...

How Wise Escaped, [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 2 October 1861
How Wise Escaped, When Floyd left his entrenched Camp at Carnifex's Ferry, he fled across the country till he reached the main pike leading from Gauley Bridge to Lewisburg. He turned down this road, went a short distance toward Gauley Bridge, and there commenced new entrenchments. Meantime Wise, who had only been seven miles from Carnifex's Ferry on the day of the attack, no sooner heard of Floyd's retreat, than he got on to Lewisburg pike and started out of danger. Cox, who had been ordered to "raise the shout, and start as speedily as possible at Floyd," hurried up from Gauley, and reached the point on the Lewisburg pike where Floyd had been entrenching, just two hours after the Great Thief, warned of Cox's advance, had deserted his works, and fled after Wise.

- -gjgsl-m. Murdera. a "Peace Meeting." O* Saturday evening a peace B__tting was held at Port Deposit, H_ ., at the hotel of Robert Smith.— -CrfBe fifty secessionists were present, when six soldiers entered the barroom, having with them a small American flag. After taking a drink at the bar , they proposed and gave three cheers each for the flag and for General Scott, when the "peace" worshippers rushed out of another part of the house where there meeting was being held , and seized the flag and trampled it under their feet, and commenced a most violent assault upon the six soldiers with clubs, chairs and knives, at the same time closing the door to prevent their escape. The soldiers were wholl y unarmed; a notorious individual , named Tom Kell y, stabbed a soldier, when the soldier wrested the knife from him and killed him with it. A hi ghl y respectable citizen of Port Deposit, Robert Thomson, was also killed ; he had distinguished himself for his violent denunciation of t...

! From General Banks' Division. i The Baltimore American, of Monday last, says: That it is again in possession of news from Loudoun county, Virginia, through the same source hitherto proven so trustworthy, and learn that no Confederate troops in any numbers greater than small scouting parties are anywhere along the line of the Potomac from Leesburg up to Sir John's Rim; and, moreover, that notwithstanding some alarm on one side, and wistful looks in that direction from the other, there has beeu no force of any consequence along the route referred to since the battle of Manassas. From scouts across the river, as well as from other sources of direct information, it is quite certain that a great scarcity exists everywhere in that direction of the commonest articles in daily use, especially sugar, salt, and things usually deemed indispensable by families. A woman came over to the ! troops of Gen. Banks' column recently j with a quantity of butter and offered it for salt, and beg...
