The Bebel Design Upon Louisville. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 2 October 1861
The Bebel Design Upon Louisville. The Louisville Democrat says :—"It is now certain that the whole purpose of the movements made at Elizabethtown and Lebanon, on Tuesday, under the orders of General Buckner, was to prepare the way for the invasion and conquest of Louisville by the Confederate forces of Tennessee.— The Home Guard from this city and Roseeau's brigade was evidently quick enough to disappoint, for a time, the expectation of our enemies, and we hope they are strong enough to maintain, for the present, the position they have deemed it necessnry to take to secure our safety. But we need not flatter ourselves that they must not be speedily strengthened.— Troops beyond all question will come from Camp Boon or Camp Trousdale, or both, reinforced from the southern part of Ken tucky and other secession localities in our State, in sufficient numbers to sweep before them the comparatively small force that has gone from this direction ; unless the latter shall receive a pr...

Dissatisfaction with the Bebel Leaders—A Remarkable Letter. BALTIMORE, " September 21. — The '! Amer.ean"has received, by the hand of a refugee from Virginia, several Virginia .papers, including the Richmond wha<j of the 6th, which contains a remarkable letter from Franklin Minor, most bitterl y denouncing the Administration of Jeff. Davis. The Richmond "Examiner" of the 12th says it is evident to every intelligent observer that the embittered remnant of the submissionist party, fully represented in the Virginia Convention, is bent on the organization of a regular opposition to the Government.— Under all the names that it has borne, that element in our politics has been invariably against tho Southern: and though the events of last spring annihilated its material form , or at least caused it to disappear from the public view, it exists always with undiminished virulence, and awaits the opportunity to spring into li g ht again. The following article in the Richmond whi...

More about Mulligan's Command. CHICAGO , September 25.—From reports of some of Mulligan's command who reached this cit y last ni g ht, the following additional particulars are gleaned : The men started from Lexington on Saturday afternoon. Nearly two hours were occupied in crossing the river, and at three o'clock they started for Hamilton , forty miles distant, under tho guidance of several armed secessionists.

Details of the Battle of Lexington. HUDSON- , Mo., SeptEmber 23.—The following account of the seige of Lexington is furnished to the St. Louis ' "Republican," by Henry Bradburn, one of Colonel Mulligan's soldiers, who left Lexington Saturday morning. The Fort was surrounded on Friday afternoon. The men fought for fifty-nine hours without water, and had only three barrels of vinegar to quench their thirst during all that time. There were no springs or wells of water in the Camp ground as has been stated. The supply was from the river, and was cut off after a desperate fight on Wednesday.— The camp ground consisted of about ten acres, and was located a short distance from the river. There were breastworks entirely around it, with the exception of the portion next the river. It was here the hardest fighting took place. The rebels procured a large number of hemp bales, rolled thtm in advance and under their cover, gradually succeeded ingaininga position in the rear. They then cut ...

An Action at Point of Books. POINT OF ROCKS , Sept. 24.—To-day an action took p lace at this point between a part of the force under Col. Geary and 400 or 500 rebels on the Virginia side of the Potomac. The enemy wore sheltered in the hi gh point of Catoctin mountain, and in the houses at its base, but they were driven from every place by the battery and rifles of Col. Geary's command.

Democrats of Greene I HH>^a - _______H---___________» ^I "^^sH w ocratic-party in this county and Distr.V^ have nothing to lose and much to gain.— I Even our opponents admit that our ticket is an excellent one, and to say that it will command a large and cordial support is only to say that worth and ability are »T.S8-ports to public favor. First on the Ticket is *-' JAMES LINDSEY, Eso,. I Our candidate for President Judge of the 14th District. A lawyer of large practice and extensive acquirements, a courteous gentleman in business and social intercourse, and endowed with an intellect of rare quickness and vigor, he would make an able and popular Judge. He has sprung from one of the oldest and most influential Democratic families in the county, and has himself rendered -ignal services to the party in past struggles and trials. No man of his years has perhaps addressed, more popular assemblages, or lacbor.d more indefatigably for Democratic r' ascendency; and he has ser...
Let it be Remembered. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 2 October 1861
Let it be Remembered. No voter should forget that the Republican Legislature of last Winter repealed the TONNAGE TAX, by which THREE OR FOUR HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS of revenue is annually taken from the State. This has absolutely been HVEN AWAY to the Pennsylvania Cenral Railroad Company, is to be made up >y DIRECT TAXATION UPON THE PEOPE.

"THE TICKET. THE WHOLE TICKET AND NOTHING BUT THE TICKET?" [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 2 October 1861
"THE TICKET. THE WHOLE TICKET AND NOTHING BUT THE TICKET?" DEMOCRATS OF G-REEN-K ! If any attempt is made by Republican wire-workers or others, at or before the election, to induce you to drop a candidate, or to "trade" off a Democratic nominee for a Republican, frown upon and denounce the trickster and trafficker.

Stand by it, and work forth for it faithfully, and make every honest and honorable effort to increase our usual Democratic majority.— And when the election is over, you will have the proud satisfaction of knowing that you did your duty, YOUR WHOLE ncTV, and NOTHING BUT YOUR DUTY".

BEAD IT. We invite the special attention of the reader to the article of "JUSTICR" on the first page of to-day's paper. It is a forcible summary of facts, and a complete vindication of the Democracy from the foul expression of disloyalty. Read it, and hand it to your neighbor.
THE "10 PABTY" PABTI [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 2 October 1861
THE "10 PABTY" PABTI The most hypocritical of the Republican press quote from Judge Douglas' last speech, with varied marks of emphasis, the following: "Whoever is not prepared to sacrifice party organization* and platform* on the altar of his country, does not deserve the support and countenance of honest people." Whose Platform, pertinently asks the Harrisburg Patriot, does the preservation of the altar of our country require to be sacrificed ? Not the Democratic platform, certainly, for on and by that it has been preserved from the commencement of the Government down. "The Union and the Constitution, they must be preserved," has ever been the foundation of the Democratic organization and platform. Did the pres ervation of our country require it to be sacrificed, it would be most cheerfull y done. But who is it that is not prepared to sacrifice the party platform on the altar of their country? It is those who have declared their party platform "a law" to them —who have dec...
TBUE, EVEBY WOBD OF IT [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 2 October 1861
TBUE, EVEBY WOBD OF IT The Democracy of New York, who nominated a full, straight ticket at their late State Convention, adopted the following Resolution :— "Reiolved, That the hopes of the country depend upon the unity and vigor of the Democratic party in this crisis. That a Democratic victory in this State would be hardly less auspicious to the cause of the Union than the triumph of the federal armies on the field of battle. That, therefore, we hold these Democrats who, from motives of ambition or factiousness, are seeking to divide and distract the party, as not only treacherous to its principles, but disloyal to the country." The Democratic party throughout the country have vast responsib.litiesj devolved on them in the present emergency, and they should be fully alive to their grave duties. THE UNION Mf?ST BE PRESERVED, and every attempt to abandon it, or to relax a siugle one of its sacred bonds, on the part of Abolition fanatics of the North, who in times gone by were no...
SENATOB DOUGLAS ON PABTYISM [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 2 October 1861
SENATOB DOUGLAS ON PABTYISM The Chicago Times, one of the ablest and most orthodox Democratic papers in the West, and the organ of the late Senator DOUGLAS, expresses the following just views on this subject. It says: "The 'No Party men, use the language of Stephen A. Douglas to prove that he favored the dissolution of the Democracy.— As these men are republicans, this is the first time in their lives that they have alluded to the great western statesman in terms of approbation, and, as might be expected, they do not quote him fairly. "Douglas never assumed that a man must cease to be a Democrat to be a patriot. He never advised his party alone, but the whole people, to drop mere partizan politics, and to devote their energies to the war. His followers tried the experiment sufficiently to find that the Republican leaders were not sincere in it, and that with them 'no party' meant'no Democratic party.' "If Mr. Douglas had lived to witness the events of the last sixty days, he...

"The thirty thousand dollars of governmeat money lost at a gambling house in Washington, by Paymaster Gallagher, has been recovered by the detective employed by Provost Marshal General Porter.— Gallagher is under arrest, but claims that he is able to secure the government against any loss."—Ex. ___r*That is the way the publie monies are being sqandered by a large class of Republican officials. Between gamblers and villainous contractors, the $500,000,-000 will soon be used up. Is it not a great outrage on tax-payers that their means should be entrusted to such consummate rascals as are now largely employed in disbursing the public means ? And do not Mr. Lincoln and his Cabinet owe it to themselves, to the people, and to the cause in which tee are all engaged, to ferr et out and summarily eject from their positions the scouudrels who are plundering the treasury in this style?
