WashWton Oity Items. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 9 October 1861
WashWton Oity Items. WASHINGTON CITY, Sept. 29.—Early this forenoon, the p ickets from Gen. Smith's position advanced to and now occupy Falls Church. Neither this nor the preceding movements met with any opposition whatever, as the rebel army had on Friday night retreated from the whole line of their position fronting Washington. Upton's Hill, this side of Falls Church, is necessarily included among the points now held by the federal forces. The works ofthe enemy at the p laces they had evacuated were , in a military view, almost worthless , beingnothing more than rifle pits of very common construction. The positions at Munson's and Murray's Hill afforded the rebels nearly an unobstructed view of all our fortifications and other defences. The appearance oftheground deserted by the rebels. indicates that they were deficient in those arrangements which serve to make a camp life comfortable , having no tents but merely shelters rudely constructed. There were no signs to show that...

-_ -—. ._ • .-» — _ . _ More ofthe Fremont and Blair Difficulty—Blair Eeleased by Gen. Scott. WASHINGTON , October 1.—From facts ascertained here , it appears that on Wednesday last Gen. Fremont released Col. Blair from arrest for using language in the order tantamount to a defiance of the General to present his charges formally. On Thursday, Col. Blair presented charges formally against Gen. Fremont, in response to the defiance. Thereupon, General Fremont immediately arrested Colonel Blair, and sent him to Jefferson Barracks. On Friday night tho telegraph was allowed to communicate the fact that Blair had been freed from arrest tho previous Wednesday, but the offensive paragraph in the order of release was suppressed, and the fact of of Col. Blair's second arrest witheld. The army regulations allow no officer to be arrested for a longer period than eight days without charges being preferred. Gen. Fremont disregarded the regulations in the case of Col. Blair. After this violat...

&_pa_tautN.WB from Jeffeiwn €_ty. JBFFBRSON CITY , September SO.—A special dispatch to the St. Louis Re publican says that Lieut. Col. Thacher;ofCol. Peabod y V Begiment , and Lieut. Tennalt , of Col. Marshall's Regiment; who were at Lexington , have arrived and give some interesting particulars from that place. They say that the rebels can easily turn out, and probably will, three 12 pounders per week at the Lexington foundry, and that they are very busy in making balls of all kinds. They report that the rebels have a large amount of'powder and ammunition of every variety buried in the vicinity of Lexington , and that they have recently dug up a great deal. Two thousand pounds of loaded shell were discovered by the rebels , in Mulligan's intrenchments on the very day of the surrender, our troops having no idea of their concealment , and they were deposited there for three months.

Effects of the Surrender at Lexington. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 9 October 1861
Effects of the Surrender at Lexington. A correspondent of the St. Louis Eepublican, writing from Jefferson City, the capital of Missouri, on the 23d inst., comments as follows upon the probable effects of the fall of Lexington. 'The actual loss of Lexington is trifling, compared to the disadvtage of its moral effect in the State, and the renewed hope, strength and confidence it will g ive to the cause of secession in Missouri. "The loyal citizens of ten to twenty counties in the northern and western parts ofthe State will be exposed to new persecutions and outrages, and abused and driven from their homes by the rebels. The fugitives here from variousqwartersfeel entirely disheartened, and know 'not wheat to tarn in the midst of their misfortunes. The Wlierabouts of Senator Breckinrid ge and Other Distinguished Kentucky Secessionists. Senator Breckenridga, with Keene Richards, arrived last S_nd»y night week at Prestonsburg, Floyd county, which joins the" Virginia boundary. ...
A Degenerate Son. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 9 October 1861
A Degenerate Son. On die 25th inst, , a Federal detachment captured James B. Clay, with sixteen of his men, while on their way to join the forces ofthe rebel General Zollicotfer. To what infamy has a great name been reduced ! The son of Henry Clay taken in rebellion against the Union—plotting treason against Kentucky—plotting the ruin of all that his iminorlal father loved best, of all which adorned his name and will approve his gloiy to distant ages! There is a refinement of wickedness in the disloyalty of this man. which throws even John C. Brcckenridge into the shade, dwarfs all ordinary traitors into pigmies.— This attitude, too, must startle the country, for he is the son of gallant ' Harry of the West, Beyond that I he would be a common rebel, for he I l is not greatly blessed Avitb brains, i and has no influence save that name , I which he now draggles in infamy. — \ We are glad that he is arrested— i glad that the blood of Henry Clay, j even in the veins of a degener...
-?— i The Enemy Falling Back on Manassas, &c. ! [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 9 October 1861
-?— i The Enemy Falling Back on Manassas, &c. ! WASHTNOTON , October 2.—Contin- j ued evidence has been received here! to-day that the enemy is falling back ' on Manassas, making that permanent-1 l y his centre of operations. It is the impression here that a part of the Manassas force is going' to Kentucky, and the absence of a j large rebel force on the Upper Potomac confirms this. Hon. John A. Gurley is here on business connected with Fremont's command , of whose staff he is a member. The New York 37th denies having burned any of the property at the time ofthe advance to Munson's Hill, and charges it on the rebels. A Mr. Haley, just arrived from Charleston, says that Fort Sumter has been prepared for a siege in anticipation of an attack on Charleston.
When the Battle May be Expected. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 9 October 1861
When the Battle May be Expected. The public must not be impatient for the clashing of the two great armies now approaching each other in ihe centre of Missouri. The best information from Lexington is to the the effect that General Price will make his stand at that city with the main bod y of his army, and perhaps choose as his vantage ground the very entrenchments which were so gallantly and successfully defended b y Col. Mulligan. To reach him , therefore, and give him decisive battle even within ten days time , will require extraordinary exertion on the part of General Fremont. He has forwarded to Jefferson city an immense quantity of army baggage, including artillery and ammunition , the transportation of which will be comparativel y easy and rapid by railroad to Sedalia, but the movement of which across the country by wagons will necessarily be difficult and slow. If the enemy therefore should not advance and give battle "at some point South of Lexington , we must not lo...

McOlellan and His Generals. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 9 October 1861
McOlellan and His Generals. Bayard Taylor, in describing a recent review of the Union troops, says:—I had an opportunity of contrasting McClcllan with a score of Generals and princes. There was McDowell, Porter, Keyes, Blenker, Smith and Marcy, all manly, gallant faces, and figures of true military bearing; Cols. De Trobriand and Salm Salm, with their dashing, chivalresque air; thePrince de Joinville, twisted and stooping, lounging on his horse ; the Orleans Princes, with their mild, amiable faces and aspect of languid interist—in all, a most remarkable group of figures. A horse's length in advance sat the smallest man ofthe party, broad-shouldered, strong-chested, strong-necked and strong-jawod, one hand upon his hi p, while the other, by an occasional rapid motion, flung some communication to the passing squadron of cavalry. The visor ofhis cap was well pulled down over his eyes, yet not a man in the lines escaped his observation; his glance seemed to take in at once the w...

Col. Enyart, surrounded and attacked the rebels at Chapmanville, and after a short engagement completely routed them, killing sixty and taking seventy prisoners. The rebels in escaping were interrupted by Col. Iliatt, who killed forty and took a large number prisoners. The country between Charleston and the Guyandotte river is now freed from secession power.— This is the most effectual blow given the rebels in this part of the valley. When the Kanawha left Charleston, there was a report of a battle going on between Cox and Floyd and Wise, at Jewel Mountain. The rebels were getting the worst of it, and falling back upon their entrenchments at Lewishnr «-.

PEES-DEUT LINCOLN AND FEE MONT'B PBOOLAMATION. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 9 October 1861
PEES-DEUT LINCOLN AND FEE MONT'B PBOOLAMATION. We clip the following editorial paragraph from the Pittsburgh Dispatch: "President Lincoln has made no mistake since he came into the Presidential chair BO great as that of interfering with the r proclamation of Gen. Fremont. We have refrained all along from finding fault with his war policy, or that ofhis Cabinet, but * the outspeaking of the people is unmistakable. Could he but mingle among them—not among Republicans only, but among Democrats—he would feel that he has committed a very grave error. It is an almost universal sentiment, we believe, that if any property of traitors and rebels is to be confiscated, slave, above ill, should not be exempt." The "Dispatch" is not the only Abolition print that denounces Mr. Lincoln for man-I fully insisting upon the observance of LAW. Nearly every radical Republican paper we have seen, and nearly even' Republican politician, and all "the little dogs," "Tray, Blanche and Sweetheart," ar...

GEEAT FEESHET [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 9 October 1861
GEEAT FEESHET Our Pittsburgh exchanges are filled with details of the losses by the late sudden rise in the Monongahela, Allegheny and Ohio rivers, and their tributaries. The creeks in this county were all much swollen, and a great deal of property was destroyed. At Pittsburgh, the "Post" informs ue "the fall of water was uninterrupted for twenty four hours, and the rise of the water was very rapid. The Monongahela rose first, but in a few hours the Allegheny commenced pouring down and the two rivers joined their powerful currents into an angry and destructive flood. On Saturday afternoon the water was at 27 feet, and it continued rising until it reached between 20 and 30 feet. All day on Saturday and Sunday the surface of the Allegheny was covered with timber, shingles, oil in barrels, and other property which had been lying along the banks of the rivers not well secured. An immense number of rafts of boards and timber have been carried away. In the lower part of Allegheny ...
