Important from Virginia. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 16 October 1861
Important from Virginia. The Cincinnati "Gazette" states that on Monday, Rosecranz telegraphed to Washington for more troops, and that a requisition having been made on Governor Dennison, two Ohio regiments were ordered to the Kanawha. It appears that Floyd and Wise have been reinforced, and Rosecranz and Cox had fallen hack from Sewell Mountain. The report is that Lee had reenforced the rebel Generals, but this cannot be, for it was only on Thursday that the reconnoissanee under General Reynolds found his army to be fifteen thousand strong, and he could not have reinforced , Floyd since that time. That the rebels have been strengthened is undoubtedly true, but it will be found that this strength came from Beauregard, and not from Lee.

Einggold Cavalry at Hew Greek. In the recent severe skirmishing on New Creek, near Romney, Va., the Ringgolc showed itself to be an useful branch of thi army of Western Virginia. Although the rebel force was much larger than th< federals—their cavalry numbering som« 500—yet when the Ringgolds threw oui a challenge for a fair fight in an open fielc they declined to come "up to the scratch.' For many hours this gallant company hai rassed and kept at bay a superior force frequently driving back the secessionists" At one time they were virtually in possession of Romney, and had they been sustained by reinforcements could have held it, but the opposing force being so large as to enable them to overpower our men, they fell back to New Creek.—Review.

Engagement Between Gun Boats. The gun boats T y ler and Lexington had an active engagement on Monday with the rebel shore batteries at Iron Banks, three miles from Columbus. The boats left Cairo at nine o'clock, for down-river reconnoisance, and arriving at Lucas Bend got sig ht of the rebel gun-boat Jeff. Davis, which, on chase being given, put about with all possible despatch for Columbus. The Lexington and Conestoga. while in chase, and throwing shot, were suddenly fired upon from masked batteries on each side of the river. The shots, however, generally fell short. A battery of rifled cannon on the Iron Banks, threw balls over and around the gun boats, cutting close, but fortunatel y doing no damage. Parties on board represent the scene for a time as particularly exciting. 8hot and shell were Hying in uncomfortable proximity, making the air ring with music.

OABKOHAELS PAflt [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 16 October 1861
OABKOHAELS PAflt The officers of this "institution" went to Fayette County to get the printing done for their Annual Exhibition. Why they did it, we are at a loss to tell, unless they were resolved their work should be done no longer Br r/s AT HALF PRICE. If this were the case, however, why not have given the job to our neig hbor COOKE, who is a first-rate ' ¦ printer and no richer than ourselves ? The patrons of Carmichaels Fair, and the peop le generally in that vicinity, are i noted for their liberality, and we are quite sure have none of the picayune spirit that carried this.printing to another county.— : The generous souls who have the funds and destinies of the Society in their keep- ; ing deserve a wooden medal for their sharp, quarter-dollar financiering in this weighty transaction: and with a view to its early j bestowal we have to request Brother COOKE j to pass round his hat, if he- has a whole one. If he hasn't one with a crown, we have a half-worn slouch, the gift...

WKMHipCTIIIili! LITTLE GREENE 0. K. 1651 MAJORITY FOR LINDSEY!! The Whole Democratic Ticket Elected by Overwhelming Majorities!! It will be seen, by the returns of the late Election, which may be found in to-day's paper, that the gallant Democracy of Little Greene have achieved another signal triumph over SECTIONALISMand REPUBLICANISM. They have once more testified their unswerving attachment to the principles of the NATIONAL DEMOCRACY, and put the seal of their condemnation on the acts of the late .Republican Legislature and the CCBTIN Administration. They want no more RECKLESS and PRODIGAL Republican LIOISLATION, and corrupt and criminal squandering of the PUBLIC HOMES. Thev are for the UNION and the CONSTITUTION always, and for the Enforcement of the Laws, but they are not to be bullied and badgered out of their political OPIKIOVS and ATTACHMBNTS, or INTIMIDATED in the exercise of their BIGHTS by cowardly threats or opprgbious epithets. They will stand by the Government, ...
THE RESULT [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 16 October 1861
THE RESULT "Behold how Brightly Breaks the Morning!" FATBITS COCSTT.—In Fayette county the whole Democratic ticket is elected, by about seven hundred majority, with the exception of Kaine, the Democratic nominee for Assembly, whose majority is between five and six hundred. WASHINGTON COUNTY.—The vote is so close that the official returns Hill have to decide the election. It is thought, however, that the Democrats have elected their Sheriff and one of their Assemblymen, Col. Hopkins. The balance of the Republican ticket is most likely elected. PHILADELPHIA.—The entire Democratic county ticket is said ',o be elected. Ten Democrats out of seventeen Representatives have been elected to the Legislature. WESTMORELAND.— The whole Democratic ticket has been elected by an average majority of nearly ONE THOUSAND!—Old Westmorland" is herself again !

THE PRESIDENT JUDGESHIP [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 16 October 1861
THE PRESIDENT JUDGESHIP We have not, as yet, received the official rote of Fayette and Washington counties, nor can the exact vote be given until the Volunteers have been heard from; yet enough is known to justify the belief that LINDSEY'S majority in the District will reach TWENTY-TWO HUNDRED!—Such a thundering majority as that speaks volumes for the popularity of the Democratic candidate and Democratic cause. — Considering the hi gh character, admitted qualifications and extensive acquaintance of his opponent , Mr. LJNDSEY has made a fine run. The result by no means shows that AGE added any thing to Mr. VEECH'S speed or bottom. Years are all well enough in their way, and ought to make men wiser and better, but we are not of those who think young mm "fit for nothing" but paltry and insignificant positions. Mr. LIND - S *TT has talent and industry, and will, in eitr opinion, make an able, energetic and impartial Judge. Let those who doubt it wait and see.
OLD MORGAN REDEEMED-COL. POL LOOK AND JUDGE GARRARD. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 16 October 1861
OLD MORGAN REDEEMED-COL. POL LOOK AND JUDGE GARRARD. We feel like rejoicing with the author of the subjoined letter at the redemption of that stronghold of ancient Whiggery and modern Republicanism, Morgan township. The Democrats of that district deserve great credit for the courage and indomiiiitable energy they have shown in their long struggle with the opposition, which has at last been crowned with decided success, and wheeled Morgan into .rank with the Democratic townships of the county. Like the writer, we think that, as the whole ticket has been elected by large and ample majorities, it would be foolish and mischievous to "stir up strife '' in the party because of an unhappy misunderstanding which led to a diminution of Col. Pollock's vote in the South-eastern portion of the county. Judge Garrard's friends, we are glad to know, acted against his advice and example, but on what they believed to be reliable rumors. In this they were mistaken, however, and will, we are a...
STAND BY YOUR PARTY [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 16 October 1861
STAND BY YOUR PARTY A Democrat, says the "Valley Spirit," who was somewhat soured at certain proceedings in his party that did not exactly tally with his views, and who was about to bolt his party on that account laid his grievances before the old champion of Democracy, Andrew Jackson. The old Hero listened to his story and then raised himself erect, his eagle-eye flashing with fire and animation which characterized him in the daysof his prime, he brought his clenched hand down upon the table before him and exclaimed—"JVo, by the Eternal—Stand by your party." Coming from the lips of that wise and good man—he whom the Democracy and countrv ever delight to honor—his words should be the rallying cry of every true Democrat now when there exists an organized plot to destroy that time-honored party of which Jackson in his day was so proud. "Stand by your party" has ever been the motto of the Democracy—whether the prospects before us were bright and inviting or whether the dark clo...

front ©fltrespctttieirf For the Messenger. LETTER FROM 0AMP LATATETTE QlARTERS AT I-NIONTOWN, j THURSDAY, Oct. 10, 1SG1. } Messrs. Editors :—Agreeably to request made and promise given, I now pen you a brief account of the fortunes of the " Waynesburg Invincib/es," since their departure from home. Nothing of special note occurred after the procession left Waynesburg until its arrival at Jefferson. Before entering Jefferson, the teams halted and the members of the company dismounted and formed into ranksr, entering the town with colors flying and drums playing. When Hartzel's old hotel was reached, a halt was made, and the company separated into three squads, one marching to each ofthe inns. After dinner the line of march was again begun, continuing uninterrupted until we reached the rfver.— Here some delay occurred on account of forage of \ cattle in advance of us. But , at length, we all reached the Fayette county side, and began a brisk drive for the Capital. All along the...
THE WOOL CLIP. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 16 October 1861
THE WOOL CLIP. For the Messenger. Messrs. Editors:—After handling a considerable quantity of wool for a series of years in Greene County, we simply state, for the benefit of wool growers, that the clip has been improved at least fifty per cent, both in quality and condition. We notice that a number of farmers have'succeeded in so crossing and selecting their stock that the quantity and quality of their fleeces is of such grade that it is highly commendable. Of these, we think Mr. Dennis lams stands among the first rank, as he has spent almost a lifetime in this laudable enterprise of improving sheep. Also, we think Mr. Timothy Ross deserves notice as a wool grower, judging from the fancy lot of wool we bought of himself and Mr. Longdon; knowing that he has spared neither pains or expense in selecting from the best flock in his vicinity which is noted for fancv wools. Persons who are fond of seeing good stock and fine wool will be well paid for examining their stock. To ventu...
