Untitled Article [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 23 October 1861

WHAT DOES IT MEAN ?—The most wonderful activity prevails in the Quartermaster's Department at Washington. Wagons, horses and mules are constantly arriving, and an enormous quantity of oats and hay has been accumulated. There are nearly eleven thousand horses at the Government depot three thousand wagons. Five hundred teamsters have been advertised for, in addition to those alread y employed.— All this, with the unusual activity manifested in every direction may mean that there is something afloat that may take the country b y surprise. e — U@*.Reli gion is not a thing which spends itself. It is like a river which widens continuall y, and is never so broad or so deep as at its mouth , where it rolls into the ocean of eternity.

LITTLE SHOES AND STOCKINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 23 October 1861

LITTLE SHOES AND STOCKINGS. LITTLE Shoes and Stockings ! What a tale ye speak Of the swollen eyelid And the tear-wet cheek ! Of the nightly virgil, And the dnily prayer ; Of the buried darling, Present everywhere. Brightly plaided Stockings, Of the finest wool ; Rounded feet and dainty, Each a stocking hill; Tiny shoes of crimson, Shoes that nevermore Will awaken echoes From the toy-strewn floor. Not the wealth of Indies Could your worth eclipse, Priceless little treasures. Pressed to whitened lips, As the mother muses, From the world apart, Leaning on the arrow That has pierced her heart. Head of flaxen ringlets, Eyes of Heaven's blue, Parted mouth—a rose bud—Pearls just peeping through, Soft arms fondly twining Round her neck at eve ; Little Shoes and Stockings, These the dreams ye weave! Weave her yet another Of the world of bliss ; Let the stricken mother Turn away from this : Bid her dream believing Little feet await, Watching for her passing Through the pearly gate. • Co...

frmit $Mmpnhni$ [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 23 October 1861

frmit $Mmpnhni$ For the Messenger. PAETY SPIRIT. The record has been made. History is repeating itself. Our government which for eighty years has withstood the deep planned schemes of plotting princes of the Old World is now the scene of a civil war which threatens to shake it to the very foundation. Civil war has justly been termed "the worst of all evils which a nation is called to meet," yet we may reasonably hope the issue will in our case be different from what it has been in many other instances. We are in the midst of a rebellion and a very natural inquii-y arises how can we best terminate the difficulty by means honorable and just to all? Some advise compromise measures while others advocate coercion as the only possible way of adjusting the matter and effectually silencing the voice of rebellion. Among the many ideas preseated as a means of advancing the cause ofthe Union we can find none more treasonable than the obliteration of party lines. How will that better the ...

g&ta af tlje fag. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 23 October 1861

g&ta af tlje fag. The Greatest Well Yet, The editor of the Mercer Dispatch gives a description of an extraordinary vein of oil tapped .the other day on the McElhany farm, at a depth of 480 feet. He says: A watch was held while it ran into a tank, holding, by some measure, one hundred and eight barrels, and it filled the same in fifty-fine minutes ! At a fair estimate, i taking this as a data, those who were I working and watching about it are confident that in the first twenty-four hours, it flowed two thousand four hundred barrels of oil! And when we left on Friday morning there appeared to be but little diminution. What is also remarkable, is the fact, that this well is located not more than twenty rods from the Funk well, which has been flowing some four months, and has yielded an incredible quantity of the greasy fluid. It would be supposed that the latter had drained all the wells for a considerable distance around, but here is one still prolific within twenty rod...

Aniline , [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 23 October 1861

Aniline, home years ago a ueriimn cnemisi, experimenting on coal tar, discovered a beautiful purple color, but took no particular notice of it; he merely jotted down the tact, and gave to the color the name of Aniline. Recently, a young chemist, Mr. Perkins of Greenford Green, near London, a pupil of Dr. Hofmaun, ofthe Museum of Practical Geology, Jermyn street, was trying to produce the well-known quinine bitter from Benzole, another substance said by Professor Faraday to exist in coal products. The composition of quinine and of benzole was well-known, and theory indicated that the former could be produced from the latter ; and so the experiments were begun. Every one knows how, on going for a countrv walk, we are often led by some stray flower or trivial incident to go out of the path we originally intended to take.— So with young Perkins ; he started off in search of quinine, but was arrested by the beauty of aniline. Under his fostering care, aniline has now become the p...

I Darine to Do. ' [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 23 October 1861

I Darine to Do. ' ¦ | Small minds spend a good deal of time in deciding, as to a particular course of conduct , whether 'they can afford to do it," '-What will Mrs. Grund y say ?" is a question of moracntous interest. To do anything which j Mrs. Upstart or the '-Smith's would i consider "mean, " is no more to bo thought of. than committing a petty larceny, and being found out. It is known that any of the Want-to-be's wouid almost as lief be found coming ! out of a hen-roost at midni ght, as to ! live in any street having "East" attached to it; while there are those who feel forty feet hig her, by reason j of their being able to say, " 1 live in j.Fifth Avenue;" and for such to be j seen with a bundle or package in the hand on Broadway! they would fairly tremble in their shoes, lest they might be recognised by some one into whose "set" they were aiming to obtain an entree. A Baltimore Buonaparte surprised a friend one day, by carrying a broom hor iiewai-d. "Wh y, it belongs t...

I Peace vs. War. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 23 October 1861

I Peace vs. War. j The Xevv York Observer speaks as \ follows : I " We are among the most earnest friends of peace. AVe would suffer I wrong for the sake of peace. But I we see no possible solution of the i present complication of our national [ troubles, except in the re-adjustment ; of the Union on the basis of the Con-| stitution. We deprecate the war j spirit and desire to cultivate that : feeling which will the most easily \ restore friendly relations with those . who have cast off the bonds of allei g iance to their lawful Government. ] But we cannot forget that the men ' who are now in arms against the j Government initiated a causeless, uni justifiable and unlawful war; that the I war is chiefly on their heads, and j that we are solely seeking to uphold the Union which our fathers formed , and on which the future prosperity ofthe country depends. As reli gious j men, the duty of allegiance to lawful j Government and to suppress rebellion j is as clear to us as the du...

Ifarmer ai& Jfiusetoifo. j ! j ' ! HOW TO CHOOSE A FAEM H0KSE. j The farmer requires a horse that : can take him to market and around ; his farm, oil which he can occasionally ride for p leasure, and which he ; must sometimes use for the plough j and harrow. ! First to notice is the eyes, which | should be well examined. Clearness ' of the eye is a sure indication of goodness ; but this is not all—the eyelids, j ejebrows, and all other appendages | must be considered—for many horses, whose eyes appear clear and brilt liant, go blind at an earl y age; there-| fore be careful to observe whether I the part between the eyelids and eye-I brows are swollen, for this indicates i that the eye will not last. : j \\ hen the eyes are remarkabl y flat, S sunk within their orbits, it is a bad : sign.

| No Front Teeth. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 23 October 1861

| No Front Teeth. l A musician recently undertook to trade cows with a certain nei ghbor H , but after some bantering, II told the man : that lu ' s "old cow wasn,t worth a song; she was so old she had no front teeth in her upj^er jaw, and couldn't therefore eat young grass. Singing friend laughed, [ and went off whistling. But the remark of II had preyed on his mind, and he accordingly went and examined old Brindle's mouth, and to his horror and surprise he found that she was entirel y destitute of upper front teeth ! Infuriated he drove old Brindle two miles to the house of the ; man he had bought her of, through a drij ving rain-storm, with the mud up to his : knees, and after berating the surprised , farmer for selling him such a cow, dej manded his money back at once. As soon j as he could get a word in edgewise, the j farmer told the angry man that cows never | wore such teeth on the upper jaw, and to ; convince him, took him out to the barn-; yard, when, after opening t...
