A band of throe hundred marauding rebels is encamped at Wilson's Mill, on Bryant's fork of the White rive...

The Bumpr from flew Orleans. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 23 October 1861
The Bumpr from flew Orleans. The dispatches from N ew Orleans, says the New York '-Post" of last evening, states that our fleet was driven ' on shore and "peppered" "on the Southwest Pass bar." Now the Southwest Pass, and every other pass of the Mississi ppi, has been made impassable to Mr. lloilins and his musqttito fleet by a fort which our troops have within four weeks past built at that point of the river, where it first divides itself to form the Delta.— This fort, we are able to state on perfectly trustworthy authority (that of Mr. G. W. Blunt * who knows our whole coast as well as he does Broadway or Wall streets,) was completed before the day on which Hollins dates his action; and whatever he did he must have accomplished above and not below it. It seems reasonably certain, therefore, that he did not drive our vessels ashore in the Southwest Pass, which he could not enter, and we may expect to hear, when our own reports come to hand, that Hollins' dispatch is one of Fa...

Difficulty between Lane and Sturgis. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 23 October 1861
Difficulty between Lane and Sturgis. We find in the Chicago papers some interesting and important news from Kansas City. On the 6th of October Lane and Sturgis were still there, the former with three thousand and the latter with four thousand men. A serious misunderstanding existed between the two Generals, owing, it is asserted, to General Sturgis' unfortunate habits. The whole circumstance is greatly to be deplored, as General Sturgis has proved himself on more than one occasion to be an excellent and most valuable officer. We learn, however, that the difficulty had proceeded so far that Lane positively refused to obey the orders of Sturgis, though the latter was his superior in rank.— It is asserted that Lane is about to make charges against Sturgis. The whole affair will doubtless bo settled by General Fremont. Through the same ¦ source we receive additional particulars touching the expedition to Osceola. The enemy, it seems, fled and left the inhabitants to continue the...

The Reported Battle at Shanghai, Mo. The following particulars of the fight at Shanghai, Missouri, previously reported in our despatches, are given by our correspondent of the St. Louis Democrat, who writes from Rolla under date of October 12th :—"A man named Wm. Horn, from Lawrence county, passed through this place yesterday morning with his family, for Illinois. He left home last Saturday. He reports that a fight took place on Friday, the 27th ult., between the UnioB force under Montgomery and Jennison, and the advanced guard of Ben McCulloch's army and the State Guards under Judge Chenault, who were marching North, it is supposed to reinforce Price.— The battle commenced near Shanghai, in Barton county, about 8 o'clock on Friday morning, when the rebels were driven back with great slaughter and were pursued across Centre Creek. The next morning the cannonading commenced at 10 o'clock, and the enemy continued to retreat until they were driven from thirtyfive to forty miles...

THE OLD PARTY _"STILL LIVES!" "The Good Time Coming!" THE RESULT IN THE ST\TEl Enough returns have been received from the various legislative districts of the State to justify the belief that the Democracy will have an efficient working majority in the next House of Representatives. The people have had their "sober second thought." and the doom of Republicanism is sealed and its epitaph written. "Thus the (/lory of this world passetk away!"—"Alas, poor Yorick!'' What new-fangled name our opponents are to assume, what new-fangled creed they will promulgate, and what new-fangled organization is to supplant the Republican party, ''let time and chance determine. '" We shall doubtless have something rare and startling. We are indebted, in good part, to our neighbor of the Washington Examiner for "a condensation of the returns'' thus far received from various parts of the State:— Allegheny County.—The entire Republican ticket is elected, with the exception of Blaekmore.

REMOVALS FB0M OFFICE—KEPUB LI0AHIHTOLEBANOE. Notwithstanding the 'No-Party' teachings and proclivities of Republican politicians, the Guillotine at Washington still numbers its daily victims. Among the last of the decapitated is our neighbor. WILLIAM C. LiN_s_r, Esq., late a Clerk in the Patent Office, who parted with his official head but a few days since. Xo charge of incompetency or negb-ot <y( duty was brought against him; jug Democratic princip les and affiliations constituted the "head and front of his offending;" and for these he received peremptory "leave to quit." Soon after the breaking out of the Rebellion, and while the Capitol was thought to be in immediate danger of assault, Mr. L INDSET relinquished his post and repaired to thefieldas a private in one ofthe District Companies, and remained in service until the term of his enlistment expired. AB he had afforded high proof of his patriotism, and as he had dischargod the duties of his official position wit...

THE TBUTH, WELL SAID. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 23 October 1861
THE TBUTH, WELL SAID. The Chambersburg Spirit truly and forcibly says every Democrat, unless self-interest blinds him, must see that by standing by the Flag of bis Country he is no more under the necessity of endorsing Abolitionism or Republicanism than he is of embracing Spiritualism, Agrarian, or Free-Loveism. He must indeed be a sorry sort of a Democrat that can be made to believe that he cannot perform his whole duty to his country unless he abandons Democratic principles, and joins hands with Republicans to save their sinking party. The Democratic party, with the exception of about 12 years since the organization of the Government have controlled its affair-, and every important question of govern r/i<:i,ta! j,oli<-y, foreign and domestic, has hi-.i-.n v-x\:—i and established by the Democratic party. To \x-. told at this late day that a demo':r_ii>> r'-.ij'iired to forsake his party in order to stand by his country is a strange doctrine, and no...

WAYNESBUBG 0ABBIAGE FA0T0BT [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 23 October 1861
WAYNESBUBG 0ABBIAGE FA0T0BT We dropped in, the other day, at our neighbor DOUGHERTY'S Carriage Factory on Greene street, and were so well pleased with the style, appearance and substantial build of his vehicles, that we bought ourselves a Buggy, and a snug one at that, (on credit, of course!) His work is elegantly finished, and compares favorably in all respects, with any we have ever inspected. He manufactures Carriages, Sulkies and Sleighs, as well as Buggies, and sells at less than Pittsburgh prices. Besides, "BOB" is an honest and obliging fellow, and deserves encouragement. Such of our friends (and, from our late experiences, we think "their name is legion,") as need Buggies, or anything in his line, would consult their own interests not less than "BOB'S" and ours, by giving him a call, and an larly one, too. [P. S. Our immediate circle and the "rest of mankind" will please take notice that, while we speak to our poor acquaintances as usual, our opinion of Buggyborrowin...
PENNSYLVANIA ARMY FBAUDS [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 23 October 1861
PENNSYLVANIA ARMY FBAUDS Messrs. Benjamin Heyward, Jacob Fry, Jr., C. F. Abbott, Caleb Cope and Evans Rogers, the commissioners appointed to investigate the alleged frauds in the supp lies furnished to Pennsylvania volunteers in April and May last, have at length made their report. The report proper, together with the testimony, is very voluminous.— With respect to the operations at the Girard House, the commission found no evidence of fraud. Of the "blanket transaction" the Commission say that "great and just complaint was made," and very sharply censure one case where the blankets were purchased at prices ranging from$l,-50 to $3 per pair, and charged to the State at $3,50 realizing a profit to the contractors of $6,700. In the articles of undershirts, stockings and caps, from the sam ples presented, the commission inclines to think that the State was charged very full prices, at the same time perhaps not exhorbitant. The Commission report, in general, "as the result of th...
