>»^v Shocking Occurrence. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 30 October 1861

>»^v Shocking Occurrence. An employee in the works oi iN lmick & Co., West Pittsbui-gh, named George Harcber, was shockingly and perhaps fatally injured last evening by swallowing a mouth full of vitriol out of a jug, handed to him as whisky by a German laborer named Joseph Frauenholz. Another companion, who put the poison to his lips, was also burned. Marcher made information before Justice Sprung against Frauenholz for attempting to poison him, and he was committed to jail to await the result of the unfortunate man's injuries. One of theteamstrrs had just brought the vitriol to the mill, and had given it to the German to take care of a few moments. He Bays he did not know but that the vessel did contain whiskey, and when the men aefeed him for nom«\ he told then to drink quick. Frawenholz likewise avers that the driver told him it was whisky. The circumstances ofthis occurrence should be thoroughly investigated.

Stamped Newspaper Wrappers, [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 30 October 1861

Stamped Newspaper Wrappers, The Postmaster General has ordered to be placed on sale at the post offices, a new and convenient form of newspaper wrappers, which will supply a long existing want on the part of the public. Thesewrappers are formed of oblong square sheets, gumed at . one end, and adapted to any size newspaper. The introduction of these convenient envelopes will, doubtless, greatly increase the postal revenues, and promote the interests of newspaper publishers by the facilities which they afford in the transmission of their publications through the mails. The venders of newspapers should supply themselves with them, the better to enable purchasers of their papers to transmit them, when read, to their friends.

General Buckner Eein&roed. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 30 October 1861

General Buckner Eein&roed. Our latest advices from Kentucky are contradictory. One account says that Gen, Buckner has left Bowling Green with a portion of his ragged command for Cumberland Gap, and that only three regiments remain at Bowling Green. Gen. Buckner has received large re-enforce ments from Tennessee, Texas and Missouri. He has over twenty thousand men, one thousand of whom are Indians. Hardee is there from Missouri, and six thousand are from Columbus. Breckinridge was also there. Another account speaks of the above reinforcements, but states that Buckner is still at Bowling Green. We believe the last account, as that place is far too important to be given up to us without a decisive battle.

Eeports From The Enemy. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 30 October 1861

Eeports From The Enemy. An intelligent contraband who, came into Gen. McCall's camp on Moaday afternoon reports that when he left Fairfax Court House yesterday, at 2 o'clock, p. m., no movement of the rebels was on foot.— The rebel troops are destitute of nearly everything except fresh beef. They had plenty of blankets, but a great scarcity of shoes. They were tearing up the railroad tracks to Vienna, and bailing thuu to Fairfax Court House. Should there be a battle to-morrow, no sufficient accommo dations could be had for the wounded. At present the hospitals are filled with sick soldiers. The number necessarily discharged because physically unfit for duty at the time of enlistment was very large.-— Colonels and captains have shown themselves too anxious to raise men to see that they are good men. New buildings are, however, in process of erection sufficient, for all contingencies.

A Reconnoisanoe of the Rebel Clamps. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 30 October 1861

A Reconnoisanoe of the Rebel Clamps. The withdrawal ot'tke enemy from his advanced positions in front of the Union lines is fully confirmed by Professer La Mountain, who made a baloon ascension on Friday.— Shortly before five o'clock he ascended from a point about six miles west of Alexandria. The wind carried him five or six miles over the enemy's camps, around Fairfax station, when, rising into another current, he took a curcuit to Fairfax Court House , and thence back to our lines, landing at Gen. Blenker's headquarters.— Although the morning had been cloudy, the afternoon was clear , affording the Professor a splendid opportunity for observation. He had an excellent view of the enemy's position, and could see their encampments at Manassas. There were no rebel forces, says a Herald dispatch, except here and there a man this side of Fairfax Court House. At the Court House there were only a few companies, and the appearance of the bivouacs demonstrated that the position had...

• ii i Campaign Ended in Western Virginia. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 30 October 1861

• ii i Campaign Ended in Western Virginia. It appears to be the general belief, says the Wheeling Jwte{7<<7ertce/- ,that the campaign in Western Virginia is virtually ended. Rosecranz has fallen back and taken a position on the Charleston and Lewisburg turnpike, a short distance above the junction of New and Gauley rivers. The rebel army appears to have retired tewards Lewisburg. The roads are represented as having become so bad in that region as to render military transportation next to impossible, and that of course renders any important army movement impracticable, for a time at least. There ought to be a month of good weather, however, and in that time something might and ought to be done, for we take it that the bad roads at this juncture are occasioned by the heavy rains a week or two back, and will soon be solid again. The real difficulty, we think, in that Rosecranz' division is not strong enough to act on the offensive, and it is not regarded judicious...

A large number of shots were fired at them, but none struck. From information received here it is believed that the armed steamship or floating steam battery, now building after the Ericcson plan, will be completed before the other two are finished, the work upon it being of less magnitude. A large surplus from the sum appropriated by Congress remains. Secretary Cameron returned this morning from his visit to the West. The good disciplinary order of our troops in their recent movements affords a subject for military encomiums.
