More Rebel Batteries on the Potomac. WASHINGTON, October 22.—The Harriet Lane arrived up from In- j dian Head last nig ht. She reports ' that new batteries have been erected at Matthias Point. The Freeborn and Island Belle , while making a jreconnoisance at that point yesterday, threw some shot into the woods, and ; the fire was returned by some new batteries of ei ghteen heavy guns.— Immediately thereupon the woods and underbrush were cleared away, exposing the batteries to view. Vessels in passing thin point are obliged to hug the Virginia shore, and are exposed to fire for a distance of some four or five miles in doubling it. No vessel passed down the river last night, and it is not known that any came up. The river men report that the rebels have a number of seine boats and long boats concealed in the creeks and inlets between Acquia creek and Oceoquan bay. and that thej* are busy in building launches , apparently with a view cither to effect a crossing into Maryland, or...

The Aflair at Edward's Ferry-Two Hundred Hors Du Combat—General Bank's Armv in Virginia. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 30 October 1861

The Aflair at Edward's Ferry-Two Hundred Hors Du Combat—General Bank's Armv in Virginia. WASHINGTON , October 23.—The Washington '-Star" says the object of the movement in crossing the river, by Gen. Stone, was to secure the command of the Virginia shore that his division and that of Gen. Banks' could be safely transported to the soil of Virginia. After crossing his advance he sent out Colonel Baker , with portions of three regiments , his own, the Massachusetts Fifteenth, and the New York Tammany Regiment, numbering in all about eighteen hundred men , forming his right wing to reconnoitre in force, in the direction of Leesburg. Both his wings, his ri g ht and left, were attacked as early as t» a. m.. but repulsed the enemy wherever he appeared. At about 5 p. m., the right wing found itself confronted by near 4000 of the enemy, under Gen. Evans, with artillery. Evans attacked Baker's command in front I and on both flanks. Baker gallantl y j essayed a charge, in making which ...

Reported Victory over Zollicoffer. A courier who arrived from Camp Dick Robinson , reports a fight, on Monday last, between Gen. Zollicoffer of Tenn., with six or seven thousand men, and Col.

. _ , The Battle on Santa Rosa Island, [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 30 October 1861

. _ , The Battle on Santa Rosa Island, A late Southern paper says that "the reports from Pensacola in relation to the attack on Santa Rosa Island are of a conflicting character, ! and from what they are enabled to learn, they think they have been defeated, with a heavy loss, but think in the main they have gained a vie-'. tory. The War Department accounts ; for their heavy loss of men by the great anxiety to whip the Yankees." , From these intimations we judge the ; rebels are badly whipped, and as they : have never acknowled ged a defeat I but in this manner, it is safe to say j they were rather roughly handled.

Late—Another Skirmish , [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 30 October 1861

Late—Another Skirmish , EDWARDS' FERRY , Oct. 22—During" a skirmish last evening, nearly opposite this point, Gen. Lander received a painful flesh wound in his right leg. The ball has been extracted, and no danger to life or limb is apprehended. Our pickets now extend a mile inland from Edward's Ferry, and about the same distance up Goose Creekr occupying the bridge. The enemy have also extended their p ickets one and a half miles up the river towards Conrad's Ferry. The enemy evidently selected our officers for the marks of their riflemen. (Goose Creek, be it remembered, is on the Virginia side of the Potomac, and the bridge over it is on the Leesbung turnpike.) 8@rTbc total amount of -Peters Pence" paid into the Papal treasury up to the present date is said to be £2 , 280,000.

GOOD NEWS TOR THE FAEMEEBEEADSTUPF FOE EUEOPE. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 30 October 1861

GOOD NEWS TOR THE FAEMEEBEEADSTUPF FOE EUEOPE. There is a great deficiency in crops in France, and a similar lack in Belg ium, Holland and Spain, though to a smaller extent; and American farmers are likely to have an excellent market for their surplus Grain. Thirty-five ships are now loading with wheat at New York for Havre, and it is estimated that it will require an expenditure of $200,000,000 on the part of the French to supply themselves with foreign breadstuffs the present Winter. Already the shipments from New York has amounted to over 2,000,000 bushels of wheat, 100,000 barrels of flour, and 65,000 bushels of corn. "The deficiency of the French wheat crop, to be made up in a great measure from this country, is variously estimated at from 60,-000,000 to 80,000,000 bushels. This we probably cannot furnish; but we can furnish Indian Corn in altnostany quantity, and as France has made a beginning with that grain, its great cheapness will probably bring it into general use i...

JOHN 0. BfiEOIINfilDGE A BAB EXAMPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 30 October 1861

JOHN 0. BfiEOIINfilDGE A BAB EXAMPLE. The treason of this man has at last taken form, and shape, and direction. He has for months past been the bold and unblushing apologist of the Rebellion, and only awaited opportunity ;to consummate his treason. Throwing himself into the arms of his Southern confederates, he will share their fate and infamy, and forfeit forever the high opinion entertained of his character and patriotism by hosts of too partial friends and admirers. Possessing, as all concede he does, great and commanding talents, a dignified and seductive address, and all the essentials of of successful statesmanship, no man in the country of his years had enjoyed a larger degree of public favor or had before him a more brilliant and promising future. In the broad and p lain path of public duty in a crisis like this, there was before Mr. BRECKINRIDGE a rich harvest of honors and usefulness. Owing all he was as a citizen and statesman to the liberal and fostering genius of ...

ULTEA ABOLITIONISM AND NEGE0 EMANCIPATION. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 30 October 1861

ULTEA ABOLITIONISM AND NEGE0 EMANCIPATION. There is a strong disposition evinced at present by Northern Abolitionists to divert the War from its original purpose of sustaining and perpetuating the Government, and convert it into a vast scheme of negro emancipation. The New York Tribune, in a late article "announced its' anxiety for several Bull Run disasters, provided they would have the effect of uniting the Northern people in favor of immediate •mancipation." This is the language of other kindred prints, and of most politicians of the "Tribune" ilk, and may be received as an indication and foreshadowing of the fanatical aims of ultra Abolitionists. That their purposes will be defeated, however, we have every reason to believe, unless the Administration is overawed by their threats and bravado, and of this we indul ge no apprehensions. The objects of the war were very clearly set forth in the President's Message and in the Resolutions of Congress at the extra session, and s...
