The Bebels Dividing their Forces. Positive information has been reccived. says a Herald despatch, that j recent occurrences have occasioned a division of the rebel army on the Po-i tomac. Reinforcements to a very larire extent have been sent to Lees-1 burg, with the expectation of a renewal of the attack on that point, and an immense force has been congregated at Norfolk, under the impression that the expedition fitting out in the Chesapeaks Bay was intended to make a demonstration there. The centre of the rebel army rests at Centreville, and has been much weakened by the withdrawal of these forces on the right and left. General Johnston is the general commanding, Beauregard commands the forces opposite the city of Wash-| ington, and Gustavus W. Smith , late ! Street commissioner of New York ; city, commands the forces at Leesj burg.

A New Question, The NeW York Tribune, of Saturday, says: We learn from an unquestionable commercial source in this city, that two English sailing vessels entered the port of Charleston, South Carolina, a few weeks ago, there being at the time no blockading ships before that port.

The transport steamer Robert Swan, from Fortress Monroe, reports that the first was getting under way on Monday, evening. She passed at midnig ht at Monday off Hog Island four steamers bound South. ¦ BggwFrom llatteras we hear that General Williams is busy in strengthening the fortifications and drilling the troops. The pretense set up by the rebels that the Monticcllo killed nobody is false. The Rev. Mr. Taylor, who is now in Washington, seeking succor for the- distressed Union men of that district , and who had the best means of knowing the truth, states that the rebels removed their dead in considerable numbers.— there is no doubt that the rebels were thoroughly chastised on that occasion.

HOW TO MAKE HAED TIMES [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 6 November 1861
HOW TO MAKE HAED TIMES A cotemporary gives a receipt for making hard times. If it don't tighten them, nothing will. We trust none of our readers will try it:— "Refuse to pay all the little bills although you have the money in your pocket—push men to pay you who have not the money although you can get along without it—if a man don't meet his ooligatious just when they become due, report that he is going to "burst"—cut down the wages of your hands before it is necessary —keep back all grain from market until the prices get to "starvation prices"—use money in speculations that you should pay your creditors with—forget that unnecessary ''retrenchments" increase hard times instead of bettering them—carry a a long face and talk of evil to come—do these and other acts like them and "hard times" will surely come, however little real cause there mav be for them."

"A MODEST MEM0BIAL." The following memorial is being circulated among the Yankee Abolitionists on : the Western Reserve: j To the President of the United States: The undersigned, citizens of Ashtabula county, believing Slavery to be the great cause of our National Calamities, ear- ; neatly desire that it may be immediately abolished by Presidential Proclamation, under the War Power. The Wheeling Press very properly Bug- , gests "that a counter memorial be circulated for signatures , praying the President to order every male signer to the above memorial to be drafted into the service of the Government, and that they be compelled to serve as sentinels every night daring hostilities. If they are so anxious to avert the calamities which they have .b»en so instrumental in producing, let -them show their devotion to their country by «erwi'ng it in the best possible manner." tjflti is a. remarkable fact that most of the bullet wounds received by oar troope iu the ambuscade at Conna...
PATBI0TS AND TBAIT0BS [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 6 November 1861
PATBI0TS AND TBAIT0BS In good old times, when we were a happay and united people, that man was regarded as a patriot who loved hia whole country, revered the Constitution, obeyed the laws and faithfully performed all his obligations as a citizen. He might support the Administration in power, or oppose it, without having his loyality to the ! Government or his patriotism questioned. Men equally good and true were to be found on both sides. But in these troublesome times a somewhat different test of patriotism is sought to be applied. Loyalty and disloyalty, patriotism and treason, are not what they were in the palmy days of the Republic. We live under a new dispensation, and words have acquired an entirely novel significance. If, for instance, a citizen who used to exercise the largest liberty in abusing the President of the United States, ridiculing J the Supreme Court, encouraging violations I of the Fugitive Slave Law, advocating the j "irrepressible conflict," and hinting t...

fum tomjwittak For the Messenger. LETTEB FB0M THE ABMY. CAMP PIERPONT, FAIRFAX CO., VA. ) Sunday, Oct. 13, 1801. } Dear Sir:—You will see by the heading of this letter, that we have moved from our old "Camp Tenally," and are nan- encamped on the "Sacred Soil," four miles beyond the "Chain Bridge"—already famous for the part it has played, in the War. We struck our Tents at Tenally on Wednesday last, and about 8 o'clock at night we moved out of our old Camp, which had become to us quite a pleasant home. Its high locality made it healthy and gave us a nice "look-out" over the hills and forests of the "Old Dominion." Our leaving was an interesting sight, and was done with a mingled feeling of regret and exulting enthusiasm: of regret, because the place had become endeared tous by pleasing associations: of joyous enthusiasm, because it would bring us nearer the boasting Chivalry, who with arrogant presumption, talk of wintering in Baltimore, Washington, and even the City of "Broth...
Resignation of Lieut. General Scott. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 6 November 1861
Resignation of Lieut. General Scott. On Thursday the President received a letter from Lieutenant General Scott, stating in substance that numerous bodily infirmities, added to grief at the unnatural and unjust rebellion of the South , has so rendered him unfit for active and responsible duty, that he is compelled to ask that he be placed on the retired list. He adds that it is with deep regret that lie withdraws himself, in these momentous tiineb, from the orders of a President who has treated him with distinguished kindness and courtesy ; whom he knows upon much personal intercourse to be patriotic, without sectional partialities or prejudices; to be hi ghly conscientious in the performance of every duty, and of unrivalled activity and perseverance. A special Cabinet meeting was convened on Friday morning, to take the subject into consideration. It was decided that Gen. Scott's request, under the circumstances of his advanced age and infirmities, would not be declined. Gen. M...
