The presentation of a sword to General McClellan b y a Committee of the Philadelphia Council, was the event -of Washington on Saturday ni g ht. The ceremony took p lace at the General's house, where an elegant collation was provided. About fifty gentlemen , including Secretary Welles, was present.

"Still Sticks To It. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 13 November 1861
"Still Sticks To It. There is no doubt," says a Washington dispatch to the Cincinnati Commercial, that the order superceding' Fremcmt b y Hunter, has gone West;"as telegraphed.— Dispatches from Washington for General Hunter, which would not have been sent to a subordinate, 1 understand, passed through St. Louis, on Sunday. Fremont may, therefore, have already ceased to command the Western Department.— Adjutant General Thomas' report could not probably have . been published until Fremont's removal was a fact accomplished, or his resignation received. It is known that a resignation of a commander of a Department arrived on Thursday, which was unsigned.
From Missouri. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 13 November 1861
From Missouri. SPRINGFIELD, NOV. 4.—Our scouts bring us this morning definite information that Price has left Sarcoxie and has moved via Neosho towards Casevillc. Barry county. Op inions differ as to whether he will march North of that point on Springfield or continue his retreat into Arkansas. A body of rebel cavalry was seen twenty-five miles south of here last night by a reconnoitering party. Gens. Pope and McKinstry should be here to-day. Gen. Hunter is on the Pomme de Terre, ten miles south of the Osage, waiting for rations.
The Fleet Arrived at Bull's Bay—Charleston to be Attacked. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 13 November 1861
The Fleet Arrived at Bull's Bay—Charleston to be Attacked. It will be seen b y important despatches direct from Old Point , that the great Naval Expedition has probably landed on the coast of South Carolina, preparatory, we have now no doubt whatever , to an attack on Charleston. This is a very bold and perilous undertaking, and to be at all successful the attack would have apparently to be made almost immediately. Bull's Bay. or the harbor where our fleet are now riding at anchor, and on whose coast our troops are safely landed, is about twentyfive miles North of Charleston harbor, and probably about thirty miles from Charleston overland. It lies between Bull's Island and Raccoon Key, and the bar at its mouth has at low water full two fathoms , or twelve feet. To the east and north stretches a large swam]) with the significant name of Hell Hole. The land south of this swamp, and between our army and Charleston is level with but few natu ral defences for the enemy to conceal...
The Fremont Body Guard. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 13 November 1861
The Fremont Body Guard. W as composed, says the St. Loui Republican, of men just fit for ant likel y to engage in such a combat a that which has been announced.— Ori g inally this Body Guard was com posed of three hundred p icked men and better ones never went into * battle. Commanded by a HungaJ rian who has seen much service, one compan}7 of a hundred was composed! almost entirely of Kentuckians, and] the others made up of Missouriansi German naturalized citizens anfl others. They were, as we have said7 p icked men. The horses—blooded bays—were in keeping with the men. But their armament, if we may so speak, was better still. Each man had with him two of Colt's six barrel navy revolvers, one five barrel rifle and a sabre They, could shoot these seventeen times without stopping to load, and then resort to the sabre to finish up their work. Is it surprising that, thus armed , they created a panic among the badl yarmed troops opposed to them , and that a rout ensued ?

The General Hospital Burned Down. j [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 13 November 1861
The General Hospital Burned Down. j v\ ASHINGTON , November 4.—At' one o'clock this morning a fire broke out in the lower story of the general Hospital, on Judiciary Square, ori ginating from a furnace. The com- j bustible parts of the main building and of the ri g ht wing, together with the l-oofs , were destroyed. When the flames were first discovered hurried preparations were made for tha removal of the sick and wounded soldiers, about fifty in number. This was effected in good order and with safety to the patients , who are now comfortabl y cared for in the nei g hboring City Hall and other buildings in the immediate vicinity. Most of the chamber furniture was saved.— The antiquated and insufficient city i fire apparatus prevented the entire destruction of the Hospital. The employment of a steam apparatus h^ ieeeitte a public necessity. Fortonatel y thirty of the patients were tta Thursday removed to Annapolis.
The Expedition Against Jeff. Thompson. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 13 November 1861
The Expedition Against Jeff. Thompson. Major Wood of the First Indiana Cavalry, is in Indianopolis from Missouri. He says that Major Gavitt had started home, and that after he had ridden five miles, heard that an attack on Jeff Thompson had been determined upon. Whereupon he immediatel y returned to the regiment arid was shot in an hour afterward. The Major says they followed the rebels about ei ght miles , but could not overtake them. The day following, they buried three hundred and sixteen rebels. Most of them we' re shot in the head or cut with sabres. They also took about twenty wounded prisoners, who are now in the hospitals at Pilot Knob. Col. Baker rode at the head of his regiment in advance of Maj. Gavitt.— The engagement lasted about four hours. There were five Colonels but no Brigadier General on the field, each Colonel fought on his own hook. Had the attack been properly managed, the whole rebel force could have been captured.
The Opposing Forces in Missouri. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 13 November 1861
The Opposing Forces in Missouri. A Kolla correspondent of the Philadelphia Bulletin writes as follows on October 2s,th :—A member of my company arrived yesterday direct from the camp i>f General Fremont. He reports that there are now at that point—Bolivar—about thirty-seven thousand men, all well armed and in good condition. Price and Mc-Culloch have concentrated their forces at Carthage, where they will have to make a stand, as their retreat is now cut off; Siege), Totten and Sturgi's being South of Springfield, Lane and Montgomery to the West of it, and General Hunter to the Northeast oftlieni, the aggregate of the Union troops being about 130,000 effective men ; while to oppose this vast force there are but from 35,000 to 50,000, the rebels say 90,000. At all events they are poorly armed, about half starved and miserably clothed. We now have between seventy and eighty prisoners working for the public good on fortifications. They were captured at Linn creek, and bro...
Forty-four Rebels Captured. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 13 November 1861
Forty-four Rebels Captured. Captain Foote sends the following official dispatch, dated St. Louis, Oct. 30, to the Secretary of the Navy:— Sir—The Conestoga, Lieut, Com- j manding Phelps, has again been up the Tennessee river as far as Etldysville, sixty two miles distant from Paducah. with three companies of the Illinois regiment, under command of Major Phillips , and conjointly they have had a handsome and successful skirmish, in which the rebels broke and fled in every direction, leaving seven dead on the field.

Iaportant About the Expedition. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 13 November 1861
Iaportant About the Expedition. . We are yet without any further evidence ?hah the assertions of the officers of the Monticello, erroneously written Savannah in an article yesterday, that the naval expedition has gone into Bull Bay, with the ulterior intention of attacking Charleston. Indeed, we believe and hope that . it has not been sent there, since we see' that it was expected in the South to land oh the Carolina coast, and that preparations were being made to receive it, and since we have reason to believe that the expedition is by no means so powerful as it has been represented. A Richmond paper of late date says: 'The Peninsular reinforcements ordered to General Magruder have been countermanded, it being now known that ike naval expedition is designed to operate on the Carolina coast." Again, the Washington Republican of Monday savs:—"We have good reasons for believing that the accounts in the New York papers greatly exaggerated the magnitude of the expedition which l...
Federal Losses at Leesburg:. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 13 November 1861
Federal Losses at Leesburg:. Col. llink's report of the Leesburg battle, just published, creates some excitement in Washington. His estimate of our loss, over nine hundred men. is greater than the War Department has acknowledged at any time, but officers who were engaged in the battle, and understood all the facts, assert that Col. llink's estimate is under rather than over the mark. It also appears that the troops under Col. Baker were thrown into a temporary panic b y the death ot their leader and the ambush into which they were led, and retreated preci p itatel y towards the river.— This, says the Post's correspondent, agrees perfectl y with facts long ago in the hands of newspaper men. but which were withheld from publication for fear that the government would complain. So far as the conduct of the government is concerned in the temporary suppression of the facts of the affair, it seems that at the very outset the President and Cabinet and our leading military men were ful...
