BETIBEMENT OF GENERAL SOOTT [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 13 November 1861
BETIBEMENT OF GENERAL SOOTT The retirement of this g lorious old veteran from the command of the Federal forces, while it will be received with profound regret by his grateful and admiring countrymen, is at the same time opportune for his fame, if not fortunate, for our arms. Age and its increasing infirmities had long unfitted him for the active duties of the field and were rapidly disqualifying him for the labors of the cabinet, and admonished him that he should quit the cares and toils of his august position before his faculties quit him. The brave old warrior did well to heed the admonition, and to put an interval of rest and quiet between himself and the world where the din of arms is never heard. A long and brilliantly successful career had not only made him the first soldier of the Republic, but the foremost captain of Christendom, and left him nothing to deiftre and nothing to attain in the way of his profession. If anything were wanting to his patriotism, it has been ...
SPEAKER OF THE NEXT HOUSE [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 13 November 1861
SPEAKER OF THE NEXT HOUSE Col. WM. HOPKINS , of Washington county, is favorabl y spoken of by several of our cotemporaries for the Speakership of the next House. His large legislative experience and parliamentary knowled ge, not lee., than his courtesy and integrity, pre-eminently fit him for the position, and we hope to hear of hia election. Besides, no man in the State has been more consistent and zealous in his devotion to Democratic princi p les and policy, and few deserve better of the party. His selection would not only redound to the credit of the party, but to the advantage of the people, as he has this ability and di gnity to honor the station . We shall be disappointed if he is not choaen for th« place with singular unanimity.
AM [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 13 November 1861
AM There is much speculation at present among newspaper scribblers and correspondents as to whether we shall have a forward movemeqt of our Potomac forces or not, during the autumn or winter months. The opinions are as varied as the hues of the rainbow , and are predicated, in many Instances, on the most absurd and improbable conjectures. From all we can gather, we are led to believe there will be no decisive engagement in Eastern Virg inia before Spring, though a general battle might be precipitated any day by large •rmed reconnoissances of our own or the B«t>el army. J^We direct the attention of our Mfc. Morris friends to the card of S. B- PAT in to-day's paper. From our knowled ge of the J^citor , we have BO' M&(M *»Q prow S popular and B.wq & i | | tfjiciar,.

"A OABBAGE AS IS A CABBAGE.' [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 13 November 1861
"A OABBAGE AS IS A CABBAGE.' We are" indebted to our good-natured and excellent friend, Recorder TEMPLE, for a Cabbage about the size and weight of neig hbor COOKS of the "Republican," to whose shoulders we would cheerfully fit it ifitaplace had not already been supplied by a mammoth pump kin one of his readers was considerate enoug h to send him the other day. If "old Joe" is at all curious, however, as to "where" the Cabbage will go or "whaf'we shall do with it, he can drop in on us at meal-time once a day for a month to come and he will ascertain its destination.. Such a Cabbage as this would be good enough food for the gods.

ASTOUNDING FRAUDS IN FEE MONT'S DEPARTMENT! [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 13 November 1861
ASTOUNDING FRAUDS IN FEE MONT'S DEPARTMENT! The Evening Chronicle of Tuesday last seys: "The Cincinnati Enquirer of Sunday contained an abstract of the report of the Congressional Committee of Investi gation, on the frauds of the AVestern Department. The terms of this abstract are so explicit and its tones so authoritative as to carry the conviction that it is, in the main, accurate and authentic. The individual who appears here most deeply implicated is Brigadier General McKinstry. The record is positively frig htful and sickening. It would appear absolutely incredible that this nation, or that the human race could possess such greedy and shameless robbers ; men who would sell their own God-forsaken souls, or batten on their country' s ruin, for a little filthy lucre. If our rulers are too tender to shoot or hang up these heartless speculators in the most summary method, after the manner of Wellington or Napoleon, or if Congress will not pass the most strin gent laws agains...
DIVISION O F SE N TIMENT AT TEE NORTH. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 13 November 1861
DIVISION O F SE N TIMENT AT TEE NORTH. The Rochester (N. Y.) Union, an able and earnest advocate of a vigorous prosecution of the War, thus "takes off" the designing demagogues who labor assiduously to create the impression that there are great and dangerous differences of op inion at the North as to the propriety of carrying on the present struggle until Rebellion is effectually crushed out:— "The Republican press, on the other hand, violate truth and decency for the purpose of producing the false impression that there is a powerful party at the North numbering hundreds of thousands of ablebodied men whose every sympathy is on the side of the rebel cause. If by garbling or otherwise perverting a speech or newspaper paragrap h they can so distort its meaning as to make it appear to give aid and comfort to the enemy, while the known intent of the author was the exactly opposite, they manifest as much alacrity in the shameless business as if they were thus adding a regiment to t...
DIRECT TAXATION [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 13 November 1861
DIRECT TAXATION It is now authoritatively announced that the receipts of the customs for the present year will not amount to more than twenty million dollars, ten million less than even Secreatary Chase's estimate. When the Morrill tariff was first enacted it was claimed that the receipts under it would reach sixty millions, but the circumstances of the country hare .so changed since then that the estimates of that period are valueless now. It is evident from this state of things that we are about entering upon a new era in the financial history of the country.— Hereafter direct taxation is inevitable, as custom duties will be entirely inadequate to the support of the Government and the payment of the enormous debts we are contracting. The forei gn trade of the country will, in any event,be much less for several years to come than it has been in the past, and the deficit in our revenues in consequence must be provided for in some other way. This matter will assume great import...

PITTSBURGH BUSINESS NOTICES HOWE'S S EWING M ACHINE . —Our old and esteemed friend, W. B. LASSCELL, Esq., No. 26 Fifth street, is the Pittsburgh Agent for the sale of this admirable Machine, and we are g lad to know is doing a brisk business, notwithstanding the " war" and the state of the country. The secret of his success, however, is to be found in the unrivalled excellence of the Howe Machine, which has recentl y been perfected by its distinguished invention, and is in increased demand for famil y use. We know of no machine which will atall compare with it for general purposes, and we would not be without for it three times its cost. Our readers in Greene and adjoining counties who may requre this almost indispensible requisite to every wellordered household should call on Mr. LASSCELL, who is not onl y a courteous gentleman, but a truthful and honorable dealer, and will convince the most skeptical of the superior merits of the Howe invention. We shall have more to say abo...

Latest from the Fleet [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 13 November 1861
Latest from the Fleet Vessels Lost in the Gale—The Crews Prison ere—Bombardment of Port Boyal. F ORTRESS M ONROE, November 7.—The steamer Spaulding left for Hatteras Inlet last evening with a cargo of commissary stores. It is more than probable that some of the trrops will return in her. It is understood at Old Point that Hatteras Inlet is a p lace of too much importance to abandon. Should the 20th Indiana reg iment return, its p lace will be immediatel y supp lied by a larger force. By a flag of truce just from Norfolk, we have news of the fleet, but it is provokingly meagre. The only person who came down was bound by parole to reveal no particulars. The steamer Union, with a cargo of horses and stores, and another transport, whose name is not g iven, were lost during the gale. One at Kill Devil Shoal and the other on Rogue's Beach, on the coast of North Carolina. The crews of both vessels, seventy-three in number, are now prisoners at Raleig h, North Carolina. It is not know...
