Monday, Aug. 25, 1862

Cousin Temple came down on the morning cars and staid till after dinner, -- his farewell visit.  He expects to start in the morning to New England.  He has been about eight months in the service of the Government as Chaplain.  His church at Skowhegan lent him to his country six months and now urge his return to his old field of labor among them.
The eveing train came in late.  Mr. Dodge who came on it spent the night here.  He came to talk with William and arrange about the R. R. bridge at Belpre.
Today's paper has more details of the horrid Indian massacre.  It states that Dr. Williamson and Rev. Mr. Riggs, missionaries are among the slain.
Mr. Miller, the Assessor for Warren was here today.  He thinks the quota for the township is full.  About 100 have enlisted.
