LOCAL MATTERS. Shtursdaq's editiont. Our Cenfedersle Veteraas. There was a meeting last night of the Confederate Veterans, mainly for the object of re-organizing the Association, with a view of establishing it on a firm er basis. Heretofore the members have been admitted without any initiation fee; neither have they been required to pay dues or attend meetings. In consequence, the Association has been unable to accomplish any other result than to assemble, by the free will of its members, at two or three meetings or reunions, and on the occasion of the visit of the Army of Tennessee to this city. No organization can be ftinud that will be nearer to the hearts of our peo ple, than one composed of our veterans, some of whom fought on almost every battlefield, from (lettysburg to Mans lield.
