The result of the interview had with the rebel officers is kept strictly secret. The rebel transport Sed Hover met the flag of truce about two miles from the works, bringing Mrs. Buckner Hanson, ofthe Second rebel Kentucky Regiment, from Columbus. This truce brought them to Cairo. They leave tomorrow morning for Indianapolis. It ia generally considered here that Columbus is now being evacuated. J®^While O. Jennings Wise, lay on hia death bed, suffering from his wound, but not suspecting its danger, lifting himself partially on one elbow, he turned his face toward the Federal surgeon in charge and said—"When I am sufficfently recovered , do you not think I wilt b* allowed to go home, on my parole of honor ?"

ECONOMY IN GBEENE COUNTY. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 5 March 1862
ECONOMY IN GBEENE COUNTY. An act is offered to repeal the law requiring the County Auditors' account for more than three " successive weeks. Also an act to repealthe law requiring the County to pay one hundred dollars out of the County funds to any agricultural society. Also an act requiring the County Auditors to credit the account ofthe Commissioners appointed in 1850 to erect a Poor House ; and, further, allowing the Poor Directors one dollar and a half per day for each day necessarily employed in their duties.— Washington Review. Jgp-The above acts are likely to become laws. They "draw a fine sight" on a dollar or two ; but "money is money" now-adays.

Subscribers in the West. We have a large number of subscribers ia the West to whom we sent accounts several months ago, and who have, as yet, given them no attention.

ILLUMINATION AND BEJ0I0ING. Saturday, the 22d inst;, being the anniversary of the birthday of the "Father of his Country," was commemorated, in connection with our recent victories in Kentucky and Tennessee, by our citizens generally. All joined in an illumination and in hearty rejoicings over the brilliant successes of our arms. At an early hour in the evening lights were to be seen in neariy every window on Main street, and indeed on all the streets. The enthusiasm •was unbounded, and the greatest good feeling prevailed. The citizens assembled, in front of the Court House, in the course ofthe evening, when JOHN PHELAS , Esq., was called to the Chair, and JOSEPH COOKE and JAS. S. JENNINGS appointed Secretaries. Washington's Farewell Address was ¦ then read in capital style by J. A. J. BUCHANAN, Esq., when JOSEPH G. RITCHIE and R. A. MCCONNELL, Esq., were called out, and responded in eloquent and patriotic speeches. Temple's Martial Band enlivened the occasion with a number of...

Will our friends remember this at Court?
OUB EOABS [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 5 March 1862
OUB EOABS Our country roads are in a shocking condition at present, especially the road between Wayneaburg and Rice's Landing. In many places it is almost impassible.— The state of the roads is mainly attributable, we are told, to the neglect of supervisors to repair them last Summer. If this is the case, and "legal suasion" can be brought to bear on the gentlemen, we would like to see it employed. Neglect ol this kind is utterly inexcusable, and supervisors who fail in their duty are a positive nuisance. Let us have such, in future, as will take some pride in our thoroughfares and keep them in respectable condition.

CLOSING OUT AT OLD PEIOES. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 5 March 1862
CLOSING OUT AT OLD PEIOES. WM. A. PORTER, is closing out his old stock of Dry Goods at old rates, notwithstanding recent advances in Eastern markets. He i= dealing thus liberally with his customers, with a view to emptying his shelves and replenishing his stock.— Bargain-seekers, who have the cosh to buy, or produce to barter, will find this a fine opportunity to save largely in their purchases. The "inimitable Joe," we understand, goes East next week to lay in the Spring assortments ; and as he is just as shrewd as he is polite and good-natured, we expect him to accomplish something in the Goodsbuying line worthy his reputation as a sagacious and experienced merchant.— The Ladies especially, about whom Joe is always thinking and dreaming and scolding, may look out for something decidedly rich and rare in the Dress Goods department.

Look out for stirring news from that quarter before long.
PLAYED OUT. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 5 March 1862
PLAYED OUT. We agree with the "Greensburg Democrat" that the Republican party is played out in Pennsylvania. They have not the courage to issue a call for the nomination of a Republican State ticket. Very low have the Republican leaders sunk in the popular estimation ; very weak has their organization become. And no wonder—the corruptions and plunderings of their men in office have become a stench in the nostrils of all honest people, and a straight Republican ticket would be doomed to a defeat ofthe most ignominious character. The leaders of that party know this, and they know they would richly deserve it.— They have abused the trust ofthe people; they have falsified every promise on which they carried the election ; and they have, many of them, made themselves rich by systematic plundering and swindling, while the people are taxed to death. J|®* From the Lincoln, 111. Herald, we clip the following from the "School Commissioner's Ramble" in reference to Mr. JOHN ZIMER, son ...
