fJnion Meeting at Jefferson. For the Messenger. JEFFERSON, August ^Olh, '61. Messrs. Editors:—We had a Union meets ing here on last Saturday, which was addressed by General HOWELL, J. VEECH, Esq., and J. LINDSEV, Esq. Howell and Lindsey were truly patriotic. 1 think I never listened to more eloquent and patriotic speeches in my life than were delivered by those gentlemen, t wish I could say as much of the effort of of Mr. Veech; but I cannot. He gave us the "irrepressible conflict doctrine" in all its glory and pristine beauty. He told us that there existed between the North and the South of our country, a God-created antagonism, and that one or the other must succumb.— If this be true, how can we ever fraternize? what is the use of Union meetings ! Why continue this war 1 It is righting against God's decrees. But, sirs, I do not believe the docuine. I think Mr. Veech is deeply imbued-with abolitionism, and cannot retrain from showing the cloven foot ot that political heresy...

Rumor with her thousand tongues was busy, and, as usual, her versions were as numerous and as different almost as her channels of communication. In otio thing only was there consistency. There was an e^emy near lo be met—the numbers varying from four hundred to twelve and even fifteen.— Some five, hundred nuprovised soldiers passed here before daylight on Monday morning, picked up by Gov. Pierpoint from the citizens of Wheeling, in the midst of excitement, when the telegraph on Sunday night gave them the alarm of danger. During the day of Monday il was reported here that Col. Grossman, before the arrival of the W...

C^ MP OP TIIE 8TH REG'T, J For ili« Messenffer. NEAR WASHINGTON, Aug. 28,1861. j Dear Sir .-—Since I last wrote to you, nothing ofa very important or startling nature has occurred. The work of preparation for war, is going on vigorously—each day making it more and more active. Our Regiment is encamped upon an elevated piece of ground, upon which hundreds ot hardy, sun-browned soldiers sre daily al work with Axe, Pick and Spade, digging trenches, and throwing up formidable' breast-works. It is said, some forty or fifty Cannon, will be planted behind them, and for miles around the country can be raked with deadly missiles. S iould the Rebels attempt an advance upon the City ^ in this direction, they will most assuredly meet with a stern resistance. I believe nearly all the Penna. Reserves, are encamped here, besides which are the 15th, 7th and 2nd Mass. Regiments. Gen. McCall is bringing his Brigade under the most perfect discipline, and when on Grand Review, Before the Presid...

Special dispatches from Louisville, Ky., were received by our correspondent in A'ashingion city yesterday, con/inning the news. Intelligence lias reached Louisville from Fortress Monroe that Davis was dead, and that the rebel flags in that vicinity had been flying at half mast for ihe past two or three days.— Parlies who arrived'from Richmond state that the probability of bis speedy demise was canvassed freely in that city on Sat« urday, and we learn by way of Nashville that the Rebel Congress, which had adjourned on that night in consequence of ihe precarious condition of Mr. Davis, has since been called together by Mr. Stephens, the Vice President. All these facts tend strongly to confirm the rumor of t...

We have intelligence to-day that the notorious pirate Sumter has entered iho Gulf in distress without coal, credit, or anything, and will soon be captured by tho U. S. vessels which are after her.
