THE WAR NEWS.
All quiet at Petersburg. The enemy throw an occasional shell into the town without any special object that can be divined.
The enemy are reported to be massing near the Davis house, on the Weldon road, two miles south of the city. It is supposed by some they meditate an attack at this point. This is, however, all speculation.1
