The Northwest.

--The Parkersburg News, of Thursday last, says:

General Jackson made a speech in this place yesterday. His position was conservative in the highest degree, throwing the onus of war on Mr. Lincoln, counseling union and peace among ourselves, and asserting the general principle that the coercion of the South was impossible and the war unholy; that if the people were determined not to remain under our former Government, it was folly to talk of compelling them to do so; and that if we could not live in peace we must separate. He also detailed the condition of affairs at Richmond. and gave a history of the doings in Convention.
