Proposed armistice.

--A petition is in circulation in Philadelphia for signatures, asking Lincoln to grant an armistice until such time as he can treat with Jeff. Davis for a permanent peace. The New York Herald says--‘"If the parties who are pushing forward this petition are not downright traitors, they ought to be speedily informed that it is too late now to talk of an armistice. Action is the word."’
