Ron!Aec BENSON : In view of the impor
tance of our Congressional contest,it has been
deemed necessary that Hon. George LAndon
should remain in this district and the County
Committee have consequently conscripted him
and made appointments for meetings at which
he is to speak.

MASS • .MEETINGS.
The first meeting of the loyal men of Pot
ter was held on last ''ri.dity afternoon in the
groUnds of the Lewisville Academy, and not
withstanding the inauspicious appearance of
the weather, in the morning, there was a
large and enthusiastic assemblage of the peo
ple by the hour of one. Delegations came in
from all parts of the. county and along the
'borders Of New York [wham by-the-way;
they say Father Abraham will receive a
larger vote than he did yfpppur years ago].
It was thought there were er Been huh
tred people present.
- The meeting ; was organized by appointing
Hon. A. G. OLMSTED to the Chair, and Dnick
Whipple, C. S. tones, Israel Dodge, Harry
Lent and G. U. .01cti'ttea, Vicapresidents, and
M. W. AcAlarney, Secretary.
The Chairman, after making a few remarks,
I introduced Gov. Pierpont, of Western Virgin
• ia, :who entertained his 'audience two hours
with an argumentative speech, 'giving-a full
view of the progress of Secession as seen by
l a Southern Unionist. He said in relation to
Southern rights, which the North were char
ged with nbusing, that the cry was all bosh,
that even"Toombs lad said that his constitut
lents_ had never heard of the Liberty Hills,
labout which politicians talked so much ; that
the North bad never interfered with any rights
which the South claimed, that he knew any
thing about; that South Carolina and the
rabid leaders all through the South had de
termined that some what might, they would
bare a separate Government"; that the people
of Virginia sent to the Convention of that
State 110 Unionists 10
,40 Secessionists, and
tlytt Convention was forced to carry the
State out of the Union by the influence
of the mob, by threats, by anonymons
letters, by ropes left banging to their lamp- i
posts at night,'iudicating .to them the fate 1
that awaited them if they did not secede; 1
mat Secession speeches were made from the
hotel steps, in the bar-rooms,presses were gag
! ged, and all the hellish influences that fiends
could imagine were brought to bear. He said
that the leaders had declared at that early
day that if a Wank sheet of paper Were given
them they would not write any terms up - on,
it which would _keep them in the .llnion.
"But," said he, Fall these,induences will fail.
God never .intendciF that the United States
should be two countries, .he had laid the
tuouptains tne wrong way for any such pur
pose." His speech abounded in the plainest
4-omeuts,,eanclusive as eternal truth,,that
the Tresidep..t was not to - blame foe - the ,war
that bad ,a cause prior to his election, that
it was besot:. - upon an t irrepresiible conflict,
which was now being fought Out, and the
issue would prove a whole Union. a Free
Government, an advanced civiliatien, and a
country upon which God'A•blessing would
Col. Montgomery, of Vicksburg, Miss., was
then introduced. He Was a slave-holder,
editor of the Vicksburg !Whig when the war
broke out,'but was forcOd to leave by'cause of
his tinien Sentiments. He spoke for almost
j an hour. and his graphic description of the
theauties of the institution, his anecdotes of
negi-o life, his personal 'experiences as to the
pleasures, profits and advancements peculiar
; to the institution were perfectly side-splitting.
i Ee said the chivalry of the South put him in
mind of a certain snake which carried his
tail very high ; one day the tail thought the
head was not traveling fast enough to snit it
!and pr020.;e,1,t0 set up for itself, it gave a
great leap, jerked the head after it against a
•j.stone, smashed it, and "expired in any but
, graceful contortions. So it would be with
the leaders .•ir. the South_; they had .always
!felt that the slaves wero the head of the conn
i;try, but the,tail had got;extrn-chivalrous, and
; was jnmping along and ifwould soon strike
' it stone and expire, and the. Government would
'be purified of ,its vileness. He ridiculed the
idea of interference with "Southern rights,"
said be hod never head of it except in speech
, es, that if his slave escaped to the North, and
`he called upon a citizen of tie North to assist
lin his rescue, he was compelled by law to do
so, but that if a horse escaped from a 'citizen
of the North to the South and you asked a
citizen there to assist in his capture he could
tell you to "go to the d--l." He said.the
' South had forced humiliating measures noon
the North, time after time,; that they had al
ways ruled, but that that 170.5 not sufficient
for the rebel !leaders, The people admitted
the truth of the Colonel's remarks and come
of the Copperheads in the crowd were made •
Ito hang their heads by the sarcasm andson
tempt with ;which he spoke of their peace
propositiens. He said that the South had
Slavery before they seceded and asked who
was Soul e,nough to believe ..they would-come
back for what they had before they went to
war. The meeting closed with cheers ,for our
.Generals, Army, Navy and Candidates.
We were not able to be present but at the
close of the Oswayo Meeting and therefore
have no detailed report to make. It was very
successful both in numbers and feeling. Mr.
Phillips was President, and the meeting was
ably addressed by A. N. Cole, Esq., of Wells
ville, Irons, A. G. Olmsted and Isaac Benson.

afternoon., was organlzed by the appointment
of the following .officers r President, HoN.

The firs; speaker was N. Cole, Ess., who
talked to the people for almost two hour's, and
was Itstened to with the greatest attention.

acter apd,object; of,tte 442p5. who we,re, cry
ing so lustily for little IkciClejlan and flehon•

his knowledge of the workings of thiS faction,
obtained by a residence in New York. city,
peculiarly fitted hint for the task of laying
open to the eyes of honest men the designs of
these renegmles to American Liberty and
National Unity. Mr. Cole is one of tlte_origi l 7
nal 'lights of Freedom, and we hopei to have
the pleasure of again meeting with him.
Hon.A. G. OLMiTED, then followed in a short,
Uoncise and pertinent speech. He gave a glance
at the speech of Alex. H. Stephens, Vice Pres-
ident of the Rebel Confederacy, made before
the war, in r,-hiCh he stated that the SPath
had no cause foi secession, and if they did
secede it would surely result in Universal
emancipation and a whole Free Union. He
read extratts from Benedict Arnold'siAddresi
to the American people daring the ....Revolu
tionary War and oompared it with the speechz;
es of the copperhead party of to-day, and
their resemblance was so greet. as "to strike
many with wonder.
The closing speech by HoN. Iss.at - Bassos
was a good it At the , Cops which they ap
peared to appreciate very highly, air. Benson
does hotfear to "treat upon the toes" of any
man or.factiou when he believes i them to be

seeks to throw the ball of ;anarchy into the
Korth and ruin forever the hopes of die Amer

he was compelled, ranch to the disappoint

Altogether .the speeches were honest, fair,
able, and conv,incing, and the people returned

The portraits .and banners were painted by
Mr. Cyrenus Jones, a fine artist and a good

manner in which he executed his taXit. The
