Secession in Hanover. --On Tuesday, the 12th inst., the good people of old Hanover assembled at their Court-House and gave expression to their sentiments in the existing crisis, by the erection of a secession flag.--Amid the approving shouts of the crowd, Mr. James Lyons, of Henrico, in eloquent strains, addressed the people, hailing the flag as a happy omen of a purer and better feeling in Virginia. He was followed in brief speeches by Capt. George W. Bassett, St. George Tucker, Chastain White, Dr. E. S. Talley, John H. Taliaferro, and Dr. John B. Fontaine, who were present, breathing the right spirit and bearing decided testimony to the unanimity of the secession sentiment in Hanover. The glorious old county which was a pioneer in the cause of Freedom in 1776, has resolved to be among the first in asserting the rights of the South, and in a firm determination to maintain them.
