Union meeting in Philadelphia. Philadelphia, Dec. 13. --The grand Union meeting called by the Mayor, assembled to-day in Independence Square. Bishop Potter, of Pa., opened the proceedings with prayer. Mayor Henry presided, assisted by a large number of Vice Presidents and Secretaries, including some of the most wealthy and influential citizens. Resolutions were read and adopted proclaiming attachment to, and reverence for, the Constitution, and an earnest and enduring l

The city to-day was gay with flags, and one of them flying from one of the hotels bore the motto, "concession before secession."
The meeting was immense, and might be numbered by tens of thousands.
Mayor Henry, in his remarks, said we must restore harmony to the public sentiment, go back to the better days of the Republic, frown down misplaced appeals of the pulpit and press, and preserve the Union at all hazards.
