Great peace meeting at Ithaca. On Saturday last one of the largest meetings was held at Ithaca, New York, that has ever assembled in that town. The Town Hall was, crowded to excess, and so large was the number of persons pressing for admission that, on motion of Mr. Chauncy Grant, they adjourned to the Park. Here they were addressed by Messrs. McDow and Halsey, who advocated peace in the strongest terms. The meeting was composed of the most respectable citizens and farmers from the neighborhood, all of whom were evidently of a very different class from those Northerners who now congregate at Washington.

He issued a proclamation urging the citizens to keep quiet and attend to their business as heretofore. He concludes thus: "Whenever it is manifest you are able to defend yourselves, maintain the authority of Government, and protect all loyal citizens. I shall withdraw the force under my command."
