The Nar:ion Meeting in fRamburg.
We publi to-day, the proceedings of the
tate Harrison meeting. which assembled
at Hnmmtrg. We would have done so
befoie had our limits permitted. Though
we discent entirely, from the views of the
meeting, far he it from u to set the sealof
.condeination upon the respectable persons
who composed it, because they have given
en independent, and doubtless, at honest
expression of their opinions on the great
political questions of the day. They have
a right to declare their political preferences,
different as they may be, front those of the
mass of their fellew citizens.
For the benefit of our readers at a dis
tance, we beg leave to state, that the Har
rison meeting at Hamburg, respectable as
it was, did not represent the opinions of

John P. Richardson and the Camden
meeting.-There are many people who are
niot Mr. Richardlson's enemies, even in n'
political sense, nor willing to detract from
b is good qualities, that never will be re
conedled to the way ii which he is brought
out for- Governor. .There is a radical vice
in'pjsming off even a good thing by a false
name. Now, Mr. Richardson is palmed
off upon the Union party as their candi
date, and to the Nullifiers as their ward or
protege. He is neither one nor the other.
The Union party do ntot want him. If
they had had a choice, it would have been
very strange in them to overlook Chatn.
D. Johnson, for one who is certainly neith
er tn older nor a better soldier. We all
krnow who nominated Mr. R.-a small
clique-very respectable, good men-but
still a small set-of Nullifiers. But who
accepted him in the name of the Union
party? it is easy to say who did not.
It would be easy to run over the names
. of the Union men at Columbia last winter,
& when we had got through with those that
had nothing to do with this self constit'i
ted.. marinating committee, every one
would think that the whole party was
named already. Except the Senator from
Christ Church, and one, or perhaps t wo,
of the younger portion of the house, no
body' has been heard of that acknowledges
thiis work. But it is incontestible that
some lenders of the Union party prefer
Judge Johnson to any other person, for
the next Governor. H ow do the Camden
people, then, undertake to proclaim Mr.
Richardson as the candidate of the .
nion party, who have a candidate of their
own in the Gield, or the choice of the Jul.

From the Camden Journal.
Ma. E Dirtr;-In the CharlestonC*uo
rier of the $Ist May is to be seen a com
munication over thesignature of "A Uni
on man," who, it seems, is very much
nettled with the late meeting here, recom
mnending Col. J. P. Richardson for Gover
nor. He speaks of Col. R. as having been
palmed offon the Union Party as their
candidate, and upon the Nullifiers as their
warwsrd protege. If such is the case, t
is roi attributable to his friends of both
part-ies lately convened at this place for
the purpose of recommending him to the
State as a suitable person for its suffrages,
combining as he does. a high moral char
aerer, wth what we believe to be the po
litical doctrine of the State at this time.
It is an old saying, that what is every bo
dy's business is no one's-nand consequen't.
ly, it could not 6e expected, that at this
time, prricularly when olh party divi

like Lazarus, should he resusfr'tzd Tor

indefatigable supporter. So far, no ohjec

They are the tverlookers and the lookers

are not all the Judge's trie friends who
have dragged him before the people. It
is a "small cliqie-very respectable, good
