From the Charleston Mturcury, June 12.
The systematic attacks of 'the .writers
in the Courier's columns upon the Demo
cratic State Rights party, have latterly
presented a new feature, to wit, a war
upon their candidate fur Governor, the
Hon. J. P. Richardson. "Up Country,"
in Monday's Courier. and "A Sub-Treas
ury Nullifier" in Wednesda's, have espe
cially beset themselves to write him down.
Why? They are both opposed to the ad
'tiinisiratldn-both -to ihe State Rights
Democratic Party, and they thereibresirilie
at him whom they know to be sound to
the core, and the man of all others whose
election will give in this state triumph and
power to the principles on which the South
now rests, in the hardest and most hazard
bus battle she has ever had to fight for her
property, life and liberty. "Up-Country,"
who can hardly bc'other than a Union man,
insinuates evasively (by'ihe "he is said")
an exceedingly offensive charge, that "he
raised a Company to sustain the Procla
mation against South Carolina." It is
sultieient to say tosuch a charge, that oce
iote -unfounded could not well have been
'devised. WITite CoL..Richardson main
tained his opinidons with 'Iminly 'irmness,
it is notorious that he was ever found on the
side of conciliation. His counsels and in
fluence contributed as much as those of
any other member of his party in soothing
ingr feelihgs and allaying excitements.
"A Sub.Treasury Nullifier" comes to the
aid of his ally, and makes his nnslaught
upon the Camden proceedings and Col.
Richardson. upon another ground entirely.
W hile he gives color to the charge of "Up-.
Country." noticed allove, by pifi ou
'Co. Richardson as trie perv6na'i friend of
det.-yacksdn, 'ifot lie tinil bever sen in
1834, and of Mr. Van Buren who was e
qually a stranger until two years after

because as he admitf, although it states
what is true, that since the feconciliation
oft he Nullifiers and Unioo Party in 1834,
to ihe present day, "n M %I'hice of enrol
ument or honor has been 6onferred b.y the
Legislature on any member of the for'uaier
Union Party," yet it is eqnally true that
the General Government, of which the U
nion Party was the supporter,, appointed
no Nullifiers to office, but gave all to its
own friends. There is either great forget
fulness or want of candor in this, for while
it is true. it is not all the truth. What Ntil-.
lifier has forgotten the high g'16bnd take'n by
hi's party when Gen. Jackson was elected,
and adhered to & acted from that day-to this
-neither to solicit nor accept office while
the Tariff was unadjusted. Who has for
gotten that H amilton might have been Sec
retary of War-or Hayne Secretary of the
Navy ? Who is there that wO not re

would not haie been found in the State
Rights ranks one to ask for or take one of
these appointments. Was not one of them
at least resigned by a Nullifier? las sthe
niemorable exampl of Mr. Frost been for

rily excluded themselves from the lfederal
Bb't suppose they hail not excluded
thernselves, and while in opposition to the
Government had solicited office, when has
it been the practice of any Administ ration
to appoint its enemies to oflice? From

made all of the opposite side who got into
office swear to hold true to the State while
we g'verned. But a newv order of things
has grown up-old dillferehes, by the
blessina of Providence, have been healed,
and instead of cutting each other's throats,
wye are now united, Union men and Nulli
fiers, in a high and holy contest for the
rights and safety of our common country

flag, rallied most ofall of both the two late
parties, who still prefer principles to men,
end who have notbeen led estray or se
"A Sub-Treasury Nullifier" disclaims
being one of us-he protests in his own
language, against "smuggling the State
Rights Party intto the great rabble of
Detnocracy." What does he mean by
"the great rabble of Democracy?" The
Administration Party of course. He is
against us, yet wvrites to persuade us to
take Judge Johnson instead of Col. Rich
ai'dsttmmire prefer to take advice from our
friends-it is easy to see ihat bo 'friend
counsels so grenmt an error-he is an enemy,
who knows be and his friends will profit
by it. No gentleman is more esteemed,
honored, nay loved by many of tas than
Judge Johnson, but Col. Richardson suits
the State Righta Detmocratic Party, the
cause he is with thema heartily antl entirely
on all the points of our faith, and so known
to be both at home and through the union,
But after all what is "A Sub-Treasury
Nullifier" at, when after writing for Judge
Johnson, the balance of his piece is an ar
gument against giving power to any union|

is he fighting for a third candidate? It is
clear lie is. 4t is clear that be is only car-t

We would say a word more as to the

who lived then and took his part in public
affairs knows that it was a most perilous
time-nor will he easily forget tlb jbydjts
feelings with which the restoration of con

country. As a member of his party Col.

allusion is made to the subtject of slavery
-in those of the New, resolutions tmemno
rials and petitions on that subject, from a
dozen of their Presbyteries, gave rise to
exciting and prorracted discussions, in the
rejsrr of which Mr. Leach from Virginia
is said to have assured the Adsembly, that
"if they continued to agitate the subject
