To TH i. HON. JOHN P. RLICHARDSON:
' The manner. in which the discusqion ol
your conduct and opinions has been coni
ducted heretofoje, has been neither just to
yourself nor sttifactory to the public. The
habitualintervention of third persons be
tween a candidate and the people, offi
ciously assuming to be his interpreters,
subject him to distrust, either of not hav
ing opinions of his own, or of being reluc
tant to express them, and to give his on u
reasons for his conduct. As to you, I reel
sure such impressions would be unjust.
While your independence would revolt at
the bare suspicion of being "gagged and
guarded" through a canvass, your pure
and perfect democracy would incline you
to a direct communication with your fel
low citizens. When it is insinuated by
one writter that you was connected with
the military organization of the Union
party in 1834, and charged by another
that the proclamation was your standard
ofcon..titutional orthodoxy, I know that you
would prefer to answer for yourself. In
deed, in repelling charges of so grave a
nature, the interference of friends would
but increase the suspicion of their truth;
and it is to protect you from unfounded
inferences resulting from this source, that,
in the exercise of an undoubted right, I
approach you by direct inquiry.
Having been a member of the Jackson
party throtghout the whole of the adninis
tration of the late President. your approv
al of the doctrines and tneasures of that
administration will, of course, be taken for
granted, unless denied by you in your own
iame. The leadiug feature of President
Jackson's administration was his contro
very % ith your own State, and the doc
trinfs through which he sought to define
his position in that controversy, are set
thow in his Proclamation of the 10th Dec.
M.32. The following is a summary ofihe
,orvuld taken by that paper, to-wit: That
;p'wer assumed by one State to arrest
Z unconstitutional act of Congress, "is
incm:patible with the existence of the
Uiti, contradicted expressly by the let
tO cree Constitution, utauthorized by its
spirit, inconsistent with every principle on
w% hich it was founded, and destructive of
the great object for which it was formed."
That the ordinance, by which a conven
tion of the people of South Carolina de
clared the protecting tarif's to be null and
void, was a disorganizing edict," framed by
those whose objects were "disuniou," only
to be carried into efict through a "forci
ble opposition" to the "execution of the
laws," which opposition would be "trea
son." That it prescribed "a course ofeon
duct in direct violation of their duty as cit
izensof the United States, contrary to the
laws of their country, subversive of its
constitution, and havingfor its object the
destruction oJ the Union." That '-strict
duty required of the President, nothing
miiore (in reference to South Carolina)than
the exercise of those powters with which
he was then, or might afterwards be in
vested, for preserving the peace of the
Union, and for the execution of the laws."
That the several States, through the adop
tion of the constitution hecatme --one peo.
ple," the people of a "single nation." in
the government of which, the "people of
the States are collectively represeted,"
and the "unity' of whose "political char
acter" "commenced in its (the govern
inent's) very existence, the States "form
ing one nation," of which they became
"parts," and to which the allegiance of
the colonists "was transferred in the frst
instance," and due in the capacity of "A
merican citizens." And, finally, that the
sovereignty of the States was ceded by
giving to the Goverument the powver to
punish 'treason against the United States.'
Such were the doctrines avowed hvy the
hiead of your party, and sustained corntemt
poraneously by federal armament, and do
mestic military organi::ation, andl placed
as you have been before the people of So'uth
Cairolina, asone of his followers, they are
etitled to know whether suich principles
or measures, either now or ini times piast,
have been sustained by your part icipation,.
or met your approval?
This brings us down to 1832 only, the
date of the proclamation. The p~eriod,.
however, at which you are most conspic
uously put forth as a pacificator, wvas in
1834, two years afterwards; and you will
pardon me therefore for exteudingj my in
quiries down to that time.
By refering to a file of any State Rights
paper published in South Carolina in May
of that year, you will find, under dlate of
the 17th April, a circular addressed to
"Capt. Teague," Iby "Thomas P. Spear
itt," comprising the form of a military rc
turn, in which "butcher ktives," "bat tle
axes," and "ball screws" figure with con
spicuous prominence: and stating that "-the
committee office have assigned the five di
visions of this State." The letter closes
thus: "N. B. confine your report to Union
men alone." If yin had any kntowledge
of the Teaguie and Speatin conispiracey in
1834, he good etmough to state to homn the
division in which you reside was "as
signed," and for what purpose a militarv
organization, which w as to he confined to
Union men atone was itntenided?
Perhaps, however, it would lie more
just that I should confine rmy inquires to
bulletins isstting fronm the District of Cla
rendon alone in 1834. Andl I will now
task, permisiont to direct your attention to a
Preamble anid Resolutions of the 2d of
August of that year, signedl itn your Dis
:rict by 1.52 of your parly. The 6-h reso
lution denioueces the oath of allegine
contained itn the ordinance as "a base and
nefarious conspiracy to desolre the |Union."
w hich "ought to be resisted as treason. to
the Government " Thet 5th pledges those
who sianied tn restist "woith all the means
with wchich God and Nature have endowved
them;" and the 7th is as follows, viz:
"That woe do he'reby vote, and pledIge our
fortunes, our lives and our honor,, to each
other. neyer to perm it, unresisted by, our uni
ted eforts. the infliction of a penalty upon
any man of this community, refusiti to
take the oath!!" And these are the men
who in this very paper had the daring to
denounce a Convention of the State of
South Carolina as base and nefarious con
spiratora, are they? Agninst whotm, or
ngainst whiat? Not certainly against their
state, nor against their houses, or their
own hearths? flut what was this Claren

ofSouth Carolina was to be resisted, "with

mand to know of you, who is to he held
responsible as the head and front of this
And, finally. was not the conclusion of
'hat Preamble in these words:-"We are
not insensible to the hazards of the con
test in which we are engaged; we are not
blind to the perils which we must encoun

meet them-knowing thetn, we brave death
rather than perjury, and appealing to God

There is another point to which I would
desire to be answered. ' Did not those
who signed those proceedings, in the 8th
Resolution "aver (their) irrevocable deter
mination to vote forno man to any ofice.
who advocates and supports it, ,the oath of
allegiance eithernow or hereafter, or until
he shall have changed his opinions?" Did
you sign the paper, an. if so, have you
chinged your opinions, or have your kept
your vows? Remember that a failure to
answer distinctly each of these several in
terrogatories will confer upon it the char
acter of a charge undenied.

Messrs. Editors:-Col. Richardson has
never when properly apprnached refused
to define his position as to political ques
tion pastor present-and having experi
enced his frankness I take the liberty of
speaking for him-and assurinr your read
ers that I speak what I know. Before
replying to the questions propounded
through the Courier, 1 beg leave to enter
my protest against their bpirit and motive.
I protest against the spirit ofmischiefwhich
to gain an advantage in an election of such
comparatively small importance as that of
Governor would revive to bitterness of our
old party feud. It is neither just, delicate
nor generous to rake up from Leihe all
the misdeeds and exasporations of that
bitter contest and hold one nian responsi
ble for.all; and as I believe the purpose of
these writers is to excite prejudice and not
to elicit truth--(for I presume they did
tint expect that Col. Richardson would suf

canvass) I write not to satisfy but to disap
Col. Richardson did warmly advocate
and support "the leading feature" of Gen.
Jackson's Administration, viz: his opposi
tion to a National Bank-and disapproved
of the political principles of Clay and
Webster and the other accredited expo

With the principles attributed by "Path
linder" to Gen. Jackson's Proclamation
Col. Richardson does not and never did
iccord. He denies nil constitutional right
)r power in the Federal Government to
tunish as treason, an act of obedience in
the citizen to the mandate ofn sovereign
ate. This will I think satisfactorily an
swer all the questions of that writer re
specing the Proclamation.
Of "t1he Militnry Organization" of any
party to resist the constituted authorities of
