TO THai. HON. JOHN P. RICHARDSON:
' The manner. in which the discuscion ot
your conduct and opinions hat been con
dueled heretofole. has been neither just to
ourself nor satsfactory to the public. The
babitual intervention of third persons be
tween a candidate and the peopie, offi
ciously assuming to he his interpreters,
subject him to distrust, either of not hav
ing opinions of his owu. or of being reluc
tant to express them, and to give his ow% n
reasons for his conduct. As to you, I feel
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 throt.ghout the whole of the adminis
tration of the late President. your approv
al of the doctrines and measures of that
administration will, of course, be taken for
granted, unless denied by you in your own
name. The leading feature of President
Jackson's administration was his contro
versy n ith your own State, and the doc
trines through which he sought to define
his position in that controversy, are set
forvt in his Proclamation of the 10th Dec.
k32. 'The rollowing is a summary ofthe
uni'O' d taken by that paper, to-wit: That
a prwer assumed by one State to arrest
-a! un!constitutional act of Congress, "is
ire..mpatible with the existence of the
Ui'on, contradicted expressly by the let
t-,- c.t'e Constitution, unauthorized by its
spirit, inconsistent with every principle on
whivh it was fountded, and destructive of
the great olject for which it was formed."
That the ordinance, by which a conven
tion of the people of South Carolina de
clared the protecting tariffs to be null and
void, was a disorganizing edict," framed by
those whose objects were "disunion," only
to be carried into el'ect 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 violatinit of their duty as cit.
izensof the United States, coutrary to the
laws of their country, subversive of its
constitution, and hating for its object the
destruction oJ the Union." 'That '-strict
duty required of the President, nothing'
iore (in reference to South Carolina)than
the exercise of those powers 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 tle adop
tion of the constitution became --one peo.
ple," the people of a "single nation." in
the government of which, the "people of
the States are collectively represented,"
und the 'unity' of whose "political char.
ncter" "commenced in its (the govern
ment'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 first
instance," and due in the capacity of "A
merican citizens." And, finally, that the
sovereignty of the States was ceded by
giving to the Government the powver to
punish 'treason against thte United States.'
Such were the udoctrines avowved by the
hiead' of your party, and sustainedl conri
poraneously byfederal arm~aent, and do
nestic military orgai:ation, and placed
as you have been befoare the peoplle of Solu b
Carrolina, asone of his followers, they are
entitled to know whether stuch principles
or measures, either now or in times past,
have been stustained by your participation,
or met your apaproval?
This brings us down to 1832 only, the
date of the proclamation. The period,
however, at which you are most conspic
uously put forth as a pacificattor, wrats in
1834, two years afterwards; and you will
pardon me thaerefore for extending may in
quiries down to that time.
By refering to a file of any State Rights
paper published in Soauth Carolina in AMay
of that year, you will find, undler dlate of
the 17th April, a circular addressed to
"Capt. Teague," lby "Thomas P. Spear
int," comprising the form of a mhilitary re
turn, in which -'butc;her ktnives," "battle
axes," and "ball screws" figure with con
sptcuous prominence: and strating thtat "the
committee office have assigned the five di
visions of this State." Thme letter clases
thus: "N. B. confine your report to Union
men alone." If you had any knowledge
of the Teagute anti Spearin conspiraey in
1834, be good enough to state to n' hta the
division in whic-h you reside aas "as
signed," and for what purpoase a tmilitary
orgatnization, whicha was to he confintd to
Union men alone was intended?
Perhtaps, htowever, it would lie more
just that I should confine nay inquires to
bulletins isstuing from the District of Cla
rendon alone in 1834. Anid I will now
ausk permaisiont to direct yourm attention to a
Preamble and Resolutions of the 2d of
A ugust of that year, signedl itn your Dis
:rict by 152 of your tparty. The &-h reso
luion denounces the oath of allegiance
contained itn the ordinance as "a-base and
nefarious conspiracy to desolve the Union."
w hich "ought to be resisted as treason to
the Government " The .5th pledges those
who sianed to resist -'with all the means
with wohich God and Nature lave endowed
them;" and the 7tln is as follows, viz:
"That we do hereby vow, and pledge our
fortunes, our lives and our honors to each
other. never to perm it, unresisted by~ our uni
ted efforts. the inflictiona of a penalty upon
any man of this communty, refuisinga to
take thme oath!!" And these are.thae men
who in this very paper had the daring to
denounce a Convention of the State of
South Carolina as base arid nefarious con
spirators, are they? Against whoam, or
against what? N'o: certainly against their
state, nor against their houses, or their
own hearths? Rut what wats this Claren
ulon 'cnpancyn' A n nrgnniantion inr mu.

of South Carolina was to be resisted, "with
all the means which God and Nature had
endowed thet;" and the people will de
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
that Preamble in these words:-"We are
not insensible to the hazards of the con
test in which we are engaged; we are not
bolind to the perils which we must encoun
ter. Forseeing them, we are prepared to
meet them-knowing them, we brave death
rather than perjtry, and appealing to God
for the justice of our cause, we trust the
issue to his providence, and offer to the
world the result of afiued and abiding de
There is another point to which I would
desire to be answered. Did not those

Resolution "aver (their) irrevocable deter
mination to vote for no man to any ofice.
who advocates and supports it, 0the oath of
allegiance eithernow or hereafer, or until
he shall have changed his opinions?" Did
you sign the paper, an. if so, have you
chainged 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.
From the Charleston Mersury.
Messrs. Editors:-Col. Richardson has
never when properly approached 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 assuring your read
ers that I speak what I know. Before
replying to the questions propounded
through the Courier, I beg leave to enter
my protest against their apirit and motive.
I protest againstthe spirit ofmischief,which
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 Lethe all
the misdeeds and exasporations of that
bitter contest and hold one man 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
not expect that Col. Richardson would suf
fer himself to he drawn into a newspaper
canvass) I write not to satisfy but to disap.
Col. Richardson did warmly advocate
and support "the leading feature" of Gen.
Jackson's Adminitration, viz: his opposi
lion to a National Bank-and disapproved
of the political principles of Clay and
Webster and the other accredited expo
nents of the principles of the National
With the principles atiributed by "Path
finder" to Gen. Jackson's Proclamation
Col. Richardson does not atid never did

the citizetn to the mandate of a sovereign
state. This wi!l 1 think satisfactorily an

my such organization did exist, th, know

would not join in it Col. Richardson
rann.ot thereforehbe expected to give the
letails with whici..he had no more con
,ection-anmd it seems less information
hanit '-Pthlrder" himself.
'Pathmtaler" i4 very consistent surely
n holdr Col. Richardson respotible for
oll the hostile movements when he in the
ame piece concedes him the small merit
0f having been a pac jiceator.
'Pathinder" also treats that clever and
staunch Union man, the Editor of the
Courier with very odd coturtesy when in
his very columns andI presence he inti
mates and pursues his purpose of invok
inig a spitit of presctiption atnd revenge'
to exclude from state office every1 man who
has been a member of the old Union par
ty. I would he ashamed of thte name of
which I am proud-that of "Carolinta
Nullifier" if I thought that after all ,that
has past in the wvay of reconcilemenet, and
rompromise. and niedee and co-operation,
many Nullifiers could be yet actuated by
stuch a spirit. -?
.Thatt Col. Richardson and his constit
tnents stretnuotusly and with all constitutiont
al means opposed the "test oath" or oath
of Allegiance is wvell know-but his objec
tions were founded exclu~sively on the pre
s',med intention. When by the Cotpmit
tee or F'edernl Relations the motive was
exphllined and otne party gave the nssttr
atnce thatt the oath was not inconsiutent

or selfish purposes to gratify; and has
done nothing to provoke the hitter assaults
and disparaging language of the writers

to be satisfied with this explauation-for

Under NO CIRCUMSTANCES IS any one of* this
class made an Agent. My own established
Agentshave INvARIAPLY an ENGRAVED Certifi
cate, signed B. Brandreth, M. D, in my own
hand writing. This is renewed yearly-and
when over twelve months old, it no longer
guarantees the genuineness of the medicine,
it would be well, therefore, for purchasers to
carefully examine the Certificate. The seal is
not wax. but embossed on the paper with a steel
seal. I ft lie genui nie med icine is obtained,there
is no doubt of its giving perfect satisfaction,
and if all who want it are careful to go by the
above directions, there is little doubt but they
will obtain it.
