JAMES K. POLK. of Tennessee.
FOR VICE. PRESIDENT.
GEORGE. M. DALLAS, of Penn.
flevia.-Ak letter received in this village
'from'the Mount Veriion Camp Meeting. states
that there had been a considerable rivival, and
that many souls had been happily converted,
about forty 'of which had been already added to
the M. E. Church. The meeting was very
large, and still in progress, oil Monday evening
The lWhig Meeting at Madison Georgia.
Is it true that there is no longer any patriotism
in the land I Is there no honesty, no consisten
cy in public men? Has it come to this, that our
politicians in subserviency to party tactics, are
bound to advocate to-day, measures, which they
denounced yesterday? We have been led to
these reflections, from hearing, that at this
meeting, Messrs. Preston and Thompson, who
were leading Nurlliers in 1832, who by their
eloquent denoncia'tions of the- Tariff of that
period. aroused our people to resistance, even
at the expense of-the Union, if needs be, open.
ly advocated in their public speeches the Tariff
-of 1842. We confess that nothing has more
deeply impressed us with the conviction of the
political degeneracy of the times, than this fact.
The lesson deduced from it is, that party is
strenger than principle, and somaepublic men are
net to be trasged. Unless the eyes of the South
era people.and indeed of all the people of these
United States are speedily opened to the dan
gers which threaten us. from this quarter, we
know not how our liberties are to be saved.
Mr. Calhoun.-We publish to-day the letter
from onr distinguished statesman to the editor
of the Petersburg (Va.) Republican, in reply
to the charge that lie was unfriendly to the
Union. The letter breathes the same spirit of
devoted attachment to our free federative sys
tem of Government, which has ever rarked
and signalized the life of its author. If the
Federal Government is administered with "jus
tice, equity and a strict adherence to the Con
stitution." There is no man in the limits of
South Carolina, who would not peril his life
at any moment in its defence.- We always be.
lieved when South Carolina nullified the Ta
riff, that the charge of a design on the part of
her leading statesman to dissolve the Union,
was wholly destituteoffoundation. We thought
thO that Mr. Calhoun was actuated by a dee p
and patriotic attachment to the Union, and
that his great purpose w to restore the Con
stitution, and perpetuate the confederacy upon
the basis on wvhich it was originally established.
T~hat Mr. Calhoun would counsel the State to
pursue a course now in reference to thte Tarit,
which would compromise her honor or result
in perpetuating upon her the oppression of that
iniqulitious system ofjplunder, may be insinuat
ed, but certainly cannot be believed. In his
profound sagacity, in liis steru integrity, and
deep devotion to South Carolina we have an
abiding confidence. We are not informed,
nordo we pretend to know certainly what are
Mr. Calhoun's views as to the course wvhich the
State ought to pursue at this time in reference
to the Tariff. But we are confident that the
policy of awaiting the result oftile Presidential
election, before any action is takein; meets his
apploval. We regret that any portion of the
people of the State should be -inclined to-ear
liez action, as we cannot-see the reason for it.
We deplore even the faintest prospect of any
division in the State, on this subject. Let there
be no division. Let us act in harmony. Let
us by a short forbearance show our friends in
the surrounding States that we are acting with
themn in good faith. And if there should be no
change in 'the Federal councils bringing us re
lief, then let us act together, and acting thus~
wre shall have a better chance of throwing off
the systein of plunder of which we complain..
We cannot close this article without expresslag
the sincere pain wvith which we have observed,
in a certain quarter, from which we least ex
pected it, insinn~ations of "defection in our lea
ders." We tell our friends that their course is
.calculated to do much injury; and that'they
know nothing of the feeling, of ~the people
throughot't the State, If they suppose that such
insinuations of desertion Otn the part of our
"h elmsman" will be believed ; and that they
judge rashly if they concluded such a conlrse,
on their part, is calculated,to do any thing else,
than to irritate and distract our ranks.
South Carolina and the Tariff.--Tbe position
of this State, at this time, in reference to. the
*Turiff is misrepresented and misunderstood
abroid. The whig presses, whig orators, and
their great leader Mir. Clay himself, have andea-.
vored-to ' ical capitalout of certaini in.
dividual sen meats expressed in t his State, in
.reference to the Tariff, Texas and the Union.
From these,, the charge is deduced that the
State is now ripe for Disanion,iuaidMr. Polk
is held responsible for this nonsequences. It is
'needless for us to say that~ ins South Carolina
this charge requires no denial. 1Jd for ihe
sake of truth and our cause abroad we under.
take to say that South Carolina has entered in-;
to the Presidential contest in good faith. Sihe
believed Mr. Polk to bo a staunch Free Trade'
man, and worthy to be trusted. She feels th'e
oppression of thg TarIff, and does not inte ivi
to submit to it. 'She will do all in her power
to anenrae thn mnei. of te. Deoratic.,:tr....-.
id will not. take it for granted now, that from
thatsuccess she has no hope of relief. She
will do all that is in her power to procure re
lief by a change in the councils-of the nation.
She will await the result patiently and calmly.
Slie will not take any measure of an extreme,
or what is called udtra character for a redress
of her wrongs, until all hope in every other
way is cut off. We think we speak the senti
ment of the State, when we say that she will
in good faith act with our Democratic brethren
in the approaching election. that looking confi
dently to our success, she hopes for relief,
from the justice of the Democratic party, and
that failing in this, bho will thn take that
course which as a sovereign State it may be
come her to adopt. She cannot Ie indifferent
to the symiatsy and co-operation of her sister
States in like condition, and she will act in
conjunction with them, or alone, as circumstan
ces may demand.
State Cattle Sho.-The Greenville Moun
taineer states that the semi-annual neetinir of
the State Agricultural Society is to be held at
that place on the 10th of September. It is pre
sumed that Delegates from District Socielies
will be in attendauce from neatly every part ol
the State; and the exhibition of Stock, should
the weather prove favorable, will be very large.
The Agricultural Society of Greenville Dis
trict has concluded to award Premiums for
stock owned by its members at the same time
which will add no little to the interest of the
New Cotton.-The Cl'arleston Patriot of the
9th inst, says: "Two bales ofthe new crop
being the first in Market this season, was re
ceived by the Rail Road, this morning, from
the Platation of U. At. Robert, Esq., Barnwell
District, and consigned to Elisha Carson.'
Ourself.--Haviug a few leisure moments, we
have come to the conclusion to lay before our
readers some of:he causes why the editor of
the Harnburg Journal has, for some time past,
acted so unbecoming the dignity of an editor
towards us. We do this, not with a view of an
swering his unparrallelled blackguardism, but
to show the world, that this district contains a
thing, at the head of a press, that would stoop
to any means to carry his point. Until the ap
pearance of ",Carolina," in our columns, for
aught we knew, we were npon the best terms
Upon the appearance of the second or third
communication from that writer, the editor ad
dressed us a friendly note, requesting the name
of the author, which we (belonging to that class
that can keep a secret,) declined giving, think
ing at the time we answeted his letter, that its
contents was, or at least should have been so
on his part, confidential; but to our surprise, a
portion of it appeired in his next journal, as a
part of his vindication in an answer to "Caro
lina;" from that moment, we acknowled-ge, we
began to think lie had not acted in good faith,
and his course towards us since has convinced
us, that their is not one iota of the dignity and
generosity which ought to characterize the
course of an editor belonging to him. Having
been severely handled by ' Carolinas," lie, for
the purpose of drawing the atention ofhis ren.
ders from the shameful defeat lie had suffered,
commenced with his accustomed blackzuardistn
upon our humble self, and the more effectually
to punish us, as he thought, by taking from us
the mainstay of our support, lie published his
long to be remembered, half price card, think'
ing, no doubt, that the high tminded ntlicers
of our district. were,like himself, easily bousght
o'er, but in this lie was as badly deceived as
the soldier when lie burnt his shirt ; his bait
was tnt of the riught kind, our Court Ilouse is.
and we have a hone always will be, too large
to contain hue lhalf pricc tackies.
Finding that lie was sorely disappoinited ini
the mannier which thsat base and utnanly at

and like the adde~r knawed uipon the file. until
the appearance ini our columns of a conimutni
catioii over the signature ,f "No Coast,'' which,
fronm the manner in which heO spit outhis black
guard epithets, must have touched a tender
point-lie raved-accused us of writing the ir

estuman could be guilty of, save that of clhent
ingour creditors by the benefitof the Baiikrupt
Law, wthich lie knew would have beeni too no
torious a lie to have published Alt of which
we unequivocally proinounce to he a he, and
call upon him, if he is an honest man, to prove
it. We have lived twenty years in this district,
and have never, as yet. beeni accused of wrong

odand bad times, strove in pay ourjust debts,
if we took a long time to do it, without ever
tising fraudulenit means to obtain a release.
When about 8 or 10 years of age. whilst going
to school in the city of Savanni'h, we in con
nexion with a number of boys about our owni
age, took fromi the roof of the Academy, upon
which we got by means of the lightning cosi
dictor, some scraps of lead, for which we and
those connected with us in the transaction pro
uored'some coppers woith of gingerbread or
wate~elons, this was done in broad daylight,
aidithis. we presume, as we often spoken ofrthe
circumstance, is the story of the lead in full, as
some of those who were concerned in the trans
action; are now living in this district and wil
hung totestify to thietruth of the tale. Had the
editor of the Jourisal the manly principle that
he ought-to possess, he would tell the story of
th'e lead correctly, bitt we have no right to ex
pect him to* be canght teling the truth.
We have. paid for our office by the sweat of
our brow, aiid not by die proceeds ofthtat lead,
or kissing the ' "calfskin," nor have we ever
accused th'e editor of purchasing the establish

EDGEFIELD CIRCOIT QUARTERLY NEETINo.
At the third Quarterly Conference of the
Edgefield Circuit. held at Monnt Vernon Camp
Meeting on the 91h day of August, 1844, after
the usual business of'the Conference was trans
acted. the following preamble and resolutions
were unanimously adopted:
Whereas the majority of the members of the
State General Conference represetiing non
slaveholding States, have by their-action oil the
subject of slavery, as connected with the cases
of the Rev. T. A. Harding and BishopAndrew,
have violated the compromise which has long
united the Northern and Southein portions of
tile Methodist Episcopal Church, and thereby
maniifeeted a spirit of hostility and proscriptIon,
dangerous to out .:ivil and religious institu
tions; and wheteas, we the members of the
Quarterly Conference ofthe Methodist Episco
pal Church for the Edgefield Circuit, deem it
our duty and priviledge to expresm freely and
calnly our opinions oin matters involving the
interests and prosperity of our beloved Church,
Resolved, That we consider slavery as it ex
ists in these United States, a civil institution,
and in no way conitray to or in violation of
the Disciplinle of the Methodist Episcopal
Church nor the word of God.
Resolved, That although we deeply lantent
there should have ariaen any just caust of divi
sion bdtween the Northern and Southern por
tions of our Church, which have been long uni
ted by the strongost ties of Christian union, yet
we believe the time has now come and circum
stances have arisen, when that union can no <
longer be preserved without violating our con
sciences and surrendering our dearest rights.
Resolved, That our Delegates from the South
and those from non-slaveholding States who
acted with themn, are entitled to our warmest
thanks and gratiude fot the firm and faithfal
stand which they took in tile late General Con
ference, in defence of oir rights as guaranteed
to us by onr Book of Discipline, and sustained
by the word of God.
Resolved, That we approve of the terms of
division agreed upon, and tn order that they
imay be carried ont to a happy termination. we
recommend to all parties to cultivate a spirit of
Christian charity and forhearance towards
each other, and a constantreliance on the great
head of the Church, for wisdom to direct in all
Resolved, We approve of 'he contemplated
Convention to be held in Louisville, Kentucky,
otn tie first day of May, 1845, for the purpose
of organizing a Soihern Chtrch. and recom
iend to our next annual Conference to elect
Delegates to attend said Convention.
Resolved, rhat we highly appr ove of the firni
and dignified course of Bishop Andrew, in re
fusintg to subinit to thle dictation of the tmajuri
ty of thte General Conferenee.
ilesolved, That our beloved senior Bishop
So'ule. is entitled to our warmest thatnks for the
magnlanimonts course lhe took in the General
Conference itn favor of the South, and should
