men who seek to.warp your judgments, and to
distort the eal -issues presented for your con

The manner of conducting this war could not

gether.-that they rhight determine in their ea
paeity of sover'eigna, the course of policy which
duty, honor, sa the safety of thmetmselves and
children ftegoired thern to adopt.
What else could the Legislature hare dote ?
What ether pilth could they have trodden which
would have led to ho7not. It was truly wrong
either to fall ahort of, of, to transcend their in
structiona in a matter of so great delieacy, and
of such fearful moment. Virginia too, bad passed
the following resolutions in her Genmeral Assem
bly, which she had not yet repudiated, whereby
she had beeomne pledged to resistances
" Resolved, That we regard the pargage of a
law by the Congress-of the United States, abol

of Columbia, as a'direct attack upon the institu
tions of thme Southern States, to be resisted at

by Congress of the 'Wilmot Proviso,' or any
law abolishing slavery or the alane Lrode in the
District of Columbia, the Governor of this Com
monwealth is requested immediately to convene

journed).to consider the mode and measures of
Georgia-had vaunted to the world her inten
tion to resistiandactually called a Convention of
her people, which was in session during the
meeting of our Legislature. The Legislature of
Mississippi moreover,- which had been convoked
by its chivalrous and high-spirited Gov. Qurr
xu, had called a Convention of that State to
meet during the latter part of this year. And
besides, you had many l:onest men, stho wished
toearry~ut the recommendations ofthe Nash
v3le Convetiony but entertained consections
and constlbutional scruples in regard to the right
and powefi the Iegislature to form a solemn
league and covenaatwithany other State.
Under thinkasjieet ffairai, it was deerrred
wise bypa largemajoritf fyour Legislature, not
to commit you to any' Specific plan'of action in
advance, bat to calltaConvention temeet'during
this year,.togive falt timie for tk matter to be
canvassed before the people prioitto the eleotlion
of delegates, which elecetion, if Irnistakenc, as
'wtakepla.ein October. and to let the people,
through this Convetion, thus drgifi.ed, declare
their future course of conduct, and give it the
fiat of law. This reasonable - measure, though
was defeated by what is now called the moderate
party, and was supported by all. the friends of
separte State resistance. Pernit me ,to.ay,that
this same moderate party, thoigh ieyrefused
to make a single move, except in the appointment
of Delegates to a Southern Congress% which was
never to meet, while the sunishQne or rivers ran,
were the very warmest advocates in the Legiula
ture of the increase of Taxes, for Military pur
poses. Their ntijoi of taixtion were extrava
gantly bold. -They propqsed'il- inthat. way, to
prove to the world,-that we-were a brave people,
and by threats and bravado -to gain dll the fionor
of a manly resistani,1 ithout incurring any of
the hazarls of adecided plan of -conduct. The
compromise toaunder which the Bill was framed,
that finally provided for the election df Delegates
to a State Convention, iCame matured from the
same quarter. Those who were determined to
resist, were compelled to accept its.or do nothing,
and cover their State with disgrace. And, per
haps, I am justified in saying, that it was the
best measure, that could have beenaidopted.
What less now, as honorable men, could your
Representatives have done. If they had not res
ponded to the action of Mississippi and Virginia,
they would have placed the State in the attitude
of a base deserter from the standard of her friends,
and you would have scouted then from your ser
vice, as the violators of your confidence, and as
trators to the honor of SouthCarolina.
The miserable cry you have lately heard about
the People's being forced into a false position, by
the arts of your Legislators, in fixing the election
of Delegates at an early day, is beneath your
contempt. You are indeed ignorant, as your
false friends have proclaimed-far too ignorant to
be freemen, if you admit, as has been asserted,
by those who are now soothing you, with gentle
strokes, that you were unacquinted with the ob
jects of the election, which was held on the 2d
onday of February last. You had been living
in Edgefield District. You could read plain
print, or your neighbor could do it for you, and
Congress had just begun to perfect a system of
acts, qualified and aimed to enslave you. Under
such a state of affairs, men that you confided in,
had gone from your midst to represent you in the
Legislature. Their acts and votes, and speeches
were daily spread before the country, in the news
papers. The discussion on our relations with the
General Government was long, well sustained,
and intensely interesting. At length, on the 20th
day of December, an Act is passed, ordaining
that a Convention of the People of S. Carolina
shall assemble in the town of Columbia, " for the
purpose," as the act expressly declares, "in the
first place, of taking into consideration, the pro
ceedings and reecommendations of a Congress of
the slave-holding States, if the same shall meet
and be held ; and for the further purpose of tak
ing into consideration the general welfare of this
State, in view of her relations to the laws and
government of the United States, nnd thereupon.
to take care that the Commonwealth of South
Garolina shall suffer no detriment."
As was remarked, the election of Delegates
was fixed on the 2d Mcnday of the February then
next, about six weeks from the enactment of the
bill, and the Act was immediately heralded to the
country on the lightning wings of the Press, and
the Telegraph, and by the mouths of cannon.
So soon as your members returned from Colum
ia, they took the first occasion to explain, under
their own hands, the objects of the Bill, and to
exhort you to give your devoted attention to it
until after the election. Candidates were called
Dut, and induced to publish their view s, in regard
to the momentous question they would be com
pelled to decide. Public meetings were sum
moned, and the Convention Act was fully ex
plained by those who aided in devising it. All
his was dono previously to the election. Yet,
ame of-those wvho now assume to enlighten and
iret you, would persuade us, that on the day of
leetion,- you were entirely: uninformied of the
aghty issues you were beginning to decide. If
ou were, in truth, so utterly indifferent to your
vital interests, as these men would represent you,
ou are likely to live slaves, and die so. If that

ouldspeak to'you-, my friends, with all the re
et I-feel for' your characters 'and persons; but
ou should frown down the men who would dare
,esmade you, that you are incapable of self-go-|
It was tever intended by any one, that the
ay day for the electioitof Delegates, was de
ignd to ilke from the People the control of the
stiny of South Carolina. That day was ap
ointd, iii oider that the great questions for deei
ion, and the great causes of complaint might
ose nonebf the interest they excited, and in order
at the State iniglt hdve a Convention ready or
mized, to take advantage of any fortunate eon
ingeney that might happen, in the progress of
e events that iare now tranispiring. Why, if it
ould be jiidged ridst condricive to the interest

f the great enterpiisd of her heart, to wait two
rears for the co-opeiation of her sisters, accord
g to thie provisions of that Bill, it is entirely eon
istent and proper for her to do sd. The Legis
atue may not call the Convention together until
t latter part of the ncit year, and then the Con
vention, if it deemis it expedient, mnay, with the
tost propriety, postpone its final action for 12
oths more. If you really purpose to act in

THEz Southern Press speaking of thne ne

The people of South Carolina are neither
friVolous, fickle, factious nor turbulent. No

more united in sentiment, more remarkable

It was from South Carolina that the original
plan of~ the federa' Constitution emainted.
nd she has always contributed a brilliant
quota to the concils and the fields of the
Union. South Carolina feels no disappoin

Perhaps the most extraordinary trait in the
course of South Carolina on the pending
question is the unity, he unamitilty of her
people. ON a I Wosin so Imporant, so vi.
tal, so new, her population, property, and in.
telledt, seem to be in almost perfect harmony.
There is almost no 'difference of opinion as
to the objectthe.ortly question Is as to the
.time, the mode, andsthe means.
This is the most solemn and Impressive
protest that has ever been made against ail
ct of the federal government. It goes to
the very exisfen'ee of the system at once,
Now there are some county lawyers, and
-cross-roid party politicians, that can settle
this difficulty "compendiously. They would
compel South Carolina to obey this governs
ment, and submit to a continuance in this
Union, under the pains and penalties of trea.
son. But no statesman will be found-eapa
ble of such folly. Mr. Burke, who was a
statesman, and who certainly did not lean
too much to liberty fron power, declared he
did not know how to draw a bill of indict
ment against a whole people,-and that it
could never be presumed that a whole people
could be factions. or deluded, in reference to
their own rights and interests.
The course, however, towards South Caro
lina begins to be indicated. It Is to foment
division and enmilty among her people. The
National Intelligencer of yesterday, attempts
to excite the "mass of the people of South
Carolina" against the " aristocracy and here
ditary wealth of the State," for using "its
political power to answer it personal ends."
Now. when such a paper as the Intelligencer,
:the chronic organ of priviege, of corporation,
of protection, of class, comes out for the
masses against aristocracy and hereditary
wealth, what.is to be expected next? Will it
pronounce for abolition and socialism, like
its co-party friend, the Tribune ?
But the expedients of despotism are the
same. - The court of Austria has long been
exciting the races and sects of Hungary a
gainst each other, in order to overthrow the
constitution of that kingdom-Croats against
Magyars, Catholics against Protestants.

I BEG leave respectfully to inforni the citizens
of Edgefield, Village and Country, that I have
commenced a MERCANTILE BUSINESS in
the house situated between Mf. BaRay's Store
and the Court House.
My. STOCK, consisting of all the varieties
usually foind in a Village Retail Store, has been
recently puichased in Charleston, from Houses
that import their Goods, principally, dirdet froik
Europe. And I flatter myself that an ex
perience of five years in an Importing and Job
bing House in Charleston, together with other
facilities, has enabled me to get a STOCK of
GOODS. that will, in point of STYLE and PRCE,
compar'e favorably with any Establishment in the
nlace. Persons wishing to purchase Goods for
CAilE or on a credit until first of January next,
will loose nothing by giving me a call.
A small share of patronage is earnestlysolicited;
