incensed aganmst.Souga Carolina for boldly
struggling in a cause, whieh they have solemnly
declared to be justand righteous, and which in
a few years, they look upon as inevitable?
The natural and civil relations -subsisting be
tween tie various Southern States, and the na
turof. the contrpversy now between the North
and the South, utterly negatives any such con
elusion. Such conduct would, in our judgment,
be contrary to reason and experience.
But further. The Southern States, fur from
believing themselves involved in the contest by
South Carolina, will be forced to regard them
selves as part authors of the confliet. For is it
not in the power of these States by their combi
ned efforts in Congress, to prevent any struggle?
Who believes thataif.as a body, Southern mem
bers in Congress, should sternly resit co-ercion
by the .Qeneral Government, that force would
be employed ? Should the North, against the
remonstrances of the whole South, forcibly re
sist the secession of South Carolina-what
would be the inevitable result? The.certain
and sudflen dissolution of this Union. The
Southern States, therefore, hold this issue com
pletely in teir own power;. and knowing and
feeling that- ho cause we espouse is just: that
our common wrongs, to redress which prompts
our action, are grievous and severe; and that
each State has the i ight, for causes deemed by it
sufficpnt peaceably to withdraw from the Union
-they could never regard South Carolina as
as invoiing them in a contest with the Gene
ral Government " without cause." Unless by
the most strange inconsistency and suicidal poli
cy, they will consider themselves identified with
us in this great issue. These Slates will render
us aid, and at no distant day, join us in a South
ern Confederacy. They will certainly withhold
all aid and sympathy from the Government in
its attempts at co-ercion. It would be highly
unjust and ungenerous to our sister States to
suppose them capable of any other course.
How now the other Southern States could
look upon South Carolina in this contest as ac
tuated by " factious and selfish motives," is to
us wholly inconceivable. To indulge such a be
lief is to have a poor opinion of the spirit and in
telligence:of the Southern people, or to take a
very', superficial view of the Southern cause. I
In that cause, as we are led to regard it. are in
volved great and everlasting principles, which ie
at. -the- bottom of Southern freedom and safety.
The sovereignty and independcnce of the indi
vidual States-the institutitn of slavery--the
subject of taxation: there are the watchwords
in the Southern camp. On these issues, rest the
all in- all of the Southern States. To maintain
them to the utmost of our strength, with our
blood and our treasure, is an imperative duty, to
neglect which, is to involve ourselves in ruin.
The other Southern States feel'the growing
importance of these issues. They know, they
can never give in to the nacendeney. of Northern
power, without losirg their freedom and inde
petidence; without giving up their institution of
slavery; without subjecting' themselves. to an
odioussystem of taxation that knows no bounds.

THrE CONTEsT IN GnoItoA.--The Macon
Telegraph, in comnmeniting on the principles
of the Union candidat~e for Governor, who,
it appears, has ini sundry speeches denied the
right of :e State to secede, has the following
" The controversy between South Carolina
and the General G~overnnment is not one of
her own seeking, neither does it concern her
self alone. It is as mneh a contest between
Georgia and Alabama wIth the North, as it
is of South Carolina. Whatever diff'erence
of opinion thcre may be with regaird to the
action of the latter State att this time, it is
impossible in the very nature of things that
the neighboring States should side with the
Federal Government, and aid in her msubjuga
tien,- without sealing their owrn doom. A
State coerced into submission by th~e Genera~l
Government, wvhen ;reis'ing its aggressions
on the institution of elavery, will be a proc
lamation to thme whole world that abolition
is triumphant on this continent. It will be
virtually telling the enemies of slavery
throughout the Union, that we are ready to
yield up the whole question and pass quietly
under the-'yoke of a reckless and aggressive
majority in ~Congress. If the people of
Georgia desire to let their voice be heard on
the side of effectual resistance to Northern
aggression, let them affirm the right of a
State to secede, although they may never
*rish to exercise it. But if, on the other
hand, satisfied with anything they can get
from their Northern masters, which God in
his. mercy. forbid, they wish to send to such,
friends of the Union as Fillmore & Co.. the
"earth and water," the tokens of absolute
unconiditionail submission, they can do it in
no way more eflfectually than by electing a
Governor who denies the right of secession,
or remains silent while the right is denied
by abolitionists and froesoilers at the North,
and submissionists at home."
GREETING FROM AFAR.--The Washington
Republic devotes coneiderable space to the
late Hamburg Meeting, which it terms a pop
ular movement, doubtless in ignorance of the
fact that the meeting embraced 200 persons
principally from Hamburg, Graniteville, and
Augusta. We would not admit that all
Edgefield District wvas the State, but the at
tempt to pass off thme voice of a small sec
tion of Edgefield, reinforced from Augustat,
Ga., as the senseopf the State, is truly redie
ulous and Republican. The Republic is
highly delighted with the letter of Mr. Burt,
'f ts calm good sense contrasts so favora
bly with the frantic declamation of such gen
tlemen as Mr. Woodward and Mr. Rhett,
that it. cannot fail to produce a strong itm
pression on the public mind of the State.
"Calm good sense," with a vengeance,
truly? Will the Republie point out any
Rhett or Mr. Woodward, that.4isplaye4 less
"calm good sense" than Mr:Burt's letter.
THE CHURCH CASE.-The latest informa
tion (says the Southern Christian Advocate)
we have in regard to the law suit, is embraced
in the following paragraphs taken from the
leading editorial of last -week's issue of the
Christian Advocate and Journal. We hope
the offer of the Northern book agents will
be received in the spirit of frank and kind
reciprocity, that all further litigation and
trouble will be forestalled:
It is a fact which will, no doubt, be re
garded of great importance, that under this
recommendation, the Book Agents of New
York and Cincinnati' arebrought to a point
from which they are authorized, by the Gen
eral Conference, to offer a settlement of the
ease by 'arbitration." In the plan for a 'pa
ific' settlement of the 'matters in dispute'
between the Methodist -Episcopal Church.
North, and the Methodist Episcopal Church,
South. adopted at the General Conference of
1848, is found the following resolution:
"2. Resolved, That should the agents
find, upon taking such legal counsel, that
they have not the power to hubmit the case
to voluntary arbitration, and should a suit at
law be commenced by the commissioners of
the Methodist Episcopal Church, South,
;aid agents are hereby authorized then, and
ir that case, to tender to said commissioners
n adjustment of their preferred claims by a
legal arbitration, under the authority of the
"We are advised, that. under the authority
iven by this resolution, the agents at
New York :nd Cincinnati have resolved,
without unnecessary delay, to offer to settle
he claims of the Methodist Episcopal
ihurch, South, in the mode contemplated in
his resolution. How the offer will be re
:eived, we are not able to say. This mode.

ALABASA SouTnERx RIGHTS CONVEN
riox.-A Convention of the Southern Rights
ssociation of Alabama took place at Mont
romerv, on the 10th inst. Nineteen Associ
tions were represented. Ninety-three dele- I
rates were present. This is the second Con
ention held in Alabama, and evinces an ear
iestness on the part of our sister State to
naintain the right of separate secession.
L'he following Preamble and tesolution
vere unianimously adopted :
" Whereas, in the opinion of this Conven
ion, events of recent occurrence indicit.
hat one of the sovereign StaLes of this
Jnion is llacinr herself in a situation to se

"And whereas, in the opinion of this body,
my State has the right to secede, and from
he very nature of the case, is the only judge
)f the justice and propriety of such act
" And whereas. it is not improbable that
he exercise of such right by the seceding
Rtate will be opposed with arms by the Gen
ral Government. Therefore be it
" Resolrd, That any Southern State in
:be exercise of its own judgment, should

onvention, it would become the duty of
