AN ABSTRACT OiHE
Remarks of M. W. Gary, Esq.,
M the .ezpdiency of sending Delegates to the
approaehink Cincinnati Convention, on rising,
to secohd the Preamble and Resolutions offered
by 6l. Sintkins.
lli.;SA1nAtAN 1 It is true we live in a great and
,urisling Republie. The noininatton of a President
"a Vic' Pzhilelt to preside over her destinies,
tA mideth'e wise provisiouns -.f the Constitution to
diminister - evet hantded justice'' to ill of her citi
MIS, is an oceasion of great an I eicitig siioment
her distingtished Statesmen, and one hiat never
Fla to guicken the'pu6at ioP,evea, of lierhumihes'
triots. Alrealy Ias our gallant sentinel in tlie
louse of Representatives expressed himiself in
ivor of oirtaking p-rt in' the approaehing Cofi
etion, anl the demonstration of public sentiment
mows that the great nmass of our people are willing
> respond to his counsel. -
As important an.1 deeply ab orbing as this nom
nat'hn1as ever h'en to the peo're of this Confeife
ac, perhaps. therv is po period.of.her histgry.n
hich the election or a Presiient that woull stand
Iv te Constitution, and protect the threatened'
iglIts of Ohd Southi has bedn if gi-t4cr solicitude or*
sould contribute more to the perpetuity of this*
iion. Judging from the temper of the times,
e are convinced that it is tite part of wisdom MM'
atriotism, to cosunsel in harmony with. our sister
tats; un I to east our aid and influence in Ots'
omination of a candidate that will favor the pe
uliar interests of the South.
It has been the policy of South Carolina for the
mst 6flteen years, with-a few exception.s, to take vo
art in the nomination, and often to tjrow away her
ote. A blind adherence :t a custom that las
roven to be of no practical benefits political ad
nucement or utility, is the part of a bigoted. *d
arrow-minded conservatisn that does not deserve
he encoura.Zenleht of t free and enlightoned. public
pinion ; time can never hahlow that which is-im
Kptent in operation, and injttrinus in its effeets. - -
The great name of CALnIuS, " whose solid v'r
ues the shot of accident, or the dart of chance,.
ould neither pieree-nor penetrate," isbrought for
card as the in-uperable-and convincing argunrmr
gainst going into the Convention. It has been
veil sirid, that what is a ulise net tW-day may not
e so to-morroW. The'facts and circumstances that
influenced Mr. CanU.oux's opinion have since ebeng
. The policy of medtingih Convention, to ne
nt611ddiatcs fu'r 'the Pe'.sidenc'y and -Vibe Presi
leny, is no longer an'experiment-it has been
mdpted osr aen'eseed in by every State in theUnion
-xcept outs. And by the principles 6f the common
law it his become aI is recognized as a fixed ana
mportant. part of the political machinery of our
Guve nient. We adujuit utdforce of t'ie objectiotn,
to the basis of the organization of the conventioti,
that is, that the larger States have too mut1 power
-that the spirit of the Convention is not carried
out. But, Sir. the same argument, if carried! to its
logical sequence would exclude us from the Federal
louse of' ltpresentatives, for the Black Republican
party ire now in t lie majority-the Constitution has
ceased to be regarded as sacred, and its provisions
are not faiihtully observed.
Previous to theadoption of theConvention system
a Congressioial caucus was the node of nominating
a Prviident and Vice President. bIr. CuLvuO in
his letter (of February, A. v. 18 14, stake that this
was a cierrupt, vile. and demnorabling system: and
that he, together wvith Gevn..hexsox, aided in pet
itg it dowen. In the same letter lie admits that
the provisioins of the Constitutional method are too
refned for practice. Experience has verified the
correct ness of his j udgemient.
In the year IS01, the election of. the .Presidet
nd Vice' Per'edent devol ved u.pon thes Federal
llsuse of' Representativ'es. A fter manty disgraeeful
intigues .Jarv.nsox 'was elected by a siugle vote
over Bonnui. The. operation of the Constittinal
method was then admitted, by all parties, to be itn
satisfatortey andi def'ective. A gain, in the year 18'24,
there was no Cotigressionaul caucus, or ntointiton
in convntiint. -l A esos, thiought receiving the high
et vote in the Electoral Ciolege, was defeated in
the Fedleral Ilouse of' Representatives by Jonix.
QetcY A Daus. the iunost bitter and distinguished
A btol;tioist of' his day. 'This election pr'ovyd to be
entirely dil'erent from the wishes of the people,
andl contirrmed at honest Stcitesmien in their judg
met, as to the previously develoPed defects of the
Constit utionial msei bod. An.1', in order to remedy
this evil, in the yeair 1SJS, IEss-oN in the Senate,
and Mleirrts in the 1[eouse, introdluced resolutions
to aend the Constitutional muethod, whtich were
vo'ed don: and it now remai:ns in fu1l fure, eloth
ed with all of its ' fault., and defects.
Then, Sir, since Congressional caucus's no longer
cist ; since the 1-rovisions of the Constitution have
prlven to be too refined in theory for practice, ansd
since we have filed in amending them, we are ine
it:bhy reduced to hlobson's choice-that of taking
the Cotvention as it is.
Th'e Convetntiotn is not such as we would have it,
neither, Sir, is the Constitutiona itself ; and we can
only indl a perifectly org mitzel governentt itn Plato's
lelal Republic, or Mloor'e's Ctopiai. We live in an
age eminently J.stiguished for its progress, prae
ie'nbity and utility iiind I ask what are we to gain
by sading. aloof any longer from the Conventioni
it the.lat tifteen years have we'maide a single eoa
vert to our isolated positlon ? Ilavea we ingratiated
urselves with a single. State? Or have we nat ..
rather alienaited our sister States from us by this
exeusivo policy 1 In fact, hove our .rights .beent
berter protected and secured I flare our grievances
been more readily listenedi to, and our wrongs more.
ru:ekly redressed !No, Sir. ThIe wild spirit .of'
Nirterin ag:.ressioin hans turned a deaf enr to our
eoplaits: andl the iron heel of fanaticismt has not
been less grinding anid degrading.
A gait, ean it be denied, that so 'ong as South
Carolina remains in this Confederacy, she must and
hides feel a direct intesest in the proper administra-.
tion of the Goveernmtent ? Ihoes shte not parta'ke of'
its god fortune, and! must she nut share its evils . -
Is is ot also a nmatter of fact, that the Government
will miy be adminiistered favorably to South Carm
in, when that party that recognises the Constitu-.
Liunal existence of Southern institutions is in pow'er?
And do we consider any otther p-irty, except thu
Dmoratie, as being favorable to the South ? Then
the Democratic party must be placed in power, an~d
hiis idone by every Denmocratio State concentrat
ing thir influence by sending deleg.ites 'to the
Democratie Convention. The refusal of any State
tissend Delegates is a detraction fromt the whole gr.
gggregate inftluencoe of the party. Thmose, therefore,.
whit reuse to send delegates wanto'nly diminish,
he chances of nomninating a candidate that will.
favor their own views and subserve their interest.
If we are ever again to take a part in the nonmia
ton, can there be a more favorable timie to do it'?
I is now no lounger a miatter of conjes'ture, who has
the aseneicy in the luse of Reprwesentativ'es.
aas has beeni elected Speasker, after an uaprece
dented contest oiver one of our own Represent~atives.
AAnd we are told that if the people fail to electin.
he iletoral College. and th - elction fallus into the
Fderl hlouse of Representatives, that notiig is
mote certain than that is:e will have a Bhaek Repub
Iien t President and Vice President. The. lack
Reeublican banner has alreiady been unfurled, and
is now triumphantly waving over the Cspitolof-the
tiiited stts Their casmp-ires are being kindleud
upon the pltas otf Kansas, and we are convinced
hhat it will become the great battle-fiel of the South.
There will be decided the great questioth as to
wh hettr they' will be permitted to say to the shave-.
ooletrs, " thus far shtalt theo earr y thy property and
