Conventii as would not only command the
entire confidences of the people at home, but
whose.distinguished- ability and services were
well calculated to illustrate and maintain the
purity of the honor, and integrity of the prinei
pies, of the State any-where. In their opinion
they have eminently succeeded. - They have
dlected.those who' indentified as they are with
the best interests of the :State, and representa
tives of its various sections, come strongly re
comiended to thle judgment of the Convention.
Your Committee would, therefore, present for
the hearty sanction and approval of the Con.

following distinguished sons of South Carolina:
Hon. F. W. Pickens, Hon. J. L. Manning, Hon.
A. G. Magrath, Gen. J. M. Grdberry.
Mr. J. P. Watts, from the Fourth Congres

Mr. McGowan. fromheCommittee on Resa
lutions, reported the following resolutions, unan
imously adopted by his Committee, represent
ing the spirit of various resolutions submitted
1. Resolred, That a proper administration of
the affairs of the Federal Government must de
pend upon a careful regard, on the part of each
of its branches, for the liUitations..upon their
powers, imposed by the Constitution of the
United States, and a due respect to the reserved
rights of the several States.
2. Resolred, That the principle of the equal
rights of the States in the view of the Consti
tution, and of all laws based upon it., constitutes
the fundamental condition upon which the Union
was formed, and canstlone be mAintained.
3. Resolced, Thalfwe recognize in the remov
al of the Missouri restriction upon the equal
rights of the slaveholding Stuies, a practical
acknowledgment of that great principle upon
the part of the Federal, Government, and deem
this a proper occasion to render our support and
assistance to the Democratic. party in the nomi
nation and election of a Presidential candidate,
who may represent the late action of that party
upon this question, and whose claims of success
may be m -de to depend, not upon a combi iati. i
for the spoils of office, but upon a fair presen
tation of the great issue which is to be joined
between the triends of the equal rights of the
States, and a strict constructim gf the Consti
tution.and those who are opposed to both.
4. Resolved, That in conformity with the re
quest of our sister State, Georgia. to " co-oper.
ate" with her upon this subject, this Convention
deems it fit and proper at this time that we
waiving for tl.e present all objection to its or
ganization and mode of proceeding-should be
represented in the National Democratie Nomina

of our friends of Georgia, that said Convemtthn

shall, amongst other things, itnclude insubstance
the followinig propositions: I. rTe recogniton

6. Resolced, That Franklin Pierce is the first
choice of this Coneention for P'residen~t of the
~United States, and that thorough identification
in sientimetnt and tipinion witht the priiples em

site, itndispensable to our support af any candi
date of the Democratic party.
Mr. Meetze moved that the vote be taken on

TRE FATAL DUEL, A-r FAIR BLUFF. S. 0.-The
Wilmington, N. C. Herald of the 6th inst., gives
th following particulars of t he fatal duel at
Fair Bluff. mentioned in a telegraphic dispatch
in our columns on Mondaty evening:
"Our community was paitnfully startled on
Saturday afternoon last by the reception of a
telegraphic dispatch from Marion. S. C., to the
effect that a hostile meeting had tsken plaice
near Fatirs Bluff, between Win. D. Willkings
and Jos. H-. Flaniner, F-'., both youtng men atnd
citizens of this place; and that on the third fire,
the former received the bail of his antaigoist
throught the lunig', and, in a very fewv miutes,
expired. The difficully grew out of a speech
made by Mr. Willkings, on Wednesday evening
last, at the Demoeratic meeting at the Court
House. Theyfought with pistols, at ten paces
-Mr. Willkings being the challenger.
We do not feel called upon to say more upon
this most unfortunate occurrence, except that the
parties were very much esteemed here by their
friends and acquaintances ; and that this tragiegl
result has cast a gloom, the like of which, we
trust, may never occur again."

the solid excellence of mature years, has been mesi
upportunely appropriated to the service or the coon

We regard Judge Magrath as ninently qualified

intellect is in the fulness of its strength. ,. His mind
is comprehensive, as well as acute ; and his clear
ness of apprehens.on, and power of argument and

sic efforts, and are acknowledged by the Bench as
well as by the Bar of the State. His temper and
demeanor are also admirable-courteous, affable
and perfectly self-possessed, he has won the univer
