LITTERS FRU. DISTINGUISHED GENTLEMEN.
In reaponse to the invil.ion of the C.,nm ittee to
attind the conpinentary innr gicen to our
)eprcsettatier, the lion. M. L. BONHAM, at
Edglefield. S. C., oan the 2nd &-pteiber.
-LracEviLi.a. S. C., Aug. 31st, 1859.
Gentlemen: It would 'Mor! me great pleasure
to ieot the citirzens of l'.dwfield DIistrict, on the
occasion to which you have invited me, and to
join in the compliment to your Representative in
Congress, the Hon. M. L. BosuAx.
- From the bold, independant and sagacious
course which that gentleman has pursued in re
lation to the recent legislation of Congress, on
the subject of slavery in the Territory of han
sas, Ithink lie richly merits all the compliments
you can pay him ; and although we may not he
able to point to any brilliant or elaborate speech
which he has made in his short career in the
Federal councils, upon which his ihme muight go
4own to p.sterity, there is I think imperilable
honor in that vot' against the Conference Bill.
It gives us an earuest of the firmniess, the self
reliance, and the instinctive wisdon of the man,
and his uncomproiisi::g devotion to the rights
of. the South.
Of course we cannot question the patriotism o.
those who voted for this measure ; and, as
emong the South Caroliant delegation there, ire
Iaen of acknowledged powers of intellec:t and
reat olitical experience, all of whon, except
3eu. Boxn.Ix, supported the Cnfeirenice Bill, it
iecomes us to look well, and examine thorough
ly before we venture to exprss a dissent from
the policy they have adopted, and then to ex
press that dissent with deference to their superi
or abilities. I muat be permitted to say then,
that having given a candid and unpartial consid
eration t9 the various reasons which have been
issigied for this ineasure, I have been unable to
find one upon which its prineipe or its policy
can be vin licated. I cannot lit regard it as
" r. coipromise" to secure the integrity and har
mony, Norti and South. of the Democratic party.
Its jusmlf i:-ation hias Ieen put up on four sc

applying with an oriinaot' vlilei.g 17,'T
acres of land, couildl 1i1.l-e a.11mitted withu1n .,V.
ing her the land, or submittinig to her peoie ma.y
modification of the termts she prop.1'ed to enter
the Union upon.
So much has alrealy been said on the first
three propositions, that I deem it prolr to say
but little in regard to them. As to the first, I
presume that Gen. McQuats's wandid avowal,
that the Constitution was in fact referred back,
and the subsequent rejection of the Coast itution
by the popular vote in Kaisas, has put a quiettts
upon all efforts to inaintai it ny Imger.
As to the second, that it promn'ted the harno
ny of the South, I would ask, if we have ever
found any difficulty in harmonizing the South
upon a measure of submissioun to Northern ag
gression on the institutionl of slavery ? Further
more, what is the worst that could result from a
division of our people on a resistance question ?
It is' compromise and concussion to preserve the
Union. No.body fears that any ati-resistai.ce
party would go for any palpable surrender on
the slavery question. hut they might compro
mise away our right", which in our judgment,
practically, in the end amounts to the smue thing.
To prevent this compronising then, by a tri.
umphant anti-resistance party in Georgin, Ala
bama, &c., South Carolina has been induced to
make "the com.pr.mise" herself.
I shall may nothing iupon the third headh, as]I
cannot believe that any sane mind, after, our re
cent experience of compromises at least, can be
lieve for a moment, that the anlmission of Kan.
s, by the next Congress as a free State would
excite a ripple upon the smooth stream of South.
Upon the fourth head, I propose to renmark
more at length, as I cannot hut think that here
we have the root of the whole evil, if Kansas
was sovereign, of course it becomes us to treat
with her as a sovereign; and she, prpsn a
bargain to us, we could not change the terms ol
the bargain atid then bind her to it, wuithout as
certaining her views as to the change made.
'Now, I believe that all our delegation, with
the exception of Mr. BoCEs, have maintained the
'sovereignty of the Lecompton Convention, anud
hence of' the people of Kansas. Mr. Ontn, I be
lieve, has froni lirst to last, advocated the doc
trine of " popular :,overeignty" in the Territo
ries. Mr. Kvein, in his speech on the adnisnioni
of Kaiisas unuder the Lecompton Constitution.
seems to take the same ground ; and spoke of
" the dangerous heresy," " the mischievous here
' y,"the ominus heresy," &c., &c., of refertring
contiutinsfrom sovereign conventions back
for popular ratification. Senator liux-'a's
position on this ques4tion seems to be somewhat
obscure. Ie says in his speec-h, '-the Conven
tion was an assemnbly of the people in thieir-high
est sov'ereign capacity, about to perform their
highest possible act of sovereignty," and afte-r
wards he says "and when a State has grown in
to rightful'sovereignty, whecn that sovereignty
* which has been kept in abeyaince demnatids re
cognition when a comunity is fortmed there, a
* social compact created, a .wereipuuy b'rrn :s it
were upon the soil, then Conagress is gifted with
the power to acknowle Ige it, &c., &c." I would
infer from these expressiotns that Senator H.tx
Noxu regarded Kansas at the time of her appli
cation as sovereign. But there this is negatived
in thi-* paiage of the speech. Nor does5 Coii
gros hold the sovereignty of Kansas. The
.'-sovere.ip:. y of Kansas residecs. if it resides any
whmer', wyts the sovereign States of this Uniso."
Burtv ihatever may be the position of individ
uals of <>ar delegation, it is certain that the great
majority of the statesmen of the Southern de
im eraev, are firm in their belief that the Let
evestJptiotn Convention was sovereign and hence
thait Kan~sas was the same ; and they have insde
a in e absurd distinction be'wee~n "squatter
so~vti-rOty " and " popu lar sovereignty."
.If Kansas was sovereign, wheun did she be
. enige -o'? Not from the' faet of her enteringr
uponi the formation of a State Constitution:; fo-.
.it so, this she couldl do at styy timDe in her optioi
-:md hence she was sovereign from the mioninn
of hur being populated. The .n:isa~s and Ne
braska Act of 185 I could not m-.'ke he'r sover
eign ; for it o'rganize.1d a goverunment. for hecr,
whic-h she could not chan'ge. anad with a ovrnotr
app~ointed by the President o'f the Uiiel Stsates.
No. people 'are sovereign who do not organtizo
their own government and elect their own otlicers.
It semis imupossible to point out the timne whetn
she became sovereign, unless we tsake the posi
.tion that by population she grecw into soreretignty
Now the qtuestioni arises can a pteopile grow thtus
into so~ver-eignity? Does a certain density of
-population always necessarily of itself carry
with it sovereignty ? If so, then Ireland, Hun
gary, Poland, and all populouis countries are
sovereign. Upon the reason of the thiing then
the doctrine of the sovereignty of Kanass casnnot
a be maintained.' But when yon- come to try the,
pJroposition by its effeets, supposing it to be true;
it evidently bocomecs more palpabP absurd. Sup
~pose Kausas, after the adoption of her Constitu
tion, were sovereign,-then she must be a sover
eign State now, out of the Union. If so, she has
the right to annex herself to France, from whom
we purchased her, along with the Louisiana pur
chase for tea millions of dollars. If so, all our
Territories, by forming State Constituttionts, will
lace themselves in the same situation atid have
the Same powers, and can leave us at pleasure,
and attach -themselves to any European power.
* Any doctrine so irratical in theory andu leading
-to so mueh absurdity in its consequences, must
..,.essarily be false.
Thme true thecty upon this-subject is contained
in~ the last expression quoted from Senator
Hanimond's Speech. That the sovereignty is in
the United Status; anid the doctrine of Mr. Cal
h.oun, on thiis~ subject, was that the Government
~.f the United Staites, must first "withdlraw its
aUMonty!. from over the territory," and that this
would leave it an independenit sovereignty. Of
coarse, ther'e has been no such withdrawal on the
. nart of the Governlment in the case of a ;
and hence under Mr. Calhoun's expo.ition she
'.)uld tot be sovereign. But let us consider for
a moment whether even "a withdrawal of its
authority" by the Gov-errnent. from ovAr a Terri
tor-r would constitute it a sover-igni. The Uiited
Stat.s Goiveranntat po-sesmes no suvereigity over
the Territory; but only th-, right to exeicise cer
tain very gree powers of soveteignty. The sov.
reignly t-4vif a.ites in the steveral States.
Now, 'ta what way can the Government "with.
degW its aithorityl' except by declining to exer
ese its powers? If it onily reposex to exereise
the sovereign Powers, impliedly delegated to it
by the United States, those powers would result
b'uck to the United States, and not to the people
of the TeSitory. And consequently it is impos
sible fumr sover-ignty to pass by this process from
the several States to the Territory.
The truth is. that the Government, as the
agent and trustee of the severd States, with.
draws not merely its authority (to wit, the Gor
ernmntcut's) but the authority ot the United States
from over the Territory. In other words, the
Government, although not sovereign in the prem
ises, but only posses.<ing the rig t to exercise
certain great powers of sovereiguty as lte agent
or trustee for the Unittel States, regularly invests
the Territorv with sovereiguty; traitsering it
froi the United States to the people of the Ter
ritor. It derives this power of transfering sov
erzignaty, from the satne source that it gets the
power t. govern the Territon, viz: It is iaplied
in theIr-' iii'.umptio:a of the trust by acquiring
the Territory witlhout authority f'ron the Consti.
ultion, a,.d also in the acquiesence of the people
of the sevaral States in this acquisition of Ter
ritory for the purpose of ultimate admission into
the Union as States.
If then tke Goveranment invests the Territory
with sovereigity to make a State, it mtay do this
at one time as well as another. It may transfer
the sovereignty be'l.re it forms a State Constitu
tion, or afterwards, or it may defer it in its option
to the tonent of the admuissioa of the new Stait.e
int-, the Union. The whole matter is a!wavs en
tirelv under the control of the Government. It
av11' pa.s an enabling act, with or withiut a
r:uier of sovereignty. It may makA cUAdition.4
a'ur the aplienatimt af th:. Territor to e:.tir the
Union. I:de-'ed, this I think wotld be always
imtnplie 1. Or, it tmay, as it hAs inl fact frequently
dome, adimit the Territory without any enabliNg
act, and without any transfer of sovereignty, ex
iet such as is made iii the instant of adnussion
intto the Conl federar V.
Dsut it maity lie iimagine, that if the Govern
metnt can 'Oastt a Territory t sovereign, it
usttit he sovereign itself; atntd consequently inny

l'a'rri'. ar:', f ein.Ie this bitter deluction ne

Of the Territory themselves, without necevssarily
naking that agetnt sovereign. The Government
admittedly possesses the rights to exercise mtch
soveren"at power over the Territories ; but it
is a hust reposed in the Government which it
musit exercise for the betelit (at all sections of
the Unuiont, North and South ; and hence, any
legislation agaitst slavery in the Territory is a
violation of the spirit of the Constitution and a
breach of the contidence ieposed.
If these principles are correct, then Kiainias
was not sovereign ; and hence there was no ne
cessity to treat with her as a sovereign. But it
may be said, even if site were not, the reference
back was still reasonable and proper, as it was
ilortant to ascertain her views as to the modi
flatiou nade in the land matter before receiving
her into the Union. There can be no doubt that
if the question of aditittinag Kansas had to be
tried upon its own proper merits as nn individu
ad iastance, and without reference to the cause
of the Government in other previous cases, there
would be nuch to be found in the situation and
condition of that Territory to forbid its iantroduc
tion intto the Confederacy. But the question
was not, what ought~ to be the pre-requisites of' a
peaople applying for admission,-but shmould any
dtutinction be made- between a Slare Slate and
a fee.S!wi sh prsesniay. thiemselirea. T he pre
eedents plainly demonstrate.thaethme Government
has long since abandoned aniy notion that either
populatin or organism is a necessary pre-requis
ite. The poinats upon sucha applications ais are now
a-days decided, arc, will it make a Democratic
State? or will it mnake. a Fre-State? And the
inadecent hauste with which thev' tire now ushered
intto the Untioni regardisns of' their fitness for a
place among the august mnemabers of' the great
Confederacy, is stronagly indicative of the ap
proachinag disrnaption of the Union. No body
ever dreamed that Kansas was to be admnitted
(an r-ejected utpon her fitness or unfitness for the
U'nion; but up on the paisage of' the Nebraska
Act of 185 1, the North turnued their attention to
c:ollottising that Territory by Emigrant societies,
witha thne view to exela-le thte South and restrict
Slavery ; anad the whole question was, should
she apply' with a Slave or Free Constitution ?
Thec opetrtati of' these~ societies wats a fonl ng
gression int itself utprmi the South. Withaout Slave
ry Wzitation Kansas wvonidl have become as much
aShive State as Missouri. Their soil, climate
and productions tare the same. We have it utpotn

lost to tis byilhe aggressive nmethodst of thte North
-and it is true thuat in the Katnsas Contference
Act, we have the declaration of those who votead
first that they would moat object to a Slave Comn

tained from the Northten Democracy any amaioutt
of good wholesome prinaciples declared uapon
paper or otherwise uipoin this point, short of any
fact of admnittingy a Stat'e State inmto Ithe Un~ion.
Who doubts that a joinat Resolution could have'
been carried byN Northern I.etnocratiec votes,
that as a genet at prnciple, a Shave State might
be admitted? Suipposessupon the defeat of thne
Senate Bill, thne matter had thtere rested, atnd

MR. EDITOR:-Will.you do me the favor to give
u llace in your paper to the following vindication of
the character, of Mr. Gnaso, President of Granitville
It is currently reported over the pistrict that the
Graniteville Compatiy have been exacting 25 cents a
week from the wages of the hands employed in the
Factory for the purpose of refunding the money ex
pended on the Bltrbe'cuo given at that place, on the
3rd of July last.,
It is a baso falsehood, and will be contradicted by
every individual employed by that Company. Nearly
all thoinhabitants in and about Graniteville, con
tributed to that bountiful and elegant entertainment,
and it was enti-ely a free gift.
A CITIZEN OF GRANITEVILLE,
And one of the Committee of Arrangements.
For the Advertisor.
MR. EDITOR: It is at all times a source of regret to
bring personal matters before the public; but I must
ask for a short spaee in your paper to answer briefly
some of the many harges, that aro being so vehe
mently urged against ma. I am induced to do so,
from the fact that the election is close at hand, and
professional engagements will prevent my visiting as
I desire various parts of the District.
I will not allude to the odious and unnatural opin
ions that have bean attributed to me, and which wore
calculated to wound society in one of its tenderest
and most sensitive points. I am happy to say, they
arose from a misconception of my meaning, and that
they have been wi drawn, as will appear by refer
ence to the corr o~dence, which will be published
' in another column of your paper.
The report industriously circulated by my enemies,
that I have said " That no mechanic ought to have a
monument erected over him," must have grown out
of certain remarks that I used in a speech at the Biar
during the last Term of our Court, which occurred in
the following connection :
In attempting to account for my client having temn
Iporarily left the State, I assigned bitter political
prejudice as his probable motive, and cited among
other things In support of my position, the fact of
an effort having been made to eret a monument over
pthe unfortunate deceased, when I, in substance, said,
" That, monuments are usually ereecd to States
men, Warriors or men, distinguished fur having con
furredl great benefits upon the community in which they
livedl. Dot what are the factas in this case ? It ia in
evidence, that the ill-fated decceasedl, was killedl
arounld the table of a Faro Bank,-that he was nt
that time the card-case keeper of that Faro Bank,
and the crection of a mo~numnst over the cardi-caed
keeper of a Faro Brank is withour, all precedent."
I spk thus in the dischatrge of whaut I beheredl to
bee m~y diuty to mvy client, aml 1 no0,0 reriLe it oenly ini
rindiction~ of myaelf;. for I trust in God, that I am
not the man to disturb with a rude hand, the sacred
ashes of the dead, or re-open heart wounds of the liv
ing not yet cientrizod. And in the expressions of
these sentiments, I am not coniscious of having said
ainythinsg that can wound the feelings of mechanics
as individuals or as a class. I recognize amnongst them
sonmc of my best and warmaust friends; and in forming
my friendships, I never look to the calling, but to -the
"The rank is but the gnineasta'np
The man's tho'gold for all that."
Malicious clamors have likewise been raised against
me, to the effect that I am an avowed atkeist. When
or where I have done or said anything to give rise to
this report, I am'at a lose to coneive; fur only "the
fool has said in his heart there is no God." My ear
liest associations, were with religious persons; the
spirit of a beloved father, who, for more than twenty
years was an humble follower of Christ, would re
buke me were I to speak lightly of religion; and I feel
that I would do violence to the early and continued
teachings of a fond moother, were I anythin'g else in
ventimient than a Methodist. Why my religioeus views,
whatever they may be, are perverted at thi, juncture,
whilst I accord to others their constitutional righ t of
" worshiping God under their own vine and fig tree,"
must he evident to every judicious mind. Probably
some of those Pharisees had better look to the culti
vation of their aon Christian virtues; and remember
the inspired words "judge not, lest ye he judged."
As to the remaining~ contemptible cry against me,
that I have said " I want no poor man's vote,"-the
bare statement of such an absurdity carries falsehood
upon its face. I am but a poor man myself, and it
would be hut natural that I should hope for their
support, if I could expect anything from my own
poverty or theirs. Neither Is properly any more than
occupation, the standard by which I measure men.
'Not content with ther foregoing scandal to poison
the poor against me, the proud-purse rich bar, hissed
lend whispers, that I have aspired to an office fur
which I have note the property qualiiaeation. Surely
the thousand pangs and stinging mortifications of
being "hound like Ixion to the serpent wreathed
wheel of poverty" ought to be sufficient, within itself,
without having to'suffer the unfounded reproach of
those who enjoy vulgar wealth.

My Mother! oh ! my Mother,
They tell me thou art desd!
That " the golden bowl is broken,
And loosed the silver throad"
That cold anl heavy mods
Are heaped above thy breast
Whereon my head in infancy
Was ever hushed in rest!
They say that thou wort sitting
As usual in thy chair,
When death's angel stole in softly
And left thy sumnmons there;
That after a long andi quiet sleep
llcaven's gate was left ajar, e
And thy happy spirit entered
Where Jesus' chosen are!
And there, me think, I see thee
With a crown upon thy head,
United to thy loved ones
Who before thee thence had fled; I
Thy beauteous babes of "long ago"
With tiny harps in hand,
And children grown with victor's palms
Amid the radiant band.
And oh, I would not call thee
From such a world of bliss,
To share again the sorrow,
The bitterness of this;
For though I weep to think
I shall see thy face no more,
'Tis joy that thou art tearless
With earthly sun'erings over!

imeasure failed him. He is quite spruce in his
dress, and informs us he is on his Southern and
Western tour-his last place of stoppage being
Columbia, having passed through Baltimore,
Washington City, Raleigh and Camden. We
believe he still rides Shank's Mare on his peram
bulations, and we bespeak for him a warm recep

which he may pass. He is a veteran, and we
expect he has out traveled any man in the Uni

THE Cnors.-Information as to the cotton
crop,-from all portions of our District, gives
little hope of even an everage yield this year.
If there is any exception it is mainly in the
Horse River north eastern section. In the
Longtown region, too, we hear less than usual
murmurs of drought. The cotton crop of the
District, we are led to infer from estimates of
- intelligent planters, will fall considerably short
of average, perhaps as much as one-third short.
The central lower, and all tle Broad River re

too have at length yielded, and the expectation
now is that it will fall slightly below average.
