A YXBY HIGH-HANDED ACT.-There
is, in Glasgow, Howard County, a
church owned by Southern Meho
dists. To thfe church, the Southern
Methodist Conference had appointed
Rev. Mr. Swinney as preacher. Ber.
Mr- Swinney, under his appointment,
had taken possession. But it seems
a Conference of Northern Methodists
had appointed Mr. McCready to the
dame church. Of course, both could
not officiate. Mr. Swinney was in
possession; if, therefore, Mr. Mc
Cfeady were to occupy, he must do it
by first ridding the pulpifr of Mr.
Swinney. Mr. Swinney did not choose
to retire. "What, then, was to be
done? Our executioner of the laws,
GOT. Fletcher, answered this ques?
tion, and in the way we shall briefly
state. About two weeks agc, he sent
an order to Gen. Pratt, commanding
North of thc Missouri, to take pos?
session and hold that church for thc
use of Mr? McCready. Gen. Pratt
\ ordered Col: Denny to execute the
order, and he did so. Col. Denny
. demanded the keys of the ohurch of
Mr. Swinney, and had them turned
over to Mr. McCready, who is now
the incumbent! We understand and
are informed that thc building in
question belorgs to the Methodist
Church, South, and is lawfully at
their disposal. At any rate, they
were in possession. Yet thc Governor,
with a sublime audacity, (which, how?
ever, he does not show in St. Louis,)
proceeds to oust the lawful owners or
possessors at the point of the bayo?
net.-St. Louis Republican.
A Texas editor bows thus grace?
fully: "We are equally indebted to
two lady friends, who shall be name?
less in this-though they have very
attractive names-for a magnificent
cake, iced and decorated with roses,
lilies, crape, myrtle and evergreens,
and a goblet of sherbet, such as we
read of in tho tales of the Arabian
Nights. We hope they may fold their
wings, and conclude to remain on
this earth, and-feed us in this style

FELLOW-CITIZEXS: After mneli hesitation,
I have consented to be put in nomination
for yonr Representative in the Congress of
the United States. I publislrthis Ard, be?
cause the District is so largo and the time
before th? election so short tliat I could
not, if I desired, canvass tho District. If a
canvass wons possible, however, I do not
think it becoming or desirable. In my
judgment, this is no time for a scramble for
office. It seems to me that no one proper?
ly impressed with the solemnity of the
crisis, and the delicacy and importance of
the duties to be discharged, could seek the
position merely for the gratitieation of per?
sonal ambition. For myself,! declare that
I have no wish but to servo the State.
In 1788, South Carolina, through a con?
vention of her people, boeaine one of thc
United States. She remained a member of
the Union until December, I860,, when,
through another convention of her people,
she repealed the Ordinance of 1788, seced?
ed from the United States, and with cer?
tain other sister States entered into another
government known as tho Confederate
Government. Wc believed tha^ we had the
right to secede and. that "our gecurwy re?
quired ifs exercise in co-operation with our
Southern sisters. South Carolina, in 1KT>2,
proclaimed by solemn ordinance tho right
I of secession. It had long boen the settled
opinion of the Statt? that shcjw&s sovereign
and entitled to all the rights of sovereignty.
Sile asserted self-government in ord'Wto
secure her institutions and principles from
great evils, believed to bo mirri incut. Se?
cession was in the nature of a proceeding
quia limel. It was conceived in tho spirit ol
self-preservation-not to injure others hut
to save ourselves. It cannot bo necessary
to say that I am one ol' those who believe
that it was an honest effort for honorable
purposes. The United States Government
denied the right of secession and waged
war upon the Confederate States, which
stood upon the d?fensive. A terrible wai
?if invasion and .desolation followed, arie1
finally the Confederate States were over?
whelmed bv force of numbera and dissolved
At the end of the war the State pf Soutt
Carolina found the Confederacy broken up
her citizens who survived the terrible
ordeal exhausted and impoverished, he;
institutions destroyed, and the whole conn
try occupied by the military forces of th?
United States." Under these painful cir
cumstances, the President of the Unijpt
States invited tho States lately composm;
the Confederacy to rc-organizo their gov
ornments and restore then*connection wit]
the Constitution anti Government of tnt
United States, upon certain conditions, th<
principal of which was .au aequiesence ii
tilt; noolition of slavery, which had beoi
accomplished by the military authorities
Thc State, wisely iii my judgment, respond
ed favorably to the invitation. It is tra
that thc mere issue of battle does not prov
right any more, than did thc old "wager c
battle:" but it docs prove power which can
not he disregarded. A Provisional Gover
nor was appointed, who called another con
vention ol'* the people, which has latel
?repealed the Ordinance of Secession, an
by an article hi the St ato Constitutor
recognized the abolition of slavery and pr<
hibited its re-establishment. By repea
inc that of Secession, thc Ordinance c
1788, through which South Carolina ht
came, a member of the Union, was f?,>
facto revived, and ve are. this day .in th
Union precisely as we became in 1788 an
remained up to 18G0.
We are now in avery anomalous positioi
Relying irpon tho good faith anti patriot
intentions of the President of the Unite
States, we have done all that was require
of us to restore our old relations to tl
Constitution and tho Union; but still v.
have not been received into fellowship ?
Washington. That important part of tl
plan of reconstruction remains yet to 1
accomplished. It is understood that
party will oppose the President's plan
reorganizing thc States and giving to the
equality of rights, and will insist upon st:
farther despoiling and emailing thc Statt
of t he South as conquered provinces. Th
radical fanatical party opposed our Jeavb
the Union, and now they oppose our retilr
ing to it. When wc were in t he Union, tin
abused us on account of slavery. Tin
waged war upon ?is because we" tried
separate from them, and now that we pr
pose to returii?without slavery, tkey st
object. In this emergency,*be State nee
thc assistance of all her true men. Mn
remains to bc done, and not the least is
secure a prudent, faithful and patriot
representation in Congress, to assist a:
forward the work of restoration which t
State has commenced. 1 arrogate no*
myself fitness to form part of such a rc
resentati?n, but friends have urged mc ft
wartl, and if you are willing to trv me
will give my best efforts.
In some respects, wc arcat the beginni
of our policy, as if we were a new St!
about to assume new relations with c
sister States; but we must never allow oi
selves to forget that in other respects
are an old State-a Stato having ante
dents-a name to maintain and a history
preserve. ?Whatever may betide us in *t
uncertain future, tuc past, ai least, ia* oc?
cur e. South Carolina ha? never swerved
from the path of honor, as she conceived it.
We have a record of which none need bo
ashamed; and when any apostate son ef
hers disclaims or disparages it, may she
cast him "out as unworthy of her. The
devotion of every true son of thc S'ate
adheres in adversity as well as in pros?
perity-is loval through evil KS well as
through good report; and in t?t midst of !
the greatest misfortunes, "sticket ii closer
than a brother."
After the delegations from tl?? Southern
States shall have been received* into Con?
gress, many delicate and impoj tant duties
will devolve upon them, especially io refer?
ence to thc freedmen of the South, and the
control which Congress, or a party in Con?
gress, may desire still to exercise ovei?
them. It may not be improper, in this
connection, to say that, whdst I have ap?
proved the course of thc State in scckiug
to restore h?r old relation? with the Govern?
ment of the United States, it has heon upon
the faitli and expectation that the State, as
soon as reconstructed, is to have entire
control ol' the wlu.de subject of her domes?
tic affairs. The State, and thc Stat? alone, i
must bc left to decide to whom she will
give thc right'of suffrage < r other political
rights. A new code noir must be enacted !
to protect and govern the populanon lamely
made free-to prcvont idleness, vagrancy,
pauperism and cftnio. I am not prophet
' enough to foresee whether we can succeed, i
but I solemnly believe it will be impossible
to live in thc country at all unless the State 1
has exclusive control ol' the whole subject.
I lowe hopi- that thiswillbcpermittee}, and
I "think it is in accordance with our inte?
rests and, true policy to sustain thc Presi
dent and thc Democratic party in their
effort*tu restore the States tot-ieir posi?
tion of equality and to give thuin equal
rights in the Government.
With these views, if the voters of the
District think that I can serve them or the
State in this critical emergency, ] will do
my best for them; but I have too high a
sense of my own incompetency and of the
difficulties and responsibilities of the posi?
tion, to solicit it Itv a personal canvass.
