FELLOw-GmzENs: After much hesitation,
j. have consented tn he put in nomination
for your Repr?sent?t ire in tho Congress ot
tlic United States. I publish this card, be?
cause the District is so large and tho time
before the election sr? short that I could
not, if I desired, canvass the District. If a
canvass were possible, however, I do not
think it Tiftcoming or desirable. In my
judgment, this is notinic for a scramble for
office. It seems to ni? that no one prope r?
ly impressed with the solemnity of thc
crisis, and Che delicacy and importance of
the duties to be discharged, could ?eel: the
position merely lorine gratification .f por
sor.al ambition. For myself, I declare that
I have no wish but to iurve the State.
In 1788, South Carolina, through a con?
vention of her people* became ono of th .
United States. She remained a member rf
the' Union until December, 1880, 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she repealed the Ordinance of 1788, seced?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 enterod into another
, government known as the Confederate
Government. We believed that we had tho
right to secede and, thaV.our security re?
quired its exercise ii: co-operation with our
Southern sister?. South Carolina, in 1852,
j proclaimed by solemn ordinance the right
? of secession. It had long been the settled
opinion of tin; State that she was sovereign
I and entitled to all the rights of sovereignty.
She asserted self-government in order to
secure her institutions and principles from
I great evils, believed to be imntinent. Se
' cession was in the nature of a proceeding
quin timet. It waseonceived in the spirit of
self-preservation-not to injure, others but
j to save ourselves. It cannot be necessary
to say that I ain ono of thoso who believe
that it was an honest effort for honorable
' purposes. The United States Government
denied the right of secession and waged
war upon tho Confederate Slates, which
stood upon the defensive. A terrible war
of invasion and desolation followed, ami
?i>?Io th? Confederate States were over?
whelmed by fof co of numbers and dissolved.
At thc end of tho v.-ar the State o? South
Carolina found the Confederacy broken up,
her citizens who survived the terrible
ordeal exhausted and impoverished, her
institutions destroyed, and the whole coun?
try occupied by the military forces of the
United States.- Under these painful cir?
cumstances, the President of the United
Stale s iuvited the States ? lately composing
the Confederacy to re-organize then- gov?
ernments and restore their connection with
the Constitution and Government of the
United States, 117101? certain conditions, tho
principal of which was air aeqniesence in
the abolition of slavery, which had been
accomplished by the military authorities.
The State, wisely in my judgment, respond?
ed favorably to the invitation. It is true
that the mero issue of battle does not prove
right any more than did the old "wager of
battle;" but it does prove power which can?
not ho disregarded. A Provisional Gover?
nor was appointed, who called another con?
vention of the people, which has lately
repealed the Ordinanc e of Secession, .incl
by an article in the State Constitution,
recognized the abolition of slavery and pro?
hibited its re-establishment, liv repeal?
ing that of Secession, the Ordinance of
1788, through which South C&rolina be?
came a member of the Union, was ipso
facia revived, and we are this day in the
Union .precisely as we became in 1783 and
remained up to 1860. *
We ari! now in .a very anomalous position.
Helving Upon tho good faith and patriotic
intentions of the President of the United
States, we have done all that was required
of us to rowtor*) our old relations to the
Constitution and the Union; but still we
have not been received into fellowship at
Washington. That important'part of the
plan of reconstruction remains yet to be
accomplished. It is understood that a
party will oppose the President's plan of
' reorganizing the States and giving to them
equality of rights, and will insist upon still
farther"despoiling and crushing the States
of the South as conquered provinces. This
radical fanatical party opposed our leaving
the Union, and now they oppose our return?
ing to it. When we were in the Union, they
abused ns on account ot slavery. They
waged war upon un. because we tried to
separate from them, and now that we pro?
pose to return without slavery, they still
object. In this emergency, the State needs
the assistance of all her true men. Much
remains to be done, and not tho least is to
secure a prudent, faithful and patriotic
representation in Congress, to assist and
forward tho work of restoration which the
State has commenced. I arrogate not to
myself litncss to form part of such a rep- j
resentation, but friends haw urged me for- j
ward, and if yon are willing to try me, I j
?will give my best efforts.
In HOMO respects, we are at the beginning !
of our policy, as if we wero a new State I
about to assume new relations with our |
sister States; but we must never allow our- I
selves to forget that in other respects we |
are an old State-a Statu having anteee- '
dents-a name to maintain and a history to
preserve. Whatever may betide us in the j
uncertain future, the past, at least, is se
cure. South Carolina has never swerved :
from tho path of honor, as she conceived it.
We have a record of which none need be
ashamed; and v-beu any apostate son ef
he;s disclaims or disparages it, may she
cast him out as unworthy of her. ' The
devotion of every true son of the State
adheres in- adversity as well as ii*, pros- |
pority-ia loyal through evil as well as !
through good report; and in thc- midst of j
the greatest misfortunes, "sticketh closer
than a brother.''
'After the.delegations from thc- Southern
Status shall have Leen received into Con?
gress, many delicate and important duties j
will devolve upon them, especially in refer- '
euee to the freedmen of the South, and the ?
control which Congress, or a party in Con- !
gross, may desire still te exercise over!
them. It may not bs improper, in this
connection, to rtay that, whilst I have ap?
proved the course of the State in seeking
to restore her old relations with th? Govern?
ment of the United States, it has been upon
the faith and expectation that thoState, as
soon as reconstructed, is to have entire
control of the whole subject of her domes?
tic affairs. The State, and the SUte alone,
must be left to decide to whom she will
give the right of suffrage or other political
rights. A new code ryiir nhist be enacted
to protect and govern the population lately
made free-to prevent idleness, vagrancy,
pauperism anet crime. 1 am not prophet
enough to foresee whether wc can succeed,
but I solemnly believfe it will be impossible;
to live in the country at all unless thc State
has exclusive control of the whole subject.
I have; hope that this will be permitted, and
I think it is in accordance with our inte?
rests and true policy to sustain the Presi?
dent and tin: Democratic party in their
efforts to restore the States to their posi?
tion of equality and to giro them equal
rights in the Government,
With these views, if the voters of the
District think that I cm serve them or the
State in this critical emergency, I will do
my best for them; but I have too high a
sense of my own incompetency and ol the
difficulties and responsibilities of the posi?
tion, to solicit it by a personal canvass.
