FELLOW-CITIZEXS: After much hesitation,
I have consented to be put in nomination
for your Represcatativc in thc Congress of
thc United States. I publish this card, be?
cause the District is eo large and the time
before the election so short that I could
not, if I desired, canvass the District. If a
canvass were 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 thc solemnity cf thc
crisis, and the delicacy and importance of
the duties to be discharged, could seek the
position merely for tho gratification of per?
sonal ambition. For myself, I declare that
I have no wish but to serve thc State.
In 1788, South Carolina, through a con?
vention of her people, became one of thc
United States. Sbe remained a member ol
thc Union until December, 1860, when,
through another convention of her people,
she repealed the Ordinance of 1788, seced?
ed from the United State?, and with cer?
tain other sister States entered into a?othci
government, known as the Confederate
Government. We believed that we had thc
right to secede and; tkatjour security re?
quired its exercise in co-operation with oui
Southern sisters. South Carolina, in 1852
proclaimed by solemn ordinance thc right
of secession. It had long been thc scttlec
opinion of tho State that she was sovercigr
and entitled to all the rights of sovereignty
She asserted self-government in order tc
secure her institutions and principles fron
great evils, believed to be imminent. Se
cession was in the nature of a proceeding
quia timei. It waa conceived in thc spirit of
self-preservation-not to injure others but
to save ourselves. Ii cannot be necessary
to say that I am ono of those whaibelieve
that it was an honest effort for honorable
Surposes. The United States Government
emed the right of secession and waged
war upon the Confederate States, which
stood upon the defensive. A terrible war
of invasion and desolation followed, and
finally the Confederate States were over?
whelmed by force of numbers and dissolved.
At the end of the war the State of South
Carolina found the Confederacy broken up,
her citizens who survived the terrible
ordeal exhausted and impoverished, her
institutions destroyed, and the wholo coun?
try occupied by the military forces of the
United States. Under these painful cir?
cumstances, the President of the United
States invited the Stares lately composing j
the Confederacy to re-organize their gov?
ernments and restore then* connection with
the Constitution and Government bf the
United States, upon certain conditions, the
principal of which wa? ar. acquiesence in
the abolition of slavery, whicn had been
accomplished by the military authorities.
The State, wisely in my judgment, respond?
ed favorably to "the invitation. It is true
that the mere issue of battle does not prove
right any more than did the old "wager of
battle;" but it does provo power which can?
not be disregarded. A Provisional Gover?
nor was appointed, who called another con?
vention of' the people, whicn has lately
repealed the Ordinance of Secession, and
by an article in the State Constitution,
recognized thc abolition of slarery and pro?
hibited its re-establishment. By repeal
in?r that of Secession, thc Ordinance of
1788, through which South Carolina be?
came a member of the Unian, was ipso
facto revived, and wc aro this' day in the
Union precisely as wc became in 178S and
remained up to 1860.
Wc are now in avery anomalous position.
Belying upon tho good faith and patriotic
intentions of the President of the United
States, we have done all that wis required
of us to restore our old relations to the
Constitution and the Union; bat 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 opposa the President's plan of
? reorganizing the Statesand giving to them
equality of rights, and will insist upon still
farther"despoiling and crushing the States
of tho South as conquered provinces. This
radical fanatical party opposed our leaving
the Union, and now they oppos? our return?
ing to it. When we were in tho Union," they
abused us on account of slavery. They
waged war upon us because we trlod t?
separate from'them, and now that we pro?
pose to return without slavery, they still
object. In this emergency, theStateneeds
the assistance of all her true men. Much
remains to bc done, and not the least is to
secure a prudent, faithful and patriotic
representation in Congross, to assist and
forward the work of restoration which tho
State has commenced. I arrogate not to
myself fitness to form part of such a rep?
resentation bat friends have urged me for?
ward, and if you are willing to try me, I
will give my best efforts.
In some respects, we are at the beginning
of our policy, as if we were a new State
about to assume . new relations with our
sister States; but we must never allowour
sclves to forget that in other respects we
are an old State-a Stato having antece?
dents-a name to maintain and a history te
preserve. Whatever may betide us ir. the
uncertain future, the past, at least, ii se?
cure. South Carolina has never swerved
from the path of honor, as she conceived it.
We have a record of which none need bi
ashamed; and when any apostate son ei
hers disclaims er disparages it, may she
cast him out as unworthy of her. Th?
devotion of -every true so'n of tho State
adheres in adversity as well as in pros?
perity-is loyal through evil as well ai
through ?Ood report; and in the midst o!
the greatest misfortun.es, "sticketh closci
than a brother."
After the delegations from the Souther-;
States shall have been received into Con
gress,many delicate and important duties
will devolve upon them, especially in refer
euee to the freedmen of the South, and th<
control which Congress, or a pa-ty in Con
gross, may desire still to exercise ove:
them. It may not be improper, in this
connection, to say that, whilst I have ap
proved the course of the State in scekinj
to restore ber old relations with the Govern
mont of the United States, it has been ivyoi
thc faith anti expectation that thc; State, a:
s<?>n as reconstructed, is to have er.tir
control of the whole subject of her domes
tic .muirs. The State, and the State alone
must be left to decide to whom she wi!
give the right of suffrage or other politics
rights. A new code noir must be enactei
to protect and govern the population latel
made free-to prevent idleness, vagrancy
pauperism ami crime. I am not prophe
enough to foresee whether wc can succeet
but I solemnly believe it will be impossibl
to live in the country at all unless tho Stat
has exclusive control of the whole subject
I have hope* that this will bo permitted, an
I think it is in accordance with our inte
rests and true policy to sustain the Pres
dont and the Democratic , ;rty in the:
efl'orts to restore the- State s to their pos
tion of equality sud to give them eqm
rights in thc Government.
With these views, if tho voters of tl:
District think that I can serve them or tl
State in this critical emergency, I wUl d
my best for them; but I have too high
sense ot ruy own incompetency and of tl
difficulties and responsibilities of thc pos
tion, to solicit it br a personal canvass.
