Mr. Inglis offered a resolution that a

Resolved, That individual- members

were moderate, tho saoakcrs stating that
they acted by the authority of thu Gover
nors of their respective States in accor

ing other matters for tho consideration of
tho Committee which may bo presented to
Mr. Barnwell Tho Committee will
havo tho right to report on tho wholo sub
ject. Everything should first bo submit
ted to the Committee.
Mr. Inglis Tho object will bo accom
plished without the amendment.
Mr. Rhctt That Committee can origi
nate anything with itself; for instance, an
address that comes from any ono of this
body will havo a fair consideration.
Mr. Choves Tho great aim aud object
is to avoid every side of tho question in
which there may be a division. We have
proof this evening that there is but a
single voice w'ithiu tho Stato of South
Carolina. Tho business of the Convention
will be expedited by confining it to seces
sion. Our first aim is to break tho chain
of this Union. Tho next point will bo to
study tho direction.
Mr. Ilaync Tho proposition, as I un
doristaud it, is that a Committee of twenty
one shall bo appointed, to tako into con
sideration tho variou3 measures that may
be introduced for the consideration of this
Convention ; that they shall receive all
schemes, from whatever quarter they may
come, and shall havo tho privilogo to do
whatever pertains to tho business of the
Convention, with a view of recommending
to this Convention whatsoever action they
may sco proper to for its consideration or
proposition for discussion. So far as our
separation is concerned, Mmply tho scccs
sion of South Caroliua from tho present
Government, I tako it that there has been
a sufficient expression of opinion hero upon
this occasion to guido that Committee.
Secession is a subject upon which all a
greo unanimously. Let tho Uomuiittco bo
composed greater intellect.
Mr. Brady Let thero bo scparato work
Mr. Gregg said committees won) ap
