The war settled the policy of the
government as to secession. Under
that settlement, which is accepted by
the South, no state can now withdraw
from the Union. Hut the sword can
not determine a question that belongs
to a different arena from the battlefield.
I speak the sober truth of a convic
tion founded upon a study of history,
when I say, that South Carolina and
her sister stales had the ri^ht to secede
from the Union at the time when se
cession took place. The stubborn facts
upon which I hase this affirmation, I
wish now to enumerate.
Prior to 177(1, there were upon the
American continent thirteen colonies
subject to the English orown. On the
fourth of .Inly in that year, represen
tatives of these colonies, 'in General
Congress assembled,' issued to t he world
their manifest, known as the D. dura
tion of IndepenoeilCC In that instru
ment thoy deolared that "these United
Colonies are, and of right ought to he,
free and Independent States; that they
are absolved from all allegiance to the
British crown, and that all political
connection between theill and t he state
of Great Britain is, and ought tobe,
When final victory had perched up
on their banner, King George, naming
each state, from New Hampshire to
Georgia, acknowledged them to be
"free, sovereign a n ?1 independent
States," just what they had declared
t hemselevs to he.
it is important to observe the mean
ing of the word "State" hero We are
accustomed to apply to it a localized
meaning, peculiar to America. We
think of if as indicating simply an in
tegral part of a nation. But its true
signification in diplomatic litera
ture is that of commonwealth, or body
politic, or Nation. You notice that
the framers of the Declaration of
independence, in the language quoted
above, called Great Britain a state,
and I hey were right in doing.so. When,
therefore, they declared each one of
these thirteen colonies to he a state,
and when King George granted their
contention, they and he meant that
each of I hem was a commonwealth,
possessing absolute sovereignty, just
as Great Britain. Now, the all-impor
tant question is, "Did they part with
their sovereignty when they became
united under a federal government?"
This question can he answered only by
the history of thattime. What answer
does that history give? Is It equivocal,
or is it definite? If definite, what is its
One fact alone, it seems to me, is
SUlllciently decisive, though there is
a b ii n ?laut corroborative testimony.
This fact is, that when they gained
their independence, and the sovereign
ty of eaoll was acknowledged by King
George, and his acknowledgement ac
cepted by them, they had already
formed a federal government. In 1777,
they had adopted an instrument, des
ignated by them as the "Articles of
confederation and perpetual union be
tween the states of New Hampshire,
Massachusetts Bay, Rhode island and
Providence Plantation, Connect hut.
New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania,
Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North
Carolina, South Carolina ami Georgia".
These articles were the basis of the
Constitution, under which we are now
living. After a few years they were
found to be inadequate for the objects
contemplated by the confederation.
At the instance of the legislature of
Virginia, a convention was called,
which met in Philadelphia, May nth,
17H7, "for the sole and express pur
pose," 11 * stipulated in the call, "of re
vising the Ar titles of Confederation."
The result of that convention was our
present Constitution, except t h e
amendments which have been adopted
since riiis instrument was submited,
for adoption or rejection, not to the
people of the whole country as a unit,
but to the several States, with the pro
vision that when nine states should
ratify it, the union should be formed
between them If four states chose to
stay out of the Union, there was no
claim of authority to compel them to
Tin debates held in t he various con
ventions adopting the Constitution, so
far as they have been preserved, show
how zealous were the men of that day
in defending the rights of the states.
John Marshall, afterwards Chief Jus
tice of the United States, when fears
were expressed in the Virginia conven
tion that the government was about to
become a consolidated republic, voiced
t he general sentiment of t he day when
he said, "It is the people that give
power, and can take it hack."
The adopting acts of those conven
tions are very instructive Massachu
setts, in order to "guard against an un
due administration ef the I'ederal gov
ernment," proposed certain amend
ments, the first being, "1 hat it espec
ially declares that all powers not
expressly delegated by the aforesaid
Constitution, are reserved to the sever
al states, to be by them exercised."
This afterwards became, with some
changes of phraseology, the Tenth
The act of tho convention of South
Carolina contains the words, "The
sovereignty of the seyeral states;" also
this section : ''This convention doth
also declare, that no sect ion or para
graph of this said Constitution war
rants a construction that, the states do
not retain every power not expressly
relinquished bv thomj anil vested hy
fchein in the General Government of the
Union." They did not relinquish their
The Virginia convention declared
that "the powers granted under the
Constitution, being derived from the
people of the United States, njay he
resumed by them, wlieqevcr I he same
shall be perverted to their injury or
Oppressiop. Whom did they mean by
"tue people of the United States5,
hut the people of t|)G seyera| stated,
noting tluough t ii.-11? M-vcral conven
tions, and entering into what Massa
chusetts properly called "an explicit
and solemn compact with each other."
Now, It is undeniable, that the union
was intended to he perpetual; but it
was also expected that the states
should faithfully conform to t heir com
pact with each other. Just as the vio
lation of any agreement hy one of the
forties thereto releases the other, so, a
Sllnre to comply with the constitution
by any one of the states would absolve
the others from tho obligation to main
tain a union with it. And whenever
the Federal (lovernment should fail to
enforce the provisions of Um Constitu
tion, declared by itse|f to he "the su
preme law of the land," to tho injury
of any state, hy what fight could H^t
sovereign state be held longer bound
to remain in the union?
The right of secession was early main
tained hy representative men of New
England. In 1811, when the bill for
the admission of Louisiana was under
discussion, a member of Congress from
Massachusetts said that the passage of
the bill would "free the Stales from
their moral obligation," and that "as
it WOUld be the right of all, so it would
be the duty of some, to prepare for a
Again, in 1k11, only sixteen years
before South Carolina seceded, the
legislature of Massachusetts, protest
ing against the annexation of Texas,
passed a resolution, declaring that such
a step on the part Of Congress might
"tend to drive these States (New Eng
land) into a dissolution of the I nioii."
Did those sixteen years make any
difference as to the right of secession V
If the New England States had that
right in lsil, why did they deny it to
South < larolina in ih<h? ?
The expediency of secession is not
a matter that needs to he discussed.
The results of the war are doubtless as
Providentially ordered. God reigns,
and all is well beoause Ho reigns. The
right of secession is a different thing
from its expediency at any particular
time, and to establish the right, and
then to show that there was SOIUO rea
I son for its exercise, is all that is needed
to relieve the war between the States
front the odium east upon it by the
Federal Government in calling it "The
War of the Rebellion." It was neither
rebellion nor civil \v;ir, hut a war be
tweet) tWO unions of Confederated
States, each of which unions had the
right to exist.
Now let me briefly speak of the rea
sons that led to secession.
Slavery, whether fortunately or un
fortunately, was recognized in i he < !on
stitution . Article IN', Section *J, pro
vides that "no person held to service or
labor in one State, under the laws t here
of, esoap'llg into another, shall, in con
sequence >f any law or regulation
therein, be discharged from such ser
vice or labor, but shall he delivered up
on claim of the party to whom such
service or labor may lie due."
For a long time, there was little or
no trouble in enforcing this provision.
Hut because of anti-slavery agitation.
Congress found it necessary to pass, in
I860, what was known as the Fugitive
Slave Law, by which the Stales were
enjoined to observe (Iiis part of their
on 111 pact. Thereupon several Northern
Legislatures nullified the act of Con
gress and this section of the Constitu
tion by enacting laws giving freedom
to all slaves escaping into their terri
tory. The South felt that if one part
of the Constitution were allowed thus
to he set at naught, no part ?>( it was
The agitation continued; .lohn
Brown's raid into Virginia took place ;
the Abolition party elected its candi
dates for Presidentand Vice-President
in 1800. This parly seemed bent upon
overriding the federal compact that
bound tho States together. It had come
into power.. There seemed no way of
enforcing the Constitution ; and South
Carolina, in consequence, withdrew
the powers delegated by her to the
"United states in Congress assembled,"
and took her place among t he Sovereign
States of the world. Others followed,
and with her formed a new Union,
which they called 'The Confederate
Stales of America." It may not have
been wise action ; it may have been
hasty ; but there was reason lor it in
the violation of a solemn agreement,
which had formed the basis of union
between these and Slates from which

?was the strewing of the solitary
grave of a Federal soldier, a inem
bor of tho'flrsl garrison after the
war, and who died at this place in
Onco upon a timo two frogs got into
a cool well. Accidentally they were
drawn up in a bucket of water by
pious milk dealer, who used the water
to give the milk more body(?.)
The frogs, very much astonished to
lind thomsolvos In a new element, had
to kick vigorously to keep their beads
above the milk. Finally one get tired
became disheartened, und said "Lots
give up and go to the bottom its no use
to kick any longer*' Tho other said
"Oh no; lots keep kicking as long as
wo can and sec what the outcome will
bo things may take a turn."
Hut the first frog gave up and sunk
to the bottom.
The other kept on kicking: and
when the milk man opened his can in
town the frog had kicked out a chunk
of butter big enough to lloat on and
was resting very comfortable.
