The diffiucult tank of selecting dele
gates to the Natianal Convention, we cxpe-
I rience some of thc same embarrassment
in speaking, as the committee to which was
committed thc duty t.f harmonising the
views of delegates from thc differcst dis
tricts, must have received. I'nder the in
structions of the Convention, and with a
view to approximate to the views of those
who desired a choice by Districts, the com
mittee was required to consult with thc re
presentatives of the Districts; and in most
cases the latter presented their candidates
in writing to thc committee Arias.
This ostentatious aflectatiot; of fairness is
doubtless appreciated by those for whom it
was intended. What sheer mockery to talk
about " approximating to the views of those
who desired a choice by Districts," wb u
the entire Delegation are sent to Charleston
muzzled and with collar about their necks,
and only allowed to act " as a unit" under

whether they are represented iu it at all.

Charleston if there was not a single "Hard"
