1 manifested to know the opinions and prel- rr.ore danrer of our beincj successfully as
I erences of the candidates on certain subjects I sailed by other n.eans than by Legislation,
to which their attention has been called, and it jj by agitation, by getting up what the
hav-ng no deposition to conceal my scnti-j fanatics call a holy excitement. In this
ments 011 any subject of policy, whether of j.way, the peaceful relation between master
our own Slate or the Federal Government, ja3d slave will be more effectually- disturbed
i shall proceed briefly to answer the inter-'and our lives and property jeopardised, than
rogatories propounded.
1st. Are you in favor or oppossed to
National Bank?
To this my answer is: If the mterroga-
.tor meant a fationai juann on me
I of the old United States Bank, I say
. a . V k t
No. If he meant such a National mns as
would serve the ends of the Government as
a ssfe depository, and a medium of transfer
of the public tunds, witnoui tne power to
effect the rights of a State against its will
r consent, then my answer is m the afhrrn-
trve. Uanainc? nas oern interwoven wiwi
nd become an important part of the policy
of our State Government: the
owes
ol ""'
ation. I should object to any
a National Bank that did not afford sufu-
rknt protection to the State Banks. Without
the necessarv cuarantees,!! our own snoua oe
cramped nd crippled In their ope rations, as to
be compelled to wind up business, how would
our Bonds be discharged.' It will probably be
answered by taxation. God forbid we should
ever be driven to try the experiment.
2d. Are you in favor, or opposed to the
applicatioa'of the National revenues to the
Banking institutions of the country?
I am directly opposed to the application
of the National revenues to either private
stock Banks, or to a National Bank. 1 be
lieve that no revenue ought to be raised, or
enn be consistently with the principles of our
cor. federation, for any other purpose tha:i
to meet the current legitimate expenditures
r f the Government, and if when collected. U
i apphed to a different object, it is in vio
la tioi of good faith.
3d. Arc you in favor of a National Trea
nry disconnected with, and independent of
Tanks?
I j, tjt Xational Treasury to have r.o
further connection with a Bank or Banis,
thin may be necessary to safe keeping and
trr.r.rr.ission of the public funds.
V,h. . Are you in favor, or opposed to well

At present Mr. Clay is the object of the
most friendly regard of the Abolitionists,
whilt they show the most virulent hatred
to Mr. Van Buren they accuse the latter
of being too favoi able to our interest, whilst
the forner.if elected, will be indebted to
them at least, for their assistance. Hf sym
pathies will be more with them. His efforts

the Abolitionists, yet I never have heard or
read an addres3deiived by a member of the
Colnization Sxxriety but was fraught with
aboliticn; both societies have the same ob
ject in view, they only differ in Lhe means.
One for effecting it gradually, the other by
holy excitement, by violence; they are both
dangerou? to us. Mr. Van Buren never has
been identified with themorements of either
of those Socle ties borrowed from the Amis
des iVan'j. Again, Mr. Clay was once the
eloquent advocate for extending the Louis
iara c'aim to the Rio del Norte. He is now
understood to be opposed to the annexation
of Texas to the United States. The annex
ation cf Texas would be a surer guarantee to
theSoath in the addition of fouror six Sen
ators, than any thing else that could be done
or said in our tavor; the abolitionists to a man
oppose such annexation.
On our other great interest, a direct ex
port aid import trade, I consider Mr. Van
Buren's position as decidedly more favora
ble to us than Mr. C!ay From the oppo
sition of the former to a Bank, we have a
guarantee that if one is established he will be
disposed to restrict its powers, to prevent
its cramping the operations of the State in
stitutions. If wholesome restrictions should
not be imposed, it will destroy our State
Banksj if it should he so inclined it will mo
nopolize the whole cotton trade, an I paral
ize individual etrterprse to th rcia of our
merchants. - It will draw sll negotiations for
Cotton through New York, and command

caused by the concentration of Baa?
in that section. As a proof of this, it may
be mentioned that the imports into South
Carolina in 1774, (before our national inde
pendenCet ana" when the two sections came
into fair corriMi013) amounted to three
times as mcft as the imports into New
York f'5 same year, ari ve times as much
as the imports into South i-arolina in 18364
If they can again be brought hzto fair com
petition on their natural advantages the remit
tcillbe the same. The inevitable result of
this concentration of Bank capital ana cred
it, has been to build up and enrich one sec
tion of the Lnion at the expense of the!
other and it has been aptly remarked tiiat i
we cannot purchase a yard of cloth or a
pocket knife of English manufacture without
paying tribute to our Northern brethern.
This has become so apparent of late, that
it has aroused most of the Southern States

tion which cives them .their bread. As is the ! Among the great number of examples of
case with almost all preat projects havin m Masonic virtue ot governing the passions,
view the public sood, there have not be'en I to wh,ch 1 m'Sht refer you, brethren, none is
wanting men to oppose this and it has al-lnore conspicuous than uhan that ot our il
readv been denounced as sectional and vi- Muitrious brother, the imtnortal W ashington,
sionary. That our northern brethren should
so denounce it, is no more than we should
have expected but among us who oppose it,
is truly surprising. The people are, how
ever, becoming convinced of its importance;
and the day is not far distant when trade
will find its natural channel, when South
ern sea-port cities and our own river towns
Natchez and Vicksburg, (or perhaps the
City of Mississippi) will do our entire im
porting and exporting business.
To aid in this great work, by building up
Southern credit to free the South from
abolitioti influence and the oppressinn of
Northern commerce, is the object of the
Bank proposed in the communication 'Old
Souih. The plan proposed is an admirable
one, and no doubt, with a few slight altera
tions, would answer all the purposes inten
ded. Beisdes aiding the great enterprise of
Southern trade, its notes will be taken at
par value throughout the country, and, orga
nized on the plan proposed will always be
redeemed in gold and silves. It will give
stability and credit to our State institution,
revive business, increase the price of cur
I roduct and lessen the price of our impor
ted goods, by taking off the large profits
now made by Northern merchants. -
For the want of a more plausible objec
tion, some argue against this measure that it
creates too strong a sectional feeling, and
that it may tend to a dissolution of the Un
ion. Our Northern brethren may engage,
by whole Stales and communities, in an un
holy crusade aganist our domestic institution
may, and are now threatening to demand
another exorbitant tariff, and no one calls
them sectional: But when we think of en
tering into fair co.m PETrrtojf with them for
our own trade, we are called sectional, and
are accused of attempting to d issdve tk
Union f Shme on such reasoning.
Why is it thtourown State is not moving
in tl.is great work? It is not surely that

who was "first in war, first in peace, and
first in the hearts of kis countrymen. Of
the excellence of whose character a foreigner
has justly said that, "Caesar was brave,
Scipio was continent, and Hannibal was
patient; but.it was reserved for Washington
to unite them all in one. and like the lovely
chief tP curve of the Grecian artist to ex
hibit, in one clow cf associated beautv, thf
pride of every model, and the perfection of
every master. In the history of this cel
ebrated man, we find but one solitary in
stance where passion, for a time, gained the
uncontrolled ascendancy, o'er his mind
and that furnished the occasion for one of
the noblest acts of self-government which is
to be found on record. I allude fellow cit
izens, to an incident which I doubt not is fa
miliar to most of you. In the heat of po
litical debate with a Col. Payne of Alexan
dria, Washington grossly insulted him, and
uas promptly knocked down by Payne on
the spot. Here was an occasion where a
man of ordinary or weak mind, would have
thought of nothing but revenge. But Wash
ington applied his masonic principles to the
case. . lie endeavored to make his passions,
and prejudices coincide with the line cf his
duty. He held the scales of public justice in
equal poise, weighed himself in the balance
and found he was wanting; and his magnan
imous soul did not hesitate to acknowledge
it. He sent for Peyne admitted his error
and sought v-econciiiatlon. Payne, from
that time, sl Nv-yith the nobleness of the
act, became )-C his warmest friends
through life. v-' N;
Fellow citizens, let uv this act.
See what obstacles laid iu -v y way of his
duty? He had to overcome his personal
pride of feeling his desire of revenge his
passion ofangar, and all regard io the false
notions of honor prevalent ia the worf 1. But
his powerful intellect enabled him to sur
mount all these difficulties, and to leave us
a yirtpsus example which, in its moral sub
Uzr.ity is net surpassed by any act recorded
ia t!.5 Ustcry of mankind. Let it not be

often the arm of man. raised in violence
against his fellow being, has been stayed by
its benign counsels.how by itsmfiuence the
bonds of fraternal feeling, knit society to

a great sea-port, it has a most healthy and
salubrious climate; the pure saline breeze
retruning daily from the ocean, renders it
peculiarly del-ghtful as a place cf summer
residence; the best of water abounds in
springs, or may be obtained in wells by dig
ging 15 teet, one hundred yards from, the
salt tide; it is the nearest good harbor to the
Mississippi, and W est; Lhe site proposed, we
kno;v from a visit to the spot last winter, is
high and beautiful. Should the contem
plated Railroad be completed to Brandon,
and we belive there is no doubt out that it
will be,) it vTillsooa beexteneed to this sec
tion ot the btate. Anotner road may be
completed to Natchez, or some point on the
river, and thus the products, cot only of a
large-part of our State, but a portion of the
rich products of the West, will find an out
let at the City of the Gulf
Improvements have already been com
menced; a large hotel has completed, and
another is shortly to go up; wharves, steam
mills, &c are building, and an interest is
felt by many of our citizens in the success
of the scheme.
May we not look forward to the cay
when a great citv will spring up m this hith
erto barren but highly favored portion of
our State! W ho will et bounds to t;e pros
perity of the great Cotton State, when she
has her own fine sea-port, and a direct for-
ttqitirer.
