Charleston-, Dec. 20, 2 a. m. The Convention
ssembleJ yesterday morning at the prescribed hour.
Tje attendance was very Urge, the greater portion
- f the galleries being occupied by ladies.
An eloquent arid consolatpry prayer was offered
.y the Rev. Mr. Curtis, of Limestone Springs.
Several delegates not heretofore present appeared
slid look their seats the entire body now number
ng about one hundred and sixty.
The Chair submitted a letter from Hon. A. Iluger,
Postmaster at Charleston, proffering a messenger to
itcilitate the delivery of the mail from the conven-
Tho Chair also read a letter from Hon. John A.
Elmore, Commissioner from Alabama, enclosing a
telegram from Gov. Moore, of Alabama, as follows :
a Montgomery, Ala., Dec, 17.
To Bon. John A. Elmore: Tell the Convention
to listen to no proposition for compromise or delay.
This was received with applause by the spectators.
It was referred to the Committee on Preparing an
Vddress to the people of the Southern States.
J. Hobed offered a resolution, first, ordering the
.'resident of the Convention to appoint a cashier
.nd deputy cashier; second, ordering the clerk to
anperintend the printing of the convention Reports;
third, allowing newspaper reporters access to the
nail ; fourth, fixing It) o'clock as the hourof meeting ;

and their post offices ; sixth, for a journal of the

On motion of Mr. Keitt, the time for meeting was
ltercd to 11 o'clock.'
In the matter of reporters, Mr. Inglis moved that
nly those are to be admitted who are from South-
t Mr. Quatlebaum moved that each resolution be
oted on separately.
Mr. Logan moved to admit only two reporters.
Mr. L'hcvis moved to allow the President dtscre
"on in that matter, and then the question will lie
etween him and the editors.
Mr. Meniminger. Does the resolution apply to
eporters from the Southern States alone.
Mr. Simmons favored letting the reporters alone.
. Mr. Curtis thought we should be ashamed of
.hat we are doing.
The subject was dropped without action.
Mr. Bonneau move I that the Mayor of Charleston
e requested to furnUh policemen at the doors of
- le hall.
Mr. Richardson thoug . u hot that the Convcn
ion should sit with closed doors, at least to-day
Mr. Chcsnut thought this impracticable. The
ublic demanded, and it was essential to their satis
iction, that the doors should be open. Visitors,
hether from this State or a foreign State, would
link untavorably of such a proceeding. As some
uestions. however, would have to be discussed fin
itely, it would be best to get a hall where the body
ould sit with closed doors, effectually.
Mr. Magrath did not think the people of Charles
Mi meant to intrude. He did not think there were
in men in Charleston who would not sacrifice their
uriosity and strangle their desire to see, for the
tiefit of their State.
Mr. Richards thought neither friend nor foe should

;Mr. Middleton thought then they ought to close

The whole matter was then referred to the

Mr. Wardlow called for the reading of the address
f the Georgia Legislature.
Mr. Middleton. This is not a communication from
ie Legislature of Georgia, but merely from sundry
jrsons calling themselves members of the Legisla
tive of Georgia. May we not incur the risk from

rk, Pennsylvania, it, which would be bound to

iey shall not hear an- repulse from us.
Mr. Middleton said all the signatures were in the

Mr. Sinmis hoped the communications would only
The committees on commerce and postal arrange
ents were increased to thirteen, and the resolution
A resolution authorizing a committee in relation
the slaveholding States was adopted, and also a
immittce on foreign relations was also authoaized.
The third resolution, on commercial relations and
. ostal arrangement, was taken up.
Mr. McCready said, we .ire only proposing to
.ake a change for the people while in a transition
ate, and we must take especial care of our postal
Tangements. Our legislature now has no power,
.'e are the power, and may pass it, subject to their
jvfsion and alteration.
We are oblige! to take particular notice of it in
. relation to the United States. Your faith is
'edged, and 3-011 are not to break in upon arrange
ents which are necessary to the convenience of our
lizens, and the other Southern States. What will
e do without information ; it will breed ill. I
ink the convention is bound to make suitable ar
. ngements in relation to these matters. The Post
See Department can be carried right on, and we
all have the contractors to pay.
Mr. Dunkin took the floor, and made a long
eech on the subject.
Mr. Gregg said, we can dissolve our Union with
.e United States, and make arrangements lor con-
nuing the mail service with the Adams Company's

- the United States will have the matter in charge.

. SPECIAL' ORDER SECESSION I'OliTtOX OF THE PRESI
The-econd special order, being the secession por
in of the message of the President of the United
ates, came up. Mr. Magrath made a strong speech
the subject of the property of the United States
South Carolina, which will he reported at length
Mr. Miles had no idea that the President of the
nited States saw any necessity for reinforcing the
rjifications in the harbor. He would say frankly
iaf there should be no concealment among us. In
convention, ami consequently in a written commu
'cation, I know this to have been said : If you

itelligence reaches our people, and we will take
ire that it doe reach us, before he can reach the
rts, the forts will be taken, because it is necessary

ry Cass. At Fort Moultrie there were only 65

JLUSE8 JUSTIFY1.NO SOUTH CAROLINA'S WITHDRAWAL.
Mr. Memtninger moved the appointment,of a com
littee of seven, to draft a summary statement of
: he causes justifying South Carolina in withdrawing
om the Union. He said, at another time we can
resent to the whole world the cause justifying
, oath Carolina io leaving the Union. This he desired,
that it would dispel the idea that South Carolina

PLAX FOR A SOUTHERN C0XFEDERACT COMMISSIONERS
TO BE SENT TO EACH OP THE SOtTTHERN STATES.
Mr. Hayne submitted a resolution in effect that
Whereas, the causes which have prodused a separa
tion of South Carolina from the Federal Union, have
emanated from the States north of Mason and Dixon's
line, which use hireling labor only ; and.
Whereas it is not agai-ist the Constitution of the ,
United States that South Carolina has opposed her
sovereignty, but the usurpation of the government
in violation of this instrument, therefore be it
Ketolced, That a commissioner be sent to each of
the slaveholding States, bearing a copy of the Ordi
nance of Secession, and proffer each State, or any
one or more of them, the existing Constitution of
the United States as the basis of a provisional gov
ernment, to be adopted on the part of South-Carolina
and any other slaveholding State or States which,
after seceding from the present Federal Union, shall
be willing to unite with South-Carolina in forming
a new confederacy ; and we do hereby ratify and
confirm, from the date hereof, any action taken by
such commissioner or commissioners, and with the
consent of the Governor of South-Carolina, in the
formation of such provisional union : And we do
further earnestly recommend that in days after
two or more States, in addition to South-Carolina,
shall have acceded te the said provisional union, an
election shall be held for Senator and members of
the House of Representatives of the new Congress,
and also a President and Vice President of the new
Eeolved, That .three commissioners be appointed
to carry an authenticated copy of the ordinance of
secession to Washington, and be laid before the
President of the United States, with a request that
the same shall be communicated to Congress now in
session ; and that the said commissioners are hereby
authorized and empowered to treat for the delivery
of the forts, magazines, light houses, and other real
estate and all appurtenances thereto within the geo
graphical limits of South Carolina the authority to
treat upon these subjects to be extended to the
day of February in the year of our Lord 1S01 ; Pro
vided, That in the meantime said forts, magazines,
etc., are allowed to remain in the condition in which
they may be at the adoption of this ordinance. And
they shall be further empowered to treat upon the
subject of the public debt, and for a proper division
of all other property now held by the Government
ot the I nited States as an agent ot the Mate now
embraced in the suid confederacy, until such time as
a new confederacy of States shall be formed, of
which South-Carolina shall be one.
These resolutions elicited a long debate, in which
Messrs. Rhett, Keitt and Middleton participated.
The first resolution was referred to the committee
on foreign relations, and ordered to be printed.
NEGOTIATION WITH THE INITEI1 STATES.
Mr. Meniminger submitted a resolution that a
commission consisting of three persons b' elected
by ballot to proceed to Washington t negotiate with
the United States, through their General Govern
ment, as to proper measures and arrangements to
be adopted for the continuance of peace and amity.
And also that five be elected to confer with deputies
from the other slaveholding States with a view of
forming a Southern Confederacy, etc , and also to
arrange for a general meeting of such deputies.
These resolutions were appropriately referred.
Another resolution was introduced to inquire
! what legislation by Congress is necessary in the
j The act of secession was made the special order
j for to-morrow, Thursday.
I The convention adjourned at 29 minutes to 4, p.
! in., to meet again Thursday at 11. a. 111.
I DEBATE ON THE PASSAGE or THE ORDINANCE.
j Mr. Magrath said : I think the special mailer of
the Ordinance should be immediately considered.
According to ray understanding, there is no Collect
! or of a port, nor is there a Postmaster in South
Carolina What you have done to-day, has ex
tinguished the authority of every man in South
; Carolina deriving his authority from the General j
1 Government. I am in favor of this body making !
i such provisional arrangements as may be necessary I
in the interval which will exist Ix-iwecn this mo- ;
inent and the time' at which the Legislature may .
' act. I am not, however, to be implicated as sane- '
tioning the idea that there is no lawful authority
: within the limits of the Slate except that of the
! General Government.
! Mr. (iregg, of Richmond, said : After South .
' Carolina has abrogated the Constitution of the Uni- j
' ted States, are its laws still of force ? I think nut '
, All laws of Congress fall instantly 10 the ground 011 :
, the passage of the act of Secession.
Mr. Cheeves : An immense chasm has been made
in the law. It is necessary to avoid inconvience to
; the people, and we must, therefore, make temporary
; arrangements for carrying on the government.
1 Mr. (iregg: There is now no law on the subject
j of the collection of duties in South Carolina. We
have now accomplished the woik for which every
son of Carolina has been laboring for forty years.
! Mr. Hayne The Congress of the United States
: is no longer our Government It will be for our .
Legislature to say what laws of the United States
1 shall be continued, and what not. The shiplc act
of Secession does not abrogate ail laws. We have
a groat many laws on the statute books, which were
; parsed by the Governor and Privy Council.
1 . Mr. Gregg The Congressional laws for the col- '
lection of revenue are for the support of the Fed
; oral Government at Washington ; and all poslollice
: laws fall on our dissolution with that Govirnment
Mr. Miles: We have to deal with stum facts and '
, realities, and must prevent confusion, anarchy and
! derangement of our Government affairs. Thing !
I must, for the present, remain in ttntu quo, or great i
; confusion will arise. j
I Mr. I larnc deemed sudden action injurious.
Mr. Chesnut: There are two questions involved, i
viz: power and duty. e must preserve our nco-
ple, not only from inconveniences, but a chaotic
condition. We must revivify such laws as will lcst
preserve us from such calamities. As to ilutv I
j ask, will you send the ship of State adrift, regardless
or what becomes of the olhcers?
Mr. Mazyck : There is no duty for the Collector
of the Port to do. The postotlice should be swept
off. My opinion is, that the present system of pos
tal arrangements is a nuisance. The public are bet
ter served by private parties. ISetween cities like
Philadelphia and New York, the postage should be
one cent instead of three. Less important places it
should be ten or more.
Mr. Calhoun: We have pulled down a temple
which has been built for three quarters of a century.
We must now clear away the rubbish, and recon
struct another. We are now houseless, and we must
"secure ourselves from approaching storm.
Mr. Duncan: If that Ordinance be passed things
will go on in the Custom House and Postoflice ex
actly as now, until other arrangements are made
by this Convention. There is nothing in the Ordi
nance to affect the dignity, honor and welfare of the
State of South Carolina. We must keep tho wheels
of government going.
Mr. Withers: The Constitution of the United
States is not entirely abrogated by the Ordinance.
What isa legal tender in the payment of debts? Is
it not gold and silver coin of the United States ? In
the case of clearing our entry of vessels,
very likely to have the same confiscated.
Mr. Carroll: The present revenue offices, if
filled, would be continued until the act of the Legis
lature authorised otherwise.
Mr. Brown : There's no longer any communica
tion with the Government, from which we are just
Mr. Duncan : The spirit of the Ordinance must
be viewed temporarily until we treat with the gen
Mr. Gregg: The President of the United States
has thrown down the gauntlet in the message. He
lias said that it is his duty to collect revenue, and
he will do it On one side of the federal govern
ment claims rights, and declares its intention to ex
ercise the the power of collecting revenue in our
ports. On the other side, we have decided that we
are fret I desire no compromise. If it be neces
sary to maintain 15 to 30 per cent, the duties im
posed by the Congress of the United States should
continue to be levied; otherwise the people will
suffer a terrible calamity. As for carrying the mails,
let the President's contracts be assumed by South
Carolina instead of the United States.
Mr. Rhett: This great revolution must go on
with as little danger as possible to the country.
By making the Federal Agent ours, the machinery
will move on. The federal laws in regard to taxa
tion must not exist over us. We are now contend
ing for the great principle of taxation. I trust that
the present system of taxation has fallen forever. -
Mr. Barnwell: We have seceded from the United
il r 1 1 - j 1 1 V t
oiaics, esiauiisueu our muepenuence, ana we cannuv
allow the Uniftd States to exercise authority over
us any more. Let the postal conveniences be sacri
ficed, if necessary. There never was any thingpMr
chascd worth having, unless at great cost and sacri
Mr. Mazyck : I regard that the mail and all other
restrictions must be removed. Let us appoint our
own officers. We must battle with difficulties as
they come. - ;.. '
The hour of 3.40 p. nv having arrived, the Con
vention took a recess to meet at institute Hall at
six o'clock, for the purpose of signing the Ordi
nance. " s '
As the Convention was leaving St Andrew's

PUBLIC MEETING IN" BEAUFORT.
Pursuant to notice previously given, a public
meeting of the citizens of Beaufort, Carteret coun
ty, wittiout distinction of party, was held on Satur
day, the 13th inst, at the Front Street House, for
the purpose of taking into consideration the present
aspect of our federal relations; when, 011 motion of
C. R. Thomas, Esq.. & D. Pool was called to the
Chair, and R. W. Chadwick and Allen Davis, Jr.,
' On motion,- a conTnTflttee. of seven,' consisting of
C. 11 Thomas, B. lu Perry, James Ward, Ibos.
Duncan, Belcher Fuller, Jas. L. Manney and E." II.
Norcom was appointed by the chair to prepare reso
lutions for the action of the meeting. Tho com
mittee retired for consultation, during which the
meeting was entertained with short speeches from
several gentlemen, deprecating the unsettled state
of the country, but taking strong grounds in favor
of the Union.
The committee returned and through their chair
man, C. R. Thomas, reported, 011 the part of the
majority, the following resolutions :
Jiesoln d, That a Convention of the people of the
State ought to assemble in order to deliberate and
consult, in that spirit of moderation, conciliation
anl compromise, which becomes the character of
North-Carolina, and which has marked and dignified
her history, upon their federal relations their
rights and duties in the present state of the
Kewhed, That the present General Assembly
should provide for the calling of said convention, on
an early day, whose action should be final and con
clusive when ratified by a vole of the people.
Hundred, That while wc have no word of condem
nation for anv State whicl- may determine1 upon
separate action, so far as to sever, or attempt to
sever, her political connection with the national
government, on account of the slavery question, we
twfievc that the people of North Carolina should
never adopt such a course, for present and existing
causes, without conference w ith, and the co-operation
of, upon so nv general plan her sister States
especially the bonier States of the Union similar
ly situated and circumstanced ; and. then only as a
final remedy after all other remedies, which would
be approved by an enlightened and just public opin
ion, have been tried and have failed,
Itrwlren, That while we would, still. " cherish a
cordial, habitual and immovable attachment to our
Katioiial Union," we are reluctantly but firmly per
suaded that a persistent agitation of the question of
domestic slavery as it exists in the Southern States,
by a large portion of our Northern brethren
through their Press, in their Pulpits, and otherwise,
especially by the party which is sustained mainly
by one idea of hostility to slavery ; will and must,
, sooner or later lead to a severance of all political

ion upon the right of a State, according to the Con
stitution, to secede from the Federal Union, we are
agreed, that whenever any form of government be- j
comes destructive of the cuds for which it was estaln .
lished, to wit : " to maintain all in the secure and i
tranquil enjoyment of their rights of person and '
property" property in slaves included "it is the 1
right of the people to alter or to at-olish it ; and to
institute new government, laying its foundation on :
such principles, and organizing its powers in such
form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their
safety and happiness."
Kwlrrd, That wc approve of the recommenda
tions to the Legislature in the message of his Ex
cellency. -John W. Ellis, in that the State should .
be placed in an adequate position of defense by re- ;
organizing the militia and arming, and equipping :
volunteer companies at the public expense. ;
lltMolreJ, I bat copies of the foregoing resolutions
be sent by the Secretary to our Commoner, and
Senator representing the district of Carteret and
Jones, in the General Assembly.
Col. 15. Fuller on the part of" the minority report
ellhe following as a substitute :
, 1,'cntdced. That in the event of the State of South
Carolina withdrawing from the Union, for the pur
pose of securing her rights and her interests, we
iconsider that the best interest of Noilh-Carolina de
mands a similar course to be pursued by her people,
and that it is the important duty of every son of the
Old North State" to array himself with the Soutli,
Jt) one destiny.
The question being taken upon the substitute, it
was rejected by an almost unanimous vote.
The resolutions as reported by the majority were
then acted upon icrittim and passed with scarcely
a disssenting voice. Before final action was taken
upon the resolutions, they were advocated by C R.
Thomas, Esq., in an able and eloquent speech.
On motion the Secretaries were requested to for
ward a copy of the resolutions to the editors of the
Union BuitHi r, the Raleigh Iietifer, and Standard,
the Petersburg Daily Erjrtm, Baltimore Americm ,
and New York Journal of Commerce, wilh the re
ipiest to publish the same, and that other North
Carolina papers be requested to copy.
On motion the tMnks of the meeting were tend
ered to the olticcre for the faithful discharge of their
duties, and the meeting adjourned.

Fok the Usios: The Winston .Sentinel, one of
the leading organs of the Democratic party in the
West, comes out for the Union in decided terms.
4 The question of secession or disunion is not a
party issue. The Union of these States is above
party, and in opposing any precipitate measures
which the cotton States will doubtless undertake
and strive to force ujkui North Carolina, we do not
swerve one hair's breadth from the long established
principles and policy of the national Democratic
party, but still cling to its tenets with the devotion
of its founders and all that long list of patriots
whose services and fame have rendered it illustrious.
The Democratic party is not a disunion party ; its
triumphs have been triumphs for the Union; its
disasters have worked harm for the Union. In fact,
the pure and unadulterated Democracy is the only
Union party ignore its principles and sweep it
from existence, and the Union cannot survive the
