thing more is necessary to give point and ellicary lo these * quotations bom tbe message and report; and tti.it i«, to state, that they were both submitted to Congress about one month after tbe message of Gov. Foisyih to tbe Geor gia legislature, wbieh bears date tbo till ol November, 1828, ami in which that officer insisted st.ongly on the I duty ot the general government lo remove tin* Indians, 1 and proposed to the legislature the taking ol immediate I steps to subject the whole Cliviokeo eounuy to the ope ration of the State laws, and to divide among tl*e citizens of the State alt the hunt* claimed by the liibc. cxeept such portions as should be assigned in .severalty to the In dians who should remain, ami t r which an indemnity slim.Id bo claimed bum iln* t idled States. This divcu mrnt and the proceedings lts*l upon it in the Georgia le gislature, iinist have been well known to Mr. Adam* and his cabinet; and ll tin’ propositi.ms made to Congress bad been prep.lied by the author of the Slate message, they could hardly, in iheii results, have more entirely corres ponded. II fori- vve pass from these papers, let me call your at* tentiis* lo the harsh language in which Gen. IVrt'T and Mr. Adams—tor what the former asserted the latter re commended to the special notice of Congie.** and ol the nation—reflected on the conduct and motives ol tins mis sionaries then residing among the Indians, two of whom were .Messrs. H'liivsbr amt Halter, in whose behalf so wniin/, unit such injlommotory appeals, me uuiifc lo the religious pa^lic! When, and in what document, Mi. I*rr •ident, did Vmlrevv Jackson ever utter or approve of such 1 censures on ihusc persons? No such language can be. found in atij document wbieh has emanated from Vmlrevv ; Jackson—m*—not even in the FOlvGFl) I.KTTKll to tho American Hoard of Foreign Missions, recently fabricated for the purpose of inerca.-iug the excitement against him. And yet has Vndrew Jackson been made obnoxious to tbe prejudices ol a great proportion ol the religious public, on | the alleged ground liiat In* entertains towards tbe Mis sionaries, feelings hutli unkind ami illijllsl! And Messrs. Clay and Wirt, who may be presumed to have assented to the censures above quoted, are specially commended to the favor and support of (lie friend* and patrons of those persecuted men! Whilst I do not concur in the severe censures of Mr. Adams and bis cabinet, I have no hesitation ill saying that, In my judgment, the missionaries, in interfering ill (lie po litical questions between tbe Cherokee* ami Georgia,1 overstepped the limits of their duty. l,ct me not be minim dorstood. I liavo nut the slightest doubt of the purity of their motives; l sympathize with them in tlicirsulferings; ami I honor them tor adhering, at the risk of imprisonment and bonds, to what they, sincerely—though as I think, niojt erroneously, believed to be tiroir duty. But I am equally satisfied, that in reference to this point, they en tirely misjudge—probably under the influence of bad ad visers—and l cannot but think, that if they had confined their studies to their Bibles, instead of extending those to the treaties with the Indians, (lie Constitution ol the U. States, and the statute laws of» ongress and of Georgia, they would havo found the very question whether it was proper for them, a* minister* of tbe gospel, to become par ties in this controversy, decided in the plainest manner, and by the highest authority, in the negative. i ammo, sir, 10 me mcnmi.itile answer given l>y the Author of Christianity, to the question pul to Inin con cerning the tribute money exacted from the Jews by the Roman emperor. To show the pertinency of this refer ence, let us compare the two cases. Wo are told by the missionaries and those w ho approve their course, that they mleilcred in behalf ol the Chorukees, because, after in vestigating the subject, they had formed a deliberate opi nion that the Cherokee nation was the rightful sovereign of the territory in question, and tliat Georgia had no light to extend tier jurisdiction over it. For the sake ol the ar gument, let us admit (what otherwise 1 should not feci myself at liberty to admit) dial they were light in this opinion, and then lot us recur to the condition of Judea at the lime to which I have rclcrred. That country had been given by the Creator to the descendants of Abrahaui for ever, and they had been planted in it by divine interpo sition, lor the purpose of preserving the knowledge and worship of the true God. Shortly before our Saviour's advent, the Kotnins, a nation of idolators, residing on ano ther continent, and having no connexion or intercourse with the descendant*of Abraham, who were jet In actu al possession ot the territory, die whole of which had been cultivated and settled by that nation for nearly fif teen hundred years—the Romans, inllamed by the lust of conquest, and without any justifiable cause, carry their arms into this insulated corner of the earth; wage an of •jfcirlBWiS.'SE; , opimwvei taxes Now, even though we were to be iil\i that the Cherokecs were all right, and Georgia all wrong, m the controversy b. tween them, vet no otic will a firm, that the oppression of Georgia could exceed that ol the Romans, or the light of the Cherokecs be clearer or more sacred than dial of the Jews. H,lt when (he dis ciplcsof ilie Pharisees and 1 Icirulinn* came (o Him tvliofe example should be the gui.lo of all his ministers, with the insidious And hypocritical question, “Is it law ltd to give tribute unto Ctesar, or not?*’ w hat was his reply? “Ren der unto Caisur the things which arc Caesar’s, and unto God the things that are Cod's!” This wonderful reply touches and covers die whole question. It shows, espe cially when taken in connexion with the course uniform y pursued by the Saviour and Ids apostles, that those who had been sent to preach the gospel to the Cherokecs, were not only not bound to take part in this unhappy controver sy, but that w hen they did so, they laid .vide tl.e charac ter ol ministers of the gospel, and assumed that of pollti nans and partisans. 1 I lie religion* community 11.1(1 *cnl them to the Indian country for the purpose of scattering the seeds olciviliza t‘on,1,1,11 Knowledge, and of leaching the native* the truths ol (he go-pel, and for this purpose solely. | do not deny their right to become pai tizans and champions ol the Che rokee* it they thought proper lode so; lor, notwiih*tanding their commission as missionaries, they still retained the or* dimuy rights of American citizens. What 1 mean to say. I--, that when they became such parti/.ans and charn pnms they laid aside, in rclcrvnco to the political con troversy in which they engaged, and in rdcici.ce to all consequences which result from it, the sacred offico ot teachers of religion, and lost (ho claims, which so Jong as they confined Ihemscivev to (lie duties ol that ollice tficv would justly have had, to the support ami protection ot the religious community. This, at least, is (he light, m which slier mature deliberation, I am compelled to regard the’ matter; and, l apprehend it will he diiricull.il not impossi ble, to satisfy impartial and reflecting men that I am wrong Hut to return Irom this digression. You will not tail to observe, sir, (hat dm conclusion expressed in the report ol Gen. I orter and the message ol Air. Adams, must he pre sumed to have heen assented to hy Air. Clay and Mr Wirt, the> candidate* now before the people in opposition’ to Gen. Jackson, because they were then both members ol the cabinet; and it is not to be supposed that a matter of this importance would have been submitted to Congress in so unqualified a manner, it they had dissented from it’! Here then, withthe decision of (ho last administration! i that the ( herokee* were not to be protected by the Gcne ml Government in their claims .;/ exclusive sovereign to 'ml that policy, duly, and humanity, required their re moval to u territory beyond the Mississippi; let us pause •or ,i moment, whilst we contemplate the introduction into, the government, ol the new administiation and the cour«o which it pursued. That event occurred in March, 1329, idler the adjourn- 1 incut ol Congress, which had separated without passing Soy bill upon the subject; and the question therefore con- i stltuled an immediate and proper subject ol attention_! General Jackson took it up, and examined it |or himself I Jxo judicial opinions had tlien been pronounced upon it; hut he had before him the deliberate report of General I orter, and the equally deliberate message ol Mr. Adams. • w ith the aid ol those documents and of his previous infor m .mm on the subject, and under the sanction of the oath ho had taken to support the Constitution, General Jackson, alter giving to the whole matter ins best consideration i came, to the conclusion, that he could not, consistently i with that oath, undertake to maintain, hy the power of (lie General Government, «ml against the State of Georgia > toi: pretendoii* ol the Cherokee*. In this opinion the’ whole of the cabinet concurred; and they unanimously ro- 1 commended the adoption of the same course of policy,1 which had been pointed out in the report of Genera! 1 orter ami, tbc Message of Mr. Adams, in the message ol December, 132.1, the general views of the President in relation to the Indians, were submitted to the consideration ; ol ( oi.gr.Ms, and the w isdom and neces ity of providing lor llieir removal, strongly pressed. A hill was reported, in conformity to this recommendation, which was elabo rately disrus.se I in each house. In these discussions, die whole subject was gone into; several members sustained in ! a do and eloquent addresses, the claims ot tin? Cherokee* am. other* again in reply to their arguments, took (ho side of 1 Georgia I I ic bill finally passed l.y a majority ol Jive in the I louse ol Icciires.-ritutives, and id nine in Ihe Senate.

A few minutes before 7 j o’clock the door of tho Hall was thrown open, and such i a rush of people we never ms. Ily 7 o'clock the room ] was mo on i-crowded, that the extra apartment was open- | od, hut Miill there was not space to hold those people who canto to hear the report of their Nominating Committee. More than live thousand people were on tho street, or in the corridors, unable to get entrance. Precisely al 7 o'clock, Daniel Jackson, Esq., called the meeting to order, and nominated tho lion. Stephen Al-I leu os Chairman, which was unanimously approved of.! Kldad Holmes, Ksq, was appointed 1st Vice-President, Saul Alley Ksq., 2d Vice President, and K. I). Comstock, am) llohl. II. Maclay, Ksqs., Secretaries. The meeting being thus organized, Jo it \ K. Stephens, Ksq. from the Nominating Committee, read an address lo the citizens, and Kitancis It. Cut vino, Ksq. from the same Committee, offered several resolutions, all of which were unanimously adopted. Tile names ol the gentlemen nominated as candidates for Congress nnd Assembly were tin . idle ic'd to the meeting for approval or disapproval. On motion, each was put separately, and all, save one, were tmaiiiinoiisly approved ot; that one was Dudley Selden, and nine-tenths ol the people were decidedly in his lavor. Kven his opponents confessed this, and now his nomination being in the strictest sense of the word regular, they will support him with heart and hand. The meeting was then addressed by Messrs. Eli Moore, James J. Roosevelt, Win. K. Price, and Mr. Hire. In the opening words ol Mr. Win. K. Price’s eloquent speech wo exclaim “Fellow-citizens, l would that the enemy might see this!'’ If (hey had seen tho meeting crowded as it was, hy the old and young men of the party; hy the virtuous and patriotic of the city, they would have confes sed how hopeless is the crusade in which they have em barked. Had they heard the truth and force of the reso lutions and address—the eloquence, the tqiiiit-stirring elo quence ol the speakers, and the heart-telt shouts from thou sands, which echoed to the justness of their sentiments, they would have been convinced, that the honor honesty anil patriotism ot Americans will triumph over corruption, bribery and aristocracy. In a word, such an assemblage never was in Tammany Hall before, ami proves to ns, if j proof were wanting, that Jackson, Van Buren and Liberty, nro the watch words of un immense majority [ of our citizens.— Jt/er. ,‘ldv. Oil tho conclusion of the Address, Francis B. Cutting, Ksq. rose, and offered tho following Resolutions, which wore received with the most uiwquivocjl demonstrations of satisfaction : Itesolveil, i nai in me arts ronnceteii iritli me political life of (he present Chief Magistrate ol' the nation, wo re cognize a course ol conduct at once generous, nohle and j independent, and emphatically marked by every leclingof J devoted patriotism,—a series of public service* eminently | calculated to promote the interests of our beloved country ! —to elevate its national character, and to secure to him the gratitude of that people in defence of whoso liberties ho devoted his early efforts against a foreign foe, with that energy of character lie now displays in securing their rights and principles against the machination* of an insidi ous and dangerous internal enemy. Resolved, That Andrew Jackson, in the independent exercise of the constitutional power vested in him as Pro 1 sident of the United Stales, did, in vetoing the hill for re I chartering the National Hank, practically illustrate the I -alutary provision reserved to the executive, by affording the most incoutiovortiblo proof that power judiciously [ delegated will never he otherwise exeicised than in pro | meting tho ends of justice, and in advancing the public good. | Resolved, That the simple fact of a great and powerful monied institution interfering with, and presuming to in i llucneo tho people in the exercise ol their invaluable ] blessing, the elective franchise, presents at once tho j strongest evidence of tho discriminating mind and uner ring judgment of Andren'-.t ,fff. American citizen. I iiesoiveit, That wc estimate too highly tho value of our | political institutions ever to permit them to he moved from : their basis by the (lower of wealth or the influence of aris tocracy;—that in the proud appellation of “American citi zen” is to he found a safeguard to every attempt that may bo made to enslave the minds ol freemen, or render them unworthy of the heritage of their fathers. Resolved, That Martin Y'an Hurcn, a citizen alike dis tinguished lor his ability and integrity—for his untiring i zo‘,, promoting the Democratic institution* of his coun ; try—for his patriotic services rendered towards it, in the i many honorable and responsible stations which he has , tilled has ever merited, and lias fully secured the undivi j ded affections, and entire confidence of the Democratic ci tizens of Now York—of that Stato which is proud to ! boast of him as a native son. Resolved, I hat his fearless ami consistent course os a | J®ading and powerful advocate in the cause of the people | brought ••pon him in early life, a phalanx ot opposition, which has pursued him progressively with his useful ca ( rccr, and which can he traeed in tho numerous hut pitiful i attacks ol the individual detainer, up to that notable coali tion, formed by a majority of the Senate of tho U. States | many of which body have already been taught to know that the blow which they would have inflicted, will be in ole to recoil most cflectually against themselves. Resolved, That wo ircognise in William L. Marcy, an i enlightened, patriotic citizen, long identified with the de mocracy of the country, and well entitled (o tho confidence of the people. mmoiea, i riar .innn i racy has equal claims ,o our fa vorablo com-i'lcralion lor his tried integrity, and consistent political character. Resolved, That as in union there is strength, so should ■ every act that lias a tendency to secure it, he hailed with grateful delight by the Democratic parly. That I'. I*. j Harbour, in magnanimously withdrawing as a candidate l lor the \ ice Presidency, has shown his attachment folds parly, and his desire to conform to Democratic usages, and that his conduct claims lor him a high rank in thocstima ■ l,0,> °* ’he friends ol the piescnt administiaiion. Resolved, 1 hat fully sensible of the crisis that we are ; al’l,ro ."n*r—aware ol the necessity incumbent upon every citizen to watch with a vigilant eye the acts of the servants ol the people—to pass in judgment upon them— to approve nr to condemn.— it e, the Democratic Citizens ol the Cily »i,d County of New York, do Resolve, zealously to support and lolly to co-operate in every measure (hat "ball tend to promote the success of the electoral Ticket agreed upon at i lerkimer, for the election of A ndrew Jack son as President, and Martin Van Hurcii as Vice Presi dent ol the United States—of Win.

V pchaiok as Senator to icpreseut the first Senato rial Di-lrict. Resolved, That wo will give our warm and cordial sup port to (lie I icket reported by the Nominating Committee lor members of Congress and ol Assembly. Alter the reading of these Resolutions was completed, the meeting proceeded to consider the nomination* sub milled to them by the Nominating Committee. On motion ol Daniel Jackson, Lsq. it was resolved, (hat the sense of; he assembly should be (aken on each candidate separate i ‘ *, '•* na,nc* w ere called over in a loud and clear voice t>y or.

Anti-JV\Ulification.—A meeting of tho fi lends of the Union was recently held in Haywood county, in this State, at which Resolutions wore adopted denouncing Nullification. A letter was also read from Col. Robert l.ove of that county, who was unable to attend, in which , that veteran of (lie Revolution, in his own strong ami homespun style, exposes the inevitable consequences of N unification. A meeting of the citizens of that part of Rowan gene rally known as the Folks of tire Yadkin, was also held on the tith Inst., at which resolutions disapproving ol Nulli fication, and deprecating Disunion, were unanimously adopted. Also a resolution in favor of a reduction of the Tm ill, waa adopted with but one dissenting voice. A meeting lias been also held in Chatham county, on the same subject, at which the doctrine ol Nullification w as denounced as “inconsistent with the principles of our Union, and palpably absurd.” Union Meetings have also been held in (he counties ol Buncombe and Ruthorlord.—Raleigh Register. In Alabama, there are sixteen political newspapers. Three of them to wit: Selma Argus, Montgomery Jour nal and Tuscaloosa Spirit of the Age, go lor Nullification.

Adjournment of the Legislature.—The Legislature ad journed yesterday, (he 2titli instant, to meet again on the lourth Monday in November next. A lull account of tii« proceedings to tile hour o( adjournment will ho found hi our paper this evening.—Putriot. A part of Mr. Webster’s Speech, delivered before the Worcester Convention, is cited in the Mercury, in which lie is said to have expressed liimsell to the lollowing ef- ! feet. Speaking of Nullification,he warned (lie people '' to see to it, lest sumo resistance to tho authority of the Go vernment was not made the pretext for the exercise of a militury power that would place ull their rights in jeo pardy.” This sentence is quoted to show (tie opinion of Mr. Webster, as to Executive co-erciou in case a State nullities an Act ol Congress. Now, Mr. Webster is a party man, and will of course use all arguments by which lie can effect party ends. One ol tliese is, to prevent the re-election ol Gen. Jackson, and it he can persuade the people of the United States that their liberties are in dan ger Iroin the possible abuse ot (be Executive power, ho will not hesitate to use this er any oilier argument, to ef fect his purpose. Hut how does this sentiment ol Mr. Web ster agree with another part ot his speech, in which lie severely censures General Jackson, lor not enforc ing the late decision of the Supreme Court, in the case of the Missionaries imprisoned in Georgia, flow was this decision to be enforced, if not by Executive coercion? How was Georgia to lie coerced, unless by "on exercise oj military power?” Would the “rights of tho people’’ lie more “in jeopardy’* Rom (he application of a | military force in Georgia, to enforce the observance of a ! treaty, than in South Carolina, to enforce tlm observance of a Law? There is an evident contradiction hero. Hut our purpose was not to show (hat even great vtatcsincn, in the pursuit ot party ends, forget sometimes to lie consistent, supposing that Air. Webster took for granted that Gen. Jackson was to proceed against a Slate without the pre vious sanction ot Congress. We notice this opinion of Air. Webster to dissent from | (be inference which lias been drawn from it, to render ' Gen. Jackson unpopular in this State, that the Chief Alu gistrale will proceed forthwith to coerce a State without the previous sanction of Congress, flow are the ex I ponses of a military expedition, suppose one employed, to | lie defrayed? Can Gen. Jackson apply the money in (he | Treasury in hostile operations, without a previous appro | priation, unless the urgency of the case will admit of no delay ? Air. Webster has proceeded on a mere party pre sumption, that Gen. Jackson « ould overleap all the bar riers of tho Constitution, am] make war at the very mo ment that Congress is in session, to arm him witii powci lor the purpose. Vet it is Air.

A , copy of tlio proceedings follows: TO THE VEurLE OV SOUTH CAnOI.INA. i At a meeting of the memliers ol (he Legislature of the Union, State Rights, and Jackson Party, held in Columbia on the 25th of October, 1832, tlio following address and resolutions were adopted: To-morrow the Great Seal of tins State will be affixed indue form to an act of the Legislature of this State, pro viding for a Convention of the people, ami outlie proceed ings of that Convention, we believe, depends the integri ty of (lie Union of the States—tlm liberty, the happiness and prosperity of tlio people of this Stale. The avowed object of the Convention, as it is understood, is to nullify tlio Tariff Laws of Congress; ami we cannot disguise Irom ourselves, that this pleasure if it does not immediately put in jeopardy the peace amt harmony of the United States, is, in its consequences, calculated to lead to that issue, and we, who have hitherto opposed (he progress of a measure which we esteem destructive of the Constitution and ru inous to the people, led it due to them, to the cause in which wc have embarked, ami to ourselves, to make ano ther appeal to their good sense and patriotism.—Desperate as the effort to resist the current of public opinion may seem, it may not yet bo too late.—"Never to despair of the Republic,” is a lesson ol political wisdom which ought not to be lost sight of, however gloomy may be the aspect of the political horizon. A time of retrospection ami rcltcc tion must come, and we trust it is at hand—the next ex ercise of the electoral franchise may decide the late of the Union. Wo must now think or it may be too late. Without again recapitulating the grounds of our uniform i opposition to the Taiilfof protection, it will ho sufficient, on the present occasion, to remark, that wc arc all opposed to it both oil principle and policy. Hut wc had hoped and still believe that a remedy for the evil would be found in (be ordinary course of Legislation, or through the moral influence of the joint opposition of the Southern States, presenting to Congress the alternative of a modification of the Tarill suited to Iho exigencies of the Government, or of enforcing its execution by physical power. The reme dy by nullification is one to which our judgments can ne ver assent. We regard it as an indirect violation of the Constitution of (he United States, to which as it is taught amongst its advocates, it professes to he subordinate. The Idea of a Constitutional act of nullification appears to us, to involve a contradiction, ami to give it effect, (ho State must in direct terms deny to the Federal Courts jurisdic tion of causes to which the United Slates is a party and such is the case of all causes arising under the Revenue Consm uubny alia'We again Wfioffour fellow citizens in every section of (he State to make another de termined effort to save their liberty, the Constitution and the Union, li e beg them to be assured, that as hereto fore, wc, as individuals, will continue to oppose nullilicu tion, as a remedy of ovil example and ruinous cflcct by all the means in our power as Ibug as wo may do so con sisiently with the laws of the land and our allegiance to the State of South Carolina. i ^[lfr.e^or,e 1 Kat it may bo recommended to the Union Parly throughout the State, to take such mea sures in their respective election Districts as they may deem most expedient, to send delegates to the Convention to he held in this place on the third Monday in November next.

Rigiiton, Secretary. fir of ii tlio Clmrluntou Patriot.] TO COL. JAMES Jt. ERUIJY, Chairman oj a Meeting of the .Members of the Legis lature of the. Union, Slate Rights and Jackson Par ty, held in Columbia on the 25th October, 1832: j s,u—The Resolutions of the Members of the Legists-' ture, ol Iho Union, State Rights and Jackson Party, adopt- I cd at Columbia, enclosed tome in your letter of 25th inst. were submitted to the Central Committee of the Union ! Parly ol (ho Parities of St. Philip and St. Michael, and ' by (hem referred to a sub-Comiiiiltec, who made (he fol lowing Report, which was unanimously adopted, ami or dered to he published. Very Respectfully, J. R. PRINGLE, ^uuirinan 01 mo central Committee, v our Com mi i tee having been appointed to enquire in to the expediency of supporting a Union Ticket in the : aihlits o! St. Philip and St. Michael, tor inembcrM of! the Convention, have given to the subject the profound at- , tendon which is duo to (ho advice of those friends and as sociates hy whom tho suggestion is made. But, after the 1 host reflection that we have been able to give to the sub jert, wc continue to entertain the sumo opinions which : expressed in our Resolution of the 15tli iust. ! The question of Nullification has hocn three several times submitted lu Hie Public.—In 1823 Hie favourers ot : that doctrine were in a minority.—In 1830 they com- ' munded a majority of (lie Legislature; but as tho machinery ol their plan required a concurrence ol two thirds ol both branches, the measure once more tailed for the w ant of the requisite number of votes. The late election has supplied what was then wanting, and a Convention lias been called. 1 lie Numbers have the power of the State in their hands, and we must abide the consequences of eveiy use of that pmver which they may think lit to make.—They are pledged to render it impracticable for the United States to | collect their Revenue in 8. Carolina, without force, and | they are now possessed of the means which (hey consider sufficient to enable them lo redeem their pledge. They 1 must do it on their own responsibility. The controversy I hereafter must be carried on directly with (be General Government, and it depends on Hie constituted authorities | to determine w hat its future rharacler shall be Union Party in these Parishes are pledged to resist Nullification by every legal and constitutional mode. In effectual opposition, however, upon any and every occa-1 sion, is not their meaning. And they believe that any ef. j forts of tlio Union Party to inlhicuce materially (he deci- i sion or the Convention, will be ineffectual. If there whs 1 any probability, that the return of 18 members from these Parishes would affect tbe question of Nullification in tb.it 1 assembly, the Union Parly would take tlic field with equal alacrity, and with gi'ealer hopes than in the recent con tests. Hut even tho complete successor (ho Union Ticket' • in these I .tushes would no difference in tbe majority ol (be : C onvention, and be productive therefore of no change in the action ol (hat body on the important principle, ft is i! very unimportant, therefore, whether wo have a full rep reseiualion in the Convention or not. It would be a derc bchon o honor and principle for us to assist in devising the 1 best inode of rendering Nullification effectual: and if the majority think |,t to render it as ineffectual in practice as ' it is lawless in principle, ami to trifle with the honor ol Hie , Ntalo, as they have done with the obligations of the Con stitution, the responsibility must rest on them. From this alternative the Union Party have done their utmost to pro- 1 serve Hie Stale, hut it is now inevitable. The Convention ! is the work of the Free Trade Association and must per- c form their will. They may put on the forms ol delihera- t lion and the presence of some additional members of the n Union Party might seem to uphold the semblance of dis- t mission, but the principle is in fact decided, and (fie details a are unworthy of debate. The friends ol tho Union who t may be members ol the Convention, will, we hope, record d their dissent at every stage of the proceeding, hut Hie best ' p answer to the pretended unanimity of tho State will be I <* found in Hie 16,000 votes that were polled hy Hie Union ! ti Parly at the late election. , 'j A contested election in (his city is a great great evil, of v itself, and no good cili/.en or virtuous man would be re- n conclled to a repetition of such scenes, unless from Hie prospect ol promoting in a greater degree (fie general ! n ^ood, a result which, in the present case, is not anticipated, p And the sentiments of the Union party have been so m itrongly expressed on this subject, that they would not < ai willingly, (as it is believed) be induced to retrace their tc iteps, and to vote for members ol Hie Convention, Those jo o whom they would be inclined to look as their repre- gi ■curatives, have very generally also declared that they ol would not serve. Considering Hie crisis as inevitable, and , w irepared as we are for Hie sharpest conflicts in w hich ad- a* lerence to our principles may involve us, we do net con- | of inter that the advantages lo result bom a minority ol ., It cw more in Hie Convention, would beany compensation in r the evil* which a contested election iu this city, at the esetit lime, must inevitably produce. In addition to tho foregoing observations, your Coinnilt e submit that the Convention which by an act ot the legislature is to meet at Columbia on the 3d Monday iu ovember, will not be a Convention of the people, uccor ng to the correct and proper acceptation ot that term. Iiv Sovereignty of the people is vested in a Convention, Inch is the great body of the people iu the persons ot loir deputies, assembled to consult for the common good ml to prescribe whatever they may deem expedient lor in accomplishment ol that object. Its powers being illi ■ italde, undeliuable and irresponsible they can only be rauted by the people, that is, by all tho citizens ol the late who have attained the age of manhood. A majoiily t tho Convention must of course decide all i|iiestiuiis rhich may uri-c tor its consideration; but, constituted as lie representation iu that Convention will be, upon the outlined ratio of population and taxation, the sentiments f a majority might be expressed by a minority ol the peo ile, from w hence this monstrous paradox w ould result, that lie people in their sovereign capacity and cxeicising tUeir irimury mid national rights, would be subject to the cou iol ol a minority. A Convention which contains itself so ;rom and palpable a violation of the fundamental principle >y which it ought to be governed is not a popular Con eiiiiou, and iu the opinion ol your Committee, would alone itford an unanswerable objection to lire acknowledgment >f the legitimacy of its organization and the authority of ts nets. W e hope that our fellow-citizens will dismiss from their iiinds all apprehension that we aro influenced by any in filiation to abandon the principles of otir party. We have lie highest assurance that the great body of that Putty n these Parishes, conscientiously and irrevocably al ached to the Union, need no exhortations to keep them ogether. We arc willing to let this election go by dc atilt, because we are confident that our friends will not disperse, and that they will be able more cflcctually to lei’vn the cause which they advocate, by waiting lor the •emit of that experiment, which is now inevitable. Time nust lie allowed tor those wbo are deceived to become icnsiblc of their error, and experience iu the best and surest est fur correcting tlic delusions of opinion.

Resolved, That the foregoing be published. JAMES R. PRINCLE, Chairman. Richahd Yf.adon, Jr., Secietary. TENNESSEE LEGISLATURE, Friday, Oct. 1I>. The select committee, to whom was rctorred tho com munication of Mitchell King, Esq., of South Carolina, have had the same under consideration, and respectfully beg leave to present tho following report Said communication is made by him as a delegate from the Union and State Rights party of South Carolina, soli citing the legislature of Tennessee, to co-operate with se veral other States of tho Union, in sending representa tives to what they call a“Southern Convention. Under ordinary circumstances they believe that no legislative action should be predicated on the application of any self constituted body or party of men, unknown to, and unre cognized by, (lie existing laws of a sister State. But the intrinsic importance of the subject matter ot the commu nication, confirmed as it is by the public history of the po litics of that stale, lias induced Ibis committee to waive tiie imotlicial character ol Mr. King, and respectfully to all parties concerned, to make known their opinions on tho important subject of bis communication. The committco cannot disguise to their own hearts, and will not attempt to disguise to the general assembly, that in their opinion a crisis has arrived more difficult and dangerous, than any that has occurred since tho adoption ol the lcdernl Consti tution. In tiie history of our country, heretofore, all struggles for political power, all conflicts of factions, and all con tests.for principle have passed away, without impairing the confidence and faith ol tho people in their institutions, or lessening, in any degree, that devoted attachment to the Union anti onr common country, which basso emi nently distinguished the citizens of the American Repub lic. Your committco has observed with pain and mortifi rution, that this lias not been the result of the contest j about the tariff of 1828. Since the passage of that act, a growing spirit of discontent, deepening into a loss of con fidence in the capacity of our institutions to protect tho interest <d •*.. ■•>, aim a tiisaiicclion to the Union, barf manifested itself particularly in the south, and in some, though in a very small degree, in the southwest. This disaffection lias shown itself, chiefly in the new and dangerous doctrine of nullification, by which South Caro lina claims the right whilst remaining a member of tho confederacy, to render void and of no effect, within i(9 limits, the tariff laws of the General Government. Your committee believe, that under the constitution no such right exists, and that it it slid, the existing laws on that subject furnish no sufficient occasion for exercising it j more especially, since the recent legislation of Congress, and the known wishes of the present Administration, still further to reduce the amount of duties to the ordinary ex penditures of the Government as soon as it is practicable to do so. \\ liilst wo thus distinctly declare our dissent from this dangerous doctrine, we cannot refrain from expressing our liveliest sympathies for tho sufierings of South Caroli na, and our earnest hope that site will calmly review its tendencies, and that she will do nothing, (at all events, at present,) calculated to endanger the integrity of the Union. As to tiie proposition of tho Union and State Rights par ty lor the call of a southern convention, your committee arc of opinion that a convention of all the States is the on ly one known to the Constitution as authorized to be cal led hy the ’legislatures of the different States, and they believe no sufficient cause for extra constitutional action has yet occurred. Conventions, though emanating from the people, if not provided for by the Constitution, as they conler power without imposing responsibility, ought not to he freely or lightly convoked. \ et your committee ad mit, that should a convention of the States aggrieved by the protective system be convoked, Tennessee can hardly remain an uninterested and careless spectator. Her posi tion, her feelings, and tho pursuits ol her population, all constitute her essentially one of the southern States, amt nothing materially affecting them can fail to he more or less injurious to her. Hence she will always feel that her destinies arc embarked in the same vessel with theirs, and t.iat tiie storms and tempests that wreck them, will most probably destroy her. It is this very intensity of interest w inch should induce us to act in concert in calling a con vention ol tho States, agreeably to Ilia Constitution, and admonish each member and partner in suffering, not to venture singly and alone upon a contest which must ulti mately result in the discomfiture ol all. Whilst we thusdeclino recommending to the Legisla ture to appoint delegates to the proposed convention, we do not mean to commit our constituents from sending them, on the further development ol events, if they should think proper to do so. on a call of such a convention l»y the oilier southern Slates. We have no authority so to commit them. Nor tio we wish to he regarded h.h in^ensi hie to the pure and patriotic motives of the Union Party in making this application to this General Assembly. Dil b ring only as to the means, we most heartily concur with them in the end and purpose ol this mission—the preser valionof our heretofore happy and glorious Uiiiou. i our committee, entertaining these opinions, rccom mend the adoption of Hie following rcsolufion : Jlrsolved by the Central Assembly of the State of Jinnessee, i hat whilst they duly appreciate tho patriotic motives of the Union and State Rights Party of South Caio Ima, and in common with them deprecate the nullification now inculcated by tho dominant party of that State_yet Ihey do not believe it to be proper, and therefore, decline he appointment of delegates by this Legislature, to attend •aid proposed convention.
