The aiquenlt spiaker, in the first portion of his remarks, P iacks nith much tersenes and power the glaring rar 1,f coniferring upon this botardl an exer.ssive at d acoratitutiun'. jurisdiction, pronouriig it- "the Lst atdiaisly coinstinied tribunal rat hris ever been a rti:ited irn this ar any other.countiry proaes4i4g the enriiies car raa olatd liberty." lie datesa nilt 11 mnch , tack the borard itself (pr venturing to enereise. lhe .a aver with which it was etiduwed, as he does the 1 iottnd legislation which called that power inttu ex. e ene. "Thie legislastive department," says Ire, 1 haulhl take tli.! first share of the bline." n The 6etrntor next argues that the President himself1, C - adopting the opitiun.of this delegated atlority, a ilhota at exiatmitiation of tire facts upon which that c riion rasid, nas not strictly conformed to the re iiremnits of tie constiuicon of the United States.

He has s a nuch right ; tad wien lie undertakes to adopt the iinian ofrther people. of a tribunal not known to 1 ir institutions, I shall stand here, as a Senator, be- j veen the humblesLt viizen anti the President, and i iall.resi!t all tire utspliances which have brei, or I y be, ermployed to drag down-not iadividuals, f :rhaps I sioult not care so much abont themr-hut tdrig into jenapardy ihe Constitution of the couniry. When I have asked how this or thatt man camie to dismissed wnilhomi a trial, tire reply is : the Presi mit has the power ; the PreAident ha, done it. Sir, I conid reply, inl tire language of the patriarch, "Th I Aie is Jacob's voice, but tire hands are tire hnuids of aM." In the latter portion of his speech, the Judge pro- I -eds to the special consideration of tie board's aclion. i 'ie following passage i-full of clasic elognence: Sir, I say that the.bard have done injustiee, and ve a'aiied to ex'rcise a jurislictian upon elements iteriig ino their jilemeii which were wrong.

AN ABSTRACT OiHE Remarks of M. W. Gary, Esq., M the .ezpdiency of sending Delegates to the approaehink Cincinnati Convention, on rising, to secohd the Preamble and Resolutions offered by 6l. Sintkins. lli.;SA1nAtAN 1 It is true we live in a great and ,urisling Republie. The noininatton of a President "a Vic' Pzhilelt to preside over her destinies, tA mideth'e wise provisiouns -.f the Constitution to diminister - evet hantded justice'' to ill of her citi MIS, is an oceasion of great an I eicitig siioment her distingtished Statesmen, and one hiat never Fla to guicken the'pu6at ioP,evea, of lierhumihes' triots. Alrealy Ias our gallant sentinel in tlie louse of Representatives expressed himiself in ivor of oirtaking p-rt in' the approaehing Cofi etion, anl the demonstration of public sentiment mows that the great nmass of our people are willing > respond to his counsel. - As important an.1 deeply ab orbing as this nom nat'hn1as ever h'en to the peo're of this Confeife ac, perhaps. therv is po period.of.her histgry.n hich the election or a Presiient that woull stand Iv te Constitution, and protect the threatened' iglIts of Ohd Southi has bedn if gi-t4cr solicitude or* sould contribute more to the perpetuity of this* iion. Judging from the temper of the times, e are convinced that it is tite part of wisdom MM' atriotism, to cosunsel in harmony with. our sister tats; un I to east our aid and influence in Ots' omination of a candidate that will favor the pe uliar interests of the South. It has been the policy of South Carolina for the mst 6flteen years, with-a few exception.s, to take vo art in the nomination, and often to tjrow away her ote. A blind adherence :t a custom that las roven to be of no practical benefits political ad nucement or utility, is the part of a bigoted. *d arrow-minded conservatisn that does not deserve he encoura.Zenleht of t free and enlightoned. public pinion ; time can never hahlow that which is-im Kptent in operation, and injttrinus in its effeets. - - The great name of CALnIuS, " whose solid v'r ues the shot of accident, or the dart of chance,. ould neither pieree-nor penetrate," isbrought for card as the in-uperable-and convincing argunrmr gainst going into the Convention. It has been veil sirid, that what is a ulise net tW-day may not e so to-morroW. The'facts and circumstances that influenced Mr. CanU.oux's opinion have since ebeng . The policy of medtingih Convention, to ne nt611ddiatcs fu'r 'the Pe'.sidenc'y and -Vibe Presi leny, is no longer an'experiment-it has been mdpted osr aen'eseed in by every State in theUnion -xcept outs. And by the principles 6f the common law it his become aI is recognized as a fixed ana mportant. part of the political machinery of our Guve nient. We adujuit utdforce of t'ie objectiotn, to the basis of the organization of the conventioti, that is, that the larger States have too mut1 power -that the spirit of the Convention is not carried out. But, Sir. the same argument, if carried! to its logical sequence would exclude us from the Federal louse of' ltpresentatives, for the Black Republican party ire now in t lie majority-the Constitution has ceased to be regarded as sacred, and its provisions are not faiihtully observed. Previous to theadoption of theConvention system a Congressioial caucus was the node of nominating a Prviident and Vice President. bIr. CuLvuO in his letter (of February, A. v. 18 14, stake that this was a cierrupt, vile. and demnorabling system: and that he, together wvith Gevn..hexsox, aided in pet itg it dowen. In the same letter lie admits that the provisioins of the Constitutional method are too refned for practice. Experience has verified the correct ness of his j udgemient. In the year IS01, the election of. the .Presidet nd Vice' Per'edent devol ved u.pon thes Federal llsuse of' Representativ'es. A fter manty disgraeeful intigues .Jarv.nsox 'was elected by a siugle vote over Bonnui. The. operation of the Constittinal method was then admitted, by all parties, to be itn satisfatortey andi def'ective. A gain, in the year 18'24, there was no Cotigressionaul caucus, or ntointiton in convntiint. -l A esos, thiought receiving the high et vote in the Electoral Ciolege, was defeated in the Fedleral Ilouse of' Representatives by Jonix. QetcY A Daus. the iunost bitter and distinguished A btol;tioist of' his day. 'This election pr'ovyd to be entirely dil'erent from the wishes of the people, andl contirrmed at honest Stcitesmien in their judg met, as to the previously develoPed defects of the Constit utionial msei bod. An.1', in order to remedy this evil, in the yeair 1SJS, IEss-oN in the Senate, and Mleirrts in the 1[eouse, introdluced resolutions to aend the Constitutional muethod, whtich were vo'ed don: and it now remai:ns in fu1l fure, eloth ed with all of its ' fault., and defects. Then, Sir, since Congressional caucus's no longer cist ; since the 1-rovisions of the Constitution have prlven to be too refined in theory for practice, ansd since we have filed in amending them, we are ine it:bhy reduced to hlobson's choice-that of taking the Cotvention as it is. Th'e Convetntiotn is not such as we would have it, neither, Sir, is the Constitutiona itself ; and we can only indl a perifectly org mitzel governentt itn Plato's lelal Republic, or Mloor'e's Ctopiai. We live in an age eminently J.stiguished for its progress, prae ie'nbity and utility iiind I ask what are we to gain by sading. aloof any longer from the Conventioni it the.lat tifteen years have we'maide a single eoa vert to our isolated positlon ? Ilavea we ingratiated urselves with a single. State? Or have we nat .. rather alienaited our sister States from us by this exeusivo policy 1 In fact, hove our .rights .beent berter protected and secured I flare our grievances been more readily listenedi to, and our wrongs more. ru:ekly redressed !No, Sir. ThIe wild spirit .of' Nirterin ag:.ressioin hans turned a deaf enr to our eoplaits: andl the iron heel of fanaticismt has not been less grinding anid degrading. A gait, ean it be denied, that so 'ong as South Carolina remains in this Confederacy, she must and hides feel a direct intesest in the proper administra-. tion of the Goveernmtent ? Ihoes shte not parta'ke of' its god fortune, and! must she nut share its evils . - Is is ot also a nmatter of fact, that the Government will miy be adminiistered favorably to South Carm in, when that party that recognises the Constitu-. Liunal existence of Southern institutions is in pow'er? And do we consider any otther p-irty, except thu Dmoratie, as being favorable to the South ? Then the Democratic party must be placed in power, an~d hiis idone by every Denmocratio State concentrat ing thir influence by sending deleg.ites 'to the Democratie Convention. The refusal of any State tissend Delegates is a detraction fromt the whole gr. gggregate inftluencoe of the party. Thmose, therefore,. whit reuse to send delegates wanto'nly diminish, he chances of nomninating a candidate that will. favor their own views and subserve their interest. If we are ever again to take a part in the nonmia ton, can there be a more favorable timie to do it'? I is now no lounger a miatter of conjes'ture, who has the aseneicy in the luse of Reprwesentativ'es. aas has beeni elected Speasker, after an uaprece dented contest oiver one of our own Represent~atives. AAnd we are told that if the people fail to electin. he iletoral College. and th - elction fallus into the Fderl hlouse of Representatives, that notiig is mote certain than that is:e will have a Bhaek Repub Iien t President and Vice President. The. lack Reeublican banner has alreiady been unfurled, and is now triumphantly waving over the Cspitolof-the tiiited stts Their casmp-ires are being kindleud upon the pltas otf Kansas, and we are convinced hhat it will become the great battle-fiel of the South. There will be decided the great questioth as to wh hettr they' will be permitted to say to the shave-. ooletrs, " thus far shtalt theo earr y thy property and ii e turter-the botunarie of s'ave territory are to. leer. f.., ...id dA..:t..1.. e,.t...-hio As.tinyonf al-.
