From the Columbia Guardian,
Letter from Hon. W. W. Eoyce.
Sabine Farm. August 3, 1SU?.
? Gentlemen : My high respccjfc for you in?
duces mc to hasten a reply to your note.
If Lincoln he elected, I think the South?
ern States should withdraw from the
Union; all, if not nil. then as many us
will, ami if no other. Smith Carolina alone;
in the promptest manner, and by the most
To comprehend the full significance of
Lincoln's election, we must remember the
principles, the character and the sentiment
of the Republican party.
The vital principle of tin's parly is ne?
gro equality, the only logical finale of
which is emancipation. To see this, il i-<
? only necessary to look at. their platform,
which, though intended for obvious rea?
sons of policy to appear conservative, yet
raises the veil in part. This platform
says "wohold that all men are created
equal, that they are endowed by their
Creator with certain inalienable rights;
that among these are life, liberty," &o.;
and this on motion of .Mr. Giddings. This
is intended to include riegros. It follows,
therefore, according to the Republican
faith, that no one can be rightfully held
Slavery, then, is a great wrong.
The Republican parly is bound, there?
fore, so far as their constitutional powci
goes, to remove that wrong. At present
their practica] point of attack i* ihe Ter?
ritories; when this question shall no lon
. gcr exist, then the District of Columbia
will receive their attention, and so on with
the other outposts of slavery. Supposing
these outposts disposed of, then the move?
ment necessarily must be directed against
slavery in the Stales. The party will be
bound to exercise its constitutional pow?
ers to destroy slavery in the Stales. It
would be considered entirely constitution?
al by the Republicans, to agitate the ques?
tion so as to influence the South, by moral
means, to abolish slavery. And as soon
as the admission of new free States, and
the change of .stains of Rome of ihe border
States furnished the necessary majority to
change the Constitution, the Republican
party -would be sure to demand such
change, and abolish slavery in the States.
The Republican party has but one stop?
ping place?emancipation. 3Ir. Senator
Wilson, of Massachusetts, one of the ablest
men in the Republican party, compre?
hended the mission of bis party, when be
said in Boston, " 1 tell you hero to-night,
that the agitation of human slavery will
continue while the foot of a slave presses
the soil of the American Republic."
By the character of this party, I mean
its sectionalism. It is a party confined
entirely to the Northern States?hoth its
candidates are Northern men. The idea
of the majority section banding together
for the purpose of seizing upon the Gov?
ernment, is at war with the spirit of* the
Constitution. The great idea of the Con?
stitution is the equality of the States.?
The seizure of the Government by one
section is a practical revolution in the
Government. The Northern States then
become the master States, and the South?
ern States sink into an interior condition.
This is not the Union into which our fa?
thers entered. It was ushered in by the
administration of Washington, a Southern
slaveholder, who had humbled England.
The new order of things which the Ro
publican party propose to introduce would
be inaugurated by the administration of
Lincoln, a Northern Abolitionist, who
would humble the South. Between these
two administrations what a profound gulf.
The first representing the perfect equality
of the States; the second would represent
the domination of the North and the sub?
jugation of the South. A half-dozen un?
successful campaigns could not put the
South in a more ahject condition.
By the sentiments of this party I mean
its antagonism to the South. It requires
no elaborate proof to show that the feel?
ing of this party is that of hostility to the
South. The tone of the Republican press,
the temper of public speeches, such as are
delivered by Stunner and Lovcjoy and
other leading men of the parly, the sym?
pathy for John Brown, the very agitation
,<of the slavery question, and numerous
other facts which might be cited, show
that the great passion on which the Re?
publican party rests is hatred to the
Such being the Republican party, for the
fJouth to consent to its domination is to
consent to death. Not that 1 apprehend
any startling measures of aggression by
this party immediately. No. its policy is
too obviously a wise moderation, and its
leaders arc men of too much sagacity to
be driven ahead of their programme. But
the mere fact of such a part}' taking pos?
session of the Federal Government, with
the acquiescence of the South, will be the
most fatal blow the South has ever re?
ceived. The whole power and patronage
of the Government will be placed upon the
side of negro equality; the Northern ma?
jority adverse to us will be stimulated to
new life; they will feel the exultation of
being the master States. The Southern
States, on the other hand, will be wounded
in their prestige. Their equality gone,
hopeless of the future, they will be pre?
pared for defeat because they will have
despaired of victory.
Great as are the moral effects, impor?
tant practical results would also speedily
follow. The patronage of the Adminis
^ tration would be used to build-up a Rcpub-1
and the Federal .1 udiciary would he re?
modeled, so that the dogmas of fanaticism
would becomo the decrees of the Supreme
Court Nor could we obtain peace by an
abject submission, if so inclined; the agi?
tation would go on with increased volume
when it was found not to he hazardous,
and wo would ultimately be forced to
yield all, or to resist under circumstances
infinitely more discouraging than exist at
present. To acquiesce in the vast powers
of the Federal Government going into
the hands of oar would-be masters, with
the intention of resisting at some future
time, would be to emulate the i ; fat na?
tion of the Nttmidiau King, who delivered
his treasures, his arms, bis elephants and
his deserters to the Romans, and then rc
! newed the war, having needlessly depriv?
ed himself of the means of defense.
If the South acquiesces in a Republican
Administration, I think the question of
negro equality is settled against us. and
emancipation only a question of time. I
have regarded this question in the same
light for years, and I have considered the
success of the Republican party in the
Presidential election as involving the ne?
cessity of revolution. So regarding it, I
have thought the great 'paramount object
of our policy wes to let this Republican
success occur, if it must occur, under the
most auspicious circumstances for a dis?
ruption, and those auspicious circum?
stances I thought would consist principal?
ly in the largest attainable sympathy
North, and the greatest unity South.
These conditions I thought were most
likely tu bo reached by a wise and pru-1
dent moderation on the part of the South.
And 1 accordingly advised and acted in
that direction, and I am satisfied 1 never
gave wiser counsels. I said to my con?
stituents last summer, that we must act
with the. most consummate prudence
then, in order to profit by the most des?
perate boldness if it become necessary?
?prudence to give no pretext for the elec?
tion of a Republican, boldness to relieve
ourselves from such election if i: must
lake place. My policy was a consistent
policy?prudence, when pin lenee might
be advantageous; boldness, when nothing
else was left. The time is now approach?
ing when in my opinion the only alterna?
tive will be boldness. If the Republican
party triumph in the Presidential elec?
tion, our State has no choice but to im?
mediately withdraw from the Union.
Nor is this so hazardous an undertaking
as i ight be conceived at firs: sight. *
Suppose we hav done this. Then on?
ly two courses rentnin to our enemies:
first, they mast let us alone; secondly,
they must attempt to coerce us. Either
alternative will accomplish our purpose.
Suppose they let its ?.done very good.
We will have free trade with Europe, and
get along very well in our happy medioc?
rity far better than as a degraded satel?
lite of.a gorgeous system, whose glories
would be for others, whose shame for us
alone. We would not have to pay any
taxes, direct or indirect, to Northern Ab?
olitionists?that would be some consola?
Suji];ose they undertake to coerce us.
Then the Southern State:3, are compelled
to make common cause with us. and we
will wake up some morning and find the
flagof a Southern Confederacy floating
over us. That would be a great deal bet?
ter than paying tribute to the John
The South still has splendid cards in
her hands if she will only play them.
The constitution of Northern society is
artificial in the extreme. Immense
wealth has been accumulated there. A
few arc richer than the Kings of the
Fast; the multitude labor for their daily
bread ; much of this wealth is breath?
the breath of credit. A civil convulsion
will bring their paper system of credit
tumbling about their ears. The first gun
tired in civil war will cost them 8500,000,
00-0. and strikes will not be confined to
the shoemakers, but will become epidemic.
If Lincoln is elected, let us put them at
defiance, and if they incline to try the
last argument of Kings against us?very

or blood, perhaps the doctrine of negro
equality will not be quito so popular, and

of peace and fraternity. Rut if no reac?
tion takes place, and our Northern ty?
rants persist in putting us to our mettle?

Just as wc arc going to press, news has
arrived here from- a reliable source that 22
negroes have been arrested and are to he
hung in \V axahatehie to-day.
Uur fellow-citizen, Mr. II. L. Cotton,
informs us that a letter was received l>y
Thursday's ?mail, by his niece in this place,
from Mrs. Bennett, of Austin, giving an
account of a fearful attempt made about
the 22d iustC, to reduce mir .State Capitol
to a heap of ashes. The daring experi?
ment was made to set lire to some twen?
ty-five of the principal edifices of the city;
fortunately, however, the flames were dis?
covered and extinguished before any se?
rious damage had been sustained. On the
night previous, the Austin correspondent
to whom wc are indebted for the intelli?
gence we are recording, hud been keeping
vigils over the sick bed of a friend, when
she observed a sheet of flames bursting
from a neighboring house, which in eon
sequence o:-" timely Wartung, the citizens
were enabled to arrest, and save the build?
ing from impending ruin.
At present, says Mrs. Bennett, the
whole population of the metropolis are
under arms, and laboring under the most
intense excitement. A police force, con?
sisting of from sixty to ninety men. are
maintaining the strictest system of vigi?
lance, by night and by day.
In all the counties visited lately by fires,
committees to investigate the subject have
been appointed, and the most efficient cit?
izen patrols have been established. In
Grimes county, a meeting of the citizens
?? That there is among the negroes in j
the county a disposition to revolt and be
insubordinate; that this feeling is pro?
duced by the influence of certain white I
persons in tin- comity; that it is time steps
be taken to rid the community of these
men; that preaching to the negroes in the
county be stopped, at least for one year;
that Northerners coming into the county
under pretence of being ministers, teach?
ers, drummers. &c., are to be regarded
with suspicion and received with caution;
that a vigilance committee be appointed,
patrols organized, and other measures for
safety be taken."
A couple of suspicious strangers from
Kansas are recollected as having begu_.
seen in Dallas two days before the tire,
and a day m- two r.t'tcrwanls. They are
thought to have had some agency in the
work of destruction.
