Fairfield._Sept 28 * To the Voters of Orangcbnrg, Edge field, Abbeville, Bfcvrberry, Lexing? ton, Richland and Fairfield. FELLOW-CITIZEXS: After much hesitation, I have consented to be put in nomination for your Represcatativc in thc Congress of thc United States. I publish this card, be? cause the District is eo large and the time before the election so short that I could not, if I desired, canvass the District. If a canvass were possible, however, I do not think it becoming or desirable. In my judgment, this is no time for a scramble for office. It seems to me that no one proper? ly impressed with thc solemnity cf thc crisis, and the delicacy and importance of the duties to be discharged, could seek the position merely for tho gratification of per? sonal ambition. For myself, I declare that I have no wish but to serve thc State. In 1788, South Carolina, through a con? vention of her people, became one of thc United States. Sbe remained a member ol thc Union until December, 1860, when, through another convention of her people, she repealed the Ordinance of 1788, seced? ed from the United State?, and with cer? tain other sister States entered into a?othci government, known as the Confederate Government. We believed that we had thc right to secede and; tkatjour security re? quired its exercise in co-operation with oui Southern sisters. South Carolina, in 1852 proclaimed by solemn ordinance thc right of secession. It had long been thc scttlec opinion of tho State that she was sovercigr and entitled to all the rights of sovereignty She asserted self-government in order tc secure her institutions and principles fron great evils, believed to be imminent. Se cession was in the nature of a proceeding quia timei. It waa conceived in thc spirit of self-preservation-not to injure others but to save ourselves. Ii cannot be necessary to say that I am ono of those whaibelieve that it was an honest effort for honorable Surposes. The United States Government emed the right of secession and waged war upon the Confederate States, which stood upon the defensive. A terrible war of invasion and desolation followed, and finally the Confederate States were over? whelmed by force of numbers and dissolved. At the end of the war the State of South Carolina found the Confederacy broken up, her citizens who survived the terrible ordeal exhausted and impoverished, her institutions destroyed, and the wholo coun? try occupied by the military forces of the United States. Under these painful cir? cumstances, the President of the United States invited the Stares lately composing j the Confederacy to re-organize their gov? ernments and restore then* connection with the Constitution and Government bf the United States, upon certain conditions, the principal of which wa? ar. acquiesence in the abolition of slavery, whicn had been accomplished by the military authorities. The State, wisely in my judgment, respond? ed favorably to "the invitation. It is true that the mere issue of battle does not prove right any more than did the old "wager of battle;" but it does provo power which can? not be disregarded. A Provisional Gover? nor was appointed, who called another con? vention of' the people, whicn has lately repealed the Ordinance of Secession, and by an article in the State Constitution, recognized thc abolition of slarery and pro? hibited its re-establishment. By repeal in?r that of Secession, thc Ordinance of 1788, through which South Carolina be? came a member of the Unian, was ipso facto revived, and wc aro this' day in the Union precisely as wc became in 178S and remained up to 1860. Wc are now in avery anomalous position. Belying upon tho good faith and patriotic intentions of the President of the United States, we have done all that wis required of us to restore our old relations to the Constitution and the Union; bat still we have not been received into fellowship at Washington. That important part of the plan of reconstruction remains yet to be accomplished. It is understood" that a party will opposa the President's plan of ? reorganizing the Statesand giving to them equality of rights, and will insist upon still farther"despoiling and crushing the States of tho South as conquered provinces. This radical fanatical party opposed our leaving the Union, and now they oppos? our return? ing to it. When we were in tho Union," they abused us on account of slavery. They waged war upon us because we trlod t? separate from'them, and now that we pro? pose to return without slavery, they still object. In this emergency, theStateneeds the assistance of all her true men. Much remains to bc done, and not the least is to secure a prudent, faithful and patriotic representation in Congross, to assist and forward the work of restoration which tho State has commenced. I arrogate not to myself fitness to form part of such a rep? resentation bat friends have urged me for? ward, and if you are willing to try me, I will give my best efforts. In some respects, we are at the beginning of our policy, as if we were a new State about to assume . new relations with our sister States; but we must never allowour sclves to forget that in other respects we are an old State-a Stato having antece? dents-a name to maintain and a history te preserve. Whatever may betide us ir. the uncertain future, the past, at least, ii se? cure. South Carolina has never swerved from the path of honor, as she conceived it. We have a record of which none need bi ashamed; and when any apostate son ei hers disclaims er disparages it, may she cast him out as unworthy of her. Th? devotion of -every true so'n of tho State adheres in adversity as well as in pros? perity-is loyal through evil as well ai through ?Ood report; and in the midst o! the greatest misfortun.es, "sticketh closci than a brother." After the delegations from the Souther-; States shall have been received into Con gress,many delicate and important duties will devolve upon them, especially in refer euee to the freedmen of the South, and th< control which Congress, or a pa-ty in Con gross, may desire still to exercise ove: them. It may not be improper, in this connection, to say that, whilst I have ap proved the course of the State in scekinj to restore ber old relations with the Govern mont of the United States, it has been ivyoi thc faith anti expectation that thc; State, a: s<?>n as reconstructed, is to have er.tir control of the whole subject of her domes tic .muirs. The State, and the State alone must be left to decide to whom she wi! give the right of suffrage or other politics rights. A new code noir must be enactei to protect and govern the population latel made free-to prevent idleness, vagrancy pauperism ami crime. I am not prophe enough to foresee whether wc can succeet but I solemnly believe it will be impossibl to live in the country at all unless tho Stat has exclusive control of the whole subject I have hope* that this will bo permitted, an I think it is in accordance with our inte rests and true policy to sustain the Pres dont and the Democratic , ;rty in the: efl'orts to restore the- State s to their pos tion of equality sud to give them eqm rights in thc Government. With these views, if tho voters of tl: District think that I can serve them or tl State in this critical emergency, I wUl d my best for them; but I have too high sense ot ruy own incompetency and of tl difficulties and responsibilities of thc pos tion, to solicit it br a personal canvass.
