AlSTothe other, to the South and to the
SEt S that they would not submit to the ex-
,fi of slavery from the territories, nor to its ab
n in the District of Columbia. The first of
these outrages upon the South has already been per
petrated ; and Congress by its recent act abolishing
the slave trade, has asserted the right and evinced its
w illingness to inflict the other. For the Georgia
Convention then to assemble and do nothing, and ad
journ, would render her not only ridiculous in her
own eyes, but worthy of the pity and contempt of
her oppressors. Such a course would be emphat
ically declaring to them, all we have heretofore
said is empty bravado, and that our necks are
now ready for any yoke that they may be pleased to
fasten upon them.
2. The Convention ought not, and will not de- '
ride upon separate and independent State action.
There are some among us, who are the avowed id- j
of secession. The public at large are not ful
ly advised what they mean by this measure. Few,
if any of them, we imagine, favor immediate seces
sion, and fewer still, the secession of Georgia by her
self. What then ought the Convention to do ? We
1. It ought carefully to examine into and delibe
rate upon the merits, as a remedy, of non intercourse
of retaliation by reprisals and by a system of dis
criminating taxation. If these or any other similar
measures within the constitution, promise success,
and can unite the Convention and the people they
shonld be adopted.

It is not expected even that this Convention of all
the South, shall adopt as the remedy, the secession
of all the Southern Suites, till it has presented its ul
timatum to the North and given the States there, a
reasonable time to retrace their steps an opportuni
ty of furnishing, if not indenmnity for the past, some
guaranties for the future security of the South. In
the mean lime, the States of the South, can be mak
ing all necesary arrangements, for their mutual de
fence, and preparing themselves for any contingency
that may await them.
Here is a platform upon which it appears to us,
every true hearted Georgian can and ought to stand.
Itis'one which ultimately will ensure redress. It
may defer it, but it is not wise nor politic, that the
State shonld act rashly, and precipitately. None de
ny that the South has been wronged. All who
spak what they feel, admit that if she tamely sub
mit now, she invites and must expect renewed ag
gressions; that if there is no immediate danger to her
institniinns. tlir is danirer in the prospect. Here
thi n, is common ground, upon which extremes can
meet; a common platform where the exclusive un
ion man, and the exclusive advocate for southern
rights can stand, and where both can unite in bat
tling for the rights of the South and for the Union j
as it came from the hands of our fathers. Let the!
South occupy this platform, and if disunion comes,
she is united and prepared, when it is forced upon her, j
to breast any storm that may ensue."
The canvass is now going on, in Georgia, with
much force and bitterness, for members to the uon- j
vention. It is to assemble in December next. j

MR. HUNT'S LETTER.
The New York Globe of the 17th thus notices the
late letter of Washington Hunt, the Whig candidate j
or Governor in New York ; j
" The letter is in the genuine oewara aa capian
dum style. He soft-soaps the North, the South, Mr.
Fillmore, the whig party of the South and of the
North, and everything else but the measures of which
the abolitionists complain. He chimes;in with them
in not giving any decided approval to the comprom
ise bills, except to that which abolishes the slave
trade in the District of Columbia. Finally he takes
ground with the abolitionists in complaining of the
fugitive-slave law. Tbis shows that he is to be sup
ported by the opposition to this law. It presents the
issue to the people of New York, which we have
before said is to be determined at the present election
whether the Union is preferable or not to the success
of the abolition branch of the whig party. We long
ago, before the nomination of Mr. Hunt, denounced
hTm as the pliant instrument of Seward, and he has
proved the truth of our assertions with his own hand.
It is useless for his friends to quote his language re
cognising the constitutional obligations which this
fugitive slave law is intended to enforce. If be
countenances and stimulates opposition to this law,
what other law will he approve 1 We have now at
the north to choose whether we will enforce this
iaw or sever the Union. Mr. Hunt says the law
M conflicts with all our notions if personal right and
security." The inference is irresistable that he is
opposed to enforcing the law, and is prepared to risk
the dissolution of the Union."

The Philadelphia fugitive-slave case has been ab

get this proof. On his liberation, Garnett was met

Soon after he became of age, Col. Pickett filled the
post of Sheriff of Anson county, and was afterwards
elected to the Legislature which sat at Raleigh, where
he served for several years. When the Federal Reve
nue was collected by direct taxation, he received from
Mr. Madison, then President, tbe appointment of Asses
sor and Collector for a large district in North Carolina,
the arduous and responsible duties of which he discharg
ed to the end, with zeal and fidelity.
In the spring of 1818, he brought his family out to
this country, and established himself as a planter and a !
merchant in the present Autauga county, which then
formed a portion of the county of Montgomery. Two ;
years before this early period, he had explored, these
South-western wilds, in company with his near relative
and friend, Todd Robinson, encountering dangers and
hardships incident, just upon the close of a sanguinary
war with the Creeks.J
When the Legislature of Alabama sat at Cabawha,
Col. Pickett took his seat in that body in 1821 ; in 1823 j
he was a member, and again in 1824, which term clewed

to the State Senate, and entered that body in the fall of i
that year at Tuscaloosa, then the capital of Alabama.

He was a man of sterling honor and integrity, and !
perhaps no one ever surpassed him in disinterested be- j
nevoleuce and charity, for he not only supported the !
poor and destitute around him, but freely dispensed to !
those upon the high-way. In person, he was large, erect
and commanding with a face beaming with intelligence, ,
and eyes brilliant and expressive to the last moments of ,
his existence. He was peculiarly remarkable for his wit
and originality, and the risible faculties of more men have .
been aroused, while in his company, than that of almost
any other person. And even to this day, in North Car-
