The Slavery question and State Rights
We invite attention to the Repot ts :
the Committee on the Slavery question
-and State Rights, submitted to the Ges
ral Assembly by the Joint Committee m,
pointed for that purpose, which will b
found on our first page. The doctrine of
secession is now as virulently assailed ax
nullification was, and should the federal
ists be as successful in the former as they
were in the latter case, we should then
change our name to the United Nation of
America, instead of the United States.

Governor of South Carolina addressed a

in reply states that he is by law Comman
