Tha follawinj extracts are taken
from a letter recently written by Hon.

State, in answer to an invitation to
attetid a Public meeting held in Phil

we believe he drnws an honest an

The aigni of the limes tire truly porten

advocate the cause of secession and disun

those States would never have ceded it to

might be assailed by fmatics and aboli

still further. They agitated tor the pur
pose of abolishing slavery in the forts,
arsenal and navy yards, which the South
ern States had ceded to the Union, under
the consiitution, for the protection and de
fence of tho country.
Thus stood the question when tho Wil.

2. I shall now proceed lo present to
jr'ju .luiiio views upon .me ruujf-ci ot me
much misrepresented fugitive slave law.
It is now evident bom all the signs of the
times, that this is destined to become the
principle subject of agiuiion at tho next
session of Congress, and to lake ihn place
of the . Willmot Proviso. Its total repeal
or it's material modification will hencefor
ward be the battle cry of the agitators of
the Worm.
And what Is the character of this law?
It was passed to carry into execution a plain
clear, and mandatory provision of the Con
stitution, requiring that the fugitive slaves,
who fly from service in one State to another
shall be delivered up to their masters.
This provision is so explicit that he whe
runs may read. No commentary can pre
sent it in a stronger light than the plain
words of the Constitution. It is a well
known historical fact, that without this
provision, the Constitution itself could
never have existed, flaw coidd this have
heen.odierwile?. Is' it possible for a mo
ment b1tJteve that the slave Slates would
have form f a union with ih free State.
across ii.o t t unurv which separates them
would acquire aU the rights of freemen?
This Would have bnento olTdr an irresisti
ble temptation to all the slaves of the South
to precipitate (hiuo!ves upon North. The
federal constitution, therefore, recognises
in the clearest and most emphatic terms,
tho property in slaves, and protects this
property by prohibiting any St -te into which
a slavd 'might escape from discharging bun
trom shivery, and by requiring that that he
shall lie delivered up to his master
But; say the agitators, the fugitive slave
law, framed for the purpose of carrying in
to euect an exprtss provision of the con
stitu'.ion.u itstsif unconstitutional. 1 shall
not t stop to argue such point at length,
deeming this to be wholly unnecessary.
1 fee law, in every one of its essential pro
visions, is the very same law which was
passed ia February, 1793, by a Congress,
many of whoso members bad come Ircsa
from the convention which framed the fed
eral constitution, and was approved by the
rather ' of bis Country. If tins be so, it
may be asked whence the necessity of
passing ' the present law? V by not rest
upon- tiie Act of 1.93? 1 his question is
easily answered. 1 ha Act of 1793 had
entrusted it ewn execution notoalytetbe
Judges of the Circuit and District Courts
of the United States, hut to all Slate mag
istrates of any county, city, or town cor
porate. The decision of the Supreme Court of
tlie United Slates m Hie case of Tig g r$.
the Cntninonweakh of Pennsylvania, de
prived these Stata mug strales of ihe power
if acting under the law. What was the
concauncet Lei us tak the Sua'.e if
Pennsylvania for 'an 'eiample. There
ere but three individtmls left in the whole
State . who coutd judicially execute the
protons of the Act of 1793 tho Circuit
Judge and the two district Judges. Two
of iheo Judges reide in Phi'adelphia, and
one of them t Pi.t-birg. a distance of
more thin three hundred miles spirt. It is
minifcd, thcrf fore, that the law in many,
indeed in n.o-t c se, cou'd not hvo been
executed for wsot of offi -ers near at hand.
It thus becimft absolutrly necesary for
Congress to provide Uni;eJ States otneers
lo take thi place of ths Slt msgis'rates
who hid bcn supersede.!. Without this a

r. Cpiyl Governor Quitmabiur.n,fc
eu asiae irom tne clear, una concise
exposition of wrongs to be redressed,
legitimate to the character of an Exec
utive Message, and indulged himself
in an essay upon the conservative
powers of a government of united
interests, we do not know any one
who would have moro heartily entered
upon the task, or who could have bet
ter tmccd the vast berefitsto be confer
red upon Mississippi by secession. His
graphic pen would quickly have dis
pelled the woe and gloom and sense
loss chimeras, which submission to
wrong has conjured up in the imag
inations of the Federal Unionist1.
Governor Quitman had another tnsk
to perform, and how well h has sus
tained himself wo shall leave to the
liberal criticisms of our own and
sinter SU(e-) to decide.
No country on the face of the earth
possesses more of the elements of
prosperity than our own sunny .South.
It is wrong to suppose that a dissolu
tion of the Union could be attended
with any destruction of our interests,
or jeopardise our peace and tranquil
ity. Let us look around and see the
bountiful resources at our cointn.td.
Our crop of cotton tho p:tst season
will amount to at least three hundred
thousand hales, and that is a failure.
In a good season we may noon realize
double the amount. Cut this year
will realisa to our cotton planters
ahout fixteen millions of dollars.
How much of this large amount now
goes to ihe northern manufacturer?
V shall mako a slight estimate.
The State Auditor's report for laid,
givers the following items :.
Amount of. merchandise so'd by regu
lar mfrijM
3,1-
Merchanfl'.-e sold at
transient Venders
auction, of
by
30,311
, s-i,l0:i,:aj
It is fair to sar that at least six mil
lions of the above goes into the pocket
of northern men. .Now lar.rp por
tion of this amount would be spent in
our State, or nt least in a Southern
Confederncy if one were fortnedj be
cause even a revenuo taral upon
merchandise, say of twenty per rrnt ,
would force tho northern capitalist
either to transfer his investment to
the South or cause his place to bo
supplied by the manufacturer of Cng
nd. A duty ot SO per cent., wouu
etfoclually exclude northern tmnu-.
Irtcturers, and there could bo no hope
left them but to invest their capital
in southern manufactures
We annually consume one million
dollars of domestics. AH this could
be manufactured in Mississippi.
Here, then would be room for a prof
itable investment. e are now re
alioine twenty per cent, profit upon
this manufacture. Establish a laritf
of twenty percent, and ihe induce
ment to manufacture will be greatly
increased.
Dut there are other article pur
chased from the north which would
afford l.ibor for our own mechanic.
The Auditor's report for 1849 shows
lhat there are

Here is over million and a quar
ter of dollars, which under a revenue
tariff of twenty per cent., might go
into the pockets of our own mechan
ics. Neatly tb whole of the above
amount is now enriching the northern
manufacturer.
We only rtfer to these items te
cause we have some oSicial data con
cerning them. TUre is no doubt that
the figures fa.ll far btlow tbe actual
value. -. .
There are other tnechtc&I pur
sells which would receive a great
itspulse. The cabinet raaVer is
scarcely known at a trade in Missis
sipp'u rsoit tf our furniture btiog
purchased at the oorth. It it estima
ted that at least 3)0,000 is acno:iv
spent at the North for fu mil ore bro t
into our State. This raoart would
plve employment to six litindreJ me
chanics, and S"ord a fine iscorne to
tb blale.
I8S01V
It is estimated that the boots and
shoes imported from the North exceed
a million 6fdollars annually. These
can all be made by negro labor, and
would give employment to three
thousand negroes at an annual profit
to their 'owner of three hundred dollart
t'ic?l. V
the iWiiu would, under a tfyili upon
the northern article, yield n revenue
to our mechanics of about five hun
dred thousand dollars per an n urn. ;
Iron now lying iti the. bosom of our
hills and valleys would ho mined and
sent into market. A revenue daty
of twenty per Cent, would be all-sufficient
to induce laboring men and cap
italists to scud tlie iron ore of Ala
bama, Georgia, South Carolina and
Mississippi, into market.
The city of Natchez, Vicksborg,
and other towns on the Mississippi,
would become great importing depots
of European merchandise, for the
supply of the State, and our low
duties would tempt thousand of wes
tern merchants to lay in their sup
plies tit the-e cities. A low fynteniof
dut u s wo irJ reduce Ibe corit of con";
sumption in Mississippi twenty per
cent , and consequently give lhat
grent advantage to the cotton planter
over other southern State?.
We have plenty of idlo capital. In
lSly,according to the auditor's report,
there were ,y 'i,432,000 dollars at inter
est. 1 he whole of this sum would
be; immediately put into circulation,
Our citizens would withdraw their
moneys now invested in northern
Statt s. Tlie wholu of tho moneyed
meani of the. South nre at once con
centrated upon the development of
our rc-ourcei when a tarilf upon
northern riianufactures is established.
The sixteen millions of dollars receiv
ed 'annually from our cotton, instead
of building up northern mechanics.
i'i.viu!cUirers and merchants, would
the ' tu a great extent be distributed
hi L&iiie--. WcjojuM s&o.every whro
tlniving villages, and a large class of
comfortable farmers. In the eastern
p.irt of this State, owing to the fine
water roursrs, many large manulao
toi ies would be established, and with
them would come markets for all
kinds of MOficultural produce.
We see these facts, and we might
trace mueh further the effects of se
ces-ion upon our home labor, that so
far as the pecuniary interests 01 toe
manses nro concerned, we nave noth
ing to npprehend from parting with
the free soil portion of the coofedera-
In any other point of view we
might discuss this question, and show
the extreme folly of imagining thtil
tho people have anything to fear,
should they, in justice to themselves,
he compelled to separate from the
North. Would the North fight us?
Never, never! She would do so, if
she could find sympathy with a large
body of citizens in enr Southern
States never without; but this could
not occur, because whatever course
Mississippi and other southern Slates
take, it must be sanctioned by the
people in ibeir fevereign capacity, and
hence even men opposed to secession
will never fake up arms apamst their
own State after it once declares in
favor of tecession. We can therefore
have few traitors, should the' southern
States determine upon secession.
