upon the subject of nullification, has but this

all subjects connected with the public interest,

I am opposed to nullification, believing it
to be, neitiicr a peaceable or constitutional
remedy against the evils complained of—bin
a revolutionary measure when reduced to
practice. And whatever feelings of hostility
I may entcrloin towards tho protective system,
or however unequal in ila operations, unjust
and oppressive in its consequcncos.l may con
sider it, I am not at this lime prepared to join
in the support of any measure which must in
evitably end in the dissolution of our govern-

The importance of tho crisis is such in my

to demand of those who present themselves for

The report of Don Pedro’s victory at Vo-

The apprehension of the 1'rionds‘of Portu

arrived at Falmouth, from Oporto, and had
brought intelligence of tho total failure of Don

told, and had multiplied versions, but in every
aspect the news appeared disastrous. The

The Election.—Wc close this week the publication of
the answers to the Augusta Committee, of those gen
tlemen who arc candidates for Congress, on the sub
ject of the Tariff and Nullification. AVe have been
anxious to do this before the election, in order that their
views on those important subjects should he fully known
to the people. We ubserve that an effort hae been
made by one or two leading Clark papers, to injure the
election of Messrs. AA'ilde, Foster and Gilmer, three
distinguished and patriotic individuals, who are now
before the people as candidates for Congress—they have
been act down by them ae nulliticrs. With regard to
Messre. Wilde and Gilmer, we appeal to their letters
published to-day, for a satisfactory refutation of the
calumny. Col. Foster’s speech at the Lexington din-
tier, if no other proof could be adduced, is clear and
explicit as In hit sentiments—he is in favor of a Sou
thern Convention, end not nullification.
We are aware that erroneous opinions have gone
abroad with regard to our feelings and senlimenta on
the subject of this election. They litve doubtless
grown out of the fact of our uncompromising opposi
tion to the doctrine of nullification. Many individuala
have concluded, that with our view* on this subject,
we could not support an individual for any office, who
profeasrd it We disclaim the inference. AA’e are,
and have always been, too warmly attached to the
great Republican party of this State, to allow an isnta
of individuala who feel ns we feci, and act as we would
have them act on all other leading questions of pol, cv
both local and general. Whatever may have been o«
opposition to the opinions of any of our candidate with
•I'gard to nullification, it has been confined to thej,
tews on this particular subject, without extending to
heir claims to our suffrages. We felt ourselves called
ipon, by every dictate of honor and integrity, to npp ott
i doctrine which wc believed to ho dangerous to the
country, and hazardous lo the interests of the party t 0
which we belong j but in opposing it we disclaim the
imputation of having the leasl desire lo injure, on ihj,
ground, Ihe election of one single individual now before
the people as a candidate for Congress. Were nullifi.
era proposed as candidates for the Legislature, or f or
seats in the contemplated Convention, we in candor
must admit it would be a most suicidal act for us to
yield them our support—in Congress we conceive the
case is different. The advocates of the doctrine f r , ;rn
other Stntes, have in that body, as we believe unjuati
fiably, opposed many of tho measures of the present
administration; and it has been asked—will not i) l0
nulliticrs of Georgia do tile same? We know not «l lat
may he the prevalent sentiments among the adherents
of that doctrine, but we arc well assured thst none of
our candidates will be found in tho opposition at Wash
melon. This objection, then, which we regard at t|..
only important one, though valid in its general app|p
cation, will not do for the individual cases before us —
la other respects their orthodoxy on questions involving
the interests of the South, and their distinguished sbik
ilies to exert an influence ov. r those questions, gi vt
them high claim: to the suffrages of the |>eoplc of Geor
The ticket for members of our State Legislature from
this county, published above, needs no recommendation
from us. The gentlemen who comprise it are
known, and w c trust the result of the polls on Monday
next, will sanction their claims to the confidence of
their fellow citizens.
;CPAftcr the columns of ottr paper for the present
week had been nearly filled, we received a eommuni-
cation over Ihe signature of “A Plain Dealer,” Ihe oh-
ject of which appears to he, to correct romc illegal
erroneous statements in the Georgia Courier, with re
spect to the late meeting in Clarkestillc. We are un
able to give it publicity this week; hut if the respected
author will intimate his wish to that effect, and direst
it of some personality which wo at all times decline in
serting, it shall a.qrcnr hereuher.
“ A Plain Dealer” vindicates Gen. Cleveland, Co!.
T. J. Rusk, and others who advocated the resolutions
first introduced, from the charge of nullification,' states
that they were the advocates of Stale Rights, but op.
posed to the South Carolina doctrine, and lo uncondi
tional submission. He says further, that Ihe repotuf
there being between eight hundred and a Ibouud
persons present, is exaggerated; and that “all sin
advocated tho substitute were Tariff men but two, mi
all but two were Anti-Jackson men.” The publish'.!
