pon all subjects relating to the usurpations of the Federal Government, and especially

ose principles of economy and Republican simplicity, upon which our Federal system is

eisablc, that the Federal and State Governments should be kept within the limits of their
institutional sphere# of action. Intolerable assumptions and usurpations, which will not

powor to accomplish this end, must unquestionably reside in the respective sovereign-!
. It is inconsistent with every principle of liberty and free government, for the politi- i
v reserved rights of a State, to be confided to, or dependent on the decision of any power i
isier Heaven, except it be the wiil of her own people. When burthens become insuf*

I Ido not consider.the mode and manner of producing these joint deliberations material

I t is only necessary, that these measures should emanatfc directly, from the enlightened
■ ai.d delib-. rate will of the people ; founded upon ihclr inherent and unalienable rights; ad
mittod to In- extraordinary,ami intended to meet a most extraordinary crisis. No state can
act efficiently, in sustaining her just rights against a miglfty power, unless her own popula
tion aro united in the policy to be pursued, icannot consider it advisable, for a single
•'state, upon her separate action, to undertake to force a rcd.vss of grievances from the Fed
era! Government, while her sister States, equally interested are not even consulted, as to j
he policy to be pursued. Principles o( common courtesv concede to the members j
oi the same confederacy, or copartnership, a rigiit to participate in all councils, wh- re the i
subject undcrconsidcration, and the policy to be adopted, arc equally interesting to each |
member. \> henever a case however shall arise, wherein a single state shall Ik- oppressed !
i by tlie usurpations ot Federal power anil that pressure shall he confined to her local inte
rest alone, and consequently produce no identity of feeling and interest in tlie other States;
lii.-n i wouid consider it the incumbent duty of the aggrieved State, to judge end act for
nerseif, independently of the advice and opinions of others.
It is due to the sovereign character of every state of the Union, to maintain itsterri
orial rights ar.d policy ever its own population. These are rights which can- never he
I sutrciidcreiMiy a <rec state, or submitted to the arbitration of others. But upon the sub
ject oi the i arfl, shall Georgia undertake to rulress the wrongs of tiic w hole south ? Sliall j
we riot hearken to the loiee and movements of our-siStec States, who agree with us in
principle and feeling ! Or shall we preciptantly rush forward upon a novel and untried the
ory, which may disgust our sister States, end in abortion, and prove to he worse than
submission itself. J'he States whicli agree in principle, must he brought to act in concert,
before they can reasonably hope to produce the consummation desired by the opponents!

Separate action, upon this subject, is calculated to engender strife and disunion, anarchy
and confusion, among breshren off the same principle.
.1 he mystical doctrine of nullification, as contended for by its advocates, has only tend
cd to bewilder the minds ol the people, inflame their passions, and picparc them fori
anarchy and revolution. Wherever it spends, it engenders the most bitter strifes and;
animosities, and dissolves the jmost endearing relations of lift-. 1 believe nullification, to I
be unsctnid, dangerous and delusive, in practice as Veil as theory. Its advocates have, ;
with great ability, endeavoured to make this theory harmonize with the principles anil
operations of our Federal and States Systems of government. But in my opinion the'very
essence of their doctrine tends directly to destroy all harmony between the Federal and
state governments and must inevitably produce the .most direct and vexatious conflicts,
whenever it may be attempted, by a State, to enforce "the theorv of nullification. Icm
unable to comprehend or conceive of the peaceable constitutional harmony, which would
attend a measure emanating from one twenty-fourth p-irt of the. Sovereign pdwer of tlm
Union ; whicli measure should stop the revenue operations of the -Federal Government.— j
Great ingenuity has been exercised, to blend this new theory with the admirable princi-)
l!es and doctrines of State rights, as sot forth and successfully advocated by Thomas Jef
ferson. But after tlie most diligent research, I have not been able to find, where .Mr. Jef
ferson ever attempted to delude the people into the belief, that when reason failed, and en
durance became intolerable, a single" State could by its act of nullification, force the
Federal Government to retract from its measures -of usurpation. Mr. Jefferson would have
called such a measure, on the part of a State, by its plain, proper name—resistance to in
Georgia should not suffer herself to be deluded or fettered into tlie belief, that her rights
have heretofore been maintained upon the principles and doctrines of nullification, as 1
contended for by its present advocates. It is true, we may look back with pride and pain, j
on our past conflicts with Federal usurpation. Upon several “occasions, we have been j
compelled to throw ourselves upon our reserved rights, and resist. Federal encroachments;
but we have never veiled ourselves in the flimsy garni mt of peaceful, constitutional nul-j
lification. In these delicate and highly responsible acts, Gcorgit has always relied on her!
own population, the justice of her cause; and the virtue-ami intelligence of .the people of'
the United States, to sustain her unquestionable, constitutional rights. And hitherto our 1
confidence has not been misplaced ; we have had able friends and advocates in every part
of the Union, who have stood nv us hi times of the gteatest peril. We are at present, very
improperly charged with nullifying the intercourse laws and Indian Treaties of the United
Statss: when in fact, these laws and treaties were set aside and had become measurably ob
solete, by the acts anil assumptions of the Cherokee Indians themselves. Georgia, by her
course of policy, has only nullified the arrogant assumptions of sovereign power, claimed
and set up, by a remnant of the aboriginal race, within her acknowledged, chartered limits.
Finally, fellow-citizens, lotussfrive to be of one. mind.—Let our measures bo founded
in Wisdom,justice and Moderation—constantly bearing m mind the sacred truth, that a
Nation, or State ‘ divided against itself, cannot stand.’’

MR. WEBSTER'S TESTIMONY
In fayou of Tin; PnnsiDEjrr of the Uni-
ted States. •
There was a “ National Republican Con
vention, in Worcester, (Mass.) on the 12lli
nit. at which the Magnus Apollo of tho North
anil East, the lion. Mr. Webster, made a
very long, a very elaborate, a very eloquent,
aid a very jcsuitical speech. In that speech
he has scanned with the eyes of a wiley and
j experienced politician, all the proiYiinet sub
-1 jecls’ of govermcntal interest, now agitating
the country. At present, we have only time
to notice onc.of them, in which the South is
deeply interested. After denouncing Presi
dent Jackson’s exercise of the Veto, as inimi
cal to the peculiar genius ofour government,*
Mr. Webster turns to that part of the Tariff,
which is called tho Protective System, anil
“ And first, what arc its principles, and
what its policy, respecting the Tariff.
Is this great question settled, or urtfcttlrd
Ami is the preset administration for or a
gainst the Tariff’?
“ Sir, the qurston is wholly unsettled, and
ihe priucipes of the nrltninistration, according
<o its most recent avow iff of these principles,
is adverse to the protecting policy, decidedly
hostile to the wliolo system, root and branch ,
and this on permanent and alleged constitu
“ Li the first phjifee, nothing has been done
!r settle tile Tariff qm.%toii. The Anti-'l'urill
gentlemen wno voted* for the late law have,
none of them, suid they would adhere to it.
On the contrary, they supported il, because,
's far ns it d was a reduction, and that
was what thef%ished ; and if they allowed this
degree "bf reduction now, it would be easier
to obtained a greater degrtfe hereafter;
and they frankly declared that their intent and
purpose was to insist on reduction, and to
pursue reduction unremittingly, till all the du
ties on imports were brought down to one
general and equal j>< r ccntaf'c, and that regu
lated by the mi re ward of the revenue,; or
that, if different rates of duty should remain
on different articles, still that the whole should
be laid for revenue, and for revenue only ;
and that they would, to the utmost of their
power, push this course of policy till protec
tion by duties, as a special object of national
policy, should be abandoned altogether in the
national courn ils. It is a delusion, there
fore, sir, to imagine that the present Tariff
stands safely on conceded ground. It cov
ers not an inch that has not been fought for,
and must again be fought for. It stinds while
its friends Can protect it, and not an hour
Now, People of the South, let us, ask what
hope have you that the protective system will
be abandoned by your political oppressors?—
None—none. M ill not too, some of our em
inent and patriotic Statesmen, were will
ing to throw our rights upon the just and
yielding condescension of the Manufacturers,
become convinced of their fatal error and
their ruinous,though honorable forbearance?
They will—they must. Mr. Clay, Mr. Ad
ams, Mr. Wirt, Mr. Dickerson, and “tlio* last
not least,” Mr. Webster, have told us, in lan
guage not to be mistaken, (Hat tiro" products
of the South must protect, by indirect taxa
tion, the manufactures Of the North and East.
Hear the hitter gentleman again re-echoing
the declaration of his party in the last congrcs.B
and coining as it does upon us, at this critical
. ueriod, it would be less than childishness to
‘■nut noon a relinquishment of
' iie system of nioyppoly. lie says, “ft is a
! delusion to imagine that the present Tarifl
stands safely on conceded ground. It cov
ers not an inch that has not been fought tor-
I It stands while its friends can protect it, and
i not an hour longer.” Here is a settled and
determined policy expressed and cvifirmed,
not liy newspaper Editors or anonymous Es
sayists, hut by the leaders of the great manu
facturing party, —a party who are determined
if possible, to make us slavishly tributary to
Ih; ir inordinate spirit of Aggrandizement.
Wc have in troth teed Mr. Webster’s as tes
timony favorable to Andrew Jacksons* Ad
ministration; and we might also with equal
truth and propriety have added, aj testimony :
in favor of the South. Hear him: “The I
principles of the Administration,(says Mr W)
according to its most recent rvnvul of these
principles, is adverse to the protecting policy,
decidedly hostile to the whole System root and
branch, and this on permanent and alidged
constitutional grounds.” And who ever
doubted it ! TTY- never doubted it—although
the misnomcrcd Union Party have appealed
to our fears'by threatening us, not only with
the Army and Navy or the U. States, but-also
with “one hundred thousand musket beariTig
freemen,” from tlie antagonist side of the Po
tomac. These gentlemen have now before
them the evidence of their idol—let them bow
dow n and worship if. The Sjate Rights Tar
ty will receivd it as they ought—as a deter
mination on the part of their Chief Magis- \
Irate to support, w ith all tlie authority guar
rantoed hiuuby his office, the long abuse*!
and violated rights of the South.

Chairman oi the Corresponding Committee of
the Convention, which met in Charlottesville
in June last, to make known to my friends in
Virginia, my feelings and wishes, in rclatiou
to the divided electoral ticket, lately present

I am aware, that under the circumstances
in which the'Committee were placed, and the
resolution of the Convention, under which
they acted, they could not have acted other
wise, than they did.
Recent events, however, have excited deep

themselves, upon this division iu our ranks,
anil cxultinglv .anticipating a triumj h fr<Sm
that cause, it as these prints se.-m lo sup*
I pose, their anticipated triumph should he r--

; ticket, it should happen, tintt the vote of Vir*
I ginia, should be lost lo the present Chief Ala
gist rate, it would he to me a source of ttjc
deepest regret. For, from the rominet’ce
iiMnt, 1 have been opposed to taking nnv
course, which would, in any degree, en
danger his re-election. In this sentiment, [
am persuaded, that iny friends concur. In
deed, i know, that some of those, who went
; most active in the Clmrlottsvifle Convention
i —did concur. I may add, that there, as tve'l
; as elsewhere, where my name itas been pre-*
i sente.d to the public, the proceedings and re
solutions have all been eoiifirinatot v of this
idea. Nor, do 1 consider this new ticket as
indispensably necessary to the attainment of
the object, which my friends have, in view
Fur, if from the course oi' oilier States, there
should seem to boa reasonable prospect of

volopeinctits in other Slates, the prospect of
uiy election should appear hopeless then
the electoral vote of Virginia, eve. , if tho
ticket nominated in my favor,should succeed,
would be unavailing, as it respected- me.—
Under these circumstanced, it is
that ugv IYm’imls throughout the common
wealth, should vote for tlie Legislature tick
et. Ido not presume to dictatelo them; but
1 feel assured, that they will receive these
suggestions in the spirit, in which they arir
1 indulge tho hope, that in the present pos
ture ol political afl'airs, they will agree with
roe, as to t-'-c propriety of this course. If.
however, they, orany pr-rtion of thorn, should
entertain a different opinion, I appeal to (iiei
candor anil sense of justice, for a correct pf.
precialitm of tlic motives,! which have in*
duccd me to make this communication.
With sentiments of esteem,

first number of our Paper. The patronage
w hich has been extended to it, is insufliciciU
to tho emplovnient of Stenographers to both
branches of the gislature;—and to report
the debates ol the one, and not the debates
ot the other, would he too partial a view cf*
the deliberations of that body, tn render them
generally interesting. A minute and par
iicular detail of its proceedings, however, os

vention, will he spread before the public, nsd
occasionally such speeches on leading sub
jects as may demand attention. This, in it
self will be a Work of great labor, nrtd the per
centum result, in a pecuniary view, must, wo
are apprehensive, fall far short ofan adequate*
compensation. The consideration, however,'
that not only the interests of the State, btif
the interests ot (he Union ara deeply involv
ed in tho great questions which will te agita
