GEORGE W. TOWNS,
Goverocr of said State.
To the Electors thereof —Greeting :
Having been officially informed, that the Con
gress ofthe United States has admitted California
into the Union of the States of this Confederacy,
upon equal terms with the original States, a duty
devolves upon me in the performance of which,
I shall trespass upon the public but briefly.
An unfeigned deference for public opinion,
and the profound regard I entertain for the wi*
dotn, firmness, and patriotism of my fellow citi
zens of Georgia, will not justify me, in a paper
of this character, in repeating my known and
unchanged opinion as to the duty of the South
in repelling Free-soil encroachment, and arrest
ing,by all proper means, usurpation by Congress.
Whatever is compatible with the honor and
obligations of the People of this State lo the
country, its laws, and its institutions, 1 doutt
not, will receive their warm support.
In an hour of danger—when your institutions
are in jeopardy—your feelings wantonly out
raged, your social organization derided, your
honor deeply wounded and the Federal Consti
tution violated by a series ofaggressive ineasuves
all tending to the consummation of one object,
the abolition of slavery—when your equal right
to occupy and enjoy the common territory of all,
has been denied you, in the solemn form of law,
under pretences the most shallow, it well be
comes you to assemble, to deliberate, and coun
sel together for your mutual preservation and
Whatever course the extraordinary events by
w hich we are encompassed, will demand or jis
tify, must he left, as it should be, to the patriot
ism, firmness and prudence of the people them
selves. Upon them devolves the duty of re
dressing present wrongs, and providing other
safeguards, for future security- Neither the one
nor the other of which, however, will ever be
effectually accomplished, until, by patriotic ef
forts. perfect harmony and concord of feelirt"
are restored, and confidence and concert of ac
tion producep among the people of the South.
In view, therefore, of the atrocious free soil
sentiment arid policy, not merely oftlte non
slav eholding fetates, hit* of the Government—of
the imminent peril to which the institution of
slavery is reduced by the act of Congress admit
ting the State o r California into the Union, with
a Constitution containing the principle of the
Wilmot Proviso, in defiance of our warning and
earnest remonstrance—in view- ofthe deplorable
fact that some diversity of opinion exists in some
of the Southern States as to the proper inode of
redressing the wrongs, and averting the dangers
which all must see and feel, let me, fellow citi
zens, earnestly entreat you to eu thate for each
other a deep and abiding sentiment of fraternal
regard and confidence. Approach the task, from
which there is no escape, ofdeeiding upon your
duty to Georgia and the country, with a firm
step, but not without calm, deliberate and pa
tient investigation, consulting neither fears nor
dangers on the one hand, nor permitting your
selves, from exasperated feelings of wrong on
the other, to In* rashly urged to extreme measures
which have not received the full sanction of your
judgment Then 1 shall not despair of seeing
the whole State, as one man, proposing nothing
beyond what the emergency may demand, or
failing to perform whatever patriotism, honor
and right, may require ar your hands.
The General Assembly of this St,re, by an
act approved Bth February, 1850, having requir
ed me, upon the happening of certain events, one
of which is the admission of California as a State
into the Union, to issue a proclamation, ordering
an election to be held in each and every county I
for Delegates to a Convention ofthe People of
this State, to take into consideration such meas
ures as comport with the extraordinary posture |
of our relations to our ro-States, and to decide j
upon what steps are necessary and proper to he
taken compatible with our honor and eonstitu- j
tional obligations, as well as more effectually to
secure our right ofproperty in slaves, and lo ar
rest all aggressions, by one section of the Union,
upon the free enjoyment of the constitutional
l ights of the other, and lastly to preserve invio
late the equality ofthe States of the Union, a*
guarantied under the Constitution : Therefore,!

No star in yonder sky that shines
Cun light like woman's eye impart;
The earth holds not in all its mines
A gem so rich as woman’s heart;
Her voice is like the music sweet
Poured out from airy harp alone—
Like that when storms more loudly beat,
it yields a clearer, richer tone.
A wutn«n*» love's a holy light,
That brighter, brighter burns for ave ;
Y’cars cannot dim its radiance bright,
N’er even falsehood quench its ray ;
But like the Star of Bethlehem,

It marshals with its steady flame
The erring soul of man to Heaven.

Southern Rights .fleeting in
Ageeably to the call of the true fr iends
of the South, without regard to party, op
posed to the admission of Colifornia into
the Union with her present boundaries,
excluding Southern property, the abolition
of the slave trade in the District of Colum
bia, &c., a large and enthusiastic assem
bly converted at the Market House, when
upon the motion of Daniel Chandler, Esq-
Cols. Jas. S. Deas and P. Phillips, were
called to preside, and G. G. Henry and
H. D. Blair appointed Secretaries.
On taking the chair, Col Phillips, in ex
planation of the cause ofthe meeting, in a
very eloquent and impressive manttorglanc
ed at the wrongs to which the south had
been subjected, and clearly exhibited that
in the adoption of the so called “peace
measures” at the last sesssion of Congress,
there is nothing calling for the demonstra
tions and rejoicings about to he made
here from any who properly appreciates
the Rights of the South.
Col. B. Boykin was then loudly called
for, and he ascended tho stand, greeted by
the l.enrfy cheers of the audience. Hav.
ing in a powerful and spirit stirring speech
addressed ihe meeting on the grave ques
tions which had brought them together, he
offered the following.
The Constitution of the United States
is based upon, the equality of tho States
which compose the Union.
It was adopted to promote domestic
tranquaility and secure the enjoyment of
The people of the Southern States,
therefore, claim under the Constitution,
not only the right to hold their properly, of
whatever description, but to hold it in
peace, from nil agresssions from Congress,
the nonslaveholding States, or the the citi
In the midst of the great excitement
produced throughout to land by the threa
tened exclusion ofthe South from all par
ticipation in the territories, to acquire
which she had been most lavish with her
treasure and the best blood of her citizens,
the eyes of her citizens were turned to
Congress, the Great Council of this vast
confederacy of Slates, in the hope that it
would soexecute justice as to preserve un
impaired those great principles out of
w»ich tho Union sprung, and with the ex
tintf.ion of which the Union must expire.
Th is just expectation of the Southern
peope has been fearfully disappointed.—
Their anneals have been ynhqeded their
re mo vslances heard with indifference,
(heir offer of compromise treated with con
tempt. The citizens of Mobile here as
semble freely to discussthc questions which
so deeply affect their interests and to as
sure their fellow-citizens of other portions
of Alabama, that there is a sentiment in
the commercial emporium of the largest
cotton growing Slate which is true to the
••Great Section” with which this city is
identified, and which in any and every
emergency may be relied upon for the
vindication ol its rights.
Be it therefore Resolved, That the act of
Congress admitting California as a Slate,
sanctions the usurpation by which a few
itinerant speculators seized upon the whole
Pacific coast from tho boundary of Oregon
down to the 32d deg. That this act is
without precedent and againt constitu
tional right ami makes Congress the re
sponsible agent in the monstrous fraud by
which the South has been foiever excluded
from four-fifths in va!\tf of all the territory
acquired from Mexico.
Resolved, That the successful usurpa
lion of the Californians has become a law
tothe New Mexicans ; they have paid the
same consideration, and now demand the
same privilege and immunity, and with a
Constitution already formed,excluding the !
South, the days of her interdiction may ;
now he counted.
Resolved, That Congress has no power
to abolish or to establish slavery, but it has |
power and is hound to exercise it fur the
protection of such property as is recog*
nized by the laws of the several States.
The opinion entertained and promul
gated byamajorit) of Congress that the
emigrrtitTrtt ofaoitlltcru men with their pro
perty tothe territories is forbidden by the
Mexican laws still in force; and the refusaj
by that majority to repeal these laws and
thus throw open this common property to
the common use and occupation ofthe peo
ple of the different States, at once exposes
the rank hypocrisy which lurks in the cry
of "compromise and harmony.”
Resolved, The boundary of Texas, as
she has defined it and as Congress has
frequently admitted it to he, is well defined
and free from doubt. To defend the in.
tegrity ofthis boundary, Congress declared
war against Mexico, and the release by
Mexico in the treaty of peace of all her
rights,left Texas free from every pretence
The South is therefore justly starled by
the proposition on the part of the North to
take from this territory area enough for
two largo States, to increase the prepon
derance of power now existing against the
South, and thus strengthen the hands of
those who seek her political degradation.
Resolved, That the abolition of the “slave
trade” (at this particular juncture) in the
District of Columbia was a truckling sub
mission to the spirit of fanaticism.
On the 20th of December, 1818, Mr.
Gott, of New York, introduced into the
House of Representatives the following
“Whereas, the traffic now prosecuted in
this metropolis of the republic, in human
beings as chattels, is contrary to natural
justice and to the fundamental principles
of our political system, and is notoriously
a reproach to our country throughout
Christendom, anil a serious hindrance to
the progress of republican liberty among
the nations of the earth. Therefore,
“ Resolved , That the committee of the
District of be instructed to re
port a bill as soot, as practicable, prohibit
ing the slave trade in said District.”
Mr. Gott moved the previous question,
which was sanctioned, and tho resolution
was adopted by a vote of yeas 98, to nays

vention of the Southern members imme

sequences of the act, repeated their in
What can mark the rapid course of e
vents so well a3 the fact that in les3 than
two years, Gott’s resolution is carried into
an enactment by an overwhelming major

Resolved, That the act for the recovery
of “fugitive slaves,” passed immediately
after tho adoption of the constitution, was
sufficiently effective as long as public sen
timent at the North remained true to con
The South can see nothing in the pas
sage of the late bill, which will operate
records show that one half of the Northern
Representatives voted against the bill,
while a larger portion of the remainder
refused to vote at all; but three whig re
presentatives, North of Mason & Dixon s
line voting for the bill.
Resolved , That we cannot acquiesce,
much less can we rejoice in this consumma
tion, still the mode and measure of the re.
sistance we leave to the people of Alabama
in convention assembled. Each State in
convention must judge for itself; —but we
now distinctly express the opinion that if
any of the Southern States, acting through
a convention, should for these aggressions
secede from the Union, it would become
the duty of this State as of all other South
ern States, sternly to resist the application
to such State of any physical coercion,
should such be attempted by the govern
ment of the United States.

speech of more than his usual command

profound attention, and which wits repeat
edly interrupted by hursts of enthusiastic
applause, and concluded by submitting the
following resolution :
Resolved, That it is the duty of the
Southern people in this conjuncture to
give every encouragement to the labor and
industry of the people within their limit#
by preferences and premiums ; to patron
ise mechanic arts and pursuits at home; to
provide by subscription, for the erection
of manufactures; to maintain their own
teachers, schools, colleges, and churches I
to discriminate in their commerce against
those cities and indiriduals who show hos
tility to their institutions, or maintain po
litical alliance with their enemies ; and
thus by fostering the interests of domestic
industry, education and intercourse to lay
the foundations of a genuine Southern In
dependence in the good will and mutual
dependence of all classes of their citizens.
The following letter from Gen. Mira
beau B. Lamar, who was expected to have
been present, was then read, which was
responded to by three cheers for the gal
Mobile, Oct. 6,1850.
To Messrs. D. Chandler, B. Boykin, P-
Philips, and John A. Campbell,
Gentlemen :—lt will not bet convenient
for uie to comply with your wishes ex
pressed in your note of to day.
I however sympathise with you fully it»
the objects you have in view, arfd sincere
ly hope that your efforts 'to arouse your
Southern follow-citizens to n full sense of
their danger and of their duty may he at
tended with the best results. In the great
contest now going on between the North
and the South on the subject of slavery, I
am pleased to see that the chief talents of
our country is on the side of the South,
yet it is no small matter of regret that the
cause of abolition should he so formidable
in this section as to tender public meetings
of this character necessary.
The late triumphs of the free soil patty
in Congress have greatly invigorated their
friends in the South, and so long as thosu
shall continue to rejoice in the progress of
their principles, it will he the duty of the
true patriot to vindicate his rights, and
stand by his country.

The True Issue. —The Submission
ists, seeing the odium of their name and
position, are making a desperate effort to
change the true issue now presented to the
people—which is, submission to free soil
ism,or abolitionism —for “to this complex*
ion it must come at last,” —or resistance.
Instead of this they are trying to hide the
shame and disgrace which attaches to the
out and out Submissionists, by callinf
themselves “ Union men." Let not the
people be deceived by so poor a mask.—
“Submission is the name of their party,
Submissionists let them be called. Con
tradistinguished to them is the "Southern
Rights” party—a party opposed to North
ern aggressions and insult—opposed" to
rejoicing over the late acts of
whereby the South has been degraded ;
and in favor of resisting them by such
means as may be determined upon by the
majority of the Southern Rights men**—
