Virginia Resolution* of 1798-
Pronouncing the alien and sedition laics to
be unconstitutional, and defining the rights
cf the l totes. Drawn by Mr. Madison.
In the Virginia House of Delegates,
Friday, December 21 1798.
Resolved, That the General Assembly of
Virginia, doth unequivocally express a firm 1
resolution to maintain and defend the Consti
tution of the Un'ted States, and the constitu
tion of this State, against every aggression
either foreign or domestic; and tlmt they will
support the Government of the Un'ted States
in all measures, warranted by the former.
That this assembly most solemnly declares,
a warm attachment to the union of the States,
to maintain which it pledges its powers; and,
that for this end, it is their duty to watchover
and oppose every inf'action of those princi
ples which constitute the only basis of that
Union, because a faithful observance of them,
can alone secure its existence and the pub
Tnat this Assembly doth explicitly and per
emptorily declare, That it views the powers
el the Federal Government, as resulting from
the comnact, to which the States are parlies,
as limited by the plain sense and intentiun ol
the instrument constituting that compact, as no
farther valid than they are authorized by the
grants enumerated in that compact; and that in
case of deliberate; palpable and dangerous ex
ercise cf other powers, not granted by the
said compact, the States, who are parties
thereto, have the right, and are in duty bound,
to interpose, f. r arresting the progress of the
evil, and for maintaining within their respec
tive limits, the authorities, rights, and liberties
appertaining to them.
That the General Assembly doth also express
its deep regret, that this spirit has in sundry
instances, been manifested by the Federal
Government to enlarge its powers by forced
constructions of the constitutional charter
which defines them;and, that indications have
appeared of a design to expound cettain gen
eral phrases (which having been copied from
the very limited grant of poworß in the lorinet
articles of cjnfedertion were t!-.e less liable to
hn misconstruedjLsi) as to destroy the rnean
i ligand effect, nft lie particular enuuraratispa,
wjTObfcnerqflsariaihr explains, and limits*v£k
degrees, into one sovereignty, the,
obvious“'(er dency and incvciable reeuLof
which would be, the preshql
repTOicAII t>JHem oil Stifthe, into?
an nb-olute, or at best, a mixed monarchy.^
That ihcGencral Asseinbtyrlmtl particularly
protest against the palpable, and alarming in
fractions of the constitution, in the two late
cases of the “Alien ahd Sedition acts.” passed
at the last session of congress; the first of
which exercises a power no where delegated
to the- Federal Government, and which by
uniting legislative and judicial powers to
those of executive, subverts tne general prin
ciples of free government, as well us the par
ticular organization and positive provisions of
the federal constitution; and the other of
w hich acts, exercises in like manner, a pow
er not delegated by tho Constitution, but
on the contrary, expressly and positively
forbid lon by’ono of the amendments thereto
a power, which more than any other, ought
to produce univer.-al alarm, b ciuso it is lev
ell d against the right of freely examining
public charactors and measures, and of free
communication among the pcoplo thereon,
which has ever been justly deemed the only
efll ctual guardian ot overy other right.
That this State having by its convention,
wbwh ratified the Federal Constitution, ex
pressly declared, that among other essential
rights, “tho liberty of conscience and t e
press cannot be cancelled, abridged, restrain
ed, or modified by any authority ol tiio United
(States,” and from its extremo anxiety to guard
these rights from every possible attack of
sophistry and ambition, having with other
Staler, recommended on amendment for that
purpose, which amendment was, in due time,
annexed to the constitution, it would mark a
reproachful inconsistency, and criminal degen
eracy, if an indifference were now shown to
the most palpable violation of one of the rights
thus declared and secured ; and to the estab
lishment of a precedent which may be fatal to
That the good pet pie of this commonwealth,
having ever felt, and continuing to feel the
most sincere affection for their brethren of the
other States ; tho truest anxiety for establish
ing and perpetuating the union of all; and the
most scrupulous fidelity to that constitution,
which is tho pledge of mutual friendship, and
the instrument of mutual happiness; the Gen
eral Assembly doth solemnly appeal to the
like dispositions in the other Slates, in confi
dence, that they will concur with the common
wealth, in declaring, as it docs hereby declare,
that the acts aforesaid, are unconstitutional;
and that the necessary and proper measures
will b&tnken by each for co operating wißf
this State, in maintaining unimpaired the au
thorities, rights, and liberties, reserved to the
States respectively, or to the people.
That tlie governor be desired to transmit a
copy of the loregoing resolutions to the exec
utive authority of each of the other States,
with a request, that the same may bo commu
nicated to the legislature thereof; and that a
copy be furnished to each of the Senators and
Representatives representing this State in the
Congress of the United States.

We would takr occasion to suggest to ad

We beg many of those who itave been so

them the last number. We had made a lib

it was so much greater than we anticipated

Ail humble follower W*Xpollo
Some pretender to wit, (whose brows, if
examined, would bo found encircled with
withered bay leaves ,) in the Chronicle ol the
9th instant, addressed the Senior Editor
of this paper, ever the signature of “G.”—
He calls us to tntk, because of the publica
tion of a sentence from a letter addressed to us
by a citizen of Elbert, in which it was stated
by he writer that he does not “ know a sin
gle Whig who intends to vote f >r Mr. Cobb.”
The letter was very brief, and one of busi
ness. The writer had probably not met with
a Whig who said lie would vote for Mr.
Cobb and probably intended so to express him
“ G” says, “ now, Mr. Smythe, it is gen
erally thought that you are a very rash man,
and somewhat of a greenhorn withal, and af
ter this, every body will swear to it.”
The writer of “G” goes on then, as he
says, lor our benefit, to give us some ac
count of a society in Eiberton called the
“G” published his letter, no doubt, to get
upon the ladder of fame'. We extract from it
as follows to aid him in that higli-souled pur
pose. He said:
“ I will give you their names, as I have
rcason’to believe 1 know them all. There is
Obadinii Tugmutton, senior, the father, Mrs.
Jrrusha Tugmutton, tho mother—then they
have sons, to wit . Obadiah.jr, Timothy and
and Jonathan—and daughters, Miss Jemima,
Miss Nancy and numerous grand children
Now, these area curious iamily. T ney are
strong believers in tho doctrine of “ manifest
destiny,” and have taken up the idea that
their manifest destiny is to be the plague and
torment of green-horns like yourself. Why,
sir, since you have swallowed that letter from
“ an intelligent and very, responsible gentle
man," you will get a bucket from these Tug
muttons once a week lor at least the balance
of vour life, for it must be that your “ in
telligent and very responsible” correspondent
is none other titan the veritable Obkdiah him
self, or it may be Miss Nancy. I could
scarcely tell you in a week of all the singular
practices of these Tugmuttons. They pub
lish a pnper called the “ Night Hawk,” a
strong Constitutional Union paper, in which
strict and impartial justice is done to all evil
doers and the rest of munk'nd. You will
be reported in their next issue to be sick of
their simples. They are strong Union men
too. They celebrated the 4th of July to day
in their own peculiar nay. They had a
horseback procession, dressed in their Sun
day clothes—with beautiful red, blue, black,
and yellow stripes down their legs. The
whole fomily were out, except old Mrs. Je
rusha, who it was said, is rather poorly, but
is not considered dangerous. Both the girls
were out, and the amiable Miss Nancy car
ried in her own fair hands a beautiful banner
with the name of “Cobb” inscribed thereon
in large letters. A word in your year, Mr.
Smythe, She is accused of rather falling
in love with Mr. Cobb three years ago, when
he was round here electioneering for Con
gress, though he being a married man, she
would die before she would own it. I am a
subscriber at:d constant reader of the “ Night
Hawk” and will send you my next number.
I wonder you don’t exchange with it. It
would give give you some valuable hints as
to the best method of conducting a political
If the above should establish “ G’s” char
acter, as a veritable wil, it will show that one
may be both a wit and a greenhorn, for we
take it, that no one but a greenhorn, of tbe
Constitutional Union Party, would voluntari
iy declare to the world that these Tugmut
tons published a Constitutional Union paper !!
That, however, is not ail surprising, such a
paper would be more compatible with the
views of the Tugmuttons, than a Southern
Rights paper would be. “G” i 9 welcome to the
aid of tbe Tugmutton sheet. In his admira
tion of it, if he is not checked, he may be so
great a greenhorn as to dub all the Consti
tutional Union papers of the State, tee Tcg
ktttton Press of Georgia !
But “ G” should be more cautious in charg
ing other people wi h being “ crazy” as he
does us, when he actually makes Mr. Cob!
the object of the lenderest affections of Mis
Nancy Tugmutton !!! Mr. Cobb
ly, for some time, been under some singula
influence ! That love case of Miss Nancy’
ought lobe enquired into! It may be tha '
Mr. Cobb is under a Tugmuttos spell !!
Let his malady be what it may, we believ
the people will cure it by administering J£
him a nauseating dise in October.
We now call upon all the Tugmuttons to
go as speedily as possible to catch “ G” as ttt
falls from the ladder of fame, feet upwards and
his hair streaming over bis upturned eye#,
to the mud from which he aspired to asceoit.
“G’s” ‘‘dear Mr. Smythe,”did not know that
l he extract from the Elbert letter had been
placed in the hands of of toe compositor,
he saw it in the Republic. The letter was
left upon the editorial table, and that extract
was made by another, under the supposition
that it was to be used. Mr. Smythe regrettad
the next day that it had been Inserted,
was done without his knowledge or advise
If any one,therefore, should write the “buck
et letters” to Mr. 8., to which “ G” refers, fie
will jbe as great a greenhorn as “G” hiqt
' self, and a fool besides. ♦

The Southern Rights Congressional C<ji
1 vet.lion will hold its session, this day, at the
1 City llall. We learn that it will meet at *f2
o’clock M. a
Minerva, Houston County, July sth, ’it.
Messrs. Editors :—The lion. Howell Cobb
■ appeared before the sovereigns of this Co., fin
the 3d, cheered by a large audience,at least one
third Southern High’s men. He commenced
in a of generalities,
mostly conTTrcjed with the slavery question,
res< lution'from a Convention of Demo-
I setting forth the faith
not a vqininal norl intervwation, and leavitig
the decis%i, whether slaved should or should
not be a part of their State organization to the
territories, whenever they made a proper appli
cation for admission as a State; p.aced the re
sponsibility of his course on the Compromise
measures upon his constituents, affirming tmt,
from the obvious meaning of the above resolu
tion, he considered himself as'instructed, «vs
dsntly forgetting that he gave to Gen. Ca»s’
letter a meaning which produced the resolu
tion above referred to, as passed by the Demo
cratic parly, and which meaning was disavow
al by Gen. and his non-intervention repu
diated by the Democratic party. He having
deceived them, they were honorably releyed
from any ob'igation to continue in the advoca
cy of a measure, which was hostile not only
to iheir best interest, but was the very reverse
of what they had fondly and confidently be
lieved i> to he. He stated that the opposition of
the North to slavery was no greater now than
it was at the formation of the Government;
gave briefly the history of the slavery agita
tion ; pronounced the Compromise, wise, lib
eral and just; that the South had no cause ol
complaint; that her position upon the rctirt!
at Washing'on was infinitely bstter thanTra.iT
! been for thirty years, and that for the first time
in the histo-y of this Government, since the
Missouri Compromise, had tlmt grand and glo
rious principle been asserted contrary to the
principle of that Compromise, so vital to the
South, and So triumphantly sustained in the
bill for the adjustment of the Texas boundary ,
that the portion of Texas North of 36, 30 was
relieved of the “ incubus ” that appertained to
it anterior to that adjustment; approved fully
and cordiall" every measure, even tc the abo
lition of the slave trade in the D.strict of Co
lumbia; that <t was uothing mire than the
passage of a law ot Maryland, in the District,
—the only State that had nny right to complain.
He then reverted to the Fugitive Slave Law—
the North declaring to the South, that if she
framed any law, however stringent in its pro
visions, that the North would pass it ; ttial it
had encountered expected opposition, but had
been triumphantly sustained, even in Massa
chusetts, and though violently assailed sonn
alter its passage, the Northern penp'e wereae
quiescing, and that opposition to it was becom
ing rapidly diminished; that he hod not chang
ed a solitary principle, and" would not, even to
the crossing of i I or the dotting of an i, and
informed a Southern Rights Democrat that he
wished to be supported purely upon Demo
cratic principles. Upon the right of secession,
he was non-committal ; placed the responsibil
ity upon the peopl • —“ that wherever Georgia
planted Her standard, thar he would be found,”
but modestly intimated that the Government
had amply provided means for enforcing the
laws ; that the “ South should not deceive it
self by the belief that our Northern brethren
were all cowards—they were as brave a peo
ple as ti ed the earth.” (Here I wished an op
portunity of reading from the history of the
Mexican War.) He alluded to the charge of
being a traitor, and made quite a pathetic de
fence—bringing his past ac's to the vindica
tion of his good name, against an aspersion so
foul; that if a traitor, he had been rendered
so by the strictest fidelity to the sentiments
and interests of his constituents; that if ht vo
ted for the Oregon Bill, that those who now
complained had repeatedly re-elected him;
and as to the charge of putting abolitionists
and freesoilers upon Committees, he justified
himself, that as Speaker of the House of Rep
resentatives of the United States Congress, he
had t.) organize those Committees, and not sim
ply as a member of Congress from Georgia.
He then fell behind the “Masked Battery,”
at d poured forth a tremendous volley of fourth
of July sentiments upon the virtues and wis
dom of our “ Revolutionary sires”—their dy
ing exhortations to preserve the Union ; that
unless the Georgia Platform is sustained, (and
himself forty degrees under it,) that this Union
will be rent asunder,and the “ blooming, nros
perous, sunny South drenched in fraternal
blood that the adoption of the Georgia Plat
form has added the most beautiful flower to
tnat chaplet of “ orieut pearls” that so grace
fully entwines the brow of the Empire Stale
of the South ; in nil political agitation of a sec
tional charac er, it would prove to Georgia “ a
cloud by day, and a pillar of fire by night.”
He-converted, in two hours, three of the Con
stitutional Union men to Southern Rights,
and his friends neither invited nor were willing
for us to be heard, as Mr. Cobb would tax their
patience to do himself and the great issues
justice. He apologised to those who beard
him last fall for the sameness of his speeches
—evidently giving on all occasions the stere
otyped edition, and not possessing genius
enough to break their monotony, either by
bursts of eloquence or the pungency of his

Messrs. Editors : —The communication
published in your paper of Tuesday morning
Bth inst., detailing the revelations of a “Yan
k e Book Pedler,” against the Mechanics’
Convention, and the comments of the writer
against Mechanics, Yankees and Union men,
may not be considered important enough to
1 merit notice fr >m others.
If such writers, as “a Georgia Whig,” de
sire to make an issue with the principles ad
i vanced by the Georgia Convention of Me
i chanics, let them net mingle with it abase ol

convection were Georgians and an overwhel

Soulh-'rn men. A Southern man was Presi

drew up and presented the report which was
adopted. There was not a sentiment uttered
in the Convention, nor can a line be found
in their preamble and resolutions, which an
intelligent and honest Southern man can ob
ject to. The action of that convention, can pass,
unscathed, through the most fiery ordeal,
and w II find supporters clustering around it
wherever its policy may be discussed. “Its
„ trust was well founded, and it fears no dan
