IBlcdovald AND DISUNION.
Irieoas us Gov. M< Donald pre
tend tWt he is a good Uaion man. They
say thaitaeis willing to abide by the ac
tion of the Georgia Convention—ih.it in
a word, he, the Georgia
‘Platform. This is wlinlv untrue. The
third resolution of in’ Gu tgia Conven
tion declares that.®’
“Whilst the-Union parly does
not wholly approve ofohe Compromise,
it will abide by it as a permanent, adjust *
ment ol this sen tonal controversy.’’
Gov. McDonald, in his letter to the
Lumpkin county committee, say*:
“ I know of no adjustment bv Con
gress of the slavery nd terriioria que— |
lions. The measures so called comian [
not a single element of adjustment 1
Here is the most plain, unequivocal |
proof from Judge McDonald’s own pen,
that he does not consider the Coo pro
mise as a permanent adjustment, or a an
adjustment at all. How, then can he he
regarded as occupying ihe Georgia Plai j
form ? All this pretence, therefore, on J
the part of his supporters, is a gross and !
shameful FRAUD. Judge McDonald
is in full league with the Carolina Disun
ionist. He is so regarded bv them. In
the Southern Standard, published at
Charleston on the 20ili ins!., we find an
article in regard to the Georgia election,
which contains the following language:
“ If McDonald should be elected, it
will show a decided advance of the South
ern Rights party in Georgia ; and assure
us, that they not only agree wiili us on
the greai sovereign right of a Slate to
secede, but also, that they sympathise with
us ia opposing the aggressive measures
of ihe Federal Government, and w ill be
ready lo unite with us in some plan of re
sistance, when they see, that ihe proper
time for action has come; and that this
time cannot be far distant is apparent
from die agitations of the political a linos.-
This extract puls th*- matter in its true
light. It shows the real disunion purs
poses of McDonald and hi* followers.—
It shows that ihe question i* not as they
assert, the mere abstract right of seces
sion ; but the practical issue of DISU
NION. which is.idroitv concealed under
it! Let no Iriend of the Union be de
ceived or cajoled into Die support of Mc-
Donald or his followers upon such pre
tentions. Thev are for Disunion al
heart, for existing causes. Trust them
not—or if you do, trust them only as Die
enemies of the Government and allie* of
South Carolina. People j/f Georgia !
now is your lime lo put down this spirit
of Disunion and civil war, Trust not
man therefore of doubtful integrity.—
Vote for no one who is not openly, liank
ly and fullv lor the Union as it is—under
the Georgia Platform. Judge Me Don*
aid anti his followers are not on D>at
Platform. The Convention wliicli noni
inated him repudiated and reviled it.—
According to his own showing, ue does
not and cannot occupy it.
THE BANNER OF UNION.
The loiirtll resolution of the Georgia
Convention of Decembar, ISSO. reads as
“ Fourthly , That the State ofGeorgia,

or any refusal to admit as a State ant I

“Should, however, she time ever nr- j
rive when the condition of her remaining

unequally . I shall prepare with her “to

ing Providence my place at her disposal,
even “(as a last resort,) to a disruption
of every tie which seeks to put upon her
such debasing* terms. Nor am I panic*
ular by what name this resistance may be
characterized—whether secessions, revo* .

for a moment doubt, that should this fear

at least proves beyond a doubt, that the
election for Governor soon lo take place,
will settle it, and conclusively. Col. Jef
lerson Davis, we have seen it stated, w ill
be run by the Si inherit Rights party, in
the place of Governor Quitman. That
party of course cannot be expected to
abandon their cause, while a remnent of
fiope for success exists. YY r e are rather
pleased than otherwise with this deter
mination. When Col* Davis is defeated
by an overwhelming vote ol Mississippi,
as he will be defeated should lie run, the
question will be decisively settled in that
State, and we may hope that agitation
will cease there, as elsewheie at the
South. Let the people of Georgia and
Mississippi speak as their recent votes
have proved they teel, on the great issue
of llie day, at the next election fin Gover
nors of these States, and we may hope
that the hopelessness of future agitation
will issue the future peace and tranquili

lieved, that the triumph of the Constittt
, tional Union party in Georgia will be
most signal, at the opproaching election.
May not the assurance of an easy victo
ry, induce many to whom it may be
somewhat inconvenient to attend the
! polls, or who may find it convenient on
, other arenuuts not to do so, to* pretermit
this duty? Ifitdoesso, the etiect, we
cannot hut think, will be injurious every
way. It is not enough for the good of
the country that the Constitutional Un
ion party should succeed, but that it
should manifest its real strength at this e
lection. The country requires quiet and
repose, and an entire subsidence of the
ncrimoninii collision which has so long
and so injuriously affected our State.
It it is time that the attention of our
people, should be chiefly directed to the
promotion us their own personal anti so
cial interests. In order to this the public
mind must be settled, in relation to llie
subject which have so greatly agitated it.
And this can only be done, by a manifttv,
tot ion at the polls, of the hopelessness of
further agitation, by a true and actual
show of the will, of the great and over
whelming majority, of tlje people. Os
majority we do not etertain the shad
ow of a doubt. And we only urge the
attention of the people in the manner we
do, that this majority may be shown, and
by the conclusive proof of the hopeless
ness of further agitation, end it; aud the
country and the people be permitted once
more to bend their undivided energies
to the promotion of the interests of both.
We have a country, that may he made
the garden spot of the Union. Nature
has lavished her means of prosperity and
greatness upon our State, and it requiers
but llie properly directed enetgy of oer
people to hand it over to our children a
legacy so great and desirable, as has rarly
if ever been devised to posterity.
It lias been only of late, that Georgia
has sprung into the race of energy and
enterprise, with her older and more ad
vanced sisters. And within those few
years, she has shown how much she can
do, when her energies ate arroused.—
Her internal improvements—her schemes
of educational progress—the agricultural
advances, and Iter prospective cominer,
cial aggrandizement, are well calculated
to cheer us on lo greater effort, for the
exalation of our old and cherished moth
er. All/thnt is wanting is the quiet,
peaceful, undivided energies of or people,
to the work of their own prosperity; and
this it is hopeless to expect, while the
public interests is absotbed, by excited
polical agitation. Let the voice of Geor*
gia be heard at the polls, as we confi
dently believe is Iter will and decision, in
regard lo the issues which has agitated
our people,—let the majority which ac
tually exits, be manifested at the polls,
and we may anticipate with confidence, a
subsidence of the recent agitation, and
once more witness the energies and inter
est of our people, directed to the promo
tion of their own and their country’s
piosperity and advancement.
YVlio, with such results before them,
will fail to be at the polls ? Who will at
this crisis fail to cast in his mite towards
restortion of public tranquility ?Who, on
this most important of all elections, will
throw away his right of suffrage and fail
to do his part in settleing issues, which
have involved the permanance even of
our government itself? We think we
may confidently answer, none who can
by any means reach the polls.
