last night bring some further details of the proceedings in the South Carolina State Convention Monday, of which a very full telegraphic summan, we have all come here to preserve the honor and character of South Carolina. If anything has been decided by the late election, it is that South Carolina must be taken out of this Confederacy in as speedy a manner as possible. I trust that nothing may interfere; no outside pxas, and from every other Southern State there, was to take out South Carolina the instant you can; and now the members are panic struck, and from the North, and after stating the circumstances under which South Carolina entered the Confederacy, says: There is one thing certain, and I think it due to the country to say in advance, that South Carolina is resolved to assert her separate independence, and, as she accede of the Union by the 4th of March, regarding it as certain that South Carolina, Florida, Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi will have seceded be
From South Carolina. Charleston, Dec. 19. --The Convention assembled this morning. An encouraging prayer was offered by Rev. Mr. Curtis. There were 160 members present. The Chair submitted a letter from Hon. A. Huger, postmaster at Charleston, proffering a messenger to facilitate the delivery of the mail from the Convention. The Chair also read a letter from Hon. Jno. A. Elmore, Commissioner from Alabama, enclosing a telegram from Gov. Moore, of Ala., as follows: of the previous days to be laid on members' tables before meeting. On motion of Mr. Keitt, the time for meeting was altered to 11 o'clock. In the matter of reporters, Mr. Inglis moved that only those are to be admitted who are from South Carolina. Mr. Quatlebaum moved that each resolution be voted on separately. Mr. Logan moved to admit only two reporters. Mr. Chevis moved to allow the President discretion in that matter, and then the question will lie between him and t
A "Sensation" Dispatch. --The New York Vanity Fair thus travesties the sensational dispatches daily transmitted from the National Capital to the Metropolitan press: "Washington, Dec.-- "Unless something happens immediately, it will be some time before anything occurs. The tone of the South is not very favorable to abolitionism, and if South Carolina successfully secedes, nothing can prevent her going out of the Union. Trouble in the Cabinet was reported last night, but unless supported by facts the rumor can have little foundation.--The excitement here in political circles is not so great as it was before it began to subside, but is still greater than before it reached its present height."
en he ordered 1,500 men into Pennsylvania to execute the excise laws and put down the "Whiskey Rebellion." He did not believe any State could declare itself out of the Union. The government has the power to carry the mails and hold Courts in South Carolina by force, and if Carolina resisted the collection of the revenue it was treason. If Carolina proclaimed herself independent and made treaties and collected an army and navy, the United States might rightfully conquer and subjugate her. (Hiss He declared Lincoln's election no cause for disunion, and concluded by quoting, "The Federal Union, it must and shall be preserved."--He would give his blood to save it. Mr. Lane said the Northern Democrats would not march to subjugate South Carolina under the bloody banner of the Senator from Tennessee. When he rallied his troops to overawe a sovereign State standing up for her rights, he would meet Northern Democrats in arms. [Applause.] He served notice on the Republicans that they w
Georgia Legislature. Milledonville, Dec. 19. --A meeting of members of the Legislature favoring co-operation, and urging a Convention of such Southern States as desire co-operation, has issued an address signed by fifty-two members, to South Carolina, Alabama, Mississippi and Florida. The address concludes thus: "Our people must be united. Our common interests must be preserved. Our common movement must be successful. Common dangers must be avoided. Our equality — our honor shall be preserved. All these can devise a co-operation. Not for our enemies, but for ourselves, our safety, our children, our peace, our necessities, we beseech you so to order your action as that consultation and co-operation shall not be defeated, but secured. "Nearly all our sister Southern States are even at this writing, moving to this end. We believe all — most certainly a very large majority — will unite in such a Convention. Incalculable embarrassments and dangers can thereby be <
the usual rendezvous of my Congressional and other advisers, nobody was to be found.--In vain I hunted. The hotels, and even the streets, seemed deserted. It was 10 o'clock before I could find any one whose information was reliable, and then only ascertained that the South Carolina Convention had organized and the small-pox broken out as an epidemic in Columbia. The night was one of anxiety and gloom, in spite of the conciliatory resolutions passed in the House in the morning. A South Carolina member thinks it not improbable that the Commissioners sent to his State from other Southern States may succeed in inducing her to postpone secession until early in January. Hon. Mr. Lamar telegraphs from Mississippi that separate State secession is certain. The same comes from a prominent citizen of Alabama. Wade's speech yesterday was listened to by an immense audience. He was violent as usual in regard to slavery, but took care to guard his position by saying that he spoke only
