Though she had, for some years, been a Democratic State--casting her Presidential vote for Buchanan and Breckinridge, in 1856, by some seven thousand majority Burchanan 74,642; Fillmore 67,416; Fremont 314.--the cloven foot of treason had no sooner been exhibited, by the disruption of the Democratic party at Charleston, than her people gave unmistakable notice that they would acquiesce in no such purpose.

He wrote, August 6, 1860, to Dr. Brown-Sequard:— The speech in the Senate will be evidence to you of the completeness of my convalescence. Besides the delivery, which occupied between four and five hours, there was much labor of preparation.
