is dodge. My counsel to you, fellow-citizens, is to look the danger full in the face; waste no time in delusive negotiations, with the guns of the enemy bearing upon you, all your forts in his possession, and the halter around your necks. Take, first, an independent attitude, place yourselves upon an equal footing with him, and then negotiate, if you please. Then, and not till then, can you negotiate with honor, or any hope of success. Then, honorable re-construction may come. In conclusion, allow me to say that individual hopes and wishes are of small concern at such a moment as the present. Principle is the great thing to be looked to in choosing a representative, and those who concur with me in opinion will not, I hope, permit my name to be a stumbling block in their path, but wholly disregard it, if it be necessary to do so, in the vindication of our principles and our country. With great respect, Your humble serv't, James Lyons. Laburnum, Jan. 26th, 1861. ja 29--1t
