and hccatisc it will, in all human probability, be
ineffectual, and will injure none but those who
resort to it. Under this belief, I shall "be sorry
to see South Carolina, or any Southern State, re
sort to it. I would prefer a Southern Conven
tion to Nullification.
Iam sorry, Gentlemen, that I cannot in this
letter, give greater development to my views. If
they meet your concurrence, will you endeavor
to have a resolution for the call of a Convention,
passed at the next session of your LegisHXure?
I am, gentlemen, with great respect,

(JIt will be seen, by reference to another
column of this paper, that the Presidential Elec
toral Tickets for this State, are completed any
number of either oi them can be procured on ap

(jpThe last Raleigh Constitutionalist contains
the Address of the Jackson and Van Bureu Cen
tral Committee we will endeavor to give it a
place in our next paper. We infer from the re
marks of the Star and Register, that no Address
will be issued cither by the Jackson and Barbour
or Clay and Sergeant Central Committees.
Since the above was in type, we have receiv
ed Mr. Van Buren's reply to the Committee of
the Shocco meeting. As our readers probably
would prefer seeing the reply first, and being un
able to insert both in one paper, we will publish
Mr. Van Buren's letter in our next, and follow
it with the Address of the Central Committee.
QAnti-nullification meetings have recently
been held in several of the western counties in
this State. At a very large meeting of the citi
zens of Burke county, convened at the Court
House in Morganlon, on the 25th ult. the lion.
Samuel P. Carson, member of Congress from
that district, avowed himself in favor of the doc
trine of nullification, and the subject was discus
sed by several gentlemen the meeting was ad
journed until the next day, when an address and
resolutions disapproving the doctrine were una
The Cholera. This terrific disease has so far
subsided, that but little notice is now taken of it
in the newspapers.
The Petersburg Times of last Tuesday says:
If any decided cases of Cholera have occurred
Mnce Wednesday hist, they do not exceed 4 or 5,
or of deaths 2. The preceding Tuesday the
Times stated that the whole number of cases of
Cholera in that town from the commencement
on the 11th Sept. was 35, and that there had
been no new case from Friday to Monday.
Late from Europe. By the packet ship New
York, the editors of the Journal of Commerce
have received Liverpool dates to the 17th Sept.
A correspondendent stales that a very extensive
business has been done in the Cotton market,
and that prices have materially improved; the
sales for the week ending the 7th, were 25,S50
bales, at an advance of 1-Sd. and for the week
ending the 14ih, 34,S50 bales at a further ad
vance of -id. the latter week's business is larger
than any previous one since the year 1825. On
the 15th, American Uplands were quoted at 6 a
7 5-Sd. About 12,000 bales of American and
2,000 of other kinds have been taken on specu
lation, influenced chiefly it is believed by the
probability of the Cholera spreading through the
Cotton districts of the United States, and retard
ing operations in the new crop. No political
news of importance.
Tennessee. After thirty unsuccessful ballot
ings, the Legislature of Tennessee has postponed
until the next session, the choice of a Senator in
Congress. On the first ballot, the vote stood:
for Foster 23, Grundy 22, Eaton 15 on the last
ballot: for Foster 22, Grundy 20, Eaton IS.
The Elections. Unofficial returns have been
received from all the counties in Pennsylvania,
which give assurance that Wolf, the Jackson can
didate for Governor, is re-elected by a majority
of 3 or 4000 votes, and that 16 of the 28 mem
bers of Congress elect, are Jacksonians. "At the
last election Gov. Wolf received a majority of
about 26, 000 .vofes, whereas Gen. Jackson beat
Mr. Adams 50,000 votes we may confidently
infer from this, that Pennsylvania may now be
set down as certain for Jackson.
Returns from 43 counties in Ohio give Lucas,
the Jackson candidate for Governor, a majority
of 5 or 6000 votes and 9 Jackson to 3 Opposi
tion members of Congress. Gov. M'Arthur,
who declined a re-election, in the hope of ob
taining a seat in Congress, was defeated by the
Jackson candidate bv a mamrit.; nf
It is supposed that Lucas's majority in the whole
State will be from 8 to 10,000. Ohio may thus
an. huuu' as certain, iov Jackson.

South Carolina. Tho late election
i. i? .i .
uus lesuueu m me complete success of
the iNullihers. In the city of Charleston,
their ticket for one Senator and sixteen
Representatives was elected by a majori
ty of 155 votes. In other parts of the
State, as far as heard from, fourteen
State Rights and six Union Senators
have been chosen, and fifty -five State
Rights and sixteen Union Representa
tives. Of tho members of the last Sen
ate whose terms have not expired, four
teen are of the State Rights and five of
the union party.
The question being thus settled, that
thcJNuIlihersw.il have a majority of more
than two-thirds, Gov. Hamilton has al
ready called an extra session of the Le
islaturc, to meet at Columbia on Mon
day next, (22d inst.) "to deliberate on
such matters of high public concernment
as shall be then and there presented for
their mature consideration." There is
now no hope that South Carolina will re
frain from this dreaded step; no hope that
a collision between the General Govern
ment and the State Government of South
Carolina will be avoided. The Nullifi
crs now have the power in their own
hands, and cannot if the would, and would
not if they could, abandon the stand they
have taken. Our only hope is, that by
the forbearance of the General Govern
ment, when the State shall have bid de
fiance to the laws of the country, no pre
text may be afforded to the other Sou
thern States to take her part. Whilst
any violent proccedure against that State
might enlist the sympathies of the South
ern people in her favor, a contrary course
of calm, temperate, but decided mea
sures, will be certain to meet the appro
bation of this portion of the country.
We shall soon be in possession of the
modus operandi of Nullification, and
shall therefore hazard no conjectures on
the subject. Fay. Obs.
OCT-The Charleston (S. C.) Evening
Post says: Wo regret to learn that a
rencontre took place during the election
at Cheraw, between Dr. Ellcrbe and Dr.
McQueen, and. that the former gentleman
is since dead of the wound received on
many respectable citizens from different
parts of the State, was embraced by the
Republican party to form a Jackson and
Barbour Ticket for the ensuing election.
Pensions. James L. Edwards, Esq.
of the Pension Office, gives notice that
the number of applications under the re
cent act of Congress, already exceeding
12,000, together with the state of the
health of the city for some time past, has
prevented the examination and decision
of these claims, with as much expedition
as is desired. He promises that all ca
ses shall be investigated in the order of
their reception, and as rapidly as possi
ble; and that each applicant shall be ad
vised of the result.
Indian Treaty. We learn from the
Globe, that Gen. Scott and Gov. Rey
nolds have concluded a treaty, at Rock
Island, with the Winnebagoes, which se
cures the removal of the tribe west of the
Mississippi, and gives us a very valuable
tract of country now occupied by the In
dians. The Cholera had disappeared at
Rock Island. The Commissioners in-
tenueti forthwith "to commence
lions with the Sacs and Foxes.
Gcorgia. Messrs. Wayne, Wilde,
Gilmer, Clayton, Foster, Gamble, Jones
and Schley, are certainly elected to Con

H.Crawford was beaten by Judge Moore,
(who is in favor of nullification,) in
tho election for members of the State
Convention, which is called to take into
consideration Federal oppression, and to
designate ''the mode and measure of re
dress." Mr. Crawford had been for some
time before the people as a candidate, but
against the wishes of his old friends who
had endeavored to induce him to with
draw his name. Having failed, they no
minated, on the morning of the election,
Judge Moore, a consistent and sterling
republican of the Troup party. The vote
stood for Moore 419, for Crawford 276.
Mississippi. A Convention of the
people of this State, by delegates recent
ly elected, assembled on the 10th ult. for
the purpose of revising the State Consti

ceed six years; to hold the Legislature
once in two years; and to abolish proper

that the Council meets to discuss the
present state of affairs in winch the Che

for their own happiness and welfare, that
their decision upon this interesting sub
ject will comport with the liberal and be
nevolent proposition made them by the
President in April: notwithstanding thev

refused to accept it, in their equivocating
answer of August last. The time, how
ever, is fast approaching when, if they do
not decide for themselves, the question
will be decided for them.
