From the Raleigh Constitutionalist.
TO THE JACKSON CENTRAL COMMITTEE.
You have already learnt the re
sult ofthe proceedings ofthe Baltimore Con
vention. As it may however, be a matter of
some interest to you, as well as to our friends
in other parts ofthe State, to have a more par
ticular detail of the transactions, and principles
upon which the Convention acted, and the del
egation from each State being left to make such
explanation as they might deem advisable I
avail myself of the first leisure moment, since
my return home, to make this' communication.
In doingso, I am not to be understood as speak
ing the sentiments of others, tho I shall eif
deavor to speak of things as they are, in the
language of truth and sincerity, under the hope
of being able to satisfy you of the correctness
of my views, and of preventing as far as prac
ticable a division among the friends ofthe ad
ministration in this State.
There were in attendance about 3G0 delegates;
each State being represented, with the excep
tion of Missouri; and the sentiments of that
State communicated from a source entitled to
the highest respect. The Convention being
organized, it was ascertained that some of the
States were much more fully represented than
others some having a larger, and some smal
ler number, than their electoral vote. It was
necessary therefore to devise some plan, which
might retlect correctly the relative weight of
each State. A vote percapita or by number
and a majority to govern, though the true de
mocratic principle, was not considered as like
ly toadvance the wishes, or to express the will
of the whole of the States, agreeably to their
vote in the electoral college, which had been
the great object in convoking the Convention.
Hence it was decided, that each State without
regard to the number of their delegates, should
give its electoral vote leaving it with the respec
tive delegations to determine upon the general
or district principle of voting, as they might be
divided or united in opinion. This rule being
so manifestly fair and just, one so likely to ac
commodate the wishes of all, met with no op
position. I lie question of what States shoufu
be allowed to vote, in making a nomination,
threatened a more serious disturbance to the
harmony of our proceedings. To have said to
the delegates from those States who had not
voted for general Jackson at the last election,
and who, in all probability might not do so at
the next, though warmed and animated with
the same wishes and sentiments, and feeling a
community of hopes and fears with ourselves
equally desirous of success to the same great
object, that their voice could not be heard in
the selection of a Jackson candidate for the
Vice Presidency, would have been as unjust as
impolitic. It was well known that at the last
election, the electoral vote of Maine, and New
Hampshire too, with the whole; of the N. Eng
land states, with the exception of a single vote,
had been given against general Jackson. It
was now admitted, that these five states were
decidedly for him, and in the others there were
strong minorities from whom reasonable hopes
of success were entertained. To obviate this
difficulty, and to guard against the objection of
suffering those non-effective States to divide
the question, it was resolvedj that no person
should receive the nomination; without having
in his favor at least, two thirds of the whole
electoral vote. Thus requiring a greater excess,
beyond a majority, to concur in the nomination,
than the votes of the five anti-Jackson States.
Having thus settled in a way perfectly fair and
satisfactory, the rule of voting and the number
necessary to a choice the convention proceeded
to a ballot. The result was 208 for Martin
Van Ruren 49 for P. P. Barbour 2 for II.
M. Johnson giving Mr. Van Buren more than
two thirds on the first ballot, and of course the
nomination as Vice President.
The delegation from Virginia, consisting of
upwards of 00 members, of high character, from
every part of the State (who had voted for Mr.
Barbour) then oilered a resolution approving of
the nomination and pledging themselves to its
support. The same course was pursued by the
Kentucky delegates (who voted for Col. John
son) and who said their friend would unite with
them in favor ofthe nomination. I have since
learnt that Col. Johnson approves ofthe course
taken by his friends and will himself sustain
I was perfectly disposed in convention, as I
had been before, to unite with our southern
brethren upon some, candidate agreeing with
us in all our opinions on measures of national
policy. I thought then, as I think now, that
the friends of the administration in the Soutn,
should have submitted their claims and prefer
ances fairly to the umpirage ofthe great body
of their party, and abide the result. I was well
satisfied, that a southern candidate uniting only
the six plantation states (as they are termed)
could not possibly succeed. I was as well satis
fied that a candidate from the INorth East or
North West, without a union of interest, would
prove equally unsuccessful. J I honestly m
deavored to inform myself, by a free inter-
change of opinion win. "
different sections, who was most likely to eflect
this union go all important to our success. I be
came convinced that in the north western States
Mr. Van Buren wa? the second, if not their
first choice, and that after CoL Johnson, he
would most certainly be taken up, and was gi
ven distinctly to understand, that the nomina
tion of any man as rigid as Mr. Barbour was
known to be, in his views of national politics
woufd jeopardize the chance of General Jack
son. lTn..the. slates of Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana
and Illinois. I Was still disposed however not
to yield, without an effort in favor of a southern
man. F or although it has been charged upori
the convention, that it was gotten up and car
ried on with a view to the nomination of Mr.
Van Buren, I well know as regards the delegates
selected from this State, the charge was with
out foundation, and I am equally well satisfied
that it is, as regards others. The feeling in
favor of Mr. Van Buren originated in a strong
sense of public indignation, at his rejection a
minister by the U. States Senate. Thus satis
fied under existing circumstances that Mr. V;
B. would in the end command the nomina
tion, I was disposed, as a southern man.
strongly imbued with southern feelings as I
trust others will do, cautiously to examine tv. .,
political aspect of things to consider well tho
grounds we should occupy, before suffering
our feelings and the management of our poli
tical opponents, to lead us into mazed from
which we might find it difficult hereafter to
extricate ourselves. I enquired of mvself if
we of the south should insist on a candidate
opposed to the tariff, the great point in contro
versy, whether its supporters would not also
insist upon one favorable to itt This being
the test to decide the question, we of course
being in the minority, must have failed. W
hadj the President, with sentiments, if not en
tirely in accordance with our own, favorable at
least to a liberal adjustment ol the measure. I
found it a fact too, beyond question, that whilst
the ultra opponents of the tariff in the south
were hostile to Mr. Van Buren, its most vio
lent supporters' to the north were equally so.
I thought then, as I think now, if the people of
the .south were prepared to submit to no terms
in the adjustment of this distracting question,
short of a toTrl abandonment ofthe principle of
protection, then the crisis had arrived, when
we should take our stand, and in all things pre
sent an unbroken front. But if they were not
prepared to raise this staudard of opposition,
even to the hazard of revolution and I did no!
believe they were then it becomes our dut
to act in a spirit of mutual forbearance and com
promise, to practice this spirit in yielding to
the wishes of a large majority of the great re
publican family, in this spirit, and with thesv
feelings, although I had voted for Judge Bar
bour, 1 united without hesitation in the unani
mous recommendation of Mr. Van Buren.
Having taken this course, I maybe allowed,
to express some additional considerations whic?i
influenced me in adopting it. In the first place.
I found Mr.' Van Buren the itronger candidate
wiih the. Jackson States ; and more likely to
unite a majority of the electoral votes, than Mi.
Barbour. Giving to Mr. B. the votes of Vir-,
ginia, N. Carolina, S. Carolina, Georgia, Ala
bama and Mississippi, it would make but an
aggregate of 71 votes. Whereas Mr. V. B.
with equal certaintj- would receive the vote of
Maine, New Hampshire, New York, Tennes
see, Indiana, Illinois, with three votes in Marv
land making an aggregate of 90 votes so
that between the two Mr. V. B. must havc-bcei
the strongest, and in every reasonable proba
bility one of the two highest, to be presented
to the Senate for their choice. With tho nom
ination, I ficlieved, in addition to the above he
would likely receive the vote of New Jersey,
Kentucky, Ohio, Missouri and Georgia, in all
149 a majority ofthe whole electoral vote tr
say nothing of his chance in Virginia, N. Caro
lina, Alabama and Mississippi. Our persever
ing therefore, for Mr. Barbour, could have led
to no practical good but much mischief".
There was no prospect either of his election bv '
the people, or of his receiving a vote large
enough to go before the Senate as one ofthe two
highest. In tile second place I was led to en
quire, whether theobjections urgedagainstMr.
Van Buren, were of a character to forbid the
south voting for him under any circumstances
These were his views upon the subject of Inter
nal Improvements and his rote for the tariff of
1828 throwing out of view the partizan objec tions
of particulat individuals, founded as I con
sidered in personal prejudice. Upon tho Is:
question, Is?; with confidence, that Lurh iroiu
his speeches and votes, whilst in theSn ate, he -was
always regarded as opposed to thrpoue:
of Inter'l Improv't by the Gen. Gov't. That
upon the bill for procuring surveys, plans, and
estimates, upon the subject of roads end ca1
nals, and which has been the foundation ofth.
various abuses since practised by Congress, in
their appropriations upon objects natiofud only
in name, Mr. Van Buren voted in tho nega
tivethe vote being 25 yeas, 21 nay?. In re
gard to the tariff of 1S28. I found the fact to
be, he had voted for it, but that he was mTmorc
responsible for its passage, than any otherpcr
son who had supported it. That in regard to
the charge of his having been the caue of inser
ting the duty upon Wool and Lead, withou:
winch it is said the bill couldnot have passed
the Senate the fact turns out to be, that the
duty upon wool was carried in the House of
Representatives by a vote of lOOycas 0Snays
the whole south vot-cd for zV -in order no
doubt to render it odious) the Eastern members
against it. In the penate, a motion to increasi;
the advalorcm duty upon wool from 50 to 71)
per cent, the vote was 16 yeas, 31 tidis the
Senators from the south voting in the affirma
tire. As regards the duly upon Lead, tht?
amendment was ofieredby Mr.'Karnc a Senator!
from Illinois (and who is now voting witlii
the south for every proposed modification 6f
the tarifF) without concert or understanding as
l am authorised by that gentleman to say, of
any kind or tor any purpose, with Mr. Van
Buren, and carried by a rote of 29 yeas 17
