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 the nomination. 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 i' .1 1 -I ..-.I- ft 'X
