The Souih ru butaa, irom the rouuuenceuieal of the government, bare striven to keep it within the orbit prescribed by the con etiutfc? The enjx'rinient lias failed. .The whole consti tutioa, bv tbe ctnstrucqoBB of the Northern people, has been swallowed up by a few worda it) !t? preamble. lu their recki<*e lu*t for power, they seem unable to nun prebend that seeming paradox, that the more powor U given to the gnueral povenment the w.wker it becomes, its etieiiglh consists ill Its generality and limitation*. To l ateod Ihe s.'iipe of its power over sectional or local in tercets, is to raise up against it opposition and resistance, in nil Herb matters the general government must neces sarily be a despotism, because all Bectiuual or local internets must ever be represented by a mlnorit) m the council* of the general governmoni? bavins no power to protect itself against the rule of the majority- Iht majority, constituted from Umsu who do not repr< seut these sectional or local interests, will control nud govern lliem. A free people cannot sub init to such in government. And the more it enlarges the sphere of its power, the gicater must be the dissa tiAiactirn it must produce, and the weaker it must be come. On the contrary, the more it abstains from usurped (lowers, and the more faithfully it adheres to the limitations of (he constitution, the stronger it is made. The Northern people have had neither tlie wis dom nor the faith to perceive, that to observe the llmi tat.un of the constitution was the only way to its perpe tuity . Under such a government there muat of course, be many and endless ''irrepressible conflicts," between the two great sections of the Union. Hie some faithless ness which has abolished ine constitution of the United Slates, will not fail to carry out the sectional purposes for which it has been abolished. Thore must be oou'iict; and tbe weaker section of the Union can only tiud peace tuid liberty, in an independence of the North The repeated efforts male by South Carolina, in a wise conservatism, to arreet the progress of the general government in it- fatal progress to consolidation, have been unsupported and denounced as faithless to the obligations of the constitu tion by the very men and States who were destroying it by their usurpations. It Is now loo lalo to relurm or restore the government ol the United States. All con ildenre in the North is lost in the South. The faithlem ncee of lialf a century has opened a gulf of separation be tw con them which no promises or engagements can till. It rannot ho believed that our ancestors would have nut ntcd to any union whatever with the people of the North If tbe fcelingE and opinions now existing amongst them had cxieted when the constitution was framed. There was then no tariff? no uegro fanaticism It w.ts tbe dele gates from New England who proposicd in the Convention which framed the constitution, to the dele gates from South Otrolina and Georgia, that if they would agree to give Cbngr-Hi the Bower of regulating commerce by a majority, that tliey would supjs rt tbe extension of iho African slave trade for twenty years African slavery existed in all the States but one. Tbe idea, that they would bo made to foy that tribute to their Northern confederate*, which the;, had refused to pay to Great Britain; or that the institution of African slavery would ho nuelc the grand I'ttsiHol a sectional organization of the Norlli to rule the South, never crossed their imaginations. Iho Union of the i onstitution was a union 01 siavehotding States. It rifts on slavery, h> prescribing a representation in ( Vingrese, for three-Qftlis of our slaves. There in uoth ing in the proceedings of tho convent .on which framed tlie constitution to show that the Southern States would tiave formed any other Union; mid still less that tie y would havefortiied a Union with muro powerful qyn slavelioliliuc Stales, having minority ill bolli branches of the Legislature of the government. They w, re guilty of no such foUy.

MMlLAlUTlOh Ot lNltKWDKNCK O* MOUTH CAROl.I m, im?ke isetmrmmm,mkmkek, 24,1MI Thi Male of .South Carolina having determufed to re sump her .separate and equal place among nation*, deems it due to heraelf, to the remaining Culled Males of Aiuer |. a, and to the nations of the world, that she should de clare the causes which ha\ e led to this act. In the year 1766, that portion of the British Kuipirc ejobracing Cre-at Britain, undertook to make lawa for the government of that portiou composed of the thirteen American (>>1001111. A struggle for the right of self gov ernment ensued, which resulted on the 4th of July, 1776, in a Declaration by the Colonies, ?? thai I hoy are, and of right ought to be free and independent Mates, and that as free rind independent States, they have full power to levy war, conclude peace, roulrart alliances, establish com merce, uiul to ao all other acts and things which iodepen dent States may of right do." They further M.'emnly declared thai whenever any '?form of government becomes destructive of the ends for which it wax established, it is the right of the people to niter or abnlirb it, and to institute a new government." Deeming the government of Great Britain to have become destructive of these ends, they declared that the colonies "are absolved from all allegiance to the British crown, and that all poliMcnl connection between them and the State* of Ureal Britain is, aud ought to be, totally tlis solved." In pursuance of thi* Declaration of Independence, each of the thirteen States proceeded to exercis* its separate sovereignty; adopted for itself a constitution and ap pointed "Uiccr* for the administration of go .-ernment in all it- departments?legislative, executive and judicial. Kor purpose of defence, they united their arms and th?-lr counsels; and, in 1778, they entered into a league known a* the articles of confederation, whereby they agreed to entrust the administration oi tie ir external relations to a common agent, known as the Oongrexs of the United States, expreerly declaring, in the ilist article, "that each Mate retains it* sovereignty, ireedoin and independciu e, and every power, Jurisdiction and right which is not, by this confederation, expressly delegated to the United States in Congress assembled. Under tie OOQfadarsUca the war <>t the Revolution was curried on. and <>n tho 3d of September, 1783, the contest ended, uuil a d' tinitive treaty was signed by Ureal Bri tain. In which she acknowledged the independence of the colonies in the follow >ng terms:?

It will be remembered that tbe violation of our conetitutional rirhte, which hue caused such universal dis-ath-factiou in th- South, m l ot of recent date. Ten years since this Union wan lorki-d from cmtre to clrcuinfereuce by tbe v cry same outrages of which we now, ? nly uow --aggiaiated'' by lb'- recent elect.on. Nothing hut her devotion to the I'nion our fathers made induced the South then to yield to a compromise, in which Mr. t lay rightly said, we had yielded everything hut oar honor. We bad then in ItUsistdiipi a warm content, which Anally ended In reluctant acquiescence in tbeoona I measures. The North pledged unow her faith te > add to ua our cooatitu iooal rights in relation to (lave 1 rbptrty. They u.-e now, nod h*\ e be* n e\ t r since that . 11, di mad U> us, until her broken forth and imp,ideal threats had become almost Iwullerable before the late cli-ctk.n. Ibcre were three candidates presented to the North by .Soutliirn urcn, all of win an represented thu last i e><rre of conservatism and concession which their re spective pnrtien wm- willing to yield, to uppease the fa uattcism of the North. Some of them were scarcely doomed boor.d, In the South, ou the slavery i question, and none of thorn suited our ultra men. And yet the North relectcd them ak, and the'r united voter, both before and bines their overwhelming triumph in this election, has ho ii m re defiant and more intolerant than ever before. "1 hey have demanded, and now demand, equality between the white and negro race, un ter our constitution; equali ty in representation, equality in tbe right of suffiage, equality in the honors aim < mulutuents oi oilier, equality in the social circle, equality In the rights of matrimony. '1 he cry hub been, and now is --that slavery must cease, < r American liberty must perish," that "thesuccess of black republicanism is the triumph of anti-slavery," a involution in the tcudei cioe of tbe government that most Ik- carried out. To-day our government stands totally revolutioni*e*i, in its nisla features, and our constitutioa hrokun and overturned. Ihe new administration, whioh 1.. cfl'cctcd this revolution, only await., the 4th ol March for the inauguration of the new government, the naw principles, aud the new imlicv, upon the success of which they have procla.ined freedom to the slave, but eternal degradation for you and for us. No revolution was evar uiorc complete, though bloodlew, if you will tamely sub mit to tbe instruction of that constitution and thai I bion our fathers made. Our fathers made this a gs verniiient ter the white man, reji-cting the negro as aa igii. rant, inferior, barbarian race, incapable of self-go tcniinent. and not, therefore, eutitled to be associated w illi the white man on terms of civil, political or sooial equality. Tliis new administration comes into power ua dcr the t<4emii pledge to overturn and strike down thia grout feature of our Uniou, without which it would never have been formc-d, and to substitute in itsstead their naw theory of the universal equality of the black and white laces, our fstlierb t cured to us, by our constitutional I'nion, now boing overturned by this black republican oile, protection to life, hlierty and property, all over tha rui, ii asd wherever Its flpg whs unfurled, whether aa land or tea. Under this wrclchcd. lawless spirit and policy, now usurping the control of that government, citizens or tlio South hate been deprived of their property, and foe al 1< nipt iug to seek the redress promised by the compromise laws,hare lost their liberty and iheir lives, fcquality of rights becurcd to white men, in equal sovereign States, is .?mong tbe most prominent features of the constitution Dder which we have so long lived. This equality haa been denied us in the South for years in the common Territories, w hile the North has virtually distributed them as boun ties to abolit iai fsusticb and foreigners, for their brigaad rcrvice iu aiding in our exclusion. Our constitution, la i rmistakcable Isnguag.-, guarantees the return of our fugitive slaves. Congress ha* recognized her duty la this rocport by enacting proper latfs for the enforcement of tins right. And yet thes<< law? have been continually nullified, and the solemn pledge of the compromise at i860, bywhkh the North came under renewed ohliga i ens to enforce them, has been faithlessly d is regarded, r<ud the gov. riam-t.t and its oiilcers set at da Dance. Who now expect! these rebels agalnat tiie laws )wwc*l by th"lr own consent and pnk-uro mcnt?rebels against jastict- and common honesty?to'be come pious patriots by the acquisition of power? Who iow expects Mr. Lincoln to become conservative, when tbe only nmrt of hl? hucce** and tbe only foandotion of lus authority is the will and command of that robber ? lan whore mere instrument he h, who hare achieved th>s revcpition in our government by treading under tbelr unhallowed feet our constitution and Iswh and the I uion >4 our fathers, and by openly defying high lira' by w ill'ul and corrupt perjury. And. a'.iovo all, who is It * descended n the South, born or dcccosded of Kev uluttonarr sir who so lev* euch con.piny aa that he will long hesitate before he can obtain tin ennaont of a virtuous and patri otlv In iiit and a p, aepamte from them for {???

This m-vr union with Lincoln biark republican.* and free negroes, without sis t ry, or elsvary under our old c-natltutiocal bond of union, without Lincoln black republicans, or free ncgrm-s eitlar. to rooisot us.
