SAINT VARY’S REASON LEONARD TOWPf.MD. THURSDAY MURMMi. FEB. 14. 1861 We pablih. in another column, a letter from Dr. Wiring iu reply to an edi torial notice in the Beacon of the 3Kt ul timo on the aahjt ct of the llsgner preaentalion. Mr. Higtirr, it will also be ■cen, has honored us with a letter on the same sabject These communication* were not received, owing we presume to the ir regularity of the mail, until after we had put our papertopreaß, and we were consequently compelled to post|ou their publication until the present week.

The supper was a very elegant and substantial one. and the delicacies of the season, such as wild -dnck-Ao.v were the best style and greatest .abandonee. We re gret to be compelled to announce the ab ‘ aencc of the gallant and popular Captain Dr. h.

It is undoubtedly true, that “a mind conscious of its own fairness ; is alow to indulge ir gratuitous and otfvn- i •ive imputations tf the motives of other*;” but, mindful of the tenor of your late edi torial, and that this was not the arsl '•ces sion on which your psper indulg'd in re marks doing this gentleman injustice, may ; wo not seek a proper xufijrrt for th** apoiica tion f tliic principle, ir rhe question nked by one of old—“I pray thee, of whom ’ speaker!) the prophet this '! of himsd/, or uf some other man?” Allow me to take leave of this discus- t j sion by requesting that you publish the en- ; dosed statement in y'ur next issue. Very Respectfully. Your’s, J. WAKING, j Southampton. ) Feb. 2nd. 1801. j To the Editors of the St. Mary’s Beacon: j Gentlemen :—Through the kindness af u i friend, my attention Las just been directed i to an article in your paper of the 17th in- i aiaut, commenting upon my course in the j Conference at the Law Buildings in Haiti- | more, upon a revolution condemning coer- i cion on the part of the General Govern- i ment towards seceded Slates. Since my action in the matter hss been considered of sufficient importance tc call for a notice at your hands, I think it proper to acquaint you with the facts of the case, which arc strangely misstated iu the article I refer to. On behalf of the minority of the Com mittee on Resolutions. 1 reported one which was afterwards adopted by the unanimous rote of the Conference. It setmed to be | the general opini <u af the Committee that i no proposition* should be reported, except j those of a practical character, beat ing upon j the question of a State Conveu-1 tion. They accordingly abstained from i reporting a resolution upon the subject of j coercion. After the unanimous adoption : of the Report by the Conference, Dr. Rob- j in son introduced the Resolution which you print at the head of your article. You next give a sketch of n y remarks, omitting altogether the intermediate proceedings. These I propose to supply, as the best cx plcxr.tien of (he course I pursued on the snuk. As soon as Dr. Robinson introduced his Resolution, objections to its consideration were made by many members, who hud ap proved of the CmiunUtee’s action, a a ex plained by Mr. Wallis, the Chairman. A long discussum ensued, and finally the Re solution was withdrawn by the mover, in' accordance with what seemed to 1 e almost the unanimous wish of the Conference, without taking a vote upon it. In these proceedings I took no part; but, after the withdrawal of the Resolution, 1 saw clear ly that the action of the Conference would be iu?.understood, and that we might be I represented as having expressed an opinion iu Favor of coercion. I mentioned this to some friends near me, ai.d expressed the opinion that there should now Us au au thentic statement to the contrary, which, being published with the other proceed ings, would borrect any such erroneous impression. I was urged to make the statement, which 1 accordingly did, in a few sentences. After the adjournment of the Conference, at the suggestion of Mr. Wallis, 1 asked leave of one of the Report ers. who was iu the room, to examine his report of my remarks, and, with his per mission. corrected it, so as to make it agree iu tjith what 1 bad said. This report, as corrected in the presence of Mr. Wallis and read to him at the time, is in these words; “Mr. Ilsguer said bo was “one of those who had been opposed to the “introduction of (fits question in the On “vcmion, but since the matter hud nor “passed into the hands of tbe press, he “thought it ought to he distinctly under “atom) that the refusal <f the Conference “to consider the proposition wss in r.o de “gree to be taken, t ill) 4 ** - by the North, oi “by our friends at the South, as indicating “that our views were the reverse of tlr.'sc “eibodied in the proposition. Th j y op “po&ed ita iutrjduetku solely btcausa it * ■ ■ ■ •••' ■ -opfks- - was ioc ngmott? to Un objects of tha 0- ■ “lei*n*:e.” j ( I extract this from the etrloied 1 which in the only one I mn now *UaiQ. ! emit*min* a report of tbe proceedings of the Co:.tcreuc;. I will ouilj remark m i rui iitimi. that a large number of gentlemen preset.l ;xpres***d th**ir gratificati -n that tbe atatement had been x an act of justice to the meiiiber? of the C**if<*renc* ; < and that the Resoluti<*n of Dr. Robinson ' met my entire approval, and under other circumstances would have sccwr-*4 uy warm support. It ia identical in purpose with one winch I recently ad vacated at a public meeting in thU county. Ab you cannot avoid acknowledging that your criticism upon my remarks was un just. it can scarcely be for me I * uoliee the rest of your article, in which yon ’ com mint upon sundry acts of coercion which you aver have been inaugurated by the General Government, As all these acts, if objectionable, were performed by Mr. Buchanan. who you aod your friends kss than a year ago inri-ted was the firm ■ friend of the South, 1 surly nm not to fce called upon to defend them. To yottr bands 1 leave his vindication. lam ob liged, however, to confess that I did not : “know.” until I saw it iu war paper, that | “by virtue of tho Federal garrison at An napolie, the representatives of the Stole could not legislate in the Capitol of the State, except under guns.” Th re it* „ garrison” t Annapolis that I Tinow of. ex c'.-pt the Midshipmen.
