declares that those who atutj it as Douglas
dun; Falsify History !
The aanouncemeht of Mr. Douglas at Pe-
terImrg and Norfolk t hat lie would treat those
who attempt to dissolve the I'nion on account
of the election of Lincoln as Jackson treated
the Nullilieis in ifr'sl has induced some of
the Georgia newspapers to republish the fol-
lowing letter addressed by the lion. Her.schel
V. Johnson the candidate for the Vice Presi-
dency on the Douglas ticket to a committee
of gentlemen of Augusta Georgia in the year
1851. It will be seen that Gov. Johnson
handle-; without gloves those who like Mr.
Douglas maintain that the right of secession
is merely a ripht of revolution. Can the
ticket with such a !-ead and tail mislead a
suirlcient number of the Democracy of the
South to give a single State to the Opposition ?
l e commend this letter to the supporters
of Mr. Douglas who are charging the friends
of Mr. Breckinridge as disunionists:
Mii.i.f.dc.f.vii.i.e Ga. Aug. 30 1851.
Gentlemen : I thank you for your kind and
pressing invitation to a barbecue to be given
to Col. Robert McMillen the Southern Rights
candidate for Congress in the Eighth District
on the first Tuesday in September next. But
official engagements furbid me the pleasure of
it.s acceptance. Morgan court will be in ses-
sion at that time.
My personal acquaintance with Col. Mc-
Millen. is limited but I know him by repu-
tation as a gentleman of high moral worth
brilliant talents and sound republican princi-
ples. Such men I am rilowa tu honor ana
oiuvcreiy trust the great cause whose banner
he bears by the united voice of the Southern
Rights party of his district may be triumph
The contest in which the people of Georgia;
in common with her sister slaveholding States
are engaged is one of vital importance. It
involves the destiny of the South and the
federative character of our system of govern-
ment. It is waged upon the right of a State
peaceably to secede from the Union. The
Gubernatorial candidate of the Southern
Rights part- maintains the affirmative and
the candidate of the submission party the
negative of this great question. The one
that the right necessarily results from the re-
served sovereignty of the States and the na-
ture of the confederacy and the other that it
exists only as a right of revolution. The
former insists that the general government
has no right to coerce a seceding State; and
the latter that such seceding State must de-
pend for the maintenance of its position "njion
the stout hearts and strong arms of a free
people." The one unhesitatingly and boldly
avows that if a Southern State were to secede
he would not obey the requisition by the
federal government made upon him as the ex-
ecutive of Georgia for troops to force her back
into the Union; and the other declares he

Georgetown Texas Sept. 27 I860.
Dear Major: On yesterday the Hon. E.
D. Townes of your county favored us with
his presence and as he was not expected here
and was out of his own beat his appearance
created some surmise. A good many believed
that he had come for the purpose of answering
or at least attempting to answer Col. M. 1).
Graham who was advertised to speak here.
Some supposed that in beating a hasty retreat
from Petty he had lost his way and was
wandering about the country.
The opinion though that was most believed
was that It. Petty the Elector for the 2nd
Judicial District had so completely used up
the Judge that he had fled entirely out of the
District to escape the merciless flaying that
Petty was in the habit of administering to
him whenever they met. Poor fellow! He
had not forgotten Lockhart or Webbcrville
and when ho rose to speak he looked very
suspicieusly down the road leading to Bastrop
evidently dreading lest Petty should make
his appearance. When he found he was for
once rid of Petty he seemed more confident
and emmenced rehashing from the Nashville
Patriot and Intelligencer the old cock and
bull story about a deliberate and cold-blooded
conspiracy to dissolve the Union on the part
of Yancey Rhett (and A. J. Hamilton) ; the
latter he left out. After alternately reading
and repeating these garbled extracts and
boring the crowd almost to death he sat down.
He never said a word about Bell not a
word about Douglas and barely mentioned
Rreckinridge and never mentioned Lincoln.
He made a dull speech. Petty had whipped
all the fun and anecdote out of him he did'nt
tell one. His keepers a la chinoise according
to Monsieur Hue. had evidently taken the
Rock from tbe end of his tail and have de-
termined to let him make as much noise as he
may desire. Col. Graham being prevented
by sickness from filling his appointment Mr
Geo. M. Flournoy the Attorney General elect
who was in attendance at our Court was
called upon and replied to Townes in a speech
of an hour and a half in length.
It was decidedly the best Democratic sjieech
that we have had here this year; Mr. Flour-
noy is a clear ready and bold debater aud is
more at home even when breaking lances
with an opponent than when speaking with-
out opposition. He laughed at J udge Townes'
cold-blooded conspiracy and all his raw-head
and bloody bones nursery stntf Ho made
the Judge ashamed of it. He took up the
Fusion question and showed the hypocrisy of
Pease & Co. and their folly. He discussed
Bell's record and Everett's without mercy.
He denounced the Bell men for trying to ele-
vate an Abolitionist like Everett to the Pre-
sidential chair through the Sonate. He
sketched the iilack Rerublican programme
and showed that Breckinridge and Lane were
the only candidates fighting them boldly and
with any show of success. He made an able
telling and eloquent speech. Townes replied
but the fear of Petty was still on him he
failed. Mr. Flournoy made a short rejoinder
and after an interesting discussion of four
hours the crowd dispersed. Put down this
county 150 majority for Breckinridge and
Lane. M.

From the Appendix to the Congressional
"Globe" of 1849-'50 page 1C68 we make
the following extracts:
With regard to the Constituuional power
nor points is so great that exaggerated ru-
mors of anything having the semblance of the
tragical are very apt to get into circulation
without being satisfactorily corrected for a
cansiderablo length of time. We had hoped
to find that these things were exaggerated
for the SAke of our common country for the
honor ofhuman nature and for the reputation
of our Northern brethren political and reli-
gious whose abolition doctrines have been the
direct cause of both the John Brown and the
Texas conspiracies together with all similar
disturbances. But we are compelled to con-
fess that our hopes have turned out to be en-
tirely groundless. Unquestionable evidence
has been discovered of a systematically organ-
ized conspiracy under the direction of white
men extending its ramifications into all the
slave-holding parts of the State the object of
which wa a simultaneous and general insur-
rection of the blacks accompanied by fire
rape and assassination. The same evidences
are fsund in all parts of the State : stychnine
in the hand of the negroes for the purpose of
poisoning food wells and springs : mins pistols
and other arms in individual hands and col-
lected in secret arsenals for perfecting the
work begun by fire and poison. Tlie men.
the old women and the children were all to
be killed and the young women to be devoted
to a far more horrible fat".
And this is the fruit of abolitionism of
anti-slavery ism of thu teaching of the anti-
slavery press and pulpit and rostrum ! Can
any man cntnlidlv mill nillseieiltloUstV lten it. i
There is no use in attempting to avoid the
logical responsibility of the Black Republicans
and Abolitionists for these results. Many of
their more candid leaders in Congress and
out of it avow their sympathy with such
things; but their responsibility for them is
obvious enough without such avowals. It
would at this moment shock the world to
know precisely the number of Northern pi o-
ple who silently favor in sympathy and at tlie
ballot-box the destruction of the South bj
insurrection. The election of a Helperite
speaker ot tue last congress is proot ot this
view. Many of our Northern fellow-citizens
have held and taught abolition doctrines
without ever dreaming that such doctrines
would lead to such results. But now there
is no excuse. Before the John Brown and
Texas conspiracies we can understand that a
man may have beeu a Black Republican or an
abolitionist simply because he was a dupe:
but now. how a man can teach abolition doc-
trines or support the Black Republican party
and not be a villain our casuistry does not
enable us to determine. Such a man is logi-
cally an incendiary and murderer whatever
he may be in purpose. Many a poor negro
with a good master and home with gentle
women who felt interested iu his welfare and
that of his family and without the possibility
of being placed in a better position in any
part of the world will have been tempted to
the gallows by the serpent of abolitionism ;
but the curse of God and man. for his des-
truction will fall upon the tempter who
ruined him.
Southern slavery as a rule is the mildest
and most benevolent system of labor in the
world and the slaves without abolition
temptation are the most contented and happy
laborers. But granting it the character at-
tributed to it bj the abolitionists it is even
then in comparison with abolitionism most
saintly and holy. There is not an evil to
character nnd home to society or country
attributed to slavery by an ignorant or lying
press that abolitionism does not produce an
hundred fold. It is the life of modern poli-
tics the falsehood of modern philosophy the
apostacy of modern Christianity and tho curse
of modern civilization. If ever men deserved

Dear Major: I have just returned from
a scout with Major Yan Dora U. S. A. in
pursuit of a party of Indians that killed Mr.
Boalt en the head of Brady's reek. where
himself and five young men overtook six In-
dians with fourteen head of loose horses ; the
fight lasted one hour and from the appear-
ance of the ground there can be no doubt but
that the fight was a desperate one. Three of
tbe attacking party were badly wounded one
killed Mr. Coots had his horse shot dead on
the ground and two more wounded. One
Indian was seen to fall from his horse sup-
posed to be mortally wounded and one had
his arm broken. The Indians left the ground

that the only doubt I have of tho existence of i badly crippled that pursuit was impossible

Public Meeting;.
At a meeting of fhe delegates composing
the 14th Judicial District held at Gay'.-.
Ranch on the Aransas Sept. 22 1H60 ;
On motion Col. Joseph Doughty was called
to the chair and Captain John Donelson ap-
pointed secretary.
The object of the meeting heirs eloquently
explained by Martin S. Kinney Esq. of Go-
liad the substance of which was a deprecation
of the lato fraudulent vote polled at a Mexi-
can ranche in Nueces county called San
Diego the following gentlemen viz.: W ('.
Yan Muter of Live Oak. C 0L Jones of Bee
and A. Clark of Nueces were appointed by
the Chair as a committee to draft resolutions
expressive of the sentiments of those assem-
bled ami the counties they represented.
After a recess of one hour tbe ensuing re-
solutions were presented to the convention
and unanimously adopted :
Whereas a number of Mexican votes were
cast in the county of Nueces at the last Au-
gust election thereby controlling the eiec-
tion of the Judge in this judicial district
therefore be it
Retired 1st That we are satisfied that the
election of Jos. ) 'Connor to the Judgeship
of the 14th Judicial District was secured by
frauduleut votes and for a fraudulent pur-
pose Therefore a decent respect for tbe legal
voters of said district would require Wm. O'-
CaaaxaT to resign his office of Judge if he
should receive a certificate of election and
we the delegates here assembled do request
him to do so.
Resolced 2. That the Convention on the
part of the di.-trict represented do most ear-
nestly deprecate the fraudulent means used
to secure the election of said O'Connor and
being so fraudulent and corrupt is void and
we would recommend to the several counties
comprising the 14th judicial district pending
the contest for the judgeship which we now
recommend be instituted as soon as the cer-
tificate of the election may be issued that he
may not be recognized as our authorized

"The Ranchero thus accounts satisfactorily
for the increased vote of this county :
" By an act of tho last legislature no less
than three unorganized counties (Encinal
Duval and Lacalle) were attached to this
county thereby nearly trebling its former
area and almost doubling its voting popula-
tion. Under said law the present jurisdiction
of our county extends from the Nueces river
to within a few miles of Laredo on the Rio
Grande 150 miles from east to west and
100 miles from north to south."
The above was cut from the State Gazette
of September 15 MS. The account will
not be so satisfactory ii for one moment you
take a map of the State made before the-e
three counties were created and while look-
ing at the proportions of Nueces county
compare it with the present Nueces county
proper together with Duval Encinal aad La-
salle. The area has not been increased fifty
per cent. much less trebled.
Then again as to the voting population
being almost doubled please turn to the
State Constitution Art. 7 sec. 34 last clause
" Every .new county as to the right of suf-
frage and representation shall be considered
as part as the county or counties from which
from which ii was taken until entitled by
numbers to the right of separate representa-
tion." So you see the voting population of
Nueces county could not be increased at all
the act of the legislature attaching tbe three
new counties to Nueces for juicial purposes.

From the Richmond Examiner Sept 7 1M0. 1
The Rev. A. Bewley Methodist Superin-
tendent and missionary in Texas was hung
by a mob a short time since on the charge of
; being an abolitionist. The New York Ckri-
I tian Advocate says he was a devoutly pious
and inoffensive man. e suppose the Advo-
cate would consider a man quite 'inoffensive''
and " pious' if he should set all tbe slaves at
the South to murdering their masters. Does
