Excerpt from Address of the Washington Society: To the People of South-Carolina

Fellow Citizens:

The intentions of the leaders of the Nullification Party are now disclosed. The veil is rent asunder; the mask is thrown off: the monster is shown in all its naked deformity: and the remedy of Nullification which was presented to the people clothed ill the robes of peace, stands forth openly in ail the panoply of war.

None hut the deluded ever doubted, that this contest must terminate in bloodshed and civil war - none else ever believed, that by placing this State in hostile array against the General Government, Congress will be so exceedingly alarmed, as to yield to all our demands and at once abandon the protective system; that the Representatives of twelve millions of freemen will be frightened into a compliance with the demands of the State of South-Carolina. - Who else can imagine, that they will suffer us to nullify the revenue laws and to remain in the Union until a Convention of all the States can be called to take into Consideration our right so to act: that it is even probable Congress will adopt so dilatory a proceeding, and permit the State of South-Carolina to enjoy for an indefinite period the advantages she would derive from so direct, flagrant and palpable a violation of the Constitution of the United States as is contained in the Ordinance just passed by the Convention - an Ordinance which gives "a preference to the ports of one State over another," contrary to an express provision of the Constitution, which they have sworn to protect and defend. - Who hut those who have been grossly deluded can believe, that Congress will permit the State of South-Carolina to secede from the Union. Congress has sacred duties to perform. and is called upon to fulfil them. It is well known, that the Nullifying Party look forward to forming a close alliance with Great Britain; and it is rumored that their leaders intend to implore the aid of that nation in the event of any contest with the Federal Government.
