Athens Southern Watchman (Newspaper) - December 3, 1862, Athens, GeorgiaLatino and sex Cautivo do government nor am it j of of both Mies Are unknown to us. It it. Amp Ilion to raise armies. The men who de that Constitution lived in Tho midst colonial and British ideas and usages. A hey had been accustomed to see armies raised Only by voluntary enlistments and when they speak of raising to May naturally suppose they speak of armies to be raised m the Mode to which they had been accustomed and in the Only Mode which they had been in Tho habit of considering to be consistent with Liberty. So much sir for the British government. I beg to refresh the memories of gentlemen As to the history of another government and ask them if that government deserves contempt i allude to a government which has passed away not the old United states government but that Othor government which perished in giving birth to the United states government the government of tiie old confederation. Sir that was a glorious old government. Whatever its defects Aud its faults were it is entitled to the gratitude not Only of every american but of every Lover of Liberty the wide world Over. It was the government that achieved our liberties. It was the government that successfully resisted Tho most powerful government upon Trio face of the Earth. It was the government from Whoso hands we have received All the blessings we Havo enjoyed and for which we arc fighting to Day. It was a government whose memories Aro dear to our heart. Who will Rise up and say that government deserves the coi tempt of Mankind i and yet sir that government had no compulsory Power Over the states. That government had not the very Power the want of which gentlemen now affirm subjects any government to the contempt of Mankind. Their Power Over the states was advisory Only not compulsory. They could get no troops from the states but Buell As the states would Send them and yet that government was adequate to the achievement of Liberty and to its achievement against the greatest Power that existed upon the Earth. Can our people close their eyes to the grand lesson which is to he gathered from the history of that government we Are warned by gentlemen and by some of our Public journals against the danger from Tho stale governments. Sir i have no such apprehension. Let gentlemen who Are alarmed from an excess of state rights Tako Comfort from the history of the old confederation there is no danger from that Quarter. Centralization consolidation Central usurpation is the Rock which to have to dread in the future. We judge the Utu by the past and judging our future by Tho american past r proclaim that Tho danger which we have to apprehend is not from the states but from Central usurpation which Hasu Arcady resulted in Tho destruction of the old United states government and in our secession and in our repudiation of it on account of that usurpation. Gov. Troup has been quoted As authority for this statement that would be deserving of contempt if it lacked the Power of conscription. Gov. Troup wus comparatively a Young Man when he uttered that sentiment. It was years afterwards that lie As governor of Georgia became dishing used As the Champion of slate rights. If you quote his words sir As authority on your Side i Point you to his subsequent deeds As authority on my Side. If you quote his language which was uttered in a healed party contest and under the indignation which to Felt against the new England states for their Blue Light federalism i Point Yon to what he did As Georgia a Champion when her i gets were assailed by the Federal government. A h Hen gov. Troup uttered that sentiment under a Strong Bias arising out of ii Payti Curr emergency and out of a special desire to compel Tho new England slates to perform what be thought was their duty. He did in that Chat gds contest express the idea that Sovereign states might be coerced. In my judgment it was a great error and it was an error afterwards repented of and nobly atoned. And this leads me to remark upon another View in which conscription presents itself to my mind. The essence of conscription is the right to take away the fighting men of the states against the will of both Tho citizens and the states. It is the right make what you will of it to coerce Sovereign states. It is the right which or. Lincoln is now claiming Over us and which we Aro resisting with our blood and which Trust we Snail never cease to resist until the pretension is abandoned. I do not say it sir with Tho intention to offend anybody but i declare conscription As it presents itself to my mind is in its essence and its Constitution the very embodiment which our Gallant armies Are to Day resisting. It is a Power in the Central head to coerce Sovereign states. A few words now As to the history of conscription and i have done. Its justification has been placed upon the plea of necessity. Sir it is a Foole plea. There never was any necessity for it and there is none now. This plea of necessity is generally a pretext and under our Happy Constitution it is always untrue. Our Constitution was made for War of Well As for peace and the Powers conferred by it upon the different departments of the Confederate government Aro adequate to All the necessities of War without any enlargement of them by doubtful construction or by usurpation. The particular necessity which has been alleged for conscription was a necessity to seize and hold in service the twelve months men whose term was about to expire. But sir this is pretext. It is within my knowledge that As Long ago As last fall several months before the expiration of the term of the 12 months men Gen. Toombs then a member of the Confederate conic is introduced a Bill to replenish the army and Supply the places of those 12-months men who would be going out. His Bill was in conformity with the of recognized constitutional Mode of re requisitions upon Tho states for troops leaving to the states the appointment of officers where the Constitution places it and i have heard it said by those who Noard him on that occasion in support of that Bill to Mude the greatest so our of his life. But it was lost because the president said to did not want troops at that time. The Quot 4>f replenishing the army was then 1 los rep until Tho eve of the Cupi to i a months men and then con a caption Way sprung upon the country skill i j lip la v. -4 Casio. Their attention had been called in a remarkable manner to Tho replenishing of Tho army in a constitutional Way and they had refused to make provision for it deliberately intentionally refused. Tho appointment of the officers was Tho milk in the Cocoa nut. But sir i go further and say that with All their attempts to create a necessity for conscription they did not create it and that at the very time it was passed there was not the slightest necessity Lor it. The 12-Mouths men Whoso time was about to expire could have been retained in the service under the old constitutional Mode of making requisitions upon the states just As Well As by conscription and i defy any Man to deny it. It will not be denied in this debate. This sir is another Ono of Tho Points in my argument which i predict will not be touched. Congress in making its req u Isi t ions u Pon states Lead Only to shape Tho requisition so As to specify the 12 months men As the troops which they desired and the states by their Sovereign Power could have furnished each for herself her 12-months men who were then in the Field just As she could furnish any of her citizens who were then at Home in response to a requisition. There was therefore no necessity for conscription. But the history does not Stop there we Havo had two conscription Laws. Has any Man dared to urge the plea of necessity in favor of the second one when that one was passed we had just emerged from a Serios of Brilliant victories. We had no troops whose terms were about to expire. It was a simple question As to the Mode of getting raw recruits from Home for our armies a ready in the Field. Where was the necessity in that instance for disregarding the rights of the states by repeating conscription upon us again sir the old constitutional Mode of making requisition upon the states was tendered by or. Yancy of Alabama. His proposition was voted Down deliberately voted Down upon no plea of necessity and Whon no Man bad the Hardihood to allege. Necessity. 1 Tell you sir and i Tell the it eople of Georgia that conscription has been put upon them and this great wrong Lias been done to Tho rights of her citizens and to her sovereignty from no necessity from no conviction of necessities hut from premeditation Aud deliberation. It has been a matter of Choice with our government and they intend to adhere to it to the end unless you drive them from it by rising in the majesty of a free people and calling them Back to Tho landmarks of the Constitution. This sir is the great reason Why t ask and beseech an expression from the legislature of the Sovereign Stato of Georgia upon this great violation which has been perpetrated upon the rights of her citizens and other sovereignty. The of Joel to be accomplished by such an expression of opinion on your part is to prevent its being drawn into a precedent for your subsequent oppression and to induce your rulers to recede from Tho existing aggression upon your rights.

Resolved that the con Federal government cannot raise armies from the militia or arms bearing people of the Sta compulsion except for the purpose of executing the Laws repelling invasion or suppressing insurrection and then Only through requisition upon the states for Tho troops desired leaving each state to exorcise such compulsion As May to necessary in her own Case and to appoint the officers for the troops she needs. Resolved that All Laws passed by Tho conf Odet Ato Congress to raise armies from Tho arms bearing people of Tho states by compulsion and without requisitions upon or concurrent action of Tho states Aro unconstitutional and within our Power to be declared void. While Georgia makes this declaration she also declares her willingness and determination to furnish to the end of this unjust and wicked War which our elem is waging upon us As she Baa done from the beginning of it All just quotas of troops that Muy be required of her in a constitutional Way. Resolved that auder the Constitution of the Confederate slates and Tho Laws of this Stato All the troops which Georgia assent to Tho Field under requisition from the Confederate government have the right to elect officers who Are to command them and that the Laws of Congress which deny or impair this right Are unconstitutional and in our Power to be declared void. Resolved that while the foregoing resolutions express our fixed convictions we Are still willing to leave the conscript acts undisturbed in their operations reserving to the state and her people such rightful remedies As May be demanded by future thanks. We return our thanks to Henry Allen esq., of Madison county who his subscription for the watchman instead of sending Usa 62 ragged slain plaster issued by some obscure individual sent us two bushels of meal which at present prices is Worth 64. Our thanks Are also due to on esteemed Walton friends messes. Willis Cooper and Samuel g. Locklin each of whom sent us two bushels of Corn last week at a time when it could not be bought in our Market. Such acts of kindness Are gratefully appreciated.

Solicitor Thurmond in reference to Tho enforcement of the late act against the distillation of Grain was handed in too late for this Issue of our paper. It shall appear next week. A in Tho Ine Antimo to Hope that not a sin Gnu distiller in Tho Western or any other circuit will to found violating the Law. Great As is the temptation to make whiskey now to Hope that patriotism and philanthropy will Triumph Over cupidity. It is a question of flite and death whiskey and starvation no whiskey and Broad. Every Man should feel it to be his solemn duty to see the Law rigorously enforced. Both wrong and impolitic we still know that resistance to it under existing circuit stances would be fatal to our cause and therefore to have constantly set on face against resistance. We believe the states and people ought to protest against conscription because it sin conflict with Stato rights und of personal Liberty. It was to Securo state rights that we loft the old government. It is True that the Security of negro property was made the pretext for leaving hut no intelligent Man was deceived by this. The real object to secure state rights which were constantly endangered by tiie Strong Federal element at the North. In cutting Loose from the a a old wreck a unfortunately we did not get rid of federalism. It was wide spread All Over Tho country North and South among All political parties. It is now permeating the land in High places and in Low places. The leaven is at work everywhere in the and in the Field in the press pulpit and forum. You May hear its language n the streets you May read it in the newspapers and hear it in the pulpit. Its outcroppings Arp exhibited by some in a desire to adopt a property qualification to restrict the right of suffrage and in others by denouncing office holders for degrading the a selves to the level of the common people now we regaled Tho doctrines of federalism As being highly destructive of All rational Liberty and shall oppose upon principle everything squinting in that direction. The Only safeguard to Republican Equality is a rigid adherence to state rights and opposition to centralization. Under to crying Tbs first a to it at Forill emergencies. Wit Gibson chairman.

Tho a dog Law has failed again. If Tho demand for Les Thor does not Check the growth and production of dogs Wool will be scarce next year As our legislature is afraid to touch the dogs.

To have ignored past party differences and Welcome into political Fellowship All who make Jefferson a Sublime doctrine that a a the people Are the source of All Power a and that All a just government derives a to Powers from the consent of the governed a the Corner Stone of their political Faith. This is the grand political truth which is destined to go Forth among Trio nations a conquer log and to conquer a until the people of it is the Tho whole Earth shall be made free the Only Hope of political salvation to world. A. A Quot there is no use in disguising the Fritot however that the great Battle Between jeffersonian republicanism and centralizing federalism has to be fought Over again. We do not think this is the time to do it though. When we have triumphed Over Pur foreign enemy will be Timo enough to throttle the More dangerous enemy in on Arnm As to the great crime of discussing the constitutionality of conscription after the supreme court Lia i pronounced the act constitutional we must confess we do not see the point1 of the charge unless the supreme court was instituted to. Think for All colossi we fully agree with the ton Stephens opinion on that subject. A the decision of the supreme c Only bind Tho action of inf riot Ries.

Daniel Lee the agricultural professor in the state unit ver. Sity Render any recommendation from us superfluous. To Are much Indab cd to him for the following practical song Bostons Aud Hope our readers will profit by them for to Southern watchman. How to have cheap leather. Almost every Reader knows that it costs an unusual sum to Supply a family with leather or shoes and boots at this Timo and How to remove Tho and excess of Price Are matters of sufficient importance to justify a few remarks having that object in View. As a Community to Are paying in part the tax which Providence imposes on Tow error of neglecting to Provido or produce Tho necessaries of Lito in our own country nature supplied us with a great abundance of Oak Timber and the Best tan bark in the world. It also gave us uncommon. To Iii ties for raising cattle and hides in this Region so that no people at the Noria or elsewhere have advantages for Tho Cheep production of leather Over those of Georgia. These advantages still exist and i anians. Ious to see them improved without disc red. Itable delay. Tanners in Athens Aro pay. Ing thirty five cents a Pound for Green hides which is just seven times Tho Price paid by Tanjore in the Stato of new York for hides of Tho same Quality. Instead of growing millions of acres of old Field Pine As we do in Georgia they grow Gruss and cattle in new York which give a population of Over four millions Good and cheap Beof milk butter and cheese in great abundance and leather at one tenth the sum per Pound that georgians now pay for it. Tho romans had a Maxim to this effect a a it is right to he taught by Tho we cannot have a plenty of hides and leather unless we prod co them and to cannot raise Fine cattle without grass nor tan leather largely and cheaply without be husband our Oak bark. In Riding Over Clarke county i see Farmers wasting tan bark every where by cutting Down Green Oaks in autumn and Winter for fire Wood and rails when the bark will not separate from the Wood and is lost. A Large Trio will yield a Cord of bark in the Spring which will tan three Hundred pounds of Good leather Worth six Hundred dollars at present prices. Think of a Community destroying bark enough to make a thousand tons of leather and then paying two Dol a Lara a Pound for sole leather which can he manufactured at Twery cents around am give a fair profit i speak from a Good Deal of observation when i say that fall three fourths of All the Oak bark suitable for tanning which god placed in this coun to has been thoughtlessly wasted. It in in Tho very nature of things that Sueb i Providence shall be punished. Let Tho people every where save and husband All Tun bark and encourage cattle raising -. And shoes and boots will be As plenty m feet to Wear them. With cheap bark a Tanner can give a Farmer a Pound of leather for a Pound of dry Hido and in the pm Mako a Fortune by the operation As thousands have done in the state of new York it is alarming to witness the Universal do i Striction of tan bark by the Felling of Lor cat Trees when the bark will not Peel id of coarse is not saved. While we Aro vow Tonly wasting Oak bark in Large quantities our armies Are wearing shoes made in Koc i land the leather of which was with i bark raised from acorns planted by lion hands.
