After being amended m ta to ia elude the Goversor of the State. Kreaideat of tba Senate and Speaker of the House. It waa adopted The Chair announced the appointment or the coannlttee to draft a inmmary of the cauaea which indoced the aeceaslon of South Carolina, and also the four standing committees Mr. Rhett moved a reaotutlon to appoint a com mittee of thirteen for the purpoM of providing for trie aaaemblage of a Convention of the seceding Statea and to form a conatitutton. Adopted Thi OaDts ahck or Secession. Mr. Inglin made a report from the committee to prepare and draft an ordinance proper to be adopted by the Convention, as follows : "i* Ordmanct to duseirr Ik* Union between IU Stan of Son tit Carolina and otktr Statu unittd ivitk ktr mmdrr the com pott rntUltd tkt Comtti tutton of tkt United Statu of Antrim " We, the people of South Carolina, in conven tion assembled, ao declare and ordain, and It ia hereby declared and ordained, that the ordinance adopted by ua in convention on the 23d day of May. In the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and eighty-eight, whereby the Constitu tion of the United States of America w..s ratified. nit >lasi .11 ..> - -? -# ' c i umu ?t?v mi uv m auu ?

Tbe ordinance having been read, waa taken up and paaaed by a unanimous vote of l?l members Tbe vote waa taken at 15 intnntea put l o'clock. A* soon as its passage waa kuown without the door* of tbe convention, it rapidly spread on the atreeta, and the large crowd there collected evi denced their approval with immense cheering. Mr Mi lea moved that the clerk telegraph Ike member* of Congress representing tb? State at Washington; which waa ' arried unanimously. Mr. De Saussure moved that the ordinance be engroaaed on parchment, under the direction of tbe Attorney General, and be algaed by the prea ldent and tneinbera tbla evening, at Institate Hall, and that It be placed ami ng the archlevea of the State. The hour of haif-paat alx o'clock waa agreed upon aa tbe hour to proceed to Institute Hall for tbe purpose of signing the ordinance. Thk Dtoatk. Judge Magrath ?I think tbe special matter ef tblsordinance shauld be immediately considered To my understanding there la no collector of the Eiri. nor uunniaivr, now wuiiin UK limits oi >uth Carolina. What you have doo? to-day ha* extinguished the authority of every man in South Carolina deriving his authority from the General Government 1 am in favor of this body making uch provisional arrangementi aa may be neces sary in the interval which may exist between this moment and the time the Legislature may act I am not, however, to be implicated as sanctioning the idea that there la no lawful authority within the limit* of the State except the General Govern ment. Mr. Gregg ?After South Carolina ha* abroga ted the Constitution of the United State*, arelta law* gtlU in force! I think not. All the law* of Congress fall instantly to the ground on the pas sage of the act of secession. Mr. Cheves ?An immense chasm has been made in law. It is necessary that, to avoid inconvenience to the people, we should make temporary arrange ments to carry on the government. Mr. Gregg ?There is now no law on the subject of the collection of duties in South Carolina, now that we have accomplished the work of forty years Mr. Hayne ?The Congress of the United States is no longwr our government. It will be for our Legislature to say what laws tf the United States shall be continued, and what not. The simple act of secession does not >brwit* ill lam w? havp a f>rnt man v lawt on our statute books which were passed by the Governor and Privy Council Mr Gregg?The Congressional laws for the collection of the revenue are for the support of the Federal Government at Washlng'ou. All the post office laws fail oa our dissolution from that Government Mr. Mile*?We have now to deal with stern facta and realities We must prevent confusion and anarchy in the derangement of our govern ment affairs Things must, for the present, re main In statu quo, or coofaalon will arise Mr. Hayne ?Sudden action la Injurious. Mr. Chestnut?Two questions are Involved: Power and duty. We must prevent our people not only from incovenlence, but from a chaotic condition We inust revivify such laws aa are beat adapted to preserve us from calamities At to our duty, will you turn the ahlp of State adrift' W hat become? of her officers? Mr. Maaeyck ?There is no duty collector now for the p rta So too with the postofflre. All ar< swept off by this-act. My opinion is that the present system of postal arrangeiut nta is a nu sance The public would be better served by privat* parties between the citlea?like the system in Philadelphia and New York Have a postage ol one cent Instead of three cents, and to leas im portent places make ft ten cents or more Mr. Calhonn?We havej>uiled the temple dowi that has been built for three quarters of a century W e must now clear the rubbish away and recon struct another. We are now houseless and home less?We must secure ourselves for storms Mr Dnrkin?If that ordinance of secession tx passed things will still go on in tbecustom-bous< and postoffire exactly as now uatii otber arrange menu are made bv the convention There i nothing In the ordinance to affect tbe dignity honor or welfare of the State of South Carolina We must keep the wheels of government going The Constitution of the United states ia not en tl rely abrogated by the ordinance What lath legal tender for the payment of d?>bta If it ! nc tbe gold and silver of tbe United States ? Mr. Carvelln aald the present officers of revenu would be continued till the act of the Legislator authorized otherwise Mr. Brown ?There is no longer any rommunl cation with the Government from which we hi just separated. Mr. Ourkin.?The spirit of tbe ordinance I temporarily suspended till we treat with the Get eral Government Mr Gregg?The President of tbe United Stat* lias thrown down tbe gauntlet in bis tnessag< He baa said that It is his duty to collect tbe revenu< and be will do It. On one side tbe Federal Goi eminent claims tbe right and declares the intei tion to execute tbe power of collecting tbe revenv in our ports. Cla the otber side we have declare that we are free. I desire 110 compromise. It necessary to maintain that from 15 to :*) per cen of dtiti**s Imposed by the Congress of ibe Unite States should continue to be levied,otherwise o? people will suffer terrible calamity. A? to U carrying of the malls. let a preaent contract be a turned by South Carolina instead of the Unite States. Mr. Rhett ?This great revolution must go t with as little damage as possible to the countr Hv waking the federal a^entsours, the machine will move on. The federal laws of taxation mu not exist over us; we are now contending for U grent principle of taxation. 1 trust the preae system of taxation has fallen forever. Mr. Barnwell?We have seceded from t] United States and established our lndependenc We can't allow the United States to exercl authority over as any more. Let the postal co venlence be sacrificed, If necessary. There nev wa. anything purchased worth havlug unless the cost of sacrifice. Mr. Maseyck.?In regard to the mail, all i strictlons must be removed. Let us appoint e own officers. Let the collector of the port batt with the difficulties as they come. At 3 40 p. m the Convention took a recess, meet at Institute Hall at C 3o for the purpose signing the ordinance. As the Convention were leaving St. Andre* Hall, the chimes of St Michael's Kpiacoc Church pealed forth " Old Lang Syne" and otn airs. Intkeri Item.
