[Hammond, James Hamilton? Hayne, Isaac William?]:

TO THE PEOPLE OF THE SOUTH. SENATOR HAMMOND AND THE TRIBUNE. BY TROUP. TRACT NO. 3.

Evans & Cogswell, Charleston: 1860 24pp, stitched into modern wrappers. Blank margin of title leaf has a chip. Light spotting. Good+. Sabin records, in addition to this copy, the other issue with 23, [1] pages. This 1860 Association tract contrasts, through articles "served up" in that Black Republican rag, the New York Tribune, the distorted, hateful view of the South shared by northerners; with the "cool-headed, sensible, unimpassioned" picture of the South offered by South Carolina's Senator Hammond. Tracing the intractable conflict between North and South to the country's birth, the author asserts that, "It is a great mistake to assign the election of Lincoln as the CAUSE for a disruption of the Federal Government. It is but the occasion." Secession and a separate Southern, slave-holding Confederacy are passionately urged. Page 24 of this issue prints an extract from the New York Herald, which tallies the growing Free State majority in the Union, and warns that Lincoln's election will destroy slavery unless the South secedes. The other issue's last page, unnumbered, prints the 'Constitution of 1860 Association,' whose purpose is "promoting resistance, by the slaveholding States, to the aggressions of the non-slaveholding States." 602 NUC 0351630 [5]. LCP 10436. III Turnbull 306.
