South Carolina:

THE LAST DAY'S DEBATE ON THE TARIFF, IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES. ADDRESS TO THE PEOPLE OF SOUTH-CAROLINA, BY THEIR SENATORS AND REPRESENTATIVES IN CONGRESS; AND ADDRESS AND RESOLUTIONS ADOPTED BY THE STATE RIGHTS AND FREE TRADE PARTY, AT CHARLESTON, JULY 30, 1832. ALSO, PROCEEDINGS OF A MEETING HELD IN GEORGIA, &C.

Published by the [State Rights and Free Trade] Association, Charleston: 1832 12mo. 24pp, stitched, light foxing, pp 13-24 uniformly darkened. Good or better. A rare Tract issued by Nullification advocates in the heated contest over South Carolina's declaration that the Tariffs of 1828 and 1832 were void within its borders. Adopting John Calhoun's theory of the Union, which in turn derived from the Virginia and Kentucky Resolutions of 1798, the State Rights and Free Trade Party argues that South Carolina's power to judge the validity of federal law within its borders overrides the authority of the national government. The Party presents here its Address and Resolutions adopted at Charleston, and the Address to the People of South Carolina signed in type by Robert Hayne, George McDuffie, and other members of the Carolina delegation to Congress. The pamphlet calls itself 'Political Tract No. 13. August, ' It also reports on a like-minded Georgia meeting. FIRST EDITION. II Turnbull 277. OCLC 26458415 [4].
