    STATE RIGHTS. THE JOINT RESOLUTIONS AND REPORT, TO THE OHIO LEGISLATURE, AGAINST FEDERAL CONSOLIDATION: SESSION 1859 by [Nullification, Ohio-Style]

    Columbus: Rihchard [sic] Nevins, State Printer, 1859. Original printed yellow wrappers, stitched. 51, [1 blank] pp. A few fox spots on the last couple of leaves, else Fine. This rare pamphlet raises the banner of State Rights, opposing perceived federal "consolidation" and "encroachment" resulting from enforcement of the Fugitive Slave Act, a much-loathed part of the Compromise of 1850. Sounding like outraged, hot-blooded South Carolinians, Ohioans insist that "the whole sacred edifice of our confederation is supported by the separate and distinct, but consenting pillars of thirty-three sovereign and independent States." The Report describes a "complete nullification of State rights and sovereignty"-- the Clark County fugitive slave case. Federal marshals sought to arrest a Negro who, with the help of others, resisted. They were all arrested, but procured a writ of habeas corpus from a State judge, freeing them. A federal writ, issued at the behest of U.S. officials, then overturned the State court writ. To add insult to injury, federal marshals arrested the state judge who had issued the habeas, the sheriff who attempted to serve it, and the lawyer who had sought the State writ. Other horribles, demonstrating "aggressions" and "encroachment of the federal government upon State rights," are enumerated, with a plea that "recurrence to the fundamental principles of civil government is absolutely necessary to preserve the blessings of liberty." OCLC locates only the copy at the Huntington, as of November 2014, with plenty of Kirtas Technologies facsimiles. OCLC 228711849 [1].

    SOUTHERN AND WESTERN LIBERTY CONVENTION. A SOUTHERN AND WESTERN CONVENTION OF THE FRIENDS OF CONSTITUTIONAL LIBERTY, WILL BE HELD IN THE CITY OF CINCINNATI, ON WEDNESDAY, JUNE 11, 1845 by [Liberty Party]

    [Cincinnati, 1845. Folio sheet, folded to 8" x 10". [4]pp. Printed in typescript on rectos only, addressed in manuscript, with postal cancel, on page [4], to John W. Anderson, Columbus, Ohio; and ink signature 'S.P. Chase 1845.' Remnant of red seal. Couple of short tape repairs at folds. Else Very Good. This is the rare invitation to a significant anti-slavery conference. Salmon P. Chase presided, and is one of four men issuing this Call on March 10, 1845. Seeking a diversity of political views, the Convention sought the attendance, not merely of "members of the Liberty Party, but of all who, 'BELIEVING THAT WHATEVER IS WORTH PRESERVING IN REPUBLICANISM CAN BE MAINTAINED, ONLY, BY ETERNAL AND UNCOMPROMISING WAR AGAINST THE CRIMINAL USURPATIONS OF THE SLAVE POWER'." Chase and his fellows "look for a large and imposing Convention of the friends of freedom and free labor, and hope for a numerous attendance from the slave holding States." Relying on the sentiments of the Founders expressed in the Declaration of Independence, Jefferson's Notes on Virginia, the Northwest Ordinance, and other contemporary writings, the Liberty Party and the Convention claimed that, although the Nation was founded on the premise that Slavery was evil, Slavery has nevertheless taken hold of both major parties. This was probably the Liberty Party's era of greatest success, having received sufficient votes to deny the presidency in 1844 to Henry Clay. It later metamorphosed into the Free Soil Party and, finally, the Republicans. Not in American Imprints, LCP, Sabin, Dumond, Blockson.

    THE DANVILLE REVIEW. CONDUCTED BY AN ASSOCIATION OF MINISTERS. MARCH, JUNE, SEPTEMBER, AND DECEMBER, 1862, NOS. 1-4 by [Danville Review]

    Danville, KY, and Cincinnati, OH: Printed for the Association and Sold By Moore, Wilstach, Keys & Co. of Cincinnati, 1862. 8vo.

Number 4 has some soil and wear to wraps, with the rear wrapper detached but present; interior clean with minor spotting to the edges of the outermost leaves. Overall, Very Good. Contents include a variety of articles on the Presbyterian religion, original sin, "The Secession Conspiracy in Kentucky," Politics and the Church, Negro Slavery and the Civil War, Israel and the Sinai, and much else. The Danville Review was founded by professors at Centre College and Danville Theological Seminary in order to establish a Presbyterian quarterly more centrally located than those in the eastern states. Original editors were Robert J. Breckinridge, Edward P. Humphrey, Stephen Yerkes, and Joseph T. Smith, of Danville Theological Seminary; James Matthews, Jacob Cooper, and Robert W. Landis of Centre College of Danville; and Robert W. Landis, John M. Worrall, and Robert L. Breck, all of Kentucky. It was, as its Prospectus stated, "designed mainly for the exposition, advancement and defence of the Christian Religion, considered in its purely Evangelical sense; and for open resistance to whatever is hostile to it, or inconsistent with it... its pages will be open to the consideration of all other interests of man, and the discussion of everything that promotes or obstructs any one of these interests. The work is projected, and will be controlled, by persons, all of whom are members of, the Presbyterian Church in the United States of America, all of whom accept the standards of that Church in their obvious sense." Reverend Breckinridge used the publication in his fight to keep Kentucky from secession. Not in Lomazow.

    [Hartford?, 1799. Printed folio broadside, 7-3/8" x 12-1/4", completed in manuscript and docketed in manuscript on verso. Old folds, light foxing, else Very Good. An evidently unrecorded document on Connecticut claims to the Western Reserve, not located on ESTC, OCLC, or NAIP as of March 2017. "A general meeting of the agents of said proprietors, held at Hartford, on the 17th May, 1797", established a schedule of taxes. But Frances Bradley of Fairfield, failed to pay. Thus, on January 15, 1798, her property was sold for the amount of unpaid taxes, to Walter Terry of Fairfield. Lothrop Lewis of Fairfield, the tax collector, here officially transfers the property to Terry. His deed, dated March 30, 1799, is acknowledged on April 5, 1799. Lothrop Lewis, whose name is printed, also signs in ink; witnesses were Lewis Sturges and Samuel Rowland. In 1786 Connecticut relinquished claims to land west of Pennsylvania except for the Western Reserve, a portion of what is now south of Lake Erie in northeast Ohio. Connecticut assigned some of the Reserve to its citizens as compensation for losses suffered during the Revolution; and sold the rest to a consortium of Connecticut men, including Moses Cleaveland, who had formed the Connecticut Land Company. Their speculations were not successful, there being no effective local government in the Reserve capable of unraveling the tangle of land titles. Thus taxes imposed were frequently not collected. To force payment of the tax, on January 15, 1798 Lothrop Lewis conducted the sales. [Carpenter: ORIGIN AND LOCATION OF THE FIRELANDS OF THE WESTERN RESERVE, Ohio Archeological and Historical Quarterly, Volume 44, April, 1935, page180.] Lothrop [a/k/a Lathrop] Lewis [1759-1817], born in Fairfield, was its tax collector for many years. Lewis B[urr] Sturges [1763-1844], born in Fairfield, graduated from Yale, was clerk of the Probate Court from 1787 to 1791, a member of the Connecticut House of Representatives from 1794 to 1803; and a Federalist Congressman from 1805 to 1816. He spent his later years in Ohio. Samuel Rowland [1769-1837] was born in Fairfield, admitted to the bar in 1794, was a lawyer and town clerk for 42 years, and turnpike surveyor to the New York State line.
