Associated all his life with his uncle, Honorable R. M. T. Hunter, he had drawn his political principles from the same sources of inspiration; he was a great admirer of Mr. Calhoun, and was ardently devoted to the South and to the principle of State's rights. He was no mere politician, but his political faith was founded in philosophical principles, strengthened by deeep thought and reflection, and believed in with all the ardor of his nature.
