In a recent patriotic speech of Mr. Reverdy Johnson, at Frederick, Md., on the 7th of May, the distinct authority of Mr. Calhoun is quoted as late as 1844 against the right of separate action on the part of aw material; the extension of that culture and the prosperity which it has conferred upon the South are due to the mechanical genius of the North.
What says Mr. Justice Johnson of the Supreme Court of the United States, and a citizen of South Carolina? With regard to the utility of this discovery (the cotton gin of Whitney) the cour on the loyal citizens of Western Virginia; they are straining at the leash in Maryland and Kentucky; Tennessee threatens to set a price on the head of her noble Johnson and his friends; a civil war rages in Missouri.
Why, in the name of Heaven, has not Western Virginia, separated from Eastern Virginia by mountain ridges, by clim
y could not hold that, as matter of law and regular political action, their ratification deed of May 23d, 1788, is repealed by their late ordinance.
Most truly and respectfully yours, Geo. T. Cubtis. Mr. Everett.
Appendix B, p. 22.
Hon. Reverdy Johnson to Mr. Everett.
Baltimore, 24th June, 1861. my dear Mr. Everett .
I have your note of the 18th, and cheerfully authorize you to use my name, as you suggest.
The letter I read in the speech which I made in Frederick, should be conduced, seemingly without knowing it, in his later life, to surrender to section what was intended for the whole, his great powers of analysis and his extraordinary talent for public service.
If such a heresy, therefore, as constitutional secession could rest on any individual name, if any mere human authority could support such an absurd and destructive folly, it cannot be said to rest on that of Mr. Calhoun.
With sincere regard, your friend, Reverdy Johnson. Hon. Edward Everett, Boston.
