uals, but between political societies, the people, not of America, but of the United States, each (State) enjoying sovereign power and, of course, equal rights. Time and the occasion admonish me that I must arrest here the discussion of this interesting historical question. I have, of course, barely indicated the faint outlines of the grand argument sustaining the right of secession. Those who desire to go deeper may consult those great storehouses of facts and principles, the works of Calhoun, Bledsoe, Stephens, Sage, and our immortal leader, Jefferson Davis. It is not for me dogmatically to proclaim that we were right and that the supporters of the Union were wrong. I shall have accomplished a duty, and shall, as I believe, have rendered a service to the whole Union, if what I have said shall contribute to confirm the Southern people in the veneration and respect justly due to the cause for which their fathers fought, and, at the same time, to moderate the vehemence with wh

as just been published in Boston entitled John C. Calhoun, by Dr. H. von Holst. Every well-informee with tragic effect. On page 2 he says that Calhoun has no claims on the gratitude of his countryd for quotation by Dr. von Holst, proves that Calhoun rested his defence of the annexation of Texaseen, and not on the state of things, and that Calhoun, therefore, lied, because the facts were knowence, and so much of the first, as imputes to Calhoun a determination to have the die cast without he justification of secession based in 1861? Calhoun said of secession, that he who would propose se very words of Calhoun. The truth is, that Calhoun was fighting the secession programme in the out of the Union at the same time. To these Calhoun replied, in that same letter to Hamilton, as he. Such was nullification as advocated by Calhoun; this its utmost extent; no more. Such were so high a nature might be abused by a State, Calhoun said: I do not deny (that); but when I ref[26 more...]

of society, and to the hopes of civilization, that ignorance and vice may be exalted, and intelligence and virtue degraded! Do I exaggerate? Look at South Carolina and answer. See the land of Marion and Sumter, of Rutledge and Pinckney, of Calhoun and Butler, the prey and sport of rioting thieves and gluttonous plunderers, whose orgies continue days, months and years in the face of the nation and under Federal protection! Look at Louisiana! Behold a sovereign State sentenced to the chh salaries that tempt and feed them, and they will leave the places that furnish to them no other allurements. If high salaries continue, the greatest age of American statesmanship is in the past. We shall never have another Clay or Webster or Calhoun in the National Councils. These great men served willingly on a salary of fifteen hundred dollars and less. The Butlers and Chandlers—with their negro and carpet-bag allies—all but the spawn of a mad revolution—need seven thousand five hundred<
