Bear their eages high no more,

father, a strong supporter of the Uni".- In the
unfortunate political schism of 1832; eed Nulli
ficatio:, when cockades were the .o"der of the
day, he was 4iametrically opposed 'ar.d "penly
maintained the principles of tht Union party on th

ed. Thrcugh his ilflucnce, and by -the fore of
his e}oqulwnce and argument, he coutriiuted in a
great measure toward cooliig down ti-e excited
passions of the .people which had he,n iroused
and led astray tirough aid by the wily sophisus
of artful' politicians and designing de;nagogua"
whosh only aimn was to g re oflice a:id power,
.and to divide among themselves the loaves and
fislres.. In January, 1833, this wife ar4 himself

before the Chie' Justice, leaving seven chiidren,
feur daughters and three sons. In Deceibe:
1835,. the Court of - Appedis was aboi?shed : he
- as -assigned to the Law Court. Ierc again,
says the Chief Justice, I committed a ;reat mis
take. I ought to have resigned, and ldsso;neof
the dominant party have- taken my pla:e. I
could have made my way at the Par, or in some
other laudable pursuit." In I848, he was elected
Presid'er:t of the Greenville & ColumbiaiRailroad,

The grert intellectual gift., of Cliief Jusiice
O'Xeall, the robust structure of his faculties nat
urally governed his orptorv, made him singularly
effective in arpmeri;t, and led him to close grap
piing with every subject. that intereite:l him.
Ie'despised all flights oT fancy and imagination ;
shunned everything collatt::1 oi- discui-sive. This
turn of mind made him always cateless of or a
nient, often naglirent of accurate diction; his
elrcauenc^. was fervid, rapid, copiuns, carrying.
a1o . withi hini the minds of his audience, not
suffering them to dwell upon the speal:er or th:e
speech. He was freqently digressive, even
narrative and e'pipus in his illutstrations, espe
cially in" his temperance add resses. -Ilis most
brilliant efforts were the inspiration of the mo
ment. . -
ena audge he- possessed the first great quality
for dispatching basiness -(the reel not affected
dispatch of L'rd Bacon) a poker of steadily fix
ing his attention-upon the matter before him and
keeping it invariably filed and directed toward
the successi-e argiments addressed to him. In
pronouncing his judgments he did it ina a strain
of clear, unbroken fluency, disposing alike in the
most luniinons crder of all the fscts and -arg
ments in the case ; reducing-the most ertangled
masses of brolen and conflicting statement.into
4 the cleatest. and. simplest arrangement, we ghing
nttters, settling doubts, -passing over difticulies.:
by a riason-more decisive than was condensed,
giving outt impressions of the case in a clear vein,,
with argument enough to, show why he so
thought, and prove him right,and in such a man
'ner as to. make the hearer forget that it was a
judgment h'e was hearing by ov~er-stepping the
bounds which distinguish a. judgment from a
speech, It would be no exaggeration at ill to
assert that . Chief ,Justice O'Neall'a judgment,
like Lord Eldon's, were more - quickly formed
and rore o'stinately adhered to than those of
any otlier jndge, with such criou3, dificlt and
tcoinplicated questions as lie had to dispose of.
As a lawyer, it might be said of him as or
Lord aansfield, that he declared .the llaw while
he argued his case, wnd, while- others lcft only
the imprersioo on the hearer that many autho-l
rities had been citei.-and much reading display
ed, his argument penetrated into the mind, a::l
made it ajsnt ~to his nosition without much re
{ rding th support ,they found from other
quarters. is correct and rn-y knowiedge of all
.eral matters was - lre by no meanis his onl at!
puoert-. He was ready in dealing with evidence;
be culd present to the jury the facts of lus case
boldlv, -dw i hi - relief, delivering himseJf,pitk
an emphasis ihat .,as peeuliariy impressive. -
In debate he had that discernment of an ad
versary's weaknessq,and The advantage to be
aken of it, rhich is in the war of -words what
fi.eld.
In the practice or composition he appears
never to h.ave bec:eme f.a 'ia He corresponded
extensive'y on all su'jeeTs; v:rote for the jbur
n:ls of the day ; yet he 'was carcless, n" e geut
and sloven;y beyond most - t riters His books
show an evident want of expertness in compo
s tion.
In conversaion he wa a imodel of excell?nce,
full of infotre"ation, wi;-t and playf-l, if necessary
be-times ; never ill-natured for a moment, rever
afraid of argument, courting discussion on all
subjects s. i0iout any regardto their rr ative im
p,rtauce, : if reasoning was -his natural element.
He bad no mean powers 4f wit and mnuch quick-'
ness.of delicate repartee. In relating.aneed<g,es
I be exceld most nicr and had au abundant s%.e
of thern, prsofessiornal aid otherwisA; his applica
