On ibis point -- Civilis" is pri%,ilcged to
enjoy bis nil opinion. We wish :o take
in:o view. in this connection, only that
which is teceit aid unexplained.
.PThe assertion that Mr. Calhoun, in the
late Presidenli;l election. inftienced the
State in her vote, is tterly vidiout foun
I dation. We shoLtl like'to know wheire
- Civilis ' derived his infintatio. Tie
r very oppflositt of what he states is the truth
of the matter. The State supported Gen.
Cass in spite (if Mr. Calhoun. It is be
lieved i1ht Mr. Callhon has never been
in favor of Gen. Cass's election. It would
not he going too far, pehaps, lo say he
was opposed to-it. It is well knoWn. at
least, that he first inclined 'to Gen. Taylor,
on the .round, it is thouglt, of his being a
no party man ; hot after the Plii;adelphia
convention, Gan. Taylpr ailowin. himsell
to be maile expressly the Whig candidate,
Mr. Calhnun became etifirely neutral.
He so exp'ressed himself, at the Charles
totn meetiig, to which -Civiliia" refers,
;is he did, afterwards, in several letters
Iade public. if he ever chaiged his neu
trality, the change was never known to tile
Caroliia public, tnr communicated, so far
as we have been inflirmed, even to the
Carolina rulers." I
It is well known. also, that Mr. Calhoun
