Forty Years the Interval Since
Carolinian Has First
William E. Gonzales of Colum
bia, nominated by the president last
week to be envoy extraordinary and
minister plenipotentiary to the re
public of Cuba, will be the first
South Carolina citizen in 40 years
to be invested by the Washington
government with a ministerial port
folio of the first order.
No diplomatic appointment of
grrade equal to that of minister to
Cuba has been held by a citizen of
Soatb Carolina since James Law
rence Orr, minister to Russia, died
at his post in the Kassian capital.
May 5, 1873.
This Swate, by the way, has in
different crises had three sons, each
of distinguished ability, resident in I
St. Petersburg, as representative?
of the United States near to the
person of the czar. Henry Middle
ton (1820-1830) was the first and
Jas. L. Orr the third. The second
was Francis Wilkinson Picken?,
who was appointed in 1858 and re
quested passports in 1800. Middle
ton's name, even from amid the
names of half a dozen other famous
Middletons, still shines clear from
out the mists of the years, because
of his patriotism and his skill as a
diplomatist. Pickens, grandson of
Gen. Andrew Pickens of tne Rev
olution, was at various times a mem
ber of the lower house of the gen
eral assembly, a member of con
gress, a State senator and governor
of South Carolina. He is one of
the few South Carolina statesmen
of the past century deemed of such
importance as to require biograph
ical mention in the new edition of
the Encyclopaedia Brittanica.
James L. Orr a graduate of the
University of Virginia, a lawyer
andan editor, was for 13 years a
member of the State legislature, for
10 years a member of congress
part of the time serving as speaker
of the bouse of representatives; was
a member of the Confederate senate
was governor of South Carolina un
der the Johnson Reconstruction,
was a federal circuit judge and as
stated above, died minister to Rus
Nomination of Capt. Gonzales to
be minister to Cuba effeots a certain
balance in respect of the representa
tion of different portions of South
Carolina in diplomatic service.
Pickens lived at Edgetield and
hence was identitiad with the low
country. Orr was from Greenville,
and so was credited to the Pied
mont. Capt. Gonzales, residing at
the capital an<* having done here
his life work, may be said to repre
sent the middle seotion of the State.
South Carolina in ante-bellum
times produced some of America's
greatest diplomatists. South Car
olina statesmen in fact devoted their
attention chiefly to diplomacy in
the early years of the constitution.
Later their attention was absorbed
by domestic politics. In 1795
Thomas Pinckney (minister to Eng
land, 1792-4, and to Spain, 1794-6),
negotiated with the Madrid govern
ment "the most brilliant treaty the
country had gained since the sign
ing of the peaoe." In 1797 Charles
Cotesworth Pinckney, his brother
taught France to respect his coun
try by his defiance of the demands
of the corrupt Directory in his an
swer, "Not a sixpence, sir!" later
popularized in "Millions for de
fence, but not one cent for tribute!"
Waddy Thompson served with dis
tinct'on as minister to Mexico from
1842 to 1844. Calhoun, as secre
tary of state in 1844-5 conducted
the delicate negotiations with Mex
ico and England with skill that
promoted the advantageous outcome
of both disputes.-The State.
