Such is the language which the
Picayune employs in reference to the
most practical and successful statesman
who has impressed his character
upon the last half century. Never
was a more unfounded or erroneous
estimate ina<ie of any man. John
(?. Calhoun's characteristic quality
was the practical, real, and tangible
tint tire of Ins ideas and theories.?
JS'one of our statesmen were as successful
as he in carrying their principles
into practical operation ; none

What did he not accomplish??
Starting in public life at an eventful
period, he was t! 3 leading spirit of
(Tie most brilliant era in our history
since the administration of Jefferson.
He was the life and snirit of the war
of 1812, which lie contributed powerfully
to conduct to a successful termination.

to it great efficiency, and restrain
its evil tendency. In Couplers
: he was ever the leader in all the inensj
ures calculated to advance the pros,
purity of the nation, without violating
I the republican features of the Constitution.
As chairman of the committee

Transferred by his sense of duly
to his Stale, from the chair to ihe
floor of the Senate, we find him battling
with unconquerable heroism in
behalf of the rights of the States,resisting

And was he here a mere theorist t?

the striCi construction of the
Constitution. It was in vain Webster,
Adams, and Clay, those beaux
ideal oi the Picayuoe's practical
state men, endeavored to foist upon
the nation their high tariffs, tfieir
American system ., and their grand
schemes of internal improvements.?
They all fell before the battle axe of
the great thooriit of South Carolina.
What of them now remains?
Then, too, to crown his earccr of
victory over theories and demagogue
Ism, ho aided powerfully in extinguishing
(he great hanking system,
which had become a Upas tree of
corruption and evil to the nation.?
Did he not succeed in this? Who
was the great, the eloquent, the in
vincible advocate of the principle of
separating the banks and the Gov*
ernmcnt?of the sub-Treasury system?
Is not this an existing practical
measure? To wJamca do
it but to the great theorist of South
Carolina? As Secretary of State, to
which be was called by the unanimous
voice of the peonlo, he arranged
and consummated the annexation
of Texas. That surely was a
practical measure. Why?everything
he ever advocated may now be |
lounct an acknowledged truth or u
real fact? Lie was the practical
statesman pur excellence ol the nation.
True, he reflected and elaborated
well his ideas before he put
11 ion) into form; he was a theorist in
the high, the exalted, the Haconian
sense, the man who reasoned a posteriori,
who collected within the powerful
crucible of his intellect, all the
facts and ideas bearing upon a question
or principle, and having subject-1
od them to a powerful test, brought
forth the pure gold of truth and wisdom.
It was his remarkable talent
of reflection, of deep thought, of careful
examination, which, united with
a great contempt for the arts of the
demagogue, obtained for John C.
Calhoun the character of the more
man of theory and intellect, among I
superficial word-mongers iyid admirers
of temporary expedients and
quid nunc politicians.
But the Picayune refers particularly
to Mr. Calhoun's jealousy of fed
oral encroachments on the l ights ol
! the States, as proofs of the impracti
ble character of his mind and opinions.
And here, to show the competency
of our cotemporary to determine
matters of this sort, we will
give a slight example of his own practical
tendencies, of the lucid and
common-sense style in which lie regards
matters and convr.vs liis
"The drearier outpourings wrung
from an over-fraught heart by exigencies
lhal arc disappearing, an*1 the
imaginings of a mind startled by misapprehensions
which arc not likely to
he realized, are indeed discernible.
But these arc such a conserve of the
essence of his teachings as the passage
against sinners present of the
promises of the lloly Scriptures."
What should we think of such Ian
gunge lrom John (J. Calhoun? We
would rightly conclude that the only
"legacy which he would ieavo behind
him 1 would be something even more
unsubstantial that) unproved theories
?mere words, words, words! But
are these "drearier outpourings" peculiar
to Mr. Calhoun, that for their
expression he should be set down
among the wild theorists? Were

are they not feelings natural to sagacious
intellects and patriotic, hearts,
in every land where freedom is regarded.
and where a vigilant jealousy
of the approaches of power and oppression
is esteemed one of the first
duties of those entrusted with the defence
of the rights of the people. i

in terms of great eloqueuce,
and alluded to his sons then employed

of whom is now the Senator elect.
