CARD FROM MR. McCALLA.
He Replies to Attack by a Columbia
To the people of the Third Congres
An ed:torial appeared last Saturday
in the columns of the State that re
quires an answer at my hands. In
that article. which is full of venom
anld malice. as well as ignorance. I
am charged xvith being a demagogue
f t1he worst type.
The writer Of the editorial kcast; of
his familiarity wvith my record and
priofesses to speak from that recori.

into the legislature a dozen or more
years ago. and says that in our -Tousc

never had the honor (f being a mem
her of that hody. In 1804 I had th'e
hoinir of being .elected in the state
senate from Abbeville ciunty and I
served1 four years in that body. That
is all the legislative services that I
hav-e rendered. I also had the honor
of being a -member of the Constitu

state against the encrcachmnents oif

of Lorrd Essex, then I plead guilty to
the charge. We are told in English
histo ry that Lord Essex was one of
the leaders against King Charles
when the latter souctght tio cc llect

WVhile a m-::i1r of the senate I
put through a LiU to require insur
anice cocmpanies to pay the fuill
amount for which they insured prop
erand thus saved to the people
of this state thouisands of dollars. I
was always in favor of liberal ap
propriations for educational purposes,S
and voted that way while a member
of the senate. I am not ashamed of
m y cotirse xwhile in' the senate, and am
willing to be judged by my record
there and elsexvhere. Btit I want

played the most 'ignorance" as well
as venom and malice.
