Memoir of John Caldwell Calhoun free pdf Excerpt from Memoir of John Caldwell Calhoun: To the City of Charleston, Which Has Recently Exhibited a Magnificent and Impressive Funeral Pageant in Honor of the Illustrious Dead, This Memoir Is Respectfully Dedicated The death of this illustrious citizen, long identified with the public service, and mourned with a depth of sorrow more general, more solemn, and more impressive, than has ever distinguished any statesman since the decease of Washington, renders the tribute of praise, at once an appropriate and first duty. The deference which men of all classes pay to great abilities and incorruptible integrity, is a tribute due to a sense of the immortality of the soul and to the eminent superiority of virtue. When a life is found to be full of exhibitions of an exalted mind, and of devotion to principles of honor and morality, men, irrespective of mere difference of opinion, award it, involuntarily, the highest homage of their good opinion. Envy itself, which always accompanies the steps of the good man, and detracts from his fame and misconstrues his motives, worn out in the contest, perishes on his grave: and contemporaries, who are ever distrustful of success, and invidious in concessions to merit, are the first to hang willows over the bier of one, no longer capable of exciting jealousy, or of triumphing in the race of life. It has been remarked, not unfrequently, with less of surprise than of disparagement, that Mr. Calhoun had a hold on the affections of the people of South Carolina, unequalled in the history of public men. This veneration for his person and opinions, has often been attributed to the predominence of a popular leader over the dependent, yielding mind of the public. This supposition is untrue. If asked to state the reason, which more than any other, caused the extraordinary popularity of this statesman, we would say, it was his stainless honor and incorruptible good faith. Out of these virtues, incomparable as they were, grew his self denial, amidst the promptings of ambition- his firmness in the cause of right! We will not say that, in every instance, Mr. Calhoun saw the future with a perfectly true glance- or that the objects at which he looked, invariably sent back into his orb of vision, a reflection entirely correct, not sometimes broken by the media intervening - not occasionally obscured by rather hastily formed conjectures - But this we believe - He ever looked at things with honest intent - with an anxious wish to ascertain the truth, and to avoid evil- and he both honestly and boldly spoke out what he conceived of the mischiefs or advantages presented to his mind.
