the subsjance of some portions, as the
j reader will see, is given in brief by the
editors. The first portion whjch wfe shall
quote relates to the Missouri question, ahd
is in the words of the Courier & Enquirer
"In 1820, he says, Mr. Calhounjbeihg

was required to give his opinion inj writ

on the constitutionality qf th 8th sfection
of the act for the admission f of Missouri
fnto the Ujtiion, and which section applied

of 1787, tp more than half (if the Whole

ter. Tiiese resolutions, MrJ Bentpi says,
were introduced by Mr. Calljoun, tojmake
a test for himself at the Presidential elec
tion which no Northern man could stand.
Before the debate came fon, however, the
proofs of the opinion, which! Mr. Calhoun
gave in 1820, were brought forward to his
utter confusion and the entire prostration
of his resolutions. These proofs consist?
ed of the original interrogation, propound
ed to his Cabinef by Mr. Monroe, jn his
own handwriting and the daft of af letter
trom him (o a tnend, stating thatfthese
questions were answered auirmatively by
every member ot the Cabinet, mrl Cal

hese records is a passage from the Diary
of J. Q. jfVdams, stating tjte samei facts
concerning the action of the members of
Mr. Monroe's Cabinet. These teltimo-!

The first th ing which struck us, on read
ing the first extract, was the utter want
of memory manifested by Mr. Calhoun,

exceedingly awkward predicament in
which it places him. That he did give
his opinion, In favor of the pow
