The oration by Mr. Lamar on the tmvailing of the monument to Cal lionn recently was worthy of the ora tor. Mr. Calhoun is known to most Americans only as the great champion of State sovereignty and a teacher of the doctrines that led to the wir of secession. He was much more and else than that, but his connection with the cansc of the South and his ardent conviction of the righteousness and ex cellence of slavery, sustained for years an the Senate with unflinching courage and remarkable ability, made it una voidable that his eulogist should dwell upon this feature of his career .and upon the ideas by which that career ivas guided. Mr. Lamar did this with entire candor and, though with avowed sympathy with Calhoun, in a spirit of unqualified loyalty to the Union. There could be no more strik ing and concl...
