CARDOZ0, Isaac N., journalist, born in Saran-nah, Georgia, 17 June, 1786; drowned in James river, Virginia, 26 August, 1850. His family moved, about 1794, to Charleston, South Carolina, where he received an English education, he became editor of the "Southern Patriot" in Charleston in 1816, and its sole proprietor in 1823. He had made himself familiar with the principles of trade and finance, and his paper became a recognized free-trade organ. When a public meeting was held in Charleston, in 1822, to present a memorial to congress against the restrictions on trade with the West Indies, Mr. Cardozo, notwithstanding his free-trade principles, opposed the memorial, holding that the restrictions were right so long as they were intended merely to force Great Britain into reciprocity. He took an active part in 1823 in the establishment of the Charleston chamber of commerce. After the tariff act of 1828 was passed by congress, he brought the matter before the chamber, and was one of a committee that drafted a memorial to congress that was afterward unanimously adopted at a public meeting in Charleston. Although Mr. Cardozo continued to oppose the tariff, he did not support the nullification movement. He sold his paper in 1845, and in the same year established the "Evening News," of which he became the commercial editor. He was a contributor to the "Southern Quarterly Review" and other periodicals, and published "Notes on Political Economy" (Charleston, 1826).
