Born in Cumberland County, N. S., McCully practised law in Amherst and was appointed to the Legislative Council of Nova Scotia in 1848 serving as Solicitor General and Government leader in the Council (1860-62). As editor of the Halifax Morning Chronicle and the Novascotian and subsequently of the Unionist and Morning Journal he was a strong advocate of Confederation and attended the Charlottetown, Quebec and Westminster Conferences. Called to the Senate in 1867, he resigned in 1870 to become puisne judge of the Supreme Court of Nova Scotia, a post he held until his death. He died at Halifax.
