]Maybe it is because Charlotte is an old, dear friend in whom she can entrust better council or at least try to persuade into thinking otherwise. It wouldn't be quite proper for her to say the same to Mr. Wickham, who she doesn't know quite well (or very well at all as she finds out later) and since he is a gentleman (hmph).
I was just looking at this too. It seems that Lizzy is also somewhat prejudiced against Charlotte because of her choice of a marriage partner. Lizzy's inconsistent behavior may have stemmed more from her dislike of Mr. Collins than anything else. What makes me think that is the way she describes both.
Lizzy's description of Miss King: "She is a very good kind of girl, I believe. I know no harm of her." (Chapter 17)
Lizzy's description of Mr. Collins: "My dear Jane, Mr. Collins is a conceited, pompous, narrow-minded, silly man: you know he is, as well as I do; and you must feel, as well as I do ..." (Chapter 24)
