There have been upon our mind,
for sono time, several very serious
matters, upon'which it is our duty to
NpQak, but which involve such vast
responsibility that we desire not to
speak rashly. Our people havo suf
serod,so miuh, that he who would
lash their passions into fury again, as
we believe any writer gifted with pow
ers of invective can now most easily
do, assumes a tremendous responsi
bility. The press is the only rollo of
frecdotp loft the white inority in
South Caroliua, and those who con
duet it must beware how they abuse it.
In full view of the lamentable sitaa
tion, therofore, and with deep solem.

counsel resistaneo to the execution of

The articles, that have recently ap.
