FREE MARKET OF CHARLESTON.
To the Cilixens of Charleston and the People of South
Carolina 'jena ally, and to the Farmers and Planter s
especially, fr om the mountains to the seaboard
The Free Market of Charleston, one of the noblest
and most useful charities extant, after more than n
twelve month of successful operation, is in danger of
suspension and even linal stoppage. It is an institution,
founded by private patiiotisrn and benevolence,
endorsed by the ciiv authorities of Charleston, and
recognized and encouraged by the Legislature of the
Slate. Its great and liigldy useful purposes is to supply
provisions, free of expense, to the needy fumilias of
soldiers and seamen, lighting the battles ol their country,
or dead in Iter service; and upward of eight hundred
families depend on its bounty for their daily bread.
It has become a great public necessity, and it is tha
duty of every christian and patriot, male and female,
rich and poor, young and old, to contribute to its support,
in proportion to menus and ability?the rich man
out of h:s wealth, the poor man out of his poverty,
the widow with her mite?every large stream should
pour, every little rill trickle its refreshing waters into
this great reservoir of patriotic benevolence, to be
uitpenseu hi Lrou-uiesseu bounty to the wives ai.d
children, the widows and orphans, the sisters and other
female dependents, of our brave soldiery and seamen.
The dual stoppage, or even the suspension, of
this charity would bo one of the direst calamities that
could befall our City and .State?it would inflict distress,
suffering, and even starvation on numbers now
comfortably fed by its bounty, and perhaps, lead to
bread-riots, in our conservative city, to her serious injury
and deep disgrace. Come, then, fellow citizens,
to the rescue, promptly, liberally, efficiently, and not
only save the Free Market from destruction or suspension,
but sustain it. in heallhfiil vig< r, as a God blessed
mid man-hles^ing institution. Let donations in
money and in kind pour in lavishly from every quarter
of the City and State; and the consequences will
be happy indeed. Not only will bre.id. and meal, and
meat be sustniningly furnished to soldier's and seamen's
families. but the heart of the wanior will be
cheered and his arm nerved to victorious battle against
the vandal and ruthless foe, by the comforting conviction
t at his wife and little < nes are patriotically and
sufficiently eared for. by their fellow citizens,at home.'
Let our farmers and planters especially, in every section
of the trtate, send liberal stq plies of vegetables
and provisions, from their gardens, their fields, their
barns m d their smoke houses and swell to overflowing
the great reservoir of Free Murket charity.
Charity is twice blessed?it blesseth him that gives
as well as him that receives?and blesses the giver
even more than the receiver.
Come up. then, one and all. to the hallowed work,
and not only earn the soldier's and seamen's undying
gratitude, but la)* up treasure in Heaven, where neither
moth nor rust doth corrupt, nor thieves break in
