will forbear to drive the tax payer to
desperation. Once it was unctiously j
proclaimed that our country was the
asylum for the oppressed of all nations

coming a hollow mockery so t ar as;
South Carolina is concerned. Time j
was when our State signalized lier op-;
position to oppression and wrong. Is,
she losing this pristine virtue?
But I loyally appeal to our dear old
State to lighten the burden that is '
crushing some of her "honest tax:
