Morality in South Carolina

Morality. – Mr. Burt of South Carolina, in his speech in the House of Representatives, said he could not express the intensity of scorn and contempt with which he regarded the miserable, upstart, huckstering morality of the North, in attempting to  ho’d up the domestic institutions of the South to the odium of the world, and we cast back  every epithet of offence, which had been used regarding  those institutions.
