Sarcasm directed at So. Carolina

“ We had rather,”  says the South Carolina Nullifiers,   “ that our fair State should be the cemetery of freemen than the residence of slaves.” —-  Let us see how much rather .  The total free population of the State is 267, 784.  The slave population is 315,501.  Admirable language this for the 267 thousand to utter in the hearing of the 315 thousand.  May not the latter say   —“ It shall go hard but we will profit by the example.”      —-Transcript.
