So. Carolina view of free negroes

They Need the Negroes. The Raleigh (S.C. Standard of Oct. 7 says that the Northern and eastern counties of that State are in a deplorable condition. Why? “Full one half of the negroes have been run off by the Yankees, and every species of property is constantly subject to their depredations. Every day adds to their misery, which must be enhanced by the Yankee Confiscation Act.”
