The South Carolinian, in alluding to the public demonstrations in approval of Mr. BROOKS, uses the following language:
"And, to add the crowning glory to the good work,
the slaves of Columbia have already a handsome subscription, and will present
an appropriate token of their regard to him who has make the first practical
issue for their preservation and protection in their rights and enjoyments as
the happiest laborers on the face of the globe."
According to the Carolinian, the approval of Mr. BROOKS'S fellow citizens, their congratulations and testimonials, are completely obscured by "the crowning glory" of this negro demonstration! And, in the same view, we suppose that the negro deputation-- and why should their not be one? -- when it arrives in Washington, will take precedence over their matters, while they present to Mr. BROOKS their "appropriate token."
Such a proceeding, while it offends every sentiment of Carolina society, is calculated to bring ridicule and disgrace upon the whole movement.
