|Order by the Mayor of Charleston, South Carolina Prohibiting Negroes from Riding in Carriages. An editorial examines the arrest and imprisonment of a minister in a federal prison, while an article extols respect for rulers and another preaches the danger of sentimentalism. Another editorial explains that slaves should not be taught to read; rather, they should be kept in submission. An article compares soldiers with Christians in desire for front line action. Letters to the editor include first responses to the paper. About one-fifth of page 3 is devoted to war news, including commentary on the "desperation of the Yankee government, evinced by the emancipation proclamation of Lincoln" and his suspension of habeas corpus and declaration of martial law.
