of the
Abbeville Advertiser

The Advertiser is published every Thursday: and devoted to the politics literature

and general news. Born and reared in South Carolina it will, of course, be expected

that we advocate State Rights and State Sovereignty. A strict construction of the

powers delegate to the general government is the polar star which shall guide and

direct us in our postition on the great questions of protective tariffs and interned

improvements and national banks. The very salvation of the south depends on holding

every department of the federal government to a strict constructions of its powers. The

strenuous and unflinching advocacy of Southern equality and Southern rights shall

ever hold a predimuant place in our columns. We will stand apon no platform of principles  with Northern men who interpret those principles differently from the

Southern interpretation. We are uterly apposed to all compromises. The history of

all the great contests between the North and the South, which have terminated in

compromise, proves beyond a doubt, that the South has been the loser in each and

every one of them.

In a word, we are for the South, her interests, institutions, equality in the Union and

equal participation in common territories.

In addition to this we will advocate the interests and claims of Henry county, and

also of all the surrounding counties.

It will afford us pleasure to contribute our feeble aid to the advancement of Southeastern

Alabama. We rely with confidence upon the support and the aid of our own equity in

our enterprise. We feel confident that the citizens of Henry county will sustain their


Our friends can materially aid us by taking out prospectus and procuring subscribers
