150 SOUTH CAROLINA GENTLEMAN.
Especially when those he tricks his style don't understand,
And if he wins, why then he stoops to pocket all the stakes,
But if he loses, then he says to the unfortunate stranger who had chanced to win: "It's my opinion you are a cursed abolitionist and if you don't leave South Carolina in one hour you will be hung like a dog." But no offer to pay his loss he makes.
This South Carolina gentleman, one of the present time.
Of course he 's all the time in debt to those who
credit give, Yet manages upon the best the market yields to live, But if a Northern creditor asks him his bill to heed, This honorable gentleman instantly draws two bowie-knives and a pistol, dons a blue cockade, and declares that in consequence of the repeated aggressions of the North, and its gross violations of the Constitution, he feels that it would utterly degrade him to pay any debt whatever, and that in fact he has at last determined to secede. This South Carolina gentleman, one of the present time.
