The New York Tribune Criticises Sherman's proclamation.

--The New York Tribune Severely ‘"cuts up"’ Gen. Sherman's proclamation to the people of South Carolina. It shows that he most carelessly conceded the mischievous doctrine of ‘"State sovereignty,"’ and in fact placed himself and his troops in the attitude of enforcing the national sovereignty over a State which, by his own careless admission, has a right to oppose them as invaders of her territory. The Tribune also regards the whole proclamation as wordy and in bad taste, and hopes that the worthy General will fight better than he writes.--So be it.
