Concerning Yanks. The following letter appeared in a number of the Charleston Courier; To the Editors of the Charleston Courier: I agree with you in the main in the remarks you make in your issue of the fourteenth, in relation to your use of the terms Yankee and Yankeedom. But as we ought to have a descriptive design, Yank Congress, Yank news, etc., etc. It is short, contemptuous, and descriptive of the thing signified, I am sorry to see you fall into the mistake of calling Yanks Federals, and of talking of Northern news. Northern and Southern are very well, as allusive to different sections of our Confederacy, or one country; but they arefor our subjugation, utterly ignoring the principles of the government formerly established over them, and utterly regardless of those grand landmarks with which alone all good practical popular governments can consist. Let it be Yank States, Yank people, Yank navy, etc., etc., Yank flag, etc., etc., a Yank, Yanks, etc., etc. Z.
