Our Relation to the Government. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 11 April 1863
Our Relation to the Government. THE PACIFIC APPEAL. SAN FRANCISCO : SATURDAY, APRIL 11, 1863. The innovations adopted in many of the Constitutions of the Northern States, by inserting the word " white," for the purpose of disfranchising colored Americans, was not seriously felt or considered by the friends of freedom and progress, until about the year 1838, when Pennsylvania held a Convention in PhiljflJelphia to revise her Constitution, the ostensible object was to alter the section which read : In elections by the citizens, every freeman, of the age of 21 years, having resided in the State two years next before the election, and within that time paid a State or county tax, which shall have been assessed at least six months before the election, shall enjoy the rights of an elector : Provided, that the sons of persons qualified as aforesaid, between the ages of 21 and 22 years, shall be entitled to vote, although they shall not have paid taxes. Art. 3, §1. At that time, the State wa...
CORRESPONDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 11 April 1863
CORRESPONDENCE. Lamentable. Stockton, April tth, 1863. Mr. Editor—Mr. J. M. Gilyard, long a resident of this city, has, for some time, given evidence that all was not right with his mind. This fact revealed itself more forcibly some 12 months ago, during a revival of religion in this city, at which meetings he became a constant attendant, and in the course of the revival, he made a profession of the same, and gave evidence of being a zealous convert. But it soon became evident that his mind was not able to contemplate and solve deep mysteries which he desired to understand, and in the present revival his mind gave entirely away, and he conceived that everything that took place was by his consent. On Thursday last, it assumed a very severe form, and he was conveyed from his business to his house, in a high state of mental derangement, which continued until Saturday, at which time he was examined by a board of physicians and pronounced insane, and was conveyed to the Asylum for proper...
From the Christian Recorder. Washington Correspondence. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 11 April 1863
From the Christian Recorder. Washington Correspondence. Washington, D. C., Feb. 28, 1863. Mr. Editor—Washington is again the theatre oi life and stir—activity prevails and everything is operative. The streets are thronged with every species of mankind, from Indian women in men's clothes, to any other color, shape or size you may call for. Strangers are coming in from all quarters, and flooding every hotel that can be found. Congress is in session night and day, and every gallery, lobby and vestibule is unintermittingly crowded with spectators of every sex, hue and caste. The Republican party, in view of the secession tincture thgt they fear will be so largely embodied in the next Congress, is pushing bill after bill through in rapid succession. They are fortifying the administration with money, men and means sufficient to meet whatever exigency may occur in the unfolding contingencies of the future. This they are doing notwithstanding the incessant goatbleats of such hydra-headed, b...

»l ■ — (f&gt;irre«)tf»taiir* cf Uiu K. Y. * What tho Nogro Soldier is Thought capable of doing. Hilton Head, March 3. This rebellion never will be crushed without the aid of the negro, never will be of any service to us without arms and a distinct understanding that he is to be treated at least as humanly within our lines as within those of the enemy. Upon visiting, however, the encampment ot the South Carolina Vofunteers, I was told that the negroes complain less of insults from their white comrades in arms than when they first put on the uniform of the national soldier. The old prejudice against them is dying away. They have finally compelled the white soldiers to respect them. Thus far they have failed in nothing they have undertaken. Already white regiments in this department are beginning to fear that Cols. Higginson and Montgomery may yet, upon some grand review, carry off' the banner for having the most serviceable and best drilled troops. I can select many regiments ...

•Catcst (Telegraphic |Uws. The Union Administration tickets have succeeded in Illinois, Indianna, Ohio and Connecticut, in the late Congressional elections. Chicago, April I.—The special Washington dispatch says, the entire delegation of Federal officers in San Francisco has been removed. Ex-Congressman Low has been appointed Collector of the Port, and J. Swain Superintendent of the Mint. New Appraisers have also been appointed. The removals were based on discoveries of fraud in each department, made by Special Agent Brown of the Treasury Department. "The Confederate loan would close on the 21st, the bids having greatly exceeded the amount needed—particularly in London. The report says applications in Liverpool were not very heavy. Paris telegrams say the loan was quite the rage there. The Times city article says it seems evident, so far as London is concerned, that it is viewing it as a cotton speculation. As to the attractions it possesses in other res.pects, there can be no doubt...

| Slaveholders and British Capitalists. mt. .1 1 i i • • « « The slaveholders' conspiracy is largely, nay mainly, indebted for its success up to the present time to the material aid which j has been extended to it by British capitalists. Two years before it broke out, their co-operation had been secured through the instrumentality of the highest diplomatic agents of the United States then in this country. Large advances were promised upon mortgages of enormous quantities of cotton, tubaeco and rice ; nor was the fact concealed by the Democratic party, that in the event of secession and war, almost any amount of pecuniary aid would be procured from this quarter. These powerful combinations in support of the slaveholders' conspiracy comprised the monetary, shipping and mercantile interests. As much as &lt;£16,000 and even .£20,000 have been subscribed by individual members of these assoccations ; and in one instance a sum of £5,000,000 sterling can be directly traced as the fi...

On tho Bills for the Admission oftho Testimony of Colored Persona in tho Court* of California. ' Mr. Speaker—It would indeed be strange, sir, it an enlightened body like that composing the present Legislature of California could listen to the just complaints of any portion of our people, without seeking to remedy the evils complained of and to give them the justice they required—not as as a favor, not as a boon, not as a concession or a mercy, but as q, right, an inherent and inalienable right, which the humblest creature on the footstooT of God might boldly and fearlessly demand. If tbe.horrible idols before which mankindnftve been bowing for thousands and thousands of years are now to be stricken down and trampled in the dust, though deserted aid alone in the cause of the right, I dare to become the iconoclast. If the prejudices of ages are now to be removed, how...
The Public School. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 18 April 1863
The Public School. THE PACIFIC APPEAL. SAN FRANCISCO : SATURDAY, APRIL 18, 1863. There are a great many complaints coming to us which it is not in our power to remedy. The basement of the old St. Cyprian Church building, wherein the public school is held for colored children, is in a very bad condition. It is a fact that the place is damp, badly ventilated, with no convenience for a playground, nor scats enough for the children, and every inconvenience imaginable for a school. Petitions have been frequently sent to the Board of Education by parents and others interested, and these petitions have all been very respectfully received, and referred to committees, and there the subject rests. This has been the case for five or six years. Who must we apply to if the Board will not act ? The school is under the control of the Board of this county. The State does not extend the common school privileges to colored children, although colored persons are taxed, in common with all others, to ma...

Communications. For the Pacific Appeal. What is the Matter with the Indians ? How is it with the Colored People ? Humboldt City, Cat., April, 1863. Mr. Editor —When I have given you information (of what I have been an eye-wit-ness) of the present condition of these American first-born sons, who inhabit the uncultivated portion of this country, you will be able to form a just opinion of this declining race of people. Beginning at the seaboard of this county, and miles beyond miles toward the interior, we traveled through continuous woodland and forest, whose lofty tree-tops seem to touch the sky, and around whose trunks and thick boughs our eyes were directed, arms in hand, with listening ears, to catch the first glimpse of the forest-folks, or hear the discordant music of their yells, which accompany the discharge of arrows and (sometimes) lire-arms, rendering peregrination rather unwholesome in these northern climes. After a few days travel, being lucky enough not to be pierced by ...
