THE PACIFIC APPEAL. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 3 May 1862
THE PACIFIC APPEAL. SAN FRANCISCO : SATURDAY, MAY 3, 1852. We have a year before us in which to work for the obtainment of our rights at the hands of the next Legislature. We failed this year from want of time, and from lack of unity of action among ourselves. We should not have so many different plans of action, but we should work in harmony together, each one, if necessary yielding somewhat of his own opinion for the sake of uniting on some general measure. While we are thankful to our white friends, and are willing to receive aid and advice from all parties, we are unwilling to leave the whole responsibility on them. We are the most interested in this case, and while we admit the white community are also deeply interested, still, being tho ones who are personally injured by the existence of these unjust laws, we main, tain that we should take the initiative. Action was commenced this year too late. Nothing was done until after the Legislature had convened, and then a petition was...

Our Library. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 3 May 1862
Our Library. We cannot boast of a very extensive editorial " Library," but we hope, through the liberality of our friends, it will increase. We have still to content ourself with an old-fashioned wooden pencil, our unknown friend not having made his donation. Can't you get up a Library Club somewhere ? Don't b®- bashful! Send along those " Books, &amp;c." " Kingstonian's" communication is received. We would willingly give it a place in our columns, but our friend will perceive that his remarks are inapplicable at the present time.

The May Festival at Apollo Hall. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 3 May 1862
The May Festival at Apollo Hall. On Thursday evening, May Ist, the chil. dren attending our Public and Sabbath Schools, accompanied by their friends and parents, had an ovation tendered them, under the auspices of a Committee of Ladies. The exercises consisted of singing by the children and an address by Dr. Johnson. On entering the Hall, the children, accom* panied by the Orchestra, sang, " God Save the Queen." After the singing, Miss Lucy E. Johnson was crowned as the May Queen. A similar ceremony was had over Geo. Bell, a youih, as the May-King. Hence those two, among the juveniles, were the crowned heads of the evening. The children were tastefully dressed and observed the strictest decorum. The company, as a whole, was large and respectable. The festivities ended with Terpsichorean exercises, participated in by nearly all present. The proceeds, arising from the refreshment tables, with the one-dollar admission fee, are to be applied, we are informed, to the benefit of the A. M....
®ommuni(ations. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 3 May 1862
®ommuni(ations. For the Pacific Appeal. Observation. Sacramento City, April 22d. As the art of pleasing is to be learnt only by frequenting the best companies, we must endeavor to pick it up in such companies, by observation, for it is not sense and knowledge alone that will acquire esteem ; these certainly are the first and necessary foundations for pleasing, but they will by no means do, unless attended with manners and attention. There have been people who have frequented the first companies all their lifetime, and yet have never got rid of their stiffness and awkwardness ; but have continued as vulgar as if they were never out of a servant's hall; this has been owing to carelcsness, and a want of attention to the manners and behavior of others. There are a great many people likewise who busy themselves the whole day. and who, in fact, do nothing. They have possibly taken up a book for two or three hours, but, from a certain inattention that grows upon them the more it is indulge...
[From our Sacramento Correspondent.] [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 3 May 1862
[From our Sacramento Correspondent.] According to promise, I now take up my pen, to give you a faint sketch of the city of the Plains, its appearance at the present time, and the desolating aspect of one portion as it now is, caused by the ever-memorable overflow of the American river, which flooded the city, on the 9 th of December, 1861. Up to the Bth of December 1861, compared with the destruction and desolating aspect, in the utter ruin of property, which now meets the view of the spectator on every side, Sacramento then exhibited an unexampled degree of prosperity —the Paradise of California. Prior to the events of which I now write, but a few years had elapsed, since '» Sacramento has suffered from both fire 8 and floods, but not so destructive and so crushing to the energetic spirit of her i citizens, as the flood which visited this - city the past winter. t On the morning of the 9th of December, 3 between the hours of seven and eight, int telligence was sent by those who res...

futttl). ; For the Pacific Appeal. j LOVE'S FABEWEIJj. ■ Whene'er we part, since part we must, Say, shall we ever meet again, Or is the hope wherein we trnst A cheerless hope, embraced in vain ? . And e'en the future that we deem So bright on fancy's radiant scroll, i Is it a rainbow tint, a dream, A mere delusion of the soul ? And shall I ne'er again behold That gentle form, so highly prized ? But, ah 1 the term is light and cold; Dear form of love, how idolized! For there is not, in all the oarth, A being so endeared to me, jfpr is there one that e'er had birth Of more angelic symmetry. Aud ami never more to heed The gentle wooings of thy-voice, So soft and low, so sweet and clear, That oft hath made my heart rejoice ?

JJeUrthms. [ [Fro» the New toek- Times.] ! A RIVAL OF TOUSSAINT L'OUVEBTUBE. THE ADVENTURES OF " POTOMAC JIM." I spent three weeks at Liverpool Point, the outpost of Hooker's Division, almost opposite Aquia Creek, waiting patiently for the advance of our left wing to follow up" the army, becoming, if not a participator against the dying struggles of rebeldom, at least a chronicler of the triumphs in the march of the Union army. During this time, I was the guest of Col. Graham, of Mathias Point memory, who had brought over from that place, (last November,) some thirty valuable chattels. A part of the camp was assigned to them. They built log huts, and obtained from the soldiers many comforts, making their quarters equal to any in the camp. They had friends and relatives. Negroes feel as much sympathy for their friends and kin as the whites, and from November to the present time, many a man in Virginia has lost a very likely nigger, for the camp contains now upwards of a hundred fat a...
Stripe* and Death for the Loyal. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 10 May 1862
Stripe* and Death for the Loyal. We copy from an eastern paper the following letter from Gen. Hooker's D!. vision, dated Jan. 10th. Can men who' in the ordinary affairs of lite, are not idiots, look for the success in putting down the rebellion, so long as crimes like that recorded in the subjoined extract are aided by us? " One of the most cruel and atrocious deeds of the barbarous slavemaster was perpetrated by one Samuel Cox, living five miles below Port Tobacco, who is said to be an ex-State representative, a returned Rebel, the captain of a cavalry company organised for the Rebel army, bat disbanded by the rebel troops, and a contraband trader. When Col. Dwight of the Excelsior Brigade scoured that portion of the country with his regiment, Jack Scroggins, a slave, represented to the Colonel that Cox and his Confederates had secreted a large amount of ammunition and arms, and true enough, these arms and ammunition were found in Cox's house in an adjoining marsh. The regiment mov...
War and Slavery. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 10 May 1862
War and Slavery. THE PACIFIC APPEAL. SAN FHANCISCO : SATURDAY, MAY 10, 1852. The Appeal can be had at J. W. Sullivan's News Depot, near the Post Office. The war which is now ravaging our country, bringing in its path ruin and desolation, has hitherto been, on the part of the Government, a war of ideas alone. The South has all along, had two objects in view; with them it has been a war of facts and ideas: they fought for Slavery: the preservation, the extension and the perpetuation of Slavery—a living, tangible and actual fact: they fonght also for the idea of Government; that, however, was but a secondary consideration: the great primal cause was Slavery. The Government ignoring the cause, contended not for the extinction of Slavery; they fought only for an idea—the preservation of Government; hence there was not that ardor, that enthusiasm among our troops, as that which actuated the Southern armies. At a later period another fact became apparent to the Confederacy: they were fight...
