Freemen, Freedmen and Slaves. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 16 May 1863
Freemen, Freedmen and Slaves. There are a large number of colored persons who have never been in one of the Slave States, and never knew what Slavery was, except in theory, or by its prejudicial effects in the Northern or Free States. There are also those who have been born free in the South, or, in some instances, received their freedom in eirly youth, and migrated to the North. These two classes of freemen combined have, in a great degree, shared the benefits of the liberal school system prevalent in the Northern or non-slaveholding States. Though disfranchised in nearly all the States, they are well versed in the theory of, the Federal system and the workings of the Government —not only familiar with its workings, but as well if not better adapted to exercise the elective franchise than many thousands who have been naturalized and become citizens by adoption. Our clergymen, our doctors of medicine, our artizans and our mechanics, notwithstanding what culture and education may hav...

Strike of caulkers against a negro at the navy yard.—The Navy Yard is a great institution for strikes among the workmen, and if they don't have something for excitement at least once a month, it is set down as a remarkable event. A very respectable colored man, from Baltimore, a day or two since, applied for a situation as caulker and graver, being reccommenued by parties who knew him as a good workman. He was hired and went to work. There are about two hundred and fifty men in the caulker's department, and yesterday, without taking any preliminary steps in the matter, such as a meeting or a consultation among the members of the whole gang, about one hundred and sixty of the workmen came to the couclusion that they would not work if the colored man was allowed to remain in the yard, and refused to answer to their names at roll-call. The Captain of the Yard, Mr. Taylor, upon learning the facts of the case, ordered the discharge of those men who refused to answer at the roll-call. The...

Communications. For the Pacific Appeal. Jottings. Victoria, V. 1., May 4, 1863. Mr. Editor—A melancholy event took place in one of our agricultural districts, Sanaach, a fortnight ago. Steven Anderson] a colored man, who had a lawsuit with a confidential friend, by the name of Williamson, a blacksmith by trade : the court held its sitting for some time, and at the conclusion of the suit decided in faver of Anderson. Williamson became indignant and swore vengeance against his once sworn friend. Some months after Anderson entertained strange forebodings, and in the interim (knowing the shouting propensities of his adversary) repaired to a friend's farm to abide for awhile. He was at supper, and his friend, P. Richard, beside him: a dog in the house became restive ; he opened the door fer the purpose of seeing what was amiss without ; instantly he received the fatal wound from a pistol or some such weapon. The ball passed a few inches below the heart and penetrated upwards. The suppose...

StkgtHphic New York, May 12.—A special telegram from Washington says Hookers army has not recrossed the river. His personal y arrangements, however, indicate that he expects to be employed in some new enterprise soon. , 1 The Richmond Enquirer notes the rebel Surgeons' reports stating the rebel loss to be nine hundred killed, seven thousand wounded and twelve hundred prisoners. Dr. Suckley, Medical Director of the army of the Potomac, in charge of our wounded on the field, reports that they are all comfortable. They number about 1,200. Gen. Hooker has issued an Order, tendering his congratulations to the Army for the achievements of the last seven days. He says, if it has not accomplished all that was expected, the reasons are well known to the Army. It is sufficient to say they were of a character not to be foreseen or prevented by human sagacity or resources In withdrawing from the south bank of the Rappahannock, before offering a general battle to our adversary, the Army has give...
The Ship of state in Dixie's Land [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 16 May 1863
The Ship of state in Dixie's Land Was built to traffic in Colored Man, to strengthen and Perpetuate Slavery in America. They said, if Southern men be true, There 'a nothiug easier for them to do. With sword in hand they may brawl, Negroes for sale in Fanueil Hall. It appears a general thought Among the Southern cotton lords, That they can, with a mere nod, Rule this nation as with a rod. Now it's blowing a dreadful gale, Xheir ship has lost most every sail, And she's down on her beam ends, Nor can she ever right again. A sea has parted her whole rope— A leak commenced—her cable broke— And to the leeward stands the land :— A watery grave for robber men. This ship was built of Calhoun wood, Or else it better would have stood ; When it struck upon the saud, It might have got off again. The word is passed, both fore and aft; (Jet in your boats and leave the craft; We '11 board old U. S. A. again, And there forever will remain. Now let them all return again Beneath the stars and stripes ...
