sWertum.o. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 30 May 1863
Selections. Colored Soldiers.—At the conclusion of the services in the Church of the Puritans, in New York, on the evening of May 3d, the Rev. Dr. Gloster (colored) said that he had received from the President of the United States the assurance that if ten thousand colored soldiers were raised they would be accepted, and that General Fremont would be assigned the command. He stated also that he had seen General Fremont, and received from him the assurance that he was willing to accept such a command. From the Marysville Ap An Interesting Land Case—The Colored Man. has Rights which the Gcvernment Respects. We publish a transcript of an interesting and important correspondence between the Register of the U. S. Land office at Marysville and the Commissioner of the General Land office at Washington, which fully explains itself. Under previous Administrations, acting in compliance with the spirit of the infamous Dred Scott decision, the United States Land Agencies have not allowed negroe...
Antipathy of Bace and Religion. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 30 May 1863
Antipathy of Bace and Religion. Two or three yeara ago a noted Hebrew Rabbi delivered a discourse upon the consoling text that some people was born to be slaves. If you observe, this kind of discourse is always preached by people who consider that they do not belong to that class. There is many a fine lady and gentleman who will tell you how greatly superior the system of foreign society is to our own IHiey think it an admirable thing to have " the common people " kept in their place. But they always assume that they themselves belong in another place. It is so comfortable to prove that other people were born to be dammed. You may hear one of these placid gentlemen saying, "Yes, my beloved fellow creature, you are born accursed. You are specially elected to have your children sold by another man to pay his debts. I am elected to keep mine, and buy yours if I want to." Ah me I if we could only hear the lion's story ? Well, it was amusing, as I was thinking of this worthy Rabbi, and o...
Progress.—Loyalty and Liberty. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 30 May 1863
Progress.—Loyalty and Liberty. Loyalty and Liberty go hand in hand. The Union of the future, we are encouraged to believe, will signify not only a vigorous nationality but a Government recognizing in the broadest sense the inalienable rights of man. There are ebbs and floods of the tide of war. Clouds and sunshine alternate above the battle-field of the rebellious South. Our national colors advance, but over ghastly heaps of the slain. The outposts have been carried, but the citadel is held with the unflinching energy of a satanic hate. Meanwhile, Loyalty becoms more resolute, and Liberty removes stone after stone from the edifice of despotism erectcd in the South. The enlistment of the negroes on the Mississippi is welcomed with applause by the white soldiers of the West, and excites far less opposition than the " paper proclamation " of emancipation. Maryland unites with Missouri in au earnest demand to be relieved of the incubus of slavery. West Virginia comes forth from the lire...
Freedom's Trials.—Acquiescence of the Whole North in the Enlistment of Colored Soldiers. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 30 May 1863
Freedom's Trials.—Acquiescence of the Whole North in the Enlistment of Colored Soldiers. THE PACIFIC APPEAL. SAN Fit AN CISCO : SATURDAY, MAY 30, 1863. When the Administration measures in relation to colored soldiers were introduced into the late Congress, the whole country was in commotion on the subject, and the proposition was discussed by those opposing it as a monstrosity. But a few month's experience of the workings of this powerful element of the war has proved to the enemies of our race, that the Administration and Congress, though resisted to the very death, have been more than wise in their legislation upon the matter. In every battle that has been fought by or with the aid of colored men, since those measures have been inaugurated, has proved their courage and endurance to be invaluable, and won the admiration of all candid und loyal men. The many regiments of colored men that are now being formed i u various parts of the country, creates no commotion. All are cheerfully ...
Commummliims. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 30 May 1863
Commummliims. For the Pacific Appeal. William Wells Brown's Book. This book comes far short oi' the truth, and is but a poor exhibit of the " genius" of the black man. Indeed, a more ex parte or garbled statement in relation to our origin, progress, present position and future hopes could not well be imagined. According to Mr. Brown, there are at least fiftythree intelligent colored in the world (for he does not claim his host for America) that may, in some degree, be considered " representative men." If, out of a population of 6,000 in California, we cannot multiply his figures by 4, then we are more mistaken than we have ever been before. Mr. Brown gives 17 pages to himself and but 7 to Banaker. His omissions are even greater than the follies committed. Let us look at the record. Mr. G. T. Downing is lauded to the skies, and the wealthy sire to whom he is " indebted for life and education" is forgotten. Is there a New Yorker wh&lt;#will not blush for this grievous omission...

JMttttPM. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 6 June 1863
Selections. Commander Charles Steadman. U. S Navy, born in South Carolina, who has been doing most efficient service in uncovering secessionists and in protecting Union men in Florida, writes to a relative that but for colored men he wonld have been wholly unable to manage his gunboat. He says half his crew were contrabands, who knew all the regions about him quite as well as sailors know the sea. He confesses that these black Unionists more than once saved him from capture and destruction. From the Edinburg Review, Jan. 1862. Review of Sewell's Ordeal of Free Labor in the British West Indies. (Continued.) So far we agree with Mr. Sewell. In the West Indies, whatever be the fortunes of individual planters, the negro is prospering, and, generally, the colonies are flourishing. Nor is it fair to say that, in any of the great tropical colonies, the negro is the flourishing, and the planter the ruined member of society. We have just enumerated three colonies wherein the planter now flou...
" Peace, Troubled Souls !*♦ [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 6 June 1863
" Peace, Troubled Souls !*♦ THE PACIFIC APPEAL SAN Fit AN CISCO : SATURDAY, JUNE 6, 1863. The Morning Call and Marysville Express have both been very much exercised about an article from a correspondent, which appeared in our paper on Saturday last, relative to the celebration of the 4th of July by colored persons. The Call, in its comment on the article, contained the following : Travelling Too Past.—The Pacific Appeal, edited and published by negroes for the negro population of the State, contains the following suggestion from a correspondent : " I think, Mr. Editor, that the time has fully arrived for us to participate in any public demonstration that may be made, to show to the world that we are unconditionally in favor of putting down the slaveholder and his rebellion. In my opinion we ought to celebrate the Fourth of July, for many reasons. * * * * Our citizenship has been clearly established by the Attor-ney-General of the United states ; then why not celebrate the Fourth of ...
I The Lecture and War Meeting. I r» i j _ ii- [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 6 June 1863
The Lecture and War Meeting. Pursuant to public notice a meeting was held in Zion Methodist Church, on Monday evening, Ist inst. Mr. Lloyd Brooks was appointed chairman, and P. A. Bell secretary. Rev. A. B. Smith opened the meeting with prayer, after which Mr. Peter Anderson delivered a Lecture on " The War and its Consequences." At the conclusion of the Lecture Mr. Anderson stated that the Pacific Appeal, our only organ in this country, was languishing for want of proper support, He had conducted the paper more than a year, its receipts being barely sufficient to cover the expenses : he had received no remuneration whatever, of that, however, he did not complain, but he wished to improve the paper ; he was desirous of enlarging it, which he could not do without aid, either by increased subscription or by voluntary contributions. Mr. Anderson read the proceedings of a meeting held in Sacramento on the 19th ult., for this object, and he hoped something efficient would be done at this...

Communications. For the Pacific Appeal. COLORED MEN OP CALIFORNIA. NO. I. Rev. T. M. D. Ward. When in 1854 the Right Rev. Daniel A. Pa3 r ne, of the African Methodist Episcopal Church in the United States, appointed the subject of this sketch Missionary Elder for the Pacific coast, he evinced a degree of judgment almost amounting to prescience. A more appropriate and judicious selection could not have been made. Among the many talented young men in that connection, none could have been found who united in himself so many of the qualities requisite for the particular sphere of duty to which he was assigned. Eloquent, energetic, fearless, conciliatory, mild in the expression of his opinions, but bold in the enforcement of duty, well versed in the theological tenets of his creed, he is just the man for the place, time and circumstances. Thomas Myers Decatur Ward was born in one of the interior counties of Pennsylvania. His educational advantages were very limited ; the ordinary two mon...
