studious. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 20 June 1863
studious. The Richmond Examiner accuses the Whig of Virginia of acting in the spring elections in accordance with their old Union views. It says they endeavor to scduce Democrats by appealing to the " old Union sentiment," by attempting to prejudice them against Democratic leaders, as the authors of the present war, and by saying that they (the Whigs) could have prevented a dissolution, and are now the only party capable of restoring the ancient order of things. God never sends an angel to afflict a human soul, but what another follows in its fo jtsteps to heal and to bless. From the New York Evangelist. Female Orators.—Miss Dickinson. At the risk of losing our coat,from our back we jostled in with the crowd last Tuesday evening to hear the suddenly-be-come-famous Miss Anna Dickinson. Escaping with a whole skin through the throng, and paying our half-dollar to a colored ticketrtaker at the lower door, we found a narrow perch on the edge of the platform. One look at the stage, on whi...
Europe in Our Quarrel. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 20 June 1863
Europe in Our Quarrel. Suppose Great Britain and France should unite in recognizing the independance of the Rebels ? Well : what of it ? That would be annoying, but nothing more. To all intents and purposes, saving a diplomatic Action, they have recognized that independence already. Mason writes letters of complaint concerning blockade to Lord Kussell, and receives civil second-hand answers : Slidell spends quite as much time in confidential intercourse with the higher French officials as does Mr. Dayton. It Would be a gross violation of what may be termed the settled public law of the civ ilized world to recognize the Rebels as independent ; it would form an ugly precedent for the future ; but it would be of small practical account to us. It would break no bones and no blockade. The question of Union or Disunion is to be settled by battles, not protocols—in America, not in Europe. On the whole, we shall continue to be let alone.—N. Y. Tribune.
Exemption from Draft. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 20 June 1863
Exemption from Draft. The Quakers in New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Delaware have memorialized Congress, asking exemption from the draft and the fines, which they deem a penalty imposed for exercising the right of conscience against the shedding of blood. Whilo they say, "We deplore and utterly condemn the wicked rebellion fomented by misguided and infatuated men, which has involved the nation in strife and bloodshed, we earnestly desire, while the Lord's judgment is so awfully manifested, the inhabitants of the earth may learn righteoudnees." The Friends close by praying that peace may again be restored throughout our whole land, and that Christian liberty, harmony and love may universally prevail among the people. A Southern MoNAßcny Proposed.—A correspondent of the Louisville Journal, who has recently returned from Paris, writes that he received from a friend intimately connected with the French Court, information to the effect that seventy-three of the leading men of the S...
THE PACIFIC APPEAL [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 20 June 1863
THE PACIFIC APPEAL SAN FRANCISCO : SATURDAY, JUNE 20, 1863. From the Bulletin's report of the doings of the Board of Education, on Tuesday evening, we make the following;extract:— 44 Attention was called to the wretched accommodations furnished by the house now occupied by the colored school, and a recommendation that a building be put up for them, on the corner of Mason and California streets, was adopted." So, at last the Board of Education has taken steps to furnish the colored children a school-house, which will be fully in accordance with the requisitions of the case and the dignity of the people of this city. The present location of the school, which is in the basement af the old St. Cyprian Church building, certainly reflected much discredit on the Board, as well as on the people at large. The action taken upon the subject, on Tuesday evening last, is highly commendable and duly appreciated by our people, and it is hoped that, ere [ long, the example set in this respect will ...
(Emtttnuntattotts. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 20 June 1863
(Emtttnuntattotts. For the Pacific Appeal. The Lesson of the Hour. We live in an age of wonders. The nation who stood forth as the Symbol of power and greatness is, to-day, divided into fierce factions by the twin demons of treason and human bondage. We are passing through a terrible ordeal, the result of our cupidity and avarice. Right and wrong have met on the fields of war. The sword is the abiter in this dreadful conflict. Oppression with his iron heel still treads out the life-tides of the crushed and broken of heart. The wail of captive millions still stirs and thrills the great heart of the Unseen, and falls mournfully upon the ear of Infinite Pity. Men trample upon their fellows, and thus treat with contemptuous scorn the immutable principles of Justice, Love and Truth. The grinding in the prison of oppression waxes lower and still lower. The contest between tyranny and liberty grows more and more desperate. The cohorts of freedom and the minions of oppression are fighting n...

§ oft*J|. For the Pacific Appeal. "Hours of Sadness." Respectfully inscribed to W. H. Miller. by c. P. 8. Oh I why is my heart so sad ? I feel very dull to-night, And even the pale moonbeam' Shine sorrowfully bright. I gaze on the calm still night "With painful sense of woe, And tears unbidden dim my sight— Why, why is this so ? I fail to penetrate the causc Of this secret dread, Which steals o'er me at times, Like a spirit from the dead. Or like some sorrow undefined, Something I've loved and lo?t, . Lone phantoms come before my mind, Uncalled, like Banxuo's glicst. j'm deaf to all save one sweet sound; I cannot hear it now : Perhaps that is the reason why The cloud is on my brow. All lonely as I sit and muse On brighter days now gone; There seems a spirit hovering near Of some dear distant one. Unmoved I mingle with the gay, The joyous and the free ; The cup of sweets that others sip Is filled with gall for me. The music has no charms for me : The merry laughing din Falls heavy on...

•XatWt IrifpipWc gcutl Washington, June 17.—A committee from Harrisburg waited on the President last night to urge him to authorize Gen. McClellan to issue a call for volunteers to repel the invasion on the border free States. They stated that all the soldiers recently mustered out of service, to a man, would undoubtedly respond to it, and a large army of veterans would thus be suddenly improvised. New York, June 17.—Special despatches from Washington say : The march from Falmouth to the present portion of the army was severe. Many soldiers fainted from the effects of the heat. The nudes and horses gave out. In the Third Corps alone 20 men died from sun-stroke. A cavalry force was left behind to take care of and bring in those who were exhausted. The creeks and rivulets, and even the springs on the road, Were nearly dry, and afforded no relief. Quite a large number of officers left Washington yesterday for the North, to aid in organizing and putting into the field the militia that h...

s [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 27 June 1863
s The city of Chatham has always been noted as the centre of attraction among the colored population of Canada. Daring the past week, a jury was called in one of the courts of the city, among whom was a colored man. Five of the white jurymen peremptorily refused to act unless he was removed The judge, however, stated that he recognized no distinction 011 account of color, and accordingly fined the white men $5 each for contempt of court. Four of them paid the fine, but the fifth, unable to raise the money, was sent to prison, but was subsequently released, ' From the Liberator. Annual Meeting of the American AntiSlavery Society.

Russia and Poland. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 27 June 1863
Russia and Poland. Whether in a military point of view the Poles may be successful or not, it is already certain that their revolution will hasten the realization of their ardent wishes. Public opinion in Europe has become a Grand Power, and never before has it given such proofs of its irresistable force as now, when two of the least liberal and most powerful monarchies of Europe have found it necessary to acknowledge its sway. The ship Norwegian brings the important intelligence that even the old stubboi'n king of Prussia deems it safest to yield to the pressure of public opinion in favor of non-interfer-ence. The Russian Government acknowledges its wrong in the treatment of the Poles, by far-reaching offers of concession. It has already revoked the infamous conscription law. It is now reported to be willing to grant an amnesty and reforms, and one ol tho semi-official papers of Paris reproduces tlic rumor that a ukase will be shortly issued, reconstituting the kingdom of Poland as...
The African Army. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 27 June 1863
The African Army. The raising of colored troops is proceeding with a fair degree of speed and success. It is quite probable that the negro army question is having a bearing on the conscription question. It would be singular indeed if the nation should demand a draft, if a sufficient force of colored troops can be raised for the purposes of the war. Nothing could more startlingly show the utter and brazen impudence of the rebel leaders than their doings in reference to the negro army question. Ever since the Ball's Bluff defeat, and before, they have employed negro soldiers. The best of their batteries at Grand Gulf was fought by negroes. Yet their irresponsible congress has recently passed a pretended law providing for the deliberate murder of Union soldiers of African blood, and of their officers of whatever blood. Now that the United States Government is raising negro soldiers, the whole country is asking whether that Government has the resolution to promise prompt retaliation if ...
Fugitive Slave Case. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 27 June 1863
Fugitive Slave Case. Washington, May 13, 1863. A fugitive slave case, pending in the Supreme Court for this District, excites much interest. The case technically is that of Andrew Hall against George W. Duvall, of George, of Maryland, the former being a negro boy claimed as an absconded slave of the latter. The boy was taken up here on a writ issued by the judges, under the law for the rendition of fugitives from labor escaping from one State into another, &amp;c., and being lodged in prison accordingly, a writ of habeas corpus is sued out now by Messrs. Dean and Joliffe, seeking his discharge. The counsel for the owner are Messrs. J. H. Bradley, R. S. Coxe and C. H. Utermehle. Chief-Justice Carter to-day said that it was not for this tribunal to review the decisions already pronounced by Superior Courts and the practice of both the Executive and Legislative Deepartmeuts as to the constitutionality of the law. That is settled. Thin institution of Slavery, this madness arbitr...
