The Border States and Slavery. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 27 June 1863
The Border States and Slavery. THE PACIFIC APPEAL. SAN Fit AN CISCO : SATURDAY, JUNE 27, 1863. Of the five Border Slave States—Delaware, Maryland, Kentucky, Tennessee and Missouri—the latter is far in advance of the others in taking steps for the gradual or final emancipation of Slavery. The Convention in session in Missouri, however, seems rather tardy with • its majority and minority reports ; the latter of which, we must acknowledge, though not up to the standard of justice, is most feasible. From the telegraphic news of June 24th the following action, \ye learn, has been taken by the Conveution : St. Louis, June 24th.—In the State Convention, yesterday, the Committee recommend that the first and second clauses, 26th section, 3d article shall be abrogated, and slavery and involuntary servitude, except to punish crime, shall cease to exist in Missouri on the 4th of July, 1876 ; all slaves within the State on that day shall be declared free ; slaves thereafter brought into the Stat...

Communications. For the Pacific Appeal. Grand Festival for the Benefit of the A. M. E. Church. The Annual Communication of the Grand Lodge of the State of California, under the jurisdiction of the N. 6. Lodge, assembling in this city the present week, offered an opportunity for the members thereof to be present at the Festival for the above laudable object. After the usual ceremonies in Powell Street Church, with which the fraternity celebrate the festivity of St. John the Baptist, the " brothers of the mystic tie" assembled in goodly numbers at Apollo Hall, Pacific street. It was truly an interesting occasion, and brought together members of both branches of the Order, in social reunion. Addresses were delivered by Messrs. P. Anderson, W. H. Ilall, and Alex. Furguson. Captain Furguson was remarkably felicitous, typifying the Festival as an illustration of a Trinity in which all good Masons could unite—veneration for the Church, love for the Order and its mystic symbols, and allegia...
The Colored Regiment at Washington— Enthusiastic Meeting for its Organization. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 27 June 1863
The Colored Regiment at Washington— Enthusiastic Meeting for its Organization. The National Republican of May sth contains the following spirited proceedings of a war meeting, held in that city by colored men : A meeting of the colored citizens of this District was held last night in Asbury Church, corner of Eleventh and K streets, to open the ball in favor of a regiment of colored troops. By the time the appointed hour arrived, the house was densely crowded by one of the most intelligent colored audiences ever assembled in this city. In order to preserve decorum and to prevent any unfavorable demonstration by the ne-gro-hating, rowdy Copperheads who might be disposed to obstruct or defeat the objects of the meeting, the Provost Marshal sent a detachment of the 39th Massachusetts, who were posted at the doors of the church and in the aisles. In consequence, there were no such demonstrations, and, beyond an unusual enthusiasm on the part of the audience, perfect order prevailed. Col....

Lee's forces are evidently on the line along the valley of Virginia between Gordonsville and the upper Potomac. A distinguished officer expressed the opiuion that Gen. Lee intends to get the crops of the valley and adjacent territory, and obtain as many horses and cattle as possible. Our army may be in condition in autumn to again advance on Richmond.

The late Sir Robort Peel said, " I never knew a man to escape failures, either in body or mind, who worked seven days in a week." From the Edinburg Review, Jan. 1862. Review of Sewell's Ordeal of Free Labor in the British West Indies. (Continued.) The truth is this. Everything connected with emancipation exhibited crude notions and precipitate action. It was obviously expedient to elevate the mulattoes from a state of systematic degradation, as soon as slavery came to an end. But this might have been effected by elevating only those whose superior abilities and superior character qualified them for eleva...

The Fourth of July, 1803. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 4 July 1863
The Fourth of July, 1803. No anniversary of the nation's Independence, since 1116, has been fraught with so much Bigriificaacc to human freedom as the 81th, the one the nation is celebrating to-day. We say the nation, because we cannot recognize Jeff Davis and his confederates as being in an attitude that accords with the sentiments which the Declaration of Independence contains. We collate the following brief history from the Scholar's Manual, which may not be uninteresting to many of our readers : In the Congress of 1116 the great quesrion of American liberty came first to be discussed. On the Bth of May, Mr. Adams offered a resolution, tjiat the colonfes should adopt governments adequate to the wants of the country, and independent of Great Britain. The success of this resolution on the 15tli was considered as decisive of the question of allegiance to any foreign power. On the 11th of June, Richard Ilenry Lee, seconded by Mr. Adams, moved in Congress the evrtMnemorable resolution...

• CORRESPONDENCE. Camp Rabbit, June 24, 1863. Mr. Eiutor—Nothing of importance has transpired here since my last letter to you. I view with pride the organization of Company A, C. C. V. I hope they may be able to fill up the regiment here. If the business is conducted properly, there is no fear but that California can show a good front in the East. Also, lam glad that our Deople are not going to celebrate the Fourth by any outside display. I should be very happy to be in your city on that day, but as I am busy making preparations to go away, it is impossible. I have the honor of stating to you that I am the recipient of quite a position in the army at home, but I shall defer making the particulars public at present. I have not been with the cavalry so long for nothing, and hope soon to reap the reward of my labors. Respectfully yours, J. H D., JR. Placerville, June 30, 1863.

(Communications, For tbe Pacific Appeal. COLORED MEN OP CALIFORNIA NO 111. Abner H. Francis. In giving brief characteristic sketches of Colored Men of California, we shall not confine ourselves particularly to denizens of this State : we use California as a generic term, applying it to the entire Pacific coast. " The whole unbounded continent is ours." Whether residing in the British possessions, Oregon, or the adjacent Terrirories, they all made this State their first place of residence on the Pacific coast, hence we can with justice claim them all as Californians. Abner H. Francis is a native of New Jersey; he is now between 45 and 50 years age. His father, owning a small farm in Flemmington, N. Y., was enabled to give his sons the benefit of a good English education. After going through the rudimental branches taught in the common school in Flemiuington, he acquired a knowledge of Book Keeping and Mathematics in New York. He there learned the tailor's trade, and was for a short t...
