Our Churches on the War Subject. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 4 July 1863
Our Churches on the War Subject. From the Christian Refleotor. Sentiments of the Annual Conference of the A - M. E. Church, (Philadelphia district,) in relation to colored soldiers. PREAMBLE. Whereas, We have witnessed with the deepest interest, the self-sacrificing and heroic devotion of those men of color, our brethren, acquaintances and friends, who have left home and friends in answer to the call of the President of these United States, through Gov. Andrew of Massachusetts, and the military and civil authorities of the western and southern departments of the United States service ; and, Whereas, We believe it is fully understood by the American people and by the civilized world, that the freedom of the enslaved colored people of the South, and the desire to enjoy the right to equal suffrage, by the disfranchised colored people of the North, more than all other emoluments combined, have induced these people to enlist in the military service of the United States, in the face of al...
Conference of the African M.E. Church. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 4 July 1863
Conference of the African M.E. Church. The conference was in session last week in this city. The Rev. Mr. Jones, Chairman of the Committee, presented the preamble and resolutions on the state of the nation, which are spirited and patriotic, The Committee point with pride to the outspoken sentiment of various Conferences, and reiterate their unyielding devotion to the national flag and to the fortunes of the Federal Government in prosperity and adversity, in life and death; their confidence in the natianal Administration remains unimpaired ; they regret the seeming reluctance with which the great principles of justice, judgment and right are adopted by the nation, by reason of which it has failed to secure fully the aid of that Almighty Arm, which can only be enlisted in the interest of justice and right; they are, nevertheless, thankful to God for the slow but certain advancement of this whole nation toward that righteousness that exalteth a nation ; and they pray that its progress ...
The. First Colored Regiment Leaving Boston for the "War—Cheers of the White Polks. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 4 July 1863
The. First Colored Regiment Leaving Boston for the "War—Cheers of the White Polks. The Pioneer colored regiment of the Northern States, as the*s4th Massachusetts, left Boston one day last week for active service in the field. A gala day was made of the occasion of their departure, for everybody wanted to see what kind of a figure on parade these men of a despised race would make. The experiment seems to have been perfectly satisfactory, not only to the originators of the regiment, but to the infidels and the scoffers also, who had all along been predicting a ridiculous failure to Gov. Andrew's project. It has been determined to have a parade on the common, previous to which the regiment was marched through many of the principal streets of the city, during which their grave demeanor and soldierly bearing wore the theme of eulogium on all sides. " All along the route," says one account, " the sidewalks were crowded, and the windows and balconies were thronged. Men cheered and women wa...

Colorphobia in Canada. T«. n i i . i .t n In C hatham, Canada, lately, in the Court of Assize?, a negro was duly empaneled as a juryman, when, according to The Planet, the following proceedings took place : " Upon the case being called, Mr. Thomas Russell, rose in the jury box and said, that one of the jurors chosen was a colored man, and the eleven white men had agreed that they would not sit with him. He said this in behalf of the jury, but out of no contempt fur the court, b*t simply stated the faol, and begged to be relieved. " Judge Richards—l know no reason why you should not in the eye of the law act as jurymen, as you have been chosen. " Mr. Russell—We do not think he is intelligent enough to act. "Justice Richards—But the Jaw says he is, and that is sufficient. The law is the judge in this matter, not the jury. " Mr. Russell—Well, then, sir, I, must respectfully decline to sit as juryman with this colord man. " Justice Richards—Well, then, I shall fine you " Mr. Russell—And...

£cttftion$. The Contraband Question. —The solution of tlo national contraband puzzle seems to have fairly commenced.

Three hundred men, women and children, have already found homes there. A little patch of ground will be set apart exclusively for each family, and stands will be provided in the market for them to sell their produce.

Our Fourth of July Celebration. THE PACIFIC APPEAL. SAN FRANCISCO : SATURDAY, JULY 11, 1803. The celebration of the 4 th of July by our people in this city, is a feature in our career which we hope will be received by the entiie approbation of every colored American in the State ; and we also hope that, in future, similar demonstrations will be made in every locality where they are in sufficient numbers to warrant an organization. Let the new life of a new era in our history be manifested everywhere, and patriotic fervor of the highest and best type be cultivated, far and near, by our coternporaries of African lineage, showing how wisely we can appreciate the just action of a magnanimous people and a beneficent government. \\ e aie aware that prejudice and proscription still exist .to a great extent, but we can and must overcome these real or supposed barriers by our integrity and moral deportment.

Communication*. For the Pacific Appeal. " Esq." " And if wo cannot alter things, 13y ***, we '11 change their names, sir." Old Song. " * * * a rose By any other name will smell as sweet." William Shakspeare, Esq. " Call mo pet names."—Somebody Else. The injudicious use of titles by Americans is justly a subject of ridicule by foreigners, as anti-republican and imitating the distinctions of aristocratic communities. hen no other honorary title can bo used we are fond of affixing " Esq " to every man's name, which, instead of adding dignity, only renders the individual ridiculous. Esquire is a distinctive title or appellation, particularly applicable to persons holding civil office. In Great Britan it formerly denoted a military rank under that of baron ; now it is likewise used to designate a gentleman of landed estate. In the United States it is applied (according to the whim of the writer) to the Governor of a State or a street sweeper. The Aiirjlo-African revels in the use of Esqu...
Ipitfst ?elcpi|)hic [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 11 July 1863
Ipitfst ?elcpi|)hic Gen. Hancock is regarded as the hero of Friday's battle. His corps lost heavily and fought nobiy. When the General fell, severely wounded, the effect on his men was to give them renewed determination to conquer ; and when it was learned that the wounded commander was still watching them and directing their movements, they fought like demons. A Washington special despatch says, it is estimated at the Surgeon General's office, that our wounded at Gettysburg number 12,000. Nearly 5,000 rebels wounded remain in our possession. We have 23 Colonels, and hosts of inferior rank prisoners. The rebels lost 13 General officers, and they estimate their loss at 30,000. We have about 12,000 prisoners, exclusive of wounded. _ Harrisbero, July Bth.—Telegrams received to-day, via London and Bedford, show that Lee is between South Mountain and Hagerstown, and will select a place between Hagerstown and the Potomac to g'ive Meade battle, as it is considered impossible for him to rea...
