Communications.' For the Pacific Appeal. Slavery in the Church. Mr. Editor:—You know how much has been said and written about the hightoned morality and piety of the self-styled chivalry of the South. In relating the following, as characteristic of these devoted christians, a few evenings since, to a friend, he requested me to write it out and send it to you for publication in the Appeal. The facts, as stated were told to me, in 1840, by a member of the church spoken of; I took pains to enquire of others, living in .the neighborhood, and found his story literally true. There are several persons at this time in San Francisco, from Southern Virginia, who are perfectly familiar with the facts. In the year 1825, a widow lady, residing in Prince Edward county, Virginia, died possessed of a large property, including many slaves. In her will she donated to the Presbyterian Church, at or near Prince Edward Court House, and of which she was a member, a family of seven, consisting of a man an...

As for the latter, an Annapolis resident says, " the niggers are clear carried away with it."
J&tortumis. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 10 May 1862
J&amp;tortumis. From the New York Anti-Slavery Standard. Bancroft on Taney. George Bancroft, in his oration delivered in this city on the recent anniversary of the birthday of Washington, pronounced judgment upon Judge Taney in terms to which every friend of justice and freedom will heartily respond. These are his words : "But at last 'we have fallen on evil days., 'The propitious smiles of Heaven'— such are the words of Washington—'can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right.' Duriug eleven years of perverse government those rules were disregarded, and it came to p ass that men who should firmly avow the sentiments of Washington and Jefferson and Franklin and Chancellor Livingston were disfranchised for the public service ; that the spotless Chief Justice whom YVashington placed at the head of our Supreme Court could by no possibility have been nominated for that office, or confirmed. Nay, the corrupt influence invaded -even the ve...
" Confiscation." [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 10 May 1862
" Confiscation." Supposing the Civil War ended, treason utterly crushed, and the Union fully restored, a very serious and practical question next arises—" Who shall pay the fiddler ?" Shall the State of New York and New England, the North and the West bd&gt; heavily taxed for generations, because South Carolina and her slaveholding sisters saw fit to defy and seek to destroy the Republic? The question is by no means free from difficulties. We do not pretend to decide it, except in so far as we i'eel confident that the loyal States ought not to pay more than a fair and equal proportionof the taxes rendered necessary by Southern treason and rebellion. We do not urge a vindictive or sweeping confiscation of Rebel property in case the Union should be fully triumphant. If Slavery—the great first cause of the Rebellion—shall only perish amid the ruins, we will cheerfully forego confiscation, consent to be taxed invidiously, and let the Rebel States bear by much the lighter burthen...

Poetry. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 10 May 1862
Poetry. For the Pacific Appeal. TO ANNIE. ABk me not if I love thee ; A glancc would declare, Though the words were not spoken, The flame that was there. My spirit would seek thee, Though severed apart, And speak its own language Direct to thy heart. Ask mc not why J love thee : Why murmur the trees, When their foliage is kissed By the evening breeze ? As the stream from the mountain E'er tends to the sea, * So my heart's devotion Flows only to thee. Blame me not that I love thee : Nay, rather forgive ; In the light of thy beauty Permit me to live, A kind word or token Thou surely canst spare, To one whom thy coldness Would plunge in despair. J. G. C.

jScUrtums. How Washington beoame the Capital. During the Revolution the Continental Congress sat for the jnost part at Philadelphia, although it Was compelled by the movements of the British army to vacate that city, and to pass through a migratory career at Baltimore, Lancaster, York, Annapolis, Princeton, Trenton and New York. The Federal Government, under the present Constitution, was inaugurated at New York in 1789. At the first session, which commenced immediately, petitions came in from various town and state governments in regard to the permanent location of the seat of Government. The Eastern States and New York were opposed to the premature agitation of the question when there were other measures which their representatives considered of greater national importance, demanding immediate attention. Among these important matters was the proposition to assume the debts of the States by the Federal Government a measure in which the New England States were doubly'interested. firs...
A Slave Legaoy to the American People. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 17 May 1862
A Slave Legaoy to the American People. Some years ago an aged African, who had been set free, spent some months in New York, while waiting for a vessel in which he was to return to his native country. He had.been educated for a teacher in the kingdom of Footah, and kept school for about 20 years, when, during a visit to the sea-coast, to purchase paper for the use of his pupils, he was treacherously seized, brought to the United States and sold as a slave. He bore a high character from his late master, who gave him his freedom when past 70. During his stay in New York one of her citizens finding him intelligent, conscientious, and ready to commynicate, questioned him concerning his country, and became so much interested in the accounts which he gave, that he held long and frequent interviews with him, and drew from him a great amount of information on the manners, customs, history, arts, learning, &amp;c., of the Fulahs, Seracoolies, Mandingoes, Jalunkas, and other people of...
