I tended tny stens towards the Sabbath Sfchool. 1 grew interested in the cause, and why ? Because I loved the Sabbath School. I love little children. Nine months ago, I came to this city, to take charge of this church. I found here a Sabbath School, containing a few scattering children, without rules or regulations. I then thought that 1 would go to work, both heart and hand, to build a new foundation for this school, and I thank God that, through his assistance, he has enabled me to do so. The first step I took was to go around and gather up the children. •Secondly, I preached a sermon for the Sabbath School's ...

foe tnj* For the Pacific Appeal. Choose Ye This Day Whom Ye Will Serve, Is the caption of tliis remarkable poem, from the pen of Dr. O. W. Holmes. There is not one who is a lover of truth, justice and freedom—none who have taken "a moral view" of the war, as tending to produce a pure and really free republic, who wouldnot endorse the sentiments. In my opinion, he is one of the few who observe this conflict as a just retribution for the violation of moral and natural laws ; truly he is " sound on the question." See how he strikes to the hearts of those traitors and hurls the tyrant slaveholder from his throne, He wafts " the blood hounds' bay to the winds," and brings to ourauditory sense the shrieks of their victims. The doctor is ready to " strangle the monster as it struggles to birth." He shoots his conscience afllicting instrument into the brains of the Copperheads, who writhe, and dare not utter a groan in consequence of its moral pressure. I take Occasion to return thnnks to m...

£ Anything More, Sir.—" Can I show you anything 1 more to-day" asked the civil gentleman behind the counter, of his worthy customer. " Yes." was the reply. "Will you be good enough to show me the silk umbrella I left here three weeks ago ?" A French writer has said that " to dream gloriously, you must act gloriously while yon are awake, and to bring angels, down to converse with you in your sleep, you must labor in the cause of virtue during the day."
Fred. Douglass's Valedictory. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 3 October 1863
Fred. Douglass's Valedictory. My Respected Friends : I beg to state that my relation to you as Editor and publisher of a journal devoted to the cause of Emancipation is, for the present, ended. That journal which has continued, under one form and designation or another, during nearly sixteen years, covering a period remarkable for the intensity and fierceness of the moral struggle between slavery and freedom, will be discontinued from the date of this publication. In making this simple announcement, emotions are excited for which I shall not attempt to find words to give suitable expression. Although the result has been reached naturally, logically and necessarily, it is nevertheless excepted reluctantly and sadly. My relation to my readers has been in a high degree friendly, and in taking this formal leave of those readers at home and abroad, I feel that I am taking leave of true and tried friends. Great principles of justice and the most enduring sympathies known to the heart of m...

An Anti-Slavery Newspaper at Vickst't , . , b " r B\ Had it been predicted three years ago, that before the end of 1863, an out-and-out anti-slavery newspaper would be established in Vicksburg, the whole couniry would have laughed the prophet to scorn. And yet precisely this event is now almost as certain as, anything future can be. Mr. P. Montgomery, formealy editor of the Vicksburg Whig, but for a year past an exile from his home, has issued a prospectus for a weekly paper to be pnblisned in that place under the Maine of the Vicksburg Union, aud having the following objects : "Ist. To show to the South the won. derful *and miraculous effects produced throughout the North by the great moving cause of all their material grandeur and greatness—free labor. While the South has remained almost stationary, and her inexhaustible resources are comparatively untouched, the North, with a sterile soil and rigorous climate, has, by means of free labor, come to 'blossom iike the rose.'

The Ensuing First of January. THE PACIFIC APPEAL. SAN KHAN CISCO : SATURDAY, OCTOBER 3, 18G3. It is not too soon for us, as a people, to commence with due consideration the discussion of the questfon, How shall we celebrate the anniversary of American Emancipation of Slavery, as declared by the President's great Proclamation? Three months to come is not too much time for us to be looking around and viewing the ad juncts of this gratifyiag event, and seeing what material we have for oratary on such a celebration. Or, if we have no celebration, would a convention of delegates from different points in the State and of this coast generally, be necessary to express to the President and the people at large our high approbation of the Emancipation Proclamation and renewed zeal in support of the measures of the Government? Congress will be in session in December, and after the holidays all kinds of legiala" tive measures will be brought forward re" lating to us as a people. We must, then, s...

Communication's. For the Pacific Appeal. Portland, Sept. 23d, 1863. Mr. Editor : —Thinking a few lines from one in this locality might be agreeable to yon and perhaps to some of your readers, I thought I would devote a few leisure moments to the same ; but my main reason is to give you an account of a short journey I performed, not long since, on the Columbia river, in the beautiful little steamer Cowlitz, Capt. C . Soon after we left the wharf at Monticello, I went in the cabin, to read the morning paper. There was a number of gentlemen present, engaged in conversation on the war and the state of the country. They spoke of the cause of the war and its origin : but, to give a clearer illustration, I will designate the parties. Mr. 1' , a Copperhead, and an ex-member of the Legislature of Washington Territoryy, and Air. W., a staunch old Union man and a firm believer in the Administration. I continued to peruse my paper until Mr. P openly declared that there never was a class of negr...

Burnside was at Knoxvillo Sept. 24.— There are no signs of rebel movements there. The rebel Gen. Jones is close to the Virginia line. Part of Burnside's force has gone on an expepition into Southwestern Virginia. Important results are exported. There was a female bread riot at Mobile on the 4th. The Governor ordered the 11th Alabama to put down the disturbance, but they refused. The Mobile Cadets essayed if, but were forced to fly by the women. Peace was iinally restored.

Paroled Vieksburg prisoners at Mobile were suffering greatly, and declare that if ever they are forced into the field they will desert in the first battle. A Paris paper of the 13th believes itself eniitled to state that the Maritim...
