pbttHantottS. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 3 October 1863
pbttHantottS. How Emancipation Works. The harm produced by emancipation is reduced to tho incontestable ruin of a certain number of colonies, and the momentary and inevitable suffering of all. It is worthy of note that tho colony which resisted mosti Jamaica, suffered most. The colony which most promptly resigned itself, and made efforts to renew the methods, stock, and personnel of manufacture—Mauritius—scarcely suffered at all, and its wealth is to-day doubled, nearly tribled. The aggregate production of the other colonies has again reached the amount prior to 1834 There is no doubt that it would have surpassed it if the commercial reform hid not complicated the result of the abolition of slavery. But while according to these evils the regret which they deserve, how compare them for an instant with the blessings which date from these two great measures for England, for the colonies themselves, and for humanity ? Nearly a million of men, women and children have passed from the cond...

* ; Persons who are always innocently goodhumored and cheerful, are very useful in the world. They not only maintain peace and happiness, but spread a glow of sunshine among those with whom they associate. If you must form harsh judgments, form them of yourself, not of others ; and in general begin by attending to your own deficiencies "first. If every one would sweep up his own walk, we should have very clean streets.
Shall Negro Soldiers be Exchengkd ? [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 10 October 1863
Shall Negro Soldiers be Exchengkd ? In tracing the history of the rebellion one cannot fail to observe that almost every measure of importance adopted by the Administration in reference to slavery, was forced upon it by the South. The President, already sufficiently embarassed,would only have been too glad to leave it to its face. The months of actual hostilities which elapsed before slaves were recognized as contraband of war, the slow and reluctant steps with which the Administration advanced toward its present position in regard to slavery, attest the sincerity of the President's desire to avoid all unnecessary measures of irritation. But the South was not, and in fact could not be, equally considerate. To her, slavery numolested was a mighty power —the administration was forced to take measures to weaken it.— Not to do so would have been treason to the country. The President is entitled to eternal gratitude for the glorious decree of ernancipatiou ; yet it is not to be denied th...
A Chapter in Human Nature. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 10 October 1863
A Chapter in Human Nature. At a point on this side of the mountains in Pennsylvania, where occurred the transhipment of passengers from the West, was moored a canal boat, waiting for the arrival of the train before starting on its way " through" to the East. The captain of the boat—a tall, sun-burnt, rough and sometimes profane man, stood by his craft, superintending the labors of his men when the cars came in, and a few minutes after, a party of half a dozen gentlemen came along and deliberately walked up to the captain, and thus addressed him: Sir, we go to the East, but our passage to-day depends mainly on you. In the cars we have just left is a sick man, whose presence is disagreeable. We have been appointed a committee by the passengers to ask that you deny this man a passage on your boat. If he goes, we remain. What do you say 1" By this time the others had come from the cars. " Gentlemen," said the captain, " I have heard the passengers through your committee. Has the sick ma...
Weight of the Earth. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 10 October 1863
Weight of the Earth. A writer in the Edinburg Review, says : •' Copernicus first distinctly demonstrated that the apparent terrestrial plain was really a free and independent material mass, moving in a definable path through space. Then Newton explained that this independent mass moved through the space because it was substantial and heavy, and because it was unsupportable by props and chains ; that, in fact, as a massive body, it is falling ever through the void ; but that as it falls, it sweeps round the sun in a never-ending circuit, attracted towards it by magnet-like energy, but kept off from it by the force of its centrifugal movement. Next, Shell and Picard measured the dimensions of the falling and heavy masses, and found that it was a spherical body, with a girdle of 25,000 miles. Subsequently to this, Baily contrived a pair of scales that enabled him approximately to weigh the vast sphere ; and he ascertained that it had somewhere within itself about 1,256,195,680,000,000,...
Our Assumed Literary Apathy. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 10 October 1863
Our Assumed Literary Apathy. THE PACIFIC APPEAL. SAN Fit AN CISCO : SATURDAY, OCTOBER 10, 1803. Wm. Wells Brown, in a reply, which appeared in the Anglo-African of Sept. 3, to Wm. H. Yates's criticism on his book called " The Black Man, his Antecedents, Genius and Achievementsintimates that we, as a people, do not properly appreciate each other's literary efforts, and that we never acknowledge a superiority of literary attainments, however meritorious, until they are acknowledged and approved by white persons of taste and talent. Are these assumptions well founded ? Let us examine critically what Mr. Brown so flippantly states. lie has for a long time been and is at present an anti-slavery lecturer and a passable writer, and claims to have acquired a vast amount of experience among the colored people in the different States, and it is to be presumed that what he says on this subject must be entitled to some weight as an opinion. We herewith quote one passage, which is as follows : N...

Elliot, (silver City, N. T. From the Philadelphia Christian Recorder. San Francisco, July 31, 18(53. Rev. and Dear Friend :—1 embrace the opportunito of sending a line or two by the kindness of my old friend, Mr. Anthony Osborn. 1 have written to the editor and bishops frequently, but receiving no reply, I have decided to make another effort, with what success it remains for the future to develop. 1 have worked hard since my return to the Pacific States, 15 months ago, with a depleted treasury, 40 members, and a congregation ot less than 200. 1 entered upon the work of buying the Powell st. Church, at a cost of $5500. Nine weeks alter the purchase, I was seized by that most violent ol all diseases, the small pox. Nothing but God's power saved me from a gaping grave. For many weeks 1 stood within the ver...

Cmumuniatumjssi. For the Pacific Appeal. Sax Jose, Oct. 6, 1863. Mr. Editor—Having obtained from your agent the list of subscribers and their accounts, 1 have, for the past two days, been making an effort towards collecting the amounts due you, and to extend the circulation of the paper. Among the names you will find several with the direction Watsonville ; for these you are indebted to Mr. Geo. W. Smith, a brother of your former agent, who is now residing in Watsonville. And 1 will remark, en passent, that there are several families of our people in that section who seem prosperous, and they have a promise from the school directors of that section that they will provide a school for their children. Thus we see, in almost every direction, the buds of promise, indicating a bright and glorious future for us. Our city is, at present, barren of anything that could give interest to you or your readers. Last week's Mercury contained a highly colored account of the arrest by Mr. Menifield,...
|lat«t lekgrapUic $cut?. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 10 October 1863
|lat«t lekgrapUic $cut?. The headquarters of Gen. Gdmore have been removed from Morris Island to Folly ' Island. The continned sinking of the beach J on Morris Island rendered the removal of the headquarters necessary. The removal of the main body of the troops were measures of convenience, while there are sani- ' tary reasons, which would ultimately be ' controlling motives. It is said that there ' are other causes for ihe change, among them that the troops will not be less avail- | able in future operations against Charleston, while under the change they are entire- ( ly out of range of any of the batteries the j rebels have or can erect on James Island. The recent firing from Gilmore's batteries, was directed almost exclusively against efforts that were making to erect new bat- j teries on the ruins of Fort Sumter. The rapid heavy firing of our guns, it is expected, will hot only stop this work, but render the further rebel occupation of Sum- ' ter precarious, if not impossible. ...
SftUwUaucous. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 10 October 1863
SftUwUaucous. The Queen of England Probably Crazy.— A letter says : There is some anxiety manifested respecting the health of the Queen. The precaution taken to protect her from public observation are of a very singular character. For example, on her embarkation to Wool which for the continent, every place which would afford a peep was boarded up, and even the windows of the government workshops were white-washed, to prevent the workmen from looking at her. The officers were excluded—all but a few confidential policemen. If her Majesty should abdicate, there would be little surprise. The Prince of Wales is popular only as Prince of Wales. Prince Alfred is the popular favorite. The morbid sorrow of the Queen throws a damp over English society. Yancey.—The mother of the late Senator Yancy married for her second husband Rev. Nathaniel S. Beman, who then occupied a pulpit in Alabama. Dr. Beman took the mother and son to Troy, educated the latter, but had much trouble from his ungovernab...
