Hatred to the Blacks. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 31 October 1863
Hatred to the Blacks. There is something fiendish in the malice wherewith the Copperhead press pursues the unhappy negro. So long as he was a slave it was all right with him ; he was doing his appointed work for his task-mater, and this was his destiny, and all that ho was good for. But no sooner does the law pronounce him to be free, and possessed of the rights of a man, than he is assailed with the coarsest and most brutal language which a bad heart can dicate from the vocabulary of the lowest thieves and loafers that infest society. He is treated and denounced as .a criminal, compared with whom a murderer is a saint, and to hear them talk, one would imagine that poor Sambo must really be as black in disposition as he is in the color of his skin. But so far as we can learn, he has done nothing to justify the abuse which has been heaped upon him. He is quite as good, and well behaved as we could expect any man to bo whose whole previous life had been warped and poisoned by wrong an...
Equitable Laws, or the Practical Ke3ult of Legislating on the Principle of " The Greatest Good of the Greatest Number." [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 31 October 1863
Equitable Laws, or the Practical Ke3ult of Legislating on the Principle of " The Greatest Good of the Greatest Number." THE PACIFIC APPEAL. SAN Fit AN CISCO ; SATURDAY, OCTOBER 31, 1863. This truly democratic phrase has never been more truly demonstrated in public policy than by the legislation of the last Congress. Measures were inaugurated upon the principle of " the greatest good of the greatest number," and kindred theories which had been agitated by an intelligent and able minority, of which John Quincy Adams was the leader in Congress, and we may say of the nation at large, for many years immediately preceding his death. It was shown by his advocacy, at one time, of the right of petition in Congress, for which he was threatened with expulsion. Those of the Calhoun school professedly held it as a cardinal political principle, assumed as virtually belonging to their (the Democratic) party,and that they would, while in power, administer that pow. ei for " the greatest good of the...

tfomimmiratums. For the Pacific Appeal. Notes of a Trip to Victoria. NO. I. Having long had a desire to visit Victoria and Portland, and the season being favorable, I availed myself of the offer of a free passage, made by my friend, Mr. R. Daulton, steward of the steamer brother Jonathan, which left San Francisco 2?th August. 1 have ever had a morbid anxiety to experience the sensation of sea-sickness, and lam always disappointed. The weather was provokingly calm ; the staunch ship glided smoothly over the waters, and the motion of the waves was scarce sufficient to disturb my equilibrium : I felt no more inconvenience than if only crossing the Bay. My companion du voyage, John Jones, who occupied the opposite berth, was charmingly sick, the whole passage to Portland. I really envied him, and wished I could partake of a portion of his suffering, but not the slightest part would come to my share. We crossed the bar of Columbia river on Sunday afternoon, 30tfi Aug., and then poor Jone...

s Wm. Lloyd Garrison spoke at Lyceum Hall. Milford, on Sunday, the 20th ult., on national subjects. The very candid, impartial and concise manner, in which he treated the subject under discussion was commended' by all loyal men who heard him. It must be very gratifying to Mr. Garrison, who has spent a life-time in combating public opinion with reference to an evil in our social system, to find himself all at once in perfect sympathy with the great mass of society. —Milford, (Mass.) Journal. Phil. T. Herbert, once a member of Congress from California, has been elected from Texas to the rebel Congress
Conditions, Views, and the Prospects of the People of Color in the United States. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 7 November 1863
Conditions, Views, and the Prospects of the People of Color in the United States. Amid the multiplying thoughts of the hour, a respectable clergyman in one of the border States some months ago, published an article in the Presbyterian Quarterly Review, commending the President for his great act of emancipation, contending that " this, like many other of the acts of this truly great man, was wonderfully timely put forth at the moment the fullness of time—not too soon—and not too late; that the President had by this act lifted the the moral senee of the nation to a position to which years could not otherwise have brought it, that freedom is the American watchword —freedom for all men." Taking it for granted, then that slavery in this country will sooner or later pass away, the writer proceeds to inquire, " What shall be the future condition of the colored race in this land?" The plan of Colonization as suggested by the President, he regards as inadequate to meet the necessities of the...

After alluding to the opening of Liberia College, and the efforts being made to increase the efficiency of the schools for the instruction of the Congoes, the letter adds : " I may not dismiss the case of the Congoes, without adding that ...

An Excursion Trip on the San Jose Railroad. THE PACIFIC APPEAL. SAN FRANCISCO : SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 1863. We received a free ticket last week, from Mr. A. H. Housten, Supreintendent of the San Francisco and San Jose Railroad Co., to go and return on any of the excursion trains, which were running on Sunday last to Menlo Park, and the junction of the road to Mayfield. At 8 o'clock a. m. we took the Mission cars to the " Willows;" the walk was half a mile or more before reaching the present temporary depot. We were in time, to the minute, of half-past eight, when the excursionists were an nounced to leave the depot in consequence of the great crowd, a few minutes delay was occasioned by the purchase of tickets, by those who had come from the mission train. During this delay, the locomotive went a short distance and brought an extra passenger car. All now being arranged, the crowds of men, women and children, who were about the depot and ticket office, soon filled the way train of ca...
