LEOTUHB [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 19 December 1863
LEOTUHB For the Pacific Appeal, j Deilvered iu Zion A. M. E. Chureb, Pacific street, on the subject of BRITISH EMANCIPATION. B\ S. HOWARD. Mr. President, Ladies aud Gentlemen — My object in bringing this subject before vou is, to give proof positive, not mere assertions, that immediate and unconditional Emancipation is the only true and dignified platform to stand upon; and that liberty and education elevates the negro, as well as it does the Caucasian, the Anglo-American, the Anglo-Dane, the Anglo-Norman, or Anglo-Saxon races. Our reason, our power to retain and acquire knowledge; our heaven erected face, onr habitudes, our hopes, our fears, our aspirations and our prophecies, plant between us and the brute creation a distinction as eternal as it is palpable. Before discussing the main object that has convened us together, I will beg leave of the audience to read the following resolutions: Resolved, That we, the colored citizens of California, have paramount reasons for thanking th...
Be in Earnest. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 19 December 1863
Be in Earnest. " Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might." said the wise ruan. " "Whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men." It is evident that the Lord is not pleased with dronish men in his vineyard. Such accomplish but little in anything. | lie who would overcome self, and secure a right to the " tree of life," must make up his mind to engage in a continued and earnest warfare. His will to do right | must he inflexible. Entreaties of friends, or frowns of foes, must be passed unheeded, while we keep the eye fixed on the prize with an unwavering energy in its pursuit. Without this, we can have but little hope of successes in any noble enterprise. It requires no firmness of principle to go with the popular throng, but much to face a frowning world. There is much truth in the following :— " The longer I live, the more I am cer-„ tain, that the great difference between men, between the feeble and the powerful, great and insignificant, is ener...
Every Day Religion. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 19 December 1863
Every Day Religion. There is not much solidity in a religion tliat will not stand the tost of every-day experience. " There are a good many pious people," says Douglas Jerrold, " who are as careful of their religion as of their best service of China, only using it for holiday occasions, for fear it should get clipped or flawed in working-day wear." I hat species of religion may do for a show, but there is little substance in it. It is too much of the gilt ginger-bread sort for the general service of mankind. It can do little good in the eye of one who judges us not by the exterior, but by the interior evidence of excellence. Religion, to be serviceable, must not only be substantial, but active. It must not be drowsy. It must be wide awake, vigilant and sturdy.—Review and Herald The Wife's Commandments.—A young lady upon entering the married state, laid down the following rules to be observed by her husband—if they were generally observed, they would contribute greatly to the happine...

£ctecti<ms. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 26 December 1863
£ctecti&lt;ms. A gossip writes from Saratoga : Mrs. Banks cannot be called a handsome woman, but she is " comely," dresses well, and has wit as keen as her husband's sword. Some stupid fool asked her what she would do if the General was killed. "Go and work for my living, as I did before I married him," was the ready reply of the lady. Parents and children attend the same colored primary schools in New Orleans.
Proclaim Liberty Throughout all the Laud. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 26 December 1863
Proclaim Liberty Throughout all the Laud. The Executive Committe of the American Anti-Slaverv Society congratulate its members and friends that, through the madness, rebellion, and secession of the South, avowed in behalf of its Heaven-ac-cursed and world-abhorred slave system— involving the country in a civil war of the hugest proportions and the most sanguinary character, which still continues its desolate work—the constitutional powers of the Federal government are now ample to decree the immediate and total abolition of slavery. They believe that, as a measure of national peace and unity, of humanity and justice, such a decree should be passed by the ensuing Congress at as early a period in the session as practicable—thus not only sustaining the Emancipation proclamation of President Lincoln of January Ist, 1863, but also effectually disposing of that remnant of the slave institution which wa3 exempted by the proclamation aforesaid, in such a manner as may seem most equitable an...
Congressional. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 26 December 1863
Congressional. Ashley, of Ohio, will soon introduce an important bill, providing 1 , in accordance with the suggestions of the President's Message and Proclamation, for the establishment of Provisional Governments over the districts of country in rebellion, and for authorizing loyal citizens in such districts tk organize State Governments. The bill or Mr Ashley confers on the President power to appoint, for every district in rebellion, Governor, who is to exercise the civil administlation until the State Government can be formed, and Senators and Representatives to Congress elected. Wherever the people desire the reorganization of the State Governments the Military Governor is to order an enrollment of the loyalelectors. As soon as the number of the latter will be equal to one-tenth of the votes q# the Presidential election in 1860, the Military Governor shall order the election (if a State Convention, which shall be authorized to form a State Government, prodded it be not repugnant...
A Child Martyr. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 26 December 1863
A Child Martyr. Early in the month of May a boy of some seven summers presented himself for admission to the Sundey school of the Church of the Mediator in New York. From the first Sunday he was the object of special interest on the part of both his pastor and teacher. Always punctual in his attendance, tidy in appearance and eager to learn, he soon won the affection of all his fellows in the infant class to he belonged. But though comely, he twas black. The prejudice which his color excited among those of meaner mould he quickly disarmed by his quiet, respectful, Christian manner. He was a child Christian. What more lovely is there on earth ? What more highly esteemed is there in heaven? Little did those who thus casually met hiin from Sunday to Sunday imagine the witness of suffering God had proposed to perfect in him 1 At the time of the lattt riot he was living with an aged grandmother and a widowed mother at No. —East Twenty-eighth street. On Wednesday morning of that fearful w...

(Communications. For the Pacifio Appeal. Steamer St. Louis, near Panama, \ Nov. 27, 18C3. ) Mr. Editor—ln fulfillment of my promise to you I now commence the first of a series of " Notes of Travel," and if my industry does not desert me, when 1 have more to employ me than at the present writing, you may expect to hear from me as often as I have anything to write about that will in anywise conduce to the interest of your readers. In leaving the dock at San Franeisco and bidding adieu (perhaps forever) to the many old, kind and generous friends who have added so much to life's joys during my residence among them, and as the old ship gradually widened the distance between them and her, until what had been individual living characters became a confused mass—then throwing the eye over the city, seeking out familiar localities, and looking possibly for the last time upon them, and straining the eye as we passed along the water-front, seeking in vain to find some friendly and familiar face...

ifoUgtapluc gcuy. The veteran regiments in the Army of ■ the Potomac are to have their bouuty money immediately. The first installment will amount to about oue hundred and fifty dollars per man. The number of men from the army of the Potomac re-enlisted for the war is over ten thousand. The sentimeut of Senators respecting the three hundred dollar exemption has wholly changed. r ihey will strike out the exemption claim, and not insert any amount in its place. The feeling is general that the army must be filled up and the war vigorously prosecuted to the end. Senator Wilson will soon introduce a bill for the enlistment of soldiers in the rebellious States. Persons so enlisting may enter any regiment ndw in the field from the loyal States they may select. The desire is to get them in the veteran regiments and at the same time open a large field from which the loyal States can draw troops. The fight between lleenau and King took place near f unbridge. King won in twenty# five rounds, o...
