gtlutmw. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 2 January 1864
gtlutmw. A good anecdote is told of one of the Connecticut boys. While in conversation with a rebel, after the capture of Fort Pulaski, the latter said : "At least, with all our faults, we have never made wooden nutmegs." The Yankee, a very demure-looking specimen, innocently replied : " We do not make them of wood any longer," and pointin"- to one of the big projectiles lying near, which had breached the fort, "we make them now of iron.'' The following extracts arc from an ad dress for the celebration, sent us last week for publication, which want of time and space then prevented us from publishing. For the Pacific Appeal. An Address for the Celebration. Friends and Fellow Citizens: On this day, one year ago, the Ist of January, 1863, no less than 4,000,000 slaves were released from their bondage, stripped of their chaius, emancipated and set free, by the President's Proclamation. Pacts have come to your knowledge which induce you to believe that the President will yet bo fully vin...
Throe Questions Answered by Henry Ward Beecher. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 2 January 1864
Throe Questions Answered by Henry Ward Beecher. I am told there are three questions which have been addressed to me through a Manchester paper, which have never got a straightforward answer, and I will endeavor to show you what a straightforward answer is. The first question is, "Do colored persons ever attend your church in Broooklyn?" Yes, by scores and hundreds. Second, "If so, where do they Bit?" Wherever they can get a seat. Our church will hold but 3,000, and it is extremely difficult for any one to get a seat. I have said humorously, in expostulating with our people, who are sometimes impatient of having so little use of their pews, for which they pay an inordinate rent, Gentlemen, you know very well, when you rent pews here, you pay $300 for a pew for the sake of sitting in the aisle, and you knew it when you_ bought your pew. It is expressly stipula" ted that if a man is not in his pew to do fend it within a certain number of minutes he forfeits his right, and we have from ...
The New Year. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 2 January 1864
The New Year. THE PACIFIC APPEAL. SAN FRAN CISCO: SATURDAY, JANUARY 2, 1804. 1864 has entered upon us, and all should be thankful as well as joyous for the manifold blessings bestowed by our Maker the past year. The first day of the New Year was religiously celebrated, at midnight, at the A. M. E. Church, Powell St., and also at the Zion Church, Pacific st. Discourses commenced about 9 o'clock in the evening, and continued, with intervals of prayer, by the respective congregations till 12 o'clock, at which time the Powell St. Church had their bell rang till over 15 minutes past 12. Mr. Ward then ordered the congregation to assemble on the extreme right and left aisles of the church, he leading them several times around, in order, singing one or two sacred odes to liberty. After which he ordered those of the members and friends of the Church, who had promised to pay, on New Year's eve, ten dollars—a piece towards the liquidation of its debt, to come forward and give their money and n...
Communications. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 2 January 1864
Communications. For the Pacific Appeal. Our ProsDects. Mr Epitor.—The great change in public opinion in regard to the colored race, induces me to say something as to what I consider the duties of heads of families, and also what I consider a great fault on the part of most colored people ; and I will commence by asking this question, How can you ever expect to occupy any other position, than tliat of menials, if you educate your children for no other ? why do you not give your boys, and girls trades ? Something that will make them independent of the whitewash brush and slop bucket ? Do this, and you have made one step in advance. I can point out a dozen who have good trades, such as carpenters, blacksmiths, painters, &amp;c., &amp;c., and yet I have never known them to do a day's work at their trades ; and when I have asked them the reason, have been met with the answer of, Oh ! nobody will employ us because we are colored. Is not that rcdiculoas ? If people will emp...

Selections. For the Pacific Appeal. ORATION Delivered by Wm. H. Hall, January 1st, 1864, on the occasion of the Emancipation Celebration, at Platt s Hall, Montgomery Street, San Francisco. Mr. President, Ladies and Gentlemen, Friends and Citizens: The age in which we live is the most extraordinary in the annals of the world ; human knowledge and expanded thought are unequalled in perfection, while the development of mind has scarcely a limit to its wonderful results—the infant of the hour and the child of a day seem pregnant with ideas and impressions worthy of niaturer years : and there is no longer a measure to the serene innocence of youth, nor a calculation of the varied phases man may be summoned to pass through before the decade of life ; every being has a marked vocation, every tongue a living utility, and every language a wide sphere of action, until the accumulations of science and learning shall exercise a beneficent sway in redeeming and elevating the countless millions o...
Our Candidate for the Presidency. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 9 January 1864
Our Candidate for the Presidency. THE PACIFIC APPEAL. SAN FRANCISCO: SATURDAY, JANUARY 9, 1864. The nomination of Mr. Lincoln by acclamation, at the celebration held on January Ist, at Piatt's Music Hall, on Montgomery st., in commemoration of the Emancipation Proclamation issued by President Lincoln, Jan. 1,1863, was a tribute of respect and the high appreciation felt by the colored citizens of San Francisco for him. They were made happy in this opportunity to bestow a humble mark of their approbation. He is the man who, of all others who have occupied the Presidential chair, since the formation of the Government or the adoption of the Constitution, has stood up in defiance of the slave-power, and dared officially to maintain the doctrine, by Jiis official actions, that we are citizens, though of African descent —that the army and navy shall protect and defend such citizens in common with all others—that provision ought to be made for the education of freedmen—that he will not with...
