Jfotortums. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 24 May 1862
Jfotortums. From the Goldeo Era. Development as Distinctive of Baces. To a philosohpic mind, the affirmative might arise of a possible limit to human progression. Some of the most prominent races seem to have reached the apex of advancement, and to be stationary, or on the retrograde. The Mongolian race affords a striking example of inert civilization, if not of actual decay. For hundreds of years their arts and sciences have stood where they are to-day. They have eeased to originate, and therefore to expand—to wax in knowledge, either practical or imaginative—and hence they have ceased to advance. The Caucasian race, in some of its gcneological branches, seems also to have approximated to the perfect ripeness that precedes loss of flavor and cessation of growth. Some of the old nations of Europe, that were once the upper and most vigorous of civilization, have ceased to throw out new shoots, as though the sap of enterprise had been withdrawn to new channels, or had developed them t...
Debates in the Seoret Session of the Constitutional Convention in 1787. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 24 May 1862
Debates in the Seoret Session of the Constitutional Convention in 1787. We recently, says the Call, came across a copy of the debates in the Secret Session of the Constitutional Convention, held in Piladelphia in 1187. By resolution, the debates were to be held secret by the members, never to be divulged. This resolution is sufficient evidence that the country' was greatly excited on the question discussed, and that it was feared untoward results might follow a public revelation of the debates. The badge of secrecy was religiously kept for, several years, when Lumber Martin, of Maryland, in explaining to his constituents certain matters connected with the formation of the Constitution, divulged a portion of the secret session.— It seems that James Madison, afterwards President of the United States, kept extensive notes of the debates, as did also Mr. Yates. In 1818, for the first time, they were compiled and given to the public under the sanction and authority of the gentlemen named...
War of 1812. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 24 May 1862
War of 1812. From an article in the New York Historical Collections, prepared by William Jay, Esq., mostly from official sources, it appears the whole number of Americans killed and wounded during the war of 1812, extending from June, 1812, to March, 1815, was 7738; of these, 2816 were of the number killed ; this includes both the naval and land forces. The largest number in the naval forces were at the engagement between the Chesapeake and Shannon, where the number of Americans killed and wounded was 145, and the British 85. At the battle of New Orleans there were 52 Americans and 2074 Brit ish killed and wouuded. The Americans appear to have suffered more at the battle of Bridgewater, where they had 743. killed and wounded, and the British 643. In the various skirmishes among the Indans, the Americans had over 1100 killed and wounded. In the engagement between the Constitution and Java, the Americans had 34 and the British &gt;61 killed and wounded. During the wholewar the...

An active, intelligent man can make good wages. Apply at this office. We have again glorious news from the East. Not only are the Armies of the Republic " marching on" to victory, but with them, the Slaves are "marching on" to Freedom. In our first number, sth of April, not two months sincc, we said, " The Government have not, aft yet, declared that with the termination of this war must come the termination of Slavery, but to this conclusion must they come at last." We were not alone in this opinion ; it was the general opinion of all liberal-minded men, throughout the country. In us, as in many others, " the wish was father to' the thought," but all knew that Peace and Slavery could no longer exist together : all felt that the irresistible conflict between Freedom and Slavery, which has b...
dommunifatums. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 24 May 1862
dommunifatums. For the Pacific Appeal. Jim Crow Exhibitions and Negro Extravaganzas, Mb. Editor — I have been patiently and hopefully waiting for some individual among your numerous contributors to take up the subject to which we now invite attention, who was adequate to the task of treating it in such a manner, as to give force and effect without being offensive. And yet, I am not sure that it is really best to be very choice in the use of either words or means in the exposition or treatment of a moral ulcer. Antidotes are seldom pleasant or palatable therefore when an evil is to be averted, perhaps, the shortest and surest method should be employed, without any reference to their offensiveness. The subject of ridicule is one that should concern the colored people generally, put more especially, just now, in consequence of the phase it has recently assumed in the State. Those Jim Crow Exhibitions and Negro Extravaganzas, for which Americans are so notorious; together with all their...
piscrilaiwous. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 24 May 1862
piscrilaiwous. McClellan's Wife Distributing Tracts.— The New York correspondent of the Bulletin is responsible for the following : The Washington Chronicle relates a fact concerning the wife of the commanding General which is looked upon in Washington political circles as possessing much significance. It is said that the wife of Gen McClellan is engaged in circulating the books and tracts of the Boston Tract Society among the soldiers—writing her name in each book. As the Boston Society is known as the anti-slavery organization, in contradistinction to the New York Tract Society, the ecclesiastics will consider this a significant item of news. The reason why Mrs. McClellan distributes the tracts of the Boston Anti-Slavery Tract Society, instead of those of its rival society in this city, is doubtless owing solely to the fact that the Boston organization has got the start of the other in the matter of furnishing her with their publications. i • » i i ■■ Largest Printing Press in the...

Poetry. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 24 May 1862
Poetry. For the Pacific Appeal. What Shall We Do with the Contrabands ? Shall we arm them ? Yes, arm them! give to each man A rifle, a musket, a cutlass or sword ; Then on to the charge ! let them war in the van, Where each may confront with his merciless lord, And purge from their race, in the eyes of the brave, The stigma and scorn now attending the slave. I would not have the wrath of the rebels to cease, Their hope to grow weak nor their courage to wane, Till the Contrabands join in securing a peace, Whose glory shall vanish the last galling chain, And win for their race an undying respect In the land of their prayers, their tears and neglect. Is the war one for Freedom ? Then why, tell me why, Should the wronged and oppressed be debarred from the fight ? Does not reason suggest, it were noble to die In the act of supplanting a wrong for the right ? Then lead to the charge 1 for tho end is not far, When the Contraband host are enrolled in the war. J. M. B.

JfrUrtiims. Slave-Hunting in the South. A clergyman in the South tells the fol" towing story: " The hunter was out once with another man, when, after a long search, they found the dogs barking up a large cottonwood tree. They examined the tree closely without discovcriug the negro, and concluded that the dogs must have been foiled, and were about to go away, when Mr. from some distance off, thought he aaw a negro's leg very high up in the tree, where the leaves and moss were thick enough to hide a man lying on the top of a limb, with his feet against the trunk. He called out as if he really saw a man, telling him to come down, but nothing stirred. He sent for an ax and called out again, saying he would cut the tree to the ground if he did not come down. There was no reply. Ho then cut half through the tree on oue side, and was beginning on the other, when the negro hallowed out that if he would stop be would come down. He stopped cutting and the man descended to the lowest limb, whi...
