Communications. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 9 January 1864
Communications. For the Pacific Appeal. Placervii-le, Idaho Territory,) December 6th, 1863. J Mr. Editor —I promised you, when leaving the Bay City, to write you a few lines on reaching my destination. I presume that, from the many months that have elapsed since making that pledge—you have long since come to the conclusion that it Was made witli no intention of being redeemed; but " better late than never" is an old adage, which sometimes reconciles us to delays and disappointments. To recount to you all the details of my travel and sojnurnings since leaving you, whilst they might be interesting in the abstract, would be tedious and prolix in the concrete. My trip to Florence, last spring, is replete with incidents of a startling and amazing nature. Florence is a place never destined by nature for the habitation of man, being nine or ten thousand feet above the level of the sea. The atmosphere is exceedingly light, and cannot retain its specific gravity. Nothing flourishes there in ...

§S#twt tdegraphif It is intimated that the city of Charleston is mined with powder by the rebels. The Freedman's celebration of the anniversary of the President's Emancipation Proclamation, took place at Cooper Institute, New York. Addresses were made by the Revs. Drs. Bellews, Cheever and others, and letters from Gov. Andrew, Chas Sumner and others, read. The principal portion of the audience were colored. The special to the Times says our Government will not permit Gen. Butler to be outlawed by Benjamin, and the exchange of prisoner committed to him will be left in his hands. Secretary Stanton has enlarged Gen. Butler's powers, by putting all the rebel prisoners in the United States under bis care. There will be thirty thousand at Point Lookout within three weeks. The policy is resolutely insisted on, that all exchanges shall take place through General Butler, and none except through him.

The Third Decade Meeting. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 16 January 1864
The Third Decade Meeting. This memorable convention assembled in Philadelphia oil Thursday and Friday of last week, to colebrate the thirtieth anniversary of the American Anti-Slavery Society. The occasion, as was anticipated, proved one of rare interest. It was national rather than local. Not only from Pennsylvania but from neighboring and from distant States came the veterans of thirty years' warfare to rejoice in the progress of the past and to take counsel together for the future. For this season of the year, the weather was singularly auspicious, and the elements, which for a quarter of a century have seemed to league themselves with the slave power to battle anti-slavery meetings and lecturers, as if convinced at last that further effort to retard this omnipotent cause is useless, fell in with the conquered public opinion and extended a genial welcome. Concert Hall on Chesnut Street, large and commodious, was the place of meetiug. Those who were privileged to be present will n...
The Dixie Slaveholders and the Cotton Dearth. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 16 January 1864
The Dixie Slaveholders and the Cotton Dearth. This misguided class of men, rebels alike to common bcuso and good government, liave always been conspiring a dearth of cotton as well as the death of republicanism. Their gamo is and always was to monopolize the world's cotton land lest free labor, getting hold of some of it, with the aid of machinery should make cotton too cheap, and thur destroy their barbarous power and glory. The cotton region which has been go monopolized and abused by slavery, is capable of producing vastly more both of cotton and corn than it ever has done. The majority of its population is of course loyal. But it is more profitable just now in the army than in the cotton field. In the progress of the war this cotton land is coming into the possession of the federal government. What shall be done with it ? Our answer is, have it plowed by the best machinery driven by steam, and attended by free labor. Steam cultivation is yet experimental, it is true, in this cou...
The Whole North Abolitionized. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 16 January 1864
The Whole North Abolitionized. THE PACIFIC APPEAL. SAN FRANCISCO : SATURDAY, JANUARY 16, 1864. The Legislature of every State which has assembled this winter, the Border States included, (with, perhaps, the excep. tion of Kentucky,) has given an unqualified expression in favor of the abolition of slavery. The most radical bills have been introduced in Congress by Stevens of Pennsylvania and Lane of Kansas. The former advocates the entire prohibition by Congress of slavery in the rebellious States, as a condition of resuming their proper status in the Union. The latter (Mr. Lane) advocates the setting apart of a portion of Texas for persons of African descent, and that they may have tho right of the homestead law, &amp;c. Of this latter bill we cannot speak advisedly, until we are in possession of its details. But we might venture a speculative view, at this time, in stating that, if it means that the colored people will be given a Territory to govern, which will bo hereafter...

ilaUjst Sdcgrapluc fiws. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 16 January 1864
ilaUjst Sdcgrapluc fiws. Washington, Jan. 12 —In the Senate, yesterday Mr. McDougall introduced a resolution declaring the occupation of Mexico, by the French, an act unfriendly to this Government, and demanding the withdrawal of the French army by the 15th of March, on pain of declaration of war. It was referred to the Committee on Foreign Affairs, where it will probably i-est forever, as the Chairman is very hostile to anything of the kind. The total number of colored troops now in service in the United States is sixty thousand, with quite as many negroes, not armed, in the service of the Quartermaster, Commissary and Engineer Departments. The total numbers of negroes, of all ages and conditions, which the rebels have, so far lost by war, is estimated at least at half a million. Thirteen sales of confiscated property were held in Washington, amounting to fifty thousand dollars. The bill introduced by representative Stevens yesterday, the consideration of which was postponed till F...
