ksdjfkdsljfdslkjdkfl How to Keep Warm. —Soldiers and others will do well to remember this bit of advice during cold weather. A large newspaper placed between a pair of bed blankets is equal in warmth to a thick comforter. _ Among the captures at the evacuation of Fort Wagner were five negro soldiers, two of whom were fully armed and equipped as rebel sharpshooters. One of them—a rebel at heart—was the owner of several slaves. From the Christian Examiner. The Function of the Orator. It is the function of the orator, as such, distinctively to persuade men to honorable action, or enkindle them to noble sentiment, on the basis of their national life. This element of nationality must always be more or less, directly, or indirectly, present, and is the very gist and essence of the orator's inspiration. Eloquence there may be in books, in parlors, wherever men speak or write ; but oratory belongs above all to the forum ; it stands in close connection with patriotism ; its priucipal purpose...
The City Railroad Companies before the Legislature. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 30 January 1864
The City Railroad Companies before the Legislature. THE PACIFIC APPEAL. SAN Fit AN CISCO : SATURDAY, JANUARY 30, 18C4. One or more of these companies are importuning the Legislature to alter their charters, bo as to allow them to charge an advance of fare. They do not mention the fact that they have deprived a large portion of the population (we mean respectable colored people) from having transit in their cars. Had they afforded them accommodation from the first, no one will deny that they would have yielded some revenue, and that, too, with no more detriment to them or their passengers than it is to the Market st. or Mission road company, that allow colored persons to ride inside their cars. The very people of whose feelings they have been 80 teudcr, have began to view the subjcct in the same light in which most of the respectable colored people do . that is, they consider it no great honor or privilege to ride a short direct distance through a couple of streets, say from Jack, so...
A Word in Time. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 30 January 1864
A Word in Time. A communication from Mr. J. B, of Virginia City, has been recHved. It charges another colored man (who said that he had only temporarily left that city,) with several criminal acts, prior to leaving the Territory. If J. B's statement is correct, which we do not attempt to doubt, we believe he and others have been wronged by the party named in the article, and of course has our individual sympathy, and 110 doubt the sympathy of many others. But our rule is to keep all criminations and recriminations out ©f this paper—for the reason we believe, that the Courts of Justice are the proper places to remedy such etils and to obtain redress. The Governor of each State or Territory, we also believe, is empowered to issue requisitions, and demand those who flee from justice to other States ; for those reasons we decline to publish the communication from J. B. While on this subject we may here state, that there are those among us, who do not appear to have a proper conception o...

Mr. Editor—ln behalf of an interested public, 1 will make some few inquiries, through your journal, in regard to the above-namt'd Institute, of which so much has been said, and, seemingly, so little done.

Has the "Livingstone Institute" ever yet been completed— except on paper—if so, where is its location, and when and by whom dedicated ? 3d. If it has not been completed—and we have reasons for believing that it has not —why have the Committee so quietly laid aside an undertaking of such stupendous magnitude and incalculable public importance, without even saying why or wherefor, after having collected a sum of mon...

New York, January 26.—The special dispatch to the Times says : " General Grant will issue an address to the people of Arkansas, urging them to return to their allegiance, declaring as slavery is dead, nothing is" left for the South to fight for."

ksdjfkdsljfdslkjdkfl Literary Anecdote. —Poets are but poor friends to one another; no rival can be endured. Rousseau, however, and Voltaire were together at Brussels. The Swiss philosopher showed the Fuench poet a lyric epistle, addressed to posterity; the latter observed, " My friend 1 this letter will never be delivered according to directions." This piece of raillery Rousseau never forgave. Neal Dow states the Libby Prison fare to be potatoes and rice, and little of that. From the Anti-Slavery Standard. Speech of Frederick Douglass, At the Third Decade Celebration of the AntiSlavery Society in Philadelphia. Ladies and Gentlemen—l confess at the outset to have felt a very profound desire to utter a word at some period during the present meeting. As it has been repeatedly said here, it has been a meeting of reminiscences. I shall not attempt to treat you to any of my own in what I have now to say, though 1 have some in connection with the labors of this Society, aud in connection ...
The Duty of the Hour. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 6 February 1864
The Duty of the Hour. THE PACIFIC APPEAL. SAN * Fit AN CISCO : SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 1864. It has become apparent, from the events which have trauspired during the last two years, that the colored people, not. only of this Stale, but of the whole United will be called upon, during the next decade of years, to occupy far more available positions than have ever been allotted to them in this country since the formation of the Government. In view of this progress, the most important step for them to take in the outset, is the immediate education, not only the youth, but also of those who have arrived to years of ity. In regard to the youth, every parent should use redoubled efforts, in the respeccive localities of the State, and endeavor to have a school of some kiud formed, notwithstanding the disabling school laws of the State. Better tax yourselves a small proportion a month, for this purpose, than let your chiidren be kept from the higher branches of learning, in consequence of thos...

CommuuMttimtf. .For the Pacific Appeal. Notes of a Trip to Victoria. NUMBER FIVE. But few incidents occurred during' the remainder of my stay in Victoria worthy of note. I dined by invitation with Capt. Richard and Mr. A. H. Francis, and visited around generally. There is as much prejudice and nearly /is much isolation in Victoria as in San Francisco. In some caseethe social and political position of the colored people is more favorable there than here, but the Americans and Jews from California who have settled there, have formed a public opinion unfavorable to us. Happily they have not succeeded in all cases. Churches and schools are exceptions, although our leading men had to fight hard to obtain their rights in both. Messrs. Lester, Gibbs, J. Francis and others, battled manfully to keep churches and schools free from caste, and to their exertions is due the equality which exists in those institutions. It was grudgingly and unwillingly awarded, but they claimed it as their rights...
