Obituary. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 6 February 1864
Obituary. My dear Mrs. Wilson—We do sincerely sympathize with you in the bereavement of vour little daughter, the more so, from having a knowledge of her amiable, affectionate and sweet disposition. She was an emblem'of innocence, one that God has chosen for himself, encircled her in his arms and reposing on his bosom. In beholding her pale and angelic face, we were forcibly struck : Here lies the grief of a fond mother and the blasted expectations of an indulgent father; the ax is laid at the root and the fatal blow struck, and the tender branch withered and fell to its motherdust. The bud has fallen, to bloom in the man. sions of eternal felicity, where congregations ne'e r break up and Sabbaths never end, for which sh e so imploringly entreated her dear parents to com e j to the light of heaven she spoke of. Sh# lias fully I comprehended there is no need of a candle nor the ! light of the sun, for the Lord God is the light of | the city; she has passed through the cold and chilli...

ksdjfkdsljfdslkjdkfl John P. Browne, Esq., Secretary of the American Legation at Constantinople, writes as follows, in a private letter respecting the employment of black soldiers in Turkey. " Here are plenty of black omcers and soldiers, who do as well as white; but there is no prejudice here against color, as in the United States. Slavery is not hereditary, and a freedman is on a footing, legally, with the white man. There arc no civil disabilities against him ; he.ls left to B eek whatever fortune God gives him, like a ny other human being." From the Anti* Slavery Standard. Speech of Frederick Douglass, At the Third Decade Celebration of the AntiSlavery Society in Philadelphia. (Concluded.) Mr. President, I have a patriotic argument in favor of insisting upou the immediate enfranchisement of the slaves of the South, and it is this : When the rebellion shall have been put down, when the arms shall have fallen from the guilty hands of traitors, you will need the friendship of the s...
Not so Insignificant. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 13 February 1864
Not so Insignificant. THE PACIFIC APPEAL. SAN FH AN CISCO : SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 1864. We wrote an article, two or three weeks ago, attempting to show that the City Railroad Companies were working agayist their own interests by excluding colored people from their cars. We should not, at the time, have written upon the subject, if those companies had not been imploring the Legislature to advance their rates of fare. A morning contemporary copied a part of our article on that subject, of course in a spirit of derision, stating that the reason the companies were not paying institutions was because the " colored population" was not permitted to patronize them. This may be all very well in a joke, but, in seriousness, let us come to fact? and figures, According to the census, there are nearly two thousand oolored people living in the city of San Francisco. We will leave out those who visit as sojourners, and we wjll also base our theory on a very low estimate. If there be but four rout...

Communications. For the Pacific Appeal. Notes of a Trip to Victoria. NUMBER Six. To Messrs. J. Francis, Gibbs, Pointer, Lester, Plummer, Serrington, Ringo, A. H. Francis, Robinson and others. Gentlemen—l cannot close this series of papers without recurring, with grateful feelings of pleasure, to the many acts of kindness I received at your hands, and I must give evidence of the uniform hospitality, and (barring the few peculiarities which I have jocosely noticed) courteous manner in which I was treated. Whatever I may have said of the habits and customs of some of the people of Victoria, refers only to national traits : I have carefully avoided any invidious allusions to personalities. I may have said some things, in way of pleasant satire, which grated harshly on the sensitive nerves of those, perhaps, who are most prone to apts which merit censure, but all I have said of the offensive national pride, of the strong secesssion feeling, aud the general and wilful ignorance which prev...

Selections. Opening Letters. — A Massachusetts Judge has decided that a husband may open his wife's letters, on the ground so often and tersely stated by Theoplnlus Parsons, of Cambridge, "that the husband and the wife ore one, and the husband is that one !" The Ihread which forms the spiders' web the microscope informs us, is composed of more than four thousand of smaller threads, which are spuu from the body of the spiaer. From the Anti-Slavery Standard. Speech of Theodore Tilton. Deliverad at the Third Decade Celebration of the Anti-Slaverv Society at Philadelphia, I often think of that saying of Annie of Austria, " God does not pay at the end of every week, but He pays at last." Now at the end of a generation, for all the struggle, for all the toil, for all the obstacles and perils, for all the burdens borne in the heat of the day—what a rich reward falls to these early laborers; youog then, but now gray ! what retrospect and prospect ! what memories of the past and hopes for th...
The Colonisation Babble Burst. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 20 February 1864
The Colonisation Babble Burst. Extract from the report of the Secretary of the Interior: I am unable to report any greater disposition, generally, among the colored persons, for whose colonization, provision was made by certain recent acts of Congress, to emigrate, than had been exhibited at the time of your last animal message. Since that time, however, about 450 have been deported to the Isle de Yache, adjacent and belonging to th« Republic of Hayti. The condition of this colony ha« been variously represented, and an agent has been deputed by the government to visit the island and report the real situation of affairs, and the future prospects of the emigrant there. They were emigrated under a contract entered into for that purpose, with persons who were represented as possessing every qualification and fit- ness for insuring the success of the experiment ; but nothing has yet been paid them under it, nor will there be until the report of the agent shall have been received and foun...

The Radical Wisdom of the Administration. THE PACIFIC APPEAL. SAN FRANCISCO : SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 1864. Almost every bill which has been iutroduced into and acted upon by Congress, siuco the holidays, is based upon the most profoundly radical views of a just national policy, and its application to existing emergencies for the permanent good of the country. The Government seems to be lully determined to undermine and cut away every vestige of power which slavery ever had or pretended to have under the Constitution. It had long been an unset" tied question whether that potential instra* ment was anti-slavery or pro'-slavery, and it has never yet been decided except by construction, But one of the measures now before Congress, is bo to amend the Constitution as to forever prohibit any human creature from being held under its shelter, in any State, as a slave. Most of the pro-slavery clamor heard by Northern men, several years ago, and echoed by " peace men" of the present day, in ho...

The School Bill. ii!r~ x xi i* 11 [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 20 February 1864
The School Bill. ii!r~ x xi i* 11 We extract the following from the Sacra, meuto Union's report of the proceedings of the Assembly, on Thursday, Feb. 11, on the School Bill: Assembly Bill No. 216—An Act supplementary to and amendatory of an Act of April 6, 1863, to provide fur the maintenance and supervision of common schools —was taken up as the special order, considered in Committee of the Whole, and read by sections. Mr. Button moved to amend by adding a section compelling parents or guardians to send their children to school or teach them at home in the usual branches, and urged the importance and necessity of such a provision. Mr. Tukey opposed the amendment as applied to the State generally, and recommended for Sun Erancisco the adoption of the Boston plan of captnring truants, and either securing their attendance at school or sending them to the Reform School. Mr. Winchester favored the amendment. The subject was further discussed by Messrs. Watson, Owen, McColliam, Hirst and...

Communications. For the Pacific Appeal. The Great Concert. The Benefit Concert at Piatt's Hall, on Wednesday afternoon, was the musical success of the season. The gems of the matinee were Vieuxtemps Capricyne, and the duet from II Poliuto. In the first, Mr. M Simonsen proved himself a master of the Violin ; his fingering is perfect, and the whole of that difficult and accentric composition rendered. The Bianchis gave the duet in a truly artistic style. They were both in excellent voice, and appeared to possess a perfect knowledge of the ideas of their composer. The execution of Signora Bianchi was brilliant, and the sweet, but powerful tenorrobusto voice of Signor Bianchi was well adapted to the rule. They were deservedly encored. The other performances were worthy the occasion. The overtures to " Oberon," " William Tell," and "The Merry Wives of Windsor," have never been as well played in this country, The Orchestra, consisting of nearly sixty musicians, deserves great credit for t...

l For the Pacific Appeal. The Ebb of Life. BY THE LATE MRS. F. J. CAIN. Deeds of horror, Cases of sorrow, Go side by side. Youth full of glow, Feels the time slow, Coursing on. Man in his prime, Heeds not the time Flying by. Eager to catch the prize, Quick he essays to rise— Onward he goes, Traveling o'er hill and dale, Through many a lonely vale, After the prize. Down in the watery deep Vainly he tries to reap— There is no reward. What neit is he to do? What course must be pursue? Try, try again. Fortune has proved unkind, And out of heart and mind, He lives a life forlorn. Ah I it is thus with man, Moving in life's caravan, Down to the tomb. For the Pacific Appeal. THE CONTEST. Wo are warning, we are marching, In a conflict grand and vast, With its intrests overarching, All the struggles of the past. See the words of cheer and wonder, On our banners now unfurled, Hear them, mid the battles thunder, Freedom for a groaning world. Comrades, in this war contending, All the earthly hop...

fCatot sMrgtapbw $&lt;m New York, Feb. 17th.—A secret Union Association has been formed in Virginia ; it is known to have over ten thousand members ; some of these are wealthy and influential citizens. Fortress Monroe, Feb. 15th.—Colonel Streight, with one hundred and ten other Union officers, escaped from the prison at Kichmond. The account of their escape is lull of thrilling interest, but for prudential reasons many of the particulars are withheld from publications. They were fiftyone days making the tunnel, their instruments being case knives, pocket knives, chisels and files. Twice they had to abandon the work, and commence again, on account of obstructions which they could not pass. They disposed of the excavated earth by drawing it out of the hole in a spittoon, which they attached to a cord. This would be filled by the party at work in the tunnel, who disposed of it by spreading it in shallow layers over the floor, covering it with straw. The work was necessarily slo...
