s It is stated, by gentlemen recently from Tennessee, that at an informal meeting of thirty prominent slaveholders of that State, all but two expressed the opinion that the advantages to be derived from coming a ir ain under the National Government would more than compensate for any loss of slave property they might suffer, and that herefore no remuneration should be asked from the Federal Government. The Frost went to the Flower to marry, and said to the Flower, " Wilt thou P and the Flower wilted. From the Anti-Slavery Standard.

Tauey to derond hjm—the same who is now the copperhead Chief Justice of the United States —aud in his opening speech, Mr. Taney said: "There is no law that forbids us to speak of slavery as we thing qjf it. Any man has a right to publish his opiuions on that subject whenever he pleases. It is a subject of national concern, and may at all times be freely discussed.

What We Have and What We Want. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 27 February 1864
What We Have and What We Want. THE PACIFIC APPEAL. SAN FRANCISCO: SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 1864. During the past two years a great part of Congressional as well as State legislation has had the tendency to ameliorate the condition and elevate the character of colored Americans. After many long years of struggling, aided by the friends of freedom, they have succeeded in obtaining, in a great degree, most of the rights which had been denied to or wrested from them by the hostile slave-power,—a power whose potency may now be considered as dethroned forever in this country, and as without the pale of our national Government. As the republic was founded in freedom, its governmental policy must henceforth be antislavery. The " irresistible conflict," as predicted, by all statesmeif and enlightoned civilians, has resulted in the overthrow of the "gigantic monster," and slavery, though not quite as dead as desired by many, still the nation holds it with a dead" ly grasp, as it were, in the le...

Communications. For the Pacific Appeal. " The Future Condition of the Afrioan Race, in the United States." Miss Eiuma Hardinge delivered a lecture oil this subject, on Monday evening, 22d inst., in the Methodist Church, Powell St., for the benefit of that Church. Miss Hardinge was introduced by Rev. T. M. D. Ward, in a few appropriate remarks, alluding to her generous offer, to deliver this lecture to aid in extinguishing the balance of' the debt now due. The lecturess commenced by comparing the Africa-Americarf race with the children of Israel. Of similar rude and barbaric origin, slavery was to both a purifying ordeal. Notwithstanding the cruelties of the Egyptian and American slaveholders, and the brutalizing effects of slavery, both races increased' in numbers, and advanced in the knowledge of the arts of civilization nearly equal with their oppressors, until the Lord raised up Moses of old, as he has raised up many Moseses of our day, who, with the continual cry of, "let my peo...

Obituary. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 27 February 1864
Obituary. Died, at Stockton, Feb. 19, John Henry Hubbard, infant son of Jas. H. and Josephine Hubbard, aged 11 months and 1 day. An exotic rare to us was given, The spring of many a radiant joy, But it blooms to-day in the light of heaven,— My pretty, smiling, cherub boy. " Earth to earth," of him was said, Now in the cold grave he is lying; Weep not, grieve not, for the loved one : He is gone where there '11 be no more sighing. "Ashes to ashes," the darling has left us— His dwelling the tomb has become: He will quietly sleep, though over his head Should breathe, in fierce threatening, thestorm " Dust to dust," the Lord had given ; We believe it, for so says the word, And we know the Lord bath taken away, Then blest be the name of the Lord.
