Selections. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 31 May 1862
Selections. From the New York Independent. PROQHESB. The history of the anti-slavery cause is a curious, though, as yet, an unwritten one. The Cardinal Ximenes, a prelate as eminent for his sanctity as his humanity, and for his unbounded influence over the mind of the greatest sovereign of Spain— greatest though a woman —was its father ; and he could discover no better remedy for the servitude which was rapidly destroying the natives of the West Indies, and consigning them to perdition, than to make slaves of the blacker heathens of Africa. That bold divine of New England, Cotton Mather, questioned, in the next century, the accepted dogma that an Afrioan had no soul; and though he believed men were permitted by divine Providence to follow the devices of their own sinful natures, and enter into leagues and make compacts with the Evil One, he doubted if God created any creature in his own image but with the nature only of the beasts that perish. Another century passed away, when good ...
Free Blacks. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 31 May 1862
Free Blacks. In another article we have directed attention to the radical measures to restrain the entrance within our borders of the hordes of Asiatics now seeking our shores—a present and practicable evil of groat magnitude. But there is an impending danger of equal if not greater importance to the future welfare of our State, which should be provided against by timely Legislative enactments. Whatever may be the result of the war of rebellion now raging in the Eastern States, one consequence is certain—vast numbers of blacks heretofore hold in bondage will become free, and, to preserve that freedom, must seek homes where slavery has never existed or has been long extinct. So terrible is such a prospective irruption to those States most accesible to its advance, that their Legislatures have already enacted laws, or are engaged in the consideration of decrees, prohibiting the settlement within their limits of persons of color, bond or free. That California has not thus far been seri...
The District of Columbia Emancipation Act. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 31 May 1862
The District of Columbia Emancipation Act. By this Act the capital of the American Republic has ceased to be a slave-holding and slave-trading city. The event is one of vast importance. It places the American Government in its proper position with reference to human bondage, embracing, as it does, a declaration that the sympathies of the "freest Government on earth," as far as %hpy can be constitutionally exercised, are against slavery and are to be employed henceforth in the interests of Freedom. Thus has been removed from among us another of the ready causes of partisan agitation and sectional Btrife. It only remains to put down the rebellion, and to take one or two other steps to shake off the hold of slavery on the Federal Government, and to force it into its true position as a merely domestic institution. . That done, there can be no more national struggles over the question. Emancipation will be discussed in the States, and parties therein may and will divide upon the question...
THE PACIFIC APPEAL. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 31 May 1862
THE PACIFIC APPEAL. SAN FRANCISCO : SATURDAY, MAY 31, 1862. The Appeal can be had at J. W. Sullivan's News Depot, near the Post Office. City Agent.—Mr. John F. Moore will act as City Agent and Carrier. He will commence next week. Our Agents will please collect for the month of June, and remit as speedily as possible. The Police Gazette of this city is a wellconducted, and, generally, a very liberal paper : its usual view of matters, social, moral and political, r is above the narrow minds and sordid principles of the debased and vulgar ; it avoids the slang of political partizans, and the cant of those papers which pander to the prejudices of the ignorant and seek for popular favor by encouraging those prejudices. Thank God, they are passing away, "marching on" to oblivion : we believe the class, in this city, is confined to a little diurnal, of little circulation, less influence and no principles. But it appears the Editor of the Police Gazette is following in the wake of the journ...

Coramunitatumisi. For the Pacific Appeal. Vancouver's Island and British Columbia Correspondence. i Dkar Sir.—" The cry is still they come." The Frazer, Cariboo, Stiekeen, and now another creek is reported by the magistrate of Antler Creek, which is likely to prove very valuable.. - The truth is, Cariboo and its creeks, gfulchea, etc., etc., are not yet known : every day brings into view the shining, guttering, covered golden ore. idea must strike us: how nature, or, in the bowels of the earth for the' jf its inhabitants. What would California or Australia have been without the mines ? Or what would nine-tenths of the world have known of Vancouver's island but for British Columbia, which would have had no name but for the Frazer River excitement in 1858. This idea may be worth following up. The wisdom of the Great Architect must not bo forgotten in our adoration of the god Mammon. ; .

Poetry. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 31 May 1862
Poetry. 9 For the Pacific Appeal. ~| TO ANDALUSIA. Ton ask me if I think of you, And of the hours we've past, At even, or in the twilight dew, Hours too bright to last. And of the love-tales we have told, In whispers soft and low, While watching distant twinkling stars, That seemed to oome and go. And bow we've watched the pale moonbeams Flit o'er the summer sky, Sweet souvenirs of love's bright dreams, • Now lost to you and I. Don't ask me if I think of you, Such questions now were vain : In sadness have we bade adieu, And ne'er must meet again. The tie which once united us, Is parted now for aye; The couse we will not now dißcuss, Let come whatever may, Time and space must intervene, Between us, now and ever: When coldness reigns wherolove has been, ' Tib best to part forever. A fond regret in parting thus, May sometimes canse a sigh ! It matters not, since part we mgst, So now for aye, good bye. Xomis.

Selections. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 7 June 1862
Selections. Good Conduct of the African People. The remarkably good conduct of the African people, during the convulsions of the past year, ought to excite the attention and gratitude of good men 4 . 1 The free Colored people have avoided any course calculated to excite prejudices already too sensitive. In the South, they have justified all the good opinions that have been entertained of them, and put to shame the popular expectations. For the people have, for a generation, been brought up and fed on the fears of insurrection, rapine, blood, cruelty, conflagration, robbery and lust, should the slave lose the control of his master. Instead of this, the thousands and thousands of escaped or liberated slaves have proved themselves as kind, obedient, and as industrious as was possible in their circumstances. They have never proved fractious or indocile. They have never been revengeful or sullen. They have shown no indisposition to be restrained and guided by civil and special police reg...
Recognition of the Republics of Hayti and Liberia. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 7 June 1862
Recognition of the Republics of Hayti and Liberia. Mr. Sumner's bill for the recognition of the republics of Liberia and Hayti has passqd'the Senate, by yeas 32, nays 7. Senators Latham and McDougall both voted in the affirmative. The nays were Messrs. Bayard and Saulsbury of Delaware, Carlileof Virginia, Powell of Kentucky, Stark of Oregon, and Thompson of New Jersey. The bill authorizes the President to appoint to each of these republics a diplomatic representative of the United States, to be an accredited Commissioner and Consul-General, with an annual salary of $4,000. There is no reason to doubt but that the House will readily pass the bill. In the debate Mr. Sumner advocated the measure at considerable length, illustrating the trade and productions, the general statistics and commercial and political importance of those Statos of the Colored race. The area of the territory of Hayti, embracing 35,000 square mi les, was about equal to Ireland; its soil was rich with tropical lux...
