A.n Emancipation " Soene" at Washington. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 7 June 1862
An Emancipation " Scene" at Washington. A Washington correspondent of the N. Y. Tribune furnishes a graphic description of a scene that occurrcd at the Bethel Church, near the Capitol, on Sunday morning, April 15th—the day of fasting and prayer appointed by the President. The Colored Preacher took for his text the words, "If God be for us, who can be against us ?" and, after speaking of the deliverance of Moses and the Children of Israel from bondage, referred, by a natural transition, to the condition of the slaves in America, and especially in the District of Columbia. The narative ceeds as follows : He thanked the Lord most fervently that he had been permitted to live to see this day ; 43 years ago he was tarred and feathered in Washington, because ho would preach the Lord Jesus as he understood it; " but now," shouted the sable speaker, " let Ethiopia lift up her hands to God, for a great good is coming out of the war ! —a good for me, for us, and for our people, whom every nati...

Special Work for Colored Men. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 7 June 1862
Special Work for Colored Men. Living in a community where we are ostracised, disfranchised, deprived of our rights, civic, political and judicial, we have special duties to perform, a special work to accomplish, different and distinct from any other class in the community. We are Americans by birth, habits, custom, education, religion ; we are part and parcel of the country, homogeneous with the American people ; " natives here and to the manner born," and we cannot be alienated nor driven away. We have, however, from oppressive laws, the» effect of slavery, no rights nor privileges in common with the American people. While we love our country, we are debarred from that right which was dear to every Roman citizen —defending, protecting and fighting for our country : we honor our institutions, but are denied all the benefits arising from them : we revere our laws, but are deprived of the protection which the regis of justice throws over all. This being the case, having special rights...
The Mirror of the Times. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 7 June 1862
The Mirror of the Times. We wish to preserve the records of the principal events which have occurred in the history of the Colored people in California. We have heretofore given brief accounts of the several Conventions "which have been held in this country, and we shall occasionally reter to the effects which have resulted thereform. One of the most important events which has transpired, and which was one of the results oi the Convention of 1855, was the establishment of the Mirror of the Times. Several of our most prominent citizens felt the importance of a paper at, that time, to continue the work commenced by the Convention. After consultation on the subject, they agreed to call a pub lic meeting of the Colored people of this city : the proceedings we copy from the first number of the Mirror, Sept. 13, 1856. At a public mpeting of the colored citizens of San Francisco, held at St. Cyprian's church, on Tuesday evening, August 19th. Peter Anderson was called to the chair, and J. H...

Communinitious. The following communication was received, last week, too late for insertion. We can form no idea of the source from whence it came; and from absence of any indication by the writer of his whereabouts, it might have come from the moon or the antipodes.

JSttortiw. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 14 June 1862
JSttortiw. For Prospectus and Contents see last page. Death of a Noble Woman. Some of the readers may remember an item, which appeard in the Boston Traveler, which gave some account of little ' Daisy,' a child whose father was formerly a slave, and both whose parents had African blood in their veins, though they, as well as their child, were so nearly white as with difficulty to be distinguished from their Anglo-Saxon neighbors. Mrs. Peak, the mother of little Daisy, was exceedingly well educated, having been sent to Northern schools for that purpose. She might readily have separated herself from her despised race, denied her allegiance to it in lineage, and thus escaped contumely. She would not do this, bnt refused, like Moses of old, to be considered one of her people's oppressors, 4 choosing rather to suffer affliction with' them, than to enjoy such sinful pleasure a3 forsaking them might afford. She devoted her time to their instruction. She married a slave, but together they bo...
Uncle Tom's Cabin. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 14 June 1862
Uncle Tom's Cabin. Ten or twelve years a,2:0. Dr. Bailey, the editor of the National Era. a weekly paper published at Washington City, wrote a note to the following effect: My Dear Mrs. S.—l enclose a $100 bill. Please send me a story—anything you choose. This was addressed to Harriet Beecher Stowe, a lady then comparatively unknown to literature—the sister of the famous Henry Ward Beecher, pastor of Plymouth Church, Brooklyn. Mrs. Stowe accepted the offer of the editor, and wrote a note to her brother : My Dear Brother Henri I —Look out for the next numbers of the JYational Era. I shall have a little story in them. Yours. Harriet. • This story, originally intended to occupy about a dozen columns of the paper, and to be concluded in three or four months, was called " Uncle Tom. or Life Among the Lowly." Scarcely had the almost unthinking authoress written her first instalment, when she found the subject growing into magnitude, spreading with the rapidity of Elijah's cloud, and embra...
"pßmaneipation Society of the State of Missouri. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 14 June 1862
"pßmaneipation Society of the State of Missouri. It is perhaps not generally known among our American population, that there is a society organized in this city, bearing the name and style which heads this article. The objects of the association are just what the name, in connection with the "preamble," (published herewith) to the constitution, indicates. The German papers of this city have recently given more or ldss information in regard to it, and some have entertained the idea that it is a movement confined* principally to our German fellow citizens. This impression, however, is erroneous. American citizens of native and foreign birth, and of all nationalities among us, are cordially invited to co-oper-ate in this movement, which is one that will commend itself to the serious attention of all citizens of Missouri, who have the best interests of the State at heart. The Society is denominated " The General Emancipation Society of the State of Misi souri." Auxilliary societies will...
Colored Property-Hcflders in the District of Columbia. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 14 June 1862
Colored Property-Hcflders in the District of Columbia. The report, of Mr. Kennedy, Superintendent of the Census Bureau, relative to the colored property-holders of the District of Columbia, whether intentionally or otherwise, does them the greatest injustice. He says: " The real estate is V owned by 508 persons, averaging $1,205 " each. The real and personal property "is owned by 1,175 persons, averaging " $646 each. The total free colored pop- " ulation in the District of Columbia is " 11,131. ********* " The number of free colored males over "20 years of age is 2,486." After recapitulating the numbers who own property valued at or over certain specified sums, he concludes with the statement, " 9,'956 return no property." This is true on its face, but grossly false in the idea which it conveys. " The number of free colored males," says Mr. Kennedy, "is 2,486." Then the 9,956 whom he represents as having made returns of' no property" are women and children, and persons under 20 year...
