to accept the honor offered as an acknowledgement of your eminent worth and social standing in the community. You have always been ready and willing to aid our little Institute with your eminent talents and abilities.

Starkey, and Members of the San Francisco Literary Institute : The omomunication containing the action of your Society in electing me an honorary member, was received with pleasure. The unexpected token of confidence and esteem that is shown in your kind expressions towards me, more than compensate for the meager assistance rendered by my humble efforts.

I accept with feelings of gratitude the honor confered, and hope in the providence of God it may be in my power yet to assist in the good cause that excites emotions in the march of mind, and adds a leaf to the intell...

Poetry. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 5 April 1862
Poetry. THE PASSAGE OF THE BED SEA God looked to the earth ! 'twas bristled with spears. 'Twas wet with the blood of the brave; lie saw the widow's and orphan's tears, He heard the groaning slave. Yea! even his chosen people bow'd •To tyranny's iron rod ; For Egypt's despot fierce and proud, Mock'd Israel and their God. God spake! an angel sprang from the' throne, High the commission he bore, Redeem the earth from zone to zono, Spread freedom from shore to shore. Rapidly rapid that angel sped Past many a glittering star, That laughed in the light his glory shed, Aud flash'd their joy afar. Careering onward his course to earth, He saluted each sister orb, Who blush'd as she breath'd the balmy breath Of freedom's angel Lord. And socn he waved o'er Egypt's vale His plume of fire and flame : But tyranny's breath had so poisoned the gale That few dared breath his name. Ho stood on that vale's luxuriant soil And said," God's sons, be free .1 From the hidden source of the dark, deep Nile, ...

Selections. Away Down South, in Dixie. CONTRABANDS. , Ascending the stone stairway to the 3d story of the building, (the Washington City Jail,) entering a dark corridor and passing along a few steps, we coine to a room about twelve or fifteen feet squar&lt;f. Here are about twenty colored men. They are still at their dinner of boiled bpef and corn cake. Here is one old man sitting on the stone floor, silent and sorrowful. He has committed no crime. Around, standing, sitting, or lying are the others, of all shades of color, frQm jet black to ttte Caucasian hue, the Anglo Saxon hair and contour of features. They are from.ten to fifty years of age. Some are dressed decently, others are in rags. One bright fellow of twenty has a pair of trowsers only, and tries to keep himself warm by drawing around him a tattered blanket. A little fellow, ten years old, is all in rags. There is no chair or bed in the room. They must stand or sit, or lie upon the brick and granite floor. There i...

THE PACIFIC APPEAL. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 12 April 1862
THE PACIFIC APPEAL. SAN FRANCIB( o : SATURDAY, APRIL 12, 1852. Our position in this country bears no analogy to that of any other race or people who ever existed; neither history or tradition, give any account, nor trace any description of a race whose position was similar to ours. " Exiles in our native land," aliens in the country that gave us birth, outlaws or no crime, proscribed without offence, amenable to the laws without being protected by them, thus we stand, innocent victims of an unholy and unrighteous prejudice—truly our condition is most, deplorable. It is not the result of opr physical organism, neither are we punished for the sins of our fathers, for we have been oppressed and sinned against for centuries ; neither is it owing to any natural prejudice in the whites against the blacks ; for prejudice against color is urtnatural, not instinctive—it only arises from education and acquires ascendency in the human mind from the force of example. To what, then, is to be att...
The Conveution of 1855. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 12 April 1862
The Conveution of 1855. The interest manifested for the success of our Petitions to the Legislature for the " Right of Testimony," induces us to give a brief history of our struggles to obtain a boon so priceless. Those odious laws which are disgraceful to the State, and which t;ike from us all legal protection, were passed in the years 1850 and '51. From 1851 until 1855, public meetings were held in San Francisco, ,and in the interior of the State, and petitions were scut to the Legislature, praying for redress of our grievences. [The following gentlemen were prominent iu those movements, and took active part : Messrs. 11. M. Collins, Wm, If. Yates, M. W. Gibbs, J. J. Moore, A. 11. Francis, P. Lester, .1. 11. Townsend, N. Pointer, J. Francis, W. H. Newby and others. The Petitions met with an adverse fate ; they were either indignantly thrown out of the window, or laid on the table, no member being bold enough to advocate a consideration. The first general effort made by the Colored...
Apologetical. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 12 April 1862
Apologetical. Our first number was the reeiilt of four days labor. We made up our minds on Monday, 30th of March, to commence a weekly journal; by noon we had concluded an engagement with our printer, and decided 011 our name ;—the most difficult task of all. Friday noon, 4th inst. we went to press; so we had but four days to complete our work. There are many typographical errors in our first number, which were unavoidable, in consequence of the haste in which we got out our paper. We hope nothing of the kind will happen again.
Those "Books." [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 12 April 1862
Those "Books." HINT NO. 2Our friends have not responded to our hint of last week in presenting us with Books, &amp;c. We are greatly in want of books, and in particular need of &amp;c. We don't want any steel pens, we have a score or more which will last us a year for office use, but if any of our friends have any gold pens laying around loose we will be obliged to them if—you understand. Hint No. 3.—A saddle is of no use without a horse, and a gold pen for the pocket is useless without a case. Hint No, 4.—lf the case contains all the appurtenances so much the better.
Correspondence. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 12 April 1862
Correspondence. }\c have received words of cheering import from numerous friends, all of whom think we have commenced our journal in the right time. Mr. James (J. Nichols of Sacramento, says : I was quite agreeably surprised on the reccipt of the first number of the Pacific Appeal, and I can assure you that there is nothing that will afford me a greater pleasure than in using my influence in its support. If you can get some person that would take the same interest in the pajjer that I would take, (if my business arrangements permitted,) to go around among the people and solicit their patronage, 1 think &gt; i can get from forty to fifty monthly subscribers now, and, in the course of three or four months, Sacramento will be again flourishing and she will answer nobly to the support of the Pacific Appeal. M. S. P. Clan toil of Benicia writes as follows : On looking over the Alta of yesterday, I saw a notice of the new enterprise into which you have embarked in the shape of a j...
iommunfcaiions. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 12 April 1862
iommunfcaiions. For the Pacific Appeal. SMALL POX. Mr. Editor : Although fresh eases of small p«x come under notice, upon the whole, this terrible pestilence is abating ; nevertheless, it is due to tjie public that tliey should be made aware of the imperative necessity for re-vaccinnation. Of every 100 adult cases of re-vaccina-tion, not more than 18 fail to pass through the regular course ; in most cases the old scar was visible; while in the cases of three children—respectively agefl 8, 11 and 14 years, the original mark of vaccinuation being visible, perfect vesicles were formed on re-vaccinnation, yielding a supply, at the seventh day. of colorless, limpid virus, and the local phenomena proceeded regularly, showing, clearly, these -children, having crossed the Isthmus, that the duration of the protection of the first vaccination was effected by change of climate. y- The researches of the most eminent physicians of France, Germany, Prussia, Philadelphia, Boston, Charleston, New Y...
Jlotias. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 12 April 1862
Jlotias. Grand Festival of the African Methodist Episcopal Church. We attended by invitation the above Festival on Thursday evening, 10th inst., and we found the whole arrangement worthy of praise. The management was in the hands of a committee of ladies, and they acquitted themselves with credit, and, we h.&gt;pc with profit to the object to which the proceeds are to be applied. -&gt; It is well known that the Trustees of the Methodist Church worshipping in Scott st. have recently purchased Grace Church in Powell street, and the Festival was given for the benefit of that enterprise. Short and eloquent Addresses were delivered by Mr. Isaac Starkey and Dr. R. E. Johnson which merited and received the Applause of the audience. The tables, which were under the charge of Messrs. B. Fletcher and W. Waugh, were bountifully spread with substantial and delicacies, and the whole affair was conducted to the entire satisfaction of a numerous audience ; over 200 persons being pr...
