A Noble Act. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 14 June 1862
A Noble Act. A noble ship was bearing down on the English coast, under a stiff breeze and a lowering sky. It was not many hours be- fore she was in the teeth of a violent storm, rolling Mid plunging in the angry waters. The wind shrieked through'her cordage and her huge timbers groaned from stem to stern. She at last struck and became unmanageable, and hoisted signals of distress, A crew of brave and hardy men from the shore put out to rescue her living freight. Among these on board was a negro, with two orphan childen under his charge. The boat was soon filled with the affrighted passengers, and there was room but for one more—room for the negro, or the two little ones. Who should be saved—who left behind to perish? The faithful negro did not hesitate. Over the ship's sides he lowered the helpless children into the life-boat, and only called out, " Tell master, Cuffie did his duty," Hannah More was asked to write a poem on this touching event, but she declined, saying, "No art coul...

THE PACIFIC APPEAL. SAN FRANCISCO: SATURDAY, JUNE 14, 1862. * Tho Appeal can be had at J. W. Sulli▼an's News Depot, near the Post Office. City Agent.—Mr. John F. Moore will act as City Agent and Carrier. t&amp;* Oar Agents will please collect for the nonth of Jane, and remit as speedily as possible- We have refrained, hitherto, from commenting on President Lincoln's Pro-slavery Proclamation in reference to the proclamation issued by Gen. Hunter, declaring the slaves free in the department of tho South, over which he had military command, in hopes that the President only denied that Gen. Hunter had " been authorized by the Government to make any proclamation declaring slaves free," in order that action in the premises might come from the highest source, t. e. the President himself, more, over, he intimates in his proclamation that he is yet undecided. He says, " whether it is competent for him, as Commander-in-Chief of the army and navy, to declare slaves in any State free, a...
®ommuniati<ms. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 14 June 1862
®ommuniati&lt;ms. For the Pacific Appeal. Mr. Editor :—Our people have of late been frequently called upon to contribute towards buying, enlarging and beautifying churches, and liberally have they responded to the demands made upon them. Such sacred movements are highly creditable to the movers therein, and are justly deserving the encouragement of all who have been raised in a Christain land, who have imbibed the principles of a Christain education, and felt the influence of the Christain faith. I am glad to see our people are turning their attention towards enlarging and adorning their places of public worship. Sacred history furnishes us with a precedent for erecting fine edifices dedicated to the worship of Almighty God. The Temple of Solomon was the first building erected for Divine worship, and the readers of Scriptural and Jewish history all know the splendor and magnificence of that hftly edifice.. The Heathens were also famous for the splendor of their temples of id...

Gen. Hunter's Action. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 14 June 1862
Gen. Hunter's Action. Gen. Hunter began in April last, to issue, in his military division, free papers to the Negroes entitled, under the Act of Congress, to their freedom, by virtue of services compulsorily rendered to the Rebels. Printed forms are prepared, requiring only to be filled with the name of the former slave and the signature of the General commanding' who emancipates him. The following is a copy of the first paper, and which probably caused so much discussion as to Gen. Hunter's measures for emancipation : " It haviug been proven, to the entire satisfaction of the General 'commanding, the Department of the South, that the bearer, William Jenkins, heretofore held in involuntary servitude, has been directly employed to aid and assist those in rebellion against the United States of America : " Now, be it known to .all, that, agreeably to the laws, I declare the said person free, and forever absolved from all claims to his services. Both he, and his wife, and his children, ...

f»et*g. Fur th e Pacific Appeal. In Response to the Gift of a Flower, from Hiaa G. B. L, This eimplo flowtr, 0 lovely one, I* well befitting thee; For in thy far off humble home, 1 pray the* think of me; And still though yearn of joy may coma, With soma faint trace of sorrow, The drooping heart of a weary one, From hope some joy may borrow. The song of the " Gaudy Chaplet," Perhaps you ne'er may see, But after a gentle shower, This flower has come to me : And I think of the gentle giver, And that dark and sparkling eye, And the memory of a simple flower, lingers as time goes by.

piurellanrous. 'W From Saw Dohinoo.—The steamer brings us nothing of interest from Panama. We find, however, the following in the Star and' Herald with regard to Hayti: From St. Domingo we learn that there is a prospect of a misunderstanding between the Spanish and Haytien Government concerning the old question of the boundary line. Spain is determined to have the old limits established, but the Haytiena are inclined to resist what they regard as an unjust and illegal claim. The Spanish forces •re concentrating at Agua, and it is expected they will attack the ijaytiens unless they do as they aro bid. The Spaniards say that, if urged to make war, they will compel Geffrard to give up the lino claimed and to pay all the expenses. The Madrid correspondent of the Independence Beige, writing on the SOth ult., states that a royal decree, signed by the Queen of Spain, has created tho* famous Santana, who sold St. Domiogo to tho Spanish Government, the " Marquis do las Carreras," this being ...

jSflcrtions. For Prospectus and Contents see last page. Contrabands in Philadelphia. As various statements and conflicting rumors have been currently reported relative to the arriving of contrabands in Philadelphia, it may be well for the public to know the facts in the case. On Friday, March 28th, ninety one (no more) contrabands, men, women and children, reached here, coming from Harper's Ferry, via Baltimore. From the Ferry they came as far as Baltimore under charge of an officer, who had a list of their names, and who also procured their passage to this city, and sent them on. On arriving here they were refreshed at the Union Refreshment Saloon, and while left to take care of themselves, the news of their arrival having gone out, many, both white and colored, rushed to see them, and as though they had been long looked for relations, all were soon kindly welcomed toiemporary homes in Colored families, which favors were received with evident marks of gratitude on their part.

Maryland Slavery. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 21 June 1862
Maryland Slavery. The Baitimore American, a paper of the j first respectability, has a significant ar- 1 ticle on the situation and prospects ofj slavery in Maryland. It affirms that the, mad course of the cotton States has virtually ruined the interests of the slaveholders in Maryland, as, in consequence of' their action, the value of slaves has been reduced to a nominal sum, as negroes, who a year ago were worth fifteen hundred dollars, now sell for three hundred; and the American, suggests that it is time for the State to save what it can of this species of property. It adds : " That the loyal men of the nation will longer tolerate slavery as a 4 political hobby' is not possible. It has to go to the wall, ' peaceably, if it will—forcibly, if it must;' and those who debate its merits in future, even here in Maryland, will have to confine themselves to its pecuniary aspects. The 4 precipitators have pretty nearly precipitated it; have dragged it at last to the brow of a precipice, ...
Robert Small. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 21 June 1862
Robert Small. The House of Representatives at Wash" ington, it is to be hoped, will be more just to their own sense of right and to their more generous impulses than to put aside again the Senate bill giving the prize-mon-ey they have so well earned to the crew of the steamer Planter. Neither House would have done an act unworthy of their dignity had they promptly passed a vote of thanks to Robert Small and his fellows for the cool courage with which they planned and executed their escape from Rebel bondage, and the unswerving loyalty which prompted them, at the same time, to bring away such spoils from the enemy as would make a welcome addition to the blockading squadron. If we must still remember with humiliation that the Confederate flag yet waves where our National colors were first struck, we should be all the more prompt to recognize the merit that has put into our possession the first trophy from Port Sumter. And the country should feel doubly humbled if there is not magnanim...
