Eastern Items Compiled and Condensed from the Anglo-African. UVUi KUW AVMM* The rite of confirmation was performed in St. Philip's Church, N. Y., on the 2d of April, by the Rt. Rev. Bishop Potter, assisted by Wm. L. Morris, D. D., late minister in charge of that congregation, and Rev.Wm. J. Alston, pastor of the Church. Eighteen candidates were confirmed. The Old Mutual Relief Society cele brated the fifty-second anniversary on the 25th of March. The exercises were diversified. The usual Oration was omited, but we know the Annual Address of the President, Rev. C. B. Ray, was a very good substitute. Extracts from orations delivered before the Society by Mr. John Teasaman and Rev. Peter Williams, in the year 1810—'11 were read by Messrs. J. J. Zuille and John Peterson; singing and performances on the piano, by Misses C. E. Ray, F. Clark, M. R. Lyons, L. &amp; J. Voglesang, daughters of Rev. C. B. Ray; Messrs. E. V. Clark, A.

Moore will act as City Agent and Carrier. Our Agents will please collect for the month of June, and remit as speedily as possible. The great question which now excites the civilized world, and commands the attention of Governments and Peoples, is the future destiny of the African race on this continent. Stocks rise and fall on the Parisian Bourse ; Consols fluctuate on London 'Change ; the struggle of European nationalities ceases for awhile ; Kossuth and Garibaldi almost forget Hungary and Italy, and watch with eagerness the progress of liberal ideas in America ; the Czar of Russia scarcely thinks now of the " sick man" who, not long since, excited his fears and jealousies ; even Ireland is quiet under English rule and oppression, and the mighty Thunderer of Printing House Square can find no more important topic for a hea...

Communications. For the Pacific Appeal. Just Legislation, Mr. Editor The Colored People of this Country have recently been made to rejoice, in view of the humane but longdeferred legislation in Congress, which has given freedom to three thousand human beings; and Massachusetts, my native State, has good reason to feel proud of the triumphant result of the labors of her Senators in bringing about this important movement. Gen. Wilson first introduced the bill, and urged its passage in one of the most telling speeches ever delivered before that body. I have enjoyed an acquaintance with Mr. Wilson for many years, and have had the pleasure of addressing by invitation, a large public meeting, called by the Mayor of our City, in company with this distinguished philanthropist, to protest against the infamous Fugitive Slave Bill. We will revere his name. His eloquent appeal in our behalf will gladden the hearts of millions in our own land. In his straight-forward, matter-of-fact speech, he s...

£tttttion&amp; Out From the House of Bondage tap For Prospectus and Contents see last page. | ' - BY HORACE GREBLY. j • Along a frontier of some two thousand miles, where the soldiers of the Republic are facing the dupes and victims of SlavehoMing Treason, the angel of Liberty has for the first time -opened the door of many a poor man's prison. Men who J have worn out their lives in unrequited i toil on some taskmaster's farm or planta--1 tion are astonished, on waking some morning, to find the oppressor flea in conscious guilt before the advancing, triumphi " ant legions of the Nation, and no one left behind to counsel their further labor or dole out the course and scanty food whereby their lives have been thus far sustained. Practically, inevitably, by * the operation of causes which he did not incite and could not control, each of these late bondman finds himself suddenly free —not merely enabled but compelled to I act as though " life, liberty, and the pur- , suit of hap...
Spain on Slavery in her Depenoien, and on the Slave Trade. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 28 June 1862
Spain on Slavery in her Depenoien, and on the Slave Trade. A writer in the London Quarterly, speaking of San Domingo, as again a colony of Spain, says : " The Spanish Government has given the most satisfactory pledges that slavery shall not be reintroduced. Indeed, th« reintroduction of slavery into the recent acquisition of the Spanish crown, is moral- ly impossible. A special enactment of the Cortes would be necessary to legalize it, and opinion in Spain would not tianction the act.'' ' The Prime Minister, 011 a recent occasion, emphatically declared that the ptablic opinion of his country had been pronounced 1 ' decidedly against the slave trade, and that his government'was udirig its be«t endeavors to put an end to it.'* r: t„
A Francis Datcher. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 28 June 1862
A Francis Datcher. Nothing indicates innate dignity and self-respect more 'than a regard for the verdict of those who come after . us. Many things may make an ignobly man desire the approbation of his contemporaries., and take paths to conserve it. The very selfishness that demeans liim, makes it his interest to stand well with those upon whom his gains or indulgeucies depend. Bat when, in the faithful discharge of duties too humble to extract public praise, a man carefully lays up cause for grateful or respectful remembrance when he is gone, there is argumont of nobility in his coarse. Such an instance has come to light in the case of Francis Datcher, a negro, for many years a messenger in the YVar Department, who died last month in Washington. A couple of months ago, In- entrusted to a ' gentleman connected with the New York press a parchment, which was his chiefest treasure, with the injunction that upon his ; death it should he made public. This sheet is covered with certificate...
THE PACIFIC APPEAL. SAN FRANCISCO: [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 28 June 1862
THE PACIFIC APPEAL. SAN FRANCISCO: SATURDAY, JUNK 98, 1868. The Appeal can be had at J. W. Sullivan's News Depot, near the Post Office. Cjty Agent.—Mr. John F. Moore will act M City Agent and Carrier. JQT Our Agents will please collect for the BOUth of June, and remit as speedily as possible. The North has always been cursed with a class of politicians nick-named, by the late John Randolph, of Roanoke, " Doughfaces," or as they are more appropriately called " Northern men with Southern principles." In former years this class of men generally belonged to the Democratic party, though a Whig would occasionally become infectcd with the disease, until finally it became epidemic. Every prominent politician of the North, who sought for place and power, was willing to sacrifice conscience, principle, everything, and bow down before the Dagon of slavery. Even the Great Daniel Webster, the man who was u Born for the universe, but narrowed his mind, And the party gave up what was meant for man...
Communications. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 28 June 1862
Communications. For the Pacific Appeal. I The approaching "Ist of August" suggests to every one of our race some very pleasing thoughts in relation to our history and hopes. But there is still another subject to increase still higher our gratitude to God, and our warmest appreciation of the times—the lirst great American act, in our time : the abolition of Slavery in the District of Columbia. Many other sections of the Union have already given full expression to their feelings, and shall we, in this favored land, be less alive to our cause ?— Could you, as I do, feel how much there is i to be thankful for, you would eagerly seize the first opportunity to offer up our united gratitude to God, and our heartfelt thanks to those fearless patriots who dared the right in preference to policy. The District of Columbia free! The thought astounds me, when I look back 30 years ago, when the representatives of foreign courts used daily to witness gangs of manacled slaves driven through the cit...
Our Victoria Correspondence. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 28 June 1862
Our Victoria Correspondence. Victoria, V. I. June 11, 18(52. The cry is, " Still they come." The arrivals here of stalwart men, both from Great Britain and the, Canadas, have been numerous, since 1 last wrote to you; maiiy, no doubt, having built golden castles in the air, while others have allowed their imaginations to roam over the broad acres they hope to possess and the lowing of cattle, the neigh of the steed, the bah-ing of the sheep, the grunt of the swine, and the crowing of the cock, are already music to their earn. May their hopes be realized, and their expectations fulfilled. In many cases they will be, but like all human undertakings, some will Vie doomed to disap-j pointment. There is considerable interest Being manifested at home about these colonies. In-j deed, from the tone of the English press, there is an excitement there that may carry the unweary too flit, and the ignorant into grievous errors. "All is not gold that glitters," and however bright and shining our p...
