JSfUctiims. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 19 July 1862

JSfUctiims. J6SF* For Prospectus and Contents see last page. From the Atlantic Monthly Magazine. The Fruits of Free Labor in the Smaller Islands of the British West Indies. (Continued.) The truth is, however, that, owing to the crowded population of Barbadoes, the planters have had everything in their oVli hands, much more than in other islands. In Trindad or British Guiana the negroes were not obliged by competition to submit to the obnoxious tenure ; and they soon found, where land was so cheap, that a path to independence lay open before them in working their own little properties. The planters became more stubborn and more rigid, and the result was in many cases the absolute abandonment of large estates for want of labor. The industry of the Barbadoes population is shown in the fact, that, out of the 106,000 acres of the island, 100,000 are under cultivation,* while the average price of land rises to the unprecedented height of five hundred dollars an acre. Notwithstanding the h...

An Interesting Case of a Freed Slave Girl. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 19 July 1862

An Interesting Case of a Freed Slave Girl. The Boston Trawler furnishes the following narrative of one of the phases of life among the F. F.'s in Virginia. There is now living at Yorktown (Va.) a wealthy young lady of is, named Griffin, who has straight brown hair, clear blue eyes, a fair skin, and as fine Caucasian features as any woman that ever was born be. neath a Northern sky. And vet this young woman was the daughter of a slave, and hut for the will of her father, Robert Anderson, which freed her from bondage and gave her a fortune, she would still be a slave, liable to be bought aud sold, like any other bondwoman in the 8011 th, though with her spirit and education it is certain she would not submit to ii. What is still more singular about the matter is, that under the will, and by the laws of Virginia, this youi\g woman is the absolute owner of her mother and two younger sisters. One of the little sisters has long Jlaxen ringlets and light blue eyes, but the other sister and...

THE PACIFIC APPEAL. SAN FRANCISCO : [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 19 July 1862

THE PACIFIC APPEAL. SAN FRANCISCO : SATURDAY, JULY 19, 1862. Events of import crowd thick and fast upon us. The news of the past week is of thrilling interest. The dirt of McClellan's week of battles has scarcely subsided, and we are not yet able to decide whether it was victory or defeat, a strutegetical movement or forced change of ground, when the rumor reaches us, that the leaders of the Southern movement have determined on a new programme. "It is said that the new policy is, to fight as long as it is possible to do so, but when they can do so 110 longer, instead of surrendering and having their property confiscated and themselves disfranchised, the leaders will make a direct proposition to either France or England to be riiade a colony or appendage." That such may be the policy of the Southern leaders we are ready to believe, but wo are doubtful whether either England or France would accept the protectorate of the Confederacy if offered. Notwithstanding the apparent friendly al...

Ptewltanwms. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 19 July 1862

Miscellaneous. Joys of Contrabands. A gentleman recently returned from Newborn relates the incidents connected with the meeting of two contrabands, husband and wife, who had been separated for some time. They were on a road near Newborn, each with ox teams. As they approached, the husband discovered his wife and gave a loud "guffaw." He then dismounted and commenced to sing. Then he turned summersaults, and finally stood bolt upright on his head and for several minutes knocked his feet together. He went through with these performances for some time, all the while singing vigorously. The wife was less ecstatic. As she expressed it she was so "discomfused" she didn't know what to dn. They finally commenced talking, and went on their way rejoicing.—Providencer. Journal. A Colored Soldier at Bull Run.—When Governor Sprague's battery was about to leave Providence for Washington a few months ago, the officers wished to engage the services of a colored citizen of that State, as a servant. ...

A verdant Olive Branch of peace, Upon our pillow's rest. Flinging its graceful odors round, Before we sink to rest. 3. A kindly wish that each may dwell In undisturbed repose, Until the morn her robe of light Round every sleeper throws. 4. Then scorn not thou this little word Of peace and amity, It is a link in love's bright chain, How small so e'er it be. Yaundry. Sonoma, July 17th.

JSdrrtums. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 19 July 1862

JSdrrtums. Emancipation.—The question of emancipating their slaves is being freely discussed in the States of Delaware, Maryland, Kentucky and Missouri, and the propriety of accepting or rejecting the proposition of Congress to purchase their slaves is likely to be the leading issue in the next eleetion. They recognize it as a very liberal offer on the part of the Government—it is altogether too liberal—and should any of those States accept the offer, before the resolution is rescinded, the Government would be bound in honor to pay them the value of their slaves. Delaware is almost certain to accept the proposition, and take measures to emancipate her slaves ; but the proposition meets with great opposition in the other border States, and no opinion can at present be formed as to how the vote will stand. It is probable they will hang on to "the institution" until all the slaves of any value are sent further south, and then conclude to emancipate, provided the Government pays a good ...

TIIE PACIFIC APPEAL. SAN FRANCISCO: SATURDAY, JI'LY 26, 1862/ The American people have been taught by the instructions of our great men, to view the Constitution of this country as an infallible instrument, as pure and faultless as the Bible ; too sacred to be touched, they considered it impious even to discuss its alteration : they thought it was to last for all time, suitable for all generations, applicable to all nations and peoples ; they forgot that what would well answer for the government of thirteen colonies, of three millions of people, might not answer equally as well when there were thirty-four States in the Union, and our population exceeded thirty millions. Then the inhabitants were homogeneous, now they are as diversified as the nations of the earth. How is it possible, then, that an organic law, which was intended for a government of limited powers, with small territory, no dependencies, but little commerce, neither army or navy, their permanency doubted without, and ...
