j&ltrtioas. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 2 August 1862

Selections. From the Atlantic Monthly Magazine. | The Fruits of Free Labor in the Smaller j Islands of the British West Indies. (Concluded.) Leeward Island.<*. Antigua was almost the first of the British West Indies to emancipate her slaves, and this she had the wisdom to do summarily and at once, without probation or apprenticeship. The consequences have been most happy. She has escaped the vexations and heart-burnings of the other colonies, and has established a better relation between employers and employed. With a small area, a soil not very j rich, and a climate not especially adapted to sugar-growing-, she has notwithstanding taken a prominent position among the West India Islands. The prosperity of the island under free labor has been most encouraging. Of the 70,000 acres, 38,000 are owned by large proprietors, whose estates average 320 acres each. Its only export, with the exception of a littlo arrowroot, is sugar; of this, the largest crop on record (20,000 hogsh...

THE PACIFIC APPEAL. SAN FRANCISCO: [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 2 August 1862

THE PACIFIC APPEAL. SAN FRANCISCO: SATURDAY, AUGUST 2, 18R2. Our readors will please excuse our want of variety in this week's paper : we are so filled with joy in view of the future which is now dawning on our hitherto benighted prospects, that we have scarcely room in our mind for anything else. We feel that there is some happiness yet in store for us : our countrymen are repenting of the great sin' they have committed against us for centuries, and the good time is coming when the colored American will be recognized as one of the free institutions of the laud ; when it will no longer be a disgrace to own 'that we have African blood in our veins. ftow that our celebration is over, and we have commemorated with "prayer, thanksgiving and rejoicing," the first act of justice which our government has awarded us, we will have time and opportunity to pay attention to our local affairs. The right , of testimony demands our first care. We must organize our Committees in every county of the...

The Celebration. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 2 August 1862

The Celebration. Never in the annals of our recollection has there been a celebration by Colored persons equal to the one at Hayes' Park yesterday. The day was all that could be desired; it opened with one of those bright sunshiny mornings peculiar to our California climate. The people, at an early hojir, commenced arriving at the Park, all in fine spirits and prepared to enjoy this, our gala-day. The cars commenced running at 9 A. M., and continued till a late hour in the evening, filled with people prepared to enjoy the Festival. On the arrival of the 12 o'clock car, containing the children and others, a national salute of 34 guns Avas fired, on the grounds. While the children entered the Hall in procession, the band discoursed excellent music, being, at the same time, very appropriate. Amidst the stirring sounds and display of beautiful emblems, we were often reminded of the words— " Our country, 'tis of thee. Sweet land of liberty, Of thee we sing." The Hall at the Park, was dee...

Correspondence. Carson City, July 24, 18(12. Mr. Editor—lt becomes my painful duty! to relate a most villainous and very deplorable murder in this city. Our friend J. J. Underwood was murdered about o'clock on the morning of the Kith inst., by one Charles Butler, who had been keeping a boot-blacking stand in front of Mr. Underwood's barber-shop, some three or four days before the said event. They had had a quarrel, on account of ButlerV inattention to business. It was a frivolous a Hair, and, as I understood it, they had settled the matter, for I had talked with them both about the affair. Hut, on the morning of the 16th inst., Butler stationed himself on the street, where Mr. Underwood had to pass, in going from his lodging to his place of business, and made an attack on him. Mr. Underwood, not expecting anything of the kind, and not being able to defend himself, tried to go out of the way, and ran towards his shop, and was followed up by Butler, who shot at him three times : the t...
