l [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 2 August 1862
l For the Pacific Appeal, My Mother's Sentiments. BY M. K. REED, OF PETaLIMA. 1. A little stream that is never dry, When summer suns are glowing, That when the wintry storm sweeps by, Is never overflowing. Such is the wealth that I implore, And God has given me such and more. 2. Daughter more excellent thaa fair, A son not great but good ; A house for comfort, not too small, Nor large enough for pride, A garden and a garden wall, A little brook beside. 3. In these I have so swees a home. A little land to graze my cow. Whose milk supplies my table, A warm sty for my good old sow. All have there space for food and play, And all are glad, both I and they. 4. I feed the poor man in his cot, The beggar at my gate; And thankful for my quiet lot., I envy not the great; But rather praise my Cod on high : Happy to live, prepared to die.

frtwtions. Negrophobia. The Pacific Echo, published at Napa, and said to be a secesh paper, in *an article headed " For White Men," comments thus on an extract from a speech by J. Sella Martin. For Whitr Men.—The Philadelphia Ledger speaks of a celebration over the emancipation of slavery in the District of Columbia, by a mixed crowdof whites and blacks, and gives the following remarks from one of their noted speakers : Rev. J. Sella Martin, a young colored minister from Boston, spoke at some length. He was glad to unite in the celebration which was to commemorate the isolation of slavery in the District of Columbia. This was one step taken by the nation towards justice. It might be the beacon light on which to hope that hereafter property in a man will not .be recognized. He hoped that soon the Government would be able to " proclaim liberty throughout the land, and to all the inhabitants thereof." Viewed in itself, the liberation of a few hundred bondsmen would not appear to be muc...

J&amp;lwtwmsi. From the New York Ind&lt; pendent. The Nation's Opportunity:—A Theme for Independence Day. BY HOKACE OREELY. For the past eighty-six years of our National existence, the legalization of Human Slavery in our country has been our standing reproach, onr chronic weakness, and our greatest peril. Republicanism has been shamed and liberal institutions subjected to unjust discredit, because of the flagrant contradiction between our fundamental principles and what were accounted our Naitional practices. The champions of monarchy, the apologists of venerable injustice and moss-grown abuse, who from time to time Came among us to spy out the nakedness of the land, while they found much food for detraction in the coarseness of our manners, the vulgarity of our habits, the rudeness of our ways of living, settled at last upon the one flagrant, undeniable blot of Slavery as the theme of their fiercest and most damaging invectives. " Why, look here, laborers of Europe...
THE PACIFIC APPEAL. SAN FRANCISCO: [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 9 August 1862
THE PACIFIC APPEAL. SAN FRANCISCO: SATURDAY, AUGUST 9, 1862. The columns of this paper will, in future, be open to the pens of our most able writers. It has been, and will continue to be, the intention of the publisher to make the Pacific Appeal the standard paper ol our people—a vehicle for general informatiou, and a proper medium for the concentration of all the available talent that has long been slumbering on the Pacific shores, for the want of a liberally con. ■ ducted sheet through which to show it forth to the world in its unalloyed beautyThe necessity for the establishment of a weekly paper among us has long been felt, and the propriety of sustaining it in this community must be apparent to all, and this sontiment has induced us to commence this enterprise, confident of approbation and help. If it is deemed worthy of support, the united efforts of our whole people are invoked. On our own part, we shall spare neither time, patience, energy or expense in endeavoring to make th...
3 The Committee of Arrangements [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 9 August 1862
3 The Committee of Arrangements For our Celebration, which took place on the Ist of August, met on Tuesday evening last, in Mr. Sanderson's school room, to consider the expenses incurred. All bills that were presented were promptly paid, and the surplus, if any, will be accounted for in the Treasurer's Report, which will be published in the Pacific Appeai, as soon as completed. There will not be enough left, however, to raise a contention, as the expenses incurred to make it a celebration in accordance with the extraordinary events for which it was held, was nearly as great as the receipts. The Committee spared no paius or expense in presenting every feature with refined taste and superior judgment. The twenty-five members of the committee included some of our best men, and their management of the celebration certainly reflects the highest credit upon our whole people ; at least,«they deserve the thanks of all that were particpants 011 the occasion.

lioss of the Steamship Golden Gate. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 9 August 1862
lioss of the Steamship Golden Gate. The burning of this magnificent steamer and the loss of life in consequence, has caused a deep gloom in our community. The anxious inquiry by those who had friends on'board the ill-fated vessel, is answered by melancholy details contained in the published reports, in all the daily papers. Among those lost we notice a number of Colored persons — our acquaintances. Charles Miller, John Peterson, well known in this city for their industry, H. W. Bracey of Marysville, and several others that were employees on the ship. Their loss is deplored by a large circle of friends in this city and State. We may add still further to this list, John B. Johnson and Samuel Burris, also of this city. Mr. Mathewson, the steward, and the greater number of the waiters in the cabin, are among the saved. F. G. Barbadoes.— In the limited time allowed us forgetting up the proceedings, for our last issue, of the late Celebration af Hayes'Park, August Ist, we unintentionally ...

Letter of Declination. Weaverville, Trinity co, Aug. 4, 1862.

Yours truly, W. 11. Focte.

l [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 9 August 1862
l For the Pacific Appeal. BY M. K. REED, OF PETALUMA. Past the Hour. Sure, I 'v(£ sought the gate so long, E'en the hedges know me ; Birds laugh at me in their song, Streams reflect and show me ! Not a flower that smiles so sweet Seems my grief to soften ; E'eu the meadows hate my feet, I 've been there so often. But if ere I pass this way, Meet me at some future day ; May I ? Hush ! Yet stay —yet stay ! Don't I hear her coming ? Coming ? Np ! 'Twas but the trees ! 1 do not hear her coming : E'en the very wasps and bees Mock me with their humming ! Vowed she not, by all that's just, All that's true, she'd meet me ? And is it thus she breaks her trust, Thus she strives to meet me ? But if e'er again I'm cast In such meshes as the past, May I—'tis her step at last! Now indeed she's coming! Omy love! my life's uelight! Treasure of my being! All my sorrows take to flight, Thee, my sweet one, seeing! Yet how couldst thou keep me here, Heart and spirit failing ? How ? But no—we 'ell have ...
