(Coramumrtttions, [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 9 August 1862
(Coramumrtttions, For the Pacitlc Appeal. Our California Poet. Among the noticeable features of the fimt of August, was the original poem read byyl. Madison Bell. The whitenian has said that the pages of Poetry have never been embellished by the genius and erudition of colored men. That they did not possess the capabilities of enriching that department of learning. This poctic effort has demonstrated the fallacy of that statement. What a terrible commentary upon the Peculiar Institution. A man born under its blighting shadow, rising above it, initiating influences demonstrating to our enemies that the colored man has powers and attributes of mind equal to the more favored race. Great judgment is evinced in the illustrations, while for terseness of style, depth and originality of thought, and pureness of diction, it is not excelled by any living An-glo-African Poet. Burning sarcasm and thundering philipics are hurled against the minions and myrmidons of oppression. The immortal state...

Bv Telegraph. Washington, Aug. 6. —The special dispatch to the New York*papers states that a delegation of Western men, including two Senators, made an offer of certain negro regiments to the President, yesterday, to which offer the President replied that he had decided not to arm negroes, but would accept as many as offered as laborers. This is understood to be the settled policy of the Government. This refusal excites surprise among parties interested in Gen. Jim Lane's plans, as he stated positively, before leaving, that the Administration understood his intention of .enlisting negroes in Kansas. Latest advices from Sperryville say that prisoners continue to be brought in from Madison. Loyal blacks are coming into our lines in great numbers, from the direction of Stannardsville. They are rep resented as a very superior class and will make excellent teamsters. A 'scouting party yesterday found between twenty and thirty negroes, in irons, twelve miles from Madison, nearly in a star...

Selections. ORATION ON EMANCIPATION IN THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, THE PROHIBITION OF SLAVERY IN THE FEDERAL TERRITORIES, AND EMANCIPATION IN THE BRITISH WEST INDIES. DELIVERED BY REV. J. J. MOORE, San Francisco, August 1st, 1862. Ladies and Gentlemem. and Fellow-Cit-izens : —Scarcely has subsided the echoes of the shouts of jubilant millions of a Nation, commemorating its liberty's birthday, written in the memory of the Blood of their fathers, when public sentiment requires us to honor, by popular demonstration, the same hallowed subject, involved in recent events of general interest that have fallen out in our country's history. For the last twenty years, I have had the pleasure of participating in such or such-like demonstrations as the present ; and sometimes I have had the honor of consenting lo assume the responsibility of my present position ; but in no instance, have I been impressed with the weight of my responsibility equally to the present; —peculiarly so at present, becaus...
Change of Sentiment. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 16 August 1862
Change of Sentiment. TRW PACIFIC APPEAL. SAN FK AN CISCO : SATURDAY, AUGUST 16, 1862. In every State in the Union public opinion has undergone a visible change, and the merits of the Colored American are being more seriously entertained and discussed. In California, Oregon and Washington Territory we seldom hear of the outrages that were constantly perpetrated upon our defenseless race. All political parties with one exception, the Breckenridge Dem ocraey, have recently organized upon principles more in accordance with the spirit of the age—Human Progress and Universal Freedom. We have grounds to hope that the next Legislature will be composed of members who will act in accordance with public opinion, by repealing the statutes which disqualify us from testifying in civil and criminal cases, in common with all other men. It is clearly demonstrated that the colored people who have migrated to this State are not the ignorant-worthless-idling-sort-of creatures whom our pro&gt;sl...

Communications. Tor tin- mm A |&gt;|)('iil. Freedom Marching On. BY K. K. 3. When the war broke out, Colored men expressed their loyalty wherever the Federal Government was supreme. They assembled in every city, town and hamlet, and with a true devotion for liberty and the preservation of the Union, offered to buckle on their knapsack and to encounter the perils that awaited them. I was honored with a call to preside over a large and enthusiastic meeting 1 in New Bedford, at the City Hall. Patriotic speeches were made and appropriate resolutions were passed, and the Company roll was soon filled, comprising many of our best men who were ready to march at a moment's warning. We sent a petition to Governor Andrew and asked to be enrolled With the Militia. The Governor in his reply' stated that he had 110 power to grant our petition. The pro-slavery press was exultant over our disappointment: they assured us that it was the white man's war, and that they could easily subdue the ...

Uw New enlistments in the Border States are quite encouraging. Maryland probably will fill half her quotas under the first call. This is more than was expected. The militia will be drafted. The delegation from Delaware are strong in the belief that if more time were afforded, both quotas would be filled by volunteers.

Lord Brougham ox his Black Hobby.— , Lord Brougham has been in his glory this week, for he lias had an opportunity of riding his anti-slavery hobby to a great extent. He has presided at a large meeting convened for the condemnation of the slave trade, and this gave him a splendid opportunity of castigating Spain. Last night he presided at a banquet given in honor of his Excellency, the Negro President of Liberia, Mr. Stephen Allen Benson, at which banquet, the ex-President of Liberia, Mr. Roberts, was also present. Lord Brougham, after praising the energy a.nd perseverance displayed by the negro republic, paid a very handsome compliment to the party in the United States who have assisted so much in securing its success, and specially praised Mr. Lincoln's government for its recognition ...
