OBATION [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 23 August 1862
OBATION 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 Ist, 1862. (concluded.) It is the begining of the end of an institution (slavery) that affects the interest of every white Ameriean, directly or indirectly. An institution that has muffled the American pulpit, trammeled the J public press and suppressed free speech. .It has degraded free lfibor —reducing its vetaries to a level with the lowest condition'of human society. It is the beginning of the end of a system that for the last quarter of a century has bred political strife in the counsel halls of the Nation ; to be arbitrated with weapons of blood in the sacred chambers of civil.legislation ; the end of a system that was blotting out the pommon instincts of humanity, with the American people, towards' a race, whose ancestors they dragged from their native land, 'to this countr...
Teeming Events. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 23 August 1862
Teeming Events. THE PACIFIC APPEAL. SAN FRANCISCO : SATURDAY, AUGUST 23, 1862. All over the American continent the signs of the times are pregnant with great events. The war in the East is still being waged. Accounts of desperate battles are, at intervals, flashed over the continent with lightning speed, announcing, in detail, the numbers slain on either side. Observers in the eastern hemisphere, who look on the deadly strife, can see the causes and solve the problem with greater facility than those at our far distance from the immediate scenes of turmoil. Proclamations have been issued by generals, and then revoked by their superiors, or modified in a manner to make them inoperative. Confiscation bills have been passed, and more troops called for, and regiments enrolled and disbanded, and others enrolled again, and with new lpvics the tide of war increases, while generals with their armies make strategic movements that nonplus the public. • The question is, What is this equivocatio...

CORRESPONDE S|CE. Horsetown, August 13th, 1862. Mr Editor—l received yours of the sth, and also the copies of the Appeal, with which I was much pleased, and hope that it may be well sustained. lu answer to yours I can say that I hold it to be a duty to try and assist such enterprises, and therefore will readily promise to contribute somethiug, if it is acceptable. If you think it advisable, I will endeavor in a series of short articles, continued from week to week, to take a brief glimpse at the past history, present condition, and future prospects of the Negro race. Or perhaps it will be better to omit the first point, and treat only of the present condition and future prospects. Please let me know if it will be acceptable ; if it will, 1 will commence immediately. It is but fair to say, that I shall probably indicate what I conceive to be the duty of our portion of the race under tiie circumstances, and believing our condition in the United States to be the worst that men ever hav...

Communications. For the Pacific Appeal. The Pleasures of Single Life. by E. K. J. Charles Threewill was endowed by na" ture with a healthy physical organism. He was good natured, generous aud benevolent. He had enjoyed the advantages of a liberal education, under the fostering care of indulgent parents. At the age of sixteen he entered upon the social pleasures of life, being surrounded by friends and admirers among the youth of both sexes. His modest and unassuming deportment were household words. His studious habits and enlightened education, blended with a prepossessing disposition, excited emotions of pleasure in many a tond heart, which in secret meditation indulged iu the hope that some kind fairy would convey the enchantment to their anxious and confiding spirit. The dear mothers also claimed the young man as a favorite. They saw much in Charles that was amiable, and they cautiously intimated that it would be a fortunate epoch if Cupid would send his barbed arrow, quivering i...

Masonic, Odd Fellow and other Items from the Arielc-African. irurn tut; /iLiigiu-Aix'iuaii. Affairs About Boston.—Mr. Editor—Last Monday evening, at the meeting of the Prince Hall Grand Lodge, of Boston, a lively discussion was held relative to a series of resolutions offered by Lewis Hayden, Esq. Mr. Hayden, during his speech sustaining the resolutions, said—" I offered the resolution for the expurgation from the ritual of the word 'free born,' and substituting 'free man,' for the reasons : Ist. Because it was not a part 1 of freemasonry originally. 2d. Because it strikes at the foundation upon which the institution is said to be founded, it being that of common brotherhood, and the denial of which gives aid and comfort to Human Slavery, in that it admits that man can be otherwise burn than free. I have said that the word freeborn was not a part of Free Masonry originally, j say this from the fact that the Israelites, a people doomed to perpetual slavery, were Masons while in that ...

Emancipation Meeting at Rochester. A large and enthusiastic meeting of the colored citizens of Rochester was recently held in Zion's Church, to give expression to their views and feelings in regard to the recent act of the Federal Government in abolishing slavery in the District of Columbia.

Selections. Quite a stir has been created in the King's county (N. Y.) Medical Society, by the proposed admission, as a member, of a colored physician — Dr. Rae. The fact of the M. D. being a negro was not known until the balloting took place, and the committee appointed to investigate his stonding, qualification, &amp;c.. had not been informed of the fact ; so when the announcement was made, a majority of the society indignantly refused to admit him. For tlie Pacific Appeal. Fort Ter Waw, .July 10, 1862. Mr. Eihtor —The colonization of the blacks in Africa is not an idle, impracticable scheme, as some would make it appear; but it takes a fast hold upon our sympathies, and perfectly agrees with our noblest sense of right, justice and interest. Its feasibility lias been proved by the experiment at Liberia, even beyond the most sanguine hopes of its patriotic founders. The corner-stone having thus been successfully laid, it only remains to complete the superstructure. In order...
The Liberian Republic. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 30 August 1862
The Liberian Republic. The first settlement was commenced at Cape Montserrado, now the city of Monrovia, April 25th, 1822. Other colonies followed, when, in 1830, they were merged into a commonwealth. July 26,1847, independence was declared and a Republic formed, which has since been self-sustain-ing, waving its flag- of liberty over a happy people. All the officers of the Government are colored men, and are chosen or appointed from among themselves. Its population consists of about 10,000 American-born persons of color, 5,000 assimilated and civilized Africans, and several hundred thousand natives who are subject to its jurisdiction and laws. The English language prevails, churches of the prominent denominations abound, and common and seminaries are not wanting. A college building has been completed, at a cost of $20,000, and a well qualified faculty selected. Domestic slavery is prohibited, and the slave trade forbidden, under penalty of death. Its territory has been equitably pur...
