Notes of Travel in Hayti. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 30 August 1862

Notes of Travel in Hayti. l)r. John li. Smith lectured at the Masonic Hall on Tuesday evening, Bth inst., on his travels tn Hayti. He described the people, soil, climate and resources of the country, telling some things that were plausible and others that were not. Dr. Smith informed 11s that he landed at Anx Oayes, from which point he traveled into different parts of the Island ; saw vessels from America, England and France loading with coffee and logwood ; had a passport which designated him an American citizen : this the Haytiens scrutinized with much curiosity, lie saw some sugar mills in good condition and others in bad condition ; found the soil everywhere excellent, and thought it could be made to produce as much as that of Cuba : this was the opinion of many Haytiens. The middle of the day was hot, but the mornings and evenings were cool, and he did not feel the hea't so much there as he did in Philadelphia since his return, lie saw the finest specimens of cotton in Hayti th...

On the first of October, the first National Exhibition of Anglo-African Industry and Art will be held in the City of New York. Onr mechanics and artisans in every A'ee State are making extensive preparations to be represented on the occasion. What preparations are making here? California will be expected to send something. We have mechanics and artizans in every county in this State. Let them be incited to contribute specimens of their skill and ingenuity. There arc also many who do not work at their trades in this section of our country : they, too, should be active in endeavoring to get up something suitable to exhibit on the occasion.

ffiommuttifations. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 30 August 1862

ffiommuttifations. For the Pacific Appeal. The Dawn of Emancipation. BY E. R. J. The most reliable dispatches which flash across the wires of the Continental Telegraph confirm the report relative to the desperation and insubordination of the people in the seceding States. They are very vituperative of the Federal Government. They declare their determination never to unite with the North again. If they are whipped in their armies they will retire to their mountain fastnesses, whence they will issue in banditti, and murder, plunder and destroy the lives and property of all who support the Union cause. They aver their intention is to fight until their last man is dead. Some of their most effective regiments consist of colored men, who have displayed their valor and capacity on the battle-field. Our Government cherish the prejudice against color with a greater degree of virulence and tenacity than they do life itself. Their negro hate has cost them a sacrifice of many thousand precious ...

Valuable Testimony. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 30 August 1862

Valuable Testimony. A well-known citizen of New York, in the army, writes (says the Evening Post) as follows, under date of May 29th. Since I have come South, my views in reference to the negroes have been very much modified. I am convinced that they are not afflicted with the disease of laziness more than their white brethren—only give them an object for which to labor. I am now visiting on a plantation where the few negroes that are on it have had neither overseer or master for the last three months; and they have planted as much corn, and potatoes, and rice as the same number of white men would have done with the same means ; for, till lately, they had neither horse, mule nor plough. All the first cultivation was done by hand, and with the hoe. They have now been furnished with a horse and a mule, I believe, by the government. They are working most faithfully day by" day, No Northern farmers are at work earlier in the morning or later in the evening. I am an early riser, and when...

Black Bravery. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 30 August 1862

Black Bravery. Whether colored men can fight is a question of some interest to us at this time, when our army has been thinned considerably, and government has called for 300,000 additional volunteers, and when the Southern climate, so hard upon our brave youth, is as pleasant as Paradise could be to the black race. Some persons contend that colored men cannot fight, and, with the positiveness of presumptuous and perfect ignorance, laugh at the mere thought of converting negroes into soldiers. It is a joke to them, and a black joke to boot. We shall not say that they are not correct in their views, because it is possible that the colored race may have deteriorated since our revolutionary age, as in that age they did fight well, and on some occasions as bravely as the bravest of white men. There are some facts in the history of our patriotic sister State of Rhode Island, which very forcibly illustrate the position that bravery, like affection, "dwells in blacks and whites the same." ...

She gciuf. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 30 August 1862

She gciuf. Horace Greeley has written a letter to the President, urging him to a more prompt enforcement of the Confiscation Bill. The President defines his position as anti-radi-cal, and says : "My paramount object, in this struggle, is to save the Union, and not to save or destroy slavery. If I could save the Union without freeing any slaves I would do it, or if I could save it by freeing all the slaves I would do it," &c. If I could also, by freeing them in some States, and leaving other States alone, I would also do that. What I do about slavery and the colored race, I do because I believe it helps the Union. I shall do less whenever I can believe what I am doing hurts the cause : I shall do more whenever I shall believe that doing more shall help the cause. I shall try to correct errors when shown to be errors, and shall adopt new views as fast as they appear to be true views." The Provost Marshal General at Louis, Aug. 28, emancipated about a dozen negroes belongin...

pissceUattfOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 30 August 1862

pissceUattfOUS. Rules for Young Men. The world estimates men by their success in life, and, by general consent, success is evidence of superiority. Never, under any circumstonces, assume a responsibility you can avoid consistently with your duty to yourself and others. Base all your actions upon a principle of right; preserve your integrity of character, and in doing this never reckon the cost. Remember that self-interest is more likely to wrap your judgment than all other circumstances combined ; therefore look well to your duty when your interest is concerned. Never make money at the expence of your reputation. Be neither lavish nor niggardly ; of the two avoid the latter. A mean man is universally despised, but public favor is a stepping-stone to preferment, —therefore generous feeling should bo cultivated. , Let your expenses he such as to leave a balance in your pocket. Ready money is a friend in need. Keep clear of the law ; for even if you gain the case, you are generally los...

Selections. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 6 September 1862

Selections. Robt J. Walker has issued his 2d letter in favor of the emancipation policy of the President in the border States. It is mostly of a financial and statistical character, and shows, by the census Reports, that if Maryland had adopted this policy in 1790, she would now contain a population ot 1,755,000 instead of 687,000, and Baltimore 542,050, instead of 212,000.

The Late Congress. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 6 September 1862

The Late Congress. From the New York Weekly Tribune, in an article under the head of "The XXXVIIth Congress and its Acts," we extract the following: The Acts which it has passed relating to the army and navy, have no precedent, in regard to their variety and importance, in the previous legislation of this country, and can hardly be matched by that of any nation on earth. The immense armies created by its laws, the splendid navy it has set afloat, the improvements it has initiated in both branches of the service, the enormous monetary resources it has developed to sustain this gigantic war, arc the wonder of cotemporary States, and will fill posterity with admiration. See the great work it has done on the subject of Slavery—and done, too, so cautiously and considerately. It has prohibited the existence of Slavery in all the present and future Territories of the Republic, thus by one short but comprehensive statute closing up a long and bitter controversy, and, by an irrevocable decre...

The Election [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 6 September 1862

The Election THE" PACIFIC APPEAL. SAN FRANCISCO: SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 1862. As the election has passed, all eyes are] directed to the complexion of the next legislature. The Union Administration ticket will have a clear majority in both branches of the legislature, which secures aU. S. Senator friendly to the Administration and Freedom, and progress in the affairs of the »a. tion. ' The most important matter relating to us in this State, to be attended to at the nfcxt sessiou, is the repeal ol the unjust statutes. The members elect from this county are composed of intelligent and lib-eral-minded men, and, as in this county, so with all the other delegates that are elected on the Union Administration ticket. We have every reason to expect that the incoming legislature will be a loyal, judicious, thorough-going body of men. Last year the defeat of our bill was more from the political complexion of the Senate, than from a want of energy on the part of our friends. We should be active...
