(Communications. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 6 September 1862

(Communications. For the Pacific Appeal. The National Controversy. ' Mr. Editor—Our present national controversy may be simply stated thus : There are three parties engaged—the North, the South and the Negro. Before God their claims are equal; each has the same interests at stake. Though now engaged in conflict most violent, North and South are agreed to ignore the negro's claims—to wrest all they can out of him : tax him without representation, give ,him no voice contemn and compel him to be passive, damage him in every way. His wrongs and sufferings are known throughout the earth, llis cries have penetrated heaven. There is a disposition to extenuate the national wickedness, by saying that the victims of it are only niggers. So it has ever been. But " God is just. His justice cannot always slecep,"' saki Jefferson History teaches that His justice is a fearful thing, when meted out to nations for their oppressions of the weak and innocent, who appeal for redress to His laws and tha...

The Negro Regiment at Port Royal. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 6 September 1862

The Negro Regiment at Port Royal. The Negro regiment, organized by Gen. Hunter at Port Royal was recently reviewed in presence of a large number of military and naval officers, who had assembled for the purpose of witnessing the novel spectacle. Of the appearance and proficiency of the regiment a correspondent of the New York Times writes : " Having been accustomed during the last fifteen months to witness the evolutions of regiments in every stage of drill and discipline, from the raw three months men, who started for Annapolis in the end of April a year ago, to the soldierly quickness and precision of the cohorts organized during the long period of inactivity 011 the Potomac, I must say for myself—and in saying so I am only echoing the opinion of every naval and military officer, without exception, who was present at the review in question—that the First South Carolina Volunteers, contraband.of war though they be, and lately subject to the rigors of the Dred Scott decision, presen...

®en-Wallace on the Negro Quesion, [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 6 September 1862

® en -Wall ac e on the Negro Quesion, On Wednesday night, Bth inst., about 11 o'clock, a number of Indianians tendered Maj.-tien. Lew. Wallace a serenade at his quarters at the National Hotel in Washington. An unusually large concourse was present on the occasion. After several national airs by the band, Gen. Wallace made his appearance upon the balcony, when he was greeted with the most enthu-' siastic cheering. In the course of a very spirited and telling speech, which was warmly applauded, Gen. Wallace, said :— I am no politician. (Cries of " Good for that," and " Don't want any now-a-days."^ Probably for a regular speech, I had been much obliged to some of my political friends if they had made it for me. ("Keep them in the dark," and laughter.) If it is expected that I am to speak on subjects of a political character to-night, I know I should have been obliged for some of them to have performed the task for me. If I touch upon them, bear me witness I speak of them not as a polit...

poetry. Weavkkvillb, Aug. 29,1862. Mr. Editor—Dear Sir : I regret, exceedingly, that you have placed me in your list of contributors, because it gives me a reputation that I am not able to sustain, and creates expectations that never can be realized. If, however, after a generous criticism, you find the enclosed, or, rather, accompanying verses, worthy an obscure corner in your paper, do me the fluttering kindness of placing them there. But, should you consider them unfit, then make such disposition of them as is general with rejected MSS. Yours, &c. W. H. Foote. For the Pacific Appeal. The Abolition of Slavery in the District of Columbia. "Where rolls Potomac's old, historic tide, And armed legions scatter o'er the lea, There stands a city by the river's side— The casket of a nation's liberty. Above that towering, antiquated dome,* Where Freedom's wings have vainly hovered long, The patient bird at last has found a home, And carols forth her wildest, sweetest song. To s...

Ik [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 6 September 1862

Ik The latest news from the seat of war in Virginia, sinee our last and up the time of our going to press, was, that Gen. Pope, at and near Manasses, 28th August, had gained a signal victory, with his combined forces, under different generals, over the rebels. 1000 prisoners were captured, many arms, and one piece of artillery. On the 29th ult., Gen. Pope fought another terrific battle with the combined forces of the enemy, lasting, with continu- ous fury, from daylight until dark, by which time the enemy were driven from the field, which the Union forces occupied. This was the identical field of Bull Run, which greatly increased the enthusiasm of our troops, who behaved splendidly. The retreating enemy were followed next day— some fighting took place, and the enemy being immensely reinforced Gen. Pope fell back on Centreville. Gen. Banks was so surrounded by the enemy that he was supposed to have burnt his ammunition trains, and to be making a junction with Gen. Pope. Gen. llalleck...

Selections. James Madison and Slaves—There is a curious passage in No. 43 of the Federalist from the pen of James Madison. "I take no notice," he says, of an unhappy species of population (the slaves) abounding in some of the States, who during the calm of regular government are sunk below the level of men, but who in the tempestuous scenes of civil "violence may emerge into the human character and give a superiority of strength to any party with which they may associate themselves." From the New York Tribune. Negroes in the Revolution. It is a suggestive fact that those who are making the noise against the employment of Blacks in our armies are almost uniformly civilians, generally of Northern or of foreign birth ; while those whose conduct they, denounce are Military men of Southern antecedents, who ought to know what negroes are good for. Gen. Fremont was born in South Carolina and educated at the South ; Gen. Hunter is a native of Delaware, brought up among negroes and still an ...

Emigration \o Hayti.—The Port-de-Paix Brigade. Oberijx, Ohio, July 4, 1862. Colored Fellow-Citizens of Ohio: I have returned from Hayti, after a residence of nine months there, for the purpose of recruiting an "Industrial Regiment" for Port-de-Paix. I have settled my first colony at Arcahaie, and all of them are now doing well. Not liking that locality myself as well as some others in that beautiful Island of our race, —llayti, " the Queen of the Antilles," —the home of our people forever, —and wishing to settle at Port-de-Paix, where a large company of my Buckeye brothers have already established themselves, I hereby give notice that I shall leave for there on the 20th of October, from New York City, with a number of my friends from Oberlin and the neighborhood. In the meantime, I will be happy to receive the names of all good, industrious men who want to join us. The Government of Hayti gives us sixteen acres of the best land iu the world— free; "without money and without price;" ...

" Look here, upon this Picture and on This." [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 13 September 1862

" Look here, upon this Picture and on This." THE PACIFIC APPEAL. SAN FRANCISCO : SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 1862. All the members of the last Legislature who voted for the Negro Testimony Bill, and were renominated by their constituents, have been returned as elected. On the other hand, nearly all those who opposed that measure have either been politically slaughtered by not receiving nominations from their respective county conventions, or, if nominated, have been doomed to political exile, there to be taught how to inthe adage, " 'Tis good to have a giant's strength," &c., but not so good to especially when directed against the defenceless and weak. The paramount and first consideration and duty of a delegate or representative, in all cases, should be to reflect the will of his constituency, and in casting a vote it should not be in accordance with his individual prejudices, or what he individually may chance to like or dislike, but he should cast his vote in accordance w...

Cmmnunicutiono. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 13 September 1862

Cmmnunicutiono. For the Pacific Appeal. At Home and Abroad. BY E. R. J. —NUMBER X. The yearly conference of the A. M. E. Connection, recently held its session in New Bedford, Massachusetts. Among the visitors was the enterprising' lumber merchant, Rev. Stephen Smith, of Philadelphia. This gentleman is said to he one of the wealthiest men of that city. Notwithstanding the cruel prejudice which exists against our race in the U. S. A., causing us many deprivations and sufferings, consigning ns to menial occupations, and closing almost every avenue to a respectable and profitable avocation, yet there are : noteworthy cases wherein colored men dis- ' play groat ability in a business point, ■ which overcomes formidable obstacles, , and they carve out their own niche in the temple of fame. If the French philosopher D'Alembcrt was • correct in saying that there are but three . ways of rising in the world—to soar, to L crawl and to climb—Mr. Smith's history ( is a striking exemplification of...
