CORRESPONDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 13 September 1862
CORRESPONDENCE. WlilViUOf V/Xl JLSJVJJIX V^JCI. Victoria, Sept. 3, 1862. Mr. Editor—The principle of " Progress" that is advancing through the European nations, and perhaps through another continent, called (!) the land of liberty, has been exemplified in the most emphatic manner by the people of this town (now a city), and the proof we have to present you with is, that the rights, and liberties, and privileges of a Britisher are held sacred ; but facts must speak. You will see, by our local papers, that our town has received a charter of incorporation. Fourteen candidates started for councilmen, six to be elected. Upon the requisition of the citizens who aspired to the civic chair, a public meeting was called, to test the powers of the candidates, and never was there a more marked deference paid than to Mr. M. W. Gibbs, of the firm of Lester &amp; Gibbs, our candidate. Without exception, Gibbs made the best speech of the night, and created a position for himself that neithe...
Important Meeting of the Colored People of Boston. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 13 September 1862
Important Meeting of the Colored People of Boston. Mr. George T. Downing being in Boston on Sunday, July 20th, and haying in possession some factsUmportant to be communicated at once to the colored citizens, Rev. L. A. Grimes, on being apprised of the same, waived his evening service, and tendered the use of his pulpit, which arrangement was opportune, and seemed very satisfactory to the audience. Dr. Rock being called upon by Mr. Downing, stated that during his recent visit to Washington, he had au interview with Hon. George W. Julian, who imparted to him the fact that certain influential colored men, connected with the Liberia commission, had been of late active in endeavoring to impress members of Congress and others with the idea that the colored citizens of the United States have become favorably disposed towards Liberia colonization. i He (Dr. Rock) offset the assertion by numerous facts from his range of experience and observation, but wishing to have the statement in the for...

JfaUrtimw. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 20 September 1862
JfaUrtimw. Much excitement lias been occasioned, says the Boston correspondent of the An-glo-African of August 23, by the recent disclosures of President Lincoln of the plan to colonize the colored people of the country. Perhaps it would be well, he says, for Mr. Lincoln to secure the control of colored people South, before urging the emigration g cherne. The market price paid for army substitutes in Virginia is $800. Prentice thinks it is too much. Precious few of the rebels can do eight hundred dollars worth of fighting.
A Virginian on Emancipation — " The Golden Hour"—The Present. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 20 September 1862
A Virginian on Emancipation — " The Golden Hour"—The Present. BY HORACE GREELEY. In the life of a people there are moments which fix the destiny of generations. Vainly does one say, • I will forbear to-day. since to-morrow will serve as well the morrow comes, but the opportunity has passed forever. It may be regretted—its misuse may be bitterly repented—but it cau never be recalled. To all observing 1 eyes, the truth is manifest that our countrymen must now choose between Slavery and the Uuion. The recoil of our grand army from before Richmond—the consequent exultation and renewed activity of the rebels—their raids and local successes in Tennessee, Louisiana and elsewhere—the slowness of recruiting—the palpable efficiency of the Confederate conscription—all tend inevitably to this conclusion : We must summon to our aid new elements of streugth to the national cause, of weakness to its enemies, or the Union cannot be restored. The four millions of slaves, mainly held in bondage to re...
The False Chivalry. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 20 September 1862
The False Chivalry. An extract from a private letter of Gen. Viele, commanding at Norfolk, Va., relates an admirable instance of his sense of justice in the administration of martial law : " I had a number of serious cases to settle to-day, One was of a young man who had threatened another's life with a knife. I ordered him to be sent to the Rip' Raps. An eminent lawyer came to intercede for him. He told me the young man was a nephew of Chief Justice Taney, of the U. S. Supreme Court—a perfect gentleman, and one of ancient family. He had accidentally become intoxicated, and did not know what he was doing, and that he would never be guilty of such an offence again if I would spare him the disgrace of sending him to the Rip Raps. ' Sir,' said I, 'if a drunken negro were to threaten your life, do you think I would be justified in letting him off on the promise that he would not do it again?' The astonished Virginian could not nerve himself for amoment at the bare idea. At length he sai...
Homesteads. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 20 September 1862
Homesteads. THE PACIFIC APPEAL. SAN Fli AN CISCO : SATURDAY, S KPT KM HE R 20, 1862. The idea of a homestead for every family has become almost universal among the American people. In most of the older! States homestead associations are attracting the attention of all classes, and lately j we notice that the mechanics, working-men i and others in California are beginning to move in the matter. Heretofore our colored population have been so unsettled, and they have acted so little with a view to per. manency of location on this coast or withiu this State, that they have not given the subject the consideration its importance demands. They should watch more closely ; the " signs of the times," and view every I scheme, measure and circumstance bearing j on the homestead question, according to its ! relative magnitude and practical conse- | quence. Every project for his social wellbeing that attracts the attention of the white American should also attract the attention of the colored Ame...
Exhibtiion. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 20 September 1862
Exhibtiion. The Exhibition, given at Apollo Hall, on Thursday evening, for the benefit of Zion M. E. Church, was repeated on Friday evening. Considerable pains had been taken with the school children to enable them to ; speak their parts correctly. They acquit- | ted themselves creditably. The tableaux presented, were, "Eli and I Samuel," " Jacob at the Well of Laban," '"Moses found in the Bulrushes," " Saul presenting his daughter Marab to David," " The Feast of Belshazzer, or, the Handwriting on the Wall." The latter was illustrated with creditable effect. Two scenes from " Pizaro " were given on the first evening. The characters by the young men Johnson, Gilmore, Harrisson and Master George Bell. In such pieces they are always excellent. Several pieces of music were sung by the children with piano accompaniment, by and under the direction of Mrs. L. JVilcox. This lady is an accomplished pianist, and has reflected much credit, in such parts, in the several exhibitions that have be...

Ou Sunday, the 10th July, a notice &gt;vas read from the pulpits of several of the colored churches in Washington, in substance, that the President of the United States wished to confer with a committee of colored men of said city, on a matter of importance to them and the country. Accordingly a few of the representatives of the various charches assembled in Union Bethel Church, with several other interested persons. Shortly»after the time appointed for the meeting. Rev. J. Mitchell, a white man, acting as an Agent of Emigration for the Government, arose and gave an explanation of the notice. After a silence of several minntes duration, the inquiry was made whether the meeting had been duly organized, which being answered in the negative, the motion was immediately made that the Rev. J, A. Handy act as Chairman. The motion prevailed. A Secretary was also appointed. After t...

J&tcrturasi. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 27 September 1862
Selections. A dispatch was received in this city early in September to the effect that Sigel had shot McDowell on the battle-field. It thus arose : " Sigel had taken numerous prisoners, and commanded them to be sent to the rear of the army, to be transported to Washington. The way led through McDowell's camp, who refused to let the prisoners and their escort pass. Gen. Sigel thereupon instructed the Colonel to shoot McDowell if the latter refused him passage through his camp again. McDowell did so, but submitted when the Colonel told him what he had been instructed to do by Gen. Sigel. But in the marching backwards and forwards most of the prisoners seem to have escaped."
Colored Teachers. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 27 September 1862
Colored Teachers. The war has developed one fact new in the experience of the " great American people." It is the capacity of the blacks for teachers and saviors. When we become willing to go to school to the colored man and learn from him the lesson of our salvation, we may be saved, and not till then. Samuel Wilkinson, the army correspondent of the Tribune, communicates a conversation he has held with an intelligent black, which embodies the vital truth respecting the means of crushing the rebellion. We quote : I have talked with many'intelligent men of color on this subject. The superior man of all is known as " Tom." I one day drew him out of his guarded slience on this theme by saying : "1 am" surprised, Tom, that the negroes in this Peninsula don't fierht for us." " I reckon you ain't, Mr. W. You know too much." " Why don't they fight for us, Tom ?" " They expect to, sir, and all the colored men from here to Texas expect to." " Why don't they ?" "You know as well as I. We are ...
