From the Anglo-African. Meeting in Philadelphia in Belation to Enrollment. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 27 September 1862
From the Anglo-African. Meeting in Philadelphia in Belation to Enrollment. A meeting was held in Pine street, Philadelphia, on Wednesday evening, August 13th, 1862, to consider the propriety of enrolling the colored male residents of the State of Pennsylvania. Rev. John A. Williams was appointed Chairman, and A. M. Green was chosen Secretary. The Chairman briefly stated the object of the meeting. The Secretary, Mr. Green, then read a paper having a direct bearing on the subject,*i§s follows : We the undersigned, colored male residents of the State of Pennsylvania, denied citizenship on account of our color, and thtfrffßSfle exempt by the State laws from liability to perform military duty ; and as the United States has not authoritatively signified a lesire or intention to enroll the colored residents of this State in its service, unless by co-operation with the State Executive ; and whereas, efforts are being made to convey from this State into another, persons of African descent, w...
Negroes in the Army. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 27 September 1862
Negroes in the Army. One of the most consistent and liberal journals in this State is the Tuolumne Courier. Speaking on the war question it says : We know that an opinion prevails that such troops would be unreliable, and that the race is cowardly ; which is but a senseless prejudice, derived from our slavery associations, and will not be concurred in by any military or naval commander who has had any experience with them. The French and the English have always used black troops, and so have we ourselves. They were in all the campaigns uhder Washington, Greene, and Lafayette, and •in the cruisings under Paul Jones, Truxton, Decatur, Barry, Perry, and McDonough! The testimony of history unquestionably is, that the negroes bore their full proportion of the trials and sacrifices of the Revolutionary War. We may pooh ! at the idea—as many doubtless will—but we can- not get over the fact that so history has recorded it. We know very well that the negroes of Hayti defeated and drove off f...
tfhe President and Colored Soldiers. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 27 September 1862
tfhe President and Colored Soldiers. The President has declared that he will not accept any regiment of colored men as soldiers. They must all be accepted as laborers. There have been several declarations made in the course of this our war which it has been iound expedient to revise or forget, and this declaration of war against the black man may soon be found to belong to the list. The President may do his best and his worst to uphold and maintain a wretched prejudice, but it will be all in vain. The war that is directed against the colored race is neither more nor less than a war in behalf of the rebels, and all that is done adversely to them is so much done in support of traitors. Their services are scornlully rejected by persons who have been unable to do much lor their country. Ihe President is a Republican, and how his conduct contrasts with that of gallant and patriotic Governor Sprague, of Rhode Island, who is a conservative, and who has called for the formation of a regimen...
The Proclamation. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 27 September 1862
The Proclamation. THE PACIFIC APPEAL. SAN FRANCISCO : SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 1862. The great principles embodied in this astounding document were flashed across the continent with the news of Tuesday last. Being somewhat anticipated, from recent rumors and unofficial reports, its reception was not marked by any very great degree of surprise or amazement on the part of the public press or the people generally. But though no firing of cannon was heard from the hill-tops, and no flags were displayed for this special occasion, the Proclamation was, nevertheless, read and discussed with intense interest. A murmur might have been heard, here and there, from the groups that could be seen in earnest apparently discussing the merits of the great topic which the telegraph had just announced, but there was not much excitement and no noisy demonstration of any kind. But still the subject increases in interest, as its mighty import becomes more thoroughly comprehended, and day by day, new conse...
Public School Meeting. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 27 September 1862
Public School Meeting. Pursuant to notice, a meeting of the parents and friends of the Colored Public School was held in the School Room, on Monday evening, 22d ins't. On motion, it was resolved that J. B. Sanderson act as Chairman. On motion, it was resolved that P. Anderson act as Secretary. The Chairman stated the object of the meeting, which was, that he desired to call the attention of the parents and friends of the children to the condition of the school, and whatever defects, if any, should be respectfully represented to the Eoard of Education. This might be done by petition, and he had no doubt but that the Board would give the subject a respectful consideration. It had been admitted that the present School Room was not adapted, either to play-grounds or comfort for the scholars. The school is also deficient in many things that are essentially necessary for the im. provement of the scholars. On motion of Mrs. Mary Bevins, Mr. San. derson, the teacher, was requested to draw u...
CORRESPONDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 27 September 1862
CORRESPONDENCE. Philadelphia, Aug. 22, 1862. Mr. Editor—ln these times of war, perhaps it is looked for and expected that something should be said by correspondents of its political bearing on the issue. Well, I think the war gets on slowly, but as fast, perhaps, as may be for the benefit of our countty's future permanent and lasting condition. In a word, the war cannot get on faster to a successful termination than a right and healthful public sentiment can be created to carry it forward. But we must not despair. The people at large must come up to the sticking point, or lose their Government, and the choice must be made speedily and before it is eternally too late. They must accept the negro to help them, and do meet for repentance. This once great nation has oppressed and bruised the negro with many stripes, until God, the great Statesman and General, has come down and espoused the cause of the oppressed, and He is asking this nation, in the many defeats and in the blood of the s...
Communications. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 27 September 1862
Communications. For the Pacific Appeal. Thoughts for the People. From the time that the Sons of Noah, dispersed over the domains earth, and erected civil governments for the protection and happiness of their various tribes, has ever existed in some form or another, suppression and inferior rank among mankind ; it has been often manifested through the depth and greatness of mind, the grasp and subtility of intellect, the intricacy of science ; the discovery and improvement in the mode of warfare ; the ingenuity and and machinations of diplomacy, and the attraction and cohesion of trade ; whatever class of men suffer these incentives to escape, and continue unmoved by the qualities that unfolds the spirit and ambition of others, need not hope to enjoy comparative equality, or be recognized from the contagiou of degraded associations. Nations of ancient and modern times have very often been forced into obscure positions, and presented attitudes of doubtful tenure, in consequence of an ...
Pomeroy's Colonization Scheme Abandoned. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 27 September 1862
Pomeroy's Colonization Scheme Abandoned. The Cabinet on last Saturday, (August 30,) decided against the present plan of negro colonization at Chiriqui, partly in consequence of remonstrances of Costa Rica Ministers, and partly from other considerations. The President's plan of sending out a negro colony thisf fall has been therefore abandoned. Its publicity, however, has produced some important results. It lias developed an interest in the plan of colonization in part of the colored race in America, unknown before. Within two days after the publication of Senator Pomeroy's letter, the application jot families for the expenditures exceeded tlie number he was authorized to receive. At the present time enough have applied to load two vessels. Among these are two sons oi Fred. Douglass, whu has written a letter to Pomeroy, in which he asks him to receive them as members of his proposed colony. He also denies the expediency or justice of the Government'B seeking to banish the colored rac...

That on the Ist day of January, 1803, all persons held as slaves within any State or part of a State, the people whereof shall th...
