Selections. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 4 October 1862
Selections. Louisvhxe, Sept. 29.—Brig. Gen. Jeff. C. Davis (of the Union army) shot Maj. Gen. Nelson at the Gait House to-day. A difficulty had existed between them for some time. This morning Davis demanded an apology for language Nelson used towards him a few days since, when Nelson slapped him in the face, and denounced him as a coward. Davis turned away, and borrowed a pistol from a friend, and followed Nelson, who was going up stairs. 1 Davis told him to defend - himself, and immediately shot him. The ball penetrated his heart. He died in 20 minutes.
The President and the Negroes. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 4 October 1862
The President and the Negroes. For the first time in our country's history, a number of negroes have been invited to and have had a free and friendly conference on matters of grave public concern with a President of the United States. The leading colored men of the Federal Metropolis were thus called to the White House and treated to a speech from President Lincoln on Thursday of last week. The tone of that speech was kind ; its spirit was friendly ; but its words do not seem to have fallen on sympathising ears. Nor can we wonder at this when we consider that its burthen ran thus : "You are now free ; but yours is a limited, crippled, inferior negro freedom at best, and there is little prospect of its improvement here. You are disliked and regarded with prejudice by the whites : two races so adverse cannot get on well together : they degrade and corrupt each other : so you ought to migrate to Central America, where you shall have new homes, with work and pay for it, and be protected...
Caasius M. Clay on the War. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 4 October 1862
Caasius M. Clay on the War. Cassius M. Clay made a rousing speech | on the war, a few days since, at a fair held in the Odd Fellows' Hall at Washington. Here is a sample of it k " I stall speak with that freedom which becomes the deference I have for those in power, and that regard for truth which I have always secretly maintained. First, then, gentlemen, when this rebellion first broke out, and when the blood of American citizens, marching to the defence of their own flag, and of their own capital, was shed by the hands of rebels, and we stood there not knowing what might be done with the President, and the commanders and others in authority—whether we should not be cut to pieces, as they a thousand times threatened to do—your humble servant addressed you from the balcony of Willard's Hotel. I told you that, for twenty years, I have been warring against this institution of slavery, and to effect its overthrow was willing to sacrifice property, comlort, and even life itself, and tha...
Why the Black Regiment tu Disbanded. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 4 October 1862
Why the Black Regiment tu Disbanded. The Hilton Head correspondent of the Tribune says : "The Ist Regiment of South Carolina Volunteers has been disbanded.. Justice to the men demanded that General Hunter should pursue this course, • Under a regimental organization for three months, these negroes have been drilling, performing useless fatigue duty, but have not received a cent of pay. Seeing their fellows employed as servants for officers and as. laborers in the quartermaster and commissary departments obtaining good wages,, without being subject to restraints insepar-. able from camp life, these black soldiers have lately shown some dissatisfactron, and clamored for justice. General Hunter, always quick to redress grievances, at once disbanded the regiment. He had repeated-*, ly appealed to the War Department in be*, half of these patriotio freedmen, and had tacitly, if not expressly, received its sano*. tion to keep the*' organization in existence, as the sending down of uniforms,...
Enrollment of Colored Citizens. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 4 October 1862
Enrollment of Colored Citizens. Attorney General Foster, of Massachusetts, has given his opiuion upon this subject, of which the following is the material portion : — The regulations issued by the War Department for the enrollment and draft of three hundred thousand militia, Aug. 9, 1862, contain the following order :— "Third. The Governors of the respective StAtes will cause an enrollment to be made forthwith by the assessors of the several counties, or by any other officers, to be appointed by such Governors, of all able-bod-ied mal ecitizens, between the ages ofeighteen and forty-five, within the respective counties, giving the name, age, and occupation of each, together with remarks, showing whether he is in the service of the United States, and in what capacity, and any other facts which may determine his exemption from military duty." It thus appears that all able-bodied male citizens of the respective States are to be enrolled in the militia of the United States, and that Con...
Past, Present and Future. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 4 October 1862
Past, Present and Future. THE PACIFIC APPEAL. SAN FJiANCISCO: SATURDAY, OCTOBER 4, 1862. From the time that the Anti-Slavery agitation commenced its advance, about the years 1882 or '34, the free colored people have especially been singled out, in all the Northern Legislatures, as subjects for special legislation. Enactments the most humiliating have been introduced, and in many instances carried out (vide Illinois) to cripple the advance and retard the progress of the free colored American. The benefits of the public school system, wherever allowed, have been given in a prescriptive form. Colonization without education has been urged by those who were supposed to be best versed in the elements of social and political economy, and all the disabilities superadded that prejudice could engender, and the minds of Europeans inoculated with dislike of our people, no matter how little they knew of us in the time allotted to them for naturalization and the acquisition of citizenship. But no...

The minutes of the previous meeting of the Committee were read and adopted. Mr. Collins, as Chairman of the meeting, called for the report of the Committee. The Chairman of the Committee then made the following report: Whereas, we, the colored citizens of San Francisco, deeply deplore the calamity of our country, yet believing that it will result in the destruction of that system of wickedness, —American Slavery,—which has brought...
Benefit Exhibition at Tucker's Hall. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 4 October 1862
Benefit Exhibition at Tucker's Hall. A number of amateurs—the Misses Johnson, Miller, Hall, Sanderson, Williams, and Mrs. Wilcox ; with Messrs. Harrison, Gilmore, Groves, Jackson, L. A. and Geo. Bell —gave an Entertainment, consisting of Dialogues, Tableaux and Music, at Tucker's Hall, on Thursday evening, Oct. 2d, for the benefit of the Baptist Church, Dupont st. The occasion drew forth a respectable and intelligent audience of both colored and white persons. Among the pieces on the programme creditably rendered, were the Murdering Scene, from the 2d Act of Macbeth ; the Soliloquy, by Mr. Harrison ; Comic Dialogue and Duett, "Matrimonial Sweets," by Miss Johnson and Mr. Gilmore. The dialogue, " Lost Diamond," was somewhat marred by the over-acting of the part by Master Geo. Bell. In a comic part like this, the character should be rendered in a style opposite to that of a clown. The Tableaux were all grand. Among the several pieces of music, with piano ; accompaniment by Master Tayl...

CORRESPONDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 4 October 1862
CORRESPONDENCE. Grass Valley, Sept. 18, 1862. Mr. Editor—Dear Sir ; There was a shooting affair came off this morning, near the head of Mill street, between Ned Richardson and a man known as Dutch John, in which the latter received four wounds, one ball in each thigh, one over the hip, and one in the left breast. The difficulty originated over a poker game—Richardson acted in self-defence—it is thought Dutch John cannot live. Yours truly, I. S.
®ommunica»iotis. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 4 October 1862
Communications. For the Pacific Appeal. The Liberty Bells are Hinging. BY E. R. J. —NUMBER XIII. Intelligence has been received by telegraph that President Lincoln has issued a Procli*mation, in which he gives notice that he will urge upon Congress the passage of laws providing for the emancipation of slaves, and declaring all slaves free, in States which, on the 1st of January next, shall still be in rebellion against the Government. The Chief of our Nation is not insensible of the fact that we have reached a stern crisis in our struggle for national existence. The grave anxiety imprinted on every loyal face, the activity and energy displayed by the military leaders of the disunion forces the successes they have achieved in Virginia, Tennessee, and even in Kentucky, all attest a change in the aspect of the struggle. Our armies pause, content to hold their own and fortunate if unassailed, while the North puts forth its best efforts to raise three hundred thousand men, deemed necessa...
Slavery in Virginia. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 4 October 1862
Slavery in Virginia. It is estimated by rebels that quite 100,000 slaves have left Virginia since the breaking out of the rebellion. Very many are said to have escaped under Fremont's late administration of the Mountain Department ; and some say that it was on this account that complaints originating in rebeldorn, after going through various shades of disloyalty and loyalty, were finally felt at Washington, and resulted in his indirect removal. McDowell, it is certain, has his share to answer in weakening these pillars of the rebellion (or, as G. Davis thinks, of the Constitution). Notwithstanding the amount of unpopularity which has pursued Gen. McD. of late, the earnest people, taking their cue from Senator Wade—and notwithstanding Gen. McD. did foolishly guard the fence-rails of Landon Huffman, a tailor of Fredricksburg and an outrageous rebel— yet he is more abominated at Fredricksburg and Warren ton by the sccesh than any General that Uncle Sam has sent into these neighborhoods...
The News. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 4 October 1862
The News. We have not lost a single gun or color on the battle-field of Antietam. Fourteen thousand rebel small arms were collected, besides what was carried off by citizens at South Mountain. No collection of small arms was made, owing to the haste of pursuit from that point. (Signed.) McClellan. Baltimore, Sept. 30th.—A Sharpsburg letter to the American says : Harper's Ferry is now held in large force by our troops, and is evidently regarded as an important point in connection with the army of the Potomac. All indications bespeak renewed activity on the part of our army. Philadelphia, Sept, 30th.—A Washington correspondent of the Enquirer says, it t is rumored that the reason for the existing quietude in the army of the Potomac is, that Commmissioners are on the way from the Confederate Congress to propose terms of peace, said to be something like the following : The loyal States to take all the Territories and Missouri, Tennessse, Kentucky and Maryland, and make them free or slav...
