From the Independent. WILL YOU TAKE A PILOT ? [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 18 October 1862
From the Independent. WILL YOU TAKE A PILOT ? BY MRS. HARRIET BEECHER STOWE. " And it was dark, and Jesus was not come to them. And the sea arose by reason of it great wind that blew. So when they had rowed about five-and-twenty or thirty furlongs, they see Jesus walking on the sea, and drawing nigh unto the ship; and they were afraid. " But he said unto them, It is I ; be not afraid. " Then they willingly received him into the ship : and immediately the ship was at the land, whither they went," —In our troubles we have now rowed about five-and-twenty or thirty furlongs, trusting mainly to good oar-strokes and stout arms. Evidently Jesus has not yet come to us. We put it to the hearts consciences of all if things have been Cohducted in our national councils, and in the broad, general, national feeling, as if he had. There is, doubtless, much faith in him—much respect for him in church and state and army, as there was among the disciples in this ship ; but, for the main part, we have...
Original Anti-Slavery Agitators. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 18 October 1862
Original Anti-Slavery Agitators. " There is not a man living who wishes more sincerely than I do, to see a plan adopted for the abolition of slavery." George Washington, April 12, 1186. " The scheme, my dear Marquis, which you propose as a precedent to encourage the emancipation of the black people in this country from the state of bondage in which they are held, is a striking evidence of the benevolence of your heart."— Wash* iuytm to Lafayette, 118*3. -&lt; " It is the most earnest wish of America to see an entire stop for ever put to the wicked, cruel, and unnatural trade in slaves."—Meeting at Fairfax, Va., July 18 1174, presided, over by Washington. " I tremble for my country, when I reflect that God is just. His justice cannot' sleep forever."—Jefferson's Notes on Slavery in Virginia. " The King of Great Britain has waged cruel war against human nature itself, viclating its most sacred rights of life 'and liberty, in the persons of a distant people who never offended h...
A Visit to the Hermitage.—General Andrew Jackson's Last Words. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 18 October 1862
A Visit to the Hermitage.—General Andrew Jackson's Last Words. The most attractive and interesting locality, near Nashville, Tenn., is the "Hermitage," the former residence of General Andrew Jackson. In company with Mr. Foss, I rode out to the " Hermitage" one bright afternoon. It is about thirteen miles from the city: the road winding through a tine, picturesque and well cultivated country, the drive is a pleasant one. The mansion, a fine brick edifice, stands a short distance from the main road, and is approached over a beautiful gravelled road, bordered, on either side, by fine arbor-vita; trees. Leaving our horses with an old negro, we walked over the grounds, which are laid out with much taste. In one corner of the garden is the tomb, or mausoleum of stone, in the form of a Liberty Temple. On a broad slab, beneath this temple, these simple words are chisled : "General Andrew Jackson. Born May 15, 1767; Died June 8, 1845." Another slab bears an epitaph written by General Jackson...
The Signs of the Times. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 18 October 1862
The Signs of the Times. THE PACIFIC APPEAL. SAN FRANCISCO : SATURDAY, OCTOBER 18, 1862. The public mind appears to be tranquil at present. The war news, as it is flashed across the continent at intervals, detailing skirmishes and rebel raids, has ceased to create the wild excitement with which it was but lately attended. The recent Union victories have had a pleasurable if not a soothing effect upon the public pulse, perhaps because they were more in accordance with the general anticipation, and what the people had a right to expect. Some little at least has been done on the warpath towards success, and the public heart is less in a flutter, just now, and more at rest, as if awaiting prepared-for and better results, where all has been done that should be done to secure them. Politics, therefore, are, at present, at a discount. All are, apparently, awaiting the assembling of Congress in December, to set forth the general programme of the nation. Congress will assemble on the'flrst Mo...
A Resignation Tendered. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 18 October 1862
A Resignation Tendered. Mr. Edward M. Thomas, President of the Anglo-African Institute, &amp;c.: My Dear Sir I hereby resign the office of Vice-President of the Institute of which you are President. Whilst our country is overwhelmed with the horrors of a bloody and disastrous war. I cannot uphold an exhibition which typifies the calm of prosperous peace. If the government does not see fit to employ men in the public defence, let not colored men by any act of theirs show that they are not in full sympathy with what ought to be the feelings of American citizens at this crisis. Respectfully yours, James M'Cune Smith.
CORRESPONDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 18 October 1862
CORRESPONDENCE. New Westminster, B. C., Sept. 24th. Mr. Editor—l write to acknowledge my approval of the Pacific Avfeal, hoping that it may prosper and continue in the good cause, namely, the moral and intellectual advancement of the colored race. Since I wrote to you last, I have gained five more subscribers. I have nothing much to write in the way of news, but will send you a few items occasionally concerning Cariboo, etc. A difficulty occurred near here recently between two colored men, Perry and Saul Hosa, both old Californians. The former being in debt to Hosa, started to leave the country without settling, and had got as far as Williams' Lake, where he was overtaken by Hosa, who resorted to unlawful means, which angered Perry and drawing a pistol he fired at Hosa, the ball taking effect in the left breast, two inches below tne heart. The wound has not proved fatal, as yet. Perry Mias made his escape to Washington Territory. Hosa has been taken back to Keatley's creek. Yours et...
Communications, [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 18 October 1862
Communications, For the Pacific Appeal. Faith and Hope. BY DR. E. R. J. NO. XV. Life is not entirely made up of great evils or heavy trials, the perpetual recurrences of petty evils and small trials are the ordinary and appointed excercise of Christian graces. The delusion that a practitioner in the healing art is often obliged to dispel from the mind of his patients is, the erroneous opinion which they entertain in reference to the nature of disease and the grievous consequence from its long continuance and tenacious character. The task would be pleasant if the advice was* followed, for a great benefit would be derived from the treatment so earnestly desired. Too many persons, however, are like Naaman, they expect to be cured by their own way and in their own time. The delusive hope of being able to remove in a day, a long-standing and painful disease, that has poisoned the blood and has crappled all the fibres of the human frame, is the invalid's companion, and often proves to be ...

New Haven against Colonization. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 18 October 1862
New Haven against Colonization. At a meeting of colored citizens held in the basement of Shiloh Church, on Monday evening, August 25, for the purpose of interchanging views in regard to President Lincoln's colonization scheme. Rev. William T. Cato and Prof. E. D. Bassett were introduced to the meeting by Dr. J. McCune Smith as delegates from New Haven, Conn. Mr. Cato made an eloquent speech, in which he said he could not but regard the language of President Lincoln to the committee of colored men at Washington, as pandering to the mob spirit now rife in so many places, and in so many forms, east, west, and north. He contended that the two races can live together, and without either party cutting the other's throats. They live together without any such murderous work in England, Canada, France, the West Indies, South America, and everywhere else. Even here, it has always been so. Remove slavery, and this wicked idea would vanish before the warm breath of civilization. As to to the Pr...

Letter to the President. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 18 October 1862
Letter to the President. President Lincoln : Respected Friend — On behalf of one hundred and eleven signers of an accompanying petition, I would respectfully ask to submit a few brief reflections for your consideration. From the moral stand-point which we occupy, it does seem to us that this war mignt be brought to a speedy and righteous termination, were all the instrumentalities brought to bear upon it which lie in your reach, under the war power, as President of the United States. Though now occupying, as you do, one of " the high places of the earth," we have, nevertheless, been led to regard you as one possessing feelings and sympathies in common with the people, and who conscientiously does his part in accordance with his convictions of duty. Yet, while we thus regard you, wo cannot see clearly why you shrink from grappling with the active and vital cause of our national troubles. Slavery seeks to extend its dominions— seeks to rule, or to be " let alone." Its intrinsic measur...
From the Independent. Obituary. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 18 October 1862
From the Independent. Obituary. Anthony Burns is dead—the fugitive slave whose arrest in Boston, under the Fu-gitive-Slave Law, excited such indignation a few years ago. After his return to bondage, and subsequent ransom to freedom, he studied at Oberlin College, fitted himself for the ministry, and accepted the pulpit of a Baptist Church at St. Catherine's, Canada West, where he labored with great faithfulness until struck with a slow consumption. His lingering illness he bore with signal patience and cheerfulness of spirit, winning, in a rare degree, the affection of those who watched over him, ministering to their spiritual life from his sick bed, and at last dying in the victory of faith. Six ministers of the Gospel (both white and black) conducted the exercises of his funeral ; one of whom thus speaks of the scene: "The concourse around his peaceful grave were mostly colored—the adults of whom, like himself, had fled from bondage ; and yet there was quite a number of white peop...
Ihf gcu?. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 18 October 1862
The News. The Richmond Examiner says that their (rebel) congress has serious business on hand at present in the subject of finance. Their revenue bill provides that every citizen shall give to the Confederate Government one-fifth of his gross income, and receive in acknowledgment 8 cent bonds. Of all their loans the 8 cent, is the worst; and of all the taxes, the 20 cent is the most oppressive. By this project, says the Examiner, Congress strikes a heavier blow at our credit than the public enemy. The rebel congress was to adjourn Oct. 13. New Orleans continued in remarkably good health. A returned prisoner from Richmond, says that the treatment of Federal prisoners has b::en much softened, they being abundantly 8 applied with provisions. The Rebels had released several free negroes captured at Bull Run, when they succeeded in establishing the fact that they were not fugitives. The Herald's Washington correspondence says that the Government have come into possession of a letter of B...
