From the Liberator. The Colonization Question—An Argument Against it. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 25 October 1862
From the Liberator. The Colonization Question—An Argument Against it. Byberry, Pa., Aug. 28, 1862. Hon. S. C. Pomeroy, Government Colonization Agent: Sir—l have read with deep and painful interest your address to the "Free Colored People of the United States," and as a " colored" man, beg the privilege of saying a few words in reply. Forty-five years ago, an overture similar to that contained in your address came to the colored people from the city of Washington. That proposed Western Africa as the happy place where they were to be colonized—this proposes Central America. On the receipt of that proposition, a public meeting of the colored people of Philadelphia was called, with a view of expressing their opinions of it. It was held in Bethel Church, in the month of January, 1817, and my honored father.in-law, the late James Forten, was its chairman. It adopted a series of resolutions, the first and last of which were as follows :— " Resolved, That as our ancestors (not of choice) we...
The Proclamation of Emancipation. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 25 October 1862
The Proclamation of Emancipation. Washington, September 23, 1862. The country is electrified this morning by President Lincoln's Proclamation of Emancipation. Although there has long been good reason to anticipate that the President would in due time avail himself of the power of war to Btriko directly at the mainspring of the rebellion and its most important staff and support, the Proclamation took us by surprise at last. It will be hailed with delight by the truly and unconditional loyal all over the land. Much as all good men must deplore the terrible war out of which has sprung the necessity for this declaration of freedom to an enslaved and oppressed race, wise patriots and humanitarians everywhere can but rejoice that the blood of the land—if it must flow at all—is washing out the only stain disgracing our national escutcheon. The hand of Providence begins to be recognized in the national affliction. As the Egyptians were sorely smitten until the Children of Israel passed out ...
The President of Liberia. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 25 October 1862
The President of Liberia. His Excellency Stephen Allen Benson, President of Liberia, is of pure African blood. He was sent from Maryland at the age of six, and having gone through great vicissitudes—among others of being a prisoner when very young among the aboriginess, then being a successful merchant, then being a member of the Legislature as Senator, then Judge, then Vice-President of the Republic, and, of course, President of the Senate, and occasionally military commander of the volunteer countrymen in resisting the attacks of the natives—became President of the Republic, and, having served three terms of two years each, was inaugurated for a fourth term last January, The Republic of Liberia has a coast line of aix hundred miles on the west coast of Africa, lying between Sierra Leone and the Gold Coast, and has a population of from 500,000 to 600,000 souls, of whom nearly 500,000 are aboriginal inhabitants. Under the able presidency of Mr. Benson, Liberia has made great strides...
President Benson on the Continent. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 25 October 1862
President Benson on the Continent. Information has been received by the American Colonization Society of this city, that the President of Liberia has been welcomed and treated on the Continent with the same liberal spirit and generous hospitality extended to him in Great Britain. Leaving London on the sth ultimo, he has already visited several of the promenant cities. At Berlin he was entertained by Count Bernstoff, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Prussia, President Benson sitting on the right hand and the Chief of the Japanese on the left of the Countess of Bernstoff. Gerard Ralston, Esq., wrote from London as follows : " President Benson receives everywhere the most courteous and honorable treatment. He is expected at Amsterdam on the 14th instant, and, after visiting Holland, Belgium, &amp;c., may come back to Great Britain; but whether he will visit our country (United States of America) or not, Ido not know, I hardly think he has yet determined whither to go after le...
The School System. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 25 October 1862
The School System. THE PACIFIC APPEAL. SAN FK AN CISCO ; SATURDAY, AcTOBER 25, 1862. But little has been said by us in relation to the School System in this State. Many suppose that, as we have a Public School in this city for colored children, that there is also one in each county of the State. The School in this city is under the immediate control of the Board of Education for this county. In the interior cities and towns—with the exception, perhaps, of Sacramento and Stockton, where the County Board allows a small contribution towards the pay of the teachers—the colored children are entirely excluded from the schools, and no separate schools are provided. This should be a subject for our earnest attention. The ensuing Legislature will consist of men of the most liberal views, who will not be frightened by the cry of Abolitionist, etc. —men, we believe, who will examine the subject, and rocommend a reform of the present partial system, and, at least, give us schools in localities ...
Delinquents. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 25 October 1862
Delinquents. A few words to our delinquent patrons. Of such we have many, and regret to have to bring the subject to public notice. Why some men, claiming to be intelligent, will continue to receive our paper, and expect to have it sent to them (probably in all the future) without paying their subscription, or contributing one dime to its support, is a problem we are unable to solve. The subscription fee to the Appeal is but fifty cents per month, and when two or three months are in arrears, it certainly would be a relief to us for them to pay one month at least voluntarily and without bar ing dunned, to enable us to pay the printers promptly every week. As for our time and labor, we have had nothing for that, nor do we expect anything, but we do expect the expenses of the paper at least to be paid, and when that is done we shall feel, in some degree, content. If a newspaper is a necessity amongst us at this important crisis, let us give it a united support, and-not hold back and ex...
CORRESPONDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 25 October 1862
CORRESPONDENCE. Victoria, V. 1., Oct. 1, 1862. Mr. Editor :— Although we have fewmatters very exciting to record in this city, still, as I promised, I send you a few lines. As I wrote you, in anticipation, some time since, the misfortune and the fortune of many a gold-seeker is a fertile topic of conversation with us, and the reality as regards the former, but too true ; nor is it surprising that men who never handled a spade or shovel, and others who lacked the energy to persevere, that gold was not to be had without severe toil and many hardships, should be disappointed, while on the other hand, those of a different stamp have obtained a golden reward. Our government, however, are exerting themselves to find locations on farm lands on the most liberal terms, and when the progress that has been made in agriculture is noticed by those who came in '58, the conclusion must be come to that this must eventually be a great producing country. Gardens and orchards spring up as if by magic,...
Communications. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 25 October 1862
Communications. For the Pacific Appeal. Our Situation. BY DR. E. R. J.—NO. XVI. There are many intelligent persons among onr people who have watched closely the doings of our Government, but fail to discover any encouragement, amid the conflicting interests which often bear bo heavily upon us. I admit that much suffering is caused by cruel, heartless tyrants, who have, through ignorance and prejudice, imbibed a hatred towards those who, unfortunately, have beeu the victims of their malignity. 1 believe, however, there are elements outside of this band of demons which are exerting an influence on the public mind, that will not be appeased until the arm of justice controls the action of our rulers. I give the opinion of an Eastern correspondent, which contains facts that are pertinent to the present condition of affairs, and may be interesting to your readers. Great events have transpired. The rebels, elated with their continued success, entered Maryland, Ohio and Pennsylvania. The pe...
What the English Papers Say. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 25 October 1862
What the English Papers Say. It was naturally to be expected that the journals hostile to the Federal cause should make the most of the diversity of opinion prevailing at the North in regard to the policy of emancipation and the employment of the negroes. The London Times, of course, is in something like what it means for high glee at the war of words between the Democratic and the Republican parties, and quotes the divergent views of Mr. Vallandigham, and of Wendell Phillips with a zest that savors of a spirit of diabolism. It notes, too, how Governor Andre sists in arming colored citizens, aud how Gen. Hunter's Black Brigade, on the other hand is discountenanced. Of course I need not tell you that it makes the most of Jeff Davis's proclamation in regard to the treatment awaiting prisoners of color, and above all of the fate in reseve for white officers who may venture to command them, should they have the ill luck to fall into Confederaie hands. But it is not by such journals as t...
An Appeal to the President. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 25 October 1862
An Appeal to the President. Oh, President Lincoln, God has placed you as a father over these poor oppressed millions. Remember their forlorn condition ! Think how they have been for generations deprived of the light of knowledge and the hope of freedom ! Think of the cruel lashes inflicted upon them for trying to learn to read the Word of God ! Think of their wives polluted, and their children sold, without any means of redress for such foul and cruel wrongs ! Imagine them stealing through midnight swamps, infested with snakes and alligators, guided toward freedom by the North Star, and then hurled back into bondage by Northern blood-hounds in the employ of the United States 1 Think how long their groans and prayers for deliverance have gone up before God, from the hidden recesses of Soutliern forests I Listen to the refrain of their plaintive hymn, " Let my people go !" Above all, think of their present woeful uncertainty, scourged and driven from one to another, not knowing whom t...
jEatrst ®«Ugraphw gcutf. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 25 October 1862
jEatrst ®«Ugraphw gcutf. New York, October 21st.—The Herald's Washington special dispatch says that the pressure for a forward movement is becoming about general. It is urged with an earnestness that has never been equalled. The argument is used that a protraction of our present inaction will ruin the country. The Times has a dispatch giving an account from a refugee who brought a report from Culpeper county, Va. He anticipated a slave insurrection, and says that the inhabitants of the counties where the insubordination exists threaten to resist the conscription. They act on the plea of selfprotection to defend themselves against the negroes. It is believed that two-thirds of the slaves in Virginia have already heard of Lincoln's proclamation, and believe themselves free. The gentleman who brought the report thinks that should the rebel army retreat from their present position another Nat. Turner rebellion would occur in Eastern and Central Virginia. New York, Oct. 21.—The Iribune e...
