Slavery Abolished in tho District of Columbia. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 19 April 1862
Slavery Abolished in tho District of Columbia. One of the altars of the Dagon of Slavery is thrown down ! Congress has at last recognized its power over the " peculiar institution" of Cottondom ; Slavery no longer exists in the District of Coluin- bia, and the Capitol of our nation will never more be cursed with the footsteps of a slave. The Senate Bill to abolish Slavery in the District of Columbia, passed the Ilonsc of Representatives, the lltli i ust., by a vote of 98 to 3f&gt;—Laus Deo.
Thoso " Books," &c. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 19 April 1862
Thoso " Books," &amp;c. They begin to come in slowly, 'tis true. We are indebted to Mr. John D. Courcy for a valuable book of reference, and to ('apt. S. Grooms for some useful and entertaining publications. Those large quantities of &amp;c. which we anticipated have not turned up yet. We are waiting patiently. The smallest fa" vors—verb tap. The small pox is still prevalent in this city. We would advise all who have'not. been recently inoculated to be so quickly ; it is the only preventive. Dr. Smeatham, Brenham Place, opposite the Plaza, is very successful, having vaecinnated several hundred lately. Dr. E. E. Johnson has a new method of vacCinnation, which, he assures us, is as sure a prevention as the old, no danger of erysipelas ensuing. We believe both these medical gentlemen are reasonable in their charges.

Poetry. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 19 April 1862
Poetry. For the Taciflc Appeal. SONG. Toward Mecca's tomb the Moslem turns His face, 'mid deserts drear, And offers up his orisons, Misguided, but sincere. Nor am I, dearest, less devout, —Idolatrous than he ; To thee, my prayers are offered up, My hoart still clings to thee. As to the ark the gentle dove Returned, though free to roam, Aud found, beneath its sheltering roof, Affection and a home— So from the arts and luring wiles That falsehood may suggest, My spirit turns to thy pure heart For refuge and for rest. J. G. C.
Communirations. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 19 April 1862
Communirations. Fur the Paoillc Appeal. Inoentive to Action. An organic law requires that all the powers of the body be properly exercised. Health and strength are found in action, not in ease. Without suitable exercise ; the organs of the body would gradually lose thoir power, and their appropriate functions would be inadequately performed ; when this is the ease, the consequences are, weakness of the muscular system, nervous irritability, and a fearful train of diseases incident to a life of inactivity. There is an indissoluble connection between the offense and its appropriate punishment. The penalty has a special and definite relation to the nature of the transgression. Let muscular motion be suspended, and ia one year the strong arm w'ould become weak and powerless. For this infringement of the law the offender would probably be deprived of the use of his limbs, a ponalty corresponding to the nature of his demerits. The same is true of the mind. Exercise necessary to the proper...

jJHwrtUantous. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 19 April 1862
jJHwrtUantous. " This is the White Man's War Negroes have nothing to do with it. A member of the Indiana 20th regiment, now encamped near Fortress Monroe,writes to the IndianapolU Journal, on the 23d ult. as follows : Yesterday morning, Gen. Mansfield with Drake de Kay, Aid-de-camp, in command of seven companies of the 20th New York German Rilies, left Newport News on a reconoissance. Just after passing Newmarket Bridge, seven miles from camp, they detached one company as an advance and soon after their advance was attacked by 600 of of the enemy's cavalry. The company formed to relieve cavalry but the cavalry advancing deployed to the right and left when within musket range, and unmasked a body of seven hundred negro infantry, all armed with muskets, who opened fire on our men, wounding two lieutenants and two privates, and rushing forward, surrounded the company of Germans, who cut their way through, killing six of the negroes and wounding several more. The main body, hearing the ...
A Nut for Yancey. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 19 April 1862
A Nut for Yancey. The Virginia Convention which pretended to withdraw that State from the Union has recently held an adjourned session to revise the State Constitution. The loyal (Westera) members having long ago quit the concern, the slave-breeders had everything their own way ; and here are two sections of their revised Constitution. We find them in the Wheeling Press, copied from an extra of the South Branch (Rebel) Intelligencer, ostensibly issued at Romney, but evidently printed at Richmond. ARTICLE 111. Sec. 20. The General Assembly may prohibit the future emancipation of slaves, impose such restrictions as they shall deem proper on the power ot slave-own-ers to emancipate the slaves, and may pass laws for the relief of the Commonwealth or otherwise. Sec. 21. The General Assembly shall not emancipate any slave, or the descendant of any slave, either before or after the birth of such descendant. J©* The Sabbath School at Scott Street Church is held every Sunday, at 10 o'clock, ...

J&tMtiimss. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 26 April 1862
J&amp;tMtiimss. Negro Equality Governments. It is carious to observe that the States of Maryland, North Carolina and. Tennessee, for many years after their prganization, negroes were placed upon an equality wkh white citizens in regard to the right of suffrage. In the first Constitution of Maryland, adopted August 14th, 1715, the sth Article of the Declaration of Rights, sayfi; " Every man having property in, a common interest with, and an attachment to, the community, ought to have a right of suffrage." The 2d article of the Constitution relating to electors, says : " The House of Delegates shall be chosen in the following manner —all freemen above twenty-qne years of age, having a freehold of fifty acres of land in the county in which they offer to vote, and residing therein ; and all freemen having property in this State above the value of thirty pounds, curreut money, and having residfea in the county in which they offer to vote, one whole year next preceding the .electi...
A Prayer Meeting among the Contrabands. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 26 April 1862
A Prayer Meeting among the Contrabands. A correspondent of the Boston Transcript describes a prayer meeting among the contrabands at Fortress Monroe. We copy as follows : The whole exercises were rendered decorously—"decently and in order," verging at times undoubtedly, upon the ludicrous : but so simple, earnest and unaffected ; so free from the fear of man, so inspired with the . love of God—that " perfect love that casteth out fear"—that if any man came to scoff, they learaed to respect the devout piety of those, the humblest chiidren of our common Father. I must admit that our risibilities were sorely tried by the chorister, a perfect squab, black as ebony, with open vest displaying a broad white shirtbosom, with snow-white dickey reaching above his ears, and the sharp points almost over his nose, " deaconing" out the hymns from memory, and in perfectly rapt uncon- sciouaness of everything around him, pouring all the fervor of the negro's emotional nature kilo the mangled fragme...
▲ Lesson in Emancipation, [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 26 April 1862
▲ Lesson in Emancipation, i Tho experience of Russia in the eman- ! cipation of hor twenty millions of serfs is decidedly adverse to that gradual approach to jnstice and to right which It was supposed the magnitude and the difficulties o the undertaking required. The nine yeors compromise with Slavery which the ukase of emancipation demanded, in order to fit these Sclavic slaves for the freedom which it bestowed upon them, is found to be a failure—a failuro so utter and so miserable that the nobility,the slave holders themselves, are petitioning the Czar for immediate emancipation. In an address to the Emperor, recently .presented* the noblesse of the Government of Moscow, after reminding him of their devotion in 1812, beg leave to suggest that it is necessary, in border to render the great measure of emancipation more just, and to secure from it its legitimate frnits, that the elective principle should be extended to certain offices, executive and judiciary, that the right of prope...
Shy look in a New Guise. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 26 April 1862
Shy look in a New Guise. To please the tyrranous spirit of the age and country, England's greatestpoet wrote the " Merchant of Venice." In the distorted character of " Shvlock," the Hebrew people were exposed by the hand of genius, to the hatred and derision of a nation, in which they are denied the privileges of men, where the tyrant's foot was upon their necks, and his spittle upon their garments. The Hebrew, mourning for his departed natural glory, shunned the theatre, for fear of being insulted by the coarse ribalds, who rejoiced at the discomfiture of the exacting Jew, never thinking that Jonathan and David, Ruth and Rebecca were of that despised and persecuted people. But the Israelite was patient; mark how he was avenged ; how ne has wrought his golden toils about his oppressors, until he has bound an 4 wrested from them the keys of the national treasury. Entering the bank of England, he now asks in triumphant irony, " Hath not a Jew eyes ? hath not a Jew hands, senses, organ...
