fCatwt lekgraphie New York, Dec. 3.—The Time* 1 Washington correspondent says : Davis to-day opened the campaign on the part of the Border State politicians, and will call up his resolution as soon as he can get the floor. The movement is regarded as one of great significance. Wickliffe, of Ky., has prepared a resolution, which he will offer in the House at the first opportunity, providing for a Committee of Inqniry into the late political arrests. The opposition evidently consider the question of arrests as one out of which much political capital can be made. Gen. Banks embarks tu-day on the steamer North Star. Nothing is known as yet as to the destination of the expedition.

Jrtettian*. To be REMEMBERED.-Reader, did you know that every column of a nawspaper contains from 10,000 to 20,000 distinct pieces of metal, the misplacing of any one of which would cause a blunder or typographical error ? With this curious fact before you, don't you wonder at the general accuracy of newspapers ? Knowing this to be the fact, you will be more disposed, we hope, to excuse than magnify the errors of the prefla. 1
The Future of the Colored Baoe in America. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 13 December 1862
The Future of the Colored Baoe in America. (continued from no. 35.) What is true of the African continent has been emphatically true of the people. The world has always seen the African race in its lowest form. This seems true as far back us Egyptian monumental times. One is struck, when looking at copies of ancient hieroglyphics, with the degraded type of negro feature which always appears when these captive people are delineated. The African race seems to have been fated to be always represented by a slave, and, as was inevitable, it has been judged by the example seen.. But the researches of travelers have, of late, compelled us to reverse many if not all these conceptions. Africa gives us, indeed, perhaps the lowest type of humanity in the Bushman or Hottentot, yet the explorations of travelers have also shown these are not the true and normal examples of African stock. It cau readily be seen that wherever the African character is measured by the standard of an African slave, th...
Colonisation—Suggestions by a Slaveholder. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 13 December 1862
Colonisation—Suggestions by a Slaveholder. A " Slaveholder" writes to the Missouri Democrat as follows : " The subject of emancipation, which now occupies so conspicuous a place in the public mind, and in wbich slaveholders are particularly and most deeply interested, is perhaps not fully understood and appreciated ; and it is from a desire to possess a full understanding^pf the plan of emancipation, as propoaed-by the Chief Executive, that your humble servant (a slaveholder) addresses these lines to you, believing, as I do, that you are ever ready and willing to convey any desired information upon matters of great and vital public interest. The prevailing spirit of insubordination which now pervades' the whole of the African race among us should cause every slaveholder to reflect upon the best measures to adopt in reference to our slaves. Shall we proceed to the exercise of cruelty and the infliction of sanguinary punishment, in order to check the growing spirit of restlessness in ...
Devotion and Heroism of ft Contraband. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 13 December 1862
Devotion and Heroism of ft Contraband. AN INCIDENT OF THE PENINSULAR CAMPAIGN. At the bloody battle of Fair Oaks, Va. f the rebels during the first day's fighting drove Gen. Casey's division from their camping ground, and rested for the night, confident that the morrow would give them a chance to drive the Yankee invader beyond the Chicahominy. But just at daylight that morning, Hcintzelman's corps reinforced our line, and at daybreak were hurled against the rebel foe. For a long time the issue was doubtful. The line swayed to and fro ; but at last the Excelsior Brigade —the he r v&gt;es of Williamsburg—were ordered to charge. That charge is a matter of history. It gave to us the battle-ground oi Fair Oaks. During the month of June, that brigade held the ground they won, and skirmishes with the rebels were of daily occurrence. One afternoon word was sent to Gen. Sickles that the enemy was advancing in force, and every preparation was at once made for battle. A few shots were...

The Conoert. THE PACIFIC APPEAL. SAN FH AN CISCO : SATURDAY, DECEMBER 13, 1862. On Wednesday evening last the long expected musical entertainment came off, as announced, in the A. M. E. Church. The Church was not crowded, but there was a larger array of the intelligence and respectabitity of our people than has assembled in this city for several years. Some ol our friendr are disposed to find fault because the house was riot more densely filled. It is a fair estimate to state that there were at least 250 persons present, all of the highest respectability and intelligence. This, of itself, is a source of gratification, and we are willing, therefore/to make ourself contented with the manifestation, particularly when we see the people disposed to do their utmost for the sustenance af the Appeal. The admission fee was but 50 cts., hence the profits, after the expenses were paid, cauld not be expected to be very lajge. But with the continued approbation of those who composed the audience...
