CORRESPONDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 13 December 1862

CORRESPONDENCE. New Westminister, B. C. Nov. 27, '62. Mr. Editor—Since my last letter 1 have not gathered any news of importance to write about, but as I had promised to write occasionally, I will make it convenient to drop you these few lines. The last of the Cariboo miners are about coming down now. There will be about 100 miners, who will winter in Caribou ; some are making preparations to winter in this town, others in Victoria and round about Washington Territory., There are many old Californians up heref who would like to return to California, but are somewhat timid about the drafting laws; the secession sentiment is very strong iu this country among the Americans here. ' ° We have just got a new steamer up here, to run on the Fraser river, owned by Capt. Irwin. The weather has been quite damp tor the past week, a dense fog hanging 1 over the town, to such an extent that the steamers could not navigate. Yours, &c. J. JNi. H.

Communication's. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 13 December 1862

Communication's. For the Pacific Appeal. The Concert. The Grand Concert given last Wednesday evening, for the benefit of the Pacific Appeal, was a very crtditable affair, but not so much of a success, musically, nor we fear financially, as we would have wished, nor as we anticipated. The selections were admirable, and the arrangements gave promise of a musical least which should have drawn a much larger audience. Of the singers, Mrs. Wilcox and Mr. J. G. Coursey were the principals. The anthem, " 0 Praise the Lord," was well rendered, in which Mrs. Wllcox, Miss E. E. Scott and Mr. W. H. 13 lake took leading parts and gave general satisfaction. ' Handel's glorious old anthem " I know that my Redeemer liveth" sung by Mrs. Wilcox, was well given and deserved all the applause it elicited. The gem of the evening was Russell's unique ballad, " The Old Sexton," by Mr. Coursey, who possesses a voice of unequalled compass, ranging from tenor robusto to basso prolnridi. His execution was admi...

Emancipation in St. Augustine. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 13 December 1862

Emancipation in St. Augustine. A New Hampshire volunteer writes home from St. Augustine, Florida, to the Independent Democrat that there are now but 500 negroes in that ancient city—generally superior specimens of their race—and thus proceeds : " Before the Rebellion, there were, I am told, over 1,000 slaves, representing about $1,000,000. About one-half of them were, before our troops came, taken into the interior and to Savannah and Charleston. The remaining 500 have been the principal means of support to about one-fourth as many families, who rent them out, at from $6 to $10 per month. They continued in this relation until about three weeks ago, when a state of things was brought about that is highly suggestive. The day after my arrival, Gen. Saxton, with his stafT and a missionary to the contrabands, a Methodist clergyman, called a meeting of the blacks, telling them that by an act of Congress they were free, and must serve their pretended owners no longer. This made them wild w...

Contrabands Wanted in the British West Indies. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 13 December 1862

Contrabands Wanted in the British West Indies. On the 20th of August, a public meeting was held in Georgetown, Demerara, when the subject of emigration of colored persons from the United States was discussed, and Mr. Walker, the Government Secretary, was appointed to proceed to Washington on a mission relative thereto. In allusion to the subject the Creole of that place remarks : " The utmost amount that an American immigrant will cost for his introduction is twenty dollars, and it is confidently expected that the cost will not exceed fifteen dollars per head—about one-eighth the Cost of a Chinese immigrant and about one-fifth .»f the cost of a coolie, while the American laborer is worth any two Chinese or coolies. " At the meeting on Wednesday one of the speakers, Mr. Winter, furnished some interesting statistics as to the relative cost of American and Chinese immigration taken in the gross. He showed that for the season of 1860-61, there were 3,267 Chinese immigrants introduced, w...

s Negroes ox the American Continent. —It is estimated that there are about 14,000,000 persons of African descent in America. In the United States they number 4,500,000 ; Brazil, 4,150,000 ; Cuba, 1,500,000 ; South and Central American Republics, 1,200,000.; Hayti 2,000,000 ; British Possessions, 800,000 ; French, 250,000 ; Dutch, Danish and Mexican, 200,000. 2 __ From the Independent. The True Southern Laborers. There is a systematic attempt malting for political reasons, to produce the impression upon the laboring classes of the North, and particularly upon the Irish, that if slaves were emancipated, they will come into competition with them ; and by glutting the labor market, will reduce the price of labor, and interfere with their wages. To unthinking men, there is so much probability in such statements as to demand examination and refutation. For if unprincipled men shall succeed in inflaming the passions of the laboring men in the North, and, to the hatred of race, shall add th...

Slaves in War. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 20 December 1862

Slaves in War. Practice of British Generals.—Noble Expression of Opinion by Jefferson.—ln a recent speech by Mr. Sumner, at Boston, in favor of the emancipation policy of the Federal Government, the speaker appealed to the practice of all nations, to capture slaves from the enemy, and to use them or liberate them in whatever manner was judged most conducive to the interests of tlie captors. Among the rest h« mentioned the appeals made by the British commanders in the revolutionary war, to the negroes, of whom some of the .descendants still reside in Nova Scotia. The effcct that this appeal had in the case of General Lord Dunmore, might, Mr. Sumner said, be gathered from a statement made in a letter of Washington, who remarked of his LoTdships campaign : " His " strength will increase as a snow ball by " rolling, and faster, if some expedient can- " not be hit upon to convince the slaves " and servants of the unpotency of his dt- " signs." But the most remarkably quotation made in th...

"Let My People 00. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 20 December 1862

"Let My People 00. If the instincts of patriotism did not prompt this support, I should find a sufficient motive in that duty which we all owe to the Supreme Ruler, God Almighty, whoße visitations upon our country are now so fearful. Not rashly would I make myself the interpreter of his will ; and yet I am not blind. According to a venerable maxim of jurisprudence, " Whoso would have equity must do equity and God plainly requires equity at our hands. We cannot expect success while we set at naught this requirement, proclaimed in the • divine character, in the dictates of reason and in the examples of hiatorj ; proclaimed _ 5 - also in the events of this protracted war. Great judgments have fallen upon the "country ; plagues have been let loose ; rivers have been turned into blood, and there is a great cry throughout the land, for there is not a house where there is not one dead ; and at each judgment we seem to hear that terrible voice which sounded in the ears of Pharaoh, " Thus sa...

The Proclamation in Congress. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 20 December 1862

The Proclamation in Congress. • e THE PACIFIC APPEAL. SAN FH AN CISCO : SATURDAY, DECEMBER 20, 1862". As we anticipated a short time before Congress met, factious resolutions have been offered, to deter, if possible, the President from declaring, on the Ist of January, what States or parts of States are in rebellion, and that the slaves therein shall be, from that day, forever free. On the 11th instant the first of these factious resolutions was offered in the House, " denouncing the Emancipation Proclamation as inexpedient as a measure, and a dangerous assumption of power on the part of the President." These resolutions were tabled by a large majority. To ascertain the feeling in the House of Representives on the subject, Mr. Fessenden of Maine, on the 15th inst., introduced the following resolution : * * * * That the President's Proclamation of the 22dof September, is warranted by the Constitution ; that emancipation policy as indicated therein is well adapted to hasten the restor...

The Recent Concert. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 20 December 1862

The Recent Concert. We refrained, last week, from saying anything editorially relating to tho Concert for the benefit of the Appeal. One of the reasons was, we preferred the criticism of our correspondeKt "Cosmopolite." We now revert to the subject only to say a few words that may not be amiss in relation to the highly interesting musical performances on that occasion. We think the anthems were well rendered : the selections were principally from Dyer's Anthem Book. The pieces were familiar and well adapted to the capabilities of the singers. The leading soprano, Mrs L. E. Wilcox, deservedly received the marked approbation of the audience. ; and herself and the other lady participants deserve the utmost credit for their perseverance in attending all the rehearsals, and endeavoring to have all the singing as perfect as possible, thus making their debut the more successful. The other soprano singers—Miss Laura Miller, Miss Lucy Caldwell, and Miss Sarah Cook—sang well and were well rec...

Mr. Editor—While reading your most valuable and estimable paper, a few days since, I could not refrain, in the fullness of my soul, from pouring out the contents of a heart overcharged with love and gratitude to Him under whose protection all the nations of the earth are to be blessed. Oh! to feel that the hour of our redemption is at hand—to know that the bonds and manacles of an unchristian and relentless policy are to be broken asunder, and in lion of the shrieks of mothers parting from their children—of groans of hardy men sweating beneath the stern oppressive lash, the song of love is to be heard and the chant of freedom to aseend, till even the vault of heaven resounds with the echoing cry of freedom. Brothers, let us pray for the success of that glorious banner, " By angel hands to valor given," But have we not a debt to pay in return for these endeavors ? Is it because the fetter has ...

10 The Rebels Threaten Desperate Things if the Emancipation Policy is Carried Out. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 20 December 1862

10 The Rebels Threaten Desperate Things if the Emancipation Policy is Carried Out. Washington, Nov. 21st.—A report is current here, and very generally believed, that Gen. Lee, of the rebel army, has recently addressed a formal message to Gen. Halleck touching the proposed issue of the emancipation proclamation 011 the Ist of January next. It will be remembered that after the exciting debates in the rebel Congress as to the propriety of retaliation, ~the whole matter was left to the discretion of the President of the Confederate States with instructions to take such measures as would compel the withdrawal of the proclamation, or bring home to the Northern troops some of the evils it threatens against the Southern people. It is stated that Gen. Lee's letter is exceedingly elaborate, and discusses the question from every point of view. •The points it is said to contain are as follows : Ist.—The unwarrantable nature of the proclamation, so far as the recognized measures of military warf...

_ 11 " The Union as it Was." [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 20 December 1862

_ 11 " The Union as it Was." This is a favorite expression of the Vallandigham Democracy. It is their central, vital idea. They want " the Union as it teas" in the days of the last Democratic President, or no Union at all. This catchword—notwithstanding its evident meaning is opposed to all progress, to all return to the principles of the Fathers ; notwithstanding its plain and only meaning is the Union with slavery forever established and guaranteed in half of the Republic, and with a fair prospect of swallowing up all the Territories —-has been generally . adopted by the locofo party. The journals and organs of that party have rung all the changes upon that phrase, and accused those who preferred the Union as it ought to be and will be—of being fanatics, radicals, as bad as secessionists. But henceforth and forever, this party catchword is spoiled, stale, out of date. There pan be no "Union as it was." President Lincoln's proclamation of emancipation has effectually squelched, cru...

12 ®tltgraphw gtut?. ; Washington, Dec. 12.—Official informa- ; tion that lias been communscated which warrants the assertion that the French Government has no idea of prosecuting ai y ' further their proposition for an armistice or mediation. The Navy Department has information of the capture of two English schooners off" the coast of Florida. They were sent to, Key West for adjudication. The Richmond Examiner says the preparations of the United States to subjugate the South are now truly gigantic. In the East, West and North, on laud and water, everywhere, and on all sides, the movements of the Federal army and fleets indicate zeal, hope, fanaticism, and a desperate avidity that should banish from every Southerner's mind all thought of an early peace, and nerve every loyal Southern hand for battle, v jj in which there will be no quarter. In the Senate, Mr. Davis offered a resolution, that after the insurrection against the United States was about to break out, James Buchanan, then...

13 Buchanan was taken up and debated at ! some length. Mr. Saulsbury moved that a copy be furnished to Mr. Buchanan, and he be allowed to defend himself, On motion of Mr. Grimes the whole matter was laid on the table by a vote of 38 to 3. The Times' correspondent thus describes the rebel position at Fredericksburg which our troops were expected to take : A bare plateau a third of a mile in width, which a storming party have to cross, in doing which it would be exposed to the fire of the enemy's sharpshooters posted behind a stone wall, running along the base of the ridge ; double ritle-pits on the rise of the crest of the hill, behind strong field works at the top of the hill, and a double enfilading fire from the cannoirto the left of the hill. This correspondent adds that Sebast'&amp;gt;pol was not half so strong as this rebel position. Jeff'.
