Obituary. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 20 December 1862
Obituary. Let us speak of a man as we find him. They are still passing away. Another philanthropist has left us—a man who knew no man for his color or country. He looked upon all men as God's people. Marshall Underwood is dead. Your correspondent has known him for some years, and wherever the helping' hand of friendship was wanted, who was there to give it ? Why, Marshall Underwood. I have been an eyewitness to many of his acts of kindness to the afflicted and unfortunate, from the AngloSaxon race to the children of the flowery kingdom of China, yet he was a descendant of the shores of Africa—a man, a man 1 Underwood has passed from us in the 51th year of his age, and from what I can learn from those who stood around his bed in his last moments, I have no cause to doubt but that he has gone to his Father in Heaven, to receive the reward for his work done on earth. As all nations love their good men, why not the sons of Africa love Underwood? We havelost.oneof the strong props that s...

jMerttotw. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 27 December 1862
jMerttotw. JDaniel Webster penned the following sentiment: If we work upon marble, it will perish ; if we work upon brass, time will efface it; if we rear temples, they will crumble into dust; but if we work upon our immortal minds —if we imbue them with principles, with the just fear of God and our fellow-men—we engrave on these tablets something which will brighten to all eternity."
2 ' "" """"" The Future of the Colored Bace in America. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 27 December 1862
2 ' "" """"" The Future of the Colored Bace in America. (Concluded.) Though the negro of this country may not be of the best races of Africa, yet lie is not of the worst, and, as we shall have occasion to remark, he has had influences exerted, both as to race and character, which much more than compensate for any possible inferiority of descent. We may fairly take the estimate of the native African as we find him at his best estate at home, and build a promise of the future of the African here upon it. The African character has its own marked and distinctive peculiarities. It is tropical. It has passion, deep and pervasive, slumbering within a rounded form and deep, dreamy eyes. It is ductile and plastic, ready to receive impressions and be shaped by them. It does not possess the hard, aggressive features of the tribes of Northern Europe ; it does not seek by conquest to extend its power, or to mould other people to its form. It is adapted to receive rather than to give. It is there...
Southern Rebuke to Foi'nando Wood's! and John Van Buren's Peace Party of the North. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 27 December 1862
Southern Rebuke to Foi'nando Wood's! and John Van Buren's Peace Party of the North. THE PACIFIC APPEAL. SAN Fit AN CISCO : SATURDAY, DECEMBER 27, 1862. The Richmond Dispatch of Nov. 10th, in an article on "The Elections in Yankeedom," says : They (the Democrats) believe restoration still possible. In this respect they do not manifest their usual sagacity. They leave the incredible folly to believe that there still links among the body of that people who have fought against the Union as men never fought before, a secret attachment to the old flag, which is the most detested of all earthly symbols to the whole body of the Southern people. They do not reflect that while, to them, the condition which it is intended to represent has been productive of unalloyed blessings, it is associated in the Southern mind with images of commercial poverty and sectional oppression. To this imagined feeling of latent loyalty to the Union they are willing to appeal. They have no doubt that they wlil be ...
Christinas. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 27 December 1862
Christinas. This time-honored holiday Avas generally observed by all classes in our city, whether Gentiles or Jews. The weather was all that could be desired for pleasantness, On Christmas Eve the attractions of the season outside were so numerous that a large number of persons were drawn from their homes to the various places of amusement, and multitudes, as usual, attended the church solemnities, the music of which was superb. At midnight, Grand Mass was held at St. Mary's Cathedral, by a choir of 40 vocalists and instrumentalists, which was crowded to excess. At 11 o'clobk, A. M., it was repeated. There was also midnight Mass at St. Francis Church, Vallejo st., Notre Dame, Bush st., and St. Patrick's, Market st., &amp;c. At Mr. Lacy's Congregational Church, on Christmas night, the sublime oratorio of " Messiah" was splendidly rendered by the Handel and Haydn Society ; and during the day and evening nearly all the Protestant Churches had appropriate services, and were well...
11- ' The Census and Slavery. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 27 December 1862
11- ' The Census and Slavery. The census is an evangel against slavery, and its tables are revelations proclaiming' laws as divine as those written by the linger ol' God at Mount Sinai on the tables of stone. For TO years we have had these census tables, announcing great truths more and more at each decade. They are the records of the nation's movement and! condition, the decennial monuments mark-' ing her steps in the patli of empire, the ora-j eles of her destiny. They are prophecies, lor each decade tuliils the predictions of its! predecessor, 'they annoiflice laws, not made by man, but the irretrievable ordi-l nances of the Almighty. We cannot, with' impunity, refuse to obey these laws. For! every violation, they enforce their own pen-1 alties. From these there is no escape for the present or the past, nor for the future, except in conformity to their demands. These laws condemn slavery ; and the punishment for disobedience is recorded in the result of every census, and finally ...
12 Emancipation and Aboltiion. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 27 December 1862
12 Emancipation and Aboltiion. r l liesc are used as convertible Yerpis, meaning; the same thing, whereas tlioy may, and, in the great questions now before the country, really do mean very different things. It is assumed that the Proclamation of the President will abolish slavery alter the lstot January in all the States which may then be in rebellion, but this is a mere assumption, not sustained by anything in the Proclamation itself, or by any word or action of the President or Congress. Neither the President's Proclamation n&lt;,r any act of Congress can abolish the institution of slavery in any State where it legally exists, without the concunent action of the State itself. Thus, if by virtue of the 1 roclaination all the existing slaves in South Carolina are emancipated, the right to hold slaves still remains, and may be exercised by the people of South Carolina whenever that State is again in the Union. The Proclamation merely takes from them the slaves they now own, a...

ipttet (Tdcippluc §£$$♦ A caucus of the Senate had requested the removal of Mr. Seward, Secretary of State and Mr. Chase, Secretary of the Tmisury] an I a reconstruction of the cabinet, whereupon Seward aud Chase resigned,' but the President declined to accept their resignation, and they again conditionally resinned their duties. Gen. Burnside has reported the resuit of the battle of Fredericksburg, and takes the responsibility of the action himself. The President has thanked the army for their gallantry on the occasion. The rebel loss in one division alone is said to have been 4,000 —perhaps 10,000 in all. New Yohk, Dec. 28.—The Times' Washington dispatch says : It is not well for the public to cherish an illusory hope that the Cabinet imbroglio is settled. Mr. Seward to-day declared to one of his friends that his resumption of ministerial duties was made to be dependent on two conditions, the nonfulfillment of which would compel his resignation. These conditions are not stated. ° ...

s For the Pacific Appeal. The Bondsman's Hope. v In that far off land where the wrong is felt, Where the lord of misrule has ever dwelt— Whore never a ray of hopeful delight Had pierced the thick gloom of that moral night Till the bow of promise, all bright and clear, Betokening the day of redemption near, Encircied the heavens, and the languid eye Grew intensely brignt, but it knew not why ; Nay, it knew not why it had brighter grown Till an angel sped from a distant throne, And solved the bright bow and its blest intent, Which God through the wrath of vain man had sent. Then the millions drank with an eager ear The glorious news of the unborn year, [fast And their heurts beat quick and their pulse was As the nightshades told that a day had past— J hat a day had past and the truth revealed Of the proud decree being unrepealed— That a day had past and a record made In the Book of Time of its light and shade ; l»ut still there would sweep through, the anxious mind, The query, Oh ! wi...
SthttiM. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 27 December 1862
SthttiM. Frse Labor.—ln Delaware and Maryland there are over 100,000 free negroes, living 1 under all the disabilities and restraints which rigid law can impose. Have they shown any disposition to make any exodus North? Not the slightest. Their is nothing to prevent their coming into Pennsylvania if they should take a fancy to our institutions ; but they prefer to remain, and do remain, where they are. Furthermore, a bill was introduced into the Maryland Legislature, ft few years ago, to exclude free negroes " 14 from llie State, and it was defeated, on the ground that the labor of the free negroes was essential to the farming interests of the State. It must be clear, that, deprived of the labor of their slaves, the rebels must soon be forced to succumb. If it be impossible to bring them to an acknowledgment of their allegiance in any other way but by emancipating the negroes, is it therefore a necessary inference that the latter will invade the North, and reduce our people to subje...
