Obituary. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 3 January 1863
Obituary. Peparted this life, on the 2(itli ult„ after a short and severe illness, J,uu:s Stevens. We have known him for many years. He was born in the City of Washington, I). C., and our first recollection of him was 25 years ago, more or less. He was then living in the family of John Q. Adams, formerly President of the U. States, who thought much of him. He has filled many situations of trust, and has always won the confidence and esteem of his employers. Among his own people he was loved for his noble qualities of heart. liberal to a fault, frank but courteous in his manners, he was always ready to assist the needy, administer to the sick and bury the dead. First and most interested in every move for the bettering of the condition of his own race, we shall keenly feel his loss. As a son he was devoted ; for many years he supported an afflicted mother, who suffered and died from that fell disease, consumption. He leaves one brother, whose afflictions from the cradle rendered him a...

frtcctions. The following is one of the grandest sentenses in our language: "The tall mountains are the sublime apostles of nature, whose surplices arc snow, and whose sermons are avalanches." A Paist Mine. —A mine of ochre and other materials, necessary to the manufacture of paint, has been discovered on a farm near Martinez. It promises to be a rich mine to its owners. We believe that only in Sicily is there any other such mine.
r._ _2 Tho War Power and the Supreme Court. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 10 January 1863
r ._ _2 Tho War Power and the Supreme Court. Already the pro-slavery organs, arc discussing the legal validity of the proposed emancipation under the war power. The World intimates, boastfully, that, on the return of peacc,&lt; the Supreme Court of the United States will decide the Proclamation of Emancipation unconstitutional. This shows the importance of th(* Judiciary as Senator Hale, durjrig the last session of Congress. With such tools of tyranny, as Judge Taney and his pro-slavery associates in possession of authority and power to nullify all the acts of the Government, and override all the most cherished desires of the people, it is in vain to think of maintaining our liberties or saving our country, by mere force of arms. As the Judges hold their offices for life, unless impeached, and removed for misdemeanor, it may be thought difficult, under the Constitution to reach the evil. But Mr. Hale pointed out, clearly, the remedy. Though the Constitution provides, in gene...
Result of One Tear's Work Against the Rebellion. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 10 January 1863
Result of One Tear's Work Against the Rebellion. This time last year, Beauregard was encamped at Mannassas. The rebels were virtually in possession of all of the slave States, except Delaware and Maryland. A violent minority in the latter, indeed, was only kept down by the strong hand. In the Southwestern States, we had no footing anywhere but at St. Louis, and even that place was menaced by Sterling Price. Kentucky was thinking of neutrality. The actual condition of things was, that though the Government had announced it to be its intention to crush the rebellion, Washington was really besieged by the armies of Jeff. Davis. To some it may appear that 3- 3 - nothing has been done, because a rebel army still contests the way to Richmond, bat let us see if such be tlie fact. In the first place, Western Virginia has been cleared effectually of rebels, and ia now a ffee State in the Union. 2. It has been demonstrated that Marylalfyls really as loyal as Maine. The genop«K' impression was...

" Marching On!" [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 10 January 1863
" Marching On!" THE PACIFIC APPEAL. SA N Fit AN CISCO: SATURDAY, JANUARY 10, 1863. Never did we expect to live to see the day when freedom would be proclaimed to the enslaved millions of our race. Though the "irrepressible conflict" has been viewed by citizens, politicians and statesmen as sure to result in favor of freedom, yet the most wise and prophetic have been incapable of foreseeing the eventful day of January 1, 1863—a day that, from henceforth, will give the nation a more powerful impetus in its ascent than even the mighty Declaration of Jefferson of July 4, 1776, that sent the cheering notes of liberty and equality resounding over the globe, tfuaking tyrants tremble on their tottering thrones—declaring that " life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" were rights inalienable to all mankind. From henceforth America Bends forth renewed greetings to the chcrished and tried friend of her youth, and has accepted as her own the lost jewels of France—" Liberty, Equality, Fratern...

Patrick for several New York and Panama papers of the latest dates. Acknowledgment for a similar favor is also due to Mr. Wm. H. Hall.
