(Communications. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 10 January 1863
(Communications. For the Pacific Appeal. San Francisco, Jan. 8, 1862. To the Committee of Ladies and others of the Fair lately given for the Benefit of the Baptist Church, Dupont st. : Brethren and Sisters and Kind Friends : Permit me to offer to your honorable body my heartfelt thanks for the useful presents which you have been pleased to favor me with. And while I wish you, one and all, a happy New Year, may I ask that you will all join with me in prayer for those who have so long suffered under the oppressive yoke of slavery ; and now, my dear brethren and sisters, I would say, that, in the present year, we all look forward to the happy day when we shall sec those who have so long been held in bondage set free, to become useful to themselves and to all those who may surround them.

Judge Holt on Slavery. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 10 January 1863
Judge Holt on Slavery. The Hon. J. Holt having been invited to speak in New York city upon the election, wrote a letter to Mr. Barney, the Collector, from which we make a single extract : My faith is simple and briefly stated. It is this : For all things that are for the Union—against all things that are against it. lam for the Union unconditionally, as I am for protecting my own body, at every cost and hazard, from the knife of the assassin. No human institution, no earthly interest ever by me shall be weighed in the scales against the life of my country. Least of all will I approach with unsandaled feet, or permit to be thus weighed, an institution, the foundation of whose being—the African slave trade—the laws of my country have 40 years denounce as a crime worthy of death—a crime not against any particular foTm of civilization, but a crime against the very race to which we belong. I yield to no man in veneration for the Constitution, or in determination that its' blessing shall ...

12 gfetot Stbgraphic St. Louis, Jan. (s.—The succession of battles between Rosekrans and the enemy at Stone's river lasted five days. The fighting was terrific throughout. At the close of the sth, the rebels were defeated and routed The enemy was 50,000 strong, well appointed, and fought with desperation. Our victory is complete. The loss is great on both sides. The rebels abandoned their dead and wounded on the field, and liosekrans' victorious army now occupies Murfreesboro. Our whole loss will exceed 10,000. The rebel loss is double ours. A number of the best bulitlings at Nashville have been taken f&lt;»r hospitals. The Tribune says editorially that a letter from a well informed source at Paris states that, a few days before th« letter was written, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Prouyn de l'Huys, visited the Emperor, and advised him that a modification of the policy of the Emperor was required by the public voice ; that he could not change, therefore he tendered his re...

l We've Happier Days in Store. BY M. K. H. 1. I yet shall see you smile again, As you were wont to smile, Before the heart was crushed by pain, Or bowed by toil awhile. On that pale cheek I yet shall see, Life's roses, as of yore. Those eyes resume their brilliancy— We've happier days in store. 2. Though with the monster, grim Despair, Too oft compelled to cope, Shall we forget that angel form. Whose heavenly name is Hope ? Who sweetly whispers, 'midst our griefs, " Take courage, sigh no more." And bids us on her anchor lean ?— We've happier days in store.

s The Weddinc-kim; Finger.—This is the fourth finger oil the left hand. Why this particular digit should have received such a token of honor and trust beyond all its congeners, both in Pogan and Christian times, has been variously interpreted.— "The most common explanation is," according to Sir Thomas Browne, " presuming therein that a particular vessel, nerve, vein, or artery, is conferred thereto from the heartwhich direct vascular communication Browne shows to be anatomically incorrect. Macrobius gives another reason, which may, perhaps, satisfy those anatomists who are not satisfied with the above. " Pollex," he says, "or thumb, whose derivative palleo, and from its Greek equivalent antichier, which means " as good as a hand," is too busy to be set apart for any such special employment ; the next finger to the thumb being but balf protected on that side, beside having other work to do, is also ineligible ; the approbium attaching to the middle finger, called me,diem, puts it ent...
