The Vinoibility of Prejudice. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 26 April 1862

The Vinoibility of Prejudice. THE PACIFIC APPEAL. BAN FKANQISCQ : SATURDAY, APRIL 26, 1852. I An idea has long prevailed that prejudice . is invincible, and to such an extent has it gained credence that it is looked upon as a self-evident proposition. The whites, from ( a natural love of arbitrary rule, yield to its seductive influences, and the blacks sue- . cuinb before its baneful power ; liberal , men deplore its existence, bat take no , measures to eradicate the evil ; the vicious , rejoice in the power it gives them to oppress a race already borne to the earth with cruelty and injustice, and endeavor to perpetuate it: aU classes, without examining into it or analyzing the subject, take it for granted that it is instinctive, therefore in- ( vincible. Hence, between irresolute friends and virulent foes, we suffer all the indigni- , ties which prejudice can heap upon us. We have shown, in former numbers of our paper, its origin—Slavery—and we will now endeavor to show that it is ...

Triumph of Oppression. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 26 April 1862

Triumph of Oppression. While we rejoice in the triumph of free, dom at our national capital, we mourn our failure at home. The bill to restore to us our judicial rights, we fear, is lost in the Senate. True, the Assembly right nobly triumphed over oppression by a decided majority, and we had strong hopes of success in the Senate, but the vote on Thursday has almost caused us to despair this session. On that day, our just prayer was retusod by a vote of 15 to 13, but two majority against us, and in favor of depriving Colored Americans and Christians of the right of Testimony, and leaving us victims to every lawless ruffian who choose to murder, rob' and op press us.Our hopes are blasted for this year, bul our failure must urge us to renewed ef forts. Next year we will assuredly sue ceed. The people of California are right ly disposed, as our success in the lower house plainly shows : tho Assembly are right from the people, and of the people, and we believe next year the Senate will b...

Oorrespoudenoe. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 26 April 1862

Oorrespoudenoe. "The Work Goes Bravely On!"— Our friends continue to write us of the favor with which our little sheet is received. Our Agent in Victoria thus expresses the approval of the colonists: "We were highly pleased at the reception of your paper. In this growing and thriving town, which will soon be a city, we do not require 4 appeals,' but we will sustain you in your generous undertaking of supporting liberal institutions. " I send you a list of subscribers, and we intend to add a few more in my next, with, perhaps, a few comments on the state of our colony. Except my regards. " Yours in the cause of freedom.

Communications. For the Pacific Appeal. I Petaluma, April 15,1862. Mr. Editol—l did not promise you a horse nor a saddle, but if you'll take a ride with me in a mail-wagon, I will pledge myself to give you one of the best shakings down you've had in a lifetime. Well I Here we go ! in the 7-o'clockmail line, for Santa Rosa. Billy has got the reins ; there is no danger of a turn-over : but I will not assure you that you will not find out the quality of the soil up here. The morning broke beautiful; all nature seemed gay —birds chirruping from every leafy bough. Now we are flying by beautiful orchards, fields of waving grain ; now we arc passing the old Petaluma Brewery, where we've quaffed many a mug of ale in days gone by—it is now a standing monument of the past. The next scene which breaks to our view is the beautiful villa of Mr. Doyle, on our right. Next we run up before the Magnolia : the " Doctor" is on hand to serve out the choice brands of the vineyards. Will you smile?* 0, y...

Among other calamities growing out of the recent floods, was that of the loss of life. Janes Burris was one of those who lost his life in that sa J disaster. About the sth of March, vague rumors were afloat that ho was not to be found. His friends, however, supposing him to bo on a visit to this city, were not particularly diligent in their search for him. His brother William, re" ceiving this Intelligence, at once repaired to Sacramento, and to his horror found him a few feet from hie own door beneath the devouring waters.

Poetry. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 26 April 1862

Poetry. For the Pacific Appeal. Abolition of Slavery in D. C. Thank God ! from our old ensign Is erased one mark of shame, Which leaves one less to rapine, One less to blight our fame. For two and sixty summers Has our broad escutcheon waved, Amid the ceaseless murmurs And wails of the enslaved ; But in the blest hereafter Shall our oft afflicted ears, Be solaced with bright laughter, With gladsome praise and cheers. For freedom's altar's basis 1 ' More permanent Bhall be, When rid the gaunt embraces Of fell barbarity. ****** If Congress hath the power To expel from ten miles square The Goliah of the hour, And charge the tainted air With the pure breath of freedom, As to baffle all return, Should she not e'en from Sodom The vaunted monster spurn f Soaring like distant waters Which no power can repress, Up from ten thousand quarters. Comes the responsive yes! Yes! yes; Our nation's banner We should purge from all its stains, Nor yield to might nor manner, Till Right triumphant reigns...

PfeaHantattt. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 26 April 1862

PfeaHantattt. ▲ Nuptial Tragedy. A wealthy merchant of New Orleans had married a Creole lady of fortune, and with the estate and servants came into possession of a mulatto seamstress and her daughter, a child at seven years. The gentlemen was so much struck with the extraordinary beauty of the child, which had the purest Italian features and complexion, that he resolved to save it from a life of degradation which was before it, and to free it and educate it. He sent the child to a Northern school, and there she remained until her sixteenth year—by all supposed to be a patrician Creole maiden. She herself knew not to contrary, so young was she when sent to the North. Beloved by all her companions, the idol of the institute, and caressed by all, she left it, to return South, as she supposed, to the roof of her uncle A young Louisiana gentlemen, who had seen her in Philadelphia, and loved her, and was beloved by her, sought her hand on her return. The day for the marriage was fixed, na...

A Poet on Chaucer and Bhakspeare. , [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 26 April 1862

A Poet on Chaucer and Bhakspeare. , Chaucer's range is as wide as that of Shakspeare—if we omit that side of Shakspcare's mind which confronts the other world, and out of which Hamlet sprang ; and his men and women are even more real, and are more easily matched in the living and breathing world. For in Shakspeare's characters as in his language, there is a surplusage superabundance; the measure is filled out and running over. Romeo is more than a human lover : and the stabbed Mercutio more than a mortal wit. The,kings in the Shaksperian world are more kingly than earthly sovereigns ; Rosalind's silvery laughter was never .heard, save in the Forest of Arden. The madmen seem to have eaten of some " strange root j" no such boon-companion as Falstaff, ever heard earthly chimes at midnight ; the very clowns are transcendental, with startling scraps of wisdom springing out of their foolishest speech. Chauoer, lacking Shakspeare's excess and prodigality of genius, could not so err : and h...

EDITORIAL INSTRUCTORS. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 26 April 1862

EDITORIAL INSTRUCTORS. We are daily receiving advice from our good, kind friends, how to conduct our paper to make it succeed. We tell them, once for all, their counsel and advice is gratuitous and wholly unnecessary. There are some whose advice we need, and for which we will be always grateful ; to name them would be invidious ; they are the ones who modestly refrain from in truding their opinions on us until solicited. The cream of the joke is, no two of the dozen or more, who wish us to conduct our paper according to their plan, agree ; and as we cannot please all, we shall not try to please any. Their opinions are as diametrically opposite as the poles. When we make our paper an organ of personal abuse or pc litic il invective ; when we fail to advocate the cause in which we arc engaged in a firm, calm, dispassionate manner ; when we swerve from a course of direct interest to our people, let us sink into that retirement from which we emerged, and which is most congenial to our h...

j&Urtums. Restoring the Union by Extinguishing Slavery. Extractfrom a Speech by Carl Schurz, delivered at the Cooper Institute, N. Y., March Uh, 1862. I shall have to speak of Slavery, and I wish you would clearly understand me. . I am an Anti-Slavery man. [Cheering.] All the moral impulses of my heart have made me so, and all the workings of my brain has confirmed me in my faith. [Loud applause. Hear, hear.] I have never hesitated to plead the cause of the outraged dignity of human nature. I could not do otherwise ; and whatever point of argumeut I might gain with any one if I denied it, I would not deny it, I shall never deny it. [Applause.] And yet, it is not my lifelong creed, which would make me urge the destruction of Slavery now. As an Anti-Slavery man, I would be satisfied with the effect the course of events is already producing upon Slavery. When formerly I argued iu favor of its restriction, I knew well and clearly that as soon as the supremacy of the slave-in...

Curious Intelligence in a Slave. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 3 May 1862

Curious Intelligence in a Slave. " I lived in the family of a Cotton Plan* ter who worked from fifteen to twenty hands. He employed no overseer. During the planting season he gave hid personal • attention to ' the field work of his slaves, but during the rest of the season contented himself with inspecting their work once a week, or the like, and carefully questioned them at night as to their work during the day. This he commonly did through one of the older and more trustworthy slaves, whose name was Allan. Cotton picking lasts some three months, the hands going over the field once a week, and oftencir, if possible, so as to gather the contents of the freshly opened balls before it is bleached by the sun, or soiled by the rain. My host entrusted the weighing to Allan, who was required to report at night the amount picked by each man- Allan just weighed with the common steelyards each one's basket—4nd the picker must use the same basket through the season. This weight of the basket ...
