s Save your Rags.—The unprecedented high price of paper, in consequence of the scarcity of rags, or rather the other more profitable uses to which it has been found they cau be put, makes the saving of rags an object worth the attention of every family. Let a rag-bag be hung in some suitable place in every house, and throw into it all your rags. It is economy and it will pay. Try it. , 2 From the Anglo-African Magazine. Citizenship. Two circumstances are remarkable in the discussions which have stirred the public mind in regard to the Dred Scott decision. One is, that the statement by Judge Taney, of what he believes to have been a prevalent opinion 70 odd years ago, has been tortured into the authority of a dictum, if not a decision of the present Supreme Court of the United States. The statement is, that negroes had no rights which white men were bound to respect. It is hardly necessary to say that Judge Taney did not utter this sentence as his own opinion, much less the opinion o...
Limitation* to Man's Knowledge. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 31 January 1863
Limitation* to Man's Knowledge. The narrow limits within which human knowledge is cenfined are well set forth in the following narrative, told by an allegorical personage in an old Arabian work. It contains a sharp rebuke to that self-suffi-ciency which thinks its own range of knowledge complete and absolute : 1 passed one day by a very ancient and wonderfully populous city, and I asked one of its inhabitants how long it had been founded. " It is indeed a mighty city," replied he, " we know not how long it has existed and our ancestors were as ignorant on this subject as ourselves," Five centuries afterwards, as I passed by the same place, I could not perceive the slightest vestige of the city. I demanded of a farmer, who was gathering herbs upon its former site, how long it had been destroyed. " In sooth a strange question !" replied he. " The ground here has never been different from what you now behold it." ' "Was there not of old," said I, "a splendid city here ?" " Never," answ...
The Engrossment of the Testimony Bill in the Senate. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 31 January 1863
The Engrossment of the Testimony Bill in the Senate. THE PACIFIC APPEAL. SAN FRANCISCO: SATURDAY, JANUARY 31, 1863. Both branches of the Legislature are composed, more than two-thirds, of Union members, of whom we believe a large majority, at least, are disposed to eradicate from the statute-book the disabilities that have so long prevented us from testifying in the courts of justice in this State. We believe that few will hesitate in placing themselves on the " record" for this act of justice to the colored man. We are aware that it has been out of the power of the actual majority of the people of the State to have their will expressed by many members who have heretofore been sent to either branch of the Legislature. The men who dictated and enacted those Mississippi-and-South-Carolina sections to the Civil and Criminal Practice Act of this free State, are, many of them, away frcm the State and in rebellion against the Federal Government. The overwhelming Union sentiment and loyalt...
Citizenship. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 31 January 1863
Citizenship. On our first page will be found an able article on Citizenship by Dr. J. McCune Smith, one of our representative colored men in New York City. After the Dictum of Chief Justice Taney in the Dred Scott case, this article from the pen of Dr. J. McCune Smith appeared in the May number (1859) of the Anglo-African Magazine. It is said that the reasoning of Attorney General Bates on the citizenship of colored persons is identical with that of the Doctor. We regret that we have not space to publish it entire this week. Our agents will please collect for the month of January and remit. We hope that those of our subscribers who have been and "are delinquent, will voluntarily settle up. All must see the necessity of a newspaper organ among us. To sustain it we must give encouragement financially. We expect the expenses of the paper, at least, from subscribers. But when the subscriptions are withheld by those who prefer to be delinquent, it cripples our efforts. What is due the pa...
CORRESPONDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 31 January 1863
CORRESPONDENCE. Stockton, Jan. 27,1863. Mr. Editor—Having seen in your last number a notice of our Emancipation Celebration, I take the liberty of sending a few lines, giving some of the particulars. The colored citizens of Stockton celebrated the President's Emancipation Proclamation of Jan. Ist, atßaynor &amp; Paterson's Hall, on the evening of Jan. 22d. The evening was one of the most disagreeable that we have had this winter. At an early hour darkness spread its thickest mantle over the city, a gale blew steadily from the southwest, and the rain fell incessantly ; yet, despite contending elements, at the hour appointed an unusually large number of persons were assembled. The assembly was called to order at 8 o'ciock by Mr. S. B. Serrington, President of the day. The exercises consisted, in part, as follows : Prayer, by the RevPeter Green ; reading of the Peesident,s Proclamotion, by Mr. A. Brown ; Columbia the Gem of the Ocean, sung with much effect, by Miss Mary Anderso...

Cmmuunicatums. For the Pacific Appeal. Jottings. Victoria, V. 1., Jan. 20, 1863. Mr. Editor — Wo visit your columns again ; and all here join in reciving Lincoln's Proclamation with welcome and joy. Whether necessity compels him or not to grant the boon of freedom, we must concede him the credit of debilitating the foe's stronghold. Victoria is making rapid strides and assuming the character of a great city. From morning till night the carpenter's hammer is heard. Teamsters and carmen exact $1.00 a load to any part of the city; it is profitable, by. all appearances. We have four churches: 1 Catholic, 2 Episcopal, 1 Congregationalist, and a Presbyterian in course of construction. St. John's (English Church) gave their "Annual Sunday School Festivalthe greatest harmony and good feeling prevailed. There were many colored children present, and many scholars attached thereto.. His Lordship, the Bishop of the Diocese, presided. We revert to emancipation. Let us consider its results and gl...

The Emancipation Guns—Willis Bond and William Brown, (colored) and John Costello, (white) were before Judge Pemberton yesterday, charged with participating in the firing of cannon from Beacon Hill, in honor of President Lincoln's Proclamation. The accused acknowledged participating in the firing, but claimed that they had permission lrom the Mayor to do so. Mr. Peinberton said that the Mayor had no control over the park, which was not included within the city limits, and the proper person to have applied to for a permit was the Acting Colonial Secretary. . The Court was glad to hear that emancipation had been proclaimed; thought the colored population had always behaved well here, and it was not the intention of the Court to impose a heavy penalty in this case. But firing from Beacon Hill, without due notice being given, was liable to create much mischief; a vessel might be in distress some night, and fire gun after ' 13 gun, and no attention be paid to it by the naval authorities w...

f For the Pacific Appeal. Think of Me, Dearest. IJY M. E, R., OF PETALUMA. Think of me, dearest, think of me! But not when pleasure fills thy heart: I would not thou shouldst think of me When thou in scenes of mirth tak'st part : But when, my love, the morn doth break, And song of bird and hum of bee, In passing hours, sweet music make, Then would I have thee think of me ! Think of me, dearest, when day is past, And night's thick gloom o'erspreads the lea, When Luna on the earth doth cast Her glowing light o'er land aod sea. Close not thine eyes in slumber then, U or seek to rest, till memory Shall call to mind an absent one, And thou can'st sweetly think of me 1

•latest fjw. He/hquarters Army of the Potomac, Jan. 26.—This morning Burnside turned over the command of the army to Gen. Hooker. As soon as the change was made known, the principal officers waited on Gen. Burnside and took leave of him with regret. Gen. Burnside issued a partinng address to the army. The Herald's Washington dispatch says, as one of the results of the recent Republican caucus, it is intimated that a demand for the reconstruction of the Cabinet will be urged with pertinacity, and that if a change should not be made before the Fourth of March, Congress, in imitation of the British Parliament, will pass a resolution declaring a want of confidence in the present Cabinet. On the Ith January, the United States sloop of war, Brooklyn, in company with 6 other Federal steamers, whilst oft' Galveston, saw a steamer in the offing, and the steomer Hatteras got underway to overtake her, and when within hailing distance asked who she was, and received as an answer : Her Majesty's...
