Jfaleftifltti [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 7 March 1863
Jfaleftifltti A Greek maiden being asked what fortune she would bring her husband, replied in the following beautiful language: "I will bring him what gold cannot purchase —a heart unspotted and virtue without a stain—which is all that descended to me from my parents." Poverty is no disgrace. ~ 2 " From the Colonization Journal. Commissioners of the Liberia Government to the Colored People of the United States. The Commission, under which Messrs. Rev. Alexander Crummell, Rev. Edward W. Blyden, and J. D. Johnson, Esq., came to the United States from the Government and People of Liberia, last summer, which will be found below, shows the earnest desire entertained in that Republic for an in. crease of population from this country. We have reason to know that, by large confereaces of the African Methodist Church in Baltimore, Philadelphia and Newark, N. J., this invitation was received with favor, and that thousands would have responded, had a means of conveyance, not opposed by their p...
The Testimony Bills; [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 7 March 1863
The Testimony Bills; THE PACIFIC APPEAL. SAN PK AN CIS CO : SATURDAY, MARCH 7, 1863. On Thursday last, the Assembly passed the Senate bills 2 and 3, allowing colored persons to,testify in "the Courts of Justice in this State, in civil and criminal cases, wherein white persons are parties. The laws disallowing this right were enacted in 1850 and '51, by such spirits are now at the head of the rebellion against the Government. We thank Almighty God that He has endowed our present rulers with a sense of justice that has prompted them to take upon themselves the responsibility of removing this foul stain from the statutebook. In behalf of the colored people of California, we return our thanks to the Legislature. We have no words of reproach for those of the minority who would still persist in keeping us down on the level of slaves, notwithstanding our acknowledged loyalty to the Government and love of our native country. To such we would only use the language of the great American poet,...

The Pctaluma Argus of the 4th instant, without timidity, speaks out thus boldly, before the passage of the Testimony Bill: Reason vs. Prejudice.—The long talked of and much abused Negro Testimony Bill, having passed the Senate, and been reported favorably by the Judiciary Committee of the Lower House, will come up for final action, in the Assemby at an early day. It is to be hoped that our Assemblymen will rise superior to the dictates of blind passion and prejudice, and in this instance follow the promptings of reason and common-sense. There never has, and there can be 110 good and logical reason urged against this measure Those who give the measure their support must expect to have a certain amount of unanswerable epithets and inunendos hurl...

Communications. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 7 March 1863
Communications. For the Pacific Appeal. Mr. Editor—Colored men have never been deficient in loyalty and patriotism, and they have always been ready at their country's call, to give evidence thereof. In the Revolution, the days that tried men's souls, they willingly offered their lives to battle for their country's freedom, of which their only portion was slavery. In the war of 1812, they joined the army and navy of the Republic, and fought valiantly, as the records of many a battle-field and naval victory will testify. The Mexican war did not find them laggards, for, wherever the banner of their country waved, there were they found in the thickest of the fight. In the present holy war, which freedom is waging against oppression, right against wrong, they have done good service ; although, at first they were rejeeted as volunteers, still they have been prominent on almost every battle-field, and whether, as individuals or in separate organizations have proved their fighting qualities...
The State of the Country. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 7 March 1863
The State of the Country. Mr. Editor—Can our nation be saved 1 Yes, it can U«M»ved, But $smi it be saved from its wickedness and will to oppress apd enslave ? The rebellion, horrifele as it is, is . not so bad as the cause of the disease. Look, for a moment, at the various symptoms of the disease, The Fugitive Slave Act was a symptom, the Missouri compromise and its repeal was another, the expulsion of the Indians from their hunting grounds, to make more room for slavery, was another. A. natiou so wicked as to hold millions of human beings jn where they are denied all the rights of mfen and women, and sold from the top of the hammer to the highest bidder, must surely arrive at the point of war or rebellion, and God will continue to ' be at war with her until the cause is swept from the land; but this has been prescribed by William Lloyd Garrison for more than 30 years. Repentance is the pnly remedy, and when she (the country) shall repent for her wrongs done in holding, during her n...

frtertfonu. Unkind Words—lf all unkind words were arrows, like needles and pins, and if, instead of piercing the ear and the heart, they flew against the bodies of those to whom they wore directed, the children in some men's families would be like pin-cush-ions, stuck completely full of sharp and painful weapons.
Citizenship of Colored Americans. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 14 March 1863
Citizenship of Colored Americans. The following comments on the late decision of Attorney-General Bates on Citizenship, we find in the Independent of Jan 1st, 1863: Our readers have probably seen the recent and remarkable paper of the Attor-ney-General affirming the citizenship of persons of African descent in our country. The question of the political status of such persons was brought up for decision by the fact that the Treasury Department was compelled to pronounce upon it in the case of a colored master of a vessel, whose ship had been seized for engaging, without authority in the coasting trade. The Department referred the matter to the Attorney-General, Mr. Bates, for his decision ; and that officer, in an opinion of elaborate and exhaustive reasoning, examines the whole subject, and decides in the favor of the citizenship of such persons. The opinion is a remarkable document on many grounds. Its complete and decisive character, would at any time attract attention to it as au...
Prejudice. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 14 March 1863
Prejudice. 0 ; THE PACIFIC APPEAL. SAN FRANCISCO: SATURDAY, MARCH 14, 1863. , , We understand that two of our most re--1 spectable females were denied seats in one of the city railway cars on last SaturdayThey had been in the lower part of the city, : at the residence of a family where a death had occcurred. They had got into the car, at Fourth and Folsom streets, and none of the passengers made any objection, as their appearance indicated propriety and respectability. But the driver insisted that they " should get out." Now, for the short distance that these cars run in the city, we do not believe that any reputable colored man among us would attempt to intrude himself inside of a car filled with ladies. But there are matters of business in which colored men are employed and for which they are sometimes dispatched to the suburbs of the city, and to avail themselves of the advantage of a railway car would be important, even if it were on the platform with the driver. In such cases, ...

Public Meeting. Pursuant to notice a public meeting was held, on Monday evening last, in the Church Building, Scott st. Rev. T. M. D. Ward was elected President. After the election of Secretary, the President stated that the object of the meeting was to take into consideration the propriety of giving a public expression, by resolutions or otherwise, of our sense of gratitude, for the passage through the Assembly of the Senate's Testimony Bill or Bills. The reverend gentleman also made an appropriate and eloquent address, which was received with much applause. Mr. Barbadoes desired the call of the meeting te be read, stating, that he thought the meeting premature, until it was ascertained that tho bill relating to testimony iu criminal cases had passed the Assembly. The call of the meeting being read, Mr. S. Burris offered a motion that a committee of 15 be appointed to draft resolutions expressive of the sense of the meeting in relation to the passage of the Testimony Bills by the L...
