Communications. For the Pacific Appeal. Our Destiny. BT DB. E. R. J.—NO. XXIII. When Christopher Columbus and his crew had been long on their voyage of discovery without sighting land, they perceived a bush coataining red berries floating on the surface of the water, and they were assured that land was not far off. some of the crew eat the red berries, and died in consequence : so the very tree that gave life and hope to some of the ship,s company, was death to those men who ate the poisonous fruit. For centuries our race have suffered from slavery, prejudice, ignorance and poverty. Our path has been thorny. We have met a skeleton at every corner.. We 8 have struggled to overcome .the indignities which obstruct our passage in almost every avenue of lite. Our task has been of an Herculean order. We have strained onr patience to its utnost tension. Yet we did not despair. Our faith was founded upon the principles of eternal justice. We now behold the olive branch. Those who oppressed ...

Important Test Question at St. Louis— The Emancipation Proclamation. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 14 March 1863
Important Test Question at St. Louis— The Emancipation Proclamation. xuo jauiauvipauuu a a uwiauia uuil« St. Louis, Jan. 29.—1n tho case of Benj. Williams, a colored man, indicted for grand larceny before the Criminal Court, to-day, the question whether he was a free man or a slave at the time of the larceny, on the 6th of January, was argued at length—the penalty in the former case being incarceration in the penitentiary, in the latter corporeal punishment. The evidence elicited proved that he was born a slave, in Mississippi, but previous to his arrival in this State, two or three months ago, he was the property of Major Thaelkim, of Arkansas, who, at time was a prisoner of the Union forces Judge Clover delivered an elaborate decision, declaring that the said prisoner is a freeman by virtue of the President's proclamation, and being once free is forever free, the Judge knowing of no power or law by which a man being once emancipated can be again enslaved.

Selections. An Autograph.—Lady Franklin was induced, says the Vancouver Chronicle, to affix her signature to the following, written by some enthusiastic individual: " Vancouver is noted for soft water, an abundance of food, love for God, and respect for her neighbors." In the Calif(ft-nia State Treasury, on Saturday week, there was $399,385 40. 2 Reported for the Pacific Appeal. SPEECH OF HON. GEORGE BARSTOW, OF SAN FRANCISCO, In the Assembly, March 4, 1863, on the Testimony Bills. Mr. Speaker—This is a question of right and wrong, arising between the strong and the weak, and it is to be settled by the strong. The question before us is this: Shall a handfull of obscure persons be oppressed by power, or protected by a principle which is above power—l mean the principle of justice—the instinct of civilization? We are called upon to declare that persons liable to commit the same crimes as others, and to be subjected to the same penalties, taxes and injuries, shall havfe the same safegu...

Oup Duty. THE PACIFIC APPEAL. SAN FRANCISCO ; SATURDAY, MARCH 21, 1863. As the Testimony Bills have now passed both branches of the Legislature, and as we will hereafter be under the protection of the law, in all our dealings and actions in the respective localities in which our people reside, we should be more guarded than ever against committing any acts that might be construed, by the enemies of our advancemeut, as a consequence of the repeal of those unjust laws. There are many aggravations which white men have to put up with, without resorting to the law, and we must expect to put up with similar aggravations, also, without resorting to the law We should be patient and conciliating, avoiding quarrels and all causes of passionate resentment. And we must not always suppose that every offence that 'may be committed against is altogether in consequence of our color. In our business intercourse throughout the community, if misunderstandings or frivolous disputes arise, rather resort...

Ward, chairman of the meeting on the evening of the 9th inst., being absent, Solomon Peneton, Esq., was elected chairman, pro. tem. The minutes of the last meeting were read and approved. The chairman called for the report of the committee on resolutions. Mr. Burris, chairman of the committee, not being prepared to make a final report, made a satisfactory statement why he was unable to get the committee together, and on motion the committee was discharged from further duties. Mr. P. A. Bell moved thai there be a special committee appointed, and hoped that it would be limited to a smaller number than that just discharged from duty, giving as his reason that a large committee, like that appointed at the last meeting, was too cumbersome.

Communications. For the Pacific Appeal. Napa City, March 17, 1863. Mr. Editor —The death of the late Wm. B. Farrell is much to be regretted by his many friends. Mr. Farrell has fully solved the question as to the ability of parents to give their children a good education, if they are determined so to do I made this gentleman's acquaintance early in 1855, since which time 1 have been on the most intimate terms of friendshipijuth him, and I am enabled to write a upon his many virtues, and also for the encouragement of those who have children to educate. Mr. F. was a sober, indnstrious, honest, hard-working man, and with the assistance of his kind wife, he sent his son to a private school iu San Francisco, at a time when teaching was very expensive. This high price of educating was continued until his son was prepared for the college to he was sent some two or three years ago. There he has paid for his board and 10 clothing, and his friends will be glad to hear that he has graduated, a...

■gatot f tUjpphic jtewji. It is stated that tho Confederate loan was freely taken in the Continental market. A rorogee, who arrived within our lines to-day from Charleston, says the rebels have about 400 guns in position around the city. The west side is poorly fortified. A number of iron clad shore batteries in the harbor are mounted with the heaviest guns, and he thinks the city is impregnable from a water approach. The Express, of this city, states that Secretary Chase, 15th, was offered $100,000,000 in gold by European parties, which, at current rates of exchange, would be equivalent to par here. Yazoo Pass has likely gi\ us an advantage not heretofore appreciated. Officers just from the vicinity of Vicksburg say that stronghold must soon capitulate, or do worse. Cincinnati, March 14.—Accounts from Rosecrans are of a gratifying character. Washington, March 14.—The Government is in the r ceipt of a dispatch, from Rosecrans, announcing the evacuation of Vicksburg, according to inf...
