s [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 4 April 1863
s From the London Spectator, Jan. 31. Anti-Slavery Meeting in London. The week has been full of signs of a coming change in public opinion. The civil war in America has become an antislavery struggle, and slowly but certainly English opinion is swinging roUnd to its true position—a passive, but unqualified dislike of all who contend for human bondage. Last week a public meeting in Liv. erpool, the stronghold of slavish principles and slave-owning prejudices, endorsed Mr. Lincoln's proclamation. This week, Bristol, where the slave trade lasted longer than in any port in Great Britain, has affirmed the right of emancipation ; in Bradford, a meeting, larger than any held for years, unanimously passed resolutions pledging those present to the extermination of slavery ; and in London, Exeter Hall has been crowded with scholars and working men. The smug Bourgeoisie, who take the Times' exposition of Christianity for gospel, are beginning to doubt, whether, after all, they would like to be...
Our Second Volume. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 4 April 1863
Our Second Volume. THE PACIFIC APPEAL. SAN FRANCISCO : SATURDAY, APRIL 4, 1863. With this number wc commence our second volume. One year ago, our little sheet was established as the central organ of our people of the Pacific coast, to enable them to set forth their views on the current events of the day, and bring to public notice the many disabilities under which they were laboring. Though public opinion had changed greatly in favor of removing the disabling statutes, and other features of the times obnoxious to our people, still it could not be expected that newspapers not devoted to our entire interests would repel every slander and disability under which we were suffering, or discuss with bold, ness every measure appertaining to our welfare. It remained for us as a people to set forth statistical and other information on our own behalf. Hence the establishment of tho Appeal. The great events that are now transpiring, and tho conspicuous position which many of our race are now oc...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 4 April 1863
From the Boston Commonwealth. Colored Recruits—Gen. Fremont—Philadelphia Statistics. Philadelphia, Feb. 24th, 1863. Your Governor means to have the first* black regiment in the field from the free States to be commanded by Col. Hallowell, of this city, we hear. If the Governor cannot fill the regiment, let him correspond with Governor Curtin of our State, with a view to his co-operation. Hurry it up. Let it with others be in the field as quickly as possible, and Gen. Fremont at their head. The question is asked, will the colored men enlist ? There are three classes. First, the escaped slave ; he will be very likely to, and should be the first chosen. Next, those that have always been free. They justly say " what if we do ? Are we to be bettered ?" Many of these will make fine officers. The third class, those liberated by " will" of their master, or their own exertions, hesitate, but will enlist with proper inducements, and some of them will make the most energetic assistants. Give t...
The Duke of Argyle on Slavery and the Bible. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 4 April 1863
The Duke of Argyle on Slavery and the Bible. At the annual meeting of the Bible Society of Scotland, held at Edinburg lately, the Duke of Argyle presided, and made a speech on the subject of Bible circulation and interpretation. Arguing that the Bible cannot be safely trusted to the interpretation of any existing church, but must be left to the individual conscience, he instanced the recent declaration of the Episcopal Church of the Southern States of America, that negro slavery is a system on which they ought to plant their national life, and that abolition is a crime, as showing how little churches of any kind cau be safely entrusted with the authorative interpretation of the Scriptures. " I really believe," said his grace, " that it would be very difficult indeed to exagerate the evil and the mischief of such enunciations of opinion as this coming from any Christian church. We must remember that the light of Christianity has spread beyond itself. There are thousands of men in the...

s In the case of a free negro, named Archie Webb, recently arrested in Ohio under the State laws prohibiting colored people from entering the State, a writ of habeas corpus was sued out, and Judge Gray, of the District Court, decided that free negroes were citizens under the Constitution of the United States ; that Webb was a free negro and that he therefore must be discharged as the State laws under which he was arrested was null and void, being contrary to the Constitution of the United States. A Call by Frederick Douglass to Take TJp Arms for the Union Cause. To Men of Color. When first the rebel cannon shattered the walls of Sumter, and doove away its starving garrison, I predicted that the war then and there inaugurated would not be fought out entirely by white men. Every month's experience during these two dreary years has confirmed that opinion. A war undertaken and brazenly carried on for the perpetual enslavement of colored men, calls logically and loudly upon colored men t...
