 Why do you think the file is not loaded?
(Rather than something else overriding your default face setting?)

Have you checked the Aquamacs FAQ?

Well, that shouldn't happen, except, when, perhaps the color name "Midnight Blue" is not available.  Color names have changed slightly in Emacs 23 compared to Emacs 22, and of Aquamacs 2.0 inherits that.

Otherwise, try  "Start Aquamacs without customizations" from the "Help/Diagnose and Report Bug" menu.
