LINES [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 30 June 1865
LINES From the Anglo African To Her who will understand them. "If I dream that you love me, You'll surely forgive."— [Byron. When I tell thee I dream thou dost love me, Thou surely will not angry be ; Tho' I know that my sighs cannot move thee, Thou still art the same unto me. ---- In visions thou dost hover around me, As fair as the fresh-blooming rose; When I wake from the sleep that has bound me, I long for such charming repose, When o'er me the bright dawn is shining, I fancy I see thy loved face; And when evening's sun is declining, In the dimness thy features I trace. Thus ever, when waking or sleeping, Thou'rt near me by day and by night; And while Memory her treasures is keeping, Thy presence will gladden my sight. Cosmopolite.
Chief-Justice Chase and the Colored Loyalists of Charleston, [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 30 June 1865
Chief-Justice Chase and the Colored Loyalists of Charleston, Recent advices from Charleston bring the intelligence that a peace meeting to have been held on the 10th inst., in Hibernian Hall, was broken up in confusion, it cause of the presence of one hundred and fifty colored men, who insisted on their right to vote on any question that might come up before the house. At this juncture, Chief-Justice Chase arrived in the city, which fact becoming generally known caused the disaffected spirit to show itself less. On the following Friday the Chief Justice visited some of the leading citizens, and everywhere expressed himself favorably to granting suffrage to the black man. On the afternoon of the same day an audience of 5,000 or 6,000 colored peole, and about 500 whites, assembled in Zion Church, and were ably addressed by Major General Saxton, and Assistant Inspector of Plantations and Settlements, Mr. Tomlinson, both of whom advised the colored people to contend for petition and all...
Shall we Tolerate slavery! [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 30 June 1865
Shall we Tolerate Slavery? The Emancipation Proclamation of President Lincoln declares that no person shall be held in involuntary servitude, — except for the commission of crime against the law. That is now a National Statute, and all the venom of rebellion being exhausted, it shall stand immutable through the future existence of America. It is founded upon a broad principle: the principle that freedom of thought and freedom of speech beget freedom of action. Horses, cattle, etc., are creatures possessing neither reason nor speech; therefore let them be made to work when the will of their masters so decree. But man, whether black or white, Caucasian or Ethiop, has speech and reason, therefore he shall be the judge of whether he will work or not Speech is the great pivot on which emancipation turns; no slavery shall be imposed on him who can reason or speak. In the early days of our State, attempts were made by the horde of Southern politicians in our midst, to force slavery into ou...
Submitting to "Manifest Destiny." [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 30 June 1865
Submitting to "Manifest Destiny." Col. E. J. C. Kewen, of Los Angeles, six months ago one of the most violent Copperheads in California, has declared himself in favor of negro suffrage. He says this is the verdict of the war, and we must bow in submission to the behests of the times. The Colonel is correct. — Individual efforts and opinions are power-; less to stay the mighty tide of freedom ind equality now sweeping over the land, , Prom the 1) ad Sea of rebellion. Daily it,] increases in force and volume, and those ; who oppose it, blindly consign themselves j to political destruction. There is noij mistaking the bent of popular opinion ' throughout the North to-day. It is writ-1 &lt; ten in lines as legible as the promise of! God, and blind indeed must he be who cannot read it. Whatever our individual ] opinions or preferences may be is a matter of little moment now. The great ques- . tion is beyond the control of the press, of j, -talesmen, of parties.

The Day We Celebrate. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 30 June 1865
The Day We Celebrate. We have long desired to celebrate our National Anniversary as an American citizen. While others were rejoicing at the return of the day on which a Nation sprang into existence full of life and vigor, when she Hung aside the swaddling bands of Colonial dependence, and took "her stand among the nations of the earth," we felt saddened that we could not rejoice with them; but we mourned over the degradation of our country and the thraldom of our race. Now, however, we can rejoice. In the midst of our debasement, when almost an eternal night of gloom hung over us; ! when the chains were tightening on our limbs, and the snap of the slave-driver's ' whip was sounding in Northern ears; ( when we feared that the threat of the j slave oligarchy, that they would call the roll of their slaves from Bunker Hill, would ere long be verified; then, amidst the booming of cannon and the din and ' noise of contending armies, " Where mingles war's rattle With groans of the dying,''...

"A Second Daniel Come to Judgment" [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 30 June 1865
"A Second Daniel Come to Judgment" They have held a public meeting in Petaluma, Sonoma county, and appointed an Executive Committee, which is a good move. They resolved that in their "opinion jt is inexpedient to call a Convention."— They have, of course, a perfect right to express an "opinion " on any subject. But the cream of the joke is, they " adopt the Pacific Appeal as the California organ of the colored people." Hear ye ! all the color ed people of California, miners and ditchers, farmers and mechanics, whether ye dwell in the City of the Plains, or on the summit of the Sierras ; be ye residents of the Athens of California, in the beautiful Valley of Santa Clara, or are denizens of the great Metropolis, from the Big Grove, or where Los Capatino rears his hoary head, and looks down in solemn granduer upon the lonely vale of the Yo Semite, even to where the Golden Gate opens wide its mighty portals to admit the commerce of the world—hear ye !

C I R C IT LAK. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 30 June 1865
CIRCULAR The Executive Committee appointed at a meeting of the Colored Citizens of San Francisco, on the 24th of January, present the following Address, explaining the origin and object of their appointment. The difficulties which attended our celebration on the first of January, and indifference too often evinced by the people generally in public affairs, induced many to believe that a permanent organization, or an Executive Committee appointed by the people for one year, and a similar committee elected each year, was necessary for the better conducting of public business, such as calling meetings on important occasions, and to take a general supervision of public affairs. At a meeting held on the 6th of January to hear the final report of the Celebration Committee, a motion was made to elect an Executive Committee of thirteen members. A Nominating Committee was appointed, who reported at a subsequent meeting, of which due notice was given. That meeting confirmed the selections mad...
