From the New Yoik Ledger, FATE OF HENRY IKDsON. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 23 March 1866
From the New Yoik Ledger, FATE OF HENRY IKDsON. Among those whose lives have fallen a sacrifice to the adventurous spirit of discovery, there are none whose stories exi cite wore melancholy interest than those of Sir John Franklin and Henry Hudson Separated by an interval of over two hundred years,,both fell martyrs to the same 1 cause. On the 2Gth of May, 1845, the J former set sail from England in command of an expedition designed to effect, if possible, a solution of the question in relation to the existence of a "Northwest passage,"—a problem as fruitful of interest to the navigator a3 the discovery of the sources of the Nile has proved to the inland explorer. Two months afterward he was seen in Baffin's Bay. Evir since, j the most persevering efforts, stimulated by the constant exertions of a heroic and devoted wife, have failed to penetrate the mystery which surrounds his fate.— V\ hether he perished a prisoner amid impassable barriers of " thick-ribbed ice," I or fell a victi...
Keiiiarkuble Peculiarity of Frost* [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 23 March 1866
Keiiiarkuble Peculiarity of Frost* Fro t is the only exception to the law &gt;f nature, tliat lu at causes bodies to expand and cold to contract them. It is one of the properties of heat, that it causes all bodies to expand. If you touch the bulb of a thermometer the mercury rises, the heat which it received from y&lt; ur thumb and finger causes it to expand. The tubular bridge over the Menai straits is lengthened on a Summer day is much as tlir&amp;e inches ; and, if you notice, j'uu will find that the iron rails upon which the trains run are never placed with their ends touching, in order that, when heated by the sun, they may have room to obey this law of nature. Clocks ro slower in warm weather than they do in cold, because then their pendulums are longer ; and often, in a frosty night, your watch gains many minutes, the cold having contracted the balance, causes it to move more quickly. No otlur examples need bo given; suffice it to say tint every substa...

AN APPEAL TO OUR FRIENDS. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 23 March 1866
AN APPEAL TO OUR FRIENDS. We have made arrangements to purchase type and material for a printing office for printing The Elevator; all we want now is the money. We have $'250 pled ged, and we want $250 more. Will not our friends assist us in this very necessary undertaking? Are there not twenty-five men, either in city or country, who will give or loan $10 each towards our enterprise? We think we can count that number who can abundantly aflord it, and wc hope they will respond to our appeal. " Now will we try the touch." We will next week write to our friends in the interior, and make personal application to parties in this city, colored and white, to sec if we can raise the amount required. Among the business enterprises conducted by colored men in California, there should be a printing oflice. We have smart, intelligent boys who are desirous of learning the ''Ait preservative of arts," but such is the prejudice (it is abating, however) that printers, although favorably disposed, c...
QUALIFIED SUFFRAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 23 March 1866
QUALIFIED SUFFRAGE. President Johnson has declared in favor ; of qualified negro suffrage. In his letter ; to Win. L. Sharkey, Provisional Governor of Mississippi, dated August 15th, 1865,1 he says : "If you could extend the elec-' tive franchise to all colored persons who ] can read the Constitution and write their \ names, and to all colored persons who own real estate valued at not less than $250, and pay taxes thereon, you would completely disarm all adversaries, and set an example to the other States, who will follow." We arc in favor of equal suf- j frage. We do not wish to see one law | for the white man, and another for the i Mark. \Ve would like to see the above | qualifications apply to all voters ; but, on i the principle that " half a loaf is better than no bread," and as we are not in a, posit ion to dictate terms, we would willingly accept of these qualifications—pro-, |vided, however, that all who have borne arms, or who have rendered the Govern- j ment service during...

Fieedmeus Commission ill Bacrameiito. Two meetings were held in Sacramento liist week, and auxiliary Societies formed.

COMMUNICATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 23 March 1866
COMMUNICATIONS. [For the Elevator.] The Tax on Churches. Mr. Editor : —The question before us, under this title, may be fairly put thus: A certain revenue is needed for the purpose of carrying on the Government.— Now in looking about for subjects of taxation, a legislator finds a certain class of property or persons on which a tax may be laid. The issue then between the financier and the party called on to supply the necessities of the State, is simply, solely this: whether the scheme proposed, or any other, is preferable. But if any other, let the party assessed produce the other. It remains with him to furnish a better one—one better, with a view to the good of the commonwealth, not with a view to the selfish interests of a sect, or profession, a society, or an individual. But whenever a measure is suggested by which the general interest is proposed to be served at the expense of the interest of a small, influential portion of the community, we are always certain to hear the sylla...
