Ignorance as a Political Disability. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 28 July 1865

Ignorance as a Political Disability. In the re-organization of the late rebel States, if it is to make ignorance a disqualification for the franchise, let us be careful that we do not confound two very dissimilar things. If reading the Bible or doing a sum in the rule of three are to be the tests of fitness, let everybody be brought to the test. But is this the wish or the proposition of the gentlemen who are so anxious that the colored citizen shall he educated before he votes ? We have looked and listened very carefully, but we cannot discover that it is. We have heard nothing of disfranchising ignorant white men. We are, therefore, constrained to the belief that it is not the ignorance of the blacks, it is their complexion which is the real disability. Now ignorance and degradation at the South are not peculiar to the late slaves. The poor whites are hardly less wretched and ignorant. "The blacks are not all qualified to vote," remarks the Tribune. And how many of the whites are ...

The New Scliowl Presbyterian Assembly on .Negro Suffrage. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 28 July 1865

The New Scliowl Presbyterian Assembly on .Negro Suffrage. Rev. Dr. Ctiyler gives the following account in the Independent of the vote of the Presbyterian Assembly on this mooted question : " The culmination of enthusiasm was reached wben Ur. Spear presented his j 1 trenchant report in favor of negro suffrage. A member from the shores of I Lake Champlain expressed some honest doubts as to the expediency of an imuie- | diate investiture of the Southern freedI men with the rights of citizenship. This; | brought out half a dozen rejoinders, hot, | quick, and telling as a volley of 'canister.' ' Thompson, the colored commissioner, i claimed for his race an organized equality i I with the whites. 'We are practically inferior," said he, 'because we have never Tieen put into practice; but a natural,! j foundational inferiority we will not admit.' | Herrick Johnson, of Pittsburg, in a few! vehement sentences protested that every j oppressing race had charged the vietims j iof their wrongs wi...

Letter of Chief .Justice < hase to a Committee of Colored Men. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 28 July 1865

Letter of Chief .Justice &amp;lt; hase to a Committee of Colored Men. The following letter of Chief Justice Chase to a committee of colored men of New Orleans, explains itself: New Orleans, June 6, 1865. Gentlemen : —I should hardly feel at liberty to decline the invitation you have tendered me, in behalf of the loyal colored Americans of New Orleans, to speak to them on the subject of their rights and i : duties as citizens, if I had not quite re- | ccntly expressed my views at Charleston | in an address, reported with substantial i accuracy, and already published in one of! ; the most widely circulated journals of this city. Hut it seems surpurfluous to repeat j them before another audience. It is proper to say, however, that these views, having been formed years since, on ■ much reflection, and confirmed in new anil I broader application by the events of the j ! civil war now happily ended, are not like-, ly to uadergo, hereafter, any material change. That native freemen of w...

" A BRIEF REVIEW [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 28 July 1865

" A BRIEF REVIEW The telegraph works spasmodically.— | Considerable news lias come over the wires lately, but not much of general import. We give a brief abstract uuder the proper head. The war does not appear to us to be ended, nor rebellion suppressed. They have commenced reconstruction on disloyal principles. If rebel soldiers are allowed to mumble through oaths of allegiI ance, and vote Lee's officers into important offices, and if Legislatures, elected by such voters, are allowed to define the provisions of the Amnesty Proclamation, theu were our conquests vain, and we may soon expect the re-establishment of slavery in its most hideous forms, to l&amp;gt;e followed by the worst of all wars—a servile insurrection— 1 preceded, perhaps, by another rebellion— but not of the South this time ; the North will rise and demand their rights as con-j querors—the right of submitting terms to; the conquered. Instead of pursuing a system of "liberal, but judicious hanging," as recommende...

Indorsement of Our Position on the Suffrage Question. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 28 July 1865

Indorsement of Our Position on the Suffrage Question. " We are doing a great work and cannot come down" to notice the fulminations of tiic traitorous Examiner and the tirades of the uuderlings uf the Copperhead press, | the insane ravings of disappointed " Ambi- j jtion and Stupidity," nor the snarlings of every novice who wishes us to write him into notoriety. In the great work to which we give our humble aid, we have the cooperation and approval of our best and wisest men, the support and assistance of a majority of the Union papers in California, and the cheering influence of true loyal citizens. We have erected our platform of "Equality before the Law," one of the planks of which is, right of suffrage to all loyal citizens, irrespective of color. On that platform we stand, side by side with the ablest and most influential papers in this and the adjoining States. We give below an imperfect list of those journals which not oly profess loyalty to the Union and the Government, but p...

A Traitorous Sheet [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 28 July 1865

A Traitorous Sheet The Examiner of this city appears to have three objects in view. First, to deify conspirators and assassinationists ; second, to degrade, ridicule and abuse the negro ; and third, to oppose and malign the Government. . To attain the first it endeavors to make a persecuted hero of the rebel chieftain, Jeff Davis,a demi-god of the regicide Booth, martyrs of Payne, Harrold, and Atzerott, and a model of angelic purity of that modern Jezebel, the Tullia Tarquinia of the nineteenth century, Mrs. Surratt, alias, Mother Damnable. We do not think it possible for any sane man, nor any one with even a modicum of intelligence, to believe what the Examiner daily teems with ; and the editor-of that paper is evidently no fool. He must, then, be of the other extreme—a knave, a traitorous knave of the deepest dye. His second purpose is to degrade and debase the negro below the standard of humanity. To effect this he publishes the most infamous lies, falsifies history, and would de...

Lisle Lester. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 28 July 1865

Lisle Lester. This lady gave an entertainment cm Monday evening, 24th instant, in Zion Church, Stockton street, consisting of poetic and dramatic reading. Miss Lester has a high reputation as an elocutionist— which she fully sustained on this occasion. Her voice is clear and distinct, and her enunciation perfect—particularly in the lower tones. Whitticr's " Maud Muller " was well worthy the price of admission. In pathetic tenderness, which is the chief characteristic of this poem, she reached almost to sublimity. "Sheridan's Ride" was also well given, and in a style which elicited merited applause. She brought out new beauties in this well known and deservedly popular poem, which can scarcely be spoiled by one wlu se patriotism can appreciate its import. Tennyson's " Charge of the Light Brigade" is not adapted to Miss Lester's physical ability ; she is deficient in force for a correct rendition of that very difficult piece. We have seldom heard it read to our satisfaction. It was, h...

AN ADDRESS TO CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 28 July 1865

AN ADDRESS TO CHILDREN. BY MISS ANNA DYER. Oh ! come ye wandering children, Come and listen to my call, Oh! come unto the school house, Be it either large or »small; For a little education Is better than none at all. Oh! come dear children, come and learn, This invitation take, And show the world what you can do, for truth and wisdom's sake. I know it seems quite hard to you To obey your teacher's will; But God can so instruct our hearts, Our duties to fulfil. And then when death knocks at the door, And bids us all prepare, To journey to that Heavenly shore, W here sin and sickness are no more, Nor sorrow, pain nor care, Then we should lift our voices high, In humble praise and prayer. Then Heavenly Father turn our hearts, To learn while we are young, That we may never feel regret, When youth is past and gone. The National Fast Day.—Juno Ist was observed in Boston different, perhaps, from any other place. It was the occasion of a grand military and civic pag-eant, in memory of Presi...

Selections from Eastern Papers [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 28 July 1865

Selections from Eastern Papers Suffrage Facts.—A Committee of the Executive Board of the Central Union Club of Brooklyn, having been appointed to consider the whole subject of reconstruction, report that they have come to the conclusion that " all the colored people of the seven disorganized States have a right to vote, which cannot be taken away from them by any power short of a State Convention, elected by the whole people of each State." In support of this ground, they submit the following important facts : "1. Tiie case of Georgia is a peculiar one, and one which admits of no doubt. The Constitution of that State prescribes no qualification for electors, except that they must be 'citizens and inhabitants' of the State, of the age of twenty-one years, and must have paid all taxes 'required of them.' The word 'white' nowhere occurs in the Constitution in connection with the right of suffrage. We quote from an edition prepared under the direction of the State by Howell Cobb, in 185...
