PROSPECTUS OP THE SECOND VOLUME OF THE ELEVATOR. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 30 March 1866

PROSPECTUS OP THE SECOND VOLUME OF THE ELEVATOR. The present number closes the first volume of The Elevator. In our last issue ; we gave a brief synopsis of what we had | endeavored to do during the past year, ! and what we believe we have, in some measure, accomplished ; and wo shall now as briefly state what course we shall pur- ! sue the ensuing year. When the Executive Committee gave the paper into our hands, there was a debt (>f about one hundred dollars on it, which | still remains unpaid, and which, instead of diminishing, has somewhat increased. Our : yearly subscribers had paid their subscripj tions, and we have had since to depend ! principally upon our monthly subscribers, which are not sufficient to defray the necessary incidental expenses. We will make The Elevator equal to what it has hitherto been, and if we could obtain the necessary assistance, and increased patronage, we will make it superior. We feel confident that we can do it—butwe cannot do it alone....

The Elevator as au Advertising Medium. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 30 March 1866

The Elevator as au Advertising Medium. Mr. Jas. R. Starkey, of this city, some ; five or six months ago advertised in The Elevator for his son, Alexander Starkey, * from whom he had not heard since he was taken from Newburn, N. C., to Richmond, Va., and sold to a negro trader, or speculator, when a child seven years old. Mr. Starkey has recently heard from his son, who is at Carralton, Mississippi. He is now twenty two years of age, and is married and doing well. Mr. S. also has a daughter, Nancy K. Starkey, who was sold at the same time, but in a different direction. She, too, has been recovered since the war ; she is attending school under patronage of her father. Our friend was very unfortunate in his early family j relations. In 1850 he purchased his own ! freedom for sevea hundred dollars, went j to New York, and in 1853 came to this State. While here he endeavored to raise money to purchase his family, but before he could accomplish his object, they be- • longing to a merchant...

TO THE FRIENDS OF THE ELEVATOR. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 30 March 1866

TO THE FRIENDS OF THE ELEVATOR. We wish to commence our next volume with an increased list of subscribers, which wc can only do with the assistance of our friends.

Extract from a Letter from Sacramento. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 30 March 1866

Extract from a Letter from Sacramento. Upon the debate in the Senate 011 the adoption of Senator Jones' National resolutions sustaining Congress and reflecting on the President for his veto of the Freedmen's Bureau Bill, Shaw of San Francisco, offered a substitute, endorsing the President and denouncing Radicalism, with true Democratic twang, which, of course, was rejected ; but before the vote was taken upon the adoption of the substitute, Senator Lovett, of Monterey, asked Senator Shaw to accept the following as an amendment to his substitute, which Mr. Shaw indignantly refused : Rasulct*.l wo ©©r<liiUly invito tho imrmpfration to this State of the worthy, sober and laboring Freedmen of tho late rebellions States. Of course, Senator Shaw refused the amendment—it would not hare been in ac--1 tion with his Democratic proclivities had lie accepted it.—Ed. El.

COMMUNICATIONS [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 30 March 1866

COMMUNICATIONS [For the Elevator.] " Watchman, What ot the Night ? In our last article we urged upo:. people certain duties, essential to su. and the Freedmen's meeting on Mo., la-. I evening, 12th inst., at Zion Church, malic taken as an indication of a fetter d.'iy fur our race. We predicted, too, that there was a glimmer of light in favor of the coining day, which recent evidences from the East confirm. By a telegram of the 17 th inst., we perceive the unexpo; t< I position taken by Senator Stewart, of Nevada,—this is the first yielding to the pressure of public sentiment, and will doubtless be followed by hosts of others. When the great American heart shall become properly awakened to stern duty, and the awful consequences of its neglect, we need have litle fear of ultimate justice. I am forced to admit that to the superficial observer the price we may be requir ed to pay may seem enormous at the first glance ; but upon mature reflection it will not seem so very frigh...

• The Fool and liis Folly.'' [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 30 March 1866

• The Fool and liis Folly.'' We confess that we are so obtuse that we cannot see any real wit in the distor- : tions of Artemus Ward, Orpheus C. Kerr, J Petroleum V. Nasby, Josh Billings and others of that ilk.. There is evidently | humor, but to us, humor without wit | soon palls. We like a little of it, but too | much nonsense is more than we can bear, ; hence we never copy their abortive at-! tempts at wit and humor. Artemusj Ward has put the cap sheaf 011 his folly. He has long since run out of common sense, and he has now literally as well as j literaturaly played himself out. We' copy the following as an evidence of his! disloyalty as well as folly : Artemus Ward in a Charitable Role.— The Augusta (Ga.) Constitutional id says: "While in New Orleans, it may gratify our readers who love and venerate ex-j President Davis to kuow, that Artemus Ward gave one lecture for the exclusive benefit of that great man's wife." Charles P. Browne, better known as Artemus Ward, has a perfect r...

EMIR HASSAN [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 30 March 1866

EMIR HASSAN Emir Hassan, of the prophet's race, Asked, with folded hands, the Almighty's grace. Then within the banquet-hall he sat, At his meal, upon the embroidered mat. There a slave before him placed the food, Spilling from the charger, as he stood, A wkwardly upon the Emir's breast Drops that foully stained the silken vest. To the tioor, in great remorse and dread, Fell the slave, and thus beseeching said: " Master, they who hasten to restrain Rising wrath, in paradise shall reign." Gentle was the answer Hassan gave : " I'm not angry." " Yet," pursued the slave, " Yet doth higher recompense belong To the injured who forgives a wrong." " I forgive," said Hassan. " Yet we read," So the prostrate slave went on to plead, " That a higher seat in glory still Waits the man who renders good for ill." " Slave, receive thy freedom and behold In thy hand I lay a purse of gold, Let me never fail to heed, in aught, What the prophet of our God hath taught.

Senator Stewart Converted to Radicalism. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 30 March 1866

Senator Stewart Converted to Radicalism. The only matter of interest in the Senate on Saturday was the conversion of Senator Stewart of Nevada, to radicalism. After Stewart's speech, in which he announced himself as a new convert to the necessity for colored suffrage, saying it was the only guarantee for permanent: peace and security, Till - . Sumner said : " 1 welcome the Senator with open arms to universal suffrage." Senators Yates and Wilson tendered a similar welcome, Mr. Wilson saying there was no doubt Mr. Stewart's proposition would be favorably considered both by the Senate and House. Stewart's Reconstruction Plan.—Senator Stewart, of Nevada, has presented the following : Whereas, In the consideration of the present distracted condition of the country, it is eminently proper that all Constitutional means be employed for quieting popular excitement, the removal of all unreasonable prejudices, and the obliteration of hostile feelings growing out of the late unhappy civil war ;...

Items From the Japan Herald. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 30 March 1866

Items From the Japan Herald. If the past week has nt)t been prolific in great events in Yokohama, it has been one of almost universal enjoyment, and it is a generally expressed opinion, that since foreigners were admitted to Japan, no New Year has been ushered in so merrily. The weather has been charming in j the extreme, and all has been joyous and bright. On Tuesday at half-past two r. m., a meeting was held at the house of H. Turner, Esquire, of the members of the Volunteer Pony Corps—at which a committee was appointed, and preliminary rules adopted There are already 87 members enrolled. Their first drill parade was called for this afternoon. On Tuesday, also, a most delightful evening's amusement was enjoyed—at a "Lectural Entertainment" given by a well known and much appreciated member of our little society, in the large silk room at No. 12. There was a very full attendance, and altogether it was the pleasantest evening of a public character that we have known in Yokohama. Slav...

TELECRAPHIC SUMMARY. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 30 March 1866

TELECRAPHIC SUMMARY. Washington, March 17—The President has directed that forty thousand colored troops be mustered out during the next month. The Nashville papers contain a letter from Gov. Brownlow to Wm. D. Kelly, member of Congress, dated on the 8th, wherein he says : "When Richmond fell and surrendered, the rebels and many who sympathized with them were very re spectful to Union men, and often obsequious. Guilty culprits, they evidently feared arrest and punishment, and felt that to be let alone and allowed to live was all, they had a right to expect; but since pardons have been so multiplied, and no man has been punished, they have where become impudent and defiant, until in most counties Middle and West Tcr.n< di<s ; utable to 1 iv» been a Uni' n v ;i, or, as a Southern man, to have serveu in the Union army ; and matters are growing Reconstruction trait'>rf are opc.ly <ursiij* loyal men, and threatening them With shootir.g or hangin...
