MIDNIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 26 October 1866

MIDNIGHT. BY \V. BELL. Sleep reigns around me everywhere. The winds, as if afraid To break the dream of a spray-perched bird, Sweep by unheard. All living things of earth and air In deep repose are la!d. Night triumphs now ! the ear can catch No earthly sour.d at all j The town is, as it were, beneath The stone of Death. I llow silent! even the drowsy watch j Forgets his wonted call. ! But hark ! the hour is struck ;it broke My trance of waking thought; Slow—heavy—and iDud upon the ear, j Like sounds of fear! | And a shadowy hand, at every stroke, Along my soul was brought. ! It is a solemn sound, the chime Of each departing hour— j So solemn, that the listener's mind Is all inclined To think the memory of Time D'-ells in yon ancient tower. °d t' Mvo. Ah. should they not & n *>i' 'nds, tint were . another day P V» lin yonder spot, j; there!" And ... iurly speak E'en *1 s tied ; And let th. of his— For, O ! it is The A rchangel's shall break The slumbers ot , M...

Expanding tlic Cliest. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 26 October 1866

Expanding tlic Cliest. Those in wealthy circumstances, or who, pursue sedentary employments within ' doors, generally use their lungs but very j little, breathe but very little air into the chest ; owl thru, tf pu&i 1 tiuns, contract a wretchedly narrow, sccall j chest, and lay the foundation for the loss j of health and beauty. /Ml this can be! perfectly obviated by a little attention toj j (he manner of breathing. Recollect, the j ! lungs arc like a bladder in their struc- ' ture, and can be stretched open to double j their ordinary si;e, with perfect safety, | giving a r.oble chest, and a perfect immuj nity from consumption. '1 he agent, and only agent required, is the common air ' I we breathe, supposing, however, that no obstacle exists, external to the cheit, such as lacing, or tying it around with stajs, or tight dress, or have shoulderstraps upon it. On rising from the bed in the morning, place yourself in an erect posture, ytur head thrown back, and shoulders en...

Tlie Aile and its Tributaries I [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 26 October 1866

Tlie Aile and its Tributaries I Sir Samuel W\ Baker, the knighted Nile explorer, lately read a paper on the "Abyssinian Tributaries to the Nile." Sir J-amuel commenced by referei.ee to the general ami historic interest which had always attached to the Nile, and been paiticipated in by every c'ass of people ; there had been a wonder and a mystery about it which was now cleared up, Down to the Mediterranean from El Dumer, where it was joined by the Atbara, it flowed 1.200 miles through deserts without a single tributary.— ( Further fouth it was joined by the Blue Nile, at Kartutn. Further-south still the n stream, or White Nile, had been 1 up to the great lakes on the Equa i Victoria and Albert Nyanza, a? tho source.

Color os- tli«* llrain. "A few dyya since, Miss Jacobs purchased first class tickets for herself and mother, from Savanah to New York.— After tie tickets were bought, the agent, supposing her a white person, it was discovered by st mo of the passengers that there was colored blood in her veins.— Comp'aint was made, and they were both put oft the car in a very rough manner, and compelled to remain in that city. Vlrs. Jacobs and daughter were almost white, quit t, unassuming, and well edu catcd. She was sent by the Society of " Friends " to establish schools for colored people, and has been a frequent visitor at the houses of such people as N. P. VN il'is. She has hosts of friends and plenty of money to back her, and the action cf the steamship campany will be apt to cost them dearly before the matter is ended.—Ex. Hiving some personal acquaintance with Mrs. Jacobs, we can endorse her as being " quiet and unassuming." Fiom her conversation and manners the term " lady " would be by no ...

I Fuels about C'cltbruted Men. Some literary men make good men of business. According to Pope, tlic principal object of Shakspeare in cultivating literature, was to secure an lionest independence. He succeodcd so well in tho accomplishment of this purpose, tliat at a comparatively early age, ho had realized a sufficient competency to enab.'o him to retire to his r ative town of Strat-ford-upon Avon. Chaucer was in early life a soldier, and afterwnrds a commissioner of customs and inspector of woods and crown lands. Spene&amp;lt; r was secretajiy to the Lord Deputy of Ireland, and is said to have been shrewd and sagacious in the management of affairs, Milton was secretary to tho Council of State during the Commonwealth, and gavo abundant evidence of his energy end usoi fulness in that office.

TH£I COPPERHEAD PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 26 October 1866

TH£I COPPERHEAD PRESS. The Alta and Call seizo every opportu nity to revile and ridiculo the colored people. A few weeks ago the Call, when describing the procession in Philadelphia on the occasion of the great Loyal Southern Union Convention, in which Theodore Tilton and Frederick Douglass walked "arm in arm," like South Carolina and Massachusetts at the Copperjohnson Convention of the 14th of August, alluded to the riots in that city in 1834, caused, as the Call said, by colored and white men walking arm in arm in the streets of Philadelphia, said, " the world moves," and sneeringly added, "does it move forward or backward ? " On Wednesday, 17th inst., the Alia had a communication, which it endorses by placing it in its editorial columns, headed "Help for California," in which the writer recommends employing Chinese for mining and agricultural labor. We offer no objection to employing Chinese, or any other class of laborers ; but when the Alia and its correspondents make invidious...

DR. ISAAC ROWELLS LECTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 26 October 1866

DR. ISAAC ROWELLS LECTURE. This gentlemaq/ delivered a lecture on Thursday evening, 18th inst., in Maguirc's Academy of Music, on the subject of Swill Milk, its unKealthinesa and its impurities. The Doctor commenced by alluding to the pleasing performances which arc generally giver/ from that stage, and said that instead of music and mirth, his lecture would bo dry and stale. We think, however, that the learned Doctor made it quite interesting. Swill piilk of itself is a stale subject, but with his wit and reportee, and eloquent manner qf treating it, in his hands it became fresh. lie showed plainly that fomented swill is not the natural food for cows ; it produces disease, and the milk must necessarily be impure and unhealthy. lie traced many of the- diseases of children to the use of swill milk—scrof ula, fevers, and other diseases incidental to young childrcp. Milk is the natural food of infants, and it should be given pure and healty. The learned Doctor said that grass and r ?sh...

Concert [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 26 October 1866

Concert The most successful musical entertainment we ever witnessed in this city, was given on Monday evening, 22d inst., in Powell Street A. M. B. Church, for the benefit of Alexander C. Taylor, organist. The principal solo parts were sung by Miss Sarah E. Miles, soprano, Miss Sarah Lester, contralto ; Messrs. L. 11. Brooks and Wm. H. Blake, tenors : Messrs. E. ' Pique and J. Moore, bassos. Miss Miles' voice is a fine, clear mezzo soprano, and she uses it to good effect. She sung "Consider the Lilies," in a superior manner, and also a duet with Mr. Wm. 11. Blake, entitled " I will magnify Thy name." Miss Lester lias a rich contralto voice, of flutelike riielody. Eve's lamcutation, "Must I leave the Paradise," was beautifully rendered. Both these young ladies possess musical qualites of a high order, but they lack confidence in their own capability, which nothing but practice will give them. "Never Despair," a ballad, was well sung by Mr. Brooks, and Messrs. Moore and Pique gave gre...

COMMUNICATIONS. The San Jose Ins titrate. Mr. Editor :—The hurried views presented through Thk Elevator of the 19th instdrew forth from your well matured mind an elaborate article, embracing the whole subject ; and while I agree with the tenor of the remarks concerning the utility of the matter, 1 am fearful that the magnitude of your scheme, to raise a joint stock company of $10,000, would retard the success of the object I have iu view. 1 desire to present the importance of being in possession of the property occupied by the San Jose Institute, in as practicable as shape as possible. This object might be accomplished through the simple and economical manner of asking every colored individual in the State to contribute one dollar. Our people are represented to be worth millions of dollars on this coast; yet, unlike almost every other class, with the exception of their churches they have no public edifices indicating their progressive spirit. San Jose has justly been called the Athe...

letter from Idaho City. Idaho City, Oct. —, 18G6. WHO ARK AMERICAN CITIZENS? Mr. Editor:—The title American citieen is tlic necessary qualification to scaure suffrage ; this follows the title, and all who are acknowledged as such should enjoy that right. The Civil Rights Bill claims us as American citizens, and leaves our right to the ballot to the States to extend or withhold. I ask the question, can any State form any law or statute to oppress one white citizen more than another? Can they destroy the title or abridge the rights for any cause, crime excepted? No, sir, the Federal Constitn tion clearly sets forth the lights of all American citizens, and protects their claim, home or abroad. If we are American citizens wo arc exceptions to the more favored classes. If Congress has the power to declare us citizens, it should have secured to us the aame rights and immunities that others enjoy. Can a man be a federal citizen, and not a local citizen of the State claimed as bis abiding p...
