MEN WJB HAVE KNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 16 August 1867

MEN WJB HAVE KNOWN NCMBER ONE. We intend from time to time to give >rief biographical shetrhesof colored men )f eminence and ability with whom we lave had a personal acquaintance. It lias been our privilege during our long public career to enjoy the friendship of black men who, notwithstanding the lim ited opportunities for mental culture that generally falls to our lot, have shown evi iences of ability which would make them eminent in the higher walks of life. Such men we shall endeavor to rescue from the obscurity which usually surrounds un known merit. Hezekiah Grice. We formed the acquaintance of this gentleman at the first general convention of colored men, held in Philadelphia in June, 1832. He was a native of Baltimore ; born iu the early part of this century, of free parentage, lie had received more than the usual advantages of education which a slave State oftercd, and had profited by them, lie was a machinist by trade, aud had a natural aptitude for invention.

rHE UNION DEMONSTRATION AT SACRAMENTO We wore one of the 9,000 passengers jn board the steamer "Yosemitc," on Monday last, to attend the graud Union meeting at Sacramento on the evening of that day. The journey up was pleasant beyond description. Among that large number the utmost harmony prevailed.— Not the slightest disturbance of any kind occurred. Ample provisions were made by the Committee for the accommodatiot of the guests, and all appeared to enjoy themselves to the fullest extent. The passage up was enlivened by music from the band, and we were greeted along the route by the waving of tlags, firing of canon, guns and pistols, and the cheering of the inhabitants. One solitary hombrc 011 the banks of the river raised his apolo gy for a hat and shouted "hurrah for Hate? but his voice was soon drowned by the cheers from the multitude on board. At Sacramento, where we arrived about 7 1-2 o'clock, we were received by, it appeared, all the inhabitants of the city.— The procession ...

CHURCH EXHIBITIONS [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 16 August 1867

CHURCH EXHIBITIONS Wo have heretofore spoken in condemnation of theatrical exhibitions in churches, md we must again refer to the subject in reference to the entertainments given in Bethel Church, Powell street, on the evelings of Wednesday and Thursday, 7th *nd Bth instant. As dramatic exhibitions, the perform mccB were creditable, some would have massed in a theater ; it is the place alone :o whieh we object. The musical portions of these exhibiions were really well done. Mr. A. C. raylor as usual rendered valuable aid by lis correct and judicious performances on ;he piano. A little fellow named Master Sampson played " Marching through Georgia "in capital style. Mi9s Mary J. Sanderson recited Whittier's " Maud Muler " very well, but spoke rather low.— tVillis' beautiful descriptive poem, " Parmssius " was only passably given by G. iV. Bell, who is a good declaimer, and ve think could do better. Campbell's ' Lord Ullin's Daughter " was affectively endered by Miss Sarah A. Lee. The ...

An Opeu Letter to some of our Agents—After the manner of ' Asterion." To Messrs.

I have not time to write you again individually, so I will address this open letter to all delinquent Agents. I have sent The Elevator weekly to jour respective addresses, from three to twenty copies, according to your original irder, and from neither of those referred to have I received auv remittance for more than a year. Some of our agents have been receiving the paper for nearly two pears, and have not sent a dime ; others ire over a year in arrears. I dislike dunling, and this will be the last time I will iver allude to the subject. I suppose some think because I do not Jun weekly that The Elevator is a nourishing institution, and can wait.

Those reminders of boudage wt must get out of the way as soon as possi blc ; and while we would treat all with re spect, wo should not talk about color light and dark, black and white.

ENOW THY DESTINY. Madame E. F. Thornton, the great English Astrologist, Clairvoyant and l'sychonietrician, who has astonished the scientific classes of the Old World, has now loc .ted herself at Hudson, N. Y. Madame Thornton possesses such wonderful powers of second sight, as to enable her to impart knowledge of the greatest importance to tho single or married of either sex. While in a state of trance, she delineates the very features of the person you are to marry, and by the aid of an instrument of intense power, known as t v c Psychomotrope, guarantees to produce a life-like p c ure of the future husband or wife of tho applicant, together with the date of marriage, position in life, leading traits of character, etc. This is no humbug, as thousands of testimonials can assert.
