THE LOST CAUSE [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 6 September 1867
THE LOST CAUSE " Freedom's battle once begun, Descends from bleeding tire to son, Though baffled oft is ever won! " The Democracy have triumphed, and the State of California, whose record for loyalty was supposed to be imperishable, las through the open and avowed treachery of some of the party, the secret machinations of pretended friends, and the indifference of others, been surrendered to the common enemy. The smoke of the battle has not yet cleared away ; we cannot at this time tell the full result, but enough is known to convince us that H. 11. ilaight is elected Governor, and perhaps the entire Democratic ticket—State, County and Muui j cipal. Of the causes which have led to a result so disastrous, we will not now enlarge, for they are many, and some are of such minor consequence as to be scarce worth enumerating. So many side issues entered into the canvass, all of them damaging to the Union party, aud each one added to the strength of the opposition. The distinctive and oppo...

Letterr from San Jose. San Jose, Sept. 2d, 1867. Mr. Editor:—Listening as I have to' the oratory of such men as our candidate | for Governor, Hon. Geo. C. Gorham, of lively Governor Wood, and other celebrities who have visited San Jose and addressed the people on the political issues j of the day, 1 am impelled to say something on the subject of the past, and to contrast it with the present condition of the people of the United States. Listening, I repeat, to the sentiments of these men, so different from those uttered but five years ago, the transition seems too great to be real.! 1 feel almost like rubbiug my eyes, and | believing that, like old Rip Van Wrinkle, j I have been sleeping, and have not lived ; through the various scenes that crowd, my memory.

Letter from New York. New York, August 10th. Mr. Editor :—The weather has been so intensely hot for some days past that my ink has nearly dried up, and therefore my communication will be a short one. The State Constitutional Convention has now been in session nearly three months, j and have occupied a greater part of their 1 time in debating the question of manhood j suffrage. Several weak-kneed Republi cans have been desirous that the question of the colored man's enfranchisement j should be submitted to the people sepa- j rate from the main Constitution, to be | voted on next November. But, thauks to the untiring zeal of such men as Horace Greeley, George Opdyke, Waldo Hutchins, President Wheeler, and other determined Radicals, the proposition was voted idown. Our colored citizens have scarcely done anythiug. Not one petition fv&gt;ni j colored men, exclusively, has been presented. There was a meeting held iu this, city on the 6th of June, representing the | entire county,...
TRUE FRIENDSHIP [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 6 September 1867
TRUE FRIENDSHIP For The Elevator. BY MISS SARAH JANE WARD, PORTLAND, OR. The pleasure of friendship Mas through ages been sung, It has reached every clime, And been told in each tongue. The worth of pure friendship Has often been told ; It is more precious than riches, More costly than gold. We have need of pure friendship, Its firmness and truth, As a solace to age And a guidance to youth. It will be sweet to look back Through the fast fleeting years, To the friends who have blessed All our sorrows and tears. It may be a bubble, It may be a name, But I trust that our friendship May still prove the same. Where'er in life thy path may lead Take Virtue for thy guide ; Let not the love of worldly gain Entice thee from her side. From Virtue's bright and pleasant ways Let not thy steps depart— Better than gold and brilliant gems, A pure and guileless heart.
Longstreet on the Situation [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 6 September 1867
Longstreet on the Situation James Longstreet, who was a prominent rebel general during the war, is now residing in New Orleans, and goes for reconstruction through the party now in power. He has written a letter on the subject, in which he says : " I shall be happy to work in any harness that promises relief to our distressed people and harmony to the nation. It matters not whether I bear the mantle of Mr. Davis or the mantle of Mr. Sumner, so that 1 may help to bring glory of "peace and good will toward men.' " I shall set out by assuming a proposition, that I hold to be self-evident, viz : The highest of human laws is the law that is established by appeal to arms. "The great principles that divided political parties before the war were thoroughly discussed by our wisest statesmen. When argument was exhausted, resort was made to compromise. When compromise was unavailing, discussion was renewed, and expedients were sought but none could be found to suit the emergency. Appeal was fi...

obitcAßl . Died in New Haven, Conn., June 4th, Jacob R. Gibbs, aged 62 years. This simple notice, which I clipped from Tiik Elevator some days since, will send a thrill of pain through many a heart. Jacob R Gibbs was among the few men I have met who gave himself fully to mankind. He was born a slave in Baltimore, Md., and brought np in a paint factory. Soon after becoming of age he purchased himself, and after a time opened a shop of his own, an 1 followed house painting j as a business. A great worker, and a good one, and had all he could do, and was compelled to employ many hands. He was often called j into the country to paint the mansions of rich I planters, and it became a pet branch of his business, for it enlarged the circle of his acquaintance. There wa» nothing that pie ised him better than to find out all the sprightly young men and maidens, except one thing, and that was to point them to the North Star, and start them on their travels toward it. About as surely as night f...

MEW LIFE FROM THE DEAD. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 13 September 1867
MEW LIFE FROM THE DEAD. CONCLUDED. j Angelique might well have been fiancee or even married, and such a discovery | would probably effect Leon's cure. At least it was well worth trying the experiment, atd Madelon, with her usual energy, determined on going herself up to the mountains to Pierre Floriac's home, tho' j it was a good day's journey, in order to glean any particulars she could of his daughter's history. She ascertained from the monks, who had of course been in communication with him, that Fioriac was the peasant prepretor of a vineyard far up on the hills, and an honest, respectable man, though poor. She determined to set out at sunrise the very next day. The wise little mother said | not a word to her son as to the purpose of her journey, and he, asking no quesl tions in his abstraction, supposed she was going, as she often did, to visit a sister wholiv"' 1 near Aix; but she duly com municated her hopes and hei plans to Lc-r husband.

Tuking the Nineteenth Century Down a Peg. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 13 September 1867
Tuking the Nineteenth Century Down a Peg. lhe Rev, Hugh Stowell Brown, of Liverpool, gave a lecture in Dumfries recently on "The Good Old Times." We extri.?* the following passage : "Men did as wonderful intellectual feats 2,000 and a,OOO years ago as are done in the prerent tin.,?. If it be true that man was only an impro/od gorilla, we don't find that he allowed a greater resemblance to it then than now; for hie own part he believed there were more monkeys now than then, and possibly the gorilla might not so much represent the race from which we sprang as the destiny to which are hastening. Abraham he believed to bo as thoroughbred a gentleman as any in the nineteenth century; Jacob as good a man of business as they would find on the Liverpoll Exchange; while Joseph was a statesman, and Moses a Legislator worth a great deal more in their time than all the Lords, Commons and Town Councils put together.
