The Ordination to the Gospel Ministry of a Long-tried Friend of Humanity. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 4 August 1865

The Ordination to the Gospel Ministry of a Long-tried Friend of Humanity. On Friday, June Oth, 1865, a service of unusual interest took place at " Old St. Philip's," it being on the occasion of the ordination of our esteemed friend and Christian philanthropist, John Peterson, admitting him thereby to the holy order iof Deacon. We arrived at the sacred ! edifice a few minutes before 11 a. M.,and i found there gathered a very large congre- ; gation, comprising many of our most prominent and influential families. The ; sacred, solemn, and sublime service ap- ; pointed thereto of the Church, was in its 1 1 very particular tenure truly grand. At 11 o'clock deep-toned peals from S the organ announced the approach of the procession, which entered the Church | from the vestry below, passing up the i north aisle of the Church to the chancel, ' in the center walking the candidate elect, his reverence the Right Kev.

The Poverty of Statesmen. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 4 August 1865

The Poverty of Statesmen. Statesmen, wlio are worthy of the appelation given them, generally vail to secure fortunes. They devote themselves to pursuits which, if honestly adhered to, seldom yield rich rewards. Jefferson died comparatively poor.— Indeed, if Congress had not pure .ased his library, and given for it five imoa its value, he would with difficulty 1 ave kept the wolf from his door. Madison saved money and wai comparatively rich. To add to his fortune, however, or rather to that of h& wid- w, Congress purchased his manuscript papers, and paid thirty thousand dollars for them. James Monroe, the fifth President of the United States, died in New 3fork, so poor that his remains found a resting place through the charity of one of his friends. '1 hey remain in a cem tery in Second street, but no monument marks the spot where they repose. John Qtiincy Adams left some hundred and fifty thousand dollars, the result of .industry, prudence and inheritance. He was a man o...

" Twelfth Night" at Wheatleigh'a Eureka Theater. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 4 August 1865

" Twelfth Night" at Wheatleigh'a Eureka Theater. This is one of those strange combinations of Shakspeare, in which incongruities, anachronisms,' natural situations, sentiments and feelings, are mixed up with unnatural positions. Facts and fancies, wit and folly, follow in rapid succession, and the whole is so interwoven with pure sentiments, clothed in beautiful language, and such a strong moral running through the whole, that we admire without comprehending it- The scene is laid in Italy, and English names and customs are introduced, makiug the whole subject almost incomprehensible. To the play, however. It was well put on the stage, and the acting far above mediocrity. The characters were all well sustained, each one b«ing well up in their part, and having a correct idea thereof. To Messrs. Wheatleigh, Leach and Myers, too much credit cannot be given. Fanny Morgan Phelps, Miss Clarkson and Mrs. Judah, are also deserving of great praise. The Sebastian of Fred. Gass was wo 11 render...

THE SENATORIAL CONTEST [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 4 August 1865

THE SENATORIAL CONTEST " Let it be written on every man's forehead what he thinks of the Republic." When the great Athenian orator was in the zenith of his fame, ere his faint heart was frighted by the victorious arms of the Macedonian legions, and before his weak mind had yielded to the alurements of the conqueror's gold, while exciting his countrymen to repel the invasion of the tyrant, in the ferver of his patriotic enthusiasm exclaimed " Let it be written on every man's forehead what lie thinks of the Republic." We have no political status in this country, and no political influence ; hence we know our opinions will have no weight in the community ; but as an American citizen we feel that we have an interest in our country's welfare, and our opinions, however feeble, should be given, as should the opinions of every individual, however humble. Two questions of great import to this State, and to the whole country, now excite the minds of the American people, viz : Negro Suffrage a...

THE CONVENTION. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 4 August 1865

THE CONVENTION. We publish this week the Call for the Convention, by the Executive Committee, and we take this opportunity to present our views on the importance and necessity of a State Convention at this time. We will premise by stating that we are not a very-strong Conventional man. We do not believe Conventions should be held on every trifling occasion ; they are expensive, and unless properly and judiciously conducted, ofttimes encumbersom. J Hut when subjects of deep and abiding interest come up—issues which require the advice and counsel of our best men, and which affect the welfare of our race, then conventions are requisite and should be held. We have now such subjects before us, and we will state briefly what they are: First-—> The Suffrage Questiou is the most important, as all will acknowledge. Much might be done, we admit, by individual efforts—circulating petitions, getting signatures, etc. —but much more by united action. Second—We require increased educati...

Wreck of the Brother Jonathan. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 4 August 1865

Wreck of the Brother Jonathan. The steamship Brother Jonathan, which : left here on Friday, 28th ult., for Portland and Victoria, was lost last Sunday. The following telegraphic dispatch was received here on Tuesday night: Jacksonville, Oregon, August Ist—lo, p. m.—A soldier arrived this evening from Camp Lincoln, bringing a dispatch for Col. Drum. He reports that the Brother Jonathan, with Gen. Wright, staff, and family aud between two hundred and three hundred passengers, were lost near Camp Lincoln, on the 30th ult., except fourteen men and one women, who were saved. No particulars yet. Camp Lincoln is about fifteen miles north of Crescent City, and the coast is very dangerous. A heavy fog was probably prevailing at the time. We were on board the steamer just prior to her sailing, and bade adieu to our friend Victor Smith. The ship had about 150 passengers, amoing whom were Mr. James Nesbit, of the Evening Bulletin, Mr. Geo. Church, wife and sister, of Victoria. Mr. Church had ju...

COMMUNICATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 4 August 1865

COMMUNICATIONS. [For the K!cvator.] A Pleasant Visit to San Jose. A moral maxim is that "the way of duty is the way of safety." Hut the way of duty does not always seem to be the way of pleasant enjoyment. However, with the case in hand, the way of duty in our visit to San Jose last week, to hold a quarterly meeting in our beloved and prosperous i Zion there, proved one of the pleasantest social enjoyments we have realized since we have been on the Pacific coast. As a whole, it was rendered so by a cluster of propitious incidents rarely met with. As we submerged from the confounding din of our commercial metropolis (San Francisco), and the fleeting cars bore us out upon the bosom of the beautiful valley of San .Tose, as it spreads out its rural arms, as a welcome embrace for thousands of happy yeomanry, while it kisses with fruitful lips our majestic bay, as our eyes swept out upon its fertile fields that were white with the golden fleece of teeming harvests, while meads sat clothed...
