CO-OPERATION [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 4 October 1867

CO-OPERATION In our social system we need reforms. We require mutual aid and mutual cooperation in moral as well as practical measures. We should not only extend our sympathy and good wishes to every praiseworthy undertaking, but we should give material aid ; we should give real actual, as well as moral support. There is no surer method to bind us in unison with each other, than to make each one in some way dependent on others. No matter how small the object may be, it adds to our numerical strength. We thereby assist each other, and increase the general prosperity as well as the individual welfare. Co-operative institutions, wherever rightly conducted, are successful in their business, and not only sources of profit to all connected therewith, but exercise a beneficial effect ou their surroundings. Groceries, provisions, furnishing stores and manufacturing establishments conducted on this principle are much in vogue in the Eastern States and among the laboring classes in England, a...

—• ■ Theatrical. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 4 October 1867

—• ■ Theatrical. Maouire's Opera House.—Dau Bryant's engagement at this establishment is very successful ; he continues to draw crowded houses, and his admirers always leave highly gratified. Ilis personations of Irish character are original and natural, and devoid of that burlesque which is too often characteristic of those who attempt the portrayal of the humors and eccentricities of the Irish peasantry. Mr. Bryant will perform all next week. Matinee every Saturday. Metropolitan Theater.—The engagement of tho great Japanese troupe of Ha-yah-ta-kee is drawing to a close, it being announced that this is their last week, although the desire to see them is so great that we think it is probable they may be induced to remain another week, although we would not advise any one to depend upon our opinion. The performances of this troupe are truly wonderful, and should be seen to be believed. Crowded houses nightly express their approbation. A grand matinee on Saturday, at 2 o'clock p. M. A...

Another Pea body. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 4 October 1867

Another Pea body. Years ago, when telegraph lines begau to be laid, there was a farmer living near Ithaca, in the center of the State, named Ezra Cornell. Ho was poor, and had to do most of his own work, and found himself unable to live comfortably off his farm alone, so he gladly undertook to supply poles to the telegraph companies, and at the outset cut and dressed them largely with his own hands. The companies were poor, too, and could only give him a small part of his pay in cash ; for the rest he took shares, which he never expected to be worth much, if anything, as telegraphic prospects were not then considered bright. Years wore on and he supplied more and more poles, and got more and more stock, but was still poor, hard-worked aud despondent, when suddenly, as the lines became extended, busiuess began to grow, and he found himself, almost without warning, in receipt of about one hundred thousand dollars a year ?n dividends—in other words, a very wealthy man, and every day gr...

For The Elevator. Masonic Union. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 4 October 1867

For The Elevator. Masonic Union. Brother Bell : —I herewith propose to discuss the several propositions agreed upon by all Colored Lodges of the Masonic Fraternity on the Pacific coast, and I think I shall succeed in showing the necessity, the perfect justice, and the expediency of their approval. For about nineteen years our people have been divided upon this vital point, and there is no question which ettects their interest more than this, for the discussion induced by the bickerings and strife growing out of this subject has, to a great extent, poisoned our social and political intercourse. The first Masonic Convention held in Philadelphia, in 1847, was called for the purpose of reconciling, if possible, the conflicting elements. It was distinctly agreed at that time to unite upon the then American principle of one Qrand Lodge for each Ktate ; but the ambition of a few aspirants were not content with this, and at their Boston ratification meeting overstepped the mark so far as to...

Letter from Nevada County. Mod Hill, Sept. 30 th. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 4 October 1867

Letter from Nevada County. Mod Hill, Sept. 30 th. SATURDAY NIGHT. How welcome, not to the pleasure-seek-er, but to the toil-worn ones of earth. I sec before me wearied men going home from labor with an expression of countenance pleasing to behold—not the careworn face of other evenings, but a rested, contented look, showing that anticipation is nearly equal to realization, the rest before them on the morrow already half done its work. The wife busied about the house, laying out clean clothes for the husband and little ones, thinking all the time " rest tomorrow and husband home all day." The faces of the children brighten. They, too, anticipate, if not rest, wearing the nice clean clothes prepared by mother, and walking beside father to church. Such are some of the joys that greet the humble ones of earth. The rich cannot appreciate the blessings of Saturday evening, having no labor to weary, no toil to sweeten rest. The poor ones of this world taste joys which cannot be reached by ...

DIED. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 4 October 1867

DIED. In this city, on Thursday, 26th September, Charles Smith, aged 50 years. We cannot refrain from paying our tribute to the memory of an old friend. Charles Smith was born in the city of New York, and received the advantages which the Colored Public School of that city afforded forty yeati ago, which he improved by study and travel, and close observation of mun and things. Charles Smith was full of noble impulses; of enthusiastic temperament, he was highly patriotic, and generous to .a fault. He was of such a confinding nature that he believed every man honest, and would forgive the greatest injury on a show of repentance. He leaves a widow and two children in this city, and hosts of friends here and in New York, who will mourn his demise with unfeigned sorrow. In this city, Wednesday, October 2d, 1867, Madam Maria A. wife of John G. Pallier, aged 52 years and 1 month. Funeral this day at 11 o'clock a. m., from her late residence, No. 21 Taylor street.

Immigration from America.—The deputation from the Commercial Association of Kingston, on the subjcct of encouraging immigration from the United States, waited upon His Excellency the Governor at one o'clock, yesterday.' The deputation met a gracious reception from His Excellency, who was pleased to express a very favorable opinion of the propositions put forward by.Col, Graham.
