RIGHT OF PETITION. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 18 October 1867

RIGHT OF PETITION. Among the inalienable rights with I which man is endowed by his creator is i the right of prayer, or petition. Although not enumerated by Jefferson among the inalienable rights which adhere to man from his creator, it is co-equal with the others, namely, "life, liberty and the purjHuit of happiness," and should be asstrict- ; ly encouraged and cultivated as the others. There is nothing humiliating or degrading in asking for our rights, even when we know they will be refused ; we thereby show that we know our privileges, and dare maintain them. Hon. John Quincy Adams persistently enforced this right in the House of Representatives. Notwithstanding the odious gag law, known as Rule 21, introduced by lion. Charles Atherton, of New Ilanishire, the "Old Man Eloquent" continued to present petitions for the abolition of the slave trade in the District of Columbia. He was censured and virtually expelled. He weut to his constituents, and was re-elected by a triumphant majo...

From our Sacramento Correspondent [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 18 October 1867

From our Sacramento Correspondent Itev. Mr. Douglass delivered one of his! paper or temperance lectures on Sunday evening in the A. M. E. Church of this city, after which he proceeded to organize a Temperance League. As I was not prepared to be initiated at that time, I withdrew. This association is founded on principles of true charity. It is essentially a social union, and all are eligible, without distinction or exception. This new reform movement promises to destroy church prejudice and reunite a class which have been too long divided. "So mote it be." Intemperance, the mother of erime, has always proven injurious to the human I family, and should be avoided. Temper- | ance is not only au auxiliary to society, . but contributes largely to health, happiness and social comfort. I admit Ido not invariably follow her every demand ; I sometimes allow myself to deviate from her path, but I never Buffer myself to lose what is called "our equilibrium," nor my 'own self-respect. In order...

From Ziou's Standard. Rochester, Sept. 1, 1861. Mr. Editor:—Please find within two dollars, and apply the same to my credit for the Standard and Review. You have more than made good your promise for the Standard. ]am glad of its progressive improvement, and hope it will continue in its onward and upward course. You can make the Standard a power of immense good to our struggling people. Truly yours, Fred'k Douglass. William Howard Day. We publish the above for the purpose of noticing an act of neglect—we will not say discourtesy—on the part of Mr. Douglass, which we hope he will explain. We occasionally send complimentary copies of The Elevator to our representative men, including Mr. D. A few weeks ago we received a notice from the postmastor of Rochester, N. Y., informing us that The Elevator, directed to Mr. Douglass, remained in the office. Reason, " Refused."

The Livingstone Expedition. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 18 October 1867

The Livingstone Expedition. At the fortnightly meeting of the Royal Geographical Society on Monday, May 13, Sir Roger Murchison, Hart., K. C. 8., presided. In a few opening remarks he said it would be a search in vain for the explorers to go into the interior of Africa in quest of Dr. Livingstone, and it was only their intention to go to the spot where he is reported to have been killed, and to put to rest the doubt whether he is dead or not. Her Majesty's Government haf granted a sum of money in aid of the | pedition, and Lord Stanley and the Admiralty have behaved most liberally in ! furthering the designs of the Society.— Mr. E. T. Young, a clear headed and well acclimated man, who knows the • river Zambesi and the people in the country which he has to traverse, will take charge of the expedition, which consists of three others besides himself. They will take the little iron and steel boat now building at Chatham, have it carried across the country until they reach a point above ...

KNOW THY DESTINY. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 18 October 1867

KNOW THY DESTINY. Madame E. F. Thornton, the great English Astrologist, Clairvoyant and Psychometrician, who has astonished the scientific classes of the Old World, has now loc itcd herself at Hudson, N. Y. M adamc Thornton possesses such wonderful powers of second sight, as to enable her to impart knowledge of the greatest importance to the 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 Psychomotrope, guarantees to produce a life-like p'cture of the future husband or wife of the 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. She will send when desired a certified certificate, or written guarantee, that the picture is what it purports to be. By enclosing a small lock of hoir, and stating place of birth, age, disposition and complexion, a...

The ne- ( groes are denouncing Hunnicut as the author of all their misfortunes, by his ex- t treme ultra doctrines. This comes from the Conservative wing of the negres. J The Tribune's Washington special i Bays it believes there will be no Cabinet changes immediately.
