The Service of Plate. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 25 October 1867
The Service of Plate. I have been in one situation forty years, and, like a squirrel in a cage, hare progressed by going ihe same round every day; yet I have bad my little ambitions, which, however, never interfered with the due digestion of my eight o'clock breakfast, one o'clock dinner, six o'clock tea, and nine o'clock supper ; indeed, my life ran on in a calm, unruffled stream, devoid of precipices and antagonistic rocks; in fact, ii could not be called a murmuring stream. I married at five and twenty, and my | dear parents said that the proper age had (arrived for me to settle. Knowing my ! timidity and unworldliness,they took upon j themselves the onus of the courtship. By | their foresight they secured me a prizein the mild daughter of remarkably mild | parents, who were well to do, and had but | that one treasure; thus the current of my true love was a smooth contradiction ; of the old adage. I These few lines give an exact idea of my whole life, to write more would bt' j po...
Concluded next week. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 25 October 1867
Concluded next week. A g-entleman called on Decamps, the celebrated French painter, in 1847, at his lodging oq the third story, and asked the porter if M. Decamps was at home ; and, being answered in the affirmative, the visitor was about to ascend the stairs, when the porter called after him and said: " Perhtps you will have no objection to take up his trousers which I have just mended V' "By all means," replied the stranger; " I shall be hippy to render you the little service." Arriving at the door, the Tisitor rang the bell, and Decamps, opening the door, to his utter amazement recognized the Duke of Or leans, who laughingly presented to him the trousers he had received from the porter. A watch company in Rhode Island haye invented a chain machine, which is one of the most ingenious and elaborate pieces of work ever devised. This machine takes the bar gold and transforms it without noise, to the most delicate and substantial fob and yest patterns,
l.ive within your Means. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 25 October 1867
l.ive within your Means. r Wo don't like stinginess. We don't i like economy, when it comes down to rags and starvation. We have no sympathy with the notion that a poor man should hitch himself to a post and stand still, while the rest of the world moves forward. It is no man's duty to deny himself every amusement, every luxury, every recreation, every comfort, that he may get rich. It is no man's duty to make an iceberg of himself, to shut his eyes and cars to the suffering of his fellows, and to deny him self the enjoyment that results from generous actions, merely that he may hoard wealth for his heirs to quarrel about.— But there is an economy which is every man's duty, and which is especially commendable in the man who struggles with poverty—an economy which is consistent with happiness, and which must be prac ticed if the poor man would secure independence. It is almost every man's privilege, and it becomcs his duty, to live within his means ; not to, but within them. Wealth d...
Liuks in the Chain. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 25 October 1867
Liuks in the Chain. The blast that drove the storm clouds across the heavens shook the oak, and the acorn cup, loosened from its fruit, fell on the pathway. r l he cloud burst; a rain-drop filled the acorn cup. A robin, wearied by the sulty heat of an autumn day, and troubled by the fury of the storm, hopped on the path when all was calm, and drank of the rain drop.— Refreshed and gladdened, he flew to his accustomed place in the ivy that overhung the poet's window, and there he trilled his sweetest, happiest song. The poet heard, and, rising from his reverie, wrote a chant of grateful rejoicing. The chant went forth into the world and entered the house of sorrow, and uttered its heart stirring accents by the couch of sickness. The sorrowful were comforted, the sick were cheered. Many voices praised the poet. He said: "The chaot was inspired by the robin's sorag." "I should have sunk into the earth had cot the acorn cup received me," said the rain-drop. "I had not been there to rece...

Lecture. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 25 October 1867
Lecture. Last Friday evening we attended the lecture delivered by Mr. G. Vellimrio in the hall of the Mechanics' Institute. The subject was one aptly chosen for the times —"The Political History of Mankind."- Mr. Vellimrio is an Italian, but has perfect command of the English language, and uses it with all the force and power of expression of which it is capable. ( A slight foreign intonation can be observ- ; ed, but just sufficient to make his delivery interesting. The lecturer gave a very probuble hypothesis of the rise and progress of civilization, from the earliest dawn of society, or when mankind was in a normal condition—the institution of worship—the origin of jurisprudence—the cause of wars—the establishment of governments,and the foundation of monarchies, lie traced each successive era aa distinctly as if portrayed on a map. This gentlemau is not a professional lecturer ; his voice needs volume, but his subject is so interesting, and clothed in such appropriate language, ab...
PUBLIC MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 25 October 1867
PUBLIC MEETING. A meeting was held on Thursday evening, 17th instant, in A. M. E. Church, Powell street, to receive the petition pre* pared by the Executive Committee for " presentation to the Legislature. S. Penenton was chsen Chairman, and P. A. Bell, Secretary. The Secretary read the petition, when, in consequence of so few being present, it was decided to hold another meeting at an early day. A committee was appointed to prepare resolutions and make the necessary arrangements, consisting of Messrs. W. 11. llall, M. Howard, S. Penenton, J. M. Flowers, and P. A. Bell. The meeting was addressed J. P. W. Wentworth, who at the close of his rerjarks read a very fine original poem, by a lady of our city, which was very appro priate to the occasion. Mr. Wentworth does not, under defeat of the party of which he is an influential member, desert, the cause of Freedom, but works with the | same zeal as when victory crowned theirj banners. Such men are always to be found in the vanguard of a...

POLITICS AND CHRISTIANITY. " His harshest word of proud rebuke, I Hi* bitterest taunt and scorning, ! Fell firelike on the Northern brow, That bent to him in fawning." —Whitfitr'i Randolph of Roanoke. A more glaring instance of caste in the Churcb, and of clerical fawning as exhib- ' ited in the case of Miss Lester, and given : in detail in the Evening Dispatch and in : the Time)', we never met with, nor has it | ever been our duty to chronicle a more | humiliating spectacle of political ChristiI anity. The facts of the case arc as follows : I Miss Lester, daughter of Mr. Peter Lester 'of Victoria, formerly a resident and well known in this city, arrived here some time 'since from Victoria. Miss Lester ia u highly educated young lady, and a member of the Episcopal Church. She brought letters of introduction from the Arch Deacon (Jilson, of Victoria, to Rev. Dr. Wyatt, Rector of Tsinity Church in this city. She was received in full communion in the church, and finding her very attent...
OUR POLITICAL VIEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 25 October 1867
OUR POLITICAL VIEWS. We have heretofore given our opinions ! on the political questions of the day, such 1 as Right of Suffrage, Importance, sity and Right of Petition, and kindred I subjects. While our views may not meet ! the approval of all, we have the satisfaction of knowing that they are received with favor by the majority of our people, s and by our friends generally. We have the indorsement of our position by such sound Union papers as the | San Francisco Times and the Sacramento ! Bee. Other papers of like liberal sentiments are promulgating views aud opinions similar to our own, and thus encouraged we shall continue to dwell on these topics. Some oppose them because re have i adopted such a course. For all such we ! have nothing but contempt. They are of | that class who " will not serve God because the devil bids them." Others think there is no use in petitioning a Democratic j | Legislature, saying " all know our prayer | will be rejected." That does not invali-j j date ...

SAN JOSF. I Circumstances prevented us from fulfillj ing our promise to visit Petaluma on SatJ urday last, so not to be wholly disap- ' pointed we wended our way by the pleasant 1 bay route on board the steamboat "Cora" ,to the beautiful city of Sau Jose, where we were received, as usual, with a hearty welcome from hosts of friends. | On Sunday wo attended Phamixonian Hall, where servicc iu the Episcopal form was conducted by the Rev. P. W. Casscy. In the evening we visited Ziou A. M. E. Church, and was abundantly edified by a sermon from a German minister, 1 whose name we did not learn. By request of our friends we delivered ; a lecture on Monday evening in the Phcenixonian Hall, which was generously placed at our disposal by the officers of Phoenixonian Institute. The subject J chosen by us for the occasion was the "Right of Suffrage." Notwithstanding the short notice given, the hall was nearly j filled by an audience who listened with j marked attention.
