PBTALUMA. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 1 November 1867

PBTALUMA. We visited this pleasant little city last Saturday. It is situated in Sonoma county, at the head of a small river of that name. It is surrounded by a very fertile region, famed for its agricultural productions. Grapes are among its principal articles of produce, and are largely cultivated. It also supplies our market with large quantities of fruits and vegetables. Through the kindness of our friend, Mr. Frank V. Miller, arrangements had been made for a lecture on Monday evening, which we intended delivering. Rev. Peter Kellingworth, pastor of A. M. E. Church, very generously granted the use of his church for the occasion, and the editors of the Journal and Argus gave a highly complimentary notice of our intended lecture ; but some propose, and others oppose.— Father Kellingworth had not consulted the trustees of his church, and when that august body heard of our contemplated lecture, they became indignant and declared it should not be. Their gospel shop was too sacred for ...

THE CONCERT TUESDAY EVENING. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 1 November 1867

THE CONCERT TUESDAY EVENING. A large and fashionable audience attended Prof. Blake's grand opcratic concert on Tuesday evening in Zion church, Stockton street. This was by far the best musical entertainment ever given by colored musicians in this city ; the most artistic, the best arranged, and the most perfect in all its parts. Nearly all our professional and amateur singers volunteered on the occasion, as a complimentary testimonial to Mr. Blake, and never was compliment more worthily given. The performances would bear close criticism, as all was well done, and every singer perfect in their parts. We cannot enumerate all, as our limited space will not allow us, but we will notice the principal pieces, giving all credit for the excellence displayed. The solo singers were Misses Miles and Phillips, soprano voices ; Miss Lester, contralto ; Messrs. Brown, Pique and McFee, bassos ; Mr. L. H. Brooks and the beneficiary, tenors. The gems of the evening were " Sweet Spirit hear my Prayer...

A Fugitive Slave Case in Vermont Forty Years Ago. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 1 November 1867

A Fugitive Slave Case in Vermont Forty Years Ago. Horace Greeley, in his " Recollections of a Busy Life," published in the New York Ledger, says : " Among the incidents of my sojourn in Poultney that made most impression on my mind, is a fugitive slave chase. New York had professed to abolish slavery years before, but had ordained that certain born slaves should remain such till twenty-eight years old ; and the year of jubilee for certain of these had not come A young negro, who must have been uninstructed in the sacredness of constitutional guarantees, the right of property, &amp;amp;c., &amp;amp;c., &amp;amp;c., feloniously abstracted himself from his master in a neighboring New York town, and conveyed the chattel personal to our village, where he was at work when said master, with due process and following, came over to reclaim and recover the goods. I never saw so large a muster of men and boys so suddenly on our village-green as his advent incited ; and the result w...

For The Elevator. The Petition to the Legislature. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 1 November 1867

For The Elevator. The Petition to the Legislature. Mr. Editor :—Having read in your paper the petition to the Legislaturo, a few thoughts suggested themselves, and as I have on many occasions tested your liberality I concluded again to avail myself of your valuable columns. The abstract right of petition has long since been settled. You and I well remember the storm raised in the House of Representatives when Hon. John Quincy Adams pressed that question in the rescing of the odious 21st Rule. This, then, being conceded, we have only to enquire as to the fitness of time to present and urge our claims. Some objectors seem to think that because the Democracy have again resumed the reins of government of this State, therefore it is utterly useless to ask anything of them in our behalf Now, on the contrary, we think this the very time to ask and urge the justice of our claims. PETITION. To the Honorable, the Senate and Assembly of the Slate of California, in Legislature assembled — This ...

Letter from Tuolumne County. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 1 November 1867

Letter from Tuolumne County. Sonora, Oct. 15. 186 T. Mr. Editor :—The last number of your paper contained a petition to be circulated for signatures, to be presented to the next Legislature, for an amendment to the State Constitution so as to confer the right of suffrage on American citizens of African descent. That class of citizens in this county, so far as I can learn, look upon the movement as impolitic and un» wise. While they would gladly avail themselves of that privilege, they do not feel like acting the part of the whipped spaniel, by turning around and licking the hand of that party which has forged their chains in times past, and which has had in the recent contest, as one of its leading ideas, opposition to the very privileges which you seek in the petition to have them endorse. Let us be men, and show —dear as the right of suffrage is to every man born under a free government—that we would sooner wait and combat the popular prejudice against our race, until more liberal...

Letter from Sacramento. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 1 November 1867

Letter from Sacramento. Sacramento, October 27, 1867. Our city continues to improve in architectural beauties; it has been elevated fifteen feet above low water mark, as a preventive against inundation; a number of public buildings and private residences have been raised to the " grade," and the City of the Plains promises to vie with the Bay City in time. [And a long time, too.—Ed Elevator.] Churches.—The Baptist church has been made somewhat larger. This congregation deserve credit for their efforts to please those who enjoy commodious places of worship, which is an auxilliary both to speaker and audience. A. M. E. Church.—This organization has commenced building a new church on the lot where the old one stood. It will be 65 feet deep by 35 feet wide ; 15 feet ceiling, with a basement. May the Great Architect of Truth aid them in their work. The Public School is crawling along gradually. The fervent interest which has heretofore been exhibited by parents is losing its lustre.

For Tbe Elevator. THE LONELY GRAVE. BY SEMPER FIDEI.IS. Why did they lay him to rest Where human feet seldom tread ? Wild flowers bloom over his breast, Too gaudy, alas, for the dead. Tall pines sighing over the dust Of one once loved and caressed. The wild beasts are treading above The heart a mother has pressed. Birds singing and flying around, With notes all attuned for joy. Little they heed him sleeping here, Some mother's own darling boy. Oh! 'tis a wierd lonely spot, Away from all human strife ; The sleeper he heedeth not, Nor careth for things of life. Mud Hill, October, 1867. Hebrew Thrift.—"Burleigh," of the Boston Journvl, says the Hebrews have taken possession of Saratoga, wbere this season nine out of ten seem to be Jews and Jewesses. The Jews are becoming very numerous in this country and accumulating much wealth. This they can do because they are among the most healthy, moral, industrious and economical of our people. They are clannish and peculiar in their habits, amu...

Arrangement or Flowers. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 1 November 1867

Arrangement or Flowers. Of all the various mistakes which are made by persons in arranging flowers, the 1 commonest is that of putting too many into a vase ; and next to that is the mis -! take of putting too great a variety of col Ors into one boquct, Every flower in a group should be clearly distinguishable and determinable, without pulling the; nosegay to pieces; the calyx of a clove j pink should never be hid by being p'unged into the head of white phlox, however well the two colors may look together.— j Sweet peas never look so well in the hands as they do on the boughs over which they climb, because they cannot be j carried without crowding them ; but put : them lightly into a vase with an equal number of mignonette, or rather, orna- j mcnt a vase half full of mignonetto with! a few blooms of sweet peas, and you got a charming effect, because you follow the natural arrangemont by avoiding crowding of the blooms, and putting them with the green foilage which they want to set th...
