NAPA AND BENICIA. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 15 November 1867
NAPA AND BENICIA. Wc returned this week from one of the most pleasant jaunts we ever enjoyed.— i Saturday p. m. we left the city for Napa, j via Benicia, in compliance with an invitation from Mr. Joseph S. Ilatton, of the former place, to visit their " Happy Val lev," and partake of their hospalities for a brief season. The good steamer " Chrysopolis," on which we took passage, landed us at Beni- | cia, where we found our agent, J. C, jCasen, ready to receive us with a free heart and welcome hand. We were introduced to Messrs. Farrell, Quinn, and 'several other gentlemen, with whom we held pleasant converse. We also visited Rev. A. W. Feck, of the M. E. Church, aud passed a happy hour inspecting his library, examining his cabinet of choice specimens of mineral and antique curiosities from Lake Superior, California, the i Islands of the Pacific Ocean, and the olden world; all real specimens, collectcd by himself and his accomplished wife.

OBITUARY AND BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH OF THE LATE JAMES COLLIER COWES [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 15 November 1867
OBITUARY AND BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH OF THE LATE JAMES COLLIER COWES We have again a painful duty to perI form—to chronicle the demise of an old, honored and much-loved friend. James | Collier Cowes was born at Cowes, one of j the islands in the English Channel. In his I infancy his pareats removed to New York, \ where ho resided (except a few years Iwhcn he lived at New Brunswick, N. J.,) until he came to California, in 1857. Mr. Cowes was the oldest steamboat and steamship steward in California, perhaps anywhere. He commenced steam- , boating in the "Olive Branch," on the I North River, from New York to Albany, as early as 1817. This boat was owned i by Thomas Gibbons, Esq., and run in op- ' position to the "Fire Fly," owned by Robt. j Fulton and John R. Livingston. He was afterwards steward of the "Bellona," running to New Brunswick, of which boat the celebrated " steamboat king," Cornelius Vanderbilt, was mate, or second-captain, as he was then called. Prior to that he was drummer i...
Our New York Letter—No. 8. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 15 November 1867
Our New York Letter—No. 8. New York, Oct. 21, 18GT. JEROME PARK. Mr Editor The fail meeting of the American Jockey Club opened at this fashionable and popular Park last Tuesday in splendid style. The attendance j was very large and the racing unusually ; fine, and was duly appreciated by the mul- | titude. The first race of the day was a hurdle race, in which there were six enI tries. This was the race that the people 4 j were anxious to witness, as it was to introduce some new riders who had just arrived here from England. The horses were led out by the grooms, and all were in fine condition. The Jockeys mounted to their positions, and took their allotted places in line. At the tap of the drum they were oil' at lightning speed, followed by enthusiastic cheers from the assembled multitude. The first, second and third hurdles were leaped successfully, but when Negrita leaped the fourth her rider, Cassidy, failed to rein her up properly, and the result was that she stumbled, throwing ...

"Marching On." [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 15 November 1867
"Marching On." It will be seen by the telegraphic dispatches published in to-day's paper, that complete returns from Virginia show that thirty-five Conservatives have been elected delegates to the Convention which meets on the 3d of December at Richmond to draft a Constitution for that State, and that the Radicals have elected seventy, members, of which number twenty-five are negroes. This will give the Radicals full control of the Convention, and enable them to frame a Constitution that will be acceptable to Congress aud the progressive meu of the country. When we remember the state of things that existed in Virginia not more than •eight years ago, it seems strange that colored men should how be helping to give shape to its future destinies. Men who were not then allowed to leave the plantations of their masters after dark, are now appointed to aid in framing the organic law of their State. It is only about eight years since John Brown was executed there for the crime of endeavorin...

THE PEAKL NECKLACE. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 22 November 1867
THE PEAKL NECKLACE. CONTINUED. IV. Ben-Ha-Zelah was old, but his was a vigorous old age—and the young daughter and aged father, as they walked under the grand old trees of the garden, made a beautiful picture. The long white head, piercing eyes, eagle nose, and broad brow of the old man, formed a striking con- ; trast to his humble dress, and when no longer under restraint, it revealed a mys : terious and profound satisfaction in his own personality and intelligence. There was so much pride that there was no place for vainity in his soul. What cared he for the admiration or I contempt of others, the vain clamors of | the multitude, whom he considered infi nitely hi 9 inferiors? When he said to himself, " I am Ben-Ha-Zelah," the rest of the world no longer existed for him. His pride was like that of Lucifer : it was not relative, but absolute; he contemplated himself with a terrible satisfaction. Thence his disdain for all the miserable trifles which gratify the self love of inferior...
The Slave Trade on the two Niles. A » i„. i i_ [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 22 November 1867
The Slave Trade on the two Niles. A » i„. i i_ | A correspondent from Alexandria sends the following to the Pall Mall Gaxette : The Viceroy, by his answer to the antislavery deputation in Paris, has broken into a nice hornet's nest. It appears that Lord Stanley, consequent on the assertion that Europeans were the real slave dealers in the Soudan, and that there was but little slavery in Egypt, and also on account of the Viceroy's allusion to the advantages which had resulted to his Government in its endeavor to suppress slave traffic on the White Nile by tlie recall of the British Consul, Petherick, from Khartum, directed the Cousul "Jeneral here to make inquiries and to re port on the subject. The result has been, I understand, to show that not only is slave trading pursued on the White and Blue Niles for and on account of the Viceroy and his Government, but an active trade is going on at Cairo, where the number of slaves for sale, white and black, has been estimated at between 2,0...
The Finger of (iod. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 22 November 1867
The Finger of (iod. Headfey, remarking on the Bull Run defeat in his "History of the Rebellion," I says : "To the believer in an overruling j Providence, there will appear reasons for this defeat that are not laid down in I military books." The man who see® with an eye of faith, has a wider sweep i for his mental vision, and matter much I greater to contemplate, than is involved I in any one circumstance preceding, pending or since the war. Eternity is God's, and He works more slowly and with greater complications of purpose than are apparent to man. We base our argument on the general averment that wrong mvst right itself. The proof may not be furnished in the j life of an individual or of a generation, ; but it is certain to occur during the hisj tory of a nation, it will, in fact, constitute that history, with a moral to be imitated, or an example to be avoided. If any part of the flesh receives a splinter, which is matter foreign to its quality and design, a sore is the conseque...
