Impartial Suffrage. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 29 November 1867

Impartial Suffrage. The Territorial Enterprise thus quotes from a citizen of Montana on the subject of impartial suffrage: Jack Simmons, a member of the Territorial Legislature of Nevada in 1863, and well and favorably known to many of our citizens, has been a resident of Montana Territory for the past two or three years. While here he was rather conservative, politically, but ho has become a thorough Radical during his sojourn among the rebel bushwhackers of the Upper Missouri. In a letter to a friend in this city, dated October 5, ho says in relation to the operations of " impartial suffrage" in Montana: "We tried it in our late election in this Territory under the recent amendment to the Organic Act. Between threo and four hundred negroes voted the straight Republican ticket, and all Union men regret that we didn't have enough black vote? to neutralize the still more ignorant electoral element in the Democratic party, and secure a Union victory over the rebel sympathizing Democra...

PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 29 November 1867

PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES. We suppose it is a settled fact that General Grant will be the nominee of the Republican party for President at the cn-; suing election, and however much our pre-1 dilections have been in favor of others, we will acquiese in the almost unanimous decision of the Republicans throughout the ! country. While we doubt not the sincere devojtion of General Grant to the principles of ' the Republican party, we do not admire ( the practice of taking up a man whose | only recommendation on the score of capability, is military renown. 'I rue, duri ing his brief occupancy of the office of I Secretary of War, Gen. Grant has shown administrative ability of rare excellence, of which the country would have been ignorant had not his obstinacy Andrew , Johnson have placed him in that position, i It is a difficult thing for men to refuse 1 honors when they are thrust upon them. Some two years since, when his name was , (irst mentioned in connection with the I Presidency, he is...

For The Elevator. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 29 November 1867

For The Elevator. In the Mountains, Nov. 25, '67. Mr. Editor :—J have seen pf late several j communications in The Elevator, headed "Masonic Propositions," which I think demand some attention. The ability with which the writer treats the subject plainly shows that he has not spared any pains in his research of the history aud working of the Order in this country. He deserves great credit for the efforts he is making to bring about a reunion of the Order ; but ! I fear it cannot be done through newspai per communications. W. 11. Y. is much grieved because we I cannot affiliate with the white Masons of 'j America. They call us clandestine. Will j W-. 11. Y. tell us where the white Lodges I of this country got their authority to work i as Masons ?

For the Elevator. Important to Colored Men Mr..

This position agrees with the sentiments and condition of some, hut to others, constituting a very large class, the idea of negro < equality is repugnant. They are incapa : hie and unwilling to regard these people < in any other light but that of a subject I race—cither as menials in the nominal free States, or as slaves in the States unreconstructed.

For The Elevator. Preparing for Company. Mr. Editor :—You may not have sympathy with me in my domestic affairs, because you are one of creation's lords, and are not expected to know anything of pickling, preserving or preparing for visitors- 1 had just put away the last jar of pickles and preserves, when Mr. Trask came in with a letter addressed to me. I opened it and read : " You may expcct mo as soon as it rains to lay the dust." I was to have company, sure enough. 1 1 was pleased with the idea. The lady who was coming to see us I had never seen. She was a dear friend of husband's (I ani not the least jealous) and a correspondent of mine, and 1 felt towards her as if I had known her a life time. Mr. Trask said : "I am glad she is coming, for 1 like to return hospitality. Many a good meal have I eaten in her house." Ilis words opened my eyes to see clearly that I must prepare something good to eat. I commenced studying what would be nice. I came to the conclusion that mince pies wo...

Letter from Sacramento. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 29 November 1867

Letter from Sacramento. Sacramento, Jfov. 25th. Stem winter has again arrived, bringing with him his usual blessings of health and comfort, to which may bo added peace, plenty and prosperity. We have had abundance of rain, which has raised our river several feet above high water mark, and gives prospect of a bounteous harvest. Our good Governor, F. F. Low, has issued his last Thanksgiving Proclamation, and will soon retire to private life. I would mention two other exceptions to the blessings bestowed upon ns, which after all may prove blessings in disguise, namely, a Democratic Governor, and a Democratic Legislature. We must., however, hope for the best. The Sunday School of the A. M. E. Church have announced their annual exhibition for Thanksgiving night. These are generally very creditable displays of proficiency, and I doubt not this will be. The corner stone of the new A. M. E Church was laid on the 20th instant. The ceremonies were conducted by Elder Ward, assisted by Hev. Mr....

Letter No. 3 from Japan. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 29 November 1867

Letter No. 3 from Japan. Kanaoawa, Yokohama, ) Japan, Oct. 24, 1867. ) Mr. Enuoß :—According to promise I endeavor to steal time enough from my labors to send you a letter per "Great Republic." To write to you affords me one of the greatest pleasures of which I know, and for two reason.?: Ist. because it is but a simple turn of gratitude for your many past kindnesses to me ; 2d, because anything that may tend to strengthen tfie columns of your very valuable paper helps to elevate the people for whom your labors of love and philanthropy are so bountifully given. Since my last letter, per " Colorado," nothing has happened here of any very great importance. The arrival of the P. M. S. S. Co.'s "Great Republic," so impatiently and long expected, was undoubtedly an event of great value, entirely strengthening the new-born hopes of every one that the Great American Ocean Express is and will be a thing of the c<* tinued future. In fact, to say tho leftst, were it not for the tim...

On the Death of Joseph Rodman Drake, of New York, September, 1820. BY FITZ-GREENE HALLECK. " Thf Rood die firgi, And they, whose hearts are dry as summer dust, Burn to the socket."— Wortimcorth. Green be the turf above thee, Friend of my better days ! None knew thee but to love thee, Nor named thee but to praise. Tears fell, when thou wert dying, From eyes unused to weep, And long where thou art lying, Will tears the cold turf steep. When hearts, whose truth was proven, Like thine, are laid in earth, There should a wreath be woven To tell the world their worth; And I, who woke each morrow To clasp thy hand in mine, Who shared thy joy and sorrow, Whose weal and wo were thine: It should be mine to braid it Around thy faded brow, But I've in vain essayed it, And feel I cannot now. While memory bids me weep thee, Nor thoughts nor words are free, The grief is fixed too deeply That mourns a man like thee.
