Letter from Stockton. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 13 December 1867

Letter from Stockton. Mb. Editoß s—l feel and must confess myself altogether inadequate to the task of a correspondent of the public press. I deem such sources as among the many receptacles aud mediums of knowledge and intelligence as they issue from the great diversified reservoirs of nature—the human mind. I class them among the many reflective mirrors of instruction ; and feeling quite a desire rather to sit at the feet of a modern Gamaliel, or eagerly drink of the life giving fountain of some worthy Arcbemedes, I have often stepped back, and with modesty given the preference to others, not from cowardice, but rather from a conviction of their superior genius, more enlarged mental development and copious understanding. It is, J Mr. Editor, and I am persuaded that the! sentiment is endorsable, the duty of every j Bober and reflective mind to be content in| perusing these avenues of instruction, j among which stands most eligibly The', Elevator, and therefrom glean available: and n...

PUBLIC DOCUMENT 3 [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 13 December 1867

PUBLIC DOCUMENT 3 We had last week an inundation of Executive documents, messages and mani- | festoes, issuing from heads of Federal and State Governments, retiring, existing and prospective, a perfect plethora.. Claimj ing precedence in importance, from his position, is THE president's MESSAGE. This precious document was received in full by telegraph. It is the most disgracefid State paper ever issued from the Executive Department. It contains all the usual demagogueism which characterizes the productions of Andrew Johnson, and would answer very well for a third-rate 'Democratic speech at a Ward meeting.— j Nearly one-half is devoted to arguing the | practicability of reconstruction, the incai pacity of the negro, the superiority of the white race, negro supremacy, etc. In his 1 ardor to maintain his position he falsifies ' history and mis-states facts, lie argues that the Reconstruction measures of Congress are unconstitutional because they ; are predicated on the actual existence...

Letter from Sacramento. . [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 13 December 1867

Letter from Sacramento. . Oar city is alive with visitors. Some have come to rejoice over the result of the late election, and to join in the festivities of the inauguration of the Governor elect ; others, with pale cheeks and trom bling forms, weeping over the downfall of the Union party. The Legislature met on the 3d inst. The business of the day consisted chiefly . in making preliminary arrangements for permanent organization. In the Senate the officers were elected 011 Tuesday, but - the Assembly did not complete their organization until yesterday.

For Tlie iSlufaior. Andrew Jobnson and the Colored Race, j [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 13 December 1867

For Tlie iSlufaior. Andrew Jobnson and the Colored Race, j | Mr. Editor :—The Annual Message of the President of the United States to one of the co ordinate departments of the Government, is generally regarded by reflecting men to be a document of deliberate consideration, and taking a calm and statesmanlike view of the issues which pertain to the prosperity of the nation.— To most of the leading men in the Old World such a paper, emanating fiom so high a source, is looked upon as the index of advancement or retrogression, and as it appears from facts and circumstances that the country and people described are in a progressive condition, in the same ratio confidence is inspired and sympathy extended. But how humiliating to the pride of every true American to witness the occupant of the venerated position, so distinguished by the sagacity and probity of Washington, Jefterson, Madison, Monroe, and both the Adams, departing from the diguity of their State papers to indulge in such spec...

TELEGRAPHIC SUMMARY. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 13 December 1867

TELEGRAPHIC SUMMARY. Washington, Dec. 9.—ln the House j of Representatives, Mr. Boutweil con ] eluded his speech in favor of impeachment. Mr. Wilson replied. He said, the House is asked to itnpcach the President for fear he might do something wrong. He concluded by moving that the whole subject be laid on the table.— j The motion cuused much excitement, scv-: oral members wishing to make speeches. A motion to a ijourn was made, and sev- , eral votes taken and lost, which seemed' to indicate that there are about 51 friends! of impeachment to 107 opposed. The ship l.ord Brougham, at New York from Hamburg, reports the death I of 73 passengers by cholera. The ship j was forty eight days on the passage, and [ brought 382 passengers. The convention at Kichmond adopted; a resolution requiring members to report; whether they are disfranchised by action, of Congress. This movement toward ousting conservative members will give; rise to serious trouble. The convention will probably favorapract...

TROT, A CHRISTMAS STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 20 December 1867

TROT, A CHRISTMAS STORY. "Hopedale!" I opened my sleepy eyes as the conductor's voice rang through the cars, and taking my little carpet-lag, sprang out upon the platform of the little station. — My brief holiday was over, and with a shrug, I prepared for my short walk through the morning air, looking forward to the good fire and cup of coffee I was sure Mrß. Watson was keeping for me. It, was a very rare event for me to lejrfe the little village whose name heads this story. My father had been the only resident physician, from the time I was a boisterous school boy up to the hour when in his professional rounds he fell dead from heart disease in the main street, leaving me, his heretofore assistant, sole heir to his name, property, and practice, Ten years before they had carried my mother to the Utile churchyard, and in stalled Mrs. Watson in her place. The villagers were willing to let the young doctor step into his father's place beside their siok beds, and so for five years 1 had...

Fiom " Tho Negro in the American Rebellion." A Thrilling Incident of the War. It was in the month of December, 1832, while Colonel Rice and family wore Seat ed around a bright wood fire, whose blaze lighted up the large dining-room in their old mansion, situated ten miles from Drayton, in the £tate of Ohio, that they heard a knock at the door, which was answered by the familiar "come in," that always greets the stranger in the Western States. Squire Loomis walked in, and took a seat in one of the three rockingchairs which had been made vacant by the young folks, who rose to give place to their highly influential and wealthy neigh bor. It was a beautiful night: the sky was clear, the wind had hushed its deep moanings, The most brilliant of the starry throng stood out in bold relief, des pite the superior light of the moon. " I see some one standing at the gate," taid Mrs. Rice, as she left the window and came nearer the fire. "I'll go oat and see who it is,'' exclaimed George, as he ...

From the Commonwealth. Got. Andrew and the Flag of the First North Carolina Colored Regiment. A gentleman of this city went with Gen. Wild to North Carolina as a companion. Just as they were leaving the House, Gov. Andrew came out to bid Gen Wild good bye. He turned to the gentlemen and said : " Oh, I am so glad you are going with Wild. I beg of you to look into the matter of raising colored troops in North Carolina, and make aTull report to me." A regiment was raised for Wild's brigade in Newberne, in a very short time—in ten or twelve days. The enthusiasm was great among the colored people. Some of them B&id that " Gov. Andrew of Massachusetts had sent a great and brave man down there to teach them to fight." The colored women of Newberne did precisely what the women of the North did for their boys—formed a Soldiers' Relief Socicty. And when the gentleman who had gone to Newberne as Gen. Wild's friend was about leaving, a poor colored woman followed him to the steamer,...
