THE BOARD OF EDUCATION AND j THE COLORED PUBLIC SCHOOL. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 20 December 1867
THE BOARD OF EDUCATION AND j THE COLORED PUBLIC SCHOOL. At a meeting of the Hoard of Education G&lt;;n. Cobb, oue of the recently clected members of this body, said the colored school oil Broadway was a nuisance and should be removed. The subject was referred to a committee. We should like to know by what authority Mr. Cobb pronounced that partic- ■ ular school a nuisance. Wo see by a report of the last meeting of the Board, on the 19th inst., that Mr. Cobb qualifies his objectionable phraseology. He now says he intended no invidious reflection on the colored school ; he meant that two schools together created a nuisance—a school for white children being contiguous. Tothat we make no objection, as we also are of the same opinion ; all we desire is that our school should not receive sucli a severe sentence of condemnation as to be pro nounced a nuisance by the Board of Education of the city of San Francisco. Last Friday evening, at a very large public meeting, this subject wa...

Amusements. j ! Prof. W. H. Blake's second grand Op peratic Concert was given on Tuesday evening, 17th inst. Notwithstanding this was the moßt inclement night of the season, Dashaway Hall was nearly filled with; as fashionable and as attentive an audience as we ever saw assembled on a similar occasion. The singers were all in fiue voice, and I acquitted themselves with great credit, | and to the eutire satisfaction of the audience. Mrs. J Smith made her first appearjance, and sang the difficult parts assigned 'her with great precision and effect. This lady, with Misses Lester and Miles, were the principle artists, aud deserve high commendation for their performances. Mr. A. C. Taylor presided at the piano with his usual ability. The concert was arranged and conducted by Mr. Blake, who showed his proticien cy in the divine art. Misses Phillips, Da?is and Evans are likewise deserving of great praise. Want of space prevents us from giving a more extended notice. Maguire's Opera House r...

For The Elevator. Pieaidont Jo'iuson and Governor Haight on ITegroism. Certainly, there could not bo anything move humiliating to the pride of a true American than to see those palpable perversions of History,Christianity,and claims of common justice, as made by those? high I functionaries of the country in their Execj cotivc manifestoes, in aiming to degrade J the Negro citizen of America, for political purposes. The perversion of such important principles, coming from Mich responsible sources, is fraught with too much mischief, at least to the class of men at which they aim, not to bo met with bold refutation from those whom they seek to victimize. President Johnson in his message on the Negro's capacity for self government, asserts that "if anything can be proved by known facts, if all reasoning upon evidence is not abandoned, we must acknowlegc that in the progress of Nations the Negroes have shown less capacity for government than any other race of people." It is obvious from t...
Livingstone Institute. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 20 December 1867
Livingstone Institute. Mr. Editor :—Knowing that your readers have taken some interest in this organization, it -occurred to me that a brief history of the lustitnte might be acceptable. About six years ago the Rev. J. W. Brier conceived the idea of establishing a Collegiate or Academic School upon a firm basis, for the colored people of this coast. After consulting with several gentlemen. with this object in view he organized a Board of Trustees from different parts of this State, from which an Executive Committee was selected, on whom, to a very great extent, devolved the execution of their plana. The Trnstees at one of their first meetings resolved that the school should be at San Francisco, and that no buildings should bo commenced until the bum of teu thousand dollars was collected or permanently secured. It was thought that this sum could easily be raised, and Mr. Brier volunteered his services, free of charge, for several mouths, and with the assistance of the Rev. J. .J. Moo...

Latter from Nevada County. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 20 December 1867
Latter from Nevada County. I Mud Hill, Dec. 9th. Mr. Bditor :—"One of tho best men I ever knew." llow often we hear that said of persons after death has removed them from our sight. Virtues we never thought they possessed, how apparent.— What seemed to us great vices during their life time have dwindled into sins minute, and charity's great mantle is spread over all their wrong doings. Weeping ones recount their acts of love ; the public prints their deeds of charity, aud the tombstone their age and virtues above their mouldering bones. Their vicos, of course, are uot graven on stone. If we judge by the tombstones where dead people lie, We shall reach the conclusion that no bad people die: Mr. Editor, I never reached that conclusin, and when I die I hope no one will [eulogize me, but sin.ply say Mrs. Trask has gone to sleep. That will bo the truth. These reflections were brought to my mind by looking over some old letters last evening. I opened one and read :— "No doubt you will be ...
