TELEGRAPHIC SUMMARY. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 20 December 1867
TELEGRAPHIC SUMMARY. New York, Dec. 16.—The Herald's Havana special states that Authentic intelligence from Spain says that the Government has made a forma! offer to the Amoriean Government to sell Cuba and Porto Rico for the price of one hundred and fifty million? in gild ; terms, fifty millions in cash, fifty millions in one year, and the balace in six years. Great excitement prevails over the news, the ex tinction of slavery being one of the consequencee of the sale. National pride is somewhat disposed to grumblo, but the general feeling is of satisfaction. It is regarded here that the bargain is certain to be completed. Intelligence from Hayti brings bloody tidings. Montez was brutally murdered by his jailor, doubtless at the command of Salnave. The ruffian first gave him poison, which failing, he beat out his brains with an iron bar. Montez's broth er was chained in the same prison, and was compelled to witness the tragedy.— Many families havo emigrated to Jamaica in consequenc...

Tlior, A CHRISTMAS STORY. CONCLUDED. Eleven, months had this dear little treasure been an inmate of my house, when there came into my life a new; dream of hope and happiness. About five j mihs from Hopedale there resided, and | had lived for many long jears, an eccen trie old bachelor, by name Hermon Graham. His home, Leehaven, was very far away from any cluster of houses, indeed | nearly a mile from any other residence ; j and here, in solitary state, with only two | ancient servitors for his household, he bad; ,lived ever since I could remember. He) i was.a morose, ill-tempered man, and some! !early cross had made him adopt a per-' fectlv hermit like seclusion, though his wealth would have commanded every ad-1 vantage society could over. It was early! lin November that I was Summoned to at j ' tend this odd genius, professionally. The 'little note brought to my office by an el- : derly man on horseback, was signed "L f lian Graham," and urged my immediate attention. It was a long,...

"Oh ! how often, while hid away in the forest, waiting for nightfall,have I thought 'of the beautiful lines I heard a stranger recite: 'Oh hail, Columbia! happy land, — The cradle-land of liberty! Where none but negroes bear the brand, Or feel the lash of slavery. ' Then let the glorious anthem peal, And drown 'Britannia rules the waves :' Strike up the song that men can Feel, — i 'Columbia rules four million slaves.'

THE CLQ9INO OF THE YEAR. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 27 December 1867
THE CLQ9INO OF THE YEAR. Another revolving cycle of time has brought around the end of the year, and wo are now on the verge of another. What various changes have taken place, what new ideas have been elaborated, what friendHhips lost and made, how inany severed by death, and what mutations of time and circumstance. We are entering upon a new year which will bring with it like changes, and may we be prepared to meet them. Besides the usual vicissitudes of life, we have now anew element of political opposition to contend with which wo had not when the expiring year had its birth. We must nerve our hearts, strengthen our hands and fortify our minds to meet the difficulties with which we will be surrounded, and may God enable us to meet them with Christian reBignition. We should uot despair ; we have the consciousness of right, and though clouds may envelope our political firmanent, still the bright star of Ilope gleams in the horizon. The Elevator still lives. That, too, has had its t...

For The Elevator. A Continued Review of the Constitutional . Basis of the States of the Union, vindicating Equality before the Law of all American citizens. Mr. Editor : You will excuse my recent encroachment upon the space of your valuable journal, which is our battle ax and political censor of tho Pacific coast. This being a time of political warfare, no time or opportunity must be lost. In continuing the review of the fundamental doctrines of the American republic, as endorsed by the State Constitutious, we act upon the principle enunciated by sacred writ—"Out of thine own mouth will I judge thee." The testimony of a man's own mouth is of the strongest kind. The late political revulsion of the American j nation places the Republic in the untenable position of a hypocrite, or as being i at war with its own existence. The nation must either be in favor of equality before ' the law, as announced in all their State; Constitutions, or against it. For the ua tion to pronounce universal...
For The Elevator. Important to Colored Men. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 27 December 1867
For The Elevator. Important to Colored Men. Mr. occupying a portion of, the limited space of your columus, in attempting to discuss the utility of colored j men engaging in agricultural pursuits, my purpose is solely to arouse their attention, to the mighty conflict which is imperceptibly creeping upon them—a conflict, which if they are not prepared to meet pecuniarily, must terminate in serious disaster to their future social position. We will commencc by assuming that the success which has attended the efforts of col- ored men is to be attributed to sympathy upon one side, and the pride of the white race npon the other, who disdaining to compete with colored men in the various vocations they have been accustomed to follow, left the whole field of labor open to their toil ; but the emergencies of the hour, combined with an overflowing emigration of people greedy to enter-every channel, has worked a radical change in the relative positions of both races—the whites, once so lenient t...

Letter from Sacramento. The Storm King has been raging in this vicinity. lie has demolished houses, torn zinc from the decks of boats, unroofed buildings, broken windows, etc. Our small rivers are enraged like some troubled sea ; they devour everything before them, and are four inches higher than during the innundation of 1862, and are still rising. This storm is unrivaled in the history of this almost doomed city. The gtorm, or something else (patriotism, perhaps,) has aroused our people to a sense of duty. They have finally agreed tto celebrate Freedom's Natal Day. Rev. | Amos Johnson has been chosen President of the Day ; Rev. J. H. Hubbard will deliver the oration ; P. L. Hickman, poet ; A. Jackson will read the great Charter of American Freedom. Others, fully capable will officiate, thus makiug the celebration worthy the occasion. Last year some of our cities failed to raise money enough to defray the expenses of celebrating this grand jubilee. I hope' this will never be the ca...
