THE MECHANIC ARTS [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 11 August 1865
THE MECHANIC ARTS We fear wo pay too little attention as | a class to the importance of obtaining trades for our children. Many objections are raised which we know have weight in the minds of some, but which we do not consider sufficient to counterbalance the great advantage which a good mechanic has over other occupations. We will proceed to state the objections which we often hear, and which we will j endeavor to answer. Some say, " We will not apprentice our children to white mechanics, they will not learn them, or they will make servants instead of mechanics of them." To this we answer, there are some good men who • I will do justice by colored apprentices, and if a boy has any mechanical genius, lie] can learn sufficient during his apprenticeship to perfect himself afterwards. At all 1 events it is worth risking. Another objection raised is, "after a I boy has a trade he cannot get work; white employers will n# engage him, and white! journeymen will not work with him." We confe...
LIVINGSTONE INSTITUTE. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 11 August 1865
LIVINGSTONE INSTITUTE. Wo attended the meeting of- the Trusi tecs and Stockholders of this educational incorporation on Monday evening, the Ith inst., and as proxy for several Stockholders wo took an active part in the proceedings, and a more loosely conducted concern we never saw. Not a document bears any date, —neither constitution, circular, nor certificate of stock. We could with difficulty find out when the Institute was organized—none of the officers appeared j to know. After getting some data on which to I base our inquiries, the President, E. Jolmj son, Esq., gave a verbal report of the finan- | cial condition of the Institute. We gave I our views—heretofore expressed in our col- ! limns—on the subject of transferring the interest and influence of Livingstone Institute to San Jose, and uniting it with the school there established by the Plrcenixonian Institute, and now successfully conducted by Professor Peter W. Cassey. All parties present coincided with us in that proposit...

Wreck of the Brother Jouathau. Our worst fears are realized.

Truths. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 11 August 1865
Truths. Forgiveness is an angel of light. Revenge is a demon of darkness. Wisdom is light from Heaven. Virtue is the divinity of truth. Music is the essence of poetry. Poetry is the harmony of the universe, wreathed into the soul by Angels. Death is the transfiguration of the soul to higher conditions of freedom. Knowledge is chiefly acquired by failures, trials, and extreme conditions of life. Calumny is a weapon used by the envious—at which all truth-loving and aspiring souls are impervious. It often proves a scorpion's §ting to the possessor. Eliza A. Pittsinger.

TELEGRAPHIC SUMMARY. The Overland Telegraph is still down east of Salt Lake. The mail from Den. ver brought papers to Salt Lake, from which a few items have been telegraphed. There were fears of a negro insurrection at Charleston. It was reported thai they intended to rise in rebellion, but on investigation it was traced to no reliable source. The health of Charleston is said to be excellent,except among the negroes, who are dying in large numbers.
