Letter from £1 Dorado County. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 27 December 1867

Letter from £1 Dorado County. El Dorado, Doc., 1867. s Mr. Editor :—I learn from your valua- I ble paper that the Executive Committee 1 of San Francisco have prepared a petition for the extension of the elective franchise, 1 to be presented to the Legislature of this • State, now in session. I heartily coincide ' with you in your views on the right of 1 petition, and I do not agree with those I who say that this is not the time to petition, because the present government of i this State is Democratic. That does not make our rights the losf ; justice is the same. We are native born American citizens, and are tax payers and supporters of the Government. Will the Legislature now deny us our rights because they arc Democrats. I do uot think they will. If they do, they will belie their own principles. A Democrat is one who adheres to j a government by the people, and who fa-1 vors the extension of political rights and privileges to all classes of men, and I do not see any good cause why ...

Letter from Idaho. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 27 December 1867

Letter from Idaho. Idaiio City, I. T , Dec. 2. « Mk. Editor :—I sec there is a division in the ranks of the Republicans North, as well as in your State It is claimed by mauy that the issue of Negro Suffrage is the cause of the defeat ; the Republicans of Ohio and Pennsylvania repudiated the isslie, and refused to accept the negro as part of their body politic. It looks very much as though they were shirking the negro. Many battle-scared veterans, who stackad their muskets aud sheathed their swords with the promise of justice as their reward, are denied the rights of American citizens, even in the North. I ask, has this party kept the pledge they made ? Ilavc they trod in the footsteps of Congress ? Have they followed | up their victories? No, sir. Like the i school-boy, they played truant by the way, and stopped too long to consult their prejudices. Hundreds have bolted and are now swinging round the political circle. It is these renegades who are alone responsible for the defeat of...

For The Elevator. PROCLAMATION DAY—JAN. Ist. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 27 December 1867

For The Elevator. PROCLAMATION DAY—JAN. Ist. The »ar is past, the struggle's o'er, And Lincoln's on the heavenly shore. Assassins cruel did the deed, And thus from earth his spirit free'd, The year rolls round and steals away And brings this Proclamation Day. We hope to meet our friend John Brown, The great, the high, the noble one Who died for freedom, calm though brave, To tear the shackle a from the slave. He passed through the ethereal blue And hap'ly joined the Angels too. Abraham Lincoln, thou art there, The triumph with good men to share, Who led us on the great highway That brought the Proclamation Day. Though dwelling in a foreign land, I long to press the enfranchised hand Of brothers, sisters, once enslaved, Who long have cruel hardships braved. Then may we all with heartfelt strain Sing grateful hymns to heroes alain. Then, Christian friends, let's alw»ys pray, When comes the Proclamation Day. Mrs. Rebecca Gibbs. Barkersville, B. C.

Anniversary of Emancipation. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 27 December 1867

Anniversary of Emancipation. When President Lincoln put forth the Proclamation of Emancipation, and said of the slaves, " They are, and henceforward shall be, free," and pledged the Government and people of the U.S. "to recognize and maintain their freedom," he solemnly added : " And upon this act of justice, warranted by the Constitution upon military necessity, I invoke the considerate judgment of mankind and the gracious favor of Almighty God." And now can the people of the U. S. do less than make a contribution on the recurrence of Emancipation Day for the poor Freedmen, until they are placed where they can earn a living ? Great success has attended the efforts of the American FreedmEn'B Union Commission, now appealing to you, but tens of thousands are still dependent upon it for the necessaries of life and schools. The undersigned, in the name of the Commission, most earnestly and respectfully asks of all a donation on Emancipation Day, January Ist, 1868, for this purpose, and ...

A Fortunate Advertisement. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 3 January 1868

A Fortunate Advertisement. Friday afternoon, in the first sultry days of June, the passengers who were fortunate kept the 6hady side of the car, while tho-e who came on late pulled down the blinds, and resigned themselves, martyr like, to an uncomfortable situation. Among the last to be seated was Annie Churchill. She had walked from her school-room to the depot— not a very long walk, but quite too long for such a day ; she had walked fast, for her duties had detained her later than usual, and she feared she would be left. She came on faint and Bick with heat. It was the last seat —a straight, uucomfortable one in the corner, and she must share it with a woman and baby, much to the inconven ience of sundry baskets and bundles that had occupied that place beside their owner. The last seat; and Annie looked despairingly around, but with the comforting reflection that it was for only 12 I twelve miles she sat down. The air was fctifling; but soon the mo tion of the cars brought a sligh...

The Bible. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 3 January 1868

The Bible. The statistics of the Bible may be summed up thus : The Scriptures have been translated into 148 languages and dialects, of which 141 had, prior to the formation of the British Foreign Bible Society, never appeared. And 25 of the languages existed without an alphabet, in an oral form.— Upwards of 43,000,000 of those copies of God's Word are circulated among not less than 0,000,000.000 of people. The first division of the Divine Oracles into chapters and verses, is attributed to Stephen Langton, Archbishop of Canterbury, in the reign of King John, in the latter part of the 12th century, or beginning of the 13th. Cardinal Hugo, in the middle of the 13th century, divided the Old Testament into chapters, as they stand in our translation. In 1561, Athias, a Jew of Amsterdam, divided the sections of Hugo into verses—a French printer had previously (1561) divided the New Testament into verses as they are at present. the Old Testament contains 39 books, 929 chapters, 23,214 verse...
