EMANCIPATION CELEBRATION [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 3 January 1868

EMANCIPATION CELEBRATION The greatest event in the history of the colored people of America was celebrated on New Year's Day with the usual imposing ceremonies. The morning waa unfortunately very stormy, which delayed the procession, and doubtless prevented many from joining. The line of march waß| formed at about II 1-2 o'clock, uuder di , rection of Sergeant W. H. Carney, Grand j Marshal, aided by Messrs. M. Howard t and J. Recder. That well disciplinedj military company, the Brannan Guards,! Captain A. G. Deninson, led the procession, preceded by the Pacific Brass Baud, in their new uniform. This band has im proved greatly, and their performances are now equal to almost any band of their number in the city. The Committee of Arrangements came next, followed by the Young Men's Union Beneficial Society.— This society, with their beautiful bauner, added greatly to the interest manifested ou the occasion. The officers of the day, in carriages, and two largo cars deerated with American...

The President's Address. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 3 January 1868

The President's Address. Fribkds, Comrades and Fellow-Citizf.\s:— For the fifth time we have assembled to celebrate the Emancipation Proclamation, Freedom's Natal day. The midnight of oppression has vanished before the rising sun of American libety. No slave clanks his chains beneath the broad stripes and biight stars of the itlag of our common country. Freedom waves her wand from the Atlantic to the Pacific, while the Palmetto and the old Bay State, " arm in arm," each give to black Americans the right to vote, speak, work and write. We are, iu the language of the martyred President, " henceforth and forever free." The brazen heel of the oppressor's foot shall never more rest upon our necks. Never, while the sun rolls through the blue vault of Heaven. To-day we lift up our unshakled hands iu praise to God. Our yokes and gyves have all been plowed under ground by the sharp, red-hot plow-share of war.— Henceforth we will raise a nation of freemen instead of a race of vassals and slav...

Oration, by Rev. J. B. Sanderson. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 3 January 1868

Oration, by Rev. J. B. Sanderson. Five years ago, that immortal document, the Emancipation Proclamation of President Abraham Lincoln, weut forth over the nation, proclaiming " Liberty throughout the land and unto all the inhabitants' thereof." Americans, loyal to the Union, lovers of liberty everywhere, felt that this was the act of national'repentance of outgreat sin and crime—that the year of the nation's jubilee had come. Four millions, the subjects of this Act and its bekificent operations, saw in it the hand, heard in it the voice, of Jehovah : " I have surely seen the afflictions of my people. I have heard their cry by reason of their taskmasters. I have come down to deliver them. I have also seen the oppression wherewith this people oppress them. 1 have surely visited them, and will bring them up out of their afflictions." To-day we celebrate the fifth anniversary of the greatest moral revolution of this nation during the present century. Future generations will see its deep ...

For Th? Elevator. Mr. Editor : —In a district not a tKocsand miles from Maryland there was a society organized among my people (colored), about thirty-five years ago, ostensibly ' for mutual benevolence.

Who They Are. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 3 January 1868

Who They Are. We have repeated inquiries, by letter and otherwise, as to the identity of our regular correspondents. Who is Osceola ? Who is Avis? Who is Amego? Who is Tyro ? Who is Private L'Ouverture ? Who is Mrs Trask ? and where the devil is Mud Hill? These questions are of daily occurrence,and we will answer elaborately, and without circumlocution, as Dogberry might say : "Osceola" is a big Indian (not big Indian me), a lineal descendant from Tommy Hawk and Blanket Sue. "Avis" is a rare bird of passage, a regular tearer Avisincognitia. "Amego" is a Spanish gentleman from 'way down East. "Tyro" is familiar, an unsophisticated youth who« taking a quiet rest in Sacramento. "Private L'Ouverture" was a high private somewhere, and in some war. He has " done the State some service, and they know it," and if they don't, he does. At all events he is doing The Elkvator some service. Mrs. Trask is "Semper Fidelis," and "Semper Fidelis" is Mrs. Trask. She is a genial old lady of sixty, who...
