Commodore Chauncey, during the | war of 1812, commanded for a portion of the time the fleet on Lake Ontario, and i had the extremely good fortune never to exchange a ho-tile shot with the enemy. There were a great many uncharitable enough to blame the Commodore for this, as they believed he wa? rather anxious j that this should be the case. Several I years after he was placed in charge of a | navy yard,and one day caught a youngster j with a basket gathering chip 9. Walking up to him, he snatchcd the basket from his hand, and in a rough tone ordered him to leave the premises at once, while he confiscated his property for his presumption in entering on the forbidden ground. The little fellow backed away until assured that he was beyond danger, and then he called out: ' Keep the basket if you want it! It is the only prize you ever took! " An EnglUh champion swimmer swam &gt;a thousand yards in seventeen minutes. This is said to be the fastest time on irecord.

Bishop Clinton. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 31 January 1868
Bishop Clinton. We acknowledge our remissness in not | noticing the movements and appointments] of this reverend gentleman. It was from no intentional neglect on our part. A friend promised to furnish us with the necessary information, but the urgency of his duties prevented him. We attended one meeting of the Conference, and was much pleased with the proceedings. The lecture Wednesday evening, of which we give a synopiss in another column, was attentively listened to by a very large audience for nearly two hours. Superintendent Clinton is a finished orator; of commandiog appearance, a voice almost musical in its intonations, and a graceful, easy style. His manner is conversational, he is at times almost too low, bis gestures few and appropriate. From his gentlemanly bearing, his Christian character and varied accomplishments, he is deservedly popular. The late Elias Howe, Jr., of sewing machine fame, left an estate valued at 1 $618,000.
BISHOP CLINTONS LECTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 31 January 1868
BISHOP CLINTONS LECTURE. This reverend divine delivered a capital lecture on Wednesday evening in Zion 1 Methodist Church. Stockton street. The | 1 Bishop was introduced to the audience by Rev. John J. Moore in an appropriate ' address, which had the desired effect of bringing the lecture en rapport with his audience. After an affecting eulogiumon our martyred President, the Bishop comj meuced his lecture on the CONDITION ON THE FREEDMEN. He first gave a description of the celebration of the first anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation in Ncwburn, N. C., January Ist 1804. He was there fulfilling his Episcopal duties, and was also agent for the American and British Freedmen's Commission. He was invited to deliver the oration ; a large procession was formed, consisting of 8,000 persons, chiefly of those who had been emancipated by the Proclamation. His reception by that immense gathering was enthusiastic. After the oration the audience sang "John Brown," and the high dignitary o...

For The Elevator. The Organization and Close of the First California Annual Conference of the African M. E. Zion Church in America This body met on Wednesday, the Bth inst., at 2 o'clock p. m., in the Zion Church on Stockton street, San Francisco, under the Presidency of the Rt. Rev. Joseph Jackson Clinton, one of the Bishops of the Zion connection. The session continued for eight successive days, which was characterized with deep interest, great harmony and important action—action not only relating to the interest of the Zion Church general, but relating to the general interest of the colored American citizens, as embraced in the action on the reports of committees on the state of the country and on education, as will appear in due time in public print. A marked feature of our deliberations was the executive ruling of Bishop Clinton, which was highly characteristic of enlightened progress and rapid advancement of our religious institutions. During the session we were visited by som...
From the Valley. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 31 January 1868
From the Valley. morality versus immorality. How painful to behold a being with the ! impress of the Creator upon his brow, endowed with intellectual abilities which might stamp him an ornament to society, and a useful member thereof, striving by every means in his power to reach the lowest pit of degradation. To the lover of virtue the contemplation of such a spectacle is indeed painful and disgusting.— And yet in this progressive age we too often find women the apologists for many of the vices to which men are addicted ; too often, alas ! behold those creatines whose greatest boast is their infamy, lionized and courted by the fairer sex. What can we expect from such a course ;as this, other than that virtue should be at a discount, and vice bear on its face a | premium ? If we ever hope to be surj rounded by a better moral atmosphere than at present pervades the State of California, women must take a more decided | stand against vice and immorality in every ! form, than has ever b...

Letter from Stockton. At a meeting of the colored citizens of [Stockton, convened January 21st, it was | resolved that a committee be appointed to communicate to the public organs of San | Francisco the steps and measures adopted by them in this city on the Ist of January, 1868, in honor of the fifth anniversary of Freedom. In view of that day all necessary preparation was made, and toward it all hearts eagerly looked with jubilant expectation. As it drew near and still, desire grew stronger and hope ! became more expansive ; nature itself seemed to predict the approach of a day ! bearing on its wings joy and peace to both j young and old—the sorrow of these being i turned into an ocean of rejoicing, while i the hearts of those need fear no tyrant's sway, nor dread the despot's power, but with bouyaut hearts they are able to triumph in the God-given liberty of heaven, "freedom of mind and body." Thus they waited until within two days of the long looked for morning, when nature seeme...

Apostrophe to Lincoln. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 31 January 1868
Apostrophe to Lincoln. Calvin B. McDonald is making the American Unionist, published at Salem, Oregon, glow with his articles of beauty and power. The following is a specimeu of his fine, vigorous writing. It reminds us of the days when he made the Flag a mine of literary wealth. Every sentence is a gem. It is as gorgeous as a string of diamonds in a setting of unalloyed gold : " Glorious Old Abe ! as votive millions love to call him in affection, how illustrious ho lived and died for Freedom, and how imperishable is the halo of his memory ! Like the strong man of the Hebrews, he shook down the temple of slavery with his lust departing strength, while that which was immortal swiftly ascended the Causeway of the skies. The sign of his de- | parture went round the circumference of the globe, and when the eternal gates were lifted up there was but one thought in all the sad memories of the people, and but one name faltered in a boundless vale of tears. The signals of mourning drooped i...
