VISIT TO THE COLORED SCHOOL [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 7 February 1868

VISIT TO THE COLORED SCHOOL In company with Revs. Superintendent Clinton, J. J. Moore, Messrs. W. H. Hall, Ruggles, Dennis and Berry, we yesterday visited the public school for colored children, on Broadway. There was between sixty and seventy children present in the principal department, all looking remark- | ably neat and healthy. We heard several j classes recite, and they evinced great proj ficiency in their studies. We were likewise regaled with music. A fine piano i has been added to the apparatus, and lessons in music are regularly given. We ; heard very creditable performances on this instrument by Master Sampson and j Miss Edmunds. Bishop Clinton said he was highly pleased with the proficiency ef the pupils, and with the order and regularity which was maintained ; and he urged the children to obedience to their teachers, and to projgress in their studies. Rev. J.J. Moore was also gratified at the improvement in discipline, and the visible advancement which the children were...

Letter from Nevada County. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 7 February 1868

Letter from Nevada County. Mud Hill, JaV 30, 1868. Mr. Editor :— A distinguished man said, "Let me write the songs for a nation, I care not who frames its laws." I say let good mothers educate their sons, I care not what laws a Republic may frame, ' only such as deal righteously will be obeyed. Women alone have learned the art of governing the affections, cultivating the intellect, developing the whole nature of the boy, the germ of the man. Among great men we find very many acknowledging the power they weilded was strengthened by the teachings and examples of their mothers. Napoleon, with a sagacity unsurpassed, said, " the future destiny of the child is the work of the mother," and when we remember that he had not the highest estimate of women, his words have a significant meaning. The mother of Washington said she taught him goodness when a child, and whenever we speak his name let it be coupled with Mary, his mother, and if we wish our children to become great, lut us, like her,...

Biahop Clinton in Sacramento Mr. Editor :—To day our town was all agog upon the announcement of the arrival of Superintendent Clinton, of Zion A. M. E. Church, and that he would see his friends at the 6th Street M. E. Church at 11 o'clock a. h. Notwithstanding the shortness of the notice, an audience quite respectable in numbers, including many of our white friends, assembled to do honor |to our distinguished visitor. Among the j congregation present were Revs. T. M. D. : Ward J. 11. Hubbard, of Bethel A. M. E. I Church, A. Johnson, of Siloam Baptist Church.

From the Atlantic Monthly. A Mysterious Personage. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 14 February 1868

From the Atlantic Monthly. A Mysterious Personage. CONCLUDED. And here for a long season we lost sight of the General, though two or three circumstances occurred, each trival in it self, but all tending to give a new aspect to the affair. Just before he left us we had a small party at our house, where among other amusements, a game called "The Four Elements" was introduced.— When it was all over, and our visitors were gone, a costly handkerchief, with a lace border, was not to be found. It had been last seen in the hands of Genera l Bratish. Having no idea that, if he had pocketed it by mistake, it would not be returned, we waited patiently,—very pa tiently,—supposing he might have thrown aside his company dress coat without ex amining the pockets, and that when he put it on again the handkerchief would be forthcoming, of course. But no, nothing was heard of it, until one ever.ing at a lecture my wife suddenly caught my arm, and, pointing to a white handkerchief the Genera' wa-flour...

A Colored Milliliter oil Social Kquality. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 14 February 1868

A Colored Milliliter oil Social Kquality. Rev. Mr. Butler, a colored minister, addressed the Kentucky Colored Conven tion, at Louisville, a few days ago, as fol lows : " The future of this country depends not so much on what party is in power, as it does on the removal of all disabili t>es ; they weigh down the people. Then, and not till then, will the country have peace. We don't ask for social equality, J never saw that white woman yet that looked as well, in my eyes, as a good brown colored woman. And if it wasn't so, we don't need thoir social equality, because our friends, the white folks, have kindly managed it so that we have every shade to choose from, from the deepest jet black to the purest white. [ Laughter.] And, as there are no ladies present, allow me to say that the practice of social equality has not been on our side, but on the part of the whites, who in their dark and devious ways, were not always üb'e, let us charitably suppose, t> toll black...

Let the Forgiven Fear. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 14 February 1868

Let the Forgiven Fear. A soldier whoso regiment lay in a garrison town in England was about to be brought before his commanding officer for some offence. He was an old offender, and had been often punished. "Here he is again," said the officer, on his name being mentioned ; " everything—flogging, : disgrace, imprisonment—has been tried , with hiin." Whereupon the sergeant stepped forward, and apologizing for the 1 liberty he took, said : " I here is one thing which has never 1 been done with him yet, sir," " What is that ? " Said the sergeant, "he has never been i forgiven." "Forgiven ! " exclaimed the colonel,, surprised at the suggestion. He reflected for a few moments, or dered the culprit to be brought in, and asked him what he had to say to the charge. "Nothing, sir," was the reply, " only I am sorry for what 1 have done." Turning a kind and pitiful look on the man, who expected nothing else than his punishment w»u!d be increased with the repetition of his offence, the colonel ...

Uarbaru Fiietchic. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 14 February 1868

Uarbaru Fiietchic. When *Stonewall Jackson's army entered Frederick City, in 1862, the rebel inhabitants came out with welcoming acclamations, as the gray clad veterans filed through the town, with their battlescared i onfederate flag. But there was one good soul among them who was displeased with the pageant. It was Barbara Frietchie, aged almost ninety years—one of the Huguenots of freedom. While the exultant standard of rebellion floated over the ancient town, the feeble old woman had concealed in her chamber a small American flag; and when the rebel troopers were passing by. she flung out the stars and stripes and held the staff in her hand, which tr> mbled with the feebleness of age and the strong passion of her patriotic soul. She leaned out from tho window sill, and dared them to fire ; and as the guns of some of the more savage ruffians were about to be presented, Stonewall Jackson, t'truek w.th the heroism of tho poor old x woman, perhaps feeling a shade of remor...
