[From Forney's War Pres.*.] I The Future of the Freedinen. « [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 18 August 1865

[From Forney's War Pres.] The Future of the Freedinen. « Emancipation is the great experiment of this epoch of oar national history. To render it successful should be one of the highest aims of our statesmen, as it will be one of the noblest triumphs of our civilization. Slavery has done its utmost to' imbrute the colored race. Where education is strictly forbidden, where no marraige is sanctioned or respected, where the relation of husband and wife, parent and child, and aU the attendant responsibilities that bind free households together, are utterly ignored, and supplanted only by the rude tie between the master and his slave, the most valuable humanizing influences are inoperative, and the elevating instincts of the soul fearfully stunted and depressed. The freedinen and their arcestors have been held not merely in physical, but in moral, soclial, and intellectual bondage. Purposely kept in ignorance, we should not wonder at signs of stupidity, but endeavor to educate them. Deni...

Aid from France for the Freedinen [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 18 August 1865

Aid from France for the Freedinen We have already announced, says the New York Evening Post, the formation of a society of ladies in Paris, under the lead of Madame Laboulaye, for the purpose of providing clothing for the freedinen in our Southern States. The following is a more complete account of this benevolent enterprise : " On the 27th of April, a large meeting of ladles was held, and a society was formed, with Mad. Laboulaye as President, Mesdames Cochin and De Pressensi as Vice Presidents, and Madame Coiquet as Treasurer, with a numerous committee from among the most distinguished ladies of Paris, for the purpose of making clothirig for the liberated s'aves—ready-made clothing being considered preferable to money, as they can obtain its exception from freight and custom duties. The following circular, from the pen of M. Laboulaye, is extensively circulated by the association: 4At this moment, when all eyes are fixed on America, we appeal to your generosity in behalf of the sl...

Among the delegates from Georgia to the Charleston Convention in 18(!0 who refused to withdraw with the majority oi the delegation on the failure of the Convention to adopt the resolutions de manding Congressional protection of slavery in the Territories, was Wm.

HON. FRANK M. PIXLEY [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 18 August 1865

HON. FRANK M. PIXLEY This gentleman delivered the Opening Address at the Fifth Annual Fair of the Mechanics' Institute, Wednesday evening, the 9th inst., in Piatt's Music Hall. To say that it was learned and eloquent, is only saying what is well known of this learned lawyer and eloquent orator. To say it was sophistical, inappropriate and devoid of reason and argument, is what all will say who heard it delivered, or who have read it. It was evidently a bid for i political preferment, and surely he has already received his reward. His speech occupies four closely printed colums in the American Flag. After a beautiful exordium of gracefully termed sentences and well rounded periods, in which he answers the illiberal questions of Thomas Carlyle and shows that America has great souls that nations may worship, has enunciated great thoughts by which mankind may be benefited, has produced great tilings that the world may admire aud emulate; he eulogizes the heroes of the war, without conde...

Negrophobia. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 18 August 1865

Negrophobia. The traitorous wretch who edits the Examiner is howling over the cleaningout which his predecessor, the Democratic Press, received from the loyal citizens of San Francisco, last spring. He says : " Neither Boston, New York, Philadelphia nor Baltimore were 'compelled to chronicle to their lasting and ineradicable infamy the outrages which darkened the previously fair character of our occidental city." Does he forget the Democratic orgies which New York was " compelled to chronicle" in July, 1863? Is he oblivious to the fact that the fiends who slaughtered inoffensive women and children; who hung innocent loyal men for no crime, nor offence against them, were the " good friends " of Governor Seymour, one of the idols of the Examinor's worship ? Does he not remember who it was that not only " broke into the money box of an Orphan Asylum," but robbed the innocent children of their clothing, fired the noble structure which private charity had erected, unaided by municipal or...

COMMUNICATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 18 August 1865

COMMUNICATIONS. Mr. Pixley's Speech. Mr. Editor:—Perhaps you was as much surprised as I was on perusing Mr. Pixley's remarks on the opening of the Fair of the Mechanics' Institute, on the 9th inst We had always given that gentleman credit for his independent, out-spoken efforts in behalf of our testimony bill, and later, on his return from " the front," he was "sticking his pegs ahead" in behalf of " liberty to all." But a sad "change has come over the spirit of his dream," aiul now the poor negro, and the still poorer celestial, must form the subject of his " brief" for the Senatorial Court. But hear the learned attorney : " Let the negro fill the position which God has given him. Let him be protected in his freedom, in his domestic ties ; let him be compensated for his labor ; let him be educated to the exteut of his capacity; let him be protected in his life and property ; let him have freedom of religious worship, and let him be content. Either his race or mine is the superior. ...

Livingstone Institute. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 18 August 1865

Livingstone Institute. Mr. Editor :—ln an article in The Eleevator of last week you take pains to characterize the management of the Livingstone Institute, to which we would have no objections, provided you had made correct statements. Had you been as careful to ascertain and make correct statements respecting the Institute as you was particular to present the officers of the concern in !an unfavorable light, you would have saved us the disagreeable necessity of correcting your misstatements, —statements that neither serve yourself, you constituents, nor the institution. That the constitution of the "concern " had no date to it, is incorrect. Had you read it, as you ought, you would have known better. That none of the officers appeared to know anything about when the concern was organized, is grossly incorrect. We must confess that the secretary of the "concern" must be an ignoramus, having written the Constitution, and kept the books and papers of the institution, if he is ignorant...

[For i lit- K i vaior.] | A Reading-Room Wanted for Our Evening Entertainment [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 18 August 1865

[For i lit- K i vaior.] | A Reading-Room Wanted for Our Evening Entertainment During our daily labor, while the physical portion of the constitution is in motion, the mind also is in operation ; during which, while it conducts the body through its diurnal toil, should receive for its evening remuneration, gratification and amusement, the rich effusions of living or departed minds, whose pages so often lead us from the lower to the higher order of material things—guide us to the great portals of knowledge, to view the living mon- , urnents which intelligence and progress have built. Why should we not have a readingroom, and in this city particularly?— There our old and young men could have their nightly intellectual feasts—far better amusement than those well known haunts to which they seem compelled to resort. The walls of such a room might be adorned with the photographs of the champions of freedom, on whose achievements our ministers of religion and teachers would be pleased to le...

The colored people of Solano county assembled in Benecia on Monday evening, the 14th instant, to elect a delegate to the State Convention called for Monday October 25th.

Professor Patou Stewart. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 18 August 1865

Professor Patou Stewart. We visited the rooms of this gentleman and witnessed his various exercises in the art of self-defence. The Professor has not deteriorated aught from what be was many years ago, when we first knew him. Since then he has visited Europe and practised in the principal gymnasiums of England and France, and become proficient in small and broadsword exercises, boxing, etc. He has likewise been to Ireland and learned to use the shillaly in such a manner as would make him a dangerous customer in a row. He very cordially invited us to put on the gloves, or to take a stick—in fact, he was pressing, but we politely declined. We saw him and his papils knocking each other about, and that was enough. Mr. Stewart kept the most popular gymnasium in Boston, and he has certificates from some of the first • gentlemen in that city, who were his pupils. He also teaches all the arts of manly exercise which are conducive to health and the increase of strength and muscular developme...
