THE COLORED PUBLIC SCHOOL [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 28 February 1868
THE COLORED PUBLIC SCHOOL We arc compelled again to revert to this subject. It appears the colored school causes General Cobb and the Democratic members of our Board of Ed- ; ucation a great deal of trouble. They i first pronounced it a nuisance ; and when , that was found to be too strong a term, they faintly qualified it by saying it was a nuisance to have to have two Bchools, joue white and the other colored, in juxtaposition, as the scholars of the respective schools did not agree. As if boys in sepjarte schools in juxtaposition with each other ever did agree! To obviate this I difficulty, it was proposed to remove the I colored school " back of Taylor street." A lot wits selected on Jackson street, belyond Taylor, and we thought the affair was settled, and that they had at last got the colored school where it would not offend the olfactories of the constituents of the Democratic members of the Board of Education. While not approving of that location— as it is not sufficiently c...
W I I I I > Obituary. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 28 February 1868
W I I I I &gt; Obituary. In the demise of Mrs. Eliza Carroll Dillon, of New York city, we are reminded how fleeting are the hours of human dura-' tion. It seems but yesterday that we were mingling under the sunbeams of her jjoyous, genial nature, which always imparted the glow of cheerfulness to the circle of friends who surrounded her. The subject of the above reflections was 'the mother of Master Kendall Cowes, of 1 jthis city. She came from an old and re-! jspected family, and exerted a wide sphere of influence within her midst. The writer remembers her as a friend an J companion in other and happier days, and records his tribute to that noble attribute of | female loveliness aud virtue she so emil nently possessed. Farewell, daughter of Eve. May the j ! good spirits that guided thy life here on j ' earth, meet aud waft thy soul to the bliss j of Heaven. W. H. H. A Little Romance.—A correspondent J of the Fall River News says that in 1792 i a colored man, by the name of N...
Letter from Sau Jose. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 28 February 1868
Letter from Sau Jose. I am plad to discovor a waking up in favor of The Elevator, and together with others I regret the hitherto apathetic state of the public feeling, which has driven it to its present forlorn condition, j The Elevator is like a dear friend, for whose coming one is accustomed to look forward with feelings of delight, and who being suddenly threatened by death or ; any other calamity, would enlist the warmest sympathy. It is a weakness of human nature to be unappreciative of blessings while we I feel them to be securely ours ; but when ' they have passed beyond our reach their value increases with our regret at their loss. Thus has it been with The Elevator. While it was served regularly, with the births, deaths and marriages duly recorded, we did not trouble ourselves much as to how it or its editor contrived to maintain life. And now the fact actually stares us in the face : the editor has been, and is still, suffering from pecnuiary embarrassments, and The Elevat...

AN ESSAY. From the Portfolio cf the Phceuixonian Institute, Read at the Concert given by the Scholars of the San Jose School, on the sth inst. " 'Ti" bame where e'er the heart is, Wehere e'er its living treasure* dwell." It is love makes home, ant] where there | is uo love it cannot be created. Whereever love dwells most securely, wherever : attection's eyes are brightest, wherever the ears are most ready to hear, and the I hands most willing to perform the offices [of love, there is our home ; aud neither time, or wealth, or circumstance, can alter j it. The first place that claims the name of home is where earthly love first springs! into existence ; for human love, in its or-J igination, is selfish : it is the offspriug of gratitude. We love because we are first loved. Hard indeed are those hearts, and barren of affection's fiowerg, who have not &lt; learned the first lessons of love from pa-[ reutal tenderness—for it is from this foun-j tain that love, beautiful in the g...
For Ttie Elevaiur. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 28 February 1868
For Ttie Elevaiur. fliK. editor: —i reel impelled to say something—the spirit moves me, —and i what had best be said ? is the thing which I puzzles me. This seems to be the age of I talk, and it strikes me there is a great , deal said with but little eflect; hence 1 I have suppressed my desire till n&lt;&gt;w for I fear of a like result. The fact is, Mr. Ed- : itor, I am getting into my dotage—second childhood—and you know children will talk if they can find any one to talk with, and if not they will talk to their playthings ; and since editors are supposed to be right pleasant folks to talk to—if you humor them—l have taken the liberty to address you. I begiu to realize the fact that even old age has its seasons of pleasure ; for now iu the " afternoon of life," with the.experience of a life-day, I look back along the bright flowery avenues of youth upon the morning of life, with all its rollicking, boyish sports, and forget my pains and aches, my dim eyesight and m...
Letter from Nevada Couuty [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 28 February 1868
Letter from Nevada Couuty Mud Hill, Feb. 14, 18(18. Mr. 1 rask tolls me to inform you that ho docs not hold the same sentiments as myself in regard to the use of cold water as a beverage. He thinks water most excellent for mining purposes, but for a drink altogether too cold for him ; consequently our opinions clash on that question, and many are the arguments, pro and con, to be heard here. Mr. Trask and I went out for a walk the other day, and as we were going on the other side of Mud Hill our way was directly through town. Shortly after leaving our place we crossed a rivulet. Mr. Trask advised me to stop and drink, as it was my favorite beverage. Nothing loth, I complied, put my face down to the water and drank right heartily, and on we went. After entering the town we found our way impeded by two of Erin's sons, with outstretched arms and reeling forms, declaring we should not pass, as no " nagur" or Chinaman should pass them. Mr Trask said he would push them oft' the sidewalk, ...
Letter from Virginia City [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 28 February 1868
Letter from Virginia City Mk. Editor : —I am under the impression | that you would be pleased to hear from j our sage brush city, and how we are progressing. We feel that we are living in an enlightened age, and are looking for ward to the day when we shall truly be men, and enjoy all the rights and privileges which other men enjoy ; but, as the adage says, " Justice may sleep, but never dies," and Time, the great producer of changes, ; will bring all things right and just. A circumstance has recently transpired i in this city which calls for united action on our part. Mr. George Cottle is in possession of property which is claimed by , another person. When the case came up i for adjudication, Patrick Lanuian, who | is a constable of this city, was appointed 'Judge. Mr. Jackson, a witness in behalf jof Mr. Cottle, was called upon to give his . testimony in the case. After a lengthy discussion, Mr. Lanman decided that a black man had no right to take an oath against a white man. Bein...
