From Putnam's Monthly. THE MYSTERY OF TIIE GIEDED CAMEO. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 20 March 1868

From Putnam's Monthly. THE MYSTERY OF TIIE GIEDED CAMEO. [concluded. J What could I think of it all ? Was it but a more dream, a trick of my imagin ation, or Lad I actually seen Leila her self ? Whatever it might be, I cou'd not but feel the conviction that she was false to me, and I determined that I would not ; longer visit her. I would depart from Florence at once, at;d tear her image from my mind. It must be done before long ; ; therefore, why not now ? And when she i fouud that I did not come, she would un derstand that her treachery had been dis i covered. There could surely be no ex planation needed. So I passed the morning forming desperate resolutions, which were all destined to come to nothing. For of what use is it to resolve, when we are in the hands of fate? And, by the afternoon, new ideas came and changed my programme. 1 determined that I would see her once again, but that it should be for the simple purpose of charging her with her falsity, and throwing back her pret...

Ciuod Listeners. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 20 March 1868

Ciuod Listeners. Good listeners arc scarce—almost as scarce as good talkers. A good listener |is no egotist, has but a moderate opinion Jot himself, is possessed of a great desire tor information upon all kinds of subjects, and ot a hundred other fine qualities. It I is too much the general impression that : listening is merely a negative proceeding, but such is very far from being really the case. A perfectly inert person is not a good listener any more thap a bolster is. You require the recipient of your talk to manifest intelligence, to show interest, and, what is more, to feel it. The fact is, that to listen well—as to do anything else well—is not easy. It is not easy even to seem to listen well, as we observe notably in the conduct of bad actors and stage amateurs, who break down in this particular perhaps more often and more completely than in any other ; you will see one of Xhern listening—or rather not listening—to the most thiilling statements without being in the slightest...

Tlie Thimble. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 20 March 1868

Tlie Thimble. The name of this little instrument is said to have been derived from 44 thumbbell," being at first thumble, and afterward thimble. It is of Dutch invention, and was brought to England about the year IGOS, by John Lofting, who commenced its manufacture at Is ington, near London, and pursued it with great profit and success. Formerly iion and brass were used, but latterly steel, silver and gold have taken their places. In the ordinary manufacture, thin plates of metal are introduced into a die, and then punched iuto shape. In Paris gold thimbles are manufactured to a large extent. Thin sheets of sheet-iron are cut into discs of about two inches diameter. These being heated red hot, are struck with a punch into a number of holes, gradually increasing in depth to give them the proper shape. The thimble is then trimmed, polished, and indented around its outer surface with a number of little holes, by means of a small wheel. It is then converted into steel by the cementation...

BENEVOLENT ASSOCIATIONS. Rev. John J. Moore delivered an address before the Missionary Sons and Daughters of Clinton, 011 Monday evening, in Zion A. M. E. Church. The Young Men's Beneficial Society and other Associations wore present l>y invitation. Mr. Moore took the above subject as the ( theme of his discourse, and made many | pointed applications to our present condition. The address was marked with the I usual eloquence of the reverend gentle- ; man, as well as his peculiarities. His exordium was filled with historical references, showing his ability as a historian, but it was wholly irrevalent to the subject under consideration and too lengthy. The subject matter of his discourse was ably handled, and deserves high commendation. lie showed the importance of associated effort, and the beneficial results of union. lie also alluded to the ne cessity of organization for religious as well as secular purposes, and paid a high and deserved compliment to the M.

Criticisms on Mr. Gilliard's Lecture. From the Stockton Independent, April 4, 1867 "Professor Gilliard's Lectork.—Tlie lecturc delivered at the City Hall, last evening, on 'the Moral, Civil and Political Status of the Colored Race in the United States,' as an intellectual effort will bear a very favorable comparison with the productions of nineteen-twetieths of our professional public speakers. Full of historic research, logical in argument, forcible in expression, and well arranged. It was a discourse which would bo no discredit to any lecturer in the country, and should have been listened to by a greater num- | ber than were present. He has a pleasing style of delivery, speaks his words with remarkable distinctness, and has capital command of language. We do not j think there was the least exaggeration in the compliments paid to his lecture on the same subject by the press of San Francisco and San Jose, and should he see fit to deliver it again in this city, he doubtless would dra...

Appeal of the Friends cf the Pioneer Minister of the African Methodist Episcopal Church.
