Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 18 August 1865

Recent dates from Victoria give encouraging accounts of mining prospects in the upper country. Parties on the Stickeen river are making from $8 to $12 per day, each man. Provisions are plenty. In Cariboo a new quartz ledge has been discovered, which promises well. At the j Hank Assay Office, in Cariboo, the ledge ' was found to contain $168 to the ton. The j Sentinel publishes a statement showing the I product on the mines of Cariboo during the two months ending 29th July, 1864, to be $575,496, and during the corresponding months this year, $950,648, showing an increase of nearly one hundred por cent. Rich Church.—Triuity Church, New York, owns a large portion of the lower part of that city. The lots number 661, and were all leased before the revolution. They are all covered by buildings, and as the leases will expire in a few years, and revert to the church, with the buildings, it is estimated that the property of Trinity will then be worth more than $25,000,000.

TELEGRAPHIC SUMMARY. A serious difficulty occurrcd at a picnic at Rocky Springs, Hudson county, Tennessee, on the Bth inst., between re turned Union and Confederate soldiers, resulting in the death of three of the number, and seriously wounding 7 others. The Tribune's Washington says the Mayor and magistrates of Alexandria, Va., bodily declare their determination to adhere to the old State laws, and say that iooner than receive the testimony of a negro in their courts, they will resign their respective offices. New York, July 25th. —The 2oth New York regiment, which was removed a few days since to Morris Island, South Carolina, for taking part in the disturbances in this city, have exhibited a muti nous spirit since their removal. The municipal election at Federickburg resulted in the entire success of one of the most hitter and tyrannical secessionists. The elections in Virginia afford little encouragement to hope for an early settlement of the difficulties which the suppression of...

The Result of the Union State Convention. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 25 August 1865

The Result of the Union State Convention. The Union party of this State has completely stultified itself—sold its prestige, its chance of success, its brilliant hopes, its bright prospects, its opportunity to save the country from the blighting effects «.f Democratic rule, for a mess of that ■ miserable political porridge called popula- j rity. It must be now evident to all that the J Union party, which once made California | a synonym for loyalty and integrity, is dismembered, split into a thousand frag-j inents, and the discordant elements so divided tliat we fear they never again can! be united. It matters not now whether; the disruption was caused by the interfe-1 j rence of Senator Conness, or by the radicalism of the Flay. Suffice it to say thr' j I the Union party is no longer a power in the State. After the disgraceful exhibitions of the past few weeks, and the weak, unstable platform erected by the late (and last, we hope, of that hind of workmanship) great Union Convention...

Meeting for the Freedmen. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 25 August 1865

Meeting for the Freedmen. i We attended this meeting on Monday ! evening at Piatt's Hall. J. McM. Shafter ! presided. After a fervent prayer by Rev. j Mr. Wallace, of Placerville, and a few in- j troductory remarks by the Chairman, Rev. j Dr. Peck made the opening speech; he! was followed by Rev. Dr. Brown. We have no room to refer to Dr. Brown's j speech as we intended, it was, however, a plea for aid for the freedmen. We thought | the reverend gentlemen leaned somewhat to colonization, but on the whole, his speech was very appropriate. Rev. Dr. Scudder made the concluding speech, in which he took strong grounds for the suffrage rights of the freedmen. Over five hundred dollars was subscribed to aid the Freedmen's Missionary enterprise. We uotice an article in the Call of Thurs- j day morning, disparaging the efl'ort. With j its usual falsity, it says money is begged in California to " support men who are on a fruitful soil and able to work." We be-! lieve the Call wilfully and kno...

The New York Fair for the Benefit of the Sick and Wounded Colored Soldiers and Freedmen. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 25 August 1865

The New York Fair for the Benefit of the Sick and Wounded Colored Soldiers and Freedmen. , The ladies of the Union Bazaar Associa-I tion opened their Annual Fair for the above laudable objects, in Mozart Hall, on the 15th of May, and continued about two weeks. In the last Atiglo African received we find the report of the Treasurer, Madam Clorice E. Reason, of which we give an abstract. The total amount received from members, lectures by Frederick Douglass, John M. Langstone, llev. 11. 11. Garnett and J.. Sella Martin, donations, proceeds of Fair, etc $2908 53 Total amount of expenses was 1672 44 Leaving a balance of $123(5 Oi) When we contrast this with the Fair i recently given by the ladies of San Francisco, we think the balance is in our favor. The ladies of New York had an efficient committee, including officers of forty members—with nearly all of whom we arc personally acquainted—and more liberal, intelligent, capable and enterprising women the world does not produce.

Personal. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 25 August 1865

Personal. Wo received last week a letter from j Wm. G. Hamilton, son of our. late be-1 , loved friend, Thomas Hamilton, of the j j Anglo African. He says : " Eyes other; 1 than those for which you penned your | good natured letter, arc now scanning its| | pages. 1 know that were mv father living, | his countenance would illumine after reading the first few lines." Alas, " what shadows we are and what shadows we pursue." How sad, and yet how strange. A few years ago, comparatively, Tom Hamilton was a boy in our, i office, when we published the Colored American; fewer still, when we left New York, not six years gone, the young gentleman who now writes us was just such a bright, promising lad as was his father jin 1837 ; and his young manhood gives ' truthfulness to the promise of his younger ! days. We '"have fallen in the sere and yellow i leaf; " but we think we have that "which ! should accompany old age : honor, love I and troops of friends," and few more loved j by us than the Ha...

COMMUNICATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 25 August 1865

COMMUNICATIONS. [For the Elevator.] Mr. Pixley's Speech again. Mr. Editor :— We now come to the indictment. What is it ? That the Negro is an inferior being. We plead not guilty. Superiority of races is comparative, not relative. Races are not to be judged by what they have done, but by what they are capable of doing, or by what tTiey have dune under like circumstances with other races. True, the Caucasian race can out number us as one hundred to one in every field of progress ; but the numerical proportion of the races throughout Christendom is about that ratio, and their advantages at least a thousand times greater, besides centuries of culture. It will not do to compare the Negro with the Englishman, Frenchman, American, or other refined and highly cultivated nations. A comparison with the serfs of Russia would be more analogous. llow do those races compare ? Of the social condition of the serfs but little is known. Until recently nothing comparatively was known of their status, ...
