From the Buffalo Commercial Ailrertlser of May 3d. THE SILENT BORROW OF THE EXFKYNCHISED SLAVE. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 25 August 1865

From the Buffalo Commercial Ailrertlser of May 3d. THE SILENT BORROW OF THE EXFKYNCHISED SLAVE. Suoyesttd by the Obsequies of Fresid nt Linconln. BY JOHN C. LORD. The silent sorrow of the enfranchised slave Has no fit place amid our sad array ; No symbol of these mourning millions wave Among our emblems, as they should, to-day. What tears like theirs, for whom the Martyr bled ? What wail of thronging thousands can compare With their unspoken anguish for the dead, Deep in its silence, dumb in its despair ? No booming cannon vocalize their grief, No long processions, moving sad and slow j No solemn dirges give their souls relief, No gorgeous standards, draped with sighs of woe. Sadly the Freedmen wend from hill and vale, Gath'ring in their rude huts at set of sun, In solemn awe, to hear the appalling tale Of that foiM deed on their Deliverer done. Ah! who can know their untold agony, To whom his death appears the crowning loss? So the Disciples feared on that dread day When the great ...

"Not lost but gone before." Companion of my childhood's early days Thou hast crossed the dark and " silent river." The voice which once was wont to charm our ears With its harmonious melody is hush'd In death. The form on which we loved to gaze Is pulseless now aud still. Thine eyes are cold, Thine ever-cbeering smile is vacant now, And we are left to mourn. Gone in the bloom of womanhood and life ; Gone from fond hearts that loved thee ; from the home Made happy by thy presence—and we weep! We strive to stop the falling tear, to still The tumult of our anguish, for we know Within thy Father's house thou hast found rest. " We know that she is safe on the farther side, Where all the ransomed Mid angels be, Over the river—the mystic river, My childhood's idfll is waiting for me." H.

The Disfranchising Power. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 25 August 1865

The Disfranchising Power. It is repeated day after day, that in urging against the admission of negroes to the franchise, those who urge it are asking President Johnson to set aside the Constitution ; and it is alleged that in leaving this question to the decision of the Southern whites, he is only doing what the letter of the organic law obliges him to do, and that nobody asks him to interfere in the matter except people who deny the constitution all force. We were told last week, by one of the morning papers, that "in President Johnson's opinion, as indicated by his official acts, the Federal Government has no right to prescribe the qualifications of voters in the several States. He regards that as a matter belonging to the States themselves ; and if they are members of the Union (as he believes them to be) they must be allowed to •xercise the rights that belong to them. Very many persons assume that, inasmuch as the doctrine of State sovereignty, as against the Federal Government...

Can tliey Take C'are of Themselves? [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 25 August 1865

Can tliey Take C'are of Themselves? This question as applied to the freed-! men receives some light from statements | recently made by Chaplain James, of our armies in North Carolina. He says there were in Beaufort about three thousand blacks and nearly the same number of whites. Of the former, between three and four hundred were applicants for government aid ; of the latter, from twelve to fourteen hundred. The same statement might be made of Newbern and other places where a comparison could be instituted. In the last mentioned place there was scarcely a trade or a profession in which the negroes are not represented. As to how they were getting along, we copy the following very interesting statements : "In order to obtain some facts upon j which I might estimate the amount of earnings to be #redited to these free and freed people, I posted a handbill at Newbern. requesting such colored people as were not employed by Government, but were pursuing some trade, profession or calling 01...

Old Seventeen Seventy-.i\ to Voiiug Eighteen Sixty-tive. The Boston Journal says : In the 4th of July procession, at Bangor, Maine, were sixty-six soldiers of 1812, about five hundred of the " boys in blue," and a revolutionary soldier of 1770, the venera ble William Hutchings, of Penobscot, aged over one hundred years. The Bangor Whig publishes the following speech made by the old gentleman while sitting in his chair under a portico where part of the exercises of the day took place.— After thanking the audience for his reception, and stating that he was present to gratify others rather than himself—although being there gave him the greatest pleasure—ho said : " At the age of fifteen I enlisted for the defence of my country—and I have stood by her in all her subsequent periods. I have always been in favor of ray country. I was through the battle of Bagaduce. Our shipping on the Penobscot was all destroyed, and our soldiers were obliged to fly through the woods to the Kennebec. My fa...

The Hon. Henry Winter Davi* on Negro Suffrage. I his eloquent and celebrated gentleman was selected as the speaker at the celebration of the Fourth of July, in the city of Chicago, Illinois. It is generally admitted that as an orator and an accomplished scholar and statesman, lie has no I superior in this country. For a long time he represented the Baltimore District in* Congress, and was one of the first of the Southern politicians to throw his inlluenc# on the side of freedom and human progress. On this occasion he spoke in favor of negro suffrage, in the following strong and forcible language, and it will be very , difficult to controvert some of his posi--1 tions: No State Government has ever been ! recognized which ostracised a majority or any great mass of the people. When ! slavery existed slaves were merged into the use of their master. But the right of tho State to ostracise a great masa of free negroes has never been recognized. They were a handful everywhere but in Maryla...
