Speaker Colfax iu Victoria. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 1 September 1865
Speaker Colfax iu Victoria. We copy the following from the Daily | Chronicle of the 29th July. If Mr. Col- ! fax's remarks are correctly reported, he I is in favor of universal suffrage : A committee on behalf of the colored j residents of Victoria, consisting of A. 11. Francis and M, W. Gibbs, called on the | Hon. S. Colfax yesterday morning, and |on being introduced by the American Consul, proceeded to say that they were happy to meet him and tender, on behalf ; of the colored residents of Victoria, their i esteem and regard.

A Railroad Romance. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 1 September 1865
A Railroad Romance. The Nashville Union vouches for the truth of the following story. One morning in May the train for Louisville bore an unwonted number of elegant women and nicely dressed men, the latter including a large sprinkling of Uncle Gain's pets with shoulder straps. On one of the seats was a married lady, in fine health, with sparkling eyes and vivacious spirits. She was accompanied by a little daughter and a colored "lady" with the baby. Behind the lady sat a young lieutenant dressed to kill, and anxious for a love adventure, lie scraped acquaintance with the lady by attentions to her children, and soon they were on very pleasant terms. The lieutenant felt that lie had made an impression, and showed it by his actions, while the !ady was apparently pleased with her casual acquaintance. Soon matters reached a climax, which is thus told: " By and by the train approached the tunnel at Muldrough Hill. The gay and festive lieutenant leaned over and whispered in the lady's ear....
Gov. lioutwell on Reconstruction [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 1 September 1865
Gov. lioutwell on Reconstruction Hon. George S. Boutwell, ex-Governor of Massachusetts, was recently invited to address the citizens of Boston on the subject of "Reconstruction." Mr. Boutwell was the last Democratic Governor of the Old Bay State, and was of the Ben Butler school. His opinions at this time on this subject are worthy of note. We give a few extracts, and regret that our space will not allow us to give more. After his S exordium, he said : " Before proceeding, I wish to state my views of the policy now pursued by the administration in reference to the great J subject of reconstruction, because it i* quite likely there may be some present who will draw inferences from what I shall oft'r. If I understand President Johnson, he does not object to negro suffrage. It is, however, his desire that the . right should he extended to the negroes of ; the once existing eleven States, recently in rebellion, by the white people of those States, who were authorized to vote when I the ...
Itcius i i i>m tiie Anglo African. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 1 September 1865
Itcius i i i&gt;m tiie Anglo African. We regret to announce that the health of our kind l'riend Dr. Rock, of Boston, is much impaired ; so much so, indeed, as to compel him to relinquish all business. He has been sojourning in the south V)f New \ork for a little while; but has now, after giving us a call, returned to Boston, lie appears almost hopeless of regaining his health, and is perfectly resigned to the will ot God, having no fear of death, Ihe friends of freedom everywhere will pray for his recovery. We are also sorry to hear of the ill health of Dr. Rock. He is a useful man, who, by his intellectual ability and untiriug industry, has mastered and acquired eminence and position in two professions, Law and Medicine, and he is a young man yet, or just in his prime. We sincerely hope he will be long spared to continue his usefulness. The numerous friends of tne Rev. Alexander Crummell will be pleased to know that he has just arrived and is in good health. We arc of that ...

THE CONVENTION. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 1 September 1865
THE CONVENTION. We think wo have informer articles on | this subject clearly demonstrated the no- ! cessity of holding a Convention at this time, and the important bearing it will have on our political condition in this | State. We have also stated in brief what i we consider would be legitimate subjects for their consideration. We do not assume to lay out work for the Convention, nor to erect a platform, but we merely present a basis of action, which our experience enti-j ties us to, and which, from our position, is probably expected of us. We have had considerable experience in the business i, and workings of Conventions, —having been connected, directly or indirectly,' with all the National Conventions of colored people from 1831 to 1S»»0, and with all the New York Conventions up to that time. Other subjects than those to which we! have heretofore referred will doubtless come before the Convention, and it will be well if delegates will come prepared with something practical tolay...
THE LIVINGSTONE INSTITUTE. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 1 September 1865
THE LIVINGSTONE INSTITUTE. The meeting of the Livingstone Institute j will take place Wednesday, 13th instant, t We have heretofore given our views as i regards the disposition of the funds be-.; longing to that organization, but as no f such disposition can be made without an &lt; alteration of the constitution, we earnestly]* request Stockholders who coincide with us i to be present at the meeting, or else an- &lt; thorite us to act for them. It is not likely the original design of 1 the Institute, to establish a College' in 1 San Francisco, will ever be carried into 1 effect. At the organization of the Liv- j ingstonc Institute, in January, 1861, we condemned the contemplated location, and we have seen no cause to change our opinion since. Some of the Stockholders ! are in favor of disbanding the organization and returning the money. To this we object, unless it is found to be impossible to carry out the primary objects of the Institute, which was to establish an ...
The Mechanics' Fair. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 1 September 1865
The Mechanics' Fair. We have visited this Fair several | times, and have seen much to convince us, that the Mechanic Arts have made as great progress here as in older communities. In one branch, particularly, this country is probably in advance of all others. Quartz mining has necessitated inventions which would never be dreamed of elsewhere, because never required. The various machines for the purpose of crushing, roasting, amalgamating and separating quartz, show what progress is making in that branch of industry. The variety of machines, inventions and improvements in other branches of the Mechanic Arts, are alike interesting and instructive. A novel feature in the Fair is the New England Kitchen. It is a novelty to Oalifornians and the present generation. The large fireplace, with side ovens sad irons, crane and trammells, or pot-hooks, reminded u« of the farm houses around New York some forty or fifty years ago, before the introduction of cival for general use, and the inventio...
LINES [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 1 September 1865
LINES DEDICATED TO J. MADISON BELL. To thee, the Author of " The Day," " The War," anJ all that may belong To that inspiring, earnest lay, I dedicate a simple song! For in the rythm of that line, And in the measure and refrain, My listening ear could but divine The power beneath the flowing strain, — And in the reading then I heard A something I had failed to find, That in my spirit deeply stirred A broader love for human-kind. Ah, Poet, by that noble song, For man's redemption wholly planned, j Thy name and gift with those belong Who sing the glories of our land ! In smoother and grand heroic strains Most earnestly thy notes have rung, As if a " people from their chains " By thee, and thee alone, were sung! As if the singing was for thee ! For thee alone the chains to rend ! To hail that Sun of Liberty, Whose rays in morning beams desccnd, To sing, as if thy harp, alone, This wrong of ages must atone— As if no other birds but thee Had caroled from that Blessed Tree! Dr. Thomas' Lec...
COMMUNICATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 1 September 1865
COMMUNICATIONS. (For the Elevator.l Convention—Universal Suffrage. Mr. Editor :—After due deliberation on any subject, it is far better to take a particular side, always avoiding the middle. It is never too early to begin a good purpose, and particularly such an oik; as is presumed by all thinking minds the coming Convention is intended to effect. Yet it is alarming to see some of those who exists under the same political disadvantages are arrayed in diametrical opposition to the step about to be taken for the interest of their kindred. Can it be too early to ask for justice? Must it be understood that our people are to wait without asking, until the spirit moves the gods to give f No. It is time to hammer at the portals of the "powers that be," and if we fail this ! time also, never cease, but continue until, if you are called away before the realization of your labor, it cannot be said you have remained silent and indifferent to the injustice to your race. Hut among the "opposers"...

Peneton was appointed Chairman, and J. R. Starkey, Secretary. The Chairman stated the object of the meeting, in a short address appropriate to I the occasion. ! Mr. P. A.

We therefore feel called upon to express our sympathy for thr&gt; sufferers...
