COMMUNICATIONS. (For 'be Elevator.) Soiree at the Ziou M. E. Church oa tha 24th of August. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 8 September 1865
COMMUNICATIONS. (For 'be Elevator.) Soiree at the Ziou M. E. Church oa tha 24th of August. Mis. Editor : —According to announcement in your journal, the above entertainment came off, and reflected much credit on its conductor, Rev. J. J. Moore, and particularly on the juvenile portion who excelled in giving poems and prose recitations, from various authors, and singing some elegant and popular airs. These entertainments are truly encouraging to the young,and ought to be more so to parents and guardians. While viewing them on the platform, and admiring their efforts, when their innocent souls seemed to be worked up to the meaning of 'their pieces, we, too, felt as if we " would be a | boy again ;" and many who were present felt, no doubt, if they had their "chances" this day, they would be carving out their ! people's history, to be left behind as the triumph of their acknowledgments. Notwithstanding, the way is opening, the work is before us, tin; greater portion of which depends on...

Letter from Detroit [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 8 September 1865
Letter from Detroit Detroit, August 3, 1865. Mr Editor : —1 am still " harping on my daughter." 1 can't let up on New York. Of course there are many things to approve and admire—the public schools of the city are monuments of glory ; but to my eye the children looked small, lean and yellow ; possibly a strong, vigorous race may spring from these attenuated looking children, but I don't believe it. In the avenues up town, where wealth resides, the children looked healthy but delicate, and very few boys in sight—boys are such wild, romping creatures,possibly they have gone out of fashion. The young ladies in those districts looked intelligent and refined, but very delicate. Looking at them reminded me of a yoiftig Englishman who said he was affraid to waltz with the young ladies of America, because he feared they would break down, and he might be hanged for murder. Mr Jefferson, I think it was, said he hoped there would never be any very large cities in America, because he believed th...
