[From the Anglo African.] The Broken Hearts. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 15 September 1865
[From the Anglo African.] The Broken Hearts. 0, daughter fair, with raven hair, That left thy father's home, To roam the world all free from care Thy wish will be to thy father come. Through all the weary days and nights, Thy mother watched with tender care, : Thj budding beauty rare and bright, So radiant and so fair. And now, slaa, thy mother sees thee std, Thy gentle eyes have spoken, Thy mother fain would mike thee glad, But thy father's heart is broken. Tn vain thy choice was rashly made. He whom thv heart held dear Has on thy father burdens laid, Tis more than he can bear. Thy father mourns thy weary lot, His heart for thee is sad ; Earth knows for him no happy spot, No home thy love makes glad. When life grows darksome round thy way, ; When all the world forsake, Thy mother in that saddest day Thee to her heart will take.

Reconstruction from an Eu;lisli Liberal Point of View. ! [From 'he London Spec'ator.J 1' R I V I 1. E &lt;5 E S IN AMERICA. Democracy in America, it is becoming evident, has to pass through more trial. It has come victorious out of a war which would have crushed any European monoarchy except the British, and has j overcome a rebellion over which even j ; Great. Britain might possibly have sue j i cumbed. It has secured by four years of j desperate effort, during which it has had to discover the men who can organize force as well as to develope the force itself, the control of a continent and the 1 emancipation of a race, and now it has to accomplish a feat greater even than these. Our American friends will listen j with annoyed incredulity when we describe the task yet remaining to be performed ; but it is none the less one which will test their trusted system far more I than the struggle which they have won. : That was a question of force, and even ! tories like Sir Archiba...
Kmuucipatioii in Cuba. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 15 September 1865
Kmuucipatioii in Cuba. Colonel Francis Montaos, of Havana, has proposed a plan for the extinction of slavery in Cuba and Porto Rico, which, through his personal influence and his official position, is likely to command much attention. Colonel Montaos is commandantc of the prisons in the island,and | is also private secretary to the CaptainGoneral, to whom he has submitted the 1 plan which, with his permission, we now lay before the public : " The important matter of the extinction of slavery in this island keeps the mind of everybody in the greatest anxiety. Kvery one feels that the hour is eome to strike that great blow which the progress ; of ideas and the pressure of events make already indispensable. " It is an idea which lies in the con science of all, yet before the realization of which those most zealously interested in it are apprehensive, in view of the difii culties that ;;11 violent transitions affecting social interests offer in their execution. "Every project suggested ...

The Livingstone Institute. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 15 September 1865
The Livingstone Institute. The advertised meeting of the Livingstone Institute was held on Wednesday evening, 13th instant, in M. E. Church, Stockton street.— The President of the Board of Trustees, E. Johnson, Esq., made a statement of the financial condition of the Institute which was perfectly satisfactory. Ilev. J. W. Briar gave a history of the Institute from its commencement; he said it was not a joint stock company nor was it ever intended as such ; (although the certificates read as follows, "Mr. A. B. having paid dollars into the treasury of the Livingstone Institute is constituted a Stockholder, etc.,") the money paid in was donated for a certain enterprise, and cannot be diverted from that object, nor returned to the donors. There is no organization or body except the Trustees, and the donors were only allowed a voice by privilege. A motion was passed requesting the Trustees to continue operations by appealing for donations and subscriptions. A motion was offered that the...
RECONSTRUCTION [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 15 September 1865
RECONSTRUCTION This is the most important subject which now engages the attention of the American ( i people, fur on it depends the future welfare of the nation, and the destinies of a racc but partially redeemed from bondage. It is a question which absorbs the minds of all reflecting men, and all energies, all thoughts are now directed to that point. I N'ot only in America, but in Europe, also, dues this subject attract marked attention, as it involves other momentous subjects of civil, political and philanthropic importance, as well as the theory of republican or representative government. The whole subject seems to revolve itself into this : Have the rebel States ever lost or renounced their position as mem-; Iters of the Union ? If they have not, as' President Johnson avers, why treat them as territories or subjugated provinces, by j appointing officers which it is the perogative of the State to elect ? Why prescribe rules and regulations for their government, when they have the...
The First of August. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 15 September 1865
The First of August. This day, the time honored Anniversary ' of the Birtli of West India Emancipation, j was celebrated in the Eastern States with great unanimity. There were no bicker-; ings or jealousies, no West Indian faction or American party, but all parties joined to hail with jov the coming of the anniversary of that glorious day, when, by act of the Ib'itish Parliament, 800,000 slaves were declared free. There were two celebrations got up in, New York and vicinity—one secular and ' one religious. They were not in opposi- j tion to each other, but to accommodate j all classes. They were bothlield in Brook-' lyn—the religious celebration took place at Leflert's Park, and consisted of devo-! tional exercises, and an oration by Rev. Dr. Pennington. That dismissed at an I early hour to give those who wished an opportunity to attend the other, which j j was at Myrtle Avenue Park, an extensive enclosure which will accommodate 20,000 I persons. This celebration was one of pleasure...
Idaho Territory Papers. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 15 September 1865
Idaho Territory Papers. Idaho Oitv (nee Bannock City) rejoices iu a hebdomadal publication with the pretentious name of the Idaho World,of which Brown &amp; Co. are publishers, and 11. C. Street, editor. It is about as large as— any piece of p#per of its size, aud we judge is of the Copperhead persuasion, for it says the Union party of Boise county is "like Woolsey, it has fallen like a bright exhalation of the evening, to rise not again." It also contains a letter from a correspondent who signs himself P. J. Malone, suggesting a testimonial to the traitor John Mitchell. Malone says Mitchell has " spent the best part of his life in the service of a great principle." That's enough for Malone. We are indebted to a friend for a copy of the above named paper, who also sends us a number of the Tri-Weekly Statesman, published in Boise City, Idaho Territory. It is quite a different concern from the former. It is superior in its editorial management, as well as in its mechanical exe...
Photograph of Lincoln's Statue [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 15 September 1865
Photograph of Lincoln's Statue Signor M'zzara who made the statue o(' Abraham Lincoln which was on exhibition at the Mechanics Industrial Fair, has sent us a photograph copy thereof. It is beautifully executed, and conveys a just conception of the work itself, which is a 'high specimen of art, and reflects great credit on Signor Mezzara. The statue represents a figure of collossal size being eight feet in height, and together with , the pedastal on which it stands about 'twenty feet. It represented the Great . Emancipator crushing the serpent of rebellion beneath his heel, at his feet are the broken chains of slavery, his right hand is over the Constitution of which he was the protector, preserver and interpre- ! tor, while in his left hand he holds forth the Proclamation which decreed Emancipation to millions of his fellow men and made them citizens. The picture is for sale by Signor Mezzara at No. 319 Jackson street. Price $2 50. We will receive orders at this office.

Personal Correspondence. Through the kindness of Mr. Fiirrell,| who arrived a few weeks ago, wo received I a letter from our beloved friend and more' than brother, Dr. James McCtine Smith.!

The Invitation Accepted. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 15 September 1865
The Invitation Accepted. Shortly after the commencement of the j war, a Southern paper contained the following poetic gem. We suppose the writer at that time thought it very witty, a choice morceau for the abolitionists. We do not recollect what paper it was in, nor do we think we have the whole of it, as we transcribe it from memory : " Come, Mr. Greely, come to the South, The land you have lied and re-lied on, You can lower you chin and open your mouth, When your neck strains the rope you're tied on! " Bring old Granny Giddings, blustering Ilale, Fred Douglass and Henry Ward Beecher, And nigger-thief Hyatt, from Washington jail, And Sumner, the Devil's own preacher. " Come! bring all your friends, —never despair, Thou chief of the Devil's apostles; Our hemp will assist you in walking the air And make a display of big tassels." The invitation was accepted, aud much sooner than they expected. They have all been "to the South," except that glorious old chieftain, Joshua R. Giddings, ...
COMMUNICATIONS. Recollections of the Underground Railroad. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 15 September 1865
COMMUNICATIONS. Recollections of the Underground Railroad. Perhaps it is well for us 1o state that long previous to any organized plan of operations, the good work of succoring fugitives from slavery was prosecuted to a considerable extent, and under very unfavorable circumstances. All Smith of "Mason and Dixon's line" was guarded with a vigilance that would have reflected credit, on the "Army of the Potomac," and to escape was considered a heroic feat. I p to 1838 there was but little accomplished, and that little under circumstances the most trying. Oh, God ! how my thoughts revert back to those gloomy days ; myself a poor slave boy, with no hope of successful flight, nor indications of an early death. Now and then 1 would meet a panting brother or flying sister, guided by that only "chart" for the trusting fugitive, the North Star, winding their way to liberty or death—but remembering the "spot in the sun," which early instruction had impressed upon me, was the sure sign of God's...

Public Meeting in Sail Joae. The colored citizens of San Jose met on Mouday evening, September 4th, according to resolution of adjournment, Aug. 28. The Chairman not being present, r. W. Cassey was elected as Chairman pro ten)., who called the meeting to order. The first business being the consideration of the minutes of the preceding meeting, the Chairman called upon the Secretary, Wm. A. Smith, to read them. The Secretary had no record of the business, but finally read an imperfect report, as made by him to The Eeevator. After some discussion they were adopted—the Chairman, however, making protest, as an individual, against the use made of his name in the report, as not warranted by facts, aud made for political effect. An irregular discussion followed in regard to the delegate elected August 28th, Mr. C. 11. Mercier. It being urged against the nominee that he was not the oldest resident of San Jose, that the ladies assisted in the election, etc., Mr. Mercier made a few remarks, s...

Its advertising columns are well filled, and the paper appears to be doing a thriving business. There is, however, one feature in the Anglo which we do not like, viz : soldiers and others advertising for female c...

Item* from (lie Anglo African. Freedmex Coming North.—A few citi- | /.cns of Providence lately sent an agent to Virginia for the purpose of procuring help, l'lie agent returned on Saturday, via the Shore Line, with about forty contrabands, fifteen of whom are females. They are | strong, and anxious to prove that they can do more work as free men and women than as slaves. They believe that they can work as well when receiving wages as when they only had their board and clothes. \\ e wish we had some of them out here, there is an increased demand for good colored servants.—Ed. 151. Within the past two years the colored people of Alexandria, Ya„ have built over a thousand dwelling houses, costing from $300 to $1,000 each, and three churches, and have invested over $5,000 in ground rents.
