Colored Laborers for the Pacific Coast. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 22 September 1865

Colored Laborers for the Pacific Coast. Our article on the Pacific Railroad, in The Ki.ktator of .July 21st, has 1 (eon copied into the San Jose Mercury, in which [ journal it will attract more attention than in our obscure paper. We hope contractors and managers of that work will see the importance of em- ! ploying the freedmen on that road in pre- 1 ference to Chinamen. It is said the reason why the latter are employed is in consequence of the scarcity of white laborers.' If that is the case, it is a good reason for employing colored men ; they can perform double the work of Chinamen, and are accustomed to that kind of labor. If the different companies should combine, they might bring out a sufficient number of hardy laborers to build the road in the | contemplated five years. They might be l settled on alternate sections of land along the road, which could be cultivated by the non-laboring portion of their families. The Government owes land to the soldiers, and others could obtai...

Church Exhibition. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 22 September 1865

Church Exhibition. The recent performances iu churches, | under the name of "Exhibition," Mental Soirees," etc,, have introduced a practice which has a tendency to make the temples iof religious wogship less sacred than they should be, and more places of amusement than devotion. As long as they were were confined to Sacred Concerts, School j Exhibitions and exercises of a moral and religious character we did not object, but when they degenerate into theatrical performances and entertainments wholly of 1 of a secular character, we must enter our : protest against them. We were fearful by the patronage they | received, and from the countenance given them by the professedly religious portion of the community, that they would become so remunerative and popular as to finally sink into dramatic performances which they have ; hence we condemn all such exhibitions in churches. It is time they should be stopped when j they are got up under the supervision of j ministers of the Gospel, and re...

Our Loyal Blacks. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 22 September 1865

Our Loyal Blacks. We fmd the following in the Boston Commonwealth, and as it seems so very applicable to our case just now, we transfer it to oub columns. Whether pur friends will take the hint and determine to act in unison for our general good, or suffer themselves to be awed by folly and ribaldry, or divided by misrepresentations, is yet to be tested. But, for ourselves, we j believe as heretofore, when the time comes j for action they will be found a unit: " The conventions of people, recently held at Trenton, Philadelphia, and Alexandria, for the purpose of demanding a restitution to them of the inalienable right of suffrage, were not a whit behind j those of their white brethren in point of I numbers, intelligence, gravity ami weight lof character. The resolutions adopted in each case are terfse, vigorous, and cover . the whole ground. They breathe a faith in a final early success that is truly refreshing. They evidently see their oppor--1 tunity and are resolved to embrace it...

COMMUNICATIONS. Recollection.? of the Underground Railroad. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 22 September 1865

COMMUNICATIONS. Recollection.? of the Underground Railroad. NUMBER TWO. We had also agencies and stations at Baltimore—Jacob IJ. Gibbs and our lamented friend, Darius Stokes. At Alexandria we had a host of true friends. Now for the mod lis operandi: .The Central Lodge Taeing at Washington city all communications were directed there, and at a given signal the "Pilgrims" came. Hayricks, stables, kitchens, cellars (and onone occasion a cess-poll),were brought into requisition as places of concealment until the scouts had been out and returned, when all being quiet, a little band was started for the "promised land." The solemn obligation was " Liberty or Death," and not unfrequently the latter was attained. Our faithful operator would notify the " Craft," and all things being well, seventy-two hours would place them beyohd danger. Of course it would seem almost incredible that we should have traitors in our I camp, but such was the fact ; and just ; here we may as well mention a few of ...

Lecture. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 22 September 1865

Lecture. Rev. John »T. Moore delivered a lecture on Thursday evening, the 14th instant, in j Zion M. E. Church, Stockton street, for the benefit of Mrs. Lee, widow of Herman II Lee, who was lost on the steamer Brother j Jonatan. The subject of the lecture was I "The Rights of the Colored Man in the : United States, as a Man, a Citizen, a Race i and a Christian," Mr. Moore justly denounced the process of reconstruction, as commenced by President Johnson ; the impolicy of appointing half-repentant rebels to office, and granting- pardon to reorganize the State to traitors, under the "Amnesty Proclamation." He also saterized in scorching terms the vacilating policy of the Union party, and the time-serving, truckling course of home politicians. We think his animadversions on the American Flag were too severe. That paper is consistent—it lias not abandoned its position on Negro Suffrage, and is as true on that subject as ever. '1 he lecture was well attended, and realized the sum of $56 4...

TELECRAPHIC SUMMARY. New York Sept. 12. —The latest advices from Hajti state that though the revolutionists have held out longer than was expected, they must submit.

The President has now decided te take active measures, and bring matters to a close, jeffrard is n<jw at this point, and will return to Hayti as soon as matters are completed. Scotch agents now here have secured a large tract of land in Virginia, where a colony of Scotch emigrants will settle in November or December.
