Sheridan's Hide. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 29 September 1865

Sheridan's Hide. Up from the South at break of day, Bringing to W inchtster fresh dismay, The affrighted air with a shudder bore, Like a herald in haite, to the chieftain's door, The terrible grumble, and rumble, and roar, Telling the battle was on once more, And Sheridan twenty miles away. And wilder still those billows of war Thundered along the horizon's bar, And louder yet into Winchester rolled The roar of that red sea uncontrolled. Making the blood of the listener cold As he thought of the (take in that fiery fray, And Sheridan twenty miles away. But there is a road from Winchester town, A good,i)road highway leading down ; And there, through the flash of the morning light A steed as black as the steeds of night, Was seen to pass as with eagle flight— As if he new the terrible need He stretched away with his utmost speed ; Hill rose and fell, but his heart was gay, With Sheridan fifteen milles away. Still sprung from those swift hoofs thundering south, The dust, lit e the smek...

The Renovation of the South. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 29 September 1865

The Renovation of the South. Cognate to the obligation on the part of the government and the liberal mind of the people of the North to secure popular instruction to the people of the South, of all colors and conditions, is the still more imperative duty to provide a way by which they may become possessed of land. It is well known that all the land opened to cultivation and adjacent to the lines of tralic is in the hauds of the slaveocracy, with rare exceptions. The poor whites have for long years occupied the poorest lands, and in some parts the sandhills, eking out a miserable existence on a little corn, pork and whisky. Now, the war Las ruined the old landed aristocracy,: except in those instances where the fore- j sight of the planter will lead him to use Ins influence over his former slaves to induce them to work for low wages, which will probably be the case quite generally on the back plantations; and the result will be that the negro will have no homej of his own, unless he ...

Election of Delegates to the Convention. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 29 September 1865

Election of Delegates to the Convention. The meeting for this purpose takes place this evening in the Vestry of A. M. E. Church, Powell street. We hope there will be a full attendance, as it is important that we should have a full representation at the Convention, and that our best men should be elected as delegates. We hope there will be no "apple of discord" thrown in to divert the action of the meeting from its legitimate purpose. Let differences of opinion as regards men be thrown aside for the successful carrying out of measures. Select none but those who will consistently and conscientiously act for the benefit of the cause. Select no man for his personal popularity, for his ability, or his influence alone. Let the i only questions be, "is he capable, is he I honest ?" and let all minor differences j sink in these important points. The Complimentary Testimonial to J. Madison Bell is unavoidably postponed until Tuesday evening, the 10th of October. ITA communication from Wm. N....

THE CONVENTION [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 29 September 1865

THE CONVENTION We arc daily convinced of the importance of holding a Convention of the colored citizens of California at this time. Our brethren of the Eastern States are moving on tlie subject of their political rights,and I it also behooves us to move in the same [direction. We only regret now that the [tall was not for the whole Pacific coast to meet in Convention. We have a common interest in whatever concerns the welfare of our people in this country, and by mutual consultation and action great good might be effected for our entire race, as well as awakening the minds of the "governing classes" to a sense of their duty as regards ns, and the welfare of the whole country. We are greatly misunderstood by the whites. We are either overrated or underrated. If a colored man commits a crime lie is pointed out as an example of his race, and all have to bear the penalty of his offence. If a colored man evinces any degree of smartness in any business or profession, he is looked upon as ...

PERSONAL. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 29 September 1865

PERSONAL. We have refrained from noticing the | false and malicious attacks made on us personally, by certain supposed anonymous parties in San Jose, and we would not now notice them, only by the earnest advice of our friends, who think some might construe our silence iuto an ac-j knowlcdgment of tin truthfulness of their statements Wo say "supposed anonymous parties in San Jose." We should say known parties from San .lose, for we know them both. One ("Santa Clara") was only a visitor there, and the other! ("Plaquemine") is but a recent dweller inj the "beautiful valley." As regards our interference in the affairs of Santa Clara county: The meeting for the election of delegates was held 28th of August, at which Mr. Charles H. Mer-' cier was elected. On the 30th, the secretary, Mr. Wm. A. Smith, sent us the proceedings of the meeting for publication in ; The Elevator, together with a private note, inquiring of us if it was not necessary that they should appoint a full delegation (San...

OUR PAPER. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 29 September 1865

OUR PAPER. The present number c'oses the first half year of The Elevator, and with it our arrangements with the Executive Committee. We presume we will continue in our position as editor, as the Committee have not| expressed any desire for a change, and we believe they arc satisfied with our conditions, if not with our editorial manage-! ineut—but as we never expected to please | everybody in all things, we guess we have succeeded as well as could be expected.— The Committee well knew our faults before they engaged us as editor, and if they have found us self-willed, and impracticable of "control," we don't believe they have been disappointed. How well we have filled the position,we ; leave others to judge ; but we think, con- ! sideling we have had nearly everethiug to do, we have got along tolerably well. The Elevator was not started to give employment to " mining speculators," "reacdy editors," etc., but to give tone and expression to public sentiment, and to develope an advanced...

Recollections, etc. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 29 September 1865

Recollections, etc. We call the attention of our readers to ! the series of papers, of which we this week publish No. 3, headed " Recollections of the Underground Railroad." They are from the pen of one who speaks knowing-j ly, and he relates nothing but actual facts, lie has in his reportori many thrilling ■ episodes, in some of whicli he took an active part. Of the truthfulness of some of the incidents we can testify, as we were j connected with the New York "Agency," and we [find on comparing of notes that i some of the passengers by the U. G. R. R. passed through our hands on their way North. We were engaged in this business with Dr. David Ruggles and William P. Johnson, of New York, aud Steve Myers, j of Albany, long before the opening of the road and when the author of these papers I was a child. Dr. Ruggles organized the ! celebrated Vigilance Committee, assisted |by the above named gentlemen, and of which we were au humble member. We could likewise give some interesting anec...

COMMUNICATIONS. Recollections of the Underground Railroad. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 29 September 1865

COMMUNICATIONS. Recollections of the Underground Railroad. . NUMBER TIIRER. Maria McC., the relative, though slave, i of the well-to do widow to whom we referred in our preceding chapter, was as we jsuid lair in complexion—what would now be called an octoroon—effeminate to a i great degree, nervous and sensitive.— Poor child ! little did she dream of the try(ing ordeal through which she had to pass. I 1 he Doctor was not indifferent to her I charms, and, armed with the power of master, lie well knew if his batterings should fail he had a reserved power which he could exercise. He had at this time an affair of his own on liand—he was addressing a young lady in the First Ward, Miss Emily 11., but gazing on his pretty octo- . I roon, he soon became indifferent to the former, and more completely enamored ; of the latter. The sequal may be easily imagined—poor Maria fell a victim to his passion. Miss Emily was abandoned, and tli us for a brief period the Doctor was secure in his conceale...

City Gossip. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 29 September 1865

City Gossip. Mr. Editor :—1 perceive your city reporter has his hands unusually full of business, or from some other cause, did | not give us his usual bit of "City gossip," ! so I jotted down a few items for your 1 benefit, if you consider them worthy of l acceptance. In the course of my rambles I chanced, j on Sunday last, to attend divine service at the A. M. E. Church, Powell street, during the afternoon and evening. The! afternoon service was very ably conduct-1 ed by a reverend gentleman—whose name j 1 was unable to learn—from the Methodist Conference, in session in this city. The sermon was clear, logical, and well delivered. The reverend gentleman is evidently a close reasoner. The evening address I cannot say as much for, in the way of perspicuity, although the speaker (also from the M. E. Conference) was an earnest, 1 might say enthusiastic divine. A protracted effort Is now being carried on in the A. M. E. Church, and I, as one of the "unblessed" have occasionally lounged...

Church Exhibitions. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 29 September 1865

Church Exhibitions. Mr. Editor : —ln yotir issue of the 22d instant appeared an extraordinary article, visiting strictures upon Church Exhibitions and Soirees. 1 only join issue with its indirect and wanton attack upon the Mental Soiree in Zion Church, —which strictures are, to say the least, ridiculous. I—ln its inconsistency. 2—ln its assumptions. 3—ln its sophistry. First—When we turn to the antecedent of the author of the article, in words and actions, to admit him to be anything else but inconsistent would be doing him injustice. When he talks about preserving Church sanctity by not permitting secular interest to be brought within the holy prccints of the Church, he must recollect his past words and actions in that regard.— The writer of that extraordinary article must recollect that we heard him say, publicly, that the Church of Cod was not to sacred to use for any good purpose, (this was, of course, when he was interested its use), where circumstances necessarily requires its...

Letter from St. Louis. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 29 September 1865

Letter from St. Louis. St. Louis, August 30. Mb. Editor : —1 reached here yesterday. | At Alton, a scraggy, industrious little | town, 1 for the first time saw the Father J of Rivers. I was disappointed, for I found I it a small, sluggish, muddy stream, re- | minding one of the Sacramento, only much j wider. St. Louis was enveloped in a cloud of | black smoke, but is evidently a town of great manufacturing industry. In landing at the Ferry I noticed the streets were narrow, crooked and dirty. Great indeed is the contrast with Chicago. The latter city reminds one of a pretty lass, just grown up to womanhood—so fresh, genial and blooming. St. Louis looked to me more like an English manufacturing town than any 1 have seen in America. She has one public building, her City Hall, that surpasses anything of the kind I have seen. 1 think the architect copied from the capital at Washington without the new wings. I came out of Chicago in a new patent palace sleeping car—indeed it was regal in...

By invitation of the Union men of San Fratfciseo, he addressed a public meeting 011 Monday j evening the 18th inst., in Piatt's Hall, which was crowded to its utmost capacity. Gen.
