■ ARE WE UNITED?" [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 6 October 1865

■ ARE WE UNITED?" This (juestion is often propounded to us, j 1 and as it will bear a double construction it can also be answered affirmatively and j negatively. As regards all the great elements of | human progress, we arc united, lu refe- ; rence to the political enfranchisement of our race and our elevation to the dignity of citizenship, we arc indissolubly one. In i our love of freedom, not only for ourselves but for all mankind, of every race and every clime ; in our abhorrence of oppression in any form, our detestation of slavery under whatever guise it may present it- ; self, our devotion to Ihe Union,* our obedi- | ence to the laws of the land, even when oppressive, and our fealty to the pure principles of Republicanism, we are united as one man. Wherein then are we divided ? Colored j men are in no way different from white I men. While we agree on the main quesI tions—those of the most importance to our race, and also to mankind, —on miner i topics we are not ynited ; neith...

GREAT MEETING ! Tremendous Excitement!— The Dear People out in Force !! [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 6 October 1865

GREAT MEETING ! Tremendous Excitement!— The Dear People out in Force !! The meeting for the election of Delegates to the Convention to be held in Sacramento on the 25th inst., took place on Friday evening, 29th ult., in the Vestryroom of A. M. E. Church, Powell street. — i Every dishonorable and dishonest means had been used to bring together the rabble, —the lowest scum of San Francisco society were collected to elect one who had opposed the Convention, and all Conventions, until he found the movement was popular, and then he started an oppo- ! sition concern, forging names to append to i his call. Finding that would be a failure, he sought an election to the Sacramento Convention, which he had so violently opposed. The lowest sailor boarding-houses were scoured to bring voters to the meetI ing (there are degrees of seamen's boarding houses, as we well as other places), and the vilest dens in the city disgorged | their hordes. Complexional prejudices were excited ; the cry of " ari...

Atlti-Republicanism in Ohio. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 6 October 1865

Atlti-Republicanism in Ohio. General Cox the Republican candidate for Governor of the State of Ohio has, according to the N. Y. World, written a long, ' elaborate and learned letter defining his position 011 negro suffrage, and proclaiming his thorough-faced hostility to the measure. The General is doubtless a Republican of the Hon. F. M. Pixley's school, and thinks I enough lias been done for the negro, and he should be content. He bases his objections on the ground that the southern ne- | groes and the whites "cannot live peaceably i together in the same community." He ; thinks we should "form a Liberia for them on American soil, where they can practice self-government as a separate communi- ! ty." The old colonization dodge under a I new phase. It is too late to establish any I such theory. The Freedmen may ere , long be wanted again to protect and defend the government and country from ' traitors, unless you give him a voice in J electing his rulers, and then lie will make I his...

COMMUNICATIONS. (For the Elevator.) Our Poet and His Poetry. IIY T. M. D. WARD. Huw often the taunt Las been uttered by the whites, " the colored people do not possess those characteristics which make historians, artists, philosophers and poets, ihese falsities and sophisms are abundantly refuted by such men as Bishops Payne and Campbell, Fred. Douglass, J. McCune Smith, Ira Aldridge, and, though last not least, our own sweet Poet, J.

In the great hereafter our children will search out the names of those who lived to honor our race, who stood in the van of the fight chanting the inspiring anthems ot I iecu olll, as a hapless and oppressed people entered with jubilant 'shouts the pearly gates of Freedom.

The Colored Citizens 6f Napa Valley. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 6 October 1865

The Colored Citizens 6f Napa Valley. I lirough ;i kind invitation of our esteemed friend, Mr. E. Hatton, and others, wo visited Napa on the 30th ult. This is among the most pleasant visits we have I enjoyed this season—made so by the pleasant passage on the steamer "Amelia," through the courtesy of the Captain, and the kindness of his excellent employees— which our gratitude will not cause us soon to forget, and by the lavished hospitality of our kind and numerous friends in Napa. They seemed to vie with each other in conducing to our comfort—white as well as colored. Our greatest pleasure was to find in the Valley, within a radius of ten miles from Napa, so many industrious colored farmers, of good morals and religious practices. We obtained the names of ten, with the quantity of land cultivated, .and amount of stock raised by them, as follows : Messrs. A. Seawell and J. Sinclair cultivate 200 acres ; 40 head of stock. Mrs. Holman cultivates 100 acres : 9 head of stock. Mr. Grigsby...

» " A Snapper up of Unconsidered Trifles." j [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 6 October 1865

» " A Snapper up of Unconsidered Trifles." j Since my last communication to the columns of The Elevator, quite a number of things have occurred calculated to interest a lounger. First and foremost was a "Fruit Festival" for the benefit of the Third Baptist Church. It passed off very pleasantly, and I should think benefitted the Church considerably, as I noticed our young men circulating around, and cash seemed plenty. Friday evening, the 29th ult., I atteuded 1 the meeting for the election of Delegates to the Convention to be held in Sacramento on the 25th of October, and I must say ttiat in many respects 1 was completely disgusted. To an impartial observer the j rulings of the Chairman(one of the divines of this city) were the most one-sided decisions that our meetings have been favored with for some time. There are many persons in this world | who think a minister of God's word should not dabble in the muddy pool of politics. | I would bar no man from a free expres-. sion of his o...

Where's the Paymaster ? [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 6 October 1865

Where's the Paymaster ? San Francisco, Sept. 27. Mr. Editor :—ln my love for universal freedom, and justice to all races, sexes and conditions, the present mooted subject frequently arises in my presence, suffrage for the " Freedmen " —the last word, by the way, is a strange misnomer—without the benefits enjoined thereto, and, to me, very like a responsible employer paying off his trusty and trusted hands with I O Us, purposely forgetting the indorsements. In trading it ipight not be called quite the right thing. Many well meaning persons admit the justice of the debt, but contend that "as to California, there are too few of 'the people' in this State for us to take any trouble about the queston,"—not realizing the great principle involved, and that justice does not require numeratives. Can you ascertain how many men- there are in this State, or better still, on the Pacific coast, who are fraudulently delayed payment of a hard-earned and world-wide acknowledged debt? Yours, truly, F...

Reply to J. J. Moore. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 6 October 1865

Reply to J. J. Moore. We published lust week a ttcortching, withering communication by Rev. J. J. Moore, in answer to an article in our issue of the 22d ult. on " Church Exhibitions." It almost takes away our breath, it is so sarcastic, so humorous, so plausible, and Jesuistical. We like it better, however, jthan the reverend gentleman's cowardly attacks on us, from his pulpit, on the occasion of his second " Exhibition"—or " Mental Soiree," when we could not answer. As regards " inconsistency," " assumptions," and "sophistry," we think the reverend gentleman shows these qualities in an eminent degree. We have never advocated secular performances in Churches. We only advocated holding public meetings, and giving lectures and addresses on moral and political subjects, because we had no other place for such purposes. To further prove his inconsistency, does Elder Moore forget the thea- | trical performance given in Zion Church, I Pacific street, some five years ago, when Messrs. Gilmo...

TELECRAPHIC SUMMARY. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 6 October 1865

TELECRAPHIC SUMMARY. New York, Sept. 20. —The ship Calhoun, arrived here, reports that on the 21st., the crew being in a state of mutiny made an attack upon the cook. During the melee a seaman was shot. On the 20th she was boarded by the revenue cutter Crawford, the crew being still mutinous and two officers imprisoned. They were released and all the crew placed in irons. The cutter remained by the ship until she reached this city, and the mutineers were placed in the hands of the authorities. The Tribune's letter from Raleigh on the 21st, says the election of delegates to the State convention to-day, so far as heard from, was unusually quiet throughout the State. Under the orders of Gen. Roger no soldiers were permitted to leave camp or come near the polls during the day without special permission. The same applied to the officers. Everything has gone one way. All the candidates j elected in Wake, Guilford and Granville counties went before the people in avowed opposition to negro ...
