The Dying Soldier. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 13 October 1865

The Dying Soldier. BY H. 8. C. 1 think I'm dying, comrade, The day is growing dark, And that is not the bobolink, Nor y*t the meadow lark. It cannot be the distant drum— It cannot be the fife, For why should drum or bobolink Be calling me from life ? I do not think I'm wounded, I cannot feel a pain, And yet I'm fallen, comrade, Never to rise again. The last that I remember, We charged upon the foe ; I heard a sound of victory, And that is all I know. I think we must have conquered, For all last night I dreamed That 1 was up in Paradise— Among the blest, it Beemcd, And there beside the throne of God, I saw a binner wave— The good old stars and stripe", my boy. O'er victory and the grave. A hundred thousand soldiers Stood at the right of God, And Old John Brown he stood before, Like Aaron, with his rod ; A slave was there beside liim, And Jesus Christ was there— And over God and Cnrist and all, The banner waved in air. And now I'm dying, comiade, And theie is old John Brown, Standing ...

The Last Visit of Geu. Lafayette. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 13 October 1865

The Last Visit of Geu. Lafayette. One of the most extraordinay exhibitions of public fee ing, and one of the most pleasing that ever took place in this country, was occasioned by the visit of Gen. Lafayette from France in 1824.— The patriot hero was then about T0 years old, but still quite strong in constitution and in the full possession of ad his faculties. He c;ime to our assistance in our Revolution at the age of 19, was a most warm and familiar friend of Washington ; his patriotism was a part of himself, and indeed the most conspicuous part; his sufferings in France and Russia for the cause of lepublican liberty, the romance of a most eventful life, together with a most refined and natural power that he possessed of impressing his own fee'ings on others, made him a most remarkable favorite with our people, lie possessed a simple dignity, free from all vanity and constraint, that made every one feel almost as much at home in his presence as : if they were at one's own fireside w...

Description of a Negro Contiabaud Schowl. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 13 October 1865

Description of a Negro Contiabaud Schowl. TIIK COMPARATIVE MENTAL CAPACITY Of WHITE AND BLACK CHILDREN. An Alabama correspondent of the New York Times has been visiting the "contraband schools" theie; and as he is evidently a man of acute powers of observation and analysis, the following description given by him of one of these little seminaries, will, we think, piove, interesting : " One of the teachers of the Pennsyl vania Freedmen's Relief Association, Mr. Arnold, formerly of New Hampshire, invited me to visit his 'contraband' school, and 1 embraced the opportunity to see the progress in education made by genuine plantation African bloods. Copperhead logic would convince us that the negro cannot learn any more than could a mon- ! key or a mulp. Mr. Arnold was a prejudiced Democrat all his life, while teaching in his New England home, and came South to satisfy his mind on this vexed question. He concludes that the negro children learn the rudiments mure easily than white ones of e...

Extraonlinurf Decision of a Negro M ecling. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 13 October 1865

Extraonlinurf Decision of a Negro M ecling. I he Mobile Advertiser in a rcccnt issue makes the following extraordinary announcement, on the authority of a citizen who was present at a meeting of negroes on the previous Sunday, near that city : "Nine hundred of them assembled to consider their condition, their rights and duties under the new state of existence upon which they have been so suddenly launched. Our informant was surprised at the hard practical sense and moderation of tone with which the spokesmen of the meeting urged their views. After long talk and careful deliberation, this meeting resolved, by a vote of seven hundred voices to two hundred, that they had made a practical trial for three months of the freedom which the war has bequeathed to them ; that its realities were far from being so flattering an their imagination had painted it; that they had discovered that the prejudices of color were by no means confined to the people of the South ; but on the contrary, that i...

THE SPIRIT Or REBELLION [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 13 October 1865

THE SPIRIT Or REBELLION The rampant spirit of rebellion is not (lead; it still burns with all its hellish j fires, and is only awaiting the propitious; hoar to begin anew its treason against the Government which, from all evidences before us, we can readily see is now rapidly hatching. » Every action of the conquered, but not subdued, reconstructed States plainly shows that although reconstructed they are not repentant, nor is it likely they ever will be, until all the present generation of traitors and their issue are either extirpated or exterminated. The nominations by the recent Conventions in the Southern States are all of the old school of secessionists. Not one of President Johnson's pet Provisional Governors has received a nomination, nor lias a single Southern Unionist been selected for any office ; but in their stead, confirmed rebels, and original traitors. Among them stands conspicuous the name of Jus. L. Orr, once speaker of the llonse of Representatives, and formerly G...

Work for Executive Committees and the Convention. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 13 October 1865

Work for Executive Committees and the Convention. We received the following circular from Ceorge L. Stearns, Esq., and wo deem the objects worthy of consideration and action. They involve questions of vital import, and those in which we are immediately interested, and we call the attention of Ex'ecutive Committees. Delegates to the Convention, and our leading men, thereto. We would also refer to the "Educational Monument Association to the Memory of Abraham Lincoln." This is also an important, praise-worthy movement, and should receive the support of our people. We should erect a monument to the great j and good man, that will cast its shadow ion the minds of future generations, and ! make its impress on the world. We hope these and kindred subjects | will be taken up by the Convention, and ! presented in such a manner as to convince the Delegates of their importance. We also need action on the educational | requirements of our own State. The San Jose School is a successful institut...

Universal and Equal Suffrage, Tariff, Internal Revenue, Currency. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 13 October 1865

Universal and Equal Suffrage, Tariff, Internal Revenue, Currency. Boston', September, 1865. Sis : —I have many enquiries from the recipients of mv previous circular, as to the object of the Association. Some think it a political, and others a secret organization ; others again understand its true intent, which is to disseminate valuable information on the questions of the day, and thus produce harmony of action through the intelligence of numbers. This mode | of operation precludes all idea of a secret association. I have now 20,000 names on my list of persons living in all parts of the Union, and to these I send out weekly 20,000 newspapers and 5000 pamphlets ; and this circulation might be widely extended by a slight co-operation on the part of each person interested in it. The next Congress will have before it the most important questions for linal action ; and the decision, whether right or wrong, depends largely on the tone of public sentiment while it is in session.— The Presi...

The object of the meeting j was to collect money to defray the expen-j ses of the delegates to the Sacramento 1 | Convention, and the "crowd" hav ing effect;ed their object had no idea of paying for their fun, so they kept away and business j was conducted harmoniously.

1 The Earthquakes of the Bth inst. " The earth was feverous and did shake." We don't consider it any great shakes, . . after all ; it stop'd our writing for a few j minutes, and that was all. We have made | | u few observations, of which the follwing j are the results : i Our room is due north and south ;we were seated at a table in the north-west | I corner, writing, a clock hangs on the wall j at the north-east coiner. At the first j j shock we looked at the clock, time 12 i o'clock 41 1-2 minutes, r. m. ; the vibration being from north-east to south-west. We took a pencil and card to note time, | duration, etc. Rose from the table when the second shock came, preceded by a semi-gyratory motion and a rumbling grating sound. There were three distinct j shocks—the oseilations now being from least to west; if we include the twisting! motion of the earth there wore four—the j second and third being very heavy, the] last feeling as if it was in the distance, or merely the earth subsidin...

And'have you noticed too, that those who I possess these valuable mementoes, are, generally speaking, persons that we have I seen bumming around our streets for the last four years ?

Market Street Museum. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 13 October 1865

Market Street Museum. All hail to the very intelligent attendant at the Museum ticketVindow, who, though numbered among the " more enlightened | community," would confound two negatives in the same sentence, when he refused us admission, on the 7th instant, by saying, " I c-a-n-t sell you no tickets," — which lead us to believe he would sell us some, —in the mean time handing him the amount for two, and not until he repeated the sentence, with marked emphasis, and adding, "to-night," wo could understand the genius. Immediately as our refusal was decided, the musicians overhead commenced a brilliant air, by which my companion (who is a graduate of one of those charitable institutions known to the world as " Lady Mico's Institute"), said, " Look out! it must be some one of our great generals and battalion advancing to fill the spacious hall, which caused our refusal." On reflection we knew if that was the case we would have been informed by the Flag or some of its cotemporaries ; ther...
