Freedmen in California. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 20 October 1865
Freedmen in California. Dr. Dorsett of Tulare county, brought out on last steamer, twenty-two freedmen Ito work on his farm. We learu, for we did not see them, that they are a fine looking. able-bodied set of men, and we doubt not will do credit to their race. We hope the experiment of Dr. Dorsett will prove successful, and be the means of inducing others to send for that class of laborers, as labor is much ueedrd in California as well as in the adjoining States and Territories, and thousands of them could be usefully employed. It would be well if the railroad companies would send for a few thousand of these hardy workmen ; they are accustomed to that kind of labor, and the great work of connecting the Atlantic and Pacifie oceans would be completed iu a few years. Female labor ie also greatly wanted in this country by families for domestic work, and it would be an advantage to bring women also.

Er. Rowell Pixleyized. Wc are sorry to see that our whilom friend and onco staunch Union man, Dr. 1. j Howell, has abandoned his life-long faith I and forfeited the high esteem of his friends 1 and supporters by going over to the Democratic party, body and soul, pills and powders. The Doctor gives as the cause of his apostacy, that the nominees of the Union party had worked against him at the late municipal election, when he was the candidate for the Mayorality. What has that' to do with the Union party, and the principles which the Doctor then espoused ? lie was running against a very popular man, —one who has tilled the ollice with approbation, and who is likewise a sound ' Union man. Mayor Coon had the prestige | of office, and the incumbent always has the advantage, as three to five, over his i | opponent, if he has performed well the du- J ties of his office ; he had the support of the People's party, and also that of many Democrats, who, seeing no chance for the ! success of t...

" The Glorious Effects of Emancipation.'' BY J. MADISON BELL. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 20 October 1865
" The Glorious Effects of Emancipation.'' BY J. MADISON BELL. An extract from a Poem delivered at Hayes' Park, August Ist, 1865, in com-; memoration of the emancipation of slavery in the British West India Islands : I. " 'Twas then that Freedom's Angel flew, With thought-like speed, o'er iand and wave, i And loud his charion trumpet blew And woke to life each panting slave. Wake them to life! They did not sleep, But there in anxious silence stood, Waiting the welcome sound to sweep Athwart Atlantic's briny flood. 11. when the sound fell on their ear, They laughed, they wept, they knelt in prayer; *| And rising from their bended knees They sang in joyous ecstacies, Till hill and vale and distant plain I Gave back the joyous sound again. Oh! for a llapheal's hand to draw The matchless granduer of that sight, That earth might see as Angels saw, From off the parapets of lights. 111. " For shining ones of Heavenly birth Bent o'er the Jasper walls on high, To catch the jubilant songs of e...

UUFEKUKI) AKTULKS. Theatrical Criticism. ; ] Mr. I). E. Bandmann as Shylock. To criticise correctly the acting of , Shakspeare's play?, the writer should know the history or the antecedents of the play and characters represented, when they have any historical foundation, and ( when wholly fictitious he should trace sup- ( posed antecedents from the age and coun- , try. We can with difficulty disabuse our minds of the prejudice with which time and custom have surrounded us, or forget pre-conceived opinions, however errone-i ous experience and more matured judgment may prove them to be. There is an almost universal idea formed of the characters in Shakspeare's plays, which has become conventional, and he must needs be a bold man who would propound a different theory, or endeavor to combat that idea. The character of " Shylock," in Shaks- ! peare's inimitable play of the " Merchant ; of Venice," is not intended as a literal picture of a Jew of the middle ages. He was of the aristocracy...
