Marriage and the Freedmeu. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 27 October 1865
Marriage and the Freedmen. It is to be hoped that very few, if any, persons are to be found in the North who would not be schocked at hearing that the Legislature of Virginia had allowed an act to fall to the ground by which the marriage rite should be made legal among the freedmen. That it has had no sanction of law among slaves has always been one of the most brutalizing characteris tics of the peculiar institutions on which the civilization of the South has been built. The determination of the South erners to keep the black as near the brutal state as possible, can alone account for their present unwillingness to allow the family relation to become established under the sanction of law. There is no one trait in the human animal that separates him more completely from the brute than the institution of the family, and this is based on the sacred ness ot the rite of marriage. The family is the type of the State, and, taking the world over, it is always found that the social laws by ...
Editini; a [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 27 October 1865
Editini; a Editing a paper is a very pleasant business. If it contains too much political matter people won't have it. If the type is too large it don't contain enough reading matter. If we publish telegraph reports people say they are lies. If we omit them they eay we have r.o enterprise or suppress them for political effect. If we have in a few jokes people say we are nothing but a rattlehead. It we omit them they say we are an o'd fossil. If we publish original matter they damn us for not giving selections. If we publish selections folks say we are lazy for not writing more, and giving them what they have read in some other paper. If we give a man a complimentary no tice, then we are censured for being partial. If we do not, all hands say we arc a greedy hog. If we insert an article that please 3 the ladies men get jealous. If we do not cater to their wishes, the paper is not fit to be in the house. If we attend church, they say it is only for effect. If we don't, they denounce u...
SlinksprareN Miyloek. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 27 October 1865
SlinksprareN Miyloek. The plot is founded on fact. The circumstances took place, not at Venice, but hit Rome, during the pontificate of that [severe but great ruler, Sixtus V., who from having been a swine herder, raised himself by lib indomitab'e will, his perseverance, by the deepest cunning and con- | summate hypocracy, to the Papal dignity | and power, at a period of history fertile I in great sovereigns—among whom stand foremost in the rank Henry I V. of France, Elizabeth of England, William 1., Prince &lt; f Orange, Philip 11. of Spain, etc., who were his cotemporaries, and whom he con trolled, by his extraordinary talent for Government, during one of the most critical periods of the history of the Church in Europe, The wager was laid as represented by -hakspeare, with the sole but important difference, that, should the Jew be the loser, the noble was to have the rijjht to cut the pound of flesh out of the Jew's body; should the noble lose, he was to pay a considerable...
Singular Marriage Custom*. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 27 October 1865
Singular Marriage Custom*. The inequality almost everywhere visii ble in human affaire, is perhaps nowhere [more conspicuous than in the contrast between the poverty of ceremony which attends matrimonial unionism in some parts of the world, and the pomp which accompanies them in other parts—tho absence not merely ot a priest, but even of a justice of the peace, at the nuptials in the South Sea Is ands, and the affluent presence of two or more first c'ass clergymen at the fashionable cc'ebrations in our own society. The Siamese used to marry by the simple ceremony of handing over Jhc bride's dot; the couple proceeded homeward as husband and wife, without further ado. liut as these people now have a king who ia devoted to steam engines, telegraphs, and other emblems of progress, doubtless the ladies of his kingdom have obtained glimpses of 4t women's rights," imported with other notions from t'..e United Stites, and accoidingly, no doubt, they do not now suffer themselves to bo dispos...

Prophetic Poem. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 27 October 1865
Prophetic Poem. We copy on our third page a beautiful, poein, by that inspired poetess, Miss Eliza A. Pittsinger. "The Eagle" was written in the year 1803, during the liight of the! war, and first saw print in the American Flag last year, for which paper it was re-j vised by the authoress. It is truly prophetic iu its portrayal of the end of the rebellion, and will be read with pleasure by every true Unionist, and meet with j a response from every true loyal heart. " The Eagle " is written in the quaint; stanzas ol Poe's " Raven," and will compare favorably witli thatwierd production. | We understand that Miss Pittsinger in-i tends giving a series of poetic readings j in this city, in which she will be assisted I by professional talent. This lady has also: volunteered to read for the benefit of thel colored churches, and we hope she will be j liberally patronized at all*her readings.— j We can assure our readers that they may! confidently expcct rich literary and artis%! entertainme...

law, uquity, truth and justice [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 27 October 1865
law, uquity, truth and justice There are certain great principles of equity which are coeval with legal juris-j prudence, having their origin in remote, ages of antiquity, which arc scarce traceable at the present day—they arc recogni-| i zed as the common law of nations, and are: ! incorporated in the codes of sincient and ! modern times. The first is, "Once free, always free."—! This is exemplified in the year of Redemption of the Jewish dispensation, and pro-1 bably was based upon some custom or law j which prevailed in Egypt during the so-j jnurn of the children of Israel in the land of bondage. The law redeemed the slave; from bondage, the prisoner from incarcera- j tion, and nothing but a violation of law can reinslave him. Another, " The rights of a citizen can j not be annulled or abrogated, except for! crime." The earliest application of that \ proposition we find in the Roman laws of' citizenship. Under the Jits Stiff ragii the 1 rights of a citizen were sacred, and none! ...

COMMUNICATIONS. (For the Elevator.) Recollections of the Underground Railroad. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 27 October 1865
COMMUNICATIONS. (For the Elevator.) Recollections of the Underground Railroad. NUMBER FOUR. We promised to say something about the last great stampede from Maryland and its vicinity. About the middle of the summer of 1848, our good friend Sears, becoming emboldened by his repeated successes, after our hero Terry was defeated, determined to avenge himself for the sufferings of his friend, and to this end fitted out the schooner Pearl, of about 90 tons, and gave notice of her time of sailing. No difficulty was experienced in obtaining for her a complement of passengers. On one memorable Saturday night, after some had finished their last piece of ironing, and others had put their " bread to rise," or were blacking their boots for the morning, and so on to the tasks put for the night, a whistle gave the call, and soon some seventy or eighty were wending their way to the place of embarkation, a basin near the old Penitentiary, where the recent execution of the noted assassins took place....

« W » An Illustration of the Ridiculous Prejudice of Color. During the July riots of 1803, a lady of! African descent, a native of Mexico, then I residing in New Orleans, had occasion to! come to New York. She had wealth and] social position in Now Orleans, personal' accomplishments, and also a splendid' Spanish tongue in her head. A genie-1 man friend introduced her to the Captain of the steamer as a Spanish lady. The Captain, with all the politeness of his position, took charge of her as such, and on j the voyage treated her with every attention, conducting her to and from the table upon his arm, etc. On her arrival at New York he conducted her, per instructions, to St. Nicholas Hotel, where she was received with the respect due to a lady.— Now and then keen-eyed glances were cast at her, and whispers now and then heard from other ladies about colored blood, etc., but she ignored her English and spoke Spanish. She dressed in style, behaved ladylike, heard and understood all the En...
THE EAGLE. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 27 October 1865
THE EAGLE. BY EI.IZA A. PITTSINOER. Once upon an April twilight—calm, serene, majestic twilight— As I watched fair Hesper beaming from the blue and crystal shore, I espied far in the distance, either " shadow, show or substance," Of a kingly-crested eagle circuiting the heavens o'er, Where the silent realms of ether clasp their mystic beauties o'er Those that mingle with the shore. Up the towering clifT I wandered, where at eve I oft had pondered On our country's doubtful present—on her ever bounteous store — Mused on mighty men and nations—on their manifold gradations— And the myriad constellations, that begem the heavens o'er When this proud and princely eagle from the silent crystal shore Passed my wondering eyes before. "Oh, thou beauteous bird of omen, from the crystal ether roaming, Come, I pray you, perch beside me on this rude and rock,bound shore ; Tell me of your curious mission, passing thus before my vision— Dost thou come from fields elysian ? art thou skilled in modern...
