COMMUNICATIONS. (For the Elevator.) Mutual Life Companion. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 3 November 1865

COMMUNICATIONS. (For the Elevator.) Mutual Life Companion. Civilization, man's religious instinct, and modern philosophy, all agree on the united couple of man and woman, according to the persuasion of civilization. The preordinator seemed to have pronounced the masculine as the protector of the ( weaker sex, —the latter, with delicate and appropriate sensibility, to shed cheerfulness throughout life's vicissitudes,in order to render both mutual life companions.— ; By their long co-existence, and to the duties originally prouounced, they cannot only be of benefit to themselves and offspring, but to far off intelligence—leaving here for those better and brighter lights, they may leave the experience of their journey as a guide for ensuing humanity; thus gaining by their predecessors' maxims, generation after generation might build themselves up to the exalted hopes of existence. But in order to bring about our presumed human excellence, both sexes must first discriminate, and choose ...

TELEGRAPHIC SUMMARY. New York, October 23d.—The substance of the President's remarks on the subject of the reconstruction of the Southern States, during the late interview with him, has been given, with the President's approval, by Major General G.

A Faithful Widow. The loiterer along Broadway who stops j to look at the monument of Gen. Mont gomery, in St. Paul's Church, will be glad to read this touching incident, related by Mr. Hunt, in his lately published " Life of Edward Livingston." Mont j gomery was a captain in the British army when he first met Livingston's Janet, whom he afterwards married, —: When the Revolutionary war began he was made one of the brigadier generals of ! of the army of United Colonies. He had been married but two years, but his wife did not oppose his departure, and he took leave of her at Saratoga, 1775, upon his way to Canada, His parting words to her were, "You shall never blush for your Montgomery," and she never saw I him again. In the year 1818, the Legislature of New York resolved to transfer his remains ' from Canada, and Edward Livingston's son Lewis, the nephew of Vrs. Montgomery, was commissioned by Governor De Witt Clinton to superintend the removal, j On the 9th of July they reached Alb...

Spaech of Mr. Wm. H. Hall. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 10 November 1865

Spaech of Mr. Wm. H. Hall. Mr. PRESIDENT:—I have refrained from intruding upon the time of the Convention until now, but the importance of the question presented here for consideration, brings us before the American people of California to-day, to ask their decision upon the great subject of negro suffrage. It is the most momentous issue! ever addressed to public opinion, and embraces the political prospects of all parties, as well as the duration and destiny of our Republican institutions. Ffteen years ago, when the despotism of slavery was at the hight and plenitude of its power, and every interest, social and political, subserved its ends, California, in drafting a Constitution as one of the sovereign States of the Union, decreed that no bondsman ever should be held by legal enactment or constitutional law within her limits. In laying down this broad principle of liberty and self-govern- 1 ment, her citizens were not actuated by the spirit of '76; they did not desire to recognize...

The Old Folka' Concert [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 10 November 1865

The Old Folka' Concert ffljc dltbator.' SAN FRANCISCO: FRIDAY NOVEMBER 10, 1865. A novel entertainment was given on Wednesday evening last at Bashaway j Hall, by the young ladies and gentlemen of Bethel A. M. K. Union Church. Thej costumes of some of the guests represented the styles of dress worn two or three generations back—rather before our rccollec-| tion, as venerable as wo are supposed to be. The supper table was bountifully! spread, and, as is not often the ease, was more useful than ornamental. There was! plenty, and to spare, and of substantial, i such as baked beans, chicken and turkey, j corned beef and cabbage, home made pies j and apple slump, with the inevitable roast pig. The company was large, and all, we \ believe, well pleased with the entertain-1 ment, which was given for the benefit of the above named church, and we hope it' proved a real benefit. N. B.—The old figure-head who was in' attendance refused to give us a piece of home-made pie, although we saw plenty...
