The Pacific Museum. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 17 November 1865
The Pacific Museum. We have lately visited this large and costly collection of anatomical prepara- j tions, and are more fully convinced of the j utility of such institutions in civilized communities. T1&amp; anatomy «&gt;f our bodies, the nature 1 and cause &lt;&gt;f disease, are all here fully illustrated in the scientific preparations, and explained in the lecture room. As the J advertisements say, "a visit of uu hour or j two will convey to the mind more accurate knowledge of the human body, and the mysteries of creation, than a year of j reading." We notice that it is only open for the j admission of geutlemon. We think ' knowledge of the human body, and the myste- j ries of creation" is as necessary to the fe-; males as the males, and wo believe if l&gt;r. ] Jordan should set apart a portion of the day for the admission of females, and had I a lady to lecture, it would be greatly to I his advantage.

Mr. Moore said : Mb. President:—On rising to address this Convention upon the momentous subject (political franchise), the first great right of an' American citizen, which we are deprived of in! this State by a Constitutional prohibition, I am aware, sir, that for me to attempt to supersede j the able speech of the gentleman who has just | taken his seat—whose masterly oratory, stiring patho.i, and thundering eloquence, has captured : every thought in the house—such an attempt by me would be the vainest act of my life. Yet, sir, I cannot let this great question of our right j to the political franchise pass, without adding a word in behalf of our claim to that right. I wish, sir, to make a few remarks upon the I ground of our appeal to the State Legislature ] for the concession of our right of s...

COMMUNICATIONS. The American River, California. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 17 November 1865
COMMUNICATIONS. The American River, California. BY LISLE I.ESTER. It was in May. 1864, when 1 crossed the Sierras, journeying toward silver land, i nearer to the sunrise. The season had j been very backward, and, save the evergreens, the mountains were devoid of spring features—not that they wero gloomy, or uninteresting ; ever the same! unspoken something lingered around the j dells and pockets, tilling their gray nooks with that peculiar witchery, twin to fascination, always found in mountain regions. ! Ever the same great thought and power ! of inspiration, that half seemed to echo into mountain voices, hung over the i towering peaks, as they stood silent in their granduer and suggestive in their proud bearing. At all seasons the wild wierd Sierras are full of fascination and i thought for me ; they impress me with only sense of the purest and greatest, the noblest and most beautiful in life. Upon one of the arms of the dividing! ridge 1 noticed by the road-side a little &...

DEKKIIKED AHTIIAKS. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 17 November 1865
DEKKIIKED AHTIIAKS. (.For the E'evator.) Mr. Eoitor : — Having perused many copies of The Elevator, I confess I am much pleased with its appearance, the tone of its articles, and the general manner in which it is conducted ; and I deem it my duty to drop you a few lines to encourage you in your good work. I hope the Convention will prove successful to devise means for our interest throughout the State. 1 hope all the counties will be represented, as they certainly should be ; and they should send the full number of delegates prescribed by the Executive Committee of San Francisco. Sorry am I to say that while wo have many young men in Amador county, we have very little interest manifested.— Therefore, to our shame be it said, this county will not be represented in the Convention. There are quite a number of colored people scattered throughout this county— many of whom have large families, whose children are growing up in ignorance and idleness. No school for them to attend, and here ...

TELEGRAPHIC SUMMARY. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 17 November 1865
TELEGRAPHIC SUMMARY. New York, Nov. 10. — The Time's Washington special says all reports about Cabinet dimissims over the correspondence between Earl Russell aud Mr. Adams, are absurd. That correspondence was in the hands of Government for several we ks before it was published, and Mr. Seward had written a reply to Earl Russell's last dispatch at least six weeks Bince. It is generally understood that he informed the English Government " we shall not press suggestions or arbitration*, nor sliall we consent to submit • any question to the decision of a commissioner, unless all claims at issue between the two Governments be submitted." It is also probable that Mr, Seward's dispatch was made by request to know what topics were intended to come before the commission, suggested by Earl Russell as a necessary preliminary to the acceptance or declination of it, The following is the sentence of the Briscoe Ccurt Martial: "The Court does therefore sentence him, Brevet Brigadier-General brisco...
