[From the American Flag.] I lie Prophetic Poetess of California [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 24 November 1865

[From the American Flag.] I lie Prophetic Poetess of California > mong the scraps which we have lately collected in our reportorie, are a number of poems by Miss Eliza A, Pittsinger of j this city, and we always rise from perusing them with feelings of unmingled plea sure, as we continually discover new beauties, and we can find no greater intellectual treat, no higher relief from, sterner duties than this, nor can we pass j an hour with more real gratification than , in culling the rich flowers of poesy with which to make a boquet for future reference. We are solaced by the soft breathings of her muse, and by the pure and refined sentiments she utters, and have received more unalloyed delight than we ever experienced in reading the works of! any new and unheralded author, not ev< n excepting Alexander Smith. Although unheralded and without the usual aid and facilities which even merit has to use, this lady is not wholly unknown to fame ; I she i as acquired a ...

Anecdote of Alexandei Duiuus. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 24 November 1865

Anecdote of Alexandei Duiuus. A wealthy young American was once introduced to M. Pumas, who, with his usual courtesy and from respect to the introducer, invited the stranger to breakf.st with him next morning. After showing him his various objects of virtu and bijouterie, taking him through his library and conservatory, giving him &n inside view of an author's domestic life in Paris, and making him heartily welcome to the hos- j pitalities of his chateau, while seated over, their cnffe uu lait conversation commenc- j ed. The guest, scanning his host's dark visage, full features and woolly hair, said somewhat hesitatingly, " Excuse me, M.

The End in IVot Yet. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 24 November 1865

The End is Not Yet. I he result of the late elections in >outhern States shows clearly that the lenient policy contemplated by the lamented Abraham Lincoln, and carrii d out by his successor, is i ot the one by which the South may be reconstructed, or the Southern people won back to their allegiance. This conciliatory system has always marked the I'epublicans in their dealings with their enemies. In all their past contests with the Democracy (speaking of that party as it formerly existed ), a si oco-s on the part of the former was invariably followed by forgiveness of l'oes and the dispensation of office to the very men who had used all their influence at the polls to defeat their tyiditional opponents. I here is magnanimity in the idea, reminding us of the generosity of the Woman conquerors ; but, unfortunately, magnanimity is a quality that goes for nothing with partisans and rebels, and the first use made of the power conferred upon them is to sway it for the ruin of t...

Mlm Plttsingers Poetic Reading on Tuesday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 24 November 1865

Mlm Plttsingers Poetic Reading on Tuesday Evening. We attended the above classical and refined entertainment, at Dashaway Hall, and were pleased with the style ai d manner of this lady's reading. This was her first appearance in San Francisco, and she passed the ordeal of a critical audience successfully. She has read in San Jose and other places, and met the approbation of that severe critic and superior judge, J. J. Owen, of the San Jose Mercury. Miss Pittsinger has a just conception of poetry, she enters into the spirit of the author, and throws her whole soul in what she reads. This was exemplified in Poe'sj " Raven." This weird and mystic poem is not generally understood, and we confess, as often as we have read it and as greatly as we admire the originality of thought, expression and construction, we did not really understand it ; we did not comprehend the author's design until we heard this lady read it. She threw an entire new light on it, and brought out beauties we never b...

DEFERRED ARTILCES. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 24 November 1865

DEFERRED ARTILCES. (For the Elevator. Mr. Editor :—ln your issue of the 13th October you publish an article on the arrival of General Lafayette in New York, on the occasion of his visit to America, in 1824, and the enthusiasm with which he was received as the " Nation's guest."— Reading that little notice carried my mind back to the days of yore. Well do I remember when he arrived in Washington, D. C. I then lived in Georgetown, and was drummer for the Riflemen, and marched with my company to meet the " Nation's guest," on his entrance into the capital. In those days all the musicians in Georgetown, Alexandria and Washington were colored men, with the exception of the D. S. Marine Band—the only white band of music in the District of Columbia; but now, I suppose, white musiciaus have monopolized the profession there as here, and it would be almost as difficult to get a colored band there as it was here on the first of last January, and will probably be the same next Emancipation Day....

Great Republic. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 24 November 1865

Great Republic. [Translated from L'lndeptndant, by a lady of this city.] It is announced that there are a very few white troops on the Kio Grande, the posts established along the river are nearly all occupied by colored troops, among whom sickness is making great ravages,carrying oft' at least twenty out of every hundred. The Republic sacrifices without example these negro troops after having engaged them to cooperate in the salvation of their country with promises of liberty, she has stationed them in perilous positions where she will not venture to place her white soldiers; to invest them in republican uniform, these colored people are not permitted to vote as citizens, but they are permitted to die as soldiers. They enjoy no rights, but they are held to perform the most dangerous duties ; it is they who willingly sacrifice their lives for an ungrateful country, which does not regard them as her children. You are truly "0, negro!" the most generous of all mortals. The Republic thi...
