THE CONVENTION [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 14 July 1865

THE CONVENTION The cull for Stat<- Convention has now i been some weeks before the people, and we have received many favorable and encouraging responses. We have also received some which are not so encouraging, ( as far as the prospect of a large attendance is concerned, for reasons given, but none unfavorable to the project—all conceding that we should meet again in coun--1 oil, that our strong men, the mental and | moral worth of our people, the representatives of our intelligence, wealth and piety ' should assemble together to discuss, not our interests as a distinct and separate , race, but our interests as connected with | the great American people, with whom we | are identified, and from whose destinies ours are inseparable. 1 We have published all the letters we have received on the subject,from which it will be seen that we have no opposing | opinions as regards the importance and absolute necessity of a Convention at this i time. The only opposition we have enj c...

THEN AND NOW. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 14 July 1865

THEN AND NOW. The difference. —In 1H()2, when we were S editing 1 the Pacific Appeal, the "distinguished individual " who "employed" us in that capacity was very anxious we I should issue a call for a Convention for the purpose of giving expression to our , opinions on the Testimony Hill, or call the attention of the people to the subject.— We objected—giving as our reasons, tiiat the colored people had held three Conventions, on that and kindred subjects, and , our opinions were well known; besides, our case had been up for Legislative action— one house having passed a bill to restore our right of oath, of which we had been | unjustly deprived. We finally overruled him, and the idea of a Convention was at that time abandoned. Again, when in July, 18(54, the Call for a National Convention appeared in the Anglo Africfin, the same "distinguished individual" wished us to unite with him in calling a public meeting to send a delepate from California to the Convention. We again objected, ...

The Fine Arts. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 14 July 1865

The Fine Arts. We have received from Mr. Barthrop, ! Agent for the publishers, a beautiful characteristic engraving, which we described a few weeks ago, entitled " Heading the Emancipation Proclamation in a Slave Cabin." It is handsomely framed, and the sub- ! Hcription price for proof impressions is | £7. (See advertisement). " Lincoln at Home" is also another ] beautiful engraving, for which the Agents | are soliciting subscriptions. It represents President Lincoln and his youngest son j reading the Bibel. The likenesses are i said to be perfect, so pronounced by Mr. Lincoln and his family, and it was the last j one for which he sat, which, of course, j gives it additional interest. Mr. Piukham is Agent for the section of this city north lof Clay street. We have given him the names of several of our friends, who, we think, would like to possess, as a memento of the greatest man of modern times, so correct a likeness, and withal such a beautiful specimen of art.

Letter from Victoria. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 14 July 1865

Letter from Victoria. Victoria, July 4tl>, 1865. Mk. Editor :—The nionotonions scenes of our hitherto quiet city were somewhat j changed to-day, being the 89th Anniversary of American Independence. Preparations had been some days in progress to make it a grand celebration. The day passed ofl' pleasantly ; it really seemed a day of genuine rejoicing— not by Americans alone—although being strictly an American jubilee—the English alike participating in the general festivities. The Government officers, and merchants generally, closed their places of business. ! Ahout two thousand persons assembled at , Cadboro Hay, three miles from the city, under the patronage of the American Council, where an oration was delivered by Lawyer Bagley, of Washington Territory. lie handled his subject with marked ability, frequently drawing from the vast assembly an almost deafening response to the eloquent sentiments expressed.

Miss Angela Starr King-Introductory Letter from the Rev. Dr. Bellows. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 14 July 1865

Miss Angela Starr King-Introductory Letter from the Rev. Dr. Bellows. New York, May 18, 1865. To all the Friends of the lafe Thomas Starr King:—Miss Angela Starr King - , sister in blood and iu spirit to that lamented Patriot and Preacher—after a most successful career in New England and New York, is about testing the interest of California in her art, and kindred with Mr. King's own, that of fine utterance in readings recitations. Perhaps the most pleasing echo of that silver voice now hushed, that was by turns a clarion and a lute, will be caught by listening to a sister's voice, trained by patient labor to an art for which it possessed the finest natural fitness. No more grateful tribute could be tendered Mr. King's memory than to give his beloved sister a cordial and substantial welcome in the field of his own ever memorable triumphs. Nor could the service of filial and brotherly protection he while living so cheerfully fulfilled, but which his death so disastrously interrupted,...

Education of Freedmen. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 14 July 1865

Education of Freedmen. This very necessary element in the rej generation of the South is not neglected. The " Freedtnen's Aid Association," which is a different organization from the "FreedI men's Relief," have been doing their work noiselessly, but as efficiently as their sister j charities. A late number of the New | York Times gives the following important (information relative to the scope of this enterprise: " The Boston, New York, Philadelphia,! land Baltimore ' Freedtnen's Aid Associa-I tion' are establishing rudimentary schools I i all over the South. The Boston Association I has one hundred schools in actual opera-' | tion ; Philadelphia is doing as much audi New York more. So that at this moment j there is in every Southern State the nucleus) of a goud system of education—something l unknown hitherto in that region, and yet ! the last shot of the war is not yet fired.— Wherever our armies have penetrated, the ! schoolmaster has followed close in their | rear ; and, if we w...

TELEGRAPHIC SUMMARY. A delegation from South Carolina has arrived j In Washington to ask the early appointment of i« Provisional Governor (or that State. Tbtir tirst choice for this position is ex-Governor Aiken ; their second, General Gnrney, commandant at Charleston. The delegation, it is said, have instructions to rrport to President Johnson the expediency of establishing an efficient plan whereby the relations between the ireedmen of the State and their employers, in regard to labor and wages, can be sa'.islactorily arranged. They profess a williugness towards the freedmen whom they may employ, to give one-half of their crops as recom peusu for their labor, but unlets they have a guarantee that the labor shall be continuous, it will ba cf no u»e to cortmense crops. Another idea is, that if the late slaves are allowed to choo.*e their employers and occupation*, they will invariably select corn planting as the easiest work, to the great decrease of cotton and rice crop*.

What shall we do with the Slaves ? [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 21 July 1865

What shall we do with the Slaves ? The providences of God, His controlling hand, appear in our national history, as they appear, we believe, in thatuf no other people, not even excepting that of the Jews. We have been but following out, •when rightly understood, His foreordained plan, fulfilling His decrees. The merest novice in our history can call up many examples which demand the agency of God in order to explain them. The pillar of cloud has moved before us by day, and the pillar of fire by night; the very winds have brought to us meat for food, and the heavens have rained their manna to sup- ; ply our wants. Through strange and often j terrible ways, He has led us, but always to greater power, more commanding elevation. He has but allowed calamities to overtake us and wars to come upon us, j that we may search more carefully for the sure foundation. He has allowed the lightning to partially scathe the tree of liberty, that under its hark we may see the worms that would destroy ...

Mrs. William 11. Seward. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 21 July 1865

Mrs. William H. Seward. During the single hour that the overland telegraphic wires were in working order on the 23d of June, a brief dispatch from Washington was received at Placerville by Hon. Schuyler Colfax—the pleasant guest of California—from the Hon. Ed. M. Stanton, which was telegraphed throughout the State on the same day. It that message it was said, " Mrs. Seward is dying." There was no accom-, panying word of explanation, and no other communication for several successive days, and Californians, whose interest in this ruling family has been intense and uninterrupted since the murderous assault of the memorable night of the 14th April, in all that interval of passing time, suffered the grevious aggravation of protracted anxiety and apprehension, yet not without hope of better news. But our fears were realized when on the evening of the 8th of July the telegraph told us that Mrs. Seward was dead. This amiable and accomplished woman was born in the village of Auburn, Cayuga c...
