THE CONVENTION. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 1 December 1865
THE CONVENTION. We have not had an opportunity of saying much on this important subject since our return from Sacramento, and we can only briefly allude to it now. We have completed the minutes, and our distant j readers can judge of the work done and the ability displayed. The proceedings as published in The Elevator, are in a desultory form, but the pamphlet will be out in a few days, in which they are more satisfactorily arranged and errors corrected. The Addresses from the Convention to which we call especial attention, contain the animus of the proceedings of that body, and they are worthy of deep and mature consideration. All the subjects were referred to the Executive Committee, who are actively engaged in the work assigned them. They have the confidence of our entire community and we believe they will faithfully perform their duties. Before we issue our next number, our memorial will be presented to the Legislature of this State, where we hope it will receive that considerat...
Another Sore in Process cf Healing [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 1 December 1865
Another Sore in Process cf Healing By recent advices from the East we learn that the recent Convention of the several Grand Lodges who are in union with the United Grand Lodge of New York, was a great success. The presiding officer of the Supreme Grand Council of France was present, and addressed the Convention. Many of the dignitaries of t ie N. G. L. were present, andjparticipate l in the discussions. They closed with a grand banquet, and a splendid oration by Wru. Howard Day of the National. Correspondence has been opened with a view of reconciling the differences heretofore existing between the two bodies, ( a mere legal question ) and we hope for the good erf our people that so desirable an object may be speedily consummated. Unite these two bodies, and the great Methodit-t Church and our people are a unit. It has been intimated that a new Lodge will be probably installed the approaching anniversary, if so it will afford a good opportunity for mutual good offices. " So mote it ...
COMMUNICATIONS [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 1 December 1865
COMMUNICATIONS [For the Elevator ] Mr. Editor—Sir:—Permit me to say a j word or two concerning the "Executive Committee" of the city and county of j San Francisco. I ask this privilege for several reasons. First, because I am not one of the Committee. Secondly, because 1 feel a great interest in all that concerns my race. Thirdly, because of the great many things said of the unfaithfulness of the Executive Committee by the Pacific Appeal, which claims to be the " official organ of the people of color in the State of California and of the American colored people on the Pacific Coast," notwithstanding the said organ does not appear scarcely once a mouth. But I must at present, demur to this sweeping claim of the " organ" to represent everybody in | the world, therefore 1 prefer the columns of your valuable paper for the present occasion, to those of my own "organ." I am induced to pen these few lines, from an article in the Appeal of the 25th ult., headed, "The Clique at Work Again" a...
Reflections. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 1 December 1865
Reflections. Whore are the golden dreams of boyhood's lightsome days ? Where are the radiant pearls pictured by the youthful mind, when naught but undescriptive joys were the sole possessor of our being ? It was then we proposed to build a world and legislate its customs ; reared within our unexperienced minds castles which amaze maturer years, in which to dwell by the merit of our genius. Now they have flown, and the stern reality, the many vicisitudos of life are moving with our cautious strides. Here and there, from clime to clime, the strife is seen, in which we join, to rise or fa 1 ; until, like the rising and setting of creation's light, we are borne down by the alloted days, to rise again into purer birth. Then where is the need of pompous reign and usurpation of human rights? The crown, with its king and lord and prince, shall all crumble into dust, like the supplicants at their gates. Nor does the remembrance of these facts impede our moral in earthly joys ; they tend more...
Social Equality. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 1 December 1865
Social Equality. "A subscriber" wrote to Mr. Greeley,of the Tribune, asking him to answer explicitly the following question : "Are you in favor of elevating the negroes among us to a social equality with the whites ?" To which the editor thus replies : " There is no such thing as " social equality" on earth, and never can be while sorao are good, others bad ; some intelligent, others ignorant ; some coarse and repulsive, others refined and agreeable. Sonora is not a very large place, yet we venture to assert that there are whites in it who do not invite Mr. Ballinger to dinner, and others whom he does not invito. We insist that ho and every one else shall continue to enjoy perfect freedom in the premises, and regard whomsoever each of them severally will as superiors, equals, or inferiors. So with all others, white or black. We advocate the largest liberty in all matters of social intercourse, so that if black and white choose to live on terms of social intimacy, they may ; if not, ...

A Teirible Toinudo. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 8 December 1865
A Teirible Toinudo. [CONCLUDED.] Still the wind increased in fury, and 1 the house trembled and shook in the most j frightful manner, .-uddeuly the eastern | walls came in upon us with a rush, the ceiling came down in fragment*, the light was instantly extinguished, and the wind swept over and around us with an awful powtr, and whirled us around among the ruins as a child might have knocked about ' its toys. No description can do justice to such a j scene, and imagination itself must fall far : short of the horrible reality. For myself, 1 had been hurled back into one corner, and found a human body resting heavily upon me. I heard wild | shrieks, thought of Clara, and attempted I to rise. At that moment a Hash of lightning showed me it was a negro who had : fallen upon me, and putting my hand to | his head, 1 made the awful discovery that a part ot it was gone—having, as I after- | watds conjectured, been carried away by ; a falling beam. The man was dead, and j probably never knew ...
A Human Heiu. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 8 December 1865
A Human Heiu. In the war between Rome and Carthage, the consul Kegulus was taken cap- , tive. He was kept a close prisoner for two years, pining and sickening in his loneliness, while in the meantime the war continued, and at last a victory so decisive was gained by the Romans, that the People of Carthage were discouraged, and resolved to ask terms of peace. They thought that no one would he so readily I listened to at Home an Hegulus, and they [therefore sent him there with their envoys, having first made him swear that he would come back to his prison if there 'should neither be peace nor an exchange of prisoners. They little knew how much more a true-hearted Roman cared for his i city than for himself, for his word than (for his life. j V\ om and dejected, the capt ve warrior came to the ou'.side of the gates of his own city, and there paused, refusing to enter. kk i am no longer a Komau citizen," he said; "1 am but a barbarian's j slave, and the senate may not give audi- 1 once ...
AU AiKuiucut ill Favor of Matrimony. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 8 December 1865
AU AiKuiucut ill Favor of Matrimony. VV e never remember to have seen the fie (1 canvassed lrom the point of view here chosen. We present it for the sage consideration of our readers : No one will contend that there are no crimes committed by married men. I 1 acts would look such an assertion out of countenance. But it may |, e H aid with truth that there are very few crimes i committed hy married men compared with the numter committed by those who are unmarried. Whatever faults Voltaire may have had, he certainly showed himself a man of sense when he said, — •The more married men you have the fewer crimes there will he. Marriage lenders ;i man more virtuous and more wise.' An unmarried man is but half of a perfect being, and it requires the other half to make things right; and it cannot be expected that in this imperfect state lie c m keep the straight path of rectitude, any more than a boat with one oar, or a bird with one wing, can keep a straight course. In nine cases out of ten...
