MR. St WARD ON RECONSTRUCTION. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 8 December 1865
MR. St WARD ON RECONSTRUCTION. Hon. Win. 11. Seward, Secretary of j State, lute Senator in Congress, ex-Gov-ernor (if the State of New York, has been visiting Auburn, "Sweet Auburn," and while there he made a little speech to his friends and neighbors, and the subject matter of his discourse was " Uecont struction," or reorganization of the rebellious States—we will not argue about the term, fur they mean the same thing. After eulogizing the great Lincoln, he : introduces "Andrew Johnson, tin; new President, a slaveholder in practice, tho" ! not in principle, yet in principle and association a Democrat"—as if modern American politics had not made these almost ' synonymous terms ; and he then proceeds to enlighten his hearers on the plan of reconstruction, as pursued by the present Administration, which he says is precisely ; the plan laid down by Abraham Lincoln. | That it was President Lincoln's plan we J ! readily admit; lint would President Lincoln have employed such means to car...

From Dickena* All the War Round. The I'oisou ( liaiubci- of Ptii is. Setting aside all rt forence to the politi- ; cal crimes committed during the long reign of Louis the Fourteenth, the "grand jtnonarquc" of worn-out tradition, there 'were many social stains which sadly dimmed its reputed splendor. Amongst these, the series of events which French writers call " L'affaire des poisons,'' is undoubtedly the most remarkable, though it has been made—at least in modern times—iio very prominent subject of discussion. The trial of the Marchioness de Brinvilliers, for poisoning her father, her brother, and other victims, has usu ally absorbed public attention, as if she and her immediate accomplices were simply associated in guilt that was special to themselves ; but this Brinvilliers case was far from being an isolated one. On the cont ary, it was but the precursor of a general system of poisoning. Society, tainted by the very worst vices, was widely infected by the desire which prompted L...

LEGISLATING ON THE NEGRO [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 15 December 1865
LEGISLATING ON THE NEGRO " Mr. LoNfi, of Tkhama ami Collsa, pave | notice of a liill to prevent the immigration of negroes into the State of California." We copy the above from the proceedings in the Assembly on Friday last. .Mr. Long is a Copperhead, and doubtless one of the breed who fears negro equality, lie can view the negro in no other light than a.s a slave or his superior. He evidently fears if they immigrate here in any quantity they will soon become his political and social equals, and eventually his mental superiors. Handagc expert —why would the liono- ! table gentleman from Tehama and Colusa | prevent the immigration ol negroes into 'this State? Are they not freemen and j citizens? Are they not "endowed with I the inalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness?" And if they • think they can find "happiness" in the j State of California, why would the honora-; ; bio gentleman prevent them? They are Americans by birth and habits; an honest, industrious ...

She read seve- | ral original productions, among which was :a stirring patriotic poem, called "The I Eagle." It was written during the war, land is prophetic of the final termination. . This, as well as her other pieces, was well given, and showed the varied talent of this lady. She also read some choice selections from other authors, including Byron's " Isles of (irecce." This beautiful heroic poem was read with spirit and artistic elegance of expression. Miss I'ittsinger was in better voice and "condition" than at her former entertainment, and gave greater ell'ect to her subjects, Powell Street Church is a far preferable place to read in than Dashaway Ilall ; it is easier filled with s...

Foder;il and State Messages. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 15 December 1865
Foder;il and State Messages. We have never know a time when the messages of the Federal and State Exocutiveß created less excitement than the present; and just now, at the termination of a long and disastrous war, when the country is settling down to its normal condition, and a true Republic, such as our fathers fought for aud imagined they had perfected, is about being established, we should expect that everybody would be on the qui vive lor the messages, but the contrary is the case—nobody seems tocarc anything about them. We have received from the Executive ! Department of the State of California, a j copy of the first biennial message of Gov. ! Low. It is a well written State paper, and an a literary production will compare favorably with any document of the kind j it is above the average. The message gives a clean exposition of the State finances, showing they are in a prosperous condition. The Governor also shows the condition of the State Institu. tions, State and swamp lands...
