I CITIZENSHIP AND SUFFRAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 22 December 1865
I CITIZENSHIP AND SUFFRAGE. Th&lt;- basis of citizenship consists, as we have shown in former articles on this subject, in freedom, nativity, hereditary descent, or is conferred for some service rendered the State, military or otherwise. The privileges annexed thereto are, the right of testimony, the right of office, the right of holding property, taxation, and being enrolled in the census, and the right of suffrage. \\ hile tlie Republics of (irecce and liomo permitted slavery they made liberal provisions for manumission, no objects intervening, such alinage, or &lt; iriniinality, the frecdman at once became a citizen, and was entitled to all the privileges of his class, the first of which was his oath and vote ; and as he progressed in wealth, services or position he became endowed with other rights and privileges. The ancient governments were also jealous of admitting aliens to citizenship, and likewise of allowing citizens to alienate themselves—for no one could ...

DEATH OF DR JAS. McCUNE SMITH. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 22 December 1865
DEATH OF DR JAS. McCUNE SMITH. We have this week ;i sorrowful duty to perforin in recording the death of one who was to us as a brother of our blood—one whom we loved for our long associations and the deep, sincere a flection existing between us—respected for his honest heart, his genial companionship, and his many virtues ; honored for bis deep learning, liis varied talents, his true patriotism, .intl his exalted Christian character. Dr. Jamf.s McCcxe Smith was born in the city of New York, April, 1811. llis first tuition was received from "Grandma Weaver." About 1819 or he went to the African Free School, in William street. This school was established by the New York Manumision Society, and was conducted by Charles C. Andrews. Of the many scholars who attended that school, but few arc now living—we can only name Rev. J. Peterson, of New York, Dr Jas Fields, of Ohio, Hudson R. Livingston, Benj. Fisher, and ourself. At about the age of sixteen he left that school with the highest ho...
Death's Doings. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 22 December 1865
Death's Doings. The decease of several eminent men at home and abroad, has been announced this week. In San Francisco, Judges Sheppard and McAllister have left vacant places in many loving hearts. One of America'# greatest statesmen, Honest Tom Corwin, lately had an attack of apoplexy and we suppose by this time is dead. The good old King of Belgium, Leopold I. has left a vacant throne and those regal baubles, a crown and sceptre to be quarreled over i and perhaps fought for. Leopold was Iclosely allied to the reigning family of (Jreat Britain, having been son-in-law to 1 George IV., and at one time presumtive Prince Coneort. He was likewise uncle I of tjneen Victoria, and also to her late husband, l'rincc Albert. His second wife was a daughter of Louis Phillipe, late King of j the French. He was esteemed a good man, much loved by his subjects, and his | advice and counsel courted by the reigning I European monarchs. Ilis life was ex- ! tended to three score and fifteen years, j The...
Letter from Chicago. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 22 December 1865
Letter from Chicago. Chicago, Nov. 21st. Mr. Editor :—The weather here this Fall h;is been remarkably pleasant ; an abundant crop has been gathered in ; business in all its relations has been good ; the public health lias been somewhat effected during the warm months with chills, ague and fever ; the frost has abated that, and now good health, peace and plenty abound in this highly favored region—"Thank the good Lord and bless His name forever." Several regiments of soldiers have been paid off and mustered out the service.— There are plenty of them here, .and they are quietly melting into citizens. They are not thieves, ravishers, nor incendiaries, as the Copperhead papers and Knglish press said they would be—thus proving those papers poor prophets and unmitigated liars. This city still goes ahead ; buildings of all sorts and sizes are going up ; but not a house, store or shanty for rent in any direction. Many persons came here this Fall to hire, but finding no room they had to go f...

TELECRAPHIC SUMMARY. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 22 December 1865
TELECRAPHIC SUMMARY. Washington, December 13.—Henry Ward Utecher's speech in the Mall of the House to-night seems to have been intended as an offset to what his old friends have been calling his recent backslidings. He argued that the emancipation promised by Lincoln would not be complete till the freodiuen were given all rights which liberty gives in this land to any freemen. He scouted the idea that suffrage was not a natural right. It is ; if it was not, then liberty was not, for it was absurd to talk of giving liberty without all the rights by which that liberty is to be maintained. But, going beyond this, he exacted that not only all men, but all women had a right to vote. There are rumors that General Logan, immediately upon communicating with the Republican Government of Mcxico, will propose a commercial treaty between the United States and the Republic, which will secure to America important rig'it-i upon the great lines from the Gulf 0 Mexico and the Pacific coast, and such...
