A Fragment of Southern History. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 29 December 1865
A Fragment of Southern History. BY AN F. F. V. Some months previous to the close of the war, while I resided in the Old Dominion, a little incident came under my observation which I will try to relate. A friend invited me to take a ride into the country, one pleasant afternoon, remarking tlyit I should haye the privilege of seeing a curiosity, as well as have a ride. I readily accepted the tempting invitation. We left the city behind us, and took the road that leads to Suffolk, our destination being Bowers Hill. Our way lay through a swamp, a continuation of the Dismal Swamp. 'J he road was a fine one, a " corduroy," built by Yankee Mudsills and Greasy Mechanics. We passed all the guards without any trouble (my friend having procured a pass before starting), and after a few hours' ride arrived at what used to be a large old plantation, now looking like a city of tents. Where the overseer's tin horn once called slaves to work, the rattle of the drum was now heard calling thousands of...
A Munificent Gift. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 29 December 1865
A Munificent Gift. The Boston Post tells a good story in regard to the Messrs. Lelands, of this city,which speaks well fir their liberality: " A few weeks since, one of the churches in t'ue vidage of Chester, (Vermont,) through their trustees, resolved to replace the old bell in their church with a new one, and it was proposed to procure the new bell by a general subscription. A gent'eman waited upon the Messrs. Lelands, of the Metropolitan Hotel, of New York (who are natives of Chester, and worshipped at this church), with a subscription list. 'How much do you want V interrogated the Lelands. 4As much as you choose to give,' replied the gentleman. 'How much will the new bell cost?' ' Six hundred dollars,' was the reply.— ' Well, then,' responded the Lelands, 'order your bell, put it up, and send the bill to us and we'll pay it, What money you have subscribed put into the poor fund of the church. Chester,' continued the brothers, 'is our native place, and we consider it a privilege ...

ft EURO SUFFRAGE. An address deliveredby John M. Langs on, Esq., cf Ohio, before the Colored Men's Convention of Indiana, at Indianapolis, October 25th. In the bread and far-reaching track of slavery, across this country, wo witness a i grand desolation of civil and political rights. Every class in the American population can enter its complaint that it has been shorn of many rights and privileges, by reason of its existence. Hut none can utter that long, loud, lamentable complaint, making the ear to tingle and the heart to bleed, that can be utter--1 ed by the negro, the immediate victim of its barbarous torture. As a slave ho has j been denied himself, his wife, his children, and his earnings. And when emancipated his freedom has been, in some sense, a mockery, because he has been deprived of those civil and political rights and powers which render enfranchised manhood valuable, and its dignities a blessing. | THE NEGRO NOT CONTENT WITH MERE EMANCIPATION. The negro is not' content...

In Memoriam. i f ...... .i» H Death has again visited the household of our friends and taken from a family circle, where she was loved and cherished, oue j whom it was our pleasure to know and! honor for a long, long series of years. Mrs. Rosetta Lee C'owes, wife of James C. Cowes, died on Thursday, 28th instant, aged 55 years. Mrs, Cowes was born in Troy, N. Y., but lived in the city of New! York for many years. She was widely known, and loved and respected by all. Thus oue by one are the friends and associates of my youth crossing the river, j and my heart, like a " Muffled drum is beating " Funeral marches to the grave.'' Mrs. Cowes leaves a large and sorrow- j ing family to mourn her loss. Her three sons, Morris, Robert and Frank, and her' daughter, Mrs. F. O. Barbadoes, and her' husband, the choice of her youth and the solace of her age, have our sympathy in' their bereavement.
Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 29 December 1865
We commence on our first page the address of John Mercer Langston, Esq., of j Ohio, before the Colored Men's Convention |of Indiana. Mr. Langston is a lawyer eminent in his profession, and a gentleman of superior education, refined manners, and acknowledged ability. He is nearly white, and one of that class who, in the State of Ohio, are allowed to vote, being neither " negro nor mulatto," having the extra drop of Caucasian blood in his veins.— Notwithstanding, Mr. Langston exercise his right with disfavor, dooming it more a degradation than an honor. The Address, which we copy from the Indiana Stale Gazette, published at Indianapolis, is almost too long for our columns, and wc had intended only publishing extracts from it, but we find it so apposite to the present occasion that we are constrained to give the whole of it. It occuj pies so much space that we will continue I it until finished, which will be in three sucj cossive numbers of The Elevator. | Major Stratman presented us a...

COMMUNICATION S. [for the Elevator J The Pacific Railroad. By .'i resolution of the lute Convention of colored citizens of this State, a Committee was appointed to ask the co-opera-tion of the railroad companies in procuring the labor of from twenty to forty thousand freedmen to complete this great National enterprise. How shall this be done ? is the first question to be settled. There are now many thousands of unemployed freedmen in the Southern States, ■ who would be only too happy to obtain employment at reasonable remuneration, j and especially where they would assured | protection to life and liberty, which as yet lis not guaranteed them in their native States. There are twenty thousand now in Texas who could be marched on the ; route before Spriug, whose labor would be I eagerly sought for by farmers, miners and others(if not immediately on the railroad), at wages both advantageous to the employers and beneficial to themselves.— Hundreds of families are anxious to pro- ! cure ...
For The Elevator. Something Interesting to Loyal Men. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 29 December 1865
For The Elevator. Something Interesting to Loyal Men. l T p»n the arrival of every steamer from Mexico to this port, comes one or more of that outraged class who have forfeited all immunities of citizenship ; they mingle with the passing crowd unnoticed by any one, and very soon are again in some shape rendering aid to the enemies of the Government; A very short time since, Thomas J. Lesprege, formerly of Stockton, and once a leading Democratic member in the California Legislature, who went, to join the rebellion and done some service, returned via Mazatlan, once more to feed upon the credulity of those who had oi; e confided in his integrity—and now with bra/.&amp;n efi'rontry comes the son of that public robber, John 15. Floyd, Buchanan's Secretary of War, and who himself, as if to complete the hellish iustincts of his disgraced father, was recently an officer on board the pirate Florida. The advent of these worthies may escape attention, from the fact, that to avoid notic...
