Latter from Boston. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 19 January 1866

Latter from Boston. Boston, Mass., Doc. 2d. Mb. Editor : —I closed my first letter by saying " I go to Boston on the 31st ; " and in accordance therewith T boarded the j cars this morning at 10 o'clock for this city. After two hours steaming away' through an extensive granite, wood and hay bearing tract of couutry, dotted with several line and thrifty towns, wc found ourselves in the depot of renowned city of Boston, where Bunker llill monument pre- i gents itself in all its lofty grandeur to re- i mind you of the mighty deeds of the Heroes of '16. Boston is a beautiful city, and is re-! markable for its magnificent Common, the J fresh appearance and regularity of its I buildings, the cleanliness of its streets, as well as the diversity of directions in which they run. One not accustomed to city i life would be more readily lost in Boston j than in New York. I called on Dr. Win.

[For the Elevator ] PADDLE YOUR OWN CANOE. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 19 January 1866

[For the Elevator ] PADDLE YOUR OWN CANOE. BX J. MADISON BELL. A red Chief dwelling near a lake, Beneath a vernal sky, Felt soon his hold on life must break, And he lay down and die. He called around his wigwam door His warriors brave and true, And gave to each a tiny oar, Saying, "paddle your own canoe." "For I, your Chief, who taught the bow, And how to poise the dart,— And how the bearded shaft to throw, With every useful art— Am full of years, and cannot stand As I were wont to do ; I soon must try the spirit land, So paddle your own canoe." Then lowly bowed each warrior's head, And a deep, long sigh he drew, And started forth with measured tread To paddle his own canoe. Hi gh rose the waves on either side, — Loud screamed the wild sea mew! But naught could daunt their warrior pride, They paddled their own canoe. O'er rugged hights they onward sped, And mazy forests through, And whereso e'er their duty led They paddled their own canoe. When omens dark hung o'er their way, And da...

TELEGRAPHIC SUMMARY. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 19 January 1866

TELEGRAPHIC SUMMARY. New York, Jan. 11.—The Herald's Washington special dispatch says that Dr. Bacon, behalf of the faculty of Y ale Collenge, is reported to have sent a communication to Mr. Speaker Colfax, requesting the House not to array itself against the reconstruction policy of the President. The rumors of an impending Cabinet reconstruction, which have pervaded in well informed circles for a week past, arc believed to have more foundation in fact than usually portains to such reports. The President is known to be anxiously awaiting the European mail, to know whether Mr. Adams proposed an immediate return from London. This, taken in connection with other small straws, is believed to indicate the coursc of the coming breeze. The World's Washington special dispatch says a bill has been drawn by a very distinguished lawyer of Washington, which will be offered in Congress at an early day, for the reorganization of the Supreme Court of the United States, so as to reduce the number ...

The sense of justice which has been awakened in the nation by the rebellion will not rest satisfied to have forgiven rebels who have fought to overthrow the Government, and drive away loyal black soldiers who have fought to sustain it, It is not necessary at first that all should vote. You can allow those who can read and write to vote; or you can allow black soldiers to vote. The privilege...

Incidents of Aniietam. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 26 January 1866

Incidents of Aniietam. e take the following incidents of the battle of Antietam from " The Field, the Dungeon and the Escape," by A. D. Richardson : " My confrere and myself were within a few yards of Hooker. It was a very hot place. We could not distinguish the 'ping' of the individual bulletn, but their Combined and mingled hum was like the din of a great Lowell factory. Solid shot and shell came shrieking through the air, but over our heads, as we were on the extreme front. Hooker, — common-place before, —the j moment he heard the guns, loomed up | into gigantic stature. His eye gleamed j with the grand anger of battle. He seemed to know exactly what to do, to feel that he was master of the situation, and to impress every one else with the fact. Turning to one of his staff, and pointing to a spot near us, he said : " Go and tell Captain to bring his battery and plant it there at once !' The lieutenant rode away. After giving one or two further orders with great clearness, rapidit...

Death of a Son of the Poet Burns. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 26 January 1866

Death of a Son of the Poet Burns. The poet Burns died in 1796, and the living links which connect him with the present generation are becoming fewer and fewer every year. His son, Lieut. Col. James Glencairn Burns, died Nov 19th, at Cheltenham, England, in his 72d year. Colonel Burns was the youngest son of the poet, by Jean Armour, the daughter of a respectable mason at Mauchline, whose name her illustrious husband has intertwined with his own, and so immortalized ; as for instance : A» in i he bosom of the stream The moonbeam dwels at dewy e'«n, So trembling pur# is tender love Within the breast of bonnie Jean. He was named James Glencairn, after James, late Earl of Glencairn, the poet's life long friend, of whom, in one of his most touching poems, he says : The monarch may forget the crown That on his head an hour has been ; The husband may forget the bride Was made his wedded wife yestreen; The mother may forget the babe That smile* sae sweetly on her knee, But I'll remember the...

Don't Judge by Appearances. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 26 January 1866

Don't Judge by Appearances. Some years ago there arrived at the hotel erected near the Niagara Falls an odd looking man, whose appearance and deportment were quite in contrast with the crowds of well dressed and polished fig ures which adorned the celebrated resort. He seemed just to have sprung from the woods; Ids dress, which was made of leather, stood dreadfully in need of re pair, apparently not having felt the touch I of a needlewoman for many a long month. < A worn out blanket, that might have served for a bed, was buckled to his shoulders ; a large knife hung on one side • balanced by a long, rusty tin box on the' other, and his beard, uncropped, tangled and coarse, fell down upon his bosom, as i if to counterpoise the weight of the thick dark locks that supported themselves on 1 his back and shoulders. This strange be ing to the spectators, seemingly half civi- 1 lized, half savage, had a quick, glancing 1 eye, and elastic, firm movement, that would, no doubt, win...
