ATT) for the freedmen [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 26 January 1866
ATT) for the freedmen Among the various questions which) ni.w, and will perhaps for generations, oc-j cupy the minds of the American people, i there is none of more importance, and j none on which the future welfare of the j country depends, than the condition of the freedmen. Their education, and mental,! as well as their political training, is as necessary as their physical training — They must of course be self-dependent, and should become self-reliant. They must be taught that society, of which they have now become an integral part, expects them to take their share of the burdens as well as the benefits of civilizai tion. They have hitherto only participated in the former; they arc now to enjoy the latter also. But with these come also new cares and responsibilities, and of these, the freedmen should be made aware, as they doubtless will be. To effect these i desirable objects, " all the distinctive soci- | eties in the United States, interested in I the care and education of th...

SUPPORT YOUR PAPERS [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 26 January 1866
SUPPORT YOUR PAPERS There are several papers edited by colored men, which, from that circum- j stance alone requires our united patro-! nage.

«»l — The President and the Freedmeut [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 26 January 1866
«»l — The President and the Freedmeut We have not been among,those who; I have denounced President Johnson for his \ reconstruction policy ; while we disap-, prove of his course, and his almost indisJ criminate pardoning of rebels, we believe lie is sincere, and thinks he is pursuing j | the best course to produce tranquility atj i the South, and for the welfare and protection of the freedmen. We differ with him. We think he is mistaken, but we also | think he is honest. We must consider i that Andrew Johnson was reared under different influences from Abraham Lincoln. He has not the wisdom nor judgment, neither has he the unflinching hero-; ism of that great man ; but we believe, as far as his judgment goes, he is equally j as honest. The following extracts from the speech !of General Fisk, in Brooklyn, giving the : opinions of men whom we know are our friends, and in whom we cau place confidence, confirms us in our opinion of his integrity : "The President said to me yesterday • l'...

Celebration in Marysville January Ist The Emancipation Celebration in Marysville was under the auspices of the Executive Committee. We have received the following account : It proved to be quite a success. All business in the city was suspended, especially with our people. We met at the Methodist Church at 2 o'clock, r m. Oar President, E. P. Duplex, in the chair. The Rev. Thomas E. Randolph delivered an appropriate invocation. The President gave us a very impressive introductory, well worthy of himself.

CLANTON, OF BENICXA. ** | I ; Roll back, roll back, O ruthless waves of time, : Clear the dark vista where thy billows climb, | And let us feast our longing eyes once more On Freedom's Chieftain on that far-off shore. Throw wide thy portals, O, Eternity, I Let him look on the wreck of slavery, ; Let him review his glorious work again— , His land redeemed from thraldom's fulsome stain.

The Colored Congress. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 26 January 1866
The Colored Congress. The delegation of colored gentlemen from the various portions of the country to be in attendance upon Congress at Washington during the winter, in endeavor to secure equality before the law for the colored people, is exciting a great deal of attention and remark. By the kindness of Mr. George T. Downing, of this city, we are enabled to publish some facts in regard to this matter not yet made public. Mr. Downing is to represent all New England, having been selected as thejone delegate for that purpose. His qalifications for the duty are of a very high order. He is possessed of real executive abilty. is shrewd and persevering, aud possesses j a good knowledge of human nature, and J knows well, too, how to make the most ofj it. His well known qualifications as a: niau of more than ordinary mark, combine I to point him out as the most proper man I who could have been selected for the po- j sitiou which he has been called upon to' fill.

For The Elevator. Answer to "Paddle Your Own Canoe.' [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 26 January 1866
For The Elevator. Answer to "Paddle Your Own Canoe.' BY MADGE. i Oh ! 1 paddled my own canoe Full many a weary year, Praying the gods to woo My bark from the tempest drear— For old Neptune ruled the «ea, Aud the skies were dark and cold, While he laughed in merry glee At the white-caps he unrolled. My boat, but a speck on the wave, Oft hid by the foaming mist— Now sinking to unknown caves, Now rising the clouds to kiss. No light-house of hope could I too, No one to shield me from woe ; And I knew that the way must be Lined deep with the rocks below. Twai useless the winds to defy, They sang but a louder air; My voice it seemed as a sigh Breathed out in the faintest despair— I A waif on the ocean of life, No rudder or sail to guide, I must sink in the toil and strife, Or drift with the moaning tide. And thousands around me the same, Were "paddling their own caaoe." Like the " lone tree " on the plains, They had braved the lightning too — The sea bird's song was a wail, !. But whisper...

TELEGRAPHIC SUMMARY. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 26 January 1866
TELEGRAPHIC SUMMARY. Washington, Jan. 16—The owners of a building at Wyandotte, Maryland, in •which is held a colored school, notified the teacher of the school a few dajs ago that it would have to be closed, as the I laws of Maryland prohibited the educa tion of colored children. The teacher informed General Thomas of the fact, and he directed him to continue his school as heretofore. On Saturday a bloody encounter took place in Richmond, Kentucky, by which several persons lost their lives, and others will probably die. The difficulty originated in a political feud. The fight occurred in front of the Court House, and was participated in by eight persons. Over sixty shots were fired, and every belligerent was cither killed or wounded. The end will be the death of five. New York, Jan. 17.—The Fenian imbroglio continues. The O'Mahoney Congress has adjourned.
