Negro Testimony. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 21 July 1865

Negro Testimony. j Wccopy the following from the ?acra- ! mento Bee f of the 6th inst,, as relevant 1 to the present issue. It will serve as a future record whereby we can judge of ; the progress of public opinion : 1 Editors Bee:—As the status of the ! colored population has created considera- | ble discussion and local excitement, a reference to past records «annot but be useful, and may, perhaps, by doing jusj tice, relieve some from false positions in ! the eyes of some people. It will be remembered that prior to 1 18G3 a negro or mulatto could not give 1 evidence in any case where a white person was a party. The Civil Practice Act | read as follows : '• Sec. 394. The following persons shall not be witnesses : * * * 3d. , * * * Negroes, or persons having one-half or more of negro blood, in any action or proceeding to which a white person is a party." The Act concerning Crimes and Punishments read as follows: " Sec. 14. No black or mulatto person * * # shall be permitted to give ...

THE PACIFIC RAILROAD. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 21 July 1865

THE PACIFIC RAILROAD. This is one of the objects in which California is particularly interested, and completion is earnestly desired by all parties. It is not only California that will be benefited by the speedy completion of this gigantic enterprise, but the whole Pacific coast, including tlie English and Russian possessions, as well as the American States and Territories, the vast continent which bounds the western verge of our mighty ocean ; the multitudinous Is lands which lie upon its bosom, whose un-j explored wealth of the mineral and vege- 1 table kingdoms will be difused throughout the civilized world ; even South America and the far-distant continent of Australia will alike participate in the benefits which j will accrue from the Pacific Railroad. In fact, its advantages to the world and to mankind are incalculable, and its completion should be urged forward with all possible dispatch. But the great question now under discussion is, how is it to be completed?— From what so...

Miss Angela Starr King [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 21 July 1865

Miss Angela Starr King We attended the first Poetic reading by this lady on Tuesday evening, and were j delighted with the exhibition of talent she displayed. We consider Poetic and I Dramatic reading as the higher phase of the elocutionary art, as acting is the | lowest. A good dramatic reader would | excel in any of the different professions where elocution is required; and a good j poetic reader, one who can catch as it were by inspiration the ideas of the author, must needs be' a poet. This, M iss King does, and it is 110 small! praise to say she does it well. Had she ! not, we would not have considered herj first appearance a failure. In a strange j place, with an audience of twelve or fifteen hundred people, a ball with whose j acoustic arrangements she was unacquainted, her success was a complete triumph. Miss King caught the range of the hall in her first piece, and during the hour and j a half she was reading, every word was j I heard distinctly, from the lowest sound, ! al...

Literature and Art [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 21 July 1865

Literature and Art We believe we won't go to Roman's depot of literature again; it makes us break the tenth commandment; we covet half the books in the establishment; and then a couple of hours glide away like moments, when we get hold of some old friend done up beautifully in morocco and gilding. The Art Union is another favorite lounging place, when we have a few hours leisure. An afternoon's visit to these places amply repay us for a week of toil. There are paintings at the Art Union well deserving the criticism of a connoisseur, to which we cannot pretend. We will, however, notice a few which particularly attracted our attention: "The Manger," by Raphael Mengs, a very old painting, is the finest painting in the gallery; the coloring is effective, and the light and shade well displayed. No. 151, "A Flock of Sheep," by Rosa ; Bonheur, probably one of the early paint--1 ings of this artist, but exhibiting all the ; fidelity to nature which lias made her famous as a painter of domes...

Letter from Bishop Campbell. Philadelphia, June Bth, 1865. Rf.v. T. M. I). Ward—Dear Brother*: I am happy to inform you that 1 reached my homo and friends, by the kind providence of God, May 15th, 1865. I found I the Annual Conference in session, and im- | mediately entered upon the duties of my office, without having one day of rest I since that hour.

COMMUNICATIONS [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 21 July 1865

COMMUNICATIONS Misunderstood. Mr. Editor : —I wish to set myself right on one or two points in my communication on "The Enemies of the American Republic," which appeared in your last issue. Ist. If our language could be so construed, we did not mean to say that all the adopted citizens of the United States were disloyal, or were controlled indiscriminately by the press and monetary power, wielded by aliens, in connivance with American traitors in the country who would overthrow the Republic. We believe there are naturalized citizens loyal to the Government, who are among the true Union men—who wish to see the Republic perpetuated—though we believe they are among the smallest number. The reason for this belief is that naturalized foreigners mostly belong and stick to the Democratic party—Union or no Union. And, further, because seven-tenths of the adopted citizens of the United States act in opposition to the great fundamental principles of the Republic as expressed in the Declaratio...

DEFERRED ARTICLES. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 21 July 1865

DEFERRED ARTICLES. Loyal Butchers. In this land of free speech and free press, no man should be persecuted for! his opinions; as long as he is loyal to the ' Government, and has a due regard for private character, and preserves that \ morality of conduct which is incumbent on all for the well being of seciety, we hold that no one should be denounced for the exercise of his opinions; but we also, maintain that we should favor those whose opinions coincide with our own, and whose public actions are in accordance with their opinions. We should give our custom to tradesmen and others who, iu spite of a fancied puplic opinion, give evidence of their devotion to Freedom and Equal Rights. We give below the names of the i Butchers of this city who were not afraid nor ashamed to turn out in the procession on the 4th instant, because the colored people joined in the celebration on that glorious occasion. We denominate them " Loyal Butchers," not but that others may be equally loyal, but they ...

An Incident of the Celebration of the Fourth of July in this City. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 21 July 1865

An Incident of the Celebration of the Fourth of July in this City. Among the ladies who gathered in attentive groups within the magnificent windows of the Occidental Hotel, while the procession was passing through Montgomery street on " the Fourth," was one who saluted the colored portion of the triumphal pageant, smiling down upon the uncovered heads of the happy freedmen while she waved her white 'kerchief with great enthusiasm and tenderness of expression.— 'Twas Angela Starr King, Starr King's < sister, just come from New England by way of the sea beyond Panama. Little Fritzie King, born in San Francisco, no} quite three years old, was there too, and he waved his tiny flag over the dusky figures as they passed. Fritzie was in charge of that faithful Katrina, the same nurse who received the final injunction from the lips of the father, dying, "Take good care of Fritzie, Katrina." Fritzie wore the indentical silken scarf of red,j white and blue with which the father, tw...
