ORATION, Delivered at the Celebration of the Third Anniversary of President Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation, on the l.s'&lt; of January, 18G6, in Sacramento, by Rev. James ll.llubbakd. Mr. President, Friends and Fel* low Citizens:—lt with feelings of joy, mingled with regret, I rise to address you en the present occasion—joy that such an auspicious day has dawned upon us—regret, that it has not fallen to the lot of an abler speaker to animate you by the fire of oratorical genius. Solemn and weighty are the responsibilities that rest upon every American patriot, Great and comprehensive are the questions discussed to-day throughout the length and breadth of this Union. The early history of our country, how replete with evidences of Providential care. Her struggles with despots in a protracted war ; the unceas-! ing devotion of the Revolutionary fathers, their determiHed resistance to tyranny, and the stubborn bravery of their warriors, became the redeeming features of thei...

PRINTING OFFICE. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 2 February 1866
PRINTING OFFICE. We want to raise, by loan, the sum of five I hundred dollars, to purchase material for a printing office. With tho above sum we can j purchase sufficient printing material, type, etc., ; to print Tiie Elevator, and also to do all j kinds of job printing. We can save on The ! Elevator alone enough to repay the loan with j interest in nine months. If twenty individuals will loan us twenty-five , dollars each, we will give sufficient security for j repayment. We want to commence with the , second volume, ne*t April. tp-jf An editor is expected to know everything, and to give correct answers on every subject ; but he requires references. It is not so, but he should know where to find an answer on all subjects. Last week an inquiry was made of us, and on professing our inability to answer from memory, considerable surprise was expressed. We stated that if we had a certain book we could answer that and other questions, and it would be of great use to us in our editorial d...
GRAND UNITED ORDER OF ODD FELLOWS. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 2 February 1866
GRAND UNITED ORDER OF ODD FELLOWS. This fraternity celebrated the 22d Anniversary of the introduction of the Order in the United States, in the city of Baltimore on the 6th of October last. This order is composod of colored men, and is a branch of the 0. U. 0. of 0. F. of England, whose headquarters are at Leeds. If differs but little from the I. 0. of 0. F. ; their principles being the same. There is some difference in their degrees, the manner of working, and in their government, but so slight as to be almost immaterial. There is a striking similarity between the introduction of Masonary and Odd Fellowship among colored men in the United States. Both had their origin in the same cause, i. e., the refusal of the white members of those orders to admit colored men into their Lodges, or to grant them charters to found separate Lodges ; both obtained their charters from England, and Loth were procured by the same class of nien—stewards running between American and English ports.

THE FREEDMENS MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 2 February 1866
THE FREEDMENS MEETING. This meeting on Monday evening at ; Piatt's .Ilall, was an emphatic endorsement of the policy of the Republican par;ty as regards tho course to be pursued relative to the frcedmen. A few Copperheads and malignants (vide Morning I Call), may grumble, but the moral and religious sentiment of the State is in favor of educating and protecting the freedmen in their rights, and granting them means of support by their own labor, and the political sentiment will soon follow. Our space will not admit of our giving more than a brief allusion. The full proceedings have been published in the daily papers. Letters were read from Gov. Low, Speaker Yule, Hon. J. J. Owen, Revs. Dr. | J. E. Dwindle, J. .T. Moore and other em- | inent gentlemen, all pledging their hearty co-operation and support to the Freeiimen's I Commission. The report of the committee on organization, was read by Rev. 0. C. Wheeler, general agent for the Pacific coast, who also explained the intents, object...
The Morning Call Again. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 2 February 1866
The Morning Call Again. Our readers must excuse us for noticing the Morning Call so often, but it professes to be the poor man's paper, the organ, par excellence, of the working classes, but it is more directly the organ of the lowest class of our populatiou—the i vicious and the ignorant. It appeals to their prejudices, and endeavors to excite and inflame those prejudices against everything which appertains to the benefit of the colored people. In last Sunday's issue of that paper, there !s a long leading article ou the meeling of the Freedmen's Commission called forou Monday evening. It is greatly distressed to think that twenty thousand dollars may be raised to aid the freedmen, and thinks that sum could be better appropriated in educating poor white children in this State. The State provides bountifully for the education of white children, and .colored also, if the school laws were just and equitable ; but that is irrevelant to the point at issue. The Freedmen's Commission asks ...
A Chance for Universal Suffrage. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 2 February 1866
A Chance for Universal Suffrage. Washington, Jan. 31st. —The amendment to the Constitution as originally submitted, providing that the representation shall be in proportion with the actual number of votes in each State, and omitting the proposition of direct taxation, passed the House to-day by a majority of 74. Ayes, 120; noes, 46 —more than j two-thirds voting in the affirmative. There is immense enthusiasm ingThe above is the latest telegraphic dispatch—an appropriate closing of the second month of Congressional labor. It may not immediately receive the confirmation of the requisite number of States, but in a few years it will be confirmed, and then State governments will necessarily, to increase their representation, have to increase their voters. Mr. Editor:—ln the last issue of The Elevator, yourself with many others are very anxious to know what the " Acting lioard of the State Executive Committee are doing;" and not content to urge your enquiry, are pleased assuered to make ...
For the Elevator. THE CHRISTMAS BELLS. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 2 February 1866
For the Elevator. THE CHRISTMAS BELLS. BY ADA L. LEVERE. Hark! the Christmas bells are chiming, And their tones so sweet and clear, Seem like distant voices breathing Fairy music on the air. Breathing strains of joyous music, So entrancing to my ear That I listen half unconscious, For I can but choose to hear. The snow flakes are softly falling Close around my cottage door, And the winter bringeth nothing But distress unto the poor. "While the wintry winds are whistling Through the branches of the trees, And their deep and solemn echoes Fall in words which seem like these: "Murmuring mortal! life's a journey That wo all must travel through ; Great and small alike have missions, Which on earth they'er called to do. And if faithfully they labor— If they strive to do the right, God's own presence shall go with them, And his word shall be their light. And when all life's tasks are ended, Then forever they shall rest In the realms of the immortal, In the City of the Blest."
From the American Elaj?. •THE PROGRESS OF LIBERTY," [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 2 February 1866
From the American Elaj?. •THE PROGRESS OF LIBERTY," A Poem, hy J. Madison Bell, delivered January 1. 1806, at Zion Church, San Francisco, at the Celebration of the Third Anniversary of President Lincoln's Proclamation. We have received a copy of the above poem from the author. It is in the shape of a neatly printed pamphlet of 28 pages. Mr. Bell is not a mere writer of verse ; he is a poet, and a good ! one, too. He is a peer of the best poetic wri- 1 ters in this State, notwithstanding he belongs | to that race which an ignorant and wicked | prejudice would debar from the rights of citi-, zenship. Without entering into an elaborate | review of the poem, which we have read with much interest, we say most emphatically, with the author, that "the ballot is the rightful due" ! of those swarthy troops who bravely fought in defence of the nation.—San Jose Mercury, January 18, 1866. Hon. J. J. Owen, Editor San Jose Mercury— Dear Sir : To be thus complimented, And thus nobly presented, By ...
Condition ot Freedmen in South Carolina. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 2 February 1866
Condition ot Freedmen in South Carolina. All agent writing from South Carolina to the Frecdmen's Bureau says : "Many lines have been levied on the whiles fur knocking down "niggers." It is a new order of things. They pay with poor grace. We have sent twelve cases before military commissions, all of them crimes ; murder four, assault with intent to kill, eight. If a man attack a negro with a whip or cat-o'nine tails, we try him for assult; and if he beats severly, we put in with intent to kill. Two murder cases have been tried, and in each one the sentence has been a mere farce. A woman—a lovely young lady of good family—shot in cold blood a negro. The murder w t as proved a brutal one of the first degree. The sentence was $1,000 tine. Black makes a distinction in some men's minds, that destroy all sense of right wild justice. A man shot a negro dead. The negro had taken a horse to ride. White man shouldered his gun and started in the same direction and met the negro coming home with...
