FREEDMEN S~*COMMISSION [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 16 February 1866

FREEDMEN S~*COMMISSION We are sorry to see such articles as the following, depreciating this very necessary aud laudable organization, in the Santa Cruz Sentinel. This is a sound Union paper | and generally expresses liberal sentiments, but we fear it is imbibing the Call's idea of a " white man's country." This argument was used during the war by the Copperhead press against the Sanitary and Christian Commissions, and it was pronounced treasonable by all loyal Union papers. The objects of those organizations were to aid the Government, and the ' Freedmen's Commission has the same object in view. These associations are not encumbered by red tape and useless routine ; they work silently and effectirely. We are in favor of rendering "aid and assistance to poor whites," and blacks also, and the Freedmen's Commission does not interfere with charity at h®me. It will doubtless render as much aid to the poor whites of the South as to the black freedmen, and by all accounts the former are a...

School Examination in Santa Roea. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 16 February 1866

School Examination in Santa Roea. We have received the following communications, describing the examination of the colored school in Santa Rosa. This school is now in charge of Miss A. E. Vincent, whom all acknowledge is a very capable and efficient teacher. We publish the communications with pleasure, and only wish there were more of the same sort. Santa Rosa, Fob. 11, 186(5. Mr. Editor :—Permit me through your columns to express the gratification 1 experienced at an examination of the colored school iu Santa Rosa, on Tuesday, February Cth, taught by Miss A. E. Vincent. This is the second examination of the colored school in this place I have attended within the past year,—the first being taught by Mr. Atnos Johnson, and if pleased with the first (which I was), I was no less delighted with the second ; and whilst Mr. Johnson laid the foundation, the superstructure has rapidly advanced under the able and evidently indefatigable zeal o Miss Vincent, to whom too much praise cannot be ...

Nevada Moving. Wo received from "Orion," our attentive correspondent at Virginia City, the I following Memorial and Address from tie [colored citizens of Nevada, presented to 'the Legislature of that State, praying for ; the removal of the disabilities under which they labor. The Address is a model j document. It is short, but it says all that |is necessary. It is pointed, and includes all that the occasion requiers.

Wealthy Colored Men. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 16 February 1866

Wealthy Colored Men. A few months ago an article was published in the New York Citizen, professing j to give a description of the wealthy color-; ed meu of that city. We did not copy it, j for while some of the statements were cor-, reet, we knew it was in the main false— | evidently intended as a burlesque, with just enough truth to deceive. The follow-j ing from the Philadelphia Saturday Night' we believe is nearer the truth, and not so highly colored as the other. We are per-, sonally acquainted with nearly all the gentlemen mentioned herein, and can in j fact vouch for the correctness : Have any Philadelphia readers of Saturday Night, seen on our streets, or driving j out uuaccouipanied 011 an afternoon, on j any of onrsuburban drives, a tall, straight, j large-framed mulatto, of about sixty-five years of age, who wears spectacles, and is, very plain in appearance? If so, it is barely possible that they have seen Rev. I Stephen Smith, who is said to be the; wealthiest colored ma...

TELEGRAPHIC SUMMARY. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 16 February 1866

TELEGRAPHIC SUMMARY. New York, Feb. 7.—The following is a portion of Napoleon's speech to the Corps Legislative, on the 23d of January: '•As I expressed the hope last year that our expedition to Mexico was approaching a termination. I am coining to an understanding with Maxamilan to fix the epoch for the recall of our troops, without compromising French interests, which we have been defending in that remote coun try. 'The United States of North America, issuing victoriously from her late struggle, has re-established the union of the States, and proclaimed slavery dead. France, which forgoes no page of her history, off. rs up hr sincere wishes for the prosperity of the American Republic, and for the maintenance of amicable relations, which soon will have had ccuturies duration. "The emotion produced in the United States by the presence of our troops on Mexican soil, will be pacified by the frankness of our declarations. The American people will comprehend that our expedition, to whic...

THE TWO HAROLDS. A Scrap of History. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 23 February 1866

THE TWO HAROLDS. A Scrap of History. FKJHT FOR A CROWN IN THE ELEVENTH CENTURY —SAXON AND NORWEGIAN. [concluded.] Hut Harold was a most critical skald, j as we have seen, and these verses, in the' old simple metre, were not to his mind 'No,' he said, 'that was a badly made song; I must sing another better,' and with that he sung : ' Come! each warrior to the field ; Never creep behind your shield! Where the onslaught rageth highest Odin's arm is ever nighest j She, the maid that winneth battles, Hade me bear my head on high, AVh( re no brainpan sword-blade rattles, There ta win the day or die." When Harold ceased, Thiodolf, his skald, took up the strain, and chanted: ' Though the King him?elf should fall— God forfend—but God knows all— Never fl)ing with disgrace Will I leave his royal race j For the sun in upper air Never shown on fairer pair j Noble eaglets, breathing ire, Worthy to avenge their sire.' Just before the battle began, Brand Gunsteinn's son, the Icelander, who alone j ...

Governor Yates. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 23 February 1866

Governor Yates. A friend in Illinois sends a story of Senator, liite Governor, Yates of that State, which should become historical in his honor. By the "black laws" of Illinois, lately repealed, free negroes, or, as the law expressed it, "free people of color," when found in that State, were liable to arrest and sale. Under this law two personwere arrested about two years since, and convicted of the crime of being " people of color." They were sold, one for fiftyfive, and the other for ninety-nine years. A prominent lawyer in the town (the names are given us), believing the law to be unconstitutional, appealed the case, becoming security for the costs, to the Supremo Court, which declared the law constitutional, and that the convicted persons who had been temporarily released by the lawyer's action, should be returned to the buyers. The offenders, however, had meanwhile left the State, and the lawyer found himself liable for a large sum. He reflected for some time, and finally repai...

Alexander Hamilton. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 23 February 1866

Alexander Hamilton. W hat strikes us most forcibly, in considering Hamilton's career, is the remarkably early development of his powers.— At thirteen he was found competent to take charge of a mercantile establishment. At fifteen, his writings won for him public applause and the aid of friends. At seventeen, he addressed with great success a public meeting. At eighteen, his anonymous productions are attributed to some of the leading men of America. At nineteen he lias thought out the principle of government which is indelibly associated with his name. At twenty, he has not only approved himself a skilful and courageous soldier, but he has won the esteem of the grave and reserved Washington, and is placed by that great man in a post of the closest confidence, and which really makes him the second man in the American service. At twenty-one, he has shown that he in master of the intricate subject of finance. At twenty-five, after an active military life that had allowed no time for stu...
