THE VETO. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 23 February 1866
THE VETO. As we feared, President Johnson Ims j vetoed the Freednien's Bureau Bill, thus | leaving not only the colored people, but i all Unionists and Northern men, whether white or colored, to the tender mercies of ; non-repentant rebels, exasperated l»y deI feat, and raging for revenge. This bill j was the only safety the former classes had I against the persecutions which are daily perpetrated upon them ; it defended their j Constitutional rights, and protected them | against assassination, robbery, and all the outrages to which they are subjected ; and I the President deliberately denies them proj toction—takes from them their only safeguard. lie well knows the l&gt;ill is not on'y | just and proper, but that it is strictly ConI stitutional, notwithstanding he asserts the contrary. In his veto, if reported correcti ly by telegraph, he says : " The Constituj tion imperatively declares that each State shall be represented in Congress," and because they are not, he infers ...
CELEBRATIONS ON EMANCIPATION DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 23 February 1866
CELEBRATIONS ON EMANCIPATION DAY. The Anniversary of Emancipation Day ! was celebrated with great enthusiasm in (he Eastern States. We copy tin; following from a Buffalo paper, of the manner in which it was celebrated in that city.— | Among the speakers on the occasion we notice the venerable l'eyton Harris, an old resident of Buffalo, and one whose whole life has been devoted to the welfare of his race. Mr. Harris, we believe, is a Virginian by birth, but has lived in Buffalo over forty years, and must now be full seventy years old. We became acquainted with liiui in 1524, and although then quite young we retain a grateful and lively remembrance of the hospitable entertainment which the youthful invalid received from him; his kind and genial | companionship, tender care, and friendly ; counsel are as vividly in our mind as 'twere yesterday. We arc pleased to learn that God has given him health and strength to raise his voice in behalf of freedom as of yore. While speaking of Father...
[For the Elevator ] " Watchman, What of the Night" [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 23 February 1866
[For the Elevator ] " Watchman, What of the Night" Some forty years ago it was the custom with the night-watch in certain portions I of Virginia to note the weather, or any extraordinary occurrence, when crying | the hour, in the following manner : "Oh, ho ! Oh, ho ! Past one o'clock, and a cloudy morning." This was doubtless following that memorable event of the nightwatch of the Revolutionary era, who, in Miis own peculiar way, announced the hour | and the glorious news of the victory which j decided the contest: " Oh, ho I oh, ho f | past 12 o'clock, and Cornwall is is taken." Hut, Mr. Editor, we have been noticing the political horizon, and regarding you | as our watchman, we inquire "What of I the night?" High hopes have been I awakened, new and holy aspirations j prompting great deeds, and promising j great results, are for the moment covered with darkness doubly intensified. Again our paying people are retiring iuto their closets, and appealing to the (rod of Abraham to avert...
Letter from Oregon. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 23 February 1866
Letter from Oregon. Salem, Oregon, Feb. 8, 18GG. Mr. Editor We were much pleased to receive four numbers of your paper, i The Elevator, and while acknowledging the receipt of your valuable sheet, also concluded to give you a few items from this section of Oregon, if they will be acceptable. This is one of the most promising and beautifully situated cities in this State— comprising a population of about twentyfive hundred ; the majority are emigrants from the New England States. The colored portion of the community number about twenty-eight souls—including in that number, six families—all industrious people— good citizens. One of this number represents several thousand dollars, and is a good mechanic. They have made some very rich discoveries of quartz within 65 or 70 miles of this city, which are causing quite a stir among those who invest in that kind of stock. The colored people of Salem made a fine demonstration Jan Ist., in honor of the glorious Proclamation of Emancipation, at ...
Letter from New Orleans. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 23 February 1866
Letter from New Orleans. New. Ori.eaxb, Jan. 8, 18G0. Mr. Editor —W r o had a long passage of for*y-two days from San Francisco to Now York, by the Nicaragua route, but we arrived safe at last. While in New York I attended a public mooting, called to raise moans to send a delegate to Washington to look after the interests of the colored people, and to represent our cause before the assembled wisdom of the Nation. Frederick Douglass was selected, and a better representative could not be found. T contributed my mite, and they have my earnest wishes for success. 1 met several of my old friends in New York— many of whom inquired after you and other fiiends in California. I am moving around on my own hook, to examine the commercial condition of the country, and the result of things in the seceding States. Commerce throbs along the fiscal nerve and binds communities together, both by principal and interests. Strange to say, in South Carolina (that is, in Charleston) there seems to be a be...

Moore, a young lady from s New Hampshire, is the queen of the skaters. 1 have|seen the great Taglaoni, and Fanny Elisor, in the corps do ballet at the grand opera in Loudon ; each of these ' celebrated characters were remarkable for i their ease, grace and agility. Taglaoni! was my favorite.

At almost any time during office hours, may be seen in the long passsages of the Interior Department, a person who at a Id.stance in the dim light might be taken, | by his r.oble form, firm and deliberate 'step, to be a treat Senator or some dis tinguished personage. Hut, as you near him, he is found to be as some would express it, '• Nothing but a nigger." You would discover, howevt r, at once, that there was Anglo Saxcn blood in his biing. As he might lave a bundle of "Pub. Doc." tied up with red tape in his hand, your cuiiosity might be awakened to know who he might be. This, d&gt;ar reader, is Paul Jones Jennings E-q. 1 take the liberty of addii g the Esq. on my own re...
