The Freedmsn. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 2 March 1866
The Freedmsn. The Freed men's Commission had a large and enthusiastic meeting Thursday evening, 22d inst., at l'latt's Ilall. It was a fitting celebration of Washington's birth-j day. Colonel Hawkins, of Tennessee, de-j livered one of the ablest speeches we ever heard; it was full of patriotic fire, lie j depicted in glowing terms the sufferings of Unionists and freedtnen in Tennessee, audi showed clearly what the rebels would do j if they bad the power which President Johnson is willing to give them. lie also showed the necessity for continuing the Freedinen's Bureau, and why the power of the Bureau should be increased. He deprecated the action of President John-, son in vetoing the bill, and declared the Executive had falsified his former professions in so doing. Governor Low presided at the meeting, i and likewise condemned the veto. The, brief opening remarks of Governor Low, as well as the speech of Colonel Hawkins,! was greeted with marks of approbation. This was probably the ...
OFFICIAL SPEECH MAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 2 March 1866
OFFICIAL SPEECH MAKING. The candidates for the Roman Consulate used to address the citizens of Home, urging their claims to office : a general would point to his wounds, relate the battles he had fought, the victories gained, and what nations he had eonqnorcd, what enemies he had slain, and how many prisoners graced his triumphal entry into Rome ; — the civilian would recount his services to the State, boast of the charitable distribution of his wealth, and his hereditary ! honors. The British candidate for Parliamentary honors addresses lis constituents at the hustings, and explains what will be his policy if elected, what reforms he will [sustain, what views he will support and what oppose. These proceedings are correct. It is but right the constituent] should know the principles and opinions of! the candidate who seeks his suffrage ; and 1 ! it is also right that the member should render and account of his stewardship ; —j but there is, or should be, a limit toi speech-making.

MASONIC INSTALLATION [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 2 March 1866
MASONIC INSTALLATION The Officers of a new Lodge of the Masonic Fraternity were installed on Tuesday evening, 27th February, in A. M. E. j Church, Powell st., P. M. Win. 11. Yates, | District Deputy Grand Master for the State of California, officiating, assisted by P. M.'s Win. 1). Smith, Dawson Thomas and Wm. 11. Hall. The ceremonies were imposing and impressive. The meeting was opened by singing a Masonic Anthem, and an Invocation by the Chaplain, Rev. Bro. Wm. B. Smith, after which the D. D. G. M. delivered an Address on the duties and obligations of Masons, and the principles of the Fraternity. The Address was a lucid exposition of the objects and principles which should govern Masons. It showed that notwithstanding the opposition which Lodges of Colored Masons meet with from the Ainerican Lodges, the former are regularly constituted, and are in full fellowship with European Lodges, and arc recognized by the highest authority in foreign countries. It was one of the best addresse...
In Memoriam. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 2 March 1866
In Memoriam. We regret to chronicle this week the death of two of our friends, Charles 11. Wood and John G. Coursey, both well known arid respected. Mr. Wood was born in Washington, I). 0., and was one of the early adventurers to this State. lie was noted for his amiable disposition, his strict integrity, his industry and public spirit. He has been engaged in every enterprise for the amelioration of our condition in this State. In the celebrated "Archy Case," Mr. Wood was a leading spirit, and his time, services and money were always ready. Ilis sickness was of long duration, which he bore with his usual calmness and equanimity. Ho was a Mason of high standing, and his funeral, on Sunday last, was attended by a large concourse of friends arid his brother Masons, who, in full regalia, paid the last tribute to his worth and usefulness. He was buried with all the ancient ceremonies of the order. He leaves a widow, who mourns his death with sincere sorrow. We heartily sympathize with ke...
[For the Elevator.] The Meeting on Tuesday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 2 March 1866
[For the Elevator.] The Meeting on Tuesday Evening. Mr. Editor :—Not having on the Weilding Garment I did not attend the Masonic Installation supper or party on Tuesday night, which was, no doubt, su pei-cxcellent, but wended iny way to the inland gorilla meeting at l'latt's Hall, which was immense in numbers as it was in speeches. You would have enjoyed this meeting hugely, had you heard one speaker roar out, "Shall the nigger he allowed to eat in this white man's country (his face assuming the color of a barnyard cock's gills in spring time.) " No," was the emphatic answer. After reciting the many injuries the nation had received, and how much ho had suffered from the übiquitous nigger, especially in this country, he propounded another equally important question—howling out, " Foliar citizens, shall we allow the niggers to wear clothes in this white man's counthry?"— his bull neck exposed to the free air, filled with wrinkles, color black, blue and red, reminding me of the bovine ...

The Freedmen a Bureau Bill. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 2 March 1866
The Freedmen a Bureau Bill. President Johnson having vetoed the the Freedmen's Bureau Hill, thereby creating quite a sensation among the Union Senators and Congressmen at Washington, it might be well to give the substance of the bill, so that our readers can form a proper estimate of the reasons which actuated the President in withholding his signature. The Flag condences its provisions, as follows : "The bill provides for the extension of the Freedmen's Bureau to every part of the United States where any of the class of people may be found. Iu order to properly effect this object, the bill provides for twelve Freedmen's Districts, over each of which there is to be an Assistant Commissioner and the requisite clerks, and then each District will be sub-districted and furnished with clerks. The President is to have power to place the entire Bureau, if he chooses, under officers selected from the army, and to give military protection to all the employees of the Bureau The Secretary of W...

The winds of March are hu'tinjing Their parting song, their parting song, And summer's skies are coming, And days grow long, and days grow long. I watch, but not in gladness, Our garden tree, our garden tree ; It buds, in sober sadness, Too soon for me, too soon for me. My second winter's over, Alas! and I, alas ! and I Have no accepted lorer : Don't ask me why, don't ask me why.
