MOHAMMED. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 9 March 1866

MOHAMMED. Mohammed, or Mahomet, the founder of a religion which has spread over a considerable portion of the globe, was born, in 070, at Mecca, a city of Arabia, of the noble family of Koreish, Losing his father in his infancy, the guardianship of him devolved on his uncle, Abu 'I aleb, who employed him to go with his caravans from Mecca to Damascus. In this employment he continued till he was 28 years of age, when he married a rich widow named Khadijah. He continued to act some time as a merchant, but a disposition to religious contemplation seems to have attended him from his early youth ; and having remarked on his travels the infinite variety of sects which prevailed, he formed the idea of founding a new one. He accordingly spent much of his time in a cave near Mecca, seem ingly alone, and employed in meditation and prayer, but in reality he called to his aid a Persian Jew, well versed in the history and laws of his persuasion, and two Christians, one of the Jacobite and the ot...

Bonaparte's Early Poverty. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 9 March 1866

Bonaparte's Early Poverty. Thiers, in his history of the Consulate, j ncites some very strange and previously. unknown particulars respecting the early j life and penury of Napoleon Bonaparte.: It appears that after lie had obtained a subaltern's commission in the French ser j vice, by his skill and daring at Toulon,! he lived some time in Paris in obscure lodgings, and in such extreme poverty that he was often without the means of i paving ten sous for his dinner, and fre-1 qucntly went without any at all. He was under the necessity of borrowing small sums, and even worn out clothes, from his acquaintances ! He and his brother Louis, afterwards King of Holland, had at one time only a coat between them ; — so that the brothers could only go out alternately, time and time about. A t this crisis the chief benefactor of the future Emperor and conqueror, " at whose mighty name the world grew pale," was the actor Talma, who often gave him i foi d and money. Napoleon's face, afterwards so...

Death of l'rofcHsor Manes. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 9 March 1866

Death of l'rofcHsor Manes. Practical science, and especially chemistry and geology as applied to agriculture, has lost a useful and zealous champion in James J. Mapes, who died a short time since in New York, his native city, not having quite attained sixty years of age, having been born on the 29th .May, 1800. Professor Mapes was born a chemist, having manufactured illuminating gas as an experiment when he was but eight years of age—gas being then scarcely known. Having qualified himself ty years of clerkship, he became a merchant when but twenty-one, and was many years extensively involved in trade and in sugar-refining, in which he ultimately failed. Meantime, as well as since, he gave much attention to the fine arts, and achieved a measurable success in drawing, engraving and painting. Appointed Professor of Chemistry and Natur.il Philosophy in the National Academy of Des'gn, he gave it a very able course of lectures on the Chemistry ot Colors. lie was a working member of many k...

Chinese Servants and laborers. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 9 March 1866

Chinese Servants and laborers. A correspondent writing to the Sacramento Bee, says: "In bel»:»If of the laboring citizens of ( alifornia I ask, can nothing be done to protect them from the ruinous competition of Chinese labor, and is it right that men and women should be thrown out of employment or forced to work for wages that will barely sustain life, by a class of beings whose expenses of living are so small, and whose habits and customs are so different from ours, that it enables them to work for less than white men can support themselves with ? The Chinese have no interests in common with us, further than to accumulate what they can of our currency to take to China, thereby impoverishing the State and decreasing the circulating medium. It is scarcely necessary to state that tie Chinese a|c filling every avenue to labor that they can, and something must bo done by the State Government, or tho people, to remedy this evil. The peoplo may form leagues throughout the State and make ...

THE VETO AGAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 9 March 1866

THE VETO AGAIN. The all-absorbing topic still continues jto be President Johnson's veto and his maudlin speech to a crowd of Copperheads lon the night of 22d ult., in front of the White House. We say maudlin speech, i for Andrew Johnson could not have been sane and sober when he so desecrated the birthday of George Washington. We were loth to believe a year ago the reports of his inebriety on the occasion of his inauguration to the Vice Presidency, i but now it appears as if he was in the same condition. Does the President have his periodical debauches ? Or is he so besotted with the honors of his high office that he forgets the dignity with which it is hedged ? Under any circumstance he i has disgraced himself and the great nation J over which he has unfortunately been made j ruler. We notice that nearly every paper in the land which was loyal to the Government during the rebellion and which sustained the war for the permanency of the Union, now condemn the insane course of the Pre...

" The Life, Public Services, and State Papers of Abraham Lincoln." By Henry J. Raymond. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 9 March 1866

" The Life, Public Services, and State Papers of Abraham Lincoln." By Henry J. Raymond. This is the best biogiaphy of our lamented President yet issued. Mr. Raymond brings to his task all the requisite acquirements, literary ability, and an intimate acquaintance with the subject of his memoir. It is, strictly speaking, a history of the public life of Mr. Lincoln— for as a public man lie can only be viewed by the American people, and in no other light; his private life was almost devoid of incident, and perhaps passed as calmly and as quietly as that of ordinary mortals. As a lawyer, statesman, and President, each incident of his life is of interest to the nation, and more particularly to that class to which lie was a Moses.' • Like all good and great men he loved an J revered his mother, and it is probable her advice and example intluencd his life and actions. He was born in Hardin county, Kentucky, February 12th, 1809. In 1817 his parents moved to Spenser county, Indiana, where his...

The Free American. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 9 March 1866

The Free American. i This is the title of a new paper intended Ifor gratuitous circulation. It is published ! by George C. Gorham, editor and proprietor, and is thoroughly loyal and liberal in | its tone and sentiment. It will support what is now called radicalism, but which i was one short year ago considered true j Republican principles. Ihe Free American advocates freedom in its fullest sense; it opposes President Johnson in his reconjstruction policy, and denounces his apos|tacy, and favoritism to traitors. That | our readers may more fully understand! ! Mr. Gorham's views, we publish his pros--1 pectus entire : i " This little sheet—of which I may say as Touchstone said of his betrothed : 'An I ill-favored thing, sir, but mine own ' —is I put forth at my own expense, in obedience to a strong impulse to do something, liow- | ever unimportant, toward the dissemina- ; tion of Truths which must now be earnest- , Iy uttered, and in support of Principles which must be contended for, ...

COMMUNICATIONS. [For the Elevator.] " Watchman, What of the Night ? " "Oh, ho! past 12 o'clock, and a starlight morning. - ' The darkest hours arc said to be those nearest to daybreak ; and we begin to feel 1 such to be true iu our case. The President is doubtless convalescent, since his j very serious attack of" Colorphobia," the [ fever has considerably abated, and strong | hopes arc now entertained by the loyal masses of his entire recovery, lleports come from various loyal States, which show a healthy state o'l the body-politic, and the best of all, Doctor Low, at the great consultation, Friday last, at Sacramento, pronounces the patient beyond danger, although amputation may become necessary. But to the subject more direct. We have yet strong hopes for the future ; the loyal masses are awakening, and the better principles of the American heart are developing themselves. Is there a true patriot who can enjoy liberty purchased by the blood of the black man, and yet refuse to do h...

School Festival at Sutter Creek. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 9 March 1866

School Festival at Sutter Creek. A correspondent of the Amador Ledger furnishes that paper with the following aocount of the School Festival which took place recently at Sutter Creek, Amador county : "The festival given in this place on Tuesday evening, by the colored people, for the benefit of this school, was a perfect success, pecuniarily and otherwise. Our citizens, with their usual liberality, turned out in large numbers. The non-arrival of a distinguished speaker from San Francisco, the entertainment was not as varied as the committee intended, but a couple of extempore addresses by Holland and Miller, on the object of the gathering, were very credibly delivered. Master Holland recited two pieces that would have done credit to those enjoying greater advantages. Professor Holland gave us a lecture on Phrenology, after which he examined the craniums of several persons present, and very truthfully described the habits and characters of his subjects, he being blindfolded during th...

What Forney Said. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 9 March 1866

What Forney Said. The following is the substance of Forney's article in the Philadelphia Press, which explains the passage iu the President's speech : "While staunch ffiends of the Republic were taking council among themselves, after reading the veto message of the President, the Copperhead politicians in and out of Congress, assisted by the disloyal elements in that city, were celebrating the event with joy as tumultuous as that with which the secession sympathizers here would have hailed the entrance of Jeff Davis into the Capitol of the United States after the battle of Bull Run. Even before Congress had adjourned, the Star announced a serenade to the President, and early in the evening a band of music, followed by about two hundred people, called at the President's mansion. Ilis' Excellency declined to make a speech, but somebody announced that he would address the public on Thursday evening.— Not a Union man of either House—not even an office holder, as far as I could hear, too...
