LABORERS AND SERVANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 16 March 1866

LABORERS AND SERVANTS. We copied in our issue of last week an article from the Sacramento lice, on "Chinese Servants and Laborers," in which some wholesome truths are tohl, aud to which we would call attention. The labor of Chinese is, in a great measure, a matter! of necessity and not of choice. While there are in this State a sufficient number of strong, able-bodied men to perform all the ordinary branches of labor, such as farming, mining, and manufacturing, there' aro certain kinds of laborers of which we are deficient. We require domestic ser-1 vants, aud until that deficiency is supplied, families must necessarily employ Chinese. It is well known that white Americans will iiot L>e servants, —it is equally as well known that they make the worst kind of servants —and there are only three classes who will fill such occupations, viz : Irish, Chinese, and Colored persons. As! soon as the Irish servants become Ame-j ricanized, or accumulate a little money, they seek other...

California Ably Represented. We copy the following letter from the Solano Press.

California on the Veto. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 16 March 1866

California on the Veto. A large and enthusiastic meeting was held in Sacramento on the 2d inst., at which Governor Low presided. He stated the object of the meeting to be the expression of the views of the Union people of California in relation to the late veto by the President, of the Freedmcn's Bureau Bill, in opposition to the views of a large majority of the Union members of Congress. He insisted that the peoplo do not believe, now that is fought that we should surrender to those to whom the victorious patriots who formed our armies refused to surrender, and conquered in the field. When the President said that treason should be made odious, he believed him to be honest; but judging from his recent action it appeared that the treason he desired to make odious was the loyalty of the North. The new term of reproach for a man who wishes te see the principles for which the war was fought and won, carried out, is, that he is a Radical. But who that were not radicals were ever great an...

From the t?ac. Cor. American Flag. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 16 March 1866

From the t?ac. Cor. American Flag. " Let me mention the devotion of the colored people. I think if they were the only electors, McCarthy would be President before next Sunday. They are conItinually offering the attentions prompted by their own warm hearts, and become hurt and affronted when payment is spoken of. I don't think there is a colored man in Sacramento who could be induced to accept a piece of money from one whom they regard as the powerful friend of their people." For criticising the action of the President, in a mild manner, in her weekly paper, Mrs. Swishelm was recently given her walking papers from a subordinate clerkship in the Treasury Department. In the Southern States there are six hundred and thirty-one schools for colored children. The number of teachers is 1,240, and of scholars 65,000. General Howard, in a recent speech in Washington, expressed great satisfaction at the operations of the colored schools at the South, and of the capacity of acquiring informatio...

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

TELEGRAPHIC SUMMARY. Washington, March 9.—The very emphatic manner in which Mr. Secretary Seward, in conversation with certain members of Congress, affirms that the position taken by tlie President was assumed through his i fljcnce, has excited much remark. Mr. KaymonJ in a dispatch to the New York Times, de nounced the statement as a malicious perversion, and will probably obtain the satisfaction of hearing what Mr. Seward did 6ay, It is related that on the floor of the House the conversation was forced upon those who heard it in language ex ceeding'y intemperate. He reitciated his endorsement of every point in the President's specch, and said, in his own opinion there was not at present a single trai • tor in the South. The following is the contents of a letter from President Johnson to Governor Sharkey, which appears in the voluminous report to Congress, covering the process of reorganization of the Southern States. It is dated, Executive Mansion, August 15, 1805, To Governor VVm...
