§«**»• The Sifhiffft/ Vat. A.V AKFKCT1NO TAI.B. There iviis si man named Ferguson, lie lived on Market street, He had a speckled Thomas cat That couldn't well be beat; He'd cateli more rats and mice, and sich, Than forty cats could e.it. This cat would come int-o the room And climb upon a cheer, And there he'd sit and lick hissolf And purr so awful queer That Ferguson would yell at him—Hut still he'd purr severe. And then he'd climb the moon-lit fence, Anil loaf around and yowl, And spit and claw another cat Alongside of the jowl; And then they both would shake their tails, And jump around and howl. Oh, tliis here cat of Ferguson's Was fearful then to see; He'd yell precisely like he was In awful agony; You'd think a first-class stomach-ache Had struck some small baby. And all the mothers in the street, Waked by the horrid din, Would rise right up and searcli their babes, To find some worrying pin; And still this vigorous cat would keep A hollerin' like sin. And as for Mr. Fer...
How a BeUe Lost a Husband. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 12 June 1868
How a BeUe Lost a Husband. Miss Ella Bond came home from her walk one afternoon with a look of vexation on her pretty face. She shut the outer door with a little bang, and opened the inner one with a decided Jerk. " Isn't it too bad, mamma r' Then she paused abruptly as she saw that her mother was not alone , and Mrs. Bond said, hastily:" My dear, hero is Mr. Alton." Ella's face cleared , and she came forward with a smile to welcome die handsome and wealthy Mr. Tom Alton, who had of late been her most devoted admirer. He met her with a cordial greeting, loeking down at the bright brown eyes very kindly, as he asked—" And What is it that is * too bad,' Miss Ella?" " Nothing very much—at least nothing thatVou would care to hear about." '•Icare fthont anything that interests you," he said, gallantly. "May I not hear what it was r" " It's only my vexatious dressmaker. " " And what has the provoking creature done**" asked Mr. Alton, with ah amused smile. " You may laugh ," pouted...
Grant as a Cadet. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 12 June 1868
Grant as a Cadet. A story is told of Grant during his cadet life which is worth repeating, as it is characteristic of the man. The persecntious*of his seniors were very annoying to him, and Grant, believing them no longer tolerable, had made up his mind to fight. One day when the company was on mock parade, the Captain put some insult upon him, when Grant stopped suddenly out of the ranks, pulled on his jacket, and said: 11 Now, Captain, if you are as good a man as I am, pull oft' your coat and fight me." The Captain doffed his jacket and at it they went; Grant was the smallest of the two, but he got the Captain down and pummeled him until he cried enough. " Kow," said Grant, going up to the lieutenant," you have been imposing on me, too, and I want a settlement with you." ¦ ' Such a challenge was not to be declined, and the lieutenant pitched into him, but Grant knocked him down and thrashed him soundly, and then turning to the company, said: " Who comes next? I want peace ...
A Baby's Soliloquy. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 12 June 1868
A Baby's Soliloquy. j I am here. And, if this is what they I call the world, I don't think much of it. ! It's a very nannelly world, and smells of I paregoric awfully. It's a dreadfully j light world, too, and makes me blink , I tell you. And I don't know what to do with my hands; I think I'll dig my fists in my eyes. ,No, I won't. I'll scrabble at the corner of my blanket and chew it up, and then I'll holler; whatever happens, I'll holler. And the more pareforic they give me the louder I'll yell, 'hat old nurse puts the spoon in the corner of my mouth in a very uneasy way, and keeps tasting my milk herself all the while. She spilled snuff in it last night , and, when I hollered, she trotted me. That comes from being a two days' old baby. Never mind, when I'm a man, I'll pay her back good. There's a pin sticking in me nowr , and if I say a word about it I'll be trotted or fed, and I would rather have catnip tea. I'll tell you who I am. I found out to-day. I heard folks say,"...

| ta%r Jesuit's pi ps [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 12 June 1868
| ta%r Jesuit's pi ps Oun candidate for President was not nominated at Chicago; he was adopted there. The nomination was made by the nation when Lee surrendered his sword. It is not necessary to speak in terms of eulogy of General Grant. He is the embodiment of the national valor, the personification of the American soldiery, the friend of liberty, the enemy of slavery. With him as our great leader we can and must carry Pennsylvania ; our State must lead oft with a Republican victory in October to inspire our brethren States for the contest in November. Into line, then, freemen , for the State and National ticket. The strength of General Grant as a candidate lias already been shown by the eagerness of the Democrats to obtain him. In those days when the political opinions of the great General were in doubt, the Democratic party was on its knees before Grant in an estacy of hope and fear. When the General entered Johnson's Cabinet they rejoiced. Then he was a great man, to whom ...
M*. W. R. OULD, a disabled Confed- [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 12 June 1868
M*. W. R. OULD, a disabled Confed- erate soldier, undertook sometime since , after securing permission from the nei ghboring people, to teach a colored school near Canton Hill, Desota county, Mississippi. At his suggestion the freedmen built a house for a place of worship and for a school. He started out very encouragingly. Besides a week-day school he instructed the children in the Bible on Sabbath morning. He soon found that he was giving offense to the neighbors, who objected to a Southern rebel teaching" niggers," and he was notified to desist. He paid no attention to the notice, whereupon the school house was pulled down. The negroes rebuilt it, as they did twice afterward when it was burnt by the neighbors. Mr. Ould persisted, but recently the citizens assembled and again destroyed his school house , and compelled him to leave the place. The Klu-Kluxert hereabouts say that their copperhead friends served Mr. Ould right 1 That's the party that talk about being sustained b...
. fatin's Buchanan. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 12 June 1868
. fatin's Buchanan. The death of James Buchanan which took place at Wheatland, near this City, on Monday morning of hist week, is an event of-some interest, n<it particularly to his immediate neighbors and personal friend-, but to all who have attentively studied the eventful history of our country during the la-t ten years. Without tin.' le;et inclination to speak harshly of the dead. we. nuM say that , iu our opinion, from the time that the bad leaders of the democracy in the South resolved upon rebellion against the national authority. .Tamc-s Ruchanan. whether intentionally or not. became their most valuable instrument. His Secretary ol War. Floyd, supplied the forthcoming rebellion with all kinds of munitions of war by robbing the arsenals of the North; Toucey, his Secretary of the Xavy, managed to send our ileets to distant parts of the world so as to be out of the way when needed, whil.-t his Secretary of the Treasury. Cobb, did all in his power to injure the cre...
Grant and tolf'a.r—Letters of Acceptance. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 12 June 1868
Grant and tolf'a.r—Letters of Acceptance. The letters of acceptance addressed by General Grant and Schuyler Colfax to General Hawley, President of the National Union Republican Convention, which, at .Chicago, nominated them respectively as candidates for President and Vice-President of the United States, have been published. We regret that we are prevented by want of room, from giving them iu full to our readers. General Grant's letter is brief, pointed and every way satisfactory. It has the ring about it of that other famous missive from his pen—'' I propose to move upon your works at once." His expressed determination to execute the will of the people is in striking contrast to the obstinacy and egotism of Andrew Johnson. Mr. Colfax writes more at length, and sums up in comprehensive sentences the political situation of the nation. No man is better able to place before the country its duti ji and its requirements. lie fully indorses the platform adopted by the Convention, ...
The Chicago Convention. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 12 June 1868
The Chicago Convention. If what people say is any indication of the wisdom of the action of the Chicago Convention, there never was one ever more successful. On the cars, on the street, in the public places—everywhere is heard commendation, in enthusiastic terms, of its action. The platform and the candidates alike give satisfaction, and command general approval. Not a regret is expressed, either in public or private—but in both public and private nothing hut perfect satisfaction with the result of the convention is heard. Republicans everywhere express the determination to go into the field; and our foes know that such a result means victory.
Meeting of the County Committee [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 12 June 1868
Meeting of the County Committee The '• Old Guard" Awake. We were much pleased at the unanimity of sentiment and feeling which prevailed at the meeting of the Republican County Committee on AVhit-Monday, the 1st instant. During the. important political campaign upon which we are just entering, all personal animosities and unpleasant bickerings should be saeriliced to the good of the country. AVith united counsels and a bold front, the " Old Guard" will send forth no unccr_ tain sound in October and November next. At the meeting referred to, resolutions heartily endorsing the nominations at Chicago, with the entire action of the Convention were adopted, and Saturday, August 15th, 1S<)8 , was chosen as the time for holding the primary elections iu (ho Wards, Boroughs and Townships, for the election of candidates for the offices (o be filled at the next general election. The returns of the votes polled will bo made on the first Monday after the election, August 17th.
.1 J Hack Record. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 12 June 1868
.1 J Hack Record. The history of Democracy, ei'tr since lS'lid, has been a gigantic rebellion and a gigantic robbery. Beginning with the robbery of the Indian bonds, under Jacob Thompson, James Buchanan's Secretary of the Interior; the stripping of our arsenals under Floyd, his Secretary of War; the sending oil' to distant seas of our ships by Isaac Toucey, his Secretary of the Navy ; the depreciation of our national securities under Howell Cobb, his Secretary of the Treasury, and the assertion of the dogma that this Government had no power to prevent secession, by J. S. Black, his Attorney General; follow them next into the open stealing of arms, amunilion and ships by the rebels (hey had encouraged, and you can easily realize that the great whisky frauds by which Andrew Johnson has so far tutvecrded in preventing his ejection from ofjirr, are bat the logical results of a corrupt and perjured beginning. Such is the damning record of the pseud,. Democratic party—black, blastin...
^ P Noble Words of a Noble Man. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 12 June 1868
^ P Noble Words of a Noble Man. " You may be sure , gentlemen, I shall hare no policy of my own to enforce against the will of the people." (Gen. Grant in accepting the Chicago nomination.) Noble words, fitly spoken ! This sentiment—this assurance, will be heartily indorsed by the people who have seen the country distracted and weighed down under the Administration of Johnson, who took possession of the Executive office with a policy of his own to enforce against the will of the people, and in open violation of the letter and spirit of the Constitution. Go to work, then, and secure his election.

f7o.se Up ! With the name of Grant and Colfax inscribed upon our banners, we close our ranks; we lock our shields ; we sink our dissensions. We remember that if we fail, Civilization and Freedom fail; that if we win. Liberty, Liberty, LUIKUTY to all the races of man is secured—Liberty now, Liberty to-morrow, Liberty hereafter, Liberty throughout endless, endless generations.
" Nur Wissern." [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 12 June 1868
" Nur Wissern." The Intelligencer still harps on Colfax's having been a Know-Nothing. Whether he wiis one or not, we don't know; but as we have not seen any statement to that effect in any other paper, we shall not believe he was on its say-so. For deliberate lying we will put it against Tom Pepper orliaron Munchausen. But if he was, is he any worse than the City Auditor , who the Sour-Kraut Guerilla Ku-Kluxers supported at the Late City election, or their candidate for Congress in 1804—North of Columbia ? A pretty specimen of consistency is the Intelligencer. Et tn Brute!
Democratic Eloquence. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 12 June 1868
Democratic Eloquence. One of the shining lights of the Berks county bar a few nights ago made a Democratic speech before, the assembled Klu-Klux Klaners, in the city of Reading, from which we extract the following: " Hut, fellow-Democrats, what did our forefathers do in defense of tlieir principles? When they heard of the first great conflict at arms—the battle of New Orleans, fought and won by General Jackson in 1776—they left their plows, their workshops, their stores, their offices, tlieir homes and tlieir firesides; they sacrificed tlieir means, their health, tlieir wives and little ones, their happiness and their must sctcrol honors in defense of these same glorious principles of Democracy." (Immense applause.) . - ——

_ A Democratic Expounder. A Republican of Reading, a few days ago, in a political controversy with a Democratic lawyer of " old Berks," asked him, " What is the first article of the Constitution ?" To which the learned gentlemen replied : " Well, now, thats a — of a question to osli! Why the first article is a Preamble.11
