Wanted—A Boy With Ten Points. 1. Honest. 2, Pure. 3, Intelligent. 4, Active. 5, Industrious. 6 , Obedient. 7, Steady. 8, Obliging. 9, Polite. 10, Neat. One thousand first-rate places are opened for one thousand boys who can come up to the standard. Each boy can suit his taste as to the kind of business he would prefer. The places are ready in every kind of occupation. Many of them are already filled by boys who lack some of the most important points, but they will soon be vacant. One is an office not far from where we write. The lad who ha* the situation is losing his first *point. He likes to attend the circus and theatre. This costs, more mopey than he can afford , but soin«A-ov! he manages to be there frequently. His employers are quietly watching to learn how he gets so much extra spending money; they will soon discover a leak in the monev drawer, detect the dishonest boy, and his place will he ready for some one who is now getting ready for it by observing point STo. 1, a...

" Veterans to the Front." [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 26 June 1868
" Veterans to the Front." Thousands of conservative soldiers will gather as the representatives of a mighty host in New York on Independence day. • • * Not the unscathed colonels, the brevet-brigadiers who never saw a battle, tlie corpulant commissaries, the pufl'y paymaster and the sleek sutlers; bnt the battle-scarred veterans who were tlie first to volunteer and the last to lie mustered out; not the holiday soldiers, but the heroes of the East and tbe West, the men who breasted the shock of battle on the Tennessee and the Fotomac—Lancaster Intelligencer. Of course, the editor of the Intelligencer, one of these same " heroes " and " battle-scarred veterans " who "breasted the shock of battle " by paying a thoumini dollars for a colored substitute will figure as one of the representatives of this mighty host of conservative soldiers Where's the "nigger?"
In Troubie. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 26 June 1868
In Troubie. We sympathize sincerely, with the Copperheads in thsir troubles. " Up to this date they have not decided Whether to nominate a Republican or a Copperhead for President; whether thejr will stand on the platform of gold or greenbacks; whether their battle cry will be "Universal Suffrage," or "A White Man's Government." Of course Copperhead principles are immutable^-iwhen they decide what they are. Poor fellows, we pity them. - ¦ ,.
Result of Radicalism. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 26 June 1868
Result of Radicalism. The Reading Eagle, under this heading, gives " a few results of Radical fanaticism," as follows: " Gustavus Riddle committed suicide in Philadelphia on Friday by jumping from a fourth story window." " Prof. Robert Clemens, Principal of the German Schools in Columbus, Ohio, committed suicide on Thursday evening." " William Loav hung himself at Montreal on Thursday." " Joseph Pact-eel shot himself in Mauch Chunk on Thursday." " Cyrus Wright attempted to commit suicide in Philadelphia, on Friday, by swallowing Paris Green." Upon diligent inquiry we learn that every one of the above unfortunates was a Democrat 1 No wonder that the Eagle is beginning to feel uneasy as to the fate of his party.
Wither ^brubitm ' s *3[bi f>*. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 26 June 1868
Wither ^brubitm ' s *3[bi f>*. A GENTLEMAN of Chicago, whose prominent position and opportunities for judging of the situation give weight to his declarations, writes us : The political campaign is opening in this section with good spirit. We will carry the Northwestern States for Grant and Colfax by huge majorities, in my opinion, no matter whom the Democrats nominate. In Illinois, we have a strong State ticket, and will win sure by 40,000. This is my figure. The more sanguine count on 60,000 majority." ALBERT PIKE , in the Memphis Appeal, says ofthe Chase movement : "We have heard that Catholic sailors, tired of fish and eggs, if they had eggs to eat, during Lent, had a habit of fastening a ham to a line, letting it over the ship's side into the sea, and drawing it up again, repeating the formula, 'Down Gammon, up Salmon ."—after which they could eat )4 without needing absolution or doing penance. N<# other process, we think, can make a Democrat out of Salmon P...
A Democratic "Leader." [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 26 June 1868
A Democratic "Leader." The following is from the La Crosse Democrat, the leading Democratic paper ofthe Great West. We shall look iu vain for any rebuke of the atrocious sentiment cpntaine . d ir? this paragraph* from any Democratic paper in the Union. Why I " Do you blame us when we say that (Jod was just in sending .lohn Wilkes Booth on that Good Friday night, tliree years ago, the darkest and gloomiest in American history, to strike the traitor down, and lilnsrate the white freemen of America from the yoke of a despot'! God is just. He struck the tyrant Lincoln from existence at an hour when the country could no longer bear the burden of him ; and God, iti his wisdom, cannot let the free people of America, whom Le has so protected and prospered, long remain chafing under the rule of any desjot.'' What shall be said of a political party which, whatever may be its pretensions, gathers to its standard the creatures whose sentiments are reflected in such language as that ?
Copperhead Honesty. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 26 June 1868
Copperhead Honesty. The Lancaster Intelligencer, always prating about honesty, a few days ago copied an article from thc Columbia Spy, in which occurs this sentence: " But now-a-;Uys, a change lias come o'er the spirit of our dreams, and a man Who will not be bribed is considered a natural born fool." In the second paragraph below the above, in the same article, it charges the Spy with saying: "The man who will hot be bribed is a natural born fool," leaving out the word "considered,'1 thus changing the meaning of the whole. Now, who could imagine a more contemptible trick than this? Nothing, it seems, is too mean for a regular copperhead organ grinder. And they talk about Honaa ty 1

m • The Naturalization Fraud*. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 26 June 1868
m • The Naturalization Fraud*. It was given in evidence before the Committee on the contested election case last winter, that Mark Leddy and two well dressed strangers, said to be from Philadelphia, met at a point on the Phiiipsburg and Clearfield railroad, aud proceeded to a shanty on the line of the road, kept by a Mrs, Lynch, and there put the bogus papers through what is called " the coffee process "—that is, staining them witb strong coffee—thus, giving them the appearance of age. It would be well for Inspectors of elections to examine all certificate* of naturalisation offered them at future elections, to learn whether they have been submitted to the cofiee process. It can sometimes be detected by the smell. This however is not an infallible test, as tobacco and other substances may sometimes be used as deodorizers. Read the testimony in another column.
Cliques and Factions. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 26 June 1868
Cliques and Factions. As FATHER ABRAHAM is devoted to no clique, faction or self-constituted leaders, but only to the interests Of the great Republican party, and the triumphant election of its candidates, we respectfully decline publishing the communication of " Radical." We do not suppose that the autkor of the nrticle really intedded to drag us into any petty controversy beiwe£a.cejiain leaders of faction, •but.'JYe do not see how we could gratify him without danger of becoming our selves mixed up with these unfortunate, - fruitless wrangles over mere spoils. We shall , therefore* leave the matter with those more directly interested in the sub-> jedt tba* w« At*; Let every Republican "voter, Ht the proper time, attend the primary? meetings of the ^ party, then and there, according t0 ¦*•>• ^vsti of. hi* judgment and convictions of duty, deposiflhis, vote, and afl*vrtll *ire well.
