CHEAP. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 20 November 1868
CHEAP. The Xew York Tribune says that the cheapest articles in the political market today are the AVashington politicians—and the cheapest of the lot are the inemlx.'1's of the House of Mair. If Grant fhink.s they are worth purchasing, there can lie no objection to his making the trade. We only t r u s t h e will tak e warning fr om President Johnson, and, instead o f b u y in g dearl y, take the gang at the lowest figure. This , after due dickering, he will find to lie extremel y small.

KANSAS. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 20 November 1868
KANSAS. Senator Pomeroy, of Kansas, says that so far as heard from, no Democrat is elected to the lower House of the Kansas Legis lature , and only one to the Senate, and he by five maj o rity, with the aid of a number of fraudul e nt v o te s.

Mr. Ross wa.s not allowed to take any part in the canva s s , and the Republican speakers e v e rywher e den o un ce d him a s a trait o r, i\:c. Served him right. Aw.ay with him
i» ¦ m HOPE FOR MARYLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 20 November 1868
i» ¦ m HOPE FOR MARYLAND. The late election shows that notwithstanding the Copperheads were aided b y the whole power of the Administration and the votes of thousands of returned rebels who were absent when the State voted for Lincoln, there is a health y gr o wth of Re - publicanism in Maryland. This growth is best shown by a comparison of the late election with that of 1SG7 for Governor: 1KG7. 1H0S. Democratic ti.l . O' .U (;'. ',437 Republican ' . '2,050 :i0,.V.)0 Dem. majority 41,044 ;S1,H47 This shows that in one year the Democratic vote has fallen oil" 1.-257. while the Republican vote has increased K,r>4l). If anything like this ratio of progress can be kept up, Ma r y land will, in a few years, stand side by side with her sister State, Pennsylvania.

It will be accordingly set in motion tis soon as Congress meets, that the Legislatures which meet in January can at once ratify it. and that b y a special session of Congress next summer the law can be passed in time for colored men throughout th e N o rth t o v o t e ' . at Ihe next fall elections.
OLD WARWICK. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 20 November 1868
OLD WARWICK. As far as we know, Warwick township is slill ahead of any oilier district in the Slate, having on the .'Id instant increased the Republican vote thirty-six over the vote in October , and decreased the Democratic vote twayity-one, makingan increase of lifty-seven on the Republican majority -from ±20 to 277. Whether this very large and gratif ying gain will or will not entitle the Republicans of Warwick totheState BannerolVorod b y the General Committee of the Hoys in l'.lue, they certainly have good cause to feel proud of their victory. Another vigorous effort on the part of the Old Warwick Brigade—the Dattallions of Litiz, of Lexington, of Brunnerville, of Rome, of .Millport, of Seminole, of Rabbit Hill, Kissel Hill. Gravel Hill and Thunder 11 illwill run up a Republican majority of at least :!l)0.
BEN*. BUTLER. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 20 November 1868
BEN*. BUTLER. The return of this noble Representative to Congress from Massachusetts, is most. gratifying to Radical Republicans all over (he country. The Copperheads hale him because he gives no quarter to reliefs and their allies. It's a pity lie is not now in command at Xew Orleans, lie would show the. vile traitors of that locality a thing or two. However, he is in Congress for two years more, and here is the vote that sent him there: Butler 13,000 Dana (Republican bolter) 1,500 Lord (Copperhead) 4,000
COVODE'S DISTRICT. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 20 November 1868
COVODE'S DISTRICT. The Governor's Proclamation announcing the result of the election for Congress in Octolicr has been issued. In Covode's District the Governor has thrown the responsibility of saying who is elected upon Congress, because two returns have been made, and he has no means of deciding which is correct. '•Honest.John Covode" will no doubt retain the seal he has so long and ably filled.
