A DEMOCRATIC SAINT. I [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 4 December 1868

A DEMOCRATIC SAINT. I Xotwithstanding the grand Republican victory just won, and the final settlement ! of our national affairs which it has already ' assured, we must not ignore the fact that the old enemy is yet alive, and preparing again to organize and rally his forces—the, grand army of Xew York burglars, prizelighters, shoulder-hitters, pick-pockets, ; big thieves and little thieves , black-legs, i keepers of rum-mills and dance-houses , confidence-men , lottery swindlers, bummers, perjurers, jail-birds and subjects of I the devil generally. The ''Democrat,'' published by the no- ' torious '* Brick"' Pomeroy, at Xew York, is the recognized organ of this party, from the last number of which we extract the ! following : " The fight for next year has begun.

THE PHILADELPHIA MURDER. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 4 December 1868

THE PHILADELPHIA MURDER. Some of the particulars of the murdei of Mrs. Mary E. Hill, at Philadelphia , were published in our last week's issue. Additional particulars were obtained at the examination by the coroner, from which it appeared that her son-in-law, George S. Twitcliel, Jr., induced her to buy the house she lived in. The contract was left to Twitcliel, who secured the deed of the property in his wife's name, and a short time since tried to mortgage the same •) raise ue ey. The deceased heard f the act, ami commenced legal proceedings to save the property. This difficulty is supposed to he the cause of her murder. She had been twice married, and was about sixty years of age. The evidence shows that Twitcliel murdered her b y b .aiing her over the head with a poker, after which he threw her out of the third story window , to make it appear that she cither fell or jumped out, which caused her death. The evidence completely destroyed the theory of robbery and murder by...

A SURE THING. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 4 December 1868

A SURE THING. The Pittsburg Gazette says, what every reader knows to be true, that where the journals of Pennsy lvania record the arrest of a thief or burglar, and the capture of his "tools," the kit comprises not only the regular appliances of the rascally trade, but a batch of the Snowden naturalization papers. Can anybody account for this? <g"No notice can be taken of any communication, or article, unless we know the real name of the author.
