NASBY ON THE ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 4 December 1868

NASBY ON THE ELECTION. CONFEDERATE CBOSS-ROADS , Ky., ) November 12. j Mr. Nasby gives the reason for the Democratic defeat and enumerates the obstacles the party lias been compelled to contend with as follows: "1. We shood hev succeeded bed the Bcpublikins nominated a man who was considerably less popular than Gen. Grant and who woodent hev bin able to hold so many votes. Their aint no doubt uv this, lied they nominated a man less in favor with the people, we shood hev had an easier time uv it. " 2. lied the Dvmocrisy nominated more popular men—the result wood hev been far better. Governor Seemore is an admiral candidate, but somehow he dident strike the popular heart. lie did all he eood to soot the masses, but the masses went back on him.

A SCAFFOLD SCENE. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 4 December 1868

A SCAFFOLD SCENE. A terrible scaffold scene recently took place at Tambow, in Russia. Young Gorski, a pupil ofthe high-school of that place , and eighteen years of age, was to be executed for having murdered a family of seven persons. The young criminal was conveyed to the place of execution on a wagon which was escorted by a company of dragoons. The gallows was surrounded by a crowd of ten thousand persons. After the doomed lad had alighted from the wagon, the sentence of death was read to him. He was deadly pale, and fainted before . the warrant was read through. The executioner then branded him , after he had been restored to consciousness; the boy struggled violently and uttered heartrendering screams when the red hot iron was applied to his forehead. He was then whipped, receiving about thirty lashes. The executioner thereupon undressed him and wrapped him in a long white blanket, tied his feet together, fixed the rope to his neck, and drew the blanket over his head. He...

, ^^^¦^¦^i^^^—-¦ A FEARFUL TRAGEDY. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 4 December 1868

, ^^^¦^¦^i^^^—-¦ A FEARFUL TRAGEDY. The Crocket (Texas) Sentinel, of September 22, gives the details of a fearful tragedy enacted on the previous Sunday night, at Calhoun Ferry, on Trinity river. Mr. Charles Hall , the ferryman, his wife . Miss Hall, a girl about thirteen years of age, the sister-in-law of Mr. Hall, and an unknown stranger, were all brutally murdered. The instrument was an ax , and all the victims had their skulls terribl y chopped to pieces. Mr. Hall seems to have been called down to the ferryboat and was murdered immediately on ' the river bank. His arms were badly bruised, from which it appears that he had made some effort to defend himself; but the defense was useless. The assassin's ax was buried deep in the top of the skull. His wife seems to have gone to his rescue, and was met about half way between the house and boat. The ax was buried in her cheek and temple, producing instant death. The assassins next rushed upon a strange man who was spending the n...

POPULAR OPINION [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 4 December 1868

POPULAR OPINION in Delaware is, I find, strongly in favor of this mode of punishment. There seems to be an idea here that the man who commits the smallest crime places himself instantly beyond the reach of sympathy, considerations of humanity, and the demands of simple justice. He is an outlaw and a vagabond, upon whom sinless society may wreak its most terrible vengeance, even to the extent of mutilating his body, and utterly ruining his moral nature. Fallen angels in Delaware never rise again. Law clips their wings and stamps upon them with its heel, and society snakes off the dust of its feet upon them and curses them in their degradation. The gates of mercy are shut upon them, hopelessly and forever, and they walk abroad with the storv of their shame blazoned upon them, as the women did who wore the Scarlet Letter , in the old Puritan times in New England, that all the world may know it. They know that their punishment has been fierce and terrible, and out of all proport...

gtUcttft. THE WHIPPING-POST AND PILLORY. Civilisation in Delaware—How Criminals i are Punished. A correspondent sends to the Philadel- phia Bulletin an account of the exhibition of barbarism in Delaware on Saturday I week. We quote : ' THE PILLORY AND WHIPPING-POST. There were seven persons whipped here to-day, and the ancient instrument of torture' trembled again, as it has done for half a century, in the terrible embrace of j its victims. It is a curious old relic of a semi-civilization that is forgotten everywhere else but here. It consists of a sturdy post a foot square. Three feet from the ground it pierces a small platform; and five feet above this there is a crosspiece, which contains, in each of its arms, a hole for the neck and two holes for the wrists of the miserable wretch who is to suffer its torture. The upper half of the arm lifts to admit the victim, and then ! closes sufficiently tight upon him to im- pede the circulation of the blood. It is fastened down with...

MISSPENT EVENINGS [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 4 December 1868

MISSPENT EVENINGS 1 he boy who spends an bout' of each evening lounging idly on a street corner , wastes in the course of a single year three hundred and sixty-five precious hours , which, if applied to study, would familiarize him with the rudiments, at least, of almost any .of the familiar sciences. If, hi addition to the wasting of an hour each evening, he spends five cents for a cigar, which is usually the case, the amount thus worse than wasted would pay for four of the leading magazines of the country. Boys, think of these things. Think how much precious time and good money you are wasting, and for what? The gratification afforded by the lounge on the corner or by the cigar is not only temporary, but positively hurtful. You cannot indulge in these practices without seriousl y injuring yourselves. You acquire idle and wasteful habits, which will cling to you with each succeeding year. You may in after life shake them off; but the probability are that habits thus formed in...

LINCOLN. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 4 December 1868

LINCOLN. In his late speech at Carlisle, Ohio, Mr. Stanton said: " I have been told by those who visited their friends in Europe, shortly after the close of the war, that in every household, in every place, by every fireside, there hung the portrait, more or less rude, of Abraham Lincoln." Mr. Lincoln's portrait is found in Asia; as well as in Europe—and in parts of Asia where Americans are rarely seen. Mr. Thomas W. Knox, in his journey through Siberia, two years ago, frequently saw portraits of our martyred President hanging on the walls of the wayside stations and in the hands of the wealthy citizens. At Eyaterlnburg, in the Ural Mountains, he was shown a bust of Mr. Lincoln, that was being made to the order of a wealthy Russian. The bust was five or six incnes in height, and cut in topaz, from a model procured from America for the purpose.

GAME IN CALIFORNIA [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 4 December 1868

GAME IN CALIFORNIA What a place for sportsmen some portions of California must be! A gentleman writing from San Bueneventura says that the rabbits, hares, quails, groundsquirrels, and other birds and animals are to be counted there by thousands, and that he shot a buggy-load of them in an hour or two without leaving his seat. He killed on one occasion, two rabbits at one shot, and three at another. In the last instance he only saw one, but when he went to pick it up from the side of a bush he found two others kicking their death throes alongside 1 Indeed, game is so plentiful there that farmers are obliged to kill it off with poison in order to save their crops from being eaten up. m i ¦¦ PUGH , the copperhead Judge of Franklin county, Ohio, has been held in $5 ,000 bail, for issuing fraudulent naturalization Sapors.
