MODEST [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 11 December 1868

MODEST What a modest set of rascals we have among the Copperheads. Some of their journals, with a coolness that would be refreshing in the dog-days, evidently exjiect and hope that General (irant will appoint, say to at least half the offices, fine old Pemocrats—capable and honest , of course —some of whom would have voted for Grant if Seymour, &e. But we incline to the opinion expressed by the New York iS' ioi,4hat while Grant will be very rigid as to the first two requisites, and bestow office on neither fools nor knaves, he will not confide them to those who have done nothing towards creatingor educating the public sentiment which bore him into power, or who did not find out on which side they stood until, through the exertions of others, it had become clear which was to be the winning side. From this we regret to be obliged to add, in conclusion, that the tine old honest and capable Democrats, even those who would have voted for Grant if Seymour had not, &c...

It is a remarkable fact , and one that is favor able to the already well established reputation of tho IIOWK SKWIXC MACIlIN*:, that the more valuable the article the more apt it Is to bo counterfeited. It has often been remarked in favor of the Christian Itoiigion, that if there were no true Christians iu tho world there would be no hypocrvlcs, and if there wereiiOB-eiinino money In circulation , there would be no inducements for counterfeiting. The same rule applies in Sewing Machin is.

Not one of its many rooms were lighted, with the exception of the library and thai used in common by the two domestics. Vet there had been a time wlun those darkened and deserted parlors had been one blaze of light, and its walls had echoed to the sound of merry laughter and gay young voices. Judge Harding entered the library, and closing the door, looked drearily around. Vet it was filled with all the appliances of wealth and luxury: the carpel was like velvet to the foot * , the lofty walls were bedecked with pictures, and the wide, deep windows, hung with wine-colored drapery of the richest silk. A large easy chair was wheeled hi front of the lire, which gave forth a ruddy glow: across it lay a dressing-gown, while on the vug were slippers, ah ready for his feet. But Judge Harding knew it was the work of old Margery, his housekeeper, who. tbonirh...

Dear William: I have been very much delighted with my trip. I had no idea what a big thing the ocean was. Why, it's immense ! Only think of it ! we have been out sight of land for several days. I had an idea they tied up to a tree at night or threw a buoy overboard to hold on b y ; and then the ocean is so blue ! 1 had im idea it was green. I like it all but its roughness. It is no respector of persons. I thought my presence might have calmed it; but no, it got up a gale for my special benefit. And oh, William ! I was very sea-sick, and was thankful secretaries were not obliged to go to sea right along every day. \\ hat an intricate allair a man-of-war is, to lie sure.

If our hacks could feel the load, Would we waste the day in wishing For a time that ne'er can be; Would we wait in each impatience For our ships to come from sea? If we knew the baby Angers Pressed against the window-pane Would be cold and stiff to-morrow—Never trouble us again—Would the bright eyes of our darling Catch the frown upon our brow, Would the print of rosy fingers Vex us then as they do now? Ah, these little ice-cold fingers; Uow they point our memories back To the hasty words and actions Strewn along our backward track! How those little hands remind us, As in snowy grace they lie, Not to scatter thorns—but roses—For our reaping by and by. Strange we never prise the music Till the sweet-TOlced bird has flown; Strange that we should sHght the violets Till the lovely flowers are gone; Strange that summer skies aid sunshine Never seem one-half s...

| -IL — II PiKf ttttttCPttg. MOTHER HVBBAIW8 WARNim It was in the days of our grandmothers, when there were brick ovens in the land, that Mr. Hubbard bought his house —the haunted house of Mr. R—— , very much against his wife's will. It was a very lonely house. It was next to a graveyard, which, though unused, was not very cheerful, and it had the reputation of a ghost. However, Mr. Hubbard did not believe in ghosts, and was too cheerful to be depressed by warnings, and never intended to be lonely. ; " Mother Hubbard," he said, when his | wife shook her head over the purchase , j " I've got the house cheap, and it is a goo I i one. You will like it when you get there. ! If you don't, why, then talk." : 80 the house was bought, and into it the Hubbard family went. There was scarcely a chare s for a ghost to show his face in such a family of boys and girls. The rosy-faced master of the house and his little wife had ten of them. It was in View of the eternal cry of " mother," tha...
