gtortnj. BABY'S STOCKIXU. Hang up the baby's stocking, lie sure you don't forget! The dear little dimpled darling: She ne'er saw Christmas yet. But I've told her all about it, And she opened her big blue eyes, And I'm sure she understood me, She looked so funny and wise. Dear, dear ! what a tiny stocking '. It doesn't take much to hold Such little pink toes as baby's Away from the frost and cold. But then for the baby's Christmas It never will do at all; Why, Santa Claus wouldn't be looking For anything half so small. I know what we'll do for the baby ; I've thought of the very best plan; I'll borrow a stocking of grandma—The longest that ever I can. And you'll hang it by mine, dear mother, Bight here in the corner, so, And write a letter to Santa, And fasten it on to the toe. Write, "This is baby's stocking That bangs in the corner here ; Yon never have seen her, Santa, For she only came this year ; But she's just the blessedest baby, And now, before you go . Just cram her st...
LEGISLATIVE EXTRAYAGANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 25 December 1868
LEGISLATIVE EXTRAYAGANCE. We are very strongly encouraged in our effort to call the attention of the. public to the enormous system of extravagance which has characterized the last two or three sessions of our State Legislature. The Norristown Free /7'.< •- • , the Scranton Republican, and a number oi' other leading Republican journals, as well as our neighbors of the Lancaster I) n ','./ K,-pi'css, are very emphatic in their demand for the needed reform, ami as there is no getting over this suhjict; as there can 1M' no more successful whitewashing or humbugging the people, as was done last year. when •¦Honest" Andy Armstrong was made chairman of the Special ( .'onnnitteo on Retrenchment and Reform. we hope and expect to see i very respectable Republican paper in ihe St.itis coiue out and take its position on one side or the other of this important question, for. if ,¦'• < .'..¦« party, refuse or neglect to carry out some substantial reform al the combe.:; si &am...

IIOX. 0. J. DICKE1 On our first page, to-day, the readers oi FATHKR A URAIIAM will lind Mr. Dickey's first effort on the lloor of Congress, being the formal announcement of the death of his distinguished predecessor, THADDEUS STEVENS. The following extracts from editorials and correspondence of leading papers, having come under our notice, will be read by the constituents for Mr. Dickey with great satisfaction : " Mr. Dickey's opening effort will commend him favorably to the country, which will be too apt to look critically on the successor of the grand old statesman. Modest in tone, well weighed in language, and thoroughly earnest in tho affection and kindly feeling evinced in honoring tho memory of a dead friend and preceptor, it will bo received this morning by tho nation at large as a flattering credential of the new member."—Phil. Press. " Mr. Dickey made an impression to-day as a man of great ability. His voice is not so loud and strong as it should bo to enable the gall...
THE AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 25 December 1868
THE AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE HON. THOS. II. UURROWES, of this city, has set vigorously t o work to reorganize the Agricultural College of Pennsylvania, to whose presidency he lias just been called. It is to lie hoped that under his administration the troubles which have so thickly strewn the history of agricultural education in our State will disappear, and our knowledge of Mr. Burrowes, and his success as State Superintendent of Common Schools and Soldiers Orphans' Schools, justifies the expectation that they will.

RIGHT! Attorney General West, of Ohio, has written an opinion for the Auditor of the ^tate, taking the ground that members of the Legislature are not entitled to compensation for services rendered while that body is not in session, and that any actor resolution directing payment for extra services of cither members or officers, not provided for by law prior to their term of office, is unconstitutional, and should be rejected. This allects committees sitting duiuig the recess. The decision would not Wat all acceptable to the politicians of Pennsylvania.

—-^ ^^ ¦ »i — - THE TRITH OF HISTORY. In the eloquent eulogy of (Jen. Cameron, in the United States Senate, on Mr. Stevens, which we regret that our limits preclude us from publishing, there is a historical error, wbich it is but proper should be corrected. The General stated that Mr. S. was elected to Congress in 1850, and failing to obtain a re-nomination, he retired from Congress. This leaves the impression that he served but one term, and was elected for the first time in 1H.10. The. fact is that he was elected the first time in 1S48, re-elected in 1H.10 , and served two terms, the usual limit of Congressional service in this count v. at that period.

CHRISTMAS! [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 25 December 1868
CHRISTMAS! To-day the entire Christian world is engaged in joyful observance of the great event —the birth of the Savior of Man. A writer in one of the English magazines truthfully remarks that •¦ The very rich people are to be pitied this Christmas season, with them, turkeys, champagne, and all other good tilings, are ever matters of course: they can hardl y know bow to celebrate Christmas with any extra festivity. Even with the servants of the very rich, the turkey, the chanpagno, <fcc, have become men' dross from the superabundance." It is not so with the millions of common people of this country . The coming of Christmas with us, particularl y iu Pennsylvania, means the coniitiL' of every possible luxury to supply the family board; social visits, sports, presents and congratulations; toys and good things innumerable for the little ones; and general mirth, joy and festivity among all classes of people all in commemoration of the coming of the Prince of Peace.

THE DIFFICULTY. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 25 December 1868
THE DIFFICULTY. In :i conversation with a member of the House of Repifsentatives.il tew days ago. on the subject of legislative reform , wc were told that the difficulty experienced by every mendier, himself included, was the fact that each one is committed and pledged to one or mor,e Friends who want places at the Capitol during the coming session. But for this fact, be gave us to understand, be would be ready to favor the plan of reform—as recentl y suggested in the columns of FATHKR AURAIIAM. AVe beg the gentleman referred to, and all others, to remember that these pledges are of a private nature, and entirely between themselves and their place-hunting friends; that with such arrangements the people have nothing to do; that they are members elect to represent the interests of their tax-paying constituents , and that, if the system of extravagance and speculation which characterized the Legislature last year is continued during the coming session, a justly indignant people w...
mm • ~m^—' WHAT WAS GAINED I [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 25 December 1868
mm • ~m^—' WHAT WAS GAINED I "With the election of General (J rant comes a higher standard of American citizenship —with more dignity and character to the name .abroad, and more assured liberty and security attaching to it at home. Our diplomacy will be rescued from the subservient tone by which we have so often been humiliated in our own eyes and in the eyes of Europe, and the true position of the first nation of the earth in rank and prestige will be asserted; not in the spirit of bravado, or with the mere arrogance of strength, but with the conscious dignity which lielongs to power, and with the moderation which is the true ornament of justice. And with this vindication of the rights and the rank of our citizenshi p abroad, will come also its protection and ' its panoply at home. That provision of the Federal Constitution which solemnl y guarantees that " the citizens of each State shall be entitled to all the privileges and immunities of citizensin thescveralstates" will...
BRUTAL MURDER OF A FARMER. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 25 December 1868
BRUTAL MURDER OF A FARMER. 1'iom tho Marietta (Ohio] Rector. Dec. 17. Thomas A. T. Jett, of this township, was murdered for his money last Saturday evening, on his farm, about live miles east of town, on the Little Muskingum, just above Long Run. He had been in town that day to get his two horses shod and to pay his taxes. He had considerable money with him, probably £4(10, or perhaps U500. He started home, and just at dusk was seen at the Brick Church , some two miles lxdow his place. He was ' a bachelor, and at the time he was living alone. On Sunday morning, n German woman, who lives a neighbor, went to the house to carry him a plate of meat, and finding no one, went to the stable door, which was swinging, and there lay Mr. Jett, across the passage at the rear of the horse-stalls, with his head in the second stall from the door. She was alarmed, and without waiting lo examine, went for her husband, who came, when he was discovered to lx' dead and frozen stiff. His head was ...

[( omuiunlcateil] I'.DITOKS l'ATHKR AURAIIAM: .Now, since Betsey killed the Bear, and the dan-I ger is past, I have crept out of my fossil - i ized shell, and mean to take a little exci' cise in gymnastics, to bring my UIUSCICH ' in play again. Cold and indifferent as[ I was, I was warmed up by reading tb/» ; Lancaster InteUUjencer. I became inter-! ested in its daily productions, I studied the animus of its editors , with as much i curiosity as a physician studies the aci lions of a madman, if possible to ascertain the cause of the aberration of mind manifested. How to account for.such perverse views, dishonest garblings, and liol.l j brazen, unfounded assertions aud contor-I lion of facts, was a pu/zle to me. A;i ; men , they were gentlemanly and friendly, ! but as politicians they seemed ambitious ; to immortalize themselves with Vallandingham, Brick Pomeroy, and Andy John-; sou.

WHY DON'T YOU LEAKS A TRADE I [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 25 December 1868
WHY DON'T YOU LEAKS A TRADE I This question was propounded in our hearing, a few evenings since , to a young man who had been for several months unsuccessfully seeking employment as a clerk or salesman in some, of our leading houses. Complaining of bis ill-luck, one of his friends who knew his mechanical talent, but doubted whether he could make himself useful either as clerk or salesman , put the interrogatory to him which wc have placed as the caption of this article. The reply was, that a trade was not so respectable. as a mercantile occupation. Under this delusive idea our stores are crowded with young men who have no capacity for business, and who, because of the fancied respectability of doing nothing, waste away their minority upon salaries which cannot possibly liquidate their expenditures. 1 Ate, too late in life , they discover their error, and, lieibre they reach the age of thirty, many of them look with envy upon the thrifty mechanic , who, in tho days of their boy...
