§? oettg. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 8 January 1869

§? oettg. "0 0 IT ALONE." BY JOHX <i. SA.tK. There's a game much in fashion, T think its called euchre, Though I never played it for p leasure or lucre, In which, when cards are in certain conditions, The players appear to have changed positions, And one of them cries, in a confident tone—" I think I might venture to go It alone." While watching a game, 'tis a whim of the bard's, A moral to draw from the skirmish in cards, And to fancy he finds in the trivial strife Some excellent hints for the battle of Life, Where, whether the prize be a ribbon or throne, The winner is he who can "go it alone." When great Oallileo proclaimed thai the world In a regular orbit was ceasiugly whirled, And got—not a convert for all of his pains, But only derision, and prison, and chains—"It moves for all that," was his answariug tone, For he knew,- like the earth, he could "go it alone." When Kepler, with intellect piercing afnr, Discovered the laws of each planet and star, And doctors who...

OUR SENATORS AND REPRESENT! TIVEK. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 8 January 1869

OUR SENATORS AND REPRESENT! TIVEK. .Senators Rilliugfclt aud Fisher, in the Republican caucus, at Harrisburg, voted in favor of Legislative Reform. They will both be found on the right side of the question on the floor of the Senate. Our Representatives—Messrs. (iatchel , Peters, Hopkins and Summy, in caucus, last Monday, have made for themselves a different record. At our request , Dr. (iatchel presented our proposition to do the pasting and folding of the. House , during the session , for $5,000, but lie and his colleagues not only voted as a unit against it, but also agreed to a proposition to change the existing law so as to increase the number of officers , and to go into a system of extravagance without limit! Comment at this time is unnecessary.

BISGS. The article In the Slate Guard of the : 1st Inst., headed "The Rings must be j Broken up," was excellent—"will do to tie ] to as far as it goes." It talks very point- i edly about the " Ring*" at Washington— i the National Capital—but has not a word , to say about "Rings" at Harrisburg— \ the State Capital! How is this? Rut may- ! be the State Guard is verdant enough to think that there are no " Rings" at Harrisburg ? Come nearer home, neighbor.

UENEBAL GRANT. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 8 January 1869

UENEBAL GRANT. General (Jrant. as President elect, is the same quiet, unostentatious, and retiring gentleman that be was during the canvass, or preceding his nomination. AVe doubt not that, as President, whilst maintaining fbe dignity of bis office in all official iieiiou. in will restore it to the primitive simplicity that prevailed during the days of Washington, and mark more effectually than most of bis predecessors have llie distinction lietween tbe chosen ruler in' a free people and the sovereign of an empire. Then- will be none of the pomjis of imyalty about the administration of General Grant. The simplicity of our republican institutions will lind in him. as the head of the nation, a true representative and exponent. When before Petersburg General Grant was. to all outward appearance, the most unimportant man in the army. He was distinguished by neither "fuss" nor "feathers.'' and, like the rebels at the commencement of the war, he showed an evident desire "to be let a...

THE UNITEDSTATES SENATOR [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 8 January 1869

THE UNITEDSTATES SENATOR The nomination of Hon. John Scott, of Huntingdon County,-by the Republican caucus, on Wednesday last, for the United States Kcnatorship, assures us a true and faithful representative man on the floor of the Senate for the next six years. Mr. Scott is about forty-six years of age, a native of the county in which he resides, and ranks among tke ablest lawyers in the State. Like General Grant, he commenced in early life as a tanner by trade, and afterwards, and through his own efforts, succeeded in securing for himself a thorough learning in the law, and brilliant success in his profession. His antecedents are democratic. On the commencement of the war, with many others, he came out squarely on the side of the country, and after serving a single session in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, he became openly iden titled with the great Republican party. His nomination as the Republican Senator, over such men as Gen. Morhead, Hon. G. A. Grow aad othe...

PROGRESSIVE LEGISLATION [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 8 January 1869

PROGRESSIVE LEGISLATION We have a very distinct recollection that some years ago—" when our old hat was new "—somebody opened a money drawer belonging to somebody else, and took therefrom a snr.dl sum of money, I without the knowledge, or consent of the i owner, and then .used it to buy shoes for ' his wife, socks for the baby and meat for : the family. IIe was afterwards arrested i on a charge of what they termed stealing, j and the fact of his taking the money in : the manner aforesaid being clearly estab- ' nnhed before a jury of twelve; men, he was! sentenced to undergo imprisonment iu a nasty, lilthy jail, for many mouths, and ! all the people of the neighborhood brand- ! ed him as a notorious thief besides. i Without pretending to know the various [ ways in which the offense called stealing! may be committed, not being learned in ; the mysteries and technicalities of the law, we will state a little case, just for ! our readers "and the rest of mankind" to ! think over fo...

THE GOVERNOR ALL RIGHT! [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 8 January 1869

THE GOVERNOR ALL RIGHT! Just as was to lx; expected, our patriotic and ever-faithful Governor, is squarely on the side of reform. In his excellent annual message, among many other sound sayings, we find the following: " Retrenchment is emphatically demanded by tke people, in legislative expenditures, as well as in every other branch of the government. Their eyes are open to investigate every transaction, and by their ballots they are ready to tyike down those who w»M ?iot take effective octton in /tiior of positire and radical reform. The money paid into the Treasury is the property of the people, every one of whom has a just right, to hold his representative to a strict accountability for every dollar that may be appropriated or expended." The people of Pennsylvania are indeed fortunate in having their highest office filled by such a man as John W. Geary. He dares do right, by taking his side with and for the people. With such an emphatic endorsement of our feeble efforts t...

SOMETHING FROM GRANT [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 8 January 1869

SOMETHING FROM GRANT General Grant has spoken out very decidedly and very frankly upon the subject of the necessity of curtailing the expenses of the Government. The General gave his opinion in a conversation with several Congressmen, during which the subject pf Government subsidies to railroads was brought up. He said, substantiall y, it was very apparent to every man In the country that our finances needed the closest attention, and that it is vitally important, if we intend to pay off the national debt and lighten taxation, to practice the most rigid economy, and the place to begin with the bills that are pending in Congress granting furtlier subsidies to the Pacific and other Railroads. No matter what may be said about the prospective benefit we are to derive from these roads, it is too long to wait, and we ' should make the best possible use of our present resources, without increasing the burden of our debt by incurring expensive risks which are hazardous.

STATE TREASCBER [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 8 January 1869

STATE TREASCBER The Republican Legislative caucus on Wednesday afternoon, nominated Robert W. Mackey, of Allegheny county, for State Treasurer, thus making a " yearling" ef Gen. W. W. Irwin, the present popular and capable officer. We have heard no reason assigned for this move ; meat, and regret that General Irwin has been thus overslaughed. We do not know the nominee, and have never heard anything of his political services.

THE tiOYEKfOITO ¦ *»!«* [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 8 January 1869

THE tiOYEKfOITO ¦ *»!«* The message of the Governor, which was read'in both Houses on Wednesday, is a highly interesting document, and entirely satisfactory to every Pennsylvania!!. It discusses the several public subjects most ably and clearly, but with such brevity as will assure its rending by the public generally. The financial affairs of the State are in a very satisfactory condition. When the Republican party came into power, in 1801, the State debt was 840,000,000. It isn o w only $1.V28G, {4C. During the last fiscal year, the amount paid was .1*4,417,40;!. The Governor recommends the sale of the bonds held by the State against the Pennsylvania Railroad, and the Philadelphia and Erie Railroad, to the highest bidders, and apply the proceeds to the further reduction of the State debt—anounting probably to nine or ten millions more. Whilst the Governor congratulates the people on the good progress made in reducing the debt, he calls attention to the fact that an enormous s...

A FAIR PROPOSITION. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 8 January 1869

A FAIR PROPOSITION. Inasmuch as getting money belonging to other people without their consent (we don't mean by stealing) is seemingly the order of the day, and as the power of getting it legally, by means of parliamentary tactics, is vested in the Legislature, aud as we are almost sure to fail in our effort to get the pasting and folding contract, we now submit a more dignified plan—a splendid thing—with much "in it." It is this: We know a number of business men in this city who have large sums of ready cash on deposit* in the several banks, which, we are confident, we might manage to draw out by means of checks purporting to be genuine, but in reality, to be prepared by a process which vulgar people call forgery. Hut, we believe there is an act of Assembly in one of the iKioks, or a jK'nal code, or something of that sort, which stigmatizes for gery as something even worse than a misdemeanor—a felony we believe, and a penitentiary offense. Now, we might propose to " set the...

CHEAP TITLES [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 8 January 1869

CHEAP TITLES The Reading Eayle of Saturday last : contains a well written article on "American Love ' of Titles." Persons who have i fairly earned them have good reason to be; proud. Rut, says the Eayle , the title of "Colonel" is now generally conferred ' upon every man who sells liquor, especially if he keeps a hotel, as a bumming place lor clever fellows. " Major" is now sup- : posed to indicate a jovial fellow, who is ; half intoxicated the greater part of his j time, and who is willing to do odd jobs for liquor, or who keeps up a good appearance by borrowing money from his friends. " General," in many instances, means a fat politician, who served in time of pence in the militia. " Esquire" is conferred upon everybody without distinction of race or color. The title of "Captain" and " Lieutenant" arc not generally acknowledged. The "Esquire" nuisance is generally confined to correspondence and newspaper articles. In spite of the editorial, however, looking over the local co...

THE SPEAKERS AND < LERKS. The two houses at Harrisburg, notwithstanding their afflictions, have Iwen peculiarly fortunate in their selection of men as their officers. Dr. Worthington, Speaker of the Senate , commands the respect and confidence of all, and the chair is filled with more than ordinary ability. G.W. Hamersl y, the veteran clerk, is too well and favorabl y known to need endorsement from any quarter. Col . Clark, the Speaker of the House, will make a courteous, able and popular Speaker. He is supported by General Selfridge, who, notwithstanding a well planned and powerful secret effort made by certain Legislative bummers, was triumphantly re-nominated and elected. Among the other officers we find the names of some well deserving and competent men, who will not fail to discharge their duties faitlifullv.
