A storm had raged all day; the bellowing blast carry ing with it dirt and line particles of sand, antil the cloud was not only blinding, bat till it was next to impossible for a human b eing to venture from under cover without having tho very flesh lacerated or peeled from his bones. Tents lay scattered and rent in every direction, and even some of the "dobie" quarters had been levelled with their mother earth. Indeed, Fort Sedgwick presented much such an appearance as mig ht have been expected had a band of Sioux Indians made a successful assault upon the place. As the darkness camo on, the wind ceased to some extent, and then a steady storm set tn, almost as terrible as was the sand tempest of the day. It was densely stork, ana this darkness was f ivorable to the movements of a savage band, who had lurked in a shallow ravine behind the bluflfe , back about two miles from the Platte river.

A good wife rone from her bad one morn, And thought with a nervous dread Of the piles of clothes to be washed, and more Than a doaen months to he fed; There's the meals to get for the men in the field, And the children to flx away To school, and the milk to be skimmed and churned; And all to be dona thia day. It had rained in the night, and all the woo* Wan wet aa it could be; There ware puddinga and piet to bake, besides A loaf of cake for tea. And the day was het, and her aching head Throbbed weaawy as she aaid: "If maidens but knew what good wives know, They would be in no haate to wed!" "Jennie, what doyen think I told Ben Brown?" Called the farmer from the well; And a flush crept up to his bronzed brow, And his eyes half bashfully fell; " It was this," he said—and coming near, He smiled, and stooping down, Kissed her cheek—"'Twas this: that you were the best And dearest wife in town!" The farmer went back to the field, and the wife, In a smil...

J. W. FISHEK. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 15 January 1869

J. W. FISHEK. The Intelligencer of Tuesday last week, does injustice to General Fisher, one of the Senators from this county, in saying that had he seconded Mr. Billingfelt's motion, the proposition of Messrs. Ranch & Cochran, to contract for the pasting and folding for the Legislature would have heen accepted, and this would have saved thousands of dollars to the State. The fact is that Mr. Billingfelt's amendment Was ruled out of order by the Speaker, on the ground that the existing law-passed in 18C8, and referred to in our last issue, provides for the election of a limited number of pasters and folders. The Intelligencer also unjustly accuses Gen. Fisher of buncumb in regard to some half a dozen copies of Purdon's Digest. The fact is that Mr. Fisher's amendment, if adopted, would' have saved just 20 copies Of the Digest, at $10each, $'200, and twenty-six copies of the Manual at 82 each, $52., in all f 320.00. The accusation of the Intelligencer, therefore, is entir...

AN OUTRAGEOUS CHARGE [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 15 January 1869

AN OUTRAGEOUS CHARGE The Scranton .Republican has the boldness to insinuate that money is used in procuring legislation and offices at Harrisburg. Were it necessary we could easily disprove this assertion, bj' gentlemen from this very town—men who were never known to lie, or do any other dishonest act. As for our own Representatives they are above suspicion. They, or some ot them, may be poor, but they are honest, and everybody knows it. They can't be bought. When they come to vote for Senator, for Treasurer, or upon any subject of public importance, they only conaider merit, and . vote conscientiously, consistently and honestly, as they understand it, and as they are instructed by their Mends, who wouldn't deceive them for all the world.

RAD NEWS FROM HARRLSBURG I [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 15 January 1869

RAD NEWS FROM HARRLSBURG I Acecrding to our Ilarrisburg correspondent it would seem that notwithstanding all that has been said about the wholesale extravagance and most barefaced system of peculation which characterized the House of Representatives last year, the same outrageous system, as far as the House is concerned, has already been consummated, by the passage of a joint resolution to appoint twentyseven additional "Pasters and Folders," at an expense of not less than $600 each, making an extra grab into the people's treasury of not less than sixteen thousand two hundred dollars! These twenty-seven additional Pasters and Folders and the twelve previously appointed by virtue of the law of 1868—ten at a salary of $600 each and two at $800 each, making $7,600, which added to the 816,200 extra grab, foots up a total of $23,800, for doing the work which we offered to do, under heavy bond, for $5,000, and make money even at that. Thus have our Representatives deliberately, re...

A REttlSTRY LAW [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 15 January 1869

A REttlSTRY LAW We aotice with pleasure that the Governor, in his message, calls the attention of the Legislature to the importance of the passage of a registry law. There should be no postponement of this subject —no shrinking of responsibility by our Legislature— for the evil of illegal voting is growing to an alarming extent. The Governor well remarks: " Every proper facility for the naturalisation of jcitizens of foreign birth should be afforded ; but the legislature, In Its combined wisdom, can surely enact some mode to prevent the possibility of a single vote being cast uponspurioes naturalisation papers, and thus fully secure the purity of the elective, franchise."

RETRENCHMENT [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 15 January 1869

RETRENCHMENT We again call the attention of our readers to the " short, sharp aud decisive" paragraph in the Governor's message on the above subject. It will bo well for our Legislators to keep it before them. The people are in no humor to be deceived in this matter, and they will not be: " Retrenchment is emphatically demanded by the people, in the legislative expenditures, as well as in every other branch of the government. TAeir eyes are open to investigate every transaction, and by their ballots art ready to strike down those who will not take efedivc action in favor of positive and radical reform. The mone/ 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 nay be appropriated or expended."
