V What Party Does the Retrenching. ' [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 3 July 1868
V What Party Does the Retrenching. ' Our Democratic opponents are constantly :rying out for retrenchiribnt and reform, but when it in proposed practically id enter- on the performance, of such work , the Democracy are nil*sing when their votes are needed. It i.s conceded that; iii'; affairs of the national iiiiniinistration aro conducted entirely underthe inspiration of Democratic influence. Every Department, but that of War, is controlled by the Democracy. The moment the war ended, Congress began to cut down public expense s , while General Grant lost no time iu imustering out large bodies of men. The last Congress so retrenched as to be able to reduce taxation *120,'*00 , 000. This fact is never allowed to see the light of day in any of our Democratic cotemporaries. Another singular fact is.that the present Congress has reduced the estimates for appropriations to carry on all the Departments of the <'overninent. The srrm asked by the State Department has been material...

Untitled Article [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 3 July 1868
j AN article is going the rounds of the press, stating that a child died at Temple Station, Berks county, from the effects of a locust sting. We are assured by a gentleman residing at the Temple, that there is no truth in the story, which was started by an irresponsible Copperhead paper published at Reading.
The Minister's Wife. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 3 July 1868
The Minister's Wife. A TALE OF WESTERN LIFE. One day, in early winter, my husband received a summons to Burke's settlement, to unite a couple in the bond* of wedlock. It was ( specially requested that his wi#e showl-d accompany him, as he would be expected to remain over night a*&*\ partake of the festivities. It was twejity miles to the settlement , and we arrived" afc the log house of Mr. Burke abouf noon.. A dozen tow-haired children were at yie door* awaiting our arrival. They telegraphed the news instantly. '"Maim, niarml lu-fce'e the elder and his woman. The're nothing but folks! She's got a man's hat on, and a turkey's wing in front of it; lus nose is just like dad's—as crooked as a cow horn squash." Alas for Mr. Morrison's aquiline nose, of which he was very vain.

Organize Kow! [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 3 July 1868
Organize Kow! Republicans of Pennsylvania! Remember that we were beaten in 1867 because our organization was neglected until tbe eleventh hour of the campaign, whilst the enemy were constantly at work, and thoroughly organized. We have in Pennsylvania a clear Republican majority of twenty-five thousand, but, to secure it we must poll our entire vote, and this can only be done by being thoroughly organized, and by constant work in every village and hamlet. Grant and Colfax clubs should be organized at once. The intelligent young men of the party must take the matter in hand, and canvass every ward, borough and township. We must ascertain our strength ip every district. Wholesome Repulflican reading matter should be placed within the reach of every voter in the State, and thus every doubtful man may be secured,* aud a glorious victory be made certain. . Again we say, organize now.
A Mean "Xif/oer." [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 3 July 1868
A Mean "Xif/oer." A friend who came from the West 0:1 ; Tuesday last called at the oflice of j FATHER ABRAHAM and related a most infamously disgraceful scene witnessed I liy himself on the train between Pitts- j burg and Lancaster. A number of j drunken delegates to the Five Points Democratic Convention were aboard, hailing from Kentucky, Ohio and Indidiana, and a few from Mississippi. They had with them a full blooded citizen "' of African descent, who was vean enough, not only to suck bad whiskey out of the same bottle with these filthy copperheads, but he also permitted them to embrace and hug him in the most affectionate manner, in the presence of respectable passengers, and in broad daylight! Of course the *•' nigger" was drunk also, which fact may furnish some sort of an excuse for the lasting disgrace which he S has brought upon his race by such social j familiarity with copperheads! 1 *ia
Darkies "Cheating" Democrats. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 3 July 1868
Darkies "Cheating" Democrats. A copperhead the other day comp lained of certain alleged election fraudcommitted by negro voters down South. Now that is decidedly interesting—copperheads whining about being cheated b\ poor, '* ignorant, uneducated plantation niggers!" If it is really true that the Southern darkies have succeeded in cheating retru lar copperhead politicians, the question as, to their fitness to handle the ballot with credit to themselves and benefit to the country may be regarded as settled. " The colored troops fought bravely, "' and the colored voters vote nobly!

||a%r f^ra^ams jptys [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 3 July 1868
||a%r f^ra^ams jptys ON last Saturday ni ght, between 11 and 12 o'clock, in a Democratic saloon at Sixth and Benjamin streets, Reading, a young man named William Spotts was shot in the stomach liy a Democrat named Edward Murphy. It is said that he intended to shoot one Killian, and hit Spotts in a mistake. Of course he was in the usual condition of a radical democrat, which accounts for the mistake in hitting the wrong man. DAY' by day the Richmond Enquirer and Examiner reiterate-) its demand that Conservative employers shall discharge freedmen who presume to vote; and it asserts that it teels "quite flattered" by the denunciations with which its proposal has been visited b y some of the Radical papers in the North. Its programme, it says, is very simple: "Employment and no vote, or vote and starve." • So, boys! a final bumper, While we all in chorus chant—" For next President we nominate Our own Ulysses Grant!" And if asked what State he haiis from, This our sole reply shall ...

Copperhead Argument. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 3 July 1868
Copperhead Argument. As a specimen of Copperhead argument since the uonrtnatiou of Grant for President, we e«-py the following from a neighboring Copperhead sheet: " "Some time ago. General Grant stas^e*;ed to church, passed the hour of a*tviee in drunken sleep", and when the congregation were dismissed, attempted to walk out of a gothic window. Reaching his residence at last, he fell insensible on the door steps." Probably, when he penned this, the editor had been smelling of his favorite " red eye," and was in that happy condition when all surrounding objects took the shape of his own fancies, or, to use an old comparison, like thc squaw when she saw the whole regiment drunk.
Grant's Silence. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 3 July 1868
Grant's Silence. The Copperhead press abuse Grant be- I cause he says so little. We agree with the Harrisburg Telegraph that,in this age of endless talk and no work , for which so many of our public men are remark- able, wo consider Grant's silence refreshing. The great trouble iu our politics is, that our public men talk too much and do too little. Had the impeachment trial not been delayed for weeks by the Niagra of speech with which the Senate was drenched, the country would not have witnessed thc spectacle of the mountain of words laboring and bringing forth the mouse of acquittal. We have been afflicted with one President given to many speeches, or rather speaking the fame speech over many times; let us have a President who knows how to hold hitongue properly.
