J^WV^^VV ^^^**W^ HT»W|B"*) [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 22 January 1869

J^WV^^VV ^^^**W^ HT»W|B"*) LOAF, THE BOOTBLACK. "Shine 'em up?—On'jr five cento!" This was Loaf, the bootblack. He was nicknamed "Loaf" by his friends because he was the hardest working, toughest little bootblack known to the fraternity, The " On'y five cents !" was a call for trade, and not by any means intended to be taken in a literal sense ; and most of Loafs customers saw it in that light, especially when aided by that miraculous polish which the boy invariably brought to the surface of the most disheartening clodhoppers; and few ever refused the "tenner," or asked change. Loafs legitimate appellation was Clem (short for Clement) Brown. His mother was an American woman, whose husband had gone the way of many other good Americans in the national pride of country, as exemplified by his fondness for the national beverage, Bourbon! The senior Brown, who had been a handsome, meritorious and successful barkeeper, had discovered Annie Carter, the daughter of a wealthy man in a...

%g**m- 50TRTNG BUT LEAVES. Nothing but leaves. The spirit grieves Over a wasted life; Sin committed while conscience slept, Promises made and never kept; Hatred, battles and strife-Nothing but leaves. Nothing but leaves; no gathering sheaves Of fife's fair ripened grain ; Words ; idle words, for earnest deeds; We sow our seeds—lo 1 tares and weeds We reap for toll and pain-Nothing but loaves. Nothing but leaves; memory weaves No veil to screen the past; As we retrace our weary way, Counting each lost and "misspent day, We sadry find at last Nothing bat leaves. And shall we meet our Father so . Bearing onr withered leaves ? The Saviour looks for perfect fruit—We stand before Him, humbled, mate, Writing tike words Ho breathes—Nothing bat leaves.

GOOD NEWS FROM HARBISBURe. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 22 January 1869

GOOD NEWS FROM HARBISBURe. We last week referred to the outrageous attempt made by our representatives to repeat last year's pasting and folding grab, by passing a joint resolution appointing twenty-seven additional "officers"—Pasters and Folders—over and above the number authorized by law. We then expressed the hope that this most iniquitous scheme would receive its quietus in the Senate, or, if necessary, a prompt veto from our honest and faithful Governor. We were not disappointed. Thanks to the Republican Senate, the honor of the Republican party of Pennsylvania has been preserved, and the interests of every tax-payer protected. The bill which passed the House, after having been referred to the appropriate committee of the Senate—on Retrenchment and Reform, of whieh Hon. Esaias Billingfelt, of the Old Guard is chairman—was promptly reported with a negative recommendation, which ended the matter for that time. By this result, the Pasting and Folding leak has been stopped—...

COP. REPEATERS [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 22 January 1869

COP. REPEATERS The committee on the case of Brown vs. Witham, contestants for a seat in the House at Harrisburg, examined five witnesses on Tuesday evening. Michael Slavan and Christian Lamb testified to having voted the Democratic ticket twenty times, generally under assumed names. Daniel Redding testified to having voted the same ticket ten times. Henry Mitchell testified that he followed a party of men to several precincts, who voted the Democratic ticket a number of times. He attempted their arrest, but failed for want of a warrant. Alfred M. Fields, who accompanied this witness, corroborated his evidence in full. This is a sample of the scoundrelism of Coppcrheadism, under the lead of Win. A. Wallace.

WHAT OTHERS SA1 [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 22 January 1869

WHAT OTHERS SA1 The Lewisburg Chronicle talks of the pasting and folding job in this wise. "Hear ye him:" "Well, Messrs. Ranch & Cochran, who offered to do the pasting and folding for the House of Reps, at Harrisburg at a figure that would save thousands of dollars to the State, are, in popular (and doubtless Pean'a Legislative) parlance, "euchred," and the job farmed out to a lot of fellows for a much higher figure. In conversation with some who know all about such matters, wo are told that we don't understand why it is so. Very good; we confess to a reasonable amount of stupidity, and in a case of this sort, a very large amount. There are so many ropes and strings and wires to pull, and axes to grind beneath the Harrisburg town clock that we become mystified. It may be more advantafeous to the State to pay $7,600 instead of 5,000 for the same services; but, owing to the thickness of our "crust," we can't quite *' see it." The members of the Legislature perhaps think ...

UNITED STATES SENATORS. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 22 January 1869

UNITED STATES SENATORS. It is with great satisfaction we announce that General Carl Schurz, one of the most gifted orators of the country and sound patriot and statesman, has been nominated by the Republicans of Missouri as the successor in the United States Senate of that renegade and traitor, John B. Henderson. By this nomination the Republicans being in the majority in the Legislature, his election is secured. Thus another of the recreants has received his deserts. James Dixon, of Conn., another the of seven Judas Iscariots, vacates his seat on the 4th of March next to ex-Governor W. A. Buckingham, a Radical of the right stamp. Governor W. G. Brownlow, the war horse of Tennessee, succeeds that traitor D. T. Patterson. That sneaking conservative, Jos. R. Doolittle, of Wisconsin, will retire next month to give place to a Republican to be elected from that State. West Virginia, another of the States so shamefully betrayed, will reject her betrayer, Peter G. Van Winkle. On th...

A ROOSTER. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 22 January 1869

A ROOSTER. Col. Kleckner, one of the members of the House of Representatives from Philadelphia, on Monday last, in his usual classic way, pronounced Mr.E. II. Rauch a "Rooster." Last year, when Mr. Kleckner conceived the idea of introducing a resolution (for buncombe) complimenting the United States Senate for reinstating Hon. Edwin M. Stanton as Secretary of War, and not having brains enough to write it, he called on " the same rooster" to do it for him, and he did. See Legislative Record , 1868, page 79. If Col. K., or Mr. Strang, or any other "feller" of the paste ring want some stories told out of school, this "Rooster" will cheerfully accommodate them.

THE MAM [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 22 January 1869

THE MAM The Bedford Inquirer , in a pointed article on the performance of the members of the House at Harrisburg, on "pasting and folding," exclaims: " Oh! for just one man who could forget policy and devote himself to the promotion of honesty aud economy—who would dare to stand up for the right aud leave his chances of re-election with his constituents." Lancaster county has just such a man In the State Senate, and fortunately he is Chairman of the Committee on Retrenchment and Reform. AVT c allude to the Hon. E. Billingfelt, and as long as he is Chairman of that Committee, all projects to deplete the Treasury, that come under its jurisdiction, will receive their quiet us, just as the "pasting and folding" dodge did last week.

TERROR IK TENNESSEE, [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 22 January 1869

TERROR IK TENNESSEE, Letters have been received in Washingtun by a Southwestern member of Congress, detailing outrages in the State of Tennessee. It is stated that two loyal men were killed in Franklin county on the day of the election, and another taken lVoni jail and hung in tin-court houseyard. Nobody knows who committed these acts. A letter IVoni Shelbyville. dated January 11th. says: "In a recent tight the 'Kuklux' were badly whipped, tint they threaten to crime a tlicm ' saml strung from Lincoln anil Marshall counties. They were about thirty in number, ununited on horseback and drove into tin? public square, blowing; whistles ami yelling like devils. They then moved down the Murfreeshoro pike, and as they appeared near Duulap's they were tired into and six of Ilium wounded.

DEMOCRATIC ELECTIOK FRAUDS. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 22 January 1869

DEMOCRATIC ELECTIOK FRAUDS. The contested election cases of Philadelphia are progressing, and with such results as to leave no doubt about the final success of the Republican candidates. Hon. Leonard Myers, Republican Congressman, has already proven more than enough of fraudulent votes to overcome the majority returned against him. In a single precinct which returned 627 ballots, only 572 votes were polled, and the return made to read 674 votes. The fraud was committed very bunglingly, however, for in adding names to the list, so as to correspond with the stuffed ballots, they wrote the names down in alphabetical order, one commencing with A, 5 with B, 9 with C, 15 with D, and BO on. The mere ultimate success of the Republican candidates, who were counted out by these frauds, is not sufficient. The perpetrators ought to go to the Penitentiary, each for ten years at least. This would perhaps assure us honest elections In the future.

CONGRESS [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 22 January 1869

CONGRESS The Senate was engaged till Priday in discussing the Sue Murphy claim, occupying all the time, except what was taken up by current business, such as receiving and referring petitions, resolutions, <&c. Miss Murphy was referred to the appropriate committee, where she will be likel y to stay for this session. But let her hold on. She will triumph after a while, as the woman did some years ago with a horse claim. The Senate refused to allow the capitol building to be used for an Inauguration Ball. Bight. A bill was introduced to pay the widow of President Lincoln a pension, which was referred. One was also introduced to amend the Tenure of Office act. They will be apt to pass the House bill to repeal it.
