PteUfttteouA [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 29 January 1869

PteUfttteouA MINNIES CHOICE. BY EMILY MACKINTOSH. "You must come home with mc, Minnie.'' "No, no! What claim have I upon you Laura, that should make me go to you now? No, I will do something for myself—teach, or' write, or sew—something! There is some niche vacant waiting for me." 41 The niche my sister's death left vacant years ago. Minnie, dailing, we have been sisters in love ever since our school days; let ns be sisters still. I am wealthy, you are left poor by this day's sad work ; now let me plead for your presence, your love I Come home with me! You may sew, teach, write, anything you will—but let my home be yours. You are too young to live alone; come, brighten my father's life and mine." And after much pleading, the young petitioner won Minnie to her will. The pretty, childlike girl, who that day had buried her father, having been motherless from infancy, was indeed too young, too innocent and lovely to live alone in this cold, censorious world. She had been the pette...

A REMOmmtAXCE FROM VIRGINIA. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 29 January 1869

A REMOmmtAXCE FROM VIRGINIA. The President of the United States Senate presented on Friday a remonstrance from Chas. King, D. D., a resident of Staunton, Va., against the removing of the disabilities of rebel officers. He says: "The rumor of it creates a panic among Union men. If you relieve these rebel judges we are politically ruined. For God's sake, Interpose and prevent this. It is false to say that we have not Union men to fill the principal oraces. and if not, let them remain vacant srnrll they can be filled with good men from the loyal State*. Save us from the tender mercies of wicked, persecuting rebels. The restrictive measure* in the reconstruction acts and the fourteenth amendment, and in our nropoend constitution, are our only hope. If yoa wiU hold the rebels in check until we can adopt the riew constitution, then, perhaps, as they Mag f«Mh fruit* meet for repentance, they may gradually and individually be relieved from the curse of a broken and violated Jajrjbtt* ...

FACTS AND FIGURES I [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 29 January 1869

FACTS AND FIGURES I There are just four papers claiming to be Republican who are reckless enough to uphold and defend the notorious Treasury robbers, who figure at Hardsburg ia the capacity of Representatives. One of these, the Inquirer of this city, makes some very daring assertions, to which we refer in another column.

TBE CUT OF BEADim [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 29 January 1869

TBE CUT OF BEADim The Republicans of the city of Reading have nominated a ticket, which ought to be, and, if but an ordinary effort be made, will be triumphantly elected next month. The nominee for Mayor, Hon. J. Pringle Jones , formerly President Judge of the Courts of Berks county, is unquestionably one of the fittest ,men that could possibly have been selected, and if chosen, will reflect much honor upon the third city in the Stats. Col. " vTHJuun T. Walter , the candidate for Treasurer, is also a gentleman of very superior business qoahfleations, and well deserves tho position on accoont of his faithful services in the fi flld. - The several ward nominations are also excellent, and calculated to poll a full vets.' If every Republican will do his duty, there will be a clean Republican victory—Mayor, Treasurer, Auditor, Councils and all,

A RIP VAN WINKLE " It is also to be taken into account that this law of 18G8 reduced the pay of all the employees of the two Houses , and wili, if left alone, work a saving of many thousands to the State. Instead of being abused, as the Republican members of the Legislature have been, for adheriug to this law, they deserve much credit for its passage, originally, and for their present persistence in its enforcement. "—Pittsburg Gazette. 11ns the editor of the Gazette been asleep?

THE CAMPAIGN OF 1869 [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 29 January 1869

THE CAMPAIGN OF 1869 A meeting of the Republican State Committee lias been called by Hon. Cf. A. Grow, the Chairman, to be held at Harrisburg on the 4th of February, next Thursday, for the purpose of fixing the time and place for the holding of the next State Convention, to nominate candidates for Governor and Judges of the Supreme Court. That Governor Geary will be nominated for re-election there seems to be but little doubt, and the nomination of Judge Williams, who was cheated out of his election in 1807, by Copperhaad frauds in Philadelphia, chiefly, is equally certain. Yet the holding of the Convention at an earl y day seems to be a necessity for other reasons. An early opening of the campaign will enable the Republicans every where to get rid of the plunderers at Harrisburg, and the nomination of good and honest men to represent them in the next Legislature. ^ . ^ — THE PASTEB AND FOLDER MUDDLE.— The muddle of the Paster and Folder "humbug" at Harrisburg, still agitates ...

THE STATE TREASURER [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 29 January 1869

THE STATE TREASURER A correspondent of the Philadelphia Inquirer, writing from Harrisburg, referring to the election of State Treasurer, says: " Three Republican Senators—Messrs. Morrow B. Lowry, of Erie; E. Blllingfelt and Gen. Fisher, of Lancaster—refused to vote for the nominee of the caucus. They made no public expression of opinion, and gave no public reasons for their course, but it is understood that they were guided by a Btorn sense of propriety in refusing, at the behest of a certain well-known politician of this State, to displace from office the present Stat* Treasurer, who has ably fulfilled hi* duties. The bold and independent course taken by these three Senators has excited much favorable comment."

D1HOCBATB BOUGHT AW© BO»D. The Columbia Herald, (Cop.) begins to find out that even democratic members of the Legislature can be bribed: " Where were Beard, Breen, Brobst, Creitz, Fogel, Kase, Nelson, Neil, Playford, Place and Stout, Democratic members of the House, when the vote was taken upon the passage of the first section of the bill extending the term of the Receiver of Taxes ? Is it possible that they have played us false—for a consideration ? Is it possible that they have sold their party and their honor for a bribe ? We hope that it is not so, but appearance* are against them. Let us have light." That's right neighbor—keep a sharp eye on "your fellers," for they are very hungry, and cold, and demoralized, and ne ed close watching.
