ip$ttUnne<m& THE DISGUISED HEIBE8S. Miss Vernon sat thoughtfully at her window plunged in deep thought. This need be scarcely wondered at, for the question upon which she was pondering affected her nearly. She was an heiress , having come into possession, at her majority,of fifty thousand dollars. She was prc-possessing in her appearance, and this, as was natural, as usual, was considerably exaggerated, brought her suitors in plenty. Among them she made choice of William Winsor. nnd in a few weeks they were to lie married. William was engaged in the wholesale clothing business, and bad the reputation of an active, sharp man of business. He was of good appearance , and so far as could be judged, was a good match for the heiress. Nothing to his prejudice had come to the ears of Miss Vernon, until the day before. A poor woman had come to the door in evident poverty, aud asked for relici. On being questioned , she said that she had been employed in making shirts a...

TO ALL CONCEBKED. We have a few plain words for tlm veiy few uneasy persons who take pleasure in denouncing FATIIKK AIIHAHAM for its course in exposing the peccadilloes of men holding public positions, to which they were elevated by the Republican party. We are ready to defend the principles of Republicanism at every hazard, but when the chosen representatives of the people, in anv position, betrays their trust, common Uoiusty, self-respect, and the welfare of the party alike demand their unqualified coudenm.ition. and they shall receive it at our hands. We shall not be deterred by the silly cry, "youare injuring tho party."' Neither friend or foe shall be spared. Neither money nor patronage shall turn us from the right as we are enabled to sec the right. When the people will not support us in this position, we will try some other honest calling.

Clad to hear it! But, if true, to whom are the people indebted for it, Mr. Bcrgner? Why to tho independent Republican press, and to the Senate which "squelched" the proposition to repeal the excellent law of last session. " Honor to whom honor is due."

THAT "HISTORY." [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 12 February 1869

THAT "HISTORY." "Jolly Jack," of the Examiner informed his readers three weeks ago, that somebody in Harrisburg had promised him a "History." As we supposed, that was an attempt to "bluff." We had to call on him time and again for it. Well, on Wednesday last, lo! the threatened "history" made its appearance , but it was Jack^s own. The "mild junior" received a gratuity in 1807, as a reporter , of £200, along with his associates in both Houses! Jack abandons the charge of "snaking" it through. In five years, the aforesaid *' mild junior" received a legal appropriation of 8200—not any more than Jack took as stationery, in violation of law , any one year of the live he served in the Legislature. That's the "history," and if it Will help "our fellers," well. Try again, Jackl
