ptettUantow. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 19 February 1869

ptettUantow. THE SILVER TOKEN. " There , Tina!" Mr. Bruce Medway triumphantly held up two semi-circles of silver in the air, so that they might be sure to make sufficient impression on Ernestine Cady's blue eyes, and smiled with the exultant satisfaction one who feels that he has accomplished his mission! He was a bright, earnest-looking young fellow, with gray-brown eyes and a square firm mouth — not handsome, but very manly; and as he sat there on the green wood land bank, with the hair thrown back from his broad forehead , and the sunshine mirrored in his eyes, you felt instinctively that he was one who would make his way in the world, no matter what obstacles might intervene. Ernestine Cady stood leaning against the guarded, mossy trunk of an immense chestnut-tree with her little feet buried in ,plumes of noddiug, fragrant ferns—rural picture in blue muslin and fluttering azure ribbons. She was very pretty, with the delicate bloom and freshness of a flower—a flower that wi...

What though the.sky is heavy with clouds, Or shining a field of blue, If the bleak wind blows, Or the sunshine glows, Still, " paddle your own canoe." What if breakers rise up ahead, With dark waves rushing through, More steadily try, With steadfast eye, To " paddle your own canoe." If a hurricane rise in the midnight skies, And the stars are lost to view, Guide safely along, With smile and song, And "paddle your own canoe." Up this world, and down this world, Over this world, and through, Though weary and worn, Bereft, forlorn, Still " paddle year own canoe." Never give up when trials come—Never grow sad and blue; Never sit down With a tear or frown, But " paddle your own canee." There are daisies springing along the shores, Blooming and sweet for you; There are rose-hued dyes In the autumn skies—Then...

REBELS COMING [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 19 February 1869

REBELS COMING Under the supposed protection of Andrew Johnson's Amnesty Proclamation, John C. Breckinridge has ventured back to the United States. He is the first of the expatriated Rebels, excepted in previous amnesty proclamations, who lias returned. He will probably be soon followed by Jacob Thompson, Slidcll and Judah Benjamin, and possibly all of th'-rm will ask some reward of the Rebels in consequence of their sufferings. The last public appearance of Breckinridge, previous to his going over to the Rebels, was at Baltimore, and in the same city he makes his reappearance.

OH, SHAME 1 [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 19 February 1869

OH, SHAME 1 On the 11th hist., at Richmond, Va., the Attorney General of the U. S. had nol. pros, entered in the cases of Jeff. Davis, Wade Hampton, Gen. Lee, II. A. Wise, and a large number of other leading rebels, who were indicted for treason, and they were discharged. Here ends another chapter in the history of the rebellion, and it is not only humiliating, but a tame and disgraceful submission to the right of any section of the country to make war upon the flag, without fear of punishment. No other country on earth would have submitted to a proposition like this. Time will show whether this " magnanimity" will pay. The great question now is—can a government live, that cannot punish its greatest critnintffs—the men who declare war against it, and fight to destroy it?

THE FRUITS. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 19 February 1869

THE FRUITS. The appropriation bill as reported verifies our prediction of yesterday, that the expenses of the present House will be some fifty thousand dollars less than they were in former years, and that the general appropriations are reduced about one million of dollars.— Harritburi TtUgrapk. So much is due to the lalx>rs of the Republican press in the cause of retrenchment, in which the Telegraph did wot participate. Who will pretend for a single moment that but for the demand that went up from all quarters of the State , such a result would have been reached ? We have Bald from the beginning that the Republican party would correct the errors of its own agents, and prove itself worth y of the confidence reposed in it by the people; and it will have done so to the fullest extent when the Legislature cuts loose from the supernumeraries and provides for the payment of the regular officers only, provided for in the law of last session. The people are watching the action...

BRIDGES. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 19 February 1869

BRIDGES. "A paper published in this city," (we will not give its name, or we might advertise it, you know!) which represents the "monument," (may-be it will be known by that!) conies to the rescue of the Commissioners on the Bridge building business. Well, the design of our article last week was to defend the County Auditors from the attack which had l*jen made upon them by this "paper published in this city," which, as the organ of the Thugs, had to say something in defence of the action of the Commissioners. If we tread on the toes of the masters of the paper alluded to, we can't help it. The people understand the matter, and with them wc are content to leave it, after rrablishingthe testimony of two citizens relative to Lutz's bridge, for which 8147:$ was paid by the Commissioners, whose character the said paper, or no other man, will dare to attack.

A NEW ERA [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 19 February 1869

A NEW ERA It is a very encouraging sign of the times to hear every now and then an unmistakable intimation from General Grant that he means to insist upon thorough and radical reform in every department of the general government, and that in making his principal appointments he means to keep clear of the bold and bad politicians of the party who are notoriously dishonest, reckless and corrupt. Beyond this but little is known as to the programme of the new President. His coming in, and the going out ef Andrew Johnson, on the 4th of next month, will complete the great work of reconstruction, and the people will then begin to enjoy the wholesome fruits of the grand Republican victory on the 3rd of November last. The whisky rings, political brokers and jobbers, treasury plunderers, and thieves , generally, know and feel that their days are numbered, and that they will have no confederates in high places under President Grant. The manner in which Governor Geary stood by the rights ...

A HEW CANDIDATE. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 19 February 1869

A HEW CANDIDATE. The Mauch Chunk Gazette is out in favor of General William Lilly, as the Republican candidate for Governor. He is a gentleman in whom the people might safely confide. He was formerly a democrat—up to 1858, when he became identified with Douglass in opposition to the Lecompton outrage , and at the commencement of the war he was found squarely on the side of the country. Pew men in the State did as much for the cause as General L. He is one of the leading coal operators of the Upper Lehigh region, a gentleman of strict integrity, of extensive business experience and thoroughl y posteeMa the political affairs of state and natio&V 0*ln three hundred and twelve hours from 12 o'clock, M. to day, the country will be rid of Andrew Johnson!

A NEWSPAPER REFORM. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 19 February 1869

A NEWSPAPER REFORM. The size of the Reading Daily .Eagle has been reduced about one-half, and the price from ten to six cents per week. It contains, however, quite as much reading matter as before, which fact is explained in an editorial of the paper, as follows: "Some of our friends arc dissatisfied with the present size of the Eagle. We will give them sound, reliable reading matter in a small paper, in preference to a paper filled with long advertisements of quack medicines, which are of no account to the public, but of absolute injury to the morals of the community, and utterly unfit to appear in apaper read in any respectable family. We will carry this enterprise through." The reason contained in the above is a good one, and the stand taken by the publisher* of tlie.^k commendable. Though now very small, is a clean sheet. And considering the fact that the proprietors are men of ample means, having one of the most extensive printing offices in the State, and a business bu...
