"I mean just what I say. He would sell himself for money; and I believe he would sell his best friend, too/' "Of whom do you speak, ray son?" naked his mother, looking up from her work, and raising her spectacles. "I am speaking of Mr. Simmons ," replied Luke. " But what have you against him?" the old lady resumed. "I got nothing against him. I was only speaking of him as I thought." " But do yoiiknow we should not always tell just what we think, my son? It is not safe." . ." I believe it always safe to.fell the truth, no matter where it nits," returned Luke, "Then it would be proper fOT mo to go out and teU things I hear you and your wife say, and all that I aee yon do, no matter what rriay be their Character?"'

WRONG-DECIDEDLY [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 26 February 1869

WRONG-DECIDEDLY The Columbia Spy calls the pastors and folders at Ilarrisburg a "corrupt crew," and says they have been "loungingand sponging about the capitol." Now, we submit that they are not to blame. They wouldn't have been there, if " the members" had not taken them. Certainly, the Spy has "the wrong sow by the ear." Then to intimate that "the members" are trying to "use the pasters and folders as a means of obtaining money from the treasury to be divided between them and the members themselves,1 ' is perfectly awful I

LOOK TO THE SENATE [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 26 February 1869

LOOK TO THE SENATE The House of Representatives, at Ilarrisburg, has at last began to show signs of relenting, by adopting a resolution dismissing the illegal supernumeraries. But in doing so it framed the resolution so as to legalize their appointment and authorize the paying of them out of the State Treasury. It rests now with the Senate to decide whether the outrageous transaction of pensioning these twenty-seven men shall be endorsed, and the scheme even in part, succeed. It is not forgotten that these men were employed by the House, in the face of the law of last session, limiting the number to thirty-four, and also in the face of the fact that the Senate refused to pass the resolution of the House, at the commencement of the session, authorizing their appointment, and by this action represented truly the wishes of the Republicans of the State. Will the Senate recede f Why should it ?

ADMITTED [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 26 February 1869

ADMITTED We charged time and again that the reason why the number of employees were increased by the House, at Ilarrisburg, was not because they were necessary, but because every member wanted his man, to redeem promises made when they were candidates. Mr. Strang, of Tioga, has been very persistent in saying that they Were necessary, until last week, when he came down handsomely as follows: He said: "Sixty-one might be half a dozen more than were actually necessary for a rigidly economical administration of the House. But how was each man in the House to have one appointment t This was necessary to have harmony.'" A more shameless avowal was probably never made; but this is a specimen of the arguments made use of to sustain the act of extravagance.

BOW THEY LLEl [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 26 February 1869

BOW THEY LLEl A respectable colored man of Washington, addressed a note to Mayor Bo wen, the chairman of the committee on the sale of tickets for the Inauguration-Ball , asking whether any distinction on account of color is to be made in the sale of tickets. The Intelligencer could not help lying about It, and says, In Monday's issue, that Mayor Bowen, has addressed him a reply in which he says that "any person of respectability will be admitted to the ball , without respect to color." Now, Mayor Bowen said no sud'thing, but replied that .«, "Any person of respectable character and standing in this community, who applies and pays for a ticket to the Inaucurarien Ball, to be held in the north wing of the Treasury Department, will not be denied, at least so far as my action is concerned. The question of color never having arisen in the committee, I cannot of course decide for them." Who will not agree to give the palm for wilful, deliberate and premeditated lying to the pair of ...

A GOOD ONE. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 26 February 1869

A GOOD ONE. Somebody has perpetrated the following decidedly good thing on the senior editor of FATHER ABRAHAM , and his esteemed old friend, George Brubaker, Esq., now the learned District Attorney of this county, and as it appeared only in a paper published at Manheim , we trust our readers will not deem it egotistical on our part for giviug the story the benefit of our extensive circulation. It is too good to be lost. Here it is: "Some years ago, when Geo. Brubaker was Register of this county, he employed this same Ranch, editor of FATHBB ABRAHAM, as his clerk, at » salary of Ave htmdred dollars per annum, aud after being in his office three years, and taking in all the fees for Brubaker, he keeps an account of all the illegal foes ho charged in the absence of George, and when Brubaker's term expired Ranch boldly demanded half of the amount illegally collected, otherwise he threatened to prosecute his employer for misdemeanor in office. We are told that Brubaker had to divi...

ROMAN CATHOLICS IN OFFICE [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 26 February 1869

A BLACK RECORD [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 26 February 1869

A BLACK RECORD The " Observer" letters from Washington to Forney's Press , are inimitable in style and force. In one of a recent date we are reminded that in the past ten years the Democratic leaders have had a hundred opportunities to do right , and by so doing to endear the masses to their cause; but in no one instance have they seized the fitting moment to do the proper thing. Let us enumerate a few of the golden occasions which they neglected : 1. They forced James Buchanan to break his solemn pledge that the people of Kansas should vote without intervention on the subject of slavery. 2. They sustained the Lecompton bill, with all its atrocities, and ostracized every man in the party who would not endorse it. 3. They seconded the proscription of Stephen A. Douglas, because he insisted upon the doctrine ef popular sovereignty, and refused to support the Lecompton wrong. 4. They supported Jbhn C. Breckinridge for President in 1800, with the full knowledge that he was not the...

TEMPEST IN A TEA-POT [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 26 February 1869

TEMPEST IN A TEA-POT The Democracy of the State are growing quite lively over the Gubernatorial ques tion, and really talk and act as if it made any difference to the people whom they nominated for the office of Governor. By their caucuses and conventions and county committees, their elections of delegates, &c., they, doubtless, almost persuade themselves that they have something to do with the politics of the State. They even get up spirited contests between rival candates, and play sharp tricks in the election of delegates, as if it made any odds, when, all the time, the whole thing is merely the result of inveterate habit. They still play at the game of politics once a year, just as the ridiculous old militia muster used to be held, in which formidable squadrons marched with broomsticks , and charged sham fortifications with wooden swords, because there had once been a time when they were soldiers. The amusement is perfectly harmless , and affords those parti cipati...
