Jflrtnj. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 5 March 1869

Jflrtnj. INAUGURATION ODE. MARCH 4, 1869. What song should hail the welcome hour That sees the nation waiting stand, To place the emblems of its power Within Hie hero's faithful hand? Resounding notes of martial fame, Mix with the patriot's full acclaim. Without surcease ; While gentler strains the breezes hear On vernal wings, and everywhere Rises the sentiment and prayer, " Lot us have Peace !" Knough that War's fell rage is spent, And freedom still survives secure ; Her statute loftier and unbent, Her strength increased, her vesture pure. The fame his country well bestows Upon the chief who crushed her foes All climes increase; But nobler rings o'er land and main, And nobler echoes back again, The manly, Christian, sweet refrain, " Let us have Peace 1" There, from New England's busy mills ; From where the Mississippi flows ; From where the bursting cotton fills The golden airs with mimic snows ; From where the gleaming nuggets shiue Close neighbors of the fruitful vine—They...

father lUmtliam'ss €U\p. ANDREW JOHNSON is going to Europe. Poor Europe ! " OLD PLUTO" is the latest rebel nickname for Senator Brownlow. Cut UMBERS are now seen on the streets of New York. THE Governor has granted a respite to Eaton, the murder of Ileenan, who was to have been hanged on Thursday. A MAN in Ohio is father of Ave boys named Fremont, Lincoln, Grant, Sherman and Sheridan. A BOTTOMLESS pit has just been found in Tennessee. A good opening for Andrew Johnson. JOHN ERRICSON, the builder of the Monitor and that class of ships, died in New York last week. AFTER Grant's in-ai<(/ttr-ation we suppose he will fully understand what it is to be bored. THE Mountour Amerkan says they have a grubbing machine at Danville, but says nothing about the grabbing machines at Ilarrisburg. THE Park Savings Bank in Brooklyn was robbed, Saturday, of a small tin box containing 845,000 in city bonds and ?400 in money. No arrests. GENERAL SAMSON , a native of Windham county, Ct., and f...

GOOD It is said that Secretary Seward has K»onted leave of absence to several of our Ministers abroad, «~i -i-nons them oncfor Reverdy Johnson, who, it is unaeisvo».i, desires to return to the United States for a short time. Gen. Grant will doubtless extend Mr. Johnson's leave of absence indefinitely, and send to England a Minister who will assert the dignity of the Republic, instead of hob-nobbing with the builders of piratical cruisers and Rebel sympathizers. So mote it be.

THE SPRING ELECTIONS [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 5 March 1869

THE SPRING ELECTIONS As the time for the holding of the Spring Elections is rapidly approaching, the Republicans should, in every district, keep in view the great importance of securing a majority of election officers. The stupendous frauds committed by our opponents, in all parts of the State, at the elections of 1808,should not be forgotten, and to guard against similar outrages at the gubernatorial election next fall, let Republicans elect as many judges as possible, andthus confine such frauds to districts in which the copperheads have a clear majority. For other good reasons , every Republican ¦ vote should be polled.

ORDER NO. 1 Yesterday General Grant moved on the enemy's works at Washington. He occupies the White House, taking care to protect his rear by confiding his late position to the personal direction of Lieut. General Sherman. From his new post President Grant has issued orders commanding the legions under the direction of General Economy, General Retrenchment and General Reform, to move into line and align with the right resting on the pillar of Public Opinion. General Satisfaction will personally commend President Grant, if these orders be promptly and faithfully obeyed.

THE FACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 5 March 1869

THE FACTS. Congress has distinctly specified how a certificate of election to either of its branches shall be drawn and what it shall set forth. It has, furthermore, forbidden the Clerk to put on the roll before the organization the names of any persons who do not present such certificates. The Representatives elect from Georgia, Louisiana, and the Hid aud I Vth Districts of South Carolina do not present such certificates. There, in a nut-shell, is the case about which the copperhead papers are giving themselves so much concern. They think it very improper that the Clerk of the House should obey the law—that is all.

THE CITY TREASURY STEAL [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 5 March 1869

There is no telling the amount, as it is said that some of the books hare been lost I The beautiful pair of worthies who edit the Intelligencer , are as close as oysters on the subject. The report of the committee of Councils having the matter iu charge is awaited with great interest.

INFAMOUS CONDUC3 [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 5 March 1869

INFAMOUS CONDUC3 The Ilarrisburg State Guard of Wednesday says: Some miscreants, who are deserving of the severest punishment if detected, have cut the telegraph wires on the lines belonging to the Pennsylvania Railroad, including those of the Pacific and Atlantic Company, leading to this city, and placed the public and companies to serious inconvenience. On the Philadelphia Division' of the Pennsylvania Railroad the wires have been cut in half a dozen places, and on the Middle Division, in two places. At one point on the latter division some thirty-eight poles were hewed down. It is stated that the wires were cut by the Union Company, they alleging that the wires were attached to poles belonging to them. If this is true, it took them a lopg time to find it out. This infamous attempt to compel people to patronize a huge monopoly will not pay.

THADDEUS STEVENS Mr. A. H. Hood, of this city, has written a letter to the Religion* Telegraph in reference to the charges of immorality that have been breught against the character of the late Thaddeus Stevens. After premising that, owing to his bitter hostility to freemasonry and to slavery, Mr. Stevens was fiercely and undeservedly assailed , but that his Innate sense of dignity caused him to let the slsnderi pass unaoUeed, Mr. Hoed says: From lata to 1BMI was a Me* netahbor ef Mr. Stevens, aai knew asm-Ma ef his household aftairs as »nj one not a member of the family could know.

DEMOCRATIC BROTHERHOOD [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 5 March 1869

DEMOCRATIC BROTHERHOOD The Democratic portion of the great American family are as harmonious now, in their political obscurity, as ever they were whilst in the full enjoyment of power and responsibility, t At the beginning of the rebellion, they were squarely and almost a unit for the cause of the South. They did all in their power , during the progress of the war , to prevent the re-inforcement of our armies or to afford supplies. It is true, a large number of patrioUt mon of the Democratic party volunteered on the side of tho country, but the aid which the country received from these was more than neutralized by the large force of Union troops required to put down the Democratic Seymour rebellion in New York , in 1563, the Democratic armed combinations in the West, and the Democratic Knights of the Golden Circle, Buckshots and other armed conspirators in the coal regions of Pennsyl vania. In a word, the Democratic party, as a party, was for the rebellion in 1801; the Democ...

DOCTOR WATCHELL ONCE MORE [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 5 March 1869

DOCTOR WATCHELL ONCE MORE The irrepressible Dr. Gatchell has written another letter, which appeared in the Examiner and also in the Express on Wednesday last, in which he says that Hon. E. BiUingfelt did say to him that more officers were needed to expedite the business of the Legislature, notwithstanding Mr. Billingfelt's denial abeut four weeks ago. He also says he can prove it by Messrs. Hopkins, Peters and Sununy, who "are willing to testify before any court of Justice." How, the idea of Dr. Gatchell raising a question of veracity, before the peopk) of Lancaster county, between himself an * Mr. Billing-Ms, is decidedly rich! We strongly suspect that his tetter was written, not at Ilarrisburg, but in the grand council of Thugs in this city, and ordered to be published in the Doctor's natae, in the vain hope of damaging Mr. B.'e reputation, weH knowing that the Doctor himself lias nothing more to lose by again appearing before toe public as a nonseasical letter writer.
