COPPERHEADISM! [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 5 March 1869

COPPERHEADISM! The report of the Committee of Congress which investigated the New York election frauds, has just been given to the public. The corruption unearthed is actually astounding. The facts as stated in tho New York Tribune of the 23d ult., will be found below ; •' It is proved before this Committee, on the testimony of many aud unimpeacha ble witnesses, that 1. Thousands of aliens fraudulently procured certificates of naturalization during a few weeks immediately preceding our election. 2. Many hundreds of certificates were in the names of fictitious persons, that those holding them might have facilities for voting many times. 3. Many hundreds holding these certificates did thus vote many times—ranging from twice up to forty times or more. 4. The frauds committed in counting the ballots were nearly equal to those in casting them. 5. There was a combination of officers , judicial and otherwise , to protect those committing these frauds , and no.one has been punished fo...

WASHINGTON NEWS AND GOSSIP [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 5 March 1869

WASHINGTON NEWS AND GOSSIP [CULLED FBOM VABIOU9 SOURCES.] It is generally understood that Hon. C. Delano, a member of the present Congress from Ohio, has been named by General Grant for the position of Commissioner of Internal Revenue. Mr. Delano has a high character for ability and integrity, and with such a man at tho head of the Revenue Department tho dap of the rule of the whisky ring will soon pass away. So mote it be. Hon. J. G. Blaine, of Maine, has been nominated to succeed Vice President Colfax to the speakership of the House of Representatives, his principal competitor, Mr. Dawes, of Massachusetts, having retired from the canvass. Hon. E. Mc-Pherson has been nominated for Clerk; Col. Ordway for Sergeant-at-Arms; and O. X. Buxten for Doorkeeper—all officers of the last House. Several parties, entertaining hopes of receiving appointments to office here and elsewhere, under the incoming administration, have already commenced vigorous campaigning in support of those anxi...

THE NEW ERA! [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 5 March 1869

THE NEW ERA! GRANT AND COLFAX INAUGURATED. We are able to give our readers the following particulars of the Inauguration ceremonies received up to the time of going to press yesterday afternoon : Notwithstanding the bad weather , the scene presented was most magnificent to behold. The long line of military and other organizations extended as far as the eye could reach. The White Ilouse, Treasury building, and every available point of elevation, on house-tops and in trees, were loaded down with human beings. Flags and national emblems of all devices were to be seen on all sides , the buildings being completely festooned. On the conclusion of the ceremonies in the Senate Chamber, Grant and Colfax were conducted lo the platform on eastern side of Capitol, where the oath of office was administered amid the profound silence of the sea of people. Mr. Johnson did not appear in the procession, but was present in the Vice President's room in the Senate Chamber. So great was the crowd i...

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

INFAMOUS. Brainc, the rebel pirate, who went on board the steamer Chesapeake with a number of others, bound from Xew York to Portland in December, 1W1S, rose and killed the Captain, and took possession of the vessel, and who was subsequently captured, and lias been in prison ever since, has been pardoned by President Johnson. One whisky thief, one Post Office robber, and two more counterfeiters, so far as heard from, have also been pardoned by him within the last two days. Unfortunately for assassins, thieves, counterfeiters and rogues of every grade, but most fortunately for the honest portion of the people, the reign of Johnson ended yesterday.

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

CBnflNALg. To-day four degraded negro pirates will be hanged at Princess Anne, Somerset county, Maryland, for the capture of an oyster schooner on the Chesapeake and the murder of its captain. Within the week Andrew Johnson has pardoned an intelligent white pirate, under charge of murder on two different occasions. Braine and his associates, December 7, 18113 , took forcible possession of the steamer Chesapeake, on which they had shipped as passengers, killing the captain and wounding several others, when they rose upon the unsuspecting crew. ' Tho same operation was repeated on the steamer Roanoke , bound from Havana to New York, resulting again in murder. John C. Breckinridge, the double-dyed rebel and traitor, was feasted and toasted in New York last week, by his "Democratic" admirers and sympathisers. These are the men whom Johnson and the Democracy delight to honor-, but in the eye of God and honest men are they not guiltier than the ignorant and degraded negroes who will...

WHVT WE MAY EXPECT OF UENERAI GRANT. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 5 March 1869

WHVT WE MAY EXPECT OF UENERAI GRANT. BV CHABLE3 O. CAMS. First, General Grant will be President in fact as well as in name. As we have seen, he never was a man to hesitate about exercising any amount of power that might be confided to him. In Jackson's place, he might not have said, "I take the responsibility;'* but he would have taken it, nevertheless, snd said nothing about it. Even one of his associates in the Galena leather store understood this peculiarity well enough to give Governor Ycates of Illinois, who had confessed his inability to get at the Bnicial capacities of " this Captain Grant," the following good advice: "The way to deal with him is to ask him no questions, but simply order him to duty. He will obey promptly." The people have now summoned this same prompt officer to be President of the United States, and that he will be. If any individuals high i» position or prone to intrigue indulge the -hope of managing or improperly influencing Sir. Johnson's successor...
