DON'T LIKE HIM! [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 12 March 1869
DON'T LIKE HIM! The Copperheads don't like the style of Grant's Inaugural—they don't like his Cabinet, and they don't like Grant. Well, they never did like the way he whipped rebels, and, of course, they don't like the way he skins Copperheads. They will have less cause still to like him before he is done with them.
THE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 12 March 1869
THE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT There is no reason to doubt that before the close of anotlicr week , Pennsylvania will liuve ratified the Constitutional Amendment granting the right of suffrage to every male citizen of the United States, without regard to race or color. A unanimous Republican vote, in our Senate and House of Representatives, will indeed be a glorious record for the great party of civilization and progress, and remove the last shadow of doubt as to the speedy adoption of the Amendment, by the required number of the States of the Union. The unqualified endorsement of this measure by President Grant, in his brief, but very significant and pointed inaugural address, means that this most wise and just Republican measure will be , and must be adopted, with as little delay as possible. Until this is done, there can be no final settlement for the great question at issue during the late war. It is too late for any one to talk about defeating this glorious and final meas...
SHERIDAN [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 12 March 1869
SHERIDAN One of the first acts of President Grant, was the restoration of Gen. Sheridan to the command of the department of Louisiana , from which he was removed by Andrew Johnson, because he would hold a tight reign over the rebels in his command. His return to Louisiana will thrill the whole Sosth, and will do more to give peace to the valley of the Mississippi, and indeed throughout the whole South , than any $vent since Seymour's defeat. People down there know well that the gallant Phil Sheridan is in "dead earnest."
HAVE PATIENCE [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 12 March 1869
HAVE PATIENCE Parties writing to Congressmen ought not to expect replies; their rooms are constantly filled with callers, and the mails are burdened with letters to them. Nearly all the correspondents are asking for information about offices, and until the Cabinet is complete, none of them can be answered. Our representative , Hon. O. J. Dickey, is utterly unable to attend to his large correspondence, and his constituents will understand why they do not receive answers to their letters as promptly as they may desire.

Johnson Issued* farewell address, which, condensed, Is as follows: T» THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED ^B ATES ; The robe of office by consj^ntioiial limitation, this day falls from my shoulders. I have no ambition to gratify or part£ ends to subserve. I only desire to se« tits) constitution recognized and obeyed. I have been most ferociously assailed be* cause I have adhered to my policy, whieaV was obnoxious to politicians. This might have been expected, during. 1 a period of turmoil and difficulty upon tl || closing scents of the rebellion. Had I violated the constitution, I suppose I would have been all right with these politicians. But, I didn't, as I was sworn to defend the constitution. A mysterious Providence made me President, agreeabl y to the provisions of the constitution. Thus I became commander-in-chief of over a million soldiers. Inst...

THE CABINET. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 12 March 1869
THE CABINET. There is but one objection made by even enemies or evil-wishers to the Cabinet of constitutional advisers chosen by the President—that it is a body of comparatively untried men for their present duties. Let us remember , in answer to this , that it teas untried men who fought out the tear, «n(Z that it teas General Grant v:ho selected them. More than this, it was untried men from the people who led in the civil struggles. The trained old statesmen with the prestige and weight of years upon them—the skillful scientific soldiers whom West Point delighted to honor—all' went down, with here and there an exception, as iu the case of our own lamented STEYBNS , and the Lincolns and Stantons and Grants and Sheridans and Shermans arose. We stand on the threshold of a new political dispensation, and begin the administration of a new national policy—the management of the Government of the people by the people—and it is meet, and fit, and right that we start with new leaders....
