Ptelli1»t0U& [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 19 March 1869

Ptelli1»t0U& WHY HE MARRIED. "And don't you know when you will pass through this part of the country again, Mr. Verley?" "No, I don't," said the old bachelor, decidedly. lie was something of a bear to answer so crustily, when Barbara Smith stood in the doorway, with the shadowy lashes drooping over her soft brown eyes, and the roses melting into deep carmine on her rosy cheeks, until her muslin dress was pale in comparison. Such a pretty, bigeyed, loving little Barbara as she was, in all the. blooming freshness of her eighteen summers, and the soft sigh that fluttered up from her lips as the one-horse carriage drove away, and was checked instantly. Barbara had no idea of becoming a victim to unrequited love, though she had rather fancied Mr. Verley during his brief sojourn at her father's house. Mr. Verley drove away through the rustling green draperies of the summer lanes, whistling softly as he drove. "I shall be in very good time for the 12-30 train," he meditated t...

STRONG WORDS [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 19 March 1869

STRONG WORDS The man who never "had an idea in his head" has taught that large class of longwinded stump speakers and verbose journalists who found fault with his reticence the value of silence. There is not a man In all that army of fault-finders who could convey a more severe condemnation of Andrew Johnson's policy than is condensed in these words: "All laws will be faithfully executed, whether they meet my approval or not. Laws are to govern all alike; those opposed to as well as those who favor them. I know of no method to secure the repeal of bad or obnoxious laws so effective as their stringent execution. '' The man who utters sentences like these can reasonably afford to keep pretty silent six days out of sevn.

THUGGERY ON THE HAKE. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 19 March 1869

THUGGERY ON THE HAKE. borne time last summer, one of the leadjiH^hugs of this County—now an office-^^¦fe-b y some means managed to in-^^flttbe Railroad Company to issue a ^^^B of free passes over their road, to ^^Hff in a certain political interest. In-^HK™ "sing them, according to reprejDHwons made by Mr. Thug, by the in-^Mpduals in whose names they were issued, at least eight of them passed into the hands of a copperhead Councilman of this city, and by him sold to butchers and drovers, for sums amounting to one hundred dollars each and upwards. This was decidedly sharp practice on the Railroad Company. How many more than these eight passes were sold, we ore not prepared to state. We are ready, if called upon, to state names of the parties referred to, and may do so hereafter, even ' without being so requested. That will depend on their future honesty and good behavior. For the present, we have only to say, by way of comment, that any man who would sell a free Railroad pass, ...

WATCH THEM [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 19 March 1869

WATCH THEM It is said at Harrisburg that the supernumary officers of the House—the twentyseven—expect to get pay fbfc their doing nothing by the aid of the, Democratic members. Nothing more natural. That party generally puts its arms full length into any public treasury they can get hold of. Witness the recent peculations in the matter of market-stall and water rents in this city. Then go back twelve or fifteen years, when that party held high carnival over the public works of this State, when the public money was stolen by thousands and millions of dollars. But this will not excuse Republicans who vote with Democrats to consummate the outrage of paying twenty-seven officers, whom a month ago the House voted there was no earthly use for. The intention is to force the'pay through in the appropriation bill,. This the Senate can prevent, and wo wili see whether they will lie driven from their position.

"THE BRIDGE CONTRACTS. " [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 19 March 1869

"THE BRIDGE CONTRACTS. " Our readers will find, in another column, a long communication from Mr. E. Mc-Mellan, on the subject of "the Bridge Contracts," with which the public is already familiar. We cheerfully publish this production, long as it is, because wc are always willing and ready to give those publicly aooswed of wrong oiling n ntll and full hearing. Mr. McMellan, in the first place assumes that the articles which recently appeared in FATHER ABRAHAM, and also in the Repress, were aimed at himself, and were vile and slanderous in their character. He is entirely mistaken—certainly so far as FATHER ABRAHAM is concerned. We never thought of attacking Mr. McMellan, nor did wc even refer to him except only for the purpose of showing up the outrageous manner in which the Board of Commissioners, or a majority of them, have been squandering or using the people's money. Wc did charge, and repeat now, that for the last year or two, Mr. McMellan has been the elect of the Commis...

GETTINtt FEROCIOUS [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 19 March 1869

GETTINtt FEROCIOUS The Copperheads ore in a bad way. They don't like the Constitutional amendment. Giving the patient, long suffering and much abused colored citixens the right to vote, and the enjoyment of " L&, Liberty and the pursuit of Happineteyl^B- what they call an outrage. They are vofjy particular about the right of the thousands of thieves and pickpockets and outcas|| of the Fvc Points, Mackarelville and Bejfe ford streot to vote, because these roll m the democratic majorities. But the idea* a black man voting, is an outrage. Audi Why? Simply because they, or at leasfti maioritv of them, will most probublyjrtflV the Republican ticket—for the party which set them free and raised them to citizenship and usefulness. Aside from the great > fundamental principle involved—the principle of "Equality before the Law," wc favor the amendment because it will add fully twenty thousand to the average Republican majority in Pennsylvania; because it will rescue Mar...

GRANT'S INAUGURAL [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 19 March 1869

GRANT'S INAUGURAL The New York Tribune analyzes the foregoing inaugural by reducing it to thirteen plain propositions: I. I shall advise Congress—but not war upon it. • II. My business is to execute the laws. A bod law will always remedy itself when the people begin to suffer from it. ILL We have had war,—now we must have peace. We have our common country, and any sentiment of sectional hatred or revenge is unpatriotic. IV. Our debt is the honorable consequence of the war. It is the price we pay for Union. Not to pay is a crime only second to treason. V. We must pay our debts without equivocation. When we borrowed in our hour of distress) the dollars we received were gold to us. We must pay gold unless the contract expressly stipulates to the contrary. VI. American credit should be the best in the world. Let us stop talking about Remidiation and collect the revenues, and we can make it the best in the world. VII. I am in favor of building railroads to the Pacific. But we mus...

It seems that the ordering of the carriages was unauthorised by law, and Mr. Colder could not get bis pay from the City Treasury. He holds the members to their individual responsibility, and has brought suit against thenv Now, if the aforesaid " pasters and folders" would take Mr. Colder's plan, and "come down" on the members who employed them without authority of law, theyA «jight get what is due them.
