Misctlhntons. The Copperhead. Of all the factious men we've seen, Existing now or long since dead, Xo one was ever known so mean As him we call a Copperhead; A draft evading Copperhead; A rebel aiding Copperhead; A growling, slandering, Scowling, pandering, Vicious States' rights Copperhead. From him the decencies of life And all its courtesies, have fled; He lives in fretful, factious strife; A testy, touchy Copperhead ; A negro tearing Copperhead ; A rebel cheering Copperhead ; An unlearned, unliked, Oft spurned, oft whipped, Ilouglifaced, wringing Copperhead. When ".Save the Union," was the cry, And thousands for the Union bled, Tlie Nation'.* right he did deny-To save itself;—this Copperhead ; A Son of Liberty Copperhead ; A (rtilden Circle Copperhead ; A scheming, lying, Screaming, riving.

Military Titles. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 10 July 1868

Military Titles. w—^—^- [For FATHER ABRAHAM.] Titles are conferred upon persons for some service meriting distinction and honor, and are intended to mark the position in Church or State of those upon whom they are bestowed. In Church the title of D. D. is conferred upon those of the clergy who have proved their superiority in piety, learning and theology by long years of service, study and experience, while in the profession of law the possessor of L. L. 1). must be one of the highest ability and success at the forum, and deepest research into the intricacies and most perfect familiarity with the subtleties of the law. Titles are supposed to be marks of well-earned honor. But of the numerous names which men in all classes of society and grades of distinctinction possess , none are more honorable or worthier of profound respect than those of the soldier. From corporal to general, the military title is a synonyme of high honor. It marks the man who has perilled his life for hi...

General Grant. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 10 July 1868

General Grant. EXTRACT FROM HON. JI. C. DEMINCA LIFE OF TIIE GREAT CHIEKTLIX. Judged by his more words, Grant is nothing; judged by his actions, he can make no pretensions to brilliant genius, to profundity of acquirement, to erudition in any department in human thought. Nature endowed him with a strength of will, an equable temper, a sound, practical, well-balanced understanding; and nurture has contributed to dcvelopo aud foster these natural endowments. From his West Point education he derived substantial and useful knowledge, and the edge and discipline which scientific and mathematical study imparted to an intellect whose native temper was for hard service rather than glittering display. Hiss experience in the Mexican war, in frontier life, and in rough civil employment, invigorated his practical resources, familiarized him with the various phases of American character, and trained him iu the homely task of American life. His hard labor in the civil war strengthened and n...

Mark Twain on rem ale Suffrage. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 10 July 1868

Mark Twain on rem ale Suffrage. '* Mark Twain " writes to his *' Cousin I Jennie" on tlie subject of" Female Suf- J frage," as follows : _ I There is one insuperable obstacle in tbe, way of female suffrage, Jennie ; I approachthe subject with fear and tremblinir, but it must out. A woman would j never vote, because she would have to tell her age at thc polls. And even if j she did dare to vote once or twice when i she was just of age, you know what dire results would flow " from '* putting this and that together " in after times. For instance, in an ungarded moment, Miss A. says she voted for Mr. Smith. Her auditor, who knows that it has beeu seven years since Smith ran for anything, easily ciphers out that she is at least seven years over age, instead of the young pullet she j has been making herself out to be. No, Jennie, this new fashion of registering i the name, age, residence and occupation ' of every voter is a fatal bar to female J suffrage. j Women will never lie perm...

m m » General Mel'herson's Opinion of Grant. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 10 July 1868

m m » General Mel'herson's Opinion of Grant. The gallant General McPherson, in a letter written but a short time before his death on the field of battle, expressed the following opinion of General Grant: General U. S. Grant I regard as one of the most remarkable men of our country. Without aspiring to be a genius, or possessing those characteristics which impress one forcibly at first sight, his sterling good sense, calm judgment, and persistency of purpose more than compensate for those dashing, brilliant qualities which are apt to captivate at a first glance. To know and appreciate General Grant fully, one ought to be a member of his military family. Though possessing a remarkable reticence as far as military operations are concerned, he is frank and affable, converses well, and has a peculiarly retentive memory. When not oppressed with the cares of his position, he is very fond of talking, telling anecdotes, &c. His purity of character is unimpeachable, and his patr...

"G. C." [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 10 July 1868

"G. C." There has been a great speculation among the country people in regard to the cabalistic letters which have appeared upon the wings of the locusts at their different advents. Happily we are now prepared to settle this question, for the present, at least. It is this, the G and C, so universally seen on the wings of locusts hereabout, are the initials of Grant and Colfax. This is a most startling and wholesome revelation, when we take into consideration the marvelous revelations made by these singular little insects in the past. In 1783 they appeared with a W on their wings, which indicated the election of the illustrious Washington to the Presidency; in 1800 they wore an M, which predicted the election of James Madison; and in 1817, again an M, which indicated James Monroe; in 1834 it was pretty badly mixed, owing to "Matty Van '' ana others, but in 1851 they came out strong with a V which pointed to Pierce , and now in 1808, the Gand the U settle the question.

Courting Sunday Night. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 10 July 1868

Courting Sunday Night. We do love an effecting " pome;" one that brings tears to eyes " all unused to the melting mood;" that takes one back again to his "bread and bntter" days, when his own Angyline Was the gayest gal in the world. After the author of the following was smiled on by his affinity, he started to go away; the big dog was chained, but broke loose, and tore the gallyunt troubador and lover all to pieces. Moral—Never write ponies or go courting any gal on Sunday night, if her pa owns a big dog: I deerly luv the singing bird, And little buzzin' 15 ; But deerer far than all the world Is thy sweet vowe to me. 0! very deep is daddy's well, Anddeepcr is the see—But deeper in my busiim is The luv I bare for thee.

CUhervatiou. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 10 July 1868

CUhervatiou. An old man of very acute physiognomy, answering to the name of Jacob Wilmot, was brought before the court. His clothes looked as though they might have been bought second-handed in " his prime, for they had suffered more from the rubs of the world than the proprietor himself. "What business?" " None; I am a traveler." " A vagabond, perhaps!" " You are not far from ri g ht. Travelers aud vagabonds are about the same thing. The difference is that the latter travel without money, the former without brains." " Where have you traveled?" " All over the continent." '* For what purpose ?" '• Observation." ," What have you observed ?" " A little to commend, much to censure and very much to laugh at." "Humph! What do you commend?" " A handsome woman who will stay at home; an eloquent preacher who will preach short sermons ; a good writer who will not write too much; and a fool who has sense enough to hold his tongue."

How the Good Templars initiate Candidate!,. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 10 July 1868

How the Good Templars initiate Candidate!,. The following must have been written by a chap who got drunk on lager beer without knowing it would intoxicate. It refers to a lodge of Good Templars. It is a graphic description of an *• initiating ceremony " as the writer understands it: In the first place the victim for initiation is blindfolded, hands and feet, and thrown into a cauldron of boiling hot rain water and boiled for five minutes. This is done for the purpose of clearing his system of " old drunks." He is then taken out of the cauldron and by means of a force pump gorged with cistern water, after which a sealing plaster is put over his mouth, and he is rolled in a barrel four or live times across the room. The choir at the same time sings the Cold Water Song. He is now taken out of the barrel and hung up by the heels till the water ruus out through his ears. He is then cut down and a beautiful young lady hands him a glass of cistern water. A cold water bath is then fur...

A Iterktt Comity Incident on the Fourth. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 10 July 1868

A Iterktt Comity Incident on the Fourth. One of the Sunday Schools of the city of Headinir celebrated the Fourth, as usual, in a beautiful grove about a mile below town, on the south side of the Schuylkill river. Within a hundred yards of the ground stands a two story brick house, and a well of excellent water in the yard. The premises belong to and are occupied by an old woman—a true representative of the generation of old school democrats who are about passing away. By means of padlocks and chains, she had fastened the gates to the yard and obstinately refused to allow a single drop of water to be taken away for the use of the children. The committee offered to pay her liberally for any wear or damage to her property, but all such offers, and all appeals were answered: "Ich du's net;" "ken droppa," " bleib mer yusht fum hoff," &c. (*' I won't;" *' not a drop;" "just keep out of the yard!") Whilst one of the committee men was making his most eloquent plea for wjiter...
