FORWARD [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 2 April 1869

FORWARD Pennsylvania, the keystone of the t edeial arch, having ratified through her Legislature the Constitutional Amendment, we have eleven States which have already enrolled themselves in favor of the •measure: Nevada, Kansas, Missouri, West Virginia, Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan, .Maine, South Carolina, Arkansas, Pennsylvania. One has rejected it, Delaware, with the eyes of the world upon her; and another, Georgia, luis tried to do so, but as her entire political status is questionable and involved, her present action one way or another docs not matter much. So far the field looks well—says tlie Pre:*.

CUPID AND SENS A TEA I [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 2 April 1869

CUPID AND SENS A TEA I We commend the following to the attention of the wise men of the Lancaster School Board, who have drawn down upon them the ridicule of sensible people by their recent action in separating the male and female high school, on the ground of the immoral tendency of the co-education of the sexes. Senna tea will fix it! "A dear old lady at Brighton, (England) who has a finishing school for young ladies, finds her great trouble is the propensity of her pupils to fall in love. "My only plan," she says, "when I see that ttie tender passion has been developed, is ¦ to crush it in the bud." "What do yon do?" "You will smile when I tell you, for my receipt is the antithesis of romance. It is a dose of senna tea." Senna tea?" "Yes, senna tea. Whenever I perceive—AS I quickly do—that one of my young ladies has fallen (as she fancies) in love , I at once take her in hand. I never hint at anything connected with the tender passion, but I treat her as an invalid, Who is ...

COPPERHEAD DODGING [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 2 April 1869

COPPERHEAD DODGING Ths Intelligencer of last Friday evening copies nearly the whole of our article on the Pasting aud Folding swindle, which appeared in FATHER AIHIAIIAM on the same day, and adds: " FATHER ABRAHAM avows its belief that tbe Senate will sanction this raid upon the State Treasury. /It asserts that several Democrats will vote'for it, with the design ol " making capital against the Republican party during the coming Gubernatorial campaign." We do not. believe that. The Democratic Senators have shown themselves to be honest and konerable men. They do not need to do this thing. Tlie Radical members of the Legislature have done enough to damn their party to lasting infamy. They will be held responsible for the rascality involved in this pasting and folding swindle, just as much as if it should pass the Senate. We repeat, we do not believe a single Democratic Senator will vote to pay this outrageous claim." But, Mr. Intell igencer, "Democrats" of thejlouse did vote for...

THE WORLD MOTES [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 2 April 1869

THE WORLD MOTES Congress has done two excellent thintrs : it has passed the Public Credit bill, aud a bill placing the colored people of the district on a perfect equality of civil and political rights with the whites. The President promptly signed both bills. One can hardly get used to such action on the part of the President. Andrew Johnson always sent such bills back to Congress, or pocketed them. At last we have an executive who will promptly execute the will of the people on such questions.

POOR STRANii' [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 2 April 1869

POOR STRANii' Tioga county rejoices in having a Mr. Strang in the House at Harrisburg. We have had occasion to notice him before, in connexion with the pasting ami folding swindle, of which he w?s the chief champion. Well, the newspapers annoy this Strang very much, and he has taken occasion to ''ventilate" several times. His last performance in that line was on Monday night last, after enjoying a" good dinner, we suppose, in which he , took--thc Philadelphia Inquirer iu hand. lie was very dyspeptic, and called hard names. He threatens to have A Bill Passed To Prevent Any Man From Publishing A Paper Who Can't Get Twelve Resectable Citizens To Swear To His Good Character. Wliat a monstrous threat is this! We suppose The In/[utrer will atop at once. Poor Strang! The offending paper takes the matter very coolly and laughs at Strang—it does! It says some hard things about the Legislature. For instance, it asks: "Why is it that no property owner feels the ground safe under his fe...

OUR HARRISBURG LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 2 April 1869

OUR HARRISBURG LETTER. HARKISHURO , Tuesday, Mar. :;o . Dear Father Abraham : It is pretty well understood—tuongh no joint action has yet been j had on the subject—that the Legislature will | adjourn either next week or the week following, and as a consequence legislation is being pushed forward with great zeal. Of course, a I large number of local bills will not be reached, but the most important public inensnres will ! be linally acted upon. THE ACPKOPKIATION 11II.I, Was called up on Thursday last, and an unsuccessful attempt made by the Chairman of , the Finance Committee, Mr. Council, to dispense with going into Committee of the Whole. , It required a two-thirds vote, and on a call of the yeas and nays, the requisite nnmber could j not be secured, aud a disposition was thus j manifested at the outset to consider carefully and minutely, each section of the bill. The i Senate Committee has very properly stricken out the appropriation to the "additional twenty-sev^n," but its...
