TR¥TH STRANGER THA^ FICTION. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 16 April 1869

TR¥TH STRANGER THA^ FICTION. PtettUantou* In the autumn of 1817, while the xxmd% were bright with the variegated hues which follow the light touches of early frost, a mountain traveler was quietlypursuing his way through a dark, broad, lonely forest, in the western part of the State of New York. He had ridden three miles without seeing a human habitation, and had yet two miles to go before he could get sig ht of another. He was descending a hill into a g loomy-looking valley, through which flowed a shallow but swift running stream ; and on reaching the water he permitted his thirsty l^east to stop and drink. At that moment a man came out from a cluster of bushes into the road or horsepath, on the other side of the stream. This man was dressed like a hunter, and carried a rifle on his shoulder. In his general appearance there were nothing that indicated hostility ora wicked design, lie was of medium sfze, compactly built , with intellectual features and a certain alt of genti...

STATJ5HENT IX BEHALF OF MBS. TWITCHELL-HER DEFENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 16 April 1869

STATJ5HENT IX BEHALF OF MBS. TWITCHELL-HER DEFENCE. The Philadelphia Sunday Tranteript of the 11th contains a good deal of gossip in regard to the birth and history of Mr. and Mrs. Twitchell. In contradiction to some former statements, it is denied that there is any ground for the belief that there was ever an improper intimacy between Mr. Twitchell, sen., and Mrs Twitchell." During the time she was his housekeeper, she received regular wages for her services, and was a member of Dr. Lord's church. She married young Twitchell in 18C4. We have already said, the Transcript continues,that Mrs. Twitchell is not yet ready to give to the public a formal statement, but while in prison awaiting trial, in conversation with prison officials, she made a partial explanation, which has never been published. When informed of her husband's conviction and probabilities of her own fate, she re marked " I know nothing of this murder ; that afternoon George and I were out riding, and when we g...

PLATED OUT [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 16 April 1869

PLATED OUT The late elections in Connecticut and Rhode Island prove conclusively that the copperhead bugaboo cry of " Nigger , Nigr/cr!'' has fallen into utter contempt. Still, the Lancaster Intelligencer keeps it up. Poor devils, it is their only stock in trade, and that is worth nothing.

COL. WICKERSHAM The re-nomination and unanimous confirmation by the Senate of our townsman , Col. J. P. Wiekcrsham, as State Superintendent of Common Schools, is a compliment well deserved. During the three years that Mr. W. has held the position , the affairs of the Department have been administered with great ability, the work tlone having been immense, and accomplished with a less comparative expense than that of any other of the State Departments. We congratulate Mr. W., and the friends of tho Common School interests of the commonwealth, in his reappointment.

FIFTEENTH AMENDMENT [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 16 April 1869

FIFTEENTH AMENDMENT "The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States, or by any ytate, on account of race, color or previous condition of servitude." Webster Unabridged Dictionary—the national standard of our language—gives tho following definition: "DEMOCRAT, n. One who adheres to a government by the people, or favors the extension of the rir/htofsvffragctoallclassesofmen." —No man, therefore, can be a ' Bemoeraf,' in the true sense of the term, who is opposed to the Suffrage Amendment. Let Democrats everywhere ponder this fact.

RHODE ISLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 16 April 1869

RHODE ISLAND. The Entire Republican State Ticket elected by abont 4,000 Majority. Khode Island held her election on Wednesday week, and follows Connecticut. In the election a year ago her Republican majority was 4,309. Inl8G7itwas4 ,194. Now, in spite of the general apathy of the year following a Presidential election , and with a vote only about one-half as heavy as last Fall, we have carried the State by 3,39G. The Senate stands: Republicans , 20; Democrats, 7; and tho House, Republicans, 70; Democrats, 12. This secures the passage of the suffrage amendment. Well done, Little Rhodyl And now let us all keep silence while the Democrats reckon up their great reaction against Grant's Administration.

WE STILL LITE! [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 16 April 1869

WE STILL LITE! We are getting on. We iearn fast. We yield to what is inevitable with becoming grace. Negro soldiers gave us a shock from which wo had scarcely recovered when emancipation, wholly and at once, struck us with a death-like chill. This was scarcely recovered from when negro suffrage was proposed and accomplished, not, however, without giving us the sliakes, which had not entirely subsided when negro office-holding became a fixed thing; and we arc now in a state of relapse into which It threw us. We shall recover howler. The Lieutenant Governor of the State of Louisiana, in the person of a negro, named Dunn, has for weeks been received on the floor of both branches of Congress, where he has been treated as though his skin was white. A gentleman of wealth, culture and elegant manners , color is the only peg to hang an objection on; and that is so short and feeble that it is of little account. Should a negro make his appearance with credentials entitling him to a seat...

THE " WAYE." [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 16 April 1869

THE " WAYE." The Boston Post, a "Democratic " paper, says : "It was from a lack of incentive that the Connecticut election, in great part, went as it did, to which should be added the fact that the wave of last fall which carried General Grant into the Presidential chair has not yet wholly subsided." If this be the truth, the Democrats had better bestir themselves in the work of manufacturing fresh "incentive" and crectingbreakwaters to check the force of that "wave," as there is no telling what tremendous damage it . may occasion the Democracy. We have heard a good deal about the irresistible force of the *'ground swell," but hereafter we shall base our apprehensions wholly upon the *' Presidential wave."

"POLITICIANS." [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 16 April 1869

"POLITICIANS." The newspapers of the State, are becoming aroused on the subject of denunciations of politicians, which is becoming so fashionable among the "parlor politicians" of the day—the very exquisite gentlemen who have great reputations, away from home, as "intluential," "high character," and all that, who turn up their aristocratic noses at the men who do the work of the party and contribute the money necessary to carry on the work of advancing the cause of Freedom and Humanity. Thcv Beaver liadical of the Oth inst.,hasa leader on the subject, which we regret our limits prevent us from copying entire, but we take the liberty of adopting a portion of it. After showing how unreasonable and unjust this wholesale proscription of "politicians" is, the Radical says thaj^—"There is a class of politicians for whom we, entertain no respect. They are men without heart and without convictions , who study politics as they study the ebbing and the flowing of the tides (and there ...

HOW THEY SQUIRM! [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 16 April 1869

HOW THEY SQUIRM! The presentation of the allegory of tho "Drummer Boy of Shiloh," in this city, last week, under the auspices of the G. A. It., wonderfully affected the nerves of the corps of editors and reporters of the Lanj caster Intelligencer. The poor fellows squirm and wriggle like skinned eels. The holding up of their especial friends, the perjured rebels of the South, to public scorn and indignation, was too much for them. Their base and unmanly flings at the respectable ladies who assisted in the entertainment excited no surprise, as that is the characteristic of the paper, and any praise from that quarter would be damaging to the character of any female who would be so unfortunate as to receive it. The character of the two beauties who control the columns of that paper is well known in this community, and their lame and impotent attempts to copy Brick Pomeroy excites the pity and commiseration of their readers. — m *¦ ^ THE Grand Army of the Republic numbers 3000 pos...
