THE CKAWFOBD COUNTY SYSTEM. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 16 April 1869

THE CKAWFOBD COUNTY SYSTEM. As the time approaches for making tho annual nominations in this county, considerable interest is l>eing manifested on the subject. The following article from the Columbia S /II /, of Wednesday last , is worthy of consideration. Allegations of fraud in the conduct of the nominating elections heretofore, have been very freely made, and in some instances with a great show of truth. Wc hope nothing of the kind will be allowed to occur next fall, as all the county offices arc to be iilled ^ ani it is oT the first importance that every* thing should be fairly done. Candidates will find it to their interest to frown upon and expose every effort of too anxious friends to resort to trick and fraud in their behalf. It will be found that in this, as in every thing c'se, " IfoneMy is the best policy:" "It will not be h-ng until the people will be called upon, under the Crawford county system, to nominate candidates for county offices, &c. It is ...

INIQUITOUS [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 16 April 1869

INIQUITOUS We call the attention of the reader to the letters from Harrisburg, in this paper. It will be seen that a bill of the most objectionable character lias passed the House, and great efforts arc made to get it through the Senate. Its object is to tax the people for the benefit of a "ring" of millionaires who are sucking out the lifeblood of the tax payers. We have hopes that the Governor will interpose his veto, if the bill shonld unfortunately got through the Legislature. He certainly will have a glorious opportunity to show his interest in the welfare of the people, and receive from them a most emphatic endorsement*. Will not somebody furnish the yens and nays in both Houses on tiiis infamous bill? We don't want to wait for the .Record. — ^~» m

EX-GOV. CURTLY The many friends of this distinguished gentleman will learn with pleasure that he has been nominated to tho U. S. Senate, and confirmed, as Minister to Russia. It was hoped by his friends that he would have had a place in the cabinet of President Grant, but as that could not lie , it is a subject of congratulation that so distinguished a mark of appreciation of his great services to the country lias been conferred upon him. Our artist has furnished us ' with a very fine likeness of Gov. Curtin, which will bo found on the fourth page of this paper.

TIMES OLD AND NEW [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 16 April 1869

TIMES OLD AND NEW Senator Wilson, iu the United States Senate, in replying to some remarks by Senator Sprague, made the following reference to times old and new in New England : - . **—"I know something of the stern trials of men who seek of their fellow-men leave to toil for wages, but I know, and am grateful to God for the cheering fact, that tho laboring men of the country have made immense progress during the past third of a century. I speak not now of the mighty change in the condition of the toiling millions of the South. I speak of the improvement in the condition of the great body of the mechanics and working men of the North, of New England, of Massachusetts, and of Rhode Island , too. I happened to be boru in New Hampshire, in a farming community. I have toiled in the field in the cold of winter and in the heat of summer, with as good men as ever handled hoe or swung axe or scythe, who received fifty cents per day for their labor, and received their pay not in money,...

OIK HARBISBUKU LETTEB. HABBISBVBG, April 7, 1360. Dear Father Abraham: 11 there ever was a time in the history of the Legislature of Pennsylvania, when we stand in need of good aifd true men—men who have the interest and welfare of the people at heart—men who can tacrine* their own personal interests for the lublie good—that time is now. The crisis M come. The question to be determined iere within the next forty-eight hours is rbetber the people through their immediate tepessentatives shall govern this great old commonwealth, ox whether their Representatives saall be used as pliable instruments in jhshsads of designing men, to farther their MMSMA ends,lad destroy the vital its »f Hnpdv politic. I mnst confess, though*reluctantly, that I am almost despairing of oar grand commonwealth, when I look over the Legislative Halls, and instead of witnessing grave Senators and Representatives, solemnly deliberating over the ways and means of best serving their constituency and the pub...

WASHINGTON NEWS AND GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 16 April 1869

WASHINGTON NEWS AND GOSSIP. [i•pi.i.i'.n pn.'.M VAiii'.r* POCRIIW .] Both Houses of Congress remained in session Friday until nearly daybreak Saturday morning, and rc-assembled at 10 o'clock. It was generally expected that the session Saturday would be continued through the dies non of that day until noon Sunday, but the presiding officers of both Houses construed the adjournment resolution to mean that the first session of the Forty-first Congress should adjourn at 12 M. yesterday. Accordingly, when that hou* arrived, they adjourned their respective Houses sine die. ' The closing scenes were almost void of general interest , but were marked with unusual decorum and freedom from the boisterousness which usually occurs on such occasions. All the bills of importance pending on Friday morning were passed or finally disposed of, and consequently the business of the session closed up in better shape than that of any preceding Congress since the war. There is just enough body left...

A MUflSTER El A HEW BOLE. How He Cleaned His Cistern, and What Came of ft. [From the Cincinnati Chroaiele.] A lew flays since a well-known minister who owns a house in the West End which is now vacant, paid the premises a visit, for the purpose of examining their condition. After taking a survey of the house and finding everything in good condition, the reverend gentleman took a look into the cistern, the bottom of which, to his sorrow, he found to be covered with sediment, old tools, tin pans, stones, bricks, etc. After viewing the filthy mess for some time, the frugal-minded old gentleman came to the conclusion that, in view of the hard times and high price of labor, the wisest course he could pursue was to clean it himself, especially as his sermon was written for the week, and he, in consequence, had plenty of leisure. Having once resolved, the old gentleman lost no time in executing. Proceeding to the house he divested himself of every article of clothing save his drawers...
