Information Wanted. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 10 July 1868

Information Wanted. Some very strange reports are current about the pay and mileage of members and officers of the last Legislature from Lancaster county. We can scarcely believe that there is any truth in them, but still it is a matter of importance to the people, as well as to the representatives and officers themselves, that thc truth should be known. Who will enlighten us?

The Black Flag. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 10 July 1868

The Black Flag. The platform of the Ku-Klux Wilkes Booth Copperhead "Democracy," is REPUDIATION . This is its practical feature —all else is clap-trap and demagogery. REPUDIATION —bare, bold and unblushing—is the black flag under which the party of treason will sail. We accept the issue, and "will fight it out on that line."

|«tfcer fMnn 's fto* [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 10 July 1868

|«tfcer fMnn 's fto* FELONY is the distinctive badge of the Copperheads—a party of crime and fraud. Heretofore its most efficient argument has been ASSASSINATION—now it is REPUDIATION of honest debts. A precious set of villains! THE dough-faced Wilkes Booth Ku-Kluxers at New York dared not own the soldiery of the Republic in the presence of the leaders of tlie rebel Confederacy. How Hampton and the bloody murderer Forrest (who thc Intelligencer styles a hero!) must have despised the trembling cowards who thus denied their flag ana its bearers! They must have dreamed themselves back on their old plantations before the war, when they saw these "Democrats" (heaven save the mark!)—as they never saw the negro soldiers, at Fort Pillow or anywhere else—cowed! JUDGE WOODWARD , the man who decided as Judge of the Supreme Court, that soldiers in the field had no ri ght to vote , was the man who presented the committee of soldiers to the Copperhead National Convention. What a friend of t...

Besser Sag Nix Derfoo ! [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 10 July 1868

Besser Sag Nix Derfoo ! When some wealthy men in New York, shortly after President Johnson's accession to office, tendered him a valuable carriage, the President declined the present, because it would be an impropriety in him to accept private gifts. Gen. Grant has no such nice sense of propriety.—Heading Gazette. How about that gold watch which the colored people of Tennessee presented to A. J., when he promised to be their Moses? And how about that lot of Berks county whiskey which was shipped to him not long ago by the whiskey ring of Reading—about the time when the senior editor of the Gazette—Congressman Getz—was engaged "fixing up" that little matter between the whiskey ring aforsaid and the Revenue Department at Washington ?

Treasury Robbers. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 10 July 1868

Treasury Robbers. How many more millions have heen stolen from the people "by collusion" among Radical officials, will, perhaps, never be known. Enough is already known to prove that the only way to save the Treasury from wholesale robbery, and the nation from financial ruin, is to remove the Radical thieves from power, ancl put good Democrats in their places.—Reading Eagle. Will this Berks county organ of Dcmcratic honesty and purity inform us whether its Congressman , Maj. J. Lawrence Getz, did not aid and assist, before the Revenue Department at Washington, in hushing up a number of whiskey and beer frauds perpetrated by his Democratic constituents of Reading, and whether many thousands of dollars were not " stolen from the people" by Democratic and Conservative officials and politicians in and for Old Berks ? Come, scntlemcn, toe the mark !

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

The Great General. The Copperheads are constantly parading the assertion that General Grant recklessly sacrificed his troops. The fact is, before he took coinmand , the army of the Potomac lost in killed, wounded and missing, principally under Mc-Clellan, on the Peninsula, and through Fitz John Porter's treachery at second Bull Run, 145,118 men, whilst the losses under Grant, whose fighting crushed the rebellion, amounted to 106.501 men.

Infamous ! [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 10 July 1868

Infamous ! The Intelligencer copies with great gusto a sketch of celebrities attending the rebel copperhead convention at New York. Read the following: "One of the most noticeable men in the convention is Gen. Napoleon Bonaparte Forrest—the hero of Fort Pillow—tall, well-formed, nervous, and evidently not disinclined to attract attention." "The hero of Fort Pillow" indeed! The cold blooded murderer of Union soldiers after they had surrendered. And this bloody scoundrel is complimented by men —no, not men, THINGS—who in the same paper have the unparalleled impudence to claim the support of the brave "Boys in Blue" for candidates nominated by such cut-throats as Forrest, Hampton, Mosby and the like. Can impudence further go ?

Give ns a Registry Latv.* [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 10 July 1868

Give ns a Registry Latv.* The terrible howl raised by the Copperheads throughout the State against thc Registry law—at the time of its passage —and their great joy over the decision of the Supreme Court, declaring said enactment unconstitutional, (on account of a mere clerical error) should satisfy all in authority that our only safeguard against the most stupendous Copperhead frauds at the coming election is the prompt passage of such a law, so framed as to leave no doubt about its constitutionality. We are glad to learn that a number of Republican members of the Legislature are petitioning our patriotic Governor to call an extra session for this purpose.

Impeach ment. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 10 July 1868

Impeach ment. On Tuesday last, Hon. Thaddeus Stevens presented to the House live additional articles of impeachment, arraigning President Johnson for overt illegal acts committed during his 'administration.— The articles present a compend of the numerous and flagrant acts of thc Executive in violation of his powers and duties, and in contravention of the functions with which the Constitution has clothed him. Mr. Stevens supported the articles in an able speech, in which he reviewed his history of the impeachment remedy in England and this country. He then passes in review the enormous crimes the President has been guilty of against the country. The concluding portion ofhis speech is an enunciation of his faith in the perpetuity of that government where public virtue is esteemed. The speech as a whole is a masterly effort. Although it is not the purpose of Mr. Stevens to have his resolution acted upon immediately, as its temporary postponement indicates, nevertheless the subs...

Organize ! Organize ! ! [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 10 July 1868

Organize ! Organize ! ! It is time that our Republican friends should understand that, if they expect to make their majority of the votes of this State effective at the polls in October and November, it will be only accomplished by perfecting their organization and inaugurating an active and thorough canvass. We can assure them that , at no time have the opposition laid their plans of operation broader or deeper, or with a more determined resolution to achieve success in some way and at any cost-The habitual, traditional tactics of that party are gross outrages against the laws, and flagrant invasions ofthe purity ofthe suffrage. They enter upon the canvass this year with a determination to carry it, and to this end they not only mean to poll every vote lawfully within their reach) but will repeat the villainous frauds of the last autumn , on a still more extended scale. They will colonize in one district , repeat in another , and everywhere that they can will swamp the boxe...

The Copperhead Platform. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 10 July 1868

The Copperhead Platform. The platform, as presented to the New York Convention on Tuesday, and swallowed whole by that body, ought to satisfy every person who, during the war , was. disloyal , and who either fought against tho national flag, or rejoiced whenever it was defeated. Briefly stated, the platform is this : Immediate restoration of all the States —that is, that thc States which were in rebellion shall be allowed to resume all political privileges, without indemnity for the past or security for the future. Amnesty to all offenders—that Jefferson Davis, John II. Surratt, John C. Breckinridge and John C. Braine ought not to be persecuted for their little peccadilloes. Also, that the said individuals, and all offenders against the laws, ought to bc admitted at once to full political rights, so that tho same men who rebelled because they could not rule the United States may be insured the privilege of control once more. Repudiation of the public debt by thc substitution o...

The National Copperhead Convention. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 10 July 1868

The National Copperhead Convention. The National Convention, representing the Rebels, Traitors, Blacklegs, Repudiators, Whiskey Rings, Infidels, Prize Fighters, Shoulder Hitters, Bounty Jumpers, Assassins, Forgers of naturalization papers, and Copperheads, under the general name of " Democracy," assembled in that cesspool of nations—New York city—on Saturday last. The day was spent in organizing temporarily, appointing committees, &c. Sunday was phit through principally in aud around the groggeries, dens of prostitution and similar democratic institutions.

Remember ! [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 10 July 1868

Remember ! Frauds, forgeries, false naturalization papers, and, if needs be, MURDER, will be resorted to by the Copperheads to succeed next fall. The blood of the poor Irishman, Casey, in Clearfield county, because he testified against the villainies of the Copperheads in the 14th Senatorial District last fall, is evidence of the means they will resort to. Be prepared for them , Republicans! ¦¦» ¦ » •> IF there had beeu a Democratic Congress at Washington during the last three years, six hundred millions of dollars would have been saved to the tax payers of this country.—Bedford Gazette. At least one hundred millions of dollars were stolen from the Government during the last year by thc Democratic whiskey ring, and there is not now a single Democratic Congressman who is not an agent and interested counsel for the ring at Washington. OUR circulation is now fully four thousand five hundred, being an increase during the last week of four hundred. As this is fourth of Jul...
