Poor Chase: [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 17 July 1868

Poor Chase: What a miserable end has this ambitious renegade reached! Rejected by the traitors of the Copperhead rebel party, and spurned by his former friends, the Republicans! Poor Devil! He did not even receive the support of Hampton, Forrest, Brick Pomeroy and the other great lights of the blackleg New York Convention.

%A t jMjam's {pip* [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 17 July 1868

%A\tt jMjam's {pip* AT the very hour when Seymour was decrying his country, encouraging rebel sympathizers, and filling the minds of his followers with the passions of malignity if not treason, that found expression a few days subsequently in fearful and bloody riots—at that very time the hero Grant was receiving the capitulation of the rebel Pemberton at Vicksbure , and the " boys in blue" under Gen. Meade were driving the army of Gen. Lee before the triump hant banners at Gettysburg-Two white rebels, disguised as negroes , went to a lady's house in Baton Rouge garish, La., not long ago, and after robing her, made her get supper for them. She put a few grains of strychnine in the coffee and killed them! Good. DURING the rebellion the Copperheads said you could not pay thc public debt; and the}- discouraged subscription to thc Government loan, and said that greenbacks would finally be good for nothing ; that it would take, a hatful of them to buy a hat. Buchanan did not own ...

AM HOXEST ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 17 July 1868

AM HOXEST ELECTION. EFFORTS OF COPPERHEADS TO PREVENT IT. Wc want an honest election in this State, and unless we mistake the Republican feeling in every quarter, our friends intend to have it. We attempted to prescribe legislative precautions against illegal and fraudulent voting and to that end enacted recently a fair and impartial scheme of registration, which took away the suffrage from no citizen who is entitled to it, which conferred the privilege upon no ono who does not already enjoy it under pre-existing laws. This measure contemplated an honest election, to be decided by lawful votes and none others. For that precise reason, it was unacceptable to the Copperheads, who find no profit in an honest vote in Pennsylvania. Concocting a flimsy but specious case, they appealed without delay or hesitation to the Supreme Court, soliciting its decision against the constitutionality (!) of the law. They knew that Court to be swayed by a majority of Judges who are Copperhead part...

A Sign. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 17 July 1868

A Sign. The New York Herald, which the Lancaster Intelligencer, York Gazette, &c, recently quoted from as "independent"— which has abused the radicals without stint, and is a shrewd observer of the course of the popular current, almost invariably contriving to be on the strong gu] e—i-iiuic out on Friday for GRANT and COI.KA.V. It says : "The die is cast. The Democratic Convention has decided that our next Paesident shall be Grant." It goes on to say that there is nothing in Seymour's record, and nothing in the platform, that will bring a single recruit to the Democratic party. It further adds-, that the nomination will give the State of New York to the Republicans by 40,-000 majority. * -

Enough for Both. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 17 July 1868

Enough for Both. General Dix, who was in command at New York during the Irish riots in 1863, when colored orphan asylums were burned and colored children were murdered by Gov. Seymour's " friends," notified that functionary that he had men enough to take care of the rioters and himself. Gov. Seymour quailed, and then went to coaxing the mob to cease their vandalism and murder.

The. Copperhead Nominee-;, [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 17 July 1868

The. Copperhead Nominee-;, After ballottlng ' ¦ ' " " three days in th * purlieus or' New York, tlie assembly of Rebels and Copperheads nominated Horatio Seymour, oi New York, for President, aud Frank Blair, of Missouri, for Vice President. Mr. Seymour is the recognized and prominent exponent of the seditious sentiments that animated the Democratic party during the war, and which arrayed it at all times against the Government in its efforts to put down the rebellion. In this respect he does not differ from Fernando Wood or Vallandigham. He was elected as Governor of New York in lSf>2, during the despondency created among the people by MeC'lellaiiVs imbecile conduct of the war, and his administration throughout was noted for an opposition to the national cause, which finally terminated in the disgraceful and murderous draft riots in New York, and was defeated by Fenton in 1804. He represents all "the stale issues," and is one of "the stale men" of the Democratic party, w...

The Campaign in Old Iter k .*•*. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 17 July 1868

The Campaign in Old Iter k .*•*. On Saturday evening last an immense Republican ratification meeting was held at Fifth and Penn Square, city of Reading, which was very ably addressed by Maj. A. C. Reinoehl and Gen. J. W. Fisher of this city, and by Capt Storrie, of Philadelphia. Considering the fact that the meeting was called at very short notice—a mere announcement in the Reading Journal of the same morning—it was a most gratifying success. Republicans of Reading are the substantial men of the city—the intelligent mechanics and business men, the readers of newspapers and.the friends of progress and true civilization. The backbone of the party is the many hundreds of true men employed in the extensive shops of the Philadelphia and Reading Railroad Company, in the furnaces, rolling mills and other leading manufacturing establishments. All that is needed in Reading, to give five hundred majority for Grant and Colfax, is a thorough organization of the party. Let a business mee...

What a Croud! [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 17 July 1868

What a Croud! A Xcw York letter writer says that the notorious rebel Gen. Wiule Hampton, of ¦South Carolina, and the murderer Forrest, were the great pets of thc scallawags and hundlers of the Xcw York Convention. Hampton was cheered every time he made hi.s appearance in the street near Tammany Hall; but says the writer,"it would grieve tlie soul of his fastidious cavalier ancestors to look down on the citizens of the Republic who did tho cheering- A steaming mass of perspiring humanity, reeking with the fumes of bad tobacco and cheap whisky, smoking from obscene mouths set in craniums of fearful and wonderful construction; heads like pony balls in a ten-pin alley, small and round and black and hard. A stern captain of police, who stood like a tower to resist invasion, curtly remarked that it didn't matter much who they cheered, as having been most of them convicted of infamous crimes, they were thus disfranchised. But, bless you ! the police myrmidon spoke unthinkingly. He ...
