SEWING MACHINES. T^ON'T READ THIS ! SINiiEirs SEWING MACHINE ' Proved itself without a rival in tlie Into te*t trial in tliis city with the Howtr Machine. We therefore present it to the consideration of nn intelligent public as INCOMI-AIIABLY tlie BEST SEWING MACHINE IN TIIE WtiRLD. It is light running—almost noiseless—and adapted to a wider range of work than any other SEWING MACHINE, While it is, at the same time, very simple indeed. A child can, with all en.-e, learn to use it in a short time. We can assure the public that thev will look to their o ir N I X T E R E s r , If in want of a S E W I N G il A C H I N E , TO SEE, TEST AND TRY THE SINGER, Before deciding to take it or any other Machine. Parties often conic to town in search of a Machine, and then listen to the advice of interested parties, or those who have but a limited knowledge of the Machines in question. BETTER SEE THEM FOR YOURSELVES, FRIENDS, And then you will not be deceived. W. W . I1EA It D SLEE, Agent, No. 3...

^clcttctr [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 17 July 1868

^clcttctr The Force of Imagination. Late one evening, a couple of Irishmen stopped at a country inn and asked for lodgings. The porter escorted them to the door of their room; but just as the travelers entered it, the candle was extinguished bv the wind from the door as it closed behind them. -The porter had already returned to the bar-room, and, after vainly groping on the mantel-piece in search of matches, the travelers resolved to go to bed in tlie dark. In the middle of the night one of them awoke, and, after shaking his comrade to arouse him, said: " Terrence, I'm as wake as a vaccinated kitten for the want of air. Get up and open the window. The room is as close as a patent coffin,and I'll die if you don't give me air I" Terrence aro£e, groped around the room for a few minutes, and then said: " I've found the window, but bad luck to me if I can budge it. . I can't move it aither up or down." " Then knock a couple of panes out wid yer shoe, and we'll pay for them in the...

Larger Beer. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 17 July 1868

Larger Beer. I hev finally cum tew the conclusion that larger beer as a beverage is not intoxicating. I have been told so b y a german who said he had drunk it all night long, just to try the experiment, and was obliged to go home sober in the morning. I have seen this same man drink sixteen glasses, and if he was drunk he was drunk in german and nobody could understand it. It is proper enuff to state that this man kept a larger beer saloon and could have no object in statins what was not strickly true. I believed him tew the full extent of my ability. I never drunk but three glasses of larger beer in my life, and that made my hed ontwist as tno it was hung on the end of a string, but I was told that it was owin to mi bile being out ov place; and I guess that it was so. for I never biled over wuss than I did when I got hum that nite. My wife thot I was goin tew die, and I was afraid I should, for it did seem as tho everything I hed ever eten in my life was cummin to the su...

Mark Twain on the Accordeon. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 17 July 1868

Mark Twain on the Accordeon. Mark was, as many other young men are at some period or their lives, anxious to learn music. He tried first one instrument, then another, till finally he settled down to the accordeon. On that soulstirring article of music he learnt to play that melodious and popular air, " Aula Lang Syne." For about a week he continued, to torture his unwilling hearers, when, being of an ingenious turn of mind, he endeavored to improve upon the original melody by adding some variations of his own. But who has ever seen a real genius -succeed* yet? Just as Mark had -finished his only tune, and wound up with an admirable flourish, the landlady rushed into his room. Said she: "Do you know any other tune but that, Mr. Twain?" I told her, meekly, that I did not. " Well, then," said she, "stick to it just as it is; dont put any v ariations to it; because it is rough enough on the boarders the way it is now." The upshot was that its " roughness" was soon made manifest, f...

Gossip About the Nominations. Seymour! " ("Seymour won't accept. He will pass the nomination over to Chase." " I don't see it." It wasn't seen.

Maine says this has been the first real Grant ratification meeting that has been held since the campaign opened. The two platforms.

THE OXE GREAT ISSUE. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 24 July 1868

THE OXE GREAT ISSUE. FEACE WITH GRANT OR WAK WITH SEYMOUH. Forney's Press is doing yeoman service in the campaign. Some of the very best articles on the issue before the people are published originally in that paper. An article with the. above caption appeared in the Press a few days ago, which is too long for our columns, and we therefore use the assistant Editor—the scissors—and publish the following extracts: The issue between the two great partics in the pending canvass is , in brief—A restored Union with PEACE , or A broken Union with AVAR. General Grant leads the column under the first; Horatio Seymour leads the column under the second alternative. General Grant's PEACE pledge is based on the resolutions of the Republican National Convention, adopted at Chicago, on the 21st of May, and b y the letter of General Grant accepting the Republican nomination, in which lie says, among other things: * * * t "I endorse their resolutions, and, if elected to the office of President...

THE OLD MISTAKE. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 24 July 1868

THE OLD MISTAKE. Wc have a class of Republicans who would have tried the patience of Job. Whenever the current sets against us—as it did last fall—they will do nothing; arguing that success is hopeless and effort fruitless; and, when the current is with us, they will do next to nothing, arguing that effort is needless—that we can't help winning. Hence, in our good times, they are worth exactly their own votes ; while in other times, they do not even vote, but, by their dismal croaking, demoralize those who otherwise would. Just now, this class have taken up the cry that the adversary has ruined his prospects by his preposterous nominations at Tammany Ilall. 11 is impossible, they argue, that Seymour's War record and Blair's Jacobin letter, with the Repudiation proposed in the Tammany Platform, should not utterly swamp the concern. To try to beat the General who took Vicksburg with the Governor who, at the very hour of its surrender, was chuckling, in this city, to a crowd of s...

Imt not before the World had published that J had. ov. Sunday morning, in a political senium, come out for Chase for the Presidency, and against Grant: mid I have seen the story every day since racing through the papers. There is not. a word of truth in it. The sermon was not political, it. made no allusions either to Grant otto Chase. The application of some of its paragraphs, in either direction, was the work of the reporter of the Wta'ld.unt mine. "I have never been a Chase man. I have for years, as a leader in public a Hairs, deemed him! like his greenliaeks, as promising more, on the face than thev are worth in gold.
