The Eiitjrtt/ Cradle. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 24 July 1868

The Eiitjrtt/ Cradle. There is a whole volume of poetry in the following little sketch, which we linil in the last number of Miss Barber' * Weekly: We met John on the stairs. lie was carrying an old cradle to be stowed itway among what he termed " plunder " in the lumber room. One rocker was gone, and the wicker work of the sides broken : it was tin old willow affair, but we could not refrain from casting a sad look into its empty depths. " Gone !" we said dreamily, "all gone !" What golden heads were once pillowed here! heads on which the curls grew moist in slumber, and the cheeks and lips flushed to the hue of rose leaves. When sleep broke, the silken fringed lids opened heavily from the slumberous eyes ; smiles flitted like sunbeams over the face; the white list was thrust into the mouth, and while mamma lifted the muslin and peeped to see if baby was sleeping, cooing and crowing were heard ! The little feet began to kick, out of pure delight, and kicked on until both of...

Salvation to the nation came When Grant—unknown in story Without the prestige of a name, Led forth the hosts to glory ; Unfurl your banners to the breeze, Y'e men who love the nation, Inscribe thereon such names as these, Grant, Colfax, and .Salvation. Democracy is eagle-eyed, Discovers new wonders, Grant's victories they have descried To be so many blunders; They're sore at heart, and jmlo, and wan, No motto for their banner, They hoarsely shouted "black and tan," Hut do not like the Tanner. He tanned the rehs too many times To meet, their approbation, Successes then, are now the crimes Demanding immolation. Powerful for all, still must they rant Like some besotted bummer, Forgetful that our leader, Grant, "Fights on this line all summer." Then rally to bis standard boys, Inaugurate the shouting, Novembers, ides will swell the noise Of victory and routing; lie saved our country from the shame Of her disintegration, First on your...

•f atber jMmtlmm 's fclrips. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 24 July 1868

•f atber jMmtlmm 's fclrips. THE nigger is no more to be damned by the Democracy—that is, when he is on the Democratic side. Who can doubt this after it is known that the New York Democratic Empire Club held a meeting on Monday evening, and was addressed by "Mr. Quickly, a colored gentleman from Georgia, and an attendant from that State on the Tammany Hall National Convention." THE Northern "Democrat" cannot conceal his horror of the "carpet-bagger" who invades the South with such Yankee notions of school books and manufactories, nor his love for the rebel brother who returns to the North with his pockets full of secession resolutions ready to fire off at any Abolitionist who dares to speak of the " onpleasantness." MR. HENDRICKS said in the Senate the other day that he had intended to show the Democratic platform was so plain, distinct, and direct that nobody could misunderstand its meaning; "But, sir," he continued,u it would likely take more time than I am able to occupy....

Democratic Principles. Below we give a few choice extracts from Democratic speecbes'and editorials in support of Seymour and Blair: "What the Confederacy fuut,'lit lor during the war will lie won hy the election of Seymour and JJlair."—E.e-tiovernor Vance of Senile Carolina. " I give my hearty support to .Seymour and Ulair. because the latter is pledged in favor of the cause of the South by military power, whilst Gov. Seymour is too well known as an uncompromising champion of our rights to require endorsement from any quarter."—Speech of Ex-Governor Henry A. Wise, ef Virginia. "The spirit of Wilkes Booth still lives, thank God! Therefore, take courage! Seymour, Ulair, and the revival of the great cause is the motto of every true man!"—Pine liluff (Ark.) Vindicator.

m ^ m Seymour. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 24 July 1868

m ^ m Seymour. While our soldiers were chasing the defeated rebels from the field of Gettysburg, on the 4th of July, 1863, Horatio Seymour was making a speech in 2few York, and threatening the loyal people of the North with mobs and revolutions. This is an extract from his address: "Do you not create revolution when you say that your persons may be rightfully seized, your property confiscated, your homes entered? Are you not exposing yourselves, your own interests, to as great a peril as that with which you threaten us ? Remember this : that the bloody, and treasonable, and revolutionary doctrine of public necessity can be proclaimed by a mob as well as by a government." [Applause.] " Well, the mob heard him, and a few days afterwards his "friends" were burning orphan asylums, murdering inoffensive persons, and filling New York with the horrors of riot, arson, and assassination. . *~ - ¦ ¦

. ^ A Perfect Profile. The published intention of Brick Pomeroy to issue a daily paper in New York brings out the Tribune in a note of welcome. It says: " Mr. Pomeroy—coining among us as the representative of the village grocery and tavern corner of the Democracy of the West, of the true, pure Democracy who drink their whiskey straight, do not believe in free schools, think Wilkes Booth a gentleman and a martyr, and : have conscientious scruples against clean shirts —will be heartily welcomed." That is a very perfect profile of the men who support the La Crosse Democrat I in Lancaster and Reading.

Up and at Them! [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 24 July 1868

Up and at Them! Republicans, Loyal men everywhere ! you who desire peace and prosperity, now that the sword has settled all questions at issue in the war; the Democratic party, so called , have placed themselves just where we wanted them; now then, "UP AND AT THEM ." Drive them, as a party organization , not only to the verge, but over and beyond ; and they'll give the country no more trouble with their secession rebel dogmas hereafter.

THADD E US S TE E* S. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 24 July 1868

THADD E US S TE E* S. A number of Republicans of this city and county appear to be somewhat exercised about the remarks made by Mr. Stevens in the House of Representatives last Friday, during the consideration of the National finances. Upon this subject we fully agree with the following extract from an article in the Lancaster Examiner of Wednesday: •¦It is well known that Jlr. Steven-on financial questions, as eonnerted with the government, holds views antagonistic to those held by the gp-at majority of hisoonsti'uents. They an- his individual views however, and whether right or wrong, the Republican party cannot justly be held accountable for them. Any attempt, therefore, to hold the party responsible is neither right nor proper, Mr. Stevens is too earnest and honest a man to withhold or even inoilify liis views upon anvof the great national questions of the day. Further, he has rendered too important a service to the country, especially during the dark days of the rebelli...

IS IT POLITICAL? [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 24 July 1868

IS IT POLITICAL? After all, Old Berks is a decidedly interesting locality during a political campaign. In regard to free schools, the old hard-shell loco-foco bald-head and copper-lined Democracy appears disposed to "accept the situation," provided school " don't keep" over four months in a year , and the wages of o'er shoolmeashder is kept below eighteen dollars and three quarters per month. The death of General Jackson is now generally considered a fixed fact among the Berks county Democrats, except in Albawney, Moxidawney and Headlebarrick. The old United States Bank question is settled in favor of greenbacks, and all Democrats who have considered the subject agree that we must have cither a tariff for revenue with incidental protection, or a tariff for protection with incidental revenue. Among the new questions now pending, and considered as of vital importance to the Berks county Democracy are : 1st. Will Saltpeter explode . 2d. Is the Whiskey tax constitutional ? 3d. Doe...

The "Stranf/e Reports." [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 24 July 1868

The "Stranf/e Reports." Our correspondent " Sadsbury," gives some facts and figures, which will interest the people of Lancaster couuty. That a man who was not elected, but absolutely rejected , as an ollicer of the House of Representatives, and who never performed an hour's service, should draw pay from the State Treasury, is simply outrageous. The question is, through whose instrumentality was this outrage consummated, and «)7io shared the spoils? The question of "mileage," too, is one of interest, and is not confined to mem hers of the Legislature. Some other officers of the county are implicated in transactions of this kind, and a little ventilation will not be disadvantageous to the people. —Since the above was in type , Mr. Ilyus called upon us for the purpose of explaining the matter, and putting the responsibility where he thinks it rightfully belongs. He stated that lie was promised a position in the House by Mr. Armstrong, and after the election of the Speaker, by ...

Seymour's Popularity. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 24 July 1868

Seymour's Popularity. In answer to Seymour's alleged popularity, we need only present a few facts and figures to show that every time he has been before the people of New York for office, he ran behind his ticket. In 1850. he received 3,057 vote less for Governor than were cast for Church, who ran on the same ticket for Lieutenant Governor. In 1802, he received 2,020 votes less than Church, who was again on the same ticket. He also received 007 votes less than Skinner for Canal Commissioner, on the same ticket.— He is unquestionably the most unpopular man that could have been nominated. Ulair only excepted. A GENTLEMAN of ability and experience, being out of business, would accept a situation as editor of a live Republican paper during the present campaign. For particulars, address FATHER ARRAHAM. [Communicated.] MR. EDITOR : In regard to certain "strange reports" in circulation concerning salaries drawn bv some individuals from this count}' at Ilarrisburg last winter, who w...

The Copperhead Democracy. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 24 July 1868

The Copperhead Democracy. No political organization ever existed in this or any other country which# has been guilty of as many infamous crimes and misdemeanors as the so-called Democratic party. Within the last ten years this party has openly and boldly committed itself in favor of slavery, and for the purpose of nationalizing this system of inhumanity and barbarism, it has inaugurated the late rebellion for the overthrow of the Republic. Its treason cost the nation five hundred thousand lives, and five thousand millions in money. It was the wickedness of this same party which entailed a debt upon the people amounting to twenty-five hundred millions. It has filled the land with mourning widows and orphans. It has covered the Southern States with battle-fields and grave-yards. It instigated the organization of secret oath-bound associations in support of the traitors who endeavored to destroy the Republic. It rejoiced over our defeats and mourned over our victories. It oppos...

focal Steins. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 24 July 1868

focal Steins. THE MOST AMUSING scene ever witnessed in the city of Reading, was a "flag raising" at Sixth and Court street, last Saturday evening, on the building occupied by D. Ermentrout , Esq. The building is about twenty-two feet high ; the flag-staff nine feet four inches long ; the flag five and a half by three feet, and the size of the meeting, and the character of the speeches in about the same proportion. The music consisted of two drums, one fife and a gong. Thexe is much uneasiness amomg the Democratic beer saloon keepers of Reading, on account of the apathy of the party. They are afraid that they will not De able to pay running expenses during the campaign, as the election of Grant and Colfax,by an overwhelming majority, is generally admitted even by the Berks county Democracy.
