Grant's Way of Expressing Great Truths. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 31 July 1868
Grant's Way of Expressing Great Truths. Gen. Grant, thoug h not a politician , lias a parenthical way of stating; irreat truths and sententious facts which is remarkable. As earl y as the second year of the war, in a letter to Mr. Washburne , l i e writes '' I never was an abolitionist—not even what could lie called anti-slavery—but I tried to judge fairly and honestl y, and it became patent to my mind earl y in the rebellion that the North and South could never live in peace with each other except as one nation , and that without slavery." And again: " As anxious as I am to see peace established , I would not therefore be willing to see any settlement until this question is settled." In his correspondence with President Johnson in reference to the removal of General Sheridan from the district of Louisiana, he says: " This is a republic where the will of the people is the law of the land. I beg that their voice may be heard." In his speech to the committee appointed to i nform...
"Car pet-Baggers." [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 31 July 1868
"Car pet-Baggers." We hear agreat deal,from Democratic I journals, of the " carpet-baggers" of the Southern States , a name derisivel y applied to Northern men who have settled i m the latel y seceded S t ates , and who are aiding, b y their industry, energy, enterprise and wealth , in raising up that enervated region to a state of prosperity which it never before enjoyed. These men have gone South, perhaps, with no other baggage than a "carpet-bag ;" but they took with them brains and energy and cap ital , and were welcomed b y the peop le of that section. If some of them j have been sent back North as members of Congress, this fact is only a proof that their good qualities and abilities are j appreciated at their new-found homes. But, while Copperhead journals abuse Republican" carpet-baggers ," they studiously avoid saying anything of their own "bundlers." Northern Democrats have gone South , and the only reason we don't see them in Congress is that they i haven't the requi...
A Missouri rafter on Ji/air. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 31 July 1868
A Missouri rafter on Ji/air. The Democrats scorn to be disgusted with their nomination for President , and satisfied that the game was lost, for nobod y wanted to be Vice-President but Geii. Blair , and the whole convention wa s willing t o " let the tail go with the hide." It ' must be confessed they could not have done a better thing—for the Radicals. If we cannot beat Blair , the revolutionist, with his proposal to dispone State Governments b y armed force fresh in mind, we cannot beat anybody. In' this State his nomination will add live thousand to our majority. Perhaps it may help the ticket in Kentuck y or Maryland , but we doubt it. General Blair was once an honored name in this State. Greater credit is g iven him elsewhere, it is true, for the course of Missouri in the earl y years of the struggle , than he really de s erves, and yet , in k i ndl y recollection of his admitted services , the Radicals of this State have never wished to lessen the respect which others mi...
General Grant's Way. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 31 July 1868
General Grant's Way. A letter of Gov. Yates, of Illinois, j pointedl y contradicting the assertion that the colonelcy of a reg iment of volunteers, i which he . (Yates) conferred on the Galena tanner , was ever sought by the latter, invites attention toh phase of Gen. Grant's character which is quite unlike that of some other officers of our late War. From the beginning to the end of that strugg le , 1'lysses S. Grant rose through every grade ' known to our service. A I poor , obscure, friendless citizen, he volj unteercd at the outset , and was chosen j captain of a company. He was soon I made Adjutant; then Colonel; then I Brigadier ' General; then Major General i then Lieutenant General; finally General-! in-Chief. Yet nobody ever heard of his I asking for a better post. In every case of his promotion, he took the position wherein he was wanted—no one ever heard of his wanting a better one than he already had. " Friend, come up j higher," was the mandate addressed to j this...

•• ALMOST AT THE T(H\" A SOLDIER ON SEYMOUR—SPEECH Oh Clli.V. WOODFORD. At the Academy of Music, iii 'Brookl yn , the other evening. Gen. Woodford, who was evidentl y sull ' ering from a recent sickne s s, was received with enthusiastic cheering, and notwithstandin g his weak bodily condition, spoke with intense energy and lire. We regret that our limits exclude the whole speech. Wc make some extracts: • * * * " I wish I couhljustly close these words without reference to Horatio Seymour. But fidelity alike to history and to my old comrades in the army, living and dead , compel that I should speak of o ne passage in his history.

A Foreign Opinion of Grant. I [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 31 July 1868
A Foreign Opinion of Grant. I The London News says of Grant's Horn- ! ination: \ " There are, some circumstances which render the nomination of General Grant ; singularl y opportune. He is not a I politician , and the nation is tired of poll- ticians. lie is a soldier , with a soldier's I ideas of duty, but with a civilian's re- j spect for leg islative authority and the national will. He has probably no definite j policy of his own ; but it is of a President with a policy that the Republic is sull'ering. lie is accustomed to obey, as well as to rule ; and it is a President who will do its work, obey its behests , whom the nation needs. The very fact that after b y turns exciting the suspicion he has won the confidence of all parties, proves his fitness for the highest post in the Commonwealth. A President should be a practical statesman, not a theorist; a man of deeds rather than of words; the executive of the national will, not the apostle of his own self will. He has no rig...
