.i I'rotul Jfistor//. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 7 August 1868

.i I'rotul Jfistor//. The history of the Republican party is indeed a proud record. Inheriting a bankrupt treasury, a dishonored credit , and a gigantic rebellion from the traitorous Administration which preceded their advent to power ml.SGl,the Republicans heroically and successfully grappled with and conquered all these obstacles to the life and progress of tlie nation. The}-replenished the Treasury; they redeemed our credit; they subdued the mightiest rebellion that ever confronted civil power since governments were instituted among men : " they struck the shackles froni4,000,-i. i()() of human beings, and gave them every civil rights under the Constitution and laws And while accomplishing these herculean tasks, the Republican party administered the Government so wisely, that prosperity has been all' the time abroad in the land; great business enterprises have been undertaken and successfull y prosecuted ; factories have been built; the forest subdued ; farms brought unde...

Clcn. Gratif I)e/iiihiff JUs Position [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 7 August 1868

Clcn. Gratif I)e/iiihiff JUs Position Gen. Grant was one day busy with his military plans, in the inner part of his tent. His maps, rules and compasses, , were all in use. His mind ranged over I the vast extent of country under his control. Mountains were scaled, rivers ¦ forded, swamps bridged, deserts traversed, forests threaded, storms and sunshine were overcome, and he was master of the situation. He was just laying out his plans of a projected battle, intensely occupied with the marshalling of his troops, in their best position for victory, when his ear caught the inquiry, put to his orderly, in a strong, foreign accent: | " Is de generawl in 5"' Then came the reply, in a firm, decided tone, which Gen. Grant understood in—stantly—"• Yes, sir, the commanding general is in ; but he is very busy, sir." '" Could 1 zee him a ' vew momenta?" He ordered me to suv, sir, that he would be very much occupied for some time."' '• On de advance, eh?" interrupted the intruder. '".Den he...

Copperhead Misrepresentation. • [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 7 August 1868

Copperhead Misrepresentation. • (JcrtamJJemocraticjournalshave lately labored hard to induce the belief that our National expenses are enormous , that the public debt is being increased instead of diminished, that taxation is more onerous, and that the Republican party, having a two-thirds majority in both Houses , is responsible therefor. In answer to certain inquiries of the Hon. fm, B. Allison, of Iowa, Special Commissioner Wells has written a letter ,containing the following specification : I. That the National receipts of revenue from all sources , for the fiscal year ending June 30,1868, were substantially S406,800,000, and the aggregate expenses 8371,550,225 , of which " 8141,035,551 13 was on account of interest on the Public Debt (nearly 816,000,000 of this being due mainl y to payments on .account of accumulated interest on the Compound Interest Notes , and which will not appear in future interest disbursements), thus leaving an estimated surplus of receipts over exp...

Sealain a. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 7 August 1868

Sealain a. From the time of firing the first shot at Fort Sumter , until the present day, the Copperheads have heen scolding. It seems to be their only remedy for all their numerous afflictions. They scolded the Republicans when Buchanan first divided the Republic, and whilst the work of restoration was going on they scolded harder. When the army needed men, they scolded. When the treasury was empty they scolded, and when the tax collector came they scolded harder than ever. "When a hattle was lost they scolded, and when one was won they scolded. They scolded when Greenbacks were issued, and scolded when they stopped the issue. They scolded when the rebel States were kept out, and now fhey are scolding themselves out of breath because they have heen brought back into the Union. They are common scolds and the whole set of them a common nuisance !

3?itti)cr ^iu.ikm 's 4 flips. THE Democratic party lias informed the people of the iiehel States that they are at liberty again to embark in Rebellion, to nullify the acts of Congress, anil thus renew the struggle. The Democratic party has invited the people of the Rebel States to renew the war by assuring them that the action of-Congress is unconstitutional, and that they are not hound to yield auv obedience to these Reconstruction acts of Congress. If the people of lite South do not again embark m the rebellion, it is because they disregard the express wish of the Democratic parly of the North, and if they do embark in the rebellion, the Democratic party of the North is responsible for the war. and the blood will be upon their shoulders.

The Eir.it Gun. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 7 August 1868

The Eir.it Gun. \ The election in New Albany, Indiana, i on Tuesday, resulted in a Republican gain of seven hundred ! Where's Blair': i — — «. THE most disagreeable duty we feel called upon to discharge, is to showup and expose the corruptions and shortcomings of those in whom the great Re- j publican party have confided, by elevating them to offices of honor and trust. Peculators have formed,themselves into regular organizations against the interests of the tax-payers, and as honest and independent public journalists, we cannot do less than expose them, if in our power to do so. This duty shall be faithfully discharged on our part, to the best of our ability. We hold that plenty of good and competent men can be found to fill our offices, local and general, who will accept them for the fair and ample compensation prescribed by law, and the official who will take more than is allowed by the letter and spirit of the law, is a bail man and cannot be trusted. Let every Republica...

Something for the People. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 7 August 1868

Something for the People. [Communicated.] DEAR FATHER ABRAHAM: From the great liberality of our County Commissioners in squandering the money of the tax payers, it is painfully evident there is an absolute necessity for the election of an honest, independent and competent Commissioner , as well as an honest, independent County Auditor, who cannot and will not be manipulated by the ringmasters or the office-brokers. Of late we are informed , that these ivorthy Commissioners have appropriated one hundred and fifty dollars out of the County Treasury to two fire companies in Columbia, through the influence of Mr. Geo. Brubaker, candidate for the office of District Attorney, who for the purpose of getting the votes of the firemen there, promised them a donation from himself of twenty-five dollars, but which, it is suspected, he did not make, when the Commissioners were so kind as to make them a larger donation. Now, by what authority are such donations made ? The county has no pr...

To insure success, we must be organized and disciplined ; and as the election of our ticket in the State depends upon its success in the Districts, and in the Districts on the counties, and in the counties on the townships, and in tlie townships on the towns and communities, and in the towns and communities on the active, earnest, loyal, working Republicans in them, therefore it is the duty of every Union man to do all he can toward carrying the State for the hero of Appomalox Court House by a majority of many thousands.

Unprofitable! [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 7 August 1868

Unprofitable! Gen. W. B. Franklin proved himself during the war to be an utter failure. He is now engaged in the very appropriate business (for him) of writing a series of letters against General Grant's military character. This is another illustration of the ''noble eagle being hawked at by a mousing owl." The less Franklin says about anybody's military career, the better. There are enough people who think that if he had his deserts, he would be keeping his friend Fitz John Porter's company. It was only Mr. Lincoln's kindness of heart that saved him.

Remember ! [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 7 August 1868

Remember ! That a United States Senator, to fill the seat now occupied by Senator Buckalew, is to be elected by the next State Legislature. This fact should not be everlooked by the voters of Lancaster county, in making their selection for legislators at the coming primary elections. — m » » —¦ GENERAL HAHBY WHITE, the Senator from the XXth Senatorial district of this State, was unanimously renominated by the Republican conference on Thursday last. He is one of the ablest men in the western counties, and will be recollected as the gallant soldier who was held , through Democratic appeals to the rebels, a long time iu prison at Libb y, when his vote was necessary to give the Republicans the majority in the State Senate.

Remember Xew York ! [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 7 August 1868

Remember Xew York ! How man}- Boys in Blue remember, when at the front, in July 1803, how Horatio Seymour's ''friends" in the city of New York made a desperate effort to inaugurate civil war in the North, and entirely cut off all re-inforcements and supplies for those engaged fighting our great battles in the South? Can the soldiers of the Republic forget how they then wished for an opportunity to settle accounts with the cowardly home traitors, when thousands of their comrades were withdrawn from the front to attend to the rebellion so seriously threatened in the rear ? Does not every Boy in Blue well remember his own feelings of indignation when he read , in the newspapers which were sent them by dear ones a>t home, the speech of Horatio Seymour to Ins "friends," the rebel murderers of draft officers and burners of Orphan Asylums in the city of New York, and how he encouraged antl instigated these horrible scenes of fire and blood ?

Andy Armstrong. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 7 August 1868

Andy Armstrong. \ This gentleman published a card in the Columbia Spy of the i'.t'lh tilt., in which he attempts to explain away his participation in the Illyus "grab," and his own j "big thing" on mileage at llarrisburg last winter. He carefully avoids the I real charge made against him as the j manager and setter up of the Illyus job. j We therefore consider the statement of Air. Illyus fully sustained—that he in- duced the latter to come lo llarrisburg and draw the "pay" in question. That part of his card which refers to his mileage is as follows: '•The distance from mv place to llarrisburg is :it) miles, and bv me so relumed at both sessions, and. if any meddlesome person chooses to atlix tin'lieiire ii. for si'ltisli purposes, ami you gulp it, 1 can't help it—thit's all."

A "Smalt" Easiness. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 7 August 1868

A "Smalt" Easiness. The " small" daily in South Queen street talks very flippantly about "small" politicians. Well, the smallest business we can think of is tomisrepresent a man, and then, in the smallest possible way, attempt to wriggle out of it. The "small" daily referred to, said that Mr. Stevens, in a letter which it published, asserted that his opponents in an argument were "fools and swindlers."' Mr. Stevens did say : •¦I have only declared against fools -anti swindlers, who have fabricated the most atrocious falsehoods as to my position upon the currency question." Now, we submit that when we characterized the assertion of the "small" daily as wilful and deliberate misrepresentation, we used only the proper terms, and the article in the '•small" daily only shows that the word "small" applies to the "small" daily in more than one sense. The fact is, that all of week before last'our "small" neighbor was in a muddle, and any one who will think it worth while to read its a...
