Attention .' [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 7 August 1868

Attention .' The trreat importance of immediate and thorough organization cannot he too strongly impressed upon the mind of every Republican voter. A business meeting should be held, at once, in every district throughout the Stale, and the strength of the party ascertained and registered by competent committees.— The wavering and doubtful should be supplied with sound Republican reading matter, which could not fail to remove his doubts and bring him to a front seat j in the party. It is not necessary for | ti business meeting to be very large ; a dozen fir twenty in an election district, when assembledfor laying out work, will ! do all that needs be done to assure thorough organization and a glorious j victory. The enemy is. and for some time has been, thoroughly organized, and this fact accounts for the audacity, confidence and strength of the party under Copperhead leaders. The Republicans, in many lo calities, seem to rely entirely upon the justice of their cause for succ...

I'onil Mtcms [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 7 August 1868

I'onil Mtcms THE "OLD GUARD" AROUSED!—GRAND REPUBLICAN RALLIES.—A large and enthusiastic meeting of the Repub-. licans of the Third "Ward , of this city, was heW on Friday evening last, at the public house of John S. Blanks, corner of South Queen and Middle streets. The meeting was held under the auspices of the Grant and Colfax club of the "Ward , and, considering the short notice given, the large turn-out was really surprising, it being much larger than the Copperhead ratification meeting held in Centre Square, a short time ago. The meeting was called to order by R. W. Shenk, Esq., President of the Club, who made a bnef ^ and telling speech. He was followed by Major A. C. Eeinoehl, J. B. Amwake, Esq., and Marriott Brosius , Esq. The speeches were listened to with great at- tcntion, and the speakers were iVequeiitly warmly applauded. Durinj: the evening the City Cornet Band visited the nicetinc; and performed a number ol' popular atitl patriotic airs. At tlie close ol' Mr...

Cluipter ©» Hogs. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 7 August 1868

Cluipter ©» Hogs. Josh Billings thus discourseth about hogs: Hosp are generally quadruped. The extreme length of their antiquity has never been fully discovered; they existed a long time before the flood, and hev existed some time since. There is a great deal of internal revenue in a hog; there ain't much more waste in them than an oyster. Even their tales can be worked intew whissels. Hogs are good, quiet borders; they alwuz eat what is set before 'em and don't ask any foolish questions. They never hev any diseaze but the measels, and they never hev it but once; once seems to satify 'em. There is a great menny breeds amongst them. Some are a close corporation breed, and agin some are built more apart, like a hemlock slab. * Thev used to hev a breed in New Eng land a few years ago, which they called the striped hog breed; this breed was in high repute with the landlords; almost every tavern keeper had one which he used to show to travelers, and brag on him. Some are full in ...

fttlerttfr. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 7 August 1868

fttlerttfr. General Grant. At a soldier's reunion at Blanchester, Ohio, Judge Sloan said: Nor since the war has he become a dabbler in politics. Possessing a high command in the army, and liable at any time to be called upon , in his military capacity, to enforce the laws of Congress, he has perceived how grossly improper it would be for him to announce to the country his opinions as to the policy or constitutionality of the laws either passed or proposed. He has preserved a discreet silence. Judge Sloan maintained: First—That while Grant was not the most learned man in the country, he was, by far, the most suitable man for President in the present condition of the country, and in view of the troubles threatened in the future, because he is a man in whom all parties have the most unbounded confidence. Second—He is not a genius, but possesses a great amount of practical, useful, trustworthy common sense. Third—He is not an orator, has never made any great speeches, but has do...

Hints to Political Meetings. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 7 August 1868

Hints to Political Meetings. As the season for political meetings approaches, it may be well to reproduce the following excellent advise given by Horace Greely some years ago, which Republicans might do well to heed: 1. Do not fix the day of your meeting and then look up your speakers)—they will already, perhaps, have been engaged elsewhere for that very day—but secure your speakers. Let them fix the day. 2. Two prominent speakers, with the aid at your command, are amply sufficient for any one mass-meeting. Let the people understand these can be relied on, and do not load your bill with an array of great names only to disappoint your audience. 3. Have your meetings, if possible, indoors. Oiie indoor meeting, even if packed, is worth half a dozen outdoor gatherings. The former is comparatively easy, and the the latter difficult for a speaker to control. 4. If you must have outdoor gatherings , then seek the grove or woods , and fail not to erect a stand for your speakers , ...
