•fttiscclliutcous (Jumpaiyti Sony of J.80S. WE'LL MOVE ON THE ENEMY'S WORKS AGAIN. Our colors are out, and in letters of gold, The names of our heroes we blazon; Ulysses the soldier and Schuyler the bold, Both haters of traitors and treason. Long and well has their courage and wisdom been tried, They have always Vieen true to the people, And our tanner will tanevery Copperhead hide, And hang it on liberty's steeple. Hurrah! boys, hurrah! from Texas to Maine, Three cheers and a tiger for chorus; We'll move on the enemy's works again, With the hero of Vicksburg before us. We're bound for the White House, we've rented the place, Old Andy, the traitor, must travel; And whoever may try to run in the race, We'll beat him with Colfax's gavel. We're tired of wakes and of firemen's rows, And the ramble of whiskey-ring leeches, And we won't have a fellow in Uncle Sam's house, Who swings round the circle with speeches. Hurrah! boys, hurrah 1 &c. Then hang out your banners and sin...

PEACE OR WAR [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 14 August 1868

PEACE OR WAR COPPERHEADS SKINNED!—THEIR POSITION EXPLAINED BY SENATOR NYE. On the 10th of July, 1868, Senator Nye, of Nevada, made a speech in the U.S. Senate, in which he literally skinned the Copperheads and their rebel allies. He paid his respects particularly to that noted rebel, Davis of Kentucky. We have room only for a few extracts: I am not willing to let go unchallenged the things that have come from the honorable Senator from Kentucky. While he has been speaking I have thought whether there should not be a change in the form of the Lord's Prayer in Kentucky: "Give us this day our daily bread, if sistent with the Constitution; but be sure, O, Lord, give us white bread made for white men." That form, I think, would be adapted to the creed which the honorable Senator has just proposed. I recollect very distinctly bearing the Senator denounce the Democracy in more unmeasured terms than be is capable of denouncing the Republican party. They had beaten his pet, Mr. Clay, a...

Dlsyustetl With J£is Partu. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 14 August 1868

Dlsyustetl With J£is Partu. We commend the following communication, addressed by P. II. Sibley, to the Democratic State Central Committee of California , to the attention of honest Copperheads : Gentlemen of the Democratic State Central Committee:—I would be doing violence to my own feelings, and guilty of unfair conduct to you, did I continue longer to share your councils and possess myself of your plans in the coming political campaign. In sentiment and sympathy I am no longer with you. My judgment neither approves the platform of principles put forth by the New York City Convention, nor. does my sense of duty to the country justify me in aiding to advance Horatio"Seymour to the oflice of President of the United States. In remembering that I am a Democrat, I cannot forget that I owe a higher allegiance to the American Union. I should be glad to remain in the Democratic party, could I believe that in doing so I am not sacrificing those principles of patriotism that are hi...

DEATH OF HON. THADDEl'S STEVE.VS [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 14 August 1868

DEATH OF HON. THADDEl'S STEVE.VS To the Republican Voters of Lancaster County. The sudden death of Hon. Thaddeus I Stevens, our beloved and distinguished I Representative in Congress, which sad event took place at Washington on Tues-1 day, the 11th inst.,at!2 o'clock midnight, devolves upon the Republican party the painful duty of nominating his successor in the XLIst Congress, and also a person to fill his unexpired term of the present r session. This sad event, occurring on the eve of the Republican Primary Meetings, renders it impracticable, even if it would be considered proper, to make arrangements for a new nomination at this time. The undersigaed, therefore , after consultation with members of the County Committee and other friends, would suggest that, as a fitting tribute of respect to the memory of our most able and distinguished Champion of Freedom and Justice, the' unanimous vote of the party be cast for the name of THADDEUS STEVENS at the ensuing primary meetings...

The Primary Elections. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 14 August 1868

The Primary Elections. The primary elections throughout the county of Lancaster, to-morrow, (Satu'rday)are of vital importauce,aud the honest and patriotic Republican people owe it to themselves to secure the nomination of their best and truest men. We have nothing to say against any individual whose name appears on the list of candidates ; each one may be competent and worthy for all we know. But, we do say, on behalf of the many who arc not represented in conclaves of Thugs and Rings, that the nominations should be fairly made, and the popular will respected. Let every interest be represented in the primary election boards. Let evey one who would assure honesty and fairness be present and see that the votes are honestly counted in each district, and the returns correctly made. We have reason to fear that the secret tactics of the oathbound organization of office seekers and political jobbers which is known to exist in our midst, contemplate fraud in voting and counting, if n...

M«%* J^ntfytm's &if»s. \Y HEN Blair, in 1800, during the campaign in Indiana , branded the Copperheads as a "vile, miserable party," and abused Douglas so fiercely, Dan. Voorhees called Blair the '•prince of blackguards." Blair in return branded Voorhecs as a "hell-hound.'' Now the ''hellhound" supports the "prince of blackguards." A nice couple, truly. SUPPORTERS of Grant—Sherman,Sheridan, Thomas, Meade, Farragut, and eight out of ten other loyal officers and men who fought under the Stars and Stripes during the Rebellion. Supporters of Seymour—Beauregard, Forrest, Hampton, Semmes, Toombs and nine-tenths of the rebels who fought under the Stars and Bars. This fact needs no comment. THE Clearfield Raftsmen's Journal says that ex-Governor Bigler " is not dangerously ill," as reported, but " that he was quite sick on his way from the Democratic Convention, the nominations have ing turned his stomach." Semmes, the pirate and murderer, says: " I nave been a Democrat all my...

mm ©0ros|)0itbttttt. MOUNT JOY , August 8,1868. EDITORS OF FATHER ABRAHAM: I think you are fairly entitled to the thanks of every honest * Republican for the prompt and very efficient manner in which you have exposed the corrupt transactions of several politicians in whom we have heretofore confided. Mr. Armstrong's mileage draft at Harrisbur"' , which seems to be clearly proved against him, settles his case. But , according to the reports here, he is very strongl y in favor of a certain candidate for the Legislature—Mr. Summy. Wh y ? Has Mr. Armstrong an axe to grind, and is Mr. Summy to turn the grind stone? Or, docs he want him to cover up his moccasin tracks at Ilarrisburg ? We would like to know, for we want no more Armstrong s to represent us in the Legislature. B. MESSRS. RAUCH AND COCHRAN:— The Republicans of the Old Guard want to know how to vote on Saturday in order to avoid the candidates secretly nominated in the sand stone county building at the head of East K...

STEYESS IS DEAD! j [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 14 August 1868

STEYESS IS DEAD! j Millions of freedom-loving people I throughout the land are mourning the death of the Great Commoner and everreliable champion of Liberty and Hu- j inanity—THADDEUS STEVENS! Like ! Moses of old, he has spent forty years of i his eventful and glorious life in leading I a persecuted race through the dreary ] wilderness of oppression and slavery, and very near the end of the journey, and after many trials and extraordinary endurance, and self sacrifice, he was permitted to see, in the evening of his life, in the little distance beyond, the future land ol real freedom and equal rights for all men. The messenger of death called him hence at twelve o'clock on Tuesday night, August 11th, and he departed, as he lived, the noble, fearless and most devoted friend of all mankind. An enlightened and patriotic people have the consolation to believe and feel, on this day of sadness and mourning, that his soul now enjoys the rich reward of a blissful immortality near the T...

Tin- ix.:fsioiie State. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 14 August 1868

Tin- ix.:fsioiie State. We believe wc have the very best means of knowing how the great Republican cause is moving along in Pennsylvania. We daily receive letters from all sections of the State, written by the most active, influential and intelligent men of the party, and all testify, in the most unqualified manner, as to the deep-seated determination of the people to finish up tho great work of national reconstruction according to the Republican Congressional programme. We might present at least one hundred extracts from letters recently received, and each one assuring us that in his particular locality the partyis in a better condition than ever before ; that not a single Republican can be found who is not openly and heartily for Grant, Colfax, Hartranft and Campbell, whilst many honest Democrats do not hesitate to declare their determination to vote the same way. The Copperhead leaders depend entirely upon the game of brag, with which they hope to secure the " floating vote...
