A LEGEND OF 1776. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 19 June 1868

A LEGEND OF 1776. Night had set in deep, and in a small log cabin, situated a few miles from Trenton, N. J., sat five men, four of whom were seated around an old oaken table, in the centre of the room, engaged in playing cards, while they frequently moistened their throats with large draughts from an earthen jug that stood on the table. They were heavily-bearded, coarselooking men, and from their dress, which somewhat resembled the British uniform, were evidently Tories. The other was a stout-built young man, clad in the continental uniform. He had sat in one corner of the room with his face buried in his hands. " Tom," said one of the Tories, raising from the table and seating himself near the young prisoner, for such he evidently was, " Tom, you and I were school-boys together, ana I like you yet. Now why can't you give up your wild notions and join us? xou are our prisoner, and if you don't we shall haud you over to headquarters to-morrow, while if you join us your fortune ...

Foppimj Corn. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 19 June 1868

Foppimj Corn. And there they sat a popping corn, John Stiles and (Susan Cotter; John Stiles was stout as any ox, And Susan fat as butter. And three they sat and shelled the corn, And raked and stirred the fire, And talked of different Khids' of ears, And hitched their chairs up nigher. Then Susan she the popper shook, Then John he shock the popper, Till both their faces grew as red As sauce-pans made of copper. And thou they shelled, aud popped, and ate, All kinds a fun a poking, And he haw-hawed at her remarks, And she laughed at his joking. And still they popped, aud still they ate, (Johu's mouth was like a hopper,) And stirred the fire, and sprinkled salt, Aud shook and shook the popper. The clock struck nine, the clock struck ten, And still the corn kept popping; It struck eleven and then struck twelve, And still no signs of stopping. Aud John he ate, and Sue she thought—The corn did pop and patter, Till John cried out, " The corn's a-fire! Why Susan, what's the matter ?" ...

Look at the Figure*. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 19 June 1868

Look at the Figure*. Looking over the wide field of action, there is scarcely a State iu which the signs are not hopeful. Last year's reverses , like the reverses of 1802, must now be profitably studied as so many warnings against inaction and dissension. Let us look at the figures. In 1862, Slenker (Democrat) beat Cochran (Republican) 3,124, for Auditor General of Pennsylvania, in a total vote of 434,750; iu the very next year Cm-tin (Republican) beat Woodward (D§iUocrat4,, 15,325, for Governor, in a total vote of 523,007. The same year Seymour (Democrat) beat Wadswortli (Republican), for Governor of New York, 10,752, in a total vote of 602,540; and hi the very next year Depew (Republican) was elected Secretary of State in the same State "by a majority of 2,945, in a total vote of 5t>9,28'.>. In the same year (1862) the Democrats carried Ohio by 5/>77, while in the very next year, Brough (Republican) was elected Governor by a majority of 101,099. In 1862 ...

ms LETTER OF ACCEPTANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 19 June 1868

ms LETTER OF ACCEPTANCE. To Gen. JOSEPH R. HAWLEY, President NalUiii'ti T'nion Republican Convention: In formally accepting the nomination of the National Union Republican Convention ,of the 21st of May inst., it seems proper that some statement of views beyond the mere acceptance of the nomination should be expressed. The proceedings of the Convention were marked with wisdom, moderation, and patriotism, aud I believe express the feelings of the great mass of those who sustained the country through its recent trials. / indorse the resolutions. If elected to the office of President of the United States, it will be my endeavor to administer all the lu'vs in good faith, with economy, and ivi'h the view of givingpeari',tj'iiet, and protection everywhere. In times like the present it is impossible, or at least eminently improper, to lay dawn a policy to be adhered to, right or wrong, through an administration of four years.

Editor* : You are doubtless aware that there is no source of fraud in our elections more prolific than that of naturalization papers. There were some splendid specimens exhibited to the Committee on the contested Senatorial election in the 21st district last winter. To show bow it was done, I will mention one instance, as a sample of many others which might be given, and some of which will be given between now and the election. A certain Esq. Reynolds, who lived at that time in Scrantou. having become well known as an active manipulator of such matters, was applied to by a young Welshman, who bad been less than a year in the country, for one of the " Cofftc-Colortd"1 papers for the purpose of voting for Clymer. lie replied "you are the kind of men we want; we have plenty of the papers, and our price is Sl.90."
