Representative Men. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 28 August 1868

Representative Men. Whatever may he thought or said of Hon. John Morrissey, the notorious pugilist and professional gambler of New York, as a Congressman, we contend that he is just as much a representative man as Thaddeus Stevens was when in the enjoyment of perfect health and unimpaired intellect. Whilst the latter represented an intelligent and enlightened people, the former carried with him into the House of Congress the views, ideas and principles of quite a different kind of constituency. To represent gamblers, thieves, pick-pockets, shoulderhitters, Sabbath-breakers, negro baby killers and burners of orphans' asylums, John Morrissey is just the right kind of a man, and the fact that he is the chosen representative of this class of our fellowcitizens of Xew York, proves, after all. that Republican representative government is a success. Stevens never could have represented such a constituency, but Morrissey does. The Democracy also deserve credit for nominating their bes...

Our Sr.it Congreasman. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 28 August 1868

Our Sr.it Congreasman. Who shall it be ? The Republicans of Lancaster county will decide this question by a popular vote on Saturday, the 12th day of September next. Thousands and tens of thousands of Republicans throughout the country feel a deep interest in this question. They are anxious to know whether the Republicans of this great county really appreciate the higli honor which they have enjoyed for years in having the first statesman of the age as their representative, or whether it was merely a matter of "dumb luck," and because they couldn't help it? The only way to entitle us to full credit for having had S TEVENS as our actual choice, on account of his giant intellect and undoubted patriotism, is to nominate oar beat man— not a mere automaton, or man of straw, hut a radical, hold, intelligent and living representa tive man ; one who will endeavor to follow in the footsteps ' of his illustrious predecessor; one who is not put forward by any mere office-seeker's cliqu...

Copperheads and Taxes. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 28 August 1868

Copperheads and Taxes. Keep it before the people that the rebels and Copperheads are responsible for all the oppressive taxes under which the people are now groaning. The immense national debt was created during the bloody work of putting down the DEMOCRATIC REBELLION AGAINST LIBERTY AND UNION. And yet the Copperhead orators and editors have the audacity to say we Republicans are responsible for the enormous national debt and high taxes ! Let the unanswerable truth be constantly paraded before the people that the DEMOCRATIC WAR AGAINST THE UNION ,THE CONSTITUTION AND THE GLORIOUS OLD FLAG OF OUR COUNTRY, COST A HALF MILLION OF LIVES AND FOUR THOUSAND MILLION OF DOLLARS ! Had they yielded to the laws of the land and adhered to the good old way of deciding our political issues by an expres sion of the popular will at the ballot-box, there would have been no secession, no wtir, no national debt, and no taxes to pay! And every arm raised against the Union was the arm of a Democr...

The Truth of History. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 28 August 1868

The Truth of History. We deny that Thaddeus Stevens was the founder of the Common School System. Governor Wolf, of Pennsylvania, a Democrat, wag the founder.—Iteadiny Eagle. That GOVERNOR WOLF , as the Executive of the State, did heartily co-operate with STEVENS and other friends of the system is fully admitted, and all Republicans honor the name of WOLF for it. But how about the Democracy of Old Berks ? At that time liberty poles were erected, containing the characteristic mottoes of " Gegen die Frei-Schulen mid fuer fette Oehsen" (against Free Schools and for fat oxen). The opposition to GOVERNOR WOLF was so strong and bitter in Berks county that he was entirely repudiated by his own party, and a third candidate (Muhlenberg) supported, which opposition resulted in the election of RITNER for Governor by an overwhelming plurality. That is the way they served WOLF for being a co-operator with THADDEUS STEVENS in founding our greatest political blessing—the Common School System ...

"Still then Come.. '" [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 28 August 1868

"Still then Come.. '" Under this caption, the Reading Eagle triumphantly announces the coming over into the blaring ranks of Seymour Democracy, Ex-Governor W. F. Johnson, and pronounces him "another convert." Now, that is simply funny. Gov. Johnson, always was aDemocrat. About twenty years ago he saw a favorable opportunity to turn Whig, and ride into office through the popularity of General Taylor, by holding on to his coat-tail. He afterwards turned Know-Nothing, but unable to make another office by that dodge,he bolted in 1850, and offered himself for sale, but wasn't sold for want of bidders. After considerable bumming round, he finally joined the Johnson Bread and Butter Brigade. He is now, and for several years has been, in full fellowship with that poor, miserable, seedy and much despised gang of defunct politicans. All he now travels for is a constant supply of bad whiskey, and as long as he gets that his Democracy will never again be questioned.

If they do not poll over five hundred of these fraudulent votes , Gen. Cake will he triumphantly re-elected. A thorough and perfect organization is all that is necessary to carry the district by a handsome majority.

Seymour in 1801. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 28 August 1868

Seymour in 1801. On the first day of February, 1861 , Horatio Seymour made a speech in Tweddle Hall, New York , in which he openly expressed himself on the side of secessionists of the South. Among other declarations he made the following; '• It would be an act of tundnesii and folly to enter upon this contest, to underrate the South, and thus subject ourselves to the disgrace of defeat in an inglorious warfare. EVEN SUCCESSFIX C.'OKlisioX BY Till-: XoltTII IS INCITE AS KEVOUTIONAIiY AS SUCCESSFUL SECESSION BY THE Bourn." ' Neither Gov. AVise, nor Floyd, nor Jeff Davis ever uttered more barefaced and emphatic secession doctrine than this. And yet men who poured out their blood on Southern battle-fields in defence of the glorious old flag are asked to vote for this same traitor for the highest office in the gift of the American people !

"Seymour and the Constitution." [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 28 August 1868

"Seymour and the Constitution." This is the Copperhead rallying cry during the present campaign. Now we admit that Mr. Seymour is an open and out-spoken friend of " the Constitution ," but, if we are to believe his own declaration which he made to Judge Ruggles, of New York, in 1801, he is for the Confederate constitution, so-called, which was made and framed by the traitors, rebels and perjurers of the South, at Montgomery, Alabama, at the commencement of the war. If he has since declared for the CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA , framed for us. by WASHINGTON , FRANKLIN , MADISON , HAMILTON and others, let us know when ? We deny that he is for the Con stitution of the United States as it is, but we do assert, and dare the Copperheads to deny it, that he is still for the defunct Constitution ofthe Southern Confederacy!

Thaddeus Stevens ' "Baptism," [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 28 August 1868

Thaddeus Stevens ' "Baptism," The Universe, a Catholic paper published in Philadelphia, has the audacity to claim that the GREAT COMMONER "died the son of Pius IX," because he " gave his consent" to be baptised by Sister Loretta, at her instance and request, a few moments before he breathed his last. The following item in MR. STEVES * ' last will and testament, which was executed in November, 180", when he was of sound mind and memory, constitutes his true and only record on the subject ol religion, and clearly proves that his preference and deliberate conviction was in favor of the BAPTIST CHURCH : " If within five-years after my death, the Baptist brethren should build a house of worship in the city of Lancaster, for the purpose ot worshipping according to their creed, I direct one thousand dollars to lie paid toward its cost. 1 do this out of respect for the memory of my mother, to whom I owe what little ot prosfierity 1 had, and which, small as it is, I desire emphatical...

A Strong Candidate. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 28 August 1868

A Strong Candidate. We notice with pleasure that SAMUEL SMALL , ESQ., has been nominated for Congress by the Republicans of the York, Cumberland and Perry District, in this State. A better nomination could not be made. Mr. Small is the junior member of the well-known mercantile and manufacturing firm of P. A. & S. Small, of York. Mr. Small has never been a politician, but is a Republican of the very highest character. He never sought office, and is a gentleman of the strictest integrity and of extraordinary business qualifications. We hope the people of that District will elect him to ' Congress, though the Copperhead majority is large. There is no comparison to be drawn between him and Dick Haldman, a drunken and debauched rebel, and it would be disgraceful to the people of that District were they to prefer Haldman to the public-spirited, valuable citi-I izen , SAMUEL SMALL.
