TJIL' OLD GUARD. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 18 September 1868

TJIL' OLD GUARD. The prospects of an overwhelming tnajority in glorious old Lancaster County were never more flattering than now. The nominations being made, and all local questions out of the way, at least for the present, the ensuing three weeks will be devoted to earnest, constant and persistent effort, to bring the entire Republican strength of (his great county to the polls. In this good work, and to this end, every Republican seems disposed to do something. We can give seven thousand majority. The only question is, whether the vote willhc broughtout. That our majority will reach six thousand live hundred, we firmly believe. That a full vote will give us seven thousand, we are certain. Republicans of Old Lancaster! What say you—shall seven thousand bo youi lowest figure? . If 3-ou say yes, then, depend upon it, seven thousand it will be To do this, all must work with a will. Let every doubtful voter be seen, spoken to, encouraged and supplied with documents. Swell the n...

m> A Sockdologer, [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 18 September 1868

m> A Sockdologer, As we have frequently referred to the wonderful and gratifying success of FATHER ABRAHAM , we feel called upon also to lay before our readers the following " sockdologer," which we received through the post-office last Saturday: " You said in your sheet that you were free from all factions or rings, and under that understanding I raised a club of twenty, hoping you would be as good as your word ; so I told the subscribers that Father Abraham was free from all faction, and now my subscribers demand their money. They say that I told them an untruth, that your sheet is tlie worst Ring weekly paper in Lancaster; so hereafter, when you want clubs raised, please get your Ring brothers at it, as 1 will lie after you no more. No FOLLOWER OF Rixos. The writer of the above is cordially invited to call at the office of FATHER ABRAHAM, prove the allegation and get his money back, as we do not want the name of a single unhappy Republican on our subscription list. m...

m m m The United American Mechanics. The State parade of the Order of United American Mechanics' last Friday in this city was decidedly the grandest scene of the kind ever witnessed in Pennsylvania—the late Masonic demonstration in Philadelphia, perhaps, only excepted-Over four thousand members of the order, clothed in their beautiful regalia of red, white and blue, were in line, and the entire line of procession, including the numerous wagons containg the Printing Presses, Boat Builders, Brickmakers, Carriagemakers, Foundries, Blacksmith shops and other trades , was fully two miles in length.

Old Jit-rks. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 18 September 1868

Old Jit-rks. According to pre.-cnt indications , Berks county will fall considerably below' her usual Democratic majority. We do not believe that it can possibly reach six thousand—some of our best informed men put the figure down as low as live thousand. In the city of Heading we are thoroughly organized, and a decided Republican majority may be looked lor. An immense meeting was held there last Saturday evening, on which occasion Col. John W. Forney made one of his most brilliant and powerful speeches. Among the pleasing incidents was the reading of a dispatch from Lancaster city by Col. Forney, announcing 1,028 majority in Lancaster for Dickey as the successor of Thaddeus Stevens, which was received with three hearty cheers b y the assembled thousands.

||ur feoircsjjonbcncc. Tlie Pole Raising at Churchtown—Dying Groans of the Cop peril ea ds. After the raising of tlie Republican Pole and Grant and Colfax Flag at Churchtown, the Cops became alarmed and resolved to hoist one themselves in honor of the butcher Forrest, the pirate Semmes and the guerilla Moscby, and thus ailbrd tlie fierce Democracy a chance to "rally once again." There is but one Democratic Hotel in Churchtown, but the proprietor, to his creditwe it said, was ashamed to disgrace his premises with the pole or the meeting. After much difficulty, a spot to plant the pole was found—in the corner of a grave-yard, emblematic of the passage, "Let the dead bury the dead." After the raising, on Saturday evening, the 27th ult, the motley crowd of men and boys attempted to give three cheers, but couldn't raise wind enough to do it. Next a Dutch Pill Pedler and Cow Doctor from Pennytovvn proceeded to address the, assembled Democracy. After a powerful but unsuccessful eff...

gitfyet Jpnrljam's §^if>s. REPUBLICANS at the polls and Gram in the field crowded the rebel Democrats into their "last ditch" four years ago. That is precisely what we propose to do again, now tliat they have made a fresh stand. WILKES' Spirit reports that no one has accepted the $5,000 bet offered by that paper that Gaant will be elected, and now offers to make the odds three to two in Grant's favor. DON PIATT , of Ohio, was right when he said the Democratic party was like a blind horse in a bark-mill, who goes round and round—round and round—perfectly indifferent whether he grinds tan bark or brimstone,,so he gets his oats.

R AUCTI & COCHRAN :—I heartily congratulate you upon your success in publishing FATHER ABRAHAM , the Republican campaign paper of the countrj". It is doing a glorious work in this section of our State! Its popularity is recognized everywhere, and well deserved. Even a number of Democrats read it; carefully, especially our country Germans, who are always anxious to hear from their friend Scliwcfnebrenncr. The people here are thoroughly aroused and organized. The meeting at Allentown, an . account of which appeared already, was a grand affair, and did us much good. You can depend upon it that Lehigh Valley will greatly reduce the hitherto large majority of the sham Democracy. We have an excellent local ticket, with our popular friend and neighbor, Major D. D. Jones, of this place as one of the nominees for ihe Legislature. Such nominations must call out our entire strength. Our accounts fr...
