— m . The Rebel Democracp. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 18 September 1868
— m . The Rebel Democracp. During the war the conduct of the socalled Itemo^rfcy towards the soldiers in As field was really outrageous. In those trying hc^ by tftem the victories of the armies ofvne tXhlon were uniformly disparaged, their hardships and sufferings feugEe^M,Pxfcft&v0 * ¦•»* tojrf*5 thuskum^ridiaueiiy the cause pronounced hopeless and wttrthtejst,; *nfl their fate foretom. tobAwm and Infamy. On the other hand, rebel triumphs were exaggerated, their successes magnified, their1 cause cheered and blessed. For the Union soldier were their contempt and obloquy; for the nebei, encouragement , and smiles.

¦ Wate/t Them. Information has been received in Washington city that extensive arrangements are. being made by the Democratic State Central Committee of Pennsylvania to colonize doubtful districts, in. this State at the October election with Marylanders. The latter State does not hold an election in October , and this will leave Mary land Copperheads and rebels free to hel p their friends in Pennsylvania- . This is the rebel Democratic game, and our friends everywhere throughout the State must be oh the, alert. All attempts at illegal voting should be followed by the prompt arrest of ipe perpetrator,^nd his putdshment to fliM, extent of the law. WHT is the Democratic party like Adam ? Because, like Adam, after they had sinned and been driven out of the •tardea of never-failing fruit, and compelled to labor for their bread In place of living upon the earnings of others, they sigh, labor and swear to return again to the good old days of indolence and plenty.

Seymour's Next Speech to a Mob. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 25 September 1868
Seymour's Next Speech to a Mob. The Detroit J'ost says, after Seymour gets into the White llottse (if he ever gets there) and Southern Democrats, led by Wade Ilainyton, ''the butcher" Forrest , Admiral Semmes, Beauregard and Wise, have risen in insurrection to " disperse' the carpet-bag State governments ," and make a sudden rush on Washington , to seize, the capitol, '• compel the Senate to submit ," and declare Southern independence. President Seymour will address theiii , from the steps of the capitol , as follows ; MY FKEINDS : I have come over here from the quiet of the White House lo see what was the difficulty—to learn what the trouble was concerning the Government. Let me assure you that I am your friend. [Uproarious rebel yells, led by Wade Hampton.] You have been my friends [cries from Forrest 's butchers , Yes, that's so], and now I assure you, my fellow Democrats, (hat I am here to show you a test of my friendship. |The old rebel veil from Wise's balallion.l 1 wish...
The Insne. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 25 September 1868
The Insne. VOTERS OF PENNSYLVANIA. — Tin lines arc clearl y and fairly drawn. Upot: f!ie one side you find loyalty to the Constitution and the laws,and upon the other side treason and dishonor. Each and every one has an opportunity lo judge for himself—whether be will join the hand of patriots under the leadershi p of the great chieftain Grant, or the nullification and repudiation party, under the leadership of Horatio Seymour. On the side of Grant you find such men as Sheridan, Sherman , Meade, Geary, Sickles and others in whom the country trusted during its hour of trial; while on the side of Seymour you find such men as Hampton, Forrest, Price, Beauregard, Semmes, Vallandigham and others, who for four years did all that was in their power to destroy this government and to disgrace that flag and who to-day, with impudence equalled only by their crimes, ask you to give up to them the control of the country, and repudiate the debt negotiated in order that their wicked rebell...
i Seymour's Sympathy for R ^ h ^ lf* [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 25 September 1868
i Seymour's Sympathy for R^ h ^ lf* \ ' Seymour's " real disloyalty during the | war is daily receiving fresh exemplificaj tion. A correspondent of the Rochester I Democrat thus describes a remarkable ili lustration of the manner in which the sincere sentiments of the Copperhead candidate were revealed: In the fall of 1802, the Triennial Episcopal Convention was held in Trinity Church, Xew York City, and the Wh of October was designated as a special season for services appropriate to the condition of the country. Murray Hoffman , Dr. Vinton and others moved and advocated patriotic resolutions; and the eloquent Mr. Goodwin delivered an exhaustive, speech on the subject, in which he earnestly pressed their adoption. The next day the subject came up again, the question being on Judge Carpenter's', of Xew Jersey, resolution, calling on the bishop for a form of prayer in relation to the wicked rebellion now prceailiivj in the land, for the safety of the country, and the successor o...
—M»~0.-~*»- Debt and Taxation. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 25 September 1868
—M»~0.-~*»- Debt and Taxation. The, Albany Journal speaking of Debt ' and Taxation says : This _ is what Seymour talked about. We will gratify him. Debt and taxation came noon (lie country, in consequence of a lit hellion initiated and encouraged by Democrats, prominent among whom was Horatio Seymour. A Republican Administration has largely reduced the volume of the debt and the amouiiL of taxation in the three years since active hostilities ceased. In two years after i the Mexican War, a Democrutis Adinini istrnlion trebled the debt, and in four years of peace another Democratic Administration doubled it. The Democratic party proposes to tax equally every species ' of property—the Republicans to tax nothing except luxuries and incomes , including the incomes derived from Government bonds, as well as from all other properly. There is the whole question in a nutshell.
Our Finances. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 25 September 1868
Our Finances. In an exhaustive address on national finances, by Edward Atkinson, of Boston, that gentleman said: We then claim that the Republican party has .proved its intention to meet the liabilities of tlie country by honest payment, and to remove from the p"op!" at the earliest moment tlie curse of an inconvertible paper currency. I have never been entirely convinced of the necessity lei- the issue of the legal tender notes as a war measure, until 1 entered upon the review of our finances, of which I am now giving you tlie tesults. 1 challenge any one to deny that the finances of the country have been managed by the Republican party with a success never before known in tlie history of the world. Would that 1 had the eloquence of Gladstone, that 1 might excite in you as much interest in these dry details as their importance demands.

The Irish Vote. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 25 September 1868
The Irish Vote. It is an extraordinary anomaly in political economy that the Irish should vote with the so-called Democratic party; so-called, because the party is not Democratic—the Republicans being the real Simon Pures. The Irish fly from oppression only to become oppressors. They ask for freedom but deny it to others. This course convicts them of insincerity, of injustice, of meanness. What wonder that' the cause of this unhappy people, is held cheap by the Republicans? For fifty years the Irish have hob-nobbed with the Democrats—for fifty years they have endured broken heads and bloody no9es—for fifty years, outside of New York, they have received nothing for their services. Who will say that the Irish are not a patient, long-suffering, humdle people? But they will grow wiser by-and-by 1
Ignorance at the South. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 25 September 1868
Ignorance at the South. But for the ignorance of the masses at the South, blessed peace would have reigned in the rebel States long since. This general ignorance appeals to our p ity and charity. Let it be remembered that schools at the South arc few and far between, and that a very large majority of the "poor white trash," as the "people" are often called, can scarcely read or write. This appalling ignorance is difficult to manage and secure, '" aud orderl y government will never be realized until it is overcome. It is from such lips that we hear the brutal cries of the "damned Irishman," the "damned Jew," the "damned Dutchman ," the "damned nigger," etc. These poor people look upon every emigrant to their section as an enemy come to deprive them of the means of living. Ignorant, lazy, thriftless , what wonder that they tear the hard y, industriou s , economical, intelligent newcome r? But all this will be cor rected and overcome. The' school master will go to the South, scho...
,. —.m]£r—<ns> -^M— ¦¦ The True Way. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 25 September 1868
,. —.m]£r—<ns> -^M— ¦¦ The True Way. Henry Ward Beecher puts the question straight in the following extract which we quote from a recent letter written by him: " Since ail the men who sought to destroy the Government are rallying around Seymour , it is fit that all the men who stood up for the Union, should gather about Grant. It is an honor that will not happen twice in a man's lifetime to have a ch ance to vote for such a man as Grant. No young man can well aftbrd to throw way his chance. Even if done , it ought to be iu favor of some better man than he who, in all tlie years from 18G0 to 18G5, studied to hel p Southern treason without incurring the risks and pains of overt and courageous treasonable acts."
-^» »-«»— Try it on if You Dave! [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 25 September 1868
-^» »-«»— Try it on if You Dave! While you cannot lind a Democrat who will bet that Grant will not be elected, occasionally 3*011 hear of a wager that he will not be inaugurated. Of course this means assassination ; but, it is scarcely worth while to treat the menace seriously. Imitators are generally failures. It is hardly probable that any one will attempt to copy the infamy of Booth. Suppose, however, Grant should fall by the hand of the assassin, Colfax remains, and if he, too, should be slain, his successor would be found the formidable champion of his country's cause. Assassination is the poorest argument of a poor cause, and Democrats, and rebels, and traitors, will find it profitless in the long run. This land is for the free. In the language of Grant—" This is a Republic where the will of the people is the law of the land."'
