Tlie New Rebellion. The rebel leaders, with Frank Blair at their head, propose to inaugurate a new rebellion if the election should be close. They will run tickets in three States not yet re-admitted, and insist upon counting the votes of their candidates; but, as these are the only States they widget , with the exception, perhaps, of "My Maryland," and "the dark and bloody ground," we need give ourselves no concern about the matter. Grant and Colfax will take care of the new rebellion, and speedily reduce all discordant elements to peace. Then will follow confidence, security, stability, enterprise, good-will, happiness, iu perpetuity.-

Another Immense Democrtic Gain. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 25 September 1868

Another Immense Democrtic Gain. The Democracy just made another gain of eight thousand, on Monday a week, in Maine. For the benefit of those who are uuable to see it, we will explain how they did it, thusly: Had the Republican majority been 28,000, it is supposed they would consider it a Republican gain of about 17 ,000 on last year's majority of 11,000, and therefore a Republican gain. But it so happens that the majority isn't 28,000, as it mi ght have been, but only 20, - 000, or 9000 Republican gain, which is 8,000 less than if the majority were 28,-000. This cannot be denied. Therefore as the Republican gain is only 9, 000, instead of 17 ,000, it will be seen at a glance that the Democrats actually gained 8,000 because the Republican majority is only 20,000, and not 28,000. Clear as mud!

The Negroe's Protest. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 25 September 1868

The Negroe's Protest. The following touching sentence occurs in the appeal made by the twenty-five negro members expelled by force from their seats in the Georgia Legislature. The miserable, cowardly "Democrats" refused to place the unanswerable jjrotest on the minutes of the House: "And, if we are to be massacred because we refuse to vote tlie Democratic ticket; if we are to be murdered in cold blood because we will not sell our manhood, then let it come—we can die but once; and if, as you state, thirty millions of white men are going to fall upon four millions because they are black, and will not vote for Horatio Seymour and F. P. Blair, for President and Vice President of the United States, both of whom have declared that the negroes have no right to vote, then ice are prepared to die, but not to be killed.'' We should like to see an attempt by the "Democratic" rebels of the Georgia Legislature or elsewhere to answer this logic.

—*~«»^^ Forney's Opinion of Schwefllebrenner. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 25 September 1868

—*~«»^^ Forney's Opinion of Schwefllebrenner. The Philadelphia Press of Monday contains one of "Pit Schwertlebrenner's" letters, with translation, with editorial comments, in which he says : " The East lias thrown its patois in to tlie books of James Russell Lowell, under the signature of 'llosea Bigelow,' and no one regrets tiieir perusal. The Southwestern form of speech and method of argument has been incorporated into-siile splitting lettei-s by 'Petroleum V. Nasby,' and these have done a deal of genuine good. The Pennsylvania Dutch is a language familiarly susceptible of a similar use. Mr Ranch, one of tlie editors of FATHER ABRAHAM, a spirited campaign sheet, published in Lancaster, conceived the idea of rounding this language, or rather this compound of German and English into effective and popular canvassing logic. His success has been complete, and the letters of " Pit Schwefllebrenner, from Schlifiletown," have created a sensation, if not as wide spread, as intense as...

" ¦ Congratulatory Address." [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 25 September 1868

" ¦ Congratulatory Address." lion. Wm. A. Wallace, Chairman of the Democratic State Committee, has just issued an address, congratulating the Democracy of Pennsylvania upon the result of the Maine election. Condensed, it is substantially as follows: " The sturdy Democracy of Maine (although overwhelmed by the superior power of numbers) have covered themselves witli glory. " In tlie very citadel of Radicalism they have demonstrated that you are upon the eve of n magnificent victory (taking for granted that we will fare much better in other States than we diil in Maine). " In 1800, Radicalism received in Maine 69,037 votes. In 18b'S, only 75,002, which ia an increase of only eight per cent., and not near as bad for us as if it were from ten to twenty per cent. " It the Radicals increase oaly eight per cent, in Pennsylvania, their total wifl, be this year, 3:11,000 votes. This can easily be overcome by the Democracy if they only poll a sufficient number of votes. The lioj)e of th...

'•Uriel." Hois }in<I; on Temperance. — — —>»» *»» . — Brick Pomeroy claims to be a strict temperance man, and of excellent moral character. He makes it his boast, publicly, that lie won't even employ a man who drinks whiskey or uses tobacco. But when became to Reading, on Friday last, he was told by the committee that, owing to his temperance principles, many of the best Democrats of Old Berks were down on him, and that it was necessary for him to do something to convince them that he can and will drink. Brick contended, for a while, that being a temperance man does not at all interfere with his Democracy. But, finally, he yielded, " for the good of the cause," and compromised by agreeing to take a glass of whiskey under medical advice, whereupon a Democratic doctor was sent for, who counseled him "always to take a drink of whiskey before and after speaking, so as to invigorate and protect his throat." After receiving this prescription the crowd stepped up to the...
