" Fiyhtiiif/ Dick Coulter." [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 25 September 1868

" Fiyhtiiif/ Dick Coulter." The Democrats claim Gen. Richard Coulter, of Westmoreland county, as a new convert from Radicalism to Democracy. We happen to know Gen. Coulter personally and politically. That he is one of the bravest of tlie brave as a soldier, is true. That he ever was a radical Republican is not true. He is now, and for years has been, a conservative and bosom friend of Ex-Senator Cowan. The Lancaster Intelligencer a few, clays ago published a speech made in Westmoreland county by General Coulter, iu which he defines his position as follows: " In former years, and in days gone by, I opposed the doctrine of universal suffrage and indiscriminate voting. I claimed for the American born, who understood our language and the principles of our institutions, the exclusive right to choose our own rulers and the sole exercise of the inestimable right of sum-age. It was then argued that the foreigners should not be allowed to vote—that they had not the qualifications to do...

Hard on Horatio ! [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 25 September 1868

Hard on Horatio ! The following lines were taken from the body of a dead Union Soldier, who was killed in one of the battles, soon after Seymour and his "friends" attempted to get up a rebellion in New York, by murdering draft officers and burning colored orphans'assyhuns and seho"l houses: Oh, may that rebel Seymour float, In open sea, in open boat, In Ieelantls cold without a coat, Without a compass, sail or oar, A million miles away from shore . Where mighty waves like mountains roar; May sharks devour him, stem and stern, A whale engulf him down in turn, And tlie devil get tlie whole concern; Oh, may the cursed traitor dwell Beyond the sound of meeting bell, And gnash his teeth and groan and sigh, And mid his roars and frantic cries, Oli! make the finest ashes rise, And blow them in his bloodshot eyes—In burning brimstone may lie be Where little rascals dance in glee,. Then lock the door and lose the key.
