jSethcteb. ' —' ¦ - ' a What's the Matter With that Nose. Snyder kept a beer saloon some years ago "over the Rhine." Snyder was a ponderous Teuton of very irascible temper—"sudden and quick ' in quarrel"—got mad in a minute.—Nevertheless his saloon was a good resort for the boys—partly because of the excellence of his beer, and partly because they liked to chafe "old Snyder," as they called him ; for although his bark was terrible , experience had taught them that he wouldn't bite. One day Snyder was missing, and it wasexplamed by his "frau" who "jerked" the beer that day, that "he had gone fishing mit ter poys." The next day one of "the boys who was particularly fond of "roasting" Snyder, dropped in to get a glass of beer, discovered Snyder's nose, which was a big one at any time, swollen and blistered by the sun, until it looked like a dead ripe tomato. " Why, Snyder, what's the matter with your nose?" said the caller. " I peen out fishing mit der poys," replied Snyder lay...

Facts for tlie JPeople. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 9 October 1868
Facts for tlie JPeople. A vote for Hartranft secures a continued reduction in the State debt. Tax-payers remember that the administration of General Campbell will save the State Treasury about $20,000 this year by transcribing the list of liens under act of 4th of April, 1868. Jacob M, Campbell was not backward in arming for the defence of the Government. The soldiers who followed such men as he on the battle Held , will remember Campbell at the ballot-box. The Chester County Journal, published at Downingtown, heretofore a neutral Saper, has hoisted the Grant and Colfax , [artranft and Campbell flag, and is doing good service in the Republican cause. Land-holders and farmers if you want patents for your lands made out with neatness and correctness , vote for Gen. Jacob M. Campbell, the present experienced and faithful Surveyor General.— Remember that an error or omission in official papers may cause a lawsuit hereafter. Make a note of it, and rote accordingly, that the admin...

Untitled Article [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 9 October 1868
m^m m \WkM—WHAT WILL HAPPEN —Should Seymour be elected we may expect nullification and revolution in every rebel State; we may expect that all that haa been done will be undone. The negroes will be delivered up to the tender mercies of their former masters, stripped of their political rights, and most probably reduced to slavery. Every Union white man will be driven from his home and his property into exile, as a punishment for his fidelity to the Union. War will become the chronic condition of the eountry, and, in all probability, will not be confined to the Southern States, but will le extended to the North.
The Last Fir/lit of the War. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 9 October 1868
The Last Fir/lit of the War. \ Once more rings out lhc bugle call! Once more tlie banner files! Once, more the boys are, gathering Beneath the autumn skies; For treason makes its final fight Against the rights of Man! IJ'-.tthe flags w™. rise, as ill other days, And Grant is in tiie. van'. We've heard the rebel yell before, We've heard the traitor whine—When riot roared in the Hov.ery And Lee hatl crossed the line. Rut victory came in a blaze' of flame. That scorched the Rebel clan, For the boys and blue were stout and true—And Grant was in the van! Still raged the war ; and grass grew green O'er many a soldier form, 'Till peace came, fair as a morning star, Afler a night of storm. And shall we now the fruits of peace To treason tamely yield"? Xot while a soldier wields a vote, And Grant is in the field ? So close up ranks ancl forward inarch! 'Til the crowning fight is won! While the sweet old music fills our hearts With the soul of battles gone. Our cause is blest; we cannot...
Work! Work!. ' Work!!! [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 9 October 1868
Work! Work!. ' Work!!! But a few days remain before the election. Every man who loves his country and her institutions , every man who desires the success of right over wrong, of truth over error , of Godliness and purity over sin and corruption, ought to be active until the polls close on Tuesday evening next. Freemen of Pennsylvania! but two more working days remain. Is your district thoroughly canvassed? If not , see to it NOW. We have a clear majority of 20,000 in this State of loyal votes , but the Copperheads have again resorted to their usual tactics of fraud. Fraudulent naturalization papers have been issued and circulated in large numbers, and the loyal people of this State may be overcome at tlie ballot-box if every vote is not polled, and the greatest vigilance exercised. Be on your guard. Work unceasingly from now till the polls close on Tuesday next, and victory is yours.
'' DEMOCRATIC " POLICY. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 9 October 1868
'' DEMOCRATIC " POLICY. The so-called Democratic partj- presents for the adoption of the country, the policy of nullification and revolution.— They propose to nullify the reconstruction laws of Congress, and to overturn by military force the new State governments that have been increased in the South ; they propose to undo all that has been done ; to retrace all the steps that have been taken towards the settlement of our national troubles , and to place the country in a condition compared with which it would have oeen infinitely better for us " had we let the rebel States" go and suffered the Union to be dismembered. They propose the equal taxation of all kinds of property whereby the articles of prime necessity, which are indispensable to the poor and to the larboring men of the land , shall be taxed equally with those articles of luxury used only by the rich, and which enter only into the pleasures and dissipations of life. They present the policy of repudiation, of nationa...
The Difference. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 9 October 1868
The Difference. REPL'BLICAN POLICY. The Republican party presents to tho country for its adoption the policy of completing the work of reconstruction upon the basis upon which it has been carried forward—the basis of equal rights, of equal and exact justice to aU men. It presents the policy of peace, repose and stability; it presents the policy of protection to American industry and of placing the burdens of taxation upon the rich rather than upon the poor, upon capital rather than upon labor, upon the luxuries instead of upon the necessaries of life. Financially, it presents the policy of a return to specie payments at the earliest practical moment , ancl of maintaining tlie public faith b y the payment - of the national debt according to the very letter and spirit of the contract. It presents the policy of reserving the public lands for actual settlers, and giving them to every man who will make a farm and a garden where before there was a wilderness.
The llehel Prisons Remembered. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 9 October 1868
The llehel Prisons Remembered. A private letter from a lady in Utica contains the following off-hand account of a recent conversation in a railroad car, in the course of which some good reasons were given to show why votes should not be cast for Horatio Seymour: " A gentleman, formerl y a Democrat, with a clear smooth, telling voice, gave his views to some gentlemen with him, in such a way as to interest all the passengers in the crowded car. The first part that attracted me was the following: ' My county, which is Erie count}- , gave in the first Lincoln election something over 1000 majority for the Republican candidate - , in the second 1,700, and now I am prepared to say that she will give at least 3,200 for Grant.' There was a sensation. Some one said he had no grounds to go upon, and asked him how he counted ? 'Thus wise,' he replied; 'not one Democrat who gave one drop of his blood, or his children's, in the late war on thc Northern side would vote for Seymour. Not one...
