Repudiation. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 9 October 1868
Repudiation. Tlie success of the Democratic party necessarily involves the repudiation of the national debt. The Northern wing of the Democratic party is composed chiefly of the men who opposed the war, who sympathized with the rebellion, (many of them giving it actual aid and comfort,) who opposed the creation of the debt in the beginning, who declared that the legal tender notes were illegal and worthless , who not only refused to lend their money to the Government , but endeavored to prevent others from doing so, and whose every prejudice and feeling is now hostile to the payment of the debt and to the men who own it. The Southern wing of the party is composed of the actual rebels ; the men who waged war against the Government for four years; the men who invested their property in Confederate stocks and bonds and lost everything; they were subdued, and are now impoverished, embittered and desperate. Is there any man insane enough to believe that if these men were placed iu ...

« _M r The Temper of the South. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 9 October 1868
« _M r The Temper of the South. Biot and bloodshed prevail throughout the rebel States. Organized secret societies arc attempting by murder, conflagration and robbery to drive into exile the Union white men and all who do not succumb. In a recent speech at Atlanta, Mr. Toombs pointed out the course to be followed. The Union white man was to be treated as a political and social enemy. The physician should not allow himself to be called into a Union family ; the lawyer should not take a fee from a Union man; the mechanic should not shoe his horse or mend his wagon ; thc merchant should not sell him a pound of coffee or a yard of muslin ; they should not be his neighbors, recognize him upon thc street, speak to his family, or in any respect treat him as a human being. "\\ ade Hampton, soon after his return from the New York Convention, proclaimed the policy which was to be pursued toward thc negro—which iu short was coercion by stair:aliou. He said that unless the negro would v...

o Don't Crow Too Soon [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 9 October 1868
o Don't Crow Too Soon To CORRESPONDENTS.—We have a large number of communications and articles written expressly for FATHER ABRAHAM, which were unavoidably crowded out from time to time, and laid over. Some of them are very well written and deserved a better fate than being deposited in the drawer of deferred matter, but with our limited space we could _ not do better. We could only have pub lished all these original productions by crowding out almost everything else. Remember, Bepublicans, that the most infamous frauds will be attempted ou Tuesday next by the Copperhead rebels. Thousands of illegal voters have been imported and scattered all over Pennsylvania. Earnest and systematic work will defeat them by an overwhelming majority. Crowing over and bragging about the coming victory is not the way to win it, but work—hard, earnest and constant work will do it. VOTE E ABLY1

Bad Figures! The Copperhead committee at Reading, after carefully canvassing the city, found, to their amazement, a Republican majority of sixty, which shows a Bepublican gain of forty.

—o Voters, Remember! [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 9 October 1868
—o Voters, Remember! That the uniform is a badge of disgrace in the South , aud that every Union soldier ,from the general sent to execute the laws to the private in the ranks, has been, and continues to be, the object of the incessant assault and persecution of the rebel leaders. Remember that the Democratic leaders, now full of sympathy for the Southern rebels , never contributed a dollar to the public treasury during the war - , never denounced the savage treatment of the Union people of the South or the Union prisoners ofthe North, and never rejoiced over the triumph of our arms. Remember that the Democratic platform was devised and dictated by a rebel general as a condition of the rebel support to the Democratic party. Remember that every rebel who raised his fratricidal hand against the Government is a Democrat. Remember that Horatio Seymore was nominated by a convention entirely controlled by the oflicers and politicians who plunged the country inlo civil war. Remem...
The War in tlie South. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 9 October 1868
The War in tlie South. iiet us nave Peace I . JN OW there is no peace, but actual war in the Southern States, for whicli the Copperheads of the North are directly responsible. In Georgia, in Mississippi, in Texas, and in other parts of the South, the rebel not only openly defy the laws of the land as they did 1801, and until they surrendered at Appomattox, but they are at work, daily, butchering unarmed Union men and freedmen indiscriminately. On Monday last, at Opelousas, La., the organized and armed rebels fell upon one hundred negroes, and butchered them in cold blood. A Bepublican newspaper oflice was destroyed, and the editor beaten in the 'most brutish manner by these beastly Seymour Democrats! The only way to secure protection to all American Citizens, in every State, and the blessings of Prosperity and Peace, wherever the flag of our country floats, is to elect Grant and Colfax. Let us have Peace! VOTE EARLY.
In the Market. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 9 October 1868
In the Market. The Reading Eagle accuses the Republicans of having bought over the editor of an Irish Democratic paper in New York. This is their old story—whenever a patriotic, freedom loving Democrat quits the foul party, they will have it that he is bought by th» Republicans. According to these accusations Democratic editors and Democrats generally, must be in the market. We never hear of such a thing as buying up Republicans , for the simple reason, we suppose ^ that that they are not for sale. Will the Eagle inform us, what is the lowest cash price of a common Democrat just now? VOTE EABLY.
Save Your Stamps. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 9 October 1868
Save Your Stamps. The Copperheads favor a repudiation of the national debt, and hope to make votes by their clamor against bondholders. They forget that every poor man who has greenbacks in his pocket, from fifty dollars down to a ten cent stamp is just as much a creditor of the Government as the bondholder. If they expect to induce poor men to vote away their hard earned greenbacks they will find tlv.-ir mistake on next Tuesday night. VOTE EARLY:
