JVotr and Then. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 16 October 1868
JVotr and Then. Though, learning wisdom from the result of the recent elections, some of the Democratic sheets have ceased their abuse of General Grant, many of the Seymour mouthpieces continue their efforts to rob him of his military laurels, and make him appear as one ofthe worst men in the country. The following are some of the terms (culled from Democratic sheets) whieh were applied to the Lieutenant General before and after the avowal of his political sentiments: BEFOI'E. "A great soldier."' "An example of magnanimity." "A great captain." "The stuff of which statesmen are made." "A leader of rare endowments." '' A man whose valor saved the country.'' "The conqueror ofthe rebellion." "The hero of many victories." "The saviour of our institutions." AFTEK. "Doubtful in his policy." "Well enough but for his associations.' "The prospective tool of the Radicals.'1 "A general whose victories were too costly to be valuable." '"i'he lucky man to whom Lee surrendered, when he oug...

The. Tom ft of Lincoln. 11 is now three years and tour months since our President, AISUAHAJI LINCOLN , was brought to surlden death by thc assassin's bullet. His death was " the occasion of universal grief. His funeral procession from Washington to .Springfield was the inarch of a conqueror, whose •jrand victory had been won lie was buried on a beautiful spring-day in May, lsi">f,, in the cemetery at Oak Ridge, Springfield. On our lirst page we give an illustration of the tomb which has been erected to bis memory. As we stand in the presence of this tomb AVC remember the lirst months of the secession movement—the violent threats of war uttered by the .Southern branch ofthe Democratic party of these days—the peaceful declarations of the newly inaugurated President, which said to Southern Democrats, "Jf war must come, not we, but you are to be the aggressors ;" We remember the terrible struggle- of four years, and how, when it was over, aud the people were uniting in anth...

WE begin to understand why it is that the Democracy devote so much of their attention to General Butler. Grant said, in one of his reports, that Butler was "bottled up," and the Democracy will "go i'or" anything that is bottled up. THK rebels, who controlled tho Convention, defeated Hancock because he fought on the Union side at Gettysburg, and nominated Seymour, who led a rebel mob in New York at the same time, and for these reasons only \ THOSE who filled the nation with widows and orphans, now seek to rule the republic by electing Horatio Seymour to tta« Presidency.
tiie deserves Do Xot Forget [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 16 October 1868
tiie deserves Do Xot Forget •IHAT itcpuoHcan party the support of the nation , because in all its millions of men, not one of them was ever known to lift ;t hand against the flag of his country. Every dictate of patriotism prompts its continued support. Do Nor FORGET , whenever you see a crippled soldier, that he was crippled by the "Democratic" rebels, who made the war, and who are now shouting lustily for Seymour and Blair. For every soldier slain, for every hero crippled, for every war widow, and for every soldier's orphan, the "Democratic" party is alone responsible. Do NOT FORGET that the men who cursed our dying heroes at Andcrsonville are now shouting for Seymour and Blair. Do NOT FORGET , when you go to the polls, that the Democratic party forced the nation into war, and is thus responsible for the national debt, the slaughter and bloodshed, and for a million weeping widows andmourningorphans.our friends, neighbors, and relatives.

The Democratic Leaders. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 16 October 1868
The Democratic Leaders. A party, like a man, is known by the company he keeps. "What a company There is Forrest with the blood of Fort Pillow still dripping from his hands. Semmes, fresh from his piracies on" our commerce. Wade Hampton, the South Carolina slave master and cavalry officer of the rebellion. Beauregard, the rebel general who telegraphed for the execution of abolition prisoners. Stephens , Toombs and Cobb, a triumvirate of rebels, and at the head of this troupe is none other than Horatio Seymour , of New York, who , without actually enlisting in the rebellion, dallied with it, and addressed its fiendish representatives in New York as "Friends." A party with such leaders and such a chief is the rebel party. Such a party, so filled and permeated by treason, cannot alter any shibboleth of loyalty. Every loyal word must stick in its throat , as "amen" stuck in the throat of Macbeth after thc murder of his royal guests. A LOVE-LKTTEB —"Deer—I send u hi the buoy a bucke...
Rebuke to One of the Seymour Conspirators. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 16 October 1868
Rebuke to One of the Seymour Conspirators. Major General Edward M. M'Cook, of Ohio, a brave aud gallant officer during the war,and now United States Minister to the Sandwich Islands, in a letter dated Honolulu, Aug. 21) , to Senator Conness, writes as follows: "The news of the Democratic nominations has arrived, and I think they are radically weak—the very weakest combination that could have been made—the War Democrats won't vote for Seymour, beeause he was a Copperhead, and the Copperheads won't vote for Blair, because he wore a blue instead of a gray uniform. Much to my disgust I saw that a cousin of mine, Geo. W. M'Cook, had proposed the name of Seymour to the Convention, as the man who would drive the Radical cabal, at Washington, from power, &c. " I am sorry that I cannot be at home this fall, on George's account; he is somewhat powerful ou thc stump in Ohio, and I would like to follow him around and neutralize the ett'ect of his rhetoric, by stating the fact th...

¦ * - ¦ • -^- " l-Ujaal Taxation,."' [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 16 October 1868
¦ * - ¦ • -^- " l-Ujaal Taxation,."' " Equal taxation of every species of property, according to its real value " is one of the planks of the Seymour Copperhead platform. The sum of the whole matter is that the Democratic party " Demand that the poor man's cottage ' shall be subject to " equal taxation" '" with the rich ' man's mansion. That the washer-woman's implements of labor shall pay " equal tax," with the rich man's gold watch, silver plate, sevres ware, and "inlaid" furniture. That the poor man's solitary cow shall be taxed equal to thc rich man's blooded horses. That the poor man's S50 bond, bought on the pledged faith of the nation that it should not be taxed , shall be taxed equal to the neb man's bank and railroad stocks. That the poor needle-woman's sewingmachine or wicker baby cart, shall be " taxed equal" to the elegant lady's $1,-500 or #2,500 piano. That the poor woman's rag-carpet, made at night after a day's washing, shall be taxed equal to the elegant lad...

To Be Remembered. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 16 October 1868
To Be Remembered. Let it be remembered that nobody but "Democrats" instigated the Rebellion. . ' "Democrats" alone forced the Southhtn States into secession. " Democrats" alone were inarms righting to destroy the Government, and shooting down your loyal sons and brothers. " Democrats" alone in the North, gave their sympathy, aid and encouragement to the Rebels. " Democrats" alone are responsible for tbe enormous debt we have upon us—both State and National. " Democrats" planned and carried out the scheme to assassinate a President, regularly and constitutionally elected by the people. A " Democrat" tired the bullet that killed him; and Democrats North and South rejoiced at the consummation of the foul deed. " Democrats" alone are resisting the measures adopted by the Constitutional representatives of a majority of the people, to provide loyal, stable Governments for the Rebel States, and restore them to their places in the Union, and peace and prosperity again to the whole cou...
Young Men! [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 16 October 1868
Young Men! Who are about easting your lirst votes , do you ever read History? If you do; how can you vote for Seymour and Blair ? Their sentiments are precisely the same as those held by the father of the late rebellion, John C. Calhoun. Consequently had you lived in the days of General Jackson, you would have been a nulifier. Had you lived in tlie days of the revolution what would you have been ? To be a Democrat, you must advocate democratic principles. The first of these principles is that a majority of the people shall rule ; and second, that Congress represents the people. In neither of these doctrines do the present leaders of the party, which styles itself democratic, believe. Seymour,for the sake of slavery, was willing that the Union should be destroyed. Blair, more unscrupulous still , talks of playing the despot and tyrant, aud destroying Congress by the aid of an army. There is, besides, other food for reflection. Ask yourself how it comes that nearly every rebel...
"Democracy" and the Working Classes. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 16 October 1868
"Democracy" and the Working Classes. The Democrats have a very peculiar way of helping the working classes. By sympathizing with the rebels during the war they managed to raise the price of gold to 280, and when we fancied wo were returning to peace and prosperity again they began to talk revolution , opposed the Government and raised gold from 120 up to 145. It is a very fortunate thing for the country that they do not hold two conventions in one year, since one convention has given such an ugly twist to our financial affairs. Much more help of this kind will be the death of the poor people. A DEMOCRAT in the Uterior of Ohio, says the Government is in debt fifteen hundred dollars, the most of which was expended in bureaus and other useless furniture for the negroes, and " d—d if he'll vote with a party that lays out money in that way."
To the Patrons of Father Abraham. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 16 October 1868
To the Patrons of Father Abraham. Encouraged by a large number of our Republican friends in various parts of tlie country, we have concluded to continue the publication of FATHEI' AIJKAIIAM as a permanent institution. It will be considerably enlarged and otherwise improved; it will continue to be an illustrated newspaper; the very popular and amusing productions of "PIT SCHWEFI'LEI'KENNEPV" will also continue, and we feel safe in assuring the public that his forthcoming series of letters will be quite as interesting as those of the past. The price of subscription will not be increased—only SI.50 a year for a single subscriber, with a liberal reward for clubs. We also mean to continue our excellent illustrations. In a word, it will be our aim to make FATHER AHUAIIAM the most popular and original, as well as the cheapest weekly paper in the country. At the close of the present campaign we will discontinue the paper in all cases, unless renewed and paid for in advance. Those wh...
To Correspondents. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 16 October 1868
To Correspondents. A well written letter from Hamburg was unavoidably crowded out last week. The Copperhead leaders of Reading—Ermantrout, Ralston, Becker, Rightmyer & Co—are handsomely shown up, but as the production is now behind time, it is "postponed indefinitely." Under our new arrangement—FATIIEH ABRAHAM en, larged—we will be able to afford a considerable amount of space to such contributions, and we hope our friends will not hesitate to send them on. The reason a number of communications written for this paper did not appear, is not because they were not acceptable, but only because they were crowded out.
Gen. Dix in 18G1! [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 16 October 1868
Gen. Dix in 18G1! "If any man attemps to pull down the flag , sfloot him on the spot." Gen. Dix in ISdH ! " I see but one course of safety for the country, under existing circumstances, and that is the election of Gen. Grant." AN exchange says that the Democrats might as well try to feed a wildcat butter with a hot awl, as to try to prove from his record that Horatio Seymour is loyal.
