-m » m A Dying Effort. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 23 October 1868

-m » m A Dying Effort. William W. Wallace, (sometimes called coffee-colored William) Chairman of the "Democrat" (better known as "Copperhead") State Committee, has published an address (sometimes called "powerful") to the Copperheads (sometimes called "Democrats," but better known as "Sauer Kraut Gorillas") of Pennsylvania on the result of the late election. It is eloquent, logical, dispassionate, kind, sympathetic, overpowering, terse, masterly, simple, clear, explicit,unambiguous, mild, argumentative, Christiau-like, truthful, and every thing that is compatible or consistent with modern " Democracy." Besides, it is endorsed by "carpet-bagger" Smith and Andrew Jackson (Jackass!) Steinman—"Heavens, what a name To fill the trump of everlasting fame." the editors of that truth-loving , and respectable, and influential , and sour-kraut gorrilla blackguard sheet , called the Lancaster Intelligencer—the pauper organ of the Lancaster county " Democracy," for which they (the said Dem...

m » w Honor to Whom Honor is Due! [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 23 October 1868

m » w Honor to Whom Honor is Due! The result of the late election is due as much—if not more—to the efforts of the gallant Republicans of strong Democratic counties, such as Berks , Montgomery, Lehigh, Northampton , York, &c, as to any others. Right gallantly did they come up to the work. They largely increased their vote in most of them.— Their claims to the honors and emoluments of the party should not be overlooked, and he is an ungrateful dastard who does so. They have a hard time of it, and their labors are indeed "labors of love."

To the Patrons of Father Abraham. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 23 October 1868

To the Patrons of Father Abraham. Encouraged by a large number of our Republican friends in various parts of the country, we have concluded to continue the publication of FATHER ABRAHAM 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 SCHWEPFLEBRENNER" 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. Hie price of subscription will not be increased—only S 1.50 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 ABRAHAM 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 who desi...

•The New Rebellion—Assassinations at the South—Frank- Blair the Instigator ! [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 23 October 1868

•The New Rebellion—Assassinations at the South—Frank- Blair the Instigator ! Frank Blair was nominated by the Democratic Convention to gratify Wade Hampton, N. 15. Forrest and their rebel followers of the late Confederacy, because he promised and pledged himself, if elected, to wipe out and crash the governments of the reconstructed States, and restore all the leaders of the late rebellion to unlimited power, and enable them to restore slavery as it was before the war. On Friday night he made a speech in the city of St. Louis, in which he counselled the assassination of General Grant, incase of his election! He said in his speech that " a military dictatorship would be established, and GRANT WOULD NEVER LEAVE THE PRESIDENTIAL MANSION ALIVE—meaning that assassination is the means by which the popular Republican will is to be defeated ! In the last i>sr.e of the La Crosse Democrat— Brick Pomeroy's paper—we fiud an editorial containing a similar declarn tion. Unless all tl...

The Contest! Prepare for the . November Election! [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 23 October 1868

The Contest! Prepare for the . November Election! The returns of Tuesday's (13th inst) contest show that wherever tlie opportunity to pass upon the issues which divide the people was given, the Republicans have triumphed. Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana and Nebraska have declared that the cause lost at Appomattox, and partially restored by Johnson's perfidy, has been again lost. Tbe people, the final court of appeal, have rendered judgment.— The Presidential election has been decided. What we have yet to do is to give force and volume to Tuesday's verdict. Let us not rest contented until Grant is chosen by a majority so vast that further opposition to the laws and the Constitution will be hopeless, and any attempt to carry out tbe Democratic threats of another civil war, madness. Clinging to tlie merciful and liberal measures of reconstruction which the people have endorsed by such unbroken unanimity, let us show the recalcitrant fools, who kick against the popular fiat, that be...

The Old Guard. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 23 October 1868

The Old Guard. Tlie grand and magnificent majority of 0,743 in this glorious old county was not the work of mere politicians , leaders or wire-workers, but of the INTELLIGENT AND PATRIOTIC PEOPLE. School houses, school masters and school books employed for years past in this county did the work. In localities where general intelligence and true civilization characterizes the people, the Republican majorities were largely increased. Nine-tenths of the young men who have just entered manhood, and fresh from schools, acadedies and colleges, voted the Republican ticket. The value of our glorious system of general education, founded by TIIAD DEI'.S STEVENS, THOMAS II. BTRROWES and GEORGE WOLF , is fully appreciated , and will be made more and more perfect , as the rising generation, who more fully understand its many benefits and blessings, become the leaders of society. In a word, Lancaster is thoroughly Republieanized. and may be relied on for all time, to stand by and defend a...

m Don't Cease to Labor! [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 23 October 1868

m Don't Cease to Labor! Republicans, you have done nobly in the State. The first battle has been won ; but you must not rest satisfied with this preliminary victory. Go to work at once in every ward, borough and township in the county. Ascertain what Republicans were not at the State election; and urge them to attend at the Presidential election; and make them promise to be there and vote. Find out the men who were not assessed, and have them assessed immediately. See that those who have not paid their taxes , do so at once. Revise and correct your poll books. Pl y the fence men (and there are thousands of them now) with newspapers, documents and argument , and they will quit the doomed party in squads and companies. Do these tilings , and then see that tlie entire Republican vote in each election district is polled. Let every man be up and doing. Work from now until election day with a will.

Close up the Ranks! [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 23 October 1868

Close up the Ranks! Another desperate effort will be made by the Copperhead leaders to defeat the will of the people on the third of November next, which can only be done by the most stupendous and barefaced frauds. How, or by what sort of a system of rascality they hope to recover their lost ground, we cannot imagine; but that they have some scheme upon which they may base some hope of success, is certain. We entreat every Republican to go to work at once, and keep up the fight until the evening of the third day of November. Our victory on the 13th instant, only secured for us the inside track. The great race is not yet run ; the grand battle is yet to be fought. The October struggle has only placed the enemy within the range of our guns, but the battle is yet to be fought all along the line—We must watch every movement of the enemy, and guard; against surprise , or successful assaults upon our weak points. Victory, grand and glorious, is certain if we keep up the light vig...

Seven Thousand! [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 23 October 1868

Seven Thousand! Let no Republican of the Old Guard flatter himself that his vote and his best effort is not needed to win the grand and final victory on the 3d day of November. The ten thousand majority on the 13th inst., was the result of hard work—an earnest and persistent effort on the part of the working men of the party. By continuing the good work, by working and pressing on, the majority in Lancaster county, for GRANT and COLFAX will not be less than SEVEN T HOUSAND.— " Push things."

IN Boston tbe clergy- are debating the question, " whether an intelligent Christian can be a Democrat !•"' As it is impossible to point out a single article in the Democratic creed which rests on a foundation of morals or charity, and as most of the principles of the party conflict with every idea of right, justice and duty, being merely unconscientious appeals to anger, hate, and the worst passions, the query is by no means a jocular one. To relieve Horatio Sevmour's anxietv about his "victories," we have looked all through the books and can find none whatever.
