An Eloquent Appeal! [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 30 October 1868
An Eloquent Appeal! A monster meeting ot the war Democrats and merchants of New York city, favorable to the election of Gen. Grant, was held at the Cooper Institute last week. Indge Edwards Pierrepont, a war Democrat, and until lately a prominent leader of the Tammany Democracy, made a powerful speech, an extract of which is subjoined. It will repay persual: "And now I ask upon this issue , who will vote against Grant? AVill Mr. John Q. Adams, after his recent letter and speech of just rebuke to the South , vote against Grant ? Every rebel hater of our free government will vote against Grant. Every cruel jailor who exposed , starved and robbed our prisoned soldiers, will vote against Grant. Every aider in those crimes against humanity aud against civilization, perpetrated at the Libby and Audewonville, will vote against Grant. Every contemner of our flag, despiser of our Government , and vloiater of its benign laws, will vote against Grant. Every rebel raider from Canada, who ...

Th*> Moral Effect, of the Election. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 30 October 1868
Th*> Moral Effect, of the Election. It is almost impossible to form any adequate idea of the el&ct the recent contest in Pennsylvania, Ohio and Indiana will produce upon the remaining States. The Republican majorities which have been rolled up in these States may be compared to the ball of snow gathered on the mountain-tup, the proportions of which, as. it descends, first with slow , noiseless movement, gradually assume an immensity commensurate with its velocity, until finally it rushes with the speed of the wind toward the plain below, overriding all obstructions. Beginning with New York, we may take it for granted that the result of the recent elections will produce a marked effect upon the canvass in that State. New York can not afford to assume a secondary part in the programme which has been marked out by the events of the last few days. The instincts of the commercial classes of that great State are in imical to majorities. They will never for a uuoment...
Eloquent and True. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 30 October 1868
Eloquent and True. The Rev. Do WittTalmadge, of Philadel phia in a sermon delivered m his church on Sunday the 18th hist., gave utterance to the following passage. Its truth and torce cannot be questioned: " God has over and over again, in the last ninet y years , shown that he means to have this country for himself. Was it the greatness of Washington , and the bravery of Koscuisko , and the devotion ot Marion , and <he sacrifice of Warren. and the patriotism of our fathers that saved this land in Revolutionary encounter i » No! It was the God who in the awful winter nights at Valley Forge, looked upon our troops, and roused tha heart of the Pole till he came to fight for our cause, and drove up the surges of battle to the top of Hunker Hill and enkindled our ancestors to do and die for us, their children's children. It was Jehovah, that, at Lexington and Yorktown and Monmouth, unsheathed his sword and exclaimed to the trembling Colonists, "Forward! I will make thee...
The Present Danger. ¦ [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 30 October 1868
The Present Danger. ¦ The fact that the panic-stricken Democracy are bewildered and confused by the demoralization of their leaders, should not be allowed to make Republicans indifferent or careless as to their vote. It should never be forgotten that, voting is a business with the great body of the Democratic party, who will perform that duty . just as well without a Presidential candidate as with one. It will make no difference whether Blair and Seymour 1K> off or on the ticket, the Democrats, as a lx>dy, will go to the polls just as they will s>> lo their dinners, or l<> the free lunch at flic u'^nlar time. Then; will, therefore, he a ncii'Msity for the fiepuhlicaus to go to the polls. !.'•! Republicans not stipjiose that the election Is over; it will require a full vote and the mosi. untiring exertion to complete tlie good work commenced last Tuesday.— Chicago Tribunr.

Democratic Love for the Soldier. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 30 October 1868
Democratic Love for the Soldier. As the so-called Democratic party is asking for the votes of the Union soldiers, we would ask these soldiers to carefully weigh the following : What party was it opposed the bill providing for the issue of rations to soldiers at the commencement of the war ? AVhat party was it who , at the time when our soldiers most . needed encoJhV ageiuent, said: "Not another man nor another dollar for this war?" AVhat party was it that, when our army needed reinforcements, opposed recruiting and the draft, and incited riots? AVhat party was it that disfranchised the wounded and crippled soldiers who are inmates of the National Military Asylum (Soldiers' Home) at Dayton, Ohio? These men have a permanent home there, and are under the laws of th« State of Ohio, entitled to the elective franchise. If a soldier who has lost his health or a limb', in defence of our common country is not entitled to vote , wh© is ? Borne rebel, we suppose. AVhat party is it that i...
To the Patrons of Father Abraham. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 30 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 unproved ; it will continue to be an illustrated newspaper; the very popular and amusing productions of "PIT SCHWKFFLEBKENNER" 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 $1.50 a year for a single subscriber, with a liberal reward ¦ for clubs. AVe 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 m 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 de...
Mm ^orosponbence [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 30 October 1868
Mm ^orosponbence Ijetter from York. YOUK, PA. Oct. iifith IMS. DEAR FATHER ABRAHAM:—'• Old Mother Democracy" still lives, but is in " a mighty bad way." She has an awful tongue to show to r. Doctor. 'Her mind wanders continually after good candidates. I have suggested the man in the moon and Robinson Crusoe. The former would have a lunar influence on weakminded Copperheads, Locofocos, &c, and the latter could use his man Friday as a " repeater." When " Old Mother" had that "spell" on the 13th inst, Doctors Hartranft and Campbell gave lier too many " blue" pills. Should she be no better by Nov. 3rd, it is proposed to consult Doctors Grant and Colfax. As Doctor Grant is such a great " blue" pill man, and as there is hardly a doubt that he will be " called in," I think we might as well get all things ready for a " wake" a la Tim Finnegan. It will be unnecessary, however, to get one of those patent coffins, for when the old lady " pegs out" it will be "fprgood." I am savin...

VOTE EARLY [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 30 October 1868
VOTE EARLY Seymour ayainst the " Whirling Tide!"1 Seymour, having nothing to lose by the operation, and for the purpose of convincing the people that he is a candidate , is now trying to reverse the " whirling tide" of public opinion, by making a trip to the AVcst and speaking to his friends along the route. His first important stopping place was DUNKIRK, where he was received by a delegation of his friends, preceded by a drum and life. He was accompanied to the platform of the hind car , where he was introduced to the crowd, who gave him three cheers. No speech. AT WESTFIELD , he again appeared on the platform of the car, and was much admired by those who came to see him. AT ERIE , he made a speech and told the people that there are sixt y thousand office holders in Pennsylvania. " I am wearied with my exertion ," he said, and then concluded his remarks. AT ASHTABULA. he was met by a young man who stepped up,shook him by the hand and said " Mr. Seymour, I'ain a young man, b...

The congressional delegation is unanimously Republican. It also secures the election of a radical United States Senator in place of the imbecile Johnsonite Van AVinkle.
Trying to "Play Possum'." [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 30 October 1868
Trying to "Play Possum'." The latest dodge of the Democratic leaders is to let on they have given up the fight; that it is all over ; that Grant's election is a fixed fact, and that they will make no further effort to carry the State, but will vote merely to keep their party together, whilst the fact is that they are secretly at work, all over the Slate, doing their very foulest to increase their vote, and by making Republicans believe they have given up the light, they hope to create a feeling of indifference in the Republican vote. Don't let the play of "Possum" deceive a single Republican. Let every man be brought to the polls »n Tuesday next. VOTE EARLY!

Seven Thousand Men of the Old Guard! Remember that we are pledged to give not less than seven thousand majority for Grant and Colfax on Tuesday next.
