Nigger! jigger! Nigger!—A " White Boy in Blue" Captures Four Africans!. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 30 October 1868

Nigger! jigger! Nigger!—A " White Boy in Blue" Captures Four Africans!. We have before assured our readers that the Democratic hatred of the negroes was only vented against the male sex. The softer sex of the colored persuasion exercise a most seductive influence .over our susceptible Democratic friends. Of the million mulattoes down South, every one of theni can boast a Democratic daddy. A distinguished Democratic orator and politician of this city can be seen almost nightly prowling through th* obscure streets and lanes of our city on the trail of some colored sister. This is a well known-fact, as every police officer of this city ean testify. A few weeks since a new horn colored infiuit was found floating jn the canal feeder near Titus-?ille, this county. The mother was arrested and.she swore her misfortune on the President of a Democratic Club in that vicinity. One evening last week a negro ball was held in Taylor Hall, attended by the first colored families in this city. ...

Y^m pronounced coercion equally revolutionary with secession. You assailed the first call for troops as unconstitutional. You refused to vote, either men or money to carry on the war. You bade tin: Southern States depart in peace. You declared that if slavery must be destroyed to gain the Union, thou the Union should parish. You declared your preference for the rebel Constitution, as against your own. When it became apparent that to proclaim universal liberty would weaken tha enemy ami reward the true frierjds of the Union, you nevertheless opposed it. You stoutly contended that the rebellion would never be suppressed, and triumphantly quoted every reverse to our arms as demonstrating it. You uru'ed the abandonment of tha war, and the resort to negotiation for the best attainable terms. In our gloomiest days...

An A polony. We beg our ten thousand subscribers to excuse us for a delay of one day in getting this weeks' FATHER ABRAHAM to PRESS. Our enlargement, and the loss of one business day this week, which was exclusively devoted to the country, not only by ourselves, but also by the men employed in the Printing Office, will be, we are sure, sufficient e: planation. THE Reading Times says that no less than five hundred hats, of all descriptions, were torn to pieces by the jubilant Republicans of that place in front of the League House on Tuesday night. They were so delighted and overjoyed at the good news that they took this mode of expressing their enthusiasm. The hat trade is no doubt brisk in our sister city Just now. j
