_1 Glbrioirs Record
The histery of the %Tublivan party is
indeed a prund recent. Inherithui:
bankrupt treasury, a dishonored credit,
and a gigantic rebellion. from the traitor
ous ..,Uministration which preceded their
advent to power in .1; , 61. the Republic:in: ,
heroically and snecessfull - ,- rapplcd with
and comiured all these obstacles to the
life and pr0u....e:..s of the nation. They re
plenished the treasury they redeemed
our credit ; they subdued the mightiest
rebellion that ever confronted civil
power since gl;vernments Were instituted '
among men t they struck the shackles
from four or human bein! , s, and
gave them every civil right under the
Constitution and the laws. And while
accomplishing these herculean tasks, the
Republican party administered the Gov
' eminent so wisely that prosperity has
been all the One abroad in the the land ;
*teat business enterprises have been
undertaken and successfully prosecut
ed ; factories have been built ; flirests
subdued. ; farms brought under cultiva
tion; navigable rivers improved ; thou
sands of miles of railway constructed:
the continent spanned by telegraph
wires; the two oceans well nighconnected
h}• a road of iron ; the emigrant protected
on the remotest frontier; Territories
carved out of the wilderness domain ; and
new States of promise and power added
to the National Union.
What other party in the history of
this country ever confronted such difficul
ties? What other party ever gained such
"Pit ,Sch wefflebrennep."
The "Pennsylvanisch Deitsh" letters
from " Pit Schwelllebrenner" are every
where pronounced decidedly the most
perfect productions of the kind that ever
appeared in print. Probably no feature
of FATTIER ABRAHAM contributes as
much towards the great popularity of the
paper as these productions.
We do not claim for them more than
ordinary wit and humor, but only perfec
tion as to the peculiar dialect. One thing,
however, is wanted to make them perfect
in every respect, and that is, in writing
as it is actually spoken by that class of
Democrats to which "Pit Schwefflebren-
Der" belongs, it would he necessary also
to give the many coarse and vulgar oaths
and expressions which characterize their
utterances. As our paper is FATnEn
_ABRAHAM, and not a La D enio , ra t,
these letters can only appear in such a
shape as to lit them for reading in all
places and among civilized and christian
ized people. The writer is, of course,
himself a " Pennsylvania Dutchman,"
and permanently engaged on FATHER
ABRAHAM—the only paper in the coun
try in which they appear regularly and
originally every week.

The prospects of a brilliant Republican
victory in the great city of Philadelphia
are , ettiing brighter every day. The
work of thorough and perfect organiza
tion is going on rapidly hi every ward
and election precinct, and the local ticket
, vives entire satisfaction to all elements
of the Republican party. The Germans
of the party are stronger now than ever
befin.e, and rapidly addin! ., new members
to their clubs. On Monday evening of
last Nveek they organized a German Cam
pain Club at Thirteenth and Spring
Garden streets, on which occasion an able
speech was made by Dr. J. 11. Seltzer.
The reception of Gen. Carl Schurz on
Saturday evening last, and his powerful
speech, also in the German language,
did a very good work. The various ward
mass meetings of the party are well at
tended. On Tuesday evening of last
week, "FATIIER ALRAIIA3I" had the
honor of addressing the Grant, Colfax
and Myers Club, of the Thirteenth ward,
on which occasion the lion. Leonard
Myers made a powerful and unanswer
able speech, liven the candid men
among his political opponents admit that
he will be triumphantly re-elected to
Congress, and his friends claim at least
a thousand majority hi the district, which
has always been a very close one. We
desire to record our deliberate convic
tion, that Philadelphia will roll up a ma
jority of live thousand for Hartranft and
Campbell in October next, and thus
settle the Presidential question beyond
the shadow of a doubt.

In 1.6.4, when (;rut was hrthling Lee
in his grasp in the rebel capital, and Sher
man was lighting his bloody way to At
lanta, when patriot hearts were cheered
by the hope of • soon subjugating the
rebellion, the Democratic party assem
bled at Chicago. - Horatio Seymour pre
sided. The convention, inspired by
slavery, and in sympathy with their rebel
Democratic friends in rebellion, resolved
that the war is a failure," and demand
ed " cessation of hostilities.'' The Re
publican party met in convention, de
clared for the complete abolition of
slavery, the subjugation of the rebellion,
and the re-electiim of Abraham Lincoln.
The Democracy, boastful as is its wont,
received 21 out of 2:;4 electoral votes,
and was beaten by a popular majority of
more than 400,000 votes. 156 will be
the counterpart of 1864.
Which is Right?
The New York lror/d, the Copperhead
organ. say► that General Grant, as a sol
dier, is" destitute of ideas and incapable
of foresight.'' Lieut. General Sherman,
the gallant soldier, in his address before
the Army of the Tennessee, last Novem
ber, says : " After a whole year of toil
and battle, varied in adventure that
would fill a volume, that renowned for
tress (Vicksburg) succumbed at last to
the army and navy. led by two heroes
that have no superiors in any country,
and both of whom still live to reap the
reward of their labors—Grant and Por
ter." Loyal men and " Boys in Blue,"
which do you believe—the lies of the
Copperhead sheet, or the words of the
brave General Sherman? Answer at
the polls in October and November next.

Professor L. ravioli Clark, hailin_
from the far down sands of New Jersey,
and labeled " The Actor. Author, Poet,
Ventriloquist, Magician, Vocalist and
Philosopher." just published a hand-bill
an d programme for a - Seymour and
Blair tirand Parlor Concert and Variety
Entertainment at Seltzer Hall," in the
classic and ancient town of Womeisdorf,
11t llarricks County." Prof. Clark
announces to the astonished native de
mocracy of Womelsdorf and vicinity,
that he will introduce " two of his great
est pieces," and also " an immense va
riety of other novelties too numerous to
mention that before the concert he
Nvill speak from the front of the hotel on
the political questions of the day—he
being an eloquent speaker and a sound
democrat,' for he says so himself. He
" will prove clearly and conclusively that
the niggers are determined to rule this
country, and crush out the white race en
tirely," not only in the States of the
South, but everywhere ! He pledges
himself to prove that there is a decided
difference betsveen niggers and white
democrats. Prof. Clark calls upon all
good, sound democrats," who are yet
tree from the pernicious influence of free
schools—democrats who are not guilty
of the stupendous folly of spending their
hard earnings for such worthless trash as
country soap and fine tooth combs, to
turn out on this glorious occasion, and
give their quarters lthe price of admis
sion) to enjoy the grand entertainment
and help Mr. Clark along in the good
cause he has undertaken." As an ad
ditional inducement for democrats to
rally ill their !night for this moral, po
litical, social and intellectual democratic
parlor entertainment of novelties and
varieties, a "subscription list" has been
opened " at the office of the Seltzer
llouse;" which means, at the bar, where
all sorts of red hot democratic refresh
ments may be obtained in a liquid state,
" at all hours of the day (and night) in
order that thosa who cannot attend the
grand concert and variety entertainment
may have an opportunity of showing .
their appreciation of Prof. Clark's labors
in carrying on his good work, by sub
scribing their names, and placing a sub
stantial token, in the shape of a 25 cent
stamp, in the hands of the clerk of the
Hotel," whereupon each depositor will
be entitled to one drink of the " very
