There is so much that is merely pro-
fational, in the articles of political news-
when those who write for them,
hayea political end to accomplish, —we
mean, so much dictated by their practical
motto, “the end justifies the means,” that
• people are not generally disposed to at
tach* much importance to what they pub
lish. If they deem it necessary, or expe
dient to do so, to serve their base ends, it
Is but too well known, they do hot scru-
ple, to resort to detraction and, falsehood,
with the utmost freedom. “All is fair
in politics.” The editor may claim to be
personally honest, in his private transac-
tions; imd yet he does in6t seem to con-
sider it any violation of his moral duty to
'‘filch” from his neighbor his “good
' name.” He may be a member of a
Christian church, and profess respect for
the precept, “ thou shall not bear false
witness against thy neighbor,” and yet,
his "vocation seems, sometimes, to impel
him, to a resort to falsehood, detraction.
and everything that is justly haled and
These reflections arte,forced upon us by
a ireiy malignant article in the last issue
of tbp Hollidaysburg: Register, evidently
intended to injure ahd degrade, person
ally. Col. Hall, and to gratify the personal
malignity of somebody. The evident hy
pocrisy of the effusion, is sufficient to
characterize it. “ Against Mr. Hall per
squally,” says the tyriter, “we do no
entertain a .single unwind feeling.’’ Can
any candid man read the article in which
this sentence is found, without intuitively
pronouncing it a deliberate falsehood ?
No one to sea that the whole ar
ticle broadly gives the lie to this hypo
critical assertion ; or that the whole is
the spawn of the basest personal malig
nity. But, when it Hs nemembered, that
this editor has been; filing his columns
for sometime with Articles of the same
i character, evidently dictated by the same
i motive, and equally unscrupulous, the
falsehood and hypocrisy of his professions
erf honesty now, ;arei placed beyond
all question.' , When he fancied, it
would be sufficient, without insinuating
balder falsehoods, tostell in a labored ar
ticle of a column or more, the ridiculous
story that Hr. Hall|had got somebody ap
pointed enrolling officer for the purpose
of preventing himself.from being enrolled,
the simplest statement of the facts, so
completely unmasked the absurdity and
falsehood of the silly fiction, as to strip it
of every thing but its ill nature, its ma
lignity and factional spirit; and that
was abandoned; and the graver charges
insinuated in the article before us, are
unscrupulously put fforth. And still the
writer says, “ against Mr. Hall person
ally, we do not entertain a single unkind
feeling I” This is not intended to be un
derstood literally. The writer would
surely expect no one to believe him. He
means that fae is opposed to Mr. Hall as
a candidate- for congress, and claims the
privilege of lying ifd libitum to prevent
it He is, it is trite, a member of the
church; but bis doty to his party—or
rather to the little faction whose tool
lie is—-must override everything.
1 When he published that Col. Hall got
himonlf passed over in the enrollment to
escape the chance of having to do what he
hei did, —pay |3oo| to keep himself out of
the way of rebel bullets,—everybody sneer
ed at the absurdity of the charge, and as
cribed it to most blinding personal malig
nity. it was rendered still more absurd
. by the insinuations made then and since,
Mr. Sail was jrich and disposed to use
Ms mon"y without stint for his personal
advancement. No one who knows Mr.
Ball, ns we do, or who knows, as we do,
wh&t he has done, iand is ever ready to do
for others, when any meritorious occasion
offish, waited to hear anything in reply to
the silly and and! tricked insinuation.—
But wo are a little; disposed to excuse Mr.

|;s a proposition which does not admit of
i any doubt.! We challenge him to point
out', where, or when, or how, Mr. Hall i
made a dollar dishonestly. ■
It is charged, also, in the same i
spirit, and? fromlhe same motives, that Mr. ;
Hall spent jjiis Senatorial term in an effort |
to repeal the tonage tax. His sentiments, \
speeches arid votes upon that subject, are j
well knowrt to the public. He submitted
all at the time, to the scrutiny of the pub
lic judgment. Lot him abide that judg
ment. Wd! doubt not he is willing to do I
so. He voted in the Senate, for a bill
which passed that body, imposing a ton
age tax upon all the roads of the State,
whicli was equal and just in its operation, j
and would ihave secured a larger revenue j
to the State. This fact the Register: man, |
would conceab It did not suit his pur
pose, or the throbbings of bis malignant
heart, or the end he had in view, to tie fair ■
and candid; although "‘towards Mr. Hall
personallyihe does not entertain a single
[ unkind feejing!”
The remaining charge is that Mr. Hall
entered into a corrupt bargain with Mr.
McAllister, or his friends, to sacrifice Mr.
Blair. We do not believe it ; and have
never seen any evidence of it. It is true,
that Mr. flail, for rfeasons well known, ran
in this county a very large vote ; 'while Mr.
Blair, for Reasons which his friends should
not wish to have discussed, but equally
well known, did not run so well. Hall’s
majority in this county was I’JOtV: Mr.
Blair’s 300. It is necessary, therefore to
impress upon the public mind some reason,
other than the true qne, for the difference
in the popularity of the two men : and no
job, requiring so, much ingenuity* as’to
account for anything falsely, cab be accom
plished without tools; and such tools as the
editor of the Register. But here is the
whole difficulty. This is the sore, place.
If it had not been for the fact that Mr.
Hall’s personal popularity-was attested by
the largest vote which the county ever
gave to any man, “ against Mr. Hall per
sonally,” the Editor of the Register might
“not entertain a single unkind feeling!"
But as it is, Mr; Hail’s popularity must
be considered at once evidence of .his dis
honesty, and that he is supported by a mere
faction. ; The, simple fact is, that 001. Hall
ran a large vote because he was personally
popular;! and that for the best of,all rea
sons, —that (whatever inlirmities he may
have) he; has ever displac'd in an eminent
degree, the virtue of serving his friends with
a degree of personal energy and success tvhich
few men possess. Favors done, save to in
grates, though that feeling may not be ap
preciated by such cold-blooded and heart
less creatures, as the editor of the Regis
ter, are not overlooked by people generally.
Perhaps this defamatory scribbler will toll
us why it was, that when the State ticket
ha 3 TOO in Huntingdon county, Mr. Blair
had a little over 300 ; and whether Hun
tingdon county was or was not, in this
Senatorial District. Perhaps he will tell
us also, why it was, that' Mr. Blair was
below the State ticket in every county in
.the District. But we do not choose to
discuss this subject; and only throw out
these, hihts in answer to the insinuation
that Mr. Hall’s popularity at the polls,
proves tfiat he was unfair to his! party or
any of its candidates. ;
Let us add, in conclusion, that if the
party was ever beaten in consequence of
an exceptionable candidate forcing himself
upon it, such a result will not' happen,
through any aspirations of Mr. Hall. If
Mr. Calvin, or any other gentleman who
is true to the Union cause, is the choice of
the people, he will receive the cardial sup
port of the man whom these libelling
.scribblers are disposed now to pursue like
bloodhounds. But we would warn those
who feel interested, in this subject* that per
secution and falsehood are not likely to
accomplish the end in aid of which they
are: employed; and that a man who two
years ago, had, as his friends,'; a major
ity pf 1700 of the voters of Blair county,
may have some friends still, and friends
who are not willing to She him crushed by

A Mean Attempt.
Messrs. Editors.: —On last Tuesday evening,
as a little son of the writer s, not four years old,
in company with some other little boys, older than
himself, was passing the u Arcade House,' some
individual, to me unknown, enticed the children
into the bar-room, and offered them something to
drink, wuich the children say “ stunk " I am in
formed the child icfiLsed to partake of the accursed
j>oison, for which I feel thankful to the God who
watched over him. As to the individual who
made this mean attempt. I have only to pray, in
the language of my Saviour,- “Father, forgive him,
he knew not what he did." For alas, 'ris thus
drunkards are made —human beings ruined—souls
damned. Children are enticed, and from them
men demons grow. It is but justice: to state that
the landlord denies any knowledge of the matter,
and attributes it to some unauthorized jterson about

Rebel Capture of,Plymouth, N. C
Xewuekn, April 27.—The battle which had |
been going on nr Plymouth, from Sunday, tiie 10th, j
until the 20th. resulted in the capture of the city |
bv the enemy on Wednesday, at noon, including j

out until noon, repulsing the enemy in seven des

while our loss was slight.
General Wessels, who gained such distinction
in tfie seven davs 1 light hetore Hiehmond. has
made a most heroic resistance with his little hand
of veterans. Several weeks since he called for five
thousand men, stating in a most, solumn manner
that it would he impossible to hold Plymouth with

the Roanoke, is expected to act in concert with
other rams in the attack on Washington and New

ty-four pounders. With the aid of a few gunboats,
these rams could readily he run down, as their sea
going qualities are had. Under cover of night the
ram at Plymouth sank one of our gunboats, but ft
is not expected that she will attack any respecta
ble number of gunboats in the day time.
Newbern, April 28.—Reports from Plymouth
have been received, that our flag still floats over
oar fort iftcations in the place, though the enemy
have possession of the town and river. It is said
that Gem Wesseis retired into his fortifications
with fifteen day*' provisions. This report appears
to l>o believed.
On the arrival of more gun-boats we shall be
able to reach Plymouth and ascertain the facts.
Washington and Newborn are much stronger for
