WEDNESDAY, MAY 4, 1864.
The Hollidayaburg Register,—Again,
i The long leader in the last Register, in
reply to our strictures upon the repeated
unwarrantable and unprovoked assaults
upon Mr. Hall, is scarcely worthy of no
tice. Twice, at least, in long and labored
articles, had he made Mr. Hall his target.
For all this, no provocation had been
given ; and, in answer to it, nothing had
published, except a simple narrative
of facts, over the signatures of Captain
Lloyd. Mr. Ely and Mr. Hall himself, in
relation to the gratuitous and silly charges
respecting the enrollment, and the remo
val of Col. Piper, (which are now entirely
abandoned) and in which narrative, there
was not, as these papers wtU still attest, a
single harsh expression. When the plain
tide of truth had shamed even the Editor
of the Register from persistence in his
silly and absurd libels, he was not wil
ling tb abandon the object 6f his venom ;
jbut without any provocation, or offering
any evidence to sustain him, he thrust forth
the charge of personal dishonesty, or
wan) of PEESOSAL “ intkghitt” ; and af
fects now to be surpri that his libels
ahould not be passed unnoticed. He should
Timber that there isa point beyond which
forbearance ceases to be a virtue, and that
any one must, indeed, be friendless, who
has no Mend to say a -word in his defence,
: when assailed and slandered. Mr. Dean
is not, surely, so unreasonable as to sup
■ pose that he may be allowed to bray on
i calumny and falsehood, week .after week,
. with entire impunity. Nor, when he
does all this to injure his neighbor, should
he feel aggrieved at having it hinted that
: it is not exactly consistent with his ckris
| tian profession ; or with what might rea
sonably be expected of one who possesses
any of the qualities of a man or gentle
; man ; and when, especially, he is so
unscrupulous as to assert, What it is impos
; sible for any one to believe, that “towards
Mr. Wall personally he does not intertain
a single unkind feeling!” He may not
; like our adjectives, but he must excuse
: us for calling things by what we unedr
stand to be their right names.
There are but a few things in this last
effusion which we deem at all worthy of
k notice. The article is not, certainly, cal
culated to excite resentment; its weakness,
i and its inconsistency, and its whining,
‘ threatening, coaxing} and piteous tone
: juitiy claims commiseration rather. He
him not, however, the manliness to retract;
his falsehoods, or the; shrewdness, to con-,
i ceal his malignity. . When he deliber-’
ptely charged Mr. Hall with dishonesty, we
challenged him to point out how, or where
p r when, Mr. Ball had ever made a dollar
i dirhir^J ; and how does he undertake
! to do it? He says be did not say that
Mr F«ll was worth “forty or sixty
tjuinianJ dollars, 7 ’, but that he was
worth “ forty to sixty thousand dol
; tarsi” He says, too, “we know he is
; worth forty thousand from the public
i Rpcords of the Comity, which can be ex
tyninad by any one, and other evidence as.
; incontestable.” We)!, “Records cannot
I lie 5 ” but since the Records do not show,
as ire are assured, oyer ten thousand, we
are pained to conclude that Mr ■ Dean,
(who iff familiar with the Records) most
lie. To our challenge he says further, as
i evidence of what he had asserted, “we
' pnswer in the Senate when be was Sena
t(p, by receiving money other than his
—in ry fpr services.”; And we pronounce
a deliberate falsehood, and call for the
;• proof. We are not disposed, here to let
Mr Dean skulk under vague assertions;
; MSB demand the proof and shall await his re-
He asserts that “Mr. Hall received for
services in and about the passage” of two
Bills, certain fees, without stating cases, or
.inning persons. He admits that these Bills
should have passed , and that Mr. Hall did
not do wrong in voting for them. Will he
assert that Mr. Ball receiveid a penny for i
advocating or x voting for either of these
Bills? We call again for the facts; Or
will he assert that one who has been care
' fid in his business, and prosperous, is, there*
fore, dishonest? We want to know;
But he reiterates his charge that Mr.
Hall violated his pledge in voting for the
repeal of the Tonage Tax. We overlook
ed ins casuistry in his first article. He
seems now to be in some doubt whether it
was right or wrong. He is careful to re*'
strict his charge to the pointthat Mr. Hall
violated his pledge. We pronounce it a
falsehood,, and demand the proof.
Next comes a repetition of the contempt
ible charge that Mr. Hall is “not true to
the Union partyand “that a few days
before the election in 1862, he held a con
ference with leading copperheads in bis of
fice in Altoona, in which a positive, ar
rangement was made that Mr. McAllister
.and his friemls should support him,/. Mr.
Hall, for the State Senate, while he, Mr.
Hall, and his friends would support Mr.
McAllister for Congress.” This is pro
nounced a:falsehood and alibel. The only
evidence he gives, is astatement of the vote
of Huston Township/ A reference to the
vote for Congress in 1860, between the
same gentlemen,— Mr. Blair and Mr. Mc-
Allister, —will show ihat the latter had
then a larger majority in that township.
Will Mr. Dean explain this, when, in an
other article, he undertake to tell us, (What
he seems to have forgotten) whether Hunt
ingdon County is in this Senatorial : Dis
He next complains, and makes it his chief
complaint, for he says “that’s just what’s
the matter,” that Mr. Hall >‘serves his
friends too yell.” We are glad to know
that people! generally appreciate acts of
friendship, if Mr. Dean cannot; nor are we
willing to admil that it is criminal to do
so. , Mr. Dean may think otherwise;
He now says, however, “in the discus
sion ofthis question, we have no desire to
do the least injustice to Mr. Hall.” ■ “We
would not needlessly wound his feelings or
those of his friends.” He, evert-, as a.palvo,
-adds a friendly compliment to Mr. Hall.
He had very kindly said before, “towards
Mr. Hall, personally, we do not entertain
a single unkind feelling!” We have read
of the Ostrich hiding its head in the sand,
and fancying its large body concealed; and,
the fable of the ass that drew on the
skin of a lion to palm himself off for the
noble animal. . We accord to Mr. Dean
the genius and sincerity of both.
We add, that we have been induced to
notice these editorial articles of the Reg
ister, in defence of a friend, who has-.never,
so-far as we know, done anything to pro
voke these repeated and malignant assaults
upon him, or done anything to injure his
unscrupulous maligners and persecutors.
The 10-40 Five Per Cent, Loan.
In another column will be found an advertise
ment giving Information where and how the bonds
of the 10-40 five per cent, loan may be obtained..
It is the duty of every man possessed of means to
uphold the government which secures him in the
possession of his wealth and gives him sb many
opportunities for increasing it. These investments
are safe. Already the bonds of jjie 5r20 loan
which have all been taken, are above par, and
although the 10-40 loan may not be ranked with
the first, they will not depreciate m value.
Much is now being said and written in. refere
ence to our national debt—the croakers ; endeav
oring to make the people believe, we are being
ruined—that debt will soon swallow up all our
property. These is much misapprehension on this
point, and when the truth is stated, there are those
who, for base purposes, seek to mistify an(| pervert
it. Let ns look, at the country and its resources,
as set before ns by the census returns of various
years. It appears from the census; returns, that
the increase in thfe value of real and personal pro
perty in the United States from 1840 to 1.850, was
from three thousand seven hundred and sixty Tour
millions ($3,764,000,000) in 1840 to six thousand
one hundred and seventy-four millions ($6,174,
000,000) in 1850, or 64 percent. The next decade
shows a still greater advance in general prosperity
and riches. For in that period, the yield of our
gold mines, the extension of onr rasiroad system
and consequent opening of new fields for agricul
ture, our large immigration, and the stimnlusgiven
to every branch of manufactures and die mechanic
arts raised the national wealth from six thousand
one hundred and seventy-four millions; ($6,174,
000,000) in 1860 to the enormous aggregate of
fourteen thousand one hundred and eighty-three
millions.($14,183,000,000) in 1860, or 127 per
cent, of which ten thousand seven hundred and
sixteen millions ($1Q,716,000,000) was owed in the
loyal States . Is there any good reason to believe
that we shall not continue to prosper as we have
done—(except from the chances of war, which can
only modify and not change the character of the
answer to the question,)—that the nation will not
continue to nearly, if not quite, double its wealth
every ten years for several decades to cope ? We
have bnt just beyun to work our gold mines, and’
i the vast body of other mineral wealth is still un
developed. We have fertile lands enough for an
empire, that the plow has never touched, and it is
i only in this generation that science and art have
, fairly begun to open the doors, and show the way
towards our future greatness. !
But experience of what others have* done will
best tell fts what we may rightfully expect to do.
Let ,us compare our position with that of great
Great Britinn during one of.the gloomiest periods
of her financial history. At the end of her great
wars .in 1816, her wealth was estimated at ten
thousand four hundred millions (10,400,000,000)
and her national debt of that time was Tour thou
sand three hundred millions (4,300,000,000) or
more than 41 per cent, of her entire property. In
1861 her property was stated at thirty-one thousand
five hundred, millions (31,500,000,000) while her
debt was three thousand eight hundred and ninety
millions (3,890,000,000) or was a charge on the
property of the country of only about 12J per cent.
It needs no argument to show that the weight of
the burden of this debt is now, but one third what
it was when contracted.
We do not wish to deceive ourselves on, either
side of this question. Debt is always bad enough
but we should look the facts squarely in the face,
and accept whatever deductions we have aright to
draw, from them as truth. In spite of the war,
we believe the Northern States are as rich to-day
as they were three years ago. Such o. demand for
labor was never before known, and never before
was it so well paid. War detroys, hut pur hand of
industry has never for a moment ceased to create,
and the creation will more than balance the des
truction. Laige as oar loses of brave and gallant
men have been, the population of the country has
steadily increased ; and unless some scourge such
as never visited a nation should come upon us, —
unless we should he utterly destroyed or dismem
bered and broken to pieces by yielding to this de
mon of secession,—there is no human power that
can arrest onr continued progress and development.
All wars have ended as wiU,oars. Let us hope that
it mhy be soon; but when it is ended, and trium
phantly as it must be, this country is bound to take
a position in population, wealth, and: vigor that
will make its debt so small in proportion to its
wealth that the most timid man will laugh at the
fear that may have once ovcr-clonded his vision.
