jptflCtta infrnttc. ALTOONA, PA 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- , sponse. 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 trict ? 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. . Shehiffai.tt. —Hollidaysburg, we no tice, has two aspinints for this office, viz : ; Sheriff Port and Jas. M. Bell. Sheriff' Port is well known to the people of the county, having held the office some six years since. With Mr. Bell we have no acquaintance. Outside of Hollidaysburg we hear of two candidates, viz: Joseph i Robison, of Frankstown, and Lieut- Wm. Stokes, of Tyrone. Mr. Robison has been before the people, on a former occasion, for the nomination. He is a good man and would make a capital officer. Mr. Stokes has the bone and muscle to carry him through any crowd, and the ability to transact the business of the office cor : rectly.
