Hon. H. B. Swoope.
- The following article from the Altoona
(Democratic) Sun, relating to the efficiency
oi the present U. S. District Attorney iu
prosecuting offenders aga'mst the laws, ex
presses our views so fully, that we transfer
it entire to our columns :
When the aiioiu went of this gentleman
as U. S. Attorney for the Western District
wis first announced we took occasion to com
mend the selection, and among other things
remarked that in the disehargo of his otii
cial duties it would be found that he was no
respector of persons when it came to dealing
with law-breakers; that rich aod poor would
fare alike with him ; and that, active parti
san as he is, any attempt of a criminal to
shield himself from punishment by pleading
services rendered to his party, would be fu
tile. Mr. Swoope has now held his office
for more than a year, sending up more in
dictment, trying more cases, convicting more
criminals, smd transacting more business in
that Court than all his predecessors for the
last twenty years combined. And we are
glad to announce that an examination of the
records show that our predictions have'ieen
verified in every particular. Much of the
time of this Court has been taken up with
prosecutions of art apparently trifling char
acter, such js t-hat of distillers, brewers,
lager beer, cigar and tobacco venders, for
failure to comply with the internal revenue
laws, in omitting proper stamps, or to pay
special tax, or something of that sort
which were all violations of law. and as the
law officer of the Government Mr. Swoope
but discharged his duty in prosecuting them
as fast as they were brought before him in
official form. Naturally enough this has
made him the victim ol censnre in certain
quarters; but with how much justice good
citizens of common sonsejyill have no trw
ble to decide. And just now t;uito an effort
: . : - i.. . i . .1: :...-,
fim i the wlAern nart ,f h. StatT At
the recent term of this Court at Pittsburgh,
several lawyers, having been returaed to the
District Attorney, indictments against lliem
lor failure to pay the special tax as provided
by law. were laid before the grand jury and
true bills found in each case. On trial most
of them plead guilty, and the others tried
and convicted, and all, except one, discharg
ed on the payment of a slight tine, costs,
&e. The exception was that of S. D. Roth
ermal, a member of the bar of Pittsburgh,
who, upou being brought before the Court
on Friday last, (March 31,) was sentenced
to pay the usual penalty, costs, &c. .amount
ing in all to forty-three dollars, and lulling
to comply with the sentence was sent to jail.
And this is the foundation of the attempted
raid upon Mr. Swoope. That it will find
nosympathizorsamong sensible people there
can be no doubt. On the contiary. all sen
sible people must commend him tor it. A
poor ignorant creature is brought up before
the Court and fined fifty or a hundred, or
perhaps a thousand dollars for failure to
comply with some particular provision of
the .-tamp law, and no person beyond the
victim and his lauiily is disturbed in the
least. Lawyers, however, cannot plead ig
norance, and when convicted of violating
the law they, above all other men, are the
least entitled to svmpathy. If the friends
of the lawyers have complaints to make
they should complain t.-f tho law, not or
those whose sworn duty it is to execute the
If Mr. Swonpe's example was more gen
erally followed it would bo much to the ben
etii of the public. Nothing i." more com
mon than the belief that the man with plen
ty oi' money, or surrounded with influential
friends, can escape the penalties of violated
law with impunity. That there isabuudant
reason for such widespread belief is hut too
apparent. There are but few Courts in the
Commonwealth whose proceedings do not
bear the clearest evidence of this fact, la
mentable as it is ; aud if a new start shall
be made, after the manner inniiirtirated by
the Attorney for the Western I'istriet, and
all violators of the law equally and certainlv
punished when legally convicted, without
regard to their sooi il standing, good citizens
will not fail to rejoice and render full credit
to the officer to whom it is due.
A ''Flanking" Scheme.
One of our exchanges says that the de
termination of the General Government to

Congressmen or oth.T national officers are
chosen, has naturally created dismay in the

said to be certain, Tammany can continue
to control the State Ouicors, and elect what
ever majority iu the Legislature is deemed
necessary, thus insuring a lieuiocratic Uui
ted States Senator to succeed Mr. Coukling,
whose term expires in 1 873. The lie rah I,
remarking upon this bi !, admits that "the
last election we had und :r Federal supervis
ion was unusually fair and orderly," and
adds, "this change of the election time will
involve a considerable extra outlay that will
not find a satisfactory return iu the absence
of Federal supervisors."
Contested Elections. A cctemporary
says : "We hope that the next Congress will
introduce a reform in the matter of allowing
money to contestants to seats in that body
as lavishly as has been done. The present
Congrrss has awarded to contestants not less
than $77,050. uot one of whom had the
shadow of a title to the seat he claimed.
B-.sldes the direct sum above, there was the
indirect one of $20,415 to witnesses, making
a total of $104,374 passing to parties ho
had no legal claims to a dollar. This vic
ious liberality tends to encourage contest
ants, and, if persisted in, will annually bring
the harpies to Washington with a claim to
a seat, to be allowed a liberal sum from the
Treasury. Such leaks must be stopped.

still hei situation between the liulf of Mexico
and the Atlantio ocean is such that she is swept
alttrnately by the winds of the Eastern and Wes

which prevail in other Southern States; and thus
it happens that by tho joint influence of latitude
and peculiar location, she is relieved, on the one
band, from the rigors of the Winter climate of
tbe Northern and Middle States, and on the oth

the Southern States, but in tha summer time the
Northern States are characterized.
Settlers have not the hardships to undergo that
have been the lot of the pioneers who opened up
and developed our harsh Northern latitudes. The
