SURRENDER OP THE LITTLE
ROCK U. S. ARSENAL.
Correspondence of the N. Y. Tribune.
Jes-j-ehson- Bamiacks, Mo.,
April 8, 1861.
Seeing tn many papers to what extent our
army is loyal and true to tho country, and epe
cially, by reading an account in the St. Louis
Democrat, how a ccrtnin company of tho Uni
ted States army behaved at the surrender of the
United States arsenal at Little Rock, Arkan
sas, it would not be out of place to inform tho
public how shamefully the United States prop
erty was given up to the eeceders, and espe
cially in a State which litis been almost unaui
mous for the Union. Capt. Totten, U. S. A.,
was directed by the War Department to take
command of the aforesaid arsenal, shortly be
fore tho secession movement commenced. On
or about the 1st of February, 18C1, rumor
reached the garrison that the secessionists would
attempt to take the United States properly, but
the men of the command laughed at the idea.
In about six days afterward, a crowd of coun
try militia, mostly unarmed, assembled in the
vicinity ol the city ot iiittie hock, anu. on iuo
next day, a mob collected ar und tho Govern
or's house to tho number of about 300 men,
and demanded that ho should deliver the Uni
ted States arms and ammunition to them. Tbe
Governor applied to the Captain commanding
the arsenal, tnat he would not bo responsible if
an attack was made. Capt. T. could not sur
render the property without showing some re
sistance ; and accordingly, tho day before ho
expected the sham attack, bo ordered six guns
to bn mounted in tho lower story of the arse
nal, and two in the upper, and about 300 mus
kets to be loaded. The arsenal was fortified
strong enough to resist tbe attack of 1,000 men
of tho regular army for a good many weeks,
and. if cantain T. had shown the slightest re
sistance, the mob would never have thought of
The command of Capt. T. consisted of 90
men, with plenty of ammunition and provis
ions, while a good many of tho militia did not
have more than one round of ammunition.
And I never Baw n company of men more will
inn to drae tho cuns and fortify the place than
in that instance ; but, ut tho same time, they
feared that their toil would be for nothing, aiid
that the secessionists would get tho United
States property without firing a shot. Many
respectable citizens had an interview with tho
captain commanding, and said that it would be
a shame to give up tho arsenal to a mob col
lected by secessionists. On the next day the
wholo arsenal was surrendered to tho Governor.
But the best part of the farce happened n few
days afterward, about seven miles out of the
city of Little Hock, where the company was
camping, awaiting for the boat to tako them
oat of the State. Early in the morning the
United States troops were ordered to bold them
selves in readiness, in lull uniform, to receive
the triutnphul car conveying our braie com
mander, accompanied by the equally brave Ar
kansians. The car was ornamented with over
green and flower garlands, bearing a motto,
" We know him but to love him."
It was escorted by two com) aiies of Arkan
sas militia and n military band. After tho arri
ral of the procession in the camp, the seceders
delivered severul speeches, ami rung that Capt.
T., being a Southurn man, had dono his duty
by giving over the United Suites property to
the secessionists, together with a good many
more such complimentary remarks. Tho Uni
ted States company was perfectly disgusted with
the whole performance, but it was not in thflir
power to show it. This is the true account of
the surrender of that arsenal, and I am not the
least in doubt that, if tho officer in command
of it had half done his duty, tbe United States
property there woum no in me nanus oi me
Federal troops at tbe present time.
THE PLOT TO ASSASSINATE MR. LIN
COLN. The Albany Evening Journal of Wednesday
gives a comploto history of the conspiracy to
assinate the President during his journey from
Harrisburg to Washington. The Journal states
that some of Mr. Lincoln's friends heard of the
existence of a plot of this nature, and imme
diately employed a detective to investigate the
matter. The officer went to Baltimore and oc
cupied a period of throe weeks in tracing the
" Soon after his arrival in that city, (says the
Journal,) the detectivo discovered a combina
tion of men banded together under solemn oath
to assassinate tho President elect, Iho leader
of tho conspirators was un Italian refugee, a
barber, well known in Balimore, who assumed
the name of Orsini, as indicative of the part ho
was to perform. Tho assistants employed by
the detectivo, who, liko himself, were strangers
in Baltimore city, by assuming to bo secession
ists from Louisiana and other seceding States,
gained the confidence of somo of the conspira
tors, end were intrusted with their plans. It
was arranged, in case Mr. Lincoln should pass
safely over the railroad to Baltimore, that the
conspirators should minglo with the crowd
which might surround bis carriage, and, by pro
tending to be his friends, be enabled to ap
proach his person, when, upon n signal from
their leader, somo of them would shoot at Mr.
Lincoln witji their p'stols, and others would
throw into his carriage hand grenades filled
with detonating powder, similar to those used
in tho attempted assassination of tho Emperor,
Louis Napoleon. It was intended that In the
confusion hich should result from this attick,
the assailants should escape to a vessel which
was waiting in tho harbor to rcceivo them, and
be carried to Mobile, in the seceding Stata of
A Gektlehan Bons and Bred. -The Mo

will cry, "that's so," with a hearty good will.

FOREIGN NEWS AND GOSSIP.
PllOFOSKD ExPLOBINO EXPEDITION TO CniKA
An expedition, partly scientific, partly sporting,
is about to strike through a nearly unknown
conntry in Central Asia, making, in fact, an
uuuumj iu vcmim aDia, iuhiviuij, m luit, at.
overland journey from Shanghai to Simla, in
the Himalayas. It is composed of two or three
military ana civil scientific celebrities. One of
the party has already gained renown in North

sense of tho term, as well as a clever ornitholo
gist. Another enjoys a well-deserved fame as
a daring sportsman, who has already penetrated
into Western Thibet, through the Himalayas.
Ruiks or tue Tower or Babel. The French
Consul at Mosul recently sent home an account
of a discovery so astounding as to render the
photographio views and vouchers that accom
panied it necessary as confirmations of its truth.
The discovery was that of the ruins of tho Tower
of Babel, ana tho photographs exhibited the re

structure; the bricks cemented with bitumen,
and bearing inscriptions upon them, which,
when deciphered, aro expected to confirm tbe
accounts of Scripture.

an artist employed to restore a picturo in the
poet's birthplace, discovered that what appeared
to be the likeness of a man bearded liko a
"pard" proved, on close inspection, and as the
work developed, to be the portrait of tho great
genius of the dramatic world.

DR. SCHENCK, the Lung Doctor. The Pro
prietor of SCHENOK'S PULMONIC SY-
ItUP. the inventor 0! SUHUNUK'S UESt'lltUME-
TEH, the only Instrument that can to a certainty!
detect the slightest murmur or tho respiratory
This is of great importance to Dr. SCHENCK,
to know the exact condition tf the lungs, whether
it Is Tuberculous, Pulmonary, Bronchial, Pleu
ritic, or Dyspeptic Consumption, and whether it
is both lungs or only one that are diseased.
It requires constant and long practice to be
come familiar with every sound or rattling of a
diseasrd bronchial tube. Patients come to Dr.
SCHENCK to get examined that have been ex
amined by their family physician, who told them
that their lungs were almost gone ; when, by a
close e-amlnallon with tbe Resplrometer, It is
often found that It is an affection of the bron
chial tube, and, by getting a healthy action of
the liver and tone to the stomach, tbe sunercr is
soon restored to health. Sometimes medicine
that will stop a cough is certain death to the pa
tient. It locks up tbe liver, Btops tho circulation
of the blood: hemorrhage follows, and. in fact,
stopping tho action of the very organs that
caused the cough.
Liver complaints and Dyspepsia are the causes
of two-thirds of tho cases of Consumption. Per
sons are at this time complaining uith dull pain
in the side, bowels Bometimes costive nni some
times too loose, tongue coated, pain in the shoul
der blade, fceliug sometimes very restless, and at
other times drowsy ; everything that Is eaten lies
heavy on the stomach ; nudity, belchtog up
wind. Hundreds aro complaining at this time
iu this way. Let them take a heavy cold, aud,
before they get rid ot it, then another, then is
lh time to know nbat to do, then is the time to
go to Dr. SCHENCK und get your lungs exam
ined, then Is the time to know wh.it cough med
icine to take. Stop that cough sudden, and then
the lungs, liver, aud stomach, are all put Into an
Inactive state, and, before tho patient is aware
ot his situation, tbe lungs are a mass 01 sores,
and deith must soon follow.
SCHENCK'S " PULMONIC SYRUP" is an ex
pectoiaut which does not contain nny opium,
nor anything calculated to check a cough sud
denly, but, when assisted by the SEAWEED
TONIU, to improve the tone of the stomach, nnd
restore a heolihv action of the digestive organs,
with the MANDRAKE PILLS, to bring about a
healthy action of the liver. When these are ta
ken together, or as indicated, they aie sure to
bring the constitution Lack to a healthy state
when atlected by any 01 me anove uueabes. ur.
SCHENCK believes that too much cannot be said
in tavor of the curathe powers of the MAN
DRAKE PILLS. Their action Is peculiar, but
certain, in ull cases of torpid bowels or diseased
liver, which is too frequently the primary cause
of a broken-down condition of the whole system,
nnd often passes under the name of CONSUMP
TION, when that dlrcase doos not eil.t nt all, or
if It does, is readily curable by a proper atten
tion to restoring a healthy actlou of the stomach,
liver, and other functions, whose duty it is to
eliminnte and carry off the unhealthy deposits
which clog and render sluggish the wheels of the
Schenck's Pulmonic Syrup will prolong lifo
sometimes several months, "by keeping the bron
chial tubes free fioru the putrid mutter which
Impedes their functions, when the lungs are too
far gone to cure There Is no medicine that can
euro Consumption when both lungs are much
diseased, and Dr. Schenck would rather overy
one would know their true condition before ta
king his medicine.
He treats no diseases but those of the Lungs,
Liver, and Stomach, and makes no churges lor
advice, or examining lungs in tue oruinary way,
or as nhvslcians generally do ; but for a thorough
examination with the Id spirometer he charges
three dollars, nnd wlbhes every one, rich or poor,
that bus a Cough, l'aln In the Blue or onoumer
blade, troubled with Cotiveness or Diarrbcca,
Sallow Complexion, Loss of Appetite, Low Spir
its, Uestlessuess at Itixht, or any omer uiscase
leajlng to Consumption, to call ou him as above
and get bis advice
Often, a twenty-fite ceut box of SCHENCK'S
