There was a very lively time at the
polls Wednesday. Out of a thousand
registered voters, onlv four hundred or
so put in an appearance. The people of
color made a bold enort to poll their
strength. Ed. Shaw and several other
people of opacity were present, working
as well as they could, and no doubt
would have done well but for the energy
ana pugnacity of persons of different
views, who were there too. At noon
blood became hot, a blow was struck
here iiid there, opprobrious epithets
were used, a geueral storm began to
blow, and the polling place was a scene
of dire agitation and sore dismay. All
hands were preparing to take a part. A
dialsiiical row seemed inevitable, aud
would !;.ive occurred but for the stern
anil uncompromising faces of the po
lice atid the fierce aspect of their batons.
They quelled the incipient riot and pro
On Saturday night, the eighteenth
instant, a most outrageous robbery was
committed at Teriene, Bolivar county.
Mississippi, by one illiam Reynolds,
colored, upon a Mr. Wood, late a resi
dent of Pine Bluff, Arkansas. Mr.
Womd was waiting at this place for a
boat to go up the river, and unfortu
nately became somewhat "enthused''
from taking on a little too much of the
ardent. J-eeling very rich, as most
men io while under that influence, he
made a most foolish and unfortunate
display of his wealth, by counting out
his money, to the amount of one thou
sand dollars, " to make people sick," as
he called it. I he consequence was
that nliout dark, while on his wav from
one drinking-saloon to another, he was
made very sick by the said illiam
knocking him down with a club and
relieving him of his wealth. "A fool
and bis money soon parts, applies in
this case. The robber made his escape
to Arkansas, but owing to the geutle
matil.y conduct of Mr. Green Cumby, to
whotn the citizens of Teriene feel much
indel'ivd, be was brought back and
turned over to the projier authorities.
1 -live feeling is given to vagaries
in its manifestations. Besides this tru
ism, it must be held in strict remem
brance that when a man is drunk he's
as great as a King; and these will help
to explain the conduct of two boys from
the country, who went cavorting about
the city W ednesday, in the gavest style
of abandon. One of them bought fifteen
cents worth of small applee, which he
carried in his hat as he went along the
street , with a high head, flowing locks
and a smiling face. The two compan
ions fished up the apples from the
depths of the hat, according as they
deeirt d, and munched tbem between
their grinders with evident gusto.
They were happy ! Ah ! bow few-
people iu this world experience the
supreme bliss that visited the unso
phisticated souls of those young mea of
twenty-seven, as they wabbled along
the sidewalks of Memphis, running
afoul of a pile of boxes now, and pres
ently bobbing up against a lamp-post,
and then again treading on someDody's
toes. ..r getting tangled up in a lady's
dress. che ing apples all the time and
talking loud and big. Their ecatacy
grew greater at every step until it was
too strong for them to reason, and then
they commenced shieing their apples in
all directions. One of the little missives
struck a street-ear window and went
clear through. The driver did not like
that, and showed his displeasure. The
happy country boys jumped on board
the car and were proceeding to " lick "
the driver, when they were arreeted.
Yesterday morning the Rex-order fined

There are marvelous nieu now shaping
public opinion and local laws in Arkan
sas. There are men cf great force, of
infinite adroitness, of boundless ambi
tion. One cannot help admiring a
frank, brave, fearless adventurer in
politics, more than he can deny ad
miration of the generous, reckless
bandit. Rut the worst of Arkansas
politicians lose much of that hid
eousness which they owe mainly to
distorted media of newspaper prejudice
through which the world abroad has
contemplated their peculiarities. In
any event, if this be not true, their
harsh feature) and repulsive aspects be
come infinitely leas offensive when one
sees for himself and witnesses struggles
for power among these original men.
They play the boldest games, incur the
greatest hazards, expend money lavish
ly, resort to most desperate expedients,
make aud unmake members of the Leg
islatuie, name or exclude members at
will, designate the officers of the law
making power, and govern Arkansas by
sheer force of will and intellect, as
if Heaveu-annointed masters of
the hapless State. These are the sim
ple facta, and one caunot help having
reels', i lor the daring and genius tu
achieves such tasks. Some of these
leading Arkansas politician-! are most
honorable and trustworthy, aud have
been grievously wronged, and others,
perhaps, are unscrupulous scoundrels.
But these have sway to greater or less
extent, a society is now corrupted, in
all the States, and Arkansas may be
subjected to the domination of men no
woi-e than they who reign at other
Southern capitals. i hese reflections
can. of course, have no reference to the
W. (.'. Falkner, an aged and respected
citizen of Little Rock, hag world-wide
fane- as the "Arkansas Traveler. He
born in Scott county, Kentucky, on
the thirty-first of March, 1904. His
father was Nioholas Kaikner, a Vir
ginian, who moved to "tne uarK auu
blood v ground'' in 1790. His mother
was .Miss Sallie Cropper, of Snow Hill,
Colonel Falkner, or "Sandy," as he is
commonly called, came to Arkansas in
January, 1831, and was thenceforth a
platit-r". In 183 he became acquainted
with Waller Wright, the original squat
ter of the song and story known as the
Arkansas Traveler.'' Wright, on the
then Irontier, lived with an Indian wife.
He hud heard in the "settlements" parts
of s . ral tunes. These he conjoined,
aud ace impanied with hum-drum words.
Color . I Falkner added these together
and Liade the tune and concurrent story
know ti as the "Arkansas Traveler."
Colonel Falkner is most kindly gener
ous and of amiable disposition. He is
most impulsive and of strong personal
and local attachments. He entered the
Confederate army and served with dis
tinction as Colonel of a famous Arkan
sas regiment. He may be seen every
dav :-.'out the streets of .Little Kock,
where he indulges his excellent taste for
music aud story-telling.
UI EDITOR AND POLITICIAN.
Edwin Bancroft was born in West
Stock oridge, Massachusetts, February
18, 18 a He is of the same stock as the
great historian, the present Minister to
ti-.- He was left an orphan at the
age i i three years, and went to live with
his gt jiidfather, in Western .New lork
In 1851 he went to Illinois, for tour
years iie was at school in Knox College,
working on a farm for his board and
payimr his own way in that excellent
institution. In 1858 he went into the
Oou-ias and Lincoln campaign, and
made the canvass in the interest of Mr.
Douglas. In May, 1861, he enlisted as a
private in layiors famous Lhicago bat
tery. He followed General Grant in all
his (."cat campaigns of the West, and
was promoted tor distinguished gaJiant
ry a: icksburg. ant! was assigned to
the command of colored troops when
mustered into the service. While at
Helena, Arkansas, he organized a light
battel y of colored troops, which
was , r.,u,iuuced by Inspector-General
Murray and General Thomas
the I' -t drilled and equipped in the ser
vice. In 1865 he was mustered out of
service, and married and settled at De
valls Bluff, ou While river. During
the process of political reconstruction in
Arkansas he espoused the cause of the
Republican party, and published the
H'ic River Journal under his mau-
ageu'. it the ablest Kepublican paper in
the state. He was eminently conserva
tive in his views, and was the first man
in the I uited States, it is said, who, in
a regular convention, nominated Grant
for Dbe Presidency. The Arkansas State
Couveution was the first held, and he
offered the resolution instructing the
deb g les to vote for Grant, at Chicago.
He i :isrinated the treaty with Brooks
which made Clayton Governor of Ar
kans: s. In 187(1, he was an aspirant for
Cougre s, aud was defeated in conven
tion bv Judge Hanks. He was the
friend of McDonald in the Senatorial
eonte-t with Clayton. He started the
Liberal movement in 1869, and was th
leader iu gettiug up a delegation to Cin
cinnati. He made the canvass of the
First ( 'ongressioiial district in behalf of
the Lnieral movement, and published a
newspaper in Little 14t-k in that inter
est. I luring the recent Senatorial con
test, which resulted in the election of
Colon i 1 Dorsey, he was one of the
stauuehest supiKjrters of Dorsey, as he
was a speaker and writer in behalf of
the hapless Greeley.
Bancroft is universally well esteemed.
He is generous to a fault, and full of
kindly impulses. There is no guile in
Bancroft and if he should ever wander
away from his State, where his face is
familiar in every' uut and hovel and
abode of opulence, he may be recog
nized by his bald, red pate, his huge
bead and laughing eyes, and ruddy
cheeks aud protruding abdoinen. He is
rather corpulent aud short withal, and
wears a very short coat and is com
monly adorued with a smashed, broad
brimmed hat from beneath which exude
the s .ft, ruddy, sunny ringlets of the
charming, smiling Itancrott. He is
popular and potent at the capital, aud
Mr. Dorsey is indebted to Bancroft more
than any other one man for his seat iu
the I 'nitexl States Senate.

The following communication was
made in strict confidence and friendship
about eleven o'clock last night, while
the local was toasting his shins in front
of the fire, up-stairs, in the office. The
t , . I 1 1 , , , u rif if iu ... . SfinMt Qlwl V i -
dently fair, that the rational mind of
the local was captivated by it, and con
cluded to publish the same. The hard
lot of those spirits is pitiable:
Mr. Local of the Appeal You
enjoy an enviable reputation all through
spiritdom, as well as along Main street,
for being a great lover of justice and an
uncompromising enemy of all hum
bug. Hence it is you are troubled with
this visit and this communication.
There are two dozen of us here, boys
and girls, iu a line stretching from the
back of your chair to the top of the
stairway, outside the door. We are a
delegation from a coterie of about ten
million spirits, that belong to the same
family. Some of us are dead twenty
seven hundred years, and others have
beeu iu spirit-land only seven days. We
have been sent to you to protest against
the unfeeling ways of man
kind in these later days. Those
of us who are fortunately out
of the flesh only a hundred years enjoy
comparative repose and a certain philo
sophic ease that is quite agreeable,
while we of recent dissolution are af
flicted beyond endurance by our friends
on earth. I myself left the tlesh very
reluctantly, it is true, with a certain
susceptibility to cold and heat, anil it
irks me much to be summoned away
from my first sphere, where lam learn
ing Ide A a t"s ot everla-suut: psy

and that fellow Foster, whenever any of
my living relations choose to calf for
me. .Soto voce Confound my living

two dozen boys and trirlfl here have l?en
afflicted in the same way for the last
year or two, particularly. It seems as
though mankind was beeoruiug soft in
the brain. Common prcptiety ought to
suggest to them the decency and de
corum of letting us alone. lhey
would feel indignant were any-
rude person to disturb our sleeping
mouldering clay in the grave. They
would be apt to fight and curse and go
to law if our bodies were hawked about
and our skeletons exhibited at shows, at
fairs and at race-tracks for money lv
mountebanks. Why do they allow
mountebanks to hawk our souls about
aud exhibit them formonev? Mr. Local
just think of it in the gravity of your
own sensible profundity. A pallrey at
the circus or an organ-grinder's monkey
is treated with more consideration. Mr.
Foster wants to make five dollars, and
here comes a long pull at the bell from
the Overton Hotel to the sphere we in
habit and out we have to trot from our
comfortable winter-uuarters and hurry-
along through strata of freezing air and
realms of snow and belts of storm, until
we stand at his elbow ready to do his
bidding that he may make five dollars
and some of our relations may have a
morbid curiosity gratified. Is it fair, is
it just, is it zentlemanly? The
hor?e gets his oats and thej
swine his swill for doing service
to man. Even the dog, mongrel, man
srv "purp,'' or useless hound as he may
be. Eets his bone for pleasine his master,
but we eet nothing. There is one deli
cate lad among us who has been dead
but three months, and during that time
his loving father called for him five
hundred times, while his aunt, who
lives five thousand miles away from his
father, called for him three thousand
times. The aunt is now asleep, and the
father's medium is uead-druuk; hence
this respite. The boy is nearly worried
to death again by the idiotic importu
nities of his relatives. Just at the mo
ment when we are all comfortably seat
ed round a circle of our own, in our
winter-uuarters, up in our primary
sphere, getting off our lessons in meta
physics, up raps a message! and the
whole business must be dropped; half a
dozen of us, perhaps, have to start out
on a long journey earthward, in
the worst of weather, to as
sist at a seance, where the most
-ulgar sort of tobacco-chewers, wine-
bibers, swearers and chamberers are
congregated, and thus we are compelled
to suffer witnout compensation. Mr.
Local, I leave it to you; is it not clearly
agaiust all principles of justice? Would
not any fair-minded judge, like FlippiD,
who hates humbug, too like yourself
lecide that conduct of that sort on the
part of hlollis and foster is unpardon
able'? It is agaiust the laws of good
society. It is ungentlemanly, and it is
eminently unchristian. It is taught in
the classics, that T just got into when
the inexorable mandate came, "Of the
dead say nothing but what is good."
Mr. Local, allow me to add to that, as
useful in these days of gross selfishness
and spiritual darkness, "To the dead do
uothing but what is just" for we have
rights as well as you, aud though we
may la? afflicted for a time by unthink
ing people, the day of reckoning will
come, aud those who afflict us will have
to pay the penalty. You know, Mr. Lo
cal, there is justice in the spberes.and the
system of compensations will be as
riidly carried out in the spirit as in the
materia world. "With desolation is
the whole world made desolate because
men will not think iu their hearts."
Mr. Local, tell these people that our long
journeys will have to be acx-ouuted for,
yea, every h nrbreadth motion, and
every scintillation of intelligence must
have a compensation somehow. I ell
them to be wise in time and to take
lessons from the thiugs that lie around
them. Let a man fire off a rifle perpen
dicularly in the ail and the ball will re
turn upon his bead with the same force
that it was discharged trom the mouth
of the piece, and it will kill him rigid
compensation and equilibrium the
corelatiou and constancy of natural
forces. Here iu this spirit world the
laws are equally fixed. Ten ton of
purgatorial coal ou the heud of him who
summons a spirit from his sphere to do
a foolish thing! Tell the people to be
wise and just. Let these spirits
show us the same consideration that
Leubrie shows his ass compensate
him with oats though he doeth
nothing but only stand aud wait. This
animal reminds us all, two dozen boys
aud girls from the spirit land, to tell
you that Mardi Gras is now approach
ing, and that jolly festival will serve as
a sort of excuse lor taking the minds of
the troubled and wretched soft-brained
spiritists from the sphere above. Let
them follow Momus, and laugh for a
season, aud leave us in pece. Good
bye. There was a soli rustle as of the sound
of dried gossamer in the sunshiue, a
gentle flash of pale blue light, aud the
local was alone. Moreover, the fire had
nearly burned the toes of his boots.
Raising up his eyes he saw Detective
Craumer standing beside him, big with
Mr. Bishop and bis supports gave War
Cloud at the Grand Operahouae last
night in a very creditable manner,
though not to so large an audience as
the merits of the performance deserved.
This is the fashionable night at the
Grand Operahonse, and Mr. BUhop
will take a benefit. War Cloud will be
repeated, and a large audience may be
expected. There will lie a matinee to
morrow. The I'beausr.
What is .-ailed the horse opera at the
theater gets along very well. A circus
under gaslight and surrounded by all
the splendors of a theater, shows to five
times more advantage than under can
vass in the garish light of day. The
beauty of a circus cannot be seen proper
ly except in a theater sucn as the New
Memphis. The charm of bare
back riding is hightened by
the surroundings, and what the
clown does appears twice as funny and
twice as pleasing, with the tinsel of the
stage to set it off. Hereafter the people
will clamor for stage performances, and
eschew the arena in toto. A neat ring,
well carpeted and cleanly surrounded on
all sides with attractive scenery, adds
immensely to a circus. The perform
ances of the barebacked rider become
pleasing instead of fearful; and the
teats of the wonderful wire-walker is a
thing to be enjoyed. By the way
there is an astonishing wire-walker at-
utcueu to noDiuson s circus. All who
delight in tremendous things ought to
see this performer. The day following
the first performances ot Robinson's
troupe at the Theater, we gave a brief
uouce oi an cne principal leatures. We
have only to add that the show becomes
ripe and mellow as it goes along, and
that the house was not uncomfortably
crowded last night. There Is to be a
matinee to morrow.
imm, Hie Comedian.
Of this great artist, who, for over
twenty years, has held a high place in
the front rank among comedians of the
better class, the St. Louis Globe of Sun
day thus discourses: "John E. Owens,
whose 'Solon Shingle,' 'Dr. Pangioss,'
'Caleb Plummer,' and 'Joshua But
terby' are so well known and appreci
ated both in America and in Great
Brit u u. was born in Ijverpool, Eng
land, in 1823, and is of Welsh parent
age. He was brought to the Cnited
States when hut three years of age by
his parents, who first settled in Balti
more, Maryland. His career commenced
under the management of William E.
Burton, at the National Theater. Phila
delphia, where he hail been raised.
Iu 184 he reappeared in that
city at the Museum as 'Jack Hum
phreys' in Turning the Tables, for the
oeueni or Mr. uavid f. Bowers. In
1849-0 he became manager of the
Baltimore Museum, and in ISo-' John
Brougham induced him to inaugurate
wiui nis performances tsrcugtiam's Ly
ceum, afterward the Broadway Theater,
New York. In June, 1852, Owens went
to Europe, and, becoming a Conti
nental tourist, ascended Mont Blanc,
as Albert Smith had done, and, like
the Knglish author, gave a series
of Mont Blanc entertainments, but
in this country. In 1854 he
managed the Charles Street Theater,
Baltimore. He was a member of Pla
cide's New Orleans Varieties Company,
one of the 1 est known to dramatic an
nals, and in the subsequent season, 1859,
he liecame manager of that theater and
engaged one of the most talented com
panies that could be obtained. The Va
rieties! It numbered in the stock,
Owens, Sothern, George Jordan, Hol

In August, 1S64, Owens opened at Wal

and opened at the Adelphi, London, as
" Solon Shingle." The critics, among

lou limes, were astonished that Ameri
ca could produce such a comedian
Returning to America, he again, in 1866.
appeared at w attack s as 'John L nit,
in Mrs. Bateman's comedy of Self. Mr.
Owens has been for some time at the
head of a combination troupe

is an actor of rare abilities, and a man
of muck culture and refinement. The

style never surpassed.
Ole Bull's Cone.rt Te-Nlenl
it is too late in tne dav to say an v-
tuing in commendation of Ole Bull.
His reputation as a great artist was
made before the latest generation had
seen the light of day. Nearly forty
years ago he was one of the pronounced
masters oi tne violin. A pupu of Paga
nini, the most renowned of violinists,
he more nearly approaches his master
than any of the violinists known to the
world since. His peculiarity, akin to
that of the master, is that of a soul-felt
expression which reaches the heart of
he untutored, and captivates those who
have the advantage of a technical edu
cation iu music. He is "master o'er
himself," and therefore leads the hearts
and understanding of his hearers cap
tive. He has no tricks: he disdains the
motives that impel so many musicians
to eater to the "mob." He is profound
ly convinced of the mission of his art.
and acts up to promptings that com-
Krt with that conviction. Wher
ever he has traveled (and where
has he not?l this quality has been
recognized as his most prominent, and
as secured lor him the esteem as well
i the respect of the most cultivated
musicians and the love of the people.
He unites to largeness of heart the in
dependence of a true and noble artist,
devotion to music and a knowledge of
the capacity of the most wonderful of
all instruments that makes him a prince,
a leader among violinists. Mr. Glad
stone, Premier of England, recently said
that more could be claimed for the violin
than for the steam engine. In saying
this he must have had the great music 11
missionary, who is to appear before our
people to-night, in his memory. Ole
Bull has beeu everywhere, and every
where is hailed the violinist without a
rival. Here is the programme for to
night: HAH! 1.

fhere are occassiouallv rapid changes
and suiideu alterations in freight rates,
but the change in the weather since our
last report exceeds anything of the kind
we have seen recently. ignt iietore
last it was cool but cloudy, aud yester
day morning the wind changed to the
west, causing a decline in the tempera
ture of several degrees, and during the
afternoon and evening the wind blew
strong from the southwest, the mercury
tailing to thirty degrees above zero, and
at night twenty -seven degrees above or
live degrees below the freezing point
W ith the change in the weather there
came heavy floating ice in the river that
ran past the city all day, and up to a late
hour at night, interfering greatly with
boats getting to the levee as it floated in
and tilled up the current on this side of
the river, occupying a space of perhaps
hundred yards aud lodged between
the boats already at the bank
and the shore, crowding them
considerably, but did them no injury
further than to stretch their lines taut.
But few, if any, expected the ice this far
down, and boats going up that left here
two days since, have, it seems, made
but little headway on its account. The
James D. Parker had her bow scratched
and .-ut considerably, and other boats
fared as bad. The Frank Forrest, though
she tried for hours,could not get through
it to come to the landing, and went
across the river. The ferryboat, John
Overton, was in the same predicament,
while the Parker was fully two hours
getting in to the bank. The ice is from
three to five inches thick, and comes
doubtless from the Mississippi above
Cairo. It will probably run out to-day,
but the cold weather last night will
make it harder than ever. The river
rose two inches here yesterday,
and at night was nearly-
stationary, and twelve feel eleven
inches above low water mark. The
Arkansas continues to rise slowly, aud
has six and a half or seven feet in the
channel. White river has a still greater
depth, and the other Southeru tributa
ries are iu excellent boating order. The
changes reported by signal telegrams
since our last report are as follows: A
rise of six inches at Shreveport, and one
inch at Pittsburg. Also a decline of
seven inches al Nashville, twenty-one
inches atinciuuati, and three inches
at Cairo, while at Vicksburg, Louisville,
St. Louis and Davenport the river was
