rr We publish ia to-dayl* paper a conucumca
ties from afrtead m Ctarkesville, recommending to
the consideration of the convention, the claims of
the Hoa. A. B. Greenwood.
Wc do not wish to be considered however as
endorsing fully the views of the writer. We would
regret indeed if any controversy of a sectional
character a^oald be iniroduced into the proposed
convention to mar its harmony.
Judge Greenwood’s claims rest upon higher
grounds. His sterling and long tried services in
the democratic ranks recommend him to the fa
vorable consideration of the mhol/ party.

We ki< the pleasure oa Tuesday night last of
witnessing am exhibition. by the pupils of Isaac
N. Sleveas, at Monad Church, in the Lefevre
acUkment. The eatertaiameat was gotten up
with the very best taste, and the performance in
terspersed with instrument and vocal music, was
remarkably g ven. The pupils displayed a degree
of progcieacy in memorising, aad per'ection in
delivery, that rcdecta the bigest credit npnu the
industry and ab.kties of the teacher. In short we
were highly pi eared and entertained by the variety
and ap>nt of t he whole performance. Mr. Steveru

is entitled justly to the commendation of ail, for
his earnest efforts in the great cause of education.

many eaadidatea ia tbe field, defeat a probable if
not inevitable.
In tbe nest convention many subjects of inter
est aad importance to the party will be brought
up (or its action. Beanies we bate • Governor to
elect, a nomination for which, the present condi -
i tma of the party imperatively requires. We have
i many aspirants in the field, and unless some such
step is taken to point out the sun for tbe support
of the party, tbe wildest visionary cannot for a
moment entertain a doubt of (he result. If the
party assembles in convention, we regard ourselves
as particularly fortunate m having before us so
!•*** * numbercf tbe most popular and talented
, gentlemen ia the State, from whom to make a se
j lection; but should a convention fail to meet,
this very fact, which could be used so adranta
.geously for the democracy, would be .per ruled to
j its defeat.
We have electors to caat the Presidential vote,
also to select, a ml are the democrats willing to have
| the vote of this State ia tbe approaching Presi
dential election eaet fora whig f Are they wdling
j to have lha State misrepresented in tt.e electoral
| college, and the voice of our people raised in be
half of a whig candidate tor the Presidency, most
j assuredly every true democrat "would evcla ru
sgaiart such s result. Let us then m im- take
suck measures as will ;asure the vote of the State
of Arkansas being cast ia favor of the good old
democratic cause.
h | A convention will be necessary to select dele
gates to the National Convention. It is of the '
• utmost importance to Arkansas and to the South.
* j that such t candidate as is opposed to the ngits
i lion of the slavery question, opposed to the agres
■ sums of the north and a friend to the rights and
, j institutions of tbe alavehoiding States, should be
selected by the National Convention. And there
fore to procure such s desirable object, the State
should be fully and ably represented.
Tbe approaching elections are of the utmost im-'
portauce to the democracy of the Union, snd we
i should not by supineness an j apathy is the out-1
! set suffer1 our cause to be endangered by defeat,
j The democracy in the las: elections have been
triumphant every whore, and the last vestiges of
I »biggery, by one more effort, can snd will be
; driven from the land.
We tave received several letters from different
portions of ‘.he State, in which the fourth Monday ,
! m April nest was suggested si an appropriate day
i f<w the meeting of the convention. We are indif- j
ferent as to the day appointed, but when remind
ed that the last convention was the fullest and
fiirert that ever assembled, we cannot but consider
j »* to the fitness of the time. W e hope the derr.o
j critic press of tbe Slate will take this matter early
m hsnu, and if tbe fourth Jkinday m April is ob
jectionable they will best consult the interests of
the party by naming one unse appropriate.
To us the tune of holding a convention is a
matter of indifference; wc wish that day selected ,
which wiil ensure tbe largest representation.
Waodrsfi Printing.
! In evanrntng an account for public printing 1
paid by the Auditor to Win, E. Wotylruff, we find
| that the account was ninety doliav*, fi* pruning !
>y squares, one week. Now Mr Woodruff pa
| fades the account of Whiteley s, certified by the '
j Secretary of State, fir the sum of *SS, as a “stu- 5
: pendous fraud’ up-,a the Treasury. It appears
, by Whiteiey’a account that he was over paid the
(sum or $42. and that in the other account, Wood
j ruff was over paid *14. Whiteley s acconnt it is s
evident waa certified by the Secretary of State, s
through a mistake, and also through mistake paid t
j by the Auditor. The mat vigilant officer is ltabie r
at tiroes to err, aad in this instance Maj. Greer is <
j ** guiltless of fraud as the Auditor, the “sworn t
guardian” of tbe Treasury. But here the parallel f
ceases. The account of Woodruff was a willful; i
intentional unpus.tion upon the Treasury. Had
the same printing been done at the “ Banner” :
office, which was done at Woodruff s. the account t
j would have been uaftr *15, thus making a d.ffer j
[ ence in favor of the State of the sum of 15 dollars,
j or just one half the amount that was pv.d to t
I Woodruff. But this would not do. Woodruff is
| the Auditor's friend, and by giving to the “ Gazette a
| * Democrat" the printing, be would at one stroke .
help bis friend, arid deprive his enemy of a just
tight, and tdiat pqf uliar care and vigilance (he ’
Auditor exercises 'over trie Treasury, when the i
“ Bsnner” is concerned, seems to depart when his
friend Woodruff calls for a warrant. Thus it will ll
be seen if the loss of 42 dollars; occasioned by the p
joint error of the Secretary and Auditor, can be p
called a " stupendous fraud,” that Woodruff and !
Danley's intentional error, may be set d„wn as !
rvrve ds/ters above s " stdpendous fraud.” Mr.
Woodruff! how is this ? 1

Mr. Stewart, in making his decision, must have v
relied on the decision of the United States in the M
case of Gear, in this case, the Court de erriim- !• °
ed that a reservation made by Congress of ‘.he' *
public d unam could not he affected or repealed, it
by special legislation, touching tr.e subject matter I*
of the reservation. [>
Now, the -ase of Gear is different entirely from
that under coniidertfion. In the latter Congress to
in passing the law of 1S43, intended to carry out K
the poltcj of the government in regard topre eaip- >r

the government, on lands that had been rtttrrtj tfc

An Eab soa Miwc.—A soldier, many years ago ^
was sentenced, for desertion, to have his can cut
off. After undergoing the brutal ordeal, he was cw
escorted out of the oourt yard to the tune of tbr ted
" Rogue's March.'' He then turned, and m mock cm
dignity thus addressed the musicians:—*• Oentie- pei

The above is from the pen of Mr. Woodruff, and
is intended ns a remonstrance against us, for not
attempting the defence of the errors of the Public
Printer. In reply we have to state, when a man
clearly commits sn error, we arc not disposed to
palliate tt. The ethics of the venerable editor in
Iba behalf, do not sgTee with ours; though in mat
ters of villiaiiy, we acknowledge Ida tmofetney.

Tb* ease of the notorious Thornton is a famous
instance of hut faithful observance of the advice,

rsrely afar off. when the perpetration of any piece
of rascality is going on; he must have known, as
well as every ewe else, that at the my tune he was
urging Thornton's nomination, with so much ear
nestness, the shameless vilhan was plundering the 1
Though the extent of hts frauds have since been
ascertained an 1 exposed, not one word of censure
or disapprobation of the man, has ever escaped the
editor o: the democrat.
Tborsitou was Woodruff's friend, and most truly i
did he throw around him his mantle of protection, j
to shield him, until he finally effected his escape !
from the country. Mr. Woodruff’s conduct in
this matter was clearlv in accordance with the
ra*e he has laid down, and it leaves him open to
the charge, which *e is so wiling and ready, at !
all linns, to prefer against others, that he was in
some w ay-jointly concerned with Thornton in tse
perpetration of this fraud. We infer this from his
conduct towards Thornton, and a perfect knowl
edge of Ins character, gives a peculiar strength to
the inference.
Thus Mr. Woodruff has unwittingly exposed the
rule which governs bit conduct, the s’rict obser
vance of which it is keen, sometimes leads bun
into the defence of very Uue acLons. And if it
w.ll not be thought an intrusive question, we
would like to know, if the above rule is a cardi
nal in the instructions Mr. Woodruff s venerable
morality affords the tender youth by hu side, “ the
ruing genius of his offspring1"
As we have cited an instance cf his observance
of his usual custom, we cannot drop this sulject,
without reminding Mr. Wooodruff of one signal
failure by him. to follow it up. Why did he not
“ volunteer some excuse,” however fmiious it
may be, for hts dear friend Borland, when his
celebrated speech, befor^the Internal Improve- {
rotnt convention, was so jnstly assailed ? Ne>gh- i

Mu***. Emuu; Heretofore tome of the menu
necessary in be adopted on tlie p*r. of the people
in the various counties to 'lac; emigration inJ
build up the interests of every section of the State,
were briefly noticed.
There are other designs. however, in which Ar
kansas, at a southern State. anJ an internal part
of this great and glorious Union, is deeply mier
ested, that demands considers;.,-n and effrtent ac
tion on the part of tier people. It is truly grat fir
ing to know that her pri pie arc now becoming
aroused from their slumbers—that the scales are
beginning to fall from their eves—that thev are
awake to their interests, and are desirous to sec ore
them. If the citizens of the State, in their indi
vidual and legislative cwpa^iUs, will not be vat s
fled with words,'but will put;tlie.r designs iiitdprat -
tical operation, and prosecu'e them to their final
completion, a new era will dawn upon the Slate
and people, which will surce.'s.fultv wipe out the
dark stain of apathy, indolence and unco rem
from her escutcheon, and inscribe for her a mrh
high in the temple of progress,ve reform. Then.
atwS not till then, may she espurt that capital and
enti rpr.se w ill penetrate to any Considerableextent
within her borders—then only may she anti, pate
that her vast internal resources will become tuny
known and appreciated.
The recent mass meeting held in your city is a
written monument of a new era in this wholeState.
Like a g wpel mess* ngrr of peace, it has been the
harbenger of “glad tidings and great joy” to thou
sands—it has infused a new spirit of life and in
quiry upon the subject of Internal Improvement ir,
Arkansas. From that point, as its f >cus, it has
radiated to a! parts of the compass—it has spread
like fire in dry grass, and penetrated the most re
mote corners of the .state. Wherever the senti
ment has gone i; Las incorporated itself as a con
stituent element, and entwined itself around the
hearts of the people. From the Mississippi to the
Indian Nation, and from Missouri's base to the
Louisiana border, there seems to be but one feel
ing—but one sentiment, w ith those who permit
their thoughts to overleap the narrow sphere of
self, _a.nd that is—“ gite ut same e'lannel that mli
ronnu-i us irilh the cmmrrctal vor'il try mi.''
Give us this, and Arkansas, though compara
tively obscure in point of her rich and unbounded
resources, wit’, ere long, be estimated as the Gol
conda of modern Jays. Elui-ale her sons and
daughters, and soon the lowering clouds of mental
and moral darkness will dissipate, before the cheer
ing beams of light and knowledge, and we may in
dulge a hope that the may y-r occupy the high
and enviable portion to the Western, that Greece
once did to the Eastern Continent. Who will dare
to say that such may not be her destiny! Who is
mean enough, that claims to be an Arkmaum, by
birth or adoption, to deny that the productions of
m:nJ from the capitol—from some other geograph
ical locality, or from the State at large, may not
yet be wafted easticnrj by the eentie zephyrs of a
corrected public opinion, and emblazoned on the
banners of other States and nations, asmodle sen
t merits in political economy, god progressive re
publican ref.-rm’ To produce this glorious result
is but to wu.i. that u he *>.
Between the north and the south, whose inter
ests are antagonistieal, there has always eruled a
rtvalship. To say nothing about the interference
with the internal institutions of the latter by the
former, this rualsbip has teen brought t,> bear
most successfully upon the commercial interest,
and, through it, upon the agricultural interests,
prejudicially to the south. This will always con
t.nue to be so. until the south throws otf thai de
gree <>f depend-nee upon the north which has here
tofore cramped her energ.es and er.ppled her pros
perity. That the southern portion of the United
States possesses decided advantages over the north
ern, in soil, climate, sea and gulf coasts. an3 na
tural channels of cctnmumcation is easy of de
monstration; yet this portion of our country is far
in the rear of their northern brethren in those great
improvements that contribute to the wealth, pros
perity and independence of nations. Already have
they of the noith projected a plan for a railroad to
the Pacific, by which the city of San Francisco
will be brought w.thin a few hours '.ravel of New
York, Philadelphia and Boston.
This seneme has several tunes been presented
to Cfongress and as often favorably enterta.ne-J by
that body. What would be the effect upon the
inter eats of the south were that road constructed?
is it n it too pa'pabiv p'.a.n to require an argument,
that the object is, aid the result would Lc, that
th~ whole of the rich trade and commerce w.ih
Asia and tnc productive islands ol the Pacific,
would be earned through this northern channel,
for the supply not only of o.ir ow n country, but
the w hole of Europe, while the south would be
made dependent upon the north fur many of the
substantia s as we,! as the ornaments and luxu
ries of Lfe? Will the southern people fold their
arm; yet longer and permit th- ir neighbors of the
north to rob them of this neb commercial boon
which was designed by nature to he enj ved by
the south! Will uot the pecple of the s^utli and
south western States arouse f.oul their past torpor
to prompt and efficient actum, and preserve their
rights* While the w aters are now troubled, w .(•
not Arkansas, at least, step in and avail herself of
the rich bo- n which is yet :n reserve for her*
New Orleans is destined by nature to be the
great eicp>r;^.a of the south and west. Her p: s
perity naturally depends upon the proap- rity of the
southern and south-western States; and their ad
vancement, reciprocally, depends upon hers It
is, therefore, the.: policy—yea, their duty, to un.te
as one man, to construct a railroad whose eastern
terminus will be at some point between the mouth
of the Arkansas and St. Francis river*, passing
westward through Little Rock, and Fort Smith,
and to extend onto the city of S»u Franc ac>, by
the way of Santa Fc. This route is entirely prac
ticable, and is shorter by between three and four
hundred miles, than any erthtjf. line that can pos
sibly be cons.rucled from the Mississippi river to
the Far fic, which would r ut, at the lowest evi.
rnale, /w million* of doi.ars leas than any other
contemplated route. Thu wuuiJ certainty be of
great advantage to New Orleans, and e>,w..!!y
would it advance the interest# of Arkansas, by
placing every section of the Slate, by its lateral
intersections, m ciose comm ub. nation with the
great commercial p unts of the country h would
build up a c;ty w .thm her own territory at the ter
minus upon the Mississippi, that would ec ,p« the
i-s.ng great ness of some of ohr neurnboring on.es,
and make onr State the lap into wrueh wou. l be
thrown toe treasures of the world.
It is lo be hoped that our deltga es to the New
Orleans Convention w.ll eia_mne this matter with
proper ddigeace, and to present the int- eats fthe
vale they represent as to sec are to her ,r. ..e r.ghla
