Smith, who was elected Lieutenant Governor of Arkansas with Baxter two years ago, lias is sued a proclamation declariug that the new constitution is illegal, and hence Garland, elected under it, is not legally Governor and Baxter having abdicated to Garland, Smith is Governor. Garland has issued warrants for the arrest of Smith and others for conspiracy to usurp certain offices. to the 1 BLACKSMITHINQ. Lakes. The subject of connecting the waters of the Mississippi river and Inke Michigan by means of a canal through the Fox and Wisconsin rivers, is being again actively agita ted. The Farmer'g Union newspaper, of Minneapolis, Minnesota, takes a leading part In advocating the meas ure and trying to secure an appropri ation of some $o,O0O,(KH by Congress to complete the work and make a free canal. Two copies of a memorial to Congress will l» sent to each Grange in Wiscon9lu, Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska and Dakota within the next two weeks, for signatures. The Union hopes to secure the name of every farmer in the Northwjest to the following MEMORIAL. 7b (he Honorable the Menrtte and the Hotune (tf Representative*, of the United S^itex of AnwrifU, ut Con gress itxKemO/ed: Wii kkkas. Cheaper and more am ple means of transportation are im* peratively necessary to the develop ment of the Western States and whereat, the Report of the Select Committee on Transportation, recent ly submitted to the United States Senate, demonstrates the fact that the adequate improvement of the Fox and Wisconsin Water Route, from the Mississippi River to Green Ray, will reduce the cost of transport ing grain from the river to the lakes at least ten cents per bushel below the average railway charges, thereby effecting a saving on the movement of a single crop, from the States of Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Ne braska and Missouri of nearly $10,- 0|!(»,000, or a sum nearly double the entire cost of the proponed improve ment to which saving must b»» aridml tiui reduced c*mt ol lrars|Mri ing lumber, wait, iron, and other heavy commodities from thu hikes to the Mississippi River, amounting to many millions more and whereas, this annual saving to the farmers of the Northwest will, when one-half the land in those States is under cultivation, amount to more than twenty times the entire cost of the proposed improvement, therefore We, the undersigned, farmers, re siding in County, State of respectfully and earnestly pray that such appropriation be made as will ensure the completion of said Water Route from the Mississippi River to Luke Michigan, via the Fox and Wisconsin Rivers, at the earliest pntcticable moment, and bv such im provements rs will afford the cheap est anil best facilities for water trans portation. KAMKS. Of coars* Congress would commit an unpardonable sin and terrible out rage in the eyes of these "farmers" if it should give a few thousand acres of worthless public lands for such a purpose, but every farmer in the Northwest must ask the donation of millions in cash from the public treasury which Is now billions In debt. And if they get it, for so worthy a cause as this they will turn upon the Republican majority iu Congress and berate it for its extrav agance and crime in giving such an enormous steal to a great monopoly job. This same Farmer*a Union has led off in such cries of corruption upon similar cause to that which it now asks Congress to repeat. It isn't even willing that any but a farmer should help the cause by signing the petition. Now when the formers have asked and received their demand, let there be no grumbling about any Mobilier. Let the responsibility follow the re quest. The memorial was prepared by Senator Windotn, of whom the Un 'um speaks as the champion of the Trans portation movement. When the petition is signed and ready it w ill be placed in the hands of Senator Win dom for presentation to Congress. If the work will affect the saving to the Northwest which the memorial claims, the request is reasonable, and will probably be granted. Something should be done by Congress to cheapen transmutation of heavy freights from the Mississippi valley east, and vice verm. This work would effect the objyct for the summer months when there is least new] of such a route, there being less to haul and more competition, in the winter of course the canal would !e clowni by ice, and then the corn and |ork would have to go by rail as now. Railroad. Again railroad is the absorbing theme ef conversation upon our streets and it is unanimously deci ded thatNgomething must be done to secure $ road during the year 187**, and that it must be done right here at home| that the road must be built and owned and operated if necessary by homOcnpital and home men—that we havip waited long enough upon others, fnd receive only kicks and broken Jtfedges for our patience. The 'railroad companies tell us they are inot reac^ and for twenty years we have w4ted for them to bring us a road, angl in vain. Now our people begin tojvonclude that the only way to secur^a road is to build it. Such lieing tho sentiments very freely a»d generally expressed it is now prd|ty well settled that our peo ple are Ap»re generally agreed than ever be$re that something must be done an& that soon and liberally. If a new otttupany is to be organized, as some prffer, the present is not too soon to begin. At all events all pre liminary work should be done this winter, Including surveys and in the spritg we should lie ready for the real wolfc on the line. The S|. Louis papers announce that the Quifcy & St. Paul company has purchased the grade from Moulton to Alhla, Md will complete it and put on iron ami rolling stock at an early day. T|u company we understand is to co-operate with the company recently organized at Ies Moines the prinktry object being to directly connect I)e* Moines and St. Louis. From I)js Moines the road is intended to extend rift Mason City to St. Paul. It is said that the Sigourney branch of the C* R. I. A P. road will be ex tended, to Onkaloosu at least, next year. Also that the Southwestern will be pushed forward. Of coutrsi we do no« expect to wel come ail these roads to Knnxvilh next ye|r hut we can have one o* them If we ilrlke for it in earn«*l and as generously and courageously as we ought. Let it be understood that w*«^n and" win h*»Ip ourselves mjhiI htilld a road that w fll fr»*» u« from tii»' merciless grasp in which w« are now held by the roads on either side of us. If the Rock I-land Com pany want to occupy the eleven miles of grade between heieand Bellelon taine they must speak U-fore man\ weeks have jwtased. And the com pany that wants the thousands whicl Knoxville will give next year for railroad must come to the front early. Friday of next week, 27th Inst., p. in., has been decided upon as the time for a preliminary meeting o. citizens to canvass the subject and take initiatory ste|*. The Court House, Knoxville, is the place More than one week's notice is given in order that those in the country, as well as in the town, who feel inter ested in the matter, may have fair warning and an opiairtuuity to pre sent their views aud be reprcscnteii at the start. Aud if anything is to !e effected, we must have a lift frftui every freeholder in Knoxville towu ship, aud man)* others. There is no need of any eicitemeut about this matter. It may yet be a failure, and disappointment be our reward, as it has many times hereto fore. But we must keep striving until success comes. We shall not succeed without an effort. John P. Irish says to the Uem •crallc Corpse: "Arlie." John Irish will contest with Mr. ilaui for the honor of resurrectiug the putrid reminiscence which he buried with such solemn pomp two years ago. This, from the Dubuque Time*, explains: A good Democrat, one of the old fashioned kind that can rejoice as the children of inrucl rejoiced when they got out of the wood*, and had a dead sure thing on the promised land, re ceived a letter yesterday from John P. Irish, inviting the Dubuquer to a meeting aL Iowa City on December 2d next to reorganize tlus Democrat party. The Dubuquer thinks it's pretty cool iu John-who did the Coroner business for the party a year ago, declared it so dead it smelt bad, drove the nails iu the coffin, and or dered the corpse buried from sight to now be writing such letters. The Dubuquer says it may be true the party is resurrected, but he'll be hanged if it's proper for John Irishto] lift the coppers off its eyes aud bid it: rise to glory. "But then," repent-j antly, he said, "poor John! it's the only chance he'll have to welcome a narty or anybody to the joys of a hereafter." Senator Grimes' grave at Burling ton has recently been markeq tjjf $*,000 granite monument. nit* Farmers and Merchants. C. F. Clarkson, editor of the agri cultural department of the Jieyixtcr, says a great ma! y good things with his pen, and here is one of his best articles: Whatever wo have said heretofore relative to farmers holding on to the products of their farm until it would sell for the cost of production, was never intended to interfere with the first great duty of all men to meet all their contracts, and pay all their matured debts. If a farmer has purchased of the merchant on credit, with a promise to pay so soon as the crops could be marketed, let nothing induce one of them to forget his word. A man's honor is worth more than wheat, hogs or money. The merchant has favored the farm er with the necessaries during the summer until his capital is nearly invested in such promises, and un less the farmer promptly meets his contracts, the merchant has meetings to renew his stock on credit, which means thirty percent, dearer than for cash. Then he loses his customers, and if the farmer continues his custom (which he is in honor bound to do) lie has to pay higher for goods. Think seriously. It is not one, but in many cases whole neighborhoods,! have bought on credit, and probably that same neighborhood have held secret to devise ways to hold their produce. But at the same time they should devise ways to pre serve an untarnished credit. It i impossible for a man to even respect himself, if he, for gain, forfeits his word. So soon as a man, when he goes to town, avoids Ids old friend who has favored him, he knows in his own heart that he is not an hon est man. And who is willing to en dure a lacerated con«ciencH for a bet ter price for his hogs? Pay up, and then be independent, and be able to meet and face all men. This is the time of tho year when we would press home with force the great necessity of punctuality. Get out of this dilemma, and then by economy and ch»se management avoid all such situations in the fu tdre. So long as you are iu debt and the time has come for payment, the wheat In your bins, the corn in your fields and the hogs in your pens are not yours. They belong to an other. Take them home. Pay your debts. It mak«*s nodifferenee If they are cheap. Honor is worth more than per cent.

The Newton Headlight (Rep.) is ia hot pursuit of the Independent (Anti* Monop.) with the following square interrogatory and demands a square reply: In case the contest ia Idwa and throughout tho country is directly between Republicanism and Democ racy, what position will the Jnde pendent take? As a public journalist we ask a fair and square reply. 11 i* subscribers have a right to know where he stands, and the course he intends to pursue." The same question should be kept before several other papers within forty miles of Newton and Knox ville. They have repeatedly said that the Republican and Democratic parties are both equally bad. Now since the bottom has utterly fallen out of the middle road which they declared so good and the only road passable, these wise and extremely "honest" newspaper lights should be found shining upon some path and assisting their bewildered fol 1 wers out of the Anti-Monop, slough in which they are hopelessly floundering.
