THE I) EM OC R AT,
hidik Printing Association, /‘ubli*ht rtt and /‘evprietor*. Offioe-Up stairs, BUtenflold Building, East Main Street JAMES E. BATTENFIELO, Editor, Tin: Houston Democrat office was destroyed by the late torna do in Texas county, Mo., it stood J Tyir as a newspaper, and the los', will be felt by the newspaper ira tern ity. W. !,. Cawfj.ii wr.rt re-elected Mayor, of Dallas, Texas, at the municipal elci 'ion on the 6th instant, by n majority of more than a ho .Hired over his oppo nent. The Legislature of the state of Louisiana, met iu extra session on the 14th, and was the most or derly Ural Inis assembled there for years. The terms of the Wheeler compromise Reem to be fully concurred in, and the award is being faithfully; carried out. ‘Col. Fred Grant was at the Grand Pacific, in Chicago, a short time since, and the Chicago Times sent “its man” down to interview the gentleman. The result was, the reporter got a sound cursing from Fred,—a cursing, which for profanity and ungentlemanly fa miliarity would have done credit to a fourth rate hackman. i lie reporter saici tnnt ne nas liail during his journalistic expe rience, occasion to meet the James hoys, Qiiantrell and other leading cut-throats and bummers of the West, but lie was never received before with so much familiarity and frankness. Paul Boynton, the inventor of a new life-saving apparatus, has recently tested the merits of his invention, by swimming across the British channel, to within five miles of the coast of France, a distance of fifty miles, in about fifteen hours, lie made the test during a stormy and boisterous sea, and was taken from the wa ter, with clothing perfectly dry and without any considerable ex haustion. He carried with him, an axe and bowie-knife, one days rations, cigars, matches, rockets and the American flag. Although he did not accomplish the feat of making a landing on the shores of France, owing to the rough sen, the darkness of the night and the refusal of his pilot boat to allow him to remain longer in the wa ter, his test of the swimming dress, proves it a success and a great acquisition as a means of diminishing the perils of ocean sailing. The royal yacht of Queen Vic toria will be supplied with these new life preservers. The County Grange, of Drew county, is earnestly considering the immigration question. A draught of a circular of informa tion regarding the climate, soil, re sources, Ac., of South-eastern Ar kansas, lias been prepared and ar rangements arc being made to in sert a short notice in tire leading newspapers of the eastern states to tlie effect that such circular can be obtained on application. Sev eral other counties have organized immigration Societies and are preparing to put in their claim, and make known the induce inents they otter to immigrants, in order that they may secure a portion of the new comers who will come flocking to our state this fall. Would it not be well for Pope county to wake up on this ques tion? We have urged our lead ing men to consider this matter, but have heard of no movement yet. We warn our people again, null if they wish to he behind all other parts of the state, their in activity will no doubt secure their desire. IMPOICTANT DECISION. The Court’of Claims, at Wash ington, 1>. has decided that tiie amnesty proclamation of Dec. li 5, 18(18, does not cutitle a peti tioner to a restitutii.ii of eonfis rated property. Judge Loriugde livered the opinion and held that the article of the Constitution investing the President with pow er to pardon crimes, does not an lhorize him to restore toneitures or to dispose of that part of tin national property. The Arkansas and l’oteau river have been higher this month lliai they have been for a long tiirn before. FUNDING COUNTY DEBTS. [ Elsewhere we publish an net providing for the funding of the indebtedness of the sevevul coun ties in this state. Thi'.* act should be road and carefuViy considered by the voters of y,ur county, for we are informed, 'lhfvt the county court of 0,111- county is going to take tl’.c sense of the voters of the eoir.ty on the question of funding; .id we would advise the tax pay ors to post themselves thoroughly, in order that they 11103- be aide to vote intelligently on the matter. There are some features in the act which we do not like. Among ! which wc name the fust section, i or that part thereof which author izes a mere majority of the county court to order the funding of the 1 debt at any rate less than fifty j cents on the dollar. This we don’t : like. If the debt is to be funded at all, let no part of it be repudi , ated. We think if the sense of the people is to be taken on the proposition to fund, it should be j on a par basis—that is, one dollar in bonds for each dollar of just in debtedness. The bonds will be issued in not less than twenty-five dollar pieces, and become due and pa3'alile in not less than ten nor more than twenty j-ears, and will draw seven percent, interest. No indebted | ness contracted after the 30th day of October 1874 can be bonded. [Warrants for bonding must be COv 11 IvU lil' UUV; tUUlHJ lUUJl within twelve months from date of the order for funding. The bonds, if issued, are to be made payable, principal and interest, either at the treasury of the coun ty issuing the same, or at such place in New York City as the county court shall determine upon. In regard to this part we think the court should not have such | power, but the bonds and interest should be made payable at the ! county treasury. The selling at auction, of the sinking fund, and taking in payment the bonds, is a feature that we are not prepared ! to endorse, but there may not be any serious objection to the same. We commend the act to a careful perusal of our readers. The frequent occurrence of riotous and disgraceful proceed ings iri our state legislatures has of late years become so common, that the subject demands serious consideration. The manner in which our legislative business is now conducted has become so no toriously shameful and disorder ly that it is a disgrace and a re proach to our civilization. We find little of the decorum and dig nity in our legislative bodies now a days which should characterize the actions of the representatives of a refined and enlightened con stituency. Truth compels us to make these assertions and we are sorry to say that a rigid adherence to truth would compel us to say that the evil is not confined to our state legislatures, but even extends to 'an equal degree into our gravest and most important deliberative bodies—the two houses of Con gress of the United States. Only a few days ago the ilis souri legislature broke up in a most disgraceful riot, where there was imminent danger of bloodshed and taking of life. If •things continue to move along in the present direction it will not be I long until the presence of a plat oon of efficient police for the pro tection of life will he a necessary and indespcnsable part of the ma chinery of our legislative bodies. Kvon now we dread the approach of the final days of these dignified and honorable assemblages, and cringe with horror at the antic ipation of bloodshed and violence, into which the dissatisfaction and pent up rage of turbulent mem tiers, is calculated to culminate about the time of adjournment; for it is at this period that our | legislative halls have of late years j borne more resemblance to a dis J graceful club room row, than a ! dignified body of respectable rep ; reseiitativeB of an enlightened ! people. This shameful condition of j things cries aloud for correction, j and we should demand a reform in this respect. We should not al low our representatives to dis grace us by an abusive und heath enish use of the privilege of the legislative floor. "WHO IS ItHSPON&IBLE? One day lust week a young fel ■ low by the name of Hob Barnwell, was arrested on a warrant sworn out by K. Burney, before B. W. • ' ng grand larceny, under the act making the stealing of two dol lars and upwards a felony. lie was held under guard until Sun da}’ night, awaiting the arrival of a witness. Sunday night he gave the guard the slip and absconded with a horse, bridle and sad dle stolen from Mr. A. Shaver’s stable, and with the watch of his guard. The guard must evident ly have been asleep. Now we would like to ask what kind of a way this is to execute the law? Still it is just about the way nine cases out of every ten go. Wc venture the asser tion that it is all chargeable to neglect of duty in our officials. If they are not responsible who is? And so long as crijne is allowed to go unpunished in this manner, we would like to know what there is to deter evil disposed persons from committing depredations? What terror has the law for such characters, when they know there are nine chances for them to es cape where there is one for them to get the just punishment which their crime merits aud the law provides? We say let the laws be enforc ed, and let neglect of duty in offi cials be looked after and punished. This thing of treating criminals with great courtesy, furnishing them a guard to parade the city with them at their pleasure, and gratifying every wish for fear of hurting their feelings, is getting a little too thin. We must hold /kilt* aM!( >1 n lo n ofdinlm i r\ a . . 4 ability for the performance of their duty; and if their tender heartedness is so great as to be hurt by enforcing the law against criminals, we had better get some who are not so fastidious in feel ings. There has beeu guard ser vice enough paid in Pope count}’, in the last year or two to build a good jail, and almost every pris oner arrested has escaped. Fur ther comment is unnecessary. ONE FLAG-ONE (Ol'NTHY -ONE PEOPLE. The smoke from the great bat tle of 18G1--18G3 is beginning to clear away, The skies are clear ing ofT and we are beginning to see where we stand. Common sense and reason are beginning to assert their sway over the minds and feelings of men. Old ani mosities and prejudices are llick eringi.j the socket, and we watch with eager desire to sec them for- j ever die out. The bloody chasm is growing narrower and narrow er, and soon we may hope to see again rejoicing over One Flag, One Country and One People. The signs of the times are good. The whole country is aroused and eager to participate in the Centen nial celebration. North, South, East and West are zealous to make this aniversary of our coun try’s birth-day a grand ' and a glorious success. This is a good sign. In Chicago recently, at a meeting of prominent gentlemen in charge pf the arrangements for the forthcoming soldiers reunion, the proposition was made by flnn CG.lnn t-r. J U „ 4 ! to all surviving soldiers of the late war throughout tShe country— east, west, north, anft'sortth. The proposition was favored by other gentlemen present, and was! adopted by a unanimous vote. Another good sign. Again, a short time since, Gov. Porter, an ex-confederate officer, by invitation of General Penni backer, federal commander at the i post of Nashville, reviewed the j troops at the barracks in the i presence of an assembly of five thousand persons, and amidst good feeling and a great deal of enthusiasm. Events like these forbodc good and glory to the country. Thank God for the signs of the times. Let the centennial see the good work of reconciliation and re-iin ion fully and firmly consumated, and the whole country united in the bonds of patriotism and fra ternal good feeling. MllKKl* ion ARKANSAS. From the .Midland Farmer for April, we clip the following let ter : Mileb Station, Macoi imn Co., 111., | March 18, 1815. j Mesin. Geo. \V. Matthews A Co.: Sir:—In the Midland Farmer for January 1 noticed u communi cation headed, “Improved Merino Sheep for Southern Missouri.” Sir, I wish to go to a milder cli mate and a good sheep range. You will confer a great favor if you will put me in communication or send address of some parties having such cheap grazing lands for sale in the southern part of your state or Arkansas. He j speaks of thousands of acres of w ^natures. I should suppose prairie, from what he says, at $2 per acre, or less A Subscriber. [Will some one of our sub scribers in Southern Missouri or Arkansas answer the above?—Ed. Farmer.] We have no hesitancy in assert ing that we have the climate; and although we cannot say that we know exactly what would be termed good siieep range, wc think that sheep raising could bo made easy and profitable in this part of the state. So far as our observation extends, we have never seen a country where sheep did any better than they do here, considering the attention paid to them. We have no doubt but that a thorough test would prove that our climate and country is well adapted to the sheep business. Right here in Pope county would be a splendid field to engage in the business. We have the cli mate, the water and the range. Our hill-sides, vale's, and prai ries, would afford a splendid di versity of range, and there is no better watered country anywhere. Perhaps some of the readers of the Democrat will take interest enough, in this, to give us their opinion of Pope county as a field for sheep raising. FROM ALL QUARTERS. We clip the following item's from our exchanges: "White County: 11UJ VyUlilb I1UUBC giuuuua «*»v being sowed in grass. Hope they’ll not prove Jamestown weeds, as they did once before. At least that was all that ever appeared after the sowing of the grass seed.—[Searcy Record. Fruit hasn’t suffered a particle from the recent cold snaps.

Independence County: Cool weather for some days and an occasional frosty night, but the fruit in this section is yet unin jured.—| Batesville Republican. Prairie County: Chop Prospects.—Last week was more favorable for the farm ers, and they took advantage of the pretty weather to put their seed corn in the ground as rapidly as “all hands” could do it. Sev eral got through planting their corn, and will be putting in their cottonseed this week if the weatii es will admit. Everybody is at work in good spirits. We notice one thing that will be a consider able drawback with some farmers: their plow stock is not in good condition. This is owing to the great scarcity of corn during the winter. Many are now feeding on corn that was raised on the prairies of Illinois.—[Des Arc Citizen. The Little Rock Gazette very justly gives the Russellville Dem non at t.hfi lirniftft of homo* t.lu* printed paper in the state.— [lb. Hempstead County: Hope still continues to improve notwithstanding the scarcity of money. Should the coming crop be encouraging our little town will grow faster next fall than it ever has done.

Sevier Countv: On Wednesday night week a terrible crime, attended with fear ful loss of life, happened in Se vier county, near Nebo church. A farmer, who had sold out witli the intention of moving to Texas, was visiting a neighbor, and in the night feeling a presentiment of evil, in company with a Texan returned to his house, where he observed a light burning. Peer ing in the window the two men saw four robbers counting the money which they had stolen. Both men being armed with double-bnrreied shot guns, they fired upon and killed all the robbers, anil then entering the house, the farmer was crazed by the sight of his murdered wife and two children, who had been slaughtered by the robbers.—[Gazette. Clark County: A “fellow” was in our city last week, calling himself Prof. (?) J. S.

The gen tleman, wc believe, hails from Little Rock. Let the press pass him around.—He’s a “bad egg.”— [Southern Standard. The wheat crop throughout this section of the state promises to yield largely.

An Act to Authorize the several counties in this state to fund their Outstanding In debtedness. Be it enactoil by the (.encrai Assembly or the State of Arkansas. Section 1. That the county courts of the several counties of this state be, and they are hereby empowered to issue the bonds of their respective counties, in any sum necessary to pay the out standing indebtedness of such counties, including claims against the same due on the 30th day of October, A.
