The County Court of Pulaski County, lias made an order ap pointing a commission of three members of the ( ounty Court, to consist of the presiding Judge and two associate justices to be select ed by him, to enter into negotia tions with the holders of all their county bonds and scrip, and ascer tain the best, terms that can lie procured for the sealing, funding and refunding of the same, and to make a report to next regular term of County Court in July next. Hurrah for Arkansas.—A test of the anthracite coal of Johnson county, was made in St. Louis last Friday. The test was made on the Kobt. Si mylo. and the heat produced was in -tantaneous and intense. Competent judges pro nounced one ton of the coal equal to two tons of the best Pittsburg coal for making steam. The test was highly satisfactory and was witnessed by a number of manu facturing men. ’Kali for Arkansas! A curt our freak of nature was that which occurred in Searcy a few days ago. A sow gave birth ton litter oi live pigs ana two kh tcns. The pigs were perfect pigs: and flic kittens were perfect kit tens as to head and feet, but from the head back looked like pigs. They were all doing well and seemed to be on good terms, and to share equally the affection of the mother sow. We don’t have any such frol ieks as that lip here. A Warning to Newspaper Men —Alice A. Early, of Rockport, 111., who brought suit against W. F. Storey, of the Chicago Times 'for defamation of character, has been awarded $25,000 damages. The article on which the action was brought, was written under the belief that the story was true, several letters affirming its truth ami signed by prominent citizens of Rockport having been sent to the Tunes. A retraction was sub sequently published, but was not sufficient to satisfy tiie injured party, who sought legal redress, with the above result. Three Cents per Week.—It is obviously to the direct interest of every man who owns property in Pope county, and who makes this county his home, to have the county prosper, fill up with good Industrious people ami ac cumulate wealth as fast as possi ble. ITT ..11_ - -1. _ er stopped to remember that an holiest newspaper to advocate the interests of the county is the greatest and cheapest means of placing the advantages of the county prominently before the world? And have they consider ed how cheap it is?. On tv tiiuei-: cents i-ek week.! Every man in the county can get the Dkmockat for one dollar and lifty cents per year—less than three cents per week. Any every man in the , county lias friends some where else who arc anxious to know something about l’opc county. You can read your copy of the Dkmockat yourselves, and then send it to your friends. Thus for three cents per week you are pushing forward the interests of your county. You can devise no means by which you can do so much for your county at so small a cost. Even to write a letter will cost more. We are willing to work hard to make our paper a power in building up our country; may we not ask every man who has any interest in the county to contribute three cents per week to the cause by sending in your suViscriptions? We don't nsk this as a gilt, for we give you tile value ol your money ten times over. hook at the amount of reading matter you get—and all useful and directly concerning home matters—in the course of a year. Two hundred and eight pages the size of the Democrat, in the course of the year, for one dollar and a half. Ko other reading matter so cheap or useful. Friends, send in your subscrip tions! It, will be like broad east upon tho waters, you will never miss it, and you will get an abuu dent return. i CLAIMS AGAINST THE COUNTIES. The Clarksville Vanguard rais ' es ilie question whether it is a i good law to do away with the pub lication of the claims allowed by the County Courts. While we are much in favor of retrench ment, and arc totally opposed to any and all unnecessary expenses, wo cannot but think that it was a I good provision of law which re quired the advertisement of these j claims. It is due to the people 1 who pay the taxes to know what \ their money is expended for. It is also a check upon the extrave Iganceofthe County Courts and other county officials. When it is known that every claim allowed by the county is to be inspected by the people, the individuals I who are invested with the power to pass upon these claims are go ing to be very careful and allow no claims but those which are just and made out at legal rates. The cost is but a trifle and the ; satisfaction and convenience i which it affords to the people will amply justify the expenditure. KEEP OUT OF DEBT. While there may be cases where it is almost impossible to get along without going in debt more or less, as a general rule the safer plan is to keep entirely free from debt. The benefits conferred by a credit system are 1 »y no means | commensurate with the evils en • i i i .1. . 1 i i .. _ l il.. | Vi l I It' I . iJUlll lUC UtMtUl KIIU U1V. I creditor are alike injured by it. The depressing influence which a ! general state of indebtedness ex erts on the general prosperity I of a country is immense. We are all very sensible of the burden of our public indebtedness of late years, and the enormous expense it has been to run our state government on account of the depreciated credit of the state. Hut individual indebtedness is is just as objectional as public in debtedness, and its influence is just as depressing and burdensome to the individual, as it is to the public. We will have hard times just as long as we arc involved in debt. We are glad to sec an inclina tion on the part of the people oft our county to avoid going in debt, and to catch up and paddle their own canoe. This is the best for all, and we hope a strenuous effort will be made this year to keep out of debt. ’T will be better to dis pense with all the unnecessary articles, and live hard lor a while, than to go in debt for things that can be dispensed with, if we can just make it through this year without going in debt to any con siderable degree, we have no doubt that we will begin to pros per in Pope county next year as we have never prospered before. I.et all our people guard against going in debt this year, and next we will not need the credit sys .. * It LA Mi. TAX RECEIPTS. Who Pays For Them? The Attorney General of the State has given his opinion under date of April 22d, 187."), to the ef fect that under the present pro visions oflaw there is no authority for the auditing and allowance of claims against the state for blank tax receipts. J f this is the law, and we suppose it is, wo think it is rather hard on the collectors. And we think, too, that it is a very had law, and ought to bo repealed, if necessary. Or If not necessary to repeal any of the existing pro visions, some new provision should be enacted, so as to make the State furnish the necessary blanks to have the taxes collected. If the State is not able to pay the expense of collecting, it is a. very bad condition of affairs. It must he remembered that the foes of the sherfll' have been reduced and ; to force him to pay the expense of tax receipts, on top of the re duetion in his fees, is just a little too hard. Public officials, we think, earn their pay, and we should guard against making the pay of ollicials.so small as to make the office unacceptable to a res ponsible man. APPORTIONMENT OF THE SCHOOL FUND. Secretary of State Beavers, who is ex officio Supt. of Public In struction explains why the ap portionment of the State School : i' und has not been made, as re quired by recent act of the legis lature. : It appears that the delay arises lruui the fact that a number of i the < utility Superintendents* have foiled to send in their reports, which prevents a just apportion ment of the fund. Why are not public officials held to a more punctual discharge of the duties of their office. »UKVINO THE ANIMOSI TIES OF THE PAST. A card, signed by Henry Page, iate Lieut. Col. and Brevet Col. I'. S. Vol., and John P. Bull, late Lieut. Col. Newton’s Reg't Ark. Cav. C. S. A., has been published in the Gazette, calling upon the people of Arkansas to select a day on which all can unite as one peo ple and attend the annual decora tion of the graves of deceased soldiers who sacrificed their lives in their efforts to sustain the cause most dear to them in the late war. The lines between the blu'e and the gray are to be blotted out, and dowers are to be strewn upon the graves of all alike. Wc are glad to chronicle this as one of the signs of returning good feeling between the victors and the van quished of the late war—as an indication that the true men of both sections are willing to for get the past, bury oh^ animosities and stand side by side, as peers and common countrymen of one great nation. This is just as it should be. Why should it not be so? We can conceive of no pos sible good that can come to the country as a nation, or to any par ticular section of the country, from a further agitation of the past differences between me ioi lowers of the stars and stripes and the stars and bars. We are will ing to concede that each acted their part and were prompted by what they honestly conceived to be their duty at the time. We accord to each honesty of purpose, and desire not to impugn any man’s motives. All men cannot see matters alike. Men difler in view's on almost every conceivable subject. Great and good men and men whose honesty of motives none dare question, have differed in all times and on many great questions. For our part we think the laurels are not always exclu sively on the side of the victor. Judgment may be at fault, and human wisdom is not so far-reach ing but that it may mislead men who are disposed to do right. In such cases we see no cause why eternal chastisement should be heaped upon the vanquished. The vanquished and victor are now alike Citizens and subjects of one government—of a government, too, which claims to be the refuge and asylum of the oppressed of every land and clime. As citi zens, they should be equal, and enjoy alike the blessings and priv ileges of their common govern ment. We hope the day may speedily come when no northern man may feel animosity to the south, and no southern man re sentment to the north on account of the past. Our whole country needs a genuine peace,—the peace of reconciled and re-united com mon-countrymen. Let the errors and aggres ions of the past be forgotten and let common-country men work together for the glory of a common father-laud. 1775-1875. Journalism lOO Years Ago. The New York Herald of the 19th instant, gave fae-simile re productions of the newspapers which first published the news of the stirring events of the never to-be-forgotten 19th day of April, 1775. The striking form in which the Herald’s enterprise has given us a reproduction of these ancient pa pers, showing the very Torm of their antiquated type, their queer devices and emblems, and awk ward headlines, conveys to the mind a vivid impression of the effect which the original papers must have had, when they first heralded the news to the world a hundred years ago. The reproductions are fac-sim ilo copies of Uivingston's Ga zetteer, Essex Gazette and Massa chusetts Spy. The Herald’s enterprise in this effort is not only valuable as af fording a display equal in effect J to any parade or speech or pa geantry, but also as affording a striking contrast between the plain uuostentious journalism of! one hundred years ago, and the elaborate and enterprising spirit of journalism of to-day. -«► -- Reynolds, the dramatist, obser ving the thinness of the house at! one of his pieces, said, “1 suppose j it is owing to the war!” “No,” j was the reply “it is owing to] the piece.” LOUISIANA. The New Complications. We hud hoped that our unfor tunate sister State, which has been so outrageously oppressed and imposed upon by the uncon stitutional interference of the fed eral government, would soon see better times, and be delivered from any further persecutions by the Grant emissaries who have done so much mischief already. We had hoped that the humilia tion of the acceptance of the com promise would be overbalanced by the peace and quiet which was ex pected to be secured to the State. But from appearances at present, all our hopes are likely to be blasted, and the State is liable to be subjected to still further inter meddling, and that the exaction of Grant’s tools in that State are to again plunge the state into dis order and confusion. When will the time come when the states of this Union shall stand on an equality and have the same privileges in their own State management? When will the Constitutional guarantees thrown around the States be allowed to apply equally to all the States? The Shrevesport Times of the 23d instant has this»tosay in re gard to the new complications in that State, to-wit.: The tenor of our dispatches in dicates that the people may yet be deprived of the fruits of the adjustment by a miserable subter fuge—an attempt to violate the spirit if not the letter of the award 01 tue t ongrcssionui t om mittee. After the ^eveutfull 4th of January, it seems that four in dividuals, not returned elected even by the returning board, were j seated in the Lou Dudley-Sheri i dan Legislature. Why the status of these bogus representatives were not passed upon by the com mittee of award wC are not inform ed, but it is wry evident they have no title to their scats; yet the indications are that the pub lic interests, the reform measures and the pacification of the State are to be sacrificed on the issue of the status of these men. The conservatives insist they shail be ousted, and Marshal Packard threatens if they are the republi can members shall adjourn the Senate and prevent 0113' reforma tory action of the Legislature. Our Information is not at this time full enough to enable us to judge of the course of the con servatives, but there can be but one opinion of the impertinent intermeddling in the Legislature, of the dirty thief Packard. It was to have been expected that when the people of Louisiana consented to the compromise, and surrendered so much for the sake of peace, that the President would have instructed his tools in the State to have attended to their own business. The indica tions are, however, that federal interference is to be continued in our affairs; and if such proves to be the case, the sooner we withdraw from the compromise and remit the question of our freedom or slavery to the country, the better. It begins to look as though there is to be 110 peace, justice or repose in Louisinaua until Kellogg, Packard <& Co., are ridden out of the State on a rail. We await the issue of this new ’complication with interest. To Sheriff* and Clerks. Wc re produce to-day a letter from Gov. Garland to the sheriffs and clerks of the various counties, requesting reliable information in regard to the population, acreage in cultivation, produce grown, number of hands actually at labor, Ac., and any other information bearing upon the development of the resources of the different counties. While it will be a little extra duty for the different sheriffs and clerks to get up this information, it is to be hoped that they will lie willing to make some exertion to comply with the request; for the growth and prosperity of our stale depends upon our exertions lbr the next year or two. Wc must furnish the world and those seek ing homes in Arkansas, such in formation as will convince them that our state, notwithstanding the hard struggle she bus had lo free herself from the baleful intlu euoo of carpet-bug rule, is keeping pace with the other states in pro gress and enterprise. We hope the showing furnished by the sheriff' and clerk of Pope county will entitle our county to a place in the front ranks.

A colored rough stepped into a sa loon and tapping a white man on the arm asked him to take a drink; whereupon the said white man did proceed to give said col ored man his idea of social equal ity by genteelly knocking better than half of the impudence out of said darkie. CONWAY. Planting is progressing rapidly and regularly. Most of the corn and cotton planting will be fin ished this week. So says the Weekly State. JEFFERSON. We are informed by an employ- j j ee of the road that on Friday' night at Chicot City the depot, safe containing the books aud j valuable papers of the company, and the company buildings of the T. M.

At a special meeting of the directory of the Prairie County Agricultural Society, held last Saturday, the committee on pre mium list reported a complete list, which was adopted. The pre miums .are much more liberal than have been offered heretofore, and we think we can safely say, even so far in advance, that our next fair will be the most success ful one ever held in this county. The directors have set their heads to have a big fair, and they are . too earnest in their work not to succeed. The premium list will be given shortly.—[Des Arc Citi ZPT1. Chops.—The clear weather we have hail recently has put the farmers ahead of the season. About all the old ground corn is planted, up, and the plows are in it tkig week.

The house of Mr. John Edwards, about 7 miles from Bentonville, on the Sugar creek road was burned to the ground on Friday last about midday.

Some fears liavo been expressed , that wheat lias been hurt by the j recent freezings, but we are glad to say that our farmers report otherwise, and that the crop is [ doing quite well.

Lm isvn.i.K, April 20.—Reports to the “Courier-Journal,” from all parts of the state, say that great damage has been done to fruit and tobacco plants by the unseasona ble frost and snow of last week. Last season was a very bad one ; for tobacco-growers in Kentucky, and much destitution lias followed in consequence.
