Editor:—As it is a com mon tiling, these days, when a man goes to town or to the black smith shop, to write a history of his trip to some newspaper, I shall bog leave of you for a few random shots through the Democrat. I am not in the habit of writing to the public via the newspaper, but for a start will send a line to the Democrat. ****** For several years after the war the farmers seemed to be trying to see who could raise the most cotton, and as soon as it was gath ered it was hauled to town and turned over to the proper owner (the merchant). If any failed to be able to take it all out in the store, of course he was paid the balance in money which was spent for corn and meat to make anoth er crop on. But when one failed to have enough cotton to pay up ut; ini it i n' u 11, uwdiiii'u uia lull gence and increased his cotton patch a few acres to get able to pay up the old score and make a new bill for another year. The farmer is able now to see the fol ly of such a system. Thu* the farmer has been working hard these nine long years to make an honest living by the sweat of his brow, but somebody has got the cotton and somebody else the money, and the farmer to-day is like poor Hecchcr, “sitting on the ragged edge of despair.” And what is to be done about this bad state of affairs? IIow are we to get out of the old rut? Why honestly of course; by changing our mode of operating and going to work. Let us plant less cotton and make more of our own bread and meat. Then we will be out of the old rut, and be self supporting. F. - For the Dkmockat.] “Tiirn-a-bout is Fair Play.” Mu. Eorroit:—“Give us a rest.” . f don’t see why you must keep shooting your “Dkmocuat” gun at us tobacco chewers and smok ers, and coming down on us with such “thin” arguments as in the last issue,—as this: ,“It certainly must be very disgusting to the re lluemcnt and delicacy of the fe male members of the family.” That of course means these re ! final ladies we see on the street with a four inch swab stick pro jccting from the month, and th snuff juice dripping from the end Preach to us about our tobacci being disgusting to such refined senses of the female members o the family whose sense of smell ing and tasting is benumbed witl the “filthy” habit of dipping snuf that is made from the refusals ol what we use, and the swcepingi of the tobacco factory, and sole out to the “delicacy” of the family We admit that the chewing and smoking of tobacco is filthy am expensive, but no more so tliar the use of snuff and it is no worsi for us to spit on the church house floor and sitting room, than it is for the ladies, and the breath of i snuff dipper is certainly very dis gusting to the refinement and cultivated organs of the gentle men. Tobacco Che wee. For the Democrat.] From a Justice of the Peace. Galley Rock Towxsiup,) May 24th, 1875. f Editor Democrat:—I was elect ed justice of the peace in this township at the October election, and have never been able to get anything in the shape of law that has been enacted since the days of reconstruction, but fortunately was able to borrow a copy of 111 T\ • i O. . VJriMiiu rs uum uia; iuj neighbors, and have been getting along since with it as best I could. I sec an article in the Gazette saying, “The acts of the legisla ture of 1874 and 1875 will be ready” in a short time. “Price in pamphlet $5,25, bound in law sheep $0,50.” “Also the consti tution of 1874” &c., “uniform with Gantt’s Digest.” Price unknown which I guess will be between $10 and $50 more or less. 1st. Now what I want to know is will a justice of the peace be re quired to buy the works at the prices given and pay it in “cur rency” out of his own pocket? 2d. Did the last legislature pass an act ordering the acts and digest to “be printed by private enter prise?” and to be sold at a price which the printer may see lit to set on his work? . 3d. If not what is meant by “both works will be printed by private enterprise but by authority?” Or is the article and the prices intended for out side parties? llow is that any how? “I confess, I own up.” lint I suppose ns the people have REFORMED their state govern ment it is all O. K. Mr. Editor if I- am to act as justice of the peace I want the laws to go by. I wish you to print this piece and answer the above inquiries so 1 may know what to depend on. The weather fine, farmers are getting on very well •with the corn crop. Very bad stand of cotton, many plowing up and planting over. Abundance of wheat and the prospect for a good crop is very promising. Yhiira K 1st. Wc know of no law requir ing Justices of the pence to buy the books referred to, at any price. 2d. The Legislature did not pass such a law, but wc suppose any publisher would have the right to publish the Digest and acts by private enterprise; and the same would then be their own private property and they could offer them for sale at any price they might sec proper to place upon them. 3d. The books you see adver tised for sale, wre presume have been published at the expense of the publishers, are their own in dividual property, and any person who wishes to purchase them can do so; there is nothing < bliga tory upon any body to purchase them. All Justices of the peace arc entitled to a copy of the Digest and the acts ol' the General As sembly free, and the last legisla lure, we believe, passed a law providing for the distribution of : a suillcicut number to each coun ty clerk to place one in the hands of each Justice in his county. We understand our county clerk has made application lor a sutli eient number for this county, and as soon as they are published, we presume they will be forwarded. Why they have not been ready before now, wo cannot say. It costs considerably to have these i documents published and as the - state is impoverished and has had ! no funds in the treasury, perhaps . it has been impossible to get > them published and ready for dis tribution. ’ It is to be hoped that we will ■ soon get in a better condition so i that things can be managed with ' more expedition and greater con ’ venienees afiorded to officials. 1 SCHOOL LANDS. 1 _ Tlie Attorney-General Decides that State Scrip is Receiv able for Them. The following opinion by the attorn eigen oral, ^ in answer to a i letter from tne commissioner of state lands, will be found of gen eral interest: Office Attorney-General,| Little Hock, May 7, in*5. I Hon. J. N. Smithee, Commissioner of immi gration ami State Lands: Dear Sir: In reply to yours of 5th instant, asking if auditor’s warrants and treasurer’s certifi cates are receivable for sixteenth section, or school lands, I have the honor to say that: Formerly auditor’s warrants were not re ceivable for any debts due the state, nor for any taxes save siatc taxes for general purposes (sees. 2787 and 5107 Gantt’s Digest). But by act of January 7, 1875, the auditor’s warrants drawn under the provisions of that act, were made receivable for all dues and taxes to the state, except interest on the public debt. In English vs. Oliver fmanu script opinion) it is held that treasurer’s certificates are receiv able for “all debts due the state, including hues, forfeitures, es cheats, dues for estrays, for Inter nal improvement lands, seminary lands, school lands and bank lauds.” This, of course, is the law, and will be unless hereafter overruled by the supreme court. By the fifth section of an act approved January 20th, 1875, treasurer’s certificates, issued up on auditor’s warrants—issued on and after the 10th day of Novem ber, 1871, are made “receivable in payment of all debts whatsoever due the state, and all license, or tax levied on the vendors of vin ous or spirituous liquors, and payable into the sinking fund, and for all state taxes whatsoever, ex cept interest on the puMic debt.” The acts of 1809 and 1871, upon which the decision in English vs. Oliver was based, are similar in their provisions to the act of Jan uary 20, 1875, and hence the rea son of that case will apply to this latter act, and it therefore follows that under this decision the new state scrip, or treasurer’s certifi cates issued on warrants dated on or after the 10th of November, 1871, are receivable in payment for these lands. But for this decision I should have been inclined to hold that the school lands were granted to the state of Arkansas in trust, and that the proceeds of the sale of the same constituted a trust fund, and that debts due this fund, or purchase money for these lands, could only be paid “in good and lawful money of the United States,” and are not debts due the state in her own right, but in trust for the school fund, and were not intended by the general assembly to be included as debts which might be paid in treasurer’s cer tificates. We subscribe to the reasoning of Hon. T. D. W. Yon ley upon this question, and think it borne out by the case of Paup vs. Drew, 10 Howard, 222; yet we take off our hat to the supreme court. S. P. Hughes, Attorney General. Afternoon or Nlglit Meetings. Some of the eastern Granges are discussing the propriety of chang ing the time of meetings from evening to afternoon. The change is urged, because of the opportu nity it would afford the older mem bers for attending; also the many sisters who, however desirous they may be of taking part in the pro ceedings of the grange, are not able to leave the children in the evening. The suggestion is cer tainly a very good one—where it is needed. The granges of Cali fornia almost or quite universally hold their meetings on Saturday afternoons. The practice is a good one. The farmer will lose nothing by taking one, or even two days m the mouth, lbr rest, recreation, amusement or instruc- ; tion. lie can do more work in the month by devoting one or two Saturday afternoons to meeting and conferring witji his brother farmers on matters of mutual and practical interest. Looking at the matter in a pecuniary interest alone, he will lie largely the gainer. In a social point of view, the gain will be still greater and more im portant.—Exchange.

If my pen is not wanted I can go back to the type case and be sure to find work; for I learned the printer’s trade thoroughly—news paper work, job work, book work iiHtl press work. I am glad I have a good trade. It is as a rock upon which the possessor can stand firmly. There is health and vigor for both body and mind in an honest trade. It is the strongest and surest part of a self-made man. Go from the academy to the printing office or the artisan’s bench; or, .if you please, to tlfb farm—for, to be sure, true farming is a trade, and a grand one at that. Lay thus a sure foundation, and after that branch off into whatever profession you please. You have heard, perhaps, of the clerk who had faithfully serv ed Stephen Girard from boyhood to manhood. On the twenty-first anniversary of his birthday, he went to his master and told him his time was up, and he certainly expected important promotion in the merchant’s service. Hut i Stephen Girard said to him,— “Very well. Now go and learn a trade.” “What trade, sir?” “Good barrels and butts must be in demand while you live. Go and learn the cooper’s trade; anti when you have made a perfect barrel, bring it to me.” The young man went nway and learned the coopers trade, and in time brought to his old master a splendid barrel of his own make. ' Girard examined it, and gave 1 the ‘maker two thousand dollars ' for it, and then said to him,— "i'iow, sir, I want you tu niy i L'ountiug-rooin; but henceforth I you will not be dependent upon the whim of Stephen Girard. Let I what will conic you have a good trade always in reserve.” 1 The young man saw the wisdom, 1 aid understood. i Years ago, when the middle- l iged men of to day were boys, 1 Horace Greely wrote,— 1 “it is a great source of consola- 1 -ion to us,That when the public 1 diall be tired of us us an editor, 1 we can make a satisfactory li ve-^ < ihood at setting type or farming,' 1 >o that while our strength lasts, < ,en thousand blockheads, taking 1 iffenee at some article they do lot understand, could not drive 1 is into the poor-house.” ?

I .THE GRASSES: The Basis of all Agriculture Prosperity. Pai.arm; Ark., May 10, fcoiTons Gazettk: Having ren several articles in your paper n cently on the subject of the grass es, and regarding them as th basis of all agricultural prosper; ty, I respectfully ask the priviieg of a small space in your column for a few remarks based u[>on in, own personal observation and ex perience. Many years ago I had meadow of several different kinds of grass es at this place, including timothy clover, blue grass, Texas mezquite etc., all of which grew luxuriantly yielding abundant crops, and nf fording fine pasturage for stock but they were destroyed by tin conqucrers of the four years fight The purpose and policy' of the gov eminent established by the gov eminent aforesaid seemed to hi plunder and not to protect the cit izen in his property; this bein' the case, like thousands of othci farmers, your humble correspond ent did not regard it either pru dent or profitable to embark ir any system of culture requiring much outlay’ of money or muscle All we dared to do was to sov enough barley for our own Sub sistence. Previous to the presenl year I had ventured upon sowing eight or ten acres consisting ol clover, orchard grass and red-top or herds grass; all these did well and are still in a flourishing eon dition, promising an abundant harvest the present season. These grasses yielded fine crops of hay last summer, and pastured my calves and sheep through the past winter. By the way, speaking of calves and sheep, among those here re ferred to, I have a Kentucky, short-horn bull seven months old, which will weigli five hundred pounds gross, and two yearling Cotswold Lincolnshire lambs from which I sheared twenty-seven and a half pounds of Wool, of the finest quality. The buck when grown, if as large as Ills sire, will weigh four hundred pounds, and yield a fleece of twenty pounds; and the ewe will also be large. 1 have also some half-breed merino lambs, the fleece of which is superb. Upon the recent glorious tri umph in our state, of popular rights over despotism and ail of its concomitant evils, and the re establishment of good government, based upon that most popular and sacred plank in the old democrat ic platform, that is, that “all well regulated governments derive their just powers from the consent jf the governed,” I was so encour aged that I have sown this year about twenty-five acres in on; in meadow, consisting for the most part of timothy and clover. Up to this time, these look healthy and vigorous, I expect to go for ward in this direction each year, until a large portion of the land 1 uave heretofore planted in cotton s sown in the grasses herein men tioned. Any of the Arkansas river bot oin lands, not too sandy, will pro luce blue grass, clover and tim >thy. The uplands will all pro luce these grasses in abundance >y adding a little lime to their ■omposition. Bed top or herds [rnss and orchard grass will grow veil upon our uplands without iuie. Both of these latter will rield fair crops of hay, and or chard grass surpasses any other ;rnss known in this climate for losturage. It remains green, and [rows throughout the entire wili er. A hard freeze will check its frowth a little, but a little moder ation of the weather brings it brth again with renewed vigor, t should always be pastured, or itherwise, it will grow in tussocks, t can be seen growing now on ny farm over two feet in bight .fter being pastured late. Fear of annoying you, Mr. Kd tor, prevents me from writing nore at the present upon the sub set of this, the most valuable of 11 the grasses, especially to the ortion of Arkansas where there 3 so little attention paid to the ulture of the grasses, hut with our permission, I wilt resume his subject at some future time, on vineed, as I am, of its impor niice to your agricultural readers. Is a matter of special interest to his class of readers, I send you crcwith seven spears of blue rass, measuring from live feet, cu and a half incites, down to nur feet, and some little less, fours truly, B.
