Aii Unexpected Note ol'Prog ress. It was only last year that the unhappy political condition of Arkansas enlisted the sympathies of right minded people all over the country, and gave occasion to most serious apprehension that the state would lie plunged into i lie horrors of a general civil war. To day Arkansas stands among the foremost of the States which lia.'c set in motion their recuper ative energy, and have lifted themselves out of the slough of despond by their own effort. The people of Arkansas have not a i little reason to take credit to themselves for what they have accomplished in the face of so many adverse circumstances, and the determination which they still manifest shows that they are resolved to follow out the career which their judgment dictated when the clouds were darkest about them. I A recently published address delivered by Governor Garland ” u‘ tlio I? (JUitr urrOhuntT A^ri cultural and Mechanical Associa tion makes a showing of the prog ress of the State, and a present prosperous condition which would i>o creditable to the most liighly i* favored State in the Union, and coining from a State which only ten years ago passed through the vicissitudes of the great civil war, . which for years after the war suf fered immeasurably, not only from a sudden revolution in its labor system and means for producing the crop to which its whole people were accustomed and which was its main reliance, but was com pletely prostrated oy political disturbances and domestic civil commotion, is an episode in the history of that people which lias few parallels in the experience of the world. The endeavor which caused such a change of condi tion must nave been tnc result ol earnest reflection, anil the reflec tion which led to such endeavor taught the people of Arkansas two facts which they had been some what inclined to ignore, viz.: that political agitation is not remuner i ative, and that because one field of industry can not, under a changed state of affairs, lie profit ably cultivated, other fields are not open to industry. While Arkansas is not neglect ing her cotton, she lias found that there arc other staples that prom ise reward to her husbandmen. This new range of agricultural i industry lias produced a demand for a wider area of tillable lands, and Governor Garland points with unaffected pride to the fact that every county in the Slate has in the past year added largely to its cultivated lands, while some half dozen which lie mentions have added as much as live thousand acres each, while one has added over eleven thousand acres. He tells us that small grain, hereto fore almost neglected, has been sown, and the results have been a surprise to every one; that large vineyards, a business heretofore scarcely known in She State, have been and are being opened and cultivated, with every prospect of handsome remtiucratipu in a short time, and that last summer fruits, vegetables and grain were sent to St. Louis, Chicago and other points—a thing never done before —with most satisfactory returns for them. One lawyer in Little Hock, the governor tells us, sent seventeen car-loads of watermel oils to ( hicugo, and confessed that his outlay and labor brought a better return than his cotton and law together. Behind all this lies a theory. It is the interdependence of what the political economists call trails mutation, transformation and transportation, and which Bacon long since indicated in more pop ular language when he said: “Those tilings which make a Jiu J, I IB tion great anil prosperous are a fertile soil, busy work-shops, anil easv conveyance of men and tilings from place to place.” Gov ernor Garland presents the same idea when he argues that there is no real antagonism between the interests of manufacture and agri culture and systems of transporta tion, and declares that the aggre gate prosperity of manufactures and the aggregate prosperity of agriculture arc intimately con nected, and the new constitution of Arkansas recognized the same unity of interest in providing for a single bureau to take in charge the several and united interests of mining, manufacture and ag riculture. From being an object of commiseration Arkansas lias suddenly become an exemplar of industry and progress even to some of the elder States. She has simply turned her face to the front, and Governor-Garland ex pressed the sentiment which has given her this new and unlooked for impulse when lie declared in his address: “My friends, we can not stand still, nor caiv we go backward. We must press for ward and onward. It is a dav ol advancement and improvement; change is written upon every thing; and old things and old ideas are passing away and giving place to new owes.” —N. O. Picayune. Arkansas lteilivivns. From the New York Sun.] The extraordinary recuperative power which has been exhibited by the people of Arkansas, since their release from the grasp ol Grant’s plunderers, is a wondei even to themselves. Less than s year ago they were in acouditior i bordering on despair, mieina dissensions, amounting almost t< civil war, prevailed in all parts ol the state; the most intent hostility existed between the white am African race, and the president had insolently threaten to use the United States army to overthrow their legal government and tin new eonsituation which the,pcoph had adopted by an overwhelming majority. Trade and industries of all kinds wore puralized, and s feeling of intense depression pe-i vailed every class ol the commu nity. Bnt the last congress, tin scrupulous as it was, lulled ti sanction tins revolutionary scheme of Grant's, and Arkansas was permitted to retain the exer I eise of self government. As w< ' have said, the result have beoi: - amazing. The legisloture, acting I under the judicious advice of Gov | Garland and other conservative I leaders, took measure to repaii the ravages of the carpet-baggers which have elicited commend ation faom even there enemies while the people, released wen work with n will Xo mend theii shattered fortunds: and ta ay Ar kansas is amonge the most pros I porous of the reconstructed states ■ In an cdilress recently deliveroc before the WoodrufT county Agri cultural association, Gov. Garlam shows that every county in tin state has in the past year adder largely to its cultivated lands, sev oral of them as much as 500( acres each, and one of then 11,000. Small grain, heretofori almost entierly neglected, has been extentsively sown. Largi vinyards have been planted, aiu last summer great quantities o fruits and vegetables werh seni | to St. Louis, Chicago and otliei points—a thing never done be ! fore—with most satisfactory returns for them. We learn from other authentic sources that the most hopeful feeling now brevaih among all classes throughout tin state, and that with the discorn liture of the carpet baggers al trouble between the races ceased Indeed, the cordial relations nov existing botween the whites anc the blacks arc perhaps greatei cause for astonishment than al the rest.

Books and newspapers encour age—almost create—a thirst for knowledge in children. It is far easier to give a child a practical educatitn with six months' school ing per year, with plenty of read ing matter at home, thau it is with . ten months’ schooling and no books and newspapers in your bouse. This is no fancy, hut a • positive fact; and yet how many parents there are who will spare no reasonable expense in sending their children to school, but if asked to subscribe for a news paper, will answer “I cannot atford it!” How stupid and in consistent. The truth is, they cannot alford to do Without it. Children who are fond of read ing very seldom seek other amusements away from home. Who would not prefer that his boy should sit reading by tho (ire at home than roaming rbout where lie is almost sure to fall into bad company and acqnire pernicious habits? Take a good assortment of papers, anil let every one in the house have free access to them. , Don’t he particular about their lying scattered about. When you have a few spare moments . you are almost sure to be reading one if in reach. Above all things, let them “muss” over, bat)} and all, for children who are brought up among books and newspapers rarely injure one. lint woe be unto either that hap pens to fall into the hands of a i family wheie they are a rarity! You might as well drop gun powder upon a red hot stove and expect to pick it up, as to look for that book or paper again. Never make a practice of bor rowing papers, it lias been truly said that “a newspaper is like a wife, because every man should have one of his own.” l’ay for your paper and it will read easier, and be a great deal more entertaining and instruct-;J ive.—At all events, do not ask to borrow mine. There is always great pleasure in sending a book to a reading person, but it is very distasteful to have one fall into the bauds of those “Ishraaelites” who read about one book in two years. Newspapers, in particular, were not printed 16 lend. They are too perishable and frail. I A man who pays $2 per year for a paper, and cannot get that amount Of benefit from it, “is either a mighty poor reader, or else is reading a mighty poor paper”—N. Hitter, in Country Gentleman. A day or so ago the daughter of a German grocer in Rochester, . N. Y., was married. Her father, with pride and a spice of humor, ; placed a placard in the window, bearing this device: “This store , is closed on account of some fun ■ in the family.” “I want you all to understand ' that there is to be no levity on the. stage to-night,” said the man-, arfer of a cjfty theatre to the super- '• nurnernries as the curtain was rung up. “What’s a levity, BillV” asked one supernumerary of an other. “Oh,” said the other, “I don’t know. Suppose it's a cross ’tween a farce and a comedy!” PROFESSION A I. <JA RI >S. W. C. FORD, Att^y £vt Xiaw9 AND SOLICITOR IN CHANCERY, ttuMftcUvillc,-Ark. J5®**Ofktce—Over J. B.
