I The people of Arkansas arc proving their wisdom in the field; not upon the field of battle, but in the field where honest labor and firm perseverance never goes unrequited. For years I they have bowed before tlie throne ot ' king cotton and acknowledged bis su- j premaev. Hut now they are awaken ing, they sec the extremes to which this allegiance to cotton has carried Un people. and are determined to break the spell that has bound them and serve this cruel master no longer. Let us look upon bis work for a few years past and sec what be has done for us. He has deranuded our constant atten tion in the field, has eaten up onr sub stance by compelling us in our fidelity to him to eschew corn, and lienee buy meat and bread, for which our lands in many eases, and our crops in more, had to mortgaged in advance ; has reduced ns from honest independence to entire depeudeuec—made us dependent upon tho merchant for our meat and bread nt the merchant's price, and upon the buyer to price our cotton at his pleas ure. These things could not always lust; the people of Arkansas are fast learning that cotton is the most despot ic of all monurchs, and everywhere are giving indications that they will not longer be ruled by him. Hundreds of acres of the best land in the State that last year were planted in cotton, are now covered with corn : and we hear from many quarters of farmers regret ting that they planted any cotton at all. The people see that their policy is to raise corn, make at home their meat and bread, and thus raise themselves above that dependence to which cotton has subjected them. The power of cotton is waning fast in this section ; Hiwl mnre limn mice have We heal’d the prediction that in less than ten years Prairie county will not raise fifty hales of cotton. It is as it should be, corn is triumphing, and under his reign pros perity will smile upon us and we will be permitted to enjoy the fruits of our labor. The Registers have closed their work at tliis point and gone to other pre cincts in the county. Everything at tliis plaA passed off quietly, there be ing 221 persons registering, 78 of whom were colored. Now when we consider that the voting white population of While River township is considerably more than the whole number regis tered, the inquiry very naturally sug gests itself, why did not all register that could. Many men have persua ded themselves that all has been done that can be done, and any effort that they may make to secure citizenship or save the State from extreme radical .-.-1 j » ■ -.. ■ - of persons we honestly differ, to us it was and is clearly tho duty of every man to register and secure the voice of one man. at least, when we are called upon at the ballot box to test the questions which, in a short while, will be submitted to us. The quostion, or more properly the election, which will first follow registration, is one of vast importance to every individual citizen of the State of Arkansas. Whether or not we will have a convention to ac cept the conditions of the reconstruc tion bill is a grave question, and should be seriously studied by every citizen. A convention to reject is a convention for no purpose. The question with us is. shall we by our voice accept that w hich w e have so long rejected, or shall we remain as we are. We have sufficient confidence in the people of Arkansas to believe that we write the sentiment of the whole State when we say, no convention for us. We learn w ith no small degree of pleasure that the prejudice existing in various portions of the county against the establishment of a District Court ... n.in ~ . n>i.. pic, looking at this matter considerate ly, can easily see that it is for the good of the whole county. The country in and around DcsArc is well settled, and ttiat, too, with a class of people who have much business at the various courts. To be as inaccessible as they arc now is a great inconvenience, which can alone be remedied by this court.— We h tve spoken of its advantages be fore, and again take occasion to say that tills measure will not at all inter fere with the hopes or wishes of those in extreme portions of the county, while it will lie a convenience an 1 ben efit to those on this side of the prairie. The election will hr liolden on the 6th of July next, and every voter in the county should divest himself of preju dice and vote for this measure, which cannot possibly do hurt to anybody, and wilt, to say the least, do much for the county. In accordance with an old and time honored custom there will lie no paper issued front this office next week. The printers claim one week during the year in which the season will admit their taking a little recreation, in fish ing. hunting, or some otheraiuuseiiteut that will vary the mouotouy of the composing room. Political excitement seems to be at j alow figure in tile older States. Eve rything is quiet save ill Tennessee,, where Etheridge is bombarding Browulow with the same artillery that i tlie preacher politician used on Pryne ' years ago. Elsewhere the people arc busily engaged iu making bread and meat, and have no lime for political ! disturbances. A report says Maximilian has been convicted and sentenced to be shot, with Miramon and Mejia. The com i mandant of the city of Mexico threat ens retaliation If tills sentence is put into execution. Much bltfme is at tached to Napoleon by all parties for hit course toward Maximilian. LETTER JFROM “X." Editor Des Arc Citizen : June ITtli. (! o'clock, r. m. M e are on the train that runs from Memphis to Charleston—quite a crowd hurrying and hustling to get tickets and scats—a storm is gathering and fast advancing, lightnings gleam and i thunders roll, mingled with the rumb ling sounds of omnibuses and hacks; a shrill keen whistle tells that wc are about to move; a jostle of the ears and we are oil'; the wind blows, the rain descends, the thunder roars, but on wc speed—dense, warm, sweating crowd— with no ice, no water aboard. Mre waited, and thirsted, and sweated, hilt had no water till wc got to Grand Junction ; again we saw not and tasted not water, till we got to Decatur, at which pii;fe we tranferred ourselves to the X. & 1). 11. It., with few regrets on leaving the M. & C. train, a- wc found much hotter ears, better scats, better company, and better attention, and plenty of pure, cold, ice water. Little worth noting occurred from Memphis to Decatur, as we traveled most of that route after dark and in the rain. Crops along the road near Memphis arc not promising ; much of the land is thrown out as commons, with no fence around it: weeds, briers and bushes are “gain ing ground,” while those, that once subdued these verdant sovereigns, have gone into Memphis and joined the “LTnion Loyal League,” and washed their hands of the “dirty business ol farming,” and arc preparing to become (not vestal virgins,) but Priests in tIre temple polities!. Crops along the Nashville and Dera tin' I!. It. are the finest l have seen, viz: corn, cotton, wheat, rye, oats and gar den vegetables. It seems the planters have had more time to cultivate the crops up here, as few are in the grass, and the crops give conclusive evidence that they have been well attended. Much excitement prevails in some portions of Middle Tennessee, relative to the efforts of Brownlow and Cuffy's getting the inside track on the people politically. But most of the intelligent reflecting men feel more interest in making meat and bread, than they do in Politics, Browulowites, or Nigger tics. It is rumored to day that William G. by virtue ofliis excellency as Governor, lias issued bis bull and excommunicated the entire county of Giles and several other counties in the State. It is thought that somebody in an unguard ed moment, and by an unguarded ex pression hurt William's feelings, but it is not known yet, who it is that has been so cruel and reckless as to hurt an old man of Divinity, the quondam Preacher and Temperance Lecturer. It is hoped here, that no one will be so j rude as to again wound the feelings of j the old Patriarch, as did the llev. i Prvne once on a time. Brownlow is i afraid that some one like Booth, in or 1 der to become immortal, will attempt to kill him, hence his vigilance. June 19th.—It is wheat harvest here, MVyK SHtWf A'mnSK'tfmT'feVl iVn ; mediately interested in the question of bread, and I believe that includes all, 1 except those that are invisibly fed, or feed themselves at other's expense. Middle Tennessee is certainly in an ' enviable condition, as to cereals and liorticulturals. The health of the people is fine, nev er better. On to-morrow. (20tli.) 1 ex pect to attend the examination of the students of the Mooresville Male and Female College, in Marshall County, i in charge of Prof. A. M. Burney, who lias a large school of young ladies and gents. The 21st is exhibition or com I inenoemont day, and I wish to get there early, lest something might happen that I would "miss seeing.” I am now temporarily stopping near j some fine, pure, clear, cold, bubbling springs, and feel no need of ice. These springs come hurrying up from the base of flic towering hills, as if escaping from a severe superincumbent pressure. 1 love these romantic hills and the pure water tlial well up at their base. June 20th.—It is a lovely day, and at an early hour a large crowd assembled at the Male and Female Institute. The exercises were vaiicu aim proiracieci, interspersed with lively music nt iu . tcrvnls, both vocal and instrumental. At noon the teachers, pupils and crowd all repaired to a lovely grove near one ol' those pure, limpid springs, whose cold, sparkling waters would make Xiobc laugh. The dinner was spread upon the soft green carpet of nature— we mean such a dinner as the Middle Tennesseeans were accustomed in oth er and better days, to spread on such occasions. After dinner the exercises were resumed and continued to a late hour in the afternoon, with apparent satisfaction to all that witnessed them. June 21st.—it is the regular com mencement day—the morning is tine— tlie people ut an early hour are pouring in from every point of the compass— anxious again to see the ball open. The advanced students arc to exhibit to-day —original speeches and compositions, interspersed wih music is the pro gramme—ull of which passed off with credit to both pupils and teachers. This institution seems to he in a flour ishing and healthy condition—eligibly located in one of the loveliest and most healthy parts of Middle Teuuessee— and there is one thing in particular, tiiat I can speak plainly and definitely about, and that is the hospitality, so ciability, and umiableuess of those liv ing at and near this school. May they all live long, and behold their Institute flourishing, for years to come. A****« -Under the present law of Geor gia. indigent maimed soldiers of the State who have purchased artificial limbs, bn their own account, and those who have lost limbs, leaving such stumps as will not admit of artificial limbs being used, are entitled to draw from the State treasury the government price of an artificial limb. -The frieudsof Generals Sheridan und Sickles Imre sent them telegrams giving assurance that they will be sus tained by Congress. The latter lias also been advised to reconsider his de termination of giving up hi* command. IMPORTANT LEGAL DECISION. | Compulsory Payments to Rebel Re* i ceivers No Release. Among the important cases derided by Chief dustier Chase, at Halcigh, was one brought by a Pennsylvania firm against a North Carolina firm, for | the payment of a note given before the war by the latter to the former. It ap pears that the defendants had been compelled to pay the note and interest to the rebel government during the war, under the sequestration act. They | set up the claim that while it existed tlie Confederate government was a i>f. facto government, ami that citizens of those States which did not recognize its authority were aliens, and in time of war alien enemies ; that consequent ly acts of sequestration were valid acts, and therefore that payments to a Con federate agent of debts due to such citi zens. if compelled by proceedings un der those acts, released the debtors from all obligations to the original creditors. This was the first ease of the kind brought lip for decision since the close of the war. and the opinion of Chief Justice Chase was looked for with great anxiety, lie concluded as follows: ‘‘We hold, therefore, that compulsory payment under sequestration arts to rebel receivers of debts due plaintiffs and defendant was no discharge. It is claimed, however, that whatever may he the right of the plaintiffs to recover the principal of the debt from the de fendant, they cannot recover interest for the time during which war prevent ed all communication between the States in which they respectively re sided ; we cannot think so. Interest is the lawful fruit of principal. There are. indeed, some authorities to point that interest which accrued during war between independent nations, cannot he afterwards recovered, though the debt with other interest may lie. Ttnt this rule, in our judgment, is applicable only to such wars. Nor do we per ceive anything in the act of tlio 13th July, 1861, which suspended for a time all intercourse between the loyal and insurgent portions of the country, that warrants its application to Hie case before us. Legal rights could neither he originated nor he defeated by the action or control of the authorities of the late rebellion. The plaintiff must have judgment for principal and inter est of the debt, without deduction.” Fate of Maximilian and Mexico. * * Tho sympathy naturally extend ed to a brave man struggling with mis fortune, is reviving in some quarters a line of comment only explicable hv the forgetfulness of its authors. The ICm t.orni' At v ini itmn leii'inir failed, ns fill who were capable of taking a calm view of the facts three years ago fore saw and predicted he would fail, an at tempt is made to make some one res ponsible for that result. Sometimes the American Government and some times the French people are blamed. It is quite forgotten that the Empire was broken down by its own weight. The published dispatches of M. Druyn de L'hnys prove this. The French army did all that an army could do. D emi ! quered and held its conquests. Hut Maximilian could not establish his Government. Ho plunged enormously into debt, exhausted bis credit, and was at last obliged to call the general of the 1 French army to advance money out of the military chest. The French people bore with marvelous patience the Mex ican drain upon her resources; but at last tlie Emperor was compelled to ac - knowledge that it would lie wrong to ' call upon them to make further sacri fices for the sake of the Mexican Km wliieh had from the first warned that of France that it could not establish a European Prince on the throne of Mex ico, at the same time interfered, but more to secure that result to which Maximilian was only adding the hor rors of foreign war to those of intense anarchy, and he had introduced the bar barous practice of shooting in cold blood, prisoners taken in regular war. No responsibility is ineured by putting an end to his inlerferanee iti the allairs of a country which lie might uillict with new curses, but which he was powerless to benefit. As far as the prospect of a re-establishment of peace and good government arc concerned, Mexico remains pretty nearly where it was before tlie French expedition. The causes of its disorders He too deep to bo removed by the sword of conquest, and will probably last until the time has come for the introduction of a new | population of a nobler race than that which now engrosses a country it is unable lo develope, and which seems j incapable of founding any stable order of society.—London News. Accounted For.—The sudden break down of impeachment at Washington took many persons by surprise. The ! cause operating in favor of tbo Presi dent has been accounted for in various ways. This, from a Baltimore paper, will strike the reader as singularly [ characteristic of the party: "YVo sus pect that one of tho strongest reasons for not urging impeachment at this time is that if lieu \Vadc cot into the Presidential chair he could not be got out until 1N72. This would spoil the little plaits of Colfax Co., for the nomination in l.stiri. We have always believed that if Mr. Fessenden had been elected Vice President instead of Wade, the President would have been impeached, for Mr. Fessenden would not have been in anybody's way In 1 Stirs. Certain it is, tlmt men who, but the day before, wore tierce for impeach ment, no sooner did they it ml Mr. Wade the Vice President than they turned around and became eminently conservative or openly against that measure. Curiously enough, all the gentlemen thus affected were either candidates for the Presidency or ex pected to be. One of them, when asked by a friend about it. and who no doubt represented the views of the others, said: 'Well, Sir. 1 was for im peachment. but when old Ben Wade was elected Vice President T went ugainst it, for you know t have some ambition.’ and if that old devil ever gets into the Presidential chair, we can t get him out until he dies.' ” X'o Convention.—The Mobile Trib une takes tills view of the duty of the people of A labamn : To seek safety by reconstruction, so-called, under the Radical prog lam me, is like plunging into the sea to get out of a shower; or to use a more familiar illustration, jumping out of the frying pan into the lire. Our only hope of salvation lies in the Overthrow of the Radical party, not In entering the ranks of that party, torrh in hand. To adopt the recon struction (so-called) aimed at by the Sherman bill, is to all intents and pur poses, to enlist under Radical colors. Our neighbor, the Times, in an article yesterday, headed "From Black to Red,' demonstrated very clearly the Inevita ble tendency of Radical measures. Of! these measures, reconstruction uud'r the Sherman bill, is the very filie du regiment of the Radical chasseurs,; the net measure of general s:ul private ; the black liarlot whose womb is pregnant with a litter of red fiends.
