DES ARC:
SATURDAY..JUNE 29, 1867.
Take Notice.—That George McLaren
is still at the old stand, with n good assort
ment GENTS’ CLOTHING, at remarka
ble low prices, for cash only. jun8
Hay-Dr. S. G. Allen would have the
people know that his office is now on
Ilucna Vista St., next to J M. Burney’s
Drug Store, where he can be consulted by
all in need of his services.
Chops.—The corn crop in this section
is very promising, considering the lateness
of the season. Cotton is looking very
well, and farmers generally express the
opinion, that the prospect is much better
than last year.
fttT.V considerable number of our citi
zeu* are in attendance upon the examina
tion of the Hickory Plain Male and Fe
male Academy- They will doubtless, have
a nice time, as this is a splendid school and
nice neighborhood. We expect a report
next week.

*6rWe have just received a copy of
the White County Jlceord, and one of the
Jaeksonport Herald, bearing date June
15th. Wonder why it is, that our up
river exchanges will" always go to Mem
phis before stopping with us ? Can you
tell, Lynn ? Can you Frolich ?

vant. These gentlemen arc thorough
Physicians —understanding well their pro
fession—and deserving the confidence of
the people. They will promptly answer
all calls, and can be found at their office
at all times, when not professionally en
gaged. __
a*tf* We call attention to the advertise
ment of Wheeler A Wilson’s sewing ma
chine in another column. This machine
stands unrivaled for beauty of stitch and
durability of seam. All who have them
pronounce them the best in use, and worth
to any one the price for which they are
sold in the labor saved in one year. Those
needing one of these machines can obtain
full information regarding price and use,

Street, Memphis, Tcnn.
Notice.—The gentleman who charged
me publicly of saying that I had been in
the “Yankee army,” wiil be kind enough
to take back said charge, as I have never
been in said army, and never said that I
had; and upon inquiry, will find that you
are mistakeu in the inau, as l happen to
have papers to show to the contrary. I
remain, in justice to all men.
Very respectfully. Ac..

Jfctf-The examination of Res Arc Male
nn l Female Academy came off on yester
day and the day before. We were not
present, but from those who were, we
learn the affair passed oft’ pleasantly—the
scholars acquiring themselves creditably,
in all their exercises—giving evidenoc
that they, with their teacher, have not
been idle during the past session. Of the
closing exercises last night we are not able
to speak, having gone to press before a
report could be made; but from what had
gone before, wo doubt not that all parties
were satisfied. Too much praise cannot
he accorded to Mr. II. R. Perry for his
effort to build up a first class school in our
town ; he has labored against much oppo
sition, and his success is a strong argument
in favor of his ability as a teacher.
Grand Tournament.—The citizens
of Res Arc propose having a grand tilt, on
the 20th day of July; the successtul
Knight winning as a prize a fine saddle,
and the privilege of crowning the “Queen
of Rove and Beauty.” The next in order
gaining other valuable prizes. The pro
ceeds of entrance and admission fees to
be appropriated to refiting the Masonic
llall of White River Lodge at this place.
This will be a fine opportunity for the
gallants of this section to show themselves
nut inferior to those of older States, w here
entertainments of this kind have been a
great success; besides the prizes offered.
... who would not draw his lance for the
■ privilege of laying the crown upon liis
sweethearts head, and proclaiming her
beauty’s Queen. Tlic object for which
this Tournament is gotten up is indeed
laudable, and every one should render all
the assistance in their power. Many of
| the most distinguished citizens of the
■ State arc invited and it is expected will he
present, and every effort on the part of the
I managers will be made, to insure an en
tertainment worthy of liberal patronage

RIVER NEWS, JvEATHER, ETO.
The weather for the past several days
lias been delightful—a sufficient rain hav
ing fallen in the earlier part of the week
to revive vegetation, and lend additional
hope to the farmer that his toil wdl not
this season he in vaiu.
The river is falling steadily at thh

NEW ORLEANS.
New Ori.eans. June 24.—AA'e have
dates from Quervtaro and San Lnis to
the 11th, and Monterey 17th, via Gal
veston. It is reported that n9 soon an
Marquez learned of the sale and deliv
ery Qucrotaro by Lopez, be opened the
documents left with him by Maximil
ian. Amongst them he found one in
which he abdicated in favor of young
Iturbide. Marquez immediately pro
claimed Iturbide etnperor, under re
treucy of the Empress Oarlotta. He
also arrested thirty of the most notable
liberals and imprisoned them as host
ages for the lives of Maximilian and
his companions.
There is no authority for the denial
of the Emperor's proclamation, pub
lished last week.
It is still believcclthat Yernini, stated
to be Maximilian’s counsel, lias been
refused the request for thirty days time
to prepare, and that he had been sen
tenced. It is also rumored that he has
been executed. Nothing authoritative
to this effect though. Alvercz, impe
rial, would only surrender at Quereta
ro upon honorable terms. Terms ot
the capitulation state that the surren
der was made in accordance with the
established usages of nations, Martinez,
the liberal general, agreeing to these
terms, and placed in arrest. Arms and
munitions was restored to Alvercz.
AVhat was to tollow was not stated.
The marine corps wAs not shot, as has
been stated, but was murdered while
lying in the hospital at Qncretaro. By
last mail it is stated that Marquez com
menced executing the hostages, and had
shot two, names not given. The death
of Mendez has been continued. All
foreign prisoners are en route for Mon
terey, numbering four or live thousand
Austrians, Belgians and French.
WASHINGTON.
Washington, June 24.—During Sur
ratt's trial Judge Fisher read the opin
ion of the court overruling the motion
submitted by defense Saturday, asking
illation. The defense noted an excep
tion. and Merrick desired to file an affi
davit bearing upon the same matter,
but the counsel for prosecution object
ed, and the court said the affidavit
should have been filed before the opin
ion was delivered. Dr. J. F. May tes
tified to his identification of the body
of Booth by a scar on the neck, occa
sioned by surgical operation perform
ed by himself; Jno. Cirenovald recog
nized prisoner by a frequent visitor to
his house. John M. Iiloyd testified that
Surratt and Atzerott concealed two
guns, a rope and monkey-wrench under
a joice in the upper room of the house
occupied by him. It was stated that
Mrs. Surratt told him to have the
shooting irons ready as they would be
called for soon. His testimony was
thrown out. After recess Lloyd was
cross-examined at length. The defense
questioned him so as to show that he
had a habit of drinking and was for
getful, and had forgotten many things
that had transpired, the whole object
being to show that the witnesses mem
ory was not to be relied upon. The
court then adjourned.
The department of state has been in
formed by Commissioner Beckwith,

Paris, there have been awards in favor

Maximilian's Farewell Address.
Countrymen:—After the valor and
patriotism of the Republican forces
have destroyed my sceptre in this place,
of which a tenacious defence was in
dispensable to save the honor of mv
cause and of my race; alter the bloody
scigein which the Imperial and Repub
lican soldiers have been compared in
abnegation and boldness, I will explain
myself. Countrymen, 1 came to Mexi
co not only animated with the best faith
of in«nring tho felicity of all and each
of us. but called and protected by the
Emperor of France, Napoleon 111! lie.
to tiic ridicule of France, abandoned
me, cowardly and infamously, by de
mand of the Cuitod States, after hav
ing uselessly spent forces and treasure,
and shed the blood of her sons and
vour own. When the news of my fall
and death reaches Europe, alt the men
arehaof Charlemagne’s eomi try will de
mand of the Nupoleonie dyuasty an
, account bf my blood, of the German
and French blood shed in Mexico.
Then will Napoleon 111. be covered
with shame from head to foot. To-day
he lias already seen his Majesty, Em
peror of Austria, my august brother,
praying for my life to the United States
and myself a prisoner of war in the
hands of ttie Republican government,
and with my crown on my head torn
in pieces. Countrymen, here are my
last words: I desire that my blood may
, regenerate Mexico, and serve asa warn
ing to all ambitious and incautious
! Princes, and that you will act with pru
dence and truthfulness, and ennoble
i witli your virtues the political cause of
the flag you sustain. ,
May Providence save you and make
you worthy of myself.
(Signed.) Maximilian.

For restoring hair upon bnld heads, (from
! whatever cause it may have fallen nut) and
forcing a growth of hair upon the face, it has
no equal, it will force the beard to grow
upon the smoothest face, in from five to eight
weeks, or hair upon bald heads in from two
to three months. A few ignorant praclition
I prs have asserted that there is nothing that
[ will force or hasten the growth of the hair or
j heard. Their assertions arc false, as thous
ands of living witnesses (from their own ex
perience) can boar witness. But many will
say. how are we to distinguish the genuine
from the spurious ? It certainly is difficult,
as nine-tenths of the different Preparations
advertised for the hair and beard are entirely
worthless, and you may have already thrown
away largo amounts in their purchase. To
such we would say, try llio Beparntor Capilli; j
it will cost you nothing unless it fully conies
up to onr representations. If your Druggist!
does not keep it. send us one dollar and wc
will forward it, postpaid, together with a re

Dr. John Boll,,— Dear Sir.—Gratitude to
you, as well as a sense of duty to the public,
requires that I should give you a statement,
for public use, of the great benefit I have de
rived from the use of your “Cedron Bitters.”
After a military service of thirteen months
embracing the Pea Ridge campaign and battle.
I was discharged from the service and came
borne to die. Dyspepsia, liver complaint, and
general debility were fast hurrying me to the
grave, and every remedy prescribed by physi
cians seemed only to aggravate my diseases.
About four weeks ago 1 was fortunate enough
to procure your “Cedron Bitters.” ami by the
use of them alone I have been restored to per
fect and robust health. 1 can most earnestly
recommend them as being all, and more than
all, than they are represented to be. You are
at liberty to make any use you wish of this
statement.
