It is a lamentable fact thatjtoo many men yield to ttie downw%r(t pressure of adversity and become lost to usefull ness in society, and the world, when in the least degree unfortunate, or as they term it, unlucky. Particularly in in these times, when adverse winds arc blowing heavily npon us. do we And mon who, because of national difficul ties and individual misfortunes, are ready to give up all hope of ever re trieving fortune, or extricating them selves from political or financial em barrassment. Their argument is, Times are so hard, money so scarce, political prospects so gloomy, that it is useless for a man to try to do anything for himself or anybody else. We are free to confess that we don't like this kind of philosophy. There is no real man hood in a course of this kind. Our country now needs men as much as it needs money; not creatures formed and fashioned like men only, but strong, active men ; men that will look adversity in the face, and witli stout hearts determine to do their best, at all events, to do something. Kcsolute men, who will wrestle with misfortune with nn unconquerable determination to overcome. Dive us a community of this kind of men, and regardless of po litical darkness and financial depres sion we will work to prosperity. There are too many men who, in idleness and seeming indifference, arc disposed to wait for something to turn up that will make times better and themselves more prosperous. This is the class of men who most bemoan our political condition, and who arc most ready to suggest improvement. It is by the mouths of these men that every educa tional or agricultural policy is con demned. Their only policy seems to be to wait; they have learned to waif ; hut, alas 1 they have not learned to la labor, without which waiting will do us no good, lie can only afford to wait who works, and the man must work, and hard, too. who expects in waiting to see improvement for him self and country. To these grumbling unfortunates wo say, quit this unprofitable waiting and growling and go to work. What if times arc hard ? you need not by idle ness and inactivity make them worse. Beside, times were never so hard, nor will they ever be that a man, if he be a man, cannot live. We of th3 South have suffered enough to be strong; it is time we were proving our strength. The South needs that strength; it is needed in Arkansas: Dcs Arc needs it, your family demands it. You owe it to yourself to he a man, a strong man—in determination, in resolution, in purpose, in honesty a stt-oug man. Let us all quit specula ting about what will he, and work things up to" what we would have them be. W'o repeat the South needs men, Arkansas needs men, we want men in Des Arc. Young man, quit loafing aud be a man ; a man to dare, a man to do. Do something; if employment can't be had in the counting-room, go to the field. At all events go to work, work every one of you twelve months, and then if with you times are not bet ter than now, don't take our advice auy more- , Northern Creditor* vs Southern Debtors. We take the following article from the M issouri Democrat: “An intcring suit has just been decided by the United States Supreme court, which is of importance as touching the claims of Northern creditors upon per sons in the South fur debts contracted be fore the rebellion. The case, which came up on appeal from a Circuit court in Arkansas, was an action on a contract between citizens of New Hampshire and a citizen of Arkansas , and the question pre sented to the decision of the Supreme court was, whether the time during which the courts of Arkansas were closed on ac count of the rebellion, is to be excluded from the computation of the time fixed by the statute of limitations, wilhiu which suits on contract may be brought. “The Arkansas court gave judgment for the plaintiffs, ruling that the action was covered by the statute. The Supreme court, on appeal of the defendant, held that between citizens of two States at war all debts are suspended, and also the statute of limitations; and that the late rebellion having been declared to be a civil war, and to give bcligerent rights to the parties, carried with it all the incidents thereto, aud suspended the statute of lim itations between citizens of two of our States, one in rebellion and the other not. “By this decision the judgment of the inferior court is sustained and an import ant principle is established." -A desperado named Frank I.em berdiue, who was pardoned out of the penitentiary by Hrow#ow, stabbed a man named Ichleiger at Nashville, last Suu Jay, on a slight provocation, causing instant death.

A'other rebel OUtl'Hg* ' CONGRESSIONAL. i In the Senate Monday, the reading j yf the Journal Was dispensed with, ami*' , the Ohiet Justice slated the question ( before the Court to be on the motion , allowing as many of the managers and j , and counsel to participate in the final; . debate as may wish to do so. Sums®!' ofliw -d an amendment that no further postponement should he | caused thereby, which was accepted. Several other amendments relative to ( the number who should close, and the length of time to be occupied by each, were made. Mr. Stanbery paid the counsel for the defense were strongly opposed to the limitation of time in the final argument. Butler intimated that he would not take advantage of a chance to speak. Evarts said the result of the proposi tion as it now stands would give six managers against four of the counsel on the closing argument. Drake made a point of order. Ihat the Senate, sitting as a court, could not hike such action. The point was over- ■ ruled, and the vote taken, resulting 38 to 10. So the rule remains unchanged. The examination of Gen. Sherman was then resumed. Stanbery asked : “After the restora tion of Stanton, did you torin an opin ion as to your disability to servo, or as to the good ol'the service, by the other of Secretary of War being filled by i another man than Stanton ? And if so, [ did you express your opinion to the j President?” Objection was made mid. argued by Bingham, and after the dis cussion the yeas and nays were taken, and resulted' 15 to 36; so the question was not admitted. Johnson asked the question, whether before the removal of Stnntiou he had advised the President that he (Stanton) should bo removed or replaced ? The Chief Justice said the court must decide whether the question should be put. and the Senate decided in the negative, by 18 to 32. Stanbery then said he had no more questions to ask Gen. Sherman. 1 lit: INilllumi 3 UtiVlim 'I ‘ VI uno ■ .-V amine him, and the court took a recess ] at 2-10 a. m. On reassembling U. G. Meigs, Clerk of the District, Supreme | Court, testified that he had affixed the seal to the warrant for the arrest, of Gen. Thomas about two o’clock on the morning of February 22d; Hill, of Missouri, brought it to him at his house. In answer to Butler, he said he had called on me an hour before in a case of pressing necessity. Stanbery then o fib red to put in evi dence the warrant and the affidavit of Stanton on which it was issued. Butler objected to its reception. Evarts said they related to the same subject on which the managers had in troduced testimony, and that the Presi dent’s counsel intended to show that ho took advantage of the proceedings com menced by Stanton, ns the speediest, method of 'bringing the question before the Supreme Court. Butler argued to the effect Hint intro during these papers would bring up new grounds of controversary irreio-: vant to the case. Stanbery referred to the fact that the declaration of General Thomas had been admitted as a declaration of the President, to prove his design in em ploying force, and went on to recite the circumstances attending the dis charge of General Thomas, which he said they would show was in order to prevent the President testing the ques tion. The evidence would also show that General Thomas was not regarded is a great criminal by those who pro- j cured his arrest. Butler rejoined, and then the Chief Tustico ruled that the warrant and affi- 1 advit were admissible, and on taking the yeas and nays his ruling was sus- ; lained by 34 to 17. Mr. Evarts then read the document, 1 and Stanbery resumed the examina tion. The warrant was issued in the Cham- j hers; lias not the warrant book with him. Senator Sherman then offered to put the question to Gen. Sherman : "When the President tendered you the office of Secretary of War ad interim, on January 29th and 30th, ISOS, did he, at the time of making such tender, state what his purpose was?” The question was objected to and submitted to (lie Senate, and resulted —voas, 26; nays, 22. So the question | was put, and answered “yes. Mr. Johnson then offered an addi tional question: “Will you state what he said iiis purpose was?” which was objected to, and the Chief Justice ruled that the question was admissible, as it tended to show the import of the President's action : and in expressing his opinion remarked that this Court was not bound by the same restrictive | a different character. The yeas and nays resulted lit) to 25. So the ques tion was put aud answered: “The conversations were long. The President told me that the relations he- ] tween him and Stanton were such that . he could not have the office adminis-1 tcred properly in the interest of the i army aud the whole country, while he \ held the position as Secretary of War, and in the desire to promote and care for those interests, the President said, he offered me the position as Secretary ail interim." Witness said he then asked the Presi dent why he did not have a case made up by his lawyers, so as to bring about , a ebanoe without involving him (wit ness,) an officer in the army, in the matter. The President replied that it could . not be done; but if it could, Stanton’s case would not stand an hour. Staitbery—Have you answered as to what occurred on both occasions? Objected to on the ground that the witness had been dismissed from the ; stand, and that therefore his examina tion could not be resumed. The Chief Justice ruled that it could be, and a decision of the Court being called for. a debate ensued between Butler and Kvarts. The former, iu the courso of his re marks, having by his tone and manner in saying that the question was put by the Senator front Maryland not us counsel for the President, though he seemed to insinuate t.he contrary, Senator Johnson rose, and in a very emphatic and nervous manner, repell ed the insinuation, adding that he regarded it his solemn duty as a Sena tor to put the question. Butler insisted that he intended no sarcasm, and Mr. Johnson expressed himself satisfied. Mr. Stanbory theu continued the argument in defense of the claim that the counsel had the right to continue the examination. Bingham followed, and in the course of his argument, suid the testimony of the witness so far was injurious to the President, and his counsel wished to h sross-examine, in the hope ol eliciting something better, and maintained, at somo length, that it was in the power j jf the President to get a decision on '' judicial questions by means of a quo 11 warranto. Kvarts remarked that they were per-' fectly satisfied with the evidence given j by the witness, »ud Bingham coitiln-1 led, after speaking with great earnest- i ness. The Chief Justice again expressed i ilie opinion that the witness could an- j swer. Senator Johnson—Have you answer- ,' ed aa to both ocoasiou ? Witness said at the first interview tc was said by the elf; at the second • sidaut expressed a visli to havffHjkpustitiitioiiality of lie Tenn e-of s.w decided, and '-<• said to witn n A at if lie occupied he position as S' rotary id interim, H inton would i. ■■ e n , si-tance, be auae he knew hi n to be cowardly, ['he w i in no no- live answer, >ut sent it in wi i itig. Senator Hi-ndei ■ ! the Presi lent on either ore -i cpri ss a linn letermination ,to remove Stanton? Witness—The It cut never ex ircsscd any intention to use force, but ici'ined determined that their relations dioiild cease. Senator Howard—Wbat did the [’resident say about force? * The wituei- i*' i . ited what lie bad mid before In relation to the President’s relief that Stanton would make no re dstance. Senator Henderson—Did yon give he President any advice on this sub iOCt ? The Senate, without a division, refus 'd to admit it. The managers then lotlfied Gen. Shenman that thev would •cquire his presence in the morning, mil he left the stand Mr. Meigs was then recalled, and rrodneed the docket book, from which ic read the Warrant and affidavit in the ■Hanton-Thomas case, and the Court, it 4 : 40, adjourned.

Some of llie moat intelligent Ger nane are greatly disgusted with the oolish extravagance in dress so com unn in this country among all classes, md particularly among the industrial lortiou. It is very different in Europe. Tlie following letter will be read with ntcrest: Mister Brintkr: I have some trou ilcs I want to tell you.

Many, very fanny persons, ble.-sed with the organs of vision, sel dom or never enjoy this unrivalled dis play of nature’s glory revealed every ' twenty-four hours. Homer and Milton, | the world’s boast in poetry, in the zen j itli and glory of their labors, were de nied the boon vouchsafed to millions who never appreciate or enjoy it. To j behold the rising sun; all the animal , as well as vegitable kingdom seems to i hail with joy and delight the ushering | forth of the great king of day ; the T.ark ; flics up and poises in 8ther, to chant 1 and warble his softest, sweetest notes; i yea, the forests echo with numerous i songsters of every note, while every ! animal signifies his delight by noise or movement. These creatures, in obe dience to the laws of instinct, for ages, exemplify the purpose of the Creator; while xuan with all his boasted philos ophy and powers of reason, lazily and sluggishly claims n little more sleep and a little more slumber—too soou to rise, the couch is so pleasant; and in this way many men seldom or never see the sun rise. They keep late hours, (not attending to any legitimate or ; lawful business,) but in spreeing and dissipating till 12 orl o’clock, and turn into their couch till 8 or 9 o clock the ensuing day, with red eyes, dull slug , gish movements, and occasionally a j headache. In this way many poor spe cimens of philosophy, learning and professions, pass years wifhout ever seeing one sun rise. Hut worst of all, these pretended wiseacres will tell you tnattn tni9 malarious region me a.is phere early in the morning is heavily charged with miasma; consequently, it is not prudent to stir too early in the morning. Query I How do you suppose these modern Philosophers ever found out that the air early in the morning is impure or unhealthy ? did they get this idea from rending standard authors; surely they did not gain it from expe rience or practical demonstration. An other query! Do you find men of such habits succeed in business or in any professional pursuit. Arc such men and women the ones that merchants feel free to indulge or to trust, for good. Are these not the ones whom the con stables and sheriffs find it their duty to visit with little hope of realizing the ready! X.... The People'.* Forbearance. What is now being perpetrated in this country by the Radicals is the work of such an odious and despicable ty ranny, triat a decent man would rather be the victim than the inflicterthereof. I Perhaps this is not a sentiment result 1 ing from that great evangelical virtue i which knows now to find comfort even j in the most desponding condition, nor . is it the outcry of despair to palliate a ; belief in the inability of tho country tc free itself from this despotism- For wc do not intend to make our friends be ! Here that, we are so tender-hearted as i to prefer unjust suffering ourselves to a deserved chastisement of our enemies, 1 nor do we for a single moment doubt the approach of tho time when the 1 country will shake off its burden. Hut we mean to say that ail tho momentary advantages which the ruling party may draw from its cruel dominations are such a miserable equivalent for the odium incurred by Hint party, that the licople can a thousand times better hear for a while to be the victims of that iu : iquity tliau accomplices in its perpetm i lions. Were it not a forsaken party, hut the people themselves, laying tho axe to the root of our Constitution; were it not tho few, but the many, disgracing their country by the present mock-trial of tho President; were it not those on ly who call themselves tho reprosonta i tives of tlie people, but a veal majority of this nation who insult the conquer ed Southern States by imposing the rule of a degraded barbarous race over their own kind—we might admit that wo were reaching the last of this Re public, and that the Government which we once thought the hope of mankind is nothing but nn immense despotism. For if tire people themselves were directly responsible for what is now imiiwv nn tvn nrmilfl llftf. PVPM fPV to l‘\’« tenuato their crimes by stating them as 1 resulting from a transitory disease or aberration of mind. What may be just ly attributed to a transitory ailment in ! individuals is always tho symptom ol : the incipient decadence of nations. When the Roman republic was at the verge of turning into a monarchical empire, there were millions of corrup tible men for one of the avengers ol the republic. Tho rich and the highly educated were bribed by treasure and valuable positions; the soldiers by money and land grants; the masses of the people by festivals and public din ■ tier parties in tho streets of Rome. Ev j erybody, with few exceptions, was rea dy to sell his part in the republic ; some took more, some took less for their share. All seemed to long for servi tude; all preferred to intrust the man agement of State affairs to a common master, rather than lake the trouble of ruling themselves. To be free seemed to be a burdpu to everybody, aud they chose to obey rather the whims of a despot than to live under a government of law, which, for a whole century, was disregarded by everybody in power. We are yet far from such an awful condition of things. Our official world, | perhaps, is as corrupt as it can be ; most of our representative bodies are iu the i market to the highest bidder;the pco : pie submit to legislative outrages with much more forbearanco than we had | ever thought it possible, aud their in difference to the usurpation of their i rights seems often very alarming. But though a host of perhaps forty thous and corrupt officers are a great curse to the nation, they yet are ouly the one thousandth part of tho whole, aud though the seeming submission of the people to tlieir villanous conduct may be esteemed a symptom of weakness, the forbearance of the people thus far is anything but an approval. The elec tions'of lust fall were a proof of it, aud ; if all signs do not deceive us. the next elections will demonstrate still better | that our conviction is based upon a true j knowledge of the people, i it is peculiar to all revolutionary par ties to hurry events, and, for those who are in the wrong, time always marches on too slowly. If the Radical# cannot wail to the end of the regular term to have a new President, the people can wait for their revenge at the polls. We would live iu the most horrid chaos, if : the people in their opposition to Radi calism should follow the practice of the I Radicals, and if they also should aban don the lilies drawn by the Constitu tion for their legitimate action.

Harms & Co.: Iwillsay that l have been dealing in medicines for the last fourteen ycarB, and have never before found preparations that would equal your "PERRY DAVIS' PAIN KILLER’ and "ALLEN’S LUNG BALSAM.” They not only sell very rapidly, but gave the most perfect satisfaction in every uKSk^^JkM come to my knowledge. In my seldom prescribe a pa tent nieTKojfl^Brt with your “PAIN KIL LER” antH^G BALSAM,” having entire confidence in them, and knowing that they possess valuable medical properties, I freely use them in my daily practice. Especially b^ve I used the “ALLEN’S LUNG BALSAM, and with the most unbounded success. As an expectorant it is most certainly far ahead of any similar preparations 1 have ever yet known. The “PAIN KILLER” is the most standard medicine I have for sale, and many families in this v cinity would as soon think of being out of beef or bread as without a bottle of “PAIN KILLER” in the house.
