cause coming on for final hearing, by consent of parties,
and the Court having heard and considered of the bill,
answer, exhibits and evidence taken by consent in this
ease, the *obHfiince of the Complainant s bill and exhib
its appeared to be, that Robert Crittenden, deceased, on
the fourth day of February, in the year of Christ one
thousand eight hundred and twenty-six, mortgaged to
the said Complainant the slaves in said bill described,
to wit, Susan, and her three children, Mary, Isabella,
find Rachel, to secure the said Complainant against a
certain promissory note, of even date with the said mort
gage, executed to Ann Innes, Executrix of liarry Innce,
deceased, by the said Crittenden as principal and the
eaid Complainant as his security, for the sum of nine
hundred and filly dollars, current money of the United
States; and which, said mortgage was to bo void, in case
the said Crittenden should pay oil* and satisfy the said
promissory note, and keep the said Complainant free
from any loss or damage therein; which said mortgage ;
•was duly acknowledged on the thirteenth day ofFebru
ary, A. D. 1826, by the said Robert Crittenden, before I
A. H. ltennick, Clerk of the County Court for the Coun- j
ty of Franklin, State of Kentucky, and recorded in the ;
office of the Clerk of l’ulaski County, in the Territory of I
Arkansas, on the first day of January, A. D. 1835; and |
that the said Robert Crittenden during his lifetime en- ;
tirely failed to pay up and satisfy the said promissory j
note, or the interest thereon, or any part of either, ex- J
cept the sum of fifty-five dollars on the nineteenth day |
of December, A. D. 1827, and the sum of fifty dollars on j

child may be sold together with its mother, and the
fund arising therefrom divided according to the apprais
ed value of each mother and child as in said answer set
forth: Whereupon the Court here having heard and con
sidered of the bill, answer, exhibits and evidence afore
said, and being fully advised of and concerning the pre
mises, doth order, adjudge and decree, that Absalom
Fowler, surviving Administrator aforesaid, do pay to the
said Complainant the sum of thirteen hundred and seven
ty-six dollars and eighty-six cents, boing the amount so
as aforesaid paid for the said Crittenden by the said
Complainant, together with interest thereon from the
date of said payment up to the date of this decree, on or
before the. twenty-seventh day of February instant, and
in the event of a failure to pny said last mentioned sum,
it is further ordered, adjudged and decreed, that said
slaves, to wit, Susan, Isabella, Mary and Rachel, and
their increase, Charles and William Henry, be sold to
pay said debt, and that the said Defendant be, and he is
hereby, precluded from redeeming said slaves, and that
all equity of redemption of said slaves be, and the same is
hereby forever barred against the said Defendant, survi
ving Administrator as aforesaid, and against any and all
other representatives of the said Crittenden and his heirs
or assigns; and it is further ordered, adjudged and de
creed, that unless the said last mentioned amount he

value of the mothers, he satisfy to the said Complainant

and eighty-six cents, with the interest thereon accruing
trom the date of this decree until the same be paid, with
the costs of this suit, and that he hold the residue of the

rgMiH subscriber having established himself in the
JL town of Lbwisbuko, Conway county, will keep on
hand a largo and general assortment of all the articles
sold by dealers in the above line—which will be sold at
low prices and on accommodating terms.
Lewisburg, Conway county, July 12, 1836.-15-tf
IS situated in Crawford county, on the left bank of the
Arkansas river, about five hundred and filly miles from
the ,\1 ississippi, by the course of the river, and a few miles
below the Indian boundary line. The immediate situa
tion is picturesque and pleasing to the eye, easily ap
proachable by the roads, unusually elevated for a posi
tion on the margin of the river—indeed, a portion of the
townsite is a high and commanding eminence—with an
abundant and never-failing supply of the most palatable
and the purest water. Steam-boat navigation to this
point, and for some distance above, is as safe and as sure
as our river affords; its extension to any great distance
above is precarious, uncertain and not to be relied on.
Van Huron has more extensive regions of back coun
try to support it, beyond all shadow of competition, than
any other point or place on this river, or in the Territo
ry* known to the writer. The contiguous settlements of
Lee’s creek and Frog Uayoit have here their trade. The
large, populous and agricultural county of Washington,
in this Territory, must resort to Van Buren as the point
of embarkation for her produce, and must seek her sup
ply of essential articles from the same quarter ; with
equal truth, and with equal positiveness, may the same
remarks be made of south-western Missouri, so rapidly
advancing in numbers, in means and in wants. To add
another weighty item in the list of advantages, the pro
jected United States road, now in train of execution,
from Jackson, in Lawrence county, by the county seat of
Izard and Washington, crosses the Arkansas river at
Van Huron.
The proprietor invites the merchant, the mechanic, the
capitalist generally, and all persons of enterprize and en
ergy of character, to make investments in this town, con
scious that they will meet with an early and adequate
requital for amount advanced or exertion applied.
The undersigned, being the sole proprietor of this town
—the contract heretofore existing between him and the
late Gen. Wm. Montgomery having been rescinded, and
all disputes as to title from that and all other quarters
fully adjusted and annulled—is now ready to dispose of
lots, and give indisputable titles.
Gentlemen wishing to invest money, or to locate in a
thriving new town, will do well to examine the superior
natural advantages and plats of Van Buren, where lots
are ofi'ered, at private sale, on very moderate terms, and
on accommodating credits—and a reduction in price will
be made to those making immediate improvements on
their purchases. " THOMAS PHILLIPS.

MOUTH OF ARKANSAS.
j fTMIE subscribers respectfully inform the public, that
j A they still continue the Storage and Forwarding bu
siness at the Mouth of Arkansas River. They have
completed their large and commodious warehouses, and
are now ready to receive and forward all goods, produce,
&c that may be consigned to them for reshipment. All’
business entrusted to them will be punctuality and what
is of more importance, speedily attended to. 'They have
no interest in any steamboat whatever, and rely only on
the tuithiul discharge oi their business for patronage and
favor. ° .
Persons ascending the Arkansas, will findthe passage
through the mouth ot Arkansas equally as good at all
times, and better at some, than through the cut off_as
boats often pass down the former, when the depth of wa
! ter does not admit a passage through the latter.
They will also transact Commission Husiness of eve
| ry kind which may be entrusted to them—buying up
country produce on the river, dec.
Having recently been informed that misrepresenta
ions are alloat as to Urv~practiCability of traveling from
the Post of Arkansas to this place, by land, on account
ol water and other obstructions, wc teel it a duty wc
owe ourselves and a traveling community, to state, that
a good road is now open, and, with very slight excep
tions, on a direct and dry route, from this place to the
Post, and only about 27 miles distant.
’ **11 unremitting care and attention will merit it
they trust to receive a share of public patronage.
