Gov. Mill will assume the duties of the office. Gov Bates of Tennesee, absented himself from the TocvfGon or en tertainments that were given Hon. S. J.

Thk Augusta Ynletto trut It fully sa.\s that when the laws of our state are so nmendnd as to punish the bom who get; away with pub lic intraey us they do the man who gets away with lire neighbor's hogs, Uiexe will be a better prospect for reform than tlictc is now. Coi.. S. \V. Fokdvck, of Gar land county, lias been selected to till the place in the Democratic national committed vacated by Cldef Justice, 8. It.

W E see fn*? the proceedings of Congress that Mrs- 1 Selva A.; Lockwood, lias presented a petition 1 to that body to sec that the votes east for her in the late lYercik-ot ial election be counted. This is as cheeky as her consenting tw run for the high office, and about as inconsistent, as no votes can be counted but the elec- ' tors’ votes cast by states, and site : was hardly known in the race in any one of all the states. Ora Legislature will on next: Monday decide w ho will be Sen ator Walker’s successor ia the national congress. It ikw looks a* il either, Col. Jones, Ool. Dunn, or (iov. 1 Jerry, will be selected. All three have a strong following, but it is thought our choice, Col. Jones, is attend. They are all dis tinguished getleossn, and neither would do violence to the state as her representative. Still we trust Col. Jones will win. has large experience in our national halls ot legislation and is in every wsy fully capacitutcd and a fitting talesman foi flo position. k The Tcsti hfr. The instructor of y out It shoud lie it whole nutn or a whole woman in (lie broadest sense of the term —should lie n high in ora? character and of literary habit of thought and action. No one who fakes the name of <!od in vain mderany cir cumstances, or at any place, should ever be trusted with the care of children, lie who cannot control bis passioirs auJ aucttk .pbutsautly, though lbs very soul is rent with the we.vwimhiesH of seemingly iu crtenigillie boys, ought nut to un dertake <to mould and develop j their minds. He w ho does •not I make books and children a study ■ has no more business to undertake teaching than a hod carrier has to practice medicine or surgery; nyd I lie whose very soul is not wrapped j up in the welfare of children Ims I no business to touch one-—Alai i vorn Weekly P ews. Wc agree with yon, brother Curl that the teacher should he a whole man or wottian. I’ut a piece of Immunity any where else hut in the school room. Put we cannot think that a teacher should always ho pleasant—“speak pleasantly,” you say, “when his very soul is rent.” A whole man or woman in the broadest sense of the term, cannot do this -will not do k, be cause duty forbids. Teachers have all forme of immorality to con tend " ith—sometimes even the most disgusting obscenity. Should they speak pleasantly of such things? Will their pupils respect them if they do? No. They will think, and justly too, that the teacher is winking at their vices in order to keep his place. They will dispiso him. -If the teachers “very' soul is wrapped up in the welfare of children,” he cannot rpenk dis passionately of all things they do land say. When you say his “very soul sho^h.1 he wrapped up in the | welfare of children,” you put lnm in the mothers place. Well, we | say so, too, and where is the moth I er who can speak dispassionately | to her son when she finds that he has hod, stolen, been engaged in some scheme of deceit or treach ery, or even lower vulgar vicious* ness? Produce such a mother if you can an# let her be h“ng. Where H the mother who will “speak pleasantly” to her children when they are guilty of such things? If you can find her you will find no “whole woman m the broadest sense of the term.” No, no. The “whole woman” will reveal her displeasure with all the fervent strong*I* of her large sou*. (Irant the teacher 1'iiS high mor-] al right to frown Cu sin, while he hears with tin1 foibles of children with extreme patience. We do i not believe that a teacher should “speak pleasantly” when repre mamliug otrlcssness, laziness, in gratitude, insolence and similar faults with which his “very soul” is tried every day. We think he should be patient and culm hut not exactly pleasant with tht oftVuder. Let him smile and he pleasant but not at all times. l.itiipir Llo«-r**r. j We stated last week that a pe tition had been tiled fur prohibi tion within three miles of Prescott I llut the whisky men had tiled their applications together with bonds land receipts for license money to the Sheri It, several days ahead of | the prohibition petition. Hence I the liquor license was reached and acted upon first. The temperance ! people gave Bolico through their attorneys and at once applied to. Judge Byrne for a writ of uianda mus and order to force Judge llale j to consider the petition for prolii I bition and to vacate the license' just granted until lie had consid-j ed said prohibition petition. The J circuit judge issued upon the ap-1 plication of the temperance people, - a citation commanding Judge llale to appear before him in Texarkana j Jan. 10th, and show cause why the suit ot mandamus should not go against lain. Judge llale with his attorneys appeared 012 the «|j*v above stated before Judge ltyrne who after hearing the alignment refused to issu" a mandamus re quiring Judge llale to vacate the license; thus sosUining Judge Hale in. his rulings. The npplica. tion for mandamus was withdrawn and the prohibition is now pending and if granted it will not take ef feet until next year. The Legislature. At 12 o’clock Monday, the ^tute Legislature convened. 1’pto to-day, nothing had been done except the election of presiding officers on Monday, resulting in Ihe selection <rt It. B.

Only a few fane. lie.8jreeieved callers; and the email hoy •with tlidin horn and firecrack er was cons|iicuously absent; t Ii o’ there was enough of ‘ft e latter to stallttbs* ttri that hurned tiut one j block of buildings in the city, at a loss of over $1.10,000, Thursday night. j\Iter a continuance of rain and warm weather foe two weeks, the weatlu r suddenly changed about ! midnight of 1NS4 and 18 8.1, and the first of January came in cool and brisk, forcibly reminding one of | overcoats, cloaks, fll.mel» and fires. Several Commissioners to the Exposition went home to spend the holidays. Among them were Gov. Furnas, of Nebraska.; A. P. Sliarpstein, of W ashington Terri ; t-ory ; A. C. Davis,of Michigan; A. MeKin/.ie, of Dakota; F. .1. Haynes, of Yellowstone National Park art department. Gov. Goldsworthy of Belize, Mritish Honduras, after I a pica* ant visit,here Inis returned I here. C. 15. Huntington, a lead ing railroad owner and manager, j between the Atlantic and Pacific, was in New Orleans this week.— Col. C. E. Hollins, general western agent for the Stettin Lloyd Ocean Steamship Co., and editor of the Insurance Argus, Chicago, was visiting the Cresent City, accom panied by bis family, during the past few days. If the Great Eastern does not come to New Orleans, the old Lib erty Hell of the Keystone State will. Arrangements have been made to let her ring south of Ma son & Dixon’s [now imaginary] line. It will be escorted l*y three tried true stalwart policemen. The public can view the century Irons*. , tired relic as it passes tlirou’ over half a dozen States to reach Lou isiana. In the gallery of the government ' building, whore fhe colored people hare ‘tve*! exhibit, a most beauti ful and artistic display is being given, which shows the progress I of this race is very encouraging.— There is much originality of de j sigh and finish and great credit is due them for the interest they | have taken in the departments. Hon. H. lx. Ilmeo, Register of the j C. S'. Treasury, is the Commis sioner of this branch of Hie Expo-1 sit ion, which evidences that he has well performed his mission. One can stand for hours watch ing the handling of cotton from the field through its numerous manipulations • picking, ginning, pressing; Hrev.ee curding, spilling, weaving, ready for the sewing ma- i chine; or after spiniug. spooling, for sewing thread. Along the! same road is a machine for making I spools from little blocks of wood. It feeds and operates itself auto math-ally turning out several thou sand spools aw hour. Also tliS riik industry, which Inis grown so rapidly, wherein nearly every State and Territory is ! more or less engaged, attracts un decided attention. The working of silk from the eacoon by reeling off the tiny fibres, and warping it for the looms, whore hankurchiefs ribbons and dress-goods are manu factured right before your eyes, seemingly arith the least difficulty.! The fact is nearly every art known to human ingenuity can be practically seen in operation by at- ^ tending the Exposition. It seems: that nothing is left unrepresented, i which proves this is indeed the World’s Fair! Every State and Territory in the j government is supplied with a reg ister and all visitors ate requested j to rigti theu- name and residence, also where they are etopping in the city. Arkansas has the lar gest hook, but Dakota gets ahead of it by haviuga double or dupli cate copy*. The impression gone abroad I that visitors to the World’s Expo sition are charged exorbitant rates for hoard and rooms. N\ bile this’ no dofbt has been the ease in j some instances, yet it ’.s Bnuoees sary. The writer called on N'olz A Moulton, L'3 t’arondelet street who act as commissioners between ] the hotels, hoarding house and “rooms to let” people, and was in formed that the average price paid bv visitors for rooms and board was less than two dollars! per day. I’or reliable and condensed in format bm about New Orleans and the expos.tion, visitors should se cure and study well the “Visitors’ Guide,’ by 1 hen Pohlmanu, of this city. It will save i<»u many a mile of travel while here, giving a map of the city, street railway s, illustrations ot the Ev|>osition buildings, and will answer almost any question which may arise. It costs 14 cents prepaid by mail. Ho Tliauks Ilis Paper. Mr. IMitur.

After a trial of prohibition of four years hi Arkadelpf ia, the county court of Clark county granted retail license to liquor dealers. “Blind tigers” are play it g the wild with the citizens of Augusta, Ozark sml Webb City , and other i “prolii” towns in the State. Nashville does not allow whi.-kv rebuk'd in its corporate limits, hut a "three mile saloon” will be estab lished'or. both sides of it. A man named D. W.

The government work on the bank of Hie river at Pine Bluff ...avod into the river and was car ried away by t>e recent high wa ter. Mrs. Rolit. Mann, of Hot Springs county, was murdered at her home a few days ago for her money. Her step-son and a neighbor have been arrested on suspicion. Texarkana is agitating the ques Bon of establishing public free schools tor all the ye.nr, it success ful, the move will prove of great benefit in 1 lping to build up the place. The Searcy Beacon has the fob lowing about the recent inclement weather: “*he^e is mud enough in this country to run a political cam paign or two if the mud was of the right kind.” An attempt was mr.de to assas «eite Mr. Alfred West, a well known young man of tSebastian county, a few days ago. The shot fired and intended for him killed the mule he was riding. The *,Jssing of cantatas ami en tertainments by some of the “boys” of Forest City, is justly severely censured by the News of that place. Such conduct is not only very rep rehensible, but inexcusable. J. !>. Lipps, lying in jail at For est City, for the murder of James Simmons, has written a touching piece, (an atte—pt at poetry), to his sister, and published by request in the fH. Francis County News. Locksburg must be socially very dull.

Pike County Senti icl, 3d Mr. J. P. Stroope, who has just returned j from a trip to Waldron, informs us I that about two weeks ago a woman j living •mine twenty-three miles this t ide of Waldron went to spend j the Bight with a sick neighbor. Not returning the next morning at the time her husband expected her, he went in search. Arm ing at the neighbor’s house he was told she had started home at daylight, j Alarmed at this, he continued the search on big way back, and see ing a lingo panther jumpiip on a! log near the road and run off, he | went to the log and looking over it lie saw the mangled body of his wile literally torn to pieces In the brhte. The panther was hunted j down and killed the same day.] He proved to be a monster of hi*; species, mean ring nine feet in length.
