It has been finally decided by the managers to re-open tlie New Orleans Exposition next fall. In ull probability the show will be bet ter next winter than it was the last. Elections will be held in ten states this year, to-wit: Iowa, New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Mary land, Virginia, Mississippi and Ohio. “Uncle” Taylor Polk, a cous in of the late President Polk, died in Howard county last week,at the advanced ago of 87 years, lie had lived in that section of the State for 75 years. Jackson, Miss., and Kitfuula, Ala., each have held an election to decide between contesting parties for the postotSces of tlio two places. The procedure is without warrant, and what effect it will have on the Chief Executive re mains to be seen. The exposition closed at Now Orleans last week. It will l»o re opened in the fall. Arkansas took the sweepstakes premium, and first premium on cotton. On fruits she also took the first premium. This is a tine showing for the State, •and will be a standing advertise ment for her. -.. ; Tiik redemption clerk in the Sub-Treasury at Now Orleans, •kipped a few days ago leaving a shortage of $60,000.

Thk Horn Mercury regards Tom McRae’s nativity ns one argu ment in favor of his nomination, and reminds the public that Ark ansas has never in her histoiv been represented in Congress by a native-born citizen.

Howakp, ofj.it tie Rock, Inis been appointed As. distant AttorneyGencrul of the l i.ited States for the Court of Claims, Col. Howard is a very learned and a very eloquent law yer, and his appointment to this hijjli position seems to me, t with universal popular approval. He' was a Cnion soldier, and settled m J.itlle II »ik immediately after the ijose ot the war. I Extreme Partisan* In the Third f i m s< rict. in the mat tor of appointments, the President seems to be proceed mg upon the idea that no Federal j office-holder should be removed or j -it-pended from Ina olllco before j I lie expiration of his commission, j except for cause. But he, at the 1 same time, holds that extreme par tisanship in politics is a violation of the civil service act, and, there- : fore, sufficient ground for suspen sion or removal. In this general idea, and in this construction and application of the ‘ law, we can not say that wo disa , grec with the President. In fact , wo fully and heartily concur with him. And this being his policy, his attention should lie invite 1 to j the fact that a a election for a rep rosentative in Congress is soon to take place in Iho Third district of Arkansas, which district is, an 1 lias boon for yo.irs, full o.' the ex tremest of extreme Federal olli ;e- ' holding partisans—p utisans of tho reconstruction, cirpot hag school of 18(58, who, at the time of their appointment to olli :o hero had no interest in, or identity with, the country, and who, with only two or three exceptions, hive none now, beyond that which tliny feel in thoir official positions. He should, without further delay, he made aware that for seventeen years those man have subsisted upon offices here in a district where if the offices had been elective they never could have occupied a sin gle one of them; that during tho whole of this long term they have not only paid their political assesp mcuts with the greatest alacrity and liberality, but have worked actively, without regird to meth ods. through every campaign, and constituted the skill, tho daring, tho audacity, the utter unscrupn lonsness, and tho adroit leader ship, of the opposition to Democ racy in every contest, lie should know also that the Third district (formerly the Second) is, and al ways lias boon, the closest and most hotly contested one in the State—in fact ono of the closest and most hotly c infested districts in the South. And ns evidence that the election of a Democratic President basin no degree dimin ished the partisan zeal of these men, his attention should he called to the following special telegram from a Ilot Springs Republican to the St. Louie Globe-Democrat. Congressman Jones’ Successor, —Hpooinl Dispntch to the Ulube-Democmt, Hot Sprinos, Ark., M iv 111.—There in un interesting contest in the Thiol < tongressirc-ul District for tho Democratic nomination togill tho pUce made vaeunt by the eleetiofof Reprotentntivo Jnuios K.

T. lic.^is'ii of Hamden arc evidently the foremost as pi rant*, nml the aeranible la-tween them protu. iso* to ho animated. A joint canvass has been arrange I for, and will commence this wivk. Mi .mwliilo tlie independent element is quietly grooming n candidate in tiie person of lion. \V. P. Parks, of Lewisville, who was the Fusion candidate for Governor in 1 sno. The district is rather close with a full vote, anil the Democratic nominee is not destined to a walk-over. Th« election Will, it is ex pected, occur in September. It will l>o observed that the op position is alluded to in this tele ! gram as ‘‘the independent cle ment.” That is the usual term, but it invariably and universally means the Republican party as the nucleus and all tho dissatisfied factions and fragments as the con tingent force. It is apparent that the sender of this telegram is per fectly familiar with the situation in this district, and knows whereof he ■ writes. A careful survey of the field will convince any thinking man that it : would ho l»y no means impossible under all present existing circiim i stances for the opposition to elect their candidate. This being true, and the fact standing confessed that when the people of this Union voted for a change of administra tion, they meant a change all along the line, and in view of the fur ther fact that all these office hold ing partisans aro liable to, and de serve, immediate removal for cause, wo hope the President will at once put them upon their own resources. Then if they wish to “groom” an opposition candidate, ami see proper to contribute the money for his canvass, it will be their privilege to do so, and no Democrat will bo found in the ‘•'strict to complain of their full, tree and complete exercise of that privilege. Nink tkntus oftho mon to be 1 mot with in this State outside ot1 the Third district, express the! hope that Tom Me li.ee will be the nominee for Congress. 11 is stand ing as a fit and worthy man for that important position, is not con lined to any j articular locality, it is Co-ox tensive with the State. >cor<“ Another One fur (Jirlaai and (1 "reload. — The appointment of Lawyer , Saehariah Montgomery, ot Cull* j ‘ornia, to be Assistant Attorney-! General for the Department of the Interior, gave rise to mu eh nd verse criticism of the Attorney- j General by a number of the metro politan journals of the country. Some of these papers, notably the New York Herald, in the matter of the appointment of Mr. Montgom ery,' did not only criticise Mr. Cleveland, and tender him much advice, but were iu the extremest degree denunciatory of Mr, Gar land. They alleged that there were but three reasons for the selection of Mr. Montgomery. The lirst was that he was a schoolfellow of Mr. Garland’s; tho second, that ho was a rabid secessionist all through the late war; and the third, that he was the author of certain public uiierances inimical to me nee, school systems if the country. Hut in due course of time the tru th j commenced to leak out, and the ! consequence is Mr. Garland and the President are now receiving proper credit for a wise and aus-j pieious appointment which, but [ for theso criticisms, might, and j most probably would, havo been \ comparatively unnoticed. The fact3 seem to lie that when the California monopolists, with Judge Field, the mspirer of tho New York Herald, at their head, called on Mr. Garland to protest against the appointment they first called attention to Mr. Montgom ery’s pamphlets attacking certain features of the California school j law. Mr. Garland remarked that r lie had road those pamphlets and had found them interesting and in structive, but did not learn from them that the author was at all an . enemy of the public schools. As to the religions phase of Mr. Mont gomery’s opinions on the subject, lie would as soon think of making that gentleman’s views on the question of infant baptism a test of his fitness to act as the legal ad viser of the Interior Department. Then the real cause of the objec tion to the distinguished Californi an came out, and it was charged that, as a member of tho Cali fornia Constittuional Conven tion, or in some other public . olutions “attacking corporate j body, ho had introduced res j property”—that is to say, the hold ing of vast areas of land in mort- j main, or something of that sort. This charge seems to have designa ted Mr. Montgomery as tlio very man the Attorney-General was looking for, qnd it was immediate ly reported that ho would resign if tho President refused to make the appointment. It was about time to put tho Interior Depart ment under the direction of some able legal adviser who would not be overawed and overpowered by tho peculiar views of those arch monopolists, Judge Field and his brother Cyrus, in regard to the blasphemy of questioning the all embracing and self exalting divini ty of corporation powers. It may be surmised that hereafter the De partment ot the Interior will cease to act upon the theory that the land-grabbing corporations have an inherent right and an indefeasi ble title to the earth and to all the fatness thereof. lienee we may well say, score another one for Garland and Cleveland. Prints and Endorses Every Word of it Tho Malvern Meteor, one of the sturdiest Democratic papers in this Congressional district, or in tho whole State, as to that matter, re , produces Mr. Mo Line's address in full with the following well chosen comments: M give ploco this week to a circular let ter of lien T.

She was j but six weeks old at tho time of the death of her brave and illus Irimis father, and every person, wo take it, throughout the length j and breadth of iho Uuion, who reuda of her happy marriage, will sincerely wish her much joy and a lung life of health aud happiness None More I reserving. The Little Hoc1 Democrat, in an . ! editorial p rnernph favorable to j tlie nomination of i'. * McRae for Congress, ill a recent issue, made I the Statement that “no man in Ar • j Uansns of equal prominence has j held ofliee so little; no man de- ’ serves more to hold it.” This Is absolutely true. Except to represent Nevada county in the I Legislature one term, Mr. MeTtiO lias never held any civil or political office, and yet men most capable of judging of 1110 ability, qualifica tions and fitness of men for impor tant public trusts, unhesitatingly pronounce him the best equipped man for the position to which he aspires now out of Congress, not only in the Third district, but in I the whole State. Iu urging Ins nomination, McKae’s friends invite the closest scrutiny and the most careful con sideration of liis varied abilities, his sterling integrityt his unwaver ing fidelity, his high moral charac ter, his matchless zeal, his pure patriotism, his ceaseless energy, his lofty ambition, and bis inde fatigable industry. All these, and more, we hold up as benefits to enure to his constituency by reason of his nomination and election. And to choose him would he to choose a represeuative fresh from the people. Such As Might Have Been Expected. We have received and read with much care, the concise and elo quent address of lion, Thos, C. McRae, candidate for congress. It is like the man, and such as those who know him well would have ex pected. To the point, sensible, manly, polished, practical, touch ing all the points of importance, and dealing with each other in a plain and practical manner, avoid ing all tendency to demagoguey, or hobby riding. Read this address and you will not ho at a loss to know that yon liavo before you a man of sterling qualities, who has a mind ot his own, and can aud does speak it.

The Little Rock papers are just now crying out against unjust dis crimination on the part of the railroads against their city. We iloubt not that they have good I cause for complaint, but if it will j hurt nobody’s feelings we would ! like to enquire if these same pa pers, the (dazette and the Demo | erat, did not “panterv to the rail I roads last winter when there was some talk in the Legislature of; ' passing a law to prevent just such j 'discrimination as they are now complaining of. Come now, boys, bo honest! Didn’t you “panter” just a "luetic'’ bit!

Notwithstanding the innumer able jokes of which the game law has been the subject, it is beyond question more popular, and is be ing more universally observed, than any statute ever enacted in this State that made so great an innovation upon what unthinking men had grown to regard as a vested right—the right to kill game whenever and wherever they pleased. The game and lish are a part of the'resources of the coun try—for one man as much as for another—and their protection from waste had already been too long neglected. In the passage of this law Arkansas was years behind every other State in the Union. A Grateful Mother, My little boy when only two years old had what was said to be a stroke of paralysis, effecting his light limb, and for many months lie couhl not walk. His health be came exceedingly feeble. No one dreamed be would ever recover from his misfortune? and hope had ; left my own heart of ever rearing him to manhood. Finally lie com menced to use his limbs a little, but the ankle joint had become im potent, and in attempting to walk , his foot would turn to one side, and the ankle hone would touch the door. With that anguish which only a mother can feel, I lirst rea , lized he was to be a cripple all bis life. With the aid of a steel ankle I Draco lie was enabled to got around the bouse. His health was cum pletoly shattered, and with an aching heart and gravest appreheii mod 1 watched the livid expression of couutengo. What a widowed mother’s affection could do was done, out with little permanent benefit, living assured by triends that Swift’s Specific would do him good, through their kindness I se cured several bottles. I commenc ed to give it to my child about the first ot last July (1S>1). The first bottle acted like a charm upon his system. After tlio second bottle his complexion cleared up and strength began to increase, lie threw away Iks braces several months ago, and now walks better than be ever did with it. The an kle joint has regained its strength and the foot its proper position, and the large lump on tiio ankle caused by friction and unnatural use, lias disappeared. He is now iu his sixth year; his health is as good and ho is as lively as any child of his age. He lias taken six bottles of S. S. S. only, but the change has been wonderful, and everybody who had seen him be fore he commenced to take the medicine are astonished at his ap pearance now. For the first time since his illness I feel in my heart the hope of rearing hime; With devout gratitude to Him who gave him, 1 bless the day I ever heard of this remedy. It Las saved mv child. Mns.
