Fagan the defaulting greenback Treasurer was tried and eleven of the jury were for conviction and one for acquittal —a hung jury. So he came near landing in the pen. By reference to his card in an other place, it will be seen that Mr. S. B. Wood, ‘‘The People’s Man’' of Hope has gone out of business, and for good reasons. Mr. Wood is a wholesooled gen i tlemen and industrious, hard work er. The masses will deeply regret his retirement from mercantile pursuits, as he was emphatically the people’s friend. His many friends wish him better health, and continued happiness. There are few such noble men as he.

In view of the fact that Camden and other towns are bidding for trade that rightfully belongs to Prescott would it not be well tor our merchants to be up and doing and show up our advantages and tell what they propose to do. If desired we can get out a mammoth trade edition. of 4000 copies of the Picayune, about the loth of Sep tember, for this purpose. The cost will not be great in compari son to the benefit to In* derived tlieiefrom. We shall call on our merchants and further discuss this matter. Our whole desire is to see Prescott gel a big trade and go forward in improvement. The Washington District Con ference. M. K. C’. South, convened at Prescott, Ark., July -fStli, 1SS7. Kcv.

It has been suggest'! that a joint stock company he formed anil es tnldishja cottonjtaolor.v at l’rescott. There is no reason why it can not be done, and now is the golden opportunity. A certain property in an Mljoining county can lie bought tor less than halt its real value, and moved down here, and we leant it could be guaranted to pay tin per cent on the invest ment. As sonic of our citizens are already interested in it. and a groe to take stock in it if brought here, we hope the enterprise will he started up and run here. We know that cotton uiauulact urers of tlie Rust have grown rich, under every disad vantage,although 1 paying heavy freights on the raw material. Here we have a very healthy country ami most excel lent climate, and the raw material right at hand, besides beingasplcn did investment, a factory would give employment to a huge num ber of hands, and assist in building up our town. One such enterprise would advertise the town, and ! cause others to be erected here, j It will take only a small outlay, say ♦ 10.000 the balance of ♦.YINMl. being taken already taken, to se . cure a factory worth tM0,U0l>.

In the afternoon Capt.J A. bride well, of Hope, took the stand and spoke lor one hour and a hall. The Capt. stated that he was not a wheeler, lie being a lawyer was not eligible to the order, but was in sympathy with the larmor and would make them an agricultural speech. lie was loudly applauded during his speech, and showed how the .Morrison lull was defeat ed by the laboring men oi Penn., by petitioning their represcuta lives to vote against it.
