The Centennial has come and gone, and the grandest Republic of the ages is marching steadih onto the fillti 11 merit of its glorious destiny. With heroic purpose and ipiickened patriotism, let us all keep step to the inspiring music of our country's march to greatness and renown The new steamship. City of Paris, has just surpassed the record of all former ocean passage, having made the trip from Liverpool to New York, a distance of miles, in live days, twenty-three hours and seven minutes. This heat the record of the Ktruria. which has heretofore held the palm of the fastest ocean traveler, by two hours and forty eight minutes. All honor to the gal lant vessel whose record is ahead of the world and is without a parallel in history. A terrible cyclone recently devas tated parts of three counties of Kansas, killing several persons, and seriously injuring many others, be sides the destruction of an immense amount of property. Hut a short time previous to this calamity de structive forest tires were reported in W isconsin. Minnesota and Michi gan, burning up whole towns, and involving numerous houses and property in their march of desolation and ruin. Truly the northwestern States are having a hard time of it : the blizzards and snow blockades in winter, and the cyclones and tires in spring, make up a dark record of disaster and destruction, and furnish a potent argument in favor of our mild climate, where no such calami ties ever occur. We transfer to our columns to-day the best centennial poem of this cen tennial era. ami we commend it as a rare treat to our subscribers and readers, it i- from the pen of the gifted poet-lawyer.

While it will gratify our State and county pride to know that the' author is on ■ of the beloved sons of this State and county, it will at the same time rekindle the lire of patri-, otism. by tin thrilling memories of our ancestors one hundred years ago. It seems especially to refresh our minds with the glorious achievements of the immortal Washington, who was | truly “first in war, lirst in peace, and lirst in the hearts of his countrv meu,” We notice that the deep water commission appointed bv C'ougress to inspect the various harbors on the Texas coast, with a view of ascer taining and reporting to Congress the most available point for the establishment of a lirst-ela-s harbor, have entered upon the pi rformam . of their duty. They have already made a partial examination of the port of (ialveston; and. after com pleting their work there, they will proceed at once to Corpus Christi. or Aransas I’a.-s. and inspect its advan tages and facilities for a first-class port. As these are the only ports claiming superior advantages for deep water, the final choice for a deep water port will lie between them. It is to be hoped that this whole question of a deep water port for the Southwest, will be speedily settled, so that a lirst-elass harbor may be established either at one or the other of these competing points, and thus present another great out let for the immense and eoiislantlv augmenting productions of that large section of olll' countrv lying between the Mississippi river and the Rocky mountains. ’ PRESS ASSOCIATION, Proceedings—Excursion To Eure ka Springs, Lookout Mt., At lanta and Brunswick, Ga.

An invitation having been extended by the 'Frisco and Kureka Springs roads to the editors to visit Eureka Springs, and the same having been accepted, early Friday morning Ben tonville was left behind and going via. Seligman, Mo., we arrived there about 1 o’clock p. in. this noted health resort is an odd and curiously built city, nearly all of it on the mountain side, so one can easily step out of a fourth story window in the rear without injury, on terra lirma. The streets, excava ted. wind about the mountain like a huge serpent. It is a city of some 1 ,;.0U inhabitants, and does not ap pear to be building up much. We never drank water that we liked bet ter as clear as crystal and sparkling like diamonds. All enjoyed the half day spent here. Met our friends W. It. \\ liite. Sr., and Dt. .1, 1). Jordan, formerly citizens of Prescott. The ‘‘gang” stopped at the Crescent hotel a very tine building, but poor fare. Ceil. Powell Clayton of the noted reconstruction period, was present and met the quill drivers; and here, we regret to say it, some allow ed him to "treat” them to some of the ardent editors, too, who are continually denouncing “red liquor and hot politics.” and should have set a better example. It is not be cause Clayton is a Republican we speak thus, tint for the principle of the thing bad company, gettingon a level with a saloon frequenter, pistol totcr and tighter. Friday night and Saturday we spent enroute back to Little Rock, arriving there about C p. in. Saturday. • II M l VXOIMiA AMI I.OOKol l MT, burning our backs upon Little i Rock, the excursion party for Chat tanooga. Lookout Mountain. Atlanta and Brunswick, reached Memphis : early Sunday morning, where some spent the day. Our party numbered now about .‘LI. a number of them ladies. At 10:13 Monday we reached Chattanooga, and immedi ately took the broad-guage railroad in order to take dinner on top of Lookout Mouiitaiu. The railroad, curves about the mountain a number of times, taking up fourteen miles to reach the summit, which is about one mile from I lit* base. It is a master piece of engineering. the grade so perfect as to average about 1*0 feet to the mile, l’artook of a line dinner at Lookout Mountain hotel and then began our explorations and views. This is one of the most noted points, in history, made so by the great battle fought hereon between (rens. (irant and Roseerantz of the Federal forces and Hraggof the Con federate. in the war of secession. (Jen. Roseerantz and a party of friends visited the historical place the dav we were there. Looking from "point lookout," Chattanooga secerned spread at our feet, a beau tiful. though smoky manufacturing city: her factories, churches, rail roads and large business houses, and palatial residences, stood out iii hold relief, and the majestic and hroad Tennessee, like a silver sheen, with it- waters encircling the fit\ in its arms, on its way to the sea. added new beauty and grandeur to tlie enchanting scene. Various joints of interest were visited, among them "Basin Kock,” Devil’s Fire place,” Sunset Kock,” etc., etc. Wish we had space to describe the grand views and sights from these places. Directly on the summit we saw •*Pulpit Kock,” an immense bowlder twenty feet high, from which President Davis made a speech to tlie Confederates, while close by was • • l’inf»re*lla Kock,” upon which -at Mrs. Davis, while lie was speak ing. Took a ride on the narrow gunge railroad along the steep side of the mountain, near the summit but our foreman admonishes us to let up on Lookout, and so we must.

We will suv one tiling for it it is a large and growing city, destined to become second to none other in the South. \1 I.A Vr \ \ 111 n i t.INo l ITV. Monday night our party left for Atlanta, tlie "Cute City,” the New York of the South. Tuesday and Wednesday were spent pleasantly and profitably visiting the manufacturing establishments and points of interest here. Mounted tlie dome of Geor gia’s magnificent new capitol build ing, and at a height of 290 feet a line view of the city and surrounding country was afforded. Grant park, the glass works, and other places were taken in. Atlanta is becoming a mighty city, now containing about tio.OOt) and growing rapidly.

While the hoys were ••doing" Atlanta, Allen, (our broth er) and we. visited our three married sisters at Carrollton, (la., a short way out from the city, and spent a night and half day very pleasantly, receiving a hearty welcome on all sides. A clever friend wanted to banquet us two Arkansas editors and the home team. As we'd been out near two weeks, regretted we could not stay to accept. HIM N'WK K AMI ATI.ANTIC Ol KAN. "On to Brunswick and the fishing grounds.” was the cry, so Wednes day night "all-ahoard!” was said by the clever railroad conductor, and Thursday noon found our jolly party at our journey's end and ready for anything new. Hut. oh, the horrid weather too hot to breathe well or navigate'. Some of the hoys, from the mountains of Arkansas, could be seen seeking a shade tree, with longues lolling out and the perspira tion pouring off them in solid streams. To St. Simon’s Island at nice and let the fishes go. was the mammons conclusion; therefore, after dinner a steamboat was char tered. and the editors, their wives, laughters or sweethearts hied away lown Turtle river some six or a dozen niles to the island fronting the iroad Atlantic, to tind comfort in he cool and delightful surf. A line ireeze fanned our heated brows on he way down, and a few hacked lown from taking the hath. Ilow •ver. nearly all took to the bath louse and donned nobby bathing .nils, and ladies and gentlemen to gether, enjoyed the rolling surf, •emaining in for half an hour or more. The gentlemens' bathing suits are made in one piece, with •are arms and reaching just below he knees; the ladies' suits were teat and decorous also, covering the •ntire person. To say we enjoved his delightful, invigorating and e\ •iting hath, would tie putting it mildly. As tin- surf is light here, the ladies, to all of whom it was new. were not much frightened, and hence their pleasure was not much marred, as wotdd have been the case at Galveston on the Gulf, or Long Branch on the Atlantic. Took sup per at the St. Simon’s hotel on the beautiful beach, where the tides of the ocean ever keep up a ceaseless roar, as of a heavy falling rain. After eating supper we re turned to the city. Brunswick is a rising place, now containg about 1 1.0,000 inhabitants, where a few years since not half so many lived. Having a splendid deep water barber to help it commercially, and a fine winter climate which makes it a big i winter resort, its future seems bright. IIOMKWAIII) liOI NO— Si >TKs. Our lively band, (sorry we haven’t space to name them all) decided to come home, instead of going on to Cuba, as Mr. Cleveland did. ami Thursday night charged and captured lone of those new-fangled vestibule Pullman sleepers. On it we were j pleased to meet our old-time friend. Hr. .J. \V. Griggs, of West Point, Ga., where we run a newspaper for several years just before coming here. | Friday we traveled, and Friday night we rode, and Saturday we traveled or snored, and arrived at home at (5:20 Saturday evening, after nearly two week’s absence. \'e intended giving some notes and jokes on the boys and ladies too. but tins article is now too long and will have to forbear doing so. As long as we live, and we hope in eter nity, too, we shall ever remember our trip to Bentonville, Eureka Springs. Lookout Mountain. Atlanta and Brunswick, and the many kind nesses rendered us. which break the monotony and weariness of life’s cares and troubles. Our sincere wish is that each and every one of the friends of the press may have a sticcesful happy future here and per fect happiness and contentment in the life to come. In our travels we passed through parts of live other States besides Arkansas, to-wit; Missouri, Ten nessee, Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia, going over the following lines of railway: Iron Mountain, ’Friseo. Kureka Springs. Memphis w Charleston and East Tenn., Va.. \ Ga.. the two latter under same man agement, and to these companies the editors are under many obligations for courtesies and kindnesses ex tended.

They have examined into all cases of violations of the criminal law of which they had knowledge or could receive information, and have pre sented true Tills in cases where the testimony warranted. They lind the public buildings and records in good condition, and the public offices properly and neatly kept : they Mud the roads in good condition; and find that the justices have tiled their reports; they have examined the re port of the county commissi mers of accounts which have been duly filed, but find nothing in it demanding the attention of the grand jury, but the attention of the Hon. County Judge is respectfully called to the same so that lie nun issue proper citations to the parties therein reported delin quent. so as to force them to a settle ment. or enable a subsequent grand jury to present them. The road overseers are in default with their reports, but owing to the fact that the county was not provided with copies of the road law to furnish to them, wi» have concluded not t• > present indictments against them, but to ask the Hon. Count! Judge to have a copy of the road law fur nished to each of them, and the next grand jury will doubtless attend to the eases of those who fail to file the reports required by law. And now having fully discharged our duty, with our thanks to the court and its officers, we respectfully ask to be discharged. W. H m i.i i. Foreman.

The health of our vicinity is re markable good, fearfully healthy, say the doctors. Mr. l)an Pipkin, who was a wit ness in court, was taken very sick while in Prescott, and had Quite a severe attack.

A colored woman who lives in our neighborhood was needed as a wit uess in court last week. An officer was sent for her with peremptory or ders. and she was taken away from a ver\ sick child, which died after her leaving, and was buried before her return home. This seems cruel and unfeeling, and we cannot think our Honorable .lodge would have suffer ed this done, had he known the cir cumstances. Hut we hope the like ma\ never occur again. Let our court semi out ollicers of sufficient human kindness ami general intelli gence. to know how to act in excep tional cases like this one. upon their own judgement, and leave sm h writs unexecuted and rely upon the good sense and kind feeling of the court for vindication. The fruit crop is now assured, being the heaviest known for many vears. The peach trees are loaded and bending with large, well devel oped fruit, and already hare to be propped up to prevent breaking. Strawberries, raspberries, mulber ries (swamp and upland), plum-, persimmons, apples, etc., everything is full. People who want to see what Arkansas can do in fruit should visit her this summer. If those who live in bleak and sterile and non fruit producing sections should visit Arkansas this year, they would carry back reports more marvelous than those of the ••spies” who explored the promised land of Canaan and carried back sample- of the grapes of Ksehol.
