Master Abraham Lincoln, a young sou of Minister to Kngland Lincoln, died at London. The United Stales Senate has passed a hill authorizing the building of a bridge at. Pendleton across the Arkansas river, and also one at Lit tle ltock.__ The members of the three Ameri cas Congress are to make a tour of the principal cities of the South as soon as the Congress adjourns, which it is thought will he about the first of April. It seems from the latest news that the father of waters is threatened with a serious overflow, as it is high er than it lias been for several years. The Arkansas river also is reported to be booming. The puerile attempt of <> S Jones critiiesing speech of Hon PC McRae made in Congress on circulation of national banks, U unworthy • f notice. Tom McRae is too well known for in uendocs from such source to hurt him. Judge 11. C. Caldwell has been ap pointed to the U. S. Circuit Court Judgship. made vacant by the promo tion of Judge Brewer to the Supreme Bench. Judge John A. Williams, of Pine Bluff, is reported to lie a candi date for Judge Caldwell's former place. We are unalterably opposed to Stale Treasurer's holding long terms of ofliee. In nearly every instance where defalcations have occurred in this ofliee, it was from carelessness and neglect and long tenure of of fice. Two terms is long enough for Stale Treasurer. The first year of the Republican administration lias just dosed, and, the question naturally arises, what lias it accomplished? A Washing v toll correspondent of the press an swers the question tritely : "Nothing worthy of even a single line in the history of the country.” It is stated that negroes will 1111 dertate to colonize and rule Okla homa.

It is given out at Washington that the Republicans will offer no tariff bill, relieving an over-burdened peo ple. during the present Congress. In stead, the treasury looters have raised the duties (taxes) on many articles, by special hills, as a reward to certain manufacturers for money given which elected Harrison. Thus the corruptionists hope to con tinue to rule this country, but in this they are deceived, for the con sumers and producers are awakening on Ibis important subject, and Re publican downfall will result in 1HH2. in the past five years here vve have printed column upon column on tlie effects of the tariff, ami will print more in the future. WORSE THAN ROBBERY. Republican Outrage in the Lower House of Congress — Cato’s Seat Stolen for Foathorstone. Wednesday, the final decision and vote was taken in the Lower House of Congress, by the Republicans, in stealing Representative Cate’s seat for the mongrel Featherstone. Some two weeks since this result was virtu al!\ accomplished by decision of their committee on elections, before whom l’owell Clayton, Poker Jack McLure, Hlocks-of-Five Dudley, and other Republicans. appeared in Fealherstonc’s behalf, and we see it stated, it was by special request of C layton that Cate was unseated. It is one of the most outrageous and shameful acts ever done by any leg islative body of men. and press dis patches state that a large number of decent Republicans absolutely re fused to participate in it. leaving the house and refusing to vote, and had all the Democrats been at their post, Cate would have been retained these tardy members were princi pally from New York, a few from the South, South Carolina and Tennessee. Kvcrv Democrat who thus absented himself should be promptly retired. Mr. Cate made a magnificent speech, refuting the foul slanders against Ar kansas, especially regarding the charges of fraud and intimidation in his own district, and showed that on ly by tlie direct evidence of one ne gro (while a number of reputable white men proved the contrary) was any fraud attempted to be estab lished. Hon. T. C. McRae also made a ringing speech in defense of Arkansas. Relow we give some interesting points of detail, taken from press dispatches: Wasihnotos, March •>. Mr. Cate was turned out <>f the House of Rep resentatives to-day and Featherstonc was sworn in. Mr. Cate opened the argument to-day. Mr. Hill, of Illinois, a Republican, asked permission to say a few words, lie was going to make a speech for Cate. The Republicans knew this and fearing the consequences hooted him down. 1'hey absolutely refused to allow him the floor to say a word. A standing vote was first taken, and eight Republicans voted with the Democrats against the previous ques tion. However, when tlie ayes and noes were taken, Tom Reed came down on the lloor and whipped all his men into line save Hill. Kven then, however, the vote stood 141 to 141, or only three Republican major ity. Had the Democrats been on hand the previous question could have been voted down and ('ate could have been retained. The next vote was on a resolution by Springer, of Illinois, recommit ting the ease to the elections commit tee, with instructions to go to Arkan sas and take testimony in the ease and then report. By litis time, how ever. Reed had his linger pretty well in shape and the resolution was voted down, as was the minority report de claring Cate's election. Judge llouk escorted Featherstono up to the Speaker, and he was sworn in. In speaking of the ease to-night Mr. Crisp, the leading Democrat of the committee, said: ” There is no 11si- of trying any more election cases. This simple shows they are deter mined to turn Democrats out whose seats are contested, whether they were elected or not. It is the most outrageous decision ever made by the House. On the testimony of one colored man they nullified the re turns from Independence township, the sworn returns from which gave Cate 224 votes. They believed the evidence of one negro rather than the returns sworn to by live white men, and deducted from Cate 22 1 votes, which, if counted for him, would, according to their own the or\. have given Cate a majority of ITS. There is not a line in the record assailing the integrity of this return except the evidence of the ne gro. The Republicans decided the ease upon e\-paitee evidence taken in Memphis without notice to Cate, which evidence does not, in fact, bear upon the case, but relates b> acts alleged to have been occurred in Crittenden county the July before.” Other Democrats are even more indignant than Crisp and say the Re publicans simply stole the seat. THE BLAIR BILL. The irrepressible Blair has been indicting some of his long-winded speeches on Congress recently, but scarcely anybody seemed to pay any attention to him. and it is now evi dent that his pet bill to educate the people at federal expense will be de feated, when it comes up for passage, lie has been abusing the newspapers for not publishing his speeches, and it is now given out that he will quit the Republican party if they do not rally promptly to his support. Well, let him go where the woodbine twineth. and retire to the shades of his native obscmity. His bill smacks too nineli of paternalism and central i/.alion to command the suffrages of Democrats, and it i' to be hoped and thought that there is a suflieient number of patriotic Republicans left to insure its overwhelming defeat.

Mayor and Common Council of Prescott, Ark. : In the discharge of our duty as health oilicers and sanitarians, we de sire respectfully to submit to your honorable bod\ : That the natural drainage of the cit v is good, and that there is no natural reason why any considera ble quantity of water and tilth should accumulate in the corporate limits, there to stagnate and breed pesti lencc. It is well known that all stagnant water, in hot weather, breeds germs of disease, and with onr natural drainage there is no excuse for stag nation. Your Hoard of Health recommend to your Honorable Council that im mediate steps be taken, before the heat of summer commences, to have property owners clean up all fester ing. stagnant and putrid pools of water, mud and tilth upon or adja cent to their residences or places of business. The neglect of the careless involves the lives and health of all. and as a eit\ government, your duty should be to remove any and every condition inconsistent with the public welfare. Pools of water should not be al lowed to collect in the ditches, con taining possibly the carcasses of dead animals. Your attention is respectfully called to the condition of what is known as the "‘DcLay Hrickyard. And also to the collections in the rear of business houses, in crowded localities, where refuse, such as straw, shavings, old boxes and bar reJs are cast to moulder and rot. In crowded localities the privy is often a public nuisance, and should receive your early and constant at tention. There can, in the opinion of your Hoard of Health, be no where found so prolific a source of disease and death as in the neglect of human ordure. Privies are badly constructed, gen crall\, with the droppings falling in to stagnant water, or so arranged that it heats and hatches germs and odors to such a degree as to be of fensive to the senses. In private families this condition is generally attended to, but among the shops along llm principal streets and in al leys, where these places are visited by a considerable number of people in the day. tin1 atmosphere we breathe is loaded night and day with emenations calculated to engen der disease. Lime, such as is used by the scav enger. is only an absorhant and not a disinfectant or destroyer of germ life l’iie carbonate of lime is used. Phe chloride of lime disinfects and destroys germs. All of which is respectfully sub mitted by Yours, etc. K, W. Akmihtkap, M. 1)., IT L Hinton, M. I)., \V. K. Aknoi.u, M. D., \Y. (\ Wiv.HH.n, M. lb. Hoard of Health.

The world is full of deceptions and shams and humbugs. The great poel of nature, Shakspeare, was so much impressed with this truth that he de clared the whole world to be a stage j and that men and women were ac tors and players. The world de ceives us, society deceives us, ap pearances deceive us, and we de ceive ourselves. The wine glass, with its enticing red color, the Hash and glitter of wealth, the syren songs and smiles of beauty, the admiration [ and plaudits of the populace, have deceived thousands to their destruc tion. It has truly been said that ex- , perience is a dear school, but fools j will not learn in any other. Experi ence teaches us to place but little re liance on appearances, to distrust the suggestions of our own hearts, and to be governed by law and testimony in the conduct of our lives; and yet how few there are who are profited by lessons from these sources. It is sad to relied upon our liability to de ception along all lines of life; but es pecially is this true when we remem ber how liable we are to be deceived in reference to matters of moral and spiritual concernment. The text embodies a command to resist and overcome these deceptive agencies, thereby demonstrating con clusively that we are under no neces sity of being deceived. Now. how are we to avoid deception? How are ! we to know that we are not deceived ; ; or. if deceived, how can we under- j ceivc ourself? The answer is. by the 1 application of the touchstone of di vine truth, by submitting ourselves lo the tests which the inspired word 1 prescribes in all such cases. Such are the following: "If any man have not the spirit of Christ, he is none of His.”—"As many as are led by the spirit, they are the sons of Hod.”— "If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.”—"If ye love me, keep my command- i meats,”—and many other of like im-1 port, all of which, if faithfully and honestly applied, will uncover and disclose our true spiritual condition. If a man is deceived as to the best : methods of farming, merchandising, 1 or running a newspaper, or any other business, his loss at most is but tem poral in its nature, and confined to this world : but if he is deceived con cerning the things which make for his everlasting peace and happiness, his loss will tie incalculable and eter nal in its duration. Hence the necessity of the admonitory warning, be not deceived ; and we have the further assurance that Cod is not mocked—lie knows exactly where we stand, he guages our real moral status every moment of our lives by an infallible standard, and can not In1 swerved from the inflexible laws of right and justice by the fulla ees and deceptions of man. In order to strengthen the caution against self deception, our attention is forcibly directed to the analogous operation of law in the physical world: “Whatsoever a man soweth. that shall he also reap.” Now it is ! evident that if a man sows wheat, he shall reap wheat, and the same is true of any other good seed ; and the converse is equally true, that if lie sows thistles or thorns he will reap a harvest of thistles and thorns. So in the moral world, he that sows to the flesh, or animal nature, shall reap corruption, that is, decay, death, de struction ; while he that soweth to the spirit shall reap life everlasting. It will be observed that there are on ly two kinds of sowing, one to the tiesh and the other to the spirit; one issuiug in corruption and death, and the other ill everlasting life. Live according to the senses of the lower nature and death is the inevitable re sult; live according to the dictates of the spirit or higher nature, and the promise is the unspeakable gift of eternal life. In religion, the laws of the natural world are transferred to a higher plane, but they are es sentially the same laws. The man who persistently and habitually vio lates the physical laws of his health and well-being, just as surely invites and insures an early death as the man who obeys these laws has the promise of a long and useful life. All law is inexorable, and in the spiritural world the penalty for its1 violation is death. Happily for the human family an adequate and suita ble provision has been made, by which all who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ shall not perish but shall have everlasting life. Christ has become our substitute, has en dured the pangs of death in our place, and now all who accept him as their Savior are redeemed from the power of death, and saved with the power of an endless life. Header, are you following the mul titude to do evil, drifting with the current, vainly solacing yourself with the hope that all is well? If so, let me admonish you, be not deceived in the most important matter that con cerns you, “But return unto the Lord and he will have mercy upon 3011, and unto our Cod, for lie will abundantly pardon.” ( hint ham’" ('hill Tonir is a» ku • vv!« t.i In* tin- la*>t.
