Ad dress all communications to THE PICAYUNE, Prescott, Ark. The Arkansas Legislature conven es Monday week. It is expected to de much important work. The usual number of murders were committed during the holidays—cau sed from the whisky fiend. Itv all means push our State ex position. Every county should take a lively interest in it. Me hope to see Nevada county properly repres ented therein. ('ongress did not formally adjourn during the holidays, but it had just as well, as but few members remain ed at the Capital. It was a Repub lican trick to keep up appearances. A volume of a newspaper is a year. ( Some papers shorten the lime to a less period, so as to claim age they are not entitled to, in order to gain influence. All know this is not rigid._ It seems from the sum up of the Memphis Appeal-Avalanclie that Fish back will have a much larger vote than many thought. It is hardly probable he will run Senator Jones anything like a close race. The public sentiment of the coun try is overwhelmingly with the dem ocratic Senators in their efforts to de feat the Force bill, and will continue so, no matter what tactics they may adopt to accomplish the desired end. . Late press dispatches say the Re publicans in the Senate, will make a stong pull to pass a gag rule shut ting off debate upon the Force bill, this week, and then pass the bill it self. bins party of infamies will never lie satisfied until the people stamp it out of existence. M. A. Dauphin, President of the Louisiana lotery, died on the 28th, ultimo, at New Orleans. Thus by degress this sink of sin dies out. As the concern cant advertise to whom money and letters may be sent, now that Dauphin is dead, the lottery will have less chance of success. The ..mi v i . the democratic par ty never looked brighter than it does today, and the rank and file of the party look, as they have a right to look, to the leaders of the party to exercise the greatest care to see that no step is rashly taken that will have a tendency to mar the brightness of that future. If such care be taken we have a reasonable right to expect not only to control the House of Re presentatives of the Fifty-third Con gress and elect the next President, but also to have a majority in the United States Senate after Mach 4th, 18!I3. Senator Cray, of Delaware, has some sensible ideas about reciproci ty, and lie has introduced a resolu tion in the Senate authorizing the administration to open negotiations for the purpose of farming recipro city treaties between the United States ami Mexico, and the United States and Canada. Notwithstand ing the fact that reciprocity treaties with those two countries would be of more real benefit to the people of this country than all of those propos ed by Mr. Blaine with the South and Central American republics, there isn’t the slightest probability that the republican Senators will support Mr. Ofay’s resolution. It isn’t real re ciprocity that the republicans favor, but only an imitation that will serve f.ir the time being to blind the voters of this country. Township Convention. I’rexeott. Ark., Dec. 27.

Senator Hoar <)i< 1 not, it i* a safe thing to say, enjoy his Christmas dinner, lie was too baillv disgust ed at his failure to get a rote upon the Force bill this week. He thought he was alright the other day when he offered a resolution proposing a re cess until H o'clock in the evening and a continuous session of the Sen ate from that time until the bill was disposed of. Hut lo and behold when noses were counted there was no quorum present and the point was quickly made by a Democratic Senator who had remained in the chamber for that very purpose, and, most aggravation of all to Mr. Hoar was the fact that, in spite of all his coaxing and threatening, seventeen republican Senators were among the absentees. The republican mountain, after weeks of painful labor, has brought forth a mouse in the shape of a rule to to cut off debate at the pleas ure of the majority which has been reported to the Senate by Mr. Aid rich. But the Democrats arc not at all alarmed ; on the contrary they are confident of their ability to de feat this proposed revolutionary overturning of the precedents of a century, and in any event fully de termined that it shall not be done until every parliamentary expedient has been exhausted in the effort to prevent it. If Mr. Harrison wished to select a gentleman entirely without a na tional reputation to succeed the late Justice Miller on the bench of the United States Supreme Court he cer tainly succeeded when he nominated Henry S. Brown, of Michigan, to the vacancy. Said a republican Senator: “It was really amusing when the nomination was announced to see prominent Senators going from one to the other in order to find out who this Mr. Brown is. The Michigan Senators speak well of him but 1 doubt if there are a dozen oth er Senators who ever heard of him before. Representative Blanchard, of Louisiana, lias offered a resolution in the House providing for a general Indian investigation. The same gentleman lias offered a resolution instructing the House committee on Banking and currency to report a bill to increase the amount of money in circulation to $50 per capita. He sets forth in a preamble the fact of its being impossible in many parts of the South to get an advance of even $10 a bale on cotton owing to the scarcity of money. The republicans of the Senate arc getting their party into a nice snarl on the financial question. The re cent republican caucus approved a bill, in the hope of conciliating the free coinage republican Senators, that provided for the issuing of treasury notes, based on purchases of silver bullion to make up the de ficiency whenever the amount of nat ional bauk circulation fell below $180,000,000, but the Finance com | mittee to which the bill was referred | when introduced, has cut out that section of the bill entirely and put in place of it one authorizing the Sec retary of the Treasury to issue $200,000,000 of 2 per cent bonds, and the amended bill has been re . ported back to the Senate by that | strong and vigilant foe of silver, Senator Sherman. The silver men are mad as hornets and Senator Stewart has already offered a free coinage amendment, to the bill, and overtures are being made to dem ocrats to support it. What the dent ocrats will do depends largely upon what action the republicans who fa vor free coinage take upon the force bill. Senator Stewart will do all he can to get them to oppose it. The House will pretend to be do ing business for the rest of Christ mas week, but it had no quorum when it adjourned from Tuesday un til today, and it is not probable that it will have again until after the tirst of the year. The Senate finding tha* it would be Impossible to get a quorum present on Christmas day adjourned from Wednesday until Saturday. Senator Aldrich has promised to give 21 hours notice be fore calling up the closure resolution, Sand as there will he a number of re publican absentees during the rest of this month it may not be taken up before January.
