I)K3 ARC CITIZEN.
■». C. MORRILL, FDITOR. .DE3 ARC, ARKANSAS': WEDNESDAY..HAY II 1859. "R K M O YSId7 We have removed the “Citizen Orrict,” to our new rooms, at the corner of Lyon and Walton streets, up stairs— south of*G. W. Vaden’s Warehouse—im mediately opposite the Steamboat Lnnding. —-♦ *-•--— Democratic Ranger.—A new paper, bearing the above title, is to be issued at Clarendon, Monroe county, about the first of June next. Messrs. Nichols & Good win, both practical printers, are the pro prietors. Success to you, gentlemen, may you “ fare sumptuously," and your enter prise reward you richly. Hon. A. H. Greenwood, late member of Congress from the First Dis trict of Arkansas, lias accepted the Com missionership of Indian Adairs. -*. Foreign News—Prospects of a General European War.—The news from Europe by the Niagara leaves but little room to hope that the difficulties in Europe will be adjusted without war. In truth, it can scarce bo averted; Austria is, as ever, inexorable in her demands, 9 t)(l flin Vxl'vlno ennm ilolnemieoR to maintain their position. It is generally conceded that the contest will be between Sardinia and Piedmont backed by France, and Austria backed by most of the German Stales. The European powers, generally, seem lo have made full preparation for the approaching strife. -- JSSr* The New Orleans Crescent no tices a ridiculous threat of the Louisville Journal against the people of Louisiana and Mississippi, for asserting their right to change their form of government when ever their rights and interests demand it. The Journal it appears threatens “to de scend with its millions of hardy western yeomanry upon the Delta, and subduo all such rebellious people.” The Crescent responds as follows : “ When that event happens, let the Journal bring on its “'millions of bold, hardy freemen, who dwell on the upper waters of the Missis sippi j” to them add ‘.he myriads of Ohio, In diana and Illinois Abolitionists; let Pennsyl vania, New York and all of the New England States swell the crusading hordes millions more, to plunder and oppress those who never harmed them, and al! can not conquer and hold the single State of Louisiana, with its “scant population,” twelve months 1 We have a friend—we have always heretofore considered him our worst enemy, but who.in such a case would be a friend indeed—before whom the armed hosts of ail tile earth would wither and die in a single year—whose saffron sword would prove as potential and merciless as was that of the Destroying Angel when he smote tlie legions of Senaehorib—and to contend with whom would be madness—downright in sanity. The yellow fever would protect us and the Gulf States, if all things else failed ! Let the Journal look over the appropiatc sta tistics, and calculate how long the utterly un acclimated, “hold, hardy millions” it speaks of, would last during an epidemic season, i quartered in dense bodies in different parts of j the Southern States. Epidemics would surely prevail among them, and a nine-fold decima tion would assuredly take place between each July and January. The “millions'” would I right speedily disappear from the face of the I earth, and.the borders of the “ upper waters j of the Mississippi” would quickly become ! destitute of male population. -o - Abatement of the Excitement—Tho Rupture between the Government j Officials, etc. St. Louis, May 2.—The Salt Lake j correspondent of the Republican, under, date of the Sth ult., says that the excite ment there has somewhat abated, and that this is attributed in part to the knowledge ! the Mormons now have of the practical i working of the Jury law passed by the late Legislature, it being a complete nulli ty to the punishment of any crime com- j mined by the Mormons. Under this law clerks of the Mormon county 'courts select i the grand and petit juries of the federal ! courts, and such restrictions are imposed j as disqualify every gentile in the Territo- , ry The rupture between the Judiciary and Executive is staled to be open and irre concilable, unless the Governor yields, which he wdlnotdo; and if the Admin istration moves in tlie matter detrimental to the Judges, they will resign, and pub lish a manifesto disclosing darker and bloodier scenes than any heretofore ex posed. Judge Cradlebnugh has adjotyned the Court at Provo, being unable to accom plish anything. Brigham Young delivered a temperate discourse in the Tabernacle, on the 7th. 6®“ Gov. Me,i try is the most fortu nate of alt the Kinsas Governors. The Ohio Statesman copies an article from a Kansas paper, highly commendatory of his official conduct, and says: “ Tne papers o! the Territory very genetally apeak of the administration of Gov. Medary with satisfaction. He ap pears lobe gaining the confidence of the people to a greater extent than any of iiis predecessors. The various responsibili ties and duties of Lis '.'fi: appear to be met and discharged directly and wisely. May he continue to have success in his management of the affairs of Kansas." Death ot Cut. Dick Nash.—Our New Orleans exchanges announce the death, in that city, of the well-known ami universally popu- > lar Dick ’'^ash,,’ as he was familiarly called ! throughout the valley of the Mississippi. -The Kansas Herald states that the offi- j cial vote on the State Constitution was 6.374: j majority against it, 3 536. The<otal number of voters in the Territory is estimated at go,000. -The Taxan ays that fourteen hundred j hales of cotton f.al bain shipped from Sun Antonio to Mexico, and sold from nineteen to 1 twenty-two cent- per pound. From Washington. Washington. May 2.—Dispatches were received to-day at the navy depart ment from Captain Jarvis, dated Vera ! Cruz, April 27, confirming the news j brought by the Tennessee of the desper-! ate battle between Miramon and the liber-' als near the City of Mexico, boll-, claiming the victory. He adds a postscript, just ns die mail was closing, announcing that the liberal party had raised the siege of the City of Mexico. The State department received nothing by the Tennessee's mail from Mr. Me Lane. The nnvy department, in accordance with the law passed last session, has abol ished the coal agencies. These positions were the most lucrative under the Govern ment. Coal is to be purchased hereafter ns other material for the navy. Washington, May 2.—Captain Jar vis, commander of the s!oop*of-war Savan nah, in a letter to the navy department, dated off Sacrificios, April 21, while speaking of Mexican affairs, says: •* From all I can learn the crisis is at hand, amj a month or less will about determine j the fate of one or oilier of the parties.” Me adds : “ The Prussian frigate sailed on the 13th for Norfolk, via Tampico, and on the 20ib, the British ship Tartar, and the gunboat Jasper left Sacrificios. It was reported that the Ciesar and Diadem woulJ sail for England, on the 20th of April. The navy department is also in receipt of dispatches from Capt. Lavalette, dated Gulf of Spezzia, April 8, in which he says that Conterno Ottairo, a musician on board the Wabash, who was seized by the Sardinian authorities on the ground that lie was a native of that country and was absent from the recruiting of 1839, has been released, as, on examination, it did not appear that he owed, us was claimed, military service to that government. The correspondence shows that Capt. Lava letle took prompt action. Secretary Cass lias recently been pros trated by an attack of illness, but front which there is every prospect that he will soon recover. The government has received volumi nous dispatches from Nicaragua, but they throw no new light on events in that quar ter. The Belly contract has not been confirmed by the Congress of Nicaragua. The decree of the free transit passed by ibis Ijody is to he a law if the President of that republic deems it advisable to issue his proclamation to that effect. -*-♦-». ®ST* YY'e clip the following paragraphs from the Memphis Avalanche of the olh inst., and commend their perusal, espe cially the first, to that class of men who believe in railroads with “ water privile ges.” M e m p n i s and Little II OCK 11 AIL ROAD.—The rood trom here to the St Francis river—the completion of which caused so much rejo; .ig at the time—has been useless and worthless lor the past three months. It is all under water, and in some places as deep us ten or twelve feet. Not a car load of passengers or one of freight has passed over the road for many weeks. The locomotive is rusty with disuse, and the whole concern is in the most melancholy, deplorable and di lapidated condition. Twenty years ago the government of the United States, and while Arkansas was a Territory, sent Ma jor Bowman out with a large foree, hacked up by ample appropriations from Congress, to construct a road leading from opposite Memphis to Little Hock. That officer went to Arkansas and constructed the whole distance to the St. Francis river, with the exception of about eight miles, one of the most splendid roads through an almost impenetrable swamp, that ever stood as a monument to the skill of the engineer of the tnumfieenee of a govern ment in any country. This road has with stood the overflows of nearly a quarter ot a century, and is to-day the most substan tial and prominent load in the whole South or South YY’est. This embankment, per manent and durable, all ready to the hands of the railroad company for the asking, ..1.i.i .i. ___i .... ,i,...i n..._i. the swamp, badly and insufficiently con structed, an almost hopeless loss. Let the iron in the present road be taken up before it rusts and becomes valueless by being so long submerged in water, and wail un til the next Legislature meets then get the use of the military road upon which to lay the iron. Arkansas Lands.—For a while, and when the river was at its highest, Arkan sas lands almost ceased to be a matter of sale, trade and traffic in this market. But yesterday there was a revival of affairs, and a considerable amount of lands changed iiantis at former prices. Improve ed plantations are in active demand and bring full prices. The large amounts ol the best Colton lands in the world are in viting the hand of the enterprising anti industrious to make them the most pro ductive and valuable in the world, and in despite of these overflows they will be cul tivated to the very last acre. Our sister State presents the strongest and surest inducements to the man of capital of any State in this Confederacy, and those who bave*secured large and valuable tracts will find themselves independent and leave their children rich. We have heard that in North and South Carolina, Georgia, the uplands of Mississippi, Kentucky, and the eastern part of this Slate that hun dreds, in many counties, are making prepa rations to go to Arkansas this lull. The Slate Las now a population of about oOO, 000 persons, and we venture the predic tion that in five years that.number will be more than doubled. Oi R Course Toward Mexico.— New Y'ork, May 5.—The Herald of to day says: Y\re learn from Washington 1 that the Administration have adopted the < very laudable determination of strengthen ing Mr. McLaue’s hands and rendering : every support it can to the government of President Juarez, in view of the outra- i jeous course pursued by the madman Mi ramon toward our consul and citizens in : Mexico, and the refusal of the British . Minister to concede the official courtesy l of representing American interests during ■ die forced absence of Mr. Black. Such > 1 course is rendered necessary. Our resi- s Jems there may be forced to fly to the ' ;oast for refuge, and our fleet should be t strong euougi) to protect not only them a •ut the local authorities who shield them. 1 WAR IN EUROPE. In spite of all the rumors of Peace J Congresses, all the goings to and fro of j Ambassadors, ail the explanations ofMin- j isters, and all the peaceful professions of e all the crowned heads of Europe, the pub lic mind refuses to become tranquil, and the funds obstinately decline to believe in peace or prosperity. The opinion that the necessities of Louis Napoleon call 'for a war, aud the no less confirmed opinion that he will have that war in some form, regardh s- i -th of the interests of France and the desires of all humane men, grow, rather than decrease in strength, with every new development of affairs. Both Austria and France continue the most ac tive preparations for war ; the German States are compelled, in their modest little way, to do the same, and England and Sardinia are not far behind. Russia is too much interested in getting her revenge against the Western Powers for the war of five years ago, and her long-sought iso lation, ever to interfere in earnest in the interest of peace. She will almost neces sarily, supposing her Czar to have even the commonest of common sense, be driv en to foment aud aggravate difficulties be tween the Western Powers, rather than heal them. Russia has but little trade to be injured by a war, and great profit by being let alone in Eastern Europe. A general war between the Western Powers will extend practically the dominion of the Czar to long-coveted Constantinople. Any other policy would be Dot only con trary to the old traditions of the country and of all the Czars, but would also sub ject the present one to the danger of a Russian impeachment—which is assassin ation. We consider it incumbent on our feder al authorities to prepare to take such ad vantage of the coining contest in Europe as may be most to our interest. There is no possibility that we can do anything to stop it—very little that we can ever he imu’u up in 11. rye wish io ub isuuueu, just as Russia does, except that our wish is modified by a much larger commercial interest and an infinitely larger humanity than can be found in that great country. Nevertheless our Federal Government ought to prepare carefully and coolly to use the tumult of Europe in such a way as to promole the peace and prosperity of America. Events of such importance ought to be well studied out before band, and turned as far as is consistent with hon or to the benefit of this nation —[New Orleans Courier. Coriespomlence of the St. Louis Republican.] SANTA FE NEWS. Pikes Peakcrs Lining the. Road—Disap pointment .'Iwaiting Them—Enrolling for Sonora, iVc.—Indian Fight—The Crojis, S'c. Independence, April 30,1S.M). The Santa Fe mail reached here yes terday, bringing but little news of interest. Other than a slight fire in one of the shops adjoining the Plasa, there had been nothing to excite or disturb the quiet of the place. Business was dull, and will he so until the trains from the States arrive. The road, from the crossing of the Ai Icansas, was lined with Navnjoes and emi grants for Pike’s Peak. Many were still farther out, and far enough advanced to have reached the gold-fields ; but from a gentleman just in, we fear that a sad dis appointment awaits them. Those who had reached the “ diggings,” and others en route, were enrolling themselves in com panies for Arizona and Sonora. A mail is soon expected from California, on the central route. Lieut. Beale is on the road, and the troops were near the river. . On the 2d of April, a battle was fought in sight of. Zuux, between the- Navnjoes and a baud of the Apaches. Ten of the latter were killed, arid-eight of the former. The Navajoes lost four thousand sheep. The Zuni ludiana assisted the Apaches, and several were wounded. Emigrants are daily passing through tins place lor the goia-neius. Despite the recent cold weather, we have much fruit uninjured, and the wheat prospects ore flattering. ARRIVAL OF THE QUAKER CITY. New Orleans, May 5. The steamship Quaker City's mails ar rived from below to-day. Advices from Port-au-Prince, of the loth ult., state that the brig African, front New York, arrived at that port on the lSjfh, with thirty-five filibusters, and two huudred and forty guns, and other muni tions of war, having attempted to land at Cuevas Grandes. Cuba, and failed. The attoTiipt was made on the 7th ult. Tile boats were swamped, and the munitions lost. The African received one thousand jollars of advance money. The Spanish Consul of Hayti notified Gen. Concha, who had dispatched a steamer to' capture them. Nothing had been heard of other filibuster vessels. The Death or De Tocqueville.— Henry Alexis, Count De Tocqueville, he celebrated French statesman uud phil osophical historian, so well known to the jublie as the author of the celebrated work on Democracy in America, is dead. De Tocqueville was born iu 1S05, and re- ' reived an education of more than usual excellence, embracing those varied bran- < dies which are reflected in more matured 1 bruts in his very varied works. He was sent in 1S31, in company with the well < itiown Gustave de lleauuiout, on a mis- < 0 u-Ly the French-Govesmaient to-North - America. The results of his studies were < given to the world in ISilo. The work of i De Tocqueville was De la Democratic en ilmerique, in which “ the political insti- i utions of the United States were describ- . ■d in a masterly manner, and their learn- i tig philosophically investigated.” He ubsequently occupied positions iu France, t n 1S49. he was elected Vice-President of I he Assembly, and from June to October, 1 vas one of Louis Napoleon’s ministers. Since the coup d'etat, which made Louis Sfapoleou Emperor, he has been one of * hat band of French constitutionalists and i; nen of letters, who, “ divested of all au- « hority, yet, still not unattended by rever- | nee, have been permitted by the power ( 1 llicit has triumphed over them, to record ^ heir implied protest agaius its supremacy, nd to found on their cherished remem rauecs, aspirations for belter days.” | t rHE END OF THE SICKLES TEIAL. We quote from the Washington Consii ’ulion, of the 27th ult., the account of the j finale of this case. At the conclusion of giving the instruc Lions, Mr. Chilton, with the concurrence of the prisoner and hit counsel, offered to submit the case upon the instructions, without further argument. Mr. Quid, on the part of the prosecu tion, at once accepted the proposition. The case was given to the jury at ten minutes to two o'clock, p. m., and they re tired. At three o’clock, a general rush of per sons from the marshal’s office announced iliat the jury were coming in; and soon Lhe jury entered, amid loud cries of order from various parts of the court-room. The 1 jury entered the box and were called by the cleik, amid profound silence. The clerk then asked, “ Gentlemen of the jury, I have you agreed upon your verdict?” Mr. Arnold, the foreman, replied that they had. The clerk said, “ Stand up, Daniel E. Sickles.” The prisoner stood up, looking calmly j upon the jury. The clerk then said, “Gentleman of ihe jury, look upon the prisoner at the j bar: Do you find the prisoner at the bar guilty, as indicted, or not guilty?” The foreman replied, “ Not guilty.” The audience, heretofore so quiet, gave vent to a simultaneous shout, and all at tempt at restoring order was abandoned, for u few moments, by the officers. Those outside the bar instantly leaped toward the prisoner to congratulate him, and instantly a multitude of hands were stretched forth to grasp those of the pris oner, amid cheering, the waving of hats, and the wildest excitement. Mr. Stanton, in a loud voice, here ad dressed the court, asking that the prisoner be instantly discharged from custody; j It.' . 1 I "ii cil IUC tuuu U1UUCU. The greatest difficulty was experienced by the officers in preventing the crowd, who had completely taken possession of Mr. Sickles, from tearing his clothes from his person. In passing the jury-box, Mr. Sickles stopped for a moment to shake hands with the jury, when he was finally dragged from the court-house by the ex cited crowd, whose cheers and tries, min gled with congratulations, were almost deafening. Oat.-ide the court-house, the populace gave full vent to their approbation by three times three cheers, and, amid the univer sal excitement, Mr. Sickles entered the carriage of J. II. McBlair, Esq., and drove rapidly away, in company with his father and his counsel. At the conclusion of the proceedings at the court-house, the carriage of Mr. Mc Blair, luilowed by a large concourse of people, proceeded to ins residence oppo site Lafayette Square, where, when Mr. Sickles entered the iiouse, he was con gratulated by several .distinguished and undistinguished people, who called upon him. INIr. Sickles stood in the centre of tiro room, and bis friends grasped his hands, in turn, as they passed by. The vicinity of Mr. McBIair’s house was thronged until a late hour. Last evening, a number of gentlemen, admirers of the ability and eloquence dis played by the counsel retained by the de fence of the Hon. Daniel E. Sickles, in his late trial, paid them the compliment of a serenade. A detachment of the Marine Band were selected for this purpose, and, followed by a large concourse of-citizens, they pro ceeded to the National Hotel, where, after the execution of several beautiful airs by the band, Messrs. Stanton, Brady, Chilton, aud Magruder, appeared, and in prepriate--terms thanked the assemblage for the call, and alluded to the result of the recent trial. They were loudly cheered. The company then proceeded to Willard’s Hotel, where, in answer to loud calls, Mr. Graham responded, in an appropriate and beautiful speech, which was loudly cheered. Correspondence of the New iork Herald.] lire Slaughter of Prisoners—Dr. Duvall Among the Number—Threats of Mir amon—Excitement in Mexico, Etc. Mexico, April 18, 1839. Sixty-six is the number slaughtered and murdered by the church party at Tacu aya, after Degolbulo evacuated the place. Among the number are five Americans, four Englishmen, and several Germans tad Frenchmen. Dr. Duvall, the eminent English physi :ian, was shot for his acts of humanity in mending to the sick and wounded at the tospital of Tacuhaya. Such barbarous icts of the reaction parly have never been leard of before. Consul Black maybe massacred, either tere, at the capital, or on his way down. Vengeance is threatened on all foreign ;rs, and a number of merchants—mostly hose who have branches at Vera Cruz — ire to be banished from the country, for io other reason than because they paid heir duties to the established government iere, thus upholding the liberal govern nent. The impression caused by the whole sale butchery at Taeubaya cannot be de icribed. All are in a nervous state of ex dteraent here.
