Itlore about Arkansas.
Both parties in Arkansas have
declined to accept the terms pro
posed by Att'y Gen. Williams as
telegraphed to l ittle Rock. This
was to be expected. After having
been under arms for several weeks
the partisans are eager tor a fight
and will not listen to milk and but-
ter propositions. Att'y Gen. Wil
liatns aught to known that preach-
ing morals to belligerents is throw
ing pearls to the swine. A timejjl
energetical interference by the
Central Administration would have
solved the perplexed question at
ouce and saved the administration
the humiliation ot being snubbed.
After the protracted consultation of
the Cabinet we expected something
better and more decisive than this
puerile attempt -ot persuading the
combattants to lay down their arms
and submit to the decision of a
legislative body that none respects.
Instead of bringing peace to the
country, the undecisive policy of
the administration has caused the
dogs of war to be loosened, and
bloodshed has followed immediate-
ly on the heels of Grants pr.oposi
tiou. The Government will now do
what it. ought to have done at once.
It will put down domestic violence
by force of arms, aud when that is
done, and not until then, it will
be time to enforce the decrees of the
The Galveston News objects to
the idea of invoking judicial inter-
ference with matters of the legisla-
tive or executive direction and re-
sponsibility. Wc would like to
kuow what tribunal it would select
to settle difficulties arising under
the laws and constitution of
the State? Will it make Gov-
ernors aud Legislatures infal-
lible despots whose decrees must be
submitted to under all circumstanc-
es, no matter whether they are
authorized by the laws and consti-
tution of the titate ? Is there no
authority to arrest unlawful pro-
ceedings ot these high funtiona-
We flatter ourselves to have a
faint idea of the spirit of republican
institutions. It is the will of the
people as expressed in their consti
tution which is supreme authority
lor all officials, aud this constitu-
tion provides remedies against all
infringement of the same. There
are three coordinate departments
governiug the country, the execu-
tive, legislative and judicial; it is
the proviuce ot the legislature to
adops laws, it is tin- province of the
executive to euroive the acts ot the
legislature, and it is tbe province of
the judiciary to finally decide all
questions of law arising under the
constitution of the State. After
that is done it becomes the impe-
rative duty of the executive to en-
force the decrees of the court.
This is plain "aglish and common
sense. If the courts are corrupt it
is the fault of the people who are
either directly or indirectly respon-
sible for their appointment or elec-
tion. Rut until the corruption is
proven, let the courts be re-
We cau easily understand why
the Galveston News and other pa-
pers abhor this doctrine. If they
did not they would be compelled to
condemn the present administra-
tion that got into power in defiance
oflaw and constitution. The News
would make the Supreme Court
Nkw Yoiik, May 12— A Little liock
special contains the following items: The
regulars yesterday took all the arms at
the arsenal to pieces, to preveut either
the I>rooks or Baxter forces from using
The raft with arms from up the river
has arrived safely.
There was great excitement yesterday
morning in Little Rock during a skirmish
across the river. Col. White, of Baxter's
forces, was wounded in the leg. After
skirmishing for some two hours, a com-
pany of regulars crossed the river and
stopped both parties, releasing a train of
cars which Baxter's men had just then
seized. Four of Baxter's men are reported
killed, and two of Brooks's men killed aud
The clerk of the Circuit Court has sworu
in the members of the'Legislature.
The regulars have thrown up another
liiti iicade across Markham street.
Col. Rose has telegraphed to Gen. Sher-
man for a company »f regular cavalry.
Washington, May 12.—A reply has
bern received from Brooks, declining to
accede to the terms proposed by the Presi-
dent through tho Attorney General. The
telegram will be the subject of a Cabinet
consultation to-d^y, and it is probable
that the general government, after having
exerted its best influences for the preser-
vation of peace anil the restoration of
political harmony at Little Rock, will
now decide definitely ou the case, audi-
that means will be taken to have its de-
cision enforced against any opposition.
Washington, May 12.—The Star says a
dispatch has been received from Governor
Brooks in response to the telegram from
tbe President, sent to him last night, de-
clining to accede to the terms proposed.
The telegram was the subject of some
discussion at the Cabinet meetiug to-day,
and it may be that the President will be
called upon to decide definitely some time
to-day in the contest. The refusal of
Brooks to accede to the request, made by
the President in the iuterest of peace,
will very likely lessen the communication
with his party, and it appoars very prob-
able that, the next advices from here may
be sent to the United States forces at
Little Rock, containing the decision of
the government., and asking that all par-
ties shall be made to respect it.
Washington, May 12—Judge Lawrence
oliairmaii of Committee on War Claims,
which, as a sub committee, has recently
had under consideration the question as
to whether the government could take
without compensation the property of
citizens in the lately rebellious States
after August 20, 18G6, when tho war was
proclaimed closed, will report to the
committee to morrow, in the negative,
and that the government is in honor
bound to pay for tho use of any property
appropriated by the military authorities,
without refereuco to previous political
status of the person whose property was
Washington, May 12.—Secretaries Rob-
inson aud Belknap, and Gen. Sherman,
and several other oflicers of the army,
have gone to ilarrisburg to exult over tho
exploits of the Army of the Potomac.

and investigate the cause of disturbances
there. Laid over.

persons expressing dissent to the preten-

Intend to encourage opposition to any
ohurcli or denomination ; nor do I intend
to pull down or break up or run opposi

I now Bay that, the statement publicly
made at the barbecue against the A. M.
E. Church to the eft'eet that said church
got up a picnic in opposition to the M. E.
Church, is false. I wish to inform the
public through the press of this city that
the doctrine of the old mother church is
to build up and not to pull down. I there-
fore deny the charge that the members of
