Yesterday 'twas 1874 ; to-day it is
1875. Yesterday closed the record of
a memorable year, and toyday a new
record Is commenced, not to be fully
written np and closed for a twelve

Secretary Bristow gives stronger
. evidence day by day of his eminent
fitness tor the responsible position
which he occupies In the Cabinet.
The position required a man not only
(Competent and honest, but a man
.rbo was not afraid to do his duty a
nian of nerve. It will be remembered
that the Government gave immense
subsidies to build tbe Central and
Union Pacific Railroads, not only in
lands, but In bonds which commanded
the cash. The Gover merit subsidies
thus given built the roads in fact
tbe officers and projectors of those
(Corporations accumulated immense
fortunes out of the Government sub
.sidies given to build tliee roads. In
return for enriching these men, and
giving them a magnificent railway
out of which to coin millions in the
future. Government asked that the
roads should make annual reports of
tbelr earnings, and should pay into
tbe National Treasury five per cent,
of their gross receipts. This tliese
"bloated monopolies" utterly refuse
to do. ' They not only decline to
make any report, but refuse to. pay
over a dollar. But then you see Sec
retary Bristow don't propose to stand
any "foolishness' from these kid
gloved millionaires. Upon tlieir re
fusal to make the returns required by
law, be took their rose-colored reports
to the. stockholders, and in a jiffy fig--nred
up their annual receipts, and
. from these made out his little bill of
-three million one hundred "and forty
, eight thousand dollars, due the Gov
ernment by these railroads, and sent
it in by his messenger, and demanded
the money- Tbey still refused to pay,
but offered to make out their reports,
which the Secretary declines to receive.
. Secrerary Bristow proposes to sue
these arrogant and purse, proud mo
nopolies for the money tbey owe the
people, and compel tliem to come
down with the kale seed. This is
tbe kind ot a man Bristow is, and
he's tbe man for us. - Let a united
people stand by our Secretary, and
aid him in compelling these wealthy
and law defying corporations to pay
,every farthing they owe. Bully for

The emigrant ship Costpatriek was
burned at sea November 19th. Two
boats containing sixty souls succeeded
In getting away from the vessel, one of
which has not been beard from. The
.other was picked up by -the British
. ship Sceptre, having been ten days on
the lone waters, and all on board hav
ing died but five, two of whom died
"before reaching St. Helena.
Later dispatches say that when the
fire was discovered, eighty persons,
'mostly women, rushed into one boat,
which was capsized and all in
drowned. Soon afterwards all the masts
fell, killing many passengers. An ex
vlosion followed. Tbe total loss of
life is now estimated at 474.

Senator Wright of Iowa, proposes
certain amend met its to tbe Constitu

the office of President. Tbey provide
that the President shall be elected by
the direct vote of the people; tliat he
shall hold for a term of six years; that
he shall not be eligible for a second
term; that a majority of all the votes
cast be necessary to an election; that
a second election shall be held in case
no one shall have a majority at the
first, onlv the two highest candidates
t be voted for at the second election.
Such amendments will doubtless meet
the general approval of the citizens of
the United States.

SARD1S, M19S., Dec. 12, 74.
The disturbances of last summer in this
State seem to have set in for the winter.
The Lesislntnre convenes, under the law,
on the first Tuesday in January; but the
Governorlias, I suppose, deemed the emer
gency sufficiently urgent 0 demand an
earlier assembling of that body,: and he
has issued his proclamation, calling the
mentliers to the capital in estra session on
the 17th inst. The wisdom of this act is
seriously questioned by thinking men;
but as everybody who knows the Uover
nor knows that he is a person if very small
calibre, I doubt if anybody Is surprised,. or
would be at even a greater folly than this.
There has been a disturbance and blood
shed at Vicksburjj, It Is true, and it might
have been anticipated after what occurred
there a few months ago, and what has
been going on there since. Some of the
negro officers have been acting very badly,
and several of them were indicted by the
grand jury at the last term of the Circuit
Court. The records upon which the in
dictments were based are said to have
since been surreptitiously removed or de
stroy ad ; and as they were in charge of the
very officials themselves, the presumption
and the only natural one is, that these
men did the deed. In addition to this, the
negro Sheriff, who is also tax collector, and
the collection of hundreds of thousands of
dollars, was proceeainsr to collect the taxes
without having nrst given a good noun
(which the law reimlrt), and the Hoard
of Supervisors (negroes also, or a majority
of theui), refused to meeet and comnell the
Sheriff to make the bond; anil the tax-
navers. having leen so often swindled by
dishonest office-holders, di niHnUuil that
the Sheriff should either makes soni bond
or resign, and charged that the '"cai-iict

ported these facts to the meeting. It was
resolved to adjourn to the Sheriff's office
and demand his resignation. And tills
was done accordingly, and the Sheriff
(Peter Crosby) yielded to the demand and
went to Jackson, where he made such a
statement as created quite a furor, and
caused the tJovernor to Issue a proclama
tion against what he called a "riot." In
the mean time Crosby's friends got to-

Article thirteen, of t lie Constitution.of the
State, which was adopted In 1368. and nnnn
the approval of which by Congress, the
State was restored to representation as
one of t he States of the Union, provides.
in effect, that beforeanv amendments nm.

seinb)yff the State, which, on tbe eigh

providing for a Convention to frame a
new Constitution, mrsuant to this act,
at an election held on the thirtieth of June,
1874. the Convention was annroved and
delegates were chosen there, who assem-
Diea on ine louneenin 01 last Jnly and
formed a new Constitution, the schedule
of which provided for the election of n
entire new set of State officers in a man
ner contrary to the then exlstinir elee.ttnn
laws of the State. On the thirteenth of
ipciooer, mit, mis constitution, as therein
provided, was submitted to the people for

to tbe election returns, was approved hZ
a large majority of those qualified to vote
thereon, and at the same election persons
were chosen to fill n the State, county and

gress is now investigating the political
affairs of Arkansas, I have declined to in

repugnant to the public, and to the feel

A 1 merely destgn to sate facts, in or

conclusions, I deem It unnecessary to add
anything to what, the President has said,
except that Smith is not, reararded bv
