the KadicaU begin to see that they
made a great blunder in giving the negro
the right to vote. If Grant had not sent !
troops to South Carolina, Tilden would
have carried that State by '40,000 majoi i-
ty. Tho presence of the soldiers made
the negroes believe that it was their duty
to vote for Hayes and Chamberlain, the
men supported by their idol, Graut. "It was
was case of military bull-dozing on a grand
scale. All the Southern States have been
increased in political power by the negro
vote and all of them gave Democratic ma
jorities kt the last election, though Flori-
4 da and Louisiana have been counted Radi-
carVby- their rojruish Retuininy Boards.
The Radical leaders see that they can no
longer manage the "ward of the nation"
and their next move will be the to deprive
him of his vote. The President in his
last Message favored an education quali
fication for votjing or the colonizing of
poor Sambo. The object being in both
cases to get rid of him as a voter. Redfield,
the correspondent of that Radical and
venomous paper, the Cincinnati Commer
cial, has been preparing the way for some
months "to take the negro out of politics."
His last letter closes thus :
"The blacks in the cotton States, as a
political power of service to the Republi
cans, will amount to no more than blades
of grass. There is no such voting materi
al elsewhere on earth ; and tho surprise is
that any one should have supposed that
these simple, obedient, timid, docile peo

NOTES FROM ARKANSAS.
Landscape, Soil, Timber, Minerals, Farming'
Editobs Watchmas :
"Arkansas lies between the 33d and 37th de
grees of north latitude and contains 52,198
Apian miles. It was admitted into the union
June 15. 1830. The Landscape is varied and
incliuit'ft the rich valley, through which over
3,1)00 ni iles of navigable rivers and their mul
titude of tributaries couise their ways from the
uplands, hillside, and mountain tops of the
Ozark range. Thiw loeated with thin varied
surface, an agreeable and temperate climate is
insured. Arkana i exempt from the droughts
and winds of Texas, the Indians and grass
hoppers of Kansas, Nebraska and the Rocky
Mountain region and the cold storms and floods
of the middleand north eastern States. The
soil is as varied as the surface and the greater
part of it iiMinsurpaased for its richness by any
locality in ihe world. The. uplands produce
grains and grasses which challenge the cora
eelttion of the prairie rtatea of the uorth west.
The Ozark Mountains extend through the
north wectern portion of the State and are
capped by plateaus on which the papaw, black
walnut, Kiigar maple and grape flourish moat
luxuriantly. Upon these highlands apples are
grown and eider pressed, which rival the pro
duct of New jersey and New York. The
peaches and melons in the first year of their
systematic cultivation, drove from the St. Louis
markets the fruits of Illinois and Indiana.
Arkansas cotton carries the premium over that
of any other State of the South west. The
Timber of Arkansas is greater in quantity and
variety and superio in quality to that of any
other Slate in the Union, including five species
of oak. two of pine, both kinds of walnut, all
kinds of hickory and ash, also poplar, cypress,
gtirn, cedar and sassafras.
The timber of Arkansas is to-day worth more
than the whole aftieued valine of tfc State and
This unrivaled preparation has per
