I hereby certify that pending the
question of the e'cgibility of R. A.
Donalson, as representative of the county
of Gordon, before the military commis
sion, that I heard Capfc. Fred. Cox. say
that he had in his possession as evidence
against said Donaldson, an order issued
by said Donaldson as road commissioner
to Clabe Butler, of Gordon county.
David G. King.
The above certificate of Judge David
G. King seals upon Capt. Fred. Cox,
the radical candidate for the Senate
from this District, the crime of having
been mainly instrumental in having
Major R. A. Donaldson, ihe Democoatic
representative of Gordon county turned
out, and John Nesbitt, Radical sub
stituted in his stead.
The facts are these : Capt. Cox’s son
went to Clabe Butler’s and got ihe order
referred to by Judge King. Capt. Cox
told Judge King that he had the order
as evidence against Major Donaldson.
The order appeared iu evidence against
Major Donaldson on the trial. Th's
makes out the case fully. Capt. Cox a
short time ago denied publicly, that he
had had any thing to do in this matter.
Let the Democracy of Gordon county
see to it, that this man, who has been
instrumental in depriving them of ihe
representative of their choice, he ter
ribly rebuked at the polls.
Penalty for Opening Letters
Addresred to Another. —Many peo
ple seeing letters advertised are in the
habit of thinking there must be a mis

letters belonging to other parties. There
ore also letters that occasionally, through
haste or mistake, get into the wrong
boxes and are opened by parties to
whom they do not belong. It w ould be
as well to let our readers know that the
penalty for any person opening a letter
not addressed to himself varies from a
fine not exceeding SSOO to imprison
ment for ten years (Sec. 306, laws 1866.)
One half the pecuniary penalty shall be
for the use of the iuformer (Sec. 318,
laws 1866.) The complaint should be
made before a United States Judge or
Commissioner, if possible; if not pos
sible, then before a justice of the peace
(Sec. 485, Reg. 1866.) And when a
criminal is apprehended the attorney for
the United States for the district in
which the offense was committed shall
he notified (See. 460, Reg.)

Democrats, to the Front!
The Democracy have worked prior to
this stage of the campaign, with much
success j hut they have had child’s-play
to what they will he required to do be
tween this and the day of the election.
The wolf has leaped from his covert,
thereby disclosing himself to his ene
mies. In other words, the Radicals
have put their ticket in the field, to he
“gobbled up” by truth, liberty, justice,
and Democracy. The Democracy know
now where to strike. They know how
much power it will take to crush the en
emy—to annihilate them.
The enemy have secured several
strong positions. They have possession
of that very strong fortress, “Independ
ent Democratic Candidates.” Upon
this work there are several guns mount
ed, and they are trying to mount others,
notwithstanding the enfilading fire of our
artillery. They are fortifying this work
so as, they think, to become invulnera
ble. They are daily making sorties, in
the hope of capturing wavering Demo
crats, with whom they propose to sup
port the artillery of this fort. Upon
this position we should use our heaviest
Redoubt “Weak-Knee is in possession
of the Radicals, who propose to man it
with weak-kneed Democrats, by offering
a bounty in the shape of the scraps that
may, perchance, fall from their tables.
We think, however, that a few of our
sharp-shooters can readily silence the
guns mounted thereon, as they are of ex
ceedingly small call'bre.
The main fortress upon which they
depend for triumph is weak-kneed Dem
ocracy and Fort Africa. This a very
extensive fortification. Many guns are
mounted upon its walls, and a long line
of breast-works surround it. These
works held by slabs off from the
Democratic party, and by the “colored
troops,” who have been misled into ser
vice by those who profess to command,
who were deserters and are carpet-bag
gers ; who fill high positions by appoint
ment, (never held any by the suffrage
of the people.) These fellows also act
as cavalry, scouts, “quartermasters,” and
“commissaries for the garrison. They
are very cunning, and are all the time
devising plans whereby their position
may be] strengthened. Their disposi
tions, too, are made with considerable
skill and forethought.
The forces above enumerated are com
manded by very shrewd generals, who
are ever ready to assail any weak point
in our lines ; there ore it will be well
for our leaders to keep their eyes open.
Our fort, “Honesty,” is firing away
like blazes at the Radical battery Fraud
with good effect. Fort Constitution en
filades the enemy's entire liae. But we
will not name over all our forces, as they
are well known to all good people.
Gen. P. M. B. Young, our Caumian
der-in-chief, is controlingaffairs admira
bly, and his two efficient brigadier gen
erals, Trammell and Fain, are just the
men to hack him.
With work, patriotism, truth, honesty,
prudence and forbearance, we will cap
ture the whole Radical army by the
20th of this month.
So, Democrats, to the front!
Letter from Arkansas.
James’ Fork, Ark., )
November, 1870. j
Editor Calhoun Times:
Dear Sir: —As Mr. Sledge has writ
ten you a letter for publication, I w ill
also, to correct his mistakes, or, rather,
He reminds me of a boy who has left
home for the first time—nothing ap
pears right, or sound* right, but home.
“As to the Jews old Canaan stood,” so
does old Georgia to Mr. Sledge. Every
person looks cross-eyed hut old acquain
Mr. Sledge dwelt considerably upon
the condition of this country. I know
something of his travels in Arkansas
and the Indian Territory. He travelled
fourteen miles South of Fort Smith;
from thence two and a half miles inside
the Choctaw line, and made but a short
stay, although he appears to be well
posted. As to the production of the
country, lie gives a very low estimate.
As he did not stay through ihe gather
ing season, I do not think him a compe
Like Mr. Sledge, I am best acquaint
ed South of Fort Smith. Our land is a
loose loam, intermixed with sand—adapt
ed to the growing of corn, cotton, wheat,
oats, potatoes, turnips, melons, tobacco
—and, in fact, everything a farmer
wants to raise. Wc average from thirty
to fifty bushels of corn per acre ; wheat,
ten to fifteen, cotton 1000 to 1500 lbs.
(seed cotton) per acre; oats as fine as
heart could wish.
The country, like most others, is com
posed of hills and valleys. The valleys
generally, perhaps, are not so extensive
as some in Gordon county, (Georgia.)—
The hills are covered with post oak,
hickory and black-jack; the valleys are
heavily timbered, interspered with im
mense coal banks. As to those mounds
of which Mr. Sledge speaks, and how
they were made, is a matter of note and
curiosity. He and the settlers of some
very ancient date may he correct as to
their formation, but the old citizens at
the present time, think they are just as
God made them, before he made the
buffalo. The range is fine for cattle and
ponies, and hogs live well through the
winter. Hogs at one year old keep in
good order through the summer season,
and get fat on the mast in the fall. The
sweet mast was killed last spring; but
the hogs are getting fat on hitter mast
As to the game, Mr. Sledge did not
have luck to find it. I have stood in my
door and counted as many as twenty-five
and thirty"’ turkeys in one flock, and
about as many doqj| from the same place.
Fox, w T ild-eats, cattamounts, and wolves
plenty—occasionally a panther. Bears
are scarce away from the mountains.
Mr. Sledge seems to be well informed
as to the political condition of Sebas
tian county. It is true, the offices are
filled by Radicals. The reason is the
Democratic party have never had a man
in the field until the present canvass,
asking the people for their suffrage. The
Bth of November they will rise, shake
off the dust and sing the song of tri
umph. We will show Mr. Sledge that
we have plenty of good old Democrats
in Sebastian county.
As to half the citizens of this county
going with the Federate, it is a mistake.
In Mr. Sledge’s immediate neighbor
hood the majority went Federal. If he
had traveled over this county he would
have found a large majority of the Dem
ocratic persuasion, who went Southern.
The Indians were troublesome along the
line during the war—principally Choc
taws. The Peons were never South of
Fort Smith. They held the Cherokee
Nation. I have conversed with both
parties and they inform me the war was
carried on in guerrilla style. The citi
zens had to go North or South, or to
Ft. Smith. Their homes were generally
burned by one party or the other.
As to the strife not being at an end
yet in this country, Mr. Sledge is the
first man I have heard mention such a
thing in four years. The people are as
quiet I suppose, as in any part of the
United States. We have preaching ev
ery Sabbath, near enough to go and re
turn home for dinner. We have good
schools (free) three months in the year,
and can and do, in some parts, have sub
scription schools the remainder of the
Mr. Sledge puts us under a very heavy
tax—s 4.72 per hundred. I have never
paid any such tax, neither have I ever
heard of any other man paying such.
Running water is scarce, but water
can be obtained anywhere at the depth
of from sixteen to thirty feet.
As to the insects that alarm Mr.
Sledge so much : they are not very dan
gerous. The sting of a scorpion is about
the same as that of a wasp. His other
dangerous reptiles are about the same.
Mr. Sledge never saw a mountain
boomer. I will get the boys to catch
one next summer, and send him, by way
of reminder where he has been.
Mr. Sledge states land as high here
as in Georgia. Ido not know what land
is worth there. I will give you the
prices here: It is selling at from $1.25
to $lO per acre, according to improve
ments and locality.
I will close by giving Mr. Sledge a
hit of advice. As he takes the liberty
of advising the people of old Gordon, he
should have thought well before he left
as good a country as this to hunt a home
in old Gordon.
More anon. Sam Slick.
Washington, December 5.
The following Message was transmit
ted to Congress to-day:
To the Senate and Home of Represen
A year of peace and general prosper
ity to this nation has passed since the
last assembling of Congress. We have,
through a kind Providence, been blessed
with abundant crops, and have been
spared from complications and war with
foreign nations. In our midst compara
tive harmony has been restored. It is
to be regretted, however, that a free
exercise of the elective franchise has. by
violence and intimidation, been denied
to citizens, in exceptional cases, in sev
eral of the States lately in rebellion, and
the verdict of the people has thereby
been reversed. The States of Virginia,
Mississippi and Texas have been restor
ed to representation in our national
councils. Georgia, the only State now
without representation, may confidently
he expected to take her place there also
at the beginning of our new year; and
then, let us hope, will be completed the
work of reconstruction, with an acquies
cence on the part of the whole people
in the national obligation to pay the
public debt created as ihe price of our
Union, the pensions to our disabled sol
diers and sailors, and their widows and
orphans; and in the changes to the
Constitution which have been made ne
cessary by a great rebellion, there is no
reason why we should not advance in
material prosperity and happiness as no
other nation ever did after so protracted
and devastating a war.
The estimates for the expenses of the
government, for the next, fiscal year, are
$18,244.34(5, one cent less than for the
current one, but exceed the appropria
tions for the present year for the same
items $8,972,127,56. In his estimate,
however, is included $22,338,279,37,
for public works heretofore begun un
der Congressional provision, and of
which only so much is asked as Con
gress may choose to give. The appro
priation for the same works, for the
present fiscal year was $11,984,518,08.
The average value of gold, as compared
with national currency for the whole of
the year 1869 was about 134, and for
the eleven months of 1870. the same
relative value has been about 115. The
approach to a specie basis, is very grati
fying, but the fact cannot be denied
that the instability of the Value of the
currency, is prejudicial to our prosper
ity. and tends to keep up prices to the
detriment of trade. The evils of a de
preciated and fluctuating currency are
so great that now, when the premium
on gold has fallen so much, it would
seem that the time has arrived when,
by wise and prudent legislation, Con
gress should look to a policy which
would place our currency at par with
gold at no distant day.
The tax collected from the people has
been reduced more thau $80,000,900.
By steadiness in our present course,
there is no reason why in a few short
years the national tax gatherer may not
disappear from the door of the citizen
almost entirely. With the revenue
stamp, dispensed by the postmaster in
every community; a tax upon liquors of
all sorts, and tobacco in all its forms;
and by a wise adjustment of the tariff,
which will put a duty upon those ar
ticles which we could dispense with,
known as luxuries, and on those which
we use more thau we produce, revenae
enough may he raised, after a few yea •s
of peace and consequent reduction of
indebtedness, to fulfill all our obliga
tions. A further reduction of expenses,
in addition to a reduction of the interest
account, may he relied on to make this
practicable revenue reform. If it moans
this, it has my hearty support. If it
implies a collection of all the revenue
for the support of government, for the
payment of principal and interest of the
public debt, pensions. &c., by directly
taxing the people, then I am against
revenue reform, and confidently believe
the people are with me. If it means
failure to provide the necessary means
to defray all the expenses of government,
and thereby repudiation of the public
debt and pensions, then I am sJU more
opposed to such kind of revenue reform

The report of the Secretary of War
shows a very satisfactory reduction hi
the expenses of the army so tie last

led to h : s accompanying report. The
expenses o : ‘ the navy so: ihe whole of
the last year—that is fom December
Ist 1869, the date of the tesi lepo i—
less then $19,000,000, or about 8f 000,-
000 less than they were the previous
year. The expenses sbice die com
mencement of this fiscal year —tin tis
since July Ist: —show for die five months
a decrease of over £2 400.000 f am those
of the correspond mg months of last
year. estimates for the current
year were $28,205 071,37. Those for
ne\u yea** are $20,683,317, with $055 -
100 additional for necessary permanent
imp ovements. These es iniates are
made closely for the mere maintenance
of naval establishment as 'L now is with
out much in the natu v e of permanent
improvement. The appropriations for
the last and current years we**e evident
ly intended by Confess and a*e suffi
cient u) l:eep the navy on ‘is footing by
the pepairiog and reading of our old
ships. This policy must of course,
g adually, hut surely destroy the naw
aud it is in itself, fa'* from economical
as each yearthat it is pursued, the ne
cessity for mere repairs in ships and
navy yards becomes more imperative
and more costly, and out current ex
penses are annually increased for ibe
mere repa'r of ships, many of which
must soon become unsafe and useless.
The accompanying report of the Post
master General shows a most satisfacto
ry working of that Department. With
the adoption of the recommendations
contained therein, particularly those re
lating to a reform in the franking priv
lege, and the adoption of the “ corres
pondence cards,” a self-sustaining postal
system may speedily be looked fur, and
at no distant day, a farther reduction of
the rate of postage may be attained. I
reccommend authorization by Congress
to the Postmaster General and Attorney
General to issue all commissions to offi
cials to be appointed through their res
pective departments. At present, these
commisaioners where appointments are
Presidential, are issued by the State De
partment. The law in all the depart
ments of the government, except those
of the Post Office and of Justice, au
thorizes each to issue its own commis
sions. Always favoring practical re
forms, I respectfully call your attention
to one of long standing, which I would
like to see remedied by this Congress.
It is a reform in the civil service of this
country. I would have it go beyond the
mere fixing of the tenure of office of
clerks aud employees who do not require
“the advice and consent of the Senate”
to make their appointments cemplete.—
L would have it govern not the tenure,
but the manner of making all appoint
ments. There is no duty which so
much embarrasses the Executive and
heads of departments as that of appoint
ments ; nor is there any such arduous
and thankless labor imposed on Sena
tors and Representatives as that of find
ing places for constituents. The pres
ent system docs not secure the best men.
and often not even fit men for public
places. The elevation and purification
of the civil service of the government
will be hailed with approval by the
whole people of the United S totes.
During the year ending September
30, 1370, there were filed in the Pat
ent Office 19411 applications for pat

thousand six hundred and twenty-two
patents, revisions and designs,

special value aud interest, and will be

session. The remaining volumes will
be completed with all the dispatch con
sistent with perfect accuracy in nrrauT
ing and classifying the returns. We
shall thus, at no distant day be furnished
with an authentic record of our condi
tion and resources. It will, I doubt not,
attest the growing prosperity of the
country, although during the decade
which has just closed, it was so severely
tried by the great war waged to man
tain its integrity and (o secure and per
petuate our free institutions.
During the last fiscal year the gum
paid to pensioners, including the cost of
disbursement, $277,808 11 and 1,758
bounty land warrants were issued at its
close. 197,080 names were on the pen
sion rolls. The labors of the pension
office have been directed to the severe
scrutiny of the evidence submitted in
favor of the new claims and to the dis
covery of fictitious claims which have
allowed the appropriation ldr special
agents for the investigation of frauds has
been judiciously used, and the results
obtained have been of unquestionable
benefit to the service. The subjects of
education and agriculture arc of great
interest of our republican institutions,
happiness and grandeur as a nation.—
In the interest of one, a bureau has been
established in the Interior Department,
the Bureau of Education and in the in
tersst of the other, a separate depart
ment —that of agriculture. I believe
great gene' al good is to flow from the
operations of both these bureaux, if
1 cannot commend to your careful
consideration too highly the reports of
the Commissioners of Education, arid of
agriculture, nor urge too strongly, such
liberal legislation as to secure their effi
ciency. In conclusion, I would snm up
the policy of the administration to be a
thorough enforcement of every law, a
faithful collection of every fax provid
ed for, economy in the disbursement of
the same, a prompt payment of every
debt of the nation, a reduction of taxes
as rapidly as the requirements of the
country will admit —reduction of taxa
tion and tariff to be so arranged as to
afford the greatest relief to iho greatest
number; honest and fair dealing with
all other people—to the end, that war,
with all its blighting consequences be
avoided, but without surrendering any
right or obligation due to us : a reform
in the treatment of Indians, and in the
whole civil service of the country; and
finally, in securing a pure, untrammel
led ballot, where every man entitled to
cast a vote may do so, just once at each
election, with out fear of molestation or
proscription on account of his political
faith, nativity or color.
