WHY SHE CAME To LITTLE RoCK. -Recently passers-by noticed a woman standing on the corner of Maine and Fourth streets. She wore an old sunbonnet and her dress indicated adversity.

WHY IS IT SO. Some find work where some find rest. And so the weary world goes on; I sometimes wonder what is best; The answer comes when life is gone. Some eyes sleep whien soime eyes wake, And so the dreary night hours go; Some hearts beat some hearts break. I often wonder why 'tis so. Some hands fold where other hands Are lifted bravely in the strife; And so thro' ages and thro' lands Move on the two extremes of life. Some feet halt yhile some feet tread, In tiveless march, a throny way; Some struggle on where some have fler Some seek, where others shun th< fray. Some sleep on while others keep The vigils of true and brave; They will not rest till roses creep Around their names above the grave -Father Rvan. She Took Him.

[For the Messenger. The Lien Law. MR. EDITOR: I notice that' the lien law is being pretty severely criticised by some writers in the State. This is a question worthy of the.ablest quill and ought to be dissected;. I would like to give some points on it. 1st. We dare not take from a man his constitutional right of giving a mortgage, which instru ment is about as long as the dec laration of Independence. An at torney will charge about $5.00 for drawing it up; $1.50 to record, making $6,50. Mr. A., a renter, goes to C. for 10 bushels of corn; he adds on his $6.50 paper to the cost; to D., ror 50ibs of bacon he repeats the dose, and to the bal ance of the alphabet for his mo lasses, flour, guano, etc., with his $6.50 papers still attached, with the danger of a long tedious and expensive process of fighting fore closures through the courts. Will the said Leinor be able to buy his rations any cheaper as a hireling? which we 'make the law say he shall be, when we take away his right of giv...

They were well dressed and well behaved, but when the conductor came afer tick ets two of them had no tickets and no money. He stopped the train in the woods and put them off. I was sorry for the rascals, for they did want to go so bad. I asked some of the crowd why they dident lend them some money, and they showed their pearly teeth and said: "We knows dem niggers; dey neb ber pay back.
