There is no attempt to do any
busiues?. Women and children
living in the vicinity of tlio State
House have moved away. The
clergymen of the city have called
on the people to unite in services
to-dasy to God to avoid bloodshed
and see that right prevails.
Ail the armed men found in the
Metropolitan Hotel yesterday were
ordered out, and Coloqfl Rose
placed guards at the hotel. Nearly
enough members of the legislature
have .arrived to make a quorum in
both hoiues. Arrangements have
been made for the legislature to
meet in one of the town halls out
side of the limit of the State House.
Governor Baxter has received
several companies to-day to re-in-force
him, and now has consider
able force in the city.
Baxterites caught a negro up in
the city this afternoon and clubbed
him over the head, 'searched him
for arms and then left him. Both
siJes are very vigilant. ' The United
States troops are ready for any
emergency by having stationed a
look-out on the top of the City Hall.
The Baxterites have erected barri

Colonel Rose, commanding the
United States troops, has directed
the State House party to turn over
the steamer Hattie, to her owners.
This order was to be executed by 7
o'clock this morning. Col. Brooker,
with asquad of State Houmj troops,
boarded the steamer, and scuttled
her. She sank to the hurricane
deck. Everything of value was
taken off before she sank. Gen
eral King White arrived from
Pine Bluffs to-day, with 200 cav
alry, to reinforce Baxter. He has an
equal number of infantry, who are
expected here to-night.
JJaxter was rcluforced to-day by a
company from Humstcad, and an
other from Lone Oak county. The
Baxterites have planted a seventj--four
pounder on the river bank in
the rear of Elm. .street, between
Markhamand Scott streets, com
manding good view of the State
House. Everything has been quiet
to-day, but the lines are sticktly
drawn up, and very few persons are
allowed to pass in or out of them.
The following document has been
sent to the president:
We, the undersigned, members of
the legislature of this state, have
come here to meet, under call of
Gov. Baxter, to-morrow, and we
wish to meet and settle the troubles
now existing here, as the country
requires it, and wo respectfully ask
the protection of the genoral gov
ernment while we meet and delib
erate. We hold that this matter
should not be postponed, and all
that we can do to have a fair and
honorable adjustment shall be done,
and unless w e are protected there
may be blood sljed here in a very
short time, and the consequences
no one can tell.
We are well satisfied there will
be a quorum of the legislature pres

Governor Baxter, and we are satis
fied that the quorum would bo here

Little Rock, May 9.
Gen. Churchill has given orders
to those living on streets near the
State House to movp out, as he was
going to bombard it, and would
probably damage to adjacent houses.
Occupants are moving out.
It is rumored that Gen. Churchill
brought a cannon ball, fired this
morning from across the. river, to
Col. Rose and demanded that he
should take the gun. The general
impression, however, was that only
blank cartridges has been fired.
The steamer Hattie is barricaded

Col. Brooker's command, after
the fight, formed and marched back
to Carlam, got on the train and re
turned to the city. They marched
across the railroad bridge and down
Markham street to their quatters.
There was much excitement in
town on their arrival.
The steamer Hattie, with the
dead, wounded and prisoners on
lward, was sighted about 3 o'clock
in the afternoon. She steamed up
to the back of the State House and
moored there. The boat is perfectly
riddled with shot. Houston, the
pilot, when going up was protected
in tho pilot houso by a barricade,
but as the current took the boat
over he became exposed and re
ceived a wound, from the effects of
which he died in an hour.
After the arrival of the boat Doc
tors Dale and Deball went on board
and attended to the wounded. Bax
ter's forces, commanded by Colonel
Letafield, were armed with muzzle
loaders. Brook's men were armed
with breech-loaders. Col. Letafield
was in command of 150 colored
men. ThejT fought well and pre
vented the boat from going up the
river and attacking Fowler's left.
Most of Baxter's party were young
Southerners of good families.
The utmost excitement prevails
in town. A figlit occurred just five
miles above Natural Steps. An at
tack on the State house js expected
to-night. Baxter has extended his
jdeket line. Jackson Blackman,
one of Brooks' militia, died at the
depot from the effects of a wound.
Edward Houston, whose clothes
were riddled with shot, says he
told his brother who had command
of the boat, that he had bettor turn

Baxters men who escaped took
their arms with them. They are
credited for bravo fighting. The
sides and deck of the boat
were covered with blood;
some of the prisoners admit
that they went out to fight, and said
that thoy fired first, and found
no fault with Brook's men. The
Baxterites aro now at work making
scaling ladders, and thero will be
troublesome times here before
The casualties on Baxter's side

It is stated that the lease of the
Atlantic and Great Western Bail
way to the Erie company was com
pleted yesterday. The Atlantic and
Great Western is to be taken' just as
it stands, with rolling stock and'all
appurtenances, and be run t and
managed by the Erie management.
The rent for the rolling stocky etc.,
is thirty per cent upon gross re
ceipts, leaving seventy per cent for
running expenses. The lease'is for
one hundred years. Competing
lines of railway from Chicago to the
East have advanced the rates of
freight transportation 5 cents per
hundred pounds. The advance has
been forced by the Erie and New
York Central to drive freight to
the lake steamers owned by these
roads. The advance Is in the inter
est of these roads and against the
interest of the Pennsylvania road,
which is an all train route.
The House Committee on the Pa
cific Railroad have unanimously
agreed to report and recommend
the passage of bill directing the Sec
retary of the Treasury to demand of
each of the Pacific Railroad Compa
nies the immediate payment of the
5 percentjannum of their respective
net receipts as required by law, anil
which is to be paid over to the Gov
ernment and applied to tho liquida
tion of interest on their bonds. The
bill will also contain a provision di
recting the Attorney General to
commence proceedings to enforce tho
payment of this 5 per cent.incase
the demand of the Secretary of the
Treasury is not complied with.
The legislation of last Congress
merely authorized the attorney gen
eral to commence suchs proceed
ings. This bill proposes to enact
positive requirement to effeot the
same object. Representlve Hough
ton is a member of the Pacific rail
road committee, and has made a
special study of this jailroad ques
tion. It is his opinion that under
the contract the .interest on the
bonds is not due, but that the five
per cent, is due, and should be paid
over to the government.
The committee on war claims has
agreed to give two thousand dollars
to Mrs. Thayer, of New York, one
of the most noted nurses during the
late war. She attended the sick
and wounded of the battles of sec

Antietam, etc. Among those she
attended after the bUttlp ot Antie
tam was Gen. Hooker. She re
mained in Washington until the
close of the war, ministering to the
wants of the soldiers and, after as
sisting them with her own means,
she is now advanced in age and in

The Government proposition for
the construction of the Canadian
Pacific railroad, is as follows : It is
to be in four sections. First, from
Georgian Bay to tho wastern end of
Lake Superior; socond, to Red
River; third, to a point between
Fort Edmunton and the foot of the
Rocky Mountains; fourth, to a point
on the British Columbia coast. One
of the branches to be built is to
run from Fort Garry to Pembina.
The gauge of the road is to be our
feet, eight and onehalf inches.
Every contractor is to prove thathc
is worth' one thousand dollars for
every mile of his contract, and de
posit 25 per cent, in money. Land
for the road is to be laid out in al
ternate blocks of twenty miles, in
all 20,000 acres per mile, with from
three to six miles frqntage on the
road. Tho Government may also
subsidize branch lines at $10,000
