    Arkansas. - The Van Buren (Arkansas) Press is quite indignant at the seizure of the United States arsenal at Little Rock, and says:

    “The act will meet, as it merits, the unqualified condemnation of every decent man in the State, whether Secessionist or Unionist. Contrasting strangely with the feeling or the conduct of that lawless band in the lower part of this State, is the sentiment of our people here in reference to the occupants of the garrison within five miles of this place. We look upon them as our defenders and friends, and the people of Crawford and Sebastian counties will turn out en masse, to resist any attempt on the part of any people to dislodge them from their appropriate quarters, so long as Arkansas remains in the Union.”
