good reader, you were now by say
side, looking down from the gallery of the
House, upon the assembled representatives of tho
people, and I were to ask yon to point me out
the handsomest man of the body, 1 dare say you
would point me to the gentleman who represents
the firat Congressional district of Maine If you
are a woman I know tou would. Mr. Goodwin
is "fair and fat." though not yet mito "forty"
being oae of tho youngoat men of the House ;
reioicms in inst rotundity enough to give com
plete development to his fine figure, and tell of

Goodwin wa3 elected to tba Sonata of Maine ; in
1855 was anpointed coramiasioner to ro7i8 the
special laws of that State ; and in 1860, by &
fiattorrag majority, was elected to Congress from
the first Congressional district, n district of large
political and commercial importanoe, containing
withm its bounds the manufacturing cities ot

Along both side3 of the river tho country is a
continued mineral section. Tho present stearaor
is unable to do tho trade of the river, and the
miners and merchants b:vo been and are still com

300 miles, at a cost of from lo to UO cents per iu,
