RlU'lUNTKi). The poem ptibllHhcl by
us Saturday, Is reprinted on the llrst
page, as our edition was exhausted, and
there are many who wish to possess it.
Wi: hope to see Academy Hall crowd
ed on Thursday evening next, at which
time the St. Albans Brigade Hand will
give a concert. There Is no better band
in the State, and wo feel conildent in
baying that those who attend will lie
happily surprised at the class of music
which they will hear. The outside per
formances of the Hand are good; but
their indoor music is much superior.
Go to the concert on Thursday evening.
Hon. A. O. Alois, United States Con
sul at Nice, France, is expected home
about the lfilh of .Juno. His family arc
in excellent health and will remain in
Nice for the present. When Judge Al
dis intends to return to Nice, if at all,
we are not informed.

Tin Whddixo. Mr. and Mrs. M.G
JOlliott celebrated the fifth anniversary
of their marriage with a tin wedding on
Saturday evening last. The Brigade

tion that they gave a suitable serenade
on the pleasant occasion. Mr. iLllioti is
the eilicient (Joneral Ticket Agent of
the Vt. Central, and Vt. and Canada
Good Wouk. We wore shown to
day, in the extensive and well filled
furniture rooms of Messrs. Livingston
Sons, a small stand, such as used to
be a common article of furniture in eve
ry house, made by Mr. Horace Living
ston fifty years ago the 3rd day of the
present month. This stand is in shape
like others of its age, but is otherwise
an elegant piece of workmanship, being
made of handsome maple, inlaid with
what is called zebra wood. The stand
was made by Mr. L. while he was an
apprentice, and shows for itself that it
was excellently made. 1 1 was bid oil" by
him a short time ago at an auction sale

ceeds to help pay the debts of the church,
and one half to aid in paying for an or

States, and is to be manufactured in
Father Smarius has been attending
mission meetings in various places,
with only four days Intermission, since
the 17th of August last. He is an easy
and earnest speaker, and receives tho
close attention of all who hear him.
We learn that Bishop Louis Do Gocs
briand has held services twice daily in
this place during the last week, preach
ing in French.

the Grand Jury have been called to
gether to remedy the defect. The trial
will probably take place the first of the
Raii.iioad Matthiih. The Mayor
and Hoard of Aldermen of Portland
have called a meeting of the citizens of
Portland, Maine, which is to be held on
Wednesday of this week, to vote upon
t lie question of the city's subscription
for stock in tiie Portland & Ogdensburgh
Railroad, at the rate uf'2 percent on
the valuation of the city not exceeding
the sum of $75(1,000. We do not doubt
that the necessary subscription will be
voted by the Portlanders. All they
want to know in that enlerprising city
is that any contemplated work will lie
beneficial to them, and when that ap
pears certain, they go ahead beautifully.
Hon. George W. Hendee and Waldo

IMPEACHMENT SPECULATIONS !
Admission of Southern States,
Political Movements in Favor of Chase
and Adams !
ANDY AND AMNESTY 1 1
Ni:w Yoiuc, May 2o.
A special despatch from AViislilngion
to the JTcrald nays that the impeach
ment managers hold n meeting Sunday
evening, and adopted the points of evi
dence obtained last week. Butler was
commisioned to put tho evidence in
shape. Mr. Wilson thinks thc'nmttcr
will be dropped on Tuesday. Butler is
satisfied that he lias an overwhelming
amount of evidence to impeach one or
two Senators, and make conviction sure.
Thud. Stevens Is fully convinced that
there have been all kinds'of frauds per
petrated to defeat conviction. He is pro
paring an article of impeachment, and
taking the subject of bribery for his text.
Tho "World's despatch says that lead
ing Radical Senators urge the disehargo
of the impeachment subject at once, in
order that Congress may attend to le
gitimate business. Wade denounces the
negro sullrage plank in the Republican
platform, adopted at Chicago. Mr. "Wil
liams stated that he and Stovcns will
urge the Managers to adopt three new
articles, nnd if they arc not adopted by
them will appeal to the House. Bout
well and Wilson regard impeachment
as dead. It is still believed that Ross
will vote for conviction on the second
and third articles.
Mr. Ponieroy's friends say that he will
ask the Senate to investigate tho charg
es against him.
Grant and Colfax both urge the speedy
admission of those States complying
with the reconstruction acts, and an ef
fort will be made to get the Arkansas
bill up to-day. It is probable that all
the States will be admitted before tho
llrst day of July.
.Tho Tribune's despatch says that it is
understood that tho report of tho im
peachment Managers which will bo
made to-day will present merely an ex
hibit of facts as they appear from testi
mony, and it is given out that this tes
timony is so strong that it will compel
the Senate to suspend action on the
trial until time is allbrded for an ex
haustive investigation. Extreme Utid
ical Senators arc in favor of protrac
ting the trial to make further investi
gations. Nkw Yohk, May 25.
A meeting of the friends of Charles
Francis Adams, desirous of having him
place don the Democratic ticket for Vice
President, by the National Democratic
Convention, was held on Saturday
night. The meeting, which wasj fairly
attended, was addressed by several gen
tlemen who were most enthusiastic in
their laudations of Mr. Adams.
A meeting of leading Conservative
politicians was held at tho 5th Avenue
Hotel on Saturday night, at which
measures were taken to advance tho in
terests of Chief Justice Chaso, in con
nection with tho Presidency.
Nkw Yohk, May 23.
A Pittsburgh despatch says a Nash
ville paper states that a proclamation of
universal amnesty is in course of prepa
ration at tho Whito House, and will be
issued before tho meeting of tho Nation
al Democratic Convention. '
