Sunday's dispatches say that mat

condition than they have been for
some time. The Chronicle, a Green

Radical faction, and a company of
troops, the first that has over enltered

general of the Fusl,onists, Is drilling
forces nightly in Augusta, and asks thec
Republicans to "stop on me coat-tail

they are going to clean out the UJnioir

people are somewhat excited at" the

Republicans stated the case uniirly.
The Democratic city of Beddetord has
invited the Fusion Leidslature to hold
its sittings there, and the Beddeford
treasurer has sent his taxes to the
Fusion State Treasurer who was State
treasirer last year, iid now refuses

Smith has also the seal of State, and
intends to hold it.
At. the preselt writing the Republi

Fusionists may flave the grit., how

Thomas A. Edison and his workshops,
at Menlo Park, N. J., and the inen

tentiotn to the experiences of an ntilire
ly disinterested gentlemtan who visited
the Edison laboratory, at. Men1tlo Park,

assistants would be seen engagel in
