Old wife put into new bottles sometimes 'musts the bottles. Old wine put into young men sometimes leads to a “bust.” During the absence of the postmaster in Washington, the office is in charge of Mr. Geo. II. Farrington, the efficient chief clerk. Bears have been killed in seventy towns and plantations in Maine the past year. The bounties will amount to about fifteen hundred dollars. The Legislative Committee on State Prison left this city yesterday morning, by stage, for Thomaston, to make the annual examination of the Prison. A girl has sued her father for slander. It is supposed that she is not blessed with the or dinary weapon of defence to enable her to re taliate in kind. Watson Emerson of this city, was before the municipal court yesterday for drunken ness. Owned up to the charge, paid nominal fine and discharged. Thayer is getting out some splendid ice and storing it tor sale’next summer. We notice that several of our saloon keepers are putting ice into their cellars for their own use. Wendell Phillips lectured in Skowhegan on Wednesday evening, to an audience of 700. The lecture was well received, although the subject did not call out any of the “fire" of the distinguished orator. Mr. II. W. Littlefield, Principal of the Grammar school in this city, who recently re tired from the.school on account of ill health, will not be able to resume his duties during the present term. The Directors are in quest ot a competent man to take his place. llev. Mr. Penney, pastor of the Free Bap tist church in this city, made the gratifying announcement to his people on the last Sabbath, that he had declined the recent calls received and intended to remain with the peo ple of his first charge. A rascal dropped an envelope in the post office in this city yesterday, addressed to a person in this city containing a card of matches. On being stamped the matches ig nited setting fire to the envelope. Perhaps the perpetrator of this bit of foolish mischief don't know that he has laid hiinscli liable to a severe penalty, as the laws are decided and clear on these matters. On Wednesday, while one of the teams of the Knickerbocker Ice Company was hauling ice on the river from liallowell to Gardiner, the ice gave way just below Brown’s Island, and it was only after the greatest exertion that the valuable team was saved. The business of hauling ice to Gardiner has been aban doned for the present until the ice shall strengthen. The ice which is being secured at Hallowell will be stored on Steam Mill point. We have received from a “poick" of the first water, a production “written on the con stitution and course pursued by wun man to ards annuthcr at the present time." The writer says that like wolves with wild boars, men are never at “pease,” but are constantly engaged in “tearing out each other's eyes out.” Men “rob their neighbor’s pockets,” “And all take the Job for the pay. And so the world wags on from uay to day.” Those who believe in the millennium will be pained to learn that thus “Twill ever be for all dimming time.” The sin of the day is not confined altogeth er to the church edifices— “For tin not the meeting houses that is given over to tin, But all those that congregate wUhin.” In this deplorable state of things is there no remedy ? It appears not. For the poet lifts up his eyes and exclaims: "For all have a chance of seeing That tis but seldom (rarely seldom) that one meets with a human being ; For all is void of truth, reason and common cents. And ever will be till man and this world goes hense.” After closing his refrain, and we refrain from copying at greater length, the “poick" is supposed to lay down his pen, and put in an application for a room at the Insane Hos pital. There arc bright spots even in the life of a minister—sunnysides in the rough journey that are really pleasant and inspiring. It must indeed be a pleasant reflection to a pas tor to know that his labors arc appreciated by his flock, that they enter with him in sympa thy into his great work, and take a deep inter est not only in his spiritual but in his tem poral welfare. Such attention to his wants serves to encourage him in his labors, and will help both the giver and receiver. Last even ing, while Kev. Dr. Kicker, pastor of the First Baptist church in this city, and the members of his family were taking tea at the house of a friend, the sanctity of their home was invaded by a body of men and women moving silently in the stillness of the evening and conveying certain mysterious looking packages. After taking possession of every part of the house, the tables were speedily loaded with tempting food, hot coffee supplied and arrangements made fur a good time in the lmusc of the minis ter. About eight o’clock the Doctor and his family wore summoned home by a messenger. On opening the door they were in a maze of bewilderment. They were obliged to ground arms at the outer door in obedience to the be hests of fair sentinels, and compelled to sub mit to an unconditional surrender. After being conducted to the parlor, one of the company in brief remarks, in behalf of the society, presented to the Doctor and his fam ily a marble top • centre table on which was arranged a magnificent silver tea service, full set, besides several other articles for use and ornament, the whole costing over one hun dred dollars. The Doctor responded to the presentation speech in a very handsome man ner, although his feelings came near getting the mastery. After congratulations, a pleas ant evening spent in conversation and social enjoyment, closing with a bountiful repast, 1 the company took leave of their pastor and his 1 family, with their bump of benevolence en larged and their affections and kindly feelings strengthened. The surprise was a most com plete one, and the complimentary testimonial well deserved and appreciated. There were over two hundred guests present during the evening, some outside of the Society, the warm friends of Dr. Ricker and his family. Emi Keunekec Agrlcaltural »l Horticultural So ciety.

A good and comfortable place is provided for horses and carriages. We find in the Portland Daily Advertiser a decision in a bankrupt case which may be of interest to our readers. K. K. Dresser had been adjuged a bankrupt on the petition of his creditors, and a warrant had been issued to the Marshal as Messenger, requiring him to take possession of all the estate of the bank rupt, and ordering tire bankrupt within ten days to deliver to the Messenger a schedule of his creditors, and an inventory of his es tate. Tne schedule and inventory were de livered to the Marshal, and from the inventory it appeared that the debtor was possessed of 8130.50. This sum bad been repeat* illy de manded by the Marshal, but the bankrupt had never paid over any part of it, at last excus ing himself by claiming he bad spent it in the support of his family. C. P. Mattocks was chosen assignee of the bankrupt and not hav ing received this amount, he petitioned the court for an order to show cause why be had not paid over the money, and that he should be adjudged guilty of contempt of the order of the court. This bankrupt was brought into court in Portland, before Judge Fox, and the court decreed that the bankrupt was guilty of contempt in not complying with the warrant of the court, and ordered that he should be committed to the jail in Portland, there to be detained until he should pay the amount stated on his inventory together with the cost or until the further order of oourt. The bank rupt afterwards paid the amount. This is the first cate on which the District Court has been called upon to enforce a compliance with its orders and decrees, although in many instances, bankrupts have failed to comply with the orders of the court within the time prescr.bed. We understand that hereafter, in all cases where the orders are not prompt ly complied with, they will be at once en forced by an arrest of the delinquent.
