A man named Walbridge fell dead in Ban
gor last Sunday night, from actual bursting
of the heart. A post mortem examination by
]>r. heavy disclosed a rent in the heart two
inches long, caused by engorgement of blood.
It is reported that one of our citizens, a bus
iness man, didn't know anything about the
freshet until Monday morning. He must have
observed the Sabbath more rigidly than piously,
for undoubtedly it would have been a religious
service to assist liis neighbors in saving their
property.

One of the editors of the Portland Press hat
seen a station stake which was numbered in

was found by Mr. L. II. Stone, civil engineer,
in an upright position and well preserved, on
Jan. 19th, 1870. It was made of white pine.
The Bath Timet says quite an extensive ice

Tlie Whig says the incoming tide at Ban
gor, Monday afternoon, was watched with
great anxiety, especially by persons interested
in the European and North American Hail
way, as the bridge across the mouth ot' Ken
duskeag stream was in imminent danger. The
ice raised the bridge several inches, but for
tunately the tide turned before it was dam
aged materially. It was a very high tide, and
a very little more water would have carried
the bridge down stream. The same paper
says the freshet at Bangor did not reach the
high point of last October. The Bangor folks
were in suspense till Monday night when the
tide went out leaving them to breathe easier.
Many moved their goods into upper stories,
but no materia) damage was done.
The Masquerade Ball.
The grand fashionable affair of the season,
for which the most elaborate and extensive
arrangements had been made, the anneal bal
masque, took place last evening at Granite
Hall. The active committee of arrangements
had very tastily, although not very extensive
ly, decorated the hall, in honor of the birth
day of the Father of his country. This r> cog
nition of the day and the man was exceedingly
fitting and in good taste. The stars md
stripes twined gracefully, symbolizing the
glorious work for which Washington was
raised up to perform.
We here give the full list of the committee
of arrangements:

The managers did themselves great credit, i
Under their careful and easy administration, '
everything passed of!'with few mistakes.
It was very difficult yesterday to obtain
tickets to eligible positions in the hall, or in
fact to nny position, as the popularity and
brilliancy of other balls of this character, had
created a great demand for tickets. This was
particularly agreeable, ns it insured financial
success. Many who came to attend the ball
as spectators were obliged to assume cos
tumes and appear upon the floor, because they
could not obtain the positions they desired in
the audience.
At the opening of the doors. seven o'clock,
a goodly number of ticket-holders made their
appearance, and from this time until eight
o'clock, the hour appointed for the grand
concert, there was a steady stream of people
pouring into the hall. The attentive ushers
performed their duty with grace and correct
ness. The disagreeable sensation that runs
from a man’s toes to his head at finding him
self in the wrong sent, und seven or eight
persons claiming it, hud no just cause of ex
pansion last evening. The main floor of the
hall was reserved tor those who were to ap
pear in costume; the entire gallery and the
floor under the north gallery for those who
came to see.
Under the hall were apartments that were
brought into requisition for dressing rooms
for the masqueraders. A substantial supper,
gotten up by W. M. Thayer and J. G. Adams,
was served in a room on the same floor with
the dressing rooms. .
The grand concert by Gilmore's Band of I
Boston, commenced promptly at eight o’- j
clock. The rich music of the Band was in
deed a feast, both to those who could drink in :
the sweet sounds with a heart attuned to the ;
artistic, and those to whom classical music
was a tangle of incomprehensible mysteries,
but who could enjoy, even without the power
of telling tlie reason, the “melody of sweet
sounds." This, the preliminary and intro
ductory portion of the evening’s entertain
ment, contributed to the great delight of all,
as indeed did the exquisite performances of
tlie band during the entire evening.
But as the hour of nine came the door of
tlie hall opened to admit tlie masqueraders,
who filed in pairs front the dressing rooms.
As they passed around and encircled the hall,
the gay throng presented a spectacle seen only
once a year in this commuaity. The entire
scene was novel and interesting in the ex
treme. In the flashing splendors of the gas
lights, the beholder was led to believe the
nymphs before him were etherial inhabitants of
fairy land. All nations and peoples were repre
sented in the gay throng; strange companion
ships were formed; extremes met last even
ing if they never met before. The represen
tative of tlie Emerald isle appeared to he en
joying a social chat with a fair Spanish lass ;
flower girls of striking beauty of face and
form waltzed with club footed detnonds; an
cient trappings of noblemen and warriors, who
have long since slept in silence, were resur
rcclioniztd and sported with tlie fair daugh
ters of fashion; substantial and sensible
looking Monarclis glided in the mazy dance
with Elora Flimsies and butterflies of fashion,
(not real butterflies of course, hut “in play”) ;
“Figlu” and “Morning” joined hands most
cordially.
The comic element was conspicuous, rang
ing from the jolly Irishman to the irresistible
Yankee and representations of the ranktank
erous pedler.
The costume! were furnished l.y the
well known Mrs. Vincent of the Boston
Museum, and were rich and varied. We
never saw better taste displayed in the selec
tion of costumes. They were exceedingly ap
propriate and seemed designed for the different
individuals who filled them. There were
historical costumes almost without number,
pisturesque national dresses, the rich habit*
worn in the reigns of llenri II. and Francis
I., and the court dresses of Louis XVI and
XV. Many of the ladies appeared in full
hall dress, elegantly attired. Our list of char
acter* will give an idea of the variety and
richness of costumes.
The ladies were dressed with great taste
and elegance. We shall not attempt to par
ticularise in this respect. If the fair reader
of this morning's paper lays aside the sheet
with a feeling of regret that her toilet which
cost so much time in arranging was not spec
ially mentioned, we must beg very humbly
her pardon, for an impartial notice of the va
riou« drosses would require space which we
are forced to devote to other purposes.
Bangor, Portland, Lewiston, Watcrville,
Skowhegan, Gardiner, Ilallowell, and other
sections, were represented on the floor.
Precisely at eleven o’clock, the signal was
given for unmasking, and at this point the
excitement of the occasion was at its height,
and the revelation made suprised and pleased
those who participated in and also those who
w'-o witnesses to the brilliant scene. Dane- 1
ing was then resumed and kept up until mid
night, when supper was served. At two
o'clock, at which time our report closes, the
unmasked revelers are still wheeling in the
giddy mazes with the prospect of keeping up
the enjoyment for at least an hour longer.
The ball was a perfect success, and will com- 1
pare favorably with the brilliant affair of last j
winter.
We append a list of the different characters, i
Undoubtedly we have omitted some names, '
but are sure that we labored diligently to
obtain a full list:

with the Anglo American, Atlantic & New
j Y ork an,i New Eundlund & London Te legraph,
looking to economy of expense of business,
was unanimously approved, and the directors
