Sleighing is excellent. The snow of Mon- j
day did the business.
Cord word piled on the shore has "gone
where the woodbine twineth.”
The Supreme Judicial Court commences its j
March term in this city next Tuesday.
The freshet on Machias river was one of J
the heaviest for years; the river is free of ice.
The bill establishing State uniformity of text '■
books was defeated iu the Senate yesterday
by a vote of Id to 10.
Hon. J. S. Monroe, Judge of Probate for
Piscataquis Co., died at hi* residence in Ab
bot, Sunday, ifOth inst.
The report to the Governor and Council of
.the Commissioners on Scandinavian immigra
tion, is extensively sought after.
Yesterday was the “day after" with the mas- j
querader*. Some faces were not so bright
and blooming as they appeared “under thu
gaslight."
A man who is too mean to subscribe for his
local Daily certainly ought nut to take up the
time of the publishers by a.-king questions
about the news.
The Pine Street Free Baptist church, Lew
iston, have just received a very elegant
and valuable Communion Service, the gift of
Deacon II. K. Snow, of Haverhill, Mas*.
Wm. H. Turner was up for drunkenness i
yesterday; found guilty; paid nominal fine j
and costs and was discharged. Thus. O'Briens
for same offence, was found guilty, and for want
of funds was committed to jail for thirty days, j
Blessed, thrice blessed, is that man who
scattered sand upon the slippery sidewalk yes
terday morning. Verily the sands of his life
shall now run smoothly and gently and he shall
receive the benediction of the wayfaring man
though a fool.
Although Augusta is now the eastern termin
us of the Portland A Kennebec railroad, the
trains that are made up here are well filled,
to all appearance nearly up to the number of
passengers that passed through here when the
connection was made.
Tlie operations of the ice cutters at Hallo
well, Gardiner and below, is being prosecuted
with as much vigor as erer. The Hath limes !
•ays the largest amount of ice yet taken out
ia by B. 8- Wright of Boston, whose opera
tions are at Kiclimond. He has cut already
19,000 tons.
On Monday morning, 14th inst., the dwell
ing house, stable and out-buildings belonging
to L. Merrill of Caribou, were destroyed bi
fire. Thu loss is estimated at not less than
threo thousand dollars, upon which, we are
sorry to learn, there was no insurance. By
this uiiaforiuue Mr. Merrill, an industrious
and worthy citizen, is left penniless to begin
anew the battle of life.
A road has been made across the ice-jam at
Hallow ell, by the citizens of Chelsea, who
wished to go town. The road is emphatically
a higkxtty—being at least ten feet above or- :
dinary low water. The damage to the stock
of dry goods in the store of Messrs. E. J. .
Uersey A Co., by the great inundation at Hai
lowell, amounts to nearly 81000. The pro
prietors are now selling the damaged goods by
auction, and doubtless great bargains can be
■eeured by bidders.
Michael Leary of Vassalboro’, has been
charged with stealing a watch, on the 17th of
January last, from Isaac Jenkins, jeweller, of
Vaasalboro'. Ho was arrested the other day
ia Dover, N. II., and the watch recovered.
On Tuesday an examination was had beforo
Judge True in this city, Leary was adjudged
guilty and ordered to recognize in the sum of
8900 for his appearance at the March term of
the Supreme Judicial Court. Ho obtained
sureties.
A correspondent in Vassalboro’ makes tlie j
following inquiries which he desires answered
through our columns:
“Your mention of the quantity of roofing
•late now being carried into market over the
Piscataquis 11. 11. leads me to inquire, how (
the first cost of covering a roof with slate
compares with that of best of cedar shingles.
Will sonic one familiar with the subject give
the desired information? Several parties in
this vicinity are desirous of knowing the
“figures,” and if this information can be had t
through the columns of the Journal, wc shall ,
receive it with favor and be very thankful.”
A correspondent write* to us from Thonias
ton that in looking over the statistics of that
town “I find we have one hundred and fifty
four widows to help make up our little com
munity of about a«00 inhabitants. Many of
them are amongst our largest property holders ]
and tome of them own and occupy the most j
expensive private residences in the place. At ;
a recent meeting of the stockholders of the
old Thomaston Hank, a majority of the shares J
were represented by women, and in the choice
of officers their vote elected the entire txiard
of Directors. Who can say that women have
no rights that are respected ?”
The field of ice has extended to the dam, form
ing a complete but uneven mass. A few more
cold night* will ensure a safe passage to heavy
teams across the lrcc bridge. Tlw fall of
snow on Monday lias given the ice and ruins
of the railroad bridge and buildings embedded
in it an appearance not unlike that of looking at
a pictnre through the medium of a stereoscope.
Wc understand tliat the debris ol the railroad
bridge will soon be brought on shore, as there
is much valuable lumber uud iron in the ruins
which may be made available in ths opera
tions of the railroad company. The water has
gradually subsided uhtil yesterday, when from
some cause it rose, by measurement in this
city, some three inches. If the cold weather
continues no further damage need be appre
hended from the mass of iee. It would be
well for our citizens, however, to be on their
guard and prepared for whatever may come.
A violent rain would give a repetition of the
disaster of Sunday last. A wise man will
forsee the danger and if he cannot flee from
it, pfepare to meet it. Care should lie taken
to make more secure buildings exposed to
freshets. The cellars of stores on the river
side of Water atect should be kept clear of
everything that may be injured by water.
We learn from tht* Muchias Union that par
ties from Boston have purchased the “Farns
worth Mountains” so called, in Jonesboro;
also are negotiating for the right of way for a
road and land and flats for wharf prn ilcges,
at tidewaters, with the view of cutting and ship
ping granite to the city markets. The above
Mountain is made of granite. Quantities of
it shipped last season was pronounced the
best ever used in Boston. The Union is glad
that there is a prospect of those granite built
hills being made to contribute to labor and
trade.
The Bangor Whig says Messrs. Wm.
Swazey and J. 1*. Ames of Bueksport, have
taken a contract from parties West to get from
Great l’ond 5000 tons of ice, more or less.
They are preparing by building ice-houses at
the Fond and on Swaaey’s wharf, Buck-port,
where it will be stored until it can be shipped.
A correspondent of the Freequc Isle Sun
rise says that in townships No’s. 7 8, lhtnged,
•‘are inexhaustibly and easy working marbles
quarries," and that in connection with the ex-1
tensive working of these quarries, good lime
could be made by the 10,000 casks for50 cents
per cask, to go from thence wherever its de
mands would carry it.
We learn from the Whig that the Mer

To Hon. N. P. Banks.
Mr. Banks addressed the Housu on this
subject. He said,
“Mr. Speaker—Although Mr. Burlingame
hnd rendered great services to this country he
was not officially connected with this govern- 1
nu nt at the time of his death. It is not prop
er, therefore, to interrupt the proceedings of
this House, at tiiis time, by anything more
than a statement of this sad occurrence. Vet j
I crave the indulgence of this House to say
that a fitting and proper opportunity will he
presented in regular course of business to ex- !
press our appreciation of his character and
great service. He wished to be remembered
in connection with these services. I prom- !
iscd him at the last interview that I had with ,
him that his name should not be forgotten. ;
His mediation between the great ancient em
pire of the East and the civilized nations of
the West, is one of the grandest services
which any man in modern time lias performed.
That service Mr. Burlingame had carried
nearly to its complete success.”
Messrs. Geo. E. Harris, J. J,. Morphia, j
Geo. K. W. McKee and W. L. Pierce, mem- (
bars elect from Mississippi, appeared and

Havana News.
Havana. Feb. 23.
The Captain General authorises the follow
ing statement in the official Journal:
Information lias come into the hands of the
government confirming the suspicions which
luive long been entertained. It is known that
agents of the Laberantes or Cubans who are
not fighting in the field, but are in other ways
working against Spain, have ordered their
men to join volunteer battillions here and
under cover of the uniform to perpetrate a
scries of assassinations on foreigners with
the object of embroiling tile government with
foreign powers. The assassination of
Greenwould was part of programme. The
governenment expects loyal volunteers to aid
it in exposing all traitors of this class. Act
ing Consul General Hall received two weeks
ago an anonymous letter warning him that
he was in danger of assassination. He noti
fied the Captain General of the circumstances
and paid no further attention to it. On the
fulluwing day three natives of Havana who
w ere suspected of connection with the pro
posed assassination, left suddenly for New
