City election two weeks from next Mon day. No injury was done to the Gardiner bridge during the recent freshet. Canada ‘•cutters" attracted attention on the street yesterday. Many interesting civil and criminal cases will come before the Court that meets in this city next week. The gushing youth who “shot at random,” but didn’t hit it, has lent his rifle to the man who “aimed at immortality.” There is increased religions interest in No blelmro’ and Shapleigh. In the former place nine persons have recently been baptized. The church-going people who were carried away by the flood last Sunday are expected to be in their place at church to-morrow. The name of the grammar school teacher is Stephen Cobb, and not Sylranus. Having to deal with realities, he disclaims any connec tion with the fictitious and sensational. Services in the Unitarian Church to-morrow, morning and evening. Morning—Subject Swedenborg's Life ; Kvening—Swedenborg’s “Spiritual World.” The legislative committee on Agriculture and a joint special committee appointed for the purpose, will visit the Agricultural College on Monday next, for the purposeof examin idg into its affairs.

Ad judged not guilty and discharged. The Y. M. C. Association will be visited in their meeting to-morrow afternoon at four o’clock, by a delegation from the Winthrop V. M. C. Association. We trust these breth ren will have a cordial reception. We learn that Evander and Frank Young, tons nf Mr. Joseph Young of Rockland, were drowned yesterday forenoon by the upsetting of n boat, in going from the shore to a vessel which was lying in Rockland harlior. Rev. A. K. 1*. Small of Portland, one of the most eloquent pulpit orators and effective preachers in the State, will preach in l)r. Ricker’s church to-morrow—morning and in the afternoon. The Franklin county delegation in the Leg islature is in some respects a model one, for neither Senator or Representatives, six in number, use tobacco in any of its forms, and they are likewise strict teetotallers. The people of Augusta have the most kind ly remembrance of the late Anson Burlin game. llis eloquent voice has been heard in this community for the cause of liberty and justice, and the news of his sudden death brings heartfelt sorrow. The Bowdoin Quarterly Conference (Free Baptist j bold their quarterly session w ith the church in Brunswick village next week, com mencing Tuesday afternoon, and continuing till Thursday night. The Portland and Ken. Railroad furnish free return tickets to all at tending the meeting who pass over the road. Yesterday altemoon a horse driven by Mr. Frank Pierce, who resides in this city on the east side of the river, took fright on Grove street, and running against a post overturned and smashed the sleigh to which he was at tached. Flora Moody, a young lady who was in the sleigh with Mr. Pierce, was thrown out and her face badly cut. Mr. L. L. Allen's residence in Hallowell was abruptly entered Thursday evening by a large posse of friends of both sexes. Mr. A. and his family were obliged to surrender to “superior force,” and allow the intruders to make coffee for sixty and partake of a good supper which their awn commissariat furn ished. It was an evening of enjoyment to all concerned. We regret to learn of the death of Mr Moses II. Metcalf of Winthrop, which took place at about six o’clock Thursday morning, lie was in the enjoyment of hit usual health the day previous, but after he hail retired for the night, he complained to his wife of a se vere pain in the breast. A physician was summoned, and the pain allayed, after which Mr. Metcalf fell asleep. In the early morn ing of Thursday, his wife awoke and found that her husband was again suffering severely. He soon after expired. Dea. Metcalf was a prominent and highly esteemed cittzon, and his sudden removal is deplurcd by all. His age was about 70 years. If any part of California, of the same ex tent of territory, should be known to yield ns large a harvest value of gold, as is now being gathered from the surface of the Kennebec river between Kichmond and this city, what a rush would there be from cold frozen Down East, to the canons and rapids of the golden State! Looking up river from the village of liichmond the other day, we counted no less than twenty new immense iee store houses, being filled with the transparent blocks of purest ice by men and horses covering the surface for two miles upward. We were told that to those laborers will be paid all of twenty-fire thousand dollars, for the benefit of themselves and families; and that, for the ice already deposited in houses at Kichmond vil lage the proprietors have been offered and have refused an advance of thirty thousand dollars above the cost of collecting it. Any where within the region above described, the ice is cut, removed to the storehouses, packed there in, and delivered on bonrd the vessels that are brought to their river walls, at nn expense of seventy-five cents per ton, and every ton more harvested is worth three dollars where it is. Who would have thought once that the ice fields of the Kennebec would have been found richer than Mexican or Californian gold mines? There is no place in the United States where so good ice can be procured and transported to market at so small a cost, as on this river from Kichmond to Augusta. And the business thus inaugurated must bo per petual. The 6tuinpage costs nothing; all the expense is in harvesting and shipping it. Jack Frost, the ice-making king, is sure to manufacture a large supply every winter. Heeling of City Council. At the regular meeting on Wednesday, the petition of Seth H. Moody for establishment of dividing line between Augusta and Windsor was received and referred to the City engi neer, with instructions to confer with the town authorities of Windsor and establish the line as prayed for. The following orders were passed: Ordered, That the Mayor be authorized and directed to draw his warrant on the City Treasurer for the sum of fifty dollars, to be paid to Joshua B. Hartford, in consideration of a piece of land on the north side of his lot, on the corner of Grove and Gage streets, which lie proposes to relinquish to the city for the purpose of widening the street north of his lot above named, the same to be paid to him whenever he shall quit-claim the said land to the city. Ordered, That the Mayor be authorized and directed to draw his warrant on the City Treasurer for the sum of twenty-five dollars, to be paid to the Clerk of Common Council, in addition to his salary, for extra services rendered by him the past year; also the same for the present year. The last meeting of the Cily Council for the present year will be held on Saturday, March 12th, at 2 o’clock I‘. M. Mr.*ndMrs. Eleazer Harlow of Westmin ster, West Vt., the parents of our estimable fellow-citizen, l>r. II. M. Harlow of this city, celebrated their Golden Wedding at their home on the 31st of January. The occasion w'as a most pleasant one. Their children and I grand-ehildren, a noble company, some of them from a great distance, came to greet their aged parents with tokens of affectionate regard, and to implore the divine benediction upon them as they are gently descending the western declivity of life. The Bellows’ Kails j Times in speaking of the happy occasion, -avs : “ 1 he occasion was instructive, snow in# the i large influence of a woman who never made a speech in public, or voted in t >wn meeting, or sought any of the professions to increase her influence ; never was cheered on the platform, hut always had in her humble but well-order ed home the cheer of happy voices and the constant clapping of little hands, and the clat ter of little feet,” The highest style of-a woman is a Christian mother; her home is her little world—in it she is a power. The exer cises of the golden wedding were of the most interesting character. Dr. Harlow was pres ent; also Edwin Harlow, formerly of this city, whom many of our citizens will remember. The following original hymn was sung by the happy circle of relatives : We gather at the homestead, At the old familiar hoard, A happy band of brothers. And ot loving sisters dear. We come from far and from near, With our merry children dear; To greet our good old Father, Auu our loving Christian Mother. Itoth. we blef«H jou. we may say, On th s sweetly solemn duy; Day of days, of '‘seven fold” ray. Your bright Golden Wedding day. Not silver gills nor golden. Nor trinkets rare and olden ; lint love and blessing bunging, We come w’ith joy and singing. Two vacant chairs here we. see, Yea, four we may even say ; Tw o are on the deep blue sea. Two in the land of the free. Fifty years ago, brief span, Life’s sweet Journey you began; With God you’ve walked hand in hand, And talked ot the better land. As you near the crystal shore, Of the sea we’re nailing o’er; May the Lord who’s goue before, Greet you from the crystal shore. And your waiting, watching o’er, Land you to be toss’d no more, Safe upon the Eternal Shore, Lauded to be tooa’d no more. The following named parties at different lo j ealities in Dresden and Richmond, are en gaged largely in the ice business : Ira Sturgis, 11. A. l)e\Vitt, Geo. F. Weeks, W. M. Thayer, j Win. K. Lancey, Chas. IJ.iiley and T. G. | Storer. These persons hold the most desira ble localities for the ice business on the river, | giving employment to a large number of men. Mr. Weeks has more ice secured in the river than can be put up, his tract covering many acres yet untouched and which promises a ; most abundant harvest. Notwithstanding all the fears excited by the feihet, the ice har I vast is to be a rich one. Lady Headers of the Jocrkal.—Our ! 'laughter, whom Dr. Farrar (now- stopping at i Augusta), cured of “female weakness,” &c., | is, of course, very enthusiastic, and desires i all ladies similarly afflicted to make a trial of . his skillful treatment. Our daughter had ; been a great sufferer for five long years; had not walked so far as across the 6trect for three j years, and had been confined to her bed for a ; year, at the time we placed her under Dr. i Farrar's treatment. In less than three weeks she was able to ride and walk. She was giv | en up by our good family physician, and two j others who stood high in their profession, as j an incurable case. She w as told by them her lease was fast terminating in cancer of the | womb. | Those wishing further evidence in the high ; !v important case, are requested to write to the subscriber, Mrs. E. C. Wueelek. Watertown. Mass. The death of lion. Joseph 11. Monroe, Judge of Probate for Piscataquis County, which took place Sunday last, was caused by cancer on the stomach, with which he has been afflicted for a number of years, but not so vio lently but that he could attend to the duties of his oflfieo till of lute. The editor of the j Observer says there have been six Judges of i Probate since be first established a paper in that county, of whom four have died in office. It remuins now with the Governor and Coun- ) t il to appoint a successor to Mr. Monroe, un til an election by the people in September next. We learn from the Keporter that the Skow j began High School will give an Exhibition at I Coburn Hall, Wednesday evening, March 2d, under the direction of their highly popular teacher, Mr. J. F. Moody. The entertain ment will consist of two plays entitled “Lover by Proxy,” and “Call at No. 1—7,” together with declamations, reading, &„*. Music by the Skowhcgan Band. The mills at FranKfort, consisting of saw mill, two shingle mills and stave machine were washed away on the 1‘Jth inst., owing to the , ice breaking up in the pond in consequence i of the freshet. Our venerable Bro. Edes of the Piscataquis I Observer, visited Bangor last week, for the | , first time in 45 years. lie went by railroad, i The Whig says a meeting of the Penobscot County Medical Association was held in Ban gor on Wednesday. The President, Preston Fisher, called the meeting to order. On mo tion of the Secretary, .]>rs. Mayo, Walton, Preble and II. II. Seavey were elected mem bers. The following officers wgre chosen : President. A. C. Hamlin; 1st Vice President, Preston Fisher; 2d Vice President, T. U. Coe; Secretary, H. II. Seavey; Standing Committee, Preston Fisher, K. K. Jones, E. N. Mayo, J. C. Weston. Interesting discus sions were held upon various topics pertain ing to the profession. After a session of three hours the meeting was adjourned to the third Wednesday of May next, at 2 o'clock I’. M. We learn from the Telegraph that on Sun day afternoon last. Kev. Dr. Adams notified his society at Brunswick, that he had received a call to take charge of a new enterprise in the building up of a Congregational church in Orange, New Jersey’ This call was untiro ly unsolicited by him. He had not felt at lib erty to decline it, neither had he concluded to accept it. He had asked leave of absence for a few weeks—it may be a few months—mak ing arrangements to supply his pulpit during hi< absence, when further light may be thrown upon the question, lie will communicate with his people. A writer in the Lewiston Journal makes the statement based on the figures of the Commissioner of Internal ltevenue that New England pays yearly for intoxicating drinks, nearly fire dollars for each inhabitant. The Gardiner Home Journal remarks that the amount of good which might be done with such a sum sensibly expended, or the amount of harm which might be prevented were it thrown away, even, instead of being spent for j such a purpose, is a problem which the ! thoughtful may work out at their leisure. The Portland Press, in speaking of the re signation of Attorney General Frye, says "lie ha« been a conscientious and faithful prose cuting officer, and we hazard nothing in pre dicting that he is soon to attain at no distant day a more enviable position than that which he has just left. As for his successor there can be no doubt that he will distinguish him self in his new position as he always has in those that he has formerly held. The village of Alva, Aroostook County, ac cording to the Iioulton Pioneer, takes the Maine Liquor Law to he the higher law. At any rate, its citizens don’t allow whiskey any sight within its borders. A few days since some of the men and women gathered about a suspected shop and would not let up till they had-emptied some of the maddening fluid into the street. We learn from the American that Rev. W. H. Savarv of Ellsworth, has been appointed County Supervisor of Schools, on the recom mendation of the Hancock delegation. He has received his commission and will enter upon the duties at the proper time. Mr. Savarv is an earnest and enthusiastic man, and a warm friend of popular education. The Reporter says Messrs. Vosmus & Bach elder at the Eddy in Skowhegan are tarrying on an extensive wool picking and pelt tanning business. Mr. Vosmus is most favorably known as a wool dealer of many years, and has been so fair in his transactions that he has a host of friends among the wool growers. Hon. Ozias Blanchard of Dexter, has late ly returned from Virginia, where he has been for some time for the purpose of settling his sons on farms there. 11c located them on the Hampshire & London Railroad, about thirty miles from Washington. The Rockland Free Press says the Thomas ton Lyceum have extended an invitation to Gen. J. A. Hall to deliver before them a lecture which he has prepared on the Battle of Gettys burg. The General participated in that en gagement. The Maine Democrat says Mr. Frank War ren and Mr. Hampton E. Hill of Biddeford, have justentered the Medical School of Maine, at Bowdoin College. The fifteenth annual course of lectures has just commenced. The Democrat says lion. James M. Bur bank has brought a suit against Simon Milli ken of Saco, the owner of the dog which so terribly bit Miss Burbank, a week or two since, laying damages at So,000. The Brunswick Telegraph says so far as we can learn, with a single exception, no ice has been taken from the river at Brunswick this winter. Mr. Henry B. Coffin secured a few loads of poor i«e a few days since. The Finance Committee of the Fort Fair field Library Association acknowledge the re ceipt of 850—a donation from Hon. Lot M. Morrill. The County Commissioners will meet at Xorridgewoek Tuesday 1st. If you have patronized Kinsman, you knew how he uses his customers. If you have not, try him once and you will not make your purchases anywhere else for articles in his line. He has almost everything that is good and useful for sale—prices low. Why is Kinsman's store like the Daily Journal ? Because it always contains some thing new. “Commonwealth" is the best cigar extant.

Augusta, Feb. 31th, 1S70. hSGfeb-2w BY TELEGRAPH — TO THE — Daily Kennebec Journal. [By the Western Union I.inc— Office* Granite Bank Building and tire State House.) FORTY-FIRST CONGRESS. Senate.—Mr. Wilson introduced a Dill to prevent prize fighting. The bill provides for imprisonment for not loss than two years and a fine not less than 8.1.000 for engaging in a prize fight in any State or Territory, and half of said penalty tor aiding in such fights as seconds or surgeons; and United States Courts are to take cognizance of the offence. The Senate then adjourned until Monday. Washington. Feb. 25. Horsr..—The resolution by Mr. Shanks, of Indianna. was adopted, directing the Commit tee on Military Affairs to inquire whether any officer of the army and navy, (including the war and navy departments,) had advised or solicited cadetships for any person not a bona fide resident of a district or otherwise disqualified, or whether any such officer ac quiesced or officially accepted such nomina tion. knowing it to be of the character indi cated. The Indian appropriation bill, appropriat ing £3.188,935, was then taken up in the Committee of the Whole. Mr. Sargent, of Cuba, having charge of the hill denounced the last massacre of Indians by Col. Baker’s command, as related by Vincent Colycr, and regretted that the hero of Shenandoah had to stand sponger for such a deed. Mr. Paine, of Wisconsin, remarked that he could not believe the statement as made by Mr. Coyler, particularly after regarding the order and report of Gen. Sheridan and his instructions to Gen. Hancock in Novem ber, 1809. Air. ©urgent sum ne was not conucmmng Gen. Sheridan nr the general of the army; hut simply striking at the ay stein. There was no warrant in the laws of God or man for de stroying women and children, because their husbands and fathers were robbers. Omnip otence had nothing to do with it. The bill was simply condemning the system. He did not think that the proper wav to deal with the Indians was by a military arm. and yet lie be lieved that (ion. Sheridan at heart was as kind ns the gentleman from Wisconsin. (Mr. Kldridge.) or himself. He commended the quaker policy among the Indians, and believed they had accomplished bettor results than any other agency. Mr. Vourhecrs, of Indianna, condemned Gen Sheridan’s mode of warfare, declaring that he would not vote a dollar to uphold such a system—not of warefure but of discrimin ate massacre. The discussion was continued by Messrs. Clark of Ohio, Lawrence and Wilson of Penn sylvania. and Mr. lildridge of Wisconsin; af ter which the Committee rose and the House adjourned until Monday.
