Winthrop people arc interested in several cases that are to come before the Court at the present term. Interesting discussions on the subject of temperance arc being held at the meetings of the Winthrop Washingtonian society. The house, ell and barn of Silas Dickerson in Edgecomb, together with about fourteen cords of wood were destroyed by fire on the 24th ult. I.oss 8-0<>0, insured for 8.150. Rev. William A. Drew of this city is an nounced to deliver his Lecture on the Pilgrim Fathers in Waterville, on Tuesday next, the 8th inst, before the “Euphemian Society,” a literary body connected with the Classical In stitute. _ It will I e seen by notice in another column that the trains will commence running regu larly between this city and Skowhcgan on Friday. The railroad company have pushed on the work at Seven Mile brook with com- , mcndable alacrity. There it increased interest in the welfare j of the boys at the State Reform School. A ! new day school is soon to he organized, with efficient teachers. There are now about two hundred hoys at the institution, the most ot them between twelve atul seventeen years ol age, as we learn from Tobias Lord, Esq. The railroad company are erecting a station at the east end of the demolished railroad ' bridge in this city. After the completion ot ’ the bridge at Seven Mile brook, passengers for the east will purchase their tickets from I this station, as this will be a permanent sta- | lion until the rebuilding of the railroad bridge. A new material for wash dresses is satin jean, all cotton, of as firm body as pique, but finely twilled, and with a gloss like satin. The ground is white, with polka dots of gay color, or else inch stripes of French blue or green, with rosebuds on the whito stripe be tween. Col. H. A. DeWitt has been confined to his house by sickness since the day of the great freshet. By over-exertion and exposure he contracted a lung fever from which he has since suffered. On Tuesday his case exhibit ed alarming symptoms, but we are glad Jto learn that yesterday he was more comforta ble. Our correspondent at Daman-cotta informs us that there is a match factory at tliat place that uses about nine hundred cords of pine wood annually in the manufacture of matches. There arc also at Damariscotta, five saw mills, a foundry and a grist mill. There are six stores doing a good business: also two churches in a flourishing condition, and two j hotels. Nathaniel Appleton, a distinguished divine and minister of Cambridge, Mass., born in 1062, received the second degree of Doctor of : Divinity which the Cambridge University ever conferred, the first having been conferred on Increase Mather 60 years before. If the col leges would now-a-days allow the same in terval to occur in the conferring of I). D.s, the title in most cases would mean something more than Fiddle D. D.'s J. Dr. I. Farrar, recently of Hartford, now stoppping in this city, has placed in our hands a little book of which he is the author, entitled “It’s for another.” The person who buys it for “another” will find in it matter of vital in terest to himself, as it deal* with subjects of great importance as bearing upon the health and happiness of the whole human race. It treats upon a delicate subject, but because the subject is of such a character it has heretofore been kept too much in the dark. Much light may be gleaned by a perusal of this little work. Whoever undertakes to read it, will not put it down until the bottom of the last page is reached. The book may be obtained of Dr. Farrar. In the cry about womcn’i'fights, people arc liable to overlook women's wrongs. Among these may be mentioned the great inequality of wages between men and women. If a woman performs a certain piece of work with the tame skill and despatch as a man, she should in all fairness receive the same com pensation. There has been a great reform in this particular the last few years. We need not draw upon the experience of the aged to cite the time when woman's labor was not allowed to come in competition with the labor of man, when a woman had to remnin in ob scurity, while her brother witli perhaps in ferior business capacities had permission by the rules of society to engage in every de partment of industry. Now, there are many nositions which women are called to fill, and which public sentiment at the present day is forced to acknowledge are filled with ability. This point gained—woman recognized as a co-worker-with man—the remaining problem to be solved is that of compensation. Reason and common sense concur in the opiniou that the same amount of labor performed in an equally skillful manner by either sex, should be entitled to the same reward. The Bangor Whig speaks of a sad case. A voung gentleman, named Weymouth, living in Stetson, has for two years or more suffered with necrosis or mortification of the tibia or thick bone of the lower leg. The disease is the result of humor, and is gradual in its effect, but has until late years been supposed incurable, and to necessitate amputation. The effect is curious, for when the bone be gins to mortify, weaken and crumble, a new bone forms around it, making a perfect sock et for the necrosis, with the exception of here and tbero an aperture, or “breathing place" for the old hone. While the old bone remains in, of the course the new bone can never at tain the strength and firmness of the natural structure. Mr. Weymouth submitted his ease to the Drs. Scavey sometime since, who decided that it could he cured. They twice operated on the hone just below the knee, re moving the necrosis where met each time. Yesterday Mr. Weymouth came to town for the final operation. This was just above the ankle, and was a very delicate one owing to the structure of the lames in that locality. It is necessary to eut away the new bone or shell on one side and then remove the necrosis oy small sections, which are cut and removed with great difficulty. The operation was suc cessful, and the Doctors promise the young man now that lie shall have a perfect leg in a short time. Kuprrae Judicial Court, March Term. Charles Daafbrtb, J. Presiding.

That large and wealthy agricultural town between Waterville and Skowhegan, Fair field, nnd its flourishing embryo city on the Kennebec, is a very Fair-ville, and by such a name, rather than the mills of Kendall, (who has owned none of the mills for a generation.) it should henceforth be called. Will the Leg islature please change the name of its village corporation from “Kendall’s Mills" to Fair ville? A mass meeting of the citizens of Pi-cata quis was held at tile Court House in Dover, Wednesday evening, Feb. 113, to consider the question of railroad consolidation. At the appointed hour a large number had assembled, representing all parts of the county. After the meeting was organized, the lion. Josiali Crosby, of Dexter, was introduced and deliv ered an able speech of over one hour’s li ngth, opposing consolidation. Mr. Crosby was fol lowed by lion. A. M. Kobinson, who poke more particularly of the local effects o! con solidation, and at the close of his speech of fered the following resolutions, which were unanimously adopted : Htsolvtd, That the proposed consolidation of all the connecting Uailronds of the State into one monster corporation, by placing ex orbitant power in the hands of a few men and their unknown and perhaps unscrupulous successors forever, by its exclusive control of fares and rates, by its extinction of the ad vantages of competition both as to fares and rates and the building of new railroads, by the subjection of all railway interests to its own dictation, by its unrestrained and unre strainable power of corruption, is fraught witli imminent danger to the material inter ests. and liberties of the people, and calls earnestly upon all the friends of equal rights to utter their emphatic protest against the un hallowed proposition. Resolved, That the consolidation of the P. & K. and M. C. Uailroads is equally objec tionable inasmuch as those companies by their central position, the enormous me ans at their command, and overshadowing influence, would soon drag all other railroads into their capacious maw, and the inevitable result would be that all the purposes contemplated by a present consolidation of all railroads would shortly be accomplished. Resolved, That we respectfully reque-t the Senator and Hepresentatives of Piscataquis county to use all honorable means to defeat consolidation in all its forms. Rttolred. Tlwt a copy ot these resolutions be forwarded to our Senator and Represen tatives, and that the same be published in the Piscataquis Observer, Bangor Whig and Courier, Daily Kennebec Journal, and Daily Argus.

Number One Hundred Thotsand.—On the 15th day uf December. 184C, the Connect icut Mutual Life Insurance Company issued policy No. 1. On the aid day of January, 1870. was issued No. 100,000. This is the first company in the country, with one exception, and we believe in the world, which has issued 100,000 policies, and there was quite a commotion among the agen cies of the company as the time drew near when the number 100,000 would be reached. Letters and telegrams were received from all parts of the country asking for that number, but it was finally awarded to Wm. E. Harvey, Esq., of this city, actuary of the St. I.ouis Mutual Life Insurance company. The policy is for 810.000. and was written in the strong hand of Hon. G. S. Gilman, one of the Con necticut Mutual directors, who claimed the honor of filling up the policy bearing that charmed number. The success of this great company in securing mcnmern in only >']uuu ed by the libernlity of' its dealings with them, as is shown by ils dividends, which during the current year run from forty-fire to two hun dred and forty per cent. Its assets are over twenty-eight million dollars, and we are informed that nearly four millions of its immense fund is invested in this city. A company combining the advan tages possessed by the Connecticut Mutual, together with substantial benefits derived by our citizens from its bringing large sum from the East and investing them with us, should not he ignored by those seeking insurance.— Missouri Republican.

The rejiort or the Senate Judiciary Com- ( mitlce on the legality of ilie present Georgia Legislature, and whether further legislation is necessary, was presented this morning by Mr. Edmunds. The committee after review ing the history of the assembling and organi zation. say that Gen. Terry's action of ex cluding certain inelegible members, was not according to law, though they acquit him of any intent to exceed his lawful authority. The admission of persons who received only a minority vote in plate of inelegible members, was also illegal. The committee therefore report that under the first resolu tion. that in the following respects tile organ ization of the legislature was not warranted bv law. pirst, In the control and direction of its proceedings bv Mr. Harris. Second, In the exclusion from taking the oaths, and from taking their seats of three members elect who offered to swear. Third. In the seating of persons hot hav ing a majority of vote of electors. In respect to the second resolution, wheth er any further legislation is necessary in re si>ecl to the organization of the legislature, the committee report that inasmuch as the errors of Gen. Terry do not appear to have worked any serious injustice in point of fact, and as the error on the seating ot the minority candidates was committed by the House of Representatives, in the exercise of the right ordinarially belonging to it. In the first in stance, and inasmuch as it appears certain that the terms of office of the members of thc Legislature und State Government will ex pire at the same time that they would, had | the State been finally restored to its place in ! tlie Tnion, in July laliS. They feel justified in omitting to recommend any further legis lation on the subject of organizing the legis lature. Full Particulars of the Loss of the Steamer Golden City. S.vs Fnaxcisco, Mar. 1. The particulars of the loss of the steam ship Golden City are as follows : The Golden City left this port on the 18th I of February for Penama, with 500 passengers for New York, and a valuable cargo includ ing teas received by the China steamer, and a heavy treasure list. On the morning of the 22d, about 7 o’clock, she went ashore near Point l.azaro, Lower California, about 15 miles distant from the Pay of Santa Maria. The passengers and ! treasures were landed with little difficulty, the waterdieing smooth, but the locality was barran and far from human inhabitation. A party was immediately sent to Point l.azaro to erect a signal, and to keep a lookout for j the steamship Colorado, which was about due ! from Panama, and was signalled at about noon on the 24th. It was impossib^- for tlie ! steamer to receive the sufferers on board at the scene of the disaster, owing to the heavy surf; and they were compelled to walk to Santa Maria Hay over an utterly barran waste, enduring groat distress from hunger | and thirst. Several were lost in the sand hills and hushes, and had to he abandoned by I the steamer. Only a small quantity of pro V IP lull S UIIU BBin.ni 1 i AA *1 win iiiv "nvn, ami it was fortunate that the Colorado arrived so soon, or otherwise intense suffering must have resulted. When the wreck commenced breaking up and the cargo drifted ashore, some casks containing liquor were broken open by the- passengers and drunkenness and disorder ensued. Fearing bloodshed would be the result, a strung party of the passen gers organized to destroy the liquors as fast as it came ashore. The passengers had no confidence in Captain Comstock, and paid no attention to his orders. They held an indig nation meeting on board the Colorado, and passed resolutions to the effect that in their opinion the wreck ot the Golden City, was due to the incapability or carlessness of the commandoring officer, and much of the un necessary suffering on shore could be traced to the same source. The passengers with but ftw exceptions, reached here last night. The baggage and treasures were left on the beach under pro per guard. Robbery. Hartfoiid, Conn., March 1. Edward Kalev, a soloon keeper in Willi 1 mantic, was knocked down and robbed by two men on Tuesday night, who threw pep per in his eyes, and beat and bruised him | severely.

March l, A letter from Col. T). Stanley, of Dakotah Territory, gives a discouraging account of Indian Affairs in that region, based chiefly upon the information brought by a young Sioux chief, named Little White Swan. The chief Is very friendly to the white* and is re garded as perfectly reliable. lie says that re cently a notorious renegade and murderer named John Kicharda stirred up and influ enced his people against the whites, ami that the hostilities of the coming season will prob ably be worse than ever before. Several other tribes besides the .Sioux are becoming more hostile and are sending war parties in the direction of the riattee. A severe battle was fought lietween a party of Sioux and Crows.
