Messrs. Colter & Turner have a fine assort
ment of trunks in readiness for the travelling
season.
The accessibility of the water power of
Maine is one of its great features. Maine
lies upon the track of commerce from land to
land, hus a hundred first-class harbors, and a
full third of its most valuable power is al
ready accessible cither by rail, by coaster or
steamer.
The man with three hands—a right hand, a
left hand, and a little behind hand—would be
a handy fellow to go round with a hand or
gan. With one hand ho could play “Hand
me down my Leghorn hat.” ami with the other
two, hand round the contribution box and
obtain band-some contributions.
The Hastcm Normal School at Castiuc, not
yet three years old, begins its first week of
the spring term with an entering class of
nearly forty-five students and a total attend
ance of one hundred and ten, and “still they
come.” There is a large representation from
the thinly settled towns of eastern Maine.
We are pleased to hear that Sabattis Lodge
of Good Templars in this city is prospering,
new members being added nearly every meet
ing. A series of public temperance meetings
such as have been inaugurated in other sec
tions of the state might be the means of doing
much good here. Who will move in toe
matter?
After careful investigation, it is ascertained
that the Kennebec dam was not injured by the
ice freshet to the alarming extent that news
paper correspondents and others have been so
industrious to publish to the world. Only
about seven feet of the upper portion of the
structure has been carried a way, extending
some two hundred feet in length. The foun
dation and lower works seem to remain as
firm and substantial ns ever. It will there
fore be seen that to make the necessary re
pairs will not require a protracted interrup
tion of business, nor will it probably be neces
sary to await the drought of summer before
commencing the repairs. To know that the
old foundation stands secure is indeed a relief
ami a blessing to the community.
On Monday, when the 11 :30 A. M. accom
modation train from Augusta reached Hal
lowell, Mr. Holmes, the conductor, learned
that the track about two miles below Hallow
ell was obstructed by a disabled locomotive
attached to a freight train which consequent
ly could not proceed. Mr. Holmes at once
detached his own car at the Hallowell station
and sent his locomotive back to Augusta for
a heavy freight machine, the ‘•Farmingdale”
not living sufficiently powerful to draw the
locomotive-less freight train. Another loco
motive was procured at Augusta, from a point
near the railroad bridge, and arrived at Hal
lowed in just ten minutes' time from the mo
ment when the “Farmingdale" was despatch
ed from that station on its errand. Pretty
quick work!
The Directors of the Portland & Kennebec
Railroad held a meeting in this city Monday
evening, chiefly for the purpose of determin
ing in regard to the material to be used in the
construction of a new railroad bridge across
the river in this city. The following gentle
men were present: J. B. Brown and II. X.
Jose of Portland, Win. I). Sewall and G. M.
Patten of Bath, N. W. Whitmore of Gard
iner, P. Coburn of Skowhegan. and R. I).
Rice and Darius Aldenof Augusta. The Di
rectors decided to build their bridge over the
river here with iron, and it is understood that
Messrs. Kellogg, Clarke & Co., of Phoenix
ville, Pa., are the contractors, who will fur
nish a substantial “Pratt Truss” bridge and
complete it, for aliout $80,000. The cost of
repairing piers and carrying them up about
ten or twelve feet higher, and completing the
approaches to the bridge will be about 830.000
additional. Mr. George M. Patten of Bath,
one of the Directors, who has made iron
bridge construction a study, was appointed to
superintend the building of the bridge, by
personal attention to it, until completed. The
work will be pushed forward promptly.
The following beautiful poem, which ap
peared originally in the Bangor Whig, was
written by a little daughter of Hon. Lewis
Barker of Stetson, a niece of David Barker,
the favorite poet of Maine. The poem gives
evidence of genius :
AlUiHfcK AMI (.1111,1).
nr EVVIE UABKI.K.
Beside her sleeping child a mother knelt.
The evening breeze played with its silken
hair,
Tossing it gently o'er its brow. One hand,
(llose-tinted, like a dainty sea shell) lay •
Half hid beneath a cheek where dimples slept,
l.ike dri.wsy watchers o’er a lied of smiles.
Wandering in dreamland, little knows the
babe
Of eyes that fill with tears, gazing on her.
A mother's heart was made to yearn, and she
Who knows no moment when the tears within
Stand still before a pain tiiat is not pain—
When e'en the air is thick with prophecies
That leave their weight without their mean
ing: when
God is a name, and Christ were a vain tale,
But that he had a mother; when the sight
Of all tile Calvaries along the road
Fills her whole soul with horror, and she
stands
Weeping before imagined sepulchres—
Holds but a name, and claims an orphan child.
The mother pressed a kiss upon the brow
Of the young dreamer; and her murmured
words
Mingled their sweetness with rare fragrances.
And lay upon the air. “My precious babe,
Whose little life (half ravelled from my own)
Holds in its double thread my better self
Made holier by thine!—fain would I guard
The path that thou must tread—that 1 have
trod.
Shielding thee from all dangers and distress!
My own dark-shadowed years come marching
back.
Clunking their irons. Sounds from childhood
come
Like music heard o’er daisied meadows soft
And green. I feel anew the light and joy
Of life's beginning. In thy dawning life,
My heart—that gave a part of its own force
To quicken thine to action—warms again
Beneath the early glow. My life has been
A shifting scene of sunlight and deep shade !
Yet there are hours, my child, whose treas
ured sweets,
Like lingering fragrance, fill my homeliest
day
With light and beauty. May thy cup he filled
With all thy mother’s happiness added
To thine. Oh, God! if such a thing can be—
Let me draw from the future of my child
All bitterness—all knowledge of the had
That rends the veil, and breaks the only dream
That is not haunted. Let me yield to her
All my life’s sunlight, and I am content
To sit in darkness evermore." The babe,
Waking from rosy dreams, smiled at her
tears.
Logrcnia.
Our citizens will have the opportunity the
present week of witnessing this remarkable
entertainment at Granite Hall. Logrcnia will
open this evening, and remain four days, dur
ing which time he will introduce his choicest
entertainments, selected from an immense re
pertoire of magical illusions. His trained
canaries, Java sparrows, paroquets, white
mice and Russian cat are said to be wonder
ful in their performances. The Dayton Ohio
Journal says, “The kind of entertainment that
Logrcnia gives every night at the Opera
House, arc prentinently the style the people
like. He is the most adroit deceptist we ever
had here. Then his birds! he has got the
nicest thing in birds you ever saw. Hiscanaries
do every thing but talk, and they make the
best stagger at that we ever witnessed, but
i the most engaging point, is the giving of gifts
at the close of the performance.” Mr. L.
j will give a matinee for families Saturday
! afternoon at 24 o'c lock, when every child will
i receive a present.

FORTY-FIRST CONGRESS.
Washington. Morch 15.
Run ate. A concurrent resolution for the
appointment of a Special .Joint Committee on
Indian Affairs was taken up.
Mr. Edmunds said the appointment of a
committee was generally looked on as the
means of playing into the hand.- of the Indian
ring.
Mr. Howard thought that its appointment
would lead to confusion worse confounded,
and that the Indian affairs should he left in
the hands of the Executive.
Mr. Wilson expressed his faith in the hu
man and Christian policy which the President
sought to inaugurate.
A motion to lay on the table was con
sidered a test vote, resulting in a tie, ami the
Vice President voted nay," thus keeping the
subject before tljjp Senate.
The* morning hour expired and it went
over.
The Georgia bill was then taken up and
Mr. Stewart continued his speech of yester
day.
Messrs. Edmunds and Wood supported the
1 Ilinghatn amendment—claiming its adoption
would have a tendency to repress disorder
and violence, and that Congress has power, if
necessary, to preserve peace in the State of
' Georgia; ut all events it would he better tiiat
j she should go democratic ten times over than
' that Congress should, in the face of an intelli
gent country, attempt the overthrow of the
settled course of practice in this respect.
1 Mr. Drake offered an amendment providing
tor the furnishing of troops by the President
on the call of governors or legislatures of the
late- rebel States, whenever they are unable
to repress organizations for the purpose of
violence or the obstruction of the luw.
The Senate went into executive session and
then adjourned.
House. The House went into a Com
mittee of the Whole, on the deficiency bill.
The item of 815.000 inserted for a Post
Office and a Court House at Desmoines,
Iowa, and that for the Court House at Mad
ison. Wis., was increased from 820,000 to
830,000.

tion of Mr. Coburn, to mid to the proposition
of $400,000 for the New York Post Office, a
provision that no money should he expended
until the plan with specifications had been
adopted and fixed by law, and the cost also
fixed by law.
Mr. Dawes of Mass., said while in favor
of fixing a limit to the total cost, he advocated
the appropriation provided for the bill, and
urged that it would involve no departure from
any plan which might hereafter be adopted.
If otherwise, the work must soon cease, and
the government be subjected to a greatly in
creased expense.
Mr. Ilutler of Mass., argued that there
would be no security in limiting the cost at
the outset, and cited the cases ot tile Boston
Custon House, w hich was originally limited
to *1.1.00. hut which cost $1 .000,000. The
Cincinnati Custom House which was limited
to 675.000, but which cost $262,000.
In the course of the debate, Mr. Schenck
of Ohio defended Mr. Mullett. the Treasury
architect, and said he should offer a resolti
1 tion for an investigation by the Committee on
Public Buildings of bis whole officieial con
; duct, and all contracts made with his ap
proval.
A recess was then had.
The discussion was continued by Messrs.
Farnsworth. Dawes, Butler, Stevenson and
others, who were friendly to it.
Mr. Coburn's amendment was rejected.
tin motion of Mr. Dawes of Mass.. $20,000
was appropriated for continuing work on the
Capitol grounds.
j Mr. Haight of X. .J., inquired how much
: ret onstruction had cost up to the present
time.
Mr. Dawes replied as near as he could as
certain that it was about $2,250,000.
Mr. Haight inquired whether the money j
i had not been expended rather to make men
loyal to the | arty than to the country.
Mr. Dawes denied that, and said the only
desire was to make the men in the South
obey the govirnment and the law.
Mr. Eldridge of Wis., declaimed against
the word ••loyal” as a word which he dispised
and hated it always reminded him of the
definition given by the contractor during the
war. When pressed to explain what he
meant by saying he felt loyal, lie said he filt
as if he wanted to steal something or kill
somebody; as for himself, he was patriotic,
not loyal—the word did not belong to this
country, it only belonged to Ma-«achusctts.
Mr. Dawes of Mass., moved to in'ert an
appropriation of 820.000 to enable the Sister
hood of Eadice of Mercy, in Charleston. S.
C.. to rebuild their orphan asylum destroyed
during the w ar. in acknowledgment of their
services to ti e Union prisoners in the hospi
tal at Charleston.
The Chair ruled the amendment out of
order, and the House sustained the decision—
00 to 55.
The motion to strike out the item for
$25,000 for repairs to the President’s Man
sion was rejected, and the item of $4.,.86
for expenses of \nrious committees of the
House inserted, which completed the bill,
after which the committee rose and the House
adjourned.

FROM WASHINGTON.
Washington, March 15.
Vice President Conant, of the Brunswick &
Albany (Georgia) Kailrond, to-day tele
graphed here an account of the disturbances
by the workmen on that road, which origi
nated not in the non-payment of wages, as
ged. but in an organized attempt to drive
oil Supt. Uulburt, a prominent republican.
Mr. Conant says the authorities at Bruns-|
wiek could afford no security for us ; on the
contrary they united with the men in their
demands, and encouraged the movement,
evidently expecting thereby to drive away
| our Northern employees. I am satisfied from
what 1 have seen, that unless we can have
protection here, public enterprise in this
I Slate, controlled bv Northern men, cannot be
! carried on. Gen. Terry, upon an investiga
