Justice of the Supreme Court.
Tilt* rate of assessment of the State tax the
present year has been fixed at six mills on a
dollar, and one cent on each poll.
Persons employed in the post office are nut
necessarily men ot letters. Sotuc o! them
are paper men.
The lirst robin, the lirst bluebird, and tbe
advance guard of tile wild geese tribe are
eagerly looked fur.
Some of tbe mills upon the Augusta dam
have commenced operating agai 1, tbe head of
water being sufficient to enable them to do a
moderate business.
A Gardiner render writes : “There has been
much said about gold going to pat. Can any
one tell me when it will reach maim, as the
old lady seems to he left out in the cold."
Recent disasters caused by carelessly hand
ling inflammable or explosive materials, should
warn people as their danger, and the necessi
ty of being careful.
The soft weather is thawing and rotting the
ice so rapidly that danger from a freshet will
he out of the question in a few days if the
moderate thaw continues.
Schoolmasters before the light thrown in
upon their work by county institutes and other
reformatory agencies, belonged to tbe cane
nine species.
The following nominations by the Governor
have been eonfi uned by the Conn' ll Nathan

km«a>, at a salary of ?2100 a year, and board.
Only two surprise parties la-t evening, one
at the house ot Mis. Mender, and another
at the house of Mrs. Macomher. It was not
a very good night for surprise parties or we
should have more to chronicle. This matter,
horn of benevolence and good feeling, is be
coming contagious.
The following arc tile officers of the Lyceum
connected w itli the high school :
President, V C. Kutherford; Vice Pre-i
ll, nt. G. Klien Perkins; Secretary. Miss. Liz
zie Vivian: Treasurer. Miss Julia Moor. Kx
eciilivc Committee. Misses. Howe, Samp-on
and Ladd, and Messrs. Macomher and Whit
ney.
The saving of ice in the Southern State*
lia* been so limited that the people in that sec
tion much expect to pay high prices for the
cooling luxury in the forthcoming «ea«on.
Those who have put up lee oil the Kennebec
for Southern markets, we are glad to know*
will reap rich rewards for their enterprise,
which at one time appeared remarkably du
bious.
The employing of teachers has been trans
fei red by legislative net from district agents
to the superintending school committee*.
This places the w hole responsibility of good
"nr poor teachers, and consequently good or
poor schools, where it properly belongs. The
committees will undoubtedly he subject to se
vere censure if they do not discharge the full
measure of their duty.
There was a happy surprise party at the
house of Capt. Samuel trill on the east side of
the river, on Monday evening. A large com
pany assembled, bringing with them money,
provisions and groceries, such as are used in

Bethlehem Lodge K; and A. M. of this city,
held a meeting on Monday evening for work,
at which there was a large attendance, not
only of members of the lodge, but vistiug
members from Augu-ta lodge, Winthrop, and
several members of the Legislature, who had
accepted an invitation to be present. Tin
spacious lodge room was well filled at the
opening. The special work in hand was ac
complished without discord or jar. which
speaks well for the proficiency attained by the
officers. The details must forever remain as
a scaled luniks hut when the work of the cv. -
ningwas finished, what followed was of a pub
lic character, and the person who would ke, p
it secret must have a very p-mr appetite mat
little relish for social and intellectual enjoy
ment. A supper was furnished at the Cony
House by the Masonic fraternity of the citv,
at d more than one hundred members of tl e
gentle brotherhood sat at the board. Tint
supper was prepared bv the C onv Brother-,
and furnished at a liberal discount from usual
rates. It was gotten up in a style that clearly
demonstrated that the proprietors of this new
and popular public lmu-e know how to "keep
n hotel.” The tables were spread with great
taste and liberality. Ample justice was done
to the good things with which they were la
den. After the music of the knives and forks
had subsided and the physical wants of the
brethren had been well attended to, the \V. M.
of Bethlehem Lodge. Mr. F. A. Crowell, whn
deserves much credit for the perfectness of all
the arrangements, called the company to order
and introduced John S. Sayward, Esq., of
Boxford, Mass., formerly of Augusta, who
opened the intellectual part of the entertain
ment by a true Masonic speech, in which lie
dwelt upon the sublime lessons taught by the
Masonic emblems. He was followed in brief
remarks by Mr. Moody, AA*. Al. of Temple
Lodge, AA'inthrop. l)r. Geo. E. Briekett, Mr.
Cobb of Bath, Hon. AA’arren Johnson, Mr.
Webb and Dr. Cochrane of AA'inthrop, Dr.
AV. L. Thompson. Howard Owen, Dr. J. \A\
Toward, and liev. Dr. Kicker. The exercises
closed with the singing of "Old Turner.”
The whole affair was one of unalloyed pleas
ure, and will form a blight spot in the lives uf
all who were present.

The Trial of Prince Ronapnrte.
In the trial of Prince Bonaparte to-day the
fir^t witness examined was M. Villere, who
came into court between two gens (Pannes.
He said the letter sent by Prince Bonaparte
was not a provocation but an insult. Being
asked why he wore arms he replied that he
lived in a district outside of the city, and go
ing home late at night was obliged to carry
arms for self protection. He incidentally
blamed the government for its delay in the
arrest of the Prince after shooting, whereupon
he was reprimanded hy the President of the
court. The Prince arose excitedly and de
clared that Villere and Groustet had both
sworn that they would yet shoot him. This
the witness denied. The audience seemed
inclined to 1»i>s the Prince. The Procurer
General insisted that witness he removed to
■ prison, and the lawyers for prosecution de
manded that he should remain and give the
remainder of his testimony. Several servants
i of the accused and some of his personal
trier.d •: were examined, the latter damaging
the defence by displaying too much zeal,
i Paul l)e Carsaynaic was next examined and
was insulting in manner towards the lawyers
for prosecution. All the witnesses tor de
fence testified that they noticed a contusion
on hi* cheek after the affray, hut the pliy.*i
ci.in who called in tit the time to examine the
■ Prinep’s face swore he saw no signs of ton
; tussion.
He was immediately confronted hy other
witnesses, I tit re peated hi* statement*. The
audience was much excited hy the contradic
tion. The d t nee attimptid to prove yiat
tiie Prince did not *hoot until Fonville had
drawn hi* pistol, and that lie also had been
: against tin* 1 t • ot the P inoo before the fatal
I affair, hut the i \ idence fail- d to * u*tai i either
! allegation. It is expected that Rochefort will
1 t e examined to-morrow.
