A IT G V 8 T A.\ Tuesday Morning* Jk^bch Ms 1870. POX A PA K 7 A AV<J< I HA J>. Wo are not .<t#prised at the intelligence that the Acquittal of Prince Pierre Bona jwte of the assassination of Victor Noir creates wonder and astonishment wherev er it is known. The deed was so openly committed, the guilt of the accused so ap parent, that there was no doubt in the' public mind what the verdict ought to be. The result reached is therefore considered a violation of justice, and the power which sways the destiny of France is responsible1 for the outrage. It asserts in substance not only that “The King can do no wrong,’’ but that his relations are above the courts and their lives sacred whatever crimes they may commit. Had Pierre Bonaparte been but a common man instead of being the cousin of the Emperor, his life would have paid the forfeit for the murder which he perpetrated. The deed was without prov ocation, was savage. There were no cir cumstances connected with it to call for lenity. It was done in his own rooms, up on an unarmed man, engaged in what duellists hold a propermission, though men holding to the “code" may think other wise. The bearing of the Prince during the trial was in keeping with the act for which he was tried and the character which he has manifested through life, lie interrupted the witnesses, bullied the court and lawyers, and displayed more of the rage and recklessnos of a madman or wild beast than the appearance of a reasonable being on trial for life in the nineteenth century. I’m Pierre Bonaparte is the cousin of the Emperor ami hence he is safe. The quar rel in which the murder of Victor Noir originated was one in belmlf of the Em peror, at least it was one against Roche fort, the political oponent of the reigning head of France, and thus there was a political reason as well as that of consan guinity to prevent justice being done to the offender. Everywhere it will be un derstood by all intelligent and unpreju diced men that this trial was a farce, a mockery of justice, such as used to dis grace the world in feudal times and which it was supposed we had outlived and should never see again. The effect of it will be to bring into still greater contempt in tlic public mind the authority which kings claim to rule by God-given right. No king, kaiser, or court can set the murderer free for kinship or partisanship without proclaiming by the act that justice has nothing to do with such a step. The blood of Victor Noir is stronger to-day than the li\ing Emperor and Jiis brutal minion. Franco is iu chains. Liberty there is but a phantom. Napoleon holds the power of life and death in his hands through the fear of his armed thousands. Rochefort dared to speak against his op pressions, and here is the endhis friend murdered, the murderer acquitted, and Rochefort himself a prisoner, while Na poleon still reigns. What with the exhibition of outraging justice in this case by kingly despotism, and the itevelojHimonts of kingly licontionsness and depravity in tkeMordaunt divorce af fair, w.liat can the defenders of kings and emperors have to say for their theory of “divine right ?” If these men rule by any thing short of Satanic influence, of tie! right which the craven fears or delusions of their followers give them, we are not able to Se$ it. If the acquittal of l’ierro Bona parte shall make the thrones of despots tremble and lead to the enlargement of the privileges and rights^)!' the humbler classes, the blood of Victor Noir will have some recompense. Thatthc agitation oc casioned by it mnst-be violent there can be no doubt, and less doubt that the sup pressed indignation in Franco will out measure by far what appears upon the surface. BR COLLECTOR BAILEY. The promptness with which the govern ment has dealt with Collector Bailey, the New York defaulting officer of the rev enue, is the host evidence of the straight forward manner in which the administra tion conducts itself towards its own un worthy officers. Hailey held the place under Andrew Johnson without difficulty, hut when Secretary Boutwell came to have the care of the Treasury, and to become familiar with the officials that surrounded him, he distrusted Hailey, and a^ soon as the Fullerton trial was over commenced the investigation which exposed Hailey’s crime and drove him to seek safety in flight. Hailey kept up the appearance of being a model officer, by seeming to deal strictly with those classes whom he had to look after, while at the same time he was tak ing their money for unlawful favors and robbing the government. A New York correspondent of the Washington Chroni-! cle says: Bailey wan always excessively ambitious, , and not at all particular in the means he em ployed to reach and possess power. The late I seizures were made without warrant of law, nor the shadow of equity to suttain his inva sive actions anil unsubstantial allegations. The ex-collector’s object was to force or fright en his victims into some sort of compromise favorable to his schemes and personal aggran dizement, and at the same time keep up the appearance of being a pattern for all revenue collectors to copy, llailey ever kept a watch ful eye on the moieties, and generally pocket ed the lion’s share of those little by-play pro ceedings, while he adroitly promulgated the supposition that any appeal Pi Commissioner Delano would be useless—that he was secure in the confidence of his superiors, and that his views would be implicitly sustained by the \\ ashington authorities in charge of such Gov ernment matters. But New 1 ork liquor nien, especially when wronged, are rurt easily subdued or black mailed, and smarting under t|lt grievous tils, they sought redress at the luuuls of .Secretary ldoutwelf With hi* single, straight-forward mind and quick discerning jofigment, the solid systematic King of Finance decided on a speedy investigation of the difficult 1jui1u*-s» that ' should either confirm certain damaging charges against the collector or exonerate him from all Manic in the stringent applications of his legal functions. Solicitor Banfield was dispatched to this city last we. h by the bel'elory of the Treasury to ! take the personal supervision of the case. A ! vferv little plain questioning of Bailey by So licitor Banff Id ami Smith convinced them that something was rotten in Denmark. Aware of his self-implicated situation and evi dent inability to dear himself from his half implied culpability in a most damaging abuse of his office and position: the Solicitor was yet far from suspecting that Bailey was so deeply entangled as to resort to that last des perate refuge of the hopelessly guilty—flight; but this was the miserable man’s only chance of escaping the punishment he had richly earned, lie did not scruple to take immedi ate advantage of the little time left him; and deserting home, wife, and children, he igno mitiously fled the scene of his crime. The manner in which the frauds have been so long anil so successfully earrried ou was by a very simple and easily-conducted method indeed. Bailey constantly made col lections, which ho assiduously appropriated to his individual benefit. These collections were returned to Washington ns uncollected; and, being received outside of his regular receiving clerk and cashier, they were of Course not entered upon the books of the office as collected assessments. In this way they were carried over from month to month, and the fraud perfectly safe from detection unless the money should chance to lie de manded of the tax-payer the second time, who, with hi- receipt of acknowledged pay ment, would have speedily brought affairs to a crisis. But this was cleverly obviated by alternately changing the name of the supposed delinquent and substituting that of others, thus avoiding a collision, and life, rally robbing I’eter to pay l'uul with most consumate care and tact. In this manner the discovery was avoided, day after day, until Bailey become hampered and cramped beyond further con cealment. At a Inti- hour last Saturday night. t met Deputy Collector Childs was arrested by Col. Whitley, charged with being directly implicat ed with Ilailey. For some months their busi ness connections have been of the most inti mate nature, and aside from this are near relatives. Childs confessed that tie bail aideil ! and abetted Bailey throughout his career of crime and treachery, and admitted the fact of his having assisted him in his evil doing. The defalcations first originated in the 4th dis t. t by the mysterious di-appearance of some fift thousand dollars, which Bailey managed to cover up by srnnsferring funds for the pur pose from the 32d district, and in this unique way meeting the deficiency incurred of one transgression by creating another—conceal ing the first evil by perpetrating a second: and assisted by his confidential deputy. Childs, lie made rapid strides in the downward road of crime to the final end that he has reached in a single desperate leap that carried him be ! yond even the poor pity of those who were I once his friends, and byneath the asper ' siotis of those who were always his enemies. The prat tice ot sueli a deception has limits, and cannot always be maintained. Mr. Bai ley's continued practice of attempting, and tiiratime carrying out, a well-laid plan of double dealing, and persistent transfusion of one person’s fraud with that of another, pro duced a complicated state of peril to him. from which it became impossible to extricate himself with honor, and every effort he made to free himself only served to plunge him deeper and deeper in the whirlpool of dark disgrace, which has at last engulfed him for ever, as regards the respect and confidence of upright men. The calamitous result of his unlawful deeds proves that they laid with in themselves his future punishment, and this disastrous ending of what was undoubtedly a fair beginning stands as a warning, and points a useful moral to those who, elevated to en viable positions of trust, are tempted to im molate manhood, truth, and rectitude in their eagerness to attain speedy wealth, and com mand the fashionable follies and extrava gances of the day. It has been extensively reported and published that Bailey fied in comparative poverty, and left his family nl most destitute. But the statement is incor rect, for it has been discovered that he owns a spleudid farm in New Hampshire, valued at something like ninety thousand dollars. GENERAL NEWS. New Hampshire has now eight daily papers. The women in Bristol, Tcnn., take their knitting to church. Twelve thousand bushels of berries were shipped from Vineland last season. The largest quantity in one day, 1,000 bushels. Tremont Temple, Boston, which is the property of the Baptists in that city, is to he fitted lip as a denominational house. A public school was dismissed in Elkliorn, Wis.. one day last week, that the children might attend a murder trial. An old bachelor is described as a traveler on life’s journey who lias entirely failed to make the proper connections. Five hundred mulct have been sold in Al bany, Gn., since the first of November last, at an average of $225 per head. Whether Boston shall be annexed to Charleston is to be decided by the votes of the people of the two cities. The New Albany (lnd.,) Commercial boasts of a baby weighing sixteen and one-half pounds, and adds that it has not been a good year for babies either. Tho Charleston Conference of the African Methodist lately resolved that if anv member of the Conference be found eating in the pul pit ho shall he fined. lit solutions have been introduced into the Nova Beotia Legislature recommending the re-establishment «f the reciprocity treaty. The Viceroy of Egypt, to meet the re quirements of his guests at the late fetes, pur chased not fewer than twelve grand pianos from the house of Krard, in Paris. After witnessing the completion of its hu manitarian work, the Female Anti-Slavery Society of Philadelphia declares its existence no longer necessary. According to the Galilois, the Emperor of the French is now one of the largest landed proprietors in Spain, lie has been buying land in that country for the last ten years. An "Uhl Settlors’ Society”has been formed at Kacine, Wis. The constitution provides that any person who has lived in the state thirty years, and is of good moral character, may become a member. A “leading homopathie physician in Jack sonville, 111., has sued an allopath for libel, laying damages at $5,000, which is not a small dose. The allopath culled him "a charlatan, ehartu-dlspenaer, necromancer, Ne ro of sanctity &e.” A Methodist Episcopal church has been erected in Fultohoa, in Bulgaria, bordering on the Black Sea. It numbers twenty-one members, and is the first Methodist church ever built in Kussia. The sea-serpent has again made his appear ance. this time “very like a whale,” however. A. Morth Carolina skipper says lie saw the ani mal while on a voyage from Jacmd. lie de scribe* it as a species of whale sixty feet long and twenty-four feet across the hack, which was oval shaped. In every city and large town in the State of Indiana the colored people are prepared to eelehr&tc the adoption of the Fifteenth Amend ment as soon as the expected proclamation sha A New York editor thus introduced some verses : “The poem published this week was composed by an esteemed friend who has lain in his grave for many years for his own amuse ment.” Professor Liebig has received the Albert ! medal from the Society of Arts. Trade and Manufacture of Great Britain. This is con considered to be a great distinction, as only one such medal is awarded annually, and this is the first that has been given to a German. Two men in Chambers county, Ala . have been trying to swap wives for some time, but a difference as to who should pay for a year’s feed for a cow which one of the m n was to give the other as “boot" has as yet prevented a consummation of the trade. The Concord (N. IE) Patriot continues its war upon the leading Democrats in that State who sought to sell out the party previous to the late election, and asserts that they are still secretly at w ork in the same line, designing to form a new party, of which they shall be leaders. An impression is daily gaining ground that the steamier City of Boston, it lost, was de stroyed by tire. This theory is supported by the fact that her inefficient machinery had to he forced to unreasonably quick action in or* | der to get up the requisite degree of speed. ' thereby causing dangerous friction. The Albany Argus relates that w hen a cer tain railroad was first opened a rural member came down to the depot, closely examined every thing, and, after inquiring how much they charged to go to the next station and re turn. said: “Well, I guess I’ll come down to morrow and ride a bit on your road, hut if 1 don’t come on time you needn't wait.” The following note was left by Benjamin A. | Smith, w ho commited suicide at the St. James I Hotel in Boston on Friday evening : “Home less, wifeless, childless, penniless, hopeless, right arm nearly useless, almost friendless, I close my career on earth. Some kind hand w ill place me quietly at rest at Mount Auburn. I feel that my mission is ended and that the Almighty w ill pardon me for thus early laying off the great burden of life.” A young and sprightly widow once appear ed at a masquerade at Bath, England, with a paper pinned to her bosom bearing the follow - ing lines : ‘•To l*e I t oil lease for the term of my life, I. >ylvia .1- in the shape of a wife; I am young, though not iiainl.-ome, good-natured, though thin— For further particulars, pray inquire within. WASITING TON NK H'S. Member.' from Connecticut have gone j home to take part in the election. Franklin Chase, United States Consul General at Tampico, is to be removed from that position. General Ames will be admitted to the ; Senate whenever a vote on his credentials can be reached, and the opponents of the Bingham amendment to the Georgiif bill claim that they are sufficiently strong to defeat it in the Senate. The chances for the annexation of San Domingo are said to be small. It is claimed j that two thirds of the Senate will vote against j it. There is talk in Washington of trying to annex San Domingo by a joint resolution of the two Houses, in ease the Senate rejects the treaty before it. The former method would require only a majority of each House. The Secretary of the Navy has been compel led to cut down expenses in every direction in order to keep within the appropriation. In the Navy Yard at Washington, the number of workmen and mechanics lias been reduced in all branches, and quite a number of men have thus been thrown out of employment. The reduction will shortly follow in all the yards. Orders have heed issued by the Chief of the Bureaus of Yards and Docks to reduce all expenses to the lowest possible figure. A Washington correspondent says that Sir. Sumner, in his speech on the San Domingo treaty, advocated a federation of the West India Islands under the protection of the United States when the people of those Is lands shall signify a desire for such protec tion. George Alfred Townsend in one of Ins re cent letters to the Chicago Tribune has the following : Garfield said to me, some weeks ago: “Blaine's administration of the House has been admirable, and he lias more friends to day than probably any man in the government. They are all real admirers, not time-servers.” An attempt at murder was made at Lynn on Friday by David J. Farnham upon Charles Vaughn. Vaughn was boarding at Farnham’s, and the latter suspected criminal intimacy be tween Vaughn and his wife. This led to the attempt at murder by shooting, which failed. Farnham was arrested but Vaughn failed to appear against him. and slunk away from his old quarters. Farnham is said to belong in Maine. • — - A sail accident happened in the woods at Wentworth Location on Saturday, March 5th, Mr. Nelson Fiekett fell under a load of logs and was run over, the whole load passing over him bruising him on the head and internally, and he died Thursday the 10th. He was a very industrious and worthy man, and was formerly a resident of Cape Elizabeth, where he has relatives living who will learn with sor row his sad fate. Mr. J. II. Orne, who is at the head of the order of Good Templars in the l'nited States, will spend a week in Maine in lecturing upon the subject of Temperance, immediately fol lowing the session of the Grand Lodge.

We learn from the Reporter that at a mel t ing of the Gardiner Gas Company held on 'Thursday afternoon, a dividend of six per : ci nt. was declared. It was also voted that the price of gas be reduced from $4.50 to $4.00 per thousand feet, and that new coal 1 shells be built and other improvements made about their manufactory. This reduction in price makes gas as cheap, if not cheaper than in any other city In the State, with the exception ot Portland, where it is $3.00. The town of Carmel lias purchased the Alonzo Tilton farm for a home for their pau per.'. 'Tin' price; paid was $4,000.
