The water has at length worn an almost continuous channel through the ice between Augusta and Hallowed. There are about 25,000 tons of ice in store houses at Uttflowdl, and upwards of twenty five thousand times that amount not in store houses, awaiting tl»e opening of navigation. S. P. rimumer, Ksq., the new city clerk, is fitting up a store opposite the post office, which he intends to opt-n in a few days with a Mock ot fancy goods. The wreck of the Hnllowel! .and Chelsea bridge has been dissected, and the lumber and iron laved, by Mr. Thaddeus H. Day of HallowelL The stock of hard ware, stoves. &t\, of M. G. Brooks has been purchased by Williamson & Greenwood, who will continue the business at the old stand. We bespeak for the new firm a fair share of the public patronage. There will lx* a -great moral and religious exhibition of dissolving views at the Congre gational vestrv this evening at 7 1*2 o’clock.

M., to con sider the subject of the city rendering aid to any party or parties proposing to erect a steam-mill tor the manufacture of lumber in that city. We understand that a gentleman of experience and enterprise has submitted a proposition, and if the citizens accept it. the City will soon boast of a large steam saw mill. The new railroad bridge will not only be a durable, but a most beautiful structure. It will be painted in a highly ornamental man ner. and will be the must expensive and dura ble structure on the liue of the road, and will probably not be surpassed by any bridge in New England. Three spans will be here in ■eighty days from last Tuesday, and the two remaining spans in the course of a fortnight from the expiration of that time. Two important railroad meetings are to be held in this city to-day. At eleven o'clock in the forenoon there will be a meeting of the stockholders of the Somerset ■& Kennebec Railroad, to make such arrangements in re gard to building an iron bridge at this city, and forming a permanent connection with the Portland & Kennebec Railroad Company to lease, consolidation or otherwise, as shall he found expedient.

Mr. Stearns’ Sermon. Rev. (i. F. Stearns of the Now (. hurch. preached in the Unitarian Church on Sunday evening, on the subject of “Man a Spiritual Being,” front the text in Matthew, 7th chap ter, 16th verse, “Ye shall know them by their j fruits7 do men gathe r grape s of thorns, or figs of thistles ?” Why do men never gather , grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Because j the natural structures that hear grapes and j figs are not fitted to produce thorns or this tles. This sequence* of effects in the natural ; world is universally acknowledged. It is also so in a spiritual sense. Kvery one must j reap for himself the fruits of his labors. We ! hove the power to improve and change our purposes—to make new* hearts—to become 1 good or evil, true or false. We are now w hat our life hitherto has made us. This spiritual power is given to man alone. Because he j has freedom of choice, he is accountable for the use of that freedom. There can he no appeal from this. No man can receive more than he is capable of receiving or fitted for. It is not the mere organism of matter, the frame, the body, that makes the real man; but the human heart, the living soul. lie may be like an animal, and merely “vege tate,” or indulge bis animal passions. From a being not spiritually organized no spiritual fruits can be gathered. One receptive of spir itual love and thought will bear spiritual fruit. That man can bear these fruits proves that he is a spiritual being, and that he w ill live for ever. There is a God, and all things serve Him. This will not appear to those whose minds are spiritually closed. No one lives who denies that there is a God. It lie does not serve a true one, then he will serve a debased one, perhaps himself. There is no mind open to know that there is no God; only the mind that is closed can conceive of suc h a thing. Man can receive nothing which he does not derive from heaven, from the one source of love and thought. Man’s power to love and serve God proves the actual presence and existence of a spiritual organization with in him. That the* mind is an organization is shown by its difference in different individu als, there being scarcely two persons of the same mind. This spiritual nature of man Involves the existence of a spiritual world, in which it is to be developed, and from w hich the spiritual man receives iiis life. The nat ural tree can be made corrupt or good by grafting; man can do this to himself spirit ually. From bearing thorns and thistles we may ba engrafted into the true vine, or con tinue ever to bear thorns and thistles. Man, from the animal part of his nature, cannot change himself; hut by obtaining spiritual i help he can do so. The human soul died out, when he sought knowledge from himself, and man continued in that death until He came wln> uttered the words of the tc\t. AVc naturally liear thorns and thistles, ( util we receive the germ of life, the tree is corrupt and the fruit also. Christ did not come merely to reconcile lucit unto Hod. hut to do an actual work, to save them from their sins and bring them unto himself, liy His help we can cut otr the natural fruit and engraft the spiritual fruit. The speaker then spoke of the great reform that had taken place within the last few years, j of the increase of knowledge, the progress of i science, and the onward march of truth. Spiritual tilings are not at a stand- till, but the time is hastening when every doctrine shall he known by its fruit. He then pro ceeded briefly to define the peculiar belief of the New Church, and said that it is not a now sect which in striving fur ascendency over other sects, hut it embraces a doctrine which has eotiie down from heaven ; one that looks upon the life as well as principles. He an nounced that lie should soenk at the same place on Wednesday and Thursday i rollings on the subject of the '• Resurrection." Meeting of the (Itj Council.

Mr. Ingersoll of Illinois made an in-effec tual effort to get at the Washington & Air Line Kailroad bill, which is on the Speaker’s table. The House at half past one o'clock went into Committee ot the Whole on the tariff bill, and was addressed by Mr. Asper of Mis souri. against the high protective duties.

The following was recei' cd to-day from j Army Head (^unaters. Fort Ellis, Montana. March 23d. Ocmral 1\ 11. Sheridan, Chi cago : In answer to your telegram received on the 23d inst.. I report after having made, every effort to get the judgment of the offi cers of my command, I was satisfied that the number approximates as nearly to the exact truth as possible. The number killed at Piegan village was 173. of whom 120 were! able bodied men. and 33 women and children. One hundred and forty women and children j were afterwards captured and released- I believe every effort was made by the officers and men to save* the non-combatants, and Mich wome n and children that were killed, won accidently killed. The report pub lished in the eastern papers, is wholly ami maliciously false. It seems incredible that the false assertions of two persons, neither of whom has made any effort to inform himself in the matter, should outweigh the reports of those engaged in the fight, and who feel that they have nothing to palliate or toucicl in their conduct. All that the officers demand ol the authorities is a full and complete in vestigation of the campaign, and less than this cannot he conceded them. C. L. BAKER. | The Sun Domingo Treaty. In executive session this afternoon Senator Sclmrz made a speech against the ratification of the San Domingo treaty, based on the ground that we do not need any more south ern territory as necessary to our national in terest. and that the adoption of this measure would lead to a further absorption of foreign territory with inhabitants unfitted for republi can institutions.
