Rev. Mr. Emerson has closed his labors with the Baptist church in Brunswick. A pig has been taught to play ‘-Root hog or die,” on a hand organ. The spring style of bonnets is described as “something like a sunflower on the peak of a haystack.” Win. K. Morris, Esq., was duly qualified and inaugurated as Judge of the Municipal Court of Portland, on Saturday. The store and contents of puller & Jordan at West Falmouth, was burned Sunday night. Valued at <Jt>,400; insured We desire to remind our readers that Rev. G. P'. Stearns, of the New Church faith, will lecture this evening in the Unitarian church ; a’so to-morrow evening. Go and hear him. We regret to learn that Mr. A. II. S. Davis of the Farmington’Chronicle, has had anoth er attack of hemorrhage of the lungs. He has been advised bv his physicians to relin quish his present business, and probably will be compelled to. The following town officers -were elected in Vienna: Moderator, Nath’l Graves; Clerk, Henry Dowst; Selectmen, Josiah Morrill. Willis P. Brown. Jacob S. Wood; Treasurer, Nathaniel Graves; S.

Some doubts were expressed as to her brother being old enough to attend school. “Oh, yes!" said Lillie; “he is six, and mother says, if he hadn’t been sick, he would have been as much as seven or eight r The amount of public lnnds within the lim its of this State now remaining unsold, foots up 246.844 acres; the amount of lands con tracted to settlers is 126,844 acres ; the Htnount of timber lands is 152,427 acres ; the extent of townships on which the timber and lumber is reserved until 1884, comprises 242,336 acres. The land agency of our State is still an important office, requiring great assiduity and labor. Among the employees in the Journal Office is a gentleman whose long term of service fully entitles him to a brevet rank. In 1829 he entered the employ of Thomas J. Copeland, publisher ofthe Somerset Journal at N'orridge wock. Since entering upon his apprentice ship he has been, almost without interruption, engaged in the art of printing. He was fur twenty-five consecutive years in the office of the Hallowell Gazettee. According to all ap pearances he is good for another forty-one years of application to his art. The recent storm forces the subject ot a system of drainage for the streets of the city, | upon the attention of many of our citizens who live on the flat strips of land at the foot j of the hill bounding the limits of the city i proper on the west and north. These people are sensibly affected by spring floods and rains. Their collars arc not of sufficient ca pacity to accommodate the immense flow from the hills, and when they seek for drains they are not to be found. The suggestions ot the Mayor, in his excellent annual address, in j regard to this matter, should be heeded, and if nothing more than a survey can now be made, that would be a consolation to those who are annually up to their ears in water. Prof. Chadbourne, in a note to the editor of the Brunswick Telegraph, mentions the change* in Bowdoin College : ‘•You speak of changes in the college; but are you aware of the great change that has taken place since I was first connected with it, eleven years ago? Not a single man is now in the Medical Faculty that was there then, and not one in the whole College Fac ulty excepting Prof. Packard, and he has en tirely changed his relations to the college. The Treasurer, Mr. McKcen, has also passed away. If we consider the past stability of the college for forty years before, this sudden change seems surprising.” I Our Correspondent, ‘•Minos.” at Pittsfield, writes under date of March 2G. as follows ; The ladies of the Free Baptist Society of this place held a levee for the benefit of their pastor, A. L. Gerrish, in Lnncey's Hall, Mon day evening, March 21. The exercises con sisted of tableaux, music, speeches, &c. Re marks were made by l)r. J. C. Manson, and others. Notwithstanding the storm and badness of the travelling, the hall was full, and the whole affair passed off to the evident enjoyment and satisfaction of all. dhe net profits amounted to some over one hundred tnd thirty dollars. On Wednesday evening lie Good Templars held a levee at the same dace. The exercises comprised a domestic 'tree, “Don't count your chickens before I hey are hatched," followed by music, tab leaux. and an Antiquarian supper. Remarks Ire re made by Kev. A. L. Gerrish and Profs. B. Files and L. G. Jordan. About seveu Iv dollars profits were realized. The middle >icr of the bridge of the Belfast K.

In the afternoon, a meeting of the stockholders of the Portland & Kennebec Railroad was held, agreeably to notice of the Secretary, at which a large amount of stock was represented, and it was unanimous ly voted to authorize their Directors to per forin nil the acts necessary, and proper to carry into effect the various propositions con tained in the votes of the stockholders of the Somerset & Kennebec road, and as above stated.

Washington, March 21*. The San Domingo Treaty The San Domingo Treaty was discussed this afternoon. Mr. Xye advocated its ratification on the ground of commercial necessity, and argued that the time would come w hen all the islands adjacent to our country would he under the protection of the I’nitod States, and they would occupy towards the country a position similar to that of sentinels to an army. He called upon the Senate not to repudiate the Monroe doctrine, hut to consecrate them selves anew to its enforcement. Senator Patterson followed, taking strong grounds against the ratification. He main tained that it was at this time contrary to the interests of the country to acquire any tropi cal territory whatever, the sentiment gener ally living against such proceeding. Mr. Caserly has the ttoor and w ill argue against the treaty when it shall again he taken up. The time for the exchange of the ratification expired to-day, hut in the absence of official information the friends of the treaty say they have no doubt that an extension of time could be procured from San Domingo. The Senate took no action whatever concerning the tresty. Tetter From Adjutant General Town send Announcing the Death of Gen. George II. Thomas. Head-Quarters Adjutant Generals' Of fice. It has become the painful duty nf the Gen eral to announce to the army the death of one of our most exalted Generals. Geo. 11. Thomas, who expired last evening at half past seven, in San Francisco, California. There is no need to turn to the archives to search for his history, for it is recorded in al most every page during the past ten years. But his class mates and comrades owe him a personal tribute in which lie knows every member of the army shares. Gen. Thomas entered the military academy in the class ol 1 S3'!, and graduated in 1340, and was com missioned as 2d Lieut, in tile 3d Artillery, and sent to Florida. He served w ith his reg iment continually until Dee. 14, 1350, when he became Captain, having particularly dis tinguished himself at Monterey and Buena Vista. Mexico. On the 12th of May. 1353. he was appointed to the 2d Cavalry as Major and served with that regiment continuously until he became its Colonel on the 3d of May 1331. The great civil w ar found him at his post true ami firm, amidst the terrible pressure he encountered by reason of his birthplace, Virginia. President Lincoln commissioned him as Brigadier General of volunteers, and sent him to Kentucky; there too his services were constant and eminent in the highest de gree. He won the first battle in the West at Mill Spring. Kentucky, arid from first to last without a day or hours intermission, was at his post of duty, rising steadily and inevita ble through all the grades, to the one he held as'a Major General of the regular army at the time of tiis death. At Shiloh, Corinth. Perrysvillc, Stone Hirer, Chic.imauga. Chat tanooga. Atlanta and Nashville, he fulfilled the proudest hopes of his most ardent friends. Gen. Geo. II. Thomas stood in the very front rank of our war generals. The General has known Gen. Thomas intimately since they sat as boys on the same bench, and the quality in him winch he holds up tor the ad miration and examination of the young, is his complete and entire devotion to duty. Though sent to Florida. Mexico. Texas and Arizona, when his duty there was absolute banishment, lie went cheerfully and never asked the per sonal favor of exemption or leave of absence. In battle he never wavered; firm and of lull faith in his cause, he knew it would prevail; and he never sought advancement of rank or honor at the expense of any one. Whatever he earned of these were his own, and ... disputed his right. The very impersonation of honesty, integrity and honor, he w ill stand to us as a beau ideal of a soldier and a gentle man. Though he leaves no child to bear his name, the old army of the Cumberland, num bered by tens of thousands called him father, and will weep for him in tears of manly grief. His wile, who cheered him w ith her messages of love in the darkest hours of the war, will mourn him in sadness, chastened by the sym pathy of the whole country. The last sad rites due him as a man and a soldier will be paid at Troy. N. 5 on the ar rival of his remains. #nd the friends of his family and his comrades who can he present are aii invited tiiere to share in the obsequies. At all military posts and stations Hags will be placed at half mast, and fifteen guns fired on the day after the receipt of this order, and the usual badges of mourning will be worn for 30 days. By command of Gen. Sherman, E. D. Townsend, Adj't Gen. Confession of a Murderer. Tbot, N. Y., March 29. K. A. Alexander, the son-in-law ofVander leyden who was murdered oh Wednesday, this afternoon wrote a full confession of his crime and committed suicide by blowing his brains out with a shot gun. The confession states that he had meditated the murder for a year, and that about four weeks ago lie in tended to do it but the presence of a negro frustrated his design. He says the Lord prompted him to do it, and that he tried to es cape hut could not, and thinks that he did no wrong. He asks pardon of his wife and hopes to meet her in Heaven. He says he had no accomplices. FROM PORTLAND. Pohti.awf>, Me., March 29. Charles Clark, formerly IT. S. Marshal, re ceived the much contested appointment of city Marshal to-gight. Hosca I. Robinson was elected cily Clerk. The flag on the city government building has been at half mast to-day, in mourning for Gen. Thomas. PROM SAN FRANCISCO. San Francisco, March 20. Death of General Thomas. The death of General Thomaa has cast a gloom over the entire community. The de partment hend quarters arc drapped in mourn ing, and the flags on the shipping, fortifica tions and principal buildings are at half mast, and the courts have adjourned. The Gener al's body is to be embalmed and sent to Troy, N. Y.. on Thursday next. Col. Willard and an escort of ten men have been detailed to ac company the remains to their destination. FROM BOSTON. Boston, March 20. Supposed Wreck. A lot of wreck stuff has worked ashore at Monomet. Cape Cod, which leads to the sup position that some emigrant vessel may have foundered in the bay during the gale of Sun day night. It consists of fifteen IkmI sacks and pillows, meat and vegetables, short pieces of candles and a cabin door. The sacks were made of bagging with wide stripes, and stuffed with straw , and variously marked “ W. G.,” “I. N.,” “ M. Delany,” and “Jenkins & Co.’ Nuicide. Mary K. Jones, 18 years old, shot herself to-day in the Florence House, Howard St., was taken to the hospital and will probably die. Disappointed love was the alleged cause. Charged with Murder.

During a lecture yesterday Dr. Fardien was hissed and insulted on account of the deposi tum made by him at Touro in favor of Prince Bonaparte.

THE SILENT SEWING MACHINE! AS A FAMILY ASSISTANT, The Willcox & Gibbs Sewing Machine! Will ho fonml to excel all others. The ease with which it runs, its ready adaptation to all kinds of work without delay or hesitation, its quiet fidelity, its Superior Strength and Durability of Work, are points that astonish and delight all who make its acquaintance. Ladies who are unfa miliar with this Machine, do not yet know the full blessing and comfort of a Sewing Ma chine in the family, though they may possess many others and think they are satisfied. In proof of this assertion is the significant fact, That its strongest advocates and most enthusiastic admirers are always found among those who have used and are most familiar with other leading machines. From the thousands of testimonials from all parts of the country, wc select the following from the city of Augusta : AUGUSTA, March, 1870.
