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

Tears shall follow one another
Ere thy iriends shall c«a»e to weep;

In thy long and dreamless sleep.
Thou art gone, and sadly, slowly.

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.

Tetter From Adjutant General Town
send Announcing the Death of Gen.
George II. Thomas.
Head-Quarters Adjutant Generals' Of
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

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.
Having used the Willcox A Gibbs Sewing Machine in our respective families upon
all the various kinds of work required, some of us from one to six years, others for
a shorter time, some of us also being mmiliar with tbe use of other leading machine*,
we cheerfully recommend it as a most excellent family machine. It runs easily and
quietly, is simple and easy in its management, does not get out of order, is always
ready, its work is strong and durable, and in all respects gives most entire satisfaction.

Tliis Company is purely Mutual, there being no
Stockholders to absorb any portion of its funds, its
surplus belonging w holly to its memlvers, and being
equitably apportioned among them in Annual Divi
dends, or returns of surplus premiums.
In comparison with other American Life Compa
nies. the Connecticut Mutual has conducted ita
business at a Lower Average liale of Expenses;
its Claims by Death have averaged less, in propor
tion, than those of any otherConoany having a suf
ficient extent of business to test the law of mortal
ity ; and
Its Assets have been uniformly invested at a net
rate of interest exceeding that realized by any simi
lar institution.
The necessary result of this economy in manage
ment, careful selection of lives, and highly produc
tive investments, has been that the Connecticut
Mutual has afforded Insurance to its members at a
Less Average Cost, than any other Company.
Its investments are Securely and Profitably made,
and contain NO Commuted’ Commissions,’ Fancy
Stocks. Personal Securities, nor any Imaginary or
Unrealized Assets.
Beyond doubt, the Connecticut Mutual is the
Strongest Life Insurance Company in the World;
its ratio ot Assets to Liabilities, as measured by the
New York Legal Standard, is *11111.150 per |1(KI|
and it grants all desirable forms of Insurance npon
strictly Equitable Terms, ami at the Cheapest At
tainable Rates of Cost.
