Early riser* can now attend a free open-air concert, given by the robbins. The regular meeting of Bethlehem lodge of Masons will be held this evening. A little boy ate mutches and is now where matches are said to be made, but where there is no brimstone. We understand that the ice jam started from Gardiner on Saturday and is moving down the river. Gov. Chamberlain’s proclamation for fast day is the shortest, neatest and most express iveofany issued by the governor of any State where the time has been designated. V'. 1). Pinkham, K.-q., lias raised a derrick on bis lot between Grove and Green streets, preparatory to putting in the foundation to a dwelling bouse which he will erect on the lot this summer. • A cross-eyed person who wants a left-handed saw, sends the following order to a hardware store in this city : "Fleas have the thread cut left-handed, so that the saw will keap tite.” That spelling is a little "tite” on the educa tional advantages of the town where the gen tleman resides. Mr. O. Williamson, late Wyman & William son, and Mr. Charles Greenwood, late of Far mington, have purchased the stock of stoves and tinware, of M. G. Brooks. They will continue the business as heretofore. Both are known as gentlemen of integrity and will share the public confidence. The following officers were elected at the annual tow n meeting of the town of Uieliniond for the year INTO: Cant. Franklin Iloudlctte, William 11. Stuart and Samuel Brown, Se 1 ctmen, Assessors and Overseers of the l'oor; Carlton Iloudlctte, Treasurer; William 11. Stuart, Town Clerk; Itev. Wm. C. Curtis, S. S. Committee, liaised for schools $3.i00. Another portion of the Kennebec dam was carried awpy sometime during Thursday night, injuring the structure more than the carrying away of the first portion during j the great freshet. Probably the section that ! has just been removed was weakened by the first lreshet. The water above the dam lias fillen abont three feet, leaving the canals ! nearly empty. The Masquerade Surprise Party is the in stitution of the season at Richmond. About fifty of the citizens of that town and immediate vicinity, in costume met at the house of Isaac A. Merriman, on Wednesday evening last, carrying refreshments with them, and made merry until the small hours. The removal | of the masks disclosed that the company was composed of the elite of that and adjoining towns. A gay time was the universal verdict. Oupt. Nathaniel llohin-on. oneof the oldest ■ if not the very oldest resident of Augusta, died on Saturday morning, at the advanced age of 1)1 years. Captain Robinson lias lived for many years upon the farm where Ite died, was a man of the strirtest integrity, bearing a character above reproach, with a generous heart in which there was apparently no guile, and lie naturally drew towards him many true friends and made no enemies. The funeral services will take place this afternoon at two o’clock, at the Unitarian church, to be con- j ducted by Rev. Wm. A. Drew. At a meeting of tile Haydn Association, held in this city on last Friday evening, the following officers were elected for the ensuing year: President—Charles Milliken ; Vice Presi dent—diaries Ji. Johnson; Executive Com mittee—Charles Milliken, George E. Weeks, Daniel I). Scwall; Conductor—M. C. Milli ken; Pianist—Miss 11. S. Patterson; Secre tary and Treasurer—J. E. Robinson. This association was organized for the mutual im provement of its members, and tor the pur- ' pose of fully developing the musical talent in this city. They have met during the past winter for practice, and it is their intention before long to give a grand concert, w hich we hope will be liberally patronized. We are disposed to give the w riter of the following touching appeal “to the powers that be," a hearing in our columns on a sub ject that the lady petitioner deems of vital importance: To the lion. Mayor and members of the City Council: Wanteb—all llH‘ able-bodied nun compos ing the municipal officers of Augusta, to walk in procession through Orchard strict from Wintlirop to (irecti streets, in said city, any day after 10 A. M., until the first week in May, or if the spring be backward two or throe weeks longer. The condition of the side- 1 walk on Orchard street cannot wi ll be ex pressed by any one word. "Muddy" is alto gether too tame and doesn't begin to cover it. To say the least it is not creditable to the city to let the walks remain from year to year in suelt a state, that they are nearly impassable for six or seven weeks every spring. People ex pect the roads to he had while the frost is coming out of the grounds, hut to our finite judgment, there scents no reason why the sidewalks should not he something better than dirt. If a resident of Orchard street goes out in the morning before the ground thaws, lie must either remain out until it freezes again at night, or literally wade to get hack again. If one could have his choice don’t you think he would prefer to “sink or swim,” if either course be necessary, in some thing la tter than mud ? We have hoped continually for a change—a better sidewalk and a more complete drainage; all we wanted w.as a simple necessity, pro tection from sinking through to China. To our patience and long-suffering we have added prayer and supplication to those high in au thority. Thrice have our city fathers been ap proached on this very subject Once a petition was signed by the ladies and presented to the council praying that, as they had borne so much discomfort with so little grumbling, they might he heard then, and that a concrete walk might be laid the length of the street. Tltis was in the days of the democracy of 1801). Evidently the doctrine of Women’s Mights was not in favor, for the document was forgotten. Now I appeal to the members of the city government: are we asking for a luxury or a necessity, when we ask for a concrete walk on this street ? It would seem to be needed here, if anywhere. Directly at the foot of the hill' #vT>’ get the full force of the miniature torrents of melted snow which rush down the sides with the first warm days of early spring, and there being no decent drainage to carry it away, there the water stands until the ground thaws so it can escape that way, or until a midsummer sun will dry it. Men who pay taxes on property, should at least ho accommodated hy havingdecent side walks passing such property, and a sidewalk, with mud from eight to ten inches deep, is very far from passable. Were there no rem edy, we could utter no complaint, but it seems slightly unjust that improvements are neg lected here, where the need is so palpable. One who lives on Orchard Si kilt. Mr. Joursai. : Will you be good enough to inform the public, why. at this muddy sea son. tile crossings on our principal streets, cannot he kept clear of mud ? One man, al ready in the employ of the city, cmpl iycd per haps for other purposes, might spend one or two hours of his time in clearing the crossings. It is too had to allow such a state ot things to exist longer. Our business as well as our comfort demands this reform. J.
