Warren, April 19th, 1870. Dear Jocbnal :—A short time ago 1 saw | in your paper a list of fifty-seven persons in i the town of Thomaston, who had att lined to I the age of seventy years and upwards, and i it « as remarked that the number w.\ large for a town of 3000 inhabitants, but in the ad joining town of Warren, with a population one-third less than that of Thomaston. there are one hundred and twenty, who have ar-j rivi d to the age of three-score and ten years. Now at the same rate, Thomaston, instead of having hut fifty-seven over Seventy years' of age, it should have one hundred and eighty. Of the one hundred ami twenty over - -venty years, twenty-eight have passed their four score years. The oldest person in town, Mrs. Elizabeth Hotl'ses, is ninety-six, and still hale and hearty. Mrs. Mary Page diedyesterd v aged ninety-five. Mrs. Jcrathniie! Leach is ninety one, and Mrs. John Roakcs, ninety. Mr. | Charles Mink is over ninety, but hi** exact age is not known to the writer. Six have died within the past six months, their ages varying from seventy to ninety-five. This remarkable longevity is to be attributed first to the healthy location of the town, ai d sec ondly to the temperate habits of the people One in every twenty of its inhabitant" have attained to the age of seventy years or up wards. and we challenge any town in t! State to beat this. Z. 4 Fraud. Waterville, April 22 !, 1S70. Dear Jocrsal:—The following far ts may not be devoid of interest to many of your readers, and perhaps some may learn from them that they are not the only victims of the parties here named. The facts are as fol lows : Some time last January, a man ailing himself Henry Whitney, engaged lvoird ot a Mrs. F , >;f (hie place, for his wife and child. He claimed to be from Michigan: said he did not know just when his wife would come, hut expected her at once. In due time she came j was regarded a quiet -ort ot a lade, whose husband was a hard-working man. He claimed to be an agent for E. C. Allen & Co., and to be canvassing for "The Literary Compaaion.” He also state d that he was a Life Insurance agent. He visited his wife a few times ami stated then that he was at work for the M. C. R. IT at Kendall's Mills. Afier a w hile he began, as he said, to canvass, and then he and his brother made oc casional visits to the woman. She told the folks that her maiden name was Taylor, and that her folks lived in Stetson. While be was gone she once said that she got a letter from him and that he was at her father’s. II • soon returned from there, and with his brother: started for Farmington to canvass and work ! at Life Insurance. On Thursday the brother returned, said he was siek of canvassi. g, and I was going West. r ridav the woman complained of a head ache, and immediately after tea she " nt to | her room. Her room-mate went to r lire at ten. but finding the door fa*t decided not to dis turb the sick woman, so came hack and slept with some member of the family. In the morning Mrs Whitney did not appear, the j door was tried, found fast and finally burst open. Alas! the poor sick woman and her little infant had taken all their baggage ami gone through the window, neglecting to leave the sum of twontv-fivc dollars which was due for board. It seems by report that some seventy subscribers were obtained for toe pa per at Kendall’s Mills and a number here. Wlf.le at Newport, report says that he insured one Mrs. Fisher who made at his request some three or four payments. It came out afterwards that Mrs. Whitney told her room mate a Miss 1)-that there would be a friend to sec her that evening so she would feign headache and retire early, leaving her (Miss D.) to see that tlie folks did not visit her room. Her chagrin on hearing that she had helped Mrs. W to retire and leave her board bill unsettled may be imagined. . Joseph. New invoice of feather dusters “Ht a low figure” now opening at Kinsman's.

Washington, April 23. House. Mr. Schenek of Ohio, reported back the %enate amendment to the Income Tax bill, and moved a non-concurrencc, stat ing. however, that he would not ask for a Committee of Conference. The Senate had sent back the original joint resolution, which had passed the House w ith a good deal ol unanimity, with an amendment by way ot sub- j Htilute which provided for the collection of a | tax on some dividends and kept up the tax on salaries, but b t everything else go. The Committee on Ways and Means was ol the opinion that patch-work and discrimina tion was not lair: that the income tax ought to either stand or to fall as entire with such amendments as Congress may choose to make, ! therefore the Committee recommend non- 1 concurrence in the Senate amendment. Mr. Schofield ol l*a. inquired what would be the effect if the bill was laid on the table and no other passed. Mr. Schenek replied that the whole subject of the Income tax would be left in its present cloudy and uncertain state, and in reply to a question from Mr. Archer of Md., sai<i that the Cmmissioner of Internal Revenue had de cided to go on with the collection of the tax ing on monthly reports and on salaries, and to claim the* income tax for ls7«) next spring; but he (Schenek) did not know any means by which the Commissioner could accomplish it. Mr. Lynch of Me. inquired whether the wuole matter could not he settled by a bill abolishing the Income tax. Mr- Schenek staled that the w hole subject! would come before the House in the General I Revenue bill, which was the next special or der in the Com. ol'the Whole. Mr. Wood of N. Y. thought that this was ! the appropriate time to take some action for the entire and absolute repeal of the income 1 lax. If Congress desired to carry out th** universal public opinion, the sooner it got rid i of this unjust tax the better. Mr. Schenek wan not at all surprised that J the gentleman from New York should us ; such wholesale and sweeping assertions in reference to the tax. All over the country they had through the newspapers, by letters [ and by various means, and perhaps by Con- ! gress, tried to make them believe the income tax was a most atrocious, infamous, unequal, unfair law. The whole number ot persons who paid the , income tax was 272..-43. and of this number over 107,WO paid $20 or less, and if exemp tion was raised to two thousand that class would bo cut off. The second class, who paid between $20 and $50 number O'J.lfil; the third class that paid between $50 and $100 number 41.100; the fourth class that paid be tween $100 and $200 numbered over 45.000. and those who paid over $2w number 0,404. After further discussion, in which Messrs. Vooihees. Coburn and others favored the eon- ' tinuanee of the tax, the House refused to lay the bill on the table and then refused to con cur in the Senate substitute, leaving the Sen ate to ask for a Committee of Conference if it chooses. ; The Speaker announced the appointment of Messrs. Garfield. Allison and Cox a Con ference Committee on the Census bill. Mr. Dawes ot Mass, appealed to the House! in behalf of his colleague, Mr. Butler, who had taken his family home on account ot ill- j ness, and asked that like the other absentees ' last night he be charged SI, and that he have 1 a leave of absence. Mr. Strong presented a petition of the citi- , zens of Hartford for the abrogation of legacy and succession taxi s. At 4 o’clock the House adjourned. FROM WASHINGTON. Washington, April 23. Only four more witnesses will probably be examined in tin* Upshur Couit Marshal, among w hom are Vice- Admiral Porter. The Court will probably adjourn about the middle of next week. The discussiou of the Funding bill by the. Com. on Ways and Means to-day showed that there w as adversity of views among the mem bers regarding the provisions. No action was taken. The dcp't of State will soon give to the ro pul lie ali the official proceedings and corres pondence on the subject of the death of An son Burlingame, including the lotttrs of Sec retary Kish expressive of the regret of the gov't at the event. Rev. Dr. Boynton, the first President of the Howard 1'Diversity, testified before the How ard investigation C ommittee yesterday that he lutd nothing whatever to do with the charges against Gen.

FOREIGN NEWS BY CABLE. ■ London, April 2d. The Times Dints that tl^e Grecian govern ment is responsible for the capture of foreign ers so near its capital, especially when these foreigners are members of a foreign lega tion. Several communications have appeared in the English papers lately, written by Ameri cans, correcting misstatements of the Edin burg Keview, touching the ballot in the 1 United States. Sugar brokers complain bitterly of the ruinous i fleets of the sudden remission of tiie sugar duties. Many holders bought their stoc ks when current pi ices were 32 or 40 shillings ptr 100 weight, for No. 2 dutch standard.
