The most experienced gardeners say that it is better to spade than to plow gardens, al though more expensive. Adams lias some new varieties of pickles at ! his popular Meat Market that are selling like j hot cakes. ----- *• The “tide in the affairs of men” does not refer to the white neck tics that have been fashionable here for the past few days. The Portland & Kennebec liailroad Com- . pany have recently purchased for their road some 3000 excellent cedar sleepers, of Mr. William Harvey of this city, who procured them in Cannda. The men who were injured on the railroad bridge have recovered frum their injuries and ^ returned to their several avocations, w ith the exception of one who was struck upon one of his shoulders, and he will be able to return to | labor in a few days. llev. C. C. Mason, the able and aecont- ! [dialled pastor of the Methodist church in Skowhegan, has by his efforts obtained funds sufficient to pay one half the debt resting on the society, ami is now engaged in collecting for the other half. Gov. Coburn recently pre- I sented him wish 6100 cash, to be used for the good object. There was exhibited yesterday in our streets a (lend turtle of monstrous proportions, taken from “Jimmie’s pond,” near Hallowcll, a few days since. It is evidently an “old stager," and is probably the one that drove a gentle man from his boat last summer, who found it dangoruus navigating in that pond. The tur tle is fish-shaped and weighs 32 pounds. It was killed by the dexterous use of a crow-bar. The A. & \V. Sprague Manufacturing Co. received yesterday over the r. & K. 11. II., two new improved Turbine water wheels. They are of the Collins Patent and were man ufactured at Norwich, Conn. They measured ten feet in diameter, and both weighed over 25,000 lbs. One is to he used for the purpose of running the old mill, and the other the new milt when it is completed. There will be services in the Granite Church to-morrow, morning, afternoon and evening. Sermon in the morning by Rev. Mr. Luce of New York, in the afternoon by Rev. Mr. Wetherbee of Portland, and in the evening by Rev. I)r. Haven of Boston. The seats will be free all the day and the public generally are invited. Sunday morning pray er-meeting in the Vestry, commencing pro cisely at ten o’clock. Operations have commenced at the dam. The A. & W. Sprague Manufacturing Com pany commenced yesterday to raise the wood en centres which fell in during the late fresh et and which were tn be used in the construc tion of the stone arches, and have also com menced removing the debris left by the freshet, preparatory to resuming work upon their improvements of the water power in this city which was suspended during the freshet. The Trustees of the State Agricultural So ciety will decide at their meeting to be held in this city on Monday evening, where the show next fall will be held. It is generally conceded that this city will bo the place, as the , city government, through its appropriate com mittee, will offer satisfactory inducements. After the time and place is decided upAn, then will be the time for farmers, mechanics, ar 'tisans and artists, to prepare to make the fair j and show a grand success. The Farmer office is to be removed to the north side of the Smith brick block, opposite I Partridge’s, which is being fitted up with all ! the conveniences of which they are deprived , in t heir present quarters. The press room is to ; be in the basement, counting room and ed- j itorial rooms on the first floor, and composing and job offices above, an elevator connecting 1 the different stories. Business is finding its 1 way down towards tin; “south end.” We are glad to become nearer neighbors to our gen- j ial friends of the Farmer. When the concert by the Mendelssohn Club, on Thursday evening, was about half through, j a ministerial looking gentleman accompanied j by two ladies appeared at the door of the hall and were surprised to find it guarded by a door keeper and thnt an admission fee was charged. While counting out bis money, ho remarked that it was something unusual, he thought, to charge an admission fee for attending a [ prayer meeting! Turning his eves to the i atage, the company of musicians there oon i vinced him that he had got into the wrong t meeting-house, and he retired to make anoth i er attempt to find the Methodist conference .< meeting. I Tlic I’. & K. B. It. came near losing another (bridge yesterday, the danger of which was averted in the following manner: A Mr. McLcllan of Brunswick, canto down on the Grand Trunk traiu, intending to take the I*. • & K. train at Yarmouth, but the Grand Trunk [ being late, he was forced to await the arrival aof the next train. While strolling about lie t observed smoke arising from the Railroad Bridge over Royal's river; on drawing nearer , to ascertain the cause, he discovered the , bridge to be on fire. He had a shawl with ,)hiin which he hurredly saturated with water from the river and extinguished the fire be fore it did any damage. The bridge is about 4 sixty feet long. t To-morrow our city pulpits are to be sup plied with clergymen from the Methodist Con iferenee.

The Ilishop then called on the Secretary to call the roll, to which about three quarters of the members responded. Rev. Mr. Ricker, 1). I)., of the Baptist | Church was then introduced. The Trustees reported the conference enti tled to draw on the amount subject to draft, 8307.30. The draft was ordered for purpos es, as follows : Domestic missions, 818 ; needy preachers and widows, £171.32; to be paid to East Maine Conference, £88. The following class were elected to Dea con's orders: J. II. Moores, J. H. Strout, J. E. lSudden and J. H. Pillsbury. To these, standing before the nltar, the charge of the Bishop was earnest and kind, dwelling on the responsibility of the trust conferred upon them. lie questioned them as to their reli gious experience, dwelling upon the fact of its being ot greater importance in this respect than in other callings, inasmuch as the care of souls is of greater importance than aught else. Be fully engaged, Brethren, in your work. Do not turn aside to become agents for insurance companies. He dwelt upon the blood of Christ, as the main support as he asked them the disciplinary question, “Have you faith in Christ?” You may be sent to take cities, Brethren, but they will not be I outside of Christ's kingdom. Wherever j you may go, you w ill not go beyond the ex tent of the purchase of Jesus’s blood. “Are ; you going on to perfection ?” “Do you ex pect to become perfect in this life?" “Are ' you growing for the same?” “Are you re solved to devote yourself wholly to his work?" Eloquently the Bishop dwelt on the mani festations of God in his works and the proof of human depravity from the perversity ot men in failing to love God. lie did not believe in the omniscience of evil spirits, but they possess much knowledge, where they see a man whose heart is not kept in per fect peace. And much more good he can certainly do whose heart is fully stayed on God. Whatever may be your talents, you may have still greater success if you are en tirely given up to Christ. The spirit of kindness in the pulpit was commended. Never say a sharp thing to hurt any one's feelings. Breach Christ. Leave your little self one side. Do you know the rules of so ciety ? Do you keep them? Do you con stantly attend the sacrament ? Have you read the form of discipline? Are you willing to conform to it? The need of uniformity in maintaining church discipline was illustrated by reference to military usages. The Bishop remarked that a certain kind of stripe wasquite essential upon a soldier's pan taloons, and during the past few years he should have had much preference as to color; blue would have suited hint much better than gray. (Applause.) Have you ocvnsidcred the rules of a preacher? (See Discipline, § 2, pp. Gt-GG.) Will you keep them for con science sake? Are you determined to employ all vour time in the work of God? Brethren you ought to study; the fathers studied, yet j some have accused them of not being students. Study while you are young. Nervous energy diminishes as you grow old; therefore make up the time now by improving it in study. A young man sometimes descends from the i pulpit and some friend tells him he has j preached a great sermon, and sometimes he is foolish enough to believe it. (Laughter.) We pat a child on the head for some preco cious saying, but if the child should not im prove in ten years he would excite contempt. The church invests in young preachers as ' men do in corner lots, not for what they are now, but for what they will be ten years hence. Will you endeavor not to speak too long or too loud? Just as I have learned how to live I has e to die. There is nothing better for weak lungs then to travel a circuit. Take care of your lungs. Keep the blood to the surface. •Keep warm. Talk from below, not from the throat. Let the throat perform only such functions as the lingering of a flute. Let the force, like the organ come from the deep bellows beneath. Bending over a manuscript is bad. Change is good, as is secured by the freedom of ex temporaneous preaching. Every day's exer cise is favorable. If you cannot hit the gold en mean of talking high or low, risk talking too high as you may reach some precious soul outside the door. (Applause.) Methodist preachers are the only ones who surpass others in this direction. “Will you diligent ly instruct the children in every place? Will you visit from house to house? Will you re commend fasting both by precept and ex ample?” There is perhaps nothing in fasting that has virtue in itself, and yet there is some thing valuable in it or Jesus would nut have recommended it. It gave power over evil spirits. The question was proposed by Bro. Hatch if any of the class used tobacco. Bro. Lufkin asked how long they expected to be seeking full salvation. These questions were accept ably answered. Bro. Foster of N. Y. Conference was intro duced, as also Bro. Merrill, Bible Agent for Maine.

The f>t>2d hymn was sung, first three j verses, part weak, part strong, at direction of the leader—4th verse ail lioitinn. Sermon by A. 11. Sylvester of Farmington, from Eph. ltd chap., 6th verse, “That the I Gentiles are heirs of the same inheritance , and members of the same body," &e. The j Jew. the speaker remarked, looked upon the Jewish system as the only hope of salvation in the world. But this was a mistake of the Jew, and there was not only another system, but that oilier, the Christian one. is indeed j the only valid one. The Jew was jealous eon- j renting the immunities of his’ system, but the Christian on the other hand desires all to share with him. And the more deeply does he feel himself to be a disciple of Jesus, the more intensely does he share the desire of the Master when weeping over Jerusalem. This was the spirit of the Apostles. Manifestations of this spirit are «cen in the present Missionary labor. Love tor Christ and lack of Missionary spirit i- incongruous, and yet some men professing Christianity stay away from church when the caus* of Missions was to lie presented. “My Father worketh hitherto and I must work." said Christ, and his example is set for the church. Shall the servant be above his Master? The apostles did honor to that noble example. As Wesley said, “The world is niv parish," so there is needed the greatest latitude of faitli and works. Though the work be great yet Chri-t has said “I am with you alway.” In the first three centuries great triumphs occurred, but though similar triumphs have now again been resumed, yet a thousand times more such triumphs are needed. Man is the agency for the conversion of the world. Christianity civilizes the heathen. It leads the van; it christianizes first, civil izes afterward. Does man need a sacrifice ? Hero is a Lamb. Does he inquire for prom ises? 'This book is filled with them. It has tamed savages, extinguished the altar fires of idolatry, and affiliated the races- But the end is not yet. God is pointing to victories j yet in advance. Sang. “From Greenland's ley mountains,” Ac. Rev. S. S. Cummings of "The Little Wan derers' Home,” Boston, addressed the congre gation in favor of that institution. There is a preacher in the N. E. Conference that was six years in a poor house, when a child, in this State. Look after the poor houses and let us know if there are children of sound mind and sound body, and we will take them off your hands and find good ehristriau homes for them. Get your people to consecrate their pocket-book to the Lord. We have been at work for five years, and we have taken care of 2.600 poor children; 100 of them from Maine. We have put 1500 into Christian families in the State of Illinois. llro. Toles, the Superintendent, addressed a church lately of which 16 were members whom lie had several years before carried out there and introduced them to good homes. E. Robinson, Vice President of Missionary Society, called the members to order. A. Ladd offered prayer. Bros.

Prayer was offered by Kcv. b. Allen, 1). I)., I and scripture lesson read. 624th hymn was , sung. llev. 11. B. Ridgeway, from X. Y. Confer ence, preached from Rom. viii, 28. "\Ve know that all things work together for good to them that love God." The first thought suggested was in reference to work. There is no rest. Second, in reference to harmony, for there is nothing at random. 8d, this uni versal working is not only harmonious, but there is a purpose, and that is in reference to God’s people. The church is not a creature of chance; it was a plan of the Almighty to have for himself a people. Rational life must be tributary to the spiritual. The philosophy of Christianity can be expressed in a single word, "Love.” Love in the heart, under the power of the Holy Ghost, gives the believer a new life. The mighty throbs of earth are nil combining to help us on, if we love God, but to hurl us down if we do not love him. It is not so essential to puzzle our minds about the creeds of ‘‘Credos,” but this is better, rather, to love God. Adjourned to Saturday morning. ----------- I ittatrirti. In Portland, tth iuat..

The Legislative, Executive ami Judicial Appropriation bills were taken up, and in the discussion of an amendment to dis- ' continue the publication ot laws in newspapers, j Mr. Morton said, that rather than abolish the system, he would provide for newspaper pub- . lieation in every congressional district. This might be expensive, but if it was important to enact laws, it was equally important to give the people the means of finding out what they were. Mr. Anthony said that the publication of the laws in newspapers, was, in his judgment an entire waste of the public money. It cost the government about $100,000 per year, and the publication was not completed in most of the papers, until lorn: after the adjournment1 of Congress, and often not until the next ses sion. The Secretary of State, and Committee on . Printing agreed with him. The amendment after further discussion was agreed to. and Mr. Anthony having given notice of the amendment to abolish the blue book now' published bv the government, for gratui tous distribution, the Senate apjourned until Monday. FROM NEW YORK. Trial of McFarland, the Murderor of Albert D. Richardson. >si;\v York, May G. The entire day in the McFarland trial has been occupied by Mr. Graham’s argument , for the defence, which will be concluded on Monday. The announcement this morning of the J withdrawal of Judge Davis from the prose cution. created much surprise on ail sides, and indignation among the friends of Mr. Kichardson, who claim that political influence and outside pressure combined to impress this result. Judge Davis had his closing arg ument nearly completed when he decided last night to withdraw from the ease. Mr. Graham's plea for the prisoner has been almost entirely devoted thus far, to the legal and technical questions involved in the ease, the chief inportance being given to the insanity. In that of the defence, many au thorities. precedents, and official reports of previous cases were cited, by which Mr Graham maintained that the principals which would justify the acquittal of the prisoner had been fully established. The counsel en tered into discussion of the different varieties ; of insanity, claiming that if the prisoner was found to he insane at the instant of the shoot ing only, he was not morally responsible, and : must be acquitted. Mr. Graham cited the Cole and Hiscock case as the exact counterpart of this. The i Sickles and Keves case, and paying high com pliment to Edwin M. Stanton, one of the} counsel in that case; and the Rogers ease . from Mass., in which Chief Justice Shaw , charged the jurv, that the prisoner must pos- : sessand be in full exercise of his memory, intelligence, reason and will, to be morally accountable for his nets. Mr. Graham said that if McFarland meant to kill Kichardson. and was sane, he could not 1 have chosen a more- inauspicious place than the Tribune office, where the odds were all against him. The counsel thus far in the argument has | not commented on the relations between ; Kichardson and McFarland and the alleged \ conspiracy to separate McFarland and his j wife, and other prominent points of Spencer’s opinion speech. The case will be resumed ' Monday. Arrival of flen. Thos. Jordan, fom’r in C hief of the Cuban Insurgents. Gen. Thus. Jordan. Commander in Chief of the Cuban Insurgent army, arrived in the Moro Castle from Havana this morning, and proceeded immediately to the residence of Senor Morals Leman, Cuban Minister to this country, to deliver important despatches. G»n. Jordan is accompanied by Col. Agra mento the brother of Gen. Agrumento. Col. Costello. Major Bitaneount and other officers of the Cuban army. After a visit to Washington he will return to Cuba. His stay in this country, which lias reference to procuring munitions of war, will be brief. lien. Jordan reports the Cuban cause in better condition than at any previous stage, and the success of the revolution depends only on time. The Cuban army now numbers about 10.00U men. well equipped and supplied with artillery. The Marritan howitzers were sufficient tor the present needs of the service. The season is now in favor of tile revolution ists. giving them what they most need—time for organization and collection of supplies. There are not fifty foreigners in the Cuban army. Gen. .Ionian says the Cubans are in no way discouraged at the prospect, and that the Spaniards have lost their opportunity for putting down the revolution. Gen. Jordan left Cuba in a small sloop, and when three days out was chased by five steam gunboats, but a storm arising be succeeded in making Jiis escape. Reception. The Produce Exchange will give a reception to Senator Hardenburg next Monday, in ac knowledgment of his efforts for the Free Ca nal system in this State. Only 70 licenses have been issued thus far, under the new excise law. John G. Whittier is now the guest of Col. Jullian Allen, in Brooklyn, and will have a reception by the Union League next week. Methodist Conference. Memphis. Tcnn., May 6.
