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

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.

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.

These exercidbs continuing until 9 o’clock.
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.

AFTERNOON SESSION.
Missionary Meeting.—Prayer by C. F. ;
Allen. 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.

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

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.

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.

FORTY-FIRST CONGRESS.
Washington, May 0.
Senate. 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,

John G. Whittier is now the guest of Col.
Jullian Allen, in Brooklyn, and will have a
reception by the Union League next week.
