Bradley, broke out anew the other day in an assault upon the former, in Wash- j legion. Judge Fisher, who lias recently en tered upon the duties of District Attorney, * was passing toward his office, wiien Joseph H. Bradley met him, and it is alleged, after say ing. “Xoar, Sir,” or ‘ Now. then," dealt him a heavy blow with an ordinary walking stick. Mr. Bradley then closely approached Judge Fisher, when the latter threw out his foot, tripping Mr. Bradley, who fell heavi ly to the pavement, dragging Judge Fisher with him, the two rolling over together. At this juncture several parties interfered, sep arating the heiigereots and conducting them to their respective offices Judge Fisher's ear was slightly cut by the fall and his shoulder was sornew hat hurt. The police, after considarahlt difficulty ptr-uaded the crowd to disperse. Charles Fisher, having learned of the occurrence, declarred his pur pose Jo resent the assault upon his father, and started fur Mr. Bradley's office in the second story of the building at the corner, but was prevented by the crowd from entering, and after considerable persuasion by his father and friends was induced to withdraw. The crqwd at one time became so great—every one ar riving on the ground asking for particulars— that Mr. Fiaher came out and appealed to them to leave, saying that no one had been hurt and he ahoiild not attack any one. Mr. Bradley lutd meditated the settlement of the long standing difficulty with Mr. Fisher when ever the latter should leave the bench for the AUorney-sliip, and thereupon took the first opportunity that was presented since that change. TREATMENT OF INSANE MURDER ‘ ERS. The treatment of insane murderers is re ceiving a good deal of consideration at the present time, chiefly we presume on ac count of the result in the McFarland trial. Here js ft man adjudged insane by a jury, and in consequence acquitted of the crime for which he was tried, and as soon as the trial is over lie is turned loose uj*ou the community, if he be insane should he be allowed to £q at large, is tlfe question which naturally arises. Having comniit niit Usd one murder on account of his de niugcmcut, may he not commit another for the tame reason, and why should he not l>a subjected to at least as much re straint as other insane who hav e perpetra ted fto murder w violence ? Governor Alcorn, of Mississippi, in a late special mowsage to the legislature of that srat*!, disrtiMca thi- subject and recom mends that such criminals, before being arraigned for a criminal trial, He brought before a tribunal ordered for the purpose ot judging of their sanity or insanity, and if at this tribunal such criminals are deci ded to be sane persons, such a judgment shall be a bar against the plea of insanity being brought in by the defense at the criminal trial, and lie shall be recognized as sane, ami as hat ing been so at the time of the alleged murder. On the other hand, if the prisoner having committed the hom icide is adjudged as having done the deed in a fit or state of insanity, then the court -hall order him to be confined in a lunatic asylum, and in that department of the juihling assigned to tlie "dangerous in •anc,” and the length of the term of con finement shall be according as the circum stances attending the homicide shall ap pear to have been more or less aggrava ted.

The Grand Lodge of Good Templars of Minnesota held a session last week, and re solved to press the temperance question in politics. They will nominate independent candidates in many legislative districts, and endeaver to obtain the balance of power. A Joliet woman has original and pronounc ed views on female suffrage, which she ex presses in this way: “I just don't believe in these new women notions. I have raised six boys—four of I them vote now, and the others will soon be old enough. Then I will have six votes. Now these good-for-nothing women who have fooled their time away, and never raised a sin gle boy, come around and want every woman to vote for herself. 1 don’t believe in such , nonsense. I have raised my six boys, and 1 am going to have every one vote for me. Those women who go lecturing around the I country instead of raising boys, have no busi ness to vote any way.” As R proof that some knowledge of the French language is necessary in travelling abroad, the following story is told of an un lucky Englisman ill l’aris, who dill not know one word of the polite tongue : “Seating him self in a restaurant, he pointed to the first article on the bill of fare, and the polite wait er brought him a fragrant plate of beef-soup. When it was despatched be pointed to the sec ond line. The waiter brought him a vegeta ble soup. ‘Kather .more soup than 1 w ant,’ bethought; ‘but it is the Paris fashion.’ He duly pointed to the third line, and a plate of tapioca broth was brought him. Again to the fourth, and was furnished with a bowl of prep aration of arrow-root. He tried the fifth line and was supplied with some gruel kept for in valids. He determined to get as far from the soup ns possible. He pointed, in despair, to the last article on the bill of fare. The wait er politely handed him a bunch of toothpicks ! This was too much ; the Finglishman paid bis bill and left." Kather overdrawn, to be sure, but the point is well taken. Domestic TKetos. A contributor to the Oxford Register, says the town of Buckfield, if its history could be written, would present a case of extraordin ary historical interest. It was first settled some years after the close of the French and Indian war, when we were colonies of Eng land. Twenty of the soldiers in that war art now known to have been among its first set tlers. They represented the battles at the scige ami taking of Lewisburg on Cape Bre ton, under the command of Sir Wm. l’ep pcrell, of Kittery, in York county, ot Fort Wm. Henry when the horrible massacre took place by the French and Indians ; of Abraham's Plains before Quebec, under the command of Gen. Wolfe, and at Gen. Braildock's Defeat under Col. Washington, when the British officer was slain. The average age of these veterans at their death was eighty-four. At the close of the Revolutionary war it is now known that eightv-eight of these veterans set tled in the town, and nine-tenths of its present population are their descendants. Their aver age ages were eighty years. The youngest was forty-six, and the oldest one hundred and five. They represented every battle of the Revolution, from Bunker Hill to Yorktown. In the war of 1812 a full company of volun teers under the command of Capt David Bry ant was raised in the town, every member of which was the son of a Revolutionary soldier. The town was the first in the State that nomi nated Gen. Jackson for President at a public meeting of Democrats at the old Academy Hall (now Morrill & Moore’s store) on the 19th of April, 1828. L*pon polling the house vote stood 198 for Jackson and 5 for Adams. This meeting gave the first great impulse to the cause in Maine. At the Presidential election 1 on the .'Id day of November following, the vote stood 190 for Jackson, and 71 for Adams. Of those that voted for Jackson, 2.7 are now liv ing in the town, and 5 of those that voted for Adums. This shows that forty-two years since this election occurred, is a large segment in the circle of life. _ To the village of Weld an immense quantity ! of white birch and poplar wood was hauled during last winter. This wood is now being worked up by the different manufactories at the village, the most important of which is the Spool Factory, owned by Messrs. Austin & Sanborn. They use birch only in the manu facture of their spools. They have, piled up in the vieinity of their factory. 950 cords of this wood, which they will workup into spools during the year. They already have con tracts for the next two months. This wood costs SJ.ou delivered. 6>o this tactorv puts into the hands of the farmers nearly 83500 for wood alone, and that of a kind considered there almost worthless for ordinary purposes. They employ, on an average about eighteen men, running six sets of machinery with a ca pacity for turning out about "00 gross per day, in sizes varying from 15 to 500 yards each. They have a small water-power com bined with sufficient steam power. In addi tion to this factory there are several other wood manufactories in the village, using in all nearly a thousand cords of poplar and brown ash. Mr. Eliab Foster is using the latter in considerable quantities in the manu facture of butter tubs by machinery as arc also Messrs. Stoekbridge & Houghton. l’orter Ladd is engaged in making salt boxes, al though now at work upon a contract for 81, 000 worth of scythe boxes. H. W. Foster & Co. also have about 300 cords of poplar to make into salt boxes. B. It. llollins has com menced operations for manufacturing excel sior on quite an extensive scale. We glean the above from the Farmington Chronicle. Rev. I)r. Thurston of Searsport, Secretary of the Maine Missionary Society, reports that 140 of the 34‘J Congregational churches of this State receive charitable aid. The Society's expenses for the year are $15,000; receipts since last year only $4,600, less than two fifths of the appropriations already made to the churches. The Secretary earnestly ap peals to those who love the cause and desire the materia! as well as religious prosperity of Maine to aid without delay. The Oxford Democrat says the Grand Trunk Hailway Company arc working the granite quarry near Bryant l'ond this season, and arc getting out some very fine dimension stone. Eighteen men are employed, in all. M. H. Jacobs has charge of the quarrying and cutting, and J. B. Currier does the black smithing. The stone is to be used for build : ing bridges where the late '‘washouts” have occurcd along the line of the road. The Paris Hegister says Mr. S. Porter ; Stearns, one of the most extensive wool growers in Paris, wintered the past seuson two hundred sheep and lost but one. Twenty of his fat wethers were sold for mutton in the Portland market for the good round sum of two hundred dollars, prom one hundred anil eight lambs only four were lost. This ex hibits a most extraordinary case of good luck or good husbandry, or both, in shrt-p raising. The Cumberland Bone Company have leased i a portion of the Kerosene Works at Ligonia and are now moving their machinery, 4c., to their new location. The grinding ot the ma terial will be carried on all the time at their mill at Duck Pond, til! they get established in I their new place. The Bangor Whig says the Village of Vanceboro’ has grown lip like a mushroom, and bids fair to be one of the most enterpris ing and lively places in the State. A private letter from W. H. Luce, says it is hoped ere long that "we shall have the cars through to Bangor, and then we shall have a post office of our own. as we have quite a town. One year ago now, there were only two camps here; now we have on the American side, Shaw Bros.’ Tannery, a hotel, a school house 30 by GO feet with hall overhead, t w t IW) -three dwellings, two stores, and another store and several houses in process of construction. On the English side are several stores and houses, and I tegret to say eight or nine rum shops.’ We learn from the Whig that lust Tuesday morning, the barn and sheds in Etna owned by Mr. Enoch Boynton, were totally destroyed by fire, together w ith a large quantity of hay and grain. The house was saved, through the efforts of the neighbors and the employes of Hathorn's mill, who stopped work and at once came to the assistance of Mr. Boynton. The Progressive Ago says the office of Dep uty Collector at Stockton, which was discon tiued last year has been restored and L. M. Partridge has been re-appointed^)eputy Col lector at a salary of SUM. Thyre is coiuid erable Custom House business tlone at ti\t place and the place and the office is a neces sary one. The Reporter says that at the meeting of the Gardiner City Council last Wednesday even ing it was voted to give Heath Encampment, G. A. 11., of that city, the sum of $30. to aid in defraying the expenses of Memorial Day. Kcv. J. M. Payne has accepted the invitation of the Post to deliver the oration at Oak Grove Cemetery, on that day. An ecclesiastical council—with II. B. An drews as Moderator, and Rev. Mr. Record as Clerk—met at Canton on the 11th, and after examination voted to ordain Mr. D. C. Bixby, who has become the pastor of the Baptist church of Canton. Since January 1st, 1870, one thousand, nine hundred and thirty-six deeds and mortgages have been registered at the Penobscot Regis try of Deed, us we learn from the Whig. This does not include foreclosures. The Press says the Trustees of the Reform School discharged twenty-five boys from that institution on Wednesday last for good be haviour.
