A 17 OrsTA,
MONDAY MORNINO, June 9, 1870,
The officers appointed to take the ninth
census are now engaged in their work
and must complete it this month. They
will call upon each family before the
month closes to obtain .Mich information |
a* illeyr are required to g' t. It is simply
taking ttye account of the population, busi
ness,, Anil othei facts, for the purpose of
Informatiou in relation to -hegovernment,
tlie penph* and their affair*. In order that'
the census officers may do their work
properly, it will be necessary for head* of
families and others to ro-opevate with them
in the e 'lection of the necessary facts.
There:. eighteen inquiries to iw made
in re*]>'i : to every male, and sixteen in
respect to each female. These are :—
1. Name of each person in full.
2. Aire at the last birthday, and number
of years, if over one year old; but if under'
one yi ar. ihc number of month* must be giv- 1
en. in fractions, as 1-12, 7-12, &c.
3. Sex. ' !
4. Color. White, black, mulatto. Indian.
5. Profession or occupation of males or
6. Value of person.1 estate owned.
7. Value of real , state owned.
8. Birthplace. If in this country, give1
the State; if foreign giv, the country.
9. 10. Birthplace- of parents, father and
mother ag above—a* John Uenfar, father
England, mother Wales.
11. If born within the year, state the1
month—as June, July. April.
12. If married within the year, state the
13. Whether he or she has attended school
within tho year.
14 If he or she cannot read, state the
15. If lie or she cannot write, state it.
16. If deaf and dumb, blind, insane or
idiotic, state this fact.
The above inquiries are to be considered
and answered in respect to both males
and females. Two others are specified in
respect to males alone :—
17. Is he x citizen ot the United States, 21
years old, native or naturalized?
18. If a citizen, has his right to vote been
denied orabrldgid for any cause, except for
rebellion or crime ?
These constitute the tn-st schedule, and
relate to those who were living on the first
day of the month.
The second schedule includes eleven in
quiries in respect hi those who died in the
year ending with the 31st of May last, as
follows: 1, name; 2, age; 3, sex; 4,
color; 5, single, married, or widowed; 6,
birthplace; 7, and 8, birthplace of father
and mother; 9, month of death; 10 occu
pation; 11, disease, or cause of death.
These are to be answered in the same
way as similar inquires in respect to the
living. It is necessary for the purposes of
the government and fulfilment of the terms
of the law, that each should be answered
in respect to every person to whom it is
applicable. It is important both for the
people and the nation that the answers
should be fall and accurate.
There are difficulties in the. way of tab- i
ing the census which may b( obviated by j
a tittle pains on the part of the public, j
•‘The marshal's appearance at the door,”
,,ys the Boston Advertiser, “is the first in
timation that the family have of the spe
cific purpose of his mission. He has a
large field to survey. The law requires
tiiat he shall not hav e more than twenty
thousand people to enumerate and de
scribe. ffe may have, and probably in
mo--' n -s has, a smaller number to visit
in course of the month: certainly he will
have enough assigned to him to occupy all
his time. He must work diligently,
thrr h all the business hours, from morn
ing ip night. Ho must move Ktpidfy from
house to house, and bo detained as little
time as possible for his isf<nutation. He
first asks to see the head of t!>, family, the
husband or father; if he is absent, he in
quires for the wife : a he be not at home,
then lor an older chil l; and if these arc
not to be found, he takes the next best wit
ness, a yeungur chi 1 a servant; always
looking ibr Hm best . uhority then in or
near the hop-e.
Now, few m-n are to be found at their j
homes during the business hours of the day.
They are away in their fields, in thir shops,.
stores, offices, or wherever the chances of
work or the interests of employers may call i
them. Many housewives are also absent,
on business, or visiting, or are inaccessible
through sickness. The older children are
subject to the same necessities of absence.
The chance is very small that the marshal
can get his information from the best au
thority ; very frequently he must fail to get ^
it from tiie second best, and often he must
depend on a child or domestic, who is some
times a stranger and unacquainted with
the personal condition of the members of
the family.
There Is yet a way by which this difficul
ty may he very easily obviated. Let each
family take a copy of all the personal in
quiries which we have here quoted from
the marshal's t schedule. Let them care
fully Consider these and consult together
in regard to the answers. Write the name
of each member, parents, children, board
ers, domestic-, lodgers, and under each
one's name the answer to each inquiry in
respect to him or her. Let this statement
be signed by the head of the family or the
mult responsible member who is at home,
and directed to the marshal and left in the
house to be given to him when he may
call. By this means, the condition of the
family and of ail its members will certain
ly ho n qn&etitesi 1»y ttt best Intelligence
aftar ihK'.ful consideration, instead ol the
.liability of the second rate, or chances
of the worst, or mere conjecture.

The famous chief of the Sioux Indians,
with some twenty other chiefs, will meet
1 ‘resident Grant to-day and have a “talk
about Indian affairs. We hope thev will
not find, as they have on too many pre
vious occasions, that such interviews are
nothing but talk. Let the government see
that its treaties are kept, and the red men
not ruthlessly deprived of their rights,
and we should not be troubled with re
ports of Indian wars and barbarities. The
Omaha Herald says :
Red t 'lond is now. and has been for more
than twenty years, the Head Chief of the
Sioux Nation. lie ( s are all the others) is
of the Ogalnlla tribe, and has a remarkable
history, lie is 53 years old. and has been
engaged in s7 battles, in which he has receiv
ed a great many wnultfls, none of them, how
ever, of a very serious nature. These battles
have been with the Pawnees, Snakes, Black
Feet. L'U s, Crows, and Omaha*. In a battle
which occurred 33 years ago. when he was
one of the youngest of the braves, he was en
gaged with a party of 125 warriors ot his;
tribe, only 25 of whom escaped death. He
was wounded twice, and so distinguished him
self for bravery that lie was made a chief, as
a rew ard for his’ gallantry and prowess. From '
that time he rapidly rose in rank, until he
obtained the eminent position w hich he holds .
to-day. He his look* d upon by his people j
as one of the greatest warriors that ever,
wielded the death-dealing tomahawk, while ;
in the council • his sagac ity and eloquence :
have gained for him not only the admiration {
and respect, hut the implicit obedience, of all j
his subjects. j
Red Dog U the next chief in rank to Red
Cloud, and erne who present* a much more |
striking appearance at first sight. He, too. j
has distinguished himself in many battles, and 1
wields a powerful influence among his tribe. |
Red Shirt is the head Chief of the W bite j
Sash hand, consisting of 3*X> braves. He is j
27 years old, has been wounded twice in bat- J
ties, ami is said to be one of the most daring j
of bis fellows. Long Wolf is also a chief of j
the same l and, tnd carries three or four ugly- j
looking scars as tokens of his prowess. Black ,
Hawk is also a prominent chief, whose record |
n* a brave warrior is second to none of his
companion- except tlu great Red (’loud. He
has been w unded in battle three times. The
above are the most prominent of the chiefs.
All of them, however, have made their mark
in the unwritten wars of the savages, and
have, by deeds at which most white men
would shrink from terror, earned the honors
I which their nation has conferred upon them.
| John Richards, whose name has been con
I netted with most of the Indian outrages for j
the past low months, anil who has been termed
the “renegade half-breed.” is with the party.
He is well known in Omaha, having resided
there for several months, something more
than a year ago. He is 27 years of age. and
is only-quarter Indian blood. It is claimed
that he is entirely guiltless of the charges
which have been made against him, and it is
through his influence that lied Cloud and hislol
lowcrs were induced to enter upon the mission
of peace to the National Capital. Richards is
looked upon by the Indians as an extraordina
ry man, and his influence among them, for
good or evil, is conceded to lie second only
to that of their great Chief. He has been out
lawed eight months, and now goes under the
protection of his tribe to the scat of Govern
ment. What will be done in his ease will be
developed at the close of the coming confer
ence. He is charged with the murder ot a
corporal about eight mouths ago. He is a
man of considerable intelligence, speaking
the Sioux language with great fluency, and
has more than an ordinary common school
The message of President Grant on the
Dominican treaty says “the acquisition
of St. Domingo is an adherence the
Monroe doctrine. It is a measure of na
tional protection; it is asserting our just
claim to a controlling influence over the
great commercial traflie soon to flow from
I East to West by v.ay of the Isthmus of
I Darien: it is to buildup our merchant ma
1 line ; it is to furnish new markets for the
; products of our farms, shops and manu
i factories; it is to make slavery insupporta
; blc in Cuba and Porto Uico at once, and
j ultima! so in llrazil; it is to settle the
| unhappy condition of Cuba and end an ex
| terminating conflict; it is to provide hon
I est means of paying our honest debts with
[ out overtaxing the people ; it is to/umish
j our citizens with the necessaries of every
! day life at cheaper rates than ever before,
i and it is, in fine, a rapid stride .towards
1 that greatness which the intelligence, in
dustry and enterprise of the citizens of the
United States entitle this country to assume
among nations.”

Hampshire represents the financial affairs

| During the year pa- 3357,587,85 of the
: State debt has been paid, avingthe whole |
debt of the State at the close of the year
#2,779,291,98. The governor recom
mends that tiie State tax for the coming
year be reduced 32W,U00. He advises a
thorough survey of the water power of the
Slate and the adoption of measures to pro
mote its use for manufacturing purposes.
He expresses his satisfaction with the na
tional administration and the adoption of
the Fifteenth Amendment, which he thinks
justifies the hope that the day may not be
distant when the last traces of the rebel
lion shall be expunged from the laws of
the land, and removed from the minds of
the people.
The massacre of Jews in Koumelia is
one ol those occurrences that makes the
world shudder with horror. We read of
such tilings almost with incredulity, so re
pugnant and foreign are they to our civil

by President Grant as our consul general
at Bucharest is a measure well taken.
The reported interview of the Bangor

The Sherman Steel Works, are situated on
tiie left bank of the Penobscot River, about
one-half mile above the thriving village of
Bucksport. The Bangor Whig says the man
ufactory consists of two wooden buildings,
1U0 by 50 feet each, standing at right angles
to each other. The motive power is furnished
by a 15 liorse-power engine, to which steam
is supplied from three boilers. The furnaces
vent their smoke and gas through a chimney 106
1-2 feet in height. Water is supplied from a
| tank of 20.000 gallons capacity, which is fed
through an iron pipe from ‘Smelt Brook,'a dis
tance of 1200 feet. The capacity of the works
| for making steel is three tons per day. We
1 cannot, ot course, make public the method of
! maufuaeturo, but eau give a brief list of some
of the means employed. The steel is made
from scrap iron—not east—and is cut into
pieces of suitable size by immense shears,
! compared witli which a guillotine would be a
toy. The smelting is done in twelve furnaces,
and the steel is run into ingots of fifty
pounds each, of which there are four, and
drawn out by a steam hammer having a stroke
of one thousand pounds. The gross weight
of the hammer is fifteen thousand pounds. A
heavy stamper is used in crushing fire
1 brick with which the crucibles or smelting
pots are constructed. Mr. Miller of Waldo
boro', is general Superintendent and Agent,
and 11- F. Farnhatn, Superintendent of the
works. The following is a list of the head
workmen: Melter, David Priest, Puller, Rob
ertson, Hammerer, Orman Jefl'eoek; Brnke
te oiler, Edwin Smith; Chief Engineer, Rufus
At Mattox harbor. Southport, preparations
are going on for the making of sea-wceil
guano. The Times says that the steam ma
chinery was made by Moulton & Son ot Bath,
and the necessary patent machinery is fast
being put in order for the rapid working tip
of this valuable dressing for tillage purposes.
The seaweed Is (li st pressed through rollers,
and then cut in a sort of hay cutter, dried,^
and afterwards put in hags and shipped to he ,
mixed with other manuring materials, and is
then sold to the trade. Great quantities of
this compost are used in this country and on
the continent.
The Whig says De Malay Commandery of
Skowhegan. have engaged rooms at the Frank- |
lin House, Bangor, for the approaching Ma- j
sonic Dedication and Knights Templar lie- |
view Tuesday and Wednesday, June 28th and ‘
2'Jtli. Si. Alban Commandery of Knights
Templar of Portland, h ive voted to attend
the Dedication provided fitly Knights will
agree to turn out. It may now safely he
staled that both of the Portland Commander- |
ies will be present. No doubt there will be a 1
gieat crow d of Masons present the 28th.
Capt. Charles Boutelle, of Brunswick, died
very suddenly from heart disease Thursday !
forenoon at his residence in that place.
A London dispatch to the New York 1
Tribune gives an account of the race for ;
the Derby Stakes at Epsom. The excite-!
nient over the race extended into all 1
grades of society. The race was won by !
kingcraft, owned by Lord Falmouth,
whose winnings were more than §go,(HK».
The Tribune says:
On the course, the rAullitnde was enormous.
Along’tlie entire line of the straight half
mile there was a row of carriages lour and
live deep on both sides olthc track. Eaeli one
one of these had to pay a guinea for the priv
ilege. The lull was covered with the booths,
.stables and gipsies’ caravans. The Grand
Stand was packed, its large open roof ap
pearing to be a black mass of human be
ings. All the private boxes and stalls
were occupied, and by two o’clock there
was not a seat to he obtained. All classes
ol society were represented. The Prince
and Princess of Wales were accompanied
by Lord Carrington, Col. Seesdale and a
brilliant suite. Among the notables pres
ent may be mentioned Prince Leopold, the
King of Belgium: the Dukes of Hamilton j
and Beaufort, Lord Falmouth, Lord Sef
ton. Lord Stamford, Marquis of Anglesey,
Prir.ee Soli/.kolV. Sir Charles Mordauni,
and the Karl nt Eglinton ; also many Mem

The track was clean'd by mounted police
men with much difficulty, but not tar.
from the appointed time the horses were
brought out. The excitement ol tile
spectator- was wrought up to its highest
pitch by the appearance of the 13 horses
entered for the race. Macgregor, the
favorite, wa- tremendously cheered, but
both Camel and Kingcraft had many ad
mirers. After one or two attempts, the
flag fell, and the lot wont off in a cluster.
The lirst mile being over the hill, the nia- j
jority of the spectators could not see the
earlier part of the race, hut as the horses
rounded the turn and the colors of the
favorite were seen in the front, a shout
arose from the multitude of “the favorite
wins.” Their hopes were doomed to dis
appointment ; he began to tlag, and at the
distance post was passed by Muster and
Kingcraft, the former holding a slight ad
vantage to the stand, where Kingcraft
shot out and galloped home, winning by
four lengths in front ot Palmerston who
passed Muster about 100 yards from the
winning-post, and defeated him by a
neck, only for second honors. Wlieii the
winner's number was hoisted, the cheer
ing was extraordinary, the victory of
such a thorough sportsman as Lord Fal
mouth giving great satisfaction. Tom
French, the rider of the winner, alsocame
in tor a share of the applause. Surprise
was manifested at the failure of Macgregor
and the partisans of Mr. Merry were
totally at a loss how to account for his de
feat. " Fordham, his jockey, was deeply
chagrined. ft seems as if this famous
horseman could never win a Derby. 1 Ic*
winner was ridden in a white jacket,
the second in a red, and the third in a
blue, the tricolor thus holdingprominenee.
The net value of the slakes is i,‘i,ooo, and
as Load Falmouth never bets, this is the
sum of his winnings. Among those who
congratulated him on hi- victory was the
Prince of Wales.
The winning horse Kingcraft is described
as follows:
lie is a bright bay eolt, rather under 13 i
hands ayd and 3 inches in bight, and very
handsome all over. It would he difficult |
to find fault with his contour, the only pos
sible exception being that lie is somewhat
light of bone. He was bred by lus pres
ent owner, Lord Falmouth, and made bis
first run as a two-year-old in the Triennial:
Stakes, at Ascot, last June. The long '
odds of 9 to g were laid on him : but he j
suffered defeat by a head from Mabonla. j
Ilis next appearance was in the Chester
field Stilkcs, at Newmarket, which he
won easily by two lengths, beating a large !
field, lie then scored six victories in suc
cession—the Ham stakes at Goodwood,
beating Sunlighi; the Convivial Stakes at
York, beating LaColonne and Nobleman;
the Buckingham Stakes at Newmarket,
beating Nonnanby ; the Triennial Produce
Stakes at the same meeting, beating six
others; and he walked over for a Pro
duce Stake at Newmarket, 2d, October.
At the same meeting he was placed
third for the Middle Park Plate, won by
Frivolity, and occupied that position in the
Criterion Stakes won by Hester, to whom
lie was conceding 7 lb.' His first appear
ance this year was in the 2,<MH) Guineas
Stake, when he came in fourth, and bis
second in the Derby Stakes, as above, lie |
is engaged in the Prince of Wales Stakes
at Ascot, ‘J2 subscribers; the St. Ledger
Stake's at Doncaster, 2:11 subscribers ; the
Doncaster Stakes at the same meeting,
and several minor S’akes at Newmarket.
The jockey who rode him, French, has
never before had the winning mount in
the Derby, although lie has been very near
on two occasions. These were in lH(>,r>,
when he rode Clirismns Carol, second to
Ciadiateur, and in 1.H66, when Lord Lyon
only defeated Savernake, whom lie was
riding, by a short bead. Lord Falmouth
lias never before succeeded in gaining the
“Blue Iiibbou of the Turf,” his best win
previous to this being the Oaks, in 18(>:1,
with Queen Bertha.
