Charles Jewett, Clinton, J May 27, 1870. SENATOR MORRILL ANI) INDIAN \ AFFAIRS. The coarse of Senator Morrill in rela tion to Indian affairs is dictated by noble sentiments, and does credit to his head as well as heart. His recent speech in favor i of humane treatment of the Indians is what the people of Maine, knowing his eharae-! ter, were prepared to expect. It breathes j honor and kindness to the red men in ! every line, and is characterized by a grasp | and knowledge of the subject that evince j care anil thoroughness in the study of it. The same ideas of justice to a degraded | race and advancement of humanity which led Mr. Morrill to become a Republican, j impel him to advocate measures for the amelioration and improvement of the con dition of the Indians. The New Turk Tribune of Saturday echoes the prevailing sentiment in the following article : “The friends of justice and humanity ! throughout the country have reason to ex press their admiration of the way in which Senator Morrill lias recently defended the rights of the aboriginal population of the Far West. Mr. Morrill has evidently stud ied the question in all its points and bear ings. If arguments based on justice are not sufficient, he brings forward argu ments based on cost and expenditure, lie shows wliat a fearful price we pay for maltreating and cheating the Indians, lie shows that during the last seven years the military service on the frontier has cost the Government one hundred ami forty millions of dollars, lie argues that it is time for the American people to think of these things, and to see if there cannot be I some wiser policy discovered than that which has heretofore been enforced. AVe trust that Senator Morrill, who lias lately been the leading champion of Indian rights in Congress, will boldly assume the j responsibilities of this position. He will 1 be supported bv a very powerful public I sentiment. The people now realize more I keenly than ever before that we have oth er relations to the Indian beside that of ' his butcher. The I’iegan massacre was ■ one of the most effective means—bloody means though it was—of rousing the pub I lie conscience, which has found expres sion lately through the Indian Commis sion, the Peace Convention, the Quaker meetings, and in other ways. The mis sion of the Sioux Chiefs to Washington is the Indian response to this popular desire for peace and justice. We earnestly hope that these movements may result in the establishment of a Christian policy toward them for the guidance of our (Jovern ment.” An extensive conflagration raged in Con stantinople on the 5th and Oth. It broke out about one o’clock 1’. M., and spread with alarming rapidity through the richest quarter of the city. The flames were discovered in an old building in I’era, on the North side of Golden Horn. A strong wind was blowing at the time, and the tire quickly communicated to the adjoining buildings. The efforts of the firemen and citizens to stop the flames were futile and in a few hours the residences of the English, American and Portuguese Ambassa dors and Consulates, Naom theatre, many churches and mosques, thousand* of houses and tlie richest stores and stiops in the city were reduced to ashes. The loss of life by the falling of walls was fearful. It is estima ted that at least thirty people were killed or injured by this cause alone. The loss is in calculable. On tlie evening of the 6th tile tire was checked. The municipal election in \\ ashington, I). resulted iu the choice of Mr. Emery, the reform candidate for Mayor. There was very little disorder through the day. A resolve instructing the Ways and Means Committee to report a bill repeal ing till duties on coal passed the House of Representatives by seventy majority. OESEkal SEWS. lion. li. F. Wade is a candidate for Con gress, in Ohio. The Rothschilds are said to have lost lately enormous sums ot money. Nearly all the Fenian leaders have been re leased on iiaii. The “Anti-Radical” is the unique name of a new paper just started at Newhern, North Carolina. The Bedford (Ind.) News says that a bull frog weighing six pounds was captured last week near that place. The largest raft ever on the Mississippi was one from the Chippewa river, containing two million feet of lumber. Arrangements have been completed at Ber lin for the annexation of the duchy of I.au renhurg to the kingdom of Prussia. Outside of New (Means there were no pub lic schools in I.ouisana until 1869. A Scandinavian [Lutheran Church was or ganized lately at Duluth, Minn., among the laborers on the Northern Pacific railroad. Tlie Minnesota Western railroad has eliang cd its name, and is now known as the Minne apolis and St. Louis Railway. The English Congregational Union, at its late meeting in London, had an earnest discus sion on tlie subject of a revision of tlie Eng lish Bible. Advices from tlie west coast of Africa re port that a party of missionaries have been captured by the Ashantocs and taken into tlie interior.

The sentence of death passed upon the English convict Rutterford, who was respited on account of tlie malformation of his neck, lias been commuted to penal servitude for life. In the General Assembly of the United Pres byterian Church, the question, “Does a di vorce secured on the ground of desertion leave the parties at liberty to marry again?” was answered in the affirmative. The silk manufacturers of Paterson, N. J., arc looking forward to the time when raw silk can be obtained from California; and members of the leading silk firms have been sent to that State to acquaint themselves with the pros pects of silk culture there. Many of the more intelligent slaves in Tex as used to escape into Mexico, where nil colors are equal and prejudice does not prevail.— Since the emancipation many still incline to go to Mexico for the sake of equality which there prevails. The manufacture of cigars in Key West has greatly increased since the Cuban war has driven so many people away from the island. The import tax on the tobacco used this year it is estimated will amount to $00,000. Last year it was only $0,000. The Andaman islands, in the Bay of Ben gal, are reported to be sinking. There are 0,000 convicts on them, but they will not be drowned unless they live 1000 years, that be ing the time computed for the disappearance of the islands beneath the w ater. The support of the bishops is becoming u question of interest in the Methodist Episco pal church. Their support is now derived from the profits of the publication business, and this is objected to as requiring to keep up the prices and thus control the circulation of the Methodist literature. In Massachusetts, a teacher asked a little girl who the first man was. She answered that sliu did not know. The question was put to tlie next, an Irish child, who answered loudly, “Adam, sir,” with apparent satisfac tion. “Law,” said the lirst scholar, “you needn’t feel so grand about it; he wasn’t an Irishman!” The Argus says the Maine General Hospi tal fund is now quite large, having reached nearly 8”<>,000. A few days ago a prominent : citizen of Portland donated to the institution $1,000, and a large part ol the present amount in the treasury wus received in 81,000 dona ! tions. LETTER FROM 11OST0X. Anniversary Week— The Anniversaries— The May Training — Decoration Day— The Bcethoren h'es iral—The Handel and Hay den Society—The Annual Exhibition of Flowers in Horticultural Halt—(Jr. Boston, June 3d, 1870. The anniversary week of 1870, has come nml gone like so many others, and although the meetings were smaller than on some pre vious occasions, yet the time was very pleas ant, and the heavens smiled propitiously ‘nearly all the week, the storm which was an nounced for Tuesday resulting in a slight drizzle and lowering sky only, which was not sufficiently threatening to keep people indoors. The umbrella—that constant companion of peo ple generally at this particular season—became useless, and rested quietly from its labors, to the unbounded satisfaction of its possessor. Meetings were held as usual in all parts of the city, so of course one could not possibly attend them all. The Woman’s Suffrage Con vention met in Trcmont Temple and Fraterni ty Hall, and a great many good speeches were made by Wendell Phillips, William Lloyd Garrison, James Freeman Clark, Mrs. Liver more, Mrs. Julia Ward Howe and other friends of the movement. Mr. Murray brought the power of his ora tory to bear upon “the social evil,” intemper ance, and demanded that the churches assist the police authorities to eradicate it. At the Anniversary of the Young Men’s Christian Union, in Music Hall, an immense audience listened to addresses by that funny Scotch minister. Robert Collyer, Dr. Bellows, Mr. Ilepworth, the Rev. Mr. Schermerhorn. who has recently taken the pastorate of the Church of the Unity, and James Freeman Clarke. Mr. Col Iyer’s address was highly entertaining, and frequently elicited an audible smile from his audience. I)r. Bellows’ subject—The De cade of Passion—was presented in his most masterly and elegant manner. Mr. Ilepworth took occasion to allude to some of the fash ions in a manner not particularly pleasing to many ladies, however true the applications were. The Rev. Mr. Schermerhorn was a little bitter upon his old faith, and very en thusiastic in the praise of his new home. James Freeman Clark, in the course of his remarks told a story about the Rev. Mr. Winkley, but I failed to see the point whicli he wished to illustrate; perhaps others did. And so the good, the great and the learned, gathered themselves together, with the rich and the poor, the high and the low. and no more bond, but all free, excepting as they were shackled by the fetters of sin; and who shall say that no good shall be the result of such a conclave and gathering of all sects, denominations, creeds, isms and factions? It was an unusually fine display that our military made at their annual training, on the Common, the 25th of last month. And per haps this was partly owing to the fact that they all had-wiew uniforms, and looked very nice as they were drawn up in lines or formed in battalions on the green. The lancers, uni formed in scarlet, and mounted on their white steeds added much to the effect of the whole, and the numerous cannon witli horses attached, as if awaiting action, made it seem very much like a war-like demonstration. The Common looked its best, and all seemed to be enjoying it, from the girls and hoys who were amusing themselves by rolling down hill, or showering each other with the new mown bay, to the older ones who loitered under the shade trees, or congregated in large numbers to sec the parade. Monday, the 30th of May, most places of business were closed, and the Grand Army with citizens and relatives of our dead heroes, repaired to the different cemeteries to strew their last earthly resting place witli flowers. The militia and soldiers looked very finely, marching along to the beat of the drum and the inspiring music, each with a beautiful floral offering for some fallen comrade. A magnificent pyramid of flowers went out to Mount Hope, and several carriages loaded witli sweet buds and blossoms found their way to Mount Auburn. Flags were floating at half mast in all parts of the city. A fitting tribute, indeed, to pay the departed; and we must not forget that it was inaugurated by our southern sisters, who did not pass by the grave of the poor Union soldiers, but strewed all alike with "the emblems of peace. Truly, “They banish our anger forever. When they laurel the graves of our dead.” It is certainly well that one day in each year should be consecrated to the memory of those who fought so well and nobly; and while the dead are remembered, let not the living—those who may be suffering even now from want—the widows and orphans of the humble private, he forgotten, hut looked after and cared for by a wise government and the citizens of oar large cities. A very interesting trial has been going on in the Superior court, which some of your Augusta readers may be curious about, as the defendant, I understand, was formerly of that city. Some months ago, as was related by a gentleman whose wife was requested to ex amine the contested hill. Sirs. Olivia 1*. Flynt. a fashionable dressmaker, residingat-45 Chauu eey street, sent a bill to Mr. Coolidge, who with his wife hoards at the Hevere House, for 81,011,11 the same being for three months dressmaking. Mr. Coolidge thought it ex orbitant and refused to pay. After several interviews, it was found that no esmpromise could be effected and so the case was .submit ted for trial, and occupied the most of last week; it was resumed on Monday last, but the jury failing to agree, were dismissed, and it is probable the case will have to he tried over, unless it can he settled in some other way. One black silk suit cost $413,21; a cambric suit 813,35 and a white pique 802,71. The other items were in accordance. That old saying, that “If people dance they must pay the fiddler," seems very applicable in this instance; so if one employs a fashionable dressmaker, who prides herselves—as Mrs. Fly IK dues—upon her artistic merit us costum er, I suppose they may expect to pay hand somely for it. It is reported that Mrs. Flynt has several other such cases pending. The New Yorkers propose to make the Beethoven Festival, which will commence the loth of June, and continue four or five days, quite an ntfair,—equalling, perhaps, the fa mous Jubilee. They have invited the Ilandel and Hayden society to come on and sing for them. The society met last Tuesday evening to discuss the expediency of the measure, and finally decided to accept if upon investigation by a committee deli gated to go on to New York for that purpose, it is found that the hall. which 1ms been advertised in the papers to ac commodate 25,000 people, will not accommo date more than 8,000, as has been stated to the secretary of the society by the gentleman in New York with whom he has been corres ponding upon the subject. As the chorus are to give “Elijah,” Mr. Zcrrahn, the conductor, says it could not be sung by five hundred— the number going—with good effect, in a hall that would seat so many. It is very probable that they will go, and if they do so, Madame l’arcpa ltosa will accompany them. “A tiling of beauty is a Joy forever,” I exclaimed, as I stepped into Horticultural hall last evening and took in at a glance the whole array of floral loveliness; and my de light increased at every step. There were azaleas—red, white and pink; geraniums scented and flowering, nnd some novel plants to me, one marked calceolareas, which in one pot had a blossom very much resembling a strawberry, being of the same color, and dot ted with those little black specks that we sec in the strawberry. The other pot had a yel low blossom. Thu cinerarias vveru one mass ! of bloom, having a purplish blossom a little | smaller, perhaps, than a daisy. Then there was a species of colens, noticeable for the rich- I ness of its leaf, which is green, or maroon, and perhaps variegated, looking very much i like velvet. I admired this a great deal, and was much interested in its history, as related [ by one of the members of the society. There | was a variegated geranium which was hand- , somer than any thing of the kind I ever saw. There was also a gorgeous display of peonies, and among the cut flowers none sweeter than the heliotrope and laburnum. A large and brilliant variety of rhododendrons graced one side of the hall, and a pot of strawberries oc cupied the centre of a table w hich was also graced by two [dates of large and luscious looking peaches. But I have not space to tell of all 1 saw, or how much 1 enjoyed it, and how pleased, and social, and happy everybody else seemed, as they delightedly made their way round, until a sentiment of Henry Ward Beecher’s occurred to me, where he says :— “that if a multitude of men were turned into a fie ld of flowers, they wauld be drawn to gether in a transien brotherhood.” 1 be lieve it; and the Massachusetts Horticultur al Society, by the inducements they throw out for people to take more interest in the mat ter, are doing the same thing for horticulture that Dr. Torjee is for music. These exhibi tions are free, and are held each week between twelve and one, Saturday afternoon, during the summer season. The rose show will oe- ^ eur soon, and be worth attending. Ho for California! The Pullman Palace cars and their living freight of humanity have arrived in San Francisco, and already the waters of Massachusetts and San Francisco Bay are mingling together. The vexed question of the Hartford nnd Erie Railroad seems to be near a settlement, which is certainly to be hoped for it has re quired a great deal of legislation. But although there is a great deal that I have not written, I think I must keep it until next time, for 1 believe editors have a sort of horror of long communications, ami this is al ready longer than usual. Pebsis. LETTER FROM PORTLAND. ■ Portland, June Gtli, 1870. I think it must have been a week since I wrote you from here, a long time certainly between sentimental young people who do not quite understand each other, but not a great j matter between us who are used to the devious ways of newspaper people and know time and cares press sometimes. And, then, we are getting close upon the time when this commuuity is to be convulsed by the awful contest between llersey and Pcrham for Governor, Lynch “or any other man” tor Member of Congress, and other things both great and small that sorely interfere with one’s high resolve to “write often and loflg letters, you knowindeed I only get time to do so much as this little letter by taking from the allotment for sleep I made when I was younger and had more leisure than now. And then again (I like to abound in reasons) there is not much to write about. It is hot and dry. country folks and city folks—unless the latter have Sebago and a length or two of hose—alike complain of a very unusual drought, which means very likely, that they have really known many just such hut don't choose to hunt them up now. Of course there is no summer travel yet and consequently no change in local affairs here. Nor is there a prospect of anything new in the way of summer items, except perhaps the new Steamer and Stage lines between here and the upper Saco valley ami the mountains, put on and jnst begun to run, by Hon. C. K. Gibbs of Ilridgton. which promise to rev olutionize the summer travel this season so far as that general direction is concerned. In politics, affairs have settled down so nearly between llersey and Pcrham for Gov ernor. there is really no great popular de monstrative interest, but rather a quiet sense among those accustomed to pass upon these \ things. If you should ask me who will com mand the most votes for Governor in this county I should say Perhatn, but I may be mistaken. At present the canvass is largely one of a personal kind and it is impossible to tell who will do this with the most thorough ness. It is growing warm among the friends of the various Congressional aspirants from this district, and looks now as though it might go to York Co. It will most certainly if there shall be any great effort to unite the Y'ork Co. people, and it is even now hinted that Mr. Lynch may withdraw before the time comes. ■ If he does it will be in favor of Judge Tapley probably. The friends of Hon. N. G. .Mar shall have begun some sharp and systematic work for him, and considering his late enter ing upon the canvass he is proving himself very strong, and I should say that he could command as many votes in Cumberland Co. as any other man. Gen. Wentworth's support ers are also hopeful, and he certainly has more strength than has heretofore been ac corded to him. I am inclined to think that Mr. Goodwin’s strength has been overesti mated. lVrhaps another week may better define the status of matters above hinted at, but 1 have given you what seems to me now to be a fair estimate of thohances, well knowing how ever, that it is a bad year for making slates. Y'ours hurriedly, CosMorot-tTE. Domrstic Nrtoss. The Camden Herald says the citizens of Rockport were considerably surprised, a few days ago, at the discovery of a well made hut: constructed of boughs and brush, upon the western side of the village, containing a wagon load of crockery, preserve jars, and many other articles of household ware. Cpon investigation, it turned out that the place had been fur a month or more the rendezvous of ten or twelve urchins, rang ing from six to twelve years, who bad made raid after raid upon the house of Capt. Aun> bury, who is absent at sea, till they stripped it of crockery ami everything edible, includ ing some dozen or more jars of choice pre-1 serves. Nor were their depredations confined to this house, but other dwellings were levied upon though none to so great an extent. The young rogues had all the paraphernalia for cooking, and no doubt had many a jolly time feasting upon lobsters, cake, pies, preserves, jellies, and stub other provender as they could lay their hands on. Fortunately their wicked career was nipped by one of them who thought be bad been ill-used in a divi sion of spoils turning traitor and “blowing.” A good deal of castigation by indignant par-1 cuts took place in Rockport on the evening of, the discovery. Townsend Marine Railway at Boothbay harbor is completed and was opened for busi ness June. 1st. It is built of the best material with an ample capacity for taking up vessels of 1200 tons. It is said by men who are judges that this is the best railway on the coast according to the capacity for taking vessels up. Mr. Luring, the master builder, has been in this business for thirty years, and this is probably the last one be will build. He has done himself honor and received the thanks and best wishes of the Townsend Marine Railway ( o. W. W. Thomas, Jr.. State Commissioner of Immigration, writes lion. 1*. 1*. Burleigh.
