The Republican State Convention which will assemble to-ilay to nominate a candi date for Governor, will meet under favor able auspices, and no doubt conduct and complete its business with the discretion and good feeling which have always char terizcd the proceedings of such bodies in our State. It can look back to a work ac complished during the last ten years, for the advancement of individual freedom, the obliteration of caste, and the perpetuity and growth of republican institutions, sneh as is not equaled during the same time at any other period in the world’s history. The record which the republican party has made in its achievements for the human race is prouder than any other party can boast. It has not only saved our govern ment from destruction by rebel hands, but it has laid its foundations deeper and stronger, removed the rotten timber which threatened its downfall, and made it a fabric that other nations admire and fear, and to which other people struggling with despotism turn with hope and courage and renewed strength. Under the banner of the republican party has been exhibited patience, faith, wisdom ami heroism in the time of trial, magnanimity when the victory was won, inflexible justice towards the colored race, and the strictest honesty and fidelity in discharging the national ob ligations of whatever kind. While it pays its bonds according to agreement, it pro vides asylums in which the disabled who fought its battles are cared for. Follow ing in the path where Right and Justice seemed to lead, it has gone on as though by Divine Providence from success to sue- j cess, from victories in the battle-field to ; the grandest triumphs in statesman-hip. Let the convention which meets to-day in tms city to nominate a candidate ror Governor, remember that it Is a part of the organization whose record runs glorious- ! ly as above, and keep itself in perfect har mony therewith. Let firmness and digni ty rule the convention, honest difference ofiopinion and action be tolerated, and the result be accepted in good faith, so that harmony may prevail everywhere and the nomination be ratified in September by the full and undivided strength of the republi can party in the State. In the selection of a new candidate consequent upon the re tiring ot Governor Chamberlain, difference of opinion is unavoidable. Each candi date mentioned lias his favorites, and indi viduals and classes have their own ideas of policy and doty. The convention is the place to settle the question of supremacy, where every delegate has perfect liberty to act according to his convictions of right or the instructions of his constituency, and so far as he does this let him only be answerable to his conscience and those whom he represents. The broadest toler ation of action before and at the conven tion will give tin; best result and most sat isfaction afterwards. Fortunately the choice in this case is so narrowed down, that upon whichsoever of the two candi dates mentioned it may fall, it will rest ujsjn worthy shoulders. The struggle is between life-long personal friends, whose kind feeling towards each other is no wise lessoned by this rivalry at this time. The convention then lias a fair prospect before it of success, of a happy nomination, and of union ami a sweeping victory at the polls in September. Hawthorne says : "Mr. M-remarked of newspaper reporter*, that they may be known at all celebration*, and on any public occasion by the enormous quantity of luncheon they ] eat.” M. T, li&mbusch, of Minneapolis, is writ inir a ‘‘History of America” in the Norwegian language, and printing it in the Minneapolis N'ordisk Folkcblad. 'fhe West Virginia Democratic Convention lias resolved that the whites are the superior and ruling race of the country. The coal field* of Kansas are estimated to contain two hundred thousand square miles. The female convicts iu the State Prison of Jowaare compelled to perform the same man ual labor as that done by the other sex. I I OX. JAMES O. BLAISE. The republican convention of the Third Congressional district, yesterday renomi nated Hon. James <i. Blaine as a candi date for Representative to Congress, being the fifth nomination for Congress which he has had in this district. He was first elect ed in 1862, and his been returned every term since. There is no necessity of any extended notice in these columns of Mr. Blaine, in which but a few days ago was given a sketch of his career in Congress. It is sufficient to say that the annals of our State afford no eijual to his brilliant career in Congress, and that the House of Repre sentatives has few cases on its records to match it. The position which he holds as Speaker of the House is not a place for mediocrity. The men who have occupied it have been such a« ( lay and < 'olfax : none it i- acknowledged have tilled it with more distinguished ability than Mr. Blaine. He has reflected honor up n his district and State, and achieved at the same time a national reputation. Tor the fifth time his name goes before the people as a candi date, and again he will be returned to his seat by the usual rousing republican majority in this district. He is a shining mark for the opposition to direct their en venomed shafts against, but they have nev er succeeded with all their slanders in shaking the firm confidence of the voters in the Third district, in JAS. G. BLA1XE. He will go back again endorsed as largely as ever, to continue to preside over that body which has honored him with its lead ing position, and to fill out a record in the public service Mint promises to be among the most distinguished of those made in this period. RELATIONS WITH SPAIN. President <irant lias sent a message to Congress in relation to the affairs of this country in connexion with Spanisli Cuhan concerns. He reviews the state of tilings in Cuba, censures the mode of war fare of both the belligerents, recites the difficulties under which our country labors in consequence of the strife, refers to the practice of tlw government in past times, and protests against lillibustering* expedi tions in this country against any other. Cu ban matters however are in a very bad con dition. and the responsibility of our gov ernment is large and difficult. Still the President does not think the contest as waged there constitutes war in the sense of international law. After stating how much it falls short of such war, he says in substance that according belligerent rights to the insurgents under present circumstances would he a gratuitous moral support to rebellion, for which no neces sity has yet risen. The attention of Spain has been invited to the relations which Cuba is sustaining to us and the difficulties we are under upon her account. Every thing has been done that can be to pro tect the rights of our people, but evident ly President Grant has a mind of his own about Cuba and'is not going to be pushed into trouble if he can avoid it, THE SEW YORK JUBILEE. The New York Jubilee this week, in imitation of the great Peace Jubilee, is a musical affair of considerable magnitude, though not equal by any means to the original. The building in which it is held is :P>0 feet long and has seats tor 15,000 persons, so it is said. The Tribune says: What one week ago was a skating-rink is now a mammoth concert-hall. The stage is about the usual bight in front, but it rises gradually from the center to the walls on the sides and rear. . It is 75x180 feet. The orchestra will occupy the front part of the platform, and the choir will be seated on either side of the great organ. Additions have been made since the stage was first com pleted. so that now it will accomodate about 3.000 persons. I p from the waste of yellow pine rise nearly 2,000 pipes of zinc and gold, encircled with carvings of polished walnut. Two rows of ivory keys glisten in an un pretending case, waiting for the master’s hand. Mr. Gilmore pronounces tills organ far superior to the famous instrument of the Boston Coliseum. It was constructed by Mr. Henry Krbcn of this city, and it is said to possess great power and sweetness of tone. Owing to its great hight, it was necessarily built partially below the stage flooring. The following is a list of the singers who are to participate in the festival: Handel and Haydn Society of Boston, more than 500 voices, of which 230 are sopranos, 170 altos, and 201 bassos; Brooklyn Choral L'nion, 850; Salem, Mass., Oratorical Society, 300; Beethoven Choral Society, 100; New York Mendelssohn l'nion, 175; Associated Chorus | of New York, 000; Newark Harmonic Soci ety, 125; Plainfield Harmonic Uuion, 0‘J; Waterboro Mendelssohn Society, 80; New Haven Harmonic l'nion, 1x0; Bridgeport | Cl. .ml l'nion. 50; Bernard Stone Society, *0; Springfield (Mass.) Mendelssohn Uniont J0< Hanford Beethoven Society, 2G0; Wor ■ iral Union, 2W< the total number of socielit * which have offered their services ; give the following voices; 1,150 sopranos, 850 alms, 750 tenors, 1,050 bassos, and 800 periormers. In addition to these there will be about 400 visiting singers from different parts of the country, who will not he constantly present. The instrumental performers will, on spec ial occasions, number 500, anil for purposes of accompaniment, about 200. There will also he 50 anvils ami tw o batteries of ar tillery. A monster calliope will play outside of the building for the benefit of the public. Mr. Gilmore will take an active part in conducting the music. Carl Kosa: Carl Zcrrahn, the great leader at the Boston Jubi lee ; Carl Bergman, conductor of the N. Philharmonic Society, and Dr. James Pech, will assist in the several departments. Among the singers will be 40 leading operat ic stars, including Parepa-llosa, Miss Keljogg and Mrs. llichingi-Bernard. The various societies have been busily rehearsing during the past few weeks. The Oneida Indians have organized a brass band. Kansas State scrip sells for ninety cents on the dollar. Queen Victoria’s youngest child, Prince Leopold, is a sickly boy, who appears to be always ailing. The Boston Transcript says : “The person ! who deliberately throws bananna or orange j peel on the sidewalk is an enemy to the hu I man race." Domrstic Nrtos. — Nominations by the (iovrrnor.

Kennebec County Conference. The opening sermon yesterday atternoen was by Rev. W. C. Curtis of Richmond, from Gen. 4 : 9. “Am I my brother’s keeper?” The following questions was then discussed : “Should every church labor for, and expect an annual harvest of souls?” Rev. E. P. Baker of Winthrop, remarked that there was too much labor expended without expectation of results, preaching for the sake of preach ing. J. B. Bradbury of Waterville, was op posed to intermittent activity, and favored en- J deavors after a constant harvest. He also wanted to have the female membership take a more prominent part in the work of the churches, for example in social meetings. Chas. W. Hill, lay preacher, of Readfidd, , said that women had so long been silent, that they had forgotten how to use their liberty now that they had it. He told of an eagle, liberated after long captivity, which could only fly to the length of its former chain. j Rev. Dr. Bingham explained that the ques- j tion meant “at least an annual ingathering.” j He said a church should be like an orange tree, which was ever in bloom, and laden with fruit green and ripe; it should comprise ma ture and young converts, and inquirers, at all seasons. Remarks were also made by Dea. J. Han cock of Litchfield, Col. C. A. Wing of Win throp, and other speakers. The attendance was good, and much inter- j est was manifested by the audience. In the evening a sermon was preached by Rev. J. T. Hawes of Litchfield. The exercises to-day will consist of a pray er meeting at 8, reports from the churches at i 9, sermon by Rev. B. A. Robie of Water- i ville, at 10 1-2; after which a practical ques tion will lie discussed. At 1 1-2 the exercises will conclude with the Conference sermon by Rev. J. Dinsmore of Winslow, and the ad ministration of the communion. lion. Lafayette Grover, who next Septem ber will take the gubernatorial chair of Ore gon, to be vacated by Gov.

The Ellsworth American chronicles the death of John Demeyer, of Eastbroolc, one of Napoleon's soldiers. He was taken prisoner at Salamanca, Spain, by the English, and held over a year, and made his escape from the Is land of Campobcllo near Eastport, Me., in a small skiff with three other prisoners, to this State, where he has since resided.
