The beautiful steamer “Ella,” which is to ply between this city and Portland, arrived here yesterday afternoon at six o’clock. Two young men, members of the high school, of about the same age, both good scholars, have died within a week—Gould and Rutherford. The thunder tempest Monday night extend ed over quite a range of country, in some places carrying destruction in its train. In this city, with the exception of tearing away young vines from their support, the damage was quite slight. It will be seen by an item elsewhere that a house within the city limits was struck by lightning. The Maine Medical Association will hold their eighteenth annual meeting at Bangor on the 28th. Members of the quill fraternity, we believe, are excluded from the secret sessions of this body, but members of the pill fraternity are in full fellowship. The meeting at Ban gor occurs the same time as the Masonic gathering, and it has been hinted by an indi vidual inside the ring, that the occasion is to be a sort of Medico-Masonic affl lir. Work is progressing rapidly on the new reservoir to supply water to the Asylum at Togus. Gen. Tilton’s house is finished and he now occupies it. The portable railway is in successful operation, bringing the hill to the valley. A large piggery been has built within a few weeks, which will afford room for the extension of this branch of farming opera tions. There is an air of comfort and cleanli ness about the entire establishment at Togus. The excursion of the members ol the high school to the seaside did not take place yester day. The teachers and scholars were prompt ly at the wharf at half-past six in the morning, but through some misunderstanding the little steamer “Clarion" did not put in an nppear ance. After waiting for some time the little folks and their friends concluded to change the programme, and take a ride out to one of the ponds in the country. Accordingly teams were chartered and an excursion made to Webber Pond, where the day was much en joyed by all present. Mr. A. W. Scott, for fourteen years con nected w ith the Boston Police department, and recently proprietor of the panorama “Streets of Boston,” has removed to this city, and intends to make Augustu his home. Mr. Scott is interested in all the reformatory measures of the day, having seen in his offi cial position the different steps leading to ruin, ' and the derious ways of sin in which the youth of our country are too often led. He has frequent calls to address Sabbath schools, and speaks with enthusiasm and ability on the subject of temperance. A friend of ours who has a boy three and a half years old—one of those very remarkable children (in the eyes of their fond parents)— who has but just now learned to remain per fectly silent during morning prayers. A night or two since on going to bed, and after re peating that sweet little prayer we have so many of us—we trust it has never been for gotten, and that many “children of a larger growth" in their simple faith yet repeat the ^amo words—learned in our infancy, said with great solemnity, “Atnen.” Then waiting a moment, he said in the same thoughtful way, “Awomen.” .The house of Thomas Little, Esq,, on Mid dle street, (east side of the river,) was gently struck by lightning about half-past 8 o’clock Monday evening. The fluid apparently passed from the branch of a tree which overhung the roof to the roof itself and from thence into the wall of the garret, knocking off two or three square feet of plastering, and splinter ing quite a number of clapboards. It occas ioned no serious damage. The clapboards were somewhat blackened. Mr. Little and his family were in another part of the house at the time and of course for a few moments felt considerably thunder-struck. Mr. Edward Bowse, at his jewelry store on Water street, in this city, has for sale the “National Coffee Pot,” notice of which has been given in several of the papers, and which it is thought will be the means ol bring ing back many an old coffee drinker who has abandoned its use and taken to cold water. The pot is manufactured by the National Tea and Coflee Pot Company, and is of itself a beau tiful article of domestic furniture. It is divid ed into various departments, is in fact a pot »ithin a pot. The inner pot cannot be boiled, consequently no steam or fumes arise, and the aroma of the coffee is all retained, ensuring excellent coffee. The coffee in the vessel cannot be spoiled by boiling. We shall give this new contrivance a thorough test, and promise our readers to commend it if it is de serving. Allen Chandler Rutherford, oldest son of Mrs. W. A. Rutherford of this city, died on Monday night last, at the age of 18 years. The death of this young man will carry sor row to many hearts. To the mother whom he loved so well and served so faithfully and affectionately, it will come with almost crush ing weight, llis schoolmates and associates will miss the sweet, pule face and cheerful word of a companion who commanded always their respect; the church and congregation of which he was a member, who have often heard his voice in sacred song, will Ik- sincere mourners beside his early grave. His trust was in his Savior, lie was granted but a few years' time in which to serve Him on the earth, but those were filled up with Christian love, faith and works; aud now that he has been called early home to enjoy with angels the mere immediate presence of his Savior, his best and most intimate friends would not wish him back to earth, where, even at the highest point of spiritual attainment, lie must “ecu. through a glass darkly.” Boothbay Marine Railways. The Townsend Marine Railway, located in McFarland’s Cove at Boothliay Harbor, is now in operation. The “ways” are 448 feet long; there are two “cradles” 153 feet long and 40 feet wide. This Railway is capable of holding a vessel of 38 feet width, or of about 1000 tons. The engine is 15 horse-power. The chair is two and one-fourth inches iu di ameter where it is subjected to the greatest strain. The cost of the works has been $13,300. The enterprise has been carried for ward under the superintendence of Mr. K. G. Loring, formerly of Cape Cod, who has built eight marine railways, hut pronounces this one the best of all. The Iioothbay Ma rine Railway was built by Mr. Loring at a cost of $10,700. This railway will hold a vessel of from 500 to GOO tons, and has been in operation three years. Special Notices.

IMPORTANT FACTS! For the Public. NEW EASTERN DEPOT FOR THE WORLD RENOWNED SINGER SEWING MACHINES. Opposite the Post Office, AUGUSTA, - - MAINE. These Machines, by their fdmplcity, durability, and the great range of work they’execute, have gained a reputation truly enviable. The famous success of the HIM.ek M wit vci i ir l\G (omi'ANV has stimulated many other com panies to put forth all their energies and talents lo produce a Hewing machine that would eclipae or equal the Singer, but ill every ease they have sig nally tailed, u-, if, plainly shown by the tael, that of all the travelling agents—“runners «»|- drummer*” —of other companies, none have the assurance lo claim more than an equality w ith the >inger, even upon am special class of w ork. There are many sewing machines, now offered to the public, that have their good points, and are of much assistance to the housewife and the industri ous seamstress.

Senate. Mr. Sherman, from the Finance Committee, reported that the Committee unanimously recommended non-concurrence in the amendments of the House to the Senate Currency hill, and the appointment of a Com mittee of Conference. The tariff' hiil was made the special order as soon ns the Consulate appropriation bill was I disposed of. The Senate then resumed the Post Office appropriation bill, and the franking appeal amendments. Mr. Trumbull's amendment, limiting the i franking privilege to the dep’t, and allowing public documents to be franked only from Washington City, was rejected, 22 to 25. Sherman, Warner and Sprague have been | appointed as a Conference Committee on the part ot the Senate, on the Currency bill. The Senate then proceeded with the Con sular and Diplomatic appropriation hill and adopted amendments providing for a Consul General at Liberia, raising the Minister to Japan to Envoy extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary, and increasing the appropri ation for contingent expenses of foreign inter course, and for missions, from $50,000 t<> $150,000. Hoi.sk. Mr. Butler, from the Reconstruc tion Committee, reported a bill for lull am! general grace, amnesty and oblivion of wrongful acts, of all persons engaged in the late rebellion. Ordered to be printed and recommitted. Mr. Schcnck of O.. from Committee on j Ways and Means, reported back the Funding bill, with one slight verbal amendment, and asked that it be made a special order for Tuesday next. Mr. Randall objected. Mr. Schcnck withdrew the bill, saving that he would take the chances of its being made a special order in the House next Mon day, under a su.-pension of the rules. Among the bills reported, was one by Mr. Ela of X. II.. reciting that $<>7k,372 was due by the Cnited States to the State of Mass., for interest on expenditures during the war , of 1M2. The bill went over without action. I The case of B. F. Whittimorc of 8. C., j came up by a special assignment, and Mr. Logan of 111., offered a resolution, meeting tin* action of the Committee on Military Affairs, and the House in reporting a resolu tion declaring that Whittimorc by selling naval cadetships, was unworthy of a seat in j the House; reciting 1 is election and presen tation of his credentials, and resolving that the House of Representatives decline to al- i low the said B. F. Whittimorc to be* sworn in j as a Representative in the 41st Congress, and 1 direct that his credentials be returned to linn. Mr. Logan proceeded to address the House in support of the resolution, and quoteil the statute which rendered Whittimore liable to be tried criminally for his offence, and on conviction to he murdered, infamous and in capable of holding any place of trust or profit, under the government of the United Slates. He held that the judicial action of the House in the matter disqualified him, the same as if he had been tried and convicted in a court of justice. If the House had power to expel them by parity of reason, it had power to exclude them otherwise. The power to expel did not amount to anything. This man’s constituents had.bten notified that the House had solemnly declared that he was unworthy to occupy a seat as a member, hut they had thought it proper as if to insult the House to re-elect him. The House had no right to say that a man should be excluded on account of his polities or faith, but it had the right to say that a man of infamous character should he excluded. Mr. Lldridge of Wis., suggested the danger of assuming such a right, which might be ex- | tended to the exclusion of men on account of their politics or religion. Mr. Logan denied that the position which he took was open to such criticism. He had directly disclaimed the power of the House to exclude men on account of politics or religion, hut only on account of what the law declared to he a crime. The ease of Giddings of Ohio, who was censured by the House for introduc ing anti-slavery resolutions, w ho resigned and w as re-elected and re-admitted at the same Congress, was not a contrary precedent, be cause his offence was not a crime. So to with Brooks and Keitt. Mr. Farnsworth took offence to an allusion made against him by Mr. Logan, as a iriend of Mr. Whittimore. He did not want the gentleman to indulge in such a fling at his ex pense. lie was no more that gentleman’s friend than his colleague was, but he was in favor of deciding the ease on a cairn, dispas sionate view- of it. Mr. Eidridge of Wis., suggested a case of a constituent desiring to be represented by j just such a man as Whittimore, and partici- S paling in the benefits of his acts, and asked w hether a refusal to admit him would not be i touching on the rights of representation. Mr. Logan denied that it would, lie said the ease was exactly as the election of a! colored man would have been before colored i men were admitted to citizenship. Whitti more’s constituents knew he was disqualified, just as colored men were disquhlified. After a long discussion, the matter was left to the Judiciary Committee to report the law and the precedents of the ease; and further, Mr. Whittimore was entitled to a seat in the House. The House went into Committee of the Whole on sundry civil expenses on the ap propriation bill. Mr. Dawes deemed this a proper occasion it being the last general appropriation hill to review the work of the Committee, and of the House in regard to public expenditures. He reminded the House of the remarks made by himself in the early part of the session, comparing the estimates of next year with the estimates of the last administration for the present year, and showing that the bal ance was alarmingly against the former. The remarks made by himself had been much commented on, and no two gentlemcff had since been able to agree upon the figures for either year. The Treasury department had however employed one of its most faithful accounts to review the estimates for both years, and he now laid before the House to be printed in the Globe, the result of that investigation. It showed the balance to he handsomely in favor of the estimates of this administration. The summary showed the estimate for the new year to he $8,098,295 less than the estimates for the preceding year. That difference was found by the department, correcting its own mistakes, in estimates to the amount of about $32,000,000, all made against itself, and correcting the estimates made by the l;ist administration for the year, to the amount of about $5,000,000, all inado in its own favor. With these corrections, the differ ence in favor of the estimates of this admins trillion, was $8,098,245. The Committee on Appropriations had adhered itself to the work of redeeming the pledge made to cut down appropriations, not only lielow the es timates for next year, but also below the ap propriation for the present year. He took pride in submitting the result to the House. The estimates for the year ending June 30, 1871, exclusive of what was called perma nent appropriations were, $150,090,727. The Committee had reported appropriations to the amount of 8141,753,502, a reduction oj $13,343,335. The appropriations for the present year, were $148,741,447, being 987,939 more than those for next year. These figures did not include permanent appropria tions. In conclusion he wished to say to the House that in all his association with Committees of the House lie never found men that addressed themselves more, faithfully to the arduous du ties imposed upon them, and appealed to the House to sustain the Committee in its efforts for economy.
