llain is greatly needed. The democrats all look blank when asked for the name of their candidate for governor. Early Hose potatoes, four inches in length and quite ripe, have been dug recently in this city. When completed, with the patent boxes in their places, the now post office in this city wil! have as handsome a front as any institu tion of the kintl in New England. The ladies of the Free Baptist church will Isold a Strawberry Festival in their Vestry this (Thursday) evening, and invite every body to be‘present. No admission fee. The examination of the grammar school took place on Tuesday, with results highly creditable to the Principal, Mr. Hobertson, and his assistants. I'nity will celebrate the Fourth of July by a horse trot in the afternoon and a grand bull in the evening—so we are informed by a cor respondent in that place. A bouquet of the fairest and most fragrant summer flowers, a gift from the hands of a friend, is expressive of thoughtfulness and a tender appreciation of the beautiful things of life. The donor of a beautiful bouquet, to be placed upon our desk, will please accept our thanks. The Atlautic Engine Company of this city have voted to celebrate the Fourth by an ex cursion to Webber’s pond. Most of the com pany will go. The excursion will be a de lightful one, if the day is pleasant. Webber's pond has become a popular place of resort for pleasure-seekers. In Machias market butter retails at 25 to 30 cents; eggs 2G cents; lamb 10 to 15; mutton 8 to 10 cents : potatoes GO to 75 cents ; dry cod fish, best at 8 cents; smoked alewms 12 to eighteen cents per dozen; veal 8 to 10 cents; flour G.00 to 810. per barrel; corn $1.35; molasses 45 to 95. There is to be a fine display of fire-works at the Arsenal on the evening of the Fourth. The preparations for the display are on a more elaborate scalp than they have been for years; and as the works are all manufactured by Sargent McGregor, who has many years experience in the business, a successful exhi bition is assured. The new bell tower, ordered by the city council, is being built on the Atlantic engine house. An alarm Dell on the east side of the river has long been needed, although the fire men in that vicinity have been in the habit of untiling out the fires. A sharp-toned bell will be placed in the tower, to be used as an alarm bell in ease of fire. We understand that the ceremony of raising the bell will . take place on Saturday evening. A plucky lady landed from the steamer Lewiston at Sedgwick on Monday, when she found her baggage was not landed. She was put off by being assured that it would be landed Monday. This did not suit her, and as the gang way plank was being hauled in the put her little foot on it and demanded her baggage. The usual accommodating officer found that woman’s rights must be heeded, and the baggage was found and landed. At the bead of the editorial columns of the democratic papers will probably appear the name of the nominee of the State convention. “For Governor, - -, of -." The guns of the campaign will probably be loaded with blank cartridge*. The nomination falls like a wet blank-et in Augusta, and the defeat of the party will be sung in blank verse next September; ‘•Oh, wretched sinners that we arc. All doomed to blank despair!” Ve received at this office yesterday a box of strawberries fit to set before a king, which were presented by Mr. J. B. Packard of Ilal lowell. They were raised by his son Samuel Packard, at a place on Chelsea Point, of which this lad, only eighteen years of age, is sole manager. All he knows of gardening has been qbtained from books and three years' practice. These strawberries we think are the largest and nicest looking we ever saw. If our young gardener continues as he has begun there will be larger stories to tell of his success than this. Mr. W. H. Stone of North Berwick, who was in the last graduating class at Kent's Hill, is canvassing the city for an illustrated and very useful work entitled “Our Rulers and our Rights." Judge Anson WjUis, the au thor, is an able jurist and brings to the prepar ation of this work profound seolarship and judgment. Information is given on subjects with which every person should be familiar, but of which the mass are strangely ignorant. It treats of every subject in any way con nected with the legislation, judicial and ex ecutive departments of the Federal Govern ment. As a book of reference to he placed in the library it will_ be found useful. Mr. Stone will deliver the work to subscribers in a short time. The examination of the high school com menced yesterday and will continue through to-day, closing this nflernoon. A critical re view of the various studies pursued during the term, evinces a thoroughness on the part of the accomplished Principal, Mr. Lambert, and the utmost diligence, patience and persever ance on the part of the students. In all the efforts of the Principal to bring forward this school to the very front ranks of our educa tional forces, heHias been ably seconded by his competent assistants. The school will now compare favorably with any high school in the State, both in regard to the grade of its studies and its scholarship. The instructors and pupils have permitted nothing to turn them aside from their work, but have engaged in it with earnestness and enthusiasm. The fruits of these efforts have appeared at the examin ation, and will show themselves still more at the exercises of the graduating class which will take place to-morrow afternoon in Mconiau Hall. We know tliat we reflect the sentiments of the entire school when we say that with a teacher like Mr. Lambert and with the incentives to study that he places before them, the hardest studies become easy and every task a pleasure.

Masonic Celebration. •The day is past and gone," and our streets which for the past two days hare been alive with an eager, interesting and brilliant crowd of the Masonic fraternity, and those whom their presence drew to this city, have again resumed their usual appearance Yesterday having been devoted to the whole Masonic fraternity, to-day was ap pointed for the particular parade, review and entertainment of the Knights Templars. At nine o’clock the various Commandtriea took up the line of inarch to Warren’s field, on Lime St., where two hours were spent in batallion drill, in which their evolutions were gone through with in good military stylo, the Commanderics winning much applause from the thousands who were present, for the handsome manner in which they acquitted themselves. The encampment was then in spected and reviewed by It. E. G. Commander McClellan and staff. They then marched to the pavillion on City Common, where they partook of a collation, after which the line of march was resumed, anil the batallion paraded through the principal streets to the Bangor House, where it was dismissed, and the Commanderics retired to their several quarters for dinner.
