W. Forney, editor of the Phil adelphia Press, in that paper of the 4th inst., in an article concerning Howard University at Washington, said : “General O. O. Howard and Howard Univer sity are terms synonymous. They have both been grievously slandered, and they both promise to outlive their enemies, though by no means their benefactions. The General, after whom the Howard University is called, has passed through two great wars—one of them beaded by Robert lL Lee, in which he lost an arm, and the other headed by Fernan do Wood, in which he was threatened with the loss of something dearer than his arm, viz: his reputation. Well, the loss of his arm saved his lile in one war, and the salva tion of his repulution will save his life in the other. We are glad to say that if Robert E. Lee could not kill O. O. Howard at the head of the Confederate army in the South, Fer nando Wood could not kill his good name at the head of the Confederate party in the North. “And we really think no better thing could ; happen to the District of Columbia than that this good man should be saved from slander. ; He has been a rare benefactor to the District; ' and now that lie 'has escaped the brand, we j shall look to see his fine sense and bis bold i enterprise doing yet more to vitalize the cn-! ergies of the people of tiie Nation's Capital, i “We attended the Law School of the How- j ard University, closing its second year on | Fiiday evening last, and we fell, in listening i to the students, all colored people, one of them a lady, that there were some discover ies as useful as the telegraph and the steam engine, if not so wonderful, and among these ' the capacity of the freed people for all the duties of the highest citizenship deserves to 1 be enumerated. “It was five years last April since Robert i E. Lee surrendered to U. S. Grant, and now we have a University for the education of the j colored youth of America in the city of Wash- ; inglon, and a colored law school larger thaan any known in the South composed of wnitc ' students in the century before. ' Of the ten papers, four were read and six i spoken. The longest did not cover fifteen j minutes—a rule that compelled condensation on the hardest of subjects. There was not a I mistake ot taste; no pretence of oratory; |< no affectation of style. All was quiet, mod- I j erate, and constrained. The old lawyi rs present, Horace Maynard, of Tennessee, and 1 A. G. Kiddle, of Washington (formerly or : Ohio,) were surprised at the decorum ot the j Saxon and the severity of the logic. There j was a negro who talked in the Scottish dia- j left, and whose legal lore seemed to have • been learned under the direction of the old ( Edinburgh prolessors. There was a Hebrew, j not so dark, who recalled hy Ins manner the ^ graces of benjamin in the Senate, of Memin- j -ger at the bar, and of Disraeli in I'arliament. There was a colored woman who r,ad to us a 1 \ thesis on corporations, not copied from the j ^ books, but from her brain—a clear, incisive i analysis of one ot the most delicate of legal 1 questions. We rather think if Jeremiah S. I , Black, George Mtarswood, Ciiarhs U Lunor, j ” ami George 11 - lYnilleloi bad been asked to listen to these arguments without seeing the faces of the speakers, they would have gone into raptures over logic and learning worthy ol any white man’s country or parly. ‘‘Our good friend the Dean, the Professor John M. Langston, made no loud parade over his pupils, and that was best. He seemed to ; feel that they were simply vindicating a great truth-—that any of God s creatures who choose i to profit by the blessings of civilization are , s cure to succeed. this is what we would add of the How ard University. The coining vindication of ita gallant founder is auspicious of its own ▼ indication. In twenty years it will be to the District of Columbia a tar greater thing than the Smithsonian or the Coast Survey. The I intellectual success of its students will he fol lowed, as indeed it is already accompanied, by the money success of its managers. The colored youth of South America will no longer lie sent to Pari* to gather learning without in sult. They will rally to the capital of the only really free country on earth. Scholastic superiority will go band in hand with financial confidence, and many a rich anti-slavery man and woman will provide in their wills for the I moat generous maintenance of the Howard : University. If we had been secessionist* we ! would say ■ ‘•Let ua, then, moderate our censures of the gallant soldier, however bitterly we may hate the cause for which he iought. as we re member how he vindicated his ow n Integrity, bow hs helped the Xatiuq> Capital, and how be aided the deserving colored man and woman." Negotiation* for a new postal treaty have been reopened b.v ,lll! French Min ister, under instruction* from bis (Govern ment. Postmaster General ('reswell has submitted modified proposition*, which it D hoped will be accepted by the French Government POLITIC At, The Temperance Advocate publishes a letter from lion, X. G. Hichborn, in which j he Says that the position of the republican party on the temperance question renders the farther continuation of the third party unnecessary. The Oxford Democrat says : “Our Con gressional nominee, the talented Frye, will give strength to the ticket. He hies as many admirers in our county as in hisown, and is deservedly popular throughout the District.” LETTER FROM MR. BLAISE. House of Representatives. ) Washington, July 4, 1870, £ To <Ac Editor of Ike Advertiser: I find the following editorial paragraph in your issue of tire 1st instant: “Speaker Blaine has procured for Wm. B. Snell of Monmouth the appointment of judge of the police court of the District of Colum bia.” By what authority you feel justified in making this unqualified statement, I am at a loss to know. But you will, I trust, give me space enough in your columns to say that 1 had not the slightest instrumentality in procuring Mr. Snell's appointment; that I did not in any way endorse or re commend him ; that I was not so much as : asjpcd by himself or his friends to aid him : j and that, in short, I did not even know ! that his name was mentioned in connce 1 tion with the office until the appointment I was made by the President. Very respectfully, &c., J. G. Blaine. i —Portland Daily Advertiser, July 6fA. I In relation to the employment of female compositors, the “Printing Gazette," of j Cleveland, Ohio, says that it is often aston ishing to note with what rapidity time j levels the caprices of men and transforms ! the bleak mountains of prejudice into fields | luxuriant with the fruits of progressive and I liberal ideas. A few years ago the pres | ence of woman in a printing office was an infliction of the most intolerable sort, against which the hand of every male printer was raised as something that threatened the utter demoralization of the ! business. There are some yet above earth 1 who still teel this way, but they are, we I apprehend, few in number, and the tide | sets steadily against them. For example, : wo find that in Xew York city it is estima ted that three hundred women are em ployed at type-setting, and the Union reg ularly chartered by the International body, numbers some fifty or sixty memeers. In San Francisco there are a number of ! women in the business, who have a j “Woman's Co-operative Printing Union.” which is in a flourishing condition. Quite recently PhiladelphiaTypographical Union Xo. 2 admitted a lady to membership, without restriction of any kind, and she is now working regularly in an office of that j city. Typographical Union Xo. 7 of Day I ton has three female members, who enjoy all the privileges of the body, and the Chicago Union has had a woman as its Corresponding Secretary who is described as “an efficient officer, a perfect lady and j a good compositor.” It being thus estab | lished that women may not only acquire the art of printing, but be recognized in | it as entitled to the full privileges of men, we may not unreasonably anticipate that at no very remote period in the future the fair sex will constitute a large fraction of the craft, for certainly there arc few trades ! that offer a stronger invitation to women than that of printing, what everviews may be entertained as to her adaptability for it. •The flection in Illinois on Saturday last I resulted in the adoption of the new Con stitution, including the several amend ments submitted to separate vote, with the possible, but not probable, exception 1 of Minority Representation in the Legis lature. A Chicago journal estimates the pecuniary saving to the State by this change in the fundamental law at some thing over five millions of dollars per an num. The glorious results of the first fifteen months of President Grant's Administra tion are thus briefly summed up by the ■ Chicago Republican: “The reduction of the public debt $105,000,- I 000; continued peace with all mankind, and entangling alliance* with none; a reduction' oftho expenses of every Department; honest collection of revenues ; ousting and punish ment of dishonest officials; improved public credit; improved finances; economy; rigid' accountability wn the part of officials; and general peace, quiet, and restored law and order in all parts of the Union." OEXERAL XEl\S. Brazilian advices indicate the early eman cipation of her two million slaves. Don l’edro favors emancipation. Hon. E. B. Washburn, Minister to France, is improving in health. He goes to Carlsbad, i in Bohemia, this summer, to try its healing waters. There were twenty-one bidders for the mil lions of government gold sold in New York last week. Total bid $2,5*90,000, ranging from 111 to 111.56. The award of one million was at 111.51 and 111.56. Senator Sprague says ho has never intend- 1 ed to employ Chinese labor in his mills. The Secretary of the Treasury will sell i $1,000,000 in gold every Wednesday this month, and buy $1,000,000 in bonds every Thursday. Seven hundred and sixty-seven Chinamen , arrived in San Francisco last week, and since , ! January 1st, 8142 have arrived there. I • Dominion Day (July 1) was observed throughout Canada as a general holiday. In Toronto a monument in memory of thevolun- 1 teers who fell at Ridgeway in 1860 was un veiled, and the Governor General delivered ! an address. A sharp shock of an earthquake was experi enced throughout Greece last Friday. The town of Sartori* is a heap of ruins. An ia 1 l*nd in that neighborhood suddenly disap - peared at the time of the shock, i A despatch from Rome says two-thirds of . the lathers of th« Ecumenical Council will go homo as soon as the infallibility dogma is officially promulgated. Hans Christian Andersen, the story teller of Copenhagen, a lew days previous to the death of Charles Dickens, had received and accept ed an invitation from the latter to pass a few week* next autumn at Gad's Hill. The President spent bis Fourth of July at Woodstock, Conn.; Vice President Colfax at . Meadville, l’a., where he delivered an oration ; and Secretary Fish at bis home on the Hud- , son. General Sherman and Lieutenant-General Sheridan are both apprehensive of a speedy ! and wide-spread Indian war, ami are making preparations for the event. The people of Illinois voted. Saturday, on the new constitution for that State, and the returns, so far as received, indicate that it has been adopted by a large majority, and that all the articles submitted to a separate vote, in cluding that providing for the representation of minorities, have also been adopted. Judge Chase has rendered an important de cision in the United States District Court for Virginia. The case was this: E. S. Talley, administrator for the children of John Starke, deceased, having in his hands the sum of 05.000 belonging to said children, invested the same, in the year 1863, daring the pro gress of the late war, in Confederate bonds. Judge Chase decides that the investment com plained of is inoperative, and orders an ac count by the defendant with the complainants, and the payment of such a sum as may be found. Eighteen thousand emigrants left Liverpool in Juno for various American ports. The two “wild Australian children” that constitute a side-show in Forepaugh's circus, arc a pair of Warwick county, Indiana, idiots. The Evansville Journnl says the children were apprenticed to the showmen in that city by their father not more than three years ago. The lay delegation question in the Meth odist Kpiscopal Church is at length settled. The German and Swiss Conference at Carl« ruhe, the last to vote on the admission of lay delegates to the General Conference, east all its thirty-nine votes in favor of the change; and the entire vote of the ministry of the church is 4,946 for and 1,589 against lay del egation ; a majority of more than the three fourths required to sanction a constitutional reform, the lay members of the church and the General Conference having already voted in favor of it. Mrs. Kliza II. ISarbcr of Portsmouth. N. II.. widow of Jethro L. Barber, was burned to death Sunday afternoon. Her grandson Daniel had left her about half an hour before fire was discovered in her room ; she was then sitting at a table near and back to a stove, eating strawberries. Shortly before 5 o'clock, Mr. David Marshal, a neighbor, discovered smoke issuing from the house and with others entered Mrs.' Barber’s room, found it on fire and full of smoke, the old lady lying dead upon the floor, her clothes being burned oft and her body blackened and burned to a crisp. The fire was speedily extinguished, and itwas found that the chair on.which she had been sitting was scorched and a closet door against which she had fallen was badly scorched and had some of the flesh from her face adhering to it. Her body presented a horrible specta- j cle. No doubt the fire was communicated to to her clothing by the stove. Mrs. Barber was 78 years of age. was lame, and feeble in health'; so much so that she probably had not sufficient strength to raise her voice loud enough to be heard by any one in the house or on the street. ©otnrsstic Netos. Tbr Fourth of July. At Bath the Fourth was celebrated by a pa rade of the local fire department. A purse of a silver pitcher was offered for the best play- j ing. The contest was quite spirited, the t rumpet being won bv Deluge No. 3. which played a stream 195 feet and 8 inches. Ken nebec No. 1, came next, having played 135 feet. Bangor had no celebration and devoted it self all day to a circus. Several races took place at the Knox Trot ting Bark in Rockland. A large crowd was present in the afternoon. The principal race was a sweepstakes for a purse of 8550, be tween A. W. Worcester's Buck-kin McClel lan anti H. Bradley’s Black Walnut. The race was won by Black Walnut in three ! straight heats. Time 2.39 1-2 ; 2.34 1-2 and 2.34 3-4. A race for a purse of 81'X» between John Shaw's Beauregard, L. R. Ballard’s C’ushnoc, and A. Worcester’s black mare Annie, was won in three straight heats by Beauregard. Time 2.42; 249 3-4 and 2.42 1-2. In Lewiston the day was celebrated with much eclat by a parade of Fantasties, public literary exercises, balloon ascension, fire works and other exercises. There were celebrations at Farmington, Mechanic Falls and Wayne. At Boothbay, some 300 or 400 persons as sembled on Mouse Island, and enjoyed the day in the most nonchalent manner. The harbor was alive with boats sailing to and fro, while the Spray made regular trips from the island to the harbor and returning. What with a chowder and picnic refreshments and a dance the time was passetl as pleasantly as in more metropolitan districts. At West Waterville the demonstration was of the humerous sort—all about the Waterville bridge question. Our correspond ent says words would fail to convey an idea of the appearance of the motley crew of Fan ta6tics that collected, or of their curiously constructed vehicles. Banners were in abun dance, bearing inscriptions somewhat per sonal in many cases. Among them were; “Contractor—$30,000;’ ’“Six Thousand Dol lars Saved I” “Cadi Raid for Free Bridge Vo ters ;” “What Makes You so Mum, Benny?” This Benny was the only one in that sec tion of the town who signed the petition and voted for the free bridge, and nobody hat ever heard of his saying a word about the matter. The inevitable “Shoo Fly” of course came in and "Ilow’s This For High?” One banner had a bridge broken into, painted on it, with the inscription “Not Strong Knough!” In the evening the Masons and tlieir ladies held a strawberry festival, which passed off pleasantly.

The anniversary of the Nation's Indepen dence was celebrated at Mt. Vernon village. Firing guns and the ringing of bells com I menced about midnight and continued at in tervals until six o’clock in the morning. At that time quite a crowd witnessed the march j ing of one hundred and fifty “fantastics" led ! through the village by the Mt. Vernon Cor ; net Band, causing much merriment. At 11 a procession of Sabbath school scholars re paired to a grove where nearly two thousand , persons had congregated. A picnic dinner was served, and pithy speeches made by E. Kempton, Esq., S. Burbank, M. D., Kev. W. H. Clark, Mr. Chas. Webber, Kev. J. i Edgecomb, J. Bean, Esq., nnd Kev. Mr. Brook. But while all were in the highest glee and every one seemed elated over the success of the day, the sad news casting gloom on every countenance, reached the grove that a lad of thirteen years (son of Sanders Morrill of Vienna) had been drowned *n the lake near the village. F. The feldspar quarry at Topsham, is owned by a company in Trenton, N. J., who quarry out the feldspar and ship it to Trenton, where4 it is manufactured into a nice quality of ware, j The Bath Times says the quantity existing j there is immense. The whole ledge is com-! posed of immense beds of feldspar and smoky quartz, which sometimes mix up into a hand some graphic granite. Several thousand tons of feldspar are now quarried out and corded up ready for transportation. Interesting crys tals of feldspar and quartz are frequently ob tained during their operations. The feldspar is not a pure whit#, but of a greyish cast, but it is said to be of excellent quality for use. Tuesday morning Oscar Sylvester com- ! plained at the Portland police station that he : been robbed by one George W. Booker, a fel- i low from Hallowell, who slept with him at 1 i the Portland House on Monday night. Book- ! er got up in the middle of the night, stole $.'5o 1 out of Sylvester’s vest and then left for Washington street, where he passed the night. Deputy Sterling started as soon as he heard the complaint and soon arrested the thief at a house on Washington street. A girl with whom Sylvester was on terms of intimacy, was also arrested and a portion of the money recovered. A new and dangerous counterfeit fifty cent fractional currency note of the new issue with the Lincoln vignette, has just been put in circulation It very nearly resembles the genuine. The paper used in the genuine is pink tinted. The counterfeit is somewhat greenish in color, and the face is somewhat blurred. The words "fractional currency,” and Vie stamps are darkly shaded", which is not the case in the genuine. The Bangor Whig learns that Sir. Arnold of poxcroft, met with an accident on Satur | day last, which is feared will prove fatal. He was at work on his new mill at Sebec Lake removing the staging from the roof, when he fell to the ground, a distance of 27 feet. He has been unconscious most of the time since. Henry A. Lovejoy’s house in Andover, was burned June 24th, at half-past three o’clock A. M. The Oxford Democrat says ho lost everything, and his family barely escaped with their lives ; the children had nothing but their night-dresses m. The new steamer, which lias been built for the Boothbuy route, by Mr. Win. Pattce, was successfully launched at the ship yard of Mr. Rogers, in Bath Tuesday. The Times says she has been called the "Salsano," which is the ancient Indian name for the Back river whose waters she will make her home. The Lisbon paper mill is to be rebuilt at once.
