Kev. C. F. Penney of this city, is to preacli
the annual sermon at the Theological Semi

of next week. Mr. Penney graduated from
this institution eight years ago, and it is ex
ceedingly complimentary to be invited to re
turn and give the annual sermon.
Tlie Daily Journal has entered upon tlio
last half of the first year of its existence.
The results of our enterprise have been farinore
satisfactory than we had reason to expert at
the commencement of the year. Wchavea
good list of subscribers, with a gradual in
crease. Gardiner and Hallowcll people have
taken an interest in the Daily, and we have
respectable lists in both places. Our adver
tising patronage is constantly gaining, as
business men understand that a daily is per
manently established here and that it is for
their interests to use its columns in drawing
jmblio attention to their business. We guar
antee in the future the same undivided atten
tion to our paper that lias commended it to
the favor of the public in the few months past.
The expense of publishing a daily paper is
very large, much larger than most readers
have any conception of, and we respectfully
solicit an increase of subscribers and an addi
tion to our list of advertisers.
The city Assessors have finished their ex
amination of property, real and personal, and
have made up their figures for the year.
They are now busily engaged in making out
the tax lists, which will be placed in the hands
of the Treasurer and Collector fur collection
in the course of a week. The Assessor* have
furnished us the following exhibit:
Valuation of the city, 1H70 # 4,320,043 00
IVr reut. of tax, 2 or 25 mills.
Hiving a tax of 10*,001 07
To which add 1555 polls g #3, 4.665.00
Making a total tax-of $112,606.07
The above amount is shown as tollows:
State Tax. #29,303 *7
County Tax, 6,*7*.74
$36,1*2 61
Appropriated by City C*$ncll, 7J.4O9.0O
“ r — -—#109.591 61
Fractional overlay, $$,074 46
Fewer is granted the Assessor* to add not
exceeding fire per cent, to tbe amount railed.
Last year the per cent, of tax wa* twenty
mill* and nine-tenth* of a mill. We
have gained hi valuation »ince laityear about
$34,000, but will fall *hort of the valuation
put upon the .city by the Commissioner*, to
the amount of $5CO,000. Notwithstanding
this unjust valuation to which the city was
doomed after a fair one had beea re
turned by the proper authorities, we are still
in the percentage of our tax far below that of
many other town* and cities. The Assessors
hare laburcd assiduously, and although dis
charging an extremely delicate duty, we think
that the result of their labors will be satis
factory to the tax-paying community. The
tax is certainly lighter than we have had rea
son to expect.
A sermon was preached on Tuesday evening
in St. Mark’s church in this city, by Bishop
Nealley, appropriate to the exhibition and ex
amination exercises of St. Catharine’s Hull.
The sermon was addressed to the young ladies
of the school who were present and occupied
seats in the body of the church. The Bishop's
text was in the tenth chapter of Luke’s Gos
pel, at the 311th Terse : “And she had a sister
called Mary which also sat at Jesus' feet, and
heard his word.” lie (aid that it was true of
Christ that he was a man of sorrows, with no
place which he could call hts home. Bat in
the latter part of his ministry' there was at
least one household where he was always wel
come, one hearthstone that was ever warm
and glowing for Him. The characteristics of
the members of the household were brought
out. Martha, the head of the household, is
frequently described as a worldly-minded per
son. She was not so. Jesus loved her and
she received Him into her house. She was
the first to go out to meet Him when the
household was in distress. Her words on that
occasion did not exhibit selfishness. But
while Martha served, Mary sat at Jesus' feet.
Martha was careful to serve Jesus. Both were
honoring the guest. There is another side of
religion as distinguished from the active side.
We may not only serve Jesus by active works,
but also by drinking in his words. The Bishop
affectionately impressed the thought upon the
young ladies before him that they must sit at
the feet of Jesus if they would truly learn of
Him. This school has been established as a
Christian school, where the pupil shall sit at
the feet of Jesus. We should never forget
that He is the Eternal Word through which
all knowledge comes. While from this source
cornea all knowledge, there are certain things
to be learned directly from Him. He is the
“Word, the Truth and the Life," the only
Savior from eternal and hopeless misery. He
is the renovator of our nature; i* alone capa
ble of bestowing happiness; the Reconciler
who gives peace; the Great Physician to heal
our spiritual infirmities; the Good Shepherd,
who gathers the lambs into llis bosom and
sweetly lends them into green pastures and
beside still wafers. These are the lessons to
be drank in while sitting at the feet of Jesus.
We learn, too, that Ha la our only pure Ex
emplar, taught not only by hia word* but by
his life. We leant the value of s*If-sacrifice,
that happinaas ja.gained by forgetting and de
nying self. We are led through the vale of
Humility to seek the good of others. Wu
leant the lesson of meekness aud gentleness,
qualities generally despised by men as incom
patible with true manliness. Christ has said,
“Blessed are the meek." Are men seeking
their blesiings by this channel ? To sum up
all in one word, we are taught the reality of
character. Not that woman should become
versed only in the arts of worldly life, but
that she should possess that grace of charac
ter that is real and depends upon the religion
of Jesus. An assumed grace becomes repug
mint^ The inner life must send forth the
flowers that are beautiful in the home circle
and in the walks ol life. The school would
send forth its pupils with minds well trained—
! women able to think for themselves—but
above all, it would send forth true Christian
women, with the ability to beautify home as
the borne at Bethany was graced by her who
sat at Jesus’ feet. Those who day by day
have led these pupils to the fountain ot knowl
edge have not done so for mere professional
or mercenary motives, but have been actuated
by Christian principles. Their reward will be
found in the faithfulness of those who have
been under their charge. He trusted that
they would ever be taught of Christ, and at
last be welcomed to the eternal mansions of
rest. The Bishop was assisted in the opening
and closing services by his brethren in the
clergy from abroad who were in the city for
the purpose of attending the exercises at St.
Catharine's Hall.
The {raduating exercises took place yes
terday afternoon, at the Hall, according to the
following programme:
1. Music.
4. Overtun—“Mn"«snlella.” (4 hands.! Misses
I.erned and Dixon. Aubcr.
3. Prayer.
4. Chorus—o.Iov, .Toy, Freedom tools'.from

5. Composition.—Little Tilings.

7. Piano Solo— “Homel Sweet Honef Miss M.
Simonds. Tlialberg.
S Composition—Women of History,

10. Solo and (diorus—From "L’Klisire D'Amore.”
Miss I.erned and < lass. Donizetti.
H. Composition—Tlie Record of the Rocks.
12. Conferring ig Diplomas.
13. Parting Song—GraduatingClass. I.I.. Ensign.
14. Doxologv.
15. Benediction.
We shall not undertake to give a synopsis
of the essays. They were all very fine and
on practical subject", dealing with matter of
fact and incidents of history. Perhaps we
may he allowed to say that the composition on
“The Record of the Rocks’” was superior.
As the teachers refused to give the names of
the fair writers we know not whom we are
commending in making the statement. The
compositions were read hy Mr. Bridge and
tlie Rev. Mr. Upjohn, and although both gen
tlemen are excellent readers, there would
have been an added interest to the occasion
had the writers stood with manuscripts in
hand and themselves uttered the thoughts
which they had pul upon paper.
The music, both vocal and instrumental,
showed that that part of the educational couse
at St. Catharine’s had been well sustained.
The ceremony »f conferring the degrees
u pon the graduating class, was performed in
an impressive manner by Bishop Ncalley. who
presided during the exercises. The following
young ladies received diplomas :
Mary J. Houdlette, Richmond.
Alberta Wolhaupter, Portland.
Susie P. Clement, Portland.
Harriet J. Dixon. Dainariscotta.
Catharine Murdoch. Portland.
Emma J. XValker, Augusta.
AnnaJ. Perry, Gardiner.
After these interesting exercises the Bishop
complimented tlie school and its management
in the highest terms, lie did not like hoard
ing schools; thought them poor places for
pure girls; hut he was sure from a close in
spection of St. Catharine's, that a young lady
was as safe within its walls as anywhere out
side of tlie influence of the best ot homes.
The course of study was equal to the best
schools of its class in the country. He hoped
that the graduates would do much to help the
school forward in its work.
The parents of the graduating class were
generally present, as well as friends of the
school in the city and elsewhere. Ti e Misses
Bridges who have charge of the school, were
congratulated on the success of their labors.
There are now at the school 34 hoarders and
25 day scholars, with a prospect of an in
crease at the commencement of the fall term
in September, which will necessitate more
room. This the Trustees will provide, and
the school, which is situated in one of the
most beautiful spots in Maine, will be blessed
with continued prosperity.
In the evening there was a brilliant recep
tion at the Hall, numerously attended.

. For the Public.
Opposite (he Post Office,
These Machines, by their simplcfty, durability,
and the great range of work they* execute,
have gained 3 reputation truly
The famous success of the STNOFlt MANUFACTUR
ING Company has stimulat* d many other com
panies to put forth all their energies and talents to
produce a sewing machine that would eclipse or
equal tlie singer, but in even-ease they have sig
nally tailed, a.i is plainly shown by the fact, that of
all the travelling agents—“runners or drummer*”
—of other companies, none have the aHHurariee to
claim more than an equality w ith the singer, even
upon any special class of w ork.
There’are many sew ing machines, now ottered fo
the public. t liMt Pave their good pmuts. and are of
! much assistance to the housewife and the industri
ous senm-tress. Parties purr ha sing ft «rwing ma
chine of uny soil, And the improvement on the «>ki
fashioned way of sewing by hand so great and
pleasing, that they are naturally, but erroneously,
fed to belie* e that they ha* <• the best, until the spell
is broken by the introduction of the Singer of 1F70
into a neighbor's family, which is sure, by the iu
erca-ed rapidity and ease w ith w hich it does every
kind of plain or fancy sewing, to awaken them to a
positive, although it may be silent acknowledge
ment. of the painful truth that there are very many
varieties of work that are easily executed upon tli’g
Singer, biff that they must either be cditttnt to
wiffntnt, of eYHiango, at a heavy j>efiumai*y shen
tice, their cm vcd-needled, frail-powered, unrelia
ble tensioned, low -speeded or ravel-stitched ma
chine for Singer Sew Family Machine.
Various expedients are resorted to. that the pub
lie eye rimy be turned from the .'singer lor the pur
pose’ of introducing inferior machines—viz, “The
Button-Hole Dodge,” “The Over-Seaming,” “The
1 >ou ble-J.ock-K md-Stitch,” “Elastic Mitch,” “Twitt
ed Loop,”“Self-AdjustingTensions,”44 High Finish
and Be tutifully Ornrmented.” “Strught NuwllcF
“Stiteh-Alike-on-both-Sides,” “Medals from Fairs,”
“Vertical Feed Bars’” “Noiseless Running,” “.Si
lent Feed,” and !;i-t and worst of all the low-priced
—“Family Shuttle Machines.”
Many of these points are desirable, (and the
Singer excel]* ull iu each individual speciality) but
the greatest use made of these special point*, it* by
the retail agent who parade- them before the inex
perienced purchaser with such fluent and earnest
style, ns to entirely divert attention from the really
important bearing’s of the cnee. While other inno
cent local agents ignoruuth represent that the. ma
chine sold by them is capable of doing every fftrie
tv of work, equal to the Singer, and often’do they
thus unconsciously -windlc customer!* w ho cannot
afford to squander their substance upon gilded
follies and worthless rattle-trap*.
Parties in quest of a Sewing Machine should look
about them amt learn what machine is most exten
sively used in families, tailor shop*, shoe factories,
and carriage factories, ft is anv*ttkmb*fged fact,
freely admitted by at! sewing machine dealers, that
tm>i > Lhun tuo-thinU of Utt the clothing worn in this
country by bt th sej tM, irJulher ('ssetom made or ready
made, is actually manufactured upon Till; SINGER
sewing Machine.
These Machine* are manufactured by one of the
oldest, strongest, and most enterprising Compan
ies that has ever been engaged iu the business in
the world. Throughout their immense manufac
tories. which are kept in constant operation “day
and night,” none but highly skilled mechanics are
employed. Newly improved machinery i* em*
I ployed turning out each part iluished to that me
chanical exactness, that every one is a perfect du- *
plicate, of the other in size, weight and finish. All
new in volitions, arc carefully examined and tested,
and if approved, ore adopted, regardless of ex
pense. while the many impractlcjd humbugs that
are patented, are left to grace some new wonder
and learn the purchaser when too late, that he ha*
“paid too dear for his whistle.” It should be re
membered that the Singer Manufacturing Com
pany has never made a poor Machine—from tho
very first twenty-odd years ago. They never buy
editorial notices, or expend fund* in “log-rolling” ’
at Fairs to gain medal* or premium*.
They simply make their Muchinos a* valuable a*
money and science can perfect them—place them
iu their Sales Rooms, and leave the public to find
«>ut their virtues in their own way. By this straight
forward course they are now manufacturing about
four hundred per day, and at that rate, even, are
unable to supply the demand.
