“Omer ” said he to him. “for your sake,
I forgive’him. The probity of a Turk is more solid than stone. Let that Jew un derstand thoroughly what a tribunal is. and also the sentence of a Cadi." And the Jew paid the Cadi thirty purses. The latter invited him afterward to em brace Oilier. “And to put an end to this after, I am going,” said he, "to enter it on the great book.” , After having kissed the Judge s shoes, and the carpet under him. the two parties thanked him for his equitable sentence and ] paternal goodness, and left the tribunal. One door closed, another opened. The true Cadi entered, splitting his sides with laughter. *‘Bv rav bpaitl* woman, I £66 nothing in the books wiser than you ! If you were a man, in truth, there would be no ( adi equal to vou in Constantinople.” Meria thanked him for his kindness to her in yielding his own seat, and ofTeied him fifteen purses of the Jew’s money*. The Cadi refused, and gave her one! more purse. She kissed the flap of liis coat, thanked him, left the tribunal and returned home before Omer, who had stopped at the coffee house. On seeing him arrive from her window, she began to jest. “Ah! ah! here is Omer with his tongue cut off,” said she, stammering like. “You are mistaken,” said Omer. She, pretending astonishment, asked him ; “What has happened then ?” "God and the wise Cadi (he is as hand some as an apple, God keep him from all harm!) have saved me and fooled the Jew.” “Is the Cadi handsomer than I ?” re* plied Meria, showing him the JO purses. Omer wept for joy, and thrice kissed the brow of his skillful spouse. Seeing how wise she was, lie loved her three times more than before; lie listened to her good advice, attended closely to his business, and acquired great riches. .

The rulers in the democratic camp have now been for more than two weeks vigor ously beating the bush to liml some indi vidual who is willing to become bait on their hook, that peradventure, gudgeons may swallow and be drawn into their game-bag. The essential qualification such an individual must possess, is—he must not be a democrat. They have not yet succeeded in discovering any such as piring martyr. The difficulty is they ask too much; they offer to merely swallow one republican, and demand of such re publican that he swallow their whole nau seous concern. Such illilierality won't succeed. A letter written in Bath to the Lewiston Journal, refers to our nominee as follows: “The nomination of Hon. Sidney l’er hatn as our standard bearer meets witli genera) favor in this section, and none m»/e cordially endorse the nomination than the many friends of Gen. S. F.

James O’Neill was hung last Sunday night on Brown's Bridge, nine miles from Denver, | by unknown parties. A placard was attached to the body with the inscription of “Cattle Thief’ upon it. General Howard has written a letter se verely commenting on the conduct of the white cadets at West Point toward the color ed cadet; he says significantly; “If West Point has not power enough to protect such a young man ns cadet Smith—quick, able, hon est, noble-spirited us he is—then West Point will have a hard struggle against the return ing tide of feeling that will hreak in from the people.” It is very trying, after yoa have stated on oath your opinion,—supposing you are a landlady,—that a certain corpse is that of one of your lodgers; and after it is buried, witli a verdict of suicide, and you’ve overhauled his trunk, and settled with the Coroner, and made up your mind to the loss, to have the man himself, six months afterward, call in upon you and deny the fact. Vet such was the case in Springfield, Mass., one day last week, and although the landlady has pretty nearly gone crazy about it, Anton Ethinger, the lodger in question, insists that lie was never a corpse, and neither the Coroner nor any one else can for the life of him say who it was that was buried as Anton Ethinger last winter. A Washington correspondent says : Our i new Police court under Judge Snell of Maine, ; organized and began business Monday morn ing.

COMM rlXCEMEST AT BOWDOIX COL LEGE. The Close of fommrncrmfDl Week. Bri nswick, July 14, 1&70. Class Reinion. The class of ’66 held a reunion at the Ton tine Hotel last evening. A grand supper was prepared for them by tbe famous proprietor of the house, Mr. II. B. l’inkham. The meet ing broke up about 12 o’clock with loud cheers. Class Day. The morning opefied bright and fair. A large crowd of both young and old arrived in town on the early trains. The hotels are con sequently crowded to overflowing. Among the arrivals at the Tontine are lion. Win. I’. Frye, Hon. John A. l’oor and a host of other celebrities. Mr. Pinkham has provided (or them in the best manner, and his tables afford a display of every delicacy which the market affords. This morning the Phi Beta Kappa Fraternity held their annual meeting at Adam's Hall when several new members from the present graduating class were elected. After the meeting the Alumni formed in procession and were escorted to the church by the Ger mania. after which they listened to an address by Prof. W. fit. Barbour of Bangor, which was in every respect a line effort. Afternoon Session. ' Before the hour of two, the Congregation al church was again filled to "its utmost ca capacity by an audience who were eager to hear the oration and poem. The oration was delivered by Wm. K. Spear of Rockland, subject “Power.” He said that power was the attribute of every existence and illustra ted its presence in the works of Nature. He combatted the naturalistic idea that man was evolved from nature. Said that nature was but the necessary condition to life, holding the same relation to it that the material ob ject does to the sight. Take away nature and there could be no life. Take away the material object and there could be no sight. Yet neither one creates the other. Each is virtually dependent upon the other. Each is entirely different from the other. Said that physical grography did not exert a perma nent influence upon man, illustrated by ref erence to the condition of China. Said na ture was controlled by physical forces, brutes were guided by blind instinct, but man had power to govern himself, and as he has this power he is not dependent on circum stances. Said that it was man’s duty to de- I velop himself, and that development consist ed in being true to God, true to his fellow man and true to himself. The oration was j an able and scholarly effort. Next in order came the Poem by A. G. Whitman ot Auourn. we give me iohow ing beautiful extracts: Four years we’ve meet within yon classic walls : Here on the closing scene the curtain falls. Through labyrinthic shades we’ve sought the light, l util upon our vision lair and bright. With mingled hues auroral beau tic* dawn, And robed in light, the ro?*y-tinge red morn Dispels the shadows from the Eastern skies, And tints the clouds with rich Vermillion dyes. With a-pirations high we sought the palm, And Time, with bu>y hand, dispelled the charm, Till on the common earth «e walk again,— Seniors with students, Freshmen still with men. The Poet next refers to the Court of Jus tice, where punishment was often meted out to Freshmen : Old days om^more we pass in swift review. And many curious scenes again renew. The gloomy hall of Justice we recall. The frowuing rostrum and the blackened wall; Hope, axe and pulley, blanket, pail and horn, The ghastly, grim ami ghostly skeleton. * * * * * * * A stern decree the hoary judge imparts, And many gentle hands and heavy hearts Surround the culprit, and inspired by dread He takes a queer position on his head ; When m the name of father, son and daughter. Into his trowsefs leg they pour the water. * ******* j Alas! that solemn court is known no more, And its impressive walls are whitewashed o’er. And Freshmen now are trooping unconcerned, wiicre once our altar fires with iucense burned. Our Lares and Fenates sought no more,-— Our pride and glory in the days of yort— To dark and secret places have been borne, Their power departed, and their glory gone. The following passage has reference to tin* expulsion of several students during the past term on account of class troubles : But there were others, brave and noble boys, Who loved to blow a horn and make a noise. Or spill a pail of water so ’twould hit A loud-mouthed Freshman loafing under it — But these were foibles and we’ve yet to learn, That ’twas expedient or just to spurn Our earnest efforts and t«. sternly send. Them to an exile that will never end. Just at whose door the ghastly plunder lies. We don’t assume to say, ’twoulu be unwise. There’s rottenness in Denmark, and we pray That Time and Fire may purge the filth away. * * * * * * * * * At length our college years are passed away, Their hopes and liieir’cndearing memories,’ Their disappointments and their sad regrets, Are graven on the tablets of the past. Records that ever seem to stand above The grave of Time,—sad monuments. As o’er the buried past to-day we chant The requiem of four more years, Tombed with the countless ages gone before. How fitting then that in their memory We raise a monument, and sculpture there The epitaph. These days can never die. As pass away the swiftly hurrying years, Let each its impress leave upon the mind. Thus being wedded to a deathless spirit, The dying years in turn will live again. *'* • * * * * * But as the crimson hues of Autumn tinge The forest leaves with beauty lovlier fur Than art can give or genius can conceive, A transient beauty yet surpassing all The charms bright spring or joyous summer boasts,, .So let us hope that these our early days, May to u rosy twilight sweetly melt. After the above exercises at the church the erowd despersed to the Old Oak Tree, where the concluding exercises of the day, consist ing of Class Chronicles, Prophecy, Parting Address, and other ceremonies were given. The chronicles were delivered by J. W. Keene, of Bremen. From the same we glean the following Statistic#.

J For the Journal. RECOLLECTION'S OF .1011X HURRA Y. In a late number of the Gospel Banner, j Isaac Wheeler of Amherst, known as Father j Wheeler, who died recently at the age of 91, was spoken of as having been tho last man ; living who had seen and heard the Rev. John Murray. In the Springfield Republican he is alluded to in the same way. This is a mis take. As Mr. Murray is held in reverence by a large sect in this country, as the first promul gator of their peculiar doctrines here, it may not be uninteresting to state, that my father, Nathan Weston, heard him preach in Boston frequently. This was at various times when my father was in Boston, between fifteen and twenty-three years «f age, and staying at the ; house of Mr. John Fillebrown, a brother of j the late Col. Thomas Fillebrown. He was \ also introduced to him when he was calling upon Mr. Fillebrown, who was one of his parishioners ; and lie remembers Mr. Murray’s saying very impressively, during that visit. “O, that men were wise, that they understood j this, that they would consider their hitter 1 end 1” He also saw him at the Grand Lodge, j where he was treated with great attention. He lias a lively recollection of him, and says his person now presents itself to his imagina tion as strongly as that of any one he ever knew ; and that he was a man to be remem bered. My father at first recalled him to his mind as one not so old as he finds he must have been at the period when he saw him; and he accounts for this by saying, that his i appearance indicated great vigor, in conse i quenee of which he seemed younger than he was. He further describes liini as eloquent, and preaching without notes in a strong, pow erful voice. L. M. Divuisox. Domestic Nctos. The eastern section of the State is jubilant over the result of the boat race, which has taken place on the St. Croix river between the four-oared crews of the St. Stephen, N. B., and Calias, Me., rowing clubs. The i crews engaged had previously rowed upon \ the Fourth of July for a purse offered by the ! city of Calias, upon which occasion the Amer ican crew easily won. The Knglisli crew im i mediately challenged the victorious crew to row tlu'iu upon the morning of the 7th over u three mile course. The Americans again won. The men composing the latter | crew were Charles Davidson (stroke), John Whiteneck, John Wallace, George Davidson (bow.) Intelligence comes of the death of Capt. John Curtis of Brunswick, at Bermuda, July 3d, of typhoid fever. The sad intelligence reached his home after his wife had left to join her husband, having heard of his sick ness. Capt. Curtis was one of the. most prominent ship-masters of Brunswick, and universally esteemed. A correspondent of the Whig says YVater ville has reason to feel proud of her institu tions of learning. With the University and Institute situated in the village with an excel lent system of public schools, none of her children need grow up in ignorance. Vet it is a disgraceful fact, that a large proportion of the children of foreign parentage can nei rcad nor write. Scores and even hundreds of these children are growing from childhood to manhood under the very shadows of these institutions who will never take the first step towards enlightenment, whose education will be rather in the school of intemperance and evil. This fact, alas, is apparent in many towns. We see it stated that a number of small pieces of gold have recently been taken from Sandy river, just below the falls at New Shar on. by Mr. II. H. Beard. That there is gold in the river at that place has long been I known, as small particles have been picked lip by several individuals at different times; but whether it can be obtained in quantities sufficient to pay for milling lias not yet been ascertained. The editor of the Maine Farmer saw re cently in the bands of one of our Augusta merchants, a two dollar bill on the Kennebec Bank, Hallowed, which 'failed' as i( was then called, now known as •‘suspended." nearly fifty vears ago. The bill is dated Oct. i, ]S24. is payable to A. Nourse, and signed by ,1. Bohinson, 4'ashler, and 1). Y\ . Warren. President. It is very much worn. The Whig says Timothy Wall's boy. aged nine years, stole 873 from a bureau in bis father's house in Bangor and went on "a good time" with it, buying'all sorts of knick kaeks. hiring horses. ,Ac. He distributed it liberaljy among his companions, as a preven tative from exposure. A policeman recover ed 823 of the money. We are glad to be able to congratulate our friends, the publishers of the Daily Kennebec Journal, upon the successful results of their enterprise. The paper lias been published six months, has proved itself a public and business necessity, and may now be regarded as an established institution of our city. We hope it will continue to receive a liberal and paying support.—Maine Farmer. The American says the North Ellsworth Farmer's Club will hold their first exhibition at Tyler's Hall.
