The firm of Ballard & Chase has been dis solved, Mr. Chase retiring. Mr. Ballard will contkutc the business, and we trust will pros per highly, as be deserves. Mr. Chase, we understand, luu besom* connected with the firm of I’arrott & Bradbury, dealers in grain and coal, and we hope he will find his new business both pleasant and profitable. Ninleen car-loads of cattle sheep and lambs were shipped from Augusta yesterday. The former are not quite equal in quality to those shipped last week. Of the latter there are four car-loads; about double the number of last weak, and we should think of a better quality, as prices last week were a little lower. We hope this week will afford an ac tive market, higher prices, and quicker sales. Messrs. John H. Hartford, James A. Bicknel' and J. W. Clapp with their families, returned to their homes in this city Saturday after noon, from a fortnight's sojourn at Boothbay Harbor. Those of the party, who have been reported as being ill, are liow rapidly conva lescing. They were all highly pleased with their entertainment at the Weymouth House. HaUswslI Itrws. The office of the Saturday Gaaette has been removed to the South end of the Hallowell House Block. It now has a neat and com modious office. A new dry goods firm has just been formed in Hallowell,—that of E. J. Hersey and C. C. Huat, under the name of Hersey & Hunt, successors to E. J. Hersey & Co. Success to them. A letter lias been received by D. C. Knight of this city written by Frank VV. Call of Richmond, containing the details of th? sui cide of Walter W. Goff, master of the ship “Laurens,” while on the trip from San Fran cisco, to Coquimbo, Chili. C’apt. Guff shot himself through the bead, in his cabin, May 19th, while in lat. 27 I0J south, ion. 117, &9°. lie left a letter bidding an affectionate farewell to his officers and erew„and consign ing the ship to the care of his first mate, Frank W. Call. He also left a letter direc ted to his father, brother and the lady to whom he was engaged to be married. His friend live in New York. Mr. Call arrived safely with his ship at Coquimbo, June 11th, the day the letter from which we gather these facts was mailed. The “Laurens," is a Ken nebunk-bailt vessel, of S08 tons, and belongs principally to the lather of the deceased. IsUes 9*8111 by rslisa. We learn that on Saturday Mrs. Francis l’aul, of Boston who was visiting at the home of her , mother, Mrs. Jane Call, in Gardiner, died very suddenly at about noon. She had gen e for the purpose of making a call to the house o< j Mr. John Buker, where she was immediacy , taken with convulsions, and before medical j assistance could be obtained, expired in great agony. The circumstances seemed to war- j rant the summoning of a jury of inquest, and 1 W. H. Libby, Esq., of this city, attended, j who deemed an inquest unnecessary, as it was plainly apparent that the deceased h®d acci dently taken an over-dose of laudanum. Dr. C. Whitmore, who was present a few mo ments after death had occured, was likewise of the opinion that she had taken an over dose of the poison to which she was much ad dicted. She had been in Gardiner about six weeks; her health had been in an impaired : state since her arrival. Her age was twenty three years and eleven months. She leaves a husband in Boston. Itaple’s Doable Acting Tnrblae Water Wheel. This is an improvement on Water Wheels for which letters patent have lately been granted at Washington to Mr. J. H. Staples of Wells, Me. The patentee claims that in many imporiant particulars bit wheel possess es advantages over any other now in exist ence, particularly in regard to back voter, the quantity of voter required, liability to freezing up, Ac. He has already put several in operation to the entire satisfaction of those who ordered them; and has orders for, and is now putting in, more wheels for parties in Kennebunk and in the vicinity of Skowhe gan. As Maine is well supplied with water power, and is fast utilising it for manufactur ing purposes, in its various branches, Mr. Staples must reap a rich reward for his inven tion, and contribute to the general interests ot this and other states by its introduction.

He has been a member of the Brotherhood nearly half a century, having taken the degree of Master Mason in 1821, in Gardiner. In 1822 lie took the Chapter degrees in Hallo well, and in 1827 the Encampment degrees. Mr. Vigoreaux left EaureDt, France, sixty three years ago for this country, where he married, settling in the Kennebec Valley. Before leaving his native land he was master sailmaker in the French fleet, commanded by Jerome Bonaparte, which went to Martinique and St. Domingo. Mr. Vigoreaux was sta tioned on the Admiral's ship, a three-decker, and the largest battle ship at that time ever built in France. During the engagement that took place at St, Domingo between the French and English fleets Mr. V. was slightly wounded. Until within a few years his hair had not turned gray. Mr. Vigoreaux had not seen a day of severe sickness since stepping his foot on American soil. He will be buried to-day at three o’clTt P. M., by Maine Commandery No. 1, of which he has been a member for thirteen years. Bnrial of a Mason. Mr. John Kogers, formerly a teamster in the employ of Kichards * Co., paper manu facturers, and a member of Herinon Lodge No. 32 Free Masons, was buried Sunday with the usual masonic ceremonies at the house and grave.

He said the society had nearly incurred the debt of $7,000 in repairing their church, &c., but that they had reduced the debt to $2,500, and that they were^ there to cancel the church's indebtedness, and to raise something for the Murray fund. Third, Several speakers were present, of which Hon. E. F. Pillsbury of Augusta, and Mrs. M. A. Livermore of Boston, were the principals, both speaking very eloquent for the cause.

A General Engagement CIobo at Hand. EVACUATION OF ROME BY THE FRENCH TROOPS. I Paris. Aug. 1. The Emperor on Saturday inspected the Second Carps, stationed at St. Aveid. Mar shal Bazaine commands that line keeping the Prussiads in cheek before Mayence and Cob lentz. The flower of the French Army. 280,000 strong, are concentrated between Forbach and Strasburg. It is expected that the campaign will open with a great movement, which will be made on the side of Strasburg in the direction of South Germany. The health and spirits of the French forces are reported good. Despatches state that the Emperor’s head quarters to-night are at St. Aveid, near the frontier. This indicates that a general en gagement is close at hand. The I’resse says that there has been no fighting on the Rhine, as rumored. The advance post of the Bavaria troops has fallen back upon the Santee river. Several Prussian scouting parties have lately crossed the Soar. Their movements were plainly seen hy the French, and it is thought that the Prussian force is not so great in that neighborhood as at first sup posed. The Journal Official to-day has informa tion going to show that the sympathy of the people of the Daunbian principalities, are heartily with France. Tile Publico says that the French govern ments have contracted for a cable between Calais and some point in Jutland. Den.nark, in order that the operations of the Baltic may be reported to and directed from the cap ital. The Presse thinks that the Prince of Wales now in Copenhagen, sympathizes with Den mark in her complaints against Prussia. The Emperor has thanked the railroad ] companies for the celerity and prudence with which they have transported troops to the frontier. A council of ministers will meet three times a week at St. Cloud, and the Empress will preside over the deliberations. The son of Adncl Kailer has asked per mission of the Emperor to enlist in a regi ment of Turcos. The French war department lias pre-emp torilv denied the request of Captain More of the British Navy, a id an attache oi Me British legation in Paris, to visit the navy yaid at Cherbourg, intimating that Ins object is to take notes of the fortifications, work I shops and fleets. Orders have been promulgated in Paris to the effhet that the enemy’s private property be respected in Germany. Then* is a bitter fei ling on the Bourse against tlie German bunkers. They ate ac cused of sending t pc cm to Prussia. .- .i - ■ i. .i j- . . ...--.. r. -- Berlin, Aug. 1. King William left for the fhmt at six o'clock last evening.

Belgium is taking formidable steps for the i maintenance of her Dationalty. The Bel ! gium army of observation of the East has taken up a position on the great military high road, from Liege to Aix la Chapelle. London, Aug. 1. i At the Ministerial banquet on Saturday i night, Mr. Gladstone and Sec’y Cardwell de j clared that the army and navy of England ; were in an efficient condition for war, but the i government trusted in its ability to maintain ! an absolute neutrality. ■ The Puke of Augustinburg is serving as a [ general in the Bavarian army, and the Puke I of Nassau has accepted a position on tho | stall' of the Crown Prince of Prussia. Florence, Aug. 1. The negotiation* between Italy and France I for the withdrawal of the French troops from Italian soil has been brought to a satisfactory conclusion. The Italian government has I guaranteed tha preservation of order in Home, and the French troops have evacuated the : city. i It is asserted that the Pope has been ad i vised by some to go to Malta, and by others i to remain in Home, and it seems that he has decided to stay. The Homan police seized a quantity of arms which were se creted in the city. Madrid, Aug. 1. Captain General Pc Kodas has asked for 14,000 reinforcements for Cuba. In view of this demand some of the Journals urge the government to consider seriously the condi tion of the Island. The French Cabinet made an explanation of the recent expressions regarding Spain to Senor Olozoga, which is considered satisfac tory. FROM PORTLAND. Portland, Aug. 1. Railroad Accident.
