Damariscotta, Thursday Evening, “ “ THE WORKWOMEN'B PARTY. The appeals of democrats to the work ingmen of the country are not encourag ing to their party. We see that a meeting of the General Committee of the Work ingmen’s Union of New York, held last week, adopted an address attributing to the democracy the hardships of the work ingmen and favoring a union with repub licans. There are other movements of the same kind, going to show that working men are thinking and preparing to act. That party which favors the building up of home manufactures, to give employment to home labor and build up our home markets, improving the common school so that the poor man's child can be edu cated as well as the rich man's is the party to which the workingman is bound by in terest. The workingmen of the country never received so much for their labor as now, never had more comfortable homes, or were more independent. In old demo cratic times a laborer was glad to work for twenty-tive cents a day, and if his children learned to read it was more by their own exertions than from tire advantages of the common schools. Now the laborer's chil dren may receive a good education In all branches of study necessary to tit them for business, and in the cities and large towns the common schools are as good as acade mies. It is not merely the growth of the idea that a man is a man, whether ho be black or white, or works with a pickaxe or a pen, but the stamping out of the old no tion that manufactories would grow and villages and business increase without any assistance, that has had much to do with the beueilts uud'prit ileges which laboring men enjoy. The republican party grew up upon the principle that a man is a man, no matter what his color or occupation, and that the laborer should call no man master, but own himself and have all he could earn. Its competitor was the democratic party. Toe republican parly has pursued a lib eral policy for the encouragement of man ufactures, railroads, schools, in order that through the increase of these labor might thrive and the country become prosperous. During its existence nearly all our rail roads have been constructed, and their rapid extension is due to the aid afforded them by the republican party. The demo cratic party lias no objection to railroads, but always has been found objecting to necessary measures to build them. Jhe same principle holds good in their ease as to factories and education, The republican party has favored the laborer in regard to taxation, Hoth the tariff and internal revenue tax havo been so adjusted as to fall as much upon proper ty as possible. The last Congress refused to remove the income tax, although they reduced and modified it, because it falls upon the wealthy chiefly. Hut while re taining the income tax and keeping up the tax on spirituous liquors and luxuries, taxes which the rich must pay, they regarded the laborer, who uses and needs as much tea, coffee, and sugar in the family as any other class, and reduced the duties upon those articles. Throughout the farming districts of the State of Maine there never was so much prosperity as now. Farmers never were so clear of debt, or had so much working capital or money in bank or securities. Everything they produce commands cash and a good price. In democratic times they had no market, no money, and were ten times more embarrassed to pay their taxes than in these times, and even with the war debt upon their shoulders would not go back to the aforesaid democratic times on any account. Let them compare prices themselves, compare comforts and conveniences, education and general pros perity, and see how greatly the result fa vors the present. We don't ask them to take our statement, but depend upon the abundance of facts which they have in their knowledge and possession. Let the farmers and laborers of Maine do as the workingmen of New York are. doing—give their support to the republi can party. MR. PILLSBURY TROUBLED. Mr. E. F. Fillsbury publishes in the Stan dard au article of two columns over Ins own signature in reply to certain questions asked him in the Journal. The article was presented to us for publication, but on ac count of its length and curious character, we declined to publish it. The history ot Mr. Fillsbury during the war is written with his own pen in other characters and paragraphs than those presented in the queer collection of clippings and comments in the Standard. We wish from the bot tom of our heart he were able to make out a clear case of honest-hearted devotion to the government, but, alas ! the labor and pains which lie spends only show how dif ficult the task is. When Mr. Fillsbury com plains of us for catechizing a private citi zen, he must remember that lie was Presi dent of the Democratic State Convention, and it was his acting ill that capacity which led to our questions. How long is it since the Standard claimed the right not only to discuss the public acts of one of our citi zens. but to dive down into private and personal affairs? Had wc followed the example of the Standard we should have inquired what Mr. Fillsbury usually has for breakfast, dinner and supper, and whether he sleeps between sheets or blank ets. or keeps a dog, instead of asking a few mild and proper questions about bis war record. The remark’s of the Standard at the close of its article, upon the editors of the Journal, are undoubtedly consider ed by Mr. Fillsbury to be couched in the highest style of journalism, and in accord ance with the must dignified and honorable idea of the editorial profession and frater nity. That may be his opinion, but wo object to being judged by such a depraved standard. The manner in which we are assailed is its best answer, and we leave the public to judge who best deserves the epithets that Mr. Fillsbury sees fit to use, the editors of the Standard or those of the Journal. POLITICAL. Hon. Lot M. Morrill anil Hon. James G. lllaine will address the citizens of Gardi ner, at Johnson Hall this (Friday) evening. The Democracy of the Second Congres sional District have nominated Alvah Black of Paris as a candidate for Congress. The New York Commercial Advertiser recommends ex-Govtrnor Morgan of that Suite for the ministry to England. The Democracy of Ohio opened their campaign in Columbus on Thursday last. Senator Thurman presided over a meeting composed of fifty-seven persons, and Alex. Delmar made a dreary statistical and financial speech to them. The True Georgian says that Gen. Grant will be re-elected to the White House in 1872 by a larger majority than ho received in 18<I8. He is the right roan in the right place, and the South will put out her own eyes should she fail to give him her entire electoral vote in ‘.he coming Presidential contest. The Richmond Enquirer is resolved to force the Democratic name upon the Con servative party ol Virginia,while the Whig, the old anti-Deinocratio organ, insists up on “Conservative.” The State Journal, (Republican,) commenting on the dispute, says:—“The whole thing turns on the Northern elections this fall. If the Re publicans hold their own there, then will the Conservatives in the South seek Re publicanism ; but if the Democracy make telling gains, then the Enquirer will stand at the head of the heap in this section, and the old Democratic leaders will take heart and come boldly out and turn the present leaders out of their usurped places.” There is a strong movement in Pennsyl vania in favor of minority representa tion. The “maimedsoldier” who pours out his complaint in the Standard is probably one of the Kinglield militia. Of course he will vote for General Roberts, if he did not he would fail to be true to the memories of Kinglield. He will be worse “maimed” after election than he is now. Gen. MeClcllan’t income is now larger than than that of Prisfident Grant. L'jcckaiitjt. And to wao hit outgo. THE ARMIES AND THEIR INITIAL MOVEMENTS. Tlie best account which we have seen of the French and Prussian Armies and the initial movements of the campaign in pro gress, is the following from the corre spondence of the. New York Evening Post. It is necessary to understand the follow ing facts, in order to have an intelligent idea of events as they transpire : ‘■For a clearer view of the recent opera tions I will give you the positions ami num bers of tile two armies as they were on the 3d of August, taking the held forces of the, French at the estimated 850,000 or 400,000 and the Germans at 500,000 or 000,000. The supposition is that these numbers are stated too iow on both sides. The French occupied offensive positions close tip to the German^ borders. The French centre, with the head- i quarters at Metz, under the command of Mar shal Bnznine, the commander of the Third army corps, was composed of the Second army corps, under Frossard. (headquarters St. Avoid.) the Fifth army corps, under, Failly. (headquarters Bitche,) and the Sixth array corps, the Imperial Guard, (headquar ters Nancy.) The left wing was composed of the Fourth army corps, under l’Adtnirnult, (lieadqarters Thionville.) The right wing was the First army corps, under MacMahon, (headquarters Strasburg.) The reserve army, the Seventh army corps, under Canrobert. was in Chalons. The six army corps (with out reserves) consisted of 23 infantry and 7 cavalry divisions, in round numbers. 330.000 men. The reserve army numbered 50,000. The French line extended from Sicrk. nort h cast of Thionville on the Moselle, over St. Avoid, Saargemund, Bitche, as tar as Weis senburg, there resting on the Rhine; while MacMahon, in order to protect the upper Rhine, was concentrated at Strasburg, he de tached the division of Douny northward in order to maintain his connection with the great French army. Opposed to these the Germans were divided into three great armies, the northern one, the first, under General von Steinmetz (Herwartli von Bittenfeld had the nominal command), posted on the line Cologne-Coblentz-Maycnce, on the left hank of the Rhine, the troops pushed westward. It consists of the Seventli and Eighth arinv corps, and numbers over a hundred thousand men. The second army, the German centre, un der l’rinee Frederick Carl, stood on the left hank of the Rhine, between Mayence and Mannheim, with a single army corps towards Rhenish Prussia and the Palatinate, close up to the French border. It consists of six army corps. The south or third army, under the Crown Prince of Prussia, consisted of the third and fourth Prussian, the Baden and Wurteniberg army corps, and the Hessian division—one hundred and fitly to two hun dred thousand men. The German lines ex tended from Treves to Speyer, that is, from the upper course of the Moselle to the upper Rhine,' their front being the line of the river Saar, the great hulk of the German army massed in the square made hy the Saar, Moselle and Rhine, as see on the map. The French position possessed great advantages over the German. They were in full railroad communication from the centre, Metz, through Saargemund, Bitche, Hagenau, and the second line Nancy, Thionville and Stras burg; while on the German side railroad connection from Coblentz to Treves was broken, and the French border had to be reached from Coblentz by way of Bingen, and from Mayence over Worms, Neustadt. I.andau. At Ncwstadt the road branches off to Kaiserslauten and joins the Rhine-Xape road atNeunkirch. so that here the connec tion along the front of the German army was uiven. A noticeable fact in the position of the Ger man line was the proximity of the centre to the left wing, anil the apparently isolated position of General von Steintnetz’s first and weakest army ; and the Prussian loss of Saar brucken was. it is now thought, only an at tempt to draw the French armies between the two northen German ones, and since it could not be seen whether the French would make the great attack from Alsace or Lothringia. the two principal armies of the Germans were placed in such a way as to provide lor either event. The French were expected to move on the 6th to the 8th of August, but did not advance beyond the lines of Saarbrucken. The Germans then appear to have quickly decided for the aggressive. First of all it was necessary to makethe corps of McMahon undangerous, since if the Germans entered France from northeast to southwest this corps would have been able to fall upon the left German ilank. This mission fell to the Crown Prince’s army, with what result is known. Division Douay of McMahon’s corps was at Weissenburg, some ten thousand men, against whom the Crown Prince employed, on the 4th about fifty thousand of his best troops. Though well defended the victory was gained at considerable loss. It is still a mystery why McMahon did not hurry troops up to Douay’s aid, since Stras burg is only about thirty miles distant, and the railroad communication was perfect. Seeing Weissenburg lost, McMahon appears to have left Strashurg in all haste northwards, in order to join the main French army, but before he could accomplish his design the Crown Prince’s army attacked hint near Woertli, and though supported by troops from the main army, he was so thoroughly beaten that of his entire army corps of from fifty to sixty thousand men, he has since been able only to gather together some eighteen thou sand I On the same day, and after the Crown Prince had proved his ability to keep McMa hon in check, on the 4th Steinmetz received orders to advance on Saarbrucken. and his victory was accomplished nearly at the same moment as that of the Crown Prince at Wurth. The mission of the second army was evi dently to advance upon Saargemund, in order to break through the French centre; hut Friedrich Carl's movements were too late, and he was unable to come up with the ene my. On the evening of the 6th of August, the French had left their entire border line, and were retreating in all directions, followed by the Prussian cavalry. As I write, the French are forming behind the Moselle, on the line of Thionville, Metz and Nancy, and the Prus sian advance is within ten miles of Metz. Alsace and German Lothringia are now near ly cleared from the French. Some seven thousand men occupy Strashurg. Over ten thousand French have been made prisoners, and immense stocks of provisions, guns, baggage, rifies, have fallen into the hands of the Germans. Three days ago Steinmetz had crossed the Nied, on the road to Metz, Friedrich Carl’s army is marching along the Saar, and the Crown Prince’s army has already passed the upper Saar. Of course it is all over with the French invasion of Ger many now. WAR SPLINTERS. A correspondent says: “What has been said about the frightful effect of the chas sepot bullet does not seem to have been exaggerated, for many of the wounds on the Prussian bodies were horrible to look at. I noticed one man whose whole face was one big wound, a ball having struck him just under the eye and made a hole one might have put one’s list into.” The discipline of the French army is unfavorably mentioned. One writer in speaking of the Zouaves says: “When these marched out of Strasbourg they were more like an armed mob than an or ganized milliary corps. There were hard ly two men of them dressed alike. Some had on their red cloth breeches, some their brown linen ditto f some had white gaiters, some red, some black. As to their march, the only thing I can compare it to is the English House of Commons when the members are summoned to hear the Queen's speech read in the House of Lords. Were you ever present on that occasion ? If so you can hardly have for gotten the undignified shuffling rush of members that takes place, every one doing his best to get to the front. Well, the march of the Zouaves is very much the same.” Besides being inferior in discipline it is now understood that the French have had to fight against superior forces. At Woerth McMahon had but 40,000 effect ive bayonets, while the Pru.-sain force was 160,000. Not very good generalship to fight at such a disadvantage. A subject for conscription writes: “This afternoon the town crier went through the village with his drum, and read a long proclamation informing the happy French people that every one up to 46 was ex pected and indeed bound to go and be a soldier. 1 don't know exactly what will become of me, but when they claim me 1 must go. It is not pleasant, certainly; but then when the country is in danger, and when we have an opportunity of walking in the footsteps of our “fathers" of 1792, and of shouting la Marseillaise as we go, we ought to be pleased. It must not be forgotten, however, that those fathers which we arc told are ours, walk ed cn sabots—Lc bataillon ilc la Moselle cn sabots; you recollect—under Iloche, I be lieve. However, let mo tell you one thing, and that is that the Frenchman who a month ago said they should be at Berlin in a fortnight, in fact all Frenchmen are now glad to say, ‘We are greatly in want of a stupendous victory to set us tip.’ ” GENERAL NEWS. Jenny Lind and Florence Nightingale are among the London committee for the relief of the sick and wounded in the Franco-Prus sian war. Three things principally determine the quality of a man—the leading object which he proposes to himself in life, the manner in which he sets about accomplishing it, and the effect which success or failure has upon him. There has been launched at Wilmington, Del., an iron side-wheel steamer, the Wy anoke, 25 hundred tons burthen, and with sixty state-rooms, which is the largest iron merchant ship ever built in this country. Col. John Hay has arrived, and has resign ed the office of the Secretary of Legation at Madrid. The Spanish Government at the time of his departure had not assented to the proposition of this Government fora commis sion to sit in Washington to adjust the ques tions growing out of the complications in Cuba. “What do you tlijnk of our rifles?” said the King of Prussia to Gen. Bourbaki, of the French Zouaves, when he was in Berlin, after the war of 18G6. “Well,” he replied. It will depend on the men who are before them.” Within the last few years the progress of religious enlightenment throughout the East has been very great. Forty years ago a com plete copy of the Old Testament could not be found in Jerusalem. At the present time there are twenty-four Protestant schools in Palestine, in which one thousand children are taught the Bible. domestic ISTetos. The Bangor Whig chronicles three acci dents : Wm. Margerson, Esq. of Bangor was thrown from a buggy on Wednesday, his ribs fractured near the spine, and his whole sys tem affected by the concussion. Mr. Moore of Brewer, while at work on a schooner, was prostrated to the ground by a block falling upon his head from the rigging, and consider ably injured. Mr. Aaron Ingalls of Bangor has been brought home from the woods suffer ing with a wound from a broad axe. Andrew Armour of Ellsworth, sixty-three years old, challenges any man in the State to walk with him around the course at Bucks port, and repeat. The trial to take place at the next Fair of the Hancock Agricultural Society in Bucksport, and the challenged to have twenty dollars if he wins. --- A young lady proposes to attend Foxcrofit Academy the ensuing term and “work her board.” A friend remonstrating with her, against this plan, and assuring her that she would not be able to give proper attention to her studies, she replied that she should only take up thirteen branches! We learn that the contract for construction of the extension of the Maine Central Rail road from Danville Junction has been award ed to Straw, Patterson &. Co., of Lewiston. The extension is some 18 miles in length, and the contractors will at once commence work, as it is to be completed July 1st, 1871. Heavy fires in Waltham, No. 8, between Bluchill and Surry, just outside Ellsworth on the western side of the river, in fact in near ly every direction, says the Ellsworth Ameri can. Charles Stevens, of Castine, who has been in the insane asylum for thirteen years, but who recently escaped from the institution, was arrested in Portland Wednesday after noon by Deputy Marshal Decelle. The Whig says that the population of Ban gor, as shown by the returns of the census just completed, is 18,235. In 18G0 it wa^ 10,407, showing a gain of 1828 in the last ten years. The engine of the trsdn due at Portland from Boston at 12.25 Wednesday, ran off the track at Kennebunkport in consequence of the misplacement of a switch. The steel-works at llucksport are shutdown for the present on account of a scarcity of the right kind of labor. Thqgrasshoppers are as thick as the locusts ever were in Egypt, says the Ellsworth Amer can. Three hundred men are working night and day on the Belfast II. 11. The house of n widow Sargcant and daughter in Boothbay was entered on Mon day night about midnight, by a gang of ruf fianly fishermen. They were repulsed by a young man wbo fired into the crowd, hut again returned and beat the inmates of the house shockingly, and ended by setting fire to the house. The party then stole several boats and reached their fleet in the harbor and es caped. The young man alluded to was quite severely injured. The annexed table, from the Portland Ar gus, stiows the amount of rain which has fall en for four months in that section : May - - 1 25-100 inches.

A large part of the hand will have to be amputated. Fires are rpging in the woods in the eastern section of the State. MAINE STATE FAIR i ! 1870. Prices of Admission.
