During peace a regiment is quartered; during war it is occasionally cut to pieces. One span of the iron railroad bridge in this city has been put up. The entire bridge will soon be completed. “Rum did it—J. Pat, coroner,” is the ver dict than can too often be rendered upon the bad ucts of individuals. Miss Sarah M. Phillips, assistant in the grammar school in this city, sent in her resig nation yesterday to the board of Directors. The fellow who was about to be hanged suddenly reformed, and said he would never touch another drop as long ns he lived. The cow-catcher on the locomotive Shepley was smashed yesterday by coming in too close proximity to a hand car. Turner has got a sign on liis telegraph office that is so easily read no one need stumble along the street asking where the telegraph office is. Daniel Waldron, Esq., has been very suc cessful this year in the raising of plums. From ajair trial we should say that they ure of good quality. A thrifty Augusta farmer brought a bushel of cabbage-heads into Emery’s market yester day, remarking that it comprised the total yield of six hundred heads that promised an abundant harvest before the ravages of the green worm. The schools in Gardiner will commence on Monday next. The high school will be under the charge of Leroy Z. Collins, A.B., a grad uate of Bowdoin, and formerly Principal of the high school at Machias. The city horses have been harnessed to gether and toiled together for so long a period that an intimacy seems to exist between them which could not be strengthened were the animals possessed of human intelligence. ^The other day a strange horse was harnessed with one of them, and the grief and discon tent exhibited on account of the change was so great that the lonesome beast could only be reconciled by the return of his companion. Rev. Mr. Mason of Skowhegan, found an interesting natural curiosity at the camp meeting in Richmond the other day. It con sisted of a pine branch, to all appearances growing out of a maple tree. The tree was cut down and the part containing the natural curiosity secured, to be placed we suppose in the archives of the campmeeting associa tion. The pine branch is dead, and probably it has attained no growth since the strange and unnatural union. Many theories may be advanced as to how the union was brought about, but after all the matter must remain a mystery. Religious services were in prog ress when the discovery of the treasure was made. Mr. Mason says he thought he heard the voicesof his brethren in prayer, “O Lord, bring back the curiosity hunters!” but his heart was hardened and he kept right on until the curiosity was in his possession. Joseph Baker, Esq., of this city, one of the commissioners to revise the statutes of the State, under the provisions of a resolve of the Legislature of 1869, has been removed from that position by unanimous vote of the Execu tive Council, at their session which has just closed. In the resolve that was offered and which finally passed it is charged that Mr. Ba 1 ker has “unwarrantably altered the text of the engrossed bill embodying the revision of the statutes; therefore it is recommended that said Baker be removed from the commission.” Messrs. Ephraim Flint of Dover, and E. W. Wedgewood of Biddeford, the remaining mem bers of the commission, tendered their resig nation, which was accepted. The Council ordered that Ephraim Flint, Woodbury Davis and Artcmas Libbey be requested and author ized to superintend the printing of the Revised Statutes until the vacancies in the commission are filled. During the pleasant weather of the past month the work on the daui has been progress ing finely. The foundation lias been replaced and the superstructure carried up to within from four to six feet of the old level, except ing a small gap of thirty feet, which gives vent to the river, preventing a rise of water. We notice the dam is to be raised about a foot | above the former level, judging from the heavy timber work over the old cap stones. ; Three engines, and from 250 to 300 men are j employed night and day. As to the durability of the new work, it speaks for itself. Cer tainly no portion of the old dam is so well banded together. Four weeks of pleasant weather will see the dam completed and in working order. The bulkhead is so far com pleted that a rise of water will not affect it in the least. The entire work lias been carried on under the most favorable circumstances, and an early completion may be expected.— We understand that the Messrs.Sprague intend to repair the truck walls by replacing the present timber foundation with one of point ed masonry. The sawmills are being thor oughly repaired for work next season. The new factory remains at a stand still, and it is doubtful if any progress is made this year.— The Messrs. Sprague are certainly to be com mended for the energy with which the repairs have been conducted, and it is to be hoped that nothing will prevent tlie entire comple tion of the work tliis year. The Dirigo Base Ball Club of this city ar rived home on Wednesday evening, as we liave stated, after an absence of ten days in Massachusetts, where the boys played with the leading junior clubs of that State. On Tuesday they went to Lowell to play with the Lincolns. The result of the game, although not altogether satisfacto’y, shows a triumph for tlie Dirigos. It was generally understood i on both sides that the Dirigos were to leavt on the 5.13 train for Haverhill, where thoj had an engagement to play the next forenoon It was supposed that the umpire, Mr. George II. Hobson, a member of tlie Lincoln club understood this, and it is quite likely that h< did, but he ruled that the Maine boys shouh play out the game or forfeit it. This tliej were unable to do, and at the close of thi sixth innings left tlie field in Hot lmste for tin train, which they succeeded in reaching will Do time to spare. Although the game wu | awarded to the Lowell boys, tlie Dirigos liavi only to turn to the record to read—“Dirigoj 18, Lincolns 13 ’—which is the best evidence of the result, and tfie Dirigos reckon it with their victories. The “boys” arrived in Haverhill at 3.30 and took up their quarters at the Eagle House where a large number of Maine people stop. • The next morning a coach was placed at their disposal by the Haverd Base Ball Club and . they proceeded to the ball grounds which are | about two miles from the city. The ground was in rather poor condition but the boys made the most of it and played a splendid game, making but few errors. Their oppo nents the “llavcrhills” are a gentlemanly set of fellows, and played a good game though as acknowledged by their friends not up to j their standard. They are a great deal heavier than the Dirigos and four or five of them are seniors. The Dirigos took the lead at the start l “whitewashing” their opponents the first two I runnnigs and making tlieer runs for them seives. They steadily increased the load till the close of the gnme when the score stood Dirigo 32, Haverhill 9, and another victory was added for the Junior Champions ot the Pine Tree State. The game through, another rush was make for the train though not on foot. The train was reached, and at half past eight the club arrived in this city. Since their absence the Dirigos have played seven games, winning five and losing two, viz : Dirigos. Opponents.

They are ahead of our dub both in age and weight. The average weight ot the clubs with which the Dirigos have contested is far above their own. The trip lmB been an enjoyable one to all concerned, and will long be remembered as such. Mr. Ci. C. Flagg, President of the club, who had charge of the tour last season, had ! the management of the trip just completed, and to his excellent supervision its happy ter 1 ruination is in a great measure due.

Dirigo Business College. This successful institution is about to com mence another year. We understand that its prospects arc of the most flattering character. Certainly, if its success equals its merits, the I following year will be one of great prosperity. From a personal acquaintance with its pro prietors, we can vouch for their high charac • ter ns gentlemen and as scholars, and can heartily congratulate them upon their well earifed reputation as educators of youth. It would he impossible to over-estimate the importance of a thorough business training, such as can be obtained at the Dirigo Busi ness college, to a young man just entering the arena of life. Energy may do much; hut , untrained energy is like a weaponless giant. ' destined to be vanquished by some opponent. Luck is a word found only in the vocabulary of fools. It is the men of trained and disci plined intellects that occupy the high places among the business men of this country. We can recommend the course aiul instruc tion given at the Dirigo Business College as | equal to anything that can be obtained at any : similar school in the land.

THE GREAT BATTLE OF TUESDAY. Tlie Frrneh Driven with Dreadful Carnage. . McMahon claims a victory ON WEDNESDAY. Tho Battle of Beaumont. CONDITION OF AFFAIRS AT STRAS BOURG. The Combiupd Movements of Bazaine & McMahon Successful. DISCOURAGEMENT IN THE PRUSSIAN RANKS. A FRENCH VICTORY. ! _ Confirmation of Defeat of the French. - ,Tho Good Condition of Paris. London, Sept. 1. The Independence Beige of Brussels, yes terday. says that Marshal McMahon, while on tile heights of Vaux on Tuesday, advanc ing to Montniedy, was attacked Ly the Ger mans and fled hack witlt dreadful carnage. This region of the counry is now absolutely depopulated. Paris. Sept. 1. La Liberte says that Austria lias pledged herself to France to move on Prussia simul taneously it subsidied. M. Olivier, the Prime Minister, agreed that money should not be paid. Austra pressed the matter on Frauce when M. Olivier replied, “No! We fight without you.” The Bavarians are returning home and disbanding. Mutiny has occurred among some of the ; regiments of the Bavarians. Paris lias no reports of a serious French i reverse on Tuesday as claimed by the Prus > sians. McMahon reports himself as victorious on Wednesday. Advices from Paris state that the Lmperoi Napoleon is with Marshal McMahon, and hi: army is at Mczieres. The Prussians stormed the heights of Beau mom and drove McMahon back over the Car ignau and Monzon road towards Sedan. The Prussians conceiving that McMahon’s aim was to gain the frontier to effect a junc tion with Bazaine, advanced in three lines The Crown Prince, South of Nancy, marcher by way of Citumnercy, Bar le ltuc, St. Diziet and Vitry. The fourth army under Prince Royal, ol Saxony, keeping north of Pont a Monson, moved towards Chalons at the same time ob j serving Metz, while Steinmetz, reinforced proceeded through Verdun to Rheims, his right sweeping the Belgium frontier, in hopes jot meeting McMahon; thus the Germans ad 1 vancing, covering the country front Belgium along the Meuse to the Aube, rendering it im possible for McMahon to reaelt Metz. The official correspondence between the va rious provincial government lias been pub | lislied. It announces the intention of Prus ! sia to retain Alsace and Loraine, and believe: j that European powers will be true to their at titude of neutrality, and not endeavor to pre i vent these consequences of the w ar. Later. 1 AIOS, OCpi. A. A letter from Strasbourg continues tin complaints against the Prussians for firing on the houses and not on the defences. A quarter of the city has been destroyed. Thi inhabitants clamor death rather than surren der. The beseigers employ the prisoner; they capture to work on the trenches. At the meeting of the Corps Legislatif Iasi evening, one of the Ministers declared thal Strasbourg deserved well of the country, i and it should always of the French, every where. Strasbourg, its citizens and garrisor are delayed with praise. The Bishop of tin city has urged the commander to hold oui till the last prayer is uttered, and tnen retire to the citadel and raze the city, rather that let in the enemy. It is said that 200,000 Prussian soldier; have been either killed or disabled since the war began. It is estimated that the war costs Prussis ten and one million francs daily. Last night Baraguay do Uilliers assuror the members of a club that a battle had oc curred at Courielles, which resulted in t great victory for the'French. Thirty thous and Prussians were placed hors du combat und a large convoy of provisions and bag gage was captured by the Frunch. The Journal Des Dcsbats says that a large number of wagons and 59 horses, belonging to the Prussian Prince Koyal, were capturec near Chalons recently. The Commander of Strasbourg has pub lished his determination to the people to burr the city rather than surrender. The Prussians have refused the nppea lately made by the citizens to spare the dwell ing part of the city, on the ground that il would thus defer capitulation, and for thi same reason they refused to permit the de parture of women and children. Advices from Savant represent that thi French are villified, and assailed by the Ger mans. Special to N. V. Times. • Paris, Sept. 1. The Fillibuster’s sensa ! tion story, published in the Figaro yesterday | has been traced to American Agents of Prus sia in Paris. Some curious revelations ii ! this connection are expected. Some oh I hands that wete concerned in the Confederati American plots arc mixed up with the affair : as well as certain Journalists, operating fron ! London. The Figaro is decried by its penchant fo canards. The combined movements of Marshal Bazaine and McMahon have been most sue cessful. Their stragetic plans have beei well devised, promptly executed, and di 1 rected to all W'cek points of the enemy. The victory of the French at Courielles i important, as maintaining a prestige agains ; large numbers. Confidence is entirely re ' stored and the seige ridiculed. 11... I ■" 'V There are complaint* at the delay of the expulsion of Germans. A despatch was received to-day from one of the correspondent* of the N. Y. Times, on j the Prussian side, which represents that dis couragement is on tho increase. The cry of I ‘‘On to Paris” is becoming fainter, and death I from exposure and disease is making fearful j havoc in the Prussian ranks. The Moniteur declares positively that the battle of Courcilles was a decided victory for Marshal McMahon. The Moniteur publishes a despatch from Lille, dated Aug. 31, saying that the Prince Imperial arrived at three o’clock yesterday morning, at Avcsrcs, he having quitted Bethel the night before. He was accom panied by two general officers and an escort of cavalry. It is supposed that he was re moved, owing to the danger which might ensue from the rapid movements before the ft* eat battles which were about to be fought. The Prince will remain at Avcsrcs some j days, to recover from a “light illness pro duced by emotion, consequent of the events ho has gone through. At Lille the officials and citizens are de termined to man and vigorously defend the walls, and the same spirit is slmwn at Ave» res, Cambria, bouai, Ifunpuque, Valencenes and Graneheres, where the memories of 1703 are reviving. The Moniteur demands that the Prefects and Mayors who abandon their posts, he severely punished, and not merely dismissed. The Le Public says that the government has received no official despatch to-day, in consequence of the cessation of telegraphic communication between Sedan and Mezieres, hut it is certain that a battle w as fought on Tuesday and Wednesday. The first was a surprise, which resulted in u partial panic in the Corps de Arniee of Gen. Faiiley, when awaiting the arrival of Gen. Wimpfen. There were also separate and detached conflicts, in which our troops displayed great heroism; ! hut there was a want of unity during the en* j gagenient, and the Prussians claim the vic tory. In the battle of yesterday there is do j question hut that McMahon had great success against the troops of both Princes. Bazainc was not engaged yesterday, hut it is known to-day that tic continues the work so energet ically begun by McMahon’s corps at Vinav, which a few days ago passed through Paris, reached the battlefield yesterday, and is doubtless fighting now. The Liberte reports that McMahon has been totally defeated by the left wing and centre of the Prussians, and that their lo«ses wire enormous, and that only the right wing was able to retreat in comparatively good or der. Count Palikao confirms the report that a detachment of Prussian cavalry is surrounded in the forest of Marne, and that escape is impossible. Prince Frederick Charles recently barely escaped capture by the division of Vinay, near Khcims. lie passed over the road by which that division was marching half a mile in advance in a carriage. London, Sept. 1. It is said that McMahon disobeyed the or ders of the Etnperor to detach thirty thousand troops to protect the Prince Imperial. The* siege of Strasbourg continues, and great slaughter has been occasioned by a vig orous bombardment. The garrison made a 6urtie on Tuesday night and drove the Ger mans several miles. The passengers between London and Paris still worry through by way of Dover and New Haven. Tho French frigate off Julius w as seen on Wednesday at dusk in pursuit of a large Ger man ship, which was making every effoit to escape. A large body of the Garde Mobile is re ported to have passed the Khine near Bcl iingu, some twenty miles below the Basle. They destroyed the telegraph and then re tired. I ne i'aris rigaru s canaru auout me sailing of German privateers from America, has ex cited the wrath of tlie public against the edi tors. Special to New York Herald : A letter from Paris of the 21st in«t. has been received here, of which the following is an extract:—The people of Paris are perfectly calm, sedate, and united. This is actually the condition morally of the Capitol, and there is not the least appearance of alarm or distress. Of course an early attack by n large Prussian army is expected, which causes uneasiness and anxiety, hut there is no outward expres sion. either in words or actions. Within tlie past four days there has been constant remov als into the city of furniture and other prop erty from the surrounding villages likely to be occupied by the Prussians. In spite of tlie inconvenience and loss which these removals occasion, there is no complaining or grum bling, but everybody submits readily to the pressure of the occasion, and abide calmly the return of pleasanter days. The appearance of wagons and carts con veying movables, and the constant passage of heavy loads of hay and forage of various kinds, looks singular; otherwise there is noth ing in tlie aspect ot Paris that would impress a stranger as unusual, or give the idea that a great calamity impends over them. What ever is the situation it is probable tl at its dangers in tlie eyes of the people are at a dis tance. There is certainly nothing in the physiognomy of this lovely city that gives it the melancholy leok ot being doomed to great damage or destruction at the hands of a for eign toe. Everything goes on as usual. The shops are all open und gaily dressed. Though business appears to be following its usual course, such is not the case, for tlie departure of thousands of strangers has given a severe check to trade. This is not apparent to a mere observer. Loungers fill the streets and frequent the cafes at night. The usual ciowds through the boulevards arc sitting and talking as in for mer times. True there is less quiet and the animation and conversation is more serious and earnest, but all talk and discuss as be fore. A special despatch to the Standard dated Florenville, Belgium, Taursday morning, says that the French have just been badly beaten on the Seadan road. The Prussians have entered Carignan. There was furious fighting all day Wednesday between Armigny and Donzev. A French army reported to be 100,000 strong is hourly expected at Epcrnuy, ami tlie Prussians are withdrawing from tlie neighbor hood of Khciins. The French are repairing the railways destroyed by the enemy. Palikao asks of tlie inhabitants of Paris , quarters for 100,000 of tlie Garde Mobile, who have been called from the country to defend the Capital. Impartial correspondents from Paris repre . sent that terrorism has become an epidemic in the moral districts of France. Men of known ! democratic ideas' are prosecuted as sympa i thisers with the enemy. | Special to N. Yr. Herald. A special correspondent of the Tribune writes from Paris on Wednesday, that pro 1 visions of all kinds are already reaching famine prices. Butter, salt and potatoes are double, and meat triple the usual cosb Tradesmen refuse to sell except in limited i quantities. Preparations are being made on a vast 1 scale for the wounded. Colleges, lyceums, schools and convents are being converted into hospitals by order of the government, i Many private houses have been given up, t The rich offer their country seats, and the • poor single rooms. The omnibus company has given up several depots. A sppfciftl correspondent writes from Paris Wednesday, ilin^ distrust between the gov ernment and the people still exists, but is much diminished. Time is a great French alley. A week since the Crown Prince might have ridden into Paris. To-day the defences are stronger, the morale of the defenders is still more improved, and it only needs the trust of the people to make Paris and France safe. FROM PORTLAND. Portland, Me., Sept. 1. . Subscriptions to the Calais Sufferers. Portland subscriptions for the Calais fire sufferers have nearly reached six thousand1 dollars, besides large amounts of clothing. Fire. A house owned by the Congregational So ciety and occupied by Rev. Geo. Lewis, at Alfred, was destroyed tiy fire at six this morn ing. The furniture was saved. Loss, $2.r>00; insured $1,400. FROM NEW YORK. _ i Ntw Yosik, Sept. 1. Robbery ol the Methodist liook Concern. The loss by the late robbery of the safe of the Methodist Book Concern was not as large as first reported. Fifteen thousand dollars of the Jersey City war loan, and between fifty and one hundred thousand in case are known to have been stolen. Only a small safe was blown open, the attempt on the larger one failing. The rubbery was effected by burg lars who entered the building by means of false keys, and after an unsuccessful attempt on the safe of the Book Concern, containing usually $200,UOO ill notes, bonds and silver ware, succeeded in opening nnd rifting a small safe, and finished the operation by setting out and partaking of a sumptuous lunch which they brought with them. Fifteen thousand dollars in bonds were taken, the property of J. C. Durbin, of Jersey City. The additional loss will not be over $300. The Methodist officials decline any as sistance from the police or detectives in fer reting out the thieves. A Mean Swindle.

CAMPMEETING A T RICHMOND. Richmond, Sept. 1, 1870. The services Wednesday afternoon at the stand were very solemn and impressive. The sermon was delivered by Rev. T. P. Adams of Wilton. The text was from John 14, 6. “I am the Way.” The theme of the speaker was Christ, the way to Heaven. This he as serted was a new way—an holy way—a per fect way—a safe way—the only way. There is salvation in no other, for “there is none other way given under heaven, among men whereby we can be saved.” The sermon was clear and impressive. Several exhortation followed the sermon, which were all good and impressive. The one which apparently made the deepest impression was the experience of Mr. Daniel Jones, formerly of Durham; he is a reformed inebriate. For more than forty years he was more or less intemperate, for more than twenty years before his conversion to use his own words, when he “left home he never returned sober." His wife was a godly praying woman. She used to spend all nights in prayer for him. One day he went to the store and was returning sober, when he met a neighbor at whose solicitation he returned ' to the store, and the consequence was he got drunk. He said lie had joined all the tem perance societies, but could not reform. The j next morning after that drunk, he arose, his I wife having prayed for him all night, and the ; spirit of God awakened him, and was con j verted and reformed, and for thirty years has lived a sober, happy man. The evening service was peculiarly impres sive. Rev. N. C. Clifford preached, after which there was a season of prayer at the stand, which was was a season of great spiritual power. Thursday morning was spent in prayer meetings in the tents, which was very profitable. The sermon was by Rev. \V. N. Richardson of Chelsea, Mass., which was able and impressive. A prayer meeting of 1 great power followed. The day is fine the order good, everything pleasant and agreeable. 1 he congregation is much larger than yester day. We are expecting a great and good tfceetmg. j). jj. THE CALAIS FIRE. hroni various sources wo get more Fall ac counts of the great fire at Calais. The fire took in .Samuel Rideout’* livery stable, by some children playing. The Hideout block was destroyed. Above that on the same side of the street, T. W. Horton’s apothecary store, and below, on the same side, the City Hall and double dwelling occupied by John Grafton and C. L. Deming, were burned. While the above were burning the fire took on the lower side of the street and consumed every combustible thing between Main street and the river, from Daniel Hill's store and Boardman Brother’s store down to O. P. Treat’s house. This last fire named was saved, but the house of William Deming, Jr., the third below, was burned. From Treat's the fire turned towards the river, sweeping every thing on Kelley’s Point, Porter’s ship yard, Wm. Hines’ ship yard, machine shop und foundry and Ileuses in that locality. All the wharves below what is called Belmon Sc Young's wharf, and all the lumber on and around them were burned, together with eighteen vessels. It was about half ebb tide when the tire commenced, so it was low water awhile the fire was fiercest on the wharves. Til# whole loss is estimated at from $500,000 to 8000,000. The chief sutlerers are Daniel Hill, 820,000; S. T. King Sc Sons, 812,000; P. Kolfe Sc Son. 85000; H. F. Eaton. $50, 000; J. McAdam, $15,000; S.

The wharves and lumber had little or no insurance on them. The buildings and goods were insured perhaps on one-third their value. AA'e have spoken before of contributing to the aid of the sutlerers. There is still an op portunity to subscribe and we hope a generous sum wil be raised. AUGUSTA AJNO BOOTHBAY !
