A lady in this vicinity recently gathered within a small compass in her front yard, fif teen stalks of clover, bearing each five leaves, and sixteen stalks hearing four leaves. Mr. Geo. VV. Carleton of Brunswick, who has recently been brought to the Insane Hos pital, is in a very low state of health and sinking rapidly. The new assistants in the high ind gram mar schools have entered upon their duties witii an energy and enthusiasm that betoken success. A gentleman who lias lived within eight of the Kennebec river for fifty years, says he never knew the water to be so low as at the present time. Three cows and one heifer, belonging to Harrison Hill of Belgrade, were run over and killed by the cars on the Maine Central road, on Monday afternoon, as we are informed by our Belgrade correspondent. Persons in this city intending to attend the State Sunday School Convention in Bath, next week, are requested to send the name of the school with which they are connected, to A. C. Palmer, Esq., Bath. Mr. Charles H. Toothnker, a farmer about aeventy-seven years of age, residing on the Durham river road in Brunswick, lias recent ly been afflicted with insanity. The disease has assumed a violent form, and although an ellort w ill he made to care for him at home, the members of his family are compelled to keep him closely confined. Tile Augusta trotting park, where the out of-door part of the State Pair is to be held, presents a most lively scene. Numerous sheds and pens have been erected for the horses, cattle, sheep, hogs, etc., and the ac commodations for the various departments are being made convenient and every way desir able. One of our old citizens whose death we have recently recorded, forty years ago kept a “corner store,” opposite the old toll house, on the east side ot the river. Of course “the critter” was kept for the spiritual consolation and refreshment of the thirsty customers wlm were in tlie habit of coining together at the store for the purpose of talking over matters and things, discussing politics, and buying their groceries. All at once the proprietor of the store became a temperance man in sen timent, as he had long been one in practice. It occurred to him suddenly tlist rumtelling was a nefarious business, and one day lie rolled liis casks into the street, smashed in the heads, and rum flowed freely as water. He took that method of “closing out” his stock, and never sold any more liquor. Work upon the Fair grounds is being push ed forward rapidly by the contractor, and the same is being done in a thorough manner, and to the complete acceptance of thu trustees.— The cattle stalls are all completed, also the pens for sheep and swine and the poultry ac commodations. Tlie closed stalls tor the hor ses are now being built. The ticket offices— one at the entrance to the grounds near State atreet, and one on tlie east side of the track to accommodate passengers from the trains— have been built, also the secretary's office.— The seats for spectators, opposite the judges’ stand are also in process of completion, and the entire work on the ground' will he finish ed by the time specified in the contract, Sep tember 15th. The lumber used is of better quality than that used at Portland for the State Fair in 18G8, or the New England Fair of last year, it being all sound spruce lumber. The work also is dose in a most thorough manner-, the stalls for tattle being 8 by 8 feet, all cov ered with a tight roof and well boarded up on the aides, tlie roof projecting in the rear of the stall* eighteen inches or two feet beyond the sides of the stalls. Three hundred cattle atalls have been erected, many of which are large enough to contain two animals. Two hundred horse stalls are to be Imilt, each 10 by 8 feet, with tight roof, plunk floors and doors. As au evidence of the way in which the work has been pushed, we merely mention that on Tuesday last Mr. Pereival’s force of seven men built and completed fifty cattle ; stalls, being little more thau seven to each man. We call that a good day's work. Oft Monday several gentlemen from Portland, officers of the society and those w ho assisted in the management of the State and New Eng land Fairs of 1863 and 1863. among them Hon. Win. E- Morris, J. F. Leavitt, Ksq., nod R. H. Hooper, Esq., Assistant Superintendent of halls atN. E. Fair, visited the grounds nnd expressed themselves as highly pleased w ith their situation, and as entirely satisfied w ith the fixtures The work of putting the State House in or der for the exhibition has been commenced under the direction of Hon. Samuel Wasson. An assignment of rooms for the different de partments of the Fair has been made, and tlie whole will he arranged with clock-like regu larity. Carpenters are busy in putting up tlie temporary partitions and other fixtures, and by the middle of tlie coming week the rooms will bo in readiness to receive goods. The entries fur all departments of the ex hibition are coming in rapidly. Already the ; most celebrated herds in the State of all the distinct breeds have been entered, nnd addi tions in all classes of stock are being made daily. Of horses, there arc already nearly or quite one hundred entries, specimens of the Knox breed predominating. Altogether, the entries thus far, are fully up to, if not ahead of what they were at Portland two years ago, two weeka in advance of the Fair. Letter from Farmington. Fatmington, Me., Sept. 3, 1870. Dear Journal :—Perhaps it may he of in terest to your readers to know the origin of the name of this town. One of the first set tlers, Mr. Porter, was a native of the town ot Farmington, Conn., and living much attached to that name, offered to give a barrel of ruin providing he should have the honor of nam- ■ | ng the town. It is needless to say that the present was accepted. The Teachers’ Institute for Franklin coun ty, has just closed a very interesting session. Prof. Allen of Penn., has had charge of the \ institute. He is just the right person for au instructor in meetings like these. County Superintendent Abbott, and I)r. N. T. True, have assisted in making the exercise* inter- | esting. A lecture has been delivered each evening during the session. On Monday eve ning Dr. True gave some useful information to teachers, in regard to teaching Mathemati cal Geography. Tuesday evening. Prof. Rounds, principal of the Western State Nor mal School, gave an interesting account of his recent visit at Toronto. He described the buildings and grounds of the Training or Normal School at Toronto. According to his statements this property is much more valu able than that of any single normal school in New England. Tile school grounds (although in the city), include eight acres, and are artis tically arranged. The common school sys tem of the Province of Ontario is superior to ours in several respects. The average length of schools in this Province (city and rural), is forty weeks, and in Maine less than one half that number. l*i of. Allen made a few remarks on the schools and school systems of the South. After the close of the lecture, he brought to light many facts in regard to these matters that are not known even to the reading pub lic. Prof. Woodman, of Dartmouth College, delivered a lecture on “Drawing,” on Wed nesday evening. This was full of beautiful thoughts, which were clothed in the simplest and best of language. Prof. Woodman will do a vast amount of good in this State hv his lectures on drawing. Thursday evening Hon. Warren Johnson ad dressed the members of the Institute. He compared our school system with those of Prussia and France, and made suggestions in regard to changes in our ow n. llealso spoke of the great needs of the teachers of Maine, among these were: 1st, more knowledge: 2d, a greater power of expressing in the best manner what they do know ; 3d, a more ex tended knowledg of “human nater." The I address was well received by a crowded house. Prof. Allen in his lecture on Friday night spoke of the advantages of the teacher’s life, its responsibility and reward. lie gave three teacher's mottoes worthy of every teacher’s notice, viz., “Preserve the innocent“In struct the ignorant,” and “Reel a ini the vicious." lie closed his remarks by speak ing in high terms of State Superintendent Johnson and the joy he (Allen) had in view ing the improvments in our educational sys tem. The c losing exercise was the conferring of the certificates upon the members. 232 members have been in attendance. The In stitute has been a decided success. The Normal school opens with one hun i dred and forty students. The Androscoggin K. It. is nearly completed to Farmington vil- j lage. They have just finished driving the i piles across the meadow, it requiring more than five hundred piles for the purpose. The j depot grounds are nearly graded, and the j building will be built at once. I understand they are to cost from ten to fifteen thousand 1 dollars, tins amount including enough to con struct an engine house. Farmington is one of the best farming towns in the State. One will get some idea of the wealth of this town by the fact that there are but eighteen cities or towns in the whole State of Maine that has as large a valu ation in 1870.

NEW EASTERN DEPOT FOB THE WORLD RENOWNED SINGER SEWING MACHINES. Opposite the Post Office, AUGUSTA, - - MAINE. These Machines, by their simplicity, durability, and the great range of work they execute,’ have gained a reputation truly enviable. The famous successor the MXGER MANUFACTUR ING Lomi any has stimulated many other compan- 1 iet* to put forth all their energies* and talents to ‘ produce a sewing machine that would eclipse or j equal the linger, but in every case they have sig nallv tailed, as is plainly shown by the tact, that of I all the travelling agents—“runners or drummers” t —of oilier companies, none have the assurance to < laim more than an equality with the Singer, even up**n any special clasr of work. There are many sowing machines, now offered to j the public, that have their good points, and are of j much assistance to the housewife and the indnstri- | ous seamstress. Parties purchasing a sewing ma chine of any sort, find the improvement on the old j fashioned way of sewing by hand so great and I ldeasing. that’they are naturally, but erroneously, j led to believe that they have the*best, until the spell 1 is broken by the introduction ol the Singer of 1870 ' into a neighbor’s family, which is sure, bv the in- I .creased rapidity and ease with which it does every | kind of plain or I ncy si-wintr, to awaken them t«* a | positive, although it maybe silent acknowledge- ! ment the paimul truth that there arc* very many i varieties of work that are easily executed upon the j singer, but that they must either be content to do J without, or exchange, at a heavy pecuniary sacri tlce, their enrv. d needle*i, frail-pow ered, unrelia* i bit-tensioned, low-speeded or ravel-stitched ma- j chine for a Singer .\eu Family Machine. Various expedients are resorted to, that the pub lic eye may be turned from the Singer f*r the pur pose’ of introducing inferior machines—viz. “The Button-Hole Dodge.” “The Ov»*r-Scaining,” “The Double-Lock-Knot-.St itch.’’“Elastic Mitch.” “Twist ed Loop,” “Self-Adjusting Tensions.” “HiugFinish ami Beautifully Ornamented,” “Straight Needle.” “Stitch- Mike-on-both-Sides,” “Medals from lairs,” “Vertical Feed Bars,” Noiseless Running,” “Silent Feed,” and last and worst of all, the low-priced— • Family Shuttle Machines.” Many of these points are desirable, (and the singer excel!s all in each individual speciality} but tlu- greatest toe made of those special jaunts, is by the retail agent who parades them before the inex perienced purchaser w ith sueh fluent and earnest style, as to entirely divert attention from the really important (tearing* of the case*. While other inno cent local agents ignorat.tlv represent that the ma chine sold by them is capable of doing every varie ty of work, equal to the Singer, and often do they thus unconsciously swindle customers who cannot afford to squander their substance upon gilded follies and worthless rattle-traps. Parties in quest of a Sew ing Machine should look about them and learn w hat machine is most exten sively used in families, tailor shops, shoe factories, and carriage factories. It is an acknowledged fact, ireely admitted by all sewing machine dealers, that more than two-thirds of ai! the clothing worn in this country by both sexes, whether custom made or ready mode, is actually manufactured upon Tilt SINGER Hewing M \» ui m: These Machines are manufactured by one of the oldest, strongest, and most enterprising Compan ies that has ever been engaged in the business in the world. Throughout their immense manufac tories, w hich are kept in constant operation “day and night,” none but highly skilled mechanics are employed. Newly improved machinery is em ployed turning out each part iinished to that me cha’nica! exactness, that every one is a perfect du plicate of the other in size, weight and finish. All new inventions are carefully examined and tested, and if unproved, are adopted, regardless of ex pense. while the many impractical humbugs that are patented, are left to grace some new wonder and learn the purchaser w hen too late, that he has “paid too dear for his whistle.” It should be re membered that the Singer Manufacturing Com pany has never made a poor Machine—from the very first twenty-odd years ago. They never buy editorial uotiees, or expend funds in “log-rolling” at Fairs to gain medals or premiums. They simply make their Machines as valuable as money and science can perfect them—place them in their Sales Rooms, and leave the public to find out tiieir virtues in their own way. By this straight forw ard course they are now manufacturing about four hundred per uav, ami at that rate, even, are unable to supply the demand. WHAT 18 THK NEW FAMILY 8IX.KK OF 1970?

THE HO.UBAKD.1IENT OF STKAS BOl'RU. Paris, Sept. 7. The papers contain patriotic and lengthy appeals addressed to the United StHtes gov ernment for American aid and sympathy in the movement inaugurated for the purpose of freeing the French people from the Imperial dynasty, and establishing upon a firm basis a government similar in form to that of the j United States. It is expected that great Republican dem onstration w ill he made throughout Europe, if the armies of Frussia surround and heseige j Paris, and attempt to crush out the ef fort of the French people to create a repub lic. Victor lingo and Louis Rhine take no active part in national aflairs for the pre sent. A French officer from Metz states that Marshal Bazaine cannot hold out much longer. Starvation stares the garrison in the face. It was supposed there were one million ra tions in the fortress, hut through the treach ery of some one there was not enough for ten days. The bombardment of Montmedy ceased yesterday. The report is confirmed that the Orleans Princes are on their way to Paris and a rumor is also in circulation that a difficulty existed J between Gen. Trochu and the Ministers, hut the battle gave way and harmony was restored in the republican council. Lum on, Sept. 7. The cities south of the German States in cluding Carlsruhe, Mayence, Stuttgard and M unich have petitioned for annexation to North Germany. Latest. Londox, Sept. 7. The Times to-day in its city article com menting the prostration of business and un steadiness for securities says : “The price of the federal bonds depends on the success of Prussians, which seeuis now assured. The writer hopes the Frencli republic will not persist in a vain struggle, hut seek peace and leisure to constitute. According to the Daily News there is a hegira of French refugees red and parti col ored from London. A correspondent of the Daily News, noticed before the late events a vigorous soldiership ill Geriuun camps, and ure utter dissoluteness, impatience and ab sence of all interest or ambition at Paris. Paris, Sept. 7. A circular lias just been issued by Jules Fax re, which contains the tullowing points : The policy of France is peace, leaving Germany master of her own destinies. The King of Prussia bad said that be made w ar against a dynasty and not against France, yet the dynasty is gone and France is free, and still is this impious war continued. Will the King face Ibis responsibility before the world and bear bis toils? France yields not one foot of sod, not one stone of a fortress. A shameless peace means the extermination of our cause, and that of Europe. Undis mayed the army is resolute and provided. Three hundred thousand combatants can hold Faris to the last. If crushed, France will arise and avenge. Let Europe know that the Ministers have no other aim or ambition than peace, but the war proving in earnest, we will continue to struggle, confident of triumph and justice. The officers of the Garde Mobile are re signing. The corps of Gen. Vinoy is mutin ous. They say the forced,march is useless in v iew of tile treason at Sedan. The Manchester Examiner learns that 281,000 men are available fur the defence of Paris. A correspondent of the Guardian at Luxem burg, writes that the garrison of Metz is stowing, and beef there is two dollars a pound. Brussels, Sept. 7. In consequence of the French evacuation o! Rome, Italy revokes her call for a third class of reserves. Special to N. Y. Times. Paris, Sept. 7. The new Republican gov ernment seems to count much on the mural and material support of the United States as their old ally. Its organs, particularly the Electeur Libre, calls on Jules Favre to ad dress himself directly for aid to the govern ment of Washington. These Journals forget the influential Ger man population in the United States, and that is the reason so large a portion of Amer ican republicans ure on the German side. Gen. Vinoy’s corps is fast pushing into Paris. The Prussians are advancing by forced marches. The plan of the Republican government is to leave the departments free to organize their own defence, which plan is universally approved. The Prussian plan of attack ou Paris, I be lieve is this: —An advance by Melund and Fontainamblin to Versailles, while the army now advancing tVoin Laon pushes on to St. Bonis. This latter force will make an attack on Montmartre, but the main attack will be on the other side. The force occupying Versailles and advancing by the road to the heights of Clamnrt, will throw np the earth works and plant batteries against Fort d'lssay, and o[>en fire on Vungieriand. The Journal Lesoir gives a singular ac count of the interview between King William and Emperor Napoleon. It says the King behnved like a brute, and but for intolerance of Crown Prince and Bismarck, would have had the Emperor shot. Special to the Sun. Paris Sept. 7. The last person arrested by the Imperial Police was Gen. Oluscrul. The first one by the Republican is Princess Mathilde, who was running away with fifty one millions. The Prussians have entered France by way of Belfort, and are going to Mulhouse. m Special to N. V. Herald. Strasbourg, 5th, via. London, Sept. 7. The first orders were to invest the city in such a manner that no considerable amount of pro visions could enter, and to prevent any com munication between the city and the outside world, and to accompany the same with not a too destructive bombardment. This moral pressure bad no effect upon the Governor, and a seige in force was commenced, and the third parallel opened. What destruction en sued. The avenues were tilled as it a hur ricane had passed over the city. The cathe dral and public buildings were partially de stroyed, the streets were strewn with the dead and dying, and magnificent houses were in ruins. One shell hurst in a school for children, and 7 little girls were instantly killed. The suburbs suffered fearfully, and the inhabitants of whole parishes tied leaving everything. To prevent the recurrence of the disorders which occurred, the following order has been issued by the Commanding General: In the buildings deserted by the inhabitants, disorders of a most ruffianly character have occurred which cannot tail to effect gravely on the discipline and honor of the troop9. It is expected that officers will take the most energetic measures to prevent any recur- j renees ot the same. They will have the lo calities strictly watched, and permit no one to enter, and still less to plunder. Resistance to this order will lie encountered with meas ures of the utmost severity, and such brutal ruffians will be shot down on the spot. Berlin, Sept. 7. A private correspondence says: Great events may be expected whose consequences will be of the highest moment. The revolu tion ot Baris renders mediation nugatory. Oelhruck, President of the Federal Chan cery, has summoned the King of Prussia to Berlin. Gen. Vinoy with 30,000 men is coming from Sedan to Laon. it is rumored that he had an engagement with the Prussians, in which he was worsted. Kverv day brings to light new imperial j swindles. The seventh regiment of the line received j blank cartridges while the other regiments re- j ccived cartridges made of sand. How the I municipalities of Paris have constituted the j name as Henry Martin as the one of Mayor will give yo i an idea of the others. Every thing is quiet. The provisioning of the city is nearly com pleted. There is a strong movement in favor of giving Gen. Cluserat command of the Na tional Guard, but he seems inclined not to accept. He wants the command ot the vol unteers or nothing. Keratry is exceedingly unpopular. M. Calenti a correspondent with the army of Rappel was a prisoner, but the Prince Koval released hiiu, saying: “When you reach Parisyou will find a Republic. We will be very severe with Paris.” Two hundred and eighty-three persons have been liberated who were political prisoners here. The government of National Defence de crees that the fortress of Toul merits well of the Nation for her heroic defence which still continues. On place de lu Concorde where is located the statue of the city of Strasburg, day and night crowds congregate in honor of a place so tried* anil decorate the statue with tlowers and immortelles.
