There was quite a severe and in some places
killing frost in this section of the Stale on
Monday night.
The new Univenaliat Clrnrch at Itridgton
Center will be dedicated this afternoon and
the ordination of the minister will take place
tomorrow.
Elson, the pedestrian lias accomplished his
feat of walking from Rockland to Belfast ami
hack again daily for six consecutive days. A
convincing proof of perseverance and muscle,
but “what’s the good of it ?”
On Friday at 4 1*. M.. John F'linn of Gar
diner. while unloading sand from the ears,
was thrown out, by the horse sudden y start
ing, and suffered a fracture of the collar bone.
L>r. W. L, Hall w as called in attendance and
the patient is now doing well.
The Calais Advertiser says the subscrip
tions for the sufferers by the late tire in that
city, have reached some £9000 and upwards,
l’orlland leading the van in liberality. The
citizens of Calais who were burned out by
the late fire, are moving with activity in re
building.
A gentleman in Gardiner, who lias been out
of health for the past year, and taken raiiaus
remedies without beuetit, called on Ur.W. L.
Hall of G., one day last week, who, after
lieaiing a description of the symptoms, in
formed the patient that he had within him a
tenant paying no rent, but consuming the best
part of the food which was eaten—in other
words, a tape-worm. Though unbelieving,
lie took the remedies prescribed on Sunday
morning, and in the evening the “varmint,"
12 feet long, was safely bottled in alcohol in
the doctor’s office. It is useless to add that
the patient does uot regret his loss.
Hon. Joseph W. i'attorson of this city, has
shown us a copy of tlis “Boston Gazette,”
published more than one hundred years ago.
As in all of these old papers, the advertise
ments are very curious and interesting.
Hubert Gould “earnestly desires” all who are
indebted to him to pay up. Hubert Stone
advertises his w ife as a thief. V, m. Barber
oilers a reward for a negro nun who has run
away from him. Iluw does that look along
side of the fact that a negro sits to-day ir. the
I nitcd States Senate? A gentleman lias a
long advertisement stating that a fellow has
cheated him out of a sum of money and he
has tried to collect it, but in vain. 11c is in
formed that the debtor “keeps himself armed
with pistols, &c. 1 made my escape upon
principles of preservation.” John Bariev
and Win. Billings “begs tu inform the pub
lick that they propose to open a singing
school, near the old South Meeting House,
where any person inclining to sing may bo
attended upon with dispatch."
Everybody in the city know* Jim-.
Who in this vicinity ever made such sliurp
trades in horseflesh, or is more competent to
judge of the qualifications of a “swifter?"
Jim. with his other accomplishments, is an
awful di mocrat. lie was never classed in any
political canvass among the “doubtful” ones.
You can put your hand on him at any time of |
the day, and reckon on a man who is sure to |
Vote the straight democratic ticket every time,
without any adulteration or interpolation sug
gested by “conservative” republican* or du- j
affected democrats, hoping for success. On
Monday Jim appeared at the [Hills in his ward
for the purpose of doing his duty, armed and
equipped with a democratic vote. Out of cour
tesy, a friend li.imleei hiui a republican ticket
which he de posited in the bottom ot one of Ins
pockets, consigning the democratic ticket to
another pocket. The horse question was in
troduced, and iu the bewilderment of its dis
cussion, and its fascination, Jim forgot his
country, her rights and her wrongs—forgot
even that there were such tilings as poliiical
[iarlies—and remembering only that lie had a
vote iu his poedeet to deposit in the ballot box,
lie stepped forward and deposited the gentle
messenger that does the freeman’s bidding.—
Hut what a sensation is visible iu the little ward
room ! The republican who sits over against
the polls w ith check list and pencil in hand,
rises from his scat and looks in blank astonish
ment, and the democratic guardian of the polls
is stricken w ith a paralytic shock of surprise.
Jim has voted the republican ticket' He is
charged with it, ns though it were a crime.—
He denies it stoutly ami in language never
used in properly conducted Sabbath schools,
lie finally appeals to the officers and specta
tors, and 'they ail witness to the truth of the
charge. He had put his liaisd in the wrong
pocket, and inadvertently had for the first time
in his life voted right, lie will never get over
that blow while lie remains in the democratic

London, Sept. 13.
The correspondent of the Morning Post
telegraphs from Paris that all hopes lor the
suspension of hostilities have been abandoned
Ly the officials and people of Paris. The com
mittee ot defence have vigorously grappled
w ith ttie danger threatened. The greatest
military activity prevails and the call for do-1
lenders is responded to with alacrity.
New York, Sept. 13.
A London special says there is no tele
graphic communications with Paris. The gas
ha* been cut oil'. Two hundred thousand ot
lie Garde Mobile are under arms, and tile
bridge* have been ruined. Those on the east

The commander of the native Papal forces
has been placed under arrest because of his

Berlin, Sept. 13.

London, Sept. 13.
The Times this mornning says M. Thiers
comes to Kngland pursuant of information
reaching tile Provisional government, and is
doubtless authorized to express the views of
that government touching peace. We hope
for negotiations the conditions of which will
probably embrace the dismantling of Metz
and Strasburg, or their occupation for three
years Ly the Germans. If the terms are at all
reasonable Kngland will back them.
A despatch from China to-diy contains un
favorable intelligence. The Chinese are pre
paring for war and further outrages have been
| committed on the Missionaries.
Communication between Brussels and Paris
is still maintained by way of Dover and
Quieriain.
Prussians appeared at Proims in the de
partment of Seine cl Marne on Monday noon,
and at Laval, Tracy and Carlepont, in the
department of Disc.
Chances for the successful defence of Paris
increase hourly.
The Independence Beige says the policy
of the American government occasions no
surprise, considering the close intimacy of
Bancroft and Bismarck. It is denied how
ever, in Berlin, that Bancroft made any
representation in favor ot mediation.
The Journal of St. Petersburg in discuss
ing the mission ot M. Thiers to neutral pow
ers, hopes lie will carry home a conviction
tavorablc to peace. To do so he must sacri
fice many prejudices and absolute ideas. He
will then set Prance a great example, and
make his own infiuence more powerful thun
! ever.
Gen. Williams the defender of Kars, has
been appointed Governor of Paris.
Special to the Herald.
1 London, Sept. 13. Thiers looked careworn
and ill, and shows aversion to conversation.
A tew words were interchanged with old ac
quaintance at Dover, who enquired whether
became accredited as envoy of French lie-pub
lic. He intimates that he kne w the lie-public
was only a government for the defence of
Paris. There is good authority for believing
the de finite proposition, for a place was of
fered in behalf of u provisional government
j at Paris, and that M. Thiers is authorised to
! lay before the British government whose in
tervention is solicited. The terms are as
follows :
“Payments to Prussia, war expenses, des
truction of all ports in Alsace and Lorraine,
and temporary occupation of Metz and Stras
bourg by German truops until the election of
an authorized government for France, and
the ratification of the treaty by tlte proper
authorities.
Special to the Time*.
Paris, Sept. 13. There is n strong feeling
here that tne mission of M. Thiers to the
three courts will be productive with fruitful
results.
The idea lias been stated in Berlin of con
verting Alsace and Lurriane into independent
Republics, and ns it is regarded with favor in
London. It is looked upon as a condition to
which both belligerents can agree.
A letter from Dr. Marion Sims, who is do
ing hospital service with the French army,
states that American ambulances have been
more useful than any other.
A Paris letter of the 12th inst , say* : Yes
terday 1 obtained an interview with Victor
Hugo, and after a short conversation I told
him that the object of my visit was to ascer
tain how lie regarded the position ot Ameri
ca with respect to the French Republic. He
expresses himself highly gratified w ith the
expression of public sentiment in America,
and said he had determined to despatch a
special appeal to the American people. Since
you saw me last, he said the snows of many
years have whitened my head, hut the years
of exile have not (leadened my heart. Deso
lation tills France to-day, and my grief at the
sight ot the miseries which have befallen this
unhappy land are too poignant to express in
» olds. This is the work of a man who is
now expiating his crimes, hut why should the
conqueror not ho satiated with blood, when so
many victims are already sacrificed by this
unholy ambition ? Why should the King of
Prussia, who declared that he marred not
upon the people of France not be content
nuw that bis antagonist lias been stricken
and has disappeared from the scene of strife?
1 he fall of Bonaparte allows me to return to
niv home after an exile of 1!) years.
Is it right that we should he slaughtered
on our hearths became Prussia is provoked
by u criminal whom providence has over
taken? It will be an eternal disgrace to the
King of Prussia, if lie refuses to sheath his
bloody sword, now that the cause has gone
which induced him to draw it. The people
of Germany are as hum ne as they are
couragoms. Their King mi-takes their senti
n.i nts if he thinks it is their wish to prolong
this frightful war. and degrade a nation
which has been dragged into conflict; and
the appeal I addressed to all chrisiian Ger
mans w as only response to many solicitations
received from every quarter of the Fnther
ian 1. to raise my humble voice against the
barbarity ot this war. 1 flimik God that it
lues been heard, for to-day I received a letter
from the tamp of King William, signed by
10.000 men in the army, saying that they
shrink from slaughter.
Will not the I'nited States, the common
home of so many German:-', will not its citi
zens if the government refuses, make a
Christian effort to extinguish the horrid torch
of war? Will not the elder sister of our
young lie public stretch forth a hand of re
monstrance at the untold calamity which
threatens us? 1 w ill appeal to them too in
my own huinhic name, and may Heaven
vouchsafe that my accents of anguish may
reach their lie-arts, and incline them to pro
test aguin-t more waste of lile, against the
sacrifice of a people at the command of a
King, and against the infliction of death upon
their unoffending brother people.
He said lie believed the Republic would ac
cept peace on any honorable terms short of
yielding territory. There is a great move
ment in ev r. part of the* city. The* depart
ure and final concentration of troops on the
near approach ot the Prussians seems to have
arousid the military ardor of the people.
Streets are filled with thousands of soldiers
marching and counter-marching from point to
point.
Paris, Sept. 13.
Tlie* staff of the Ministry of the Interior
has reached Tours. A pass countersigned
by a member of the Ministry is now required

Tours, Sept. 13.
Arrangements which were being made here
to receive the diplomatic body have been dis
continued, as the Minister of foreign atfi.iirs
has decided to remain in Paris. Representa
tives of foreign governments will stay there
some days longer.
Tlie people here are much impressed in fa
vor ol the American government, and anx
