The streets and roads are getting, dusty again and rain is much needed. We learn from the News that a Cattle Show and Fair will be held at Bridgton on Thurs day, Oct. 3 3th. Messrs. E. C. Allen & Co., have just given an order foradvertising “The People’s Litera ry Companion” in over two thousand Weekly and Daily papers. We understand that the best papers from Maine to California liavc been selected. Four tubular wells have been Runk upon the Fair grounds to obtain water for use during the Fair. Two of them have been tubed anil piped and water brought in abundance of a pure, soft quality. The deepest of these wells is 70 feet, and the shallowest 38 feet. If ' necessary more will he sunk so as to supply a plenty of pure water for all uses. Koine performed her part nobly on Monday , last, redeeming herself from a democratic majority and giving for the republican can- ! didate for representative to the legislature a clean majority of 23. This town has been generally democratic for |eight years, but the people tl ere have become sick of demoeratie majorities and mean to reverse them. Vcsterday morning nt half past ten o’clock, two little boys, sons of Mr. Amos Potter of flardiner, were in bathing in Mill stream in ; that place, and getting beyond their depth, aank and remained under water al*>ut five minutes- Their situation was discovered and they were rescued, and in a short timff were resuscitated under care of several of the physicians. We have received the first number of the j Bridgton Weekly News, a twenty-four col- j unn paper established at Bridgton by Maj. I II. A. Shorcy, formerly of the Bath Times and recently of the Blaine Temperance Advo cate. The copy before us suggests that the good town of Bridgton is to he congratulated. A local paper, such as the News promises to be, should be liberally supported by its citi zeus, and those of the surrounding towns. We wish Bro. Shores- the most satisfactory suc cess. A little past five o’clock yesterday after noon, as Miss Emma Woodbury o( this city, was crossing Water stre et, from the east side, just above the post office, she was run into and knocked down by a runaw ay horse and buggy belonging to City Marshal Farrington. | Miss Woodbury did not notice the approach ing team that was coming rapidly up street, j The first knowledge she h/td of any danger w as when she was suddenly struck. She was struck by one of the thills, knocked down, and falling between the thill and one of the wheel*, was dragged several rods. The horse fell and the buggy was smashed. Miss W. was taken into a store near by in an insensi ble condition, her face covered with blood, and it was (bought at the time that she might be family injured. On being taken to her : home on Winthrop street, and Drs. W. S. Hill | and Brickett called, it was found thatwitli the exception of some bad flesh wounds and bruises on the face and back, her injuries were not serious, and that she will speedily ; recover. Miss Woodbury is the acceptable teacher in the Grove street primary school. Dedlratlei la HallonrU. The dedication at the Univer-alist church in Hallowcll, which has been very much im proved the past summer, took place yesterday afternoon, in the presence of a large congre gation. The order of exercises consisted of in troductory anthem by thefhoir: invocation by Hev. Mr. Moor of Augusta; reading of select portions of scripture by Hev. J. O. Skinner of Waterville, and singing. The sermon was j preached by Hev. Mr. Moor of this city. His ■ text was the first and second verses of the 84th Psalm, “ How amiable are thy tabernacles, O Lord of hosts. My soul longclh, yea even fainteth for the courts of the living God."— The leading kleas were, God has endowed man with a religious nature, the result of which is seen in the various forms of worship, in the erection and consecration of churches, and even in the religious rites of the heathen. In these facts we find the hope of humanity. Rod is opposed to all wrong, and will continue to work upon the minds and hearts of all men until every form of wrong and wicked ness comes to an end. The; speaker closed by urging upon his hearers the idea which the new house of worship should symbolize—a re newed and earnest longing for the living God. The dedicatory prayer was offered by Rev. J. M. l’aine of Gardiner, who we believe is to preach to the parish every Sabbath in the fore noon. A response by the choir followed the prayer, after which the declaration of dedica tion was made by Rev. Mr. Paine, the dedi catory anthem was sung, and Rev. J. O. Skin ner addressed the society somewhat in the line of the sentiment of the discourse. A dosing anthem was sung and the benediction wns pro nounced. BowBolaham Baptist Association Third Day. A profitable prayer meeting was holden in the early morning yesterday. At 8 o’clock commenced the regular daily session of the association. The committee on obitu aries reported the death of two members the past year. Rev. Wm. Wyman of Livermore, and Rev. Daniel Pierce of Greene. Reports on state of religion and Sunday Schools were presented, discussed and accepted. A series of resolutions on Y. M. C. A. was presented by the committee on that subject, heartily endorsed by several speakers and passed. The resolutions acknowledge, with devout gratitude to the great head of the church, the signal manifestations of llis saving grace through the labors of the Y. M. C. A.; that they have operated in localities that havo been neglected by the Christian church ; hail with delight the spirit of Christian union characterizing their labors; and regarding it as a valuable auxilary to the church. It was decided to authorize a committee to tak1 measures to secure a colporter to work with in the limits of the association. A vote cK thanks to the members of the church in Au gusta and other Christian friends for enter tainment and courtesies, to the choir, and to the railroad company, was passed. Tliet followed a prayer meeting of deep interer for half an hour, after which Rev. Mr Bart lett of Livermore Kails preached a sermon from llaggai 2:9, “And in this place I wilt give peace, saith the Lord ot host.” Th* closiug prayer was oflered by the Moderator, I?cv. Mr. Crane, a hymn was sung, and the association adjourned finally. The next annual meeting will be held in Bowdoinham. i The resolutions passed Wednesday evening take strong grounds in favor of foreign and home missions; recommend the Baptist Pub lication Society, and liberal contributions for benevolent objects; that ministerial educa tion is intimately connected with the welfare of our churches; maintaining an unequivocal position in the temperance reform; recom mending the dissemination of a pure religious literature; that the church engage heartily in all the various ways of doing good, and es pecially to pray and labor for the outpouring of the Spirit. The attendance on the association meet ings lias been large, the sessions very in teresting. and it is thought that the influence upon the church arid community will be salu tary. flrrmen's Reception. Bath, Sept. 13, 1870. Bunker Hill Hose Company, No. 2, now on a visit to our State, were received by steamer City of Bath, No. 1. with full ranks, and all the honorary members, accompanied by the Bath band, which discoursed most beautiful music; while the Hunker Hill hoys were ac companied by the old Boston Cornet band.— The 7J train came in on time, and was re-1 ceived by three or four thousand people, de-| termined to give the Bunker Hill hoys a hearty welcome, after which they fell in to line anil were escorted to the Sagadahoc House, ; where good supper was awaiting them. They j were welcomed by the Foreman of steamer City of Bath in beliulf of bis command and the citizens in general, which was responded to by the Foreman of Bunker Hill Hose Co. After supper they adjourned to the Engine bouse for a social lime, when story telling and music by the Boston Cornet Band was the order of the day. The licit sound we beard before going to sleep was the Cornet Band serenading some of the city officials. To-day they visit Cotton s al Harding's Station, where they were at last accounts, having a good time. They wind up to-day’s sports with a grand ball at Music Hall. To-morrow, Thursday, all the Fire Department turns out and goes to Lewiston, where they will be received by I all the Fire Department of Lewiston, and a grand ball in the evening at Auburn Hall.— 1 That they may enjoy themselves hugely is the wish of an old ex-fireman. Engineer Mc lionn of Charlestown is with the Bunker Hill boys. F. Softening of the Brain is becoming un comfortably prevalent.

PRUSSIA REFUSES AN ARMISTICE. Preparation* to Entirely Surround Paris. T1IE SIEGE OF STIUSBURG. Encouraging advices from the Prus sian Advance. THE CROWN PRINCE STEADILY ADVANCING ON PARIS. Conimiuiiriition destroyed between Pam and Lyons. ALL THE BRIDGES AT PARIS DESTROYED. Tho Gates of Paris to bo Closed to morrow. ARREST OF A PRUSSIAN SPY. Hazaine reported Marching on Paris. London, Sept. 14. Midnight—It was stated this evening, semi officially, that Prussia has evidently refused to grant the armistice so energetically pro posed by the governments of Russia and Aus tria. It is however anticipated that when the Prussian troops are well before Paris, King William will consent to negotiations w ith this view. Intelligence from l’aris states that Prussian scouts have made their appearance in the im mediate vicinity of the villages of Jloissy. Vertgalent, Epiny and Chambrav. Arrangments have been made in Paris to entirely surround the city by w ater in three hours time. The dispatch of Gen. Plrich. the heroic Commandant at Strasburg, is as follows : StrAsmirbo. Sept. !*. “Affairs are in a deplorable condition, and are growing worse. The bombardment from the Prussians’ ad vanced works is incessant and frightful. 1 shall hold out to the end. (signed) Ui.richs, Commandant of city of Strasbourg.” Berlin, Sept. 15. Encouraging advices have been received from the extreme advanced quarters of the Prussian forces around Paris. Despatches from Melun, Capital of the de partment of Seineetmame, 27 miles S. S. E. of Paris, represent that the Crown Prince Frederick William is steadily advancing. London, Sept. 15. The communication between Paris and Ly ons has been destroyed, the Prussians having cut the wires and railroad at Monterean, six teen miles south-east of Meluc. Firing was heard at l’aris yesterday from the direction of Melun. The railroad service between Paris and Ly ons has been stopped, • All the bridges which can be reached will be destroyed to-night. Italian unity seems to be nearly accom plished. The sympathy of the people of Borne is al most entirely with Italy. A despatch has been received from Flor ence dated yesterday, announcing that the Papal garrison of Muntario had been cap tured. Lieut. Gen. Angelettis should now be before if not in Rome. Latest. Paris, Sept. 15. The French troops w hich recently crossed the Rhine into Berlin territory, will probably remain separate on German soil. Reinforcements have gone to them. Gen. Trochu in his order of the day to the Garde Nationale says: The result of the re view was very gratifying, and lie feels as sured that the defence of the city will be admirably sustained. l’aris is ready to sacrifice all, ia order to give time to France to organize for irresista ble defence. Last night the Prussians wer“ awakened by cannonade all along the ramparts. It was supposed that an attack had been made, and there was some excitement, which how ever was allayed, when the announcement was made that the Germans were only prac ticing. The shops of the city are mostly closed, and the masters and the employees alike, are drilling. The workmen and the National Garde have made another demonstration of regard to Minister Washburne and the U. S. government. Lord Lyons the British Minister, warns the English residents of Paris to leave the city now while they may. The Place de la Concorde is filled with the soldiery of the National Garde. A Prussian was discovered to day in a se cluded place, firing a rifle at one of the baloons which was being used on an out-look by the military authorities. He was prompt ly arrested. A great nuinberof French Tireurs are en camped at Montmartre. The Prussians to-day were camped at Croix, Aux Bois, Gaston, Glas and Fontaine, near the city ot Nageut Bur Seine. The Lilians appeared, but retreated, when it be came evident that the people meant to give them battle. It is reported that many large Beige guns ! of the Prussians are deeply embedded in the | canal of La Maine Au Itliein. The Prussians ! attempted to transport their guns by this canal, and the French suddenly let the water out of it. It is said this will delay the siege for considerable time. Fort Lyons has been completed, and many troops ure reaching there daily. The guns l are all in position. Advices from all parts of France say that large sums of money are being subscribed ! for the national defence, and large forces are being raised and equipped in all departments. A party of American volunteer# passed : through 'fours to-day coming to Paris. The conscripts of the regular army are drilling here daily. Accurate calculations place the number of the advancing Prussians at four hundred :thousand. To-morrow the Capital will be completely isolated. All the railways have been cut ex cept the lines runnii g west from the forest M ontmoreney. The Foreign Rouey is now burning and the other forests will be destroyed to-morrow. The gas connections will not he cut for a few days. Gen. Troelm published a proclamation to the troops to-day. Neaillv is full of supplies—water ami food. The gates of Paris will be closed to-mor row. There are now over six million pounds of gunpowder in Paris. Seventeen bridges over the Siene have been destroyed. No French fortress h»» yet been taken. Paris is grateful for American sympathy. All classes arc resolved to fight to the death. M. Thiers has received further instructions to treat for peace, and hopes are entertained for a successful result. The Council of Spanish Ministers have de cided to recall Olozaga from Paris lor having exceeded his instructions. Hot. 11.1.10X, Sept. 15. Sedan has been placed in a state of siege. The Mayor has been arrested and the popu lation expelled. The Prussians apprehend the approach of Hazaine, who is reported to have escaped from Metx, and even said to have reached Cariguan. Msumn. Sept. 15. Rivero is quite ill and his resignation is ex pected. Rodrigues will probably be appoint ed to succeed him. Special to N. Y. Herald: Roillon, Sept. 15, 10-50 P.

The International boat race took place tins afternoon. The weather was fine with a light breeze. The two crews started at 16 minutes past five. The Tyne crew were naked to the waist, and the St. Johns in fancy shirts. Ilotli dipped their oars simultaneous ly. but after a few sweeping strokes the Tyne took the lead. At one hundred yards the Tyne seemed to increase their lead, rowing well within themselves a magnificent stroke. At quarter of nine the St. Johns men drew upon them a little, but the Tyne crew put on tremendous spurt, the boat jumping out of the water at every stroke, and at a half mile was one length ahead. On turning the buoy the Tyne crew led them three lengths, and on the home stretch, rowing at an unparalleled pace and perfect precision, and won the race by six clear lengths. Time 41 minutes and ten seconds. The winners were received with the wildest enthusiasm. The people seemed to have ’gone mad with excitement. The Tyne crew rowed in the "Dustan on the Tyne.” a nice boat. 40 feet, 6 inches long, 17 1-2 inches wide, and weighing 90 pounds. The St. Johns crew rowed in the shell “James A. Harding,” 43 feet long, 18 3-4 inches wide and weighing 110 pounds. The Tyne stroke averaged 38 per minute, and the St. Johns 42. FROM CONCORD. Concord, N. II., Sept. 15. Fire in the Woods. A fire has been burning in the woods at Rattlesnake liill. about one and one-half miles north of the city, since Monday afternoon. At present over 200 acres have been burned, but it will probably not extend much further. The loss is considerable. FROM NEW YORK. New York, Sept. 15.
