Ninth Exhibition of the Maine Stale Ag ricultural Society. The Maine State Agricultural Society was incorporated in 1855, and held its first exhi bition at Gardiner, in September of that year. The second was held at Portland in 1850, the third at Bangor in 1857, the fourth in this city in 1858, the fifth, also in this city in 1859, and the sixth at Portland in 18(10.— During the rebellion its fairs were suspended, but the Society always kept up its organiza tion. The venerable Dr. E. Holmes was tho first Secretary of the Society, which position be held until his death, in 18(15. Mr. S. L. Boardmun, his successor in the management of the Maine Farmer, was elected ns Secre tary, and has held the position ever since, having been annually re-elected to the posi tion which he has filled so ably. The Presi dents have been successively: Hon. S. F. Perley, Hon. Thomas S. Lang, Hon. Wm. C. Hammatt, John F. Anderson, Esq., Sew ard Dill, Esq., and Hon. Seth Scamman. the latter gentleman having been three times re elected, which is a deserved compliment to his mat.n r ot filling the place. The present Treasurer, lion. Wm. E. Morris, now Mu nicipal Judge of Portland, has served in that capacity three years, and has proved a most efficient and gentlemanly officer. The Board of Trustees, at present, is composed of the following gentlemen : Hon. Warren Percival, Cross Hill; Hon. Samuel Wasson, Ellsworth; S. T. Holbrook, Esq., Oxford; Nathan Dane, Jr., Esq., Kennehunk; Seward Dill, Esq., Phillips; Hon. Wm. P. Wingate, Bangor. After the close«t the rebellion, the Trus tees deeming it for the interest of the Society and the advancement of agriculture in the State, resolved upon resuming tile annual fairs of the Society. Accordingly that for 1SG8 was laid in Portland, and also that for 18G9 in the same place,—the latter having been held in connection with the New Eng land Agricultural Society, and under their rules, although the mtire arrangement of the exhibition in all its details was arranged and carried out by the officers of the State Agri cultural Society, nearly all of whom are now also connected with the management of the present exhibition. lwo exhibitjons ot tiie society having been successively held in Portland, the Trus tees desired the lair of 1870 to be held in some other part of the State. Alter visiting Bangor, Lewiston, and other places, they de cided to locate the fair in Augusta, trie city having appropriated for the purpose of aiding in erecting the necessary accommodations, the sum of five hundred dollars, and offering to the Society a police force ot fifteen men, during the days of the lair. In addition to this, Hr. \V. M. Thayer, generously gave the use of the Augusta Driving Park, with additional ground adjoining, and the citizens made up a subscription of something like 61,300. The Council also granted the use of the State House for the purpose of the lair, and the County Commissioners gave the free use of the Court House for the evening dis cussions. Altogether, these others held out a far better proposal than the Trustees re ceived from any other locality in Maine, hence their decision in selecting this city as the location of the State Fair of 1870. The work of superintending the erection of the stalls, pens, sheds, etc., was entrust ed by the Trustees to Hon. Warren Percival, Vice President of the Society, and so far as we can learn, that gentleman lias fulfilled bis duties with acceptance. The work has been performed by contract and to the satisfaction ot the Board. The chief work of the preparation for such an exhibition as the present is necessarily crowded into a few weeks time, although the correspondence and general arrangement ex tends nearly throughout the season. Conse quently. in order that the arrangements may be complete, and all run smoothly, the whole labor must be systematized and sub-divided. This the present Board of Trustees are fa miliar with, and if acquaintance with the du ties of their several positions is worth any thing toward ensuring success, we may be sure, with good weather, that the lair will be the most successful ever held by the Society. At the State House, where the Fair, prop er, takes place, we find Hon. Samuel Was son in charge with an ahle corps of assist ants, among whom are John K. Hooper, Esq., Assistant Superintendent, and A. If. Board man, Superintendent of entries, both of whom assisted Mr. Wasson in the New England Fair of last year. The several departments of the Fair are each in charge of competent men, and there is no confusion or disorder. On ajiproaching tile Fair Grounds, we find the building at the entrance occupied by the Treasurer, Mr. Morris, who lias entire con trol of the Ticket Department; and by the Secretary, Mr. Boardman, nnd tiis assistants. Here all the entries to the show ground ex hibition are made, but entries for the State House arc made there. The whole depart ment of entries for both departments of the Fair being regulated and controlled by the Secretary. At (lie State House we And Mr. Millikcn, of Portland, formerly the popular engrossing clerk, as chief clerk, and at the ground Mr. Weston Lewis of Pittston. Close by tbe Secretary's office is the Presi dent's tent, where the guests of the Society will be received, committees made up, (fcc. To the south of this is the mammoth tent, where the agricultural implements are to be exhibited. This department of the Fair is superintended by S. Dill, Esq., of the Hoard of Trustees. The tbnt is about 125 feet long and G5 feet wide, and w ill hold 6000 persons. It will be light and airy, well adapted to the uses for which it is provided. Passing along we next come to the cattle department, in charge of Mr. Dane of the Board of Managers. The arrangment here is about as follows : 1st row of pens, Work ing oxen; 2d, lleretords; 3d, Grades and Natives; 4th Ayrshires; 5th, Jerseys; Gth, Short Horns; 7th, sheep and swine; 8th, poul try. After this we reach the new stalls for horses, erected outside the old Park enclosure. This department is especially under the manage ment of Mr. S. T. Holbrook, the General Superintendent, whose headquarters arc with in the track, and who has proved himself a prompt and efficient officer. The list of entries will compare favorably with those of the Ntw England Fair last year. Of the stock, tbe variety and number will be unsurpassed at any State Fair. On our first page we give u list of entries, which will he made complete in future issues of our paper. The various catch-penny institutions, al ways attendant on a large gathering of people, ! will be found on the grounds. They of course will be well patronized. Let there be a due ‘ regard for the evil intentions of the pick pockets that are sure to congregate at the Fair. This will be the first day of the Fair. We gi' c the programme: At 8 o’clock tlie gales will be open for i visitors. At 104 o’clock, opening address by the i President of the Society. At J1 o’clock, meeting of Marshals and Su perintendents of various departments at the President’s headquarters, when committees i will be filled. At 114 o’clock, the track will be opened to exhibitors for general driving. At 2 P. M. No. 1, for horses that have never I troitcd better than 2.50, mile heats, 3 in 5, to harness.

We have just been shown by one of our ; citizens and musical instrument selling man, Mr. 1!. M. Mansur, an acient relic consisting of a pocket account book, commencing July 8tli 1705. one hundred and sixty-five years ago, running along by different paths over 1 one hundred yiars. The writing is very plain and legible, the ink holding its color well. The cover is of parchment, with a brass clasp. Among the items charged over one hundred and fifty years ago we notice “Thread to make a blue coat otic shillings" “One year's board 83 pounds” “a span shackle” A “runlet of rum,” “Making breeches, etc.,” In 1753 we find 17 pounds and 13 shillings charged for one y oke of oxen and t«o cows, liatiier low compared with the price now; 3 shillings was the price charged for a day’s wotk then. Who of us have account nu iiiorandum bcoks to be look ed over one hundred and sixty-five years lienee, ey umiorn generations, nun » no can [ begin to eoniprebeml the changes intervening? It may be seen at the State Fair in Mr. Mansur’s box of curiosities. There was a public installation of the newly elected officers of Asylum I.odge Free and Accepted Masons, of Way ne, at their lodge room, on Friday evening last. The interest ing services were conducted by It. W. I). G. M. Cargill of Ibis eitv. wlm visited the lodge by special inv itation. A large numberof ladies witnessed the ceremonies, at the close of which the company adjourned to “Mill Hall," where a pic nic supper had been provided by the lady friends of the Masons. Asylum Lodge is prospering. The Argus says the closing entertainment ' of the Morris Brothers’ Minstrels at City j Hail, Portland, Saturday evening, was hon ored with a tremendous house. Billy and Lon were full of new and sprightly sayings l and songs, and Scott, their established center map, deserves a special word of praise. The (performance gave great satisfaction. The company appeared in Lewiston last night, and in Augusta the remainder of the week. Mr. John Wyman of Skowhegan, went to the lake on a fishing excursion, about three weeks ago, intending to he absent from home about one week. No intelligence ha* ing been ' received from him, search was made and lie was found drowned in the lake. His body was r< covered. He is a Maine man, about thirty years of age, and leaves a wife and two i children. Gen. E. T. Smith of Gorham has shown the Argus an Indian Hint arrow head, in a perfect state of preservation, which his son picked up I on his farm in that town, near the bank of the Presumpscot river, one day last week. It must have been left there by the Indians more than one hundred years ago. Oysters of an enormous size are found at Shccpscott Bridge, where there is raid to lie quite a bed of them. They are in such deep water that it will not pay to take them out for the market. Afire broke out in one of the rooms of the Brewster Hotel, in Skowhegan, on Monday morning about two o’clock, but was extin guished without much damage. It is sup posed to have been caused by a person smok ing. We have from Hunt it Fellows dealers in fruit, confectionery, and fancy articles, Water street, some fine clusters of grapes, raised by Mr. John Burr, Freeport. The Directors of the Village District have voted to give the schools in their care Wed nesday and Thursday, of this week, in con sideration of the State Fair. Afternoon services will soon he resumed in most of the city churches where they have been suspended during the summer. We are indebted to our venerable friend, Gen. Arnold, for sonic nice varieties of ap ples from bis orchard. Should the weather during Fair time prove to be cold or uncomfortable, arrangements have been made whereby strangers and those without good warm overcoats, under clothing, shirts, &c., can be furnished with the same by calling at the Popular One Price Clothing Store of S.

Ono Person Killed and Another Badly Wounded. Special Dispatch to the Daily Kennebec Journal ] Hali.owell, Sept. 19. The people of this city were thrown into intense excitement this evening, by a hor rible murder that occurred here. Edwuid S. Iloswell, who lias had domestic troubles, and has recently become enstranged from his wife in consequence of alleged crim. con.y stabbed his wife this evening with a common jack-knife, and afterwards with the same weapon, cut the throat of her paramour, John Eaflin, a barber, whose juglar vein was severed, causing instant death. Mrs. Iloswell was not injured so severely as was at first supposed, and it is thought she will recover. Iloswell was immediately ar rested. his hands bearing the work of the foul deed. He was carried lo Augusta and lodged in the county jail. He denies having committed the crime and is feigning insanity. His preliminary examination will take place to-morrow morning before Judge. True. E. F. Pillsbury, Esq., is engaged as his counsel. Mr. Iloswell has been employed in the rail road paint shop at Augusta. The murderer is a Spaniard, is about 43 years of age. with black hair and eyes. Mr. Lad n, the murdered man, has always borne a good reputation, and it is believed there was no cause lor jealousy. The excitement in this city was very intense, on the dis covery that a murder had been committed. WAR IN EUROPE. SUCCESSFUL l’ROCEEDURE OF THE INVESTMENT OF PARIS.

Napolcou says nothing can keep the Prussians but of Paris. GRAND REVIEW OF TIIE GARDE .HORILE. London, Sept. 19. Reports from the Prussian headquarters de tailed the successful proeeedure of the invest ment of Paris. An interview between Jules I'avre and Count Bismarck will occur shortly, but no de lay will be caused in the investment of the city unless the meeting should have some im portant result. A correspondent of the Times writes from Berlin that he has struck the cue to the course of the King, seemingly to ignore the present government of France. He says Prussia recognizes Napoleon as tiie Emperor of the French in order to in form the political and expecting candidates to the throne of France, that Prussia will recognize that government only which ac cepts the terms which Prussia will propose, therefore, as the republic of France is ig noring the Prussian terms, Prussia ignores the republic. Paris, Sept. 19. A figlit took place yesterday ten miles from Paris, between the advance guard of the Prus sians and a reconnoitoring party of the French. The latter were driven back and the Prussians established themselves on the heights which the French had been holding. The Prussians numbered 30,000. The fight was very bloody, and the Erench though beaten inflicted heavy losses on the Prussians. The contest raged tor upwards of two hours. tTc Diplomatic circular issued by Jules Favre has met the universal approval of the citizens, and the opinion is generally ex pressed that it is the ultimatum of the provis ional government. The Russian Ambassadors left the city to day to return to St. Petersburg. Florence, Sept. 18. Gen. Bixiu is marching on Rome. The endeavors to negotiate for a compromise prior to the occupation of Rome by the Ital ian troops have been fruitless. Toms. Sept. 19. Yesterday a courier from the English cab inet reached Roven, carry ing important des patches to Lord Syson. As the railways were cut the courier was obliged to go for ward on foot. There has been continuous fighting around Paris. LATE8T. Berlin, Sept. 19. The following is official: While Napoleon was at Namur, in Bel gium. he eulogized the discipline and courage of the Prussian soldiers, and said nothing could keep them out of Paris. Paris, Sept. 19. The Swiss, American and Belgian Ambas sadors decline to quit Paris. Special to the Sun. Paris, Sept. 18. Yesterday there was a grand review of the Garde Mobile and Na tional Guard. More than 300,000 men are under arms. There is great enthusiasm among the troops, with the exception of some regiments of provisional Garde Mobile, who refuse to cry “Vive la Republic,” by order of their officers. Three thousand Prussian uniforms were discovered this morning in three different houses. The people of Paris are generally dissatis fied with the government which failed to adupt revolutionary measures. A manifesto voted by twenty arrondisse mcnts of Paris was presented to-day to the Provisional government, and will he posted to-morrow on the walls of Paris. The mani festo requires the immediate envoi of the gen eral Commissioners in the provinces. Gen. Clouseret will be designated by the people of Paris at the request of the people of Lyons. It is doubtless whether the government will yield under the double pressure. The gov ernment is afraid that the Prussians surround ed last night a battalion of Parisians and franc tireursat Meany forest, therefore it cannot be set on fire. Evening.—City quiet, even to dullness. The boulevards are crowded with soldiers. No indications of disturbance are observable. Florence, Sept, 19. The Italians have occupied Onlondo. The troops on entering Valletre were received | with great enthusiasm. | London, Sept. 19. Jules Favre hns gone to the Prussian headquarters. Fears were entertained that he would not be received, but lie request: d Bismarck for safe conduct at least, and was answered favorably, lie set out immediately for Meuux, the present headquarters of the King. The Pall Mall Gazette to-day in its cor respondence from Kheims, dated the 12th, says :—Bismarck is anxious about the policy to he pursued by the l'. S. Government, now that France lias been declared a republic. It is said that Prussia craves Amerieam sym- : patliy but cannot treat with the French re- : public. The despatches of to-day destroy all pros- I pects of Baznincs escape. A handful of men only have escaped thus far. The siege of Toul is vigorously pressed. ! The place cannot bold out much longer. A correspondent of the Times writing from Paris tile ITtli says: Geu. Vinoy led 80,000 troops of the line last nigh to Vincennes, to dispute the passage of the Marne. The ad- ! ' anee of the enemy yesterday was not great, j 1 heir tro'.ps tire massed near the line, ready to erms at am moment. The corps is taking the course I indicated in a late letter, cross- J ing the Seine at Villencnvc and St. George. They will mass in the vicinity of Longean, to the rear of Vincennes, and established there they will push forward by Woodmendon to : plant batterie' on the heights of Claniart. and j if the city is bombarded will open tire upon Vangirard. From this point they can greatly damage the eitv as far us boulevardes Don licrt and Montparnasse. A Munkin, China despatch, dated Aug. 33, states that the Governor of the city was as nsinntcd by the natives on account of his well known sympathy for the foreigners. The Times correspondent writing from he- I fore Strasbourg, says: The preparations i for commencing the assault cannot be com- ! pletcd before four weeks. FROM PORTLAND. Portland, Sept. 19. Dr. Orclway, who was prosecuted criinin- i ally formal-practice, in mutilating a patient's j hand in an operation upon it, was acquitted to-day. The defence was that tile chloric cthes used affected him so that he was una ware of what lie did. FROM CONCORD. Concord. X. II., Sept. 19. Sad Accident. A Mrs. Odell of Lake Village, was run over at that place by the afternoon down train ori the Montreal railroad and killed. Destructive Fire.—Loss $50,000. Xeu bcrg, Sept. 19. The Powelton House, a summer resort one mile north of this place, owned by Mrs. Ilo mer Kumsdill, was totally destroyed by fire this morning, with all its contents. Loss, $30, 000; insured for $13,300. Two lady boarders lost diamond jewelry valued at $3,000. FROM SAN FRANCISCO. San Francisco, Sept. 19. Gen. Safford of Arizona, at the head of a party of volunteers, have taken the field against the Indians ol Southern Arizona, and a war of extermination lias commenced throughout the entire territory. Great excitement prevails at Prescott over rice gold discoveries in Bradshaw mountains. FROM MONTREAL. Montreal, Canada, Sept. 19. Berry declines Walter Brown's challenge for a single scull match.
