The ladies of the Free Baptist church will hold a social entertainment in the vestry of their church this evening. Admission free. A short walk, before the sun is up, on these crisp, bracing September mornings, will be found conducive to health. Some of the papers are comparing the re ceipts of the late State Fair witfe those of the New England Fair. This is most un-fair. S. M. Marshall & Co., Waterville, manu facture G. B. Broad’s patent shawl strap, which is the most convenient thing we have yet seen for cither ladies’ or gentlemen’s use. They are sold in lias city by Messrs. Turner & Hamilton, at their popular harness store on Water street. The water in the Kennebec was never so low as it is now. The Portland Press says there is more water flowing in the channel of the Presumpscot river at the present time than in the Penobscot and Kennebec togeth er.—Exchange. “How's that for high?” Why not include all the streams and rivers emptying into the Atlantic ocean ? Three men were gAinting Lynde's Hotel iu Rockland, standing' on a ladder slung by ropes, on Tuesday afternoon, when the lad der broke, precipitating two of the men to the ground. The other caught and held himself by a window. One who fell to the ground, Thomas Gettigan, is at the point of death, his skull being fractured. The other was injured in his hip. Two were the sons of John Karl, painter in Rockland. The Whig says that in June last the Com missioner of Fisheries employed Fruncis Blackman of Bradley to carry about a hun dred alewives, caught in the Penobscot river in Chimo, otherwise known as Leonard pond. There was a great deal of skepticism as to the result, and it waa quite uncertain until Sept. 11, when a large body of alewives was seen descending tiie stream into the Penobscot. In many places the fish were so plenty as to en tirely hide the bottom of the stream. They have grown very rapidly, hating attained, since they were hatched in June or July, a length of four inches and upward. . Yesterday noon, while Mr. Frederick Crow ell, foreman in the Maine Farmer office, was engaged in the press room of that establish ment, he met with an accident that will dis able him for several weeks. The new Cot trell & Babcock cylinder press wS*s in motion, and soma paper had caught on the inking rol lers. As Mr. Crowell attempted to pull the paper off, his right hand was caught by the rollers and his arm drawn between the rollers and the form of type, half way to the elbow, fairly stopping the press before the young man who was feeding it could do so by the ordinary machinery. Mr. Crowell's cries brought help from the counting room, but the roller gearing had to be unshipped be fore he could be relieved from his painful situ ation, Mr. Crowell enduring all the while the most excruciating suffering. His hand and arm were badly crushed, but l>r. Brickftt, who dressed his wounds, is confident that no bones were broken. It is very fortunate the press stopped before he was drawn under the cylinder. Foo* for lom Minds. We have before ua a copy of a “I'rimary Geography, arranged as a Heading Hook, with questions and answers attached," published in Haleigh, N. and used in southern schools, during the progress of the war, to teach the ‘‘jredng ideas bow to shoot.” It was pro cured by a gentleman from this city, who had some little “unpleasant controversies" with the children in that section ol a larger growth, who were in the habit of shooting something more dangerous than ideas. In this work the author has endeavored to simplify the study of Geography, and when she tells her young rea ders that “part of the surface of the earth is water and part land,” wo will begin to believe it. The young idee is taught that tho earth is round and turns round. “The reason we don't fall off the earth is that the earth draws us to it.” Spring comes once a year, accord ing to the best information of our geographer, although one year there happened to he two falls to the southern confederacy. “The trees blossom, the birds sing and build nests; men plow, and raise tobacco." “You could not drink seawater without making you sick.'' That is for very young readers who have never been to Boothbav. “Water is so use ful that man could not exist without. It bears ships up, anil forms the best drink in the world.” This idea, it must be borne in mind, was taught tho children of the south. It was quite novel. A portion of tho work dwells upon the races of men, and has this amusing paragraph on the African race : “The African or negro race is found in Africa. They are slothful and vicious, but possess little cunning. They are very cruel to each other, and when they have war. they sell their priaoners to the white people for slaves. They know nothing of Jesus. The slaves who are found in America are in much better condition. They are better fed, better clothed, and better instructed than in their native country. These people are descend ants of Ham, tho son of Noah, who was cursed because he did not treat his fattier with re spect. That would seem a hard sentence, but it was probably done to show other chil dren how wicked it was to treat their parents so. IVe cannot tell how they came to be black and have wool on their heads." The poor little innocent* down south who have been permitted to “fondle” these poor heathen “with a club,” have “lienrd of Jesus,” but never were guilty of possessing many of hi* characterUtics. Here is the author s in teresting “history of the United States :' “The United States was once the must pros perous country in the world. Nearly n liun dredyears ago it belonged to England, but the English made such hard laws that the people said they would not obey them. After a long and bloody war of seven years they gained their independence, and for many years were pros perous and happy. In tho meantime both English and American ships went to Africa and brought away many of these poor hea then negroes and sold them for slaves. In a few years the northern Status finding their cli mate too cold for the nogro to be profitable, sold them to the people living farther south. Then the northern people began to preach, to lecture and to write about the sin of slavery Tho money for which they sold their slaves was now partly spent in trying to pursuade the southern States to send their slaves back to Africa. And when tho territories were settled they were not willing for any of them to become slaveholding. This would soon have made the north much stronger than the south; and many of the people said they would vote for a law to free all tho negroes in I the country. The southern men tried to show them how unfair this would be, but still they kept on. In the year 1SG0 the Abo litionists became strong enough to elect one of their men for President. Abraharu Lincoln was a weak man, and the south believed he would allow laws to be made which would deprive them of their rights. So the south ern States seceded and elected Jefferson Davis for their President. This so enraged President Lincoln that he declared war, and 1ms exhausted nearly all the strength of the nation in a vain attempt to whip the south back into the Union. Thousands of lives have been lost but still Abraham is unable to conquer the 'rebels,' as he calls the south.” After this truthful bit of history to disabuse 1 the Southern mind of which it will take years of 1 missionary effort, we have this picture of the ; ‘‘Southern Confederacy | “These States lie south of the United : States, and possess a warmer climate. A I large portion of tlie country lies on the sea coast and is level and sandy. The confeder ate States possess few ships, and her cities do not grow so fast as if there was more com merce. This is a great country. The Yan kees thought to starve us out when they sent their ships to guard our seaport towns; but we have learned to make many things, to do without many others, and above all to trust in the smiles of the God of battles. The south ern people are noted for being high-minded and courteous. [They never stole any guns or U. 8. arsenals 1] Much of the work is done by slaves. These are generally well used, and often have as much pocket money ns their mistresses. The southern confeder acy is at present a sad country, but President Davis is a good and wise man.” We are informed that Richmond is the capital of the confederacy. “President Davis resides there, and congress meets thereto make laws.” It proved to poor Davis like a “moving tent,” and the members of Congress undoubtedly thought that here they were but as “pilgrims and strangers.” “The people of South Caro lina.” says the geography, “are noted tor their chivalry. You do not understand this, children? Well, when any one imposes upon them, their motto is to fight.” Louisiana “produced the gallant Beauregard, the gen eral whose name is familiar in even- house hold.” We are not informed what State pro duced the mineral waters of the pond in which he resolved at one time to water his horse. Arkansas “has suffered terribly dur ing the war. The enemy have ravaged nearly the whole of it, and the wrongs of the people are heart-rending. But there is a God of ven gence, and ere long these sufferers will be i avenged.” In speaking of the sufferings of the people of Tennessee, the fair author ven tures a burst of Southern patriotism : “Many hard battles have been fought here during the war for independence. But though she is oppressed now, and suffers much, no one fears for Tennessee. She is nobly doing her part, and when the war is ended she will t»e one of our best States. Many pure spirits are praying for peace and if we all humble ourselies as we should, we shall soon be (blessed with the glorious news—Peace! Peace!! Peace!!! O, who will not appreci- I ate Peace when it conies." But we cannot dwell at greater length upon the rich lessons of history found within the lids of this little* volume. The other day we gave an extract from a western paper, the editor of which had seen a copy of the work. In addition we give the following questions and answers from the appendix, as food for young minds: V- In wlmt division of the western conti- I nent do you live? A. In the southern confederacy. •J.

The Feeling of England Favorable to France. TIIE HORRORS OF STRASUOLHG. Montmody Captured after a Des perate Resistance. The Orleans garrisou evacuate the City and full back on Tours. FORMATION OF NEW ARMIES TO HARRASS THE PRUSSIANS DUR ING THE SIEGE OF PARIS. Troop* muttering in the principal cities in France. London. London. Sept. 28. The city of Stras bourg surrendered to the Prussians yester day afternoon at live o’clock. The rejection of nil peace propositions by Count Bismarck, the statement of Jules Favre that Prussia intends to reduce the re public to a third rate of power, the evident determination of conquests, the alleged un exampled barbarity ol the Germans to French people, cause a serious apprehension through out England, which now leans in sympathy toward France. Private cypher telegrams are now rapidly passing between Earl Granville and the Prussian and Austrian governments. A cabinet meeting has been called to-day to consider the propriety of immediate inter ference. Darmstnd. Darmstad. Sept. 28. A despatch received in this city at five o’clock on Mondoy after noon. announces that the privations and sutferingi of the besieged at Strasbourg liad assumed «o dreadful a character, that the veteran Gen. Ulrich was compelled to sur render to the enemy. Gn the entrance pf the General ar.d officers commanding info the city, the spectacle that met their gaze was most harrowing. Namur. Namur, Sept. 2s. A despatch hns been re ceived ibis aliernoonwitlia similar announce ment at Luxemburg, reporting that the Prus sians have captured Montmedy after a des perate resistance. Tours. Tours. Sept. 27. The garrison which oc cupied Orleans quietly evacuated that city yesterday, and are retreating in the direction of this point. The' retreating party will in all probability sale-ly reach here, as their march is not harrassed by the Prussians. Londou. London, hept. -t>. I he citizens of Mez ieres and Charlville are fugitives. Many have been welcomed by Belgium. The cause of the hegira is the threatened bombardment of those towns by the Prussians. Special to N. Y. Sun : Everywhere on the way Irom Paris the roads are covered with soldiers and recruits for the army de la Loire, which is in the way of formation at Tours, and another at l)ur lione, under Gen. Cluzert, which is about to he organized. From Marseilles to Lyons these two armies will harrass the Prussians during the siege. This is certainly the last hope ot France. The people are more ener getic and resolute than in other parts of France, and they have assumed the direction of their own affairs. The municipal Council ycJterday unani mously elected Gen. Cluzert Commander-in Chief of the army of the Khine. He advises the people to raise by taxation 30,Ot>0,000 francs, tor organizing the army, and if the money is granted he will accept command. The Prefect telegraphs daily with Paris, and the mails arrive regularly. We have received by baloon about SOU letters from Bazaine’s soldiers, saying they will wait until fair weather belore moving. 1 think the Prussians are now in very bad condition. There are GOO.000 persons under arms in Paris. Everywhere the people are anxious to fight. Two new armies being formed on the flank of the enemy, and their determination on the part of the people, to treat as traitors all who dare speak of compromising with Prus sia. The British cabinet meets Friday, to con sider the question of intervention. . The Prussian Corvitte Bertha sunk in the Euxive, utter a protracted engagement with three French frigates. Troops in Poland are reported to have been strengthened in consequence of sym pathy of the Poles with France. Advices from Tours represent confidence and enthusiasm prevails among the people and troops, hut impartial observers do not support these statements. 1 roups are mustering at the principal French cities unoccupied by the Prussians, and large bodies are moving up from tbe south. English Journals are tilled with re ports o! military movements in different parts of France. The provisional correspondence of Berlin says France vainly hopes to convert the de feat into victory. Further carnage would therefore he vain and impious. There is great rejoicing throughout tier many over the capture of Strasbourg. The new lioman government announces an appropriation of lifty millions to defray expenses of the inauguration of Uomc, as the capital ot Italy. The enthusiasm of the inhabitants is boundless, and the plcbiscitum is expected to be unanimous. The Pope will probably leave Home as soon as the result is ilcclar^l. Special to N. V. Times. London, Sept. 28. The fall of Strasbourg ' is considered to make but little difference in the question as to the power of resistance of France. Everything terms on the ability of Paris to defend Itself for three months. That time maintained, the Prussinns will never retain a fort iu the French territory. The whole country is rising in arms. The statement in the London Times to ; day, that M. Thiers is cMpoweded to oiler | the Russian government full latitude of con quest in the east, as price of intervention in the Franco-Prussian war. Is utterly unfound-1 ed, were Russia so disposed, sin- deairea n» 1 ' consent from France who 1 forceless. The l*ru?sians oceupamm ui \/r leans renders the removal of the government Imperative. It Is doubtless where they will go. To Toulouse there are objections sug gested by Prim's continued negotiations with Bismarck, and its contiguity to the Spanish frontier. PROM BOSTON. Boston, Sept. 23. Speech of Gen. Banks. General Banks spoke in Prescott Hall, in Charlestown to-night, on the political issues of the day. He said the disturbance In Eu rope, where republics arise in un hour, coup led with our own affairs, give renewed inter est in the future career of the American gov ernment. There had been no time when ex isting parties were more independent of the past than now. Every State had its Republi can government within the union. All doubts were dispelled and discussion dismissed. A marvel to the Monarchies of Europe. He claimed to speak for the Republican party in its most liberal aspect. Judging by its record there was no question it ltad grappled but had been decided wisely and for ihe benefit of the people. Taxation he considered the upper most subject in the minds of Totcrs. The sys tem was not perfect and required time on the part of the musses in contra-distinction to summary edicts of imperialism. The reduc tion in the past year had been eighty millions, and he said he w as in favor of a further re dnetion, especially in the income tax, which was the most onerous. The expenses of the government had been lessened from three hundred millions to one hundred and five millions, with the exception of pensions to soldiers and widows, made by tlie war. He felt himself bound to aid in still further lessening yearly outlay. The business of the country lie admitted was stagnant, ow ing to the burdens imposed. When perma nent provision was made for the payment of debt, business would revive. The labor question was alluded to as a problem that had puzzled the crowned heads of Europe. Congress two years ago passed an eight hour law to apply to government em ployees, for the purpose of testing the effect of the reduction in hours of labor, though op posed by law, officers of the government and heads of departments. The placing of shoul der-straps over mech nics in government workshops, was alluded to in no measured terms, and the speaker promised that no in fluence of his should be wanting to re-enact the law in that regard, which was lost during the late war. Many of the accomplishments of the Re publican party were enumerated, among them tile recognition from foreign governments ot the rights of naturalized citizens to the U. S. while visiting countries of their nativity. The black cloud of Asiatic immigration, he said, could not he looked upon without alarm, and future legislation would tend to guard the country from impending danger. He spoke an hour anil appeared in harmony with his Chartestown constituents. President Grant did not leave Boston until 3 P. M to-day. He will remain at Hartford to-night. FROM NEW YORK. Xew Yoke, Sept. 28. Admiral Furragut’a Funeral. The Farragut funeral Committee of Board of Aldermen, decided to-day in answer to a letter of Mayor Sliurtleffof Boston, that dele gates representing other cities will be rcce’d and assigned positions in the cortege. The preparations for the obsequies are proceeding satisfactorily, and the display will be more imposing than any since the Lincoln funeral procession passed through this city. The ceremonies will be conducted according to strict naval etiquette, and the remains will be borne from the landing on Canal St. to the Harlem depot on the shoulders of sailors who formerly served under him. The Brooklyn Navy Yard will be closed on Friday. Railroad Matters. 'J he test ease from a large number pending at 1 att rson, N- J., against the Erie Railroad Co. tor recovery for overcharges, and other demands on freight, has been decided in favor of the Company. Chas. C. Leigh, the anti-dram-shop candi date for Lieut. Governor, publishes a card exhonorating Gen. Woodford from the charge that the French Cable Co. paid him 85,000 for lobbying their charter through the Legislature of this State. He says the lobby through the whole atlair is quixotic, and that it would amount to nothing. President Roye of Liberia sailed for Eng land this afternoon. FROM WASHINGTON. Washington, Sept. 28. Representative Dawes arrived to-day on business connected with his Congressional duties, and to inquire into the probable esti mate* for next year. The Treasury department has prepared regulations for the transportation of imports from seaboard cities to the interior ports of entry, under the receut act of Congress. FROM SAN FRANCISCO. San Francisco, Sept. 28. Paymaster Samuel Dana of the U. S. arm_v, formerly of Massachusetts, died in this city yesterday. The total receipts of the Sanitary Fair which closed last night, were $80,000, ol which $47,000 has already been forwarded to Paris. The survey of the North Pacific ltailroad is completed to Puget Sound. The route is entirely practicable. The population of Oregon as shown bv the census returns, will he 91,000, and of Wash ington territory 30,000, FOREIGN NEWS BY CABLE. \1 Annin, Sept. 28. The vomito is spreading rapidly at Barce lona. Many of the people are leaving and business is at a stand still. Discussion continues to denounce the practical nullification emancipation law by Cuba. Tbe writer quotes from Havana Journals, advertisements of children for sale separate from mothers, and calls atten tion of the government to contracts which were publicly made in colonies for slave labor, which he affirms is practically the continuation of slavery, in violation of the express law of the land. Brisskls, Sept. 28. The Order St. Jean publishes a manifesto defending Belgium from the charge of inhu manity. London, Sept, 28. The V. S. steamer Plymouth has arrived at Southampton.

Opposite the Post Office, AUGUSTA, - - MATTTE. These Machines, by their simplicity, durability, and (he gre at range of w ork'they execute, nave gained a reputation, truly enviable. The famous success of the singer Manufactur ing Company has stimulated many other compan ies to put forth all their energies and taiepts to produce a sew ing machine that would eclipse or equal the Singer, but in every case they have sig nally tailed, as Is plainly shown by the met, that of all the travelling agents—“runners or, drummers” —of other companies, none have the assurance to lairn more than an equality with the Singer, eveR upon any special class of work. There are many sewing machines, now offered to the public, that have their good points, and are of much assistance to the housewife and the industri ous seamstress. Parties purchasing a sewing ma chine of any sort, find the improvement on the old fashioned way of sewing by hand so great and pleasing, that they are naturally, but erroneously, led to believe that they have the best* until (be spuli is broken by the introduction of the Singer of 1070 into a neighbor’s family, which is sure, ny the ta creaseti rapidity and ease w ith w hich it does every kind of plain or fancy sewing, to awaken them to a positive, although it may be silent acknowledge incut of the painful truth that there are very many varieties of work that are easily executed upon tho Singer, hut that they must either be content to do w ithout, or exchange, at a heavy pecuniary sacri fice, their curved-ueedled, frail-powered, unrelia ble-ten sioned, low speeded or ravel-stitcbed ma chine for a Singer .Setc Family Machine. Various expedients arc resorted to, that tho pub lic eye may be turned from the Singer for tho asur pose of introducing inferior machines—viz, “Tho Button-Hole Dodge,” “The Over-Seaming,” “The Double-Lock-Knot-Stitcb.” “.Elastic 8titob.” “Twist ed Loop,” “Self-Adjusting Tensions,” “FlingFinish and Beautifully Ornamented,” “Straight Needle,” “Stitch- Uike-ou-both-SIdes,” “Medals from Fairs,” “Vertical Feed Bara,” “Noiseless Running,” ‘‘SUent Feed,” and last and worst of all, the low-priced— “Family Shuttle Machines.” Many of these point* are deairnble, (and tho Singer excel is all in each individual speciality) but the greatest use made of these special point*, toby tiie retail agent w ho parades theta before the inex perienced purchaser with such fluent and earnest ftyle, as to entirely divert attention from the really important bearings of the case. While other inno cent local agents Ignorantly 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 Sewing Machine should took 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, irecly admitted by all sewtng machine dealers, that more than tiro-thirds of all the clothing worn in (Ms country by both sexes, whether custom made or ready made, is actually manufactured upon TUK SINGER sewing Machine 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 hieh are kept in constant operation “day and night,” none but highly skilled mechanics are employed. Newly improved machinery ie em ployed turning oiit each part finished to that me chanical 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 approved, are adopted, regardless of ex pense, w hile the many impractical humbugs that are patented, are left to grace some new wander and learn, the purchaser when too late, that lie 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 apo. They never buv editorial notices, or expend funds in “log-railing” 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 Booms, and leave the Mfafcc to find out their virtues in their own way. By this straight forward course they are now manuiacturing about four hundred per ilav, and at that rate, even, are unable to supply the demand.
