Mr. Crain should permanently remain its pastor,* and that he lias accepted tlq invit ation. Messrs. Blanchard lb > 1 of Gardiner, have on exhibition at their store, an apple grown in Western New York, which uu a • ures 13 1-2 inches in circumbrariiv ami weighs one pound. “How i« that f»*r 1 ig!i !” asks our informant. A gentleman who lives within live miU« of \ugusta has resided in Lincoln and Kennebec counties ; also in the town of Puudtown, W in throp, Readfield Kenm hoc and Manchester: he was horn in the house in which 1>«* now lives and has always lived. Our new Postmaster intends to nuke •i-v eral valuable improvements in r gar 1 to the distribution of the mail. By a special ar rangement he intends that the afternoon west ern mail will be ready for delivery tweny minutes earlier than formerly. He will take charge of the office this week.

The excavator employed in deepening and widening the river’s channel, was movi d up stream on Thursday, and is now engaged mi a fortnight’s job nearly opposite tiie railroad company’s paint shop. Gen. Thom was in the city on Thursday, an 1 ordered this “change of base,” the channel having In cxi perfected at the point where the machine lias hitherto been operating this season. The whole day Saturday in court was de voted to the trial of the criminal docket. State v8. John Welch, single sale, verdict guilty. State vs. the same, for same offence, nob pros’d. State vs. the same, search and seizure, verdict guilty. State vs. Levi Apple ton, search and seizure, verdict not guilty. State vs. Hiram S. James, common drunk ard, verdict not guilty. These cases were all brought up by appeal from the Police Court of Gardiner, and were defended hy I.. (’ ay Esq. Very little remains now to be tried on the criminal list except the capital case. The civil docket will he resumed this morn ing. Enough cases have been assigned, and notice given to the attorneys, to occupy the court the next two weeks. A new firm has been formed in Market square, at the old stand of Mitchell Harmon, by two enterprising and capable young men, who have recently become residents of our city, Mr. 11. A. 11. Chandler and Mr. A. li. lloardman. They intend to get a full sup ply of fresh groceries and will offer them at prices that will not remind the public of the late rebellion in this country, hut which will atl'nrd a narrow margin for profit to the seller and good bargains to the buyer. Our young men, in taking hold of business matters for themselves, especially when they are worthy, should receive the encouragement of a gen erous patronage, lly helping the young men to a prosperous business we are keeping them at home notwithstanding the invitations held out to them from other States. The first anniversary of the Capital Guards was celebrated on 1'rid ay afternoon, accord ing to the published programme. Several pleasant little features were connected with tho occasion not laid down in the order of ex ercises. Just before starting out on their street parade, the company were drawn up in line under “order arms” with ranks opened to tho right and left, when Mr. C. 11. Morton stepped forward and in a brief but appropriate speech presented Capt. Wyman with a hand some sabre, costing $50, the gift of the com pany. The captain was taken altogether by surprise, but received tbe gift with grace and dignity. The company then marched to Gran ite Hall to receive the gift of a handsome silk banner, a present from the ladies, and costing $75. A very pretty presentation speech was made by Mrs. Miller of this city, which was responded to by the captain. \Y itli the na tional banner upraised the company paraded through our principal streets, led by the Gar diner Hand, making a very fine appearance. Too company went through somo very ditB cult evolutions on Court square, where a dress parade was had. In the evening the company gave a grand military ball at Granite Hall which the boys pronounce a success. About seventy-five couples participated. Music was furnished by Berry’s Band of four pieces, and a good supper provided by Mr. II. Hart. Temperance Meeting In hardincr. 1 he Grand Division of the .Sons ol Tem pi ranee closed its session in Gardiner with a i public temperance meeting in Johnson Hull Thursday evening. The unfavorable state of the weather prevented a full attendance, al though some TOO p- r-ons were present. - Hun. Joshua Gray called the meeting to ord.-r and nominated Hon. John Berry as : President of tl.c evening. Mr. Berry apolo gize d lor the unavoidable absence of two of the >p -aker> v\ ho h d !»» en announced — Hon. .Va! Dow ai d Joshua Nyo.
