On and on it marches, till the warm winds of the plain sweep up to it. Here the hot sun greets it. It eats into the bold front of the glacier, until it changes its form and pace. Meanwhile a river is making, which feeds the speed ot the huge monster that formed it. Lower and lower the glacier creeps; higher and higher the river rises. It grows with the day; it grows with the night. It becomes a stranger to all manner ol decorum. It springs again and again at the rot■ i,\ sen tinels above it, and finally crumbles them into its bosom. It up-roots the trees that stands in its pathway. It sears the breast of the mountains with its terrible iceberg batteries. It licks up the soil of the smaller valleys, and deepens that of the larger ones. ' It dashes through the nar row gorges, changing into boulders the huge rocks that oppose its progress. It is everywhere a power for new and radical changes.—Overland Month It/.

So f;ir as wo have tiny intelligence we have no report of riots, battles, wounds, bruises or deaths, at or about the polls, on account oi the election in any way, in New York city- The fearful tal s that were lohl of what would come to pass in tho beleaguered eily on account of United States troops having been ordered to that vicinity in order tiiat peaceable and law abiding citizens might vote without expo sure to insult, intimidation and violence, and a fair election be held, have not been verified or we are mistaken. It is h mat ter of supreme gratification, anti peihaps the most important result of all the elec tions, that the majesty of the law has been vindicated in New' York, and tho fact in contestably proved that a fair election is possibly, by the aid of national authority, ■ even among the duns of thieves and ruffians inttiej**iWi^tflyi»ifnmons city that sittetli upon the waters of Manhattan bay. Batloorting has recfived a fresh impetus from the Franco-Prussian war, and promises soon to develop into a first-class science. A few facts concerning balloons may be of in terest. The discovery of the levity of hydro gen was made by Cavendish in 1 ?(!(>, and iu 1782 Cavallo, the electrician, tried the exper iment of raising small balloons by its aid. The next year the brothers Joseph and Stepticn Montgolfier tested balloons on o large scale, anJ I)e hazier subsequently as cended, followed by Messieurs Charles am; Hubert. In 17e5 M. Blanchard and l)r, John Jeffries of Boston, Massachusetts, crossed the Knglish Oh nncl and landed ill the forest of tiuines, France. During the Trench he volution each of the republican ar mies was furnished with a balloon for the purpose of reeonnoitering the enemy, but the attempt was subsequently abandoned. The part balloons have played in the present war is know n by every elaily paper, in w hich the iiue “by balloon lruiu Paris" bus become as common as “by telegraph.” That some goud will come* out of their use ia the emergency of the Parisians can hardly be doubted. At any rate, it lias demonstrated that lenal nav igation is not nearly so chimerical an atfaii a* some would have us suppose. The Washington correspondent of the New York Herat 1 says “it is alleged that some oJ the bitter newspaper articles recently pub lished criticising President (Irani's action on the question of assessing clerks, were written by Mr. I’uient Commissioner Fisher, wiio is a brother-in-law of ex-Secretary Cox. Mad ame Secretary Cox, alter perusing one ol these Fisher articles, cut it out and enclosed it to Mrs. Gruut, anonymously. Unfortu nately for Mrs. ( ox, however, she accident ally put the obnoxious article in un envelope bearing the (amity monogram of Cox, and of course Mrs. Grant immediately knew whence it came. Further, she recognizes the caii graphy of Mad?ime Cox, from whom she had received letters; therefore, w hen Mrs. Grant glanced over the article she naturally felt in dignant, and put it into u Grant envelope with the simple hut ■ putting words ‘Heturned to Mr*. Cox, with the compliments of Mrs. Grant.’ Since then the two ladies, 1 am in formed, have not spoken.” The Young People's Helper is the name of £ handsome and inlescstuig paper for chil dren, published by A. l*0pe Vose, Dockland, it is a monthly, and the price is only 50 cts. pe-ry^G Parent* will find It an entertaining and useful publication for their boys and girls.

The value of the present iron-clad fleet of England amounts to £3,177,000. The walls of Rome arc covered with edicts, ■ proclamations and propositions of all sorts. ! A western editor is raving about the “latu j bient pastimes of boreal corruseations.” On Thursday night the head of one of the | largest counterfeit gangs in the United States was convicted in Trenton, N. J., and was sent to the State Pri,on. A Boston paper locates the Maine State ; Prison in Portland. There are some Bos- j tonians who have a better acquaintance with j its location. The Postmaster General will repeat in his annual report his recommendation for the i abolition of the franking privilege. The veiled woman of Egypt and Turkey j are exhibiting a dawning appreciation of their “rights” by demanding air and sunshine. There will be fifty-three Sundays in the year 1.S71, the year beginning and ending on Sunday, it ought to be a good year arnica happy one. No action has recently been taken by our government in relation to the settlement ot the Alabama claims, nor has the British gov ernment made any new advancement in that direction.' The report of a boy in New York religious ly inclined is considered a hoax. This one, it appears, committed suicide in order to seethe mysteries of the other world, or to get away from New York. Mrs. Mary A. Marble, of Tlaistow, N. II., was found dead behind the bar of her hus band's drinking shop the other night, looking 1 as though she had been strangled; but Marble 1 says lie knows nothing about it. General do Rodas is still Captain-General of Cuba, and the report that he was about to leave the island is pronounced erroneous. Four democratic Congressmen—one in Ohio and three in Pennsylvania—were elected by the ‘.‘skin of their teeth,” their aggregate ma jorities being only 116. j il is rumored in Washington that the Chief !

The Lieutenant-Governor of Manitoba has issued an order for the arrest of Riel and his companions wherever the officers find them, and if they resist to shoot them. ( A fiery volcano of large proportions has j suddenly appeared in the interior of Mexico. , Whether its appearance had anything to do with the recent earthquake in this quarter the scientists have not informed us. A series of sermons by evangelical clergy men has been arranged to be delivered in Mu sic Hall, Itoston. The course was opened by Rev. Phillips Brooks, the popular Episcopal preacher of that city. He had a large au dience. Si* students of the scientific department in Dartmouth College have been given an in definite vacation for ducking a freshman un der the college pump. The faculty express a determination to stop all forms of “hazing," even if whole classes are lost from the insti tution. James E. Whipple, a young man, member of he society of Friends and of the Univer sal Peace Association, was arrested in Mystic, Ct., recently, and lodged in the .Norwich jail for refusing to pay his military tax, it being a matter of conscience with him not to support war or forms of war. Christopher Bush, who lives a mile and a halt from Parma Centre, N. V.. has not tast [ ed food in thirty-seven days. He is eighty lour years of ago, nnd is subject to fits of de ' rangement. Thirty-seven day s ago he re fused to eat, and all efforts to persuade him to | take any kind of food were unavailing. For the flrvt tew days after he commenced his re markable fast he drank water occasionally, but tor the past fourteen days or more he re fused to drink. Jack Baxter, a white man, killed Alfred Granger, a negro, in Selma, Ala., the other day, when the negroes gathered in large num bers, took Baxter from the sheriff and hung him. General Pettus called out a company i who witli difficulty restrained the whites from | retaliating, and prevented a general riot, j It is probable that the next Congressional | apportionment will reduce the number of Con gressmen in Vermont to two. This fact has l raised an interesting and curious controversy. I By the constitution, after the present session j of the legislature, it will not meet again till October, 1*72, the month succeeding the elec j tiuns that year for Congressmen. It is pro I posed to re-district the State at the present ses 1 sion, to save the extra session, but this propo sition is opposed on the ground that, if the State is re-districted it will hasten a reduction i by Congress of the representation. 77/,TON AND FULTON. The Boston papers say the Tilton and Ful ton controversy is ended. As the result of an investigation made by a number of Mr. Fulton’s friends, who met at the Brooklyn Union office, November 4, at which Mr. Til ton’s informant and Mr. Fulton were present face to face, the following report was finally adopted: .4 Card In the Public.—Much has recently been published in reference to the controver sy- between Theodore Tilton, Esq., and Rev. J. D. Fulton, and it may interest the public to know tiiu result of a couterenco between these two gentleman in the presence of their friends; lienee the following card namely : 1. That Mr. Tilton’s informant, a gentle man of intelligence, refinement ami veracity, does in tlie most solemn manner reaffirm his original statement, which Mr. Fulton as sol emnly denies in his presence. 2. That the Rev. Dr. Arraitage affirms that Mr. Fulton never preached for him in Norfolk street on a Sunday evening in lboo. to the best ot his recollection, but that I c did preach tor Him on a Tuesday night in 1853 or 1854. 3. As the alleged transaction dates hack to the year 1852, ami there have already ap peared in this conference several discrepan c.es in matter of memory and statement by equally honorable men concerned iu the mat ter, naturally arising from the lapse of time involved, we concede to the parties at issue the doubts arising from ail such discrepancies, while neither of them abates a jot neither of the allegation or the denial, but both leave llie public to give credence to which side they may choose, while tho present purpose of Mr. Tilton and Ur. Fulton, mutually, is to dis miss llie whole sui ji ct. 4. The eonfer« nee of friends referri tl to in the above are firmly pvrsuadtd that all ti e gentlemen named above have no disposition to swerve from the truth in any measure whatever, but mean to be true and honrahle in their statements, which, as far as no* ap pears, cannot be readily harmonized nut ol a court of justice at this distant date from the alleged transaction. Brooklyn, Nov. 4, ls'O. (Signed) Thomas Armitage, James U. Simmons, E. S. Stacv. The above is a true record ot the findings of our friends in conference. Jl’STIN If. Fcr.TON, Theodore Tilton. 1VITSO-OL YCERINE EXVL OS 1 OX. The Painesville (Ohio) Telegraph of I burs- j day morning gives the following details of i the terrible nitro-glycerine explosion which j took place at Eairporl on Tuesday afternoon. ; Tuesday afternoon, ut about a quarter to j five o’clock, the people of Vainestilte were I startled by a sudden concussion of the door* and windows anil jarring ot buildings, as though some heavy body bad been burled | against, or a heavy tornado of wind liadsud- j denly struck them, w ith a force almost sutb- | cient to crush them in. This was followed ! by a dull, heavy reverberation, similar, yet still unlike, the firing ot heavy guns at a ; distance. Buildings were jarred, and trem- 1 bled as though shook by an earthquake. In stantly people were seen rushing into the ( streets to ascertain the cause; many were seized with a sudden panic and fear that we were being visited by those disasters. The l reverberation and rolling sound as of distant thunder was still preemptible alter many ot tire people bad got into the streets, at least from three to five minutes after the fir.-r con cussion was felt. An immense cloud of Idood red smoke was first seen to arise in the direc tion nf Eairport, and then to change its color to a lighter hue, and spread ilselt out in the heavens. This terrible phenomenon at once seemed to explain the cause of the great com motion. All at once understood that it was either the explosion of die uitro glycerine manufactory or of their magazines. Teams were immediately brought into requisition, and quite a number of our citizens started lor the scene. On arriving at Eairport it would lie impossible to describe the scene wbieli the town presented. Thu whole place seemed at first a complete mass of ruius. The buildings were shattered, the doors blown oil' their hinges, tits windows all smashed m. plastering oil', crockery, lamps and looking glasses demolished, chimneys torn down,; stoves overturned, and everything in the -houses in utter chaos. But it the scene was tt rrible within, it was still more so w ithout. The whole population nearly were in the stieets, wild and crazed. The crash had come so suddenly, and the concussion had been so great, so atfeeting their minds and nerves, that many of them for the time were perfectly insane. Some ot the men we are told, were /or a few moments attacking each other, and women were insanely stiugglmg, while all were loudly weeping and walling. Children were running wildly about, scream ing in terror, as if seeking protection, while others were struggling and screaming in the arms of their mothers, who were rushing hither and thither, not knowing what to do or It is said to have been one of the raoit heart-rending scenes which could be imagined In a few moments it was ascertained lllut both the magazines of the Glycerine Company, situated on the west side ot the river, had exploded, and that four men w ho were at work in or near them were blown to atoms. And here a new scene of terror was witnessed The cru s and grief ot the wife and little ones of one of the lost men, on learning Ins late, tilled the stoutest hearts with j*itj.-. it was a scene never to be forgotten. Great indignation is expressed against the proprietors of the glycerine establishment. Tile firm numbers four or five men, mostly from Titusville, Pennsylvania. Une of the firm, Mr. Wheeler, started to go from here to the scene of the dicUstv r, hut was met by a wagon load ot excited and infill iated individ uals, who threatened to lynch hint, lie was advised by friends that it would not be sale lor liim to go to Fair port until the excitement subsided, and lie returned to Painesville. The immediate cause of the explosion is not and never will be known. It is supposed that Mr. Malone was digging a pit tor a new magazine, and that one ot the men were en gaged in putttug glycerine into cans from the jars in the magazine ready tor shipping, while the other two Were in some way assisting, by carrying glycerine backward and forward be tween the magazines and the manufactory. The explosion of the two magazines, which were near each other, was simultaneous, so far as people in the vicinity could judge, they bearing but a single lepoit. Tue men were all blown to atoms. So tar as we have beard only one piece ot flesh lias been found, not larger than a man’s hand, and a bone, ap parently part of a rib. The concussion, or force of the explosion, preceded the report, so that the first warning that the people of Fairfield bad was the crash ing in of their doors and windows, the tailing of plastering, upsetting ot furniture, an.i racking and cracking of the buildings. Peo ple bout in and out of doors, were thrown violently uown, and several were made for a short time insensible. There is not a bouse or building, as we understand, lelt m Fair port, which is now in anywise tenantuidc. Thursday night was' a terrible ouo for the people of Fuirport, who were turned into the street instantly, and exposed to the cold winds of the night. To add to their terror it was reported that there was at least a thousand pounds of glycerine in the manufactory, al most iu their midst, which might at any time explode, aud finish the destruction of property with pet hups greater loss ot life. Some lelt the place und lied to Painesville for security, while others gathered in groups in their brok en homes and tattered houses, wearing the night away as best they could. The explosion was Hit in BufTalo, a dis tance of one hundred and sixty miles. Sodn alter it occurred, a despatch was sent over the wires from that city to Cleveland, and other points on the lake shore, asking it they had been again visitid by an earthquake. In Painesville the shock was .very severe, es pecially in the south part of the town, win re the clay or hard-pan comes very near the sur face. In one small house we have heard of. things were thrown from the shelves, audit bedstead moved nearly two feet. It is sup posed that the explosion must have reached the clay or hard-pan, some thiity feet below the magazine, with such force that houses built on that strata, though some mill s dis tant, were more affected than those on the sand much nearer. It is believed that the Postmaster-General will recommeud in his annual report, the issue of postal cards for the public use similar to those now used in Germany and lately intro .dttced into the postal service of Great lirit ain. “These cards have a place for direction, name and place. They are about two and a half by three and a hall inches, with ruled lines, arid a postage- stamp printed on one ot the corners. They will probably be sold at two cents and will liud here, u- in I.nrope, abundance of purchasers. Kept in the pocket book, a message may be w-itten on them while on a street corner, in a cjr or carriage, and they may Ik- dropp'd into the n.-arest post Imix, or thrown into the mail car, and thus hundreds of messages will be sent by mail whiofi are not sent now simply because the materials for writing arc not at hand or it i> too much trouble to write a letter, winch u always to be more or less a formal document. These hastily scribbled curds have added largely to the Knglish postal revenue and proved a public convenience of no mean character.” Sidney Smith, in his work on moral philoso phy, speaks in this wise of what inch lose for the want of a little brass, as it is termed : “A great deal of talent is lost to the world for the want of a little courage. Every day sends to the grave a number of obscure men who have only remained in obscurity because their timidity lias prevented them from making a first effort, and who, if they could only have been induced to begin, would in all probability have gone great lengths in the ca reer ol fame. The fact is that in order to do anything in this world worth doing we must not stand shivering on the bank, thinking ol' tiie cold and danger, but jump in and scram ble through as well as we can. It will not do to be perpetually calculating risks and ad justing chances.” Domestic Xcms. According to our exchanges the religious interest awakened at the Camp-meetings is extending East and West. The Maehias Union says a good work is going on in Ma rion. Edmunds, Whiting, Mast Maehias, Ma thias and Columbia. Nine young persons were baptised in Armstrong District, Sunday, Oct. 2:id, making eighteen in that vicinity, who have thus proiessed Christ. Olliers are coming, says the Union. Quite a revival is in progress at Columbia under the labors of Rev. B. M. Mitchell. A large number were baptised last Sunday and more are to go tor ward soon.' A most singular accident came to the no tice of tile Argus Tuesday, on Commercial St., Portland. A gentleman was hurrying towards the 1’. S. & 1’. Railroad station, evi dently to take the afternoon train, and to regulate his speed, probably, he looked at his watch, a gold cased one. As he had fin ished looking, a billet of wood, carelessly thrown from an upper window in a block, descended and most thoroughly crushed one ••repeater,” even outside ot New \ork. Col. Z. A. Smith, editor of the Somerset Reporter, gave a lecture at the Maine Central Institute, l’ittslleld, on the evening of the 4th inst; subject—The Capture of Richmond, and the Surrender of Lee's Army. The Lew iston Journal says it was a stirring lecture and would not fail to he appreciated by any audience in Maine. The Lewiston Journal says Rev. Henry Libbcy of Leeds, p iptized thirteen persons on Sunday last,—the result ot an interesting re vival in that place. Among the number were the father and the brother-in-law of the offic iating clergymen. Mr Libbcy has been la boring for some time in that place, and with maiked success. The St. .John^bury l uieuotuan say a laying 1ms been begun on the road from that place to S wanton, one of the links of the Port land & Ogden.burgh. The iron is upon the ground for laying the track from the junction — just South of the depot—withthc Passump sic to Fairbanks' village. We it arn from the Times that Noqua-sot Lake, about two miles front Bath, on the line of the Knox & Lincoln Railroad, has been se cured by the Arctic Ice Co., organized under a State charter, with a capital of §100,000, for the purpose, in connection with said railroad, of cutting and storing ice. The British bark Trait de Union, Irom Ban gor tor Port-au-Prince, went ashore on Monroe's Island, near Owl's Head, on Friday night.- The steam-tug Ralph Ross, with a powerful steam-pump and wrecked crew, from Bangor, went to her assistance, but it is feared she will be a total loss. At Columbia Falls, ,L II. C'randon, Lsrp, lias put up the frame of a double-decked brig of about ISO tons. Hiram Hunt, F.sq., will commence a vessel at Robbinston, of about 050 tons this month, to bu launched next spring._._ A formal opening of the lloulton Branch Railroad took place Tuesday the 8th. The exercises consisted of an excursion from St. Andrews, St. Stephen and Calais, in which several hundreds participated. Mr. Daniel W. Fessenden, the clerk ol courts for Cumberland county, has sold his residence in <5orham and contemplates resid ing in Portland.
