Journalism, Politics, Religion, General Howard and Brother, The Rebellion, Ac. Lewiston, June 25th, 1802. Editor* of the Portland Press:—Your neatly printed journal has made Its appearance in our village, and hundreds are seen eagerly perusing its columns, to find out what it says in relation to the important questions which now agitate our great Republic. From ail I can learn on the subject, the masses of the nonnlp in this vlHnltir hitrhlv Pfimmoml trnn r politic*! doctrines, and wish you great success in your new enterprise. Our paper here is a beautifully printed sheet, and its mechauicul execution does much credit to the publishers; but the headings in the news department are sometimes more startling than the dispatches will justly warrant. A groat man once said in answer to a political opponent, who had boast ed of what he intended to do, “It is not the first time in the history of the world that the war did not come up to the high sounding manifestoes.” But let me not be misunder stood. It is only a single fault to which I have alluded, nnd if no more can be found, our Jour nal is quite as fortunate as most newspapers In our land. Let the publisher* be assured that the hint is a friendly one and given in the utmost kindness. We feel proud of our Jour nal, and thank the proprietors for their spirit and enterprise. One would hardly imagine, wliiie walking through our streets and witnessing the evi dences of thrift and prosperity in many branches of trade and industry, that the coun try was engaged in a war of such magnitude, as to arrest the attention and fix the eyes of the whole civilized world upon us. The truth is, we do not yet realize the greatness of the con test in which we are engaged, to sustain the life of our nation; especially we do not who live so far away from the battle fields. Hut the rebels begin to realize it, and to feel that the end is drawing near. But my object is not to discuss such matters. The political sea is quite calm in this region, although the people begin to cast about for candidates to represent their interests in Con gress. So far as I can learn, public opinion here seems to be concentrating on J udge E. T. Little, of Auburn, to fill the vacancy occa sioned be the resignation of Judge Walton.— Mr. Little Is a whole hearted Republican, and would fUl the vacancy to the entire satisfaction of the people in his district He is well post up on the questions of the day, and his talents admirably qualify him to occupy such a posi tion. Religious matters here have recently assum ed an interesting aspect, and hundreds are anxiously inquiring “what they shall do to be saved.” Many have made up their minds and resolved upon a new course of life. A few sabbaths ago more than one hundred were immersed in a single day in the waters of the Androscoggin—a greater number than was ever baptised in one day, in our State, if not in New England. The churches have been much united In the revival, and the work is still progressing. Many converts will join other churches whose members do not believe that immersion is the only door that opens in to the evangelican church. Surely a great change has come over the spirit of hundreds, and no doubt much good has already been done. I often see Gen. Howard and his younger brother at the Maine Hotel, Auburn, who fought so bravely at the battle of Fair Oaks. The General’s arm Is fast healing up and his health is quite good. He owns his country has given him a military education, and he feels it to lie his imperative duty to light its battles, and if need be, to lay down his life upon its altar. He expects to be strong enough, ere long, to enter the battle field again and to lend his aid in crushing out this wicked rebellion. The wound his brother re ceived was on ugly one, and heals slowly. It was occasioned by a Minic ball through his thigh, boring a hole clear through nearly as large as an iuch augur makes, and probably grazing the bone, lie is patient and pleasant in his affliction. I asked An iiow near he was to the rebels whoa he received his wound. “ They were all rouud me,” was his reply. Before this, he says they had driven the reb els through the swamp' and upon higher ground, where he and the General received titer wounds. It was a terrible Imtile, more terrible titan we dreamed of in our philosophy. To hear young Howard’s story of the bloody fight makes the blood run cold and gives one some idea of the awful struggle. The rebels fought desperately and stood the fire of our artillery, readily filling up the ranks as fust as our grape and Canister mowed them down, and showing a Isild front worthy of a better cause. They can stand fire well, much bettor than they received the bayonet charge- The gleam of Federal steel strikes terror Into their hearts, and their legs are nerved by fear and hurry their bodies away from danger. Such are some of the cliaractcrislics of the rebel sol diery. The people congratulate you on such a good beginning in journalism, and hope your efforts will be crowned with success. And they sec no reason why such a paper as yours is and promises to be, should not prosper and live to a good old age, and become one of Lite insti tutions of the Pine Tree State. *„* Letter from Farmington. To the Editors of the Portland Daily Press: —Here comes the Daily Pkess, which has been so anxiously waited for during the three or four weeks since the announcement of the intention to publish the same, with its clear l.vpe, goodly sire, clean and bright appearance; but, better yet, its healthy and vigorous tone —a voice for our contry in out-spoken words upon its every page. Welcome! That word for “The Maine Regiments in the Field”ought to give hundreds ofsubscriliers. It is timely, and why some such word has not long ere this been sounded fourth in clarion notes, and claimed the just and dear bought meed to our ever brave soldiers, by the whole Maine press, is l>eyond my kon. I have been pained while tracing out their positions in many of the sangniuai-y contests where our Maine troops have been planted, either as a front or rear wall, and so nobly, so bravely acted their part, to see that only the large hearted officers, all nearly, except the bills of mortality, were still as death in their praise. It is true there has been, here and there, a complimentary word for the Maine Boys; and how could it be otherwise ? The sturdy sons of Maine—the formers are not to be, and even are not now forgotten, but a kind cheering word is to be found for them. 1 cannot see why there should not be words for them in a Daily as well as others when you can send it a hundred miles away to them on the same day, so that they can break the mo notomy of labor’s dull care, in evening twi light, and while away a pleasant hour on its receipt. So, too, the wiudows of light and sunshine are not to be left out, but they, and the young Maineites must liave astory,asoug, a Mrs. Grundy’s sayings, with all the inten tions of marriage in the land. Wishing you abundant success, I remain J your8- O. W. Truk. A Woman of Good Tastk.—You sec this lady turning a fold eye to the assurances of shopmen and the recommendations of millin ers. She cares not how original a pattern may be. if it be ugly, or how recent a shape, if it be awkard. Whatever laws of fashion dictates, she follows a law of her own, and is never lie hind it. She wears very beautiful things which neople generally suppose to lie brought from Paris, or. at least, made by a French milliner, but which is often bought at the nearest town and made up by her own maid. Not that her costume is either rich or new; on the contra ry, she wears many a rich dress, but it Is al ways pretty, and many an old one, but is al ways good. She deals in no gaudy confusion of colors, nor does she affect a steady sobriety; but to see cither refreshes you with a beauti ful contrast, or composes you with a judicious harmony. Not a scrap of tinsel or trumpery appears upon her. She puts no faith In velvet bauds, or gilt buttons, or twisted cording. Slie is quite aware, however, Unit the garnish is as important as the dress; oil her inner borders are delicate and Irtish; and should anything peep out w hich is not intended to lx; seen, it is quite as much so as that which is. After all. there is no great art, either in her fashions or her materials. The secret simply consists in her knowing the three grand unities of dress— her own station, her own age, and her own points. And no woman can’ dress well who does not After this, we need not say that who ever is attracted by the costume will not lie disappointed in tin- wearer. Site may not lie handsome, nor accomplished; liut we will nu swer for her being gooil-tcmpcred, well in formed, thoroughly sensible, and a complete lady. — A returned prisoner, who was a member of the Third Regiment, and who was taken at Bull Bun, witJi whom we conversed a day or two since, confirms the statements of the bru tal treatment the prisoners received nt the hamls of the rebels. lie came very near being shot himself, while in the Tobacco factory ut Richmond. He thinks if he goes back, he will never take a prisoner. —Fight hard against a hasty temper. An ger will come, but resist it stoutly. A spark may set a house on Are. A At of passiou may give you cause to mourn all the days of your life. Never revenge an injury. lie that revengeth knows no rest; The meek possess a peaceful breast. ^ NOTICE.

HALL, of the Aroostook Herald. The Portland Daily Press is intended to be an enterprising, vigorous and live Daily Morning Paper, containing the latest and fullest news by mail and telegraph. THE MAINE STATE PRESS Is a large, well-filled, carefully edited, and neatly printed weekly paper, intended specially for general circulation throughout the State. Both of the above named papers will labor to inculcate, in no dictatorial spirit, sound political prin ciples and to promote the material interests of the State, and of the City of Portland as its interests twine with, and are inseparable from, those of the 8tate. Politically, the Press will give an earnest, cordial, and generous support to the administration of Abra ham Lincoln, who in little more than one year, has indellibly impressed himself upon the nation’s heart as an incorruptible 'patriot, an inflexible Chief Mag istrate, and an honest man; the ability of whose ad ministration is most signally exhibited, not [only In the matchless operations of our army and navy, but in tbo unparalleled fact that, in the midst of this gigantic rebellion,'our Government securities are selling at a premium. It will zealously labor to ex hibit aud defend sound Republican principles, and, inasmuch as political organizations have become a necessity in carrying into effect great principles of political economy, and inasmuch as ;thc Republican party which, in the brief chapter of its history already written, has successfully refuted the allegation of its eucmies that its designs and tendencies were sec tional, and triumphantly [vindicated Its claim to a Just and liberal Nationality, has remained steadfast In its devotion to the Union while other organizations have so generally become infected with a disloyal spirit, and inasmuch as it is the only party which at preaeut seems competent to conserve the great prin ciples underlying all free Governments, the Presa will cordially sastain the organization of that party not with a design to foster a mere pari Iran spirit, but in the full coniciousness that it embodies the true principles npon4whieh our government rests, aud af fords tho only available means of accomplishing such results as a lofty patriotism imperatively demands. It will neither seek nor endorse any compromises .a but will inculcate loyalty to the great central idea of all true democracy—that the majority must govern. Upon the exciting question of Domestic Slavery, it may be proper to say, that while the Press will sanc tion no interference with the constitutional or legal rights of loyal men, it will neither >i>ologize for an evil which constitutes tho foulest blot upon our national character, nor attempt to resist the tide of events that seems destined to sweep from existence an institution which is the greatest anomaly in a free government. The emancipation of slavery in the federal Capital, tho oo-operatiou of the Federal with the loyal State governments, to secure gradual eman cipation, as proposed by President Lincoln, and all other constitutional measures looking to a peaceful removal of our greatest “moral, political and social evil," will fiud in the Phene a generous and hearty support. While thus distinctly announcing the general course proposed for the Prices, and intending that, alike in war and in peace—in oar country’s peril and in its triumph, it shall speak with no uncertain voice, we do not lose sight of the ffcct that true men have hon estly differed, and that, coming by different routes they now find themselves travelling parallel roads; anti, instead of seeking to widen the differences be tween those who are required by a common patriot ism to act in concert, the Prkfn will labor hopefully to encourage unity of purpose and harmony of act ion ainoug all loyal men. Aside from its political department, tho Frees will be earnestly devoted to the advancement of the best interests of tho city and State. Its Local Depart ment will in no case be neglected. Particular atten tion will be given to the Commercial and Maritime interests. It will be the aim of its conductors to make it an indispensable institution of the State, and a ge nial and welcome visitor in every work-shop, count ing-house, and family circle. The Editors, not un known to the people of Maine, will give their undivi ded energies t» the work before thorn, and labor to make such a paper as the city of Portland, the State of Maine, and the exigencies of the times demand— one tliat shall be true to the popular instincts. Tub Portland Daily Pesss is printed with en tirely new type, on a sheet as largo as that of any daily in Maine, and issued every morning, (Sun days excepted,) at £5 per annum. Subscriptions for less than six months, GO cents per mouth. Tub Maine State Press, large, neatly printed, and well tilled with the news of the week, and orig inal and selected Political, Agricultural, Literary and Miscellaneous reading, making it specially adapted to tho Family Circle, will be issued weekly, at £1.G0 per year, idvariably in advance.

TIIE FORTY-F1HST VOLUME OF T1H8 PAPER Will Commence July 29. All persons who now subscribe to the Mirror by paying 82 shall have a receipt to the dose of Volume XLI—ending July 29, 1868—being almost a year and one quarter. We arc happy to announce Eev. Messrs. Pond, Shepard, Harris and Smith. Professors in Bangor Theological Seminary, as stated contributors to tbo columns of this paper. This paper is devoted to the division of moral, re ligious. educational, and such other intelligence as pertains to the welfare of society. Its foreign and domestic news is made up to tho hour (Monday noon) of going to press, and is suffi ciently general to meet the wants of those who tako no other paper. The fourth page is appropriated to the most inter esting Literary, Scientific, aud Commercial miscella ny that can tie gathered. It lias a department expressly for children. It is intended to be a safe family newspaper; with nothing to offend the most fastidious—neither cherishing a morbid appetite, nor catering to a perverted taste. We do not claim for it that it is the otdfgt, the tar ge*t, the m imt, even the beet paper in the world: or that the Church and State would fall without it. We claim for the Mirror that it is a Christian paper. It aims to be a true reflector of Bible principle and practice; aud in the correction of moral evils and the renovation of Society, to hold forth the true remedv. It can be said of our paper that while its correspond ence is not meagre, its epitome of news and compact items of iutcrest is inferior to that of no other paper, and its abstract of valuable article's in American and Foreign quarterlies lias supplied a place not tilled by an v other religious print. If any want a |»i»er that can safely be a companion on the Sabbath, that gives an unprejudiced view of public atfkirs. that aids to be a transcript of the age w ithout identifying itself with its errors, that chroni cles to minuteness religious aud revival news, that holds firmly the doctrines and practice of a proto* tant Christianity and can be safely put into the hands of the young, we ask them to take the CHRiSTiaar Mirror. This being pre-eminently a Family Journal is one of the best channels for advertisements relating to Books, S-Jes, Legal Notices, aud all articles of general con sumption . Weekly papers generally, and especially religious ones, are less likely to be destroyed than those more secular—they are read more in families than Dailies— they are taken home and preserved, to be examined at leisure—their contents are more thoroughly wan ned—aud they are often sent to absent friends to con vey to those abroad, some idea of the state of aflkirs at home. 1‘ortiana, May, 1S62. TESTIMONIALS. We snbjoln some extracts from letters recently pub lished in our columns. From Professors in Bowdoin College. Other papers, published out of the limits of the State, are useful; but they cannot be ex|»ected to take the place aud to fulfill all the objects of a paix-r pub lished among ourselves. The Mirror i* well known to our religious people, and lias been conducted by Mr. Lord, its present editor, with earnest Christian fidelity, with a high degree of abilitv. aud at the same time in such a manner a* to bring to light and to cher ish those local religious sympathies and interests, which cau uc rcaciteu ouiy oy a pajier puDiisneu iu tlM) Male. From Rev. I>r. ( bickering. AH necessity for two papers having ceased, we ought to have one taken in all our churches, a* good a* you and a hundred contributor* can make it.

[From Ilcv. Dr. Tappan.] In common with many others, 1 have earnestly de sired that we might have in Maine, undor the auspices of our denomination, but one religious new simper, aud I cannot hut hope, that the Mirror, which 1 have taken from the beginning, and on many accounts hare highly valued, may again secure general support, and prove In ih future course to lie a paper iu which we can all unite. In most of the views expressed in relation to this suhji-ct, by Professor Pond, in the Miuuok of this week, I frilly concur. Your own of fer “to send it without charge to any who way be de sirous of receiving it, till the meeting of the June (State] t onferei.ee in Portland,’’ i* fair aud liters!.— You will |>eniiit me however to inquire whether it might not lie well to send one number at least to every Congregational minister iu the Mate, who is not now a subscriber, without w aiting for an application, since, otherwise many may not kuow that such a proposal has been made. From Professors in ltangor Theological Seminary. From lUv. Dr. Pond. We obviously need one good religious paper in Maine; and one (if it can bo made satisfactory,) is enough. We need it, not only a* a vhehkle of intel ligence and thought, hut for the publication of no tice*, and the accomplishment of various local objects which cau he reached iu no other way. • • • I have been a subscriber for the Mirror and a constant reader of it for almost thirty years; — ami though I have s«**u things in it occasionally which I did not like, (as I do iu most other impers.) still all candid readers must acknowledge that the Mikuoii has been, from the first, the steadiast advo cate of liospel order and troth, aud an ini(>ortant auxiliary in the great work of enlightening and evan gelizing Maine. I will also *av that 1 think the Mm icon lias never been more ably aud faithfully couduct • -i than during Uw last few years. 1 he present editor devotes time, and thought, and labor to it, and suc ceeds in makiug it (wiiat lie has showu himself abundantly able to do) au interesting weekly visitant to onr families and homes. It should l>e further cousidered, that sonic of the exciting questions which once threatened to divide us, are changing their forms and losing their interest. They may give place to others, for aught we know, or may themselves come up again; but at present we svm to have got beyond them. The Miititou is an nntlinchiiig supporter of the government of the I'nited Mates in its contest with the slavery rebellion. It is skga aiucerc friend to the colored rare, and is readyflHbite in all well considered efforts for their lihcranmfami advancement—though I am tar from advisiug any one as to what, oi how many religious imperii lie shall take, yet I will venture to propose that we make trial of the Mirkoh. As we ought to have and must have out- religious pa|x-r in the State, let us take hold of this together; subscribe for it, write for it, and endeavor to make it such as our ^Lurches require. From Professor D. T. Smith. It would Ik* difficult for me to express too strongly how desirable on every account, it twems to me to be that the M iuk"U should be well sustained. Nowhere is tin* influence of a good religious newspaper more iiu|H>rtant than it is In Maine. In no State ts it more important that the Congregational churches should hit e an organ of'tin ii o*% n Nor 4o 1 mi how any reasonable man can ask for a better organ thau the Mirror. Some other papers indeed are enabled to supply a greater quantify of reading for the same price; hut other things being equal, a medium sized paper like a medium sized book, is better thau a larger one, and I can say in all sincerity, that I know of no paper, large or small, metropolitan or provincial, which, with so little intermingling of what is of a different character contains a larger amount or a greater variety of readable, reliable ami every way valuable matter, original and selected, than the Miu r.ou. Rarely do 1 place a number upon tile without a distinct feeling of regret in regard to more or lew of w hat it contains, that 1 cannot have it iu a volumo on my shelves where it will be constantly at hand. From Kov. Ura. Shepard and Harris. Mr. Lord, Hear Sir .-—Permit us to express our de sire that the Mibkou may receive the confidence and support of the members of our churches and Congre gations in Mai uo. It is conducted with paiustakiug amiability. It is a judicious and earnest supporter of the doctrines ami polity of our churches, or their missionary enterprises and their spiritual interests.— Its religious articles for family reading art; choice. Its summary of news, though necessarily condensed, is comprehensive and well-digested. Tlie occasions for difference respiting the application of Christian truth to civil and social affairs are passing a wav. aud ( hri-tiau people are rapidly approaching unanimity ; candor, forbearance and patience, with the grace and providence of liod, will euablc them to obtain it.— Under these circumstances we hope that those who take a religious pa|H*r will make a trial of the Miu itou; and we expect—we think with good reason— that they will bo satisfied with it. A Maine paper has obvious'advantages to Maine people, above one pub lished abroad, and presents obvious claims to their support. UEo. SIIKI’AKD, llungor, May 12,18*12. SAMUEL HARRIS. A. W.
