Capture of the Rebel Steamer Gordon. We have boen kindly furnished with a copy of a private lettar from Capt. J. B. Warken, Acting Muster Commanding of the U. S. Steamer Victoria, address to a distinguished gentleman of this city, given particulars of the capture of the Confederate steamer Gordon, in the perusal of which we dare say the readers of the Press will find as much satisfaction as we have. We publish below. Off Wilmington Bar, X. C., I U. S. S. “Victoria," May 28. ISO* f Mt Dear Sib : At 8 A. M. weighed anchor, to stand off to sea, and whilst in the act of do ing so, the fog lifted, (for it was very foggy) and we saw a steamer close in under the land, steering directly for Port Caswell, under a full full head of steam. I immediately started ahead for the purpose of cutting her off, hold ing her under my guns, for she was not more than a mile off. when first discovered. The U. S. Steamer “State of Georgia” saw her about the same time, and immediately fired at her, of which the chase took no notice. I then gave orders to Are on her, with her with our 30 pounder rifled gun forward. The shell passed over her amidships, but she still kept on her course. We then fired again at her. The shell this time, fell right under her bows. She still kept on without regarding our firing. Our next shot was a good line shot but passed over her. The State of Georgia all this time was sending shot and shell thick and fast around her. Our fourth shot struck the water and ri cocheted over her decks. She immediately hauled down her flag and /tore to (or stopped her engine.) At that moment I discovered a boat filled with men pulling from the steamer to the shore. I immediately gave orders to Are upon the boat. Our first shell passed over aud burst in the woods, but the fourth shot struck the boat, falling directly in the midst of the crew, who had just landed. The people on board the steamer told us afterwards that one man was killed and one wounded and that the rest fled into the woods in every direction. The boats were immediately sent and took possession of the steamer, which proved to be the confederate steamer “ Gordon,” which has so often and so successfully run the blockade; she has however recently changed her name to “ Nassau of N. P.” She was loaded with Enfield Itifles, ammunition, clothing, Ac., for the Confederate army. She had on board a large number of persons, although several had | escaped by the boat*. There still remained on board thirty, including two ladies. One of them was a young woman, the daughter of 1 John M. Maflltt, formerly a Lieutenant in the 1 United States Navy, recently of the Confede- j rate Mosquito fleet, and the other was a widow Knox, probably in pursuit of a husband. Mr. Law of Savannah, formerly of the firm of Claphorn & Co. of S., was also a passenger, i and claimed to be an Englishman. Also there ! was a Mr. Waters, a very important individual, who appeared to have the control of the cargo and the few remainiug paper* on board. The steamer was taken off to a safe anchor age and coaled from the “ State of Georga ” sufficient to take her to New York. Lieuten ant Ilaxton and an Assistant Engineer, with ten men from the “ State of Georgia,-’ also two Master Mates, an Assistant Engineer and nine inen from U. S. steamer “ Victor” was sent on board as a prize crew, and at 3 1-2 o'clock on the morning of the 21H.li, they weighed anchor and started for New York. The “Nassau” was commanded by Capt, Walker, the celebrated slaver, who has passed under the names of “Capt. Williams,-’ “Capt. Hope,” and several other aliases. No one was hurt on board the steamer, and the loss of life of those who attempted to escape in the boat, though much to be deplored,w'as only occasion ed by a conscientious discharge of what I felt to be my duty. It was only owing to a fortu nate raising of the fog just at the time it did, that we succeeded in capturing the steamer. Had the fog lasted twenty or thirty minutes longer, she would have passed under the guns of Port Caswell and have escaped us. As it was 1 had chased her into about 19 or 20 feet of water, and my l>oat drew 11 feet. This Capt. Walker is one of their chief villians,and recently arrived at Nassau Irom Liverpool, with a large cargo for the rebels, of which this is supposed to lie a part. He left his own steamer (the Fanny Lewis) at Nassau to take this one into Wilmington, and then return for the balance. It was a lucky “grab" when we took this Goliath of ltclicldom. If he docs not succeed in retaking the steamer, which I j have no doubt he will attempt to do, the reliels have lost one of their chief Detils, i. e. one of their chief Sea Detils. The former Captain who took her out, J. M. Maflit, liad’nt the pluck to take her hack, but sent his daughter to claim the courtesy of the Navy, if taken, and thereby save herself from Imprisonment, % and with her the widow Knox, who showed a deal of the white horse style of language and manners. She told us she was born a lady, and we told her it was all right. We sent them all North to spend the summer, that being our style of showing Naval courtesy. [From our Regular Correspondent.] letter from Kkowhegan. Daily Press—lion. Aimer Cohnrn—Sixteenth Regiment — Col. Wildes — Farmer's pr as pects—Carious Changes—Old residents, «fcc. SkoWHJCOAN, June 26, 1862. Messrs. EnrroRs:—The first number of the Daily Press arrived duly, and presents an at tractive appearance for the present, and a grat ifying promise for the future. Its style, tone and temper warrant the most flattering predic tions for tlie career which is liefore it Long may it wave 1 In an issue of yours the other day, I noticed an article referring to the liepublican nominee for Governor, Hon. Abner Cobum. What the writer says of Mr. Coburn, of his high charac ter and eminent fitness to discharge the duties of the office in which his friends desire to place him, is but the simple truth, and of this none can testify more readily than his townsmen.— If you want to know what a man is like, go and inquire how he stamls among the neigh bors with whom he lias passed his life. Tin fact that among this class the nomination of Mr. Coburn meets witli cordial approval, speaks volumes in his favor. They have tried him, for years, and they know that they can rely upon him. From his birth he has been a resident of this vicinity, and no public or pri vate act of his has ever called forth a censure from his townsmen. Few men can show, in all the relations of life, a record so unspotted and consistent. He is a high-minded, public spirited, judicious, humane and liberal man, and worthy the confidence and support of the party which he represents iu his nomination.— He is not a talking man, having always pre ferred trork to teords, and he is without pre tension or display; but sprung from the peo ple, lie is emphatically the people’s choice.— They have great confidence in his administra tive and'financial ability; and they feel the assurance that their interests, if intrusted to him, will be confided to faithful and judicial hands. A company for the 16th regiment, Col. A. W. Wildes, is in process of formation here. In this busy season, when most of-the young men are employed for the summer, recruiting is ne^-ssarily a slow process; but the ranks are filling w fiwt, perhaps, as could be expected. Col. \\ ildes is a < sident of this town, and has many friends among us. Skowhegan has con tributed her fu.l share of brave Isiys to fight the battles of the Union. With the gallant 7th and 3d 1 adore Richmond, with the ilth in Florida, with the 15th on the steaming shores of the Golf, and elsewhere, she is largely and nobly represented. Some have fallen. From time to time, grim war gives bark to some hushed household the pale shrouded form that went forth in the pride of manly strength. But they died nobly, in a noble cause. Their country will not “forget the faithful dead.” It is raining hard_ here today, and the farm ers “act as if they had received some very good news.” In fact, matters had began to look rather des|>erate w'ith them. So severe and long-continued had lieen the drought that serious fears were entertained for the result. In many instances there were extensive fields which seemed likely to prove a total loss. The grateful moisture comes almost too late materi ally to affect the hay-crop, which must be light, but other things are looking finely. A curious instance of the changes In names and boundaries which may be witnessed in a growing country like this, has just come to notice here. The pretty cottage on Klin street, long the residence of Samuel Philbrick, Esq., has been torn down recently to give place to a more modern edifice. ‘ In connection with the old house thus demolished. Mr. Philbrick states the remarkable fact that be has lived in two Slates, in two countiesrand in four towns, and ail the time under this identical roof. Such are the changes time brings. Mr. Philbrick is one of our oldest and most honored citizeidf, having been a resident here before the admis sion of Maine into the Union, and lias seen the progress of the place from its small and feeble beginning to the present time. Some few oth ers of the old and honored residents, the busi ness fathers of the community, yet remain in our midst. Conspicuous among these, I can not refrain from mentioning Elion II. Neil, Esq., who has been for many years an active i and prominent man among ns, during which time he has Justly acquired that reputation for ! thorough reliability, which is a business man’s ! best capital here, and the best legacy he can I may possibly find from time to time, some further items of interest. If so, 1 may jot them down. Epsilon. K. J. D. LARRABEE A ( «, Manufacturer*, Importer*, and Wholesale and Re tail Dealer* in Picture Frames, Engravings, ARTISTS’ MATERIALS, Ac.

The Portland 1 * ail V Press is intended to be sn enterprising, vigor*** sod live Daily Morning Paper, containing the UiXefit and fullest news by mail and telegraph. THE MAINS STATE PRESS Is a large, wcll-flllct tally edited, and neatly printed weekly paper led specially for jrnoral circulation throughout4ite State. Both of the above Mamed 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 it$ interests twine with, and are inseparable from, those of the State. Politically, the Press will give an earnest, cordial, and generous support to the administration of Abra ham Lixcols, who Jm^tle more than one year, has indellibly impressed hMnamelf 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 stjhmlly exhibited, not [ouly in the matchless npcratioMMef our army and navy, but in tbc unparalleled that, iu the midst of this gigantic rebellion,’ on Government securities are selling at a premium. It will zealously labor to ex hibit and defend souwHfpnblican principle*, and, inasmuch as political qganizatiou* have become a necessity iu carrying yeffect great principles of political economy, ami inasmuch as ,the Republican party which, in the brigf chapter of it* history already written, has successftilll refuted the allegation of its enemies that Its desigm and tendencies were sec tional, and triumphaq£jr .vindicated its claim to a just and libera) XatinMllity, has remained steadfast in its devotion to the C don while other organizations have so generally bcojfne Infected with a dMoya! spirit, and inasmuch 4l ii the only party which at present seems competeffMo conserve the great prin ciples underlying all llec Governments, the Press will cordially sustain tMe organization of that party not with a design to fetter a mere partizan spirit, but in the full conicinu*4b that it embodies the true principles upon wiiichipnr government rests, and af fords the only available means of accomplishing such results as a lofty patriotism imperatively demands. It will neither seek met endorse any compromises with men in rebellion kaiust the laws of the land, but will inculcate loyaljf to the great central idea of all true democracy—ttrit the majority must govern. Upon the exciting qifMtiou of Domestic Hi# very, it may be proper to say, fiat while the Pmxfcs dUBsanc tion no interference wm the constttntional m legal right, of loyal men. i*>'> ocHhar ^apologize tor an evil which cou.titutc* the foulcM blot a poo our national character. no| attempt to resist the tide of events that seems d'-stjied to sweep from existence an institution which ijffee greatest anomaly in a free government. The esrfpfcicipation of slavery in the federal Capital, the cooperation of the Federal with the loyal State governments, to secure gradual eman cipation, as proposed ly President Lincoln, and all other constitutional mfiteures looking to a peaceful removal of our greatest "moral, political and social evil," will find in theffcEss a generous and hearty support. While thus distinctly announcing the general course proposed for the Press, and intruding that, alike in war and in peace— in oar country's peril and in **s triumph, it shall speak with no uncertain voice, do not lose sight of the* fact that true incn ha** hon estly differed, and that, coming by different routes they now find themselvefc travelling parallel roads; and, instead of seeking Id widen the differences be tween those who are required by a common patriot ism to act in concert, the Press will labor hopefully to eucourage unity of purpose and harmony of act ion among all loyal men. Aside from its political department, the Press will be earnestly devoted to the advancement of the best interests of the 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 Kditors. not un known to the people of Maine, will give their undivi ded energies t« the work before them, and labor to make such a paper as the city of Portland, the State of 3Iaine, and the exigencies of the times demand one that shall be true to the popular instincts.

THE FORTY-FIRST VOLUME OK THIS PAPER Will Commence July 29. All perrons who now subscribe to the Mirror by P*.v*n* 92 shall hawe a receipt to the close of Volume XLI—ending July 29,1863—being almost a year and one quarter. We are happy to announce Rev. Messrs. Rond, Shepard, Harris and Smith, Professors in Bangor Theological Seminary, as stated contributors to the columns of this paper. This paper is devoted to the diffusion 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 the hour (Monday noon) of going to press, and is suffi ciently general to meet the wants of those who take no other patter. The fourth page is spprongated to the most inter esting Literary. Scientific, ISd Commercial miscella ny that can be gathered. It has a department expressly for Children. It is intended to tie 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 oldest, the lar gest, the netrest, even the paper in the world: or that the Church and State would fall without it. V\ e claim for the Mirror that it is a ('hristian paper. It aims to be a true reflector of Bible principle and practicof and in the correction of moral evils and the renovation of Society, to hold forth the true remedy. It can be said of our paper that while its correspond ence is not meagre, its epitome of news and compact items of interest is inferior to that of no other paper, and its abstract of valuable article# in American and Foreign guartcrlies has supplied a place not filled by auy other re ligious print. If any want a pajn-r that can safely be a companion on the .Sabbath, that gives an unprejudiced view of public affairs, that aids to be a transcript of the age without identifying itself with its error#, that ohroui cles to ininuteuem religious and revival news, that holds firmly the doctrine# and practice of a protea taut Christianity and can In* safely put into the hand# of the young, we ask them te take the Christian Mirror. This being pre-eminently a Family Journal is one of the best chauncls for advertisements relating to Books, Sale#, Legal Notices, and all article# of geueral con sumption. \\ eekly paper# generator, and especially religious ones, are less likely to be destroyed than those more secular—they are read tnortfln families than Dailies— they are taken home and preserved, to be examined at leisure—their contents an* more thoroughlv scan ned—and they are often sent to absent friends to con vey to those abroad, some idea of the state of affair# at home. I’ortlana, May, 1862. TESTIMONIALS. We subjoin some extracts from letter# recently pub lished in our columns. From Professor# in Bowdoin College. Other papers, published out of the limit# of the State, are useful; but they cannot be expcct«*d to take the place and to fulfill all the object# ol a |taper pub lished among ourselves. The Mirror is well known to our religious people, and has been conducted by ! Mr. Lord, its present editor, with earnest i hristian fidelity, with a high degree of ability, and at the same , time in such a manner as to bring to'light and to chcr 1 ish those local religious sympathies amfinterest*, which can be reached only by a paper published iu the State. From Rev. Dr. Chickering. All necessity for two papers having ceased, we ought to have one taken iu all our churches, a# giKtd as you and a hundn^i contributors.cau make it. The most patriotic and liberty-loving among us cannot complain of its tone in these stirring times; and 1 sometimes almost wish I were compelled to relv upon your weekly Mimmary instead of reading so many ex citing details in the daily papers. You tell us what we | really mid to know; and a great many things that \ we ought to do. From Rev. Dr. Carruther*. It contains a weekly summary of event* written in a lively style—criticisms, literary and moral, of great practical value—and such matter* of general and de nominational interest as serve to keep it* readers well ‘posted up.' If ministers and others, at different point* in our large State, would be a little more com municative of local fact*, they would greatlv increase its intrinsic worth, and proportionally eularge its cir culation. (From Rev. Dr. Tappan.] In common w ith many others, I have earnestly de sired that we might have in Maine, under the attspfeea of our denomination, tut one religions newspaper, and I canuot but hope, that the Mirror, which I have taken from the beginning, and on many accounts | have highly valued, may again secure general support, ; and prove In its future course to he a paper in which i we can all unite. In most of the views expressed in | relation to this subject, bv Professor Pond, in the I Mirror of this week, I Billy concur. Your own of fer “to send it without charge to any who inav be de sirous of receiving it, till the meeting of the June (State] Conference in Portland.” is fair and liberal.— You will permit me however to inquire whether it might not Im* well toseud one number at least to every Congregational minister in the State, who is not now u subscriber, w ithout w ailing for an application, dps*, otherwise many may not know' that such a proposal has beeu made.' From Professors in Bangor Theological Seminary. From Rav. Dr. Pond. We obviously need one good religious paper in > Maine; and one (if it cau be made satisfactory,) is enough. We need it, not only as a vhehidc of Intel ligence and thought, but lor the publication of no tic**, and the accomplishment of various local objects which can be reacln-d in ua other way. • • • 1 have been v subscriber’for the Mirror and a constant reader of it for almost thirty years;— aud though 1 have seen things iu it occasionally which 1 did not like, (as I do in most other paper*.) still all candid readers must acknowledge that the Mirror has lx*en, from the first, the steadfast advo cate of tiospel order and truth, and *au important auxiliary in the great work of eulightening aud evau geli/mg Maine. I will also say that I think the 31 ir | rou ha* never beeu more ably and faithfully conduct | «*d than during the last few years. The present editor devote* time, and thought, and labor to it. and suc ceed* iu making it (what he has shown hiuiseif abundantly able to do) au interesting weekly viaitaut I to our families and homes. - It should be further considered, that some of the | exciting quc*tiou* 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 wo see’m to have got be>oud them. The 3Iiukor is an unflinching supporter of the government of the l-mted Slate* in its contest w ith the slavery rebellion, it hAka sincere friend to the colored race, amt is read^B unite iu all well considered efforts for their liberation and advancement—though 1 am far from advising any one as to what, or how many religious papers he shall take, yet 1 will venture to propose that we make trial of the Mirror. As we ought to have and must haw one religious paper in the State, let us take hold of this together; subscribe for it, write for it, and endeavor to make it such a* our rhuiche* require. From Professor I>. T. Smith. It would be difficult for me to express too strongly how desirable on every account, it s«*ein* to me to Ixj that the MlRBQS ikoild be WuU l—tlhul Nowhere is the influence of a p«MMt religious newspaper more important than it is in Maiue. In no State is it more important that the Congregational churches should have an organ of their own. Nor do 1 see how any reasonable man cau ask for a better orgau than tin* MnutOl. Some other pajK-rs indt-ed an- enabled to supply a greater quantity of readiug for the same I'm' . wui I'uin i iniiutih* ■ iiiniiuiu ntini paper like iPtnedium sized book, is better than a larger one. aud 1 can say iu all sincerity, that 1 know of no pa|ier, large or small, metropolitan or provincial, which, with mi little intermingling of what is of a different character contains a larger amount or a greater variety of readable, reliable and every way valuable matter, original and selected, than the Mir non. Karely do 1 place a number upon tile without a distinct feeling of regret in regard to more or less of w hat it contains, that I cannot have it in a volume on my shelves where it will be constantly at baud. From Rev. Dr*. Shepard and Harris. Mr. Lord. Dear Sir:—Permit us to express our de sire that the Mirror may receive the confidence and support of the member* of ourchurclies and Congre gation* in Maim*. It is conducted with painstaking and ability. It is a judicious and earnest supporter of the doctrines and polity of our churches, of their missionary enterprise* and their spiritual interests.— Its religious articles for family reading are cltoice. Its summary of news, though necessarily condensed, is comprehensive and well-digested. The occasions for difference respecting the application of Christian truth to civil aud social affair* arc pacing a wav, aud Christian people are rapidly approaching unanimity; candor, forbearance and patience, with the grace and providence of God, w ill enable them to obtain it.— Under these circumstances we hope that those who take a religious pajM-r will make a trial of the Mir ror; and wo expect—we think with good reason— that they will be satisfied with it. A Maine paper has obvious advantage* to Maine people, above one pub lished abroad, aud presents onvious claims to their support. GEO. 8 HEP A RD, Hangor, May 12. 1*52. SAMUEL HARRIS. A. W.
