Portt and Rmivo Academy.—We had
the pleasure of visiting the Riding Academy
on South street, yesterday, and were very
much pleased to witness the proficiency of the
pupils, some of whom rode very gracefully.—
This is an institution that deserves a liberal
patronage from the people of Portland. Aside
from being a pleasing and graceful aeeomplish
• inent, riding on horseback affords one of the
best possible exercises for young ladies, who
ought to be out of doors more than they are.
Parents can hardly do a l>etter thing for their
children than to send them to this riding
school. Mr. BdBimox, the proprietor, is
master of his business, having recently come
here from Massachusetts, where he has had
several years experience; his horses are spirit
ed, yet perfectly trained, kind and gpntle. and
his room large, airy and plea«ant. We hope
the patronage he may receive will be liberal
enough to induce his permanent stay In Port
land. We understand that persons who board
their saddle horses at this establishment have
the privilege of riding in the Park gratis.
“Ax’ wn.tr wn.i. I no with this?"—It
will perhaps require considerable time, ere the
great mass become thoroughly aware of the
scarcety of specie, and of the consequent use
of postage stamps as “legal tender.” We over
heard a conversation yeterday, between a gro
cer and a poor Irish woman, who having re
ceived thirty-five cents change in stamp cur
rency, thus addre&sed the honest vender of
salt and sugar:
“An’ what Is this ?”
“Tour change madam,” blandly returned
the grocer ?
“Sure an’ I can't write a letther. The divil
fly away wid ye, but I don’t want the dirty
schrapps of paper. It’s my own good money
I would have.”
In vain did the store-kec|>er endeavor to
post her in regard to the scarcity of change
and the value of the stamps, but Biddy was
deaf to all arguments, and giving a stump of
her brognns, demanded a “quarther dollar and
tin cint pace,” before she would “lave the
Charity and Hcmax Kindness Exem
plified.—Passing through Fore Street on
Sunday morning last, we beheld a little Irish
girl crying over the fragments of a pitcher
which sheftad dropped on the sidewalk, and
while the tears streamed down her unwashed
and uncared for face, her little bare feet fairly
danced through fear, as she probably thought
of the beating in store for her at home. Hut
her tears were soon chased away by smiles, as
an honest, weather-beaten tar crossing the
street, thus addressed her: “I say, young one,
what’s in the wind nowV “Oh! oh!” trem
bled out the child, “mammy’s pitcher,” and
pointing to the pieces, she looked piteously in
to the sailor’s face. Instantly the weather
browned hand of the mariner sought his pock
et, and drawing from thence a half dollar
piece, gave it to the little girl, saying, as the
sunshine of his soul illumined his face, “There,
give that to your mother—way you go, way
you go.” “A good action brings its own re
“Kind Natcre Wakes Her Genial
Power."—If Pope, (not the general, but the
poet) the author of the foregoing caption,
could have been in our sanctum yesterday
morning, his conceptions of the beautiful
would have been still more heightened thau
w hen he wrote the verse alluded to. It does
seem that kind friends in their goodness of
heart will still continue to place us under
obligations. We were the recipients, yester
day. of a curious Indian box filled with lus
cious fruits and fragrant flowers, but just torn
from the lap of nature, and smiling U]>on us as
sweetly as if still reclining upon their parent
bed. Of course we know who was the donor,
but as excessive modesty is his grand charac
teristic, we forbear to bring his name before the
public. Much obliged, “Charlie.”
Militia Election’.—With much pleasure
we announce the election of Charles A. Gilson,
Esq., of this city, to the office or Captain of
Company 12, ward 4, vice Solomon Myric, Esq,
resigned. Also, Beqj. F. Lunt, Esq., to the
offiice of 1st Lieut, vice Charles II. Adams,
Esq., resigned. We are pleased at the choice
made by the company in the selection of their
captain and executive officer, and feel asssured
from our personal acquaintance with these gen
tlemen, of their ability to render their corps
as efficient as any in the city.

C. 8. Sanitary Commission.
Rev. Mr. Hadley who has been employed by
the United States Sanitary Commission the
past year at Washington, and for the past four
weeks has been in our State making collections
for the above named association, has met with
great success, many towns having responded
nobly. The wants of the association at the
present time are great, and the good people of
Maine, one and all, owe it to our noble, brave
men who have gone forth to fight our battles,
that this association shall lie sustained.
Maine at the present time, has a large l»ody of
her troops now in the army of the Potomac
that are receiving the benefit of this association.
Mr. Hadley will visit some of the Eastern
Towns in a few days, taking the shore route,
in company with General Howard, he having
volunteered his service whenever he can make
it practicable. Ho proposes to remain in the
State until Sept. 1st, unless called away to
some other port of service.

Tlte London Herald treats the affair before
Richmond as a decisive defeat of Gen McClel
lan, and says the Confederate Capital is safe.
It does not, however, believe the campaign is
ended, hut supposes it will go ou until Europe
stays the uplifted sword and in the name of
humanity enforces peace.
The Morning Post argues that practically
the scheme of capturing Richmond hits termi
nated. and points out the dangerous position
of Gen. McClellan's army.
The Globe hopes the gigantic difficulties
which are lwing developed may have an effect
on both sides, and that more reasonable views
may supercede the plan of military conquest.
The Times states that the fighting before
Richmond must have lieen of the highest im
portance. and that McClellan's situation cannot
lie but precarious. These three days of June
mean that the confederate army is strong
enough to hold its position in Virginia for a
time that may be indefinitely prolonged. The
Federal* will have again to begin the seige of
Richmond with a much worse chance than at

Particulars of the Naval Fight at the mouth
of the Yazoo River.
Cairo. July 21.
Tin' dispatch boat which arrived at Mem
phis Saturday, brings the following: The re
ported escape of the rebel gunboat Arkansas
is correct. The affair took place on the morn
ing of the 15th. lu consequence of reports
brought by refugees tbat the Arkansas was
about to attempt to run the federal fleet, the
gunboats < 'arondelet, Tyler and ram Lancas
ter, started up the Yazoo river to reconnoitre.
When eight miles from the mouth they came
suddenly upon the Arkansas lying under the
bunk, and as our boats rounded the bend she
opened upon them with 88-pounders. Our
boat* returned the fire and for a short time a
a fierce engagement ensued. Finding that the
channel of the river prevented successful ma
neuvering, they gradually dropped dnuwurd
toward the mouth, the Arkansas following.
Just as the latter was passing over the liar the
Carondelet closed with her, intending to
board. She succeeded in throwing a grapple
aboard and getting out a plank, when the
Arkansas opened her steam pipes, throwing
hot water across the plank. The Carondelet
replied in the same manner, anil w hile thus
engaged both vessels grounded, the shock se
parating them. The Arkansas succeeded in
getting off and the Carondelet remained fast
for nearly an hour. The Arkansas immediate
ly passed down the river, the Tyler preceding
her and maintaining a running fight with her
greatly superior adversary. None of our gun
boats w ith the fleet had steam up, and the en
tire fleet was so scattered that few could tire
at the runaway. A solid shot from one of
Farragut's boats struck the Arkansas on her
larboard bow, passing through and under her
plating, ripping it off for a considerable dis
tance. The injury received by our fleet is
tight. The Ilenton had one man killed, and
the Tyler, which was engaged nearly an hour
and a half, had seven killed and nine wounded.
The ram Lancaster received a shot under her
bows, causing hii escape oi hot water, scald
ing six men, three of them fatally. The en
tire federal loss is 12 killed and about the same
number wounded. The rebel loss is not ascer
tained, but is believed to be considerable, as
the hot water streams of the Carondelet at the
time they attempted to board the rebel, were
thrown directly into her. •

Meeting at Ken- City Hall.
Last evening, the citizens ol Portland met
at the New City Hall according to previous :
notice—John A. Poor, Esq., in the chair, M.
G. Dow of Westbrook, Secretary.
Mr. Poor, on taking the chair, announced
the object of the meeting, and after a few stir
ring and patriotic remarks introduced to the
audience, Hon. Beiy. Kingsbury, Jr., of this
Mr. Kingsbury addressed the meeting in an
earnest, eloquent and patriotic manner. He
said that Jackson, years ago, answered the
question, “Shall the Union be preserved,” when
he uttered that glorious sentiment, “The Union
it must and shall be preserved.” We can all
stand upon the platform of the Union. (The
lateness of t he hour and press of telegraphic
matter compels us to oinit a full report of the
speeches. We may publish them to-morrow.)
Charles 1*. Kimball, Esq., was called upon
and made some patriotic remarks. He said he
was not a man of wealth or of much influence,
hut he was ready to enlist or procure a substi
tute. (Applause) He paid a high compli
ment to (Jen. McClellan.
Moses GjDow then addressed then meeting.
He said he heard Secretary Cameron say last
year that Maine had responded to the call of
the country better than auy other state in the
union. She had sent the finest and noblest
men to the w ar. He spoke of the bravery of
Maine troops in the field.
An old veteran of the war of 1812. whose
name we did not learn, then addressed the
meeting in a very happy manner, and was fre
quently interrupted by applause. He said he
stood a draft in 181J, drew a blank, hut would
enlist, did enlist and went to Canada. He
spoke of the liberality of the City Govern
ment, and said they hail dime nobly, (enthusi
astic cheering and the hand struck up Yankee
-iiicr which a scries 01 resolutions were in
troduced liy the Chairman, which were read
by the Secretary.
[We omit the resolutions, owing to the late
ness of the hour and want of space. They
were expressive of the necessity of a still
greater increase of bounty, and of censure of
the city government.]
lion. F. O. J. Smith of Westbrook, was then
introduced, who expressed himself strongly in
favor of still more lilieral action on tile part of
the city government. He spoke at lengtli of
the magnitude of the rebellion, and expressed
much regret that the men of wealth of the
city of Portland were not up to the crisis ujion
them. His remarks were lengthy, and devot
ed principally to denunciations of the city
government, and animadversions of the weal
thy men of Portland. He thought the city
ought to give a bounty of seventy-flve dollars.
Hon. John 15. Brown proposed to pay one
half of the amount necessary to be raised to
increase the bounty from forty-five to seventy
five dollars, if Mr. Smith would pay the other
half, w hich that gentleman declined to do.
Remarks were made by several other gen
tlemen, after which the resolutions were pass
ed and the meeting adjourned.
The Portland Band were in attendance, and,
as usual, acquitted themselves admirably. It
is one of the best bands in the Suite.
Personal.—Hon. F. A. Pike of Calais,
passed through this city yesterday on his way
home from Washington.
A REREL TRICK.—A correspondent of the
Philadelphia Knquirer.wrlting from McClellan’s
army gives the following:
Major Clendenin, with a command from the
8th Illinois Cavalry, were on a reconnolsance
a day or two since. He made a disposition of
his men all along the road, and soon came in
sight of the enemy. A flag of truce was soon
discovered coming from the side of the enemy.
After their introduction to the Major, it soon
became apparent that their visit was a mere
blind. About this time a contraband came in,
and stated that the Union forces were in rang*'
of three Held pieces that the reliels had Just
placed in position under cover of this Hag of
truce, and as soon as the (lag of truce party
left, and were out of danger, they intended til
Open on our gallant fellows, the Major at
once made an examination, and found this
story to be true. He at once informed his
treacherous enemy at the sound oftliefirst gun
he would cut their throats. He at once with
drew his forces out of range, the enemy not
daring to tire on account of their friends.
The Adjournment of Congress.
The llrsj session of the thirty-seventh Con
gress closed yesterday afternoon. It is not
exaggeration to say that no more important
session has been held since the adoption of the
constitution. Left by the treason of one third
of the States of the Union in the political con
trol of republicans, or of men sympathizing
with the predominant sentiment of the free
Stales, they have had to bear the responsibility
of its legislation, and ill a great degree also of
events in the management of the war, which
were not clearly within their control. But in
dependent of the crude and unjust criticism
of the hour, which often measures questions
not by their merits, but by their supposed ex
pediency, the present Congress will lie histori
cally as far above all former Congresses as the
events with which it has had to deal were the
more grand and inqiortant. When the politi
cal machinery, by which the policy of the na
tion has been shaped and formed, perishes, and
men can judge its worth without prejudice and
without fear .the distinguishing act of the pres
ent Congress will shine forth with clear lustre
—men will will date progress from them, as
the ancients reckoned from the birth of their
heroes or the reigns of their consuls.
It is needless to specify particularjacts of leg
islation which entitle it to the gratitude of the
layal people of the country, since its whole
spirit lias (lowed in the channel of the best pa
triotism—justice. The homestead bill, the
Pacific railroad bill, the prompt and vigorous
measures which the exigencies of the war have
from time to time compelled it to adopt, the
large and difficult questions of finance which
it lias met and decided, are greatly to its cred
it. Not less so is the courage with which it
has met and solved the questions on which the
political controversies of the last forty years
have turned, in which this extaordinary war
had it* origin, and in the established and per
manent settlement of which alone can there be
peace hereafter. Freedom the law of the cap
ital, freedom the law of territories, freedom the
law wherever the federal jurisdiction extends,
here and hereafter—if these glorious acts are
in any degree owing to the rebellion, they are
no small atonement for the grief it has brought
upon tlie nation. Whatever may happen here
after these lights and guides will stand. Oth
ers may improve upon them : but no majorities
will ever have the courage to reverse them.—

Union Men hung in Texas.—The Charles

An order has been extended for every fami

THIS wnnderfuHuvcntion has already become an

ordinary New England family, ii will pay for itself in
six months, bv the saving of the wear and tear of
clothes in washing. It wifi wriug anything, from a
lace collar to the largest bed quilt. A girl of twelve
years old can use it without difficuljv and the tedious
and severe labor of “wringing” out the clothes, which
ha> always been the dread of women, and the great
fatigue of “washing day" becomes the easy work of a
few moments. Buttons are never nulled off. ami the
clothes are never torn, however old ami delicate they
may be.

This machine adjusts itself as much as any other

heavy clothes. Don't be deceived by the cry of “self

adjuster will wring small articles well and admit the
passage of large garments. It requires more than

clothes, from a napkin to a blanket or bed-spread,
much dryer thau by hand, and with less injury to the
fabric, 1. II. Silsby, Froprietor.
The Universal Clothe* Wringer has been in use in
my family for two months. It certainly saves much
hard work, It save* Clothe* also, for garments that
are getting old and worn are never cracked or torn
by it, as they are sure to be when w rung by hand. I
therefore cheerfully recommend it as a valuable fami
ly assistant.
Orange, N. J., Feb., 1862. Lucy Stork.
I am most happy to speak in the very highest terms
of the Universal Clothes Wringer, The hardest part
of “washing day” work is. in my opinion, the wring
ing; and the inventor of this machine mav have the
satisfaction of feeding that he has changed*one of the
most toilsome part of woman's work into a very at
tractive amusement. The laundress looks upon it as
a great blessing. 1 could hardly express m\ appro
bation of them more highly than by ordering one. in
these hard times, for my daughter. * 1 look upon it a*
among the most useful article* in her bouse.
