Reprieved, but only for a Day.
Reader, have you ever experienced the emo
tions of one, who, on retiring for the night,
makes his Will, kisses his wife and baby, bids
farewell to all sublunary things, wraps around
himself “the drapery of his couch,” and lies
down,—not “to pleasant dreams,” but—in ex
pectation of awakeuing in the morning, to find
himself a head shorter, and his body in the
hands of the undertaker,— but who actually
finds himself unharmed ?
Then you know precisely the feelings of
this unhappy intfivic*- I, when, yesterday morn
ing, an hour past day-break, instead of finding
himself “snuffed out,” he read a gracious re
prieve, though only for a brief twenty-four
hours. The giant who wields the glittering

death-warrant, whetting his knife, arranging
his apparatus, rolling up his sleeves, and mak
ing all needful arrangements to prevent defile
ment from the blood of his victim—after a sus
pense and a torture extended through two full
columns, couches a brief reprieve as follows :
“Want of room obliges us to postpone the remain
ing half of this article till to-morrow.
Did we ever before feel the full force of the
"The cat doth play,
And after slay!“
When we awoke in the grey of the morning,
haring had frightful visions of that fatal instru
ment with a French name, used in the early
dawn to shorten the French population, and
finding it already past six o’clock, we were at
a loss to know whether we were in the body or
otherwise: whether in the material, or the spir
it world. We looked in the glass, and lo! it was
our own face, with all its blemishes and home
ly features; and our head was in its customary
place. The bed revealed no stains of blood, as
though “murder most foul’’ had been commit
ted. Respiration was not difficult; but then,
didn’t we know the keenness of the blade that
was to stop the life-current, and how many
heads it had severed without leaving a crim
son stain upon its lustrous surface? Indeed
we did; and not till we had spit, coughed,
sneezed, and performed divers other similar
cachinnations could we feel fully assured that
the glittering steel had not separated the
“joints and marrow,” or that our head would
not roll from the shoulders which had long
upheld it? We had read in story and in fable,
of the headsman so expert that his work was
never appreciated by his victim, until, in at
tempting some ordinary movement of the head,
he would find it severed at the neck, and done
so scientifically as not to interrupt either the
circulation of the blood, or the operations of
the mind. Is it strange, then, that we doubt
ed our consciousness, or that we refused to be
satisfied in the absence of the most feeling
But we had been preserved; preserved, it is
true, only for sacrifice; but still preserved in
the best of spirits, equal to the best Catawba:
and we have improved the brief respite in mak
ing preparation for the fate that brooks no
longer delay. At six this morning the curtain
falls, and the half hour that the Press is read
before the Advertiser is “up and dressed,” is
all that enables us to tell the story of our de
ferred though certain doom.
We hope no friend of ours—if we leave a
friend behind,—will allow his “angry passions”
to rise against our executioner. As we said
yesterday, he acts only in fulfilment of a great
public duty. “The “chronic complaints” to
which he has feelingly alluded, allow him no
rest while that duty remains unperformed. We
deeply sympathize with him. His most “chron
ic complaint” is, doubtless, a disease of the.
heart! It drove him from the Argus in days
of yore, as we learn from his own pen; it drove
him to seek rest amid the vine-clad hills of the
Hoosier prairies; it drove him into the Cin
cinnati Enquirer; it drove him from the west
ern Porkopolis; it drove him to prefer Breck
inridge because of the excellence of his plat
form, and it has driven him to Portland. It is
compelling him to remove mountains, to build
railroads, and to give such matchless exhibi
uons 01 -journalism as ine worm nan nev
er seen. It imposes upon him mighty works
requiring a giant's energies. Under it« influ
ence he has slain his hecatombs of victims,
and done it with all the zeal, and fervor, and
sense of conscious duty that ever animated
the old crusaders in their efforts to rescue the
holy sepulchre from the hands of the turlmned
Mussulman. Profane annals furnish no exact
counterpart of his “chronic complaint.” The
only fitting parallel is found in sacred story .in
tlie case of the spirit that “walked through dry
places seeking rest and finding none.” How
terrible is his mission! How sad and hopeless
the fate of those who stand in the way of
his kindled wrath! With the breath of his lips
he slays his enemies! With the hash of a
goosequill he blots them out forever, and—
but stop! The cracked bell on the First Parish
announces the hour of six: that our time has
come! The door opens. The executioner en
ters,—in his hand a blade of burnished steel—
from his nostrils proceeding jets of tire and
vapor. That right hand is raised; it descends
with a crash; a caved head, a cloven trunk,
a struggle, a gasp, and all is over! Beautiful
world, adieu!
Did the Government Stop Recruiting?
At a war meeting in Newton, a few nights
ago, lion. Henry Wilson was present, and was
called upon to speak; and in the course of his
remarks lie took occasion to notice the very
common impression Hint Government, some
time since, ordered recruiting to be stopped.
Mr. Wilson said that the Government did no
such thing; that the recruiting had stopped of
itself; there was no recruiting going on; re
cruiting had ceased altogether. There were
seventy-five unorganized regiments. The
enormous expense of all these unorganized
regiments called upon the Government to put
a stop to it. The Government was paying at
the same rate it did when the army was lieing
recruited by tens of thousands. It was a mis
taken idea that recruiting was ordered to lie
He also referred to the common remark that
he, as chairman of the Military Committee,
had said in the Senate that Government had
160,000 more troops than were needed. Said
Mr. W.:
I declare on tny honor that I never dreamed
of such a thing; there is not only no truth in
it, but there is not a shadow of truth upon
which to lay the foundation of the assertion.
As Chairman of the Military Committee, an
order w as drawn under my supervision,calling
for half a inilliou of men. This was during
the recess of Congress. Congress assembled
in Deeemlier, ami from the best information
that Government could obtain, the amount
raised exceeded <580,(100, or 180,000 more than
was provided for.
The Military Committee, always found fault
wrtli on account of the enormous expenses of
tlie war. were called upon,over and over again,
to state the number of men in the service, and
after a careful and laborious calculation, it was
ascertained that instead of having 880.000 men,
there were but about 525,000 in the service of
the country.
On the floor of the Senate, in reply to an
inquiry from the chairman of the Finance
Committee, Mr. Grimes, of Iowa, I stated that
Government iiad but 520.000 men: that it
railed for 150,000 more than were enrolled;—
that if there had been 080,000 men that would
lie 180,000 more than allowed by law. I have
always maintained that Government wanted
more men. In a recent debate upon the array
bill I appealed to every Senator to say if ever
I, on the fioor of tile Senate, maintained that
we had more troops than were wanted, and
not a voice was raised—on the contrary a
unanimous verdict tiiut I hud not. So much,

sition which the New York Herald lias sought
to place me in, and which other papers have
Letter from Brunswick.
Bbcnswick, July 25th, 1862.
To the Editors of the Daily Press:—This
pleasant town has somehow won quite a repu
tation for dignified quiet, and conservative
slowness. People have got the notion that
Y'oung America does not flourish much here,
and even that genuine patriotism is somewhat
chilled and repressed by some untoward influ
ence. Bat I believe the overwhelming major
ity of the people of this town sympathize with
every good cause, and enter cordially iuto the
measures proposed by the government to de
lend our national existence, against the vio
lence of parricides, and the jealousy of foreign
powers. You will nowhere find more true,
earnest and public-spirited men and women
than in this same quiet village.
Some response, by no means insignificant,
has already been made here, to the call of
the country in this critical hour. There
has not, however, been a great rush of men to
the ranks. Perhaps people have been holding
back till they saw what the town would do in
the way of bounty. But there w ill la* no
more waiting now. A town-meeting was held
yesterday to consider the demands of the pres
ent exigency. The response was ready, hearty
and generous. It was voted with the greatest
unanimity, to pay $100, over and above all
other bounties, to each volunteer under the
late call, who has enlisted, or who shall enlist
w ithin the next ten days. A rallying commit
tee was also chosen to stir up tlie people, and
assist in raising recruits. That committee
consists of the following gentlemen:
Leonard Townsend, Win. (5. Barrows,
Francis Owen, J. L. Chamberlain,
Charles J. Gilman, Marshall Cram,
Benjamin Greene, E. I). Toothaker,
Samuel It. Jackson, J. I). Lincoln,

Lyman E. Smith. Samuel W. Frost,
Augustus P. Jordan, Edward S. Hacker,
Joseph C. Given, Albion P. Woodside,
George W. Minot.
The kindest feeling prevailed at tills meet
ing. and it cannot but have a quickening and
uniting influence upon all the citizens. The
recruiting officers are busy, and it needs now
only the fife and drum to bring out our quota
of fifty-two without delay. The college is
wide awake. Many students have already en
listed, and all are eager to; some of the Pro
' fessors are ready to set them an example.—
Bowdoin is not behind the times, you may be
I sec that another rallying meeting is called
this evening, at w hich Hon. Charles J. Gilman,
Prof. Chamberlain, and other gentlemen, are
expected to s|«-ak. I will endeavor to keep
you informed of everything of interest that
may occur in this place. *
Too Many Shoulder Straps.
The New York World thinks we are too
! much given to shoulder straps—that w e have
too many poor officers* and too few good sol
diers. He says:
Our army has much too large a proportion
of costly and worthless, because superfluous,
officers. While the rank and file are sadly
thinned, so that many noted regiments muster
barely three hundred men, there are always
officers enough to command eleven hundred.
It is now proposed to create, in addition to
I these veteran officers, a swarm of new ones
for the regiments forming in the several States,
! thus adding enormously to the cost of the mil
' itary service, while impairing its efficiency.
It is to be ho|>ed that this matter will be
brought to tiie attention of the President, orto
the new commander-in-chief, if we are to have
• one, so that the creation of useless officers will
be stopped forthwith. There are regiments
enough, and officers more than enough, al
i ready under pay, to make use of the new levy
| of 300,000 men. Let no more money be laid
I out in shoulder straps.
A eorresnondent now in the field, cotnnlabis
that inexperienced and green Ixtys are too of
ten sent out to officer veteran troops. An of
ficer dies, is discharged or resigns, and too oft
en his place is tilled, not by a soldier from the
ranks, who has been under fire, and proved his
courage, but by a beardless boy, whose father
happens to have some influence, and who
scarcely knows a carbine from a crowbar, and
whose muscles have no more toughness than an
icicle. Such things would do once. We were
obliged to put up with them; but no such ne
cessity now exists.
Mr. Editor:
The town of Porter voted unanimously to
day to pay a bounty of $100 to each volunteer
| required to fill tip its quota for the new rcgi
| ments. Our boys will be at their posts with

Death of lion. Reuel Williams—Recruiting
Promising—“Banner Town”—Personal—
Augusta, July 25.
lion. Revel Williams died at his resi
dence in this city at two o’clock this (Friday)*
morning. He was horn on the 2d day of June,
mi, and was therefore at his death entering
upon his eightieth year. His death, although
not wholly unexpected, was sudden, as he w as
about the streets a week since. He had been
for several months becoming more and more
feeble, until he has at last expired, full of years
and of honors.
He was, all his life, a man of the strietestbus
;ness habits, and had acquired a very large
property. To the ability and public spirit of
Reuel Williams the w hole State owes not a
little, while bis loss will be severely felt by
this city. His works of benevolence, both
public or private, remain to bear his memory.
He was a member of the Senate of the United
States, during the Madawaska war; and,
though unambitious for office, lie had held
many places of public trust. One of the last
public acts of bis life, was to visit Washington
as one of the Commissioners appointed by the
Governor, to lay before the national authorities
the necessity and feasibility of fortifying the
coast of Maine; and it was very largely by bis
efforts that the Government were led to appre
ciate 'the sure policy of protecting our coast
with forts and other defences; a work which is
already begun. Mr. Williams leavys one son,
the Hon. Joseph H. Williams, formerly Gov
ernor of Maine—and five daughters.
The news from all sections of the State is
very encouraging respecting recruiting. Many
of the towns have already raised their respec
tive quotas, and not a few have raised more.—
Lincoln, in Penobscot county, still maintains
its rank as the "Banner town;” with a quota
of only 18 assigned to her, she has raised over
80 men. All indications are that it will not lie
necessary to resort to draft to obtain the 7000
troops required from Maine.
Col. Burnham, of the tith regiment, was here
yesterday on his way for a short visit to his
family. He looks like a regular “war-dog,” as
lie is; and be has the command of a regiment
of “war-dogs.”

Vinton, followed by Hon. J. H. Drummond
and Hon. F. O. J. Smith of Portland. The
several speeches were eloquent, and just what
was needed to rouse American patriotism, aud
from the applause which followed the utterance
of every patriotic sentiment, I should judge
the people of Gray to lie aw ake to the impor
tant issues now before the country, and deter
mined to do their part in the salvation of the

At the close of the meeting, I understand,
several volunteers enrolled their names, and it
is thought that a few days only will fill up the
number required of this town. E»,»»

Fort (forge*.
A writer in the Advertiser, in an article op
posing the construction of Fort Gorges, says:
“Fort Gorges is a great humbug, and the
sooner the Government stops work upon it the
better for the country.” * "It seems strange
to me that such a spot was ever selected to
build a fort on. And the more the subject is
discussed, the more absurd it will appear to all
who have any knowledge of sue h matters.”
With a person who seems to have a better
knowledge of maritime defences tliau the offi
cers of the United States army, I do not pro
pose now to discuss this matter of the con
struction of Fort Gorges; but I desire to an
swer his cut and thrust article in a Yankee
manner, by asking him some questions, to wit:
Supposing your two Monitors are built and
placed in our harbor, as you projiose. and sup->
posing, also, your fort on Hangs Island is built
(both very proper as parts of a system of de
fence) what would the two or four guns of
your Monitor do or your fort on Hangs Island,
if our city was attacked, not by oue or two
ships, but by ten or more ?—could not a part
of the fleet dp as ours has lately done on the
Mississippi, run by your outer line of defence
and open upon our city from the upper harbor?
Or could they not come in through Hussey's
Sound, unharmed by a fort on Hangs Island
and, without Fort Gorges, proceed up to our
inner harbor.

R. GuiseY, ol the Massachusetts Ninth Regi
ment, recently under Col. Cass, who was wound
ed before Richmond and has since died. Col.
Guiney is a true-hearted Irishman, but devot
ed heart and soul to the cause of his adopted
country, under whose banner he has fought
and will continue to light until this infernal re
bellion is crushed out. Bro. Stetson closes
his noble tribute to this noble son of the Em
erald Isle, as follows:
We have said thus much of Col. Guiney, be
cause he is known to many of our citizens, es
pecially to such as attended Mr. Jones’s school
some twelve or fifteen years ago; because, al
so, he is deserving of honorable mention—be
cause his example should be known and imi
tated. At the age of tw enty-seven, and in the
face of the most adverse circumstances, save
that nature gave him talents, the spirit of in
dustry and ambition, Col. G. lias certainly set
an example worthy of imitation by our young
men, who would be men and patriots. When
Col. G. was a boy in this city, a certain lady
in whose family he performed labor at times
and who noted his studious habits, used to re
mark, by way of encouragement—“Well, Pat
rick, I ex|x*ct you will one day lie President.”
Taken with due allowance, that lady need not
blush at tier expectations, to the fulfillment of
which her kind words may have contributed
more than she is aware.
“ Bro. Tenney of the Brunswick Tele
graph says “it is true that we have a few who
talk Secession; we have also a few who talk
rampant Abolition,” and Tenney don’t seem
to make any ditlerence in their criminality.
Freedom and slavery seein to have equal merit
in his eyes; and to destroy the government is
no more heinous than to destroy a hellish in
stitution ! No wonder he winces when a word
is said about the "latent treason” in his town.
Bro. T. may save his lectures in our behalf, for
we are fully |>osted iu relations to Brunswick
sentiment. No truer men live than a large
majority of the people of Brunswick, but it is
equally true that a few self-inflated, self-suffi
cient men are found there who have male it
almost a life business to denounce the North
ern people when iu Southern ports, and who
have such an abhorence of abolition that they
don't act one whit better than the rankest se
cessionists. And itseemssometimesas though
this is the only class that never receive a hard
shot from our friend of the Telegraph. We
suppose his heart is in the right place, but his
prejudices sometimes lead captive his reason
ing faculties.
A Veteran Shipmaster.—A few days
since we had a pleasant call from Capt. Laza
rus Bates, of Yarmouth, now in his uiutieth
year, though hale and smart as most men of
seventy, ('apt. Bates showed us his first pro
tection, dated Aug. 23, 17D5, signed by Na
thaniel F. Fosdick. Collector of Portland. The
young sailor was then but 2:1 years of age, ami
was about to make his maiden voyage in the
brig Harmony, Capt. Tucker, from this port to
Charleston, S. C. At Charleston the brig took
a cargo for Cowes and a market, proceeded to
London; from London to St. I'bes, and thence
to Portland. One remarkable fact is this: the
* u» uauu UTUiiit’U IcIlIjKira
ry master of the brig. At St. Ubes the 2.1
mate died of black vomit, and the Captain was
taken down, expecting not to recover. The
1st mute w as very dissipated, and one day came
on board drunk, and attempted violence u|xm
the sick Captain, when young Hates took him
in charge, and tied him to the quarter rail—
Capt. Tucker called the crew below, request
ed them to obey the young sailor during the
rest of the voyage, placed the keys in his
hands to be delivered to his (the Cuptaiu's)
w ife, ami resigned himself to his late. Hilt
the trustworthy young man not only brought
the brig safely into port, but had the satisfac
tion of bringing his Captain w ith him, in an
improved condition of health. Aftewards he
was master of a vessel for more than forty
years, and now, in his advanced age, he looks
forw ard to a peaceful entry into one more port
—the haven of unending rest aud peace.

Resolutions were adopted yesterday at a
meeting of commissioners representing the N.

Committee and the Common Council, to the
effect that every person in the community of
doubtful ioyality should he regarded as dis
loyal and no otic should la* trusted who is uot
willing to sacrifice property, life and opinion
to the public good. That the time has come
when we must strike for the national life with
every weapon that God has given us; that de
lay strengthens the rebels and wcakcurus;
that it is better that every rebel should perish
than one more Union soldier should die, ami
therefore it is earnestly urged that it is best to
immediately issue the order which, while it
w ill take from the relicts their great source .if
strength, will diminish their army by calling
to the defence of their homes large numbers of
rebel officers aud men.
