Twenty-one Yeakh Old.—A man's twen
ty-first birthday comes but once in his life. It
olden times the fledgling would patiently awail
the arrival of that day, ere it would try the
strength of its pinions. Even now. a moiety
of the solx-r, staid few abide its coming, but as
a general thing Young America will risk its
feathers at eighteen, using up the quills at
twenty. Ilere, however, is the exception.
Last evening it was our good fortune to be one
of a chosen few to celebrate the freedom day
of a gentleman, well known to the commercial
world, and who, surrounded by a chosen baud
of “thirty year ciders" seemed but the boy of
sixteen among them. Around him were gath
ered the sage and the wise, men from the cold,
cold world, and men also, who had never been
out of Portland. The youth, now a man, in
the sincerity of his heart, shed tears of anguish
as he reflected upon the past twenty-one years
of his life, and wondered how he had worried
through them. Life taken in the retrospect
shows hut a sad picture of short comings; and
thus it was the lad iu reviewing, found cause
for his tears.
Suddenly, in the midst of a glowing recital
of his past life, the “Press” stepped in, and
while the dew-drops of emotion stood upon
the brows of his auditors, the youth exclaim
ed “ hand that man a chair.” The chair being
taken, we were at liberty to observe the effect
of his speech upon his hearers. One gentle
man with his head in a recumbent position en
deavored to supply music for the occasion,
though strangely out of place as regarded
time, but of singular service in keeping the
rest awake. Others, witii listless looks regard
ed the speaker witii that “ Uc'U-get-througli
by-and-bye ” sort of expression, such as dea
cons are wont to wear near the close of a long
evening service. Still the s|ieaker continued,
until, wound up to the highest tension of ora
tory, bad but just entered upon these lines of
a well known poet :—
Seas roll to waft me, sans to light me rise—
My footstool earth—mv canopy the
deuce,” exclaimed he, upon viewing the apa
thetic crowd. “Boys, let’s have supper.”—
Instantly, as If by magic, a new life infused it
self amongst the “sage and the wise,” and
soon amidst the clattering of knives and forks,
there came a “feast of reason and flow of soul.”
It was one of those occasions in life, which,
like the refreshing oasis of the desert, cheers
the weary traveler, giving to future years a joy
at its simple remembrance.
Bbltal.—Our blood boiled, yesterday, with
indignation, as we passed along the street, to
see a burly driver of a large omnibus, creep
slily over the top of his carriage, to inflict se
vere blows with his long whip over the naked
heads and ears of two or three little wee boys
—not over six years old—who were hanging
oil to the rear steps of the carriage. The lit
tie fellows were trying to steal a ride, it is true,
but a kind word would have driven them off
as effectually as blows. Instead of this, the
heavy whip came down upon their tender flesh,
and they started off, stinging with needless
pain. A merciful man is merciful to his Is-ast
—much more so to a little defenceless child.
Personal.— Yesterday afternoon, Hon.
James Mann, recently appointed Paymaster
in the army, with the rank of Major, took the
three o’clock train for Washington, to report
for duty. Before leaving it was our privilege
to set down with him and about a dozen friends,
at the Preble House, to a social dinner, and to
*|>end in social friendship a half hour with Mr.
Maun before his departure. The occasion was
a pleasant one, and called forth sentiments and
remarks indicative of the high estimation in
which the new Paymaster is held by his home
friends. Mr. Mann's post office address for
the present will be at Washington. We wish
him all sorts of prosperity, and feel to con
gratulate the army that they have at least one
Manly Paymaster.
Mustering In.—About one hundred and
sixty men were mustered into the U. S. service
at Camp King, during yesterday, under the su
pervision of Dr. Tewksbury. The doctor pro
nounces them to be as tine a body of young
men, as it is well possible to get together, both
as regards their physical and moral abilities.—
It is emphatically a young men’s regiment,
and will, without doubt, win for itself an envi
able renown. A dozen or more recruits "have
been rejected, some for physical disabilities,
and others ou account of bad character. By
Wednesday next, it is estimated that upwards
of three hundred sound and able-bodied men
will have been received into the service.
People of Portland! You have not yet fur
nished one-half of the quota required of you.
O, boasted patriotism! O, vaunted devotion!
As it should nr..—The enterprising cashier
of the International Bank of this city, with
due regard to the accommodation of his cus
tomers, as well as an eye to future prosperity,
exchanged a few days since some five hun
dred dollars In gold for the same amount of
silver change, involving a sacrifice of at least
seventy-live dollars to enable him to pay out
something more convenient than postage
stamps in his daily business. Let others go
and do likewise or not complain, if a discrimi
nating public bestow their patronage where it
is best appreciated.
Robinson of the Dirigo House, Milk
street, having slaughtered a turtle, weighing
three hundred and seventy-five pounds, did, in
the bouuty and goodness of his heart invite
the press to participate in the demolition there
of. Finding so desirable a case to dissect, we
of course hap|>ened in, and in justice to friend
Robinson would say that a more palatable
dish never graced the board of an alderman.

The Richmond Enquirer of the 23d, says:
“Tlie basis of the exchange of prisoners lias
been the cartel of 1812. This cartel marks an
important era in the war. It is the acknowl
edgement of our quasi nationality. We are by

Tlie publication of tlie heavy list of rebel
losses in the late battles is continued in the

in no engagement but that of the 30th, carried
into action 225 men and lost 111.
Counterfeit notes are largely circulated in

The Enquirer claims that one more confed
erate victory will end the war. and that com
missioners for a truce and armistice will meet
those necessary preludes to a peace.
Rowdyism and disorder appear to have tlie
upper hand in Richmond.
The Enquirer complains of bogus military
guards who shoot down men wantonly, and do
a great deal of mischief in the way of robbery
and bruising. It also speaks of straggling des
jieradoes, runaways, from camp, whose occu
pation is stealing, bruising, rowdyism.
The Enquirer has the following:
Chatanooga, July 4.—The enemy is concen
trating a large force at Tullahumt,40 miles the
other side of Stevenson. Buell's army is in a
tight place.
Tlie Enquirer lias a list of the hospitals in
Richmond, including 15 army hospitals, tl pri
vate hospitals, and some 30 hospitals just open
ed. Hospital tents, it is stated, are being
erected in Howard's Grove and Mavos and

Manchester have been opened for hospitals.
The inflated condition of the rebel paper
currency caused stocks to go up in proportion.
Gen. Johnston’s official report of the Seven
Pines battle is printed under date of June 24.
He charges upon Gen. Huger the fact that the
confederate plan to destroy Keyes’ entire corps
was not realized, in consequence of his
(Huger’s) delay in getting into position and
being ready for action. “We took," he says,
10 pieces artillery, 11000 muskets, 1 garrison
flag and 4 regimental flags, besides a large
quantity of tents and camp equipage.”
Gen. Lougstreet reports the loss in his com
mand at about 4000, and Gen. Gustavus Smith
reports his at 1283, making a total loss of 4283.
Gen. Johnson states that the federal loss ex
ceeds that of tile rebels by 10,000 men.
The Enquirer says Gen. Stuart’s cavalry had
overtaken a portion of the Yankee force en
gaged in burning the bridge at Heaver Darn,
and captured 1 Lieut, and ti pri\ ate*. The
prisoners admit that they were engaged in the

Little Washington, I
Rappahannock County, July 23. (
The re]«irt recently telegraphed from War
renton that Jackson ■ as at or near Gordons
ville, is continued from other sources, which
state that he is at Louisa Court House with
24.000 men, and Ewell, with a corps of Jack
son's command, is at Gordonsviile, making a
total of 30,000 men. His present intention is
said to be to assume the offensive, auil break
our lines, anil if successful, to demonstrate up
on Washington, for the purpose of drawing off
our forces from Richmond.
As many misstatements have been publish
ed in regard to the expedition commanded by
Gen. Hatch, it may not bo inappropriate to
make the following statement, as given by a
returned officer: After marching to Culpepper
Gen. Hatch pushed his whole force to the
Rapidan, where, in consequence of the des
st ruction of the bridges, (n<l the high state of
the water, he was compelled to leave his artil
lery and infantry. With his cavalry he pushed
on to Orange Court House, where he learned
the enemy were in large force at Gordonsviile.
He sent a company of the Va. cavalry towards
Gordonsviile, who approached within 8 miles
of the latter place, and confirmed the report of
the enemy’s presence and strength. On Fri
day, the 18th, two brigades, supposed to be
commanded by Gen. Ewell, made their appear
ance at Orange, and on Saturday, after severe
skirmishing. Gen. Hatch fell back at Culpep
per. On Sunday 28 men of Co. A., X. Y. cav
alry, were captured by the enemy, owing, it is
said, to the incredulity of the commanding
officer, who did not believe a statement that
the enemy were advancing in force upon his
outpost station. Two or three men, whose
horses were saddled, made their escape. Af
ter returning to Culpepper, Gen. Hatch made
another incursion to Madison, and thence
northward toSperryville,ascertaining that the
enemy were not in force in that direcrion.
That Jackson is in great force at Ixiuisa and
Gordonsviile, is beyond doubt, and that he in
tends to attack at a very early day, is fully be
lieved. Gen. Hope's forces here have no ob
jection, but rather desire that he will make the

The Commissioner of Internal Revenue,

the bounty at the time of the recruits passing
me meuicai examination. Among other in
teresting matters, Secretary Stanton stated i
that a general exchange of prisoners had been
decided upon and that Col. Corcoran would be
in New York in ten days. This visit of the I

much good to the volunteers from New York.

though perfectly natural mode of healing
which he pursues. The recent proprietor of
this paper, Mr. Noyes, who has suffered much

the Doctor, as also have others whose testimo

this new magnetic method of healing which
commends itself. If it do not effect a cure, it
can do no harm, as it entirely dispenses with
medicines. Of course this novel curative pro
cess will encounter unbelief, and the old stale

The Metropolitan Universal Clotlu*s Wringer has
been in constant use in the Marlboro Hotel for the
last ten months, and gives perfect satisfaction. 1 have
no hesitation in recommending it to geueral use in
private families, and as capable of doing a large
amount of work in hotels. Geo. Allen.
WiNTunop House. Boston, March 27, 1862.
The Metro|H)litan t Universal Clothes Wringer has
been in use in the Winthrop House some four months.
It has proved a great saving of labor, and wrings the
clothes, from a napkin to a blanket or bed-spread,
much dryer than by hand, and with less injury to the
fabric, I. H. Silsby, Froptietor.
The Universal Clothe* Wringer has been in use in
my family tor two months. It certainly saves much
hard wont. It save* Clothes also, for garments that
are getting old and worn are never cracked or torn
by it, as they are sure to be when wrung by hand. I ,
therefore cheerfully recoiniueud it as a valuable fami
ly assistant.
Orange, X. J., Feb., 1862. Lucy Stone.
I am nn»*t happy to speak in therm highest terra*
of the Universal Clothes Wringer. The hardest part
of "washing day” work is. in my oniuion, the wring
ing; and the inventor of this machine may have the
satisfaction of filling that he ha* changedOue of the
most toilsome part of woman's work into a very at
tractive amusement. The laundress looks upon it as
a great blessing. I could hardly express my appro
bation of them more highly than by ordering oue, in
these hard times, for my danghter. ’ 1 look upon it a* ;
among the most useful article* in her house.
