Tile region says “Dr. Ludwig offered an order grautiug a bounty of $100 to such jiersous as may enlist.” Dr. L. informs us that the order lie introduced provided for a bounty of $100 to persons enlisting in the new regiment*, and $125 for recruits for regiments already in the service. Gen. Shepley.—We understand that Gen. Shcpley telegraphed to Alderman Putnam, asking that his friends should forego all display on the occasion of his arrival home. Ilis re quest was complied with so far as the city government was concerned, hut several hun dred peogile gathered at the depot and mani fested their joy by three hearty cheers as lie was stepgiing into his carriage. The General appears in good health anil spirits, and will re main at home until Saturday if possible. It is hoped that he will lie able to address his fellow citixcus before he returns to his giost of duty. sy-in these days of chicory, peas, dande lions, and other base imitations, a cup of pure coffee Is a rare luxury, the very existence of which is doubted by some. But it does exist, nevertheless; and if those who doubt will call at Smith’s 14 and ltt, Exchange street, they will doubt no longer. Not only is his coffee delirious, but his tallies are bountifully supgiiied with the beat the market affords. See adver tisement. Counterfeit Postage Stamps.—A coun terfeit ol the twenty-four oeut postage stamp made its appearance in this city yesterday.— I alike the genuine, it has no figures in the comer, and the words “U.S. Postage, Twenty four Cents,” instead of being part above and part below the head, form a circle about it— The face is broader than in the genuine. The counterfeit may be easily detected. Recovering.—Our highly esteemed follow citizen, Alderman Thomas it Jones, of Ward 6, is, we are happy to learn, rapidly recovering from his late severe illness. Rev. D. M.

Hamlin, Esq., of Washington, President of the Freedman's Relief Association of that city, will address our citizens this evening, at the City Hall, on the wants of these fugitives from iq/tuftce, at Washington. These contra bands flee from Virginia, principally, in many instances their rebel masters having led them on their estates without any means of subsist ence ; they are of both sexes, and of all ages; hungry, ragged, and leg-weary; and we pity the person who can turn a deaf ear from these living appeals of “man’s inhumanity to man.” Mr. Hamlin asks no pecuniary aid now, but only desires that our citizens, like those of many other places, may organize a special com mittee on this subject, with a view to provide them with clothing, books, &r., to enable them to learn to read.

As this town has already furnished more than twenty vol unteers, and has never yet had a commisioned officer, and as our Captain has volunteered, we all think he ought to have a commission, lie is a stirring, active, wide-awake man, who, with a little experience, would make a good of ficer.

Boothbay.—At a town meeting held in Boothbay Saturday. P. M., to see what should be done to encourage volunteers, a motion was made by the man that pays the largest tax in town to give them $100, which was carried by a unanimous vote, and it was thought that in less than one week the quota wmdd lie made up, although this town lias already furnished one hundred and thirty for the army and navy, and only about one hundred men are now at home liable to do military duty. _ S.
