MATTERS ABOUT TOWN.
Cumberland Drill Coups.—The. ail
Journed meeting of the commissioned officer
of the several companies of the enrolled mili
tia of tliis city ami vicinity, was held at tin
old City Ilail last evening. The committee
appointed to draft By-Laws for the govern
ment of the corps, reported a list which «■
adopted, and a committee was apgmititcd U
make nominations for the several officers. Thi
Cumberland Drill Corps was the name select
ed for the club.
Correction.—We are informed that there
was an error in our report of the city proceed
ings yesterday. 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. Graham preaches this
(Wednesday) evening, at Carloton llall, at a
quarter to eight o’clock.
Ity-Persons desiringto purchase furniture,
will find what they want at Parker’s, 146. Ex
change St, whose advertisement appears in
anotly.-r column.
Trial of Steam Fire Engines. —The
Portland Company have just completed for the
city of Portland, two Steam Fire Engines, one
named the “Falmouth” and the other the
“Union.” These engines, in connection with
the Machigonne, will be tested this afternoon,
at two o’clock, on Back Cove, at the foot of
Wilmot street. Each engine will play through
a thousand feet of hose for three hours, and
they will be thoroughly tested to their utmost
capacity.
Trunks.—We noticed some splendid trunks,
of Portland manufacture, at Duran's, 165 Mid
dle street, yesterday.
Freedman’s Belief Association. — H.
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.

_1st Lieut. The quota called

Captain Barrows and three others volunteered,
no our quota is full and more. 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.

town will be made up in a day or two.
