Per order of Town Committee. Westbrook, Aug. 1, 1862. A Dissatisfied Spirit. Our friends of the Argus areas difficult,and as hard to be suited, as was ever a class of per sons in ancient times, who, when a man came among them “neither eating nor drinking,” said, “he hath a devil,” but when another came, “both eating and drinking,” exclaimed, “behold a gluttonous man and a wine-bibber.” Of course, they know the many thousands of “contrabands.” made free either by escap ing from, or being deserted by, their rebel mas ters. must have a chance to live, for even the Argus, it is presumed, would not inbuinanly abandou them to starvation. To meet this practical exigency, something must be done.— If It is projiosed to let them come North, anil try their fortunes with other people for an honest livelihood, cither as servants, laborers, or eveu as lioot-blacks, the cry is raised about “negro equality,” “interference w ith w hite la borers,” “Africanizing the North," and similar cap tandem appeals to the prejudices of the unthinking. But when it is proposed to pro vide for them outside of the country, by ar rangement for colonization in the Danish West India Islauds, in Liberia, in Central America, or anywhere else, under the fostering rare of the American Government, then the cry is raised about “Abolition aristocracy,” that “abolition never cared for the black man,” and the wealthy opponents of slavery are called upon to open their houses and their hearts to receive the poor "plantation cattle” upon terms of perfect social equality! But when this alleged “abolition aristocracy” attempts to do something to ameliorate the condition of the poor “contraband” where he now is, and especially in the District of < oluin bia—the nearest free soil accessible to him— are our Argus friends any better satisfied f— Let those w ho think this is wital they demand, and that their objections to free negro invasion of the North, or colonization abroad, are hon est heart utterances, read that paper of the 1st instant, article—“Meeting for contrabands,” and then judge. A high-minded gentleman from that District hud come here to ap peal to tlie Argus’ “abolition aristocracy” for aid in behalf of the “contrabands,” to “give an account of their condition, wants and suf ferings,” and to ask sucli aid as the kind hearted and benevolent men of means might feel diaposcd p> grant, ttiat the unfortunate people of color, abandoned by a heartless set of reliel owners—the poor men, boys, women, girls and infant*—may he decently elotheil and comfortably fed, and ho* i» lie welcomed on such a mission by the press referred to? Head the following: “Let the District of Columbia provide for her paupers as Maine does for hers. • * |Tlie contrabands for w hom relief is asked, are not the freed slaves of the Distriet, but those abandoned slaves who have been passed through the federal lines, and have found their way to Washington,] Hundreds [of our sol diers] have left their bleaching hones on the ground from Bull Hun to New Orleans. The telegraph informs us daily of their needs.— Worn with toil and disease, wounded, suffer ing for medicines and suitable food, crying out for vegetables to ward off the scurvy, satisfied with clothes not “new,”—It seems to us these deserve our energies now. as they have taxed the energies and pocket* of loyal and patriotic mothers and fathers so largely already. * * Our idea is that it were better to let Congress take care of the paupers they have aided to make. They may humanely relieve themselves in part, by putting out to their especial friends a portion of these blacks, as New York does foundlings and children of vagabonds. We advise Mr. H. Hamlin, of Washington, in all good faith, that he return to his official duties at Washington. Just now the people are not in a temper to furnish “new clothes” and mon ey for these estray colored people.” The old story: “Why was not thisointment sold for three hundred pence and given to the poor?” It was no true friend to the poor who uttered this captious query, when the hand of penitence perfumed the person of a forgiving and loving master; but it was the thief, Judas, who carried the bag, and wanted the three-hundred pence, not for the poor, but to put in that bag that he, perhaps, might em bezzle it. Such objections usually come from the kinsmen or descendants of Judas;—the enemies of the poor, who, for thirty pie ces of silver would betray the truest friend the poor ever had. The suffering soldiers! We trust we are not insensible to their wants, or to the demands which their sufferings and necessities make upon tiie generosity of every humane heart.— Hut our observation has taught us the truth of this general proposition: that those who do the most for one class of real objects of chari ty and sympathy, do the most for all other classes. The man who gives liberally to one good cause is usually found to be the truest friend of all other good causes. The more he gives, the more he feels able to do so. Gener osity and benevolence grow by exercise, like all other qualities of the human heart. Be lief to the soldier or relief to the “contraband” is gathered from a generous, humane anil kind spirit, and the same spirit is ever approachable, and ever responsive to all genuine calls for the needy. But your morose, fault-finding, cap tious, quibbling, never ready men, who are so ready to tell what others should do, and to find fault with what others actually do, but so slow to do anything themselves except to quibble and find fault and hold back, are not the men to' favor any good cause. They are very forward to extol the cause that don't hap pen to be the one pressed upon their attention, but never ready to lend a farthing's aid when the hand of need is shoved directly in their faces. We will wager a suit of decent second hand clothes for a “contraband,” or anybody else, that those men in this city who do the most for the “contrabands,” are the very ones who have done and will continue to do the most for the needy soldiers. They have hearts, and the tale of suffering touches those hearts, and their pockets disgorge with a libera! free dom for all real objects of charity. But will any one think of going to your fault-finders, your “three hundred pence” men, your Judas like grumblers, for aid? Would the soldier get it any more'than the “contraband”?— Doubted. You might as well extract maple sugar from a dead hemlock, or blood from a white turuip, as to touch their hearts, or as to extract one particle of aid from them for any good cause. Interesting Irom linyti. We have, through Mr. Loring, late United StaU*» Consul at Aux Cayes, (the arrival of whom we announced in our paper of Satur day), some very interesting news from Hayti. On the 1st of May last, a revolution broke out in the city of Aux Cayes, to overthrow the government of Geffrard. For a long time ru mors were circulating in the city of Aux Cayes and elsewhere that the government was weak, and that the President was incapable of governing. In Gonalves, last year, some 20 or 30 indi viduals took up arms against the government. But Gefftard was not a man to soil the glori ous revolution of 1858 with blood; he pardon ed the conspirators; and at Aux Cayes they took it for granted that they would try it: If they succeeded, so much the better, if not, they would appeal to the clemency of the chief magistrate. But the designs of the con spirators were too horrible to meet with the sympathy of any honest heart. Plunder, mas sacre, and crimes of the most fiendish charac ter, were their ojhects to attain their aim, and Heaven could not sanction such a deed. One by one was arrested (making some 60 to 70), but eight of the principal leaders made their escape to Jamaica; the others had their trial before a martial court, which lasted a whole week. Every chance was allowed to the pris oners, some of them had lawyers from Port au Prince. The court brought in the following verdict: 26 were condemned to death (including the eight who made their escape), and only 14 were shot; 26 were condemned to three years of imprisonment, and the rest acquitted. Among those who have been shot, is a Gen. Salomon, a uibck oi euueauou. anu a oroiner oi tue ex MinUter of Finance under Soulouque. Had tlie President listened to the wishes of the people at Aux Cayes, he would have made a severe example with all of them. The coun try, on the 1st of July, was enjoying perfect tranquility, and business going on as usual; and if the Haytiens, one and all. knew what was liest for their own Interest, they would of fer prayers to Heaven, night and day, for the preservation of a man like GeflVard. who sac riflees everything for the welfare of the peo ple- _ [From our Regular Correspondent.] I.etter from the State Capital.

Cape Elizabeth, Aug. 2d, 1862. Afacte rirtute, O, Press! Purpooduck sends a blessing on the good promise of your useful life. We were glad to see the Press. We : have had enough of sleepy papers. If you hit the world in this generation you have got to take us on the wing. We do not want an En cyclopedia of agriculture, and literary criti cisms of Mother (loose in these stirring times. We take the Maine Farmer for our agricultur al column, and as for the literary criticisms of Harriet Stow, in our morning papers, we do not care a fiddler's anathema. We want a fresh, live newspaper, spicy, and racy, that deals to-day with the things of to-day; that says the right thing, at the right time, and in the rujht plan;, and is “around again to-mor row. That is w hat the Press has been so far. There may be others so, but “w'e don't see it.” There arc some “live men” in this latitude, and they like the sentiments of the Press, and they hope it will lead, and not follow. It is a time for boldness in expression of the truth just now. We have always been a little afraid of this quality down East. You cannot fail to see how the newspapers “tone down” all the way from New York to Bangor. There is a good deal of “secesh” in Maine yet—and we rejoice that we have in the “natural seaport” a journal that has the ability and the will to make secession smell unholy and rotten. We hope that you will exhibit this contemptible treason in such a light that it will die for soli tariness. We want this war ended. We met and voted at once an huudred dollars bounty, and more if needed. It was not needed. The quota was filled to overflowing immediately. We have a Cape Captain, and a Cape Lieuten ant. and more than our number in rank and file; and they will fight, ami we are going to take care of that company. We send them on to attend to our interests down South. Let no one say, then, that the Cape is not up with the times we live in. If any do not believe it, let them ask the old farmer that came over here from the Northern part of this county, to take up a mortgage of $20(X) held against him by a man on the sea-shore who holds many mort gages. The farmer, it is said, had been “sav ing up,” and, fearing to trust the banks in war times, had saved it in gold. Week before last down he lugged the gold, and paid it over, when the following colloquy ensued: “Why, you don’t mean to give this $2000 in gold, do you, said the lender. “Yes, certainly,” jsaid the farmer. “I was afraid of these pesky banks, and so I’ve been saving up the money in yellow boys, for you this long time.” “All right,” responded the lender, only I thought you didn’t take the papers, that is all.” “Tale I he papers t No, sir, not I. They have gone on so since the war's been going on, that I wouldn’t hare one of them in the house. “But the money's all right, isn't it?” “Of course; all right; you owe me $2000, and here is $2000—all right; here’s your note and mortgage.” And well might he have called it all right, as the primium on gold that day was 22 per rent, and his gold was not only worth the face of his bond, but $440 la-sides, enough to have paid for the Maine State Press for himself and remote posterity, for three hundred years.— But “he didn't take the papers.” The man who got the gold thinks it jntys to take the pa pers. Yours, Pond Cove. Correspondence ot the Press. Messks. Editors It is not all war .politics and haying. Ottr literary institutions are just now harvesting the crops of the year's sowing and cultivation; and here and there I have looked in upon examinations ami exhibitions in the country round about. On Tuesday of last waek, the term at South Berwick Academy, was closed with au exami nation in the tnoruiug, and au exhibition in the afternoon. Those of your readers who may have made the acquaintance of Mr. A. C. Stockin, in his connection with the Monmouth Academy, or with the Legislature, winter before last, will not wonder that his scholarly and genial char acter, and gentlemanly bearing, have been ap preciated during the year which he has just closed at South Berwick; and that his success is duly recognized by pupils and people. The examination, conducted in presence of a large number of literary and professional gentlemen, was very thorough and satisfacto ry. The exercises by the young ladies and gentlemen in the afternoon, were pleasantly varied in their character, ranging from "grave to gay," and full of patriotic and manly senti ment. I wish there were time to particularize. Let me say only that one of the parts, pre pared for our young friends by "Mrs. Parting ton” proved the old lady to be a true patriot. It represented the States loyal and “otherwise,” in the |iersons of as many young ladies who couducted a colloquy u|>oti the times in run ning verse, at once serious and interesting. The building and its surroundings are very tasteful, and the whole appearance of the In stitution attractive. Later in the week, a day at Lewiston, en abled us to witness the closing exercises of the Maine State Seminary. Of the examination and other exercises for Thursday, I can only echo the praise of others. The performances of Thursday, were in college form—with music, procession, governor and diplomas. The speaking of the young men, was creditable as a whole. So also was the reading of the young ladies—seven of them graduating at this an mversary, amt receiving diplomas in testimony of their proficiency in the “arts and sciences.” Mr. Cheney made a very pleasant and ap propriate address, to tiie young ladies and gen tlemen, closing their connection with the In stitution. On the following day, the Seminary at Gor ham. closed its year with a simple examina tion, without any parade or exhibition. The examination was very satisfactory to those present, showing great pains taking on the part of the teachers to impart to the young persons in attendance, a thorough knowledge of the branches pursued. Along with Latin. Greek and Spanish, with the higher English branches, it was very pleasant to notice the attention given to spelling and others of the less important studies sometimes so esteemed. Mr. Webb the Principle, is a teacher of expe rience and a man of energy; and liis associates are devoted to their work. E. P. W. Death of Cupt. M. R. Fessenden. A letter from one of the officers of the 12th regiment, dated at New Orleans, July 25th, says: “Tiie late Capt. M. R. Fessenden, of your city, died last evening, about 12 o’clock, of congestion of the brain. (I think it sun stroke.) He had been a little out ol'health for a day or two; but was out last evening, and came in about 0 o’clock, saying, as lie passed in, in reply to an inquiry, that “his Lead felt as if it was burning up.” At 9.30 he was insensi ble; and though everything was done that could lie done, lie remained insensible till his death. Mr. Robinson,a brother of Richard K. Robinson, of your city, died on the 22d of Ju ly, of brain fever. The Hancock County Republican Con vention is to be held at Ellsworth on the 20th inst. ORIGINAL AND SELECTED. Doubtless “consistency is a jewel,” but if so it is very sure that some people have a great aversion for this kind of jewelry. For example; they urge, its a particularly emphat ic objection to emancipation, that injustice would be done to the white laborers of the North, by overrunning the free States with a class of people who would work for low prices, and thus take the bread from the mouths of white men’s children. But it is nevertheless a fact, singular as it may seem, that this very class of sympathizers with honest white labor ers, were ready a year or two since, not only to allow slave labor to go into all our free ter ritories, to compete with and degrade free la bor, but they insisted lldelity to the South and love of the Union both demanded that such labor should be protected In those territories, e ven against the united voice of the free inhab itants thereof! This was precisely the Breck inridge platform, which even our friend—“the gentleman from Indiana”—has declared he supported, because he preferred it to that of any other Presidential candidate's—either that of Lincoln which proposed to exclude slave labor from the territories, or that of Douglas which propose to leave the whole question to the people immediately interested. A short time since the Advertiser ad vocated the overthrow of slavery—the libera, tion of every bondman. That was a few days before the Press was started. Saturday, Bro. Case said: The truth is this. The Southern negroes art" not yet sufficiently intelligent to render freedom a blessing to them. Hallowed Post office was recently rob bed of $100 worth of stamps. A Tall One.—There is a man in the 16th Regiment at Augusta, who is 6 feet, 6 1-4 inches high. His name is Edwin Farrar, from Bethel. e are indebted to Capt. Drew, of the 15th regiment, for late New Orleans papers. p The subscriptions of the Cliicago mer chants to the war fund already amount to about thirty-four thousand dollars. ‘J" Kentucky liolds an election for State officers to-day. We have a right to expect the election of good Union men in place of Magoffin and his association. ^r-An exchange objects to negroes in the Camp because they are lazy, and says they contrive to shrink all hardships, and are gross ly indolent when not under the strictest sur veillance ot an officer. Don't this prove that they know how to soldier ? The Boston Post says that all recruits who enlist in the old regiments will be dis charged when the regiments are mustered out of service. Some regiments have now less than two years to serve. E3f“Under the head of “The time has come,” the Advertiser of Saturday gave its readers a half column of editorial, from which we copy the two following paragraphs, which are its al pha it 'd omega, its beginning and ending: We recognize the negro as "a man and a brother,” of an inferior and subordinate race, for whom Christ died and rose again, as he did for his superiors. If the Government would send the editor of the New York Independent, Wendell Phillips, Win. I.loyd Gaarison, Senator Chandler and such like, to Fort Lalayette, to stay there till the war is is over, and the Union saved, all the people w ill say, Amen. So mole it lie.

Washburn's aids last year. The Argus suggests that we should be sent to Fort Lafayette. If justice is done all around, we shall soon be obliged to go there, or to some similar hotel, if we would continue our personal intimacies with the editor of that paper. MU" As the Argus has copied from the Boston Post what that paper gathered from its columns in relation to the Chief Magistrate of this city, will it kindly copy a paragraph from Saturday’s Post, gathered from a different source, and which shows the readiness of our Boston cofemi»orary to do an act of justice. A Repentant.—Tne individual who was jerked Into the Frog Pond on Boston Common, Monday, for uttering anti-Union sentiments, and who was afterwards jugged by the police, has repented, withdrawn his bad words ami enlisted in the Federal army. Let the tepen ted have all due credit. Going Under.—The New Orleans Delta 111.11 Ufl IS prvJIHIMJS Ills PUIUIPIS, somewhat hypothetically, tliat each one shall be allowed a quarter section of land at the close of the w ar. We can promise niauy of them, including Jeff himself, that they will, alKuit that time,enter a section of land, say six feet by tw<^ bt-e vldently to cast odium upon one-of the Massachusetts senators, the Boston Courier says: Henry Wilson is one of those Congressmen who have come home to engage in recruiting. On Tuesday evening Mr. Wilson addressed a w ar meeting iu Natick, his “own town," and obtained two recruits. On Wednesday eve ning Capt. Mahan, of the Mass. Oth. addressed a like meeting in the same tow n, and obtained twenty-nine recruits. It might be added that a half-dozen able-bod ied editors of the Courier have made no speeches, and have obtained no recruits, but have kept up a steady grumbling at those who have done both. Thk Nineteenth Regiment.—The Bath Times says this regiment is tilling up very rap idly. Squads from various localities are com ing iu every day. ' Lieut.

We have before alluded to the extreme strictness of the Surgeon’s examination, and we think there is danger of being too strict.— We know some of the rejected ones areas capable of enduring fatigue, and cun do as much service as any who have been mustered in.

The Times’ correspondent with the army of the Potomac, writing under date of July 31, says two suspicions rebel crafts, probably tlie Merrimac and Young America, cast anchor yesterday noon off Turkey Bend. Several of our gunboats were immediately sent to that vicinity—the Monitor making a reconnoisance: after which the gunboat fleet, including the Galena, Monitor, and others, an chored in line of battle off Light House Point. A balloon reconnoisance above and near Fort Powhattan. discovered no rebels or earth works in that vicinity. A branch railroad has been discovered from the banks of James river, opposite Berkley’s Landing to the Petersburg road. The correspondent closes as follows: Nine P. M.—The position of the fleet is un chained. The reliel rams an- still off Turkey Bend. IIow near we are to a naval battle every one can judge for themselves. Tlie Newborn correspondent of the Herald states that two expeditions were sent out. The lirst to Trenton, under Col. Lee, compris ing the 27th and 25th Massachusetts regiments, Belger's Itliode Island battery and four com panies of the 3d New York cavalry. The second to Pollocksville, under Col. Fellows, comprising the 17th Massachusetts and a por tion of the 3d New York cavalry. The few rebels at Trenton skedaddled, and at Pollocksville there was a slight skirmish with rebel cavalry, which resulted in the kill ing of two, wounding two and taking two prisoners. The object of the reconnoisance being ascertained, the expedition returned. Michael .1. Galvin of the 23d Mass, regiment was shot at in the street at Newbern. After being wounded, he shot and captured his as sailant. Col. Kurtz had the house in which tlie as sailants were secreted, pulled down on Satur day. Several arrests were also made. The The World's Washington dispatch says there is much excitement here in relation to military movements. Our armies are inarching along in pursu ance of a fixed plan, and it Is Indieved that matters are so timed as to ensure safety at once of Washington and McClellan’s army.— There is a larger force operating against the enemy in Virginia than people generally are aware of. There is no doubt as to the result of coming conflicts, which cannot bo long de layed. The same dispatch says our government w ill remonstrate against the French blockade of Tampico and Alvarado. Enough deserters and convalescent soldiers were marched up the Avenue to-day to almost form one regiment of infantry. The return of furloughed otiicers and soldiers to their com mand is becoming quite large. The correspondent of the Times at Culpep per. states that when (Jen. Hank’s force moved on to Little Washington, the guerillas killed and wounded one of our cavalry. The sol diers wished to execute the order of (Jen. Pope by retaliating on the village, hut (Jen. Hanks’ arrival prevented it. (Jen. Hanks sent out a party who captured nine prisoners, only two of whom were retain ed. the others being discharged. The Washington correspondent of the Her ald states that two residences of rels-L are strictly guarded by soldiers of Gen. McDow ell’s army, contrary to the recent order of (Jen. Pope. The Tribune’s corre«|K>ndent with the fleet off Vicksburg gives an interesting account of a concerted plan to cut out and destroy the relx-l guulxint Arkansas, but through some misunderstanding on the part of Farragut ami Davis, only part of the plan was carried out. This was attacking the relx-l guulxiat by Col. Ellet with his ram Queen of tile West, which was done in gallant style. The lam struck the Arkansas just all of her side guns, but having, by force of circumstances to stem the current, the blow was not so effective as was wished. The supporting guns failed to draw the tire of the batteries, which were all direct ed against Col. Ellet and his daring craft, but he managed to escape without being sunk, al though the Queen of the West was made a complete wreck by rebel shell and shot. Xot one of his crew were killed. a in?* cuiiBiucrcu us uuc in mr miwi uarill*; and gallant IVats of the war. which if well su]> ported, would have resulted in the capture of the rebel craft. The same correspondent states that refugees say the rebels have nearly completed two more formidable gunboats in Yazoo river, which will soon come down. The correspondent states that Commodore Davis’s llot ilia is in a most awkard position, and might, without difficulty, l>e swept from the river by such agencies as the enemy is said to possess. The ililton Head correspondent of the Her ald. under date of July 20, says a refugee from Charleston reports that Gus. Smith is in com mand there. The rebels have sent nine infantry and two cavalry regiments thence to Richmond, and otherwise depleted their force by placing large squads on the Savannah railroad. Every one capable of ltearing arms is forced to volunteer in the Southern army. Two iron clad rams, similar to the Mcrri mac, are being constructed at Charleston to destroy the blockading vessels. The steamer Economist w as expected and has probably reached there, as a large side wheel steamer ran in last Friday. The fleet off Charleston has lieen augmented and it is now thought impossible for vessels there to get out without capture. The rebel steamer Nashville is covered un der an eight guu battery in Dough Bay Bound with the gunboats Paul Joucs and Keystone State w atching her. The rebels have appeared in pretty strong force opposite Dawfuski and our troop* have left that Island.

He reviewed the troo|>s anil complimented them on their appearance and drill. Desertion has been checked much within the last few days, by stringent orders of Gen. Pope, several having been found guilty and sentenc ed to be bra uded and drammed out of the army. Everything is quiet at present in front. Fortress Monroe, August 1. It is rumored and believed here that the new Mcrriinac came down the river and is hourly expected to make the attempt to come further down—and one thing authentic—all tlie federal gunboat* have passed up beyond Harrison Landing, and there is not one in sight at tlie place, or on the river this side. Last night between 12 and 1 o’clock the reb els opened upon the outer centre of General McClellans'* army, w hich continued for about an hour and a half, from four rebel Imtteries of flying artillery, opposite tlie lauding—some above and some below. They threw shell of six and tw elve pounds, round and conical, and not one third of them exploded. The tiring was intended, no doubt, for our camps, but many of the shot fell short and thereby did little mischief to the shipping which was laying at the Landing,auii at anchor in the river. Several vessels and steamers were struck by fragments of shells, but no one was banned by tlicm. it is reported nine of our men were killed and only three wounded. It being in tlie dead ot night and our army expecting an attack in front, caused some delay before our guns open ed lire. In about half an hour our seige gun* were brought to bear upon them, and iu less than forty minutes the rebel* were silenced. The tiriii" was very brisk while it continued. It is thought tlie motives of tlie rebels in this action was to draw the federal gunboats dow n the river to enable their boats to pats ont. Portland Post Office Mail A r range men la.
