MATTERS ABOUT TOWN.
Broom Marino.—From the days when the Dutch carried the broom at the mast head of their shi|w, in token of their asserted suprem acy of the seas, until the present time, this fa miliar article of domestic tidiness hits remain ed in its comer unheeded and neglected, un wept and uncr.red for, except to apply it to the base uses for which it was intended. But few persons in our goodly city are aware of the fact that a real “live” Com Broom Manufactory is now carrying on its noiseless operations on Union Street, and that thousands of ]>oimds of material is being converted into something which must Inevitably steeep the country.— There an1 bat three establishments of the kind in the State, one lieing located at Livermore Falls, another at Skowhegan, and one as above referred to, on Union Street. Feeling some curiosity to witness the manufacture of the article, we “popped in" upon Mr. Dexter Dan iels, proprietor of the “Portland Broom Works,” and were informed that one hundred brooms per day are “turned olT” by him, each occupying a space of ten minutes in its manu facture. The broom stuff is obtained in Illi nois, (torn which place it is brought by express, in compact wire bound bales of one hundred pounds each. This corn very much resembles Indian corn while growing, and is planted in “drills” in the spring. Hundreds of acres are now exclusively devoted to this culture, and Illinois farmers are reaping a rich harvest through the Industry of New England house wives. The article commands in this market eight cents per pound. Fell Through.—On Saturday, while some workmen were engaged in driving piles at Franklin wharf, the hammer, weighing 1600 lbs., in failing missed its aim, and passing its mark went through and down to the bottom, where it now lies firmly embedded in the mud More Facilities.—Those who enjoy a trip to the islands now and then, will be delighted to learn that the steamer “Tite” having been thoroughly refitted and repaired, will hereaf ter during the season, run seven times daily between the Grand Trunk Depot and the Ot tawa House, Cushing’s Island, making her first trip to-day. We learn that Col. Frank Miller has been appointed to the position of aid, by Gen. Shepley, and will shortly leave for New Or leans. jjy The Union Parish Church of this city, have voted to sell their property on Congress street, so we are informed, for rising ♦10,000. V. C. Hanson, Esq., is the purchaser. * JJ- We hapiiened into the extensive Gro cery anti Provision Store of F. A. Smith, on Silver street, a few mornings since, where we witnessed a scene of unwonted activity. What with the calls of his numerous customers, anti the supplying of the 17th Regiment, for which he has a contract, it was all hurry and bustle. Mr. Smith keeps a large assortment of prime goods which are sold at fair prices. jy Mr. C. C. Eaton, agent of the Interna Steamship Company, gives notice that there will be no boat for Eastport, Calais and St. John to-day. To-morrow, (Tuesday) the Istat will run, and leave this city hereafter on Tues day and Friday evenings. See advertisement. nr Rev. Edward P. Thwing, Pastor of the St. Lawrence Street Church of this city, has received aud accepted a unanimous call to Quincy, Mass. We learn that he preached a farewell discourse yesterday. The Mechanics’ Association of this city intend their annual excursion and picnic, shall be a grand affair. A writer in the Ad vertiser speaks of the distance as being about forty miles over the A. & K. aud Androscog gin roads. The A. A K. is a broad gauge and the Androscoggin a narrow gauge road, and the same cars cannot run over both. We pre sume the route will be over the Ken. & Port. road to Brunswick, and then by the connect ing Androscoggin road to the locality pro posed, both roads being of the same gauge and requiring no change of cars. V. C. A. and P. C.—This venerable associa tion will celebrate their 17th anniversary to morrow, at the Cape Lights. We understand the “advance guard’’ leave town this afternoon at 4 o’clock, for the purpose of pitching tents and preparing for the accommodation of the main liody of the Club, which w ill not leave until to-morrow morning at 4 o’clock. We hope to be able to avail ourselves of their kind invitation to be one of then. Gen. Shepley—We learn that Col.

The gunl«)«t Carondelet arrived here ve» I torday from Vicksburg, but brings no later news. The bulletin of tills morning has the follow ing intelligence from authentic sources: Among other military items as to the pro ceedings of tlie rebels, we have some inkling on tlie subjects discussed at two conferences of all the principal reliel military leaders held in Richmond on tlie 4th and 5th. it is under stood that they come to the conclusion that they must lose no more territory. The defen sive |iolicy of the south thus far was strongly attacked, axd Generals late and Beauregard advised the invasion of the North from three points, vix: from Cumberland on Williamsport into Pennsylvania, from I.oisville and Cincin nati into Indiana and Ohio, and from Paducah and Cairo into Illinois. It is alleged that the following plan of operations for tlie summer campaign were agreed upon: 1st. The immediate obstruction of the James river, to make it impassable for Gou. McClel lan to' use it for tlie means for communication with the government and for the transortation of reinforcements and army supplies. 2d. The occupation of Williansburg, York town and the entire Peninsula. 3d. The recovery of the whole of the terri tory of Virginia and tlie suppression of the Baltimore and Ohio Itailroad. 4th. The recovery of New Orleans. Memphis snd the Mississippi river, and tlie expulsion of the federal troops from Tennessee and Ken tucky. When these objects have been accom plished Generals Lee and Beauregard propose . ed a 5th: to make Potomac and Ohio rivers : at once their basis of operations and the fron i tier line and transfer the seat of war from Vir ginia to Maryland. 6th. To hurl upon Washington from Rich | mond a column of 200,000 picked troops, and ! by the capture of that city effect tlie lilieratioii of the city of Baltimore, and then invade the : North from the three points above named. t By thus lieeoming the invaders, the rebels I hope to make it necessary uor us to keep at I home, for tlie defence oi' our cities 500,000 j troops. From Now York New York, August 2. In Kentucky, if any attempt is mane to jug gle the Mate out of the Union, Governor Ma goffin will lie deposed from office and a provisional Governor appointed. The Post states that Col. Hawkins, of the Hawkins Zouaves, has been arrested forex pressing dissatisfaction with stratgetie and oth j er movements on the Peninsula. The steamship British Queen, from Nassau 29th ult., arrived this evening. Considerable excitement had been created at Nassau in con sequence of the U. S. steamer Adirondack j making chase of the Engli-h steamer Herald I and attempting to capture her. The government recently ordered all the employees in the navy yard to take the oath of allegiance at the Brooklyn navy yard to day. Several refused and were discharged. It was evident that sympathisers had been at work among them. WASIIIKGTON, August 2. An officer writing from Harrison’s Landing says all is quiet on the James river. One corps after another is being reviewed by Gen. McClellan, and the troops make a tine appearance. The soldiers are in good spirits and will l>e ready to deal heavy blows when called upon to strike the enemy. If New England, the Middle States and the Great West w ill do their duty now this wieked rebellion can be crushed forever. God grant that the call for more men may not be in vain. A special despatch from Washington to the Herald reports the marriage of the Count de l’aris to the eldest daughter of the Duchess of Parma, which, it is said, fuses the two royal branches of Bourbon and Orleans, and makes him the legitimate representative of the two houses. Counterfeit 10s on ttie Commercial Bunk of Bristol, It. I., were in circulation yesterday. Two women were arrested for passing the bills. It is stated that the Governor’s proclamation for a draft in this State will be issued within a few days. New York. August 2. A special dispatch to the Post from Wash ington, says Gen. HalJeck lias sent positive or ders to Gen. McClellan to impress all the ne groes within his reach, and to ask no questions whether they are slaves or free, ami to seize every' article of rebel property that can be made useful for the service of our army. There is a current report to-day that the government has decided to begin a general system of drafting hv the middle of August, in order to fill up old regiments to the maxi mum standard, at the earliest possible moment. As yet, however, there is no official confirma tion of this report. Capture of Blockade Bunners—A Brithish Steamer chased into Nassau. New York. August 3. The gunboat Magnolia arrived to-day, hav ing the British steamer Memphis in charge as a prize. A Key West letter reports the capture of the sloop Elizalietb from Havana, bound to the Saline* Pass with an assorted cargo, by tlie gunlxiat llatteras.

From Fortress Monroe. Fortress Moxroe, August 1. The rebels, it is estimated, threw over 500 shells, which lay this morning scattered pro fusely over the Held, and some bulged in the masts and spars. All that is known of the fate of the rebels is that they fled, and the trees where they had their batteries presented a shattered appearance and many were cut com pletely down. We could learn nothing more of the now Merrimae. and have heard nothing to coutra dict the statement already published. There was one federal gunboat near the landing, which opened lire immediately on the enemy, but they did not appear to notice it as they were so intent on shelling our camps. War Meeting. Lancaster.

Pondexter, another notorious ma rauder, with about an equal number of men was inaching on Glasgow yesterday where there are less than 200 of our troops. The guerrillas in north eastern Missouri will prob ably number 2000, but it is confidently bcliev that their o|**rations will be speedily brought to a close.

It was the first bold stroke in favor of the Union under the past administration. ^^■■Tliree Englishmen, subjects of Victo ria. were captured yesterday byCapf. Fine gas, while attempting to go over into the lines of the enemy. The reporter tells the story.— These fellows should be set to work paving | Commerce street.—[New Orleans Delta. I ff"' Col. Charles W. Roberts is the oldest Colonel in the Maine regiments. Is he not as worthy of promotion as Col. Uurnhaiu? Why should Col. Hotierts be passed over. If the gallant Second is to lie ignored through any interference of the friends of other men.it will ] cause a wide-spread dissatisfaction in the com munity. All other considerations except merit should lie banished in making promotions in the army. No doubt Col. Burnham has proved himself an excellent officer and a brave man, but neither Col. Burnham uoranyof his friends will claim any superiority over Col. Roberts in this respect,and promotions should be in order of seniority of merit.—| Bangor Whig. We presume the “friends of other men” make no invidious comparisons when they recom mend them. No one questions the bravery or | capacity ol Col. Roberts, but the Whig should bear in mirnl if lie is not a Brigadier, that the gallant Second lias not been ignored. If our memory serves us, Gen. Jameson was promot ed from that regiment, and certainly it cannot be tortured into a slight to it, if Col. Burnham is promoted as we hope he may he. What can iik done with ax Artificial Leo.— The following letter, testifying the great excellence of the “Palmer Artificial Leg,” manufactured in Boston, will be read with interest by all: Providence, May 22,18G2. Messrs. Palmer tc Co., Boston: Gentlemen,—It is thought by those unacquainted with the operation of artificial legs, that those who wear them are incapacitated for the “rough and tum ble” of life. My experience does not confirm that conclusion. Being something of a military man, I “enlisted,” hoping my loss would not be discovered. The officers to the corps to which I belong, the “Ma rine Artillery,” did not discover that I was lame, al though I had drilled every night for a fortnight. I succeeded so well that I was selected as Orderly Ser geant, but on inspection by the physician, my wood en limb was discovered, to their great astonishment, and I was obliged to retire. But it shows the great naturalness and wonderful efficiency of your inven tion. I go hunting freqently, and am on a steady tramp from 5 o’clock iu the morning till 9 o’clock at night. These are literal facts, which I think should be read and known to all who require the “Palmer Artificial Leg.” Yours, truly, J. p. BLAKE, 290 Broad Street, Providence, R. I. L. If.
