Siagilar View for a Loyal Man.
The editor of the Brunswick Telegraph
charges us with gross and willful injustice for
saying that “freedom and slavery seem to have
equal merit in his eyes; and to destroy the
government is no more heinous than to destroy
a hellish institution.” We certainly intended
no injustice, for, looking at his sensitiveness
whenever a hard word was uttered against the
secession-sympathizers, and his readiness at
all times to couple abolition with secession,
ami mj uemaua me Menace oi aDOlllloDlsls as
an offset for the havoc being made among the
rebels it did seem to us that our remark severe
though it might have been, was not unjust. If
there mat any seeming injustice in the remark
when it was made, we think all who read the
last number of his paper will admit that no
such seeming exists now. Mr. Tenney has
said an infinitely harder thing of himself than
we have ever felt disposed to say, and if we
quote his exai t language we hope he will
charge us neither with injustice nor a purpose
to create prejudice against his paper. It may
not be improper to say that though the Tele
graph is not strictly a political pajier, its editor
is a politician of a most intensified type—a reg
ular disciple of the school at the head of which
In, New England now stands the. Boston
Courier. In I860 lie was the editor of the
“Voice from the Belfry,” the campaign organ
of the “Constitutional Union” party of this
Mate.
In his last paper, after complaining of the in
justice and willful misrepresentations of the
Portland Press, he says:
Flatly and squarely we don’t see any differ
ence in the criminality of a man who talks se
cession, and one who talks rampant Addition.
As we are bound U> be misrepresented, let us
explain for tlie one hundredth time, what we
mean by a rampant Abolitionist.
Mr. Tenney then proceeds through some
twenty-five or thirty lines to tell what he does
not mean by “rampant Abolition,” and who do
not come in for his sweeping condemnation,
and then, to show, “who he does include” in
that category, lie answers:
Gov. Andrew of Massachusetts, who thought
his State would not raise troops, unless Hun
ter’s wild, fanatical policy was carried out—
who would make conditions with the Govern
ment—Charles Sumner who would throw all
the rebel States back into territories, the sim
plest form of secession—Henry Wilson, who
for purposes best know n to.hiinsolf, declared a
lew weeks since we had 150,000 too many men
and put a stop to recruiting—Ben Wade of
. Ohio,—Lovejoy of Illinois—Ciiaiidler of Mich
igan, who after McClellan’s change of base at
Richmond, made a most outrageous altaek up
on him in Ills place in the Senate—and lots and
lots of others like the above, whether in the
llalls of Congress or the walks of private life
—men, who in a word, seek to carry on the
war oidy to overthrow slavery, never to restore
the Union.
Such language as the above sounds very
queerly coming from a man claiming great loy
ty for the Union. Think of putting John A.
Andrew—a man of whole and generous soul—
into tlie same class with Jeff. Davis, because
Mr. Andrew believes God hath made of one
blood all nations of men to dwell upon all the
face ol the earth, and thus believing, like an
honest, earnest man, is willing and anxious to
see every yoke broken and the oppressed al
lowed to go free! But Mr. Tenney, in the ex
treme hatred of his soul for every man who
thinks more of universal freedom than of Afri
can slavery, cannot reler to Gov. Andrew with
out blending a falsehood and slander with
his spite. Gov. Andrew never intimated that
“his State would not raise troops unless Hun
ter's policy was carried out,” and none but
base calumniators will ever utter that slander
after having carefully read what Gov. Andrew
did say. No man has acted more promptly
than Gov. Andrew. He has acted so as to
challenge the admiration of even political foes,
but still he must lie abused, anil offered as a
fitting make-weight for Jeff. Davis, to pull at
the same rope, while his only sin is that he be
lieves human Itondage a moral, political and
social curse, and is honest enough to act in
harmony with his opinions.
Charles Sumner, too, a man of extreme views,
—impracticable views, perhaps,—who came
near losing his lift- at the hands of a chivalrous
bully, is tbe counterpart of a rebel because he
believes in the “barbarism of slavery.”
And then, too, Henry Wilson is another man
fit to swing in company with rebels; and all
because he thinks liberty is worth preserving
while slavery is lit only for destruction. And
Mr. Wilson is not allowed to escape without a
malignant falsehood hurled after him,—that he
“declared a few weeks since we had 150,000
too many men, and put a stop to recruiting.”
Tne ink is scarcely dry which recorded Mr.
Wilson’s emphatic denial of ever having made
such a statement, and yet it is hurled at him
as though it was true. Mr. Wilson lias stated
what he did say, and candid opposition jour
nals have had the manliness to stand corrected;
but not so tbe Brunswick Telegraph.
Geo. D. Prentice of the Louisville Journal is
viir ui ure wen lur winuii uic i negrajin itas
expressed great respect, and he has said that
yon may mark that man as a secessionist who
stands ready to hurl the charge of abolition
ngainst.those who are tailoring to put down
the rebellion. We commend his remarks upon
this point to the man ol the Telegraph.
While we are upon this mutter of abolition,
a word may not lie out of place in relation to a
sentiment that seems to he developiug in dif
ferent parts of tlie country. We allude to that
spirit recently indicated by Ex-Gov. Wiekliffe,
in Indiana, which refuses to sustain the gov
ernment except upon condition that negro sla
very shall be protected, or at least, shall re
ceive no harm. That heavy old man is re
ported to have declared that lie was in favor
of austaining the Union if slavery could be let
alone. Slavery was made superior to the Con
stitution, tlie Union, or popular liberty! and
this before a democratic assemblage of thou
sands, in the capital of a free State; and doubt
leas it was applauded to the echo by the sym
pathizing crowd; and yet tlie same men who
extol Wiekliffe for his loyalty are ready to
crucify Wendell Phillips because he ran see
nothing worth preserving in a Union that pro
tects and preserves slavery. A Union without
a slave would be a political hell for such men
—slavery without a Union would be a very at
tractive heaven!
Now we do not hesitate to say that any man,
North or South, who prefers dissolution and
slavery to Union and no slavery, is not only
as tad as the most arrant secessionist, but he
is a ba<e traitor, with a heart as black as the
ace of spades.
And we would like to know why it is, at the
present junction, that a large proportion ol all
the democratic conventions make it the bur
den of their resolutions to holster up this rot
ten, withering and doomed curse ofour Amer
ican institutions ? If its peculiar friends are
disposed by their own follies, to put ittodoath,
why hold them hack ? Why not allow them to
do so? Take the resolutions of almost any re
cent democratic convention, and while their
support of the government is contingent, is
made to depend u|x>n the strict constitutional
ity of the government’s arts, and perhaps its
perfect noninterference with slavery, their re
spect for slavery and their disposition to see it
out of all trouble, are perfectly unfettered by
conditions, and full, explicit and unmistakable
in their tone. Why is it? Echo answers, why ?
Commencement at “Old Bowdoin.”
Once a year Brunswick gives signs of an
approaching “event"—the event of tlie season,
in her usually quiet and sober routine of life.
That event is |the annual commencement at
“old Bowdoin,” when a large class of “finished"
young men are fitted out with parchments,—
sort of “clearances,” in commercial phrase—
and sent out into the world for its weal or its
woe, some to become lawyers, to reduce “poor
devils” to a dose of strychnine: others to be
come doctors, to apply the stomach pump;
and still others to become clergymen, to per
form the last sad rites over those who fail to
run the gauntlet successfully between the oth
er professions; at''1 there lx? others who fall
into neither of the "professions;" possibly
they may become men, and contribute to the
world's commonwealth by tilling more useful
callings. Seriously, however,—not intending
the above as a reflection upon the professions,
for all of which we have a proper respect,—
the annual Commencement at Brunswick is a
stirring event- It is the focus to which the
wind sets from all directions, and everybody is
expected to lx? there, and to bring his friends.
Kven to-day—Monday forenoon—though Com
mencement proper is tw o full days ahead, a
stranger Ileal's the note of preparation, and
sees the beginning of an unusual bustle. Tak
ing time by the forelock, we—that is, one of
the dual editorial corps (not corpse) of the
Press, have removed our heaihpiarterx to
the scene of operations, and for the next three
days, if not from the saddle like (Jen. Pope, we
shall date from the ncighborhixxl of the great
eirentittff operation that is destined to crowd
the class of young gentlemen aforesaid, out
from their four years of cloister life, into the
seething, hissing, surging, restless, and busy
world.
As we have said, even a stranger, at this
early hour, hears the note of preparation.—
Like Niagara, before making tile gigantic leap,
gathering up iu foam and rapids for one grand
exhibition, or Vesuvius, steaming up in her
subterranean caverns for one mighty eruption,
so our friends in the “down east" Athens, gath
er up their forces for one tremendous effort,
on each returning first Wednesday in August.
Hotels w ill be crowded, stables overrun, pri
vate houses taken captive by strangers, and
all the town’s stock of edibles, for “man and
beast” will vanish during the week like dew
before the rising sun; for Commencement
whets the appetite, and hungry people eome
in swarms up to this great mutual “feast of
reason, and flow of soul.”
This afternoon Is to come off' the usual ex
ercises, when the “Old Tree" in the College
grounds will witness a scene long to be re
membered by the graduating class: and when
many a pleasant word will be spoken, many a
tear will silently flow, and many a merry laugh
will ring out among the neighboring pitch pine
growth. In the church will be performed an
oration and a poem, and in the evening an ex
hibition of one of the classes is to come off, all
of which will be fraught with interest. We
shall report them in due season, but as the
mail closes before any of these things take
place, we must defer a notice of them till to
morrow. *
ujP“IIall, with heavy showers of rain, vis
ited a portion of the farmers on Sandy river,
July 31, but doing very little damage. Rains
have been very frequent for ten days past, so
much so that haying has progressed but little,
The hay crop will be better than was anticipat
ed in June. O. W. T.
More Troops Called for.
The government is in earnest and every loy
al man rejoiced last evening, when the tele
graph announced that orders were Issued for
calling for 300,000 of the militia to serve
nine months unless sooner discharged. The
people will sustain the government in this
move and furninh the men. They want to
see movements on a gigantic scale, and they
are ready to res)»ond. Maine will not be
found wanting. It is estimated that under the
last call, at least ten thousand men have en
listed, being three thousand more than our
quota, and we believe this second draft will be
filled by volunteers. We hope that recruiting
will not be stopped again during the war. Our
regiments now in the field ought to be kept
full, aud seventy-five recruits put into these
regiments will be worth 100 men in new regi
ments. Rally men of Maine. Rally and let
the proud banner of the Dirigo State still lead
the way. Farthest from the scat of war, she is
responding right gloriously to the call of the
President,
We have no space for more remarks at this
time.
[For the Press.)
The Sons of Temperance.
Messrs. Editors:—In the Advertiser of
August 4th, is au editorial with the above cap
tion, which deserves a passing notice. The
article in questiou is perfectly characteristic
tlwi (iti'uo iliototivrSol umimui fenm nikruion {4
emanated. Having “paid his respects” to the
Press, wrung the neck of that “pauper” the
Temperance Journal, he now proposes to try
the “grit" of the “Sons”—iu other words to
bring down his “Hooaier” paw upon them so
hard that they shall no longer be “a power in
the State.”
He says, “That the Sons of Temperance are
generally honest and sincere, we suppose is
true.” Much obliged for that. I suppose the
“Sons” will return the compliment, sometime
when they eau do it conscientiously.
I am told that the statement respecting the
action of the Grand Division condemnatory of
Gov. Washburn and President Lincoln is in
correct ; but of that I do not know personally;
but I do knoie that the charges contained iu
said article respecting the “secret political”
character of the order is totally false. That
“it strikes in the dark;” that “it lues entered
the political arena;” that “it makes its own
nominations in secret,” <tc., 4c., are severally,
statements without a shadow of foundation
in fact.
Whether the “voters in this city and county,”
or any other vicinity, will ostracise the “Sous”
at the beck amt nod of the “gentleman from
Indiana” I cannot say, neither can I aver that
several year's residence in the grape-growigg,
Catawba region is calculated so to “obfusti
cate" one's vision, so that he “can't see” that a
thimbleful! less of rum has been drank in con
sequence of the doings of the “Sons of Tem
perance. Vet I opine that the people here
about “don't see it in that light;” furthermore
that they will be slow to take their lessons iu
temperance of one who sneers at the principle.
I hope, trust and believe that the next ses
sion ol the Grand Division will not suffer itself
to be so misrepresented respecting its action,
by the reporter of an unfriendly sheet.

To the Editors of the Portland Press:
Allow me through the columns of your pa
per to return my grateful acknowledgements
to the citizens of Portland, who have so gener
onsly assisted me on the occasion of the des
truction of my printing office in St. Stephen,
X. B., by a secession mob. Such testimonies
are as oases iu the desert of life, and will show
to the malignant demons who have been perse
cuting me for the advocacy of Union senti
ments, that I am not destitute of friends in this
emergency, My paper shall tie re-established
in a few weeks, and with a firm belief in the
cause that I have hitherto humbly defended, I
shall continue to fight the foes of the Union
wherever I find them. J. S. Hay,

Wixiiham. — A correspondent from this
town writes as follows:
In your daily of Tuesday last, in which there
apjicnrs an election of military officers in
Windham, there is an omission of one com

Samuel T. Johnson. Captain: Chas. Jones,

Withdrawal of Mr. Frye.—W. P. Frye,
Esq., ol Lewiston, who has been a prominent
candidate for Congress in the old second dis
trict, lias withdrawn unconditionally from the
canvass. The Lewiston Journal says the with
drawal of Mr. Talbot, and the announcement
that Mr. Perhani, of Oxford county, would lie
a candidate, has so unexpectedly changed the
character of the canvass, that Mr. Frye deems
it his duty to withdraw from a position which
lie would not have assumed had the same state
of things existed when he consented to the use
of Ills name in connection with the nomination.
We regret exceedingly, says the Journal, as
will hosts of his personal friends, that circum
stances should have prompted Mr. Frye to
take this course, although we can but respect
and honor the high and honorable motives
which prompt his withdrawal at a time when,
to say the least, his chances for the nomination
are equal to those of either of his competi
tors. The republicans of Androscoggin coun
ty,—as well as other friends outside of the
county—would have given Mr. F. a strong and
united support—a support which his ubility
and integrity well merit.
rw- t here is force in the remark of an old
gentleman, that young men who neglect to
serve their country in this hour of its peril,
either in the army or navy, will bitterly regret
hereafter that they cannot share in the honors
and glory w hich await the country’s defenders.
Cotton Cloth.—The very coarsest r *lcle
of cotton cloth now brings IS cents a yard, o,.
the sales are very slow. Cotton sheeting that
sold for ft cents has advanced to 23 cents a
yard by the bale. Tickings have advanced to
40 cents by the bale. Tile production of cloths
is now not one quarter of the production in
common times, and the mills are now stopping
in every direction. At the present price of
cotton, manufacturers cannot make standard
widths cotton for less than 10 3-4 cents actual
costs, and they will stop their mills rather than
take t lie risk of cotton at high prices, w ith a
prospective loss on their good-. [Price Cur

ORIGINAL AND SELECTED.
EtJT'The Argus la welcome to nil It can
make by its wilful anil malicious misrepresen
tation of the Press. It is characteristic, how
ever, and we shall be surprised to see that pa
per make any allusion to us without misrepre
senting onr position or perverting our lan
guage. It maintains its unenviable reputation
wonderfully.
A correspondent of the Bath Sentinel
and Times says, “there is a small squad of se
cessionists in Lincoln county who are doing
all they can to discourage enlistments.” Why
did not the writer give their names ? Then
the projier authorities could attend to their
cases. It is probable that they all read the
Argus.
Patriotic.—Our Brother, A. M. C. Heath,
of the Gardiner Home Journal, has enlisted as
a private in the 16th, passed the surgical ex
amination and has been mustered in. We un
derstand that ltev. G. Bailey is to occupy the
editorial chair of the Journal during the ab
sence of Mr. Heath.
“Birds of a Feather.”—-Frank Smith's
paper and the Argus seem to have “joined
drives” and to be drilling harmoniously down
the same stream. The Argus copies approv
ingly from the Advertiser, and at its bidding
does up its masterly poetical criticisms. Hand
in hand they walk lovingly together, and to
each other may repeat the words of the poet:
“There in nothing but death
Our affections cau never.
And till life's latent breath
Love shall bind us forever."

New Hampshire Mechanic and Indus
trial Fair.—There is to be a Mechanic ami
Industrial Fair for the encouragement of the

cing on the 15th day of September next, and
continuing five dnys. We arc informed that
tlie entire net profits of the exhibition are to
expended in aid of the New Hampshire volun
teers, and we hope it may receive the gener
ous patronage of the people. All articles
must be addressed to Henry M. Carter, Cor
responding Secretary, Portsmouth, N. II.
The Sons or Temperance.—This Order
has fallen under the ban of the Advertiser,
and was annihilated yesterday morning by one
blow of that terrible bludgeon. The Sons of
Temperance need no defence at our hands trom
such attacks. Everybody knows that the Or
der is not a political organization and never
was. It numbers among its members men of
all political parties, who can unite upon its
platform if they differ upon other questions,
and the idea of charging it with being a se
cret political organization is simply absurd.
The sweeping statement of our neighbor,
“That there is not a distinguished officer in
the army or navy, that is worth the powder it
would take to blow him up, that is a tetotaller,
or ever was or ever will be,” Is another of
those magnificent absurdities peculiar to it
Gen. Howard, Gen. Dow, Col. Plaisted, and a
host of others of our gallant Maine officers,
must feel flattered.
Installation in Bath.—On Tuesday of

Head-Quarters Army of Potomac. Aug. 4th.
—Ever since the firing upon our shipping at
the mail boat landing by the enemy’s batteries,
our troops have occupied the opposite shore.
Yesterday a reconnoisance was made from
that point back into the country, to w ithin 14
miles of Petersburg. It was conducted by
Col. AvereH, and was composed of 150 of the
U. S. 5th and 150 of the 3d Pa cavalry with 4
companies of the 1st Mich, infantry.
Capts. Castor aud Bowen of Gen. McClel
lan’s staff accompanied them. At Cox’s Mills,
5 miles from the river, they encountered the
13th Va. cavalry drawn up in line. Our men
charged on them, when they broke and ran.—
We drove them to their encampment in Syca
more Church, and 2 1-2 miles further, when
they again formed, but were ingloriously put
to flight. leaving behind all their tents, camp
equipage and commissary stores, which our
troops gathered together and burned.
The rebels had 2 killed, 6 wouneed and 2
taken prisoners. Our lore was one horse kill
ed. After scouring the country a short dis
tance further they returned to the river. There
is no further evidence of rebel gunlioats on the
river this side of Fort Darling.
Information received here goes to show that
the new Merrimac will not be ready to operate
for three weeks yet. Two of the gunboats
wen- yesterday afternoon engaged in shelling
the opposite shore above City Point.
The health of troops has improved ever since
they began to receive fresh vegetables, which
were ordered to be issued them by Geu. Mc
Clellan.

A Fortress Monroe letter to the Post says
Gen. Burnside’s corps have embarked and are

town, which was occupied by two regiments
of the enemy's cavalry. Eleven of the enemy
were killed and 52 taken prisoners, among the
latter are one Major, two Captains and two
Lieutenants. Our loss was two killed and
three wounded.
The enemy retired in such haste as to leave
their wounded in our hands.
The railroad and telegraph lines between
the Court House and Gordonsville, were de

jyGermany has produced a substitute for
gunpowder, in the form of starch and nitric
acid. It is stated that its projectile is greater
than that of common |ioivder, and as it is not

it, ami no more "villainous saltpetre” need be
