MATTERS ABOUT TOWN.
A Pleasant Place.—A trfp to “Saffords* Paradise,” or Pond Cove, Ca|>e Elizabeth, will well repay the lover of grandeur, a* exhibited in ocean scenery. A party of town merchant*, under the directing care ot Messrs. Hillman. Grant, ft. at., having determined to make a wee excursion to the above place, kindly hon ored us with an invitation, which of course we felt in duty bound to accept. A pleasant drive of 4 1-2 miles brought us to the south-eastern shore of Cape Elizabeth, where, expanded be fore our admiring eyes, lay tile boundless ocean, enlivened by and dotted with those gems of beauty, the islands of Casco Bay. A stone’s throw from the “paradise” our lines were out, and in the short space of ten minutes forty eight “dinners” lay floundering on the cold, cold rocks, In eager ecstacies at the prospect of the genial warmth of the frying-pan. It was our good fortune to And the tables at the grove in possession of another party of ladies and gentlemen, whose kind and cordial reception of us but enhanced the pleasure of our enjoy ments. This party having been extremely un fortunate in snaring the flnny occupant* of the seas, had applied to a patty of gentlemen ( ?) who were fishing near by, and who had been very fortuuatc, to supply them with three fish to make out their complement. These unkind mortals replied with a gallantry unsurpassed, that “fishing was not their occupation, and that they could not sell or give any away.”— Comments are unnecessary. Are they happier in keeping half a bushel of fish for the cat at home? Mr. S. D. Hall, proprietor ol the “Paradise, we found upon the lot, earnest in his best endeavors to please us, and we shall not soon forget the many kind attentions re ceived at his hand. Excursionists desirous of finding a happy retreat from the cares of busi ness, will find in this romantic spot a haven of rest seldom met with, and oue from whose liosotn nature with her thousand and oue tsanities ran be seeu in all of her most endear ing rhr. a The Past, Present Before Us—A relic ot days long since departed, has been laid up on our table, being a copy of “ The Bouton Keening Pont,” under date of August 24, 1767, printed upon a sheet ten inches wide by six teen inches long. It has but three columns to a page, and is filled with the most quaint ideas. We select an article of interest, bearing upon the state of feeling existing between the colo nies and the mother country, at that peculiar era in our nation s History, me article allud ed to, is an extract from the London Gazetteer of April 0,1767, and reads as follows: Right, Wrong and Reasonable, wrrit regard to AMERICA.—It is reasonable for us, O ye Americans! though we know the fond preference you give to the manufactures of your mother country is so great, that a piece of French cloth, nr silk, was never worn among you, but even when taken in prizes, has been sent away to the French islands, as unsaleable with you, yet, to make you odious here, draw severities upon you, ami wean that affection yon have for this country, which is so advan tageous to our commerce, we are to charge you w ith a fondness for French manufactures, without the least foundation of truth. In fine, it is reasonable tor us to deprive you even of the common privilege of Englishmen, trials by juries: to restrain, by every means, your pro curing money from foreigners, to refuse you even the use of paper, whereby you might bet ter spare your cash to us, and, after all, to “wonder that you do not pay your debts.” In another part of the paper we find the fol lowing item; “Letters from Quebec say that they were hi great hope of discovering a navi gable communication from Lake Superior to the South Seas, by means of a great river, which the native Indians had reported to run many leagues to the westward.” The latest intelligence from New York was seven days old at the time of publication in Boston. A packet for London, the brig Fanny, of 120 tons burthen, was advertised to sail in fourteen days, having already two-thirds of her cargo on board. The “History of the Province of Massachusetts Bat, from the charter of K. William and Q. Mary in lflfll, until the year 1750, this day is published, and to be had in Union street, opposite to the Cornfield.” Al so, “To be sold, a likely negro man, about 23 years of age of age, for want of employ only. Enquire of the printers.” Gross Carelessness.—The soldiers at Fort Preble practice target firing. This is well but then their target should be so placed that balls failing to hit it would do no damage. We are informed that two vessels, one inward and the other outward boiwJ, were passing the Fort yesterday while a squad of soldiers were practising,and that the bullets flew around them rather too plentifully for comfort. One bullet pierced the sail of one of them within a few inches of the head of a man who was standing by the main sheet. The officers should see to it that the target is properly placed. An Honest Driver.—On Saturday after noon, while riding in the omnibus, Mrs. Brewer of Robbinston dropped her wallet, containing quite an amount of money. She did not miss it until she arrived at the house of her friend, when she immediately informed Messrs. Hunt A Jewett of her loss, and yesterday morning, Mr. Gee, the owner of the omnibus line, re turned the wallet and its contents. That driv er was honest, end if another driver will return to the owner the amount he received by mis take, we will call him honest too. rtnt Con i If* _A _ _| IJ soda, with fresh syrups, call at Lo king's, cor. Excliange and Federal streets, and get it. Coming! Coming!—Eighteen smart, hale fellows inarched through our streets yesterday from Saco river, uuder care of Mr. James Locke of Buxton, and thirteen from Gorham, under Capt. Wentworth. These men are des tined for the 10th Maine regiment. ter Between eight hundred and nine hun dred men were in Camp King yesterday. A tine body of men from the towns of Brun swick, Naples and Canton entered camp yes terday. The ftineral of the late John Chute, Esq., formerly cashier of the Canal Bank, will take place at 8 o’clock, this afternoon, from his family residence. C3T" The Band Concert of the 17th Regi mental Band, for Wednesday evening, promi ses to be a grand affair. The proceeds of the concert will be given to the Ladies’ Committee in aid of our sick and wounded Maine soldiers. tCW“ A small skirmish happened yesterday at the Boston Depot, between a captain and mate of a vessel lying near. After a few passes the ardor of both was cooled, a simple contusion or two being the only wounds re ceived. Explanatory,—The Mayor authorizes us to say, that no liquor is sold on any of his premises, with his knowledge or consent, and never has been. He has several tenements, which tenants have underlet, and it is jiossible that illegal traffic may have been carried on in some of them tlyly and without his knowledge. In all his leases a clause is inserted, forbid ding the sale of ardent spirits, and other intox icating drinks, as well as all other illegal uses. The City Marshal also has orders to look sharply after them, and if he finds illegal prac tices in any of them, to put the law in force, at once against them. He will also remove from any of his tene ments, any, mid all persons, violating the laws, and the lease.—[Advertiser 4th. Fog Agais.—It does seem as if the fair face of Portland city was never more to behold the sun again; fog, and its accoinjmnyiug “mizzle,” being the order of the day.

Mayor Opdyke sent in a message urging immediate steps to co-o|>crate with the federal government in perfecting the defences of New York harbor, and recommending the appropriation of $1,000,000 for the purpose of constructing iron-plated batteries and ships. At the meeting of the Board of Aldermen an ordinance was offered providing a bounty of $50 in addition to all other bounties offered by the State or United Slates, to each volunteer, and appropriating $25,000 therefor. Negroes Not to be Armed. New York, August 4. A special dispatch from Washington to the Post says, in answer to the inquiries of a dep utation of prominent citizens who waited up on the President to-day to urge the accept ance of negro regiments. Mr. Lincoln replied that he could not accept of them only as la borers. This, it is understood, is the "settled policy of the government. From Washington. Washington, August 4. The boat from Acquia Creek has brought up over 100contrabands, who are principally from Caroline County, Va. Many of them have been away from their homes for a considerable time. They were sent to the Creek on Satur day. On their arrival there they were sent to the contraband quarters. Among them are persons of all ages, hues and sizes, including a sprinkling of infants barely a week old. The women for the most part hugged the children Indian fashion, and the men wore on their shoulders immense bundles of baggage. The Star of to-day says, “We are informed that the negroes of this city are organizing secret associations for the purpose of protect ing themselves in anticipation of a riot and mob by the laboring classes of the whites, sim ilar to those which lately occurred in New Albany, and Cincinnati, and other places. It is also alleged that n number of clerks in the government employ are aiding the negroes in perfecting their organization. Our informant is a colored man of this city.” Preparations are making on a grand scale for the war meeting to be held on grounds at east front of Capitol at 5 o’clock Wednesday, lion. Geo. S. Boutwell, Commissioner of In ternal Revenue, Hon. L. Sweet of 111., Hon. Richard W. Thompson of Ind.. Senator Har lan of Iowa, Gen. Wadsworth Military Gov ernor of the District of Columbia, Col. Wm. Harrow of III., and others, have accepted in vitations to speak, and numbers are invited, and will tie present should their public duties at the Uie time not prevent. The Marine Band has lieen detailed to |ierform during intervals of speaking, the usual promenade concert on the west grounds of the Capitol being post poned lor that day. Mai. Wallack will pre side. It is believed a brigade will be raised in the District of Columbia and vicinity without drafting, if the proper course be pursued. Capture of a Rebel Mail--Refugees from the Bouth—A-rests. Washington, August 4. The steamer Reliance a few days ago cap tured a canoe in the Rappahannock in the neighborhood of Urhana with a mail of about 400 letters addressed mostly to officers and men of the 50th Virginia regiment, near Rich mond. The letters are mostly of a private character. One of the letters is addressed to Capt. Heron, and asks him to send some of Uncle Sam's green backs, [Treasury notes) the writer being mider the impression that the officers and soldiers ol the reliel army had made themselves rich by robbing the killed and wounded federal soldiers of the money they had on their person. The steamer Wyandank has brought eight prisoners and five refugees from the lieighW liood of tlie Rappahannock. The prisoners were taken during the past week and were en gaged in trans|iorting goods across the Chesa peake and Rappahannock to the rebels. The Wyandank a few days since overhauled the schooner Mail, of Brooklyn, for violating the blockade by trading with the inhabitants south of the Rappahannock. The Captain was tak en on hoard the Wyandank and the schooner sent up to the navy yard. Several refugees came up on the Wyandank. They all reside in Middlesex Co. anil were at one time in the 55th regiment, but made their escape when the regiment left Fredericksburg for Richmond. Rev. T. N. Conrad, who has recently lieen preaching for the Southern Methodist Church, inis lieen arrested by the Provost Marshal and sent to prison. The charges against him are holding communication with the enemy and trying to induce his scholars to enlist in the rebel army. Dr. Caup was arrested last night for seces sion language. It is said his effects wore searched and among other things a letter from Beauregard w as found. War Meeting. Providence, August 4. There was an immense assembly at the war meeting in Market Square this afternoon. The Square was tastefully decorated. Maj. Knight presided. Speeches were made by Governor Sprague, Lieut. Gov. Arnold, Bishop Clark, President Sears, John L. Surft, Rev. A. L. Stone of Bostou, Rodman and others. For three hours the audience listened to the speaking. Resolutions were adopted, urging the President to use every constitutional means in his power to suppress the rebellion, declaring that we knew only two parties: loy al men and traitors, and asking the Governor to add the enrolled to the active militia. The announcement that a draft had lieen ordered by tiie government, was received with loud cheers. Rhode Island is determined to do her part in lighting until they were through to the end. Gov. Sprague has railed on the colored citizens to form a regiment as a part of the quota of the State. He will probably accom pany them to the field and share the perils with them. From Fortress Monroe. Fortress Monroe, August 3. About 25 rebel prisoners arrived here from Baltimore this morning. They are going up the river to be exchanged, and came under guard of a detachment of the 8th Co. of the ith New York regiment. The mail steamer arrived at 3 o'clock. There is no news from our fleet on the James river or the new Merriinac. Capture of two Rebel Vessels. Washington, August 4. Information has been received at the. Navy Department, of the capture of two reliel ves sels near Berwick Bay, by the U. S. steamer Ilattcras. Kentucky Election. Locisvii.i.e, Kv., August 4.

Cainp, Gatymer, Coon, Iiurma, Zouhey and Ilazelton, with an aggre gate of $1,800,000. Anny circles here give these rumors no credence. Bounty Fund Cincinn atti, August 4. Contributions to the bounty fund commenc ed to-day. Few persons have already sub scribed $0000. Richmond Evacuated. Headquarters Army of Virginia, I August 4. ) Information from various sources tend to confirm the belief that the enemy have really evacuated Richmond, and taken up the south bank of James river as the line of their dc feuces. The cavalry under Gen. Robertson are lie lieved to have been withdrawn from the Shen andoah Valley, leaving that part of the coun try to the defence of the guerillas alone. Washington, August 4. It has been believed here in some quarters for several days that the enemy have been evacuating Richmond, there being a reasona ble suspicion that a pestilence has broken out in that city. Deserters. Sperryville, August 4. First I.icut. Winfield Simpson of Co. K. 2d New York Volunteers, and Lieut. Wm. Allen of Co.

B. Elliott, which is now in press: “Since one hundred and four (104.4) out of every thousand men (officers and privates to gether) in the entire army is the constant pro portion of sick, it follows that, to secure in the Held a constant force of five hundred thousand (5U0,000) iff re tire (or healthy and able) men, the nation must constantly inaiutain in hospi tals. or elsewhere, an addition force of flfty eight thousand (58,000) sick men, making the entire force maintained, Isith sick ami eflective, to consist of Hve hundred and fifty-eight thou sand (558,000) men, four per cent., or 22,000 of this entire force, would be commissioned officers, and ninety-six )>er cent., or 530,000, enlisted men. And since to support continuous losses in the ranks of the enlisted men, other than losses from expiration of service, requires recruits at the annual rate of 220 per 1000 en listed men, it follows, that to keep tire ranks of these 530,000 enlisted men constantly full will require annually 123,000 recruit*, 20,000 of these recruits being demanded to supply the annual loss occasioned by death; 54,000, the loss arising from discharged from service, main ly from disability; 27,000 for excess of deser tions over returns of deserters to duty; 7000 missing in action, uot subsequently otherwise accounted lor, and 0000, the loss from other causes. “To repeat—assuming the returns of the period from the 1st of June, 1801, to the 1st of March, 1802, as the ha-is of calculation, it fol lows, that to secure in the field a constant force ol 600,000 eflective men, the nation must not only maintain 68,000 sick men, but it must also recruit the rauks of the culisted [fortion of these forces with new material, at the rate of 123.000 per annum, so long as the war shall last; a rate somewhat exceeding 10,000 recruits per month. Of these 123,000 annual recruits, 83.000 are to supply losses by deatii and dis charges from service (exclusive of discharges for expiration of its term); 34,000 for deser tions and missing in action (not returned or otherwise accounted for); and 0000 to supply other losses specified and unspecified. “The five hundred thousand (500,000) effec tive men are equivalent in number to the num ber of men in 573 regiments of the average numerical strength, (that is 872 men each); and the 58,000 sick equivalent to 07 regiments of average numerical strength; the entire force of 558,000 men to be maintained being equiva lent to 040 regiments of average strength.” An IrlsRman, driven to desperation liy the stringency of the money market ami' high price of provisions, procured a pistol and took to the road. Meeting a traveler, he stopped him with—“your money or your life!” Seeing that Pat was green, he said: “I’ll tell you what Pll do; Pll give you all my money "for that pistol.” "Agreed.” Pat received the money and handed over the pistol. “Now,” said the traveler, “hand hack that money or I’ll blow your brains out.” “Blaze away, my hearty,” said Pat, “never a drhop of powthcr there’s in it.” TDKEY’S Hair-Dressing Rooms Arc removed to the new building, NO. 151 MIDDLE STREET, Opposite his former place, and over_E.
