I8t)2. 1 The i-ebcls got several batteries in position on the other side of the river, and about 2 o’clock in the morning commenced to shell our camps at the Landing. The lights that were burning on the transports and in the camp were immediately extinguished, and so they failed to get good range, and consequently did but little damage. Several lancers were killed, being in camp near the river, and some dam age was done to the trains. Oar Beige guns that were planted on the banks of the river gave them a few compliments, in the shape of 100 pounders, which were no doubt appreciat ed by the midnight “chivalry." Since we landed on the Peninsula it has been no uncommon thing for the enemy to make these night attacks, and while we have always responded to them, to let them know that we were “alive,” this cowardly example they have seen fit to set has never been imitated by our Generals in a single instance. They have, however, done but little damage in this way, except that our men have been at times de prived of their rest by this course. Several surgeons from Maine have arrived, and have been assigned with the different Maine regiments in this army. Their services are much needed, and w ill lie appreciated by our brave fellows, many of whom are so unfort unate as to need their medical treatment. Joseph Sawyer, Litchfield, Me., arrived here a few days ago, and has been assigned to Co. I.; from what he had heard of the Maine regi ments he took the 7th for his choice. Hope otlicrs will “go and do likewise.” Our regiment has recently had a new supply of tente (V abri, and the company streets liuve been both ornamented and shaded by small pine trees which have been stuck up, making u healthy ami comfortable shade. Soft bread, dried apples, and vegetables are now Aimished the sick of the regiment, also ice, every day. Aroostook. V3-1 have known a good old man—says Bernard—who, when he heard of auy one that lmd committed some notorious offence, was wont to say within himself, “He fell to-day, so 1 may to-morrow.” ■ ^ Great War Meeting in Brunswick. The war meeting held in the Congregation al Church, Brunswick, on Wednesday evening, Was a noble gathering, and was well calculat ed to inspire the heart of the patriot, and to nerve his arm for duty. The notice was brief ami limited, consisting simply of an announce ment given out at the close of the afternoon exercises, but it was enougli to secure the ob jects arrived at. The spacious house was parked, literally packed full, and not a square foot of spare, above or below, in nave or tran sept, in pew or aisle, but contained as much of human flesh as it could hold. Hon. John H. Goodeuow o! Alfred, was called to the chair. The speakers were Rev. Dr. Hitchcock of New York. Gen. Howard, Charles F. Durant, Esq. and Hon. i’eleg W. Chandler of Boston, It was not our privilege to be present, therefore we can speak only from hearsay. The speeches were all that the names of the gifted gentlemen making them could warrant. They were fully up to the demands and necessities of- the hour. Dr. Hitchcock’s views are well known, and he did not in any way seek to disguise them. In the afternoon he had said that he did not feel concerned about the Rlavery question. What would he left of it after 900,000 mailed men had gone fortli to the field, and had had their sway, he thought could be bought very cheap—for one of Jeff. Davis' paper dollars! In view of such a consideration he thought his anti-slavery friends could afford to possess their souls in patience. Ilis speech in the evening was in harmony with this idea. The speech of Mr. Durant took every IkkIv by surprise. He is a “conservative” man—one of the original friends of the Constitutional Union party—a Bell-Everett man, and per haps it was expected that he would come all fresh from the baptismal font of the Boston Courier, and put on gloves of silk and over shoes of rubber before touching a rebel. But this feeling, if it existed at all, did not long continue, for he soon revealed his brass knuckles and his stiff cowhide boots, and the blows he dealt at the rebellion and the rebels were not only thick hut heavy. In a word, he was square-edged, flat-footed, and unmistaka ble ; and to put down this accursed rebellion he would seize hold of every means which God Almighty ha« placed within the reach of loyal men, and lie would use these means with out stint and without compunction, until the great object sought is fully secured. Mr. 1). was terribly scathing upon North ern sympathizers with secession, and handled with red-hot pincers the traitorous ingrate in Brunswick who, it is now shown, though his name has not yet transpired, has been writing letters to Lindsey, M. P., of London, urging him to push his intervention scheme, and to secure the recognition of the rebel govern ment. During the speech of General Howard, which followed that of Mr. Durant, an inci dent occurred of a most pleasing and thrilling character. Behind the speaker and in front of the pulpit, was a large shield, flunked on eacii side by tlie stars and stripes, which had re mained stationary during the entire day.— While the General was speaking, he referred to the flag, the honored emblem of our nation ality, and turning towards it, spoke of the pleasure with which he had followed it, and his determination to follow it wherever it may lead, be it to life or to deatli—to victory or to defeat. As these words were pronounced, the shield and flags, as though drawn up by some spirit power, rose slowly fif flfteen or twenty feet above the speaker's bead, and remained as though hovering over him.— “Go up!” exclaimed the one-armed hero, “that is your destiny.” Tlie effect was elec trical, and long and loud were the plaudits of that crowded assembly. We suspect tlie in visible spirit that conceived anil carried out this pleasiug tableau, all unknown to any one but itself, is a “familiar” of our old friend, Maj. C. W. King, of Brunsw ick, under w hose cure ful hand and good taste the house had been draped for the occasion. It is not the first time be has managed to tike an audience by a pleasant surprise. Of the speech of Mr. Chandler we hear only unqualified praises. He brushed aside all file constitutional and legal cobwebs which seces sion sympathy has contrived to weave around the questions of the hour, to embarrass the pa triot in the performance of his duties, and de monstrated the path of duty as plainly as though a thousand suns were beaming upon it. His speech, in many respects, was the speecli of the evening, and set free from bondage many a doubting spirit, heretofore troubled w ith constitutional scruples about the adoption of such means as bid fair to be most effectual in crashing the rebellion. The meeting closed at nearly 11 o'clock, and ail concur in saying that it is the marked event of the day in the goodly town of Brunswick. Closing Festivities at “liowdoin.” Yesterday, Thursday forenoon, in accord ance with past usage, the hails, cloisters and secret recesses of “Old Bowdoin” were laid open to the public, aud great w as the rush, of ladies and gentlemen, old and young, to make tlie most of the free exhibition. The chapel tectural beauty by Mr. Durant at the dinner table, forms the chief attraction. In the east end of this building, extending partially down the north transept, is the voluminous College Library, num!x>ring we don't know how many volumes, but presenting an array of plain and fancy backs sufficient to satisfy the hunger of a ravenous book-worm. The principal portion of the north transept is appropriated to paiutings, to specimens in geology, mineralogy and ornithology, and to j relics of a mysterious and dark age. ' Here, carefully secured, like pannels, in the ceilings, are the famous slabs exhumed from the ruins of ancient Nineveh, that wicked and rebellious city to whose inhabitants Jonah was sent on a ' missionary tour, but who, faithless to his duty, found nimself, very much against his will, pressed into the whaling business. These slabs, several in number, are of grayish stone, engraved with figures in human and other forms, of that rude kind which proves their great antiquity, and upon several of the larger ones—about 5 by H feet square—are elaborate inscriptions, in regular lines, and evidently in the very language which Jonah used when lie preached that in forty days Nineveh should be destroyed. Of course we had not the time to Iraimlate these ancient inscriptions, and there fore shall not attempt to give the reader the fruits of any such labor. Whether these scaled book- will ever be opened, and their secrets revealed to the world, is among the hiddeu things of the future; .is i yet, as we are informed, no mortal can break tiic seal tlmt bolds buck the minds of the llv : ing generation from communion with the men I of Nineveh in the dialed in which the people | of that city were accustomed to communicate with each other. OltATlON KKFOIIE THE PHI BETA KAPPA. At eleven o'clock the savans who compose the Phi Beta Kappa Society, came into the well-filled church, attended by the Germania Band, to listen to the annual oration from Hon. B. F. Thomas, of Mass., one of the “Old Bay State's” honored representatives in the American Congress. The exercises were opened with music, and prayer by Rev. Mr. Adams, of Auburn. Mr. Thomas’ oration was upon Human Pro gress, in the higher sense of that word, and so far as we were able to hear it, it was an emi nently practical discourse, well calculated to stimulate thought and action in the right di rection. Those who heard the whole of it,were unqualified in their praises, and pronounced it one of the tlnest things of the occasion. The orator Is a fine looking man, with a noble form, an open, frank countenance, an intellectual de velopement of brain, and he delivers his thoughts with energy, and with a freedom of gesticulation not always confined to definitely lai-1 down rules. His voice is rough, and is rathe unpleasant, inasmuch as the listener rail scarely avoid the conviction that his harshness of voice is distressing to the speaker himself. Perhaps he was laboring under the influence of hoarseness. Judge Thomas is of the con servative school in politics, hut his speech at the dinner table showed that, though some what scrupulous about the use of means, he is earnest and whole-souled in his devotion to the country, and in his desire to see the rebellion crushed out. In his own words, he would ten der full amnesty to the rebel masses, upon their return to allegiance, hut inexorable jus tice to their wicked leaders. From our own Correspondent. Letter from Washington. Irregular mails—Conflicting reports from the Army—President Lincoln—Our army be ing reduced—A suggestion—Gen. Jameson. Washington. D. C., Aug. 4th 1862. Eihtors of Press :—If I could receive the “Portland Press” a little more regularly, I could send you, or somebody else perhaps, some news or something else. Why it is, or where the fault is, I cannot tell, but the gener al complaint here is, that whilst other papers from Maine reach the subscribers regularly the Portland papers are very irregular. Will you stir up the delinquents, whoever they may be, Messrs. Editors, and let us have the news frign Maine as we have reasons to expect It We get hardly any War news here, except as we get it through New York or more dis tant papers. To be sure, we hear all sorts of reports. One man comes up from the “James Biver” country and tells us, that our forces there are in a very precarious condition—that they have no confidence in their commanding Generals—that the late movement of Gen. McClellan is regarded there as a perfect “Ske daddle." not euualled even bv “Bull Hun.”— that hardly ail officer of the Staff or Line can be found, but what has lost confidence entirely in Gen. McClellan since his retreat before Rich mond, and that our whole army Is in danger of being bagged by the enemy. Another re turns from the same point, and brings the in formation that our army before Richmond is in an excellent condition; that the position now occupied by our forces is impregnable; that the most implicit confidence is reposed in those in command; that if a word is uttered derogatory to Gen. McClellan, the men are ready to knock you down ; and that with such reinforcements ns are expected there at an ear ly day, Richmond must surely fall into the hands of the Government troops. Such is the character of much of the war intelligence afloat at Washington; and it is a fair specimen, I presume, of more or less that is telegraphed through the country. News bearers and news mongers occupy different stand-points, and the character of whatever they promulgate is influenced more or less by their prejudices. It is well known that the public mind is eager for news, and that the more point there can lx; given to a report or a despatch, the more pala table it is. It is to be regretted that such is the stale of things, for those who seek the truth, rather than the gratification of a mor- j bid appetite, are kept continually in suspense. Whilst we hear different expressions in re gard to the efficiency of the Heads of the De partments, and the Generals in command, we hear but one opinion expressed in regard to President Lincoln. He is understood by all as comprehending the magnitude of the crisis through which the country is now passing; as overlooking the doings of the several De- j partments; as being fully conversant with our Operations in the field; and that he is the man for the position he now occupies. Whilst such confidence is expressed in the President, not only here, but throughout the whole country, and whilst it is known that that he exercises a general supervision over our entire affairs, es pecially such as relate to the war, and that he has the decision and backbone to squarely and promptly notify delinquent and inefficient par ties, whether in the field or elsewhere, whilst, I say. that such Is the confidence reposed in “Old Abe,” it seems to me that the fault-find ing and censuring in regard to our Generals and others in authority, either military or civil, should cease. So long as they are kept in the Held, or iu the position they now occupy, by the President, they are entitled to our confi dence. I know of no safer conclusions upon which we may rest. There b one thing that we may depend upon with certainty, that if this rebellion is suppressed and the authority of our government maintained, we have got to have our army largely augmented; and if those correspondents and papers which are continu ally criticising the Secretary of War or Gene rai McClellan, would icud their energies in ! arousing the people, and inducing them to come forward and efficiently back up these j men, they would exhibit more real patriotism, to say the least, than they now do. Our army is fast Incoming decimated by sickness and other causes. Many of our best generals are obliged to leave the Held on ac count of exposure and fatigue. Gen. Jame- ; son and Geu. Berry from our own State, who have so gallantly led on our forces in many a bard-fought battle, have been obliged to re tire; and X learn from Dr. Garcelon, who has just returned from James River, that many of our surgeons arc faltering and must soon be | relieved; and if one wishes to form some idea of the condition of the “rank and tile,” let them visit the hospitals, even in this city, and they can readily imagine the large number un lit, on account of disability, for duty. Under such circumstances, the country should be alert, and every man able to bear arms should be willing to enter his country’s service. Dr. Garcelon, with whom I spent some two hours, a day or two since, represents some of our Maine regiments as being reduced to a a very low numlier. By the way, it seems to me that Gov. Washburn should keep Dr. Gar eelon in the field all of the time, looking after the sanitary condition of our Maine regiments —going from one regiment to another, and seeing that they are constantly provided with efficient medical and surgical aid. Not only tic interests and welfare of the soldier demand it, but it seems to me the honor of the State also demand it. Gen. Jameson is improving, but very slowly. He is very feeble, and bis attendant physicians say it will lie a long time lielore he can fully rally. If he continues to improve, it is hoped that he may be able to go to bis borne in Maine in the course of a week or ten days. In my next I will endaavor to furnish some local items that may be of interest to your readers. Capitol. P. S.—We are notified bore, by a dispatch, that Maine has raised her full quota of troops, and i> thus the first to respond to the call of the President. I have no doubt but that Maine willla- as prompt as any other State in res ponding to this call, but it has appeared to us Maine folks iiere, that the dispatch is a little premature,thus furnishing additional evidence j of the unreliable nature of telegraphic d:; | patches.

ORIGINAL AND SELECTED. ;.4rw ben the list of sufferers by the burn ing of the Golden Gate is published, it is <|uite reliable that our State will eotne in for a full hare in the cup of sorrow presented to the ips of the nation. 2y”We owe an apology, perhaps, to the catlers of the Press, for engrossing so much oom for the past few numbers with matters dating to Commencement at Bowdoin.

Resolved, That the national eapital is emi nently the place where treason should he in stantly denounced and punished, and that the most stringent measures should lie adopted by the proper authorities without delay to discov er the disloyal men and women who infest this District, and that they should be compelled either to establish in the most conclusive man ner their fidelity to the government or forfeit its protection.

A Novel Punishment.—A somewhat a musing occurrence took place at Port Repub lic recently. One of the men conueted with Rigby’s Battery had stolen an old yellow dress, a scarf and a small piece of new carpet. The act coming to General Milroy’s notice he sent at once for the man, and having ascer tained that there could be no mistake concern, ing his guilt, he at once concluded he would let him cultivate a still more familiar acquaint ance with female apparel, and accodingly or dered the idd dress put on the offender, the scarf tied about his neck, and the carpeting carefully laid across his arm. Thus equipped and prepared for creating a sensation, he was ordered to be marched through the camp. The mortification of the man was complete, uo more delaine daesses were stolen in his command, and the effect was most wholesome. Supreme Judicial Court. PLEAS ENTERED. State vs. Samuel J. Hazel ton.
