hatters about town.
VT The Grand Jury just retired, having brought in a bill against George Harris, aud Flora, his wife, for keeping a house of ill fame, the guilty pair skedaddled before a warrant could be issued, upon which Deputy Marshal Heald set off in pursuit on Wednesday morn ing, rapturing them at Portsmouth, and bring ing them to town the same day. Touching Simplicity.—During the preva lence of the thunder storm on Tuesday eve ning, a little fellow, whose brow had been fan ned by the zephyrs of but four summers, up on being asked why he nestled so close to his mother, replied : “ If you get dead, I want to get dead too.” ityThe dwellers In, about and around Fore and Commercial streets can “ stay their stom achs ” at the hungry hour of 11 A. M., by an onslaught upon the flesh bivalves of H. Free man, the well known caterer to the public ap* petite, corner Fore Street and Portland Pier' Anniversary o( V. C. A. A P. C. The members of this “antique” association celebrated their seventeenth anniversary on Tuesday last, at Cape Elizabeth “Two Lights.’’ The following gentlemen have l>ecn unani mously elected officers for the ensuing year: John L. Shaw, Commissary. Geo. B. Eaton, P. C. J. A. Merrill, Treasurer. H. P. Lord, Secretary. Member* present—L. B. Smith, F. E. Pray, Henry S. Edwards, C. C. Tolman, W. P. Chase Henry Robinson, G. L. Pray, S. C.-Fernald, and C. Trowbridge. Invited Guests—Dr. Ulsley, S. R. Leavitt, Esq., G. Cloyes, Esq., and Col. Frank L. Jones. The day chosen happened to be of that mis ty, foggy character, so generally antagonistic to all out door fun; but yet, notwithstanding the rain, and all its concomitant embarrass ments, the general good will aud fellowship of the party rose in the scale, in proportion as the “rains descended, and the floods came.” Upon the grassy sward just below the “Bell House,” stood the noble tent of the party, from whose peaks gloriously floated the Flag of our Union, while from another point the modest and unobtrusive “private signal” of the asociation unrolled its gorgeously painted wings to the breeze. W hue the worthy commissary and his aids were preparing that most delectable of all dish es, a cod-tlsh chowder, the rest of the party were sharpening up their appetites by a gip sey dance upon the green, and the merry pat tering of feet, beat in cadence to the “gay old Addle,” as it ground out “Money Musk,”— “Road to Boston,” and “Fisher’s Hornpipe.” Dancing ended, the party commenced a vocal concert by singing “America,” which was speedily followed by pieces of a sentimental and patriotic character, the whole being wound up by “hanging JelTDavis toa sour apple tree.’’ Grand tableaux were now presented to the admiring spectators, among which we may no tice the following: The Gladiators — The Baggage Wagon—The Yankee Volunteer— The Elephant—The Man with a Nose, &c.— Mirth and hilarity being now the order of the day, happiness beamed from every eye. And while the jocund jc#t went round Our hearts were gladdened by the sound of “Dinner’s ready — to the charge—to the charge.” Skirmishers never rsllied on the re serve with more alacrity than did we around that well-spread table, loaded as it was with food of the most recherche nature. It was here the hearts of aJl Aowed out one townrd another, and as each looked forward to the next anniversary day, so did the retrospective view of the past suggest tliat possibly, upon Its coming, there might be found missing from the band others,—doing battle in the Aeld by the side of their now absent comrades. The absent were spoken of with warmth and at tachment, while the dead were not forgotten. “Auld Lang Syne” was now sung by Messrs. S. and F., and as the touching strains died away, many a pearl of tribute to past associa tions could be seen stealing its way over the manly cheek. Dinner having been partaken of, a party was formed for “rock fishing,” and soon many a “cunner” flapped his tail in welcome to the party. A<Dourning from this, foot-ball, wrest ling, and other manly games were indulged in, until approaching evening warned ns of the necessity of a return to town. Bidding adieu to the party, who remained in camp through yesterday, we rode in on our silent way, very much impressed by the cordial and hospitable treatment we had experienced at the bands of the gentlemen in whose society we luid spent one of the most agreeable days of our life. I. O. or O. F.—The funeral of the late E. D. Tewksbury was attended yesteiday afternoon, by 55 members of Ancient Brothers Lodge, No. 4. tr The following gentlemen were drawn as extra Traverse Jurors for the Supreme Ju dicial Court, now in session, within and for the County of Cumberland; William B. Stevens and Eben D. Choate. Igy-Republican caucuses will be held in the different wards tills evening. See notice. We respectfully request the caucus officers to report the names of delegates chosen, to tills office, as soon after the adjournment as f*nnvpnii*nl. Mails for Europe via Quebec, per steam ship Nova Scotia, close at 12 M., to-morrow. • Confederate Shinplasters.—We saw a man about town yesterday selling confederate shinplasters, at the rate of five cents for a ten dollar note. Upon inquiry, he admitted they were exact fac-similes, in other words, count erfeits. If there is anything in creation less valuable than a counterfeit sliinplaster of the Confederate States, we should like to see it. City Bounties.—At a special meeting of the City Council last evening, the following order was passed, viz: Ordered, That so much of the order relat ing to bounties, passed July 2it, 1862,as relates to paying bounties to those who enlist in old regiments, be continued in force to and iuclud, ing Monday, August 11,1862; it being under stood that said enlistments are not to exceed the quota of Portland. Municipal Court—August T. BEFORE HIS HONOR JUDGE LANE. Charles Dickson, for drunkeness and dis turbance, was fined $3,00 and costs of court. Personal. Gen. J. G. Totten and Prof. Baclie of the United States Topographical Corps, accompanied by Mrs. Baclie aud J. T. Hoover,Esq., of Washington .arrived in this city last evening, and stopped at the Revere House. The object of their visit is to inspect the forti fications in Boston harbor, which being accom plished they will proceed to Portland and ex amine the forts at that post. [Boston Jour nal. The Eighteenth. Matters are progress ing favorably at Camp Roberts. The soldiers are fast getting located, aud are begiuing to feel satisfied with their new residences. Three or four of the companies are uniformed and most of them have been examined and accep ted. We understand that the Governor has accepted Capt. Crossman’s and Capt. Atwell's companies, much to the satisfaction of the cit izens of Bangor and Orono. It is reported that the Hancock and Aroostook soldiers will Ue formed into one company, which will make the regiment full.—[Bangor Whig. TELEGRAPHIC TO THE PORTLAND DAILY PRESS. Activity of McClellan’s Army. Capture of Mitivem Hill. The Army will not Protect Rebel Property. Murder of Uencral McCook. Severe Skirmishes in the West. Arrival of Disabled Soldiers. Stampede from Baltimore. • Prom Washington. Washington, August 7. Capt. Gansevort of the Adriondack, has in formed the Navy Department of facts attending the recent pursuit by him of steamer Herald, represented by Nassau pa]>ers to be a British vessel. This pretence afforded an opportunity for expressing indignation against the alleged outrage by this American officer, from whose statement it appears that the Herald had been running from Nassau to Charleston with war like supplies, and was returning to Nassau with cotton. She was commanded by a man named Coxetter, who was formerly Captain of the privateer Jeff. Davis. The chase however was not continued within the British jurisdic tion. The statement additional confirms the fact that the British flag is systematically used to advance secession interests. Numerous applications have been made for passes to the army of the Potomac, but they are invariably refused. It is the request of Gen. McClellan that private visitors be ex cluded from his lines. All the sick are to be removed hence, therefore the friends of many patients cannot urge the necessity of their presence there for nursing purposes. Passes and permits within other military lines are not so freely given as heretofore, as it is known there have been abuses of privi lege, traders having been tempted by large profits to smuggle salt and other necessary supplies into the rebel markets. Murder or lien. McCook. CmcisrxATTi, August 7. A dispatch to tiie Commercial from Deehera, Tenn , says Gen. Robert McCook was murder ed while riding in an ambulance day before yesterday on advance of his brigade. Nashville, August 7. Gen. Robert McCook was shot by a party of guerillas near Salem, Ala., yesterday, while riding toward Winchester, Tenn., sick in an ambulance. His remains reached here this evening. Capt. Urooks was raptured. Our force burned the house of the rebels who led them into this Ambuscade. Guerilla Baida. Loi-isvillk, Kv., August 7. The Journal publishes a rumor of Morgan’s advance into Kentucky, and his capture of Burksville. He expresses the determination to march to the banks of the Ohio river. Military circles here disbelieve the whole story. St. Joseph, August 5. A gentleman from Leavenworth rc|>orta that guerilla leader Guantrell seized a descending steamer on Sunday evening aud crossed 1500 men to this side of the river. The military authorities of Fort Leavenworth, hearing of the capture and not knowing Guantrcll's strength, sent 1U0 men down to Intercept him all of whom he captured ami marched on, cap turing Liberty. Col. Pennlck had previously evacuated that place, escaping with his com mand. An additional force ol four companies with a battery of artillery was despatched from Fort la-avenworth, yesterday morning to operate against Guantrell. Cairo, August 7. The ram Mingo, from Helena, reports that on Saturday, a scouting party of seventy-live federals were surprised by 300 of niiidinan’s rebels and cut them up badly, only 20 having saved themselves. Forty of JetT. Thompson’s men were cap tured while attempting to crass the river near the town of Austin. The recent publication of Gen. Pillow’s let ter to his brother in regard to the slaves of the former, renders interesting the fact that Gen. Curtis has freed all the negroes in ques tion, 275 in number. Pillow has three planta tions near Helena, on which all the movable pro|>erty was confiscated. Gen. Curtis has freed, at Helena about 3000 slaves, chiefly those who worked on forte Pil low and Donelsou. From Fortress Monroe. Fortress Monroe, August 0. The 3000 rebel prisoners from Fort Warren and Fort Delaware, went up the river front Harrison's Lauding night before last. A flag of truce boat accompanied them, which re turned last evening, and reports that the change is being made satisfactorily, and that the same number of Union prisoners from Richmond may be expected down the river to day or tomorrow, and that the requirements of tiie federal government in regard to the ex change. has been strictly complied with, which is understood to mean the release of Colonel Corcoran and other Union otlicers. The reconnoisance of Monday night has re sulted Terr favorably. Our troops drove in the reliel pickets early yesterday morning,and the tight immediately commenced, w Inch last ed between 2 and 3 hours, anil resulted in the federals taking possession of Malvern Hill, which they now occupy with sufficient force to hold, and carry on other plans which are in connection with this very imiiortant move. The public no doubt will be fully satisfied with the activity of the army of the Potomac for n. It*u’ ilavd t<> rnin#> The fighting and capture of Malvern Hill was done by artillery, anti our loss was small, only 20 killed and wounded. The re I tel loss is much greater; 100 cavalry men, horses and equipage complete were captured, and one small battery. We may expect this move to be followed up with the greatest activity, as it is considered a move of much importance. Col. Gamble of the 8th Illinois, is among the wounded. Other names of killed and w ound ed we have not yet beeu able to obtain. The mail steamers to Harrison’s Landing are convoyed by gunboat*. A list of the sick and wounded may be ex pected to-morrow from the returned Richmond prisoners. From the Army of the Potomac. Head Quarters, Army Potomac, I August 0, 1802. J Three thousand exchanged prisoners arriv ed here yesterday afternoon from Richmond. Those belonging to this army and fit to do du ty, were sent to their regiments and the rest leave for the North to-day. No officers are among them. There is no truth in the report that this ar my is used to protect rebel property, a* re ported in the case of Hill. During the two days battle of Malvern Hill, from 800 to 1000 wounded Union men had wounds dressed at this house, the ladies freely tearing up their sheets and pillow cases for bandages. While the army was passing a guard was posted to protect the women and children. The horses and cattle are grazed on his l'ann and his ne groes are working upon our fortifications. All applications for the return of these slaves have been refused. From the West. St. Louis, August 7. Brig. Gen. Davidson assumed command of St. Louis district to-day. Col. Merrill, former ly couunandaut of this District, has been com missioned Brig. General and will leave for Northern Missouri this evening, where he w ill direct operations against the guerillas. At a meeting ol merchants at the Union Ex change this noon, resolutions were passed dosing the business houses at four 1‘. M. for the purpose of drilling and organizing the loyal citizens lor military service, and request ing the proper authorities to cause a suspen sion of business throughout the city after that hour for like purposes. Cbicaoo, August 7. 10 P. M.—There is no prospect ol getting a report of the Golden Gate disaster to-night. The line is down between Overland city and Fort Laramie. Buffalo, August 7. The California line is down west ot Julea burg. There is no prospect of getting any thing through to-night. There is a great storm progressing west. A Skirmish. Cairo, August 7. A skirmish took place yesterday near Point Pleasant, Mo., between the citizens ami State troops, in which it is reported several were killed on both sides. It seems that the citizens hound themselves together to resist the enrol ment act. Troops were sent from New Mad rid to enforce the law. New York Items. New York, August 7. Capt. D. Ilibhart of Conn., and Ezra Carter of 2d N. II. regiment, died here to-day. The Express reports Gen. Burnside’s divi sion at Aquia Creek. Arrival of Sick and Wounded. Philadelphia, August 7.

Abbott's History of the War.— We have seen some specimen pages and illustra tions of the history of the Civil Warm America, now in preparation, which promises to be a magnificent work. The author is John S. C. Abbott, whose I.ife of Napoleon, and kindred works, have given him a high rank as a histor ical writer and brilliant skctcher of military characters. Few writers, in this country, have been so generally popular in the delineation of stirring scenes and stormy times, and it is safe to predict that his history of the great rebel lion will be as popular as anything he has written. The work is to be published in two volumes, royal octavo, fine paper and type, and is to be splendidly illustrated with fine steel engrav ings of our leading generals and statesmen, new designs by Darley and other of the best artists, and maps and diagrams by Lossing A Bossett, and beautifully bound in embossed morocco. A heavy expense is already incur red for illustrations. The portraits we have seen of Gens. Scott, McClellan, Butler, Sigcl, Com. Foote, and others, are exceedingly fine. The work is sold only by subscription, and we notice among the subscribers some of the leading historians and scholars of the country: Everett, Jared Sparks, Sumner, O. W. Holmes, Ae., Ac. An agent is now canvassing the city, and all our citizens will have an opportu nity to subscribe. We notice among the subscribers the names of Mayor Thomas, Gen. Shcpley, Judge Davis, Attorney General Drummond, Hon. J. B. Brown, S. E. Spring, Esq., John Lynch, Esq., Mr. Adams of the Ar gus and Mr. Case of the Advertiser. The first volume will be delivered during the current year, and the other after the close of the war. Henry Bill of Norwich, Ct., and Garden Bill or Springfield, are the publishers. Fall and Winter Freights. The ship owners and ship builders of Maine are deeply interested (in the absence of cotton freights) in the demand for grain and flour in Europe; and the last accounts from that quar ter show that England and France must again look to America for a large portion of their supplies. Russia, it is said, will export less than usual, and France will have to import again, in place of exporting; for in 1859 they supplied England with 92 per cent, of all the flour, and 88 1-2 iier cent, of all the wheat Im ported into Great Britain. The London Star, to show how much Great Britain now dej>ends upon America for corn as well as cotton, states that for what might be called the agricultural year,extending from the first of September to the first of June, the United States scut to Great Britain 1,731,628 quarters of wheat, and all other countries 3,187,718; of flour, the U. S. sent 3,135,886 cwt., all other countries 1,100,770 cwt.; of maize or Indian corn the U. S. sent 1,362,256 quarters, all other countries 919,437.

Mosquito Oh..—In the work entitled ‘•Sal mon Fishing in Canada," edited by Col. Sir James E. Alexander, the following recipe is givcu for the preparation of a fly oil, which is used in the woods of Canada to keep of those pests of the forest—black flies and mosqui toes: Take equal portions of castor and line al mond oil, and scent the same thoroughly with essence of pennyroyal and spirits of camphor. This preparation may be carried in a small bottle, and applied frequently to the exposed parts of the head and face or hands. A Gassy Wedding,—There is a spouting well in Saliueville, Ohio, up which the gas rushes with great violence. A romantic cou ple. a few eranings since, invited their friends and a clergyman to the vicinity of the well, set tire to the spouting jet of gas, and by the light of the till pillar of roaring flame, were united in marriage. A Significant Fact. The only flag of any natioh that has attempted to run the blockade, has I teen that of England. This speaks volu mes for the hypocritical character of a portion of the pvblie sentiment of Great Britain, and ado of the sincere neutrality of its Govern ment;; especially when the undisguised sympa thy with the rebellion in the Provinces is ta ken into account. It is to be feared that John Hull's policy is not that “best policy” whose largest element is honesty; but rather of that other type, wherein interest sules.—| Boston Transcript. -A sixty-nine poumler shell hurst near an Irishman in one of the trenches.

His cane was coasid ^Q^^ered almost hopeless. The boy was put an der the care of Dr. B.. and after great pa tience and perseverance, with his electrical treatment and with other curative*, he was able to lift his age nda. when it wan discovered that a false membrane had formed and covered the entire eyes. This was removed by Dr. Boynton, and the boy’s eve-sight is now entirely restored, and his eyes stronger than ev er before. This should be known to all persons who are similarly afflicted. Although 1 understand that the Doctor has for many yean, in his operations on these delicate organs—the eye and ear, met with em inent success, he has not deemed it necessary to keep blazing before the public his surgical skill in this par ticular part of his profession, but has been silently performing cures, many of them if a remarkable character.” Certificates from numerous of his patients testify to Ids successful operations, all of which may be seen at his office.
