Dear Pre**:—Just from the city where one
Is being perpetually reminded of our country’s
danger and the necessity for immediate earn
est effort, by the roll of drums, mustering of
recruits, and not least the “Here’s your Times,
Sir. Important, from McClellan's army” of
the smart little newsboy; the quiet every-day
appearance of a small village like this, might
tempt us to believe that what we had heard
during the past year of war,and civil conflict,
was a delusion; and that note, as ever, the
peerless heritage left by our fathers remains
honored aud sustained. Hut.no; the reality
is too apparent, the danger too imminent, for
idle dreaming.
as i mi ny my winnow ana look ont this
pleasant morning, while the hay-makers go by
scythe in hand, laughing and chatting to their
work, I can but wisli that instead, they were
hastening with gleaming mrordtt to their
country's defence; and, also,—is it womanly ?
—that every blade of grass which shall fall to
day were instead, a traitor’« hotly. Such a
fearful harvest might end a rebellion that is
perilling more precious lives and all the liber
ties which make life dear.
Situated on a beautiful stream that winds its
way gracefully along for many miles to the
broad ocean, this might be one of the pleas
antest villages of Maine, but like all towns en
gaged in lumbering, the beautiful yields to the
practical, and so houses, saw-mills and lumber
are mingled in convenient confusion.
Business being monopolized by a few, the
rest are content to labor for them, satisfied
with just enough for their bodily wants. En
terprise is not one of their virtues; yet in this
hour of the nation’s need, they liave not been
indifferent to the appeal for’“three hundred
thousand more.” More than a year ago, when
Sumpter’s guns sounded the alarm through
our land, some brave heroes sprang to the
rescue; and through all the suffering of the
past year, have nobly borne their part.
One Father and his two sons, all of the fam
ily able to shoulder a gun, left home and little
ones behind, bravely enrolling themselves
amongst the nation’s defenders. For a few i
months they stood side by side—the three pa
triots ; then the lather's conflict was ended._
Straight through the brain went the crashing
bullet, and he rests now beneath the sod. One
son was sent back to the saddened home, sick, j
and the other, the youngest, remains, hcroieal- \
ly determined to battle on.
Another (my pen trembles ns I write—for
he Is so dear to me, my noble young brother), !
for more than a year has borne the peril ami
danger of a soldier’s lire without a murmur.— j
Vi om and exhausted by fickness, he came
back for a few weeks to us; but he has gone j
again, bravely to duty, yet not as at first,
healthy and full of youthful vigor. Ifow many I
such there are and will be all over our land !
Why will not you rush in overpowering num
bers on the foe, brave, loyal sons of Maine,
and end the strife which causes such a neces
sity.
And now in this last gathering of the patri
ots of Maine, the people here have not been
found wanting. At a public meeting a wi«k
or two since, non. Mr. McCrillis, of Bangor,
and others spoke eloquently for the Union,
and at its close more than the town's quota
had enlisted. All honor to them and shame—
eternal shame to some who remain, occasional
ly giving vent to their smothered secesh feel
ings, and inwardly debating the distance and
time it would take to reach Canada. Shall it :
be written years hence, in history, that a great
nation was lost—sunk in oblivion, because
blow which might have saved them! Oh no,
let it never lie!
Nor let it ever be written that we escaped
auch a fate by the merest chance; that the
forces battling for Liberty w ere evenly match
ed with those for Slavery. Rather outnumber
them hy millions, anything that will proveto
the w orld how we prize the sacred blessing of
freedrtm. Oh, for such an uprising, when eve
ry loyal heart shall throb with high resolve,
when every loyal arm shall lie raised to strike
“foul treason low.” We cannot forget the
dreadful realities of battle, our hearts arc
bleeding with anguish for the loved who have
-already suffered martyrdom on the altar of
saeritlee; but only lierause by a crushing, over
whelming blow. now—just now, can the
terrible strife lie stayed, and our brethren, lan
guishing as exiles in the land of their birth, be
liberated, do we urge those, dear unto 11s as
our heart’s blood, to go. But tor their salces,
lor the sake of the worn and anxious army !«.•
fore Richmond, hasten, brothers, hasten to the
rescue!
And, dear lady readers of the Press, we have
not done all that we ran do. Were a Southern
army to invade our towns and cities should we
not And many ways to render aid and comfort
which we do not think of now ? Let us re
double our efforts, and in many directions.—
Like Charlotte Corday, it may not lie our mis
sion to aim the glittering steel at the heart of
the arch traitor, (well for him that he docs not
give us the opportunity) but our influence is
not unfclt in this struggle. Let no man. who
can perform a soldier’s duty, remain at home
because of office or business, when woman’s
hands can do their duties here as well. There
. are many clerks in stores, and writing in pub
lic and private offices, whose places would be
filled by loyal women, and their duties be
equally as well performed. Let us not only lie
ready to fill such vacancies, but urge those
who now occupy them to go, assuring them
of our aid, sympathies, and prayers, until they
return.
Trusting in a God of justice, let us all, men,
women, and children, put aside every interest
but tlie salvation of our country; and by act
ive, earnest endeavor, prevent the possibility of
a failure in the crisis now so rapidly hastening
upon us. Then ouce more

CLEMS’ SUMMER CURE
—AND—
Howes’ Cough Pills,
By the concurrent testimony of many sufferers, the
fact has beeu established, that lor the cure of
DIARRlHEA OB DYSENTERY
In person* of all ages, no medicine has over come to
the knowledge of the public, that so effectually does
it work and at the same time leaves the bowels iu au
active, healthy condition, a*
CLEM’S SUMMER CURE.
That for Children Catting Teeth, if troubled with
Diarrtnra or any irregularities of the bowels, all oth
er remedies are'insignificant, as compared w ith
CLEM’S SUMMER CURE.
That for Children troubled with Canker in mouth
or stomach, or mothers suffering from nursing sore
mouth, a suit- and «(>oedy cure is effected by the use of
CLEM’S SUMMER CUBE.
That for Coughs. Hoarseness and Brouchial affect
ions, there is no remedy extant that so universally
affords relief as
HOWES’ COUGH PILLS.
That for a Tightness or Wheezing iu the Chest,
Pains in the side, or a long standing Hack, the best
remedy is
HOWE’S COUGH PILLS.
That as an expectorant ami ameliorating agent in
cases of Phthisic, Whooping Cough, and Continued
Consumption, the public have already rendered their
united verdict in favor of
HOWES’ COUGH PILLS.

THIS desirable mechanical arrangement has now
been in use a sufficient length of time to chow
that it gives entire satisfaction and actually is the
more valued the more it is used.
Tins invention is a step in advance of all others in
the Spring Bed department, embracing a little more
of their excellencies. and wt happily overcoming all
their defects. It is fl“xibl™a* hair, and yet so recu
perative as to bring itself into ntace with great facili
ty. It is adapted to the invalid, the aged and old.
and all who linger in suffering and weakness. They
are made of good material warranted strong and du
rable, and not liable to get out of order.
TESTIMONIALS I
Commercial House, Portland. June 16. 1862.
Having introduced the “Anderson Spring Bed Bot
tom" into mv house, a Her trial, I pronounce it to he
an easy and healthy bed. 1 am using several kinds
of spring bed bottoms, hut consider the Anderson
fully equal it not better than the best.
X. J. DAVIS, Proprietor.
We have introduced several of the justly celebrat
ed “Anderson >piing Bed Bottom" to our sleeping
apartments. We give this spring bed bottom a decid
ed preference over any and all othere we have ever
used. Our guests speak of them in the highest terms.
We recommend their use to all hotel keepers who de
sire the comfort of their gu<**ts.
