At the annual meeting of the Maine Histor ical Society, at Brunswick, during the current week, a letter waa presented by Hon. James W. Bradbury, from Hon. Joseph H. Williams, proposing to place forever in the custody of the Society certain important document*, now valuable for their historical associations and u*e§, which for forty years have been in the keeping of the late Hon. Reuel Williams. The letter, which ha* been entered upon the Socie ty’* records, and which was appropriately no ticed in the Society's action, sufficiently ex Dlains itself: Augusta, Aug. 4,1862. Hon. James H'. Bradbury, Dear Sir : It is now forty years since the muniment* of title of the Proprietors of the Kenueliec Purcliase from the Plymouth Colo ny, with their Imoks of records, grants, Ac., came into mv father's hands for sale-keeping, under certain votes of the said Proprietors, passed April 25, 1816 (see records, vol. 5, p. 233), and April 24, 1822 (ibid, p. 270). Having heard my father say, not many weeks before his decease, that the value of these an cient books and papers had liecome chiefly historical, and that they might now be proper ly transferred to the Maine Historical Society for safe-keeping, 1 deem ft tny duty, through ; you, to teuder to that Society a lulilluient of my father's purpose thus expressed. Among the liooks and documents are the following, viz: 1. The Original (vellum) Deed of the Colo- j ny of Plymouth to Atitipas Hoye* and ais., under date October 27th, 1601, in a metal case. 2. The Proprietors' Records, vols. 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. 3. The Original Plan of Survey of 15 Eng lish miles on each side of Kennebec River, by John North, Esq., dated Dec. 16, 1751. 4. A Day-Book and a Ledger. 5. Two volumes of Letter Books. 6. Titles traced and stated by Nathan Dane. 7. Books of Grants, viz: vol. 3, 1771 to 1798; vol. 4, 1798 to 1810; vol. 5, 1810 to 1816; vol. 6, 1816 to 1819. I will be most happy to deliver the Proprie tors' chest, containing the above-named vol umes, plan, and various documents in tiles, to j any person wh i may be authorized by the ' Maine Historical Society to receivelt, and to ' engage in writing, in behalf of the said So ciety that the records, plan and document* shall henceforth be kept by them in some safe and secure building, in the town where their own archives are kept, and that they shall lie preserved in good order and unmntilated, agreeabiy to the spirit of the trust which was reposed by the Proprietors in my father, in the several votes to which I have before re ferred. I have the honor to be, Very respectfully, your ob't serv't, Joseph II. Wili.ia.ms. m- The Argus urges that certain gentle men to whose political opinions it objects, should be required to take the “ oath.” We fear the “ oath” itself would not keep our neighbor within the lines of loyalty, unless taken, as Or- j pheus Kerr says it is at Washington, from a glass goblet in large quantities, and sufficient ly often to prevent his doing active mischief. A C haracter to be Proud of. We have heard the story of a fellow so un fortunate as to receive a long sentence to the State Prison, but who behaved so well that his friends proposed to petition for his pardon. The culprit appealed to a friend who called to see him, to intercede in his behalf; but the “friend,” perhaps lacking confidence in his reformation, put him oil' by suggesting that he had better serve out his full term, and then, on leaving, to get a certificate of good conduct from the warden and overseer. “That trow hi be a character to travel on,” replied the indignant prisoner, —“a recommendation for good behavior in the State Prison!" Without attempting any explanation of the phenomena of association of ideas, or how one thought will sometimes suggest another having but a faint family resemblance, we are con strained to acknowlege that this anecdote was brought to mind by reading the cordial en dorsement of the Advertiser, on several occa sions within a week past, from the editorial pen of the Argus! The following are samples of this kind of writing a Dana Democrat’s name across the back of a professing Kepublican, to make him pass current Monday’s Advertiser, in an article, entitled “The Sons of Temperance,” forgettieg such no ble men as Com. Foote, Gen. Franklin, Gen. Howard, of our State, and hundreds of others, said: There is not a distinguished officer in the army or navy, t hat is worth the powder it would take to blow him up—worth the pen, paper, and ink it took to write those condem natory resolutions, that is a tetotaller, or ecer was, or erer will be. The above paragraph was undoubtedly aimed, personally, at a distinguished citizen of Portland, now in the army as a General officer, and was intendedasawhip-the-devil-rouml-the stum mode of saying that he is not “worth the powder it would take to blow him up.” This, too, from a man so sensitive about the reputa tion of our military men, and so ready to de nounce, as worthy of Fort Lafayette, all who do not believe that McClellan is more than mortal. Hut the same article from w hich the above is clipped, contained the following, not “garbled,’’ but fairly revealing the spirit and animus of the whole article: Let the voters in this city and county, and throughout the State, see to it tlint not a single man of this secret organization is elected to any office, either as ileleijnte to a county or dis trict convention, or nominated for any office, except that of high private. Personally, we rare nothing about the Sons. If they can and w ill do any good, we say— “God help thembut if they will sow to the wind, let them reap the whirlwind. We would like to see a record of the less rum there lias been drank, by the world, than there would nave been drunk, if tl:eir organiza tlon had not been horn. We don't think it w’ould exceed a thimble full. The above appeared in the Advertiser Mon day morning, Aug 4th. The very next morn ing the Argus gave it the full weight of its great name, as follows: The Advertiser of yesterday, in a power fully written article, discusses the merits of the “Sons of Temperance” organization, and warns Republicans to exclude from their conventions delegates chosen by secret influences. The editor regards the Neal Dow theory of a Maine Law as a humbug. In the same number of the Argus we also find the following traces of its name written across the tiack of its yoke-fellow, to give ef fect to one of its small shells exploded at the Press: Its [the Press] position is among those so well defined by file Advertiser, whose words we reproduced yesterday. Going back one day farther, wc And in the Argus of August 4th, the following—the ex tracts from the Advertiser being the same that, for copying, called down upon our pa|**r from the Advertiser a whole column about “gar bling,” but, in the Argus, calls for no sucli complaints from its conjugial fellow-'- borer: “Tlie Advertiser has an able and conserva tive article, the tenor of which may lie gath ered from these extracts: •The Southern negroes arc not yet sufficiently in. tclligcnt to render freedom a blessing to them." "We reiseat what we have oflen said before, that when:* our victorious armies march, all the slaves are freed by a military necessity ; and w here they do not march, no proclamations offering them freedom can free them." "If the Government could send the editor of the New York Inde|*endent, Wendell Phillips, William Lloyd Garrison, Senator < handler. and such like to Koti Lafayette, to stay there until the war is over and the Union saved—all the people will say—Amen! So mote it be.' So much for the Advertiser, a paper that has for thirty-two years been sat the heati of its party in the State, and w hich was earliest in the leadership of the republican party.” The above is sufficient for our present pur poses, and to show that, “when the devil pricked his teeth with his tail"—a simile used by one of the speakers at the late commence ment dinner at Brunswick—it was not the on ly instance in which extremes have met. Our only object in this article is to show the per fect oneness of our morning cotemporaries.— The reasons why they incur the expense of keeping up two separate establishments, and ot issuing separate sheets, are to lie found, probably, in motives of policy rather than in differences in principle or purpose. We shall scarcely be suprised to wake up some morn- j ing at an early day, and find the two papers consolidated, dedicated to pro-slavery Repub- | liean Democracy and the consumption ol Old Cataw ba, w ith our loving friends. Case and Adams, as editors in chief, and a “sub-’ for each letter of the alphabet! The reader may smile at such a suggestion, but it will require but a single practical step in advance of their pres ent position, which seems to be that of “tickle my-back-ond-ril-acratch-youp-elbow”; the Ad vertiser travelling about the State,written across the back in bold letters,“Abocb,” to commend it to the Republicans of Maine as a “power ful,” “well defined,” “conservative” “paper, that has for thirty-two years been at the head of its party in the State, and which was earli- j est in the leadership of the republican party.” | Isn't that a character to be proud of? Arc- : publican paper endorsed by the Argus.’ An : honest man with a recommendation of charac ter from the ocerseer of the State Prison ! A Christian evangelist ordained by lleelzebub! Satan at the head of the church! The Argus, christianly named, “Lying,” endorsing the j truthfulness of the Advertiser! Bro. Case, we liavn't it in our heart to envy you your newly acquired “character.” Rest assured no honest man will desire to rob you of it. Action in College Boards. In Board of Trustees of Bowdotn College there have no vacancies occurred during the past year. In the Board of Overseers two va cancies have occurred, by the death of John McKeen. Esq., and the resignation of Rev. John S. C. Abbott. These vacancies were tilled, at the latenumial meeting, by the choice of Rev. J. K. Mason of Ilampden, and Joseph Titcomb, Esq., of Keunebunk, both graduates of the college. A. C. Robbins, E«q., of Brunswick, was el ected Secretary of the Board of Overseers, to till the place so long occupied by the late John McKeen, whose death was touchingly referred to by Dr. Tappan, in the opening prayer, and appropriately noticed upon the Records of the Board. Rev. Elipbalet Whittlesey, who has for the past year so acceptably tilled the Professor ship of Rhetoric and Oratory, was elected full l’rolessor in that Department. X. S. Durgin of Manchester, X. II., j has been committed to jail for the murder of Robert Smith. From our Regular Correspondent, Letter from the State Capital Sick in Maine regiments—Prompt response —Field Officers of 20th regiment—Brigad ing of new regiments—Hints to applicants —Patriotic family—Appointments. Augusta, Aug. 8,1862. Emtobs Press :—According to a letter of the 1st inst., to Governor Washburn front Dr. Garcelon, the following are the number of men belonging to Maine reginents, who are sick in camp oil the Peninsula: 2d regiment, 90; 3d regiment,00; 4thregiment, 134; 6th regiment, 61; 6thregiment, 150; 7thregiment, 104; 11th regiment, 78; and the absent sick are as fol lows: 2d regiment, 169; 3d regiment, 147; 4th regiment. 130; 5th regiment, 185, (including some on detatched duty;) 6th regiment, 137; 7th regiment, 187; lltli regiment, 293. The promptness of the State of Maine to re spond to nny call upon her by the general government, for troops, is equal at least to that of any other State. The Governor yes terday was directed by the Secretary of War, to have the militia of the State enrolled for drafting, and the mode of enrollment pointed out. The Governor immediately replied that the militia was all enrolled, companies organ ized, and were all ready for a draft, if neces sary. He was also directed to organize a fifth regiment, under the call for 300,000 volunteers, by the 15th inst. To this was answered, that the companies were already raised for a filth regiment, and could move as soon as ordered. Companies for this regiment are ordered to be at the rendezvous, at Portland, by Tuesday night next. The Governor has tendered the Colonelcy of this regiment to Lieut. Adelbert Ames of the regular army; the Lieutenant Colonelcy to Prof. J. L. Chamberlain of Bow doin College, and the Majority to ('apt. C. D. Gilmore of the Maine 7th reg’t. These gentle men will undoubtedly accept the respective positions. Col. Ames Is a graduate at West Point, and has been 1st Lieutenant of the 5th regular ar tillery, but has been iu command of the bat tery for the past year, and has done good ser vice in many battles. His appointment to the Colonelcy was recommended to the Governor by eminent military then, and by leading men :_ isj* -it.. _ _ „r • t._... .4 coolness and gallantry. At Bull’s Hun lie was shot down, hut refused to leave the field, made the men hold him- on the caisson, and con tinued to the end. In the series of battles be fore Richmond he was continually engaged, and won encomiums from his superior officers for his brave conduct and soldierly qualities. This is an appointment eminently “tit to be made.” Col. Ames is a native of Rockland. Lt. Col. Chamberlain will make a most ca pable and efficient officer. Maj. Gilmore is at home at present, on ac count of a wound received at Fair Oaks while gallantly leading on his men in the decisive charge of the 7th Regiment. He is as good as the best. To the Governor’s request that the 16th, 17th, lSUi and 10th Regiments might lie brig ailed and placed under the command of Gener al Howard, the General-in-Chief has replied that, during Gen. Howard’s disability for ac tive duty, he will be at liberty to render assist ance in raising, organizing and disciplining those Regiments; but that it is not practicable to promise permanently to brigade the four Regiments together, or to assign the General to command them. It may save some applicants for military of fices labor if I suggest some offices which are not in the gift of Departments here, particular ly of the Governor. Quartermasters, Sutlers and Hospital Stew ards are appointed by Colonels. Chaplains are elected by the Field officers and commanders of a Regiment. Nurses are appointed by the Sanitary Commission. Surgeons and Assistant Surgeons are appointed by the Governor, after having passed an examination before the Med ical Board, and Tax Collectors, Paymasters and Brigadier Generals by the President of the United States. W. D. Nye, Esq., of Fairfield, has five sons in the army, and says he would go himself if he were ten years younger. The follow ing appointments have been made by the Governor since my last. Moses J. Kelley, Liberty, Chaplain, 6th Re giment ; Benj. M. Flint, Calais, 2d Lieut., 6th Regiment ; William Buck, Harmony, Assist ant Surgeon, 6th Regt.; 1st Lieut., Adelliert Ames, U. S. A., Col., 20th Regt.; Prof. Joshua L. Chamberlain, Brunswick, Lt. Col., 20th Regt.; ('apt. C. D. Gilmore (7th Regt.,) Ban gor, Major, 20th Regt Skirmisher. [From our Regular I'orrespondent.J la tter from the Muine Seventh. HKAIKJFARTF.RS 7tII Me. VoRS. i Camp near Harrison's Landing, / Aug. 2, 1862. ) Last night stillness again prevailed. A large house and tue surroundings were burned on the other side of the river, about 4 P. M. They had served as a shelter for the enemy while getting their batteries into position. Our troops now occupy both sides of the river at Harrison’s Landing. Contrabands are made w nuv ti v 11VU1.0 nucic it 10 |>i a\ uItauir, which relieves our meu of much burden. Cav alry scouts are daily sent out to scour the ] country and keep posted on the movements of j the enemy. Strict orders have been Issued by our generals to have the men kept in camp, ready for the move at any moment. Every man is supplied w ith IK) rounds hall cartridges. The resignations of Capt- E. H. Cass, Co. H, and Lieut. John II. Fogg, Co. K, have been accepted. Aroostook. Letter from James River. Camp near Harrison Landing, ) August 1,1862. f Very early this morning, say not far from midnight, our ears were startled by the noise of cannonading from the other side of the James River. The firing came from a rebel battery planted there the day before, the guns so arranged as to bear upon our canyi. The firing lasted au hour or so without doing us any damage. The gunboats replied occasion ally. The crew of one of our gunboats land ed this afternoon on the np]>osite shore, and burnt a large dwelling house, negro quartern and all, belonging to some noted rebel. This house was the one used by the rebels to mask their guns. It afforded them an opportunity to bring up their battery of field pieces with out lieing discovered. It is high time that our army occupied both sides of the James River. So long as the enemy is allowed to hold one bauk, he can bring up his portable batteries w here he chooses, and when he pleases fire in to our transports. The health of the 7th Me. Regiment is slow ly improving. Our commissary department is better supplied with vegetables. Meu occa sionally get potatoes, onions, cabbages, dried apples and soft bread, though solt bread and cabbages are not served out its rations. Most of the regiment are still obliged to use hard bread. Whoever invented this kind ol bread should be obliged to live on it. By the way, cannot our State send out 600 recruits for our regiment? We need the men, and it will be better for them to lie in the Me. 7th,than in any new regiment; besides we have a prestige of which every recruit may well be proud. Weather continues very warm. Occasion ally we get a cool breeze from the river. 1). Congressional Nominations. At the Convention of the 2d Congressional District—new apportionment—yesterday, at Auburn. Hon. Sidney Pebiiam, of Paris, was nominated for Representative in the 38th Con gress, by 08 majority. Mr. Perliam is not a professional man, but an Oxford county Far mer, and he has honored the plough, as he will honor a seat in Congress. He is a man of sterling integrity, against whose character the breatli of scandal has never been raised, and is beloved by all who know him. In 1856 he was Speaker of the Maine House of Representatives, in 1856 he was one of the Electors at Large of President and Vice Pres ident, he was President of the late Republican State Convention that nominated Mr. Coburn, and he is now serving his second term as Clerk of the Judicial Court for his county. His election is beyond a doubt by an overwhelm ing majority—indeed, we are not aw are that he will have any organized opposition. We understand that Tuos. A. D. Fessen den, Esq., of Auburn, was nominated by the convention for the old 2d District, to serve out the unexpired term of Judge Walton, in the present Congress. Mr. Fessenden hat been a member of the State Legislature, and is now County Attorney for Androscoggin. He is a brother of Senator Fessenden of this city. ORIGINAL AND SELECTED. Monthly Report.—We have received the monthly report for July, of the names of Maine soldiers received at the rooms of the New England Relief Association, N. T. Nearly all of them left the same day they were received, a few stopping one or two days. One only, O. G. Whitton, of Portlrnd, Co. A, 12th regi meut, is reported arriving July 24th, and be ing very sick. He purports to be there now. The names of about 200 are given in the re port. Beyond the facts here stated we do not see the least public interest to be subserved by publishing the report. his brief speech at Washington on Wednesday last, Gen. Shepley said this rebel lion had been thirty years in progress. His remarks throughout were received with the most enthusiastic cheers.

But now there exists a paper ■ in this goodly State of Maine, steeped to the j very lips in treason, be-dde which the Bangor j Democrat was comparatively loyal. We re- j fer to that miserable, treasonable paper at Sa- : co, called the “Maine Democrat.’’ This week ' it is full of rampant treason, and the only won- I der is that the loyal people of Saco endure it. [ UjSbn sueli disloyal papers,] and the |meu who entertain such sentiments as it expresses, ' have the traitors of the South relied. They j thought there were enough of such doughfac es to make a divided North is case of war.— j This week, in a long article, sueli as we should j expert to find in the Richmond Examiner, f whose editor would lie arrested for treason if ! found within the Union lines, we (hid such out rageous sentiments as the following: To come now to the main point, we affirm— as we have always done—that the war now carried on by the Federal Gorernment against j the seceded States DOES NOT STAND THE TEST AS A DEMOCRATIC MEASURE. * * The war Is not a clear necessity to main tain the Constitution. * * is not a clear ne cessity to maintain the Union.” The war was begun and is carried on under the direction of those whose object is to des troy Democracy in the sense Democracy is understood by the Democratic party, and against the almost unanimous protest of the party. * * • The war as a measure to maintain the Constitution and the Union, IS A FAILURE, by the confession of many of its prominent supporters. * * • jr0r all these reasons, and more which may lie pro duced. we maintain that the war IS UNDEM OCRATIC. AND OUGHT TO BE ABAN DONED. For these reasons we have opposed, and do oppose, the war. For these reasons we have counseled, and do counsel, the De mocracy as individuals, and in convention, to OPPOSE THE WAR. There, if that be not rank treason, lifting its unholy head here in the loyal State of Maine, what, in Heaven’s name,is it? If the Govern ment is true to itself it will not permit its ef forts to be partdyzcd by traitors anyw'here, where it can get its paw upou them. A trai tor here in Maine is as bad as a traitor in South Carolina, and ought not to be tolerated. Fort Warren is a good summer residence for such. AH'- UBIWI' 111 UIV tji/iiui UJipwc UIC nui, anil traitors at the North do the same thing. Where is the difference ? To oppose the war is to oppose the Government and] its mainte nance; and he is a traitor tcho does it, whoever or wherever he may be—whether he oppose it at the South with musket in hand, or at the North by treasonable acts and words encouraging the continuance of the war, or the destruction of the Government. We do not counsel mob violence, but we do say that the Government should lay its strong hand up on treason everywhere, so that its power will be felt and respected. The British Prise Steamer Memphis. —The British steamer Memphis, captured off Charleston by the U. S.steamer Magnolia, and now at New York, is an iron steamer, four months old, anil of aliout one thousand tons burthen, American measurement. She has on board more than fifteen hundred bales of cot ton, principally Sea Island, and five hundred barrels of rosin. It is rumored among her crew that money to the amount of several hun dred thousand dollars—a part of the proceeds of her cargo of ammunition and other valua bles she carried to Charleston—is now secreted on board. She is a splendid vessel. It is sta ted that she cost $100,000. Pottery. There is near Addison Point an establishment which manufactures earthen ware, pans, pots, vessels of all styles for farm, garden and household uses. Kilns are prepar ed and burned six or eight times a year, anil wares are carried in small trading boats to all points along the shore and exchanged for cash and other merchandize. It is said to l>e a pro ductive trade; or at any rate it makes a living buisness.—(Machias Union. :r* a letter from Japan, dated May 10th, states that samples of new tea crop have come into market at Kanagawa, and everything bills fair for a brisk trade iu this line the comiug season. Some houses were shipping silk large ly, and two vessels were londing with it ami tea for England. American vessels are doing a fair share of business in the transportation between the Japanese and Chinese ports. Every thing in Japan was quiet at the date of the letter. LATEST BY EVENING PAPERS.
