Contribution of Ancient Document* to the
Maine Historical Society.
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.

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

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

Last night stillness again prevailed. A large
house and tue surroundings were burned on

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.

Drowned.—A young man named Wilson,
recently from Portland, employed in a shoe
shop at Locke's Mills, was drowned in South
Pond, at Greenwood, on Sunday last, while
bathing. lit was not an ex|iert sw immer, and
seeing what he supposed to 1st a roex near the
surface, at a short distance from the shore, he
made for it, but on reaching it, it proved to be
a log, one end buoyed up by the water and the
other resting on the bottom. Attempting to
rest upon it, it sunk, anti becoming strangled,
he was drowned before assistance could be j
rendered. He was an orphan, and had neither
brother or sister.—[Paris -Democrat.
8y*The Boston Herald thinks that the \
evacuation of Richmond is only a feint, and
that while a few troops are left to decoy our
army, the mass of the Confederate troops are
to lie thrown upon Pope oradvance by a forced J
march on Washington.
The Herald further says that our Govern
ment have probably anticipated this, and placed
a sufficient number of transports at General ;
McClellan's disposal to transport his army, via
the Potomac, to such a point as w ill intercept
the Confederate army, should this advance
from Richmond be made. “.Vous Ferrous.”

-Wanted—the lid of a box on the ear.—
The handle of the cup of affliction. The cow
that gave the milk of loving kindness. A leaf
of the balm of consolation. A few hairs from j
the tale of woe.
Rnnk Treason.
Last year the people of Bangor very quietly
suppressed the publication of an infamous
treasonable paper in that city, because it op
posed the war. 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.
