MATTERS ABOUT TOWN.
United States Circuit Court. JUDGE WAKE PBKSIDIKG. Sept. 2o.—Justice Clifford came in and heard a few motions submitted by Counsel. He then retired leaving Judge Ware to pre side. The grand jury came in and reported, that on the complaint against Iteuben Packard of Manchester, for enticing a soldier in Co. A, ltlth regiment to desert, they had found no bill. Packard was then discharged from his recognisance. The grand jury again retired to their room to attend to a matter to be brought before them by the District Attorney. Court adjourned to Friday morniug at 10 o’clock. Municipal Court—Sept. 25. Francis ^enus, for mutilating a tree in one of the streets of our city, was lined five dollars and costa. Committed to jail for refusing to pay up. fly-Malls for Europe per steamship Bohe mian, at Quebec, for Liverpool will close at the Post Office at 12 M. to-day. cy The vane has been replaced on the spire of the 1st Parish Church, and it shines bright as gold several times tried in the fur nace. “Sozodoxt.”—This is au excellent wash for the teeth and gums, besides imparting a fragrance to the breath. Those who have tried it once will never be without it. It is for sale by Crossman & Poor. Dkatii or Lieut. Fickktt.—Ll Fickett, of Cape Elizabeth, of Co. E. 17th regiment, died in the hospital at Washington, on Wed nesday, of typhoid fever. His body has been embalmed, and will be brought home for inter ment. Ey* Tile Portland Horticultural Society will hold their Fall exhibition at the new City Hall, on Wednesday next, to coutiuue through the afternoon and evening of that day only. In the evening there will be a Promenade Concert. Music by the lVrtiiuid Baud. Postage Stamps.—We have heard some complaints because the Post Master refuses to sell jmslage stamps to lie used as currency. By reference to our telegraphic dispatches it will he seeu that these refusals are iu conso nance with orders from the Department. It is to be hoped that the new U. S. currency to take the place of coin will soon make its aji pearance here, and thus the trouble of making chauge be avoided. Masticate Yoru Food.—One of our citi aeua, residing on Ches'nut Street, came uear being strangled to death yesterday, by at tempting to swallow a piece of meet before it bad beeu properly masticated. It stuck in his throat, and it was with difficulty he could breathe. Dr. Chadwick was called, and by his efforts the piece of meat was dislodged from the man’s throat. Accident.—A little daughter of Mr. John Berry, of this city, while on her way to school yesterday afternoon, in the aet of running, fell in such a way that her slate iiencil, which site had in her dress pocket, penetrated her cloth ing, and about two inches of the pencil passed into her left, side. She was conveyed home, and Dr. Lamb called, who succeeded in ex tracting the pencil and dressed the wound, and the girl is now quite comfortable. Railroad Meeting.—The stockholders of the Androscoggin 4 Kennebec Railroad, ami those of the Penobscot 4 Kennebec liailroad, held a meeting at Watervllle yesterday for the purpose of perfecting the consolidation of the two corporations into that of the Maine Cen tral Railroad Company, by the choice of Di rectors, the adoption of by-laws, 4c. Without transacting the business for which the meeting was called, the stockholders ad journed to Tuesday, Oct. 28, to meet at the aarne place. A Spunky Little Woman.—One of Dr. Colton’s lady subjects on Wednesday night was decidedly refreshing and original. She said she had no lover, but if she had, and he would not go to the wars, she would make him go; and if he was too much of a coward to enlist she would put a bayonet through his heart. If this little lady had a little lover she might sing a little different tune. Circum stances are lrequently known to alter cases. Dr. Colton announced that lie would give one more, and most positively the very last, of his exhibitions on Friday eve of next week on his return from Bangor. Sword Presentation.—Capt. Randall and 1st Lieut. Kendall were made the surprised recipients of two splendid swords at the bar racks of Co. G, 25th Regiment, on the eve ning of Wednesday the 24th. The first pre sentation was made to the captain by Sergeant Brewer of Freeport, accompanied with a few pertiuent and fitting words. The response was brief and to the point, assuring the com pany that the sword should never be drawn save in the cause of freedom. Lieut. Buck nam of Yarmouth then presented to Lieut. Kendall a sword in a very felicitous manner. Lieut. K. replied in a manly and patriotic vein. The weapons were encased in elegant trap pings, with edge keen and temper true. May they be bravely wielded till the “last ditch” becomes the home of every skedaddling rebel. R. OtiB Trees.—The City of Portland is justly proud of the trees which adorn the streets, and strict ordinances have been passed iu re lation to tlieir preservation. These ordinances have been enforced whenever a case of muti lating or destroying a tree has come to the knowledge of the city authorities. Yesterday, in the Municipal Court, a man was fined for mutilating one of the trees in the streets. If a tree in the street is an encumbrance to the sidewalk or to the dwelling-house near it, the owner of the dwelling must make appli cation to the city authorities for Its removal, as was done in one case at the last meeting of the City Council. The Committee on Public Grounds, Ac., will then examine into the mat ter, and if the tree is really a nuisance, will order it to be removed. This Is the only course to be pursued. No person has a right to cut down any tree in the street without the per mission of the City Government. Death ok Lieut. Colley.—Lieut Charles H. Colley, Co. B, 10th Maine regiment, died in Prince Street hospital, Alexandria, on Sat urday last Lt. C. was promoted from Orderly Sergeant after the battle of Slaughter Moun tain. At this battle he received a severe wound in the left knee, taking a part of the cap off. He was carried to Washington and theuce to Alexandria. As many days had elapsed before he was received in hospital his system was too feeble to have amputation per formed. He lingered, suffering severely, until the day of his death. Lieut. Colley was one of the llrst to volun teer his services in the 1st Mains regiment and was Corporal of Co. B. Having served his time faithfully, he returned with his regiment, and in tlie formation of the 10Lh Maine, leaving his business, he assisted in raising the company to which he was attached when he was wound ed. He was a true and faithful officer, and u soldier of exemplary habits. jy. • Portland Daily Tress. FROM WASHINGTON. THE INDIAN TROUBLES. Release of Gen. Prince and others of Pope's Army. REBEL DEAD AT MANASSAS. Capture ol Schooner Defiance In attempt ing to Run the liloekade. Washington, Sept. 25. The Post Office Department lias received information from various sources that certain [tersons persistently divert postage stamps from their legitimate purpose by circulating them in packages, together with cancelled stamps, as currency. Owing to this use of stamps the Department is embarrassed in the supply for mail purposes. The public therefore are. in terested in discountenancing their circulation as currency, in all eases ol infraction of the law coining to the knowledge of the Post Office Department, the parties will he prose cuted. as it is a grave offence. This of course has no connection with the specially designat ed stamp currency. Information has lieon received from the Commissioner of Indian Affairs stating that the difficulties with the Chippewas in Minne sota lias been adjusted, but lie is afraid that tile trouble witli the Sioux in the same State, have only just commenced, and that they will be of long continuance. Gen. Prince and other officers recently cap tured flora the late army of Gen. Po|)C, have been released by the rebels, and will arrive at Annapolis this evening. Surgeon General Hammond has returned from the battle field between Manassas and Bull Run. He reports that our people have buried 8,000 rebels left dead and uuburied on tlie field by their friends, though it will be re membered that the latter held the Held after the bloody engagement. He says there are vet GOO more rebel corpses to lie interred.— These interments, under the direction of our army medical department, are in addition to those made bv tile relx‘1 annv orevious to leaving for its short-lived campaign iu Mary land, which must have been numerous. There can be little doubt therefore that the number of rebels killed lar exceeded ours in that bat tle. The Commissioner of the Internal Bureau has decided, u|xm inquiring, that a person whose occupation is that of a retail dealer.may under his license sell by the piece or original packages to a customer, but if he sell by the piece to those who sell again, he is liable as a wholesale dealer. The following regulations have been made in regard to bonded warehouses for the storage of coal oil:" The owner of any coal oil distil lery may erect, at his expense, a warehouse of materials to lie approved by the collector of the district; the said warehouse when approv ed by the collector, is hereby declared a bond ed warehouse of the United ."States, and shall be used only for storing coal oils, to lx* under , the custody of the collector or his deputies.— ; The duties on the oil stored in such ware houses shall lie paid when and as it is sold and removed from such warehouses for sale. Bear Admiral Dupont rcqiorta to the Navy Department, under date of the 18th, that on [ the Pill hist, the bark Brazilian, Acting Master • M. Gillespie commanding, captured the schoon- ' er Defiance, of Nassau, In Sable Sound, while ! attempting to run the blockade. Her cargo | consisted of salt, kerosene oil, cascarilla bars, j She also had in her cargo aliout ninety-six i boxes, containing cases of gin, which was ! placed in the spirit room of the Brazilian. The j crew of the Defiance will be sent North on | the first opportunity. They are all said to be . citizens of the United States, and engaged in i the business of running the blockade. The , captured vessel has been sent North in charge | of Acting Master Cook, of the Brazilian, with a prize crew. Lieut. A. Mitchell has been ordered to the I steamer Pocahontas. Acting Assistant Paymaster John G. L. | Strong has been ordered to the mortar tlotilla at Washington. PROM LOUISVILLE. The Race between Bragg and Buell. CAPTURE OF FEDERAL SOLDIERS. Louisville, Sept. 25. Midnight—The anniea of Buell and Bragg left Lebanon, Tenn., and Carthage respective ly, on the 21st, Buell following the arc and Bragg the chord of a circle. Our army trav elled 361 and Bragg’s 206 miles. Buell got into Northern Kentucky one day ahead of Bragg, notwithstanding the immense excess of our transportation over that of the enemy. Col. Wilyer of the l'.tth Indiana lias arrived, having been exchanged w ith the reliefs for a Lieut, and twenty-six privates. Humors creating some excitement are afloat of the movement of two divisions of Bragg’s army, but the direction or purpose cannot lie ascertained to-night. The Grinnost Zouaves of this city, and Co. B, 2.’id Pennsylvania regiment, were all cap tured by the rebels, except three, while on special service on the Virginia side of the Potomac. Return of "Pennsylvania Militia. RAILROAD COLLISION. II Aniusnt’uo, Sept 25. Gov. Curtin reached Harrisburg to-day and proceeded directly to Washington, where another meeting of the loyal Governors will be held. Transportation for over 10,000 Pennsylvania militia, returning home, has already been fur nished. Fifteen regiments arrive daily and are trans|>ortcd over the different roads to the sev eral places of destination. There has been no official information from the army. The morning freight train on the Northern Central railroad and a troop train coming North, came in collision at Parkton Station. Both engines were smashed and Shannon Horde of the U2d Ohio regiment killed. This regiment was among those taken prisoners at Harper's Ferry, and now eu route for the west «*rtl hnri!«*r.

From Fortress Monroe. Fortress Monroe, Sept. 24. The steamer Thomas Swan arrived yester day from New York with seventy seeesh pris oners, which caused the flag of truce boat Canonicus to return immediately to Aiken's Lauding. The Swan had also on board sixty Union soldiers, who had been absent from their regiment.- from sickness and other causes, under arrest, going to Washington. It is understood that all of Gen. Pope's officers now at Richmond are to come down the river next Saturday lor exchange. A flag of truce boat arrived this forenoon from Aiken’s Lauding, but brings no news. Probable additional Draft. Philadelphia, Sept. 25. The Washington Star savs that for 24 hours past it lias been stated that the President designed at once issuing a call for an additional draft that w ill increase our army iu the Held one million. We trust the rumor may prove true, though w e are not able to say so. We lielieve that in the dispersing ot the cavalry guard recently holding Ashby's Gap, Col. Price, of the 2d Pennsylvania cavalry woefully failed to accomplish what must have been the main object of the expedition, the destruction of 900 wagons of Lee's army known to have beet: at the time laying three miles behind that Gap. Court Martial. St. Louis, Sept. 25. The court martial appointed for the trial of Gen. McKinstry, assembled this forenoon. In tlie ubseuee of Gen. Harney, who 1i;l- been or dered to Washington, and who left for the East this forenoon, Gen. Graham was selected Acting President. The charges and specifica tions were called for, but the General having them iu charge could not at once lie found. After discussion of preliminary matters, the Court adjourned to meet on Friday. Canadian Items. Toronto, Sept. 25. The Provincial Fair continues to be attende< by immense numbers of the people. Tin weather i* beautiful. The Governor Genera and Suite left here to-day en route for tin Western Prarie, on a sporting excursion. Three men were killed by being run over b] ♦rains, owing to the crowd.

Central Office, Sanitary Commission, I Washington, September 20. j The Sanitary Commission, at the request ol General lialleck, Commandcr-in-Chief the ar mies of the United States, most earnestly ad vises against the practice of sending presents to soldiers, of articles w hich it is supposed will add to the convenience of their camp-life. To the knowledge of the Commission, many hun dred tons of such presents are now piled use lessly in the store houses and yards, and upon old camp grounds; while thousands have pro bably been destroyed to prevent their falling into the enemy's hands, and but a small part of all that have been received by those to whom value tu them, except as tokens of the alfee tlonate interest of their friends. For this pur pose, letters and such other small and light articles as can la1 transmitted by mail would have been much In-Iter. Larger gilts occasion serious practical mischief-—men and officers being naturally adverse to throwing them away—they add to the incumbrances, which are a chiel cause of the excessive fatigue, and thus of the sickness of the soldier. Volun teers most universally, until they learn I letter by dear experience, undertake to carry an excessive amount of clothing. To this cause, and to the excessive baggage of their officers, some of the severest losses of the Union for ces iu the present war are attributed by the highest military authority. Hut even when successful in battle, the attempt to secure com fort by the possession of an unusual amount of clothing is nearly always frustrated; the heaviest knapsack being thrown away tin- lirst hard, long continued march, while the light one is retained, and the long and heavily ladcu ed wagon train being cut oil', when the light and short one is protected. Similar olist-rvutions apply to regimental hospitals. The hospital of a regiment in the Held should la- supplied with nothing hut (tie ls-st necessities lor the temporary treatment ol the sick, who in all serious cases are removed as fast as possible to general hospstais, where the supplies of the regiment are not available. An excessive amount of regimental hospital stores and con veniences is a cruelty to the sick and wounded; for it occasions the frequent detention and separation from the regiment of the few arti eles essential to the usefulness of the surgeon. The Commission has from the lirst protested against a common error of surgeons in this respect as well as against the greater evil of the common attempt of the volunteer soldiers Ui carry into the Held too many of the means of comfort to which they are habituated in civil life. In compliance with the request of Wen. Ilallerk, this appeal is addressed to those hv whose mistaken kindness Imfli These evils are believed to have been aggravated and sus tain eel. Fitun. Law Olmsted, Gen’l Sec’y. The President's Proclaiuntion. The wisdom of the step taken—we refer at present to that clause in the doc ument which declacrs free the slaves of rebel States alter the 1st of January—is unquestionable; its necesi ty, indisputable. It has been declared time and again by President Lincoln that as soon as this step became a necessity, he should adopt it. Its adoption now is not a confession that the military means of suppressing the great rebellion have proved a failure: but sim ply that there is a point at which any other legitimate appliances that can lie called in, shall also be availed of. Slavery is an element of strength to the rebels if left untouched; it will assuredly prove an elenent of weakness— it may be of total destruction—to them and their cause, when we make such use of it and its victims as lies in our power. From now till the 1st of January—the day when this procla mation will take effect—is little over three months. What may happen between now and then, in the progress of the w ar, it is hard to say. We earnestly hope, however, that by that time, tile rebellion will be put down by military hand, and that the terrible element ot slave insurrection may not lie invoked. If, by that day, the rebel army lie overthrow n, and their Capital captured; and, if the slavehold ing rebels still prove malignant, irrepressible, and, as in the Soutewest. disorganizes and marauders, then let that which Vice-President Stephens called the corner-stone of the South ern Confederacy lie knocked from under il, and see w hether the whole tiibyie of rebellion w ill not necessarily tumble to tile ground. A Scottish advocate, who in his broad Scotch pronounced the word water, irntter, being asked in court by the Chancellor if lie spelled water with two t's, replied, "No, my lord, but I spell manners with two u’s.” The King of Portugal w ill lie married to his new Queen, the Italian princess, by proxy, the Marquis of Louie acting in that ca pacity. The young Queen has repudiated the name of I’ia, bestowed upon her by her god father, the Pope I’ius IX. 3&~ The Springfield (III.) Journal says that complete returns of the recent election ir Daeetah Territory elect Gov. William Jayne delegate to Congress, instead of Gen. Todd as heretofore reported. Gov. Jayne’s inajoritj is about 150. Tiie Regular Army.—The Tegular ami) now nural>ers 40,000 men. and when all tin new regiments are filled, there will be nearl) 45,000 regulars in the service. Of these near ly 25,000 will be infantry and the remaindei artillery and cavalry. One artillery and om cavalry regiment are in course of organize tion. Drawback in Favor of Manufac turf.s.—Commissioner Boutwell has address ed a letter to a manufacturer of New York stating that a drawback will be allowed u|kh taxable manufactured goods exported during this month. Proof must be furnished that th< articles exported have paid a duty. Regula tions on the subject will be issued immediate Jy. ' It is singular, says a correspondent o the New York Commercial, that so many o the traitor generals should wear the familial sobriquet of Johnson. Not to name others there is “ Rocky Mountain ” Johnson, “ Fin ’ Johnson, ** Jo.” Johnson, “Sid.” Johnson “ Wash.” Johnson—all ot whom have tigurei as rebel commanders. To these may now 1h added Col. Bradley Johnson—or, as he is fa milliarly termed, “ Brad.” Johnson, who pilot ed the rebels tuto^laryland. 22P" It appears that Gen. Thomas Francis I Meagher w as not wounded, but his horse fell on him during the battle, stunning him for a | while, necessitating Ins removal from the Held. ' The Confederacy gained some 40,00(5 men by the conscription Act in North Carolina alone, and the examining physicians reported more than three-fourths of them as unfit for military duty. Disc’ll a itoK of Transpouts.—The Acting Quartermaster at Alexandria has within the past week discharged over two hundred ves sels, the greater portion of which have been in the employ of government since the army of tlie Potomac took the water route to Rich mond. Prize Money.—The New York Commer cial figures up $20,000,000 in prize money for sailors in our service—on the Mississippi river, thirty small craft, worth not far from $;i00,000 —Confederate armed vessels, captured, over $3,000,000—the rest mainly from vessels uuder the British flag. Speaking of the President’s proclama tion, the Springfield Republican says:—"In Massachusetts we think the conservative move ment has received a ‘stunner.’ When it ‘comes to,’ we shall see what it will do. The procla mation has taken away a good deal of its cap ital, and it may tifiuk best to give up the ghost altogether, but we guess not.” Coffee was selling in Richmond a few days since at $3 50 per lb; tea at $10; sugar 00c, a $1; salt 00c per quart; molasses $7 per gallon; butter$l; potatoes $1 per peck; treas ury notes 100 per cent, premium; calico $1 50 per yard; hoop skirts $15 a pair; paper of pins $1 50; spool cotton 50e; no ribbons to be obtained; gaiters 12 a $15 iier pair. The New Senator from Oregon.—The newly elected Senator from Oregon, Beiy. F. Harding, was formerly United States District Attorney for the Territory, and the first Speak er-of the House in the Oregon Legislature.— He is about forty years of age, a lawyer by profession, and was a Douglas democrat in 1S00. Artemas Warhov Enlistments. ‘Young man, inlist right oil'. Air you afeared it ’ill spile your beauty?

Zff ' A letter in the New York Commercial says: It is understood that as soon as the offi cial reports have been received by the l’resi dent,he w ill promote a large number ol those who ought so bravely at South Mountain and Antictam, including a number of meritorious “enlisted men.” This can but stimulate re cruiting, and incite those who carry muskets to exchange them for swords, by proving their right to command by bravery in the field. A Strange Circumstance.—Mr. Josiah Conant. of Gardiner, lost a cow last week by death, and upon examination a twelve-penny nail, three inches and a quarter in length, was found in her heart. It entered at one side and worked its way through, so that it came out on the opposite side, making a hole through the heart larger than a man’s finger. The cow had been well through the summer, and had given a good quantity of milk, until six or seven days before she died, and the only symp toms of disease were loss of appetite and weakness of the limbs.—[Worcester Spy. ZJT' I'* this age of Minic rifles, telescopic sights and sharp-shooters, it will not do lor our soldiers to w ear red. All aim which might be Uncci-fnin nt ercen blue (tree or tienlrnl lint, becomes fearfully exact when it is brought to boar on a flaming red target. The fate of those two floe, daring regiments, the New Y'ork 5th (or lluryca Zouaves) and the Brook lyn 14th, of which red is the distinctive color, proves this, hack of these regiments is re ported to have lost far more than its propor tion of men in every active engagement.— About three-fourths of the casualties among them are said to be in the red-trowsered leg. A Restless General.—Maj. Gen. O. M. Mitchell, the new Commander, has arrived at Port Royal in his new Department. On the 18th iust-, he addressed the 48th New Y'ork Regiment at Fort Pulaski. In his address, he said, “ 1 am very restless. I do not know how to be still.” Speaking of his instructions, he said, “ 1 And that those instructions permit me to do pretty much as I please, and I shall en deavor to do the best 1 can—X assure you of this—that 1 will omit no opportunity of giving active employment.” Gen. Ilooker declared with great free dom that the Proclamation was issued too late rather than too early; that the time had fully arrived when it was impossible to prosecute the war vigorously aud with a certainty of suc cess without it. Prominent West Virginians now in the city say that the President's X’roc lamation of Ire. Join will lie heartily endorsed by a majority of the loyal |>eople of their State this fall. The public sentiment of Western Virginia has undergone a radical change, they say, since Garble was elected to the Senate. The rebels here are greatly frightened by the appearance of the President's proclamation. Wolf had been cried so many times idly, that they didn't believe the real wolf would ever come. He is not welcome.—| Washington correspondence of the New York Tribune. The Crops in Iowa.—The yield of wheat is estimated at 20,000,000 bushels this year, being 1,750,000 bushels more than the crop of 1881. There have beeu 1,225,000 acres culti vated this season in corn, which will yield 70.250,000 bushels,or an excess over the crop of last year of 10,000,'>00 bushels; oats will reach 10,000,000 bushels; hay 1,000,000 tons; sorghum 3,000,000 gallons, and putut<ies double last year’s quantity. The State will be able to export this year 175,000 cattle and 1100,000 hogs.

There has been no in fluential Democratic paper in New York since the demise of the traitorous Day Book and News, and perhaps the World is to supply the deficiency.

THE market has been flooded for years with differ ent articles called Hair Dyes, which Lave never satisfied the expectations of purchasers. The nk PLi a ultra has been reached at last in TODD'S 1IAIK DYE, and the article has given entire satis faction to every person who has u**si it. It contains no injurious ingredients, and gives the hair a tieauti ful rich brown or black color. Directions for using j —which are very simple—accompany each Inittle. One superiority of Todd’s Eux Solis Hair Dye over all others is, you do not have to cleanse the hair or wash it before or after using the dye, aud there is but one kiud to lx- used, aud that can he put on tin* same as oil atid wafer, without any trouble, ittilik.i all oth er dyes that have two or three differeut kinds to be applied every time used. This dye is peculiarly adapted for coloring ladies’ hair, because you do not have to wash out the dye after putting it on. Unlike all other dyes, it w ill color long hair, which other dyes cannot do. Give this new article a trial, as we kuow you will use no other after ouce using this. tST For sale only at TODD’S HAIR-DRESSING ROOMS, No. 74 Middle, comer of Exchange Street. septlfltf International Bunk. fITHK Annual Meeting of the Stockholders of the X International Bank will be held at their Hank ing House, on Monday, Oct. 6th, at 10 o'clock A.
