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.
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.

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

as currency, in all eases ol infraction of the
law coining to the knowledge of the Post
Office Department, the parties will he prose

Card from the Sanitary Commission.
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.

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 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.

to many of its readers; but report now has it
that the proprietorship and control have been
so far changed as to make it a Seymour, anti
administration paper. There has been no in
fluential Democratic paper in New York since
the demise of the traitorous Day Book and

deficiency. It has found it an up-hill business
to maintain itself as a Republican pa|>er against

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.
