Thomas Taylor, for assault anil battery on
<1 miles Nelson, was lined (10 ami costs, which
he )iaid and was discharged. It appeared that
Taylor had a bill against Nelson which tile

this was no way to collect a bill.

The Horticultural Exhibition.
The annual Fall Exhibition of the Portland
Horticultural Society opened yesterday at the
new City Hall. The display was the largest
and handsomest ever seen in the State. The
gardens and green houses and orchards in this
city and vicinity poured out their fruits and
flowers and vegetables in great abundance,
which was tastefully arranged in the hall and
ante rooms, presenting an appearance attrac
tive to the eye and tempting to the taste.
There were near 300 varieties of pears ex
hibited. Warren Sparrow, Es<|., presented 80
varieties, some of which were never before
fruited in this State, and not until within a
year in this country. Mrs. Henry Dailey pre
sented twenty-five varieties—splendid fruit.
Capt. J. B. Coyle presented twenty-five varie
ties, Samuel Rolf sixteen, Geo. Warren seven
teen, N. Wood fifteen, George Jewett nine,
Byron (J reenough nine, P. Duffy, gardener to
Mrs. J. S. Little eight; T. C. Hersey six, It.
Breed, of Lynn. Mass., seven—large and splen
did fruit—two iu a cluster weighed 30 ounces;
N. A. Foster five, John Russell six, J. Jewett
five, W. Willis four, Joseph Walker four, Rob
ert Follensbee three, Dr. Win. Wood four, J.
Doherty four, S. C. Rand two, H. N. Jose
three, besides a large number of single entries.
The committee on fruit must have had a task
in deciding upon the merits of the various en
tries of pears, such was the general splendid
appearance of the fruit.
There were about 100 varieties of apples
presented. Edwin Coburn, of Gorbam, pre
sented twenty-nine varieties of splendid graft
ed fruit, raised on trees that were considered
worthless. S. F. Perley, of Naples, offered
J. B. Coyle twenty-one. J. W. Adams, Mrs.
Dunham, Abner Lowell, J. D. Kidder and oth
ers also presented handsome specimens ol this
fruit. The apples looked better than any we
have ever before seen at our exhibitions.
The display of grapes was large, and em
braced all the various kinds new cultivated.
There were some 60 or 70 varieties, offered
by T. C. llersey, J. B. Coyle, Joseph Hor,
J, H. Coburn, Win. Willis, Joseph Walker, N.
A. Foster, John Bell, Miss Gardiner, J. W.
Adams, S. L. Goodale, N. Wood, Mrs. Altord
Dyer, Dr Win. Wood and Mrs. Henry Bailey.
The latter offered three specimens of native
grapes, very handsome in appearance. The
varieties entered show that the cultivation of
the grape, in this vicinity, has vastly improved
within a few years.
We noticed hut t,fo entries of poaches, and
those were large and handsome fruit—these
were three varieties from A. Pickard, gardener
to John M. Wood, and two from John Bell.
The vegetables displayed were of the best
kinds, consisting of cabbages, turnips, corn,
parsnips, onions, squashes, tomatoes, celery,
Ac., from T. C. Hersey, J. B. Coyle, William
Moulton, F. O. Bailey, Edwin Stevens, John
W. Adams, C. S. King, and others.
Of flowers there was an abundance, consist
ing of dahlias, boquets, floral rings, w ild flow

baskets of splendid wild flowers.
Mrs. C.S. King presented some specimens

bright as when they were picked. Mr. Joseph
Batchelder presented a handsome case of

great attention. Mr. Joseph Walker present
ed two cotton plants, and two tobacco plants.
Many other ai tides were also presented, of
which we would take note but for our limited
space.
The hall was crowded in the afternoon and
evening, so much so, that the directors decid
ed to keep the exhibition open this afternoon
and evening. The price of tickets will be 15
cents.
We advise those of our citizens who have
not seen this exhibition, to visit it either this
afternoon or this evening. They will witness
the handsomest display of fruits and flowers
that has ever been collected in this State.
The promenade concert and dance in the
large hall, in the evening, attracted a great
crowd. Compauy A, Portland Battalion,
Capt Jones, 84 in number, marched over from
the camj) and participated in the festivities of
the evening. Every tiling went ofl' happily,
and the dancing was kept up to a late hour.—
It was a good move on the part of the direc
tors of the society, in introducing this feature
to their exhibition. May it often be repeated
with the name success.
The display of fruits and flowers at the show
is so much lurger than was expected, that the
whole are to be removed into the large hall
for exhibition this afternoon and evening.

Differences of opinion among the memliers
of the Cabinet alioiit the President’s proclama

Acting Assistant Paymaster Niblo, of the
navy, ami late of the U. S. steamer Montgom

Hon. liichard Francot has resigned the col

cepted the position only temjmrarily. A cap

agreeable to all parties, considering the mili

Secretary Stanton lias appointed Simeon
Draper, Fsq., of New York, to be Provost
Marshal General of the War Department; the
new post created a few days ago under Gene
ral Order No. 140.
James Munson, of Ohio, has been appointed
Consul at Hio Jauerio, in place of liichard C.
Parsons.
The address presented by the Governors of
the States to President Lincoln, will probably
be published to-morrow.
Col. Van Wyck lias arrived here from his
command at Yorfctown, where lie represents
affairs as very dull. This is the llrst time lie
has lieen absent from the Peninsula since
March. He will leave to-morrow afternoon on
a brief visit to New York, on business.
Mason Brayman, of Illinois, lias been ap
pointed Brig. Gen. of Volunteers.
During the late session of Congress the Sec
retary of the Navy was authorized to cause
two hundred medals of honor to lie prepared,
with suitable emblems and devices, which
shall be bestowed upon such petty officers,
seamen, landsmen and marines as shall most
distinguish themselves by gallantry in action
and oilier scamen-iikc qualities, during the
present war, and one thousand dollars were
appropriated for that purpose. The depart
ment Unlay received three of the medals as
specimens, from the Philadelphia mint, where
they are manufactured. They are in bronze
silver and gold. IteautUhlly ami elaborately ex
ecuted. The diameter is aliout two inches,
aud the medals are in tile form of a star, with
five points. Within titc circular border is the
represeution of a male figure in relief, with a
serpent in each hand, his attitude and counten
ance expressive of discomfiture by the genius
of liberty, who, witli an air of apparent calm
ness, but firmness, interposes her shield as a
defence from Itis designs. The medal is sur
mounted by an anchor, above which is a
buckle, aud tit the termination of a strip of
woven silk, the colors arranged after the man
ner of those of tiie American flag, is a pin for
the attachment of this mark of honor to the
breast.
It is ascertained on inquiry that tiie next
steamer from New York w ill carry a sufficient
amount of money to tiie Gulf for the payment
of all amounts due to our soldiers in that de
prutmcnt. .Sometime ago the necessary funds
were transmitted to South and North Carolina
for a similar purpose. With comparatively
lew exceptions, no part of the army is more
titan one payment in arrears, and the reasons
for this are tiie inattention of company officers
and paymasters, and the large niimliers of
stragglers away from the places of muster.
Difficulties, too, exist in consequence of the
necessity of furnishing United Suites notes of
the denominations of live, ten and twenty dol
lars, although the printers use every effort to
answer these very large demands, besides all
the Inanities and advances to volunteers and
recruits, amounting to twelve or fourteen mil
lion dollars, have, as far as known, been paid,
ami those disbursements have remiirwl it...
use ol notes of the smaller denominations.
It not unfrcqucntly occurs that drafts are
suspended owing to informalities and other
causes. The immense expenditures of the de
partment requiring close attention and accu
racy, the following regulations lor the guid
ance of paymasters of the United State* are
hereby established, in conformity to the Ktltli
section of the excise law, namely:—First—
Paymasters and disbursing otlieers w ill deduct
and withhold the sum of three per cent, from
all salaries and payments of every kind made
in money to persons in the civil, military,
navaj or other employment or service of the
L nited^tates, including Senators and Kepre
sentatives and delegates in Congress, ujkiu the
excess of such salaries or payments over the
rate of six hundred dollars per annum.
Second—Supplies issued in kind are not re
garded as payments, and are not subject to as
sessment or reduction. Third—It is under
stood that each commissioned officer of the
army receives from the paymaster compensa
tion at the rate of not less than six hundred
dollars ]>er annum. Therefore all payments
made by a quartermaster or disbursing agent
should lie treated as being in excess of the |
rate of six hundred dollars per annum, and
the rati: ot tax ol three per cent, should be
deducted and withheld from the amount there
of accordingly.
Brig. General Emery has been assigned to
duty with the 8th Army Corps, and ordered

A Port Royal letter of the 36th ult.. says the
steamer Nashville is penned in the Oguechee
her escaping. John M. Sussex, her late chief
officer, was captured on a pilot boat.
Charleston and Savannah arc being fortified
continually. The streets of Charleston are de
fended by rifle nits. The bay is obstructed
with piles, fire rails, 4c. Three gunlxiats are
in the harbor. Every body seems to think
that Charleston will be attacked soon. Gen.
Mitchell is maturing his plans therefor.
Our force at Port Itoyal is considerably in
creased. The health of the troops is excellent.
Tlie Fingal, a rebel ram, is nearly completed
at Savannah. The two others will probably
prove failures.
_ Vera Cruz dates of Sept. 19th, state that the
French had taken possession of a place called
I,a Salcdad, situated between Vera Cruz and
Orizaba, and had garrisoned it with the 2d
corps ot zouaves. The object is to secure
communication between the two cities. Ty

with all necessaries by Gov. Morton.
The Democrat is informed of a slight skir
mish between our ttoops and the rebels, a t
Fern Church, last evening, in which the feil
erals were successful.
Unreliable reports are prevalent of skirmish
es further down the road, but military circles
are unadvised thereof, and they are probably
incorrect.
Large numbers of relations and friends of
officers and soldiers in Gen. Buell's army are
in the city, crowding the hotels and private
houses almost to suffocation.

The Proclamation in tue Army and
Navy.—Col. Forney writes the following con
cerning the reception ol the President's
emancipation proclamation :
“So far as I can ascertain, many of the most
distinguished officers iu the army and navy
arc known either to have endorsed it since its
appearance, or to have expected and asked for
it. Of these 1 feel free to name Generals
Hooker, Banks, Wadsworth, Heintzelman,
Sigel, John A. McClernand, John Logan,
Sickles, Meagher, ami, of course, Generals
Hunter, Butler and Phelps. In the navy, Ad
miral Dupont is authoritatively quoted among
the earnest advocates of the policy of emanci
pation ; and so also of the gallant old seaman
now in command of the United States Naval
Asylum at Philadelphia, Commander Joseph
Engle.
There is a large class of regular officers in
both branches of the service who are expected
to oppose tlie proclamation, and among these
General McClellan is boldly named. Happily,
however, 1 have tlie best reason for knowing
that these officers will disappoint this treason
able hope. Whatever their opinions may he,
they will fearlessly obey tlie acts of Congress,
and stand liy the Executive in enlorcing these
acts. There is, besides, a class of public men,
not in the army, and not republicans, who give
tlie proclamation their warm, cordial, and
grateful sanction.”
Gen. McCleunard and the Proclama
tion.— John A. McClemard of Illinois is well
known to tlie country as a prominent demo
cratic Congressman from Illinois, and the in
timate friend and exponent of Stephen A.
Douglas. The New York Times says he cor
dially approves tlie President's emancipation
proclamation:
“ He is very outspoken in his approbation of
the President's proclamation against slavery,
believing it to U; a good tiling, and calculated
to quiet public senlimeut, as a large (lortion of
the loyal [icople of tlie North desired some
declaration as a matter of principle, while tlie
portionless loyal wereconstsutly clamoring in
anticipation of some such act, and picturing
hii sorts 01 nnrrors as meviiaiily to result._
All knew, lie says, that the position must be
taken sooner or later, and tile sooner the bet
ter lor the country.
It cannot do harm at the South, as the peo
ple there aiw'ays believed it would come at
some time, and acted ou that belief. It will
greatly help us in England, by gratifying the
Anti-slavery sentiment of the English people,
as distinguished from the English aristocracy.
In bis judgment, it is an eminently wise meas
ure. These views are believed to be those of
the Douglas party in the North.”
A Slaveuoldinu Woman Asking Aid
ok it Lit Formic it Slave.—The New York
Post prints a letter—declared to be genuine—
from tile wife of a Virginia slaveholder, who
is iu tile rebel aruiv, to their former slave, now
a freeman at Fortress Monroe, asking for pro
visions and money, its she is left without sup
port for herself and children, and is “in need
of everything.” The letter is a curiosity.—
The woman says :
“I have no money of any kind that would
pass. I want you to send me some bacon and
sugar and coffee,and any other things you can
get that I want. 1 have no money to buy a
thing with. You have had twelve mouths
freedom to make money iu—it is time to do
something for me and my children. They are
iu want of clothes, and the w inter is cowing
on. If you do not send me some, money they
will perish with the cold, for wood is very high
and 1 am not aide to buy any now to cook
with. \I e have done all in our power for you
until you left us,—and can you hear of vour
master’s children starving and vou able to
work aud help them ? No. I cannot believe it!”
Bekcueb on Parties.—In a sermon deliv
ered recently, Henry Ward Beecher said:
Tlie time has come when there can only lie
two parties. Before, wt*Au there w as no policy.
Borne were trying to urge one thing ou the
President, some another; but now the Presi
dent has himself chosen between slavery and
liberty. Now there can be only two parties—
those wlni uphold the rebels and traitors, and
those who stand by the President and the
Government,”
'(t'A Washington letter iu the New Y'ork
Commercial says Gov. Stanley is believed to
have left Washington fully satisfied w ith the
emancipation proclamation, as lie is confident
that before the 1st ilay of next January, North
Carolina will “be in good faith represented in
the Congress of the United States.”

As late captaiu of Company E, of the 13th reft*
ment, Maine Volunteers, having beeu obliged to re
sign my commission in couseoueuce of severe illness,
1 CMiiuot forbear to make public acknowledgement of
kiud attentions show u tue by members of the 13th
regiiueut, Maine Volunteers, while lying rich for
several weeks.
Iteing on business in New Orleans, for from my
ow u regiment. 1 was suddeulv taken ill by reason of
a sun stroke, and was immediately conveyed to tho
quarters uf the 12th regiment.
While gratefully ackuowh-dging general atten
tions. 1 feel under especial obligations to Surgeon
Thompson, who was unremitting in his rffbris. and
who, by his promptness and skill, was the means, un
der liod, of saving my life. When I had so for re
covered as to be able to be removed on shipboard for
a passage home, he accompanied me to the reasel,a»4
put me in charge of II. ?*. Dearborn, surgeon of tho
8th New Hampshire regiment, who also was apna
sengur. aud from whom I received all the care which
medical skill and s> inoathv could supply.
At New Orleans Col. Klmnall called on me every
day, inviting me to his quarters, offering me his own
bed, and rendering me assistance in various forme.—
The same is true ol < apt Farrington, and aleo of
Adjutant Ifeaiie. < apt Robinson,Lieut. SkillinJLtoot,
l oan, .Sera mut-Major Margin, Commissary Drake,
Sergeant-Major llodgdon. or the Louisiana 3d, who
were equally kind in their atteutious. The last three
w atched with me constantly, and bestowed on mo tho
most delicate care.
l.od bless them, each and every one; and God
bless the Maine 12th as a whole, not only for their
personal kinduoss to a disabled officer of another
regiment, in his severe affliction, far away from his
own dear home, but especially for their patriotic de
votion to our beloved and bleeding country. Many
of them, if not before, hoic understand the cause of
this internal rebellion, and are prepared to strike tho
blow which would speedily crush it forever. May
the order to strike soon be* given, and our country
redeemed from the greatest curse that ever befel tho
race. Isaac **. quixby.
