MATTERS ABOUT TOWN.
Supreme Judicial Court. OCT. TERM—WALTON, J., PRESIDING. Monday—No. 554. Cynthia J. Shattuck, Libellant, v. Jacob P. Shattuck. Libel for divorce. Libellant elected to have the case go to a jury. The parties reside in Westbrook and were married May 2, 1855. In her petition the libellant alleges that her husband compelled her to cook and wash for sundry laborers in his employ, and ‘•imposed upon her other severe, excessive and menial labors, entirely neglecting and refusing to pro cure for her any sufficient assistance, though abundantly able so to do.” 2d. That respoudant was constantly in the habit of using towards her violent, profane and abusive language, aud that in the fall of 1858 lie left the house in which they were then dwelling, declaring in a passionate and brutal manner that he would not have her work for, or live with, him any longer; aud abandoned her therefrom. 3d. That said Jacob P., since their inter- j marriage, has committed the crime of adultery, j with divers women in Canada, Massachusetts, Portland and other places in Cumberland County. This point she expects to prove by admissions made by respoudant to various persons. 4th. That in consequence of such treatment and abandonment, libellant was obliged to take refuge in the house of her father, where she remained for the space of four weeks, when the said Jacob P., by promises to treat her kindly, and to have a servant girl, induced her to return; but that he partially kept his prom ise for a few days only, and again pursued his former conduct towards her. 5th. That said Jacob P. has threatened to throw her from the window, to turn her out of doors forever, to kick her; and used other passionate, malicious aud threatening language towards her. 6tli. That said Jacob P. seized her by the shoulder threatening to turn her out of doors, and that she should not return, ami violently shook and maltreated her; that he broke up house-keeping agaiust her wish, and carried away the lurniture in said house, leaving her destitute and without means of support—pro her to go to Groton, Mass., saying he would “train her like Jehu.'’ She also represents that between herself and the said Jacob P. there neither is nor lias for along time been any affection, and that by reason of his aforesaid conduct she is con stants wretched and lives in continual fear, and that she neither can, nor dares, nor will live longer witli him. Wherefore site prays for a divorce, and that reasonable alimony and such other provision may be made for her as the Court may consider just The libel is dated Xov. 1. IW. The respondent denies the allegations of libellant and affirms that after her marriage to him she neglected to exercise the attention, care, oversight and management of his house hold affairs, and became slatternly in her hab its and indifferent to their mutual interests. He denies using profane and abusive lan guage towards her or that he left his dwelling as alleged, or that at any time he ever com mitted the crime of adultery. He denies that the libellant was ever obliged to take refuge in her father's house, or that he ever induced her to return to his dwelling, or made any such promises and broke them, as alleged. He also denies that he has ever threatened to throw the libellant out of the window, turn her out of the house, kick her, ike., as she has alleged. The respondent then avers that since his marriage lie strictly in all tilings consulted her wishes; purchased a piano forte Tor her, at her request, and employed a teacher to give her lessons in music, and also at her request em ployed a competent teacher in drawing. But while he was thus endeavoring to consult her wishes and promote her accomplishments, she was in the habit of conducting herself inde cently in the company of men and women; of speaking of him in disrespectful and unkind terms; of manifesting a general disregard of her word; of clandestine correspondence with persons of both sexes, with whom, as she well knew, respondent did not think she could be intimate with prudence or in proper self-re spect. That with her consent he arranged to dispose of his business in this State and re move to Groton, Mass., and that after securing a residence there he proceeded to remove his household furniture thither; and after this was done libellant refused to accompany him.— That after some time, finding that she would not leave Westbrook, he returned to that place and made one more attempt to live with li neiiant in westnrooK, ana made all the ad vances comporting with a proper self-respect, to induce the libellant to return to his house, which has always been open to her, but which she refuses to enter. The respondent further avers that the libel lant never had any affection for him, but mar ried him solely for his money, as she lias fre quently avowed; wherefore he prays the libel may be dismissed. The case was opened to the jury by Mr Fox for libellant, and some progress was made in examination of witnesses. Frederick Fox and F. O. J. Smith for libellant: Shepley & Dana for respondent. Defences of Portland Harbor.—We are glad to learn that CoL Green, at Fort Pre ble, has received such a supply of powder, ball, <fcc., as will enable him to protect our port from any ordinary war steamer, excepting a thorough iron clad vessel. The Colonel is daily drilling his men at the guris, and as there are twenty-live guns mounted at Fort Scain mel, we hope to see that fort placed under the Colonel's command, and a portion of his men detailed to garrison that fort. Capt. Casey will be able to mount at least forty heavy guns in his casements at Fort Gorges this (all, and as has been announced, a portion of these guns have already been ship ped and are on the way here. If rebel ernisers are to iufest our coast, let our authorities here, both national and municipal, be ready to give them a warm reception. Steamers Between Liverpool and Portland.—By the advertisement in the Liverpool papers of the. 23d of October, it would appear that the steamer of the Montreal Ocean line which left Liverpool last Thursday would come to this port. The advertisement states that after Oct. 30th the steamers would run to Portland. Unless this arrangement has beeu changed we may look for a foreign steamer next week. Resignation of Judge Lane.—We learn that Judge Lane has tendered his resignation as Judge of the Municipal Court, to take ef fect on the 1st of December. This is done so that the power of the court shall not be sus pended, as would be the case if he resigned forthwith, the Executive Council not meeting until the 1st day of December. Railway Traffic.—The receipts of the Grand Trunk Railway for the week ending Nov. 1st were *06,216,56 Corresponding week last year, 102,294,09 Dcrease. *6,077,53 | BY TELEGRAPH -TO THE EVE\I\r. PAPERS. The Surrender of Harper’s Ferry. New York, Nov. 10. The Tribune prints the report of the Har per’s Ferry Commission. The substance of the results so far attained, is as follows: It is clear that Col. Ford should not have been placed in command of Maryland Heights; that lie conducted the defence without ability, and abandoned his position without sufficient cause, ami lias shown throughout such a lack of military capacity as to disqualify him, in the opinion of the commission, for a command in the service. With regard to Col. Miles’ report, it says it is not necessary to accumulatewHiience from the mass that throughout scarcely affords one fact in contradiction to what each one es tablishes—that Col. Miles was incapable of conducting a defence so important as was this of Harper’s Ferry. The committee would not have dwelt upon this painful subject were it not the fact that the officer who placed this incapable one in command, should share in the responsibility, and, in the opinion of the commission. Major Gen. Wool is guilty, to this extent, of a grave disaster, and should be censured for his con duct. The commission has remarked freely on Col. Milos, an old officer who has been killed in the service of his country,and it cannot, from any motives ol delicacy, restrain from censuring those in high command, when it thinks such censure deserved. The General-in-Chief has testified that Gen. McClellan, after having received orders to re pel the enemy invading the State of Maryland, marched only six miles per day, oil mi average, when pursuing this invading enemy. The General-in-Chief also testifies,that in liis opin ion Gen. McClellan could, and shonld. have re lieved and protected Harper’s Ferry, and in this opinion the commission fully concur. Various Items. ✓ New York, Nov. 10. The steamship Glasgow, from Europe, has arrived. News anticipated. The Herald lias a rumor that Secretaries Seward and Blair are opposed to Gen.

The Tribune's Washington dispatch says Lee arrived at Richmond a fortnight ago. and itis whole army aiiout the Caine time crossed the Rappahannock.

Close of the Costa Rica and U. S. Commission. Proposals for United States Bonds. Gen. Hooker in Command of Gen. Porter's Division. Washington, Nov. 10. All statements alleging disaffection in the army by consequence of the change in the ar my of the Potomac, are pronounced by those who have tlie best means of knowing, to be without foundation. The Costa Kica and United States Commis sion has closed its session by limitation.— Thirteen claims against the former govern ment were rejected, and 18 referred to the Umpire, the chevalier Bertinatta, the Italian minister. The questions to he determined re late to domiciles and fillibustering.

Items from Kit-limonil Papers. Fortress Moxrok. Not. 9. At I o’clock to-day lhe English frigates Cad mus and Petrel, at anchor in the roads, tired a salute in honor of tlie birth day of tlie Prince of Wales. The V. S. gunboat Miami left Fortress Mon roe this afternoon lor the coast of North Car olina. It is said Admiral Lee went in her. The flag of truce steamboat Express arriv ed from Aiken’s Landing at 2 o’clock this af ternoon, bringing from secessia 150 Union prisoners. The Richmond Whig of Nov. 8(h. in speak ing of tlie recent Northern elections, says: “ They show plainly that tlie tide sets all one way. and that against Abraham Lincoln and his rampant war party. If tlie electioneering asservations and appeals of this party could be credited, this success of tlie Democrats is about equal to a declaration of peace; but they are not to lie credited, and wi are not permitted to take that comfort to onr bosoms. We have reason to hope, though, that with a Democrat ic Congress and a Republican administration, regarding each other as men who are in doubt, but that to-morrow they may lie cutting each otlier’s throats, tiie war will not be set forward any. As Lincoln and his party brought on the war.aml have conducted it themselves, the people have meant by this remarkable revolu tion to declare, not only a deep dissatisfaction, but to decree that important changes shall be made; and having found out their strength, ami having less fear of the bastile before their eyes, we may expect that the opposition will now speak their sentiments with a boldness if they have not dared to venture lielore. The following is also Irom the Whig: Gen. Eeliols, commanding our army in the Kana wha Valley, was induced to fall hack by the representations of a Yankee spy, who passed himself off as a Federal soldier. He came to Gen. Echols, gave himself up as a prisoner, in forming tlie General that a large force of tlie enemy were coining in his rear by way of Nichols Court House. It turns out he w as a Yankee spy sent for the purpose he unfortu nately accomplished. Having large quantities of counterfeit Confederate money on his per son. he was arrested and is now in tlie hands of Gen. Echols: he will soon try the strengtli of Southern hemp. This move of Gen. Echols is a most unfortunate one. At present we are not only cut off Irom securing through the en emies of our country large quantities of salt, but we have abandoned to tlie mercy of the merciless enemy many warm friends and sup porters of tlie government. The Whig also says: The changes of posi tion of our army in Northern Virginia, lias been anticipated for some time, ami creates no surprise. There are rumors of an engagement at Snicker's Gap. From Weldon wc have reports of an ad vance of the enemy upon that place. If it be true, arrangements will be made to give the invaders a warm reception. We had a touch of wiuler in earnest yester day in the shape of a snow storm. The ..... . .1 .ii.. ..i.i _i ? i . Oil Monday last the abolitionists marched from Washington, N. C.. to a point on the Koanoke river below Wilmington, to cutoff the 17tli and 57th regiments stationed there.— Four companies of the 2<ith encountered the whole Yankee force, and kept them at bay during the whole day, and last night the entire confederate forces had reached the scene, and offered battle to the enemy, who fell hack to prevent a tight. Shelling was kept up by the gunboats till ten o'clock 1’. M. Our entire €broe fell bark last night to Spring Green, be low Williamston, to prevent a Hank move ment by reinforcements from Washington.— Our loss was two killed and 31 wounded. The Yankee loss was very heavy. One entire cav alry company was cut up and destroyed. We learn from Masonboro’ Sound this morn ing, that the blockading squadrou commenced firing on an English brig, w hich w as supposed to be running the blockade. The brig was run ashore. Beauregard and the city commissioners of Charleston, have give notice in the papers that non-combatant inhabitants able to pro vide for their own removal, should leave the city with their slaves and property moveable as soon as convenient, and thereby avoid the embarrassments to which they will he subject if they delay till necessity arises for the sud den removal of the entire population. Wilmington, N. C.,8th.—New cases of yel low fever were reported on Monday. New eases are few', but deaths are very sudden. Augusta, Ga , 6th.—The Savannah Republi can of this morning says the abolitionists were bombarding Tampa Bay, Florida, on the 3d. Our forces were confident of their ability to hold out. In Jackson, on the 5th inst., a cartridge fac tory exploded, killing every person employed in the works. Not less than 30 lives were lost. Mobile, Oth.—The enemy have advanced in force to Lagrange, Teuu., and are advancing on this place. Jackson’s cavalry to-day had a skirmish at Lamar. It is probable the enemy will give us battle, as they are about to make 6trenuous efforts to open the Mississippi. The prospect of recognition is hurrying them up. Drafting in Wisconsin. TROUBLE IN MILWAUKEE. Mii.waukie, Nov. 10. Tlie draft in this State commenced to-day.— In some localities it passed off quietly anil in order. In Ozakie county the lists were seized by a mob and destroyed. The commissioner was severely handled, and tied to this city.— Iu Milwaukic City strong indications of trouble, complaints being made that injustice had been done some of the w ards in not giv ing proper credit for volunteers. A crow d of Oth warders assembled and marched through the city, to the number of 300 or 400. The result of tbe matter was that the draft was postponed for the present. «p—■ I From the Army of the Potomac. Headquarters Army of Potomac, ) November loth, lht»2. ( Gen. McClellan was to have left yesterday for the north, hut transferring of u command like this could not be accomplished in a day, and he was therefore compelled to remain, At about 9 o’clock this evening all officers be longing to headquarters assembled at the Gen eral's tent to bid him farewell. The only toast given was by Gen. McClellan, “The Army of the Potomac.” Gen. McClellan and stall',"ac companied by Burnside to-day, bid farewell to this army, visiting in succession the several army corps. As the General rode through the ranks the battered banners of the veteran reg iments were dipped to greet him, while the thousands of soldiers gave vent in continuous rounds of cheers and applause to their feelings. The General's stall’ will leave by special train to-morrow for the north. Tlie following order was issued by Gen. Burnside on taking command of the army:— In accordance with General Order No. 1S2, issued by the President of the United States, I hereby assume command of the army of the Potomac. Patriotism and the exercise of mv every energy in the direction of this army, aided by the full, hearty co-operation of its of ficers and men will, 1 hope, under the blessing of God, ensure its success. Having been a sharer of the privations and a witness of the bravery of the old army of the Potomac in the Maryland campaign, and fully identified with tuein in their feeling of respect and esteem for Gen. McClellan, entertained through a long and most friendly association with him, I feel that it is not as a stranger I assume command. To the ninth army corps, so long and intimately associated with me, 1 need say nothing. Our histories are identical. With diffidence for myself, hut with a proud confi dence in the unswerving loyolly and determi nation of the gallant army now entrusted to my care, I accept its control with the steadfast assurance that the just cause must prevail.

The Young Democracy are holding a grand jubilee in Union Hall to-night. Illuminations, music, and national salutes are being tired.— Van Bttren and A. Gorman are the principal speakers. The name of McClellan was hailed with tremendous cheers whenever mentioned. The recent reported challenge by Cassius M. Clay of D. C. Bird-all proves to be a hoax. The steamer Vanderbilt goes to sea to-uiglit in searelt of the Alabama. The mixed court for this city under the re cent treaty with Great Britain lor the suppres sion of the slave trade is organized.
