It is no disparagement to any other regi

In the service has won a higher place upon the
page of history for courage and endurance
than “the gallant Seventh.” It lias been en

Visit to the Perkins Institution for the Blind
at South Boston—a Correction—Aquarial
Gardens — Howard Athencum — the Elec
tions—the Storm.
Boston, Nov. 8,1862.
Dear Readers:—The annual visit of your
State authorities to the Perkins Institution
and Massachusetts Asylum for the Blind was
made yesterday. The winter term has but
just commenced, and inauy_pf the pupils have
not yet returned; but every facility was afford
ed us for examination, and we were shown
over the entire building by Mr. Campbell,
teacher of music, who i» himself blind. In
the music rooms, several of the larger pupils
were practicing their lessons on the piano, and
some of them exhibited marked proficiency.
The school-rooms are wellsupppied with maps
made expressly for llie blind, and the various
classes we saw, showed that they had made
fair improvement in their studies. Several
of the pupils can write with cousiderable fa
cility. They have sheets of pasteboard pre
pared with little grooves, running parallel
across them. Upon these, sheets of aper are
laid, and by following the grooves, and guid
ing their pencil with the fore-finger of their
left hand, the pupils are enabled to write, some
of them with considerable facility. The class
in mathematics, under tile instruction of their
blind teacher, Mr. Parks, exhibited marked
progress in this department, and readily and
quickly solved difficult mathematical problems
by a mental process entirely. In the work
shops connected with the instititutiou are
manufactured corn brooms, mats, matrasses,
Ac. There are nine pupils now in the institu
tion from our own State, eight of them
State beneficiaries. Their names are as fol
lows: Helen Nute, Wiscassct; Wm. L. Stover,
York; Elvira S. Murray, Bangor; Frederic
Crocker, Bangor; Grace Beed, Portland; Al
ice and Maria Snow, Bath; Joseph Jones,
Hodgdou; Lizzie Chick, Limingtou. There
is no luud, such as belongs to the American
Asylum; and the annual expense is two hun
dred dollars lor each pupil. This sum covers
all expenses except for clothing, such as board,
washing, medicines, use of musical instru
ments, books, Ac. Pupils must pay their own
fares to and from the institution, and furnish
their own clothing. The usual period of in
struction is for five to ten years. Indigent
blind persdfcs, residing in Maine, can obtain
warrants for free admission to this institution
upon application to the Governor and Coun
cil. The application should be accomDanied
by a certificate from the city.or town authori
ties where the person resides, that the parents
are unable to pay $200 per annum for the
child's instruction; also a certificate signed
by some regular physician, that the child has
not sufficient vision to be taught in our com
mon schools, and that he is free from epilepsy,
aud from any contagious disease. All the pa
pers should be sent to the Secretary of State,
Augusta, Me.
From the Statistics of the institution we
learn that the blind, as a class, do not live so
long as other people. They are less endowed
with vitality, aud as a consequence have less
health and strength, less ability for the active
duties, and consequently the pleasures of life.
But if the standard of bodily vigor is lower,
the standard of mental activity is higher than
is to be found in ordinary schools of the same
grade. Having less to distract their attention,
all their mental powers can be, and are, more
intensely concentrated; and hence blind child
ren, other things being equal, have what are
termed ‘‘precocious intellects.’’
Our little party left, well satisfied with their
visit, and convinced that our noble State loses
nothing by its liberality to its poor blind child
In our letter from Hartford we notice that
the types make us say that the estimated cost
of maintaining the pupils at the American
Asylum lor the deaf aud dumb is one hundred
and ei'jht dollars. We wrote, or intended to
write, oue hundred and eighty dollars. Our
readers will make the necessary correction.
Persons visiting this city should not fail to
visit ‘•Barnum’s Aquarlal Gardens.” A living
wiiale is a curiosity of itself, but besides this
there is a large number of beautiful tropical
fish, as well as fish not so beautiful, all living
aud seemingly healthy. Here may be seen the
beautiful aud intelligent seal, as well as the
more unwieldy walrus,—little crocodiles, mon
keys, Guinea pigs, Ac. Ac.,—so that one may
spend an hour or two very profitably as well
as pleasantly.
Hast evening we went to sec Mr. and Mrs.
Barney Williams in their favorite characters,
at ij}ic Howard.” Barney’s delineations of
IriJb humor anil character arc ti ithlnl and
amusing in the extreme, while Mrs. W. is
equally au fait as an Irish damsel or a “Yankee
gal,’’ They were not supported well how ever,
I —————————i
ami it seemed to us that we never saw a poor*
or stock company. Mr. Marshall ought to
give better support to his “stars.”
The results of the recent election in New
York aud elsewhere, are discouraging, yet so
far as otir observation extends, are very gener
ally attributed tothuj&ck of energy In the man
agement of the war. We hope, however, that
these elections, adverse as they seem to he,
will be heeded by the Government, aud that
lhe people will soon see that the gigantic ef
forts they have made for the suppression of
the rebellion, have not been made in vain.
Yesterday a severe snow storm prevailed
here, ami to-day it Is raining some. The streets
are coveted to the depth of six or eight inches
with a very disagreeable mixture of snow, water
and mud, ami the crossings are simply fords,
where rubber boots alone will keep the feet
dry. Truly, the streets of Boston are not very
inviting iu such a storm. Meu and women
hurry along with umbrellas |miiitcd square
ahead, and every uow and then, collisions oc
cur, aud the hurrying pedestrians are brought
"up all standing” by ahrilliant umbrella charge.

Star gone out—in disgracet
Washington, Nov, 9,18(!2.
Maine may well be proud of her soldiers
and of her Generals. Of the latter she
lias lately been called to mourn one, dead at
his home, a victim of the CUickahoininy, the
mists of the pestilence mingling with the
mists of glory around his brow, as an intrep
id officer.
Gbn. Jameson has left no superior among
the leaders of the half million of men who
now lie stretched inactive from Harper’s Fer
ry to Fortress Monroe. As a man, genial and
cordial, he won friends everywhere. Aud lie
never deserted them, no more than he would
have deserted his post on a tierce and bloody
Held T.et him rest l.v tlir Peuoliseot! If
those who survive him prove as brave as he,
the trend of battle shall never sweep where
the grass grows green alaive his grave;
and peace, good, true, and noble peace, shall
; rest on the banner whose flaming folds he
l waved in the forefront of war.
Had the malaria of the Peninsula spared
I him for those lights, full alike of glory and of
1 shame, which accompanied McClellan's re
treating path from the swamps to the James
—had Ids health been spared for those dismal
days, he would have lived, or fallen higher in
rank, and with new wreaths of prowess. But
better it is, if perish he must, that he die as
lie has, on the shores of his native Penobscot,
with tlie grade he won that dreary day when,
at.the head ol Penobscot men, he and they
snatched glory from a Held wheuce many
sought hut inglorious escape.
Gess Howard is an acting Major General,
commanding a Division. It is from the day of
Antietam that this higher command dates. In
that field his immediate commander fell, amid
carnage which broke the lines of the Division.
The senior officer sought in vain to re-form its
shattered ranks. "Let Howard take it!” said
the General commanding the corps. Thus
called to command, this Christian General,
there amid the crashing of the enemy’s artil
lery among their ranks, and the hail of fierce
musketry, reformed the wavering lines, and
led them afresh to the victory which came
with the setting sun—a victory which, from
no fault of his, and such as he, was of poor
and meagre results.
Gen. Berry was of the array-corps under
Hooker. Ilis aehievment has been such, his
capacity is so marked, that Get), nooker has
most strenuously pressed upon the authorities
the propriety of his appointment as a Miyor
General. To this end he stated to the Gener
al-in-chief, that he had no means of knowing
what were Gen. Berry’s earlier advantages of
military education; he did know that he was a
brave, skillful, gallant, intrepid and patriotic
officer; that he belonged to the class of men
w ho are to save the country if it is to be sav
ed ; and lie begged to remind the General-in
chief that he (Hooker) would recommend no
man for a major general whom he would not
desire to have serve under himself or whom he
would not willingly serve under. Thus is Ber
ry spoken of by a man whose praise is glory.
Geu. Carleton’ is another man, of whom
the state may well be proud. He has been so
loug away from the state,having been appoint
ed iuto the army more than twenty years ago,
and passed most of that petiod in frontier ser
vice, that few among you of the present gen
eration personally know him. ne has, in all
this period, lieen winning credit as an officer,
and at the same time as a man of letters. His
little volume upon the battle of Bcuna Vista,
in which he took part, is a most graphic book,
lie now has a most important though remote
command, on the Mexieau frontier, in Arizo
na and New Mexico, where important inter
ests are at stake.
In the battle of Antietam, as the reader will
see, on referring to Gen. Richardson’s report,
the brigade of your Gen. Caldwell captnr
ed more rebel flags than any other brigade up
on the field.
Acting Brigadier General Charles W.
Roberts, who succeeded Jameson as Col. of
the Maine Second, is allowed to have handled
his brigade splendidly, in the battle last men
tioned. His old brigade commander, the gen
eral of his division, the general commanding
his army-corps,and Gen. McClellan, have each
commended him to the President, for appoint
ment as Brigadier-General. He deserves it,
and the gallant Second, never found wanting,
is entitled to furnish another general.
These are some of your Maine chieftains—
wh^ is to lead them on the fields of Virginia?
To-day McClellan's star has gone down in dis
grace, it is feared. What new developments
have led to the removal are nown as yet only
to the few high in power. Whispers, hoarse
and baleful in the town to-day, hint of a con
spiracy detected to seize the government, and
establish a military dictatorship. 1 cannot be
lieve that tile good sense of McClellan lias
l>een overpersuaded into so wretched a plot.
But we shall know alt if the government has
the nerve to be frank to the people who own
it. If it lack such nerve, God help the repub
lic at this hour! Yours, I).

Mr. Rice Elected in Third (Mass.) Dis
trict.—The Boston Journal states that Hon.
A. II. Rice is elected in the third (Mass.) dis
trict by a plurality of twenty-two votes over
Mr. Sleeper, who was reported elected. That
paper states that in re-counting the votes for
] Representative to Congress in Ward 12, it has
been discovered that in the first count on the
day of election, a package of twenty-eight
People's tickets contained the name of Mr.
Rice instead of Mr. Sleeper. Another ticket
was also found otf which the name of Mr.
Sleeper was scratched out with a line pencil,
and the word “Rice” written on the top margin.
Consequently the Ward officers have made a
corrected return, which, if received by the
Board of Aldermen, gives the following result:
Mr. Sleeper's sntn rh before returned..1049
Deduct correction in South Boston vote. 23
Mr. Rice’s vote its before returned...... 5015
Add correction in South Bostou vote. 2S
Deduct Sieeper's vote.... .5021

officers to concet their reports.

the use of intoxicating liquor. Since leaving
