MATTERS ABOUT TOWN.
Supreme Judicial Court.
OCT. TERM—WALTON, J., PRESIDING.
Wednesday—The divorce ease of Shat
tuck vs. Shattuck was continued. At the ad
journment of the Court Tuesday evening Mr.
Shattuck, the respondent, was on the stand.
Wednesday morning he underwent a severe
cross examination. Mrs. Shattuck, the libel
lant, was then placed upon the stand. In the
most emphatic manner she denied all that had
been testified to in regard to her conduct.
She said butfor this matter having been bruited
round by the respondent and his friends, much
to her discreilit, she never would have sought
to make it public by a jury trial. She chose
this course to clear herself from the aspersions
which had been cast upou her. Some other
evidence was taken, and at half-past 5 o’clock
P. M. it was announced that the evidence was
all iu. Judge Shepley then commenced his
argument to the jury for the respondent.
After he had proceeded a short time, Court
adjourned to 9 o’clock Thursday morning.
Municipal Court—Nov. 12.
Wm. Baldwin, for assault on Julia McCarty,
paid a fine imposed of $3 and costs.
Patrick Sullivan, for drunkenness and dis
turbance, was fined $3 and costs. Refusing to
pay, he was committed to jail.
Resignation—Moses Woolson, Esq., has
resigned ids situation as Principal of the High
School for Girls in this city. Mr. W. has been
tlie Principal of this school for the last twelve
years, that being the time it lias been in exist
ence, having been called from the Bangor
High School for Girls to fill the place. Dur
ing the twelve years a great many of our
young ladies have tluisbcd their education at
this school. Mr. W. has lieen a successful
teacher, and possesses requisites fitting him in
a remarkable degree lor imparting instruction.
He leaves inconsequence of an invitation to
a lucrative situation as Principal of a High
School in a Western city.
York * Cumberland Railroad.—The
Winter arrangement on this road commenced
last Monday. The advertisement will be found
in our columns this morning. It will be no
ticed that an alteration lias been made in the
time of running the trains,—leaving Portland
at 8 A. M. and 2 and 5.15 P. M ; and leaving
Saco river at 6.35 and 9.15 A. M. and 3.30 P.
M. The road is in good order, and is now do
ing considerable business. It would be the
best paying road in this State were its com
pletion pushed to the New^IIampshirc line.
An Interesting Convert.—Zion's Advo
cate relates an interesting scene that took
place at the 1st Baptist Church in this city on
Tuesday evening. It was the baptism of Wm.
Stevens, a Swede, who was awakened at the
Bethel in Philadelphia; and indulging a hope
in Jesus while on the voyage, determined to
ask baptism at the first port he should enter.
He related a deeply interesting religious ex
perience, and, as he was to leave in his ship in
a day or two, he was baptized at the close of
the weekly evening prayer meeting.
Nodiiead Apples.—Mr. J. T. Pike, of
Cornish, brought to our office yesterday a
bountiful supply of apples of the Nodiiead
variety, the largest and handsomest we have
yet sceu of this species. The taste of the
fruit is delicious. Mr. Pike has been very
successful in raising tbis fruit the past year,
and has sold large quantities of them in our
market. They can be found at the store of
Messrs. Johnson & Chenery, Congress street,
nearly opposite the Preble House.
ay-We have been requested to call the at
tention of the Street Commissioner to a nasty
hole which has been excavated on the south
side of Lime street, just below the Advertiser
office, and around which no railing or lamp
was placed last evening to guard pedestrians
from falling into it. Two gentlemen found
their way into it, and came to our office to
exhibit their clothing, which was in a sad
plight from the mud and filth into which they
stumbled.
Caution.—Some persons are going round
to the houses trviim to iret flour barrels, under
pretence of giving the prooeeds of them to a
poor family. If they cannot obtain them on
this pretence, they will offer ten cents a barrel.
This is all deception. These persons are pur
chasing or obtaining the barrels for speculation.
Messrs. J. B. Brown & Sons, at the Sugar
House, have been paring 25 cents per barrel,
and we believe they are paying that price now.
A Bold Larceny.—Yesterday afternoon
some thief opened the show-case at the door
of the store of Mr. John F. Hand, Clapp’s
block, Congress street, and stole therefrom
goods to the value of four or live dollars.—
This was rather a bold operation, on a small
scale, as theru were many persons in the store,
and others passing at the time the larceny was
committed.
Personal.—Z. K. Ilarmon, Esq., of the
law firm of Bradford & Harmon, is about to
remove, for a time, from tills city to Gloucester,
Mass., for the purpose of obtaining pensions
and back pay for soldiers engaged in the war,
and prosecuting claims upon the Government.
Mr. II. has had large experience in this busi
ness. We wish him much success in his new
place of business.
The Concert.—Our readers will not forget
the brilliant entertainment to be offered this
evening at the new City Hall, by Gottschalk
and Patti. The latter is the principal alar,
not tenor as our types had it yesterday, in the
Italian opera in New York, and possesses one
of the sweetest soprano voices we ever heard.
Reserved seats can be secured at the City Hall
to-day.
Mechanics’ Assemblies.—We learn that
these popular dancing parties will soon com
mence. Arrangements are making fora more
brilliant time, if possible, than ever before.
Heretofore these have been the most successful
“hops” of the season, and there is no reason
why the forthcoming series should not meet
with the same favor from the public.
M. C. M. Association.—The discussion on
the President’s proclamation of emancipation,
by the. members of the Mechanics’ Associa
tion. will be continued in the Library room
this evening, commencing at 7 1-2 o’clock.
The public are invited to attend.
Sir- Writing papers of all grades, and al
most every description of stationery have ad
vanced from thirty to sixty per cent. This is
owing to the scarcity and high price of stock,
and high rates of exchange. The prices are
still advancing,and no one can predict the limit.
It*ADiNos.—We learn that Prof. Briggs, of
Bowdoin College, will give the Ursl of a course
of Humorous and Dramatic Readings, in this
city next Thursday evening. In the intervals
he is engaged for Augusta, Bangor, &c.
sy Eight of the large guns, intended for
the lower embrasure of Fort Gorges, arrived
here yesterday. They will be mounted forth
with.
Mr. Church E. Gates of Calais, has j
been appointed 2d Lieut. Co. A, 7th Maine
regiment, now stationed at Camp Lincoln.

CniCAGO, Nov. 12.
A special dispatch from Trenton, Teun., of
the 10th, says the gram! army passed beyond
Lagramte yesterday evening. Our pickets
were six miles from Holly Springs, •ne hun
dred and Ally rebel cavalry were taken prison
ers during the day, with a Federal loss of two
killed and two wounded.
From a highly creditable source we learn
that the enemy have fallen hack.
A Letter from Holly Springs to the Mobile
Tribune says there are not one thousand blan
kets in Price’s entire army. Their blankets
and knapsacks were nearly ail thrown away
in the retreat from Corinth.
The Tribune also says: ‘'Bishop Elliot, of
Georgia, announces that the Union of the Dio
eesa of Texas. Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia,
the Carolinas and Virginia, is completed, un
der the name of the Protestant Episcopal
Church of the Confederate States of America.
The Arst general council will meet at Augus
ta, Ga., Nov. 12.”
A despatch from Gen. Hansom, at Fort Don
elson, yesterday, says:—"My command ar
rived here to-day. We have marched 150
miles, and had a Hglit with the rebel Wood
ward on tile 6th, and gave him grief. We
killed 16, wounded 40, captured 20 men, 100
horses and mules, a quantity of arms, and
drove him to the other side of the Cumber
land.

Destruction of a Cargo of Salt.
Fokthkss Monhoe, Nov. 11.
Peter Smith was brought to Fortress Mon
roe this morning, lie is implicated in the
burning of the ship AUeghaniau.
The Richmond Whig of the 10th, says, Van
Dorn lakes upon himself the responsibility for
the failure in his last battle at Corinth. He
says it arose neither (torn the fault of his offi
cers or men, hut was his own misfortune.
Gov. Brown's annual message was read in
the Georgia legislature last Thursday. He re
lers principally to topics of State interest. In
a special message lie takes ground against the
conscription law, and submits the subject to
the legislature lor its action.
The Whig says the excitement consequent
upon the reported advance of the abolitionists
on Holley Springs has subsided. They did
not come this side of Lamar, Miss.
The Raleigh, N. C., Register entertains no
doubt that a movement is to bo made against
the railroad running from Wilmington to
Petersburg, and that Weldon is to he the point
attacked. The inhabitants of Tarboro' and
the adjacent counties are running off as fast as
they can. The enemy, 12,000 strong, is within
15 miles of Scarboro.
The blockade™ off Wilmington, says the
Whig, tired upon and destroyed a hark loaded
with salt, while endeavoring to run the block
ade. Twenty-three Yankees came on shore to
finish the work of destruction, and were cap
lured and sent to Fort Fisher. The bark was
from Nassau. It also says that the Yankees
nave advanced in force upon Highland Coun
ty, Va., about 40 miles from Staunton. This
is a part of the plan by which the abolitionists
ex|iect to crush out the rebellion in Virginia.
The Richmond Enquirer of the 16lh, says:
Significant movements are progressing along
the entire line of Gen. Lee’s army. Startling
events seem to he rapidly approaching, prom
sing in reality a sharp ami decisive winter
campaign.
It is reported that Gen. Jackson was yes
terday on the verge of a battle in the Shenan
loah Valley, with greatly superior numbers of
the enemy.

needed small change.

Fortress Mon’rok. Nov. 11.
Col. Ludlow, of lieu. Dix's staff, returned
this afternoon from Aiken’s Landing, and has
very successfully completed the arrangements
lor the exchange of all prisoners of war.
In addition to officers, there are exchanged
about 24,000 privates, leaving a balance due to
the United States of about 0000 privates. The
place for exchanging prisoners, in pursuance
of the 7th article of the cartel, is changed
from Aiken's Landing to City Point.
It is rumored that Fort Darling has been
additionally strengthened by a heavy base
wall of solid masonry, and has received a
shroud of iron mail over the most exposed
portion.
A new earthwork has recently been thrown
up on Janies river by the rebels, near Point of
Shoals, intended for five guns of heavy calibre.
The Draft in Wisconsin.
ARREST OF RIOTERS.
Milwaukee, Nov. 12.
The Osaka County mob not content, with
destroying the draft box and rolls, attacked
the private residences of several prominent
persons, stealing and demolishing everything
they could lay hands on, and battering all w ho
refused to side with them. The Provost Mar
shall, with 000 infantry, left here on the steam
ers Sunbeam and Comet last evening, and to

Mr. Cohdcu has addressed his constituents
at liochdale. He spoke at length on the dis
tress of the Lancashire operatives, and regard
ed it as a national question, and said that it
public and private opinion hud proved insuffi
cient, parliament would have to make provi
sion. He referred to the American war, and
said it would be a waste of time for foreigners
to attempt to influence the combatants. To
interfere or recognize the South would do
more harm than good, and fail to bring for
ward cotton. As to iiow the contest was going
to end, he confessed his inability to form an
opinion, but if compelled to make a guess,he
w ould not make the same guess as that of Earl
Kussell and Mr.Gladstone. He did not believe
if the war should soon be brought to a termi
nation, that it would end by a separation of
the North and South. He thought those who
professed so much regard lor Italian unity,
ought to appreciate the same unity more in
America. Interference by force would do
more than anylhiug to strengthen the federal
government, and the cost to England in six
months would be more than sufficient to feed
the distressed cotton operatives 10 years. He
spoke of the extravagance of the Palmerston
government, and advocated retrenchment.

Commodore Wilkes’ proceedings at Bermu

ceeded their privileges. England must make
allowance for their temptations, and put her
self in their place before pronouncing judg

From the Army of the Potomac. “Carl
ton,” the correspondent of the Bostou Journal
writes from Bosler’s Cross Hoads,”says:
I atn writing by the fireside of a gentleman
who is lint, fully imlnicrl with Knnthxn t'ouliiwru
aiul after an hour’s conversation I have obtain
ed information enabling me to give you the
status of the Southern army. It is south of
tlie Rappahannock, with the exception of
Jackson's corps, which is now making its way
up tlie valley. Longstreet passed through
Chester Gap last week. Walker and D. II.
Hill went south from 1'eidinont to Culpepper
at the same time, vja Bosler’s cross roads.
Longstreet, he thinks, has about 50,000; Jack
son nut quite so many. The entire army is
estimated at eighty or ninety thousand. This
is tlie information, but all information here is
unreliable, and must be taken with liberal al
lowance.
The presence of a few troops in Manassas
Gap to-day, or in front of Ashby's day before
yesterday, is no indication that Jackson intends
to remain in the valley, but they are behind
covering bis retreat. 1 saw the constant move
ments of tlie enemy toward the South while
looking down from Ashby’s on Tuesday and
to-day. If I could get a glimpse from Man
assas Ridge I should doubtless sec Jackson's
train in motion. If we get to Culpepper first
we can close Thornton Gap against him, force
Longstreet, who doubtless is there, baek to
Gordonsville.cut the railroad and cut off Jack
son from Richmond. The movement is as ex
citing as one of Paul Morphy's games. Fair
weather, good roads, and ten days more—six
perhaps—will see a terrible stroke given to
the rebellion. It is the first exhibition of real
skill and genius we have had thus far. and I
am informed through two sources that to the
President belongs the honor of its conception.
The Machias Union is responsible for
the following:
> “A gentleman in an inland town tendered a
dollar bill to pay a charge of sixty cents, and
was gravely offered forty squash seeds to rep
resent the balance due him.”

IIL municipal and military authorities of those
Cities, 1 owns and Plantations from which the
lists required in General Order No. 48 of the 1st alt .
have not been returned to this office, are requested to
give their attention thereto, and cause the same to be
completed and seut to me bv mail forthwith.
The great labor of comparing these lists with tbe
records and rolls of this office.ln order to test tbe ac
curacy of so much as relates to members of Maine
regiments and corps, and compile the same for pub
lication, requires that they be sent to me immedi
ately.
Lists sent in after the 20th instant cannot be reodv
ed in season for publication; hence the Reports will
not exhibit tbe names of persons in the U. 8. Army
and Navy, and in Volunteer Regiments and Corpa
from other States, citizens of places whose antboil
ties neglect the duty required in General Order afbre
said. Gross injustice may accrue <o this class of oar
citizens, and their families, if a record is wanting In
their behalf. It is hoped that no efforts will be spar
ed on the part of municipal and military authorities
to comply with the order above mentioned, and the
instructions accompanying same.
