MATTERS ABOUT TOWN.
Supreme Judicial Court. CRIMINAL TERM.—FOX, J., PRESIDING. Saturday—The grand jury came iu and returned tweuty bills of indictment for various offences, among which was one for murder; one for breaking and entering a dwelling house with intent to commit larceny; two for com pound larceny; one for keepiug a house of ill-fame; two for uttering forged orders; seven for larceny; one for peddling without license; one for maliciously driving and using a horse; one for keeping a drinking house and tippling shop; one for being a common seller and one for adultery. The following arraignments took place: Jeremiah Kagan, breaking and entering a house iu Westbrook, with iutent to commit larceny. Plea not guilty. J. O'Donnell for the defense. Levi S. Given, compound larceny, in steal ing articles from the boarding house of Mrs. Charles. Plea not guilty. J. O'Donnell for the defense. John Stickney,(two indictments) uttering forged orders in the name of Kice * Co., Etna, on W. <fc C. R. Milliken. Plea not guilty. Daniel Ward, larceny of £40 from Mrs. Don ahue. Plea not guilty. J. O’Donnell for de fense. Joanna McGrath and Ellen F. Murphy. These are the clothes line thieves. Against them the grand jury found six bills of indict ment, to eacli of which they severally pleaded not guilty. J. O’Donnell appeared as their counsel. Broncas Oceney,compound larceny in steal ing articles from the house of S. B. Gowell in Cape Elizabeth. Plea not guilty. Broncas is a Corsican, and not understanding our lan guage. the plea was entered for him. Timothy Donahue and Elizabeth Treat, adultery. Plea not guilty, J. O’Donnell ap peared for Mrs. Treat. The traverse jurors will come ill on Tuesday, at whicli time trials will commence. Court adjourned to Monday at 2 1-2 o’clock, P. M. Among the prisoners at the bar was the lad Isaac Smith, indicted for the murder of the lad Jordan, hy pushing him into the water. Smith is a bright looking boy, and seems ut terly unconscious of having committed any great otfeuse, and is willing to plead guilty to murder or manslaughter. It will be a serious question both to Court and counsel what to do with this lad. The State prison does not seem to be the place to put such a hoy; he does not appear hardened enough for that; and yet something will liave to be done with him. We presume the whole character of the lad will be strictly enquired into, and the At torney General will make such disposition of the case as the ends of justice may demand. Arrest.—Saturday evening Deputy Mar shal lleald arrested Llewellyn Sawyer, who had been connected with Thomas W. Higgins in passing bogus money in Lewiston, Wales aud Waterville. Higgins was arrested at Lew iston altout four weeks since, but Sawyer made his escape and has beeu residing at Lawrence under the assumed name of John O'Brien. Last Friday lie returned to this city with the intention of being married on Sunday. Hcald learned that he was here and Saturday even ing called at the Portland House in Green street to make enquiries about him. While the Deputy Murshal was there, Sawyer slipped out of the dooi and made off; but Heald heard him aud gave chase, and arrested him in Port land street. On being arrested he said his name was Varney, and the officer must be mistaken; but on being taken to the lockup he acknowledged that he was Sawyer. He will be taken to Lewiston this morning. Purer last) Bexevoi^xt Society.—The anniversary exercises of this “ancient and honorable” institution of phiianthrophy, took place in the church of the First Parish last evening. The spacious house was well filled, and the services were of a deeply interesting Character. The introductory and closing prayers were offered by Kcv. Wm. It. Clark, of Chestnut Street Church, and the sermon was by Rev. E. C. Bolles, of the Universalist Church. His text was the words ot the Sa viour—“The poor have the gospel preached unto them,” and the discourse was an able, earnest aud forcible appeal for practical be nevolence. A collection of $100 was taken up iu aid of the funds of the society. car* We are informed that no loss than four different Hues of Euro|>cau steamers are to make this their winter port the present sea son, to wit: Allan's Royal Mail Line, Liver pool ; Allan's Line, Glasgow; Anchor Line, do.; Loudon Line, London.—the whole com prising fifteen vessels. The first steamer of the London Line, of which Messrs. Fin eh, Boyi> & Co. are agents, is expected hourly.— They arc also agents for a line of British ships, two of which are now in i>ort, the Wav erly, aud Mary Aim, Al, BUO tons each, of the “Canada Line.” The splendid iron ship “Queen of the Lakes," also consigned to them, left Liverpool for this port on the 15th ult. KEEr C'l-OSK to the Bcu.uixos.—Sucli is our advice to pedestrians if they would avoid being knocked over by the avalanches of snow from the roofs of buildings. The slope of the roofs will throw the snow to the middle or outside of the sidewalk. We noticed on Saturday afternoon, a few persons who were struck with “sudden astonishment” on being prostrated hy slides of snow.

Mr. Charles H. Fling opposed the measure, aud it was sup ported by Messrs. J. W. Stover, C. E. Jose and Otis Cutler. The discussion was animated and interesting. Without taking a vote upon the subject it was laid over until next Satur day eveniug for further discussion. Sleigh Bells.—We noticed Saturday and Sunday several vehicles driving through the streets without any bells beiug attached to the horses. The law requires that every sled or sleigh drawn by one or more horses shall have bells attached to the same, under a penalty for neglect, of from two to twenty dollars. The City Marshal informs us that he shall enforce this ordinance. Cleak yol’B Sidewalks.—it is the inten tion of the City Marshal to strictly enforce tlie ordinance relating to clearing the sidewalks from snow. Our citizens had therefore better see® it themselves rather than have a '‘greet ing” to attend the Municipal Court, and there be sentenced to pay a line of from two to ten dollars. Tempebance Assemblies.—The second of these popular assemblies takes place at Lan caster Hall to-morrow evening. The first oue was a brilliant atlair, there being some seventy five couples present. Chandler will prompt. Sailing of the Steameb.— Steamship Jura Bailed from this port for Liverpool about seven o’clock Saturday evening. She takes out 50 passengers and a full cargo. The American Illustrated papers for this week have been received at A. Robinson’s, No. 51 Exchange Street. \ TO THE Portland Daily Press. Surrender of Winchester to Gen. Geary. ROUT OF REBEL CAVALRY. Capture of K«-3m‘I Horses, 71 tiles, luid Flour. Citizens Request our army to remain at Winchester. Two and a half millions of Unsigned Certificates Stolen. New Yoke, Dec. 7. The Herald says it is stated that the Navy Department has received reliable information of the whereabouts of the Alabama, and that the Vanderbilt w ould immediately sail to look for her. The Herald has a Harper's Ferry dispatch stating that Gen. Geary with 3,000 infantry, twelve pieces of artillery, and fifty cavalry, marched upon Winchester on the 3d inst., and demanded its surrender, which was complied with, the people exhibiting many signs of joy at his arrival. He reports to Gen. Slocum that having left Harpei's Ferry on the 1st inst., he met the en emy's cavalry under White, Henderson and llaylor at/Jliarleston, and routed them, with some loss in wounded. He marched Into Berryville the same even ing, and again inet the enemy, drew him into a trap, killed live and wounded eighteen, and the same evening bivouacked three miles ltc yoml Berryville. Xvxt day he advanced be ,1 *1... 11...1 .i. el cavalry and infantry, and bivouacked in Ash Hollow, between Hcrryville and Win chester. Our troops captured 100 horses and mules, and several wagon loads ol' flour belonging lo the rebel army. At Winchester twenty-five rebels who were unable to escape were paroled. Seventy-live conscripts claimed protection, j which was granted. Five of our own prison ers were released. Gen. Geary, in pursuance of orders, then re turned to Harper's Ferry, though large dele gations of citizens begged him to remain.— ] Our only loss was one man slightly wounded. A special dispatch from Washington to the J Times says certificates of $5,000 each, to the amount of two and a half millions, huve been stolen from treasurer spinner's desk. Fortu nately they were unsigned, and measures have been taken to prevent the engraving of any more of the same kind. FROM THE ARMY OF THE POTOMAC. Snow Storm on Hit- Rappahan nock. Arriual of Gen. Jackson at Fredericksburg HB AIM} CARTERS AltMV OF POTOMAC, I Saturday. A. M., Dec. t). j On Thursday the rebels brought some field pieces to bear »u our gunboats lying in the Rappahannock, near Port Royal. A few shots from the boats upon them soon compelled them to withdraw their guns out of range. No harm was done. Yesterday the weather was anything but pleasant. In the morning it commenced raining, then hailing, and about noon snow set in, which continued rapidly until 10 o’clock last night. This morning there are about four inches of snow on the ground, and everything Is frozen up. Much complaint is expressed among army officers in reference to the large number of Brig. Gener als hanging around Washington with a view of getting appointed on Court Martials in or der to escape active service in the field. There is nothing new' from the other side of the river. The rebels have not changed their position. Hwapwwawnis Amt Potomac, j Last night was intensely cold, and some of the troops sullered for want of blankets, lee formed in the Potomac and Aquia Creek from one and a half to two inches thick. To-day the sun came out fair and cheering, hut the air continued piercing cold. The roads are liard and very rough. Officers well informed state that Jackson has arrived near Fredericksburg anil joined bis forces with those already there. They also report that the enemy have extended their lines further down the Rappahannock. The report that Maj. Spaulding, of the En gineer brigade, is under arrest for unnecessary delay in the transportation of pontoon trains from Washington, is unfounded. That officer lias been commended by his superiors for over coming weighty obstacles in executing his orders. There have liecn no field movements to-day. A Gallant anti Successful Affair. Capture of Rebels, Horses, Arms, Wagons and Camp Equipage Washington, Dec. 0. The following has been received at Head quarters : Charleston, I'a., .Yor. 27.—(’ol. Paxton, of the 2d Virginia cavalry, supported by the lltli Ohio infancy, yesterday made an attack on a post of the enemy near Cold Knobb, Greenbri ar County, on tin- 27th. It was a successful surprise, capturing two commissioned officers, one hundred nou-comraissioued and privates, one hundred horses, two hundred stand of arms, four wagons, and the camp equippage of a regiment. The wagons, equippage. and part of the arms were destroyed by Col. Paxton.— No loss on our side. On the day before a small scouting party' of the 8th Virginia infantry had a skirmish with the enemy’s cavalry. Our men were outnum bered and forced to retreat, though without serious loss.

From Memphis papers we learn that Gen. | Hovey’s expedition, 20,000 strong, which left 1 Helena, Ark., some days ago, landed at Friar's Point, some lilteen or twenty miles below, and marched to Grenada, Mi»s., and took posses sion of that place last Monday. A lorge num ber of tlie citizens of Grenada fled on the ap proach of our troops. The proprietors of the j Appeal moved his newspaper establishment to Marietta, Ga., before the Federal occupation of Grenada. The rebels burned about lilYeen or twenty locomotives and almost 100 cars. I . S, Senator Carlisle Requested to Resign. Emancipation Proclamation sustained by Gov. Pierpont. Wheeling, Ya., Dec. fl. Tlie State Senate to-day passed a preamble and resolution setting forth that Mr. Carlisle has violated the instructions of tlie body that elected him in failing to sustain tlie legitimate I efforts of tlie Government to suppress tlie in i surrection, in opposing by his votes and speech j es in and out of tlie United States Senate | means absolutely necessary to the preserva tion of tlie Union and enforcement of the laws, and in opposing the admission of the | new State of Western Virginia into the Union, ! and requesting him to resign his seat in the U. S. Senate. The resolution will come up in tlie House on Monday, and will probably pass by a large majority. 1:: the House to-day a i resolution was offered requesting tlie U. S. House of Representatives to pass tlie new | State bill now pending before it without alter ation or amendment. It will come up on Monday, and pass by a nearly unanimous vote. Governor Pierpoinl's message endorses the emancipation policy of President Lincoln. FROM WASHINGTON. Rebel Attack on tbe Steamer Dragon. Decision and Regulation of the Commis missioner of Internal Revenue. Resolution o( Representative Stevens. Washington, Dec. 6. Wednesday morning, as the Dragon, under command of Capt. Wright, was on her way to Port Royal, her engine broke down, and she w as forced to remain some hours near Borolus Rocks, about 25 miles up the river. A party of rebels, probably thinking that she was not armed, put off from the south side of the river in live or six boats, in which were about Ally persons, ami made towards the Dragon, but before they had approached too near, Captain Wright let fly a shell, which exploded in one of tlie boats, and they hastily turned ami pushed for the shore. With a glass the oliieers saw that they were all dressed in various uni forms, and wore probably aguei ilia baud. The Dragon was towed down by the Satellite, and this morning was brought to the Washington Navy Yard by the Resolute. The Commissioner of Internal Revenue has decided that the provision ol Section 77 of the excise law, providing for the taxation of yachts, is construed to apply only to vessels so known technically in the maritime language of this country, and to sueli ol that class as are used for racing or purposes of pleasure. The following regulation has been made by the Commissioner of Internal Revenue relat ing to agents of manufacturers:—The word “Agent,” us used in the 74th and 75th section of the Excise Aet is construed to mean either a person who is the exclusive agent of a man ufacturer or any person or Arm selling goods on commission designated by a manufacturer as liis agent for the sale of his manufactures. In all eases the manufacturer will he required to make known to the assessor or assistant assessor of the district the name and place of business of the agent so designated. Capt. J. A. Winslow is ordered to tlie com mand of the screw sloop Kearsage, vice Capt. Pickering detached and ordered home. Lieut. Commander Thornton has been ordered to the Kearsage, vice Lieut. Commander Thomas C. Harris, ordered home. Lieut. J. C. Weidmau lias been ordered to the Tuscarora, vice Lieut. Commander M. Patterson Jones orderedlimne. The above will take passage out on the Van uernnt. Lieut Commander John Waters, and Lieut II. W. Thomas have been ordered to the steam ship Mononguhelo. Lieut. Commander E. K. Owen has been detached from the James Adgcr and ordered to the Mississippi squad ron. The resolution of Representative Stevens denouncing as guilty of a high crime any person in the executive or legislative branch of tlie Government who shall propose to make peace, or shall accept or advise the acceptance of any such proposition on any other basis than the integrity and entire unity of the United States and the territories as they ex isted at tlie time of the rebellion, the consid eration of which has been postponed till Tues day week, will probably be fully discussed, as several members are already preparing to speak upon the subject. This resolution is not supposed to la' aimed at the Administra tion, as its position is known to be that no peace is admissable at tlie cost ot a single acre of tlie Union. The resolution of Mr. Vallandighain, pro posing a convention of the States, which is pending from the last session, will soon come up for cousideration iu tlie House. FROM CALIFORNIA* New Copper Mines in Hariposa County. Important Exploration on Tributaries of Columbia River. San Francisco, Dee. 5. Exports of treasure direct to Atlantic and European ports thus fur during tlie year 1602, are *12,000,1X10. Another copper mine has been discovered in Mariposa County, which is traceable for six miles. In some places the copper is from eight to ten feet deep. Tin- Nevada Hou.-(T of Assembly have unan imously passed a bill requiring mining corpo rations to have their offices in the territory, and giving foreign corporations six months to comply with the law. San Francisco, Dec. 6.

I .otter from the Maine Seventeenth. Camp of 17th Maine Reot. 1 near Fredericksburg, Va., Nov. 27,1S62. ) Mr. Klitnr: Sir:—I write to inform your readers of the death of 1st Lieut. Willard M. Jenkins of Co. B,of this Regiment. He died of typhoid fever at Edward’s Ferry, Md., upon the 20th of the present mouth. Iiis illness seemed at first of a comparatively trivial sort, being one of those bilious attacks to which nearly all our soldiers are liable before becom ing fully acclimated. From bilious intermit tent fever his illness changed to a severe type ol typhoid, hut when we left Edward's Ferry we fully expected that Lieut. J, would speedi ly recover and rejoin his company. The last mail brought us the sad intelligence of his death. The deceased was a member of the last class at Bowdoin College, and, as Ids friend and classmate, I feel called upon to offer a slight tribute of respect—unworthy though it he—to the memory of him witli whom I was so inti mately associated. Another sou of Bowdoin, and another of the officers of the 17th has fall en. not in battle, but a victim to disease, ever more fearful than the bullet or the sword More than half of tire class of '02 are now serv ing in tire army, anil as they are called upon to mourn the death of the second of their number who lias fallen a victim to this rebellion, they will doubtless remember the virtues and for get the faults of those who can wield the sword no more. But, Classmates, let us fight on, re membering that he who live* U honored and he who dies thrice honored. Classai ate. Geo. Brown, editor of Toronto Globe, has recently led to the hymeneal altar, the daughter of Mr. Nelson, the famous Edinburg publisher. This young lady is said to briug her husband a dow ry of $120,000. Mf~The Newbureport Herald says the lar gest owl ever killed ill that neighborhood was shot a few days since by John Kent of Newbury. It was a big grey Arctic owl, measuring live feet and one inch from tip to tip of wings. rir-v new and exceedingly simple method of dealing with breaehy horses is mentioned in the Iowa Homestead. It is only necessary to bore the animal's ears ami tie them togeth er. “A horse jumps as moch with his ears as with his feet,” says the Homestead, “and un less lie can have free use of his ears, he cannot jump.” It may Ik- so! English politicians aie in the habit of insisting that we have territory and population enough for two or perhaps more nations, on the European scale—that is, some lory politi cians do tliis. But what superfluousbulk dis graces the British Empire when referred to the same standard! An empire embracing nearly thrice the area, and seven ti nies the population of all our states and territories. The St. Louis Republican understands that the assessm -nt, under a recent order to raise #500,000 from southern sympathizers in that city, has been in the main completed, it has heard a number of names of prominent citizens mentioned as being on the lists, aud ot sums ranging from #30 to #5000 affixed to them; though it is not deemed prudent to give publicity to any of these names at pres ent. 2 An otlieer of the 17th Maine regiment sends us the following items of encouraging news from their camp near Fredericksburg: “Our regiment lias been here a week, and we see no -igns of moving. As yet there is no talk of winter quarters, however. The roads are excellent, the rainy season having been evidently delayed for our benefit. 1 can give no estimate as to numbers, but an im mense force is concentrated at this point, cau tiously grinning at a by no means contempt!- i ble army across the river.” Parson Brownlow writes from Xash ville as follows: I cousider Tennessee virtually hack in the Union, for I consider that the rebels are pre paring to leave the State and goSouth. They are taking their property, and especially their negroes. They are going .South by thousands. Tlie loyal Tennesseeans arc wishing that they may all go, and 1 hear no complaints made against the emancipation proclamation—not half of tlie opposition that there is in Ken tucky. Indeed. Tennessee is a more loyal Mate to-day than Kentucky, the opinion of the Ken tuckians to the contrary notwithstanding. And for the holding of Tennessee, Gov. Johnson alone deserves all the credit. Speculation is rife in Skowhegan, if we may trust tlie Somerset Farmer. “Noigh lioi G.,” it seems sought to tempt “neighbor E.” with a premium of 7 or 8 per ccut., for ten dollars worth of silver change. E. was coy, till he noticed “something green” in G's hand, when he suddenly changed his note and con cluded to sell. G. went away rejoicing and sold his silver at a premium of 18 per cent., while honest hut -ly E. converted the treasury note received from his sharp neighbor into current hills on tlie Somerset Bank, at a pre mium ot only “7 per cent.!
