THE DAILY PRESS.
PORTLAND, MAINE - Thursday Morning, February 12, 1803. __—-.•♦♦»« —- — The Portland Daily Press has the largest regular circulation of any daily paper in the oity. Necessity for Organization. Union League.—An organization known at the Union League lias been formed in Phi ladelphia, and a Hue private mansion lias been taken for a club bouse. The Bulletin savs the league is made up of men of unquestioned loy alty, and on it* roll are to be found the names of Democrats as well as Republicans. It in cludes many of the solid men of Philadelphia, and its officers are such as will be sure to com mand respect and coutldence. Hon. Wm. M. Meredith is President, and Messrs. Wm. H. Ashurst, Horace Binney, Jr., John B. Myers, and A. E. Borie are Vice Presidents. The league is uot to be a political Institution, but It will be a rendezvous where men true to the Government may meet on common ground, and interchange views, undisturbed by those of doubtful loyalty. The above paragraph Is going the rounds of the loyal press, and we admire its spirit and commend it to the attention of all loyal men. The enemies of the Government were never more active than at the present time. Trea aon is not confined to the seceded States. All through the North the disloyal element shows itself. Whether it is on the increase or not, there is no question of the fact that disloyalty is assuming an unwonted boldness, and lifts it head in both high and low places. It carps at .every measure of the government put forth to sustain itself aud to crush out rebellion. It constantly prophesies evil and defeat. It in sists that “the war forced upon us by the dis unionists of the South,” is a mere abolition war. Is appeals to the sordid avarice of the people against taxation, and to wicked preju dices against the African. It sneers at bold, vigorous and energetic Generals, and worships those and those only who are supposed to have no sympathy for the administration. It de nounces Abraham Lincoln as a despot, and complacently smiles on Jeff. Davis, and speaks of his wonderlul talents. It denounces Geti. Butler, and every old Democrat who goes for crushing the rebellion at all hazards. It talks of peace, and suggests compromises. It ap proves inactivity, and scowls at vigor. It de nounces abolition, but has not a harsh word fjr secession. Such are some of its manifesta tions. Is it not important that the activity of falsehood and the zeal of disloyalty should be checkmated by a still greater activity and zenl on the part of those who ask only that truth, aud right, and justice may prevail ? In a word, is it not demanded of all loyal men, that they organize their efforts to correct the errors of public sentiment, to increase the apirit of uncompromising loyalty, and to quicken the circulation of truth ? Why should not Portland, and all other large towns and cities in the state, contain efficient organiza tions, not on a mere party basis, but on the basis of unconditional Union, of unwavering aupport of the administration in its wai policy and measures, and of sworn resistance to all settlement of our present difficulties except upon the basis of unconditional submission to the authority of the Constitution and laws,and fidelity to our common flag? It was while men slept that the enemy sowed tares. “Eter nal vigilance is the price of liberty."" States have been nearly loft to the loyal cause through the inactivity of loyal men. A deter mined enemy is wide awake, zealous, active, bold, defiant and unscrupulous. Shall it be op posed by equal zeal and vigor? Gem Dow at New Orleans. The despatches from New York yesterday morning, among other things said: Col. Neal Dow is st New Orleans expecting a command in advance. He has been cited to appear in the District I’ou11 to answer to steal ing silver ware, sugar, Ac., valued at $1000, be ivugiu£ *aj t-iwiiCUD ui m r i um. We have before us a copy of the New Or leans Picayune of Jail. 20, brought by the same steamer that brought the above item of news in relation to (Jen. Dow from New Or leans, in which the “stealing” charge is fully explained. It seems that Bradish Johnsou of New York, has brought a suit to recover for the seizure of certain property by officers act ing under Gen. Dow. He sets forth that lie is now and has been for many years, the own er of a piaulalion about fifty miles below New Orleans; that on the 6th of Sept., in the ab sence of the pltf., the steamer Avery, in charge of Capt. W. B. Snell, of Co. B, 13tb Maine ; Reg-, with a force under his command, stop|>ed j at said plantation, and took therefrom twenty four hogsheads of sugar, and sundry other ar ticles. It is furthermore averred, “that these | illegal, wanton, oppressive and unjustifiable I acts ol Capt Snell and the officers under his | command, were perpetrated under a verbal or < secret order of Neal Dow, who was then a i brigadier general in the service of the United States, and then in command of Forts Jack- \ son and St. Philips, and who by secret orders, | u naulhorized by his superiors or by any pro- i vision of law martial, or by any requirements ] growing out of a state of war, wantonly abus- , ed the power, and inflicted upon the petitioner | the wrongs which he herein complains of, ] and for the reparation of which the laws of ( the United Stales and of this State hold him personally responsible.” ! The sugar thus taken, it is acknowledged, | has been recovered in part, and lor the re- | mainder and the other property alleged to i have been taken, the pltf. claims $1611 26. 1 He prays that Gen. Dotv may be cited to a pi , pear and answer to the case and, after due i proceeding shall be had, that fce be condemned i to pay the amount claimed,with interest, costs Ac. A copy of the citation has been served on Gen. Dow, and, so far as our information goes, here the matter rests. We learn from other sources, that when 1 Gen. Dow went to Louisiana he found planta tions abandoned and liable to pillage, and he i took pains to secure exposed property, and to save it from waste, and while small articles ' were freely appropiated for the accommoda tion and use of bis men, such property as could not be thus used was secured, subject to be disposed ofby the Government. That Gen. Dow has acted as an honest, vigilant servant of the . loyal government should act, no one acquaint- « ed with him will doubt for a moment. < I General Butler’s Military Achieve- . meets.—It appears that Mr. Alliboue is col- , lecting materials for a new work, the second volume ol his “Dictionary of Authors" remain- , ing in abeyance. At least that is the interpre tation we put upon the following anecdote, copied from the Philadelphia Inquirer of Ihe 9th instant: A gentleman of our city, well known in the literary world, with a view to preparing bio graphical sketches of our most prominent military leaders for future publication, recent ly forwarded circulars to the Major Generals and Brigadiers ol' our army. One of these was received by Geu. Butler, requesting him to dll up the annexed blanks with his birth place and age, together with the most rental k able events in his military career. In a few days it was returned with his birth-place and age properly set forth, and with the blank de voted to military exploits containing the fol lowing : “I have done everything I was told to do.” Our Schools. It is plain, that the school system of Maine is in a state of transition. The old sytfcem, which hits answered so well the needs of a sparse population, mostly engaged In laborious occupations, is gradually giving way to the demands of a riper civilization — demands growing louder from year to year in the ex pression of a widespread and increasing dis satisfaction. Tlds important subject, doubly important during this process of change, is discussed in the Ninth Aimual Report of the Superintendent of Common Schools, under six heads: 1. The Schools and the Rebellion. 2. Our Glory and Shame, under which the merits and defects of the present system are bandied. 3. l’roper Studies of the Common Schools. 4. The District System. 6. Normal Schools. 6. Special Topics. Under each of these heads, except the first, will be found a methodical and instructive ab stract of the school returns of town officers. The number of reports of supervisors and school committees forwarded to the Superin tendent has been much larger than ever before, though the existence of a law making this re quirement seems not universally known. A single question in the blanks issued Ia4l year, “What are the great hindrances in your town, to tlie progress and prosperity of your schools?” has drawn out a very full expres sion of the prevalent dissatisfaction already alluded to. The general complaint is of poor school houses and incompetent teachers. A suggestion of the Superintendent on the first jKrnit should Dy all means be adopted. The present law provides, that “a plan for the erec tion or reconstruction of a school house, vot “ed by the district, shall first lie approved by “the superintending school committee. The Superintendent recommends the addition of tlie words, “and by a lioard of three well edu cated physicians,” as ail amendment. To correct the evils arising from incompetence of poachers, the establish incut of at least two normal schools is necessary. Massachusetts lias four, and the four are unable to sppply the demand for professionally educated teach ers. It is superfluous to resort to argument in support of the self-evident proposition, that some special training is needed lor a teacher as much, tossy the least, as fora horse. A teacher lassoed and brought wild into a school-room, is a very dangerous animal. Some general modification of the district system must be made in time, as has been done already in our cities ami larger towns. This movement however is but just beginning. Tin independent districts and rare academics must still serve the more thinly populated sec tions of the State. It would be well if the State would take in hand the endowment of academies, in accordance with a settled policy of maintaining them where, and only where, they are needed as a supplement to the district schools, and there maintain institutions deserv ing their honorable name. What is called lo cal enterprise lias given ns an abundant crop of mushroom academies, often under the instruc tion of college undergraduates, and all indis -.'“"'J VMM. W.VM Iiiiunuti *iu IIIC OUHV. But who shall decide upon the loratiou of academies worthy of a liberal support? This question brings us to the last and by far the most important suggestion in the Su perintendent's Report. He recommends the organization of an articulate State system of education, under the general su|iervi*ion, sub ject to wise regulations, of a Superintendent of Public Instruction. His office at the Capi tol is to be the center of educational operatians; a special Commissioner of Public Instruc tion in each county or Congressional district, is to report to the Superintendent; and in i each town a School Committee,performing all Ihc duties now shared with agents and select- < men, is to report to the Commissioner of the I listricL Such is the plan recommended by :he present Sii|ierintendcnt, after three years’ lervice in this department—apian already idopted in its essential features, and in sue- ' •essful operation, in Pennsylvania and New Pork. This is the plan, which must in time ‘ Ming order out of the chaos of the present llsjoiutcd system, if system it can be called. 1 'or a single illustration ol the disadvantages j inder which our schools now labor, cousider ^ lie mischief and confusion w hich spring from he selection of text books by each separate ‘ ■omiuiitce throughout the Stale. It would be * oraething to have uniformity, even If the * looks were no better; but they would be bet- t er if the selection were left to a capable State c 'Ulcer, raised above the influence of publish es and their agents. The embodiment of this Ian in a judicious law will lie a w ork of great lelicacy. needing time, patience, and wise pru- ] lence. It will be an unwise prudence which hall induce the present Legislature to neglect l altogether. A Rebel in the (7. S. Senate. The United States Senate commenced a I ;ood work when it expelled the rcliel members 1 rom Missouri, Indiana and other States, nit it did not finish the work. Mr. Pow- J 'll of Kentucky—the colleague of the trai or Breckinridge—should have been cut adrift vith the others. He boldly enunciates doc- J rines in that body of the most obnoxious <i haracter, and seta at defiance all the propric- * ies of the place. Yet he is a “bright pnrlicu- * ar star” in the galaxy of modern Democracy, ,* ml not a word of reproof of bis course is leard from the journals of that party. The i .ouisviile Journal takes him in hand, and cores him alter this wise: I In the midst of these hostilities, whilst the « iouthern •Kebcls are exasperated to utter naduess and ferocity, he would cast the Uni- f ed States paralyzed at their leet to he made r he victim of whatever exactions and outrages heir passions and their interests might die- | ate. it is a most revolting consideration that i mail holding this |K>sitioii also holds a posi- 1 Ion in the Senate of the United States, receiv ng his salary from the United States Treasii y. Mr. Dowell's disloyalty, his sympathy vitli traitors, his devotion to the cause of re lelllon, was as well known and as easily prov d as that of any Secessionist in Kentucky. iVe are not aware that he denied it unless in I ague and evasive words. He is at this nits Itent as unlit to be a inemlier <>( the Senate of 1 nir country as any man in the Hebei Congress j vould lie. We do not wonder at his refusal r 0 resign; he would probably resign if he did lot suppose that he could serve the Southern onfederacy more effectually in our Senate 1 hail he could out of it. The I<ewistou Journal will not admit lie disloyalty of the editor of the Augusta ig», and vindicates him as follows: “Daniel r himself don't believe what lie writes now. 4 At heart be is as true a patriot as be was ( when lie denounced with such vigor and em- j phasis the treasonable schemes of the men, s with whom the supposed exigencies of party J now induce him to strike hands. He is a 1 good man, is Daniel, but easily led away by n 'evil political associates.” This is vindicating 1 man’s patriotism at the expense of his honor uid veracity, and we think Daniel will puusc icfore. he decides which most to admire, a dis- * lonest and lying patriot, or a truthful and tonust traitor!

K7” The Augusta Age, in its anxiety to say something smart, pokes its nose into the private business matters of the Press, and does it in a way to show its utter ignorance of the facts which it preteuds to give. We had sup posed that in all such matters, the parties most directly interested should be allowed to make their own statement. • The Machias Union has taken on a new wrinkle. It blazons Its column head with extracts from Republican papers approv ing the President’s proclamation and the re moval of McClellan. The Union intends to run hcrealtor, we infer, on the triple track of defense of slavery, defense of McClellan, and opposition to the war. The Bath Times says “the span of horses belonging to Col. E. K. Harding, took (right while coming down High street on Monday last, and became unmanageable. The driver jumped out, and the horses dashed down Pine street, and brought up against the house of Mr. Jones. The horses were some what bruised, but not materially injured.” Charles C. Burr was recently in Phila delphia anil made a speech at a democratic meeting, and the Press of that city says the following atrocious language was received with applause. Said Burr: “The members ol the Ailir.iuisration are not lit to tie boot-blacks for my honorable auditors. Abraham Lincoln is a greater traitor than Jefferson Davis. What lias Jeff Davis done? He has merely infring ed upon our territorial jurisdiction. He has not struck at the Constitution.” Tile Bangor Times says that on Mon attached, while furiously dashing dow n Main Street, ran into another team, laying the latter horse flat, and causing the sled to turn com pletely bottom side uppermost. Neither horse was seriously damaged, but a Mr. Watson, of Parkman, who was driving, was thrown out, run over, and was taken up for dead. It was, however, ascertained that though seriously bruised and cut about the face and bead, his injnries would not be likely to prove fatal. jy The gentlemen who attempted the re cent demonstration in the Common Council, seem unwilling to admit that there is nny dis loyalty in this city. Suppose a case. Suppose a consequential citizen should say, in the pres ence of a uuinlier of his fellow-citizens, that he wished all the army officers would resign and come home! Supose he should be told that such an act would probably place us all under the rule of Jeff Davis. Suppose to this he should respond, “0, Jeff lfacis is a pretty rlecer sort of a man,”—what do our sensitive friends of the Common Council say to such suppositions? Would they suggest the idea of the slightest disloyalty! jySenator Nesmith of Oregon—a Maine boy, by the way—is a bit of a wag. In speak ing in the senate recently of the necessity of more discipline, vigor and activity in the army and the evil of having so many officers off du ty, he said: “We see thousands of them about the streets here, and in Willard’s Hotel they are tucked up in featiier Itetis like heroes with their martial cloaks around them. Some one told me that he threw a rock at a lame dog at Willard's the other night, and knocked down two Brigadier Generals; and it was not a good night for Generals either!’’ jy*The Augusta Age has our thanks for* informing the nuinourous readers of its tri weekly, that “the mooted question as to which newspaper in the State has the largest circu lation,’’ has been settled by "the powers that be” “in favor of the Portland Press, in the case of Capt. Bachclder, of Co. B, 3d Maine Regiment.” The Age very truly says, “the finding and sentence ol the Court Martial in his case having been ordered ‘to be published in the newsp iper of the largest circulation, in the .'stale, of Maine, they are* it seems, publish ed in the Press official)'.” We again thank the Age for its kindness and courtesy. Such a display of these qualities towards a political opponent is truly refreshing. Ey We hope to be pardoned for briefly vindicating a former stateineut. The Adver tiser takes exceptions to our notice of its im provements, and denounces as a "misstale uieut” the remark we made* about the large space devoted to reading matter in the Press compared with that of the Advertiser. Now ; we did not speak at random, nor do we in i what follows. In yesterday's Advertiser, [ measuring the headings, editorials, selections, j telegraphic, advertisements, markets and all, there were exactly 182 1-2 inches in leugth of columns tilled with new matter—matter set up for that number. In the Press of the same day there were, tilled with new matter, 2V2 inches, or a difference, not of thirty or forty jwr cent, ns we stated, but of more than sixty per cent ! This is a simple tact, aud with such a fact repeated daily to all who will compare the two papers, we do not feel disposed to multiply words, or to contribute to an angry controversy. In relation to the matter of the Advertiser being vastly better than that of the Press, we will only say tiiat we do not doubt it, the editor of tiiat paper bciug the judge. That the Advertiser gives mure solid matter thun we do is very possible, but thu reader well understands that solid matter is the mere selections, aud not that which is pre pared expressly for the columns of the pa|ier. We don't know us “Timothy Titcomb”—Dr. Holland—will feel complimented by having it stated that the Advertiser is made after his style; but we do feel quite confident that it is not so much form as brains that has given to the Sprluglleld Republican its wide reputa tion. BY TELEGRAPH -TO THE EVENING PAPERS. The Alabama at Kingston in a Damaged Condition—The Pirate Probably Blockaded by IT. 8. Gunboats. New York. Feb. 11. A few days before the steamer North Star sailed from Key West, a communication was received hf Rear Admiral Bailey, from our Consul General in Havana, in which he stated that he had just received a telegraphic dis patch from the United Stated Consul at Trini dad de Cuba, saying that an English brig had arrived from Kingston, Jamaica, witli the in formation that tlie Alabama readied that port on the UOtli 11 It., and hud landvd the remaining officers and crew of tile United States steamer Hatteras, sunk off Galveston, over 100 in number. It was further reported that the Alabama had suffered severely in her tight with the Hatteras; that she hud live shots in her hull, one of which, that went through tier stern post, was a very bad one. She put into Kings ton to repair damages, and expected to be ready for sea in four days. No mention was made in the dispatch of the number killed and wounded on either side, consequently we are as much in the dark as ever w hom the sur vivors are. It is not at all improbable that the Alabama suffered materially In loss of men, for the lire of the Hatteras appears to have been well directed and her battery admirably served. Immediately upon this news beinj^reoeivod in Havana, the United States steamers Wa chusctls and Oneida sailed direct for Kings ton, and the Santiago de Cuba and R. R. Cny ler, then on the south side of Cuba, were or dered at once to the same port, and the Tioga and Sonoma were also steering iu the same direction. From Apalachieola—Apprehensions for the Safety of our Vessels. New York, Feb. 11. A Key West correspondent stales that the U. S. steamers Somerset and Port Royal are at Apalachicola, and (’apt.
