THE DAILY PRESS.
PORTLAND MAtNR Friday Morning, March SO, IW3. ...—-■<»•»».. .... The circntation of the Daily Pres* is larger than that of any other daily in the city. Tbr*».—SH OO a year if paid trtffciti throe months from Ike, date of subscription, or *7.00 at the end of thoyoar. jy-On the first page wlU be found a capi tal tetter from Philadelphia; on the fourth, a •lie descriptive pcew, “The Orchestra,” and miscellaneous selections. We give this morn ing a ftiH account of the amendments to the Internal Revenue law, to the unavoidable ex clusion of much interesting matter prepared for to-day’s Press. Our report of yesterday's proceedings In the Legislature came at so late an hour last night that we can only make an abstract of them. Emancipation. Revolutions never move backward. We are in the midst of one of those stormy epochs of change, which have received that name of terror. Whether we like It or not, the storm Will exhaust its fury, deaf to all complaints or expostulations. Tire slowly gathering po litical fortes, which have burst forth in this moral tempest, are as little subject to human control as the elements of nature. Who would hate ventured to predict two years ago, that within twenty-four months slavery would be abolished in the District of Columbia, the Goterameut of the United States pledged to furnish pecuniary aid to any State which shall voluntarily free its slaves, an emancipation legislature elected in Missouri on this very question, an emancipation party openly can vassing Kentucky, Tennessee. Maryland, Del aware and Western Virginia, and still more • trange, a proclamation issued by the Execu tive Head of the Governuu nt, such a procla mation as the second Adams foretold, and in those days no one denied its constitutionality —a proclamation ot emancipation thiongliout all the South, except in the States just named, issued hr h war iiunsnre and li«u ked hv the en tire military and naval force of the country 1 No Abolitionist even,so much as dreamed of these great aud suddcu changes, when the war began. Ouly a lew men then beard the doom of slavery on this continent in the booming of the ftist gun tiled in anger, saw it in the first plash ol blood shed in civil war, and to them its late seemed still remote. Still let* did the Republican party coulempiate • uch a revolution. They claimed the light to elect their own candidate, unmoved by tin eats lroin whatever quarter. They claimed the right peacvlully, at the ballot box, to throw their iiitiutHice in lavorot freedom aud against slavery in the Territories. With their mo ti ves we have nolhiug to do. Some of them believed slavery criminal, many uuprofltab!e> a ud yet others acted with the parly in a spirit of defiance to the noisy threats of the South er n disorganized—»illiug, il the peaceful elec t ion of a Northern President, Was to he made a pretext lor rebellion, to meet the danger then. They exercised a freeman's privilege, a nd were prepared to maintain a freeman's right to vole freely. That was all. Aud yet, see whither two In let years have brought us! See how steadily the wind and current set in th e same direction still! “Slavery,” says the St. Louis (Mo.) Democrat of the Dili instant, “is hut a minor interest in this State, and it H will not be pel milted to stand in the way of “ greater ones. It lias ridden upou the shoul *'ders of the Slate loo long already, aud must “ come dow n.” The appraisers of the proper ty of Charles Carroll, late of Carroll couuly, in Marylaud, assessed the value of 130 slaves at an average of ouly ,/fre dollars. Dealers are shy of this uneeilain propel ty. Even in Biclmioud, the price ol the best servants ex hibits hut a slight advance, while gold com mands a premium ol *250 per cent., and almost all other articles of trade have gone up in pro portion. The Republican party is not responsible for all this. That party was fixed in unalterable but Constitutional opposition to the further extension of slavery. It claims the high praise of maintaining firmly and yet temperately that attitude, filuchiug before no threats and ac cepting without lear all the consequences. Most assuredly the party did not seek war, did uot seek to interfere with the reserved right of (states to regulate their domestic in stitutions; hut it did uot shrink from war, w ben presented as an alternative to the sur render of principles, and It will not shrink from the apparition of emancipation, which looms before us so suddenly. That must also be accepted, as one of the couseque ces of tbe inevitable conflict. That result will be wrought out, whether we will or not, in some form. It is the duly of our statesmen, to see to il that the Republic sufier no detriment from this great social revolution; to lend au attentive ear to the teachings ol' history, since the be ginning of this century; to shorten, so far as lu them lies, the journey through the wilder ness to this promised land of peace. The cur rent of events drifts irresistibly towards eman cipation. We cannot check the operation of the social forces thus at work; we can and we must bring the ark of our government to her . moorings by that lolly summit rising above ' tbe flood, not with a rude, disastrous shock, rending asunder the stout planks and timbers wbicb carry all we lioid dear, but warily, with anxious care, and salt-Iy graduated movement Town Elections. Freeport.—Mi< ah btockbiidge, Modera tor; Edwin C\Townsend,Town Clerk; Micab Stockbiidge, Nathan 0. True, Edward I’ratt, Jr., Selectmen, Assessors and Overseers of the Poor; Samuel A.

Kittery.—Tlie election of town officers in this town came off on Monday the 18th. The following list of officers, all republicans, were chosen by from 40to 50 majority: Moderator, John Wentworth; Town Clerk, Daniel P. Hutchings; Selectmen and Assessors, John Wentworth, Charles Duncan and Warrington Paul: Treasurer, Thomas Hurd; Town Agent, Oliver Cutis. The vole was the largest ever cast in this town at aSpriug election, notwith ■taudiug some 75 to 100 of our voters are away iu the army. SJT Hr. Smith of Westbrook, seems to have beeu extremely unfortunate in tbe choice of language in his recent seven hour’s speech.— The republicaus have been accused of misrep resenting him, and now we And his employees taking the Chicago Times—a paper of his own stripe, copperhead all over—to task for misun derstanding him. The Times uuderstood Mr. Smith to desire the disruption of the Union that Maine may become an adjunct of Canada. If tbe Times hud uuderstood Mr. Smith to de rite disruption thut Canada may become an adjunct of Maine, perhaps it would not be Charged with misunderstanding. IP Senator Foot, of Vermont, has refused to accept his share of the third mileage voted to Itself by Congress. The Internal Revenue Law. The act passed by the late Congre**, to amend the Internal Revenue Law, contains some important provisions and modiAcations Which are of interest to the mercantile com munity. Section sixty-four of the old law is amended in the thirty-eighth paragraph as follows: Insurance agents shall pay ten dollars for each license.

Augusta, March 19, 18&5. The annual session of the Legislature evi dently draws toward a close, and two sessions a day are held. Yesterday the National Ite solves came up in the Senate by assignment, and Mr. Wiggln, of York, commenced a speech adverse to their passage. Not more than two thirds of the members remained in their seats, and the chamber was graced with but few spectators—perhaps half of them la dies. Mr. Wiggin’s eloquence was expended, evidently, upon an unappreciative audience. It was not so much his fault as the fault of his subject. Mr. Wiggin is really a good looking man—perhaps he would be called a handsome man—and his voice is pleasant, aud he speaks not without power, but still evidently felt the pressure of an up-hill labor. It was the old story, faultfinding aud complaining, in utterly dolorous accents, because men who are con stantly finding fault with the Government, and with the policy of the war, are not believ ed by loyal men to be in earnest in their pro fessions of devotion to the government, and are not received into that cordial communion which can exist only where there is heart-felt sympathy. Mr. Stewart, of Somerset, one of the keenest members of the Senate, took copi ous notes of Mr. Wiggin's remarks, and will probably I'olldV him iu a few days. He will also reply to u hat little there was left of F. O. J. Smith by your Mr. Kingsbury, at the same time. Permit me to say, however, that he will iiave little labor in that direction, for Smith was whittled down by Kingsbury till he appeared very much like the “little end of notning.” In the House quite a sparring match came off on the question of a conditional grant of land to the Maine State Seminary, in which Messrs. Blake of Bangor, Gunnison of Scar boro, Crosby of Dexter, and others participat ed. Mr. Gunnison was the foremost man, ap parently, in favor of the grant, and he put his arguments with much force, and with great felicity of expression. Mr. Gunnison is a yonng man, a leader of the opposition politically , but he commands the full attention of the House, and his re marks upon the importance of fostering edu cation—the education of the conunou people— ■wiu m? rui|iii.uiv; luiiipumriH lu.icn i.ii^ianu, and to her loyalty becuuxe of her superior education, and his equally emphatic declara tion that, but for the ignorance of the masses of the South there would to-day be no rebel lion, did not fail to elicit applause, not only from the lobbies, but from the body of the House. If Mr. Gunnison never wanders ' farther from the truth than he did in his brief speeches on the occasion referred to, he will do houor to his constituents. Tlie Agricultural College question is one of (be questions before the Legislature. Great effort is being made to connect it with W’ater ville College; but this is opposed by Bowdnin College influence, and, it is said, by the farm in(j» interests. Prof. Smyth represents Bow doin, and he contends that the college should be kept independent of any existing institu tion. Xkkxks. New Publications. Meditations on Death and Etebnitt.

Two Fbiends. By the suthor of “ The Patience of Hope "and “ A Present Heaven.” Boston: Ticknor & Fields, ltimo. pp. 107 For sale in this city by H. L. Davis. This is the latest work by Miss Dora Green well, which has appeared in this country, though her American publishers have in press a volume of poems by the same author. Miss Greenwcll has already achieved a reputation in Kngtand and America as a writer of deep Christian feel ing and rare delicacy of expression. She is not a logical writer The plan of the present work, a series of dialogues between two friends, affording opportunity for the half utterance of intuitions touching the profoundest subjects of human coutemplation, suits admirably her habits of thougt. We look with interest for the forthcom ing jKiems, expecting to find them rich in devo tional feeling and not without grace of well cho sen words, yet tearing to find them blurred by a certain fatal indistinctness of conception. Tactics ; or, Cupid in Shoulder Straps. A West Point Love Story. By Heartou Drills, U.8. A. New York: Carlcton. l'Zuio. pp. UM. Mr. Carieton has published some excellent books of late—novels by Charles Reade, Antho ny Trollope, and Ruflini, translations of Miche let’s recent works, the extravaganzas of “ Ar teinas Ward” and “ Orpheus C. Kerr,” &c.,— but “ Tactics” is a great mistake. The forlorn joke of substituting Article for Chapter in the subdivisions and adopting in some obscure, usu ally inscrutable, metaphorical sense such mot toes as “ Alignments in Open Rauks,” drags wearily through the book, which is not even written in good English. “ She knew well enough who he wanted," is an instance of acon struction which occurs too frequently to be attributed to accident. “ He put one strong arm around her, and swam to the beach; when reached he found her almost lifeless." The wri ter of that sentence is no swimmer, but admit ting the feat to have been performed in this o<ld way, who or what is it that was reached—the gentleman, the lady, or the beach? The volume is dedicated to the “ flag of our great Union,” " Whose stars benign illumine our dark night, Where rusli the cohorts like a mountain lorreut prom every sacred ntrAr iu our bruad land” l Even one cohort rushing from a niche must afford a singular spectacle. Court Martial.—Yesterday the case of Eben Al. Field of Windham was concluded. The counsel for defense offered his argument in writing, followed by a powerful oral argu ment by John Neal, Esq., for the Government. The Judge Advocate then, in the absence of the defendant's counsel, made a few remarks in behalf of the prisonei, in which lie alluded to the unpatriotic state of feeling iu a town not more than an hour's ride from Portland, which could harbor a deserter from the army of the Union tor the space of six or seven months, in severe terms. After this case was disposed of, that of Alonzo Spaulding was taken up, for carrying liquor into the regi mental hospital and giving it to a patient, and for drunkenness on guard at Cainp Abraham Lincoln. He pleaded guilty on the lirst charge and specification, and the Government could not make out its case on the other charges and specific ations. This is probably to be the last case to come before the court. ■ ■—I———— BY TELEGRAPH. LEGISLATURE OF KAINE. [SPECIAL DISPATCH TO THK DAILY rRKSS.J Augusta, March 19. SENATE.

The Battle of Kelly’* Ford-Detailed Aooount of the Engagement—A Splendid Union Victory. Nkw York, March 19. The Tribune’s special gives an acoount of tile light at Kelly's Ford, of which the follow ing are extracts: During the night a force under Lieutenant Colonel Curtis, ol the 1st Massachusetts cav alry, was detailed to advance toward the rail road at Ilealeton station, aud to Elk Hun, in I the direction of Warreuion. At it P. M. the ‘ lorcei advanced. Col. Curtis as above indicat ed, and Gen. Averill with the main force to ward Kelly’s Ford. Arriving at the ford short ly after daylight, the advance guard found it well defended by dismounted cavalry and sharpshooters concealed in houses and behind trees aud fences. The approaches on both sides were rendered impassable by stroug abattis, while the water was four feel deep. After several attempts to cross under a hot tire, a platoon Irom the 1st Rhode Island cavalry, led by Lieut. Brown, da-hed into the stream, followed by the axinen, who soon removed the abattis. Tile gallant ' fellows were met by volleys of bullets, but so sudden and surprising was the movement that twenty-live rebels were captured. The whole force immediately followed, and the artillery was taken over with the ammunition in the feed bags of the horses, carried by the cavalry, and repacked on the other side. After halting and resting a short time, Gen. Averill ordered the column forward, and bad proceeded hut a mile or two when Fitziiugb Lee's whole brigade were discovered advanc ing In vigorous style. Our men had one edge of one strip of woods, while the enemy hsd a like position in the timber opposite, witli a wide and dear ileld between the two. Ad vancing out of this, both forces appeared iu the open ground, the enemy advancing rapid ly on our right, with the intention of turning that llank, aud on our left w illi the purpose to charge it. Botii movements were anticipated. On our right they were speedily repulsed by our artil lery. and on * lie left by a gallant charge under Col. Dutlic, who led that portion ol the col umn. The rebels stood only a moment, and then turned and tied back into the woods with disorder, leaving their killed and wounded on the Held. After re-lornilng, Gen. Averill again advanced and took up a position a mile or more beyond, believing that the enemy would again attack if an opportunity offered. This proved true, and the rebels soo.'i advanced again, this time wilii artillery. Their cavalry came up on the charge In ad mit able style, hut they were met by a terrifle onslaught by the 5th Regulars and 3d I’euu sylvauia, which turned them back in confu sion, they retreating down our line by the flank, which enabled our remaining squadron to pour in tremendous volleys Irom their car bines, emptying hundreds ot saddles, and completely repulsing the whole charge In force. They did not molest us again save with artillery, to which we did not reply, being out of ammunition. Gen. Averill held his position until sundown, aud theu retired to the north side of tii* river. The enemy’s loss was severe, reachiug no doubt to 2UU. as their wounded were found ev erywhere. Our loss w ill uol exceed titty in killed und wounded. It was a square, stand up cavalry fight of over four hours’ duration, ami the result proves that our cavalry, wlieu well handled, are equal, if not superior, to the enemy. In every instance they tied before the itnpetous charge of our men. The Fight on the Black water —Gallant Cav alry Charge. New York, March 19. A special dispatch to the Herald says: A very spirited battle took place on the Black water on Tuesday morning. General Peck dispatched the 11th Pennsylvania cavalry and two sections of the Massachusetts 7lh Battery to attack the enemy's iutrcnchinents, com manded hy Gen. Jenkins, of South Carolina, oppo-ite Franklin. Tne tight commenced at 6 o'clock A. M., and was carried on briskly for nn hour. Two separate cavalry charges were made on the fort idea lions. These were found to be literally lined with infantry, who poured a deadly tire into our ranks, wounding many in the drst charge, which was made by Major Stratton, who was wounded in the shoulder.— The second charge was conducted by Major Carney, who led his inen lip to the fortifica tions to try aud jump the ditch, hut the move was soon found to tie impracticable. The en emy opposed a heavy force of infantry and cavalry to the right and lelt of our position in order to try to outflank our troops, but with out success. The tight had not ended when our correspondent lelt the Sold. The enemy's reinforcements were coming up to defend tlie past. Washington Rumors. New York, March 19.

From Fortress Monroe — Rebel Demonstra tion on Gloucester. Fortress Monroe March 17. On Saturday last Gen, Fitzbugh Lee, with about 2,000 cavalry and two pieces of artillery, made a hurried advance upon our lines at Gloucester, hut hearing of some reinforce ments to our forces at that jxiiut, they retired as rapidly as they came. It is rumored they hare gone for reinforcements,but we are ready for them. Dissolving Views ot Ike Copperheads. We are permitted to publish the following extract from a letter recently received In this city, from a member of 'he 10th Maine regi ment, now encamped near Stafford Court House, Virginia: I wish I was a good writer; I would send a letter to some newspaper. It makes me mad, when I think of the cowardly, sneaking set at the North, trying to encourage the reb els all they can. One way is, by saying that our army is demoralized. I tell yon, there is not a word of truth in these statements, as far as 1 know; and I think I have almost as good a chance to know, as some of those cow ards at home. The men never felt better, nor more ready to give the rebels what they de serve; and, when fighting Joe starts, look out! for, as he says, the Army of the Potomac has never yet fought a battle—we have fought by squads. The great topic of the day in the camp of the 10th Maine, is going to the rear. It is pretty confidently asserted, that we shall not remain another week on this ground. 1 would like well enough to get where I could see some signs of civilization. This is no place at alt. Stafford Court House consists of the said court house, now used as a commissary store house, a jail, post-office, two burns and four houses—all used by Government. If Gen. Hooker gives battle before our time ex pires, and I think be will, and most likely a good many miles nearer Richmond, then I would like to stop and see the fun. It will not be much fun to a great many brave fel lows; but it is of no use making words about it—some of us must die, before this infernal rebellion is put down, and down it must go I Apropos, a friend sends us a slip from a California journal, containing the following passage from a late speech by the Hon. Win. II. Weeks, formerly of Maine, now Secretary of State in California: God Almighty! Mr. President — now I’m not swearing—but of all that is low. mean, vile, dirty, degraded, contemptible and utterly disgusting and offensive to the sight, smell and touch; of all the most loathsome reptiles, that crawl on their bellies and eat dirt; noth ing on earth, in air, or sea, av, even in hell it self, is half so degraded, half so contemptible, half so disgusting, as a Northern sympathizer with this rebellion. (Loud cheers, and yell', and cries of “Give it to ’em.”) AH the ele monia ext anoli •. .... 1„ There is a chord of filing, that may still vlbrtae for an out and out Southern rebel. I could weep, or pray, for him. But a Northern doughface! — I am like the wagoner, who drove up a hill In one of the mountain coun ties, with a load of coal.

I will give it to the public : Some yearn ago I wee at tacked with spasm*. aad had them oftea ; 6aaL ly they became very hard Fite ; I would have them at any time and in any place. I have been I to a number of physicians, aad all to no pur pose. I grew worse until I was almost unit for any business. I came to the conclusion to sail on Mm. Manchester, through a friend's persua sion. I did call on her. She gave me a satis factory examination in every particular—she told me that she could cam me, but that the pro cess would be slew. I commenced taking her medicine; the disease gradually lessened, not having the fits so oftea or as hard. Finally my general health gained in the meantime, and for several months I have not had any of the Its, and can truly say that I think Mrs. Manchester has been my benefactor. For further particu lars call on me at my residence, 88 State street. M. T. Liaei. Portland, Abe. 16,1860. Ok mt the fr*wteat Cares on Record. Mas.

I applied to four different phy sicians, but received no benefit until 1 cal.ed oa you. At that lime I had gives up businees, and was in a very bad state, but after taking your medicine fbr a short time I began to recover .and in two months I waa entirely well, and had gain ed several pounds of Sash, and can truly say that by yoar skin I am a perhotly healthy man. Jours Dana. Boston 4 Maine Depot, Portland, Me. Lixtaorox, July 10th. This is to certify that I have been cured of Dyspepsia, Liver Complaint and Female Weak ness, by Mrs. Manchester, after I had been giv en up by twelve or fifteen physicians ; and whan I commenced taking her medicine t was so weak that I could not bear the hast food oa my stom ach ; but la a very short time l began to recover, and have rapidly regained my hedlth, and am now going on n long journey. I would heartily recommend all invalids to go and see her above all other physicians. Asst L. Hiooixe. I wish to say to the public generally that I called on Mrs. Manchester with a child at mine that had fits, and had had them for five year*; I carried him to a great number of physicians, but they all dill him no good, and he finally grew worse. I took him to Mrs. M.; »he told me what his complaint was, and how he was while in the fits,and told me the could cure him. aad she has, for he has never had but two fits since, and before that he bad them every .night. Asst J. Baowa. Portland, June ‘id.
