Her husb&ud was long and favorably known as one of the most courteous and obliging con ductors on the lower route from this city to Boston, until a year or two since, when from illness he was obliged to relinquish his posi tion. Camp Berry.—We paid a visit to Camp Berry at Mackie’s Island, yesterday by the steamer Hester, Capt. Mattocks, and found the encampment in excellent condition. The conscripts were being drilled or engaged in fitting up additional quarters for cooking purposes, Ac. The officers’ tents looked very inviting. The officer of the day has to serve two days in succession, one day on the Island, and the next on the steamer. Quite a number of conscripts arrive daily from our city, as well ms from other parts of the State by differ ent routes. A Murder Trial.

See ad vertisement. Arrival. The steam revenue cutter Cuy ahoga arrived in our harbor yesterday after noon at 5 o’clock, from Boston. She is of tine model, and carries six guns. Mr. Harrington, Asslstaut Secretary of the Treasury, is on board, for the purpose of recruiting bis im paired health. The cutter will continue her cruise along our coast as far as the Bay of Fundy. We would invite attention to the ad vertisement of the new firm, composed of Mr. Ansel Lothrop and Mr. Charles Hamilton who.have taken the store No. 119Commercial street, where they offer a supply of provisions, flour, ship stores, Ac., at wholesale and re tail. ._ 6^" There is at the Merchants’ Exchauge, in this city, a fine specimen of tobacco, grown in Cumberland, by Mr. A. Sturdivant. The plant is only of about four weeks’ growth, and is about three feet high, and some of the leaves are more than a foot long. MT-The dolphins which were placed in our harbor for tbe purpose of mooring the Great Eastern, are now being removed by or der of the Harbor Commissioners, greatly to the satisfaction of the marine interest 28th Maine Regiment.—This regiment was to have left Boston at nine or ten o’clock last evening, and may be expected to arrive in this city early this morning, on their way to Augusta.

Phinney Jfc Jackson, on the wharf. When lie discovered the fire, it was in the vicinity of the chimney, and he started immediately for the Sugar house to have the alarm whistle : sounded. When he returned, he found that ; the dames had spread through the cooperage. . The alarm quickly brought the fire depart ment to the spot. Engine No. 4, (Ocean) got the first stream of water on to the Haines, and it was immediately followed hy a stream from the Ellsworth company. The steam Engines were soon on the spot and by the indomitable efforts of the firemen, the conflagration was confined to the cooperage, which was com pletely burned down, destroying a large quan tity of cart shooks, which had been got in j readiness for the West India market. The ! loss of Messrs. Phiuuey & Jackson will amount to between three and four thousand dollars. It is fully covered, by insurance for ♦5,000 at the Etna office, Hartford, at the of fice of Hon. J. C. Churchill. At one time the fire looked as if it would be i very destructive. The adjoining wharf, Ber- j ; lin Mills, was covered with lumber, and the flakes were falling on it fast and thick. At ! this wharf, and in close proximity to the fire, the large and beautiful ship Franklin Pierce, owned by Hon. Daniel Marcy and others, o' Portsmouth, loading with deals. Near her, oil the other side of the wharf, was the British • bark Jobu Henry. The latter vessel caught fire in the sails in two or three places. Gangs of men worked ou board of these vessels and they were being warped from the dock. But the energy of our firemeu subdued the flames and prevented the extension of the couflagra- . tion. It is supposed the fire was accidentally communicated in the cooperage. Ward Seven. — Large and enthusiastic meetings were held iu many of the wards last evening. That in Ward Seven was particu larly interesting. Remarks were made by nons. J. B. Brown, S. E. Spring, G. W. Wood man, Esq., Lewis B.

We judge by the length of time ! she remains in large cities, and the prompt- ' ness with which her advertising and printing hills are paid, that she meets with good suc cess. U. S. Commissioner's Court.—Yesterdays' William D. Stevens was brought before Wm. ; If. Clifford, Esq., U. S. Commissioner, charged j with purchasing a United States uulfnrm from ; a soldier.

The Tribune’s dispatch says an officer has just returned from Charleston, and confirms the previous statement that the taking of Charleston is to be a matter of time. He says it is next to impossible to batter down Fort Wagner; that the men keep under the bomb proofs, upon which our shot and shell produce no efi’cct; that the only way the fort can bo carried is by direct assault, which will not at present be attempted. The chances of knocking Fort Sumter to pieces are belter. Indeed, it is generally be lieved there that the fort will speedily fall. If it falls the forces cannot occupy it, as it will be battereii to pieces. Even should wc take Forts Sumter and Wagner the other forts have got to be overcome, and the rebels, who are as busy as bees day and night, are erecting bat teries after batteries on the way to Charleston. The military force is not deemed sufficient, and will have to be largely reinforced before the fluale is consummated. The public may at once divest themselves of the idea that any startling news is to come from Charleston at present. The Draft in New York. New York, Aug. 17. The draft commences in tins city on Wednesday, in the 6th Distrbt.

Provost Marshal General Fry publicly an nounces by an order to Provost Marshal Fair 'to proceed with the draft; that the draft be commenced on Wednesday at 10 A. M., at 186 Sixth Avenue.

One of our officers who left Morris Island on Friday says: Upon receiving instructions in regard to conveying news by Quartermaster Dunton, he asked him, “What shall I tell our friends at •Fortress Monroe?’’ The Quartermaster re plied, “Tell them a great battle will be fought here on the 15th and 18th iusts., and we shall he victorious.’’ ] | From California. San Francisco, Aug. 15. Accounts come via Dos Angelos of the dis covery of a very rich and extensive gold mill ing region in the San Francisco mountains ly ing east of the Colorado river. The Lopas and other recently formed mining companies on the Colorado have been deserted for the new mines. The latter is described as a new Cal- 1 fonila.

Iiitluyto one of tho strongest advocates of the secessionists in England, excites much comment. That jour nal looks on the rutint Federal victories as great if uot decisive, and in a measure gives up the cause of. the South as virtually lost. The Liverpool Chamber of Commerce held its half yearly ineetlug oil the 3d inst. The speakers expressed the opinion that the Arner can war was not far from its close. James Spence, the notorious secession advocate, con curred in this opinion. The Polish national government had order ed a forced loau of 21,000.000 tlorins. A proclamation from the same source rejects every compromise not based on the indepen dence ol Poland, with a restoration of the boundaries of 1772. Several insurgent leaden have been hung at Warsaw. Tlie Turkish army is to be raised from 85.000 to 180,000 men. Two camps of obser vation are Jo be established ou the Bosnia and on the Danube.

AT a full meeting ol' the croditors of the late John Hounds, held this day, pursuant to previous no tice, the wboio subject matter being referred to a committee of nine duly appointed tor that purpose, w ho reported as follows, which report is hereby unan imously accepted. From the Probate Records. Whole amount of claims allowed against the estate, *5,781.42 inventory or the estate. Cash. *160 oo Good* and chattels, 246 66 ltights and credits, 4.490 15 - *4.896.91 AND further the Probate Kecordb saith not. Sufficient, however, is here apparent, that instead of 20 per cent, the estate should have paid, and did iu reality pay about 854 per ceut, less the cost of ad ministration, and the furniture ('*246 06). Sewell C. Strout, (Howard A Strout)“a8 COUNSEL for the Administratrix/' according to his oicn account, has had all the claims against the estate, less that of *54.54 at New York, assigned to hir 8KLF FOR 20 PER CENT. As evidence that said Strout has not paid over 20 per ceut. on $5 676 88 of these claim*, reference is had to the following letter, as constituting part of this report: Portland, March 31.1962. Messrs. Smith Stratton, Stic York: The dividend upon the claims against the estate ot John Hounds is 20 per cent., amounting upon your claim to *10 80. You can have the amount by send ing au order tor it to auy oue here. The dividend, have all beeu paid out except yours, a long time since, and 1 had forgotten about your claim. Yours truly, 8. ( . .Strout. The Account may be stated thus *5.731 42—54 54 is *5.676 88, at 20 per ceut. *1.185 38 Goods and chattels (furniture,Ac..) the Court allowed the administratrix to retain. 246 66 Cash at sundrv times, and Note from Strout to the administratrix, per bis account iu part rendered her. 975 00 Amount of the New York claim remaining unsettled, 54 54 , *2.411 58 Tins amount. *2.411 54, taken from the assets, *4.896 81, supposing the N. York claim of *54 64. to be paid in lull, show a balance of *2.485 23. less the cost of cut ministration, unaccounted for in the hands of Sewell C. Strout. which of right, to gether with the *975 above sit forth, should hart been paid to the respective creditors of said estate. \ our Committee, therefore, upon a full and dis passionate review of the whole matter, are of opiu ion that by reasou of the misrepresentations of said Strout, all the creditors, except l). T. Chase, have beeu cheated out of their just dues, and recommend to each of them to take such legal measures, as the laws raav afford, to compel saia Strout to make good the difference between what they severally got, and what the estate should have paid, and would have paid, had the original entries on the books q/' the Pro■ ate Reeords been faithfully carried out.
