Fox for respondent. John Murphy, for larceny of six barrels of flour from E. A. Norton & Co., was ordered to recognize, with sureties, in the sum of $201 for his appearance at the November term ol the Supreme Judicial Court. Failing in bail, he was committed. Gas.—In our j-epart of the proceedings of the City Council at their meeting on Monday evening (published in Tuesday’s issue,) men tion is made of a report submitted by the Joint Select Committee, to whom was referred the subject of the expediency of the city’s mau ulaeluring the gas needed for the city building, the amount of which, yearly, is enormous. -That committee visited several establish ment, in this vicinity which manufacture their own gas, among which were the Laconia Mill. at Biddeford, the Westbrook Manufacturing Company, and others. From ail the inquiries aiid investigations made, the committee are oi opinion that it will be for the interest of the city to manufacture gaa for the eity building, and that it will not coat over $1150 per thou sand feet, allowing a reasonable sum for depre ciation of works. The Mayor took the opportunity to dilate upon the poor quality of gas furnished the past season, and the high price charged for it. He said that the only excuse offered by the company was, that their stock was poor. This is no reason wby gas bills should be so enor mously charged as they have been for eight months past. If the city should manufacture gas, would it not be of advantage to our citizens, that, like the Laconia Company at Biddeford, it should supply citizens with gas ? The report was re-committed to the same committee for the purpose of obtaining esti mates of the cost of the works. Pabmelees’ Patent- Piano Fobts.— These instruments are now on exhibition a! McKenney’s Picture Gallery, opposite the Preble House. We looked at them yesterday, and heard their tones. Improvements in mu sical instruments we are bound to speak of and let the public know them. These instru ments differ from others in their construction, at least, so far as the musical part3 are con cerned. The strings are strained upon a me taliic frame, which is entirely isolated from the case so that no part of the strain comes upon the case. This, no doubt, is a decided im provement and makes the tones more mellow, powerful aud rieh. The holes in the frame are bushed with wood, in which the straining or tuning pins are inserted. This arrange ment prevents that metallic sound which i. sueli disagreeable muric to the cultivated ear. The lorm of the case is beautiful, and the workmanship excellent. We have an impres sion that these instruments will be much sought for aud give good satisfaction. Shabk Caught. — Capt. Benj. Willard caught on Tuesday, twenty-five miles outside of Cape Elizabeth, a shark of the man-eater species, twelve met long, weighing about 130C pounds, and measuring about seven feet around the thickest part of the body. This fish is rarely seen on this coast, and this is the first one brought into this port. The monster can be seen to-day and to morrow at Sargent’s fish market, head of Cus tom House Wharf Admittance fifteen cents. A good opportunity for ladies to look at what sailors call a “ sea lawyer.” We have received from Messrs. Bailey A Noyes a copy of the “ Roll of Honor. List of Members of Bowdoin College, who have serv ed in the U, S. Army or Navy during the War of the Rebellion.” It is printed in a neat and artistic style by Brown Thurston, and is pub lished for the benefit of the Soldier’s Memori al Fund. Every family in he State should possess a copy, to show how proudly Old Bowdoin has done during the war, in which more than 250 of her graduates and students have served in the army or navy. Cebeals.—From the persistent efforts oi certain speculators at the South and West in representing a short crop in wheal, Ac., we ate inclined to the belief that it is done to keep up the high price3 of cereals. From the best information we can attain upon the subject, there will be a fair crop of wheat in the West em States, while that in the Southern State will be large. Advices from abroad report favorable symptoms for the harvests in Eu rope. Catholic Faib.— The arrangements for this Fair are progressing grandly. It is to commence on the 21st instant, and will be the most brilliant exhibition that has ever been had in this city. The display of articles will not only be large, but will be of a superior order. The exhibition of paintings by Mist Beckett will present a superior collection. They may be seen at the shop of Larrabee A Co., No. 69 Exchange Street RScdden Death.—Josiah Little, Esq., for merly of this city, and who removed from here to Auburn, but for several years past has resided in Newburyport, Mass., died suddenly of apoplexy yesterday morning, at Mount Des ert, in which place he was rusticating. His remains will betaken through to-day to New buryport. Delegates at Large.—At a meeting of the delegates of the several wards to the State Convention, held yesterday afternoon, Hon. Samuel E. Spring, Hon. William W. Thomas, and John T. Gilman, Esq., were elected dele tes at large to the State Convention to be neld to-day. We are under obligations te Messrs. Allan Brothers * Co. for files of papers per steam ship Damascus at Quebec from Liverpool. A New Floub Dealeb.—Last week John Murphy, thinking he could supply his own fhmlly with flour at no cost, and could also put money in his pocket by selling to his neigh bors, engaged a boy teamster to go to E. A. Norton & Co.’s and got six barrels of flour for W. & C. R. MiUiken. Messrs. Norton & Co., having, before, sold lots of flour to the Messrs. Milliken, thought it all correct, and delivered the flour to the boy, who, at Murphy’s order, drove it to the house of the latter. Murphy sold four barrels of it and kept two. A day or two since Messrs. Norton & Co discovered that they had been swindled, and the matter was investigated. The flour was all recovered save a small portion used out of two barrels. Two barrels were found at Mur phy’s house, and the others at the places where he sold it. Murphy was arrested and after an examination yesterday in the Municipal Court, was committed to jail in default of bail for his appearance at the November term of the Su preme Judicial Court. Feabful Leap.—A man whose name, from the papers found upon him, is supposed to be John Melody, came to this city yester day morning on the freight train from Island Pood, and took lodgings at the Sailors’ Home on India Street He was shown to a room in the third story of the house, from the window of which he afterwards jumped and fell to the ground, receiving shocking injuries. He was taken to the Police office and subsequently to the City Hospital, where he was attended to. He was evidently deranged, and showed symp toms of it before he arrived here. Attention Is directed to change of time in commencing the fall term of Fryeburg Acade my, which will commence August 30th instead of September 6th. This institution, one of the be3t in the State, situated in a beautiful and healthy locality, with refined and excellent so ciety, under the charge of Mr. Charles D. Barrows, favorably known to many of our citizens as a very thorough practical teacher, will, we have no doubt, maintain the high standing it has held in in the estimation of the public. Fenian Pic-Nic.—This affair comes off to day. An extra train will leave the York and Cumberland depot at 10 o’clock. The excur sion will be a pleasant one, and the entertain ments are based on a scale that will afford happiness to all. In addition to the games to be introduced, there will be speaking from gentlemen from Boston and this city. It is the first affair of the kind by the Fenians, and they are determined it shall be a happy one. Excursion. — Portland Division No. 07. Sons of Temperance, will make a grand ex cursion next Tuesday, to Winthrop, holding a Levee in South Pond Grove. It will be a de lightful ride, and the place selected is among the most beautiful in the State/* By referem-e to the advertisement it will be seen what the programme is to be. The affair promises to be one of the best of the season. The Peak Family.—The first entertain ment of the Peak family will be given at Citv Hall to-morrow evening, and those who at tend may be sure they will get their money's worth. The concerts given by this unique family are chaste and pleasing. Their Swiss bell ringing is incomparable, and always com mands great applause, while the vocal part of the entertainment is excellent. L O. of O. F.—At the session of the Grand Encampment at Saco Tuesday evening, the following officers were chosen: Cyrus K. Ladd, Portland, G. Patriarch; G. N. Bead, Portland, G. High Priest; A. M. McKenny, Portland, G. Senior Warden; John H. Hall, Portland, G. Junior Warden; Edward P. Banks, Port land^. Scribe and Treasurer; Thomas P. Sawyer, Saco. G. Sentinel. Afraid to Laugh.—Ladies sometimes re press their laughter to avoid revealing the dis coloration of their teeth. Fair ones, we would advise you to try the Fragrant Sozodont. It will remove, at once, all impurities, arrest the progress of decay, and whiten such parts as have already become black by decay, and leave the breath as fragrant as a rose. 2t Personal.—We received a very pleasant call yesterday from Mr. Newcomb, editor of the Indianapolis State Journal, and from Mr. Wallace, clerk of the county of which Indian apolis is the shire,—a brother of General Lew Wallace. Left.—The 1st Maine Cavalry left lor Au gusta in a special train, between three and four o’clock, yesterday afternoon' They were well cared for during their shortstop here, and expressed themselves as much pleased with the attentions bestowed upon them. Have you tried Dr. Bicknell’s Syrup ? It cures dysentery, diarrhea, &c, and is the pleas antest and best medicine ever made. It con tains no opiates or any thing that can harm you. Pearl Street Universalist Society and Sabbath School make an excursion to the Is lands, in Steamer Casco, this morning, leaving Custom House wharf at eight and a half o’clock. —-— OOV. PARSONS OP AT.AWAMA This provisional Governor has issued a proclamation authorizing the election of dele gates to a convention to be holden on the 10th of September, at Montgomery. Speaking of slavery, the Gov. says: There is no longer a slave in Alabama. It is thus made manifest to the world that the right of secession for the purpose of establish ing a separate Confederacy, based on the idea of African Slavery, has been fully and effectu ally tried, and is a failure. • «•••• There are no slaves now in Alabama. The slave code is a dead letter. They who were once slaves are now free, and must be govern ed by the laws of Alabama as free men. It is the dictate of wisdom, and we owe it to our selves and them to produce the best possible results for both races from the new order of things. He says, “the life-boat of the Union is still within our reach,” and he urges all to take refuge on board. In truth, he says, “there is no other sail in sight. England and France often seemed to be bearing down to our relief, but they have tacked, nay, they have put square about, and are now well down on the distant verge of the ocean.” We think the Governor is a little out here, for we don’t remember when the English or French seemed to be bearing down to anybody’s relief, but the rebels’. But as the people of Alabama, however, are oblig ed to get on board the Union ship in order to be saved, the Governor is perfectly right in ad vising them to conduct themselves in a proper manner when they are fairly bestowed on the deck of that gallant vessel. We know of no other place where they can be so safe, provid ed they have a clean bill of health. THE PRESIDENT AND HIS “FRIENDS.* The Washington correspondent of the Mis souri Democrat is responsible for the follow ing: A well-known editor of a prominent north ern journal said to the president: “The de mocracy say you will yet be found with them; that you have been always a good democrat, and will always so remain.” “Do they?” respond ed Mr. Johnson, “well, sir, you are at liberty to tell all such gentlemen that while, as Presi dent, I shall endeavor to drop any partisan character, I certainly am not prepared to do more than pray for those who despite fully use me. I think they stand in need df prayers, and it’s all I can do for them.” A friend told me lately that, in talking with the president about the Blairs, he wittily remarked that the only trouble about the elder Blair was that he had not the propriety to die when his term of usefulness had expired, adding, “and that time, sir, was a long time ago—an all-fired long time ago.” __ Sy-The armament of the Agamenticus is four 15-inch Dahlgren guns — just twioe the Dictator’s metal. The A. cost about one-fourth as much as the D., and requires about half the crew to man her. Some comparisons are cer tainly odious—this, for instance, between Ports mouth and Brooklyn Yards.—[Chronicle. "[telegraph. TO THE DAIRY PRESS. Front Washington. Washington, Aug. 9. At least two hundred persons were in wait ing at two o’clock to-day at the Executive Mansion to see the President. Among them were persons from several Southern States in request of pardon. Oci Burnett, of Kentucky, who has been a member ot the U. S. House of Representatives and who was one of the first advocates' of se^ cession, and afterwards a leader in the rebel Senate, was in the group as a seeker after Exe cutive clemency. Of the entire number of auxious solicitors for admission to the Presi dent’s office, one half were women. Compar atively few of the crowd succeeded in obtain ing admission. William Seldon, of Norfolk, Va., was to-day the object of special pardon. The Navy Department designs to send the iron-clad Monadonock to San Francisco. She will be accompanied by another vessel carry ing coal and necessary supplies. 1 he number of pardons so far granted by th6 President will not exceed 500. Many ap plications have, however, been favorably acted on by the Attorney General, but they await the final action of the President. No permanent appointment as yet will be made to supply the vacancy in the Bureau ot Navigation occasioned by the death of Capt. Drayton. Admiral Porter has, however, been assigned to the duties of chief ad interiem The Department of State has received, through Mr. Burlingame, the United States Minister to China, a copy of the recent trans lation of Wheaton’s International Law to the Chinese language, which has been made by Rev. N. O. P. Marston of the American Pres byterian Mission. It is understood the trans lation does not include such of the notes to the late edition as were inserted to justify disloyalty in this country. several applications Having been made to the Commissioner of Pensions, under the mis taken impression that die last session of Con gress passed an act increasing the rate of pen sion for the loss of a limb. It is officially announced that no such pen sion for the loss of one limb has been made. The army pension ior such a loss receives $10 per month, if he was a private or non-commis sioned officer or musician, $15 a month if he was a 2d lieutenant, $17 if a 1st lieutenant, $20 if a captain, $25 if- a major, and $30 if a lieutenant colonel or of any higher grades. The same rates, according to rank, are appli cable to-navy pensions. It is positively ascertained that there are do counterfeits on the notes of the national banks in circulation. C'asnaitirt by the Railroad AeridtM. Boston, Aug. 9. The Norwich train from Boston ran off the track this morning. One man killed and 15 or 20 wounded. Norwich, Conn., Aug. 8. A full list of the wounded by the railroad accident cannot be obtained until afternoon.— The following is a partial list:—Alpheus Ad ams ofNortliboro, Mass., killed: John Blais dell, agent of the Lake Shore railroad, severe ly injured in his back, but will recover; Chas. Davis of New York, cut in his face slightly: Mrs. O’Negley of Hagerstown, arm broken and (ace cut badly. Her daughter is cut in her face slightly. Mr. Hacker, of the firm of Lon isee A Buckner, 448 Broadway, hurt in leg; Elizabeth Rose of Urookljn, Mass., slightly in jured; Susie Rose of Brookline, Mass,, slightly injured. The accident was caused by a brok en rail. From Havana and San Domingo. New York, Aug. 9. The steamer Columbia brings Havana dates of the 5th. The ram Stonewall still remains in port.— The opinion expressed by Admiral Gordon that she could not stand an attack from any of our larger Monitors is endorsed generally by all who have visited her. Samana, South Domingo, has been evacuat ed by the Spanish troops, and the exchange of prisoners satisfactorily arranged. There is a rumor that the Hytiens are giv ing the Dominicans trouble. The yellow fever is raging in Puerto Princi pe. There is very little fever in Havana. Judah Benjamin and Kirby Smith were still in Havana, but would probably go to Europe soon. Kentucky Elections. Louisville, Ky., Aug. 8. In the 7th district Green Clay Smith has been elected to Congress. Randall appears to be elected in the 8th district. Oldham county gives Mallory 455; Rosseau 149. Lexington, Ky., Aug. 8. The conservatives have carried every coun ty in this district by the following majorities: Fayette, 607: Franklin, 556; Boyles, 64: Wood ford. 435; Lincoln, S00. The estimated ma jorities by counties are: Bourbon, 500; Scott, 800; Jessamine, 300; Elizabethtown, 8. The following is the vote of Hardin county for Congress: Hardin, 865; Taylor, 338. Henry county gives 330 for Mallory for Congress. Heavy Robbery. Tboy, Penn., Aug. 9. A safe in4he office of Howard & Co.’s Ex press office, in this village, was entered on the night of the 25th ult., and 80 U. S. 7-30 notes numbered from 163,737 to 163,766, and ninety C. 8. 7-80 notes of the last issue of *100 each, numbered from 259,S28 to 259,917 stolen there from, which have not yet been recovered. The public is cautioned against buying these bonds. They have never been regularly issued, and are, therefore, worthless, the government hav ing stopped payment. The Express Company offer a reward of *4000 for the recovery of the bonds and the apprehension and convic tion of the thieves. Meeting of the American Institute of Instruc tion. New Haven, Conn., 9. The American Institue of Instruction held its 2d session to-day. There were present 1000 guests from abroad, of whom, two-thirds, at least, are ladies. The question discussed was—“What duties does the return of peace bring to the friends of education, especially in reference to Freedmen.” Among the letters read was one from Gen. Howard, urging the establishment of schools among the Freedmen, and tendering all the assistance in his power. From Texas. New Obleans. Aug. 9. An extensive fire occurred at Galveston, Texas, on the 2nd instant, involving a heavy loss. It was doubtless the design of certain parties to burn the town. The actions of the villians in Galveston were never before eqnlal ed in atrocity. Texas has been divided into three military districts. Gen. Turner commends the Galves ton District, relieving Gen. Granger. The steamer George Cromwell has arrived from New York. Kentucky and the War. Louisville, Kj., Aug. 9. Gen. Brisbane, in his official report of the organization of colored troops, states that Kentucky has furnished 28,818 black men for the army. He also says that 24,000 women and children have been freed under the act of March 3,1865, granting freedom to the wives and children of colored soldiers. The whole number of persons made free in Kentucky through the instrumentality of the army is 108,664. Industrial School among the Navajo Indians. New Yobk, Aug. 9. The Post’s special Washington dispatch says that the Commissioner of Indian Affairs has received a proposition from Philadelphia in regard to the establishment of industrial schools among the Navago Indians in New Mexico and are all to be at the expense of the Government. The Commissioner has granted the request, and promises the co-operation of the Bureau in forwarding the enterprise. Movement* of Gen. Grant. Tobonto, C. W., Aug. 8. General Grant and suite arrived on a special train from Montreal this morning, and imme diately embarked on board a steamer for Ni agara Falls. A large crowd assembled at the railroad station, although his arrival was not generally known, and an impromptu hand shaking took place. A call upon the General tor a speech elicited a smile and a shake of the head. «*». UUl—Prise Money. _, , _ Washington, Aug. 9. the rebel General Hill, who was committed *° a a-wo, 'douse a tew days ago for indecent and disorderly conduct, has been released, two mechanics having paid his fine.

The London Court Journal gives an ac count of a gentleman who was conspicuous in London society. He was a Major in the Fifth Dragoon Guards, and blew out his brains at his lodgings in May Fair. He placed a five chamber revolver in his mouth and fired, and the charge carried away the back part of his head, He was a targe owner in “Confederate Bonds,” and derived the principal part of his income from them. The effect of Our war up on such investments was very disastrous, and this Major had not philosophy enough to stand up under such circumstances. Having moved in the first circles on the strength of these bonds he had no desire to live after these investments became worthless. It is very possible that many other Englishmen are in the same category, so far as their funds are concerned, but we trust they will not blow their brains out on that account. We supposed Englishmen had more pluck. If a Frenchman had plunged into the Seine and drowned himself for such a cause, our sur prise might not have been so great. Those who invested their money in such securities will not probably enlist much sympathy on this side of the water. We looked for more fi nancial skill and prudence in John Bull, but it seems his prejudices against us at the North overcame his better judgment, and he must suffer the consequences. 8^-Rev. J. C. Fletcher writes from Brazil in answer to inquirers, that emigrants to that country oan purchase lands in the more south ern and cooler provinces at 44 cents an acre. Sugar, cotton, tobacco, and coflee can he raised there. Two of the provinces ho names are well adapted to the raising of oattle and sheep. No slave can be imported into the oountry.
