We are glad to believe that the question of
supplying Portland with pore soft water is like
ly to become the great question of our domes
tic economy. When we wrote an article the
other day in fevor of this measure notwith
standing its large expense, and insisted thar
true economy and the prosperity of the city
alike demand the commencement and con
summation of this enterprise even t hough tax
es may be thereby increased, *we did not know
but we should'hit against the grain of the
heavy tax-payers of the city, and imagined
some of them might find fault; though we in
tended to urge the measure according to our
own views of its merits, whatever o^i^uons
might be entertained by others. We confess
it was with no ordinary degree of satisfactk n
lliat we heard the oompiuaeniary woroe spot
en of that article, and sevehd gentlemen
whom we supposed to be at least indifferent
in relation to the matter, have urged us to
aid hi making this great want of the city 90c
o ' the questions which shall not be winkec
out of sight, be allowed to shtfnbef.—
One gentleman in particular, who has as large
stakes in the city’s destiny, pTpgrtes and pros
perity as perhaps any other, said he consider
ed the water question a vital One, ShWPerf'h^s
ed a hope that the Press woufcl give Its read
ers ljequent articles upon the . subject,,that
it shall not cease to attract public attention.
A few days since we were In conversation
with one of ths richest and most enterprising
residents of a neighboring city in-tlils State,
and he said, judging from the «*nd-ppi«tA4*‘
occupied, and from a somewhat intimate ac
qauintance with the cjnditloii and wants of
Portland, that he regarded the introductiftn.jpt
pure soft water, in liberal supply, as thttgreafcp
e;t enterprise before our people, and as one
upon the results of which the prosperity of tbe
city depends more, perhaps, than upon any
other. " """
Hat to-day we propose to be brief, ipad sh^ll.
not go at length into tile AnelfS of »h Jmatn
question. „ _, ■ . » . » mon' \
In the Advertiser of yesterday is an article,
one point of which we regret to see urged, be
cause we are confident it has no force, and
that it3 tendency is only to odium upon
the whole discussion, and to cast suspicion
upon some of the propositions that have been
made touching the natter., In repiy toanoth
er paper the Advertiser says:
Doe3 not the Argus overlook the feet, that
taking the water in the lake, the same diver
sion which must be paid for to the Water Power
Company, must be paid lor, also, under the
same rate of appraisement, to the Cumberland
Min, of Congin Pali Co.?
And, again, be paid for to every owner of
the two sets of wateMailsat Saecarappa?
And, again, to each intermediate power, in
cluding the Lindsay Pads, at the outlet of the
Lake, although this last might be hut nomi
nal, and yet the only one that would be lroffii ■
nal, in the whole range of Fada, equalling in
allMSieet? . •."
W ill a pioject that thus invol ves payir g for
each cubic foot ot water supply to.the city, eon
limes over, commend itself even to-'the cwy'ot
Portland, a3 the economocal method of obtain
ing that supply?
We have heretofore noticed this pretence
that every owner of water power -on Presrqnj
scot river has a claim upon every gallon of
water in Sebago Lake and all it* feeders. We
do not believe the doctrine. ThefUteri/i
the river may not be changed from fts IsSihi
channel or course to the damage of, any own
er upon that naturel channel. But SCbago
Lake water has no course. That Ltd* af^
fords no mill sites. It* waters arc cpliefc, and
it is a natural and common reservoir tferbt'
drawn from for common purposes, every own
er upon its shore having a right to drayv Water
from it to irrigate his landsand the State
may grant the same or more extended privi
leges to others. To our mind the idea that
the d -awing cf water from that Lake, to water
the city of Portland, would afford grounds £>r
claiming damage by water power owners on
the river, is perfectly preposterous. The Sttte
has power, In our opinion, to cut-a channel
from Moosehead Lake into the head waters of
the Penobscot, and make that river Instead;of
the Kennebec the outlet of the Lake, and own
ers on the latter river would liav^na r|dr^;»...
If this can be doiie,—and it has been attempt
ed, and was not resisted on the ground setup
by the Advertiser,—who can doubt the jb&fi&v
to authorize the city of Portland to tap Seba
go Lake for the purposes undof" cdhsfaerf
uon. , V •;/ , -1 • . inviK-.ii • . .4
But, supposing we are wrong, andtliat the
city would be liable, as we have shown rb a
former article it would be liable only ftnqp
tual damages, to be estimated by a jury; and
there are, probably, no twelve men in.rthe
county, who could be be teawn the JUry
boxes, who would ever agree that one Cent of
damage had occrued or could occrue to any
water power owner on the river tlrom sttei*
slight diversion of the water of ttys Lake; a
lake so situated that almost any amount Qf
water may be held bait* by the construction
of requisite dams at the outlet, so that, in the
lowest seasons of drought, an ample supply
might be available for all Water-power pin
poses. We are quite sure our people have Ho
fears on this score, and would be wilting to *s
sune all the risk of damages, trorn sueh. a
To hold up and attempt to menace the etty
with such damages, in the discussion of this
question, as we have already intimated, ihp
the two-, old effect to bring needless odium up
on the whole discussion in the minds of a
large class, and to create the impaej^on: that
those who urge this argument desire to ffree
the city to a single alternative, and tbps make
a speculation,out of it. The writer
above extract will agree with us, that such an
impression, widsty prevailing, would operate
greatly to the disadvantage of the enterprise,
and retard a work which every public-spirited
friend of the city is anxious to see commenced
and carried forward to complete success, ion-.? ,
There is one other point in relation to whiph
we think much error prevails, and that Is that
good water can be found only !n the lake, while
water from the river it would be necessarily
impure and undesirable. This is a mistake.
PailaJelphia water is token from the river.
The water to supply the large towns on the
Canada side, at Niagara Fails, is taken freW
the river, and forced up to the reservoir by
pumps driven by water-power. Great Fills,
N. H, and lliddefcrd-those portions belong
ing to the factory corporations, at any ratel
are watered with river water, forced into the
reservoirs by pump3 in the factories. If we
are not greatly mistaken hi our reading and
information, impure water cannot be carried a
long distance in a running stream. There is
a constant tendency to purification. Dead
water only stagnates and becomes foul. Stir
up the water in a cistern that law-dome to
small badiy, and bring all its parts in contact
with the air, or draw It off through a faucet,
and the impurity is lost. The water acquires
from the oxigen of the atmosphere the quality
needed to restore its sweetness. Kunniitg w&ter,
especially if the surface be broken, cannot
stagnate or retain its impurity, While thfc natu
ral tendency of the earthy substances mixed
with it to settle to the bottom In the form of
sediment, render* It dear and transparent in
the reservoir.
If such be the case, it is no objection to any
water scheme that the proposition conte in -
plates taking water from the river rather than
I), maybe so taken, and be e^Aally
pre wh^t Instrilpijted thwmgh pipes to-eon
uinettf ife the cit# provided the proper ooridi
. tignra regarded tb ki#it welUapplied with
those properties which contact with the at
mosphere supplies.
With this view, the city many look at and
aansider favorably almost any proposition, and
..soot confined to a single surce of supply.
Whether it is proposed to go to the lake or to
:tariower Penobscot, the water may Be equally
pure. • j ..jtj rr ,' '3
Aii article appeared In the Press yesterday
nomlng, from a correspondent, in relation tu
the discomforts of the sick particularly, of the
10th Maine, on the passage from Savannah to
ihis’port That article implied that there was
iimost a total destitution in medical supplies,
-hat the siekcouid receive neither proper at
sntion nor sufficient nourishment, so that
upon the arrival of the ship one of the flvSt
iactions asked was, “When shall we have
,oicothing to eat
Of coarse, were sueh the facts, they would
show great itault if not criminality on the part
of somebody. Indeed, it was hinted that
cither the colonel, the quartermaster, or the
surgeon was at fault.
it is not surprising that each allegations,
though put in interrogative form, should cre
ate Unpleasant feeling on the part of the im

a voyage of six days, eleven days’ rations were
taken on board, and the men were allowed in
tnany things to draw more than their daily
rations, because it was known that a large
Surplus would be left over. : -u
In uie medical department there waq ,po
lack,'e*cept of quinine and whiskey—very
necessary for the complaints incident to the
blaoe of embarkation,—but though the sur
geon made seasonable requisition for these ar
ticles, he failed to receive a regular supply,
because they were not to be had. Every othe,
medicine was provided in foil supply.

Sder the direction and control of the Surgeon,
Ih men detailed as cooks to make gruel and

A few days since we gave an extract from a
Bath letter in relation to the caucus in that
city to select delegates to the County Conven
■lion. Since then we have been called upon tw
gentlemen from that city, men long connected
with the Republics party, whose lpie^tyo;
veracity we should be very unwilling to di -
credit, and they assure us, from their own per
sonal knowledge, that the caucus was called
and conducted fairly and according to usage,
and that the representations published in the
Press were grossly inaccurate and unjust.
111010 is no denial that Democrats went hi
and voted for the successful ticket, but they
say it is equally true that some Democrat
voted and others yep urged to vote for the
unsuccessful ticket? that; on both'sides, vote
, were thrown by persons who probably had nc
jjglfr to vpte, but tio exceptions war* yaps a®
the faimesrfBf the caucus until the result war
know*. They say forther, that the present
dissatisfied partiashnd tte otganiaatioii %/ that
t.ie chairman of the caucus and the committee
to receive, sort and count the "votes were men
who voted for the unsuccessful ticket, anil yet
[ they did not object to votes, or challenge them
when put in ; that,4n a small hath w^h.morr',
present than could conveniently get in, it wa.
impossible to conduct'the eaUcuTmore* kiny*
without a check Uat, and this was not prppofed
by any one. . ■■ . i.naTaloo&i
rhey further say that the same rhles ahd
regulations were observed in all respects that
have governed all proceeding caucuses, anu
that there is no reason t>r setting it aside or
for boklbg the mank.*--' * ■ iJ u‘■Tv1*. ■
In1 addition,, to all these statements, they
further insist that, If all the improper vote:
had been thrown out pn both sides, the result
could not have been different; for the success
ful ticket would then have been elected • by'at
least fifty majority. ,,
We arft. sorry to see these JifficnJti^t and
this heated personal feeling among our fronds
in Bath. It is discreditable to the city, the
county and the State. Our ftiends there must
-ec, tjoo, how delicate a matter it is for us to
interfere, in the Pre^,.frUb w^tfe® of a fecal

of Fair Oaks, Harrison’s Landing, Antietam,
Fredericksburg, ChaiiaaJkxsviiie, Gettysburg,
Petersburg, enduring all sorts of hardships and
privations in her heavenly mission. While
employed on board the hospital boat Louis
ville, Ky., she fell an,d injured her spine so
severely that her recovery is doubtful. The
accident occurred last March. Anxions to reach
her sons, one of whom has been with Sheri
dan’s army and lost bis teg in battie, she start
ed from Louisville for Pittsburg, but her suf
ferings were much more increased by the jar
ring of the boat, and she was compelled to re
main in Cincinnati, and is comfortably cared
for at St.. John’s hospital, at the expense of
the Christian Commission, under whose sanc
tion she has labored. Her sufferings are very
severe, but she endures them with becoming
Many Christian friends visit this excellent
lady, and do what they can to alleviate and
cheer her In her afflictions. While seated bv
hei the other day, she said to the writer, “It
seems so mysterious that I should, be. laid a ide
from the work I love so touch, to 'bb a Wrden
and expense to others. Happily the war is ov
er, or I could hardly endure my affliction- ltat
my heavenly Father fasAwA what Is- best; and I
try to say, ‘Not as I will, bat as thou wilt.”
Many predhus lives were saved by this ex
cellent woman. After the battle of Chancel
lorsvilie, there lay 1,500 wounded men, suffer
ing hunger, thirst, and excruciating agonies,
Mrs. Fogg was first oh (he ground to relieve
(heir sufferings and supply their wants. Not
withstanding all she has endured herself, she
rqoioes that her labors have been Crowned
with blessed results. Two years since she
travelled througe Maine to enlist the sympa
thies of people for the suffering soldiers. Cer
tificates from nearly all the Generals in the ar
mies where she has labored are in bar posses
sion- She is quite anxious to hear from
her son. He knows nothing of her accident,
nor she of his place of residence. Should this
meet the eye of any one acqt^aiuted with him,
they will confer a favor by at once informing
him, and writing her at St John’s hosmtuf

Pobtland, Me., and Wabd Eleven
Boston. —The city of Portland, Me., had
about the same population a3' the Eleventh
Ward, Boston, though she may somewhat lead
by the present census. And yet the income
returns show a great difference, as will be seen
by the following statement:—Incomes over
$o,000, in Portland, 6£; In Ward ffleven, Bos
ton, 495. Incomes over $20,000, in Portland
6; in Ward Eleven, Boston, 100. ’
As the Ward alluded to is by ho means tha
richest in Boston, and as Portland is a most
prosperous and money-making city, with many
large business firms, ft is evident that, if cof.
rect returns were given, there could not be
such a great disparity, of eight to one in the
$5,000 incomes, and twenty to one in the in
comes over $20,000. The large cities we
think, as a general thing, have been more’nar
ticular in making correct returns than the
country towns and smaller cities.—fUnatm,
Traveller. “
In publishing the income returns for Port
land we took from the Assessors books the
names ofthose only who-e balances amounted
to $5,000 and over. These did not include
the large number of owners of bank shares
bonds, Ac., who have paid taxes on semi-an
nual returns of the banks, and which amounts
were deducted by the Assessors from their in
come tax. The published Ust by no mean*
shows the number of persons in this city
whose income exceeds $6,000.

, T. A Broken-Down System.
There is a disease to wWoU the doctors give many
names, bat which few of them understand. It Is
simply weakness—a breaking down of the vital forces.
Whatever its causes, (and they are innumerable,) Its
symptoms are in the main the same. Among th.
most prominent are extreme lassitude, loos of appe
tite, loss ol flesh, and great mental depression. In
digestion and a Stomach Cough are also frequently
concomitants of this distressing state of body and
mind. The common remark in relation to persons
in such a condition is, that they are consumptive.—
Now, what these unfortunates really want is vigor
vital strength; and as certainly as dawn suoceeds
darkness they can recuperate their systems and* re
gain perfect health by reacting to HOSTETTER’S
that a life-reviving tonic Is required in such cases, as
that the dying flhme of an empty lamp requires to be
revived with a new supply of oil Perfectly pure and
innocuous, containing nothing but the most genial
vagetable extracts, and combining the three grand
elements of a stomachic and alterative, and a genial
invigorant. Hob tetter’s Bitters are suitable to all
constitutions, and are as applicable to the diseases
and disabUiti s of the feebler sex as to those ol men.
