A Remarkable Exhibition will be Open To Night. The great exhibition known as the “ Milto nian Tableaux of Paradise Lost,” from Lon don, England, where it was exhibited for two bundled and eighty consecutive nights to over a half million people, will visit this city this week, and be exhibited at Decring Hall for a short lime. We copy the following description of the exhibition from the London Time*: “ This great work of art was gotten up in London, England, at an expense of $60,000, and is a complete illustration of John Milton's Immortal Poem entitled Paradise Lost,” and carrying out hia idea of Heaven, Hell, Chaos and Paradise. Showing the Rebellion of Sa tan, the War of the Augels, the fall of Satan, and the faff of Man. It was first exhibited in London for two hundred and eighty consecu tive nights, and was during that time visited by more than half a million of people, includ ing royalty, nobility, the gentry and clergy.— By command of Queen Victoria, it was set up in the Hall of Buckingham Palace, and exhib ited before her and the entire Court. as uoscrioeu oy Alilton, it commences with a scene representing the gathering of the an gels around the Almighty’s throne to hear a new decree, that His only Son, that day be gotten, should henceforth reign supreme in heaven; then is intioduced the banquet of the angels upon the plains of heaven; the night encampment of the angels by the rivers of Bliss; Satan, with his followers, plotting the rebellion; the marching of heaven’s host to put down the rebellion; the three days’ battle between the hosts of heaven and the rebellious augels, aud the final triumph of the Son of God, when the chariot of Paternal Deity, with thunderbolts and fire of heaven, drives Satan and the rebel host out of heaven into hell.— Then follows eight magnificent scenes repre senting the creation, commencing with the surging waters of Chaos, and ending with the creation of animals and man. After which Pandemonium or hell, with Satan aud the fall eu angels upon the burning lake. Satan’s Council in Hell, and Satan’s ilight from IJeli through Chaos in search of this earth. Then 'following in direct order, as described by Mil ton, is shown the Garden of Eden, with Adam and Eve; the temptation of Eve, her fall; the tall of Adam; the judgment of God, and the expulsion from the Garden.” The exhibition is pronounced by the ehtire press and competent judges to he the finest work of art gotten up in modem times, and worth miles of travel to see. We predict a great lush to Dcering Hall while it is here, as it will undoubtedly prove one ci the most attractive exhibitions ever op ened in the city. Look out tor the hills which will he circulated throughout rhe city. Union (Sub Exhibition of Painttnjcs. Saturday evening, in company with a few others, we had the pleasure of examining the collection of paintings to he exhibited this week at the Union Club Booms, for the bene fit of the Freedmcn’s Fair. It is impossible to express the delight we experienced in viewing tliis collection. Tliere arc about seventy-five pictures, all from eminent artists, and it is the richest exhibition ever offered in Portland.— The pictures are the individual property of members of the Club, and have been got to gether for the purpose of aiding the noble cause of the Fair. Our citizens should take advantage of this opportunity now offered them, of seeing this splendid collection of paintings. It is not probable they will have that oppoitunity very soon again. After viewing the collection they will agree with us, that all honor is duo the members of the Club for bringing together these bright and beautiful creations of the pencils of artists. Pleasant Resobt.—One of the pleasant est resorts in Boston i3 A. K. Loring’s cir culating library, on Washington Street, where may be had the newest publications and the most recherche novelties in stationery. Such od establishment we can now boast of, and no longer sigh for the privileges of a life in Bos ton, for two enterprising young men, Messrs. Geyer & Calef, have taken the new store No. 13 Free Street, fitted in the most elegant and tasteful manner, and will be prepared to ex hibit to their inends and the public generally to-day, a very choice stock of Crncy goods and foreign and American stationery.

The collection of articles is the most nu merous that has ever been exhibited in this State.

LEGISLATURE OJ? MAINE. The Legislature adjourned sine die Satur day morning. We are unable to give the pro ceedings of thai body on Friday as no paper was issued from tbe Journal office ou Satur day. This does not look very well for tbe State paper, and does not show much energy in the proprietors of that establishment. l)y the way, the Journal has not given any ac count of the Union Caucus held at Augusta Wednesday evening. From the Boston Advertiser we copy the following in relation to the passage of the na tional resolves: State House, Augusta, Me., Feb. 23. Ttie national resolves were passed upon to night by the House. Only two elected as union members failed to stand up with tbe great majority on tbe passage of the resolves thanking our senators tor the action of the Presidential veto, and indorsing the un ion majority in Congress. There has been somewhat of a reaction since the caucus of Wednesday fight, many of the strongest un ion members believing that it might bo possi ble to avoid a breach between the President and the party which elected him. Some, therefore, regretted the strong position taken the other night, and there was talk of adopt ing some kind of a resolve indorsing tbe Presi dent. The news of to-day, with the extraoi dinary speech of the President, changed the aspect of affairs, and there was a visible stiffening up when the question on the adoption of the re solves sustaining our senators, adopted by tbs caucus, came up. A resolve was proposed a3 a substitute by a democrat, thanking the Presi dent for his veto. This was voted down by yeas 12, nays 94. The only one elected as a republican who fail ed in this emergency was J. H.Burieigh, Esq.,of South Berwick, who in a lew remarks express ed himself as not in favor of passing resolves which could by implication be constructed as condemnatory "of 'the President. He in dorsed Andy Johnson, while there were many things in the course of Congress which he could by no means approve. The vote having been declared as staled, the question was tak en on tlic adoption of the resolve, which le sulted in yeas 95, nays 12; Mr. Burleigh being joined in bis secession by J, C. Nichols, Esq., ot bearsport. Mr. Burioigh then offered a3 an additional resolve the one proposed in the House the other day, indorsing the President in the fol lowing terms: “Resolved, That this Legislature expresses its sincere confidence in the integrity, ability and patriotism of President Andrew Johnson, who braved secession in the Senate and defied rebellion in Tennessee, who sprang from the people and is identified with their interest; and the loyal citizens of Maine -vill give him -their hearty support, in his labors for a com plete and permanent restoration of the Union on (be basis of liberty and impartial justice.” Mr. Slevens of Augusta proposed as a sub stitute for the above, the following: “Resolved, That this Legislature expresses the opinion that the loyal citizens of Maine will give their hearty support to Andrew Johnson, in all proper efforts for the complete restoration of the Union on the basis of hu man rights and political and civil equality of the American people, irrespective of color.” This substitute was adopted. The follow ing was added: “ReSolved, That in the union majority of Congress, this Legislature recognizes a noble array of tried defenders of the principles of constitutional liberty, and reposes with confi dence in their wisdom and patriotism, for the settlement of the question appropriately per taining to the legislative department of the government.” The whole series was then adopted. The Senate struck out the resolve relating to the President, and the House subsequently con curred. Mr. Burleigh was a delegate at large from this State to the National Convention which nominated Lincoln and Johnson. A ____ _;_ Excitement in Court.—In the Supreme Judicial Court, at Bangor, on Thursday, there was considerable excitement caused by the proceedings in some liquor cases. According to the Times it appeals that certain cases were to be removed from the State to the U. S. Court. The Deputy U. S. Marshal Mr. Head, attempted to arrest one of the prison ers, just as his trial wa3 about to commence, and took him into the jury room without in forming the Courtol his proceeding. He then attempted to remove the prisoner from the ju ry room, but was resisted by the Sheriff and his deputies. High words ensued, in which Messrs. Me Criiiis, Flagg, Arvida Hayford, Dr. Joulan, and H. Me Laughlin took part, and in the attempt to remove the prisoner a col lision ensued. The jailor shut the back door and prevent ed egress that way. Jordan, Hayford, and Me Laughlin attempted to open it but were resisted by the officers of the Court. At this juncture, Judge Cuttiug stepped to the door and commanded a cessation of hostilities and ordered all parties to come into Court, which was obeyed.* Silence restored, the Court inquired of Mr. Head if lie had a precept against the prisoner. Mr. Head presented it. After examining the paper, and intimating his distrust as to the nature and tone of it, the Court decided to stay proceedings in that Court for the present, and directed the Marshal to take the prisoner away, expressing the earnest hope to Mr. Head that he would take him and the other two prisoners to Portlaud at once and keep them there. The Court then administered a severe, re buke to the disturbers of the order and digni ty of the Court, remarking that they were without excuse and ought to be ashamed of -themselves. Thereupon suitable ajio logics were made to the Court by the counsel, und the Court adjourned. KY TELEGRAPH, TO THE DAILY 1»HESS. Monday Morning, February 26,1866. XXXIX CONGRESS—First Session.

The Oxygen Is breathed directly into the Lungs, and through them carried into the Blood; thus as soon as the Blood will carry it, it reaches all parts ol the system, decomposing the impure matter in the blood, and expelling it through the pores. Coughs, Colds, and Lung Affections, as well as Humors of the Blood are caused by breathing im pure air; impure air is caused from its lack of Oxy gen. In some portions of California, where the air is thoroughly impregnated with Oxygen, Lung Affec tions are unknown, and Humors—unless heredit ary—are never seen. This goes to show that nearly all the ailing 8 of our nature are caused from a lack of oxygen in the air we breathe. By this system ot treatment the patients will not have to EXPERIMENT for MONTHS to learn whether they are being Benefited. I Good reaulte are experienced upon the tint trial; and bat few applications are nceeseary to o fleet a cure in an; curable case. The Inventor of this Bemed; baa given it in over 25,000 Extreme Cases! personally. A large number ol these patients hod been suffering FOE YEARS with diseases enumer ated above, and had been Hopelessly Abandoned! By their PHYSICIANS, And were considered Fax Beyond the Reach of Any Medicine, Yet a few applications of 0 X Y a E 1ST ! were only required to impart new life to the wasted systems and to return them to PERFECT HEARTH. DR. ROCKINGHAM, Would say, to those Interested, that he has bad an extensive Experience with tbo remedy, and in offer ing his services to the sick, he does so with the assur ance that he restore them to HEALTH. THE OEHSriON « Which has so generally prevailed among all classes 01 people that Consumption is Incurable, IS FALSE. This opinion Is based upon AN ERROR IN ITS TREATMENT. It has been fully demonstrated that CONSUMPTION and all its correlated maladies of th« NOSE. THROAT, AIR PASSAGES, and LUNGS, cannot be cured by POURING MEDICINE INTO THE STOMACH, for the simple reason that medicines introduced into the system in this way never reach the lungs in an effective manner, hut on the contrary, would troquently do harm where they were designed to do good; hence came the opinion that Consumption was incurable. I wish to be distinctly understood that 1 do not claim to cure every case ot Consumption, Asthma, Bronchitis, &c., that is presented for treatment, but I wish to impress the fact clearly that CONSU PTION Can Be Cured! -BY THE Inhalation of Oxygen! IF TAKEN IN TIME. I say this on tho authority of over 2000 cases of CONFIRMED CONSUMPTION that have come un der my observation in the last two yean with this remedy. DR. ROCKINGHAM, Would inform Ladies Suffering from any disease pe culiar to them, that his treatment reaches their troubles at once. CF The Doctor's charges are such that treatment comes within tbe’reach of all. Patients in the Country who arc unable to visit the Doctor's Office personally, are reqnesteh to write. A candid opinion will be given in all cause, and if de sired remedies can be had at your own homes. CONSULTATION, FOB THE PRESENT, FREE! W Office hours from • A. M., till 5 P. If. K+ J. C.

AN some boilers 700 degs. of heat is thrown away, making a loss of 1-3 the fuel. The question is olten asked how can this be saved. Mr. Blanchard has invented a boiler that takes perfect control ot ali the heat and makes it do duty in the engine. This is very simple in its construction; alter the engine is in motion the smoke pipe is closed tight, and the waste heat carried through heaters, heating the steam to any temperature desired; the remainder carried through the water heater, using up all the waste heat but 200 degs.; the heat being roduccd so low there can be no danger of setting tires by sparks thrown frsrn engines, which will add much value to this invention, besides the saving 1-3 tho ftiel.
