He is an old ship master, and has served with credit in the Na vy-having been a volunteer lieutenant in command of ship Onward, in 1863. But, un fortunately, he bears a strong resemblance to the description given of Fitzgerald. He was released in Portsmouth soon after his arrest and went to Boston, at which place he was again arrested on Tuesday, but was released from custody Wednesday morning, it having been most clearly ascertained that he had no connection whatever with the robbery, and that he is entirely a different person from the robber described, although the description Jus tified bis arrest. A Thing that Will Cut Both Wats. The following circular has been received by some business firms in this city: Boston, June 15. We beg leave to inform our customers that after the 30th day of June, bills of all State Banks in New England, will not be received for deposit by the Boston Banks. Consequently, on and and after June 25th, all settlements must be made in National Bank Billsor United States Treasury Notes. Yours respectfully, Lewis, Brown & Co. The object of this movement is undoubtedly to compel merchants and lumbermen of our city to keep their deposits in Boston. We agree with theWAip that it is one of the most stupid as well as unjust of movements. Our State Bank bills are redeemed in Boston, and should be received on deposit the same a3 na tional bills.—Bangor Times. Steadman and Fullerton’s Statements Again Denied. Gen. Howard has received a letter from Gen. Scott, the Assistant Commissioner of the Freedmen’s Bureau for South Carolina, posi tively denying the statement Id the reports of Gens. Steedman and Fullerton that Kev. Mr. French and Lieut. Lott, Bureau officers are engaged in planting. Mr. French and Lieut. Lott simply loaned money to a Mr. Hanalian to enable him to work a plantation under a contract, by which the freedmen are to have a share of the proceeds ot the crop. Neither of them have had anything to do, directly or in directly, with the crop, nor with the freedmen on the plantation, which is under the control of the owner and is fifty miles distant from Charleston wheie they are stationed.

Notice is given to holders of certificates of Indebtedness, Issued under the acts of Con gress, approved March 1st and 17th, 18(12, that the Secretary of the Treasury, in accordance with sfiid acts and the tenor of said certifi cates, is prepared to redeem, before maturity, ali certificates of indebtedness falling due af ter August 3d, with accrued interest t hei eon, if presented for redemption on or before July loth, 1866: and that thereafter such certifi cates will cease to boar interest, and will be paid on presentation to this Department, with interest only to said 15th of July. The President has authorized the issue of a pardon to A. T. Bcdloe, who, in the early part of the rebellion, occupied the position of As sistant Secretary of War in the Confederate Cabinet. His pardon was earnestly recom mended by O. H. Browning and others. Canadian Finances* Ottawa, June 27. The Finance Minister o.cugtit uown the budget last night. The expenditures tor the past year amount to $12,100,000, of which $270,000 was applied to the reduction ot the public debt. The expenditures include all the charges incurred on account ot the Fenian raids. The customs have realized over $1, 000,000; exports’ excess $900,000. The whoie trade of the province has increased $18,000, ■ 000. The expense incurred in consequence ot the Fenian raids was $1,100,000. The Finance Minister alluded to the effectual manner in which the United States Government had dealt with the Fenians, but said the Fenian snake was scotched, not killed. The duty of the Province was to be in a position to more effectually repel agressions, consequently in stead of $50,1)00, heretofore asked tor military purposes, gl,500,000 were placed on the esti mates. In consequence of the abrogation of the reciprocity tieaty, it became imperative to rearrange the customs. The estimated falling off in revenue is $1,000,000. To supply the deficiency the following is proposed: “To raise the duty on spirits from 30 to 60c per gallon; to raise the custom duty on whiskey and brandy to the specific standard of 70c per gal lon ; to levy a duty on Indian com and coarse grains Irom the States of 10c per bushel; to levy a duty on flour coming from the States of 50c per barrel; to abolish the free ports of Gaspe and Sauit Stemone.

The steamship Java, from Liverpool 16th, and Queenstown 17th Inst., arrived here at 6.30 this evening. Th« Rten^hlp Cuba, from Boston, arrived cut on the 16th. a-v i tuL-iui Diet having on the 15th, by a vote of 9 to 6, agreed to the Austrian proposal for the mobilization of the federal army, Pins sia agreeably to previous notice carried out her threat to consider it as an act of hostility on the part of those States which supported i it, and on the following day commenced war by sending troops into Saxony and Hanover. It wa3 also rumored, but not confirmed, that Austrian troops have entered Saxony. It is believed, however, that P.enedek would immediately move to attack the Prussians. The Emperor of Austria, in his speech to the Vienna Common Council, said nothing re mained but the sword. ' After the action by the Federal Diet, the Prussian Bepresentative protected against it as unconstitutional. It is said Prussia considered the Confedera tion dissolved and immediately withdrew trom The Diet. Austrian representatives moved, and the Diet resolved, that the Federal Diet was indissoluble. There is great commotion and financial de pression to Germany. Bicasoli is forming a new Italian ministry. La Marmora goes to the front with the King aa Minister without a portfolio. News from other countries unimportant. -The Atlantic cable is finished. The Great Eastern leaves Slierness J uue 31). The ex-rebel cruisers Tallahassee and Suru na have been sold at Liverpool. La France believes the rumors of the in tended abdication of Maximilian unfounded. Latest via Liverpool. Liverpool, June 16tA—The action of the American Government towards the Fenians in the United States, gives general satisfac tion. The Times to-day eulogizes the Washington Government, and says it wo-dd be impossible to exaggerate the good faith, friendliness, sin cerity and regard for mutual obligations which have prompted these decisive measures. The American Government has acted in a manner which even exceeds anything that could reasonably have been expected from the most friendly nation. The Article expresses gratification that such distinguished officers as Grant and Meade should have been sent to*'the scene, and says: “These energetic acts of genuine friendship will be long and cordially remembered. The Fenians are almost entitled to thanks lor hav ing given the Americans an oecasion for dis playing their friendliness and good feeling.” At the closing of this dispatch there is no news of any collision in Germany. A Prague telegram of the 26th says the Prussians occupy Laban and Zottan, and men ace Schkenditz and Zei.z. The railway between Biesa and Dresden has been destroyed, and passenger and postal (•mmnnication between Prussia and Saxony stopped. The Crown Princess of Saxony proceeds to Vienna. The Saxony Treasury, valuables and provis ions for the army have beeu transported to Bohemia for security. A Frankfort dispatch says Prince Charles, of Bavana, will be appointed Commander-in Chief of the federal army. It was expected that Mecklenburg would af ford ag active support to Prussia for the de fence Schleswig Holstein. ft it as asserten at- runs ibat the proceed ings of the Federal Diet had determined sev eral of the Powers who signed the treaty of Vienna of 1815, to declare in their opinion that Articles 54 and 03 of that treaty, which form a part of the European international law. have been violated. The Austrians had interrupted all the lines of communication on their side of the Po and Mincio. Latest by telegraph to Queenstown. Liverpool, June 17.—The United States war vessels Augusta, Jliantonmali aud Asliuelot, arrived at Queenstown on the evening of the 16th inst. London, June 17.—The entry of the Prus sians into Saxony is fully confirmed, Prussia having previously declared war. The entry of the Austrians was hourly ex pected. Tue Paris Bresse publishes a report that the first engagement took place near Leipsic on the 16th. The rumor is unconfirmed.

Yon go down to the toot of State street, about bed time, any night in the week. There lies the steam er. By eleven o’clock you are sound asleep, and she is off. When you wake next morn ing, she is running smoothly up the beautiful Penobscot, and at twelve you land in Bangor. Returning, you leave Bangor at five in the morning, float drowsily down the river all the morning, retire for a siesta after dinner, and piesto! you are in Portland, in ample season for the late train for Boston, if you choose to go further— and fare worse. All this with out dust or cinders I W e arc not surprised to learn that the business on this line is in creasing both in the number of passengers and the amount of freight. The boats are thoroughly neat and tidy. Bates of freight have recently been reduced nearly-20 percent. “An Apple Blossom.” — We have re ceived from Mr. M. F. King, the well known photographer of this city, a beautifully photo ■ graphed copy of a new medallion by Akers, bearing the above title. It Is a very admira ble reproduction of the original, and an excel lent specimen of the art in which Mr. King excels. The medalliou from which it is t»ken is one of Akers’ latest works, and also one of the best which has come from his moulding hand. It represents a vo'-y youthful and beautiful female, with the hair drawn back f om the smooth temples and bound with a fl let in which is thrust a single apple blossom Toe sentiment of the thing is charming, and the execution extremely satisfactory. Lover., of art will find it well worth a visit to the sculptor’s studio to examine It. Copies of the photograph, which is copy-righted by Mr. King, can be obtained at his rooms on Middle street. Thundeb Stobm.— Wednesday afternoon we were visited with a thunder storm, accom" panied with a very heavy wind. So violent was the wind tor a short period that several trees were blown over in the upper part of the city and piles of boards were promiscu. ously scattered. The trees on Canal street, at , the corner of Park street, around which ex cavations had been made, to the roots, were blown over, and fell into the street taking with them the telegraph wires.

Upon arriving there, thiy were very genuinely surprised, though they ought not to have been in these days of bieat ing and entering houses, to find their resi dence open and a goodly number of tl elr friends ready to receive them with open anrs aid hearts. Alter an hour spent in the i x amination of the presents, which were ah f paper in some form, such as green-backs “i. bond” and otherwise, postage stamps, fine en gravings and books, envelopes, note an i sen mon paper, photographs, cards marked, et> the worthy couple appeared upon the seen Arrayed in complete suits of paper, which wen as unique a3 they were beautiful. That o' Mrs. Hewes was really beautiful, of whites paper neatly trimmed; the collar, handker chief and fan were of elegant and artistic fic isj; while that of Mr. Hewes was as appar ently strong and suitable for wear as if it hat been of cl ith. Rev.

The special topic announced for next Wednesday is the lower formJ of Mollusks, as Clams, Muscles, Oysters, &c. It is to be hoped that more favorable weather will give to all holders of tickets an opportunity of hearing what can be said for this very useful class of creatures.

There will be a perfec: jam to-night. Coal.—At the Merchants’ Exchange may be seen a specimen of coal “found on Ex change street,” also a “specimen of rock fount hard by.” Both of these specimens look we 1 and no doubt there are plenty more of the same kind “in that vicinity.” We have no; heard that any company has been formed tc work Exchange street or “hard by,” but have no doubt it will prove as profitable to do it a. to work the “Raymond mine,” and that fhll a. much coal will be obtained.

July Fourth at the Park.—It will be seen by the advertisement, that seven entries tor the great purse of $250 to be trotted for on the afternoon on the 4th have been made.

Almost a Fire.—Yesterday forenoon the dwelling house of Rev. F. Morrill, No. 17 Me chanic street, caught fire on the roof, from sparks from a chimney in an adjoining house.
