Fourth Page—An Autumn Song; Smoking in Prison; Swiss Matchmaking. The Argus, which has accepted very unwil lingly the awkward burden of Pendleton’s |h>1 icy of national repudiation, undertakes now to mask its position by oracular utterances and inconsequential questions. The following string of currency conundrums, propounded to the Press with a very wise air, may serve to illustrate these ingenious tactics; Was the enactment of the legal tender act, by which debts contracted in gold currency were made payable iu greenbacks at an esti mated average depreciation of some thirty per cent.—was this repudiation bv Congress to that extent? W as the act of the legislature of Pennsylva nia paying the interest of the public debt of that State in greenbacks instead ot gold, the currency in which the debt was contracted, re pudiation by that legislature to the extent ot the depreciation of greenbacks? Was a similar act passed by the legislature of New York paying the interest on the debt of that State in depreciated paper currency instead of gold, repudiation li.v that legisla ture to the extent of the depreciation ol the substituted currency? AV’edo not. propose to lie di verted from the main question by any easua 1 talk about New York or Pennsylvania. At another time, if it should ne uecessarv, we are quite willing to discuss the financial policy of those States; but it is plainly necessary to cousider first the ac tion of Congress, of which the legislation of New York and Pennsylvania was a conse quence. Was the enactment of the Legal-Tender act, then, Repudiation? Most certainly not. Repudiation is the re fusal on the part ot a government to pay its debts. The United States by the terms of the Legal-Tender act expressly provided for the payment ol interest on the public debt iu gold. Greenbacks are not legal-tender for iuterest on tlie public debt. The Republican party in sists also that they arc uot legal-tender for the principal of the debt. The Democratic party pretends that the principal is payable in green backs, and for that pretence we can find no better name than Repudiation. There was, it is perfectly evident, no stain of Repudiation upon the Legal-Tender act; but suppose there had been! Would repudia tion in 1862 justify repudiation in 1868? Is that the conclusion which the Argus would roach? Were there not reasons in 1862 which might palliate so disgraceful a transaction, and which no logger exist? Secretary Cobb, of Georgia, a Democratic Secretary, had just left the Treasury bankrupt. He had supplied his daily wants by selling Treasury notes at 12 per cent, discount. He had tried to place a ! loan of ten millions, and tlie bidders lor three millions had chosen to forfeit tlieir initial de posit rather than to take aud pay for their bonds. Such was the credit of the United States at the close of the last Democratic ad ministration, which marked also the beginning of a Democratic rebellion. If under such cir cumstances the United States government hail refused to pay its debts, there would have been some color of excuse for the refusal. It would have appeared to be a case of bankruptcy.— Such a refusal now would he inexcusable sheer swindling—and the politicians who ad vocate it will learn next year what the Ameri can people think of them. We have answered the Argus, according to its request, “frankly and unequivocally.” We confess to no little astonishment at the ques tion, hut we are nevertheless prepared to say now or at any time, that the enactment of the Legal-Tender act was nol “repudiation,” nor burglary, nor arson, nor so far as we a Co in formed, malfeasance of any kind. A National Chamber of Commerce.— There is some talk in the papers of the organ ization of a National Chamber of Commerce, to be composed of delegates from the various local commercial associations throughout the country. If this is not “too good to be true” there is a prospect of the formation of a body whose deliberations will be of the greatest as sistance to Congress and to the whole people. Composed of the leading business men of the country, it would at once become an auxiliary power of great influence in determining the course of legislation on matters of vital im portance. If such a chamber had been organ ized a few years ago, the transportation of merchandise by sea wonld not, as now, be al most wholly lost to this country. The matter would have been presented to Congress iu so incontrove^^JjJ^tlSfouf coinlnerciai Tiuuifte would have now been in a fair way to regain the commanding position it held before the war. Portland and Ogdensburg Railroad.— The citizens of Fryeburg, interested in the early completion of the Portland and Ogdens burg railroad, with a view to ascertaining dis tances .and the general character of the coun try through which it might go, have instituted a thorough survey of the different routes through the towns from Rattlesnake Mountain in Conway, New Hampshire. With the aid of Denmark and Sebago the survey has been con tinued through these towns to the foot of Se bago Lake, covering the entire line. Me en gineers are now engaged in preparing a plan which will be a perfect map in itself, and will soon be forwarded to the corporators. ' A sim ilar preliminary survey is now being made through Brownfield and Hiram—both by Con way Center and Fryeburg—from the same point in Conway. Sympathy with Fenianism in England.— How grave a step the English government took last Saturday in executing three Fenians, may be gathered from the following statement made by the London correspondent of the New York Times, under date of Nov. 10: The St. Luke’s branch ot the Reform League resolves that the moral justification of Fenian ism is to he found in the crimes of the British Government against our Irish lellow subjects; that their implacable hatred of the governing classes of the country, as expressed in Fenian ism. is in fact but the natural and inevitable result of their conduct toward them, and we neither believe nor desire the cessation ot that hatred and hostility except by the redress of the wrong and injustice that they have given birth, but on the contrary deem it our duty to openly exnress our deep sympathy with, and commisseration for, those who have been forc ed by the accumulated crimes of our rulers in to the adoption of those sentiments. This resolution, supported by bold and ener getic speeches, was carried unanimously. It is difficult to say bow far this kind of sympa thy extends, but it is not peculiar to the work ing men, for Lord Verbers has written a letter to the Pall Mall Gazette, saying that tin Fe nian rescue at Manchester bad so much ot a belligereut character that it would lie improp er to execute as murderers those who wetc en gaged in it, and, it they are executed, I believe that their deaths will he bitterly avenged. If arrested t en more may be convicted and exe cuted, and so the bloody work will go on. Un ' der these circumstances it would be better for the English Government to follow the exam ple of that of the Pope which cither had re leased, or will soon release, all his Garibaldian prisoners, while Garibaldi iiimselt, after all the bloodshed he has caused, is, it is said, only to be bauished to America. Important to Fishermen.—A special dis patch to the Boston Journal says: General Butler, in examining the Treasury regulations concerning the fishing interests, has discovered that the French fishermen, who receive a bounty of five francs per quin IS .0!. . are permitted to bring it to a!ul 10 s" repack it in our bonded >™Mat !l comea into competition ,,y 0111 fishermen, wbo re ceive no bounty. At the request of General Butler, Secretary McCuYlotd,has .Gri‘ted Hon. Timothy Dams of Gloucester to ex amino into and reporton this subject. The Treasury has decided to issue instructions to Collectors to permit fishermen to give bonds ior three years for the payment of duties on so much of their salt as they do not use. This wiil obvi ate the necessity of making the fishing vessels bonded warehouses, as the fishermen will have now an opportunity to make a second trip and use their surplus salt without removing it from their vessels. Josi.cn Quincy’s Address to tlic Boston Board of Trade, on Kailway Monopolies, to which we have repeatedly referred, mav he found at Carter & Dresser’s bookstore. Political Notes. Montgomery Blair is discouraged about Gen. Grant and complains that he has failed to make such declarations as entitle him to the confidence oi Democrats. The Vicksburg correspondent of the Chicago Tribune writes:“They (the blacks)arc in favor of Gen. Grant for the Presidency to a man And why should they not he? Since the death o "‘coin tlieir.eyes have turned to Grant, a. in tie trne Israelites to Moses in the wil derness. There will be a hearing on the York Coun ty elections before the Governor an<1 c f., next week. Samuel B. Ay tel I. elected as a War Demo crat from the First Congressional District of California, cast his initial vote Thurwlay with the Republicans. The very last caucus of Democratic politi cians in Washington nominated Gen. Han cock tor President ami Judge Tburnyin of Ohio for Vice-President. pitdnmi- Am« <lr*,,K' A brief opera ] »eason will i+fin in our snaeiour and beautiful Hall on Monday evening Dee. i»th. Some ten years ago Mad ..Grunge appeared in our country, and everywhere she was received with much favor and enthusiasm. Her career in our cit ies was triumphant and the American public placed her in the front rank oflier profession. As an opera singer she lias but few equals and still less of superiors, Before she came hete to receive the plaudids o! the new world, she had been pronounced in the cities of the Old a musical st ar of the first, magnit ude, and Amer ican artists and lovers of music confirmed that decision, lu addition toiler merits as an ar tist, her private character is pure and her gen erosity is only hounded l.y the means within her cont rol and the objects of charity that may Hummnd her. We have not spare to w rite more in detail. We congratulate our citizens on the op|K»r tunity they will have, on the evening of the uintli of December, of hearing in full opera this celebrated pritnn donna whose fame is world-wide. Miss Adelaide Phillips will also appear. Miss Phillips is an artist who never fails in her roles, always doing well and dis arming criticism of its stings. Brignoli, 8arti) Susitii and others will he here with a full or chestra and chorus. We believe Portland has never witnessed such operatic performances as will lie given on this occasion, and we trust and believe they will he properly appreciated and fully patronized. But for our new City Hall we could not have such musical exhibitions arid on so broad a scale. The accoustic properties of this great music room have already been tested. The Germania Baud were highly gratified with it The performance ol a full opera will further test it. But we have no doubts on this ques tion. We venture the opinion that this hall is not excelled by any one on this continent, and we go farther and express the opinion that for fair proportions, chaste finish and [architectur al beauty, it lias no equal between the north ernmost boundary of Canada and Patagonia. The Boston Herald of Sunday had a New York dispatch of doubtful authenticity stating that the steamship South America would sail that day for St. Thomas, having oil hoard Gen. D. M. Tallmadge and two hundred troops, who go out to take possession of the island in be half of the United States. They take a large number of cases of rifles, a few heavy seige guns for harbor defence, a large quantity of aiuunition, shells, &c.,—all of which were stowed away in the hold and marked “ mer chandize.” The troops were all in citizens dress. The dispatch says everything pertain ing to this expedition has been conducted with the utmost secrecy, the design being to first have the gratifying announcement of our uetv acquisition heralded to the public soon after the meeting of Congress in December, by way of the Cuban cable. PROGRESS OF TRE PACIFIC RAILROAD.-j-An Omaha dispatch oi Sunday says that the Un ion Pacific Railroad is now finished 525 guiles west from Omaha to the eastern base of the Rocky Mountains, and it is expected that the track will be laid to Evaus’s* Pass, 30 miles further, and the highest point between the At lantic and Pacific Oceans, in January. The maximum grade from the foot of the moun tain* to the summit is but 80 feet to a mile, while that of many eastern roads is over 100 feet. Work on the rock cuttings on the west ern slope will continue during the winter, so ! that track laying may lie resumed early in the spring. The Cause of Ex-Governor Andrew's Death.—The Boston Medical and Supgical Journal has an appreciative notice^of the late Governor Audrew; and, in relation to the cause of his sudden and lamented death .•'ays, that the post mortem exaininatiou of the de ceased revealed an apoplectic effusion more extensive than had ever before come under the observation of our most eminent patholo gists. And that though, constitutionally pre disposed to the disease, Mr Andrew' probably might have lived many years, had he not over tasked his brain, particularly during the war, when it is said, ho did the mental work of lour men. About Dickens.—The Boston Journal grat ifies the curiosity of the thousands who are longing to know what the great novelist does aud says at Boston by the two little items , which we append: Mr. Dickens visited the School Ship Sunday afternoon, quietly, with Collector Bussell, and after hearing the singing of the boys, address ed them briefly with kind and practical re marks, well fitted to instruct his young audi ence and to make them recollect him with pleasure. One expression of Mr. D. will al ways be remembered by them: ‘‘Boys, jlist do all the good you can, and don’t make any fuss about it.” Every day at uoon, tbo author of the “Pick wick Papers” quietly leaves the Parker House for a ten mile walk into the countiy. He has always boeu noted for a vigorous pedestrian, e.viJy tiring down almost any companion vrj*£ pedition with him. But the companion of the “daily constitutional” in Boston is lully his match. A friend driving through Long Wood a few days ago met the pair striding on with great vivacity and with such velocity that he stood ouo side under the impression thkt a wa ger was pending between the two, and that it was a fresh start from Boston to Chicago* The Bostonians are immensely elated £|t the good time made by the new steamship “Onta rio,” of the American Steamship Company line, on her first trip f rom Europe. She arrived on Saturday evening in nine days from Queens town. The Boston Journal is confident that this lino will soon be in a situation to compete with the Ciraard. An Editor Shot.—The editor of the Cyn thia (Ry.) News was shot and dangerously wounded on Sunday by a brother of General Burbridge, for publishing an article criticising the acts ot the general while military com mander of Kentucky. Bnrbridgo was ar rested. Almost a Centenarian.—The Burlington Times says that Nathaniel Fullerton, Presi dent of the Bellows Falls (Vt.) Bank, was born iu 1775, and is consequently ninety-t^o years old. He remembers Gen. Washington, whom lie saw at Worcester, Mass , and also many events connected with his Presidential admin istration as well as the period of confederation. He still attends to business with great fidelity, andqdays euchre with all the enthusiasm of youth. He has a son sixty-three years old whom he styles a “boy.” He is probably the oldest Mason, the oldest Bank President, and the oldest euchre player in the United States. Better than this, his long life has been marked by a strict adherence to the right, which has brought to his old age honor and competence. “Woman’s Work in the CrvrL War.”—A work bearing the above title, a simple but mo=t eloquent record of the heroism, the pat riotism aud the patience with which the noble women ol this country bore their part in the great struggle just past, has recently been pub lished by R. H. Curran, Boston. It is pre pared by Dr. L. P. Brockctt — known as the au thor of a “History of the Civil War,” “Life of Abraham Lincoln” aud other works—and by Mrs. Mary 0. Vaughan; and is prefaced with an introduction by Rev. Dr. B$llo dent of the U. S. Sanitary Commission. It contains sketches of nearly two hundred women distinguished for their labors in be half of the soldiers, refugees, and freed men, with abundant incidents of their work, and brief notices of three hundred others, while a just tribute is paid to the thousands of name less heroines who braved every danger and privation or quietly toiled, and sacrificed time, health, and many of them life to give aid and relief to the suffering soldiers. The “great uprising” of the people was not an uprising of the men alone. The women, too, rose up strong" undaunted, they saw what was their portion of the mighty struggle, they set them selves to do it, and from the beginning to the end they never faltered or failed. Of the amount of work done we may form some rough idea from the fact that fifty millions of dollars were raised by them aud appropriated to the benefit of soldiers aud their families; but410 statement can give any approximate idea of the amount of inoral aid whiah their attentions in the hospital and camp and the knowledge of their constant labors at home afforded to the loyal cause. They it was who really preserved the morale of the army. But for what they did the rebellion could scarcely have been subdued. The loyal women whose biographies arc here given came from all parts o< the loyal North. The selections have been made impartially so far as section of country is concerned. Many of the names arc familiar and honored in thi* city and State. Among them are the little group whom Dr. Vanderkieft used playfully to call the “Maine-stay” of the Annapolis Hos pital,” MissTiteomb, Miss Usher, Misses W alk er, Pierson, and New hall of this city, Mrs. Fogg of Calais whose labors were so indefatiga ble and effective, with many, many more whom but to name is to awaken thoughts of such womanly gentleness, such generous self-forgct fulucss. such a saintly patience and unfailing charily as exalt our estimate of the worth of this frail humanity. The book is very handsomely got up, and is embellished with sixteen engraved portraits representing some of the most noted of the he roines it describes. It is a work which should be in eveiy home, ol which every soldier es pecially who has had any hospital experience WV» wish to possess a copy. I his book is sold only by subscription; Mr. Darnel *rye is the agent for this city. A Family Party.—The descendants ot John Holden assembled at Hie House of Hen ry Holden, on Wednesday, 8th instant, to the number of seventy-five, for asocial interview uud dinner. We are informed by a member of the part) that the whole family was not ont, owing to the unfavorable weather, hut the gathering was certainly respectable in point of numbers? The assembly being so large, it was necessary to observe something of parliamen tary form, and the meeting was accordingly organized by the choice tot'J. W. Holden pres ident of thp day and Ephraim Nutting secreta ry. Committees on arranging the tahles and on special introduction were then appointed, and in good time dinner was an turn need, and was prefaced by prayer by the chaplain of the day, Georgo P. Holden. Twenty-seven basketsliil ot fragments, we are told, were taken lip after the dinner was over, including two cakes “ as big as a meeting-house steeple.” We admit the cakes hut reject the steeple. The company wrere seated at three long tables, and the din ner appears to have been an old fashioned Thanksgiving festival—without the toddy, of which our informant says nothing. After din ner a “New Book ot Ghronicles,” written by G. B. Holden, of Washington, D. C., was read bv the secretary. The book sketches briefly tho history of the settlement of Olisfield by the “ patriarchs,” their manners and customs, the circumstances attending the erection of the “ temple on the mount,” the successive “ priesthoods,” etc., ending with a genealogy of the descendants of the original John Holden. After choosing a committee to arrange lor a re union next year, the party broke up. If John Holden had a hospitable turn and was not oth erwise engaged, and if the spiritualist theory is correct, it is iair to presume that he must have enjoyed the occasion very highly. Post Route Map.—We have received from the Post Office Department a copy of a new Po t Route map of the New England States, which will he of great service, not only to the Department but to the general public. The different routes are distinguished by a simple system, so that the mail service, six times a week, three times a week, twice a week, once a. week, or by special messenger may be read oft' at a glance. The mail service in the eastern and northern parts ol the State of Maine arc to bo represented on a separate map of the whole State, showing the connections with the Canadian Provinces. These maps are to he followed by a series of others, embracing in succession the other States, separately or in groups. Those of New York and the middle Atlantic States are in progress, and will short ly appear. Besides the distribution to Post masters for the service of the Department, these maps are for sale to the general public, and may be procured at the Department (Sec ond Assistant Postmaster General) or from the Sale Agents iu Philadelphia. New York, Bos ton and Portland (Bailey and Noyef.) Maine Quakers in Richmond,—The Rich mond New Nation says that Friend S. H. Jones, from Maine, is now engaged in that city, as Superintendent of the schools estab lished for the benefit of the Ireedmen by the New York Yearly Meetings. Mr. Jones takes the place of Miss Smiley who has resigned. The New Nation speaks of the Quaker schools in terms of warm commendation. Reasonable Request.—Will the Reader of the Pamphlet,“Crown Won hut not Worn,” published by Mr. Jonas Green of Peru, sus pend his judgment upon its merits, until counter statements are submitted to the pub lic, which may materially alter the complex ion of the publication, and the flying reports. J. W. Hathaway. State News. CUMBERLAND COUNTY. We learn from the Oxford Democrat that on Monday, Nov. 10th, a man calling himself Isaac W. Bowen, hired witli Mr. George H. Brown, of North Brighton, to work at paint ing. Mr. Brown hod in his pocket book that morning $110, and left it iu his coat pocket, where Brown had access to it; hut he didn’t miss the money till the next Friday, when ho had occasion to examine the pocket-book. Bowen staid but a few hours with Brown, al leging that ho must go to his sister’s, at Po land, and get his clothing, but as he did not re turn, when Brown found his money gone, he suspected him and went in pursuit. He traced him to South Paris, where he found lie had bought a watch of Richards and.a ticket for Portland. Brown has several aliases, such as Chas. W. Parker, Charles W. Williams and William C. Williams. He was brought up by tiie Shakers in Poland, and lias been in State Prison for horse stealing, and pardoned out. He is about 20 years old. five feet three itches in height, and of tawny complexion. One of the occupants of the dwelling house of Dr. Buzzell, in Gorham, going to a room on the third floor, I'.^-'t Wednesday, found it full of smoke, hut no fire was to be seen. On open ing the windows and clearing the smoke, it was tuund that the top of a table, standing near the chimney, was entirely consumed, and also several articles on it uud a number of holes were burnt in the carpet. It appears tjpM the fire was^cjjpi jjunicated to the table by chimney to stop the draft ip the flue,"yet it was most wonderful that it should have extinguish ed itself without doing further damage. On Thursday evening, some one in want of corn, helped themselves to some sixty baskets from a corn house belong to Mr. Ezra Rich ardson, in Gorham. KENNEBEC COUNTY. The Waterville Mail describes with laudable pride a new passenger car just completed in that place for the Maine Central R. K. Com pany. It is a monitor car, fifty-two feet long, with all the latest improvements and inibel lislniients, and contains thirty-two seats which have the new style backs with double curve, a small but convenient saloon, and costs about $4000. PENOBSCOT COUNTY. The Bangor Whig has information of an in cendiary fire which took place in the locality known as “Hermou Hill ” Friday night. It seenis that four barns and the meeting-house of the Second Advent Society were Bet on fire, and three otthe hams were consumed. Ac tive exertions on the part of the neighbors were rewarded by the Tescue oftho meeting house and the largest barn from the flames with but slight damage. Of the three that were distroyed, two belonged to Mr. J. A. C. Mason, ami contained nine tons of bay. His loss will be about $ti00. The, other was owned by —. Roundy. hud was valued at $200. It is thought that Mr. Round y's barn was first set on tire, then the two small ones, the meeting house, and the large barn last. The barn which was saved contained perhaps fifty tons of hay, and was also tho property of Mr. Mason. The officer who investigated the matter became satisfied that rnm was the foundation of it. The Whig also learns that the stable of Mr* A. J. Comstock, in Passadumkeag, was entire ly destroyed by fire on Sunday morniug, to gether with eight tons of hay and eight har nesses. A horse belonging to Mr. Laiug was much injured, but not fatally. Loss about $1,500; uninsured. The fire is supposed to have been lucendiary. Potatoes were selling in Bangorron Satur day at ninety-five cents to one tiollar per bushel. The teachers in the public schools of Bau gor on Saturday evening presented their su perintendent, Mr. C. P. Rooerts, with a silver tea-service as a testimonial ol the apprecia tion in which liis services are held by them. The Whig is informed by the engineers of the E. & N. A. Railway that Hie track is now laid a distance of five miles up the river, and that they hope to complete the remaining three miles of the distance toOronotbis week. Work was suspended a portion of last week, because of the cold snap, but the contractors have now made arrangements so that they can act almost independently of the weather—as regards its temperature. The work of ballast ing is necessarily about a mile behind the end of the track, flic most of the gravel lieing brought from High Head; but on reaching Orono the coutractcrs will avail themselves of the pit on the Mayo farm, which will greatly expedite the work. Regular traffic on the road will be opened as soon as January next, at which time it is hoped it will be in working order to Old town. WASIIIFGTON. The Machias Republican gays Mr. Alline. In spector of Customs, made a line haul on Mon day last in the vicinity of Baring,—capturing a smuggler’s horse,—said to be a 2:40 nag. The team was partly loaded with Scotch whiskey, probably manufactured at * ^Scotch Ridge,’’ province of New Brunswick. As the Tug Boat Della was towing Schooner John S. Moulton Irom Machias to Machiasport on Tuesday last, she accidentally struck the the toll-bridge in passing the draw at high tide, and stove in the Moulton’s starboard how and forecastle, and doing considerable damage to the bridge. The Machias Republican says that Miss, Amelia Thaxter, daughter oi Mr. Ezekiel Thaxter, who wont to Europe early last a ring in the employ of a Sewing Machine nnpany in Connecticut, has iust returned to her home in Machias. Miss Thaxter went out to exhibit the workings of a certain kind of machine which she so fnlly understood that the Company preferred her services to all oth ers. She has made the entire journey through England and France, in the pursuit of her business, her employers treating her most lib erally and satislaetorily. The saw mills at East Machias have suspend ed operations for this season. The cold term has frozen up the river above the dams. The tide waters are open to navigation as yet. There will he a large amount of logging done on the Narraguagus river during the coming winter, says the Republican. The last winters stock has been nearly all manufac tured this season, consequently the mill own ers are obliged to operate more extensively. WALDO COUNTY. At Belfast on Thursday morning the mer cury was at zero for several hours. A letter from that city says a few miles back in the country it jg gJ0,i sleighing, and up towards the county line on the north over a loot of snow fell. Overcoats and mufflers are at par.

Kcv. Dr. Fairfield does not bring with him the prestige which in the case of some popular ly eeum lectures serves to pass off a hastily writ ten and vapid discourse as something of ex traordinary merit. But he brings with him from the West something of the.ffeshness, the sparkle, not to say abandon, of diction that be longs to the new and busy region from which he comes. It needs only deficiency of cul ture to make him a Western Boanerges of the “jumping forward” school. As it is, his radi calism is only of that legitimate kind which was admirably described by Josh Billings, . when he said that “if a man is right he can’t be too radical, and it he is wrong he can’t be too conservative.” In beginning his remarks he said that he proposed “a discourse upon the doctrine of roots;” not botanical, algebraic or etymologi cal, but political, philosophical and theological Nothing has been so much abused in this gen eration as radicalism, simply because itjis just out of its minority, and has not become suffi ciently understood to be appreciated. In dis cussing the subject he should speak of the - claims of radicalism, of the errors of conserv atism, and, lastly, ot some of the mistakes and lollies of professed radicals. The most strik ing and valuable suggestion, as it seems to us, that he made iu treating of the first topic, was the fact that genuine radicalism is eclectic. It * -,iT«Ji.y«eirh>veu irom the twin errors of as suming that whatever is, is right, on the one hand, or that whatever is, is WTong, on the other. It aims simply at determining what is truth, and accepts nothing simply because it is new, and rejects nothing solely because it is old. Amoug the chief heresies which conserv atism cherishes arc undue respect for the dead, an inordinate desire for peace and attachment to creeds. He tvoukl utterly discard the au thority of precedent as precedent, and throw away the trammels of authority which prove such impedimentesto the vigor and efficiency of at least two of the learned professions—the ology and law. Iu this part of his lecture Dr. Fairfield’s sentiments might have seemed not untinctured with latitudinarianism, if consid ered independently of the subsequent part of his discourse. But while deploring the un wise and unphilosophic theories of conserva tism, lie expressed an equal abhorrence for the radicalism which makes an indiscriminate on slaught upon everything, is obstinately blind to the dictates of reason, indulges iu intemper ance of language and action, and carries its scepticism so far as to rcjoct even the authori ty of Revelation. The speaker was listened to with the closest attention, and was frequently interrupted by applause. He hail every reason to be pleased with his audience, and his audience showed a keen appreciation of him. The excellent music furnished by the hand was an agreeable feature of the entertainment. The next lecture in this successful course will be by Gov. Chamberlain upon the subject of the “Surrender of Lee.” * r~s—--rr* A Skating Park.—We cannot help ex pressing tiic desire that Portland will this winter provide itself with a commodious and well regulated skating Park. There is not a city of our size on this continent to which is vouchsafed the blessings of zero weather, that has not ample accommodations for the indul gence of this exercise, while in some places it is regarded as the chief amusement in winter and large sums of money are permanently in vested in the establishment of “Parks” or “Rinks.” Since we must endure our intense cold, let ns put it to some uso, and oxtort from it at least'one ingredient of happiness, so that when it leaves us in spring it may not taunt us with the reflection that the only service wode manded of it was. that it should make ui as uncomfortable as possible. The Hanlon Combination appeared last evening at Deering Hall, before a crowded house, and the entertainment was worthy of the house. Of the gymnastic teats on the lad der and horizontal bars, and the tumbling, it is unnecessary to speak; the unapproachable ex cellence of the Hanlons in this direction is too well known. Of'the other leatures of the ,’n tertainment it is only necessary to say Hat they are precisely what has been promised— Madamoiselle Gertrude’s trained poodlesdo everything but talk—climb ladders, walkon their hind feet, or fore leet, turn somersants, laugh—we certainly saw and heard than laugh—dance, and it they don’t sing, it is simply because they are not Invited. Hary Uurc, the amphibious Englishman, appearsto pass his time very agreeably in his great ta*k, eating, drinking, and smoking under watern full view of the audience, and expressing Ms satisfaction by the most hideous contortionsof countenance. If he could only read the Pres, or some other entertaining miscellany, unfcr water, there would appear to be no necessity of his coming to the surface at all. At any rate ho appears to have no trouble abcut breathing. The Giant Heads, and the pecu liarly elastic bodies to which they arc attached, bodies which stretch like indiarubber Irom five to ten feet in height, kept the house in a roar during the whole of their unique performance. The Hanlons will appear every evening this week, with a varied programme, retaining however the chief attractions. Sudden Death.—An Englishman named .John B. Guerrou, lately employed as steward at the Marino Hospital, was found dead in hi* room at Mrs. Piper’s boarding house, on New bury street, yesterday morning. It is supposed that congestion was the immediate cause of his death, ns the complaints which lie luid been making for a few days concerning his health gave strong evidence of his being troubled in this way.

Win gate, corner Middle aud Temple streets, some splendid presents from the emplorees of the Androscoggin It. B. to Mr. Emery, the woithy Superintendent of that road. They consist of a magnificent, silver ice pitcher, a fine clock, set in bronze, silver spoon-holder, knives and forks, silver goblets, vases, &c. These articles are well selected, and show that Mr. Emery’s services are fully appreciated by those who are brought into immediate connection with him in performing their daily duties. The articles were purchased of Mr. Wingate, who has an assortment of jewelry in his new store that is well worth looking at. Weston.—A dispatch received from Water loo, ind., last evening, stated that Weston left that place at midnight Sunday, aud Gosheu Ind., at 1.40 P. M. yesterday. Waterloo is 138 miles from Chicago' aud Goshen 88 miles, mak ing the distance from Waterloo to Goshen fifty miles, which he walked in thirteen hours and forty minutes. The dispatch stated the roads were in very bad condition, and that it was raining quite hard, which makes it seem impossible ior him to wlak the remaining fifty miles in the time left him—ten hours and twenty minutes. Death of an Old Merchant.—Mr. Moses I. Plummer, oue of our oldest and most re spected oitizens, died at his residence at Allen’s Corner, Westbrook, at 4 o’clock yesterday morning. He was 78 years of age, and was engaged in the boot and shoe bpsinoss in this city from the year 1823 up to the time of the great fire—18G6,—when he retired from busi ness and took np his residence in Westbrook. The Dance Thanksgiving Evening.—The list of managers for the grand rc-union and dance at City Ha\l Thanksgiving evening, to bo given by the Army and Navy Union, fore tells that it is to be a grand affair. It is not to be a full-dress ball. The number of tickets sold must necessarily bo limited, so that it will he well to secure them as early as possible. A Good Time To-Night.—Bemember that the Eon Base Ball Club are to give a grand Promenade Concert this evening at City Hall, None that ever attended one of these dances will ask what it is to be, for they all know that a jolly good time will be had before the “home ruu”is made. Drowned.—a. man named MciLeuuey, a res ident of Nova Scotia, while in the act of step ping from the New York steamer to another vessel, Sunday night, fell between them into the water and was drowned.
