Xbe Maine Suit P««*> Published this morning, contains the Pro ceedings of Congress since the beginning of the adjourned session; a Classified List of Members of the Fortieth Congress; a review of the Impeachment Report; Gen. Grant s Testimony )>efore the Judiciary Committee; the Proceedings in the Case of Jefferson Da vis; a full account of the Arrest of Counter feiters of the 7-30 and 5-20 Bonds; letters from our correspondents in Washington, New Vork, aud Augusta; an article on the history ot Wheat Raising in Maine, by “Traxi;” to gether with the usual variety of selected mis cellany, foreign and domestic news, shipping news, market reports, &c., &c. The Impeachment Question is exciting more interest in Washington apparently than anywhere else. The price of gold was abso lutely unaffected by the report of the commit tee. Everybody seemed to uuderstaud that the favorable report simply marked the vacil lation of one man, Mr. Churchill, and he is merely a new member from the Oswego dis trict in New York of whom the nation knows nothing. The real question is whether the House will sustain the report, and that will probably be settled by the attitude of the Sen ate. The Boston Advertiser’s special corres pondent reports that throe prominent New England Senators, who spent a good part of Monday night and Tuesday forenoon in look ing through the printed volume of evidence, declare that impeachment cannot possibly he sustained on that testimony. There is a pret ty general feeling among anti-impeachment men that the case against the President is weaker now than before the report was made and the evidence brought into light. The main point in the report, as we have already slated, is what is called the President’s “usur pation” in reorganizing Congress. Now the pcoplo at large, while they have no special in terest in Mr. Johnson’s fate, do not care two straws for this usurpation. Their complaint against Mr. Johnson arises from his subse quent misconduct, and particularly from his removal ol Secretary Stanton in defiance of law. If he fails to explain that outrage satis factorily, there will be a strong desire to sre him removed. As the case stands now, there is a general indifference to the whole matter - a feeling that our Representatives have been sent to Washington to attend to this among other items of business, and mu st do what is right about it. Particular attention is due to the testi mony of Secretary McCulloch and Commis sioner Bollins before the Impeachment Com mittee, The Republican party has been oblig ed to endure the odium of all that has been irregular and faulty in the collection of the' revenue. The people have been exhorted to place Democrats in power, on the express ground that the corrupt Republican officials were wasting the substance of the people In profligate and riotons living, and subordinat ing the interests of the country to the interests of party. Now Mr. Johnson is a Democrat, and his administration is a Democratic admin istration, beyond all question. Jt is equally certain that Hugh McCulloch is a Finance Minister after his own heart. The Secretary is among the foremost supporters ot “my poli cy,” having made a public profession of that faith upon the occasion of the famous smokiug out serenade. Yet when Mr. McCulloch was examined on oath before the Committee, his fealty to truth outweighing that to Johnson, he testified that the revenues were not so well collected as they wauld have been if the origi nal appointees had been allowed to retain their offices. He also gave an account of in judicious removals by-order ot the President. The testimony of Commissioner Rollins afford ed still stronger evidence of the manner in which the President had sacrificed the revenue for the sake ot effecting partizan purposes. He said that few of the removals had been for dis honesty or incapacity, and that the removals by the President had caused the lo9s of sever al millions of dollars. There were men in the service whom he had asked to have removed us many as six times. In most districts where the officers had been changed a loss had occur red. In 240 collection districts 160 assessors had been removed. In States where removals were made, the best men were removed. Gen, Butler’s reply to Mr. Blaine on Tues day was ingenious, but unsatisfactory. Perhaps the best illustration ot his method of dealing with financial questions is his assertion that in 1864, Mr. Fessenden as Secretary of the Treasury, decided that the 7-30 Treasury notes of the first scries, issued in 1861, were payable in currency. If these notes were payable in currency, Mr. Butler argued, then a fortiori all other national obligations are so payable. This would not follow. A distinction was from the beginning made between the temporary and the long loans. The three-year loans were all to be paid, and have been paid, in currency, the object being to encourage investment in the long loans—a very good object too, considering the circumstances. But suppose the distinc tion unwise or unjust, is Mr. Butler going to tell us now that two wrongs make one light? that because we cheated our creditors in 1864, therefore we have a perfect right to cheat them in 1868? Besides, it turns out that Mr. Butler was not sure of his facts. Mr. Biaine, who re members everything, asked permission to read a single sentence, and proceeded as follows: The decision in regard to the payment of the first series of seven-thirtv notes was made on the 18th May, 1864, by Salmon P. Chase, Secretary of the Treasury, in these words: “the three year seven-thirty Treasury notes are part of the temporary wan, and will be paid in Treasury notes, unless the holders pre ler to exchange them,” &c. That was two months before Mr. Fessenden went into the Treasury. He found the question res adjudi cata. The gentleman is all wrong in charging this upon Mr. Fessenden. To this unexpected stroke G«n. Bntler had nothing better to reply, than that “if so greet a wrong was res adjudicatei it was res very badly adjudicala, and should have been foith with set right.” The reporters write “laugh ter” at this point, but the laugh was evidently at and not with the General who had been tripped up so handsomely. Repudiation is the refusal on the part of a government to pay its debts. Ttic legal-tender act declares gteenbacks legal-tender for all payments except payments of interest on the public debt and of duties on imports. The Ar gus stupidly asked the other day whether the enactment of a law-which thus scrupulously provides for the payment of all national obli gations, dollar for dollar, in gold was not—of all things in the world—repudiation t Instead of referring our ingenious neighbor to the diction ary wc respectfully replied that so far as we had been able to ascertain, the enactment of tlie law was not repudiation, nor burglary, nor ar son, nor any malfeasance whatever. The Ar gus now explains that it intended to say that the law ‘ operated as practical repudiation ot all private debts to the interest of 30 per cent.” t\ e supposed by a natural error that when the Argus said 'repudiation” it meant-repudia tion, the 1 efusal of a government to pay its debts. It turns out that something quite dif erent was iutended-the interference of gov ernments with private contracts. Very well, we shall have something to 8ay about that after Thanksgiving. Don’t call it “repudia tion” again. I*»lificnl Note*. The Argns is publishing Mel. Weston’s ar gument in favor of paying off the national debt iu paper rags. It takes two days to print the argument The “money” could be printed in about the same time. Speaker Goltax is said to have stated that the reason why Mr, Hooper was not appointed to the chairmanship of the Ways and Means committee was because he was too strong an advocate of contraction and the resumption of specie payment. Mayor Norcrosa lias been renominated*in Boston, hut has not yet accepted the nomina tion. The Democratic and P. L, I,, candidate for Mayor is Dr. Nathaniel B. Shurtleff. Three candidates for mayor have been nom inated in New York. They are Win. A. Dari ing, Republican, John H. Anthon, Union Democrat, Fernando Wood, Mozart Democrat, and John F. Hoffman, Tammany Democrat' The twP former are good and true men. The two latter are the leaders of two the great “rings” which mandje the whole foreign and all the rum-selling and rum imbibing population of the city. Hoffman is more popular with the rumsollcrs, Wood with the drinkers. One of these is almost sure so be elected, though the division of the Democrats into three parties has inspired the Republicans with a laint hope of success. hr. Blame on ihe Ptnilleloa Mwindle. The following is a synopsis of Mr. Blaine’s s leech in the House of Representatives, Tues day afternoon; Mr. Blaine, in review of M. 'nS,!i,llllfr<i1")* 1‘emlletou's theory oilgiayinsgoft t1** jvo twftnty bonus wifhgreenlffle is,took the gtmtml that this mode ..f payment was in contraven tion of the honor and good faith of the nation, and that it was hostib> to the sp.nt and letter ol the law; that it contemptuously ignored ,,,,, , oiiimon understanding between liortotter ami lender at the time the loan was negotiat ed; that, finally, even it it was an honorable and practicable mode of payment, its effect would he utterly disastrous to the tinaiieial and business interests of the country. Mr. Blaine then proceeded to give a careful histo ry of the various loan hills umter which the 5 20 bonds had been sold, showing by the lan guage ot the law, by the circumstances sur rounding the various oiiaolments, and by the contemporaneous understanding in Congress at especially shown by Mr. Stevens as chair man of the Committee of Ways and Means, thm gold payment of the principle just '- much guaranteed as gold payment ot the interest. ... >r ... . in lurther proof of his. position, Mr. Blame cited the advertisement1,1 the five-twenty loan as authorized by Secretary f hase pledging the payment of the principal anil interest in coin. This pledge was given with the knowledge and rendered binding by the assent of Con e,vfis At this late day to attempt to Ignore the full force of that pledge would be simply placing the United States in the altitude of a man playing a “confidence game” of the mean est description, inSrhii h the Treasury Depart ment and Congress are the confederate knaves and the w hole mass of bondholders the untor tunate victims. In reply to the point made by Messrs. Pendleton and Butler, in regard to the principal of the lu-Jus being guaranteed in gold, and to the consequent implication that the fi-20s, by silence on that point, are paya ble in paper. Mr. Blaine states as a fact of conclusive import, that when the 10-40 hill was passed only twenty-five millions of the five twenties had been sold, and had the construc tion of Gen. Butler obtained then, not one dollar more could have been disposed of, for the people would net have bonght a paper loan when a gold loan was about to he placed ou the market and urged upon their accept ance. Mr. Blaine then proceeded to argue at some length the impossibility of paying the five-twenties without a reckless and bound less is3uc of paper money, which would in the end engulph us all in financial disasters, with wide spread and general distress to all classes of the community. Gen. Butler’s idea of pro curing the means by ottering for sale a new se ries ot currency bonds would bo found decep tive and delusive. The government would be in an exceedingly awkward attitude when it should re-enter the money market to negotiate a load such as Gen. Butler advocated, the avails of which wero to bedevoted to breaking faith witli those who already ln-ld the most sacred ohli gatlons. But tile most delusive part ot the whole scheme, is that which terms the exchanging of greenbacks loi bonds a payment at all. It is no payment in any proper seuse, It neither gives the creditor his honest due, nor does it release the debtor from subsequent responsi bility. You may get rid ot the 5-20sl)y issuing tho greenbacks, but how will you get rid of the greenbacks except by paying the gold? In conclusion, Mr. Blaine urged that the true financial policy of Congress was to move steadily, but not rashly, towards the resump tion of specie payments, aud at the same time to reduce our expenditures within the narrow est practicable limits. Oar whole annual out lay, including the interest on the public debt, ought not to exceed two hundred and tweuty five' millions, but to attain this we must rigidly aud severely economize. Our military peace establishment must bo cut down one-half at least, aud all the leaks and gaps and loose ends must be taken up and stopped. With such a policy steadily pursued, neither our debt nor our current expenditures will be bur densome to the people, and we can at once have a vast reduction ill our taxation. It will doubtless ciamji n.s a vast deal to pay our in debtedness, hut it will cost us ineaculably more not to pay it. 1’edestrianish is approaching its last stages. Mr. O. N. Wood proposes, through the columns ot' the Chicago Tribune, to crawl on his hands and knees fropi Chicago to Portland in two hundred days lor $30,000. Another man proposes to walk the same route on his baud* alone For half the money, and the edi tor of the Tribune says he is in daily expecta tion of a proposition to roll to Portland. The Boston Advertiser suggests as a worthy ob ject, that some athletic man try to hop on one foot from Calais, Maine, to San Francisco, California, within two years, never putting the other foot to the ground. Meanwhile the great question whether Weston did his hnn dred miles Mopday reuraius unsolved. Conore sbional Committees—The posi tions of the Maine Representatives on the House Committees are substantially unchang ed. Mr. Lynch continues to serve on the com mittees on banking and currency and on post offices and post roads; Mr. Perharn is retain ed as chairman of the committee on invalid pensions, where he has rendered excellent service; Mr. Blaine is,on the committee on ap propriations; Mr. Peters is assigned to the committees on publie expenditures and on patents; and Mr. Pike, retaining the chair manship of the uaval committee, will serve al so on the committee on expenses of the State Department. • Stole E:lurational Convention. Lewiston, Nov 27,18<i7. To the Editor of the Press : My report of yesterday brought the proceed ings of the Convention down to Tuesday noon. TUESDAY AFTERNOON. Committee on Constitutions and By-Laws reported. Final action on the report was postponed until after the addresses. ADDRESS OF ME. A P. STONE OF POltTLANO “How shall 1 successfully discharge my du ties?” is the question every teacher asks him self. Tn reply Mr. Stone said he would offer a few practical suggestion^. What constitutes success? Not’ glittering show.—not the simple fact that the teacher is popular with the pupils. There may he show Without substance; and it is not always meri torious work that gives the teacher popularity with his scholars. Nor is popularity without a sure criterion that the work is well done within the schoolroom. A succeslul school is one which is well governed and well taught. A school is well governed where obedieneq is secured by the evident consent ol the pupil and is not forced. Discipline and instruction depend mainly upon the teacher. As the teacher, so the school, whatever the books whatever the outside influence. Enthusiasm. This is one ol the essential el ements of a good teacher. All the real work ers of the World, whether reformers, whether devoted to science, literature, discovery or the flue arts, have been enthusiastic. A well tem pered zeal is, then, one of the chief requisites of a good teacher. An indolent teacher lias no right to complain of indolent pupils. A school-house should resemble the bcc-liive. The teacher who possesses a glowing enthusi asm will make it resemble a bee-hive—win have no occasion to complain of inactivity on the part of the scholars. Enthusiasm, howev er, must not be mistaken for bustle, for uproar* Boisterous teachers never succeed. Bnt a school may be too still for profit. Still ness is notan object but a means. A death like stillness cannot be profitable. About <lie bee-hive there is ever the steady bum of activ ity. So there must be about the scbool-romn, There must be moving ol books, slates, pen cils—coming in and going out, movements f, r various purposes. When there, is only tlie amount of necessary noise, the school is still It is pot a forpid silence. Independence. The teacher must be inde pendent. his methods must bo bis own, yet not necessarily different from tbo9e of every body else. He must bo master ot his methods, and that makes them his own. He is not their slave. The teacher must set his pupils to thinking for themselves— thus making them independent loo. Iu the rendering of assist anc c much .judicious care must he exercised. Hero much harm or much good may be done. Be watchful, ho judicious: make the scholar an independent thinker just as tar as possible. Tact. To become successful the teacher must possess tact. Tact will mauage pupils better than talent. Tact, while being as firm as talent, is more adroit. But all men have not tact, and all men cannot teach successful ly, no matter how much they may know. Sullen boys. Unless excessively bad, bad boys should not be expelled from school. Niue tenths of those expelled are reudered worse thereby. Tact will not treat all boys alike. It will not require too much work of sullen hoys who are usually dull. These boys should re ceive confidence. There should be little admo nition, little corporeal punishment. It is al mot useless to flog sullen hoys,—for, like ic iaij Taylor, they never know when they are conquered: Active, restless boys. Those hoys are apt at mischief, - it u impossible to keep them so qui et as other pupils. They cail dn a fireat dea, and tact will give them oecupation Thoy must not be " let alone " Tlu.y <;anuot ^ crushed. The law of their natuie is and upward. They must therefore he led—be allured onward. -For this work patience forbearance are required. Sympathy. This is an important element of success; it lies at the foundation of all good understanding between leather aud pupil. Goud understanding is an indispensable condi tion of good government—of success. The teacher, indeed must bn supreme in the school room; yet them must be a mutual recognition of rights. Young minds learn to read charac ter long before they leant the multiplication table- inwards pupils no jcsuitical attitude should be assumed. Misdemeanors should not bo allowed, itt order to see how* far the pupils will trespass and then to pouuec upon them suddenly. This is treachery and there should be none ol that. ou Ike guard against this • tall times. Threats should not precede mis doing. Ail, children hove V pretty clear idea of what is right and what is wrong in conduct. Do do not pre-aunounce that certain penalties will follow certain misdemeanors. Ovegoverning. Many schools .fail ofSsuc cess because of over management. They are governed too mueh. Pupils should, in a large degree.be left alone. Give them enough of hard work to do. Avoid scolding. As a rule, the school is mainly governed by the sponta neous influence of the teacher. It is bard to overestimate the power of his personal bear ing. He who lias the disposision of the porcu pine jinl frets nnd-fumes, is saro tost i. uji a storm. There should lie good fadc-lu dress, in tlic arrange incuts vt .the scliool-runm. In a word, teachers should be gentlemen and ladies. The very practical and pr oh table address of Mr. Stone was received with great satisfaction. The convention gave him a vote of thanks. After a recess of a few momenta, Mr. Ha gar, Principal of the fealem (Mass.) Normal School read a paper on MEMOKIZLK <1, 1. iuu jih iuui v, like every ia cully <>1 tlie mirnl, is improved by exercise; and in the direo tion in which it is exercised. If one memorizes words, lie will acquire a verbal memory; if one memorizes facts or principles, bis memory will grow more tenacious of facts or principles. 2. Tlie memory breaks down front over-exer tion. Many persons who possessed a retentive memory in childhood, have lost it in man hood, simply because it was overworked in early years. * 3. In order to memorize children must give close attention. Thi3 attention must he vol untary; to make it voluntary, curiosity must be aroused,and the work made a pleasure. 4. There must be association ot facts, of ideas, of whatever is to be committed. Tlie association must be natural, not forced. In the study of geography local associations arc very useful. In the study of history matters should be arranged by topics; there should he chro nological clusters of events. The association of philosophical principles is of vast impor tance in the cultivation of the memory. It lies at the foundation of all real culture. 5. What is commited to memory should ho worth the labor. There is an abundance of useful thiugs to be memorized; and the com mitting of them to memory certainly affords as much training as the committing of useless things. 6. The course of memorizing culture pursued in schools should he such as will be pursued in after Ufa. 7. Much of spelling is arbitrary. Only a few rules in orthography should he memorised Spelling must be mainly learned byrepetetion. 8. Of arithmetic the definition and afew siirp pie rules should be committed. This will give precision and persuicuity. It does not neces sarily involve working by rule. It is easier to remember a rule than a course of reasoning oftentimes. Whatever cultivates accuracy of thonght is useful. 9. The few leading rules of grammer not tha details, should be memorized. lO.The task of committing to memory tlie ordi nary geography is a severe one, and, In a great measure, useless. This study should be per sued topically in the main. II. History should he taught chiefly by topics Tberelshonld bo no memorising of the text hooka. If thore is, words ruth. , than facts will be learned. To learn history by rote is in the highest degree absurd. Mr. Hagar was vigorous in his denunciation of the omnivorous system of studying Latin which detours rules by the thousand, and is so abusive of the memory. How much better it would be to employ the time thus wasted in committing to memory things which are of general use in the different studies. Squan der no time upon minntias. Put the spare time for the exercise of the memory at work upon the great thoughts ot the great men of the world. Mr. Hagar s paper gave groat pleasure. Mr. Stone, ol' Portland, now spoke a word •in behalf of the “Maine Normal,” strongly urging the teachers both to subscribe and write for.lt. Mr. E. Leach ol Gorham, said be was not a teacher, but be took great interest in educa tion. He was a school-committee-man, and bad come to the convention to learn some thing about his duty. Though he iould not agree with all he had heard, yet, he had learn ed much that would help him in his labors. He submitted the following resolution which was adopted: Resolved. That a committee ol one front each county be raised by this association to secure the co-opera l ion of the entire newspaper press of the St to in developing a more general, ac tive and efficient interest in the subject of popular education, by the frequent discussion, through this medium, of proposed amendments in legislation or improvement in the execution ot such laws as we may have, and by the com munication in this way of practical sugges tions and information pertaining to the educa tional duties ot citizens, superintendents and teachers. The following committee was appointed by the chair: For Androscoggin, C. C. Rounds; Aroos took, Mr. Stickney, editor ol the Sunrise; Cumberland, A. p. Stone; Franklin, G. M. Ghge; Hancock, Mr. Fletcher; Kennebec, Mr. ■Waterhouse ; Knox, A Men Sprague; Lincoln, Mr. Thurlow; Oxford, Mr. Barrows; Penob scot, Mr. Littlefield; Piscataquis, Mr. Feroald ; Sagadahoc, Mr. Reed; Somerset, Mr. Hough ton; Waldo, Mr. Brackett; Washington, Mr. Pepper; York, Mr. Barrows.

The Presque Isle* Sunrise says: “It is re ported oh the street that the Pioneer is. to be removed to Houlton and made the organ of the Democrats of Aroostook,"they having tax ed themselves hoavily to secure a so deTirahle instrumentality in the work of revolutionizing tliis county, which is said authoritatively, must ha done next year. We understand that Bro. Gilman says the Republican party has gone Up, and Presque Isle is played out, and we suppose he goes to Houlton and into the embrace ol the Democrats on the principle that “rats” run from a sinking ship. The world, Aroostook, aud Presque Isle will prob ably survive the shock” One day last week Geo. W. BeJiuaiu, of ■ 1 Maysville, while engaged! chopping in the woods, received a blow from a falliug tree which resulted in fracturing both bones in the left leg below the knee, dislocatiug the uppeT fragments at the joint, and in a deeply punc tured flesh wound. The accident, though of so severe a nature, it is hoped, will admit of a jK-rtect recovery. PKNOBSCOT COUNTY. The Whig says the late warm turn will en able lumber dealers at that port to load mo st of the lumber upon their vessels. They are work ing day and night, and as matters look now, there is a fair probability of their being able to fill the greater portion of their contract :, and the loss by the cold will be much less than was anticipated. The boom above the docks was ent on Tuesday, and the legs drifted slug gishly down the river to be secured 1 by men stationed in the coves below. There are still lu.tny fears about the logs at Sunkhaze aud in Peuobscot Boom, whir IT are likely to come db-.vn il the warm weather continues. Mr. J. If. Jewett, President of tbe E. & N. A Railway Company, writes to the editor of the Bangor Whig that a contract has been made with responsible parties to complete tbe construction of that railway as far as Wrinn‘ 57 miles from Bangor, and near the mouth ol the Mattawaiukeag stream. Tbe Whig is con fident that after the road is thus completed to Winn, the construction of the other fifty mites to the east li ue of the State must roon follow, as the New Brunswick portion will he rapidly completed. * PISCATAQUIS COUNTY. The editor ol the ifarmer lia? paid a vijit to W isc’a Hill, in Guilford, anil is surprised at the wealth of granite and slate there stored up. Ho says: ‘‘Ascending the lull through the bushes, we soon passed over a bed of mica slate, curled and twisted up by the for irig up of the granite through it. As soon its we reached the summit we suddenly ^amc upon the granite, which like a hack-bone stretched across the country to the northwest. Our surprise was great to tlnd it here in a country where nothing but slate was supposed to ex *st. We believe our State geologists did not recognize ,t. Thus witliiu a third ot a mile we crossed distinct formations qf granite, inica, slate aud argillaceous slate. The granite is oi lii m texture, and could be split out in immense blocks for all kinds of purposes for which it is employed.’ WALDO OOT3WTV The Bangor (Whig has information of a se rious tire in Frankfort.

Hastings did not put in an appearance, tho officer not being able to fin/l^ him. Drummond, for State. Pittfiam lor defence. Enterprise.—Exchange street is fast being relieved from the effects of the great fire. To day its appearance presents a striking con trast x*»th that of Jhly 6,1806. The Thorny Estate has nearly completed a pretty brick block of two stores, erected on their lot just cellent. The exterior presents a plain and substantial appearance, not overloaded with cheap decorations, while the interior shows a well-calculated plan for the convenience of its tenants. 1$ is a bltifck of four Atorfes with French roof, and the two stores on the first floor are large, well lighted and convenient.— It is expected that the Merchants’ Exchange will occupy the ujjper one, which stands just where tlie one formerly occupied by them, stood. On the second floor there are two large all y room 4 fronting on’tLfc.' street, and back of them there are a number of rooms of no , small dimensions, conveniently arranged for offices, Si Vilrlttijti!) Li*',' »'•«!?' A block will be erected upon the large va cant lot above the Merchants’ National Bank, next year, and on the opposite side, the two lots on tl>e,corner of Milk and Exchange Sts., one owned by tire Thomas Estate, and the oth er by the Deerings, will probably be put to use next season. We are hoping, in one year from this time, to see a fine block erected on the lot when;, previous to the fire, the Fox Block stood. By that time the nete-Poit Cttar *<U be waking a grand show, and any Portlander will feel justly proud in passing along Ex change street and seeing the great improve ments that have been made in so short a time. Le,w*o»e at Sav, A*A»PA-^The test tec tare before tbe Saccarappa Lyceum was delivered by 11. F. Fuller, Esq., of Boston, a brother ot file late lamented Margaret Fuller Os9oli, wife of Marquis Ossoli. His subject was “Brother, •1 .martian and his PecntiarittuB,” and ilk was presented in verse. The title suggested the idea that the subject would be treated in a hu morous style; and perhaps a little refined hu mor would have been an improvement: but in stead of that it was a serious, solid, truthful delineation of the character of Brother Joija., than (is he f« and lifts been, with a vivid pic ture of what he is to become if gnided by the spirit of freedem and justice, rile unaffected sincerity and delightful simplicity, as well as the chaste and scholarly style of the leeture, won the hearts of the audience, and produced an impression as deep and permanent, doubt i Uss, as if it had been received with more out ward marks of approbation, i The next lecture will he by Rev. E. C. Bollcs of this city, on Friday evening. “Work and Play” is the subject. lUr.K Street CHURcH.-The work on the Kcgoart 0 nltaiSandiuroh I s m>r finished, it will be opened for religious services on Sun day next. The appearance of the exterior has been mnch improved by thorough painting, and the removal of the clumsy platform which formerly obstructed the entrance. The car penter work—pews, pulpit- and gailcry—was -CflEfttWaORBC Schumacher,which is all that need be said of the beauty and tithes].af that.. The large efcande lipr was furnished by Levi Browu, and the car pets and cushmus f*r<wpurfll»Mi$ of JVfrwrett & Poor. ' ™ Mri w4k is «pImC4i4s-I ini'—being a splendid finish of chestnut and .black walnut. The basement has been finfcdied off in a very comfortable manner, and in cludes a large lecture room, a library room and a kitchen. Altogether, this i3 one of the neat est and prettiest Houser of worship in the efty, and the restoiation is a pleasant evidence ot earnest work and sppi feqpjjig qu of the church and pastor. i rices Ihirty Years Ago.—One of our oldest business houses, in looking over their correspondence the other day, came across a letter from a Cincinnati correspondent, in 1830, containing the following quotations: y, Prime Pork, per ikl-fc,7rf(f ; Mess Pork, tt.00 to 97)0. : Clear Pork, 11.00.

The Poultry Yesterday.—The supply and display ot poultry in the market yesterday was very fair. There was a great falling off from the prices ol last year, |couutrymcn selling tnvkies from their wagons at twenty cents and retailers selling at twenty-five ceuts per pound. There were a few choice lota, one ot which—at Clienery & Tailor’s, on Congress street—wo noticed in particular as rather the best of any. The Snow-Flake.- This is the title of the little Christmas opera toon to be brought out at. the City Hall, by the S. P. Society of the Kew Jerusalem ('httr. li in this city. W. have seen tlie (ihrefto. which is very neatly .printed by Mr. Stephen Berry, ami we are pre pared to witness a very interesting and de lightful entertainment. The dialogue is live ly, the songs graceful, and the choruses spirit ed. The music is partly original, and partly adapted from various popular operas and pieces. This por tion of the work has been in competent hands, and we feel sure that the re sult will be found most satisfactory. The scenery prepared is beautiful and appropriate: and.we have uo doubt the representation of the pie ;e will not only sustain but enhance (he reputation which this society already enjoys for the getting Up of entertainments as thor oughly charming at any which arp given to our Citizens. The proceeds, after paying expenses, of tin* Sunday Evening Concert ami Readings, have been handed over to Mr. Tuekerman. An idea prevails that the Portland Band volun teered their services. This is a mistake, al though they would undoubtedly have been willing to have done so had they been con sulted in this regard. Mr. Chandler, leader did give his services for which he is entitled’ to the credit. T..event 6f the hall was also given by Mr. Thaxter, except, of course, the expense of lighting and warming. The enter tainment was highly satisfactory, and the au dience ot|the most select, cultivated ami atter. tive character. Mr. Haile’s readings are high ly spoken of by those present. Want ot space prevented our giving a more extendod notice on Monday morning. Tax on Mancjfaciuriss.—At a meeting of the petitioners for the repeal of tire Internal Revenue tax, and numerous others interested, holdeu last evening in the Library Room ot the M. C. M. Association, Charles Staples, Esq., was chosen Cbairmau, and Geo. L. Da mon, Esq., Se ’.rotary. Remarks were made by several gentlemen favoring the objects of the meeting, and a committee of three, consisting of Messrs. N. A. Foster., 0. -H. Breed and Charles Staples, was chosen to draft resolu tions to he submitted at an ad journed meet ing. It was then voted to adjourn to meet in the Common Council Room, old City Hall, at the call of the committee. The S'. P. SootRTTt! Emtbut unment.—Wo have seen the Libretto of the “Snow Flake,” to be produced nakt Week at OityHall, Mon day and. Tuesday evenings, by tho S. P. So ciety of the New Jerusalem Church, and are decidedly charmed with its talent and operat ic effect. With tho splendid scenic accompa niments, it cannot fail to be the finest atrair ever produced by home art and taste. We understand that even thus early the tickets are being rapidly taken up, and are sure that the entertainment will crowd the City Hall. The N. N. Promenade.—Those of our read ers who have ever attended the entertainments of the N. N.’s need not be reminded that their second promenade will occur to-morrow eve ning. The young ladies of the society will spare no effort to entertain their guests, and are determined that this shall be the most so cial and enjoyable hop of tho season. Re freShments will be served in the small hall by the hands of the young ladies, who will be happy to gnat aR their oW rastuitors and as many new ones as may see fit to honor them. Tifi employees of the Press office are ex tremely indifferent to the seasonable advice of the newspapers about selecting turkeys with smooth legs, soft bills, bright eyes, moist feet “and all that sort of thing, y.-n knew." 'The truth is, they have bad no occasion to select turkeys this year, Mr. Foster, with his usual forethought, having attended to .that matter for the whole company. So we begin Thanks giving with a general vote of thanks to the head oil the establishment.. A Good Time To-night.—To those who ask where they shall go for a good time to-night, we should say to the City Hall, where the Ar my and Navy Union ate to give a Grand Prom enade Concert. No pains will be spared to make this dance satisfact try to all who may choose to attend. The gentlemanly tloor-man agers will see that nit ijoin In’ keeping time with the music, so that strangers will not be neglected. We would call attention to the Festival ad vertised to be held at the West Congregational Chapel this evening. The entertainment promises to be one of special interest, while an abundance of things which are pleasant to the taste and good for food will be provided.— Those who wish to spend a pleasant Thanks giving evening, and at the same time aid in a good cause, will not do better than improve this opportunity. Extra Trip.—We feel snre that our mer chants and others interested here and along the route of the City of Richmond will be pleased to learn that the said steamer .will fnake all extra trip next week, as per adver tisement in another column. Ws stepped into J. B. Brown & Sou’s new counting rooms on Commercial street, yesten day, and were struck with theei^gapt mai|nejr in which they are fitted up. No convenience th*t by ||yip^ed has ^ocn ousted. Fine Arts.—We understand that Brown’s beautiful sketch of “Snirsct at Grind Men an,” which we mentioned some days since, has been Sold already. We hope the artist will paint a larger picture from this theme and exhibit it in New York or Philadelphia. Sare of Heal Estate.—The house and land and Morrill’s Gorncr, formerly owned by Lew is P. Brown, was purchased yesterday by John Bell of B»# Mills, through the agency of Geo. R. Davis & Co. E. W. Patten & Oo., yesterday ‘sold at auc tion, the house and land No. 98 Paris street, to Edward Brown tyr.twe»tj-tb»r/lnadred and seventy-five dollars.

Reverdy JonNROjr's VrRw? of Impeach ment.—There are almost an Infinite num ber of plirsca of opfuioa on ImfftacMtnent from Gen. Butler, who believes that a civil officer may be punished in that way for taking more glasses of brandy than he should to Reverdy Johnson who thinks that impeach ment can be resorted to only in cases of trea son and bribery. He says: | From the beginning of the government it has been uniformly decided by "the supreme aourt that there aie no common law (.flenses prohibited by the constitution, except such as are specially named. In the danse before us, the only offenses so designated are treason and bribery. For the nat ure of these offenses the courts have a right to refer to the common law lor their definition; but it is otherwise as to the general terms, high climes and misde meanors. These not being specified, and there being no common law jurisdiction in the courts of the Union, they cannot take cogni zance of them without statutory authoiity. If this was not so, the doctrine of theju ! diciary would be palpably wrong. But if there may under the clause be a crime and misdemeanor not made known by statute, it is certain that there must be some la , making it so. No act, therefore, wbicli the President may do is cause of impeachment, unless it be treason or bribery, or declared criminal by statute or the common law. Any other construction would place it iu t*e power of the House of Representatives to make any act of the president, though not prohibited by law and wholly iunucciil, a crime or misdemeanor, which would be to p|ace the president m absolute dependence upon Congress, contrary to the obvious design of the constitution. The result is that the president can only lie impeached for treason, or bribery, or tor some act made by statute a high crime and misdemeanor. Any alleged violations of a supposed duty not made a crime by statute, auy alleged violation of pai - tyiealty.auy use of his official patronage which politicians may find fault with, or which may have proved injurious to the pub lic interest, are not causes ot impeachment. —Josh Billings sny3: “Those who retire from the world on account of its 9in and pe.sk incsj, mint •»* h*Te. got£o„keep company with a person who wants as much watching as anybody else." The sable philoso pher adds: “Moat people decline to learn only by their own experience. And f gues’s they are more .than half right, foildonot spose a? man can got a correct idea of molasses candy by letting anuthcr feller taste for him.” —Dr. Wittstein lias recently found that Eu ropean wines may eontafh zinc in the form of salts, and that its presence is due to tho tact that the iainglass used in purifying tho wine was adulterated with about 21-2 per cent, ot the oxide of iync.

Whene’er I take my walks abroad how many poor, miserable dyspeptic people I see, who would be healthy, and rosy, and happy, if they took Plantation Bitters, that paragon of preparations for giving tone to the stomach, energy to the torpid liver, a jov to the nervous system, and strength to the muscles. It is an admirable regenerator of nature’s wasted or neglected (unctions) powers in either man ti woman. It generally excites and pleasantly soothes. With a bottle thereof, every man may he his own physician. Magnolia Water.—A delightful toilet arti cle-superior to cologne, and at half the price nov23eod2w&w2\v The Hanlon Combination.—This company performed again last evening before a large and appreciative amliehce. It Is not oftbfl that our citizens'are offered .in opportunity of witnessing such wondrous feats as those per formed by this troupe, who are unequalled by any other performers on this or the other side of the Atlantic. Among Other feats, which would seem incredible until witnessed, was one performed bf jGleorge, William and Alfred Hanlon, in which they appeared as the ‘ three flying men in the air.” In this daring feat the brothers acquitted themselves in the most sat islactory manner, and their every movement, as they actually flew through the air, was watched by the audieucc with almost breath less interest. The Hanlons give a matinee this afternoon, and a performance this eve ning. Our readers may rest assured that by taking our advice, and being present either in the afternoou or evening, or both, they will get their money’s worth, and something to spare. Nl'ECUL NOTliEfl.
