Tliis message is a imich more effective Radical document than any violent tirade cmid be. It bus an air of candor calculated to wiu a bearing and incline to a favorable con sideration of its reasoning.” No severer rebuke than this could possibly he administered to Gen. Sam. J Anderson, whose “violent tirade” against the city govern ment of Portland is reported in the same pa per. Gen. Anderson is represented as having addressed the Constitutional Union Club Fri- J day evening substantially as follows: In every department of the city government corruption festered. Favoritism, nepotism ami a want of discriminating ability had placed a horde of plunderers in power. The city was being contracted in its resources and misrep resented abroad. The business men were eve rywhere complaining and demanding a change. Conservatism could rule the city to its advan tage, and people were convinced of it. Con servatism must rule the eitv. Our welfare de pended upon it. The speaker did not indicate anything definite in regard to policy %but general ly suggested the propriety of a change. Nobody in his seiises believes this sweeping denunciation Jo be even mearureably true. Criticism of tne action of the city government in any particular is of course perfectly proper, and may be of public advantage; but the as sertion that,“corruptiou festers in every depart ment" is mere sound and fury, signifying noth in. This is the prauciug and neighing of “the old war horse” of polities, an animal with which both parties are tolerably familiar, and of which the people are getting thoroughly tired. Reverdy Johnson, of Maryland, it is said, will fail of a re-election to the Senate, because his vote for the reconstruction act last March was displeasing to the rebels of the Maryland legislature. If they were reason able, they would be appeased by the activity which Mr. Johnson displays iu concocting schemes for the defeat of the hill for which he voted. He was counsel for the parties who endeavored to get an injunction from the Su preme Court restraining the President and Secretary of War from executing the law, and he is now engaged in bringing cases before the same tribunal for the purposed securing a de cision adverse to the constitutionality of the Congressional policy. He has informed some of his Southern friends that he fully expected a decision from the Supreme Court within a short time, affirming that Virginia is a State, ami has net lost any of her sovereign powers. The President also expeels this, and the law yers interested iu I lie case say that if such a decision is rendered, lie will discontinue mili tary supervision ill that State, diieeting com manding officers not to interfere except at tho request of the civil authorities. Good News from Crete.—Official Cretan accounts of Dec. 2 report that a battle had been fought between the Christians and Turks on Nov. 25 and 2ti in tho village of Lake, in which the latter were defeated, and obliged to retire with severe loss. The position ot the Sultan's Grand Vizier in Candia, in the midst of the clamor of arms and the cry for “ Christ and liberty," becomes daily more critical. The Cretans caricature his efforts to solve the con test between the Cross and the Crescent by his convoking a packed assembly composed chiefly ot Turks a"d renegade Levantines. The war fever in the camp of the Christians has receiv ed a further impulse from the enthusiasm evinced by the Cretan refugees in Greece on the recent arrival of King George and Queen Olga in Athena. Gardiner Election.—The Aigus says the election of Mayor, last Monday, iii Gardiner, was “a triumph of the Liberate and Conecrva tivee." This extraordinary statement is literal ly true, as it appears by the following para graph from the Kennebec Reporter, that May or Gray was nominated and elected by both parties: The municipal election on Monday last for a new Mayor, to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Mr. Wilcox, passed off quietly enough, and the number of votes thrown was very small, as there was no opposition to Josh ua ti ray, Esq., who was nominated by both the Citizens' and Republican caucuses. The whole number of votes thrown was 1(14, all but one of which was for Mr. Gray. Our new mayor is one of our successlul lumber mer chants, anil will make a most efficient officer. He is deserving of the unanimity shown iu electing him. Mr. Dombey in New York.—It is said that it takes a very smart man to get into the holy of holies to which A. T. Stewart with draws himself. That merchant king— the millionaires are princes and Stewart has many millions in his coffins—has recently been cor nered by a newspaper correspondent, who met him face to face. This adventurous knight-errant of newspaperdom approached the great man with genuflections and obei sances of more than Oriental obsequiousness, and desired to know what General Grant had said in reply to Mr. Stewart’s note, detailing him to act as President of these United States on and after the 4th of Mareb, 18(19. Mark the imperial answer: “I am busy, and have not time to talk about it.” The young man still survives, but is but a wreck of bis former self *r Maryland Law.—Friday’s Tribune has the following dispatch from Frederick, Maryland: A colored man named Jones, convicted of rape upon a white woman ill this city, was yes terday, [Wednesday] sentenced to lie hung. In passing sentence the Judge said that recent legislation, referring to tho civil lights bill passed by Congress, rendered it necessary to execute the Stale laws with tlie utmost rigor. The crime was alleged to have been committed a few days previous to the late election, and it was almost universally believed at this time to have been a story concocted or the purpose of turning the scale in the county. The trial at tracted considerable attention, and public sen timent strongly incl nes to the negro’s inno cence. The court is composed of men who de liy humanity to (lie black mail, anil toe accus ed will doubtless be bung. Santa Anna, says that the Yucatan revo lution is no work ot liis, and that he is entire ly innocent of any attempt to revolutionize Mexico at present. He would, however, have no objection to go to Mexico and again as sume the re>ns ot llie Government, with a view to quieting the people and hanging the robbers. Santa Anna thinks that the Mexi cans will send for him ere long and urge him to be their President and ruler once more. Political lions. —Senator Wilson bad a two column article in last week’s Independent, in which he takes strong ground in favor ot Grant for the next President. He says that “if the Republicans inflexibly adhere to the poiicy of equal justice tp all,and national debt, taxation and expend itures, it will be in their power to give Grant three millions of votes—the votes of thirty, and possibly thirty-two States, and a House of Representatives with one hundred major ity.” The term of Geveinor Pierpont, of Virginia, expired on the 1st of January, and his suc cessor has neither been elected by the people, nor appointed h.v the military authorities. Virginia is accordingly without a Governor. Senator Morton of Indiana said, in his speech a lew days since: “When President ohnson issued his proclamation disfranchis ing those who had participated in the rebel lion, it included not less than fourteen classes, numbering between 250000 and 280000 men; hut the Congressional system of disfranchise ment will apply to only 45,000 and not to ex ceed 50,000 men.” The State Democratic C immlttee of Penn sylvania has issued a secret circular urging thorough organization for the spring elections, and the “use of the necessary means to carry every sure and doubtful district.” Hast fall this meant the liberal use of money. General Meade says that he can do nothing less than to carry out the reconstruction acts according io the intention of their framers. If ear.y every member of Congress who lias returned from bis holiday vacation represents the Republicans of his District as almost unanimously Grant men—platform or no plat form. At a meeting of Peter Dagger, John Green and other prominent Democrats, held on Sat u-day ill New York, eftbrts were initiated to induce Horatio Seymour to allow his name to go before the National Convention as a Presi dential candidate. It is thought that he will accede to their wishes. X ”” —«■■■■ I ■ i ■ * A Plea for '\Voiii;m ^iiflrngi*. Ilev. Dr. dtirrtes Freeman Clarke, in liis * lcr tion sermon before the Massachusetts Eer.is lature, Weduesday, spoke as follows: The period seems to have arrived tq eorsid er and decide the great question ol woman's right to a share in the government of the state in which she lives. Movements all over the world indicate that this is the next Tetonn be fore us. B is everywhere in the air. Public opinion is already far in advauce of legislation, In England a id iu Kausaa the tendency is toward this eud. But herein Massachusetts, whore woman has been educated by the side of man in all our schools, where, in education, we have constantly proceeded on the princi ple ol her equal capacity \ where in our church es, her influence is so fmriortant; where in our public schools, wc. have three female teachers to one male toucher; where women are already engaged in nearly everv profession and occupation which men practice; where women hold soinwh property, and art* notex eused 'rom taxation because they are women, nor from being punished lor crime because they are women; here, in Massachusetts, which has led the way to so pi any other re foims, seems to he the place to initia.e this. 1 do not wisli England or Kansas to take the lead of us in this movement. As a question of right all the argument is on one side. Ihe republican principle assumes as an axiom that every one shall take part in making the laws y^hoistobe governed by those laws—that there shall be no taxition w laout representa tion-that, the power to vote for representa tives is the best political education and the only adequate protection. For this reason we very properly give the right of voting to every foreigner landing on our shores, and he is hardly acclimated bet we he is a ctizen. When woman is not represented, she either takes no part in public affairs, and then we lose all the benefit of her intellect, heart and thought—or she takes part in them indirect ly and by hidden influence, aud so exercises power without proper respousi ility lor the use of it. God made woman to he the com panion and helpmate of man in all that lie does, aud wnerever he shuts her out ot that companionship he loses the heln God meant him to h ve The moment that we remove from the constitution tue word “male,” and the masculine prunouns corresponding there with, and invite women to take part in public affairs, we shall add to the state just so much more moral and intellectual power. It the intellect of woman differs from that of man by being piore quick and subtle, then she will help us to escape many of the stupid ities of our average legislation. If she has r. purer moral tone than that ol man, she will aid in purifying politics from some of its base ness and selfishness, and will impart to it a higher quality. It is said that her nature will become masculine by doing tbe work hitherto performed by men? But men do not grow ef iemioate by performing tbe work commonly done by women. To cook, to sew, to mend cloths, and to wash them, has ususually been women’s work. But the classes of men who have to do 1 his women’s work, namely: hunters, soldiers,sail ors and lumbermen, are not made very effemi nate in consequence. It is said that women do not w sU to vote or be voted for. Very well; then they will not do it and no harm will be done. The proposition is not to compel wo men to vote, but to allow them to vote. It is said they will be insulted if they go to the polls with all sorts of men. But they walk through NVashingtou street with all sorts of men-they travel alone in street cars and railroad trains with itM sorts of men—and he understands the American people very poorly who does not see that every man at the polls would constitute himself the protector ot every woman—and that the effect would be to elevate and purify the polls, not to degrade the women voting at them. It is said that something of the bloom and charm of the feminine nature would be brushed away by the coarse con tact of politics and of politicians.— But the t rue charm of woman’s nature is just in that which cauuot be brushed away—it is part ot herself, given her by God. When women are degraded it is not by going into low and degraded scenes to do her duty there, hut it is by being corrupted and made vicious. Not contact, but corruption, degrades woman. Not her honest work, no matter where it takes hex, but her idleness, vanity and love of show often degrade her when in places where out wardly all seems refine!, where the surface is all fair and polished. The nature ol woman, if it be made different from that of man, by God, as I believe it is. will remain different. Let ting her vote will not make a man ol lu*r, ex cept as manly strength is an add* d charm to feminine sweetness—just as feminine sweet ness gives an added charm to the streng'h of a man. A man who is modest, as well as brave, is more of a man than before; a woman who is brave as well as modest is more of a woman. It is said that if a woman votes, she must also be voted for; and then we may have the shocking Bight of a woman as legislator, judge, or governor of the State. Very possi bly, but not till we wish it; and when we wish it we shall no longer be shocked by it. For myself, 1 should like immediately to have women chosen as members of the school com mittee in every town in the State. I am satis fied that nothin" would help our schools more. Tt is always hard to find good men for that of fice. The best men are loo bu\v, and those not busy arc alwiys the best. But in every town there are at least half a dozen women, well educated, deeply interested in children and their education, with am le time to de vote to it, and much more capable of observ ing than men are, the tone and temper ol a teacher iu a school. I hope this very Legisla ture will enact a law distinctly authorizing towns to choose women on the school commit tee. They have been so chosen, I know, al ready iu some tow us, but its legality is doubt ful, and ought to be settled definitely. The Wrong .linn. Princes who arc executed always have their existeuce protracted for many years iu the j imaginatiou of their subjects or admirers. ‘•King Monmouth,” the illegitimate son of Charles,II who was put to death for rebell ing against his uncle, James II, was expected for many years to return to Eugland by hun dreds of the humble peasantry who iollowcd him to the fatal field of Sedgmoor. So wiili Maxmilian. Already an individual has been found to deny that he bit the dust at Quere taro. The New York correspondent of an English paper writes as follows: Admiral Tegetthoff, of the Austrian navy, is now en route for home, with what he believes to be the body of the unfortunate Maximil ian. My connection with the Mexican agents in this country forbids my entering into mi nutiae, but I can assert that the remains which will be liouored I y Austria are not those of the ill-fated scion ot the House of Hapsburg, but of Hamero, a noted bandit and guerilla, who in life was not unlike poor Maximilian. The latter is pining in an obscure dungeon in Queretaro. feu with felon’s food, and awaiting the arrival of welcome death. The mgbt be fore his supposed execution, Juarez, uncertain of his own success in seeking the presidency, and perhaps unwilling to imbrue his bands in royal blood, had the noble captive conveyed by stealth to a secret den, and substituted in his stead the ruffian Hamero, hoping, had he not succeeded in his political aspirations, to have made a fortune, by delivering him safely to Austria. Civilized Amusements. —Edgar A. Poc brought to life, in one of his j>rose essays, an Egyptian mummy, and made that antique gen tlemau completely nonplus a modern sav< ant by showing that his conte mporaries of the era oi the building of the pyramids were in possess ion of mechanical forces far more efficient than anything modern civilization can boast. We do not remember that the questions of ancient as compared with modern morals was raised between the disputants. It it had been, the Egyptian could have made a si l ong point of 'he modern way of deriving amusement from the execution of idiots and lunatics. The past year has been especially prolific in diversions of this kind. The ixeicises are diversified to suit the varying tastes ot the public or local prejudices. Iu some places tbe day of execu tion is made a sort of lie tival. At the <xecu tion of a negro murderer in Chattanooga, Tenn., on the 27th ult., over two thousand peo pie were present, Hilly one-tlnr.l ot whom were women ami girls. One country wagon contain ed thirteen gills none of whom were over fourteen years of age, bes;des three small hoys and a man driving. Horses enough to have, mounted a regiment of cavalry and wagons enongli to have formed a supply train for an army corps who had come a long distance had brought lunch baskets with them and were seated on the ground in various directions ap peasing their hungry appetites. For the bene fit ot those who had not been so provident ta bles were set by enterprising country people, at which it was possible to procure a great va riety ol eatables for a small amount of money. While awaiting the arrival ol the condemned the crowd amused itself fn many ways, wrest ling,jumping, &c. An Explanation.—din the addre«s to the People ot Maine, published by direction of the Shipbuilders and Shipowners’ Association, oc curs this sentence:—“The shipbuilding inter est, va-t as it is and ot such immense import ance in a national point of view, has not a single representative man in either House of Congress.” This would seem to be plain enough, hut a correspondent of the Bath Times interpreting it in a sense uncomplimen tary to the Maine delegation in Congress, has afforded the committee which prepared the Address an opportunity to pay the following ! deserved compliment to our Senators and Rep resentatives: The simple meaning of the sentence is that , no man win. c irries on die business of ship ! building and owning ships, or who is known distinctively as a shipbuilder or shipowner, is j a member of either House of Congress. Sure ly it never entered the mind of the committee 1 to disparage the noble men who now repre j sent Maine in both Houses, neither did they j lorget that Mr. Fessenden introduced a hill into the Senate the last session designed to remedy the evil, nor that Mr. Lynch has done similarly at this session. With pleasure they acknowledge the services of all who have ex erted themselves to place the matter on its true basis, both members from Maine and from other States as well. In the multiple ity of duties devolving on members of Congress and calling for their attention, itwas not presumed they would pay the same attention to a par ticular one as would a person who had Ins ma terial interests bound up in it. “Where the treasure is there will the heart be also.” While other interests have their strong representa tive men, it is not so with this great interest; and it is eoUTcpccted that members of Con gress generaliv will attend to all the details necessary to influence the minds of other members sc ni to insure the success of a meas ure, as will those who have in it a strong per sonal interest. All the operations of the As sociation rest on this idea. Seizirb of a Dry Goods Store.—The fol lowing from the Dostou Journal of Saturday gives an account ot the proceedings *">f parties who are well known in this city and in Dan ger: The fact of tlie recent Iailure of the dry goods firm of S. S. Drew & Co., after being in business some five months at the corner of Washington and Winter streets, was generally known to the mercantile community, and by arrangement with their creditors, as we arc informed, paying 60 per cent, "he firm con tinued in business without^ molestation until two or three days since, within which time something of a change appears to have taken place iu tbeir affairs under somewhat unusual, but, it is said, legal circumstances, The simple facts as we learn them are, that the firm leased the premises occupied liy them at a rent of Sit)lid per month and taxes the terms of the lease providing among other things that the firm should not assign their goods for the benefit of creditors, and in ea.se they did so assign, the lessor should have the right to en ter upon and take peaceable possession of the premises. The rent not being paid the first of this month, Mr. Dyer, Jr., counsel for the les sor, commenced suit, and put a keeper in the store, whereupon the firm represented that the goods Ivlonged to Messrs. Jordan & Marsh, or their ageut, Mr. Long. This representation failed to satisfy Mr. Dyer, and under the pro visions of law, as ho claims, he visited the premises about six o'clock this morning, and forcing an entrance into the store, took “peace able possession” according to the terms of tlie lease, and placed a squad oi fifteen men inside to retain possession of the premises, aud extra oolice officers outside to preserve the peace. The affair caused some unusual excitement in tlie immediate vicinity this forenoon, and time alone will develope tlie result. Messrs. Bruoks & Ball ar" counsel for the firm. We are in formed that in a similar case some y“ars since, wherein the Fifty Associates were plaintiffs, they gained the case. Maine’s War Claims.—I am prepared to write with more clearness and with greater ac curacy respecting the amount of money ad vanced by Maine for the United States to aid in raising, arming aDd equipping volunteers during the rebellion. The total amount is $1, .iOl,571.78. Amount allowed on this claim “y United States: 1861, September.$200,010 00 1862, May. 120,000 00 1867, March... 550,101*22 1807, November. 10,682 23 $886,846 45 Leaving suspended and disallowed $414, 745.33. This amount includes $200,000 paid for bounties, about $10,000 for expenses of the ex tra session of the Legislature, and about $80, 000 for sanitary stores and pay of men enlisted but not mustered, leaviug about $125,000, which will he allowed as soou as the necessary expla nations can lie obtained. Tlie $200,000 cannot lie allowed until new legislation is produced from Congress. Of the amount obtained in March $357,802.10 was used in canceling the direct tax In 1801, which was $420,826, the gov ernment allowing 15 per cent, discount because the State assumed Us collection, aud the bal ance, $198,462.12, together with all the other payments, was applied to the sinking fund of tlie State. On the 30iii of August, 1866, Jos. II. Manley, Esq., of Augusta, was appointed Commissioner to settle these claims, who acted until Jan. 8,1867, when ex-Gov. Cony was ap pointed, who retained Mr. Mauley as clerk, and lhe large collection in March was the re sult of their joint effort.—August a Correspon dence of the lioston Journal. Standing Armies of Europe.-Every European country is arming. Italy is organ izing her forces on the footing of 1,041,600 men, of whom 120,000 will constitute the Na tional Guard. Prussia, with the Confederate States of the North, has an army of 900,0(10 meu at her command, which with the contin gents from the Confederate Slates of the South, will amount to 1,250,000 men. The Russian army, ou a peace tooting, amounts to 735,000 men; hut, with the resulting resources at her command, she can bring into the field 1 300,000 soldiers. —A chaplain in Arkausas says that a man buying furs was conversing with a woman, at whose house he call"d, and asked her if there were any Presbyterians around there. She hesitated for a moment, and said she guessed not—“her husband hadn’t killed any since they’d lived there.” State News. ANDROSCOGGIN COUNTY. Friday night some burglars entered the room oI Mr. William Bre\vster of ihe firm of J.Diugley, Jr., aud Co., at Auburn. A M. lloak, a clerk in the employ oi the firm, occu pied the same room wit n Mr. Brewster. The burglars took the clothes of both Pom a chair standing within three feet of the bed and ransacked them, purloining two watches, two wallets and the keys to the store, and decamp ed. They then proceeded to the store and with tlie key already iu their possession, un locked it and ransacked the money drawers, which were secured with the patent alarm couihiuatiou, hut the eutcring of which they appeared well to ui derstahd. They found for their pains $25 or $30 in scrip. Their entire night’s work netted them about $50 In money and two silver watches, says the Journal. The Lewiston Journal says about 250 inten tions of marriage were entered in the Clerk’s Office in that city the last year. Iu 1866 there were 216 similar documents filed. We learn from the Journal that quite a live ly time was had last Thursday in that city, when the city marshal made a raid on the premises of Mrs. McMullen, tor liquors. Mrs. McM. was engaged in emptying a barrel of ale into the wash tub and she defended her “fluids” with her nails, and was quite furious. Finally she was compelled to submit to the officer,'though protesting against their carry ing oil' her wash tub, KENNEBEe COUNTY. The International Telegraph Company, have commenced the putting up of a second wire from Augusta to Portland. Offices have been opened at the State House aud at the Augusta House, in Augusta. The Waterville Mail says the report that Mr. Lang’s horse, “General Knox,” is to go out West the coming season are without founda tion. Mr. Lang’s noted Dutch hull is to go out of the Stale, to Mr. Monroe, of Belmont, Mass. The Gardiner Reporter says that some six or eight State Constables paid that city a New Year’s visit. They first visited the store of P. Maiier, where quite a live'v scene ensued.— For some cause Mr. Maher was seized, chok ed and liaud-cuffi d, hut while this proceeding was going on, several citizens hearing an out cry rushed to the rescue, aud on arriving at the scene mistook these officials lor a party of cliapb' on a t'me who had created a disturb ance iu Mr. Maher’s store, and handled them rather roughly for a few minutes. They final ly explained the nature of their errand and were released from the clutches of a few who were showing very little respect to officers of the law. ■ PENOBSCOT COUNTY. The Baugor Whig notices a snow-plow for clearing sidewalks, a new invention of Street Commissioner Stewart, of that city. Like all other snow plows it is built iu the shape of a capital A, an l differs from those formerly in use in several important particulars. The front is fastened together with hinges, and tlie two sides are kept .apart by plank stays, fas tened to the machine and lapped together in tlie centre. These platikS are fastened togeth er by screws, aud the machine cau be made narrow or wide at pleasure by simply chang ing the screws and sliding tlie stays. It is very convenient where the walks are of such different widths. Ice packing is carried ou at Baugor with unusual vigor this season. RAGADAHOC COUNTY. We learn from the Bath Times that an ac tion was tried in the Supreme Judicial Court iu that city last week against Gilbert Harmon, a school teacher, whereby John Bryant sought to recover of said Harmon the mm of $2000 for' sound flagellation of said Bryant’s son, who was a pupil in Harmon’s school. The trial occupied three days and the jury could not agree upon a verdict. SOMERSET COUNTY. The furniture shoo, lumber and tools, be longing to Ezeltiel Rackliff, in Starks, was burned to the ground on Wednesday last. Loss about $1,009. No insurance. The Skowhegan Clarion says Mr. Ezra Mc Iutire, of Norridgcwock, fell down cellar, on Saturday, Dec. 27th, and was taken up insen sible, amt has remained so ever since. It is thought he cannot recover. We learn from the Clarion that Mrs. Hall, of Palmyra, a lady who had been siek for sonm time, while in a state of mental derangement, during the late cold spell of weather, left her bed, during the temporary absence of her nurse, with nothing on but her night clothes, and was soon a ter diseoveied under a tree a short distance from the house, frozen to death. The Clarion records an accident to Mrs.Fel lows, wife of Mr. .Tames Fellows, of Skowbe e n, who fell on the ice at the door of her res ideneafew days si me, sew re y injuring the spinal column; also to Maxy Jewett, Jr., ot that place, who fell and broke bis leg between the ankle and knee joint, a few days since; al so Mrs. HalVsvidow of the late Gilman Hall, of Athens, was struck in the back hy the shaft of a sleigh, a few days since, and severely in jured. Samuel Judkins, Esq., well known as one of the most active business men at Kendall’s Mills, a few years ago, was taken to the Insane Hospital*last week. It is thought that he will not survive long. WALDO COUNTY. We learn from the Age that a house situated in Northnort, owned by Joseph Dennett, of Belfast, and formerly owned and occupied hy John Stephenson, was destroyed by fire last Tuesday night. Valued at about $900; insur ed for $100. It was probably the work of au incendiary, as there had been no family living in the house for some time. The Belfast Age say s during a period of sev enteen days previous to Christmas, some $700 worth of liquors was disposed of, at the agency in that eilv, allot wh eh could hardly have been for medicinal and mechanical purposes. WASHINGTON COUNTY. The Machias Republican learns that the house and barn of Timothy Drisko of Indian River was destroyed by fire Saturday night, D o. 28. The Republican says Mr. Otis Getchell of Whitney villa, lost a valuable new milch row last week by slipping on the ice and breaking her leg. YORK COLTNTY.

Saturday.—The case of Dennis McCann, lorjas b ml and battery with intent to kill, was continued ono week. This is the case where Capt. llenlcy, of Cape KMzibeth, was stabbed at the head of Preble street. The Price Current.—In tlie Price Cur rent ior last week, M. N. Bich, Esq., the edi tor, presents his annual statement of the trade and commerce of Portland. It is a very inter esting document, got up with great care and is valuable for the statistics it contains. According to Mr. Bich’s figures, tlia valua tion of our city in April, 18(37, was but $1,507, 055 loss than the year previous, the diminu tion in the real estate valuation being only $348,200, and tills after the great fire of 1866. The aggregate debt of the city in April last, over the resources, was $1,067,817, towards the liquidation of which we have a sinking lund ,of about $151,000. The whole amount of taxation for the year was $685,061.12 on a valuation of $28,313,845. The total amount of internal revenue assessed in the city for the first eleven months of tho year was $243,850.21. The records of the in ternal revenue office show that there are 521 retail dealers, 194 wholesale dealers and 238 manufacturers. The largest amount of sales reported for the year ending May, 1867, by any single individual or firm in each of the lead ing branches of trade, is as follows: Dry Goods.81 570,ono Groceries. 081.0- (I West India Goods. GIG 00(1 Drugs, &c. Soo’ooo Boots . nd Shoes.. 394,000 Hardware....'. 410,000 Ship * hand cry. 155,000 Bomber.:—;. 23s!oti0 Bon. 152,000 r isIi ami Salt. 340,000 Fancy Goods. 128,000 Crockery iVare. I2G.000 Furs, Hats, .Vc. 140.000 Wool and Skins. 100,000 Pains and Oils. 150,000 Paper Stock and Old Mcda s. 104,000 The extent of the wholesale trade ot this city is shown by the following classifications of the returns of the gross amount of sales: Dry Goods...$3,870,000 Groceries. 6,«JG,OOo Molasses, Sugar. &c. 1 492,00(1 Corn and Flour. 3,765,000 Drugs, Paints,&c. 606,000 Boots aud Shoes. 1,289,000 Hardware. 620,000 Iron. 343,000 Fish, Salt, »Vc. 607,000 Faucy Goods. 318,000 The value of merchandise entered at the custom house for the year was $16,357,980, be ing an excess over the previous year of $1, 850.632, or nearly 13 per cent.; the duties as sessed $7,955,051.68, an increase of nearly 41-2 per cent., but the collection of duties has fallen off nearly 20 per cent. The value for the for eign exports lor the year was $6,764,011.35, an amount which has been exceeded only by the year 18(35, when it was about one and a quarter million more. The total tonnage owned in the port is 47,502; In the whole district 79,521; the new tonnage built during the year 9,175, or a little more than one half the amount of the previous year. The boot and shoe trade is represented by eleven firms against nine last year, doing an aggregate of over three millions. The box shook trade has been in a great measure trans ferred to the British Provinces, as in the pre vious year, while the shipments were only 604,567, or about 75 per cent, of the business of 18G5. Tho fonperage trade has also fallen oil' slightly. The fish trade, an important item in the business of Portland has been generally good, though tho dealers have felt most sensi bly the abrogation of the Canadian reciprocity, . which has affected them to the amount of at ! least $100,000. The flour trade stands relative- ■ ly about as last .tear, but it has been concen trated iu fewer hands, and the same may bo said of grain. The figures of the timber trade show greater shipments than the previous year. The de mand lor home consumption has been large with a coustant supply excepiug of choice kinds, and the sales were larger than the year jirevious. The terminat on of the reciprocity treaty is also felt seriously in this department of trade. Over 4,800.000 galls, of molasses were imported last year, which is 1,671,581 galls, less than in 1866, and about the same amount that was imported in 1865. Other branches of trade are fully reported in the statement, hut we have room only for the above synopsis. Conviction or a Burglar.—By reference to our Court reports it will be seen that John White, the burglar, has teeu convicted upon two of tbo indictments that were found against him—one for breaking and entering the dwelling house of John Band, Esq., in this city, and the other for breaking and entering the dwelling house of Mr. W. L. Wilson, in Westbrook, both in the night time. There are eight other indictments against him for burg laries in the houses of J. M. Kimball, J. B. Knigbi, George Gwynn and William Allen, in this city, W. W. Brown of Westbrook, and others. An inJictmeut against him will also be found in Androscoggin Countv lor larceny of the jewelry of Miss Lockwood of Charles town, Mass., at Lewiston, while she was visit ing that city last July, and another in Penob scot County for larceny committed in Bangor. It is not probable ho will be tried on any of the other indictments at present, as his con viction upon the two will ensure him a long, if not a life sentence, as in the Wilson burg lary he was a'med with a pistol. White is a native of St. John, but it is said was brought up to the burglary business in New York. He came to this city about a year age and established himself in the business ol painting, glazing and paper hanging, which gave him access to dwellings, where he could plan out his schemes of robbery ! His wife, who is a pretty and interesting young woman, was in Court during his trial, and seemed to feel keenly the disgrace he had brought upon himself. The testimony in the two cases tried was very direct, White having confessed to the City Marshal, after his arrest, the numerous robberies, and assisted the officer in recover ing a large portion of the property stolen. Ocean Steamers.—Steamship Hibernian, Capt. Brown, sailed from this port for Liver pool at 2 o’clock Sunday morning, with 25 cab in aud 'Ai steerage passengers and a full cargo. Steamship Nova Scotian, Capt. Aird, will sail from this port for Liverpool on Saturday | next. She will touch at St. Johns, Newfound land. The steamer due at this port this week,from Liverpool, is the Moravian, Capt. Wylie. Isiinc I.. CLirfiner. Mb. Editob:—Jlr. Gardner, second officer of tin steamer Carlotta, whose loss you chron icle, was ar man who deserves more than a passing mention. lie was a lifftive of Bath, and was not quite thirty-two years of age St his decease. -It eleven years of age he left homo for the mer chant service, and spent most of his subse quent life at sea, visiting nearly every part of the habitable globe. At the breaking out of the rebellion he enlisted in the navy. He had charge of a heavy gitn under Farragut at the ruuning of the forts and the capture of New Orleans. At the close ot two years’ service in the navy he returned to Portland; and when rebel pirates stole the revenue cutter from our harbor, he donned his naval uniform, rushed ou hoard the Chesapeake, and iu the pursuit took charge of a gun, which he actu ally embraced in his great enthusiasm at the telling shots she made. He was a man not to remain idle when his country needed his services. Having fought the rebels by sea, he next determined upon a “land cruise,” as he called it, and accordingly enlisted in the 5th N. H. lleg’t as a private. A stranger among strangers, his ]>ersonal bravery soon won him promotion to a first lieutenancy! which rank he held until after the close of the war. lie was desperately wounded through the breast before Petersburg, but recovered in time to he “in at the death.” Three days be fore the surrender of Lee, he was deployed in charge of a company of skirmishers, and with his whole command was captured by a rebel brigade. He was robbed ot his uniform, side arms and valuables, and during three days of that memorable retreat and pursuit, he was compelled to march with scarce a halt, or a morsel ot food. His narrative of the events of the retreat, the sufferings of the prisoners, and the final rescue, was truly thrilling. To the geDerous, impetuous and warm hearted nature of the true sailor, he joined the honesty and faithfulness of the true man. He leaves a large circle of friends to sympathize with his bereaved family. H. First Parish.—The attendance at the First Pari-h Church is regularly increasing since the installation of Eev. Mr. Bailey. The gen eral expression in relation to his labors is that ol satisfaction, a few, perhaps, who regard spread-eagle eloquence of the first importance in a minister, differing from the majority in their estimate of his qualifications. His ser mon yesterday was based on the parable of the mustard seed, showing the noble results of small beginnings if right direction is given them—that a work well begun is half done — that a kind word or act of little importance in itself has resulted in the salvation of hun dreds. cheering the desponding aud awaken ing high and noble purposes. Spoke of the importance of a right beginning of (he new year in order to make it a happy and useful one; that with children, when the right direc tion is given and the forces applied, there is hut little to fear for their future life,—as the twig is bent the tree is inclined. The new choir was duly installed, consisting of Messrs. Shaw and Thurston and Mrs. Werherbee (Miss Cainuiett) and Mrs. Norcrqss with Kotzschmar, as heretofore, the leader. Each have long been kno>vn in this commu nity as first class performers, and together con; titute a choir that will always he listened to witli the greatest pleasure. But one thing seems now to he necessary to secure a large and regular attendance at this church, and that is an opportunity to obtain sittings without intruding upon those who now own pews. Many of (he pews are owned by those who are abundantly able to pay the taxes, who do not wish to let any portion of them, although they only occasionally attend church. No one can question their right to do as they please with their own, although it would be very much better if the seats could be occupied by those who are desirous of at tending church regularly. Overseers of toe Poor.—At the month ly meeting of the Overseers of the Poor, held last Friday evening. Messrs. True and Trow bridge, the committee for the month of De cember, made a report of their doings for the month. The following are extracts: The committee have visited and investigat ed the cases of eighty-five families who ap plied for aid; aud in most cases assisted them with supplies from the Alms House. Two feet of wood and provisious were sent to fifty-two families; wood only, to eighteen families; provisions only, to five families; mak ing a total of seventy-five families aided a tan expense of $352.50; and permits have been given for twenty persons to go to the Aims House; and they have sent to the Alms House ten porsons on warrants. They have sent the City Physician to five sick persons. All the above cases were for eigners except six. The calls on the Overseers are much more numerous than last year, in consequence of their not having help from the Relief Commit tee. Many that received help from tbe Relief Committee think they are entitled to it for ever. Very many of the callers had work through the summer but spent their mouey lor poor rum and tobacco. Many strangers having worked here through the summer, have spent all, and now want to be sent to their homes in Canada and the Provinces, which we do when it is cheaper than to board them through the winter. Concert.—The concert to be given at City Hall next Thursday evening, under the au spices of the Portland Army and Navy Union, will bo a first class one in all respects. It will be uDder the direction of Mr. H. C. Bamaboe, who has inaugurated a successful series oi con certs in Boston and other cities. The leading feature in the concert, and one that is well worth tbe price of a ticket, is the appearance of the celebrated Camilla Urso, with her violin. This, of itself, would attract a full house. But, iu addition, we are to have Miss Houston, Mrs. Hall, Mr. Macdonald aud Mr. Barnabee as vocalists, Mr. H M. Dow at the piano, aud our own Kotzschmar on the organ. Of course such great attractions will ensure an immense audience, and we advise all who intend going to secure tickets in season. The second meeting of-the Portland Sun day School Union was held at X'ark Street Church last evening. The'church was filled to overflowing and many were not able to gain admittance. Interesting and stirring remarks were made by Rev. Mr. Hewes, Rev. Mr. Bai ley, C. Forbes. Jr., Rev. Mr. Bolles, Eev. Mr. Kent and others. This organization has for its object the awakening of a deeper interest in tbe Christian education of the young in the liberal churches. All were iuvited to partici pate ill the exercises of the meeting. Those who attended tins meeting in Park Street Church for the first time since it has undergone thorough repairs, could not fail to admire its excellent arrangement and beauti ful finish. Episcopal Services.—Episcopal services down town were initiated Sunday afternoon iu the Reception Room, City Hall, which was crowded with people. Bishop Neeley offic iated. As soon as the necessary arrangements can be made, the services w ill ho held in the Allen Mission Chapel. St. Luke’s Society occupied Sunday morn ing the Chapel of State Street Church, which was tendered to their use some time since, and will hold their morning service in that place until the Cathedral is ready to be occupied. Rev. Mr. Dalton, Rector of St. Stephen’s Church, preached in Central Church last eve ning to a very large audience. Street Letter Boxes.—We are requested to state that the I’ost Office carriers have no knowledge of any one of the street letter boxes having been broken open. Some of tho boxes have recently been changed for larger ones, and the one that was discovered witli the lid oif was one of tho small ones that was to be changed. The lid was removed so that no letters should be deposited in the box before it could be taken back to the I’ost Office. No instance has yet occurred oi one of these boxes beiug broken open. A New Idea.—A son of one of Portland’s citizens, who lives not far distant from the city, held tho following conversation with the family man servant the other day: Boy.—“Pat! what was your name before you were married?” Pat (who hasn’t been over but a short time)— “Ocii! my darliut, and is it a fact that they both change their name in this country?” The receipt of ten dollars “for the Bethfl Church by a friend” is hereby acknowledged with many thanks. The receipt is more wel come on account oi the peculiar need of funds at the present lime. Tho Bethel never stood in greater need of kind friends with generous hands than now. F. SOUTHWORTH. Portland, Jan. 3,1808. Police Items.—Three persons were taken to the lockup Saturday night for drunkenness, and three were admitted for lodgings. On Sunday a lad was taken in tor making a noise and playing iu the streets. Senator Morrill passed though this oily Saturday, on his way to Washington. The officers of Saccarappa Lodge, No. 11,1 O. O. K., w ere publicly installed on Friday (fretting by Grand Warden 11.izeltine, assisted by several Grand officers from this city. The hall was well filled by ladies a ul gentlemen, and after the installation services, which wore very impressively rendered, the company pro ceeded to the banqueting room of the Lodge, where they were sumptuously entertained.— After this material feast, they returned to the hall to partake of a “feast of reason and flow of soul.” Short addresses were delivered by Messrs. Hazeltme, Ladd, Cummings, Goodell (City Engineer), Whitten, Blake. Dennett, and Kingsbury of this city, and Rev. Mr. Pot tle, Chaplain of the Lodge. This Lodge has an elegant new hall, and a convenient room connected with it for social purposes. The members consist of some of the best and most i substantial citizens in Saccarappa, and the Lodge is rapidly growing in numbers and frien s, and is in a most encouragingly pros perous condition. We understand that some of the members have petitioned for and re ceived a warrant far an Encampment, (which . is a higher branch of the order), to be located j in Saccarappa, and that it will be Instituted at an early day. M. L. A. Debate.—In consequence of the storm Saturdav evening there was a small at tendance of the members' of the Mercantile Library Association at the meeting, and the debate was postponed. Next Saturday eve ning Henry John Murray, Esq., the British Consul, will give readings from Dickens.
