Our respected fellow citizen, James B. Ca hoou, after a protracted and painful sickness, was relieved of lii* heavy burdens by death, yesterday morning. Thus lias departed, in the lifith year ot hi* age, a man, who for more than fifty years that he has resided among us, Las filled all the relations of life in which lie has moved, with exemplary fidelity and honor. As a husband aud lather, as a merchant, as treas urer of the State, as Mayor of the city, and as a Christian gentleman, lie lias lived without reproach, ilis whole life has been character ized by activity, intelligence and moral worth. Mr. Gaboon was born in Sutton, Vermont, February 15,1802. In January, 1815, not yet thirteen years old. he came to Portland and entered as a clerk the store of B.C. Atwood, who then kopt in Hay market row. Mr. At weod married his sister. He afterwards became a partner of Mr. Atwood, a id their auction aud commission business was conducted in Exchange Street. He subsequently formed a connection w:tli the late Nehemiah Cram,and the firm of Cram & Gaboon will be remem bered by our elderly people more than thirty years agu as among the earliest and largest dealers and commission merchants in flour aud grain. After the dissolution of that linn, Mr. Ga boon continued in business alone for some years, when he formed a partnership with Capt. George Turner, who was a large ship owner, and extensively engaged in mercantile and other pursuits. He ueoded just such a man as Mr. Cahoou to arrange and keep in order his numerous and miscellaneous trans actions. Mr. Cahoon was an accurate ac countant and a practical merchant, while Capt. Turner, brought up to a sea life, was bcttcT.qualifled for executive duty than for the details of the counting room. This connection was unfortunately dissolved by the death of Capt. Turner, in 1851, and the settlement of the large concerns of the firm devolved upon the surviving partner. From that period Mr. Calioon’s employments have been varied but always active. For some years past be has been an agent in the very large concerns of Mr. J. H. Brown. He out lived all his partners in trade, and most of the porsous who were the early contemporaries of his business life. In 1838, at the early age of 35, Mr. Gaboon's financial ability and his integrity had become so favorably known, as to cause him to he elected treasurer of tho State in the first ad ministration of Gov. Kent; but by a change of political parties the next year, the office which he had faithfully administered, was transfer red to unothcr. In 184!) lie was chosen Mayor of this city, as successor to Kliphalot Greeley, and was re elected the next year; we can offer no better proof of the acceptable manner in which he discharged the duliee of this responsible office, than the fact that after an interval of two years, when from ail extraordinary excitement on the temperance question, this station was successively occupied by Neal How and Gov. Harris, he was again choBen for the years 1853 and 1854. in every sphere, whether public or private, in which it was his fortune to move, he was found competent to its duties, and no shadow of reproach was ever cast upon his ability or his integrity. In private life lie was uniform ly kind, courteous aud genial, and of simple, unaffeoted manners. He has been one of the managers of the Portland Benevolent Society over twenty seven years, part of the time its Secretary, and at the lime of his death Vice President; in his attendance upon its meetings he has in been constant, and the adminis tration or its charities, judicious and faithful. ‘‘He walked with man from day today As with a brother and a friend.” The death of such a man, and of the good Mr. Tuclterman, in the same week, is a loss to be seriously felt in the paths of their useiul and familiar duty. Mr. Cahoon was brought up in the Meth odist Communion, but afterwards connected himself with the High Street Church. In 1823 ho married Martha, the youngest daugh ter of Samuel Homer who was one of the founders of the -Methodist Society in this town, and one of its first trustees, and was for many years town clerk under the old munici pality. She, with a sou and daughter survive to mourn their great and heavy bereavement. _ W. Portland nud the I.nkew—the Ogdenrhnrg Kailrond* We make the following extract front an “Es say on the Commerce and Transportation of the Valleys of the Great Lakes and Rivers of the North West, by Alvin Bronson, Esq.,’’ re cently published by direction of the Oswego Board of Trade: The Mississippi and St. Lawrence oiler the cheap routes to this trade; the former conducts to a low latitude, unfriendly to northern pro ducts; the latter to a high latitude unfavora ble to early and late navigation. New York, Boston and Portland are competitors for the residue and doubtless the major part of this trade. The natural advantages of these three points are so equally balanced that the share of each will depend on the facilities provided by each in railroads, harbors and warehouses, as well as in the enterprise, liberality and fair dealings of llieir merchants. New York and Portland each possess unrivalled harbors; are each, or soon will he, connected with the lakes with railroads of about equal length, or about 450 miles each. [Mr. Bronson must have refer ence to the distance from Portland to Oswego, as the distance from Portland to Ogdcnsburg via the Notch will lie less than 340 miles]. New York haj her Eric of 433, and the Cen tral & Hudson River of 440 miles; while Port land has the Collingwood, between Lakes Hu ron and Ontario, of 81. and the Ogdenslmre & Lake Champlain of 117 miles, with still a link to be added to the Vermont Central to complete the chain. When this chain is conflict ed Portland will be nearer to Chicago by 200 miles, and to Liverpool by 300 miles, than New York. Here is a competition which will put New York upon her metal, and admonish her to look to her laurels. Political Notes. President Johnson, it is said, will not veto the anti-contraction bill, but will allow it to become a law by withholding it beyond the constitutional limitation ot ten days. Among all his exploits in vetoing, it is quite remark able that he should decline this admirable chance. The New Vork Tribune well says of Doolit tle’s proposition to make one of three qualifi cations accessary for the negro before exercis ing the right of suffrage that it is as appropri ate to the present time as a proposition from Pharaoh to release tho Hebrews after the He brews had got safely across, and the Egypt ians were drowning. Mr. Thornton, the new English Minister, ar rived in New York on Monday. On Thursday and Friday of this week, the Universal Peace Society is to hold its annual convention in Washington, and very properly in Harmonial hall. The circular calling the convention is a peculiarly worked document signed by Mr. A. H. Love as president, who declares “we are tired and siek of Glory to Military Glory in the highest, on Earth War and Destruction unto mankind.” wenerai *-<ary ot Ohio got great credit among the Democrats for a scries of flippant questions put by him to his coliegue, Mr. Bingham, in Congress a few days ago, but it is now discovered that he found them in a Cincinnati paper and appropriated them to his own use without credit. It is a pity all our Congressmen cannot sit while speaking on reconstruction, if that atti tude would result in the hatchingofas many brilliant and logical ideas as Senator Morton of Indiana expressed in his great speech in reply to Doolittle. The speech ought to be spread broadcast over (he land as a campaign document. Tlie Copperheads of Connecticut manifest much alarm from the fact that Grant and Jewell ate botli tanners. They think they ' see their hides on the iencc. flic New \ orb Evening Post says of the Southern Conventions: “We have watched attentively the action of the Southern Conven tions, and it is due to their members-for the most part men accustomed to public life—to say that they have conducted themselves with decorum, and have exhibited no desire to op press any class of their communities. On the contrary, the constitution of Alabama, the only one so Ur perfected, is remarkable for its gen eral moderation and common sense.” Glorious Hepublicau Triumph In Obi*. A Cincinnati dispatch of Monday gives the following account of the election of a mem ber of Congress from the 8th Ohio district on that day The special election to-dav for Congressman in the eighth Ohio district, to till the vacancy occasioned bv the death nt Mr. Hamilton, has resulted in the choice of tiie Republican can didate, Gen. Beatty, by a large gain over the gubernatorial vote of last fall. The Democratic candidate was Barual as Burns, ol the Pendleton school, with an in famous war record. Governor Hayes, Re publican, last year, had about 500 raqjority it the same district, which has been lately thor oughly stumped by both parties. The resuln is a perfect defeat of the Pendleton platfoini and candidate by about 1000 majority. Private dispatches received to-uight from S indusky represent the Union men confidi nt of a greater success than they had been led to expect; Marion Countv gives a Union gain of 2X1. This result is but another proof of what all along has been sufficiently plain that there is absolutely no reaction in favor of Democracy on national questions. Where the choice of a member of Congress is involved, the verdict ot'RXXiis reaffirmed again and agaiu. It was so in the Pennsylvania district where Judge Woodward canto so near defeat last fall,though it is one of the Democratic strongholds, and it Is so in the district which held its election Monday. __ ___ Dci.t'KT Strains from Df.mocratic Or gans.—The Louisville Sentinel does not like Sherman. Even Hancock is not conservative enough. It says of those Democrats who would nominate either of these men for the Presi dency, “These policy Democrats are the crazi est tellows in tho laud. They would run the devil if lie could get a vote from Plutonians, never calculating the number he would lose on this side! But, like all the military materi al that has been brought out from time to time, Hancock is disappearing from public view. He is obscured by the ghost of a murdered woman 1 The hangman of Mrs. Surratt won’t do for the candidate of Democrats any more than the Bummer Chief will do.” Sher man, of course, is the “Bummer Chief.” But Brick Pomeroy always comes in to clap the climax. Here is what he says of Grant: “The Radicals tell us that they intend sending Grant to the South as a new Ctesar. Having crossed the Rubicon, tbe Radicals should not forget to remind their Caisar that he may find in the South a Pompey’s pillar, at whose base his blood may gurgle out as he cries, el tu Brute 1” These brief extracts, taken in connection with the lute order of the Secretary of the Na vy directing that soldiers shall uo longer have the preference for employment on public works, show the sincere regard entertained by the party for Union soldiers. Gen. Jackson on the Supreme Court —The following is from Gen. Jackson's veto message accompanying the bill to incorporate the Bank of the United States, which was re turned to Congress without his approval, July 10,1832: If the opinion of the Supreme Court cover ed the whole ground of this act, it ought not to control the co-ordinate authorities of this government. The Congress, the Executive and the Court, must each lor itself be guided by its opinion of the Constitution. Each pub lic official (and the same must be true of each individual) who takes an oath to support the Constitution, swears that he will support it as he understands it and not as it is understood by others. It is as much the duty of the House of ltepreseutatives, of the Senate, and of the President, to decide upon the constitutionali ty of any bill or resolution which may be pre sented to them for passage or approval, as it is of the Supreme Judges, when it may be brought before them for judicial decision. The opimou of the Judges has no more authority over Congress than (lie opiuiou of Congress has over the judges, and, on that point, the President is independent of both. The au thority of the Supreme Court must not, there fore, be permitted to control Congress or the Executive, (or the State Legislatures) when acting in their legislative capacity,but to have only such influence as the force of their rea soning may deserve. The Democratic politicians, including the President, believe, or profess to believe in the constitution according to Jackson, and cannot refuse to accept this doctrine. After the 8tli of Jauuary banquet especially, they are bound to stand by their patron saint. Danger of Withdrawing the Fbeed men's Bureau.—A special Washington dis patch to the Boston Advertiser contains some very cogent reasons why the Freedmen’s Bu reau should not he withdrawn from Kentucky on the 15th of next month: Brigadier-General Burbank has sent a long letter to General Howard, giving the reasons why in his view, the Freedmen’s Bureau should not be withdrawn from Kentucky on the 15th of next month, as proposed in Gener al Howard’s circular letter, approved be Gen. Grant. General Burbank says that prior to the issuance of this circular the condition of thiugs ill that State ,of which he is the assist ant commissioner, was eminently satisfactory. All this he says is now changed; the circular order lor withdrawing the Bureau has em boldened the rebel element and led them into a renewal of the persecutions ot the freedmen; it is piouounced a victory over the general government, and the end of the efforts ot Congress to give the freedmen any protection or right other than that conferred by State laws. In many parts of the State it is openly declared that as soon as the Bureau is removed the freedmen will not be allowed to go before the courts to make complaints, and will be punished for such complaints as they have al ready made. The general also says that the withdrawal of the Bureau now will be most disastrous to the work of establishing and maintaining the schools in the State; new schools cannot be opened, and many of those now in operation must at once be closed. Prurient Publications.—The Boston cor respondent of the New York Times comments upon the sensational literature of the former city in a tone of great disapprobation. We copy his remarks the more readily from the fact that we have a strong impression that some of the indecent sheets referred to have a pretty wide circulation in some of our neigh boring cities,—but not in Portland, of course. The correspondent says: Within a stone’s throw, almost, of Cornhill, where religious tracts, Sunday-school books and a dozen denominational newspapers are published, there is issued weekly one of the most sensational sheets in the country; and to .judge by the very large edition it throws off, one would think that a prurient curiosity had entirely absorbed the reading community.— The toleration of this sort of “information” overflowing with voluptuous illustrations aud other designs calculated to gratify the sensual eve, is to be wondered at, notwithstanding our clergymen denounce it every Sabbath trom the pulpit. Thoseshowwindowsth.it attract the largest crowds are tilled with this stuff, and, to the shame of the sex, among its regu lar patrons are young girls aud old women, who, if they do not purchase it publicly, secure it clandestinely. The proprietor of one of these sheets pays to a single artist $6,000 a year for designs, flow much he pays his “sub jects” is another matter entirely. Proclamation by Kino Theodore.—All sorts of queer things come from the Orient— tea, chess and newspapers,little feet, hari-kari aud the pig-tail fashion of dressing the hair. Among these strange productions the proclam ations of the rulers take a high rank, for their outlandish verbiage and infinite bombast. Sir Robert Napier, upon lately setting out from Bombay to go to the conquest of Abyssinia, issued a proclamation in the language of that country, a literal translation of which was published in England. Now Theodore issues hiseounterblast. After an exordium in which the names of the Deity, the Trinity, Moses, Abraham, David aud Solomon, aud all the prophets are introduced in bewildering con fusion, his majesty says: My countrymen, “the river is dried up, its bed is empty," and they insulted me because my mother is poor, and called me the son of a beggar. But the Turks knew the greatness of my father, who made them his tributaries as far us the frontiers of Egypt, and to the gates of their cities. My father and mv mother de scended from David aud from Solomon, aud they are also of the seed of Abraham, the ser vant of God. Now those who insulted me with the name of a beggar’s son are themselves beggars, and beg for their daily bread. With out God’s will, neither wisdom nor power can save from ruin. Nevertheless, as God said un to Adam, “in the sweat of thy face thou shall eat bread,” it is necessary not to fall into slothfulness. But it is needless for me to give you this advico; for, as the proverb says, “Speak not of wisdom to the Rage: neither cut the food of a lion.” There is uoihmg poworlul in the world. Many have had mortars and cannons in abundance, aud nevertheless have succumbed. Napoleon had myriads of them, yet he died conquered, after having subjugat ed the Franks. Nicholas, emperor of the Muscovites, possessed them in abundance, and he was vanquished by the French, the English and the Turks, and died without having ac complished the desire of his heart. If in your countries you meet with any partisans of the brigand Negusye, who shall say, like the trai tors of this country, that Ethiopia is govern ed by the sou of a beggar, wager with them a Held covered with gold that I, the present emperor, am on the throne of my fathers, Abraham and David, and bring them here to be confronted with me. It is God “that hath put down the mighty from their seats, and hath exalted them of low degree.” It will be seen that on the whole there is a striking resemblance in this to Artemas ^ ard’s leefure on the “Babes in the Wood,” since liis majesty says not a word of the mat ter in hand. * The Ki k-Kli x-Kuk is tlie name of a law )< ss hand in Tennessee now carrying on a sys tematic persecution of Union men under the color ol a secret society for the promotion of masquerades, tournaments and general con viviality. Giles and Maury counties, in the central part of the State, on, and in the neigh borhood of the boundary line, are the fields of operation. Pulaski and Columbia arc the county towns, and, starting from these points, raids are made upon the industrious and peaceful farmers in the remote villages, * BenlnUtcilsci Democratic Cou&rtM* man. The following extract from a \Yashington letter, giving on account of an eminent pugil ist who iepresents a Democratic constituency in Congress, is calculated to inspire eveiy American heart with emotions ot national pride and of gratitude to the sixth ward of New York city: The Hon. John Morrissey has won golden opinions since his accession to the House, from the quietness and unobtrusiveness ot his deportuieut and the affability ot Ins disposi tion. He is said to be one of the most genial of men in his intercourse wuh Ins fellow members is not at all proud, and will associ ate even with Ashley on turns of equality, though his private opinion of the Toledo member is not good. He said on a recent oc casion. in a confidential way that, he did not see how a man witli Ashley’s record of early life could have the impudence to sit in Congress; and there are few who will ques tion the wisdom of that remark or doubt its pertinence. One of the best intellectual and moral treats a man can enjoy in Washington is to get the Hon. Mr. Morrissey to turn on tile stop-cock of unrestrained converse, and tel) the secrets of his inmost, heart. He will do it on very slight provocation, and keen you chained to his interesting discourse for hours at a time. He delights to tell of his feats of prowess in the ring, especially his memorable match with Heenan. X heard him tell that thrilling story once, ana snail never forget how he shouldered his fists and showed the manner in which fights were won ‘ Golly, how I did tremble when I was coming to the' scratch that time. Heenan was too big for me, and that morning I’d have j.iven a good deal to get out of the scrape. Still I made up iny tniud that as I had put all my money—every d—d cent 1 had [I think he said $1,700] into the thing, I was going in, ard then, thought I, I’ll be d—d if I didn’t whip him too. When I looked at Heenan, stripped for the fight, I thought I’d be whipped sure— then again 1 made up my mind to make bim work lor it. 1 eyed him all over as he satin his corner. Good God, says I to myself, 1 can’t do nothing with that fellow; but then, again, I thought I must. Well, we came up to the first round. Whew! I remember how he did plug me. I tell you what it is, gentlemen, l don’t want to brag of my own pluck, for it would be uo use now that I am out of the ring, hut if I hadn’t been pretty good game, I’d have caved in on that first round. After a long tussel we fell, and I was mightily glad of it. It was while we were down this time that I made up my mind I was going to whip him. Heenan tried to choke me while we were on the ground. He got his hand on my throat this way (suiting the action to the word). When 1 l'elt him do that, thinks I to myself, ‘sonny, I’ve got you now.’ I thought that a mau who’d do that was a coward, and Irom that time to the end of the fight I felt sure of whipping him, and would have whipped him, just as 1 did, if the fight had lasted just twice as long as it did. If Heenan had pluck equal to his strength, all hell could’ut whip him; but he liain’t, and it's no work at it’s no work at all to whip him, if you can only stand up under hint for the first few minutes,” Yon wounld’t think to hear Hon. John in reminis cences of the ring, that he considered his pres ent position in the light of promotion or ad vancement. On the contrary, he thinks the noblest work of God a first class boxer, and doubtless views it in the light of a dis honor to the ring that one of its brightest or naments and stoutest champions should have degenerated into a Congressman. Retubn of United States .Bonds fbom Eubope.—The London Daily News by the last steamer, says that English and German holders had returned to the New York market a very large amount of U. S. Bonds in conse quence of the disgust excited by General But ler’s motion lor paying off tbo 5-20 bonds in American currency, and by the discussion on the subject which had since been continued to the serious injury of American credit. This is precisely what everybody expected from tho fantastic trieks of the repudiators. They may learn ultimately, though at great cost, that untarnisliod national faith is worth something ii dollars and cents. The Ball-Ak.ep.3 Contboveusy. —In the “Nebula;” of the February number of the Gal axy, Mr. Richard Grant White has the follow ing: Tho great literary’question of the day is. Who wrote “Rock me to sleep, mother?” up on which momentous Subject a Mr. A. M. W. Ball has loaded himself into a book and fired himself off upon an unresisting public; and, not content with this cruelty, has rammed himself down very hard in the “Tribune,” and let himself off again, with tho same purpose and with equal effect. Well, we have read Mr. Ball’s defence of his claim to the authorship of “Rock me to sleep, mother”—of which amaz ing performance we had scarcely heard until we received this Ball in our brain, and whieli is a very nice little poem in the sentimental style—and without any knowledge of cither himself or Mrs. Akers, er of. the dispute “as to the authorship in question, except Mr. Ball’s own statement and the testimony which he brings in to support his claim, upon that we decide without hesitation that, whoever may have written “Rock me to sleep, mother,” Mr. Ball did not. Moreover, if he were the man to have written it, he would not be the man to make such a fuss about it. It is right that Mr. Ball should be told that he has in this matter behaved very foolishly. * — Woodstock Railroad.—The Woodstock Railroad Company have their portion of the route between White River Junction and Rutland under contract, and it is reported that the rest of the route, from Woodstock to Rutland, will be pushed through as soon as the Woodstock line. This will make a through connection from Franklin on the Northern New Hampshire road to Chicago over the New York Central, and a gap of some twenty miles between Alton Bay and Franklin is all that is lacking to render the route available to Port land. Sometime that gap will be filled. * A List of Failukes in New York city for the four weeks ending January 25, exhibits aggregate liabilities ol ever eight million dol lars, of which the assets will cover about one fourth. TnE Providence Journal speaks highly of Hon. Neal Dow’s temperance lecture on Sun day evening. It says he “was particularly se vere against those members of the medical faculty who are constantly prescribing alco holio stimulants in sickness. The facts of physiology which he cited in support of the doctrine of total abstinence, afforded novel as well as convincing arguments, and the statis tics with which he illustrated his points were collated with much research. His remarks were largely interspersed with humor, and when they took a satirical turn, gave evidence of a power which could not be misapprehend ed. At a subsequent business meeting of the Union, a vote of thanks was tendered to the honorable gentleman for his interesting, earnest and effective appeal.” Horace Greeley says he regards the New York Times as the ablest and most effective Democratic paper in the country. Kev. O* P. TucUcrmnu. At a meeting of the Executive Committee for the relief of sufferers by the fire, holden January 27,18t>8, the following preamble and resolutions were unanimously adopted and or dered to bo placed on record: Whereas, In the providence of God, Rev. O. P. Tuckorman, our associate and brother, has been removed from his earthly labors, leaving in this community the memory of a Christian character and work, and a field of philanthro pic toil not easily to be supplied with a suc cessor as zealous and devoted as he has been: therefore Resolved, That gratefully acknowledging tho long continued and faithful services of our la mented associate, we record the expression of our sorrow, that we are deprived of the judic ious counsels, the warm heart and the ready help of one who from its organization has been the most efficient agent and assistant of the Committee for the Relief of Sufferers by tho fire. Resolved, That greatly indebted as we are to bis knowledge of those most needy and his forethought in arranging such a system as greatly assisted us in the work of distribution, we cannct omit this tribute to the memory ol one whoso earnest endeavor was, regardless of his own ease and comfort, to do good to his fellow men. Resolved, That we desire to offer to his be reaved family the heartfelt assurance of our deep sympathy with them in their affliction, and our conviction that in this city which has so long enjoyed his self sacrificing labors of charity, both in ordinary and remarkable times of trial, his name will not soon be forgotten. Resolved, That the foregoing resolutions be signed by the Chairman and Secretary and forwarded to the family of our late associate. Henuf Fox, Chairman. Geo. E. B. Jackson, Secretary. State News. AROOSTOOK COUNTY. AVe learn from the Sunrise that a man by the name of lteuben G. Hoyt, who has lived for some year or more in Maysville, removing thither from Lowell, Mass., was detected a few days since in stealing some two thousand of shingles and selling them in Fort Fairfield.

Strike.—In consequence of a notice given by the proprietors of all the largest car riage manufactories in this city of a large re duction in the wages paid to the employees, to take place on and after the 1st of February, the workmen struck on Monday, and refused to do any further work. They number over two hundred men, and have since held meet ings to adopt measures to maintain the pres ent rates. At a meeting held by them yester day afternoon some of the proprietors were present. Every thing was conducted poacea bly and with propriety, but no conclusion or agreements were arrived at. The proprietors say that in the present dull state of the mar ket it would be better for them to suspend op erations for a while; but they are willing to keep the establishments in operation provided they can do so without loss; and for this pur pose it is absolutely necessary to reduce the pay of the workmen. The reduction proposed by the manufactur ers in this city, Saco and Biddeford is twenty per cent., which is less than the reduction which has been made in the wages at New York, New Haveu, and other places. There is no ill feeling existing between employees and employers, and it is highly probable that a mutual understanding will be arrived at, and work in the manufactories will be continued. The proprietors express a willingness to pay all that the business will afford, and the em ployees are now looking at it in this light. Chbouo Lithographs.—A largo and varied assortment of colored lithographs was receiv ed yesterday at the establishineat of Andrew Geyer & Co., Free street. Some of them, in cluding fine large pictures of Lakes Como aud Maggiore, and scenes in the celebrated lake district of England, are from a well known house in London, whose pictures have acquir ed a world wide fame, and profess to represent the work of the artists with considerable ac curacy. These are comparatively cheap, and to those who cannot afford to purchase origi nal works by artists of merit, they are a pleas ant substitute, often possessing a peculiar val ue of their own, apart from the imitation of oil painting. They will be sold at low rates, Mr. Geyer being determined to afford these goods as cheaply as our citizens can purchase in Boston or New York. The public are invited to examine this new collection. Deehiho Hall.—The attractive exhibition of Herman & Co. continues to draw crowded houses. Last evening there was a very fash ionable as well as crowded audience. The performances received great applause, and the gifts were disposed of fairly and handsomely. The chamber set was given to Mr. John With am, Mayo street, and the parlor set to Mr. John Anderson, Green street. This evening, in addition to the handsomest chamber set that has yet been offered, there will he two damask lounges and 97 other pres ents of valuable and useful articles disposed of. It would be wise for those who wish tick • ets to secure them during the day, the ticket office being open from 10 o’clock A. M. to 5 o’clock P. M.
