The days of uncertainty, doubt and confu
sion are drawing rapidly to u close. The evils ol
conflicting authorities ami of antagonistic views
of public policy will be followed by that unity
of purpose on the part ol the different de
partments of the government which is indis
pensably necessary to the prosperity of busi
ness enterprise. The business men of the
country are glad that the crisis has come, since
its ultimate occurrence was inevitable. The
immediate effect may be unfavorable, but a
few days of agitation will be more than aton
ed for by the quiet and security which are
sure to follow the impeachment and removal
of Andre y Johnson. He constitutes the nu
cleus around which all the disturbing ele
ments cluster.
It is not, therefore, hard to determine where
the sympathies of the merchants and munu
acturers will b * in the quarrel now pouting at
Washington. If the President triumphs, it
can only be by means ofrevolu iouary measures
like those by which the republican institu
tions of France have been repeatedly over
thrown. This of course would utterly destroy
the confidence of foreign nations in our finan
cial ability. Our credit abroad is already sul
flciently poor on account of the persistency,
shown by prating demagogues in representing
that the country is not prepared to carry out
in good faith contracts made with its creditors.
Revolutions and usurpations such as the Pres
ident clearly meditates would irretrievably
ruin it. Every day he continues in power
there is danger of a disturbance of the peace.
His presence at the White House is a stand
ing invitation for revolt at the South. The
organization of the Maryland militia was in
spired by him and liis treasonable advisers.—
The Knights of the Golden Circle, the
“Kuklux ICIan*' and all the rebel bands of
conspirators look to imu as their leader.
With Johnson once out oi the way the as- j
pect of affairs becomes entirely. changed.— j
The merchants of the country will no longer
hesitate in the execution of their plans on ac
count of an ever present feeling of uncertain
ty as to what a day may bring iortb. There
will be but one policy with respect to the
South. There will be but one policy on all
those questions with respect to which the ob
stinacy of the Exeeuthe has kept the coun
try for months on the verge of lresh out
breaks.
All men, without respect to party, even ?f ;
they are actuated by no higher motive than
intelligent regard lor their own interests,
ought to see in the gathering storm at Wash
ington that whic h will speedily purify the po
litical atmosphere, and bring us to times like
the good old days of peace and plenty.
Still Anotulu Nomination.—Ou Satur
day the President sent his private Secretary,
Col. Moore, to the Capitol, with it message
giving his reasons lor removing Stanton and
nominating Thomas Ewing, Senior, of Ohio,
lor Secretary of War. “Perley” of the Boston
Journal says that Mr. Ewing is a politician of
the last generation, having been born in Vir
ginia, Dec. 28,1789. He was in the United
States Senate in 1830, and was afterwards put
forward by his friends us a Presidential candi
date and called “the Ohio Silt-Boiler.” He
was Secretary of the Treasury in Gen. Harri
son’s Cabinet in 1841, and Secretary of the In
terior In 1818. Recently he has resided in
Washington, practicing somewhat in the Su
preme Court. He is u stout, bald-headed,
pleasant old gentleman, who delights in talk
ing about his son-in-law, Lieut. Gen. Sher
man.
Pendleton is supposed to be dead. Tlie
conclusion of the Democratic National Com
mittee to call the Convention at New York is
an evidence that the eastern opponents of Pen
dleton have gained the preliminary battle.
The Pendleton men, too, wanted the Conven
tion to meet earlier than the 4tli of July.
Pendleton would be a good man to help along
the Republican cause during the campaign,
but no better than ex-Governor Seymour of
New York, who now seems to he the man
whose name is most prominently mentioned
in connection with the nomination, llis ad
dress to the New York rioters in 18RS will tell
agaiust him fearfully in the campaign.

The New York Tribune says that llie good
old days are returning to the South. Near
Athens, Tenn., two weeks ago, a Methodist
preacher was seized, blindfolded, carried away
from the road and severely flogged. His
offense was that lie belonged to the Holston
Conference, and expressed his determination
to do his duty as a minister. What is the use
of being free and independent citizens unless
you can wallop your preacher now and then?
A Democratic paper calls upon all members
of its party to withdraw from the Grand Army
of the Republic. They took that course dur

The loyal States come promptly to the sup
port of Congress. Gov, Oglesby’s telegram
promising the aid of Illinois, was followed by

The Republican Candidate far mayor*
The demoustr&tion at City H ill last eve
ning in tavor of the Republican candidate for
mayor, was no more than might reasonable
be expected and no more than Mr. McLellan
deserves. We have reached a very critical
period in our municipal history. The war is
over. This country is uot France, and An
drew Johnson is uot Louis Napoleon. If the
President should attempt auy open violence,
his Mexican uotious will be corrected iu a
manner which will be a warning to all his
sucoe sois. The war then is over, but it has eft
tee city in debt, and that debt seems likely to
be practically increased by the partial assump
tion of the municipal war debtJ by the State.
The fire of I860 was a serious drawback. In
compliauce with the almost unanimous de
mand of our citizens, the city government has
proceeded at once to restore the city hall and
school houses; to lay out the little common ou
Congress street; and to put the fire depart
ment in a condition of efficiency never before
known. The city has also lent its aid to cit
izens who desired to build up the ruined
streets, and to others still, who looking to the
future,are laboring to extend and perfect our
railway system.
This is all well, but in atteinptiug to do so I
| much it is right and proper that duo cau
tiou should be exercised, lest by overdo:ng we
fail to accomplish all we might. It is well to
carry all the sail we can, bat if we carry too
much the ‘ too propitious bieeze” may send us
all tc the bottom. We want a captain who
knows every spar and timber in the ship;
who will not allow her to be crowded beyond
her endurance. Captain McLellan has sailed
her belore. He has proved his capacity in the
stormiest passage she will ever make. In the
dark days of 1803 he w as elected mayor. For
throe years he stood at the head ot our muni
cipal administration. During those three
years no debt w as incurred for any except war
purposes. The expenses for bounties and re
cruiting were much less than in other towns
and cities. There were no dealings with bro
kers. The city met the recruit face to face
and paid him a larger bounty than he would
have received through a broker who at the
same time would have swindled the city. The
quota of the city was always full, and after
the close of the war Adjutant General Hotis
dou wrote: “The management of Portland’s
ll nances has ever been deservedly an object of
my admiration. Had the quota departments
of municipalities in this State been conducted
with the discretion, skill and true liberality
which ever characterized that of Portland, the
ranks of our regiments would have been far
better and more promptly filled, and the labors
of this Department lessened one-half.”
The total increase of the city debt under
Mayor McLelIan’s administration, notwith
standing an expenditure for war purposes of
nearly $300,000, and notwithstanding the de
rangement of the currency, waB less than $40,
000. JJuder the same administration the sink
ing tund was put upon such a footing as to se
cure the payment ot the entire debt as it ma
tures.
J liese are the proofs o' Mr. MeLellan’s bus
iness qualifications for tlie office to which be
has been nominated. Nobody denies that be
is in eutire sympathy with his party on all na
tional questions. He is' no .respecter of per
sons. He could not be identified with the
aristocratic party which now calls itself Dem
ocratic. It is alleged that be is no prohibition
ist, yet it is a matter of record that the num
ber of prosecutions during his administration
were more numerous than during the three
years preceding. Without nrakiug the liquor
law a special object of interest aud attention,
he did his duty aud his whole duty. Deoidcd
aud firm, he made some enemies; what mau
is without them? His officials acts have beeu
at times severely criticised,yet on the whole
they are admitted to have been upright, pru
dent and just.
Such is the man whom the Republicans of
Portland, acting throngb their authorized
representatives in convention assembled,
have chosen for their candidate. There is no
question of his in tegvity, or capacity. Shall
we not then, at this time, in the beginning
of tlie Presidential year which is to settle the
reconstruction question ouce and forever—
shall we not then lead off with the accustom
ed good omen? Shall we not throw our lull
majority into the scale against a President
who even now rushes blindly upon his fate?
Can any Republican give even a respectable
excuse for so casting his vote as to give aid
aud comfort to the enemy next Monday?
Ail luierc-tiux Occaiita.
After being released on bail, Saturday, Gen.
Lorenzo Thomas consulted the President, was
mildly reproved by him for not taking posses
sion ol th e War Department more promptly
and then went again to the Department to de
mand the retirement of Stanton. What then
occurred is described as follows:
At noon he presented himself at Mr. Stan
ton’s private room in the Department, where
four ortive members of the House were visiting.
He seemed a little embarrassed, but directly
remarked to Mr. Stanton that he had been ar
rested.
" Ves,” said Mr. Stanton, “ I heard yon had."
Some little conversation about the proceed
ings in court tollowed, and General Thomas
then said he had come by order of the Pres
ident to take possession of the War Depart
ment as Secretary of War ad interim.
“ Tou are not Secretary of War ad interim ”
said Mr. Stanton, ‘‘but Adjutant General of
the army, and your place is down stairs."
General Thomas again said that he came by
order of the President to take possession ol
the office; to which Mr. Stanton again re
ponded that he was not Secretary ol War ad
interim, and that he would not allow him to
exercise the duties of the office.
To this General Thomas replied that he was
acting in obedience to positive orders from the
President, and tlieu went across the hall into
General Scliriver’s office, and soon sent word
that he would like to see Mr. Stanton a few
moments in private.
ilie Secretary followed him, und General
Thomas a third time said h s direct instruc
tions from the President were to take posses
sion of the office and exercise the functions of
Secretary of War ad interim, and Mr. Stan
ton a third time responded that he would not
ho allowed to do anything of the kind, adding
that he would do well to return to his office
and go about his duties as Adjutant-General.
General Thomas said he would uot do this,
to which Mr. Stanton answered with profound
courtesy, “ The Adjutant General can certain
ly sit up here as long as he pleases."
General Thomas then said that it was his
fill thcr duty to demand possession of the books
and the day’s mail, to which Mr. Stanton made
reply, “And it is my further duty as Secretary
of War, to inform you that the only books and
mail you can touch are such us strictly belong
to the Adjutant General."
General Thomas next suggested that he
might be obliged to issue an order that Mr.
Stanton should uot be recognized as Secretary
of War. J
“All,” replied Mr. Stanton, “ I have already
ordered that you shall not be recognized by
anybody in the Department except as Adju
tant General of the Army, and it is entirely
useless to talk further about your acting as
Secretary of War ad interim. I refuse to sur
render my office to you, no matter what your
orders arc, ami again repeat that your duties
are down stairs.”
This ended the conversation about official
matters, and General Thomas soon left the
Department lor the White House.
Washington Hews.—We select the follow
ing as the most important aDd interesting
items in the Washington dispatches to the
eveuing papers:
Attorney General Stanbery states his opin
ion of the situation as follows:
‘ J do not think any it.roe will be necessary,
and I don’t think any will be used. The ques
tion is one involving the power of the Pres
ident to exercise a preogative accorded him by
the constitution. As lung as an opportunity
IS given to resolve and debate, hold meetings
and indulge in a fair exchange of views, there
is no danger oi serious trouble; hut to restrain
these privileges would probably lead to some
other means of giving vent to the views held
by the opposite parties. It is like two lawyers
that take issue npou points oflaw or fact, and
have the appearance of great hostility, but they
arc just as much friends as ever.’
The Herald’s dispatch says numerous dis
patches have been received from the Grand
Army of the Republic endorsing the action of
Congress. The general tenor of these dis
patches is that the members of the Grand
Army ol the Republic will not see Congress
overthrown, ami if violence is used In ejecting
Mr. Stanton 100.0U0 men arc ready to come to
\\ ash mg ton and put him hack. The Order is
reported as in a great state of exeilement, and
is unanimously resoited to take sides with the
policy of Congress and defend it in all its
measures if affairs are brought to such an ex
peuienr.
A rumor is abroad to-night that Chief Jus
tice Chase visited the President Sunday after
noon, and that it is quite possible ho will exeit
his influence with the more considerate and
judicious leaders of the radical party. Xo
compromise could possibly he effected that
did not stipulate for the removal of Mr. Stan
ton.
Gov. Swann, of Mary laud, is iu consultation
with the President at Washington. This gives
color to the report that the Maryland militia
has been offered to the President by the com
mander of that organization.
General Lew Wallace, who was ordered to
, at Washington by the commander of
• *5® Grand Army of the Republic, has ar
r’ a,H* is in consultation with General
iiO^au.
tile ^President'^ KI'0('ial mentions a report that
callin'. umaHi 1,1 I,r,'l>aring a proclamation
in this i,Leuu“i2'ttco“'0 the rescue
and that he has .»tnS To hhiffitouce
some ol the leading lawyers wi7T„ststance
Messrs. Black, Blair and others, to afd him'in
this emergency. BeverM interviews between
Gen. Lrnory and the President have been
held, and it is said that Gordon Granger will
take command in case Emory is removed bv
the President. a
General Grant has issued an order callin',
ihe attention of commanders of posts to the
recent act of Congress, that all orders to the
army must pass through his hands; and to the
tact that his headquarters are in this city, and
that orders emanating from any oth«fr source#
must not uotbe observed.
The Times' dispatch says the apathy among
the Democratic politicians and members or
Congress on the subject is astoni>hiug. Few
or none of them seem disposed Jo take up the
President’s defence with any spirit. 1 aey all
complaiu that the President did not consult
them in this movement and they wash then
hands of it. _ .
An officer of the Union Leasue of America,
a colored organization ot this Pistriot, offered
its services to-night to an eiuiucn’t radical
Congressman in case of need. He says that
in ten hours he could have in the city, under
arms, 4000 men, 2500 ofwhom had sce« service
in the war and were veteran troops.
The Attitude of Miutauy Men.—It is
parte ularly gratifying just at this time to
know that the military men at Washington
are not available for the President's purposes
A special dispatch to the Boston Advertiser
says:
1 have to tell you on undoubted authority
that the President has been sounding \arious
military officers here to see what he could do
with them: he sent for General Emory com*'
mauding this department, Saturday afternoon,
and had an interview of an hour with him.
The general has been a little under the cloud
among the Republicans because of bis con
duct at the breaking out of the rebellion; but
I aui convinced that fie will be as true as
steel to us in any new emergency. He told
the President that the law he had liimselt
signed required that all orders to the Army
must go through headquarters; that he should
obey all orders reaching him through General
Grant, and that lie could not obey any others.
Sunday afternoon the President Sent for
Colonel Wallace, commanding the post ol
Washington, and went over the whole ground
of authorities with him. The colonel lias been
regarded by some as a triflo uncertain, hut he
too, declared to Mr. Johnson that he should,
feel hound by the law lorbidding him to obey
any order not coming through army head
quarters.
Better still is the response ol ben, ixeorge
H. Thomas upon receiving notice that he
had received a nomination as brevet General.
On Saturday morning he telegraphed to Sen
ator Wade as follows:
The morning papers of Louisvil.e announce
that my name was yesterday sent to the Sen
ate for confirmation as Brevet Lieutenant
General and Brevet General. I was appoint
ed a Major-General in the United States
army for the battle of Nashville. My services
since the war do not merit so high a compli
ment, and it is now too late to be regarded as
a compliment if conferred for services during
the war. 1 therefore earnestly request that
the Senate will not confirm the nomination.
George H. Thomas,
Major-General.
Perhaps the President will now feel content
to make no more experiments with a view to
determining where his army Iriends are. Ho
will be obliged to fall back on Iiousseau, Han
cock, Steedman and Custer. He has tried
Sheridan, Grant, Sherman and Thomas in
succession with the most discouraging re
sults.
National, Board ok Fire Underwriters.
—Tho second annual convention of the Na
tional Board of Fire Undewriters assembled
in New York Wednesday. 8ixty-five compa
nies were represented. The report of the Ex
ecutive Committee, was read and accept'd. and
it to be sent toall companies in the Uni ed
States. Among other interesting points, the
report assumes that, considering the risks in
volved, the capital of Arc insurance compa
nies may rigbt’j eqpect an interest of twelve
percent. But it is found that an average of
nine years, among the companies of New
York, yielded them less than nine and one
half percent, j*-i annum. W'hile the amount
of premiums m 1865 was nearly three times
larger than in 1859, the losses of that year had
increased loan amount nearly five times larg
er, and the |>ercentage of losses on net premi
ums had increased from 42.57 per tout. in 1859
to 71.38 per cent, in 1865. The report re
uiiirKb.
The insured may find matter for grave con
sideration in the tact that, in 1839,8719809,620
at risk, had, for its protection, capital and as
sets to the amount of $26,323,381, w hile at the
e»d of I860 $2,153, 595 507 had $15,360,887. The
per centage of protection in 18*) was 3.65 per
cent.,ill 1805 2.38 per cent., and at the end of
1806 2.02 per cent., showing a decrease of 1.63
per cent, of protection to the insured—an
alarming decrease when applied to a sum
nearly as large as our natioual debt.
The Committ 0 on Incendiarism and Ar
son reported .that they had not been able to
gather any reliable information 011 the sub
ject, and inst anted the case of a company
that reported that ninety flee per cent of their
losses by fire had been caused by arson and
incendiarism.
It was voted that whenever rates have been
fixed by the committee, under the direction ol
the Committee on Local Boards and Rates,
they shall not be changed without the appro
val of the Committee on Local Boards and
Rates first had and obtained.
The resolution was adopted that, no losses
of more than $500 should he naid within sixty
days without consent of three-fourths ot the
companies holding policies on property destroy
ed. A Iso,resolutions decla: ing that the Govern
ment tax on Insurance Companies was exces
sive and should he modified. Also, a resolu
tion calling on Legislatures to enact laws to
punish those who attempted to defraud Insur
ance Companies.
In view of the facts presented in the Re
ports, who can wonder at the increase of rates
of insurance?
feller from Speaker Colfax.
A letter from Speaker Colfax to Governor
Baker of Illinois has been recently published,
from which we make the following extract:
It may not he inappropriate, on the thresh
old of the important campaign before us, to
look back for a few minutes at those deeds and
triumphs ot our young and patriotic party
which are garnered up iu our national history
and which no defamation bv our enemies can
ignore or obscure.
When the rebellion, with its Democratic
P.es dent, Democratic Cabinet officers and
Democratic Generals, threw down the gaunt
let at the feet of the natiou they had resolved
to destroy, and when the Democratic leaders
of the North, in reply, shouted “No coercion,”
it was the Union Republican party who wrote
on its banners, “The last man and the last dol
lar if need be;" and the unconquerable armies
their Congressional legislation called to the
held, finally “coerced” the rebellion into sub
jection.
In the darkest days of the struggle, when at
every street-corner we were tauntingly told by
Democrats, “You can’t conquer the* South,
there was oue party that never despaired of
ihe Jvepublicj and that party was the one
whose delegates now meet at our State Capital.
When unprecedented'aud onerous taxation
became necessary to maintain our credit to
pay and supply our heroic soldiers, and to keep
our flag floating iu the field, we dared to defy
the prejudice which every Democratic speaker
and editor attempted to inflame against the
burdens of taxation; and thus daring tri
umphed.
When conscription laws became a military
necessity, to fill up our regiments decimated
again and again by the bullets of the enemy
aud the diseases of the camp, the siege and
the march, and when the land was filled with
democratic denunciations of these laws we
risked popularity, victory, and all, by defend
ing them as bravely as our veterans defended
the country in the field.
When Mr. Lincoln at last struck at Slavery
a? fhe cause of all our woes, as well as the
right arm ol the rebellion,and the Democratic
orators and writers most scandalously aud per
sistently calumniated us as haviug converted
the war lor the Union into an abolition war to
free negroes we fearlossiy allied our cause to
that ot the humble and helpless, and Provid
ence rewarded us for our fidelity by that bril
liant succession of triumphs which gave salva
tion to the Union anil freedom to the slave
When the national Convention of onr op
ponents at Chicago dared to hang out the
white flag ol surrenler, by proclaiming the
war a failure, and demanding an immediate
cessation of hostilities, we promptly accented
tlie issue. And the soldier with his cartridge
box, and the voter# with the ballot-box. united
:n stampiug their indignant condemnation on
the disgraceful avowal.
When the Government was compelled to i<
■ le bonds by the hundreds of millions for the
preservation ol our national existence, Demo
crats ridiculed them as worthless, aud caution
ed the people against risking their means in
them. But the loyal people were deaf to their
warnings; aqd now the same party denounce
them as Having made too good an investment
in their purchase.
vv lien greeuoacks were authorized bv a
Republican Congress, who can forget the
Democratic predictions that it would ultimate
ly take a hatfall of them to buy a hat? Aud
now they have the assurance to seek to make
political capital out of their popularity.
When the XXXIXth Congress rejected the
President’s policy of reconstruction, and in
sisted on one which should embody constitu
tional guarantees for Hie future, with full pr0.
teel ion for all who loved the Hag and the
Union, oureuemiet denounced us ns wf-bing
to postpone reionstroction. AW these suns
Democrats, with the rally the President are
striving to put every possible stumbling-block
in the way of the returu of these Self-exiled
St itcs.
When “the XIVtIi Article” was proposed as
ati amendment to the Constitution—embodv

of Ohio and New Jersey endeavor to with
draw the assent of those States to this benefi
cent Constitutional Amendment, leaving the
door open for the presentation of these iiemo
claims if a Democratic Congress could be
UUUM‘11.
I will not extend this letter by a defence of
the Congrrsdonal policy of Reconstruction,
tor Senator Morton's able vindication ol’it has
covered the whole ground unanswerably. Suf
fice it to say, that Congress, having authoriz
ed the suffrage of every free man iu the South
ern States, Rebels and all, except those who
by violating official oaths, had added perjury
to treason, and tlie Democratic party having
denounced us for thDB limited and tempor
ary disfranchisement, the same party shouts
its rejoicings over the fact that the remainder
of the-unrepentant Rebel! in Alabama have
recently and voluntarily disfranchised them
selves, iu the vain attempt to prevent tile reor
ganization of that State on a loyal basis.
And the Congress, to whose fidelity and in
flexible firmness the nation, despite the criti
cism of friend or (oe, owes the prevention of

<»raiitl Republican Rally*
If any doubt had been allowed to arise in
the mind of any Republican as to the interest
felt in the coming municipal election, aid tbe
determination to roll up a rousing majority on
Monday next, lor Capt. Jacob McLellan, that
doubt must have been entirely banished last
evening, while looking around upon the sea of
upturned fuces, and Jistening to the eloquent
and forcible speeches, and the deafening de
monstrations of applause with which they
were received. The City Hall was well filled,
more persous being present during the even
ing than could have been seated, and tbe en
thusiasm seemed hut little short of that of the
evening before an important State or National
electiou. The meeting was called to order by
M. A. Blanchard. Esq., one of the City Com
mittee, and Hon. A. E. Stevens elected chair
man. Mayor Stevens, on taking the chair,
briefly addressed the meeting, and then called
on Nathan Webb, Esq., who was lollowed by
B. D. Verrill, Esq., W. W. Thomas, Jr. Esq..
.1. C. Woodman, Esq., and B. Kingsbury, Jr.
Esq.
Tbe following resolutions, presented by
Judge Kingsbury, were received with shouts
of applause aud uuauimously adopted:
Unsolved, That having associated together as a po
lilical party fur the attainment of what we Le love to
be the best measures for tlie public security and
prospei-ity.and the welfare and happiness of the peo
ple, we will, in pursuit of those ends, support IIon.
Jacob McLellan, the regular nominee ol that
parly, an-i will not suffer petty disscnsl- ns or per
sonal prejudices to divert us from the great purposes
of ou association.
Unsolved, That in the present crisis in the public
affairs, when municipal elections have assumed a na
tion importance, we hold It the duty of every Re
publican to cast his vote so that it may serve to as
sure the Congress ot the United States that the peo
ple rely upon their patriotism, intelligence and cour
age to carry the country safely through its present
trials, and will sustain ail honest ethnos to that end.
The meeting adjourned, with three rousing
cheers lor Capt. Jacob McLellan, to Saturday
evening next, at the same place.
Ah Irish Family in Dhireu.
There is now on board the British steamship
Peruvian, which sails front this port next
Saturday, a family of sevcu children, without
father or mother, in circumstances of distress
and perplexity which must powerfully appeal
to all charitable hearts. Their lather, William
Owens, has been in America for three years
last Christmas. By industry and economy he
was at last enabled to send for his family,
which had been left in Slovnougli, couuty An
trim, .in the north of Irelaud. The mother,
with her sev n childreo, Margaret aged 19,
James 15, Mary Ann 13, Eliza 8, Agnes and
Sarah (twins) 4, and John 3, took passage on
board the Nova Scotian from Londonderry. At
the last moment the mother went ashore to
write and post a letter, as Margaret says, and
the steamer sailed without her. Their slender
stock of money was in the mother’s possession
and the children were left with only their pass
age tickets. This was on the 31st of January.
After a stormy passage the steamer arrived at
Portlaud on the 16th inst. To completo the
misfortunes of this poor family they had for
gotten the name of the town in Canada West
where their lather is to be found. HU letters
were all in his wife’s possession. They have a
brother, Robert Owens, at Norval, C.W., when
last heard from; a cousin of their mother’s,
James Moffat, they believe, is employed as a
carter at Toronto; they tell also of a cousin of
their father’s, Arthur Atkinson, who has been
in America for fifteen years, and is now some
where in Canada West, in what place they do
not know.
We do hot learn that any effort has been
made to trace these slender clews to the where
abouts of their friends on this side of the At
lantic. The offioers of the steamship have
treated the children very kindly. They have
been kept oh ship board, and when the Nova
Scotian sailed last Sunday were transferred to
the Peruvian with the understanding, vn are
told, that they are to be carried back to Ire
land ou her next trip. She sails next Satur
day. Befoie that time every means of dis
covering their friends in Canada ought to be
triod. The motlieris probably already on her
way to this country, and it would be a terrible
disappointment if ou landing the poor woman
should learn that her children had returned to
Ireland. If by the help of the Atlantic cable
her movements could he traced, we have no
doubt that there are generous people who
would gladly contribute to help this unfortun
ate family out of their perplexity. It does not
appear that they have a claim upon any cor
poration or society. It is one of the "many
cases where a direct appeal must be made to
charitable persons and associations. The
children are intelligent and have evidently
been carefully though humbly brought up.
They should he provided with food and shelter
and protected until they can be in some way
restored to their friends. As we would have
our own children dealt with, it by any chance
they were leit strangers in a strange land, so
should we deal with these helpless strangers.
liELUiNo Hall.—The performances of Gar
laud’s Burlesque and Couiedj Troupe atDeer
ing Hall last evening gave great satisfaction.
This evening the screaming farce ol the Irish
Tutor will he performed, together with the
burlesque of Cindrella. If you want to enjoy
a good laugh go and see the performances.

Horse Railroad Affairs.—At the annual
meeting of the stockholders of the Horse Rail
road in January, a motion wa.v passed au
thorising the Directors, if thought expedient,
to lease the W eslbrook portion of the road.—
Subsequently parties came forward aud offer
ed to take a lease of that part of the road, at
3 per cent, per annum on the cost for the first
ten years, and G per cent, for the next ten
years. The new Board of Directors have con
sidered the matter carefully, and on Saturday
declined the proposition.
On the subject of fares, they returned to
their first love, by ordering on and after
March 1st, in the city, single fares shall be 5
cents, 23 tickets for $1; Westbrook, Morrill’s
Corner, 16 tickets for $1, single lure, 10 cents;
Woodford’s Corner, 20 tickets lor §1, single
fare, 8 cents. Thus this vexed question ot
fares has been settled in favor of the public;
and we trust it will prove satisfactory all
round, cause more to avail themselves of this
cheap mode of conveyance, and also enable the
Directors to make a satisfactory report to
I their stockholders in January next.
Tire citizens of Gorham village, ever alive to
objects of civilization and refinement, have
liberally responded to tlie preRent of a clock,
made to them by the lion. Toppnu Kobie, to be
placed in the steeple of the Congregational
church, and have raised their subscriptions to
the amount of over three hundred dollars, ior
the erection of a design accordingly. At their
last meeting, they unanimously voted a tender
of thanks to Messrs. Geo. II. Stephenson, Ed
ward H. Stephenson, and Albert Storer, resi
dents of New York, for their generous remern
branco unitedly, in the handsome donation of
one huudred dollars additional,Yorltie further
ance of the same object. The clock work is to
be completed by the 10th ot April next.
This is somewhat of a novelty, and we trust
other villages in Maine may in lime follow the
praiseworthy example.
Gorham, Feb. 24,1868. S.
A Curious Drawinti — A drawing by the
late John Carter of England, called “A liat
Catcher and His Dog,” is now on exhibition
at Messrs. Geyer & -Co.’s. Carter was a silk
weaver, without education. By injuries re
ceived by falling from a tree his body below
his neck became paralyzed. He lived for 18
years in this condition, and learned to draw
with wonderful skill, holdii g the brush in his
mouth. Tlie drawing mentioned above is con
sidered his masterpiece. It will remain in
Portland for hut a short time, and is not for

Headache, nervous pains, sour stomach, dis

the human family, and have stamped their ef
fects upon us all. The most effective, gentle,

A Sioux mvm to njs Forgotten.—Ami I
lifted up rniue eyes auil beheld a great won
der. A man held a bl ush iu his right hand;
in his left a dish lillod with a strange, yea,
marvellous remedy, and the ‘perlume thereof
was like unto sweet incense. And it came to
pass that the kings of the efirtli and the
mighty men came unto him with all manner
of diseases aud were healed. And so ten thou
sand times teu thousand sick folk throughout
all tribes, people and languages under Heaven
gathered together unto him. And 1 marveled
greatly, for he healed them one by one in al
most an instant of time; aud the lame walked
and those having catarrh were cleansed, and
the smallest children and aged people wore
cured, and there was joy and great rejoicing;
and I spake unto one who was healed, saying,
“Sir, what meanetli these things?” Aud he
opened his mouth and answered thus:—“The
mau thou seest with the brush and dish is Dr.
Wolcott; ho hath occupied the place thou seest
hiui in for nearly six years. The liquid lie
holdeth is called Pain Paint; the brush in his
right hand he dippeth into (he dish and paint
e'.hover the body or limbs of the sick folk
and straightway pain leaveth them. Lo, the
Doctor will take no gold, neither silver, prec
ious stones or greenbacks, hut removeth pain,
disease aud all manner of sickness at no cost
for rich or poor, and he giveth away much
Pain Paint to physicians that they may also
test his great remedy among their sick folk,
but he requiretli each to show a diploma be
fore receiving a five dollar bottle free of cost.
Behold, men surnamed druggists, buy much
Pain Paint and sclletli it nnto those who can
not visit Dr. Wolcott, for a great crowd assem
bleth from morning even uutU late at night at
Chatham square, 170, iu tho great city of New
York; also at 87 Cornhill, Boston. And be
hold, verily, (he Dr. teacheth the people to cat
proper food, to live natural, to bo temperate,
aud to abstain from all artificial mummeries,
aud never—nay, verily, never—awatlow medi
cine in the stomach; behold he giveth good
counsel, at no cost to those who listen, and
proveth past all denial that great good l'ullow
eth the first application of Pain Paint.
—Tho famous Tyng trial has closed. Young
Tyng will undoubtedly he lound guilty ot a
technical violation of the canon which forbids
a clergyman of the Episbopal church to offi
ciate in another parish without the consent of
the rector. The defense in this case took the
ground that the word “ parish" in the canon
has no reference to territorial^mits, as it does
in England, where a parish is a well defined
political division. 4“ this country, it is con
tended, the independence ol church and state
renders such a construction ridiculous, and
that the rule, as applied to cases arising in the
United States, can only he intended to prevent
the interference of one rector witli the congre
gation of another. On Wednesday evening
Key. Dr. Tyng, father of the accused, delivered
an address on the subject of his son’s trial.
He characterized the whole proceedings as be
ing of the most undignified and absurd descrip
tion and highly injurious to the interests of
the church audits reputation in the eyes of
the people. It was, in his view, bringing a
petty, contemptible matter of personal spite
into notoriety, to the great scandal of the
church, and ought never, he thought, to have
been earned beyond tho jurisdiction of the
Bishop of the Diocese of New’ Jersey.
English Justice to the Poon. — English
courts give freqneut illustrations of impartial
ity in the administration of the law, but they
are sometimes guilty of what common sense
cannot fail to regard as very gross injustice
and cruelty. A poor widow at Exeter, with
tlnce little children, going to market to sell
three pennyworth of greens, was called on for
three halfpence toll to the market leasees. She
refused to pay it, beeanso she couldn't do it
without depriving her children of their scanty
breakfast, but she offered a penny, which was
refused. The magistrate seutenced her to
three day’s imprisonment and sent her child
ren to the workhouse! There uro too many
similar cases reported in the English journa's
for comtortable reading.—„V. Y. Timet.
Railway Tsoubleh.—An axle of the ten
der attached to the locomotive - of the train
from this city to Augusta, Saturday evening,
broke at the Cumberland -water station and
the train was delayed until another engine
could be procured from Portland, It did not
arrive in Augusta until 4 o’clock Sunday
morning.
An inward bound height train on the Grand
Trunk railway made six unsuccessful attempts
to get over the Yarmouth grade Saturday
night. The track was very slippery from ice
on the rails. The conductor of the train wait
ed until another train came along, wheu, by
the assistance of the second engine, he was
enabled to surmount the difficulty.
