At twilight I think of my home.
Anil in darkness 1 ponder alone,

As I left them in LoyhooU’s bright dream.
VVhcnl wandered so careless and ire**;
With never a wave on the sea
Where I floated in sunshine and gleam.
The sunshine and gleam are no more;
The Storm King has ruffled the sea ;
I list to the hurricane’s roar.
And the breaking of waves upon shore;
But no liaveu of rest can i see.
New England! 1 long lor thy hills;
For thy woods ami thy uplands so green ;
For thy brooks and thy murmuring rills;
For thy hold rugged landscape, that fills
And entrances the soul like a dream!

[A correspondent sends, us the following,
which he thinks a good illustration ol the
difference between science and TOmnton
sense ]
A friend of ours, now a major, ai.d whom
we will designate by that title, w.s,previous
to the war, engaged with a party of engineers
in surveying a route for a proposed railroad
in the State of Iowa. At night they were
accustomed to stop at Lite farm bouses where
they chanced to he. One n.'ghl, while at one
of the houses, aud just hefoie they were
ready to retire, the host came rushing in much
agitated, and said that his heifer had fallen
into the well. It seems that they had been
digging a well, which was about fifteen feet
dowm ami had covered it over with boards,
aud the heifer in walking over had gone
down through.
The whole party went out with their
lanterns to help get the “critter” out, and, of
course, the chief engineer, who was a scienti
fic man, took charge of the job. He ordered
a large pole to be brought, by which they
measured the depth of the well, aud then lie
and his assistant went into the barn to make
a calculation as to bow tar from tlie well they
would have to begin to dig a trench in order
to get a proper inclination, so that the ‘ crit
ter” could walk out to the surtace. Above
the well was arranged a horizontal windlass,
turned by cranks, which was used to raise the
earth out of the w?ll.
As soon as the man ol scieuee had gone
into the barn, the thought struck the practi
cal Major that they might tie a nope round
the heifer’s neck and hoist her out before the
engineer got through w ith his calculations.
The Major suggested the plan to tire old
man, who seemed to he rather taken with
the idea. So, procuring a rope, he went down
nto the well according to the Major’s direc
tions, to tie it round the animal's neck.
“ What kind ol a knot shall I tie?” said the
olu mau.
“ Any kind you please—a slip noose if you
like,” replied the Major. '• We will get her
out belore she chokes, auv way; only place
the knot under the jaw.”
So the old man adjusted the rope aud came
up. They began to turn the windlass and
the heifer was very soon brought to the sur
tace and swung off on the ground. They
all thought she was dead at first, bat trying
one leg alter another aud finding all right,
she got up and walked otT as if nothing had
happened. In a few minutes out came the
man of figures witli his calculations all com
“ Get your spades," said lie; ‘‘we have got
to begin so many ieet h orn the weii f o dig the
But a lew minutes only hml elapsed when
the whole crowd broke out into a hearty
laugh, and the mystery was made known to
the engineer.
“ That,” said the Major, is what I call com
mon sense against science.”
The engineer got so angry about the matter
that he did not speak to the Major for several
weeks. Constant Reader.

Notices of the Press.
[From tli Round Table, Now fork, July, 1867.]
The Portland Press evinces a commendable ener
gy in collating tacts perlain!ng to the commercial,
ina»ula« turmg ar.d agiicultural life ot its State. Its
editorial opinions are also expressed with-unusual
weight, and ii is the only provincial journal in the
country that pays a ay considerable attention to Ca
nadian events.
[From the Waterville Mail, Oct. 25.]
The proprietors of the Press arc snaring no ex
pense in strengthening their editorial force, and in
improving their p.ij*er in every department. A first
class daily may now be found without going out of
the State.
[From the Augusta Standard, Sept. 20, 1867.]
The Portland Evening Star is conducted with
far more manliness, dignity and honesty, than any
other Republican paper in the State. It presents Its
views with marked ability and defends them with a
zeal that betokens sincerity, but scorns to descend
to personal abuse, slander and vilification of political
opponents. Its course in this respect is in marked
contrast with that of the Press, published in the
same city.
[From the Machias Republican, Oct. 24.]
We learn, not for the first time, however, from a
letter in the Bangor Whig and Courier, that Mr.
George Gifford, a young August a lawyer, lias accept
ed a situation on the editorial staff ot the Portland
Press. Mr. Gilford has been some time in that situ
ation, and lias done some good service, and is capa
ble of doing much more. Mr, G. is an earnest and
l devoted student, and will be an acquisition to the
editorial corps ot Maine.
[From the Gardiner Home Journal. Jan. 1.]
The Portland Daily Press enteis on the new
year with a full and able corps ot edito s, and with
a determination on the part ot the publishers, to
make it meiit the large patronage it is receiving.
Our merchants should consult their interests and
take it instead of supporting the Boston dailies en
[From the Lewiston Journal, Jan. 3.]
For the execellent synopsis ot Legislative reports
which will appear in our first edition during the
Maine Legislative session, we are indebted to the
Portland Press, which, with commendable enter
prise, receives its report in special despatches irom
the capital.
I Freni the Kennebec Reporter, Jan. 4. ]
The Portland Daily PhkbsIs not only a credit
to the citv but aLo to the State. It is now as large
as most of the Boston dailies and in point of ability it
deserves a high rank. Its editorials are not olten dull,
but usually have a fresh and sparkling style not com
mon in our daily exchanges. The Press also lias
the lull telegraphic dispatches ot the Associated
Pres9, and regular correspondence from Washington
Now Y.irk, and the principal cities of our own State.
During the session of (lie legislature It will have spe
cial dispatches every night,containing the substance
ot the day’s proceedings. Any movement that looks
to the ma'enal growth of the State always finds in
• he P>ess a hearty advocate. It should have a large
list in nil the prominent places of Maine.
For those who desire a family paper the weekly
edition ot the Press has much to commend it. Be
sides the carefully selected nevs of the week, and
po itical matter, it lias readable stories and choice
miscellany, attractive to the family circle.
li'rom tno iiatn i lines, Jan. 4.]
It gives ns pleasure to note the enterprise and en
ergy ot our friends <f the Portland Press in the edi
torial and news departments of that paper. No pa
per ill the Slate l* more tully up with the times than
is the Press.
[From the Ellsworth American, Jan. 10.]
The Portland Daily Press is one of the largest
sized journals, is ably conducted, lias regular corres
pondents in the principal cities in the State, in ad
dition toils special dispatches and regular corres
pondenta in New York, Washington, &c. We do
not see why our citizens who want a large sized, po
litical and commercial daily newspaper (jo not take
the Pr> ss rather than the Boston Journal. The
Press is every way the better paper tor Maine read
[From the Ifallowell Cazette, Jan. 11.]
The Portland Daily Press.—This sterling
journal has for Maine readers the advantages which
belong to a paper representing Maine interests, and
it presents a summary of ti e current history ol the
world. The reports of the proceedings of Congress
are given at length, and the regular correspondents
at Washington and New York, the political and
commercial capitals ot the country, have tor a long

Pacific Railroad
The Best and Principal Portion of the

is being rapidly carried forward by an unprecedent
ed working lorce; and it is reasonably certain that
the continuous overland Ka'lroad connection from
New York to San Francisco will be made in 1870.
The United States Government furnishes, upon a
subordinate and contingent lien, half the means for
constructing the Main Steam Line; and besides an
absolute grant of 12 800 acres of valuable public lands
per mile, the Central Pacific Railroad Company have
received from California sources,donations and con
cessions worth more than $3,009,600. The availa
ble resources cf this company are therefore abund
ant for the purpose, amounting to $77,000,000, on the
first 726 miles ot the Line, including Loans securod
by a First Mortgage upon flio whole property, to the
same amount only as the U. S. Subsidy Bonds.
The results already attained, although under com
paratively unfavorable circumstances, afford sub
stantial ground for believing the CENTRAL PA
CIFIC to be the
in out Favored, Productive* nnd Valuable
Railroad Luterprine iu Hie t’ountry.
In consequence ot the large and rapidly increasing
demand, the price ot these Bonds has been advanc
ed, and the Company arc now ofiering for sale, a
limited amount of their
t'irst Mortgage Six Per Cent. Bonds
Principal and Interest Payable in Gold Coin,
in sains of $1,000 each, at par and accrued interest
from January 1st, in currency.
These Bonds, it is believed, possess the elements ot
safety, reliability and profit ina greater degree, than
any other class ot Corporate Securities now offered,
and are therefore very desirable lor steady invest
ments of surx>lus capital.
Investors will bear in mind the following advan
tages :
I. They are the first, mortgage on one ot the most
valuable and productive l ues of railroad in the
II. The actual earnings from local business in 18G7
were moie than four times the annual Interest en
III. The hard part of the work is now done, and
the prospects of rapid completion are favorable. J
IV. 1 be Company have liberal subsidies, which
enable them to prosecute the work with great vigor.
V. The management has been exceedingly pru
dent and frugal.
VI. There is already a large and growing settle- \
went on the completed and graded line.
VII. The lands promise to he of immense value,
37,038 acres having been already sold.
VIII. Both principal and interest are explicitly
made payable in gold coin.
IX. Both the aggregate amount of issue and their
standing in Europe will insure for them continued
activity and a high rank among standard securities.
At this time they yield nearly
Niue Pei* Ccnt.npon the f u vestment.
Holders of Government Securities have an oppor
tunity of exchanging them for Central Pacific Bonds
bearing an equal rite ofintorest, with the principal
abundantly secured, and of realizing a profit ot from
ten to fifteen per cent- in addition.
