Tuesday Morning, June 2, 1868. W~First Paye to-day—The Republican Press of Maine on the Impeachment % erdict; Portrait of the late Luther Jewett; the Case of Senator Ross; a False Alarm; .Cabinet Changes. Fourth Paye—Whittier to Colfax ; a “ Little Story” about Grant. The Republican Party on Itnpcncliiueni. The rumor that Mr. Wade and one or two others left a R publican caucus because they were unwilling to associate with Senators who voted for acquittal, lias been contradicted, as was to be expected. Mr. Wade, who lour years ago was so little in sympathy with the party that he refused to abide by the renomi natiou of Lincoln and lent ills influence to the ephemeral Fr.'monl ticket, is hardly the man to say now who shall or shall not be recoguized as its members. Furthermore, al though we have never questioned Mr. Wade’s right to vote on the articles of impeachment, it would certainly have been more becoming if he had resigned his claim to the succession before voting to remove the President, and we are glad to know that he has not undertaken to make an issue in the party on a question in which he had a persoual interest too plain and too great to he altogether overlooked in judging his conduct. it is now plain that no such issue would be sustained by the party if made. The national convention, meeting at Chicago in the tirst flush and heat of disappointment, refused to go larther than to express the belief of the delegates that the articles were sustained byg the law and testimony. That belief, with a verdict ol 35 to 19 to sustdiu it, the convention might well hold. That belief, we have no doubt, is held by a great majority ol the party at large to-day. It is not the unanimous opin ion of the party, as the discussions in these columns and in other papers have shown. In deed, it is stated on the authority of an asso ciate justice of the Massachusetts Supreme Court, that the Republican lawyers of the Suffolk bar are about equally divided on the question. The opinions of the people at large are probably better represented by the news papers, and the opinion Of the Republicans of Maine may be very accurately gauged by the extracts which we present this morning from the Republican press all over the State. It will be seen, on examining these extracts, that while the belief of the Chicago convention is generally re-affirmed, the im peachment trial is treated with oue mind as an incident and not an essential feature ol Republican policy, and its result as a matter of regret but not as a serious defeat. It will be seen furthermore that while in some pa pers the criticism of the dissenting Senators is passionate and severe, their right aud obli gation to form an independent opinion is as serted with equal warmth by others. It is evident therefore, as a fact which must be recognized and respected, that the articles of impeachment caunot take rank as Repub lican articles of faith. The test ot party fealty must be found elsewhere. Fidelity to the na tion’s wards at the South, respect for the na tion’s promises, these are still the cardinal principles of the Republican creed; whoever cherishes these principles is with us; whoever rejects them is against us. Our complaint against the President is that he has been un faithful to one of these principles. Our repre sentatives proceeded against him for that rea son, but they did not proceed on that ground. The technical ground on which their com plaint was based was his removal of Stanton. The difference between a legal and political proceeding is the difference between justice and expediency. A man may differ with hi party concerning the expediency of a political measure, a law, or a nomina tion, and yet yield his judgment to that of his friends with no loss of self-respect. He may properly be required to yield his preference of means to reach au end which his friends de sire as sincerely as he. Butin a judicial en quiry he is sworn to do impartial justice, and cannot yieiu ms conviction, rne responsibili ty is with him and lie must; meet it as best be may. The question which our Senators bad sworn to investigate in this spirit was the technical question presented by the House of Representatives. The difference of opinion which arose among the Republicans was to be expected of honest men; during the whole trial they divided as unbiased judges would; and it is creditable to the party that their independent action has been so generally appreciated and respected. We have just reason to complain of the Democrats both in the Senate and throughout the country for the narrow and partisan view which they have taken of this question, but the Republican party conies out ol the trial unharmed and undismayed. It has prosecuted its case to a verdict which is a moral convic tion, and has shown both in the Senate and in the country at large a moderation and self-re spect which afford the most convincing proof of its capacity and right to continue to admin ister the affairs of the nation. The Red Man.— That the Indians are not as irreducible a fraction of the American people as the negroes is due alone to the fact that they hive not so much vitality and are more remote. Every transaction with them is a most remark able affair. The latest one occurred at the Osage Council Grounds, May 27th. The Osage nation, which has gradually become a nuis ance to the white settlers of Kansas, because the latter want the good lands of the natives, sold eight million acres to the Government* and “agreed” to move to their nice new homes in Indian Territory, exercising that free and unbiassed choice in the matter which is associ ated with the name of the celebrated Mr. Hopkins. The lands pass into the hands of the Leavenworth, Lawrence & Galveston Railroad Company, and it is said that the pro jected road will now he built beyond any sort of doubt. Political Note*. It lias been discovered that a majority of the live men in the Democratic party ten years ago are now Republicans, and tlio dead men in the Republican party at that time are now shining ornaments in the Democratic parly. This could hardly have been otherwise. An active, progressive, intelligent man would suf focate among the debris ot dead issues on which the Democratic party lives. The States which have instructed their del egates to the Democratic Conven tiou to vole for Mr. Pendleton are Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, Oregon, California, and Ken tucky, and be is understood to he the first choice of Wisconsin, Minnesota, Maryland, and Tennessee. Pro-slavery notions are still lire valent in Virginia. A Richmond editor says that Mr. Collax is not in the true acceptation of the term “agentleman,” because he began life as printer! But the conservative Richmond correspondent of the New York Times says that “gentlemen or no gentlemen, Grant and Colfax will carry the State in November by a handsome vote.” An exchange says that soon after the vote on the eleventh article, Mr. Trumbull ap proached Seuator Morrill, of Maine, and re marked to him that he was pledged to vote against the second and eighth article. Where upon Mr. Morrill replied, “We have had enough of your pledges, and don’t waut any* more of them.” Nonsense. The towns of Massachusetts have begun to vote under the new law on the question of __ “license” or “no license.” On Wednesday, North Eastern voted unanimously that no li cense should be granted to any person in that town to sell liquor. The stubboruest facts that the copperheads have ever encountered are Gli nt and Colfax. The Philadelphia Press says that General Grant has announced himself in advance in tavorof the one term principle. The Great American traveller thinks Fes senden and Trumbull don’t know a good article when theyjsee it. Hon. Lewis Barker of this State was one of the speakers at the Grant and Colfax ratifica tion meeting in Washington, Friday night. The public debt statement will he ready about the fourth of June,and will not show any material reduction. Capt. Rynders, the veteran Democratic poli tician of New York, who has not been often hekrd from lately, is uow as active as ever in the New York political rings. Senator Grimes, following the example of Trumbull, lias written a letter deuyiug all the charges made with reference to bis conduct and motives in the impeaclnndht trial. Some citizens of Montgomery, Pa., believ iug that the likenesses of Chase and Fessen den on fractional currency notes do violence to the sense uf decency of the community, therefore ask that Congress shall recall all such notes aud prohibit the further issue of notes of said denomination umil the likeness es of said offensive persous are removed there from, and their places supplied by those of men enjoying the confidence of the loyal peo ple of the nation. The petition was referred to the Committee on Banking and Currency. A Washington dispatch says that the Presi dent will seud to the Senate this week the nomination of Reverdy Johnson to be Minis ter to England. The Portland and Hochealer Kailroad. The completion of this road to Alfred in the course of a lew weeks will bring a new and increasing trade from the centre of York county to the city of Portland. Alfred is the geographical centre of the county, and having been so long the shire town, the county roads have been made from all sections so as to se cure a short and easy route to this important point. The agricultural towns of Shapleigh, Sanford, Acton and Lebanon, which hereto fore have done much of their business in llos ton, will tiud the depot at Alfred so much nearer and more convenient than any oilier that we may expect from them a large amount of business. Sanford, which can boast, of the enterprising andlieautiful villages of Spriug vale and Sanford Corner, has a water power that cannot lie excelled in the State and is al ready considerably improved. These villages are but five miles distant from Alfred, and it is ten and twelve miles from either village to Wells depot. We are informed that the rail read freight of these two villages is now over $ld,000 a year. Limerick and all ol the Ossi pee towns will find a much nearer and more convenient depot at Waterboro thuu hereto fore. The law of necessity aud convenience de mands that these severa1 towns with their largo agricultural resources should meet the Portland and Rochester Railroad, either at Allred or Waterboro. The new extension passes di ectly through Hollis, Lyman aud Waterboro to the centre of Alfred. None of the remaining towns interested in the exten sion of the road are more than from 5 to 12 miles distant from either Allred or Waterboro. Wo are pleased to learn from a gentleman wlio is acquainted with the feelings and wishes of the people beyond Alfred, that there is a strong aud earnest demand for the completion of this toad. The business men of Sanford and Lebanon are especially anxious lor better means of communication with Portland. The town of Sanford at a recent town meeting voted by a majority of 1(K> votes in lavor of taking $20,000 stock in the road, lacking but a few votes of the requisite two-thirds. The interest has so much increased, with sncli a change of sentiment, that a new meeting is anticipated with no doubtful result. Lebanon, Shapleigh and Acton are ready to do some thing. Rochester has voted almost unani mously to subscribe $40,000 to the stock, and will do more if necessary. The future of this road is in good hands aud it is destined to be a great auxiliary to the fast increasing business of our city. The business of the line to Saco river has greatly increased during the past few years, aud an official ex amination shows that if the road aud rolling stock of the company had not been allowed to run down during the tedious drag of law suits and other embarrassments through which the enterprise struggled during its earlier history, a dividend would have been declared a year ago. The receipts for the last year were over $51, 000, aud a thorough examination shows that the necessary expenses of running the road embracing all the salaries, pay of workmen ordinary expenses of all kinds, in fact ai aggregate representing all that the compa ny would have been required to pay out, if the road had been in a perfect condition, would have been $24,428. The construction account of entirely new work is represented in the bal ance, so that if the road had been in good or der the company would have divided $26,572 on a capital of $560,000. The new business from the very centre of “Old York” on a finished and new extension, in connection with the improved condition oi the older section to Saco river, cannot fail tc bring new dividends to the stockholders a! well as a large amount of new business tc Portland. It is not strange therefore that there ap pears to be no opposition to the proposed change in the condition of the vote of last year, giving to the company the necessary aid of $100,000, secured by a first mortgage, and in no way increasing the risk or liability of the former vote. For the city there is much to gain and absolutely nothing to lose by the ebauge. l'X-Pri'sidcilt Itnrbuuaii. James Buchanan, fifteenth President of the United States, whose death is announced iu our telegraphic columns, was born in Frank lin county, Pennsylvania, in 1791. He was graduated with honor at Dickinson College, Carlisle, iu 1809. In the same year he com menced the study of the law at Lancaster, and was admitted to the bar in 1812, He early dis tinguished himself as a lawyer. When only 23 years of age he successfully defended, un aided by senior counsel, in the Peunsylvauia Senate, a distinguished Judge who was tried upon articles of impeachment. His practice was so large ami lucrative that at the ago of 40 he was able to retire from business. Mr.Uucliauau early entered political life, becoming a member of the Legislature of bis native State at the age of 23. In 1820 he en tered Congress, and continued to represent his district for ten years. In 1828 he was placed at the head of the Judiciary Committee, which position had previously been occupied by Daniel Webster. Iu 1831, at the close of his fifth term, he voluntarily withdrew from Con gress, and was soou after sent by President Jackson to St. Petersburg as Envoy Extraor dinary and Miuister Plenipotentiary. On bis return, iu 1833, he was elected to the U. S. Senate. His career in that body was marked by immense activity iu public affairs. Few men of that time wielded a greater influence, and his name is inseparably identified with many public measures of great importance and not a few of great utility. As Secretary of State n: der Mr. Polk he brought the north western bouudary question between England and this country to a satisfactory settlement; but was less fortunate iu liis measures for the adjustment of our difficulties with Mexico. Mr. Buchanan from the first watched with alarm the progress of the anti-slavery agita tion, and bitterly opposed it. He regarded it as a stigma on his native State that one of its members of Congress should have set in mo tion the Wilmot proviso; an I while yet in the Cabinet of Mr. Polk be wrote his “Harvest Home letter” to bis friends iu Pennsylvania, advising the extension of tho Missouri com promise line to the Pacific Ocean, but the proposition when introduced into Congress was voted down. Under Mr. I’ierce’s admin istration Mr. Buchanan was Minister to Eng land, and was one of those who met at Ostend to attempt some settlement of the delicate ne gotiations which had arisen with Spain. In 1830 he was elected to the Presidency, receiv ing 174 electoral votes from nineteen States. The history of his Presidential career is too fresh in the memory of ail to make any refer ence to it here necessary. Siuce the close of his term he has lived m retirement, occupying himself chiefly in literary labors. A work of his published last year, aud consisting of a history of political parties in the United States, Wes noticed in these columns at the time of its appearance. Marshall's Grant.—It has been for some time known to the public that Mr. William E. Marshall, whose engraved portraits of Wash ington and Lincoln have elicited such univer sal admiration, was engaged upon a similar portrait of General Grant. This work is now completed, and the engraving is published by Ticknor & Fields of Boston. In size and style it is a companion to the Lincoln. Cf its ex ecution it is scarcely possible to speak in terms of too high praise. The challenge to “match him,” so boldly put forth at Chicago, may safe ly be uttered in reteience to this picture. It is not merely matchless, but it is so incompara bly superior to all the other portraits of Grant that we know of none which can even be named as second to it. The engraving is made from Mr. Marshall’s own painting, executed by him at the head quarters of the General, at Washington, where he had every facility extended to him for thor oughly studying his subject As a portrait it differs widely from any other representation ot the original now before the public, but the likeness is eminently satisfactory to the fami ly and intimate friends of the General. Mr. Marshall’s idea of wliat a true portrait should represent is embodied in the following extract from a letter of his to the publishers: It is a characteristic of really great men, that they impress by their personalities, vari ous persons in very different ways; and it may be said of General Grant that there as many different ideas respecting his general appear ance as there are various opinions respecting him. I have had the pleasure of studying him well, not only from a professional point ol view, but in ordinary intercourse; and within the limits ol my profession I have endeavored to represent him as I found him. It was my privilege to know him and observe him, at a time when he was quietly performing many of tuose services which it has since become neces sary for him publicly to avow; and I felt in the execution of my undertaking that nothing less was demanded cf me than to represent truly the features ol his countenance, and at the same time to give expression to those traits of character which belong to the man behind them. Such lias been the artist’s endeavor, and the result of bis labors will greatly assist in tho forming of a true concep tion of one to whom tho country is turn ing as to its future Chief Magistrate. As a Work of art the picture is most admirable. Every line is druwn with rare firmuess, truth i and delicacy, aud the face stands out with a wonderfully life-like distinctness. The en- ' graving is sold only by subscription, and the price at which it is offered is very low. Agents are wanted to canvass for it in every town. Memorial (’clebratiou in llorham. Although the weather was unfavorable the relatives and friend* of deceased soldiers of Gorham, at three o’clock on Saturday after noon, visited the cemetery in that village, and deposited flowers and wreaths upon their graves. Prayer was offered by Rev. Howard Abbott, and the silent offer" ngs of many an aching heart, symbolized by such memorials as the sweet spring timo furnishes, rendered the occasion impressive. The bells of the vil lege were tolled at intervals during the day and flags were displayed at half mast. At six o’clock the returned soldieos of Post No. 22, G. A. R., under command of Capt. John Sum mersides, proceeded to the soldiers’ monument. The monument was beautifully decorated with garlands of evergreens and flowers under the direction of Mrs. E. W. Jackson, Miss M. Hinckley, and other ladies, who did not need to be reminded that peace has its work of pat riotic duty, as well as war. mere was a large gathering of citizens pres ent at the monument, and suitable out-door exercises were duly announced by Capt. Sum mersides. Prayer was offered by Chaplain E. W. Jackson, aud addresses were made by Rev. C. C. Parker aud Col. Frederic Robie. Sever al pieces of music were admirably sung at proper intervals, by a select company of ladies aud gentlemen uuder the direction of Mr_ Leonard Parkhurst, which added much to the interest of the occasion. The returned soldiers saluted the monument and deposited ever greens and dowers at the base, in remembrance of fitty-six of their deceased comrades, nearly all of whom occupy unknown graves on dis tant battle-fields. It is a historic fact that Captains Fogg, Lowell, Phillips, Shaw, and Lieut. Edwards, who composed the entire list of commissioned officers, whose names are in scribed on the monument, were each killed in battle. Benediction was pronounced by Rev. Howard Abbott and the interesting and im pressive ceremonies of the day were closed. News Items.—Ex-Governor Lincoln of Mas sachusetts will be buried at Worcester to-day. The Masons of Springfield, Mass., propose to observe St. John’s day on the 24th inst. with appropriate ceremonies. President Johnson has written a note dueling to be present. The students of Trinity College, Coun ,have adopted the Oxford “mortar board” cap. Now let them “adopt” the tails of the negro chief's of Central America and bo men. Justice has been vindicated in New York by the execution of the half-witted Brown, the “child murderer.” Gen. Cole would probably be bung if bo were only a little more insane. The murder of the wealthy old bachelor, Cornelius Holmes, at Kingston, Mass., is cre ating intense excitement in that part of the Slate. Andrews, who has been arrested on suspicion, was the murdered mau’s most inti mate and trusted frieud, belonged to one of the oldest families in Plymouth county, and had hitherto been highly esteemed by his neighbors. Audrews waived examination aud has been committed to jail. The Pohti.and Business Directory for 1868, which we briefly noticed some days agoi contains nearly 390 pages, and is really a busi ness man’s guide. Besides the directory prop er, it contains much valuable information for merchants aud business men, aud a large amount of miscellaneous matter of interest to the general reader. We notice particularly “The Great Fire,” “Reconstruction,” “Port 1 land aud Portland Enterprise,” “Eastern 1 Maine,” “The Aroostook,” “Railroad and Steamboat Enterprise in Maine,” and “Trade aud Commerce of Portland,” as articles ol especial interest. We cheerfully commend the work to the patronage of our business men aud the public generally. Published by Atwell & Co., 174 Middle street.

Appreciative.—Disinterested observers do not hesitate to express the opinion that Port land acted wisely on Wednesday last in vot ing to take stock in (be Portland & Ogdens burg railroad. The Gardiner Reporter speak ing of the action of the city in this matter, says: “All honor to the Forest City for this new manifestation of spunk. Her merchants aud business men are public spirited enough to grasp every opportuuity to improve the bus iness of their city. They deserve success, and will win it, too!” Boat Race.—A match was made in New York oj Thursday between Walter Browu, of this city, and Johu Tyler, of Bostou, to row two races for $1000 a side each race. The first to be a three mile raco over the Sckuykill course at Philadelphia, on the 18th of June, and the second to be a two mile straight away race off the Elysian Fields at Hoboken on June 24tli. Drowned.—Willie, youngest son of W. G. Orne, Esq., of North Yarmouth, was drowned on Wednesday afternoon, May 20th, iu conse quence of the upsettiug of a boat in which he aud another lad were attempting to cross Royal’s river. His body was recovered in about four hours. He was an active aud in teresting boy, about eight years of age. Personal.—Hon. E. B. Washourne of Illi nois left Washington, yesterday, according to a dispatch from that city, to be absent a week or ten days in order to bring his family to this State, where they will spend the summer. Senator Sumner says that the practice of spelling Alaska, “Aliaska,” is incorrect. Who will settle the practice in regard to the first word in the Kuklux Klan? State News. ANDROSCOGGIN COUNTY. Republican caucuses to elect delegates to the 2d Congressional Convention were held on Saturday in Auburn, Webster, Wales aud Durham. Auburn elected delegates in favor of W. P.Frye, and Webster, Wales and Dur ham delegates in favor of N. Dingley, jr. The first child born of European parents iu what is now Lewiston was Abigail Varnum, daughter of Asa and Abigail Varnum, born Sept. 19,1773. AROOSTOOK COUNTY. The Houlton Times says that Mr. C. H. Fer naldjPrineiple of Houlton academy, will be engaged during the summer in making geolog ical examinations in different parts of the county, his services for that "purpose having been secured by Professor Hall, formerly State Geologist of New York. Mr. Fernald intends soon to visit Portage Lake, where specimens of fossiliferous deposits are said to have been discovered some years ago. Iu many places in that county minerals more or less valuable abound, which offer a good field tor investigation of the geologist. CUMBERLAND COUNTY. “On a Time." Verily, oil a time, was the Sophomore class, on Wednesday,—out in two liay carts—each drawn l>y four horses—in pur suit ot a tree, to be planted on the college grounds. The young blades made more “rack et” than Japhet in search of his lost daddy, and tooted, and drummed, and horned, and flowed flags, waking up even the very echoes of our well to do streets. The little boys ran, and stood gasping with delight at the magnifi cent display, dumb before such a manifesta tion of wind, as was evolved from those mon strous horns. If the college boys did not enjoy themselves, it was all their own fault, for they had it all their own way.—Telegraph. KENNEBEC COUNTY. The Gardiner Reporter learns that J. C. Harward, a well-known citizen of Richmond, left his home on Monday last, since which time his whereabouts cannot be ascertained by his family and friends. A person answer ing to his description was traced to the United States Hotel >n Boston, where he took break fast the following morning, but here all clue is lost. Capt. H. is a man of some 60 years of age, and was never subject to any mental de rangement. SOMERSET COlfttTY. The Skowhegan Reporter is informed that Mr. Lorenzo Witham of West Pittsfield, at tempted to commit suicide by hauging himself in his barn on Wednesday the 20th, but was rescued before life was extinct. PENOBSCOT COUNTY. We learn from the Bangor Whig that Fath er Atwell, a preacher in the Methodist Epis copal Church for more than fifty years, died in Orono on Saturday morning, at the age of 80. He is well known throughout that section of this Slate. The Whig understands that a drunken fra cas occurred on Hancock Street, Bangor, about two o’clock on Suuday maruiug, during which Patrick McHugh was stabbed by John Hafi'erty in seven places, the cuts beiug made the side, back and abdomen. It is thought his chances for recovery or death are about even. Hnfferty had not been arrested. The Whig of Monday says we are informed by Conductor Swan, that a young man named Smith, about 19 years of age, was drowned at the mills on Friday. He was subject to fits, and while down back of the mill for some pur pose, it is supposed he was taken in one and fell in. His body was recovered. YORK COUNTY A correspondent of the Saco Courier, writ ing from York, says that village was the first city in America, and flourished for years under the magnificent patronage of Fernando Gorges. Her officers were a Mayor, twelve Aldermen, twenty-four Councillors and a Recorder. The place was called Georgiana, and, as Bancroft says, “became as good a city as seals and parch ment, a chancery court and court leet, ser geants and while rods can make of a petty town of less than three hundred inhabitants." But owing to the misfortunes of Gorges the town lost its rights as a city alter a career of ten years, and became simply York, twenty | years before Boston was thought of. Portland dad Vicinity.

Our Superior Court.—The May term of the Superior Court adjourned yesterday af ternoon, after a session of twenty days—ten with a jury and ten without—during which 121 cases were disposed of finally. The whole number of actions on the docket was 22C, of which 69 were transferred this term from‘he Supreme Court; 105 actions are continued to the September term, of which 23 are to be de faulted on the first day and 77 are for trial 28 being for the jury and 49 for the justice. During the April term 74 actions were dispos ed of. Thus far 1311 actions have been trans ferred from the Supreme Court and 172 origi nal entries. The next term will commence Tuesday, September 1st, with a new jury. Yatghino.—A meeting of the yatohing fra ternity was held last evening at the office of Mr. W. W. Thomas, Jr. Judge Goddard was appointed Chairman and John A. Emery, Sec retary. It was decided that the yachts should start for Boothbay on Thursday, 11th inst., leaving Custom House wharf at 10 o’clock A. M. Capt.A. M. Smith, of yacht “Ray,” was appointed Commodore, and Capt. Benj. J. Willard, of yacht “Nettle,” Vice Commodore. It was decided to take the inside route as far as practicable, and till yachts to enter Booth bay together. All Portland yachts are invited to join the expedition. The Weather.—The disagreeable weather seems to have left us at last, and we have had now two pleasant days since it rained a drop. Sunday, although cloudy in the morning, was one of the pleasantest days we ever experienc ed. The sun came out about 8 o’clock in the morning, and a greater contrast with the weath er of the previous three weeks was never pre sented. Everything seemed to spring into new life. The birds sang beautifully, showing that they appreciated the great change, and you could almost see the leaves increase in size. Sale of Stable Property.—Mr. Charles A. Gilson, who for sixteen years has been pro prietor of the largo livery stable in Market Square, yesterday sold his entire property and business to Messrs. II. S. Clay aud George FT. Raymond of Westbrook. Many will regret the sale of this property by Mr. Gilson, as he has always been a very accommodating and obliging man, but his successors have had con siderable experience in the business, and if they prove to bo as pleasant and agreeable to all as has been Mr. Gilson, they can but meet with success. Election of Officers.—At the meeting of the Portland Light infantry, last evening, the following officers were elected:—Gen. C. P. Mattocks, Captain; Lieut. Frank G. Patter son, 1st Lieutenant; Charles H. Scott, 2d Lieutenant; George Webster, 3d Lieutenant A. D. Reeves, 4th Lieutenant; S. C. Goddard, Sergeant. Major E. B. Houghton presided, and the meeting passed oft very pleasantly. Further arrangements were made for the excursion to the islauds next Saturday, June 6th. Big Trout.—We had exhibited to us yester day a trout, caught in Sliapleigh, by Mr. Sew all Lord of Boss Corner, that was twenty inches in length at the time he was taken from the water, and which weighed three pounds before he was dressed. He was a noble fellow, and had the power, even in death, to make the sportsman’s desire to £rasp the rod and throw the tty very strong. Death of Miss Osgood.—Miss Annie G. Os good, of whom we spoke yesterday, was buried Sunday afternoon, decomposition having set in. Her death was sudden, but no more so than was that of her brother, Major T. K. Os good, of Bocklaud, who died sitting upright on the lounge in his office, in June, 1865. Her age was 35 years. Success in a Good Cause.—The Treasurer of the Female Orphan Asylum acknowledges the receipt of one hundred and fifty-four dol lars and eighty cents from the Portlaud Dra matic Cluh, the result of their recent efforts in behalf of this Institution. Musical.—The choir of the State Street Church has been re-organized, and now con sists of Mr. and Mrs. O. W. Burnham, Miss Wing and Mr. J. B Hudson, Jr. UusiucisM Items;. Interesting to Agriculturalists. Among the new enterprises now seeking establishment in our city—all of which as a matter of local growth and pride should he en couraged hy every citizen. We note with in terest the New England General Agency of Croasdale’s 3uper-Phosphate which has re cently been located here under the manage" ment of Samuel H. Bobbins Esq., who has his office at No. 151 Commercial street. The establishment manufacturing this val uable fertilizer is au immense affair situated in the suburbs of the Philadelphia and is own ed and operated by one of the wealthiest and most respoussble houses of that city, Messrs Wattson & Clark. It is not a temporary ar rangement, but an establishe J and progressive institution, intended to meet and supply the rapidly increasing demands of those Agricul turalists who believe that science may be made to contribute to the growth of crops and the fertility of otherwise unfruitful soil in like manner as she has given birth to progress in all other departments of activity. These man ufacturers import for themselves all foreign materials composing the Super-Phosphate and the largest ships coming to their wharves discharge their cargoes directly into the exten sive manufactory. The services of Prof. J. C. Booth, chem ist of the United States mint and one of the ablest chemists iu the country, are permanently secured to the establishment, and not a barrel of the Phosphate is allowed to go into the market until it has been tested and brought to the standard. We have said this much to assure our friends iu the farming districts that this house aud the article they manufacture are entitled to the highest confidence on their own merits. But beside this, and, if possible, more satisfac tory, we have the concurrent testimony of a large number of most thrfty and responsible farmers iu our immediate vicinity and in all sections of the country as to the great value of the article in question, by which it appears that pasture lands, grass fields, acres planted with corn, grain, vegetables, hops, and even fruit trees, rose-bushes and flowers all alike have with scarcely an exception, richly responded to its application, returning to the purchaser the first year an increase on the average crop equal to at least zuu per cent, on tue outlay.— By its influence t'ue maturity of crops is hast ened and the amount produced is not only larger, hut richer in quality. The amount sold in New England thus far this year, is fifteen times greater than during the whole ot last year, and those farmers who have used it are now i^s largest purchasers and best advocates, which cannot be so truly said of any artificial fertilizer ever before offered to the public. The increased production of the soil is a matter oi universal interest to city as well as country, and in the belief that Croasdale’s Su per Phosphate is a valuable and substantial help to this result, we commend its use to farmers throughout the State. The present season being late an admirable opportunity is given to test its qualities. Mr. Bobbins, the New England Agent, is a gentleman of wide intelligence in all agri cultural matters, and will always be found ready to furnish llul information as to the methods and results of applying the Phos phate on different kinds of soil and to the va rious crops to all who may address him in per son or by letter, aud will promptly fill all or ders. 300 pounds being sufficient for an acre of gras -, grain or vegetables, if the soil is not extremely sterile. Looking to the public good, wo trust that those farmers throughout our State who make use of this concentrated fertilizer will note and report the results, that confidence may be established in its merits, and thus it3 adoption by all who cultivate the land became more general from year to year, till science shall reveal, if possible, something even better than this, which, as we believe, is now without a rival as a coaxer of the soil. “They made her a grave too cold and damp For a soul so honest and true."

Medical Department, R. R. R office, l No. 87 Maiden Lane, New York. ( Dear Doctor: We are compelled to answer your inquiries relative to the curative properties o SARSAPARILLIAN anti its associates as constituents in our Renovat ing Resolvent in Lungatfections, and its wonder ful power in arresting waste and decay of the lungs, healing Ulcers, loosenening the phlegm, and en abling the patient to expectorate freely the thick sloughing matter deposited in the air passages and cells ot Lungs Bronchi, and at the same time keeping up the genoral strength of the patient, re pairing the waste wiln good sound and healthy mate rial, Imparting nourishment as well as purification ot tlie blood,—through the medium of the press:— that hundreds of others daily writing us for informa tion may know t-at we have a remedy in the RE SOLVENT that will arrest the progress of Consump tian, either of the Lungs, Liver, Kidneys, or Bowels. The Resolvfnt is a compensating remedy; it communicates its curative powers through the blood, sweat and urine; it restores functional harmony and enables each secreting organ to secrete its proper con stituents. Direct remedies, as Lung Balsalms, Cough Syrups, Pectorals given to act directly on the Lungs, as a regular remedy, are hurtful, as they augment tlie ftmetions of the Lungs at exi ense of suspending oi in teriupting Junctions of the Liver, Kidneys andSkin. If a patient suffering with a severe cough, w ith a sense oT suffocation or weight in the chest, irritation or soreness in the throat, pain in the shoulders, diffi culty of raising or expectorating phlegm, dryn* ss of the skin, or it there is constipation of the bowels,un natural appetite, great thirst, or if the water dis charged deposits substances like the while ot an egg, or brick dust, or tnread-like skeins, or it there is pain in -the small of the back, hips, stomach or bowels, cliesf, etc , from a dessert to a table-spoonful of Re solvent, half an hour after each meal, and if the cough is troublesome one table-spoonful at night, •will afford immediate ease, and will soou remo\e all unpleasant symptoms. As aids to the Resolvent, it pain is present, the spine should be ruboed with the Ready Relief, aud one to four of Rad way’s'Pills (coated) to insure per fect digestion and regular evacuations from the bow els. The nourishing properties of Radway’s Reno vating Resolvent increase th • strength and flesh ot the patient. We do not claim that this remedy will make new lungs, new kidneys, or other wasted organs, but it will arrest decay, he il ulcers, and sup ply ihe waste that is daily passing off, with new, sound and healthy material. Dr. Radway can be c 'nsultoo, free of charge, from 12 to 2 p m, at No. 97 luaiaen uan«< The public have but a faint idea ot tho great im portance of RADWA.Y'8Rif solvent .in'the treatment ot chronic disease and disease of the Kidneys and urinary organs. Sarsaparillian and Pare!ra Brava, two of its ingredients are prepared by Dr. Railway's process, supplies a want that has ever existed, in re pairing the waste of the body with pure aud healthy material out ot new rich blood, of arr« sting disso lution and decay, ot restoring functional harmony, of securing strength, of dissolv.ng calculous con cretions, of curing every form of Kidney, Bladder, and Uterine diseases; oi stopping all kinds of weak ening, purulent, and irritating discharges; oi restor ing the vigor of life, to alt, whether induced by s if abuse, impure association, bad babit of system, ex posure or accident. As the Renovating Resolvent Mursnpn rillian enters imincdiat ly into the circulation, it commences its work of purification and expulsion of acrimonious humors from the blood at once. Skin eruptions, Blotches, Pustules, Tetters, Worms and Insects, Black Spots, etc, are removed by a lew doses, aud the skin changed to a clear and beautiful ap pearance. — This remedy is superior to all preparations of Bu chu, Cubebs, Juniper, etc, in Diab te*, Catarrh of the Bladder, Gravel, Brick-Dusl s and other morbid state of the Urine. The Renovating Resolvent does not augment the the functional seeretions of one or gan by suspending (he secretions ot others.
