BY TELEGRAPH TO THE PORTLAND DAILY PRESS. ___ Tuesday Moraine, June 9, 1868, ----— MAINE. [Special Dispatch to the Daily Frees.] postponement of match game of base ball. Winthrop, June-8.—The Pine Trees and Pennessewassecs will not play the match June 9th. W. H. Van Colt, WASHINGTON. THE PUBLIC DEBT.

EXCITEMENT AT THE FORMATION OF THE NEW CITY GOVERNMENT. Much excitement was caused to-day on the occasion of the lormiug of the new city gov ernment, certificates of election having been given to the Republicans and the retiring Mayor having given certificates to the Con servatives. Two equally divided bodies met in the Aidermanic chamber, and each having elected a presiding officer, much confusion fol lowed. The presence of a strong police force alone prevented violence. A Republican mem ber ot the committee appointed to canvass votes, announced the election of Sayles J. Bowen by 83 votes. This was persistently de nied by the opposition. Mr. Bowen appeared and was sworn in office by a justice of the peace. When Bowen went to the Mayor’s of fice, he found the place locked, and acting un der legal advice, seut *a force of locksmiths, who opened the doors, and he has now full possession. The conservative members of the Board of Aldermen have entered on the journal a pro test against what they characterize the illegal proceedings of the minority of the joint con vention in declaring Sayles J. Bowen Mayor elect. They also protest against two colored men as members from the first Ward, as none but white male citizens they say are eligible to seats in the Council. The Republicans, al though not united in the protest, are equally emphatic in asserting the correctness of their own course. It is not yet known how the mu nicipal troubles will be adjusted. RESIGNATION OF COLLECTOR ROLLINS. Thi Commissioner of Internal Revenue, Mr. Rollins, has written a letter to the Secretary of the Treasury, resigning his position, the resignation to take effect on the confirmation of his successor. CONFESSION OF WOOLLEY. Tlie petition of Chas. W. Woolley, which was not read in the House to-day, recites the facts of his interrogation and imprisonment, and states that being relieved from his obliga gation of secrecy by the testimony of his client, Sheridan Shook, on Saturday last before the committee, he respectfully submits the follow ing answers to the first questionThat he did send the dispatch of the 8th of May in said question referred to, designing thereby to re quest the said Shook to place to his credit with Messrs. Gillis, Harvey & Co. the sum of $10,000, to be used in such lawful manner as your petitioner might deem proper in obtain ing a modification of the provision of the rev enue law, whereby the amount paid the in former upon seizures is granted up to $0000, but is not allowed to exceed that amount. The modification contemplated was an amendment providing that in all cases the entire extent of the value of a moiety should be paid to the in former and a moiety to the Government. And the language in said dispatch, “my business is accomplished,” referred to the progress of the business and to the fact that your petitioner had ascertained the seutiment of the commit tee and they were then ready to report the bill, though not in the desired shape. For the second question, that lie did send the dispatch of the 12th of May, therein referred to, to the said Shook, and that it had reference to an un dertaking of your petitioner to obtain a reduc tion of the tax on whiskey, in regard to which the said Shook was interested, and which hail been the subject of a general conver sation between said Shook and your pe tioner, without having arrived at auy understanding as to the proceeding therein. But your petitioner believed he would be willing to aid in the prosecution of a measure legally to his interest, and as to the use of fic titious names and the absence of specific ex pressions in said telegrams, your petitioner says such precautions are absolutely necessary in communicating by telegraph, in order to avoid the disclosure of private affairs to those who are seeking their discovery. He believes that the matters above referred to were suf ficiently understood between him and Shook to have enabled him to understand and intel igibly apply each communication to its appro priate subject, but that the said Shook did nut, so far as your petitioner is informed, act uphn said telegrams or either of them, by making the deposits or furnishing the money they called lor; and your petitioner further avers and asserts that the telegrams had no refer ence to any other subject than as hereinbefore set forth, and no reference to the trial of the President on the articles of impeachment pre ferred by the House of Representatives against him, nor any allusion thereto whatever. Woolley also accounts for the disposition of the $20,000. Part, he says, was spent on his private business, part on the business of his client, and part was handed to Ran om Van Valkenburg of New York at a convivial par ty, witness believing at the time he was giving it to Mr. Shook. He denies any disrespect to the House or to the managers, and flies an af fidavit from Ransom Van Valkenburg, Robert Strong, Cornelius Wendell and Charles H. Shelley, fully setting forth the disposal of the money. XLth OuNGEEBS—Second Session. SENATE. Washington, June 8.—Mr. Van Winkle, from tbe Committee on Pensions, reported ad versely on the hill declaring that marriage shall not work tbe forfeiture of a widow’s pen sion. At the expiration of the morning hour the President announced as the special order the bill to admit North and South Carolina, Georgia, Louisiana and Florida. Messrs. Vickers and Saulsbury spoke against the bill, denying that Congress had any power to impose conditions upon the admission of States. Mr. Morton warned tbe last speakers not to commit themselves in the matter of negro suf frage, as on the 4th of J uly next the prospect is that they will be placed on the platform of universal snffrage and universal amnesty. (Laughter.) Mr Nye suggested perhaps they would keep off the platform while the cars were in motion. Mr. Morton, after some remarks, gave notice that when it is in order he will move to insist ou additional provisions: 1st, making it the duty of officers commanding the district fo al low officers elected under new Constitutions to be installed within 120 days after the elec tion, and to protect them in the discharge of their duties, said officers to be deemed pro visional only and subject to United States au thority until the provisions of tbw act are complied with; 2d, providing that in case any person shall be elected to office who would hie disqualified under the Constitution when adopted, the person receiving the next highest number of votes be entitled to discharge the duties till a new election is held under the Srevisions of the Constitution of the State. ic explained that the first provision is in tended to meet the case of Gen. Buchanan’s action in regard to the chairman of the Louis iana Board of Registration. The second was to render ineligible new officers elected who would become ineligible as soon as the 14th article became a part of the Constitution. Mr. Doolittle asked leave to have read a me morial signed by Henry R. Austin, on behalf of a large number of citizens of Louisiana. [Note—Mr. Austin is editor of a Demo cratic weekly journal in Washington devoted to the interests of working men.] Objections were made by Messrs. Conness and Williams, and the Senate refused to re ceive the paper—29 to 21. A vote on Mr. Wilson’s amendment was urged. Mr. Trumbull rose to reply to some, points made in the debate. He called attention to tbe fact that the law was different at the time of the vote on the Alabama Constitution, and that its terms were not complied with by the people of Alabama. He claimed that every other State had cast more votes in favor of its Constitution than did Alabama, which State having 170,000 votes registered, cast but 69,000 in favor of it, more than 100,000 staying away from the polls. Mr. Sherman urged the necessity of admit ting Alabama, claiming that she Btands as etroug if not stronger in favor of reconstruc tion than any otb#r State save South Caro- I lina. Mr. Stewart took the same view, claiming she is fairly entitled to admission. During the discussion, the signing of the bill to admit Arkansas was announced by the chair. Mr. Hendricks moved to adjourn. The chair laid before the Senate a commu nication from the President, transmitting a communication lrom the Postmaster General, in reply to a resolution of enquiry for copies of the cotrespondence in reference to the uew ¥ostal treaty. Referred to tbe Committee on 'ostoffice. Adjourned. HOUSE. The following bills and joint resolutions were introduced, which were read twice and appro priately referred:-By Mr. Miller, requesting the Judiciary Committee to inquire as to the cau-e of delay in the trial of Davis, and to re port whether any legislation is necessary to rnsure a speedy trial; by Mr. Upson, making an appropriation for the payment of a reward offered hy the President in April, 18l>5, for the capture of Jeff. Davis; hy Mr. Beaman, to regulate trade on the Northern frontier; by Mr. Lougbridge, to extend the homestead laws to the minor children of deceased soldiers; by Mr Paine, to provide for the inauguration ot State officers in Arkansas, North Carolina, South Carolina, Louisiana, Georgia and Ala bama. The call of States having been concluded, Mr. Holman’s resolution, which was offered last Monday, asserting that bonds ought to be taxed for national purposes, after debate, the resolution was referred to the Ways and Means Committee—88 against 34. Mr. Washhurne, of Iudiana, offered a joint resolution allowing 20 per cent.increase in sal aries to employees in the civil service at Wash ington. A motion hy Mr. Sevle to table it was reject ed 46 against 71. Pending a vote on seconding the previous question, the morning hour expired and the resolution went over till next Monday. The Speaker presented correspondence rela tive to a visit hy the Chinese Embassy to the House, and on motion, appointed Messrs. Scl.enck, Banks and Wood a committee to re ceive the Embassy. On motion the Senate was invited to attend the reception. T he conference report on the Arkansas hill came up. The House refused to table it, 37 against 102, and it was adopted without a di vision, Mr. Washburne offered a resolution of in quiry into the alleged fraudulent pay contracts entered into at Fort Smith by W. J. Chanler. Adopted. The Speaker said he had been requested to present a communication from C. W. \\ oo^ey. Mr. Butler ebjected, but subsequently offer ed a resolution that any communication from Wooley or liis counsel be placed in the hands of the Speaker to be sent to the committee of investigation for examination. Mr. Brooks made a point of order that the committee had not been in session for some days, there was no quorum in the city, and, therefore, the committee could not have the authorized resolution. The Speaker overruled the point of order and the House, by yeas 86, uays 345, voted to receive the resolution. Mr. Holman made a point of order, that as the resolution referred to a communication, the latter should be read. The Speaker overruled this, and after some debate the resolution, under the operation of the previous question, was adopted, yeas 61, nays 61. _ , Mr. Eldridge moved to suspend the rules for the purpose of introducing a paper from Mr. Wooley, which should be read and having purged himself of contempt he should be dis charged. This the House refused, 38 against 79. Mr. Shellabarger presented a resolution that Wooley be ordered to the bar of the House and allowed to purge himself of contempt, which was agreed to. Mr. Schenck moved that the House go into committee of the whole on the tax hill. Mr. Elliot appealed to Mr. Schenck to allow hini to ask the Mouse to make the river and harbor appropriation bill a special order for *rday next. Mr. Schenck declined to consent to an \ thing being made a special order until after the tax bill is disposed of, and suggested to Mr. Elliot to ask that it be made a special order after that time. Mr. Eliot said: I will do no such thing, and I will give the gentleman notice that we will send his tax hill back to his committee before a week. Mr. Schenck—That is .a declaration of war. Mr, Ingersoll—Which is not in order. The Speaker presented a communication from the Secretary of War, with a report from Gen. Hancock in reference to government aid for the Union Pacific railroad. Referred to Committee on the Pacific Railroad. Mr. Van Horn, of New Yoik, from the com mittee on the Niagara ship canal, reported a bill to provide for the construction of a ship canal arouud the fall of Niagara. Referred to committee of the whole on the state of the Union. The House at 2.30 went into committee of the whole and proceeded to the consideration of the tax bill. In a quarter of an hour afterwards Mr. Eld ridge moved the committee rise as witnesses at the bar of the House. The committee accord ingly aose and the Sergeant-at-Arms •,resent ed at the bar C. W. Wooley. The Speaker, addressing witness, read to him the resolution adopted by the House to day, and asked him whether he was ready to make such statements as would purge him of contempt of the authority of the House. Mr. Wooley—I am, sir; (presenting a paper from his pocket) this is my answer. After considerable debate as fo questions of order, Mr. Shellabarger offered a resolution re quiring Wooley to state whether he was now willing to go before the committee of manag ers of the House and make answers to the questions for the refusal to answer which he had been ordered into custody, aud if so, he shall have such privilege as soon as the com mittee can be convened, and that he in the meantime remain in custody, and in case wit ness declines he shall be recommitted for con tinuance of contempt, and so remain until he be ready to make such answer. Mr. Brooks made a point of order that four members of the committee were absent from the city, and the adoption of the resolution would doom the witness to further imprison ment in a dungeon. The Speaker overruled the point as the House authorized the committee to investigate by sub-committees. The resolution was adopted 93 against 32. The Speaker then, addressing witness, said: Mr. Wooley, I am instructed by the House of Representatives to propound to you the ques tion, “Are you now ready to testify before the said committee, and make answer to the ques tions for the refusal to answer for which you are now in custody?” Mr. Wooley—As my client testified in ref erence to these questions, and as I take it to be the order of the House that I shall answer them, I will do so. The Speaker—The order of the House then will be executed, that the witness appear be fore the committee as soon as it will be conven ient for the committee, and that in the mean time he shall remain in custody of the Ser geant-at-Arms. The proceedings in regard to Wooley having thus terminated, the House again went iuto committee on the tax bill, and immediately thereafter took a recess till 7.30. EVENING SESSION.

Miss Sawyer lives in the city of Rockland, Knox County, Maine.

She Kas competed successfully with the most able physicians in the States, as well as with nurses and Indian doctors. From time to time she has compounded remedies for the use in certaiu diseases in her own practice. Among other compounds she has for many years made a Salve which soon obtained an extensive Sale, nnd is 1.0w in great demand abroad, a? well as in pri vate families and among the hundreds of men engag ed at Rockland and vicinity in the hazardous busi ness of quarrying rock anil burning lime, and also among the seamen along the coast o* Maine. So pop ular did it become that while it was only put up in old mustard boxes, without labels or the help ot ad vertisements, Miss Sawyer received orders for it from nearly or quite every State in the* Union. The demand tin ally became so extensive that she was un able to meet it, and she made an arrangement with Ij. M. ROBBINS, a druggist ot Rockland, to take charge of tlie business and supply the trade. The agent is so well satisfied with the merits oi the Med icine that he guarantees it to cure all diseases for which it is recommended, and anv on; who gives it a trial according to directions, and is not satisfied, is invited to return the box, with half the eonten*?, and the money will be reiundod.

I think I can do well with it, and it will be quite an accommodation to my husband, as he can not get along without it. Ho has tried everything else and has never lonnd anything that healed Ins leg as that Salve of yours, aiid we have both found it to be all and even more than y u recommend V to be. We have had it in the family 5 or 6 years, and I have used it for everything and can truly say we have never found its equal. I useir for weak back and it acts like a charm. Mr Coombs has bad a Fe ver Sore on his leg for thirty years and would be a cripple to-day if he had not found a remedy in your Salve. It keens it healed, and takes out the in tianima tion, proud flesh, and swelling, and does for him all that he can ask. I can recommend it for a good many things you have not, lor I use it for evervthing. I consider It invaluable in a tamily. It you can put this testimony together, and it can be of service to yon, you are welcome. You can send me large boxes it you please, and a tew little ones. I can do better with the large ones. Yours, &e., ELIZBETH COOMBS. [From the Rev. E. A. Helmershausen, now qf Bucksport, Maine. This certifies that I have used Miss Sawyer’s Salve and consider it superior lo any other.

For Rheuma tism, Lame Joints, Nervous Headache, it gives in stant relief We have used it for several years, and find it an unfailing remed for burns, scalds, sore throat, salt rheum, swelled joints, &c., &c. We cheerfully recommend it to the public as being per fectly safe and good for many more aches than we have mentioned MR. & MRS. WM. R. KENDALL. Freeport, March 17, 1867. [From Rev. W. H. Crawford and wife, East Corinth Maine. J East Corinth, Feb. 19,1868. This may certify that we have used “Miss Saw yer’s Salve’’in our family years ami we cau cheerfully heir testimony to its merits as a healing, soothing Salve in all cases of Salt Rheum or lntiam ation. REV. W. H. CRAWFORD. JULIA A CRAWFORD. [From John G. Dillingham, Freeport, Maine ] This is to certify that I had a tumor on my face. It was there about three years It kept increasing in size, till I was advised to trv Miss Sawyer’s StJve. I bought a box and carried it with me, and every time I thought of it I would rub the tumor with the Salve, and before I used one box the tumor entirely disappeared. JOHN G. DILLINGHAM. We, the undersigned have sold more ot Miss Saw yer’s Salve, within the last six months than any other kind. Parties who have tried it speak in very high praise of its excellent virtues. C. P. FESSENDEN, 8. E BENSON, L. M. BOBBINS. Rockland, Oct. 12, 1867. [From Moses B. Tibbetts, Jefferson, Me.] I can reommend Miss Sawyer’s Salve, highly.— I have never used so good an article. For healing purposes it is without an equal. MOSES B. TIBBETTS. [From Rev. Nathaniel Butler.] It is simply an act ot justice and perhaps it will be a tavor to the public to say that 1 have used Miss. Sawyer’s Salve tor ten years, and believe it to lie a most valuable remedy for the puriioses for which it is recommended.1 It is most effective for animals in cases where a salve is ever used tor them. It has proved an almost certain cure lor ordinary scratches in horses. NATII’L BUTLER. Camden, Nov. 15, 1867. We, the undersigned, have been acquainted with Miss Sawyer for many years, and believe her to be a Christian lady and a skillful nurse, and having used her salve in our families, it gives us great pleasure in saying it is the best general medicine we have ev er used:— Rev.
