Fourth Paye— How Cyrus laid tire Cable; McPherson’s Opinion of Giant. The Democratic Convention* A ROBERT ELLIOT PLATFORM — TIIE DEMO CRACY OF MAINE FOR REPUDIATION. Robert Elliot, recently of Fort Warren, iti the Commonwealth ol Massachusetts,where ho retired during the late war at the earnest suggestion of the government, was a member of the com mitt & on resolutions at the Demo cratic Stale Crnveuliou. He left his mark* Y e don’t know what Robert’s literary qualifi cations are, and he may have employed the pen of Judge Rice in the revision of the reso lution of the Repubican National Convnelion of 1856,which has the place of honor in the Demo cratic platform constructed at Augusta. But Robert’s spirit breathes through the whole ▼ ork. “Incarceration in an American Bas *!e,” to wit, Fort Warren, gave the gentleman hunt Freedom “a turn” from which lie has not jet recovered. The idea of revamping the Republican reso lution ot twelve years ago is one that could hardly occur to oue whose wits have never been sharpened by the company of Rebel con Vi its. To be surejone would think that twelve ^■*arsought to measure the difference between the stages of progress of the Republican and Democratic parties. But the time is not long enough. The Republicans stand morally “in the foremost files of time,” while the Demo 4 rats are scrambling along as best they can fomewhere in the middle ages. So we reject this attempt of Robert’s to make it appear that 1 e is only|two years more than a decade be hind the times, as a characteristic Copper lead fraud. The first resolutiou is the piece de resistance c*t the platform and it may be wor.h while to consider it a little. The Fremont resolution 4»f ’56 was directed against Ibe gigantic iniqui ties perpetrated m the Territory of Kansas Ihrougli the agency of Franklin Pierce’s ad ministration. The people were forced to sub mit to the humiliation of seeing their elections carried and their local government controlled by armed mobs of “Border Ruffians” from Missouri. The genuiue resolution of the Re publican Convention reads as follows: Resolved, That while the Constitution of die United States was ordained and established by the people in order to form a more perfect Union, establish justice, insure domestic trail t|uilifcy, provide for the common defence, and Nocure the blessings of liberty, and contains J inple provisions for the protection of the life, liberty, and property of every citizen, the dearest constitutional rights of the people of ansas have been fraudulently and violently l iken from them— their temtory has been in vaded by an armed force—spurious and pre teuded legislative, judicial, and executive of ficers have been set over them, by whose usurped authority, sustained by the military power ot the Government, tyrannical and uii con-iitutional laws have been enacted and en forced—tue rights of the people to keep and bear arms have been infringed—test oaths of an extraordinary and entangling nature have l»een imposed as a condition of exercising the right of suffrage and holding office—the right of an accuse'1 person to a speedy and public trial by an impartial jury lias been denied — the right of the people to be secure in their pei sons, houses, papers, and effects against un reasonable searches and seizures has beeu vio juieu—ruey nave ueeu uepriveu oi me, noeriy, aud property without due process of law—that freedom of Bpeech and of the press has been lost —the right to choose their Representatives has been made of no effect—murders, robberies, and arsons have been instigated and encour aged, aud tbe offenders have been allowed to go unpunished—that all these things have been done witli tbe kuowledge, sanction and procurement of the present administration, and that lor this high crime against the Con stitution, the Union, and humanity we arraign 'he administration, tbe President, bis advisers, agents, supporters, apologists, and accessories, either before or after the facts, before tbe country and before tbe world, aud that it is our fixed purpose to briug tue actual perpe trators of these a rocious outrages, and their accomplices, to a sure aud coudigu punish ment hereafter. By means of clumsy verbal changes Robeit endeavors to make this language applicable to the state of things iu the South, not observing the following among the other difficulties in his way: 1. The resolution of’56 was directed against mob law, and was in the interest of human freedom; that of ’68 denounces legitimate au thority, exercised in behalf of the perpetuity of the Union, of the safety of the people and ol Justice, and is in the interest of human bond age as distinctly as the Democratic resolutions of ’56. 2. That of ‘06 attacked laws, public officers find criminals that were responsible ior the Usurpations, the denials of right and the blood shed that are the subjects of complaint; that of’68 attacks laws, public officers and patriots whose primary and sole purpose, first, last and all the time, has been to banish forever from the Republic the possibility of the perpetration of those wrongs. 3. That of '50 meant freedom and equality; that of ’68 means medieval class distinctions and the ownership of the laboring man by the capitalist. Out upon thee, Robert, for a political char latan! “Sweet are the uses of adversity,” but did they teach thee no better than this at Fort "Warren? The next resolution of the Augusta platform is clearly Robert’s. It comes with such exceed ing good grace from him: Resolved, That in view of the existing state ot public affairs “tbe time has come for all who love their country to band together against 1he Jacobins” who new control Congress and who threateu to subvert and destroy all that is valuable in the institutions bequeathed to us by our patriotic fathers, and ior the protec tion and defence of our own day have imperil led their lives and shed their blood. The above is from tbe Argus and is therefore undoubtedly authentic. It there is any want of elegance and perspicuity in the diction it must be attributed no doubt to the want of •fudge Rice’s supervision in drawing it up, but the idea struggles through it all. The “Jaco bins” (Republicans) are striving to subvert the institutions for tbe protection of which we (Democrats) have imperilled our lives and shed our blood. Helas! but this is cool. We, MarceiluB Emery, publishing a Rebel newspa per in Bangor, Robert Eliot, shut up for trea sonable conspiracies witli other traitors in Fort Warren, and E. F. Pillsbury making anti draft speeches in Kingfield I Be wary, Robert, " of copying more from Chief Justice Chase, for he has given you a halter with which you have very obligingly hanged yourself and your as sociates. The next tiv:' resolutions refer more or less coherently to financial matters. It is the fifrh to which we shall now relcr, wishing to call the particular attention of the people of Maine and of the whole country, especially of the poor men and of the tax-payers who are therein plainly represented as robbers and scoundrels, to the fact that the Democracy of this State have pronounced clearly and em phatically. without Qualification or reservation, for repudiation. Here is the text on which we found the assertion: It will confer unjust advantages upon mon ey lenders, and impose oppressive burdens upon the people to pay any bonds of the United States in gold, except such as are bv their teims made so payable, and all such I'oimfl as are made payable in currency should be paid as fast as it is possible to do so without inflating tbe currency beyond a safe and just point. Here’s for "you, then, Messieurs Democrats on that resolution. Yon must haul down that piratical flag, or the Republicans with their platform of civil and political equality and *he honest payment of debts will hold the State till the crack of doom. Tbe citi *ens of Maine are honorable men as a gen eral rule, and have certain old fashioned bnt well settled prejudices against robbery. And, by the way, Mr. Elliot, do you happen to remember those two Democratic members of the Legislature last winter who wanted their pay in gold? Isn’t the currency ot the “plow-holders” good enough for them? What is the moral status of men who want to take gold out of the pockets of those to whom it is due and vote it into their own? The Democrats attempted to ignore the snfltage question altogether, but the white man’s government theory would come out in an incidental fling at “ the right to vote con ferred upon hordes ot ignorant negroes.”— This action leaves the Augusta sages subject to the unpleasant imputation ot having neither the moral courage to declare them selves on the political quesiion of the century nor the sagacity to conceal their opinions, Very well, the glove is thrown down—repudi ation and a white man’s government, Tbe hero of Kingfield leads the column. What say you, brother Republicans, we shall not have much trouble in overthrowing this can didate on this platform I Accidents in Winthbop. — On Tuesday last, Mr.Luther Hersey, employed in the oil cloth factory of C. M. Bailey, caught his thumb in the machinery. The thumb, togeth er with the cords and nerves extending to the elbow, wcro torn out. The Good Templars promptly sent him $10, with an expression of sympathy. On the same day, Mr. Wing lost a finger, caught by a saw in the Agricultural works of Luther Whitman. Winthbop. Political .'Vote*. Tbe New York Times says that Caleb Cush ing lias more brains than any other leader of the Democratic party and wonders that bo has not been mentioned lor the Presidency. As if brains would commend him to Tammany Hall! Moirisey is the true representative man. A periodical bore till September—E. F. Pills bury’s story about the Democrats who drew jack-knives and whiskey punche* lor station ery. The Detroit Tribune aptly observes: “It is because the American people know that the Democratic party .stands to-day with oue hand reached out to greet the unrepentant rebels with the grasp of fellowship, and with the other doubled up to striko the negro dowu in to the dust, and that it lias repudiated and will repudiate that organization.” There appears no doubt but that the Presi dent will, on the 4th of July, issue a proclama tion of general amnesty. Indeed, he has prom ised it to several Southern men who have been urging him to pursue that course. A correspondent, said to he well acquaint ed with the Democratic clubs of New York, writes that the Chase movement has not been abandoned, hut on the contrary, is gaining •strength. Nearly all the clubs are committed to it, and the leaders do not hesitate to say that Pendleton canuot be nominated. The New York Tribune adds to its list of candidates for the position of Commissioner of Internal Revenue the name of Gen. Sheri dan. Small business—attacking the Republican lick c t because tbe candidates are from neighboring States and because the nominee for President was cliristeued Hiram Ulysses. The Harrisburg Patriot suggests to the Dem ocrats that as they want a Radical candidate, they will do well to take Gen. Butler. We learn from the Buffalo Express that Mr. Seward will support Grant and Coltax this fill no matter whether Ihe Democratic candi date should be Chase, Pendleton, Seymour, Nelson, Hancock, or even Andy Johnson himself. Theodore M. Pomeroy, of the Auburn (N Y.) district, and one of the ablest parliamen tarians of the House, will not be a candidate lor re-election. Over 20,000 persons have app ied for tickets of admission to the Democratic convention at New York. Tbe hall will not hold more than 8000. Gov. Pease of Texas declared in his recent message that crirn1 was never before as pre valent in Texas as at this time, and in proof of this stated that’the official returns from half the counties in the State showed that 206 homicides have been committed during the last six months, only a small number of which have been followed by any punishment. The New York Deniooratic papers have no occasion lor surprise that Geueral Grant was uot hailed with more enthusiasm in his recent passage through that city; if he had shown himself there unprotected, at the time of his struggle with the rebellion, he might have been mobbed by the readers of tlios3 papers. Njcws Items.—The Boston Po3t says that McCulloch will go to Londou and take charge of a banking house for Jay Cook & Co. as soon as he retires from the Treasury depart ment. The foreign committees of both branches of Congress are considering tbe question of rec oganizing Crete as an independent power, and the friends of that country are hopeful that Congress will take some action in this direc tion before the adjournment. On Monday the New Hampshire House of Representative] passed an important bill, pro viding that all railroads hereafter constructed shall be exempt from taxation for the term of ten years from the commencement of their building. On Tuesday George Francis Train was ar rested , and was brought before the Court of Bankruptcy in London. He vehemently pro tested against the arrest, but was, after a brief examination, remanded to prison by the judge. The Philadelphia markets are fairly glut ted with strawberries at 14 to 25 cents per quart. There was no representative from Maine in the graduating class at West Point this year.

The Democratic Conventions at Augusta* Augusta, June 24,18G8. To the Editor of the Tress: You learned the result of the gatherings hereby telegraph yesterday. I send you to day a lew notes aud jottings which may still be of interest. THE SOLDIERS’ CONVENTION, As it appeared in procession on the way to the hall numbered fifty-nine by actual count, who had at some time been connected with ar my or navy. Of these, one (their flag-hearer,) was taken from our jail the night before, four hail been arrested lor desertions by our depu ty marshal, and one had served an apprentice ship in Fort Warren. When they left the hall to join the State convention their numbers had increased to 127. They were received with a great affectation of enthusiasm. When this had subsided one ot the delegates directly in front ot me said to his neighbor: “Joe, I consider this soldier business a damned cheap affair, between you and me.” “So do I,” replied Joe, “but it lias cost us a good deal lor tickets to get the damned cusses here and we must make the best show we can.” The pas sage which excited most enthusiasm in Col. Roberts’s address to liis “fellow soldiers,” on taking the chair, was one in which he declar ed in favor of a “white man’s government.” THE “old FLAG.” The State convention adjourned with three cheers for tlie “old flag.” Where would the old flag be, il they had had their way! Gen. An derson of Portland, illustrated the regard of this worshipful company for (lie defenders of tho “old flag,” when he spoke of Grant as a man who had made himself altogether too prominent; who holds his present position liy reason of a great crime, and is the Republican standard-bearer because he confessed himself guilty of an act of infamy. In accepting and retaining the position of Secretary of War for the purposes which he confessed, Gen. Anderson said he perpetrated an act which should cousign him to evei lasting disgrace. This speech was vociferously applauded. NOMINATION OF ELECTORS. John C. Talbot of Machine and Philip East man of Saco were nominated for electors. Mr. Talbot withdrew. G. L. Boynton ot Bangor was nominated in his place and and also with drew. Thereupon a rollicking yeoman from Waterville, in a reasonable state of intoxica tion, abruptly informed tlie Chair that John Ware was his man, and he wanted John Ware for an elector, for John Ware was his man Accordingly John Ware of Athens was nom inated in the place ot Mr. Talbot, and three cheers were given (or the ardent up-river in dividual. THE THIRD DISTRICT CONVENTION Was first organized at 4 o’clock without re gard to credentials, and then Mr. Farley was nominated tor Congress and one of the dele gates to New York chosen. Rut a contest arising on the second delegate, the whole or ganization was objected to, and alter wrang ling for about two hours, the convention ad journed one hour for refreshments. At 7 o'clock the delegates re-assembled, re-organ ized, renominated Mr. Farley, and chose J. A, Creighton of lCnox and Isaac Reed of Lin coln as delegates to New York. These as al so those from the Second and Fifth Districts, choseu here to-day, and the delegates at large, except Judge Rice, are regarded as l’eudleton men. THE ENTHUSIASM. With five conventions massed in Granite Hall, they did not draw together so large a crowd as they had in 1836, when they were biateri by 18,000 majority. It was a noticeable fact that the State convention was composed almost entirely of veteran hunkers. Scarcely a young man could be seen on the floor of the hall. The enthusiasm was far less than had been expected. Damon, Portland and Vi einit_v. New Advertisements this Day. SPECIAL NOTICE COLUMN.

Complimentary Breakfast at Fal mouth Hotel. ■‘BFSIi: NTA'IION OF A FI.AO. The employees in erecting the Falmouth Hotel assemlik'il yesterday morning at the foot of Temple street and sent over to the hotel re questing the attendance of Mr. Wheeler, one of the lessees. On his appearing, Mr. Wood ford, one oi the superintendents in building the hotel, presented him with a beautiful seven yard flag, in behalf of the employees on the hotel, accompanying the presentation with a few felicitous remarks, to which Mr. Wheeler, in like 'manner, responded. The flag was then attached to the halyards and raised over the hotel amid the cheers of the crowd. Mr. Wheeler then invited the employees to partake ol a breakfast at the Hotel. One hundred plates were set in the magnifi cent dining hall, and the superintendents and workmen, with a delegation from the press,sa* down to enjoy the least. The meal, the fir?t one cooked in the hotel, was a sumptuous one, evincing that the lessees, Messrs. Wheeler & Ramsey, have got cooks who understand their business. After satisfying the inner man with the good things spread before them, Ezra F. Beal, Esq.> who has had the chitf superintendence in the erection of the edifice, called the company to order, and nominated Capt. Knight, of the Star, to preside. Capt. Knight, in assuming the position, made a few happy remarks upon the occasion for which they were assembled. He thought it very proper and just that the first meal cooked in the hotel should be for those who had worked so faithful and diligent ly in its erection, and paid a tribute of grati tude to Hon. J. B. Brown, the proprietor, for his energy in accomplishing what Portland had so long needed. The mechanics who had aided in the erection and completion of this building came in for a full share of his praise. Ezra F. Beal, Esq., followed Capt. Knight. Mr. B.gave a history of the progress of the work, the building having been erected and completed in less than one year. He spoke of the faithfulness of the employees and of the various superintendents of the work, naming Mr. Wm. Woodford, Mr. Day, Mr. Blonden, Messrs. Chase, Mr. Huston, Sheridan & Grif fiths, Jerome Fickett, Mr. Schumaker. Messrs. Littlefield & Wilsun, and all the employees under these gentlemen. They had built the hotel, aud now presented it not only to Mr. Brown hut also to the lessees, Messrs. Wheel er & Ramsay. The associations between him self aud Mr. Brown and his sons and the em ployees had been of the most pleasant kind* Nothing had occurred to iuterrupt tho har mony which should always exist among men eugaged in such an important undertaking. Three cheers were proposed for Mr. Beal, which were hertily given. o. unase, Hj?q., was called out. He spoke of the magnificent undertaking and of the successful manner in which it was carried out, aud alluded to the untiring perseverance of the men in every department during the pro gress of the work. It would be their duty as well as pleasure, wherever they might be, to speak of the Falmouth Hotel aud its worthy lesses, Messrs. Wheeler & Ramsey. Not an accident had occurred on the building during its erection, which called for thanks to our In finite Creator. He j)aid bis respects to Mr. Woodiord and the other superintendents on the building, and also to the employees for their faithfuluess. Hon. J. B. Brown, the projector and propri etor of the hotel, was then called out. He ex pressed the gratification it afforded him to be present and see the completion of their labor. Tbe work bad been done rapidly, and well done. If in tbe excitement caused by anxiety to hasten the progress of the work he had spoken any sharp or unkind words to them, be asked their pardon. Considering the rapidity which had been made in erecting the building, he thought it miraculous that no one at work upon it had been injured. He complimented Mr. Beal as one of the most faithful superin tendents that ever lived, and spoke ot the Portland mechanics as equal to any in the world. It had been said that this work could not be done by Portland mechanics, but he (Mr. B.) had determined it should be, aud they have succeeded in bringm" out work the ru nerior of which aaiutHt Ua twuud hefcweeu Port land and Sau Francisco. He expressed his satisfaction at every thing that had been done, and returned thanks to all the employees for their faithfulness. This beautiful structure was the work of their hands, and upjn them was reflected all the credit. To Mr. Jerome Fickett, who did all the painting, Mr. Brown paid the highest complement for his indefatig able exertions, and the beautiful style in which he had performed his contract. Mr. B. paid the compliment of saying that a more faithful, persevering and accomplished set ot artizans could not be found anywhere. Mr. Woodford proposed six cheers for Mr. Mr. Brown, which were given with a will. Nathan Webb, Esq., was called out. Ho spoke in a very felicitous manner of the pleas ure it gave hitn to be present at the compli mentary breakfast given to the mechanics who had erected and fiaished this beautiful edifice. He spoke ot the energy of Mr. Brown in every thing he undertook for the benefit of the city, md extolled the skill of the Portland me jhanics. Mr. W. said when he heard Mr. Brown apologizing for any petulance he might have exhibited during the progress of the building, he could not help hoping that the mechanics of Portland might, in the future, be subject to just such petulance from other par ses engaged in important undertakings, as they had received from Mr. Brown. (Trt memdous cheering.) Mr. Fickett was called up, and he briefly re sponded to the compliments that had been paid him and his work. With three rousiug cheers for the Falmouth Hotel and three more tor Messrs. Wheeler & Ramsey, the lessees, the company broke up. The grand opening of the hotel will take place on Monday next. Opening of the Kirkwood House* James Gunnison, Esq., of Scarboro’, well inown as one of the proprietors of the Atlantic House, has just erected an elegant house at Scarboro’ Beach, which was formally opened >n Tuesday last. The house is large, airy and wc*ll arranged Jitoughout. The situation is an excellent one, iftbrdiug a sea view from all the rooms, about >0 in number, and it will be a pleasant place For summer resort. Mr. Gunnison has had ;ood experience in this business aud well know4s liow to cater for the comfort and con venience of his guests. Oil the occasion of opening Ithe Veteran Dunner Association led off and proceeded to open the house in accordance witli ancient usages, and to dedicate it in due form. The Association was accompanied from the city by Lhe string band and several representatives of tbe press and other official characters. Every thing was conducted with due solemuity and proper decorum. After the opening aud dedication of the bouse, tbe company was invited to set down lo a magnificant supper prepared by Mr. Gun nison for the occasion, The capacity of the guests as “eatists” was fully tested and found to be “A 1.” After stowing their holds to the utmost capacity, speeches, toasts and songs prevailed, interspersed with music fro.u the string band. A dinner bell was presented to Mr. Gunnison by the Association, on which was an appropriate inscription. Mr. G. re sponded in happy terms. After this a certifi cate was given Mr. G. by the Association that the house had been opened in due form and properly dedicated. Soon after, the company took up the line of march for home, well pleas ed with everything that had taken place. Tbe furniture of the house is all new and of the best patterns. Under tbe auspices of Mr. Gunnison it cannot fail to be a popular place of resort during the summer se$so". The following are a few of the toasts given on the occasion: The Proprietor of the Kirkwood Ifouse—'Ma.y liis guests l-e as plentiful as bis provision for them is abundant. Our Host—As his hospitality is unbounded may his su:cess be as unlimited. Responded to by Judge Kiugsbury. Our Landlord—Though be has built him a new house, provided new furniture, laid in new stores, yet, ns is manifest ro all. He spreads beiora us the same old ta’-les, an l in bis attentions to his guests has not fjrgoiten liis old tricks. Responded to by Col. Winship. The V C. Asso intion—Thanks to tlieir well known sedate character, the caution ot the poet is not need ed: “At jovial parlies mind what you are at, Beware of your h iad and take care of your hat. Lest you find that a favorite son ot yoiir mother Has u brick in the one and an ache in the other.” Responded to by M. N. Rich. The Mo lei Caterer—One who lays under contribu tion the beasts of the licld, the lowls oi the air, and the fish o« the sea to regale his guests Our host does more, lavishing upon them even the “treasure hid den in the sand.” Responded to by E.

The Kirkwood House—Among the second settlers of Scarbor ugh wns one Cant Alexander Kirkwood, a brave Scotchman, a noted fighting character, who took to himself a wiie and built him a house on what was once known as Kirkwood's, now Prout’s Neck. May the new house named alter him be, as undoubt edly was his, the home ot kindly courtesy, goodch-jer and unstinted abundance. Responded to by Mr MoultoD. The following wa< the opening ode sung by the Veteran CununerClub: Th's dav we meet at this retreat, On Scarboro’s sandy shore. To celebrate near tisti and bait, And Oceau billows ro r. The V. C. A.

The Gunners will rise and blow, on the last two lines oi cacti verse, as chorus. The P. HI. JB’a. Excuraiou. Yesterday was the 61st anniversary cf tho Portland Mechanic Blues, and it was ver/ ap propriately celebrated by an excursion to Lit tle Chebeagu o Island, participated in by the present members and about one hundred i - vited guests. The steamer Gazelle was cbart teied for this purpose and a pleasanter or safer inland boat cannot be found on the coast. The excursiouists were to start from State street wharf at 8 A. M., and were on the ground promptly but on account of the steamer's be ing on the ground too early, they did not get awav till 9.15 A. M. The werther in the morn ing had a threatening aspect and the wind blew from the northeast, cold and damp, but the genial smiling faces of the company fully reciprocated for the unpleasantness of the weather, and all started off happy and per fectly satisfied with the prospects of the day’s pleasures. During the beautiful sail down, the Portland Band discoursed excellent music, and jolity was added to tho occasion by Harry Daniels’ representation of the French opera. Harry is a genius in his way and has a power of voice to compare with his talent as a caterer. Ar rving at the Island the P. M. B.’s landed and the place was taken without a struggle, and without even calling into requisition the gen eralship of our bravo Governor wh > accom panied the expedition. Marching to the beautiful grove located on the most prominent part of the Island, arms were stacked and the company resorted to games oi base ball, euchre and foot ball for amusement. About 11.30 breakfast was announced a*d every man came bravely to the work »nd showed due appreciation of the well spread board. Pork and bean3, cold meats, lobster salad, &e. in abundance, and a half hour was spent in attending to the inner man, for most of the party had started before breakfast »nd the pleasant sail down had a tendency to sharpen the appetite. After breakfast came the target shooting which occupied two hours of tho afternoon The first prize, a silver watch, was awarded to private Tbos. F. Donahue, whose shots aver aged 28 3-4 inches from the bull’s eye. The next best shot was made by private Orrei E. Hilton, who received a silver goblet as a ,res ent. Lieut. Chas. Pennell was unfortunate enough to make the poorest shot, for which particular mark of gallantry he received t tin gun beautifully painted red anl blue. The best single shot was made by private Frauk S. Follett. The three best shots were made by members of the pony section, commanded by Lieut. James F. Brown, and backed by Harry Daniels on “wool” as he expressed it. OI the amaters the best shot was made by Leonard Eustice, prize gold chain; the next best ky T. B. Bailey, honorary memberjof this coraitany; and the third best by C. H. Farley, who pro bably had one oi Ritchie’s compasses to aid him. Col. J. F. Miller made the poorest shot for which he received a tiu sword. After the target shooting a court martial was organized and Harry Daniels was arraigned on a search and seizure process. J. Frank Miller, Esq., as Judge Advocate,ap peared for the Governmont. Several witnesses were examined, and on account of the conflict ing testimony were put in custody. The J udge didn’t seem to disposed to give the prisoner justice, and Harry demanded counsel. Judge Goddard came to the rescue, and after his plea the jury acquitted him, as it was evident that it was a false charge. At 4 o’clock P. M. the bugle sounded lor dinner, and alter the clam chowder was par taken of tho following toast were offered and nupuuUod u», a» foih)W«; Our < o un try—Revered be the name of the Great Republic, iter “empire is destined to be limited only by the ocean, and her fame by the stars.” Responded to by Judge Goddard. Our St ite—Dirigo was put upon her banner In the great days of Webster and Clay; and it did not come down in the greater days oi Lincoln and Grant. Responded to by Gov. Chamberlain. Our City—To the commerce ot the great West and to the commerce of the sea, .she is destined to hang out the “limp ot beauty” oh all the high places of her business, her enterprise and her capital. Responded to by F. N. Dow, Esq. The Day we Celebrate—Its significance to us in creases with tho r >lling years, and leiniuds us of sol emn duties don? for our brothers and our country, as well ax of the convivial sports ot its three-score cele bi ations. Responded to by Capt. Parker and Col. Geo. B. Starbird. The Army and Hxvy Union—May they long be a liappy couple, and may the fruits or their Union be a fraternal spirit one toward anal her, so that then wherever our flag fl >ats upon the land or up.m the sea, thei e shall be but one heart and one baud be tween them.

At 5 o’clock we started on the return, aud bad a very pleasant sail up the harbor. Iu fact, on the whole, the day was very favorable and pleasant, and long will be remembered the 61st anniversary celebration of the Portland Mechanic Blues by those whose good fortune it was to participate in it. We all have reason to thank Col. T. A. Rob erts for his active, untiring and successful efforts to make the excursion satisfactory and one of pleasure to all. After the return there was a dress parade at the head ot High street, and by this, Capt. Parker and the active members ot his com pany gave eminent success to a large crowd, and went through the manceuvers with won derful precision. This is a company of which we cau justly be proud, and one that is an honor to our State. Democratic District Convention. The Democrats of the First Congressional District met in Convention at Reception Hall in this city yesterday. Hon. H. J. Swasey of Standisli was appointed President. There were about 200 delegates reported to be pres ent. After the report of the committee upon cre dentials had been accepted Col. Charles B. Merrill of Portland, objected to Charles P. Kimball, Esq , as a delegate—stating that Mr. Kimball was not entitled to a seat not having baen elected as a delegate and acting as a sub stitute'for a delegate from another ward. He, Col. Merrill, was opposed to such a proceeding. The Democratic delegations had been packed heretofore and it was time such proceedings were stopped. This remonstrance caused some little discus sion, but the report having been accepted the matter was dropped. It was voted after some discussion that the delegations from the two counties York and Cumberland should separate and each county should report t1ie name of a delegate, also an alternate to the National Convention in New York. York County reported Ira T.Drew as their delegate and Timothy J. Spinney as alternate. Cumberland County reported S. C. Blanchard as delegate and William R. Field as alter nate, and the reports were accepted. Mr. Kimball was a candidate for delegate from Cumberland and ballots were circulated for him. But he withdrew his name and nom inated Mr. Blanchard. Speeches were made by Mr. Swasey, the President, aul Mr. Kimball, who promised himself a glorious result both in the State and national elections, when the Republican party would be nowhere. He eulogized Chase, McClellan and Hancock but omitted Pendle ton and Hendricks. In truth Mr. Kimball was just as confident of success at the coming election as he was lour years ago, and also two years ago. Hon. L D. M. Sweat was called out. He repealed the same speech he made at the Dem ociatic meeting to sustain the Senators who voted against impeachment. The venerable ‘‘Bishop of Berwick,” Timo thy J. Shaw, was called upon, but he thought it was time to adjourn and the convention was of the same opinion. An adjournment ac dingiy took place just before one o’clock. New York Circus.—Lem’s great equi strum ' troupe from Fourteenth street, New York, opens this afternoon upon Deering’s pasture, for two days only, and as the high reputation of the establishment is generally^ understood and appreciated in this vicinity, it will doubt less attract overflown g audiences during its stay. As this company travels entirely by railroad it makes uo great show in the streets, but there is no question in regard to the supe rior character of the performances which it prese its. The very fact that it can perform for seven or eight months in succession in the city of New York, year after year, with con stantly increasing .success, is the best possible evidence of real, substantial merit. Many ue a !e ti nres are announced in the entertain meat f.n the present season, and the troupe has been augmented by the arrival from Eu rope of some of the most celebrated riders clowns and gymnasts in the world. The New York Circus is deservedly celebrated for the refined character of its entertainments, and the care taken to exclude everything of a coarse or objectionable character. Those wishing to avoid a crowd will do well to pat ronize the afternoon exhibition. Railroad Matters in New Hampshire.— We learn trom Concord that on Tuesday the Railroad Committee of the House unanimous ly reported a bill to incorporate the Franklin & Portland Railroad Company without amend ment, which was reported to the House by Mr, Kent, of Lancaster, with a speech in support of it. Mr. Kent stated that all the opposition to the Portland & Rutland Railroad had been withdrawn, by reason of an arrangement in regard to the route, aud the bill was reported to the House Wednesday by an unanimous or der of the committee. The Lake Shore road, opposed by the Bos ton, Concord & Montreal interest, has been reported favorably upon by a majority of the committee. I. O. of O. F.—At the semi-annual meeting of Eastern Star Encampment, last evening, the following officers were elected for the en suing term:—J. F. Sherry, Chief Patriarch; A. D. Pearson, High Priest; L>. W.

Base Ball.—If the weather is pleasant this afternoon there will be a friendly match game of base ball at the Arsenal grounds, between the Butchers of this city and^he Cresents of Saccarappa. Game will be called at 31-2 o’clock. Accident.—A staging at the Catholic Ca thedral, on Cumberland street, gave way yes terday morning.

The superior quality of Croasdale’s Super Phosphate as a fertilizer has become univer sally acknowledged wherever it has been used. Testimonials are pouring in lrom farmers, some of which are given below. The same reports come from Major Wm. C. Dodge, of Welch ville, from Ira Winn of Yarmouth and from D. 11. Kicker of this city who purchased it for his brother Alfred. Such unanimity in the testimony of those who have used the fertil izer is the highest recommendation the article could have. The truth is, the more it has be come kuown the greater is the demand. Our farmers know and learn from experience what is best for their lands and when they get hold of a reliable aud sure article like Croasdale’s Phosphate, they are not slow in recommend ing it The following are a few of the many testimonials received in favor of this Phos phate: West Falmouth, Me., June 22.1868. S. H Subbing, Esq.—1 used Croasdale’s Super Phosphate ou my clay loom ground sown down to grass—which was much rundown, put it on four weeks since—four hundred pounds to the ground aud weighed the Super Phosphate. Where I put it on, I .-hall cut at least two tons to tlie acre, and where I did not I shall not cut one. I would recommend it to all our fanners, to apply it just before a rain, immediately after getting off their hay this year. I find there are a great many who are going to do so. Yours, F. F. Hall. Gorham, Me., June 22,1868. S. II. Bobbins,—I used Croasdales’ Super phosphate on my garden, on my trees and grass. I have scions that have made ten inches growth this past season, and the trees a fine growth double of any other year. My grass on my lawn where I tried it is twice as large as where I did not, and in my garden it is equally satisfactory. You can refer, if you wish, ar,y one to me at my place in Gorham. Lewis Mclellan. [From the Secretary ol the Shapleigh and Acton Agricultural Society.) S. II.Bobbins,—I was much surprised to find, on going over to my lartn, about 3-4 mile dis tant, that my wheat, where I used the Phos phate, was twice as large and better color than the piece adjoining where there was no Phos phate used. Both fields were sown the same w. ek. My corn, which was not up last Satur day, the '13th, is all up now, 2 inches high where I used the Phosphate. It will be one week to-morrow since planted; wbeie I used barn manure it is just beginning to nip the ground. Yours, E. W. Bodwell. P. S. The above may seem rather strange, but I can establish my word by as good reliable men as we have in Shapleigh. Shapleigh, June 15,1868. I begin to hear from the Phosphate already. Customers tell me they can see a difference where they used it—even now. „ G. E. Berry. Burnham, June 20,1868. We sold a barrel to a man at Danville June tion who used it beside Bradley’s L. and all kinds, and lie reports a difference in favor of yours of several inches.

It was found to be an excellent, matured Elder berry Wine, comparing favorably with the choicest samples of ‘*81011)001 Wine,” and containing even more more of the acid salts, astringent and valuable qualities ot the berry, than that wine does. It has the best properties ot Port Wine, without its intox;cating quality, and in sickness, or as a bever age, it should replace the imported wines. Respectfully, a. A. HAYES, M. D.

In 1817, the great grand principle of stopping the most excruciating pain iu an instant, without em ploying such dangerous agents, as Chloroform, Opi um, Morphine, Acontine, Ether, etc., was first made known in Kadway’s Ready Relief. This remedy accomplished this wonderful and delightful desideratum in all eases ot external ami internal pain. In an instant it atfurile i relief, the mo ment it was applied to the parts of the bo iy where inflammation or pain existed—it at once relieved tt o patient of the mo.-t violent an.l excruciating pangs and throbs oc pain, amt imparted the delightful sen sation ot ease and comiorr. Every kind otpam, whether Rheumatism, Neural gia, Toothache,! Pair.s in the Chest, Side. Lungs, Stomach. Bowels, Kidneys, Spine, Legs, Aim-,Feet, one application was sufficient to kill and extermin ate the pain. Taken internally 20 drops to n tea-spoonful would cur *, and will euro Asiatic Cholera, sever and Agae, Chills and Fever, bilious Cholic,Inflammation of the Bowels, Cramps, Spasm, Diarrhoea, Dysentery, and everv pain that may exist in the i«»side of man, wo man or child; this was Radway’s Beany Relief, of 1847, and it is Radway’s Ready Relief greatly im proved in 1868. We then started it in its mission or relieving tlic infirm, pain-stric «en. sick, distress?d and crippled ol all uaf ions throughout the world, and now t -dav it is used, patronized and revered as a household ne cessity, in the palaces of sultans. Emperors, Kaimos, tviugS; High Priests, Nobles,as well as in the c t tages of ihe laboring classes ot every natijn on the face ot the earth. In every war that has taken place within the last20 years, tills remedy lias been used as a preventative of malarious and infectious diseases—as well as a cure for wounus, stiff joints, bruises, accidents, and to relieve the soldiers from pain. Letters from Am y Surgeons and distinguished Generals and soldiers in our late war are on file, certifying to tli • wonderful service of I tie fladway’i* Krady K <*lir f.
