THE undersigned having been appointed Agents for the sale of the above Coal, would say to the citizens of Portland Before you lay in ?onr Winter’* Coal.be dure and Try the JoIium Coal. This celebrated Coal has for years stood the high est lor domestic use of any White Ash Coal mined. In preparation and quality it has always been kept j up to the standard. It the Johns Coal suits once, it will alwa>s suit; because there is no mixture. This we claim as a particular advantage over other coals. Consumers by buying the Johns Coal will avoid the continued trouble and annoyance of getting every other year bad slaty coal. Every one has had this trouble. Johns Coal we will warrant to suit in every case. We give a few reasons why the John* Coal i* the BUST. First—It is the Purest White Ash Coal mined. Second—It is the most Economical and gives the best heat. Third—It will not clinker, and lor durability and strength it is unsurpassed. Fourth—It alwa> s conies the same. We sell the Johns Coal at the same price as any other good While Ash Coal. We have lor free-burn ing Coal, DIAMOND AND LORBERY. 5£ir*For Furnaces and Parlor Stoves we shall kee tlie Harleigli, Hazelton and Sugar-Loaf Lehigh. Also on hand Hard and Soft Wood. Randall, McAllister & Vo., 00 Commercial St. June27-dtt Franklin Coal! FROM LTKENS VALLEY. • BEING so much “PoorCoal” in the market, the undersigned would beg leavdKb call tlie atten tion of the citizens ol Portland t> t He above named Coal. It is free from impurities, and when used with rea souable care burns entirely to ashes, which are of the deepest red of any Coal Known. An equal quantity ignited will yield at. least one third more heat than any other coal. It is more quickly ignited than any other anthracite (thus sav ing expense in kindlings); while after ignition, with a proper reduction ot draft, it will outlast all other coal, ami remain longer on lire. A much less quantity of this coal can be kindled and will retain its fire, tliau can be possibly used ot white ash, this tact will result in large savings in spring and tail, and at. such times as require only a moderate degree ol beat. In slimt, it is the most eootioaiical coal known, and needs hut a trial to give it the preference over all others. We would also call vour attention to our other su perior Coals, such as kclaigh, John*, Gri*coni, and other White and Red Ash Coals, suitable for Furnaces, Parlor Stoves, Ranges, tfc. Also on hand HARD and SOFT WOOD, all ot which will he sold at the lowest prices for cash. EVANS & GREENE, 283 Commercial Street, head Smith’s Wliatl. Portland. June 29, 18C*. dtf.

CHAMBERLAIN, OF BRUNSWICK. Letlera of m Vagabond.— No. III. Sunday, July 12, 186$. To the Editor of the Press: What a widely different thing is Sunday in the country from Sunday in the town! I have never wondered at the conclusion of the little country-bred child, who being taken to the city on a visit, declared on her return that they didn't have Sundays in the city; there was so much going on that she rather thought God forgot to make them auy! If He does not forget the day it is quite certain that a good many of His children do. But here in this remote and peaceful region, is the true Sabbath feeliug and aspect. You wake early from sleep that is souud and re freshing; and the deep stillness everywhere, the freshness and purity of the “incense-breath ing morn,” speak to you like an invocation to prayer. The soul takes naturally and sponta ueously the attitude of devotion; the heart rises in involuntary aspiration to the bounte ous Creator of all this beauty. The stillness is prcfouud. Not only is there no echo of the noisy world that foams and chafes outside this quiet haven,\>ut even the ordinary sounds of rural life are hushed. There is no driving of teams afield, no noise of labor about the barn, no ring of whetting scythes, no shouting of children at play. The men go saunteriug about the yard and garden in clean white shirt-sleeves; and within doors the women, folks move softly, making quiet preparations for the day’s sacred duties. Then the bells— in town their sound, even on Sunday, is not without some faint echo of the week’s disso nance and clangor; but here their sweet, far sounding peal is iu harmony with the morn ing’s serenity and repose. Soon, obedient to their summons, come forth from the scattered homes the country folk in their best attire, moving decorously to the house of worship. Ou foot mainly, or in wagons. There are uu smart turn-outs, such as one sees in the larger towus, or in the villages where fashion makes her summer resorts The wagons are fitted with double seats in which tht whole family stow themselves, and drawn by strong-limbed horses whose level necks and rather un gainly motion tell of much week-day la bor with the hoeing machine and the mower. Here are the fathers hard-handed and shread eyeu; tue motners rattier bent anil failed, with the look of care not quite banished from their kindly faces, and the children, freckled and healthy, who having run about barefooted all the week are a little uneasy in respecta ble shoes and stockings. Here are big-should ered youug fellows whose faces have been tanning all the season in the fields, not notice able for grace of deportment but the kind of stuff for all that which beat down the hosts of rebellion and treason; and here are bloom ing young wunen with the starch of their Sunday fim ry a little the worse for close packing in the wagons, but looking as if they could make butter, or a bonnet, keep a school or do the honors of a husband’s home with dignity and propriety whether he should hap pen to he a farmer, the governor of a Wes tern state or ambassador to a foreign court And I have no donbt they can. They read the Press, and the Atlantic Monthly, and there is no position which in ten yoars time you may not see them filling with as much grace as if they had been born to it. In the country everybody goes to church, so no matter what your city habit is you join, of course, “the well-appareled throng.” The prim, white-painted church, standing back of a little strip of green sward, has a long wooden doorstep in front, and on one side a row of sheds for the horses. The numerous windows have no blinds, so that the light within, re flected from staring white washed walls, is painfully strong, and the heat intense. The good man in the pulpit evidently feels it, for by the time ho is well in the middle of “third ly” he pulls off his coat and proceeds with the sermon in his shirt-sleeves. Nobody seems to be surprised at this free-and-easy proceeding; indeed, as most of the men present have made the same comfortable arrangement for them selves, I infer that it is considered the proper thing to do. The minister puts great energy into his discourse. He is strong on points of doctrine, and he drives his lesson home with much force of voice and gesture. Involunta rily you recall Burns’s description: Hear how hr clears the points o’ faith Wi’ rattlin’ and wi' thumpin,' ” &c. But the heated air and the hard labors of the week have an effect npon the congrega tion which is in some instances more than a match for their interest in the preacher. Their heads droop one after another, their eyes close, and presently the hot room fades out of sight and mind, and the benediction of slumber, so much richer in blessing than the formal one of the preacher rests upon them. After the service there is a baptism, and the whole congregation troops forth to witness it. We follow also to a spot by the riverside, where the bank shelves down to a little strip of sandy beach. Here the different actors in the sa cred rite are assembled. The minister and the neophyte, both arrayed in loose robes of blaek serge, occupy the centre of The group, while around them stand the elders and assistants. A prayer is said and a hymn is sung, many voices joining in the strain. It is a most im pressive scene. A thunder-cloud is rising in the west, and the air lias that b-eathless, ex pectant hush which precedes the shower. Not a bird or a leaf stirs in the branches above us, but, now and then, the thunder mingles its sol emn bass with the sweet hymn that floats up from the water-side. The candidate is a young girl. Her face is pale, bnt calm, and full of a rapt and tender joy. It is beautiful to see how calmly she goes down there to be buried under the musical, rippling waves. The ceremony ends with a brief benediction; the crowd begins to separate, and we turn away. A strange and beautiful thing is faith. I doubt if I have ever envied any human being more than for one moment just now, I envied that young girl. I say so to the Doctor as we walk home, aud he answers with a quiet smile: “‘I like a church; I like a cowl; I love a prophet of the sou.; * * • But not t<»r all his faith can see Would / that cowled churchman be.”' And, in good truth, neither would I. ZlNOABA. —The male dress at Honiburg is described as either tight and short coat, tight trowsers, all shirt front, scarcely a line of necktie, or the planter of Senegal all over—a capacious white coat, no vest, capacious trowsers, that turn round in corkscrew folds, and, to crown I all, a vast, roomy Panama hat. W««“ »• Bates Callega. Lkwistox, July 14 1888 To the Editor of the Pr>is»: On Thursday, Priday and Saturday, ol last week, occurred the examination of the classes • n Bates College.

Hawkes, of Windham, the third to Francis L. Noble of Lewiston. Sunday afternoon Rev. D^, Cheney, Presi dent of Bates College, preached the Baccalau reate Sermon at the Free Baptist Church.— He discoursed of “College as Holy Ground.” He spoke of the Christian founding of our New England colleges, of their Christian in fluences and of the Christian work which they do. H Is heart was glad because all the present graduating class were Christians. The exer cises closed with the singing, by the class, of an original Class Ode. In the evening Rev. Mr. Penney, ot Augus ta, delivered the annual sermon before the Young Men's Christian Union and Phillips Missionary Society. His theme was “The Ideal” as a standard for the aspiration and labor of lile. In the Free Baptist church on Monday eve ning, occurred the Prize Declamations by the Bates Junior aud Sophomore classes. Presi dent Cheney presided. Music by Johnson’s Cornet Band. The church was crowded.— Prayer by Rev. Mr. Marriner, of Haverhill. The declamations were, in part, original. Borne el them were very finely delivered. The committee to award the prizes, Hon. W. P. Frye, Rev. G. P. Mathews aud J. B. Cotton, Esq., awarded the first prize to W. H. Bolster, of South Paris, the second to Charles O Free man, of Lewiston, and the third to Geo. W. Yeoman, of Candia, N. H. Annual meeting of President and Trustees of College occurred Tuesday, 8 A. M It was voted to change the time of holding Commence ment to the last Wednesday in June. Then there is to be a vacation of eight weeks, follow ed by three terms: Fall term of fourteen weeks, Winter terra of eleven weeks, and Boring term of twelve weeks. There not be ing a quorum present no action was taken up on the anaendmed charter, which is to sepa rate the Maine State Seminary from Bates College. This matter will he acted upon at an adjourned meeting to be held on Thursday, at 8 A. M.

The church was full; the exercises passed off very satisfactorily indeed. Barlow.

Some conservative members having sneered at it on account of exposing the ruler of the Republic to impeachment and deposi tion, Mr. Hellgren, one of tbe extreme liber als, jumped up, aud cried, “Yes, so it does. But your constitutions foist bad rulers forever upon suffering nations, and even their sons and their grandsons!” The president called him to older, and quite a tumultuous scene en sued. —At a collection lately made at a charity fair, a young lady offered the plate to a rich man, who was noted tor his stinginess. “I have nothing,” was his curt answer. “Then take something, sir," she replied; “you know I am begging for the poor." —John Devereaux, of Waterbary, aged 34 years, died in the Connecticut State Prison on Wednesday. He was pardoned by the Legislature June 25, but the Governor forgot to sign the papers He is reported to have died of a broken heart. —A city journalist is New York has become a benefactor to his race by inventing a speech extinguisher. which is described as follows: It is a large sheet-iron cone which fits into a grooved plate. The plate is fixed on the floor and the cone fastened above by a chain of suf ficient length to admit of its descending to the groove. It is so arranged that at the end of five minutes it falls and becomes almost air tight. Every speaker is required to stand up on the plate, and informed of tbe time he can employ. If he exceeds five minutns the cone falls and shuts the fellow under, so that he can’t extricate himself or be heard. —Miss Lydia Howard, a child between four or five years old, has been acting burlesque at private residences in London, and is said to possess extraordinary dramatic talents. She is styled “The Baby Actress.” —The number of cattle driven out of Texas this season is estimated at half a million. A Texan states that' this large amonnt ot cattle will hardly be missed from tbe prairies. —Tbe Foundling Hospital for illegitimate babes, at Rome, has at present 4,000 children, and 2,000 nurses. It is said that every fourth child born in Rome is a child of shame. —There is a woman now living in Norwich, Conn., 105 years old, who has good health and is a large, strong woman; tends most of her time; has two daughters living with her 60 or 70 years old each, and both maiden ladies. —In this month’s Revue Populaire, of Par is, Dr. Bader gives the following curious ex periment, made by Dr. Claude Bernard:—If oxygenized blood be injected into the arteries of tbe neck immediately after decapitation, warmth and sensibility return; the eye gets animated and displays such strong perception that a hammer shaken heiore it will cause it to wink and look sideways. —The New York Herald has an aocount, given by a correspondent, of a visit to the is land of Juan Fernandez, which takes away all the poetry from tbe narrative of Robinson Crusoe. The attempts to colonize tbe island have all proved abortive, and nineteen souls now constitute the entire population, and these eke out a miserable existence by fishing and hunting, having no bread of any kind and but few vegetables. The island is mountain ous, is covered with timber and produces few varieties of fruit; but the waters abound in fish of almost every kind. —A short time ago a white man in tbe vi cinity of Warrensburg, Mo., married a black woman. The citizens heard of the fact, and brought the man into town to suffer indigni ties. While lie was being persecuted, a large crowd around him hooting, yelling, &c., a gen tleman present stepped out and asked him: “What are your politics, my friend?” “Iam a Democrat, have always been a Democrat, and always expect to be a Democrat.” The hooting soon subsided. —A Connecticut Democratic paper stated that General F. P. Blair is a graduate of Yale College, and tbe New Haven Journal ex plains: General Blair graduated at Yale quite prematurely. It took him less than a year to “go through” college. —The Medical Society ot rennsyivania pro proposes to investigate intemperance profes sionally. They declare that pledge taking does not control people’s appetite, neither does sumptuary legislation; and moral and legal suasion having failed, they are going to try what can be done medically. The Society ac cordingly appointed a committee to report on the medical, civil and social aspects ot intoxi cation and the duty of physicians in the prem ises. It has long been contended by those who have given the subject the closest consid eration, that intemperance is a disease, and should be treated as such; and instead ot pun ishing drunkards, by sending them to jail, they should be sent to a hospital. —It is rumored that Senator Oonness is o be married to Miss Hildreth, a nrece and ward of Hen. Butler, as well a. a beautiful and ac complished young lady.
