In nearly a'* of the city churches yesterday
the discourses turned upon the observance of
Memorial Day. All the >sermons were good,
and many of them very fine. They were mark
ed by a tender reverence where they spoke of
the cherished dead who laid down their lives
on tlie field of honor. Nor were they unmind
ful of the merits of the living, who. less fortu
nate than their dead comrades, have returned
to their homes crippled in limb and shattered
in health. Year by year the observance of Me
morial Day is taking a deeper hold upon the
hearts of the people. Tlie custom of decorat
ing with flowers tlie graves of our honored dead
lias something about it which appeals strong
ly to the feelings and imagination. Coming as
the day does when the desolation of winter has
just given way to the blossoms of spring, it
seems with its floral tributes a fitting type of
the resurrection and the life.
Rev. George W. Bicknell at India street Un
iversalist church, preached a sermon on “Me
morial Day and some of its lessons,” at his
church before a large congregation, yesterday
morning, takiug for his text a portion of the
28th verse of the 9th chapter of Esther, “These
days should ho remembered and kept through
out every generation. * * * nor the
memorial of them perish.”
He commenced with a reference to the cus
tom of the ancients, to observo tlie anniversa
ries of important events in their histories.
Fasts and festivals were frequently occurring.
In the present season of record and intelligence
we cannot anticipate so much enthusiasm in
the observance of the anniversay of any event
as was manifest among the ancients; for it was
these fasts and festivals by which they were
kept in remembrance of by-gone events. Yet
it is well for as to remember sonic occasions of
the past. We are not to forget; because the
lessons are important, and God designs that we
shall profit from them.
He referred to the approaching Memorial
Day, allyiding tersely to the ready sacrifices,
and the earnest, patriotic feelings of the early
days of tlie war. He spoke of the devotion of
tlie army—contending that it was principle for
which the soldiers enlisted and fought. All
creeds and political lines forgotten. The devo
tion of the fallen should call fortli our warmest
gratitude The speaker did not attempt any de
fence of the memorial commemoration.' He
believed it right, bringing to mind the cost of
our blessings, and hence they were rendered
more valuable. While he did not, as a princi
ple, believe in war, he did in being prepared for
it through the influences of a live patriotism.
He did not believe the continued observance of
tlie day kept alive antagonisms, because there
was no anger in tlie soldier’s breast. The war
was not thus waged. But he believed it would
have a tendency to strengthen the bond of
union between the North and the South. He
closed witli a brief allusion to some of the
teachings of the hour. The fallen soldier’s con
secration should be ours in the higher relations
of life. We are to eulist in the Grand Army of
which Christ is Captain, and even as the sol
dier pressed forward, so are wo wherever Christ
leads. We cannot buy exemption; we are to do
our duty individually. Life, being active, we
must be faithful, even as the blood of tlie noble
soldier testifies to his faithfulness. Then we
may- leave our children and our children’s chil
dren precious blessings, and receive indue tinre,
in the beautiful land above, the rewards which
are due to the brave, the true and the victori
The music was excellent.
Post Bosworth, G, A. R., accepted the kind
invitation of the society to attend service in a
body, and after a beautiful introductory service,
listened to an eloquent and practical sermon by
the pastor, Rev. W. E. Gibbs, based on I Mac
cabees, xv, 28; Nicanor lay dead in his harness.
The speaker briefly alluded to the death of
the warrior in battle array, and the respect the
world has always had for men of valor, “Dead
on the Held of battle”—how much it means, as
we recall the self devotion and steadfast hero
ism of tlie thousands that have strewn the
world’s battle-fields. Generally speaking, wars
had been useless, but honor, steadfastuess and
courage are only virtues. In these days of
back pay and organized theft, the illustrious
examples of self-sacrifice and manly generous
courage, arc worthy to be remembered. The
tendeucy of the time is to raid upon the money
bags—to obtain wealtli in the shortest time, by
the most unqestionable ways, dwarfing man
hood into mero selfishness. Ear better to die
with the harness of industry on, than to rust
out in ease purchased by ill gotten gains. Suc
cess is not ease, it is not wealth, it docs not
come in that way,—but by the uprighness
of righteous industry. The lesson of the war
worn veteran who died with the harness on,
teaches that all that is worthy must be attained
by l'fe-loug and persistent struggles. God
meant that all men should work—that no posi
tion is free of responsibility. The world is a
battle-field, and every man has a part iu the
great strife. True men cannot escape the re
sponsibility. Only cowards will skulk behind
the shadow of crime. All good men should
feel that they are life long soldiers|for the right.
There are opportunities to do good on all sides
It is the life work of Christian men to do good,
that when they die. like Nicanor and the men
who gave their lives to the country, they fall
with their harness on.
In conclusion he said:“As we stand by the
graves of these comrades who have fought and
passed on, the memory of their valorous deeds,
should give us courage to pres s onto the ac
knowleaement of the greatest victory attainable
by human effort—the conquest of evil. Come
in what shape it may, we have only need to bo
faithful to our own best convictions to resist
the shock of onset and send the ranks of
wrong along from our front. And if we fall,
while still we struggle, if we have not removed
the harness which made known the side on •
which wc fought, we need not be ashamed to
die. A good cause, faithfully supported, makes
even death glorious. The memory of such as
do not falter in their allegiance to righteousness
is fragrant always with holy thought and heav
enward desire. Be ye faithful unto death and
I will give you the crown of life, is the promise.
Worthy of all acceptance is the reward;
worthy the cause for whose sake it is offered.
Let no soldier hold back the service it re
quires. The great captain of salvation com
mands us forward,and forward let the order be,
until the power of evil be destroyed, the reign
of righteousness secured. Forward, all along
the line, Jesus commands, it is ours to obey.”
Rev. Dr. Hill delivered a strong and meaty
discourse from Nahum I, 3. The sermon was
in a measure a discussion of the old problem
of the origin of evil. He commented severely
upon the recently spoken protest of a distin
guished divine against the idea that God’s
providence was visible in the salvation of the
survivors of the ill-fated “Atlantic.” The di
vine mentioned coni ended that if God’s provi
dence had been at work all would have been
saved. Dr. Hill saw the hand of God in the
drowning and in the rescue. The Almighty,
for his own wise purposes, sees fit sometimes
to work good by menus of death and suffering.
This was manifested in our late war, when
thousands of men and millions of treasure
were sacrificed that the uation might live. The
result was a purification of the moral atmos
phere, much as a storm clears the physical
The speaker then touched upon Memorial Day,
and dwelt upon the debt which we owe to our
brave defenders, both living and dead. Al
luding to the words of his text, he said that
God was seen in the flowers as well as in the
At Pine street church the altar was decorated
with flowers. Rev. D. H. Hannaburgh deliv
ered a very interesting discourse from Joshua
xxiv: 3. He began by saying that Joshua clos
ed his eventful life by an act of faith. He was
buried in Phechem, and ever since that spot has
been sacred ground. All through the Bible we
find great attention is paid to the graves of the
sacred dead. They are considered sacred still;
they are just as sacred to-day to those that be
held them as ever. We of the present genera,
tion have our consecrated places, not only in
this city, but all over the country. The speaker
then referred to those who had fallen, the graves
of whom would not be decorated duriog the
coming week, He gave a vivid description of
the burial of comrades on the battle-field. Do
you suppose that these fallen heroes have not a
monument raised to their memories? Thus
friends will remember them though they cannot
decorate their graves. The result of the war
showed that we can d-fend the flag, and defend
those who fought uuder it. But to do this it
was necessary that a sacrifice should be made,
and that sacrifice is what we are to coinmemo
ate on the coming week. Every good thing
that a nation has must be bought with blood.
Just so in the case of Christ’s coinin''- he gave
his life to save a world from sin He was wil
ling to sacrifice himself for sinners, anil the
most effectual way to bring sinners to Christ is
to show them the sacrificing spirit that he man
ifested. feo with those that we are to pay re
sptet to in the coming week, they were willing
to give their lives for their country. Let us
then in the coming week wreath garlands around
tno grave of the fallen hero, and think of the
bright garlands that they wreathed for their
At State Street Church in the morning, Rev.
E. Y. Hiricks, the pastor, in a beautiTlul dis
course on the words found in the 11th and 12th
verses of the second chapter of Soloman’s Song
—in which he deduced the lessons tube a dream
from nature—most felicitously alluded to the
ceremony of of the comiDg Decoration Day,
in which the graves of our noble heroes would
he garlanded, and their memories and deeds
held precious.
In the evening, Rev. Dr. Small preached a
very able discourse, replete with home truths
putina most practical manner and forced
homo witli eloquent appeal, to the members of
the Grand Army. His text was 1st Corinth
ians, 16: 13. “Quit yourselves like men; he
He said it should be tho purpose of those
who propose to honor the nation’s dead to
strive to pay them tho titest honor possible.
Their great sacrifice saved the nation. %Ve
might build monuments; hut if we did this
and then wont on to furget the inestimable gift
of country they had vouchsafed to us, our hom
age would be mockery. Mr. Small then pro
ceeded to show three ways in which we could
honor the nation’s dead: First, by a continual
manly contest against evil and temptation; by
a life of integrity, by a struggle against selfish
ness at all times. In illustration of the spirit
of selfishness he said there were men who had
made a fortune out of (he war who could not
give a dollar for a hospital, or a wreath for a
soldier’s grave.
Next to honor tho country’s dead we should
quit ourselves like men. This is not done b\
throwing one’s self away rashly, not by acting
the life of the bully, not in falling in with the
popular current, not by dashing feats on rare
occasions, but by continually following the dic
tates of the right at whatever consequenco.
The next point considered was how to be suc
cessful in our efforts to quit ourselves like men.
First, be sure you are in the right, then be
zealous. In this connection he spoke of the
power of association. To-day greedy men in
Portland defy public opinion and send out of
their dens besotted drunken men to lie in filth
upon our streets a stench in our nostrils and a
source of pollution to the young. If tbe good and
the pure and the manly of the city would in some
way unite and say, no more of this, there would
be an end to it. Above all things, to quit your
selves like men, you must enlist under the ban
ner of Jesus. His is the most reliable tbe only
invinciable strength.
The sermon was full of vivid illustrations,
manly in utterance and elicited the earnest at
tention of a crowded house.
At the Cathedral of the Conception, Bishop
Bacon spoke feelingly of tbe debt we owe to
tbe holy dead, who gave their lives to their
country, and urged upon his flock the propriety
of joining in the decoration of tbe graves at
Calvarv Cemetery.
At Chestnut Street Church, tbe new pastor.
Rev. Mr. Jones, delivered a strong and fervid
address, abounding in many fine thoughts upon
tbe duty which we owe to the memory of our
dead soldiers whs so freely gave up their lives
for their country. At High street church Rev
Mr. Feun preached a sermon richly freighted
with thought, the text of which was taken from
the sublime imagery of tile book of Job, He
paid an eloquent and glowing tribute to tho
dead soldiers of the republic. Some of his par
ishioners, as will be seen by the card elsewhere,
have united in a request for its publication,
and we are in hopes to give it to the readers of
the Press in a day or two.
In the other churches of this city allusion
was very generally made to Memorial Day.

Maine Central Railroad.—A settlement
was reached Friday in the prospective suit
against the Maine Central Railroad. Messrs.
Fogg, Burrill, Totman and others of Kendall’s
Mills recently brought a bill in equity against
the Maine Central, to prevent them frun chang
ing the location of their road at Kendall’s
Mills. The Maine Central Company proposed
to discontinue their way over the old bridge,
which was destroyed, and thus not cross the
river, but keep on the east Bide the whole way,
thus leaving Kendall’s Mills to depend on the
Skowhegau line. It is new understood that
those who bring the bill in equity, aud the Ken
dall’s Mills people generally, ha-e agreed to an
nul their action if the Maine Central will make
free the toll bridge at that place at a cost of
810,000, aud it is said that the Maine Central
has acceded to those terms.
Portland Dry Dock Company.—This Com
pany have had upon their ways for the year
ending May 1st 1873, 30 schoouers, 1G brigs, 11
barks, 15 steamers and 4 tow boats. Two of
the barks were taken in loadod. Any vessel
can go into this dock without discharging her
cargo, whieh is an expense saved to the vessel.
The rates of oharges at this dock are the same
the year round, although the expense of keep
ing the docks in good condition is necessarily
greater in the winter months, than in the sum
mer. The rates are less than at Boston as
shown by the Boston cards. Vessels 400 feet
long and drawing 20 feet of water can enter
this docic. Ship owners have the privilege of
employing their own caulkers and carpenters
if desired. During the past year the Company
have expeuded over 81300 in improvements and
Accident.—Saturday evening as Mr. M. E.
Haskell, of the firm of Lord, Haskell & Co.,
was riding on the Western Promenade, his team
became entangled with several other teams.
He was driving quite fast, aud as he swerved
one side to avoid the press his carriage struck
against a tree, hurling him over his horse’s
head several feet. No bones were broken but
the. shock was a very severe one, and at one
time serious iuterual injuries were feared, as
Mr. Haskell freely vomited blosd. Dr. T. A.
Foster was called aud is now in attendance on
the injured man. The symptoms of the case
are now very favorable and no permanent in
jury is looked forward to.

A Nice man for Chief of Police.
The new Chief of Police, Matsell, is the same
man who was chief under Fernando Wood,
when the metropolitan police was first formed.
He was very prominent at that time, in the
riotous efforts to thwart the action of the author
ities in placing the metropolitan force in power,
and it was at that time, June, 1857, when the
Seventh Regiment was enroute on its trip to
Boston, that it was ordered to halt on its march
and protect the city hall from threatened riot of
the old police under Matsell. He assumed his
new position as chief to-day, and the captains
of the stations waited on him for orders.

The Cumber Failure.
New York, May 25.—Russell W. Adams
one of themembers of the lumber combination’
tells the Times that all os the firms in the com
bination are insolvent. Their combination of
means is double or three times the amount of
th“ir liabilities, and they possess large quanti
ties of lumber which lies in Canada and in
mills in Michigan and New York State. The
firms in this city are most heavily involved, ex
cepting White & Co., of Albany, and Page &

to be paid every thirty or sixty days, unti1 all is

from many places in tho interior and Canada.

Louisiana Affairs.
The Attorney General this morning received
a despatch stating that the Supreme Court of
Louisiana has just decided two cases of contest
for office under the intrusion act and in both
cases the legality of the officers holding under
the Kellogg government was sustained.
The telegram also said that the opposition in
Louisiana is dissatisfied with Senator Carpen
ter’s speech.
more of the Civil Service.
It is ascertained from those having the best
means of information, that the Advisory Board
at present in session, will encourage the growth
and thus render more efficient the contemplated
reform. They believe after their consultation
with the President and members of the Cabi
net on Saturday, that the administration isde
termined to give the support needed. It was
generally agreed that some modifications are
demanded of the results of experience, by
which, while the changes in detail will be
slight, the main features and scope will re
main not only unimpaired but will beinvigored.
The Board will, in the course of a few days,
complete the work of revision, when the
changes will be made public. Assurance is
given that th* y will contain nothing from
which its truest friends will dissent, while it is
believed that the greatest need is a better in
structed and more discriminating public opin
ion on the subject.

The Iowa Tornado.
A Village Completely Destroyed.
Eiftht Persons Known lo Ilnvc been
Washington, Iowa, May 24. — Additional
particulars of tbe tornado makes tbe damage a
great deal more than heretofore reported. Six
more persons have died, making eight iu all.
There are many others whose lives are despair
ed of. These are all reported within six or
eight miles on the line of the storm. To what
extent the storm raged in other parts of the
county is not yet learned. An enormous amount
of property lias been destroyed.
It is impossible to describe the scene after the
storm passed It resembled a long traci of
country that had been suddenly flooded and
everything carried away; and as if tbe water
had suddenly fallen and left everything iu
complete ruin. The force of the storm was
such, that nothing resisted it. Heavy objects
were carried through the air and thrown to the
ground with such violence as to halt imbed
them in tbe earth. Wagons and farm imple
ments of allkiuds were strewn all around; even
the spokes were broken out of the wagon
wheels. A hog was found pierced through and
pinned to the ground by a spike of timber two
by four inches.
Over 1000 persons from this place visited ihe
scene yesterday, and rendered all the assistance
in their power to tbe sufferers.
A telegram from Sigourney states that at
Lancaster every house but one w as entirely de

many were seriously hurt.
iVIorc Indian Troubles.
St. Louis, May 24.—A special from Fort Sill,
Indian Territory, states that a great excitement
prevails among tbe Wachita Indians, on ac
count of the murder of their principal chief
Isodawah, by Osages recently. The chief was
out bunting alone, and next morning his head
less body was found with a bullet bole through
it, and one hundred yards distant his scalped
head was found. It is believed the Wachitas
aud their allies will immediately take the war
path against the Osages, in spite of all efforts
to restrain them. The deceased chief was a
great friend of the whites. Seventeen years
ago one of his warriors killed a sentry at Fort
Arbuckle, and the chief promptly brought the
assassin’s head to the fort.
The Tcxau Harder.
Brownsville, Texas, May 24.—To-day’s
“Sentinel”in mentioning the various cattle rob
beries committed this month by armed Mexi
cans, places the number stolen and crossed into
Mexico within a radius of sixty miles of this
city, at not less than 1000 head ; while higher
up the river, a proportionate number has been
driven across the frontier.

The Atlantic Wreck.
New York, May 24.—A Halifax letter says
that 428 bodies have been recovered from the
wreck of the Atlantic, leaving 118 passengers
unaccounted for. Nearly a dozen bodies of the
lost cabin passengers are still missing, and al
though all the staterooms have not been exam

will be found in them when entered,as the pas
sengers are believed to have escaped to the deck
when informed of the pending danger after the
vessel struck.
The Cattle-Stealing Kickapoos.
New York, May 24.—A Washington special
states that the Mexican miuister says that

Versailles, May 24.—Tlie Assembly reas
sembled at 2 o’c.ock this afternoon, and after
an energetic speech by Casimer Perier, Minister
of the Interior, refused by a vote of 365 against
348, a motion to proceed with the order of the
day emanating from the Left and supported by
the government. An order of the day propos
ed by the Right, declaring that the present form
of government was not under discussion and
regretting that the reconstruction of tho minis
try did not afford conservative guarantees was
then ^adopted, by a vote of 360 against 314.
Upon" the announcement of the reuslt of the
last vote M. Baragnon, member of the Right,
said that tho supreme interests of the country
required that thegovernment should not remain
silent. His remarks were received with noisy
protestation by the Left. When the tumult
subsided, Baragnon proposed a night sitting.
M. Dufaure, Minister of Justice, ascended
the tribune and declared that France would not
remain a moment without a government not
withstanding the vote first cast. “There
exists,” he said, “a President and the Republic.
The ministers will answer for the maintenance
of order. They would consult with the Presi
dent and agree to a night session.” Tho Left
shouted, “Why will the government thus set
Europe aud posterity the example of this mon
strous ingratitude?”
The Right insisted that the government should
promptly communicate its decision to the As

who had accepted them.
M, Dufaure then handed to M. Buffet, Presi
dent of the Assembly, a message from ’ Presi

been conferred upon him. The readiug of tho
message produced a profou ad sensation in the
Den Charigarnier and Duke De Broylie mov
ed that the Assembly immediately appoint a
successor to M. Thiers. This motion caused a
terrible uproar. Th* Left moved that the res

cepted. The motion was rejected by 368 against
339. The resignation of President Tliiers was
then accepted, f.l. Buffet fruitlessly attempted
to eulogize M. Thiers. The members of the
Left endeavored to secure an adjournment of
tho election of a successor to M. Thiers, hut the
Right insisted upon choosing a President of
the Republic immediately. A vote was then
taken aud resulted in the election of Marshal
McMahon who received 390 votes. The depu
ties of the Left abstained from voting.
A committee was then appointed to wait up
on Marshal McMahon and inform him that be

The committee was headed by M. Butfet, who
upon retiring temporarily handed overtlic pres

Tlio following is telegraphed from Central Asia.
“I have joined the envovs of the Kban of Khi

No. 1 to Tawdia, 300 miles west of Y'aslikend.
Nicholas Comtantinovitcii and Gen. Koffmann
are waiting to see them.”
These envoys went to fort No. 1 to accept any
terms for the Khan, the Russian military pow
ers propose. They have missed Gen. Kauff
man there, hut seem now to understand that
the Grand Duke and General were not pushing
on, hut waiting theircoming to negotiate. Al
though the commanders may thus wait, it is
doubtful if there will he any interruption of the
movement of the troops, since to secure the
fall of Khiva, it appears only their presence be
fore it is necessary. Dissension reigns there.
The Khan is at war with two brothers, and
these only await tlie arrival of the Russians to
surrender the place.
