Friday mornhw. oct. 10, 1873 Kv .ry regular attache of the Press is furnished wile u card certificate countersigned by Stanley!. Puilen, Editor. All railway, steamboat an 1 liote managers will eoufer a favor ujjon us by demanding cred utials of every person claiming to represent onr journal, as we have information that several “bum mers” are seeking courtesies in the name of the Press, and we have no disposition to be, even pas tively, a party to such fraud "\\ R do not read anonymous letters aud communi cations. The name and address of the writer are in all coses indispensab e, not necessarily for publication but as a guaranty of good faith. AV i cannot, undertake to return or reserve com munications that are not used. Haiders. As we have before stated, Congress at its next session will have its attention called to a large number of improvements—sufficient, at least, to keep the Government "workship in jobs for many years to come and its tax-gath erers busy in collecting money to pay the ex penses. The south-west, in particular, is preparing a raid upon the publie treasury, having organized a company, not to take stock and pay subscriptions to improve the rivers of that section, but to lobby a measure through Congress. It only requires from two to six millions at present, but once started will requite fifty or seventy five. Among the hair-brained propositions that will doubtless be urged, is that of increasing the volume of water in the Ohio by pumping it out of Lake Erie into Chautauqua Lake, which is 550 feet above the level, and thus supply the Ohio. Mr. Moorebead, an emi iuent engineer, makes this proposition, but there are incredulous people who assert that water so obtained will .cost $1.25 per quart. Such a scheme will doubtless ruin the thrifty business of extending milk by Ohio water, and were it not for the danger of absorption by the way, the commerce oi that river could be more economically floated upon a tide oi whiskey than water from Lake Erie. Some of the schemes proposed are not so chimeri cal as that increasing the volume of water iu the Ohio, but all of them are objectionable on the gronnd that they will never pay the interest of the millions required to complete them, else private enterprise and capital would have lone since undertaken them. Ocb contemporaries in various parts of the State are expresing an opinion that a general railroad law is the most desirable railroad leg islation that the next Legislature can give the State. While there can be no possible objection to such a measure, we fail to see how it would to any extent affect the policy of Maine toward railroads or obviate the troubles likely to grow out of railroad man agement. Had a general railroad law been adopted in 1807 or 1808 it would doubtless have have had a most salutary effect upon the policy of the State and the status of Maine railroad interests would have been very different from the piesent. Then it would have prevented the present consolida tion of all the roads east of here under the management of the Maine Central, if that is desirable, as one of the parties to the consol idation only agreed to it when it found that it could not obtain any legislation where it came in conflict with the other party. While a general railroad law can meet with no pos sible objection so far as the interests of the people are concerned, the time for it to be reailv useful has passed. The frequent defalcations of hank officers reminds the Providence Journal that “while preaching seems to be in vain, it is the duty of everybody by example to protest against the extravagance which is leading to so much corruption. One person may suggest this remedy, and another tha‘, for our financial troubles; none, nor all of them will suffice to put us on solid ground uutil the whole ba sis of expenditure is modified. There are too many expenses in business and in the household which might he contracted. Val ues are put at what they may be ten years hence, we have discounted the future, and everybody almost is going ahead as though the future had. been realized.” “Raw Recruits for Satan” exclaims the Northern Christian Advocate, on notic ing that the industrial college of New York be gins its sixth year with two hundred fresh men. This journal may be styled religious but it is not worthy of the title of Christian. If we mistake not, It is the organ of the church that calls Daniel Drew brother and thinks the cause of true piety can be ad vanced by such institutions as Drew’s Theo logical Seminary, built and supported by the thefts ot the most sanctimonious but keenest rascal on Wall street which amounts to say ing that he is the “wickedest man in New York.” _ The Committee of Seventy which started out in New York two years ago to accomplish a grand mission of reform, has at length vot ed that there is no longer a call for it, and after issuing an address will become one of the things of the past. Fora'ime it did ex cellent service but after a while its leaders fell into office-seeking ways and as a consequence fell from their high estate and lost sight of their noble purpose. The public mind has of late been so en grossed with the financial panics that it has lost sight of the increasing shipments of our products which m answer to the foreign de mand for our productions is doing much to put the couutry in a position of financial in dependence. The shipments of produce from the city of New York last week amount ed to $8,878,130 while for the two weeks pre vious the value of like shipments was about $6,500,000 per week. Ax admirer of ex-President Johnson sug gests that the people at iarge make up the $90,000 that this gentleman lost by the failure of Jay Cooke, by raising by subscription the sura of $100,000. this would be a very good thing for A. J., but there is only one thing that would lead the country to d) so generous an act, and that would be a threat that unless this sum shall be raised for him he will insist on being a standing candidate for every office during the balance of his now uneventful life. The Chicago Intcr-Ocean in noticing the opposition of some of its Western contempo raries to the re-election o: Speaker Blaine, on the ground that he has hitherto been un duly partial to New England in the forma tion of his committees, states that of twenty, six committee^, the Western States had six teen chairmanships, and the Eastern ten. It further shows that the West has its part at least of the members of the leading commit tees. The financial situation is evidently im proving, confidence is slowly returning, the banks in New York are resuming currency payment, the premium on gold is falling and the exports oi produce are unprecedented in amount. It is thought the large amounts of currency locked up will gradually return to circulation within a short space. Yesterdav gold dropped to 109. Current Notes. A noteworthy feature of the Connecticut town elections was the choice in New Haven of a Yale College professor to one branch of the common council, and the Yale College colored carpenter to the other. Capt. Jack has, to the delight of the Chi cago Post joined the “improved order of lied men.” The initiation was unusually severe. The CongregationdUst says that during the recent meeting of the American Board, the chairman, by a very laughable slip of the tongue, referred to the preacher of the occa sion as Professor Julius H. Cccsar (instead of Seelye.) Grant would only make some great n >-■ ake. the paltry agitators of the hour are whispering to each other. But he don’t, a"rt clear-headed action he puts them all to confusion.—Chicago Post. The Cincinnati Enquirer says Pendleton is in full accord with the Democracy of Ohio, but he declines to make speeches ‘ in Its be ofthe Gr^hTbaW^who6 aUVb^efe^t SOTjfW’'"**' j » Last year’s Liberal Republican State Com mittee does not propose to add to the funeral aspects of the campaign in Massachusetts by issuing an] address. They have held two j meetings, and voted to hold their tongues, i ‘"When you have nothing to say, say noth ing.” I tell you, my countrymen, whether you are Democrats or Republicans, that the peo ple of this country ought never to cease to agitato this question until their money is as good as gold, and then they are on a sure rock, au eternal foundation. In all ages and in all countries it has got to be an axiom in financial matters that gold alone is the stan dard of value, and the planetary laws that govern the universe are not mere fixed and absolute in their sway than that law which demands that everything shall be measured by the gold standard, and the very moment you make your paper money as good as gold coin, then you have got a currency that you may live by, die by, and leave to your chil dren without fear or favor.—Senator Sher man. The Daily Gate City, published at Keokuk la., does not believe in the predicted “great public upheaval-’ which is expected to sweep the Republican party out of power. It inti mates that when election time comes round it will be found that the people “don’t up heave worth a cent.” The Brooklyn Eagle is not so sanguine in regard to the results of the Evangelical Al liance as are most people, for it says that “when the Protestant sects lose their indi viduality, they will, in a large measure, lose their Protestantism. And such union as the devotees of harmony hope for is not only not desirable, but it is for several good reasons impossible. The most the alliance can do, and the most probable that its projectors an ticipated it would do, is to make the various bodies agree to differ, and each in its own way make war upon the devil rather than up on its neighbor. There is a point at which human endur ance ceases to be a virtue; and if any man in the United States may be said to have beerr tried to the top of his bent, and hounded to death by journalistic gad-flies, that man is President Grant.—Chicago Inter-Occan. The New York Herald says no person would be foolish enough to argue that be cause a man has political convictions he is ou that accountunfit forthe ofliceofClrief Jus tice. Every citizen who has heretofore filled tiiat position had been previously in political life, and most of them had been recognized leaders iu support of the administration from which they received their appointments Let it be understood, then, that resump tion is now practicable, commercially and po litically. The country sees its feasibility, and is determined upon its realization. Whether business and all our financial inter ests are injured and lacerated in the pro cess depends largely on the attitude of the banking interest. It is possible for the bank ing power to hang back, to be indifferent, to be a dead-weight on the whole performance; or it is possible for it to bring a willing and capacious mind to its solution.—Springfield Republican. We have thus far counted up 9999 labored explanations of the cause of the panic, not one of which resembles the other any nearer than Boss Tweed resembles one of Ra phael’s cherubs.—Detroit Press. The churches will stand in the rank of takers whom the old saw' catalogues with the thief, until they shut their contribution boxes to largesses which they know to be stolen, refuse to build seminaries in the name of the Lord with cash supplied from the till of the devil, and decline to fellowship the rich cheats who devour widows’ houses, and, for a pre tence, make long prayers. Honest men and women will be morally guilty of misprision of felony, while through weak good nature, or lack of c urage, or flabby sentimentality, they condone the offense of the genteel swindler by continuing their friendship with him.—Christian Union. With all due respect for the exalted pur pose aud character of the alliance, we would suggest that Christian communion, even the fullest and freest, hand-shaking, or even praying together, is not what is expected from them at Xhis juncture. It is not simply to find out that they are brethren that they have crime together. That ought to go with out saying. Enlisted soldiers do not spend the time of battle in assuring each other that they have the same captain.—N. lr. Tribune. * Y. M. C. A. Convention. , [Reported for the Pre«s.[ The last topic of the Convention—“Is it de sirable to empioy a State Secretary to labor in the interests of the Association?” was opened by Mr. C. A. Wing, who strongly favored em ploying the services of such a Secretary; weak organizations should be visited and encouraged and places destitute of them should be visited and new Associations formed. Several gentle men followed, after which it was voted to refer the matter of employing a State Secretary to the Executive Com mi. tee. Rev. O. M. Cousins, Chairman of Committee on Resolutions, presented resolutions upon the importance of Associations having rooms and a library; the interdiction of games of chance; pledging support to the temperance cause; endorsing the Sabbath school work as worthy of our aid; of thanks to the citizens of Au burn for hospitality, to the Baptist Church for the use of their house of worship, aud the Maine Central railroad for free return tickets and others, all of which were unanimously adopted. A full house was in attendance iu the even ing. After the devotional exercises, conducted by Rev. Mr. Matthews, an address upon mis sion work hv Cyrus Sturdevaut was listened to with deep interest. In respouse to an appeal by Rev. O, M.Cousins,a collection of 836 29 was taken up. The exercises were continued by Rev. Mr, Martin, who conducted for one-half hour a re vival meeting of much interest, characterized by brief, earnest prayers aDd remarks aud spir itual songs, after which Rev. Mr. Matthews spoke a few parting words, followed by singing “Shall we gather at the River,” when the Con vention adjourned, Nine Associations were represented by 47 delegates, about half the number that were ex pected, if the violent storm of Tuesday had not occurred. Abundant and excellent entertain ment was furnished by the citizens. The Gov ernor elect, Hon. Nelson Dingley, Jr., was dis appointed in not being permitted to meet with the Convention, on aeconnt of a slight indispo sition, hut several of the delegates, yonr cor respondent included, had the pleasure of meet ing him at the residence of his brother. The many earnest temperauce men in the Convention were gratified to witness the fruits of prohibition enforced, where in Auburn, with a population of about 10,000 only two night po lice are employed and none in the day, exoept Sunday. The following telegraphic greet'ng was sent to the Evangelical Alliance, New York: “Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!” H. Department Estimates.—The Washington special of the Boston Advertiser says: The estimates of most of the departments have been sent to the Treasury. Those of the Nuvy are between two ami three millions less than last year, and those ot the war depart ment about the same for all the usual expendi tures. The Secretary will send an estimate for the army, the most important sea-coast de fences arid certain statements in regard to the extent of this work and the sum necessary to complete it. The estimates of the Interior de partment are §1,800,000 more than last year. Of this increase over a miliiou and a quarter is due to deficiencies and increased expenditures of the Indian service and is owing chiefly to the humane policy of feeding instead - of fightiug the Indians. Without this increaso by the Interior depart ment there would have been a much heavier item from the War department for fighting tribes that through the supply of food and clothing have been kept quiet during the entire season. The post-office department will not re pi ire as much by many thousands for the ex tension of the mail service as last year, when the proportion for this branch of the service was nine per cent. The present year it will he only seven per cent. The amount of official stamps used by all the departments will consid erably overrun the appropriations. In the Trea sury department, where the appropriation was five hundred and four thousand dollars, about four hundred and twenty thousand dollars were issued on the requisition for six months. Of the appropriation of six hundred thousand dol lars for the post-office department, nearly the whole has been issued for the same time Of the total appropriation of one miliiou eight hundred thousand dollars for all departments considerably over a miliiou lias been issued. ™ est'mates for the pension list show a de "f half a million.

This office has never before been in as efficient » condition as the figures of the report show. The estimates of the internal revenue bureau will show a very satisfactory decrease and successful work ing of the reduced machiuery for making col lections. Resumption. The correspondent of the New York Times in treating the financial question, says of the gradual rusumption of specie payments: For many years the amount of our circulat ing medium has been in excess of tlie reason able needs of tbe country. It is now claimed, and it seems justly, that the business of the country fully demands its present medium of seven buudred millions. There must .therefore, be uo contraction of this medium. There must be only a substitution of gold for a part of that medium. This is gradual resumption. This is the only time since the close of the war when the condition of our foreign exchanges has permitted a serious thought of the possi bility of such a substitution. Nothing but the great improvement in our situation as regards foreign countries, and the certainty that tor a considerable period this improvement must con tinue in a largely-increasing ratio, renders such a piau practicable to-day. After long suspension, in which values, no longer measured by gold standard, become ir regular and unsettled, an immediate restoration of their true relations is difficult and unequal. It was a saying of that wisest and and most sa gacious of American Statesmen, Albert Galla tin, tbe financial Nestor by whose counsels the country was led through tbe revulsion of 1837 up to specie payments, “that the agony of tlie resumption is far more terrible than tbe agony of suspension;” that it is harder to submit to a loss which may be avoided or postponed, or perhaps shifted to another’s shoulders, to aid resumption than to far greater losses to avoid resumption. The moral tone, once impaired, is with difficulty restored, either in individuals or communities. Fortunately, there is no need of such suffer ing uow. The worst has been rapidly passed. The contraction of values has been sharp and sudden, hut thorough. The deposits line of the New York banks alone has fallen off $51,000, 000 siuce the 13th of September, a contraction of twenty-live percent. There can be no furth er contraction. There will be no further gene ral decline in values. There will be surely an equalization between those which have falieu too low and those which have not yet felt their share of the depression. It may safely be said that no values have wholly escaped. What are we to reap from this sudden restoration of true values? Shall we hold steady where we are, and gradually recover our old financial stand ing by gradual resumption, or shall we drift along in another expansion and another panic, or another inflation? Can there be any hesita tion ? Surely, we shall choose the better path— that which leads to national honor and sure prosperity Tlie long promised day has at last dawned—tlie day when by ten years of unex ampled prosperity, the busiuess of the country has “grown up” to tlie full measure of the cir culating medium. Shall we not now endeavor to harmonize our system with the systems of all other civilized Dations—to return to gold as a standard of values? In alluding to the policy of the Secretary of the Treasury in connection with his policy of retaining the gold in his possession and the large imports of coin from abroad, the writer says: The coin must come, aud gold will fall to par in spite of the Secretary. His brief authority will be powerless to sustain tbe market against arrivals for a market, and none will feel tempt ed to buy gold against such importations as are now promised. The Secretary has been meas ured in the balance aud found wanting. Never in the history of our country has so great an occasion been so hopelessly neglected. What ever other fame the Secretary may achieve that of a finance minister has passed from him forever. When gold falls to par and there is no long er profit or hope of profit in holding it, it will pass from hand to hand as of old. But this is not resumption, nor yet a single step toward it. It can only be held in the currency by the pro vision of a place for its use. This can only come from from legislation. The appeal will be taken from the Secretary to Congress. When this important session is opened there will be found two distinct propositions awaiting its ap proval, and the country marshaled behind the one or the other in columns in which political opinions wifi have ho place. From the one will rise the cry for more inflation, more green backs, from the other a stern demand for a fradual approach to coin. There need be no oubt about the people’s position. Every man who lives by his daily labor—the bone and sin ew of the country, the American artizan, the Irish laborer, the German agriculturist—has an immediate daily interest ,n the return to specie payment; only let it be made clear to them that there is to made no immediate resumption, no contraction and suffering, but only a gradual and careful substitution of coin for paper, con tinued when gold is at par aud money is plenty, arrested when either gold advances or mouey becomes dear, and there can be no divisi ai o‘f opinion. It is now of the greatest importance to fully put before the people the entire feasibility of this plan of gradual resumption, and to destroy the popular-impression that gold prices mean ruin. It is a sad thing, indeed, that the very word “specie payments” has been so used be fore the people, that it has become as much a terror as the red flag to France—a terrible ban ner to he waved before the eyes of the people on every occasion wheu the interests of a class are to be protected or sustained at the expense of the whole. How Anna Dickinson Climbed the Rocky I Mountains.—A plain, closely fitting corsage, short skirt, extending just below the knee, trowsers wide at the bottom, a few inches longer, blue stockings with white arrow worked from ankle up, low quartered shoes, like a gen tleman's Oxford ties. Anna made a govern ment pack mule feel that life had no further charms, for she rode to the top in the same style as her escort did! Mercy! and did she? To be certainly, madame. anil was none the worse, we assure you. Her principal squire seemed to be in excellent humor, and said that she was behaving very well indeed; for Lord lovejus, she has the reputation of being a ter rible scold; and what a voice?

The Michigan Constitutional Convention proposes to solve the jury refotm question by a clause which permits the Legislature to au thorize five-sixths verdicts in criminal cases, or, in other words, to make the finding of ten of the jury equal to the present unanimous ver dict of the entire twelve. On Sunday last, at the service of the Lord’s Supper in one of the Presbyterian churches in New York, the officiating clergy consisted of a Protestant Episcopalian, a Baptist, a Lutheran, and representatives of other denominations, the elements being partaken of by members of various creeds and church organizations, whose union forms the Alliance. The bees in the vicinity of Paducah, Ky, have been taking lessons of their human fel low-creatures and have been led to the conclu sion that there arc other ways of making a subsistence than working for it. They have not paid that strict attention to business whioh is chracteristic of the apiarian tribe, and the re sult is they have not accumulated a stock of honey sufficient to last them through the win ter. l ather Hyacinthe's letter to the Evangelical Alliance is the source of considerable comment. He no longer makes any pretence to allegiance to the Church of Rome. In his new breadth of creed he goes even beyond the Alliunce itself and proclaims faith in Christ as the only es sential of Christian brotherhood. He expresses an ardent hope in the future unity of the Church. Now that the Protestant character of the Evangelical Alliance is fully developed, it is expected that more of the members will make decided attacks upon tlie Roman CathoUg church. _ STATE NEWS.

New Life for ibe Languid. Perfect health is vouchsafed to few. Probably ninety people out of every hundred who call them selves healthy have their “turns” of languor, ex haustion, depression of spirits and bodily pain. At these times a wineglassful of Hostetter’s Stomach Bitters is as refreshing as “the shadow of a rock lu a weary land.” It invigorates and rests the system aud cheers the mind. The effect of the Bitters in cases of nervous debility, produced either by undue physical exertions, over-study, intense anxiety, or any other cause, is wonderfully reviving and invig orating. In fact, this healthful vegatable restorative possesses medicinal properties which entitle it to the rank of an article of prime necessity, and it should lie kept on liaml iu every dwelling, and promptly taaen as a remedy for all the minor ailments as well as for more serious complaints.

GOLDTHWAIT, II MARKET SQUARE. oct4 sntf CONSUMPTION CAN BE CURED SCHENCK’S PULMONIC [SYRUP, SCHENCK’S SEAWEED TONIC, SCHENCK’S MANDRAKE PILLS, Are the only medicines that will cure Pulmonary consumption. Sometimes medicines that will stop a cough will of ten occasion the death of the patient. It locks up the liver, stops the circulation of the blood, hemorrhage follows, and, in fact, clogging the action of the very organs that caused the cough. Liver complaint and dyspepsia are the causes of two-thiids of the cases of consumption. Many are now complaining with dull pain in the side, the bow els sometimes costive and sometimes to loose, tongue coated, paiu in the shoulder blade, feeling sometimes very restless, and at other times drowsy; the food that is aken lies heavily on the stomach, accompani ed with acidity and belching of wind. These symp toms usually originate from a disordered condition of the stomach or a torpid liver. Persons so affected, if they take one or two heavy colds, and if the cough in these cases be suddenly stopped, tbe lungs, liyer and stomach clog, and remain torpid and inactive, and before the patient is aware of liis situation, the lungs are a mass of sores, and ulcerated, and death is the inevitable result. Schenck’s Pulmonic Syrup is an expectorant which does not contain any opium, nor anything calculated to check a cough suddenly. Schenck’s Seaweed tonic dissolves the food, mixes with the gastric juice of the stomach, digests easily, nourishes the system, and creates a healthy circula tion of the blood. When the bowels are costive, skin shallow, and the patient is of a billious habit, j Schenck’s Mandrake Pills are required. These medicines are prepaired by Dr. J.
