The prevalence of a large quantity of inferior and dangerous oils in the market, at a eh ap price—many of which are little better than Naptha itself—and the existence of false reports in regard to the Portland Kerosene Oil, renders it a matter of justice to our selves, as well as eafety to consnmers, *hat some no tice should be taken of these facts. Therefore, we again present an ad vertisemeot, and would call atten tion to the high standard o :our Oils. The Refined Petroleitm, the fire test of which is 122; The Port land Kerosene, the fire test of which is 125 degrees Fahrenheit, and often reaches considerably higher; also, we would say, that we are determined to main tain their long established reputation. PORTLAND KEROSENE OIL COMPANY. We quote from chap. 39 R. S. 1871, the title of said chapter being “Inspection and sale of Manufactured Articles.” Sect. 31. Every person and corporation engaged in manufacturing petroleum, coal oil or burning fluid shall cause every cask or other vessel thereof to be so inspected and marked, by a sworn inspector, And if any person manufactures or sells such oil or burn ing fluid not so inspected and marked in this State, or that has not been so inspected and marked as un safe for illuminating purposes, he shall pay a fine not exceeding Five Hundred dollars or be imprison ed six months in the county jail, upon indictments therefor.

From the report by the Bangor Whig of proceedings at Orono on the occasion oi the Centennial Celebration and Dedication oftbe new town Hall, we make tbe following ex tracts: Tbe Chairman then in complimentary terms introduced the orator of the evening> Hon. Israel Washburn jr., who was received with applause, and proceeded to deliver the I historical and dedicatory address. GOV. WASHBURN’S ADDRESS. Mr. Washburn, whose address occupied two hours and a halt, commenced by saying that when in 1606, Capt. Gecrge Weymouth ot the English ship “Archangel” visited the Gulf of Maine, planted a garden at Boothbay, and on the island ol Mouhegan set upja cross in testimony that he then and there, under the auspices and in tbe name of the English crown, took possession of the territory now embraced within the limits of this State, that territory was occupied by two principal In dian nations, to w't; tbe Abeuaquis, having four tribes, and the Etecbmins, who were di vided into three tribes. The largest and strongest of all tbe tribes ot these nations, j was that of the Tarratines or Penobscots.They belonged to the nation of the Etechmins. They were, according to the authority of Judge Williamson, numerous, powerful and warlike, - more hardly and brave than their Western enemies. Less disturbed than tbe the Western tribes, they were also more dis creet, and weie always reluctant to plunge into hostilities against the English. They in habited tbe country upon the Penobscot river and claimed dominion over tbe contiguous territory trora its sources to the sea. Tbeir principal village or seat was probably nevei permanently established at any place until it was fixed at Oldtown Island in tbe early part of tbe last century. Previous to that time it was movable; or parhaps tbe tribe occupied several villages at the same tim«, tor it was a numerous people having a wide domain. As late as tbe period of the Revolution, when it bad been thinned and wasted, it possessed 400 fighting men. B.ut whatever tbe fact may have been iD regard to thepermanent or tem porary character of their villages or the num ber of them existing contemporaneously, there is no doubt that they were always with in the limits of the former town ot OroDO or in its immediate neighborhood. At one time or auotber there were villages near tbe bead of tbe tide in Bangor, Which Williamson thinks was the ancieut “Negus,” and which was know.n to tbe early settlers as Fort Hill. Another was on tbe island at this place where its vestiges were distinct and unmis takable and w hose people also occcupied the tongue of land east ot this hall between the Stillwater branch and the Basin. On both sides of the Stillwater river stone weapons and implements of agriculture have been found iu Urge numbers, some of which in the hands of John Beunocb, jr., and Col. Eben Webster, jr., he had seen. He gave reasons to believe that the site ot the famous village of ‘‘Lett,” was at this place. He thought the preservation of the trihe under circum stances unlike those which had existed else where, the impiovemtnt of its members hi hiibits and education, while living in the im mediate neighborhood of so large a white population, were facts greatly favorable to both parties. He regarded the Tarratines as a peculiar people among the aboriginal tribes ot this part ot the continent. Sturdy and brave, they were never inclined to make war on the English except under the stress of strong provocation,and not unl'requently gave examples of patience under real or fancied wrongs, which would have added a graceful charm to the character of their civilized neighbors. Speaking of the .earlier chiefs within the knowledge of traditon,, Jbe freered to Madock awando, who died an old man in 1068, one of whose daughters was married to Casline the elder—to his Lieutenant, the fierce and crafty Mogg Megone—to Wenemouet who reigned after Madockawando, and was at .Falmouth as late as 1727, where be made a treaty with tjoveruor Hummer—to Moxus, a Kannahis sachem, sometime rniing with Wenemouet, and largely to the great, wise and humanu chief tL.'e “ blue-eyed Orono to bis wisdom anil hnma "HY—uunorui itiuuucaa w wo Americans, u" his journey to Cambridge with three other chit''*, where be armed two days after the battle ot B»«ker r™ira“drTmrt £ orablv received hv *be General Court, to which he tendered the «*»'ices of his tribe in w men ne tendered the England—to his the war then begun aga. andbisfu. death 1801, at the great age * neral, which the venerable Mr,'Ua)I<" *-' rono’ now in her 97tb year, attended. , The first settlement by the whii es Was by Jeremiah Colburn and Joshua Eayres, in 1774’ who built each a house, and together a saw mill in that year; and he read their peti tion to the Legislature of Massachusetts, ilf j 1776 recitng the facts of theii settlement two years before, and certain resolves of that body in their favor. He gave notts and sketches of the early settlers, the Colburns, the Eayres, the Marshes (descendants of John Marsh, the “• Interpeter, ” as he was called, )of the Whites, the Jamesons, the Freeses, the Toartellottes, the Webster,s Treat, Read' Pages, Lunts, Ring. McPhetres, Bennochs, of Antoine Lacbahce and others. He traced the progress of the towns; gave a sketch of the great land speculation in 1835; of tne schools and of the railroads, canals and other works projected and carried out; of many events and occurrences of the years, elections, lawsuits, facetiae, &c., &c., He alluded to the town in the civil war, in which her citizens united with zeal and un faltering purpose to uphold the flag, aud said her quotas were at all times promptly filled by men whose record in the service was in keep ing with the uncalculating patriotism that prompted their willing teuuer ot themselves in defence of an imperilled country. He ap plauded their good sense In paying off the en tire war debt of the town while it wa* e*ay do so, when money was plenty, so that in six months after Lee's surrender not a dollar was unpaid. He spoke of the Agricultural College, which in I860, fortunately he the rSM s.aid’ considering, the locality ot that it i«8 the ‘U felation.to ,he whole State, grade east of th»D £ 1U8titution of collegiate prximi,ty tor Aroostook, a county coma ,dnl i CCUnty °f her of acres of farmingTnds^rJS"8*" “Un?’ tty than any other five counties in New Eng' land; considering the different kin«i« 17 ■1* the College farm! furnishtn^^ £ a great variety of experiments, and consider ing finally the surpassing beauty o! its site and its proximity to what he had ever regard ed as the most charming inland village in the State, so far as outward setting ot landscape and scenery was concerned, it must be con ceded by everv-one that this opinion was cor rect. He rejoiced in the success which under the auspices ot its accomplished President and capable Faculty it has already achieved, and the greater success which it promised. He closed substantially as follows:— This record of industry, stuggle and achievement which we have been examining to-night, is one of which no son or daughter ot Orouo need be ashamed. Reviewing it iu these days of well-earned fruition,—deliv,red tiom the war and its financial burdens, from the debts incurred tor the Railroad and the college, and having seen the accomplishment of your wishes in regard to all; having repair ed, beautified and extended your chuicbes and school houses; haviugas a people been in these later days peculiarly biessed jn basket and store; grateful torso many favors, anil rejoicing as you ought and ilo that your lines have ‘•fallen in pleasant places and that vou have a goodly heritage;-’ having seen your town grow from a population of 1,521 iu 1840, to a number exceeding 3.200 in 1874, with a village numeration of not less tbau 2,600— you decided to celebrate the hundred) anni versary of its settlement bv some token of grateful remembrance of the fathers and mothers who have lived and labored here be fore you and for you, and bv some expression of your good will towards tho-e who shall oc cupy these homes of your care and affection when you, yonrseljes, shall have left them foiever. That pious duty to the past, that benign prayer tor the future, you chose to embody in uo mere n.rm of words, but lather aud better, in this substantial and beautiful edifice, which, with its adequate and admira ble accommodations for the municipal otfic r» of the town—for its Fire Department—and tor the penpjp at large iu this spacious and el egant Hall, (iu which I hope to see at i,o dis tant day a fit representation in the best style of art of the great Chief in whose memory and honor their towu was uamed) passes fro n the hands of the faithful committee un der whose direction and care it has been con structed, to those of the people for whose con venience and by whose liberality its walls have been reared, aud by whom it is now for mally and reverently consecrated to gratelu) and affectionate memories and to confident and elevaiing hopes, while t is dedicated to those worthy and appropriate uses by which the municipal, political, moral, educational and religious interests of the town aud of all its inhabitants, may be best upheld aud pro moted. May it stand, the minister of good and r.ot evil; and when at some future day the pros perous town shall have outgrown its then too nartow limits, anti shall demai.d ampler and grander halls, may its affairs be held in charge by those who shall honor tbe memory ol their predecessors by replacing their work by an other as well adapted to the requirements of the future time, as is this to the needs of the present1 Thus, friends, l have performed, imperfect ly I am aware, but as well as in the limited time at my command, I have been able, the part you assigne 1 me on this the greatest oc casion, since its settlement, in the history ot your town. It has been to me a labor of love and gratitude; (or—il you will excuse a word personal to myself which my feelings will not allow me to sup: ress—1 cannot forger, that lor thirty years this was tbe place of my resi dence, or that from the time when l came here, just out of my minoiity, unknown sgve by a single family connection—that of the late Hon, Benjamin Brown of Vassal boro, for whose kindly and uuwearied interest and friendship I am happy at this time to make my hearttelt acknowledgements—to the day when my circumstauces rather than my will carried me to another home—it was my good fortune to enjoy a measure of confidence and respect above any claim of deserving that I could make', an earnestuessand constancy of triend sbip thrat sustained, defended and held tee round, .at all times and seasons, and most when mc'vt I needed whether in tbe course of my professional life in your midst, or in that wider field of the public service to which’, very largely through your favoring influence, I w as called tor so many years. For these manifold and uufailing kindnesss es—deepened by their perpetual asst ciation with th*e memory ol a gilt the most precious my life has kuown ca>t know—and for the honor you have done ,*c® in the iuvitation to address" you on this ocL>*ion- I niake not merely the return ot the poor ’■erfotmance of this hour, but the lender cf the ’uotoundeat thanks ot a heart which warms in a.*1 *** cesses to the prospeiity, the honor and *.**® happiness ot this beauiilul towD. The address was listened to with close at tention by the large audience, who frequently applauded as the speaker related some anec dote of “ye olden time,’’ or spoke of stirring events in which the sons and daughters of Orono took a prominent part.

Tune—' Auld Lang Syne.” We sing the chiefs of auld lang 83 ue: Aladockawando grave— The Terratine in Philip's time; Megt ne the fiend and knave \> enamuett with kingly face;— All braves w bo bent tbe bow In autnmn's hunt or winter's chase; But most great Orono., Madockawando’s royal hand.

We sing the chief, tbe grand old chief, The chief ot long ago, The corn still sound in memory’s sheaf The high-browed Orono. The audience sang with a will, and thua and thus closed one of the best atraoged and most successful affairs ol the kind it has ever beau our pleasure to attend. Detroit has had a kettledrum though to tell the truth the participators in the revelry do not appear lo have had a very clear ide* of how the thing is managed in more fashion able circles, and they accordingly “ celebip ted” alter their own fashion. The co.ored servants of an out-of-town family wishing to indulge iu a little Ugh life, invited Sambo and his lady, Jim and his£girl, Cicero and Mrs Cicero, Cesar and his wile, and various other young gentleuiau aud ladies ol the „fust families” of the village opposite Windsor, to attend a “ kettledrum ” at the afoiesaid resi dence. The doors were thrown open, the pian i uncovered, the wine decanters brought out, and pound cake with frosting scattered around like tailing leaves in autumn. In short the “culled” visitors at that mansion had a romping time, and before they finished up the carnival of the evening some ol the la dies helped themselves to the wearing appar el, bonnets, ribbons, jewelery, etc., of the la (]„ 1 the house and, not satisfied with these, arU^i . ’°ther feature to the “ kettledrum ” and Droceedeu' to rifle the bureau-drawers, tmuSoXr pfVatPplra i“>be build ing. taking therefrom ra ? be P^ty broke up about davo. nV*Zi mg that it was one of the unit please s,ons ol the season.
