The Maine State Temperance Society will meet In Mass Convention in HGONIAN HALL, AUGUSTA, — ON — Wednesday, February 11th, 18 Oj al ^ o’clock A. H., and continue through Wednesday and Thursday. The Maine State Temperance Society is composed of members of all temperance organizations in the State, an* l is designed to be the medium through which they can unitedly act in the use of all honor able measures for the final overthrow of the drink ing system and the liquor traffic. We cordially invite all friends of the temperance cause to meet with us on this occasion, in order to secure a more perfect union; to devise measures to educate the masses upon the drinking system; to strengthen the moral sentiment of the people, upon the drink traffic; to advise upon the question or more stringent enactments for the suppression of drinking and selling intoxicating liquors; to take into consideration the willful neglect and refusal or executive officers of towns, cities and counties to enforce the laws upon the statutes of the Siate. prohibiting the traffic in intoxicating liquors: and to consider any and all questions bearing upon these subjects. . ihe exigencies of the times demand that we should vote for none but honest men and honest officials to enforce the law’s; and that obedi ence to all laws being the paramount duty of all people, they should demand a thorough, impartial and non-partisan enforcement ol law against the dram shop, as well as all other laws for the protec tion of the people, as the only safeguard of our institutions and homes.

THE BLACK LIST. Here is the list in black letters of the men who, by an unhappy accident being in important official positions, deliberately abused their trust, perverted the laws which it was their sworn duty to execute justly and impartially according to their spirit and in tent, who sought by wicked trickery to thwart the will of the people as expressed at the polls aud who not only brought dis grace upon themselves but smirched the fair fame of the State whose officials they unfortunately were. Their names aud places should be known of all men that they may receive the just punishment of being regarded as infamous by all good citizens aud that the rising generation may learn by their example the folly of being wicked. To this list is appended the names of such other men as have taken offices to which they knew they were not elected, and who become equally guilty by taking advantage of the vile conduct of the original malefac tors : GOVERNOR, ALONZO GASU'KLON.LewiMoa COUNCILLORS, FRANK M.

So far this session Congress lias distin guished itself by what it has not done, and has thereby saved the country from the in fliction of some injury even if its want oi action has postponed or defeated some good measures. Not a few mischievous bills have been introduced, and these we shall be glad to see suffer the fate of the royal Yorl .1. _l --Ihona.l na TVinPPfc Wfirf WUiUViJ IU1V1 wv “ — in the Tower. Other bills deserve prompt consideration and speedy passage. Among the most meritorious offthese worthy bills ii that one providing for the inviolability/>! telegraphic communications. For some years now the custom of seizing upon telegraphic despatches and subjecting them to the scrutiny of a legislative commit tee has been a scandal. Everybody depre cates the exercise of the power; many dis pute its right; but in default of expres: statutory provision to the contrary the powe. has been repeatedly asserted to the hardsliij of all having occasion to use the wires. I is contended, certainly with great show ol ' reason, that‘ the fourth amendment to the Constitution, in respect to the right of tin people to be secure in their papers agains unreasonable searches and seizures, applie to telegrams as fully as it applies to corres I pondence transmitted through the mails ; and that a despatch should be as inviolabl i as a letter. The fact that a third person the telegraphic operator, becomes possessei of a knowledge of the contents of the des patch, does not alter the equities of the case l for such knowledge is necessary to trans mission. Yet despite these consideration legislative committees have not hesitated t ® demand from telegraphic companies the er 6 tire number of dispatches passing betwee 7 given points during a specified time, an f have looked through the telegrams at thei £ leisure, perusing and making what use the saw fit of the communications of busines men, of the fond foolishness of impatien lovers, and of tlie interchange of family and social messages. The practice is an outrag eous one, capable of infinite abuse, and should be at once discontinued. No one cares to throw obstacles in the way of the production of proper evidence to further the ends of justice. The only object aimed at is to protect confidential communications by telegraph as confidential communications by mail are now protected. The one is as important and should be as well-guarded a medium of correspondence as the other. In many emergencies it is the only possible medium. The Supreme Court of the United States has decided that letters and sealed packages in the mail are as fully guarded from examination and inspection, except as to their outward form and w eight, as if they were retained by the parties forwarding them in their own domiciles. Tbe constitu tional guarantee of the right of the people to be secure in their papers against unreasona ble search and seizures, extends to their pa pers thus closed against inspection, and wherever they may be. Whilst in the mail they can only be opened and examined un der like warrant issued upon similar oath or affirmation, particularly describing the thing to be seize 1, as is required when papers are subjected to search in one’s own household. No law of Congress can place in the hands of officials connected with the postal service any authority to invade the secrecy of letters and such sealed packages in the mails; and all regulations adopted as to mail matter must be in subordination to the great princi ple embodied in the fourth amendment of the Constitution. Similar protection is asked for telegrams, and it is in order to secure tneir protection, now so heedlessly denied, that the following bill has been introduced into Congress by Senator Saulsbury of Delaware: Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Repre sentatives of the United States of America in Con gress assembled. , , Section 1. That all telegraph messages delivered for transmission to any telegraph company availing itself of the provisions of Title 0 5 of the Revised statutes and copies thereof made by such company at the place of destination, or at any intermediate point, shall be deemed to he private papers of the senders and receivers of such messages, and shall be protected from unreasonable search and seizure ami from production as evidence in individual and legis lative proceedings to the same extent as letters sent by the United States mail. Title 65 of the Revised Statutes of the United States, referred to in the foregoing, is the Act of Congress of July 24, 1866, giv ing to telegraph companies which accept the conditions of the same, the “right to construct, maintain aud operate lines of tel egraph through and over any portion of the public domain of the United States, over and along any of the military or post roads of the United States,” etc. The bill ought to have a prompt passage, and we hope to see every vote in the Maine delegation recorded in its favor. The exposure of the dangerous secret so ciety known as the B. P. L. has created a profound sensation, and honest citizens aie congratulating eacli other that the State government took timely measures to guard the capitol against the attack of these armed bands. The Lewiston Journal puts the membership of the B. P. L. in this State at five thousand, and says the circles have been exceedingly active during the last two months. This statement agrees with the information in possession of the Pbess. The New York Tribune thinks thejMaine conspirators should have taken a few more lessons from their Southern models before they attempted to steal a Northern State. Then their failure would not have been quite so brilliant. Albany Journal: Garcelon starts for Washington this week. If the rule which requires that all dead bodies travel as freight is enforced, there will be no use of looking for him in a passenger car. “That devil-fish with a false wig”, as Denis Kearney calls Mr. Tilden, is reported by his friends to be very indifferent to the Democratic nomination. That is a good story to tell to the Fusionists. The Democrats once stole the State seal of Missouri and kept it eight years; but a Republican government went on all the same. Maine Fusionists may draw their own moral. _ In New York it costs two dollars a year to oppose the third term. That is the an nual fee for membership in the anti third term organization. “Millions for Potatoes, but not a cent for Parnell,” is the platform recommended to Irishmen by the St. Louis Globe. Denis Kearney is said to he bloated to the extent of $70,000. Iowa’s first choice is Blaine. The Capoul Bang. London Correspofidence San Francisco Chronicle. A now style ot dressing men’s hair is raging at prosont in Paris, and has already shown signs of existence in this city. The new abom ination is called the “Capoul bang” from hav ing been first inflicted upon human sight by the reigning favorite tenor in Paris—Capoul. A few weeks ago an employe of one of the Eng lish banks in the city roturned from a visit to Paris, and with his hair cut a la Capoul. Be fore he could be killed he taught the style to a fashionable barber in this city. Slowly but surely, like the advance of all dread infections, the custom has been spreading until there is a great danger tiiat, unless soma warlike meas ures are resorted to at once the presence of tho Capoul bang, accompanied by something in male attire, may soon appear unmolested at theatres and other places of resort. That it may be recognized at sight and frowned down, a detailed description of tho disease is hereby presented as obtained from the barber who is still unmolested, spreading the seeds of contagion. Tho hair is cat short, very short, on the back of the head, and up to tho suture annex ing the occipital witli tho parietal bones. That portion of tho parietal bones and the rear portion of the frontal is left comparatively Ion". The extreme front fringe of hair bor dering the frontal bone and covering the seat of intellect (so called) is cut neither short nor long, but strikes a happy medium between the length obtaining on the occipital and parietal regions. The hair having been properly cut, the work of dressing what of it remains com mences. The short, rear portion is necessarily left uncombed. It is oiled to an appearance ni silk and left parted flat to the skull. Tho cen tral section is then parted with, geometrical cor rectness in the centre and agitated with gen tle puffs, rutiles and tucks. Then tho genu ine Capoul feature of the work is begun with the frontal quarter section. The medium fringe is carefully disintegrated from the lengthier crop of the crown,,ana comDea aown swugui toward the eyes. It will be seen by the osteol ogists who have carefully followed this de scriotion tnat the hair, in its sectionalized con dition represents the auatomical divisions o the skull. Magazine Notices.

French and English Manners. [The Queen.] It is the existence of a traditional code of manners that makes social intercourse in France smooth and exhilarating, and its bright polite, appreciative spirit is the result of train ing, not the mark of insincerity. Manners aro catching. It has been noticed that English people are more genial on the continent than at home, and it is amusing enough to mark the thawing process going on. I remember during my stay at a French hotel, watching thebe havior of a British family at the diurnal gatli" ering at the table d’hote, the gradual unbend, ing of the carriage, the loosening of the locked tongue. A visitor at the hotel fell ill, the English family followed the example of the French and made daily inquiries for the inva lid, and lent him books. Had the scene been laid in England these civilities rnigh t tit ver have occurred; our insular phlegm might have withheld such expressions of sympathy toward one not introduced. The unlucky side of the national trait is that it chills .those who would fain work up against it and seek to establish a more genial and humane relationship between strangers; the notion that their politeness might be construed by the objects of it into an attempt to force themselves upon their acquain tance, and the rebut! this would inevitably meet, repels them. “I am fast becoming as rude as my neighbors. The next time I meet them I shall ignore them as if they were made of thin air!” exclaimed a high-spirited, thor ough little lady, with Celtic blood in her veins, who, having paused once or twice on the stairs ot the lodging nouse to ihuku ruuui iui^iiuh w lady who also temporarily dwelt in this abode, the latter neither hastening her steps or bow ing her head in acknowledgement of the civility. . If the manners of men are losing the cour teous deference that should mark their de meanor toward women, it is, let us admit^ it. our fault. Women are a great civilizing agency of tho world, and if we are indifferent to these same “small sweet courtesies,” then the fountain-head must dry up. There is a story told of General Lamoriciere, who in the famous June days of 1848 was fired at. The shot missed, and the general drew his sword and turned on his would-be assassin, when, seeing it was a woman, lie sheathed his weap on and raised his hat. This story forcibly re curred to me tho other day when in an art studio, where several ladies were painting, a young man entered, and kept his hat on ins head during his visit. Ho no doubt considered the young women assembled not of his set, and therefore unworthy the homage of a hare head. Bell’s Life in London. [From All the Year Round.] It is not many years since Bell ruled the sta ble, and still more tlie pugilistic mind with a rod of iron. The representative of Bell not unfrequently filled the post of stakeholder, or umpire, or referee, or whatever it may he at prize fights and was the only person on tho ground of whom tho ruffians assembled stood in awe. Only once was the respect due to Bell’s representative forgotten. A more than usually blackguardly specimen of a pugilist, acting as second to a brother rough fighting in the ring, not only disputed a decision of Bell, But did there and then strike his representa tive. For a moment tho whole “ring side,” as I hear the ruffians assembled on such occasion s were collectively called, the whole ring side stood aghast; and then public opinion asserted itself, and a thousand pairs ol biceps swelled to avenge the insult. But Bell’s representa tive said “Let tho fight go on,” and it wont on to tho end, by which period tho rash man who had struck him felt a sickening horror creep in" on. The furies were already tugging at his heart strings and he sought everywhere for the injured Bell, who had gone away .quietly wrapped up in his dignity and what he loved to call his “upper Benjamin.” Next day the penitent called at the house of Bell, hut too late—tho fiat had gone forth- liis doom was sealed It seems that his representative on return ing home after receiving the blow iu question, laid the matter before his colleagues, who for a long while absolutely refused to credit the as tounding intelligence. There was of course no precedent, and ingenuity went to work to de vise such a doom for the offender as should make generations of pugilists yet unborn to shako in their fighting boots. At last Bell spake. Tho offender was henceforth dead. No mention of his name should occur even as an advertisement in tho great sporting organ of the dav, and it was so. The man was forgot ten in a twelvemonth, and vainly haunted the liars ot the sporting public houses at which it had uroviottslv been his wont to describe him self as “ready or “to bo beard 01. men knew him not. It was of no use bis wanting to fight anybody. No brother pugilist would fight a man whose participation would prevent Beil from taking the slightest notice of the combat. He tried sparring at benefits; his name was always excluded from tho list. Ho tried to get up a benefit for himself. The ad vertisement was refused. He was dead as Queen Anno. What became of him is not known. It is supposed, however, that ho was at last driven to extremities, and went back to work at his calling, for the world pugilistic know him no more. A Sturdy Emperor. (Pall Mall Gazette.] Nicholas had an imperial way of meeting dan gers, he marched straight up to them. One day he heard that a market riot had broken out, and that the populace had risen against tho inspectors and 'lie “men in blue,” or gen darmes. The Czar jumped into his sleigh, drove straight to the scene of tho conflict, har angued the rieters, and called upon the ring leaders to give themselves up. The ringlead ers surrendered without a murmur, and were probably all transported, for the Czar was tic sentimentalist, and showed little maguanimt itv in dealing with rebels. On another occa sion Nicholas heard that a professor of tho University of St. Petersburg was conspiring against his life, proof of this offence having been obtained through letters seized at the post office. The Czar wrapped himself-tn hit furred cloak and set out on foot to call upon the professor who almost swooned at tliesiglii of him. “Shut the door," said the Emperor quietly, as lie walked in. “Tell me who you: accomplices are and give me all your papers or I shall have you knouted.” A Sovereign o; tiiis sort was quite fit to hold iiis own over £ nation of slaves;and it is no wonder that the homage bestowed upon him was always mosl fulsome. Tile Russians felt that they had in Nicholas a ruler who did not fear them, wlic know all their weak points, and was, in fact, their master. Alexander II., unfortunately for himself, began his reign by estranging the nobility; ami when ho had made himself popular with the lower classes by the emancipation of tho serfs, lie tried to get reconciled to the aristocracy by keeping down the people. This vacillating polioy pleased nobody; and now the Czar i. trusted neither by the upper nor the lowei class. Tho former think him weak and tin latter disingenuous, whereas he is simply be wildered; and yet tho name of Czar has sucl magic in Russia still, that if Alexander II. hat the nerve to show that he did not care for as sassins the attachment of his people wouh probably afford him a better guard against tin Nihilists than any which the police can fur nish. It all comes to this, that in a despoil state a sovereign must prove that he seta ligh store by his life: when lie is self confident hi people will confide in him; when lie trembles or appears to tremble, his subjects will fee their faith in him shaken, and will not tliinl his cause .worth serving, since he himself seem to distrust it._ ' Rest. It is work, work, work with us, until veril; it is a wonder that the dullness which was pre dieted for that figurative “Jack”, if he laborei ceaselessly and never played, has not swampei the nation in imbec ility. A certain einincn physician maintains that rest and activit; might be aptly compared to two sentinels wh have between them the duty to perform o guarding a camp or fortress. They must tak charge in returns—when the one goes off tin other comes on. Were activity to remain to long on duty, tho heart would flutter and fai the brain would reel, and tho sentinel dro dead of fatigue; on the other hand rest migl remain long enough on guard to drop asleej Thus even rest might be overdone, and cqi i duce to sloth, ennui, and atony of the brail And yet how many of the hundreds of thou; 1 auds in this great city, who possess such vita • camps or fortresses, think it necessary to loot out for the welfare of their sentinels? hot ■ eiguers regard us with awe and wonder; the say that the rush and bustle of tho new wort sets them wild. A European rests when it i - necessary; an American works when it is ui necessary. There may have been some excus for this tension of exertion while the countr J was as yet unreclaimed wilderness, aud tli s inroads of nature and savages had to bo coi i, sidered; but now that the nation is upon n feet and, to use a vulgarism, almost ‘ rut itself” this stress of effort is as absurd as it * disastrous. We do not for a moment doub 1 that Young Americans will coincide with n upon tho question of wholesomo recreation; is prejudice and persons of remote nativit > with whom wo have to battlo. Customs wine s are destined to affect communities and infli ence established usages must be introduced b ’ the elders. Yet a man who lias worked all li 1 life anil retires to the discussion of the re i and an enjoyment such as an ancient horse mi experience when, halt and blind he is turnc i into a blasted pasture, will say that what h 1 generation lived through will not prove tc '> severe for succeeding generations. Possibly 1 f may admit, if he be of a liberal turn of mini j that years ago, before he lost his strength ai spirit, he might have recruited himself; but 6 is now too iate. It is never too late to rest j 3 diciously; vitality is a crescent forco unto tl very end. Breutano’s Monthly. In Mediaa Res. “Huine have greatntss thrust upon them.” That is precisely what has happened to our little city of Augusta. Sho awoke a few morn ings ago and found herself /n-famous. As wo Augustans sit at our coffee, the great New York and Boston dailies before us, with their darning head-lines and startling announce, ments, “Intense Excitement Prevailing,’’ “Tho City Quiet To-Day,” etc., wo wonder what city they are “alluding to in their remarks.” The country ought to know that tho people of Maine get mad, now and then, in a decorous, orthodox way, but excited—never. I have walked the streets and conversed with the “masses” quite as much as was becoming in a “wicked Maine clergyman,” and am bound to depose that the aforementioned masses have simply “got their grit up,” and have sworn by the gum on their great pine-tree, “this thing shan't go through." It must be admitted that this oath for confirmation was uttered with firmly adjusted molars, and a certain flinty ex pression of the eye which, in Maine, signifies that something or somebody is in extremis, or about to bo. In this case it has proved to be our Fusion brethren. At this moment, net many rods from my study, is assembling a for lorn body of men to enact the one or two re maining scenes of a play that began in deep tragedy, but, in violation of all rhetorical and poetical ru’i ■. is ending in a broad farce. They arc playing at Legislature, while we Re publicans, “wicked clergymen” and all, stand round about laughing at them. Without a quorum, without a treasury, without an execu tive officer, thero they sit, helpless, conscience stricken, covered with ignominy, a gazing stock for gods and men. It is an ill wind that blows nobody any good, accordingly, we “Maine clergymen” have been casting about us to discover the good that this “Sarsar wind of death” may have dispensed. First and foremost we have observed with joy the sweeping revival that has passed through me euiwruu Miuiiuiuo va ~ .. brethren. What carefulness it lias wrought in them, what clearing of themselves, what in dignation, yea, what vehement desire, yea, what zeal, yea, what revenge! Who would not be a country parson in Maine to be lectured by the Boston “Post" and the “Globe”! We innocent clergymen, seeing that poor old Gar celon, his Council and his co-parceners, repre senting neither wealth, culture, social or polit ical influence, religion or common morals, were engaged in a huge villainy, did lift up our voices, like faithful watchmen, as we sup posed. When, lo, gentlemen In Boston, New York, the middle and the far west, even from the Pacific coast, began to pour their “sweet ness and light” upon us. We who were upon the ground and knew our men (I speak where of I do know) were greatly perplexed to learn that we were making war upon the very elect. These foreign protestations breathed such pi ous zeal for “the purity of our clerical robes," for “the honor of God’s holy house,” for “the dignity of our sacred calling,” that our eyes were opened to a fact which this ill wind, a regular down-easter has cleared to the whole country. Whatever may be said of the Dem ocratic party, we “Maine clergymen are con vinced that Democratic editors, in the lump, are very disinterested, zealous, devout souls. We ministers commit our little crusade to his tory backed by the decision of the Supromc ° Another thing wo have learned from the wind alluded to above is that wickedness af ter all, is not as “smart” as goodness. *» hen we first set out to corner these wily gentlemen it seemed very much as if wo had hunting in a stage-coach. While wo were lumbering along the king s highway in the good old Constitution, these nimble sinners went skipping away, ’cross lots, over law and gospel. We thought the decision of the Su preme Court would head them off, but they “took it” as lightly as a fox would take a stone wall. But they were too smart for each other. First “eminent counsel” collared the poor old Governor on his way to Portland, brought him, vi et armis, to the State House, compe led him to submit the subject to the Court. Then this same poor old Governor thought he would trv his hand without “eminent counsel, and with his expiring executive breath appointed as commander-in-chief our brave President of Bowdoin, Goneral Chamberlain, thus, at one fell swoop, turning the conspiracy bodily over to the grasp of lav., ''as ever a neater bit of poetical justice.' So, according to Carlyle, Garcelon “being a nonentity van ishes into the great inane,” and Chamberlain being a man takes the neck of this bogus legis lature between his thumb and huger, anil says, “Walk softly and circumspectly, gentlemen, or off goes your head.” , . . It is not surprising that this conspiracy is be ing strangled by the slow and sure process of law when you consider what meu have had it in hand. Mr. Blaine, in perfect health, im pressing you always as a “strong man to run a race ” fruitful in resources, relentless m his grasp of details, patient, vigilant, untiring, move of the conspirators, and by his masterful leadership and inspiring magnetism has kei t the Republicans steadily and courageously at their work. Often in the councils is seeu the Romanesque head of ox-Senator Lot M. Mor rill, that man of pure gold, who always stands by “the realities” with Spartan heroism, rime would fail me to tell of his broad-shouldered, ox-hearted brother, Gov. A. P. Morrill, of our loyal Congregationalist ex-Gov. Dmgley, ex Govemors Connor and Chamberlain, and our dashing leader of the House, Eugene Hale, and back of all these the “wicked Maine min isters” ready to extend “the benefit ot clergy. Augusta, Me._H- EcoB’ New England Mines. A Portland letter to the Boston Advertiser says: The rich discoveries of precious metals recently found in Maine are exciting a deep and wide-sproail interest. The bare mention of ricli mineral deposits would have caused a , few months.ago an incredulous smile; but that the rocky coast of Maino protects vast beds of silver, gold and lead is now proved beyond a doubt, and capitalists arc fast realizing^ that it is not necessary to go into the far \V est in search of safe mining investments. The busi ness men of Portland were very slow to bc licve that any paying mines could he found m tlieir State, owing to the fact that many Maine men had lost heavily in Western mines, but to day many of her wealthiest and shrewdest merchants arc heavily interested in the Acton mines, situated in the town of Acton, about ono hour’s ride from Portland on the Roches ter Railroad. There are now four mines in Actou controlled by Portland parties-tlie Acton, Forest City, Portland Actou and Bos ton Acton. The last assay from the Acton mines was of GOO pounds gross ore, giving $45 in silver, the net profit of w4iich would he about $56. In addition to the silver there were valuable quantities of galena an l other : minerals. Further cast in the State are the ■ mining regions of Blucliill, Gotildsborough, 1 Sullivan, Clierryficld and Franklin. These all i contain first-class mines; among them may be mentioned the Bluehill, Clark, Atlantic, Sul 1 liyan, Bisbee, Preble, Favorite, Meraucy and Grant, all of which have strong organizations and heavy capital. On the shore of Taunton r in the town of Franklin is a district called - Egypt, which is very heavily mineralized, and l in which are several fine mines, noticeably the l Robert Emmett, Hagan and Clark. The lat ter, on a surface assay, gave a total of over S42 1 in silver, lead and gold, which is unusually high for an assay taken from the surface, and > as the cost of extracting the metals is hut a . few dollars a ton it must leave a handsome 1 profit, with a prospect of rapidly increasing as lUC aiiaiu m *«n v»v«. *•* - - -- . ..i > there are also some very lino mines, among d them the Mineral Hill, situated in East Wake , field, and the Ammonousuc and Gardner p Mountain copper mines in Bath, in the Gard t ner Mountain region. These are all consider ed first class mines, and the stock is gradually rising. Some of the heaviest owners of Am monoosuc confidently expect that it will reach i- par within a few months. To suppose that all l the Maine and New Hampshire mines are : “bonanzas” is foolish, but that the large ma jority of them will he dividend paying mines j is unquestionable. It is a subject that is rap 1 idly attracting the attention of business men, 3 and the Portland Mining Exchange is receiv - ing a great many letters of inquiry from all t) over the country. The parties at the heau ol y these "mi nes are business men of well known u ability and integrity, and it is not proposed l- that they get into the hands of speculators, s but, if possible, to push them through to the s place they deserve, that of being great bullion s producing mines. s William Marion split his brother J< hu’s 1 skull in Brooklyn Monday night and fatally ^ wounded James Fleming in a whisky fight.
