THE HARMONY MURDER. - i Indications that the Deed was Premedi tated-Great Indignation In the Com munity. By Associated Press.) Dexter, Ang. 7 —Tlie murder at Harmony appears to have been premeditated. The mur derer, Eugene Hurd, has for some time lived in the Province of New Brunswick, where Uss than a year ago he married, after which he came to Harmony to reside. Their father died and the two brothers bad bad some trouble about the division of the property and the murderer had made threats that he would shoot Howard. Still there was no open out break as the two exchanged work in hayiBg some. But i»n Friday last, Eugene on return ing from Dexter, turned his horses loose in his brother’s field. Saturday morning early Howard discovered that his grain was dam aged and drove the horses out and homo to his brother’s house. He stood in the yard and his brother came to the door. Here some words ensued, when Eugene leveled a gun and fired. The charge—which was a very heavy one—entering in the region of the heart, killed Howard instantly. Forty-five buckshots were taken from the wound. Also three wounds, apparently caused by slugs, were found. The impression prevails in the community that tho gnn was loaded heavily for the pur pose of doing the deed. The murderer was soon arrested. He made no attempt to escape but informed the officer that he did not know what he was doing. The indignation of the community is intense. The murdered man leaves a wife and one child. CAMP MEETING. A Prelude to the Portland District Meet ing. Old Orchard Beach, July 7.—An informal meeting was held at the camp ground to-day as a prelude to the Portland District camp meeting which commences tc-night. A social and testimony meeting at 8.30 was led by Rev F. W. McKenney of Portland. Three hun dred were present. At 1.30 Father O'Connor of New York City, a converted Roman Catholic priest, gave an address in relation to his experience of conver sion to the Protestant faith. He was listened to with the closest attention. A GUN FROM BANGOR. Formation of a Campaign Club—Address by Hon. C. A. Boutelle.

Arrest on the Charge of Forging Land Warrants. Belfast, Aug. 7.—John L. Gardner, from Ohio or Illinois, charged with complicity in extensive forgeries of United States land patents, was arrested at Northport Camp Ground on Sunday by a government detective and carried to Augusta, where a requisition from Washington awaits him. Boston, Aug. 7.—George B. Perkins, chief operative of the Pittsburg district, U. S. Se cret Service, arrived hero tonight, having in custody John A. Gardner, of Cleveland, Ohio, who was arrested at Northport, Me., tcday, charged with forging and uttering forged deeds for lauds in Missouri, Kansas and throughout the entire western country. Gard ner is a wealthy real estate dealer, and has a relative, who is a preacher, at Ellsworth, Me. He denies all criminal intent, and' says he pur chased the laud in a legitimate manner. Ho is behoved to be the chief of the gang to which Robert L. Lydsay and others, who are now serving sentences, belonged. The prisoner will be taken West tomorrow. Nominations Confirmed. Washington, Aug.—The Senate to-day con tinued the nominations of Col. Charles H. Crane, Surgeon General U. S. A.; F. W. Rice of Maine, Consul at Aspinwall; F. M. Hutchin son Postmaster at Macbias, Me. SWEPT AWAY! Gardiner Again De vastated by Fire. ALL MANUFACTORIES ON THE LOWER 0AM LN ASHES, Besides about 60 Dwel lings. A RUMOR THAT TWO PERSONS WERE KILLED. Total Loss About $300,000. THREE HUNDRED MEN THROWN OUT OF EMPLOYMENT. Gardiner, Aug. 7—A terrible fire is raging in Gardiner, and a good portion of the manu facture P*rt °* the city is already destroyed, together with many dwelling houses. The flames are spreading rapidly. Assistance has been asked from Augusta and Hallowell. At 8 p. m. the fire is raging. [second dispatch.] Gardiner, Aug. 7.—The most extensive conflagration that has ever visited Gardiner began in this city a little before seven this eve ning, in Moore & Brown’s planing mill on Bridge street, near the water. A cluster of manufactories are located on the “lower dam’’ on Cobbosse stream, at this point. The wind bjew the flames away from the main business street into the saw mills and foundries. Ow ing to the protracted drouth and inflammable nature of the buildings, this part of the city was a perfect tinder box, and in a few minutes the row of factories aloDg Bridge street, was in flames. It was found the local fire department was inadequate to.cope with the flames,and help was called from adjoining towns. Hallowell and Augusta sent a steamer, and hand engines from Pittston and South Gardiner were brought into requisition. A high wind now set in and drove the fire with great fury down Bridge street, eating np the tier of tenement houses in its path like melting snow under the tropi cal heat of mid-summer. The fire made a clean sweep on the east side of Bridge street, and then leaped across that thoroughfare into High, Middle and Spring streets, which run at right angles up the hill. These three streets are covered with residen ces, mostly of wood, and many occupied as dwellings by pe&plo of the laboring class. The steamers experienced great diificuity in getting water, and could make no stand a rainst the advancing flames. The fire ate its wav up High street to the Methodist church, which was saved after a gallant fight, then Bwept off to the northwaad, laying low the dwellings along Middle and Spring streets, a full and thickly populated district. The streets were full of men, women and children, hurrying teams and shouting firemen. The flames advanced with great rapidity, leap ing from house to house. Many families saved only tho clothing in which they escaped from their burning homes. Houses were torn down to stop the progress of the fire which was got under control about 10.30, after extending half way up Spring street. [third dispatch.] About twenty acres are burned over, and all the manufactories on the “lower dam” swept away,and some sixty dwelling houses destryed. The entire loss will be over $200,0C3, while the insurance will not reach half that figure. As soon as the ruins are cold rebuilding will be commenced. Large crowds of people flocked to the city to witness the grand spectacle, and numbers of “looters” pi i off their nefariou8 trade. While the blow to the business inter ests of the town will be very severe, yet the chief cause of regret is the suffering which must necessarily ensue to those burned out. Between 300 and 400 men will be thrown ou* of employment for an indefinite period. It is reported an old lady named Cluff, and one man were killed by falling into a hole. These reports cannot be verified in the present condition of things. The great fire in 1857 started in almost the same locality where this originated. The chief sufferers are as follows: Moore & Brown, planing mill, $7,500. Seabury & Fowler, planing mill, $7,5C0. James Nash, furniture factory, $6,CC0. Wadsworth Bros., furriture factory, $6,0C0. Walker & Maxcy, saw mill, $12,113. H. W. Jewett & Co., planing mill aud Baw mill, $15,COO. P. S. Robinson, sash and blind factory and planing mill, $8,COO. Joseph Perry, machine shop, $8,0C3. C. A. Robbins, machine shop and foundry, $8,COO. The insurance, aggregate or individual, can not be obtained tc-night. WASHINGTON. Secretary Chandler's Trip. Washington, Aug. 7.—Secretary Chandler expects to leave here Monday next in the Tal lapoosa to visit the northern and eastern navy yards.

Nominations Confirmed. The senate in executive session confirmed the nominations of Gen. Grant and W. H. Trescott as commissioners to negotiate a com mercial treaty with Mexico.

Articles destined for the interior of Egypt are forwarded by the first favorable opportunity. Report from Admiral Nicholson. A letter from Admiral Nicholson dated July loth gives tbo movements of his fleet. Dur ing tbe bombardment it anchored outside the bar with 180 refugees on board, and on tbe 14th he returned inside the bar and anchored. He then by permiciion of the Khedive re-es tablished the American consulate and sent 1C J marines to guard it, to aid in extinguishing fires and bury dead. On the 14th he withdrew all but 25 of his force who will remain to pro tect the consulate. Too Bad. An amendment offered in the Senate this evening for final adjournment at 11 tc-night was defeated through the inability of the clerk to hear the response of Senator Bayard. Mr. Bayard voted in the affirmative and had bis vote been so recorded the amendment would have been adopted. Miscellaneous. The President has approved the knit goods bill. _ A Bloody Fight.

Mr. Morrill objected to the present consider ation of the resolution in order, rs he stated, to have it lie over for one day under the rule. Mr. Cameron of Pennsylvania then moved an executive session, hut yielded temporarily to Mr. Morrill to make a farther statement. The latter added that as the main business of the cession had been finished the Senate now bad amplo opf. rrtunitv to consider the tax bill. He would now appeal to the other side to al low the bill to come np and either; be voted upon without further debate or at a time fixed. After some debate upon Mr. Morrill’s pre position the matter w?s dropped. Mr. Blair called up the resolution directing investigation during recess into the labor strikes. Adopted with slight amendment. The Nicaraugua bill was made a special order for the second Monday in December, Shortly after 1 o’clock a vote was taken on the pending motion of Mr. Cameron for an ex ecutive session and the motion prevailed.. Legislative businers was accordingly suspends ed and the doors closed.

Mr. Cameron moved to amend by fixing the hour of adjournment at 11 p. m. to-day (Slon dav) Aug. 7th. Mr. Saulslmry inquired of Mr. Morrill whether he intended to call up the tax bill and received au affirmative answer. Mr. Sherman said he would never vote to adjourn until the tax bill was voted upon. Mr. Beck said the tax bill proposed was only a mean attempt to take the bill from tho Senate when it was well known the House had not a quorum. The amendment was lest by a tie vote—yeas 19, nays 19—no quorum. The Senate then adjourned till to-morrow. HOCSE. The House mot at 10 o’clock in continuation of Saturday’s session.

Mr. Bobeson moved to suspend the rales and put upon its passage the bill just introduced by him to reduco taxation. Mr. Mills of Texas demanded the second reading but there were only G2 voting in the affirmative and 8 in the negative. Messrs. Ellis of Louisiana aud Cox of New York raised the point of no quorum.

Thereupon Mr. Anderson withdrew his motion and the house adjourned till to-morrow. THE STAR ROUTES. The Defense Surprise tho Prosecution. Washington, August 7.—Owing to sudden illness Mr. Bliss was not present in the crimi nal court1 this morning. After the evidence of one or two witnesses had been heard Mr. In gersoll announced that so far as his clients (the Dorseys) were concerned he was through, and similar statements were made by all the other counsel for the defence. This unoxpeet • ed action of the defense created considerable surprise, and Mr. Merrick said that as Mr. Blits was confined to his bed by sickness which prevented their nsual consultation, ho would ask for a recess, when he believed he could go on with the presentation of some further evi dence he proposed to put in. Accordingly a recess was taken until 1 o’clock. Alter rececs Mr. Bliss appeared in the court rc )m looking pale and indisposed. He pro ceeded, however, to examine A. I.
