The following is the official return of the rotes for Governor and Congressmen at the late election as sent to the Secretary of State’s office by the town clerks: FOR GOVERNOR. Bobte.72,724 Planted.63,852 Chase . J 302 EoatU... 395 Vinton. 270 FOR CONGRESSMEN. Republican. Beed ...72,925 Mvglsy.,.73,017 Boutelle...... .72,386 MUliken.72,495 Fusion. . .63,564 lhing. 63,722 .63,381 Murch.63,668 0reenback. Eaton. 1,280 Kallook. 1,276 Quttj . 1250 Averill. 1,273 The vote for Nash and Stickney is report ed as about the same as Vint m’s, and Stone probably has substantially the same. Ding ley was on the Vinton ticket, not, however, by any desire or even consent of his own, and runs somewhat ahead of the Republican ticket. Reed also runs ahead of the ticket. Robie runs full up to the average of the ticket. Contrary to gene-al expectation, Thing leads the Fusion Congressional ticket, Indicating a considerable “Granger” vote, as he was considerably cut by city Demo crats. Murch has the next highest number on that side, while Dane, who was altogeth er too good for his company, comes third of the Congressmen and failed to get as many rotes as Piaisted, Thing or Murch. Vinton’s rote is a most pitiful exhibition, considering the flourish of trumpets from Fusionists with which his enterprise was inaugurated Maine is evidently not yet prepared for the reign of cant and pretense. Solon Chase leads his tieket handsomely, and leaves every body with the conviction that he is thorough ly sincere and honest, however badly in error he may be. The whole vote reaches the enormous aggregate of 138,543, a figure utterly unprecedented in Maine by any Con gressional vote and excelled by only one Presidential vote. There seems to have been no excuse for the disastrous railroad accident that oc curred in New York city Friday. According te all accounts it was the result of a singu larly flagrant piece of negligence. The ex press train from Montreal having broken down and blocked the main up-track, it be came necessary to utilize anoiher line, and it was of course imperative that the trains ordinarily using the tracks thus extraordina rily occupied should be notified of the change which had been made. It was be cause this was not done that the collision took place. Whether the engineer upon the train which had the right of way could have prevented the accident by proper vigilance is questionable, but it was the duty of the brakeman of the forward train to go back and give due warning that the road was npt clear, and his omission to do so caused the collision. Happily the loss of life was not so great as was at first supposed, but that is a poor consolation for the suflerers or for the friends of those who were killed. North Amebican: Captain Payne and Ms accomplices in the invasion oi the Indi an Territory have been released from Fort Smith, and are expected to answer civil suits for the recovery of penalties in Novem ber. As it is suggested that Judgment will probably be obtained by default, it will oc cur to many persons that it is a very lame and impotent conclusion to p. jceedings in regard to repeated and unwarrantable out rages. The Indian mind can hardly be ex pected to grapple with such legal subtleties, and therefore it will not be surprising if the untutored savages should adopt lynch law toward any future invaders. North American: There must be some thing radically wreng with the Fire Depart ment of Sidney, New South Wales, when a large building, such as that in which the ex hibition was being held, can be burned down before any of its contents could be saved. It is estimated that property to the vaW ue of over two million dollars has been destroyed, and now the question will arise, who is to compensate the losers? Unless the State takeB care that they are compensated, manufacturers will not be very well disposed toward such exhibitions in future. The re-election of Hon. S. A. Holbrook as State Treasurer should be made as a mat ter of coarse. The Constitutional limitation of five years as the term of consecutive ser vice of anyone as Treasurer has fixed that period as the practical term of that office. Mr. Holbrook’s markedly able discharge of his official duties makes it specially fitting that the custom should be observed in this case. He has held the place but three years and is fairly entitled to two years more, while the State should be glad of the oppor tunity to secure his services for the regular period fixed by the organic law. The Asia, lost in Georgian Bay, was sail ing without the required authorization; there is no evidence that the required life saving appliances were on board in full quantity; and had there been a license, it would not have covered the number of per sons who were on board. The captain was illiterate *nd below the grade of capacity de manded by his responsible position. The Montreal Herald gives as its conclusions these statements: The iuspectlon of the boat was a sham, and the law, as it stands, provides only for a sham inspection. Constantinople boasts of Hod Bey, a Turk, said to be one hundred and twenty years of age, and much venerated. He was formerly active in politics. There is hope for Arabi yet; if he should happen to live to the present age of Hod Bey, he will doubt, lest by that time be venerated, and with a similar record. Just at present there is not any veneration to spare for Arabi, public feeling in Alexandria taking the form, of execration. _ Detroit Post: Julius Houseman, the Fusion candidate to Congress in the fifth district, has written a letter of acceptance in which he speaks very highly of the na tional bank currency, declaring it to be the best currency we ever had. Some of the Greenbackers who are asked to support him are wondering if that is really the correct Greenback doctrine. OHIO Will elect minor State officers and Congressmen on Tuesday, Oct. 10th. On the same day Georgia will elect State offi cers, but not Congressmen. On Tuesday, Nov. 7, all the States which have not previ ously voted this year, will elect State offi cers. The contest in Ohio is very sharp, tha liquor questio »g the great issue. Was Weymouth at Pemaquid? In a communication that appeared in the Pkess Sept. 18, W. G. says: “Weymouth mentioned ‘the little river of Pemaquid’ in 1605. It was Pemaquid from which he sailed fer England direct, with five of the natives whom he had kidnapped.” The reader would infer from the quotation marks that Weymouth had left some such rec ord. No such record has come down to ub. Moreover, Rosier, who accompanied Wey mouth on his voyage, and kept a narrative of its events which he afterwards published, makes no such record. The quotation is from Strachey, who in a brief account of Wey mouth’s voyage, written it is thought in 1618, says, Weymouth discovered “many convenyent places upon the mayne, and isles and rivers, together with that little one of Pemaquid.” It was not Weymouth, therefore, who mentioned the “little river of Pemaquid,” as W. G. says, but Strachey, Equally erroneous, it seems to me, is the re maining part of the quotation: “It wasPtm aquid from which he [Weymouth] sailed for England direct, with five of the natives whom he had kidnapped.” Rosier, in his narra tive, [Mass. Historical Collections, voh 8, third series, pp. 153,154,J makes it clear that Wey mouth, after his discovery of the river which he ascended, returned to Pentecost Harbor, and from that harbor sailed for England. Now if, according to W. G., Weymouth sailed from Pemaquid for England, then Pemaquid Har bor must be Pentecost Harbor, than which a more amazing statement could hardly be made. In no respect does Pemaquid Harbor answer to the description of Pentecost Harbor as given in Rosier’s narrative. The latter was a harbor formed by islands, and had four entrances. This fact alone is sufficient to disprove the statement that it was from Pemaquid that Weymouth “sailed for England direct.” But W. u. is unwilling to admit that he is in error, and gives his authority. In reply to a communication in the Press of Sept. 19, enti tled “History in Haste,1’ he says: “In the spare hour before leaving I hunted up the fifth volume of the M. H. Society’s Collection*, knowing that it contained two articles oa Pem aquid, the principle one entitled Ancient Pemaquid, an historical review, prepared by request of the Maine Historical Society, by J. Wingate Thornton of Boston, April 1857 . . . In his papor on Pomaquid Mr. Thornton says page 156, ‘Weimouth who in 1605 especially noted that the little river of Pemaquid interes ted some of the best minds in England. Wey mouth seems to have sailed for England from Pemaquid direct:’” The quotation will be clearer to the read er if we give it as it stands in Mr. Thornton’s paper: ibe report* by Uosnold and Fnng, and by Weymouth, who in 1606, specially noted that the little river of Pemaquid,” interested some of the best minds in England. Weymouth seems to have sailed from Pemaquid directly for England, carrying ayray five of the savages who were on his deck for traffic.” In the first sentence there is manifestly a typo graphical error. It will be seen that Thornton does not use the word mentioned. It is possi ble that Weymouth may have noted "the little river of Pemaquid” in an exploring excursion that he made in one of his boats "in which he coasted five or six leagues about the islands ad joining” Pentecost Harbor; but as he speaks only of islands it hardly seems possible. It is certain that he did uot visit Pemaquid in his ship. It will be noticed that W. G.’s state ment, for which Thornton is made the authori ty, is changed from the latter’s “Weymouth seems to have sailed,” to “It was Pemaquid from which he sailed.” But “Common Sense,” in the Pekss of Sept. 21, comes to the support of W. G. and Thorn ton. “Common Sense” is R, K. S. the proof of which by a singular mishap came into my pos session yesterday. In support of Strachey’s statement he says that Strachey “knew the names of the rivers and places as given by the natives which Weymouth in his narrative of the survey of 1605 says were purposely omitted to be reserved for the benefit of following Eng lish voyagers together with a statement of the exact latitude and longitude of his discoveries; his clerk Rosier, therefore, made no record of any aboriginal name of island, river, harbor or place visited, or of the savages he met. Strachey’s record as historical authority is therefore of the highest credibility, and when he says Weymouth with ‘pains’ he took in discovering the ‘little River of Pemaquid, with isles and rivers and convenient places up on the mayue,’ the natural legitimate and con clusive suggestion, is that he visited the Pem aquid River with his ship- as much as he did the other rivers, isles and places mentioned.” The same error is here made by R. K. 8. as was made by W. G. in his communication of Sept. 18. Weymouth prepared no narrative, and so could not have said what is here attrib uted to him. Rosier says nothing of the kind. What he does say in the preface to the “True Relation,”—and the language should be care fully noticed,—is this: -ueing employed 10 inis voyage Dy tne itignt Honorable Thomas Arnndel, Baron of Warder, to take due notice and make true report of the discovery therein performed: I became very diligent to observe (as much as X could) what soever was material or of consequence in the business, which X collected into this brief sum mary, intending upon our return to publish the same. But he soon changed the course of his intendments; sad long before our arrival in England had so far engaged himself with the Archduke that he was constrained to relin quish this action. But the commodities and profits of the country, together with the fitness of plantation, being by some honorable gentlemen of good worth and quality, and mer chants of good sufficiency and judgment duly considered, have at their own charge, (intending both their private and the common benefit of their country) undertaken the transporting of a colony for the plantation thereof; being much encouraged thereunto by the gracious favor of the King’s Majesty himself, and divers Lords of His Highness’s Most Honorable Privy Coun cil . After their purposed designs were con cluded, I was animated to publish this brief relation, and not before; because some foreign nations (being fully assured of the fruitfulness of the country) have hoped hereby to gain some knowledge of the place, seeing they could not allure our captain or any special meu of our company to combine with them for their direc tion, nor obtain their purpose, in conveying away our savages, which waB busily in prac tice. And this is the cause that 1 have neither written of the latitude or variations most exact ly observed by our Captain with sundry instru ments, which together with his perfect geo graphical map of the country he intendeth hereafter to set forth. I have likewise pur posely omitted here to add a collection of many words in their language to the number of four or five hundred, as also the names of divers of their Governors, as well their friends as their enemies; being reserved to be made known for the benefit of those that shall join the next voyage. But our particular proceedings in the whole discovery, the commodious situation of the river, the fertility of the land, with the profits there to be had, and here reported, I re fer to be verified by the whole company, as be ing eye-witnesses of my words, and most of them near inhabitants upon the Thames.” One has only to compare this statement with the abridgment of it made by K. .K. S. in or der to see how utterly the latter failed to get Hosier’s meaning. Hosier insists upon the ac curacy of his narrative so far as the whole dis covery was concerned. What he withheld was the latitude or variation, the vocabulary of In dian words, and the names of Indian chiefs which were obtained from the captured Indi ans. Bat blracbey, adds R. K. 8., is supported by Sir Ferdinando Gorges, who says: “Wey mouth happened into a river on the coast of North America called Pemaquid, from whence he brought five natives, all of one nation, etc.” I do not know from what this quotation is taken. I suppose, however, that it is from the Brief Narration of Sir Ferdinando Gorges (M. H. Society Collections, Vol. 2, p. 17) in which I find the following: “And as it pleased our God that there hap pened to come into the harbor of Plymouth (where I then commanded) one Captain Wey mouth that had been employed by the Lord Arundel of Wardour for the discovery of the northwest passage; but falling short of his couree happened into a river on the coast of America, called Pemaquid [the Penobscot] from whence lie brought five of the natives.” Volume 2 of the M. H. Collections was pub lished in 1847. I suppose no one now would say that the river Weymouth discovered was the “Penobscot. “According to Rosier this river was in breadt. a mile, sometimes tliree-quar ter, and half a mile at the narrowest.” Enter ing it in his ship Weymouth sailed up “six aud twenty miles.” Rosier says: “As we passed with a gentle wind up with our ship in this river, any man may conceive with what admiration we all concerted in joy. Many of our company had been travellers in sundry countries, and in the most famous rivers, yet affirmed them not comparable to this they now beheld.” Now all hitherto have held that the river to which Sir Ferdinando Gorges refers was the river which Rosier here describes. No, writes R. K. 8. to the Prbss; it was the little river of Pemaquid! If there are “modern speculators in historical novelties” R. K. S. must be one of them. H. S. B. Portland, 23 Sept., 1882. Real estate: The methods of justice are sometimes peremptory. Judge, to proposed surety—“Are you a freeholder of this country?’’ Surety—“Not exactly, your honor, but the next thing to it; I’m a pew-holder.” Judge (impa tiently)—“What I want to know is whether you can swear that you are the owner of unin cumbered real estate?” Surety—“lean.” Judge —‘■Where is it?’ Surety—“In Greenwood cemetery.” Judge (irascibly)—“Ten days for contempt of court.”—Brooklyn Eagle. Au obliging landlady: A guest at the table of a boarding-house on the Catskill mountains, who was about to tackle a dried apple pie, ad dressing the landlady, said, “Do you think you could furnish me with a bit of cheese?” “I don’t know whether there is any,” she an swered in a cast-iron tone of voice, “but if you will have a little patience I’ll send a waiter to look through the mouse-traps and Bee,”— Brooklyn Eagle. Streets and Their Jiames. The System in Vogue in London and America Contrasted. [Pall Mall Gazette.] The accounts of the fierce debates in the Paris Municipal Council which reach us from time to time show what an interest the naming of streets has for our neighbors. Periodically IntransigeautB in that assembly attempt to abolish the name of Rue Bonaparte, and as often the Government puts its veto on the at tempt; but in other cases they have been more successful, and the Boulevard Prince Eugene has become Boulevard Voltaire, while the Rues de Morny and Abbatucci and Cambaceres have been radicalized. When one looks in London for the names of famous men, the re sult is disheartening. In vain does one seek for Voltaire, Newton, or Galilee, Burke, Fox, or Sheridan—to take half a dozen names at random. Although in a great many instances tneir places of abode are known, and the Socie ty of Arts endeavors to perpetuate them with plaques, yet the streets themselves bear other names. Shakespeare, it is trne, has a terrace at Halloway; Lord Beaconsfield a street in Puts ney, and Mr. Allsop a mews near Regent’ Park; but the Williams and Charleses and Ed wards have it all their own way. iu suuw in!h tuce are tutrty-six unaries streets, twenty William streets, eighteen' Queen streets, seventeen Duke streets, twenty eight King streets and seventeen Edward streets is enough to call the most apathetic Londoner to a sense of his position; bat to find that each of these names has its satellites in the form of a proportionate number of “squares,” “terraces,” “roads,” "gardens,” “buildings,” “courts,” “places,” "groves,” and even “villas,” is terrifying. Too add to his dismay, there are at least three Bond streets besides tbe only possible Bond street, and hall a dozen Park lanes. Added to these the Park streets, the Chapel streets, ana High streets and New streets bring up a most for midable array; while the prefixes of north, south, east and west, old and new, seem to have been specially invented to puzzle the pub lic. Whether the most experienced cabman has ever visited the whole ef the King streets or Charles streets is doubtful. It would prob ably take a man twenty-four hours’ hard walk ing to visit the thirty-six Charles streets, if, indeed, anybody were likely to undertake such a journey. If the object of street nomencla ture was not convenience to the public, but the imparting of the knowledge of bow house property is divided in London or a certain amount of antiquarian knowledge, this would be admirably met. The domains of the Bed ford, the Westminster, the Camden aud Salis bury families are all marked out with consid erable distinctness. The Strand, Ludgate, Hatton-garden, Ely-place and hosts of other names recall traditions which would otherwise have perished long ago. Another great griev ance is that every street of considerable length is named in at least half a dozen distinct ways with half a dozen numberings; sometimes the two sides of the street are named differently. The numbering of the Strand is, perhaps, the most distracted lesson that a human being can learn. While the people who insist on indicat ing their houses by Roman numerals are tbe despair of every cabman, then come, to make confusion worse confounded, the individuals who have an unfortunate mania for living in villas, and a repugnance to be classed as No. 24 or No. 25, like their fellows. The magnificence of tbe name, too, it will be found, is generally in proportion to the misery of the structure; and these isolated Alma lodges, Balaclava vil las or Alipore bungalows, which cause the post man and the visitor to wring their hands in desperation, consists generally of tbe smallest number of rooms that can distinguish a house from a hovel. As long as the Post Office de liver letters this sort of thing will always go on. in contrast witu tne apatny displayed Here the way in which the question has been solved abroad merits attention. The American has long ago adopted the numerical method, which reckons as the pe feet ion of human wisdom. As that system depends for its success on rectangular streets, its adaptability to London may well be doubted; and also whether a sys tem that involves the mental operation of car rying so many figures in one’s head is a good one is questionable; to recollect that oue friend lives at No 127 of Ninety-sevanth street, and another at No. 97 of One Hundred and Twenty seventh street will always be confusing, while another objection is that it is almost too mat ter-of-fact for the English mind, which has still some sparks of sentiment about it. The French, on the other hand, look upon the names of their streets as rewards for merit, and have ingeniously invented the system of honoring the great men of the past by keeping their memory alive in ihe present. Perhaps a still better method would be to name streets after those who have become famous in them. To Persons Deiing Insurance. W.
