IS THE EASTERN TO BE LEASED ? Views of President Lord of the Boston and Maine. President George C. Lord of tho Boston and Maine Railroad was found iu his office Thurs day afternoon by a representative of the Bos ton Advertiser, who asked hitn what, in his opinion, are the prospects of consolidating the Eastern Railroad with the Boston and Maine, in view of the election of a new boaid of di rectors by the former road reported to be fav orable to tne project. Mr. Lord in effect re plied: “I have not r ceived any official infor mation bearing ou the subject, and have had had no conversation with any member of the board of directors of the Eastern Railroad since thejection. I did have some convers* tion a day or two previous, however, with one or two of those geutlemeu, and I understood that a board of directors wot Id be chosen fav < Table to a lease of th «t road to the Best on and Maine, provided that satisfactory terms ci*p be made. Our board is in favor of leasing the Eastern, providing we can secure it ou the terms which we would feel justified in offer ing. As I understand the situation, the direc tors of both roads are favorable to the same result, each board putting iu the proviso that the terms shall be satisfactory.” “Then it vir tually comeg to a question of terms?” was sug gested. “Yes; it is now pretty nearly a ques tion of terms. If we can get the Eastern on our terms we are ready to lease it * if the terms are satisfactory to them, the Eastern directors will no doubt be ready to accept.” “Possibly the Boston and Maine would not be disposed to offei very large terms, in consideration of the difference in the financial condition of the two roads,” was next suggested. “Well, the condition of the Eastern has improved con siderably in the past year or two,” said Mr. Lord. “I cannot say definitely at this time what terms we might feel jus tified in offering or they in accepting. No conference having been held, we are as far apart as we were six months ago on that point. I think ir“sale to Bay, how ever, that the Boston & Maine would not con sent to pay any dividends on the stock of the Eastern above what may be earned in excess of our present dividends; in other words, that we would not take auy part of our nreseut earnings to pay dividends on the Eastern Railroad stock.” “What would be the position of the Maine Central in the event of a lease of the Eastern? 1 understand the Eastern Railroad I controls the stock of that road,” was next asked. “Yes; the Eastern Railroad as a cor poration owns more than one-half the number of shares of the Maine Central stock, and thus controls it absolutely. In all the talk which has been had on the proj ct of consolidation it has been understood that the ownership of this stock would go with the rest of the property of the Eastern, and we should lease it the same as any other property. I don’t think our di rectors would consent to auy other arrange ment. Of course, the question of operating it is another thing and would be a subj ct for fn ture deliberation. I t hink very likely that it would be operated the same as at present.” I infer from what you said a few moments ago, that no definite t'me has been set for a confer ence betweeu your board and that of the East ern.” “No; no definite time. Such a confer ence will nn doubt be held very soon, how ever.” Talk and speculation about the proposed union of the present rivals lor Eastern busi ness are quite general. It seems to be general ly coi ceded that the prospect for a lease of the Eastern is better tbau ever before, and that it may soon be an accomplished fact. It is said that the whole control of the Etstern stock, by the resultffef Wednesday’s election, is now iu the hands of Messrs. Houghton (representing Mr. T. L. Weeks) and Lawrence, both of whom are declared to be prououuced advocates of the lease to the Boston & Maine. VERSES AND VERSEMAKERS. Opening Lecture in the Mechanics Course. Rev. Dr. Hill opened the Mechanics’ Asso ciation free coarse of lectures at Mechanics’ Hall last evening to a good audience. His Bubjectwas "Verses and Versemakers ” Dr. Hill began by explaining that he should speak of verses and versemaking in contra distinction from poets and poetry. Poetry was the language of the imagination aud the feelings; which usually clothed itself in rhythmic forms. But the nonsense of Mother Goose might also be put into as smoothly flow ing verse, as that oi Milton or Moore. Still the natural affiuity of rhvthmic form and deep feeling, enabled one to utti r deeper, holier, grauder thoughts, aud bolder comparisons in verse, than one would venture upon in prose. Iu the oldest poetry in the book oi GeueBis, the rhythm was merely a balancing of sentence, in couplets aud triplets. This mode of poetry was always retained in Hebrew literature. In the oldest Greek verse there is an indica tion of the quantity of syllables being observed. This system of quantity ruled in Greek and Latin poetry through all ihe classic ages. I., is very difficult for us moderus to couceive of it,it differs so widely from our system, which is governed wholly by accents. Iu the minds of most scholars at the present day there appears to be a confused idea that modern verse em ploys long and short syllables in the structure of its rhythm; but it really employs accent alone. Tennyson wrote two little poems, as he said, “iu quantity;” but they are simply writ ten with an observance of some of the Latin rules of quantity; and have nothing of the metric swing ot the old vers, S, Ail modern poetry uses, so far as the lecturer knew, only two kinds of rhythm; one in which the alter nate syllables were acceuted.the other iu which every third syllable. He thought that if mod ern versemakers would disabuse their minds of the idea of quautity, and write honestly by ac cent alone, they could make a much greater variety aud beauty iu their verse. The lecture was illustrated by the reading of several lyrical poems. MAINE HISTORICAL SOCIETY. The Celebration of Prof. Packard’s Birth day. As has been previously stated in tbe Press, the winter meeting of the Maine Historical Society will be held in this city Dec. 23 i, and the evening will be devoted to a celebration of Prof. Packard's birthday.

MUSIC AND DRAMA. MY OPINIONS. Neil Burgess appeared in a dramat;c version of Betsy Bobbitt at Portland Theatre la-t mght, in tbe amusing character ot Josiah Al len’s wife. There was a large audience pres ent and the laughter and applause were fre queut and long continued. While the drama tization does not afford so good a play, or as witty dialogue, and interesting situations as “Widow Bedott," it is still very funny, and, especially in the second act, the audience fairly shouted at the quartette choir and the old-fashioned qnadnlie. Mr. Burgess was very effective as Samantha Ann, and Mrs. Stoneall an excellent Betsy Bobbitt. Tbe play will be repeated tonight and the house should be crowded. Personal. The Washington correspondent of the Hart ford Conrant says:—“The happiest man in the House on Monday (Dec. 4ih) was Mr. Springer, and the most ludicrous in his greetings with his old foe, Mr. Reed, of Maine. They almost embraced, and certainly forgot that they ever called bad names or indulged in personal at tacks of one another. Of course Mr. Springer is re-elected, hence his happiness and magna nimity to his old oppoueut. A re-elected man can afford to be very generous in the House now.” Col. Elbiidge Geiry, Jr., expected to sail in the Samuel B. Hale for South America yester day, on a six months trip for his health. Mr. James Osgood, the old veteran of the Mexican war, and the oldest backman in Hott land, who has driven a hack for thirty consecu tive years, is very low with Bright’s disease. Mrg.sL. C.

Machine Steamship Company. At a special meeting of the directors of the Portland, Bangor & Maohias Steamship Com pany yesterday, the following officers were Chosen: President—W. F. Milliken. Vice President and General Manager- Wil liam G. Davis. . Secretary and Treasurer—George L. Day. General Agent—E. Cushing, MAINE JERSEYS. W hat Is Thought of Them in South Caro lina. The Press the other day mentioned the fine herd of Jerseys sent to Millsdale farm, Sooth Carolina, by George Blanchard and Brother, of Broadmoor Farm. The Boston Globe gives the following interesting account of the Millsdale herds: Probably oue of the largest herds of Jersey cattle in the Sooth is that at Millsdale farm, Greenville, . C., owned by Messrs Mills & Walker. 01 these gentlemen Mr. James Walker is a well-known resident of Boston, while Capt. O P. Mills, his partner, is a South Caroliuiau. Thsir farm comprises 325 acres, and is situated one and a half miles from Greenyil e Cou.t House. When they started in nusiness, about three years ago, they began with Tennessee and Kentucky-bred Jerseys. They soon found, however, that tkose cattle did not acclimite and were predisposed to faial <iise t.se. Iimeed it is a common belief in Sou ill Carolina that any cow or calf brought from the other side of the Cumberland moun tains will die, Mr. Walker being aware of this fact from bitter experience turned his at tention, to buying in Maine instead. Last January he bought four head of Jerseys from Messrs. George Blanchard & Brother, Broad moor Farm, Cumberland, ail young stock. Mr. Walker says that last August, when he was in Sonth Carolina, some of these cattle had grown to be heifers of fifteen months. He never saw as large ones of their age anywhere, and fine withal. He is satisfied that they are more fully developed and fiuely finished than if they bad remained in Maine, proving clear ly to bis mind ihat Maine is the place to buy Jerseys for shipment South. On the strength of this he has recently shipped thirty six head of American Jersey Cattle Club stock. Eight of these were from Col. C. P. Mattocks, River side Farm, Baldwin, Me., and eleven head from Geo. Blanchard & Brother, Broadmoor Farm, Cumberland, Me Mr. Blanchard’s j stock did so well before that Mr. Walker con cluded to try him again, and Mills and Walk er were fortunate enough to secure from Broadmoor the Belle of Broadmoor, who has won numerous premiums at the fall fairs, Anne Belina, No. 15,231; Dagmaulda, No. 15, 018; Nataline, No. 15,019; Carrie Dane, 2d, No 17,241; Glenker, No. 17,253; Glen Ola, No. 17, 252;. Eva L., No. 16,344; Lady Fawn, 5th, No. 16,342; Guinivere of Creambrook, No. 17,251: Kate of Broadmoor, No. 17,248. He also pur chased several head of Alonzo Libbv, Sacca rappa, Me, who also breeds Ayrshires, and who sold Colonel J. B. E. Sloan of Charleston the Ayrshire heifer Daisy Maine. Besides >he herd of Messrs. Mills and Walk er at Millsdale Farm there are, as already stated, three herds of Jerjey cattle in South Carolina. Hon. B. F. Crayton of Anderson, S. C., has a herd of about twenty, Mr. Strib lirg of Pendleton has a herd comprising about the same nnmbei of animals, and the Pelizer herd of Pendleton is also noted throughout the State. The Millsdale herd of Messrs. Mills and Walker, however, is the only one in which the principle of raising Maine stock has beeen strictly adhered to. Up to the present day they have never had an animal die on the farm. The explanation of this they find in the fact that Maine bred cattle, although aR a fam ily they require exira care, will undergo hard ship and pnvaiiou|better than native slock, acclimate more readily and not succumb bo easily to disease. , Railroad Notes. Yesterday’s Boston Journal says:—“We fail to comprehend why the recent election of East ern directors can be claimed as a victory fur the parties desiring to lease it to the Boston & Maiue, unless it is proposed to effect the lease upon any terms the latter iOAd will offgr. It is well understood that the former management of Eastern was disposed to effect a lease, but not upon terms that would leave the Eastern in a much worse condition than at present. The officials of the several banks here who are stuck with Eastern to the extent of some 20, 000 shares, at jast about the present quotations, are doubtlesB gratified to see a higher range of quotations for the security ” Pond of Cats. For some years an aged woman, now seventy seven years old, has resided on Forest street, and, as reported, has always paid her rent. However, for some reason or other, her land lord wanted her to leave and, other means failing, had a constable put her furniture on the siuewalk. Thursday night some of her neighbors accommodated her. It seems the old lady has a great foudnesB for cats aud when her house was visited there were found there four large live cats, and also three dead cats, the latter decently and neatly laid oat in woolen shrouds. Accidents. Mr. Berry, foreman at Stinson & Co’s, had a finger taken off in the press, Thursday. A girl employe#La$. £he match fac’oi y was badly burned oue’oay't'his week t>y a keroseue lamp exnloding and setting her clothes on fire. A man fell overboard at Galt’s wharf, Thursday, aud would have been drowned if he had not been rescued by some of the men employed by J. J. Lap pm & Co. As it was he got jammed between the whari and the vessel to which he belonged and was somewhat hurt. J. A. Merrill. This old firm, at 239 Middle street, offer a splendid stock of watches and jewelry. Their assortment ot precious stones is one of the best in this part of New England and offered at fair prices. In fact there is nothing from an elegant diamond set to a pret'y scarf pin but what can be touud on their counters. E. B. Robl son & Co. The other day the Pkess bad occasion to re fer to the excellent pianos and organs kept by E. B Robinson & Co. on Myrtle street, and to day his advertisement shows in what esteem a good, practical knowledge of musical instru ments by a salesman, is held by connoisseurs. That knowledge Mr. Robinson possesses after forty years experience. A Michigan boy ate a bar of soap, drank a lot of soda water aud went to bed to cure his cold. The doctor had a hard time to pull him through, but the boy now says the next time he catches a cold he will use Dr. Bull’s Cough Syrup. “Adamson’s Botanic Cough Balsam, prepar ed by F. VV. Kinsman & Co., of Augusta, Me., is a remedy which has acquired a great repu- • tatiou, and having a wonderful sale. Gentle men and ladies of first-rate reputation, who have used it in their families, speak to us in enthusiastic praise of it. “W. H.
