TUESDAY MORNING, APRIL 3. STATE OF MAINE. BY THE OOTBBTOK. A PROCLAMATION. By the advice of Hie Executive Council, I do hereby appoint. Thur*d«y, Hi*' April, next, to be sot apart as a day of Fasting. Humiliation and Pravor, Let the people of our State—in honor of the ous toin of our forefathers, and the veneration in which it has ever been beld by the Christian people of New England—on that day. abstain from all un necessary occupation, and assemble in their several places of worship; to confess the sins t f the past, and consecrate their future, to Him who is the Giver of every good and perfect gift. “Give the Lord the glory due unto Ills name, bring an offering and come into His courts.” Given at the Council Chamber at Augusta, this twenty-eighth day of March, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and eighty three, and of the independence of the United States of America the one hundred aud seventh. FREDERICK liOBIE. By the Governor, JosEfii O. Smitu, Secretary of state. Democratic Victories. The Argus of yesterday morning boasted of Democratic victories taking place in the West, and will doubtless congratulate its readers ou a victory of its party iu the thriv ing city of Evansville, Iud., in which the citizens of Maine, many of them the con stituents of the Argus, are at this time, deeply interested. This city is situated ou the north bank of the Ohio, about one hundred and fifty miles southerly from In* diauapolis, and, until recently, has enjoyed a most enviable reputation, gained while uu der Republican rale. Its growth has been rapid, and its bonds have commanded a pre mium in Eastern markets; hence private in dividuals and savings institutions in Maine, and Portland in particular, have largely in vested in them. Many of its citizens were well known CA»t«<>n n>«nwl)AiiA Itormr ur.tjm a tioued, which, coupled with its uudoubied prosperity, gave confidence to investors; and, had the people been wise enough to keep the Republican party iu power, tfiis confi dence would not have been misplaced. The population of Evansville is about the same as Portland, having nearly doubled in thirteen years, and its public debt is a little more than one third that of Portland. Some time ago a Democratic “reformer"’ started the cry, that the pebpie were paying to eas tern capitalists too much interest, and by persistent talk succeeded iu uniting with the hoodlums enough thoughtless men, w ho, had they known better would have done better, to carry the city for a Democratic mayor, and the result is repudiation. The better portion of the citizens of Ev ansville are humiliated but powerless. They see the fair fame of their city ruined and themselves disgraced. The election which took place yesterday was upon the square issue of repudiation or non-repudiation. The Democratic papers scoff at what they are pleased to call “n sentimental rietc of the question,” and claim that the people will gain more by what they save in taxes than they will lose in reputation. Many such victories will set back the wheels of reform considerably, yet these are the victories which the Argus congratulates its readers upon winning. Do our people want political victories which are moral defeats? The American Funeral Gazette, published at Cincinnati, is a journalistic curiosity. It ■s a monthly paper, devoted to the interests of the fraternity of undertakers. It carries the funereal tone into every department—ar ticles, extracts, stories, and poems, all are pervaded with the savour of death and de cay. The elaborate heading of the paper de lineates *he various processes of coffiu man ufacture, aud shows a funeral procession entering the gates of the cemetery. There is a long editorial on “The Tombs of Egypt,” and the miscellaneous matter is chiefly cheerful anecdotes relating to death and fu nerals, collections of epitaphs, etc. The per. sonal department chiefly relates to funerals &flr<x m6 moTements of We learn, for instance, that “Prof. J. H. Clarke has returned to his embalmorial la bors down South,” etc. The advertisements are mainly those.of undertakers or dealers in articles used in coffin manufacture. We can cordially recommend the Gazette as just the paper to send to a hypochondrical friend to enliven the passing hours. These seems to be no such thing as fairly getting away from the winter, which, ac cording to the almanac, we ought by this time to have left behind us. If for a day or two the weather is appropriately pleasant, and the advent of spring appears to be not altogether a hollow -mockery, no sooner are our hopes raised and our pores opened than there comes a frost, a killing frost, or else a downfall of something that is all the more disagreeable and exasperating because it is neither rain, sieet, hail, nor good, old-fash ioned snow. This kind of thing is trying not merely to the temper, which would be a small matter, but to the health, and the doc. tors say they have seldom been busier than they are just now. The man who is without a cold is not in the fashion, and those are fortunate who have no more serious cause for complaint. The acting Secretary of the Treasury has made an important decision regarding the time when the tariff is to become operative so as to affect consignments shipped through to the interior. His ruling is that the rate of dnty to be collected is to be determined according to the date of the arrival of the importing vessel at the exterior port of en try, so that if the old tariff is in force npon the arrival of a westward bound consign, ment at New Tork, it will ha taxed under that tariff upon its delivery to the consign ees at Chicago or San Francisco, although by that time the new law may have gone into operation. As this consequence, how ever, can be avoided by having the goods placed in a bonded warehouse and delivered therefrom, the ruling will not cause any great inconvenience. The British police profess to have infor mation of a deep-laid and comprehensive scheme, fortunately frustrated by their vigi lance, by which the systematic and simulta neoue destruction through the agency of dy namite of English public buildings was to have been accomplished. Their story may possibly be well founded, hut such is the feeling which prevails just now in England ‘n regard to the plans and purposes of the Irish agitators, that all reports of this char acter must be taken with a large grain of salt. We do not know that it has yet been conclusively established that the recent ex plosion in the Board of Trade building was the work of the Fenians. They are held re. sponsible for it on general principles. It may have been noticed that attempts to pass gilded live-cent pieces of the new issue for five-dollar gold coins have been frequent ly reported of late. This frequency is prob ably due to the fact that when such attempts are made the fraud is usuallv detected and exposed. Allowing that ihe number of fools in the world 1* considerable, not many of them are sufficiently foolish to mistake a gilded nickel for the genuine article. The City Council sat until nearly mid night and came to no conclusion concerning the salary bill. The measure reached tl!e lower board at a late hour and that body wisely adjourned without attempting to con sider it. The increase of salaries made by the bill is considerable and should not he voted without careful deliberation. A petition has been circulated asking that the pay of policemen be increased. It docs not hear the names of the heavy tax payers. The petition was not presented lo the City Council last night. It is quite probable a counter petition will be circula ted. • Ex-Phesti>knt Diaz during his current visit to this country is being dined and wined and feted to an extent which can hardly fail to give him a very favorable idea of Ameri. can hospitality. As Diaz lias a very good chance of being re-elected President of Mex ico, his good opinion may in the near future be well worth having. The United States can afford to do without the good-will of its Mexican neighbor, but nevertheless it has a great deal to gain from the permanent estab lishment of cordial relations between the twocoumries, aod so it is just as well to make a friend of General Diaz, who, by the way, is a loyal patriot and an unusually able man. The visit of the Malagassy Envoys to this country appears not to have been barren of r»3ults since the cruising limits of the South Atlantic Station have been extended so as to include the Island of Madagascar. Just what our navy is supposed to do when it gets there is not apparent on the surface, nor does it appear essential that it should do anything if it could. A possible complica tion with the French government in regard to the Island can hardly he deemed worth going out of the way to look for. It is not impossible, of course, for the Italian emigration to this country this season to exceed that from Ireland, as had been ex pected by those who profess to he posted on the subject, for the Italian emigration to the United States has of late years become very large, and has famished us with a valuable resource for unskilled labor of all kinds, but nevertheless, the troubles in Ire land threaten to increase very largely the Irish exodus. Mil. Tilden comes to the front again with a clean hill of health, and a gymnastic cer tificate. He is in the race for the Demo cratic nomination sure enough. Other as pirants may write to each other, in the lan guage of Lord Byron's note about a female friend: “Lady-, who has been danger ously ill, is now dangerously well."’ That's wnat’s the matter w ith Mr. Tilden. The Starry Heavens. Movements of the Planets for April. [Providence Journal.] Venus is morning star and is still the fair est of the train, as she holds her state in the eas'ern sky, and heralds the coming of the sun. She is now approaching the suu as sho travels on tho path leading from western elongation to superior conjunction; her progress is seemingly so slow that she will not reach the goal and finish her course as morning star uutil the 20th of September. On the 10th, Venus is in conjunction with Lambda Aquarii, a star of the fourth mag nitude iu Aquarius, being twenty-six min utes south of the star when at the nearest point at II o’clock in the morning. Al though star and planet are not visible at the time of conjunction, they will be worth look ing for on the mornings of the 10th and lltb. At half past 4 o’clock Venus will be far enough above tho horizon for observation, and will he seen on the west of a small star in her vicinity. This is Lambda Aquarii. On the morning of the 11th it wdi be seen 'bat planet and star have passed each other, Venus beiug then east of the star. Observ ers will note the rapid progress of Venus northward. At the close of the month site will be twelve degrees farther north than she was at its commencement. The right ascension of Venus is now 22h. 10m., her declination is 11° 37 south, and her diameter is ltT.S. Venus rises on the 1st at eight minutes after 4 o’clock in the morning; on the 30th she rises at thirty-eight minutes after 3 o'clock. Mars is morning star, but is now too near the sun and too insignificant in size to be of much account. A better time is coming and before many months have passed he will become an object of prominent interest as he approaches opposition. Like Venus he i9 moving rapidly northward. At the close of the month he will he iu northern declination, having travelled nine degrees north during the month. The farther north 'he planets are in this latitude, the more favorably they are situated for observation, and the longn is the circuit they make above the horizon. The right ascension of Mars is 23h. 6m., his declination is G od south, and bis diameter is 4 .3. Mars rises on the 1st at ten minutes before 5 o'clock itt the jmsOUBff: on.the _20tb he -eSafe awia a quarter before 4o cTocki Mercury is morning star until the 10th, and then evening star for the rest of the month. On the I6th, at 6 o’clock in th’e morning, he is in superior conjunction with the sun, passing behind him, and appearing on his eastern side to play his short role of evening star. He is the most active mem ber of the solar community. On the 27th, rushing eastward at full tilt, with a seeming intention to get as far away from the sun as possible, he encounters Neptune plodding I westward wun tortoise pace, ana striving to get as near the sun as possible. They have a conjunction, passing each other at the re spectful distance of three degrees. The meeting on the celestial road is invisible to terrestrial observers, on account of the prox imity to the sun of the. actors in the scene. They, however, win distinction for the meet ing of the planet that travels nearest to the sun and the planet that travels on the sys tem's remotest bounds, is the only planetary conjunction of the month. Mercury is trav piling north faster than either Venus oi Mars, for during the month his deelination northward increases twenty-three degrees. His right ascension is no* 23b. 59m., his declination is 2’ 23' south and bis diameter is 5".0. Mncury rises on the 1st at twenty- .re minutes after 5 o’clock in the morning; on the 30th he sets at twelve minutes after 8 o’clock in the evening. Neptune is evening star, and the leader in the order of rising and setting of the four great planets that are now included in the list of evening stars. He has nearly reached his greatest distance from the earth, and is so far away and so near the sun that the largest telescope in the world would fall to bring him to view. His conjunction with Mercury lias been referred to. The increas ing distance between Neptune and .Saturn is worthy of note, for, as the former is thirteen years in passing through a constellation of the zodiac, and Saturn is only two years and a half, the distance between them must in crease. The right ascension of Neptune is 3h.. and his declination is 15' 19' north. Neptune sets on the 1st at a quarter after 9 o’clock in the e.venii.g; on the 30th lie sets at half past 7 o’clock. Saturn is evening star, and may be seen in the west for about three hours after sun set. He is now nearly south of the Pleiades and presents no features of special fnterest to the ordinary observer. Even the tclescop 1st will soon have to take a season of rest, for the ringed planet will so- n be hidden from view by his close approach to the sun. The obscuration will, however, be compara tively short, for those who see him near op pssition next autumn will behold hirn in a more magnificent aspect than the one ho has presented during the past autumn and winter. His right ascension is 3h. 20m., his declination is Iff 49' noitb, and his diame ter is 16". Saturn sets on the 1st twelve minutes be fore 10 o’clock in the evening;on the 30thhe eets about a quarter after 8 o’clock. Jupiter is evening star, the third In the or der of settiug, but th? leader of the, planeta ry brotherhood in size and brilliancy. He distinguishes himself by no noteworthy deeds, but pursues the even tenor of his way, accepting with gracious condescension the involuntary homage of all beholders. His right ascension is 5h. .‘50m., his declination is 23' 15' north, and his diameter is 35" .2. Jupiter sets on the 1st at twenty-five min utes past 12 o’clock in the morning; on the 30 h, he sets a few minutes before II o’clock in the evening. Uranus is evening star, uru may sum do seen by the unaided eye as a very faint star in clear weather on moonless nights. If is po si Li on varies little from that pointed out last month, a little southeast of Beta Virginia, the largest star in his vicinity. Ilia light as cension is 11 h. 20m., his declination is 4 31' north, and his diameter is 3" S. Uranus sets on the 1st at 5 o’clock in the morning; on the 30th he sets at live minutes after 3 o’clock. THE MOON. The April moon fulls on the 22(1 at forty three minutes after 0 o’clock in the morning, l’he old moon is near Venus on the 4t.h, -Mars on the 5th and .Mercury on the Oth. The new moon of the 7th Is near Neptune and Saturn on the Oth. The conjunction of tlu two-days-old crescent with Saturn will he the most interesting phenomenon of the month, the moon passing forty-one minutes north of the plane!. On the 13th the moon is in conjunction with Jupiter, and on the 18th completes her planetary circuit by drawing near to Uranus. On the 22d the moon is eclipsed. As the eclipse is invisible in this region, though vis ible on the Pacific coast, the Pacific Ocean and Asia, and as less than one-tenth of her diameter is eclipsed, lie occurrence will not be of much consequence. On the 1st, short ly after 0 o’clock, the moon occults Beta Capricorn), the occultation lasting twenty-' two minutes. But as, In this longitude, It will take place after sunrise, observers will hardly be able to enjoy the beautiful phe nomenon. April t« a dull month on planetary records. Scarcely an incident of note enlivens Its mo notonous routine. An invisible eclipse of the moon; an invisible occultation of Beta Capricorn!; an invisible con junction of Mer cury and Neptune; an invisible conjunction of Venus and Lambda Aquarli, complete the unsatisfactory aspects of the planets. But all days are not field days. Stars must have their seasons of rest, as well as planets and human beings. Before many months have passed, meetings and partings on the celes tial road will he as conspicuous by their presence as they are now by their absence; life will be astir among our neighbors, the planets, and wo shall welcome their reap pearance, surrounded by all their former prestige. Even without exciting events, nothing can be more grand than the dome of head n powdered with stars; nothing more varied than the celestial picture nightly un rolled over our heads. It is well for our ap preciation of the shining picture, that It is sometimes hidden by clouds, and that it Is not always seen in its most brilliant phase. Emerson says, and all who love to study the heavens will endorse his view: “If the stars should appear one night In a thousand years, how could men be'leve and adore, and preserve, for many generations, tho re membrance of the city of Uod that had been shown'.”’ A Cannibal Girl Attempts Suicide. The Lovely Fauehanibal ia Croi-sed In Love and Becomes Tired of Life. Fauehanibal, the Cannibal girl, Is one of the attractions at John O’Brien’s circus last season, attempted to end her Cannibalistic existence on Monday night by taking lauda num. Unrequited love led her to the rash act. Sixteen years ago John Battershy, who posed before the public as a living skeleton, and his wife Hannah, who is still knowu to the amusement seekers as i he mammoth fat woman, were travelling in the South. While there they discovered a little mulatto girl with pe uiiar thumbs, which were longer than her fingers, and had an odd inwatd curve. They obtained possession of the child by offering a pecuniary compensation to ihe parents, who were ignorant mulattoes named Juman. The obscure child, after be iug properly trained, aud having her hair ar ranged to project toward all points of the compass, as a well-regulati d circus curiosi ty should, budded forth into a full-fledged Cannibal xirl. The shadow aud his plump partner kept the girl with them, as they discovered her to bo a gold mine. Battershy gradually in creased In weight so much that his lower ex tremities could not hear the load. Through this he was compelled to retire from the dazzling splendor of a chair in the side show. The 000 pound partner of his joys •ontinued in the business, however, with tire lovely Fauehanibal. While whir O’Bri en's show last season she became enamored of John Lennon, better known as “Kenne dy Jack,’’ the manipulator of prize boxes. Jack, however, became impressed with the idea that Fauehanibal wanted to make a meal of him. He fought shy of her for a long time, hut she finally convinced him that the cannibalistic tendencies credited to her on the flariug circus posters were a de lusion. When the show weirt into Winter quarters at Fraukford, the Cannibal maiden lived with her foster parents at 112 East Un ity Street, Philadelphia. Her lover has as siduously visited her all Winter. About a month ago ire made the discovery that she had nesro blood in her veins, and on this account refused to marry her. Since then she lias become despondent On Monday night, while talking to Jack, she reproached him aud declared life had no more eharms for her. Putting a vial, partly filled with laudanum, to her lips, she swallowed the draught. A doctor » as hastily summoned, and, with the aid of a stomach pump, saved the life of the lovely Fauchaninai. (Blackwood's Magazine.] Looking at American Magazines. It w as exceedingly clever, what may, per haps, be call -d smart, just at a moment when English authors were placed by a new efflorescence of piracy in a worse position than ever on the other side of the Atlantic, that the American periodical should have iuvaded our shores. But so it was. It has made, we believe, a successful invasion, am] not without deserving its success. For the American- magazines which England has ac cepted with cordiality are excellent in illus tration; and if their literary qualities are not the highest they have at least a certain novelty and freshness of flavor. There are, however, certain results of their introduc tion which are more important than the pcs siblv ephemeral success which a..ruihii<- nur. free from prejiuticss in favor of its own than ever public was before, has awarded to them; and these are first the revelation of some American authors little or not at all known in England; and second, a full per ception, hitherto possible only to a few, ol the claims of America in literature. These claims we have hitherto been very charita ble to, as the early clutches of a great litera ture about to come into being, though as yet somewhat stunted and not of lavish growth, at the laurels of fame. But few, perhaps, were aware how little consideration was thought to be necessary, or how entirely sure our transatlantic relations were of hav ing attained a standing-ground of certaiuty, much above that vague platform of hope.
