The annual meeting of Ihe Atlnntio & St. Lawreuce Railway Company was called at the company’s office iu this city yesterday. There was not a quorum present, but the following officers held over: Presideut—Hon. Samuel F. Spring, Port land. Vice President—Joseph Hickson, E>q., Mon treal. Directors—Sir Alexander T. Galt. Montreal; Charles E. Barrett, Harrisou J. Libby, Frank lin R. Barrett, Francis K. Swan, Philip Henry Brown, George P. Wescott, Portland. The following annual repoit'was presented: directors’ report. At the close of the current year the direc tors find little to which they need call the at tention of the stockholders. The Grand Trunk Railway Company have continued to maintain the road and property iu good and satisfactory condition, and to make the payments required by tho lease. Last year we referred to the report of the commissioners of the sinking fund, which showed that, in consequenoe of the large pay ment made by the Grand Trunk Company iu January, 1881, tho fund was actually iu excess of tho »mount of this company’s obligations to the city of Portland. By making this pay ment the Grand Trunk Company intended to relieve itself from all further liability by rea son of these obligations. The city, however, declined to receive tlie fund so made up, as naymeut, on the ground that the company was bound to provide for the city bonds not yet due, and not, simply at;its pleasure, to pay the amount of these bonds to the city. The Su preme Judicial Court of the State having sus tained the city iu its position, the commission ers, with the consent of all parties, have re funded to the Grand Trunk Company a por tion of the sum paid into the fund, as nppeara by their report herewith,—the effect of this re payment being to leave the total amouut of the fund just what it would have been had the regular semi-annual payments to it been made without interruption or variation to date. Tue treasurer’s report, herewith submitted, gives the preseut share capita! aud debt of the compauy. For the Directors, S. E. String, President. The following is the treasurer’s report: treasurer’s report. I present my 87th annual report as treasurer of the company.it beiDg for the year ending Jane 30. 1883. Tho by-laws require of the treasurer an an nual report; but as your road is leased to the Grand Trunk Railway Company of Canada, which operates the rood, receiving the income and paying the expenses, the report becomes almi at an abstract of the preceding reports, so litt'e chance ocouis now from year to year in the general accounts of the company. The capital stock of tho company remains, in amouut, the same as last year, and is divided as follows: 260 shares in Federal currency of $100 .. ..s 26.000 11.878 shares in sterling currency of £100 or $484 each. 5,468,552 28 fractional share rights of $10 each outstanding. 448 $5,484,000 The debt of the company, all funded, is as follows: Balance of obligations to the city of Portland, first mortgage, with sink ing fund.... .. ..3 787,000 The company’s second mortgage bonds of Oct. 1.1864, 6-208, 6300,900 or 1 499 910 t he company’s third mortgage bond* of ’ May 1,1871,6-208, ,61*7,300, or... 712,932 Balance due on exchange of bonds. 152 $3,000,000 Tiie si,000 bond of ihe issue of 1851, alluded to iu previous reports, has not as yet been pre sented for payment. Two dividends of S3 each, upon the Federal shares,have been declared payable at this office and the corresponding dividends upon the sterling shares are paid by the Graud Trunk Railway Company, lessees, at their office iu London. Respectfully submitted, Chas. E. Barrett, _ , , _ , Treasurer. Portland, July 1,1883. The commissioners of the sinking fund re port as follows: SINKING FtJND.

This sum, added to the amount then in hand, made up the sum of $787,000, the amount of the Atlantic and St. Lawrence Railroad Com pany’s obligations, Jthe several securities in the fund being valued at par. At the request of the Grand Trunk Railway Company, we then tendered the fund to the city authorities, who declined to receive it, on the ground that euch payment was not in accordance witli the act creating the fund and the agreement with the city. The Supreme Judicial Court has now sus tained the city in its position; and we have, therefore, with the formal consent both of the city and of the Atlantio and St. Lawrence Company, refunded to the Grand Trunk Com pany the sum of £394,534.24 and a small amount of interest. This leaves the total of the fund, at the present time, $490,028.28, as given above. It was deemed equitable by all parties that tbe Grand Trunk Company should thus be placed in the same position that it would have been held bad the regular semi-annual pay ments of $12,500, required by the act, been made in due coarse. The fund may now be considered to be in amount what it would have been bad such regular payments been made, without variation nr interruption, to date. There is no outstanding interest due the fund at the present time. Respectfully submitted, , Char. E. Barrett, Sam’l E. Spring, Portland, July 31, 1883. Commissioners. Personal.

The following corrections should be made In the report of the meeting Monday night, ne cessitated by the lateness of the meeting and the great pressure of business. The caterpillar order was vetoed by the Mayor. Mr. Smith 6tated in his remarks that the wotk of destroying the pests must be no compliBhed at once, and another meeting would be too late If we would save our beauti ful shade trees. The upper board passed an order appropriating 8300 for the purpose. The lower board amended tlio order by simply Changing the appropriation from which the money should be taken from that of cemeier les and pnhllc grounds to that of contingent expenses (because the latter appropriation was the proper one, and the former is a small ap propriation for the various purposes (comprised In the name of the appropriation) and as amended passed it ?.ln non-concurrence. The order was returned to the upper board,and that body receded and concurred with the Common Council. The Mayor immediately soized the order and endorsed it as follows: Disapproved for the reason no charges should be made to the contingent fnnd until the appropriation for cemeteries and public grounds is expended. J. W. Dkerino, Mayor. This veto cannot be presented to the City Council for action until the next stated meet ing, or Sept. 3d, when it will be too lato lor an appropriation to be of nse. James A.

Permission was grunted the Paper Box Com pany to maintain a steam engine. The request of the Public Library for a set of oity plans was referred with power.

How the Woman’s National Christian Temperance Union has grown up-Its aims and the work it Is doing-Special features of tne late meeting at Old Orchard Beach. The Woman’s National Christian Temper ance Union has just closed its third samufr meeting at Old Orchard. At a convention held in the city of Cleve. land, Ohio, in November, 1874, at which thir. teen States were represented, this organization was formed. A few states had before this held conventious.com posed'entirely of women and in a small number local soclties had been formed, che result of that great uprising known as the Woman’s Crusade. Today thirty-one states and the District of Columbia are fully organ ized and local societies exist in most of the other states and several of the Territories making this the largest society composed < x, elusively of women and conducted entirely by by them, which has ever been organized. At the outset the work of this organization. Was reformatory,but the logic of eveDts proved more potent than mere words and out of years of experience nearly thirty departments of work have developed and all these various avc nues of endeavor lead to one point, the total prohibition of the liquor traffic. Wherever the traffic has touched and left its blight, whether on individuals, churches or states, juBt there this society has inaugurated some means to counteract its influence. Instant in season, every instrumentality has been used to educate public Bentiment toward total absti nence of the final extermination of the traffic, and the extension of tliiB organization has been found a leading factor in this problem. With this idea in view the National Union for several years has been In the habit of hold ing largo meetings at the diffieront mountain and seaside resorts, thus carrying to thousands who could in no other way be reached, the gos pel of temperance. At no other suiumor rBSort on our coast, per haps, are bo many people gathered from all parts of our own and from other countries, as at Old Orchard and for this reason it is the most desirable place at which to hold such a series of meetings as that which has just closed. The weather was delightful. Twelve Stato organizations were represented. Hon. Neal Dow mado the opening address, in which lie compared the past condition of women with their present, setting forth id a very clear manner the great gain which had been made in the past few years, and showing how, as woman had cornu to occupy a higher place in the family and in the community, in just that proportion had the family and the community been benefited thereby. No feature of this series of meetings was more interesting than the account given by Mrs. Clara L. Koacli of Washington, of tho efforts of tho Woman’s Christian Temperance Union of the District of Columbia among the soldiers. As a result of their labors a soldiers’ temperauce organization bas been formed at the Soldiers’ Home, which has not only the hearty approval but the active assistance of the commandant. At the different army posts societies have been formed and the work has so extended that a request lias come frftin For tress Monroe for the ladies to go down and begin the same work there. A reception was reoently given to these societies by the ladies, and it was an occasiou long to be remembered. The addresses each afternoon and evening by the ladies covered almost every plmse of temperance effort. The "Question Box” brought out varions arguments, pro and can, which weie answered or sustained by the speakers, showing a knowledge as wide as the questions wore varied. The last meeting on Sunday evening was closed with an account by Mrs. E. A. Tuttle, from the Indian Territory, of her temperance work among the Indians, iu the course of which she told of the conversion of the Mo doce, Steamboat Frank, Soar-faced Charley and others of that notorious tribe, after which she spoke briefly of the relation of our govern ment to the Indiana. Mrs. Tuttle is of the society of Friends, and has Bpeut much of her life among the Indians. She is well qualilied to speak of these things Her success with the Modocs has been remark able, and she told some very interesting stories of her life among them and their adherence to temperance principles. Tliis seemed a very tttflng close to a series of meetings which had presented so va.led a pro gramme to those who were in attendance, and the seeds thus sown will, no doubt, iu the near future, Hpring up and bear a rioh harvest. It. STATE NEWB. KENNEBEC COUNTY. Mrs. Samuel Blanchard of Chelsea, aged 70 years, committed suicide on Monday by hang ing. Hon. John L.

The beat baking powder is made from pure Cream of Tartar, Bicarbonate of Soda, and a small quantity of flonr or starch. Frequently other ingredients aro used, and serve a purpose in reducing the cost and increasing tlto protits of the manufacturer. We give the Government ChemiBt’s anal yses of two of the leading baking powders: I have examined samples of “Cleveland’s Superior Baking Powder” and “Rojal Baking Powder,” purchased by myself in this city, and I find they contain: Cleveland* Huperior linking Powder.” Cream of Tartar Bioarbonate of Soda Floor Available carbonic acid gas 12.fil per cent, equivalent to 118,2 cubic inches of gas per oz. of Powder. “Kojiil Baking Powder.” Cream of Tartar Bicarbonate of Soda Carbonate of Ammonia Tartaric Acid Starch Available carbonic acid gas 12.40 percent, equivalent to 11G.2 cubic inches of gas per oz. of Powder. Ammonia gas 0.43 per cent, equivalent to 10.4 cubic inches peroz. of Powder. Note.—The Tartaric Acid was doubtless in troduced as free acid, hut subsequently com bined with ammonia, and exists in the Powder as a Tartrate of Ammonia. E. G. LOVE, Ph. D. New York, Jan’y 17th, 1881. The above analyses indicate a preference for “Cleveland's Superior Baking Powder,” and oar opinion is that it. is the better preparation.— Hall’s Journal of Health.

The Prettiest Sight in Boston, so All Physicians Admit that hare seen Them ARE the Babies at the Free Hospital for Infants and Women with Chronic Diseases, supported by the Murdock Liquid Food Company. There are three wards, 20 teds each. Any phvaician or officers of benevoleat societies can visit them any day from 10 a m. to 0 p. m. These beds are assigned to the cities of Massachu setts, and any lady can have a bed for her infant, if one is vacant, free for one year. The babies gain from one half to one pound per week. They are not dependent on ihcir Mothm. Ditto Wet Nurse*. Ditto MHlk. Ditto Nursing Dollies. Any infant ten days old will not take any other food unless the Liquid Food is added; and this rapid growth in flesh and strength is proof of all claimed. Their only food being Murdock’s Liquid Food (see label oh each bottle), they require no medi cine, as they are nourished; and being nourished enables them to throw of the wastes which are making daily, as well as develop new life, as their increased weight weekly proves. Our infants are nine-tenths foundlings or orphans, and are physically as diseased or weak as the worst that are in any institution. A foundling eight weeks old was removed from quarantine too soon, and broke out with measles after he had been in the ward one week. The other infants, being well nourished, did not take them, as they did not want them. The child is as bright as any of them, and our treatment was only re ducing the strength of bis food. Dr. K. Tanszkv read a paper before the New York Academy of Medicine, April 2tf, 1883, which was endorsed by Drs. W. M. Cbamberlaiu, Jewett, Burrell, Brown and others. The subject was one of vital importance to us all: “Why is it that almost every woman, as soon as she becomes a mother, begins to suffer frern some form of pelvic disease?” In support of the words, “almost every woman,” he referred to a very large percentage of guyneco logical cases, in which the marked condition pre sent could be traced directly to child birth, and then asked the significant question, “By wliat means can the occurrence at these conditions be prevented?” All will admit that our answer is correct The women cannot obtain sufficient nourishment from common food during pregnancy to supply the wastes. Confirmed by the per'ceut. of women that cannot retain their food, also are unable to nurse their babies, the poor quality of their milk, loss of teeth, etc., is increasing annually. What will give relief. Any lady that lias any trouble in retaining her food will have no trouble if she will take Mur dock's Liquid Food, as it ; repares the stomach so that it cau digest other food. Any lady that wishes to nourish her babe can do so if she will take a teaspoonful of Liuuid Food four times oaily for six mouths. It will also build up her system, so as to protect her from the diseases that Dr. Tauszky’s lec ture describes, as they all come from not being able to supply the waste made on the system. aug8 dlawtfVV IMPORTED WINES k LIQUORS ;•( all kinds, in llie sRIGIVAL PACKAGES, -FOB SALK BY B.

' Messrs. J. C.

Knowing the value of Ayer’s Sarsaparilla, by observation of many other cases, and from personal use in former years, I began taking it for the above named disorders, My appetire improved almost from the tirst dose. After a short time the fever and itcbings were allayed, and all signs of irritation of the skin disappeared. My catarrh and cough were also cured by the same tnpans, and my general health greatly improved, until it is now excellent. 1 feel a hundred per cents, stronger, aud I attribute these results to the use of the Sarsaparilla. which 1 recommend with all confidence as the bert blood medicine ever devised. 1 took it in small doses three times a day, and used, in all less than two bottles. I place these facts at your service, hoping their publication may do good. Yours respectfully, Z. P.
