The exceptions t# Angl> Baxon and Welth names are few indeed among the Mew Englanders of the old families. Maine, it will be recollected, was a District, uafler the government of Massachusetts, although not of contiguous territory, until 15th March, 1*20, when it VH admitted into the Union by act of Congress of 3d ?arch. The separation from Massachusetts wu Mainly effected by the efforts and influence of John Holmes, who was a member of Congress from one of the Maine districts at the time. On the organ'aatlon af the State, the Legislature of Maine elected John Holmes and John Chandler as the first United States Senators. They took tbeir seats on the meeting of Congress in November, 1820, when Holmes drew for the term ending the following March, 1821, aid Chandler forthe term ending March, 1S2S. We give the following biographical sketches of the Senators:? John Holxm was of Massachusetts origla, hav ing been born on Cape Cod, absnt the year 1773; and while quite a young man he removed to Maine, and for many years practised law at Alfred, in York comity. In early life he engaged in pelitici, and becoming an active democratic republican, was elected to the Legislature af Massachusetts, where he rapidly reee to distiactlon by his eloquence, his playful and oscasionally roagh wit, his bitter at tacks on tke leaden of the federal party, and his gnat pe wen of debate. He was elected represen tative to Coagrers from the York district, and took his seat in the House In December, 1817. He was N elected, and continued a member of the House antil chosen lei a tor in 1820. In Congrew, he dMnguishel himself, particularly by his speech hi defence of General Jackson for his con duct in the Seminole war, and by his apeeahas and votes in favor of the admission af Missouri, without restriction of slavery, warmly cooperating with Henry Clay in his efforts in con premlsing that exciting question. His oourse in Congress on these qaestions subjected Helaiee to aevere censure both in Massachusetts and Maine, hot did a* materially inpair his popularity with the democracy athe latter. Having axerted himself to ?Beet a separation of Maine from Massachusetts, he -was chosen a member of the convention to form a constitution for Maine, and ast^ as chairman of the oemmlttee to draft it He haa no diflculty in engrafting apon it such democratis features as he wtted, for the people looked upon him as the lead er in (he movement which made Maine an indepea dent State. He had the honor of bsing chosen one "a# the flret Senators to repreoent the new State la Oeagreaa. Having drawn for the short term he was re elected in 1821 for a term of six yean. On thoax ptratton of that term he was superseded by Albion K. ParrU.-whem he had supported for 0 jvernor in 1821 , as the pMfrie's candidate, against castors house Influence, headed by Oen. Dearborn. Governor Par rt having resigned his seat as Senator In 1811, Mr. Holmes was chosen to sapply his place fbr the feur yean remaining of the term which expired in March, 1833. He thea retired to private life, at hie rwl dence ill Alfred, York oonaty, hot we believe was cecaaioaally esat to ths Legislature. He was ap pelated by General Harrison, in 1*41 , United States District Attorney for Mains, and held the oBoe at the time of his death, whieh took place at Portland, inly 7, 1843. He was about seventy yean of age. and had been a member of the bar over forty pean, and ever enjoyed an elevated and enviable repute tkm in bis professloa. While in Coagreis Mr. Holmas was decidedly fa TWable to the election of William H. Crawford to the Presideacy; and with his colleague. Gsn. Chan dler, attended the eauens In Febrvary, 1*24, which nominated Mr. Cnwferd as the democratic eandl. date. After the election of John (Juincy Adams to the Presidency. Mr. Holmee decided to support his ad ?dnlstration, and was sustained by a large majority of the people of Maine. He therefore opposed ths elestlon of Gee. Jackson In 1828, aad in the Senate co-operated with Mr. Clay and his friends in the or ganised oppositioa to Jackson's administration. lis ever afterwards acted with the whig party, and was consequently la the minority in Maiae, after the democracy of the State decided for Jaekson. In the Senate he Toted for the re-charter of the United States Bank in 1832. Ue was doubtless ' ne of tke ablest among the statesmen sent to Coagreas from Maine. Geo. John Cbaxplb wp of an old Massachusetts family, which ssttled in the SUM in the early part of the seventeenth century. We are onaoquainted with the earl j life of Gen. Chandler, but we believe ha waa ablackamith by trade. He resided at Monmouth, Kennehec county, and waa elected to Congreaa in 1806, and served four yean in the House, via. : ?to 1809. He appean to have baen aoquainted with military aOWin, for in July, 1812, he reeeived from President Madisen the appoint ?ent ef Brigadier-General In the United States army. In the spring of 1813, at the head of abont two thousand men, he marched for Baokett's Harbor, at a time when it waa expected that thirty thousand men would bs ready for the invasion of Caaaada by the first of May in that year. The troops ander Gen. Chandler were of the regular army, well efeipped, and under good discipline; consequently much was expected from them by the people. But these expectations were doomed to disappoint ment by an unlusky event. Chandler's brigade having crossed to Upper Canada, formed part of the army under Gen. Dearborn, at Fort George, near the bead of Lake Ontario. On the 2d of Jane, Gen. Winder, of Baltimore, (the same who was after wards so unfortunate in (he defence of Washington City,) with his bi^ada, weat in pursuit of the Bri tish and Indian allied farces, who took a position about forty-eight miles from Port George. Several bodies from Chandlers and Bojd's brigades wert Bent to reinforce blot, under Gen. Chandler, who had the command. The American troops were en camped at Stoney Creek, near Burlington Bay, and, in anticipation of an attaek, slept on their anas (on tka night of the fifth of June) in line of battle, formed to the best advantage the ground would admit of. The two Generals (Chandler and Winder) spent the evening together in Chandler's tent, making arrangements for the victory (hey anticipated the next day. After midnight Gen. Winder retired to his tent, and Gen. Cnandler and his assistant adjutant-general laid down, hut dM not sleep. Soon after two o'clock on ths morning of the 6th of Jane the outpost i and guards were fired u pan by the advance sf the enemy's column. The British an 3 Indians imn-e^ttlj a a vised the Ameri cans of their rpproaoh by a tremendous savage ysll, in which both the whites and their red brethren oor. dially united. At this horrid signal Gen. Chandler and his aid instantly mounted their horses, and the American line was formed and waiting for the enemy by the tine they were witbin musket shot, the troops under General Winder were also in* stantly formed oa the left, under the imme diate eye of that General. The extreme darkness of ths morning prevented the American officers from knowing at what point the evemy intended to attack them until tlie British advanced with charged bay onets upon their right. A well directed fire was opened upon them from nearly the whsle American line. Gen Chandler took post m the rear of the loft Sank of the right wing, where he issued his orders with the utmost coolness, and occupied his leisure moments in encoursgisg his troops to perform acts of valor. Ilia aid carried his orders to General Win. der, who with great energy encouraged hii men, aud the officers and troops behaved like veterans. The British troops were commanded by General Vincent. The Americans lent In killed and ..wounded and miwipg, 154, the British about 250, and bath sides claimed the victory. But owing to the ex-, treme darkness, several mistakes took place; General Chandler's horse fell under him, by which accident the General was severely in' jurcd, and fell into ths hands of a body of the British troops, whioh he took for American. General Winder also fell into a similar mistake, and by en deavoring to see what was taking place in the centre of the line, he also was taken prisoner, as well as Major Van Do Venter. The two Geneials, Chandler and Winder, were immediately conducted as prison ers of war, to Montreal and Quebec, but after a time were exchanged and returned home. There was great difference of opinion Among the people if specting the conduct of these General*; but while g (j me were dispotad to censure them, the pub lic opinion finally settled down into a very geieral belief iba*. their capture was the result of misfortune which could not have been foreseen. The democra cj of Mail e retained their confidence in Gen. Chand ler, and bestowed on him various offices aud trusta. to show their confidence in him. It is not, therefore, hurprifii g that he was elected the colleague of John Holmes, as one of the AM United States Sena tors from Maine in Jane, 1S20. Chandler at that time was a State Senator, and president of the new Senate of Maine. In the Senate, Genera Chandler wan not distinguished cither in debate or on committees, except in a general tacit acquiescence in the coune of his colleague, Mr. Holmee, and in whatever measure was conidered democratic, at a period when it was difficult to diaoover the tine which divided partes in Congress or among the peo pie. In 1823, Gen. Chandler was re-elected to the Senate for a full term of Bix years, which expired in March, 1829. He fonnd his way into the minority caucus which Dominated Mr. Crawford for the Preii dency, in February, 1824, when the darkness that enveloped politician! was greater than that which caused the General to fall from his horse, and Into the hands of the enemy at Stoney Creek, eleven years be fore. On the confirmation of Hoary Clay as Secretary of State, under John Quincy Adams, he voted in the affirmative, as did his colleague, Holmes, Mr. Van Bnren, and various other Crawford men ; while Gen. Jackson, who was then a member of the Senate, and thirteen other Senators with kin, voted in the negative. Bath of the Maine Senators opposed some of the prominent measures of the ad ministration of John Quincy Adams, but Gen- Chand ler was mora uniform in his opposition than Mr. Holmes. Flcally, the We Senators took different sides in the Presidential election of 1H28. Chandler supporting Gen. Jackson, aad Holmes, mainly through his friendship for Henry Clay, sustaining Adams, and oo the election of Jackson taking part with the opposition, and ever afterwards acting with tho whig patty. On the expiration of hia second,' term, in Maroh, 1829, after a service of over eight years in the United States Senate, Gen. Chandler retired from that body, having been superseded by the election of Peleg Sprague by the Legislature of Maine, in his place. He received the same month the appointment from Gen. Jackson of Collector of the port of Portland, the compensation of which office was then $3,400 per annnm. He continued to hold this offiee, we believe, natil he was removed by the whig adminis tration, lu 1841. In the last year of his life he resided at Augnxta, in Maine, and died in September, 1841, aged eighty one years. Albion Kbith Plants is a descendant of Thorns. Parris, who emigrated from London to Mwsiehwn in 1683, and is the only son of Judge Samuel ParrU, of Hebron, Maine. Another early member of the family was Rev. Samuel Parris, ol Danvers, Massachusetts, who was born in London, in 1663, emigrated to Maseachusetts, and studied at Harvard College. He was ordained as a clergyman at Danvers, in 1889, and in 1682 the Salem witchcraft delusion commenced la his family. His daughter, about twelve years of age, and hisneice, Abigail Williams, of nearly the same age, pretended to be bewitched, and accused an Indian woman, living in their family, of bewitching them. 1 he tiev. Mr. Parris beat her, aad com pelled ber to confess herself a witch. The hasbatid of the Indian woman, for his own safety, turnel ao?u?er of others. The delusion spread rapidly. More than one hundred persons were apprehended, and most of Item ware commit ted to prison. Even the wife of Governor Phlpjvs was accused. Oa the 16tk of August, 1892, Ave per rons were executed; In all, includlig snbeeqaent tri als and executions, nineteen persons were hung for wi.ehsraft, and one maa proseed to death for ntt pleading. There bad before been executed for witchcraft a womaa in Charlestown, In 1648, one in Poirfcester, one in Cambridge, And ene in Bos ton, In 1466, two or three at Springfield, aad one at Hartford; a man and his wMk at B.wton in 1662, a woman In 166#, and anctlier in 1688. The deln slon at Salem lasted sixteen months. As the Bev. I My. Parris had been a aealous prosecutor, his church ( I in 1693, brought charges against him, and, at last, although he acknowledged his error, he was dis missed, in lG96,and removed to Concord. In the present oentury , witchcraft being unfashion able, the Parria family have only been distinguished for a fondness for office, and Aiblon K. Parris has been remarkable for his success in offioeholding be yond that of any prominent man the State of Maine has produced. He graduated at Dartmouth College, New HaafJ*hire, in lb06, and looking for the road to preferment and wealth, he of course choee the pro fession of law. It is difficult to name the time when he was first elected or appointed to office, but in 1821 we find him holding the offioe gf Judge of one of the c.urts of Maine. William King, the flrat Gov ernor of Maine, having resigned in 1821, ia conse quence of being appointed a Commissioner under the treaty with Spain, the democracy of Maine were divided as to his suoeesser. The family of General Dearborn, who monopolised the best offi ces under the general government, brought forward General Wingate, tiie son-ln law of General Dear born. To break up this influenoe of the Dearborn clique, John Holmes brtught forward Judge Ptrris as the people's candidate for Governor. The federal, uts aleo brought forward Mr. Whitman as a candidate. The result showed the pre dominance of Holmes' influence in the State, Judge Pan is being elected by a majority of six hun dred and twenty-nine votes over both candidates. He was annually re-elected, until he waa shoaen Uni ted 6tates Senator, to succeed John Holmes, for ths term commencing March 4, 1827. He resigned his seat in consequence of being appointed Judge of the Supreme Court of Maine, in July, 1828, anJ John Holmes was chosen his success ?r as United States Senator, in January, 1829. Judge Parris supported the adnjlubtratioD of Jackson, aid from that Presi dent received, in 1836, the appointment of Seeond Comptroller of the Treasury. Consequently he re signed the officc of Judge, and removed to Washing ton city, where he continued in the eqjoyment of his office for about fifteen years, baffling every attempt to effect bis removal, until he was finally dismissed under Fillmore's u<5 ministration in 1851. Returning te Portland, Maine, he did not remain loog iu private life, but waa chosen Mayor of the city of Portland, in opposition to the noted author of the Maine temper ance law, Neal Dow. That office he still holda, in a very respectable old age, and a monument of what may be done by quiet perseverance in obtaining and holding office, with the consent of the demo cratic party, which formerly protested rotation in cardinal principle. Pflio Spragui, who succeeded John Chandler as Senator , is of an old Massachusetts family, the members of which are very numerous in New Eng~ land, and their ancestors among the earliest emi grants of ths seventeenth century. Peleg Bpragne was a lawyer of Portland, and was twice elected a member of the House of Representatives in Con gress, where he served from 1625 to 1829. He waa then transferred to the United States Ssnate, having previously distinguished himself lu the House as a supporter of Adams' administration. In the Senate he took a high rank as a debater and opponent of the administration of Jackson. He co-operated with Mr. Clay in the passage of the com promise tariil of 1633, end acted with the whlgi in that body uniformly ai a zealous member of the party. In September, 1834, he waa the whig candidate for Governor of Maine, under fa vorable circumstances for success but being dereate4 by the democratic candidate, Mr. Dunlap, by abeut 2,000 majority, he considered it his duty to reaign the office of United States Senator. He accordingly resigrcd, in November, 1834, and in his letter to the Legislature he remarked: "Peculiar circumstances gave the canvass the character of an appeal to the great primary sonrce of power? the people. Their decision has been pronounced; and I eannot now per. ceive that any consideration of public doty require* me to sacrifice my feelinps ard wUfces by continuing in office a moment longer than is necessary to girt the Legislature an opportunity to elcct another in my stead. The precedent cannot be dangerous. There can rarely be such a coincidence of circum stances, ani never without the voluntary consent of the Serator himself to be placed directly before the whole people as a candidate for their suffrages.'" Mr. 8praguc afterwards lemoved to Boston, and practiccd law in that city. He was a leading mem ber of the Whig National Convection in December, 183P, which nominated Geo. Harrison, and la 1841 was appointed Judge of the United States District Court of Massachusetts, an office which he still holds. John Rcoglm was the democratic successor to Mr. Sprague. He was a resident of Thomaston, and whLe in the Senate was only distinguished for a quiet support of the administrations of Jackson ani Tan Buren. Etbik BHimr was a lawyer of Baco, Maine, and while at Washington elty, as a member of the United States Senate, he was admired as a regular "Down Easter," and a statesman of the school de scribed by Major Jack Downing, of Portland, as pe culiar to the State of Maine. He was descended from John Shepley, who emigrated from England to Seism, Mass., in 1637. Ether Shepley graduated at Dartmouth College in 1811, and, entering political life, aeted with the democratic party. For several years he held the office of United States District At torney for Maine, and after three yean serviee at United States Senator, and supporting the adminis tration of Jackson, he resigned, in 1838, in conse quence of being appointed Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of Maine. J roan Daw a, who held the office of Senator, by appointment of the Governor, for one sessioa, was of the family of that name in Massachusetts whose de scendants are so numerous in var'ous parts of the ciuntry. He was a graduate ot Dartmouth College of the class of 1796, and commenced the practice of the law at Fryebnrg. He held the office of County Attorney for Oxford for six years, was Judge of Probate fer about twenty years, and of the Circuit Court of Common Pleas for ten years. He was a member of the convention for forming the constitu tion of Maine, In 1820. He was also a member of the executive conncil of the State in 1834, an!, finally, United States Senator, by executive appelnt ment. In all these offices he maintained a conscious fidelity to the public, while he discharged their duties with grcat ability. Rkuil Williams k a lawyer of.

In 184? he was app inted one of the commissioners on Mexi can claims, and It had been expected by many that General Taj lor would have called him into the Cabl net as Secretary of the Treasury, bnt it was deemed expedient to give that office to Mr. Meredith of Penn sylvania. John Fathfiilp was born at Saco, Ma'ae. Janua ry 30, 17i>7. He had not the advaotages of early ed ucation. yet, possessing an ardent love of knowledge, and a mind of great activity, be succeeded in at , aining a distinguished consideration among his 'ellow citizens.

In 1844 he i was a prominent candidate before the Democratic National Convention for nomination as Vice Presi dent on the ticket with Mr. Polk, and reoeived one hundred and Beven votes on the first ballot. It was advised by Robert J. Walker, and then deemed expedient to give the nomination to a Pennsyl vania candidate, in consequence of which George M. Dallas was nominated. Mr. Fairfield was re elected Senator for another term ; but was suddenly taken off, in the forty-ninth year of his age, while he was in the dlsoharge of bis official duties, at Wash ington city, Dec. 24, 1847.

He wai chosen by the whigs to Congress from the Portland district, in 1840, and served one term in tbe House of Bepresentotives. The State of Maine has always been governed by cliques of lawyers in both political parties at Port land and Angnsta. To obtain,pollt'cal preferment it has been necessaiy to make terms with these cliques, who engross the offloes, and generally bestow them on lawyers. Maine was democratic during the war of 1812 to 181S, although Massachusetts was federal. The vote of Maine for Governor was as follows In 1813, de. mocrate, 14,806 ; federal, 13,738.
