Presldeut PUrilw,!. reached iugusta, 2Je.. tae home of Mr. Blaine, yesterday, he w* greeted bv a great crowd, which extended m^rrm* the deoot platform and track*. and some of its members were on the depot roof and upon buildings neat at hand. It was a gather ing typical cJ a Maine city, and as the train was brought to a standstill and the President walked out on the platform he was given an old-fashioned Maine cheer. Mayor I.aue in troduced the President Then the cheering began again and the President grasped many of the scores of hands which were held out to him. Everybody wanted to shake bands with him. of course, and men and women clutched the sides of the car and clambered on the coup ling to do so. There was pushing and hanling, for the crowd was packed closely, and one or two men lost their hats, but it was a big recep tion and President Harrison evidently enjoyed it. The train moved off in a storm of cheers. The President sat down to lunch with Sena tor Hale as soon as the train left the Augusta depot. His lunch was interrupted by his arri val at Waterville, which was signalized by a salute. A big crowd occupied the green in front of the depot and gave Maine cheers as, under the escort of Gov. Burleigh's staff offi cers, the President left the train for the first time since it started from Boston. Amid cheers he walked to a staging, which had been erected for the purpose within sight of the cars. Muyor Meader and other civilians were with him. In response to their greeting the President said: THE PRESIDENT'S FIRST SPEECH. "The preparations which have been made here are more suggestive of a speech than those I have seen at any other place along my route. I started from Washington with a resolute pur pose to make no speeches. The purpose of my coming to Maine, as you well know, was to visit your distinguished citizen, my personal friend and cabinet officer, James G. Blaine. [Great cheering.] I beg you will, therefore, allow me simply to thank you for the cordiality with which you have greeted me, to wish you all good and to bid you good-bye." Amid cheering the l*resident returned to the tram and to his lunch. Afterward he de voted himself to a chat with Senator Hale. Both gentlemen went to the rear of the train when Bangor was reached, about 3:30 p.m., while a salute was being fired. The depot platform was packed with humanity. So great, indeed, was the crowd (hat hundreds of people could not get a glimpse of President Harrison until the train moved off again. In front and ut the sides of the car the people crowded, and through a door at the side which Was opened Congressman Boutclle. Hon. Hannibal liamlin. Mayor liragg, ex-Gov. l>avis and other gentlemen entered. These visitors, who only remained in the car for a minute or so, chatted pleasantly with the President when he was not shaking hands with the people in the crowd. Mayor Bragg told the 1'resident: "I am very sorry we could not receive you more formally." mb. hablin's se.ntimext. Mr. Hamlin said: "The arrangements ought to have been that we could have extended to you the hospitality that is in our hearts." Tho President answered, "Thank you. sir," and added a word or two. which implied that he appreciated what was meant. But these remarks were interrupted by the necessitv for greeting the crowd then, if at all, and Con gressman lioutelle introduced him to the multi tude. who gave thn e cheers for the President. The President extended his hand over the rail and shook the hands of those who were fortu nate euough to rearh him. Congressman Bou telle finally announced: - The President would be very glad to shake hands with you all. but it is impossible," and off the train "went as more cheers were raised. The 50 miles between Waterville and Bangor had been done in kixty-two minutes, and the runalong the road to the terry was made in what seemed to be just as good time. A new locomotive had been taken on at Bangor. It was decorated lavishly -vith bunting and flags and bore at the front a framed portrait of the President. The train polled into Ellsworth but a few minutes late. Accompanied by Senator Hale th<? Presi dent passed to the rear platform, where he was greeted by another sea of upturned faces. The mayor of the city and Judge Emery of the su preme court were personally introduced and some mare handshaking was indulged in. Sen ator Hale took care of the President at this point. Save for mi occasional cheer as the train dashed through a station or by a field there was nothing out of the ordinary until Mount liesert ferry was reached. There another crowd was met and it was a great one. considering the size of the place. RECEIVED BT MR. BLAINE. Secretary of State Blaine, w ho had gone over on a special boat from Bar Harbor, walked along the platform between the people, and, stepping into the private car. greeted the Presi dent. He was followed closely by Congress man Henry Cabot Eodge of Massachusetts. With but a minutes's delay the President and his Secretary of State, followed by the rest of the party, left the cars and walked through to the sttamer Sappho, which was brightly deco rated everywhere that decorations could be placed. The presidential train had arrived a few min utes before the S a.m. train from Boston, and the boat, a special one. had ouly a few passen gers besides the notable ones. * Messrs. Harri son and Blame walked upon the upper deck and stood at the bow, looking at the boat, which started about & p.m. They were obliged to put on overcoats very soon," for a chilly evening on the water followed a warm day on the land, but they kept their places on deck till the wharf at Bar Harbor was reached and the island reception began. The first sign of the reception came from the revenue cutter Woodbury, which was decorated and which fired a natioual salute. This greeting was taken up by yachts, some of which were decor ated. Then the welcome was taken up by the people on shore. The wharf was crowded' and the street contained many sight-seers. Amid frequent cheers from the people and music bv the Bar Harbor band TBK president AND BR.

Mr. Halford and Mr. Lodge followed at once in a carriage drawn by Mr. Blame's horst s, and a dozen vehicles closed in behind and made quite a profession through the streets. L'p Main street they went. The hotel piazzas and balconies contained the hotel residents, the sidewalks were well lined, manv ?tores and buildings were decorated and at severr.l points along the route cheers for the visitors were raised. But when the procession turned out of Main street it was to proceed to Stanwood, Mr. Blaine's cottage, through streets that contained no crowds and few decvfrations. The two car riages which led the .ine turned iu the Stan wood gTounds, and at the cottcge the President and Secretary of Stat< were received bv Mrs. Blaine.

Ju?t what he will do today is a little uncertain. It is safe to say. however, 'hat he will lunch with Aulick Palmer, dine quietly with Mr. Blaine, and in the evening enjoy the hospitalities of the canoe club. While no definite announcement has been made, it is understood that he will go to Moosehead lake during his vint to the east, and a popular reception at Bar Harbor one dav this week is talked of. ??? Allen's Partner Arrested. F. W. Hoefele, President Allen's partner in the iron business, was arrested at his house in New York city last evening and locked up at police headquarters.

Another Chapter In the Government Telegraph Controversy. President Norvin Green of the We? tern Union telegraph company, in a lengthy reply to Poet master General Wanamaker's last communica tion on telegraph rate* to the government, says: ??We seem to be getting nearer together at to the power and iuty of the Postmaster Gen eral to name the rate of tolls to he paid on gov ernment messages. 1 only claim that this power and duty are limited by the constitution to a Jnst compensation for the service required, and that a just compensation must cover the actual cost of the service with something added for the use of facilities necessary to perform it. and as you say the government is willing to pay Just rates we have come quite to an agree ment on the princiDal that must govern the tixing of rates to be paid. I still insist that the government is our most favored cus tomer and that the rate for govern ment service during the past five vears, considering the character of the service, is lower than that given to any other patron. The government rate has been 1 cent per word for a thousand miles or less. You may make up a supposed message, with ad dress and signature of unusual length and twenty words in a body, sent a short distance under our half-rate contracts with certain transportation companies, aud show that it is a tride less than the government rate, but the half rate is generally higher, and you forget that this half rate in money is not all we get, to it must be added the value of what those transportation companies do for us. But when you apply even the strongest supposed case to a message between New York and Chicago or Washington and St. Louis, jou will fina the government rates are the lower." "The aver age reduction in the government rate in twelve years has probably been in the neighborhood of 50 per cent. For the year eDding July, 1877, our average rate to the public was 43 6-10 cents per message. Last year it was 31 2-10 cents per message, the reduction to the public being something less than 30 per cent. In the same period the cost to the company of handling messages has been reduced from 29 8-10' cents per message to 23 2-10 cents, being about 20 per cent." ROMEO BIRCH ACQUITTED. A Sympathetic Jury Hold That a Mid night Call is Not Always Burglary. From the Philadelphia Press The story of a romantic love adventure was developed in the old court house yesterday when Conrad E. Birch, twenty-three years of age, was acquittted before Judge Biddle of the charge of burglary. Birch, who lives at Harrowgate, was charged in two bills of in dictment with burglary at the house of Thomas Wilkins at Harrowgate. Birch had been pay ing attention to Lenora. the daughter of Wil kins, a girl of seventeen yeurs. but his atten tions had been objected to by the girl's family and he had been forbidden the house. Deter mined to have an interview with his sweetheart he climbed into the window of her bed room in the second story, but was met with three vol leys of gunshot and was arrested. Thomas Wilkins. father of the girl, testified that at 11 o'clock on the night of July 31 he heard a noise of somebody breaking in. The family had not retired. He called his son Alon zo's attention to the noise. Alonzo got his gun. ran arcund by the window and fired three snots at the supposed burglar. The old man was sur prised when Birch ran down the stairway and begged him not to shoot. An officer was ?ent for and the young man was arrested. "Aren't there some relations existing be tween vour daughter and this young man?" asked Lawyer Thcmas P. Judge, who repre sented the defendant. "No," replied the wit ness, most emphatically. "I don't mean kinship." explained Mr. Judge, '?but wasn't he paying some attentions to your daughter?" "He can't marry no daughter of mine," re plied the old man in a most defiant manner. ??If I had had that ere gun instead of my son. lie would have been in the hospital instead of in that ere dock." Alonzo. the son. corroborated his father's story, adding that he shot at him three times, but "did not hit him. The defendant was then called to the witness stand to testify in his own behalf. He said that so much of the story as was told by the prose cutor was true. He had broken in at the hour named, was shot at and arrested, but he was veiy much enamored of the daughter of the house, Lenora. The parents of the young girl and her brother objected to his attentions, and were so careful and successful in their efforts to keep him away from her that he took this opportunity of making a call. His intentions we;e entirely proper, and he could only ac count for hiB meeting her at that unseemly hour and in that burglarious manner by his great desire to meet her aud have a chat with her. All his other efforts to see her had been baffled by the family. He took nothing from the house and made no attempt to take any thing. Several witnesses were called to testify to his good character. Then Lawyer Judge told the jury in his address that the young fellow ought to be commended for his nerve aud for escap ing the shots, when he had to climb through a netting in the window. "It is a shame," said he. "to indict a -Romeo' like him for burglary." The jury acquitted Birch immediately without leaving the oox on both indictments, and he walked out of the court room triumphantly with his counsel. FIGHTING FOR A GIRL. New York Pugilists Pummel Each Other for Feminine Favor. About forty sports assembled in a well-known sporting resort near New Brighton. S. L. yes terday morning, to witness a fight to a finish between Mikey Young and Eddie Moran, both of Staten island. Both the men were desirous of the exclusive society of the same girl, and she seemed to like both of them so well that she did not know which one to choose, so the men came to the conclusion that the best way was to fight it out in the prize ring, the wiuner to have the exclusive right to go with the girl. A prominent sporting man of the island agreed to make up a purse of $200. Young is twenty five years old, stands 5 feet 6 inches, and weighs 152 pounds. Moran stands 5 feet 7 inches, weighs 150 pounds and is twenty-eight years old. Young was seconded by Billy Dunn and Jack Fay. Moran was looked after by Eddie O'Brien anil Jim Daly. A prominent sporting man was chosen referee. Johnnie Hennessy held the watch for both men. The tight was under Marquis of Queensberry rules. Both men were dressed in regulation ring costume and wore skin-tight gloves with the fingers cut off. Iu the tiret four rounds Young bad much the best of it. but Moran rallied up well, and in the last round, while Young was thoughtlessly wiping thy blood which was streaming from his face with his right glove, Moran caught him a terrific right hander under the left ear and knocked Young out, aud the referee awarded the purse and tight to Morau. ? >i??? COLLOM AKRESTKD. It U Thought He Intended to Commit Suicide. The series of forgeries committed by J. Frank Collom is still the reigning sensation in Min neapolis. Colloui was arrested late yesterday afternoon upon a warrant sworn out by A. A. Davis, attorney for Mr. Blaisdell. The com plaint charged that Collom forged a $3,500 five- j day note. One of the other warrants is s worn out by W. B. Anderson on a thirty-day note I issued July 6, and a third complaint was for a ?5.000 note issued June 29. He was arraigned a few moments later in the municipal court. The judge finally refused to release Collom on bail ou account of the numerous charges, and he passed the night in the city lock-up. It is darkly hinted that Collom really in tended to commit suicide when he made the desperate attempt to iump out of the window of Uavit A Farnnain's law office Tuesday'after noon. In snpport of the theory of suicidal in tent it is pointed out that within the last three mouths Collom has taken out insurance upon his life to an amount exceeding 9100,000. This insurance is known to be placed in the following companies: New York Life, New York, ?25,000; Mutual Benetit. Newark. ?10.000; Massachusetts Mutual, ?'20.000; Union Mutual. Maine, ?10.000; Mutual Life, New York (applied for), 950,000, making a total of ?115.000. Coiloni made application to the Mntual Life less than two weeks ago through the agent in Minneapolis. His application was forwarded to the home office in New York a week ago. Unseemly Levity. From the Detroit Journal. Walter?"Oh, Mabel, I worship the vary hair of your head. Give me on* carl to recall this hour at some future time." Mabel?"Oh, I see?a sort of time lock." Walter?"A lock la a good thing to adore; i that'* why 1 want it." BENJAMIN 8PANDAUER DEAD. Tb? Life of a Witness Against Mrs. Sur ratt Ends In the Penitentiary. Benjanmin Spandauer, ? well-known crimi nal aud confidence man, died yesterday in the Maryland peuitentiary of bowel complaint after an illness of several weeks. He had been confined to his bed for several days. Spandauer was a witness for the United States against Mrs. 8urratt, who was hanged for alleged com plicity in the murder ?? President Abraham Lincoln. He also figured as a government cU tective in the prosecution of John H. Surratt in 1868. The trial lasted for three or four weeks. The Baltimore .Sun says: Tho offense for which he went to state prison was securing t70 under false pretenses from his brother-in-law, George A. Retler. He was accused of obtain ing #20 from George H. Waltman under false representation. Waltman was a cousin to Spandauer's wife, and had been promised a position with the Baltimore City passenger railway. On June 28 Spandauer was sentenced to two years in the peuitentiary. Deputy Marshal Lannan, in discussing Span dauer's record last night, said: "I have known of him since about 1870. I got to know him better on going to the central police station in 1874. He was known as a mean, low confidence man, and had been arrested on numerous petty charges. He was arrested in 1888 by Detective Droste, and got a term in jail. The term ha was serving when he died was the only one in the penitentiary." He was born in Bavaria, Germany, and was about fifty-nine years old. He ha'd black hair, eyes and side whiskers, and was a man of me dium weight and height. His face was long, his nose flat, and his complexion dark. THE TOTAL ABSTINENCE UNION. Resolutions Adopted by the Conven tion?Election of Officers. The delegates to the national convention of the Catholic total abstinence union completed their business in Cleveland, Ohio, yesterday. The committee on constitution recommended no material changes and their report was ac cepted. The report of the committee on reso lutions constituted the basis of most of the dis cussion of the day. The resolutions advocate total abstinence as the safest and surest battle against the evils of intemperance. They say: "We realize that the future of this union and of temperance among our Catholic people de pends in a great measure upon the training of children in Catholic schools, the formation of cadet societies and societies of young women." 1 he resolutions also "condemn the practice of using liquor in so-called Catholic clubs at picnics, excursions, and the like, held or con trolled by Catholics, as scandalous and con ducive to intemperance and other deplorable disorders." Tho concluding resolution says: "The promise by which this union one year ago pledged itself to endow the Father Mathew chair in the university should be soon re deemed, and we appeal to the spiritual di rectors." In the afternoon a letter was read from Arch bishop John J. Keane of tho new Catholic uni versitv at >\ ashington commending the union for its purpose to endow a professorship in the university as a memorial to FutherMathew, the apostle of temperance. The centennial of bis I birth will occur in October, 1H90. and the union will celebrate the event by giving #50,000 to the Fathew Mathew chair in the new institution, which will itself be dedicated next November. The committee on the memorial reported to the convention that they had raised #5.000. They resolved to enlarge the committee by choosing one member from each subordinate union, who will see to it that everv member of his union contributes #1 to the" fund. This plan, if successful, will raise the #50,000 for the professorship. The election of officers resulted as follows President, Hev. J. M. Clearv, Kenosha, Wis ? first vice president, Kev. Morgan M. Bheedv' Pittsburg; second vice president, Wm. A. Man ning, Cleveland; treasurer, liev. Wm. McMa ,'?n; Cleveland; secretary, Philip A. Nolan, Philadelphia. Pittsburg was selected by a vote of 442 to 237 as the city for holding the next convention. A SCENE IN PARLIAMENT. Mr. Harrington Threatens Mr. Balfour Amidst a Great Uproar. In the English house of commons last night during the debate on the Irish estimates, Mr. Balfour, chief secretary for Ireland, referred to two resident magistrates refusing to subscribe for a race meeting because Ted Harrington, s member of the committee, had denounced the police as cowards, liars and uniformed blood hounds. Mr. Harrington challenged Mr. Balfour to give his authority, and Mr. Balfour replied that be spoke on the best of authority. Mr. Har rington started across the floor, apparently with the intention of assaulting Mr. Balfour. He was followed and pulled back by Mr. Ma^ honey. A tremendous uproar followed. The chairman's calls for order were drowned in Irish yells. Amid a moment's pause Tim Healy loudly accused Mr. Balfour of using an insulting ges ture toward Mr. Harrington, and told Mr. Bal four to keep quiet or else they would make him. The tumult continued a quarter of an hour, the chairman warning the Parnellites to control their feelings. When order was restored Mr. Balfour denied that he had used an insulting gesture, and Mr Harrington apologized for his hasty action! Mr. Balfour was then allowed to proceed with his speech. Haytlan War Reports. Officers of the steamer George W. Clyde, which arrived in New York yesterday from Port de Caix August 2, says that the fighting at Port au Prince still coutiuues, with little change in affairs. At St. Mark's it was reported that Hippolyte had transported 1,000 men to Sale trou, effecting a landing without opposition, although that region is inhabited by legitimists. The lack of opposition is attributed to scarcity of arms among the residents. It was said Hip Eolyte proposed to enroll and equip them in is service, and if succesxful in this he would gain an advantge over Legitime, as the dis tance across the peninsula to Port au Prince is not great, and an attack with a considera ble force from that quarter might result in capture. Horrible Death of a Child. At Cleveland, Ohio, Wednesday evening CharleB Oberg, thirteen years old. while creep ing under a circus tent on the West Side, was struck on the neck by one of the showmen. His windpipe was fractured, and after suffering terrible agony all night he died yesterday. His body, on account of the escape of air which should have gone into his lunjjs. was twice iu normal size when he died Three showmen are under arrest. A Clan-na-Oael Organ. New York Curreapondenc? Baltimore Sun. The extradition of Martin Burke to Chicago in the Cronin murder case revives the languish ing interest in that unsolved mystery all over the country. One consequence of the murder will be the starting of a Clan-na-Gael organ, a weekly paper called the Freeman in Phila delphia. The projectors are O'Meagher Con don. who was discharged from the editorial staff of the Irish World because he took the Cronin Bide against Patrick Ford's advocacy of the Sullivan spy theory; Dr. P. J. McCahev, who was with Dr. Cronin on the famous investi gating committee; M. J. Ryan and other well known Clan leaders. A number of the New York members will go to Philadelphia on next Mon dav to attend the festival which the Clan clubs will have on that day at Rising Sun park. She Married a Colored Barber.

SoiiiTea, hat in hand, aald in aubatance: "Tea, your excellency, I wanted to pay my reapecta to you. I have no idea that you have any ill feeling toward me personally, and I want to aay that I have no hard feeling to ward you and do not blame you for doing you duty as governor of your atate. But, governor, if you knew me you would know that I am not a bad-hearted man. I don't want to break your laws. I didn't know the fight was to come off in Mississippi till the last moment and when it was too late for me to do anything. It was then fight or be called a coward. I know, governor, you would be like I was. Yon wouldn't let them call vou a coward without fighting. I wanted to pay my respects to you, governor, and say to you that I wish you well, and hope you will have success in life and all your efforts to enforce ?our laws, which, I assure you, I had no inten ion of breaking. I am yours truly. John L. Sullivan." The champion then bowed himself out, the governor oourteously acknowledging Sullivan'a greeting. The governor haa not given his impreaaion of Sullivan, but those who were near aay he waa evidently impressed by Sullivan's gentlemanly demeanor. He was heard to say, "He hasn't got a bad eye, by any means." XI LB AIM STILL AT XAXTTOX. Kilrain, who is still enjoying himself at Hampton, is highly amused at the reports of his capture telegraphed over the country. Mrs. Kilrain was in Norfolk yesterday shopping for heraelf and Jake. THE LAST or DETKCTXTB XOBBIS. A telegram haa bean received by the Mary land secretary of state from Got. Lowry of Mississippi, stating that he had revoked the appointment of Detective Norris, who was try ing to arrest Kilrain, the prize fighter. PCOILIST PAT KILLXN ARBESTED. Pat Killen, the pugilist who is to fight Joe McAuliffe in a few weeks, was arrested at a variety theater in San Francisco Wednesday night while giving a sparring exhibition with Prof. Anderson of Chicago. Anderson, Mad den. Pope, Gooding ana several others were also arrested, but the party was released upon 950 bail each. Capt. Short, who made the arrest, said his orders had come from the chief of police, and were caused by Killen's offering to Knock a man out in four rounds or forfeit 9100. DISCONTENTED COLORED MEN. Thousands of Them Preparing to Take Their Families Out of North Carolina. A Raleigh, N.C., special to the Philadelphia Prext says: About three months ago the col ored men of thia state held an emigration meeting in this city and appointed a committee to correspond with the colored people through out the state and make all the arrangements necessary for the emigration of all who desire to leave the state. This committee have been diligently at work and they have the names of heads of families who represent 78,000 men, women, and children who have signified their desire to leave the state during the approach ing fall after their crops have been gathered and Jtlieir settlements made with the land owners. It is not expected that this number will migrate during the balance of the year, but a very large number will leave. The discontent among the negroes is very great. Thev are dissatisfied with the present Tien law, which operates so as to malce the land renter pay enormous prices for all the ad vances he gets from the commission merchants in order to make his crop; and this same law nuts the renters entirely at the mercy of the landlords. The colored' man is also dissatisfied because he is not allowed to do Jury duty unless he owns land. He is also dissatisfied with the road law. All persons between eighteen and forty-five years are required to work and keep up the public roads and nearly all this work is done by the colored men. and the colored men are required to pay poll taxes in addition to their work. Besides, ths law passed by the legislasure last winter amending the election law makes it easy to prevent the registration of colored voters. About fifteen thousand colored people, all told, have left the state since last November. Wages for able-bodied men do not average over 97 p er month, accompanied by a house to live in. firewood and one peck of cornmeal, three pounds of bacon and a quart of black molasses for each week as rations. There are agents for emigration societies scattered all over the state, who are doing all they can to induce the colored people to leave. Several hundred have gone to California and write that they are doing well. The large proportion of those who have left the state within the last year have gone to the states further south. Lack of labor in many counties because of the exodus has caused great inconvenience and loss to the farmers and it seems probable that this trouble will be greatlv increased during the next eight mouths. No laborers, white or black, are com ing into the state to take the places of the emi grants. Chloroformed tbe Horse to Death. A peculiar accident occurred at Chester, Pa., last evening. A valuable horse, owned by Max Ochiltree, a well-known business man, broke away from the hitching post to which it was fastened and ran away. The wagon was demolished and the horse dashed against a tree and broke its back. Chloroform was ad ministered to put it out of its misery. The animal was valued at over 9500. Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad. There are rumors in New York of some con templated changes in the management of the Chesapeake and Ohio railroad. Mr. Hunting ton has openly stated that President Ingalls had his hands full with the "Big Four," and to attempt to manage the Chesapeake and Ohio besides was too much for so young a man. This does not coincide with the statement re cently made that tbe road had five years' con tract with Mr. Ingalls and would not be likely to break it with a man who had done so much to enhance its property. News of Stanley. A Zanzibar special cable to the Philadelphia THmes says: Stanley in coming down to the coast with Einin pasha, 9,000 men and an en ormous quantity of ivory. The exact date of their arrival is uncertain. The Germans are doing their utmost to create a disturbance here and a rising against all Europeans is not only possible but highly probable. ???? . Burke Taken to Jail. Martin Burke, the Cronin suspect, was turned over to Sheriff Matson of Chicago yesterday by Special Agent Collins, and was seen during the afternoon by his Attorney, Senator Ken nedy. Burks was placed in the boys' department at the jail, which is usually regarded as squeal ers' headquarters, and the other Cronin prison ers were placed where they cannot communi cate with him. Minister Lincoln to the Workingmen. The fifty members of the American work men's expedition were entertained at dinner at the Tavistock hotel, London, yesterday. Mr. Lincoln, the United States minister, and Mestrs. Howell, Fenwick, Burke, Cremer, and Biggar, members of parliament, were present. Mr. Liucoln in a speech dwelt upon the strength and prosperity of England and Amer ica, which, he said, were based upon lasting foundations.

R print* A1X Til NEWS, Local, Domestic tad Fortlp, LONG IN ADVANCE OF THE MORN ING PAPERS. ThU Is eoMpieuouilr true of all of now*, but especially M In Local Now* and District Affair*. THE STAR ha* a very Bach LARGER and BETTER force of LOCAL RE PORTERS and SPECIAL WRITERS than any otber paper la Wa*kli|tM ever thought of employing, aad ITS MECHANICAL EQUIPMENT AND PRINTING FACILITIES ARE MORI THAN THREE TIMES AS POWER FUL AND RAPID AS THOSE OF ANY OTHER WASHINGTON PAPER. It la therefor* able to print *ach day a fall report of every transaction of public In terest occurring In th* DUtrict up It the very hour of going to | Dy the free use of th* OCEAN CABLES for REGULAR AND SPECIAL DIS PATCHES, and with the difference of tliue In its favor, It Is also able to glvo Its readers ever) afternoon the news of the WHOLE EASTERN HEMISPHERE for the entire day, and up to IS o'clock midnight, thus leaving literally nothing In the way of news from Europe, Asia* and Africa for the morning papers. -:o: Equally doe* THE STAR lead all Ma contemporaries In the publication of the NEWS OF OUR OWN COUNTRY. Receiving the regular dispatches of both New* Associations; with alert aad enterprising special telegraphic cor respondents at all important points; aad with wires leading directly from Its own oflice to the general networh of telegraph system touching ever)- city, town and hamlet In the United StaUt* and Terri tories, It 1* enabled to receive and print at once a full report of every eveat of consequence occurring during th* d^ anywhere between th* Atlantic i cilic < ST NOTE THE RESULT: j| THE STAR HAS MORE THAN THREE 1'IMES AS MANY REGULAR SUBSCRIBERS aad MORE THAU FIVE TIMES AS MANY KEGULAM READERS AS ANY OTHER DAILY PAPER IN WASHINGTON. It Is de livered regularly by careful carriers at the HOMES OF THE PEOPLE, AFTER THE BUSTLE AND WORRY OF THE DAY ARE OVER, aad It Is thus rsa4 leisurely and thoroughly by EVERY MEMBER OF THE FAMILY. They know that It prints all th* i and has only th* Interests of th* of the District In view, with no measures to advocate, aad no private schemes to forward. They know It, la ; short, to be THE PEOPLE'S PAPER, and nothing else. As aa ADVERTISING ; MEDIUM It is, therefor*, ABSO 1 LUTELY WITHOUT A RIVAL. R to In fact worth more as a means of reach ing the public THAN ALL THM OTHER DAILY PAPERS IN TME CITY TOGE1 HER. Furthermore, In proportion to th* re turns It gives Its patrons, ITS ADVER TISING RATES ARE THE IN THE CITY. -to:* la conclusion, th* public should la mind this on* significant fact: THM ! STAR does not rely upon empty boast* : to impress the public. ITS C1RCULA ! TION IS SWORN TO; Its PRESS ROOM IS OPEN TO THE PUBLIC; aad its BOOKS MAY BE INSPECTED by any one having aa Interest In their examination.
