Hecelving the Newa.
Thero was very great iuterest and
anxiety to get tbo election returns.
Peoplo were banging about tho tele
grapb offiee until a late bour Tuesday
evening, but it was not uutil morning
that tbe good news really pourcd in ;
and tben it came fast, and every des-
patcbjmore favorable. Tbe Caledonian
issued little slipa witb tbe substance of
each telegram, and the people in this
and neigbboring towna were kept post-
ed. In addition to tbeae, Caledonian
bulletins were posted in front pf this
offiee, on Railroad street, and at Fair
banks' village, and aa fast a9 news was
received from the several states, tbese
statcs werearranged on theirrespective
sidea, eitbernnder Garfield or Hancock,
witb tbo electoral vote tbey each caat.
These bulletins were surrouuded by a
crowd all tbrougb the day. The onein
front of this office was surmounted by
a genuine American eagle, furuished
by C. W. Grahani, and appropriately
draped witb bunting. TJnderneatb
the solid South on the Hancock side of
the bulletin, was the following legend,
from that famoua old Democrat, Naaby :
We offered to take the Qovernment off
tlieir liands, lut they sed it wuz doin very
well now, thankyoo."

Readings by tbe Misses Bridgman.
The Misses Bridgman gave a read
ing in town hall last Monday evening,
to wbat is a large audieuce for tbat
kiud of an entertainment in tbis place;
and if one could judge by tbe applause,
niucb to the satisfaction of the audi

tbiug on the program, thougb tbo wbole
waa interesting, and an entertainment
tbat ougbtto draw out as many people
as an ordinary minstrel show, but wo

The Bailroads and Reviving Business.
We are told by a mau wbo is pretty

road business so good as it baa beeu

Tbia company is in need of more room

This structure is substantially built, in
a semi-circle form, witb one roof, and
is 60 feet deep, by about 40 in front,
aud 103 feet at tbe backi It -will take
40,000 feet of lumber for tbe bnildin,
and 35,000 sbingles. Tbia will enable
Mr. Howe to utilize tbe old building
for niachinery, and general repaira, in
connection with the present works.
About a dozen men are constantly em
