The boys arc much pleased that Capt. Badger is til remain with us. It came about in this way. j .repetition was cir culated and sighed by every member of the Company asking that he be in stalled as Captain. This petition was ser.t to Governor Grout. Another peti tion was instituted at'j signed by all the members of the Colonel's staff and by the field officers who also recommend ed him. All the pressure from those diffiercnt sources was brought to bear upon the Governor and much to the de light of the Company and the rest of the regiment Captain Jihdgcr was re instated.

Bisbee, who has just returned from Camp Olympia. is on foot to to raise enough money by subscription to pur chase new agate plates, cups and batrs to keep thorn in for t4 "je of the boys of tfie Barre company .: Capt. Bis. bee reports tht the tin plates now used by the boys are very dangerous to their health, as the tin is easily scraped from the plate in cutting meat antl becomes mixed with the food. The tin is very poisonous. The plan is to have the la dies of the city meet early, next week anil make the bags. It will cost $25 to buy the plates and cups antl material for the bags so that if 25 persons can be found who will give $1 each, the go0tl work will lie accomplished and perhaps thereby the good health of our Barre boys at the front can be preserved. On the Corner. All ilin 'iftprnnoii the " boss " looketl for a place where this aggregation of "kickers" could hold their regular meeting. The Inspector followed on, anxious to be. on lia'iu u any jinpiuuuu matters were under debate. During the several hours that the " Chief Cook " was looking for a place, he tried to dotlge the Inspector, but "I have been on earth a few days" ami with the Hid of a good wheel I made tpiick time. The first application made by the Boss for a meet in" place was at the engine house of the Barre Railroad company, but too many l,.,ve ii I read v asked the workmen for lodging, ami so the Boss moved on. The next stop was in the rear of Fred Slayton's stable, but Fred thought his horses ought to have a little sleep and so he refused to allow the noisy hood lums to pitch tents in his back yard. Almost ready to give up the task, the Boss decided to board the police antl meet on the Corner once more, u ncij offender was put in the cage for it, and so in spite of the oniers oi i nu .1.:.. f ....a r.lnli nf kickers held an all- in is l.mii'w.T . ni-dit session near the Corner, while your Inspector occupied his out position on tne platform of the telephone pole. . .i... t it.... ntwtatinn in the t'itV at AS me, luiviiiiiji j ........ - the present time is the location tif the proposed new scmim house, of course the Kickers count uoi ..(....:., fr,n, u..t.'ltny the question.

"W e have more children to educate, on the west sitle ami that is the plaeo for the school house." But the boys were not able to settle the question of location nnd so the imestion is still to be or not bo solved.

In the en gagement off Cienfuegos last Wednes day between the Marblehcad, the Nashville, and several thousand Span ish troops, one seaman named Reag in, 1 of the Marblehead, was killed, and John Davis, of New York, and John Doran, of Fall Iliver, both of the Marblehead, were seriously wounded. Many of the Spaniards are knowu to have been killed and wounded. The Americans wounded were brought here .this morning. The night occurred while the Americau vessels were try ing to cut the cable between Cienfuegos aud Santiago De Cuba. The fight was terrific, but the Tessels succee led in cutting the cable. The troops were assembled aloogthe shore with masked batteries so that the ships were ex posed to a terrible fire during the whole time the work was going on. There has been cousiderab.e discussion about this engagement since the first news of it was received from Havana last Thursday, and it has been the common belief that it had been cou fused with the battle of Cardenas, but it is now known that the report from Havana was in part, at least, au thentic. A great work was accom plished in putting the cable and the Americans were very fortunate not to have met with greater loss. Those who were wouded are now in a very dangerous condition and it is thought they will not live. Spaniards Lost Heavily. Madwi, May 14. The Spanish report from Manila admits that ttie Spaniards lost 300 killed and 600 wounded when Dewey brouuht about the annihilation of the Spanish fleet. The Yankee's captured ami burned all the merchant vessels. The Span iards are insolated by the American blockade and are in constant fear of au immediate attack. Another despatch dated May !)th says that the Arsenal has, surrendered antthat Cavitc has been evacuated by the Spauish and that the Americans suffered considerably. It says that an officer on board the Olympia was kill ed and that the Baltimore was seriously damaged. The Spanish shells did not burst while those of the Americans did. Look-out for the Oregon. Boston, May 14. The Herald this afternoon says : " A despatch just re ceived faom a Uio Janiero correspond ent ; is worded in conventional and appan ntly innocent language because of the censorship. He announces the fact that three Spanish warships have been sighted off the Brazilian coast near l'ernainbuco. It is believed they are searching for the Oregon. IS To Bombard New England. London- May, 14. The Star says tnal a despatch from Madrid via Paris throws interesting light gathered from official sources on the movements of Admiral Cerveras in command of the Spanish fleet since it left Cape Verde, It appears ho was headed f r St. Pierre when off the coast of Newfoundland ho was met by Colliers from j Sydney with coal and instructions to raid Portland, Boston, and Newport :;and if Sampson bomUudi:d Havana ft "lUiiwhlnr c'ff. " The Manila news changed his plans. The next move proposed was to decoy Sampson to Porto Rico then sail rapidly for Havana destroy the few ships left there aud finally if he should learn that the two squadrons were coming to meet him thus leaving him sea free his plan would be to sail straight for Charleston and bombard it. San Juan Slightly Damaged. Madkid, May 14. A dispatch from San .Tnaii says tho damage done to the town is unimportant. The 'American shells were aimed at a higher portion of the town, passed over it and fell into the bay. The enemy's bombardment was very fierce. The Manila Expedition.

Nineteen Commandments Which, if Kept, May Insure One Hundred Years. , Sir James Sawyer, a well known phy s(f na ; cf : EteniiRgirJF,- Knglnntl, -h been confiding to an andience in that town the secret of longevity.

A writer in Ihe Re view of Reviews says that this quality was "the jest of bis circle." Names escaped him. I heard him eaj to Mr. Dayton, the candidate on hit ticket for comptroller and one tf th best known men in New York : "You won't niind it, I hope, if I for get your name. I am so conscious of the danger of getting names wrong that when the need of remembering comes it rattles mo, and away the name goes." He came late to a dinner at the Lotus club, where he was to discuss with some friends the question of his being a can didate in apprehended contingencies. It was raining, and he took from his pocket tho slippers with which Mrs. Ceorge had insisted on providing him in case he should get his feet wet, nnd as he put them on he apologized with honest gravity: "I lost time looking for a man I kept asking after as Kiusella, and it turned out bis right name w as Moriarity. At loast I think that was what be told mo it was when I found him." But there was no absentmindedness when discussion of the business in hand ensued ; ho was keen aud wide awake. A Last Resort.
