THE LIQUOR RIOT IN PORTLAND ? MILITARY miM UPON TBS OTIZEU INE MAN KILLED AND SEVEN WOUNDED. The Author of the Maine Law Attempt ing to Sell Liquor. Mm) Bow, Mayor of Portland, to be Indicted for Manslaughter. ? IWSPIFER OFIXION8. Ike rertlaed Argnn (AdU Hum Law), Jane 4. I It is with deep regret (bat we ?ro compelled to reoord pioeeediags ef Saturday night, whico ended in ta mult aid ike hheddisg of blood I"h?y are a repnach aod a (tain upon the fair reputation of our eiev. Upon ?ests tbe responsibility i? not ler aa to decide.? The whole matter will be legally nvestigaced, and Ibe wsponslbility of shoeing blood will, we trust, be inado to rest where it belong*. It ia proper, ciier tbe cir that we should ret rata from worsening a?J opinion upon this point and we proceed to ital? tke facts, as near aa we oan learn them, in tbe order ia which tk'j occurred. It win b? remembered, that on Saturday morning we called the attention of the City Marshal and 1'ohce to tke fact ttat a large quantity of spirltuoas liquors had been purchased in New Yo?k and brought here for sale, a?4 suggested to them the duty ef seizing the 31. These Hqwers (H,WO worth), Mr N?*al Do* hail stated to one ?f tbe Alermen, ke had bongbt en his own individual loepocaiblllty, and had ordered them to 1<? brought her* and otored in the city This being apparently in direct vulauon of law, making Mr Dow habiu to the Kty, on conviction, ef inipriMnmont for thirty aad rendering the 1 qnors subject to reizure and dostrue'ion, a complaint was aocorc .ngly maoe to the notice court, and Judge Carter istsurd his rarrar. t for the seizure ef the liquors: bnt whether for tbe arrest of Mr. Dew we hove not learned Judge Gaiter, how over, instead of giriag this warrant to an officer who woe rnwy to maxe immediate service, put it ia the heads ef Deputy MirehU Ring, who, for some cause, Immediately disappeared, and 00 u 1.1 not be foaad. Meantime ihe Basra of Aldermen was suddenly sum moned to meet for the purpose, it was alleged, of ef fecting a transfer of the liquors to the city, for its ageney, wbich was established on last Thursday night, by the easting vote of Mr. Dow though tae liquors weri C rebated seme weeks since. Aftsr tbe Aldermen had in together o while, Deputy Kin; appeared ana seized tke hquers upon the warrant. Quite a little crowd stood about the door where the liquors were stored, aid in tbe vioioity, during the re maixder of tbe aftersoon ; but perfect quiet ana appa ?sat good nature was observed. ;-<oon attar seven e'dosk a crowd began to collect about tbe deposit of the liquors ia tbe City Ball building, and gradually increase! until a little alter nine o'clock, when a cry of fire was raised, aa we understand, by Mr. Do w's order, and the be 11* rung with a view of "divert'n* the cro<rd from the spot. It had, bewever, a contrary effect, anl greatly increased it, for a time as tbe engine contraries were hrougbt by tbe hells frcrn both extremes of the eity to tha ctntrn in Market Square, where the crowd ?tsp] assembled. They, kewsver, toon withdrew, and tho crowd began to dimi *ieb. Occasionally during tho evening, stones and brick bits were thrown against the door of ths liquor store, break iag the glass and sashes, and otherwise injuring the deer. This was done, to far as we could see, oy boya. Tbe whole affair was the merest boys' pixy, tone in tho moat apparent good nature and with tue tatst poo mkl? excitement. Indeed, nearly the whole crowi sesmed to be there without any other purpose thnn curi osity to tee what might be dore, and those who th.ew tbe missiles, were without leaders, or apparent power to 4o harm. It ia our decidid opinion ? and we have aot met an in 1?bigent pertoa who witnessed tbe proceedings of ;ho evening tbat coes not concur with us? that an efficient potior ollicer, with a down good men, eould have easily Oieaerted the crowd sny t'me prior to balf past niue o'clock. Soon aftor ten o'clock tbe en/wil bad mate rially dimin'sbtd, and seemed rapidly dispersing, when Mr. Dow, accompanied by Capi. Green and a p-irt of '.be light Guard, appeared upon lbs .sidewalk ou the north ?Me of tbe City Hill The crowd were warned to din poise. Bis appearance, sword in hand, with holdiers, at eaee chattel tbe temper o> tbe multitude. Thsy Mklli*d arm. no teem and gave groats ani hiiees m reply to the proclamation to disperse. Mr. Dow then gave the order, "First section, fire!" The order was not obeyed, atd the crowd then threw missiles. A part of tbe compeni started to escort Mr. Bow toward llidc'le street, and tbe remainder immedi ately returned to their armory, in the third story of the City Ball building. At tlie t'm? Mr. Dow gave toe order to fire, (Capt Green refueed to gltv? it, as w* un derstand, on tte ground tbst be cii rot think the cir eometances authorized it,) the company were ? tan Jog directly opposite the entrance to the hail of the Me. chaf.c?' Association in Ciapp's blo t, and their fire woa.d have taken eflect, if at ail, upon the p eople on the sidewalk, a part of whom were meebaciss just coming from their hall, snd who were enti'ely unconscious that any suet proceeding was called for or contemplated. He have this part from a ger tlemaa who had just come turn the ball, where there had been some thre>e hun dred p< recn* during the evening, aad had stepped across the street near to Mr. Dow, when to his astonishment tke erder to firo was given by itr. Dow. After Captain Green's oomputy had retirsd the brick bats flew thicker and strosiger. aiu the police, who were aMiag the deputy marshal, who had seized tike 'iquors to guard them, commenced firing platoln charged oaly wtth poweier. A sort of sham fight wss thus kept up between the crowd, wbich bad now be:ooM mere deter mined in its character, aid tbe police, until at>ou' eleven o 'deck, when Mr, Dow, with a portion of the lUlle Guard* under ('apt. Charles W. Roberts, descended from the Light Guards armory, and with the musaetH of the Light (juards, 10 tbe south side ot tbo City iiall. Tne doors of tbe liquor store were then throirn open and the flrfag commenced, by Mr Dow's orcer, through tbe store upon the crowd in the street upon the other sice of the building One man, Ceorge Ro'^b ns, second mate of the bark Louisa Ettoa, whs shot through the body aad almost instantly killed. Tbe ball entered h's right sice, be'.ween the fifth and sixth ribs, paseied tbrongh nis body, cutting oil the great aorta, (the artery tbrongh wnicb the blood flow* to the lower extremities,) and escaped between the fifth and sixth fib on tho left side. Kobbina was very near the door whea the shot was fired, and immediately fell iato tho arms of a man clore by. Tbe booy *ao conveyed to tho ?Ate of Dr. Clay, where it remained through the night, and in tko morniag, having beeu viewed by the coroosr, was removed to the ^ecea^d's bo&rdiug houee, on Fore stiee'. whence It wi'l probably be buried to day.

Aa to the principal oauses wbicb produce! this un happy result, thera oan be but one opinion. The oou rne which Mr. Dow has pursued in the execution of tbo no* hqnor law, ruthlessly searching private dwellings and paekages coming by (team boat or ex press, an t disregard tag what had ever heretofore been regarded as the *a ?ved right* of citizen*, has done mncn to irritate ant exeM* hostile feeling against him and his officers. They have eel *?d liqurr wherever they could And tt, without warrant, and have treated it, and Its owners, a* if the article was entirely outlined ; ae if the formalities nf law were of little importance in disposing of it Mr. Dow and his m'nions have adopted just the course of proceeding, wfreh Elder Feck made an occasion for hoa'<tinir at tbe reoent tpmper?noe convention in Bos'on He told tbe assembly there, that they had got so in Msion that they seized liquors wherever they could And them, and that tbey got the warrant* when convenient. This spirit, mani fested on tbe part of the authorities, has proiuod a deep seated bitterness in the community. To add to tals, Mr. Dww naked of the eity jjovroment at its lvst meet ing, aa appropriation of two thounand dollars to pay in former* nnder the law, and the Aldermen votei it. The dnnnon Council laid the ordtr on the tabl* a', tlie time ; hot as U ere la a large majority of Mr I)ow's su'elHte* in that body, It waa presumed he would drive them Into voting this approprist on for o.raps and spies and thus add ?not her aggravation to hisa'readv odious manner of executing the law. then came the devMopement in re gard to the wholesale purchase of liquor by Mr l*>w, and tbe attempt of the Aldermen on Saturday to <-U>\k tm transaction alter tbe warrant bad b?en obtained for Its seizure, and before It was served. Tbe impression was pretty strong that the law was to be thus cheated; and that both Mr Daw aud the liquors were by unfair mesne to escape the penalty mated out hy him with a high band In other eases. there waa a pretty strong current of fealiag that no great moral or legal wrong wouM be dona by letting Mr. Daw's liquor into the gutter (the commen receptacle for the article beTe, and no dooht tbe heat one when proper jy got into ft,) and it waa this feeling on the part of a j ??? a*d eanoait; an the put ?' othsie, whloh tki'imaklii* M Mar4u ni^ht- th* wwtt that MJ jr/.rtb.M\jr.kte4 h.i s\t.w, ? * ?

At la etriy hour in 'he evening there was a large crowd mound tne bnlJdtag A little alter eight o'cloir, tbe Marshal, with some six or eight police, armed wth pistol-, tn t-red tbe ro>m where the Hqucre were stored. About half pant tight the mob began to throw atones against ibe door on Cong-ess street, breaking out the plsss in tbe upper putt of the door. The Marshal thea gave orders te the police to keep on either side of the door, to aa te be out of teach of any stones that might come in, and not to fire their pistols until some one should atttmpt to enur. In the meantime, the marshal repeatedly cautioned the mob to desist, upon ptrtl of their 1 ves, and in the ceurteof tbe e veiling tley were ordered to disperse by the sheriff of tbt county, snd alto by the Mayor. At length one man, wfco appeared to be a ringleader in tbe mob ctn>e to the door, swearing horrible oathn, and using rr o it. insulting and violent language towards tbe pehce in tie room, lie called them "a pack of damned cowards," challenged them to Are. and tanntod them by laying that tney did not dare to An. Than be harangued the mob, urg ng tbem to come on, assuring tbem that there was no danger; that tie police were cowards, and had only blank cartridges, and did not dare fire upon tbem even if they had ball Tbe marshal sgtin warned him upon peril of his life not to attempt to enter the room But under his leadership the mot made a violent ruth for the door, which, however, proved too strong for them. Tbe police U en fired, but Intentionally aimed over their heads, hoping to frighten, and thus avoid the ne cessity of killing rhis checked tbem for a few mi nutes; but the Fsme voice was again heard rallying the mob. assuring them tbat nosody waa hurt; tbat they were only blank cartridges, &c , &c., and another rush waa made foi tbe door, the leadar reaching in and at ttmpting 10 nnbsr it. The police then fired with effect. One man. tamed P.obb ns, a* we are informed ? a mate of an EaMport vetsel? fell dead, or mortally wounded, clrae by the door ; and it is supposed he was tbe man who bad been to busy In inciting the mob, as that volte was cot again beard during the evening. Of ibis, how* ver, the police are not certain, as they were not able clearly to distinguish objects in the dark *cm and contusion. Prior, however, to this firing by the police, a military company?
