THE DAILY PRESS. I'ORTliANU Mill* -..— Thursday Morning, March 31, ls«4. ■--->4. # »' -“ The circulation of the Daily Pre»» in laryer than any other Daily paper in the State, and double that of any other in Portland. — I Kitus—sr.W per year : If paid tiddly in ml vamee n ditomnt of #1.00 aril I he mol'. Shipbuilding ill Portland. Capitalists in this city and vicinity arf now turning their attention to vessel-bulldin'; more than formerly, especially to the build ing of steamboats of various sizes and models Among those who have been iu the business in this city for several years, and are -dll ac tively engaged in it, U Joseph \V. Dyer, Ksip, who succeeded his father in the business, and has continued to carry, on, to a greater or less extent, for twenty-five years. Ills ship yard is favorably located, on the ( ape Kliza betii side of the harbor, nearly opposite Cen. tral wharf. Mr. Dyer has built the present season a steamboat of the size and model of the Gen. Berry,for Messrs. Ross A- Sturdevant and oth ers. She is now receiving her machinery from the Portland Co’s, works, and will pro bably go into government service, She is called the ‘'Gen. Howard,” a very appropri ate name, for the position she is to occupy, He has now on the stocks a ship of ObO tons burthen, which will he ready to launch iu July. Mr. Dyer gives employment to thirty or for ty men at wages ranging from 91,10 to 92,(0 per (lay. His long experiance in the business towhicb he devotes bi« personal attention,gives him advantages such as cannot lie gained iu any other way. His vessels are found in near ly every hariior, and the sails ol his ships whiten every sea. Mr. Geo. W. Lawrence, in addition to the “Iron-Clad’’ of which wc have given a very full account in the Press, and which is pro gressing finely, the inner vessel being nearly completed, is building at his ship yard, near the western Depot, a bark of almut 4o0 tons burthen, it is to be thoroughly built, of the beat material, and be ready for launching about the first of June. A gunboat, built by Mr. Lawrence, will be ready for service this week. It i« of the same size and model as the Agawatu, and is to be called the Pontoo siek. She is to be commanded by Lieut. Geo. A Stevens. Mr. Lawrence has facilities for building gunboats and monitors equal to any other yard In New England. He has machinery of the most approved construction and buildings admirably adapted to the busi ness. He is now giving employment to about 200 men in various departments to whom he is paying from 81 wO to 83,00 per day, besides giving a large amount of work, to mechanics not iu his immediate employ The enterpriz.s. and energy of Mr. Lawrence, exhibeted in his efforts to introduce the busi ness of building iron-dads into our city, are deserving the commendation ol our citizens, and we trust will meet that -uccesv they so richly merit. Messrs. W. d- A. Curtis have receutly es tablished & ship yard on the easterly side of Munjoy Hill. They have already tilled in quite a large tract, on which they have erect ed a shop 80 feet long and fifty feet wide for the accommodation of carpenters, ioiners. caulkers, &c. This shop is to he extended as the business may require. They have al go a hlack-sniith shop completed, and will soon have all the facilities of a long established yard. They have already built and launched a steamboat, called the J.ady Lang, which is now receiving her machinery at the Port land Co’s, wliarf. This steamer is to be ready to goon the route, between this city .and Ban gor about the 10th of May. She is said to be a staunch aud fast boat aud L to he under the command ofCapt. lioix.go well and fav orably known as the pilot of the Daniel Web ster and more recently as commander of the Harvest Moon. The Messrs. Curtis are now building a steam er of about 310 tons burtheu, tube ready to laouch about the first of June. She is to run between B Htoa and Gloucester, aud commanded by Capt. Gregory, who super intends bar building. If machinery can be obtained, a steamer ol 700 tons is to be built in the same yard, the present season. The convenience of loading aud unloading, either from vessels or cars is exceeded by no other shipyard in the State. A new 6hip yard has been receutly establish ed near the eastern end of the Grand Truuk Bridge which crosses near Tukey's bridge by Messrs Russell Winslow & Lewis. This is said to be an excellent location for a ship yard and no labor or expense will be spared to put it iu good condition. Mr. Russell has, been in the shipbuilding business iu Pembroke for ltt years, where lie has built a large num ber of vessels of various sizes. Messrs Russell, Winslow aud others are pre paring to build a hark of 400 tous burtheu. Messrs Chase Brothers, and others of this city, and are getting out timber fora second lark, to lie built this season. .Shops of vari ous kinds are being erected in the most sub stantial and convenient manner, and we hare no doubt tlie sound of the ux and hammer will b’ heard there during winter as well as summer. Cspt \\ illiarn M. Merrell is building a bark at his ship yard, near ttie eastern end of Tu I..L1Gt/i ... 1 . I n - ——19 » wu II, KU inrwis, Yealoa A Hale anil others, to !*■ commanded by captain Hiram Libby. Mr. Ilenjamin Picket,oil the Cape Elizabeth aide, is building a bark of about 150 tons bur then, for Captain William Pitta and others. There are now in process of completion, or in readiness* to be commenced, in Ibis city • and immediate vicinity, one ahip, four bark-, live steamboats.op.e gunboat,ami one iron-clad monitor, tosides, two steamers, and several other vessels are undergoing thorough repairs. The aggregate tonnage of vessels building is about 7500 tons. There U no good reason why ship building, and especially steanilroat building, may not he carried on extensively in this city uud immediate vicinity. The facilities lor get ting timber certainly as good as in any other place in the State, and it is a very de sirable place for mechanics to reside, the ex pense of living being little more tlran in other places on the sea board. It is one of the be-t branches of business to build up a town or city, as it gives employment to a larger num ber, and a better c!a-s of mechanics, in pro portion to the capital employed, liiau almost any other branch of busine-s. There is nothing that affords a more cheering hope of the permanent prosperity of our city than the recent introduction of manufacturing of va rious kinds, and among them none i- more important, in our estimation, than Ship building, which we hope to see increasing as the demand may warrant. £y The first commission to a colored otti cer has just been issued to Second Lieuten ant Snell of Western New York, who took the place of Fred Douglass's son, disabled in a Massachusetts regiment. mt nmtmmmmmammmmmmmmmmmmmimmmmmmm ~r --—----— Taxable Property o< i.hpCity, The valuation of the city, &3 shown by lb; boots of the Assessors, indicates a decline it 18d2 from the preceding year, of $*i7,000 oi Heal Instate, and $9P,2U0 on Personal proper ty, aud a decrease of nineteen in the ntnnbei of Polls. The valuation for 1803, on the contrary, in dicatcs an increase on the preceding year o j the most gratifying character. It shows an addition to the Itcal Hstate of #83,700, and ti tlie Per-unal propeity of #1,710,<300, and an increase of 004 in the number of Polls.— Aliout #500,000 of this inereaso ol Personal properly is to be pat down to the account ol liauk stock owned by non-resideuts out oi j the Slate. But for this increased amount of taxable property the rate of taxation would have been about one-fourth of one per cent, more than it actually was. So much conies of carefully looking up the taxable property of the city, in equalizing the burdens of the government. It is hoped the Assessors for the present year will push their investigations to the farthest reasonable lim its, for the more property is revealed by such investigations the less the rate of taxation, and the less the burden imposed upon those who make a full and fair exhibit of the prop erty upon which they arc liable to pay taxes. The amount of taxes for State, county aud municipal purposes, for the current year, will necessarily he large, and no oue should feel aggrieved at bearing his just proportion of the burden; no really patriotic and public-spirit ed man will feel thus aggrieved, but he will feel it a privilege'not less than a duty to put his shoulder to the wheel, and to do his whole duty in this matter. There is a great deal of laud lyiug idle iu various parts of the city, which, if put into the market would be built upon or otherwise improved, and thus the valuation would be largely increased. Our idea is, that all such property should bo taxed for what it would readily command if offered for sale. It is not a sufficient argument for non-taxation that the property is unproductive. It may be so only I localise its rise in value by the general growth of the city, Is supposed by the owner to lie more than it would pay by improving it. If this be so there is no good reason why it should not he taxed in proportion to it* in creased value. It should lie taxed enough, at any rate, to make it for the interest of the owner, either to sell so that others may im prove, or to improve it himseli, and thus in crease the tax-paying property of the city.— If lenity is to lie shown to any it should be to the public-spirited; to those who are striving to build up the city, to enlarge its borders and to increase its business. bolution ol the Black Pioblem. Refering to the exultant spirit with whicli tlte Copperhead seems to regard every fail ure of efforts made to improve or elevate the condition of the colored people, the New York Tribune says: Being informed that the plau ol Colonizing the Freedmen is a partial failure, he bursts into a complacent rapture, and ejaculates the standard formula, "I told you so!" with a renewed relish. But what, pray, would the man have? Is he for the permanent and eternal Slavery of the Blacks ? You cauuot get him to say so. Is lie for extending equal privileges to the Blacks? Not lie! Then is he for Colonization ? Why, he Is especially i delighted when a small Colonization enter prise promises not to succeed very well. The i truth is, he welters about in the waters of uncertainty—lie has no plan—he has no poli cy— he forgets that States have a future no le‘» than a pretest—he Is for ridding us of an evil imply by the closing of our eyelids. Thatexperimcut, too, we confidently prog nosticate will be a laiiure liotli laughable and lamentable. It a simple solution of this Black Problem is all that is desirable, without any considera tion of good faith, brotherhood or benevo lence, we have a plan, which if lirmly and fe rociously carried out, will rid the land at I once of this uncomfortable population. This is simply to slit the weasauds of all colored I people, without distinction of *cr<' nr spy . Omcial butchers might he appointed to su perintendent this humane slaughter, and if the salaries were made large enough, we be lieve the ollices would he tilled without any delay or dilliculty. Something might be done with a guillotine, worked by steam, and fur nislieil with all modern motive appliances, so that the sweet work of redeeming slaughter might go briskly on, aud society soon he washed white in the blood of the. Black. “HorribleI" exclaims some tender-hearted iloughlaee! "Dreadful!” lisps some nervous tine lady ! “Blasphemous!” roars The Journal ; of Commerce, the sex of which we do not j pretend to determine. Not half so dreadlul, : not half so horrible, Sir or Madam, answer I we, as to grant these poor creatures life while you would deprive them of all that makes life lovely amt desirable! How would you like to live, still degraded, despised and down trodden—scorned of your fellow-crea tures—cut ofl'fr m more than a moiety ot the activities and ambitious of life—with only an inheritance of hatred and contempt to give to your poor children? Blasphemous, indeed! We are not so learned in theology as some of our neighbors, but we can imagine no bitterer blasphemy than the assumption that the good Cod has created a race of men, w ith the in stincts but without the power of progress— that He has put a Tantalus soul into each ol these sable bodies, and bo left millions of his children at the inercey of insatiable desires and ridiculous impulses. He is the blasphe mer w ho attribute* to the Deity this work of the Devil. He is the atheist who charges upon the Creator the crimes of the creature!

Terrible Catastropht near Siibfielh Eno. Great Loss of Life.—The London News of the 14lh inst. coulainsjtn account oi ■ the. terrible freshet near Shellield, Lug. from which we take the following extract. The bridges that formerly crossed the stream have been swept away to their foun dation stones, and the district which, the stream divide are sepcrated by a rushing tor rents of water. The lowest estimate that was put on the loss of life exceeded 100. Whole lauillies were swept away with their dwellings and not a trace remained of the thriving and industrious artizans who sought their beds last night unconscious of the dreadful fate that has so suddenly lielalleu them. A forge upou a headland near the junction of the two streams was swept away with all its heavy machinery, and two men who were working at the hammers were among the first victims in this locality. The volume of water there seems to have entirely swept away oue row of cottages, a«d destroyed the back wall of another row, leaviugonly the front wall and some portion of the tlooriug in a precarious state. Among the first houses that fell, was the Stag, a public house, kept by a person named Arinitage. The family numbered 11 persons, and they were all drowned. At a place called the Xeepsend Tan-yard the build ings suflered severely. Further down the river, near the Wire, stood a large house whose foundations were by the side of the stream, and from this nine inmates were res cued not two minutes before the house was swept away by the flood.
