To tht Editor of the /Ye.* It was the privilege of your correspondent, on Thursday evening last, to attend the clos ing exercises ol the winter term of the Eaton Hoarding School. The school, as many of your readers are aware, was established in the year lSud, by iter.. II. M. Eaton, the father of its present proprietor. Since that time its popularity has been steadily increasing, and it is now justly ranked among the first of our New England Hoard ing Schools for boys. The term just concluded, commenced in Xovember last, under the charge of its lor mer principal, Mr. H. F. Eaton, who, relum ing after au absence of two years, a part of which time has been spent in the army, on as suming his former position, united the inter ests of proprietor to that of principal. This term lias proved the most successful that the school has enjoyed siuce its coinmeucement, and the closing exercises reflected great cred it on both teachers and pupils. ai auoui i ociock, r. m., me iricnas as sembled received a summons to appear iu the pleasant school-room of the institutiou, where, after a few remarks from the principal in re gard to the system employed iu teaching, the audience were agreeably entertained for up wards of an hour and a half, by declamations from the various pupils. These declamations were of a character not often surpassed even iu our higher institutions of learning. At the close of these exercises the prizes for the term were awarded by the committee ap pointed for that purpose. The prize for spel ling in the first class was awarded to Win. II. liuxton, of Yarmouth. In the second class, the prize was awarded to Isedro liieager, of - For greatest improvement iu penman ship, the prize was awarded to Ernest Han son of —— The annual prizes for composi tion and declamation are. awaided at the ex hibition, at the close of the summer term. After the conclusion of the literary perfor mances, the company again proceeded to the spacious sitting room, where, an hour was spent iu “social converse," alter which the as sembly dispersed, thanking the host ami host ess for tlie pleasant entertainment atl'orded, and convinced that they merited the coiill .deuce ol their palrous, and the prosperity which evidently awaits them. The summer term commences on the sec ond Monday in May, and it is gratifying to the friends of the institution to kuow that the prospect fora full term is highly auspicious. That Mr. Eatou is worthy of the patronage of all those interested in the welfare aud ad vancement of the cause of education, is a fact clearly demonstrated by the faithful and suc cessful manner iu which lie lias discharged his trust to his pupils during the past few years, and he has the satisfaction of knowing that he is at least rewarded by the respect of those whose privilege it has been to be under his in struction. That his future career may be as successful os bis past has been faithful, is the earnest ur iu It A V.,..*..., From a Passenger on the Steamer Conti nental. A correspondent of the Bangor Whig, under date ol Hilton Head, March 2Gth, who was a pass enger on the Steamer Continental which left tills city On the 19th of March with Co. A and a part of Co. B, 2d Maine Cavalry on hoard, and the ship Frank Boult iu tow, says: Monday morning, March 21st, our an ticipations of fair weather were abruptly ended by meeting a severe gale which threat ened every moment to drive the two vessels together, which would have been instant de struction to ail on hoard. We held on to her until she became unable to steer alter us, ow ing to the fierceness of the gale, when we cut her loose lor the safety of each. We were then otf Cape Henry, lat. 30: 50, loo. 14: 50. Our ship was soon after brought to, and for eighteen hours we hauled with the elements which appeared determined oil our destruc tion ; and notwithstanding our utmost exer tions tweuty-three of our horses were killed l»y being thrown dowu aud trampled to death under each others feet. We succeeded at last iu out weathering the gale and It ore way on our course, but the fates seemed to be against us, for scarcely had we got our ship cleared of the dead carcasses of the horses, and cleared up, when the heavens once more w arned us that wc had not yet escaped the storm king’s dreadful power, and again at 12 o'clock, Thursday night, the btorm hurst upon us in all Its fury. We were then iu lat. 02: 30, Jon. 80: 30 steering lor Key West, where it was the intentioneto coal up. The gale sub sided on Friday aud as wc were getting short of coal we changed our course, aud bore away for Hilton Head — it being the nearest port —to replenish our stock, and repair damage*. We reached here this (Saturday) afternoon, aud intend to proceed on our voyage on Mon day, aud we hope to reach New Orleans with out further accident. The Prosperity ol Portland. The following tribute to our city will be doubly prized when it is remembered that it comes from a rival—extorted by the “ logic of events." it is from the Boston Traveller, which says: No Atlantic city is probably increasing faster in commercial importance than Port land. Let any one watch the arrivals and de partures of vessels from that port, as reported iu the daily papers, and they will he astonish ed at the magnitude of its present trade. It is only a lew years since Portland aud Salem were about equal as regards the amount of foreign commerce, but Salem lias been losing, until hardly a mjuare-Klgyeil vessel can be seen at its wharves; its commerce has nearly all been transferred to Boston, and were it not for a few colliers and coaster*, .with coal, bark, wood, aud lumber, its wharves would lie deserted. But Portland, by its splendid railroad facilities, is a great distributing point, »nd its noble harbor is alive with vessels in ward bound and outward bound. Once Port land’s entire business was the Cuba trade, but now it has a large direct European business. By its dally Hue of stea'tners to Boston, it can supply its market with foreign goods of all descriptions, and also with the innumerable products of the manufactures of Massachu setts: so that the country dealers of Maine can supply themselves from Portland nearly as well as from this metropolis; and with su gar and molasses at much cheaper rates.— Since the decline of commerce of Salem, Gloucester, Newburyport, New Bedford, Providence and Newport, the eulire commerce of New England centres in Boston and Port land. These two cities, by their fine harbors, and great avenues of distribution, will import for this eutirc section for many years, and we know of no rival port that can compete with them. With two such harbors, and with such splendid yvhaTves and warehouses, we should not permit so much of our Importing and ex porting trade to be transacted at New York. It is full time that this suicidal policy was stopped; and to effect this change there should be perfect harmony in tbe councils of both Boston and Portland. All Extensive Programme — (Vbat the Rebels Propose to Do. The Montgomery (Ala.) Mai! of a recent date says: Early in the coming spring) with our trans Mississippi army, we must 'invade Missouri, and with Gen. s army we must invade Ohio, and with Geu. Johnston's army move through Kentucky aud Tennessee into Indiuua and Illinois; without this if we remain at home, and attempt to defend a thousand' points from a thousand attacks from an ene my commanding our seaboard and navigable rivers, with ample means for transferring their armies where they choose, and with every part of our territory assailable to cav alry raids, our agriculture will be ruiued aud our manufactories will be destroyed. Let us invade them with our whole force. Missouri. Kentucky, Maryland, aud the “cop perheads” will swell our ranks. We want food, raiment, and gold. Let us go aud take what we need. The army will receive the order, “Forward to the North” with a shout. There let them stay until our ruthless iuva ders call for peace. Better die there with arms iu our hands than starve here or expire in chains. The best protection we can give those we leave bebiud will be to get the helpless of the North as hostages in our power. If our trans-Mississippi army advances up on St. Louis, and the Virgiuia army upon Pittsburg aud Ohio aud Pennsylvania, unless the w hole Federal army is withdrawn from the South to defend Ohio and Missouri, Pitts burg, Cincinnati aud Chicago will be cap tured by General Lee, and Ohio, Indiana aud Illinois will be overrun by our forces, and Missouri w ill be rescued. But if the Federal army should be withdrawn, as it certainly will be, or else, if it should be greatly weakened to defend St. Louis and Pittsburg, Gen. John ston can without difficulty advance to the Ohio aud liberate T( and Kentucky. It is perfectly dear that the invasion of tile North will effect these prime objects. 1. It will free the whole-South from the presence of the federal army. The militia garrisons and our troops not in a condition to march, can protect our homes against the small force they may have to barrass us. -• It will supply us w.itli all the horses, equipments, clothing and articles ol every kmd needed by our soldiers. U. Tlie retaliatory infliction of the horrors of war will make the North desire peace, aud make foreign nations sec that we have the power to annoy our enemy aud dispose them to recogni/.e us. 4. It will double our army instead of de pleting it. •">. It will end the war in our favor in one year.
