Wreck op the Bohemian—We have up on our table a very life-like view of the wreck of the Bohemian, or rather of the wild seeth ing waters, as in their mad fury they dash upon the rocks at Broad Cove, throwing up the drift from the ill fated steamer, photo graphed by Messrs. B. F. Smith dr Son, from a painting by Mr. II. It. Brown. The picture is about six by nine inches, and will look well in a frame, as a sad memento of one of the most distressing calamities that ever occurred in this vicinity. ' jyintelligence has been received of Capt. Geo. L. Ulrick, ot this city, first officer of ship Asterion,which vessel was wrecked on Baker's Island in the Pacific, last December. After the vessel was wrecked, Capt. Ulrich and live men started in a whaleboat for Howland's Island to engage a vessel to take off the wrecked crew. As nothing had been beard from the boat for several mouths, it was feared it was lost. Capt. i'lrick telegraphs that he has arrived safely at Sau Francisco. Narrow Escape.—A crazy drunken fel low , named Gage, drew a revolver in Tobin’s shop, on Eore street, Monday evening and dis charged it among those assembled there. For tunately no one was hit and the crowd was more scarred than hurt. A crowd collect ed outside and Gage tired among them, hut did not succeed in hitting any one. Police* meu Floyd and Montgomery were soon at the spot and took Gage to the lock-up. sr The complimentary benefit to the Camp Berry Baud last evening, was a brilliant and successful affair. There were plenty of dancers ou the floor and many spectators in the proceuium and at the sides of the hall. The affair was happily conductod and all en joyed a pleasant time. The Band, we learn, is ordered to joiu the 7lh Maine regiment,and will leave immediately. 2y Harrington, the ventriloquist, mimic and prestidigitateur, will give iris first exhibi tion this eveuiug at Doeriug Hall. There will he fun enough to satisfy the crowd. Harring ton is au adept at the busiuess, having prac tised it for twenty-five years, and always draws crowded houses. The New Gymnastics.—It should not be forgotten that a class for juveniles will be formed at Mr. Bradford's gymnasium, this af ternoon, at d o’clock. All interested in the formation ol a class for adult*, are invited to be present this evening at 7 1-2 o'clock. By Ail advertisement relating to the om nibus running between Munjoy and the Post office, appeared iu our columus yesterday by mistake. The omnibus on that route was taken off a week since, and how the “ad" got into our copy drawer, is a mystery. jy The May uumber ol the I.ady's Friend has been received of A.

Jjy The receipts of the Xew York Fair up to Saturday night were $895,000. y a vexed question—the location of the Town house in Wells. tS“ Senator Wade and Representative Gooch, have gone West to investigate the Fort Pillow massacre. A small school house was burnt on Sunday evening, 10th iust. It was probably the work of an incendiary in Iiangor. Ef"An augur found its way into six casks of liquor, in Lewiston, a few days since, and the liquor found its way out upon the ground. y A couple got married in Lewiston, a few days since, lived together about 24 hours, and then sued for a divorce. y-Mr. Geo. Allen, jr., the Principal of the Hancock school in Boston, lies danger ously ill at his residence in Chelsea. A petition is being circulated in Lew iston requesting the city authorities to close up the liquor shops. STAn lnsuccessfnl attempt was made to break into the safe of the Lewiston Steam Mill Company on Saturday night, says the Journal. y The Eastport Sentinel says that Maj. G. W. Sabine, of that town, was recently thrown from his horse and considerably though not dangerously injured. 5#“ Among the persons killed by the ex plosion of the gunltoatCheuangoinXew York harbor, was Johu White, acting 3d assistant engineer.

Converse, Esq., of 1 lamariscotta, has been appointed Judge of Probate of Lincoln County. An excellent appointment. jy* A man named Jefferds, under arrest in New York for murder, has presented a re volver to the New York Fair. The weapon was in no way connected with the alleged crime of the donor. Ey The Bangor Whig says, Frauk Ketch urn, who was arrested in that city for alleged defalcation in the Commercial Bank, of St. John, has been released from custody, matters having bceu satisfactorily adjusted with the Bank. jar Gen. Howard takes with him to his new command but a portion of his old staff, but among them are Colonel Hayes, Major Howard, and Captains Stiusoii and Gilbraith, of this State. Mr. Frauk B. Gilman, former ly of the Merchants’ Bank, Portland, is now a member of his staff. Ey Has the Argus lost prestige, or is the dog a little ahead of the fax ? The official notice of the Democratic Congressional Con vention for the 2d District, composed of Sag adahoc, Androscoggin, Franklin and Oxford, to meet in Auburn, May 11th, for the choice of Delegates to Chicago, appears in the Ad vertiser but not in the A rtjux. jy The editorial moralizing of the Argus yesterday, on the alleged request of a mur derer to have the proceeds of the sale of Ins revolver to swell the sword vote for Gen. Grant, was stolen from the New York World. If the story la true it proves nothing, except that a man though charged with murder, may still have some seusible notions remaining. jy "The New York World, said to lie the organ of the Wall atreet brokers and gold speculators, says: “If Mr. Lincoln would on ly get rid ol Chase and bis schemes, and Con gress put a competent tlnancier in Stevens’s place at the head of the Committee of Ways and Means, we might see daylight; but under the present management we are certain to go from bad to worse.’’ jy At a meeting of Co. A, State Guards, held last evening, the resignation of Capt. Beals was accepted. Subsequently, Lieut. Cyrus Latham was elected Captain, and Clias. 1). Thornes was elected First LieuLenaut and Frauk H. White,Second Lieutenant. We un derstand that about twenty of the members of this Company have enlisted for the war since its organization.

Our cavalry of the 3d and 4th divisions of the 13th Army Corps, after a hard fought battle, were put to rout by a largely superior rebel force. Gen. Stoneman was in command of the movement. The 19th Army corps Anally came up and checked the enemy. Our loss was over 2,000. The reb els also lost heavily. Gen. Ransom, who com manded the 3d and 4th division*, was wound ed in the earlier part of the light. The Chi cago Mercantile battery lost all its guns and officers and 20 men.

Gen. Ran som, in commaud of the 2d and 4th divisions of the 13th Corps, was ordered to send for ward a brigade, and he did so. At noon he followed with the fourth division. After ad vancing about Ave miles from whero the 3d division of his commaud and the 19th Corps were encamped, the rebels made a stand, and our line, consisting only of 2,400 infantry, formed in a belt of woods with an open Aeld in front of the enemy in the woods on the oth er side. Gen. Stone, of Ball’s Bluff' fame, chief of Gen. Banks’ staff, was ou the Held and took the direction of movements. Gen. nansuin was 111 iavor oi auvauciug only in force, but bis wish was disregarded. After a skirmish across the field for’about an hour, the enemy advanced on us in overwhelming num bers, estimated at 10,000. Gen. Ransom got all the available troops to tho front, and open ed on them. The enemy lost heavily, but ad vanced steadily; soon all the cavalry gave way and fell back. The panic of the cavalry so demoralized the army that the retreat be came a general rout. The General did all in his power to rally the men, but finding it im possible without reinforcements, he made every effort t<f save the artillery. While en deavoring to get the Chicago Mercantile Bat tery off, Gen. Ransom was wounded in the leg, and Capt. C. E. Dickey, his Adjutant,was instantly killed. The battery lost all its guns. Our loss was large, probably 2000. While the 4th Division was falling track in disorder, the ,3d Division, numbering only 1800 men. came up and was immediately routed. Finally, the 191b Army corps, with 7000 men, came up and checked the enemy and held the ground until we got off all the trains, except that of the cavalry.

The Commercial's Washington dispatch has a rumor that Gen. Halleck has placed his re signation in the hands of the President aud will insist on its acceptance. The Post's Washington dispatch says Mr. Morrill's proposition to add twenty-tire per cent to custom duties until the tariff bill can be passed, will probably be agreed to. The rates of taxation under the new bill will be largely increased by the Senate. If Congress should hesitate in adjusting the taxation in such a manner as to afford immediate relief.it is said the President will send in a special message on the subject. The Commercial's dispatch says Senator Mclfaugal will make another effort to-day to iuduce the Senate Committee on Foreign Re lations to take some action on his Mexican resolution. front Huafilegion.

Morrill and Stebbins in favor of the tax bill, and expressed himself in favor of making it even more productive to the treasu ry, with a corresponding increase in the tariff. The Naval Investigating Committee have nearly concluded their labors. The report of the majority will undoubtedly exonerate the dcpartuient*whilo Seuator Hale will probably make a minority report on the corruption in making contracts.

Breck inridge as desirious of catering the service of the South in some capacity, and safely recom mending him as a faithful man.

Davis, remarking that Mr. Davis was formerly a member of Congress from In diana, and the predecessor of Mr. Voorhies. Mr. Voorhies, of hid., replied that the let ters which Mr. Garfield had produced were not origiual, hut only what purported to he copies, lie would say to Mr. Garfield that Mr. Davis is one of the most distinguished wen iu Indiana, and perhaps is at this time dying on a bed of sickness. There was noth ing traitorous about him. He (Voorhies) might pronounce these letters false and spuri ous. • Mr. Garfield replied that he wished the gen tleman (Mr. Vooreies) would do so. Mr. Voorhies said in reply, that as it would not suit him to do so, he would not pursue that course. It being now half-past 4 o’clock, the House took a recess until 7 o’clock. KVKNIN'O SKSSKIN.
