THE DAILY PRESS. POBTt.AHD MAIN* . -- Wednesday Morning, April JI, IHC4. ,__—# *—-■ The circulation of the Daily Pre»» is larger than any other Daily paper in the State, and double that of any other in Portland. Him -*7 00 per year: if paid etrictly »» ail •ones a diiouioo qf *1.00 will be made. The Pioneer ol the Aroostook Country. Oneot the pleasantest towns in Maino is the frontier town of Houlton. We know of no more beautiful rural landscape than is to be seen from the “barracks” in that town. To the North directly on the state line, is “Mars Hill”—not the spot on which an apostle stood to admonish the Idolatrous Athenians, and to preach the “Unknown Hod” whom they had worshipped only in their ignorance, but the Mars Hill which Kuglish diplomat**, prior to the compromise settlement of the “Northeas tern Boundary,” iusisted was the “Highlands” referred to in the treaty of ’8U, marking the northern termination of the line separating Maine from the "Bluenose” country. Mars Hill is verdaut to its very summit, and wheat fields yield their golden grains high up its sides, la all directions from the poiut of ob servation in Uoultou above referred to, is to be seen, in the distance, unbroken forests, snd yet there is a large tract of couutry of which Houlton is the centre, having all theusual ev idences of being an old country, so far as its freedom from stumps, its substantial fences, its level, well-tilled fields and its comfortable buildings are concerned; aud the stranger finds it difficult to reconcile the panorowa spread out around him with the fact that all this work of improvement, all this conversion ol the wilderness into a fruitful field, has been the work of the present century; and yet such is the fact. Indeed, not only was the first opening in the wilderness made within the r,*.>snnt onntnrv lint tin* ii'ft11 14 now living in Houlton who felled the first tree. This was in 180S—fifty-eight years ago. The Bangor Whig publishes an interesting communication, giving some reminiscences of this man and his early efforts In behalf of the settlement aud civilization of our eastern country. His name is James Houlton, which seems to have been transmitted to the town which he and his father founded. He is now eighty years of age, but retains the appearance and vigor of a man of middle life. He was born In New Salem,“Mass., in 17*1, educated at the Academy lu that town, labored on bis father’s farm till he was tweuty-one years of age, and then started for the New Salem Academy Grant, now Houlton, iu the then District of Maine. His route from Boston was by a sailing vessel—steamers were a thing unknown at that time—to St. Andrews, N. B., in 1800. He left the vessel at Kast|>ort. and with another man paid eighteen dollars to a fisherman for a passage in his boat across the bay to St. John. He worked his way in a row-boat up tire river St. John to Oromocto, and walked from there to Frederickton, the scattered inhabitants along the road—a mere bridle path—refusing all pay for their hospi talities, glad, undoubtedly, to see a person from the outside world, and feeliug that they, —rather than, he,—were the obliged party. From Frederickton be made his way, on foot and in boats, to Woodstock, some dozen mites from the place of bis ultimate destination, and there taught school iu the winters of 1805-0 and 0-7. During the latter winter be went through the woods by a “spotted line,’’ or by “blazed trees,” as the phrase is out west, to Houlton. The military road was built from Bangor to Houlton in 1828. Previous to that time, the only mode of communication was by the streams and through the woods. Mr. Uoul ton states that in J unc, 1800, he started for New Salem, with Mr. Win. Grant and Mrs. Cook, in a birch canoe, up Kel river. He says, “we carried our canoe three or four miles, on “our shoulders, and then put It into Kel J,oke. “and crossed overSchoodic Lake, aud through “that into Penobscot waters. In three days “we made our tour from St. John waters to “Sunkhaze, about twelve miles above Ban “gor.” Mr. Houltou's father, who appears to have removed to Houlton, built the first log house iu the town. In 1810 the first grist-mill was built aud a small saw mill. The vigorous and hearty oelogeuariau lias been one of the “institutions” of the frontier. He was, before the present fine roads were opened, the'only “magistrate,” or Justice of the Peace in his bailiwick, aud clergymen be ing uncountable, be enjoyed a monopoly of the marrying business. A good anecdote is told of him by the Whig correspondent, it it on this wise: a couple called upou him to be “made one flesh.” To their great disap pointment they were informed by the magis trate that his commission had expired. This was a most unfortunate dilcmna.for the couple were on their way to Baugor, through the al most unbroken wilderness, aud would find it sufficiently difficult and perplexing to secure tvu^iii^a nu u avwiuiuuuauuuh aillUU^ yUO ■parse population when a single room and a single bed would suffice; what then was to be done when a single gentleman and a single lady were travelling in company? Mr.Houl tou saw and comprehended the difficulty, and bis tact w^s equal to the emergency. He said, though his commission had expired, be thought he could marry them long enough to get tiirouylt the woods, when they could have the union made perpetual. He did so, and they got through the woods without unrea sonable inconvenience. Bohemian Relict Subscription. The Committee of citizens appointed the day after the wreck of the ill fated Bohemian, to distribute funds raised lor the relief ot the sufferers by that terrible calamity, consisting ofMessrs. W. S. Dana, Andbkw Si-kino and Hknbv Wii.lih, made a report of their doings at a meeting of the- subscribers to the fund, at the Board of Trade rooms, on Mon day forenoon. Wc should have given their report in full yeaterday morning, but it was unavoidably crowded out. The report says: The whole amouut of funds received by your committee has been $1,087.20, of which they paid for the relief of one hundred and twenty-five passengers the sum of $700.44.— Of the amount received. $128 was generously raised by the Irish American Belief Society. As the principal object of this Society is to relieve the wants o! their own destitute cuuu trymen, your committee deemed it no more lhaQ right to say, that if all the funds were not disposed of they would, iu consideration of the charitable object of their association, return to them their proportion of Iheamouut not expended. We have accordingly, handed them $00, which leaves an amount iu our bauds unexpended of $4:10.70, the disposal of which is now subject to the vote of the sub scribers. The Committee, having conversed freely with subscribers in relation to the disposition ot the surplus fund, recommended iu disty butiou as follows: Widows’ Wood Society, $200,'70 Portland Provident Association, 100.00 Association for the Belief of Aged In digent Women, 100.00 Total, $436.70 la addition to money the committee re ceived. in response to their appeal, large quan tities of second-hand clothing, which was dis tributed among the prssengers, “supplying a much needed want, as not one of them had a change of garments." tin motion of Hon. W. W. Thomas a vote was unanimously adopted directing the distri bution of the surplus funds in the bauds of the committee in accordance w ilh the suggestions of their report. The I.ale Untiles on Kfd River. Nkw Oki.ka.N9, April 15, lBtH. To thr Editor or thr Press. We have had a severe battle in western Louisiana, in which the Maine 13th, -’bth aud ;SUth regiments were engaged. The rebel lorces attacked tbe advance column of our army on tbe 7th, in which the cavalry were engaged, und not being sufficiently supported by iufautry, they were obliged to fall hack with considerable loss. The next day tbe 13tli aud lbth army corps were engaged, and the fighting was terrific and desperate on both sides. Our army was obliged to fall back witli a heavy loss. On the 9th the battle was renewed under more favorable circumstances and the tide of battle was turned in our fa vor. The bravery of the Maine regiments was fully tested, and to. the lbth army corps, of whicli they form a part, is awarded the honor of preventing one of the greatest disasters of the war. Col. Fessenden, of the 30th Maine, with his regiment, was in the thickest of the fight, and was engaged both days; he is highly compli mented for his coolness aud bravery, and was fortunate to escape unhurt. After the battle he was put in command of a brigade. Major Royal C. Whitman was severely wounded; a ball passed through his hip, making four open wounds; he was also hit in the baud aud side. He is comfortable as can be expected at St. James hospital, in this city, aud will leave for Portland in a few days.— Capt Geo. Randall, of Co. L, was wounded in the shoulder,—doing well. Lieut. Strout was killed. There were about 70 privates in the 30tli Regt. killed and wounded. The stand ard of the regiment was struck twice, but was bravely defended bv Sereemnt Sliaw anti was borne in triumph from the field. Captain J. S. B. Ham, of Co. C, 14tb Maine, was wounded iu the hip, and is doing well. Lieut. Win. F. Freeman, of Portland, Co. F, wound ed in the thigh, also doing well. I lyjve seen these officers, and understand that Col. Beals' regimeut lost no officers but did good ser vice. The army was advancing at the time of at tack oa a narrow road, the column reaching along some fifteen miles. The rebels massed their forces at the outset, aDd met our scatter ed divisions as they advanced, and it was not until the third day that we met them with equal numbers, when the tide of battle turned in our favor. The rebels fought desperately, and lost largely. I have just come from the hospital and am unable to obtain any further information of the names of the wounded. The list is com plete as far as relates to the officers of the 20th and 30th. General Banks lias been rein forced, and it is expected he will give battle with entire success. R. _ •• The 13th Maine Regiment. This regiment was recruited under the aus pices of Col. Shepley and was mustered into the service in No"ember, 1861. It went to Ship Island where it remained until May, 186^, when it proceeded to New Orleans, and was the third regiment of Union troops that landed in that city'. In September following it proceeded to Carrolton, and thence to Col lege Point, about seventy miles up the Missis sippi river. It next moved to Baton Uouge and Port Hudson, and thence to New Orleans again. After remaining in that city a short time, it proceeded to Doualdsville, and was in the Teclie campaign and participated in the battle of Irish Bend. In the charge on Port Hudson it was one of the first regiments that led the assault, and afterwards it rendered uselul service in the erection of earthworks at Madisonville. It was then sent to Camp Parapet, in Carrolton, where it remained un til Its departure for home. Col. Shepley having been appointed Briga dier General, Lieut. Col. Kimball was appoint ed to the command. In addition to the com mand of this regiment, Col. K. has been de tailed to perform other service, in command ing detachments which have been sent out to perforin certain operations, and lie has gamed credit to himself by his proceedings. Major Hastings resigned his situation and Adjutant Edwin llsley, of Lewiston, was appointed to the Lient. Colonelcy. The following are the officers who have re turned with the regiment: Colonel—Win. K. Kimball. Lieut. Colonel—Edwin llsley. Surgeon—E. A. Thompson. Adjutant—Lagrange Severance. Acl’g Quartermaster—C. H. Boswell. Captains—Winter,Thompson, Packard,God dard, Sewell. First Lieutenants —Wiggin, Kimball, and Skillin. Second Lieutenants — Richardson, Bean, Ayer, and Bray. Col. Kimball had not arrived in the city yes terday, having stopped in Boston on import ant business. We hope when he does arrive a welcome will be extended to him and his gallant command, either by our City Authori ties or our citizens. Dry Dock Meeting.—A meeting of the Stockholders of the Portlaud Dry Dock Co. was held yesterday afternoon at the Mer chant’s Exchange — Jacob McLellan, Esq., presiding. The President informed the stockholders that the Directors were not ready to report upon a location for the dock, as Engineers were still engaged in boring. On motion of Mr. O. M.

An altercation followed, when Lilly drew a dirk and cut and stabbed somewhat promis cuously. The only one seriously injured was Charles Bean, of this city, who received a se vere gash across three of his ribs, and a smaller but more daugerous one in the abdo men. He was also cut ou the legs aud knuckles. Beau is quite low but likely to recover. All the parties were intoxicated.— Lilly is in jail, ORIGINAL AND 8KLKCTRD XP~’First page—Gen.

The platform was well represented by prominent citizens, the military and naval officers. Hon. L. D. M. .Sweat is at home on a brief visit. He shows the effects of hard work in his thin flash and care-worn countenance. As Mr. S. remarked to us, though the life of a new member at Washington has its pleasant side, yet the constant excitmeut, the labor consum ed in becoming well posted, the time occupi ed lu writing and answeiing letters, and the care uecesary to do justice to constituents in forwarding doccumeuls, render such a life any thing but a sinecure. We dare say the peo ple of the 1st District will be considerate and merciful to their Representative, and not re quire him to endure such labors and hard ships—to say nothing of the exposure to the corrupting atmosphere of the Federal Capi tal-more than a single term. Doubtless there are those in the District who will consent to make the neediul sacrifice in order that he may not be overtaxed.

The subject of salaries of teachers was ful ly- discussed and referred to the Committee of Estimates, who will report at the next regu lar meeting. It was agreed to hold the regular monthly meeting on the fourth Monday of each month. The Corrupting Power o( Greenbacks. The Argus, after an exultant paragraph on Gen. McClellan’s prospects of winning the great Sanitary Fair sword, is compelled to add a “P. S.," and then says in the most lach rymose tone: Since the above was in type we have re ceived the result by telegraph. It was as we hiuled some days since—the greenbacks of eboddyaudthe unremitting of the loyal lea £uer» proved too much for the friends of Gen. IcClcllac, foi though they are legiou they are not of the class drawing thousands of dollars from our poor country by rich salaries and contracts. The above ding at greenbacks, shoddy and contractors, is the finale to an article in which it is recorded with exultant spirit, that “Mrs. James Gordou liennetl subscribed $500 and a like number of votes for “Little Mac, "and that “Mayor Gunther registered twenty-six votes for Gen. McClellan.” The Liability ot Stockholders. The Boston Advertiser, in an artiicle on the National Banking law, regards the omission to forbid the paymeut of interest on deposites as a very serious defect. In allusion to this H says: The act forbids the issue of post-notes, but an equally mischievous practice, which is re jected by the soundest bankers of the coun try, is allowed. To permit this practice is to permit banks to become borrowers instead of lenders, and borrowers without limit,and pla ces the liability of the stockholders beyond all possible calculation. Hah.koad Accidest.—We learn that the freight train on the Grand Trunk railrood run olf the track near Island Pond, yesterday morning, at quarter past 5 o’clock, detaining the down passeuger train seven hours.
