It 1* a significant fact that the foreigu Min ister*, Consuls and Foreigners generally have expressed their decided opinion agamst the recent attack of Spain on Peru. And what Is equally significant is the iact that the American residents of Callao and 1-ima have held a public meeting in the latter city, over which E. G. Squire presided, a gentleman who 1* perhaps better posted up in relation to affairs In that section of this continent than any other American. At this meeting a series of resolutions were adopted with en tire unanimity, highly censuring the seizuio of the Chincha Islands by Spain. This seizure U characterized as a flagrant act of perfldy and a great outrage on the rights and sover eignty of the Peruvians, as well as a gross vio lation of international law by which all civi lized nations profess to be governed. The Guano Islands belong to Peru, aud they have held them in trust lor the interests of the agricultural wotld. This disturbance of their possession is a flagrant wrong on the part of Spain, and other nations will not re main idle and indifferent to such an outrage. And what gives 'more importance to this movement of old Spain is the suspicion of in telligent minds that France Is at the bottom of It. This inovemeut, no doubt, was con cocted at Madrid aud the Emperor of the French had a hand in it. lie is au adroit wire-puller, aud hi9 ambition kuows no bounds however artfully he may concesl it. Fugene's plastic hand may have rested on those councillors who planned out this move ment at the Capital of Spaio. She has power in Spain and mauy believe she exercises a godd deal of coutrol over Louis Napoleon. As a Catholic she is much more devoted to that peculiar worship than her husband. If she has any religion at all it is entirely under the influence of the Pope; but we have au im pression that Napoleon the Third is not a very religion* man in any sense of that term. His religion.will never embarrass him in the pursuit of any object to which his ambition leads him. Eugene has a sou, aud that sou has au ex ceedingly ambitious mother wbo is anxious that at some future day lie may occupy a high position in the world. His right to the throne of France may yet he contested, aud the aristocracy of that nation may not he sat isfied with a paroenue Prince, and surely the democratic element will always be against him, or any issue from such loins, llut all this aside. The French Emperor was unques tionably the master spirit of the movement that is about to place a monarch on a throne in Republican America. This movement from the first has been characterized by duplicity, adroitness and even trickery. The whole di plomatic correspondence on the part of Louis Napoleon and bis (ministers justifies us in using such terms. Let any one read this cor respondence and be will come to the same conclusion. A greater fraud was never com mitted in high circles, and yet the English Government has passed it tmh »ilentio, but not so with some ot their Reviews and public Journals whose editors have had the boldness to speak the truth in relation to this mat ter. From the present aspect of affairs we be lieve Louis Napoleon not satisfied with the limits of the possessions be now holds, but is anxious to have his power aud greatness felt < on this continent in spite of the “Monroe Doctrine,” or any influence that may inter vene to deprive him of this objective poiut of his over-reaching ambition. It is the repuhli- j can element of the present age that he most fears, au<i anything to counteract that he is inoat ready aud willing to adopt as his policy. To establish thrones and monarchies in this country, he fondly hopes is the readiest way to make his crown sit more easily upon his head, but the eyes of Republicans, both in 4tiA aI (1 anil nnui IVAtlil HIM nnnn I ■ i in un/I k. mlghtvs well attempt to extinguish “earth's central fires,'' as to stop the upiisiug of the spirit of Libert) which is now moving the hearts of the people. We trust the American people will ere long lie less embarrassed than they are at present, and will And leisure and opportunity to counteract these ambitious projects of the French Emperor, and to show him that lie must coniine himself within the present limits of his possessions. We think he has quite work euough in his own hands to take care ol the republican element in his own country—in his own city — without at tempting to erect thrones lu foreign lands. Lst him remember that he hti spirits at home who will not down at his bidding. — The Wounded at Washington. Rev. E. W. Jackson, chaplain at Armory Square Hospital, Washington, has our tbauk for his kindness in causing to be prepared lull ' reports of the wounded Maine soldiers recent ly brought to the hospitals of that city, hut we find by running over the list, that the uames, with few if any exceptions, are the tame as those furnished us by Mr. Brackett, at the Q. M. General's otllce. Mr. Brackett writes that all the wounded are to be brought to Washington, stopping at i Fredericksburg and other points on the w ay, j if at all, only temporarily, and that he will ; forward the names as fast as they are report- j ed. We do not think it worth while, therefore, | to copy all the lists forwarded by various par- ! ties, for by so doing we should only repeat the same sad catalogue over and over again. Mr. Chaplain Jackson says In a note, May 10tb, “ It is with us a busy time. We have 1 twelve hundred wounded men (not from ' Maine alone) to look after. * * * The lst Maine Heavy Artillery passed through here yesterday morning for the front in first rate tptrlti." The Union National Convention. The position of the Press iu relation to the time of holding the National Convention has been already defined. We have never doubt ed tbe wisdom of haviug the Presidential nom ination settled at an early day ; wehave never been able to appreciate tbe urgent appeals made by a few presses and in a few localities for a postponement of the nominating conven tion. We are aware that a lew papers of the first rank—the New York Evening Post one of them—have urged postponement, still there Is much truth as well as force in the following from the Baltimore Clipper. That paper says: The secret wire-pullers have not yet entire ly given up their efforts to have a postpone ment of the Convention called to meet in this city in June, to nominate candidates for Pres ident and Vice President. There lsnot asliad ow of prool that any considerable body ol tbe Union men of the nation desire the postpone ment; so far from it, the expressions ot confi dence iu Mr. Lincoln are almost unanimous, aud a demand with equal uoauiinity lias been made in nearly every State for his renoiniua tiou. The only State, indeed, that has failed to respond to this demand being New York, where no public Stale demonstration on the subject has been yet made, although a commu nication from State Senators, not united in by the Representatives, has been received by tbe National Committee, suggesting a postpone ment. Tbe condition of parties, in regard to the coming Presidential election, is probably un precedented. Instead of the office holders working aud intriguing fur tbe man iu office, at tlie bead of tbe party, and at » hose hands they have received their commissions, it is be lieved to be the case that the main oppostion to the undoubted wishes of the masses, who have no peculiar interest in the matter, save that proceeding from great national principh s, is from the office-holders. Mr. Arnold, an M. U. from Illinois, and we believe a member of the National Committee, iu tbe courseof some remarks, in a letter opposing the postpone ment, makes tbe following statement, which we believe to lie emphatically true—that it is a spontaneous expression of the wishes of the people, iliat Mr. Lincoln should be re-elected. 11 is not because other men are not to lie found fully equal to MV. Lincoln for the office, or that the President is fuultless, (for lie is not,) but considrations of policy and justice, and the good of the country, all conjoin to require him to remain at the helm to finish up the work which has been begun undet his Admin istration. The following is an extract from the letter of Mr. Arnold, referred to,which was addressed to and published iu the Evening I’ost: I think I am fully warranted in stating that up to this time there has been no considerable difference of opinion among the people on the Presidential question. It is a most significant tact that, notwithstanding tlie efforts made in this city and elsewhere in behalf of prominent and able tueu in military and civil life; not withstanding a thoroughly organized, able, ar dent and zealous opposition to President Lin coln bore, embodying great abilities and abun dant means; with the co-operatiou of some of the great leading newspapers of the Union, and with the aid oi some of the distinguished names of trusted national leaders attached to your petition; yet all this has produced no perceptible effect upon public opinion. The minds of the people are fixed upon the great contest for national existence, and are impa tient of quarrela and controversies among ourselves. Jbe opposition to the President in our owu party, talented, eloquent, zealous and active as it is, lias scarcely pioduced a ripple on the wave of public sentiment which is so strongly running iu lavor of Mr. Lin coln’s re-election. There is no organization among the friends of the President, they are doing nothing; but this action of tlie people is spontaneous, unprompted, earnest and sincere. State after state holds its convention, appoints itsdele gates,and, without a dissenting voice,instructs them to vote lor Mr. Lincoln. This popula rity of the President, this unanimity of the people, is confiued to no section, but East as well as West, middle state and border state, they all speak oue voice. Let us hate Lincoln for our camlidate. I)o I exaggerate ? Maine speaks for him on the Atlantic, an<J her voice is echoed by California from the Pacific, New Hampshire and Kansas,Connecticut and Min ndfeola, Wisconsin and West Virginia, and now comes the great state of Pennsylvania, seconding Maryland : one after another, all de clare (or the re-election of tlie President. Is it not wiser to recognize and accept (Ategreat fart than to struggle against ilt Tlie truth is, tlie masses of the people, and the soldiers every where, trust and love the President. They know his hands are clean and his heart is honest and pure. They know that the devil has no bribe big enough, no temptation of wealth, or power, which can se duce the integrity of Abraham Lincoln. Hence the people, the brave, honest, self-de uyiug people, the people who hate furnished the men, and who are ready to pay the taxes necessary to crush the reliellion, and who are determined to establish national unity based on liberty, they are more wisp, less factious, and more disinterested than the politicians.— Their instlnetiee sagacity aud good sense has already settled the Presidential question. It cannot lie unsettled whlioul a convulsion which will endanger the Union cause. A post ponement of the convention would not pre vent Mr. Lincoln’s renomination; it might possibly endanger his election. Acquiesence, uuion and harmouy will fol low the dune convention. Delay encourages faction, controversy and division. 1 say har mony will follow the June convention. I say this becauso I believe Gen. Fremont and his friends are l"yal to liberty and will not en danger its triumph by dividing the friends of freedom. I -try this because I believe the rad ical Germans who support Fremont, who have done so much in this contest to sustain free Institutions, cannot he induced by their enthusiasm for a man, to desert or endanger the triumph of their principles. The hour is critical. We approach the very crisis oi our fate as a nation. With union and harmouy our success is certain. The presidential election rapidly approach es. We cannot divert attention from it by tmnijw'uiiik mo u»itruuuu, cnuiioi Silt? y change our leader in the midst of the storm that is raging around us. The people have no time for the discussions which must precede and follow such a change. f repent, wc cannot safely or wisely change our leader in the raidsts of the great events which will not wait for conventions. Such is Hie instiuctive, uearly universal judgment of the people., then, the convention meet and ratify the choice which the people have already so clearly indicated. Fnij’ in I'ryeburg. Fryebcro, May 10, 1804. To the Editor of the /‘ref: A Fair for the benefit of the Maine Camp Hospital Association was held by the people of this town and vicinity, onthe eve of the 10th iust. The weather was propitious aud the Academy Hall was well filled at au early hour. The evening was occupted by social enjoyments, tableaux and music. Refresh ments, fortune-telling, and an artificial fish pond, served as fruitful sources of amusement as well as profit. The articles displayed for sale were well arranged and were very good in workmanship and variety, aud it is only to be regretted that they were not much more abundant. The receipts for the evening er. ceeded two hundred dollars: the net proceeds were one hundred and eighty one dollars.— The various entertainments were well con ducted, aud the occasion was one of rare en joyment to all present. The hearts of the people of this region are open to the needs of the soldiers, and while we shall continue to do all in our power to relieve their necessities, we shall be glad to know that the sister towns of our State, which are uot already contributing to this object, will “go aud do likew ise.” The cause is one v, nick must commeud itself to every humane and patriotic heart. The Chris tian and Sai. ry Commissions are calling loudly r help i this hour of need, and we, at home, ve surely no right to disregard their cries. The t hristian Commission espe cially, is in , sslng want at this time. XI. W. E. . SF" Since the breaking out of the rebell ion, not a single man in the naval servlco has been sentenced to death. Letter from the State Capital. Augusta, May 18,1804. To the Editor of the Press: Lieut. Col.Thomas H. Hubbard, of Hallow ell, has been commissioned Colonel of the doth regiment, to till the vacancy caused by the promotion of Colonel Fessenden to Brigadier Genera’. Both of these gentlemen are fine officers, an honor to the State, and ornaments to the service. Maine has reason to be proud of all Her troops in the Southwest as well as upon the Potomac. All eyes are now turned anxiously, but in confidence, to the operations of Gen. Grant In Virginia, and every < Hurt is being made to extend all possible care and comfort to our brave soldiers who have been wounded in the late battles there. On the reception of the first news of an engagement, Gov. Cony at once telegraphed to Senator Morrill and Hon. Horatio King, inquiring if it was necessary or desiiable for him to send on volunteer sur geons to aid in taking care of our wounded. He was informed iu reply that such physicians were not wanted at that time, but that he should be advised whenever they were neces sary. After a lapse of two or three days, having in tiie meantime sent on Surgeon llrickett, of the Post Hospital here, and hearing nothing of more surgeons being wanted, although wounded men were daily arriving from the battle-field by thousands, the Governor tele graphed the Surgeon General to see If any were needed, and If so how many. A reply was promptly sent, asking for five first-class surgeons for ten days’service. Drs. Hill, of Augusta, Boutelle, of Waterville, Garcelon, of Lewiston, Fitch, of Portland and Monroe, of Bellast, were called upon, all of whom at once complied and hurried forward to the scene of their labors, except l>r Monroe who was unavoidably detained by death iu his family. Our poor soldiers arc fortunate iu securing the services oi such men. Scores of other physicians from all parts of the State kindly tendered their services for the same duly, but owing to the pressing need of dis patching assistance at once, the most availa ble were made use of at first. Olliers will probably have an opportunity to serve iu like manner, more especially if the campaign should last some weeks, as now appears cer tain. Gn Monday the Governor himself started for Washington to do what service might be Id his power to our soldiers ia that city or vicinity. He will remain as long as his pres ence may be necessary for their comfort. The Treasurer is busily signing the Bonds for the State loan of two millions, authorized by the last Legislature. Proposals are to be received for these bonds until 5 o’clock Tues day afternoon. An Association styled the Williams Fra ternity, has been formed in this city for the purpose of establishing a library and readiog room and such other advantages as naturally come from Mercantile Library Associations, Literary Unions, Institutes, Ac. The sun, which has for 6ome time been a stranger in these parts, yesterday returned to us, delighting every animated being aud even bringing a smile of gladness upon the dumb face of old Dame Nature, who is ordinarily so impurturbable and takes everything as a mere matter of course.

The tluisliing and soldering are also done on this floor. On the third floor the casting is done, there being a mould for each of the pieces which constitute the article to be made. The dies required are very expensive, and as the styles are constantly changing many are rendered valueless after being used hut a short time. In the depository for dies aud moulds may be found a large number thrown aside, the aggregate cost of which originally was not less than $15,000. Tlie metal used comes in large bars, is passed through the roller and run iuto the moulds or dies. These pieces are turned, polished aud plated aud tlieu soldered together. Tiu ware is made iu this establishment, burnished and fluished to resemble the Britannia ware, aud is in many respects equal to it and can be af f >rded at a much lower price. We are not fully informed as to the extent of business carried on at this establishment, but itcaunot be lesa than $40,000 a year.— Twenty men are employed in the various de partments, who make goed wages and rauk among our most industrious and ingenious mechanics. The various articles manufactur ed at this establishment, which comprise al most everything made of Britannia, find a ready market iu this State aud Massachusetts and are sent to every part of this aud into oth er countries. Traders in this State who have been accustomed to purchase their Britannia and plated ware in Boston or New York, by calling on Mr. Dunham, may flud tiiat in qual ity, style, price and in every other particu lar, they can do as well iu Portland as in Bos ton or elsewhere.
