POHTZ.AXU AND VICIXITY. S. J. Court—April Term. DAVIS, J., PBKSIDDIO. Thursday.—Louisa H. Greenough vs. Hen ry Blackman. Action ol replevin to recover a quantity of boots and shoes, claimed to be the property of plaintiff. Submitted to the Justice presiding, without the intervention of a jury, with right of either party to except as to rulings at law. Judg ment for the plaintiff. In the case of Curtis vs. Hall, the vetdict was for the plaintiff for $35 50. Boyle vs. Duly. Action for amount due for services rendered in assisting in recruit ing. Judgment for defendant. The Court adjourned to June 1st. Municipal Court—May 10. Michael Woods was up for an aggravated assault upon his wife. The wife bore facie evidence of the brutality of her husband. Fined ten dollars and costs, for want of which he was committed to jail. Elias M. Eastman was up for all assauit on his wife. The trial elicited a series of aggra vations on the part of the wife, such as drink ing to excess, having in her possession the photograph ol a man whom she professes to love, Ac. Mr. Eastman and his wife,it seems, were living in the most unhappy manner, cul minating in the most outrageous language on the part of the wile and brutal assault on the part of the husband. He was fined five dol lars and cost. It is to be supposed that but a small proportion of the cases of a similar character come before the Municipal Court. Those that are ventilated show what depravity and mis ery exist in our comparatively moral and quiet city. Evans A Putnam for complainant. H. P. Deane for defence. Levke Last Evening.—The City Hall was densely filled last evening, at the Univer salist Ladies’ Levee. The occasion proved to be an eminent success. The tables were splendidly set out, and the articles on sale in the Senate Chamber, displayed upon the walls, gave to that room a most attractive appear ance. Some very elegant and expensive pieces were distributed. Peppenburg's Band has soldom done belter. The music was well selected and artistically executed. To those who were disappointed in -finding do opportunity to dance, we are authorized to aay “a good time is coming,” for the fair is to be kept up this afternoon at 3 o'clock, and again in the evening at 7 o’clock, when new and varied attractions are to be provided, and when those who desire to dance will find eve ry desired accommodation. We have never attended a more sensible fair—one freer from the ordinary catch-penny and pick-pocket machinery usnal on such occasions. To-night, no doubt, the crowd will be even greater than last evening. The 10-40 Loan.—We would call the at tention of those who are seeking a safe invest ment for money, to the advertisement of the 10-40 loan in another column. Both princi pal and interest of this loan are payable in < gold, and it is exempt from municipal and State taxes. We have uo doubt that when the war Is over, all United States securities will command a premium—as they always have done in time ol peace—and even now they produce a larger revenue than most first class investments, beside having for security the whole wealth of the nation. gy We are indebted to Hon. Selli Scam mon for some of the early products of the labors of the boys at the Reform School. Mr. Scammon, the Superintendent of that institu tion, is, as we learn, managing every depart ment with much ability and discretion, and if his own 4able is furnished with such aspara gus as was presented us, with ofticr things to correspond, we would not object to a short sentence to that institution—an hour at din ner time for iustance. SySprague & Blanchard’s Minstrels will give a grand complimentary benefit to Harry Blanchard, this evening. Let there be a rash on this occasion, and the hall resound with fun and laughter from floor to rafters. Every Saturday afternoon a performance for chil dren, who are admitted for ten cents each— cheap enough in all conscience, considering the entertainment furnished. Give Harry a rouser this evening. syA fisherman, while on his course to his usual landing place at Cape Elizabeth, when in the neighborhood of Cape Elizabeth Light, was fired at several limes by a man with a rifle. A .ball passed through his sails and came quite near him. We are not informed how near a boat may go to this Light without being liable to be fired at. 5y“We learn that the quotas (of tills Dis trict under all the calls of the 1’resideut, ara nearly full, lacking, perhaps 250 of the requis ite number. We are indebted largely to the indomitable perseverence and wise manage ment of Mayor McLellan for the exemption of this city from the liability to a draft, all calls having been promptly and fully met. New Clothio Stoke.—Messrs. F.B. Top pan & Co., 124 Middle street, have opened a store for the sale of fashionable ready-made clothing and furnishing goods. They have a large aud well selected stock of goods, to which they will make constant additions, aud will sell at low prices. $y"One of the strongest objections urged by the opposers of the horse railroad, was the liability to collision with carriages iu the street. The cars have been running tour or five months and we have not beard of any such collision. WA young woman by the name of Mary Sears, was committed to the watch-house last night, charged with stealing about $25 iu money, a cape, box and some other articles, from a woman in Cape Elizabeth, whose hus band is in the army. Mary's antecedents are against her and a portion of the property was found in her possession. Wit Is said there has been some talk and some figures made in reference to the erection of an Opera Douse. Such a building in such a locality as would be desirable,would cost from $00,000 to $75,000. Proposals lor rations aud fuel for Light House Tenders in the First Light House Dis trict, will be received by Hon. I. Washburn, Jr., Superintendent of Lights, until the 15th day of June. See advertisement. WWe learn that arrangements are being made to raise the iron from the wreck of the Bohemian. A large proportion of it is owned in Bath. Union League.—Portland Council, No. 4, will hold its regular meeting this (Friday) evening, at the usual time and place. B^“Henry Bailey «S Co., will sell a small invoice of Bohemian goods, at No. 3, Galt's Block, at 10 o’clock to-day. ESf-Land for sale near Wood’a Corner, Wwtbrook, See advertisement. BY TELEGRAPH TO TIB Portland Daily Press. ——-.—— FROM GEN. HITLER'S COMMAND. GEN. BEAUREGARD REINFORCED* Federal Troops Falling Hark to Xe ir En tren eh ni en ts. CAPTURE OF GEN. IHCKMAN. Bermuda Hundreds, May 18,1 via Fortress Monroe 19th. ( All is quiet with our army to-day. The ob ject of the demonstration on Fort Darling was merely to draw otf and entertain as many of Gen. Lee’s troops as possible, and also to at tract the attention of all the rebel forces in and about Richmond to enable Gen. Kautz to destroy the communications south of Rich mond. On Monday morning last the rebels came out ot their entrenchments and earthworks in front of Fort Darling at daylight, having been heavily reinforced by Lougstreet’s corps, and made three advances, all of which were promptly and energetically repulsed by our men. The enemy lost in these charges from 1000 to 1500 men, while our loss was very slight. Gen. Butler having learned that Beauregard was heavily reinforced by Long street’s corps, and also ascertained by the rebel papers and a courier that the bridge over the Appomattax river and several miles of the Danville railroad were destroyed, and that the dams, locks and embankments of the canal leading into Richmond were also de stroyed, decided to fall back from before Fort Darling, and gave orders accordingly, and by Monday evening our army had safely arrived behind our new entrenchments, having fftlred in perfect order, except that Gen. Hickman’s brigade was badly disorganized, and Gen. Hickman captured. This brigade formed the extreme wing opposite the enemy, and the rebels attacked this point with great despera iiwu, lumm iug iucui ubck Dtany iwo miles with overwhelming numbers, capturing a large number and killing and wounding many of them. Three of our seige guns fell into the hands of the rebels, the horses being killed. The guns being spiked. At present it is im possible to estimate our loss. Stragglers are constantly coming in. We have lost more prisoners than the rebels, but their loss iu killed and wounded doubly exceeds ours, as our men were proteged by entrencements. Several of Longstreet’s men were captured, who stated that his whole force was co-oper ating with Beauregard. OFFICIAL NEWS DISPATCH. SUCCESSFUL OPERATIONS OF GEN. EHERMAN. Capture of Rome. GENS. HOOKER AND HOWARD OPEN ING ON JOHNSTON. Washington, May 10—10.15 P. M. To Major (Itn. IHj :—No official reports of military operations to-day have been re ceived by this Department, Irom Gen.

Latest from Armif of the Potomac. Washington, May 19. A dispatch from the headquarters ot the Army of the Potomac, dated at 0 o'clock last evening, says an attack on the enemy's right was to have been made at an early hour this morning, but ou examining the gronnd in that vicinity, it was found to be unfavorable for the handling of the army. The plan was changed and at 5 o’clock this morning, Han cock, supported by the 0th corps on his right, advanced against the enemy’s works. The rifle pita in front were those which had been abandoned by us, but they were now tilled with rebel sharpshooters, who were soon dis lodged and driven back through a second line. Our troops were here exposed to a gall ing fire of shelf and canister, and were com pelled to fall back. Our loss in this move ment was about 800. Gen. Burnside's corps were partly engaged, and lost about one fourth of the above num l»er. The Corcorac Legion acted like vete rans and kept their ground for one hour under a very hot fire.
