Grant’s Movements Tbe rebel papers assert that “owing to tbe singular configuration of tbe soil” tbe effect of “Lee’s victorious advance” was to drive Grant constantly towards Richmond.” The Chicago Tribune facetiously remarks that auch statements of tbe rebel journals remind’ us of tbo account one “Phoenix” gives of bis contest, who said:—“I held my antagonist to tbe ground by firmly inserting my nose be tween his teeth, and keeping it there for that express purpose." At present advices it seems that “Lee's victorious advance” has pushed Grant and his forces almost to the doors of the Capitol, where he is knocking for admit ■ion, wnicu ne win prouauiy ouiain ueiore many days shall have passed. It really seems to us that It would have been better policy for Lee to have driven Grant in some other di rection, but then those ‘'flanking movements” greatly interfered with such a policy, and very much disturbed Lee’s arrangements. To labor many nights and days on entrenchments and fortifications, and then see his antagonist avoid them and take another course, not dreampt of, is absolutely discouraging to any General. But as Mr. Longhead said, “every thing is uncertain,” and nothing is more so than the fortunes of war. Tfie copperhead journals are continually reiterating that Graut has uow adopted Mc GTkfit jlaapjcssiu tfvgr a route that Little Mac declared was not practicable, aud reached a point in twenty days which took McClellan nearly three months .to reach. That is one important fact, and another ia, that Grant has not suffered to much loss in men and material as McClellan did. Besides all this, Grant leads a victorious army to the very gates of Richmond, and not one discour aged wilh long delays and weakened by dig ging in swamps and sleepiug in mud-holes. But better afiil, Grant has whipped Lee In several engagements, out-geueraled him in many instances, and demoralized his army to such a degree that Lee’s power of resistance grows lest and less as Grant marches on. The prestige of victory la on our tide, and our army is full of hope and good spirits. And what lias Grant's army done betide all this ? During all this time, has he not covered Wash ington ? Suppose he had taken the Peninsula route and followed in the track of McClellan, •trelching out his line some Unity milee across swamps and morasses, and then retreating “on compulsion,” what would have been gained ? Lee might, in the meantime, have sent a por tion of his army in the direction of Washing ton, but he dared not attempt such a move ment when Grant could have followed, and driven him upon ground where his whole army might have been obliged to surrender. Grant’s cainpalgu resembles McClellan’s only in a sin ele point, aud that is, be now has his base of supplies at or near the White House. Why all this harping on the Peninsula route? We should think that the coppei heads would be come ausoiuieiy sick or playing to long on a tingle airing, for it give* out no inspiring music, aud the people are heartily tired ol •uch refrains. The more they invest in such •lock the poorer they will become. And Lit tle Mac has abundant reason to exclaim, “O, •a"e me from my friends!” lie is now con •tanlly receiving wounds in the home of bis friends, and for his reputation’s sake he oughl to seek out some axpedieut to silence them. Nature never intended him to llgure as a great man on the world's stage, aud what nature has not done copperhead politicians cannot aupply. They may rest assured of that fact, aud cease from such arduous up-hill labors It is too much like the work of Sisyphus 8brewd politicians may set a popular current in motion, and place their lavorite upon it, who will float along apparently triumphant for a while, but, unless he has merit of hit own, and possesses qualities essential to great ness, his career will be short, and that cur reut will become exceedingly slow and slug gish. It takes a strong wind to move a vessel that Is badly constructed for sailiug, and the friends of McClellan have already blown their heaviest blasts. There is a lull now, and we , very much question whether politicians, or j eveu the Chicago Convention itself, will be I able to furnish wiud enough to All Mac’s sail and give him once more anything like a fair impetus. In the iast half of this nineteenth century the intelligence of the masses in the free States is very troublesome to trading politic ians. The people are too shrewd, and their eyes and ears are opened too wide to be long deceived by any false show of greatness • They have learned how to measure men them- ! •elves, and will do it correctly when all the facts in the case are pateut. Gen. McClellan has been fairly tried aud found wanting. No power short of that which is absolutely crea titie can make him a great man. He will All the space for which Nature designed him, and : blow him up as politician! may, he must sink ! to his appropriate level, and there he must re main in spite of all attempts to elevate him above it. We And no fault with the man when, like a tub, he sUnds on hia own bot tom, hut the fault lies iu those who would re- 1 move him from this natural basis aud elevate him to a place where he does not belong. Un der such circ; instances he may well adopt the language of one of Shakespeare’s characters: “lir, farewell!

Wabhinoton, June 4, 1804. To the Editor qf the Pre$§ . The attempt made on Tuesday last, to re- j peal the “Fishing Bounties," and the very an imated discussion elicited by It, seem worthy 1 of a note. Though these bounties, In accor dance with the example of the great maritime powers, Englaud and France, and upon grounds not of private or local interest, but of national utility, were established by the Fathers of the Kepublic, and have been sanc tioned by our great statesmen; though they arc now in no proper sense a gratuity, but be ing uearly equal iu amount to the duty paid by our Ushermeu upon the salt used iu curing the flsh, simply serve to give them anevm chance iu business with the Ushermen of the Provinces, which last, paying no duty on salt, and having the privilege uuder the lteciproc ity Treaty, of sending their flsh into the Stales ftee of impost, would otherwise have a material advantage over our own fishermen— notwithstanding all this, the Bounties have of late years been frequently and violently at tacked. it The movement seems to have originated with the representatives of the slave states, whose iuteuse hatred of New England need not be told. Since, moreover, New England, 1 though thoroughly respected aud eveu admir ed, is not very popular outside hei own bor ders, some politicians of the Middle and Western States may have thought a little cheap local popularity might be acquired by assailing an interest supposed to pertain pe culiarly to our American Switzerland. From these or some other causes, the repeal ol the Bounties baa been a favorite bobby with some gentlemen, and one emphatically of loeg standing, siuce they have never been able to make it go. Tins time, However, iuo repeal was attempt ed wilb strong hopes and a pretty fair pros pect of success; so lar, indeed, that these most iuterested in preserving the present statutes were very doubtful of their ability to do so. Senator Morrill having given some atteutiou to the subject, was prepared to take a leading part in preventing the injustice at tempted, and to repel, as he did very satis factorily, lha aspersions cast by some Senators upon New England. Senator Fessenden also made a short speech on the subject, or rather* a statement of the case, very admirable for its clearness and force. To the exertions of ftir own Senators It Is very largely due that the motion to repeal the Bounties received only eleven out of thirty-five votes. Slowly and with an immense amount of quiet, hard work and patient discussion, the Tax bill approaches its completed state as s law. Your readers are doubtless made awaie through the telegraph of the more important features of the bill as fast as they are consid ered settled. The forthcoming law will of course bear heavily, but will, I am confident, be tolerated and even welcomed by the peo ple. For us the choice is no longer between light and heavy taxation, but between great taxes and financial ruin, utter and irreparable. We mu9t take up the burden and carry it with a stout shoulder and a stouter heart. Nor will the country forget to honor with its gratitude those statesmen who hare labor ed night and day with signal ability at the herculean task of preparing this most ungra cious but most necessnry measure. And it is ; quite safe and only just to say that no mem ber of the Ways and Means Committee of the House, or of the Finance Committee of the i Senate has been more distinguished for skill aud ability or has deserved belter of his coun try in connection with this measure than the chairman of the latter, Hon. W. P. Fessenden. The leading position now and for some time past occupied by him in the Senate is not a* ail accidental. So well has he, during these years of trouble and trial proved himself to ‘ he the right man in the right place, that were slightest doubt,'be immediately accorded to him by the general if not unanimous sense of the august council of which he is a member. With long legislative experience, ability above I question, integrity above suspicion, with cour age to do whatever needs to be done however thankless the task, severe and unrelenting in his hostility to every fraud or extravagance however concealed or disguised, he has man aged the great Interests committed to his care in such a manner as will insure to him a place in our future auuals among our most pure and able statesmen. The report of the committee on the conduct of the war, just published, respecting the con dition of returned Union prisoners, will be perused with an interest no lest paiuful than intense. Accompanying the report are eight cuts intended to give some idea of the appear, ance of as many Union soldiers soon after their release from the dungeons of Richmond They convey to the mind far better than any words can do the idea of the terrible cruelty with which those brave but most unfortunate men along with thousands more hare been treated. Some expired soon after their re lease, and seme are gradually returning to health and strength. I have seen several of the photographs from which the engravings w*-re made. The latter do not exaggerate, but rather fall short ol presenting the terrible aspect of the former. The photograph of John L. Rose iu particular, who died May 4;h irorn efleets of treatment while iuthe enemy’s hands is far more ghastly than the picture ac companying the report, if, with those cuts before us, we can command ourselves sufll cienuy io reau me Hypocritical platitude*, tbe smooth infernal caut of Jeff Davi* respecting the comparative treatment of Union and reb el prisoners—lie* as diabolical as if they had been put forth from l’andeinonimn direct and not through the branch office at Richmond, we shall perhaps realize more vividly than we have been accustomed to do the true spirit of this rebellion. The National Union Convention about to assemble at Baltimore ia becoming a matter of absorbing interest. I hear no other candi date than Mr. Lincoln spokea of as having any probable chance of succesa. A proposition to adjourn to attend the Convention made in the Senate by Mr. Lane, ol Kansas, Yesterday morning, was lairly laughed down.—Congress will keep about its owu business. T. S. P. The Dano-German War The conference on the Danish question again met on the 17th May, and continued in session from one o,clock till four, P. M-, all the members being present. The daily news says: “After another sitting of more than three hours, the conference can hardly be said to have advauced a single step toward effecting tbe object for which it was assembled, the prospect of Us settling upon any terms of peace, being apparently as dis tant as ever. The divergence of opinion not only between the belligerents, but between Austria and Prussia, aud the neutral powers, i* so wide, that as yet they have not been able even to agree on any common basin of discussiou.” The German Powers repudiate altogether their 20 engagements toward Denmark assert ing that the war ha* liberated them from all further obligation* relating to the Denmark State, even thn»e solemnly contracted in con cert with other powers, aud avowedly for Eu ropean object*. On the otber band, Danish Plenipotentiaries necessarily insi.-t on the pro visions of the London treaty as binding on all Its dignitaries. In this view of the question, all the neutral powers will support them. Unless Austria and Prussia modify their point of view in harmony with the judgment of the mediating powers, tbe deliberations of the conference can have no pleasant result, be cause it will operate as a bar to any scheme of comprcmi*Uuless the Loudon treaty ia entirely ignored, the conference must take that as a starting point. The Morning Post says .-—“The time must soon come when Prussia and Austria muat throw off the mask.” These European complication* are difficult to uuravel, and »tatesmen and politician* have got a great work before them to prevent a European war, 4 BS.’Sr I . ■ ' . .nil » _ Letter from the State Capital.

It is Camp Fry, Instead of Camp Keyes, which has been turned over for their use to the medical department, and the Vet eran Reserve Corps has been transferred to Camp Keyes. Hon. Bion Bradbury is in town. A conspiracy was discovered among the deserters confined in the jail here, night be fore last, to overpower the guard and make their escape. It was promptly quelled. Yours truly, Ukliob. Augusta, Junk 0,1864. To the Editor of th* Treat: The following appointments have been made to-day, viz:— NINTH KE01MENT 1NFA.NTBT. Zina II. Kobinson of Bath, Colonel, George F.

K, 20th regiment, Surgeon Jo siah Carr, 36th regiment. Lieutenant S. C. Stout, 80th regiment. These last four are dismissed by direction of the President for passing and mustering in to service one recruit for each regiment “who was manifestly unfit for military dnty.” Pro. bsbly when the whole matter is ventilated projierly these officers will not be allowed to leave the service. Lieut. 8. C. Stout is a mis print for Sumner N. Strout of company E, who was killed on the 0th of April last, at the battle of Pleasant Hill, La., doing his duty nobly. He has been discharged from all earthly service by a higher power than the War Department. The Governor is in receipt of a letter from the Secretary of the Navy in which he says the United States Steamer “Agawam” has been temporarily ordered to Portland to re cruit men. There is a prominent Receiving Ship at Kitlery where recruits can be mus tered in and receive their bounties. Com manding ollicers of Rendezvous aud Receiv ing Ships will be directed to adopt the blank form suggested by the Adjutant General of the State. For the information of persons who have lost friends in Genera! Butler's command and who desire to recover their remains, it may be well to stale that by General Orders and for Sanitary reasons, no bodies will be disin terred in that department until the first of October. It it uoderstood that the same rule is in operation in General Grant’s army. Tours truly, Hklios. Wounded Soldiers at Augusta. Acgcsta, June 4, 1864.

Mr. Itice, who has lately ar rived from England, was then called upon to address the school, which he did in a most ef fectual and Instructive manner, dwelling upon the importance of Sabbath schools and the pleasures connected therewith. He closed his ipeech by exhorting the scholars to attend these delightful privileges.

About fifty of the active and honorary members of the com pany were present, with invited guests, em- ! bracing members of the press and others. This company was the first to respond to the call of the Governor when the National Capi tol was in eminent peril, and made its wav to Washington through Baltimore, while the fresh blood of our brave soldiers was upon the paving stones of that city. Several mein- 1 bers of the company are in the different regi ments now in servicm and, therefore, their ranks on this occasion^f their annuai festival were thinner than usual. The dinner was one of the best to which we ever sat down. The long table was literally loaded with all the aubstantials of the market and delicacies of the season, and ail, for the occasion, became active members and partook with appetitrs sharpened by the bracing air of the locality and the lateness of the hour at which the din- I ner was served up. The only drawback to the pleasure of the occasion was the fact that Mr. Miller, the landlord ot the White Housi > and a member of the company, was confined to his bed in consequence of a serious acci dent received at the establishment of Mr. Jones while arranging lor this occasion, breaking three of his ribs. After ample jus tice had been done to the edibles, the com pany was called to order by Lieut. Boothbay, who, since the death of Lieut. Col. Withaui, is the officer iu command. lie made a few appropriate remarks, and called upon other geullemen for speeches, sentiments or toasts. Dr. Colby responded for the press, and senti ments were offered by Lieuts. Todd and Con- , uui, »uu nit-Bsrs. suaw, iveeves, ueureney, Emery, and others, which were received with rounds of applause. The company then went out into the field for target practice, with the following result: The best average shot was made by Lewis Perry, 10 3-4,0 1-4 and 8, being and average of 8 1-3 inches from the centre. The first prize of a sett of silver spoons was ^warded Mr. Perry. The next best shot was by Henry j Green 9 1-4,103 4,10, being an average of ' 10 inches from the centre, to whom the second 1 prize of a sett of silver lorks was awarded. The best single shot was made by Charles A. Donnell, 2 inches from the centre. The trip to the White House was a very pleasant one, the day delightful, and the place one of the most beautiful in the State. Every thing was doue by those in charge of the ! White House to render the occasion a pleasant one, and all seemed more than pjeased. Maine State Agenct. Mr P. Morrell ot this city, has recently returned from Freder icksburg, where he has been in search of a brother who was killed in battle near Spott sylvania Court House. He did not find the remains, but found one wounded brother at Fredericksburg and had him conveyed to Washington. He has a third brother wound ed, but could not find him at any of the hos ! pitals. Mr. Morrell takes this occasion to speak highly in favor of the Maine State Agency, and thinks the people at home do not fully appreciate the labors of this Agency.— The members are constantly at work, night and day, and their labors are very arduous.— i He speaks highly of Mr. Leonard Watson who ; is at Washington looking after the wants of 1 the soldiers, aiding their friends in searching them out, aud doiog oilier necessary duties* i The supplies sent from this State pass through Mr. Watson’s hands to the front, where they i are received by Mr. C. C. Hayes and bis as- ; distant*, Mrs. Sampson and Mrs. Maybew.— ; The labors of these persons for the benefit of our soldiers cannot be over estimated. We I are glad to bear so good an account of those 1 who minister to the wants of the sick and wounded soldiers, and especially of the Maine Agency, an organization which is not so well much talked about. Any'“contributions to this Agency will be faithfully appropriated. Religious and Ecclesiastical Items. Rev. J. A. Ross, ou taking lea**e of the i Congregationalist church and society at New ! Gloucester, received a parting gift of about 1 $80. The June session of the Farmiugton Quar terly Meeting, (Freewill Baptist,) will be held at Phillips, ouWednesdsy, 8th lust. The pastor of the Main St. Baptist Church, Bruuswick, Rev. T. J. B. House, baptised 20 young converts on Sabbath before last. The scene was witnessed by about 2500 persons. The annual meeting of the “Somerset Con ference of Congregational Churches” for the year 1884, will be held at the Congregational Church in Norridgewock, on Tuesday aud Wednesday, 7th and 8th inst. The General Conference of the M. E. Church, at its late session in Puiladeipbia, voted ,to so change the Discipline that the preacher may stay three years Instead of two oa the same appointment. Wkstwabii, Ho! It is said that the emi gration to the far West is unprecedented. A newspaper published in Troy, Denipban Co., Kansas, describes the roads as “blockaded with teams,” and estimates the number of wagons which passed through that place iu one week as seven hundred—a hundred a day The emigrant wagons, it Is said, averaged at least three men to each. Thus the vast re gion west of the Mississippi is rapidly Ailing up with enterprising laborers. West Point Cadets. Competition Examination of candidates for scholarships at the Military Academy at West Point is now attracting much attention. Members of Congress aro acting of their own motion in the right direction. This is not en tirely a new thing. An instance of it In Mas Massachusetts has been long on record. When lion. Artemas Hale of Bridgewater was a member of the House of Representa tives, he ha<l an appointment in his gift he wrote to Nicholas Tillinghast, principal of the Slate Normal School at Bridgewater, re questing him to recommend the young man in that institution, in his Judgment best quali fied for the place. Mr. T. recommended George S. Andrews. The candidate was ad mitted, proved a diligent stud-nt, and there he graduated, stood first in the Order of Merit. Sometime after he went into civil em ployment; but when the War commenced, took a commission in the Volunteer Army; and Is doing good service up to this time. The Tokonto Ulouk, one of tne most able journals in British North America, and friend ly to us, holds the following language in speak ing of the doings of the late Cleveland Con vention: But it is sufficiently manifest that the Amer ican people will not elect Geucral Fremont to the Presidency this year. The success of another is a foregone conclusion, and there is probably no man in the Union who could come near defeating Mr. Lincoln. It is prob ably a doubtful question whether a man of General Fremont’s high reputation and un questioned public position, will bo willing to have bis name used iu a contest that must be both hopeless and useless. We shall not be surprised to learn, therefore, that he de clines the Cleveland nomination. If he does accept it, however, we shall look for his n lirement long before the day of election. The Cori-EHUEAi) Hope. — The N. V. World, in referring to the Cleveland Conven tion, says: How important this movement is to be can not at once be determined. It shows a more formidable front than the demonstration at Buffalo in 1848, which defeated Cass and elec- 1 ted Taylor. The hope of the Copperheads is that the Cleveland movement may bring fish to their net, and the Radicals, aa they style themselves are very stupid not to see it, or, seeing it, aro very perverse in contributing to Copperhead advantage. The people will soon see through this flimsy affair, and take care that it is pow erless for mischief.—[Buffalo Express. a_-!-iSrg-E.'_■„ , ■. ■ original and selected. -Yew Adrertitemtmtt To-liny.

The Eabt Maine Contebence of the Metho dist Episcopal church commences its seven teenth annual session in Bucksport this week on Wednesday. Bishop Ames is to preside. The Block Shop of Mr. L. D.

Dim no the recent furlough of the Second Iowa Cavalry, two hundred marriages took place in the regiment, there being twenty-Liue marriages in one company alone. An entkbpbisinu but ignorant South Ameri can has sent to an Albany locomotive shop for one hundred “cow catchers.” He expects to use them in taking wild cattle on the plains of Paraguay, in place of the lasso. The Richmond papers state that the confeder- j acy has released some of the criminals from the prisons in that city, and sent them into the army. The greatest criminals in Richmond, though, have never been inside the prisons of that city. Lieut. Henry 0. Ripley, formerly compositor in the office of the Free Press, Rockland, died in the Hospital at Washington, on Tuesday of last week, of wounds received in one of the I late battles. His coolness and bravery in the hour of danger, are highly complimented by iue press. The soldiers of the colored regiment now sta tioned at Fort Parapet, La., have commenced the publication of a little newspaper called the “Black Warrior.’’ Among the editorials (s one on the “Fort Pillow Affair.’* “They hare flung down the gauntlet,” exclaims the “Black War rior,” we accept it. A Fredericksbirg corrcspondenAf the Hal- ' lowell Gazette, says: “Rev. Mr.CultlerofSkow hegan, and Rev. Mr. Beard, of Bath, are here, working with a will; and I can assnre their friends and people that, much as they appre ciate their labors at home, at the present time, here is the place for working ministers as well as all other professions. The Xewbi bvport Herald says: “The fisher men are on a strike. Several vessels are now ready for the Labrador, and their men were en gaged; but when it come to signing the ship ping papers, they demanded fifty dollar* a month, when theowners had been talking of forty. The owners proposed forty-five, which was finally accepted. Mr. Calvin Robinson of Calais, while at work in a sash and blind factory, at that place last week, got caught in one of the belts of the machinery, and had one of his arms so shock ingly mangled, that it was found necessary to , amputate it at the shoulder. He had, sometime before several of his fingers cut off by a cir cular saw. It is said that the cathedral in Mexico, is the largest building in America, it being five hun dred feet long, four hundred feet wide and seat ing thirty-thousand persons. One picture hang ing on its walls is so ornamented with pearls that it is said to be worth 814,000,000, and the most extravagant magnificence is displayed throughout the whole establishment. Blackwood’s Magazine fur May has been re ceived ; published by Leonard Scott & Co., N. Y.

It is an excellent number and the articles interesting. Three Childses, htta h, aged 9, daughter of Col. Thurston Libby, Louisa, aged 9, daugh ter of Col. Filtebrown, and Mary, aged 19, daughter of Rev. Mr. Tufts, all of Auburn, were drowned last Saturday in the Androscog *>"* K*' .♦!*» esnsiiine of a boat in which they were sailing, accompanied • by Col. Libby. He saved his youngest child by swimming to the shore with her, while the others were clinging to the boat. The others could also have been saved if they had not got frightened and let go their hold upon the boat. Assistance was rendered as soon as possible, but they sank before it reached them. We con dense these facts from the Lewiston Journal. As iMroRTAHT replevin suit (executors of the late David Pingree vs. John Qoddard) was late ly tries! in St. John, N. U., in which the Colonel was allowed to plead his own case. Goddard and Pingree have carried on the lumbering bus iness together for several years, Goddard atten ding to the collection of stumpage, marketing of lumber, Ac., and paying over to Pingree his share of the proceeds. About the time that Coluncl Goddard began to raise his celebrated cavalry regiment, there was a large amount of lumber in St. John unsolJ, upon which there was due Pingree quite a sum of money. The logs were sold, by order of Pingree’s agent, at ruinous price*, to raise the sum due Pingree. The Colonel underetood himself, and had a writ of replevin served upon the logs. Goddard gained his case. -Mr. Sweat of Maine was the only dem ocratic member who voted against Mr. Hol man's tuoliou to reject the Senate resolution to ameud the Constitution so as to abolish and prohibit slavery. The above paragraph has been going the rounds of the papers. It originated from the special Washington correspondent of the Bos tou Daily Advertiser. We doubted the truth of it when we first saw it, for we did not be lieve that Mr. Sweat had independence enough to break loose from the copperhead ties that bind him to his party. It seems that we were correct in our doubts. The yeas aod nays as published in the Washington Globe show that Mr. Sweat voted in furor of Mr. Holman ■ motion to reject the resolution. Let Mr. Sweat have all the credit he is en titled to for this vote against proclaiming “Liberty throughout the land.” Cotton in California.—The cultivation of cotton In this State has been much stimu lated by the high price of the article. Many experiments have been tried In various sec tions, and have been successful. There are Immense tracts of suitable soil for cotton in the valleys of the great rivers of the State.— The San Francisco Hulletln says, “there is no reason why the production of cotton should not increase as rapidly as that of wool, which iu 1855 was 300,000 pounds, and in 1803, 7.000,000 pounds. Five years may bring ship loads of California cotton to the New York market.” Cotton can also be grown in Utah, Arizona aud New Mexico aawwell as in Cali fornia. The lime is coming when cotton will be extensively cultivated wherever civilized nations govern within the tropical latitudes. Population is increasing in the world, and so will the growing of this important plant. Very Sensible. The New York World discourses as follows. We like its discourse on Diet better thin on Politics. “While we do not agree with this advice of abstinence from animal food, It wonld yet be well for poor people to understand that the large quantities of meat necessary lor the human economy (luring the winter season are not needed during the summer time. There are many cheap vegetables, that will give as much uutriineut as meat and are more health ful during the summer seasou. We believe that poor families could cut down their allow ance of meat one half, not only without dam age, but with positive beueflt to the health. If the people of the North could only determine to reduce their consumption of .neat one third or one half, there would no longer be any complaint of a scarcity of beef, or of the spec ulations of drovers. We should soon have meat as cheap as ever, reckoning by a gold standard.'. Call Accepted.—Rev. James T. Hawes of South Uostou has accepted the call ex tended to him by the Park Street Church (Unitarian) of this city, to become their pas tor. His installation will take place in about two weeks.
