IoNATIU* fSAUOKNT, Euornb Halk, LINCOLN AND It will be seen by reference to our *»legrapbi l. dispatches that the Baltimore Convention have, with a unanimity unknown in the hit vory oi pouucai conventions, nominated Abraham Lincoln, of Illinois, for President, and Andrew Johnson, of Tennessee, for Vica President. It is with the most unalloyed pleasure we place their names at the head of our columns this morning, pledging what in fluence we are capable of exerting to their support. Having been unanimously nominat ed by one of the largest and most intelligent delegate conventions ever assembled in this country, we can confidently predict their elec tion by a majority such as no nominee* for these offices have ever received. It only re mains for the fiiends of the Union and uni versal freedom to rally to the standard of Llocoin and Johnson, and they can roll up such a majority as will send dismay into reb eldom and cause rebel sympathize!* to call on the mountains to cover them. The Baltimore Convention. This congregation of the loyal people from •li parts of our country, except those portions under the iron heel of Jeff Davis' military despotism, took place last Tuesday. Never before in the history of the United States has a political convention been held where the responsibilities resting upon it have been so momentous as upou this occasion. We have purposely abstained from any speculations up on what would be the filial result, or upon the modes by which that result might be obtained. Such speculations would be fruitless, and could result in no good to the cause which we all have so much at heart. We have never doubl ed, for one moment, that the nominations made at this Convention would be ratified by the loyal people of the couulry, whatever cop perheads might say, or discontented and fault finding politicians might do. We have al ways believed that the members of this Convention would fairly represent the loyal sentiments of the couutry, and reflect the b<*est opinions and feelings of the great Union party which is sustaining our Government in its present great struggle lor the Hie of the nation and the perpetuity of our free Institutions, and which must light the battle of Freedom at the ballot box next November. This battle will be fougbt bravely by the great Union party, and our Government encouraged, strength ened and sustained. We shall meet the foes of Freedom and conquer them. The nomi nees of this Convention will be elected by an overwhelming majority. The stars and stripes will float in the pure breezes of Heaven over •very ineb of our wido domain. The loyal people have sworn it, and that oath will be most religiously kept. It is the voice of a free people, and it must be heard aud felt. The copperhead element In the tret States will shrink back and bide Us diminished bead in shame before it, aud the slave aristocaacy of the South must yield to its power. The dem ocratic element of all Europe will respond to it In tones of thunder, and traitors and despots the world over will fear and tremble. No power on earth can prevent such a con •ummatjon. We inten* “ t > fight on that line,” with Liberty and Union emblazoned upon our standard. We have had no doubts in relation to the roan who would be nominated as a candidate for the Presidency, aud we believe our readers bave a’so been free from any such doulbs. The masses of the people had willed that along. They believe Abraham Lincoln is au honest man. This impression has sunk deep into their hearts, and all the politicians, cliques and jugglers iu Christendom cannot wipe it out. It is there, and the longer it remains the brighter it grows. The current in his favor is •trong aud irresistible. He is the man for the times. Tho confidence of the people in hjs Integrity is bis great strength, and iu that strength the rebellion must aud will be crushed out, and the Old Flag of our Union wavu In triumph over a free and happy aud prosper ous people. If Abraham Lincoln lives he will be President of these United States one more term, and tbeu be can retire into private life with his country’s blessing upon him. God save this great Commonwealth. Fjiemont's LETTEm-We publish in anoth er column the moat important part of Mr. Fremout’s letter accepting the Cleveland nomination, (if any importance can he at tached to any of it,) for the purpose of show ing why such papers as the New York World are so loud in their praise of Fremont and the Cleveland movement. The most ardent ft lends and supporun *f Mr. F. canuot fail to see the Inconsistency and absurdity of his position. ft".:. jp«'C ' The AigiiB and Fremont A change has evidently come over the spirit of our neighbor'* dream. II* i» now laboring with “Fremont on the brain”—a sort of lever whose exacerbations just at tills mo ment, seem to have upset his philosophy, and turned him away from the idolsjio has been accustomed to worship. It is true that “mis ery makes strange bedfellows,” aud political troubles, most of all, often drive certain poli ticians to snuggle under tbe same quilt, how ever much it may be patched or diversified witli colors. “Little Mac” has been the single string over which his lingers have swept for several months past, aud such music has been produc ed as he hoped would suit tbe million, but alas'. that string seems to have been broken, or, at least, it gives out uncertain sounds, aud those refrains which were wont to excite copperhead democracy, and tickle the ears of the groundlings, hsve lost their charms and been abandoned. It is passing strange that a first love can be so easily shaken off, but we live in a world of changes and we have made up our mind not to be surprised at anything that may turn up. The current of this Fre mont movement is “onward," is it? “It has a strong basis aud patristic iuceotives.” I)o you really think so, Mr. Argus ? Be cautious how you throw yourself headlong upon this current. Don't commit yourself in a hurry to tin'll political Haters. Be certain that they are sufficiently stirred before you make a plunge. Don't mistake a slight, noisy ripple, like a little stream running over its pebbly bed, for tbe deep, silent river that moves steadily aud noiselessly along in its majesty and strength. This “current” will grow less every day; for it really has no fountain bead, and, Mr. Argus, you will (lnd it so, and turn out a raise prophet ere the idea of November come round Vou may rest assured of that tact, and so don't lay the fluttering unction to your soul that the "current has a strong basis aud patriotic incentives.” Head the follow ing from the Chicago Tribune, a popular and influential paper out West. It is quite face tious, hut there is some truth in this “poetical prose.” ^ Bobs oct of Wedlock.—For some time an acquaiiitaucc of a suspicious character has beeu ripening into a By ionic tenderness, be tween the Julia Cochrane Copperheads and the Wendell Phillips abolitioulsts. It has cul minated at Cleveland. The child—or rather the twius—have beeu born. They have been carefully wrapped up in linen, lace and gauze at some expense, and laid at the door of the Union paily with the usual billet, requesting that they be taken in, as they “have no friends in this couutry.” This is written In the Cop perhead liaud. The basket is Copperhead, though the late aud gauze are abolition. The appeals lor help lor the little sufferers are from the Copperheads. On inquiry we learn that the hills were ali paid by Copperheads. Passing by chance a Copperhead conventicle, we hear them chant ing “Unto as a child Is born, l.'uio us ft sou Is given.” We therefore conclude that if a warrant were issued, the. Copperheads could be bound to support their oibpiiug. Thai is enough! Policemen take away that basket. Gan. Fremont’s Letter. Gen.Ftemont, Iu a letter dated the 4th iutt. -■•ceptiug the Domination of the Cleveland C°n\'-ujoll as a candidate for President and j clo*‘ng wuv LhL. announcement of his resig nation of his commir-.iau Major General, thanks the Contention for the confidence which led them to offer him the honorable po sition—and says that “'iu accepting the can didacy he is exposed to the reproach of crea ting a schism iu the party w ith which he has been identified. Had Mr. Lincoln remained true to the principle be was elected to defend, no schism could have been possible. This is not an ordinary ciectioh; it is a contest (or the light even to have canAdatcs. Now for the drat time since 1770 the question of cons titutional liberty has teeu brought directly before the people.” ‘ Tucordiaary rights secured under the con stitution and laws liavo been violated, and ex traordinary powers hate been usurped by the Executive. If, as we have been taught to be lieve, the guarantees for liberty, which have bf-eu made the distinctive value and glory of the couulry, arid iu truth inviolably sacred, then there must be a protection against the arbitrary violation w hich had not even the ex cuse of necessity. This schism is'msde by those who force the choice between shameful silence and a protest against wrong.” lie further says “the admirable conduct of the people, their readiness to make every sac rifice demanded of them, their forbearance and silence under the suspension of rery thiug that could be suspended, their many acts of heroism ami sacrifice were all render ad fruitless by the incapacity, or, to speak more exactly, the personal ends for which the war was managed.” The principles which form the basis of the platform of tire Convention have his nnquali fled ami cordial approval, and be heartily con curs In ail the measures proposed by It. He does not believe that couffscatiou extended to the property of all the rebels is practicable, and il it were to, he does not consider it a measure of sound policy. It is, iu fact, a measure belonging to the people themselves to decide. In the adjustments which are to follow peace no considerations of vengeance can consistently be admitted. With the extinction of slavery the party divisions creab d bj il have also disappeared. ll the convention at Baltimore will nominate any man whose past lifejustifles a well ground ed confidence in his fidelity to our cardinal principle, he (Fremont) will be happy to give a cordial and active support, but 11 Mr. Lin coln should be renominated, there will remain no other alternative but to organize against him every effort of couacientioua opposition. Gallantry of Major Welch. The Maine Farmer gives the following ac ceunt of the capture of a rebel flag by Maj. J. W. Welch, of the Me. 19th : “Col. Conner having beeu setioualy wound ed several days previously, Msj. Welch was in command of the regiment, which was one of the first to enter the entrcacUments. The rebeis were paralyzed by the audacity of the attack, and, seems; the hopelessness of resist ance, most ol them instantly threw down their ai ms and rushing through our lines were se cured and sent to the roar. Near an augle of the .fork*, however, a portion of ihe :WJ Vir ginia continued tiring upon our men, a rebel eolords-srer a short distance from them wav ing his flag. Watching hi* opportunity, Maj. Welch sprang forward, seizing tltc color bear er and taking possession of the flag, sent his prisoner to the rear. The remainder of lL« rebel regiment, finding themselves iu a tight place, soon after surrendered. Msj. VV. con signed the flag to the care of some of his men, ' and a few minutes later he was himself se verely wounded, aud cam? near falling into the hands of the enemy. While in the hospi tal at F'redericksburi.', the flag was brought to him,and is now in hi* possession. The trophy thus gallantly obtained proved to be a battle flag ol the ;i;id Virginia, inscribed with tbs name. 01 sixteen ha.ties in which the regiment had been engaged. The staff was afn rward* made to serve a very convenient purpose, be ing convert, d by the gallant Major into a pair ol crutches, which he takes a commendable pride it not pleasure in using. The flag wiii be presented by him to Gov. Cony, to he dis played among other rebel trophies in the Mate House. Msj. Welch la rapidly recover ing from iiia wound, and expects to be aide to rejoin hi* regiment iu season to enter Itich moud with Gen. Grant.” Ni:w CocNTF.ivt-kit.

To the Editor of the Prete. The last of M*y, on miny accounts, Is the best season of the year to visit Franklin, An- < droscoggln and Oxford Cos. The weather where it doesn’t rain Is delightful. The roads are “settled” and dry, but not dusty. The fresh green trees, after the “dry poles” of the * previous five months, present anew and pleas- i ing aspect. Scenery we certainly have; perhaps little j so wild as Northern New Hampshire and none so tame as Eastern Massachusetts; but no person with the least appreciation of the pic- j turesqne can glance over all the Intervening country from the Canada Highlands to the mouth of the Kennebec from the summit of Mt. Blue, or from one of the lofty mounds in Hartford upon the bills west of him thrown up in every conceivable form, 500 to 1000 feet, without at least one outburst of admiration, one demonstration of heartfelt pleasure. TUB SALEM BABIN. People who have looked through a window under the lower-most deck Into the hold of a large ship, can form some idea of the position one occupies standing upon the hills in West Freeman looking northward into the Salens Basin. It is a lovely valley five or six miles long by three wide, with the Freeman hills 1000 feet high on the south, and the steep walls of Mount Abraham 3500 feet high on the north. A broad stream winds through the middle of the valley, and here and there are scattered trees and houses with stone walls and i g-xag fences, all together presenting a sight rare and beautiful. Iu the language of the showman’s handbills, “It must be seen to be appreciated.” mb A.l UnUBUUUUl.t TAliilkl! The road upon the banka of the Androscog gin from South West Bend, through Turner I and Rumford to Berlin Falls, N. H., I believe Is not surpassed in beauty by any highway of j equal or half the extent iu New England. The river itself, alone, with its rapids, (alls, is lands, b-nds and crags, would substantiate any previous broad statement. But every ^feature of the Androscoggin Valley, at this season of the year, is attractive to a lover of nature. In the viciulty of Rumford and Peru the valley alternately widens and narrows, at one time presenting a broad alluvial plain three or four miles wide, at another a narrow defile which at a distance seems as if about to lose iuelf and traveller among the mountains. Should a stranger be suddenly placed in one of these broad valleys thus walled in on all sides by the mountains, he could perceive no possible egress to the outer world. QUAKER RIDGE. I have mentioued the scenery from Mount Blue and the Hartford Hills. I might also speak of the prospect from Tory Hill, in Phil lips, the aieent to which by the carriage-road Is over two miles one continuous steep rise; but from the Northern coast of Quaker Ridge in Leeds, is a view, said by some to be more beautiful than that from Mt. Washington.— Of course there is a lack of wildness. In fiont is the Androscoggin Pond with its nu merous fclands, and on the left the Androscog gin River. At the foot of the Ridge is a little meadow, seemingly the centre of a grand am phitheatre of hills, those In the rear rising far above those in front, till for a backwall is reached the White Mountains, the Saddleback Range, Mt. Blue and Mt. Abraham. TOWN CHARACTERISTIC*. Fusing through msny towns tome char acteristics struck me forcibly, which I ap • pend: The hilliest town it Sumner. Town all oue hill—Avon. The poorest roads iu Greenwood. Town in which all the people live In red houses—Hartford. Town that has neither church or minister— Kingfleld. Most ungodly town—Kingfleld. Town that determined to resist the draft bat did not dare to—ditto. Town abounding in women—Lewiston. They have the prettiest girls in Sweden and the best looking men in Farit. Half the people live in the second story In Auburn. In Albany the greatest curiosity Is a stran ger. I saw the homeliest man and the best look lug woman, 1 think, in Turner. The most beautiful village is Farmington Hill, though Bethel Hill is a very pretty place. Town In which nobody ean tell where his neighbors live—New Portland. It it dangerous to eEpreu Union sentiment* in New Vineyard. They raise the most bulls, human and bo vine, In Fayette. Town that raises the most sheep—An ton. The most old bachelors—New Sharon. Town In which it rains all the lime—ML Vernon. I taw the biggest scoundrel In Wilton and the meanest man In Woodstock. People constantly fear a gun-powder plot in Hartford. Distances from Phillip* are Invariably eleven miles out and five mile* back. They furnish the most criminals in Poland, but Franklin county is a-head on murderers, yet both are noted for their morality and steady habits. Cat-hanck. A Ship-Master’s Opinion. KKNNEDUMKPoBr, June 7,1804. Mr. Editor In the late collision ofSteam era Pocahontas and City of Bath, it la stated that oue steamer ported hsr wheel, while the other put hers to starboard. To almost every nautical man of experience, this will,account for the collision. Had both vessels ported their wheels (which is the Eng lish rule and law, and should be here) there is scarcely a doubt but they would have gone clear, and the sad loss of life and property would not have happened. Vessels discov ered approaching each other in thick weather or by night, should be required by law to port their wheels, and the delinquent made answer able for damages in case of colliding. Long experience in the English channels, where thick weather and long winter nights prevail, with numerous vessels afloat has made me fully sensible of the utility of this law. Collisions do there occur, but they are much less frequent than they would be under a different system, leaving the whole matter to the officer of the deck, or decks, who are often alarmed and excited in suddenly discov erittg a vessel near at hand, coming end on, and often do the very thing to bring them to gether; that is, oue puts the wheel oneway, ; the other the opposite, port and starboard, which, In nine cases out of ten would produce collision. The numerous steamers and sailing vessels now plying on southern waters, should have some fixed rule to he observed in meeting with other vessels during night time and thick weather, iudeed there should be a gener al rule for all vessels in this respect. Having noticed many collisions of lste> whereby many valuable lives and much prop erty have been lost, and believing that much of it has occurred from the want of this need ful law lias led me to make this communica tion.

The Washington Chronicle says In reply, “We are satisfied all such apprehensions are groundless. The ex ecutive clemency will hardly be exercised in behalf of so shameless a plunderer. Let the robbers be punished. The mep who would fraudulently fatten on the treasury of their Government In an hour like this, should not be screened from the just punishment of the law, as they cannot be saved from the right eous coudemuatiou of an indignant people.— Peculation and knavery stamp the annals of every Government because plunderers fawn on power, and base, lynx-eyed men are ever ready to take advantage of the necessities of the hour aud the confidence of officials; but we do not believe there ever was a Govern ment whose affairs were more purely adminis tered than this, and where as small a percent age of Its revenues was diverted into the pockets of corrupt aud dishonest men, in the midst of such enormous expenditures as this war has imposed. Certainly it would be hard to find a people where public viliany has been ae promptly inquired into and exposed, and more vigorously punished, despite the out cries of partizans and the holy horror of rebel sympahtizers. The “Ornamental Japanner” at Work. The Chicago organ of treason is in raptures over the Cleveland ticket. Mo warm is its ad miration that we look to tee it hoist Fremont and Cochrane's name to its mast-head, and to call ou the Copperhead 4th of July Conven tion to adopt the ticket. Its yesterday morn ing’s issue contains the following, double-lead ed, with a job type head line: •'Tua Gbbat Event.—The grest event which we keve to announc* Hue morning is the Action or the Cleveland CuUventi 'U yesterday, by which the He publican party is split through tue middle, tlieacced iug half lormtuga nswpa ty end taking a new name, with Fremuut and Cochrane as ita oaudidatra lor President and Vice Preaidant. l he Drat question which ariret in every mind ii, which will take the land aa the stronger party—the new, trash, vigorous, bold, deiisnt, outapvkeo. ly ranny-hmiog organiuliun. with the Pathhuder as ita leader, or the old, effete, corrupt, plunder-gorged, oivil-liberty invnolng, conutry destroying rump uf the Hepuhiiean orgatiiaAt.on, with Lincoln natrloa. We fancy that even now there can he no doubt on that score. Vigor will dialliiva decrepitude in that race." After such an endorsement as the above, can the secession concern do otherwise than support the Cleveland ticket? The “split through the middle of the Kepubiicsn party” consists of a small sliver or whittling taken from the Lincoln rail. The malcontents will feel highly flattered with the more than parental solicitude evinced by the miuious ot Jeff Davit for their ticket. Much tenderness and affection should be recip rocated by gratitude and pride. II this court ship continues, we shall uot be surprised to learn thai the Copt, at their National Conven tion, have amalgamated with the Clevelanders. Here are the parties and the opportunity for successful miscegeuaiion of the “blacks” and “whites.”—[Chicago Trib. General Butler to Garrett Davis. General Butler has sent the following char acteristic letter to Senator Davis, of Ken tucky, in response to the resolution of Inquiry offered by the latter in the United States Sen ate a few days since: ULAU^LAIU KKS I UK r IKI.l), I June 3, 1804. ) Garrett Daeie, Etij., member of Vie Senate of the Vnited Statet from Kentucky: Slit: 1 have read your resolution of in quiry. You can do me no greater lavor than to have every act of my political life, which began on the tint Tuesday of November, 1839, and ended on the 15lh day of April, 1861, most thoroughly scrutinized. I will thank you also to have every act of my official life, which began as Brigadier General of the Massachusetts militia, April 16, 1801, and will end when this war does, if not sooner, subjected to the like examination. I have no favors to ask, and but ono act of justice—that the Inquisition may not be et parte, that is, one-sided. Your obedient servant, Bknj. F. Battler.” Tub Last Tmbctetotue Memory or a Bbavb Soldier.—The runeral of Capt. Geo. W. Harvey of Co. A, 3d Maine regiment, took place on Tuesday at the Universalist church In Bath. Rev. Mr. Rugg gave an address, and Rev. Mr. Durcll and Rev. Mr. Blair par ticipated in the exercises. At the close of the exercises in the church, says the Times, the procession was formed, consisting of the City Grays, the Solar and Tolar Star Masonic lodges, the mourners and citizens, and pro ceeded to Maple Grove Cemetery, The beau tiful burial service of the Masonic order was read at the grave by Rev. Mr. Blair, who closed the same with an impressive prayer. Capt. Harvey was one of the first to enlist in the service of bis country, on the breaking out of the rebellion. Had he lived till the 4th of this mcnlh, he would have served three years, but he fell, nobly fighting for his coun try's honor, a few days previous. He was a good soldier and officer, having the respect of his men and confidence of his superior officers. The general sympathy, manifested by his as sociates In arms and the organization with which he was connected in this city, as also the large attendance of citizens at his funeral, speak his worth and the deep regret at his loss. __ The Ghost.—The Ghost of the Dismal Swamp was acted at the Theatre on Saturday night, to a respectable house, and afforded general satisfaction. The piece is a pretty good thing, and not half so dismal as its name would seem to imply. There are several laughs in it, and the allusion of the ghost is worth seeiug. We clip the above from the Richmond Whig, a little dark dingy paper, looking as If while rags were very scarce in rebeidom. It seems to us that the “Ghost of the Dismal Swamp” is a very appropriate play for that nest of trai tors, but after all there are some redeeming points in it, and places where the laugh come* in. So it teems they still have theatres in Richmond. In ancient days they were mar ried and given in marriage until the flood came. We are inclined to think tbatjust now while Grant is thundering at her ‘gates, that these theatrical performances are suspended for the present in Richmond. Jeff. Davis and Got. Vance of N'. C._ Gov. Vance has writteu a letter to Jeff. Davis on the subject of negotiating with the United States for peace. Davis spurns the idea of such uegotiation with Lincoln, “the despot,” as he calls him, and closes a long letter to Gov. Vance with the following:— 1 Tour well known devotion to the great cause of liberty and independence, to which we have all committed whatever we have of earthly possessions, would Induce you to take the lead in repelling the bare thought of ab ject submission to the enemy. Vet peace on any other terms is now impossible. To ob tain the sole terms to which you or I could listen, this struggle must continue until the enemy is beaten out ol his vain confidence in our subjugation. Then, and not till then,will it be possible to treat of peace. Till then all tender of terms to the enemy, will be receiv ed as proof that we are ready for submission, and will encourage him iu the atrocious war fare which he is uow waging.” A Melancholy case of Suicide. At mid night, on Wednesday last, at his residence, Isle Aux Boux, Dr. George M. Douglas, after takiug a quantity of morphine, stabbed him- ! self with a table knife in file right side. He lingered for 12 hours after inflicting the fatal wound and expired yesterday afternoon. For some time he had given symptoms of mental aberration. An inquest was held this after noon and a verdict returned according to the facts. The deceased was about 50 years of age, and for a very long period up to the pre sent year held the appointment of Medical Inspector of Grosse Isle quarantine station. For mauy years he has had an interest in gold mining operations In the Chaudiere District, and latterly has been one of the managers of the Dorset Gold-mining Company. His bro ther, Dr. James Douglas, superintendent of Baauport Asylum, returned to Quebec only to-day from a Transatlantic tour. OltlGlKAL AXD SELECTED. \ Xeut ArftwNiwn.nll To-Dmy. Huso.

It is suf gested that General Meade may be appointed a major-general in the regular army upon General Fremont's resignation, and that Gen. Hancock may receive the reward of his splendid gallantry by being made a brigadier general in the regular army. TueNew Molsox's Baxk.—The foundations of this structure in Montreal are rising rapidly, and we look with interest upon them, trusting to see an edifice rise, worthy of the situation, the purpose to which the building u to be de voted and the age of the architectural taste in which it is our lot to live.—[Montreal Witness. The National Division of the Sons of Tem perance will hold its annual session at Cleve land, Ohio, on the 16th of July. The following are the delegatee selected from the Grand Divis ion of Maine —S. L. Carleton, M. W'. F ; D. B Randall,S. S. Kimball, H. K. Morrill and B. F. Thorndike. Capt. Wm Harris, of Machine, who was killed May 37th, in the vicinity of Spottsylyania Court House, by the accidental discharge of his own pistol, was son of Capt Stephen T. Harris of East Machine, and a brether of Col Harris of that town. He was 31 years of age and leaves a widow and two children. Sixce Grant's flanking movements, “flank ing” is the term used by the soldiers to describe almost everything. A brave fellow the other day told a correspondent that he saw a shell coming, but “hadn't time to flank it." The shell had flanked him and taken off one of his arms. The Salem Gazette reports that a boat is the harbor, with a party of nine young men who were on a fishing excursion, was struck by a squall on Monday, and four of them were drowned. Their names were Samuel Williston, ('has. Adams, Frederick Knowlton, William Dodge. The body of the latter is the only one recovered. Those who think Gen. Grant and the brave men under his command, are not moving fast enough towards Richmond, would reader better service by lifting at the wheel than by constant ly complaining of the failure to accomplish the desired object or endeavoring to dishearten those who are doing all that can be done, by dubious prognostications. The Kiw York Sun says a little girl of that city, who is bedridden, prevailed upon her mother to buy her half a dozen fresh eggs. These she plaoed in her bed, and for some three weeks kept them constantly warm by the heat of her body. Thursday morning, the patience of the child was rewarded by a “clutch” of chickens. Miss Cushman, the famous scout and spy, who was serenaded Wednesday night at the As tor Home, has received from Mr. Leonard Gro ver, proprietor of the Washington theatre, an offer of 81,000 a week to play for him in a drama, illustrating and depicting the incidents and scenes through which she has passed as a Federal scout and spy. “Peelet” says prominent Senators and mem bers of Congress are urging upon the President the necessity of calling out, immediately, five hundred thousand one hundred days' men— two thirds of them to be sent to Grant and the remainder to be used in divisions in other di rections. The opinion is that they could be raised, armed and equipped in less than thirty days. The nonr of Mr. Ebenczer Smith of Water ville, Me., who was carried over the Falls and drowned May 31st, while attempting to hang a boom at Hooksett, was discovered floating Sun day afternoon, about three o'clock, a short dis tance above the railroad bridge. The body was immediately taken charge of by one of the Selectmen, and properly interred, until further orders from his friends. John Cocbeane, the candidate for the Vice Presidency, nominated at the recent Cleveland Convention, has boxed the political eompaaa about as much as any politician we have in the country. We have not space to trace his politi cal history, but in the last Presidential campaign he voted for Brecsenridge, making himself quite conspicuous by the following burst of elo- I quence in Tammany Hall: “I would vote for the devil incarnate if he were the regular nomi nee of the Democratic party." We trust some 1 folks will put that in their pipes, smoke it and get all the comfort they can from the fumiga tion. IP1CI A L NOTICES. 7=— . A Card. L. J.
