Disgra:3fal Nyglect—The Ramains cf Poor Boathby. The remain* ul Lieut. Col. Stephen Booth by li tliis city yeslerdiy noou—Hint •1^,11 ins pompous promises made in the ue ,,papers, aud iu the i.’ity Council, ol hon oring them with a worthy receplioti, uot so much as a corporal s guard ol either military or civd demons trai ion was paid to them. We believe the Mayor did iu a carriage go to the depot, aud with the hearse iu • lie vicinity, ac sntnniiiv tile remains to rile file llall. We stw tlie hearse, solitary anil alone, standing in frout of the building, having relieved It self of the obvious bun lien, aud then, alone, a* it came, returned. The corpse was placed somewhere in tile city building; but nobody toemec 10 kuow, or care. Wuat is ths solution of all thi-.? Lieut. Col. Boolihv was a democrat. This is a renubli c iu c y {overutnent. Tbc pauper’s si ng, “O, he is o.iig a p super, ’ awaits the dead Ooiies of ilein mra a slain iu tbe war, but, if a repub licat, abniiii-m, out-ami out-extermination-of the South, soldier comes dead, and he ha* any rich friend* and influential polilicil Connection* to attract the attention of the lieiny, dead or alive, wounded, or iu bis coffin, Lc is surrounded with a host of sycophants and toadies, and sail the streets, aud all the dwellings are lined with gaz-rs, and black eilged Handkerchiefs are flying from the wiu d iws, in testimony of tbe buuors accorded to the victim of the war! Snell is life, and such is society. But, poor Boolhby, true-hearted, earnest-minded, patri otic and devoted hero boy. as he wss, will sleep as honorably a id quietly in bis grave as the best of them. Rank will be stripped from those win have uudulifully neglected him, by and by. and uone will be so lowly as to liouor them. He was a noble young man. His im p'l'se* were patriotic, heroic aud sincere. He iitd not lived long enough to know the hol low heartedness of venal officeholders or the hvpo-risy of time serving advisers. Tlio City Uov jrum-nt, however, have disgraced themselves, not Id n. In their cold and shame less neglect of his remains.—[ Portland Ad vertiser. We have copied the above, verbatim, italic* aou ail, to sb >w oar readers the depth of malignity to which an iufamous spirit can de ■cend in its anxiety to appeal to tbe lowest of* human passions and to stir up strire. The H^trutfr is—tnd the base calumniator who penned the above knew it,or miyht have known it— alt that respect for a gallant officer could sug gest was done by the City Government to •huw appropriate honors to a faithful soldier Who ha 1 shed his bio nl in his country’s Cause. Tne body of Col. B xsthby was expected by the noon train Tuesday, when it was to have been received with military honors, but it did not arrive, nor did it by the eveniug train ot the same day. It was not known when it would arrive in teasou to give public notice, but late as was the reception of deflflite information on this point, the Mayor was about to send word to Camp Birry for escort—previously engaged— mud to Port Prebls for tile Baud of tbe 17.b Infantry, when, by the personal suggestion of Buv. Mr. B >olhby, father 01 the Colonel, and m-mbers of the Cumberland Bar, of which Col. B. was au esteemed member, he was in duced to change the arrangement so far as to have the military escort in conveying the re mains to tbe cars the next day. The reasons lor this change will be inferred from the fact. | that though tho body of Col. Bootbby had been embalmed, owing to inability to procure a suitable coffin it was sent home unprepared for exposure to public view. It had not been laid out, but was simply wrapped in sheets and placed iu an ordinary cheap coffin. fcv. Mr. Boolhby had been on to tho hospital where his son died, to bring the body home, amt he returned with it as far as Baltimore, j where he left It in caro of the Express Com pany and hastened home in advance. As we have said, it was at his suggestion that tin body was takeii from the depot to the city building, accompanied by the Mayor, Rev. Ur. Boolhby and his friends, and the official committees of the City Com cil and the Cum berland Bar, and conveyed to an ante room, —where undertakers were in waltiug,—prop erly laid out, clothed in the uniform of his rkltlr, alnl placed in a magnificent black walnut and grained rosiwood casket, from lie establishment of Mr. S. L. Lyford, corner if Lime and Federal streets, and as uice an r irticle as could be procured in the city. It ! was then—at about 2 o’clock P. M.—laid c< n sta'e iu the Common Council room, where 1 n it was visited by crowds of our citizens—la- j u lies and gentlemen—during the afternoon, a: and the next forenoon, up to the time when it it became necessary to remove it to the care. n So much for the facts. We venture the as- I lerliou that the thought of Col. Boothby’a j p political antecedents never entered the mind w of any member of the City Government, no 1' more than did a similar thought wheu the re- g inaius of tile gallant Berry were received iu o the city, and laid in state iu the same room so 1 IV lately occupied by the remains of Col. B. If n Col. Boothby icas a Democrat,—of which tl we find some serious doubts expressed, though f, we know nothing personally of the fact,—one thiug is absolutely certain: he held iu utter f. contempt that spirit, so constantly exhibited o iu the Advertiser, which sympathises with the o rebels, and seeks to embarrass the Government ii in its efforts to lnaiutain.ils rightful authority, p lie was a noble, h'gh-miuded and patriotic l man, loving Ireedom and detesting slavery, c and he proved his sincerity by giving bis ii young life to uphold the oue and to thwart p the infamous tendencies of the other. Ii Another thing is equally cerlau: that the 1 above coarse, waligueut attack upou the City 11 Government, aud tbe indirect assault upon r such men as Gen. Dow, who, in addition to ' wouuds received in the service, suffered lung ‘ weary mouths ot incarceration in a rebel Bar 11 tile, and Gou. Fessenden who came home se- * verely mutilated for life, dud no sympathy from honorable, high-minded Democrats in 1 this city. They utterly loathe the spirit which 1 inspired them,aud have no words adequate to : 1 express their imliguation, as we kuow from ' their voluntary statements to us in numerous instances. We close this article with the remark, that 1 the vile creature who will attempt, over the eloquent though speechless remains of a gal- ' lant Li.Uiop ■■.ii atarwlinif UmIhpo Ilia nowltf on ened grave, to stir up party animosities—tu |; do this while his own traitorous heart is con : ' stonily assailing the cause to uphold which the soldier ireely gave his life—deserves—as | he must receive—the exeera l n < f every true mau, aud cau be regarded only as a walking pestilence, whose very presence poll ut* s the loyal atmosphere through ttuich he moves, whose name is a stench in the nostrils of ah patriotic ineu, and whose prolonged existence ^ can be regarded only as a permitted curge to the community which he labors to demoralize. Maine Troops in the Galf Department Geo. E. Weeks, Esq., of Augusta, who bn just returned from the Uulf Department, fur nishes the Kennebec Journal with the follow ing facie in relation to Maine troops iu th s Department which are of general interest: The I2th Regiment was at Lake Ponch&r train, near Lake House; the l.kli aud 15th were on their way down the river, being about to couie borne on a luriougli, Uaviug re enlisted; tbe 14tli was at Baton lt >ug,e; the , 2ikU auU at Morganzia, near the mouth ol Red river; the 2ml Cavalry was at Grten ville. Lx, exerp mg four companies at the trout under Maj. Muler. Tue men of the 2d Cavalry, presented Maj Uuicliiusou ou the 231 nil, with a pair o. (smith & Wesson’s gold and silver mounted pistols,with a case,oi the value of #110. The presentation speech was made by Lie .t A. .1 Nieuols of Augusta. Msj’ U. is exceedingly * popular with Ins ineu, aud this gift is a loki n of their appreciation ut him. The 2d had lost but three ineu since leaving Augusta. Thu prevaleut disease among the soldiers in the Gulf Department is a chronic diarrhea caused by driukiug the Mississippi river wa ter. The wounded men are Irequeutly very much weakened by this disease. Large uum iters ol sick aud wounded Maine soldiers an in all the hospitals at New Orleans. Mr Weeks visited all the hospitals, at the request ol the Uovenor, aud reports the patieitU com fortable and well caied for. He is particular ly enthusiastic in praise of the Sanitary Com . mission aud '.lie work it is pcrloriniug. lie ' says that we con have no idea of the extent of its operations, and the blessings ic coolers on sick and wounded soldiers, lie has a list of all the Maine soldiers in hospitals at New Orleans. Mr. Weeks has also, at the request of I he Stale authorities, collected much information relative to the removal of bodies from the Uep irtment, the expense attending such re moval. ami the method of proceedure, which be will hi h ippy to communicate to any out wishing suclniulormaiion. .Telegraph Enterprise. The Senate Coimnit'.e on Commerce lias lost no time in acting upon the suggestions ol Mr. Seward in relaliou to the project of an inter-continental telegraph. A bill is already -v.w.w »V ..VS for the plan indicated by Mr. Collins, which we presented to our readers in last Tuesday's issue. By this bill, Mr. Collins and liis asso dates are authorize., to construct and main tain a line, or lines of telegraph, Irom an) poict on the Hue of the l’acitlc Telegraph, 0 through any of thu Territories ol the United States, to the boundaries ol British America, with such branch Hues as may be needed to open communication with the various mining districts and the settlements in these Territo ries. Right of way is also granted over any unappropriated public lands of the United S utej, with the right to take any limber or stones, for constructive purposes. A public vessel is to be detailed to assist i t the survey, aud lay down a sub-marine cable. It, wilhlti five years, the line shall be put up so as to reach the mouth of the Aiuoor River, the Secretary of State is authorized to enter into a contract for the use of the line lor a term of teu years, at the rate of $50,0 0 per year, the Government having i riorlty at all times in the dispatch of messages. The line is to be thrown open to the public upon the payment of the established charges. Tins great enterprise is bound to be carried through aud the great globe itself encircled with magnetic wires, Death of Rev Geo W Bartktt A letter from Capt. John D. Myrick, of Co K, ist Me. Cavalry, gives the particulars of 1 the sad death, in ait engagement at "McGee’s Mills,” Va., of Rev. Geo. VV. Bartlett, hereto- ' fore noticed in our columns. We are indent- 1 ed to the Maine Farmer for the to.lowing ex- ' tract: I lie was struck !u the breast by an unex- * plodcd shell trout the enemy, and literally ' < blown to pieces. A few uiiuutes before the | fatal casualty occurred, Capt. Myrick passed him ou bis way to the trout, where the regi ment was engaged, leaving him in the rear with the supports,apparently beyottd the reach ol danger. In levs than oue hour his spirit had passed < it ward aud his lifeless dust was mingled *itb its parent earth. The remains were interred near the spot where he fell, the funeral service being pet formed by the Chap- ‘ lain of a New York regimeut, who chanced { to be in the vicinity at the lime. Mr. Bartlett < was a native ol l.iteliUeld, in this county. Ik ied for the ministry at Cttmhtidge Divinity School, and lor a snort period was pastor ol « the Unitarian church in this city. Soon after I the breaking out of the rcbelli hi, lie was ap- , pointed Chaplain of the 14 It Maine, and ac cotnpanied tint regiment to New Orleans, par ‘ ticipaling in the dangers and hardships of the 1 year's campaign which succeeded the occupa- « lion of tiial city by our forces under General Butler. Soon alter the battle of Katun Rouge, in which lie distinguished himself as a volun- 1 leer aid to Gen. Nickerson, he tesigned his 1 commission and returned home. He tvas suit, e sequent|y appointed by Gov. Coburn Chaplain t ol llto 1st Maine cavalry, and all through the present campaign |„ Virginia, lit which the 1 regiment has been actively engaged, he has f faithfully performed the duties of his sacred v office, ne was an esteemed man ill all the relations of iifo, and his tragical death will be mourned alike by bis comrades and by a large circle of friends in Maiue. --- g Death or Col. Keyes—We learn that 0 Col. Hamlin W. Keyes, of the 14ih U. S. In- P fantry (Regulars), who was wounded In the n battle of Spottsy lranla Court Hou-e, died In 1 the hospital at Washington Wednesday morn- i Ing. Col. Keyes was a gallant officer aud a v noble hearted man. a Letter from the Federal Capital. Washington, June 14th, 1864. )th• Editor of tin Press: It is hardly ueccanary to say that the pro edings of Congress during last week were )t of a character to excite any very lively in rest. The Convention at Baltimore acting j astroi g counter irritant,left us at the Cap al for a lill'e time In great quiet. Nor is it “ceesary to say that the nominations of the | uion Convention are well received here, and omise to be very popular, uor that irem none , ill the noble Unionist named *for the Vice residency receive a more geuerous and un rudgiug support than from those whose views the public iuteiests as well as pcisunal pre- j rencea would have led them to prefer the re- ; nmiualion of the statesman who has so wor lily and well filled that high position thus i r during the present term. And now that the Presidential campaign is lily opened, the present protracted session r Congress begins to grow a little tedious— r at least one might judge from the tbicken ig signs of an early adjournment. There sp ears a strong indisposition to take up new usiness and an inclination to deler till Dc •mber, much that is already begun, except ig of course,some few measures of prime iin- ■ ortance, including tax and tariff bills yet to j e perfected. These will consume nearly all j lat remains of the present month, and per aps a little more. Thu defeat of the Bank upt hill in the House, by a majority of one ole, a majority which might easily chance to e reversed upon another day and at a fuller ession, Is probably decisive for the present, jr the reason above indicated. A great deal of interest, curious rather than nxious, is felt regarding the nominations that nay be made and the platform to be adopted ijrihe self styled National Democratic Con entlon. It is probable that Oren. Fremont rill have a pretty strong party, his letter ac epliug the nomination already tendered him. laving won mightily on the hearts of the Cop terhead leaders. Some of the moat ultra Dem tcralie politicians here are believed to favor tint. It seems hardly possible, however, that m opposition that has all along been an oppo iriou simply, and nothing more, without any itlier doctrine or policy than indiscriminate anil linding will) every thing that is done for •he preservation ofthe Union, can he united ipon any one positive platform or combined ipou any one man. It would doubtless l>e a treat help if those having the undertaking in land should find themselves embarrassed by 10 scruples of conscience and hampered by no ncouveuient principles, and in this aspect of lie case the Copperhead politicians of the .'ountiy have an undoubted right to approach .he enterprise hopefully. Ilev. Dr. Breckinridge, temporary Chairman if the Idle Union Convenlioji, preached by in vitation in tho Hall of Representatives last Sunday. The flo tr and galleries were alike ;-owded and hundreds went away unable to obtain entrance, or to get within hearing dis tance. S i great indeed was the press to hear this eminent divine that among those who itood noticed, Senator Chandh r,while ds fellow Senator, B. Uratz Brown, with ex s nplary humility, took the lowest seat, the loor. Among his bearers were many other senators and a largo number of Represonta ilvet, the' President ami Parson Browulow. Those who came rxpccting to witness a die day of pulpit oratory, and those who anlici lated a discourse respcctiug the great nation 11 struggle uow going on, wer,e alike disap >ointed. The text was 1st Timothy, 1st chap, ind 18th verse: “Tills is a faithful saving and vortby of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus :aine into the world to save siuuers of whom I mi chief.” The sermon from it was a paiu, tamest and faithful appeal in favor of persoo tl piety. Whether as regards its direct prac :ieal character or its doctrinal orthodoxy, it was wor<£p of some sturdy Puritan divine. The Dr. is considerably past middle life, *ith Hair much silvered, and full beard still more :ray, full stature and strongly marked features. At the close of bis discourse he received the :ongratulations of many friends. The arrest of Lieut. Wm. II. Broughton oj t e Id h Maine, soon after the Wiideruess bat tles lor absence without leave, having been made the subject of much remark, it seems jnly just to au officer who won his shoulder itraps before the rebel batteries at Fredericks jurg. and who has always borne a high char icfer lor personal bravery as well as efficiency is an officer, to state in a few words his own version of the affair referred to. It is substan tially as follows: Having received a hurt iu the ankle from a spent ball, which though not >erious made marching for the time impracli :able, he went to the Division hospital in'end ug to remain a short time until the lameuest ind soreness should subside. As the Army night move at any time, he was a'd vised by •he Division Surgeon to go to FredericHBurg. When he arrive 1 there he found orders had oecn received for ail persons arriving to go brward to Belle Plain. As he had no alter ative but to walk back twelve miles, he went >n in the ambulance to the point indicated, uid and was thence brought to Washington. Here he was arrested wilh others and return id to the front. On liis arrival at his regi nent he was examined by the regimental Sur jeon; tiie Colonel made a statement of his :aso to Gen. Cutler, and Lieut. Broughton was in mediately released from arrest. • It is not strange that in tiie burry and ex iitement attending arrests of officers and men 10 numerous as were made at the time refer red to,injustice should have been done to tome. Due private who was sent back as a “tkedad ller” was obliged to undergo an auipulaliou jeforc lie readied the Army. Mr. Jacob Larry, refugee from Virginia, ar rived here last week, having taken adv&utage >f the presence of our army near Uichmoud, o make his escape, lie has lived iu Virginia ’or more than forty years, and is now on his iray to Gorham, Maine, w here I understand iis former home to have been. lie graduated it Bowdoiu Collego iu 1831, haviug beeu a nember of that institution at the same lime is Senator Fessenden. During last week the Maine 3J, which came tut three years ago, under the command ol Jol., now Major General Howard, and which living earned a reputation for bravery wor hy of its first commander, has now come to is know i as the “Inviucibles,” with several ither regiments from other States, pasxd hrougii the city oa their way home. " T. S. P. Vegatable Miscenegation Wkbt Minot, June 14,1894. "o the Editor of the Portland Prets. Tuerels iu the garden of Kev. D. B. Ilolt, f West Miuut, an apple tree, which this pring bore, among its blossoms, a perfect, all blown white rose! Iu every respect siuii tr to a rose on a rose^ bush. The tree blos otned quite full and after its blossoms had fal :ii off this teas remained perfect lor u Dinn er of days, till tome children picked it off; so ■ will nut be known whether it would have orue Iruit or not, nor what kind of fruit it rouid have been. Thi§ phenomenon goes to rove the sex of tne vegetable, as well as aui ml kingdom. We hear much oi the amaiga taliou of tiie white and black races iu this ouatry, and when it happens the progeny sualiy has reteii^jlauces more or less of both ices; but we have never heard ol tiie amal atnation of an apple tree ana a rose bush, ith a perfect rose as the result. M. A Delegation Come to Grief There is a theory out West that John Mor an, when lie recently entered Kentucky, was u his way to the Chicago Convention, accom inied by a Southern delegation. If he was ot of most retiring habits lie might have at oned liis purpose, for uo doubt, If he had fal n into tbe hands of General Burbridge, he ould have hid a chance to see Chicago—as i prisoner of war.

The enterprise is likely to fail as the Government has a full supply on hand, and will not allow its agents to buy be yond a reasonable prioe, which is seTen to ten cents less than speculators demand. It is said other combinations exist to force up prices in certain articles. I New Publications. The Fibst Principles of a New System or Philosophy.

Stumblino Blocks. By Gail Hamilton, author of “Country Living and Country Thinking,” “Gala Days,” &c. Boston: Ticknor & Fields. 1 vol. lfitno. For sale in this city by Hali L. Davis. This is a work that will be sought after and read with the deepest interest. Its perusal will not only serve to while away a leisure hour, but will impress the mind with important facts, beariug upon every day life. The author han dles subjects of the greatest moment in a bold and unvarnished manner, convincing the judg ment of the reader of the justness and truth fulness of her statements. She criticises the church from within; has learned as a church member the faults and short-comings she assails; and is urged by her vivid perception of the sub stance of Christianity to expose the shams which take its name. Many good people will think the satire too sharp, but the satire which is implied is much sharper than that which is expressed. The mere fact that such a book is needed, that so much wit an l thought should be expended i\ ridiculing prejudices so puerile. keenest of all sarcasms that cau be imagined. There is little or nothing in the volume which I rises above truism and the commonest common sense, and that there are full grown persons in New England churches who are in such a besot ted condition as to be suable to )ierceive such , trite truths except as illuminated by the rockets of epigram and lightnings of indignation, does t not speak well for our oivilixat'.nn, cr for out .
