There is probably no establiahment in the State, uuiesa it bo the Press, that ha* iu it so much wisdom that it may not gain knowledge from the experience of its coteinporaries.— There are suggestions, valuable to the fra ternity, which tr-ay be made iu relation to Ad vertising Agents, collection of bills, price* of work, Ac., Ac., and we hope the couvention may be held.—[Uangor Whig. If our Penobscot contemporary is burdened with “suggestion*” which he i* anxious to make for the good of “the fraternity,” we have not the slightest objection iu the world to his making them; for our part, we find it a* much as we can do to take care of our own business, and do not feel competent to advise others, except to use their own best Judgment, and to keep as independent as pos sible of all embarrassing combinations which may interfere with individual rights and in clinations. David can never light in Saul’s armor, nor can one man always work to ad vantage with another’s tools. So far the Preas has been obliged to “row its own boat,” and by the favor aud appreciation of the pub lic it expect* to do so in future. It stands In no one’s way; it complains of no one stand ing in its way. It has it* own scale of prices, does business with Advertising Agents when It can do so with interest to itself, and collects and pays its bill* as promptly as possible, and In relation to all such matters—private busi ness matters—we have no more desire to ask or make suggestions than we have in re lation to our household expenses or the taste to be observed iu selecting a wardrobe. Aua m mis we snow no opposition to, or lack of sympathy for, association for legiti mate purposes. We are glad as any one to cultivate pleasant relations with brother ed itors, hut we protest against combinations to regulate private business, in all cates, and we do this on principle whether it be among the gold gamblers of Wall Street, the journeymen printers or the employers of such printers.— The employer and employed should be left perfectly free from outside influences to make bargains and business arrangements for their mutual benefit. In no other way can they maintain their manhood, and feel that they are acting from a sente of personal and indi vidual responsibility. So long as they can agree no oulaide influence should Interfere with that agreement. The busluess mau wanting to advertise should feel that no com bination U arrayed against him to extort a high price; the publisher should feel mat no combinations are formed to withhold advertis ing exuept at ruinous rates. In the matter of collecting bills every man must be governed by his own judgment. Or dinarily his own imperious Interests will re quire him to make prompt collections, and if he fails to do so he will Und himself undergo ing au exhausting process that will soon tail him essentially. Touching the Insertion of advertisements as reading matter, we take it every editor must use his own judgment. If his readers are satisfied we don't know that we should complain. Such are our views, offered in kindness.— Ko scsle of prices esu answer alike for Ban gor and Portland, any more than for Port land and Boston. Portland patronage will not go largely to Bangor, nor vice term. We repeat what we have said before: let each la bor to merit success, and he will seldom reap disappointment. Tuk PilKss.—The verdict of the public thus lar in relation to the change in the Press June 1, is most gratifying to the proprietors. The increase of price was a necessity we could not escape. Still we expected to lose many •ubscribers by so doing, aud actually reckoned a decrease of 500 in our daily edition, before we should recover steady headway. We have now had one month's experience, and we find that, instead of losing, we have made a small net gain, the discontinuance figuring up 72, and the new subscribers 78. Considering the j attending circumstances^nd our own carefully made calculations, we regard this ns the most gratifying mouth's experience of the two years’ history of the Press. On our Weekly list we made a net gain for the month, of 81. Second Coxukkhsional Distkict._At the Union Convention lor the 2d Congression al District, held at Augusta yesterday, lion. Sidney Perham, of Paris, was nominated for re-election to Congress, and Hon. T. A. D. Fessenden, of Auburn, was nominated as the candidate for elector for that District. Maine Central Railroad. * 1 We have received the Annual Report of the Maine Central Railroad Company, preseutedat th annual meeting In Waterville, June 29th. It gives a detailed statement of the traniae tion and management of the business of the different departments for the year ending May 31st, 1894. It appears from the Dir.dors’ Report, that the total funded debt of the Company is $2,000, 000. If the net income hereafter should be equal to that of the last year, it will be ample to pay all the interest on the funded debt and the yearly instalments of $20,000 each, of the Bangor city bonds, as they fall due. '1 here has beeu an increase in the earnings of the road, over those of the previous year, of $78,992,31; an increase of the expenses of $02, 294,17; the total earnings for the past year be ing $402,024, 20; the expenses $211,297,02, the net earnings $190,770,03, an increase over that of the previous year $10,098,14. The Superintendent says:— The repairs upon the track have probably beeu more extensive thau in auy previous year. About live miles of tire road bed had been ballasted. Four hundred and ninety-five tons of re-rolled rails have been laid down, ; cover about live and one-lburth miles of track, |as against two hundred tons in the previous year,) two hundred and forty tons of which were purchased at a costot $10,787,72 aud the balance paid for by exchange of old rails at an average cost of $34,00 per ton, including re rolliug, punching, freight and insurance. In addition to which two lires were kept at work for about three-fourths of the year in repairing old rails. The number of passengers carried over the road this year is 152,989, while last year it was but 107/152. The number of tons of merchan dize carried over the road this year is 75,950,77> last year, <12.154, 95. Received for carring tLe U. S, mail $18,509,78. The President says:— Thecnsolidation of the two Companies now constituting the Maiue Central Railroad Com pany was undoubtedly wise, and must result lu great advantage to both, as the business is more ecou mically conducted than under tiie contract between the two former Companies, and the union adds strength lo tire various is sues of llonds and other liabilities, and gives additional confidence in the responsibility of The annual meeting was hold at Wa terville Wednesday. There was a very large attendance of stockholders. Quite a contest occurred on the ballot for Director^ The 1 ticket run in opposition to that of Messrs. John Ware and Samuel Taylor was elected. The lollowing are the Directors elected for the present year: Mollis Bowman of Ban gor; Ansel P. Morrill of Headtleld; John Lynch and Josiah H. Drummond of Port land; Edward T.

Mr. Bice of Maine, from the Select Com mittee ou Defence of Northeastern Frontier, has reported the following hill to provide for the defence of the Northeastern frontier, which is now before the Mouse of Represen tatives : Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United Stales of America in Congress assembled, That where as the State of Maine has appropriated for the use of the European and North American Railway Company of Maine, for the construe lion of a railway essential to the defence of tbe northeastern frontier of the United Slates, the proceeds of ail her claims against the United States arising prior to the year eigh teen hundred and sixty, the Secretary of the Treasury is authorized and required to audit and tlx the amounts of the said claims as fol lows, viz.: one dollar and twenty-live cents per acre shall be allowed to Maiuo for tbe laud assigned to settlers uuder tbe fourth ar ticle of tire treaty of Washington, concluded on the niulh of August, eighteen hundred and lorty-two. The interest account of Maine, uuder tbe act approved March third, eighteen hundred and tlfty-one, entitled “An act au thorizing of the payment of interest upon the advances made by the State of Maine for the use of the United Stales government in the protection of the northeastern frontier,” shall be restated upon tbe principles directed to In applied to tbe case of Maryland by lie twelfth section of au act approved on tire third of March,eighteen hundred and flfiy seven, entitled “An act to provide for certain civil expenses of the government for the year ending ou the thirtieth of Juris, eighteen hun dred and flfty-eigbt. The interest account of Maine, as the owner of one-third of the claim of Massachusetts, for advauces for the United Stales during the war of eighteen hundred and twelve and eighteen hundred and fifteen, with Great Britain, shall ire stated and allow ed according to the principles applied as aforesaid to the case of Maryland. The dam ages to Maine by reason of the loti of limber upon tbe disputed territory, in consequence of the suspension of her jurisdiction from eighteen hundred and thirty-two to eighteen hundred and thirty-nine, uuder a diplomatic arrangement made by the United Slatea in eighteen hundred and thirty-two sliall lie ms certalued and awarded. Sec. 2. And tie it further enacted, That the Secretary of the Treasury Is hereby au thorized aod directed to pay, out of any moneys in the treasury not other* ise appro priated, to the State of Maine, for the ese of the European and North American Railway Company, all sums ascertained to be due to said Slate, as directed to tie audited and fixed by the first section of this act: Provided. That no more shall be paid than shall be equal to ten thousand dollars per mile for the maiu line and branches of the said railroad, actual ly constructed by said company, not to exceed in length two hundred and thirty miles, and to be paid over from time to time as the con struction of said road shall be certified to the Secretary of the Treasury by the Governor of Maine, and Dot less than thirty miles there of in actual operation, and so on as each ad ditional section of thirty miles shall l>e put in operation: And prodded, further, That no payment shall he made until the said rail way Company shall enter into contract, iu such form as shall be prescribed by the Secre- j tary of the Treasury, for the transportation by said company over their main line and branches of the troops aud munitions of war of the United States free of expense to the government, and for the carrying of tho mails of the United States at reasonable rates, cor responding with those paid for similar services over other roads of equal cost, and to be fixed by the President of the United States. The Prni.isiiKUs of the Chicago Tril une are too sharp-set to suit eveu a down east yankee. Last jear they declined an ex change with the Press except upon receipt cf the difference in terms, which was paid by a friend of ours iu that city. When the West ern Boards of Trade were here, receiving the hospitality of Portland, and an editor of the Tribune was invited to make free U6e of our office aud of all information wre could impart, we called his attention to the sharpness of his colleagues, snd be apologised for them and assured us we should hereafter find them conrkous iliI obliging; but when the year came round, though our paper is apout the size of theirs, they unceremoniously cut our acquaintance. We are half Inclined to con cede the new claims of the editors of that city—that it is becoming the greatest hog ■naaket in the west. Paudoxkii.—The Governor and Council on Wednesday pardoned Robert Harvey, of Deer Isle. Harvey has been in prison lour years, under a five years' sentence. He was a lad of eighteen wlieu, under the influence of Jo Mitchell, an unprincipled Indian, they together set fire to an old building, and robbed a shop of a few dollars. The Indian appear ed to be tho ringleader, but the boy sullered. His conduct in prison had been excellent, and under the circumstances his punishment suffi cient, and he was set freo with the injunction to "sin no more.” John Quinn also had two days taken from his three years’ sentence, and he was restored to citizenship. Quinn lias been a well behav ed man iu prison, aud no one has surpassed him In amount of work done. Pric88 and Investments. The following very sensible article we find in ths Boston Trumcript, but presume, as u was not leaded it was copied from some other paper: Financiers of the Copperhead persuasion are as unreliable as politicians of the tame school. Botli aim at the ante goal by different roads. The one wishes to weaken the gov ernment by crippliug our armies, the other by depreciating our luuds. The favorite text ol the disloyal riuauciers just now is Brices aud the Currency. "Brices,” they say, "are not really high; it is the Currency which is low. For a gold dollar you can to day buy as much as you ever could.” They regard gold as the oue fixed tlilug arouud which everything else, revolves. The truth is that gold, like every thing else, lluctuates in value iu accordance with the law of demaud aud supply. Brice* are high. Every man who has any thiug to buy or sell, uo matter whether it Ire loud or clothing, gold or labor, knows this aud acts accordingly. That these high prices are caused in part by the increase iu the ainouat ol the currency is true. But this is only one cause out of many. No matter w hat the me dium ol making exchanges, prices iu times of war must always be high. Aud that for the simple reason that the demand for every pro duct of labor is increased, while the supply is diminished. War draws the farmer from the plow aud the mechanic from his tools. It also changes the direction of labor. The ship wright, who formerly built clippers lor com merce, now builds Monitors and Ironsides for war. War is also, of necessity, wasteful. An army of a million men must of necessity con sume more than the same million would at home. War pi ices are therefore high prices, by a law just as inevitable as that of the at traction of. gravitation. War prices always have been and always must he high prices. If every dollar ol paper currency were destroyed to-morrow, and only specie used iu payment, prices would he high. A redundant currency increases this evil, but does not create it. The probability is lhat the currency ol the couutry has now reached its highest point. To the general advance in prices there is hut one marked exception, aud lhat is iu the bonds of the Government. They are cheap now, for the simple reason that the exigencies of the war have made them abundant. When the war ends, they must be dear, because the supply will he cut otf. The man who invests his capita! iu them now must make a good in vestment, lor they pay a fair interest and are more secure than anything else cau he. The mau who has a hundred dollars In Govern ment hondB has really a mortgage, to that amount upon every acre ol land, every mile of railway, every ship, every house, ever ar ticle of property, real or personal in the land. He has, moreover, no trouble to collect the interest. Government does lhat for hitn. It is a great error to suppose that great captalists alone have an interest in owniug Government stock. Every man who has any surplus, however small, should owu it. If he owns none he is a debtor to those who do, and his property iu every shape Is mortgaged lor that debt. If he owns this stock he is so lar a creditor, and holds a mortgage upon every other man's property. In the long run these mortgages will cancel each other; and our national debt, so far as it Is held by our selves, will be paid otf from the accumulations of past and future years. But the man to whom the nation owes nothing will have to pay his share of the interest aud receive nothing; while the man who Is a creditor of the nation receives interest as well as pays it. Government stocks at present price*, or at price* which are at all likely to prevail during the war. are iu every way the best invastments possible. Every man who wishes to avoid the evils inseparable from high prices should in vest a portion of his surplus earnings iu capi tal Government bonds. Hospital Accommodations in this City. Washington, June 25, I8CL John T. Gilman Esq.—Dear Sir:—By a letter which I received yesterday, containing an article cut from your paper, I learued that the citizens of Portland are desirous of bav* ing a Hospital established there, for the bene fit of opr wounded Maiuc men, aiid, with reference to this, I called on the Secretary of War, and Surgeon General, this morning. I stated to them that I thought one hund red and fifty, or more, might be accomtnodal el at the Marins Hospital in Westbrook, and one hundred at the Hospital connected with our City Aims House. They both as semed to the importance and necessity of having immediate provision made for the wounded men ou their arrival at Portland; and I am glad to say that an order has been forwarded today, by the Surgeon General to Hr. Lyman, Mebical Inspector for New Eng land, to visit our city at once and make the uecessarp inspection and rc>port to the War Department here. The Marine Hospital is under the care and charge of the Secretary of the Interior, but if the Medical Inspector report favorably as to accommodations that may be had there, 1 suppose there will be no difficulty in having at leaat, a portion of the buildings appropri ated, temporarily, to the use of the War De partment. 1 hare no doubt the people of Portland will he prompt in extending nil the facilities in their power, for this important movement. Many of our wounded and sick soldiers have already been sent to Maine, who wotdd have been much relieved in their sufferings, had there peen Hospital accommodations ready for them on their arrival at Portland : and there are many more yet to be seut for ward, who,ou reaching our city, will be pooi ly prepared to coutinue their journey sixty miles further, to Augusta, before receiving the medical and surgical care ot the Hospi tal. Very truly yours, L. D. M. Sweat. Where ia the Place ? Wo observe the following lu the report of Wednesday’s debate in the House, on the tax ation of United States hands: “Mr. Sweat, of Maine, said he was inform ed by a judge of the Supreme Court of tbe United States, that he was unwilling to invest in bonds exempted from taxation, because it was odious to tho neighborhood iu which he llred.” We trust that the fuller report in the Globe will give some clue to tho locality of the “neighborhood” in which this judge lives. At present it is difficult to surmise whore the place can be.—[ Boston Advertiser. Smuggled ooods Seized at Camden. —The Belfast Ago sajs information was re ceived at the Custom House iu that city that a schooner was on her wsy to some port iu tills district, with a cargo of smuggled goods. She was dcicrilied as the schooner Cottage of Bock port. Deputy Collector T. R. Simouton, Esq., of Camden was apprised of the fact, and last week die nabbed her, w ith about three th ousand dollars worth of smuggled goods on board. He kept watch for her night and day for nearly a week, as she lay ofl' and on wait ing for an opportunity to laud her cargo with out being discovered. Much credit is due to Mr. Simouton for his vigilance iu the matter Bight Between the Eves.—The Louis ville Journal, eager to do tho dirty work of slavery remarks : "The abolitionists advocate amalgamation; but before they practice it, they will have to get the consent of the nigger, aud the tii—'er is getting proud.” To which the Louisville Press responds with the following stinger: “Heretofore the patriarchal aristocracy have not consulted the nigger, but practiced amalgamation at will, aud were always proud.” Mh. C. G. Memminokk, the Confederate Secretary of the Treasury, is said to have re binned. W « think he made a mistake in bo doing. While the concern pretended to pay, h*i held the most enviable place on earth; but since it has abandoned tbe i (Tort nnd ceased to pay anybody, eveu iu its utterly worthless stiinplaaters, we should have advised him to hold on and enjoy the dignity of office with out Its cares and labors, lie used to have the hardest post in Dixie; since Grant crossed die Lamunkey, he has had tbe easiest.

Heavy Artillery. Latter to President Lincoln. The following letter of the National Com mittee to President Lincoln, informing him I of his nomination by the National Union C'on j veution, fully explains itself:— New Vobk, June 14,18(54. I Hon. A hr nit <uu Lincoln; Sir: The National Union Convention, which assembled in Baltimore on the ~ih of June, 18(54, has instructed us to Inform you that you were nominated with enthusiastic unanimity | for the Presidency of the United States, for ' four years, from the 4th of Match next. The resolutions of the Convention, which we have already had the honor of placiug in your hands, are a lull and dear statement of Hut principles which inspired its action, and whicu as we believe, the great body of Uniou men in Lhe country heartily approve. Wheth er those resolutions express the ualioual grat itude to onr soldiers and sailors, or the ualiou at scorn of compromise with rebels, and con sequent disliouur, or ltie patriotic duty of union and success; whether they approve the Proclamation of Emancipation, the Constitu tional amendment, me employment of former slaves as Uniou soldiers, or tue solemn obli gation of th ' Government promptly to redress the wrongs of every soldier of the Union of whatever color or race; whether they declare the inviolability of the pledged faith of the nation, or oiler the national hospitality to the oppressed ol every land, or urge the union by railroad of the Atiaulio and Pacitlc oceans; whether they recommend public economy and vigorous taxation, or assert the tixed popular oppositiou to the establishment, hy armed force of lori igu monarchies in the immediate neighborhood of the United states, or declare that those only are worthy of oliicial trust who approve uureservedly the views and policy in dicated in th i resolutions—they were equally hailed with the bearliucas of profound convic tion. Believing with you, sir, that this is the peo ple’s war tor the maintenance of a Govern ment which you have justly described as ,-of tbe people, hy the people, for the people,” we are very sure that you will be glad to know, not only from the resolutions themselves, hut Iroin the singular harmony and enthusiasm with which they were adopted, how warm is the popular welcome of every measure in the prosecution of the war, which is as vigorous, unmistakable and uuiaulleriug as the national purpose itself. No right, for instance, is so precious and sacred to the Amerieaif heart as that of personal liberty. Its violation is re garded with just, instant and universal jealou ; sy. Vet in this hour of iicril every faithful citizen concedes that, for Th- sake of national existence and (he common welfare, Individual liberty may, as the Constitution provides in ease of rehelhou, be sometimes summarily con strained, asking only with paiulul anxiety that in every instance, and to the least detail, that absolutely necessary power shall not be hasti ly or uuwiselv exercised. ^'ye believe, sir, that the honest will of the L nion men of the country was never more truly represented iliau in this convention.— Their purpose we believe to be the overthrow of armed rebels in Die tleld, and the security i of permanent peace aud union by liberty and justice under the Constitution. That these re sults are to he achieved amidst cruel perplex ities they are fully aware. That they are to be reached only by cordial unanimity of couusel is undeniable. That good ineu may sometimes dill'er as to the means ami the time, they ; know. That in the conduct of all human af fairs the highest duty is to determine, in the augry conflict of passion, how much good may lie practically accomplished^ is their siucere persuasion. They have watched your official course, therefore, with uullagglug attention; aud amidst the bitter taunts of eager friends and the fierce denunciation of enemies; now moving too fast for some, now too slowly lor others, have seen you throughout this tremen dous contest, patient, sagacious, faithful, just: leaning upon the heart of the great mass of tliP people, and satisfied to he moved by its mighty pulsation. H is for this reason that, loug before the convention met,the popular instinct had plain ly indicated you as its candidate ; and the Convention therefore, merely recorded the popular will. Your character and career proveyour unswerving fidelity to the cardi nal principles of Amir can liberty aud of the American Constitution, in the name of that liberty and Constitution, sir, we earnestly re quest your acceptance of this nomination; reverently commending our beloveJ country, and you, its Chief Magistrate. with all its brave sons who, on sea and laud, are faithful ly defending the good old American cause of equal right*, to the blessiup of Almighty Cod. We are, sir, respectlully. Your friends and fellow citizen*, WILLIAM DFNNlSnN, Ohio, Clislrmsu. JOslAU H. DRUMMOND. Msiui* THOMAS L. 8AW-VS.Hr New Hampshire. liHADLKV BARLOW, Vermont. A. it.

The disaster to the 2d Corps. We take the lollowiug extract from the re port of the New York Tribune's correspond ent of the Ute disaster to the 2d corps: It is perhaps certain that Gen.Harlow’s Div ision was first (track, that at some points the line was btruck from the rear, at others front the front—at ail unexpectedly and disastrous ly. It was the work of au instant. scarcely any resistance was made—there was no lime foi it. Gibbons's staff were eating dinner a fourth of a mile in rear of their advance, and heard no fighting; were confounded at sight of men running. These they rallied into line, but the enemy came no farther. Those that did not run, some of the best troops in the ar my, were captured by regiments. The 1st brigade (Pierce’s) suffered most, and without firing a shot, yet this brigade lias been the pride of the corps. homebody lias blundered, else such soldiers as the 15th, 10th, and 20th Massachusetts, 7th Michigan, loth Maiue,42d and 82dN'tiw York, aud 57 th Wisconsin would have made for themselves an opportunity for fighting. It was the 7ih Michigan and 10-h Massachusetts that volunteered to cross to Fredericksburg in boats under a severe lira a \ :r and a half ago, which they did so perilously and so brave ly. Some of these regiments were captured, bodily, viz: the lOtli aud 15th Massachusetts, and the 42d and 82d New York. The brigade’ has lost live commanders and other officers, and rank and tile in proportion, during the campaign. Commanding it have been Gen. Alexander Webb, wounded at Spe ttjlvaiii and Cols, ila-k. II and McKean, killed at Cold Harbor. The division probably lost a thous and prisoners yesterday, ami Mott.s aud Har low's together as many. lieside these is the lo-s ol lour guns, McKuiglit stood by them and his colors till a ltebel Hag flaunted beside bis own. and there was but one man with him.

I 3TJoshua Coffin, Esq., the historian ofNew I bury, died suddenly on Thursday night, at the age of seventy-three years. He was a most in telligent and diligent antiquarian, universally I honored aad esteemed. £5TA California correspondent of the Rock land Gaiette thus speaks of the wants of Cali fornia: “What California needs most to-day, is rain.—What she wants to-morrow in tecertly-fve thousand females; which would equal the male population, according to the last census.” -JTQuite an excitement prevails at the Kittery Navy \ ard and vicinity in consequence of sev eral cases of severe sickness, supposed to have been occasioned by a contagious disease on board j the steamer He Soto. The steamer has been or dered to quarantine grounds. A few days since a dunner called on a j young gentleman and presented him a bill.when he was somewhat taken aback by the gent taking I him aside and blandly saying : “My dear sir, call next Thursday, and I’ll tell you when to call again.” Z1TThe London Times says, “A general like Grant if unsparingly supported by govern ment, must succeed in making numbers tell. On the terms which he has hitherto accepted he can probably get to Richmond, and possibly take the city, too.” QrTlie Springfield Republican says a foolish conscript in Ualton, Mass., cut off the index finger of his right hand after he was drafted, supposing he would be exempted for it. But the game didn’t work. \\ hen he came to visit the board of enrollment he was accepted and sent to camp. far The Argus of Wednesday, had a long leader on “Church Politics.” Our neighbor seems to gravitate towards Episcopacy and Catholicism, not liecause he finds superior piety there but less politics. He evidently would pre fer a church, if he could find it, that takes high and independent ground, having nothing to do with either politics or religion. O" (vov. Seymour, of New York, is very much dissatisfied with the announcement of the Grand Jury that they deem it inexpedient to ex amine into the subject of the seiiure of the World and the Journal qf Commerce. He says that as the jury have refused to do their duty, I the matter of the seiiure should at once be j brought before some proper magistrate. ZW Kev. Dr. Joseph P. Thompson, of the Broadway Tabernacle chursh, New York, hav ing preached a sermon on Christian Manhood, called upon the church to furnish means for sc ouring volunteers to represent them in the field. By Monday morning some SCOOO were raised, I and it was determined to endeavor to raise money enough to send twenty-five men to W_1 •_ EyThe selection of Electors st large by the State Convention was a very fortunateone. Mr. Brown, of this city, is a man well-anown jin the state, proverbial for his public spirit, his enterprise, his go-uheail qualities, and his ster ling devotion to the country. Mr. Stetson, of ltainariscotta, is one of the first men in his section The selection of these gentleman was perfectly | unanimous. Tif~A sad and rather singular accident oc~ I currwl at Calais on Sunday last. Mr. and Mrs. Samuel l»yer, an aged couple of that city, were riding home from church after the close of the morning service, when on descending a hill part , of the harness gave way, bringing the carriage in contact with the horse, causing him to kick in such a manner and with such force that his feet went through the dasher, breaking a leg of each of the parties named. jyjoseph A. Scoville, the American corree poudent of the London Herald, and a most ma lignant rsviler of his own country, died in New York on Saturday. He was at one time private secretary to John C. Calhoun, and subsequently edited a flash comic weekly in New York. Hu also acted as theatrical agent for Lola Montes a short time, whioh terminated in hia being dis missed with a cowhiding administered by the irate Countess. jyAt a special meeting of the school com mittee of Providence, on motion of Prof. Chase, the hours of instruction at the High School in that city were,'luring the remainder of the term, to be from 8 o'clock until 1. Doctor Arming ton moved that the same privi/eye be extended to all the other schools, which motion was lost by a decided vots. The privilege of remaining five consecutive hours in school was too much for the youuger children to expect, notwithstan ding it was advocated by a physician. py The special committee appointed by tha New Hampshire Legislature, on the removal of the State Capital from Concord to Manchester, made majority and minority reports on Tues day. The former recommends that the capital remain there, ant that the city of Concord lay out a new street south of the common and con tribute 8130,000 for improvements of the pres ent building. The minority report advocates the removal of the capital to Manchester, if her eitiians will raise $330,000 fur a new State House. '_y The National Intelligencer says it has been decided, after mature deliberation, that tor the present season, whisky shall'be added to the rations of our soldiers in the field duriug active ojierations. The use of whisky in the army, in the opinion of good judges, has beeu the cause of more defeats and destruction of human life than all other causes combined. Its tendency in any quantity, is to lessen rather than increase the power of the army. So long as it is used, its abuse may be looked for as au inevitable r*. suit. If the use of it in the army of Gen. Grant proves an exception the country will be fortunate indeed. SPECIAL NOTICES. A Card.
