Represented in the Army. Wealthy men of New York, who are unlit for military duty, either from age or other physical disability, and are not liable' to a draft, arc giving an exhibition of tiieir patriotism, and aiding the government in its hour of need, by being represented in the army by able bodied soldiers of their own procui lug. More than 1000 men have already been sent into lit? army from that city, each representing a man whose money secures his services to the gov ernment. The Provost Marshall General when informed of the wishes of these gentlemen, im mediately issued the following circular:— Wak Dki-aktmknt, ) Provost Marshal's Gen.’s Office, [ Watimngton, D. C\, Jvne 'M, 1804. ) Circular No. £>. Persons not fit for military duty, and not li able to draft, from age or other causes have expressed a desire to he personally represent ed in the Army. In additiou to the contribu tions they have made in the way of bounties, they propose to procure at their own expense, and present for enlistment, recruits to repre sent them in the service. Such practical pat riotism is worthy ot special commendation and encouragement. Provost Marshals, and all other officers acting under this Bureau,are ordared to furnish all tba facilities in their power to enlist aud muster promptly the ac ceptable representative recruits presented, in accordance with the design herein set forth. The name of the person whom the recruit represents will be uoted on the enlistment and descriptive roll of the recruit, and will he carried forward from those papers to the offi cial records which form his military history. Suitable prepared certificates of this perso nal representation in the service will be for warded from this office to be filled out and is sued by Provost Marshals to the persons who put iu representative recruits. James B. Fat, Provost Marshal General. A call will undoubtedly be made for 300,000 or 300,000 more men, of which Maine stauda ready to raise her proportion, at she always has done, promptly and unrepiningly. The question that most interests our people is, how shall they bo raised? There Is a deep-rooted and insurmountable prejudice everywhere iu in this country against a draft. It has not thus far succeeded well in this State, and its history in this State is very nearly its history iu every other State where it has been attempted. Let, then, the volunteer system l»e tried to its full ett extent before resorting to a draft. We do not question the justice or the right of the government to demand of any man ills person al services to aid, in any manner that its cm ergencies may require, iu sustaining its au thority aud putting down the rebellion. Every man owes it to his government, when the dag ger is pointed at her heart, to rush to the res cue and at any and all hazards stand between her aud those who seek her destruction, but as every man is not required to go into active service, the question as to who shall go may be settled by one of two ways; by lot or by (vol untary consent. By voluntary conseut if the requisite number can thus be obtained; by lot if otherwise. The practical question as It is soon to be presented to the people of this aud other States is, how can the number of men required to put down the rebellion be raised, ao as to secure the hearty action of the men raised, and equalize, as nearly as may be, the burden. There are men in this city who have, since the commencement of the war, and iu consequence of the war, made from $10,000 to $100,000 a year. Duriug all this time men who are under no more obligations to sustain the government than they, have left families, poorly provided for, and in some Instances, we fear in many instances, to suffer on account of their absence. Here is an inequality that should, as far as circumstances will permit, be remedied. This can he done to a certain ex tent, by men of wealth beiog personally repre tented in the army. The goverment has been liberal in iu bounties and wages paid to men who have entered its service—more so than any other government under heaven has ever thought of being, but the preseut prices of all the necessaries of life allow but little margin for the man wito receives but fclC a month, al though he may have had paid to him liberal bounties on entering the service. One of the means of raising men, and one that will re dound to the honor of the man who thus raises his representative man when the history of this rebellion shall he faithfully written, is for men of wealth to secure each a man to take the place in the army that they themselves are not fitted for by reason of age, disease or any oth er cause, and pay them liberally, and agree that their wives and children, if they have any, shall be provided with the comforts of life in their absence or in case they should fall in bat tle or by disease. Men are wanted—determ ined, brave, unflinching men, together with the means of supplying them with amuuiliou. provisions, hospital stores, «fco. Give General Grant these iu numbers and quantity equal to the importance of the undertaking, and noth ing but the interposition of Divine Providence cau preveut hitn and his brave associatc-s from taking Petersburg and Richmond and subdu ing the rebellion, the persistency and endur ance of which has been beyond the compre hension of any one. We are now contending for a principle, involved in the establishment of this government on the broad basis of uni versal freedom. The eyes of the world are upon us, and the good and true of all nations are praying for our success. Let the President and the Army be sustained to the fullest ex tent necessary to briug the war to a speedy close. _ _ _ Strawberry Festival and Fair. Gonn\m, June 30, 1*04. To the Editor of the Press:—It is quite common for traveling correspondents t° write of themselves, inform their dear reud cm when they arrived at their place of desti j nation, how they were conveyed over the tace of the earth and water, whether by rail, steamboat or old mail stage coach, what acci dents happened on the way and the great perils passed through; hut I must pass by ail ! these, and write of other matters; for I be lieve the public don’t care a fig about such thirurs Imtipvpr tnnrh tint writer I11&V think of himself aud what happened to his person. I will say, however, that Conductor Cousius diJn’t run off the track, hut landed us safely at Gorham Depot in due season; and he did it too, with a smiling face. It is pleasant to see smiles instead of irowns, at auy time. Good nature helps one along in this world, amazingly. Tbi9 beautiful old town of Gorham was one of the seven towns granted to the kiarra gansett soldiers by the General Court in 1732. When a division of these towns was made among the original grantees, tills town was assigned to John Gorham and 11‘J others, aud then called Narragausett. It was incorporat ed by the name of Gorham, in Oct. 1774. It will he seen by the above, that almost a cent ury has passed since its incorporation, and what changes have passed since that time! Hut I will not stop to moralize or speculate. I obtained the above facts by reading the record of them on a stone post standing near the church. The citizens did well iu erecting such a post, aud making such an en during record. But the reader may ask what has aii this to do with the Strawberry Festival? Not much I confess, and yet historical facts are always interesting. But to the Festival and Fair which was opeued yesterday aitcrnoon.al the academy that stands on the hill and has stood there a good many years. The prospect from the hill is exceedingly beautiful. The “For est City,” llie oceau, the “observatory,” on Munjoy, which, iu my biybooi, was the “ob s$ved of all observers,” and esteemed a very big liking, the hack country for several miles, with its orchards, Helds, farm houses aud patches of woodland—all make up a line pan orama, which cannot fail to delight a lover of ! nature. The Festival was well attended yes terday, and the tableaux last evening drew a largo crowd to w itness them. Early this morning the ladies began lo weml their way up the hill, blaring flowers and feeling as if they were doing something for the beneilt of the so'diers, who are expos ing themselves in the defence of their coun try and their homes. 1 followed these fair pioneers, and soon entered the building. The first thing that attracted my attention (after the ladies) was a good sized couch shell fast ened to a pillar, and the following letters printed on it— O-U-T. I did not at first lake, hut it soon got through my hair without a surgical operation. Its meaning is shell out. A very good motto to stare one in the face as soon as he enters. Yes, “shell owl” has been the cry for a long time; and the loyal people have “shelled out” more generously lhau ever known beiore. They mean to help thoae who are fighting for their country, and they do it as no oilier people ever did. And the wo men—God bless them ! arc first and foremost in the oncid work. The tables above and be low are loaded with good things to cat and fancy articles for talc, all got up in mest ad mirable style. Here is the “Angler’s Nook,” where many drop there hook and catch a prize. The ice cream saloon and the l’bst Oitice are fitted up very tastelully, and all the decorations are excellent. They wi re de signed by Edward S, Morse, a very fine artist of this village, who has done much to en hance the interest of this exhibition for the beuellt of the Army Christian Commission. Among oilier curiosities is a continental cur rency eight dollar bill, priuted in 1777 by Hall and Sellers, and authorizedpy Congress in July of the same year, The number is 2550, its dimensions 2 1 4 by 4 inches, and en graved on thick, coarse, dingy paper. Within an engraved circle is the picture of a harp, and printed about it tbe following Latin words: “ilojorn minorOms consonant,'' which means, 1 suppose, “the gealer harmon izes with the less,” as the largo strings of the harp harmonize with the little ones, and that makes the “ Music of the Uniou” with which we are now trying to make the rascally rebels “keep step,” and 1 trust we shall succeed iu that glorious enterprise. Tbe greatest curi osity ou exhibition, are some fancy articles ' made out of meat bones by Capt. Wentworth while he was in Libby Prison. They were i indeed peaulilui and highly Uuished, and ad j mirably designed. Oue piece is a kind of watch key or seal, with ibe words “Home, sweet home” on one side,and “Libby Prison” ou the other, finely eatved and raised on the bone, lie must have labored a loug time to prt duce sucli finely wrought articles, but iu so doing be beguiled tliu weary days of bis prison life. When I think of Libby Prison, uiv blood boils—but I forbear. Iu oue corner of the room is a large shoe, covered all over with little dulls, and a little girl sitting iu It, dressed in the costume of an old wotnau, and ready to barter her little ba bies for postage currency. And 1 believe she is doing a snug little business lor oue so young. Shu looks perfectly good ualured aud the expression of her face shows that her heart beats with patriotic pulsations. The rooms are decorated with llcgs of dif fereut nationalties, and—with the ladies tor, who are here, there and everywhere, smiling and waiting upon their gctleious customers. And permit me to say, tn passant, t rey are noble hearted, full of patriotism, and good looking into the bargain. I have read of a land flowing with milk aud honey, but this flows with cream,rich, fresh, delicious cream, and strawberries by the cartload. Aud such coffee! Thanks, a thousand thanks to that ; good generous woman who poured it out. In fact everything eatable or drinkable was of the very best kind. Auil how industriously have the lioiham ladies worked for the bene fit of the soldiers. There is a deep current of patriotic leeliug running through the coun try. The concert Thursday evening was most excellent and the church was crowded in every nook and corner. Another person could not have been squeezed in. Mr. Ed wards of ibis city presided at the piano-forte, not piano, according to the old music teacher, Lowell Muon, who always chided his pupils when they called that instrument by such a name. And who of this generation dares to dispute with that old master on such a ques- j tlon? But no matter. Miss Usher of Hoi- i iis and Miss Cammett of this city mingled their voiees in |ierfect harmony. We all ’ know Miss Cammett’s highly cultivated mu- : steal powers and her great skill in execution. And let me add, Mis9 Usher’s voice is a mez zo soprano of great sweetness and flexibility. , Messrs. Shaw and Morgan lever sang better, I and Mr. Edward’s playing proved that lie uu- | derslands music to he, as it is, one of the ex act sciences. Casta Diva was the gem of the evening as it always is when rendered as the author in- I tended it to be. And Miss Cammett was quite up to that standard. Itev. Dr. Adams, recently returned from a three years service in the army, made some eloquent remarks be- | fore the concert commenced in relation to the Christian Commission, the amount of good it had done, aud is doing, which were well re ceived. There was much patriotic etitliusi- I asm in the congregation, and the good people of Gorham, ladies and all, are exceedingly anxious tq see the soldiers well cared for, and the rebellion crushed out—a spectacle which we hope will gladden their eyc9 ere many months shall have pasted. The result of this Festival will probably foot up more than a thousand dollars for the Christain Commission. Those who have so liberally spent their time aud money in get ting up tins iair and catrying it through will have their reward. Well done Gorham! May other towns follow thu example aud do as well. A vote of hearty thanks to the sing ers was passed, for they gave their valuable aid to this cause. The District Convention. A writer in the Biddeford Union, alluding to tlie approaching District Convention to nominate candidates for Congress and Elector, says: "The convention has been called at one of the most unfavorable seasons of the year for farmers, but they must consider ail the more of the importance of their attendance, and not nll/Atcr anAlhns nlaaa naniila f r\ taL-n thu advantage of their absence and gain a triumph of favoritism over patriotism." This same luggestiou iu relation to time haa been made elsewhere, and in a way to create the impression that gentlemen not iu sympa thy with the farming interests, managed to have the convention early so that the farmers could not couveuieutly he represented. Now the facts are these: when the District Com mittee catne together to fix the time for the meeting of the Convention, there were five present. Two different days were proposed, the doth of Juue and the Oth of August A vote was takeu, and three members voted for the early day and two voted for the Oth of August. Those voting for June :$0lh were ail from the farming towus—two of them from York county and the other from New Glou cester—while the two who favored the later day were of this city—one of them acting as proxy for Judge Waterman. A compromise was made on the 7tb of July, and the cai! is sued accordingly. The reasons urged by tbo country members of the committee for an early convention was the saving oi time, as the same primary meeting or caucus could cboose delegates to both Slate and District Conventions, and thus save the trouble of getting together twice to perform tills labor. It was urged by mem bers from the farming towns that, to have the Convention early iu August, would require caucuses at the very busiest season of the year for farmers, when lew of them would at tend ilia primary meetings, and such meetings would be left too much to the control of mere politicians, and those having nothing else to engage their attention. It was further urged that, as the 4tb of July week Is a broken week, a convention at that time would be more generally attended than at a later day, and also that farmers could more convenient 1 ly leave home at the beginning of the haying season, when many of them visit the city for supplies, than iu the midst of the haying sea son or the grain harvest. Such are the facts, and candid men will appreciate them. The new Secretary of the Treaaury. The telegraph yesterday brought the an nouncement that Hou. William Pitt Fes kKXDKM, of this city, had been appointed and promptly confirmed as Secretary of the Treas ury, iu place of Mr. Chase resigned. This ap I pointuient will, we have no doubt, be received with general favor by the country, and go a great way to restore the feeling that waa dis turbed by the announcement of Mr. Chase'a i resignation. Mr. Fessenden has served with signal abili ty as Chairman of the Senate Committee of Finance—one of the most important positions : in the Government, especially in a season of financial ditbculties like the present. Ills la bors as the Chairman of that Committee have been admirably calculated to discluliue him fur the responsible station to which bo has been elevated. Mr. Fessenden is a cool, clear-beaded, dis creet man, who comprehends intricate prob j lemt with a promptness amounting almost to intuition, and withal is oue of the best law yers in the country. As Secretary of the Treasury we predict for him an enviable rep utation, and feel assured that the financial in terests of the Government will be cared for with a degree of wisdom uot ofteu brought to bear in that Department. Humored Heavy Du'alcatiom.-Rumors have been in circulationTor some weeks to the (Diet that ail was not right in the Custom House in this city—that there was a very con siderable deficit in somebody’s accounts, ruu ; niug back for months and amouuliiig to some $ Hi .000 in gold—that the Deputy Collector is absent in the British provinces, ostensibly “for I bis health,” dee., Ac. The matter is being in vestigated, and the tacts doubtless will soon lie given to the public officially. |Argu» Fri i d*y. The above paragraph took us by surprise, lor we bad beard no such rumor as It refers to; but we have takeu pains to inquire into the facts and find, that so far as the administration ol tiie office under its preseut head is con cerned, there is not a particlo of ground for any such paragraph. More than this—the Deputy Collector—Mr. Bird, has not been absent from his post a single day since the present Collector lias filled the office, aud be is now daily attending to bis official duties. So much is proper to rebut the irnpressiou created by the Argus—we hope not intention ally—that the preseut Collector is a defau!ter to the Government. It is true that sonu of the accouuts during the administration of the late Collector— whose suddeu death so recently cast a deep gloom over our community—show a degree of looseness and irregularity, and,an apparent deficit of considerable amount, though not so large by thousands as stated in the Ar gus. Whether this apparent deficiency will I rove to be a real one, Is the very question ri in doing to be showu, and to iuvestigate this point the representatives of the late Collector are making the most vigorous efforts, that they may know whether the discrepancy is j the result of eirors iu lhc»accouuts or of ac tual misuse of funds. They are responsible men, and the Government cannot suffer. It should be staled that facta are not want ing to show that, if money was misused, it , could not have been with the knowledge, uor i for the benefit of the late lamented Collector, aud there is not room for the slightest suspi cion to attach to his official integrity, than whom a more honest and incorruptible man lias seldom filled an official position. HT'fhe gas emupanita in Boston have in creased their rates. We would suggest that corporations should not be too swift to turn the screws upon the publio while they are able to l declare fat semi-annual dividends. M—r.- ."ni. witti Prtmth* Whig amI Courier.

SSTdifty-seven millions of dollars have been exported from New York for the year ending July 1,18(54, mainly to pay for articles of lux ry with which our people could dispeuse as well as not. 3TA female infant was found in the yard of S. A. Hubbard, of North Berwick, ou Friday evening of last week. The selectmen have offered 850 reward for the detection of the per son leaving it there. 13?"At the Congressional Convention at Au burn, on Thursday, Charles J. Talbot, Esq., of Wilton, received the unanimous vote of Frank lin county, but the delegation afterwards pledged their undivided support to Mr. Per ham. ZS The ejection of a colored woman from a railroad car in New York, has been decided by , vuiuuusBiuiici Acum iu w 1% urmu ui lilt; peace, there being no law against colored per sona using the cars, and none to warrant the conduct of the officer. . 5f" The House Military Committee have re ported in favor of allowing Mrs. Jean Lander, born Davenport, widow of Gen. Lander, *4,750 for her husband’s services in surveying the rail road route from Puget’s Sound to the Missis sippi. -if"The Battery and Barracks at Machiasport, the Union says, are finished and ready for occu pation. Five guns are mounted, three 32 poun ders and two 25 pounders. The guns command the river above Round Islaud to a point not far above the Battery. IjT The Montreal Transcript says a great fire is raging in the woods of the neighborhood\ o the Saguenay, and threatening, unless rain falls, to sweep over thousands of miles of terri tory, and reduce it to a waste, howling wilder ness. STThe largest flour mill in the State of New York was burned on Tuesday at Minetto, Os wego county. The loss on buildings is reported to be $200,000, beside the destruction of 15,000 bushels of wheat, 1800 barrels of flour, 1800 tons of feed and 20,000 empty barrels. BTW e are told that a nice little swindle is practised by some of the charcoal venders who visit the city. They will level off the top of their loads with hard wood coal, while the balk of the load is from poplar, and other soft and spongy woods. One of them says he reckons all trees that grow leartt as hard wood ! ZST A correspondent of the Boston Journal •ays in relation to the crops in Illinois: “Winter wheat is now safe and much of it harvested. Spring wheat is filling and the next ten days will tell the story for the greater portion of the wheat harvest. Oats, gross, barley and other crops promise well. -if Travel to the W hite Mountains commen ces earlier this season than usual. There are 1 some fifty guests at the Crawford House, mostly from New York and Philadelphia. The other mountain houses are open, and there is a pros pect that they will be filled after the Fourth of July. jyThe subscription to the 10-40 bonds is still before the public, and over seventy millions have been already taken. At the present rate of premium on gold, they pay nearly ten per j rent, interest in currency, and at the conclu sion of the war, they will certainly he worth par iu gold. The Argus seems astonished that some of the shoddy friends of the administration have brought up in Fort Lafayette. It has not j been accustomed to such treatment of one's party friends. Democratic usage made defalca tions, embezzlements and frauds strictly in or der, and the faithful supporters of the prevail* ing regime were seldom troubled for such trivial pecodillos. iSTW'e intended the other day to speak a candid word in relation to the Newburyport Herald; we know it was a kind word, hut it ap , jiears to have given offense to the editor of that journal. W’e confess since reading his last ar_ tide, we are disposed t« modify the opinion we ; expressed, for he hetravs a venee.it;..,, e... .l must infernal institutions because they have had state authority, for which we were but poorly prepared. y The New York Commercial says George Henderson, of Kocklaud, Me., who has just re turned home for the first time in eight years, has been in the service since he was 14 years of age. Duriug that time he has been shot at seven times; once in tbe mouth, aud has a number of rebel bullets in his body; has lost a portion of one arm; was under Grant at the siegeof Vicks burg; has been in Kiclimoud prison fur several months, and succeeded in getting out of prison and making his escape a few days since. y The prevailing impression is that the new Military Bill offered by Mr. Smithers of Dele ware, and adopted by the House of Hepresenta tives, will become a law. It repeals the com mutation clause, but allows sixty days for vol unteering, and permits recruiting at the South to fill the quota of each district. The volun teering may be for one, two or three years, with a bounty of *'400, *300, aud *400 respectively. A draft*’!' one year will take place to fill th« deficiency at the expiration of the sixty days. The citizens of Bath are making the nec essary arrangements for a very pleasant celebra tion of the Fourth of July. In addition to tin firing of salutes aud ringing of the bells, s grand procession will parade the streets, ad dresses will he delivered on the common, aud a fine collation spread for the soldiers of Co. A and D, 3d Maiue regiment, who will he welcomed to their homes. An attractive Uoral procession will be a feature of the occasion. The music will be furnished by ihe Augusta Brass Baud. y When the Bangor Whig will indulge in a joke without embodying the spirit of falsehood, we will not complain, though the joke be at out expense. *Tlie Whig may or may not be an noyed by the “little Times” “right by its side," but we protest against its inference that we art troubled by any paper in this vicinity. There is no journal in Cortland whose success can possibly disturb our equanimity, for they either represent different ideas and interests, or they occupy distinot and separate fields, so there is no necessary conflict between them and the Cress. We can “live and let live.” jyWe are gist that our contemporary o( the Argus spurns the doctrine of the ultra peace democrats, and in opposition to the New York News and papers of that ilk, endorses the doctrine that the only compromise that can be allowed with the rebels is “an honest offer of peace upon the laying down of arms by the rebels, and their return to their constitutional obligations. Such is platform enough, broad enough, just enough, and the only one the peo ple will or ought to sanction.” If the Argus will stick to this doctrine we will never quarrel • with it. It is precisely the doctrine of Presi 1 dent Lincoln and his admiuistratioq, One might luppose from articles which have recently appeared in loyal papers in this Congressional District, that there is a great deal j of scrambling and wire pulling going on in re lation to the approaching nomination for Con gress. Such an impression, in our judgment, is entirely wrong. We have seen no indications of a jealous spirit outside of the papers; we i have heard of no log-rolling or unfairness; we are aware of no pledges or promises, and we I conti ently predict that the Convention will be 1 found remarkably harmonious, and that it will : do its work well and promptly.

Indeed, many of those frauds with whom we are la daily intt i course, and who re gard shorn .elves as perfectly healthy, are thus car rytog about the seodsof their own destruction, de posed in the luogs during some rtc.nt cold, only awaiting some future exposure to render them ecus* and uevelope tne disease of which they are the gerrne.
