Life iu Richmond and Petersburg. The habits, customs, manners, the mode of doing business, the amusements and the gen eral aspect of strains in these famous cities, are somewhat unique and interesting at this time. Since Wilson cut the Danville road, an order has been issued forbidding the use of the road both north aud south of the intersected portion, and a meeting of the stockholders has been called in relation to it. The following notice appears in the Richmond pnpeis: Oxr, Hcrdbed Able-bodied Men Want ed.—Four hundred dollars a mouth and hoard will be paid lor hands to work on the repairs of the Ricunoud aud Danville Railroad. Ap ply to eitUer of the station agents along the line, or to H. Harter, Railroad oliice, Rich mond. AU the supplies that formerly came by way of the Weldon road ate now forced to te drawn a distance of 30 miles on wagons, ai d the rebel troops are kt pt on one-third rations. Their principal food is ha on, one third of a pound to each man daily. Tnere is much trouble in their camps. The following is a specimen of a young man of extraordinary desires, who wishes to change his mode of life: I, the undersigned, do oiler myself, with $50, 000, a candidate for the matrimonial service, and hope all refined aud accomplished young ladies will not tuink I am too forward, or have forgolteu the laws and rules of etiquette. 1 am just 17; my hair a beauulul color: my height about five feet. Any persou or per sons wiahing to correspond wilu me, willed dress Box 630, Petersburg P. O. The papers are full of advertisements of run away slaves, aud greal rewards ottered for their arrest and imprisonment, so that the own ers can get them again. Auction sales of ne groes are frequent, and prices range high—in confederate scrip. The following notice will show in what estimation their own mouey is holden by railroad managers: Office South-Side Railuoad Compart, Petersburg, July 1, ItjOJ. On and after this instant the tare of passen gers aud freight on this railroad will he receiv ed in the present currency only at one-third its value, aud in all cases the pet-on paying will make the exact change. R. F. Jackson, Treasurer. ^oru meal seems. irom the following adver tisement, to be In great demand: Corn Meal.—On account of the liberal patronage we have received from our frieuds the past week, we will be able to supply one hundred and sixty bushels of corn meal at $42 per bushel. J. M. Ve.naiu.k & Co. Amusements at Petersburg are now at an •ud by order of the government. All the males attached to the theatre are conscripted and sent to the rifle pits iu front of the doomed city. The “charming Katie,'' is a very patri otic yonng woman, and hopes a brighter day will yet dawn upon her theatrical career. We give her last card, which shows the state of so ciety in Petersburg. They were Addling and dancing in high glee till Graut and his hosts came and surrounded them. What a change came over the spirit of their dreams ! But hear Katie; Photuix Hail—Extraordinary Attraction.— Positively the last night of Katie Estelle. The Management regrets that during the disturb ed condition of our country she is compelled to close her theatre. The advance of'the en emy on Petersburg renders it necessary that all the gentlemen couuected with her compa ny should 110 longer seek to auiuse U«r citizens, but that they should light for their “altars amt their Ares.” Sue trust# that they will appre ciate this act. wnich has cost tier a vast amount of money, but which she thinks will be ampiy repaid by the consideration that she has given her means to support her beloved country. Iu taking her leave of them, she cannot but pray, with the remitted hearts of her countrymen, that God will give us a speedy, a permanent, and an honorable peace; ami that it will be her privilege to reluru to Petersburg when it shall be freed from the footsteps of the oppres sor. Katie Estei.i.e. Thomas Brooks ad vet Uses a lost pig. and of fers a reward of twenty dollars for his recov ery. The pig has a white face and white feet, the other part of the body being a coal black. He is about six weeks old. ami must tie a sin gularly looking animal. Mr. Brooks, do doubt, lias the sy mpathy of ail the Confederacy for the loss of his pig. The question most olten asked, "Well, have they took your niggers?” The reply is gene rally in the affirm stive, and these d alers in humin flesh and blood sy mpathise with each other. Great fear is expressed that the North will conquer the South, ami negroes placed in charge of plantations, while their masters take the places of their former slaves iu the Held. That would indeed be a sad humiliation for these cbivalric planters. The truth is, they are made to believe almost anything if the \ ankecs couquer them, and hence their des perate struggles. It is a remarkable fact that a large portion of the whites who live iu the vicinity of these cities and in more retired places, use similar language to the negroes. One writer who haslong lived there says,“One can scarcely distinguish the difference iu the language ol the lower class of planters from that used by their slaves. The reason is that tbeir only companions are negroes. “Yes,” these poor planters will say, when asked if their slaves have escaped, “they are clean done gone. I had a right smart of ’em for while, but they soon Yanked ’em all.” “What, is Bessie gone too!” “Yes sir, she went dee fust oue.” fciucli questions and an swers this writer has occasionally beard. The truth is, negro slavery has a terrible influence upqu the slaveholders themselves, and entirely ■tops the progress of civilization in many mas- | ters. Aud Us effects upon the children are ten-fold worse. Jefferson understood it per fectly well, and long ago gave his opinion to 1 tt» world. Children brought up iu slavery aud having slaves to wale upon them, are most miserably educated to live under a republican govern ment like ours. They are taught in early life to domineer over human beings, and in man hood these lessons are not forgotten. They feel as if they were “born to command,” and their education leads directly to strengthen such sentlni nt« and foster such feelings. This influence of slavery upon the young of both sexes is one of its worst features. No wonder t’ne good Wesley declared it to be the “sum of all villanies.” Annual Examination at Gorham Seminary. The annual examination at this institution took place on Wednesday and Thursday of the present week. The term, and indeed the year, now closing has been remarkably suc cessful. The examination proved very satisfactory, generally, and gave conclusive evideuce of the fidelity of teachers and the good conduct and studious habits of the pupils. It was our privilege to be present a few hours the last day, and to witness the examination and drill of jseverat of the classes. Were it not invidious to particularize we should speak iu special praise of the classes of young ladies, both In Cicero—which was prompt, accurate and appreciative—and in Horace. The large class of young ladies iu Botany acquitted it self with much credit. Of other classes we heard a good report. The performance of Miss Grace Emerson, of Depere, Wis., on the piano, for a young lady of fourteen, was really meritorious— grace full indeed. The essays to which wc had the pleasure of listening were of a high order. In the forenoon three young ladies, of thu Noimal cla-s, whose names we do not remember, read essays which would average full as well as ihose.recited with ati the “pomp and circum stance” of a college commencement, while an essay in the afternoon, by Miss Emina C. Smith of Gorham, of the graduating class— the only one ot the class that wc heard— would take high rank as a thoughtful, well studied lilcraiy paper in almost any circle. i'iieud who remained alter wc left, informs us hat an essay by Mis- Anna Small, and the valedictory by MbsC. B. Andrews, were sen I -idle and patriotic compositions, aud deliver ed in a creditable manner. We are indebted to the same source for the iollowiug, relating to matteis that occurred after we left the exhibition hall: The class in Rhetoric, under the direction of Mis* .Speed, passed a.satisfactory cxainiua lion. Aluiough giving tho substance of the text book, it was iu tUeir own winds, thus demonstrating their thorough acquaintance with the subject. Indeed the entire class seemed quite at home iu this department. We were not present at the examination of the class in Ratter's Analogy, hut learn it was entirely satisfactory. The examination ol the class iu German wa* conducted hv Mist Lord, daughter of our brother of the Christian Mirror, and was doubtless satisfactory, the rendering into Eng lish being prompt, and we may fairly presume sufficient!.. accurate, a* uo corrections wen made. Tire class in Gymuics, numbering about 1 forty, male and female, under the instruction ! of Mr. Bradford, of this city, although iu in trodneiug them he said they had not proceed ed far in the exercises, showed a degree ol skill iu the various movements, especially in tbe use of the dumb balls audatath. that some of our military companies might well emulate. Of the value ol these exercises—particularly luring the uour* of study—there can Ins no piestion; and it may Ire hoped the practice in -drools of all grade* w ill become uuiversnl. As aanouuced, Rev. Dr. A Jane-, chaplain o the ulh Maine, delivered an able and patriotic iddress in the evening, in the Congregational Church. which was well IJiled. The Dr. de : scribed tbe sudden and marve'luus changes of the day, referring in felicitous terms to the magical ring and the lamp of Allodia, by which lost treasures were found and base coin turned to gold. He ai.-o described with singu lar aptness the wonderful difference in the condition between the North and .South, es liecially in the matter of education; gave very sensible and eouud advice to the young ladies in reference to the part they should bear m the great struggle now going on, and com mended the women of tbe laud for u lut they were doing and bail done in behalf of the sol diers; rebuked iu tilting term* tbe indiffer ence, not to «av open opposition, of inanv at tbe North to the elf rts to cruntt the rebellh n; ■bowed clearly the true basis of government; quoting the language of that venerable *age. •losiah Quincy, who ha- but recently passed from eaith. that—“human happiness lias no perfect security but freedom: freedom none hut virtue; virtue none but knowledge; and □either freedom nor virtue nor knowledge ha any sign or immortal hope except iu the prin ciples of the Christian faith, ami in tbe emo tions of the Christian religion.’" We should he glad to give a fuller synopsis of tills ex cellent address did our limits permit. Judge Pierce presented the diplomas to tin graduating classes, as the organ of the Trus tees, accompanied by a tew excellent remark-. The graduating Normal class consists of the following young ladies: K. \V. Thompson, St. Stephens, X. B.; Eliza McDonald, Portland: A.K. Dolt, Milton, X. ii.; A. A. L >rd. Lowell ! The College class: Emma C. Smith, Gorham; ' C. B. Andrews, Paris Hill; 11. E. Clarke, Wa terville; Anus Small, Windham. An agreeable lealure of the occasion wa* . the presence of several of the officers of tlie Maine Fifth, the same that graced the occa -ion of our Di-trict. They were happily in tinduced by Dr. Adam*, the chaplain. Three of the live (lag- taken by the Regiment from the rebels were also dl-oiaved. The board of Instruction at this institution is well made up. The teachers take high rank, and receive the most generous com meudaticu from the board of Trustee*, while their works—the progress of the pupils iu the school—allie d the best evidence of their fideli ty and worth. Their names will be found in the Catalogue of the Seminary. W lib the term now closing also closes the services of Mr. Wit tin, the Principal. He has occupied the position three years, having charge of the school and large boarding house, and has proved himself a most indefa tigable, efficient aud successful manager of the interests—educational and financial—o! the institution, and he leaves at his own in stance, on account of Impaired health, and with the regret of every member of the board of Trustees, with whom he lias never had the slightest difference during his entire admiuis tratiou. The Pirate Florida. Acting Master Gibbs, of the gun-boat l’u nola, was captured on board the steamer Kiectric Spark by the Florida and subse quently paroled. He makes the following statement touching the arrangement and con ; ditiou of the Florida: I “.She carries four rifled sixty-eight pound I ers—,s inch—in broadside—abaft the inaiu I '»»»t, one hundred aud twenty pound ril e in | pivot, and four small rides in broadside lor , ward, lu addition to this formidable battery, she has one gun not raouuted, lying on the I starboard side of the eugiue loom hatch.— Mr. Gibbs could not ascertain its calibre, as | it was covered with a tarpaulin. Sue lias a | crew of about two hundred iat-u, woo looked dirty and undiscipliued, and M irris apolo j giz-d for the appearance of the ship and ! said they had been very busy for tile past lew days. Her chief Kugi.ieor is coudiied to ills roum on account of injuries received by fall ing down a hatchway, and she is short of en gineers; so much so that it would lie difficult to run the Kiectric ftpark: but he may run both vessels over to II -rinuda or Nassau, and leave bis prize outside while lie goes jn witli the Florida and procures some engineers tin her. Tbs K -oirie Spark steams, in her pret ent trim, hut seven knots, which is owing to liur being by the hea i. No d mbt but Morris will use her as a louder, at least until her coal —oue hundred aud twenty lous—gives out. or he may attempt to run her into Wilming ton with her cargo.*' For tlie beuetll of any who have, not seen a description of the Florida—,9 is well kuowu to our uaval officers—ilie Philadel phia I’ress states that she is barque-rigged, screw propeller, is painted black, and sits quite low in the water. Noble Lbtiku We ask particular atten tion to the letter on the first page, giving an educated aud friendly EugiUbmau’s views of our great struggle, Its object and Its probable results. The writer, we are told, is a clergy man of the New Jerusalem [Swedenborgian] Church. His letter is alike creditable to his head aud his he*rt; and w« (hank him lor it. H .. . ., .mm* .... - The Verdict in the Belrail Bridge Catas trophe. It is often the case, if not generally, that a coroner’s investigation of the cause of a rail road or steamboat accident, in which a num ber of lives are lost, is a mere faree. The owners or managers of the hue of steamboats, or oi the railroad, having the means of em ploying able counsel, can have the whole thiug Used up to their minds, and the blame placed upon the shoulder- of some irresponsi ble parties. The verdict of the coroner’s jury, euipan nelled to investigate the cause of the accident at the bridge at Bekeil, near Montreal, find the engine driver, Burney, mainly in fault, on which the eiKlor of the Montreal Witness makes the following inquiries: The driver, Barney, is committed to pris on lor “ gross carelessness,” but were there uo other instances of gross carelessness? Was it not gross carelessness on the part of the engineer of the road, who has charge of it from one end to the other, to permit uu al most, 11 not quite, systematic disregard of its rule No. 34, requirmg trains to stop belore crossing the bridge ? Was u not gro-s carelessness for the Gen eral Manager of the Company lobe Ignorant lor years of thin almost uniform violation ot its rules? ll he had devoted to ascertaining the actual management of the road, part of the time spent about Parliament, could eucb an accident have occurred ? Was there not gross carelessness somewhere in sending out suddenly a man unacquainted with the load to drive a heavy train of box cars. loaded with nearly '>00 human beings, and that with only one brakeman? We have no objection to the committal of Burney to await his trial, lor every de-truction of life should be most carelully inquired into, and punished so far as parties aie guilty; but if gross carelessness lie a sutlicicut cause for commitment, there are, we tkfuk, many who should bear Burucy company. The verdict of the jury, alter the most pa tientand protracted investigation (as they de clare). divides the responsibility of killing eighty or ninety persons, by the most wantou carelessness, as follows: 1. The engine-driver is found to be guilty oi gross carelessness in precipitating the train into the river. 2. Tiie Locomotive Agent at Iticlrmond of want of judgment and caution in putting a driver in charge of the traiu without ascer taining by per- uia! examination wdiether he was acquainted with the road and signals. M. The. almost uniform neglect of the Com pany’s rule to stop the train belore euteiiug on the south end of the bridge, had much to do with the accident, and the guardians of the bridge are very reprehensible for not report ing this neglect. 4. The waut of at least one additional brake-man on the train was another cause, and it was the duty of the conductor to hue provided one. It will be perceived, says the Witness, that there is no word of censure for auy of the higher otticials of the road, who could not have been ignorant of the customs of it, but, on the contrary, the blame is carefully limited to the subordinates. Letter from the Saco Sea-shore. Old Okciiajid, July 14,18H4. To the Editor of the. Pre$o Having had nothing till now to write, I have wisely held ray peace. This morning, having seen a regular curiosity, I will give you the benefit of what I saw. As a young man nam ed Sam’l I’crkin* wa- at work on the Beach yesterday afternoou, he discovered something of an imusai appearance: calling on a friend uear by, he succeeded in dlggiug au old dm/tor from the mud. It was very much rusted, and what was singular had clinging to, and iiubed ed In it all sorts of stones, shells, Ac. One pan of it had entirely rusted oft and could not b: found, ^'he evidences are that it ladougcd to a vessel wrecked oif this shore during the war of 1812. Such teem«4> be the opinion of those who are well posted. II such W the fact it is indeed a great curiosity. It excited ranch interest lit Biddeford and Aaco, and the w agon which contained it hi- the centre of attrac tion for some time. We are having a tine spell of hay-making weather, and III" farmers are gettiug good crops. Where 1 am stopping we shall get a third more tli&u last season, and of a lat supe rior quality. The public houses at the Beach arc filling up rapidly, and will he as crowded as ever, and there is no lesson why they should not be, as this is one of tlie best watering places in New England. Business of ad kinds is good. The crops are sultdrlng much from want of raia, and if we do not get some soon, will be very short indeed. We got a slight shower yesterday, but it hardly laid the dust.

Ou the 5th the march was resumed, encoun tering the eiicmy neat Viuiug Station, w lieu they were driven in hot haste across the river. On the 8th the rebel army was on one side of the river, while ours was ou the other. Later dispatches announce our army across the river, taking a large number of prisoners. Chattanooga, July u.
