Frash Water for the City. How long shall Portland be deprived of a plentiful snpply of fresh water? This is a question in which the present generation has a deep interest—a question of vital interest to the prosperity of our city. It would be a work of supererogation to enter into an elaborate argument to show how closely this matter comes home to every family, for those who need convincing on this point, when fresh wa ter is being sold for forty or fifty cents a bar rel, and when many families cannot command a sufficient supply lor the ordinary purposes ol cleanliness, would not be convinced by any powers of argument or by any facts at our command. It is welt known that in some portions of the city—many portions, we apprehend—the wells afford a quality of water of very doubt ful utility for family use when medicinally considered. The water is hard, impregnated with lime, and while unpalatable to the taste, it is scarcely more available for purposes of cleanliness than the salt water in the harbor. To say nothing, then, of the need of more wa ter for prudential reasons—in caste of fire—il U enough for our present purpose that Port land is shameluily deficient of a supply of sofl water for family use, and for mauy kinds ol manufacturing which cannot be carried or without a libera! supply of pure fresb water such as cannot now be secured in sufllcienl and steady supply to justify the outlays need ed to put them in operation. Where and hoio shall the water so much needed be obtained ? The question hoic can be answered in two ways. The city in its cor porate capacity may obtain the needful grant of power from the legislature, aud then la\ pipes, build the reservoirs, make the distribu tion and collect the water rents, the same as it would erect the works for the manufsciurt of gas, and collect the bills growing out of its consumption. In our judgment this is precisely what should be done. So important an enterprise, one ueed ed for the general benefit of the place, had bet ter be owned and managed by the city, so as to protect the customers against exorbitant charges, than to be under the control of a pri vate corporation. But if the city has not enterprise sufficient to undertake the work, or if its caution is so inordinately developed that it is afraid of be ing ruined in credit by a water-loan for the benefit of its inhabitants, then the only remain ing alternative is for individuals to form a joint-stock company and do the work. To our mind there Is no doubt of the success of the thing if once taken hold of in earnest, so great being the wants of the place in this regard, and so poor this quality of the water obtaina ble, that the people would cheerfully pay even heavy rates rather than be deprived of a good article; and we will not doubt for a moment, that so great would be the demand of the peo ple for pure fresh water, that the enterprise would prove to be no mean speculation. But trhere shall the water supply be found! Probably nine-tenths of our readers, without a moment's hesitancy, in answer to this ques tion, will say, ‘‘tiebago Lake.” No doubt am ple snpply of excellent water might be obtain ed irom that source, and we are not sufficient ly well informed to say that it is not the only source of supply suitable and available for tin purposes wanted. If no other source is at baud then Sebago Lake should be the point, for the water is a public necessity, and auother year ahould not be allowed to pass without saeing progress made towards the consummation ol so important a work. Bat It by no means follows, because Sebagc alone affords a head sufficiently high to earn the water to the top of our church spires that no other place may be made available foi the supply of our wauts. The Presumpscoi river may be reached In one-half or one-third the distance ot Scbago, and the water of that river, except as it is affected by side streams must be essentially ot the same quality as the take of wbicb it Is the outlet. We do not see why the water of that river, taken from above Saccarappa Falls, may not be available for all purposes. The only objections to water from that source, would be the quality of the water itself. If that is good, it can be obtained from there at much less expense than from Scbago Lake. Philadelphia is supplied with water forced from the Schuylkill up to the reservoir ou Fairmouat. The water at Montreal is taken trout the St. Lawrence some nine miles above the city, and carried into the reservoir ou the side of the mountain by force pumps. The Tillage of Niagara FalU, on the Canada side, is supplied with water from just above the cataract, force pumps being used that are driv en by a wheel supplied with power from a •mail side canal. Now we have an impression that the Pre •arnscot river, above Saccarappa Falls, is sul ftciently high to bring the water to this city and supply a receiving reservoir, say on the low ground near Bramball hill. From that it could be forced into a distributing reservoir on the hill, the cost of engines, pumps, Ac., being a mere traction compared with the cost of layiug pipes from Saccarappa to Sebago, and the expense of keeping them running be lug very much less than the interest on the Investment required to extend the pipes. But it is no part of our purpose to settle the best mode of securing a water supply for the city, or to decide where it shall be found; our object Is to call attention to a pressing need of the city, and simply to hint at some of the ways in which that want may be met. And We close Uti« article with the simple suggea j is i ■ ■ ■ ■ »i i -m—T I tiou, that the City Government can perform no higher or more acceptable service to the I people, than by talcing steps, perhaps through a joint committee, to procure tlia necessary ! information, with plans ami estimates, on ; which action may he based looking to the ac j complishment of the enterprise of which we have spoken. Such iutormation would bo ex j ceudingly convenient in going to the legisla tore for the necessary charter, or grant of powers. Indeed, we feel quite contldcut that . the atteulion of the City Government will be ' directed to this matter, in a more formal raan , uer, at au early day. THE VICE PRESIDENCY. Letter from Andrew Johnson, accepting the Republican Nomination. The Nashville Union publishes Andrew Johnson's acceptance of the Union nomina tion for the Vice Presidency. Mr. Johnson's letter is as follows: Nashville, Texk., July a, letH. lion. William Itennieon, Chairman, and otlt j ert, Committee oJ't the Motional l nion Con tention:— Gentlemen—Vour communication of the Uth ultimo, informing me of my nomination lor the Vice Presidency of the United States by the National Convention held at Baltimore, and enclosing a copy of the resolutions adopt ed by that body, was not received until the goth ult. A reply ou my part had been previously made to the action of the Conveniiou in pre senting my name, in a speech delivered in this city ou the evening succeeding the day of the adjournment of the Convention, in which 1 indicated my acceptance of the distinguish ed honor conferred by that body, and defined the grouuds upon which that acccptauance wa- eased, substantially saving what 1 now have to say. From the comments made upon that speech by the vai ious presses of the conn - I try to which my attention has been directed, I considered it to be regarded as a lull accept ance. in view, however, of the desire expressed | in your communication, 1 will more tally al | ludo to a few points that have heretofore been presented. My opinions ou the leading questions at present agitating and distracting the public mind, aud especially iu reference to tbe re belliou now being waged against the govern : meat and authority of the United buttes, 1 presume are generally understood. Before the Southern people assumed a bel ligerent altitude, (and repeatedly since), 1 book occasion most trankly to declare the views 1 then entertained in relation to the wicked purposes of the Southern politicians. They have since undergone but little, il any, change. Time and subsequent events have rattier continued than diminished my conQ deuce in their correctness. At the beginning of this great struggle 1 entertained the same opinion of it that 1 do uow, and In my place iu the Senate 1 denounc ed it as treason, worthy the punishment of death, and warned the government and peo ple of the impending danger. But my voice was not heard or counsel heeded until it wa« too late to avert the storm. It still continued to gather over us without molestation from the authorities at Washington, until at length it broke with al! its fury upon the country.— And now, if we would save the government from beiug overwhelmed by it, we must meet it in the true spirit of patriotism, aud hriug traitors to the puuishmeut due their crime, aud by force of arms crush out and subdue the last vestige of rebel authority in every State. 1 leit then as now, that the destruction of the government was deliberately determined upon by wicked aud designing conspirators, whose lives and fortunes were pledged tocar ry it out, and that no compromise, short of *u unconditional recognition of the independ ence of the Southern States, could have been, or could now be proposed, which they would accept. The clamor lor “ Southern rights," > as the rebel journals were pleased to desig nate their rallying cry, was not to secure their assumed rights in the Union and under the Constitution, but to disrupt the govern ment, aud establish an independent organiza tion, based upon slavery, which they could at all times control. The separation of the government has for years been the cherished purpose of the South ern leaders. Bsllled iu 18112, by ijie stern, patriotic heroism of Andrew Jackson, they sullenly acquiesced, only to mature their dia bolical sc lie rues, and await the occurrence of a more favorable opportunity to execute them. Then the pretext was the tariff, and Jackson, after foiling their schemes of nullification and disunion, with prophetic perspicuity, warned the country against the renewal of their effoi ts to dismember the government. In a letter, dat' d May 1, 1833, to the Rev. A. J. Crawford, after demonstrating the heart less iusiucerily of the Southern uulliflers, be said: •'Therefore the tariff was only a pretext, and disunion aud a Southern confederacy the real object. The next pretext will he the ne gro, or slavery question." Time has luliy verified this prediction, and we have uow not only a ‘'negro or slavery question" as the pretext, but the real cause ot this rebellion, and both must go down togeth er. It is vain to attempt to reconstruct the Union with the distracting element of slavery in it. Experience lias demonstrated Its in compatibility with tree and republican gov ernments, and it would be unwise and unjust longer to continue it as one of the institutions of the country. While it remained subordi nate to the constitution aud laws of the United Stales, 1 yielded to It my support, hut when it became rebellious and attempted to rise above the government and control iu action. 1 threw ray humble influeucc agaiust it. The authority of the government is su preme, aud will admit of uo rivalry. No in stitution can rise above it, whether it be slavery or any other organized power. Iu our happy form ot government all must be subordiuate to the will of the people, when reflected through the Constitution and laws made pursuant thereto—State or Federal.— This great principle lies at the foundation ol every government, and cannot be disregarded without the destruction of the government it self. In the snpport and practice of correct prin ciples we can never reach wrong results; ami by rigidly adhering to this fundamental truth, the end will be the preservation of the Uuioti and the overthrow of au institution which has made war upon aud attempted the destruction Ui lilt: loetrui The mode by which this great change—the emancipation of the slave—can be elk-cted, is properly found in tbe p wer to ameud the Con stiiution of the United States. This plan is effectual, and of no doubtful authority; and while it does not contravene the timely exer cise of the War 1‘owei by the President iu bis Emancipation Proclamation, it comes stamp ed with the authority of the people them selves, acting iu accordance with the written rule of the supreme law of the land, and must therefore give more general satisfaction and ijiiietiide to the distracted public mind. By recurring to tbe principles contained iu the resolutions so unanimously adopted by the Convention, 1 tlud that they substantially accord with my public acts and opinions here tofore made known and expressed, aud are therefore most cordially indorsed and approv ed ; and the nomination,Uaviug been conferred without any solicitation on uiy part, is with the greater pleasure accepted. In accepting the nomination I might here close, but I caunot torego the opportunity of saying to my otd friends of the Democratic party proper, with whom 1 have so long aud pleasantly been associated, that tbe hour has now come when that great party can justly vindicate its devotion to true Democratic pol icy aud measures of expediency. The war is a war of great principles. It involves the su premacy aud life ot the government itself. It the rebellion triumphs, Iree government, North aud South, tails. If, on the other hand, the government is successful,—as I do not doubt—its destiny is fixed, its basis perrna nent and enduring, and Its career of honor aud glory just begun. In a great contest like this for tbe existence of free government, the path of duty is patri otism aud principle. Minor considerations and questions of administrative policy should give way to the higher duty of first preserv ing the government; and theu there will be time enough to wrangle over men and meas ures pertaiuiug to administration. This Is not the hour for strife aud division among ourselves. Such differences of opinion only encourage the enemy, prolong the war. aud waste the country. Unity of action and concentration of power should be our watch word aud railylng-cry. This accomplished, the lime will rapidly approach when their arms in the Held, tire great power of the re bellion, will be broken and crushed by our gallant officers and brave soldiers, and ere loog they will return to their homes aud fire sides, to resume again the avocations of peace, with the proud consciousness that they have aided in the noble work of re-establishing up on a surer and more permanent basis the great temple of American Weedom. 1 am, gentlemen, with seutimeuU of high regard, Tours truly, Andrew Johnson. is reported that hire, raging in the neighborhood of Ellsworth, have swept through mowing fields and approached withiu very dan gerous proximity to the village.

A refill. Baltimore, July 26. The American has the following: The city last night was full of rumors of rebel movements in the Shenandoah Valley, together with vague account* of disaster to the force uader Geu. Averill, which last week attacked and defeated a purlieu of Early’s raiders near Winchester. Among the rumors prevalent were the deaths of Gens. Kelly and Averill, as well as Gol. Mulligan. The facts as far as we are able to ascertain, are that Geu. Averill, alter the sueeesslul en counter with Early’s lorces pursued them to the mountains beyond Winchester, where Ear ly made a stand. After heavy righting Saturday and Sunday, the rebels having been reinforced, Gen. Aver .11 was compelled to fall back to Harper's Fer ry, bringing with him the forces at Bunker Hill, aud causing the evacuation of Martins burg. The rebels appear to have pursued him, and yesterday afternoon again occupied Martins burg. where they cut the telegraph aud com menced destroying the Baltimore A Ohio Railroad. Our forces, accoi ding to the best advices, are now concentrating at Harper’s Ferry, un der command of Geu. Iluuter. The rebels hold Martiushurg. Rumors state that they are in large force, but this cau hard ly be possible, beyond the strength of the lorc es of Early aud Breckinridge. The object of the rebels in returning is doubtless to give time for the safe arrival of their trains ol plunder, aud to secure lire col lection of a portion of the crop in the Shen andoah Valley. That they may again come into Maryland lor more plunder is highly prole able, especially if they tind the way open to them, as is generally the case in the military management of affairs along the border. As to the extent of the disaster to our forc es in the light beyond Winchester, we have no authentic information, nor have we any coniir matiou of the death of Averill, Kelley or Mul ligan. The story is a doubtful ouc. We learn that orders have been sent to re move the army aud medical stores from Fred erick last uigbt, as a matter ol precaution, aud to prepare to evacuate the city in case of the advance of the rebels. Geu. Wallace convened the Loyal Leagues last night to advise with them as to holding themselves iu readiness in case their services should be required for the defence ot the city. Di-patches last night merely anuounce that Geu. Averill had been compelled to retire be fore a superior force to Harper's Ferry, but mentioned no serious disaster. At au early hour yesterday afternoon dis patches were received from Sandy Hook and other point* by railroad employees, to the ef fect that hostile movements had been resumed, aifll llmt it U'tlllM ho llll7«rHr\lla til iMomnt to run cars through as usual. The train from Camden Station yesterday morning proceeded as far as Sandy Hook, when those in charge were advised to return liy Gen. Hunter, who Is at Harper’s Ferry, which advice was taken and the train return ed. The tralu which was to have left last eve ning did not leave. The telegraph is cut west of Harper’s Fer ry. It was repelled that the forces of Averill and Crook had retie.ited beyond the railroad, but the officers of the road had not received any official advices to that eflect. Yesterday afternoon and evening rumors prevailed that the rebels had returned in heavy force in the vicinity of Martinsburg, aud had met and routed tho Federals, aud w ere dam aging the railroad. The train which left here yesterday morn iug aud went a.- far as Sandy Hook, returned last evening, crowded with Federals, who re ported that a heavy fight had taken place be tween Harper's Ferry and Winchester, and that Hunter had been repulsed with tbe loss of several pieces of artillery, aud a large number of men of two brigades. It is impossible to ascertain the true state of atlairs in that region, but there is no doubt that a serious disaster has occurred to the forces of Gen. Hunter. from Martlnmbury—tleu. Arrrill not Killed — Communication tritb Harper'm ferry forbidden. Baltimore, July 26. The evening edition of the American slates that it is unable to ascertain anything definite in regard to rebel movements at Martinsburg. farther than that most of the rumors of last night were greatly exaggerated. Gen. Aver ill has not been killed, hut compelled to fall back by superior numbers to the Potomac, thence through Martinsburg to Williamsburg. The evacuation of Martinsburg is undoubted ly true, but it is not known that the rebels oc cupy that place. Trains for Washington and Frederick left this forenoon as usual. Gen.

The death of this noble hearted and ac complished officer is a very heavy and severe loss. Next to Gen. Sherman, he was the offi cer most confided in by Gen. Grant- He possessed brilliant taleuts, was young, full of energy, with a heart overflowing with patriot ism, had much military experience, was con stantly in the foremost ranks and leading the most important movements, and won victories in the face of obstacles that would have dis couraged any but the most determined, reso lute commander. We regret the loss of such an officer. But he died in a noble cause, and his name will long he remembered by a grate ful and patriotic people. He was born in Sandusky, Ohio, Nov. l!»gs' and entered the Military Academy at Wist Point in 1640. In his first examination he gained a high positiou in that institute, and stood second In the fourth class of 1650, and first in tbe third class ol 1651. He graduated at tlie head of Lis class June 30, 1656, and entered the regular army immediately after wards. He gradually rose by bit own merits, and was promoted to the rank of Brigadier General of Volunteers May 15, 1662, and in March 1603 he was made Major General. Ills career, though brief, has been brilliant and full of promise for the luture, but a rebel sharpshooter cut his thread of life, and he now lies among the honored and revered dead of our country.
