Now, with a majority of people, it becomes a i e. canity. “What shall we eat ? what shall we drink t and wherewithal shall we be cloth ed?’’ are questions that require a great deal of severe thought and some anxious care to give them practical solution. Of two articles of food, both equally nutritive, bat one cost ing three or four times as much as the other, it is mauilestiy the part of economy to choose the cheaper. Of two articles of the same cost, but one three fold more nutritive than the other, by far the cheaper is that which will do the most to repair the waste in the system, and keep up its strength and vigor The quality of the food is of quite as much consequence as its quantity. Dr. Hall, in a late number of his Journal of Health, says the cheapest articles of food, at present prices, are bread (especially com meal), butter, molasses, beaus and rice. He shows that 25 cents worth of flour at« cents per pound, contains as much nourishment a* $2, 25 worth of roast beef at 25 cents per pound, and that a pint of white beans, cost ing 7 cents, has the same amount of nutri ment as 3 1-2 pounds of beef at 25 cents per pound, or, in other words, tlie roast beef diet is twelce times as expensive as the beans. Furthermore, a pound of Indian meal will go as far as a pound of flne flour, coatiug nearly twice as much. Here are some of the com mon articles of food, showing the amount of nutriment nnntaimxl and !Iia lima ro„ for digestion: Time of .lty,-•non.

According to the above tables’ cucurnliers are of very little value, and apples, cabbages, turnips, and even potatoes, at present prices, are expensive eatiug. Some vegetables ai d fruits should, however, enter into the family consumption, even if purchased for sanitary reasons. Among those which contain the most saccharine matter, sweet potatoes, par snips, beets and carrots, are the mostnourish ing. Roast pork, besides being an expensive dish, rsqulres too lengthy a drain upon the forces of the stomach to be a healthy article of food. That Old Elm Tree. It had boon often said, that lightning never strikes twice in one place, but that Old Elm Tree that stood ou the village greeu in Pitts field Mass, furnishes proof to the coiitrary. It has been struck by lightuiug several times, but survived all these b ills Irorn Ileaven, and now It has been cut down and sold for (10,0U to a person who has received (100, for small pieces of it to be preserved as mementoes. The tree was at least three hundred years old and the distance from the roots to the first limbs was 100 feet. It was a noble stately old tree, but the safety ol the people required that it should no longer cumber the ground. “It was hard to part with such an old settler. How often do events bring to memory that song of the lamented Morris. “Woodman spare that tree.’’ These few lines have im mortalized the name of the author, but bow much force and brevity have I keen added to them by adapting oue of Bsllini’s operatic melodies to the words. The song now speaks to us la two languages—one of words and the other of music, and both uniting tbei embalming force to foster and cherish a beau tiful and noble sentiment. , * ' * J*1" | A.-1!EJ"JS!BP1'* Atlantic A Bt. Lawrence Railroad Com pany. ANNUAL MKKTINO. | The annual meeting of the stockholders of the Atlantic & St. Lawrence Railroad Com pany was held at tiie old city hall yesterday, ! St. John Smith, Lsq-, President of the corpo- j I ration, presiding. The Annual reports of the Directors,Treas urer and Commissioners of the Sinking Fund were read and accepted. From these reports we gather that the in terest upon the City loans to this Company have been promptly paid; and that since the resumption of payuieul to the Sinking Funds, | the current installments have been promptly paid. The aggregate of the stock account is the same as by the last report, being *2.494,900,— ' I exclusive of the 15,000 shares held by the City > oi Portland, as collateral to its loans and for i oilier purposes. i The debt of the Company, which is all funded, consists of its ob ligations to the City of Port ns of its bonds, *2,000,000 Is ol the Compa ny in Federal currency, Dated April I, 1851, ou 15 years—ex clusive of those pledged to the City of Portland as collateral 988,000 Uoudaof the Company, in Ster ling currency, dated November 1.1853, on 25 years, payable in London—21000,000 at *4.84 i per 2 484,000 ! *8,472,000 | The interest on this indebtedness has been promptly paid. The connections of the Grand Trunk Rail way Company at the west and at Portland, for facilitating and increasing the business of their lines, continue as heretofore, with such extensions as the business offering requires. The last winter’s business of Messrs. Allan A Company’s lines of Steamers, running to and Ironi both Liverpool and Glasgow, in con I nectiou with the road, was, as we understand, J very large. Full cargoes each way were car ried, nearly all of which passed over the ! /oad. The Anchor line of Steamers from Glas- i gow, ou their way to New York, also touched at this port semi-monthly, landing passengers | and freight for the road. 1 In addition to the above line of Steamships, we understand, that during the ensuing win ter, a new line of Steamers now running be- | tween Montreal and London (a Montreal en- | lerprize) will make Portlaud their winter ! port. It is gratifying to the directors to state, tnat the traffic of the Grand Trunk Railway Com pany, with which this Company is so intimate ly connected, continues to increase from year to year; each year’s receipts exhibiting a fair per centage of increase over those of the pre ceding year. | The Capital stock is divided on the books as follows: 1125 shares in Federal curren cy. of »100eacli *112,500 , 4920 shares in Storliug curren cy of £100 or *474 2,381,280 70 fractional share rights of *10 each - 1,120 *2,494,900 The Sinking Fund or the City loau of *4, 000.0U0 amounts to *307,880.89. On the *500, ( 000 loan to *145.908*!. Total *443,796 42. The assessments for the years 1801 and 1802 have not yet been paid by the Grand Trunk j Company. A ballot was taken for nine Directors ior the ensuiug year. The number of votes cist was 9*id, all of which were for the last year’s list, viz: St. John S mith, John B. Brown, Phinehas Barnes, Charles E. Barrett, George F. Shepley, Harrison J. Libby, James i L. Farmer, Byron Ureenough. Alex. T. Gall. The Grand Trunk Company having re quested early action in reference to the bands of the A. A St- L. R. R- Co., which mature in 1800, the following vote was unanimously passed by the stockholders: ll'ktreat, By the terms of an agreement entered , into between the Atlantic A 8t i.awiruce Baiiroad Company and the brand Truck Hallway Company ! of Canada, on the loth day of February, A.

The meeting then adjourned. A Word about Cotton. Are the nations of Europe dependent oo the Southern States for their supply of cot ton f The latter thought so, aud rebelled in full confldeuce that the former would not only aid and assist them, but recoguize them at last as an independent power But this dependence of Europe on the Cot ton Slates has proved fallacious. Persons of great experieuce iu the cotton trade have made estimates of the supply of cotton for 1804. The average of these estimates is as follows, viz.; Bh’m. United States, 130,000 East Indies, l,75o,ooO ( liina, 250,000 Egypt, 280,000 Turkey and Greece, 140,000 Italy and Malta, 25,000 Brazil, 155,000 West Indies, 50,000 Tota', 2,750,000 It is conceded that the cotton from Egypt and South America is superior to that raised in the Confederate States, except ihe Sea Is land. No climate or soil in the world can j probably be found better tilted to the produc tion of cotton than Egypt. The product per , acre is equal to that of this country upon an average, and the absence of raiu is an ad- 1 , vantage over us, giving perfect security that the crop shall be gathered iu perfect ordeE— The present enlightened Pacha of Egypt, hav ing the assistance of able English and French engineers, is now introducing steam cultiva tion to a great extent, and with entire success, and can command an unlimited supply of la borers The crop of Egypt, which was ouly about 90,000 bales In 1860, was 240,000 bales iu 1803, and is estimated at 350,000 in 1804. From the profits of a single crop works of irriga- . tion could be constructed, sufficient to bring under cultivation two million acres capable of | producing a bale to the acre. In regard to only a single section of the j country, the Delta, Mr. Gibbs makes the fol lowing statement: “I have examined the whole of tlie Delta, from Cairo to the sea board, and all the branches of the Nile, and thecauaU leading from it, and iu some cases ' have made minute surveys of the whole coun try, and now state that at least one million five hundred thousand acres can at once be , 1 put uuder cultivation for cotton.” When, In addition to Egypt, we reckon the other cultivators of cotton, viz., Chiua, Eist India, Turkey, Greece, Italy, Brazil and the West Indies, we cannot avoid the conclusion that the Confederate States, by tliefr suicidal act, have driven King Cotton to more congen ial clime*. * Caitobt a Taktak.—As Dr. Seymour of ; Calais was coming through the bridge on | Wednesday niglit last, his horse was seiz-d by the head and stopped. lie desired Ihe person to let go, but got no answer. He then drew his pistol with the intention of firing at him, but fearing he might shoot his horse ha laid the pistol beside him on the seat, and kuow ing the spirit of his horse, gave him a cut with his whip, when the horse jumped and thew the person down, and the wheels of his carriage passed over him as he lay sprawling on the ground. The bridge, says the Adver '• User, ought to be lighted all night at the ex pense of the people of both sides of the river. 5^Able seamen’s wages at Calais are reported , at #80 a month. ■ "m. ". 1 ~"-e The Morning Bhower. BY D. A. DROWN, PORTSMOCTU, N H. Once more the horning eye of day Peeps through the gates of morn, While lurid beams of mellow light I The lowering skies adorn. No joyous soDg* of tuneful birds s Come from the silent woods. And cooling winds (bid Up their wings, In deepest solitude. No bro»th .litturb, the binging »ine«. 1 , Nor stirs the bcudiug grain ; And drooping flow rets sadly pine For cool, refilling rain. j Tire inunuuriug streams, with plaintive strains The geueral burden share,— All nature teems in silence hushed, As if in sacred prayer. The stillness breaks.—the fluttering leaves Proclaim the signs of rain, 1 And whl*j»er from the topmost boughs The welcome news again. I The burdened clouds, with generous hand. Unlock their treasure* fast, And thirsty earth, with parching lip, | Heceivc* the boon at last. Then smile* with dewy, sparkling eye Fair children of the wood. i And dripping lille* bow their heads , With tears of gratitude, Bright, sunny skies smile lovingly O'er all the meadows green. And duhpUnl brooks and laughing hill* Kejoice to grace the scene. The emerald twigs are thickly strung With beads <*f silver light. In which a thousand rainbows blend, And cheer the wondering Night. Sweet odor* from the spicy grove* Pervade the cool, soft air,— „ An offering sweet from thousand Ups, Which breathe pure praises there. So. when dark cloud* of sorrow hide life's fairest, sunniest skies,— W hen gloomy scenes on every hand Thy hardened soul apprise; Let faith, beyond the darksome vail Behold the hand divine, Hhieh, thus concealed, but come* more near To make choice blessings thine. Maine Soldiers in Mower Hospital, Phila delphia. We haYe been furnished the followiug list of sick and wounded Maine soldiers in Mower Hospital, Philadelphia, by Mr. H. G. Cole, who has just returned from that city with his son Francis C. Cole, of the :)2d Maine, who was considered dangerously sick at that Hos pital. ' Mr. Cole speaks in the highest terms of praise of the treatment of the soldiers and the iuterest manifested in their welfare by the Surgeon in charge, Dr. Moone, and his As sistants. He attributes it to the kind care of the attendants and skillful treatment of the surgeon that his son so far recovered as to be able to reach his home: First Maine Cavalry—8 B Cross, li V Mann, Cy rus Sievens, A Kthecil.

Athanase Coquerel, a talented young preach er, has been deposed from the pulpit of a Protestant church In Paris tor advocating Uuiversalisl sentiments. The Kugllsii Uni tarian- have expressed their sympathy for him, and American Universalist contemplate similar action. The Methodist Church Conference of 1960 appointed a committee to revise the Uitual. They have just made their report. The prin cipal changes are slight mod ill cations of the old Ritual in regard to Baptism, the Lord's Supper, Matrimouy, Burial of the Dead aud Ordinations. A form for the dedication ot churches was added. The peoplp are also re quested to join audibly in the Lord’s Prayer whenever used in public worship, and to re spond to the prayers of the Ritual. The new Ritual gives rather more of form, and requires a more active participation of the people in the services. Fire in Washburn. The Loyal Sunrise gives the following par ticulars of the destruction of nearly the en tire village of Washburn, in Aroostook coun ty: On Wednesday last, the wiud blew a hurri cane, aud every Are in the woods or elsewhere kindled at ouce into a conflagration. Some oue set fire to a chopping about two miles south of Washburn village. With terrific fu- I ry the lire swept through the woods and swamps, aud in less lhau an hour the village was in flames. lu an incredibly short space of time thirty buildings were reduced to ashes. Nine of these were dwellings ; some of them, however, were vacant, the owners being alisent in the army, and their families away. The saw and grist mill of Isaac Wilder, Esq., which were I the best in tlieeounty, aud lor perfectness and finish among tlie best in the .State, were com pletely destroyed. The machinery attached to these mills were a circular saw, a grist mill with two runs of stones, clapboard ma chine, shingle machine, lathe machine, broom handle machine, turning lathe, sash, door and liflnd factory, and carding machine. Mr. Wilder has lost not less than ten or twelve thousand dollars. Mr. Isaac Wilder’s and Mr. Benjamin Wilder's houses were sav-* ed. which are the only buildings remaining within the limits of a hall mile in extent. At least two thousand dollars' worth of lum ber was lost, several large aud well finished bams, all the fences burned, aud the growing crops in every direction are ruined. Acres of grass, grain and potatoes are consumed. A few families saved a very few articles of bed ding and household furniture in a damaged state, hot of little worth. 9evi ral Cows, sheep and hogs were so burned in the pasture that they are worthless.

The people removed all they could save him the flames to what they believed was a safe listance, but the Are followed, and not a hun Iredth part of the property escaped destruction.

Tiie Tribune s account of the Petersburg repulse says our charging patty were hardly iu motion, after the explosion, when the rebel* showed themselves prepared by opening a vol ley. The abaltis and other obstructions ol the fort were not destroyed, which caused much difficulty to our advance. The interior of the exploded work presented a confused mass of earth, guns, camp equippage and hu man bodies. Several attempts were made to advance toward Cemetery Util, but failed un der the seventy of the rebel enfilading tire. About tl A. M., Ferron’s colored troops were ordered to make an attack ou Cemetery Hill, 400 j ard9distant. They with stead iness until they reached the Hue of the other divisions, when the rebel lire was brought lo bear upon them. They turned to the left and became mixed up with the other troops.— About one thousand colored troops leaped iu to the exploded work, now a mere pit, and which was crowded already with white troops. They (the negroes) tumbled headlong- down the sides, causiug a scene ol inextricable con fusion. Attempts were made to get them out and lurin them in line, but failed. All our ar tillery was plajiug ou the rebels, but their (the rebel) lire stemed to increase iu severity. They moved from right and left, concentrat ing iu front of our assaulting columns, lle tweeu seven and nine o'clock three) attempts were made hy our troops to charge, but failed. About U A. M.our tire slackened,End the reb els rushed out and charged our troops. At tirst they were checked, hut tiually they got possession of most ot the grouud between tbe trout aud their line, and came within a short distance of our troops. Our troops then tried to get back iuto our Hoes. About 1 P. M. the enemy made another charge, wheu about one thousand, mos ly blacks, bioke for our lines. Hundreds ol them never reached them. What were left of our troops iu the work were now completely hemmed iu. They remaiued there nearly an hour, wheu an order was issued to fall hack lo their original position. Gen. Bartlett, who was left in the fort, sent word that unless relieved, he aud those with him would have to surrender, as they had no ammunition. Shortly alter the rebels were heard to make another charge, wheu doubtless this party surrendered. The 5th corps, though under fire, did not | |oin in the attack, and the 2d corps was entire ly passive. Gen. Sheridau's movement was countermanded. From thr Army before Iiichmontl. HEAtrqLAKTKUS Akmy l’OTOMAC, I J uly 31. 1 Tbe exact losses in the battle ol yesterday hare not been officially ascertained, but as near as can be judged will reach 2,300, not in cluding the missing. Many believe that tbe tlgures will prove larger, lu tbe hospitals of tile Pth corps the first division has 300 meu, second division 307, third divisiou 341, aud lourth or colored division 030. The larger number of wounded are lying on tbe Held be tween tbe two lines, aud cannot be got olT.— The IStli corps lost about 300, while Turner's division, 10th corps had nearly 400 killed aud wounded. A Hag of truce was sent to the enemy to day for the purpose ol getting the remainder of our wouuded olf the Held, but was refused —reason not given. Geu. lljtler also Sent a Hag of truce to-day, which was likewise re fused. The rebel officer gave no reason for refusing, except that hit orders were peremp tory not to receive such Hags. The rebel of licere also refuse tj exchange newspapers, and the rebel soldiers are so closely watched by their officers that they have nochauce ol mak ing an exchange. There must be some reason for this. Many believe that their line is very weak, w hile others think they have some ex tensive move on foot aud are afraid of It be. lug known to us. Tbe raid iuto Pennsylvania may be tbe reason lor their wishing to keep everything from ns, and as quiet as possible. J All the wounded that have been brought Iq are. being well cared fur, Urn medical arrange incuts being ample. The lines of me two armies are about the same as Iwlure the battle. Picket bring has been constantly kept up since. The uuntbe-r of prisoners captured and Drought in, is about can, me highest rank among tbem being a captain. They are Healthy looking, but Ibeit dress presents the usual dirty auj ragged appearance. The re ports sent yesterday morning that Uie colored troops had captured an entire rebel brigade, has uo foundation.
