Saturday.—State vs. Margaret Wallace, for attempt to poison. This case eras resumed. Dr. II. T. Cum mings, who had beeu requested to bring in the paper, in which was wrapped the arsenic, fouud under the stove in Mr. Bosworth's house, testified that he could not find the pa per. Thought he gave it to Deputy Marshal Wentworth for the purpose of identifying it. Mrs. Anna C. Uosworth testified at length to all the circumstances in the case. Mar garet came to live with them last October, us a domestic, and left on the evening of January 13lh. Having reason to believe that Margaret was dishonest, Mrs. B. discharged her. Noti fied her of it about half-past six in the eve niug, and told her of the articles found in her room. Toid her she might go or stay that night. About half-past 7 o'clock Mrs. B. went down stairs to the kitchen—found no light there. Margaret bad done her work as usual, and left things as she generally did—she was not there. Noticed the tea kettle sat on the back part of the stove with hot water iu it. Lifted it, and judged it to be about half full—left it as she found it—noticed that Margaret’s lamp was not in its place iu the sink room, and that her heavy boots which she was accustomed to wear when she went out were laying close to the boiler. Was in the room not over ten minutes, and theu went up stairs. Shortly be fore 8 o’clock beard some ooe walking from the stove to the pump in the kitchen, heard some one pump, and then heard some one walking back to the stove. At five or ten minutes past 8 o’clock went again to the kitchen—fouud the back, porch and entry doors open. Margaret's lamp was on the kitchen table, aud two matches beside aw nv i uwiu nvic . a uv ivu aciuc uau beeu taken from the back part of the stove ar.il set in front—the water iu it was cold— Margaret had never been io the habit of fill ing it over night. There was a white stuff round it—the water was dead cold—some of the white stuff had suuk, some of it floated. In the siuk room found some of the substance round the pump, and let it remain there. Locked tbe doors and let it remain there. About halt-past 0 o'clock Mrs. B.’s brother (her hushaud was absent from the city) and Mrs. Merrill went down into tbe kitchen and examined. The powder had settled in the water. The water was then poured from the tea kettle into a tin pan and put into a cluect. Next morning Mrs. B. swept from under the stove a small paper that contained a small powder—gave it to Mrs. Merrill, who hauded it to the brother of Mrs. B., by whom it was taken to Dr. Cummings. Weut to Margaret’s room and fouud ber trunks—her clothing had been placed in the trunks. Did not see her that night after the conversation. On cross-examination Mrs. Bos worth stated that she could not recollect whether she told Margaret that she would rather she should leave tbe house that night. They had had no hard words that evening, and there had been no severe language or scolding betweeu them. Margaret denied taking the cloth she bad been charged with stealing. Never had any trouble or quarrel with Margaret before this. No one in the family had had any trouble with her. Never knew her to get out of temper. She came back to the house tbe next Saturday to get her trunks (the affair occurred Wednes day)—refused to deliver them—told ber Mr. Bos worth wonld not let her have tbe.n. She said she would call again, and wanted to know the reason why she could not have her trunks. Told her she would know the reason when she saw Mr. B. Discharged Mary Long for dis honesty, and Margaret took her place—do not recollect as to Mary Long’s temper, Helen Brown corroborated the testimony o( Mr«. Bos worth as to hearing the pumping, fioding the tea kettle removed on the stove, and discovering the white powder in the tea kettle and in the sink room. Daniel B. Kaler, brother of Mrs. Bosworth, testified that he resided in tbe family in Jan uary. Was at tbe Mercantile Library lecture on the evening of tbe affair. On his return was informed by Mrs. B. of the circumslanres. He took the paper found under the stove to Dr. Cummings. Deputy Marshal Wentworth testified to the arrest of Margaret, which took place on the Sunday after the transaction. Before con cluding his testimony Court adjourned to t> o’clock Monday morning. The prisoner is a young woman of rather prepossessing appearance. She maintains per fect calmness during the examination of wit nesses. She says she belongs in East port. Municipal Court—Aug. 6. Samuel Kuapp,one of the baggage masters on tbe Graud Trunk Railway, for obtaining money by false pretences, was ordered to rec ognize in the sum of #1U0 with sureties for bis appearance at the November term of the Su preme Judicial Court. Io this case, one of the passengers had a free ticket, and Kuapp pretended that the freight on his extra baggage amounted to $2, which lie (Knapp) made tbe passenger pay in Canada currency, notwithstanding the passen ger had exhibited his free ticket to tbe bag gage master. Mr. James Nimons, tbe passen ger, then complained to Mr, Bailey, tbe Super intendent of the road, who ordered this com plaint to be made against Knapp, who has since applied for his discharge from his posi tion on tbe road. P. Barnes, Esq., appesml for the prosecution, and J. H. Drummond, Esq., for the defense. Sarah Wail, for conveying instruments to prisoners in jail, by means of which they could effect their escape, was committed to jail, io default of sureties in the sum of (100 for her appearance at the November term of the S. J. Court. Sarah pleaded guilty. John McGliuchy, on a search and seizure process, was fined (20 and costs, which he paid. Beception of Visitors.

A subscription list was started, headed by Hon. S. E. Spring for 1100, and the sum ol 0500 was subscribed in a very short time. Base Ball Match.—The second match game of Base Ball between the Nameless and Hough * Ready Clubs took place Saturday afternoon, resulting in the defeat of the latter.

Club.__ Taking Poison by Mistake.—Last Fri i day a lady residing in the lower part of the city, feeling somewhat unwell, thought she would take a dose of peppermint, and directed the maid to prepare it. The girl went to the box where the medicines were kept, and poured out a large dose, advising the lady to take a larger amount than usual. The lady took It and drank it at a breath, but no sooner was it down than she discovered she had something else than peppermint. The girl, who^raa as much alaimed as her mistress, ex amined the bottle that she had poured the dose from, and found that it was a solution of arsenic. Medical aid was Immediately sent for, and Dr. Bascorn was soon there. By ad ministering copious doses of mustard he soon ' succeeded in relieving the stomach of the poisonous dose, and saving the life of the lady, i This should serve as a caution to every one not to keep poisonous compounds in the same place with harmless medicines. The “Lady Lang .—The Machias Repub lican makes severe accusations against the officers of the steamer Lady Lang, for misus age of the members of the Oth Maine Regi I ment, on their passage homeward from this city to Bangor, The Republican says they were refused the privileges of the boat—berths , and meals—upon their offer to pay the differ ence between their transportation tickets and full fare; that they were allowed nothing to eat 'till the other passengers had eaten, and then only the crumbs which were scraped to gether, being the leavings of the other passen gers. We should be sorry to believe the story of the Republican, and ‘.rust there is another side to this matter which has not been given to the public, and which will place the officers I of the boat in a less unenviable light. Soldiers received and discharged at Port land Soldiers' Home for the week ending Aug flth: Received—John Williams, Co. D, 14th Me. Regt.; Eben Day.

Labckxy.—Police officer Akers, on Satur day, arrested a woman named Barbara Fitz gerald, residing on York street, for larceny of a piece of alpacca from the store of Messrs. B. F. Hamilton A Co., corner of Congress and Preble streets. She went into the store and, while examining articles, secreted the piece of goods uuder her garments. One of the Arm observed her proceedings, and,as she attempt ed to leave the store, detained her until the officer could be sent for, who conveyed her to the lockup. At her residence some small ar ticles of dry goods were for nd, which, as It was suspected they were stolen, were taken to the police office. Sudden Death.—Mr. Levi Bolton, an old and respected carpenter of this city, went into the store ef Messrs. Chase, LittleAeld A Co., Saturday forenoon, and complained of be ing unwell. He sat down on a stool, and then said that he wished to lie down. They were the last words he spoke, for he died almost immediately. Dr. Foster was soon on the spot, and pronounced his death as occurring Irorn heart disease. Coroner Hall was called, but deemed an inquest unnecessary after learning the facts. The deceased was about sixty-six years of age. A gentleman who is acquainted with the localities contiguous to our harbor, suggests that It would be well for the Congressional Committee to examine Ram Island for the lo cation of a Fort or Battery. He says it com mands two of the outer entrances to the har bor, and good judges think it a desirable loca tion for defensive works to save the city Irom the enemy’s shells. Drowned.—Marlin Coin, a laboring man, residing on Congress street, while crossing ' the Grand Trunk Railway bridge across Back j Cove, Saturday aflernoon, stumbled and fell I overboard. He struck bis head against the piles, which injured him so much as to cause him to siuk immediately. His body was re I covered last evening 1.0. O.

A “citizen” requests us to state the num ber of men which the city is obliged to fur nish—not yet enlisted—under the last call of the President. We are unable to do so, but presume the Mayor can afford the desired in formation. The picnic of the Preble Chapel Sunday School was postponed to Tuesday of this week Refreshments are wauled, and may be left at the Chapel this afternoon or Tuesday morn ing before 8 o'clock. The American Illustrated papers for this week have been received at the book and pe ; riodical store of A. Robinson, No. 31 Exchauge ; Street. U.

BV TELEGRAPH TOTHS Portland Daily Press. -—— Front the Army btforr Sirhmond. Washington, Aug. 7. A letter from the army of the Potomac, dated Friday evening, says no change In the position of the two armies has occurred since the late battles. There has been the usual picket firing on the ceuter line. Heavy firing was heard Friday afternoon in the direction ol the loth corps, and a report was circulated to the effect that the enemy attempted to blow up the torts in that vicini I ty, but were unsuccessful. Tbe rebel battery on tbe north side of the James Kiver lias been very annoying fora day or two. Quite an engagement took place this morning between it and our gunboats, and it w as finally forced to Umber up and leave. The weather continues very warm, and con siderable sickness prevails among the soldiers, who suffer principally from diarrhiea. St. George Court House was wontonly Tet fire to and destroyed, on Friday morning, by some soldiers. A letter from the Army of the Potomac, dated Saturday, says the rebels blew up a mine last evening before dark, in front of tbe ■ 5th corps, but as they had not dug to within forty yards of our works no damage was done. They also attempted to make a charge, cheer ing loudly, but must have felt chagrined at finding themseives so far from our Hues. Con siderable firing was kept up for an hour. The enemy's loss was heavy, but ours was very light. All quiet t'lis morning. New Yoke, Aug. 7. According to the Petersburg papers the rebels brought into action only two brigades in repulsing our forces before Petersburg. One brigade repulsed a charge by our troops and the other followed up the repulse with a charge and drove, what of our men could get ' away, hack over the breastwork, and made prisoners of all left behind, about 100 besides • tbe killed and wounded. The Rebel Raid into Teunnylvnnia. Harbisbcbg. Pa., Aug. 0—(i P. M. A dispatch received here at noon by the cashier of Harrisburg Bank from the cashier of the Bank of Cbauiiiersburg. states that the rebels evacuated Hagerstown this foretnon.— This was subsequently confirmed by dispatches 1 to headquarters which add that the rebels are j now retreatiug along the Potomac river in ; tbe direction of ShepardstoWu. The last dispatch from the operator at Greencastle said he was about proceeding to j Hagerstown to open up telegraph communi cation. 1) AL I I HOKE, AUg. O. We have nothing here but rumor* in re gard to movement* ol rebels in the valley or : on the tipper Potomac. There is nothing definite, but tbe opinion la entertained that the demonstrations of the rebels is to gather * in toe crops of the valley, and that an inva sion will not be seriously attempted. Baltimore, Aug. 7. It is reported here that a force of rebels was crossiug the Potomac yesterday beyond Han cock, and was going In tbe direction of Wheel ing. The same authority says that Early has beeu or is lieing reinforced by Lougslreet's ! corps, and Wheeling is to be tbe point aimed at. There is no means of ascertaining the re liability of this rumor, but it is thought to be unreliable. New Tore. Aug 7. The Baltimore American of the *ilh says of the invasion:—The best that we can hope is that the rebels will attempt to make a serious invasion of Maryland or Pennsylvania. We have a competent force in proper position to force from them on tbit side of the Potomac a fair open fight. All that we need is compe tent generalship to make our forces available, and that it we may believe the reports reach ing us, is a waul that has at last been supplied. From .V«r Orleans. New York, Aug. 7. The steamship Malanzas,from New Orleans 21st uit., ha* arrived. The steamer Merrimac arrived at New Or leans on tbe 21st, and the Evening Star, Ore. oie and Mississippi wore passed in the Missis sippi river, bound up. The Matauza* brought many exchanged prisoners, among whom are the following:— | Coi. J. J. Burt ill, Lieut. Col. A. J. Duyanne, j i Capts. Sanford, Hopkins, Peck, Geo. S. Hel vin, Proctor, Symes, Lieuts. Lawrie, Buckley, | Jcnkiu*. Steveusnu, James Satnpsod, X. W. Morse, H. Uamble, I). K. Eddy, B. P. StowelJ, ! J. H. Newcomb, S. F. White, J. W. Greenleaf, j J. Basset, J. Wilson. Very little business is doing at present. The new* of Sherman's progress and the con sequent decline ol gold in New York lias un settled tbe markets, and quotations are nomi nal and without material change. Gen. Canby’s order for the enrollment of tbe militia creates intense excitement in se cession circles, but there wrs no esespe lor them. Since the tiring above Vicksburg upon tbe Clara Belle, by which three men were killed and nine wounded, everything has been quiet on the river as far as heard from. Several schoouers and luggers are reported to be cruising in Lake Pootichartrain, captur ing aud burning tisbiug sloops. The plain of the tugboat Sentinel reports that he was cha*ed to the South West Pass by a suspicious looking steamer, bark ligged and painted black. Tbe rebels assert that she wa* the Electric Spark. She has since run into Mobile bay. The attack on the defenses of Mobile is daily expected, aud has probably already com menced. There is no movement in this department sufficiently advanced to bear mention. From Washington. Washington, Aug. 6. A gentleman arrived here to-night who has beeu in Hagerstown for the past week, says ; the rebel cavalry which drove Cole’s cavalry and a portion of Hunter’s infantry out of town | on Friday last, were for the greater part dress ed in federal uniforms. Information has reached here that the Union officers, placed by rebels under tire at Charles ton have all been exchanged. They were sa luted by our fleet aud Admiral Dahlgren en tertained them on board bis ship. They have been sent North. A number of families from Montgomery County, Md., caine to Washington to day, panic stricken, aud reported rebels approach- i ing in that direction. Advices from the Army of the Pnlomac re port the situation in front unchanged. It is generally believed that Gen. Sheridan has been assigned to duty on the upper Poto mac. Maj. Gen. Sickles and staff arrived at I Washington to-day Horn tbe Gulf. H ashinytun Corrrsj>on<lrnee. V L'U' Vunt A u<s /l The Commercial's Washington dispatch says the government has received no iuloriua i tiou of the attack ou Mobile. Admiral Farragut informed the Navy De partment' ou the 20th ult .that he would make an attack as soon as the land force was ready, : which would be on the 29th and 30th ult. Two of his iron clads could pass Dog river , bar up to the city. Tu<- Post’s Washington dispatch says rebel 1 reports of the capture of Gen. Stoueman is | discredited. There Is no news from Gen. Sherman to day. Keports in reference to Farragut’s opera tions at Mobile, Is believed to be correct, as such a movement was expected at the lime stated. A dispatch to the Chfonicle says the rebels in Maryland have raised the black flag, and announce that they have come to burn and destroy. Advices from Petersburg represent every thin quiet before that place. from California. San Francisco, Aug. 0. Due hundred bills, of molasses from Hono lula for San Francisco, was sold for *1100 in gold on 2d inst. Mining stocks are falling again. Gould A Curry *950 to *1000.

From Petersburg—Explosion of n Mine m itrra Federal Work—Roth Armies Strength ening their Positions. New York, Aug. 7. The Herald’* special Washington dispatch, says the rebels exploded a mine under one of our works on Friday afternoon. No particu lars are kuowu beyond the fact that little damage was done. The Herald’s 5th army corps correspond ence of the 4th says both armies are active in their works, constantly strengthening them. Reported Battle at Osreola. Cairo, III., Aug. 0. vAu officer ol the steamer Olive Branch, states that while the steamer was aground on Island 34, on the 3d inst., stragglers aloug shore reported that a fight had taken place at Osceola between 800 rebels under Bowen and a federal force, commander unknown, result ing in defeat of the rebels, who lost many kill ed, wounded and prisoners, also all their arms and equipage.

Bravery of Colored Troops It has bceu slated that, at the stormiDg of the enemy's works at Petersburg, on Saturday, July 30th, the colored troops flinched and did not stand Are. We have the very best author, ily for contradicting this report. They faced the belching cannon of the enemy iu a manner worthy of the best troops of Napoleon the 1st. We have been permitted to read a letter from one wbo participated in that terrible and sanguinary struggle. The 3d brigade of the 4th division of the U. States Colored troops, Utli corps, numbering over 3300 men, was commanded by CoL Hen ry G. Thomas of this city. They were or dered into the breach, but were compelled to fall back after a short but bloody ordeal. The second time the charge was renewed, and the havoc was fearful. The loss by these two charges, In this one brigade, in killed and wounded, was ttrelee hundred and fifty one! The loss of officers was very severe. It is doubt ful if any brigade of equal numbers, iu so short a time, ever left more upon the field, dead or disabled. There was no running; no flinch ing; no turning; no panic, but with unflinch ing courage they faucJ the deadly Are until overwhelmed and compelled to tail back. Col. Thomas, we aru gratilied to learn, was not in jurea. A brigade on the right of Col. T. was order ed to charge at the same time, so as to pre vent the endlading Ore which was concentrat ed upon the 2d brigade, but for some unex. plained cause it did not make the charge, and to this failure is perhaps attributable the mis carriage of the assault. A Sai» and FataI- Accident.—About a week since, says the Lewiston Journal, a little daughter of Mr. Geo. L. Hill of Auburn, j seven years of age, started to carry a penknife to some companion, and hitting her foot acci dentally fell with the open knife in her hand. She naturally put up her right band which grasped the knife haudle, to save the blow, bringing up the knife blade towards her neck so that when she struck the fall caused it to penetrate the throat, cutiiug a deep gash. Medical assistance was procured, aud it was hoped that none of the arteries bad been cut. Two weeks passed, the wouud partially heal- - ing, although the child was ailing, when on Wednesday evening she suddenly screamed twice and fell fainting to the floor, saying that she felt faint. Her mother rushed to her assistance and aid was obtained, but in less than an hour she breathed her last. Phy sicians pronounce her death to have been caused by the bursting of an artery which had been partially cut by the peuknife two weeks before. The suddeu death of their daughter has severely afflicted the bereaved parents. iy The only benefit the Government has re ceived, or is likely to receive from Fremont's nomination, is the saving of his salary as a su perannuated Major General. If McClellan should be nominated at Chicago, and should follow the example of the Cleveland candidate* another item of needless expense will be saved to the Government. Gen. McClellan may be of some service, negatively, yet. Rare Chance for Business!
