TBUM.—DAVIS, J., Trial for Attempt to PoUon. Moxdait.—State vs. Margaret Wallace, for attempt to poison. The testimony of Mr. Wentworth was fin ished. Sargent P. Coe testified that sometime in Jauuary last Mrs.Uosworth brought a piece of tissue paper to the store ot H. H. Hay & Co., which contalued arsenic. It was not the kind of paper druggists use for wrapping up such articles. Mrs. Morrill testified that she left Mr. Bos worth’s house about half past six o’clock that evening, to attend the lecture. On her return, at Mrs. Uos worth's request, she went down into the kitchen and examined the kettle and sink. Her testimony corroborated that of Mrs. B., in relation to finding the powuer in the kettle and around the pump. Mrs. Bosworth was recalled and testified that she went to see a neice of C'apt. Baine, where Margaret had formerly lived, and told her that Margaret had lost many things since she resided in her (Mrs. B.’s) family. The neice said Margaret was dishonest when she lived with Capt. Baine. THE DEFENSE. Mr. Williams opened the case for the pris oner. He did not deny that arsenic had been placed in the tea kettfe—it was conclusively evident that such was the fact. But he con tended, notwithstanding the strong circum stances which, in the evidence for the prose cution, pointed to Margaret as the one who placed it there, that it was placed there by some other person. There was opportunity for it according to the testimony of the gov ernment witnesses. He should endeavor to show by competent testimony that Margaret was not in the house after 7 o’clock that even ing. The most important witness for the de fense, Mr. Sabine, who was with Margaret from half past 7 o'clock that evening, until she went home, was in the army and it was impossible to obtain his evidence. He com mented strongly upon the idea of adjudging a person guilty upon circumstantial evidence, and quoted cases in which persons had been wrongly accused upon circumstances. Capt. Baine and his wife and Rev. £. W. Jackson and wife, testilled that Margaret had lived with them. They gave her an excellent character. Mr. L. Marr testified that Margaret had been employed in the laundry. Found her capable and honest. There was an opportu nity for pilfering there if the employees were ! so disposed. Charles F. Kolf testified that on the even ing of January 13th, he was with a friend of his named Sabine, who told him he was ex pecting his woman to go to a concert with him. lie (Sabine) said he had called at the house but they told him she ha^ been gone about five minutes. Sabine then said, here she comes. This was near the corner of Tem ple street. Looked at Dunyon’s illuminated clock and saw that it was 25 minutes past 7 o’clock. Observed the female closely, as be wanted to see what kind of a woman Sabine had. The next week he was called upon to go to the jail to see if he could identify the girl who was with Sabine. Went there and immedi ately pointed out Margaret as the one. Rec oguixed her also iu court Did not kuow where Sabine was now. Mr. Williams theu placed Margaret Wallace, the prisoner, on the stand, which, according to the statute passed at the last session of the Legislature, he had the right to do. The jury to take her evidence for what they consider it worth. She gave her testimony in a very calm and cool manner, and did not appear at all excited during the cross examination. The following is her testimony; My native place is Nova Scotia. Have bir- ; ed out about eight years, three of which were in Gorham, the rest in Portland. Resided in Gorham with Rev. Mr. Jackson, Mrs. Hall and Deacon Irish. Came to Portland and worked for Mr. Marr in the laundry, while it was here, and a short time at Saccarappa.— Then weut to work at Mr. Williams, theu at Capt. Baiue’s. Then weut home. Returned to Portland and went to Mr. Bosworth's.— Went there the first ol October and left in January. On the evening of th# 13th of January, the family had tea earlier than usual on account of the Mercantile Library lecture. After some couversatiou about the towels, Mrs. Boe worlh charged her with stealing some of the cotton cloth. Witness denied it, and said she had purchased the cloth at the eastward.— Mrs. B. said it was similar to hers, and she wished the witness to leave the house. After eating her supper witness proceeded to set the table for morning. Miss Brown came in before the table was cleared, and eat down and partook of supper. Afterward she came down stairs and got some w ater. It was about 25 minutes before 7 when I got through with my work. Then weut up stairs ; j found my clothiug takeu from my trunks and laying on the outside. Put my things back into my trunks,and theu went down stairs and went out the lront door, unlocking the door and leaving the key in the lock. My lam p I left on a table in the hall. Never bought or used arsenic. Mrs. B. bad complained of person’s coming to the house to see me. When I went out of the house I went to i Iligb street. Just as I got to the corner the clock struck seven. Weut up High and down Congress streets; stopped at Wiswell’s and purchased some apples; then weut down Middle street and met Sabine, near Temple street, and went to the post ollice with him ; walked around with him and went to a saloon and got some oysters. Had got a place at Mr. Jordan's at Cape Elizabeth, and weut to Mr. Bosworth's for my trunks the next Saturday. Was arrested Sun day—the officer who arrested me said there was some trouble about my truuks. He did not tell me what 1 was arrested lor. On cross examination, witness testified that in addition to the places named where she had lived, she had lived at Mr. Morse’s aud at Mr. Nullings'. When at the eastward, was at Hal ifax, Cornwallis,Eastport,Calais,St. John and some other places. Returned here on Tues day and weut to Mrs. Bosworth's the next Mondav. After walking around and getting the oys ters on the evening of Jan. 13th, went to Mrs. Piper’s, No. 43 Sumner street, and remained there until Saturday. Became acquainted with Mrs. Piper when I worked in the laun dry; she lived in the next house. Never heard anything about Mrs. Piper's being tin ned until 1 was put iu jail. Visited Mrs. 's while I resided at Mrs. Bosworlh’s.— Sabine went as far as the door with me that night, but did not go in. Told Sabine I had been discharged; told him that night". Mrs. Bosworth said she had rather I would leave that night. Mrs. Bosworth was in the kitcht n when I left the house. Helen Brown came in before Mrs. Morrill left. Wore my boots when I went out that uight; had wore them all day; had but one pair. Wheu Helen Brown came Mrs. Bosworth was talking to me about steal ing; the conversation continued for five min utes after Helen came. When Mrs. Morrill left the house Helen was sitting at the table. Washed the dishes, set the table for break fast, swept the kitchen, brushed the stove off and set the tea kettle; then took the lamp from the sink room shelf; there was no oil in it and I left it on the table; had some matches in my hand and might have left them with the lamp. It was 25 minutes of ~ o'clock when I went up stairs—looked at the clock.— The clock struck seven when I readied the corner of High and Ilanforth streets. Was in the store five or ten minutes purchasing the apples—had to wait for other customers. Was in my room hut a few minutes putting my things into my trunks. Spoke to Mrs. Bosworth on Saturday about my pay. She owed me for eight weeks ser vice. She refused to pay me. Spoke about my stealing and visiting Mrs. Piper’s. Told her that Mrs. Piper was as good as any body. Never was in the house after I left it, except the Saturday I called for my trunks and my pay. Did not call the next day for my pay becaused I prefered getting a place first. She has not paid my wages. Left the demand with Mr. Williams to collect. pid sot change my dress after I went up to an room Did not have on • calico dreaa when I washed the dishe*. Did not intend to come tiack when 1 led 111*- house Dial night. Could uot go up stairs without being heard by Mrs. bosworth. as I hail oa my thick boots. Could uot tall when Mrs. Bosworth paid me any mouej —certainly not any within two months, i was in a hurry that night In order to get btck in season. I)o not know how my clothiug csuii* out ol'my trunk unless Mm. Bosworth look it out. Aid sure the gas was not lighted in the kitchen that night or for weeks before—all the light I had iu the kitch en was the large kerosene lamp I took from the dining room. The water never boiled over from the boiler into my boots, for I al ways had them on my feet. DIRECT EXAMINATION RESUMED. Mrs. Morse with whom I lived a long time, is now iu Boston. When I left the bouse 1 heard Mrs. Bosworth in the kiichen—did not see her. Mrs. B. and Miss Brown were the only persons in the house, and I supposed it to be Mrs. B. This closed the evidence on the part of the iiritinnAr FOB THE PBOBKCUTIOS. Mrs. Morrill recalled. She testified that Margaret alway» went out and came in by the back door. Margaret had a pair of thin boots that she wore about the house. The last time 1 was In the kitchen, betweeu three and four o'clock in the afternoon, she had on a print dress. When 1 left the house Helen Brown had uot arrived there. 1 met her a short dis- i tancc from the house and spoke to her. The last time 1 saw the thin boots was betwet n Thanksgiving audChristtnas.shouldsay about the middle of December. She purchased a new pair of bools and shew them to me. She wore the thin boots about the house; I could tell by the sound. Mrs. Bosworth recalled. I settled w ith • Margaret on or about the tlr»t of January, and paid her all that was due her up to that i time. Always paid her every two weeks, with oue exception. 1 was in the the country and did not settle with her until my return. Mar garet left her boots near the boiler one day when she was hauging out clothes, and the ; water boiled over into them. She generally used the back door for egress and ingress.— | No one called f r Margaret that evening.— Never knew her to empty the tea kettle and prepare it for morning before that night. Do not remember if I called Miss Brown’s atten tion to the boots of Margaret that night. The most money 1 ever paid her at oue time, was seven dollars. After I let my brother and Mrs. Morrill leave the bouse that night, and Miss Brown had come iu,i locked the door.— Miss Brown came in shortly after my brother and Mrs. Morrill left the house. Alonzo Wentworth. Afier arresting Mar garet 1 examined her trunks. Fouud a pair of cloth boots, tit for wear, in one .of the trunks. The trunks were examined at Mr. Bos worth’s house. Helen Brown.—When 1 went down into the kitchen that eveuiug for water, about 7 o’clock, Margaret was engaged in washing dishes, and the gas was burning. I met Mr. Kaler and Mrs. Morrill just before 1 reached the house—spoke to them, David B. Kaler—Was present when the trunks were called for on Saturday—nothing was said about wages. Know Sabine. He called at the house Friday evening after the circumstance and enquired for Margaret — this was between 7 and 8 o’clock. Mrs. Williams, Mrs. Cummings and David Stillings were called by Government. They , testified that the character of Margaret was bad; that she had a reputation for dishonesty. REBUTTING. Margaret Wallace was again placed on the stand. She testified that she burned up her old boots when she purchased her new ones, and that she had no boot* in her trunk. Mr. Williams then summed up for the pris oner in an able argument, occupying the at tention of the jury nearly two hours and up to the adjournment.

Tb the Editor q/' t*« Press Qi kbt.—An evening paper talks about the proposed “Editorial" Convention, and says on Wednesday forenoon it will organize a “State Editorial Association.” I don’t un derstand how the editor* are to monopolize the Convention, or how It can properly be styled an “Editorial’’ Convention, or how it ran organize an “Editorial Association.” Its Committee of Arrangements embraces—and of course the Convention will embrace—not only editors, but ex-editors, publishers and ex publishers, job printers and ex-job printers, besides the reporters of the several papers These latter classes largely outnumber the ed itors, and if the Convention is not more prop erly a Publishers’ and Printers’ than an Edi torial Convention, then a misapprehension exists in the mind of more than one Job Pri.ntkr.

BY TELEGRAPH -TO THE BVEN1N6 PAPEIiS. Various Iteini. New Yoke, Aug. 8. It is ascertained that the rebel force ou the Upper Potomac is only Early’s command.— They have not been reinforced to any exteut. Gen. Sheridau will take command of the for ces in the Held operating against Early, while Gen. Hunter remains in command of the De partment. Torbit will command the cavalry. Hooker is not to have a command at preseut, but takes leave of absence. The Court of Inquiry to investigate the cause of the disaster before Petersburg, has decided that it cannot legally examine wit nesses or go into the merits of the question. The matter has been referred back to Geu. Meade, who, it is reported, intends to prefer charges against Gen. Burnside. The World’s Washington dispatch says it is reported that Postmaster General Blair in tends soon to retire from the Cabinet. The U. S. steamer Merrimac sailed hence for Portland Friday, to lake the Congressional Committee on their proposed excursion down the coast of Maine. Admiral Dahlgren has at last secured a pho tograph copy of the order said to have been written and issned by his sod. Col. Ulric Dahl gren, wheu making the raid towards Rich mond, and pronounces it a forgery. From the I'pjtrr fotoinuc. Baltimore, Aug. 8. The American says: “ From a gentleman from the Upper Potomac, we learn that the entire rebel lorce yesterday evacuated the Maryland side of the Potomac, moving off in great haste. Their rear guard crossed at Shepardstown at 11 o’clock A. M. yesterday, and the balance crossed at Uaucock about the same time. Previous to leaving they sent back a cavalry force to Hagerstown and car ried otr four prominent Union citizens as hos tages for rebel cilizeus arrested by order of Gen. Uuuter, from the south side of the Poto mac. We learn that Early has been moving up the Valley towards Winchester, with his harvest train. During all last week he scour ed the country for conscripts and grain, con- ! lequeully he made but slow progress ou his march. They are tnoviug otf toward Staun- ’ ton, but that they will make their escape with out interruption we do not believe.” Foom Mobile—Preparation* for an Attaek. New York. Aug. 8. The U. S. supply steamship Admiral lias re turned from a cruise of supply to our block- , ading squadron, stopping off Mobile. The Admiral fouud close in under Sand Island the monitor Manhattan, with a lull head of steam, ready to encounter the rebel ram Tennessee, which was at anchor two and a half miles dis tant, with three other iion and cotton clads. The vessels off Mobile were the flag ship Hartford, the Richmond, Monougabela, Ossl pee, Lackawana, Metacomet, Oueida, Sebago, Geuessee and Uieuville, all beiug vessels of very heavy armaments, and the gunboats Ken nebec, l’enolataska and Jackson. Two iron clads were expected from the Mississippi, and another monitor from an Atlantic port. The officers and crews were anxious to force an entrance into the bay. I'r.nt the Army before Richmond. Washington, Aug. 8. A letter from the Army of the Potomac, dated the 6th inst., evening,says it is not gen erally believed that the purpose of the enemy on Friday was to blow up a fort in front ot the 6th corps, but their intention was to damage a tuiue that they suspected was being dug in front of the 18th corps. Our men rushed to their posts after the ex plosion, when a rapid fire commenced Irom our lines in the direction of the enemy sup posed to be advancing. As soon as the smoke cleared away, the state of affairs was discov ered, and the tiring ceased. Capture of Gen. Stoneinan Confirmed. Washington, Aug. 8. Information from Gen. Sherman’s army leaves no doubt ol the capture of Gen. Stone man, with a portion of his force. A Brave Color Bearer—Sergeant E. Sprague, of Rockland, color bearer of the Jlst Maine, lias distinguished himself highly, as we learn from officers of the regiment, for coolness and gallantry iu some of the hottest battles of the late campaign of the Army of the Potomac. He has carried the colors of the regiment from Alexandria through the Wilderness to Petersburg, via Spottsylvania, Pamunkey River, Cold Harbor and the James River. At the recent assault on the works of Petersburg, he was the first oue in Ids brigade to plant the stars and stripes on the fort, and when the advance was ordered a short time afterwards, lie was ahead of his regiment.— When the second line of breastworks was cap tured, he was the first to plant his flag upon them also. His gallantry was noticed by most of the brigade, and was the subject of much commendation at the time, and if it should be rewarded as it deserved, the act would be pro ductive of much good to the service.—Bangor , Whig.

Karl Kusseil, however, made some defense of his foreign policy, and assert ed that England never stood i:i a prouder po sition, and its influence was never greater with all foreign countries than at present. The remarks of Earl Kusseil were very coldly received. The Londou News says a vessel has just ar rived at Liverpool with 1000 bales of cotton, the proceeds of which will go towards the sinking fund for redeeming the bonds and paying dividenns on the April account, pro visions having already been made for Septem ber.

A Copenhagen journal of the 26th gives a report that an armistice for nine months had been concluded, during which period the oc cupation of the Duchies by Austria and Prus sia will be coulinued.
