Sewing Machine improvements—John Porter. (ieuta' Furnishing boods—J. E. Fernuld Wonderful Sewing Machine Improvements. Every lady who uses a sett ing machine, of almost any of the approved patterns, is aware of the dauger to the needles and the difficulty lu breaking and entangling the thread, when the wheel starts in the wrong direction—turns backward. They also know how necessary it la, especially when tbe crank is on the centre, to take hold of the wheel with one hand in order to start it, and this, too, when both hands are so much needed to manage the work. By a very ingenious contrivance, easily ap plied to almost any machine, ail these evils are avoided. It is called “ Williams’ Pattnt Crank Motion." The advantages derived from the use of this improvement over the common crank, concisely stated, are as fol lows : 1st. It gives the operator the entire control of the machine, starting from any point, and turning the wheel always in the right direc tion without using the bauds. 2d. The motion of the treadle Is acquired with greater ease, from the fact that this im provement will not allow the machine to be turned in the wrong direction, which is tbe cause, in many cases, of breaking needles, en tangling thread, Ac. 3d. By Its use, the new beginner is confi dent that the machine can always be started and moved in the right direction by the feet alone, and the mind being thus divested of all fear of turning tbe machine in the wrong di rection, the operator can confine the atten tion to the use of the machine. 4tii. The machine can always be started with tbe feet, even though the Crauk be on tbe centre. 5th. By its use the operator can, at the : time of starting the machine, apply both hands to the article to be aewed, which is the very lime when both hands are especially needed to hold and guide the work. Mr. John Porter, of Ubode Island, is in the city for the purpose of applying this im provement. lie will be found at No. 11 Clapp's Block, where the advautages of the improvement are fully demonstrated. He called upon us, and we reluctantly consented to his applying his improvement to a “Wheeler and Wilson”—which had been allowed to go almost out of use because it was so often out of order—and now it works so well that we expect to be ruined in purchasing cloth at the present high rates to be worked up with It. Serious) j, it is one of the most practical and valuable iaveutioui we hare ever seen, aud we would advise.every lady owning a machine, to call upon Mr. Porter and see the operation of it. Another lest pretentious but very valuable Improvement, is what is called ••Uyde't At tachmentapplied to the needle arm, through which the thread passes, and which makes in ferior cotton or linen work equally well with the roost amoved cotton, and enables the | needle to work iu sized cloth as readily as in the soft finish. Mr. Porter’s advertise ment will be found in this paper. The Congressional Committee Excursion1 The House Committee of Congress on the Defenses of the Northeastern Frontier—con sisting of Hon. John H. Kice, of Maine, Chairman, Hon. John B. Alley, of Massachu setts, Hon. Samuel S. Cox, of Ohio, Hon. James T. Hale, of Pennsylvania, Hon. James W. Patterson, of New Hampsire, Hon. Wm.

A portion of the committee arrived last evening, and the others, with members of Congress who have been invited to accompany the excursion, will arrive here this morning. The party will assemble at the Preble House at 9 o’clock, precisely, and at the invitation of a committee proceed in a body to the new City Hall, where they will be presented to the Mayor, City Authorities and citizens. After inspecting the harbor and visiting the forts under guidance of Major Thomas L. Casey, D. S. Eogineer Officer in charge, the , party will lunch on Bang’s Island at 2 o’clock, and during the afternoon witness the expert ments in gunnery and target firing from the 15 inch guns en barbette on Fort Preble and Fort Scaramel, and from the 100 lbs. Parrott guns at the several forts in the harbor. At 9 o’clock in the evening the City Hall will be open for a public Levee, with Music, Dancing and other amusements. In the examination of the fortifications to- 1 day the party will consist only of the Con- ' gressioual Committee, their invited friends and such members of the Committees as may choose to join.

Bust, comprising 179 men, and the )5lh Maine, under Col. Dyer, numbering 232 men, arrived here in a special train from Bos ton yesterday afternoon. At the depot they were furnished with abundant refreshments both edibles and drinkables. After remaining here an hour they left for Augusta. These troops re-enlisted last January while in the Department of the Gulf, where they have been ever since the regiments weut for ward from this State, until about six weeks since, when they entered the army of the Po tomac. At the time of re-eulisling tbe ex igencies of the public service required their services in the field, and they remained. They come home now, laden with honor, to spend a short furlough, and then to return once more to the front. They appeared hale and hearty. Ou leav ing the depot they gave nine rousing cheers • for the city of Portland and for the Union. • The Natural History Rooms will be open for the reception of visitors every day this jreek. Supreme Judicial Court. CRIMINAL TERM.—DAVIS, J., PRESIDING. I Trial for Attempt to Kill a Family by Poison. The case of State vs. Margaret Wallace who was charged with attempting to poison the family of Mr. C. V. Bosworth on the 13th 1 of January last, by mixing arsenic in a tea kettle lull of water, but which was discovered , before any U6e was made of the water, and i which has occupied the Court four days, was brought to a conclusion yesterday. Mr. Wil liams, counsel for the prisoner, concluded his argument about tweuly-flve minutes belore 1 o’clock Monday evening. Festerday Mr Butler, County Attorney, made an able and elaborate argument for the prosecution, occu pying a little more than two hours. The charge of Judge Davis was very impartial— so much so that the counsel for prisoner did not request any special instructions to be given to the jury. Alter an absence of about twenty minutes the jury returned into Court aud rendered a verdict of Sot Guilty. Margaret was then discharged. She has been In jail nearly seven months. Xehemiah It. Murphy was tried on a com plaint, appealed from the Municipal Court, charging him with extortion, in charging the sum of two dollars for conveying three pas sengers from the Boston boat to Merrill street, in violation of the city ordinance regulating the fares of backs and carriages. The defense was that one of the passengers was sick and that respondent had to wait upon the wharf more than one hour before he could get the family of complainant into his hack; and had to give up conveying other passengers who wished him to convey them to their residences; that he told Mr. I’ittee, the complainant, that he should cousider himself and hack under his charge; and that he was about two hours be fore he got through with the job for Mr. Pit tee, beiug obliged to walk his horses all the way from the wharf to the residence of Mr. Pittee, on account of the sick daughter. Per contra—Mr. Pittee testified that it was about 6 o’clock when he engaged Murphy, and that it wanted ten minutes of seven when he aud his children were landed at his house. The case was managed by Mr. Butler for the State, and by Messrs. Howard i Cleaves for the respondent. Judge Davis, in charging the jury, remarked that the city ordinance provided what fares should be paid for conveyance of passengirs in hacks; and that hackmen bad no right to charge for waiting. If a hack driver did not choose to wait he could leave the passenger, but if he waited he could not charge extra. Such charges for waiting would lead to re peated violations of the ordinance, as the drivers could charge for waiting for the boats to arrive. Neither had a hack driver a right to charge more for the conveyance of a sick passenger in his carriage than one that was well. It was optional with the driver whether to take the passenger or not. u naer an tie circumstances of the case, the Judge remarked, the respondent having waited so long, he did not think he had re ceived more than a fair compensation; and, although his opinion was that haekmen could not charge for waiting, yet this was one of those cases that the public good might be sub served by not pursuing it any further. The County Attorney then withdrew the case from the jury, and entered a nol. pros. Kirs well J. Carter aud Greenleaf Chute, convicted at the last November term of an assault with intent to maim, recognized per sonally lor their appearance at the next term of the Court. J. O. Donnell for the defense. The case of State vs. Francis O. J. Smith, for adultery, was continued to next term, the defendant recognizing for his appearance. Ilenry J. Morgan, the hotel thief, against whom three indictments had been found, re tracted his plea of not guilty on the first in dictment, charging him with larceny of cloth ing Iroui the l’reble House, aud pleaded guilty. Continued for sentence. N. Webb and Uow ird & Cleaves for prisoner; M. M. Butler tor Slate. The jurors were dismissed, and Court ad lourucd to 3 o'clock this afteruoon. Municipal Court—Aug. 0. Thomas Collins, for drunkenness and dis turbance, paid a tine ol $3 and costs. Hugh McGlinchy, a lad of fifteen years, pleaded guilty to lareeuy of a clock line from Jesse S. Felt, and paid the fine imposed of t'2 aud costs. The Levee.—The levee to be given this evening in honor of the members of Congress and other distinguished visitors, promises to be a brilliant affair. The music is to be fur nished by the hand of the 17th U. S. Infantry. Refreshments will be provided by Mr. R. L. Robinson. The managers are as follows: General Managers.— H. N. Jose, P. H Brown, Henry Fox, O. M. Marrett, H. H. Furbish, J. G. Curtis, G. O. Gosse and L N. Felch. Flout Managers.—Jarnes E. Carter, John H. Hall, J. Hall Boyd, M. N. Rich, Stepheu Berry, Benj. F. Lunt, Frank Furbish and Wil liam Allen. The general managers will wear a blue ribbon, aud the floor managers a white one. Theatre.—The beautiful play of Borneo & Juliet will be presented at Deering Hall this evening, Kate Beignolds assuming the charac ter of Juliet. This should be sufficient to attract an audience large enough to fill the hall. Kate is to perform here but three nights, : and the probability is that we shall not very soon have an opportunity of seeing her again> as she contemplates visiting Kuglaud as soon as her term at the Boston Museum expires. We hope, therefore, that during her short en gagement here every -eat in the lutll may be filled. Tickets.—Subscribers to the fund for the entertainment of the Congressional Excur- j siouists and Editorial fraternity can procure their tickets to the levee aud clam bake of Mr. John H. Hall, Win. L. Southard and J. Q. I Twitchell at the Merchants’ Exchange to-day. Tickets for the levee at the new City Hall this evening, admitting a gentleman aud his ladies, may be procured at the same place, at $2 each. Editors and Publishers can obtain their tickets for the levee and excursion at the close of the Editorial Convention, at the Sen ate Chamber, this afternoon. Hobhkrv.—The store of Mr. Aretas Sliurt lett, on Moulton street, was broken into Mon day evening, by entering through a back win dow Into the cellar, and thence through the large trap door into the store. From one thou sand to twelve hundred dollars worth of to bacco was stolen and carried oil. Information was given to the City Marshal, who worked up the case so that he recoven d the whole of the stolen property before 12 o’clock Tuesday. It had been trucked lour different ways and by four different teams since it was stolen. He found the whole of it packed in one targe dry goods case, aud jud about beiug conveyed to the Boston depot. Larceny from the Pkhsox.—While Mr. P. Tobin was pulling away bis money last evening, in his shop on Fore street, about 11 o'clock, be was watched outside by two of the Invalid Corps from Camp Berry, who ob served him placiug some bills iu his pocket. They entered the shop, and one of them placed Ills arm around Mr. Tobin's neck and began a conversation with him, while at the same time he rified his pocket. Mr. Tobin called the police, and officers Charlton and Sterling went in aud arrested the meu. The Picnic of the Second Parish aiffi High Street Sabbath Schools will come off to-day. The parties will leave Union Wharf precisely at 9 o’clock this morning and proceed to PldgeoQ Cove. BY TELEGRAPH TO Tax Portland Daily Press. — -*— Extra Seaaion of the Penn. Legislature. Harrisburg, Pa., Aug. 9. The extra session of the Legislature met here to-day. Gov. Curtin, in his message, calls upon the Legislature to take some action for the de fense of the Slate. He spoke of the support received by Pennsylvania to the National gov ernment, and says tht State has fullflll all her obligations. Pennsylvania, he says, has a right to be de fended by the National forces, as a part of the common country. He quotes a letter address ed by him, to get her, with Gov. Bradlord of Maryland, to Pres. Lincoln, asking that re cruits raised by the State shall be credited to the quotas on the last call made, and be arm ed, equipped and supplied, as other volunteers in the service; also a letter from the Adjutant General, stating on behalf of the Secretary of \\ ar, that such authority cannot be granted. The governor says the suggestion has been frequently made, by unreflecting persons, that the State should raise a force and keep it per manently in the Held. A part from other con siderations it is to be observed that the ex pense of such a measure would be quite be yond the present ability of the State. Reltrl Raid oh Ruffalo in Embryo. Buffalo, X. Y., Aug. 0. The Commercial Advertiser has further particulars about the reported rebel raid on this city. It appears that the Provost Marshal of this city, from various reports, was led to believe that the rebels in Canada had organized an expedition to burn Buffalo and destroy the ca nal locks at Lockport. He laid the matter before Gen. Dix, who stated that he was aware of the existence of such a plot, but was unable to provide any means to defeat it, aud advised that measures lie taken here as the exigency might require. The public are unadvised of any means of de fense having been taken. It is report that Mayor Fargo has protested against the removal of the 74th regiment, which has just been ordered for 100 days duty from here. Capture of n Rebel Train. Washington, Aug. 9. On Sunday a rebel train was seen beyond , Aldie, Loudon county, Va. The rebels de- 1 tached some of their wagons loaded with plunder from the main body, and moved in an easterly direction from the mountains, in the meantime being followed by a body of Union cavalry, who were not, however, in suflicient force to make an attack. At or near Aldie the Union force was augmented by about sixty cavalry under command of Col.
