J— --"-,1,11 --- • - - : ' Horatio Southgate. How true it i«,that when a uian ceases to mingle in the bustle of affair*, and withdraws from public observation, his name aud his acts, however useful and honorable they may have been, fade from the memory, not only of the passiug generation, but even from that of hi- contemporaries who mingled w ith hitn In the struggle ot events. As I look around, stnl recall the figures of those I knew in early life, who were then filling high purls in the drama of time, I perceive that over most of them, retirement has cast his oblivious sliad i ow. Aud yet I am not announcing a new truth, only revivii g an old oue: for Shaks 1 |*are, three hundred years ago, set forth, iu his quaint language, the same sentiment: ‘‘Tim* hath my lord, a wa M at hi* back Wherriu he puts aim.* for obiiTlou.” And the Bible was before Sliakspeare in IP ; lustration of the same truth. Here now lies one, just put Into the silent grave, who iu his early days mingled bravely and gaily iu the world’s affairs, an active mem ber of the Bar'of Cumberland sixty years ago, i a most accurate and faithful Register ol Pro bate twenty-one years, and the author of an i excellent Probate Manual, which has guided many a dull administrator through the mazes ol the Proba:e Court. And yet in this day not three fourths of the people of this city, or i of the county, remeinlter nr know who llora son of I)r. Robert Southgate, of S' a r 11 trough, where he was born in August, 1781. lli* father, a skil ful physician, an honored magis trale, aud Judge of the Court ol Common Pleas, died at the age of ninety-two, in 1813. The sisters of Horatio were renowned for tieauty and grace, aud were everywhere the obsei ved of all observers. Their mother was i the sister ot the celebrated Kings, Rufus, William aud Cyrus who in their time were i conspicuous among distinguished statesmen and politicians. Mr. Southgate Was educated at Exeter Academy, the moat celebrated institution of its kind then opened tor instruction, aud un der the care of the excellent l)r. Abbott. It was the favorite resort, iu the early part oi this century and the close of the hist, for the young men of Maine to prepare lor colleg" and otlwr pursuits iu lile; many went ther< from Portland. Mr. Southgate entered it i.r* 1714, and continued there several years, aud j then entered the office oi Salmon Chase, ol Portland, where he completed his course of | legal study, was admitted to the Cumberland Bar at the October term in lSt'2, aud iuimedi j ately opened an office in Portland. He then Ibund in full practice at this Bar, J ohu Froth ! ingham. Darnel Davis, Win. By mutes, the late | Chief Justice Parker, James D. Hopkins. Chief Justice VVhitmsu, Stephen Longfellow. Benjamin Orr, Barrett Potter, aud three or Ibnr other lesser lights; of these Chief Justice Whitman aud Judge Potter, the seniors of Mr Southgate, stilt survive, both at the age ol j eighty-right. But there is living a still older member of the Cuutlierland Bar, Samuel Thatcher, ol Brewer, $n this Slate, horn July 1, 1776, a grad tate of Harvard iu the class of 17n3, aud hiviug the rare distinction ol being the old. est living graduate since the death of Joiiah Qiitucy, he entered the Cumberland Bar in 1763, when he established himself in New Gloucester. Witbiu two years alter, he re moved to Warreu to take the place vacated by the late Judge Wilde, who had removed to Hallowed. Into the fellowship of such a society, so in teliigeut, so dignified, «o courteous, our yoaug aspirant entered, and honorably aequilteU himself iu the honorable profession of his choice. In lSlo he was selected by that wise aud honored statesman, Gov. Strong, as Reg. ! i-terof Probate lor this couuty, aud laithiid ly discharged the duties of that office under Judges Freeman and Potter 21 years, through various political changes of government. In 1815, he retired from office to his pater n tl larin in Scarborough, where he spent the remainder ol his life iu the peaceful pursuits | of agriculture, calmly and serenely awai.iug , the summons for his depart tire, which came at length, in the midst of suffering, on the 7ib inst tut, aud w as welcomed with the joy ful an ticipation of a higher aud belie r life. Mi . Southgate had, by his three wives, slx j teen children, of whom live are liviug. Oi his aons, tire were educated at Bowdoin Col lege, aud all became clergymen; of these hut three survive; Hubert at Ipswich, Bishop Horatio, in New York, and William S., a inis siouary of the Episcopal Church. WitU calm and pviieut tecignalion, this agml a id venerable in m received the welcome message “Come up higher.” "Tile tt sun is cahnest wh vu it nesrs the tide, T is liusei-t are «wwete-l at tut «va.,-tjik, Tus bix .« must musical at close of div.

The Government 7 3-iOths. • It was said many years ago by one of our high officials, “Frauce wauts money and must have it.” But how much more urgenuand important is the cry, “Our Government want money and must have it.” Every loyal heart feels that this rebellion must and shall be put down, and that our brave soldiers must b> psid fir fighting the battles of Freedom and Humanity, not only for us—for this genera tion—but also for those who cmne alter us,in t ie long future. The rebel eoldiers fight with out pay, or as near to that as can well lie, but we pay our bravo boys for their toils and suf ferings in behalf ol our common country. Now the people, who have the “material aid,” which is protected by a good Govern ment, must contribute to the support of that Government, otherwise their earthly posses sions will he hidden by a very leelde tenure, aud may take wings aud fly sway. Be not • fee i A tenet ..a 1.. .1- r. . severe trial. True patriotism is not sordid a id selfish; its views are broad, arid takes in a whole country, and is not coi.Hi ed to the “pocket-nerve” alone. These who loan the Government discharge a duty which will uever be forgotten. Besides all this, the bread thus cast upon the waters will return again and bless biin who gave It. Again we say. be not afraid to trust your 1 country. halever you lend to the Govern meut will be repaid with usury. V. u can have no better security than the Government affords, and a more profitable investment can not be made. L -t all who have any surplus funds loan them to the country which is now earnestly calling upon all to lend a helping hand to crush out this wicked rebellion. While our soldiers are lighting and dying iu the cause, let your ads show to the world that you too are willing to make such sacrifices as are within your power. Sacrifices did we soy 1 The performance of such a duty cau hardly i be called by that name. Every dollar loaned to your country wilt be repaid with interest. And aside from motives of patiiotism, a shrewd business tact would prompt any capi talist, or him who has but little to spate, to invest In Government funds, and accept the off. rs the Secretary of the Treasury lias made to the people.

Young was a racj production, but of course somewhat enigmai ical to outsiders. The address at the tree b> H. J. Cushing was a good article, and quite forclUv delivered. Smoking the pipe of pear, ext followed, and the contorted faces of some indicated that smoking was decidedly olfeu five to them. The singing of the parting od. was the closing exercise of the class. At 4 o'clock iu the afternoon, Rev, Mr. Granger ol Pi evidence, delivered an oration at the Bap tist Church before tbe Alutnni of the College - and this exercise being an entirely new feat lire, was not as well attended as it otherwise would have been. His subject was I be R. la tion ol Scholarship to Success, and bis pro duction was an excellent commentary upt n the topic. In the evening were celebrated the anniver saries of the Literary Societies. The oration -vas delivered by K. 1*. Whipple of Boston, on “The position and influence of young men i i history,"—He used no notes whatever, his voice was clear and sufficiently powerful to be heard iu all parts of the room; but a slight m inotone was quite noticeable, and would have been disagreeable had it not been for tin ; superior excellence of his article. Owing to the sudden sickness of the Poet we were de prived of the usual poem, and as we did not receive notice of bis sickness until yesterday morning, were of course unable to procure s i substitute. 1 saw by your last night's papei that the degree of L. L. D. was confetred | upon Gen. B. F. Buller by Williams Col lege. I suppose they forgot the fact that the same degree was conlerred upon “Our Ben” -•■me year or two since by his Alina Mater Waterville. He is a graduate of the cla-s o '38. and while here gave indications of his fu ture greatne-s.

York County Union Convention. Alfbed, Aug. loth, 1$<M. To Iks Editor of iks Pret It A beautiful ride ibis perfect morning from a neighboring town, brought me into the pres ence ol the York County Union Convention assembled here, and having uo responsibilities is a delegate, I have time to give you below a summary of Hie doings of the Convention. Hon. I. S. Kimball, of Sauford, was nomin ated temporary President,and John E. Butler, of Biddetord, temporary Secietarv. Subse quently the following gentlemen were voted iu as permanent officers: Iucrease S. Kimball, President; G. E. Smith, ol Xewfield, James Morton, of Buxton, W. P. Stone, of Kennebunkport, Ivory M. Nute. ot Berwick, ami Joseph Haidy, of Saco, Vice Presidents; Joliu E. Butler, ol lllddeford, and James W. Grant, of Lebanon, Secretaries. The following named gentlemen, a comrnit ! tee on credentials, reported eveiy town repre , -enli-d. there being in all 118 delegates: Ste phen F. Shaw, of Saeo, Ivory M. Nute, ol Berwick, Francis U. Buller, of Sauford. A committee ot seven was appointed to se ed a County Committee, who subsi quenlly repor'ed the below tiuuied gentlemen, who were duly elected: Francis Bacon, James M. D cring, John E. Moody, Jacob Black, George Uetcbell, Alonzo Leavitt, Joseph W. Hanson, Ira S. Libbey, Sylvester Lilliefleld. The following named gctiUouie.'i were chos j en a Committee on R-solutions: John Ham mond, of North Berwick, J. E. Butler, ol B ddeford. S. Littlefield, of Allred,-Dans. > ot Elliot, and J. S. Libbey,ol Limerick. The 11-solutions aie excellent, but 1 have no time this afternoon to copy. The billowing named gentlemen, the present acceptable incumbents, weie nominated by ac ' claination: Edward E. Bourne, Judge of Pro bate; George H. Kuowlton, Register of Pro 1 bate; E. H. Banks, E. H. Jewett and Luther , Sauboru Senators; A. U. Guild, Couuly Treas 1 urer; Caleb B. Lord, Clerk of Courts. The below uainetl were selected by ballot for the offices opposite their respective names : I S. Kimball, of Sanford, County Attorney; Richard II. Coding, of Acton, SheiilT; Cleiu eut L. Mildram, of Wells, County Commis sioner. The Convention adjourned from the Town Hall at 3 o’clock to the space in front of the residence of John II. Say ward, E-q., where a 'arge assembly are being addressed by Gen j E. \V. Gantt, of Arkansas. O. P. Q. Telegraphic News Yesterday. lur iouciveu iu reia tiou to the movements of our armies, contain ed nothing further than we have before had. Tne official account from (Jen. Logan in rela tion to the battle before Atlanta on the 22J ult , states our total loss iu killed, wounded .'ind missing to be 3 521 and ten pieces of ar tillery. The estimated loss of the rebels is 10,000,of which 3,220 are reported us killed, that number having been buried or delivered to the enemy. The number of prisoners sent North is 1,017; the number of wounded in our bands is 1,000. We also captured eighteen stand of colors, aud have them now, aud live thousand stand ol arms. Yesterday morning a telegraphic dispatch was received staling that Mr. Stanton, Secre tary of War, had resigned, aud that his resig nation had been accepted by the President.— In the atteruoon a dispatch was received stat ing that Mr. Stanton had not resigned, aud had uo intention of doing so. The Employment ok Ekkedmen.—The Washington correspondent of the Boston Ad vertiser telegraphs that the new regulations of the Treasury Department for the employ ment aud care ol freeduieu completely set a-ide (Jen. Bank's system and the low wages. The fieedinen employed arc to be herealtcr , paid as luUows:—Over IS and under 20 yeais ol age, $25 per month ; women, $18; over 14 aud under 18, and over 40 aud under 85, men and women. $14; over 12 and unCer 14 and over 55, males $15, lemaies $10. Besides this, employers must furnish without charge suffi cieut ijuarleis for the laborers, a separate house aud one acre of ground lor each family, fuel, medical attendance and schools for thil dren. The fired rates shall not debar any laborer from contracting for higher wages if he can get them. Wages are made the first lien on the cro| a. and iliere shall be no shipments ol produce till the laborers are paid. Employers i “hall furnish food and clothing -at cost to all | persons employed. -- ■ a——— - ---■ — ■■ Wage? for labor in Europe. The Secretary ol the Board of Agriculture collected during the past year in a visit to Eu rope, some interesting statistics in relation to arm laborers. Tbiity seven cents per day ire wliat the laborer gets in Irelaud and boards himself. Tuis is the highest sum, but the farm laboier gets twenty-tlve cents and finds his own board, and at that tate he can uot get w< rk half the time. The day s work ‘is from daylight to dark—no ten hours sys tem for him. Iu Ghent, Belgium, and other places, the av erage price is about SOcts a day. The work men finding themselves. On the Rhine it is 2octs, and so all over the continent. The la borers in all cases board themselves. The piy for females who labor in the fields at the Agricultural College Weihenstephan is Id cent* a day. This is in harvest time when the price is higher than at other seasons ot the year. This is indeed small pay for hard • arued labor, lu Dublin and vicinity a la borer works hard 12 or 14 hours to earn enough to buy a single pound of butter. Good iviugis nearly as high iu those couutiies a* it is here, and how the people live is a mys ery. Meat is a luxury that but few laborers •ujoy, and yet they work hard during day light. Xo wonder the tide of i.uigralion is setting so strong to the New World. Messrs. Wade and Davis. Senator Wade, of Oaio, aud Henry Winter Davis* of Maryland, have put forth a docu meut of great bilteruttH, which is seized upon by the viltst coppeihead papers with ih ■ avid ity of a buzzard lor a bit of tainted mesl fbe Argus has extracted from it of course. The Boston Advertiser notices it as follows: Mr. Wade of the Senate, aud Mr. Winter Davis ot the House, have recently put before tie country a document which has elicited or its authors the wann gratitude of the op position. We regret our inability to give to >ur readers the address of these gentlemen iu all its amplitude, hut it can probably be iound in tile first opposition paper on which hecu.ious inquirer lays his hand. Messrs. Wade and Daws, it will be remembered, were the chief advocates of that uiilortiinate re LUU'U UVIIVII "in* U1'*’CU UIC I ICSIUfUb 9 signature; and ii is ea-y therefore to under stand the feelings which dictate their criti cisms on the President’s disposition of their avorite measure. Anger at the fate of their offspring anil disappointment at their failure u> become the historical authors of a grand scheme of reconstruction, may Ire traced throughout the comparison which they make between their plan ami the President’s; while llielr arraignment of Mr. Lincoln is probably animated as much by feelings of that sort ss liy any real anxiety for the proper balance of our Institutions,—a point as to which neither of these gentlemen has been remarked for his scruples heretofore. From the 31st Maine. A correspondent of the Lewiston Journal, who writes from before Petersburg, under date of Aug. 31, says: ‘‘Immediately after the fort was blown up our brigade (2d) advanced at double quick aud passed thtough the openiug made in the mit, the 9th New Hampshire aud the 31st Maine leaning in the charge, other troops fol lowing in quick succession, among w hom was ihe gallant 32d Maine, led by their brave Col. Wentworth, who was wounded, hut nut seii ouaiy it is hoped. Our Col. White, who has beeu iu all the bailies of this campaign, main tained his reputation for coolness and bravery. He was taken prisoner, hut not wuuuded as at first reported. The 31st went into action with a'-out 135 mu-kets and came out with about twenty-five or thirty and oue commis sioned officer (Capt. Drane). who Is in com mand of the remnant of the regiment. We feel lully the loss of our kind and brave Col mud, but we also feel that he has goue to Kichmoud only a little iu advance of us. We expect to join him there soon, hut not In the capacity of prisoners. Adjutant Allyn was taken prisooer and soon alter wouu led iu the thigh, fracturing the bone badly. After he was wouuded the rebels left him, and he c aw led away Into our lines and was brought off the field. He has since died. He was a brave and efficient officer, ami in his death we feci that we have sustained a great loss.” A National Loan Association.—The Washington Crltunicle makes an excellent suggestion, which, if followed up by proper action, will be of immense service to the whole country, as it is of decided interest to every true hearted cilizej. It proposes the establishment of a National Loan Associa tiou, in which the payment quarterly of a certain limited sum—say live or ten dollars— will secure in.‘Ulberahip,so as to placo it with in the reach of all, however moderate their iucomes. There are hundreds and thousands of men throughout the couulry, especially clerk.-, artisans and farmers, who would be glad of a chance of a-si»tiug the treasury ol the nation Item their small means, who could never manage to save a sufficient amount Irom their weekly or monthly earn ings to invest iu Government bonds; and there are many women si utlarly circumstanc ed. To sucu person.-, the opportunity of pro fitably and salely invtslitg their lUtplua money, and, at ttie same tun ■, ol as-isllug the Government in the most practical and accept able of methods, should lie extremely wel come. The advantage of such investments would lie their entire security, t|je faith of the , l'oiled Slates being pledged lor their redemp tion. The idea is too good to be abandoned. The Philadelphia Prtas says, at least one thousand persona could be found iu that city who would be willing to subscribe the suui ol live dollars per quaiter, interest, of course, being allowed. It public meetings should be held, such association? might readily be or ganiz-'d, and, wiili tln-ir mainagement corn mi i ted to the hands of trustworthy men, it could not fail ol being of vast service to the national credit and finances. A correspondent of the New Tork Evening Post, writing from Siaraiogi, says: Kobert Lincoln, the President’s son, is here, and it is related of him, by way of show ing that he is a chip of the old block, that when somebody asked him it lie w as a relative ol the Presideut.be answered, “Distant; about four hundred miles!” The smallest approach to a witty remark goes for a great deal in Saratoga in the summer sea-on. i hate heard the story six times in two day*. ’1 he young gentleman is just out of Hut vard College, and is a polite ami popular youth. x ne same writer says mat me novel enter prise of erecting a Saratoga Opera House is fairly under way, aud the frequenters of the Springs have subscribed liberally lor its sup port. The foreign element in Saratoga socie ty, rich and open-handed, grudges nothing to insure the passing tile botseesou genially,aud no appeal is more grateful to the Spanish aud Cuban ear, than that which speaks through song. At the “Union” alone there are Span ish and Cuban families numbering m arly tao hundred souls. The probable cost of the new Opera House will be $30,000. They are hav |ng gay times at Saratoga.
