The Congressional Committee on the De fenses of our North Eastern Frontier, with other members ol Congress and invited guests, assembled at the Preble House at nine o'clock yesterday inoruing. They were joined by the editors and publishers of this State, who were present in the city, and then proceeded to the City Hall, where they were introduced to the Mayor aud City Authorities,and such citizens as were present. After an interchange of mutual good Icel ings for an hour, the committee, at the invita tion of some of our citizeus, rode aiound the city, taking particular observations of all the beautiful scenes aud poiuts that came under their notice. VISIT TO FOBTS GORGES AND PREBLE. At halt past twelve o'clock,in company with the Mayor and City Council and a large num ber of citizens, they embarked on board the government steamer Tyro for the purpose of inspecting the harbor and fortifications. Maj. Thomas L. Casey, U. S. Kugineer, and Capt. Inman, U. S. Airay, had the guidance of the parly. They proceeded direct to Fort Gorges, where the whole party landed—if a lauding cau be effected on nolid granite—nod spent about an hour and a half in inspecting that strong and—destined to be—almost impreg nable fortifications. Major Casey, who has charge of the works, ordered a Cabinet salute in honor of Mr. Sec wkn «k/> .It. V...A owing to circumstances he could uot conve niently control, only “constructively” a mem ber of the party. The ordnance used in Bring the salute were the seven and eleven inch mounted guns, fifteen in ail. Their reverber ations waked up the echoes from all quarters, and might havetjggested to the uelihbo hjod another possible Alabama and Kearsarge affair. Fort Gorges, wheu completed, will mount ninety-seven guns, of very heavy cali ber. The fortification elicited the warmest commendations from gentlemen competent to pass judgment, and Major Casey was compli mented on all hands for the thoroughness with which be is doiug bis work. lie-embarking, the party proceeded to Fort Preble, by invitation of the accomplished commander of that post—Major Andrews— who met them at Gorges. We noticed the following Members of Con gress:— Mr. Morrill, of Vt., Mr. Hale, or Pa., Mr. Perry, of X. J., Mr. Ames, of Mass., Mr. Patterson, of X. H., and Messrs, llice and Perham, of this State. Besides these there were Mr. Hilgard, of the Coast Survey, Wash ington; Mr. Johnson, of Middletown, Ct, a distinguished Civil Engineer; Ex-Gov. Good win, of X. H.; Hon. Horatio King, of Wash ington ; President Woods, of Bowdoiu Col lege; Kev. Mr. Ballard, of Brunswick; Bev. Mr. Haskell, of Boston; Hon. Xoah Woods, of Bangor, the Collector of the Port, the Mayor of the city, members of the City Gov ernment, and many other Invited guests, citi zens of Portlaud and others, with representa tives of the Herald and Tribune of Xew York City aud several papers of this State. Arrived at Fort Preble, the party partook of a bountiful collation, which was discussed with a relish known only to those who have whetted their appetites by full inspirations of fresh air, such as fans the face of old ocean. After a full inspection of the fort and a pleas ant season speut in listening to the soul-stir ring strains of the Band of the 17th Infantry, which played some of the choicest natioual airs, the party was allowed the rare pleasure of witnessing a specimen of target practice with the 100-pound Parrotts, at a range of one mi'e and a sixteenth. This was perfectly sat isfactory, and calculated to impress ail with the fact that a Parrott shell or solid shot of that size would be uo comfortable visitor to be received uuannouoced ou board an enemy’s vessel attempting to enter the harbor. There are several l.Viucb guns mounted en barbette at Fort Preble, the weight of which Is about tweuly-five tons each. Their solid shot, lying stacked up, looked quite tempting, but we apprehend none of them were iecreu-d In the pockets of the company, and thus filched from Uncle Sam. They weigh about 600 pounds each. After seeing the guard inspected, reviewed and mounted, the party again embarked, and sailed back to the city, arriving about six o'clock, all apparently well pleased with the excursion, and delighted with the splendid panorama afforded by our harbor and islands in their August attire. The party was under no small obligations to Col. L. B. Smith for his uureiniltiug efforts to contribute to their en joyment and to make everything pass off suc cessfully. To-day, at eleven o’clock precisely, the party will embark at Custom House Wharf for the Islands aud the Clam Bskc. Delay will be dangerous. LEVEE. The Levee given by the Merchants and others of the city, at the new City Hall last eveulng, was, in many particulars, one of the most brilliant affairs of the season. The at tendance of naval aud military officers in uni form was much larger than usual, which, with the array of grace and beauty, gave an ap pearance of splendor aud brilliancy of the most pleasing character. The distinguished visitors from other Stales, as well as those of our own State, entered into the spirit ol the occasion,and either kept time to the music of Poppeuburg's Hand or looked on with evident satisfaction. Refreshments were provided on the most liberal scale, all having an opportu nity to partake as Ireely as their capacity would admit of. The Editorial fraternity were In clover; with lemonade, Ice cream, cake, et cetera* for the stomach, with eyes feasting on the beauty and fashion of Portland, they were tempted to indulge more freely and to a later hour than such staid, prudent men are expect ed to do. Nothing was wanting on the part of the committee who had the matter in charge to render the occasion one that will l>e re mem lie red with pleasure by visitors of our own and from other States. S. or T. Excursion.— Portland Division No. 05 S. of T., will make an excursion to Sa co River on Tuesday, over the York and Cumberland Railroad. Chandler’s Quadrille band, wiih Chandler himself to lead otf, will furnish the music for the occasion. No effbi t will be spared to make this one of the most entertaining excursions of the season. See advertisement. Excursion to the Islands.—The annual excursion of the Spiritual Association and frieuds, to the islands, takes place to-day.— Ttie programme is an attractive one, and we have no doubt it will be carried out to the letter. They leave Galt’s wharf at 8 I t o'clock, returuing at 5 1-2 o'clock. The Fountain ok Mineral Waters - This is found pure and full atCrosman & Co.'s Middle street. Their Vichy and Kissenger waters are excellent and health giviug, iu this warm weather, and their soda lonntain is al ways sparkling. Sale ok a Vessel.—The hark Minnesota, launched a short time since at Cape Elizabeth about 430 tons burthen—built by Mr. Picket! for Capt. Fitts and others—was sold on Tuet day, to parties in Boston, for $43,000, cash. For the Front.—About one hundred vet erans from Camp Berry left In the steamel for Boston, last evening.

Mobile, Aug. 8th.—It is painfully humiliat ing to auuouuce the surrender of Fort Gaines at half-pasti) o’clock this morning by Col. Charles Anderson, of the 21st Alabama regi ment. This powerful woik was provisoned for six months, and with a garrison of 600 men. He communicated with the enemy’s fleet by flag of truce with the sanction ol Gen. Page. Gen. Page inquired by signal what his purpose was, hut received no answer. His attention was attracted by signal guns. Gen. Page repeatedly telegraphed, “Hold on to your fort.” The same night lie visited Fort Gaines and found Anderson on board the Yankee fleet, arranging terms of recapitula tion. lie left peremptory orders for Ander son, on his return, not to surrender the fort, and relieved him of his command. Fort Mor gan signalled this morning, but no answer was received, except the hoisting of the Yan kee flag over the ramparts of Fort Galues. Audersou’s conduct is officially prououuced inexplicable and shameful. Dispatches just received irom Gen. Sheri dan report his forces moving against the ene my up the Shenandoah. At 4 P. M. they were skirmishing about ten miles from Winchester. This morning Gen. Graut reported the ex plosion of an ordmnee boat yesterday, loaded with ammunition, at City Point wharf.
