Cottceellor—Sewall C. Strou*. Visit to Fort Scammel, and Glam-Bake Pursuant to previous arrangement, the Con gressional Committee, with a large party ot ladies and gentlemen from this city and other parts of the State, made a visit of inspection yesterday to Fort Scammel. The party left Custom House Wharf at any time (rom eleven to twelve o’clock, the place of rendezvous be ing some hundred yards more or less off iu the harbor, where the cutter J. C. Dobbin rode at anchor in the stream. The cutter was sandwiched between the steamers Tyro and Marcena Johnson, the party tilling the decks and saloons of all three, and thus side by side, lashed together, they proceeded to House Island, on which is situated Fort Scammel, with its barbette guns of various sizes, Irom twelve pounders up to the 15-inch calibre of the latest issue. As the party tiled up over the parapets they soon discovered on the low ground near the water, facing the C'ape shore, caldrons of chowder in process ol cooking, large boilers of steaming coffee, crates of ware distributed on rough tables, and various preparations aii easy of explanation to even the uniniated, ex cept a large Ore burning upon a pavement of round stoues:—that was a mystery. The altar was plainly erected and the Are kindle 1, but where and what was the offering? Curi osity drew the crowd to the spot. Soon the mystery was solved. The burning brands were raked off, the healed stoues were covered with wet sea weed, freshly gathered,and upon this, through which the hot steam ascended, baskets of lice loosiers were euipueii, iiiese were completely covered by a cart-load of newly-dug clams, more sea-weed was added, ears of green corn, baskets of new potatoes, boxes of eggs, etc., were placed upon the pile, lire whole was cov ered with canvass, then more sea-weed was piled on top, and the heap was left for half an hour to steam. This was a clam-bake, a Yan kee institution, imported iuto this State from Rhode Island, new to large numbers of those present, especially from the country and gen tlemen from the far West and Southwest. When it w:.s referred to as a Yankee inven tion, Gen. Gantt, who was present, remarked that he believed it was fashionable now to consider everything “Yankee" that was op posed to Jeff. Davis. The “Bake” was opened and was found to be done in the most perfect manner, and for half an hour, from the appearance of the crowd, a stranger would naturally infer that they cither had eaten nothing for a week, or that they were extremely solicitous to know, from actual experience, how edibles prepared in that novel way would affect the palate. The judgment was unanimous, and the “Bake” was voted A 1, the chowder do, and the coffee AA 1. Thus ended the clam-bake; thus disappeared the bi-valves, and doubtless in all that crowd there was none of the Creator's w orks which lay nearer their hearts, for the next few hours, than that truly con strvaUve and democratic molusk—the clam; conservative in that he never changes his po sition, always sticks to the ways of his ances tors, eschewing all innovations, and demo cratic in that lie cares not a tinker's analb » «rua whether a big tlsb flaps bis flukes in his & face or the miuew tribes play their small pranks under his very no6e. None of these things move him; be looks with equal favor or equal contempt upon all. The afternoon was spent in rationally sit ting upon "the grass in the shade of the build ings. in walking about the parapets, in look ing into the big guns and wouderiug how big a man could crawl into tliem, or in listening to the thrilling notes of the Band of the 17th Infantry, or in tripping the light fantastic toe on one of the floors extemporized for the oc casion. Meantime the mcmliers of the Con gressional Committee wept on board the frig ate Sabine, and at an early hour the party were taken back to the city in installments by the small steamers. It was a delightful day, uxl all seemed pleased with its pleasant recre ations. In addition to the distinguished gentlemen who went down the harbor the day before, we noticed Secretary Fessenden, Gen. E. W. Gantt of Arkansas, Mr. Iiaistead of New Jersey, and others whose names have escaped our recollection. A large number of editors of papers in this State were of the party, and representatives of the Boston Daily Adver tiser, New York Evening Post and Journal of Commerce, were added to those who repre sented papers outside of the State on the pre vious excursion. At 8 o'clock this morning the Committee, with others who have been invited to make the excursion, will start from Atlantic wharf, visit Fort Fopham, proceed up Sheepscot river to Wiscasset, and then return to Bath, where they will stop to-night. On Saturday they will proceed from Bath to Bangor, touching at some points on Uie route. U. S District Court John Redpath et als. vs. Schooner Jennie Morton. This is a libel against said schoonei for damage to sugars shipped on board tbe schooner by Mver Ulms & Co., at Matanzas in March last, to be delivered to libellants 01 their agents at the wharf of the Grand Trunk Railway Co. in this city. It is alleged that the sugars were shipped io good order, but ic consequence of negligence of those in charge of the vessel—by insufficient dunnage and tin seaworthiness of the vessel, and not by ibt perils of the sea—the sugars were greatly damaged on the voyage, to the amount o $8,000. The respondents allege that all the damagi that occurred to the sugars, after they wert ■hipped, was occasioned by the perils of th< aes. The case was referred to Heory W.

Various resolutions of thanks were adopted, and the meeting adjourned sine die. TiiEATiit:.—We are pleased to learn that Mr. Myers has effected au engagement with the world-renowned tragedian aud cornmc dian, McKean Buchanan, and his beautiful and accomplished daughter, Miss Virginia Buchanan, who will make their tlrst appear ance in Portland on Monday evening uext.— i As it tnay be of interest to the Theatrical Pub lic to know some of the antecedents of these artistes, wc give a brief biography and a few | criticisms. Mr. Buchanan was born in the city of Phil adelphia, on the 2Mh of February, 18215. His genealogy, tracing it back lor a considerable period, belougs to a clan of bouny Scotchmen, aud nis grandfather, Thomas McKean, was one of the signers of the Declaration of Inde pendence. lie is also related to James Bu chanan, ex-Piesideut ol the United States.— He was educated for the Navy, aud for four years served as midshipman on the West In dia slatiou; but the monotony ol a home na val life not iicing adapted to.his active habits, lie resigned his commission and engaged in the pursuit of a shipping merchant in the city ol New Orleans. While in this capacity, he bestowed his leisure in the cultivation of the line arts,aud especially the histrionic,'or which, from boy hood, he had a strong aud decided affection. About this time be caused to be erec ed a magnificent edifice in New Orleans, for the perlo: mauce of select theatricals, call ed ’‘Louisiana Histrionic Association,”—prob ably tile largest private theatre in the world— ami shortly afterwards was elected President of the Association, numbering some live hun dred active and hott wary members, among whom were the wealthiest and most respect able citizens of the Crescent City. It was here, while serving as director «t these fash ionable w inter theatiicals, that Mr. Buchanan displayed those important requisites aud splen did talents for ail actor which induced his friends to persuade him to adopt the stage as a profession. But the aspirant was not too easily forced upon a new scene of action, know ing full well the indomitable energy aud genius required to ascend the temple of dra matic fame. He diligently pursued his stud hs in the art, essayed new parts at the Asso ciation, and in short, exhibited so much versatile taste and talent in his iinper ■ sotiations that destiny at length claimed his name, aud enrolled it on the scroll of the reg 1 ular drama. His friends hailed his determina ' tion with the most unfeigned delight, and in l token of their concurrence preferred him a grand complimentary benefit, at St. Charles Theatre, on the "ill of Jauuary, 1S50. when he made his professional debut as Hamlet, and achieved a triumph of the most satisfactory character. Soon after this he visited the prin cipal cities of the United Slates, Great Brit ain and Australia, and everywhere receives approval aud encouragement of the press and public. Mr. Buchanan has labored diligently deni” over the midnight bard. He claims to be a Shaksperian actor, and the correctness of his readings, and the learning be manifests, are a just endorsement to his pretensions in this respect. He has given his whole soul— so to speak—to his art, and labors unremit iuglv in those glorious mines of knowledge that open to the devoted student. On tin boards he is self possessed, elegant and impres sive; in the grand qualifications, Mr. Buchanan is eminently gifted. His voice, manner, Ix-ar ing, form and carriage are all in his tavor.— FT-- can look a hero, ami talk like one— an ar gument which Schlegal digerns a strong ba | sis.—[Court Journal. Benefit Njoht.—1To night Kate Reig nolds takes her benefit at the Theatre, and two excellent plays have been selected for the occasion. It is the last opportunity our citi ; zens will have, for a long time, to witness her versatile power.

Washington, Aug. 11. A letter from City Point dated the lutli, says: About 11 o’clock yesterday morning a noise resembling the explosion of a magazine was heard attlie Headquarters of the Army of the Potomac. During tlie afternoon word came that a boat loaded w ith ammunition had exploded at City Point, causing a frightful loss ot lile and great destruction ol property. When the correspondent of the Associated Press reached the scene of the disaster, a spectacle presented itself utterly indescriba ble. Buildings demolished, tents thrown down, and horses killed iu every direction. The de pot building Lhat had just been completed, was a mass ol ruins, while the ground lor hun dreds of yards, was covered with property of every description. The dead and wounded had been extricated lrom the ruius and car ried some distance back, the former for burial and the latter to be sent to the hospitals. The boat, loaded w ith various kinds of am muui'ion, was being unloaded by negroes ol the Quartermaster’s Department, nearly one hundred in number, and the only theory ad vanced as to the cause of the calamity is that a shell must have been dropped by one of them, thus communicating tire to the entire mass. The noise lasted about thirty minutes. Witnesses say that the shock was felt for a long distance. On the side of the road in front of the land ing were located a number ol otlices and stores, among them Hie post-olllce and Ad ams’express oilice, which were almost entire ly blown down. Til * large number of persons occupying them miraculously escaped with slight bruises. In the rear of these buildings is a steep bank covered with tents on the sum mit, occupied chiefly by colored laborers and their families. Had the ground been level the loeS of lile would have been greater. Shells, balls and shut ot every kind struck this bank in a perfect shower, w-hile tbe ground in the vicinity is actually covered with all kinds of stores. A large number of old saddles and pieces of harness are among the debris. A boat loaded with stores lying alongside was tom to nieces, a large portion being raised completely out ot the water anil thrown through the storehouse on the dock. Capt. Benedict and Capt. Ames, of the Commissary Department, were in the build ing and buried beneath the ruins, but alter considerable difficulty were extricated, neith er being fatally injured, although a good deal bruised. Capt. Daniel D. Willey, who was in his tent quite a distance from the spot, was struck in tue head by a piece of shell and injured, though not dangerously. Mr. McKee, his clerk, was severely injured and cannot recov er. A. M. Baxter, a citizen of Cold Spring, was killed. Lieut. Fane, of the navy was slightly injur ed. A citizen named Wright was slightly in jured. James Thorp, a clerk in the Orduance Office, was killed. Mr. Fay, of the Sanitary Commission, was slightly injured. Richard Stoue, a citizen, was killed. Mr. Spencer, Re lief Agent, was slightly injured. The casualties are believed to he fifty killed ami about one hundred wounded. A number of bodies of colored persons were found be side lho»e above mentioned, and there are six teen in Post hospital, while others are scatter ed in different localities. Twenty-live colored men, more or less wounded, were taken to the colored hospital, where several amputations have been per formed. Five shells passed through the Sanitary Commission boat, but fortunately no one was injured. It Is believed that many bodies were blown into the river, which will never be re covered. Capt. Schuyler the Provost Mar shal, who was sitting on the top ot the river's bank, was lilted up and blown a distance of ten or twelve leet, receiving a shower of sheila around him, but strange to say escaped with out a acra'ch. Our loss is put down by him at about 30 killed and 70 or HO wounded, 13 of the killed being soldiers. Xothiug has as yet been discovered as to the cause of the calam ity. At the commissary department six men are known to lie killed and some twenty-five wounded. Three men belonging to the rail road were injured. The loss of property is not known, but will be large. Thu 30th X. V. Volunteers lost six killed and seventeen wounded. The 14Hth Ohio lost three killed aud four wounded. The boat Lewis caught lire, when a wreck ing tug ran her ashore anil extending her hose put six streams on the fire and extinguished it. thus saving a large amount of ammunition. Considerable firing is going on in front this morning. One of our gunboats opened dur the night ai d threw a number of shells at what was supposed to be a uioviug rebel force.

Inaiaii nrprraatmn* on I itormtd Train*.* iii'J of Troup* for I ml in it Service, Den ver City, Aug. 10. Although the Indians have been very troublesome of late in attacking unarmed trains and murdering emigrants unable to de lend themselves, there has been no attack upon the mail coaches, which now run regu larly both ways. The mails were ordered*to be stopped at Atchison and this place to-day, by the Superintendent of the overland line, , owing to the stock being run otf Iroai some of the stations, but it is believed that our i troops are being so distributed along the line as will fully protect it. . Omaua City, Nebraska, Aug. 11. Hostile marauding Indians infest the whole line from Fort Kearney to South Pass, a dis tance ol 300 miles, and daily commit outrages making lorages on slock aud burning trains. A great number of travellers are stopping at Fort Kearney lor protection. The Indians in bands of from ten to one hundred, move with celerity, and possessing thorough knowledge of the country, elude pursuit. The telegraph is still in good order. W. H.S. I luges, Adj. Gen. of Nebraska, has issued an order calling lor two regiments of mounted infantry lor Indian service, to serve for four months. The following is the address of Governor Saunders, to the citixeus of Nebraska: “The news from our Western border is alarming. Numerous traius of emigrants and freights have been attacked and the owners killed, wagons destroyed, and stock run off. No less than four different points, on the route between onr territory and Denver, were at tacked in one day. Indians are known to be infesting these roads for a distance of several hundred miles. All available government troops have been sent forward. We must have more men in order to punish these savages and give seceri ty to our frontier settlers. In order to mpet the want I have thought proper to call the able bodied militia of the territory to organ ise a few companies of minute men. Men who can and will if necessary move at a mo ments warning to the scene of depredallous ami assist in punishing the marauders and rohliers, and driving them from the country. I make this appieal to the people, confident that it w ill be responded to promptly aud with willingness on their part. From WanhiHyton. Washinuton, Aug. li.
