The subject of this notice died on the nigh of the 14th inst., at his summer residence a Glen Cove, alter a brief and painful illness Mr. Brown was the second son of the Hon John B. Brown, of this city! He was horn a rortiand on the 28th of October, 1830, am was graduated, with the highest honors of hii class, at Bowdoin College in the year 1850 In the autumn of 1800 he was married to Miai Emily Kemble Oliver, daughter of the Hon H. K. Oliver, Treasurer of the Bute of Massa chusetts. * It cannot be objected to the succeeding re marks concerning the life and character o this young man, that they are merely the ut terauces ol Iriendship; because most wht have encountered and known him as a slu dent, a citizen and a man of business, hav* not failed to cherish towards him sentiment! of regard aud respect. At College he pur sued such habits and developed such elements of character as won for him the warmest friendship of ail his classmates, and the es teem and confidence of his instructors. Later years served only to fulfill the promise of his college life, aud exhibited him a man of pure and spotless character, a warm and generous nature, a retiued and cultivated taste, aud a judgment that was correct and mature. Be fore ttfiranf'lntr tn a fiirfhnr nniimnrMf inn nf the incidents of his life, so short, yet interest ing and useful in so high a degree, 1 cannot refrain from the inenliou of a single character istic that shone prominent in every occasion when itj manifestation became necessary or appropriate. He was possessed of a patriot ism that quailed before no opposition, and could uot be dampened or cooled by disaster. Sometime after leaving college, in company with his parents and sister, be passed the larger portion of a year in a tour of the Con tinent of Europe, and after bis return became a member of the house of John B. Brown <fc Sons, with which he was associated at the time of his decease. During the comparitive )y brief period of his business life, Mr. Brown had aaaociated himsell trith the religious, ed ucational and mercantile interests of the com munity. In the present whirlpool and de rangement of our national affairs, men who move and labor in the retired and peaceful walks of life may be passed without particular remarks; but a few years have proved Mr. Brown’s to be one of those pure, quiet, unob trusive but beneficial characters, upon which society can always with safety rely, with whom it can entrust its most essential inter ests, and a mau whose loss it cannot hut feel and deplore. To the reputation of a correct, reliable and highly informed merchant he add ed the ornaments of a gentleman, a scholar and a man of letters. Besides the poignant grief of his immediate family and relatives' there is a sorrow, consequent upon his de cease, common to a wide circle of friends and acquaintances, that for many a day will recur, simultaneously with the recollectiou of the good the useful aud the upright youDg man. _ H. American Institute of Instruction. The thirty-fifth aunual meeting of the Amer ican Institute of Instruction will commence in this city to-day, and continue three days.— This association has its centre in Boston, hold ing its annual meetings in some other part of New England, which have always been|numer ously attended and very interesting. It is ex pected there will be from four hundred to six hundred persons from all parts of the couutry in attendance during the time the meeting is being held. Several distinguished gentlemen from the Western Slates have arrived, aud otliers will come in by the different routes to day. It is rarely the case that our city is fav ored with the presence of so many literary men and women as will be present at this meeting, and it is hoped and expected that our citizens will give them such a reception aud entertainment as will impress them favor ably with the hospitality and warm-hearted ness of the people of the Pine Tree State.

Theatre.—Mr. McKean, lluchuuun.—1The celebrated tragedian and comediau made his debut last evening, and was warmly welcomed by a fashionable audience. Ills daughter Miss Virginia Buchanan, evidently made a sensation in the character of Lady Gay Span ker. This evening both of these artists ap pear in Shakespeare's tragedy of Richard III Of Mr. McKeau Buchanan's Richard the Liv erpool Herald says: Tlitatre Royal.—Mr. McKean Buchanar made his last appearance in the character o Richard 111. The opening scenes were wel conceived and executed. The scene wilt Lady Anne was judiciously played; not ovei acted, yet sutliceutly "wheedling" to over come the scruples of a woman whose falhei and husband he had murdered. The mors stirriug portions of tl,e character were lull o fire and earnestness, without degenerating into rant, Rod Mr. Buchanan’s flue voice sue noble figure told well amidst the bustle whei Richard is fighting for the crowu. No actoi of the present day can approach Mm in thii part. It is a magnificent rendering of Shake speure’s conception, and second only to un, of Edmund Keen.

Temperance Meeting in Scarborough. To the Editor of U« Vrtj» The friends of Temperance In Cumberlanc County, propose to meet at Duns'.an’a Cor ner to-morrow (Wednesday) afternoon, at S o’clock, to see what can be done for the pro motion of the cause. There Is no excuse for telling rum, and none for drinking. The traffic is outlawed and the use is promiscuous. Ooe violates civil law. the other moral. No rumseller. t whose heart is not adamantine, is at ease in the business, ami every rum driuker admits that the use is injurious. What sense then is there in selling or drinking it? Why be a slave to mammon or appetite? 'I lie evils which flow from intoxicating drinks are enormous. They are the direct, palpable cause of many, and the iudirect ) source of most of the troubles w hich afflict , society. This is either true or untrue. If true how important, and how loudly it calls upon : all who would benefit the community to en gage in the glorious wotk, or renew their ef forts. If untrue, it is not less important, and challenges those who sell or driuk to come forward and justify the traffic or use. Indeed they are hereby invited to meet their oppo nents under the pledge that they shall be treated courteously, and have an equal share of the time. But will they come, or failing, do they thus confess that the friends of Temperance are in the right, and themselves in the wrong? The just inference, I submit, leaves them in a dis putable position.

Cumberland County Temperance Conven tion, The next meeting of the Cumberland Coun ty Temperance Convention will be held at Dunstan’s Corner Scarboro’, oa Wednesday 17th iust., commencing at 2 o’clock in the af | ternoou and continuing through the evening. The necessity for doing something to stay the increasing tide of intemperauce is apparent in every city and village in our State and much mnrn an in nlkow tl..s 11 41 rected labor accomplishes nothing in saving the drunkard Irom the drunkard’s path, would be to deny the clearest evidence of his tory and our own observation. The suffer 1 iug, immorality and crime caused directly by intemperance fully justilies the urgent ca'l for the triends of Temperance to meet and take counsel together far the purpose of de ' vising some way to more effectually check its | progress. Gen. Xeai Dow and other earnest friends of Temperance are expected to be at Scarboro’ on Wednesday.

Thomas Harmon.—This gentleman, so long and favorably known to our oldest citi zens, entered upon his ninety-third year on the first day of July last. He is in excellent health, and walks from bis residence du Spring street to Exchange street twice a day. For many years, until quite recently, he drew a hand cart through our streefs, aDd was not ed for his genial and accommodating spirit. Good habits and even temper have doubtless mainly contributed to bis longevity. Long may be wave. U. S. Gunboat Pontooscc, George A Stevens, Lieut. Commanding, put iuto this port yesterday afternoon, for a brand pilot, and expected to leave iu the course of the uight for the eastward. She is searching for the pirate Tallahassee. She left New York Friday night last at 9 o’clock, and has been cruising ever since. A large number of spais and burnt pieces of wreck were passed and quite a number of veasels were overhauled. Assaulting an Officer.—Police officer Gerts was yesterday assaulted by Thomas Collins, against whom he had a warrant of ariest for abusing bis wife. Coliins got the "billy” of the officer and assaulted him in a desperate manner. Mr. Gerts held on to him until assistance arrived, and the fellow was taken to the lockup. Turnips.—Mr. Cyrus Thurlow, of the firm of King, Thurlow <fc Co., presented us yester day with some of the best and handsomest turnips that have been brought to tills market.

Yours, &c , P. II. Hall, Sec. of Caucus. 1 Appointment.—We understand that Fred. E. Upton, sou of Elijah Upton, Esq., the City Clerk of Bath, has been appointed by Hon. Sidney Perbain a cadet to the Naval School at Newport. This is a high compliment to the young man, for Mr. Perham refused to appoint any one until he had been subjected to a thorough examination before a board of inquisitors. Hon. John II. Kick.—We are gratified to learn that this gentleman, the lailhful and efficient Representative ol the 4th Congres sional District, is likely to be renominated without opposition. We ate glad to see a growing disposition to retain good men in such positions, instead of dropping them just at the moment their experience renders them influential for the State’s benefit. John Bull,8 Cp.oakino.—'The London correspondent of the New York Tribuue says the English aristocracts’ comments on the re cent reli 1 raid into Maryland, if well conden sed, would result in the essence of screeh owl or decoction of raven, like lialph Nickleby’s voice in the ear of Mr. Mantalini, its’ nothing but “croak! croak! a dein’d horrid croaking.” They fondly believed Washington, Philadei | pbin and Boston would be taken, aud that the . North was as good as taken and the rebellion , triumphant. These old aristocrats will have to wait awhile longer ere such hopes can be ( turned into fruition. By the indulgence ol suck feelings towards our republic they are °“ly making work for repeutauce. There is , a day coming when these accounts must be all " settled. 2 ! ___ i- .

The Loudon Times publishes a letter from Richmond, under date of June 27tb. Tue writer expresses a belief that Gen. Grant knows full well that neither Petersburg nor Richmond can be taken by light, and that he will make no more onslaughts on Confederate breastworks, hut quietly assume the defensive. He says it is a question of subsistence, hut ; Richmond cau never he starved out until the i two railroads front the South, as well the 1 James river canal aud the railroad from the the North cun be utterly annihilated, which, j lie contends. Grant is not. strong cuough to | do. He admits that Gram’s operations may occasionally cause the Confederate army to , be placed upon half rations, but this will not i affect the result.

The citizens of Bangor received the Con- j gressional Committee st the City Hall at 10.30 this morning, Mayor S. 11. Dale presiding.— S. C. Hatch, Esq., of Bangor, presented the party to the Mayor, who received them most cordially. Members from each Slate repre sented, responded happily, and the party then proceeded to the house ol Mayor Dale, where they partook of an elegant collation. At three o'clock in the afternoon the party ' proceeded, by invitation of Joint \V. Veazie, j Esq., agent of the Oldtown Railroad, to In dian Oldtown, where llie Indians greeted their j arrival by u salute of artillery. The Indians had prepared a big gondola, with a flying American flag, to lake the party to the island. ’ They were formerly received by Governor Joseph Aitteon and Lieut.Gov. John Neptune, the latter beiug one hundred and six years old. Gov. Aitteon, with dignity, received the party who were ceremoniously presented, and | through his counsellor, Joseph Nicola, ad dressed them, referring to his people meeting a commission fifty-six years ago, to aell their lands; thanking God that a remnant of his people were left to meet this commission from the Great Father, tlis tribe bad been reduc ed through internal dis>eusions. Hu trusted our. great nation would never be reduced through such a cause, to such a miserable remuaot. He wishe'd the Committee to remember the Penobscot’s, in friendship, to the President.— He said we are reduced by war, this little tribe of six hundred souls, having sent twenty warriors iuto the National armies. Rut your cause is just, being to free those in bondage. The prayers of our tribe will go with you for \ your safe return. Appropriate responses were made by Hon. John U. Rice and other*. Returning to Oldtown the party visited the immense saw mills and partook ol' a collation prepared by the citizens. At six o'clock the part y returned to Bangor, the Indians tiring a parting salute from the island. This evening a brilliant levee is being given at Norembega Hall, in honor of the party. We leave at eight o’clock to morrow morn- , ine, for Bucksport, Castine and Belfast. The whole expedition is under the charge of Capt. Win. Flowers of Bangui, and the arranements are admirable.

People ill the northwestern counties have been uiuidered, the crops destroyed and slock driven off. Evidence accumulates that nearly all the , tribts on the plaius have banded together for war. Gen. Blunt has issued orders that no arms or ammunitiou shall be sold them, and has notified all officers, having authority over the Indians, not to allow them to leave their res ervations for the West, and that such acts will be taken os proof of hostility and tasated ac cordingly. _ From Atlanta—Progress of the Siege.
