The Lumber City,at this sea son of the year decked nut In beautiful appar el, Is as quiet as a small Xew England village. Her penple believe in churches as well as In timber lands, and in worshipping the Moat High upon his holy day as well as pursuing the shadows of fickle fortune the rest of (he week. I have already informed the readers of the Press of the arrival of the Mahouiug at this place very late Saturday evening. The reader is invited to go back to Rockland and more deliberately sail up the Bay from the Lime to the Lumber city. He baa our guaiantee that be shall not be sea-tick. Rockland quarries Its wealth from the ledges in the neighborhood of the city. Her lime Is known the Union over, and her lime kilns are the institutions of Ilia ttlaAa I had lima tn Innlr in nnnn hut nna and that what is known as the patent kiln. A large pit Is excavated in the hill-side and lined np with stones that wiii stand the continued action of Are. It is open at the top, to which access is bad on the back side or upon the high ground in the rear, where the broken •tone, carted from the quarries, is thrown in. At the bottom, on the front side, are furnaces In which the Ares are kept burning beneath the rock, so contrived with grates and supporting pillars that, as the rock becomes sutAcieutly burnt it caa be dumped still lower Into a re ceptacle from which it Is shoveled upon a pav ed Aoor to cool, preliminary to being put into casks. The kiln is of the capacity of perhaps a hundred aud Afly casks, and tequires when Arst lighted a Are for some thirty-six hours before it is “drawn,” or shoveled out. A "drawing” will make about thirty casks, and this amount is shoveled out once iu about A ve hours after the Arst “drawing,” an equal a mount of rock being thrown in upon the top to keep the kiln full. The wood used in burn ing is second growth while pine; at least that j la the kind I saw most of, and a very large quinlity Is demanded to keep even one patent kiluln active operation, night end day, through the season. Hockland is a substantial place of great wealth, beautifully situated, and commanding a full view of one of the finest sheets of water in the world,the water view being bounded by the Fox Islands some eight or ten miles dis- , tant. Some of her citisms are among the not ed men of the Slate, and have Ailed many Im portant places In her councils. Here, too was the home of the gallant Berry who fell at Chancellorville, and whose remains repose in the Cemtte y near the city. Near Kockland on the eastern outward bound passage is a very pretty redoubt or earth-work, thrown up last season aud mount ing several guns, to protect the approaches to the town. An hour’s steaming or less brings you in front of the beautiful little town of Camden, nestling on the shore at the foot of the Megunticook mouutain, an elevation of perhaps 1300 feet above the level or the bay. ! By the wafTtf you will not breathe it aloud to any of the parties in controversy, I will simply state that much of the capital derived from Rnzier’e Narrative of Weymouth’s early voyages, upon which the Popbamites and oth er antiquarians have erected their superstruc tures, depends upon the question whether cer tain mountains a«eu by Weymouth were the —mi ■■ i ' - -in ... ■ _1 . *1— White mountains In New Hampshire, or the Megunticook mountains on Penobscot Bay, and this is a question hotly contested, while still another school *f antiquarians maintain that it was neither of these two eminences, but a highland near or back of the head waters of the Georges river, which empties into the sea below Thoinaston. It would be well to settle such important foundation facts, before con sidering the present as a perverse generation, because they do not Bee sacredness in all the theories and auliquarian air-vastles which geu tlemrn who love to plow into such musty lore are disposed to build up. But this is aside. From Camden to Belfast—that gem set on the margin of the bay—and far beyond towards Fort Knox, the eye rests upon a pauorama ol natural beauty such as is seldom seeu in this or any other country. I heard Senator Ilaie of N. H. say, that from opposite Bucksport to Camden was one of the most beautiful sections of country that be ever passed through a magnificent drive the whole distance. The laud rises gently from the bay. and attains considerable heigh*, but it is covered with beautiful farms, the verdure of which is per fectly ravishiug to the eye. Fort Knox Is on an islaud in the Penobscot river, directly opposite Bucksport, and will be a fortification of great strength. It is not yet completed, though several heavy guus are mounted iu its casemates. The trip up the Penobscot was made in the eveuing, and tho’ the shores of the river are reputed to possess much natural beauty, for obvious reasons “ 1 couldn’t seu it.” Bangor is a beautiful city, and a place of great business and wealth. Its growth was the marvel of theagesome twenty-llveor thir ty years since, under the inspiration of the Eastern Land Speculation, of which the pres eut active generation, fortunately perhaps, know less than did their immediate predeces sors. Thirty years ago exactly it was the writer's fortune, then a full-fledged, green country boy. to see Bangor for the first time, and to spend some three months within the limits of her corporation. It was the year the Bangor House was opened. It was when the first May or was in his prime, and when the streets aud walks presented a surface not very inviting to nateut leathers or to those whose nether limbs were of unequal length. The city was almost literally a plowed field, undergoing the first upheaval to bring it to grade, and to reduce it to the beauty which it now present*. Thirty years'. What changes have come iu that time! The rolliking boy with hi* thick, matted, dark hair has changed to an elderly man of fifty, with head thinly covered with threads of sil ver; albeit a silver that commands no premi um in the youthful market. That then vigor ous Mayor, with most of the meu who toiled with him to plant the germ of the new city and level off the ground, now sleeps beneath the sod. Thirty years! In that lime it is not unreasonable to suppose the city has placed more of her population below than she has now above the surface of the earth; at auy rate, the underground city will very soon, if it is not already, become the most populous. Iu thirty years other hands will write her progress Sad thought, but cheering nevertheless, for who would outlive his usefulness, or his abili ty to do or say something for the world, as an equivalent for the subsistence he draws irom it? Beneficent institution this—the institu tion of death, “peculiar” to no people, the in heritance ot all, the safety-valve of the world against a surplus of decrepitude, feebleness, imbecility and decay. But a truce to such moralizing. It was my good fortune to-day to listen for the first time to a sermon, suited to thu limes, from Rev. Mr. Frolhingbam formerly of your city. Mr. Everett of the Unitarian Church, and Mr. Battles of the Univers&lisl are both a vay on their summer vacation, aud Mr. F. supplies the pulpit* of both in their absence; the Unitarian in the forenoon and the Unlver salist in the afternoon. It was at the latter where 1 heard him. It was an excellent dis course, delivered iu one of the most bcautilul church edifices in the State, accompanied by vocal and organic music to which the connois seur might listen with delight. To-morrow the Congressional Committee and their party are to be the lion visitors ol the city, aud after roaming about in tbe neigh borhood duriug the day, they will be met in Norombega by the lions and lionesses of this beautiful place. Tuesday morning they will leave for the East. Tuesday another and different show Is to come off, under a large cauvass tent imported from Boston for the occasion. It will be a convention of the genus rerpent, popularly anJ appropriately known as the Copperheads Their hissing has bccotn • comparatively harm less, and their slime will mix wt<h other filth, as the tent i9 erected on low ground. Smjkwinr. Secretary Fessenden. VTe copy the following from the National Intelligencer, a journal, we are sorry to know, whose proclivities are by no meaus in the right direction ao far as its politics are con cerned. We wish all its editorials were as just, patriotic aud truthful, as the one we copy below. It does no more than justice to Mr. Fesseuden, aud we should rejoice if it would mete out equal justice to all our public servants, but that may be too much to expect from its present editors: Tue Secretary of the Treasury left the seat of government lor his home iu Maine some leu or twelve days ago, aud some days afier bis arrival in I’oitland the Press of that city contained an editorial article in reference to him, a portion of which, as it indicates his views and intentions and bears on public at lairs, we copy for the beuelit of our readers, as follows: , “We will state what we learned from Mr. Fessenden himself: that be considers his oc cupat cy ot a seal iu the Cabinet as a mere temporary tiling; he does not consider his strength adequate to the laborious and unre mitting duties ol the place, and he will hold it only t ii lie cau resign w ithout detriment to the public Serv ice. The best I'eeliug exists br tweeu him and President Lincoln, and his resignation at a suitable time will not be re garded as a discourtesy by the EX' culive. 1 wil> lie seeu, the.eloie, that our Slate is not necessarily to tie deprived of Mr. Fessenden's distinguished abilities aud eminent talents iu the United States Senate. Ilis friends will insist upon his return to that body at the cmnun ncement of the next teiui, ami we ate gii l to know that it will not be disiastelul to him to comply with their wishes." It was generally tindtisiood at the time, and we did not doubt the laet, that Mr. Fes senden accepted the olHcn of Secretary ot the Treasury hesitatingly and reluuctant ly, and that he yielded his consent at last from a sneer seuse of duty, not only because tue state of his health—not very firm, we believe, for sev eral yea's past—hardly warranted bis assum ing du ies so laborious aud responsible as those which in the present condition of the country devolve on the bead of the Treasury, but because it deuianned the relinquishment of a seat in the Senate of the United Stales— a post much more congenial, ininiliar, and easy, though by no means free from labor as Mr. F. Oiled it. These reasons Induced us to believe that he would probably uot endure tbe cares of the onerous office ot Secretary of the Treasury very long; and therefore, although we are not surprised to learn that he already btgins to look to retirement from it, we think it will be a misfortune both for tlte Govern ment and the country it he should insist on retiring at least lielore the close ol the next session of Congress. Tha' Mr. Fessenden should desire to return to the Senate is most natural. It is most nat ural especially for him—a post of diguily suf ficient for any man’s ambition, and where he won the respect of all his peers by Ids emi nent ability, his assiduity, and the observance of uouevialiug Senatorial propriety. There was baldly a member of tbe body tiiat could not have been better spared when he was transferred to the Executive branch of the Government; but he is now, as we conceive a necessity for that branch, and any body had* better for one session occupy the seat in the Senate than that the Treasury should in the present juncture lose Mr. Fessenden. , We refer to the matter in all Its relations with tlie most perfect disinterestedness. Our suggestions are dictated solely by regard for the public interest. Oopperkeadiam Pure and Undefiled, A brace of copperhead conventions came off in Bangor on Monday, which struck the key note ol the campaigu, a- it is to be waged by the aides ol rebe liou in this state. Tire Coun ty Convention passed the following resolu tions : Resolved, by the Democracy of Penobscot in Convention assembled, that we maintain that the government under which we live is touuded upon the voluntary consent of the Stales and the willing affections of the peo ple of all the sections; and whatever tends to destroy these affections destroys the Government and the Union at the same time. Resolved, That it is in vain to protest against the usurpations of the administration wlule the fountain-head of those usurpations (the war) is upheld. Resolved, That believing war to be not a remedy for secession, but the very means to effect a permanent separation of the Stall s, we do therefore solemnly protest against its further proseculiou, and that we are iu favor ot an immediate and honorable Peace. Resolved, That the past history of the Dem ocratic party, its patriotism ar.d devotion to Constitutional liuerly, give the strongest as surances that its return to power w ill restore peace and tranquility to our now distracted country. The District Convention passed a string of similar import, though somewhat varied iu form of expression, llcre are a few speci men bricks: Resolved, That the Democracy of this Dis trict denounce tile heresy of a Constitutional prosecution of an unconstitutional war; that we deny both the right and possibility of co ercion of Sovereigu States; that we main tain that the system of government under which we live is based upon the idea of the self-government of the Stales. Resolved, That believing as we do that a further prosecution of the present war will ouly result iu the ruin of the counuy and the bermaiueut separation of the States compos ing it, we declare ouaselves In favor of an immediate armistice and negotiations for peace. Resolved, That the Democratic party, hav ing a history of seventy years, during which it has always stood proudly as the champion <f Constitutional Liberty — never having waged an unconstitutional war, and never concluded a dishonorable peace—points lo this long record oi its hatrlolism ai d wisdom, , as a sufficient guaranty that the peace, which it will give to the couutry on its restoration lo power, will be an honorable peace. The Argus on Grant's Campaign. Tbe Argus highly praises the National In telligencer anil copies with evident satisfac tion its couclusious upon tbe criticisms ot I Grant’s Campaign which appeared in that | journal a short lime ago. And it ados the fol low ing: R-cent intelligence, not through official sources, indicates that the campaign has been completely abandoned and tbe attempt to take Richmond given up. That most of thu army has gone back to Washington and that the 1 large siege guns have been put ou transports und sent to Fortress Monroe. We were not aw’are that the attempt to take Richmond was given up, but we suppose it must be taken lor trutb as tbe Atgus never lias. We are sorry to see such news spread | before the readers of that journal, but it is I said a lie well stuck to answers as well as the truth. Perhaps it does, but we don't see it in that light, if the Argus does. Wo commend to the Argus man the following from the. N. Y. Herald. It is quite spicy, and may amuse him if it does not iuduce him, to mend his ways. A Newspaper as is a Newspaper.— i The Washington Xational Intelliijencer is a very silly, rlcketty concern, hut not more so ( now than formerly. On Salutday last it had an article uine or teu columns long—with the th'-rinometer at 95—denouncing Grant as a failure, and his campaign os a failure. Thir ty-eight years and two mouths ago (his same InLdtimjcncer, under tbe management of those old nincompoops, Gales and Seaton, bad an article nine or leu columns long abusing Jackson and Van Buret). in reply to an arti cle which we wrote, and which was printed in a paper here called the Xational Advocate. Well, the result of that long string of dreadful abuse was that Jackson was elected twice and Van Ruren once to tbe highest ( dice in the country. Will the young nineompc ops who now manage the Intelliijencer have any better luck with their nine or teu columns against Grant. Religious and Ecclesiastical Items. The CongregationalisUof the United States intend to organize, before the close of the year, a National Congregational Convention. Ten of the State associations have already de clared in favor of the plan, and the papers, both Kast and West, are earnestly advocating i if. The New Hampshire General Association and Conference of Orthodox Congregational Ministers and Churches will meet at Manches' j ter on Tuesday, August 2J, and, with the New Hampshire Mission Society and other associa ; lions, continue in session three days. Dr. J. R. Adams, of Gorham, (formerly chaplain of the 5lh regiment) has been ten dered the chaplaincy of tbe 121st N. Y. Vol unteers. The gift of $50,000 to Rowdoin College by Prof. II. H. Boody, of New York, was made on the following conditions: “That the Col lege shall be decidedly Orthodox in its man agement and teaching; that it shall be decid ediy CongiepUional as Yale, Dartmouth and Amherst; that the. leitn ‘Orthodox Congrega i tional’ shall be defined in writing and put on • record; that tbe trustees, overseers and pro fessors, or a majority of them, shall bo decid ed Oongregatioualists and satisfactory to tbe denomination in the stale.” Union College has conferred the title of D. I D„ upon Rev. Wm. Channing Child of Bos. | too, Secretary of the American Tract So ciety. At the late Commencement at Middlebury ; College the honorary degree of Doctor of Di ! viuity was conferred ou llev. S. U. Keeler of : Calais, Me., Rev. Dr. Jonas King, the famous missionary in Greece, has arrived in this country; it is 36 years since he left the United States. Secession in Utah.—A correspondent now residing at Utah sonds us the following, attached to a business letter: “There was a I’rovost Guard established in this city the 10th inst. It created great ex citement among the Saints for a short time They said the soldiers were going to take Brig ham, and lie had a guard of 330 or 430 men until they found we were not going to harm him; since theu they have bean very quiet, lu their churchci they talk treason and abuse the govermneut;say the govcrumout makes shiiiplasters by the card and hauded them out hy the armlul, but they (the government) will break up shortly and there will be a gen. era! ruin ;that there is no Union uud they care nothing about it anyhow; that is their usual strain.” A Representative Man.—With regard to the propiiety of ex-Presideut Pierce be coming the nominee at Chicago, the liihUcal Recorder publishes the following note from the Kev- Mr. Pritchard, of Raleigh, S. C.: “Last spring a prominent member or tho church of which I was pastor, in Baltimore, met at the St. Nicholas Hotel, in New York, ex President Pierce. Mr, Pierce manifested the warmest sympathy for the South in this struggle for independence, declared that the only hope for freedom on this comment was iu the. success of the South; that, old as he was, he should have been iu the confederate army hut lor the health of his wile, and that be desired no higher earthly honor than to be a private in the rauks of the Southern ar my.” 3?" The recent arbitrary measures of Louis Napoleon have alarmed the Independent Press, insomuch that it scarcely ventures to allude to the election for the CouDoils-Gencral, and the otSciixI list published in the JMonilcitr is so much confused that it is hardly possible to arrive at a correct judgment of the results. The reason is because the opposition candidates received a large majority of the votes. The truth is, the power of the French Emperor is on the wane, and the French heart is strongly imbued with the Garibaldion spirit whioh is very troublesome to crowned heads. ORIGINAL AND SELECTED.
