Never since the <Wys of our Revolution have the souls of men been more severely tried and their patriotism put to a severer test than they have been in our recent State election. The poet tang many centuries ago "Bella, be la, korrUla bella.” Wars, wars, horrid wars 1 and war is just as terrible now as when Virgil wrote, and especially the war that haa been forced upon us by southern re bels which they have reudered more barbar ous, if that were possible, than thoae of ancient limes that called out the exclamation of the amiable Latin poet. The copperhead journals have been over flowing with appeals to the war-sickness of the people, and copperhead tongues have been busy In making similar appeals. They have indulged the pleasing hope that the horrors of a civil war would overcome the patriotism of the people, stifle their better emotions and laduoe them to change their votes and go over to the rebels. No men belter understand how to make such base appeals than copperhead editors and speakers. They have rung all the changes upon the weaknesses* of human na ture which Ingenuity and corrupt hearts could conjure up for the occasion. And appeals al so have been made to baser and more sordid passion*. No stone has been left unturned, and all arts and devices have been plied la the hope of starting a current of feeling and sen timent that might overflow and drown out the emotions of patriotism which have been a welling the hearts of the people for the past three veara. Fresh made graves and weeds of mourning, widow's tears, and the cry of orphans, homes made desolate and a mother's love, a father’s anxiety and a sisters affection, sickness in hos pitals and death on the Held, heavy taxes and the currency of the country, all the ter rors of war that could be pictured to the fan cy, and the wounded, dying soldiers—all these and more than these, have been made the instruments to draw away the public heart from iu love of country. But thank God! all such appeals and such instrumenu have proved abortive. The people of Mains lore their country, love iu laws and iu institutions, love lu Old Flag more than all these as their votes In the late election abundantly demonstrated. The public heart beats true to the Union, and all the arU of demagogues, and the appeals of copperheads can not change those pulsation?. As much at they hate war they hate rebels more, and are willing to make any tacrifloe to put down the rebellion and save the gov ernment and the Union. Iu the lauguage of Shakespeare every loyal voter of Maine can truly say, and so esn our brave soldiers: "Tbit li thst you would Impart to mu?

Belt from the Chicago Nomination. The New York Daily News of the 18th Inst, •ays : “ We are happy In being able to stale “ that preliminary steps are being taken by the 44 friends of Peace to call a National Conveu 4 tiou of the Democracy, to place in oomiua “ lion candidates lor President and Vice Pres 44 ideut.” The News is the organ of Messrs. Fernando end Beoj. Wood, both members of Congress; bulb men of influence. They era offensive men, no doubt, but they are not the meu to lie down quietly and have a furrow turued over them. They are representative men and their influence must be lelt. Four anti-Lincoln papers iu New York— now oppose McClellan, to wit: the News, the Metropolitan Record, the Freemau’s Journal —the leading Catholic paper—and the Freuch paper, the Courier Dos Etaiis Unis. Who sup poses that such an opposition is not a serious obstacle to Gen. McClellan’s success? The “down east” copperhead journal mty sneer at auch indications, and say their chances im prove by throwing off offensive elements, hut the people understand that the great source of McClellan’s strength was looked for in precise ly auch elements. The truth is, the Chicago nominees are dead cocks in the pit, killed by their own party, before the Union batteries were brought to bear on them. That Secesh flag agaia. To tkt Editor of <*« In common with others In Gorham, I am not a little surprised that you should have given Mr. Clement of West Gorham, the ben efit of your columus for an “explanation" in relation to the rebel flag recently hoisted in that locality. Knowing him as we do, it is our opiniou that he was hardly entitled to space enough for ao advertisement, although it were paid for liberally. The truth is that Mr. Clement has made altogether too many declarations against the war, and in favor of the rebellion, aud partic ularly of that arch traitor, Jeff. Davit, to render UU explanation of the flag at all prob able. It It certainly possible, I i dmit; al though If a vote among his neighbors not in political sympathy with him were taken, I in cline to think the “uoes” would have it by a large msjority. No matter when the flag was obtained, for what original purpose, the loyal people of Gorham who understand the proclivities of Mr. Clement are not to be deceived by any explanation from that quarter, but will re main of the same opinion still. Gobuax. Uaikeano Mobil*.—The Copperheads are really between two Ores, and getting a terrible scorching, to say nothing of the blows tbey have received from Atlanta. It may be problematical from which the Copperheads •ulTer most—from Maine, Mobile oy Atlanta. The Argus and New England. The Argus, smarting under tlio rebuke which Monday’s election administered to the J principles it advocates, relieves itself by ar | reigning the public sentiment of New England, and makes some very disparaging comparisons ^ between this aDd other sections of the Union. It has some choice flings at fanaticism, Salem witchcraft, Ac., and its denunciations of the 1 dangerous and subversive tendency of New Kngland ideas, are a faint though faithful echo , of the tirades with which the Are-eating Southern journals have for years been accus tomed to iudnlge us. It takes ciedit to itself for its boldness in saying what it thiukf. That is quite needless. Speech is free in this 1 despised New England of ours, though the Argus and its compeers are accustomed to j rail at the "worse than Austrian despotism” of J the administration. The impunity with which its own libellous diatribes against the govern ment are allowed Jo pass, is however a sutfl i refutation of the charge of despotism. But 1 what strikes one most forcibly i» the strange dullness of the Argus. Its hundred eyes most be of little service if it re*<i cause and effect no better than this. If the public sentiment, the "political theories” of New Euglsud are so dangerous, how does it happen that the dissemiuation of that sentiment, the extent to which those “theories” are received and put in practice in any portion of the Un ion, is the sure criterion of the prosperity, the intelligence and thestability of the society tlnrd found t Why is it that wherever New Eng land ideas, New England customs, New Eng land princ.'ples have failed to penetrate, the i extent nt thxt hilnr, i, the oxapt rutin nf . the Ignorance, the turbulauce and the disloy ' ally which there prevail? This is the simple ! fact, aud its significance is so plain that it would seem as If it must be paleLt to all Throughout the great Western and Middle Slates, which the Argus congratulates on be 1 lug so different from this region, It is slriking I ly apparent. In passing through those Slates, the least observing traveller can readily dis ! tingulsh the places settled by New England j men by their superiority in every thing which goes to make up a stable and prosperous com munity. The West owes to New England > the best elements of its present greatness, aud its surest hope for the future is the rspid i spread of New Eugland culture and principles throughout its length aud breadth, The dif j ference between the two to-day, is but the i difference of age and degree which we Hud between the teacher and the pupil. The best I wish, the proudest prophecy which we can ’ utter for the latter is that in that richer and 1 wider field she may plant the glorious seeds : ripened on New England soil, and gather { through all comiDg time their legitimate har vest. In saying thus much the writer would not be misunderstood as undervaluing the many , pt’uer rich aud varied elemeuts which go to make up our American nationality. The so j her thrift of Germany, the uucalculating ardor and enthusiasm of Ireland, the lire and fancy > or Southern Europe, all help to feed with ! strong rich blood its swelling pulses, but the I ncblest impulse the highest thought which in : forms our national life is of New Eugland growth. Wherever the New Eugland emi grants have gone they have carried with them : their strange fondness for tree speech, free i thought, free schools, and free ballots, their i respect for law, their hatred of tyranny and wrong, with many other of the pernicious* heresies which seem so alarming to the Argus i and everywhere their progress is written in light. East or West, North or South, there is , not in America, there is not in the wide world i any nobler, purer, grander civilization than that which draws its life-blood from New Eng land, and its inspiration from Plymouth Rock, i ,, p I’dTT AV Table of the Crops. The table of the cropi of the country, which I we publish ou the first page to-day, of so i much interest to every consumer in these days ( of high prices and of necessary economy, has been prepared from materials carefully col i lected by telegraph, and was siereotpyed in , Xew York. Thinking our readers would find much interest in the facts which it contains, we did not hesitate to incur the expense ol j transferring it to our columns, though at a cost which will cover the profits of an entire edition of the paper. The statements are per fectly reliable, the figures haviug been pro cured with care, and showing the results of 1 critical observation and inquiry in those por tions of the country and of Canada which the table purports to cover. Of coarse, in order to make room for this, we are obliged to leave out other matter, but the reader will consider the space well filled. Agriculture Is the great underlying interest of the country; the source from which almost every stream of wealth flows; and it is one ol i the wonderful fruits ol science that the tele graph—the messenger of the lightnings— should be made the agent in the collection and publication of sach practical facta, of univer sal interest, as well as in the transmission of battle news and the fluctuations in the great market of the world. A Remarkable Conversion Charles B. Stetson, Esq., formerly Editor of : the Democratic Advocate at Lewitlon, and 1 subsequently editor of the Portland Adverti ser under its present rey true, and who as edi tor ot the latter paper defended the most ul | tra State Rights doctrines, negro slavery aud very nearly the rigbtof secession, has recenl 1 ly written a letter from Mass, to the Lewiston Journal, from which the following Is an ex tract: 1 be war can be speedily stopped only by Union victory. The rebellion must be put DOWN, It CA.NNOr BE COAXED DOWN. The day lor couciiialion and compromise has gone by. So I beleive aud I would act according ly. While 1 propose no ultimatum save the complete restoration of the National author ity, I would do all I otherwise could lor the abolition of slavery everywhere. 1 would do it by the constitutional aut> udnie:.t, though by all means lettiug the Pioclaumtiou of Emancipation stand. The political contest cannot be made oue of policy in the conduct ol the war. That day has gone by. Events have u-ade their own policy. The contest is one of principles, not men. Last year I op posed the election of Mr. Cony ; this year I hope he may be re-elected with an increased majority. A frightened Conductor. The Columbus (Ohio) Statesman tells the following of oue of the regular conductors on the Cleveland aud Columbus Railroad: A corpulent and good-natured conductor on the Columbus aud Cleveland Railroad, aud oue of the best lu the country, was sold the other day and in the most singular mailt er.

One Cromer, confined on a charge of murder, they took with them, but he made his escape and returned to jail, saying, he would rather be hung than go with such a set of cut throats. IF A few days ago, Jeff. Davis, iu company with Bragg, arrived at Macon, where he made a speech, in which he said that Atlanta was the most vital part of the Southern Confederacy; that reinforcements had arrived, and would con tinue to arrive until the safety of the city was beyond question. tdr uwmg to a plurality of Appetites among the “peace men” of Waterville, the ovation de- ! signed for Gen. McClellan, the Mail says, was i devoted to a more worthy hero, “ General ] Knox.” It was thought safer to give it to one who had never lost, than to one who never won j —and never will. BTThe Democratic papers say Gen. McClellan j will not resign hie commission in the army, but, like Gcu. Scott he will held on. And the people have determined that bis fate, as a presidential caudidate, shall he like Scott's, and that the re sult of the election shall show that, in “holding on” he exercised his usual oaution. STI'lie Washington correspondent of the New York Times says: “A leading member of Con- ' gress predicts that the Chicago Convention will i be recouvuked, McClellan thrown overboard,and Pendleton nominated for the Presidency by the peace faction and such other discontents as may be induced to support their policy.” HT By order of the Secretary of War, all sick and wounded soldiers will be discharged upon the expiration of their terms of servioe, but will be entitled to medical treatment in hos pituls and the usual rations so long as the disa bility under which they arc suffering may exist, i or for the time it may be considered proper for them to remain under. 6TAn exchange says a campaign history of f**"1- McClellan tells of his making an interest Collection of reptiles in alcohol on the Bed river ®*ueditiou, years ago. It is suggested that be might have aided to his collection if he bad been at Chicago, aud that most ot the spec imens there were already well preserved in eora whisky. BTYhe Boston Cou-itr takes the Democrats of this state to task teveruy for not doing better on Monday, and it must beunfessed that they did very badly. It appears thw it is urged on their behalf that they saved up u,eir strength fur November; but this, says tha Courier, was a mistake, aud “as it is they appear to us h. have lost all." tyrhe new Custom House at Quebec was de stroyed by fire on Saturday evening. The great- j er part of the furniture was saved, as was also the basement story with the winter’s supply of ' firewood. The fire was caused, it is believed, by the plumbers leaving their fire burning upon the roof. jyTbe remains of Col. Freeman McGilvery ! were brought home to Scarsport and interred last Sunday. He reviewed his artillery com mand on the morning he fell a victim to chloro form. liii> death was announced in two minutes after became in from the field. Col. McGilvery was one of the bravest and most faithful officers in the servioe, and his death is a great loss. HT There is a painful rumor .not yet confirmed. that Mrs. John Brown, her son Salmon, his wife and three daughters, while on their way to Cali fornia to seek a new home, were captured by guerrillas, robbed and murdered. Their home stead is now occupied by Mrs. Brown’s brother, named Hinckly, who says that many pilgrims visit the grave of John Brown, who died be cause he loved liberty well but not wisely. jy There is a negro carpenter at Memphis, Fleming Davis, who was born and brought up in Cincinnati and was kidnapped eighteen years ago in Covington,Ky., together with his brother. They were kept in slavery at Vicksburg until the war broke out when their master entered the rebel army. They got their freedom when Vicksburg was taken and the brother is now in the Union army. jyGeu. McClellan was one of the first officers to recommend a draft, to urge emancipation as a “military necessity,’’ and to order the arrest of a State Legislature, and in view of these acta and their author’s nomination at Chicago, Mr. Van Alien of N. Y., a delegate to Chicago, says, “the nominationof George B. McClellan quashes the indictment which we [Democrats] A a re drawn against the administration. jyThc Argus holds “that the political opin ions now in the ascendant in New England.have been ruining the country.” They have hid rather a ruinous effect upon the copper stocks and stocks in copperhead ncwspaiiers, but the general interests of the country stand up under them remarkably well. We suppose the Argus sighs for the good old times of John B. Floyd and Howell Cobb, when a loan of $12,000,000 could not possibly be effected at one per cent, a month jy The McClellan papers advertise their can didate as a French Dancing Master would adver tise his heels, giving a list of references in the same way. For example: the New York World refers to Abraham Lincoln, who said “a thous and thanks for the relief your dispatches gave me,” and to Gen. Ualleck who said, “I beg of you to assist me with your ability and expe rience.” Mr. Lincoln ie also quoted in a noteto “Little Mac,” “Destroy the rebel arms if possi ble.” But “Mac” didn’t do it, nor did he try hard. The Argus has got a crumb of oomfort. At the negro concert at Deering Hall, one of the imitatian darkeys mentioned the name of that imitation hero, McClellan, and there was a shout of applause from the "Peace” boys present ! Of course “Little Mac” will lie next President, for a negro concert lias established the fact that his name calls forth more applause than that of Fremont, Buell, Jim Brooks, or Daniel Pratt ! Darkey concerts are big things for the develop ment of McClellan enthusiasm and dried cow skin thunder—both equally temoved from the genuiue article. jy We received numerous raps over the knuckles for allowing Mr. Clement to explain the origin of that rebel flag at West Gorham, and one good friend has written out his reproof | which will be found in anether column. If auy i one supposes Mr. C. gained access to our paper ; by paying for it he is grossly at fault in his ; judgment, li t didn’t think the “explanation” | reflected any credit upon its author, for it was I a vindication of his suspected patriotism at the . expense of his intelligence. It is difficult to see hew he could be ignorant of the flag under which . his friends arc fighting. ty Will the Argus copy the extract we pub lished from J udge Rice's letter of 1862, and then say if the same contingencies do not now exist I under which Judge R. declared the war should be prosecuted with its utmost vigor? We-charge | Judge Rice with no inconsistency; we demand of i him no rigid occupancy of precisely the same j ground he occupied three years ago; we charge that in endorsing the Chicago platform as he ! has done by bis vote, be dcuies the very princi . fdsM In hie letter tv wliul have re ferred, and shows that he has changed his posi tion not simply in relatiou to measures, but in relation to questions of fundamental signify canee. __________________ Election Returns.

The five Union candidates for Congress have been elected by majorities ranging from 2000 to 4500. The majority for Mr. Lynch iD this District will not vary fifty voles from two thousand. We have but few returns from Aroostook County. Those we have received show a Union loss and indicate that Madigau has teen at work with universal zeal in that couul).— We think it probable thet the democrat! have carried the county and will, therefore, have one member in the state Senate. AU the other conuties hare elected the Union ticket. Lincoln County has been carried by the Union party by about filly majority. One hundred and twenty-two Representa tive Districts return one hundred Union men and twenty-two Democrats. The Union nominations for county officers have been elected in every county save, per haps, Aroostook. This is glory enough for our September election. A Splendid Launch. The steamer Franklin, whose keel was laid in 1852, will he launched to morrow about noon at the Kitlery Navy Yard. She Is a splendid model, and the largest vessel in our Navy. The Baud of the 17th Regt. will go out in the moruing train and discourse some patriotic music ou the occasion. Persons de sirous ol witnessing this exhibition can go out in the morning train and return in the evening train. It is expected there will be a large concourse of people present to witness this magnificent spectacle. We presume many of our citizens will attend. If the day is pleasant, the visit to the Navy Yard on this occasion will be very interesting. Americans have reasons to feel proud of their Navy, especially since Farragut has placed five war vessels alongside Mobile all ready to fire upon that city In case it does not surrender. We hope it will yield to the old Commodore’s demand and thereby much prop erty will be saved. Mao Don in Brunswick.—A gentleman from Brunswick iulbims us that about a week or teu days since, a mad dog made his appear ance in Brunswick, on the premises of Mr. Gilbert Woodward; that he killed a hen in the j yard, and then made an attack upon the oxeu, I but they fought him cfi' and he did not bile them. He bit a cow in the tail, which has j since died, and then returned to the yard and i killed anotlper hen. Mr. Woodward shot the dog dead ou the second attempt, the firtt ; time the gun missing fire. Upon examining the dog’s collar it was found to be marked t “Jeff.

Truth and justice require some notice be takeu of the above. Mr. .sparrow did not (as Mr. Neal states) surrender the agency of tho N. Y. Liio at a great pecuniary sacrifice; his agency of that company was revoked for what we consider a dishonorable trans action. He (Sparrow) says that after more thorough inves tigation of later reports, he., be was induced to ac- I cept tho agency of the Mutual Benefit. Mr. Neal states hit discussion with Sparrow con- \ ▼inced him of the superior advantages of the Mutu- ' al Benefit. Are either of the above tho true reasoas? lia< Ur. , Noa’given tho true reason why ho allowed twenty i years’business to be transfored from his hands to < Mr. Sparrow’s? Neither of those cover the ground. Mr. Spariow has steadiestly contended for months after hia con- j troversy with Mr. Neal that it was a triumph for the N. Y. Life. Why with hi* professed scruples con- * tinue to impress this laot upon the public? Why so a»sHuously claiming everywhere the X. Y. Life to bj second to no company after being thus convinced? was he honest then,and now? Mr. Neal’s article had uo’hing to do with It! this Mr. 8. knows. What does he mean by Uter reports of the Mass. 1 and N Y Insurance Commissioners? lit^he anything later than Jan 1864? No! lor none have been issued of later date by those commission ers. Has he not studied those reports carefully for tho past nve months prior to entering the employ of the Mu usl Benefit? During that time, uot a day has passed in which ho did not present ths N. Y. Life to to the business men of Tortlaod at safe, reliable, and cheap as any company in the country. Is there anything in the later reports to which he refer*, differing io any degiee to tho foimer reports of tQO same cornu i-aioners, to the prejudice of the N- i. I ife. as compared with the Mutual Benefit, or any other Co? In tact, does not the Mass. Ins. Com mis loners’ report of 1864 shew the growth of the N. Y. Lite to Lave teen greater, the past year, than any Co. doing basnets in that 8tate? Does not Mr. Sparrow know that the nett assets, to value ofthe N. Y. Life, has largely increased the ' past year, until it exceeds that of the Mutual Bene fit over three per ceat.? He ought to know it, and does. Ho knows lull woll if he is competent for Lis business, that so far from the last report of ekber of the above commissioners being in any way constru ed to the end he implieq it is quite to the contrary. It U not a little singular, that after tear years of 1 examination and labor for the N. Y. Life—in con stant competition with the Mutual Benefit, and pub i lie controversy with in agent, called each day to close investigation of the merit* oi each Co—that he should remain firm and decided in Lis convictions, in regard to the former, until the General Agent of the latter approaches with tLe proposition to trans fer twenty years' business of Mr. Neal, to hi* bands, • if he will advocate the Mutual Benefit. Thus in one night, all the investigations of years vanish.—admitting all he has said heretofore for years untrne. lie arguments of Mr. Neal which the ! day before were mere sophistry, became a tower of logic, not to be o’erturned. Twelve months hence, should any other Co. offer ! inducements,may he not find some/ox«r report which will lequire a denial of all he to-day states in re gard to the Mutual Benefit ? If four years of investi gation tesuited in so completely deceiving him, how 1 long will it require u> properly enlighten him? I The whole matter is too transparent te deceive any sensible , er»ou. It* a question of dollars and cants. 1 admit Lis right to ail himself of any snob ad vantage, but let him be manly, and honornb e a* well as truthlu. His statistic* are as faulty as the above reasons ho assigns, lie slate* the amount received for interest by the Mutual Benefit during the year 1863 t440.67fi.7S Ain't rte'd by X. Y. Life,same time, 133.861,76 By re enug to the/o/esf rep*rts of the Mass Ins. Commissioners (1864) page 14. we find the amount thue recei ed by the klutnei Benefit #296.077,-6 or #144,498 80 less than he state*, while the X. Y. Life ; was #7,679.10 more than he slates, an error of only #152,177.92 in one item, as shown by the authority he invokes. Bo iu the matter of expense - taking same author ity. X. Y. Life for 1833, 17,67 pr. ct. Mutual Benefit, 1863, 9,74 pr. ct. an excess ol 7,63per cent, against the X. Y. Life, not oi 9.33 per cent, ns he state*,showing again his error ; thus A might pa« through the items. A word ofesplanation on this excess of expenses. Every person at all familiar with Life Insurance, and Mr. bparrow in particular, (for this point he has explained a thousand time*) knows that tbe expense of new business to a Co. is trom three to four times greater than thstinenred on the old. or. that every new policy issued, cost the Co's from three to four times as much the first year, as in subsequent years. As a result, a Co that is doing a large new business, most increase its expenses; this tbe X. Y. Lift has r n4 tm tuMified in so delog, every policy hold er being benefited by that new basinet*. lua. Com. remarks upon that point.) The profits el this outlay will be felt the preecnt and in future y ear*, dome Co’s reach ae high as 30 per oent. and good Co’s even higher j the only question is ha* it been judicionsly expended, booh fit the of ficial report: X. Y, Life isined in 1S6J, 4077 new policies. Mut’i Bc-ui t, 2687 do. An excess of 13U0 in lavor of the X. Y. Life Tois fact is answer to the query, whether or no this dif fereuoe i<as been Judicionsly expended. Ou the point of dividends, I have but little to say, remarking the X. Y. Life dec.ared 35 per oent. the last year, and coaid have largely increased the same had they doomed it it iso so to do; in the present con dit.on c f things they thought a conservative coarse wisest, la this they find the endorsement of X. Y. Commissioner* Say* Mr. Barnes. bupt, of In* Dep. of X. Y , in his last repoit, "The disposition to de clare excessive dividend*, espoiialljr with our note Co's,is undoubtedly agrowiugevii with Life Ins." Tlis Mutual Benofit is a note Co. So is th* X. Y. Life, the for .nor being moro so, taking note lor 50 per ceut, the latter accepting but 40 per cent. The X. Y. Lite has done a leaning business for year*, and th * they have cone without failing iuto the evil to which Mr. Barnes refers, of exoe*slvediv idends. It* Ti usloes are houtSb and capable meu, known to besuen by many busmens men of Portland; they have never sought to swell their dividend*, in order to procure new bumne»* but i*) give to its po icy holsers ail that any Co. can give them, con sistent with ample security and equity; on this ba sis they have done this leaning busmen. Says Mr. Sparrow iu hi* advertisement ol Deo last, "The new buBimsi cf the X. ¥. Lite iu tbe year 1862 nearly tqna.ed the combined business of any two Compan ies in the Cuited Slates.'' We are content thus to remain. Mr. Sparrow stat s it will cost #22-12 ie.-s on premium in the Mutual Benefit ihun in tho X. Y. Lite. Xot knowing the plan upon which he bases hLJfiguies, 1 cannot examine its details to show its illusion 09 such it Is. Does he calm the losses will avenge more with the X. Y . Life than tbe Mutual Benefit or any other Co.f K ad his public statement a short time since. “The mortal.ty among its(X. Y. L;ie) members has been priporii nally /ess than that of any olhar Life las. Dees the N. Y. Life do lees new business * lie has told you it does ino:e. Do they receive le»s for that busiuets? He tells us they retain more. Is their business well managed * He replies yea! So think the ins. Commissioners of h. Y. and Mass. Why then is it not as **fe, reliable and cbespas the Mu tual Bent tit or any other Co. The truth is Mr. Spar row finds it lor his advantage, for reasons given, to operato for the Mutual Benefit, Loping to retain both Cos. Findiog his agtncy of the N. Y.
