The Robinson building, on the corner of Cougrest and Center streets, has recently been enlarged, remodeled and made over anew.— It is twenty feet on Congress street and sixty on Center street; three stories high in front, on Congress street, and four stories on Cen ter street. 1: is finished inside and out in a very neat aud substantial manner. A large portion of the building has been leased by Mr. A. M. MrKenney, Photograph ist, uuder whose direction it had been finished with special reference to his business, and ex perienced persons in that business, from the larger cities, say there is no establishment of the kind in New England that will compare with it for beauty o! finish and convenience of arrangement. The first lloor is to hs occupied as a recep tion room and for the sale of engravings and picture frames, of which be has a large and splendid assortment. On the second lloor is a picture gallery, rooms for finishing pictures aud private apartments. On the third floor is the operating room, uearly the entire roof being of glass. No labor has been spared to have ibis room so arranged as to combine beauty with utility, and every advantage lias been sought after that long experience could suggest. Other rooms are occupied for gilding frames and printing aud finishing pictures, all of which are well adapted to the particular work for which they are designed. We bare no doubt the reputation that Mr. McKenney lias earned, as a photographist, during the ten or twelve years be has been in this city, will be fully sustained by the increased facilities a' forded at his new place of business. The AiiZus. of which there are a l ir^e nnmbor got up in the butt Kyle of the art, by Mr. O. S. Beale. Portland'! Quota. There was a large meeting at the old City Hall last evening, Mr. Charlea II.

During the evening additional subscrip tions w< re made, and some who had befoie subscribed increased their subscriptions—add ing in the aggregate about $}000 to the above named amount. Tbe committee waut $5000 more to warrant their going ahead. They have decided, how ever, lu commence recruiting at once, reining upon the ciliaens to back them up and make the $40,000 good, and will open a recruiting cilice U the New City Hall. Let ail those who have subscribed to the fund come forward and pay over the amounts to the committee without watting to he called upon, as the committee have worked very )i;u d and arc still working. Let us all put our hands to the work and give our $5, $10, $25, and $50, and raise the . .-amount ri quired at once. Another meeting will be held to night at the old City Hall.

The American's account of tbe battle is partially aa follows: Gen. Sheridan having learned on Sunday that the main portion of Etrly’s forces were encamped in the vicinity of Bunker Hill and Stephenson's depot, resolved to mass his forces on the Berry vilie aud Winchester pike, and a rapid movement hurl th^n on Early's rear. There is no doubt but ibat the enemy were completely surprised and out-mameuvered by Sheridan. While his diiiercnt columns were being marched to the appointed place of ren- : dcivous, a portion of our cavalry, under Gens. Torpett and Averill, kept up a strong picket Uue alorij the Opcquau.aud by demonstrating in loice at Brownsiord kept a large portion ot the enemy at that part of the Held, which was nearly twelve miles distant from the front where It was intended that onr infantry should operate and strike a blow which should result in tbe signal defeat of Early's army. The delay in the arrival of the liiih corps enabled Early to move Gordon's division at double qni«k from Bunker llill, distant about ten utile*, and bring it up iu lime tolurmiu line of battle with Breckiuridge's, Kltoseur’s aud K, odes’ commands, which had already ar-| rived and weie form d in a belt of woods skirting Berryville and Winchester. As soon as the 19th corps arrived it was formed in four lines of battle about three hundred yards apart on the right of the <l h corps, aud everything being in readings the advance was sounded *t About 12 o'clock. The 2d corps advanced in splendid style, with drums beating aud col ors flying, presenting an imposing spectacle. The first iiue bad not advanced itore than 2d0 yards before it became wanr.ly engaged with the enemy, who were posted in line about Coo yards u.slant. At the same time our artillery opened a furious cannonade, throwing shells aud solid shot into the opposite wood where the enemy could be wrn moving up reinforce ments. Our dltfrent lines of battle continued to advance steadily until wi.hiu nearly 2u0 yards or the enemy’s line, when the rebels opened a lurions cannonade with grape and canister from two batteries which they bad Wept secreted, unit which piuu*;h*-d u*i.»ugh * our advancing line*, mowing down large num bers of our turn, The drat line wrs obliged' to g:vo way under to murderous a lire, anti In erecting behind tbe second lin- threw it into momentary confusion, and it also was obliged ' to fall back behind the third line, which bad iu the nc.autimo been ordered to iic down in order to avoid as much aa possible the effects of tbe withering tire which the enmy was di against our advancing lines. The artillery was now brought up to silence these batteries of tbe enemy which had caused so much an noyance, and our line reformed and again moved forward, regainiu the advanced posi tion which they h-ld wli-n obliged to fall track. uumin HU IH l fUir.l'U Ml UUlU 1116 I most obstinate resistance of the enemy. Gen. Slnudan previously role along Ike line and mas received evi rywhere by the tueu with the greatest enthusiasm. Having gained th* ad vanced position which we previously occupied, the didereul lines q( battle were ordertd to lie down and awuit tl.o arrival or Crook’s 1 corps, which was held in reserve bn the east side of the Opetjuan. Tm-y were ordered up to a position ou the extreme right of our line in order to counteract a movement on the part i of the enemy, who was masting troops ou their left fiauk with a view of turning our right. * Precisely at three o’clock Gen. Crook form ed ou the t ight lit the ilth corps, his first di vision on the extreme right of our line and his second division in the rear supporting a division p( the U»th corps, Gen. Crook hav ing formed Ilia men, rode along the lines and was received w*ith viciferuu* cheering, the men promising to wipe out Winchester. Gen. Torbett, with Merit’s and Averill’i di- ' visions of cavalry, having crossed the Ope quan about nine o'clock, at ilurus, aud Knox lord had I »en hard at work all day fighting considerable bodies of the enemy’s luihntry snd cavalry and having been successful in steadily driving them, now arrived ou the ex treme right and was prepared to lake part in the final struggle which secured the victory. Gen. Sheridan roJe out to where Geu. Tor bett was station, md after consultation with him as to what part the cavalry were to take, ordered the final chaige.which was made with i an impetua-ity which nothing could resist.— 1 Our line, extending neatly three miles, ad vauceo amid cheers and yells that could be disliuclly heard far above the noise caused by the thunder of the artillery aud the contin uous roar of musketry. As our lines advauc ed closer aud closer to the enemy the battle became more and more desperate and the fletce carnage will compare with any similar contest of the war. The slaught was now truly awful. At every discharge u.eu would tie seen dropping ali around. Just at this critical period, above the roar of artillery and , other sounds of battle, was beard the cavalry I bugles sounding the charge which w. s the death knell ot Early’s army, Tee columns of Early’s command were forced to give way and break before the fierce onslaught our cavalry made on them, who, wiih sabre in hand, rede them down, cutting them right and left, cap'urlug 7-’l privates and non-comniisMoued officers with nine bat tle flags aud two guns. The broken and de moralized cuemy fled in confusion, throwing away everything which could in any way im pede their flight, end strewing the ground with their arms. Some made for the Ueighlhs beyond Winchester, but they were sp&edily dislodged V i A vertll and forced to beat a hasty and ignominious retreat up the valley, where such of Etrly’s command its are left are now scattered. Of the field and line officers, 1 have been able to collect a few names of the killed and wounded. Among them are Col. Babcock, of the 75th New York, wounded; Col. E. Bright, lidth Ohio, killed; MaJ. Dillingham. 10th Ver mont, killed; Lieut. Col. Brewer,7th Michi gan cavalry, killed. After the battle was won. and whilst our troops were passing through Winchester, sev eral citizens, among them some ladies, came out with Union flags, and Md our soldiers wel come hack to Winchester. Tho people of Winchester all sgree in stat ing that Rally's command is fearfully demoral ized, and speak of his d- eat as disgraceful.— B >th men and officers rushed frantically through ill.' streets, throwing away everything hat could in any way impede their flight.— The City Hotel and adjacent foundries, to gether with many private houses in Winches ter, are full of the rebel wounded. It is esti mated that there are at least three thousand in Winchester. Allowing for those who were carried away In ambulances, and for those able to toddle along.lt will he a small estimate | to place their wounded at 4,000, and their killed et 500, which, together with the prisou I era already captured, numbering 3,000, will ♦ make their lost 7,500, equal to one of theii corp*. Of our lens it is impossible now to form any j correct esiinnte; bus lrom informaliun Hi ! bami, together with personal observati ns on tbe Held, I tin not Ibiuk it will exceed 50b killed and z.iuO w ounded, if it amounts to that number.

Bui DO TON, Sept. 17, 1864. 7*o the editor of the Portland Prett Died in Denmark, on the 13,h lost., Mrs. Abby Quincy Adams, wife of Mr.' Gilson Ad am?, of that town, in the 3<)th year of her age. \ Also, Uemy and Frank their children, aged j respectively 5, and 2 1-2 years. The circumstances connected with these three deaths render them peculiarly afflictive to the bereaved husband and father, and other near and dear friends. The writer has been desired to give a brief statement of the cir cumstances for the public eye, through the me dium of your p&peta. Mrs. Adams had occasionally been subject to fits of in tai derangement,in one of whicb, some three years ago, she sought to take her own life and the lives of her three children. Before she had fully effected her purpose, she wa. discovered and re-cued. She diowned one, a little boy .» years old. After this, she recov er ’ her reason and retained it, to ail human Ippcarinco, up to a few days *fncc, when to *ho^r of insanity. On Tuesday last she appeared to be perfect ly sane, so that her husband, without the least a tspicion that she contemplated mischief eith er to herself or other?, lett her alone for a few hours with the children. On returning to his ho ne he found, to his grief and awazemeut, ' that she had drowned her.clf lu the pond and two of his three little boys! The third, a child of 7 years, perceiving his mother’s intentions, sprang from her and effected.bis escape. Ail this happened about noon, when the neighbors were supposed to he, and probably were, at dinner. One man on the opposite side of the pond, heard the outcry of the children, and haslcutd to learn the esuae. But he was too late. The children wore under wafer, and the mother on hearing him call upon her to deaist, hastily plunged la after them 'I he event calls loudly for pity to the stllict eJ, which was the subject of the discourse at the funeral. j T u 1 t'JJP. 1 ii n New Fall Millinery Goods! ribbons, t:o":’;::ra,‘ FLOWERS, FEATHERS, VELVET8, blo.vds, lacks, And all othor article* deairable for the Millinery 'lead*.
