DAILY PRESS, i POIM’LAINI). Tuesday Morning, November 20, 1866. I'lTiiloili Of ll»<* l**’*1**# The Bangor 1 Jemocrat is doing the commu nity a good service by its persistent discussion of the principles involved , in the verdict by whichlthal paper was recently declared to have been in 1801 a public nuisance, liable to sum mary abatement. With its personal attacks ■upon Judge Taplcy, we have of course noth ing to do. It was his province to declare the iaw, as it stands. He did not make the law. If it bears hardly upon the publishers of the Democrat, the fault is not his. If he erred in h’s interpretation of it, the error will ha cor rected by the full bench. The Democrat has nothing to gain by a-sault 11)101: bis character. For the present, the presumption is that the law was correctly laid down. It remains to he considered whether its provisions are just, . aUd so far as the Democrat shows a willing ness to argue that question, we repeat, it is rendering the community a genuine service. It is not enough to (cel, as most ol us do, that the verdict was just, it Is important to know on what grounds its justice can be question ed. li our first impressions ate correct, we can surely defend then; if they are wrong, the sooner we are undeceived the better. We are willing to concede the honest intent of the Democrat in 18(51. Let the case be made as strong as possible. Its publishers have just proved their belief in the merits ot their cause, by incurring the trouble and ex pense of an action at law for redress. The case is too important to ho embarrassed by any personal considerations. As wo frankly concede their honesty of purpose in 1SC1, ac cepting their bitter hostility to the war as a manifestation of genuine sympathy for the South and not a cloak for paitizan schemes, so we must ask them to lay aside the mistak en notiou about “the vindictiveness of a por tion of the Itcpublican press.” After the lapse of five years, this matter can surely be consid ered calmly and carefully, as it deserves. So considering it, we believe the verdict substan tially just. But we also believe, as we have said before, that the. law which leaves the re moval of such nuisances to the arbitrary hand ot military power, or to the irregular action of an indignant public, is faulty. If would be better if Congress or the .State should provide for their abatement by Jaw, and the sooner such provision is made now the better. To this, the Democrat responds by quotiug the following extracts from the constitutions of the United Stales, and ot Maine: CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES. Amendments. Art. 1. Congress shall make no law abridging tlie lieedom ol speech, or of the press.' CONSTITUTION OF MAINE. Art. 1. Sec. 4. Every citizen may freely speak, write and publish hiH sentiments on any sub ject. leinrj responsible for the use of this liberty; no laws shall be passed regulating or restrain ing the freedom of the press. “The doctrine of the I nited States,” the 1 lemocrat says, “is and ever has been, that THE FREES IS Ali OI.LTI LV FREE, 1101' lias a doubt ever been raised on that subject until it was raised in the recent trial at Belfast.” ‘ It is amazing," we are furthermore told, “that the leading Republican paper ol Maine should exhibit so much ignorance ol the constitu tional rights and privileges of the press." It would be a dense ignorance indeed, which should be unacquainted with ritese noble de claration! of our State and national constitu R<n»« 'The Democrat itself illustrates how ever, the contusion of thought mien may vail le.pocting principles so elementary and lamiliar as these. ThS irecdom of the piess doc3 not absolve its conductors from responsi bility. The liberty for which Milton and his great,compeers contended, was‘The l.iberty of Uni.icev'ED Printing.” “It is plain,” says fcitory, in his < Commentaries oil the Con stitution of the I nited States, "that the lan guage of llii., amendment imports no more than that every mail shall l ave a right to speak, write and print his opinions upon any subject) whatever, without any imoi: re straint, so always that he does not injure any othei person iu his rights, person, puopxirty or reputation; and so always that he does NOT THEHEHV DiSTFRIt THE IT IIIll PEACE, OB ATTEMPT TO fill VERT THE CoVEBN sient.” In short, (lie Irecdom of the press, as it has always Lien uudersti od by its ablest advocates, means freedom from censorship, but by no means freedom from responsibility. the wild notion that the press is sacred and despotic, raised above all law, will not liear a moment’s examination. Indecent publica tions are sup]iressed by law. Libelous publi cations are punishable by law. If injury to an individual may be promptly punished, eau the Democrat toll us why injury which affects a community must be euduied? The Demo crat is greatly in error, iu supposing that this question was raised tor live first time “in the recent trial at Belfast.' We had once, lor two or three years, a law ol Congress for the punishment of seditious writing, and its con stitutionality was tested and atlinned in the cofirts. The law was not a wise one, hut it was constitutional. The freedom of the press is only worth preserving it the press i, to be pure and honorable. Its purity and honor can only be secured by hold it to a faith 'ul account for it-: utterances. 1 So true wi.l it bo found,” as Iliackstone says, “that to censure the licentiousness is to main- < tain the liberty ol the press.” College Government.—Ilcferring to an ar ticle which lately appeared in these columns, suggesting the admission of the graduates of our colleges to a share in their government and citing the example of Harvard, the New York Post holds the following language; Hi re occurs a grave misstatement. The Press asserts that, President Woolsey, “of Yale Col lege,” ip advocating a “similar reform” in that institution. The fact is that President Wool Bey thinks the Harvard government “clumsy.” And while, In all probability, an overwhelm ing majority ol'Yalensians will favor some such change as lie has indicated, it will be for other reasons than the sectarianism of the ten “Con necticut Congregational clergymen.” The difference between the Harvard plan and that tavored by Hr. Woolsey, as we under stand it, is that while at Harvard all the vac ancies in the hoard of overseers arc filled by the alumni, at New Haven it is proposed that they shall choose only the civilian members who are now designated ex officio; and on the other hand, that while at Cambridge only the graduated in arts are allowed to vote, Hr. Wool sey would admit also, bachelors of science, law, theology, 'find doctors in medicine and philosophy. The two plans are certainly "similar.” We did not call them identical._ Nor did we say that “sectarianism” is the only reason fur such a change. It certainly was not the prevailing reason at Harvard,and the Post says it is not the reason at Yale. We happened to be writing of the jealousy which occasionally manifests itself about sectarianism, and suggested that it. might be avoided by the adoption of apian which has already been rec oramendod fur other reasons. The Tomb or Champlain-The Quebec pa pers contaiu interesting accounts of the recent discovery of the tomb of the French navigator and discoverer, whose name is so justly revered in Canada, and who died in Quebec in Decem ber, 1635. The Chronicle says: We understand that the grave was close to the foot of the steps leading from Mountain to Champlain street, where the workmen while excavating, yesterday, for the construction of a i,,j1'1"1''1! u)>a brass plate bearing the ini thatt«lmn "P10Il ChaniPlain ” We learn comliietiiur*? yea.rs a"°> "'bile parties were a ouantitvgof°m0 pipe? underneath these steps a quantit} of human hones were found near the same place which were handed ove" to Mr Mwtiu, the sextan of the French C ltlleVrVl a ,d interred by him in the Roman C thoiie cemetery. In all probability they were the remains of the great man, who um ft Imv fbwn buried oil what was then the river beach Tim street where this interesting discovery has been made, it will be observed, bears the name .,i Champlain. We may expect to see a copy ot the inscription so soon as it has been decipher *rr*a.»en. «.»d »«< •'*»« *' CIRCULAR FROM T1IF. GENERAL AGENT FOR NEW ENGLAND — Hradquauters, Farmington, Conn , j Nov.15,1866. j Having received the appointment from Maj. Gen. O. O. Howard, as agent of the Freedmen’s Bureau, to aid in the procurement of Homes for the destitute and unemployed Freedmen and Refugees, I take this method of stating the plan of operation. It is desirable to establish agencies in the principal centres, for the purpose of ^Abiding facilities to farmers, mechanics, manufacturers and others in the surrounding country, to se cure the employment of this class of laborers. It is Stated that there are some 20,000 colored persons in Washington City, many of whom have fled thither from slavery, dining the war, and they dare not return to such liberty as awaits them at their old homes; there is not work at hand for them, and they are williug to go elsewhere to earn honest bread; manv are now aided by the Government, hut the greater number live poorly from hand to mouth. We now appeal to those who want farm hands, wood choppers, deck hands, mason ten ders, carpenters, blacksmiths, coopers, coach men, house servants, cooks, men for coarse work about machine shops and manu&ctdries, watchmen and female servants. The order has gone forth, that after the first of October, 1800, no more rations will be issued to the able-bodied men and women, and unless they can be placed in situations to earn their daily bread, there must be much suffering among them. Every friend of the oppressed must try to assist those poor people to a chance to make an honest living, and at the same time secure a valuable class of laborers who will learn a different style of energy and enter prise in tlie North from anything they could ever acquire in the South; and when peace and quiet shall he fully restored at the South, should they wish to return, they will be ena bled to introduce improved industry and econ omy wherever they may go. It is found by those who have tried it, that the best way for farmers and others who need help on the farm or in the house, to build a little cottage in some convenient spot, or to fit up an outbuilding for a family. Let the man work on the farm or in the shop, and the wo man work in the house; and if they have chil dren, let the older care for the younger while tlie mother is at work, and then you will find this people interested, faithful and devoted to your interests, and that of your family. The plan we propose for all who want such help or will provide for one or more during the winter, is to send a written request to the nearest point where there is an accredited agent, stating the kind of work to be done, and the age of the person desired. The request will he forwarded to the General Agent in Washington. When the person or persons ar rive at the depot the applicant will be notified, and they will go or send- for them as they shall choose. All applicants will he required to pay five dollars to the general fund to de fray incidental expenses en route. 11 will he expected that all persons receiving such help, will pay for the first month’.-; service what their labor has been fairly worth, taking into consideration the expense incurred. At the expiration of the mouth, it is expected the employer will then make a bargain with the employed, agreeing wbat the wages shall be for a definite period, and make a report to the agent from whom they were received, stating the conditions. Blanks for this purpose will he furnished liy the agent. There arc large numbers of women and children wanting homes, whose husbands were killed in Southern or Northern armes. These womeu, as a general thing, make the best house servants. Families, who want help, and will take a woman with one or two children, at fair wages, will be well pleased; and in large towns, if the benevolent will provide a suitable fur the children,under proper instruction and care, the mothers ctm wtm r..-e— -l;,.. pay a part of their wages for the support of their children. These must he cared for, and whore is there a community in all the North who would not cheerfully aid in sueli a work? Should these Freedmeu and Icefugees nut answer the purposes for which they were em ployed, then the applicants will he expected to aid them in procuring auother situation. N. F. Williams, Agent.

Charles Hol den will read an essay on “Public Opinion considered as an auxiliary to the cause.”— These are to be tbllowed by remarks from speakers lrom various parts of the County.— The meeting w-ill be held whatever the state of the w eather, and a stirring occasion is an ticipated. Abe negroes men?—Press. Yes, if of the masculine gender, and 21 years old.—Argus. Good, why not let them vote, then? 'Ilie Fru.hiuii Nyilrm, The special study of Europe af present is Prussia. The remarkable results of the brief war-with Austria attracted immediate atten I tion, first, to the improved weapons with whose aid such results had suddenly been attained, and afterwards to the internal system,not mil itary more than political, social and education al, that was able to make that weapon over whelmingly effective. And the other powers are to-day investigating a system which is so pregnant with suggestions to them of the bet ter modes of training and perfecting a whole people for the sound preservation and sure per petuation of their national character. Thu needle gun, formidable as it is, would have been Htill less so In the hands of a people like the Austrians. The Prussian landwehr is a militia system that embraces the whole able bodied population; hut the secret oi its power, and the source of its inspiration, is the compul sory edneation of the people, the wide diliii sion of intelligence among all classes, and a spiiitot independence which no consciousness of mere sei vice to the governing power could endanger. It is into the secret movements of this machinery, simple enough when once fair ly comprehended, that England anil France are looking with increasing interest. Napole on hurried to his armories after Sadowa. think ing to baffle and heat down Prussia, if it ever came to trial of arms, by putting in the hands of the French troops a weapon superior to the needle-gun in efficiency; hut he overlooks a secret of far greater importance to France than that of the needle-gun. when lie passes by the educational system oi Prussia that makes ev ery man a soldier, ami stili preserves to him all the self respect of a citizen. Perhaps nothin-, save our own citizen-militia system, could lie more nearly perfect than the Prussian; if re suits are to establish the merit of theories, then the Prussian theory has been completely vin dicated. It 1ms been discovered at last, that mere esprit du corps is not enough to lift up a whole people m arms to that height and strength of resolve which will make them in vincible; a profouuder inspiration i s demand ed, born of ideas as well as sentiments, more or less individual in its characteristics, and both embodying and bound up in the welfare of the nation. To attain to it there must Ire general education, the freest thought and ex pression, ami what Prussia happily enjoys, too, a military prestige that has a permanent place in the thought of every citizen. We are glad to n.te this investigation of the national characteristics ot Prussia, which is making with such earnestuess by the other powers. They will find no doubt, in the course ol their quest, that there are other ele ments in the ease than those they went after. England will learn a timely lesson to help her out in the safe solution of the Reform ques tion; and Franco will catch the hint that the process ol dwarfing citizens by withholding lrom them the main qualifications of high citi zenship, is insufficiently compenseted by the most careful cultivation of the military spirit Nor may we pass over the matter w ithout thought ourselves; in reorganizing our militia system, we should find much in the practice and experience of victorious Prussia from which to make promising grafts on our own vigorous but ill-trained stook.—Boston Post.

Messrs, Perry Davis If Son. Providence, /?. /. : Dear Sir i lecl that it is a duly I owe to suffer ing humanity that I should give a relation of the great benefits I have derived irom the use of Perry Davis Pain Killer. Last Summer 1 had the misfor tune to lose two oi my children by that dreadful scourge—the cholera—and in all human probability should have fallen a victim to the pestilence my sell if a kind Provid nee had not provided me help in be hour of need. I first became acquainted wllh the Pain Killer whilst traveling on the river with my husband. A gentleman passenger bad some with him which he recommended in the highest terms as a remedy for the cholera. I thought no more of it at the time, but the same night 1 was attacked by the cholera in its worst form. I resorted to various remedies used to arrest its progress, but all in vain. I was seized with violent cramps, and my discharges began to assuu e the same character as c id those of my dear children pievious to their death. 1 was looked upon as lost, but all at once thought of the PAIN KILLER. My husband obtained a bottle from a fellow passe rger and admin s er«d to me a dose. I experienced almost immediately a cessation oi pain. The dose was repeated at intervals ot fif teen minu es, four or live times, and the result was my complete recovery. I feci toofident that I owe my life to the Pain Killer, and only regret that I had not known ot its e %.trn ordinary virtues earlier. I then might have saved the lives ot my dear children. Since that time 1 have used the Pain Killer in my family extensively, an l the more 1 use it the belter I like it. As a great family medicine it has no equal. Oct 25 fin SARAll SANDEBERY, St. Louis. Brick Machines ! The undesigned manufacture Blake’s Patent Brick Machines, and believe them to be the best Brick Machine in use for several r. asons; 1st, their simplicity of construc tion. lendering them sure in Iheir operation, and not liable to get out of repair: 2nd, the amount of work done by each machine daily, and finally, the low price tor which they are sold These Machines are the only ones used by the Bay State Brick Company of Boston, in their extensive Brick Yanis where 350 M are manufactured in a day by eac.i machine, turning out 12 M in about eight hour’s. \Ve also manufacture Blake’s Patent Steam Pumps, one of which was used to feed the boiler in the late Mechanic’s Exhibition, and received a Medal. The Committee of Examination say ol it, that he ar rangement ol the valves is such, that the steam is always in communication wi1h the piston in one end or the other of the cylinder, which renders it certain an 1 positive in its operation.
