Mr. Beckwith enclosed copies of the correspondence, of which he has sent dupli cates to Mr. Derby, at New York, for the infor mation ot patentees whom it may concern.

Hie Governor’s message was laid before the Legislature to-day. It takes a gloomy view oi the present condition of affairs, and attributes the depression of agriculture and business in the State to the intolerance of her conqueror*, and urges that the whole population should be stimulated to work by letting them see that labor is honorable and idleness reprehensible. The message is mainly devoted to State affairs, and says the result of the experiment of free labor has been highly encouraging under the circumstances.

Americans in Paris.—The number of Amer ican visitors in Paris is rapidly increasing, and it is proposed to establish an American club. A correspondent of the London Moruing Post writes: were never so many transatlantic no bility in France as at the present moment. The Grand Hotel and the Louvre in'ght be sup ported by the northerners and southerners alone, it the directors thought proper to be ex clusive. A c the theatres, in the streets, and in many drawing-rooms you hear the unmistaka ble ’coloring of speech’ which becomes -pleas ing when the lady speaks French instead of English. Then again the American ladies cer tainly add to our female beauty in Paris. In old times we used to get few young ladies from the United States; but now‘mother’is seen with two or three charming daughters, with delicate features, clear complexions, and the halt sad sentimental expression, which a capricious climate in America have imposed on the English race. These young ladies are doing their European tour with their parents, and are sure to be go ing to old Rome and Naples. They even begin to speak of Egypt and the East, and I am sure that travelling America is going eventually to invade St. Petersburg. 1 do not hear London or England much spoken about. The tide, rising in New York, floats over the British Isles, and spreads all over the continent of Eu rope, even washing the walls of Jerusalem. I have endeavored to find out how many Ameri can families have settled in Paris, and what is the number of the American floating popula tion. But neither American Minister nor American Consul appear to posses any precise statistics. There are probably three or four thousand Americans in Paris, some of whom are doubtless very rich, and begin to appreci ate imperialism, and titles, and society affecta tion—in tact, everything that is genteel in the aristocratic world.” A Floating Railway.—A floating railway, the invention of M. Freland, of Bonleux, has just been patented in France. It is described as likely to be of considerable service in loading and unloading vessels in ports having insuffi cient quayage accommodation, of where the depth oi water does not permit ships of heavy tonnage to enter except at high tide.

The fine location, and Mr. Perkin’s reputation as a thorough and successful teacher, will doubtless attract as many pupils as can be received. Tlic school is worthy of the patronage of parents who wish their sons to enjoy the privileges and influences ot a Christian home while acquiring mental discipline and culture. The Poultry Market. — The amount of poultry brought to market yesterday was quite large, but it was scattered over the city, in stead of, as in former years, concentrating on Milk and Lime streets. Prime turkies were sold in the morning at 2D cents per lb., but, afterwards, the price declined to 21 a 20 cents.

Fire in Kennebunk.—About two o’clock Sunday morning the round cornered building near the Unitarian Church aud the Liberty Pole in Kenne' uuk village was discovered on tire, and very soon burned to the ground; it was owned by Widow Sally Lord and another, and uninsured. The upper story was used tor a town hall and Selectmen’s office, and tho low er floor by Mr. Charles Stevens, jeweller, and by Mr. George W. Oakes, dealer in stationery and fancy goods. The town loses every record memorandum and voucher connected with the Selectmen’s and Assessors’ department. Mr. Stevens saved a portion of his goods, but the loss of Mr. Oakes was complete, not an article being saved; a severe blow to the young men, who have no insurance, or other resources for again commencing business. The night be ing calm and the adjacent buildings covered with snow prevented an extension of the fire, rather than from any virtue in a superannua ted old “tub,” or any life In a decayed fire de j partment.

Because Yankee intelli gence knows how to rear children to niaturiU. while foreign ignorance and filth kills, almost as soon as bom; for out of everv hundred chil dren dying, eiftaty-eight arc of‘foreign par. nt ago, and this has bet n tin- rate tor tee last five years in New York city, v.

The fact is, neither Yankee men nor Yankee principles, nor Yankee t lift, will ever die out, while this planet is inhabited;and if it Is over depopulated by a Conflagration, the last | survivor of a smouldering world will lx: Jona i than, at the death singly aud alone, rcsoiiltely trying to put out the fire; il by famine, the last loaf of bread will be owned by a Yankee. Something New.—An “Automatic Turn Table” has been constructed at S'.tco Liver Sta tion, Bortlaud & Rochester Railroad, liy a young mechanic, Mr. Freeman Hanson, which bids fair to make an entire re volution jn the construction of railroad turn tobies. It is tum id by the weight of the engine, running upon an inclined platform set upon -ar wheels, aud balancing upon a pivot over to the upper side of the track, wheu the platform and engine is carried around a half circle, turning the engine by its own weigh I. This is a capital invention, labor saving, safe anil rapid of execution, and it seems must come into general use. Its coil ■traction is simple, and at very much less cost than those now in use, turned by hand or steam pfiwer. Mr. Hanson is a young mechanic, whose gen ius, as displayed in this Instance, will entitle him to a high position among inv ntorp. He has secured his invention by Letter’s 1’atentin the United States, and wc learn that measures have lieen taken tci secure patents in England, France and Spain. We trust lie mayireapa harvest of wealth from his new invention. General Grant and the Presidenb—The Boston Advertiser’s \Vasliington correspondent says: The recent interview of General Grant with the President concerning the amnesty-suffrage compromise, appears to have be«*n of a very in teresting and significant character. The Gen eral earnestly opposed the scheme as an utterly unsafe ba*is of reconstruction, tending to res tore rebels to absolute power in the rebellious section. He urged Mr. Johnson to accent and recommend the amendment to the Con stitu tion as a fair and just plan of reconstruction, taking tho ground that, the people hail declared for it in unmistakable terms at the elections, and that it would be unwise to disregard their expressed wishes. It is said that the President listened to these opinions without indicating his own views, but leaving a decided impres sion upon the mind of the General that bis ad vice would be disregarded. It is known that General Grant is of the opinion that if Mr. Johnson would give tho amendment his sup port, it would immediately be ratified by enough Southern States to make it a part of the Con stitution. A Telegraphic Anecdote.—An Hnglisli paper tells a story of a singular application of the telegraph, which may well go into tlje per manent annals of the electric wire. T!ip spec ial correspondent in London of a Glasgow pa p r was accustomed every evening at a fate hour to bring bis despitch to a t* legraim office in the upper story of a high building, the street door of which wn closed at a certain hotir, and attended aft i that by a porter. The function ary,"!! the occasion in question, went sound asleep, and tho most energetic poundiigs of the corrcsnon lent on the door were niispcceSs ful in awaKOuing him to his duty. After half an hour or so ofincreasing impatience, the cor respondent hit upon a novel idea. He went to an adjoining telegraph station, and sent a mes sage to Glasgow, requesting t ie clerk them to telegraph to the clerk in the inaccessible up per story in London to go down staits and awaken the port* r. This was done with en tire siicccM; in about twenty minutes, the mes sage travelling a distance of over four hundred miles to arouse a man only separate I from the visitor by a door.

The nomination of a school committee in the municipal caucus of tlm Kepuhlicojcu of Cain bridge Monday evening, brought up the ques tion of corporal punishment. Professor Agassiz a ul other distinguished gentlemen participated in the discussion. The following account of the proceedings is condensed from the Boston Advertiser’s report: After the completion of the municipal nom inations, with the exception of the school committee. Dr. Morrill offered the following n Dilution: "Jiesolvetl, That it is the opinion nfthis lm-ct •ng that corporal punishment of girls should lie abolished in each and every public school in this city.” Dr. Wvman advocated his resolution in a speech of considerable length, examining ami answering the arguments i.t the investigating committee of the school hoard, in their report sustaining the action of the tuaehei s engaged in the recent whipping ofn school girl, lie observ ed that until hist April he was not aware that a rule existed which authorized the infliction of Corporal punishment upon girls in the public sc.iools iii Cumluiduc. lu Driissia such imn isintii'?:t had Itfvn ttuolfrhcil f<»x :i quarter tjf a century, and in many of cmr citiesit had -o 1"U«J hccn unejupioyed that it was no longer u mooteil question. Tl.e remarks of Dr. \Vyma n w*r« heartily applauded. His Honor Mayor Merrill opposed tlie reso lution. He leiuurked that ?here never was a public marter so grossly exav erated and mi> iv rifle11tod as the whipping ease in tho AI1 stou rcliool had been. Noitner tlie Cauibrid^o newspapers nor the Doston newspapers had ro.Gvrtly State J it. It wah Rcncrally believed Umt ilu1 f^rl was whipped lor whimpering.— The fact was that she was whipped, for porsi-l.-nt, general insubordination. TU« whipping might have been injudicious, us lie believed it was; but it would hut do to discharge ev.-rv officer lor I lie commission of one injudi cious act. Mi. outrks Foster, father of the whipped girl, was the next speaker. He charged th.j school committee with a design to cover up tbs action of the teachers of the Allstou school, by conducting the iuvestige|iou secretly. Mr. John Barber opposed the resolution, ari l declared that the censure bestowed upon tha teachers and tlie school board were already producing insubordination in the schools. .Professor Agassiz now took the platform, amid great applause. Me remarked lliat In. Collie forward with great reluctance. For twenty years he had not taken partin a public meeting; list while matters so important wi re under discussion, he could not reconcile it to bis duty as an American citizen to sit still.— He would not at empt to argue this case, for ho could only repent wliat Dr. Wyman had so beautifully uttered. For forty years lie hail been a teacher—beginning when'he was four teen years old—and he bad never yet laid his hand on a child. [Applause.] He believed, that when it became necessary to inflict corpo ral punishment, it was an evidence that tbo teacher had lost his seif-control. He paid a high compliment to the teachers of Cambridge, and remarked that many of them had too largo a number of pupiis under their charge, and iJio number of teachers should therefore lsi be increased. He ltuew how much the public schools had douc for the freedom of the repub lic; hut they were susceptible ol improvement, and he knew of no better place to begin that improvement than in Cambridge. The num ber of studies It the public schools should be so increased as to tit the scholars fur entrance into the universities. Thus might Cambridge l>e mode the intellectual head of the cot iniuni ty. m. n,lessor oiiHiininn; uecmreu ms convic tion that the application of corporal punish ment was prolific of evil. It. could not l>« used on young children without blunting their sensi bilities anil lessoning tlieir confidence in their teachers and every .me else; and no girl of ten years old or upward could be whipped without hardening or breaking her heart. Joshua Coffin, of Nowbnryport, immortalized by Whittier, and a School teacher for forty years, was rough in exterior aud coarse in manner, but lie had a heart as soft as a girl's, and a clear bead. Tho speaker remembered him at a teachers’ meeting, where the subject of corporal punishment was under discusssion. Many of the teachers trail advocated afrequont use of it. Mi . Coffin rose, aud in about ten words ended tho debate and settled the ques tion. “If" said he, “I wiftited to make a boy a rascal. I would treat him as if ho was one.— If I want jd to make him manly, I would trout him kindly and generously.” Sir. J. A. Thayer moved to amend the re solve, liy striking out tho words “of girls,” aud made a brief speech iu favor of his motion.— The inutiuu was adopted witli but one dissent ing rote. Cries of “Put him out,” ‘ Send him over to Master Bobcrts," were wade when tbo solitary “no” was given. Dr. Wyman’s resolution, as amended, was then adopted by a nearly unanimous vote. Mr. Zen.is W. Bliss moved to nourinate tho old school board. Mr. Thayer said the meeting hail decided against the rule and strap, and they should now nominate a board agreeing with them in sentiment, and let the opposition get Up anoth er ticket, if they desired to. Mr. II. O. Houghton spoke of the im poll ry ot elec ling a new hoard composed wholly oflu CJIperieneed men. The vote on the motion to nominate the old board was token by tellers, and the motion was lost—151 to 218. Great applauso followed. After considerable confusion, and several In effectual efforts to adjourn, it was voted, on motion of Mr. Merrill, that a emumittec of five from each ward be appointed from the floor to nominate a board of school committee. Several members of the committee, as finally raised, declared themselves in favor of tho old hoard and wished to decline, hut the meeting refused consent. Tim committee retired at 11 1-2 o'clock, and after halt an hour's consult:ition reported :t list which w.is adopted without opposition. The hail was packed to its full capacity dur ing tli" whole evening, and the mcetiug wav one of the most exciting ever held In Cam bridge.
