To THE Editor OP THE PRESS: My attention has been called to tbe connec tion of Portland and the West by railroad, by 1 a transaction which occurred under my own observation. A hundred barrels of flour were consigned the other day bv a party in Iowa to a party here, by way of the Grand Trunk road. On the arrival of the flour in Chicago, howev er, the agent there writes to the parly here, un der date 24tli inst., that the Michigan Central Bailroad refused to bill through by way of the Grand Trunk, because the latter relused to agree to the rates of passenger fare proposed by the former. He therefore had to ship by the circuitous route of Buffalo, Albany and Boston. It will be remembered that a few months since there was a meeting of the man agers of the principal railroads connecting the East with the West, in which they agreed to raise the tariff of freight and fares, and to Stand by each other in upholding the same.— Into this combination, or rather, conspiracy Against the public welfare, the Grand Trunk refused to enter, or become a party, and as a punishment, to whip them into t.tis urlioly alliance, the Michigan Central refuses to take ireight over their road, intended lor the Grand Trunk, thereby cutting off Portland irom the West, by its proper chauuel, the Grand Trunk, aud depriving it of tlie great advantages it should derive from the Grand Trunk Bead. it is easy to see me uisaatvous results to the commercial prosperity of our city from this outrageous conduct of the Michigan Cen tral. This road is the only one which connects us with Chicago by its junction with the Grand Trunk at Detroit, and virtually says, that we shall pay tribute to Boston and Now York by compelling every pound of freight shijiped to Portland to take that circuitous route. Take, for instance, the hundred barrels of Hour referred to. The freight and costs are, at least, 25 cts. per barrel more by way of Bos ton than by way of the Graud Trunk, thereby making Boston a cheaper market for flour than Portland, whereas, with proper railroad arrangement, a barrel of flonr or any other article of Western produce can be placed here at as low, or a lower figure, by the Grand ! Trunk road than it can be placed in Boston. And we certainly ought to be able to supply the demands of our own State for all articles ot Western produce, instead of allowing Boston to supply that demand. The question i i, Imw to compel the Michigan Central Bond to lorward freight as it is legally bound to do. One remedy, a troublesome one, is this: for every man who wishes to ship a pound of freight from Chicago by way of the Grand Trunk, to tender that road, the M. C. B. E. the freight money to Detroit, and on their refusal sue them for damages. Let every shipper do this, and bring them lie fore a jury of the country, and it might bring them to rea son. Let all business men interested, unite to give no business or patronage to the Boad, which undertakes to say to every merchant, you shall ship your freight as we say, without any regard to cost, because we have a quarrel with the Grand Trunk. I know wc have powerful odds to contend against. This B lilroad combination of which the Michigan Central is a part represents a capita! of, at least, 8150,000,000 millions. There is the N. Y. Central, the N. Yr. and Erie, the Pennsylvania Central, the Great Western, the Michigan Central, &e., ail in this wicked com bination to deplete the public for their own benefit. In my opinion, one of the greatest dangers to the welfare of this country, is the Bailroad monopoly, interwoven in its very fibres by its network of iron, and concentrat ing such immense wealth in the hands of a few managers. We hear much said against specu lators for attempting to control the markets, hut their power dwindles into insignificance when compared with t he combinations of these immense railroad companies, which will raise the price of freight 100 per cent in 24 hours, and visit their vengeance on any road that stands out against their extortion. Pnnl Clif ford was a genteel highwayman and only re lieved an occasional traveler of his surplus coin and jewelry; and so with highwaymen of oltioD time generally; but nowadays, onr rail roads exact tribute from every man, woman and child in the country, whether they travel on their highways or remain at home, by their enormous charges for fare and freight, I am told even the Grand Trunk,which charg ed for flour one dollar per barrel for freight from Chicago 60 days ago, now charges two and a quarter, though it co3ts no more to carry the barrel of flour on this 30tli day of November than it did on the 30th day of September last; but lake and canal navigation is about closing, and all freight must come by rail. Hence, railroads take advautage of this and put the screws on the people just as far as they can possibly bear. This shows the nature of the beast. Now, every d ollar ot this overcharge for freight is paid first, by the wholesale dealer, charged over hv him to the retail purchaser, and by him to tiie consumer; thus enhancing the price of every pound of pork, flour, lard or beef, brought to us from the West. We need then have no fears of speculators or manufac turing monopolies, wlule this railroad monopo ly is eating up (he substance of the people. It is said, corporations have no souls, but railroad corporations certainly have a sole, and that sole is upon the necks of the people. T.

LATEST NEWS BY TELEGRAPH TO THE PORTLAND DAILY PRESS. ! Mou lay Morning, December 3, 1866. ---N---—^ FROM WASHINGTON. NAVAL AFFAIR*. Receipt* ot Internal Revenue, The Impeachment of the Tresident. Arrest of Jolrn H. Surratt. t'ONUHKatSIONAL AFFAIR*. Washington, Deo. 1. Maj. (Jen. Sheridan has forwarded to the War Department a refutation of the charges of in humanity against officers at Dry Tortngas. Dispatches have been received at the Navy Department to-day from Capt. William Rey nolds, commanding the United States steamer Lackawanna, under date of Oct. 5th,from Mon tevideo, announcing his arrival at that place. All well on hoard. Rear Admiral Gordon, commanding the South Atlantic Squodrou, under date of Oct, tilth, reports the arrival of the steamer Monoc acy at Rio Janeiro. Commander E. Simpson, commanding the United States steamer Mohican, under date of Oet. 17th, reports his arrival at Maranban. Bra zil, thirteen days from Barbadoes. The receipts ot Internal Revenue to-dav amounted to $l,625,94.',.S5. A large number of Congressmen arrived here to-night. There are about thirty Senators and seventy members of the House in the city. There seems to be no doubt of a quorum of both Houses on Monday. The best humor pre vails among them irfer poctive of party. So for as can be ascertained by conversation and otherwise, the idea ot introducing articles Of impeachment against die President, finds little if any favor. The press it seems will now be more largely represented at Washington during the ap proaching session of Congress than heretofore, there being accessions to the usual numlier of correspondents. me .rresiaonrs message will be about the same length ot that of last year* and will occu py about one hour in reading. The Republican members of Congress, num bering about fifty, held a caucus to-night at the Cauitol. Hon. Thaddeus Stevens pre sided, and Hon. Mr. Ingersoll acted as Secreta ry. A committee to consist of nine members to prepare the business for an adjourned meet ing for Wednesday night next was appointed. The caucus designated Speuker Colfax to re ply to the address of welcome to Congress to be delivered by Chief Justice “Carter” on Monday afternoon at the Capitol. Various Republican association clubs nave made ar rangements to proceed thither in a procession, as a part of the programme. The cauctts was not exclusive in naming their orat :f, but sug gested that the Senate i ppoint one of their own members to perform a similar part. Hon. Thaddeus Stevens was selected to respond to the toast “Congress of the United States” to be proposed at the banquet in the Fair build ing on Monday night. The caucus Iiad an in teresting time in discussing the subject of re movals from and appointments to office. Va rious instances ot wb?t they characterized as gross injustice on the part of the President were mentioned. The sentiment among them was that good men have been displaced to make room for had ones. In view of this the caucus unanimously recommended that the Senate reject all nominations made merely on political grounds. Hon. R. P. Spaulding said he had no doubt the Senate would reject all who oimht 10 be rejected. Our Government had information as long ago as last winter that John H. Surratt had gone to Europe. The person who communi cated the fact, conversed with him daring the voyage across the Atlantic, and also reported that Surratt believing he was for from danger, was free and outspoken concerning his connec tion with the assassination conspirators. To-night Secretary Seward received a dis patch dated to-day as follows: “I have arrested John H. Surratt, one of President Lincoln’s assassins. There is no doubt about identity. (Signed,) Hale, U. S. Consul General, Alexandria, Egypt.” _ An additional number of Congressmen ar rived here to-day, and there is no doubt that a quorum of both Houses will he in attendance to-morrow. As there 13 no organization to be perfected, it is only necessary as a preliminarv p-.-oceeding to ascertain the tact of the quorum in the customary way. The next step is the appointment of a joint committee to wait on the President and inform him that a quorum of both Houses have assembled, and are ready to receive any communication he may have to make. These proceedings will not occupy per haps more than an hour, and should there be hindering occurrence, the message may ire ex pected early in the afternoon. Copies of it, and of the reports of all the heads of the De partments, and of the Commissioner of Inter nal Feveuue, have already been dispatched from this city by special messengers and other wise, to tlie principal cities in all sections of the country, a i onerous disposition being manifest ed by all the high officials to accommodate the press, in order that the public may have at the earliest period.information concerning the ex ecutive departments of the government.

Lynch and other Fenians appealing for new trials, the budget was given this afternoon in McMahan’s I case. The Chief Justice stated at length the law uiid(4i' which the prisoners were tried, and after reviewing the different objections to tho indictments raised by the prisoner’s counsel, said he was of the opinion that all tho grounds taken hy the prisoner’s counsel for granting ■ the rule to show cause had failed, and that if granted would be merely wasting time and words to no purpose, as the Court would not have made it absolute. After the most careful consideration he could arrive at no other con clusion than to refuse the rule. Justice Hag er ty then delivered judgment on the ease of the Queen vs Lynch. Having recapitulated tho objections, he stated that he perfectly concur red in the views expressed bythe Chief Justice, and having devoted much care to study all the different points involved, and the objections raised, and had como to the decision that no sufficient grounds had been made out to war rant the Court in granting the rule. Justice Morrison delivered judgment in the ease of the Queen vs. Schoolc, and stated that he perfect ly concurred with the learned Chief Justice and Justice Hagerty in the course they had pursued. He had no donbt of the law on the subject, and must therefore refuse the rule.— Mr. McKensie then moved for leave to appeal. The Chief Justice, then said the Court antici pated such a motion, and having refused the rule, they did not consider that they would be warranted in granting the application. Chief Justice Itichards delivered judgment in the case of the Q ueen vs. Slavin, to grant the rule on the same grounds as those urged by the other Judges. Swkbtsbuby, C. E., Dec. 2.

Mr.Henderson introducedthc following reso lution yesterday iu the House, which lias been unanimously adopted in both branches of tho Legislature: Whersas, The general assembly would do in justice to the great heart of Georgia not to give some formal expression of their respect for tho character and services of tho illustrious prison er of State, Jefferson Davis, all the generous pulses of that heart are in full unison and sym pathy with his sufferings and misfortunes: its warm affections cluster around the fallen chief of a once dear, hut now, abandoned cause.— There they will cluster and centre while men admire all that is chivalrous in nature; while they regard all that is noble iu virture; there fore, the General Assembly Resolve, That their sincerest and warmest sympathy are tendered to Mr. Jefferson Davis in Ins confinement, and they look forward with anxious solicitude to the day when a magnan imous and patriotic President shall put an end to his confinement, and by the interposition of executive clemency restore him to a people lor whom he so faithfully struggled, and on ac count of whom he has endured With Christian fortitude the hardships of a rigorous imprison ment.

F.’s are to give one of their agreeable and popular entertainments at Mechanic's Hall, Monday, the 10th of December, the pro ceeds to be for the benefit of tho poor of the city. The sufferers by the fire have had much of the sympathy and aid of the good public, anil have occupied much of its attention, tor the the four months past; somebody must have a kind eye to the general poor of the town, and we are sure our people will wiiliugly give their support and presence in a movement more es pecially tor their help, chough we are not aware that sufferers by the fire are necessarily to be excluded Irorn tho benefactions in ques tion. At auy rate, our readers will bear us witness that we never promised thorn a first, rate time, when the It. F.’s have offered to en tertain them, and they did not get it. Theie is to bo a concert, in which tho best native til- , ent of the vicinity is engaged, a dance, music by Chandler and his friends, a great variety of' beautiful (Jhristmas emblems, refreshments in the usual style of the ft. F.’s, and other things which we, who arc not in the Ring, cannot en large upon; the bills will und mbtedly appear in due season. Bell fob Chy Hall.—The Star,suggests the propriety of putting a large and powerful hell upon City Hail, lbr the purpose of sound ing fire alarms. The suggestion is a good one, and the weight of the bell should not be less than ten thousand pounds. We do not think there is any necessity for a bell tower. Let the bell be placed on the roof of the building, with out any covering whatever to confino the sound, and its tones can be heard in every part of the city. The advantage of a hell in that place, which can be sounded in a moment by the officer iff charge of the police office, must be apparent to every one, and we hope the city authorities will place one there. Dancebous Places.—There are many dan gerous places iu this city, caused by excava tions, which, at night, are not properly guard ed or lighted, so that pedestrians may avoid them/ One of these is on Cotton Street, and a few nights since Mr. Ilus Carter in passing down that street to his store, fell into it.— Though, fortunately, he was not injured mote - rially, yet a good suit of clothing was spoiled. Persons who are excavating in the streets or sidewalks, should he particularly careful iu covering thorn uo at night, or place lights around them to warn people off. Is a Hubby for THASKSomsa—A couplo of lails named Thom a O’Donnell and Daniel Driscoll, being fearful that they would not get their fill of pastry on Thanksgiving day, un dertook to supply themselves on Wednesday by breaking a window in the kitchen of Me. French’s house on Maple streot and appropri ating a number of pies just from the oven.— The young gormands wars arrested by officer Gerts and made to return the pastry they had stolen, and, after a severe reprimand were let off by Mr. French. The Advertiser. — Mr. J. T. McC-regor,' who for some time past has been the local edi tor ol the Portland Advertiser, gives notice in the last number that he “succeeds to the exclu sive control and responsibility of its columns, editorial and financial.” He further states that ho “soeks no political control, hut keeps iu a condition to indulge independent thoughts for himself and correspondents.” We wish him success in his undertaking. The New Hotel.—Onr informant was en tirely mistaken in his statement that the Nat ural History Society lot on Congress street had been purchased by Messrs. Shepley & Jose.— The lot has been purchased by Mr. Hanson of Buxton;and, furthermore we have It from an authentic source that Messrs. Shepley &■' Jose do not contemplate erecting a hotel on the Elm House lot. Steamer New Bruuswiok lroin Eastport and St. John, arrived here Saturday eveping and proceeded to Boston.

Also a largo stock of photograph and other aitist materials Mirror plates of al! styles and sizes famished frames re-gilt in the best manner, and pictures or other ornaments framed with neatness aud dispatch. Give Mr. H. a call. Caution to Builders.—A gentleman who was building a couple of stores on Foie street and had placed in them a couple of brick sala manders, for 'he purpose of drying the plaster ing, felt rather uneasy about them Saturday night, and went down about ten o'clock to ex amine them. Ho found that oue of them hud burned through the floor. Cal iug to his as sistance two of the bunk watchmen, they suc ceeded iu putting out the fire. About an hour afterward the bank watchmen, smelling smoke, discovered that the floor under the other sala mander was on fire. Before they had succeed ed in putting that out, the floor under the first oue had again caught. After an hour’s hard Work they stopped the fires, and pulled the sal amanders to pieces, piling the bricks into tho street. Olr Streets.—Wo trust something will he dono at the meeting of tho City Council this evening, to remedy the horrid condition of onr street- and sidewalks. Wc know that our worthy Street Commissioner is doing all he can, bp^ with our streets in their present situ ation what can one man, and with such a force as he has at his command, do? Tho like of our streets has never before appeared, and it can liardly lie supposed that the force which we have had for some years, cau nuta be at all ade quate to the necessities of the present case.— Give the Commissioner an assistant and pro vide them with all the force they want to clean up the streets and sidewalks, aud make them passable this winter.' Portland & Kociiesjlii lUmtOAO. — In consequence of the delay iu the transportation of freight belonging to Portland and eastern merchants, over the Grand Trunk Railway, the Price Current suggests iliat our citizens turn their attention to the Completion of tho Portland & Rochester Railroad, believing that it “ can be made the most expeditious, availa ble additional avenue to the West. by tapping intersecting lines anil buildi rig a few miles of road.” The matter is one well worthy the con sideration of the merchants of Portland, espec ially produce dealers. The complaints of de tention of freight at Sainirf has become gener al among our flour dealers, and it is high timo that something should be done to relieve them. Marine Disaster— Thirteen Lives Loit.— Capt. Joseph W. Dyer yesterday received a dispatch from New York, stating the ship Kate Dyer, Capt.

The play is one of great interest, and apart from the de sire already manifested to see Dollie once more on the stage, should attract a huge assemblage. We ieel confident she will he welcomed back by a crowded and appreciative audience. Caution.—Several lads have been injured re cently by falling from stilts—the practice of walking on them being quite common among tlia boys. Oue lad named John O'Neal had one of his arms broken by tailing from a pair of these : tilts. Some of the lads are iu the habit of strapping their feet to the stilts, which is very dangerous. St. Luke’s Church.—After the services at tliis Church yesterday, Rev. Dr. Burgess read to the congregation his resignation of the Rec torship, which he has sustained ever since its formation.

Se nor Romero has uo information on the subject, and up to this evening nothing was known in I the diplomatic corps of the reported crossing, except conflicting newspaper statements. Mr. Seward has not communicated with the French Minister of late. The whole course of the President and Secretary of State relating to the Mexicau question has convinced all for eign representatives hero that both these offic ials are bent upon forcing a difficulty w:th Na poleon. 'These ambassadors have, on the oth er hand, no doubt ot Nupoleou’9 sincerity in . the withdrawal of liistroops. It has come to light that more than a year ago the plan of creating trouble with France was urged upou Mr. Johnson and Seward by prominent rebels, they giving the opinion that it was the only way of forcing the President’s policy upon Cougresg. Mr. Johnson refrained at that time from taking such a step, though Mr. Seward urged it, hut both have gone actively to work in the matter since the elections. A letter just received in semi-official circles from the city of Mexico, written alter the departure of Campbell aud Shermau was known there, says that Marshal Bazaine stab J Ireely that there was uo cause to anticipate trouble with the French authorities from the presence of Gener al Sherman, so convinced were all there that the Emperor was acting in good faith. The principal officers of the French army were speaking Very highly of General Sherman's record and seemed pleased at the idea of en tertaining him. The same letter, speaking au thoritatively aud irom tbo personal observa tion ot the writer, state-, as a farther evidence of the good faith of the Emperor, that in ac cordance with orders from Maishul Bazaine the destruction of quantities of partially worn military material had beg n and the service able material was about ready to be shipped. Gen. Grant has of lute been more outspoken than usual oo iioliticaJ subjects and has given pretty full expression to his views on rccon i struction. Iu recent conversation with ex | rebels, he has plainly told them that they mis took their position! that they had openly mado war upou the government and had been de feated in their appeal to anus, and hat they were now on parole; that the righto they talked ! about had been forfeited by their treason, and their return to their former position in the gov ernment by in the haiids of Congress; but if ! they persisted in rejecting tic amendment to I the Constitution, they vo*fd ouiv have to go j farther ant! fare worse. Tiie members of Congress who hos-e arrived here se m generally disposed to give a reason , able time to the rebel States to accept the terms that have been off red them, and if they fail to . do this to go cm and regulate for them as icr ritories. subject to the general government.— I Dispatch to Boston JdcoriiJt > .
