t< VILY PRES&. POHTLAND. •1«» Friday Morning-, Pecembtr I4, 1BG6. Fiit ltiM'iiMioii. The Argus a few Jays ago asked what, m the opinion of the Press, should be done in case a man, by writing and publishing, should, to use Judge Stiry's language, * distuib tlie public peace, or attempt to subvert the gov ernment.” We answered tlie question prompt ly and fully. As tlie Argus still complains Unit its enquiry has been neglected, we are led to examine the matter again. What notion til.; Argus attaches to the words quoted above, it is of course impossible to know. It would seem however that written and published words can hardly be held to disturb the put hc peace,unless there is some disturbance; 1 hat they can hardly be regarded as effective instruments for the subversion of tlie govern ment, uuless there is some actual attempt to carry them into effect. Atr attempt to suh. vert the government means treason, lint un der the American Constitution there is no such thing as treason without an actual levy ing of war upon the United States. Thee can therefore be no attempt to subvert the government, within the meaning of out laws, by words alone. The fact of war must be su peradded, before any words can become treas onable. IT this is plain ana unueniame, as it seems, it follows that the opinion of the Press was asked on the subject ot treasonable writing and publishing, and we tried to make the re ply so clear that the Argus could not misun derstand it. Our neighbor now declares him self satisfied on that point, but wants to know something else—to wit, “in what light those should be regarded who burned the Constitu tion in a public pow-wow on the Fourth of July, who declared that Constitution a cove nant with death and an agreement with hell, die., Ac.” These absurd questions were ap pended to its first enquiry. They are now re peated as the most important part of that en quiry. We replied to them before. We are perfectly willing to try again. The contusion of mind which the Argus exhibits touching this matter, doubtless exists in other quarters, is sufficiently diffused to justify the at tempt to introduce clearer views. When these eccentric persons made a bon fire ot the Constitution and pronounced it a covenant with death and an agreement with hell, they probably meant to convey the im pression that they were dissatisfied with some of its provisions. Now we believe they had a perfect right to entertain and to express their dissatisfaction. The Argus opposes the pending amendments to the Constitution. If they should he adopted, the Argu3 would be dissatisfied, and would have a perfect right to say so. “It is and should be,” as we said he fore, „every man’s privilege to hold'and to ut ter-his opinions, no matter how strange, nov el or unpopular, and the law should and does protect him in the exercise of that right.”— The safety of our institutions lies in a free discussion of their principles. If any man sin cerely believes, with Mr. Seward, that a mon archy would be better for us, it is his right to say so and to defend his opinion with all the arguments he can muster. Logie must be an swered witli logic. If our institutions are at tacked by argument, by argument, must they be detended. But violence mast equally be answered by violence. When we are contend ing with armed treason, or with foreign en emies, what really and plainly strengthens the hands raised against us becomes itself a part of the grand nt tncH t*mi iuu,t tso jfealf with accordingly. If the Argo, is not now satisfied, the ques tion will perhaps be simplified by the promul gation of its own “very decided views on the subject.” We are curious to know what they are. _ England and France in Eoypt.—A Lon don letter-writer gossips as follows: It is admitted, at last, that Maximilian has probably abdicated and w ill return to Europe. The Empress Carlotta, who was supposed to be fast recovering, is said to have had a relap-e, and to distrust everybody. The Emperor Na poleon may not he sorry to have his entire ar my at home, hut the abandonment of Mexico is a humiliation to him, and a triumph to his enemies. It makes it the more necessary for him to keep on good terms with the universal suffrage that raised him to power. He must satisfy France. Now, who 13 to blame that he is driven from Mexico? The United States, no doubt; but the action of the United States is natural, aud therefore excusable. The real blame falls on England. It was England who, by refusing to join France in recognizing the Confederate Government, made possible this humiliation; and it is on England that will fall the punishment for this disgrace. The first blow will bo struck at what Englishmen consider a vital spot—by the occupation of Egypt. The Times has assured us that Eng land will fight for Egypt tooth aud nail. Then she must fight Frauce. Egypt is half French already. Young Egyptians are educated in French colleges. A French company has uni ted the Red Sea with the Mediterranean; the Egyptians have organized a Constitutional Government on the French mcdel. Egypt will exist under a French protectorate, or the tri-color will fly from the summits of the pyra mids. And if England goes to war with France on that account, by herself, or as the ally of Russia and Prussia, then England will be invaded and Waterloo avenged. An Aroostook correspondent of the Maine Farmer, in answering the inquiries of some one in regard to the State of Maine, writes as follows about that portion of Aroostook where he resides: The Plautaiion of Sursficld, is one and a half miles from Fort Fairfield, in the county of Aroostook, lying on the boundary line In tween this State and the Province of New Brunswick. I believe this plantation was lot ted out six years ago for settling, aud now it is nearly all settled by good thritty farmers.— Our soil is of a very dee.i redish eolnr, varying from one to two feet deep in this county. It would seem almost impossible to those that know nothing about it, now soon tin- forest can he converted into growing fields of grain and «rass. The prices of farms vary according to x-atiun and quality; farms with fifteen to twenty-five acr w eleared in this Plantation, are worth from £100 to Wtl. Wild land be longing to proprietor* i* worth from $IJS0 to *?.«! per acre; State laud ISO cent* per acre, to be pud in building roads iu the township where the land is situated. Wage* twsnty hve dollar* per month for form Ishur, and from tw.-uty to twenty-five dollar* to work In the woods in the wniter season. Mechanics' wage* vary from fcUJU to 0 per day. Our princi pal crop* are oat*. buckwheat aud potatoes - Wheat tin* past season ha* done very well, le tter than for five year* past. We always find a market lor our produce at Fort Fairfield the prior of oat* varying the past lour year* from do to Ml cent* per bushel; buckwheat 43 to Ml cent* per bushel, and |X>tatne* from 10 to 30 or at* per bushel Corn and beans proved a vary good crop for those that had planted them |M« season, as we had no frost this foil uulil late. The average yield of oat* till* sea sou will, we mink, hr about do bushel* per am. although aosue pieces will yield 70 iMisb •k per acre. The average yield of buckwheat thiN season is about dObushel* per acre.

Ukhsiblb.— The Memphis Post records a highly honorable incklent at a recent dinner I in Richmond, of which a son of General Lee was the hero. The guests were mostly ex-rcb el officers: The wine went round after dinner, and one fiery younj blood, who, with all liis hard knocks, bad had no discretion knocked into his boiling brain, arose and proposed “The Fallen Flag.” Colonel Lee promptly placed his hand upo,: the glass and arose. “Gentlemen,” said he, “this will not do. We arc paroled prison ers. We now have but one flag, and that is the flag of our whole country—the glorious old stars and stripes. I can recognize no other fight for no other, and will drink to no other.” Mowngt-nieul of tin Morse Kuilrmirt. , Mb. l.niTOB, -Permit me to r-ply to some parts of the communication signed Church,’ published in the Press the 4tli inst., purporting to discuss ttie question of Sunday travel by street ears, and more than iusinuating that the Westbrook church-goers are not accommo dated by the Suuday ears,—aud on that point allow me to say, the Directors have ordered the cars to run on Sunday at the request of the Westbrook passengers, and if they are no accommodation, they will witli great pleasure be stopped. But the aim oi said article was at the station | room iu this city, aud I uui satisfied that had you read the article iu season, it would not have appeared in the Press. Allow me to quote from it: “Of ah the places of rowdyism and filth to he found iu our city is the Horse Rail road Depot ou Sundays. Peanuts, candy, aud a little of everything is sold there ou that day, and there is not a spot for a body to sit or stand, without getting into tobacco juice.”— There you have it, aud that, too, by a person styling herself a ‘ woman,” and signing “Church" for a signature. Now, to your read ers who know better, such slang will do no harm; but many of your numerous readers do not visit the room in question, and if they have read and credited Miss “Church’s” story, they never will want to visit it, and the object of this article is to disabuse the public in regard to Miss “Church's” communication. Home three or four months ago an anony mous letter came to hand, complaining that the waiting room was cot kept clean, since which the writer, or one of the Directors, has invariably visited the room once or twice every Sabbath, and always found it quiet and neat and clean. No person having a regard for truth could visit that room and then sit down and represent it as the “most filthy place iu Portland.” »ho complains that “peanuts and candy,and a little of everything is sold there.” Peanut shells, if thrown upon the door, would be ob jectionable; but pray tell me how the selling of candy can make any room filthy. As for the.“little of everything,” I will oulj? say that it is a gross outrage upon the attentive and obliging Fessenden Brothers, and their lady like and worthy sister, who have charge of the room. They sell papers and stationary, and a few kinds of choice candy; but the “little of everything” is left to be sold in such places as the police visit, und the proprietors are fined $20 and costs by Judge Kingsbury. As for tobacco-juice, 1 will say that uo room in this city is visited by so many persons daily as the said railroad office, and I will venture to say that no public room in this city is so free from to bacco-juice. Now, having examined the most objectiona ble part of Miss “Church’s” article, I would like to inquire why it was written; and it may not be out of place for me to say that I have endeavored, through you, to have an inter view with said “Church” for the purpose of as certaining the object; but the writer declines to be known. Horse railroads in Maine are a new institution, and it is not surprising that some people think they could manage them much better than the officers in charge, and their advice is given very frequently and gra tuitously. For the time this road has been in operation I think it will compare favorably with any similar road, so far as accidents, rows, or rowdyism are concerned. The Directors have not only invested their money, but have generously given their time without compensa tion. The passengers arc largely reaping the benefit, and I am glad to know that it is so wel' appreciated and patronized. Every effort is made to make it deserving and popular.— No road in this country is running at so low fares, and the cars and teams are of the first class; no other Btrcet railroad within my knowledge provides so commodious a waiting room as this company. I regret to occupy so much of your space and time, but under such representations it is proper that your readers should have the _ Truth. f'onuty Tcinprraucc Association. Tlic next meeting of the Association will be held at Freeport on Thursday, 20tli inst., at 2 o’clock in the afternoon. An essay will be read at the opening by Mr. O. S. Beale, on “Young men and the- Temper ance Cause.” Other arrangements have been made whereby an unusually interesting meet ing may be expected. It is to be understood that these conventions are held for no partisan purpose, but solely for the promotion of Temperance. Members, therefore, of all religious sects, or of no sect, of whatever political party or of no party, of eve ry Temperance organization or ol none, who favor total abstinence from the use of intoxi cating drinks and the application of law to their sale, are cordially invited to attend and freely participate in the exercises. Several eminent persons whose voices have rarely of late years been heard at our gather ings, have engaged to be present on this occa sion. The meeting will bo held whatever the state of the weather. Recent Publications. Essays on Art. By Francis Turner Pal grave, Late Fellow of Exeter College, Ox ford. 16mo. pp. 330. New York: Hurd & Houghton. (Soldby Short & Loring.) Price 81,T5. Most of the essays contained in this volume have already appeared in the London Saturday Review, and other English periodicals, but they will nevertheless he new to the mass of Ameri can readers. They have been very minute ly revised, and in some cases rewritten for the purposes of the present collection. Mr. Pal grave is not a commonplace or shallow critic.— His perceptions are clear and delicate, his taste accurate, and his conception of the proper prin ciple, and functions of criticism just and sound. The first three of these essays, relating to the Royal Academy Exhibitions, will have no spec ial interest for many readers in this country, but the papers on Mulready, Holman Huut, George Cruikshank, Thorwaldsen, Hyppolyte Flandrin, “Japanese Art,” “Sensational Art,” “Poetry and Prose in Art,” "‘Sculpture and Painting," “The Fantese Marbles,” “Thackeray in the Ahliey," and others, will claim attention both by their subjects and by the manner in which these subjects are treated. The chapter uu “Poetry and Prose in Art,” and that on “The Position of Sculpture In England," are as true here as they ran he in the latter country; and we most devoutly wish they could be studied and laid to heart, by all Congressmen who have a voice iu the spending of the public monies ou “N atioual” paintings and statues, aud by all the members of the innumerable “mon ument committees” who are so busily furnish ing our various towns aud cities with the ! frightful aburtious ot fifth-rate artists. Mr. Palgrave says, and says well: “Sculptors of high is true, will always be rare; that a nation shoubl hare one or two such, is matter for lair pride; but the moral is, liu-l thould do our wort, or wr thould leave it auatlrtnpUd, If a no.nuno nl of high quality I*-, required, it is suicidal to give it to any but tb.ise few wlto ran put true poetic life iuto it.” Cnfortunate ly lor us, such men as these, the true artists, are as modest as they are rare, ami seldom have auy talent tor pushing themselves before the public. They are thinking of art, not of how to gain influence in lobbies and among smart business men. and often the world is a loser thereby, li is the business of the public to see and judge Itrtween the false and the true; and such bisiks as the present are invaluable in contributing to our kuutrledge of the true principles of taste and judgment in matters of art. Beethoven's Letters (1790—1838). From the Collection of Dr. Ludwig NohL also his letters to the Archduke Kudolnh, Cardinal Archbishop of Olmutz, K.

(Sold by Davis Any reader who with the published letters of Mozart fresh in his recollection, shall take up these volumes hoping to fi„d in them the same free and unreserved expression of the writer’s mind and heart, will probably experience some thing of disappoinment. The profonnder emo tions of the great musician’s soul, which express themselves so fully in his wonderful music find here hut feeble utterance, or, oftener, non,! at all. The habit of represssion, of something, indeed,closely akin to distrust,produced by his unhappy childhood, his lonely youth and the harsh struggle with poverty, injustice and phy • coal disability which cramped and embittered xis manhood, may be constantly t raced in his •nrrespondeiice. These letters are neverthc ess full of facts aud interesting revelations con rented with the life of Beethoven, as well as with many other prominent personages of bis time. The letters are simple and unconstrain- | bJ, often revealing the deficiencies resulting 1 from imperfect early culture, but showing so tar 1 as they do indicate the thoughts and emotions of j the writer, a character gentle, generous and j noble, the farthest possible removed from the harshness which has often been attributed to j him: tmd they breathe a spirit of kindness aud i devotion to friends, a love of conn try and of j art, and apatient endurance of suffering which compel the warmest sympathies of the reader. To the ever increasing class of those who love the works and revere the genius of the great composer those letters will be especially wel come, for the light they throw on mnuy misun derstood circumstances of his life and upon the origin and significance of many of his compo sitions. The publishers have issued them in very handsome form, and the engraved portrait and tac-simile of one of his works witli which they are adorned will enhance their interest and value. The 1*oems of Alfhek B. Stkeet.—In Two volumes 16 mo. New York: Hurd aud Houghton. This is a very handsome edition of the poet ical works of a writer who has secured a quite extended popularity. Mr. Street attempts no very lofty flights, but he writes with grase, feel ing, and delicacy on a great many themes. In preference to offering any ■ extended criticism ofhis style and powers We present a single ex tract which though taken at random affords a pretty fair specimen ofhis verse. It is (rom a poem entitled “A June Day:” Along that brilliant arch of sky, The clouds display their glittering white; Here, in soft fleecy folds they lie; There, like pure snow-flakes spotted bl ight; Here a curled plume; a castle there, With flag and battlement in air; A rich and radiant sight. Upon yon wood the sunlight lays Its scattered gems, or sheds across A stream of broad deep lustrous blaze, Steeping the leaves in golden gloss.— Or melting through the bowers, its tinge Pencils below a checkered fringe On the wild flower and moss. The balmy wind, when first it wakes, Scarce stirs the foliage round me flung; Then swells it through this tree that shakes Till every leaf has found a tongue; Then swift within yon quivering wood It stirs to song the solitude, As though au organ rung. Like a winged tulip floats arouud The butterfly in airy rings, Anil joyous through the verdant ground Each summer insect chirps and springs; And now and then a wandering bee Darts by me full of life and glee, With music in its wings. These are graceful and musical lines, and had we space we might quote many more from the attractive volumes before us. For sale by Davis Brothers. Gilbert Starr and His Lessons.
