The lli - « oiimioiloR. Below we giveJRmc fuller details of the cir cumstances iitttvudsrfcAlicloss of tlie Bound s’earner Commodqj^^ffi^I^JPut ashore in the late storm. These^^rrticulars are gathered from the Herald aim other New York papers of Saturday: The Commodore was oHe of the regular boats plying between New Y’ork and Stonington, Connecticut, in connection with the Stcning ton Railroad. Bhe left Pier 18 North River, at four o’clock on Thursday evening, under com mand of Capt. E. F. Curtis, having on board about one hundred passengers and a light freight, consisting of dry goods, merchandise, leather, &c., valued at $300,000, and proceeded well until about 8: 30, when :l“terrifie gale arose from the northwest and caught the ves sel off the Stratford Light-house. The gale in creased in l'ury every moment, hut for some time the Commodore braved it finely, though laboring heavily and every tiinborin her shuk ingin such a manner as to create in the minds of the passengers apprehensions of her imme diately going to pieces in the open sea, many of them averring “that she eould not be a sound boat to shake so much." Btill she continued fair on her course, answering her helm perfect ly, being handled in a very fine manner, meet ing with neither accident or mishap until she came near the Cornfield Lightship, beyond New Haven, when the wind began to blow iu a ter rific maimer, attacking the skip with tremen dous fury, rendering her utterly unmanageable. In a few moments she refused to obey her helm, and could not by any means be kept on her course. She was completely at the mercy of the winds and waves, which played with her for a short time as if she were but a feather oil the sui'face of the water. Soon the trying mo ment for all came, when one breaker, more fur ious than all before, struck her with terrific violence, "stove iu” her bulwarks and washed the torwaril decks quite cleau. Her smoke stacks next went by the board, and the din and contusion caused by this accident and the noise of the breaking of furniture, the crash ing of lamps, tables uud almost every movable article in tlie saloon hall, staterooms and cabin, was only excelled when it was announced that the stoves were toppling over and that there was every danger of fire. Many "who before remained comparatively cool and quiet now became intensely excited, and the thought that the most destructive of all the elements had conspired to cause their total destruction took from them most of the intrepidity which so distinguished their behav ior before. It was a trying moment, indeed— the winds roaring with their utmost fury, the snow falling in thick and dampening flakes, to be frozen immediately by the peirciiig wintry blasts, which with all the attendant dangers was enough to chill and freeze the highest and most courageous spirit, and to add to these leasffll trials came the cry of fire, and then the moment came which would shake the noblest and strongest of all on board. Some portions of the ship did catch fire, and were only saved lrom this danger by the almost superhuman exertions of the persons on board, who, after the greatest exertions, succeeded iu subduing the flames, which, with all the danger and the terror they inspired, were almost preferable to the gloomy darkness which followed. The stoves were upset, the tire put out, the lamps smashed and lights .completely extinguished, and theii in the darkness of a cold and snowy December night the ship Commodore was left to he played with by a most fearful and merciless gale; and in this way did the unfort unate vessel continue for two Lours, until one o’clock in the morning, during which period sho was, as before stated, completaly unman ageable, and all on beard expecting her at each moment to go down. lho deck hands, whose duty it was to attend to the comfort and guard the salety of the pas sengers, were not only the most useless in the hour of need, but their conduct added materi ally to the danger of the vessel and the terror of those on hoard. Almost trout the first mo ment many of these men went to their berths, rolled themselves in their blankets, and left til,- vessel to her fate. When tbe pumps had to be worked, and other courses taken for her safety, they refused to work, and only lent li ip when paid by several of the passengers. One gentleman gave his last #20 to one fellow, and another refused $o, as he said there was “no use in working now.” Another party pro em ed, ill some portion of the vessel, a jar of whiskey, brought it on deck, and had a noisy and uproarious carousal; and one of them be came ;o unmanageable that Lieut. Noyes, U. S. N , had to tie him up to jr vent further damage. The work at trie pumps anil else where, was mainly effected by the passengers, many of the women included.' About tour o’clock iu the morning the gale became still more furious, and every effort was made to launch the lile-boats, at which the passengers, almost unassisted by the deck hands, worked with all their might. Several attempts proved unsuccessful, but at last they succeeded iu gettiug out om- of them into the breakers with twenty or thirty passengers iu it, and bearing a hawser ashore which being attached at tlie other eud to the Commodore, and the other hoars being properly manned, the passengers were all lauded safely,though in a wretched condition. Many of them in their excitement to enter the boats .jumped in to the sea, hut were immediately rescued with the exception ot one man who up to a late hour last night was still missing. The passengers, though safe from the wreck, were many of them benumbed aiul almost par alized from the cold and wet. Not one person saved his baggage or a change ol clothes, and the ladies suffered severely from their wet clothes under clothing and all being complete ly soaked, and turning into ice from the keen fro t which prevailed at the time. One of them landed with nothing on save a blanket with which sho provided herself from the wrecked vessel, as did others, but these lilauk ets were afterwards taken from them when on board the qars, by direction of an official of the company. Another woman di -located her leg while getting from the steamer into the boat. All wcic wretched in the extreme.— Cold, wet, ami after having lost all their prop erty they had on board, in thin sorrowful plight, alter partaking of some poor refresh ments, Uiv took their places in the cars and s ar;ed tor New Y ork. Another account says: The boat was leaking very badly. The don key pump was out ol order, and the passen gers comment-! d working the bilge pumps. A passenger offered one of the crew #20 to go in to tlie lower cabin and assist the passengers at i hailing. Tlie deck hand accepted the money J and went below. The colored waiters also re fused to work; they, having procured life pre servers, were seated about the stoves, trying to keep themselves wa: m. The officers did every thing in their power to keep the boat afloat. Tlie crew filled themselves witli liquor from the bar room, most of them becoming hopelessly drunk By tlie constant exertions of the pas sengers the vessel was kept afloat until she drifted into a small cove on Long Island shore, j Here she was anchored until morning when i she was beached and the passengeas safely j landed. After having landed I saw some of the liog-franie.s of the boat, and ton ml that they j were entirely rotten. 1 do not think that the I boat was seaworthy, and think the owuers cul- 1 pable lor allowing her to leave in such weath- | or..

An Idaho paper contains an account of a hard light with a party of Indians, in that ter ritory, on the 7th of November, iu which one Maine man John Dixon, was killed, and an other, Frank Osgood, had a narrow escape, af ter a desperate conflict: On the 7th instant Frank Osgood and John Dixon si acted up Crow Creek to hunt ducks.— j They had proceeded about live miles, and were I near Arnold's runche, when they discoverJd plenty of Indian signs. Osgood said to Dixon, "L: t us make lor a rocky mound,” that was near by, "and have a look lor them,” when a dog that was with them gave the alarm. They then started to run back, and the Indians com menced tiii lg on them. At the fourth shot Dixon fell, being shot through the heart. (>3 good suco ede 1 in getting to the stream, which is lined with large tules and generally deep.— Here one of tlieir boldest warriors sallied in af ter him, parting the tules with his liow, and when within ten feet of him, Osgood shot him through the breast with tine shot. The lndiau died immediately. He then shifted his posi tion, but the red devils were bent on getting him. They reals up and down the creek, yell ing like deniouc, for some time, until another made a similar attempt to find their intended piey, and, luckily far Osgood, came again with in a tew feet, dividing the tules as before, when Osgood sent him to his long home, after which they Were mare cautious, and gave him a better chance to crawl down the creek. For tour miles the Indians were all the time riding up and down the stream, on both sides. They followed iu this way to within a mile of the house, and at niglit made several attempts to get to Ihe house, lint were repulsed. On the 8th inst., at noon, a freight train of United States wagon, with an escort of soldiers, un der Wa gnnmastcr William DeMosis, came here and camped, and we went with him and tot the body. It was stripped but not niutil- ; luted, as is usually tbc case. We buried him | m ar the house. Dixon was lately from Culiior- 1 nia, and had been engagsd here as a work hand, and, so far as we c in learn, he lias borne a good reputation whenever lie has lived.— Many friends will mourn his loss. !Vcwluiry|toiT Item*.

Such thoroughness will be appreciated by the travelling public and predict success for them.

The Nrcuuil Parish, Agreeably to notice the members of the Second Parish Church and Society assembled at the Chapel of the State Street Church, Mon day evening, Dee. 31st. Notwithstanding the storm there was a goodly gathering of the members, both male and female. The meeting was called to order by Dr. Per ry, and Joshua F. Weeks, Esq, was appointed chairman. Prayer was offered by Mr. New man, The letter of Rev. Dr. Carruthers, re signing his pastoral charge, was read by the chairman, Dr. Perry then offered the following preamble and resolutions: Whereas, The Rev. Dr. Carruthers has statedly ministered to us the Word of Life for nearly twenty one years, and has laitlilully, earnestly and intelligi bly set before u-, in their purity, the great cardinal doctrines and precepts of the everlasting Gospel, and has at all times been the faithful aud sympathizing servant of our Divine Master, ever faithhilly pointing the enquirer to the Wav of Life: while ever at the bedside of the sick and dying, his words have been light to the soul: And whereas, In ail the relations of Pastor we deeply and sincerely llcel aud acknowledge that his duties have been faithfully aud tearlessly performed: therefore Resolved, That we cannot consent that his relations to us as Pastor should cease at this time, when we so much need his counsels and aid. Resolved, That we hereby request him to reconsider his resignation, and to withdraw the same ; while we ever pray that God will watch over and direct his 8tej>s, and continue him yet many years a succe.ssiul minister of His Word. Brief remarks were made by Mr. Chas. Farley, Deacon Larrabee, Mr. Newman, J. F. Weeks, Mr. Brock, Mr. S. Lincoln, Mr. Gwyun, Mr. C. H. Farley, Mr. Choate, and Mr. Soule, all to one point, viz: that the preamble and resolutions expressed thoir views completely. The preamble aud resolutions were unani mously adopted by a rising vote. Messrs. C. H. Farley and Daniel Reed were appointed a committee to wait upon Dr. Car rutbers and proseut him with the resolutions and request him to visit the meeting. In a short time the committee returned, ac companied by Dr. Carruthers, who thanked the meeting for th^kindness and considera tion manifested towards him. In relation to the resolutions the Doctor sub stantially said: “ As you have left me to take my own time lor reconsidering my resignation, and stating the conclusion at which I arrive, I can only say, that, as in all personal and offi cial questions of duty, I shall lay this before God, and notify you when I am ready to give my decision.” Ur. (.arruiiiers then gave an interesting ac count ol his mission work in behalf of the 2d | Parish, relating several incidents that had nc i curred while lie was engaged in behalf of rais ; ing funds for the erection of the Payson Me ! inorial Church. H e said that from all that had | come before him, and from what he had heard, | there was no doubt the Second Parish would | he sustained. A vote was taken that it was expedient some ! place should be secured for meetings of the Society and the Sabbath School. The meeting then adjourned. At the dose of the meeting two of the young ladies of the Parish presented Dr. Carruthers with an envelope containing $118 which they had collected in a very brief time. The meeting throughout was a pleasant and united one. Portland Aiimy and Navy Union.—At a general meeting of the Union, held on Satur day night, Messrs. E. B. Houghton, Dr. G. F. French, A. \V. Bradbury, F. M. Smith and G. Thornes were appointed a committee to make the necessary arrangements lor the dedication of the new hall leased by the Association, in the First Natioual Bunk building. It is ex pected that it will he ready for occupancy about the 1st of February. A badge of membership v. as also adopted, dtsciihcd as follorvs: A square of silver, a six teenth of an inch thick and seven-eighths of an inch on each side, with the letters, “P. A. & N. U.,” engraved on the obverse, with the name of the wearer, his company, regiment and army corps on the reverse; to be suspended from a pin, with a globe head, bj a silk cord and tas sel, blue for infantry, red tor artillery, yellow for cavalry, green for rides, dark blue for staff officers, gold bullion for general officers, and a silver cable for sailors and marines. Splendid Mechanism.—We saw yesterday at the manufactory of Mr. C. P. Kimball, two single and two double sliighs, which, in our opinion, are among the finest specimens of me chanical skill of the times. They are new and beautiful in design, of exquisite taste, elegant in finish, and are indeed a splendid luxury which cannot fail to still further enhance the reputation of the builder—a reputation uot ex celled, if equalled, in the Union. These sleighs may be seen at Kimball’s re pository to-day. This evening they .will be sent to Boston to Messrs. Kimball Brothers & Co., and will be exhibited at their repository in that city for a few days. We say to all our friends in this city and Boston, do not fail to see these truly splendid sleighs. They do honor to the builder and to Portland mechanics. New i'iiiM.—By reference to our advertising columns it will be noticed that Mr. Jerome Pickett and Mr William Gray have formed a copartnership for the purpose of transacting the paint and varnish business in all it branches, and have taken the store No. 187 Fore street, for that purpose. Both of them are men of experience in the business. Everybody knows Jerome, who for two decades past has been in the stoic of Charles Fobes. Mr. Gray has been foreman in the paint shop of the Grand Trunk Company for a long time, and some specimens of his skill may be seen on the steamers Lady Lang and Regulator. We wish the new firm much success. In the early settlement of our country the greatest anxiety was, how our people could ge t enough of good wholesome food. Now the manner of living has changed, so that many people really suffer, and enough of every kind around them. Why is this? It is because their food distresses them. Buy one bottle of Main’s Elderberry Wine and you will get relief. Then buy a case. dec4tt Now that the ladies have really decided that it will uot do to clean the snow from the side walks any longer with their beat clothes, they will find the “skirt-lifter,” advertised in anoth er column, the most elegant and approved way of arranging any dress they may wish, into a walking dress lor the street, and instantly on entering the house it may be let down without any inconvenience. We would call the attention of our readers to the New Year’s Festival, advertised to be held at the West Congregational Church this evening. It will be one of the last opportuni ties in the holidays for social eujuyiuui t and judging from the programme, those who avail themselves of it, will be well entertained, and make a good beginning for a “Happy New A^ear.” Coroner’s Verdict—The verdict of the ’ Coroner’s jury in the case of Mrs. David Small, the particulars of whose death, by freezing, were stated in the Press of yesterday, was, that she came to her death from excessive use of i intoxicating liquors and from exposure to the cold weather on Friday night. Mountfobt Street M. E. Church.—There will he a New Year’s Festival at this Church this evening, to consist of a New Year’s Tree, | speaking and singing by the children and re- | lreshments. Come one, come all, and a good time will be yours. M. L. A. Lecture.—There Will be no lecture i this week before the Mercantile Library Asso- ' ciation. The third lecture will he delivered at Mechanics’ Hall Wednesday evening, January 9th, by Rev. H. M. Galiaher, of New York. Resignation —Rev. Dr. Graham, Pastor of j the Casco street (Free Baptist) Church, has tendered his resignation. We UDderstand that 1 he contemplates taking up his residence at the i West. --- Clove Anodyne, an almost infallible spe cific for toothache, and for agne and neuralgic pain induced by diseased teeth; prepared only j by J.

New Year’s Day.—Tbe Custom House will not be open to-day. The Post Office will be open the usual holiday hours.

A Kiiilroatl [From the Waterville Mail.] Some excitement was produced in our village one day last week, by a report that Mr. John Davis was “tearing up the track at the Lower Depot.” Mr. Davis is a respectable young me chanic. known from childhood in our village, against whose good character nobody ever whis pered ; and it was only alter deliberate enquiry into the ease, that there was method in what liad seemed like madness in the young man.— It was found that instead of injuring the track, lie was only removing the platform, and with careful reference to the boundaries of land lie | owned on each side of the road. Remonstrance and persuasion, with a slight sprinkling ot threats produced no effect, and in the course I of the forenoon Mr. Davis seemed to have tin- | ished his job according to his plan. Orders ! came from Augusta for his arrest, hut nobody I here thought it duty to meddle with him; and j on the following day lie was quietly taken to j that place on civil process, where he gave bonds for his future appearance for trial, and return ed home. He had acted under advice of legal counsel. Further examination of circumstances, add ed to what was before generally known, has j awakened marked sympathy for Mr. Davis and his family, under the wrongs they claim to have suffered from the Somerset & Kennebec Rail road. On whichever side rests the legal ag gression, it is well known that great suffering lias resulted to # family now consisting of a widow and her four children, of whom the ac tor in the above case is one. At the time the road was laid out, Mr. James Davis, the hus band and father, owned a neat little bouse on | the banks of the river, consisting of a cottage, i carpenter’s shop and barn. It w as the saving i of years of labor, and constituted liis all. It , was necessary that this road should have a pass 1 through this property, and it was so taken as to cut out the shi p and baru, leaving the nak ed house on one side and a worthless strip ot land on the other, Mr, Davis, in the face of his , known helplessness, protested against this : tearing process, and offered to sell the proper ' ty at a price which the road declined. The ex treme excitement produced by this case upon Mr. Davis, added to previous infirmity, led to occasional periods of mental aberration, at which times liis rage against the authors of his real or fancied wrongs mastered all prudence; and luring one of them he was charged with 1 some attempt to destroy the property of the road. He was taken to Augusta, and while there removal of bis shop and barn was effect ed by the officials ol the road. Mr. Davis claimed that they also took his tools, stock and fixtures, in violation of his legal rights, and for which he had no just compensation. After years of vexation, his mental infirmities in creasing, Mr. Davis was found one morning upon the ice under the railroad bridge, dead, having, as was supposed, fallen through its timbers and broken his neck. It would be strange indeed if, with the little inheritance lie left his widow and children, they did not inherit both his claim against and his quarrel with the railroad company! and it is in pursuance of this claim that Mr. John Davis has taken the aggressive steps mention ed above. We know nothing of the precise legal points involved iu this case, but we assure those di rectly responsible, that this community must earnestly sympathize with the suffering fami ly. They believe that the agents of the road should long ago have adjusted the matter in dispute, before such terrible wreck was made of the hopes of an otherwise happy house.— This prosperous road is now able to be even more than just, and we cannot doubt that the honorable men concerned in its management will avail themselves of the present opportuni ty, even at some sacrifice, to carry peace and comfort where none has been known for many long years. firaiid Msm Ttiniii'niiKt Mce.Uug at lli-idgiou. In response to a call signed by numerous cit izens of Bridgton, Naples and Sebago, a goodly number of true and tried friends of temperance from the surrounding community gathered to gether at Bridgton Centre, on Wednesday, the 26th inst., for the purpose of organizing a Tem perance Association for this part of Cumber laud County, and to awaken a deeper interest, and to pledge auew their united efforts tor the promotion of this good cause. The Association is to be known by the name of tlie “West Cumberland Temperance Asso ciation:” The following is a list of its officers, as ebosen at its organization: President—Hon. Samuel F. Perley. Vice Presidents—Lulus Gibbs, Esq.. Col J P. Perley, Col. James Webb, Nathan Church Lyman Hall, T. W.Larrabeo, Kimball J. Dyke, Almon Young, Lutlier Fitch. Secretary—E. A. Gibbs*. Executive Committee—Dr. J. U. Kimball, D. H. Cole, Esq., O. D. Dyke, Esq. Enthusiastic and cheering speeches were made during the afternoon and evening by J. O. Win ship, Esq., of Gorham, Hon. Luke Brown, Rev. F. E. Fellows, Col. James Webb, E. R. Staples, Esq., and Rufus Gibbs, Esq., of Bridgton, Hon. S. F. Perley, of Naples, and T. W. Larrabee, of Sebago. The full attendance, the deep interest manifested in the meeting, and other tokens of productive good, amply paid us for all our efforts ill the undertaking, and gave us cheer ing assurance of future success. This Associa tion is to hold its meetings monthly in differ ent localities in this part of the county, which meetings will be duly called and notified by the Executive Committee. It is hoped that ail who feel interested in the good of humanity, and the well-being of society around us, will lend their influence in this movement, will see that these meetings are attended and made in teresting. And may the ball continue to roll until temperance shall rule aud reign in every village and household, and intemperance be only among the sad recollections of the past. Bridgton, Dec. 29,1866. S. Sudden and Singular Death.—One day last week Mrs. Tompkins, of Boston, daughter of Capt. Totman oi this city, pilot of Revenue Cutter Mahoning, hail laughing gas adminis tered to her in Boston, for the purpose of hav ing a tooth extracted. She inhaled three bags lull of the gas and it seemed to have no effect upon her only to render her more rigid and resolute. Ou the|eveuing of the same day, af ter engaging in conversation with the family, she retired to her room locking the door after she had entered. There was a small cylinder stove in the room which contained anthracite coal which was burning. She partially remov ed the cover of the stove aud retired to bed. In the course of the night a noise was heard proceeding from her room, but as she was fre quently troubled with nightmare, it was sup posed to proceed from that, and no attention was paid to it, Not makiug her appearance the next morning, and the door of her room being locked, access was had to the window and she was discovered lying upon the be^ap parently lifeless. The door was burst open and it was found that Mrs. Tompkins w as dead.— Whether her death was occasioned by the laughing gas she had inhaled the day previous, or whether from the gas irom the cylinder stove in her room, or from botli combined, are questions which divide the minds other friends. Her body was brought to this city for inter ment.

The brethren with their j ladies, after the services closed, adjourned to the Gorham House, where a bountiful supper was provided by the landlord, Brother S. B.

No injurious result can occur, let them be used in whatever quantity. Not a particle of calomel enters their composition, They may be used without further preparation, and at any time. Children will eagerly devour all you give them, and ask for more. They never fail in ex pelling Worms from their dwelling place, aud they will alwavs strengthen the weak and emaciated, even when he is not aftticted with worms. Various remedies have from time to time, been re commended, such as calomel, oil of wormseed, turp entine, <tc., producing dangerous, and sometimes iatal consequences. After much research, study and ex periments, embracing several years, the proprietors of Fellow’s Worm Lozenges, liave succeeded in pro ducing this remedy, free from all objections, and posi tively sate, pleasant and effectual. They do not kill the worms, but act by making their dwelling place disagreeable to them. In order to assure consumers of the genuineness of these lozenges, the analysis ot Dr. A. A. iiAYES, State Assayer, is annexed: “I have analyzed the Worm Lozenges, prepared by Messrs. FELLOES & CO., and find that they are free from mercury, and other metallic or mineral mat ter.
