The question "is olten a :ked how can this be saved. Mr Blanchard li is invented a boiier that takes poriect control ol all the heat and make, it do dun in the engine. This is very simple in its construction; alter the engine lain motion the smoke pipe isclosed tight, and the waste heat carried through heaters, heating ihe steam to any temperature desired; the remainder carried through the water heater, using up ail the waste i heat but 200 degs.; the heat being reduced so low there can be no danger of setting tires by sparks thrown from engines, which will add much Value to this invention, besides the saving 1-3 the fuel.

L PORTLAND. --- Wednesday Morning, January 2, 1867. Tbe Missouri Disturbances. The recent disturbances in tlie western and northern counties of Missouri have grown naturally out of the war, which in that re gion divided society and gave rise to these ; personal teuds which are among the most dan | gerous and lasting results of civil war. When ; in the early part of the war Gen. Pope took j command in Missouri, lie found bands of out i laws, protected and encouraged by citizens , quietly living at home, who were driving Union men, peaceful, industrious, law-abiding denizens, out of the State. These men usually escaped to the nearest military post and en listed. Their property was “confiscated,” or destroyed, and if they delayed too long their ves paid the forfeit. Gen. Pope, acting un der martial law, obliged ail the citizens to | turn out for the commou defence and held all j responsible for any injuries done by marau ders. This plan, strictly enforced, restored peace and order for the time. At the close of tiie war both Confeder ate and Unior. soldiers returned to their for mer homes. The recollection of personal in juries was still fresh. The aggressors and the aggrieved were once more in the same nelgb ; borhood. The aggressors found themselves j once more supported by the sympathy j of a majority, and renewed then’ per j secutions. In aimed hands and with I comparative impunity they resumed their cheerful pastime of plundering and shooting | their neighbors, the Unionists. Gov. Fletch | er thereupon sent a force of State militia in to the disorderly counties. Arrests were made and culprits are now awaiting trial. The “respectable” Conservatives (the new name for Confederates) affected great aston ishment, and appealed to Gen. Hancock in behalf of the bushwhackers whom they se cretly encourage. United states troops were ; sent to the scene of disturbance, hut on the ; energetic protest of Gov. Fletcher, were with ! drawn, it is said, by the President's order. ! Ibis 13 a succinct account of the afiair. it appeal's that the militia in some instances acted with needless severity. The St. Louis Democrat very properly rebukes tbeir hasty and intemperate zeal. It woutd .be strange i Weed if the militiamen should be very ten i der in their treatment of men who never spar | ed them; but the alternative for the counties I U either to be overrun by armed outlaws, or ! to endure the slight excesses which may be | committed by men under military discipline— ! unless indeed the entire community will I charge itself with the duty of preserving or ! der. To Uie audacious statement that no res straining force is needed, the Lexington (La Fayette county) Register thus replies: The disturbances iu this county have been too frequent uud long-coutinued, and too open and notorious to be smoothed over by anv sys tem ot lying these gentlemen can invent It may he amusement for them to have a Kan<* of outlaws overriding ail law, and terrorizing over the people, Out they must remember that but tew me a feel sate in the power of such men — They may have assurances that they will not be interfered with; we have no such assurances * oil the contrary we, in common withmauv cit izens ot this county, know the intentions ot these men, anil know them to be hostile to wards us, and it there is any sot of men in this county, who claim to he respectable, who de sire to keep us at the mercy of such a gain' we want to know them, so that we may avoid them in the future. Any one who will mani kin that vigorous efforts to put a stop to this lawlessness should not he made, appears to us to be an enemy to the public peace. This coun ty is perfectly quiet, say these gentlemen, and there is no necessity whatever for Governor Fletcher interesting himself in our affairs, it is true that these gentlemen who are crying ‘•all is peace,'’ have taken matters very quietly They doubtless thiuk it peaceable thatdespu^ o cs shuulu ride up to tile market and deuber auly .-boat one of our citizens, tnat they should shoot at their pleasure into the houses of inof tensive negroes amt visit them at li ght in arm ed squads and lob them ot their week’s wages and turcaten them with ueatii if they inform on them. They think it peaceable when an armed band can at noonday rob a bank or a United isiates mail-coach, or knock one of our German citizens down in tile streets at night and pick bis pockets, or ride like savages, and til ing tbeir pistols through crowded streets, en dangering tub lives ol all. They may think it peaceable lor an armed ruffian'to shoot twice at a negro and half-armed citizens. We can not, however, see it iu that light. If such is peace, give us war. This extract sufficiently indicates tlie state of things which lias required the intervention of the State government, in answer to a pe tition lrom the citizens of Jackson county, ad joining La Fayette, pledging themselves to maintain order and asking that no troops should be sent there, (iov. Fletcher, granting their petition, takes occasion to say,_ I hope you will permit me to say to you and through you to those you represent, that hence forth it should he the effort of every "ood citi- I zen to devotj hnuseJt to the building up of the I general prosperity of your country, aud that I you should reg. rd no man as a good citizen who dots not unite with you for the security ot lire aud proverty, and for advancing the gener al good, no matter what side he has taken in the war or in politics since the war. Public opinion can soon remedy all the evils existing nr your county. Get that public opinion prop erly expressed and understood-let it say to all men that overy violation of the law shall be promptly and legally punished; let it frown oown the disturbers of your peace, the men with pistols belted on them, who swagger around your streets and ride over your coun try; let pistols he the known and recognized badge of the bushwhacker or the outlaw; let every mau account for himself. Proceed un der chapLer 77 of the general statutes against every mau found roaming about with his pis tols belted to him and his blanket strapped to his saddle; make every such maushoV that he lias aahouest calling, aud if he have not, hire hill! out as a vagrant. Do not permit a few dozen vagrants to destroy the peace and pros perity of your c( unty. Give every mau the protection of the law, but make every ma n give it his support aud obedience, in return for its protection. It would greatly promote the formation of a correct public opinion, if half a dozen of these scoundrels could be caught and huug. A Letter Trout Victor Hugo ou the Struggle iu Crete. M. Victor Hugo lias written a let'er, of which the following is a tianslation, in refer ence to the revolutionary contest in Candia: A cry reaches me from Athens. In the city of Phidias and Alschylus an appeal is made to me—my name is pronounced. What am, I to deserve such an honor? Nothing but a vanquished man. And who are they who call to me? The vanquished. Yes, he roie Candiotes, the fallen of to-day, you are victors of the future. Persevere. Even if you are prostrated, you will triumph. The protestation of a dying agony is a power It is an appeal to God, who crushes—wtiat ? Kings! Those mighty ones who are now against you, those coalitions of blind force and stubborn prejudice, those armed antique tyrannies, have as their principal attribute a remarkable facility of making shipwreck. The tiara is ou the poop, the turban on the prow, the old monarchifcal ship is leaking. It is at this very hour foundeiiug in Mexico, in Aus tria, in Spain, In Hanover, in Saxony, at Home, and elsewhere. Persevere! You van quished? Impossible! The insurrection sup pressed is not a principle destroyed. There are no more faits accompli», theie is only Right. Fact is never completed. Its perpetual incompleteness is the opening which is left to Right. Right cannot be submerged. The waves of events pass over it. It reappears. Drowned Poland floats on the surface. For t)4 years European policy has torn this corpse, and the world has seen its soul floating above the fail yiccompli. Greeks of Candia, yon have right on your side, and you have also reason. Why a Pasha should exist in Crete is beyond comprehension. That which is true of Italy is also true as regards Greece. V enice cannot be restored to the one without Crete being restored to the other. That which is there a resurrection cannot be here a sepulchre. But in tlie mean time blood Is flowing, and Europe permits it. She gets accustomed to it. l'o-day it is the Sultan’s turn to exteiminate a nationality. Is there a Turkish divine right venerated as the’ Christian divine right? Murder, robbery, violation, are at this moment sweeping over Candia as, six months ago. they dashed over Germany. That which would not be allowed to Scliinderhannes is allowed to policy. To have the sword in hand and quietly to witness those murders, this is called statesmanship. It would seem that religion is interested in what the Turks are quietly doing—the cutting of Canuian throats—and that society would be shaken if, between Scarpanta and Cytherea, little children were not put to tbe sword. There the ravaging of crops and the burning of villages is useful. The motive which explains and tolerates these exterminations is beyond our peuetration. Alas! one of the humi'iations of men whom a long exile has made • stupid ("I am one of them) is that they cannot comprehend the great reasous of the present assassins. Never wind. Tbe Cretan question is henceforth clear. It will be solved, and solved like all the otner questions of this age. In the sensed deliverance. Greece complete—Italy com plete—Athens at Ibe head of one, Rome at < the head ol the other—this is what we— France—owe to our brothers. It is a debt that France will acquit; it is a duty that France will discharge. When? Persevere. Victor 11 coo. Ilauteville House, Dec. 2, 1S«J. The American Cot.ni> at Japim. The New York Tiibune's correspondent at Beirut, Syria, gives the following account of the colony which sailed from Jonesport iu this State for Jaffa, or Joppa, last summer The diplomatic complications arising out of the settlement of this American colony on Turkish soil, will be likely to require the pres ence of a representative of the United States clothed with fuller powers than our cousul at Jerusalem. The suggestion in the closing paragraph of the letter below, that the consul ate at Beirut be male a consulate general, deserves the immediate consideration of the State Departmental Washington. The letter ‘ Is dated Nov. 23, 18C0: The arrival ot a colony of Americans in the Holy I .and is an event, which although of no political weight or bearing intrinsically, is yet awakening attention throughout the Last.— It is certain that the Turkish officials in Syria are beginning to think the "Vaukee Nation is becoming ••universal," quite rapidly enough. During the past few months the American hag was gravely insulted iu Cyprus. Forth with two United States vessels ot war appear ed in Cyprus. The Cretan rebels sent a peti tion to the President of the United States. United States vessels of war were soon at an chor In the Cietan harbors. In August last an American colony of singular religionists landed at Jatl'a, the seaport of Jerusalem in the hark Nellie Capin. They numbered lot! souls on landing and brought their wooden houses with them. Not long alter the United States men of war Ticonderoga and Canan daigua, successively cast anchor in the port ot Jatl'a, as it they had been brought there on purpose to look after American interests. The coincidence iu the three cases was cer tainly remarkable, if a coincidence, and it not, it indicates tiiat our diplomatic and naval officers in the Last are on the alert to see that the American flag is respected. With regard to the Cretan rebellion I have nothin* to write. The Atlantic Telegraph and your Constantinople cone; pendent can give you much later news than you could hope for through a Syrian jjbuuuei. As an episode, however, to this diplomatic history, .et U3 look in upon the new colonists at Julia. Mr. Adams—or President Adams, as he styles hiuiseh—is the prime mover and prompter of this Vaukee emigration from Down t.a.t in Maine to Down Fast in Palestine, lie organ ized the colony from members of a peculiar roiigious sect, called the “Church of the Mes , siah," who hold, among outer points of faith, that they are of the uibe of Fplirahn, and j that, as the curse is now taken oil from Pales- I tine, the set time has come for the Lost Ten ! Tribes to reium to tbeir laud. A shniiiar sect in Lngiand claim that the whole Angio £axon lace are Jews ot the Lost Ten Tribes. I Whether President Adams will allow the i whole Anglo-Saxon race in the Ephraimite fold or not 1 cannot ascertain, hut il is more probable that he eonfiues it to that portion ot the race who belong to this sect. in a recent sermon he stated that the present ui tue ujij jr uit; vuuguai'u oi a mighty lmst who ai« soon coming up to pos sess the IKul. M hat he means by the ‘‘curse being taken off” the land of Palestine It is not easy to decide. There are still thorns and thistles aud weeds growing on every side. .Men still have to get their bread by the sweat of their brow*, uulos. they eat it by the sweat of others’ brows, as lor example tue ishmael itic brethren, whose chivalrous iustiucts otten lead them to make midnight cavalry raids on their neighbors' thrashing-floors, and thus eat bread without either sowing or reaping. The eurse ot sickness and deatu is not yet remov ed, lor nine persons of this same colony have already died within three months ot their landing, and others are now in the hospital oi Jdr. Melzler, at Jaffa, undergoing treatment. It is also said that, dissatisiaction is arising among some of the colonists, who rind there L iully as much “eurse,” and perhaps more ot •‘cursing" in this Holy Land than they ielt be hind iu the land ol the Maine Law. A con siderable part of the men are artisans, work ing men, who came to j aria with the expec tation .it biHiiug the land “flowing with funk aud honey,” and it is quite a shock to their simple faith to rind miik only to le bought at two piastres per ope, and h mey haid to get at any price. Vi hetner from motives ot econo my, or of religious iaith, or because they couid uot get au educated physician to join the Colony, the tact is the same, that they com i milted the great enor ol coming to a strange climate much warmer th in ine.r own, at the beginning ot the rainy season, with iutirm oni men, delicate women and ricSe chbUrun, without proper medical attendants. The consequence uas been a loss alreauy, as l am ctedibiy informed, ol ume out ot 157 (one enild uaving been bo.n the day aiter they .anded). This is an enormous percentage,whei. it is remembered that the most unhealthy season at Jaffa is during the summer months. Lhe Colony is rich in omee beavers, having me President aud two Bishops. They couu denlly be ieve that they are ludilling prophecy iu this vanguard occupation oi tuesaereu son, and that they are abous to reconstruct the dis joint u teirnory or Palestine, and restore its pcistine glory. They say they buvo not come lo eonveit Ine Moslems, or auk, or Greeks, or Marouiles. 1 hey are a close leiigious cor pjrauon, quite uacuucej ncil an to what be comes oi me poor Oeutiies wiio iiapptn to own and occupy almost every acre oi the EpUramiitic inheritance. rortuuately for them tbe Turkish authori ties have thus lar put no obstacles in then way. Through the kind interference of the English aud American Cousuis iu Jerusalem, the Tutkish Pasha satv it to be ior his own personal interest to do these unoifendiug col onists every favor in his power. Accordingly, when they landed ail Jail'a arose to meet J them. All their goods aud chattels, lumber aud furniture were allowed to be lauded tree of duty, aud I anilities were furnished them ibr getting settled in their new homes. They had secured laud beiore their arrival, through the Ainericau Vice-Consul iu Jaffa, tvno bought it in the name of a subject of the bu. tan, as is the custom iu Turkey, foreigners uot being allowed to hold property here iu their own name. Tiie purchaser afterwards signs a paper m the American Consulate, mat he made tue purchase uot tor himsclt hut lor A or B, aud giving up ail eiaim, i igkt or title , to the same, in this way the counties have j secured land near the city of Jatfa, and are j getting settled iu their wooden houses, which, ! I fear, they will lind whony uuiit lor protec tion against the blazing sun of an Eastern Summer. There are rumors already that some of the colonists are netting disgusted, and wish to return home, but ilm .Nellie ttiap in, wlro brought them, has gone, and they are In fora serious attempt to make their experi ment successful. The colony had ample funds at the beginning, but they have invested so largely in land lhal their resources may begiu to tail before the next crops come In. They are said to be provided with improved agri cultural implements, and the colonial enter prise may prove usctul to agricultural science in the East, provided that the colonists take land as they find it, curse or no curse, and de vote their energies to developing the agricul tural capacity of the soil. ilie advent of this colony gives additional l importance to the American consulates in Jerusalem and Beirut. Hitherto the Ameri can Consul at Jerusalem has beeu but a mere tigure-head to tbe Americau travelling par ties who are visiting the Holy City. Now the Consul has oue ot the most responsible and difficult posts in the Turkish Empire. All the political and legal questions which must in evitably rise in connection with this colouy must come before him, and bis post will be no sinecure as heretofore. Another mostimpor 1 tant question connected with tbe Jerusalem Consulate is the Beirut Consulate. Beirut is the political and commercial capital of Syria. The Consuls of the European powers resid ing here ate Consuls General, and the Con suls iu the interior cities are subordinate to them. The advantage of this system is in calculable. Tbe Consuls In the interior are not, when important business arises, obliged to wait lor an answer from Constantinople be fore acting, but consult tbe Consul-General at Beirut at once and proceed to act. Our ex cellent Consul in Jerusalem will bud himself environed with difficulties in connection with this Jati'a colony, owing to the great distance i from Constantinople. In ordinary tune} he 1 must wait a month for au answer from Mr. Morris, our Minister at the Porte, before he can do anything. Tbe remedy is simple. Let (be Consulate at Beuut be made a Con sulate- Geueral, and the Consul-General here can settle the greater part of the civil eases of the Jatlaites without the need of a refer ence to Constantinople. This is one ol the many reasons ■ which make it almost an im perative necessity that tbe State Department i at Washington should take up tbe case of the Beirut Consulate at once. Discovery of Champlain’s Bones. The founder of the French settlement in Canada. AI. Champlain, died at Quebec iuthe I 1030, and his place of burial has long n a mystery. Recently a patient exam ination of ancient record., by two learned ec clesiastics of Quebec, AIM. Laverdiere and j Casgrain. has led to the conclusion that the tomb and chapel built over it must have been In the lower town, just under the precipice on which the upper town is tbuilt. On e\- ' amining the place, it was found the aque duct had been carried directly over the spot. And on inquiry of Air. O’Donne], the engineer of the aqueduct, it .was ascertained, says an exchange, “that au ancient vaulted tomb bad beei found at the place la question containing acoflinol hrinan bones, ami that, he was so much struck with the character of the discovery that he had included a section of the vault with measurements and other in uications concern ine it, in one of his plans. This plan he found and produced. He con ducted AIM. Laverdiere ami Casgrain to the place, and showed them what was still to be seen of the old vault, within which a new tme, lor the purposes of the aqueduct, had been made, nearly oh iterating the inscrip tion on the wail, where, however, some1 of the tetters ot Champlain's name may still be dis tinguished. the bonesha<I been removod immediate ly alter the vault was discovered, and Air. O’ Uounel could i ot tell what had become of them. It appeared, on further inquiry, that they had been given to the Abbe Langviu, the pi lest o a neighboring parish, well kuuwn iu Cuuiuia as the author ol' several anti juari an and historical publications, lie hah them placed in a box and kept them for some time, but afterwards caused them tj be buried, still m the box, in the human Catholic cemetery for uubaptised infants. He directed the spot to be marked, but this it seems was neglected, for when we last heard horn Quebec the t>ox had not yet been lound.thougn an attempt to that end had been made. There can t e no doubt that the bones will soon be recovered, and that the remains of the founder of Cana da will he honored with a mouument worthy ol him. Omaha unit IJeorgc Francis Irani. “A. D.

IjiuiAN tlOaXU.i UBS.- l he rumors of Iu' dian hostilities arc growing aud tuickeulug.— Tiie news of the massacre of eighty-seven men by the savages near Fort Phil. Kearney, in Dakota, is coniirmcd. There seems to be a general conspiracy among the tribes to re sist the progress 01 the two Paciirc Kaliway does through Nebraska and Kansas. The bit ter hostility ol tire Indians to tire construction ol these great avenues of civiiuatiou in the wild regions which they have been accustom ed to consider their own, will doubtless ac count in a considerable degree ior tba outrag es which seem to be the precursors of a gen eral Indian war. In view of the present aspect of u Hairs Geu. buennaa s proposition iu his recent report deserves very serious at tention, He pioposes, with tiie consent of his superiors, to restrict the wandering Sioux uorthof the Platte, west of the Missouri, aud cast of the road from Laramie to Virginia city. In like manner the hostile tribes ol the South should lie prevented from coming north of the Arkansas or west of Fort Fuion. This would leave us the exclusive use ol the great belt In which the two railroads lie, and through which passes most of the travel over land to the Paeiiic Coast and to the mlninc regions. This measure will probably be adopted. If tbe Indians are to be governed by force, It is proper aud on many aceounts desirable, that; the care of them should be transferred, as Gen. Grant recommends, from the Department ol the Interior to the Wat Office.

The Ship Canal Projects. On the 11th of December a convention was held at Chicago to consider measures lor t-ioil itating communication with the East The subject of a ship canal around Niagara Falls was fully discussed, and a report adopted in fa vor of urging the early prosecution of that en terprise. Directly alter the adjournment of the convention, delegates from the cities of Chicago and Oswego paid a visit to Toronto, where a conference was held oil the subject of a sh ip canal to connect Lake Huron directly with Lake Ontario. 'ibis project was first started in 1S33, and a survey made wiiieh demonstrated the feasibili ty of the undertaking, by which n short cut of about one huudred miles could bo made across the Canadian peninsula, obviating tlio necessity of the circuitous route by wav of Lake Erie. The Huron and Ontario Canal Company was organized lor that purpose, and has been iu ex istence several years; but, from lack of capital, there has been no progress made so far in the
