Washington. [Correspondence of the Press.) Washington, D. C., Dec. 31,1866. A SEASONABLE DEPARTUBE. Tha Old Year, in this latitude, at least, seems determined to go out with flying colors, if the snow can come undor that designation. Washington woke up this morniug to find a regular old-fashioned snow storm in progress. In quantity and quality it would have done no discredit to even your State. It is a seasona ble storm, quite in season, and due advantage will bo taken of it—at least to the full extent of Washington's limited capacities in that direc tion. How limited that is may bo estimated by the fact that during a two hours’ tramp I have seen less than a half dozen cutters; yet it is admirable sleighing. The roads were hard and level before the storm came. The snow tails, and lias fallen all night, quietly, evenly and in heavy Hakes. The sky is gray anh dim, the air has the real frosty bite in it, and on the roots and wherever it has been undisturbed, the leathery covering is at least from four to six inches deep If it would only last three or four days wc should probably hold high carnival. But it won’t. The weather is a provoking thing here abouts. By to-morrow the streets will be slushy and sloppy, and the New Year callers will have a disagreeable time. New Year’s day is an occasion of pleasure here. Ceremonial visits are made by all offi cials at the White House. Every officer of tho army and navy, and heads of departments are required to call at tho White House. The scene there is very animated and brilliants The diplomatic corjis appear in ail their splen did costumes, while all our naval and military officers are in full dress, chapeaus, epaulets, sashes &c. The Marine Band, and those of the 12tli Infantry and 5th Cavalry, will dis course sweet music. Outside ot those com pelled to attend, aDd the old pro-slavery cle ment of the District, the attendance to-mor row at the Presidential Leveo will be rather slim. There are hut tew mcmuers ot congress in town, aud there are very few who will take the trouble to come on to pay their respects to “King Andrew.” Those who have remained here are generally at work on committee re reports. These reports will be pretty generally of a character inimical to “His Aeeidency’s" character. In this respect the levee will he the merest of shams, utterly wanting in that cor diality and honest sympathy of feeling which made the New Year’s as well as all other re ceptions of Abraham Lincoln, so full of char acteristic life and enjoyment. There will he to-morrow hut the barest of forms, the dryest of civilities, except in the case of those to whom Andy is a Saviour. THE StTPBEME COtJET. The greetings between the President and the five Justices who constitute the majority of the Supreme Court in favor of reaction, will doubtless he quite hearty. Andrew John son has good reason, or he thinks he has, to be grateful to them for the assistance rendered and expected. The “test oath” case will be decided on Thurs day, when the court reassembles. The opinion of the majority will be, as announced, adverse to the constitutionality of this important pro tective statute. Mr. Justice Grier is expected to give the decision. With l*im will bo asso ciated Messrs. Nelson, Clifford, Davis and Fields. The others, the Chief J ustice, Wayne, Swayneaml Miller, sustain the right of Con gress to impose the oath. The Court is divided exactly on these questions as it is divided on politics. I 1 appen to know that such is the case, by parties who heard their opinions ex pressed. One noticeable fact is that Dr. Jus tioe Wayne, the only Southern Judge now on the Supreme bench, is among the mos radical men of the Court. He was a nominee of An drew Jackson during his second administration, near the close. Perhaps he has something of “Old Hickory's” patriotic touehness. Judge Chase and Messrs. Swayne and Miller are all nomiuees of Mr. Linccln Tliere are other cases pending which will be tests in the game direction as the Milligan de cision, and the me expected in the case of the rebel Garland. Two cases are reported made up, one from Maryland to test the constitution ality of the Civil Rights statute, and the other from Alabama to decide the status of that State with regard to its position in the Union. Judge Chase is also expected during the present week to render his decision on the pending application for a writ of habeas corpus for Dr. Mudd and the other assassins now at Dry Tortugas. The application is based on the presumed illegality of the Court that tried them. It is expected that the writ will be granted. Judge Bingham’s bill legalizing ail acts done under orders and proclamation of the Prasi dent, and legalizing those also, since the begiu ing of 18(55, will now require to bo pushed through, as otherwise we shall have innumer able suits entered by every assassin and steam boat burner or guerrilla who may happen to have been tried in localities where it will please the Executive to declare that the civil courts arc in peaceful exocution of their functions. Little doubt exists hero that the opinions of the court on these Mulligan and test oath cases have been known to the Executive for over a year, and that this has given to him much of bis persistence and to the supporters of “My Policy” much of their courage. It is more than probable that there will be a vigorous move in Congress to secure the reorganization of the Court. There are at least two Judges iu feeble health—Messrs. Wayne and Grier.— The former must be nearly seventy, while the latter must be about sixty-five. The United ages of the Justices amount to more than five hundred years—certainly in this age of young men a remarkable thing. One Judge was ap pointed by Jackson, two by Polk, one by Bu chanan, and five by Lincoln. Mistakes were made iu two nominations at least. A CURIOUS QUESTION. The territory of New Mexico is without the presence of either Governor or Secretary. The former, General Robert B. Mitchell, formerly of Kansas, is on leave of absence and at pres ent sojourning here. On the 18th of October he received thirty days leave He is still here, having had his leave extended, so that he has been absent for nearly three months. The probability is that he will stay till spring weather makes it comfortable travelling. The Secretary is a General Estc of Ohio, at present a lawyer in this city. Este received his commission twelve months since. But ho has not been to the Territory and proBably has no intention of so doing." He was an active promoter oi the Cleveland convention. In the meanwhile, and here comes the ques tion Hon. W. F. Amev, who has been Secre tary for several years, remains at his post till superseded. Ho is recognized here as the act ing Secretary, and as no one relieves him and his commission does not expire till the I7th of February, he must be so legally. When the Governor left, Mr. Amey of course assumed his duties. The Legislature assem bled. The Gubernatorial locum teneru sent in a massage, which the lower house refused to receive on I he ground that Mr. Amey had no legal right to act in such capacity. The case has been submitted to the Attorney General.— It is however a forcible illustration of the loose manner in which our territorial officials perform their duties. ITEMS—GENERAL AND PERSONAL. A strong effort will be made by the Penn sylvania Republicans in the House to advance the election of Mr. Stevens to the United States Senate. All of the radical Representatives from that State, as well as from others, are very anxious to see the “Great Commoner” in the Senate Chamber, A waggish friend re marks that it is because they desire to get rid of him; but that is scandalous. On the other hand it is rather prompted by a desire to give Mr. Stevens an opportunity of spurring on that ,ivw body—the Senate, by an upplteation of his caustic tongue and wit. Everybody has heard of the very valuable historical library accumulated by Peter Force, Esq., of this city, Editor of the American Archives. It is by all odds the most valuable collection bearing on American history, which is or can he collected. Until quite* recently the old scholar has absolutely refused to do any thing towards taking measures to preserve the collection as a whole. It is understood to he heavily mortgaged, the old gentleman having devoted Ids entire life to this pursuit, and to save it from dispersion, some arrangement for its sale had to he effected. The idea of part ing from it in his life seems hard, but it is now understood arrangements are being perfected, by whieh the United States will become its possessor at reasonable rates. No catalogue of the collection has ever been taken, until re cently, when Mr. Spofford, of the Congression al Library, has accomplished the task. I learn that in rare Mss. and valuable documents of the colonial and revolutionary periods, that the collection is of much greate r value than has even ever been supposed. The collection Cannot be allowed to go anywhero else than in the Nation s Hands, Spectator. —Col.

Lawrence was brought be fore the Commissioner, charged with an assault upon Charles Parks, late cook and steward on board brig Rio Grande, of which vessel respondent was master. 1 Defendant was ordered to procure sureties in $ 1,600 for his appearance at the February term of tho U. S. i District Court. Daniel O’Leary was charged with carrying on the : retail liquor business without a license. Ho pleaded ■ nolo contendere, and was discharged on payment of license and costs. COURT OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS. The Board of County Commissioners for 15467, or ganized yesterday. Mr. Humphrey, of Yarmouth, former Chairman of tho Board, retires, and is succeed ed by Miltirnoi'o Watts, Esq., of New Gloucester, who was duly qualified by taking the necessary oaths. Hon. Daniel Chaplin, of Harrison, was elected Chair man. D. W. Fes enden, Esq., Clerk of the Courts, officiates as Clerk. A large number ot bills were audited, and estimates made for the expenses of the ensuing year. It was ordered that about two hundred feet of tho Portland bridge to Cape Elizabeth should be rebuilt as soon as the :-eaaon will allow. New Ilolel Accommodations, In the estimation ot large numbers of our best citizens, the time has come when some measures should be adopted by which our city may be provided with a first class Hotel, and our business men, property holders and all others who have the good name and prosperity of this city at heart, should move in this matter with out further delay. It has long been well known abroad, that Portland has not (what may be called) first class Hotel accommodations, and consequently large numbers of business men, health and pleasure seekers, and others, who would spend weeks in this city and vicinity every summer, will not come here with their wives, daughters or other friends for the rea son, (as they say) that there is not a decent or Modem hotel in the place. Thus, much is lost, in reputation, in business, and every way; and thus every grocer, provision dealer, shoe dealer, clothing dealer, druggist, dry goods dealer, hackman and stable keeper, are interested in the matter, as sufferers. In consequence of the loss . of so many of our old hotels by the late great fire, we are, at the present time, short of accommodations un der ordinary circumstances, without anything for an increase of pleasure or business. Now, what shall be done ? That such a house would pay, (if not on too expensive scale, like Wood's house) there can be no doubt, and pro vided it be on a suitable location and properly kept. On looking over the city fora site, there is no one which presents, on the whole, so many advantages as that known as the Madam Wood lot, on Middle, Pearl and Newbury streets, it being bounded on three streets, is near the cen ter of business or large business houses, on Mid dle, Exchange and Commercial streets, the Custom House. Post Office, Hanks, Insurance Offices and the new Park, all combining to make a most eligible location for a first class house; would do much to enhance the value of every piece of property In that lo cality; every warehouse would be rendered much more desirable, and consequently com mand better rents. I understand that it is about settled that the proprietors of the old Elm House lot do not propose building thereon at present, and if they were to do so, it is by no means the best site for a genteel hotel, its surroundings being unfavor able for such a purpose. Stib VI' then business men and property holders of Portland, and begin the work in good earnest; do not dream over this subject any longer, as no time should be lost if you wish to maintain the lair fame and business interests of our stricken, but soon to bo renovated city. Au Old Resident. Presentations.—On New Year’s evening tiio members of Machigonne Steam Fire Engine Company, No. 1, presented their late Captain, Mr. Samuel R. Leavitt, with a beautiful gold mounted rosewood cane, bearing the following inscription: “ Capt. Samuel R. Leavitt, from the members i of Machigonne Steam Fire Engine Company, ; No. 1. January 1,18i>7. On the head of the cane, on a gold plate, was a fac simile of the engine, beautifully engrav graved. The work of engraving and mounting : the cane was done by Mr. Lowell, son of Ab ner Lowell, Esq, The presentation was made at the engine house, by Capt. Rand, in a neat speech, which was handsomely responded to bv Mr. Leavitt. Other speeches were made by various members of the company, after which they sat down to an oyster supper, and enjoyed a fine time. We omitted to notice, last week, that the employees in the plumbing establishment of | Mr. Wm. A. Pearce surprised him on Christ- I mas with an elegant testimonial of their es teem in the form of an elegant silver pitcher and salver. The articles were from the estab lishment of Messrs. Lowell & Senter, and were very beautiful. They bear an appropri ate inscription, with Masonic emblems. Pobtlaxd Institute- The meeting last evening of gentlemen interested in this meas- I ure resulted in the adoption of a bill to incor porate the institution, with liberal provisions, to be submilted to the Legislature. It was vot ed to press the subject to an early action, that the Institute may bo put into operation as soon as practicable. It is not doubted that when the charter is obtained and corporation organ ized, there will be a prompt and honorable re sponse in m^ferial aid to lay broad and deep the foundation of an institution earnestly de manded by all classes in our city. Hauled up.—Yesterday afternoon as the Maine Central and Grand Trunk passenger trains were crossing Commercial street to the Boston depot, they w'ere unexpectly hauled up in lront of our office in consequence of a team, loaded with a huge stick of timber, being stuck on the track. Somo of the passengers got out of the cars and footed it to the Boston depot. After a delay of about ten minutes a sufficient force of oxen was attached to the stuck team I and the track was cleared. -...... Seizures.—The Deputy Marshal travelled ' quite a distance on Tuesday for the purpose of “obtaining some drinks,” but got “skunked” iu three places they visited. They made up for it yesterday by seizing small quantities of liquor , and ale in the shops of James McGlinchy, on Fore street, Joseph Cowan, on Federal street, John Sidney, on Fore street, and J. G. Perry, j on Federal street. There are are two or three other places that are undei suspicion. In the early settlement of our country the greatest anxiety was, how our people could get enough of good wholesome food. Now the manner of living has changed, bo that many people really suffer, ami enough of every kind around them. Why is this? It is because their j food distresses them. Buy one bottle of Main’s I Elderberry Wine and you will get relief. Then j buy a case. dec4tf . Sale of Vessels.—Messrs. E. M. Patten & j Co. sold at auction at noon yesterday, one-six teenth of bark Norton Stover, 402 tons, two years old, for $1,175, to C. P. Knapp; one-eighth ol brig Prairie Bose, 298 tons, tw-o years old, for $2,050, to G. W. Cobb; and one-sixteenth of brig Mary C. Marriner, five years old, 252 tons, to I. G. Twcmbly, for $775. Portland Bailroad.—The number of pas sengers conveyed over the horse railroad in the month of December was 75,818, against 00,412 in^ December, 1865, being an increase of 9,406. The whole number of passengers conveyed over the road, during the year, was 1,008,494 Year 1865, 915,532 Increase, 92,902 New Bace Course—It wouid seem from the racing of vehicles for tho past few days on Congress street, that that avenue has been adopted as a race course. It is truly danger ous for females or children to attempt crossing that street at some periods in the day. Sale of Bonds.—Four thousand dollars of the third mortgage bonds of the Androscoggin Bailroad, with all the coupons attached but one, were sold at auction on Monday at 41.

A., author of “David Elginbrod,” etc. lzuio. New York: Harper & Brothers. This is a more than usually pleasing story, written in a quiet, thoughtful strain which is a wonderful relief after a great deal of the blood and thunder fiction of the present day. There is enough of incident to keep the interest al ways alive, hut the charm of the hook is in its sweet and natural portraits of character and its lifelike description of country scenes. It*j was originally published in the Sunday Maya- ' zine, a periodical not so widely rood on this side of the water as it should be, and is now re printed by the Harpers in handsome form. Davis Brothers have it. Northern Lights.—The first number of this long promised and much talked of maga zine appears at last. It has thirty-six broad double columned pages, and the table of con tents of the opening number includes ten ti tles, and five illustrations, beside the ornament al title page. Three of the pieces are poem9, the first and most remarkable by Mrs. Julia Ward Howe, entitled “The Two It’s.”—Eachel and Bistori. Then follow the first four chap ters of a very promising serial entitled “Our Neighbors’ Wives” (illustrated by H. L. Steph ens,) and a funny story by Petroleum V.Nasby. Fitz Hugh Ludlow contributes the sketch called “Little Briggs and I;” there is a lively paper entitled “Micawber in America,” and another I on “The Illuminati;” a poem on “The Burning j Steamship,” and a chapter of merry dialogue ' after the manner of the “Noctes Ambrosiance,” which purports to set forth the sayings and do ings of “Our Contributors’ Club.” Northern Lights is published “for the proprietors” by the American News Company in New York, and Messrs. Lee & Shepard are the New England agents. For sale in this city by Fessenden Brothers under Lancaster Hall. The Effects of the Late Gale on the waters in New York harbor are thus described by Sir. G. Blunt, in a communication in the New York Evening Post,' The great fury ot the recent storm and its Eower over the waters of our harbor can be est shown by a statement of what happened to the British steamer Australasian. This vessel arrived off Sandy Hook on the 27th, but was detained by the Bnow storm until die 28th, at the Southwest Spit. On that day she got under way at 9 A.S1., and was proceeding to tho city, and took the bottom in mid channel, the steamer drawing twenty-one feet nine in ches, where there should have been the depth at mean low water of twenty-three feet, and the tide two hours' flood should have given twenty-four and one half feet, thu9 showing that the force of the wind had driven the wa ter out of tho lower bay, and impeded its rising two feet nine inches. The wind was about W. N.W.—a direction that would almost have a clean sweep of the bay—still Its power must have been terrific to cause such a diminution of the depth ot the water against a rising tide,and over such an extent of surface. Had tho eutrance ot Sandy Hook Bay been narrow, one might have ex pected such a phenomenon, but its width bei ag six nautical miles it makes one marvel at such great effect. Public Libraries.—While we are discuss ing the question of a public library it is well to know what other cities have done in this direc tion. In Fall River, Mass., a place with only about half the population of Portland, upward of 829,000 have been subscribed for a building for a public library, and a citizen has offered to furnish it with books. No more contributions therefore will be required to establish the insti tution. In Providence, a city of about CO,000 inhabitants, the Athenaeum now has a library numbering 29,035 volumes. In addition to the property in its building and grounds, it also has a permanent fund of about 325,000, of which the sum of 810,000 was received during the past year from a bequest made by the late Captain Thomas Poynton Ives.—Transcript. Boating Challenge Accepted. — Hamill has accepted the challenge of Walter Brown of this city, on the following terms, the race to come off in May: “I will row him a three mile race and a five mile race, to be rowed on days following each other—the three mile race for five hundred dol hira a side, the five mile race for one thousand dollars a side: the race9 to come off at Pitts bur#, and I will allow him three hundred dol lars for expenses. I think friend Brown ou#ht to accept this, as he never had to travel far for a raoe, while, on the contrary, I have had to do ft great deal in that way/1 ’ Bold Robbeby in Newbubyport. — On Tuesdav morning aboot one o’clock, a daughter of Mr. ,'r. A. Danforth, on Winter street, awoke her father in an adjoining room, telling him that somebody was in her bedroom—she could hear him breathe. Mr. Danforth got up, and searching for his clothes, found his pants gone from the side of his bed, and at the same time his daughter called that a man had run down stairs. As soon as possible Mr. Danforth fol lowed, taking his gun and calling his broiher. On the new snow they tracked him to the house of Mr. Newell Marden, on Summer Street, where they discovered M.r. Danfortb’s pants in a privy. Thence they tracked him to the Mer rimae House, on State Street. Mr. Danforth found that he had lost from $125 to $150, part of it in two little bundles of scrip, tied up with peculiar twine and twiBted in a peculiar man ner. He gave notice to the City Marshal of the facts; and Mr. Constable Batclicldcr was put on the watch at the hotel, and in the morning the City Marshal was on the look out nt the Eastern Railroad Station.— Soon Mr. Batchelder rode up in a coach with a good looking man about forty years old, named Stone, who was arrestedby the Mar shal. Ho was well known here and married his wife in this city. The officers at once search ed him and found on him $133. He protested his innocence of any crime and made so fair a statement that they let lnm go. Afterwards on going to his room in the Merriraac House the pices of twine with which Mr. Danforth tied his scrip were found on the floor, and as he had missed the eight o’clock train by their in terference, they were enabled to secure him be fore the 10 o’clock'train started, in which ho wished to go to Boston. He is a bold operator: and after his first arrest he called at Messrs. Danforth’s store, talked over the matter, regret ted that suspicion should have lallen on him, and hoped they would catch the roguo, and shook hands at parting with the usual saluta tion of a happy “new year” for them. Prom wantot sufficient evidence he was released.— Newburyport Herald. The Dead or the Yeah— The death-roll of the year includes many names distinguished in politics, in the church, in authorship, and in art. We note a few of them: The ranks of the authors have been thinned. Fredrika Bremer died at Stockholm early in the year; Jared Sparks at Cambridge in Alarch; Joseph Mery in France in June; and Count Gurowski at Washington in Alay. Among the dead statesmen and political lead ers are Daniel S. Dickinson, Lewis Cass, John Van Buren, Elijah F. Purdy, Moses F. Odell, James Humphrey, Senators Foot and Wright, and Commodore Stockton. Prince Estberhazy died at Katisbon in Alay, and Marquis d’Azeg lio in Italy in January. In October, M. Thou venal closed his long aud active career in France. Gordon Cummins, the famous lion-hunter, was accidentally killed in Scotland in Alarch. Professor Henry D. Kogers, a distinguished sa vant, also died in Scotland in Alay. John Boss, chief ol the Cherokee Nation, died at Wash ington in August. The sculptor Gibson died in Italy in January, seventy-five years old; and Sir Charles East lake, President of the British Boyal Academy, died at Pisa just as the new year came in. The most prominent clergymen who have died during the year are Drs. Camming and Pise of the Boman Catholic Church; Dr. Eliphalet Nott, President of Union College; Dr. Hawks,of New York; Dr. Whewell and Bev. John Keble in England; aud “Father Prout,” in Paris—the last-named better known by his pseudonym than by his proper name of Alahoney. Gen. Scott died at West Point on the 29th of Alay. Admiral Pareja, commander of the Spanish fleet in the Pacific, committed suicide. The Mabine Cobps.—The Philadelphia Bul letin says that “the marine corps of the Uni ted States now comprises three thousand men, in a state of the highest efficiency, in all re spects equal to the much vaunted marine ser vice of tne British Government, and forming a most important and reliable arm of national defence, The whole of this force, which, from the nature of its peculiar duties, is scattered all over the world, is under the command of an officer of long service aud high standing in his profession, Colonel Jacob Zeilin. The extent of this command, and the wide ramifications of its complicated duties demaud that it should be placed on a higher grade as regards the rank of its officers. An independent and im portant arm of the service like the present marine corps, should be so orgauized as to be under the command of a Brigadier General, thus placing it upon the same footing with commands of similar dimensions and impor tance in The increase of cost to the Government, and the necessary changes in the organization, would be very trifling, and Con gress would only be paying a well earned com pliment to an admirably managed branch of the public service, and placing it upon a toot ing of dignity to which its members and the extent of its services justly entitle it, by con ferring upon it the additional grade of a Brig adier General.” Consistency a Jewel.—In the Monthly Re ligious Magazine for January, we find a short essay on the punishment of girls in school, from which we take the following pointed par agraph : “ Wc wish Dr. Wyman would give his prin ciples a little wider application. ' Strike not a woman,’ he says, ‘ even with a leather, is the motto oi civilization; and it is in accordance with the spirit of Christianity also.’ Amen!— Now, we ask whether hanyiny women is not worse than striking them with leathers? This Government we live under has hung a womau, while the men of w hom at most she was only the dupe and the accomplice go free. It mat ters not whether the great crime of the ago was plotted at Richmond or not; it was the fruit of its counsels and iniquities; and no worse than the wholesale murders of Andersonville, which we know were plotted aud authorized there.— It is hardly worth while to expend all our sen timent on the punishment of refractory girls at school, while the hideous figure of A woman on the gallows looms black upon our political sky to expiate the crimes of men who are treated with tender sympathy, or restored to rewards and honors. As men, as Americans, we ought to blush with shame.” The Argus is in error in its statement that the Boston Advertiser and Hartford Times “are both somewhat larger than the Press.”— The Advertiser has a running titlo by which our critical neighbor was probably misled.— The Advertiser’s columns and ours are of equal length. The Boston Post, our neighbor con tinues, is considerably larger than the Press.— If the Post is larger than the Advertiser it is larger than the Press. The enlargement was effected to jrut the Press fairly among “the largest New England dailies.” If the Post is a trifle larger, the difference is not so great as that which separates the Press from second class dailies of the size of the Argus.
