The Schools of 1'vi‘lluud ufici- the Fire. The following account of the reorganisa tion of the schools of Portland, in the midst of the confusion aud disorder of the first few days of the fire, will bring to the notice of many of our own citizens for the first time, the energy and perseverance of the school committee aud teachsts, and the actual diffi culties they had to overcome. We copy from the Maine Normal: There is no reader of the Normal but knows of the destructive fire in the city ol Portland, which occutred July 4, lofitt, and probably most have interested themselves enough in the great disaster to learn that no less than filtoen hundred buildings were laid in ashes, ten thousand persons rendeiwd houseless and homeless, and at least ten mil lions of property consumed. The night that brought all this destruction and misery was one of terrible sublimity, and never to be for gotten by any who were eye witnesses. The wings ot the destroying Angel seemed to b) overshadowing Ibo city. T’ne crash of walls and lofty church spires, the shrieks of terror stricken Women and childieu, the terrible ex plosions from the blowing up of buildings al most led to the belief that Portland was in deed a beleaguered city, carried by storm. .uter su. b a visitation as this, it was natur al that the question on -til lips should be, What shall we do ? and imbued with that same spirit which so early led the Puritan Fathers to provide tor the education of their children, the Fathers of Portland ashed first of all, "\\ hat can we do tor our schools?” Many of them had lost their buildings togeth er with all '.heir textbooks and apparatus, while others that were more fortunate in this respect, found that the children as well as the men and a omen, were so thoroughly excited and appalled, that to attend to school duties and exercises was quite impossible. But a few days were sutlicient in which to outlive this feeling; and a tew days gave the Fathers of the town time enough to answer the ques tion as to w hat should he done tor the schools. The answer came lirni and decided, as it al ways comes everywhere in New England,' when such a question is presented,—“The schools must he the last to auder.'’ To the honor of Portland let it he recorded, that not withstanding lour school houses were destroy ed, and eight schools left without rooms, and the city had met with such an unprecedented loss of property, within ten days ail save tliree Ft •jjnaries ware reorganized and at work as usual; and ere the vacation which was close at hand, had passed, these Fiimaries were provided with new temporary buildings.— •some schools reopened with less than half their original number and without a text hook of any hind. But amidst all this confu sion and want, the teachers were not disheart ened, for they saw opened before them an un usual held ol usefulness. They went bravely about their work iutcresting and instructing the remnant of their scattered tlocks, with no text hook except the one the apt and skillful teacher always has in his possession. Thus they worked on, carrying the impression as much as possible that nothing had happened that need interfere very seriously with school duties. Soon the wanderers began to learn that the schools were actually still in exist ence, and found their way back, and by the energy ofthe School Committee, the liberali ty of triends far and near and the great consid eration and generosity of the publishers of the various text books now in use in the . schools, the pupils were ah very soon supplied with books, and performing their daily school duties as usual. Ferhaps other teachers may learn a proli ta ble lesson from these few facts. ion may be assured that you can do much tor your school undermost unfavorable^circumstances. Vou may lose your school room, your hooks and apparatus, indeed everything hut your love of your work, your ambition and your faith, and still hold your school together and do work of which you need not be ashamed. If you are comfortably supported and have good evi dence that your labors are acceptable, it disas ters do come, stand to your post. Frobably it will never happen to any teacher in this coun try that he will amass a fortune by his profes sion, indeed he need hardly expect more than to live comfortably, but if he has done his work faithfully and well, he may have a sat isfaction better than riches cau bring, that of having doue something to elevate his race. The Canadian War. The Tribune's Constantinople correspondent, writing under date of Dec. 7, says: It is said and generally believed in town, to day, that Fuad Fasha, the late Grand Vizier and the former pacilier of Mount Lebanon, has been appointed with unlimited powers, to go to Crete. 1 still doubt whether the Gov ernment, which is very inimical to Fuad Fasha, has decided upon this step; but, on the other band, it is certain that the ±*orte could not do a better thing than send him there. It is not yet impossible to treat with the Can diotes and make terms with them. In the bpring, if they hold out so long, it will be; but now, with the long Winter before them, with their families suffering untold horrors, they may be inclined to listen to any one whom they can trust. Fuad Fasha would go then, with a #good reputation derived from his action in feyna, and without any of the disabilities which rest upon Mustupha Fasha, who hud once be fore drowned the Cretan rebellion in blood, in whom the people could have no confidence.— They would at once have more to fear and more to hope from Fuad Fasha. 1 am inclined to Hope that the news of his appointment will be continued, and that he will succeed in pacify ing the island on fair terms. The Turks are very much exasperated at the American Consul at Crete, and demand his re moval. Jt is not my place tojudge him, andl do not wonder that, being an American and a gentleman, he sympathizes with the suffering Cretans rather than with the Turks. It is not easy to remain neutral under such cio uni stan ces, bur, in tlie first place, we never ought to have had a Consul at Crete. Me can be of no possible use to the C hi ted btates, and his sala ry is absolutely thrown away. (The same may be said of the Consul at Cyprus and the pro posed Consul at Bucharest.) But the worst thing is that it is knowu about town and by the Forte, that he if; the author of the obnoxious letters in The Levant Herald, for which the paper was prosecuted, and for republishing which half-a-dozen papers have been stopped. I say this is known. It is auid by those con nected with the paper, byr the Greeks general ly, who know what is going on, unu by the 'lurks. Now, this is ceriainJy uuiortunuie, to say the the last. lie might have furnished this news we'i enough, perhaps, if those who receiv ed it could have ka\e kept their mouths shut, but they hav e not. The Turks regard him as a partisan, and the Greeks look upou him as an ally, M is action has led them to expect ma terial aid from America, and in this way has really done them harm, tor they can never have such aid from us. Ail this is unfortu nate. Fcrhaps no true American in his place could have done better, but there never should have been any American Consul there at all. i l*« Pmidcnt’i LuiiU The New York Evening Post, a paper which sustained, as naviog some color ol’ cynstitu tional ground, Mr, Johnson's veto of the Freed mcn s Bureau bill, uses tbe following lan guage in reference to the latest veto message: The message only shows that the President is, now, opposed to universal suffrage—so much the worse tor him. lu the veto message he has struck a blow at progress not only here but in Ureal Britain, fie Iras ranged himself on the side of privilege and against popular lights. He has put words in the moutbs of the Eng lish tories, as well as in tli03e of the reactiona ry party here. The same arguments which he uses to oppose the grant of suffrage in the fed eral district to a tilth of its population, are used in England to exclude nine-tentlis of her people—our true and steadfast friends, our faithful and incorruptible allies during the war. ft is with profound grief that we see a Presi dent ol tbe United States standing on such ground. But bis message will uot stop tbe march of liberty and progress. It will only strengthen the sentiment he tries to put down, and animate the friends of universal suffrage to renewed and more vigorous efforts in every State. M e shall uot go back because a Presi dent chosen by us is false to his own declara tions a ud to tbe spirit which seemed to animate him during the rebellion. Tan Turkish Mission to Amekra. A let ter from Constantinople, published in the New York Tribune, says: I gave circulation, some time ago to the re port thata minister w as to be accredited to the United States by the Porte. I did so on the authority of no less a person than Mchemet Ali Pasha, the leading man of the present Turk ish ministry; hut it would now seem that there was both more and less hidden under his re mark than 1 then supposed. It was never the purpose of the Pone to send a permanent min ister to America. Tell it not in Gath. The real idea of the Greeks was to send a special complimentary mission to the Emperor ol Mi jJco. They thought it would uot do to ac credit such an embassy, to go through the Uni ted .Suites, without adding to it a mission of compliment to Washington, so We were to be kindly taken in tyider the wing of Maxiuiili Generai. Grant andth* Veto—The Bos ton Advertiser's Washington dispatch says: It is due to General Grant to contradict in the most positive terms the statementtasNew York paper to the effect that be app?J “d Df tba veto message on the: District suffrage filll As tar as can be learned from his most intimate friends, he has expressed no opinion on th, matter, hut his views uiay be easily inferred from tlie fact that on Saturday he advised the Arkansas delegation, then here, to go home and at once do two things: first, secure the adoption of the amendment to the Constitu tion; and second, bring about au extension of the franchise to the colored people of their Btate. The Troops in Richmond. Gen. Grant's communication, a few days since, with refer ence to the removal of troops from Richmond, was simply one of inquiry whether General Schofield could with convenience spare one of tlm regiments from his department. The state ment that he had demanded the withdrawal of all the troops was an error General Schofield returned a negative reply, and thus rests the matter for the present. -A wicked wag says the reason young ladies look so bold anil fleiee in these latter days is* that they tie their hair so tightly on the back •f their head that they cannot shut their eyes which gives them their fierce look, and then their tremendous waterfalls so balance their heads up that they seem to “cock tljeir chins” pt everybody, hence their bold, defiant look, j PORTLAND AND VICINITY.

Perley.Esq., presiding. The report of the Treasurer, William Ross, Esq., was presented, read, accepted and order ed to bo placed on file. * Prom this report it appears that the gross re ceipts from the running of the steamer City of Richmond from April 24th to Nov. 27th were $64,672.24, from the following sources: freight, $17,689.15; passengers, $38,292.74; staterooms, $3,536.00, meals $5,154.36. The running ex penses were $51,809.05, leaving a balance in favor of the boat of $12,863.19., which is in creased by stock on hand to upwards of $14, 000. A dividend of 5 per cent, has been de clared and paid upon the capital stock. On a ballot for Directors for the ensuing year, Messrs. Jonas H. Perley, Weston F. Mil, liken, James N. WinBlow and John B. Coyle, of Portland, and Oeorge Walker, of Machias, were unanimously elected. The report of the committee appointed by the Board of Directors in November last, to purchase the good will, &c., of the inside route from Portland to Bangor, was read and adopted. The Committee reported that they had effected a purchase of the wharves, leases and good will of that company—the steamers having been sold to other parties. Some discussion was had npon the subject of purchasing a steamer for the Bangor route, which was participated in by Messrs. Sturd evaut and Coyle of Portland, Powers of New Fork aud others. A proposition has been made to the company, by the Portland Steam Packet Company to sell the steamer Lewiston. A proposition was also made by Capt. Powers to build a steamer in the same style of the City of Richmond, rather larger aud deeper, capable of conveying 200 passengers. The matter of purchasing a steamer and sup plying the route was finally left with the Di rectors. !j ■ It was voted to petition the Legislative for privilege to increase the capital stock ot the corporation.

Bxautiful PAisma.—We desire to oall the attention of lovers of Art in this city to the line painting now on exhibition at the apothe cary store oi Messrs, A. G . Schlotterbeck & Co. 303 Congress street. It is the work oi our townsman, Mr. J. B. Hudson, and represents the view of Mt. Desert as it is seen from Mount Lookout. The most noticeable point in the picture is the combination of the characteris tics of ocean aud mountain scenery, the broad expause of water in the background cut sharp ly by the interposition of the mountain in the middle distance. It is an afternoon effect, and all students of nature know that the water is more deeply blue at that time. The scenery is wild aud romantic, and has been very skillfully managed, the foliage, and the peculiar color ci the rocks in that region are rendered with much truthfulness, and the slant sunlight fall ing on one side of the picture, while the other remains in deep shadow, produces a striking effect. No one should lose an opportunity o1 pausing to admire this fine work of art. W e learn with pleasure that Mr .Hudson is soon to have a new and more commodious studio, aud that he will devote so much of his time as he is able to spare from painting and designing to the instruction of pupils in the “serene kand silent art.” Correction. — We are requested by Mr, Foster to say in relation to the accident that occurred to him as stated in the Press of ye» that he was ascending the hill when he saw the driver of the frightened hor9e thrown from his load and the horses at the top ot their speed rnsliing directly towards him. He turned his horse into an open space between two houses, but, in an instant, the frightened horses were upon him, striking him in the back with so much force as to throw him completely from the sleigh. He was quite stunned by the blow but succeeded in retaining his hold upon his own horse who had become nearly unman ageable. His sleigh was considerably damaged J. T. Emery, Esq., of this city, was a few rods in advance of Mr. F.; he succeeded in saving himself by instantly putting his horse under the lee ol some large elm trees by the side of tho road; and his escape was scarcely less marvelous than was Mr. F.’s. Ocean Insurance Co,—At a meeting of the stockholders of this Company, held Monday, the following gentlemen were elected Direct ors: Win. W. Woodbury, Jacob McLellan, Jonas H. Perlcy, Wm. Chase, Joseph Hale, Jacob S. Winslow, Jos. W. Dyer. Subsequently at a meeting of the Directors’ Wm. W. Woodbury was re-elected President’ and Geo. A. Wright, Secretary. A semi-an nual dividend of 0 per cent, was declared. Bailroad Obstructions—The Canada mail due at Island Pond at 10 o’clock Monday night, had not arrived when the train left Island Pond for this city at half past six o’clock yesterday morning, neither had the passenger train due at Island Pond at half past six o'clock yester day arrived. Both trains were delayed at Sher brooke, Canada East, by a fi eight train lieing oft' the track. The first dance under the auspices of the Irish American Belief Association, came off on Monday evening, at Mechanics’ Hall. It was, as we anticipated, a tine and pleasant affair.— Every person present went away well satisfied with the festivities of the evening. Tl»e sec ond dance will take place on Monday evening next. _ Runaway.—Yesterday afternoon the horac of St. John Smith, Esq., undertook to do a little business without a driver. He shied in and out from the other vehicles near the Boston de pot, but was very careful to avoid injuriug eith er Ins own vehicle or that of others, thus prov ing himself to be an exceedingly well bred horse.

There is no other known remedy equal to it; thousands have shared its benefits, and gladly recommend it to others, jaoG-dawtf Christian Association Lectures# The largest audience of the season assembled at State Street Church last evening, to listen to Dr. Storrs’ lecture on “American Manhood.” Manhood, the lecturer defined, to constat of the I sound judgmont aud unswerving will, which wherever they exist form centers of power and influence. It is the manhood of Greece aud Borne and France and Germany and England, more than any arts, or laws, or sciences, or philosophies, or industries, which gives these historic nations their rank and precedence. It is always the man, rather than any accomplish ment or incidental characteristic, who in histo ry attracts our eyes and holds our admiration. American manhood promises to excel any which has heretofore been developed. The blending of equal races, meeting upon this continent, will give rise to a richer product than has yet been seen. The moral discipline through which we have passed and are passing is such as no nation has received before. The quiet courage with which our people turned from the pursuits of peace to warlike endeavor, the boundless en ergy which displays itself in every department of our varied life—these bases of manhood we incontestably have. In love of men and rever ence toward God, we are superior to all races who have preoeded us. The moral questions continually force themselves to the surface in our politics, and canuot be kept down. Lin coln and Grant have already shown what quiet, strong, masterful characters our institutions may form. A rich, cosmopolitan manhood, simpler and nobler than the world has yet seen, is sure one day to grace this new world—not yet, perhaps not for centuries, bat at last surely. This outline of the discourse gives no hint of its affluence of suggestion and illustration, its grace of anecdote and force of expression. These the audience expected, and waa not die appointed. Engine Companies—Annual Meetings.-The annual meetings of the engine companies and kindred associations took place Monday even ing. The following are some of the officers elected: Machigonne No. 1.—R. Samuel Rand, Direct or; Charles E. Somerby, Clerk. Cumberland, No. 3. — Samuel A. Chesley, Foreman, vice C. H. Bowker; John H. Fenno. Clerk, vice G. H. Cloyes. Casco, No. 9. — Win. Hennessey, Foreman; Augustus L. Chase, Clerk. Associates, Ex-9.— Leonard Pennell, Presi des and Wm. Hennessey, Clerk. Washington Nook and Ladder, No. X.—G. B. Riiev, First Director; H. C. Hodsdon, Clerk; W. Gnbben, Steward. 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 hat changed, to 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. dec4tf M. L. A. Lecture.—The third lecture of the Mercantile Library course will be delivered this evening in Mechanics’ Hall, by Rev. H, M. Gallaher, ot Brooklyn, N. T. His subject will be “America and the Americans.’’ Mr. G. has proved himself to be one of the ablest and most interesting lecturers that has visited our city. Larceny of Tobacco.—Just before closing the store of Messrs. Mathews Sc Thomas, on Commercial street, last evening, a scamp stole a box oi tobacco that was standing inside the door and made off with it. Blindness, Deafness and Catarrh.—Dr. Carpenter, the Oculist and Aurist, has decided to prolong his stay in Portland until Feb. 1st. See advertisement in this paper. jan9w&s tf The Portland Circulating Library will close at 7 o’clock promptly, excepting on Saturday night, when it will close at 9 o’clock. Jan. 4—tit Attention is called to the advertisement of Thomas E. Jones, sign painter. The Stale Capital. Augusta, Maine, Jan. 8,1867. To ms Eoitor os tbs Tit***: The several joint committees will be announc ed to day. A large number of the senators of lastyearwere re-elected,(fifteen) whichseoures to them substantially the places which they held at the lost session, or a promo tion. The new members must properly take the less conspicuous and important places. It is a difficult task for the President of the Senate or Speaker to make up his committees with equal justice to all. Some persons are mors persistant than others, and are not slow in making their ambition or wishes known per sonally or through some friend to the appoint ed power. Not a few are better known at first, while the last of tho session brings to a favora ble notice the more retiring and modest. The Presiding officer is unable after a few day's ac quaintance to form anything like a correct opin ion ot the relative worth of a Senator or Rep resentative, consequently mistakes are frequent ly made. President Burpee and Speaker Bark er have been diligently at work, and will, no doubt, present a satisfactory list for the several committees. The particular committee or its importance, does not make the valuable member, hut his own personal qualifications should teoure to him public favor. Thare appears to be a general desire to in crease the salary of our Governor, An order was introduced into the House yesterday to re fer the subject to a committee consisting of one from each delegation. The present salary nsidered by all as entirely inadequate. Just now there is no excitement. The topics which appear to receive the most attention in general conversation are the railroad interests of the State. We anticipate there will be con siderable discussion on this sutyect, and such practical action as will securs to the State satisfactory results. The State has in both branches representatives who are well instruct ed in railroad matters and will bring to the discussion research and judgment. _ Quill. Suicide Attempted by PeUeu. [CORstpondenee oi the Preu.) The people of Buckfield have recently been much excited in consequence of an attempt of Miss Hattie Damon to kill herself by poison.— She is about 23 years old, good looking, of re spectable character aud active in the duties of life. Her mother is dead and her father is a poor man living some two nyles frqm the vil lage. She has never been at home much but has been a servant girl in several families and preserved a good character. She has been en gaged to a man by the name of Russell whom she expected to marry in a short time. Recent ly this man has been published to a widow— another proof that a widow is equal in tact and talent in the business of courting to a score of other women who have never loved but once. One day last week this girl was in the village and heard that Russell was published and ex pected shortly to marry another woman, a wid ow. This sad and unexpected news troubled her heart exceedingly; hut her feelings she art ftilly concealed, purchased a box of the Rat Ex terminator, travelled home two miles in the snow, froze her feet, spread the poison on some buttered bread and ate it. Shortly she was seized with violent vomiting and remained in that state several hours when a physician was called who administered the usual remedies. He thought her case a hopeless one, but now there is some hope of her recovery, and yet she wislSs to live no longer iu a world Which such men as Russell inhabit. It is said that he not only stole her heart but also borrowed her money for which she had worked hard. The case is indeed a hard one, and it is to be hoped that justice will yet overtake him It is ru mored that her friends and the friends of hu manity are moving in the affair. * County .Temperance Convention. The County Temperance Association will meet at Freeport to-morrow at two o’clock in the afternoon. A very pleasant and profitable time is anticipated. Beside the reading of val uable essays, good speaking and singing may be expected. The subject of temperance is fruitful of remark. Intemperance is an un mitigated curse, and none so fool-hardy as to deny it. Temperance is in the keeping of no particular party or sect, but finds earnest, out spoken advocates among all. One ot the topics tor discussion at the Free port meeting will be—Imprisonment for rumselling. Fines are well, imprisonment were better, and among the radicali are those who say that death were best. But on the comparative we choose at present to rest, be lie .'jog that here lies the remedy. The ques tion, However, is open for discussion, and the strongest arguments will prevail. SiXAKi oF thx Goyb&nok.—In the House, on Monday, an order was pqpsed raising a joint committee to takd into consideration the pro priety of increasing the salary of the Governor. When Maine was incorporated as a State, in 1820, the salary of the governor was fixed at #1000 per year. The sala.nes of other officer* have been increased since that time, but that of the Governor has remained unchanged. It is a mean pittance, and should b® at least doubled. —An Indian* editor threatens us with “a good dressing,” says the Louisville Journal.— Thank you, sir. Let it be black broadcloth, if you please. Our tailor will seadyeueur meas ure. THE STATE. —The Saco Democrat gays William Rowell, of Alfred, was found dead on the road between Alfred and Springvale. It is supposed he got bewildered in the storm week before last and froze to death. He leaves a family in Allred. —The Biddeford Union reports that Mr. Samuel Clark of Keunebunk accidentally broke hjs leg while rolling logs in his mill yard. —Several of the merchants of Saco have opened Thief accounts, to which they charge all of the goods they have stolen, and when any one is caught stealing make them square the account or stand a public exposure or prosecu tion, so that thieves will find that town an ex pensive place to commit their depredations. —Wood is selling in Farmington at W a cord. —Land on Sandy River, under cultivation, is worth two hundred dollars per aero. —The Machias Republican informs us during the recent heavy Tains, about forty feet of Wliit neyville and Machiasport Railroad was washed away near Scott's brook. A force of workmen was put to work repairing damages, and the road is now again in running order. —At a fire in Bangor, Tuesday night, Henry Maddocks, a fireman was severly injured by falling from a crowd. —A correspondent of the Biddeford Journal warns people against the not uncommon prac tice of having stove pipes enter their chimneys seven or eight feet or more from the floor, with a flue closed at some distance below. This be comes filled with toot iu process of time,which, when set on fire by sparks, oftens burns so in tensely as to set fire to the wood-work which comes in contact with the chimney. Many buildings have been burnt in this way. —The Bangor Whig learns that the saw, shingle, lath and spool mills of Messrs. D. & A. B. Willey, in Cherryfleld, were entirely consumed by fire on Saturday evening. Loss $3000; no inturanoe. The origin of the fire is unknown. Magazine*. In Gaiaxt for December 19, contains the oontinnation of ‘‘Tristan,’’ a story of much in terest, though slightly sophomoric in style; “Nix," a poem of considerable length by Mary Ellen Atkinson; an interesting paper on Sav onarola, by Mrs. Anna Cora Riti-hie; a lively article on the “Traditions of the Blackfeet” by John Mason Brown; the continuation of Dr. Trollope’s “Claverings," and “Ainu at the Beautiful Gate," a poem by H. H. “Imperial France; Past, Present and Future," is the sub jeut of a thoughtful and carefully prepared ar ticle by Mr. George M. Towle; Mr. Winwood Reade discourses of “The London Clubs,” and Mr. George Wakeman on the mysteries of ad vertising. “The Poor Capitalists,” by Marie -Howland, gives some interesting particulars in relation to the English Co-operative societies. “Shapes of a Soul" is by Mrs. Piatt, and “The House Oppoeite,” a rather sensational short story, by Maria L. Pool. The editorial chapter of “Nebula” in this number is particularly good. The Galaxy is now the only fortnightly in this country, If we mistake not, the only one published in English. It is very beautifully printed, in large clear type, with a handsome cover,commands and some ol fhe most vigorous and sprightly pens in America, giving its read ers for $9, something over 2700 pages of reading matter per year. Noethekn Lights.—Number Two of this promising magazine is published. Its contents embrace “Neighbors’ Wives," chapters V.

Stephens); “An Ocean Sunrise;” “Ra chel and Riatori f “The Ambishus Young Man;” “The Skeleton at the Banquet” (with illustration, by Aug. Hoppin); “Our Contribu tors’ Club, No. 2” (with illustration, by H. L. Stephens); “Bulletin of New Books.” “Wo man in the Rain,” is a suggestive and carefully considered article ou the much-mooted topic of Woman’s Rights; “The Ambishus Young i Man” is from the pen of the inimitable N'aaby. The sayings and doings of the “Contributors' Club,” reported in the style ot Wilson’s Nodt*, hid fair to be an attractive feature of this work, Ascent af Mssnl Head. An Oregon correspondent of the Springfield Rtpublican gives an account of two recent as sents ot Mount Hood. A clergyman who was with the first party writes: "The summit of the mountain is a circular ridge of three or four hundred yards iu length, having its outward curve to the north. On this ridge there are three or four eminences rising a few feet above the average of the ridge. The highest of these is the one to the east, though it is only a few feet higher than the others. We paesed along the entire ridge and over all these elevations. The snow upon them was from six to ten feet in depth, and only in one place did a single rock project through it. This was the extreme summit of the highest point of the ridge. On this rock, covering them .with a large fragment broken from it, we left as me mentoes of our visit two Pacific Christian Ad vocates of July fit, 1866, with the names of the parties written upon them, and some pieces of silver. Professor A. Wood describes the second ex pedition: “We have scaled the summit ofMount Hood. Owing to the warm weather and the advanced season, immense chasms in the snow have formed, rendering our journey exceedingly periloue and difficult. The grand result of this expedition is the measurement ol the moun tain. Mount Hood stands unrivalled among tha mountains of North America. By an im proved method, vis: the boiling water and thermometer, we aaeertained its height to he seventeen thousand six hundred and forty feet above the level of the aea (for the thermometer ■tood at 180 degrees in a hollow forty feet be low the pinnnacle.) Our two barometers foiled to indicate the enormous height, oue for its short graduations, the other for its short spring. The iormer made an entire revolution upon the dial, and its indications will be here atter computed. The mass of the mountain is volcanio lava and ashes. There is a crater yet open and constantly emitting sulphurous vap or. Glaciers are there also, as on Mount Blanc, composed of clear blue ice, gradually sliding down tbs awful ravines. The flora is exceedingly interesting, almost purely Alpine. We gathered specimens of more than thirty species peculiar to the mountain, many of which are new to science." Abtificiai. Bibds’Nxsts.—The Bulletin de la Societe d’ Acclimati m contains an interest ing account of artificial birds’ neats now used in some parts of Switzerland under the direc tion of the societies formed there tor theprotec. tion of insectivorous birds :— “One of the members of this description, M. X—,who lives in Yevay, having observed that many species of that kind select for nests the holes they find in the trunks of rotten trees, and that they consequently do not find it easy to settle in orchards, where all the trees are in good Condition, began twenty-five years ago to set up rotten trunks in his grounds; and since then he has had no need to trouble hiinj ■elf in the least about clearing away caterpillars, that care being entirely left to his winged guests, who perform their duty admirably. M. X-’s neighbors, on the contrary who have not had this foresight, have their orchards laid waste by a host ot verac ous ins ets. The Y verdun Society have gone the lcqgth of plac ing artificial nests even in tho public walks and communal forests, on the borders of the lawns, &c. All these nests are now inhabited by hedge-sparrows, redstarts, creepers and tomtits—all which may be found iu Switzer land as high up as the perpetual snow line. The same practice has found its way into Germany. The American Lead Pencil.—Faber’s lead pencils are reliable. Faber himself must be first cousin to the “reliable gentleman'’ of whom readers have olten heard. Faber labors under the disadvantage ot being a foreigner. Three American Germans (the best kind of Germans) have’ undertaken the business of manufactur ing American pencils out of Amcricau plum bago and American wood. For this purpose they have built a factory in Hudson city, N. J,> where they employ 175 men, and manufacture 300 gross of pencils every day except Sunday. Believing that their pencils would command the home mraket, they have invested four mil lions in the undertaking. Also, they have suc ceeded. Their pencils are, so for as we can judge, as good as Faber’s; some people say bet ter; but we cannot go into refinements like the drawing-masters. If any body wants a good re porter’s pencil, let him try an “American No. 2,” and express his obligations to us for the hint. Gritty? Yes, gritty as old cheese. —Two ceremonials of great interest recent ly took place in Paris. At the Hotel des In valides, the veterans and pensioners assembled in the chapel, around the remains of Napoleon I., twenty-six years having elapsed since they were brought back from St. Helena by the or der of Louis Philippe. On the same day, at the Chapel of Sorbonne, the few remains there are left of Cardinal Riohelieu were returned to the splendid Mausoleum in which they were laid over two centuries ago, and firoin which they were taken by the mob during the Revo lution. The restoration of the bones to their resting place was witnessed by the celebrities 1 of France amid great pomp. —It is reported from Paris that the Empress Eugenie intends to hold two exhibitions ot her own daring the next year—one in Trianon, the other at Malmaison. At Trianon all the furni ture and things that have any reference to Marie Antoinette are to be brought together: at Malmaison, those referring to Josepbiue ana Hortense. They will be, to a certain extent, loan collections, as the Empress is to address herself publicly to the proprietors of all suita ble relics. The two palaces will be decorated exactly as they were in the lifetime of these il lustrious personages. A “guide," with a his torical introduction and a complete index of all the furniture, dresses, jewels, linen, See., is said te be already in preparation.

With the opening of the new year w# presented to the leaders of the DAILY PRESS, A Paper Enlarged la the eiac af ihc largest New England Dsilin. The enlargement of our daily edition is equivalent to the addition of between three ami four columns to its size. This additional space will be devoted to de tails of important events, which we have heretofore been obliged to give in brief, and to selections from currout literature, grave or gay, such as we have lately been obliged to omit altogether. Wbnt the character of the paper thus enlarged will be, its past history will show. The Press was es tablished primarily to represent the Republican par ty of Maine. It was impossible for the controlling party of the State to remain voiceless In this city, l'he Prlss will continue to delend tho principles t-f the Liberal party of America. The wai has closed one great cycle in our national history—the cycle daring which aristocracy at the South and democra cy at tho North grew up side by side, a period of Jealousy and conflict, resulting in on appeal to arms and tho victorious supremacy of tho democratic prin ciple. We have enteral ou a sta*e of transition, which seems likely to prove longer than most of us antici pated. The Press will insist upon a settlement which will secure the fruits of our victory. Nothiug ie settled till it is settled light. We must have de mocracy at the South as well as at tho North—equal rights for all secured by equal laws, ttooJoiu of speech, freedom of the press, impartial suUrace. Of the profound convictions of the Republican party of Maine, the Press will remain a faithful exponcut. The present year will probably Witness the exten sion of the telegraph round tho world. Tho comple tion of that great enterprise will compel a change, which has already begun, in the management of newspapers. The leading features of the world's history will be registered from «lay to day by tho tel egraph. The expense of special disputches Item all parts of the world will prove too great for single newspapers, and correspondence will regain some thing ot Its old Importance. New8pa]«r associations or news agents will assume the task of funnelling the daily dispatches, while correspondents will fur nish details, explanations and illustrations, by mall. The Atlantic telegraph has already destroyed the system by which our foreign news has for years Use furnished by steamer, aud already the Tribune has its special correspondents established in almost every capital m Europe. Weccnno rival the feats ul New Turk Journalism but we must be governed by the same considerations. In view of the intimate rela tions existing between Maine aud the British Pro vinces by which she is environod, Wu arc happy te announce that “ brvRwink’s” Canadian Cotter** Will be continued. We have alee engaged Regular Curreapendenla ia Waahingtaa, Saw Yarb, Batlaa and Aagueta, and occasional correspondents at various points throughout the State. During the aeasrou ot the Legislature, ws shall publish Special Dispatches from Augusts every morning, tarnishing s sysop* sis of the previous day’s proceedings. To the people of Mains, and especially to poopls who have business relations with Portland, we hops to make the Press more valuable than any paper published outside of tho State can possibly be. W# shall publish the some telegraphic summary as otlisr New England newspapers. Wo shall not publish special dispatches from Washington, hut wo ihall have regular correspondence from that point, and s Daily Summary of Maine News which renders heie would he sorry to miss.

As a good tfcmiiy newspaper it lias no su perior; and while Mr. Lincoln occupies the city su itor’s chair there will be no lark of local news, as it is generally acknowledged in that depuruneui he tuft no equal in the State.

This evidence of prosperity on tiio part of so food and reliable a paper as the Press is gratify lag. r shows, too, that Portland has lost nothing.>i y i.*,* | enterprise or resource, by the great lire, but that its course is still onward— its business is in fact to creasing, notwithstanding the anpar.nt calamity of last year—and that its promise of commercial great ness is certain to be Ailfilled.
