The lfrtclnoM'. ])R]vS.Sl\u THI* HAM. The style of coiffures is decidedly closer to the head than lias been worn for years. The absurd cliiynows and surprising rolls at the side of the face will soon disappear from the promenades and dress circles. Two modes of dressing the hair are at present in vogue. The empire stylo lias much of the hair drawn bad; from the lace; has little curls on the forehead, and the high pull's aud twists of an cient model. This will be found suited to per sons with marked features, aud good necks to he revealed by the upliiled hair. The Gre cian style brings abundance of waved tresses low on the brow, and confines them in close mass behind, women with straight, regular features may wear this style with pride, and fasten the golden grasshopper on their brow, after the old Athenian custom, sacred to those of pure civic blood. A woman with aquiline ibalures will simply look as it she had forgotten herself if she wears this coil fure. To dress the hair after the empire style re quires that the front hair he parted three or four inches from the Brow and turned back, in Chinese fashion, with a short lock on each side of the lace, puffed, through which the ribbon that encircles the head should be pass ed. Five very light short fake curls should be piuueil at the middle parting, to the rib bon. (That’s what it’s tor, to attach this false arrangement to.) .The back hair is to be tied very high, and may then be made into a large braid, by twisting the strands round long, slender frizettes, (which you understand to mean any putting for the hair, whether ot horse hair, netted rolls, or matted hair, or colored wool) and then plaiting them. This braid occupies the back of the head, laid on straight, and the ends secured in the same way as a ‘'waterfall,” or the hair may be di vided into four or five locks, these twisted around slender rolls, aud the puds curled round the back of the head, avoiding even ness of coil, however, and taking for model some grand high twist ot tho fashion plates of the last century, if you can find auch a curiosity. This style gives most persons a better outline of the neck than the old, low lyin<* masses of hair allowed, and on good figures gives a graceful dignity, approaching that of a coronet. By the way, Hat, heavy braids at the back of the hair, and a coil pass ing rountf the top and brow, is at once a clast ic and stylish mode of dressing the hair, very suitable for large heads that require a oom pact form of coiffure. A tavorite style oi dressing me uaca ua:r is in horizontal loops or pulls of different breadth, avoiding the excrescent-like look of the round chignons as much as possible. It is rumored that there will be a great rage for givhig toilet cushions as Christmas presents, as the stuffing of the masses of hair rendered useless by the new fashion can be put to uo better pupose. Persons receiving such gifts may perceive a faint odor of cilronella or co coaine about them which the above hint will fully account for. The front hair is also worn in several hori zontal rolls at the side of the face, aud a gold thread or narrow velvet run between the putt's. False chignons come in pretty style—a flat broad hraul encircled by a cable twist. Com mon switches of hair can be made into em pire twists, and save much trouble of head dressing. The unpleasant flying and snapping ol the hair when brushed in cold weather, may be got rid ot by bolding the head over a hot stave or tlie register a moment. To friz short hair nicely, curl it in many close loops, then thread these out with the Ungers. The straightest hair may be frizzed beautifully without harm to the growth by taking care never to have the curling iron scorching hot. A mixture of ammonia and olive oil will be found one ol the beat hair dressings. l!ut be earetul, whatever you use, don’t scent it with that vulgar pefume, citro nella. _ (Speech of a Negro Soldier. The night before Christmas tlie negroes in Augusta, Ga., met to consider the question of emigrating to land offered by the Government iu Florida, Texas, Alabama and Mississippi. Tlie Bureau ageut explained the matter, and some one suggested that they should send au ageut to Waghington to urge universal am nesty and suffrage. Whereupon an ex-sol dier, colored, said: “Brethren: 1 have seen the lands the Gov ernment offers you; they are not as good as you’d like to have, but you'd belter go and take them. Some of you say,‘what, go an’ leave all I have in Augusta ! But what have you iu Augusta? liave you land or house, or home ? < an you get yonr wages, after you work for them, halt the time? Can you get justice ? You remember ’bout that woman up there, an’ her husband went to help her, and halt a dozen of the white people put their pistols light up to his breast and shot him.— You know they got a jury of all the men that had been in the penitentiary and such bke, uuj Ar.:r i„—.are is, * verdict. JYot Guilty,— [Sensation.] You’d better go. You’d better go at ouce. It’s pretty near time to prepare to piaut the corn. Captain White says you’ll get thirty days rations alter you’re there. That's all well, but it won’t last you long. I expect some ot you will die, with your old masters; for they won't give you your rights. You’re notified not to come on their land, and you all come crowd ing into Augusta; an' I've seen two or three dead in one house an’ hardly can get them buried. [Sensation.] Now mind, if you must die, die for yourselves and your children.— When I shouldered my musket to tight for the freedom of my race 1 never expected to live, I expected to die tor my country, but God has spared me through it all. (Applause.] t lur stranger brother has spoken ol' sending some one to Washington lo look out lor your right to vote. [Tremendous applause.] He’s spoken of universal amnesty. He’s got more charity than I have. I say trike the‘pow er awayforever from the men that tried to destroy this government. These rebels are a great deal better off to-day than they ever expected to be if they were defeated. They expected then that every toot of land would be taken away from them. I was among them. I heard them talk. Look at New Orleans, how our jieople were butchered by the very police that should have protected them. They met together unarmed and peaceably, and they were butchered—ice don’t know how many! Brethren, I don't go in for pardoning such men for they don’t ask God to pardon themselves. An Important Invention. Mr. H. S. Sanboru, of Wisconsin, exhibited, a few weeks since, before the Technological In stitute, an invention recently patented by him for improving the tire-proof quality of sates. It consists iu the adjustment id water vessels in side the safe, next to the walls, in such a way that, when heated, valves are opened by the steam which after bathing the heated walls, es capes through the cracks about the door, car rying off the caloric and keeping down the tem perature of the whole interior to near the boil ing point, thus preserving the contents of the safe for any desirable length ol' time. At a test made in Hadley’s brick-yard, in Somerville, two weeks ago, a safe witli this improvement pres irved its contents entirely uninjured, and with but a slight draft upon its capacity, through a lire that completely destroyed the contents of a similar*Sat'c withoutit. Another experiment was tried at the same place, on Fri day last, with still more remarkable results.— Two safes of similar make and size were used, one with walls just half as thick as those of the other. Into the safe with the thin walls were placed water vessels, according to Sanborn’s plan, of such dimensions that with the addi tion thus made the wails ut the two safes were of equal thickness. Books and papers were put into each. At 9 1-2 o’clock, A. M. a fire was made about them, of dry pine wood, which was kept up through the day. About 2 o’clock black smoke issued from the safe that bad not the improvement in it, showing that, even then, the interior was on fire. Only steam calne out around the door of the. other. At 5 1-2 P. M. the fire was withdrawn. The safes continued nearly red hot two hours longer.— At 7 they were cooled, and half an hour'later they were opened. The contents of the thick wall safe were burnt to aslies. The contents of the bail born sale, although the walls contain ed but 2 1-2 inches ol cement filling, were as sound and fresh as when put in, and the large proportion ot the water still remaining showed that it would have withstood the fire many hours longer. Hus experiment proved to the gentlemen who witnessed it that a safe with Mr. Sanborn s improvement will resist the ef fects of tire at least three times as long as any other safe with the same thickness of walls reckoning as a part of the walls in the Sanborn safe the space which the water vessels occupy aud that this invention can be so applied as to render a safe fire proof for any length of time The philosophical points of this new invention which give it its great value, lie in the tact that nothing bathed in unconfined steam can be heated much above the boiling point, and the water vessels, like everythin" else in the safes _ being thus protected, are little exposed to heat ' and tlie evaporation proceeds so slowly that the water can be made to last as long as may be desired. Wo understand this safe will goon be offered to tbe public for sale. , A I'Rench Amazon.—The Baroness Binet de Mareognet, widow of General Mareognet, died recently in France. She was tlie daugh- j ter ot a Captain Le Mormier, who fell mortally ! wounded in one qf the battles of the first Em pire, and, in dying, besought his intimate friend aud Comrade, Mareognet, then his sinie rior officer to take charge ofhis daughter*^ He accepted the trust. When she attain ed her twentieth year he sent for her, and from 1 that time she shared the fatigues and the dan- I gers oi' her protector until the disbanding of I the army of the Loire. The better to perform 1 this labor of love she assumed the dress of an aid-de-camp. At tlie battle of Waterloo she i hastily jumped into the wagon of the General’s, I where her mother happened to be; saved her by presenting one of the pistols she carried at the officer of ordnance, aud threatening to blow out his brains if persisted in traitorous inten tion of leading them to tlie enemy under the pretext of a false order of the General. In 1838 Md lie. Julie le Mormier became the wife of the Baron de Mareognet, whom she surviv- j ed some years. —A correspondent of a New Haven exchange asks if there is any such“lusus naturae" as sing ing mouse, for if there is he thinks he has one in his house that warbles at night with the sweet ness, harmony and fullness of two or three ca nary- birds. Another writer hM a mouse in lns room which sings every night 1 as sweetly as a canary bird, though not as loud. It has a partiality for bird seed and will eat that in preference to ' anything else; and what is still more singular | the mouse is perfectly at home with two cana ry birds and runs in and out at pleasure, eOllTLAND AND VICINITY.

JUDGE KINGSBURY PRESIDING. Frida Y.—Henry A. White, on a search and seiiure process, paid $22.20. Byron Annis, for larceny of a cap, tlie property ot Edwin Goodwin, paid a tine and costs, amounting to $13.17. _ Ah Outsider’* Opinion* We copy the following article from the Gos pol Banner to show how our fellow-citizen, Hon. John B. Brown, is estimated outside of the city of his adoption, and also for the pur pose of correcting a mistake as to the birth place of Mr. B. He was boru in Lancaster, N. H., from which place his father removed to Ox ford County: There is no man in Maine, perhaps, of great er business ability than J. B. Brown, Esq., mer chant of Portland. He was born, if we mis take not, in Oxford County, and commenced operations for himself, a poor boy and in a most humble way, some forty years ago. He is now unquestionably the richest man in Maine, esti mated by some to be worth between tour and five millions of dollars. By the great fire in Portland in July last, many buildings belong ing to him were destroyed. With the double purpose of showing the business capacity and ability of Mr. Brown, and affording our readers an idea of what has been done in Portland in the way of rebuilding since the fire, we present what this one man has accomplished. While the fire was yet raging, he telegraphed to Mr. E. F. Beal, Esq., of Norway, his old master-builder, to come lo Portland, and the next day commenced clearing away the debris, aud has since erected 1. A sugar manufactory nine stories high, which, together with its appendages, required 3,000,000 ot brick and 3,000,000 feet of lumber. The floors of this building make an aggregate of more than four acres. In this building are twelve steam boilers, for boiling the syrup, for motive power aud for warming purposes, each of which is 30 feet in length. There are also three stationary engines. The building con tains 60,000 wrought iron pots for straining the syrup, holding each 14 gallons. Three thousand tons of coal will be required annually to run the manufactory. 3. Since the middle of October Mr. Brown has also built a wharf which he has named "Mer chants’ Wharf," 800 feet long by 70 feet wide, 300 feet of which is solid work and 500 feet is built on piles. 3. On thisfwharf he has erected a warehouse 406 feet long by M wide, and two stories high. All of which is finished and under rent, aud the whole accomplished, let it be remembered, since the middle of October last. 4. Since the fire, J uly 4th, he has also re modeled and erected twenty-three stores on Congress, Middle, Free, Centre, corner of Brown aud Congress, York aud other streets, many of which are first class and most elegant and nearly all of which are finished and under rent. Aud besides all this, Mr. Brown has laid the foundation of ten more stores which he designs to erect in the spring. The cost of all these buildings is no small amount as our readers may judge by a single item. We stated <iL)OVtt tlicit llw aU"iM livuac rt^uirud 00,000 wrought iron pots. These cost $3.00 each, amounting to $180,000 in the aggregate. This is enormous for a single item, aud the facts we give will not be quest oued when we say they come to us, not from any doubtful authority or through any second hand channel, but from the lips ot those best qualified to know. This writing is not designed as merely a com plimentary notice of Mr. Brown, but to speak of him as a business man and relate something of what he is doing towards rebuilding Port land. Still we cannot close what we have to say without an expression of warm approba tion of the man. He is one of Portland's no blest and most enterprising citizens. In giving work under the most generous compensation, lo the hundreds of laboters in his employ, he encourages industry, scatters abroad his ample means and carries blessings to all who share them. And besides, he is a noble patron of every benevolent cause and worthy enterprise. Long may he live to enjoy the fruits of his ef forts and to bless his lellow men, his city and his State. Sinoulab Robbehy.—A gentleman living in the suburbs of the city, on Christmas, invi ted a family gathering, from grandpapas down, to meet at his house and dine. The “gude wife" had made all things ready, the table was set, at the head of which, reclined his majesty —the turkey. Mrs.-was busy as a bee, flit ting from one room to another, putting the last finishing touches to the table arrangements. The kitchen being very warm, the outer door had been left open and the savory odois from within attracted the attention of Nero, fa large Newfoundland dog) who, watching his chance> walked boldly into the dining room aud seized the turkey by “the part that went over the fence last,” just as the lady came out of the cupboard, aud who, seeing the nicely browned bird going out ot the room ahead of the dog, in much the same position as the bowsprit to a Bhip, instantly gave chase with the broom, continuing the pursuit ot the dog and the fowl around the yard, into the woodhouse by one door and out at another, shouting at tbe top of her voice—“let go, you rascal.” But still the turkey would keep just so far ahead of the dog, who also kept out of the reach of the broomstick, all parties going at a high rate of speed, until the lady got fairly exhausted, aud Nero escaped with his prize. The discomfited hostess re-entered the house, looking anything but “mild and lovely,” and announced to the guests the sad loss of the favorite dish—and great was the indignation thereat—but at last a sense of the ludicrousness of the affair be came apparent, and while they feasted upon plum pudding and pies, many were the jokes and great was the laughter. The company separated at the usual time, after one of the most pleasant reunions it was ever their good fortune to enjoy. p. p. Serious Accident.—A staging in front of a house on the corner of Lincoln and "Wilmot street, in process of erection by Mr. Wescott, gave way yesterday when five men were upon it, and they were all precipitated to the ground a distance of some thirty feet. Three of the men, among whom was Mr. Wescott, were se verely injured. Mr, Wescott was injured in the spinal column and thigh, and one whose name we could not learn, had one of his legs badly broken, and the third sustained several wounds and bruises.

He was arrested yesterday morning, and sent, by the Overseers of the j Poor, to the workhouse, where plenty of em- 1 ployment will be afforded him during the ' winter. . _ Liquor £ eizubes.—The Deputy Marshals 1 yesterday seized two barrels of ale at the shop i of A. G. Cook, Corner of Brown and Congress streets; also, a small quantity of liquor in the shop of Dennis Warren, on Washington street. ! There is another place that the officers know of : which they intend to visit to-day. Good News —The Spring street Mission So ciety, at a meeting held Monday evening voted to open the Spriug Street Mission School at 1 once, and elected Dr. E. Kimball Superintend ent. The school will commence to-morrow at half past one o’clock. All friends of the school are invited. Secretary. A Card.—The Treasurer of “The Associa tion for the Relief of Aged, Indigent.Women,’’ gratefully acknowledges the receipt of 81000, a bequest from the late Mrs. Henry H. Boody, of this oity. Also $75.35 from the contribution ; taken at the late lecture in Central Chureh, Portland, Januaiy, 1807. ITiristinn Association l.eeiiiiesa Dr. Sfcirrs delivered a second lecture last evening, under tlie auspices of the Young Men’s Christian Association. His theme may be de’" fined to be the Saxou element in English his tory. Kobin Hood, as represented by the lec-^ turer, is not merely the merry outlaw ot the ballards, but a partisan chief fighting for lib erty as truly as Ethan Allen or Marion, the central figure of a wide and spreading rebel lion against arbitrary power which pointed and led straight to Magna Charts and constitution al liberty. The Saxon element in English char acter furnished the instinct of personal liberty which in religion protested against the Papa cy. Wiclcliffe sustained the same relation to the popular movement for moral and intellect ual freedom which Robin Hood, a century be fore, bad sustained to the nuveinent for politi cal liberty. The lecture itself was full of tlie robust manhood which it celebrated, vigorous iu diction, utterance, and action, fit words fitly j spoken, manly speech adapted to an age which has seen manly deeds. Amongst the many improvements that have j been made in this city since the fire, the store of Messrs. A. G. Schlotterbeck & Co., 303 Con gress Street, ranks undoubtedly among the j first. Tlie beauty and unity of arrangement are unsurpassable; the good taste and manner of fitting up a store of this kind, is better than lias ever been displayed in this city or State before. For the accurate compounding of prescrip tions this firm has made special arrangements, by placing a second counter for this branch of their business, directly back ot their serving counter, whereby tlie customer and the com pounder of the prescription are so far apart as to make conversation difficult. This gained, mistakes are easily avoided. This is something that has been needed lev a long time, and we congratulate our fellow citizens for this place of safety, as far as medicine is concerned.— Chemicals which change by the rays of light acting upon them, and decomposing the same, are kept in bottles of pure glass, which protects them and preserves them most effectually. An enterprise of this kind, with a choice stock of patent medicines, fancy goods, &c., as this firm has on hand, they cannot but meet with the success they so much deserve. Ml. Stephen's Church. Mr. Editor:—At the meeting of St. Steph en’s Church, the Rector stated that he promis ed those who gave him the $13,000, that not one dollar should be expended to re-building the Church in the lower part of the city. One who was Present. Portland, January 11th, 18C7. Removed.—Messrs. Tukey, Chase & Co., who were burned out of Union street, at the . great fire, are back again and have taken the spacious warehouses Nos. 52 and 54, which they have stocked with a full line of boots and shoes, which are olfered, at wholesale only, at the lowest prices. We regret to learn that the amiable and es timable wife ot City Marshal Heald is at the point of death. Yesterday afternoon there were no hopes of her recovery. Mains’ Elderberry Wine is the best reme dy in the world for Piles. Buy one bottle and try it.

Cunaervatiam and Radicalism at Augusta. [Correspondence of the Press.] Augusta, Jan. 11,1867. A communication from Augusta in the Ar gus, which appears to be written by one who claims great familiarity with the inside opera tions of the Republican party, among other statements not altogether reliable, alleges that Hon. William P. Frye was supported by the Conservative portion of the party, at the cau cus of last week, for the nomination of Attor ney General. No member of the party or Legislature felt that influence, nor did it even remotely enter into the contest between Mes srs. Frye and Shepley. Both of the Honorable gentlemen were acceptable to the party, as far as relates to their individual opinions on the political question of the day; and on that question there was no division or talk. Mr Frye took occasion to-day, in the House, to refer to the matter on the question of refer- ! euce of that part of the Governor’s message which relates to the Constitutional amend ment, to the Committee on Federal Relations. While he deprecated immediate action, ha said that he was much like 'Jihad. Stevens, who stated that during the last session of Congress, | he “might have been too conservative,but now he was radical.” He entirely repudiates the I idea of conservatism—which statements will ! be considered entirely unnecessary where he ! is best known. General Shepley is cited by the same au thority as the Radical candidate. His asso ciates in the western counties of the State con sidered him sufficiently right and deserving to give him a unanimous support, and his Radi calism was no bar to a unanimous muni tion. They united with his numerous friends in other sections, feeling that the legal experi n ce of later years would bring corresponding ; honor and value to an office which he had re- ' fused in his earlier life. He would have been elected had not his friends been sure that his high legal character and political standing were sufficient guaranties of his nomination. Other parties were steadily at work for their candi dates, and undue importance was attached to the words “I am not a candidate.” It served as a qtietus on active work which is essential for success in a closely contested nomination. ; Other combinations peculiar to legislative cau- ! cuses, lor which Mr. Shepley is not responsi ble, aided in the nomination of Mr. Frye. It is pleasantly over, and the Republican party cqrdially acquiesce in the choice of the convention, bnt not without a settled convic- j tion on the part of all the members of the Legislature, that the vote, or the loss of a nomination does not in any way indicate the unpopularity, or a lack of confidence in the high character or political opinions of General Shepley by the Legislature of 1867. He held in the highest estimation, and the Radi calism of which the Argus speaks, which it opposes, will make him a file leader of a host l ot friends, who may one day aid in planting that banner on the White House at Wash ington. Thebe and Here. County Temperance Convention. The meeting of the County Association held at Freeport on Thursday, was an interesting occasion. The attendance both afternoon and evening was large, and the proceedings harmo nious and satisfactory. O. S. Beale, Esq., of this city read an admirable essay on “Young men and the Temperance Cause,” which we trust to see in print. Miss Augusta Meservc recited in a very pleasant manner—“The Dev il’s visit to Portland,’’and the “Water Drinker,” which received the warm approval of the audi ence. A very lively and entertaining discussion arose on a resolution introduced by Mr. Wal ton, that the Prohibitory law should be amend ed by adding imprisonment for its violation.— Among the speakers were Hon. Seth Seam man and Rev. Mr. Martin of Scarborough, Mr • Harmon of Saco, Messrs. Walton, Reade, F. N. Dow, Rich, and I^-v. S. H. Merrill of Portland, Rev. Mr. Nichols of Pownal, Rev. Messrs. San born and Barrows, and Capt. W. P. Rogers, of Freeport, Mr. Starbird of Falmouth, Mr. Doug lass of Cape Elizabeth and Mr. Stackpole ot Gorham, The resolution was unanimously adopted amidst applause. The following gentlemen were elected officers ofthe Association for the current year: a naoiDEn a . E. H. Starbird, Esq., Falmouth. VICE PRESIDENTS. Hon. A. E. Stevens, Portland. Hon. Seth Scammau, Scarborough. Dr. A. Parsons, Windham. Rev. B. T. Sanborn, Freeport. Hon. Chas. Holden, Portland Hon. J. A. Waterman, Gorham. Dr. Shannon, Cane Elizabeth. Benjamin True, Pownal. Capt. Lane, Yarmouth. Capt. I. T. Quinby, Westbrook. E. A. Sawyer, Portland. Secretary.—F. G. Rich, Portland. Treasurer,—Rev. Mr. Nichols, Powual. Executive Committee,—C. A. Stackpole, O. S. Beale, E. Leach. A large delegation was appointed to attend the State Temperance Convention to be held at Augusta on Thursday 24th of Jan uary instant, with special reference to an amendment of the Liquor law.— It would seem to be the purpose of the friends of temperance in this State to push that matter until the end shall be accom plished, namely: Imprisonment as a penalty for the sale of intoxicating drinks. Medical.—A meeting of the Homseopathic physicians of this State has been called at Au gusta, Tuesday, the 15th inst., for the purpose of organizing a State Hoimeopathic Medical Society. The necessity for such an organization has long been felt by the members of the profes sion, and it is expected the forthcoming meet ing will be one of unusual interest to those who have adopted this system of practice. THE STATE. —Postmaster General Randall has appoint ed E. Brown, Postmaster at Webb’s Mills, vice It. M. Webb, deceased. —Returns received at the office of the Secre tary of State, show that during the last year there were two hundred and sixty-five bears killed in this State.

P olilical Tests iu Navy Yards. • Washington, Jan. 11, 1867. Tbe Secretary oi the Navy, in compliance with instructions, has sent to the Senate a re port covering all orders issued relative to the employment of men in the Norfolk- navy yard since the close of tbe war. There are some thinglike sixteen hundred pages of manuscript. Much of the matter is of no general interest or consequence, but a portion thereof is of signifi cance as showing how tbe Secretary manages the navy yards for political purposes. It ap pears that some time in the latter part of last September an order was issued by the Chief of the Bureau of Yards and Docks, by direction of the Secretary, to inquire into the political sta tus of workmen in the yard. Among the doc uments submitted is a letter dated Sept. 31, at Norfolk, aduressed to the Chief of the Bureau of Yards and Docks, in which he says: “In compliance with your orders the investi gations have been continued. I sent for Naval Constructor Hanscom, Chief Engineer Newell and Civil Engineer Worrell and asked for the results of their inquiries. Mr. Newell states that his foreman of machinists, James H. Clemer ts, went to the September Convention as a delegate accompanied by pattern maker James W. Brownley, and I have directed these men tp be suspended and await the orders of the bureau.” This precious document, showing that men were dismissed for attending the convention ol Southern loyalists, is endorsed by Joseph Smith, Chief of the Bureau oi Yards and Docks, as lolloiys:—1“This bureau docs not consider the n to the Convention as a delegate as a cause unissal." It also bears the (allowing in dorsement bv the Secretary of the Navy him self:—“The character and doings of the conven tion at Phildelphia could have been attended only tor partisan purposes, hostile to the ad ministration.” The papers do not contain the formal dismissal of these two men, but their fate is evident endugh from the Secretary’s in dorsement. The spirit of Mr. Welles is further apparent from a letter sent by him on tbe 20th of Octo ber, 1866, to Admiral Bowen, relative to the employment of temporary hands in the yard.— Ho gives him authority to employ' those in whose loyalty he has confidence, without re gard to their past course, and in order that bis moaning may beclear—in order that the admir al may understand that supporters of Congress are not to he employed, and are put on the same looting as original rebels,—he adds:— “It has not been the policy oi this department to give countenance or encouragement to dis unionists of any description.* Those whose op posethe government in its efforts to establish national unity, whether claiming that States have the right to voluntarily withdraw from the Union by secession, or striving hy arbitrary and illegal power to exclude States from the Union, and deprive them of their guaranteed constitutional rights, are not deemed worthy of service.”—Dispatch to the Boston Advertiser. Impeachment.—An exchange thinks the most effective promoters of the impeachment of the President are men like Mr. W. N. Ea ton, who, at the Connecticut Democratic con vention the other day, had the supreme folly to say that if Congress dared to go on with the matter, “a million of democrats would rise in arms and rally to the defence of the President.” Let it be once understood that a resort to a process expressly authorized by the Constitu tion is to be resisted by force or is to be hin dered by threats of force, and Congress will find it not only expedient but necessary to put the machinery in motion, in which case Mr. Eaton or anybody else who gets in the way> will be very likely to be ground up. Paientl — Patents have been granted to Amos Wilder, of Calais, for improved blacking box holder, and David M. Ayer, of Lewiston, for improvement in boots and shoes. —TlieN. Y. Evening Gazette says: “Since the close of the war nearly all the broken down boarding schools in the vicinity of New York have been changed into military schools. The result is that youne prigs of cadets are every where to be seen. Tho main ambition of the schools seem to be to deck out the boys in brass and stripes and fdkthers. All of which must be very pleasant to soldiers of the regular army, whose uniforms are imitated with great exactness.” North Carolina. A Washington dis patch of Thursday says: Among tlio document* laid before the House to-day was a memorial signed by A. H. Jones, representative elect prom the Charlotte dis trict, North Carolina, and 1438 citizens of that section of the State, praying Congress to div ide the Slate and let the loyal men of the western halforganizc anew State government. If this cannot he done, they urgentiy ask a re organization of the present State government

on a loyal basis. The sighuers of the mem orial embrace many of the leading men of j Western North Carolina, and it is looked upon as one of the most important papers presented at this section of Congress. A Card.

No injurious result can occur, let them be used in whatever quantity. Not a particle of calomel enters their composition. They may be used without further preparation, and at any time. Children will eagerly devour all you give them, and ask for more. They' never tail in ex pelling Worms from their dwelling place, and they will always strengthen the weak and emaciated, even when lie is not afflicted with worms. Various remedies have from time to time, been re commended, such as calomel, oil of wormseed, turp entine, &c., producing dangerous, and sometimes laial consequences.
