- Jflr. Hu sriie«. .ft* !*•» on the Ih'OHii'aliou of Kx-G®v. Kyre, Thomas Hughes, Esq., visited Birmingham on Thursday, the 27th of December, to speak j in the defense of the Jamaica Committee's in tended prosecution of Mr. Eyre. The meeting was numero usly attended, and the Mayor pre- 1 sided. In his address, Mr, Hughes,after allud ing to the sentiments uttered by Mr. Disraeli and Mr. Addcrley in the House of Commons, to the effect that after the proclamation of mar tial law there was no responsibility to the civil law for any acts that might be committed, re ferred to the Magna Charta, and to the Peti tion of Right of 1627, to show that Government did uotposseNss the power to proclaim martial law in any portion of the British dominions, and therefore such a power could not be dele gated to any colonial dependency. The real question at issue in the Jamaica business, he said, was whether prerogative or law should be supreme, and whether Englishmen would extend to all British subjects, of whatever col or or nationality, the same liberties and privi leges of which they themselves boasted. Speak ing of the treatment of subject and inferior races, he said: ai ui(! present moment they, the people of England stood in the place of Charles Stuart— as llie advocates of prerogative as against the great, body ot their fellow-citizens, the great body ol black and colored races iu all parts of the World, who now stood in the position of the English people in 1627, and said, Will you give us what you then asserted for yourselves; will you give us Jaw iustead of prerogative; will you extend to us colored people—debased people if you will—inferior to you in many ways, and yet your fellow-citizens, though fel low-citizens by no act ot our own—[hear, hear] — will yon extend to us those liberties ami those privileges which it has been your great boast as Englishmen to acquire and enjoy for your selves?” [Heal*, bear and applause.J For his owu part, he believed that the prosperity of England was involved in the answer which they gave this question. It is was a frightfully serious matter. The conduct of England to ward her subject races had become a matter which was stirring men’s minds, and they had an opportunity of judging that iu a very re mark able way. [Hear, hear] As an instance lie would draw their uLteuiion to au extract from a pamphlet ou the subject which had been written by Mr. ltouudell, the Secretary to the Jamaica Commission, and which has bceu read at the meeting of the Social Science Congress, luoue of his paragraphs Mr. ltouu dell said: ‘Before I proceed witn another part ol my subject, i propose to touch upou a point deeply aiiccmig the general relations between this country and all the races over which she has control, brought into further prominence by receut events in Jamaica. Much has been written and said on this de plorable subject, but 1 doubt whether public at tention lias sufficiently ri .e ed itself on what 1 take to be at the bottom of that deplorable event, the military spirit engendered by the In dian mutiny, the first fruits of which we have lately witnessed iu the red anarchy of Jamaica martial law.” Let them icwembei that it was the secretary of the ltoyul Commission, and not st member of the Jamaica Committee, who spoke in this way. Ho goes ou to say, “The spirit of which 1 speak, rooted in the utter ab sence of reverence for inferiors, is not, however, a peculiarity of this particular profession; it ex ists even in a more intense lorm iu the domi nant class of every community in which there are sharply defined contrasts of race.” [Loud applause.] lie had now said all he had intend ed to say to them upon a subject which he felt to be one of unspeakable importance at this time. [Hear, hear.] lie felt that the charac ter of England was more involved iu the ques tion ol the treatment of those people uuder our sway in all parts of the world—that their char acter hinged more upon their treatment of those -than iu any other act of their power, or in any other point whatever connected with our imperial policy. [Applause.] Now’, what was the real test of the nobility of a man or of a nation? Was it the way in which he treated those who were equal or superior to him iu strength? He believed not. lie was sure not. He knew that the real test of the nobility of a man was the way in which he treated those who were weaker than hiiuselt—[hear, hear]— aud it was Irom tins conviction that he very confidently appealed to any meeting of Eng* lislimen, and especially a meeting of English men in a town connected as that was with memories of the anti-slavery movement—that he with the more confidence appealed to them tv) come forward and support the committee who had undertaken—he should rather have said had forced upon them—[hear, hear]—a duty which involved the luture of those people or races—[applause]—a duty which though a noble w’as a very irksome oue to.carry through —{applause]—tor it was an irksooio thing lor private citizeus to be saddled with that which should be the business ol the government of the country. [Loud applause.] He ivinarken, in concluding his address, that that was the samequt stiou which was agitat ing and trying their brethren on the other side oi the ALiuniic. There they were crying out for equal rights of all, and whatever the issue might be, he hoped they would not be behind their brethren there, but through all parts of Eugland, would give a response to their appeal iu this matter, that they should have the bulwarks of the old British Constitu tion supported again by tresh charges of the Chief J ustice of this country, and that the Pe tition of Eight wouid be hereafter acknowledg ed, not only as the birthright of every English man, hut the birthright of every man, whatev er color he might be, who was born within the dominions of the Queen or Kingol England. Mr. Hughes resumed his seat amid loud and prolonged applause, and before the meeting separated a sub-committee, iu aid of the Jama ica Committee, was formed, aud over $2,500 had been already subscribed iu Birmingham toward the expenses of the prosecution. The I'aru Exhibition. more Yankee notions en route. The ship Mercury is now receiving at New York a cargo of articles destined for the great Exposition in Paris. A list of these would he found to comprise soino singular items. For instance :— Illinois sends a school-house—a real Western “fount ot learning,” especially designed and gotten up to show the people of Paris, and through Paris to show the whole world, in what sort of buildings the pedagogue plies his pro fession on the prairies and in the forests of the Western Continent. There is a bakery, too, a Boston bakery, in which M. Blot’s theory of cuisinerie will he made to blush—if a theory can be made to blush at all—by the Yankee gingerbread and brown cake bakers who will have charge of this pec uliar institution. Btill there is another building. This is a j farm-house all the way from Chicago. A more ! perfect model never did justice to its original. It is complete in every particular. Barns and outhouses surround it; vines run up its front and diffuse themselves over its roof; a fence surrounds it, and—well, it is a farm-house to perfection, and no more can be said to dcscribo it. These constitute the houses that will he on exhibition from this country. One progressive Yaukeedesired to construct a church and send it over, to give the Parisians an idea of the kind cfbuiidings devoted in this country to religious worship; hut his application was denied, ow ing to the great length of the steeple he design ed to erect lor his representative church. He said “he couldn’t reduce the steeple no how, for he wanted a place for the bell, and lots o' room for the tongue to do its waggin’." Among the works of art are paiutiugs by Bierstadt, Hick, Wier, Cropsey, Huntington, and other eminent American artists. Bierstadt sends his “Rocky Mountains,” and Wier fur nishes his celeorated paiuting illustrative of casting guns at the Parrott Foundry, at Cold Spring, on the Hudson. Many splendid books, specimens of the pub lisher’s art, arc in the cargo. Then there are grand pianos of the most cost ly description and most artistic completeness; carriages fit for the Emperor to ride in; a loco motive ; a street car; tobacco cutting machines; mowing machines; organs that would not be out of place in the grand Cathedral of Milan: wine from domestic grapes; raw and cured to bacco ; raw cotton and sugar; pine from the Carolinas; all sorts of domestic dry goods and goods of every description; crockery; Jersey porcelain and earthern ware, and hundreds of other articles which want of space will notper mit us to mention here. The Governor’s Address in the Prov INCES —The remarks of Governor Chamber lain in his address to the Legislature on the Confederation project of the British Prov inces naturally elicit some sharp comments from the Provincial press. The St. Croix Courier says; If the people of these Provinces desire con federation we think Governor Chamberlain may spare himself the trouble of meddling with a matter which does not come within the range of his official duty. The St. John Evening Globe says: Governor Chamberlain of Maine seems to think that the confederation of these Prov inces will be some disadvantage to the United States, anil therefore, in his message to the Maine Legislature the other day, he suggests that the Legislature should take Suino steps to i secure the “potent dissuasion of the United htates from carrying confederation into effect. .1 lu ,Eug.l“nd just at this moment such a thil JVhe U,lit<”1 ^08 that there is very little doubt that intervention on the part oi that country would have mi eh in fluence to put a stop to the. confederation .Vlnzziiii iiml Rome. The venerable Italian patriot, Martini, lias I just issued a stirring proclamation to the Ho- j mail people in which he advises the Eternal City not tocontaminate herself by annexation i to a monarchy, but “to shine for a while alone, i a Beacon of Truth anil Progress to the expect ant and uncertain populations of Italy,’’ uu- j til the time when a republican form of govern- , ment shall complete the “moral unity” of It aly. The friends of Martini in Rome aro nu- , merons—more numerous, probably, than in any other of the large cities of Italy. But it is not j likely that in this question they will accept the advice of their revered leader. When the 1 time for taking a plebiscite shall arrive, Rome will follow the example of Venetia, and by an almost unanimous vote demand to become part j of Italy. The conviction that the external na tional unity must be completed before any fur ther political progress can be permanently se cured, is too strong in Italy to allow of any ten dencies involving a continuance of political disunion. No More Fire-Crackcrs.—The new Sen- : ate tariff bill contains a clause forbidding the 1 importation of fire-crackers. The prohibition was inserted by Mr. Fessenden, the great fire in this city, caused by one of these wretched playthings furnishing the argument for its in Itertion. ' COll TLA ND A ND VICINITY.

A meeting of the merchants and capitalists of this city was held yesterday afternoon, at the Merchants’ Exchange, for the purpose of considering the matter of increased accommo dations, and better facilities for communication with the Lakes and the Great West. Not withstanding the brief notice given, the meet ing was largely attended. It was called to or der by Jonas H. Parley, Esq., on whose mo tion Ex-Governor Washburn was called to preside. Gov. Washburn stated the object of the meet ing, which was to consider the project of some more feasible route and shorter transit to the great V est, and which would also opcu to Port land increased business. A railroad line is in operation from Ogdensburg to Montpelier, Vermont, and a charter has been secured for a line from Montpelier to Dalton, N. H. By the building of about eighty miles of road to con nect at Dalton, Portland will have a direct route to the great West, and will draw to this city a vast amount of trade, which is now di verted to Boston. Northern Vermont is extremely desirous of being connected with tho seaboard, and Port land is some sixty miles nearer than Boston; therefore they were desirous of making this port their outlet to the Atlantic. It w as a matter of great importance, not only to the merchants of this city, but also to the commercial and agricultural interests of the whole State. ’1’. 0. Hersey, Esq., made some inquiry as to tho plan, &c., of the projected route, Henry A. Jones,Esq., explained the contem plated project, which was to start from some point on the Portland & Rochester Railroad at Saco River, running up through Fryeburg to couuect with the road at Dalton, N. H. The present object was to obtain a charter from the Legislature. Hon. John B. Brown thought tho project a fi ,-slide oue, hut questioned w'hether arrange ments could not be made with the Grand Trunk road to branch oft at Gorham and connect at Dalton, thus making a direct and short route to Ogdensburg at less expense and witli much loss read to build. He would not say that such a route was more feasible than one to connect at Saco river with the Portland & Rochester road. It was certainly desirable tliat an ave nue should he upeued to the great West, either by way of the Atlautie & St. Lawreuce or the Portland & Rochester road, and if no arrange ment could he made with them, by an inde pendent route. Some remarks were made by Colonel C. Q. Clapp in relation to the Portland & Rochester road. He said if a connection should be made with the Grand Trunk road, it would require a change of gauge. He contended that the short est route to Montpelier would be via tho Port land & Rochester railroad, connecting at Roch ester with another road, making the distance 180 miles. The following resolutions were offered by Mr. Jones, and after some remarks in favor of them by Mr. Hersey, Hou. J. B. Brown and others, were adopted: Wlicreus, The mateiial interests ol this citv in common with those of tho Slate nt large, woulci be greatly promoted by the construction of a railroad in Montpelior, In the state of Vermont to Portland (lor more than one-third of which provision has already been made) securing, as it would, a continuous line of railway communication between tho latter city and Ogdensburg, N. Y., thereby making the distance by railway between the navigable waters of tho West ami tho ocean less by more than fifty miles than by any other route within the United States, therefore, Iltsoiced, That the citizens of Portland, especially its business men and holders of real estate, will give to tho movement which is being inaugurated to ac complish this most important work, their hearty sym pathy and co-operation; Voted—That the President and Secretary of the Board of T rade, together with tho Senator and Repre sentatives tVom Portland, be a committee to procure at the present session ofthe Legislature, the passage of an act to incorporate a company to build a railroad from Portland to the Western line of the State, to be there connected with a railroad from the West. Voted—That a committee of-be raised by this meeting to eonter with the Directors ot tho seve ral railroads in Maine, and with the friends of this enterprise in other Suites, with a i lew to secure their early and efficient co-opcration In organizing and car rying it forward. It waa voted that the matter of raising the committee mentioned above be left with the Board of Trade, at their meeting to be held in the evening. ^ w wt'ii uv coo proceedings oi tue Board of Trade at their annual meeting held last evening, that a strong and efficient com - mittee, at the head ol' which is Ex-Gov. Wash burn, has been appointed agreeably to the last vote passed. This committee will give the mat ter that immediate consideration it deserves. There was but one opinion among our business men who were present at the meeting ;%nd no project has ever been presented since that of the Atlantic & St. Lawrence Railroad, which met with such universal favor. In the Board of Trade last evening, the same feeling was manifested that was displayed in the afternoon. Our merchants have only to show their accus tomed energy to secure this great business route. Gov. Washburn introduced to the meeting Mr. Hamilton and Mr. Dustan, the former of whom made some statements relative to the Dexter & Newport Railroad, and it was voted to lefer tho matter to the Board of Trade. The meeting then adjourned. New Jerusauem Church.—Rev. W. B. Hayden delivered the first of a series of ser mons on the peculiar doctrines of this church, last Sabbath evening, in Park street church, before a large and interested audience. Like all the public efforts of this able divine, it was a scholarly and strong discourse, and in many of its passages very eloquent. He held his au dience in the closest attention to tha end. His discourse next Sunday evening will he the ‘Resurrection, and the life, society, scenery and inhabitants of the spiritual world.” It cannot fail to be deeply interesting to all in quiring minds, whatever may be their theolog ical views. This society, notwithstanding their heavy losses by the fire, have held their meetings reg ularly, sustained their Sunday schools in as nourishing a condition as ever, provided the means for the support of their pastor, had larger congregations than ever before, and kept up all over their meetings and services as though no disaster had ever touched them. We understand that they have a building committee chosen, who purpose to begin work on their new Temple,on High street, in the spring. Nearly $3000 have been generously contributed towards this end by the Swedcu borgians abroad; oi which $1000 was given by the Chicago New Church Society. And con tributions still continue to arrive. Premiums.—The following premiums are of. fered to the writing class of the Portland Busi ness College. To the one making tho most im provement within one mouth,a beautiful speci men of pen work, executed by tlm Teacher of Penmanship, H. W. Sliaylor; to the second best a photograph of a piece of pen work, in the center ol whieli is St. George and the Dragon, surrounded by a wreath in which are neatly inserted photographs of the Teachers in the College. Also similar premiums to the ones producing the best written and arranged Busi ness Letter. All those wishing to compete for the above prizes would do well to join the class immediately. The Advertiser is prospering under Mr. McGregor’s care, and promises to lesuine its daily issuo at an early date. In his last num ber ho announces that he has purchased a new (out of typo from Rogers’ celebrated Boston foundry, and is expecting one of Hoe’s large cylinder presses. Correspondence from Wash ington, New York and Boston, will add to the interest of the paper, and an editress baa been engaged in Massachusetts. The Sunday Ad vertiser is a well filled sheet of the size of the i rcss, and has been very favorably received. A Token op Respect.—Mr. A. D. Smith, foreman for Messrs. T. &B. Cummings, was prist n on briilay last, by the workmen in the same employ, with a valuable watch and chain, from tho establishment of Mr A Dun yon, as a taken of their confidence and esteem The watch am. chain were presented by Mr. J C Ware, with some very approp iate temarks, anil Mr. Smith, who was taken entirely by sur prise, briefly responded, thanking his associates for this exhibition of their respect.

The records of the late meetings of the Board of Managers were read. A communication from the Albany Board of Trade concerning the sale of grains by the cental or 100 lbs., instead of by the bushel, was read, and it was voted to concur with other Boards of Trade in the matter, carrying the system into effect on the first of March. Communication from Hon. J. H. Drummond in relation to the Dexter & Newport Itailroad was ordered to be placed on file. The Vice President stated that the commit tee on procuring a suitable place for the meet ings ot the Board reported in favor of leasing the rooms over, the International Telegraph Office, on the corner of Fore aud Exchange streets. The report was accepted, and the com mittee were instructed to lease the rooms for one year. C. H. Haskell, Esq., Treasurer of the Board, presented his annual report, from which it ap l»ears that the receipts during the year were $2,962.32, as follows: au;ncnnuons to MercnantB Exchange,.*1,807 00 Interest, . 65 32 Dirigo Insurance Co.,. 600 00 $2,362 32 The total expenses were,. 1,884 50 Balance in Treasury.$ 477 82 The balance on hand at the commencement of the year was $2,087.66 which, with the bal ance of the past year leaves in the Treasury $2,587.38, of which, $1000 is in Government bonds and $829.40 is deposited with the Port land Savings Bank to tho credit of the Board. The report was accepted and ordered to be placed on hie. Mr. M. N. Rich, Secretary, presented his an nual report. He estimates the losses of the Board by the great fire at $1,364.78, on which there was insurance in the Dirigo office for $1,000 on which fifty per cent, has been receiv ed, making a loss to the Board of $804.78. All ol the records of the Board were lost. Capt. Charles Chase submitted the annual report of the Port Wardens, from which it ap peared that they had examined the cargoes of 130 sailing vessels from foreign ports, 12 coast wise cargoes, 23 cargoes of steamers from Liv erpool, 3 Irorn Glasgow and 94 from New York. The report was placed on file, The following resolutions offered by Mr. C.E. Jose were unanimously adopted.and £Mr. Jose was appointed the committee mentioned in the first resolution: Whereas, In the opinion of this Board, the laws of this State for the collection of debts, works injurious ly for both debtors and creditors, in cases of insol vency—it is, therefore, Hesotved, That a committee be appointed to circu late a petition tor the signatures oi our citizens, ask tug tiie Legislature to enuet u law similar to the in solvency law of Massachusetts, and that the same ho lorwarded by the President of this Board to our Rep resentatives. littolved, That tho President be authorized to pre pare a hill, and, il necessary, to make a special eflort in presenting the matter to the Legislature.

Chadbourn & Ken dall, as will be noticed by tbeir advertisement throw open to-day their new store No. 3, Free street block. It is a magnificent establish ment for their business—that of woolens and gentlemen’s furnishing goods. In fitting it up no pains or expense have been spared and the interior fixings are composed of chestnut, wal nut and oak woods, while plate glass has been unsparingly used for the doors and windows.— All the interior arrangements have been made for ohe convenience and comfort of customers as well as occupants, and all the latest improve ments have been adopted. They are now opening a rich assortment of woolen and furnishing goods, and are not j cramped for space to display them to custom ers. It is worthy of a vsit to this establish ment to see how handsomely and conveniently it is fitted up. Though burned out at the great fire they did not lose their courage and here is the result of their energy. Portland Gas Company.—Among other in terests which suffered severely by the fire of July last, this company was, as is well known, a loser to a considerable extent. By the en cr(jy> however, of the Superintendent, and other officers, the inconvenience was soon remedied, so far as the public accommodation was concerned. At the semi-annual meeting of the Directors on Saturday last, we are glad to hear that the financial affairs of the com pany were found to be getting back to their normal condition, and they were enabled to declare a dividend of three dollars on a share from the earnings of the last twelve months, which is doing pretty well under the disas trous condition in which they came out of the fire. In another column will bo seen the card of Dr. Win. H. Sweet, the groat natural bone set ter, who is one of the celebrated family that have achieved a world wido reputation, having j had patients from all parts of the country, Eu rope and South America. Their practice has been extensive, and some of the most difficult cases have been cured by them. Our readers are referred to our townsman, Geo. M. Elder, Esq., who was formerly one of his patients, and is abundantly satisfied with his skillful treat ment, having been cured after the case had been pronounced hopeless by the most skillful physicians. The Seventeenth Maine Regiment Associa tion are to give a grand Military and Civic Ball, at Mechanics’ Hall on next Tuesday evening. The success of their last promenade concert convinces us that this will also be a brilliant affair. The announcement will appear to-mor row, and meanwhile we advise all our ex-olll cers and citizens to make their arrangements to be preseut. Dry Goods. — Attention is invited to the great sale of dry goods at auction by Messrs. E. M. Patten & Co., which commences at their rooms on Plum Street this afternoon. An op portunity will be afforded this forenoon for ex amining the stock, which iB a very large and choice one. The products of Messrs. Leath & Gore’s fac tory, the steam refined soap, in their several varieties, are receiving the endorsement of ex tensive sale, and the commendation of all buy ers and consumers. In moderateness of price and efficiency of action, they lead the van guard of the great army of hard soaps. Accident.—A little son of Mr. Rufus D. Bean, met with a sad accident whilo sliding down hill last Saturday. He was very serious ly injured internally it is supposed. Boys must be very careful in coasting, or some fata! acci dent may occur. Bah Meeting.—The members of the Cum berland Bar are requested to meet at the Court Room on Chestnut Street, at 4 o’clock this af ternoon, BiSwcll & Browne's Theatre. SIr. Editor,—When a theatrical corps come among us anti establish themselves here and carefully adopt a high standard, playing trage dies, comedies and farces of unassailable worthiness, with “excelsior” on their banner, we think the public should give them all possi ble encouragement, that they may have sub stantial evidence that their efforts are appre ciated. Such a company is now at Deering Hall.— We write this without solicitation, as an ex pression of sincere appreciation of the endeav ors of Bidwell and Browne’s Dramatic Com pany to afford a desirable place of entertain ment. During the past month, there has been brought out here such standard attractions as “Macbeth,” “Richelieu,” “Jack Cade,” &c., with Joseph Proctor, the eminent tragedian, as star, and within the past week such plays as “Kell Gwynn,” “Belle of the Season,” “Hunchback,” “Lucretia Borgia," ‘Griffith Gaunt,” &c., with Miss Rachel Johnson and Mr. B. Macauley of Hew York as stars. Mr. Proctor is well known as one of the fin est actors on the American stage. Miss John son is a young lady, a Boston girl, of rare tal ent and ability, a few years since a pupil of Wyzeman Marshall; and if she improves as much in the future as she has since her debut at the “Hub,” which we well remember, she will take a front rank among the best of the profession in this country. Her acting is very easy and natural, full of life, buoyancy and esprit. Her articulation in every part is dis tinct, clear and pleasing, and the tone of her voice is finely adapted to the successful rendi tion of the characters she assumes. Sho is ambitious withal, and hence gives every part she takes all the energy and care possible. Of course she has much to learn in the profession, but what we desire to say is, that few actresses possess her rare qualities, and with proper use uuu nibu U1SUUU1UUUUI1 1U lUU CIiOICO OI Her plays, (choosing the wheat and letting the chaff go by,) she will ere long be found among the leading stars of the country. The plays which have been presented the past week, and which are in preparation, are among the best, and we are glad to know the theatre has been filled with large and appre ciative audiences. The last sensation, “Griffith Gaunt,” drama tized from Charles Keade’s novel by Augustus Daly of New York, was presented last week, and proved a great card. The play is better than the book, the worst features being left out and many extra attractions inserted, making the piece one of the best presented lor many a day. The introduction of the Lancashire Fair by Mr. Daly is one of the best hits of the day. Miss Johnson played Kate Peyton charming ly, and Mr. Macauley’s “Griffith Gaunt” was one of the best things of the season. Sev eral members of the stock company were well up in their parts, and appeared to fine ad vantage. The :new historic play—Matilda Heron’s “Leshia, or the Spy of Venice," is now being given, and we advise all to seo it. Tbe promi nent position that Venice so recently occupied in the war betweon Prussia and Italy against Austria, and the terrible record of the Catho lic inquisition, render this play a great attrac tion. Miss Heron has taken a special interest in Miss Johnson, and has entrusted her with the rendition of the character of “Leshia,” considering her one of the most promising act resses on the American stage. From Miss Heron’s classic taste and high idea of the pro fession, her interest in Miss Johnson speaks volumes in her favor. “Romeo and Juliet,” “Lady Audley's Secret,” and “Love Cha3e,” are also announced for this week—the last of Miss Johnson’s stay. Mr. Macauley, who sup ports her in leading characters, plays with groat taste and talent. Miss Dollie Bidwell is a leading actress, and always does well. Such actors as Bidwell, Browne, Wilson, Clarke &c.> are valuable members of the profession. Miss D. P. Ingersoll is also an excellent actress, often playing difficult parts with great accept ance.

Dr. Tefl't of this city delivered his lecture upon “How to make the most of Maine” before the M. E. Society of Gould’s Academy, Bethel on Thursday evening last. It was received with marked attention and evidently made a strong impression upon the audience. The lec ture is a tine one, and should be beard by all who are apt to grow discontented with our rough soil and inclement skies. Our corres pondent wishes it could he delivered in every town iu the State. —The Eastport Sentinel says quite an ex tensive business is being done this winter by the fishermen iu the waters in that vicinity in catching herrings with set nets, freezing them and selling them to parties who are there with vessels for the purposo of purchasing them. The price paid is sixty-five cents per hundred fish. The fishermen make good wa ges. —Tho logging teams now engaged iu hauling logs into the Eust Machias and Machias rivers, employ some fifteen hundrod men and eight hundred oxen and horses, not taking into ac count men and horses in trucking hay and provisions to the camp, as we learn from the Machias Republican. —The Machias Republican says the lath mills in that town will bo kept running during the winter. Quito a number of teams aro em ployed in hauling small logs to tho mills, which are cut up into four feet lengths, and manufac tured into laths. A cord of this wood will make about 4,000 laths. —The Ellsworth American says that two daughters of J. H. Chamberlain, Esq., of that village came near losing their lives by suffoca tion on Saturday night last, from the eff ect oj coal gas. The damper iu tho stove pipe got turned, probably from the draft of wind, and the gas escaped into the hall and thence into the sleeping room of the young ladies, their door being left open. One of tho sleepers awoke, vomiting badly, but rushed into the room of her parents, awakening them. The other had to be aroused, her pulse being as low as 40. The doctor was called, and he said that in a few hours their lives would have been extinct. —Liscomb and Campbell, killed at New Ulm Minnesota, recently, as mentioned by tele graph, were members of the 2d Minnesota regi ment, instead of the 2d Maine, as stated.

We confess to havo been quite tillable to read this book to the end. A very few chap ters are all we have found our courage equal to. It is a very silly book. The author remarks in her preface that “the North” will probably regard its pictures as “overdrawn.” We fliink there is very little likelihood of “the North,” or any considerable portion of it, troubling it self with anything so feeble. The story is pro fessedly written from the Southern standpoint, and claims to present a truthful representa tion of the lives, the characters and the senti ments of the people of that part of the United States. We should he sorry to think it did so. We prefer to believe that the majority in that section are not so lost in the night of planta tion ignorance as to suppose with this writer that all the honor, virtue, intelligence and cul ture of tho country are comprised within the limits of the late Confederacy, and that the brutality, the mealiness, the dishonesty, and all other vices, are monopolized by what Hhe calls the \ ankees. She has given us only one instance in her whole book ol a bad Southern er, and that one put the climax to a dreadful career of crime by joining the Union army!— The domestic portion of the story is not ill conceived, and has some interest.

A Compromise.—We learn from the New Hampshire Statesman that the liquor dealers of Laconia, iu that State, have agroed to aban don the traffic, and sell only ale and cider; the apothecaries will sell for nothing but medicin al and mechanical purposes, and the hotels on ly totraveling guests, and keep no open bar.-* This arrangement was brought about by a com mittee of citizens, and went into effect on the first ot January. If the agreement is violated the latv will be rigidly enforced. ACcitious Will.—A Montpelier (Vermont) paper says that a former who recently died in that neig hborhood, disposed of all his property (about $(1000 after paying debts) by giving it to his wife for life, if she shall remain unmarri ed, and after her death the whole to be expend ed in erectin'; a monument; but if the wife shall marry she is to receive $2000, and the re

maining sum of $4000 is to be expended upon the monument; and, in erecting it, the execu tor is required to take good advice and expend the money judiciously and economically. The deceased has no children. —It requires in New Jersey five years’deser tion of a wife, on the part of the husband to en title the lady to a divorce. SPECIAL NOTICES. Professional Card. Or. WB, II.
