Conjugal Harmony. St. Paul w-as net a married man, nor docs it appear by hie writings on the subject, that he had a very exalted opinion of matrimony— though, in the expression of his opinion, ho frankly confessed that lie spoke by permission and not by commandment, lie had, howev er, seen enough of the happy fruits of the con jugal relation to perceive that “lie who is mar; j lied carotli’how he may please his wife,” an J “she that is married careth how she may please i her husband.” This is not tire case with all husbands and wives; for even husbands am wives are sometimes only such in law , tea y, they never were “married’'—that is, their at lecttous were never heartily blended-tliey have not become “like kindred drops mingled into one.” Mine accidental circumstance, or some ba=ty passion had brought them to the j altar- where they pledged a love they never rei.iy felt; and such unmarried husbands and j wives too oaen spend their day, not in caring how they may please each other, hut in taking a course quite opposite to this. A miserable pc-iicy, truly! when every degree ot injury you inflict upon the other is but bringing' trouble on j our own head. No lelation of life requires greater forbearance and tenderness than that of husband and wife. Love fs a delicate plant that must be nursed with constant care. The storms of angry passion ate sure to blight and de-ltcy it. Where the effort to please is a mutual and earnest one, there is little danger of any serious interruption of domestic happi ness; but where no such ctiort is made, it is almost impossible to preserve mutual respect and confidence. Mr, A. is naturally a nervous man, easily ir ritated. lie received in early life a pretty lib eral education, and has always had a fondness for bool;3 and literary matters in genera). Having moved from childhood in what is call ed "good society,” he has an opinion of him self sufficiently exalted, and may be—though unconsciously, somewhat aristocratic in his feelings and manners. His wife, on the con trary, was brougat up iir a very democratic way. Her opportunities tor learning in youth were small, arid the height of her ambition was not to digest Euclid or to road Locke, but to keep the iiouse in order, cook well, and mend the clothes to the best advantage. In this she is ns proficient as is her husband in the sciences of Phrenology and Animal Mag netism. When Mr. A. addresses her, he first pauses to consider tho structure of tire senten ces he is about to pronounce; every thing is done by rule—the words are measured and made grammatically correct hr every particu lar. It his wile’s reply is not equally precise and grammatical he begins to criticise her language and to reprove her for ignorance. This she takes as evidence that he considers himself her superior, and being determined by the democratic principles of her youth, to strike far the right of equality, (sometimes she is tempted to do this with the broomstick,) she knows no other or better way to maintain her end of the yoke but by a tirade oi low and vulgar brawling. Tuis irritates her nervous husband the more to see such gross ignorance in lus wife, and he begins to read a homily of Traill by book. He cannot proceed far, how ever in his discourse before his inflamed spouse drowns out his speech by a louder r.rtempi y a tccu3 performance; and if, Iftlore they get t.irough, shouldei-s are not shaken and hair is not pulled, the children present are lucky by not sabering from such an example—that’s all. All these and other similar evils might lie avoided or cured, if every husband would try to -‘please hts wite,” f. e., when he can do bo without too 2;reat & lax upon his purse to the goddess Fashion; and if every wife in turn would strive to “please her husband,” when ever she can do so without feeling that super cilious self-esteem which provokes his notions of superioi ily. In the man iage relation there can be no liberty without equality; and that equality Is to he secured only by an allowance of each other’s appropriate rights, and a cor responding delicacy in the exercise of them.— liy concesnoD and tenderness many a mar riage originally unequal, might be made on tho who.c a pleasant and a happy one. Tr.axt. “Tts IVow Crnut<lr» in ITak, Haler this heading the Great Salt Lake City Vedette (“ Gcntiio " journal) says: “ The universal topic of conversation on the street yesterday, was the violent character of the harangues on Sunday last at the Taberna cle uu i in the evening ward mootings. We are told that. universal and bitter onslaught was made o.i the Gentile population. The congre gations were counselled by the teachers to Vilii.iuld their patronage fr-in tiiose * enemies of tne people* tno Gentiles, and warned against dealing with outside merchants." The Vedette adds that this sort of talk is by no means now, but that tho fervor of it has of lato redoubled. The resident Gentiles have “no doubt that tho ‘teachers* have been in structed to cliurgo their flocks on this subject and that dealing with Gentiles supposed to bci inimical to the church leaders, is to be a uni versal tost of fellowship throughout the terri tory.” And yet, in the lace of these teach ings and warnings, their press proclaims that tho “ hospitality of the Jlormons knows no bounds.” A very plausible explanation of this incrers ed hostility is given: “Perhaps it is a necessity of tbe situation, for, as was remarked by oiie preacher the otii- ! or night, the people are becoming lukewarm in their faith: they fail to pay their tithing as ! of yoie, and, in consequence, the church treas ury is depleted.” Tho Vedette tViiuks, however, that “ the peopla aio strongly inclined to dual witli those who may give th in tho best bargains,” and Buspccts that “ notwithstanding the teachings and counsel and warnings of the bishops, back.l up by their press, tho Gentile mer chants will not be starved out just now.” Wns-T WILL SHE co?—At the college of Franco, among tlio lecturers, Ai.

The storm of Thursday is acknowledged by | every one to be tbo most severe that has been j experionccd iu ibis city. Not from tbo quan tity of snow falling, for wo have had more snow several times within fifteen years past than fell on Thursday, but never have we experienced such a terrific gale during a snow storm as that on the afternoon and evening of that day.— People became so exhausted in endeavoring to roach their homes that they were obliged to seek shelter at the hotels and with friends. Many were so bewildered and blinded by the storm that., but for assistance, they could never have reached their homes. The police assisted maoy in this condition, and proved themselves ministering angels to tho over-powered and fatigued ones who were ready to give up in dispair. One of the policemen started from the sta tion, Thursday evening, for his home in North street. Ho got lost in the burnt district, but managed, with some difficulty, to find liis way | to a point where he knew where he was. He | immediately retraced his steps to the station house and remained there all night. Mr. James H. Harmon left tho Argus office to go home, but got so bewildered and chilled that he was obliged to bring up at the United ; States Hotel. un commercial street ttic ponce found a man who had started out from his house on York street, after a pail of water. Ho got so blinded and bewildered by the storm that he lost his way, and had he not bceu discovered by the police must have perished. On Munjoy a woman was found in a snow drift, crying for help. She had been out wag ing, and had lost her way in going homo. Mr. Allison, of the Grand Trunk depot, on his way home got so completely blinded that he lost his way and fell into a.well. Fortunately, by spreading his arms ho caught himself just as he was touching tho water, and soon emerg ed from his unpleasant situation. A woman was found wandering about in the snow on Portland street, in an almost exhaust ed condition; sbo was comfortably cared for by the finder, with the assistance of somo neigh bors. On Danforih 6treet a man waspicked up who had lost hit way. He started from Fore street to go to Brown street. When discovered ho was about laying bimself down in the snow so thoroughly exhausted was he. Had he not been thus timely discovered a few moments would have closed his existence. We have heard of many other cases, but can not vouch for their correctness. It was reported yesterday that a maa had been discovered, frozen to death, hut we could find no authority for tho statement. As to the datnago done to property we have not heard of any great amount. Several chim nios were lijown down in various parts of the city. A portion of the roof of tho store of Messrs. Yeaton 8i Hale, Moulton Block, Com mercial street, was stripped off, as if it had been so much paper. Some damage was also done to slated roots by stripping oil the slates. Ou the roof of his new storo on Exchange street Mr. C II' Farley had erected a telescope stand, embedded in cement. It was a small iron frame, and as securely fastened as could be possible. Such was the force of the wind that it was blown out of the cement and from the roof. TnE RAILROADS. The Portland and Rochester was the first to get their track cleared, and trains ran in and out yesterday forenoon. On the Grand Trunk Road the morning train i from Paris got oft the track at Falmouth, in consequence of the breaking of an axle of the ! tender. The engine and teuder were somewhat ' damaged, and the cars slightly. The train from Montreal and Island Pond ! duo at two o’clock P. M., arrived at 5.30. The ; regular train out left at three o'clock P. M.— The track Is now clear. On the Maine Central, the train which left here for Bangor at 1.10 P. M., Thursday, did not arrive at that place until 12 o’clock, Friday noon. A r turn train left Bangor at 1.3Q yes terday afternoon with two engines and a snow plow. At Newport the tram ran oft the track smashing one of the engines and the snow plow. Mr. Noyes, the efficient superintendent of the Maine Central made up an extra train, which left TVatervilie at 12.10 yesterday, arriv ing hero at 5 o’clock. The regular train for Bangor left hero yesterday at three o’clock, in the afternoon. On tlie Portland and Kennebec road the train that left Augusta yesterday for this city j got 6tuek between Freeport and Yarmouth. It") arrived at the latter place about seven o’clock last evening, and Mr. Hatch the Superinten dent telegrupded for it to rotnain there until the outward train should pass. The first train lor two days, for Augusta, started about seven o’clock last evening. uu tho liostou road, Mr. Chase early yester- | day morning dispatohed four engines with 1 snow plows to clear the track. They arrived ] at Saco about one o’clock, and the train which | left Boston Thursday morning for this city and | which had remaintd at Saco ail night started j to come in. It arrived here at three o’clock in the afternoon. No train was dispatched from this city for Boston yesterday. The train that left Boston Thursday morning for this city arrived at Portsmouth soon alter a>ven o’clock P. M., and arrived here about 11 o’clock last night. The track ol the horse cars in the city was so completely blocked that no trains ran yes frdav. Occasional trips wore made by the Westbrook cars. On Commorcinl street. Mr. Latham, Super intendent of the Grand Trunk Koad had a gang of men shoveling the snow from the I track. Snow ploughs would have been of no advantage whatever, as the wind would have blown it in behind the plow almost ns fast as the plow could take it out. Tue amount oi snow fallen is estimated at {com fifteen to twenty inches; but it is curi ously piled—as for instance, in some places on Commercial street the South side of the track is about hare while ou the North side of the track tho drifts are from two to six feet deep.— The same, is the case in many of the streets and it will require some labor so to distribute the snow as to make good sleighing. The Blue hiar* Me. Editor:—Having seen these words in your paper in connection with a meeting of tho Hoard of Trade, it occurred to me that some of your readers might bo interested to know more definitely what they mean. It is well known that the difficulty, risk, ex pense and time of carrying heavy freight long dtstances overland, depend upon the number of times it has to be unloaded and reloaded, in passing from one railroad to another. It is in this respect that the Gaand Trunk Eaiiway Company have had great advantage over all competing lines from the West. Cars loaded at Sarnia, are brought through to Portland; while on the more Southern routes, ferries and changes of guage, have rendered several changes of cars necessary. To obviate these difficulties several railroaj companies, owning lines connected, and ex tending from Boston to St. Louis, have com bined for the mrough freighting business. The construction of the railroad bridge across the Hudson, at Albany, had removed one obsta cle to such a scheme. The fact that tho Great Western Eailroad, from the Suspension Bridge to Detroit, was a broad gauge road, presented a serious difficulty. But this was obviated by laying a third rail the whole distance, at the joint expense of all companies interested. The ferrj across the Detroit river had always rendered a change of cars necessary there; hut the Great Western Eailroad Company have constructed a large steamer, at an expense of ever two hundred thousand dollars, which now takes freight trains across as they come to either side. So that cars loaded at St. Louis, or Chicago, are now brought through to New York and Boston, without breaking bulk,— thus saving much in time and expense, and in risk of injury or loss. Tho Companies that have entered into this explanation own over twelve thousand freight cars. But as these are lar gely used in the local and way business, they have begun to make five thousand more, for the through or general business. TUeso are all to be painted blue; houce the combination is called the "Blue Line." Tho general business has alnady been commenced; and tho blue cars are now seen daily ou the various roads, from the Missis sippi Eiver to tho Atlantic coast. There is no reason why the same cars may noi be brought to Portland, and thus save our merchants from being dependent upon tlio Giand Trunk Kailway Company. The rates may be a little higher; hut if so, this will ho more than compensated liy avoiding the risk of losses by delay. All that is necessary in order to extend the Blue Line to Portland, is for the Boston & Maino Eailroad Company to enter into an arrangement for that purposo.— And as one purpose of the combination was to compete with the Grand Trunk Eailroad Corn I panv, there eau bo little doubt that favorable | rates to Portland would be conceded. D. New Furniture and Crockery Wake Store.—In our advertising columns will be found tho notices of Messrs. Evans & Bailey, who havo taken tho now and spacious stores Nos. X and 2 Free Street Block, which they have tully stocked with furniture and crock I ery ware of every description. We have visit 1 ed the establishment, and find it a first class i concern. Tho basement is used for rooeiving and opening packages. The first floor is de votod to the sale of crockery, glass, silver and plated ware. The second story exhibits some of the most splendid specimens of furniture that can be found in tho city. The third story is devoted to more plain hut substan tial furniture, and the louvth story is the de partment where tho articles are finished and put together, Messrs. E. & B. purchasing them in tho rough state, and doing their own fin ishing, both of them being practical furniture manufacturers, it is a we 11 appointed estab lishment, and the fitting up is in every res pect what it ought to be, while the large dis play of goods must conviuce every ono that j these gentlemen know their business. It is 1 their intention to sell at the lowest Boston | prices, and the people of this State will find it to their advantage to pay a visit to our Portland establishments before going to Bos ton or New York. Our fellow citizen Mr, John Crockett can he found hero, ready and willing to show people everything the establishment contains, from I the plainest to the most elaborate styles of | furniture and crockery waro.

Heald.—We are pained in announcing the death of Mrs. Heaid, wild of our City Marshal, which occurred Thursday evening. She was a native of Belfast, and had been married about two years and a half. Not withstanding she came here almost as a stran ger, by her gentle and lady-liko deportment, she soon gathered around her a large circle of friends, who will mourn her early decease, and mingle their sympathies with her sorrowing husband. Sbo leaves an infant daughter three "r four weeks old. Tbo funoral of Mrs. Heald will take place on Sunday afternoon. Naeeow Escape eeosi Fiee. — Thursday evening a young lady attempted to fill a burn ing lamp with patent oil, in tho liouso on the corner of Portland & Hanover streots. The lamp exploded setting fire to the oil in the can, on the table. She bad presence of mind enough to throw the can from her and to give an alarm which brought in other occupants ol tho house. Tho carpet, floor and table were on fire but the flames were quickly and quietly quenched by throwing a bucket of water and somo snow upon them Tho young lady was slightly burned in the face.

Correction.—The train from Augusta, on Thursday, was only twenty minutes behind time, and that was occasioned by waiting to hear from Portland.

Trice, in paper covers, fifty cents; sold at ail the bookstores. Extortion by Hack mss,—A friend who lately visited New York writes us that he read in one of the city papers that the extortion practiced by liackmeii ttiere was such that “no man ,ca^s a carriage without having first re solved upon lighting or being robbed.” But having a lady with him, he took a carriage at the depot, and -the following was his experi ence : Upon reaching the hotel he alighted and asked the price for the service. “Five dollars,” said Jehu. Handing him a five dollar greenback, the gentleman inquired quietly: “What is your Number? “Four dollars,” he answered gruffly. ber7y»»ere are ^our dollars. AY’hat is your num uS*ree dollars,” said the fellow sulkily. .£ircre arJ three. Now, your number, sir?” diiv'T° ao"ar3—httle 'nun, too,” rejoined the “Two, then; here they are. AYhatisyour number?” “One dollar, Cap’n—one dollar’il do—” re plied whip. “Here is your dollar,’, said our friend, civilly all you are entitled to. It’s no consequence 05 to 5 our number now. Good morning.’1— And the parties separated without either fight or roboery. Tius Turkish Government and the Le vant Herald.—The Tribune’s Constantino ple’s correspondent says: You remember that some time ago the Le vant Herald, an English newspaper here, was fined for publishing false news and defaming the Turkish Generals in Crete. The Greeks here responded to this condemnation by adding ■00 new subscribers to the subscription at a pound and a half each. Good for the Greeks! The Levant Heraldis the only paper here which has dared to tell the truth about Crete, and the Turks are furious about it. 'But John Bull is not only pocketing £450 from the Greeks as a result of tnis prosecution, hut he has re fused to pay the fine of £50 to the Turks, on the ground that the prosecution was not con ducted in accordance with the laws of the press. As be is an Enghshman.the fine can be collected only through the English Em bassy. So, of course, this will be the judge of the justice oi his plea. He is unquestion ably right in it, and the Turks will have noth ing to do but to bite their tongues, and if they think it wise, prosecute him anew. But this they can hardly do, because time lias proved to the world that their own reports were false, and not those of the Levant Herald. So much for an attompt to muzzle Johu Bull. The Italian Bishops.—The unfrocking of the political bishops by the Italian government is one of the grievances that the papal author ities have bitterly complained of, and under certain conditions they havo been reinstated over their dioceses. Certain bishops who rc tirsd to Home addressed a letter to the presi dent of the Italian Council to know if they could likewise regain their scats. The noble reply of JI. Kicasoli to this appeal has attracted much attention in Paris, and to Americans this document has a special interest. Tfie elo quent water calls attention to tlic free discus sion of religious doctrines as enjoyed in Amer ica, and declares to the bishops that the Italian government wisli with themselves soon to see the same liberty permeating Italy. Hritifth Colonial Itcma. —The Uniou of the two colonies of Vancou ver Island and British Columbia has, since its consummation, produced nothing but discon tent and complainings. No sooner did tho lar ger colony on tho main land got the power into her hands than she commenced to lord it with a high hand over the weaker colony of Vancouver Island, which had trustingly sur rendered its independence to her. Double port charges were at ouco levied on goods landed at Victoria, which wc believe had hitherto been a free port. Of course this gave great dissatisfac tion, and the government, it is said, were think ing about relinquishing a portion of tho funds thus collected, fearing a rupturo of some kind. Even the newspapers that supported the union scheme are grumbling omiuously, and just now begin to see clearly that British Columl^ was a reckless, extravagant Colony which Vancou ver Island should not have united her fortunes with. The British Columbia authorities ap pear to regard the poor Islanders iu much the same light that a victorious army looks upon a captured city and its inhabitants, as useful only to bo robbed, sacked aud pluudered. The Vic toria Colonist says:— “There are hundreds waiting only to see what turn things will take under the much vaunted Union before leaving to seek their for tunes elsewhere, aud while the country is thus trembling in the balance tho most skillful statesmanship is requisite to avert the “one poor scruple’ that will turn the scale and shake the Colonial edifice to its foundation." —The Montreal Herald saj s: “The commit tee appointed by the Council of the Quebec Board of Trade to enquire into the practicabil ity of the winter navigation of the St. Lawrence have seported the project possible under certain conditions, but under tho mo.t favorable not likely to be profitable. The risks greatly out weigh the advantages. The con mittce find that “no insurance could be effected during the mouths of January and February, and that the premium by steamships sailing early in De cember or iu Match would probably be 5 per cent,*’under such circumstances, of course, trade would he practically impossible. But all the difficulties, they think, will bo met and remov ed by the construction of the Intercolonial Railway. Very likely. In fact, the Committee seem to have had no little trouble iu making up their minds what they should report. First, steamships coustrvcted specially lor the pur pose, might ascend, but then there would he no use in their doing so, because there would be uo cargoes, the Intercolonial would destroy the chances of a profitable tsado by the St. Law rcncer and finally, tho Committee advise the government tj test Ilia matter by- providing a suitable steamer to navigate the Gulf in De cember, March aud April.” —The only organ of public opinion in the Red River Settlement believes that the Colony would prosper better under Confederation as a separato Colony, endowed with all the attri butes of a local government, than if it was an nexed to Canada; and at the same tiino states that a memorial to that effect is now being signed for transmission to the Colonial Office, along with resolutions in favor of Confedera tion. Magazines. Northern Lights.—The third number of this new weekly opens with a poem by Mrs. Howe, entitled “The Eich Man’s Library;’’ “Neighbors’ Wivos" is continued; there is an amusing story entitled “Lot those Laugh who Win,” and a thrilling ono of “A Night in the Sewers;” “Low Life in Now York,” forms the subject of a vivid Eketch, and the very com mon folly of exalting the past at tho expense of the present is cleverly exposed in a spirited essay on “The Proper Eso of Grandfathers.” “Our Contributors’ Club” continues to furnish a record of its doings. There are four illustra tions in tlii8 number, by H. L. Stephens, Ham matt Billings and Aug. Hoppin. The North British Beview for December is received from the Eepublication office of the Leonard Scott Company, 38 Walker street, N. Y.
