The Maine Slate Preu, Published this uioraing, contains abstracts of the reports ot the Superintendent of Com mon Schools, of the Bank Commissioners ami of the officers of the State Prison, full particu lars of the late frightful murder at Auburn, tlie proceedings of the State Legislature and of Congress for the week, a Washington letter from “Spectator,” interesting contributions from “Traxi,” the shipping news of the week, a review of the Portland markets, &c., &c. Samelhiag Done. Little more than half a year has passed since the fire laid waste the busiest part of Portland. Wise heads and grave faces wagged solemnly. Melancholy prophecies were heard. “Thirty years won't make Portland what It was.” “You Mid I won’t live to see the city as we saw it yesterday.” True enough ; but the croakers already see and hear proof ot a new vigor, of dauntless enterprise, and prospect of larger business and a greater prosperity. The “burnt district” is already a thing of the past, vague in boundary, traditional in horror. The 5th of July, 18(10, Is far off, Mr. Gradgrind, a well known practical man and believer in facts, was overheard saying the other day, that It was like magic. Where the black cinders of property smoked, traffic smiles again through plate glass; comfortable homes have grown up, as it were in a night, from the ashes; and the ruins, ghastly and desolate, are extant only in the hands of the photographer. The energy shown in rebuilding the city c»n scarcely be paralleled. No doubt the builders will get their reward in dollars and cents, and no doubt they build and expend, having that reward in view; but yet the handsome blocks in many cases occupying the sites of tumble dowu wooden sheds that fed the fire, cannot be ascribed wholly to bns< ness enterprise, but are in part due to the strong local attraction which obtains in the natives and dwellers of Portland. It was truly the beautiful city. It will still be the beauti ful city. From Eastport to New Oi leans no finer location can be found. What wanderer hence can ever forget these two noble hills with their broad Promenades—the White Hills on the one hand, the Atlantic on the other I It a town oi equal size in the West were equ ally devastated by tire,half the sufferers might depart and establish themselves elsewhere, and ! the rebuilding would be of the cheapest kind; I here nobody goes away, and each builder vies ! with his neighbor in the endeavor to improve the street and the city. We are disposed to blow our trumpet a little louder on account o.' the silence which has been unbroken hitherto. The good work has gone on quietly, swiftly, and with one or two exceptions, thoroughly. Perhaps so little has been said because so much has been done. Nobody thought it worth while to praise or condemn. mose wnose interests were not immediate 'y affected have given only silent approval to the improvements which have been made in the important matter of locatiug and widening the streets, it is quite possible, as we have heard it suggested, that much more might have been done in this respect, but it is ques tionable whether the critics considered all the circumstances.; and the wisdom of the author ites in witholding at such times is as worthy as that of granting. So far as we are able to judge, the changes that have been made, will prove of great advantage. The widening of Cross, Temple and Plum streets, was greatly needed, and the pressuie of travel will be di minished thereby to the convenience of every body. Among other unexpected blessings re sulting from the fire, we have now a Public Square—not quite so large as Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens, to be sure, but a space which cannot be covered with shanties, and which will become a pleasant little breathing spot, bright witli verdure, in due time. (The ancient and ugly name which has been fixed upon it won’t do much harm, because it will be merely the The Square or The Park proba bly for a long time.) The work on the City Building goes on vigorously, and we are assur ed that the rebuilt Hall shall be fully equal to the old one. Push it along—that is what we want now. But we are most gratified by the evidence of energy on the part of our City and school authoritiespn the building at such a time of the school house on Munjoy, which seems to be nearly doue, and which is as substantial and handsome a building as wc need or could hope for even in a period of financial prosper ity. No better proof could be desired of the wholesome condition of the people or the gov ernment of the city than the prompt building of this noble school house. It shows that we know where money is well spent. All this points to a cheerful future. The city is not dead, but more alive than ever. Very little croaking or whining is heard now. It is probable that the poor people of the City are not more distressed than they were before the fire. We believe that the worst of the gale is. weathered, and are disposed to give due credit to the public servants who have striven earnestly through this trying period ior the good of all concerned—the Mayor, the City Government, and the various Committees of Relief. Ilanhcrah Cnndr and Other Poi.ona. In the Boston Medical anl Surgical Jour nal for Nov. 22d, the dangerous nature of the drug which gives a name to Hasheesh Candy was dearly pointed out and the profession and public were warned agaiust its use. Dr. Wni. M. Cornell, of Boston, resumes the subject in the last number of the Journal, addressing the editors as follows: Your remarks were very timely, as this kiud ot candy hits recently come into very general use; and especially as many young persons and children use it who have no knowledge of its deleterious effects. Whether the good story which you quoted from Aladdin Abusha be true or false, or, like the manner related ionnerly of collecting the resin of the cannabis Indica, by persons clothed in leather running among the plants, and then scraping off the resinous product for medicine, as stated in the United States Dispensatory, which Dr. Wood, in a note to the last edition of that work, says, if not quite untrue, is at least apocryphal; one thing is certain, that this and other poisonous nar cotics are doing immense harm among the people, lienee you have not lifted the warn ing voice too soon. Some years ago, a gentleman came running into my oihee iu gieat haste, and apparently , in great anxiety, and said. “1 want you to go 1 and see my wile as soon as possible. She has I been taking the hasheesh and I am afraid she has taken enougli to kill her.'’ 1 hastened to j his house and found liis wile in the wildest delirium. She was running from one part of the large room to the other, dapping her hands, singing, shouting, looking up to the ceiling, and jumping as though she expected every moment to -go up.” I said mildly, j “please sit dowu.” “How can I,” said she, | “when I am going? oh I am going,going up.’ i At length, by telling her I would “go up with her if she would drink with me,'' she took a glass of brandy. Then she seemed a little less phrenzied, but was still going up every few moments. Alter a cup of stroug coffee, and an hour's quietness, the cllcct of the hasheesh passed oil' aud left her in a debilitated state. She was a woman of very slight figure, nat uially nervous, exceedingly pleasant and agreeable in conversation, of a very excitable temperament; and, oir the whole,just the last ease iu which the hasheesh should be taken. While on this subject, I will refer to one or two more cases of the powerlul narcotics which are scattered broadcast over the land bv promiscuous sale. Filteen years ago, I had a patient in this city afflicted witb nervous dyspepsia. IShe was under my cave two or three years, and gradually improved. One day she brought me a box ot pills and said: “I saw an advertise ment that these pili3 would cure neivous dis eases. I wrote to the advertiser, in Brooklyn, New York. I think it was by some ‘retired clergyman,’ or possibly ‘old Dr. James, whose sands had nearly run out.’ The advertise ment said the recipe would be sent on the re ception of a stamp. But, instead of tne re cipe, came a letter stating that he could fur uish the pills cheaper than any other one, and would send a box for one dollar.” She sent the dollar, and here was the box. But she did not dare to take them. “Had she better do it?-’ This was the question. Of course I said no. She did not take them, and escaped the tale of another ot my natients who did take them. This was an epileptic, from the western part of tjif State. He had been under ray care for some time: thought l,„ i wbat, but did not recover i?<Pr°VeJ some obtained three boxes of these nm,"1 wr ;UK! taken two, and commenced the Sir i tv deJilium cause on and be died. * w,ien Kach pill wtu found to contain an cnor mous dose ol Ignatia, or St Ignatius’s bc'm The United Stales Dispensatory says: So en ergetic a substance should never be taken without regular medical supervision, as it may prove, if abused, a most terrific poison.” J The Teuapernare Reform. To tite Eottob of tiie Press: Sut,—Tite communication of “Washington ian” in your paper of fo-day contains some very good suggestions, and yet wanders very widely from the mark, at which the communi cation was aimed. The suggestion that total abstinence socie ties should be revived would be more appro priate, il such organization did not exist iu nearly every town in the State. Tite Wash ingtonian Society exists in this city to-day, and its meetings would doubtless be morein terestingand beneficial, if “Washingtonian” would lend the aid of his presence and voice.— If he will join that society, or will organize another of those persons who sympathize with his views about the law, I venture to say that they can do much good and that, alter six mouths earnest efl'oit for the cause, they will agree with the “active” friends of temperance as to the necessity for “law.” For there are no more earnest advocates of “legal suasion” for the rum seller than those “Washington ians" who did so great a work us to merit and receive the approbation of your correspondent “ W ashingtonian.” “The leading temperance men of the pres ent day” advocate the total suppression of the liquor traffic. Is there anything more incon sistent witli the “Golden Rule” in this, than in the laws, which I dare say “Washingtoni an” approves, for the suppression of thieving, arson, murder or any other crime which in jures society? avarice nerves some man to commit “theft •” and all.agree that society must be protected by “law,” from such men. Avarice prompts other men to sell mm, the consequences of which, to the community are a hundred fold more ityurious than those of “thieving" aud it is not entirely suppressed. Why is It not as ell'ectually prevented as “thieving ?* Because it “pays” better. And it “pays” because the law for its punishment is not commensurate with the temptation to engage in it; and be cause, if perchance a law is enacted, its et - forcemeat is almost prevented hy the men who while advocating iaw for the thief at d murderer, yet plead the “Golden Huie” in be half of a class who cause nine-tenths of all the crime and poverty which alllict society! It is a fact that many seizures have been made in this city during the past year. It is also a fact that much intempeiance has pre vailed. But to say that the latter results from the former is as logical as to claim that the rebellion lasted five years because of the many battles that were fought. The rebellion last eu in spite of these until the iron will of Grant and the concentrated determination of the people crushed it out. So rum selling will last, in spite of seizures until the law is ei iorced with as much rigor as against pitiful clothes thieves, and untii the iaw is severe enough in its penalties to make the risk on the part of the rum seller too great to con-" linue the business. A man loves a few cento from his till and the police “w„rk” the case up and the ill starr ed thief is shortly incarcerated. A man’s son is brought home dead drunk, or a woman drops drunk in the streets and is frozen to death and nothing more is done. Why ? because public opinion is not edufcated to demand the closing of the grog sh ips, as loudly as it demands prc> tection for the clothes lines and money draw ers of our citizens. It is a matter of public opinion. And “ac tive temperance meu seek to create a public opinion that shall accomplish the desired end. They are opposed by three classes. The men whose appetites prompt them to support the traffic in spiie of the evil it iudiets upon so ciety ; the men who make their money by sell ing the liquor; and a very large class of re spectahle citizens who have never paid enough attention to the subject to become convinced of the importance of the work. The education of this last class, to a propei degree of interest in the work will accomplish it. But in the mean time is it best to sit down quietly and, because it is diihcult to suppress the sale of liquor,—say it is ail right and prop er; declare the liquor seller is strongly tempt ed by his love lor gain to sell, therefore we should not seek to make his trade disreputa ble by making it illegal ? And now, one word in regard to a para graph, quoted by you from the Augusta cor respondent ot the Boston Advertiser, in refer ence to the proposed amendment to the law. This writer aims for the same thing that “Wasingtonian-’ seeks. Yet he takes a difier cut course. The one, claims that the law has been rigoiously enforced and has tailed to sup press the liquor shops, and, f rgo—we should not enforce the law. The other claims that the law has not been enforced, as it stands, and that we should not seek the amendment. If "Washingtonian” is right in his fart, the Advertiser correspondent is wrong in scout ing the desired amendment. If the Adver tiser correspond^!t is correct in bis statement, that the law has not been enforced, the duty of “Washingtonian” seems rather to be the creation of a public opinion that should give the “law” a fair trial, than in opposing it, as a failure. O. C. The Gerener’i Adtlrnu. To the Editor of the Press: I notice along with many just encomiums upon Governor Chamberlain's message or ad dress,—several expressions of surprise that a gentleman of his habits and employments should be so well versed in the public interests and this doubtless is a common feeling, that persons employed in literary pursnits,—teach ers and other prof essional men,—are not fitted for public stations. Politicians especially, are always ready to assume that men of such hab its of lire can know nothing of the public wants,and are nnfit for posts of honor In the Stale. One thing may be conceded: that an ac quaintance with the routine ol legislation is very convenient to a person called to exercise a public function like that of Governor, lint even this is soon learned by a man of quick perceptions, and is the smallest part of a gen tleman's real qualifications for such a post.— And when we come to the higher qualifica tions required for public office—such as an ac quaintance with the public wants, executive ability, a knowledge of men. affability, t. pop ular address, justice, firmness and integrity and the generous and general culture becom ing an officer of State, who is more likely to have attained these qualifications than the man ol scholarly or professional pursuits? It so happens that American scholarship is not like that of the Germans, separated from all public concerns. Our most scholarly men have as deep an interest in the a tars of the State and country,as have men of other pur suits. The professor iuhis supposed retirement, is indirect communication withal) the world— tlirough the press—and devotes more time, in all probability, to public intelligence, ami pub lic interests, thin tbe merchant, the aitizan and busiucss men generally. The merebaut, the lawyer, tbe banker, tbe mechanic, have no more lime, surely, llrau the prolessor, to study the art of government or to become acquainted with the country's history and necessities. We shall look, then, to Governor Chamber lain’s success to demonstrate our position that men of scholarly pursuits are not less qualified than persons in other walks of life, to assume the responsibilities of public office— other things l>cing equal. In this connection it may be remarked that President Lincoln showed lib good common sense by appointing to foreign missions sever al gentlemen of scholarly attainments, who have proved not merely ornament* to their positions, but men of energy and efficiency, and it will be a sad day tor the respectability Of our country abroad, when such men as Motley shall be replaced at foreign courts, by recreant politicians like Cowan, whom the people have elected to stay at home. F. C. ess ^'l he “Park’* once more. 1 like the suggestion of -Heathen Land” to call the reserved part of the bn nt district I “Lincoln Square,” all but the Square.

Let the grounds be handsomely laid out, the Lincoln tree plauted in the ceutre, and then receive l the name, and thus honor the memory of our t “second Washington.'’ B. I --- *■«»<• iVlarrinjira. Our article, in a former Press, in relation to early marriages, has provoked tho request ot a female friend who desired our opinion concerning the fitness of old bachelors for matrimony. In reply we would say, never marry a confirmed old bachelor. The habits of such a man arc too rigid, and 6f -too long standing to allow an assimilation of his dispi - sition with your own. Inflexible in all his no tions, he will demand of you the whole work of concession; nay, you must become as un reasonable as himself, or you can never ex pect harmony in bis society. A mail who has hung for yoars, like a pendulum, between his love and hatred of woman—between his mo tives of marriage and his ideas of prudence_ is an unsafe companion for any well informed and delicate y.mng lady. He will continue to swing at extremes, and will hit her, at each vibralion, “without rhyme or reason.” Rather than marry an oid bachelor, wc se riously advi ,e any young woman to accept the hand of a mau who lias lived successively and liouorably with seven wives, even though ho should bring with him a number ol lgooi)| children. Such a m in knows the worth of woman, and understands how to treat her with the tenderness and consideiation to which she is ciititle.l—a treatment which >is always an indispensable condition of con jugal and domestic happiness. __Traxi.
