For once the reporters have lost the scent; the quid nunc* are off the track and in default of kuowing anything themselves are declaring that the Judiciary Committee know nothing; the opponents ot the Investigation are alarmed : by tbc extreme reticence with which the Judi ciary Committee have managed their affairs while the Committee are doubtless laughing in their sleeves at the manner in which they have succeeded in keeping their own council. This much however may bo relied upon: The Committee are at work industriously and reg ularly. There is little doubt moreover that tlio investigation can result in but one way the presentation of the articles of Impeach ment. The Wilkes Booth Diary has been at last ferreted out. This document found on the person of the assassin lias hitherto been sup messed. It undoubtedly shows that the as sassin was acting in the inception of the plot in the pay of the rebel government, but that in the latter fatal portion thereof, he seems to have himself decided on the murder^ as the host way of aiding the cause and at the same time of extracting himself from complicity itli the conspiracy to kidnap Mr. Lincoln, which the trials developed to have been in ex istence. There are reported to he minutes in the diary which show the presence of Wilkes Booth in the neighborhood of Silver Springs— the residence of the senior Blair. The ques tion is raised in connection with other matters, as to what he was doing there. Mr. Johnson, it will lie remembered, was a guest at the same place lor some time after the drunken inaugui ation. Mr. Pike’s Committee for the investigation of the release of the murderers of the Maino soldiers, had Secretary Browning belorc them this morning. Mr. Browning it is declared received $10,000 for the procurement of the murderers release and final pardon. While on the subject of pardons let me note by the way that the report sent in by the At torney General in answer to the resolution of the House relative to the number of pardons, contains but 280 names of pardoned rebels, of this number the Attorney General seems to have endorsed and engineered one sixth of them—forty-seven in all. TTIK MARYLAND COUNTER REVOLUTION. This morning Gen. Hamilton A. Ward of New York stirred up the Maryland “Cops” and their associates in the House, by the presenta tion and advocacy of a resolution calling for all the papers and demanding an investigation into the interference with the late elections in Maryland bythe Executive. G en. Ward's reso lution was couched in ardent terms, and his advocacy thereof was equally as ardent. There is no doubt whatever that there was a deliber ate overawing and threatening of the loyal men, by reason of the expected interference by Gen. Grant with the Police Commissioners le gal resistance to the Governor’s usurpation.— Hamilton’s resolution brought to his feet the clnmsy looking shadow of a man who pretends to fill the honored seat of the eloquent and ele gant Henry Winter Davis. He declared the resolution was inspired only by the defeated candidates in Maryland. General Ward’s res ponse was stirring. He charged that the situ ation in Maryland was part ot the conspiracy in which the President, the Supreme Court, the northern Copperheads and the Southern rebels were all engaged to rehabilitate the forces of the rebellion and restore them to power in the land, and *’ifat the loyal people had no re course except in the action of and protection by Congress. The resolution was adopted and is the first step towards a movement tor the rescue of Maryland. The pro-rebel Legislature of that State is activeiy engaged in the work of de stroying all the safeguards which the loyal (white) minority had industriously erected.— Gov. Francis Thomas, the representative irom the Western District of Maryland, has a bill prepared authorizing the people of Maryland to organize a Republican State Government, the one existing there being subverted by dis loyal influences. Under this, the inteution is to obtain the votes of the loyal colored men as as well whites. There are believed to be about 8000 of the former who would then be compe tent to vote. Hon. J. J. Stewart, the Radi cal contestant for the seat in Henry Winter Davis' old District has arranged to poll the votes of this disfranch sed class In that District, claiming if the votes of disloyal men are to be allowed when disqualified by State enactment, then the votes of disfranchised loyal men, rec ognized as citizens under the laws of the U. S. ought fairly to be counted. TIIE NAME OF A GENTLEMAN OF THE OLD SCHOOL. Gov. Francis ThomaB will be remembered by tae Elder politicians of the old Democracy, as that of one of the most promising and eloquent men in the Border States, about a score of years ago. He is known as the “Fox of Mount Savage,” having lived in a wild and romantic portion of the Allghanics during twenty years—a recluse and secluded from all public liie. The attack on the Union brought him from his privacy, ard those who were here in the extra session of 1861, will not soon lorget the electric thrill which followed the magnificent rebuke admini tered by the Governor to Henry May of Baltimore, who had dec ared Maryland to be for the South,— Governor Thomas is a dignified, silver-haired, and intellectual looking man of sixty years, above the middle stature, slender but wiry form, and witli all the courtly grace of the “old school.” He wears the look of a recluse, one who had lived near to Nature and the Great Thinkers. The appearance of this venerable man in public life has in it much of romance and something of pathos. It is told that at the time of his sudden retirement from the po litical arena he was the most formidable op ponent of Polk far the Presidency. He had been or was at the time Gov. of Maryland.— His wife a Virgiuian belle was the cause of his hermit life. Accusations of frailty were whis pered. Her family took up the defence and on this Gov. Thomas was violently assailed. He returned to his home and never afterwards took part in aifiirs until the rebellion roused itself to action. Gov. Thomas is an able and still remarka bly eloquent man. His voice is very rich and sonorous. No more radical man is found on the floor. In the last canvass he was an open advocate of universal suffrage. The only rad ical elected without question from hi^State, to Maryland in the 40th Congress, the attention of the House will he drawn to him. Spectator. New Hampshire items. To True Editor of the Tress: Dover, N. H., Jan. 21.18C7. The print works here print into calico, 10,000, 000 yards, all of which is manufactured by the Oochcco Manufact uring Co. None of these are sold here except the damaged ones which are generally bought by the merchants to retail.

Near the summit of Lower Mountain on the face of a bare ledge, inclined about forty-five degrees! is a flight of steps, 15 in number, about nine inches in height, apparently hewn, lead ing from the summit down to a pond which is in a hollow near the top ot the mountain.

Steve. —The most celebrated wits and bon meant* of the day graced the dinner-table of the late Dr. Kitchner, and among others, George Dol man who was an especial favorite; his interpo lation of a little monosyllable in a written ad monition which the Doctor caused to be placed on the mantle piece of the dining narlor will never lie forgotten, and was the origin of such a drinking bout a ft w as seldom permitted un der bis roof. The caution ran thus: “come at seven, go at eleven.” Colman briefly altered the sense of it; for upon the Doctor’s attention being directed to the card, he read, to his as to shuicnt “come at seven go it at eleven 1’ which tho guests did, and the claret was fur pislied accordingly, Letter front the State Cttpiinl* Augusta, Jan. IS To the Editor ok tile Press: It is now twenty days sin.e the Forty-sixth Legislature of Maine convened for organiza tion in their respective halls. Duiing this time the character of this body lias become so far developed as to distinguish it above all others in the last ten years as the workinu Legitlature. At the present hour a greater amount of busi ness lias received attention and been finally disposed of than in the same time at any ses sion for several years. Tlio several committees, from the first, enter ed with a will upon tho work before them, not merely with a view to reduce tho length of the session to the shortest practicable time, but to transact their business without that unneces sary delay which was the custom formerly. The committee ou Interior Waters gave to day an example of decisive action whicli should serve as a warning to all parties disposed to bo dilatory in their business with tills Legislature. A strong petition from parties at Bangor tor authority to divert the waters of Pushaw Lake into the Kcnduskeug stream has been present ed and an effort made by its friends to have it referred to the committee on ltailruads, \\ ays and Bridges. This failed and it was assigned to the appropriate committee, as above, by whom to-day was fixed for a hearing on the case. The remonstrants, mostly residents of Orouo and Oldtown, were represented by a large delegation headed by- Hon. Geo. P. Sew all, and were ready to contest the matter; but the petitioners failed to come to time, whereup on the committee promptly decided that the case weut by default and gave the petitioners leave to withdraw* Baugor is usually smart but the up-river boys walk on snow-shoes and don’t allow a winter storm to shut them in from the outside world. The bills which have so far passed, number ing thirty or more, are generally acts of incor poration or others of the class known as “Pri vate and Special Laws.” Among those in which your city is directly or indirectly inter ested, is tho incorporation of the Merchants’ Exchange Company of Portland with T. C. Herscy, John B. Brown, G. W. Woodman. John Lynch, S. E. Spring, W. W. Thomas and others as corporators; the incorporation ot the Portland Institute and Public Library with the names of Ether Shepley, Wm. Pitt Fessen den, Israel Washburn, Jr., John Neal, Wm.

In the list oi Special acts appears one changing the name of a time honored institu tion.

Mr. Boutwell’a Bill. The following is tho full text of the bill re potted by Mr. Boutwell of Massachusetts, from the judiciary committee, as a substitute for the House bill to prescribe an oath tor public officers, members of the bar, &c.: ■ Section 1. Beit enacted, <tc., That no person shill be permitted as an attorney or counsellor in any court of the United States who has becu guilty of treason, bribery, murder, or oili er felony, or who has been engaged in any re bellion againBt the government of the United States, or who has given aid, comfort or en couragement to the inclines of the United States in armed hostility thereto. Section 2. And be it further enacted, that the first section of this act is hereby declared to be a rule of every court of tue United States. Section 3. And be it further enacted, That it Bhall be the duty of tne judge or judges of any such court, when the suggestion is made in opeD court tnat any person acting as an at torney or counsellor of said court, or offering or proposing to so act, is barred by the pro visions of this act, or whenever said judge or judges shall beiieve that such a person is so barred, to inquire and ascertain whether such person has been guilty of treason, bribery, murder1 or other felony, or whether he has been engaged in any rebellion against the govern ment of the United States, or whether he has given aid, contort or encouragement to the enemies of the U nited States in armod hostili ty thereto ; and if the court shall be of opinion that such person has been guilty of treason, bribery, murder, or other felony, or that he has been engaged in any rebellion against the gov ernment of the United States, or that he lias given aid, comfort or encouragement to the en emies of the United States in armed hostility thereto, to exclude and debar such person from the office of attorney or counsellor of said court; aud any person who shall testify falsely in any examination made by any court as afuresaid, shall be guilty of perjury and lia ble to the pains and penalties of perjury. ® III presenting this bill Mr. Boutwell said, if a majority of the Supremo Court had not self respect enough to adopt rules excluding rebels and traitors from the bar of that court, it was time tor the legislative power to step in and make rules for them. The debate was briefly participated in by several gentlemen, every Democrat and Copperhead who could get the floor taking occasion to eulogizo the j udges who concurred in the test oath decision. Mr. Boutwell, jn closing the debate, declared with thrilling effect, that he would never subscribe to the doctrine that a Presidential pardon could put murderers or traitors on a footing with men who had never been guilty of crime. The President might open all the jails and peni tentiaries in the land with his pardons, but while he had a seat in the House he would never admit that the President’s pardon gave a traitor the right to enter the bar of the court and assist in administering justice. The gal leries and the Republican side of the House answered this sentiment with a quick and elec tric burst of applause. Death of Mr. Alexander Smith. Our foreign files received by the North Amer ican, announce the death of Mr. Alexander Smith, author of11A Life Drama," and other poems, and secretary of the U niversity of Edin burgh. This event took place at Wardic, near Edinburgh on the 5th inst. The Liverpool Post of Jan. 10, has the following sketch of his career. Mr. Smith, who was the son of a pattern de signer, was born at Kilmarnock, on the 31st December. 1830, so that he had .just entered his 37th year. He received a fair education in youth, and showing uncommon talent, was destined for the pulpit, but a severe illness led to a change of purpose, and young Smith was put to his lathers business. While engaged In preparing patterns for a lace factory in Glas glow,Mr. Smith began to cultivate the Muses, and his first work, “A Life Drama,” was pub lished in the pages of the Critic in 1852, and af terwards in a volume with other poems in 1853. The merits of Mr. Smith formed a sub ject of disputation among the critics, some recognizing only one wealth of imagery in his poems, others pointing to his imitative tenden cies, and refusing him any claim to originality. By his subsequent works, however, Mr. Smith fully settled his claim to rank among the poets. In 1854, he published in conjunction with Mr. Dobell, “Sonnets on the (Crimean) War,” and in 1857, “City Poems,” and “Edwin of Deira.” At a later period he distinguished his himself as a prose writer, publishing in 1863, “Dream thorp/1 1865, “A Summer in Skye,” and “Al fred Hagart’s Household.” He was also a fre quent contributor to “Good Words" and other serials, as well as to journalistic literature. In 1854, he was appointed, mainly in recognition of his literary talents, to the office of secretary of Edinburgh University. He married about ten years ago, and has left a widow and family. .Anecdote.— An exchange paper tells an an ecdote of Dr. Winston, a devoted Baptist min ister in the South some years since, and an ar dent Democrat. It is as follows:— On one occasion he had several friends spending the evening at his house, and before they retired, as was his wont, he took down the old family Bible to read a portion of Scrip ture, and have a “word of prayer.” It so hap pened that he opened the sacred volume at tne epistle of Titus, where the Apostle says:— “Put theui in mind to be subject to principal ities and powers, and obey magistrates, and be prepared for every good word and work.” As was his habit to comment upon the texts as he went along, whon he read this passage he took off his spectrcles and with a gravity suited to the occasion, he remarked—“There, my friends is where I differ from brother 1 aul. Mr. Jefferson te Is us that the converse of this proposition is true—that is, mm in office shoul' always be obedient to tic people, and I agree with the great author of the Declara tion of Independence. The Apostlo was no doubt a good preacher, and a good Christian, but it is clear enough he was no Democrat!” “The Tribune in a Storm,” is the title of a vivid and intensely interesting narrative, in the fourth number of Northern Lights, of the scenes and incidents connected with the attack on the Tribune office during the mem orable riot of July, 1863. It is a thrilling sketch and one which will be very widely read. Among those who contribute to this number of Northern Lights are Fred. W. Shelton, Ed ward S. Rand, Jr., John Hay, R. F. Fuller, Kane O’Donnel, Geo. S. Burleigh, L. J. Bige low, Geo. B. Woods,George H. Clark and Ed mund Kirke. The “Contributors’ Club” in the next number will be written by Mrs. Howe. Colomno Trees. A London paper savs “Ncwist among wliat. Mr. Tennyson calls ‘fairy gifts of science’ we notice an invention of Mr. Hyett to make trees imbibe color while growing.

JANUARY TERM.—BARROWS, J, PRESIDING. ^ E dnesdaY. —The trial of the Collagan * ill case was resumed, and the api>ellaut introduced testimo ny in support of tho will. The cross examination of Mrs. Harding was concluded, and evidence was given by Miss Annie C. Holmes, Mrs. Martha E. Holmes. Joseph Harding, Harriet Leonard, Mrs. Jo anna Farrington, Harriet Gordon and Mary Gordon. The principal point of the testimony of these wit nesses was that Capt. Collagan acknowledged the in strument, after its mutilation, to be his last will and testament. After reading the deposition of Mrs. Ra chel Pearce, counsel lor appellant rested. Mr. Deane then opened the case for the heirs at law. in a very able manner, insisting that the instru ment in question was annulled by Capt. Collagan, and that he subsequently made and executed anoth er will, which had never been produced by the appel lant. He said that proot sufficient to satisfy the jury would be produced, that Capt. Collagan had no in tention that the will in question should ever be car ried into effect. At the conclusion of his opening Court adjourned to 9 o’clock Thursday morning. Opinion* Cliangc. The report of our City Horse Railroad Com pany shows the number of passengers for 180G to be over one million. This will give interest to the following dialogue, which actually took place some four years ago: Enter Horse Railroad Man.—(To member of the City Council.!—We want the right of way to ruu Horse Cars in this city. Member.—You do? Do you think it will pay? R. R. Man.—We can’t tell,but are disposed to try it if you will give us a chance. Member.—It seems tome thatit will be money throwu away. How many passengers do you expect to carry in a year? R. R. Man.—As many as will ride and pay. Member.—Do you think you will carry a num ber equal to tho population of our city, say thirty thousand? R. R. Man.—I should hope to largely exceed that number. Member.—I doubt it; you must bear in mind that we have a great many old persons and children enumerated in the census who will have no occasion for riding. Tremendous Blast.—Yesterday afternoon the men engaged in blasting the ledge on Middle street, on the lot in front of the Casco National Bank building, fired off a seam charge. The explosion that ensued was terrific. A portion of the front of the bank edifice was stove in and a number of large rocks, some of which will weigh 200 pounds were thrown into the building carrying away the stagings that had been erected. There were about thirty men, painters and carpenters, at work inside, but, wonderful to relate not a person was in jured. The painters who were on the staging, clung to the cornices and saved themselves, while the rocks went by them into the back part of the building, raising a mnss among the paint pots. About one half of the front of the edifice will have to be rebuilt . Attempt to Break Jail.—Tuesday night an attempt was made by some of the fellows confined in the jail, to release themselves by setting fire to a wooden spittoon filled with saw dust, in one of the corridors. It is sup posed the prisoners hoped they should be able to escape in the consternation which would take place among the officers of the jail when the floor of the corridor, whicn is composed of pitch pine, should catch. Fortunately tho smoke from the saw dust attracted the atten tion of the keeper, and tho plan of the prison ers was frustrated. Assault.—Tuesday evening, between 9 and 10 o'clock, one of the clerks in the Post Office was returning home, and as he was passing up Middle street, three fellows armed with clubs, jostled against him and threatened to flog him. He turned upon them, pulled a revolver from his pocket and aimed it at them threatening to blow out the brains of the first one that touch ed him. The scamps, seeing that he was arm ed took to their heels. They probably intend ed to rob him. Painting.—Mr. Leighton, a pupil of Brown, the painter, has produced a very pleasant pic ture of a sleigh-ride, which may be seen in the window of a dry goods store on Free street. The painting of animals is evidently Mr. Leigh ton’s speciality. If he follows this branch oi art with the fidelity and paticnco which any branch requires, he will attain distinction.— There is both originality and humor in this specimen. Sidewalk*. • Mr. Editor :—Some people love their fellow beings and obey the laws, as in the case with those who shovel paths on the sidewalk. Such ones, however, destroy the beautiful uniformi ty of the drifts, and expose their fellow travel lers to the danger of being precipitated from the precipices on their neighbors’ walks. One who fell. Maine Bible Society.—At a recent meet ing of the Trustees of the Maine Bible Socie ty, it was voted to furnish bibles, gratuitously, to those peTRons who had lost theirs by the conflagration of last July. Application may be made to cither Hezekiali Packard, corner ol Congress and Oak streets or Oliver Gerrisli. O. P. Tuekerman, Thos. B. Ripley, and Kben Steele, committee for distribution. Detention.—The Portland & Kennebec and Maine Central passenger and mail trains fail ed to connect with the train for Boston yester day afternoon. On the former, the forward wheels of the smoking car got off the track at Yarmouth, delaying the train about an hour. On the latter the snow had blown in on the track delaying the train two hours. Arrest.—Polly War.en, who has frequently been an inmate of the work house was rrrested yesterday afternoon lor stealing £10 from a house on Pleasant Street during the absence of the woman of the house. The money was re covered and Polly was locked up for exami nation or to await an Overseer’s warrant. Accident.—Mr. Seavey, brakeman on the Portland, Saco & Portsmouth Railroad, was severely injured at Biddeford Tuesday evening by being jammed between the cars while he was in the act of shackling them. As Mrs. M. W. Haskell’s daughter was walking on a rough chamber floor tho heel of her boot caught in a board, twisting her insuch a shape as to break her leg just below the knee. Dr. Small was called and dressed the limb. Liquor Seizures.—Yesterday the Deputy Marshals seized small quantities of liquors and ale in the shops of P. & J. Bradley, Patrick McGlinchy, Edward Brooks and Joseph Cowan. Appointment of Deputy Sheriffs.—Sher iff Parker has appointed additional deputies as follows: Albion K. Morse, Harrison, and Wm. L. Pennell of Westbrook. The members of the Legislative Club are requested to meet at tho Common Council Boom this evening at 71-2 o’clock. British Colonial Items. —It is reported that M. Michel, the govern ment geologist, whose report on the gold mines of the Chaudiere gave so much satisfaction, speaks favorably of tho Madoc mines. The ex istence of gold seems to be admitted, but strangely enough tho proof is still wanting. Gold or no gold, companies are being formed so begin work in the spring. Belleville, in consequence of tho excitement, is becoming quite a lively place, and ft is believed that on the opening of spring crowds of gold hunters will flock thither, as it is only a few miles from the mines. —Highly conflicting are the rumors which come to us in relation to the removal of the Canadian scat of government. A Toronto dispatch of the 19th says the government has decided, if confederation is desired by the peo ple, to remove the seat of government from Ottawa to Montreal, and to accept the offer of the Bishop of Montreal for the government buildings at Ottawa. A usually well-informed correspondent asserts that a majority of tho delegates now in England have decided in fa vor of Quebec. It is not at all likely that aDy such decision has been arrived at, but even if it has, the people will have something to say about tho matter. The delegates have no power to meddle with the scat of government question. There are said to be two objections to Ottawa. One is that it is not sufficiently central for the whole of British America, and and the other, that it is incapable of being for* lifted. * THE 8TATE. —On Friday morning last a brick store in Alfred, occupied by Messrs. 8ayward & Nut ter, and containing $5000 worth of goods, the law office of Drew Sc Hamilton, and the Griffin hotel, were destroyed by fire. To gave the eastern part of the village a store adjoining the hotel was blown up. The loss is about $10,000, which is lightly insured. —The Portsmouth Chronicle records a pedestrian teat of Hon. N. G. Marshal of York, ! Assessor of the first Congressional District of Maine, who on Tuesday forenoon walked from his rcsideucc in York to that city, a distance of eight miles, without any path having been made, until lie reached the old mill at Ivittcry; the snow averaving from two to six feet in the roads. —The Machias Republican says: “The Ma ehias river is still open clear up to the wharves, and vessels are still coming in going out. The tug Delta is moving up and down daily, a dead ly enemy to Jack Frost.” —A correspondent of the Farmer, writing from Enfield, in this State, says: This town lies on the Penobscot river, about 3C> miles north of Bangor. It has been nearly 45 years since the first settlers came into the town, still there is considerable land unoccu Eied, and for sale. Farms are valued from six undred to one thousand dollars, and some per haps as high as twelve and fifteen hundred dol lars. It is very probable that the European Sc North American Railroad will run through this town. \Vc have an excellent water privi lege, though it is not occupied as it should be. It is in the eastern part ot the town, at the foot of Cold Stream Lake. It is a good chance for factories. The place is called Treat’s Mills. There are two stage roads through the town, one on the west running near the river, the other on the east running near and on the west side of the lake; also, a good road through the centre of the town, and a country road laid out between the centre and river roads. There will lie a great amount of lumbering done on the Penabscot waters this winter. Wagesarehigh. Men get from $18 to $50 per month; a man with a span ot heavy horses will get from $50 to $(i5 per month, and light horses in propor tion. We have a good market for all kinds of farm produce. Oats arc worth 75 cents per bushel, and othor kinds of produce nearly in proportion. —Lyman E., son of John Rogers, of Stetson, aged about five years, was sliding down hill Friday morning last, when his sled ran under an ox-slod, the latter passing over his body and crushing him in a fatal manner. The child died after lingering three or four hours. Tin- Tragedy at Writ Auburn. The Lewiston Journal of yesterday says the murder at West Auburn is the all absorbing topic of interest in that vicinity, and the mys tery still grows. Those well accustomed to in vestigations of crime, argue in favor of the theory that the murder was committed to achieve aud to conceal rape. Sheriff Parker is confined to his bed by sick ness, but Constable Joseph Littlefield aud oth er gentlemen have been engaged all day to day in further search. There are certain other suspected parties who answer — one of them, at least — to the description given of the straggler who called at Mr. Libby’s Thursday morning, but we are not yet advised as to whether further arrests have been made. It is now ‘elt to be conclusively proved that Johnson is innocent. Mr. Briggs, with whom he stayed Thursday night, confirms Johnson’s movements equally as well as does Mr. Wheat on, with whom he stayed Wednesday night.— That Johnson could not have got np Wednes day night aud left the houso to do such a deed Is further proven by the appearance of his room the next morning. Johnson has not yet been released from confinement but will prob ably he released to-morrow, if nothing unfore seen transpires. A faithful examination ot the premises and scene of the murder shows that the mnrderer attempted to set fire to the house. In the wood shed a pile of kindlings and birch bark, partly burned, was discovered on Monday, having been concealed by the snow that had blown in. A careful observation of the interior of the house renders the conclusion probable that the murderer first assailed Mrs. Kinsley, and that Miss Caswell at once leaped from her bed which was evidently not disturbed by the ruf fian. It may be that he forced her to light a lamp near the stove. It is at least probable that as she approached the stove for some pur pose, the villian made a thru-1 at her with the knife, cutting her arm perhaps, as here consid erable blood was found. Then pursuing the terrified woman with knife aud chair, he at last struck her down in the entry. The fact that the life blood as it flowed out was not splashed around indicated that the unfortu nate woman did not struggle much after being felted in the entry. The awiulness of tliis scene cannot he imagined. The shrieks and groans of the murdered women must ring in the ear of the murderer with terrific monition! The Alabama Claims and Arbitraliou. The London Telegraph has the following: “It is understod that her Majesty’s ministers have expressed their readiness to doal with the claims put forward by the Government at Washington in respect to the Alabama by referring the matter to arbitration. In so doing they rescind the refusal of Lord Russell to admit the idea of arbitration, but at the same time they recognize those difficulties in the way of any such settlement which prompt ed the decision of the late Minister for For eign Affairs. Of course, while tho principal of arbitration is accepted, the acceptance must be subject to the condition that the points re ferred shall be found admissible; and the Gov ernment of the United States will now have to define what are the osact issues on which it chums redress for alleged injuries.” The Eastport Sentinel of Wednesday, ICth, readied us by mail yesterday.
