Death ufa Celebrated I'lent hmna. The Paris correspondent of the London Times, writing under date of Jan. 8, furnishes the following sketch ol one of the c'vief nota bilities of France, a man remarkable for his own personal eiiatacter and history, but still more so Jor the romantic interest which at taches to both his parents. His father was the celebrated Louis de Laroche pique lei n; his mother the famous '•lloraiue of La Vendee,’ whose memoirs, written by hcrsell, lUrnishtbe most complete and vivid picture which lias collie down to us ol the heroic sacrifices and sutleriugs of the Yeudeau patriots. The cor respondent says: At the little village of Peep in the depart ment ol the Seine et-Oise, about three-quar ters of a mile from St. Germain en Laye, and cbietHy known as the point where the allied armies crossed the Seine on the 1st ol July, 181.i, died yesterday, alter a long illness. Hen ri ilu Vergier, Marquis de Larochejaquclcin. He was the son ol the heroine ol La Vendee by her second marriage, ami nephew of Henri Larochejaqueleiu, the ehiei of the Vendean army, who fell a victim to liis humanity when offering quarter to two Republican soldiers upon whom his followers were about to fire, lie rode up aioue, and called upon them to sunender, hut, without saying a word, one ol them raised his piece and shot him through the forehead. He tell dead at their feet, and was hurled where h? fell. The first husband of Madatne de Larocheiaqueleiu was the Mar quis de Leseure, also a general in the Veudean army, and one of its most intrepid leaders. In an encounter with the Republicans at Trem biaye he was mortally wounded by a musket hail, which struck him on the eyebrow, and died a lew days after, on the lid of November, 170:5. When the Royalist cause was comph te ly ruined, Madame de Leseure and her moth er set out lor'Spain, where they lived for two or three years. They were then permitted to return to France, and on Bonaparte's acces sion to the sovereignty had a considerable por tion of th 'ir property restored to them. At tlie earnest entreaties of her mother, Madame de Leseure at length consented to give her hand to Louis de Larochejaquclein, brother of the young Henri, and the inheritor of his prin ciples. They were married in 1802. The eldest horn ok this marriage is the person whose deatli has just taken place. i ne taie aiarquiB was Dorn in 1804, and was created a Peer of France at the early age of 11. He entered the military service in 1821, and made the campaign of Spain under the Duke d Augouleme in 182:1, and was captain in the Horse Grenadiers of the Royal Guard in 1828. In that year he petitioned the King to be al lowed to seive in the Greek war oi indepen dence. hut was refused. He obtained leave, however, to j oft) the Russian army as a simple volunteer in the campaign of the Balkau against the Turks, ‘"having nothing to do,” as he afterwards said in the Chamber of Depu ties. He bad not taken his seal in the Upper House when the Revolution of July broke out. Whether any oilers were made him by the new Government 1 cannot, say. but he publicly an nounced his resolution not to serve In any ca pacity. and resigned his peeiage. From that lime till 1842 he devoted himself to industrial pursuits, with however, little material benefit to himself. In that year he was rt turned by the electors of Ploermel, in the Morbihan, to the (:hamber of Deputies. His Parliamentary career was not one of idleness. In most of the stormy diseussious of the time he took a prominent part, and was a ready, llucnt, and vigorous debater ou tbe addresses, conscription laws, prison reform, railway Bills, electoral reform, A c. He spoke bis mind boldly—on most occasions in opposition to the Govern ment. and on some, too, against bis own party. When a stigma was attempted to be fixed by the majority on the Loyalists who went to London in 1S42 to pay homage to the Count ol Chambord, he repudiated with indignation the dishonouring ephitet. He icstgned his seat, and appealed to the judgment of the electors of the Moybihan. The electors of the Morbihan l(“ponded to tbe appeal, and they cunt liini li-jtA fllh Pll'linliur lirlinn kn severed in the same course. in the btiuite, however, M. de Laroche jaqueicin assumed au attitude cf independ ence, without much claim to what is called eloquence, llis language was flHent and en ergetic, and he spoke like a man who desired to impress upon his bearers that he enter tained profound convictions. There was one point, however, on which no doubt ex isle i of the sincerity of his sentiments, and that was the temporal power of the Pope. On t'._is lie admitted no compromise; and it was on the question oi the tempoial Papacy that he more than once came into rather fierce collision with Piince Napoleon. In the course ol a tew months the Senate has thus lost iwo nobleman ot the old race whom ad hesion to the new order of things offended, though not iu the same degree, the Legitimist party—the Marquis de boiss.y, and the Mar quis de Larocbejaquelein. There was not much iu common between them. The for mer had no pretensions to oratory, or any thing like it. His opposition was one ot tem perament rather loan ot system. There wete lew points on whictr he agreed with any one. lie was long the torment oi poor Duke Pasquicr in the Cuamber of Peers, lor he was co. staidly carping at everything; and the Chancellor and the Peer o.ten came into ansry contra -t. It was amusing to wits ness the delight ot the Hoke when in alter days he used to have the Moniteur read to him, and when he found that M. Troplong, who filled the same post in the Seriate lliat he had 'll the Peers, was day alter day baited by the querulous Marquis, as he himself had so loufi been. The two Marquises and ex-Peers were as unlike iu [lersonal appearance as in their siy,e of speaking. M. ue iioissy was somewhat low of stature, of thin features, delicate frame, small voice, and quiet of ges ture. M. de Larocbej aquelcin was aoove the middle height, ol a robust and portly pres ence, full round race, with an open brow and t lowing bair, a voice Joud and ringing, and an impassioned gesticulation which sometimes reminded one of the tribune ol revolutionary times. Ue lias fob a widow and four children —a son and three daughters. His eldest daughter entered, a lew years ago. the con vent of the Saere-Ca-ur; the others are mar ried. Spain in 1S60. A writer in “Odds and Ends," gives a very vivid account of the evil eileets which have resulted to Spain from tire fooiish extinction of her foiests. Herein America, where the whole country is being most recklessly and wastcfuliy denuded of its trees, it would be well to take some warning in regard to the sure eiiects of our suicidal course. The writer says, Acidity and barrenness, indeed, is the gen eral characteristic of the whole country. The insane lolly whicli has caused the people to denude the country of trees has modified, no doubt unfavorably, a climate already too dry, which lias well earned the sobriquet ot “Tawny Spain,” and which strikes with as tonishment and horror one new from the de licious freshness aud verdure of England. The Spaniard, and above ail the Castilian, has ari innate hatred oi a tree; if lie does not cut it down log firewood, lie cuts it down because it harbors biids that eat his grain. The people have-not availed themselves of the coal mines with which their country is amply furnished, and consequently the ouly fuel they possess is wood; and the denudation of the country has been the rule of centuries, and is still progress ing in all its vigor. Forests and brushwood alike disappeat before the inevitable axe, until as often occurs in Castile, the traveller may look for leagues over the country without see ing a tree or Kish to break its uniformity, so that the inhabitants are often obliged to have recourse for their household purposes to fires of chopped straw, over which, in the cold win ter days, they cower shivering, when the clouds deprive them of the warmth in the sheltered comer ofthe sunlight outside. This foolish extinction ot the forests has been the source ol innumerable evils to I he country,— evils which are continually acting upon and augmenting eaeli other. Unrestrained by any vegetation, the rain water rrslies dowii the steep sides of the hills and over the plains, wearing them into tie deepgulties, and carry mg off the finer and most valuable particles ot the sod. Tlie rivers, terrible and dangerous ton enls in times of rain shrink, and (fry up almost immediately after this is passed over; the water for which the country is gasping’ hurried off to the sea, becomes lost for ail use ful purposes; an extreme aridity ot the at mosphere is the consequence, a continually diminishing rainfall,and a continually impov erished country, which nothing can now rem edy but a strong, energetic action ou the part of tlie people lo replant and irrigate it. Iiileruntiniial Ricnlla ■■ I'nris. An English paper says: “A few days ago the srerctary of the Humber Rowing Regatta Ctub, at Hull, received a letter from her Maj esty s Commissioners respecting an interna tional regatta proposed to be held this year (probably in July) at Paris, and inviting the dub to take part in lhe event. The Imperial Commisioners have devoted a sum of eight hundred pounds for prizes at the regatta; and contributions have been promised by the Priuce of Wales and the Duko of Edinburgh (one hundredfp.mnds each), the Duke of Marlbor ough, Sir John Pakingtou, Mr. George Den man and others. Roats entered for the races will be conveyed from Loudon to Paris and back again irA of charge. An arrangement for their^arc and custody will be made at Paris. The Wisconsin Henatorhhjp.—Hon, Timo othy O. Howe was re-elected United States Senator from Wisconsin on Tuesday. Judge Howe is a native of Livermore, in this State,— a town which has been prolific ot able men,— and n filty-one years old. He was first elected Senator in 1861. c. A. Eldridge, a member of j tin- House of Representative*, was the Demo cratic candidate for Mr. Howe's place. The American MirceliZny^ItIhs is a magazine of complete stories published by •James H. Brigham, Boston, and for sale here by C. 11. Chisholm and Brother, 307, Congress street. The contents are somewhat of the in tense school, hut unexceptionable, so lar as we have seen, in point of morals, and adapted to the taste of a large class of readers, The liONM of lh<> ©oiuinodor**. The official report of the government inves tigation into the loss of the Sound steamer Commodore is published. The tacts look even worse for the Company than was anticipated.— Not only was the vessel unseaworthy by rea son of her age and her light draught, but she w as not properly equipped according to law, and for the latter reason, the local inspectors at New London,—who for some inscrutable cause agreed to overlook her other defects—refused to give her the necessary certificate. With such a vessel as this, the captain sailed out of port, without consulting his barometer, trust ing the lives of his passengers to chance.— That the crjtcl waters of the Sound did not prove a grave to most of them is owing in no way to any precautions ou the part of the com pany. Thu report says: The crew seem to have been inadequate to the emergency, tor some of them were totally unacquainted with the management of boats. It is a wonder, therefore, that no lives were lost in lauding. Not a little of blame pertains to the captain of the steamer, tor taking her to sea, knowing the character of his vessel, as he must have done on sueli a day; and had he consulted and relied on his barometer, he cer tainly would not have ventured out. I have been at some pains to ascertain the state, of the barometers at different localities at tliat time, and, from all the information that 1 can gather they indicated severe weather, they being ear lier in the day at an average of about 29.10, and at night as low as 28.8—an infallible indica tion of violent weather in these latitudes. The captain, unfortunately, placed no reliance on his barometer on the Sound. It is the belief of eminent seamen, among whom may lie men tioned Admiral Fitzroy, that many shins are wrecked and lives lost, by a disregaru of the premotions of tins useful instrument. Prom the laots above recited, gathered from the testi mony oT trustworthy witnesses, there can be no doubt that the Commodore was lost by rea son of her manifest unfitness to with sand a gale ol any severity in the waters which she was employed in navigating, arising partly from her age and consequent weakness partly troni the indiscretion of her captain, first in taking her to sea, and then when at sea in not making a harbor. She was also lacking in equisineuts, and therefore unseaworthy, and being navigated without a certificate, her own ers are liable to penalty for a violation of law.— The loss of this vdssel afford* a commentary on the necessity for additional and effective legis lation. The law as it now stands is totally in adequate to the enforcement of the moral obli gation of owners and others toward those who place their lives iu their hands. The Galaxy, fur February llrst is received It contains the conclusiou of the story of •‘Tristan,” which will strike most readers as somewhat of the “lame and impotent kind.” Mr. Eugene Benson contributes one of his brief, sparkling essays. It is a warm and en thusiastic eulogy of the character and writ ings of Madame Dudevant, and complemented as it is by the cooler and more critical remarks of the editor in his “Nebulae," furnishes us with a very correct estimate of the character and genius ol this “large-brained woman and large-hearted mau, self-styled George Sand.” The organization of the first colored regiment in the war is amusingly told by James Frank lin Fitts, under the title of “The Negro in Blue;” “Fenwick” is a reminiscence of Southern pioneer life; and the article on “The British Stage,” by W. Winwood Reade is very agreeably written. Professor Blot’s article oa “Horseflesh as Food,” is a lively sketch ol the efforts of a Paris horse-eating society, “composed of a number of eminent and strong-stomached gentlemen,” to intro duce the regular use of horse-flesh among all classes of society. The remaining ar ticles are “On the Stairs;” a poem by Edwin Rossiter Johnson, “Our Taxes,' by George A. Potter; “ The Parable ol Hassan, ”a poem, by H. H.; “A Day with the Painters,” by W. L. Alden; “Another Pretty Bow of Ribbon,” by Caroline Chesebro; and the Nebul®, by the Editor, containing “George Sand;” “The Tribune, Addison and Cobbett;’, “Government Courtesy to Archi tects;” “Women’s Eyes on Women;” “Mr. Swinburne.” In the next number will be commenced the new story, “Waiting for the Verdict,” by Re becca Harding Davis. Presentation of the Hamlet Medal to Edwin Booth.—At the Winter Garden Thea tre, New York, on Tuesday night, after the curtain ^td descended on the last act of “Ham let,” the audience was treated to a series of Dan ish airs, and then arising again, displayed the scene set, in the eentre of which stood a small table, upon which was a gold medal, the gift oi sundry gentlemen represented in committee, who were upon the stage, and who through Mr, William Fullerton, presented Mr. Edwin Booth witli said medal. The speeches were brief but pertinent, i. he medal is oval in form, surround ed by a serpent. There are emblematic flow ers at the base, the skull of Yorick, two toils crossed, and the raven. In the centre, Booth’s head as Hamlet; at the top the Danish crown from which hang two wreaths, on either side, of ianrel and myrtle. The pin from which the medal hangs has in the centre a headofShaks pcare, on each side, Comedy and Tragedy. The motto is: "jHalmam qui meruit firaf The superscription on the back is: “To Edwin Booth, in comineiuoratiun of tlie unprecedented run of •Hamlet,’ as ouacteJ by him in New Yarn city loi jne huudred nights.” The Paraguayan War.—Four days’ later news from Buenos Ayres (including Dec. 14,) states the report of a battle ou December 4th, proved incorrect. The great floods had invad ed the allied camps at Tuyuty, and nearly drowned out all in them. The most active preparations were going on for a battle. Mar quis Coxias, the Brazilian Commander, had re ceived orders to move on Forts Curupaity and Humaita without Selay, and it is said lie in tends to obey at all hazards. The state of de fense of these two forts is alike. Chains are placod across the channel under the water; sunken schooners impede the river; immense batteries are so placed as to rake it for a great distance, and some of these are well covered, on a level with the water, and others on the sides and summit of a hill. Four hours’ bom bardment at Curapaity produced no effect oil the fort, and the iron-clads hauled off to repair. These forts are uiso so defended landward that a force can do but little against them.— They arc planned for such a career as was Fort Fisher, but oil the supposition that in theso waters there were monitors and no invulnera ble iron-rlads. Turkish B arbarity in Crete.—A French paper—L’Aocuir National—publishes the fol lowing relation, which, it says, is attested by the Hermoepolis, a leading Greek paper, and other authorities: “Some time ago-, it will be remembered, the English steamer Assurance received on board some children, women and old men of Selinos. The eaptaiu of the ship promised to return iu a week and take those who wished to find shelter from the barbarity of the Turks. A few days afterward a frigate without colors appear ed, sure enough, on the horizon. The fugitives rushed to the sea-shore. When they hail ap proached near enough to land, the lrigate launched a long boat, over which waved the English flag. The shore was crowded witli Christians, who had hastened forth at sight of this signal of safety. At the same moment the vessel displayed the Ottoman flag and discharg ed all her guus upon the unarmed crowd. The number of victims was considerable. Before suehafact the heart throbs with indignation; public opinion claims satisfaction; the rights of humanity must be avenged; and it ought to be known whether the commander of the Turkish frigate obeyed the ferocious instincts of his race or tho instructions of his Govern ment." An Item Canrrruioq Prices iu Pnris. A Paris letter in the London Telegraph con tains information interesting to Americans who propose to visit the Exhibition: “We are getting near Exhibition time now, and of course must be prepared to pay, so I do not for one—I never stay there though— ‘hink the following prices oi the Hotel de la Vihe de Paris exliorbitant; lady and lady’s maids, slee^i and breakfast—ladies, and espec ially ladies-maids, arc, we know, troublesome, ringing the bell and taking other liberties— and all things considered, I call fifteen lraucs fir firing for one night, forty francs for beds for one night, and six francs fifty cents for can dles for one evening, rather moderate than otherwise. Anyone agreeing with mein this view can depend on these prices, as they, with other trifles, were paid on Thursday last Much lights should not be allowed to remain under a bushel, as they are truly beaoous for ladies about to travel alone.” Godey’s Lady s Book for February has an attractive table of contents. A steel engraving of “The Lost Money”; a plate ot colored fash ions; a colored cut of “Cupid sharpening his ar rcw,” about the best thing in the book; an il lustration of.“ValentinesDay”; a great number of engravings illustrating the Work depart ment, and toe usual pleasant variety in the lit erary contributions. Marion Harland concludes her first story of the year, “Entirely at Home.” In the March number will be given another, and in April will commence a capital novel ette, by the same author, running through several numbers. V Coop Stoby is told of a fellow at show, who was making conspicuos by an evident intention i y fault with everything. (Adisagr^abk EH? hv-tbe-way, with some people.) At last li’ burst forth with, “Call these’ere prize cattle? Why, they ain’t nothing to what our folks raised. M.v father raised the biggest calf of any man round our parts!” “I don’t doubt it" was the timely remark of a bystander; “and the noisiest.” The forward youth, as well may be imagined, incontinently subsided. —The sne w-slorms in New Orleans since 1800 can be counted on one’s fingers.

The case was continued to to-day, and Smith was held in the sum ol $500 lor his appearance. SUPREME JUDICIAL COURT. JANUARY TERM.—BARROWS, J, PRESIDING. Thursday.—In the Collagan will case testimony in opjtosition to the will was introduced by council lor the heirs at law. Mr. Lewis S. Hutchings was on the stand the whole day. His testimony was to the effect that Capt. C. made another will in May, 1863, and that he, the witness, was consulted in the matter by Capt. C., who informed him of his desire to make bequests to certain charitable institutions in this city. That subsequently Capt. Collagan informed the wit ness that the will hail been executed, and told him who were the subscribing witnesses. He also related several conversations he had both with Mr. and Mrs. Collagan, tending to show that a new will had l>een made, and that Mrs. C. was aware of it. The witness was subject to a searching cross examination by Mr. Pickering. MUNICIPAL COURT. JUDGE KINGSBURY PRESIDING. Thursday.—Joseph Cowan, Patrick McGlinehy and E. K.

They appealed tho cose to the Supreme Judicial Court. Two young men were fined $3 each and the costs, for drunkenness and disturbance. CITlf AFFAIRS. A special meeting of the City Council was held last evening, at which considerable busi ness was transacted. IN BOARD OK MAYOR AND ALDERMEN. John B. Lucas and Joseph Drown were drawn as petit jurors for the February term of the tJ. S. District Court. Memorial ot Portland Stone Ware Company, that in consequence of the destruction of their buildings in Westbrook, they propose to locate In Portland and praying that they may be re h ased trom taxation for five years, was referred to the Committee on Finance. The Committee on Laying out and Widen ing Streets, upon the petition of John Yeaton, reported in favor of changing the name ot Congress struct to Broadway, and introduc ed an order for that purpose. The passage of the order was opposed by Aldermen Morgan, Jack, Wliittemore, G hidings and Holden, and it was retused a passage by a unanimous vote. The Mayor presented to the Board the draft of a hill to bo presented to the Legislature en titled “An act to enable the City of Portland to aid in the re-building said city.” The hill provides that the city may issue bonds to the amount of two millious of dollars on twenty years. Said bonds to be placed in the hands of a Board of Commissioners, con sisting of four persons, to he appointed by the Mayor and Aldermen. .The Commissioners, under such general reg ulations as shall be established by the Mayor and Aldermen and said Commissioners, shall loan said bonds, or the proceeds thereof in a safe and judicious manner for the rebuilding of the city. Interest, not exceeding seven and three tenths per cent., is to be charged upon all loans made. Provision is made for the application of the loans and interest to the payment of the bonds as they shall become due and payable. Other provisions are made in the hill for filling vacancies in the Board of Commission ers, &c. Tne act is not to take effect unless accepted by two-thirds of the votes cast at Ward meet ings legally called for that purpose. The hill was referred to a Joint Special Com mittee consisting of Ald irman Morgan, Lynch and Holden, witn sued as the Common Coun cil shall join; said committee to report at an adjourned meeting of the City Council. The Common Council joined Messrs. Y’ork, Colesworthy, Marr, Gilson, Fuller, Gerrish of 6, and Phillips. The Committee on Laying out New Streets reported in favor of extending Cross street to Commercial street and uwartl damages as fol lows: To the heirs of Mary Preble $5000; to H. N. Jose $9000: to Brown Thurston $550; to Winslow & Doten Brothers, $700; to Thomp son, Richardson A Eggerston $400. The report was accepted and au order passed laying out said street. The same committee reported in favor of re laying out Canal street and changing its name to West Commercial street; and awarded the lollowing damages: To Leathe & Gore $1940; to D. W. Clark $4500; to Wm. Lindsey $1800; to-Brackett $*i0; to J. G. True & Co. $1794; to Ebeu Steele $989; to John Burk $080; to A. & S. E. Spring $958; to Portland Gas Company $850; to J. B. Blown and H. N. Jose (two lots)$3702; to T. C. Hersey $250. The report was accepted and order passed estab lishing the street and changing its name to West Commercial street. The same committee reported in favor of straightening and improving the west part of Congress street, at Libby’s corner, and award $811 damages to the estate of Charles Jones. The report was accepted and order passed straightening and improving said street at that point. [A remonstrance was received from Edward H. Daveis, Esq., for the heirs of Charles Jones against locating said street. Mr. Daveis ap peared and preseuted to the Board his reasons why the street should n .t bo altered, before the vote was taken upon the passage of the order]. The Committeeu on Judicial Proceedings re ported leave to withdraw on the petitions of Miss SS. N. Warren, Dr. K. Wright, Eliza A Farmer, and Mrs. Harriet Child. The reports were accepted. Orders Passed—To pay John Barbour $71, and to the heirs of Robert Barbour $170.50, in full compensation for damages by the widening of Hampshire street ; to pay Charlotte Merrill $300, additional, for damages for land taken in widening Sumner street; to pay $300, addi tional, 10 Franklin Heald for damages to his property in widening Sumner street; to pay George Fickett $872.16 for injury done to his building on the night of the great fire, July 4, 1800; directing the Committee on Laying out and Widening Streets, to enquire into the ex pediency of changing the name ol Middle street to Maine street, or any other appropriate name. The order for the purchase of an alarm hell came up, the other Board insisting upon their vote giving the order a passage. A committee of conference was appointed who, subsequent ly, reported iu favor of referring the ordor to the next City Council. The report was accept ed in both branches. The order naming the new square Phoenix Park came up, with the name of “Lincoln” substituted. This Board receded and concur red. So it will hear the name of Lincoln Park. The order to pay John Barbour & als., for damages in laying out Hampshire street, which was passed early in the evening, was reconsid ered and the order was recommitted with in structions to report a statement of facts. Petition of Messrs. Smith, Donnell & Co., and fifty others, merchants on Commercial street, for an increase of the police force, both day and night, on that street, was referred to tile Committee on Police. The order relating to the widening of Con gress street between Pearl and Franklin streets, came up, refused a passage in the other Board. This Board receded and concurred. Alderman Holden presented tile bill of S. B. Kroginan, for refreshments and lodgings fur nished oil the occasion of the greatfire, amount ing to $123 75, which was referred to the Com mittee on Accounts. Adjourned. Spring Street Grocery and Meat Mar ket.—S. Winslow & Co. have recently fitted up a meat market and grocery at No. 28 Spring street, which they intend to keep supplied with a large assortment of the best meats and poul try that can be obtained, together with choice family groceries. They are prepared to furnish any article usually found in such an establish ment, of the very best quality and at the low est living price. ’ Housc-kocpers in that vicini ty will find no difficulty in obtaining anything in their line, promptly delivered and warrant ed to be of the first quality. Those who are looking around for something nice for dinner cannot fail to find it at Winslow’s. Look in and see their display of beef and turkeys. Prospect of a New Theatre.—It is un derstood that several business men of Portland are disposed to look favorably upon the pro ject of building a modest theatre, suited to the wants of this community, and are ready to join in such an enterprise. Two lots are spoken of—one near the head of Cross street, the other just below Tolman place on Congress street. Of the two the latter is much to be preferred. We hope the undertaking will be carried through. Liquor Seizures.—The Deputy Marshals yesterday seized small quantities of liquor in the shops kept by Samuel Robbins on Clark street; Samuel Hague on Salem street; Pat rick Ward on York street, and Thomas Blake on Washington street. There is one more place, where the officers are satisfied that liq uor is sold, which they will probably visit to day. M. L. A. Lectures.—The next lecture be fore the Mercantile Library Association is to be given this evening at Mechanic’s Hall, b\ Geo. William Curtis, Esq. It is perhaps unneces sary to say that tickets—and seats too—must be secured early, as the hall will undoubtedly be filled to its utmost capacity. Housekeepers and others are informodthat the best quality of dairy butter cau be pur chased at 38 rent1 per pound, best cheese at 18 cents, and prime lard at 15 cents at the Butter Market, No. 8 Portland street, near Preble street. Wellcome prepares the most valuable pain curer we ever had in our store.” So says W. P. Phillips. Those who use it refuse all others, jan7dlawtf '■’he Pablic Square* Mk. Editor; My man, Patrick Bludan ouiih, wiahes me to convey to the city fathers wlm voted “Phoenix” as the best name for our park, his most hearty thanks, inasmuch as lie feels, that by naming it after the famous Dub lin park, they intended a graceful compli ment to our citizens ot Hibernian origin, for the timid bashl'ulness displayed by thorn after our great fire, in urging their claims tor relief; or, as Pat more concisely said,—'“Bedad, an’ werrent wc all horrent out? an’divil a siut did we git at all, at all, jist—the spalpeens!” He also says that thcro is no mistako about the bird; for, again quoting his own rich, touching vernacular; ‘ Begorra! an’many the dark night itis me own two eyes has counted millions, all as big as gooses, a-restiug on the fence right foruinst tho park, and ov’ry mother’s son on one leg, at that—all iu their iligant pay-green feathers of red, white and bine, singing nor handsomer than the bloody British Suortin gale!" Yours respectfully, Q. Z. P- S.—Patrick wishes all our citizens to un derstand that the proper pronunciation of the bird (or park) is “Faynix.” Q. Z. Mr. Editor,—If the Park wasn’t encloeod, it would he a Square; if the Square was large enough it would he a Park. I take pleasure iu adding to the confusion by suggesting that Mall is the correct designation for our little grass nlat, which one of these days will un doubtedly become “a shaded walk.” Suppose, then, we call it a Mall, or a Square, or a Park, or anything else we choose; though it isn’t a park any more than I am—a park of artillery. The next thing to be determined is its name. The city government has set the example of naming the enclosure after a distinguished man—John Phoenix, author of various instruc tive and entertaining works. I rather like the principle, though I object to its application, as Ensign Stcbbins was in favor of the Maine law but opposed to its enforcement. What has Phoenix done for Portland? Ho never even paid a tax here. Let us name the Square after somebody we know. Why not call it Willis Square, for instance?

Tilton and McFarland’s Fire Proof Safes.—The Fire Proof Safes made by Mesrs. Tilton & McFarland at No. 11(1 Sudbury street, Boston, proved eminently sale and satisfactory in the severe test given to them in the great tire in this city in September 1865, that our cit izens interested in saving their books and pa pers from lire have very generally purchased the iron sales manufactured by Messrs. Tilton & McFarland. These safes have very thick walls and are furnished with all the modern conveniences and protections against fire and force. We publish in another column the names of persons and firms in this city who have purchased these sates and we learn that these are all the safes which have been brought here since the fire, with but four exceptions.— This is a masterly record in favor of the Tilton & McFarland sales. It gives the opinion of men who were warned by the tongue of fire to be careful in their selection. Such testimo ny is ol great value and is well calculated to inspire the highest confidence of the people at large in the excellence of these safes as places of secure deposit against the flames of fire and the forces of wicked men. The invariable practice among business men in this city is to deposit their money in the banks, where thieves do not break through and steal, but their books and valuable papers they keei> secure in Tilton & McFarland’s safes.— Kennebec Journal. Periodicals.—Harpers’ Magazine and Go dey’s Lady’s Book for February, have been re ceived at the bookstores of Messrs Bailey & Noyes, Exchange street, C. R. Chisholm & Brother 307 Congress street, Augustus Rob inson, 325 Congress street, Short & Loriug, corner of Free and Centre streets and at the periodical depots of Messrs. Fessenden Broth ers Lancaster Hall and Chisholm's at the Grand Trunk Depot. Accident.—Mr. William H. Foye, of the firm of Foye, Coffin & Swan, met with a severe accident yesterday afternoon. While walking through their new office on Exchange street Mr. Foye stepped into the hot air pipe, the reg ister of which had been left open. He sustain ed a severe sprain ol the side, and it was sup posed two ribs had started. He was taken to his residence and was attended to by Dr. Fitch. Gas.—The want of gas tor half au hour last evening was owing to the main pipe at the foot of India street being brokeD about five o’clock by blasting for the sewer. The gas had to be shut off' until the pipe could be temporarily re paired. Akers has just finished in clay a fine bust ol Collector Washburn. It is said to be one of his completes! achievements, both as a likeuess and as a work of art. Go and see it at the stu dio on Middle street. The Levee at Lincoln Hall, Munjoy, given under the auspices of the ladies of the Con gress Street M. E. Church, last Tuesday even ing, was a decided success and reflects much credit upon the ladies of that Society. The Tribune Almanac for 18(17 can be found at the bookstore of A.

To Tnu Editor of the Press: The voters of Augusta voted yesterday on the proposition to loan its credit, by the issue of bonds to the amount of $250,000, to develope the water power of the Ifennebec. The ques tion excited considerable interest. The friends of the measure were active and the effort prov ed successful. There was a strong opposition, however, represented not so much by numbers as by the influence and wealth which it con trolled. The caution which has hitherto char acterized the business men of our State, hin ders a ready endorsement of that which seems necessary for the success of the present under taking. A new feature has been introduced in connection with this measure—“to enter upon, and use such lands as may be necessary for the full developement of the water power.” The policy was opposed by an able speech from Mr. Bhepley, of Portland, in the House Saturday last. The friends of the measure admitted that Mr. Shepley wa3 right in theory, but the appli cation was unfavorable to their interest. The House by a large majority sustained the inter est of the Augusta enterprise. The interest which the friends of this measure in Augusta take in this matter has created considerable sensitiveness as has been noticed in the debates that have taken place in both branches. They were very tenacious but anxious that their pol icy should commend itself to the unanimous judgement of both branches. And they have succeeded very well. Quill. Mlnlc Temperance Convention. Augusta, Jan. 24,18C7. To the Editor of the I*bes9 : The attendance on the State Temperance Convention held to-day is quite largo. I notice among the number several who have been lor years interested in the cause. Hon. Seth Scarn mau, ot Scarborough, Hon. Nelson Diugly, Jr., of Lewiston, Joshua Nye of Walerville. Port land sends quite a delegation, John W. Mun ger, Joseph B. Hall, Frederick, N. Dow, E. A. Sawyer, John B. Thorndike and others. Gor Aam sends Stephen Hinkley, Jr. and John A. \Viuship. Other towns in Cumberland coun ty seem to be well represented. There seems to be a general wish to alter the Maine Liquor law, so that those who sell liquor unlawfully, shall be imprisoned on the first offence. It is also urged by some, that there should be a class ot officers designated, whose particular duty it shall be to enforce the law. The Con vention is held at Granite Hall, commencing at 10 o clock this forenoon. A sub-committee from the Legislative committee, on alteration of the “Liquor Law,” will meet any committee that the Convention may see tit, to appoint to confer on the subject matter of alteration ot the law. Messrs. Dennison of the Senate, and Berry of the House, are on the committee.— _ Nix. A Sprightly Veteran.—The Worcester Daily Spy tomes to us this week in an enlarg ed and improved form. The Spy, which is now under the control of Mr. Baldwin, member of Congress for the district in which it is publish ed, is an ably edited paper, very fearless and out-spoken in its championship of the right. The weekly Spy is the oldest newspaper in New England, and one of the oldest in the country,, having been established in 1770, but it shows in its vigorous life none of the effects of age. We are happy to not,' these new eviden. ces ot a prosperity proportioned to its merits. Personal—Mr. J. M. Knight, formerly a contributor to the Press, has removed to Ano ka, Minn., and bought half of the newspaper, the Anoka Press, printed at that county seat, Under his charge the paper will undoubtedly be of value to the people of the county. It is devoted chiefly to agriculture, TI1E STATE. —Wednesday morning an Irishman and a negro were arrested in West Auburn on suspi cion of being concerned in the recent murder there, but both were discharged next day, no reasonable ground for the suspicion appearing. A new post office has been established at Frost's Corner in Norway, as wo learn from a correspondent in that town. It is called Nor way Centre post office, and Wui. S. Benson is postmaster. —Tho Bath Times informs us that a tire in Wiscasset on the night of the 21st, destroyed the poor house in that town. It was occupied by quite a number of the town poor, some of whom were among the sufferers in the tire of October last. They were all removed in safe ty, and unfortunately no other building took fire. —The Eastport Sentinel says that Capt. F A. Prince has purchased in New York the new and fast steamer “Belle Brown” to run on the St. Croix next season. Passen gers will be able to make one trip up or down the St. Croix in about two hours. —The Bangor Times announces the death of Charles Lamson, Esq., at Belmont on the 18tl , of consumption. Mr. Lamson was the founder of the Bridgton Reporter, and was subsequent ly one of the editors of the Portland Evening Courier; also for a time he was engaged on the Portland Advertiser. Maine Christian Convention. TO THE PASTORS AND BRETHREN OE TOE CHURCIIES OF MAINE: The present is a time of great expectation and hope among many earnest Christians in all the Cluirohes of Christ in Maine, uml the question is olten asked, What can Is' done to awaken a deeper interest for Christ in the hearts of His people? A free interchange of opinions and experi ence in regard to the various questions of prac

tical Christian effort, between pastors and brethren of all the churches, is eminently de sirable, that all may know and fully compre hend their duties to others, and how they can do theso duties most faithfully and acceptably. TheWorkofthe Churches;—Home Missions; —The efforts to spread the Gospel among the poor and neglected;—The Sunday School:— The efforts for the suppression of Intemper ance ;— Home Evangelization;—these questions and the duties of Christians as connected with them are of sufficient importance to call for united prayer and consultation. To this end, the Portland Young Men’s Christian Association, after conferring with many pastors and laymen of experience have deeideil to call a Maine Christian Convention. We therefore cordially invite the Christian Churches of Maine to send delegates of pastor and one or more laymen to meet in convention with our Association, at Portland, on Thurs day and Friday, February 7th and 8th, at the Chestnut St. Cliureh. The Convention will assemble at teu o’clock. No Credentials will be required. Andrew J. Chase, Pres. P. Y. M. C. Association. Wm. M. Marks, Geo. L. Kimball, Elias Chase, E. P. Smith, N. P. Jaqucs, U.

The following Railroad Companies have agreed to furnish free return tickets to dele gates attending the Convention: P. 8. & P, Eastern, Boston and Maine, Poitland and Rochester, Portland and Kennebec. It is con fidently expected that the Grand Trunk and Maine Central Railroads will make the same arrangement. Delegates will purchase regu lar tickets for Portland, and free returns good tor 8tli, 9th, and 10th, will be issued by the Sec retary of thoCouvention. Papers throughout the State -are requested to copy. Waabiuglou Hewn. The committee charged last sessiou with the duty of examining into the complicity of Jeffer son Davis in the assassination, have recently re-opened the question, and have been consid ering the expediency and practicability of ex amining John II. Surratt. The Secretary of War, the Judge Advocate General, and the Secretary ol State have been consulted iu the premises. The members of the committee are very reticent about their conclusions, but there is reason for believing that they have not yet determined to take Surratt’s evidence. The evening organ of the Democratic party continues its incendiary harangues to the op position, and closes its leading article to-day in the following words: “To avert being reduced into a condition of perfect slavery, perhaps Bold like negroes, cer tainly liable as we have been to be imprisoned without and murdered with process of law, the Deuiocratic party must organize itself into an army, with the discipline aud drill of an army drawn up before the enemy. It is absolutely necessary. If wo do so at once we can save the republic. If we do uot, then farewell to all free government. We appeal to Democrats ail over the country to heed our warning.” The Posimaster Generul will, it is under stood, ask the Attorney General how far the , recent decision of the Supreme Court in tile testoatli cases applies to his department; that is, whether it relieves persons from disabilities bv reason of participation iu rebellion, and en ables them to qualify as postmasters on taking the oath of office administered before the war. —Dispatch to Boston Advertiser.
