'I lii* IJovei-iior’" isnlnry* Some passages from tho debate in the House last Wednesday, ou the Senate amendment ’ raising the salary of the Governor to S3000, will bo found interesting if not instructive.— We copy from the Kennehec Journal: Mr. Tobey, of Athens—Mr. Speaker, I do not arise li re in my place for the pnruose of malting what is usually termed a speech, or to to discuss the subject under consideration at any considerable length, tori am uiraccustom cd to this kind of business and am well aware that it does not lie within the compass of my faculties so to do. But, sir, 1 stand here from | a sense of duty which 1 feel that I owe to my- j self and to mv constituents, to oppose the pass age of this bill in concurrence, and to enter my solemn protest against this species ol legis lation. .i.i» X believe, sir, we were not elected to come here for the purpose of creating large and ex travagant salaries, and thereby burden the a'riddlv over taxed people of tho State with umieeessury and unwarranted ouuttyd.— Sir, v> bile 1 will admit that the salary ol the Governor is inadequate to the ottice of chief magistrate of this State, and that it should be raised to some extent, yet, Mr. Speaker, it does not follow that we should goto tho other ex treme, and double it at this time, when the State and municipalities of the State together owe irmn twelve to twenty millions of dollars. And, sir, what have we to pay that enormous sum with? I will refer you. sir, to the State Treasurer’s report for an answer to this in quiry, when he tells us that the industrial pro ceeds of the people is the only resource, and I lor one, do not wish to tax them to the utmost of their ability, and thereby create a greater desire on the part of unworthy politicians to liil the chair of State. How, Mr. Sp ‘alter, let its compare notes anil see how we stand rolat ve!y With o her States. Tike, if you please, the New England States, leaving out ourown State, and we find tao av enge salary of the five States to he fifteen hundred and twenty dollars as their Governors’ salaries, three of which pay one thousand dol lars each, one threo thousand live hundred dol lars, and one, one thousand one hundred dol lar* These statistics I have taken from the manual upon our desks, and now, sir, are we so much in advance of them as to double the av erage amouut they pay? I, in all honesty, think not, and I do believe that the tax payers of my district think so too, and the people of tho State will hold us all to a strict account ability for our doings in this direction.— Mr. Speaker were I to follow out my owu personal loelings in regard to this matter, and regardless of other tilings, and our present be loved and heroic Governor were to receive its benefits, I should be likely to vote as high as any one of the honorable members of this House; lie sir. was the first and the only candidate of Somerset County in the State convention at Bangor, and 1 had tho honor of being one of the delegates from said County.— But, Sir, my judgment tells me it is not right, and therefore I cannot vote in that direction, and shall not. I, Mr. Speaker, as well as your self feel proud of the mottoof our beloved State and rejoice at her record? Yet Sir, I do not myself wish to take the lead in expending the people’s money in a profligate manner, ami thereby set that example ior other States to follow. Sir, X wish to call the attention of this House to the noble sentiments of our pa triotic Govenor when speaking of a monu ment to commemorate the virtues of our dead heroes. He says:‘‘But when so many widows and orphans are crying for bread, and soinnnv wounded and over-worn are lying patiently ny, nopeiess 01 any active part, m the country's rejoicing’ I for one feel tnat our first duty is to theBe. I sir heartily indorse these philanthropic sentments, and I do be lieve this House will also indorse them. Mr. Titcomb of Augusta, spoke at some length in support of the amendment and the bill. He read a list of the Statesand the salar ies paid to the Governor of each. In one or two instances the amount was different from tha^ given in the remarks of the gentleman from Athens. In Massachusetts the salaiy is ^MOO, having been increased to that snminthe year 180-1. in thirty-four States the aggregate amount is $11X1,683,33, aud the average is $2y61, 27. There are some considerations to be brought into the account in connection with this state ment. The salary of the Governor of Califor nia, $10,000, is payable in gold. Many States have Lieutenant Governors whose animal sal ary' or per diem pay should be charged to this account. InNew York the total expeu-e of the Executive Department is $17,400, including rent of and taxes on the executive mansion, private Secretary, Clerks, Messengers, &c. The sa ary of the Governor of Illinois is but *1500 as in Maine, but this is doubtless owing to a Con stitutional restriction which goes further than n similar provision in the Constitution ot Maine, and forbids the Legislature ever to in crease it. He mentioned tacts to show the im possibility of a Governor of Illinois living on the salary allowed, in the city of Springfield. On motion of Mr. JPeikins of Kennebunk port, it was ordered that! the vote on the amendment shall betaken by yeas and nays. Mr Brown ol Haoipoen, spotte against the bill. He thought the Legislature should act just as the people uuder similar circumstances would. The people do not pay high salaries.— They do not pa> their ministers well and he himself hail become somewhat unpopular for endeavoring in his own town to obtain an in crease of the salary of a minister. He did not agree with the gentleman from Augusta, (Mr. Titcamb) in the idea that the men he had men tioned had gone away from Maine because the salary of public officers was not sufficient.— They went from oilier motives. He had never known an instance ol any one refusing to serve as Governor because the salary was not sufficient, and be did not believe that any one hail ever so relused. He had heard no com plaints that the Governors of Maine were not honorable, statesmanlike and in every way worthy to ue its Chief Magistrates, notwith standing the allegod mengerness of the sala ry. W8ife denying the force of bringing other States as a criterion for us, he had been unable to find any authority for the figures of the gen tlemau from Augusta. His authority in mak ing a somewhat similar table was the Ameri can Almanac for 1864. "NVe should remember too, that prices are now falling, and the rela tive value of the salary will be all the time be coming greater. The main question lie conceived to be how the people would have us voteou this question, and he vvg*. very certain they would not favor this increase. The usual habit of business men is to get all the service they can out of their helpers and to get it as cheaply as possible.— They will ceitainly not thank us lor increasing salaries when we already get for what we pay, so able officers as we now have. The object of the Republican party is to follow out the wish es of the people, aud if it aband ns and betrays the people, another party will arise which will be forced to do so. Air. Hale ol Ellsworth, thought this matter should be looked at in as hroad a light as pos sible, and while on the one hand we should avoid running into any extravagance, on the other hand we should Dc willing and anxious to pay a fair price for the labor we exact. It is objected to this proposition that it will add to the already heavy burdens of the people. It is true that it will add something to taxa tion, hilt so very little as to be scarcely percep tible. It is distributing the paltry sura of fif teen hundred dollars among all the people and all the wealth of the State He hoped to see many a governor chosen from the ranks of those with only moderate means. He wanted to have the privilege of voting for ucli without feeling that he was im posing too great a burden upon them. It had been said that prices are falling. He bad not seen any signs of it yet, and believed that we must expect high prices of all articles of ne cessity for a generation to come. M -. Brown of Hampden spoke in further op position to the bill. Mr. Hutchinson of Harmony suggested that the passage of the bill might be uu injury to the members of the House, and to the party the most of them represented in coining elec tions. Air. Sheplcy of Portland felt called upon to defend his own constituents and those of the gentleman from Hampden, front the unjust imputations cast upon them by bint. He be lieved that the people wruld say, if this ques tion were presented to them that the laborer is worthy of his hire. His colleagues from the city of Portland and himself were unanimous in support of this bill, and their constituents will bo called upoa to pay one eighth of the whole amount. The business men and people of Portland pay a fair rate of wages for a lair day’s work. It makes uo difference whether their employees he rich or poor. He believed it was the santo in Hampden and all over the Stat'. They are honest and just, aud they scorn meanness. He thought the gentleman lrom Hampden misrepresented his oonstitu cuts when he feared that they would reproach him for compensating fair work with fair Mr. Brown of Hampden, called Mr. Sbepley to order. He did not make any such state ment. Mr. Sbepley said that ho thought the gentle man complained ot becoming unpopular be cause he advocated fair wages for his minister, seriously, simple question was whether the present salary was adequate, and if not to what amount should it be raised? It is admitted tu.it no pi? 1*30n without a private fortune can support himself respectably as (ioveruor with the pri son; salary. There is not a mau in the state suitable to be Governor of Maine whose services are not worth more to private individ uals that the State pays its Chief Magistrate.— Coporations pay more to their agents, hanks mor i lo tiieir cashiers, many merchants more to their book-keepers than the salary otour Governor. A parish in Portland has called in vain tor a pastor during the past year, offering 25 per cent, higher salary than the amount pro poses! by the auieudmeut. If the Legislature should refuse thus to increase the salary, he could go louud in Portland, and in ten min utes raise the deficiency by subscription. The mechanics would tax themselves to make up too amount, rather than let it remain as it is. "i, “,aJ°nty of the people of Maine are not linin'11,?,11' , do not wish our Governor to tw li,.^?

AIUIEST OF THE HT'sPECTEO MURDEBBH. It is believed that at last the murderer of the unfortunate women in West Auburn has been discovered and arrested. The most im portant facts in relation to the matter appear to be as follows. On Thursday, Jan. 17th, at about 41** a man supposed to be a Frenchman, called at a house in West Minot, about <J miles from the point where the mur der was coimnited, and begged for something to eat. A lady opened the door, to whom he represented that he had travelled 25 miles, and was faint with hunger. Noticing blood stain s on wrists and wrist-bands, and shocked at his brutal appearance, she asked him to leave and declined to give him food. He persisted, and was at length, ad mitted to the house. He nto like a famished man, everything that was put before him, and afterwards left and went on. He had conic from the direction of West Auburn. From this point he proceeded ou the road to Minot Corner, and is next heard from at Mr. W at son’s a mile from where he took his lunch.— Here he begged to stay all night and his re quest was granted. He was observed at one time to turn his back toward a man who came i nto the house, as though he did not wish his face to be seen. The family wishod him to go to bed, but he refused, slept on a mattress on the kitchen floor, and refused to remove his clothes The blood stains were noticed here also. Fri day night ho stopped at Cyrus King's, some two miles from the house where he spent Thursday night. Those facts becoming known a posse of offic cers at once set out in pursuit. The particulars of the pursuit and capture we copy from the Lewiston Journal: Deputy Ktcn of Mechanic Falls left this city at 21'. M.. Thursday and proceeded to West Minot. On the way his horse ran away and broke up the sleigh, but he got another sleigh and pushed on, reaching Minot Corner in about anhour. Here he obtained a faint des cription of the supposed murderer. Pushing to these points where he stopped I Thursday and Friday nights he obtained more full details of his appearance, tracked him, night after night, to Mr. Tobie’s in Now Glouces ter J2 miles from King’s. Hence he tracked him to Gloucester Comer,where he was ably assisted by the people of that section, till, at last, he pounced upon a man precisely answering the description of the West Minot party. The prisoner attempted to resist Deputy Keen's arrest but was secured without much diffi culty, and at once brought to Auburn, and at 7 1-2 o’clock was thrown into the first cell of the lower tier in Auburn jail. Ho was very hungry and ate with avidity. The prisoner is a foreigner and gives conflict ing accounts of himself. He is a most strange and brutal mau, iu appearance. He is about 4 feet 10 inches in height, but muscular, thickly put together, weighing perhapB 120 pounds. He was clothed in rags when discovered, but on reaching the jail, the prisoner was immedi ately stripped and decent clothing put upon i him. He has a most beastly looking face, and a norm complexion. He has not been told any thing concerning the crime. His eye is small and dark, and rolls uncomfortably in its socket, it being seemingly impossible tor him to fix it on any point. His hair is dark and curly and the top of bis head is bald. His head ie'large, and his face is concealed among Bhaggy whis kers, and his mouth by a dirty moustache. He is evidently a powerful man, and has one of the most wicked eyes we have ever seen. The prisoner talks mostly in negatives and affirmatives, and hardly opens bis mouth when he speaks, bo that it is not easy to understand him. But in a somewhat prolonged interview with him he stated the following: I came from Vergennes, France; I am 40 years old; speak French; lived six months in Mon treal; lived two years in New York; have been walking through this country cutting wood; have no frieDds in this country; my name is Charles Fretchie; have been in these parts two weekB, looking for work: never been in Lewis ton; work in one place or another; don’t know the place; don’t know who I worked for in Montreal; have travelled 25 or 23 miles in two weeks; snow so deep, hard walking; haven’t any money; man didn’t pay me that 1 worked for; don’t know what I’m arrested for; have brothers and sisters and father and mother in Switzerland; had a letter from them a long time ago when I was at St. Victor, C. E.; don’t know where they were in Switzerland. This account was got out of him by a s> ries of qnes he avoiding conversation as much as pos sible. we then began to hint darkly at the murder and here his uneasiness, excitement and want of self-command were such as to be most mark ed. llis answers and conversation were a mere mass of confessions and denials, but we give substantially the conversation as it passed: “What did you strike that woman with the chair for?” “I didn’t do it.” “Didn’t you see that other woman who saw you strike her?” “No; dikn’t see the other one;” and he trem bled so violently that we asked him if be was cold. "O, no, I’m not cold.” “What made you strike the woman with the chair?” “Me no strike no-ting.” “Didn’t you call at a house where some wo mei^were early one morning?” “Was it before or after the snow?” “Can’t tell.” “Didn’t you build up a fire after you went in tolthe house where the women were?” “No, me no build an> fire.” “After you went in there what did you strike the women with a chair for?” “No, me no do it.” “Before yon went to the house where the women were, didn’t you call at another house and ask a man to let you in, and didn’t you try to Shove up the window?” “Yes, I asked man to let me in—me don’t know no-ting about it.” He was then plied with further questions as to why he struck the woman with the chair, when he got very excited and talked in an in coherent manner. “Wliat did you do on the day of the storm?” “Walked on the road.” “Wh«r«9” “Don’t know the place.” Here he commenced shaking again, hut be declined putting a blanket over him, and said he was not cold. He folded his arms and drew them together, rolling himself up in a wild and painful manner. His livid eyes wandered all over the cell, wildly, and rolled in their sock ets like bails of fire. A more terrible-looking object in human shape we never saw before. That this man was in the vicinity of the mur der at the time of its perpetration is certain, his whole appearance is suspicious, but the condition of his clothing furnishes terrible evi dence against him. It was a mass oi rags, and the stains of blood upon it were unmistakeable. It will be remembered also that a man tried to get into Mr. Libby’s house early on the morn ing of the murder. This man’s tracks in the snow are about the size of the prisoner’s boot, and what is important, they appeared to be tracks of a hoot which had no heels. The pris oner’s boots have no heels. Mailers at the Slate Capital. [Correspondence of t. e Prcaa.i Acocsta, Maine, Jan. 25,1807. The assumption of the war debt of cities ami towns is one of the questions which is now ex citing public attention. The large committee appointed by the Legislature had its first meet ing last evening. There was a variety of opin ions expressed by the members that composed it. The friends of the measure feel confident that some plan may be reached that will secure the passage of a bill equalizing these debts. Some towns are 28 per cent, in debt ou tlmir valuation—others only 2 per cent. The ques is an important one, and meets with no favor from the larger cities and towns. The success of any measure at this session may bo considered doubtful. The following order was introduced and passed the Senate yesterday, on motion of Mr. Robie: Ordered, Tliat there be printed 350 conies of an abstract of the returns of the cities and towns of this State, showing the financial con dition thereof as appear from a communica tion from His Excellency, Samuel Cony, late Governor ot the State, under date of January 18, 1806; also that the Adjutant General be di rected to furuish the same information as lie may have on hand, in conformity to an order of the House of Representatives passed Jan uary 16, 1866, or any other information that may be deemed necessary by the committee on assumption of municipal war debt by the State for a full understanding of the subject matter before said committee and that the usual number be printed. The Temperance meeting last night was very large, and there was a general feeling in favor of immediate and earnest action in favor of al teration of the liquor law, of a stringent char- j aeter. The meeting of Committees continued to-day. The loss of the 83000 salary for our Governor by the House is generally regretted. _ . Quill. I'p Coonirr.

[FROM OUR SPECIAL REPORTER.] Augusta, Jan. 24, 1867. Your reporter in company with a numerous delegation from the various Temperance organ izations in and about Portland, left that city on Wednesday, P. M. via the P. & K. Railroad, in care of the veteran Conductor Mitchell, to at- ■ tend the State Temperance Convention to be held in Augusta to-day. The effects of the re cent storms were apparent in the numerous deep drifts thro’ which we passed and in the oc casional stoppages wo were oompeiled to make, while the iron horse drove the snow plow through the snow banks, still forming by the action of the wind. We arrived at the Capital somewhat late, but in season for a capital sup per at the Cushnoc House. Thursday morning at 10 o’clock the Conven tion was called to order by B. F. Tollman, Esq., ot Richmond, and Nelson Ilingley, Esq., of Lewiston, was chosen temporary Chairman. Prayer was offered by Rev. Mr. Woodhnll.of Bangor. The preliminary organization was completed and the usnal committees were appointed. The forenoon session was occupied in this business, and the permanent organization was perfected by the choice of Governor J. L. Chamberlain as President, with a list of Vice Presidents and Secretaries. AFTEBNOON SESSION. The Convention came to order at 2 o’clock, and shortly after Gov. Chamberlain was intro duced and received with great enthusiasm. On taking the Chair he addressed the Convention in sulistance as follows: GOVERNOR CHAMBERLAIN S SPEECH.. It was niy design prior to my knowledge of the honor jon have conferred upon me, to iden tify myself with this Convention, and take such a part as 1 might be aide in the good work in which you are engaged. Though not actively engaged in any temperadcc organization, I do profess that this cause lies near iny heart, and I claim a right to participate in your delibera tions by virtue of that clause of the call for this meeting which includes all who would Btay the tide of evil resulting from the vice you combat. This cause has my warmes sympathy, and to its progress I would leud all of aid which may be in my power. It lias' been suggested that inasmuch as the measures coming before ibis Cohvention may be presented to the Legislature for enactment as law,I might feel a delicacy in taking part with you; but even if it be understood that I am here, in my capacity as Chief Magistrate of the State, I do,not shrink from the responsibility. I have a duty as well as a right to identity my self with this movement—for it is a movement, not a dead issue, tor what nobler care, what more imperative demand rests upon the mag istrate than that he do all he may to rescue his people from so great au evil as that wrought by intemperance? 1 understand as well as you that but for this our prisons would not need enlarging. The Governor then commented briefly upon the results to the material welfare of the State, remarking that it becomes all good and true citizens of the State to identify themselves with this movement and lend their aid in stop ping so great a drain upon our money re sources. Governor C.’s address was received with fre quent and loud applause, and it will be ex ceedingly gratifying to the friends of Temper ance throughout the State to And him so fully identified with them in thought and feeling. A letter was read from Judge Davis of Port land, expressing his regret at his inability to be present, and giving the following statistscs in relation to the enforcement of the law in your city during the past six months: ‘ The whole number of prosecutions lias been 174 Discharged, 8 Amount of fines paid, $3G00 Two persons have paid 7 fines each. Three “ “ “5 “ Pour “ “ “3 “ “ One “ “ “ 6 Seven “ “ “ 4 “ These seventeen persons have paid seventy five fines and still continne the traffic. Nu merous others have been fined several times and have not ceased their violation of the law. Prom these facts Judge D. claims that the law should be so amended as to punish its viola tions by imprisonment. The committee appointed to present amend ments to the present Liquor Law reported, and after debate and amendment tho report was adopted. It asks for the amendment of Sec. 7, b> making the penalty lor a single sale of liquor, $20 and costs and imprisonment for sixty days for the first offence, and for the sec ond the same" fine and imprisonment for four months; of the 14th section (search and seizure clause), by making the pena'ty $20 and costs and sixty days imprisonment for each oficnce, the party to give bonds to abide the sentence oi the Supreme Corrt, and also bonds not to sell while the case is pending. It also asks for the establishment of a State Constabulary similar to that in operatiou iu Massachusetts. RVEJfISO 6KSSIOK. In tlio evening an informal public hearing before the Legislative Special Committee on the Amendment of the Liquor Law, was had in Granite Hall. The hall was well filled and the matter at issue was ably presented by the gentlemen appointed by the Convention. Re marks were made by Messrs. Hunger and Ste vens of Portland, Revs. J. S. Fletcher of Bath #and D. B. Randall of Augusta, and Messrs. Dingley and Cilley of Lewiston. Without at tempting a report of their remarks, it may be said that their purport was to show. 1st, that in cities and large towns the law is not efficient to stop the sale of intoxicating drinks, 2d, that to make the penalty imprisonment for the first offence, would accomplish this object by the aid of, 3d, a State Constabulary who should not be affected by considerations of local poli tics or private revenge. These points were el oquently presented by the speakers. The Convention adjourned to meet tomorrow morning. The attendance upon the Conven tion has not been large, owing to the bad con dition of the roads and the difficulties of travel but it has been more than made up in energy and enthusiasm for its lack in numbers.— Whether the Legislature shall graut the amendments prayed for or not, it cannot be ! doubted that much good has been accomplish ed in awakening a renewed interest in the cause. FRIDAY MOBNINO. The Convention resumed its sesion at nine o’clock, Aseties of resolutions was adopted, of which the following is a synopsis: Tlie first recites that the Temperance men of Maine arc neither few nor feeble; that during the rebellion this issue was in abeyance, hut that the imperative demand is that no effort should ho spared to renew the war. The second terms slavery and rumselling twin elements of barbarism, gnd expresses a desire that united in life they may not be di viced in death. The third recites the loyalty of the Temper ance men of the State. The fourth pledges fho Convention to vote for none but Temperance men for office. The fifth asks lor amendment of liquor law, and for the establishment of a State Constabu lary. Measures were adopted looking to the organ ization of a State Temperance Alliance. Adjourned Luther. THE STATE. —The Biddeford Union says Mr. James Goodwin left Kennebunk village on Thursday of the great storm, in the first part of the evening, and has not since been heard from. It is supposed he is covered in the snow. A Mr. Wormwood was found the same evening with his team in a snow drift, between Kennebunk village and the de pot, and must have perished had ho not been discovered. —Postmaster Randall has appointed the fol lowing postmasters in this State: R. E. Rider at South Albion, vice T. Cochran, resigned; F. Ingall at Howland, vice S. Davis, resigned; B. S. Starbird at Bowdoin, vice J. Tarr resign ed; J. D. Hill at West Moscow, vice J. Barrett, resigned. —The nomination of Gen. James A. Hall, Collector of Customs at Waldoboro has been confirmed by the Senate. —The Brunswick Telegraph, referring to the petition for Railroad consolidation present ed to the Legislature, says: “We oppose this scheme tooth and nail, except tho Railroads will compromise their charters, and concede to the Legislature the right to regulate their pas senger and freight iares. And even then we are almost inclined to oppose such consolida tion. Consolidation will reduce expenses. But consolidation will build up another Cam den and Amboy Railroad, the curse of the whole travelling community—every passenger being taxed to run that one-horse State of New Jersey will build up another Baltimore and Washington Railroad,—passengers on this being taxed to run the State ot Maryland. If it if. going to cost Maine people six cents per mile to ride in the cars, it is not well to put all power into the hands of the people who own railroad stocks. We do not oppose rail roads; we believe in them—the good they do. Wo don’t want them to be absolutely our mas ters. —The Bangor papers contain accounts of a murderous assault committed in that city on Wednesday evening. Mrs. Hugh McDonald was found in tho street with her skull frac tnred and marks of brutal usage on her porsou. She cannot survive. No clue has been yet been found to indicate who the assassin was. The Whig says it is believed that the villain mistook Mrs. Macdonald for some o'her per son, and thus perpetrated an awful crime by mistake for the victim is a very respectable middle-aged woman, not known to have an enemy, and in no ways likely to have been in any troublesome affair, PORTLAND AND VICINITY.

The case of Michael Smith, for pursuing the busi ness of a retail liquor dealer without taking out a United States Internal Revenue license, was taken up by the Commissioner yesterday. Two witnesses I testified that they had purchased liquor in his shop. Smith brought five witnesses to |tcstify that they were acquainted with his shop and his business, and that they never knew of his selling liquor. At the request of Smith, who said he could bring evidence that tho liquor sold, if any was sold, was without hift knowledge, consent or approval, tho ex amination was postponed to Saturday. SUPREME JUDICIAL COURT. JANUARY TERM.—BARROWS, J, PRESIDING. Friday.—In the Coliagan will oase, the cross ex amination of Mr, L. S. Hutchins, who was on the stand all tho day Thursday, was concluded. Ambrose Ghidings, one of the subscribing witness es to tbo will mentioned by Mr. Hutchins, testified that he witnessed said will in Mr. Grover's store on Congress street. The deposition of Moody F. Walker, another sub scribing witness to said will, was read. Mr. Grover, the other witness to the will being un well, the minute of his testimony, as taken at the last term of Court was read by consent oi counsel on both sides. Mrs. Mary J. Bailey was the next witness called by the heirs at law. She testified that at Mrs. Collagan’s request she prepared some paste, and that she saw Mrs. C. pasting some pieces of paper together, which witness was satisfied was the will now in question. Counsel ibr the heirs at law here rested, and coun sel tor apindlaut introduced rebutting tectimony.— The depositions of Moses Kimbail and Enoch Nute were read, and Mrs. Coliagan was then placed on the stand. She contradicted tho testimony given by Hutchins and Mrs. Bailey in many important partic ulars, aud stated thae the instrument executed in Grover’s store was only a codicil, providing lor the erection of a tomb in Evergreen Cemetery, and that Capt Coliagan subsequently destroyed that instru ment. Alter the cross examination of Mrs. C. was con cluded, Court adjourneJ. Tho testimony in ike case will probably all be put in to-day. MUNICIPAL COURT. JUDGE KINGSBURY PRESIDING. Friday.—John Flaherty, Michael Connolly and Thomas Flaherty were charged with assault and bat tery on Michael Hawley. Mr. Robinson appeared for the State, and Messrs. Goddard & Haskell for the de fendants, all of whom were acquitted. Patrick Ward, Thomas Blake and Samuel Robbins, on search and seizure processes, pleaded not guilty, and were discharged. J. O’Donnell, Esq., appeared for Robbins. Israel Hague pleaded guilty to a search and seizure process, and paid the usual line and costs $22.26. The case of Hon. L. D. M. Sweat, for last driving in tho street, was further continued, in consequence of his absence from tho city. Cute.—Passing a couple of darkies on a cor ner a few hours since, I was requested by a very tall specimen from “Souf Kerlina” to read a paper which he handed me. On examining a bit of foolscap, about three by lour inches in size, I found it covered with a scrawl represent ing a Virginia fence. The darkey asked me the writing. Telling him it was no writing at all. he turned to his short, black, hut cute com panion, and rolling up the whites of his eyes, says: “Gim’c dat udder piece paper, you black wizard!” After fumbling his pockets the short boy hauled out another piece about tbo same size, with the name of one of our citizens, (G. Burnham) and the place where he could he found. The tall darkey had made arrangements to meet Mr. B. and work for him, hut the short boy had substituted the scrawl lor the name on the paper, and intended to substitute himself for the tall nigger, had it not been for this time ly exposure. Both niggers enjoyed the joke hugely, and particularly the hill sweep-stakes, who laughed as if he had found a mare’s nost, and in true African style congratulated him self oil his shrewdness in suspecting “dis short clam-digger of swopping the genuine paper, and gittin away his place. B. Arrests.—Yesterday afternoon Officer Ster ling arrested two lads named James Maloney and Henry Cummings, both belonging in Bos ton, who arrived here in the cars on Thursday evening. A dispatch had been received from Boston stating that the lads had absconded with $45 which they had stolen. The story of the hoys is that Sirs. Margaret Young of Boston got Maloney, who is her brother, to go and get her husband’s advanco wages. Staloney did so hut instead of carrying the money to his sister, came to this city in company with Cummings, and the lads were having a good time of it when arrested. Mo: t of the money was re covered, the greater portion of 1t being found in Cummings’ possession. They will be taken back to Boston for examination. Died of Apoplexy.—Michael Maloney, an Irishman who had boon at work lor several days for Mr. Krogman, of the Preble House, died of apoplexy on Tuesday night. He had been engaged in cleaning a vault, and com plained of feeling unwell, and asked for a glass of spirit which was given him. Soon after drinking he was prostrated and lived but a few hours. Coroner Gould was called, hut deemed an inquest unnecessary. Ma'oney had but re cently arrived at this port from Ireland. Cordage Manufacturing.—Parties inter ested in shipping are agitating the subject of a Cordage Factory. This is what Portland has long needed. It has been a matter of surprise among our marine men, that a rope factory has not been established here long ago. Some three or four winters since a charter was ..btain ed irom our Legislature for a Cordage Factory. We hope this matter will now be put through, and that wo may have a rope manufactory that will do credit to our city and State. * Railway Traffic.—The following are the receipts of tho Grand Trunk Railway for the week ending Jan. 19th, 1867: Passengers,.$29,345 00 Express Freight, Mails and Sundries. 5,500 00 Freight and Live Stock,. 74,073 00 Total.$108,918 00' Corresponding week last year,. 102,242 00 Increase,.$6,670 00 JOSEPH HICKSON, Secretary and Treasurer Liquor Seizures.—Mr. Israel Hague, who keeps a grocery store on Salem street, was re ported yesterday as a liquor seller.

Larceny.—Christina McKay stole a muff belonging to a lady in Yarmouth, at the Grand Trunk depot Thursday evening. She was ar rested and the muff was recovered, 31. L, A. Lecture*. The fourth lecture of the oourse before the Mercantile Library Association was given last evening at Mechanics’ Hall, by George William Curtis, Esq. The subject was “Conservatism." This word, or the thing for which this word

stands, had come, the lecturer said, to be re garded with a singular veneration by a great many old women of all ages and ! oth sexes; he proposed to see what, tried by its anteced ents and its effects, conservatism in our coun try and in our time really was. Ho found it to be everywhere and always, from the time when the first seeds of liberty were planted on these shores, fo the present day, hostility to human rights,—the spirit which had hung like a dead weight ou every movement for the advance ment and amelioration of the human race.— Wherever the genius of liberty had been hin dered and fettered, wherever, in England or America, the great liberty-loving Saxon prin ciple had been found struggling with the re mains of feudalism and tyranny, there its bit terest foe had always been called by the respec table name of conservatism. Every step of progress had been opposed by it. When Eng lish reformers proposed to abolish the slave trade it Btood aghast as if they had offered to repeal the law of gravitation, ami in this coun try it had with the same selfishness and cow ardice opposed every attempt at the enlarge ment of the liberties of men. The lecturer de scribed with caustic irony the position which conservatism assumes in the questions which agitate the country to-day, exhibiting it as still the same malignant spirit of hostility to free dom and equality. He touched eloquently on the inherent right of every man, nut only to liberty, but to everything which is needful to protect that liberty. Conservatism says tliat the suffrage is not a natural right because a man is not born a voter. He answered, neither is a man born a man but a baby. Yet as he is born with tho natural right to become both a man and a voter, and there is no earthly power that can justly hinder his growth to either of these. As conservatism hail no principle beyond hostility to human rights, so it had no argu ment save brute force. With this all its battles were fought. Its stronghold in this country had been the South He did not mean the Soutlngeographically, for the Southern spirit lived in Boston and New York, aud the free dom-loving North did not lack its representa tives in Texas aud Florida, but wherever the Southern idea of caste and of exclusion and of hatred to liberty prevailed there was conserva tism. It was idle to suppose that’the war had cured this. Alexander Stephens and Gov. Orr and Jefferson Davis even, might accept the situation, but they were not converted. It was Lee who surrendered in Virginia, it was not the Southern idea. That was always the same whether blubbering at a Philadelphia convention, or butchering men at Fort Pillow. He deprecated the charge of harshness or un kindness. He blamed no man’s honest opin ions, but he claimed that the country had a right to judge of the tendency of opinions aud principles and to guard against such as were dangerous to its safety. He was willing to give generosity to the rebels, but he asked jus tice for the dead boys in blue, and safety for the living nation. Men affected to he afraid of radicalism. But radicalism was simply the heroic common sense of the nation organized and resolved. The spirit of agitation, the genius of reform are not evils, though conserv atism ignorantly fears them, they are only ele mental forces, which liberty uses to tame and civilize the world. The lecture abounded in those flashes oi fer vid eloquence, aud touches of quiet drollery for which this speaker is so eminent No re port can convey any adequate idea of it, but the audience testified their approval and in terest by the closest attention and by repeated applause. The boat sleigh Enterprise will make two trips this afternoon leaving head of State street at two o’clock precisely if pleasant, and will leave Cumberland, corner of Chestnut, ten minutes past three, thus affording the children and others in the lower part of the city an op portunity to ride without, travelling so far.

The de cision has produced great agitation in the can ton, meetings have been he.d, and a journal founded to defend the principles of religious liberty. Let us hope that it will penetrate into the old citadel of Protestant orthodoxy.” —Another letter of John Wesley has lately been published, dated March 25,1783, in which ho reiterates his famous declaration concern ing the duty of adherence to the Church of England: “T 8t?U think when the Methodists leave the Church ol England, God will leave th?iu.

Let us render unto Cesar the things that arc Cesar’s, and nnto God the things that are God’s, and peace be tween Church and State will be troubled no non,” I Letter of Thanks from the Olttcirs and Crew of the Hritidi Bark .Julia.
