The Norlhfutilcm Frontier. CLAIMS OF MAINE AGAINST THE GEXEBAX GOV ERNMENT. It a recent letter of our Washington corres pondent reference was made to the reportpre sented in the United States House of Repre sentatives on the 25th ult., by Mr. Patterson of New Hampshire from the committee on For eign Affairs, on the subject of the claims of the State of Maine against the United States, in connection with the settlement of the North eastern boundary, which claims the State has assigned to the European and North American Railway Company to aid in constructing a railroad between Bangor and St. John, N. B. We give below the substance of this report, in which it will be seen that Professor Patterson takes strong ground in favor ct the allowance of the claims. Their history is minutely re viewed and a mass of documentary evidence adduced to prove their validity. The report assume.- that the European and North Aineri can Railway, to which the claims have been assigned, is obviously a work of national im portance, both in a commercial and military point ol view. In ca‘ e of war witli Great Brit ain it would he a military necessity. In times of peace it would be a source of constantly in cre;ising wealth, and would bind the Provinces and States together in bonds of mutual inter est and sympathy. He also thinks it would tend to liasteu the political annexation of the maritime provinces to the United States,a con sideration the justness and importance of which will be variously estimat 'd. The claims which have been thus transferred are: First—A claim for lands assigned to settlers under the fourth article of the treaty of W ash ingtou. .. , .-second—A claim for the loss ot timber upon their territory during the suspeitsion ot state jurisdiction between 1833 and 183H. Third_A claim for the correction of an er ror made at the Treasury in computing the in forest on the expenditures made by the State in defending her territory. Fourth—A claim lor interest upon advances maue by Massachusetts in the war of 1812-15. The validity of the first and second of these claims, for the loss of land and timber,has late ly beeu denied, on the ground 'hat neither Massachusetts nor Maine had any legal title to the territory, so long as it was in dispute. To this it may be replied, that uuless the State ol Maine had title to this land and jurisdiction over it, the U uited States could have had none. There is a duuble jurisdiction in this country— that of the State aud that of the general govern ment,—but the State holds the iee-sitnple of all unappropriated territory within its bounds. This rule applies to all the Slab's of the Uuion. It the claim of Great Britain invalidated the title of Maine, it must have removed the authority of the general government therefrom. The ex istence of this double jurisdiction was not only assumed during all that controversy of more than a quarter of a century, hut explicitly stated in State and national legislation; in the speeches of statesmen whose reputation is not o<.l.r <.citi lint mnl in iYtn illnlo. matic correspondence of Great Britain and the United States. The lirst claim, above quoted, is founded up on tho fourth article of the treaty of Washing ton, revising the northeastern boundary, which is as lollows: ‘•Ail grants of land made by either party, within tlie limits of the territory which by this treaty lulls within ihe dominions of the other party, shall be held valid, ratified, and confirm ed, to the persons in possession under such grants, to the same extent as if such territory had by this treaty fallen within the. dominions of the party by whom such grants were made; and all eqiiitab e possessory claims, arising from a possession and improvement of any Jot or parcel of land by the person actually in pos session, or by those under whom such person claims, for more than six years before the date of this treaty, shall, in like manner, ho deemed valid, anil be ooullrmed and quitted by a re lease to the person entitled thereto, of the title to such lot or parcel of land so described, as best to include the improvements made there on; and in all other respects the two con'ract iug parlies agree to deal upon the most liberal principles of equity with the settlers actually dwelling upou the territory falling to them, re spectively, which has heretofore been in dispute between thorn.” In this article the general government agree to quiet the individuals who hold lands in their possession within the boundary, either by grants from New Brunswick or by equitable possessory claims. There is no direct infer ence here either to the State or the holders of tlie Eaton and Plymouth grants. It relates solely to interlopers. These persons were to he quicied through the intervention of Maine, else the Uuuexi States would have given titles as to other settlers upon the public domain, and the territory would have remained hers un til formally surrendered to Maine, which has never been done. This article was introduced iu tbe treaty at the suggestion of the Commis sioners of Maine, to secure remuneration fot losses, and they were the first to bring these claims against the government under this ar ticle of tbe treaty. It lias been said, however, these claims have already b en baid to the “disputed territory fund,” and the 300,000 stipulated for in the fifth article of the treaty which reads as follows: “Whereas, In the course of the controversj respecting tbe disputed territory on the north eastern boundary, some moneys have been re ceived by the authorities of her Britannic Ma jesty's province of New Brunswick, with tin intention of preventing depredations on tbi forests of the said territory, which moneys wert to be carried to a fund called the ‘Disputei Territory Fund,’ the proceeds whereof, it was agreed, should be hereafter paid over to the parlies interested, in the proportions to lie de farmiiiftl 1 u /hull ftftth-iii<-iit ut byundiirieSj it is hereby agreed, that a correct account o 1 all receipts and payments on the said lund shall be delivered to the Government of the United States within six months after the rat ification of the treaty; and the proportion of the amount due thereon to the States of Maine and Massachusetts, and any bonds or securities ed over to Mie Government of the United States; and the Government of tho United BtrVs agrees to,receive for the use of and pa, over to the States of Maine and Massa chusetts, their respective portions of said fund; and, further, to pay and satisfy said States; re spectively, tor all claims or expenses incurred by th in in protecting the said heretofore dis puted territory, and making a survey thereof in 1838; the Government of the United States agreeing to with the States of Maine and Massachusetts to pay them the further sum of $300,huO, in equal nioities. on account of their assent Vo the line of boundary described iu this treaty, and iu consideration "of the conditions aud equivalents received herefor from the government of bor Britannic Majesty.” This article of the treaty has been fully and fairly executed by both parties to it, and the government was promptly discharged from the obligations imposed by it. Bnt this does not discharge the government from its obliga tions under the fourth article of the treaty, She has not yet “confirmed and quieted by a release to tbo persons entitled thereto” their possessions, lmr can she do it except through the intervention of Maiue, the validity of whose title the treaty of Washington itself af firmed. But the State refuses to intervene and ratify the grants and possessions of lands which were stolen from her, while disrobed of power, by the national government, without compensation. The Claimants further urge that the govern ment has a.ready acknowledged, in an explic it manner, the right of property on the part of the States of Maine and Massachusetts in the lands to be eoutirmed to the settlers, and rec ognized the propriety of the States quieting them in their possessions by paying the expen ses of the commissioners appoin ted by Maine uu_d Massachusetts lor this purpose in 1843 and The second claim is for the loss of timber upon their territory while in dispute between 1832 and 1839. For the sake of maintaining peace the United States, iu 1832, entered into an arrangement with Qreat Britain by which the jurisdiction of Maine over that part of her territory in dispute was suspended until tho final settlement of the controversy. The State did not admit the right of the general govern ment to bind her in a matter of this kind, but from considerations of public welfare yielded to its solicitation auil iorbore to exercise her authority, even against trespassers, till 1839.— During the seven years that the property of the State was so removed from the protection ot her Jaws by an act of the national govern ment, for the purpose of avoiding war, her ter ritory along both hanks of the Aroostook and the upper St.John was stripped of its valuable timler by the lumbermen of New Brunswick, i bus, to avert a threatened public evil, the State was despoiled of much valuable proper ty, lor which she is entitled to indemnity li the claim does not come within the clause of the Constitution, which declares that “private property shall not he taken lbr public use with out just compensation,” it is sufficiently near to be recognized and allowed by Congress. The only plausible argument ever ureeii against paying this claim is oue founded upon a discharge received by the gouernmenton the payment of the “disputed territory fund.’’— But that argument rests upon the erroneous assumption that it was a discharged from all li abillity for the loss of lumber, whereas, it was only “a full discharge of flic liability of the United States to the States of Massa chusetts and Maine by reason of the aforesaid 5th article of the treaty.” The fact is that the “disputed territory fund” does not cover a hundredth part of the losses incurred **y r ' spoliation of lumber, and the claim would have been good if the treaty had never been consummated.

Napoleon allotted 800 a year for the expenses of.lijs toilet. It will be remember ed that he always wore knee-breeches of white cashmere. These garments, however, he was obliged to change several times in a day, as he in flic hurry of writing, constantly spotted them with ink.

Plaintiff in tus writ alleges that certain notes given for sums of money hired of defendant were made larger than the amounts received. Defendant pleads the general issue and in his specifications of defenco, alleges that he never, cither directly or indirectly, received or re tained any excessive or unlawful interest from the plaintiff. That if the notes were given for more than the amount of money loaned, they were given for a valuable consideration and not for excessive interest. That defendant suffered great trouble and loss by loaning money to plaintiff, and never received the amount due him from plaintiff. That if any exces sive or unlawful interest was paid by plaintiff on said notes, the defendant is not liable to repay it to plain tiff; and that dcfcnrlant is in no manner responsible for such alleged unlawful interest, if any was paid by the plaintiff.

Augustus Kennedy, the fellow who has been com mitting petty larcenies in various stores, was brought up on a charge of larceny of four pounds of tobacco in the store of Francis Bennett. He pleaded guilty and was sentenced to CO days in the County Jail. A lad complained of for truancy, was sent to the Reform School during his minority. Mary Reed, for drunkenness and disturbance, paid $6.17, fine and costs. ( . — — The State Reform School. The whole Dumber of boys in the State Re form School at Cape Elizabeth on the 1st De cember last was 161, being 22 less than a year before. Only two deaths are reported,and no other grave cases of disease have appeared. The industries of the institution have been . A. -* V,/..;i vr**iiicions nave been con tinued as usual. A brick yard has been fit ted up, and has been found quite profitable. The shoemaking and mending ior the school have all been done at home, and several cases of brogans and slippers have been sold tor full prices. Straw work has also been introduced to a limited extent. Work has been continu ed in the chair shop, and in the sewing room. The income Irom ail these sources has been about $7000 and is estin iated at $8000 for the next year. The Trustees are of the opinion that gardening should be made a leading pur suit as soon as possible. With the Portland market close at hand, gardening ought to jbe profitable, while the labor is better suited to the strength of the younger boys than farm work or brickmaking. A very favorable report is given of the school, the order and attention to study being spoken of as particularly noticeable, and the •improvement such as might be expected un der such eiicumstances. Many of the boys show a strong dispo ition to improve their leisure by reading, and tbc Trustees recom mend a small appropriation annually for im proving and enlarging tbe library. The Su perintendent, remembering the proverb about “ all work and no play,” advises the construc tion of a cheap play house in the yard, and again reminds the Trustees of the impossibil ity under present arrangements of devoting sufficient time to the musical education of the boys. The Sabbath School, conducted by Portland teachers, Is lound to interest the boys. The Portland Bible Society continue their usual supply of Bibles. The estimated amount to be appropriated by the State to meet tbe expenses of the pres ent year is $18,893. Main® Itiriatiun Cmreaiita Tbe following letter, which we publish by request of the P. Y. M.

Yours truly, W. 8HACKELL, Aunitor. President Harris, of Bowdom College, has been invited to preside at the convention and has acc epted tbe invitation. Entertainment will be provided for dele gates as far as possible in the present crowded condition of our city. The Preble House and United States Hotel have agreed to make a discount from the usual fare to those attending the Convention. Delegates are requested to report at tbc vestry of the Chestnut Street Church. Personal.—Rev. Dr. Neely, Episcopal Bish op of Maine, arrived in town Thursday, on a visit of a fortnight, and is the guest of Rev. Mr. Dalton, at the Rectory of St. Stephens, Spring street. Bishop Neely intimates that his first work will be to erect a small church in the lower part of the city to accommodate temporarily the residents in that portion of the city. Death from Injuries. — Michael Cahill (not Carle, as we had it yesterday) who fell from a ladder in a stable on Green street Thursday afternoon, died, from the effects of his injuries, last evening. He was about 60 years of age, and leaves a wife and three children. . 1 ^ ^•~Thc members of the Irish Amer 'can ssociatiou are requested to meet at their Hall this evening, at 7 1-2 o’clock, for he purpose of making arrangements to attend the funeral of thmr late brother, Michael Ca “eL _ J CUNNINOHAN, Sec. Wellcome’s great German Remedy recom mends itself to all who use it foi throat and lung difficulties. Thousands declare it superi or to any other.

S. Hodsdon (formerly Fitzgerald & Hodsdon), who has purchased the stock and located bim lelf at the old stand of Mr. John F. Rand, No. 8 Clapp’s Block, Congress street. It is his in tention to keep the stock of gloves, hosiery and fancy goods tilled with all the latest styles and importations. In the skirt and corset line he does not mean to he exceeded by any one. His establishment will he supplied with articles of this kind from all the best manufactories in the Union; and in addition to this ,he has ex perienced manufacturers in his employ, and the ladies can have hoop skirts made of any size, to order, on short notice. As a proof of this, we will mention that a holy, yesterday, at four o'clock in the afternoon, ordered one of a particular size to be made, and at C o’clock it was finished and in a thorough manner. La dies will do well to give him a call. Railroad Accident.—A heavy freight train yesterday morning on the Portland & Kenne bec road, when approaching Topsham, broke through the bridge over the street just beyond the station, one car falling in fragments be tween the abutment, and another badly broken one passed over. The cause of the crash was the breaking of a wheel, which almost stopped the train ou the bridge, and producing a great er strain than ever before. The un passenger train of course had to stop on the other side, and the passengers walked to the station, when the Bath train came to their rescue and brought them through to Portland only a few moments behind time. The down train had to transfer its load to the train waiting on the other side, but it is expected the bridge will be repaired to-day. No person was injured. w Probable Case of Infanticide.—Yester day morning the workmen engaged in exca vating for a drain between the glass works and the sugar refinery, discovered the end of a box sticking out of the dump made the previous day. The box was unearthed, and on being opened, disclosed the body of an infant, appa rently but a few hours old, one side of the tem ple being crushed in. The body was decently clothed, and had been placed in a soap box, and interred on Thursday night, but not quite deep enough to prevent exposure. One more load of dirt would have entirely covered it up, had not the cover of the box been left exposed. Mr. Sampson took charge of the body and had it buried at the Alms House. Snow Slides.—The snow slides yesterday, from the roofs of buildings, quickly converted several good looking hats into “ shocking bad” ones, causing the owners of them to mutter ejaculations that did not sound very much like blessings or prayers. One young damsel, who was seized with a fit of glee at seeing a slide take a gentleman on the top of his head, knocking his castor into an unseemly shape, suddenly changed her tune as a small avalanch of snow from the roof of a building descended upon her, carrying away her waterfall and in juring her cabbage leaf bonnet. Martha Washington Society Festival. This excellent Society i propose to increase their treasury—now about empty — by giving a festival at Lincoln Hall, next Wednesday evening. What the Marthas undertake to do, they always do well, and therefore we are safe in predicting a good time. And, in this con nection, let all the good-hearted remember that every cent given into the charge of these devoted Christian women will be sure to find its way among the poor, of whom, since the fire, we have an increased number. Let us give them a hearty response to their call. Change of Tempebatuhe.—At six o’clock Thursday morning, January 31st, the mercury Btood at nine degrees below zero in this city.— At two o’clock Friday afternoon, February 1st, the mercury in the same place stood at fifty nine and one-half degrees above ; making the astonishing change of sixty-eight and one-half degrees in the temperature in the space of thirty-two hours. The month of February came in mild and beautiful. So fine a day as yesterday, has not been experienced for some months. Horse Killed.—A valuablo horse belong ing to Messrs. Taylor & Boothby, was hired yesterday by a party, to drive out of town.— The party palled at the Capisic House, hitched their horse and went in. While they were in the house the animal got loose and in making his way to the city so badly injured one of bis legs that it was deemed mercy to shoot him, as his injuries caused him extreme pain which could, by no means be alleviated. The parties who hired the horse paid the owners the value they set upon him. Theatre.—Miss Bidwell having recovered from her illness will appear this evening in hei popular characters in the ever welcome play of the French Spy, also in the successful drama of one Jforty Thieves, formincr a verv attrac tive bill which will undoubtedly call forth ene of the best houses of the season. •second Jr arish vjhurch.—xo-morrow arter noon, at the meeting of the Second Parish Chur cli and congregation, in tho First Parish Churc h, Rev.Dr. Carruthers will announce his ultimate decision as to continuing his pastoral charge of the Society. We take pleasure in calling the attention oi our readers to the advertisement of K. D. At wood, Nos. 43, 47 and 49 Centre street. He is prepared to supply all with a superior quality of oysters, in large or small quantities. Give him a call. New Molasses.—The first cargo of new mo lasses arrived at this port yesterday, to Messrs. Chase, Cram & Sturtevant. Another cargo is below to Mr. George S. Hunt. The Emerald Associates will give their first assembly at Mechanics’ Hall, next Thursday evening. See their advertisement in another column. Liquor Seizures.—Yesterday the Deputy Marshals made seizures of liquor in the shops kept by John Foley on York street and John McGlinchy on Canal street. Arrest for Larceny.—Tho police yester day morning arrested a lad who with two others was concerned in the larceny of $7.00 from Thompson’s bakery on Muujoy. The Mutilated Despatches. Washington, D. C., Jan. 31,1867. The New Orleans investigating committee have brought to light certain hitherto unpub lished correspondence relative to the garbling at the White House of General Sheridan’s des patches concerning the riot. It appears that the mutilated reports were printed In New Or leans at the same time they appeared in the New Ifork Times, and General Sheridan at once telegraphed to General Grant that one essential paragraph Was suppressed, and asked him if he could tell who was guilty of the breach of military honor in giving it out in that shape. General Grant at once responded that it did not get into print from his headquarters, and said if General Sheridan had no objections he would ask to have them published in full. General Sheridan, on the following day, tele graphed that he did not for an instant suppose that the despatches were thus published by General Grant’s authority, and he thought he had a right to feel justly indignant at the per son who did give the authority. He had noth ing to say, he continued, as to the publication of his other despatches; they were not written lor publication, bnt were at the service of bis superior officer. On the same day, Aug 11, General Grant sent correct copies of all the despatches to the Secretary of War, asked then publication in full, and continued:— “Already a garbled version of one of these despatches and an incomplete copy of another, have appeared in the public prints. These publications put General Sheridan in the po sition of taking a partizan view of the whole question, and what is still worse, of being one day on one side of the question aud another day on the other side. His despatches in full show that he takes no partisan view, but reports what he believes to be facts, without regard to who is hit. I am just in receipt of a telegram from him showing displeasure at his despatch es getting into print in a mutilated and incom plete form.” Mr. Stanton, on receiving this letter, at once referred it to the White House, saying that he did not feel authorized to act in the matter without the President's direction, and he there lore submitted the papers for instructions.— The President took the matter under advise ment, and directed a collection of all letters and dispatches relative to the riot and conven tion, that had passed between the military and civil authorities at Washington and New Or leans, saying at the same time that they were to he examined in view of publication in full, in the order of their dates. The papers were at once collected aud laid before the President. He examined them and two weeks later, alter cutting out this correspondence relative to the garbling of Gen. Sheridan’s report, gave per mission for the publication of tne other letters and dispatches.—Dispatch to Boston Advertiser. At Oxford, some twenty years ago, a tutor of one of the colleges limped in his walk.— Stopping one day last summer at a railway station, he was accosted by a well-known poli tician, who recognized him, and asked if he was not the chaplain of the college at such a time, naming tho year. Tho doctor replied that he was. “I was there,” said bis interroga tor, “and I knew vou by your limp.’. “Well,” said the doctor, “it seems my limping made a deeper impression on you than my preaching.” “Ah, doctor,” was the reply, with ready wit, ‘it is the highest compliment we can pay a minister to say that he is known by his walk rather than by his conversation. ’ —The celebrated burning well near Franklin, a., s again on fire, the flames frequently shooting up to a height of one hundred feet. THE STATE. —In the Supreme Judicial Court, at Saco on Monday, the case of State vs. Jane M. Swett for homicide will be taken up, and im mediately following that will be the case of State vs. Chas. W. Wilkinson et als., for homi oide. —The Biddeford Union states that George A. Carter, Esq., of Saco, has accepted the office of cashier of the First National Bank of that city, in place of Mr. Booth by, resigned. Mr. Carter has been the Express and Telegraph Superintendent at Saco for the last ten years, and is well known and high y esteemed. — Solomou Cunningham, of Swanville, dropped down dead in the road near his resi dence, on Tuesday last. His age was about eighty. —Our Bangor friends are luxuriating, for the second time this season, upon winter sal mons. A fine fellow of twenty pounds weight, plump and fat, was ignobly taken in a smelt net a few miles below the city. —The Lewiston Journal of Thursday says: “Humors have been current to-day that anoth er party has been arrested on suspicion of be ing concerned in this tragedy, but the rumor is not well founded. The Frenchman has not yet been discharged. It is possible, however, that new aud unforeseen developments may transpire at an early day.” —The Belfast Age say9:—“In the death of Capt. Wood of New York, who was lost from the yacht Fleetwing in the great ocean race, a singular presentiment of his wife has been fulfilled. Over date of Dec. 15,1866, she wrote her mother (a resident of this vicinity), ‘My husband sailed for Europe on yacht Fleetwing the 11th, and I am completely prostrated with grief and anxiety, feeling that he will never return. You will think this childish, but to me it is reality.’ ” —Lewis W. Soule, a young man in the em ploy of Mathews & Co.’s sash and blind facto ry at Belfast, had two fingers cut off by com ing in contact with the knives of a tenant ma chine. —At the meeting of Trustees of the State Agricultural College, held in Augusta on Wednesday, Hon. Phinehas Barnes of this city was chosen President, with a salary of $3000 a year. —The concert by Mr. Shannon and his choir of singers from Portland on Wednesday even ing, at the Town Hall, passed off very credita bly, and to the satisfaction of all. Mrs. Burn ham sustained her part admirably, and render ed her solos with fine effect. The tenor by Mr. Morgan was very melodious; it is to be regret ted that he was affected with such a severe hoarseness.

REUOIOVS. —Two Parsees,disciples of Zoroaster,have re cently been converted to Christianity at Bom bay, India, and Dr. Wilson writes that the Par sees generally are growing in liberality, and he thinks they will be among the first of the class es of India to accept Christianity. —The vote of the late General Assembly at Memphis, excluding colored preachers from or dination as ministers, which excited so general surprise at the North, is resolutely justified at the South. A Rev. Mr. Grarty, in a communi cation to the Central Presbyterian, say’s the Scriptures do not authorise the oadaining cf men to preach to one race exclusively, and that inasmuch as the black man cannot preach to white men, therefore there is no Scriptural au thority for ordaining him at all! And the Pres byterian Index, published at Mobile and New Orleans, and edited by Dr. John H. Rice, a prominent member of the Memphis Assembly, comes out with equal boldness in support ol the doctrine that emancipation has not chang ed the relations of the two races—that the black man is a menial, and must be kept in a menial oondit:on if possible. —Bishop Kip of California has issued a pas toral letter denouncing frivolous amusemen ts, and especially daucing, at Sunday school and church festivals. —The Rev. Mr. Lord, of the diocese of Penn sylvania, has been appointed Chaplain of the Soldiers’ Asylum lately established at Togus Springs, near Augusta. —The Rev. Robert Lowell, D. D., the author of the New Priest, has been invited to take the Professorship of Philosophy and Belles Let res in Racine College. —The Rev. Bernard Peters, for two years pastor of the Universalist society in Hartford, Conn., has resigned his pastoral charge for the purpose of assuming the editorship of the Hart ford Daily Post. —Rev. E. Pepper of Farmington qas received and accepted a call to become pastor of the Baptist church in Eastport ahd will enter up on his work there soon. —Rev. Honrv D. Moor has resigned his pastoral charge in Attteburg. Pa., in conse quence of ill health winch is Aggravated by the smoke and bad air of that city. He is now in Philadelphia, and we hear a rumor of his prob able return to Portland. Keep to the Point.—If the anonymous cor respondent of the Argus who has undertaken to correct history with reference to the Dred Scott case, in spite of the decision itself, is re ally a law student, he has many things to learn. Among other things he will learn, if he ever learns anything, that while an outsider’s opin ion of what is or is not the law in a case sub judice is of the least possible significance or ac count, the interpretation of a published decis ion is not such a mystery hut that an ordinary amount of intelligence will serve to unriddle it. He will learn also that in respect to a great historical case, like the Dred Scott case, it is not sate to presume upon the ignorance of or dinarily well informed men outside of the bar. He will learn not to hazard hearsay opinions concerning the bearing ol easily accessible doc uments without previously consulting them.— He will learn, perhaps, that it is useless to try to escape from the exposure of his errors and blunders by the path interrogative, or by rais ing a dust of professional cant, as follows: Will the learned pundit of the Press now tell us when the judicial tribunals have ever re fused redress to the negro for wrongs to per sons or property, if he sought redress by the appropriate remedy? Everybody is of course turneu out of court who seeks redress by other than the appropriate remedy, as by action on trespass when it should be assumpsit, or of tro ver when it should be replevin. The court decided that a negro could not sue in United States courts at all. It is not a ques tion of “appropriate” remedies. The court de cided that no complaint could be entertained from a descendant of that “unfortunate race,” and refused redress to Dred Scott for wrongs suffered in his person, and in the persons of his family. If the correspondent of the Argus ad mits this, as he does tacitly, he admits the jus tice of the common verdict upon the Dred Scott decision. It was simply shocking. —M. Basin, favorably known for his photo graphic researches, has contrived a very ingen ious sub-marine photographic studio, by which ho is enabled to take photographs of sunken ships, rocks, etc. The chamber is provided with lens-shaped water-tight windows, and by means of the electric light the objects to be photographed are highly illuminated. M. Ba sin is able to remain about ten minutes in his submarine chamber, and has produced several clear and well-defined photographic pictures of objects at the great depth of three hundred feet. —A third head of Bicheliou is said to have been found, and it is believed that more will be forthcoming. Burnett’s Oriental Tooth Wash is a preserver ol flic teeth, and beautilies them without iujurytothc enamel.
