Thf IWct'rHckrn I^rllcr. The following is the letter of the crawling eaves-dropper, the peeper through key-holes, on whose information Mr. Seward iorced the resignation of Mr. Motley: Paris, Hotei, Mecbice, ( October 23, 1866. j Ur. President: I have travelled a good deal In Europe during the past year, and had occa sion to see something of our ministers and consuls in various countries. A large major ity of those whom I met with wero bitterly hostile to you and your administration, and expressed that hostility in so open and offen sive a manner as to astonish American trav ellers, and to leave a very bail impression upon Europeans who wero present. This was particularly true of those from uevr Eugluud State-, of whom a large majority o our foreign representatives seem to oe c im posed, and a very indifferent set they aie, indi vidually aud collectively. Mr. "M1!1?" ter at Vienna, does not pretend to conceal his disgust, as ho styles it elegantly, at your whole conduct. Having been appointed ex clusively by Charles Sumner, . he applauds him and his revolutionary doctrines, despises American democracy and proclaims loudly that au English nobleman is the model of humau perfection. There is not in all Europe a more thorough flunkey, or a more un-Ameri can functionary. He tells every traveller that Sumner is entirely justified; and that you have deserted your pledges and princi ples iu common with Mr. Seward, who he says is hopelessly degraded. At Frankfort the consul, Muipliy, who is said to have cleared more than $100,000 through his ofliee, declared repeatedly that tlio threat of his frieud Zach, Chandler would be made good and ought to he, by your impeachment. This is. notorious and a public scandal. Tiie fellow himself is vulgar, ignorant aud unworthy, and is one of Chandler’s tools. Hale, at Madrid, condemned your coi rie in a malignant man lier to various Americans, and so did Morris at Constantinople. Some of my friends who went to Morocco heard McMath, at Tangier, rail violently and shamefully against you say ing he was ready to retire from such a concern. Perry, at Tunis, was equally offensive in Ins language, there are many others in the same boat, and it is time that better men were ap pointed; men who will at least respect the President and the dignity of his office. Radi calism of the worst sort makes war on you and your friends under every pretext, and yet the Instruments of that action are blatant all over Europe in condemnation of both. It is a shame and a stigma to permit this longer.— Massachusetts seems to monopolize a lion’s share of the consulates, and Boston has no less than three of the best missions—Messrs. Ad ams, Burlingame and Motley. Is no other part of our country to be considered, or worthy of notice? Must Sumner, Butler, Phillips, Chandler and the like engross all the honors lor their satelites? I want nothing at your handB of any sort, hut fit and decent 'men should be sent abroad who will not slander the chief executive and the government. Wheel er, consul at Genoa, is a common drunkard and a disgrace to the country. When sober he abuses the President in the hearing of every body. Respectable Americans arc very much mortified by the presence of such unworthy persons in places of trust and responsibility, and few like the task of letting their experi ence be known as I have done. There are hundreds who know much more, but prefer to remain silent. Most respectfully, Geo. W. McCracken of New York. A friend will deliver this uote personally. The CMfaScralnu Hill The following, which we cut ftom the St. John Evening Globe, exhibits some of the fea tures of the new Confederation scheme, a bill for the establishment of which is to be laid be fore the present Imperial parliament: According to the original plan of Confedera tion agreed upon at Quebec, the confederated Provinces were to consist of three divisions,— 1st, Upper Canada; 2d, Lower Canada; 3d, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Prince Ed ward Island. According to the improved Loudon plan, Prince Edward Island is lelt out, so that the Lower Provinces lose four votes in the Upper House, and no provision is made to counterbalance the loss. The Quebec plan provided for the admission of the North West Territory and the Colonies on the Pacific. The improved plan omits that provision—which is an improvement. The Quebec plan gave New Brunswick pow er to levy export duties on lumber, logs, etc., and Nova Scotia power to do the same on coal or other minerals. The improved plan seems to give all the Local Legislatures the same power, but in reality it does not do so. It says the Local Legislatures have the power of direct taxation and the imposition ot duties, hut it does not tell how the latter power is to be exer cised. Aoe Quebec Scheme provided that— ‘‘The Local Government and Legislature of each Province shall be constructed iu such manner as the existing Legislature of each Province shall provide.” The improved London plan adds after the word “provide,” “in the Act consenting to the Union. Tins shows two things,—first, that the Act of Union is to bo submitted to the dif ferent Legislatures; next, that the plan of the local constitutions is to be dovetailed on to the Union Act, that the Governments may carry whatever plan they propound. If a Legisla ture docs not like the local constitution, the members will be told that they must not reject it. because they will imperil the whole Union matter. Tue Quebec plan, as we stated yesterday, guaranteed the existing rights of the Catholic and Protestant minorities in Canada. The improved London plan o.uits the guarantees. These—if we take the scheme published in the London Canadian News of Jan. 3 as au thentic—are all the changes made in the Que beo scheme, and they have cost our Provinces a large sum of money, and have kept our del egates so long in England. Mr. Lynch’" Resolution". The text of the preamble and resolutions of fered by Mr. Lynch in the House of Bepre sentatives last Monday comes to us in the Globe and is copied below. The present aspect of the reconstruction question, the right and the duty ot Congress in the premises, have never been set forth more clearly and definite ly than in these resolutions. Whereas the overthrow of the armed forces of the rebellion left the people of Virginia, North Carolina, Soutto Carolina, Georgia, Flor ida, Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana, Arkansas, and Texas‘’deprived of all civil government;” and whereas the governments now existing in those States, established by the President of the United States, havo uo constitutional sanc tion, and, being under the control and admin istration of the leaders of the rebellion, fail to afford to Loyal citizens of the United States that protection to which they areeutitled:— Therefore, Httnlved, That it is the duty of Congress im mediately to establish such governments over those States as shall maintain the authority ol the national Government, suppress violence, establish order, and protect all the citizens thoreof in their lawful rights, to tho end that they may as speedily as is consistent with the safety of the nation be restored to their former relations to the Union. Rttolved, That in the formation of new State governments lor those States all loyal citizens have aright to participate ami should be protected in the exercise of such rights by the uational Government. Mr. Lynch moved to suspend the rules and take up the resolutions for immediate consid eration, hut failed to secure the two-tliirds vote necesaary for that purpose. Qoldwin Smith on Bsyoumom.-Gold win Smith lias announced the delivery of a se ries of lectures, four in all, on English history. The first lecture devoted to John Pym, was de livered at Manchester, week before last. Judg ing from the report of it in the Times, it is a splendid performance. One of the lecturer’s remarks is worthy the especial attention of Americans at this time. “Let us,” he said, * never glorify revolution; statesmanship is the art of avoiding it, and making progress at once continuous and calm.” This wise sentiment will be all Hebrew to the raff of American pol iticians, who act and talk as if they supposed men must be in a state of high fever, orelse un fit to take part in pubhc business, devolution is the rule with them, and they think every man is mad who is not as mad as themselves. Mr. Smith made more than one allusion to American affairs, in which, as is well known, he takes a lively and a profound interest, for he understands them well, and also their bearing on world-wide politics. “There were one or two persistent hisses, overborne by applause,” says the reporter, “when Mr. Goldwin Smith lamented the gap left in the ranks of English freedom by the disappearance of the lesser gen try or yeomanry, who in America, under Grant and Sherman, still conquered for the good cause. After the doubtful victory at Edge-hill, which Mr. Smith said was in some respects the Hull's dun of our civil war—and the Times correspondent, had lie been present, would have inferred from it that Englishmen couldn’t fight—the King’s causo seemed to gain upon that of the Parliamentarians, who had entered on the struggle, like the Northerners in Amer ica, with overweening confidence in the power of numbers and resources, and found to their cost in the field the advantage possessed by masters who commanded obedience over dem ocrats who had not learned submission to com mand for the sake of their cause.” Polygamy in Utah.—Deseret papers pub lish a memorial of the legislative assembly of Utah Territory to Congress for a repeal of the anti-polygamy act adopted five years ago. This document recites that the judiciary of the Ter ritory has not, up to the present time, tried any case under said law, though repeatedly urged to do so by those who have been anxious to test its constitutionality; that the judges of the district courts of the Territory have felt themselves obliged by said act to refuse natur alization papers to certain applicants; that the said law is contrary to the spirit of the Consti tution, and directly in conflict with the first amendment, which states that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” The Mormons—like Jeff. Davis—de sire to ho “let alone”; and the editor of the Deserot News, who believes that plurality of wives is a “commandment from God,” enters into a warm vindication of his pet institution, and proceeds to enlighten Congress as follows: “It seems that members of Congress are im pressed with some vague idea that women are compulsory agents in plurality of wives here; that they arc in some sort of a condition ofin y°to®**ry bon lage. Such an idea h"s been set lortn by those precious‘witnesses’who testified before the l.ongrossional Committee last July, There’is mt'amil,‘4rUd by other8 like them.— rn&ro is not a man or woman in thn Tprrihrv of Utah but knows it to beShS. assure Congress, with a certain facts in tho premises, that the Udies offftah are neither bound, forced, nor coerced in iefi. « to "ho they*aooept ai'huil! IXTKilMAIlllIAUE OF DlFFEItKNT RACKS. Wo copy from the Kennebec Journal the final vote in the House of Representatives on the bill to remove the disability to marry between persons of different races. The pending mo tion was to reconsider the vote previously tak en to indefinitely postpone the bill. Members who did not regard themselves as standing in any particular need of legislation to prevent them from marrying negroes, voted aye; mem bers who wanted all the saieguards of the law, voted no: T,YE1'ltTMe86r8- Oliver Allen, Atwood, Beal, ®avKy?ro"5» Buckuam, Cilley, Cushing, Far mcr, Files, Frost, Gould, Hall Orrin Hall, Henley, Hinckley, Hollandi Hutchings, Jack sou, Laphara, Leighton, Libby, Tobias Lord, David \V .

We shall publish Mr. Morris’s sensible remarks on the measure to-morrow* SnAEP BUT True.—The New York Post, hav ing been solicited to use its influence in favor of a project to have the levees of the lower, Mississippi rebuilt either at the expense of the general government, or by means of money raised on its guaranty, responds as follows: The sum required is from three to five mil lions of dollars. This sum Louisiana and Mis sissippi ought to be able to borrow ou their own credit; and if the leading politicians in those states knew how to behave themselves, and would act in such a manner as to show the world that they mean peaceful industry and lawful liberty, and not strife, oppression of the poor, and political gambling, either of the states, but certainly Louisiana, could borrow the money, either here or abroad, without trouble. We think, therefore, that the general government ought to have nothing to do with the matter. Whenever the whites in that re gion get ready to become law-respecting, in dustrious citizens, they will have no difficulty in borrowing money for the repair of the levees; so long as they prefer to “harry niggers” and white Union men, they had better oe left to suffer the consequences of their folly. Handsomely Done.—Gen. Sheridan, says the blew York Commercial, sent, a few days ago, to Miss Rebecca Wright, of Winchester, A a., an elegant gold watch, and exquisitely wrought chain, a brooch and charms. The brooch is of gold, beautifully wrought into a gauntlet and set with pearls. One of the charms is a sword set with very valuable diamonds.— Accompanying this magnificent gift was an au tograph letter from Gen. Sheridan, acknowl edging Miss Wright’s services, which led to the General’s success at Winchester in the battle of Sept. 19th, 1864. Miss Wright was a young Quakeress, well known for her faith in a united nationality, and understood to be wil ling to aid the cause by any sacrifice. When Gen. Sheridan was in great doubt how to act he sent a scout to a lady, who, writing upon a slip of paper which she enclosed in tinfoil, di rected it to be placed in the mouth, that it might esoape the enemy’s search, and thus fur nished the information that enabled the Gen eral to achieve his victory. The Jamaica Atrocity.—It is stated in the English papers, on the authority of Mr. Jus tice Blackburn, that the grand Jury in the Queen’s Bench at Westminister, London, will probably make a presentment against Govern or Eyre for murder in connection with the re cent atrocity in Jamaica. New Publications. Robert Carter & Brothers. From the publishing house of this Boston firm we have a variety of new books mostly of religious character. Father Clement, by the author of “The Decision,” “Profession not Principle, etc., is a story written with a polemical intent, and de signed to show the fallacy of certain dogmas ot the Church of Rome, as well as the evil effects of those dogmas on private character and on domestic happiness. We have never been of those who like to take their theology in this form,but tnere is a very large class who do, and by such “Father Clement” will at least b3 found an interesting story. A more satisfactory, and, to our view,far more useftil work is the sequel to Ministering Children, a story which attracted deserved admiration on its appearance some time ago. These books are the production of an English lady, Miss Maria Charlesworth, and are re markable for the simple and natural manner in which they enforce the lessons of practical pi ety. The present story, though written as a sequel, is yet so far complete in itself as to be quite intelligible, and no young person Into whose hands it may fall can fail to be the bet ter for the lesson of Christian usefulness which it teaches. Curfew Chimes; or Thoughts on Life’s Eventide, by J. R. Macduff, D. D., is a collec tion of scriptural and other texts, with various hymns and poetical extracts of a character which may suggest such thoughts and reflec tions as suit the decline of life. They are comprised in a compact little volume small enough to be carried in the pocket, and pre senting a handsome and attractive appearance. Day Dawn, by the author of “English Hearts and English Hands,” is a neatly print ed tract, designed to exhibit the happy dawn of Christian hope in a soul darkened by sin. Jacobus’ Notes on Genesis. The Rev. Melancthon W. Jacobus, Professor of Biblical Literature and Exegesis in the Theological Seminary at Alleghany, Pa., has prepared with great care and labor a complete series of criti cal and explanatory notes on the book of Gen esis, which notes are here published in a con venient form, accompanied by the text. It will be found a useful and trustworthy book of reference for the student of this portion ot Scripture. All of the above are for sale by H. Packard. Massachusetts in the Rebellion. By P. C. Headlv, author of “Josephine," etc. Bos ton: Walker, Fuller, & Co. This is a handsomely printed octavo volume of some seven hundred pages, in which arc recorded the services of the State and people of Massachusetts in the war for the suppression of the rebellion. Not that any one work can set forth iully all that has been done by this or any other loyal State in the great contest, but of the services which can be known and estimated this volume con tains a careful summary, and it rescues from ob'ivion many instances of patriotism and he roism which might otherwise be forgotton. To all Massachusetts soldiers and their friends it will of course have great value and interest. A gTeat number of finely engraved portraits of distinguished soldiers and statesmen of the old Commonwealth adorn the volume. Carter & Dresser, 176, Fore street, are gen eral agents for the work. Mr. George H. Blake, hoi 827, is travelling agent. Agents wanted. , • The Galaxy, for February 15th is reoeived, The feature of it which will first oommand at tention is, of course, the commencement of Mrs. Davis’ promised story “Waiting for the Ver dict." It opens with a good deal of power, but we fear we are to be disappointed in tho hope that this work would prove less repulsive in the phases of lifo which it is to exhibit to us than most of its predecessors have been. Much as we admire the writer’s genius, and her skill in the analysis and delineation of character we, confess that we are not able to enjoy her life like portraitures, because of the ugliness of the subjects she best loves to paint. She constant ly introduces to us forms of humanity strangely suggestive of those slimy, crawling creatures, which are found under stones and on the walls of cellars. To read her stories is like breath ing the air of a charnel-house, or at the best of a coal-pit. We long for a good healthy breeze or a gleam of sunshine to expel the noxious vapors and miasms. Perhaps we may be some what hasty in judging of this story from a sin gle installment, but the only characters thus far introduced are a half-crazed Quakeress an Alabama planter who seems to belong unmis takably to the order of crawling reptiles, a sav age mulatto boy, an old Pennsylvania farmer honest and not unwholesome, and a little girl of nine tears, alarmingly precocious in her, knowledge of what no such child could or should understand. Perhaps future chapters may develops some phases of life which will be more attractive. Dr. R. K.. Browne contributes to this number of the Galaxy an interesting account of the manner in which the new Electric Light is pro duced; Mr. Arthur Fleming offers some “Ex periments with the Sonnet;’’Mr. Richard GrantVVlnte has an article on “Words and their Uses,” and Mr. George Wakeman, dis courses in a very lively manner of “Conun drums.” An interesting historical sketch of “John Rose” is by William L. Stone; there are several short stories of which “The Silent Lov er,” a Chinese tale, by Ed. H. House, is the best, one or two poems, and the always well written editorial chapter of “Nebula”contain ing “Soft Soap from John Bull;” “The Recall of Mr Motley;” “The Booth Medal“Mr. Jerome’s Prize Gentleman;” “Itemizing on Private Matters;” “A New Typographical Conoeit;" “Spiritist Revelations.” PORTLAND AND VICINITY.

Lately there has been considerable complaint from some of our subscribers, particularly up on the business streets, that they do not re ceive their papers regularly. We have cause to think that this is not entirely the fault of the carriers. We know that they have been stolen. To prevent this, many subscribers have boxes, or holes cut in the door or side lights, through which papers can be pnt; to all such we can ensure a regular delivery. It is presumed that all papers are left regularly and satisfactorily unless we are informed to the oontrary. A reward of $5.00 is offered to any person who will furnish evidence that will convict anyone of stealing the Press left by carriers.— No carrier is authorized to sell the Press; if they do they are stolen. Christian Cnarentian. This Convention of Christian Associations and Evangelical Christians of various denom inations, assembled at 10 o’clock yesterday morning at the Chestnut Street M. E. Church. A prayer meeting had been held in the vestry, at 9 o’clock, oouducted by Bev. C. Morse of South Berwick. The attendance was very good. Mr. Andrew J. Chase, President of the Y. M. C. A. of this city, called the Convention to order, and nominated President Harris, of Bowdoin College, as President of tho Conven tion, who, upon assuming the Chair, made an appropriate address, welcoming the ottendance of so large a number of clergymen and lay delegates, and arguing for tho unity of Christ ians of every namo, and tho progress ot true religion in the world. He then read a selec tion of Scriptures. The hymn, “Prom all that dwell below the skies,” was sung by the congregation. Prayer was offered by the President. The following named persons were appoint ed Vice Presidents and Secretaries and took their placeB upon the platform: Bev. H. P. Torsey, D. D., Kent’s Hill’; Adam Wilson, D. D., Paris; C. O.

An drews, of Biddeford; A. H. Heath, Auburn; Tristam Hersey, Paris; N. D. Curtis, T. B. Hayes, Capt. C. Sturdivant and A. J. Chase, of Portland. This Committee, through Mr. Andrews, of Biddeford, reported the following question and order: 1. “What can the lay members of our churches do for Christ?” All resolutions and questions relating to hus sliail be referred to the committee without dis cussion. Bev. S. P. Fay, of the Hammond Street Church, Bangor, was then called upon to open the discussion of the question proposed to tho Convention. Bev. Mr. Gage, of State Street Church in this city, followed in a happy strain of remark. Bev. J. M. Palmer, of Biddeford, Bev. Dr. Stockbridge, of Portland, Deacon Morse, of Paris, 0. K. Ladd, and Bev. Mr. Martin, of Portland, also spoke of the groat iufluence which laymen might exert. United in prayer with Bev. Dr. Adams, of Brunswick. The President read letters from Bev. Dr. Champlin, of Waterville, and Bev. Dr. Torsey, of Kent’s Hill. The committee of arrangements reported the following subjects for discussion in tlio after noon: 2. What measures oan be adopted to quick en the public conscience as to its duty in ref erence to the neglect of habitual attendance upou the worship of God in the Sanctuary. 3. Can the neglected poor be best reached by outside organizations, or by efforts to bring them by social and spiritual connection with Tegular established churches.

United in singing 35th Hymn; “Jesus, we look to tliee.” The discussion was resumed on the topic in troduced in the morning, in regard to what laymen can do for Christ. It was participated' in by the President, Bev. Dr. G. E. Adams, ol Brunswick, and John A. Cole, Esq., of New York, Secretary of tho American Christian Commission.

Adams, of Searsport, led in prayer. Discussion was resumed upon the topics in troduced in the morning, which was partici pated in by H. F. Durant, Esq., of Boston, and J. A. Cole, Esq., of New York. The Convention united in singing the 145th Hymn: “When I survey the wondrous cross On which the Prince ol Glory died.” The 4th topic was then taken np and Rev. Dr. Bosworth, of Lawrence, made a strong ad dress against card playing, dancing, &c. He went against them in toto, and his remarks met with responses of approbation firotn the Con vention. Rev. Dr. Stockbridge wished that some voice could go forward from this Convention upon the propositions of some ot the Christian As sociations of New York, to introduce billiard tables and ten-pin alleys, to be connected with their rooms. The President stated that all resolutions, by the vote passed in the morning, must be refer red to the Committee of Arrangements. As the time alloted to the discussion of this topic had expired, there was a strong wish that the time should be extended. But as there was one other topic to come up it was thought best not to extend the time. The 5th topic was then taken up, and L. VV. Andrews, Esq., of Biddeford, opened the dis cussion, followed by Rev. S. Baker, of Orono. H. F. Durant, Esq., of Boston, Mr. J. A. Fen derson, of Portland, Rev. Charles Muuger, of Skowhcgau, an 1 Rev. Dr. Adams, of Bruns wick. The Committee of Arrangements .reported the exercises for Friday as follows: Prayer meeting in the Vestry, to be conduct ed by Rev. Dr. Stockbridge, at half past eight o’clock. Convention to meet at half past 9 o’clock and the topics for discussion in the forenoon 1. How can intemperance be cured or pre vented in our large cities? 2. Does the Sunday School receive the active co-operation and encouragement from Chris ians to which it is entitled. And can any means be employed to render the Sunday School more efficient in the salvation of souls? 3. What can be done to remove the evils of such a diversity of sects, in the small towns, as unables thorn to sustain the ordinances of re ligion. United in singing Hymn 388: “Jesus, lover of my soul.” After benediction by Rev. E. P. Thwing, of Quincy, tho Convention adjourned. The Convention has been, thus far, a success. The attendance has been very large, about 500 delegates from abroad being present, the larger portion of which have registered their names with the Secretaries. The discussions have been animated and to the point. We regret that our limits prevent our giving sketches of the numerous addresses that were made yesterday. If we beg in we should not know where to stop, as all of them were characterized by a true Christian feeling, were spoken from the heart, and were truly eloquent. We should not omit to speak of the singing, led by Prof. Harriinan. It was grand, and the hundreds of voices mingled in sweetest ac cord, and the united sound filled the spacious house. It was one of the pleasantest leatures of thu meeting. President Harris presided with great dignity and to the acceptance of all. All seemed guid ed by one feeling—whether Congregadonalist, Baptist, Methodist or Freewill Baptist—the greatest good of the community seemed to be their object. In tbe discussion to take plaee this morning on Sunday Schools, Rev. Mr. Fenn, of High Street Church, will lead off. Larceny of Letters. — Wednesday, Uni ted States Marshal Clark arrested James Sen not, of Saco, for larceny of letters from a mail bag. It appears that some three months since the carrier of the United States mail between Goodwin’s Mills and Biddeford accidentally dropped the mail bag from his wagon. It was picked up by a sister of Sennot who carried it into the house. Sennot then cut into the bag, took out the letters, opened a portion of them and destroyed the rest. He acknowledgdd his guilt and told where the mail bag could be fouud. It was found in the place where he had hid it. He was committed for trial at the U. S. Circuit Court in April. Accident.—Mr. C. A. Pullen, of Cape Eliz abeth, a joiner by trade, while crossing over to his borne on the railroad bridge, Wednesday, was struck by the engine of the Biddeford train (51-2 P. M.,) and thrown into tho water. The train was backed and after very severe ex ertion on the part of several persons he was rescued from drowning, but his head and face were terribly bruised, beside other injuries.— The train brought him back to the depot and Dr. Thayer was called. After a short time the injured man was taken to his home, and may possibly recover, although (he hurt is most shocking. Liquor Seizures.—Yesterday the Deputy Marshals visited six plaoes and made seizures of small quantities of liquor in each one. The places visited were those of Joseph Alexander on India street, Patrick Nee on Foro street, Jeremiah McCarty on Fore street, Bridget Rounke on Monroo street, Michael Murray on Washington street and Ellen McCarthy on Centre street. Social Levee.—There will be a social levee at Brown’s hall this (Friday) evening, under the auspices of the Good Templars of Arcana and Atlantic Lodges. Friends of the Order arc invited. Tickets, including supper, one dollar. A good time is expected. The funeral of the late Daniel Stevens will take place to-morrow afternoon. Members of the Mechanic Association are requested to be at their Hall at 2 o’clock P. M. The U. S. Senate has confirmed the nomina tion of Colonel John M. Brown, of this city, to brevet Brigadier General. Thebe will bo a social gathering at the Chapel ot the State Street Congregational Church this (Friday) evening. Mechanics’ Assembies.—The third Assem bly will come oft* this evening. The West Aubara Murder. We condense from the account given in the Lewiston Journal such particulars in regard to the latest arrest as are of most interest. The New York detective employed in working up the case is Mr.M.Blake, an experienced offi cer. The Journal says: Monday week Detective B. visited the fail and saw Freitche, aud gathered what facte he could in this vicinity. Tuesday accompanied by Assistant Marshal Laughton, Mr. Blake visited the scene of the murder—West Auburn —and talked with friends of the deceased, their habits, property, who was acquainted with them &c., whether any enmity existed be tween the deceased and others, and learned that no enmity was known to have existed. The characters of the neighbors were looked into and the scene of the murder curiously ex amined. Attention was called to a negro who has lived at W. >1. Keith’s at West Auburn; also to other parties. The habits of the per sons to whom circumstances called attention, were inquired into, and the persons themselves examined. Wednesday Messrs. Blake and Laughton visited the premises of the murder and gave them a careful and prolonged examination. The deductions the detectives made from the appearance of the house and known cir cumstances were as follows:—The murderers were parties who knew of the premises, and who were acquainted with the family. Love of gain must have had something to do with it —lust, the detective thought, was not a suffici ent motive. Strangers, Mr. Blake thinks, would have dis arranged things in the house more. The fact that money was not taken did not change the detectives theory that money was what the murderers were after, as the money was depos ited m a small closet within a closet—a closet opening mtoa closet—which latter was reached j from Mrs. Kinsley’s bed-room. The latter gave evidence of having been examined by the murderers but the inner closet was not noticed »i?vTi?0r toi i* a “cleat” door, and one which would not be readily noticed. Hence the money was as effectually concealed as though it was not in the house. Mrs. K. had quite a large sum in money and bonds, a fact generally surmised by persons who lived in the neighborhood, and which could not have been known to strangers. attention had been called °/‘»W negro wbo lived at Mr. Keith g at West Auburn. These hoots were lound to be covered with what the detective called blood. The negro had not worn them sinco the night on which the murder was sup

posed to have been committed. That he wore them to this city when he came with Mr Keith's team on the Wednesday evening be fore the murder of the same night, was known. Officer Laughton entered into a conversa tion with the negro concerning the murder iu detective Blake s presence, ife was question ed familiarly on the subject aud was quite cool and unconcerned, showing nothing suspicious in his appearance. Officer L. then said to him: ‘We have found blood on your boots ” Tho negro's bearing at once changed from coolness to suppressed excitement “How came the blood on your boots?" con tmued officer L. “I don’t know,” was the only reply the negro could give, In reply to questions he said he did not go into any butcher s shop during his visit to this city Wednesday evening, and could not ac count for the blood. At a preliminary examination held from Fri day to Monday, from 25 to 30 witnesses were examined. The negro among others was ar rested on Saturday by Officer Keene who had been pursuing an independent investigation, not knowfng of the progress of tho investiga tions of the detective and officer Laughton. Clifton Harris,—or Hariet as he spells it—the negro prisoner, who has confessed the murder, is a mulatto, 19 years of age. He is about 5 feet 2 inches high; weighs about 130 lbs. About six mouths ago he came from Centre Minot to Mr. W. H. Keith’s at West Auburn, where he has since worked as a shore boy and on the farm. He came from the vicinity of Fortress Monroe, Virginia, and states that he was in the service during the war, and is familiar with scenes of blood. The negro can read aud write somewhat. The negro on being questioned told many conflicting stories in regard to his whereabouts at the time of the murder, and was caught in some palpable falsehoods. Finally, discovering that it was intended to hold him prisoner, he proceeded to make a full confession of tho crime with all its horrible details. The con fession is withheld for the present. The Jour nal says:— It is sufficient to sav that he represents rob bery as the original plan of the murder, accor ing to the Detective's conceived theory, and tells a story which will make the Mail run cold. He implicates in the murder Luther P. Verril, a single man about 30 years *f age, who worked for Mr. Halines «f West Auburn. Verril has been arrested and is now in Auburn Jail, but thsnies in toto any knowl edge of tho murder^L Abbest of Aaron A. Bradley.—Aaron A Bradley, the colored lawyer accused of excit ing the recent troubles among the frccdmen on the Cheves Plantation, was arrested at, Saran^li, Ga., on Thursday last, by Sergeant Mtyor A. W. Barry, of the Sixteenth Regulars acting under orders from the military authori ties. He was taken to the United States Bar racks and placed in the guard house. THE STATE. —Among the comparatively few very aged people in Maine, the Farmer notes Timothy Hutchinson, and his wife, Nizaulla Itawson, of Albany. Mr. H. is ninety-three years old, and his wife ninety. They have lived together sev enty-two years. They have had sixteen chil dren, ten of whom are now living, whose unit ed ages are five hundred and seventy-five years. The oldest son is seventy years old. There have been no deaths in their immediate family for sixty years. Mr. H. voted twice for Wash ington, as President. He is still quite smart, and for many years has husked all the corn raised on the farm. He was one of the first five persons who settled in the town of Sauger ville in this State, when there were but three dwelling houses in Bangor. His wile still weaves every year her web of domestic cloth. His large family have all become successful in life, and the aged couple have passed through the most eventful period known in the history of the world. —Mr. Richardson of Indian Rock in forms the editor of the Farmington Chronicle that he took last week from Rangely Lake ten trout, weighing seventy pounds.' They were caught with hook and line through the ice. —The Belfast Age says: “The beautiful ship Ivanhoe, built und owned in this city, and commanded by Capt. Horace Harriman, was the largest ship that entered the port of San Francisco, and delivered the largest cargo dur ing the year 18CC.” —We learn from the Home Journal that Alonzo Southard and John Longfellow,already under arrest in Augusta for store breaking wore the parties concerned in breaking into the fur store of Mr. J. E. Davis in Gardiner a few weeks since. SPECIAL NOTICES. M. C. M. A. FUNERAL NOTICE.
