The Maine Slnic Pm>, Published to-day, contains the latest devel opments respecting the Auburn murder, a brief report of the trial of Airs. Swctt of Keu uebunk, charged tvfth poisoning her husband an account of the annual meeting of the Maine Historical Society, Mr. Morris’s remarks on the Intermarriage hill in the Legislature, Rev. Mr. Gage’s lessous drawn from the Christian Convention in this city, Mr. Lynch’s resolu tions in Congress on Reconstruction, a num ber of “Train's” excellent articles, together with a very fall report of the late important proceedings in Congress and in the Legisla ture, foreign and domestic news of the week, shipping news, market reports, &e., &o. The New Orleans Massacre. The report of the Congressional Committee shows that during the riot of the MOtli of last July 37 loyal citizens of New Orleans were killed, 48 severely wounded, and 88 slightly wounded. On the other hand, barely one disloyal citizen was killed, by accident and not by any of the friends of the obnoxious Con vention, and just 10 policemen were slightly wounded. These facts are taken from the of ficial report of Ur. Albert Hartsutr, Assistant Surgeon IT. S. A., who has reason tolielievc that at least 10 more negroes were killed and 20 wounded, though he is unable to verify this latter statement with absolute certainty. VVe can afford to discard these merely proba ble cases and to neglect the 88 reported as slightly wounded. If we set only the 85 kill ed and wounded friends of the Convention against the 10 slightly wounded policemen, can anybody doubt which was the aggressive party? Next consider the additional tact, that in the six months which have elapsed since that bloody massacre, not a single ]h> liceman, not a single assailant of the Conven tion, has beeu arrested and brought to trial for his share in that day’s work! On the con trary, prosecutions under an old law passed in 1805 are even now pending against the mem bers of the Convention, for a breach of the peace! Suppose we grant that the Conven tion had no powers, no authority whatever; does it follow that the members of the Con veutiou had forfeited ail rights? that their unlouuded claims, if they were uutoiuulcd, had stripped them of all social privileges, so that they might be shot dowu with impunity ? That is the theory which still prevails in New urieans. Albeit L. Voorhies, Lieutenant Governor, and Andrew S. llerron, Attorney-General of Louisiana, and J. T. Monroe, Mayor ol New Orleans, are the three officials who must hear the chief responsibility lor this crime—all reb els, Monroe at that time without even the poor apology of a Johnsonian pal'd'in lor call ing himself a penitent traitor. Two days be fore the riot Voorlieis aim llerron both sign ed an iullammatory dispatch to the President, telling him he had been “bitterly denounced’’ by the Radicals, and asking if the military would interfere “to prevent process of court-’ On the same day Yoorlries and Monroe called on Gen. Laird to inlbrin him that the design previously intimated to him, to which he bad strongly objected, of employing the police to break np the Convention, had been abandon ed, and that on indictment by the gl and jury of the palish process would issue to the sheriff to make arrests. Gen. Laird telegraphed to the War Office foi additional instructions, hut, got no reply. Secretary Stanton, who now heard ol the difficulty lor the first time, re. gardiug Gen. Baird’s course, explained in his dispatch, as entirely satisfactory, and seeing no occasion tor further instructions. The President however, who had been visited by special agents of the conspirators and notably by one J. Adolphus Rozier, was prepared to reply promptly to Messrs. Voorhies and Her ron. His dispatch assured them that the mil itary would he expected ‘ to suslaiu and not to obstruct or interfere with the proceedings of the court.’’. So assured “the court” did pro ceed in a startling and high-handed fashion, the like of which has hardly been seen since St. Bartholomew's day acquired it) bloody prominence in the calendar. On the 8tli September following, the Presi dent iu his famous speech at St. Louis, de clared with insane vehemence that “every man engaged In that Convention, with the intention of superseding and upturning the civil government which hud been recognized by the Government of tire United States, was a traitor to the constitution of the United States," and that another “rebellion was com menced having its origin in the Radical Con gress.” Mr. Johnson has probably discovered since, that the civil government of Louisiana has not been recognized and has no immedi ate prospect of being recognized by the Con gress of the United States, and that without such recognition it is less permanent than he had supposed. The Convention proposed to remodel that government so as to admit to tire polls all loyal citizens black or white, and exclude traitors. That was what the Presi dent called “rebellion.” Finally, Judge How ell, President pro tempore of the Convention, testifies that lie visiied Washington to get some encouragement from Congressmen and failed! So much for the responsibility of the Radical Congress in the matter. It should he added that the President was perfectly aware that the Governor of Louisiana was co-operating with Judge Howell in railing the Convention together. Yet he spoke of ttiis peaceful gathering under the auspices ot the chief magistrate of the State, as ‘ a reliellion,'’ and he treated it as a rebellion, to lie stamp ed out, crushed, put down without ruth or mercy. It was after the massacre, he it ob served, that he spoke thus of the Convention, justifying tl.e violence which he had himself encouraged. But one excuse can be ottered for such language as the President used at St. Louis, ami that excuse would itself furnish ground Ibr impeachment. Such is the history ot this bloody massacre. The investigation docs not convict the Presi dent or the local authorities directly and clear ly of conspiracy to bring about the riot. It does uncover what must at least be called a criminal neglect to prevent disturbances plain ly foreseen. Their own wonts and acts since the event have shown in what direction their sympathies went forth. The government ol Louisiana is still in the hands of the men who controlled it in July, the men to whom the President committed it. Will C'ongTess leave it there ? Amendment of alii- itlariinifc I mi . Mi:. Editcr:—The recent refusal of tlie Legislature of this State to repeal the law lor iiWiiing tlie marriage of whites with blacks it seems to us is an instance ot'ldgotry, “conserv atism" ami barbarism. Besides this it seems to conflict witli the laws of the land. Will you please inlbrin us whether it is not in con flict with tlie Civil Eights bill, now a law. and it so, whether tlie State law in question is not therefore a “nullity"? Justice. Answer.—The first section of the Civil Eights law provides that citizens of every race and color “shall have the same right in every State and Territory in the United States to make and enforce contracts, to sue, be parties and give evidence, to inherit, Ac, Ac." Wheth er the marriage contract is contemplated here, and whether the difficulty about inheritance arisiug train the illegitimacy of such contracts is or is not created according to law, ate ques tions lor the courts to decide. 1 bat the pi ac tually obsolete restriction of which “Justice” writes contravenes the spiiit ot the Civil Rights law, it is impossible to doubt. We pul> lisli below extracts from quite a num ber ot Maine papers respecting this matter. It will he seen that only the Argus aud Star of this city are definitely opposed to rnakiug the law square with public sentiment in the matter. The Bangor Times ami Brunswick Telegraph acknowledge that it is not quite just to brand with the stain of illegitimacy the offspring of parents who are only guilty of a violation oi grod taste. We hope next winter to see a Legislature which will dare to relieve these ill-judging people of the pains and penalties which the law now threatens I hut never executes. IS OPINIONS OF THE I‘BE88. (From the Portland Arens 1 Misceoenation Still IJnlawect — Quite contrary to our expectation the House of Kepresentaiives at Augusta put a veto on the attempt to repeal the law forbidding the intermarriage of whites witli negroes ami In dians, by a vote of 77 lo 4<>. The result oc casions a prolonged whine of grief ironi the social equality negiophilists. There is evi dently a very considerable portion of the rad ical party who desire lo see the races thus in termingled with a view to bring the negro brother up to the desired standuid. Them people should, however, be informed that their proposed process would he a perfect laii urc,:ts most of their hair-brained schemes turn out to be. The Creator has set his seal ,ullon miscegenation. The , l >s a hybrid that possesses neither the mental capacity ot the white nor the physical power and endurance of the black As a class they are inferior to both, and are inca pable of sell-perpetuation. The ollspiing of muiattoes are generally feeble and short lived and the tb.rd generation almost invariably’ die before maturity. The stamp of condem nation lias been set by the Almighty upon the amalgamation of these races, and the law ol the State, which .'sentimental negronh ilists sought to repeal, is,’ simply a reiteration or affirmation of the Divine law. We are therefore gratified that the House had the good sense not to repeal it. [From tlie'Portland Evening Star.) 1 ei haps there is not so pitiable a spectacle on the earth as some communities show Icy the mixing up of the races—utterly destroy ing nationality—and we regard legislation against the intermarriage of whites with ne groes and Indians just as proper and necessa ry as any disability ever created or hinted at by any other provisions of our marriage laws. Hut it is said they will marry. Let them if they must, but Ictus not pm a premeum upon incest or even invite a slate of tilings that social order instinctively tries to avoid. We are not ready to accept this thing as one or the necessary or even natural results ol the issue of the war, and we do not like to see it urged on such grounds. We Icelleve tuut the prohibiliou ol iiuiriitt^c httween pur ties lor the purpose of preserving the purity and the force ot character of our race is emi ueully proper and demanded by all considcr tmns of personal instinct and public pohey. We accord to all men the right ol expression of opinions, but we repudiate the insinuation that Icy opjsising this, we or any body else, do anything to establish or tolerate caste. We oppose it upon an instinctive sense ot propriety and a conviction ot dutv to the community. [From tlie Bath Times.) The majority ot tlie House ol Represent a tive at Augusta have said to the world by their vote on the intermarriage question, that all their prolessious of regard tor the rights ol the negro on the ground ol liii manhood, were but professions merely. 11 the negro is a man, why have they not treated him as a man; why have they not made the law of the State to cease speaking of white men and ot black men; why have they not made it like the law ol God, to sjieak ouly of men? if the negro is not a man, why they have made objections to our southern brethren" treating them as they did any other cattle ? There is nothing, that we are aware of, in the Constitution prohibiting Legislators from stultilying themselves, and therefore perhaps we are captious in suggesting that they have done so. But iftlie Republicans ol the House I who voted with the majority, had no regard tor their owu consistency, they should not have hpeu unmindful of their duly to main tain the iunduuieutai principles ol the Repub lican paity, whenever and wherever they are iu issue. And will they please tell us what ore the principles of tlie Republican party if negro manhood be not one. There has lieen no agitation, no rebellion, no war about sheep, or horses, or mules, or jackasses, and bad we reckoned the negro iu the same categoiy, the halcyon days of peace never would have tied. But we would main tain that the negro was a man; and by the mouth of Dauiel Webster we declared that wherever he was already Iree, free lie should reuiaiu. Did we do this on any other ground than that be is a man. And now shall we listen to the clap-trap of the men w ho have been the oppressors ot the negro Horn tone immemorial, or give heed to their simulated tear that their babies will be piccaninnies from the Brunswick Telegraph] We don t know that it is a matter of grave importance whether the present Legislature enacts a lull or not, to remove the disability in question,—always excepting that some til the members of the Senate may have laten iu close correspondence upon-posta e stamps with some lovely Dinah, proposing marriage If this lie so, as we rather limey it is, then en a< t the btii by all manner ot means, toi it is injurious to the cause of good moials to have law-makers turn lawbreaker:, (live them latitude, and thus discourage a mi«cellau> 4it* miscegenating. As to the House of Repre sentatives—lacking the dignity and high inoi ul excellence of the Senate, its members probably don t regard marriage as of any spe cial binding importance. Perhaps the repeal bad Issuer come. Mot many such marriages will take place in Maine. 1 1 lie fruits ot such imions are so ptdpablv dis gusting, and public sentiment working direct ly upon the sinners so stem, no greater iier malient iujury can result from iutcrniarriaaes. Resides, il you teii these misre^euatiou peo pie they may marry, they will get mad and won t do it. Boys will steal apples like fury, and eat them too, who will not touch an apple you give them. 1 * fr,ni the Kennebec Journal.j rue Belfast Journal makes an ellbrtto com lort its disconsolate friends by assuring them that the Legislature ol Maine has approved negro intermarriage. Should the readers ot the Reliaat Journal happen to get sight ol the truth in the ease they would bud that the Legislature has made no change iu that great Democratic Principle embodied iu tbe Public Lavvs of Maine making harsh discrimination against American citizens on account of color, ine favorite specimen brick ol the approval of caste by the “Did Democracy," is still preserv ed tor their delectation and not tor their coin plaiut. But they don t seeui disposed to treat it fairly. [From the Waterville Mail.J [low wu.r. it Look'.’—Tlie present law of this State prohibit* marriage between whites and blacks. A movement has lieen made in the legislature to remove this restriction, so that any man, black or white, may select a wile to his own liking, whatever complexion be may preler, provided she agrees to it. A tew days ago the house voted to postpone the subject indefinitely, leaving the restriction as it is. A motion to reconsider has not yet lieen acted upon, so far as we have noticed. As this matter now stands it puts Maine in rath er a curious positiou on the "nigger subject generally.’ Nobody can conclude that tlie members who have voted thus are in favor of giving the privilege ol voting. I - A i lie -Ihe motion to reconsider was lost- the member from Waterville, we are sot - ty to say—-vot.ng with the member from Fair field in the negative. Next week we shall give our leaders a Utile ot tlie brilliant light thrown upon tiiis subject by some ol the wise ones. IF'om tlie Bangui Times.) Ihe law amounts to little as it stands; it is practically a dead letter; and could it have been repealed quiet ly, lor oue we should have liked to have seen it dona. The laws oi nature furnish the only necessary restrictions in this matter. If tastes run counter to this law, they will tind means of gratification in spite ol local human statute's. This we see exeiuii litied all alioul us. Theielore, in justice to the innocent oilspring of these ill-assorted allian ees, we would have the law repealed. It does not make one union less of this description, winle it ilhglteiiiuUxex all tlie issues of such unions. Ilad the friends of repeal lought tlie question on its true merits and not have at tempted to make political capital out of it we eau but believe the result would lieen ditleient. As it is, the sense of right iu our people wtU yet wipe the law from our statute books. New 1 ark Mamrr Tree*. In the Press ot' the 1st iust, “Trail,” In me tlciug the discussions before the Board of Ag riculture, said: There lias been much Injury done in this suite by some ol the New York nursery trees. Like Peter Pindar’s razors, they are “made to sell.” drafted on small bits ol the roots ol old trees, and planted out thickly in the nursery, they grow up rapidly ami lank like whip-sticks, and when brought liitber and planted out in the open ground, subject to the winds and storms, like leebie children, they yield to the aide elements and die. A correspondent in the Press ol the (Sth Inst., over the initials “E. P. W.,” seems to object to this statement and proceeds to say • that he has tree* growing selected, some from the Rochester, N. Y. nurseries, and some from Saco, which have had the fame treatment for ten years, aiul the New York trees areas healthy and fruitful as the Maine ones. He says he is gratified with Mr. doodale's coming to the defence [of the New York trees| by ibe disciiminating remark that good trees from New York, like good trees Irom any other place—were good trees. Surely “Traxi said nothing against Ilia good trees from western New York; his objections only went to “some | of the New York nursery trees”—itnphi: g I that it is not so with all: but to show that I notwithstanding Mr. Goodale's “defence," he thinks as “Traxi" does on the subject, the following is presented for the consideration of E, P. W. and all others interested in the sub ject, Irora Mr. Good ale 's Eighth Annual Re port, as Secretary of the Maine Board of Agii culture, p.p. 157,158: Although the matter has been already Inci dentally alluded to, 1 feel that I should lie »^‘e.Torthy should nothing more be said lo W.-.L„e orL'hardists ol Maine horn plan tine ~73£Sn rovt'yraJteditri eii; such as aie rant anil hawked about llie State l»y iguo tr,e vendeM N. 1and in r,el*M>oihood of Rochester, myself seen hunT* V ac®' lly millions.

Pr <>'ut Ma ne. Now a tree can I* loot-gran"] such a way that it shall be as good ds atr^ grown by budding on a seedling stock in the nursery, but this would involve the use ol an entire seedling root by grafting it at the collar which would be nothing more or less than stock-grafting at the surface ol (be ground, and would tuvolveas much or more labor than tbe ordinary method. But these western trees arc made by working a scion on % bit ol root sufficient to keep it aiive until it throws out roots of its own. The work is done in winter, when there is notluug else to do, and they are dibbled out in spring, and uo farther labor is given except horsc-noeing between the row s, until they are sold. When grow u they are simply rooted cutting!. Thickly plan led in rich soil, they soon run up into preUy trees to outward appearance, btt when liftoff are lound to be lurnished with only a little tuft of fibrous roots, unable to suppoit tbe tree properly when transplanted, and. worse still, they are destitute ol the energy and citalitu oi trees fruited upon entire seedling stoeks. 1 robably nineteen twentieths ol the apple trees brought into this State for the last ten years, are of this sort, and althoic'h m some cases they live several yeais, vet 1 have never scon an instance of what might he deemed fair success; anil it is undoubtedly true, that not one in a hundred has lived to come Into bearing. The most successful in stances are those where they die outright at uuce, and involve uo farther tioiibie and dis appointment; but sometimes they live and linger lor years, until the on liuidist is lain to dig (bem out and be rid ol the sight ol them. Too often, being ignorant ol the real trouble, be is discouraged, and concludes that all at tempts at fruit-culture are useless. The foregoing extract is worthy of grave consideration, and should lie circulated far and wide amongst the agriculturists and lov ers ol the apple family throughout the State. _ Traxi. Transplanting Trees. To tue £i>itou or the Press: After my lust eoimuunieation to your paper in reply to some remarks of your correspon dent Traxi, I did not propose to again trouble your columns on the subject; but 1 find, in your this morning's issue, au article signed by him In which several authorities are quoted to prove that my (alleged) recommendation to transplant without using water, was unwise. My only object in this is to say, that your correspondent is in error. I did not advise transplanting without the use of water. I only said that after the tree was transplanted it should be mulched to save subsequent wa tering. It is to be sure of little consequence, but 1 do not like to see myself confronted with an array ol authorities to prove a method to be correct, of which I did not assert the contrary. Feb. 12. J. W.
