On motion of lion. Howard, an. ^tYgyo^-’w Ormc, Horatio Bridge, and Hon. E- ITPrench. This committee met at the City Hal .111 \\ ed nesdav evening,duly Hi and among those pres ent in addition to the Committee, weie Hon. \V111. I*. Fessenden, Maj. Gen. O. O Howard, Senator Howe, of Wteeonsiu, Secretary McCui loili, lion. Horatio hLiiig,Hon. J.H. Rice,Hon. S. Ferhum, Ex-Gov. H. J. Auder^ou, lion. E. B. French, and Hon. K. Wallaeli. Hon. S. fVrliam was elected cliairnian, Lie welly u Deane, secretary, and W in. S. liuut iugton, treasurer. Various reports were then madt* of donations ami collections, w hich indi Gated the liveliest sympathy in tins communi ty in Isdialf of the needy and sulfering amoug you. The reports were chiefly from Maine men who had earnestly and ol their own accord set about at ouce doing what they could to gather means for alleviating tin* preseut great distress in your sorrowing city. The mmiilicent con tribution of $l,(MH>by George A. Bailey, Esq., formerly of Forthu.d, but fur many vc&is in business here, was also announced. This, we believe is the largest donation by any one per hoii 111 me numerous uiMuriwuuuiu maue. iu this In-hall all over the laud, and the prompt ness and quietness with which it was done ren ders it all the more praiseworthy. The touching appeal published under author ity of yourself and Messrs. Bai nes and McLel lan was also read. Generous contribution* were then made by Gen. Howard, Secretary McCulloch, C. A. Pitcher, Esq., and others. The committee proceeded to district the whole city carefully, and appointed sub-com mittees for all these as follows: President's House—Hon. Hugh McCulloch. State Department—George E. Baker, Esq. War Department—Col. li. Clay Wood and Mai. S. Dana. Treasury Department—Messrs. J. F. Hart ley and T. J. Hobbs. interior Department—Messrs. A. C. Spaul ding and L. Deane. Post Office Department—Hon. G. W. Mc Lel lan and Hon. Horatio King. Navy Department—Messrs. H. Bridge and S. P. Brown, Quartermaster General’s Office—Thbmas K. Jones aud J. H. Kimball. * Internal Revenue Bureau—Messrs. E. A Rollins and Charles E. Pike. Second Auditor’s Office—Hon. E. B. French. Freed men’s Bureau—Brig. Cen. Charles H. Howard and W. P. Drew.

Bankers and Brokers—Ex-Gov. Anderson and W. IS. Huntington. In accordance with a vote, a committee was Appointed to wait on the ministers ol Washing ton and confer with them in relation to taking up subscriptions in their churches. The next day subscription papers were perpaied, at the head of which was a copy of the “appeal” above referred to.— I send you w ith this letter these original pa pers, which may he interesting for present and future examination. A circular letter was also addressed to the pastors of the several churches, communicating the above vote, and their response is indicated by the items in the accompanying account. At a later day a sec ond circular was issued, asking lor donations of clothes. A copy of each circular is here with enclosed. The work was pushed on with great zcaJ.— On all hands the collectors met with tlic most cordial sympathy, though most of those called on for help Lad no social or business relations with Portland and were strangers to her citi zens and our State. Every one seemed to feel the urgency of the call and agencrous willing ness to respond. In some instances the amounts mentioned in the lists do not indicate the entire donation by individual signers.— Many gentlemen sent sums ol money private ly to personal friends whose needs they hail an especial interest in ministering to. Above $900 are known to the executive committee to have beeu sent in this way, aud there was doubtless more. Members of (Joi^grj-ss also sent individually. In this connect 'ion wo note that Sykes, Chiulwick &l-o., of Willards’ Ho tel, sent b'ifh, and Jlon.T. D. Eulleiy.'jjjluo.— As these and the above-referred-io sums in no sense passed through our bauds, they do not appear ill our statement. Several packages of clothes were Also forwarded. 'The sums collected before the organization of the committee Were Low aided by the gen tlemen who obtained them, hut the amounts were generally returned to the coin mil tee in the list of subscriptions. The YAoneyicOllefcted under direction of the committee was deposit ed in the First National Bank, wifb Life cash ier, W. S. Huntington, who uad kindly con sented to act as our treasurer. It was suppos ed that you would have drawn the balances from time to time as Last as any Considerable sum accrued, but there seems to have been some misunderstanding at the Back on this point. The particulars of Mr. Huntington's receipts have been made known to you hy the account sent October 18, iGGli, aud hence mere ly the aggregate is set down in our accompa nying statement. Since his account was made up, several small sums have been handed in for payments ol subscriptions. These were at once lorwarded to you, and appear in oiu state ment. ii win ne perceived irom me ngures we give you that full twelve thousand dollars ($12,000) have been collected here lor this pubic aud hu- | mane purpose. We must especially thank the Globa ottioe for the cheerfulness with which they gratuit ously printed the numerous circulars, Je., the 1 committee found it necessary from tmie to time to publish. This work was done in addi tion to generous i*e<jQtaiary contribnnon* from the proprietors and the employees in tneir of- ! fice. la the same connection wt* also mention the Chronicle and Intelligencer of the daily press of this city, while to these papers, and the Star and itepublicau, we are under large obligations lor valuable and free assistance in editorial aud advertisement. The meetings of the executive committee were many, hud their work aud that ol tlie col lectors very arduous; hut all these services were rendered most cheerfully, and each seem ed to vie with the other in zeal lor carrying on so good a cause. We cannot close without saying that wo heard with especial pleasure that you were so greatly blessed in your efforts to provide for the wants of your afflicted auil destitute towns men. We are also rejoiced to hear that your city has, in the few months which have passed since the conflagration raged, made such rapid steps towards recovering from the effects of the disaster. We trust that a lew years will suffice to blot out all external traces of the woe and desolation, and that the tact of the Great Fire will only live in history. So long as that rec ord lasts, it will lie good for men to remember how cordial, fraternal, and Christian was the common response in sympathy and means for the needy and sorrowing in those dark hours of calamity which hung over your beautiful City. >v liu respeci, your obedient servant. t<.

Editob;—! was glad you published the Ildus and, uay% upon the late vote in tbo legis* laturc upon Repealing the act making illegal the intermarriage of whites and blacks. It is gratifying to observe that all tuunes that are not mere Jiates; ami, Jhat re|»i«»ent persons, vtho have’a ^reputationi elsewhere tkjBupon their boarding-house register, are ranged upon the liberal sMc. A distinguished democratic politician ol'this city told me to-day, that when lie was a mem ber ol the legislature years ago, the late .fudge 1 reble wrote him a letter advising the abroga tion or this silly law, and sent a bill to ucooni* plish it. It seems, however, tliat a measure liberal democrats were ready for twenty years ago, is too much progress for freesoil antislav try politicians, who swarm to the party ol equal rights without distinction of race or color, now il has majorities at its back ami offices and lion ors to giro instead ol persecution. It is claimed that all who dciuauu ui« of this arrogant and insulting statute, ignore a natural repugnance which white jieoplo have to blacks iu such au intimate relation as mar riage. But the very reverse is true. They in sist upon it, and rely upon aud assert its suffi ciency without impertinent legislation. And the repugnance is much stronger and wider in its scope than between these two classes. A refined white woman wontd ordinarily object to marrying a drunkard, a foan filthy in habit or speech, a silly man, or a man so empty of elevated sentiments that he could echo to the applauses of a ribald crowd, as his own seri ous opinions, the vulgarity of Mr. Nasby. But in spite of this general law, which en sures the intermarriage of persons of the same color, character, taste, position in society, and intelligence, instances do occur ol white wo men preferring to marry black men, of deli cate women marrying tilthy sensualists, and of strong-minded women marrying fiat and driv elling noodles. Of such mesalliances, 1 doubt if it can he made out that the evil eoiiHeqnen cch to tlie parties or to society are any greater in tlie fif»t than iu tho other oases. Why net leave the^irst case to be regulated by natural instinct aud the good sense of tlie parties con . cerned, Hanked by tlie advice of friends, the iu Huential Mrs. (Jrundy among them, as we do the other cgses? Soothed by these considera tions, most white fathers, even in regions not secure uuder the protection oi similar statutes to ours, “re-enacting,” as Mr. Webster says, “the law of God,*' are able to sleep nights tiu tmtured with wakeful forebodings of black sons-in-law. Why then disturb the law it is asked. Be cause where an exceptioual affection asserts it self, as it has, and will again, against a conven tional prejudice ami tin* Standard of pub lie pro priety, both very strong intluoiices, it will, and does easily defy an arbitrary law. Beoanse when in a matter so purely personal as mar riage, the parties please themselves, and settle down into a quiet domesticity, sanctified by mutant faithfulness, and tlie respectful love ol children, it is impertinent, it is cruel, nay it is impious for society to interfere. Because in a country, where the presence of two million per sons, who can claim kinship with our race as well as with the African, asserts the natural coiupatAiility of the two,it is a piece of Peckmif fan white-washing, and not sound Christian morality, to prohibit marriage where we con nive at adultery. Because it is insolent and presumptuous to assert in a State recognising I he equality of meu our superior refinement and nobility as against any other class of oui fellow creatures, since jtliat superiority confess edly ceases tlie moment it is asserted, the trm gentleman being recognised by his courtes> and absence of pretension, and the men whe on the stump, in tho newspaper, or in the leg islature are afraid the purity of their stock may he questioned, unless they keep buwling the it protests that they icovt marry a negro, are the very ones in reference to whom judicious list eners think the question of compatibility should lieyer be raised, unless from the neyro't sid*. There are specific aud more praclical consid erations. More than one member of the legis lature knows the instance among his own con stituency of black and white persons, who have lived together in the relation of husband and w ile perhaps to old age. Does it make these homes any bi tter sanctuaries for the pres ervation of childish innocence to affix upon them the blot of ill-lame? Many of those pool people, married only by the laws of God, art religiously inclined, does it make them any bet ter Christians to withhold from a relation kuil by tho love of children and the mutualiy-boriu sorrows of a life-time the sanction which tin law throws around unions not half so faithful ly kept, to keep them out of churehes, except upon conditions that it would lie impious in them to perform, and to oppress their conscienc es with a sense of guilt towards Grid, who hail only violated a conventional stum I »Mug-block of esate. legislation? Some ol these men have industriously aocumukt ted little as tabs. Why bastardize their children ho that they may not rightfully inherit them? Some of their chil dren have gone to oui great war to light, to dis lodge from the control of the nat-pm a cruel hatred ol' the poor, that was driviug us fast to wards barbarism, and have fallen there on the field aud in the hospital. Who would lie mean enough to accuse the statute-baseness of their birth, to prevent their' fathers from receiving the pittance tlie government allows as a com pensation torn Child sacritieed for the coun try ?* Is a law a man would be ashamed to qhote on such an occasion fit to stand on the Statute Book? X. Tla«> Quarrel of the kxpodlion C'oauaiai*. aionrni. .Some friend in Paris sends us a pamphlet, printed io that city, in which are set forth the merits ofa very pretty quarrel relating to the Great Exposition between our Honorary Com missioner, Mr. Louhat, on the one side, and on the oilier the United States Legation and the Chief Commissioner, Mr. Beck with. \V«* have called it a quarrel between these paities, though to speak accurately the quarreling seems to l>e all on the side of Hr. Louhat.— The pamphlet is published by (hat gentleman and contains all the correspondence connected with the matter and his own statement of grievances. The substance of the complaint which In* brings against the Legation and Mr. Beckwith is that he has not received at their hands such nu amount of deference ami con sideration as he felt to be due to him. He seems to l>e an uneasy individual, with a very inordinate sense of his ow n dignity and conse quence. On his own showing, his conduct toward the Legation has liecn as offensive and troublesome as it well could be, and the won der of those who read his pamphlet will 1>« not that he should have been snubbed by Mr. Big elow,an«l rebuked by Gen. Dix, but that eitlier of those gentlemen should have been able to exhibit towards him so much patience and for bearance as they have. The publication of this pamphlet does not seem to us likely to benefit him much either in the estimation of Congress to whom it is addressed, or of the people at large. A Si ft Gulak Dukovkky.—A western ex change says that two men were recently en gaged in securing drift-wood on the Missis sippi, wlnju they noticed, at sonic distance from the bank, a large trunk. As it seemed sound they exerted themselves to bring it ju, and, with much difficulty, succeeded. On exam ining their prize they found that one end had been partly split open, and appeared to liavo been filled up with moss or leaves. The curi osity of the men was excited, and they went to work, ami by inserting wedges in the crack, succeeded in splitting tlie log open, when they discovered that it was hollow on the in side, and that the cavity was partially filled up with what, at first sight, appeared to bo the lull form of a man, wrapped up in a bufialo robe. Naturally, their nerve*, were a little shaken unexpected a sight, but at lengt h they siiniielently recovered themselves to prosecute the examination. They removed the bufialo lobe, whit'll, although beariug indicat ions oi gival age, was .still unbroken, am) discovered inside the skeleton of a mail, the tlesli entire ly wasted away, but tlie bones still adhering together, and preserving the form and outline Complete, lb side the ... of this departed brave were found, it is said, a tomahawk a quiver full of arrows and and a l>ovv, all ex hibiting marks of great age, and doubtless hav ing been preserved from decay by the exclu sion of tlie air.

Thursday.—Enos Dolly, Michael Murry and an other Michael Murry, on search and seizure process es, paid $22.20 each. JBrutnl Murder. Yesterday afternoon a foul and brutal mur deT tfas committed, in the sailor boardiug house, kept by Mrs. Rolierf Douglass, iu the rear of Messrs. Rumery' & Burnham’s packing establishment on Franklin, between Fore and Commercial streets. The name of the mur dered man is Charles Johnson, otherwise known as “Dutch Charlie,” a German, who has resided in this country for many years, aud who has been employed by Mrs. Douglass, since the death of her husband, as an assistant and a runner for her house. The facts as: we gather them at the police office are the follow ing: Henry Keenan, steward of hark Mary E. Libby, arrived in that vessel in Boston Tues day night. He came to this city in the train Wednesday evening, and applied at Mrs. Douglass’ for hoard, having, as he Sftys, always stopped there, but was refused by Johnson.— Alter some words with Johnson,) ho left, swearing he would have his (Johnson's life be fore twenty-four hours. Between tw o and three o’clock yesterday af ternoon, while Johnson was seated iu the room talking with Mrs. Douglass, Keeuan entered, and, without a word of altercation, as Mrs. 1>. says, drew a jackuife from his sleeve and stab bed Johnson twice—one of the blows iu the abdomen, the other in the region of the heart. Johnsou sprang up, exclaiming, “I am killed!” and started out of the house; a few steps from the door he fell dead. The blows were given bo quickly and unex pectedly, that Mrs. Douglass had not time to interfere. After they had been struck she seized Keenan’s hand and took the knife from him. Indoiugthfe she cut one of his lingers so that it bled profusely. After stubbingJ ohnson, Keenan escaped. In formation of the murder was forthwith com municated to the police, and searcli was made for him. Deputy Marshal Irish and officer Barhour traced him, by the blood that oozed from the wound on his finger, from the house to India street, and thence to Washington street. A t this latter point they took a sleigh, and when about two-thirds the distance to the bridge, overhauled him. Officer Barbour jump ed out of fii<‘ sleigh and arrested him, Keenan remarking, “I am the man you wraut.” He was tal^en to the lock-up, where he confessed stab bing Johnson twice with the kuife, but said Johnson first knocked him down. This is de nied by Mrs. Douglass, who avers that John Still did not touch Keenan after he came into the house, until lie had Wen stabbed. Keenan was perfectly sober wlicit lie was ar rested, and did not exhibit any indications that he haul lieen drinking. He is ahrttU twenty six years of age, and has a good looking ap pearance. It is supposed jealousy was the cause of the attack U|K>n Johnson. Johnson was about twenty-four years old, and is represented to have been a very indus trious man, aud of quiet disposition Coroner Hall commeuced au inquest upon the body yesterday afternoon. The jury, after viewing the body, adjourned to 9 o'clock this morning, when Dr. Huukins, who is making a postmortem examination of it, will give his stimony. Tuk Prest says that eight illegitimate chil dren have lieen recently boro or are ah »ut to be launched into life at the Alms House. It is an interesting matter of inquiry how the re porter was able to stale the uumkr so pre cisely. (The “Reporter” acknowledges the compli ments of his brother of the Oxford Democrat) as per above. Our information was received from tire Overseers of the Poor, who have these erring damsels iu charge. They are “reverend seignorsv who never miss fire. They are not surface men. They look, by force of their posi tion, far into the interiorof the subjects brought before them for investigation. They will tell you whether a supplicant for charity has money saved up, or has beeu swigging ah'; or whiskey, or is about adding one or more to the papula tion—as well as any adept in the land; ami wo to the one who expects “to come it over them.” The babies will enter upon the stage of action, the Democrat may believe without doubting. Second sight is blindness to their skill iu de tecting “the situation.” The babies will be squalling iu due time]. Important Decision by tiie Law Court. In Hovey vs. Hobson, which is one of the actions brought to recover the Neal estate on State and Pine streets in this city, a decision lias been received from the Law Court, decid ing that if tlic original deed of Stephen Neal was void by reason of his being non compos, the title is equally void in the hands of subse quent purchasers, though the latter did not know the in< ouipetency of the original grant or; in other words, a void title derived by deed from a non compos does not become valid by being transferred to third parties, who are bona tide purchasers; or to speak still more plainly, a person who has no title cannot give one.. * Handy Work.— In the window of the Ful ton Market, No. 110 Federal street, is exhibit ed a very pretty model of a yacht, made by George Cline, whose only instrument in mak ing it was a penknife. The sails are made of wood and so neatly cut, carved and painted as to represent canvas. It is a specimen of skill and ingenuity, and is well worth looking at. Hopkins at the above stand lias received a lot of fVesli halibut, which will he offered for sale this morning. We understand that Messrs. Knight & Clark, Fresco Painters, have employed Mr. Peter Falcs, of Philadelphia, to take charge of their fresco department. Mr. Falcs is an art ist of established reputation, and has just re turned from Europe with the latest designs of modern frescoing. Messrs. W. & C. are for tunate in securing the services of so valuable an artist. Parties wishing their houses decor ated in style, should call on Wright & Clark. Liquor Seizures.— The Deputy Marshals yesterday seieed small quantities of liquor in the shops of Richard D. Duddy, on Spring street; Thomas Gill, on Centre street; Marga ret Rest, on Fore stieet; and Hugh Kelly, on Fore street. This does not look as if “the number les sons as the ides of March approach,” ns the Argus remarked yesterday. We understand therein an opportunity to have a lecture from JAMES It. Lowell, ill this city. No man's popularity restn on a sounder basin than that of the distinguished author of the “Biglow Papers,” and we hope we may have a chance to see and hear him. We learn that I>r. Sweet is meeting with good success, and we advise those interested to give him a call. OtjM S i ki H is 'JV rluOs (Iik sifpets arc notrrry pleas*»t, and wo dbubt if the horse* liuil them agreeable.

In the good old revolutionary times when our country produced men not gentlemen, it was not thought inconsistent with their man hood to fell trees, saw woqd, plant corn, or in fact perform any labor that the condition of the limes domauded for the comfort ol their fami lies. The women, good souls, in those days per formed their part of the household labor, spun awl wove cloth, and cooked dinners. As a nat ural consequence dyspepsia aud phthisic were unknown to them, and they lived in a delight ful enjoyment of health, dying at last only be cause their husbands bad died, and they bad no one else to spin for. No mention lias been made ol the health of the stronger sex at this time, but we would naturally enough infer that felling trees, building houses aud raising crops was as favorable to their heath as spinning and weaving was to the weaker sex. Now we are very glad to know that our grandmothers took such good care of their families, aud we hope their lords and masters appreciated them as much as their present ad mirer, Traxi. Since cloth could lie obtained in no other way, homespun manutacture was necessary, and they did well to spin and weave all the family required. But now that the fac tory looms furnish the cloth at half the cost aud labor, why sigli for the spinning wheel for tlie women any more than the disused imple ments of men’s work for them. For pity's sake, don’t send woman hack into the slow work of the past, unless you put the whole age back to keep her company. Why not suggest that men go back to their old ways of working and throw aside all their new-fangled, labor saving machines. Why not recommend them to pound corn instead of grinding it, tliresh wheat with flails instead of machines, since this exercise w ill improve their health, keep them from loafing about the streets, and make them fit for husbands. If wo understand the writer's grounds for the re-introduction of tlio honorable arts of spinning and weaving, they are just those,— better health for the womeu, better morals and better wives. Now in the first case, we had never before heard that the praetiso of these arts was a recognized antidote for dys pepsia and phthisic, hut if such is really the tact, why not let both sexes avail themselves of the remedy, and instead of “Female Col leges” for instruction in these arts, have hos pitals or asylums where all can be benefited alike. Dr. Lewis, if enlightened about this simple remedy, will no doubt gladly add it to his system of movement cures. The second' advantage named is, that it will keeji women out of the streets and improve their morals. As if the present time did not furnish its different work for women as well as men. The requirements of housework to day aro as different from those of our grand mothers’ time as the work of the other sex is from tueir granutatners employments, it a woman can’t really find anything in tbe house to occupy her time now-a-days, if there isn’t any stitching, ripping, making, mending* sweeping or overseeing the house, then let’lier go back to the arts of a still earlier age and take to embroidering tapestries. Isn't there just as much work for her now as ever? Aren’t the houses constructed different ly? Don’t the demand for cloth keep pace with the supply so that, there is a much greater quan tity to be made up for the family? Must we bring back the spinning wheels simply to keep her employed? With the requirements of the present styles of dress, whether necessary or not, a woman could not keep her family sup plied with cloth if she spun from morning till night. Then where is the advantage of reviv ing its use? For that last grand and noble aim to make them “fit for wives.” Why not mad men tit for husbands by having them cut wcmmI, draw water and perform the innumerable household chores that their revolutionary grandfathers did? dimply because we keep pace with the requirements of the present t ime, we must not forget to practise those of a bye-gone age if such is your royal pleasure.— Yes we will live in four-storied houses with un derground kitchens, we will keep these free from dust from garret to cellar, we will do all household cooking, make and mend garmen ts always dress tastefully lor ,y«*ur critical eye, and still weave and spin, never be seen in the streets, make soap,qi^^fflbrm any bygone w oik in our leisure time—all thiK if you will ac knowledge us the lienor ol' “F. \V„” “lit tor wives.” _ B' THE STATE. —'flic Bangor Whig reports a meeting held in that city on Wednesday to consider the sub jftet of the olistructioiis which are destroying the navigation of the Penobscot River. Tbe sense of tbe meeting was expressed in two resolutions which were adopted by it, the ' lirst praying the Legislature to “enact such laws aw in their wisdom may he deemed suit able to effectually prevent the destruction of the navigation of the Penobscot River by the accumulation of the refuse of saw mills in its bed;”and the second appointing a committee to be present at tbe hearing before the Legislative Committee to whom the subject is referred, andfparticularly instructing such committee to oppose any compromise with the owners of saur mills, by which they shall be allowed to throw sawdust into the, liver. —The Maeliias Union learns that a responsi ble man has offered to build a wharf, store house and passengers* "accommodation room, on the Last Mac hi as side of tbe \iver, at tbe Toll Bridge, to accommodate the City ol Rich mond. —Tlie Whig of yesterday says:—“The third pier of the railroad bridge across the mouth of the Keuduskeag is now being put in place and weighted down.

The Machias Un ion says it is the worst remembered on that river. The swamps hot frozen, the snow deep; lakes and stre:uus not frozen sufficiently to ad mit of hauling bay and grain from one point to another. To add to the discouragement, for ten days past the weather has been warm and much rain has fallen. On Machias river hut few teams will pay their way. —Tire Machias river was clear of ice last week, (February 6th) so that vessele arrived at the wharf at Machias. — 1 hfl b arm mm ion Chronicle relates that a soldier’s widow, in Temple, Mrs. Mower, was unexpectedly visited last Thursday by the re turned soldiers in that town, iu a body, well armed with keen axes, who made an attack up on her woodpile, cutting their way through it in a most effectual manner. At the same time, the soldiers wives and daughters entered the house, and deposited in the pantry an abun dant supply of family rations. Mrs. Mower's husband sleeps in a soldier's grave far away at the Mouth, but returned comrades are watch ful of the comforts of the soldier's w'idow and children. —Any officer or private of the 9th Mo. regi ment, who can give any information concern ing the fate of Edward B.
