Dinri iBIelltffcDre iron. ilie Jaffa Colony. THE JAFFA COLONY—THE OTHER SIDE OF THE PICTURE. [From the Baugor Times.] The lastest reports from Palestine—indeed, most of the reports from the flrst—have been decidedly unfavorable to the success of Elder Adams's ellorts to colonize Palestine, and not at ail complimentary to .that gentleman's dis cretion or honesty. These reports, however, have come Irom sources other than the im mediate mein hers of the Polony, and the P ture has been drawn anything hut pro"' h. ly. To-day we give the other side, <■ ,™ in the letters of members of the t <j > ■ > present the subject in a dirtcrent Ipbt, be seen. The extracts arc from letters shown toils by a gentleman of tlus city to whom they were forwarded by their recipients. Ol their genuineness we can vouch. We give the extracts without expressing any opinion in the premises. T « . The flrst is a letter from J. B. Ames to Capt, C. E. Cobh ol South Orrington, and is dated at Jaffa, Dee. 2. lie commences by al lusion to what the Colony hail accomplished in the way of house building and sowing. The soil is dark and rich. There are no'rocks — Pan have just as much land as they want. Some of the grain is up and looking finely.— Everything works in their favor, although there had 1 oil some sickness and a few deaths —mostly children. Their meetings are at tended by many strangers and foreign con suls. The mass of the people are friendly.— An old Turk, his next door neighbor, volun tarily offered him wheat and barley at the lowest price, with the privilete to pay when convenient. Another worth a million dollars said they could have all the money they want ed. Their lot is not all lenced iD, aud any one can come in that chooses—lumber, laths, &e., lying about unguarded—yet none is stolen. Fruit gardens are all about them load ed with oranges and all kinds ol fruit. The letter concludes as follows: “I tell you we are received with kindness by all; still there are some tew—one or two— who want to get back to America. You will ask ‘what for?’ Because they cannot get pork ami beans, pound cake aud such like. There is enough here to eat, but the articles are not ol so tine a quality as in America. Seed wheal is #1 20 per bushel; Hour (good) is from #7 to #10; rice 5 cents per pound: eggs 8 cents per dozcD, and other things in projiortion. There are some things 1 shall want you to tiring me next year—will let you know in time. I am well pleased with the country. I don't put my hands to the plow aud look back.” Another letter from G. W. Ames to his brother at South Orrington, William Ames, ami dated at Jaffa, Dec. 10th, states that ten or eleven houses have been built, and others are in process of erection. Over 150 bushels of grain had l>ceii put iDto the ground, and a part of it was looking “first-rate.” it was pleasant there as in Maine during the sum mer. We quote: “Nothing was overrated to us by Bro. Adams, although some that were the most eager to get to Palestine are the first to get discontents ed and apostacise from the faith. Bro. Ad ams says they never had any. They have for gotten what they came to this land for. I think it a glorious thing to live in a country where once dwelt the prophets, patriarchs, and the Messiah himseif. One of the men, an el der in the Church, went so far as to say he would not sow a kernel of wheat. “We have have had a hard time in relation to some tluugs, but it is as well as 1 expected. We are favored by every one. They offer us laud ami grain aud everything that they have, and tell us we may pay them when we get ready. The Arabs are our warmest friends. There are two or three of the Church who are going back it they cau, and they will bring any amount of bes. 1 know they will ior they have commenced it here. 1 have laith to be lieve that more will come out here next year who can make up their minds to bear trials aud hard work for the first year or two. * * in a lew years there will lie more business carried on in Palestine than in any other country* in Asia, ior the french are coming another yea** to build a harbor be. e and a rail road to Jerusalem. “The natives already begin to see that we are tiiendiy to them. They are glad to have us come to their gaidens, aud nothing they have is too good lor us. The orange an i lem on trees are Dreaking down uuder the weight of Iruit. * * * If anybody wants t * live in such a sin-cursed country as the United StaLes let them, but I prefer living in this land. * * You must not think we are all discontented: it is only a few boo bies.” Ln another letter under date of Dee. 28, in reply to one received from his brother, Mr. Ames says: — “We are all quite well, and as happy as cm he. * * What a country to live in where there is a plenty of Iruit and flowers all through the winter! There has been about 500 bushels of grain sowed already, aud Bro. Adams has about 1:100 bushels on hand now, aud they cat, sow all they wish to. If what the natives say is true we can raise more wheat here in one year than they can in Maine in live. Some of thecoiony are getting dissatisfied aud waut to go back, and the rea son is they have never done a day's work, are faultfinding aud growling, and doing all they can to injure Bro. Adams aud ail oi us; and I wish they were back. * * The people ol every name and creed are glad to meet us. except the sectarians, and they are trying to injure us, but we shall come oil conquerors!" it has beeu stated that the Turkish Govern ment refused iroiu the first to grant the col ony privileges indispensable to their success. This is not so. A timiau was granted them by that Government, a copy of which is now at. the State Department at Washington per mitting them to laud their goods free oi duty, aud to pre-empt unoccupied lands on the same terms allowed the natives. This state ment proving incorrect, may not others from the same source lie placed in the same cate gory? _ ■ ■'rice of iVAoney. Our correspondent X. in liisarticlc on “Ratef of Interest,” published Saturday morning, re marked that Massachusetts had Ml refused to allow auy increase of the rate of interest, and proceeded to argue that any change of the law in one Kew England State would be disastrous unless the same change would be made by the other States. It now appears that on Friday the interest bill which has been for some time before the Massachusetts Legislature passed the House by a vote ot 108 to 81. The bill was pass ed precisely as it came from the Senate, and r aids as follows: AS ACT CONCERNING THE RATE OF INTEREST. Be it enacted by the Senate and Bouse of Repre sentatives, in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:— Sf.c. When there is no agreement for a dif ferent rate of interest of money, the same shall continue to he at the rate of six dollars - upon one hundred collars for a year, and at the same rate for a greater or less sum, and tor a longer or sliorter time. Sec. it shall be lawful to contract to pay or reserve discount at auy- rate, and to contract tor payment and receipt of any rate of interest; provided, however, that no greater rate of inter est than six per centum per auiiumsiiaU he re covered in auy action, except when the agree ment to pay such greater rate of interest is in writing. Sec. 8. Sections three, four and five of chap ter fifty-three oi the General Statutes, and all acts and part of acts inconsistent herewith are hereby repealed. Sec. 4. This act shall not affect any existing contract or action pending, or existing right of action, and shall take effect on the first day of July next. If X.’s reasoning is correct it will be desira. hie for Maine to conform her legislation to that of Massa jiusetts as speedily as possible. The Boston Advertiser refers to the objections which have been urged against the bill as fol lows : The influences which have supported this lull have been constantly misrepresented by its opponents. So far from being a bill urged by bankers and brokers, we believe it to have been really urged from the other direction. The strongest-influence in its tavor has been the general movement among business men who are borrowers and not lenders of money and who have occasion every day to test prac tically the working of our present law, in its effect upon capital and its embarrasmeut of the necessary operations of commerce. The lend ing class have with good judgment abstained from a conspicuous advocacy of the measure if indeed it is worth while to talk of a lending class in a community like this, where he who lends to-day may have to solicit a loan tor his relief next week. To the real advocates of the measure, the ac tive business men of the Commonwealth, it has not been a very conclusive reply to be told,' as they have been, by its opponents, that Bix per cent, is as high a rate of interest as can he prudently paid in this Commonwealth. The argument is altogether irrelevant, tor it does tbe r,'lH-;i1. Of the usury laws ev Indeed the 1“Cre<“f iu the price of mon thereisa tree murkeX ami the co'urse of excha,.gesPand Will of money-lenders So that if onr1 by,tbe auy class of them cannot afford to nav tit’6 °r certain rate the usury laws will^m*^6 “ them tin- opportunity' of borrowing ioTthat rate, nor will the repeal of those laws .lib.'o them to pay any more, s °“llt>e out a rcpiy wuo ii aouilLS ol uo rejoinder was made to all arguments of this sort a week or two ago in the House, when one of the lead ing members of that body declared that the cheapest money he ever borrowed in his life was some for which he paid five per cent, per month during the panic in 1867. The correct inference which he drew from his own expe rience therefore was that no legislature could foresee the worth of money to a man in a time of scarcity nor undertake to say what he could or could not pay. In everything of this •on men are themselves the best judges of au<* there is as little reason to - IV w'».vP I’,lw*‘r should everiuterpose them to do, as thereTfoMlm . foT to pay above a certoin rai^iddin* them uve,r It may be perfectly true that rnl' i^ -0r p"‘at not afford to pay in the longV,^ *““**?!. can* twenty cents per pound i,,r o ,wi11 8:*y they not best say for themselves who cau any part ular condition of the ,i,lart;!1".,n had better pay above twenty cents t,hey something else? It is an encouragi,,. fU? that the legislature of our State shouhl at W have determined to abandon the futile attorn nr to regulate that which is not to be rcguhitod and which, if it were to lie, is nevertftoto™ le-tter regulated by individual common than by any arbitrary statute’ 0 (-•ndilioa ®f the »®alher» In a few remarks upon Mr. Re mitting the Southern State# definitely to the Control of the military autl.ont.es, Representa tive Pike of this State preiented a few day# since an admirably clear ami instructive sum mary of the evidence now before Congress re specting the state of society in the part of the country to which the bill applies. Mr. Pike’s committee, appointed to investigate the circum stances attending the release of tho murderers of three Maine soldiers, killed in South Caroli na in October, 1865, lias not yet reported. His remarks on that case will therefore have * special interest, as indicating the result of that investigation. After showing that the people ol the South never governed themselves, but since the surrender of tho rebel forces in 1865 have been virtually controlled by the President, under the military power, and that Mr. Stev ens’s hill proposes not to change hut to regu late and define this military authority, Mr. Pike proceeds as follows: That is tho first point I wish to make. The second is that there is an urgent necessity for action on the p&fffcuf Congress. And 1 submit to the Houses two instances—representative in character-^which illustrate the necessity for action. The first is that of three soldiers stationed in October, 1865, in South Carolina. They hap pened to be from my own State. They were detailed to guard a small quantity of cotton at a point on the Savannah river called Brown’s Ferry. Quiet, inoffensive, their good conduct was testified to by the people of the vicinity at a public meeting called soon after their mur der. ludeed these young men seem to have beeu guilty of no offense to anybody except that ol wearing the uniform of the Republic. These soldiers, so stationed,were set upon by, the owner ot the cotton—one of the most con siderable men in that neighborhood—and five others, were murdered in cold blood, and thrown into the river. There was no alterca tion or provocation of any kind whatever. The murder was deliberate aud fiendish to the last degree. i lie men committing tne crime were arrest ed, tried, and convicted before a military com mission sitting in Charleston. The examina tion of witnesses occupied some two months, and every opportunity was given to the accus ed to make a defence, the Government procur ing the attendance of their witnesses. Four of the murderers were convicted, a fifth escaped arrest, and the other was not identified by the witnesses. These convicts were imprisoned in Castle Pinckney, thence transferred to the Dry Tor tugas, and thence by order of the President to Fort Delaware, from which they were released on hal>ias cur/jus by Judge Hall of the district Court. Mr. Cooper—Let mo ask the gentleman a single question. The gentleman from Maine states that these prisoners were removed from the Dry Tortugas to Fort Delaware by author ity of tile President. 1 ask the gentleman to state whether he does not know the fact to be that the Secretary of War assumes all the re sponsibility lor that removal as having been done by himself? Mr. Pike—That is the fact. I make no point on the President on this account. Alter being released these men returned to their place of residence at Anderson, in South Carolina, and there they were received by a general ovation of the people of the place. A witness before the select committee appointed to examine in to this case testified that the opinion was uni versal in Anderson that the men convicted were the murderers. Hut that made no dif ference. The people turned out and sanction ed the lminlei by welcoming the murderers. And no step has since been taken to punish these men. Gen. Sickles, commanding that department, says that they would he acquitted by a jury of the vicinage no matter what the proof of their guilt. The second instance is that given by General Schofield in his testimony before the select committee 1 have relerred to. The case has al ready been given in the newspapers, hut I pre fer the House should have it in authentic form, and so 1 ask the Clerk to read front the testi mony of General Schofield, who is well known to be no radical. He says the Watson case is a "lair type of a large number ol cases in Vir ginia.” x send to the Clerk’s desk the testimony of General Schofield. The Clerk read as follows: "This freedman who was killed by Dr. Wat sou was a servant of one ol’ liis neighbors, whose name I do not recollect. He was driv ing the lamily of his employer to church on Sunday morning. Dr. Watson’s family were also being driven to church at the same time, time by auothar colored man, neither gentle man being present. This colored man attempt ed to drive by the earriage of Dr. Watson s' family at a point where the road was narrow and it was difficult for the carriages to pass each other. In the attempt to pass the car- j riages came in collision, the spoke of one of the wheels in Dr. Watson’s carriage was broken. Probably his family were somewhat endanger ed, but no one was injured. The carriages were extricated and passed on to church. One, two, or more days afterward Dr. Watson called at the plantation of his neighbor, where this col ored man was at work in the field, saw his em ployer and other members of his family and told them he had come to chastise the negro for the insult offered to his family. He went into the field where the negro was at work and commenced caning him with a small cane, ask ing him at the same time why he ran against his carriage, or something of the kind. The negro started to run, the doctor called upon him to halt, which l believe he did at first, the doctor pursuing him, however, as if to con tinue Ins caning; the negro man ran again; the doctor then drew his pistol, snapped the cap, which exploded without, igniting the pow der, pulled the trigger again and fired, killing the negro, or rather wounding him so tliat. h* died within a day or two. He attended the ne gro himsell, and also got another physician to examine him. As soon as the wound proved fatal, He presented Himself to a magistrate, and was bound over to appear before what was called an ‘examining court’ in some small sum of five hundred or a thousand dol lars. He appeared before that court composed of five magistrates. Tile facts were developed pretty much as 1 have stated them, I think, by witnesses before the court. The court decided to discharge liim, which discharge, under the laws of Virginia, is an acquittal and a bar against any further prosecution or trial.” 1 do not select these because they are worse than numerous other instances. They are not. The records of the Freed men’s Bureau are'full of just such cases. An enormous number of murders have been committed during the past year in those States. Probably not less than twelve to fifteen hundred soldiers, freedmen, and Union men have been killed. It is almost incredible that in any part of this country such a condition of affairs should exist. But it is uot worth while to indulge in sentimental de nial when the facts are so well authenticated. The select committee to which I have refer red, in the exercise of the power conferred on them by tho House, called u)u>n the depart ment commanders to state to them the condi tion of affairs within their respective com mands. These States are divided into four depart ments; the Virginias are under General Scho field ; the Carolinas compose General Sickles’s department; General Thomas has Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, and Mississippi; and General Sheridan Louisiana, Arkansas, and Texas. Three of these gentlemen and General Baird and General Wood, who for merly hail commands in those States, have been before the committee. Their testimony agrees in these important particulars: 1. Justice is denied practically to Union men and freedmen, and offenses against them go unpunished. There have been several in stances of the murder of soldiers, bnt no pun ishment has ticcn inflicted. ?• That up to this time there 1ms been no change for the better since the suppression of the rebellion, bnt rather worse. That unless substantial justice is done to the laboring classes hereafter, and to the Un ion men and northern men who desire to go there to engage in business enterprises, no im provement in the state of affairs can be expect ed. 4. The courts cannot be relied on—neither magistrates nor jurors can be expected to deal justly in cases between whites and freedmen, or lietween those who engaged in the rebellion and Union men. 5. >So far as they have expressed an opinion the department commanders favor a law like [ that now before the House. These gentlemen have had such excellent op portunities for observation, and are so far re moved from temptation to partisan exaggera tion, that I call the attention of tho House to some extracts from their testimony, and ask gentlemen to determine lor themselves wheth er the state, of facts they exhibit does not call for immediate aqtion on the part of the Gener al Government. General Schofield was inquired of in regard to the punishment of crimes committed against freedmen in Virginia, Question. What is the difficult! : is it in the arrest and presentment, or in the disposition of the men who try them? Answer. The difficulty is in the disposition of the magistrates and jurors. Where it is a civil question alone, a question of money, uninflenc ed by any other question,! think they most al ways do justice to the freedmen; hut where that question is affected by any allegation up on the part of white men of insubordination or disrespect or insolence upon the part of the colored men, that allegation will justify him in the opinion of the local magistrates or jurors for inflicting upon the freeStnen any punish ment he may see fit; either by drifin', them oft the plantations without wages, or as has been iloue in some cases, shoutin'- them .Practically if the employer on a plantation chooses to drive a colored man off without his wages, alleging that he was insolent or insub ordinate or neglectful of his duty, he is with out remedy. a he same question was put to General Thom as. Question. What is the difficulty: is it in fail ing to arrest the offenders, or in their trial? Answer. A failing to arrest, unless their at tention is railed to it, and then the trial is gen erally slurred over. Question. Does that observation pertain to all the States you have designated equally, Georgia, Mississippi. Alabama, Kentucky, and portions of Tennessee? Answer. The practice is about the same in eacn. The sentiment of these different loeali n.?i™,t the same; the prejudice against a,‘d freedmen about the same. hIiommT?,' „FroD1 >,,ur knowledge what mnrdi'/wior3' w°uhl he the probability, if a “v whr»™'n,,M in that State (Georgia) < leorgia for m inlcPif the victim a Union man or a negro. If the umrf.rcr was a Un n man or or a negro they would conv,c7hi,o “erv speedily, or il the man had moved intoGeorcil since the war and was known as a north?™ manor a Union mau. Question. Can you suggest auy remedy for this state ot things? * Answer. The remedy I would suggest would be the establishment of some supervising au thority in those States, with power to advise and insist on the impartial administration of .justice, accomnamed by a sufficient force if necessary to induce the people to feel that the authority is sufficient to enforce its advice or instructions. Question. As time runs on, and ordinary justice is denied to a large share of the people, of these States, is there a fair chance of the state of affairs then improving? Antwer. I think not, because enterprising people, knowing that state of affairs to exhist in that country, would be discouraged from going there and entering into business. I do not think the people themselves have either the energy or the disposition to undertake leg itimate enterprises; that is, enterprises result ing in the improvement of the condition ol affairs in the State and bringing wealth to the country. Question. You thiuk there must be a sub stantial basis of jnstice to accomplish that? Antwer. Yes, sir. General Sickles is still more emphatic in his testimony. He says it will be impossible to maintain our garrisons in the South unless ad ditional authority is given to the Army to ar rest and punish offenses against soldiers. General Sheridan’s opinion is forcibly ex pressed in his report to General Grant in De cember, in which he says the trial of a South ern man tor the murder of a negro in Texas would be a farce. General Baird and General Wood, in their testimony before the committee, concur with General Thomas in his statement of the pres ent condition of affairs and the, nature ol the remedy to be applied. Aside ftorn all lutmanitariau considerations, I urge the House to consider that it is the wis est political economy to protect labor. A gov ernment that allows its laborers to go without remedy for the non-payment of wages, and even to be shot with impunity tor demanding them, cannot expect and should not have ma terial prosperity. God never has so dealt with any nation and never will. But a higher consideration than this is that these men so persecuted and destroyed were our friends in the great battle for the life of the nation. These Union men of the South, white and black, are now hunted and destroy ed because they are our friends. The Govern ment by means of this assistance emerged from the contest victorious, but it now refuses, and up to this time has refused, to extend its powerful arm in protection of these humble allies. At the close of our revolutionary war Great Britain songhtout the loyalists of Amer ica who had suffered for adhering to the mother country. A commission was appointed, and after careful hearing the sum of $15,000,000 was distributed among the losers. That sum at that time would be at least equal to $50,000, 000 now. Shall this Government, triumphant, he less liberal than Great Britain defeated? If we do not make up the losses already suffered, in God’s name let us see to it that hereafter every Union man of the South of whatever color shall have the fruits of his labor and not be stripped of them whenever a brutal em ployer may choose. The bill will do something toward so desira ble an object. Let it be passed as speedily as possible. The President's New Meheuie* BECHET MEETINGS IN WASHINGTON. The exciting topio at Washington at at present is the reported attempt to ef lect a compromise between the President and the Republican majority in Congress npon the reconstruction question. The correspondents take widely different views of the aspect of af fairs, as will''be seen by extracts from the special Washington dispatches in Friday’s Now York papers. The Tribune’s correspondent Says: Several leading Republicans, members of Congress and others, among whom were Ray mond, Bingham, Hubbell, Buckland and De lano, held a protracted caucus last night in this city, for the purpose of ascertaining wheth er a compromise might not be effected between • the President and Congress. The conference lasted until midnight, but no conclusion was reached, and another meeting is being held to night, with an additional number of invited guests. There seems to be a little doubt that the President would agree upon a plan for the purpose of acccomodatiug. the views ofa major ity of Congress, provided they would meet him half way, but it ap|iears there is no body that can speak for the majority. Hence the diffi culty m bringing about the proposed arrange ment.” The correspondent of the Herald sends the following: An intimate friend of the President reports that in a conversation held with him Mr. Johu son continues of the opinion that the policy of the preseut Congress will receive the con demnation of the people, and that time will jus tity his course in vetoing the measures that have met with his disapproval. He asserts that many of the Republican mem tiers now _feel indisposed to support the legislation af .fecting the condition of the South, and that if there were one or two members of Congress 'bold enough to take a decided stand in oppo sition to the majority, there would be such a conversion to his views as would modify the character ot legislation, and would be applaud ed by what he terms “the thinking portion of the public." The President affects not to be lieve that the people of the North can be in duced to support any policy which will con tinue to deprive the unreconstructed States of representation. On the other hand, prominent Republican members have been in frequent communication with the President for some time past, and the mysterious intimations dropped by Messrs. Raymond and Banks re cently in a debate on the Reconstruction bill of Mr. Stevens, there is authority for saying, had their origin in consultations held at the White House. Already au exciting rumor prevails among the Democrats here that the President is going over to the Radicals. It is certain that sueh a change is thought probable by some of his late friends, w ho are trying to pre vent its accomplishment by predicting his cer tain political ruin from such a return to the camp ef his allies. The World's correspondent savs: A. dispatch from the North Carolina Legisla ture shows that the new plan of reconstruction proposed by the Southern Governors cannot pass that body. Another effort is, therefore, being made here to see if some plan cannot he drawn up to which the President will give his assent. A meeting was held last night and to-night, by several conservative Republicans who are on good terms with the Executive, to ascertain if by some slight mutual concessions not amounting to any sacrifice of principle, a measure of reconstruction could not be agreed upon that would meet the views of both the Legislative and Executive branches of the Government. The comparison of views ex pressed served to cause the belief that the in terview may lead to practical results hereafter, though no definite steps were taken. One of the Congressmen who participated in this movement intimated to-day that the President would give liis adhesion to the ‘Blaine proposi tion, which is the pending constitutional amendment and universal suffrage, if nothing more satisfactory could be agreed on, but bet ter authority doubts the statement in Into. -the tsoston Advertiser s correspondent in liis dispatch of Friday evening says: The Julinson compromise scheme has been busily caucused today among the President’s old and new lrieuds. Two secret messengers from the President spent the whole day on the floor and in the cloak-room. The military bill with modifications of the Bingham amend ment, was shown to those deemed trustworthy. In the second meeting held last uight the fol lowing participated: Messrs. Hubbell, Delano, Bueklaud and Bingham of Ohio; Laflin, Ketcli um, Dodge and Raymond of New York, and Blow and Blaine. On Mr. Johnson's part were Philadelphia and Clevelahd Convention men again. The members named above for the most part slipped quietly out ot the House last night and went secretly ur the place of meeting. The plan of the President, as represented today in this circle, is the military bill with the Blaine amendment: universal suffrage, to include all rebels, and a pledge to admit, to Congress as soon as the amendmend is adopted. These terms are looked upon with great suspicion as a trick to break up the two-thirds majority, and defeat the pending measures. The secret character of the midnight meeting, and the political character ot the President’s messen gers, and the great activity of the weakest men named above, are the causes of this suspicion. The President is severely denounced for using such means to reach Congress. The strength of the movement will be developed by tomorrow, as the matter became known today. The greatest efforts have been made to keep all ref erence to the matter from the papers. Midnight.—Nearly the same party is in ses sion to night, at the private residence of Mr. Dodge of New York. The change is caused by the desire to keep the meeting secret. The tear of impeachment, and the unexpected repu diation by the South are understood to be the 'reasons for the President’s strange course. New Railroad*. The St. Johnsbury (Vt.) Caledonian of Peb. 15tb, contains an aeconntof a meeting of the stockholders in the Essex county and Montpelier and ijt. Johnsbury railroads which was held at the St. Johnsbury House on the 12th inst., for the purpose of organization. At this meeting the following officers were chosen: For directors of the Essex road, Horace Fair banks and Calvin Morrill of St. Johnsbury, Perley P. Pitkin of Montpelier, Wm. 11. Hatch of New York, and John \V. Hartshorn of Lu nenburg. For the Montpelier and St, Johns bury road the same board was elected with the substitution of C. W. H. Dwinnell of Marsh field for Mr. Hartshorn of Lunenburg. At a future meeting of the directors, Horace Fair banks was chosen president, and Jona. Boss clerk of both corporations. After the organization an impromptu meet ieg of citizens was held, Hon. James I). Bell if Waldron presiding. Judge Bell, on Liking the chair, said that he understood that the two roads were organized, that the present meeting was an informal one, and that the people had come together in so large uumbers as a voluntary expression of their interest in the great enterprise. Bliss N. Davis, Esq., of Danville, was called upon and made a stirring speech, in which he foretold not only the speedy construction of this road, but an ultimate connection with the great Northern Pacific railroad, by which Portland, the best eastern seaport, would be in direct communication with the great Northwest. A great many other speakers eddressed the meeting, all of whom took strong ground in favor of the enterprise as of the utmost impor tance in developing the resources of northern Vermont and expressing a conviction that Portland capitalists would certainly meet them at DalLiu. One speaker declared that it would be for the interest of the people along the line to build this road if they sunk ev ery dollar of the stock, rather than uot have it built at all; but so far from this being the fact however, the route is unus ually feasible, owing to its exemption from deep cuts ami heavy tills, steep grades and long bridges, and it is believed the stock will be apaying investment, for besides a heavy lo cal business, this road being the shortest aud most direct route between tide water and the great western lakes, the through freight would be immense. & The Caledonians understands that the sur T®y the Montpeleir land Nt.

Barclay, Curie & Co., be ing the third constructed for the company by those eminent builders. The dimensions of the Nestorian areas fellows: In length, by surveyors’ measurement, she is 317 feet; her width is 38 feet. She is 25 feet 6 inches deep in the hull to the spar deck, and 32 feet 8 inch es to the promenade deck. Her gross meas urement is 2,240 tons, and her passenger and cargo-carrying space is registered as 1,527 tons. The Nestorian has been constructed on re markably fine lines, under special survey, and is very strongly built. She is divided into seven water-tight compartments by six strong Iron bulkheads reaching from the keel to the spar deck, and all the materials of which she is composed are of the very best quality. The engines are of 400 horse-power nominal, but capable of working to five times that amount. The cylinders are 65 inches in diameter, and the piston has a stroke of 45 inches. Sho is fitted with a patent right-and-left screw steer ing apparatus, worked by a double or single wheel, as circumstances may require, and the steersmen are fully protected from the weath er; and to provide against any casualty which may unexpectedly arise, the rudder is also fit ted to be worked by the ordinary tiller-chains. She is provided with a steam worked capstan for raising and loweriug the anchors, which are suspended from anclior-davita instead of the old fashioned cat-hcads. She is also pro vided with an ample supply of life and other boats. In short, nothing has been omitted Which could suggest itself for securing speed and safety to the ship and freight. ■ine arrangements lor passenger accommoda tion are of the best order. The principal or dining saloon is a magnificent apartment CO feet long by 33 leet wide, aud 7 feet 2 inches high in the ceiling. It is very fully lighted and ventilated, and is a cheerful as well as a sumptuous lounge, capable of accommodating comfortably, eighty persons at dinner. It is handsomely, indeed gorgeously fitted up. The sleeping berths for first-class passengers are eighty in number, and they are situated iu coml'ortably-arrauged state-rooms ou the deck below tbe saloon. These state-rooms are ca pacious, light, well ventilated, and fully sup plied with everything whieli can conduce to comfort. Like the saloon, they are kept at a comfortable temperature by means of steam beating arrangements, and are in all respects luxuriously snug cabins. The space for steerage passengers is situated on two decks, aud is amply sufiicient for COO adults, and this large amount of space is ad mirably lighted and fully supplied with the means of regulated ventilation. She is to be fitted with Wood’s patent hammock-cots for adult steerage passengers, which have already been tried in several of the eompany’s steam ers, and found to afford great advantages as to cleanliness, ventilation, ami mess accommoda tion. To provide, as far as possible, for the expect ed increase of trade, the Montreal Ocean Steamship Company are having built for them another magnificent steamer, similar in every respect, to the Nestorian. She is to he named the Austrian, and is being constructed by Messrs. Barclay, Curie & Co., of Glasgow, and is expected to be placed on the Liverpool and Quebec line in May. The company will then have on their British and North American line 18 Aval o*ri»m.s!i!ps, U?U Of WlllcU Will ply between Liverpool and British North Ameri ca, and three between the same settlements and the Clyde. The Nestorian will leave, on her return trip to England, next Saturday. The steamship Moravian, Capt. Aiton, of this line, which arrived here Friday morning, discharged her large cargo, coaled up, took in a large cargo and sailed for Liverpool last night. This is dispatching business with effi ciency. The Belgian is the steamer of this line due at this port from Liverpool this week. Detention of Jflailw. Editor of the Press:—We don’t propose to “ go off the handle,” or get up any more extra passion in presenting onr grievances against the Government lor allowing such abuse to exist in the delivery of the mail between New York and Portland. We have spent some little time in looking this matter up, and we are satisfied that the trouble exists in Boston, for the head clerks in New York and Portland say they leave all right, ami no matter is allowed to lay over. We are willing to allow that bad weath er has and will interpose; but when it takes seven days or more in fine, pleasant weather to communicate with New York, or for New York to Portland, it is time it is looked after, for if it is to continue, we had better put on the old stage coaches, for they can make better time ■than has been made for the past three months, unless they lay over in Boston two or three <h*y«- Merchant. Fruits and Fancy Groceries.—The oldest fruit establishment in this State—that of Allen —is now re-established at No. 11 Exchange street, just above where it was when the great fire took it away. The establishment is a fine one, and the shelves display the handsomest assortment of fancy groceries that can be found in the city. In fruits it abounds. Allen has got the largest lot of fresh figs that was ev er brought here. Of tobacco he has all kinds; and cigars in great abundance. In confection ery he does not intend to be beaten. He will be constantly supplied with all the choice im ported greeu and dried fruits in their season, and all kinds of domestic fruits. Just look in at his establishment, and see^what a splendid stock he displays. Foreign Exports.—The total value of for eign exports from this port last week, amount ed to $131,010.85. Included in the shipments were 4,947X sugar box shooks, 1,21(5 shooks and heads, 18,734 hoops, 815 bdls hoops, 201 empty casks, 100 tierce shooks, 301,500 feet lumber, 100 M shingles, 3,500 lbs. nails, 229,226 lbs. ashes, 1,373 bush, peas, 2,114 bush, barley, 17,018 lmsh. oats, 120 bbls. flour, 21,269 lbs. butter, 1,800 lbs. bacon, 400 lbs. oil cake, 500 bbls. meal, 355 bbls. potatoes, 32 cases furs, 1 case merchandise, 9 packages sundries. The Highway Robbery.— Mr. Fuss, who was attacked and robbed at Limerick, on Thurs day night, is rapidly recovering. He says the men were so muffled up that he was unable to see their countenances. One of them was tall, the other short. Ho clue to the robbers has been found. The two young meu who were arrested here eu suspicion of having committed the robbery, have been discharged. Their entire innocence was proved in the most satisfactory manner. Presentation.—William Mitchell, Esq., the efficient and favorite conductor on the Port land & Kennebec Railroad, was on Friday ev ening presented by citizens of Waterville with a splendid silver conductor’s punch enclosed in an elegant case, on which his name was en grave 1. Mr. Mitchell is one of the most faith ful and attentive conductors that can be found, and is well deserving of such compliments. A Fine Establishment,—At the store of Messrs. Rollins & Gilkey, corner of Congress and Prehle streets, in addition to the pure drugs and medicines which they constantly have on hand, may be found a choice assort ment of fancy articles, the finest of soaps, ci gars, tobacco, &c., &c. Look at their adver tisement and give them a call. P. Y. M. C. A. Course.—The ninth Lecture is announced for Wednesday evening next, in the Casco Street Church, by the Rev. George T. Day, of Providence, R. I. Mr. Day’s lecture ture will be on the “Bright and Dark Sides of Life, and we judge will be one of the most at tractive of the course. Exchanging Bonus.—By reference to the advertisement of the Eastern Express Com pany, it will be seen that those who wish to have their seven-thirty bonds exchanged at

■Washington, can do so without charge, Sudden Death.—One of the laborers em ployed at the kerosene oil works, went home, after his day’s work, Friday evening, appar ently as well as usual and after attending to his domestic affairs, went into the house, sat down and eat his supper. Some time after eating he was taken with a spell of coughing, to which attacks he was subject, having had quite a number of them before, and in about ten minutes he expired. There being no phy sician near, and the wife being alone at the time, she could get no help, and he died in her arms. The name of the deceased was Thom as McGowan. He was tldrty-five years of ot age, and leaves a wife and two children dependent, as it were, upon char ity. McGowan has worked for the Kerosene Company about four years, and was a very steady, industrious man, much respected in and about the works; so much so that on Sat urday forenoon th« workmen, together with their employers, made up a purse for the wid ow of about one hundred dollars, to relieve her immediate wanks. Coroner Gould was called and went out to his residence, not for from the Reform School, and after hearing the circumstances and facts in the case, deemed an inquest unnecessary. Insurance Agents.—In onr remarks upon (ravelling agents for Insurance companies in Saturday’s issue, we did not intend to include those who are acting as travelling agents for reliable offices, of whom there are a number in this State, and who would scorn to make any misrepresentation for the purpose of obtaining i customer. We know that Mr. M. L. Stevens has the agency of some of the best offices', and that whatever he represents may be depended upon. And there are others in the field like him. - This remark is due to them, lest it should be supposed they were included in the class men tioned in our article of Saturday. Theatre.—Cinderella has proved a decided hit, having been performed during the week to very good houses. Tho scenery is truly mag nificent, the last scene being of tho most gor" geous description, and fully worth the price of admission, alone. The music is very fino and the singing excellent, while the burlesque say ings and local hits inAariably bring down the house. To those who have not det seen it’ we would suggest that they take advantage of the present opportunity, or they will miss a grand treat. The performance commences with a laughable farce. Testimonial to Mr. Garrison.—On our first page will be found a report from the com mittee, who have taken the matter in hand to procure a subscription of $50,000 to be present ed to William Loyd Garrison. A subscription paper for this fund may be found at tho count ing room of the Daily Press, the publisher of which, will take charge of any subscriptions from the friends of Mr. Garrison in this State, and will forward them to the Boston Commit tee, by whom they will be acknowledged in the columns of the Boston Daily Advertiser.

Baxter, James R. Hoyt, George F. Hitchings, George S. Bars tow, Abner Lowell. The trial of Keenan for murder will take, place at that term. But the Court will order an extra number of jurors to be d rawn for the purposes of that trial. Army and Navy Leotubr.—The second lecture of the course given by the Army and Navy Union of this city, will be to-morrow evening, at Mechanics* Hall, by Gen. John C. Caldwell. The Forest City Band will furnish the music for the occasion. We advise every one to purchase a season ticket, as the proceeds go towards a fund for the benefit of the gallant sailors and soldiers who are members of the Union. Arrb8t op thieves.— Thursday eveuiug one of the panes of glass in the window of the store of Messrs. Mathews & Thomas was smashed ond eight boxes of tobacco were sto len. Deputy Marshals Wentworth and Irish took the matter in hand and worked it up so handsomely, that yesterday they arrested the thieves and recovered the eight boxes of to bacco, lacking one plug. Calico Ball.—The Grand Calico Dress Ball under the auspices of the Irish American Re lief Association—the closing of their course of six Assemblies, will come off this evening at Mechanics* Hall. The Assemblies have been well patronized, and pleasant times have been experienced. There will be a large attendance to-night. Tickets can be secured of the man agers o» iKf floor. Reduction in Valuation.—It will be seen by our special report from Augusta, that the Finance Committee have reported in l'avor of a reduction in the valuation of our city, of four millions of dollars. This, if it passes, extends to the next valuation, in 1870. Donation.—The Army and Navy Union of this city have received a generous douatiou of books for their library, from the publishing house of Horace B. Fuller, Boston. We trust other publishers will follow his example.

Singing School.—The last half of Mr. Gard iner’s second term of Singing School will com mence Monday evening. Mr. Martin, Purser of the steamship Nes torian, will accept our thauks for files of Lon don and Liverpool papers. STATE. —We learn from the Eastport Sentinel that the house of Mr. Foster Ward of that place was badly damaged by fire on Friday last. Much sympathy was felt for Mr. Ward who is au honest, hardworking man with a large family dependent upon him for support. A large num ber of mechanics volunteered their services in repairing the building, while others gave liber al amounts to purchase material, and in a short time his house will again be ready lor him. —The Sentinel states that Daniel H. Miars and Lewis Miars of Lubec were arrested for breaking and entering the store of Oliver M. Guptill at Lubec and carrying away money and goods to the amount of about sixty dollars, on the night of the "4th of Dec. last, and brought before Geo. Com stock, Reg., who sentenced them to recognize in the sum of $600, each, for their appearance at the S. J. Court, next to be holden at Machias on the 4th Tuesday of April next, and failing to procure bonds, they were committed to jail —We learn Irom the Gardiner Reporter that Mr. Charles Merrill, a conductor on the ireight train, and belonging in Freeport, had his head shockingly jammed while engaged in shack ling a car at the depot in that city on Monday last. It is thought he will recover. -J.no reporter states that the new United States Military Asylum at Togus, is now in readiness to receive inmates, some twenty ap plicat ons having already been accepted, and the soldiers received. It is only for soldiers or sailors disabled from wounds or disease, and iucapable of otherwise obtaining support. The buildings are of a capacity to receive about JOO permanently, with accommodations for temporary relief to as many more. They are received from any part of New England. —An old lady, eighty years of age furnishes for the Ellsworth American some reminiscenc es of the early history of that town, among which we find the following items: “Seventy years ago there was but one clock in Ellsworth. It was the property of Mr. Jones, and part of his wife's dowry."—“Mr. Fullington carried the mail from Bluehill to Machias in a worsted stocking, and was one week on the route. Part of the distance he was guided by spots ou the trees.”—“Mrs. Beal brought the lirst horse to Ellsworth. It came in a vessel, and there be ing no wharves.it was thrown overboard for it to swim ashore. Mrs. Beal rode through the town on horseback, which created ranch stir.” —“The first meetinghouse was built by the Baptists on the East side of the river. Elder Lord preached in it and formed a church of 2M members. The Cougregationalists built a meetinghouse the same year on the west side of the river.”—“Mr. Nourse was the first set tled minister. He taught school most of the time during the week, and preached Sundays.” —At the Christian Convention lately held in this city, it was recommended that similar Con ventions be held in the different counties in the State, and in accordance with this suggestion a meeting of the pastors and laymen from the various churches of Penobscot county is called to assemble at Bangor on Tuesday the 26th inst. The object of the meeting, as set forth in the call for the State Convention, is “A free interchange of opinions and experience in re gard to the various questions of practical Christian effort,—The work of the Churches, —Homo Evangelization,—The spread of the Gospel among the poor and neglected,—The Sunday School,—The suppression of Intem perance,” and kindred topics. Delegates from other counties will be heartily welcomed. —A live seal is on exhibition in Bangor, as we learn from the Whig. He was taken near Mill Creek, Orrington. He came out of an open place in the river to obtain some llsh left on the ice by the smelt fishers, and became be wildered among the snow drifts left by the great storm, so that he could not find his way back to the water—and was captured without injury, after showing some fight. He is now fed upon tom-cods, taking a couple of dozen or so for a day’s supplies. —The Pioneer speaks of a shingle machine now in operation at Presque Isle by Messrs. N. Perry & Co. It says the shingles seem to ho preferable to those shaved by hand, in that they have a true taper and will therefore fit as closely to a roof as sawed shingles. The shingles are prepared in the same way as for a hand shave They can be turned out of the machine as last as a man can handle them. SPECIAL NOTICES.
