Foreign* THE FENIAN TROUBLES. A London dispatch of the 16th, says that Ire land is entirely quiet. Chief Organiser Steph ens is reported to be there; but the danger seems to be past. Loomis wood, whe:e the closely pursued Fenians took refuge, was scoured by the British troops and the insurrec tionary bauds dispersed. The government, however, will immediately send more ships and troops to Ireland. The county of Kerry is proclaimed in a state of siege. The policeman who wa# shot, was not killed. A large sum is Offered by the government lor the arrest ot the assailant. It ie now said that Col. O Connor is uo other than James Stephens. 1 wenty Am ericans are reported acting with tl.e Fenians. the emi euou’s hpeki'U. The speech recently delivered by the Emper or Napoleon before the Corps Legislatif is giv en in substance, in a despatch from Paris of Feb. 14. The Emperor said that serious events had happened to Europe, almost fulfilling the great Napoleon idea to unite all the great ho mogenous nations hitherto separated, which is the only possible balance of power in Europe. German and Italian events have paved the way to it. Their success cannot disturb France. “I stood aloof,” he said, “and helped the peace which Prussia and Italy made without dis membering Austria. France was just and n«u tral. In another part of the globe "re nav ^ been obliged to employ force to redress leg mate grievances, and we have endeavor raise an ancient empire.

Europe will sustain his temporal power against demagog ues. Our relations with England are intimate ami both the powers agree on all the great question's. The perpetuation of Austria is ne cessary to the balance of power. The Emper or ,-ays he is certain that the peace of the world is not to he disturbed.

I trust in my people, my right and my conscience.” various items. Despatches of February 15 and lUfroin Paris state that the army organization plan of Na poleon is rapidly breeding distrust. The French Blue Book says the government of France sincerely applauds the activity of the United States in repairing the evil of civil war. There is now no subject of discussion be tween France and America, but everything tends to assimilation of their policies.. At the elections in Prussia the liberals were triumphant in ten districts, and have returned Count Bisaiark as their representative. A London despatch ot Feb. lti says, “a ter rible earthquake has occurred in the island of Cephulonia. Every town on the island is in ruins. Tiie loss of life and property is very great. The King of Greece has gone there.” THE BRITISH MINISTRY. Letters from Paris say the opinion prevails in political circles there that the British Cab inet is in extremis: either it must bring in a Reform bill and Jose all its old supporters, or decline to do so and go into the Opposition lobby. THE GOVERNORSHIP OP CANADA. It is said to be definte'ty arranged that Lord Naas Chief "cvretary for Ireland and a mem of tiie Cabinet, is to succeed Lord Monck as Governor-General of Canada, and that Lord Elcho is to take the Secretaryship thus left vacant. These arrangements would doubt less strengthen and in the latter case would popularize the government. SPAIN.

The discussion is now cloMed and Commissioners of investigation are to he appointed. This has grown out of an order introduced by Mr. Lord, of Standisb, who was formerly an iumate. The frieuds and opponents of investigation make the turning point of the argument, ufion the reliability to be given to the testimony of a man once insane, and especially upon matters con cerning which he received impressions in his deranged state. Mr. Caldwell, ot Hancock, in the course of his discussion last Friday, in the Benate, among other things, said: There is m the other branch a gentleman of wealth, intelligence and respectability, whose misfortune it is to have been once in that insti tution. He was sent on there while laboring under tile delusion that lie Was going to lose liis property. He wanted to see nobody. He confined himself to his room, hruodiug over his imaginary poverty. On this matter only was his mind unsound. He bought and sold prop erty. He was as capable of managing his af fairs then as now. He had a mania, and that was it. When describing it he brought tears to my eyes. He described the feelings in his own mind all through those Jong years of gloom. One day it left him almost as mysteri ously as it came. He saw the clear sunlight. Now that gentleman can sit down in his room and will tell you all the phenomena, all the history, the experience of those long years, and I venture to say you will believe every word of it. lie told his story with such simplicity and adaptation in all its parts, that I could nut see a trace of any want of intellect. He looks hack upon himself insane. He describes to you his sensations. He does tell you what he saw that, has no reference to himself. That gentleman represents a constituency. His neighbors ought to understand his condition. They consider him wise enough to represeut them. Ii is not for medical men to sneeze at his testimony merely because lie has been an inmate of the stone walls over there. ___ Quill. The Mreret itlcetang. Mil. BLAINE NOT A PARTY, A Washington Dispatch in the Boston Ad vertiser of yesterday says: The President, in consultation with high of ficials on Friday, stated positively that he ut terly repudiated the statement that he had of fered terms of compromise. and said he held firmly to his policy. Justice to some of the Kepublicans drawn into the late, meetings de mands the explanation that they were distinct ly and repeatedly assured that the President authorized the persons who assumed to act on ins part to say that Mr. Johnson was w-lling to agree on the amendment to the Constitution, and > unrage in some form, and some of the Kepubi;ans who went to the meet ing di.l so in good f„ith Not withstanding the President’s positive de nial, it i - certain thet he has been a party to creating a strong impression that he was ready to abandon his opposition to Congress. The impression is strengthening that the whole thing on the Johnson side was a trick. The select committee under Mr. Wentworth’s res olution will begin to take testimony to-morrow. The name of Mr. Blaine of Maine has been mixed up, either in transcribing the lists or in telegraphing, with Mr. Blow of Missouri as at tending their meetings. It is well known that Mr. Blaine w as not present at any, and had nothing to do with them. i he Brooklyn Navt Yard Frauds.—The < ott investigating committee seem to have nneart ml a very dark series of transactions at haiJZ Vanl Th“ Tribune per eays.

The London Times of February 1 contains a report of John Bright’s speech to his neighbors of Rochdale, in response to a flattering ad dress. It is mainly a review of his political life during the last twenty-five years. Mr. Bright said he was deeply moved by this token of esteem from those who knew’ him best, and that this was the best answer that could he made to the rancorous attacks w hich his polit ical opponents had so incessantly made upon him. He lelta just pride in his consistent de votion to liberal principles dining all this time. The following reference to Ireland is interest ing: There is a party in England which «| • h justice to Ireland as if it were n'er^. alu( phrase for the popular ear ill thatcouut y. as if it had no roll meaning Now, 1 hoWthat to sustain in a country a oreign anf hoewe Church, and to confiscate alU e eec ksusut u revenues of that country to that Church^mm that Church inclosing »j people—I say that very smal nnnority ieve states manship or misstotesmanship has never yet min ed in anv Other country [cheers]; and i sav cUier. thit to maintain laws which are adverse to tiie national division of the land where the whole soil lias lieen confiscated, as it lias been within the last J00 years, is to per petuate the exclusion of the people from the possession of their ow n soil, and to create and make perpetual pauperism and discontent. If that were done in Inland, in Hungary, in Veuetia—it it had been done there uuder the influence of a conquering government, I be lieve there is not a single man or woman in England who would not been ready to condemn such a state of things. [Cheers.] He next relers briefly to his speeches against the existence of the laws favoring the preserva tion of game; for the abolition of capital pun ishment; for the restriction of the immense laud monopoly; against intervention in behalf of the Turks; in favor of a permanent peace with France, and “of the most cordial friend ship with the English nation beyond the At lantic.” He then passes over to his efforts in the reform question, of whic'li he speaks as fol lows: There is one thiug, it is true, that I greatly regret in this retrospect, and that is the small success that bus attended efforts that I have been able to make with regard to many of these subjects. And now, when 1 ask a very reasonable thing, that the millions of my country men may he freelv heard in that Cham ber which for so many hundreds of years has called itself the Commons of England, when I :isk that they shall be heard, when I have said thatjit would be a good thing for the United Kingdom, and good for freedom every where, that they should now seize the scepter which lor the last 200 years has beou wielded by a class—when I say this I am subjected not only to opposition—for that I could under stand—but to an opposition conducted with a falsehood and a malice which know no scruple, and which, if I were not supportedby the hon est syuihatliies of millions of my countrymen, might overwhelm me. What is the end pro posed by these changes? It is not to destroy our institutions, it is not to change a dynasty, it is not to seize the property of the rich, it is not to give to ignorance and to vice tbe dis position of great national affairs, hut it is to give power to Parliment from that source from which its only power can be receievd so that Parliment may have the power to remedy abuses which are acknowledged to exliist oil every hand in the department* and the legis lation of the State. Parliament has not power now to save the public money ; to make the lawr something leiL oi justice aud benevolence throughout the w hole land; and also that it should he able to raise the people to the highest level of comfort and instruction, of morality aud freedom. His views on Reform are now the same as before, and he believes it to be necessary for the House of Commons, necessary for every in stitution of the country, and as absolutely nec essary for the contentment of the people. Af ter the conclusion of the speech, which lasted more than an hour, the following resolution was adopted: ^ That this meeting, regaiding Parliamentary Reform as the political question of the day, thoroughly approves Mr. Bright’s course in reference to it, and assures him of its hearty sympathy, and pledges itself to give him and his colleague its earnest support until a good, honest and substantial Reform bill becomes the law of the land. The hale William Porter Chase* By letters received from Cuba yesterday we learn that Mr. Chase was taken sick at Carde nas on the 27th of January, as was then sup posed to be from the effects of vaccinate*** nut the disease proved to be small-pox. From intelligent ^ceived here on the 11th in *• ms friends were encouraged to believe him to be out of danger; but he expired on the night of the 5th, alter an illness of eleven days. Information ol his death was received here by the way of Baltimore on the 15th. The progress of his disease w«s rapid and severe; but his friends here have the assurance that all which the kind friends by whom he was surrounded could do was done to allej viate his sufferings. Perhaps we can iti no way give a clearer im pression ot the esteem in which he was held hv those with whom nrrrraa Tia.vnieWs nuu.M, following, which we cut from the Matanzas Aurora of the 8th. The first extract appears as a communication. The translation is as literal as possible: Matanzas, 7th February, 1867. Yesterday, at Havana, fell a victim to the disease which lias afflicted us and which we presume he took here, Mr. Will. Porter Chase. The telegraph has given us the news so sad to his numerous friends, and has called out our most sad and profound sympathies. An ener getic and active as Mr. Chaso was, his Joss is sensibly felt (lit. “extremely sensi ble”) to the commercial community of Matan zas, witli whom he has had large relations. His friends in Matanzas desire to manifest to the tamily of Mr. Chase the painful senti ments with which they are filled at this de plorable loss.” The following appears as editorial: Deceased.—Observing that the colors on the American vessels in this port were put at half-mast, we took occasion to inquire into the cause, and were told it was for the death ofMr. Win. Porter Chase, a distinguished merchant of Portland, a person highly appreciated for his integrity and honored by all who had com mercial relations with him in this city. We did not have the honor to be personally ac quainted with Mr. Chase, but we ueve-theless sympathize in the sorrow for his loss. The death of the good is always deplorable. The funeral of Mr. Chase occurred at Hava na on the 7th, and was attended by a large com pany of resident and visiting Americans as well as by the leading native merchruts of the Island. We understand that it is the purpose of bis family to have his remains brought to this country for interment as soon as it can be safe ly done, which will be in about a year from this time. .State Wool. Gbowebs' Association.—The undersigned, with the approbation of the Exe cutive Committee of the North Kennebec Wool Growers’ Association, and in their behalf res pectfully suggest to the wool growers of Maine the propriety of a State organization for the promotion ot their interests. It is proposed that some of thq County Associations assume the duties necessary to carry out this plan The N. K. Association is to hold its annuai meeting at Waterville in April, and its annual Shearing Festival early iu June. Il'this pro posal seems to meet the views of those interest ed, in various parts of the State, this Associa tion will take the responsibility of calling a meeting tor the purpose stated on one of the above occasions. Other County Associations and all wool growers who leel interested in this proposition, arc . requested to communicate witli the undersigned as soon as convenient If any other place will he judged preferable! this Association will co-operate with any other that will assume the work.

New Engine House.— The members of steam lire engine Casco No. 5 had their ma chine out yesterday afternoon for trial of her working power, previously to placing her in the new house which has been erected for tlie company, and other purposes, on the corner of Congress and Market streets. The engine proved to be iu excellent order and her capa city for throwing water was well tested. She was subsequently removed to her new quar ters. The new building, when completed, will be found very commodious and convenient, and it is claimed that it is the best arranged for the purpose,/>f any in New England. On the low er floor are rooms for the steamer, hook and ladder truck, the City Liquor Agency, and a fine store on the corner of the streets. In the second story are two flue offices, a small hall or the accommodation of the hook and ladder men, a sleeping apartment for the driver of the steamer, and a handsome and convenient dwel ling for the engineer, and a battery room for the fire alarm telegraphs. Under the building is a capacious reservoir. The rents from the store, offices and dwelling will pay a fair inter est on the cost of the building. The question of spring travel to California threatens to become a very serious considera tion in view of the yellow fever on the Isth mus and the latest statement that “Panama is full of pestilence aud filth.” Unless the scourge abates the fluctuating population of that region will give neither the doctor nor the census taker much trouble. Meantime, the more cau- j tious or timid of the travelling public, who .scent danger even in being whirled across the Isthmus, under the idea that pestilence can keep up with, if not outstrip, the iron horse, will probably seek the Pacific by the Nicara gua route, whereon a favourable degree of healthfnlness is declared now to prevail. Shut off.—1The Western Union Telegraph Company have shut off supplying intelligence to the Merchants Exchange, notwithstanding, they are paid for it, and have had an olllce gratia in the rooms of the Exchango. The Interna tional line now furnish the Exchange with news, free from charge. Our Portland mer chants will, undoubtedly, remember this, and it is very doubtful if the Western Union Com pany gain anything by this operation. Nitrous Oxide Gas.-Dts. Kimball and Prince are meeting with great success in ad ministering this safe and pleasant anesthetic in the extraction of teeth. Those who wish to have their teeth extracted without pain, and avoid the unpleasant effects of ether and chlo roform will do well to give them a call. They will administer this gas to those who desire it on Tuesdays and Fridays of each week. If auy one desires to test the quality of soap, let him come into our ofllce, dip his hands in printer’s ink, ruh it in, and theu witness how the sticky stain will melt off into the wash bowl, under the solvent action of the Steam Refined Soap. This new manufacture is wonderful. d&wlt Sunday Morning Advertiser.—Attention >s invited to the advertisement of the Sunday Morning Advertiser.

Editor:—Igee in yourpaper tliismorn mg a communication from your Boston corres pondent in regard to the operation of the Maine liquor law in our large towns and cities, pronouncing it a humbug and a failure. That 1 know to be true, so far as suppressing rum drinking and tippling shops is concerned.— Even more stringent laws in that direction would prove a failure. What, then, are we to do ? What is the best course to pursue in the Temperance cause? To my mind the case is very plain; the course to pursue is very clear; and that is to adopt the Washingtonian plan of operations, abolish all of our preseut laws up on this subject, and substitute therefor a law Something like this: if anybody sells liquors to mose wuo make bad use of them and get drunk, knowing or believing the individual to whom he sells to be in the habit of drinking too much, impose a fine upon the rumstdler, seize and confiscate his liquors, and imprison him in the county jail. The penalty should be of such severity that he would fear the law, and it should prove a terror to evil doers. That is not all. We have something to do with the rum drinker, or the man who gets drunk. Instead of a fine of three dollars aud costs, as now, make it severe on him, so that lie will fear to get drunk aud disturb the peace of the community. No man has a moral right to got drunk, and no man lias a moral right to sell liquors to a man that he knows is in the liabit of getting drunk. All good men will agree with me in this, and good men of all po litical parties would sustain such a law and act harmoniously; and then, with a powerful party organized upon the Washingtonian prin ciple, much good might be accomplished. We must remember that we have something to do in this matter of saving men from the drunk ard's grave. We have personal responsibili ties in this matter, and the best course and the best means should he sought out and pursued. A Washingtonian. February 1G. Notice.—Whereas, evil disposed young men have seen fit to assemble around the door of the Vestry ol the Chestnut Street Church upon Sabbath evenings, and till up tbo entry of the same so that persons seeking to go in or out must submit to hearing their profane language and evil conversation or go away: And where as, threats were made of personal violence to the sexton in the discharge of the duties of his place, this is to warn all such persons, whether old or young, that if they repeat this practice again, of disturbance of religious worship, they will be dealt with according to law in such cas es made and provided. Two of the young men are already known, and if anything further should be repeated by them, they must pay the penalty of the crime they have committed. Hydropathy.—For the past few nights a great many persons have been treated very successfully for many complaints, the most common of which has been that of night-walk ing. This water-cure establishment is situated in the middle of Fore street, at.the loot of Ex change street. The bathing place is quite large and full of water, accommodating half a dozen at a lime, and is free to all, whether they are willing to avail themselves of its benefits or uot. A number of our citizens have already taken the plunge bath. The results are great physical activity, both of the vocal and muscu lar organs. P. p.

Noyes, wife of Ward Noyes, has terminated in a verdict of “Death from natural causes.” The chemical analysis of the stom ach of tbe deceased, by Dr. A. A. Hayes of Boston, developed not the slightest traces of poison; and the examination of the body by a council of experts, shows that congestive fever was the cause of death, although the end was unexpected at that time. The atteiul ding physician testified that for three days before death occurred he had expected such a termination of the disease; though its abrupt ness when it did occur gave rise to the feeling in some quarters which led to the examina tion. It is believed that the whole matter is now set at rest. •*. Death or Alexander Dallas Bache.—It | was announced in our paper, a day or two since, that the venerable Dr. Bache was lying at the point oi death, in Newport, R. I., where he had been for many months confined with a lingering illness. We learn from the Boston papers of yesterday that his death took place on Sunday morning about nine o’clock. Dr Bache was President of the National Academy of Sciences, and Superintendent of the United Stales Coast Survey. His name has been as sociated with the Coast Survey for many years, and his contributions to science have given him an honorable distinction, both in this country and in Europe. The pompous epitaph of a close-fisted citi zen closed with the following passage of Scrip ture: ‘He that givetli to the poor lendeth to fhe Lord.” “That may be,” soliloquised Sam bo, ‘ but when datman died de Lord didn’t owe him a red cent.” SPECIAL.
