Oiu the National Capital# espondence of the PRESS.] W-vsriNnrys, FjU. 18,18>r. AN’s SUBSTITUTE IN THE HOUSE. ruing’s Chronicle has a faint appro bill adopted yesterday, in the early cho Sabbath morn. Its leader is en u„_ 'ractioal Reconstruction,” and contains this sentence‘‘This fresh history of legisla tion is only another evidence of the folly of at tempting to restore the Union by any but thor ough remedies, and we shall be rejoiced ■ . notwithstanding the bitter persistency of to opposition in the Senate, the recent p. quiesce in what must now more than"portion pear to them inevitable.” The cl,,s!"ct That contains the ‘nub” of the *®‘j**jSered a fa it gives leave to “ac quiesce al objection to many. current of ex There was man dost a * ^ ^ Bher. b when the House assembled this morn r Members gathered in knots about Mr Stevens, SI.ellabarger, Blaine, Bingham, and others who had pronounced for or against the Senate’s amendment. When asked what course he should pursue, the Pennsylvanian distinctly declared his intention to move anon concurrence aud the appointment of a confer ence committee. The majority of Republicans were against the bill, if a judgment could be madu up by the opinions expressed in conver sation. it did not follow, however, that a ma jority would vote againstconcurrence, because there was a feeling of doubt about getting any thing this Congress. The Blaine amendment, whether regarded as a plan of reconstruction or simply as a means to relieve tne Military scheme from some of its objections, is alike unfortunate.— Its introdnciion will in all probability kill the bill, as there are enough Republicans who re gard it as objectionable in its present shape, to prevent its passage over the veto. Had not this plausible scheme been ottered, presenting peculiar fascination to the men who dare not meet the real issue, which is the destruction of the rebel State organizations, the Military Bill would have been thrown aside and the Louisi ana hill amended so as to be made general.— This would have been acceptable to nearly all Radicals in the House. The objections made to the present bill are not only those which rested against the milita ry bill pure and simple, but are increased be cause tho methods by which the reorganization proposed'is to lie effected, can only work through the present rebel machinery, since it is not likely that Andrew Johnson will allow his subordinates to do otherwise. In the Senate some of the best men are at heart hoping for a non-concurrence, in order to effect the substitution of the Louisiana bill. Tho caucus which was held by the Bcpubli can Senators on Saturday morning and after noon, was very animated, tho discussion at times becoming acrid and almost bitter. I un derstand that your Senators were divided, Mr. Fessenden taking ground in favor of the Blaine amendment, (on which the present one is based) and Mr. Morrill against, because in effect it recognized the right of the rebel gov ernment to organize loyal ones,—the logic be ing that the present organizations being un lawful, because based on Executive usurpa tion, therefore we will allow them to “acqui esce" in certain conditions and be empowered to control the whole work of reorganization. It is a pretense at accomplishing reformation without regeneration; any callow divine will tell you that is a spiritual impossibility. Hen derson and Browu of Missouri, Fowler of Ten nessee, Sumner and Wilson, Edmunds, Yates, Wade, Frelinghuysen, Pomeroy and Boss, Howard and Chandler all opposed the propos ed amendment. Shermau and Fessenden, Conness, Williams, Stewart, Cattel, Fogg, Cra gin, Morgan and Harris, with others, favored it. Mr. Sumner was almost insulted by Conness of California, who has several times taken oc casion to oppose the Massachusetts Senator in a manner which indicated personal resent ment of some kind. 1 am sorry to say that there is too much feeling of this character.— Much of the delay made in the House is due to a rapidly developing spirit of rivalry agaiusl I and jealousy of Mr. Stevens—a feeling very •tronglv developed in the hearts of several members of the Ohio delegation. They are all like Human; their honors are as gall and worm wood while Mordecai the Jewsits in the King’s gate and the passers-by do him reverend;. A Committee of seven of whom Shermau was chairman were appointed to prepare a plan on which all could agree. The one adopted was their renort. The caucus vote stood 14 to 16,—Senator Anthony, who was chairman, giv ing the decisive vote. Senator Sumner was much dissatisfied, regarding it as a virtual sur render to the President of the light made against tho rebel organizations. The telegraph will give you a statement of to-days’ proceedings. “Yeast" is the most ap propriate word to express tlio uncertainty which exists. I cannot better illustrate the danger felt as likely to follow the success of the measure than by relating a little incident which occurred when the House took its recess till this evening. A fine soldierly-looking man was pointed opt to me as an ex-rebel colonel.— In passing down the stairway, I was close be hind him and a companion and could not avoid hearing Lhu conversation. It related to the pending bill. The Colonel said, as if replying to a question— “Yes, Unit’s all we want. Give us that ami then good by to the Jack Hamilton party.” “I hope the Democrats will vote for it. What Will they do?”—said the Colonel's companion. “Oh! they know what they’re about. They understand it ail”—was the confident reply. I do not believe however that they will vote for the bill, but will on the contrary so filibuster as to defeat it. Here I leave it to-night. THE BOUNTY BILL. Your representatives voted against this measure, not because they were opposed to the proposed equalization, but because under the provision which takes local bounties into ac count,the soldiers oi Maine will not l® benefited as much as by the present law—the one passed last winter. That gave bounty of 8100 for three years service to the early volunteers, without regard at all to the bounties paid through local influences. ONE OF BROWNINGS APPOINTMENTS. T. J. Kenney was appointed Chief Justice of the U. S. Court for the Territory of Utah in the early part of Buchanan’s administrations. Soon after his arrival there he went in with Brigham. There was a schismatic faction of Mormons known as Monisites, who were op posed to the Prophet. Kenney turned over his court to Brigham in some way for the per secution of these people and under a pretended process their leaders were murdered by a Mormon sheriff’s posse.— For this Kenny was removed. Then Brigham had him sent to the 29th Con gress as a Territorial Delegate. Since then he has resided in Nebraska. About a year ago he came here. At the pro-rebel Grover’s-Theatre meeting, last 22d of February, Kenney spoke for Andy. Since then ho has been an active “Bread and Butter” man. Secretary Browning has just appointed this sweet specimen a commissioner to proceed west and investigate the Fort Phil Kearney Indian Massacre. THAT SPECIAL AGENCY. 1 s*?e that Col. Mann has been appointed a Special Agent of the Treasury Bepartmeut. Tliere are some facts connected with this trans action which I shall lurnish in my next. THE CONCILIATION RUMORS. These all resolve themselves into a confes sion by a couple of “bummers” of the White nousc, who thought they could find a common basis of agreement between Congress and the President. These two men—persons without political repute, other than the notoriety gained in doing the dirty work of “My Policy,"—called a caucus which was atten led first and last by about twenty-five members of the House. One ol these is a coppery Bohemian named Wor den, who is connected with the New York Times. He is also telegraph reporter lor the Chicago Times, Baltimore Sun and other Bim 'ihem s^aH<'.W“ 0,6 i,1Btr"inent through whom Sheridan’s garbled dispatch was pu forth.

Of °ourse, it is an easy matter for Mr. Johnson to repudiate such agents, as lie did to his Cabinet on Friday. “On what strong meat doth this our Cwsar feed.” Spectator.

Those who voted nay were: Messrs. Lynch, Perham and Pike of Maine; Baxter of Vermont; El lot, Banks and Bout well of Massachusetts; Warner, Brandagec and Hubbard of Connecticut. The names of Marston of Now Hampshire, Morrill of Vermont, Jeuckes and Dixon of Rhode Island do not appear in the list of yeas and nays. Bo large a majority against the bill seems to have caused surprise in all quarters. The Boston Advertiser s dispatch says that a Senator had expressed the opinion that if the House asked for a conference, it could obtain a bettor bill, and members voted against occur euces on this account. Eight democrats with held their votes to see if the bill could pass, and in case it could, would have given such negative support; but as it began to appear that the bill would fail, at the close of the vote they rose and recorded theirs. No explanation is given of their conduct. The House next voted to nou-concur, aud asked for a commit tee of conference. The debate in the Senate upon motion to grant the request of the House was very animated. It soon became apparent that the Benate would insist, and send the bill back to the House; and as the Benate could not, under the rules, amend, the hope was ex pressed by many senators that the House would either recede from its objections or propose amendments that could lie carried in both branches. The Beuate engaged in the closest debate for nearly live hours. The speeches of Messrs. Wade, Sherman and Lane attracted general attention, and as the debate went on the feeling against the conference increased. When the vote was taken the desire for a con ference had lost all strength, and when the House assembled iu the evening, the refusal of the Senate to confer was on the Siieaker’s table. Mr.Stevens desiring to prevent any action on the Senate bill, moved at once to go into Committee of the W hole ou the army hill. The floor was at once given to Mr. Le Blond of Ohio who shared his hour with his Copperhead friends. At the conclusion of the hour both Mr. Stevens and Mr. Blaine sprang for the floor, but the Chairman (Mr. Raymond) rec ognised Mr. Blaine, who moved that the com mittee rise with the view to proceed to the business on the Speaker’s table. This was car ried by 84 to 47. The committee rose and Mr. Blaine moved to proceed to business on the Speakers table, and the Senate bill came up at once, and Mr. Blaine moved to recede from the former vote of the House, but yielded to Mr. Wilson of Io wa, who moved to concur with the Senate, and to amend by adding at the end of the 5th sec tion the following: Provided, That no person excluded from the' privilege of holding office by said proposed amendment to the Constitution of the United States shall be eligible to election as a mem ber of a Convention to frame a constitution lor any rebel State, nor shall any such person vote at any election for members of such Conven tion. Mr. Blaine then demanded the previous question, both on Mr. Wilson’s amendment | and the motion to concur with the Senate, ' whereupon the Democrats began to flllibuster with all sorts of dilatory motions, which were kept up till eleven o’clock, when the motion to adjourn was agreed to. Vnss ur I,ales! Foreign File*. The French Ministry.—There are rumors of further changes in the Ministry. Lavallette is to resign and be succeeded by OUivier. It is also believed that the Moniteur will shortly publish a manifesto restoring the original let ter of the Emperor to M. Roulier to its pris tine importance. The latest rumor on the 2d was that several members beside M. Lavallette would “go to the wall” The Exhibition.—The exhibitors at the building in the Champ de Mars are beginning to arrive in Paris, and are flocking to the offices to claim the space allotted to them; the distribution of surface was, however, not ter minated on the 1st of February. An opinion was therefore prevalent that the date of open ing, fixed fur the 1st of April, would have to be postponed; but the contrary affirmation is firmly made by the lm)ierial Commission. ! The Hm crook's Reforms,—A Cabinet Council was held on the 31st, at which the Press laws were considered, aud at tho Minis try of Justice there was a meeting of Jthe Crown Lawyers. Although much doubt and uncertainty is manifested, it is not probable that the Emperor will to any extent modify his liberal programme. Thb Mouth German Parliament—The “Provincial Correspondence” of the 31st of January confirms the intelligence that the North German I’arliament.would^beopened on the 24tli of February. It also announces that the preliminary deliberations on the draught of the Constitution for North Germa ny arc progressing most satisfactorilly, the essential basis having been already agreed to, and regard having been shown in many res pects to the particular wishes of the separate States. Tiie Conference was drawing to a close. The war flag, commercial flag, and pilot flag of the North German Confederation have uow been established. Tho war flag consists of the Prussian and Hanseatic col ors, with the Prussian eagle in tho center. What is said op James .Stephens in Ire land.—The Dublin correspondent ol the New York Tribune writes: The news that Mr. Stephens was in Ameri ca up to the 1st of January has been circulat ing through all the Irish papers, copied from the Tribune, and great is the indignation against the “central organizer** which it has ex cited. His character is rotting rapidly and ut terly here, even among the men who swore by him up to a dozen days ago. His non-appear ance on Irish soil at the close of the old year some of those persons affected, in conversation to excuse, but latterly they do not care to con ceal their disappointment and their rage; and they curse him bitterly, sometimes for dishon esty, sometimes for incapacity and cowardice. Such being the feelingsol'men who are yet out of prison, it is easy to guess how they feel whose reliance on his promises lias cast them into the hands of the government. And if those men feel cut to the heart, deceived, betrayed, ruin ed, what, think you, is said by their families and friends—by the fathers and mothers to whom they were a support, by the wives and children who depended oh them for bread?— Had any flashes of credit or glory been cast on the movement, were there any deeds »)f chival rous daring performed, by its leaders, or any acts of truly patriotic wisdom, there would be some consolation for all this suffering, and much would be borne uncomplainingly. But Mr. Stephens and his favorites managed to give the whole thing an ugly complexion and a bail odor from the beginning, aim have made it hideous in the end. We have not yet heard the last of the unhappy consequences of his proceedings. The police continue to worm their way iuto the fragments of the organiza tion, and occasional arrests are re]>orted. To read of them is now more than ever painful. It seems like looking at men being knocked down after the battle is over. Rev* II. D. JHmto. Pittsburg, Pa., Feb. 16,1867. To the Editor of the Press: Dear Sir, A report lias been gojng the rounds of the papers to the effect that Rev. H. D. Moore has resigned his charge of Plymouth Church, Pittsburg, which report seems to have originated with your paper. Will you please contradict the report? Mr. Moore has been laid aside from his labors for a few weeks by overworking, but expects to resume them again next Sabbatli. His unbounded suc cess here and his great influence over the young men, especially ol our cities, are ties which caunot be easily severed. He is beloved by all; not only his own church, but of all the churches and ministers of other denomina tions. The Lord haH a great work for him here. This request is by authority of the church. Will yon make the correction and oblige. Yonrs truly, Plymouth Church. {Our correspondent is in error in supposing that the report referred to originated with the Press. We found such a rumor in circulation and gave it as a rumur merely, without vouch i p g for its correctness.—Ed.] ■tenlb ml a Keitlmitsarr Hera.

Dedication of Odd Fello«*V Hall. The new hall of the Fraternity of Odd Fel lows in Jose’s freestone block on Exchange street, on the site of the former one, which was destroyed in the great conflagration, was dedicated last evening with appropriate cere monies. The building is one of the finest in the city, and the hall has been fitted up splen didly. As in tho former building, the Odd Fellows occupy all the third story, and it has been divided into six apartments, an ante room, reception room, regalia and record room and others which will be used as the wants of the Order may require. The reception room, which adjoins the Lodge room, is an elegant apartment, 18 by 25 feet, handsomely furnish ed with black walnut furniture. The Lodge Room is a model of beauty, and reflects great credit upon the genuine good taste of the com mittee of the lodges, Messrs. AV, C. Beckett, E. P. Banks, and Stephen Emerson, ttndif whose superintendence the furnishing and or namenting of the whole has been done. The room is 32 by 40 feet. The walls and ceiling arc frescoed by Schumacher in tasteful and neat designs, conspicuous in which will be observed the emblematical figures of the vir tues which are the guiding principles of the Order, surrounded by proper inscriptions. On the right and left of the N. G. are the in scriptions, “Faith works by Love,” and “Hope is sure and steadfast.” On either side of the V. G.: “Charity never faileth,” and “In God wo Trust.” The sofas are of black walnut, in green rep,'the chairs of the officers are of the same material, elaborately carved, but in dif ferent colors; that of the N. G. together with the elegant canapy being of scarlet, the chair and canopy of the V. G. in blue, those of the P. G. in crimson, and of the Warden in black.— The floors of the Lodge and reception rooms are covered with nice Brussels carpets, and the chandeliers are of bronze in new and at tractive designs. The furniture and upholstery are from the establishments of Evans & Bay ley aud Walter Corey, and the carpets from Marrett, Poor & Co. The hall and all the ante-rooms were crowd ed, last evening, quite a large proportion of the audience being ladies. There were many representatives of the order from abroad. The dedication services were performed by Grand Master N. G. Cummings, assisted by Grand Chaplain Cole, Grand Marshal Stanley and Grand Heralds E. P. Burnham, of Saco, and W. C. Beckett, J. E. Haseltine and C. K. Ladd, of Portland. After opening of the meeting by the Grand Master, prayer was offered by the Grand Chaplain. An original ode, written for the occasion by E. f. Newell, of Portsmouth, N. H., was sung to the tune of Greenville. Mr. Stephen Emerson, Chairman of the Committee, then, with some appropriate re marks, presented the Hall to the Grand Mas ter, who, in behalf of the Order accepted the same aud ordered it to bo dedicated according to form. Alter invocation by the Grand Chaplain the Grand Muster read verses from the t22rl Psalm—“I was glad when they said unto me, &c.,” the alternate verses being chanted by the members and ladies. Then followed the dedi catory address from the Grand Master, and the proclamation of the dedication by the Grand Marshal, followed by the ceremonies of burn ing incense on the altar and distributing grain, (lowers ami water by the Grand Heralds. After prayer by the Grand Chaplain and a brief address from the Grand Master, the ser vices of dedication were closed with a blessing from the Chaplain. The Grand Master then vacated the chair, and it was assumed by Mr. Nash, N. G. of Maine Lodge. Brief but pertinent addresses were made by P. G. M. Burnham, of Saco; P. G. M. Parker, representative from New Hanip I shire; P. G. M. Clark, of Bath; P. G. M. Deer ing, of Portland, and P. G. M. Kingsbury, o( Portland. After singing the closing ode, the meeting broke up. After the dedication services were over a very large number of the members of the Order, with their ladies'repaired to the Preble House where they sat down to a most sumptuous supper prepared by the landlord, Past Grand Master S. P. Krogman. Past Grand Master Judge Kingsbury presided. After the good things on tlio table bad been discussed* to the satisfaction of every one, the President made a few felicitous remarks aud was followed, in short speeches by C. P. Kimball, Esq., Bufus Stanley, Grand Master Cummings, Mr. Par ker, of New Hampshire, E. P. Burnham, of Saco, W. C. Beckett, Mr. Clark, of Bath, Grand Master S. B. Krogman aud H. C. Barnes, Esq. Wit and hilarity abounded, not withstanding it was a strictly temperate affair —thus showing that there is no need of the intoxicating cup on such occasions tc bring out the wit of a man—{provided it is in him.) At half past eleven o’clock, with the song of “Sweet Home ” the party dispersed. The whole affair of dedication and supper was carried out in the most happy manner and it reflects credit upon those who had the mat ter in charge. On a Voyage. Mb. Editor:—It may be of interest to some of the “oldest inhabitants" of our beautiful city to know that one of its .former noble, re spected, venerable citiaens, Joseph Howard, Esq., is now on a pleasant trip to San Francis co. He says he shall “come home in May.” Unaccompanied with any special friend, and at the age of 83 years, this is but continued evi dence of his indomitable energy and faithful trust in Him who has carried him through the green pastures of a consistent life, and grant ed the pleasures and blessings of a ripe, green old age. Long may he continue to cheer us with his unalloyed presence and freshness, while we can all heartily join in wishing him a safe re turn to his many warm IriendB. H. P. New York, Feb. 19,1807.

Day, of Providence, R. I. The subject of the lecture was “The light and Dark Sides of Life.” The lecturer commeuced by saying that the brightest and best pictures were represen tations of human hie. One would see iu them the beautiful, and bo charmed and made hap py by looking thereon, while another would see in them no beauty. One sees all npon the bright side, while the other sees nothing but dark and sombre hues. These two characters, he said, he designed to speak of. The same persons at different peri,sis of life may belong to I Kith classes. One page in hu man life is written in brightness, as if illumin ated by phosphorescent light, while the other is writteu in tears and darkness. He then proceeded to give the reasons tor these differences in life. It is seen in children. One surprises you with its confidence, while the other is suspicious and distant. Physical derangement has] something to do with this difference. The surroundings of life have much to do with tho difference. We are not to look for the bright side of life among polar icebergs, where everything is calculated to harden the man. The whole aspect is sometimes determined by a single circumstance of life. Bereavement will sometimes turn every cup into bitterness. Some men are so in doubt that their hopes always tarry with them. Some men appear to see meanness in their neighbor, when in truth, it is only the reflection of their own nature. Bees will draw honey from the thoroughwort blossoms, while turkey buzzards scorn such meat and turn to the carion. Some men’s theology makes them despond ing, while others are able to seo beauty and glory in all that pertains to immortality. We are placed here to learn and to struggle, not to Bleep and dream- We are bore to hlep each other; and hence, to know how to do our work we must see the shadows of life to fit us for our work. Some men need disappointment and opposi tion to call out their energies. Push them, and they will stand tho more firmly. Let them fail a half a dozen times in business, and they will then arise and succeed. Hide the sun from them and they will invent gas. They would never know, and the world would have never known what was in them but for experi encing for a while the dark side of life. The man who sees and sets forth the bright side of life, is a happy man. Disease and death hesitate to attack a man whose every act abounds in joy. The outgushings of his genial nature are better than medicine. The bright side inspires men with hope, while hope makes heroes. The dark side leads to despondency— and despondency makes cowards. To attempt anything like a report of the lec ture would be presumption, for he must be a strange man who would not forget that he had either penoil or paper before him, so riveted would the attention become. The audience were held spell-bound from beginning to end. Dramatic Entertainment.—We learn that some of the Amateurs of this city will give an entertainment at Deering Hall on Friday even ing, March 1, for the benefit of the library of i the Portland Army and Navy Union. The plays selected for the occasion are light and brilliant, well calculated to please, and in which the participants can display their dramatic powers. These Amateurs are composed of some of the most accomplished ladies and gentlemen, and our citizens have, heretofore, had an opportun ity to witness their excellence and proficiency in “the histrionic art.” The management of the affair is in capable bands, and something superior may be expected. It is the only opportunity our citizens will have to witness Portland talent or the stage for only one entertainment will bo given.— These young ladies and gentlemen desirous of assisting, as far in their power as possible, the efforts of the Army and Navy Union to estab lish a library, have consented to give the single entertainment. It will be wise in those who wish to witness it, to secure seats in season. Further particulars will be announced in a day or two. Portland Theatre—The burlesque, Cin derella, is the best thing of the kind that has been produced for many seasons. The scenery is good, the music is good, the acting is good enough for the piece, the puns are abominable, and the audience behaves well in such trying HitiialioiiM os tlicso luttor ntrooi ties Hi (luce. Small boys should not be allowed to talk aloud at the stove dnring the singing unless they do it in tune, liecause this is thoroughly base. Mr. Clark's make-up for the Baron is something wonderful, so also is that of Cinderella’s sweet sister, (Mrs. E. Thompson), particularly the nose, and this lady’s impersonation seemed ex tremely satisfactory to the audience. Com plaints have reached us that some of the ac tors indulge in gratuitous profanity on the stage. We arc glad to see that the profanity is left out of “Cinderella,” as it is certainly shock ing to a large part of any decent audience, and there is no wit in swearing. We hope this burlesque will run a while longer, as there is more lun in it than forty doleful plays, and the management deserve to be well repaid for their pains and expense. This evening is set apart for the benefit of Mr. C. H. Clarke, on which occasion there will be unusual attractions. Post Office.—Contracts are being made for the erection of a temporary building for the Post Office, on the lot bounded by Federal, Ex change and Market streets. The building will be erected immediately, and will bo occupied by the Post Office until the new building, tol>e erected on the site of the present office, is erect ed and completed. The Custom House will be removed to the chambers of the Savings Bank Block on Ex change street, until the new Custom House on Commercial street is ready. Tho new building to be erected on the site of the present Post Office is intended for a Post Office and for the United States Courts and Internal Revenue offices. It will be near two years before it is finished. Mr. and Mrs . Howard Paul were welcom- ' ed by a full house last evening, and gave a truly enjoyable entertainment. They possess much dramatic ability, and the lady’s voice is one of remarkable compass and power. Her “imita tions” of Brignoli and Sims Reeves were very fine us songs—and that of Brignoli, we were assured by a friend who had heard him, was excellent as an imitation. One can hardly fail whatever his- taste, to find something in their performance to gratify it; and those who de light in ‘‘Mirth that wrinkled care derides, And laughter, holding both his sides," will find it a rich treat to hear them. “When George the Third was King,” as 1 Mr. P. gave it, was one of the best specimens of comic singing which we remember to have heard; and Mr. and Mrs. Doubledot,*' by Mrs. P.f among the cleverest things in its way that can be imagined. We commend them to the lovers of mirth and music wherever they may go; and hope our people nifty enjoy another opportunity meeting them. Dispatch.—Monday Messrs. O'Brion, Pierce & Co. sent a telegram to San Francisco, order ing 500 barrels of California flour to be ’pur chased and shipped to them at this port.

It will arrive here in about | six weeks. Terrible ; Fatal Accident.—Mr. Dana C. Brigham, of Saccarappa, while at work in bis saw mill in that village yesterday afternoon, fell upon a circular saw. His head struck it and was completely sawn asuuder, killing him instantaneously. His age was about 60 years. He was one of the most respected citizens of that place. The Case oe Rounds.—Frank Rounds who has been on trial for two days past in Boston, for the murder of Adolphe Prager, yesterday, after the evidence in the case was all out, re tracted his plea of not guilty and pleaded guilty of murder in the second degree. He was immediately sentenced to imprisonment for life in the State Prison. Wkllcohe’s Liver Regulator is a sure and safe cure for liver complaints.

On placing the cover on the box the broken edges of the stamp fitted exactly, and on this proof the prisoner goes to the penitentiary for ten years. THE STATE. —A tumor weighing eight pounds wm re moved from the side of a man in Bangor, on Thursday last, by Dr. H.'A. Reynolds of that city. The incision, made direetiy over the hip joint, was seventeen inches long. -The schooner Cheviot, of Harrington in this State, Capt.

If the facts stated in the following communi cation, which comes to us from a most intelli gent and respectable source, are to bo relied upon, the value of the enterprise to which it refers, to Portland, cannot ho over-estimated. For the lumber and the local trade and the pleasure travel alone the road should be built. But when in addition thereto it is considered that it is to be connected with and become a part oi a through line to Ogdensburg—bring ing that place, by railroad (as is believed by the friends of the road) within 306 miles of Portland—and that it will secure to our city the bulk of the trade ot the northern half of Vermont, its importance becomes so patent and commanding that there should be no hesi tation in determining upon its early construc tion. The great house of Fairbanks & Co., of St. J ohnsbury, have already subscribed $100,000 to the stock of tho corporation which is to build the westerly section of this line. And while this work of great necessity is going on, the Portland & Rochester road should, and wo believe will, be pushed forward to its completion— thus giving us another way to Boston, Now York and the West. With these enterprises consummated, there can remain no question of the rapid growth and great prosperity of Portland. And among the certain and not distant results will be week ly trips through the summer, and semi-weekly jn the winter by the ocean steamers between Liverpool and Portland. Western products can be delivered at Ogdensbnrg at as low rates as at Oswego, and the former is as near Portland as the latter is to New York. And when the unequalled facility at Portland for the transfer of produce from tho cars to the steamships, and the very small port charges here, are contrasted with the expenses at New York, it will not be doubted that Western produce can be put on shipboard in Portland harbor at less cost than it can be in New York. Lowell, Feb. 1867. To the Editor of the Press: I Dotice by a letter in the Boston Journal, that your city is interested in tho project of a railroad connecting it by a more direct route with the West, and that one of the routes sug gested extends up the valley of the Saco to Conway and thence to Wells River. In refer ence to fhis line, which I believe to be the shortest, and of the easiest grade ot any that has been thought of, and of the greatest ad vantage to Portland. I beg you to allow me a few words. 1. Of the route. It should be by the Saco river valley to Fryeburg and Conway, thence by Swift’s or Sawyer’s river, and thence to the east branch of Pemigewasset and on through Lincoln, Landaff and Bath to Wells river. From Albany to Lincolu is about twenty miles. I have been from Lincoln up the Pemigewasset river, some seventeen miles, and consider this route through tho woods one of the most level, and of the easiest grade for a railroad, that I ever saw. When you get to Conway and Albany you have nearly reach ed the height of land. From Albany to Woodstock through tho White Mountains the grade I think will nut exceed fifty feet to the mile. 2. This road will open a trade of more than 300,000 acres of virgin timber lands to the Portland market. In Albany, Woodstock, Lincoln, Cand$ff, &c., there are more than two thousand rhillions of timber consisting of the best pine, spruce, hemlock and hardwood lumber. The birch and maple are of the best quality for ship building. This timber would go to Portland as there is no other outlet for the most part of it, and Portland is much near er than any other port. This road could take vast quantities of lumber from Northern New Hampshire at a rate of $3.50 or $4.00 per M. over a down grade road of 00 or 70 miles and pay well. The distance from Portland to these wild lands does not exceed sixty miles. 3. This road would command nearly all the White Mountain travel, and it would pass within a few miles of Mount Washington and within nine miles of Franconia Notch. I. W. N. A Nbw iNVaNiiON.—This is the age of nov elties. We were quite aware that an almost endless variety of useful and ornamental arti cles were already made of paper, but we con fess to having been slightly surprised on learn ing orieofthe new purposes to which this ma terial is put. A company calling themselves the “Furlong Paper Pantalet Company” has been formed at Mechanic Falls for the purpose of manufacturing pa]>cr borderings to lw used in ornamenting the bottoms of ladies’ and chil dren’s under-garments. These borderings are made of different sizes in order to accommo date themselves to the different variety of un. der garments, and put up in round boxes of nearly the same size as gentlemen’s collar box es, each box containing five pairs of different designs and patterns of tho most elaborate workmanship and finish, and manufactured from a paper peculiarly adapted to the pur pose. The name of “Pantalet” seems to have been given to them for want of a better,' but they are more properly in the nature of an orna mental finish similar to the embroidery usual ly worn. The paper border is secured by but tons concealed under a tuck; when adjusted, they cannot be told from the finest needlowork The utility of this invention may be summed up in a lew words: .They are prettier andjtgat er than the same designs could be produced upon fabrics. When soiled they can be readily removed without taking off the under garment and if desired a new pair substituted. They are cheap; they can be carried in a small box; they are always well done up, and they avoid the necessity of starching. That they will immedi ately commend themselves to the favor of ev ery lady we have no doubt. We nnderstand.that the owners of this patent have refused an offer of >100,000 for it; and have'established a manufactory at Mechanic Falls, where they are daily receiving orders for the goods.
