The Maine l.iqaar Lav, To the Edit, lit or the Press : In a late number of your paper a correspond ent favors a repeal of our Prohibitory Liquor law, and the enactment of a stringent License law. An article in the Argus of the 31st, un der the head oi '"Failure of the Maine Liquor Law in Massachusetts,” goes in lor the same legislation, and alleges that the License law which formerly prevailed in this State was the best for temperance of any law we have ever bad. No one of common sense and com mon observation, unless he were a drinker or was interested in the sale of liquors, would make such an assertion. Every one knows that the license law alluded to was no‘check upon the sale; that under the law every one sold that wished to; that intoxication prevailed to such an extent that Prohibitiou was resort to to protect the people from its awful effects; and that Prohibition worked most salutary results until the leaders of the Democratic party made a party question of it, and invited all drinkers and sellers to join them in a cru sade against the law. Notwithstanding all this opposition, the law has worked won ders when it lias beeu enforced in localities where combinations did not set the law at de fiance by a general fund, which by the light ness of the penalties they were enabled to keep good, to pay the fines and costs of those prosecuted. The contributions to this fund be ing put upon the drinker, the verniers were ' enabled to pursue tbeir business at a profit aud go unwhipped of justice. Now the friends of humanity intend to have the law so amended as to reach the seller and let him feel and bear a part of the penalty of the violation of the law. When the law con signs the seller !o imprisonment for the first offence, and is executor, as the friends of Tem perance intend it shall be, we think the seller and his dupes and the disappointed politicians will not be able to say the law is without effect, ft is wouderthl wbat arguments are adduced in favor of a license law. For example the Argus says,“The principle of prohibition is to make men temperate by removing temptation. Why not carry out the principle ? Why not nuke men chaste by removing all temptation to unchastity? Why not make men hon est by removing all temptation to dis honesty ? Does the writer mean to imply that uncliastity, dishonesty, murder, aud all other revolting crimes, are licensed? Are they not all prohibited ? Yes, thank God, licences to commit crime are not found on our statute books. Bad men with money are not permitted by law to murder, steal, and make their fellow men worse than beasts. The State of Maine has the honor of being the first, to trike from her statute books the last relic of barbarism, and long may it be ere she says to any of her citizens, you may murder, steal, lie, and commit all manner of crimes, at a price. Prohibition Denlh John Kilbura. ^Ou the morning of Jan. 1, 1867, the citizens of Brhlgton were apprised of the fact, that one of the oldest inhabitants of the town, Col. John Kill)urn, had passed away from earth. He was stricken down with a severe stroke of paralysis, and after lingering for a few days in a state of unconsciousness, left the shore of time, for “that undiscovered country, from whose Imirn no traveler returns." He was in his 85th year Mr. Kilburn, was a man much beloved by all who knew him. At the age of twenty-three he became a member of the Oriental Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons. Here, he became endeared to tho hearts of his brethren, so that they deemed him worthy, and well qualified to fill the highest office within the gifts of the lodge. Accordingly he was elected its Master, which office he filled with credit to himself and' honor to the Fraternity. At the age of forty eight, he became convinced of the importance of a religious life, and at once found the price less pearl. Subsequently, he connected him self with the first Congregational church in Bridgtou, of which he remained a worthy and useful member till the day of his death. May the surviving members of the lodge, church community and family, be enabled so to live,’ that they, like him, may be beloved in life, lamented in death, and secure in the world’ to conic, the reward of the righteous which we doubt not is his. q_ Sculling Match.—Haiiill a mu w.,» Brown.—Some time since W'nuhM.hci from Walter Brown, 3." yowg NewXXnl oarsman who defeated Joslma, Ward ^rine to row James Hamill five miles On Svm 8 “t we had a call from Bro?n? who h Jco^ to tins city to make a match with Hamil' cording to appointment.

The friends of these men ad dressed a letter of remonstrance to General Ttllson, declaring that they had “accepted in good faith the present status of aflaira,” that they are law-abiding citizens, and praying that they be released. In reply, Major-General Thomas has sent to the mayor of Rome the fol lowing, in which the evident failure of these chivalrous gentry to comprehend what the ex isting status is, would seem to be set forth in a manner which even Southerners ought to be able to understand. It is as good as anything which has yet been said on the frequent impu dent mauifestations of rebel sentiment: HEADQUARTERS HEP T OF TENNESSEE, I Louisville, Ky., Feb. 9,1867. 1 Charles H. Smith, Mayor of the City of Rome, Georgia, and Other f:— , , Gentlemen:—The Mayor-General command ing the department directs me to acknowledge the receipt of vour communication of the -»tb ultimo, addressed to Brevet Major-General Davis Tillson, commanding sub-district of Georgia, giving statement ot fact# and circum stance which caused the arrest of certain cit izens of Borne, Ga., tor being concerned in the display of the flag of the late Southern con federacy in that city, and asking that justice may be done and the prisoners released. In your letter you state no disrespect was intended to the United States government by the exhibition of the confederate flag, and that the parties who displayed it have accepted in good faith the present status of affairs, and do acknowledge the jurisdiction of the United State government, &c. It that is the case it can only be supposed, presuming that they possess ordinary intelli gence, that they misunderstood the present status of affairs, which is that the rebellion has been decided to be a huge crime, embodying all the crimes of the decalogue, and that it has been conquered and disarmed, and that its very name and emblems are hateful to the peo ple of the United States; and he must be in deed obtuse who expects, without offence, to parade before the eyes of loyal people that which they execrate, and their abborrenue of which they have expressed in the most em phatic language in which it is possible for a great nation to utter its sentiments. It is pretended by certain newspapers that because no order had been issued from these headquarters that the flag of the confederacy was not to see the light, the citizens were not warned that it would be a treasonable act. i nis excuse is too puerile to answer, anil un worthy ol a schoolboy even. The young men arrested, as well as other citizens ol the South, know well enough what is right and what, is wrong in such matters, without waiting to be guided by orders especially naming ana pro hibiting displays honoring treason, and of course contemning loyalty. Were they so stu pid os not to possess such innate sense of pro priety, the order from these headquarters .for bidding a glorification over the remains of the rebel Brigadier-General Hanson should have been a sufficient warning that such perform ances would not be tolerated. The sole cause of this and similar offences lies in the fact that certain citizens >f Borne, and a portion of the people in the States late ly in rebellion, do not and have not accepted the situation, and that is, that the late civil war was a rebellion, and history will be so re cord it. Those engaged in it are and will be pronounced rebels; rebellion implies treason, and treason is a crime, and a heinous one too, and deserving of punishment; and that traitors have not been punished is owing to the mag nanimity of the conquerors. W^th too many people of the South the late civil war is called a revolution, rebels are called “confederates," loyalists to the whole country are called damn ed Yankees and traitors, and over the whole great crime, with its accursed record of slaugh tered heroes, patriots murdered because of their true-hearted love of country, widowed wives and orphaned children, and prisoners of war slain amid such horrors as find no parallel in the history of the world, they are trying to throw the gloss of respectability, and thrusting with contumely and derision from their socie ty the men and women who would not join hands with them in the work of i uining their country. Everywhere in the States lately in rebellion treason is respectable and loyalty odious. This the people of the United States, who ended the rebellion and saved the coun try, will not permit, and all attempts to main tain this unnatural order of things will be met by decided disapproval. As, however, it is pretended by the friends of the citizens arrested that they were so igno rant as not to know that it was wrong for pa roled prisoners and unpunished traitors to glo ry in their shame and Haunt the symbol of of their crimes in the face of the country, they will be released from confinement, with the understanding that no act of treason will be jiassed unnoticed when detected, and may they and others who think like them profit by the lesson they have received. Wit. I>. Whipple, Brevet Major-General U. S. A. and A. A. G. What General Grant Bays. A correspondent of tbe Troy Times visited General Grant on Saturday, and obtained some of the General’s views in regard to affairs iu the South. According to this correspondent's report, General Grant thinks there is little se curity for the life or property of Union men in the gTeater part ot the South. There is little danger in the ordinary lines of travel, but if one “should stop and get into angry political discussions, there would be danger in some places, no doubt. In that case shooting would probably be passed off as justifiable homicide, if the murderer was arrested at all.” Female Medical Feactitionehs.—The British Medical Journal says the British Tem ple ef Medicine is likely to he besieged by lair invaders entering through the hall offthe Apothecaries Society. In the last week of January three ladies were examined by Dtb. Buchanan, Griffith and Brodribb in Euclid arithmetic, English history, Latin translations &c., &c.; their propositions were stated with all the required geometrical accuracy. The Journal adds: “If they prove as orthodox in i medical art as they are accurate in constitu tional accuarcy there will be nothing to alarm the most conservative minds." THE STATE. —In Skowhegan, a few evenings since, a party of gentlemen and ladies were driving on the river in a large double sleigh, when the horses taking tright, became unmanageable, and finally iu their terror overturned tho sleigh, throwing the whole party out. One young la dy, daughter of Mr. Robert Tuttle, received in juries to the spine which it was feared might prove serious. Another, whose name our in formant did not learn, had her ankle badly hurt. Mr. S. Leland received some injuries, not, we understand of a serious nature, and others of the party were treated to a variety of cuts and contusions more or less severe. —The store of Robinson & Priest, at North Vassal boro', was broken open on the night of the 14th inst, and a small sum of money taken. There were also on the same night unsuccess ful attempts made to break into the post office and two other stores. On the same night Mr. H. G. Abbott had six sheep stolen. —The Machias Republican says, on Friday night, Feb. 8th, a millinery store belonging to Miss Martha Dorman, of Clierryfield, was en tirely destroyed by fire. Insured for $1,500. —At the Christian convention held iu Au gusta on the 19 and 20 inst., resolutions were adopted and ordered to be communicated to the Legislature in favor of the proposed amendment to the Liquor Law. —Msg. I. H. Willard is writing a brief his tory of the town of Wilton, which the Maine Farmer is publishing. Msg. Willard is now 72 years of age, and from his aquaintance with some of the earliest settlers of the town has good facilities for performing the task he has undertaken. —The Gardiner Homo Journal has put its reading columns into a handsome dreBS of new type, and looks as neat as a new pin. We are glad to see this evidence of its prosperity. —The Mate of the brig Mariposa of Stockton reported lost overboard on the passage from Mobile to Boston, was Capt. J. H. George of Belfast, where he leaves a wife and family. —The Belfast Age reports a remarkable case. Rev. Joseph Higgins of Thorndike> aged 91 years, and his wife Mrs. Betsey Hig gins, aged 89 years, both died on the fitl) of February, and within ten hours of each other, by no especial sickness except the breaking down ot old age. -The Belfast Age says Mr. S. A. Moulton, stove and hardware dealer, was suddenly stricken down with paralysis on Monday, last week, while in the office of W. P. Harriinan Esq. He was taken to his boarding house, where he remained speechless until Thursday when he died. —The Home Journal says the entire family seven in all, ot Deacon Bassett of West Gardi ner are sick of small-pox. —We learn from the Journal that on the 13th. inst, Ada Augusta, a daughter of Wm. and J. Moody, of East Pittsqn, aged 10 years, fell on the ice, and received slight blow on her head, from the effects of which she died in twelye hours. —We see it stated that tlio wife of Captain Cony of the steamship City of Bath, recently burned off Cape Hatteras, is a niece of Hon. Hannibal Hamlin. # Governor Cony, tho commissioner appointed by Governor Chamberlain to settle the claims of this State against tho general government, arrived in Washington on Wed nesday. He is assisted by J. H. Manley United States commissioner for the district of Maine. —The Kennebec Journal understands that the terms on which Hon. Phinehas Barnes de clines accepting the Presidency ot the Stato Industrial College are such as to leave the Trustees, even by an anticipated change in the board, the most perf ect freedom in the sel ection of a president. Mr. Barnes was unani mously elected and as no change in the mem bers of the board of Trustees is at present an tic, pated there ought not to be a shadow of “to the action of the Trustees, nor, in i 15.2 £.'***6 circumstances, of the withdraw > al of the letter of declination. portla#i> Axt> r/OLV/rr Hew jUtmiwucnu T«-0«y. spbMal notice column.

Portland Imtiiaie and Public Library. The first meeting of the association incorpor ated under this name will l>e held this after noon, at 3 o'clock, at the Council Chamber in the Old City Hall, Market Square. The meet ing is for organization,and all persons interested are invited to attend. It is the purpose of the corporators, as we are informed, to enlarge the association at once by the admission of all citi zens who may wish to join, giving to the insti tution the popular character which its name would indicate. We publish below the act of incorporation: STATE or MAIZE. t An Act to incoyorate the Portland Institute and Public Library. Be it enacted, Ac., Ac. Sect. 1. Ether Shepley, Wm. P. Fessenden, Israel Washburn, Jr., John Neal, John C. Stockbridge, John Band, William Willis, John B. Brown, William H. Fenn, Lorenzo D. M. Sweat, Henry P. Deane, Samuel E. Spring and Edwin C.

Lewis Barker, Speaker. In Senate, Jan. 22,1867. This bill having had two several readings, passed to be enadted. N. A. Burpee, President. January, 22,1867: Approved. J. L. Chamberlain, Governor. About Horns.—There is an ancient and tish like custom among the youth of this city, of celebrating the birth-day of the First Presi dent by a concert of tin horns, which we sin cerely think would be more appropriate on the anniversary of the Last President’s St. Louis speech. We are informed by people who ought to know that the youngsters have not been pre luding as usual this year, and we hope and pray that the day may be allowed to pass wi(£i out disturbance. We desire especially to call the attention of parents, of the police, of the boys themselves, and other influential members of society, to the fact that this outrageous din and riot is not merely an annoyance to a few fussy old gentlemen and old ladies, who per haps are not entitled to much consideration, but to many sick people who really ought not to be tormented by this needless and absurd practice. Alleged Lakoenv.—Mrs. Bacon, of Yar mouth, was yesterday brought before our Mu nicipal Court charged with larceny of $300. It appears that Mrs. Bacon was an Assistant, or Matron in charge of some of the j.oor in that town. A pauper died there recently who was possessed of some $300. This money Mrs. Ba con obtained, fraudulently, as is alleged by com plainants j but sbe states that the pauper gave it to her. Messrs. Drummond & Davis appear ed for the State, and Messrs. Shepley & S trout for the respondent. The examination was post poned. Theatbe.—To-night is set apart for the ben efit of Miss Dollie Bidwell, upon which occa sion Mr. George E. Locke, or as he is better known, “Yankee Locke,” whose recent per formances in this city met with great success has generously oftered his services and will ap pear in one of his most amusing characters. This, in connection with the great sceuic spec tacle of Cinderella, should give tho fair benefi ciary an overflowing house. To-morrow after noon a performance will be given for the bene fit of the ladies and children. Death of Mibb Jones.—Our citizens, and the thousands of people abroad who have ex perienced the hospitalities and kindness of the proprietors of Miss Jones' Boarding House, will hear with regret that Miss Caroline, the oldest of the sisters, is no more. After long and patient suffering she sank to her final rest yesterday. Her illness has been of protracted duration, but Bhe bore it quietly, and was per fectly (resigned to meet death, of whose ap proach she was well aware. Tar Barrels.—There is too much combus tible staff lying round loose in all ol our streets —materials and shavings from buildings that have been recently erected or which are now going up—to allow boys to haul burning tar barrels through the streets to-night, as has been customary with them on the 22d of February. We understand tbat the police have orders to stop any such proceedings, and trust the boys will take notice of this and not get themselves into trouble. Periodicals.— The Atlantic Monthly and Our Young Folks, for March are superior num bers. They can be had at the bookstores of Messrs. Bailey & Noyes, Exchange street; Short & Loring, corner of Free and Centre streets: C. K. Chisholm & Brothers, 307 Con gress street; A. Robinson, 325 Congress street; alBO at the periodical depots of Messrs. Fessen den Brothers, Lancaster Hall, and Chisholm Brothers. Grand Trunk depot. Liquor Seizures.—Yesterday the Deputy Marshals seized small quantities of liquors in the shops kept by Ephraim Gammon, on Com mercial Wharf, James McLaughlin, on Com mercial street, Susan Duddy, on Spring street and William Bowen, on Centre street. Steamer St. Geobqe.—The steamship “St. George,” Capt. Smith, which arrived at this port a few days since, is not one of the Anchor line, but one of the, Glasgow line of the Mon treal Ocean Steamship Company. Allen, at his new store on Exchange street, is selling figs at prices that will indicate that e good time coming” for housekeepers is not far distant. See advertisement. Wellcome prepares the most valuable paiu curer we ever had in our store.” So says W F. Phillips. Those who use it refuse all others janTdlawtl »a*a BhiohIm.-Wc ciAnicW jestetday the terrible accident which put an end to the Ufe ot this estimable citizen. Hr. Brigham was the senior partner of the firm of Brigham, Clements & Warren, of Sicearappa. The particulars of the accident do not vary from those already published. At about four o’clock Wednesday afternoon, Mr. Brigham stepped upon the edging tablo with his back to the gang of saws in his mill. In attempting to move the board he lifted his loot which came in contact with the saws, throwing him down, and as he fe’l the saws struck his head killing him instantly. Thus passed away one of the most upright, useful and unassuming men of Saccarappa. This sad event has produced a profound impression upon the community in which Mr. Brigham moved. All the mills were shut down yesterday, we are told, and business was nearly suspended. Mr. Brigham was B6 years of age, though bis fine health and cheerful spirits gave him the appearance of a younger mau. He leaves a wife and two children, a daughter nineteen and a son seventeen years of age. The funeral services will take place Sunday afternoon, at two o’clock, at the late residence of the de ceased. The Fortification Bill.—The Boston Ad vertiser’s dispatch says of the fortification bill, reported in the Home on Wednesday, that it foots up less than half as much as that killed ten days ago, and will probacy pass, unless smothered with amendments. The New Eng land appropriations are as follows: Fort Scam mel, Portland harbor, $50,000; Fort Gorges, Portlaud harbor, $50,000; Fort Preble, Portland harbor, $60,000; Forts Warren, Inde pendence and Winthrop, Boston harbor, $50, 000 each; the Fort attho entrance of New Bed ford harbor, $30,000. The appropriations ol the lormer bill for Forts Popham and Constitution, and for the sea wails on Deer and Lovell’s and Great Brewster Islands, are omitted alto gether! < Portland and the West.—We desire to correct a typographical error which occurred in our remarks on this subject yesterday. We were made to say that the distance from this port to Ogdensburg by rail through the Saco valley is “believed by the friends of the road to be 365 miles.” We intended to say 335,— thirty mileB less, which at $25,000 a mile is quite an item.

The Pump is 3 ineh chamber, and 5 inch stroke, and will throw so gallons of wratcr per minute through a 3-8th Inch nozzle, from 70 11 80 feet, and can be forced by one ojierator t > 100 gallons per min ute, and forced through a longer uo-e to a much greater distance. Tlio Noven’s Patent Pump needs no direction, as any one can set them, and repair them if necessary. What we claim tor Neven’s Double-Acting Pump Is its Simplicity and Utility, and being the cheapest and most durable Pump ever produced.
