\\ hiuier’a «•» l*acm. “The Tent on the Beach.” This eagerly expected volume was published by Ticknor & Fields on Saturday. The sweet and mellow fruit ot the poet’s ripened genius, it will be read with deep enjoyment by all who appreciate the author’s power of rich and viv id description, of melodious expression, and the purity of moral and loftiness of patriotic sentiment to which he gives such vigorous ut terance. We do not propose to ufler any tempt at criticism upon the contents o 1 hook, but choose rather the more grate u a. of presenting to cir readers such extracts as we have space for, that they may form their own estimate of its quality “The Tent on the Beach” is the longest poem in the volume, and “‘>“sisls ot' mne »hort Po ems linked together in a manner suggestive of the “Canterbury Tales.” The poet camps out on Salisbury Shore with two comrades, and in the evening “around tlieir lighted kerosene,” he brings forth the treasures of his portfolio, and reads aloud to his friends. A somewhat shadowy lady guest ifl introduced, who joins in the pleasant talk, and sings one or two sweet songs. The poem opens with the fol lowing picture of Salisbury Beach: When heats as of a tropic clime Burned all our iulaiui valleys through, Three friends, the guests of summer lime, Filched their white tent where sea-winds blew. Behind them, marshes, seamed and crossed With narrow creeks, and flower-embossed, Stretched u> the dark oak wood, whose leafy arms Screened from the stormy East the pleasant inland forms. At full of tide their bolder shore Of sun-bleached sand the waters beat; At ebb, a smooth aud glistening floor 'They : ached with light, receding leet, Northward a green blutf broke the chain Of sand-hills; southward stretched a plain Of salt-grass, with a river winding «town. Sail-white.aid, and beyond the steeples ot the town, Whence sometime! .when the wind ni light And null the thunder of the beach, Thev heard the bells of morn and night Swing, miles away, their stiver speech. Above low scarp and lurl-grown wall They saw the fort flag rise and fall; And, the lirst star to signal twilight’s hoar, The lamp-fire glimmer down from the tall lighthouse tower. They rested there, escaped awhile From cares that wear the life away, To eat the lotus of the Nile And drink the poppies of Cathay— To fling their loads of custom down, Like drift-weed on the sand-slopes brown, And in the sea waves drown the restless pack Of duties, claims aud needs that barked upon their tra;k. He then proceeds to describe the three friends, the lirst among whom is Mr. J. T. Fields, the widely known member ol the firm of Ticknor & Fields: One, with his beard scarce silvered, tore A ready credence in Ids looks, A lettered magnate, lording o’er An ever-widening realm of books. In him, brain-currents, near and tar, Converged as in a Leyden jar; The old, dead authors thronged him round about, And Elzevir’s gray ghosts from leathern graves looked out. He knew each living pundit well, Could weigh the gifts of him or her, And well the market value tell Of poet and philosopher. But. if be lost, the scenes behind, Somewhat of reverence vague and blind, Finding the actors human at the best, No readier ips tban his the good he saw confessed. His boyhood fancies not outgrown, He loved himself the Bidder’s art; Tenderly, gently, by his own He km w and judged an author’s heart. No Radnmantldne brow' of doom Bowed the dazed pedant itaiin the room; And bards, whose name is legion, if denied, Bore off alike intact their verses and their pride. These two stanzas clearly reveal one known almost the world over, at once as a traveller, poet and author: Ami one, whose Arab face was tanned By tropic sun and boreal frost, So travelled there wag scarce a land or people left him to. exhaust, In idling mood had from him hurled, The pc u- squeeze 1 orange of the world, And iu the teat-shade as beneath a palm, Smoked, cross-legged, like a Turk, in Oriental calm. The very waves that washed the sand Below him, he had seen before Whitening the Scandinavian strand And sultry Mauritanian shore. From ice-rimmed isles, from summer seas Valm-fringedL they bore him messages; lie heard the plaintive Nubian Bongs again, And mule-bells tinkling down the mountain paths ot Spain. Next the poet draws his own portrait in the following lines: And one there was, a dreamer torn, Who, with ambsion to iultil, Had lef the Muses* haunts to turn The crank of an opinion-mill, Mak ng his rustic reed of song A weapon in the war with wrong, Yoking his fancy to the breaking-plough That beam-deep turned the soil for truth to spring and grow, Too quiet seemed the man to ride The winged Hippojfriff Reform; Was liia a voice from side to Hide To pierce the tumult of the storm? m A silent, shy, peace-loving man, He -eemed no fiery partisan To holding wa. against the public frown. The ban o church and state, the fierce mob's hound ing down. For while he wrought with strenuous wtll Th. work his hands haul found to do, lie heard the fitful music still Of winds that out of dream-land blew. The din z'> >u‘ him could not drown What the sfranae voices whispered down : Along his task-field wierd processions swept, The visionary pomp of stately phantoms stepped. • ?he common air w as thick with dream*_ He told them to the toiling crowd; Such music as tin* woods and streams Sang in his ear he sangaloud; In still, shut ba s, on windy capes, He card the call or beckoning shapes, And. as the gray old shadows prompted him, To homely moulds of rhyme he shaped their legends grim, lie rested now his weary hands. An {lightly moralized and laughed, t As, trac ng on the whiffing sands A burlesque of his paper craft, He saw the cart less w aveso'errun HiH words, as time before had done. Each day’s Lide-waier wash ng clean away, Like letters from the :-and, the work of yesterday. The poems linked together by this graceful chain of verse are: “The Wreck of River mouth,” “The Grave by the Lake,” “The Brother of Mercy,” “The Changeling,” “The Maids of Attitash,” ‘ Kalhiudborg Church,” “The Dead Ship of Harps we 11,” “The Pala tine,” and ‘ Abraham Davenport.” In addition to these the volume contains five under the head of “National Lyrics,” “The Mantle of St. John de Matlia,” “What the Birds said,” “Laus Deo!” “The Peace Au tumn,” and tlie address “To the Thirty-ninth Congress,” aud various “Occasional Poems,” among which are “The Eternal Goodness,” ‘‘Our Master,” “The Vanishers,” “Revisited,” “The Common Question,” “Bryant on his Birthday,” and “Thomas Starr King.” The book is for sale by Davis Brothers, and by C. R. Chisholm & Brother, .*107 Congress street aud G.T. Depot. I,rgi>lniijn for the Benefit of Kailroads. TO THE EDITOll OP THE PKESS: The attention of the Legislature for the past week lies been devoted to the routine business, and all subjects which would elicit debate have beenlaid'aslde. A somewhat spicy debate occurred upon the report of the Committee in relation to the State assumption of town war debts. The minority report was finally adopted. The bill authorising cities and towns to ren der aid to railroads within the limits of 5 per cent, of their respective valuation, (which is known as the New Hampshire law), after be ing reported liy the railroad committee to the Senate and passed to be engrossed, there was 8 nt to the House and on its passage there to be engrossed an attempt was made1 to substi tute another bill, wliiofi proposed a change of the Constitution, whereby several railroad companies should receive the aid of the State credit to the amount of $10,000 per mile. It is curious to watch the schemes of the Eu ropean and North American Jtailrnad manag ers wlio have, so far, monopolized all the rail roal favor i granted by the State of Maine. The deferred debts of the United States to Massachusetts and Maine, which have been reported favorably upon in Congress to the amount of two and one quarter millions, have been given it, as also all of the remaining State land, subject to the $150,000 due to Massachus etts from Maine toward the purchase, and tho company now come forward and ask to be re lieved from the payment of that debt, and that the State should re-assume it. It is reported that the lands can be disposed of in England for two millions of dollars, which would make up four and one q r millions of dollars to this great monopoly i ct withstanding which, an endeavor has been made to amend the hill permitting city and town aid to railroads, so that it can obtain $10,000 per mile additional aid from the State and the same amount for every railroad lead ing into that ami the central railroad, so as to constitute them the great leading thoroughfare through the State. A point of order was raised by Mr. Shcplcv tliat the amendment was a substitution of a new subject, which was referred to the Speak er fir de is am, anil the hill meanwhile was laid upon the table. The CHy and Town hill has so for received the most favorable consideration, as it places the burthen of the construction of the railroads upou those communities which are to re ceive the principal benefit from them. Oxford. A . ..1 h How, sonic four of five years old, aud who uad never seen a negro, was greatly «nn y Whr un<' % where he an 1 hi, father were.

VIoiho'O|i*lhic lIOHi>i«itl. The hemoeopathic physicians of this city are again making an effort to obtain official recog nition in our public institutions. A year ago tlieir application tor the use of a separate chol era hospital was refused by the Sanitary Com mittee of the Board of Health, and during the whole period of the epidemic no opportunity was given tor the proper exhibition of tbe re sults of homoeopathic treatment in any of our hospitals. Committees appointed by the Homoeopathic Medical Societies of the counties ot New York, Kings and \Vestehester are now preparing to renew the application fur the use of a separate hospital. They say : ”ali we ask is a fair field for the exiiibit.on of our “ure, and no favor.— We can only repeat our otter, already thrice made, to take charge of a hospital in any epi demic that may occur; said hospital to be un der our own administration and management, subject only to the supreme control of the Board of Health, and to be opfen at ail hours for inspection of its records, its prescriptions, or its patients by any persons duly appointed for that purpose.” Tliis is a fair offer, and we trust that neither routine nor prejudice will he permitted to stand in the way of its acceptance. Whether homw opatliy be abetter system of medical prac tice than allopathy, or tbe reverse, is a question which has nothing to do with the case. So large and respectable a part of the commu nity adopt the liomieopathie system of treat ment that they may reasonably ask the exclu sive use of at least ono out of so many public hospitals which arc essential in a season of epi demic— AT. r.

Look to the Voting Lists. Let every voter see whether his name is borne upon the voting lists. In making up these lists inacuracies wifi occur, and since the great fire they are, probably, more numerous than ever before. Let every voter examine the lists, and if Ills name is not on, or is on the wrong Ward, tave the matter rectified at the meetings of the Board of Aldermen, to Bfe held lor that purpose, on Thursday, Friday and Sat urday. “N. N. .Society.”—The dance given by the Young Ladies N. N. Society last evening, at Assembly Hall, was a brilliant affair. Every ticket was sold, and the hall presented a gay and attractive appearance. The ladies and gentlemen enjoyed themselves finely in various dances, and the good time was kept up until late hours. The benevolent object for which the entertainment was got up, will realize something handsome from the affair. By the way, we have not before mentioned this hall. It is in Brown’s block, corner of Brown and Congress streets, and is one of the handsomest and cosiest places for a dance or any entertainment that can be found in this city. About 100 couple, as we should .judge, can find space for dancing. The Assembly Hall is handsomely fitted up, and there are several ante-rooms for other purposes. Access to it is easy, by two flights of stairs. All who have used this hall speak in the highest terms of it. Deering Ham.—Cotton’s California Miu strels Were greeted last evening with an audi ence as large as could be wedged into the hallj Every seat and standing place was occupied.— The entertainment gave great delight, the mu sic, both vocal and instrumental, being excel lent. The jokes were rich and racy without be ing vulgar, and the dancing and acting com pelled great applause. This evening the sec ond entertainment will be given, when there will be an entire change of programme. This and to-morrow evenings are the only ones in which this tronpe can perform here. Heating Apparatus.—We would direct the attention of the numerous citizens that intend to build the coming season, to the advertise ment of Messrs. David Winslow & Son, res pecting heating buildings by steam or hot water apparatus. That gentleman will put it up in as handsome and faithful a manner as it can be done by workmen from abroad, and will guarantee the result. If any thing gets out of order they are here on the spot, and the diffi culty is qdickly remedied without having to send hundreds of miles to have some one come and repair the defect. Larceny and Arrest.—Yesterday morning complaint was made at the police office, by a householder, that he had been robbed of a quantity of household goods, such as towels, sheets, tfcc., and that he suspected a girl who had been at work in his house. A description ot her was furnished and the caso was put into the hands of officer Davis, who arrested tho girl just as she was taking tho cars to leave the city, and recovered the property. Instead of going to Kennebec county, the girl went to the lock-up. New Operation.—We understand that a very enterprising mechanic at Bath has made a contract to remove three dwelling houses from that city to this during the ensu ing season. One of the buildings is a story and a half high; the others are two stories. They are to be removed on gondolas or floats built for the purpose. The same gentleman last year removed a house from Bath to Boothbay, chimneys all standing, and uot a pane of glass was broken in the operation. The Samaritan Association acknowledge tho receipt from Samuel Rolfe, Ksq., executor of the estate of Mrs. Henry H. Boody, late of this city* of the sum of #500, generously bequeath ed by her to the funds of the Association, and desire thus publicly to express their apprecia tion of this kiml action, and of the many char itable offices of the lamented deceased. Per order, Mrs. C. M. Plummer, Treasurer. Serious Accident. — Saturday afternoon, while Capt. Willard’s crew were engaged in unloading bark Grace Redpath, one of the men had his head badly crushed by the swinging of a|hogshead of molasses against the hatchway His name was Blake, and he resided on Mun joy. He was taken to his residence: but it was feared that the injury would prove fatal, as blood gushed freely from his ears. Peterson’s Ladies’ Magazine for March has been received at the bookstores of Messrs Short & Loring, corner of Free and Centre streets, and C. R. Chisholm &|Brother, No. 'Ml Congress street. Also at tho periodical depot of Messrs. Fessenden Brother!, Lancaster Hall, and Chisholm Brothers, at the Grand Trunk Depot. Brokerage.—Henry P. Wood, “a chip of the old block,” has removed bis office to the new building corner of Exchange and Fore streets, ill the same room as the International Telegraph Company, where he will transact all kinds of brokerage business. He has one of the finest rooms in this city for that pur pose. Credit to Wbow Credit is Due.—Tho ci tizens residing ou State street are in no way backward in displaying their patriotism,and on the anniversary of Washington’s birthday there were six flags liung out on that street, about as many as were displayed in all the rest of the city. Personal.—Hon. John A. Peters passed through this city yesterday on his way to N\ asliington to take his seat as a member to the 40th Congress. The other members of the 40th Congress are all there, having been re elected. Mr. Rice is the only member that re tires. To those households that do a part or the whole of their washing, we commend the Steam Befined Soufis as greatly facilitating the process, and carrying its cleausiug effect to the last extreme; a property due to their peculiar manufacture. d&wlt W» call attention to the advertisement of the Y. M. C. A. Mr. Willetts is well and fav orably known to the lecture going public, as an able and popular lecturer, and the announce ment of his name should secure a full house. Fulton M arket.—The nicest corned hali but ami halibut fins can be had at the Fulton Market. Hopkins keeps hisestablishmcnt sup plied with all the luxuries of the finnytribe.

Arrangements have been made for a pleasant, social entertainment. Tickets can be had at the door. French Mirrors—The splendid French Mirrors, property of the estate of the late Hon. John M. Wood, that are to be sold at auction on Friday next, may be seen at the rooms of | Messrs. E. M. Patteu & Co., Plum street. Inforumtiou Wan nil. Westbrook, Feb. 25th, 1867.® To the Editor of the Press: Seeing a call in the Press for the Republicans of this town to meet at the Town Hall to nom inate candidates for town offices we went to the place at the specified time, and there found about thirty persons, a third of whom have till the present acted with the Republican party, the rest with the Democratic. Upon enquir ry, we learned that the two parties had “.fused,” and a committee of six—three from each of the old parties—had been appointed to select can didates to be supported at the polls on the day of election, and the committee had retired to at tend to the duty assigned them, fu one corner of the hall we found the “Town Republican Committee”—three in number—“swung” into a l'ttle “circle.’' From them we ascertained that they had not been consulted by those who Were “piping the Conglomerated mass”—that they had not even called the Republican ele ment of the meeting to order. The committee in due time “brought in" a “fusion ticket," and the “conglomerated mass” adjourned. Now, we wish to ask-the Republican Commit tee if they are going to sanction the proceedings of Saturday? if they are gying to vote to retain in office men who were foremost ip swindling the loyal tax-payers here out of twenty-four thousand dollars? It is very evident that the loyal voters of this town have the ascendency have the strength to elect a full board of loyal town officers. Why not, then, do so? When the “hot-bed of secession” was in a flourishing condition; when onr sons were starving in reb el slave pens, or upholding ths flag on the bat tle-field, uo overtures of “fusion” greeted our ears. Why this liberality now? Loyal voters of Westbrook, awake ! Be not caught napping. An attempt is being made to “sell you out” to the votaries of trea son. Will you allow wily political hucksters to buy and sell you as “human chattels?" Then meet together ere the day t>f election and proclaim yonr rights. Several Loval Republicans. [Since receiving the above, we have seen a copy of a poster cailing upon the Democratic voters of Westbrook to meet at the Town House, on Friday, March 1, at 3 o'clock, p. m., to nominate candidates for town officers. This looks as if the pretended fusion was, as our friends suppose, a “blind.”—En.] . Newbmrjrporl Ilcnu, Newburyport Mass. Feb. 25. 1867 No one who takes a casnal look at this city of olilen time would have an; idea of the amount of manufacturing that is done here. But the Internal Revenue books show a large return. One large foundry was found not to be sufficient to supply the demand for such work, and another one has been built which does a large business. The two Hat factories here have had a rush for the last year and paid good dividends. They have sunk money in the machine Brush factory, and have stopped at various times but 01 late have started up again. One of the most eccentric men that ever liv ed foe?e was Lord Timothy .Dexter, an English nobleman, who being wealthy, occasionally dipped into speculation, but was always lucky, even in such unpromising ventures as sending warming pans to the West Indies. He owned a rope factory, the foreman told him that they needed a little more hemp. The old man started off to Boston, and in a few days the foreman was surprised to And at the wharf two cargoes of hemp, enough to last three years. On the arrival of the old gentleman, he told him instead of those cargoes, bo only wanted half a ton. “\yell stow it away,” was the an swer, and they did, and in less than a month sold it at an advance of some thousands. Something now for these parts is a whiskey distillery, which".*i» doing a fair , business. Caldwell, Rum distiller, has such a reputation for pure liquor, that they are unable to fill tbeir orders. Over two thousand foreigners help make up the population of this city. Steve. Newspapers in Constantinople. A missionary of the American Board in Con stantinople writes; “The increase in the number of newspapers published here, and in one or two other prin cipal cities of Turkey, and the increase of (he number of persons who read them, are among the most noticeable signs of the times. In this city, five or even two years ago, it was a rare occurrence to see a newspaper in the hands of any one of the thousands of natives passing up and down the Bosphorus or Golden Horn in the steamers which hero takes the place of the street cars of Boston and New York. ‘Now it is almost as common a sight as in those cars. Newsboys throng our thoroughlares with their papers—in Turkish, French, in Greek, in Ar menian, &c. We have at least ten daily papers published at Constantinople. Their standard of journalism is Dot very high, and yet they serve to stir and direct the thoughts of men. Their influence upon public opinion is quite as decided as in England and America.” THE STATE. —The Gardiner Reporter says a plan is on foot in that city to erect a large manufactory for the construction of the Dirigo Sewing Ma chine. The inventor, Mr. J. S. McCurday, and a number of enterprising citizens, are endeav oring to form a company to engage in the en terprise, and with every prospect of success. —The Mail relates a curious case of theft. Some rogue, who evidently believes we art to have an early spring and is making prepara tions accordingly, stole a Waggon from Mr, J. C. Hutchinson, of Winslow on Thursday night. —Shingles are used as a substitute for mon ey at Presque Isle, and are considered “legal tender.” The Sunrise says that the best quality of shingles are selling for $4.50 per M. —The St. Croix river has opened earlier this year than it has done during the past thirty six years, except in 1842, when it opened on Feh. 5th, and in 1802, when it opened on the 7th. So says the Courier. —The St. Croix Courier says: “W. M. Buck Esq. C. E and party left last week for Houl ton to make a survey for the Houlton Branch Railway. Among the nominations rejected by the Senate on Saturday, was that of Arno Wis well to the collcctorship at Frenchman*® Bay in this State. —We see by the Ellsworth American that a store at the Falls Village, occupied by Emer son Robbins, was burned on Wednesday even ing of last week.
