t hr M order »f ttrtlbf Boldkr* U B*Ulh flnrelina* We hare given heretofore a full aefiouut of the circumstances attending the murder of the three Maine Soldiers killed at Brown’* Ferry, South CaroUna, in October, 1855, of the Presi* dent’s commutation of the sentence passed up on their murderers, and of the miscreants by Judge TIall of Delaware. The Special Con gressional Committee appointed to investigate this atrocious case, has just reported tJir0'4', its chairman, Mr. Pike. We have already !* . lished Mr. Pike’s speech on the condition". South, constituting a sufficient read"1® ® testimony oi'Geuerals Schofield, tsn • cs, m i as, Baird and Wood, on this general subject. We subjoin the report of the committee upon the specific case to which their attention was directed. It confirms the representations which had been previously made, and runs as iollows: Corporal Corbitt and privates Emery Smith and Mason Brown, all of Company A, First Battery of Maine Veteran Volunteers, on the 8 h of October, 18ti.j, were stationed at a cross ing of the Savannah ltiver called Brown’s Fer ry, for the purpose of guarding filtcen bales of cotton, which prior to the time had been seised by the ofiicers of the United States Treasury Department. When seized it was placed in the temporary custody ot"W. S. Brown, owner of the terry, who lived within a few rods of the South CaroUna bank of the river. This prop erty, it la claimed, was the property ol Craw ford Keys, who had engaged one Stowers, who lived on me opposite side olthe river, to carry it to Savauuali. Stowers had made prepara tions to receive it, and had fixed upon Satur day. the 7lh day of October, as the time lor its removal. On Friday, the Uth, Stowers went to Brown and notified him that the cotton in question was about to be surreptitious y taken away,adding by way ofcaution, that he him self was not to be concerned in the act, and advised Brown to go to the military authori ties and get released lfom his responsibility.— Brown Accordingly intormed the military of the intended removal, and a guard oi three men were sent to the ferry on the evening of the same day. The trip to Savannah was there upon postponed indefinitely, for the reason as signed by Stowers that his steersman was sick. Ua ©uuuuy wuiuiug, uie uay oi me muraer, one Mr. Allred called at Stower’s house on tin Georgia side to accompany him to church.— But instead of doing so, at Stower’s request they crossed the ferry and visited Homand’s store on the South Carolina side, a few miles from the river. On their return they met Pe ter Keys, a son of one of the priseners whoso participation in the murder is not denied, and who lied a few days after the prepetration. Tins person was awaiting them on the Georgia side half a mile Irom Stower’s house. Craw ford Keyes lived with his sous, it may be stat ed, on the Georgia side, about twelve miles from Brown’s Ferry. Arriving at the lerry, he called across the river to the ferryman employ ed by Brown, a man named Howell, gave the false name of Jones, and ascribed a false rea son lor desiring to cross the ferry at so late an hour. On the ooat be kept behind his horse as as much as possible out of sight, and refused to come to the light to see that the change giv en him w as correct. He left the ferry, and something under an hour afterward returned with live men on foot, a.l of whom were rec ognized as they passed the lerry gate, by Brown and Howell. They went to the ferry, a short distance irom the houses of Brown and How ell, and an altercrtion took place. A voice was heard, identified as Stowers ordering the guard to throw down their arms. The guard remonstrated, and asserted that they were at the ferry under orders. The an swer was made, “God d—n you, we have come to throw you into the river.” Shots were then fired, a scuttle took place, and shortly after the party returned past the houses, three of the ni“.n on foot and three on horseback. As they passed Howell’s hous<, P^ter Keyes ordered Howell, who was standing outside, alarmed by tno noise, to go bacK into bis house, and the six then passed on in the direction whence they came. The time at which the assassin ation was committed was about midnight of the 8th o. October, the moon was about two houiS nigh, the night a light one, auu the air .perfectly still. The road led past Howell’s and Brown’s houses, within a very few rods of each. Brown lived somewhat nearer the ferry than Howell, and was in bed at the time, but saw tuo party irom his window. Howell was in his aouse at the door. They were out resi dents oi me district, and perfectly tamiliar with tlie faces and voices of their neighbors.— Stowers’ business ca.led him daily across the river to uio Carolina side, and Brown’s lerry v was the pi ice at which he Kept a boat, and at. wtueu ho daily crossed.' Howell swears that he recognized of the party, Crawford Keyes, Pe-cr Keyes, Ei*sha Byrorn, Francis G. Stow ers; the oixtii he did iaoi know. Brown, the owner of tAie terry, swears that as the party passed his house two of them weie walking to getuer si 1 o-by-side, and the rest were moving 111 a group Oenind; his attention was particu larly feu. to the two who led the party, and he fce.s not the slightest doubt that they were F. G. Stowers and Crawford, Keyes. The newsot the murder was cairied ihe next morning to the United States forces at Anderson, where, it may be stated, the Keyes family resided. A detachment came to search for the guard. The three soldiery were found *m the river, a rod or two from the shore. Each of them was shot through the head; two of them with wounds which must have caused their instant death, the third evidently having been drowned. The hair ol each was so burned as to show that the pistol had been held close to his head. Their horses, arms and equipments had been taken awu.y, and never have been traced since, with the exception of one Horse, imperfectly identi fieed, aau tuund three mouths afterw ard in the possession of one {Sargent, whom* busiuem* w«n the purchase sj»«i aair of horses, and who par ticularly attended to the purchase and sale of Government bruuded horses, for the purpose of ruunnig them out of the State and beyond the repack of i he military authorities. The Cotton was left at the ferry undisturbed. JNo special cause was assigned at the trial for this cold blooded murder. Tlie young men assassinated had been stationed at Anderson about two months, and the resolutions of a pub lic meeting heal at Audersou two days alter tho murder, testily to their good conduct while there. Their only offense seems to have been wearing the uniiorm of the Republic, and obeying the orders ol their superior offi cers. Of those committing the murder, the Keyes family seems to h ive .been one of the most prominent iu Audersou, and Stowers, a uiuh of sufficient consideration to have been at cue time a member of the Georgia Senate. This assa sination was committed while Gen. Gilmore was in charge at Charleston, and Gen. Sickles states that when he took com mand, G q. Gnmore called his attention to this casa as one ot great atrocity, and one winch toe interests of the service, in his opini ion, required to be thoroughly investigated. A null tar, commission was convened by Gen. Sickles, and proceeded to try those charged with the oiui'djr, who were all arrested except Perei Keyes and the person who was not rec ognizou by Bryan and Howell. A long and thorough examination of the witnesses was made, occupying some thirty dajs. The de fence was skilfully managed; an alibi was at tempted to be proved on the part of Stowers by negroes, and who testified the fact, hut sub sequently changed their testimony and swore they hail been trained by Stowers to make their previous statement*. It was attempted to shake the testimony of Howell and Brown in various ways, but alter a patient and dili gent comparison of statements, the counsel found the tacts as we have already detailed them. The ev dence is spread over many hun dred pages of record, and it amply sustains the conclusions at which the Court arrived.— The Commission found the two Keyes, Stow ers and Bryant guilty, and sentenced them to be hanged. The sentence was approved by Gen. Sickles, as to the elder Keyes and Stow ers, but on account of iheir age, and being un der tlie influence ot their associates, the sen tence was commuted, in the cases of the younger Keyes and Bryant, to imprisonment lor life. The case was immediately presented to tho President, and applications were made lor pardons or fur transfer to the military tri bunal . Letters from several leading men of the Smith, such as Alexander H. Stephens, Gov. Orr and H. V. Johnson, appear among tlie papers laid before tlie President, and, with others, we noticed a petition insisting upon it that tuG President’s avowed policy led the pe titioners to ask with confidence his interposi tion in behalf of the culprits. Hon. O. H Browning, now Secretary of the Interior, for a fee of $1,000, made an argument to the President in behalf of the persons, and argued that they be brought within the range oi a writ of habeas corjtus in a Northern court. Nurn rous petitions and letters urge the Pres ide ut to direct the prisoners, to respond to a writ of habeas cor[tU8% on the expectation taat tlie courts alter the decision in the Milli gan case, would declare the trial without au thority of law. These papers were all referred by tho President to the Judge-Advocate-Gen eral, who reviewed the ease at length and af firmed the decision of the military tribunal SubseqiKiitly a writ ol habeas corpus was in sued lrorn tli; United States District Court of South Carolina, by Judge Bryan, but General Sickles declined to respond. Au attachment ior contempt followed, but Geu. Sickles de clined to obey it, and bis conduct was approv ed by the Secretary of War on the 23d ot July. Subsequent to all the occurrences just recapit ulated the President ordered that the sentence to be banged be commuted iu all lour cases to imprisonment tor life at the Tortuga*. This order was immediately executed, but on the 13tn of July the President directed the prison ers to be transferred to Fort Delaware. The Secretary of War, iu bis testimouy, gives the reasons for this transfer. Considerable delay occurred .n the transfer to Fort Delaware, but "a 11 i" i .‘.S',uers did arrive there, Col. How ard, who was in command at the fort, was serv i 'a. 'V'1 ut habeas corpus from the Unit “,r “i District Court of Delaware, Judge D w?“ directed ‘>y ‘lie War y, ,Pt T, -to respond to the writ. A bear oners were discharged.UjRcHa" i““1 1-™ upon the part of the venerable ,1 ud^I? ar ? wt forth in his op.nioi, Ho claims to i,av tl , judicial knowledge thatthe rebellion wm sun pressed and peace restored in Jut,,. i u> ; further that the civ.} Courts of SM&jgJ were open lor the admimstratiou of justice « the time of the arrest and trial of thus.! murderers; but Get. Sickles states that at the time there were no civil Courts in South Caro lina that could have tried them; neither the United Status District or Circuit Court, or State Courts were opeu; steps were in progress to that end, hut they had not been consum mated. It is not within tile scope of this re port to review the legal grounds upon which the opinion is based. Its assumptions are still more offensive, if possible, than those of the Court in the Milligan case.

The Gubernatorial discus ions in New Hamp shire were resumed on Tuesday at Pittsfield, when General Harriman was present and spoke for one hour and a half with great pow er, eloquence and earnestness. The following is a brief abstract of his remarks: The Southern people think it is great injus tice for them to be denied, for the present, rep resentatation in Congress. The Democrats have the same opinion on this subject. Ten nessee accepted the Constitutional Amend ment, and was immediately allowed reprise - tation at Washington. If other southern es had fol owed the example of Tennesee thoy would have received similar The new reconstruction bill which has rec ut Jv uasst’d both Houses ot Congress Har rinrin considered a good act. The Democrats ought not to object to it, for Keverday .John son voted for it and in a speeoh ad vocated its passage. The North has no vindictive spirit toward the masses of the Southern people We only ask that the guilty leaders of the re bellion have justice meted out to them. By the laws of every civilized nation they have forfeited their lives. During the great public peril of the war the Democratic party was false to its.-lf and false to the country. In April, 1861, the Manchester Union Democrat, which leads, or represents the Democratic party in New Hampshire as much if not more than any other opoosition sheet in this State, said that the Black Republican war would disgracefully fail, and that not one of the 33. 000 New Hampshire Democrats would support it. The Stuteg and Onion, at Portsmouth, then said tUat no Democrat could suppor the war without ignoring and reprdiating the creed of his party. The Democracy pronounced the war a fail ure, were silent over our victories, affirmed that the South were fighting for their rights, and said they would as soon enlist under Jeff. Davis as anybody. The Democrats were wrong. Some of them now own up that they were wrong, but the large majority of them . have concluded to grin and hear it, (Restrained applause.) There are now no very serious na tional dangers—none which bear any compari son to those which existed during the war. My opponent speaks of renegades from party, but they are not quite so bad as renegades from principle. lii closing Gen. Harrlman stated tnat one oi the most hopeful signs ef the times was the fact that the young men generally were allying themselves with the Republican party of pro gress—a party which saved the country and which pelievcs in equal rights foi all men. Mr. Sinclair had one-half hour in which to dose the debate. He said substantially: “The scheme of the radical party is to dis franchise the whole white population of the South, and to place the political dower and destiny of tiat section of the Union in the bauds of a servile and ignorant class of blacks —repeating the histories >i Hayti and Jamaica. Such an outrage upon the Southern people, whose anceBsors fought shoulder to shoulder with our ancestors in the revolution, Mr. Sin clair believed to be without a parallel in the records of civilized nations.” The discussion was a success for the Union nominee, and the Republicans were elated at the result. The popular current of feeling is unmistakably turning in favor oi Gen. Harri raan, who is gaining votes wherever he speaks, whether alone or in the joint debates. Mnrrait visited by his Mister. A correspondent of the New York Times, writing from Washington on the 22d, gives the following account of a scene in Surratt's cell: Yesterday afternoon John H. Surratt was visited at the jail by his sister Anna, who was accompanied by Mr. J. fl. Bradley, Jr., one of his counsel. The guards thinking it best to prepare the prisoner lor the visit, one of them intormed him that his sister would be up in a moment, when he exclaimed ‘'Great God,” and hurst into tears. In a few moments the sister was shown to the cell, when they met tor the first time since the assassination, and embraced each other, both giving way to tears. They finally became mote composed, and en gaged in conversation, during which be ex pressed himself as prepared for the worst. The sister spoke cbeeriugiy t'> him, telling him to keep a stout heart. The interview, during which they spoke mostly of domestic affairs, lasted abonthall an hour; and alter again em bracing each other, the sister withdrew, both being much affected. The sister paid him an other visit this morning, and spent a little time in his cell, in company with Mr. Bradley, Sr. The prisoner walks the corridor during most of the day, and appears quite contented. He is non-communicative as to anything in relation to the charges against him,but speaks sometimes of his voyage in the Swatara. He says that be was treated by the ofl icers of the Swatara as well as he could have expected; that he was confined in a room adjoining the Captain's cabin, which was very small, and sometimes was allowed to walk ou deck io get exercise, but was not allowed to bold aoy con versation with the officers or crew, other than as to his personal wants. He states that at times, when the ship was in a storm, they took the irons off him to prevent him from getting injured, and says that at one time there was danger ol tbc aulp ^c>ing down. \\ hen ho ar rived at the jail liis irons were taken oil', it not being usual to keep prisoners ironed unless they are ot a refractory character. It was re ported yesterday that the Judiciary Commitr tee would examine Surratt to-day upon the. charge against Jell'. Davis of complicity with the asoassiuatiou; hut the Committee have not done so, nor is it likely that they will do so until it is knowu what will be the proceed ings against Surratt himself. Letter from the National Capital. [CORRESPONDENCE OF THE PRESS.] Washington, Feb. 26,1867. WAR CLAIMS OF MAINE. Ex-Gov. Cony is in town engaged in arguing those legal points involved in the claim of Maine against the United States before the Second Comptroller and Secretary of War. An amount has alerady been allowed which when paid will be sufficient to pay the direct tax of August 5th 1861, which is $420,826, and leave the State $150,000 in money. It will be paid as soon as the final adjudication is made, which will be in the course of some weeks.— This leaves a 1‘alance of $261,000 still to bo audited. The supplementary account which is now being prepared by J. H. Manley, U. S. Commissioner for the District of Maine, will Siam be presented, this amounts to $130,000. ON DITB. The bankrupt bill is not likely to pass; a strong lobby of New York merchants is here working against it. There is no probability of saving the tariff bill either as originally passed, or as sent from the Senate. Gov. Hamilton, of Texas, the Southern Re publican leader, is a candidate for Postmaster ot the House, with a strong pTobabilty of oiec tion. Brevet Brig. Gen. Lippincott, of 111., is to be run for Doorkeeper in opposition to the pres ent incumbent. The bill regulating removals from office will it is believed, become a law by the President’s failure to sign or return within the appointed time. Spectator. Governor Swan and ini Senatorship.— The telegraph yesterday gave a rumor to the effect that Gov. Swan would not resign, but that he would decline the United States Sena torship to which he was recently elected. The Boston Journal’s special dispatch says in rela tion to the matter: “Should he resign his Governorship and present his credentials as Senator, Lieutenant Governor Cox would suc ceed him. In this case should the Senate Ju diciary Committee delay reporting on Govern or Swan’s credentials until alter the adjourn ment of the Maryland Legislature.and then re port that he is not entitled to his seat on ac count of the corruption employed in securing his election, it would become the duty of act ing Governor Cox to appoint a Senator, pro tempore, and he would doubtless appoint his iriend Mr. Creswell, whose present term as Senator will expire on Monday next. This as pect of affairs makes it questionable to Govern or Swann whether to hold on to his present po sition or to resign and run his chances of be coming a Senator.” Jenkins on Subbatt. A Washingto n cor respondent who devotes four columns to Sur ratt, thus vaguely and hightalutinly describes his last moments of freedom: In the beautiful ci ty of Naples, Surratt went boldly and declared himself to the British Con sul. The perfidious sympathy of the attaches of the country that wishes us no sucecss gave him relief and despatched him to Malta. Here he would probably have enlisted as a British soldier, the natural position for an American assassin. The lightning, as of heaven oursu ing, followed him through the bottoms of the sea. British fear and gull could not shelter him, but would not give biril up. So he con tinued to Alexandria, and when the wails and battlements broke into view, the tall shaft of Pompey’s Pillar, Cleopatra’s beautiful necdh , the camels and dragomans, and oriental sails, the far pyramids, much that Abraham and Jo ■etthliad looked upon, justice came out to take 0Tprmur^erer ut I**8*, and the long hunt was PErsoNAL^—We notice from the Oregon papers^ that Hon. A. A. Skinner, of Eugene C tj, has been appointed one of the Supreme Judges of that State. Judge Skinner is a na of New York State, but his wife is a co*ln F*sq y’ Bhter 0f the Royal Liu The Oregon paper from which we gather the above information says “the Judge is well known aud universally esteemed throughout the State as a competent lawyer, a true patriot and a man of sterling integrity, both as a pri vate citizen and a public officer; and wo feel warranted in saying that the Governor could not have made a more judicious selection, or one that would have given better general sat isfaction.” iottiLASto Am* rtcrs JTi\ Hew Advertisement* Td-®«T SPECIAL NOTICE COLUMN.

Greely Academy.—The work of building the Greely Academy in the town of Cumber land, according to the bequest made to that, big native town, by the late Hon. Eliphalet Greely, of this city, has began. The plans were drawn by George Harding, Esq., Architect. The building will be of brick, two stories high, with pilasters and a belt between the stories. The dimensions on the ground are 38 by 58 feet, with ornamental porch in front aud sur mounted by a neat tower, belfry and vane.— The lower story contains separate clothes rooms for boys and girls, a library and philosophical room, and a school room 331-2 by 36 feet. In the second story is a hall 36 by 44 feet, with an ante-room and a music room adjoiuiug. The sum of $6000 was donated by Captain Greely for the erection of the building. It will cost probably $1000 more than that sum. Tile remainder of the legacy, something like $20,000, is devoted to the support of the institu tion, the interest only to be used. Westbrook Seminary.—The spring term of the Westbrook Seminary . commenced on Wednesday of the present week, under very favorable auspices. Ilev. Mr. McCollister, who has had charge of the institution for the past two years or more, has just returned from a tour in Europe with his physical powers invig orated, and his mind stored with valuable in formation. This institution, which has been regularly increasing in popularity, will receive a new impetus from the increased advantages of its principal. P. Y. M. C. A. Lectures.—The tenth lecture of this course will be given this evening, at State Street Church,by Bev. A. A. Willetts, of New York. The subject is the attractive one of “The Model Wife,” which, with the high rep utation of the speaker, will doubtless draw a fall house. Evening tickets maybe obtained at the door and at the places mentioned in tbe advertisement Arrival of the Peru vian.—The steamship Peruvian, Capt. Ballantine, from Liverpool Pith and Londonderry 14th, arrived at this port about one o’clock yesterday morning, bringing 28 cabin aud 103 steerage passengers and a largo cargo. We are indebted to tho Purser of the steam er for files of foreign papers Detention of Trains.—A freight train got off the track yesterday cn the Grand Trunk, between Yarmouth and Pownal, detaining the Montreal aud Maine Central passenger and mail trains about one hour and a half, so that they failed to connect with the af ternoon train for Boston. Weixcome’s Liver Regulator is a sure aud safe cure for liver complaints. There is no other known remedy equal to it; thousands have shared its benefits, and gladly recommend it to others. jan5 lawtf Liquor Seizures.—Yesterday the Deputy Marshals seized small quantities of liquor in the shops kept by William Finch, on Com mercial street, and Edward K. Brooks, on Fed eral street. The morning prayer meetings at the vestry of Free Street Church will be continued every morning this week at eight o’clock, for three fourths of an hour, Library Lefiurts, The fifth lecture of the catirse before the Mercantile Library Associatitia, was delivered last evening by the Rev. Dr. Chapin. The au dience, though small compared with those which have been accustomed to greet this ad mired speaker on former occasions, was the largest which has been cftlled out by any lec turer this season. The disadvantages and in conveniences consequent upon the loss of the noble audience room of the City Hall have told unfavorably upon all the lectures of the year. The theme of the lectvre last night was “The Roll ot Honor.” Nothing, the speaker said, was more fallacious than contempt for abstrac tions. They control the machinery of the world. The material forces, money, labor, &c., are the mere slaves of unseen realities. To this class of mighty but intangible forces be longs the thing which we call honor. To anal yze and define this thing, to describe the vari ous kinds and types of honor was the object of the lecture. The lecturer thought that very few indeed of human beings were wholly without some semblance of this sentiment. With many, iu deed, it was an utterly false and ignoble stand ard of honor which influenced them, but even that, he thought, was better titan none. To find men absolutely without any controlling influences of this kind, you must sound a depth of degradation rarely reached; you must go down below even the moral zero of a bounty jumper or a common councilman. No man despises honor but him who despairs of it, and that despair supposes the wreck of every noble possibility. I he first element of a true honor he found to be loyalty; the second, service; the third, _ sacrifice. The one thing utterly and eternally incompatible with it was selfishness. The sel fish man—mathematically classified by the speaker among the mean quantities and vulgar fractions—was incapable of honor. Those whose names are written in the Itoll of Honor he divided into four classes, the achievers, the benefactors, the martyrs and the faithtul. Per haps the happiest and most eloquont portion of the lecture was that in which he spoke of the innumerable throng of patriot martyrs who in our own time have laid down their lives for the nation’s life, and the silent, patient train of faithful ones who without praise or honor have worked and waited in humility and in secret^ the common soldiers, tho humble women, who brought their little all of effort and influence and laid it upon the altar of their country. Tlie corn might grow strong on the Western prairies, the magnolia blossom sweet on the Southern plains, but nothing half so sweet and strong had ever sprung from the soil of our beloved land as the influence and inspira tion that rises, aud will continue to riso from the precious dust of the heroes it has lately gathered into its bosom. To attempt to give the reader any adequate idea of one of Dr. Chapin’s lectures by other than a verbatim report would be nearly futile. As well might one think to catch and paiut the shifting, brilliant coruscations of the northern lights. His manner is so condensed, so rapid, so epigrammatic, that even in listen ing it is often difficult to keep pace with his fervid eloquence, and any effort to describe it must fail. To say that the lecture last night was one of the best which he has ever given is to characterize it in sufficiently high terms. It was full of epigrammatic sentences aud pas sages of noble rhetoric, and poetic sentiment; it breathed the spirit of broad humanity and of elevated thought for which its author is eminent, and its tendency was inevitable to lift the minds of all who heard it to a purer and clearer atmosphere than that which we ordinarily inhabit. It was listened to with the closest attention, and received with sincere applause. New Boot and Shoe Store.—The attention of the reader is invited to the advertisement of W. C. Montgomery, who has opened a boot and shoe store in the new building No. 4 Casco street, a few steps from Congress street. The goods that he advertises at such low prices are no myths, but are substantial articles, as may be seen by calling at his store. His assortment is a large one, composed of fresh goods, manufactur edof the best materials and by workmen wbo understand their business. A look at his stock will satisfy any one as to the quality, and the prices named are so low that purchases must follow an examination. It is his intention to keep the establishment supplied with all the productions of the best manufacturers, while the prices fixed for them cannot fail to satisfy purchasers.

Entertainment in Bath.—Tuesday even ing wc epjoyed a couple of hours of rational pleasure, while in Bath, at tbe Levee by the TJniversalist Sabbath School of that city,'giv en in Columbian Hall. The entertainment op ened with a tableaux—morning welcomed by the stars—which was one of the finest we ever saw. There were other tableaux during tho evening, some of them of surpassing beauty.— Several charades were very pleasing, anu elic ited the most enthusiastic applause. The most notable feature of the evening, however, was a cantata participated in by a large company' of young ladies and young gentlemen, entitled tho Closing of the Rebellion. This piece was very elaborately got up, the music and recita tions were very fine and appropriate, and the closing scene being a tableaux of the most en chanting character. The cantata was w ritten by the pastor, Rev. L. J. Fletcher, and its preparation must have imposed upon him a vast deal of patient labor. * Paper “CRiMPLiNE.”-\ve have seen aspecij men of another new invention in the way of ornamental paper, just patented by the "Fur long Paper Pantalet Co." of Mechanio Falls* It is a very skillful imitation ol the article call ed “crimpline,” so much used for frills and edgings on the clothing of ladies and children. It is very strong and firm, will not lray upon the edges, and retains its crimp perfectly. It may be used with very tasteful effect in the making of gentlemen’s shirt-fronts. The uses to which paper is put aro now so many and various, that no one can tell where Invention iu this direction is to stop. It would not surprise us if the use of woven fabrics were yet to be superceded altogether, and people find themselves clad ontirely in the product of the papeT-mills. Geoboe the Third and his Speixino B°ok.—The correspondence of King George the Thi-d with Lord North has just been pub

It may please the Ameri cans to be informed that their obstinate and bigoted enemy did not know how to spell, and that some of his errors are as amusin'* as those | of Thackeray’s Mr. Yellowplush. In one case he speaks of an offence as of “the blackest die" Afterwards he announces that “the dye is cast.” Other specimens of his spelling are these: toutch, addopt, aleviate, shaddow and cir rounds.

Recent Publication*. Thk Last Warning Cry: With Reasons for The Hope that is in me. By the Rev. John Camming, D. I)., Author' of “The Great Tribulation, ” “ The Great Preparation, ” “The Great Consummation,” etc. New York: G. W. Carleton & Co. The general tenor of Dr. Cumming’s works is well known. He is the chief apostle in our (lay of those who believe in the near approach of the end of the world. The present volume, he tells us, exhausts all he has to say on the subject of prophecy, and he adds that he still adheres to his previously stated conviction that “the last apocalyptic and historic vial commenced its action in 1848, and that its effects have been manifested in those success ive awful phenomena which are unfolded in detail in our Lord’s prophecy on the Mount, and are now registered in the impartial chap ters and archives of history.” Dr. Cumming very frankly admits that in the matter of “how soon after 18(>7 the Redeemer will return and take the kingdom and reign over all the earth,”he is not prepared definitely to say; and we do not suppose he is, but he feels sure that after that date it is an event to be moment arily expected, and he remarks that “as the great transformation draws nearer the groans of creation rise louder, and man feels less se cure anchorage ground on the earth.” Such of our readers as care to trace out for them selves the process of reasoning by which he arrives at his conclusions, will find the book at Bailey & Noyes. A Rosary for Lbnt; or Devotional Read ings, Original and Compiled. By the Au thor of “Rutledge.” New York: G. AV. Carleton & Co. This is, as its name imports, a collection of short readings of a thoughtful and devo tional character, intended to serve as a pleas ant and profitable companion to those who are accustomed to seek such aids to religious con templation during the season of Lent. It con tains little that is| original, but the selections from such writers as Bishops Ken, Tay lor, Heber, Mant and Hobart, as Her bert, Tillotson, Fuller and St. Francis de Sales, as Thomas a-Kempis, Bacon, Savon arola, and many others, old and new, will commend it to the favor of all to whom a book of this kind is an aid and a pleasure. The ex ternal appearance of the book is attractive, the rich, plain binding and the clearly printed pages with broad rubricated margins being at once elegant and appropriate. For sale by Bailey & Noyes. The Life of Jesus, According to His Orig inal Biographers. With Notes. By Ed mund Kirlce, author of “Among the Pines,” etc. Boston: Lee & Shepard. Th° compiler of this little book states in his preface that it bas grown out 01 an attempt made some years ago to prepare for his own private perusal a more connected view of the life of Christ than can be gained by a separate reading of the four Evangelists. For this pur pose he had made a monotessarou of the four Gospels,—arranging them so as to relate the same event only once, but to include tlie teach ings and all the historical circumstances in one narrative. Out cf this lieginning he has, by emendations and additions, brought the work to its present form, and offers it to the public in the belief that the text being stripped ot the antiquated phraseology, and illustrated by such brief notes as are needed to explain its local and historical allusions, it may be iound useful to such as wish for a connected history of the life and teachings of Jesus. It is simply and clearly written, and we commend it to all students of biblical history as likely to be of much service in aiding them to arrange and harmonize the often disconnected impres sions derived from the perusal of the four Gos pels.

B y the Abbe Gnettoe, JX D., author of “A His tory of the GalUcau Church," York, Carleton, Publisher. The Abbe Guettee is one of the most able, earnest and vigorous writers which the French Catholic church of the present time has pro duced. Bred under its influences, in lull sym pathy and affiliation with it, be would doubt less have remained among its strongest sup porters but for the narrowness and injustice with which it thought proper to treat him.— But becoming alarmed at the independent and fearless character ot his works it commenced toward him a course of petty injustice and per secutiou designed to repress his investigations and stifle his utterances. As might have been expected it succeeded only in quar reling him out of its own body. He passed over into the bosom of the Greek Church, and the ecclesi astical powers ot Rome unable to silence him, have been compelled to content themselves with putting his works into the list of those forbidden by the Index Expurgatorius. This is, if we mistake not, the first of his works yet offered to the American public. It has been very carefully translated, and is pre faced by a very interesting biographical sketch oi the author and an introduction by Bishop Coxe of New York. It is a valuable addition to our sources of information in relation to ec clesiastical history. For sale by Bailey & Noyes.
