Th, |irlu Mill In The Mouse. Washington, Feb. 28,180T. The vote in the House this afternoon, by which the tariff bill was killed, was one of the largest cast this sossion. It showed that 169 members were present. The galleries were crowded and great interest was manifested in the proceedings. The bill necessarily being in committee of the whole, a two-thirds vote to discharge the committee was required before auy action could be taken on the bill itself. In view of tlie lact that the time to elapse before the end of the session was w holly insufficient for the consideration of the bill »» extenso, * friends after consultation decided to susp*. action in committee and take the f* . ” that they could get and trust to " the next session for remedies and i P Accordingly as soon as the pin » behalf morning Mr. Morrill speaking in tbeir bclialt moved to discharge a committee of tlie whole w ith I View to u."k a committee ol conference. This was accepted as a test vote on the bill, and tlie roll was called with the House in much excitement. The vote stood—yeas l(g>, nays 64. There was great contusion, caused by tlie crowding of the members into the area in front of the clerk’s desk to watch the progress of the call, and Bedlam seemed to have broken loose when the speak er announced the failure ol the motion, as two-thirds liad not voted in the affirmative.— An analysis of the vote shows that the nega tive was composed of 30 republicans and 34 democrats, while the affirmative was composed of 1U0 republicans and & democrats. The nega tive vote was cast by the followidg States: ludiana, Pennsylvania, Illinois and New York, 9 each; Kentucky, 6; Tennessee and Missouri, 5 each; Ohio, Wisconsin and Maryland, 4 each; Iowa, 8; New Jersey, 2; Minnesota, Nevada and Delaware, 1 each. As soon as the vote was declared, twenty members shouted for recognition by the speaker. The floor was given to Mr. Stevens, who moved a resolution discharging the committee of the whole, agree ing to the” Senate bill as already with one further amendment, viz-, tojncllude shipping charges in the valuation price ofirn ports. A score of gc title me n wautod other amendments mane tor the benefit of spec, al interests, but Mr. Stevens refused to adopt auy except that of Mr. Harding of Illinois, which in effect about doubled the .Senate rates on agricultural products. This brought a direct issue on a tariff bill made up from the Senate bill and the last ways and means bill; but it still required a two-thiids vote, as the discharge of tlie commit tee was necessarily involved in the motion — The rc-sultavas even worse than before, the vote standing—yeas 102, nays 69. The whole thing being now lost, Mr. Morrill moved a joint reso ution, providing for a temporary in crease of 20 per cent, on all imports, except sugar, tea, coffee, salt, coal and railroad iron. The utmost excitement and confusion con stantly prevailed, aud the speaker, after much rapping on his desk, was finally obliged to ar rest all business for two or three minutes, and read the House a severe lecture. The vote on Mr. Morril’s proposition Bhowed still further demoralization, the result being—yt as 94, nays 71, and a two-thirds vote being necessary tor the suspension of the rules in order to get the i'oiut resolution before the House for action. t was now after four o’clock, and nearly an hour and a halt had been occupied with* these proceedings. nno enori more remained, and it was led by Mr. Rosseau in behalf of the wool interest, who moved a suspension of the rules that he might bring -in tho wool tariff bill passed by the House on the last day oi last session. This was lost by yeas 89, nays 64. Many of the Pennsylvanians voted in the negative out of spite. An adjournment for dinner was then carried. The New England vote on the first call of the roll, Mr. Hooper not voting because the motion was made iu behalf of the ways anil means committee, was as follows:—Yeas—Al ley, Ames, Baldwin, Banks, Baxter, Blaine, Boutweli, Brandagee, Dawes, Doming, Dixon, Elliot, Hubbard, Jenekes, Lynch, Morrill, Pat terson, Perham, Pike, Rice of Maine, Rollins, Warner, Washburn and Wbolbiidge: nays— none; absent—Marstou and Rice of Massachu setts. On the second proposition Messrs. Eliot and Hoot voted in the negative.—Dispatch to Boston Advertiser. Rauboad Enteuphihe.—Our Belfast and Mooseliead Lake railroad enterprise is making good progress. Meetings of tho committee wero liolden on Monday and Tuesday even ings, last week, at which a large number of our business men were present. On Monday evening a sub-committee consisting of S. L. Milliken, N. Abbott and A. G. Jewett, Esqs., were appointed to examine the old charter and report wh.»talterations are necessary; and, on Tuesday evening they made a report submit ting several amendments which were approv ed. A c inmitteo consisting of A. G. Jewett, Philo Chase, S. L. Milliken and Philo Hersey, Esns. and Capt. H. McGilvery were appointed to go to the legislature and secure the enact ment of the charter as amended. The coinnii tee left on Wednesday. We learn that they arc finding no opposition in the leg- 1 islature to the renewing of the charter with the proposed amendment. Wm. M. Rust was appointed by the committee to confer with the Maine Central Railroad Co., which holds its annual meeting at Watervillo, to-day, (Wed nesday,) in relation to that company's taking a lease of the road for a term of years, if built.— The committee voted to extend an invitation to Hon. John A. Poor to visit our city anil ad * uur citizens upon the proposed enter prise. . ..e matter of calling a railroad convention of all the towns interested in the proposed en terprise was discussed, but it was suggested that no definite action could he taken till after the action of the legislature in relation to the charter. An invitation will doubtless be is sued iu a few days. We would suggest to the towns interested, which may hold annual meetings before the call is issued, that they take the matter into consideration and ap point five delegates each, to attend the conven tion, and take such other action as they may deem proper. The roads, if built, will not only be of great benefit to those towns through which they pass, but to the towns immediate ly adjacent, and also our neighboriug seaport towns, and it is hoped they will all take mea sures to he represented in the convention.— Belfast Aye. Death of Mb. De Bow.—Mr. J. D. B. De Bow, the editor of De Bow's Review, died yes terday, after a brief illness, at Elisabeth, N. J. Mr. De Bow was born in Charleston in 18H0. He was long known as an able and industrious statistician, and au indefatigab’e supporter of the system of slave-labor, of which bo was one ofthe ablest and thorough-going defenders. He was a lawyer in early life, but became a journ alist by cbo.oe, aud iu 1815 established bis Re view iu New Orleans, and soon made it the or gan of the slavery interest. Iu 1848 he became professor of political economy and commercial statistics in the University of Lonisiana; in 1853 be became superintendent of the United States census. About this time lie compiled from his review three volumes under the title: “Indus trial Resources of the Southwest,” which re mains a very valuable work. He was a secessionist, as were most of the ad herents of slavery, and during the war held sonic important position under Jeff. Davis. Af ter the war ho determined to devote himself and journal to the interests and welfare of the Southern States under a free-labor system. He had long been in poor health. Mr. De Bow, though holding what we tliink mistaken views on political economy, was an able and a very industrious man, and left liis mark unmistaka bly upon the thought of that part of our coun try to whose material interests he devoted his time.—JV. Y. Keening Pott. Kingdoms and Dominions on Our Frontier. —The Brititish-American Confederation Bill, which has passed the House of Lords, aud now awaits the action of the Commons, is to be amended, if a Montreal telegram bo credi ble. so that the new Government shall not be called a ‘‘Kingdom,” but “Dominion!!” Well, th„t is all right in its way. We took the liberty, the other day, of saying that a “King doin’’ on this continent, without a “king” would be a queer sort of arrangment And it occurred to ub at the same time, That a Regal Court with an allowance of only ten-thousand -a-year would be rather a shabby affair. A “Dominion,” however, can probably be kept iu repair at less cost, and, therefore, wc await par ticulars before calling in questiou the propriety ofthe latter title. It lias occureil to some folks here that the colonists might have quietly formed a partne-ship under the styie the “United Proviucesof Canada.” But priv ate reports say that every delegate expects to comeback a Baronet—the title (letcending to future generations, it it sliquld go ever so low. That sort of thing is nst likely to last. Mean while, we quietly accept “Dominion” os the only thing between us and the North Pole.— New York Times. Willis as an Editor.—When Mr. Wilnswas m his prime,” as a writer, he was very precise and particular about his “coiiv ”— It must be set ’ exactly as he wrote it. Lot a compositor dare to alter as much as a punctu ation point, aud there would be trouble about it. It may be suggestive to young writers to know thai Mr. Willis was also very exact in the preparation ol liis manuscript, and would scarcely ever make the slightest mark or alter ation iritis proof. His ’copy" was prepared ao neatly, carefully, and legibly, that most compositors preferred it to “reprint” This is an additional confirmation ofthe rule that the best writers seldom or never alter their copy. It is stated that Mr. Willis was almost punc tilious in the matter of having bis articles ap pear just as he wrote them, word for word, let ter for letter, orthography and all. He carried this idea to such an extent tlmt; on one occa sion, when a printer took liberties with bis manuscript, he was extremely angry, and warned “the foreman” that such a thing must never occur again; said ho: . „ • yM0py followed; if I iusert a com ma in the middle of a word, do youplace it Journo? d ask <lUU!,t'°n«."—W. ¥. Home WHAI NE*T?-The Washington correspon dence of the New York Times .ays there is the very best reason for saying that tire country will be startled before the close of this week by a report irom the Judiciary Committee in dicating the progress they have made on the impeachment question, and asserting the ne cessity of pushing the investigation in the next Congress. T-e Committee lias already taken a very large amount of testimony, and has been in session both day and night. A Buuxib on Bones.—The engineers in charge of the new Blackfriars’ Bridge in Lon don have made a curious discovery. The foun dations of the old bridge were found to be es tablished upon immense heaps of bones, fifteen feet below the bed of the Thames. In the grav < 1 and near the clay were found bones of the ox, 10 s eep, the horse, and a few human re mains. i ng mg houses is under experiment8 in pjL i‘ steam-engine supplies pipes of ’ ,A with a constant stream ot vapor! applied to the stone or brick surface of Liu6 ings, nr, man directing the steam jet and the other using a brush.

J —Delaware has incorporated a State normal University. Om4Mo4 Cm»l *• The editor of the New York Evemhg Ga zette has lost his patience with the prosy and Interminable lectures to womankind with which newspapers and magazines so abound, and he gives vent to his disgust and impatience as follows: Since the first appearance of newspapers, magazines, and more serious publications, they have always abounded in advice to men how to choose a good wife, and in information con cerning what kind of women make good wives, with many variations upon the same theme; the undertone ever being the duty and deference of the gentler to the ruder and stronger sex. That is very well, no doubt, so iar us it goes; but we are unable to believe men so faultless or so entirely wise as not to require occasionally a little counsel themselves touching their fitness for matrimony. Women must have grown rather weary of being lectur ed for a century by men whose open disregard of the very things they are required to ob serve, the men claim as one of their natural rights. J udging by what one reads, women are naturally wicked and men immaculate, and if women do not believe so, it cannot be for want of being told so every day in the year. It is high time women had their say, and as they have so much more reason to complain, and sufl’er so much more from inharmonious and unfortunate marriage than men possibly can, their opinions on the subject would lie novel, if not valuable. We are aware that the lords of creation murmur whenever a daugh ter of Eve proclaims from the rostrum, as An na Ilickiuson does, or from the pages of a vol ume after the manner of Gail Hamilton. They I tio not want to be lectured. O, no, not they They claim a monopoly of the business them selves, and deem it presumptuous for their de pendent sisters to iutcriere in avocations for which women are manifestly uusuited. To hear both sides is the part of wisdom, and we hope women will continue to tell us what f/ieir views and feelings aud opinions are on matrimony, aud reveal their discontent and suffering, if they have such, in the connubial state. We do not think it will do any good, hut it may, in time, prevent men from droning out thoir gratuitous counsel to others, instead of taking a little of it to themsolves. Marriage is vastly more serious and solemn to women than men; aud if tile former can live without bestowing on all occasions excess of connubial counsel, surely they who wear tho bonds lightly, aud who rarely obey the condi tions the state naturally imposes, can employ their tongues and pens to a better and much less impertinent purpose. A Womens’ Ten Hoar Meeting in Lowell, A letter from Lowell to a Boston paper de scribee a novel meeting which took place in that city on Thursday. The women employed in the manufacturing establishments, imitat ing the example set them by their working brothers, organized a meeting for the discus sion of the question of reducing the hours of labor. It was originally intended, that the meeting should be officered and carried on ex clusively by themselves; but the latter part of the arrangement was not carried out. In the seating of the audience, however, the women occupied the most prominent places in the hall; and men, unless accompanied by fair companions, were assigned positiaus like those to which Audrew Johnson once declared the rebels should be confined in the work of re construction—that is, they were compelled to take back “seats.” Miss Caroline Frost, an operative in the Carpet Mills, and President of the women’s short time committee, was presid ing officer of the evening; and Miss Helen F. Kershaw, an employee of the same corpora tion, officiated as secretary. The assemblage was large, and a band of music was in attend ance. The speeches made and the resolutions adopted, all looked toward a modification of the existing regulations in regard to hours of labor. A Boos Incident.—A book collector at Lil le, France.recently purchased, at a stall, a vol ume at least a century old, but on examining his purchase, some of the leaves appeared to be wanting. A closer inspection, however, show ed that in three places the edges of the oppo site pages had been pasted together, and in each pocket thus formed a 100 fr. note was con cealed. The amateur, on inquiry, learned that the book had been purchased at the sale of a man recently deeeased, and the finder immedi ately restored the notes to his son, a carpenter' in straitened circumstances, who had just been obliged to sell a part of his furniture to pay for his father's funeral. TUB STATE. —A correspondent informs the Farmer that Mr. Ephraim Higgins of Btandish recently killed a hog, nine years old, that weighed when dressed 500 pounds worth, at tho market price, fifteen cents per pound, $75. She has produced one hundred and eighty-nine pigs, sold at an' average price of $3 each, amounting to $567, making the gross proceeds of flesh and pigs, $642. —The Pembroke Iron Company paid $17, 000 in January to 250 men and 50 boys. They made 500 tons puddled iron and finished the same into gas pipes, nail plate, hinge, iron, &c. They also cut 2,900 kegs of nails, con suming 300 tons of iron and 1000 tons of coal in this branch. These facts are stated by tbe Machias Union. —At East Machias recently, John Black burn's cow had her neck broken while fight ing with another cow. Bo says the Union. —The Democratic State Convention for the current year, has been fixed for Thursday, June 25th, in this city. — An extensive smuggling operation has been detected at Belfast. The Whig says “that on tbe 25th ult., special officers of the TJ. 8. Treasury made a descent upon two or three stores in Belfast in search of smuggled goods. They did not find a great quantity of goods, but secured evidence sufficient to warrant the attachment of the property of Hugh J. An derson, Jr., and 8. A. Howes, to the extent of $30.000—that being the estimated value of the goods smuggled. This action has been the elimination of three months' labor on the part of the detectives." —We learn from Mr.Binghamthat the officers had warrants to seise the books and papers of both of the above mentioned parties and that those of Mr. Howes were seised, which threw a flood of light upon the matter. They show the importation of three tons of cloves, two and a half tons of nutmegs, 1000 gallons of alcohol and a large quantity of drugs, that were never entered. The attention of the detectives was called to this case through the efforts of Col lector 8. K. Devereux of Castine, of schooner Wakulla at Belfast, having on board smuggled goods. The practice of the smugglers was to repack the smuggled goods in fish barrels and then send them per steamer Katahdin to Bos ton where they were sold. —An Episcopal Fair in Brunswick, a few evenings since, netted $130, to be used in re pairing the church. —The Paris Democrat says “it is refreshing to listen to the glad sounds which greet our oars from almost every direction, that the subjest of temperance is onoe more receiving the attention of the people. Old veterans and raw recruits together are rallying around the standard." —The Journal says A. C. Dennison & Co. have just commenced runuing their new pa per mill, making the fourth in Mechanic Falls It is devoted to making wrapping papers. —Ambrose Burk, 8tandish Burk his sonj and Charles G. Davis, have been undergoing preliminary examination the past week, at Paris, on a charge of causing the burning of the buildings of Irvin Robinson, in Sumner, on the 9th of November last. The Democrat says Mr. Bolster, County Attorney, appeared for the government; and Messrs. Andrews, Black and Virgin for tbe defense. —The Governor has appointed David F. Brown, of Bethel to be Trial Justice for the County of Oxford. —Bevet Brig. Gen. F. D. Bewail of Bath, Inspector General on Gen. Howard's staff, ar rived home from a tour of inspection in the South a few days since. The Times says he thinks the Military Government hill which has recently passed Congress, a very necessary measure; and, is anxious that it should become a law. Without some measure of this kind there is no adequate protection for the loyal men at the South. —Ibe Hath limes proposes to receive orders from this city for the removal of ready-made dwelling houses from that city, as tho cheapest way in which our citiacns can supply them selves. Sorry our lower Kennebec neighbors have a surplus of such articles for sale. —A leveo given by ladies of tho Freedmen's Aid Society in Bangor last week, netted about M50. —The Biddeford Journal is glad to learn that oDly orfic case of small pox in Kennebunkport has proved fatal. —Mr. Pillsbury, republican nominee for may or of Lewiston, is a native of Biddeford, who wont to Lewiston about thirteen years since. “The Biddeford Journal says the oldest in ubitant of York died recently from pneumo nia, aged about 91 yeavg.

The Republicans of Westbreok held a meet ing at the town house yesterday afternoon and passed the following resolve— Whereas, The Democratic party have repu diated the union of the parties in this town to which they agreed in a caucus held last Satur day and have to-day held another caucus and nominated a straight ticket, Therefore Resolved, That we are absolved from our former obligations and will nominate and elect a straight Republican ticket. The following nominations were then made: Mederator—David Torrey. Selectmen—George C. Codman, Daniel Dale and Wm. L. Pennell. Town Clerk and Treasurer—Walter E. Good rich. School Committee—E. H. Elwell. The Apocalypse.—No more grand or in structing a subject could possibly be selected to attract the attention of all than tho above mentioned book. We are furnished with a brief analysis of its arrangement to prepare our readers to understand it. The scenes embody all the startling visions described in the mysterious writings of St. John, and follow in the regular order in which they are written by him, commencing with St. John on the Isle of Patinos; where he was ban ished for preaching to the people—follows tho Introduction of the first series of visions rela ting to the Seven Golden Candlesticks ana of one who appeared like unto the son of man. The preparatory visious where the scenes are laid in Heaven The vision of God, and the elders and the living creatures, and the wor ship rendered to God. The opening of the sealed book, with its attending visions of the Red Horse, the Black Horae, the Pale Horse, and the reign of death. The Martyrs, and con sternation aud alarm, which follows, are de picted with great power and artistic skill. The Temple of God, Satan and the Great Red Dra gon, Satan cast out of Heaven, and the great d >y of his writh, with earthquake, darkening of the snn and moon, and the mountains fall ing upon the people, must indeed furnish scenes of grandeur and sublimity. The visions of the four angels standing on the four quar ters of the globe, the bottomless pit opened, the mighty angel standing one foot upon the land and one foot upon the sea, with the vision oi the beast with seven heads and ten horns, must be grand subjects for the scope of the ar tistic imagination. The series of vison relating to the pouring out of the seven vials followed by the scenes of carnage, the fall of Babylon, and the woman in purple and gold sitting on the beast, with the vision oi Satan chainod, concluding with the Day of Judgement, and vision of the New Je rusalem, and final abode of the righteous, fill up the most intering portion of this marvellous work, which most certainly presents a sublime series of incidents, which must prove satisfac tory and pleasing. The above in connection with the Miltonian Tableaux, will soon open in our city, and so at tractive an eutertaiumeut must meet with un animous approval, aud great success. Silver Weddikg.—On the evening of the anniversary of Washington’s birthday, the 25th anniversary of the marriage of Rev. O. P. Tuckerman and wife was celebrated at his res idence on South street. A large number of their friends, and members of the Preble street Chapel, of which he is Pastor, assembled at bis residence and presented him and his wile with a number of silver articles, among which were a cake basket, spoons, napkin rings, butter cooler, &c., &c. The presentation was made by Mr. E. A. Jordan, who made a few neat re marks, which were responded to by Mr. Tuck erman in a feeling and happy manner. Alter the presentation was over, and mutual congratulations had been exchanged, the par ies retired to the dining room, where a hand some oyster supper, which had been provided for by his friends, unknown to Mr. T., was par taken of with keen seat. Rev. Mr. Bolles’ Lectures.—A very ex cellent course of lectures is now being deliv ered by Rev. Mr. Bolles, at his church in Con gress Square, on Sunday evenings, to young people especially. We have had the pleasure to hear two or three of them, aud can heartily say that for practical wisdom and necessary and pertinent enforcement of valuable truths on many important social topics, the lectures are very valuable. Mr. B. is one of our most attractive pulpit orators, and it is a satisfac tion to hear him speak so treely without notes, and never lack for the right word in the right place. The subject of the lecture on to-morrow evening will be “The Young Man in Busi ness." ^ Railway Traffic.—Tho following are tho receipts of the Grand Trunk Railway for the week ending Feb. 23d, 1867: Passenger*,.$30,781 00 Express Freight, Mails and Sundries,. 5,250 00 Freight and live Stock,. 80,751 00 Total,......$116,782 00 Corresponding week last year,. 111,7i5 00 Increase,.$r>,067 oo JOSEPH HICKSON, Secretary and Treasurer Theatre.—Messrs.

See adver tisement. j Amatzuh Thbatr*iai.s.-‘- Not^jhitamding the storm last evening, the Dramatic Amateur* had a very large audience at their entertain ment for the benefit of the Portland Army and Navy Union Library. The parquette was filled with the beauty and elite of the city.— The first play was “The Weatheroock,” in which the characters were sustained by Misses Furbish and Cole, and Messrs. Fernald, Chase, G. Thomas, Neal and Emery. It was hand somely performed, and the audience showed their appreciation of the performance by re peated tokens of appiause. The afterpiece was “ The Widow’s Victim." Mrs. 8haw, new to the boards, Miss Furbish, Miss Cole, Mr. Chase, Mr. Carter and Mr. W. Thomas, sustaining the characters. It was an admirable performance throughout. Mr. Car ter as “Tritter,” was capital, iufusing life in his personation of the part, and so was Mr Thomas as Podge. Mr. Chase as “Jerry Clip ” was lively and animated, making the part just what it should be. Mrs. Shaw as “ Mrs. Rat tleton,” had a fine appreciation of the charac ter, and sustained it admirably, while Miss Cole appeared to great advantage in the char acter of “Mrs. Twitter.” ^iss Furbish in the character of “Jenny Chatterly,” elicited rounds of applause, so perfect was her personation of the chattering maid. In short, it was a fine performance throughout, and the audience seemed well pleased with it. municipal Efomiaaliaan, The re-noininations of Mayor Stevens and Municipal Judge Kingsbury by the delegates yesterday, will meet with the warmest appro bation oi the great body of the Union Repub lican party. The nominees have given satis faction in the performance ot the duties im posed upon them and it was expected they would receive nearly the unanimous support of the delegates. The people will ratify these nominations at the polls next Monday by handsome majorities. Matinee.—We are very glad to learn that in accordance with the wishes of a large portion of the audience who were present at Deering Hall last evening, the Dramatic Club have consented to repeat the entertainment. The performance will commence precisely at three o’elock this afternoon. Tickets to all parts ot the house 50 cents; children under 15 years of age half price. Let ail go and give them a bumper.

This is number two of Messrs. Ticknor & Fields’ beautiful “Diamond” edition of the novels of Dickens. Its illustrations, sixteen in number, are drawn by S. Eytiuge, Jr., and engraved under the superintendence of Mr. A. V. S. Anthony. They embrace most of the notabilities of the story, some of which are quite happily conceived. The “Cherub and the Lovely Woman,” Mr. George Sampson, Wegg and Venus, and Mrs. Boffin in the char acter of a “highflier at fashion" are among the best. This in in every way the neatest, the most elegant and the cheapest edition of the works of Dickens yet offered to the public, and we are not surprised to learn that the or ders for the first and second numbers have been largely in excess ot the publishers' ex pectations. The third number, to he issued in March, will contain “David Copperfield.” “Our Mutual Friend,” and “Pick wick” may be found at the bookstores of Davis Brothers, and of C. R.
