At the commencement of the present year the Duily Press was enlarged to its present size; this change involved an additional amount of labor in the editorial department, and its readers will be pleased to learn that ar rangements have been made with John T. Gil man, Esq., former editor and joint publisher of the Press, to resume his former editorial con nection with the paper. ID. Gilman is too well known to the people of this State to re quire any formal introduction to the readers of t e Press. This addition to the editorial corps will in volve no other change than a division of labor, as all the other editors will still retain their connection with the paper. As the commercial and financial affairs of the nation have assumed a degree of import ance not hitherto fully recognized, and as the growth and prosperity of the city and State are largely dependent upon the development of its commercial resources, it is but proper that they shall occupy a prominent position in these columns, and thus make the Press a commer cial as well as a political paper. This depart ment will be under the special charge of H. W. Richardson, Esq., who has had general charge of the editorial department of the Press the past year. By this arrangement the proprietor confi dently expects to make the Press still more in teresting and valuable to its readers, and with equal confidence relies upon the public for a _corresponding increase in its circulation. -*T. A , Jrtaipitt. JjwyrtBtpf. The Election To-day. The election to come off to-day in onr city, though mainly of local importance, cannot be entirely devoid, of interest to the people of the State generally. It is due to the faithful offi cers who have served through the trying events of the past year and are now candidates for re election, that they should receive an endorse ment so emphatic that they may be able to en ter upon the duties of the new municipal year with a consciousness that the people will sus tain them in all efforts honestly put forth fer the good of the city. It iB also a duty we owe to the cause now struggling for firm foothold against the machi n itions of false friends and open enemies, who would cheat the loyal people of the nation of the legitimate fruits of their recent sacrifices, that by our votes to-day wa record an emphat ic verdict against treason and treachery and in favor of the true men who have battled for the right in the halls of legislation. Let Portland roll up her overwhelming majority on the side of exact justice, of equal rights, of manhood ir respective of race or color, and a knowledge of the fact will cause a thrill of satisfaction throughout the State, while it will produce an electric effect in New Hampshire and Connect icut, where hotly contested elections are soon to come off. Let not the hopes of those whose eyes are turned towards us be disapnointed, but by one united effort for the Eight let all such be encouraged in the same direction till the enemies of the purest and most perfect democracy shall be shamed into silence, or be come wedded to a cause piore worthy of their best efforts. Financial TrouNIe in Boston.—There was great excitement in Boston on Saturday, occa sioned by certain financial transactions, in which the Cashier of the State Bank seems to have been mixed up. It was announced on Friday afternoon that the broker and banking firm of Mellon, Ward & Co. had suspend! d and as they had operated largely in coppei stocks the effect on the market was felt Satur day, especially in Copper Falls, which sold on Friday at 74 and Saturday declined to 29. On Saturday it was ascertained that this fail ure had brought to light irregularities which implicated a large number of persons and in volved several of the banks in heavy losses. It was stated on the street that Mr. Julius F. Hart well, Cashier of the Sub-Treasury, obtained on certain gold certificates a large amount of money, which he deposited in the Merchants' Bank. He subsequently withdrew this amount, which is stated to reach over five hundred thou sand dollars, by depositing a check certified by Charles H. Smith, Cashier of the State Bank. Saturday the check held by the Merchai ts’ Bank was presented to the State Bank, when it was refused payment on the ground that no entry of the transaction appeared on the books. The Merchants' Bank still hold the check and the question of responsibility will be settled hereafter. Mr. Smith resigned his position and his resignation was accepted. It is stated that the cash account of the Sub Treasury is correct, and it is rumored that the gold checks which were made the basis of the transaction in the first place were either un cancelled checks which had been paid or were fraudulently used. Mr. Julius F. Hartwell it is reported, has been relieved at the Sub-Trea sury. Mr. Carter, of the firm of Mellon, Ward & Co., is a director of the Newton Bank, which is said to be a sufferer, but to what amount iB not known. The effect on State street of this startling expose was very marked. Many rumors were current regarding the losses of other banks, hut they are of very inconsiderable amounts. It has not been ascertained what became of the gold checks, but as the cash at the Sub Treasury is right, it is to be presumed they are 1 1 y innocent parties who have advanced money, accepting them as security. ™hen the check of Mellen, Ward & Co. was first offered at the Merchants’ Bank £«»*, but Mr. Smith, Cashier of Uie State Bank subsequently went into the Merchants Bank and there certified it, takimr the securities. These were carried to the Sub Treasury, and as it was late, Mr. Smith was in formed that a certificate of deposit would be sent to the State Bank in the morning. On making a demand for it, Mr. Smith was inform ed that there was nothing in the Sub Treasury to the credit of the Bank. The Second National Bank (Granite) has one of tlie checks to the amount of 8175,000. It is reported that Mr. Carter has been ar rested, and it is also stated that the loss of the First National Bank of Newton is so heavy that it will be obliged to windup. The bill 10 ' erB under the National Banking system are secured. -The Hartford Press, referring to the recent election in Georgetown, nays • _ have voted, and the District of Columbian stands. The Potomac river still runs T, White House was not shaken by an earth quake, and the Goddess of Liberty on the dome of the Capitol is still serene.” Well dies the Press remark, “How simple a thing is justice How quietlv the affairs of the world settle themselves if men only have the courage to do right" TheVm* k*r4»V trim. the trial of Charles A. Edgerly, for the murder of Charles F. Spear, on the 6th of October, was concluded Friday night. We re ceived °n Saturday a slip from Mr. Hanscom's printing-office, in Biddeford, containing the indictment and evidence complete, with the results. The case is exceedingly interesting, as an illustration of the working of the law ad mitting the testimony of the accused. The circumstantial evidence in this case, it is well known, was very strongly against Edgerly and his companions Wilkinson and Lewis It was proved that these three left Biddeford with Spear at about 9 in the evening, on tbo way across the covered bridge to Saco; that Spear was somewhat intoxicated at the time; that both Wilkinson and Edgerly said, either in jest or in earnest, "Let us go down and go through him for his money”; that blows were heard at the Saco'end of the bridge^ where Spear was found about half-past 9, bruised and senseless; and that his death was the consequence of these contusions. On this evidence Wilkinson was convicted on the 18th ult. of murder in the second degree. At the trial last week Edgerly was put upon the stand We copy liis evidence from the report already mentioned; Okas. A Ldgerly, sworn. Age 17. Did not know Charles F. Spear. Saw a man called by that name Oct. Gth, last. Saw him first on Laconia street, at about 81-2 or 1-4 9 o'clock. There were many there. He was intoxicated, He &ndGoogiii9 were quarreling after he went out. lie went out-first. 1 went out Mtor 3 or 4 minutes with 3 or four persons. Saw him at the corner of Laconia and Main streets. Quarrelled again.—Wilkinson did as before stated. Googins got away from Wilkin son and went down to the corner opposite Foss street. Talked again, and Googins told him he’d better go home. Googins went away. Spears went to wagon. £ould’ut hear what was said. Kinnison came along—went down street with him. Wilkinson wanted Lewis and me to go round that way with him. I started towards Saoo with Googins, Lewis and vVilkinsou. Met Spears near Linery house, Kinison had him and was walking along with him. Spear said if he could get any body to go home with him. Wilkiuson said he was going; Kinison asked him to take man—Wil kinson said he would. He took hold of his arm and Lewis took hold of his other. A lit tle past store wanted to cross road and get something to drink; Wilkinson said no, had enough. \Vilkinson asked Lewis to take his money and give Police Officer till morning so he could not drink. Lewis said did not have money because did not pay for drink. He reeled up against the fence and I took hold of his arm. About midway of blidge, he wanted to fight—and would not go; so Wilkinson took him by the shoulder and tried to push him along, He fell back against the railing and his hat went over into the water. Wilkinson said help to get him onto the other side of the bridge. Lewis dragged him to the last lamp post and then let him alone and Wilkinson dragged him the rest of the way alone. Wilkin son was going to leave him at the end of bridge. He attempted to get up and fell down. Wil kinson said too bad to leave him there, let’s get him across the road. Some distance from the bridge 10 or 12 feet, we dragged him. I was standing on the sidewalk two or three feet in front of him. He fell down twice, when I went to pick him up he kicked at me. Wil kinson asked why I didn’t kick him back. I said he has used me well and I will use him well. He fell a second time on to the curbstone He laid on the curb-stone as he fell. He was standing in the gutter. Pretty dark that night Could not see that he had hurt himself much by wounds or bruises. Wilkinsou asked me and Lewis to carry him across the road. Spear was lying on his face then. I helped him onto the grass. Wilkinson said it was as tar as he promised to take him. Wilkinson said we’ll take him over there to let him sober ofi. There was a wide piece of ground there between the fence and road. Wilkinson want ed me to go back; told him I would not. I did not offer any violence to the man that evening. Did not kick or strike him. Wilkinson walk ed ahead of us as we went over dragging Spear. Don’t remember anything about Wilkinson’s saying “Let’s go through him.” &c. Don’t re member I said anything to Joseph Young about that. Hear such expressions as “go through,” &c. often. Fell in with Lewis oppo site the gate. Wilkinson come up alter I’d gone a few steps. We went up to the Express office and separated. Lewis and I went home. Live on Elm Street. Lewis lived on Bradbury Street. In going home Lewis would go past my home. Keached home at 91-2. Did not see Spears have any money that night. Did not see Spears to know him before that night. Did not search him to see if he had money. Heard he was dead about 12 Sunday M. Learned it from Mr. Kinnison and Durgin. They came to my house. Durgin asked where I was Saturday night? If I’d been to the Covered Bridge? I answered yes. If I’d seen a drunken man there? I said I did. WKkEUTaSdl'wTs*^ kiSbife., ed get the man over to Saco. Told him I left the man on the other (Saco) side of the bridge. Slid he’d have to hold me for examination. I went away with him. I had been to meeting (Mr. Tenney’s) before Mr. Durgin came. Had been acquainted with Wilkinson two or three months before this. Met him first, I think, at Crystal Arcade with Frank Hemlri, Googin and Lewis, I think—not certain. I stooa in me guuer me second time ne ieii uown. 1 was in the gutter. That was the time I under took to help him up. The first time I was on the sidewalk two or three feet from Spears.— There were women who passed us just as we were coming through the bridge—just as we were passing the lastgasliglit. Wilkinson and Lewis had got hold of his arms. Spears weigh ed about 150 or 160 pounds. One hold of nis wrist, the other ol his elbow, just above each A boy passed when near the curb stone, I think. Spears asked for his hat two or three times while we were going through the bridge. Remember of passing a man between Jelle son’s store and bridge, Oct. 6th, evening. Wil kinson and I had hold ot Spears at that time. Spears broke away from me and said he want ed to get hold of this man. When I let go he staggered up against the fence. Wilkinson had hold of the outside. Passed him just thi side of store, I think. I did not speak of go ing through Spears for his money. Wilkinson said so in fun, a little alter we left Kinison.— Have heard the expression “go through,” &c., 2 or 11-2 years, I think. Cnosa Ex’n. I did not drink in Wilde’s shon that evening—neither Wilkinson nor Lewis drank whenl was there. Spears drank once—did not see him pay. On corner of street Hendri, Wilkinson, Spears and Googins. Spears and Googins walked down street; 15 or 20 followed after. Stopped about ten min utes, I think. Spears went up to man in the wagon. Hendri lived on Smith street. Young lived on Sumner street; Lewis on Bradbury it. The nearest way home was by the Bidde ford House. I went round with Wilkinson lor a walk. Wilkinson asked us to go. Young, Lewis, Wilkinson and I went along together, dust before reaching the Emerv house met Kinioon and Spears. v\ uk'nson said, “Id like to go through him,” in a sportive manner. I said nothing, but laughed. Wilkinson and Lewis took hold first; down by Jellison’s store I took hold. Spears wanted to go across the street ani drink. I let go and Spears pitched into the street. I then took hold of him and went to the middle of the bridge. Wilkinson dragged him alone to the end of the curb or near it.— Lewis and I went ahead. He fell over into the drain. Wilkinson called me jack to help him up. When I went hack Spears kicked at me. Wilkinson asked why I didn’t kick back. Told him he’d used me well and I’d use him well.— The second time he fell his head struck the curb-stone. When Bowe passed Spears had fallen flrBt time. Wilkinson and I dragged him across the road to sober off. Spears did not speak when we carried him over. Wilkinson wanted to go hack and carry him further out oft le road so wagons would not go over him.— I would not go back. Woman passed when I got half across the street. Wilkinson said “let him lay there and sober off." We then went up the opposite hill to the Express Office. Wil kinson said he must go home. He left and we went home. Gave no notiee because I thought the man was drunk,, would sober off and go home. Thought no mole about the matter at the time. F. I). Edgerly, sworn. Charles is my son.— I was at home Oct. 6th, in the evening. Chas. o tme home about 1-4 or 20 minutes past nine o'clock. Know it was before 10. Next day forenoon went to Mr. Tenney’s meeting. He went with me. Mr. Durgin called Jirst alter we got home from meeting—past 12. The case was not arvued to the Jury. After the evidence had been taken out, on the sug gestion of the Court, the County Attorney en tered a nol.proi. as to the charge of murder or other felony, and the defendant plead guilty to aeiault and battery, without a felonious intent. Sentence is reserved in this case as well as Wilkinson’s. Surprise Party.—Bev. A. W. Pottle, of ths Methodist Church in Saccarappa, was taken entirely by surprise on Friday evening last. Perhaps it should, the rather, be said that himself and wife were greatly surprised to find that their house had been taken complete pos session of by members of his society and oth ers. Being on a social visit in the neighbor hood, word was sent that a gentleman and lady were at their house desiring to see them. There was indeed a gentleman and lady in waiting, but as the greater includes the less, ladies not a few and gentlemen also were there, enough comfortably to fill the rooms, all enjoying themselves in social converse or mer ry song. After a pretty general and somewhat face tious introduction, Mr. Neal, in behalf of the visitors, formally addressed the pastor, admit ting very frankly, that the company bad ren dered themselves legally liable, by thus enter ing his premises, but pleading that no suit might be instituted, as they were ready to compromise the matter by the prompt pay ment of all reasonable damages. He then handed the pastor th c sum of $183, accom panying the presentation with happy allusions to the collection, which evinced a state of feel ing alike honorable and gratifying to pastor and people. ‘‘Words are insufficient," the pastor replied, adequately to convey the feeling* of my heart, in view of this unexpected token of your confidence;” but nevertheless, very apt words were employed, and an allusion to a re plv once made by Father Bradley of pleasant memory, on a similar occasion, was received with lively applause.

After a prolonged absence, occasioned by an obstinate and painfal lameness, the Rev. Mr. Walker occupied the pulpit at State Street Church yesterday, and preached his farewell discourse. Of the sermon, so broad in its char ity, so kind and yet so faithful in its applica tion, we do not now speak, except to say that its character as a farewell sermon was only in dicated by the depth of warm and tender feel ing revealed in every sentence, and the pecul iar solemnity of its admonitions. Alter the sermon, Mr. Walker read the following Utter of resignation, which sufficiently explains the reasons for dissolving a relation which, both for pastor and church, haa been unusually happy: To the Members of State Street Church and Parish:—My Dear Friends: When X was first prostrated last summer by the disability under which I still labor, it was my fear that recov ery would be very slow. I then thought,—and expressed the thought to several among you,—that it might be the wisest course to withdraw from my official con nection with you. Your prompt and generous action prevented. With characteristic kind ness you tendered me a prolonged respite from labor, in hope of my restoration. Though myself somewhat doubtful whether your kindly hope would he realized, I grateful ly accepted your offer, subject to the develop ments of a few months experience. I had so strong evidence of your regard for me that I felt it would be more satisfactory ta you to wait awhile to see what the result would be, rather than to have me act on what might, seem the apprehensions of the moment. Nor was I my self, in spite of my fears, without considerable hope of being well, much before the designated period. But more than half the time 1 endered me is now gone; and after somewhat varying experi ences, I am, substantially, just where X was, and still in entire uncertainty as to the time of my p'obable recovery. I am, however, as per suaded as I can be of any future unknown event, that it will not be by the expiration of the year accorded me, and probably not for a good while longer. Past experience and pres ent condition combine to assure me that the time of my recovery is both remote and indefi nite. With this conviction it becomes consistent neither with my own sense of honor, or my feeling of obligation to you, to go on longer the recipient of your waiting kindness. I cannot with self-respect or fidelity to you, await the expiration of a period which will,—I am per fectly convinced,—find restoration still in the uncertain future. Nor would still further delay—supposing you were generously willing to grant it,—be, in my judgment, wise either for you or for me. Doubt and deferred hope are bad for both of us. The burden of that uncertainty might weigh un favorably upon you; I know it would upon me. Meantime it cannot be forgotten that you were never in greater need of the regular min istration of an able-minded and able-bodicu pastor. The important changes which have taken place in the social and ecclesiastical con dition of things in this city, call for the pres ence among you and in the community of an efficient leader of this Church. For want of such an one, many interests must suffer. But such a one, the absence of health (not to insist on other considerations) precludes the hope of my being for an entirely indefinite period to come. l teel, therefore, that the tune hag arrived ft*» the painful duty of resigning my office as your pastar After prolonged de liberation and prayer for Divine guidance, I am forcod to believe that a sundering of our re lations has become a Providentially imposed necessity. Believing thus, I hereby resign my trust as your ministar into your hands, and ask you to unite with me in a Council to effect the formal dissolution of the ecclesiastical connec tion. I have already delayed this action longer than I otherwise should, waiting fjpr a time when my health would permit mo to come to you once more, and communicate my decision face to face. After long disappoiutment, being at last granted this privilege, I trust your acuui escence in my request will be as prompt as the necessity seems plain. Pardon me if I add that in these weary months past I have, I be lieve, contemplated the subject in well-nigh all its possible bearings. Korean I think thatauy further consideration of it would present any thing to alter an opinion already thoughtfully and prayerfully made. And now, having fulfilled what has been for me a most trying duty, what can I say to give utterance to my feelings in view of this antici pated sundering of m.v relations to you? I can say nothing. The memory of eight and a half years of unremitting kindness on your part to ward me and mine, makes all words poor. You have been ge erous and faithful friends to me. You have been forbearing toward my infirmi ties and forgiving toward my faults. I have never had a need you could satisfy, which you have not thoughtfully met. You have stood by me in happiness and in affliction. I can never thank you enough. It pleases me to believe we shall still he uni ted bv more than common ties. However out wardly separated, a bond of connection will yet endure, not only in a common Faith, but in the affections of the living and remembrances of the dead. Whether the Master of the Vineyard has any further work for me to do as his minister, I cannot tell. Still if He does restore me to health, and give me a place to labor, never can I expect a home so beloved, a people so kind. The best I can wish for one who comes after mo is that you treat him as you have treated me. And my earnest prayer is that he may be,—far more than I have ever been,—a source of blessing to you all, and a larger winner of souls to Christ. Your grateful pastor and friend, Geo. h. Walker. •rortlana, men. 3,1867. Mr. Walker’s reading was several times in terrupted by his natural emotion, and many of his hearers were affected to tears. The Provi dence by which this laborer has been removed from the field which ho was tilling so well is hard to understand—hard for him, hard for his church, hard for all who have watched the good work ho has been doing. His removal from his pastorate is a loss not only to State Street Church but to the city. A meeting of the Church will be held this evening, and of the Parish Wednesday eve ning, to act upon Mr. Walker’s letter. The total value of foreign exports for the past week amounted to $231,358.35.

P. Y. M. C. A. Cotjbbb Lectures. — The Eleventh lecture of the above course will be delivered in the Free Street Church on Wed nesday evening next, by Eev. Wm. Alvin Bartlett, of Brooklyn, N. Y. From the repu tation of the lecturer we feel confident that the patrons of this course hafe an intellectual treat in store lor them. “Boys” is a novel sub ject lor a lecture and there will bo quite a curi osity to hear this young and excentrio yet elo quent preacher’s ideas upon it. Go AND see the silver speaking trumpet won by Oeean Associates, Ex-4’s, at Hadley’s exhi bition, Saturday evening, March 2d, at their grand ball at Mechanios’ Hall to-night. This is the last of the season, and we predict a hap py time to all who participate, for they hold the reputation of being able to please all who give them a call. Pabtinoton’s window in Lancaster Hall building was the centre of attraction on Sat urday. A large number of terrapin, some of great size, were crawling about, and a lot of canvass back ducks garnished the gas pipe.— The whole are intended for the supper to a large party that is to come off up town this week, and for which Partington is caterer. Accident.—Friday afternoon a little son of Mr. McNeal, while riding along on Adam street, in company with his brother, the carriage was upset, and the little fellow was thrown upon the edge of a curb stone, receiving several bruises and a severe gash on the side of the head. His wounds were dressed by Dr. Lamb, and he is now doing very well.

Sal* of Read Estate.—Wm. E. Edwards, Esq., has purchased the brick house on the easterly side of Winter street, of Capt. Leav itt, for $6,000.___ , * Saturday Night.—Four persons were taken to the lockup Saturday night—three for drunk enness and one for drunkenness and disturb anoe. ;vhc PorilAltd Coiuiiae ,, John S,s-‘itoW, Esq., has retired ftflm the 1 Superin tendency of this Company, with the intention, it Is understood, of devoting his whole time to the interests of the Eagle Sugar Refinery. His superior mechanical ability has been employed for the benefit of the Compa ny for many years, his service (hating back to nearly the commencement of the undertak ing. Mr. George F. Morse succeeds Mr. Sparrow as Superintendent of the works. He has had fifteen years experience in the office of the Company, and it is believed that his enorgjn skill, promptness and urbanity will tend much towards the future success of the Corporation. Col. Thomas Lincoln Casey leaves the posi tion of Treasurer and General Manager, his term of furlough from the Government hav ing expired; and he resumes his place as Uni ted States Engineer, having charge of Forts Preble aDd Scammel. Much to the pleas are of his many friends, he is to be stationed bore, as formerly, and it is earnestly hoped tlaat Government will always employ his efficient services in this locality where he is so Uiglaly esteemed. We understand that Col. Casey has been eminently successful in the place which he now vacates, though occupying it less than a year. The Directors consented with great re luctance to his resignation of the office, and only accepted it when they found he could not be prevailed upon to retain it. Hon. Jacob McLellan has been elected to the office of Treasurer and General Manager, in place of Col. Casey. We congratulate the Company in securing the services of Capt. McLellan. It is unnecessary to say to the community what his qualifications are. His indomitable ener gy, his sterling integrity and his long experi ence as a business man are too well bnown.— His course at Mayor of the city during the most trying years of the rebellion, entitles him to the gratitude of our citizens, and the same qualities which he exhibited there, will, we doubt not, help to bring success to the Com pany now. Contemptible Business. It was reported by telegraph on Saturday that the 1st National Bank at Hudson, New Ydrk, had failed in consequence ol operations of the Cashier, who had used the funds of the institution for stock-jobbing transactions. Some contemptible democrats in the 7th Ward ia this city made use of the intelligence about the Hudson Bank and its Cashier, to circulate it in their Ward, altering the Bank to the 1st National in this city, and the Cashier to Win E. Gould, Esq., who is a candidate for Council man in that Ward. A baser act and one more filled with falsehoods could not have been ut tered, either as it respects file Bank or its Cashier. The gt„ry is a fabrication from begin ning to end, and we hope the wretches who started it will be discovered and brought to justice. The Bank has not lost a dollar, and the integrity of its Cashier stands upon the firmest foundation. We hope a senso of honest justice will in duce the voters of Ward 7 to frown indignantly upon such slanders by appearing at the polls to-day and voting for Mr. Gould. Larceny of Cloth.—The person who gives his name as James Edwards, and who was sen tenced to GO days imprisonment for stealing cloth from the door of Leveen’s clothing store, in Market Square, had a very short career in this city. He excused his conduct to the Court by saying that he was drunk and out of money, and being a stranger here could not borrow. Under these discouraging circumstances he took about twenty-five yards of cloth, inviting ly exposed by Leveen & Co., Thursday morn ning, and started on his travels, seeking a cus tomer. The cloth was worth about two dollars a yard, but Edwards was quite willing to sell for less, and succeeded in disposing of six or seven yards for little or nothing. Meanwhile the affair had taken wind, and when Edwards arrived at John Sidney’s shop on Fore street, a man who had heard of it gave Mr. Sidney a hint upon which he took immediate action, locking up the peddler and starting for the police office at once. Beforo his return, how ever, officer Williams, who bad been for somo hours on Edward's track, had run his game to cover aud secured him. The Miltonian Tableaux and the Apo cmtmi -To-night this grand exhibition will open at Deering Hall. The scenes which it illustrates are thoso which Milton has depicted in his immortal poem of Paradise Lost. The whole argument of the epic is told on canvass in a series of finely executed paintings, Luoi fer’s revolt in heaven; the marshalling of the angelic hosts; the terrible battles with the hosts of the angel Gabriel; Lucifer’s overthrow and expulsion from heaven; his descent to the in fernal regions; the Satanic Council; his escape from hell and journey through chaos to earth; the Garden of Eden; Adam and Eve; the temptation and fall, are all portrayed with such graphic fidelity as to fasten itself upon the minds of old and young, learned and un learned. The Apocalypse, or visions of St. John, form a powerful attraction with the above, and no doubt the hall will be crowded with a large and intelligent audience. Office of Collectob of Internal Rev enue.— Mo. 901-2 Commercial Street, First Col lection District of State of Maine.—The Reso lution of Congress granting a temporary sus. pension of the collection of certain Internal Revenue taxes assessed against sufferers by the fire of July 4, I860, provides that such sus pension shall not be continued alter March 4. 1867. As a penalty of ten per cent, will accrue on all taxes remaining unpaid after that date, it will be well for tax-payers to settlo their bills without further delay as the ten per cent, pen alty will be exacted. Portland, Feb’y 28,1867. Congbess Square Universalist Church —The annual discourse before the Female Samaritan Society was delivered in this church last evening by Rev. Mr. Bolles. It was a beau tiful as well as able production, and, iudging from the looks of the boxes, a handsome col lection was obtained.

Brown, sailed from this port for Liver pool at 8 o’clock Sunday morning, having wait ed for the train from Canada. She had a large cargo and 38 passengers. Steamship Peruvian, Capt. Ballantine, will sail from this port for Liverpool next Satur day. The Nova Scotian is the steamer duo at this port this week from Liverpool. At their Old Place.—Messrs. Woodman. Truo & Co. to-day remove back to the spot from which they wero driven by the great fire last July, corner of Middle and Silver streets. They will occupy one of the most spacious warehouses in the city until the building which they are erecting on the corner of Middle and Pearl streets is finished. They have a large and splendid stock of goods, to which they in vite the attention of country dealers. Dedication.—The rooms of the Portland Army and Navy Union, in the 1st National Bank building, will be dedicated this evening with appropriate services. The address will be delivered by Col. A. W. Bradbury, and a poem by David Barker, Esq. In consequence of the limited room only 200 tickets will be issued. We shall endeavor to give some account of the proceedings to-morrow. We understand the union morning prayer meetings held in the vestry of the Free Street Church last week, were so interesting that it has been decided to continue them every morn ing this week, at 8 o’clock. The public are cor dially invited to attend. At a public installation of Maine Lodge No. 11. O. O. F., Monday evening, Feb. 25, the fol lowing officers were installed into their respec tive chairs: William H. Smith, N. G.; Roscoe W. Turner, V. G.; A.D. Smith, T.; John K. Hooper, P. S.; H.

State Items. —The Fortification bill just passed by Con gress, appropriates for the defences of our har bor, $50,000 for Fort Scamruell, the same amount for Fort Gorges, and the same for Fort Preble. A similar appropriation is made for Fort McCleary at Portsmouth, N. H. The three forts in Boston harbor have each a like sum. —The Bangor Whig congratulates Hon. Win H. McCrillis of that city on having “found rest in the bosom of the Democratic party." This gentleman recently joined in festive political fellowship with such well-known patriots as Gen. Boynton, Abraham Sanborn, Marcellus Emery etc. Mr. McC. is a disappointed man, the Republican party having failed to appre ciate his worth by returning him for Congress, and hence his sourness and new party affilia tions. —Says the Belfast Aye, “Mr. Brown of Port land, of the new Maine Telegraph Company (International), is in this city soliciting sub scription to the stock and making arrange ments for the erection of the line. The stock, we learn, baa all been taken, except the amount reserved for Belfast and Rockland.— The new company will commenco erecting the line as soon as spring opens.” —The Time* represents the steamers between Bath and Boston as doing an unusually large business. The line is made up of two large, fast and substantial boats. —The Bath shipyards have seldom been known so quiet as at the present time. If re lief is not afforded in some way to shipbuild ers, our commercial marine will soon become “beautifully less” than it is at present, while the “Bluenoses” will grow rich on our decline. —The Patten Voice speaks in flattering terms of the lumbering business on the upper Penobscot, and says, “within a radius of about twenty-five miles of this place there are some two hundred teams and twelve hundred men engaged in the logging business. To haul sup plies tor all these men and teams, it requires more than two hundred horses and a hundred men, who have to face the wind, buffet the storm, and wallow through drifts of snow.” —The “My Policy” appointees in Brunswick, Bangor and other places, who found it so convenient to swing around the“cirkle” with “A. J.,” have suddenly come to grief in the U 0. Senate. Their rations have been unexpect edly cut off. —Ihe Kennebec Reporter, published at Gar diner by G. O. Bailey & Co., has entered upon its second volume under the most flattering auspices.
