JOHN KINIHAN} Union Street, mchfdtt PORTLAND, ME’ DAILY press. PORTLAND. Wednesday Morning, March 6, 1867. The lhc , Parties can no more long outlive their use fulness than individuals. As a general rule when a nation, a party or an individual ceas es to grow, and the vital circulation becomes stagnant, decay commences, and death is al most sure to follow speedily. True, for a Ion time mere existence may he prolonged, as in an etl’ete nation, bed-ridden individuals, or political parties that have ceased to subserve any other purpose than that of beacons to warn the living tide against backward tenden cies and cast-off issues. The old Whig party, which enrolled on its books such brilliant names as those of Clay, Wirt and Everett, and names of such ponderous weight as those of Adams, Webster and Evans, came to its death by having no further mission to accomplish. It had it3 day, performed its work, and ii^e a filled up scroll had to be rolled up and filed away among the things of the past, nor could the skill of all the constitutional and legal doctor in the universe have continued its life or essentially varied its destiny. The Democratic party is going the same way. It has outlived all that ever gave it vi tality except its name. It no longer repre sents living, breathing, feeling men, or a pro gressive age, nor is it the guardian of human equal rights, but it has become the merest drag upon the car ol progress, the barnacle upon the bottom of the ship of State, the millstone upon the nation's neck, and to death and dusty oblivion it must descend. It has become hollow, senseless, lifeless and of fensive, and every popular election only dem onstrates this fact, the returns of the con stantly diminishing party vote reminding one of the first dirt thrown upon the newly de posited coffin. The Southern men, to Whom the Northern Democracy now look for a recip rocation of the aid and comfort which was so generally extended to them in their late ex tremity, regard the Democracy of to-day as we have represented it in the above remarks, and one of them, Gov. Brown of Georgia, has seed fit to remind them that the party which crosses a nations war path must go to the wall. In a recent speech he said: The Democratic Party is not sustained by the people ot the Noith, aud is not gaining ground. As is always the case after a success ful war, the party iu the Government which is set down as opposed to the war, is unpopular The reconstruction policy of the President is not sustained by the popular sentiment ot the Northern people. Of the dominant party at the North—the party of vitality, of living issues—the same gentleman truthfully remarked, in the speech quoted from above: The , party usually designated the “Radical I arty is sustained by the majority of the jieo ple ot the North. The Congressmen of that party are generally representative men. This Gov. Brown is one of the men who, under the newly passed reconstruction hill, are disfranchised, and yet with more patriot ism and less haughtiness than has been or now is usual in the South, he urges his peo ple to accept the situation, and to lose no time in dosing in with the overtures lor peace and settlement which that bill holds out to them. After reading the following extract from the Governor, one almost feels to commiserate his situation, and to regret that he must fall be neath the retributive act which will make of him a political nonentity. That a man of such spirit, laboring to confer benefits upon his people from which he must be excluded, will long remain among the disfranchised, we do not believe. In a recent speech he said: soSma^FsVsWr'm P^cuts_it with thine adversary quickly.” We are pros trate and powerless. Wc can offer no further resistance. The conquerors dictate their own terms, which are heightened in severity by the delay ot the conquered to accent them. Be cause we have lost immensely, is it wise stub bornly to sacrifice the little that islefi to us?— Tile decree has gone forth that some of us, my self among others, who were called to lead our people and direct public affairs during the late unhappy struggle, shall he disfranchised, and at least politically sacrificed. If the sympa thies of those whom we represented were not with us, they would be less than human. But is it best that they cling to us till they have made beggars of their wives and children, and plunged themselves into irretrievable ruin, when their fidelity cando us no good? I think not. Justice to their wives and childred re quires that we do not encourage them in this course. And above all, if peace, quiet and re turning prosperity can be restored to Bur un happy country by the sacrifice, we should make it without further hesitation or delay. The Compound-Interest Notes. The bill to provide for the redemption of the compound-interest notes outstanding, passed the two houses of Congress as follows: Be it enacted, dec. That for the purpose of redeeming and retiring any compound-interest notes outstanding, the Secretary of the Treas ury is hereby authorized and directed to issue temporary loan certificates in the maimer pre scribed by section four of the act entitled “An act to authorize the issue of United States notes and for the redemption or funding there of, and forfunding the floating debtof the 'Uni ted States,” approved February 25,1802, bear ing interest at a rate not exceeding three per cent, per annum, principal and interest paya ble in lawful money on demand; aud said cer tificates ot temporary loan may constitute and be held by any national bank holding or own ing the same as a part of tlio reserve provided for in sections thirty-one and thirty-two of the act entitled “An act to provide a national cur rency secured by a pledge of United States bonds, and to provide for the circulation anil redemption thereof,” approved June 3, 1884: Provided, That not less than two-fitths of the entire reserve of such bank shall consist of lawful money of the United States: And pro vided further, That the amount of such tem porary certificates, at any time outstanding, shall not exceed $50,000,000. This settlement of the matter is not the worst which might have happened. These three per cent, certificates will replace titty millions of compounds now held by the banks, at a lower rate of interest than than we have been payiug, which is a step in the right di rection. The remaining fifty millions mann ing this year will have to be paid out of the funds in the Treasury, reported on the 1st inst. at 97 millions in coin and 45 millions in currency. This of course will lie a contrac tion of the currency to the extent of 50 mil lions, since it is well understood that the com pounds are not in circulation. It must lie borne in mind, however, that the Secretary of the Treasury is already authorized,not direct ed, to withdraw 48 millions a year. If then the contraction arising from the payment ot the compounds proves too rapid for the busi ness of the country, it is in the power of the Secretary to suspend the process of con traction by calling in and destroying the legal tenders, and thus limit the whole operation to these G8 millions. The prospect of a with drawal of 50 millions a year from circulation, ought not, under the circumstances, to occa sion any serious alarm. The I.ale Vrtaes. Only a synopsis of the President’s veto mes sages was received at this office, Monday night, by telegraph. The messages are published at length in some of the Boston papers, and we would cheerfully transfer them to our columns did we believe the readers of the Prccs wyuld appreciate such an act. Of coarse they are made up of the old story to wliich President Johnson has become familiar, and those who have read one of hisvetoes on any|subject in volving the question of equal rights, know pretty well the tone and mode of argument ex hibited in his last efforts. The fact that consid erably more thau two-thirds of both Houses failed to he (influenced by the arguments of the President, affords pretty conclusive evi dence that he did not succeed in making his ease any plainer than the sun at noon-day, to say the least. To meet the objection of unconsti tutionality urged by the President against the Reconstruction bill, we need only quote a pas sage from Senator Reverdy Johnson of Mary land, on the finai passage ot tho bill over the veto; Mr. Johnson being one ot the President s political friends, and confessedly one oMghe ablest constitutional lawyers of the Democrat ic school now on the stage of action. His re marks are reported as follows: Mr Johnson said that, while doing as he most sincerely did full justice to the conscientious nurposo of the President, he could rot but re gret that he had felt himself compelled to send this message to Congress. There were many propositions in law contained in that message which could not be maintained. There were many errors of judgment in it which, upon ex amination, would lie apparent. The result to winch he had been compelled to come in th« exercise of his judgment, which there was no I doubt was conscientiously exercised, seemed to hnn, the speaker, fraught with nothing but continued turmoil, danger and error, to the South and to the entire country. Hc rose, therefore, for the purpose ol slating very brief ly, in addition to what he had already said when the measure was before the Senate on a former ocoasion, why it was that he had cast the vote lie had cast on that occasion, arul why it was that he should give the same vote now. [Applause in the galleries, which was repress ed by the chair.] It will uot be for a moment supposed, said Mr. Johnson, by those to whom lam addressing myself, that I am gov erned now, or that I was governed then, by any hope of popular applause. My motives, if 1 know myself, were perfectly pure and patri otic. 1 saw belore me a distracted and almost bleeding country. 1 thought 1 saw, aud I think 1 sec now, the means by which it might "■tutored to a healthful condition, aud the nstitutioiM of the country in the end preserv when arr‘ve<l at the period of my life I..’h„.?T,‘r'any other ambition animated me, serving?-110 olbet ambition now than that of him to*savy»‘;,TJtry' was unnecessary lor st.uetionj exacted6conditions to1 Thev were in n- by ,tbe present executive. tional as any thm ciuUu"1'?1 a1 unco°stitn' The Congress of the Uni»iaU ad ln tb,s b*d’ opinion tnat, notwSn.tLd!^ ,?U‘tea war® u* Southern States comphed ol tbe acted by the present chief ma^sUate^tW could uot be restored without tlTe « tb< y congressional legislation, and this w£,°“,Kf judgement of the country. Then how they to come back? Only by complying with the conditions which Congress may impose— whether Congress had the authority to impose them or not—or, tailing to comply, to remamin the sad condition in which they now are. He imputed had motives neither to Congress nor to the executive. He thought he know his du ty to the institutions of the country too well to call i|i question the motives of either. He conceded purity of purpose and patriotic princi ples to both. He differed from both, but he sought the restoration of the Union, and hc saw no way of accomplishing it now but by the adoption of the measure now before the Sen ate. In conclusion he said he was glad to see from the public prints of the South, and to be informed by many leading men of tbe South, that it was the purpose of the Southern States to organize under this bill. They were taking lessons from Experience. “The constitutional amendment,’’he said, “if it had been adopted, would have brought into this chamber and the other chamber representatives from the South. Of that I have no doubt. Now it will uot. The bill which we passed, and which was after ward amended in the House, would have ac complished the same purpose upon terms less exacting than the one now before the Senate. It was amended aud the amendment is the most obnoxious feature of the bill. The Sen ate passed it and I voted for it. Why? Be cause I thought, I kuow 1 thought, I had satis factorily ascertained that this failing, a meas ure of a more rigid character, a measure found ed upon the idea tliat the people of the South were conquered enemies and their property li able to forfeiture, would have been enacted.” Tbe Cental Mfeteat* Dry measures ars about to be abolished, and Weight is to take their place. Henceforth coni, grain, &c. are to be bought and sold by the pound, and Prices Current will report tbe prices tier 100 lbs. This will secure to every purchaser a true and uniform amount of nu tritious substance in the breadstuffs purchased. Hitherto the bushel measiue has not always been a correct criterion on account of tbe dif ference in tbe weight of the same species of cereals. The cental system was first recom mended by the Albany Board of Trade. Since tben, it has been approved and adopted by similar Boards in all the large grain marts of the country, St. Louis, Chicago, Milwaukie, Detroit, Cleveland, Buffalo, Rochester, New York, Philadelphia and, we believe, Boston. By common understanding the cental system went into operation in all those places on the 1st day of March inst. The Rural New York er makes the subject plain by the following: For a time there may be some contusion in tbe quotation of prices, but people will very soon liecome accustomed to the new method. Some papers have published long tables, giv ing prices per bushel, and at the same rate per cental. Such tables are not always accessible, and we therefore give a rule by which buyers and sellers can make their own calculations. The standard weight of Wheat per bushel is 00 lbs.; Corn and Rye, 56 lbs.; Barley, 48 lbs.; Oats, 02 lbs. The price per bushel being giv en, to find tbe price per central multiply tbe price per bushel by 100 and divide by tbe num ber of pounds in tbe bushel. For instance :— price1 'per ”?imar'—7o0 x 109 = 15^000- 60“ $2.50, which is the price per central. Again: The price per cental being given, to find the price per bushel multiply the price percental by tbe nuuilier of pounds in the bu-liel and divide by 100. Example: At $2.50 per cen tal, what is the price per bushel of CO lbs.? — 2.50 x 00=15,000- 100 = $1.50, the price per bushel. Vegetables ought to be sold by weight, as well as grain. A bushel of com is leveled by a strickle; but a bushel ol potatoes, apples, beets or carrots, is heaped up to five pecks. Traxi. [Correspondence of the Press.] nailers ia Hfsw York.

In my last, allusion was made to the im proved condition and spring-like appearance of the weather. Since tben, it has been dem onstrated that signs fail; for we have had an other great snow-storm and its concomitants ot ice, slush, and mud, which have just come to a termination in a powerful rain, and fog of the thickness they have in Eastport, Me., where, it is said, they cut it in squares with a “cast-knife.” Did you ever see New York in process of convalescence from a snow storm, when the snow gets fully incorporated with the black mud, and, under a powerful sun be gins to run ? Broadway is a continuous acre of slush. Nassau street abounds in icebergs and mud-puddles. Down Fulton street tbe water runs in rivulets, and East and North Rivers absolutely swell with tbe debris of the street. 'Then pedestriauism—there is the rub! See the black, waxy paste adhering to boots, pants, skirts, &c., visible and invisible. Wit ness the tall and gentlemanly members of the Broadway Police squad, with mud up to their eyes, passing ladies across Bioadway between horses’ heads, omnibus steps, butchers’ carts and truck wagons. Never, till you sec this, will you have a realizing sense of mud—iuky, greasy, everlasting New York mud. But it is refreshing just about this time to know that Broadway is to be bridged 1 At the intersec tion of Fulton, within a week, a fine iron bridge has been raised. At this point, where such immense masses of humanity pass every moment, it was found impossible to put up a bridge in the day time, and most of the work has been done in the night. It will be finish ed this week, and then, when Broadway is blocked up and mud surges in its centre, the pedestrian may ascend a flight of iron steps and get up or down Broadway and into Ful ton street by an serial transit The evening papers of Friday afternoon last informed the public that on the morning of that very day a man was hung in the ‘'Tombs.” That man was George Wagner. He was le gally choked to death for the murder of his wile. About 200 spectators, including the re porters who get in everywhere, were present, besides the officers of justice and a force of about 150 of the Metropolitan Police. Wag ner, who was about half dead with consump tion, died a terrible death by strangulation, the shock not being sufficient to dislocate his neck. He was nearly five minutes in the contortion of the dreadful agony. Another *ictim to the law’s stern justice, Charles B. Manuel, is to be hung in the Tombs on the 19th day of next month. The Board of Health, established by the 1 legislature of last year, is to have extra pow er granted by the present Legislature. It has been found absolutely necessary in order to secure tbe prompt execution of measures for the protection of life and the prosecution of health in the city of New York. It is aston isbinghow, for the sake of pelf, men will en danger the lives and health of others. A case in point is a late report to the Board of nealth, in substance that one S. M. Styles is building a blodt of ten dwelling-houses, with Si^-second «., poplHisto hCentirely destitute of adh&V*qualltW The wall of one'^" the npuses fell down,about a i(uk ago, wheffthe floorjrtmber^ wefc being punn. in* juring four persons. All tlkhiftfls hate to be propped up to keep them from falling till the roof can be got on to keep them together. The Board of Health have very properly ordered the work to stop, the walls to be taken down and rclaid with proper mortar. The annual report of the Superintendent of | Public Buildings shows that the number of buildings erected during the year is 10T0~h^T ing480more than in 1865. The number of dangerous buildings reported as existing iu the city is 331, many of them owned by non residents who cannot be foucd. In 099 tene ment houses, the proprietors have been oblig ed to put in “fire-escapes,” and in one case of the refusal of a proprietor to do it, he was ar rested for misdemeanor, and the case is now before the courts. 'The use of blue stone for caps, or brick piers for loundatioDS for iron fronts, is strongly condemned as very danger ous. The great newspapers of New York are the Jlerahl, the Tribune, the World and the Times. \ ery few people have any idea of the amount of capital invested in these American “Thunderers.” The Herald is soon to be moving into a new marble palace on the corner of Broadway and Ann street, which cost over $1,000,000. James Gordon Bennett made the Herald. The expend itures o! the Tribune lor the past year were $900,000. Horace Greeley made the Tri bune. The World occupies oue of the finest newspaper offices in New York. Manton Marble, a polished writer, is its presiding genius. The Times building, which fronts Printing-House Square and merges Park Row, and Nassau street together, is a beauti ful building. The Times made about $100,000 the last year. Henry J. Raymond, one of the most prolific writers of the day, made the Times. The official examination to which I alluded in a former letter as to the reason why a re cent fire in Broadway proved so destructive and was not sooner extinguished is a result of importance to every city and especially to in surancec orapanies I will mention a few other facts elicited by the examination. It wa3 stated that New York, with a population of $1,000, 000, uses 60,000,000 gallons oi water daily, while London, with a population of $3,000 - 000, uses but 00,000,000. In London the water is measured by metres; in New York it is not measured. John H. Rhodes, water purveyor, testified that the bead of water at the hy drants is not sufficient to supply band engines, and the only wonder is that New York was not burned down long ago. The waste of water from the Ridgewood in Brooklyn is almost equal to the waste from the Croton in -sew lork. About lour tilths of the water io Brooklyn is wasted, and an additional main pipe is to he laid the ensuing summer at a cost of ♦1,000,000. Mr. Rhodes says the former pressure at the hydrants iu Brooklyn was 40 i>ounds—now it is only 10 pounds. The examination went to show that some thing must be done to prevent the excessive waste from the two great acqueducts; and the only feasible plan seems to be a check on water extravagance by the universal adoption of water metres. Brooklyn, the “City of Churches” on the other side of East river, has, in the list of her clergy, two of the Maine Episcopal Diocese. Rev. Alexander Burgess, formerly of St. Luke's, Portland, is now officiating in the old parish of St. John, formerly under the‘charge of the eloquent Seymour. Mr. Burgess is well received by the people, and by his gen tlemanly and sociable characteristics, added to close application to clerical labors, is gain ing hosts of friends. Rev. Edward Jessup, also of Maine, and formerly Rector of Grace Church, Bath, is now the tespected and elo quent Rector of the Church of the Redeemer, on Pacific street. The church has grown rapidly under his charge, and within a year past, bis new ahurch, a beautiful edifice, has been finished and occupied. Thus it appears that if New York has given to Maine a Bish op, Marne has given to New York Diocese two faithful laborers In the priestly office. Nassau. A GBEEK Natai. OOTwtomon OoMnro. It is stated a journal of Trieste, in a letter from Athens, that the Greek Parliament has voted to increase the national marine to the extent of 2,000 sailors, and that the Govern ment intends to send to the United States in a few weeks from now several officers of the fleet, and mechanicians, for the purpose of purchasing a number of vessels of war. It Is expected that these Commissioners will leave at the same time that Gen. Callergis, lately nominated Greek Minister to Washington, sets off for his post. The Greeks are looking mote and more to our country for sympathy and material aid, as our position must natu rally lead us to take a moral and less selfish view of the settlement of the Oriental ques tion. Jeaaie Jaae aa the Faehfeai. SPRING STYLES. The new short dresses tor spring wear made in two colors—the dress of ono, the petti coat and sac paletot of another. A black dress with purple petticoat and paletot is a good combination, also black and dark bright blue. A green poplin dress and black silk un derskirt and paletot is a good style or a fine thibet dress with jacket and petticoat as the contrasting color. Care should be taken not to make the upper dress too short. Six inches is sufficient difference between the length of the upper skirt and the lower, measuring, of course, from the point of the dents, if it is cut in the usual way. The handsomest short dresses are black and trimmed with jet, with a painting below, hat they are leas fresh and spring-like in their appearance than the con trasting styles mentioned above. SPRING BOSKETS. This is a very important question. All fem ininedom arc anxious to know what new sur prises the milliners are preparing for them, and whether they will have to sacrifice their last new chignon. Their milliners, on the contra ry, are as anxiously inquiring hoitethcy can invent a small bonnet which will be piquant, which will not interfere with the hair, and which enterprising young ladies and economi cal persons cannot make for themselves. The results of their labors are not as yet very clear ly defined. ‘‘Opening day” is still too far oft', but the indications are all iu favor of a return to the complex bonnet, the regular orthodox combination of crown, brim and cape which preceded the saucy little “saucers” worn du ring the last nine months. Among the advanced styles that wo hare seen, the “Levigne” is the most decided novel ty. The brim turns up in front like the rim of a turban, with this difference, that it ascends instead of lying flat to the crown, and forms a tiara over the forehead. A narrow cape at the back surmounts the chignon and forms a comb. This is quite new and rather distingue, but it . can be becoming to very few women. Other styles in fancy straw approach more nearly to the bonnets of several years. The brim is nar row, but somewhat pointed and elevated in front, the cape small and surmounts the chig non. The crown is the most important part of the bonnet, and fits to the top or the head in stead of at the hack, leaving the cape and brim to serve as ornamental appendages, rath er than indispensable parts of the main struc ture.—Bottom Pott. Aweriru Implements and Carriages. There is, perhaps, np respect in which the new world has gone farther beyond the old than in diminishing the weight of carriages and imple ments. The American hoe Is a thin plate of steel, which a child could wield, instead of the heavy Kuropean iron hoe which it requires two or three times the amount of muscular power to lift, and which, nevertheless, does not cut the soil so easily and well. In ^cythos, pitch far fca and other implements, we find the same substitution of a superior material and a dim nuUon of weight; tU greatly lightning the labors of the form, and increasing the'r offl C'lt is, however, in pleasure carriages that the greatest improvement is to be remarked,—an improvement which our carriage-makers have been slow to imitate. The employment of the very best materials enables the .American car riage-makers to turn out a vehiole so light that it is very easy ta draw, and yet strong enough to carry .a good load and bear the roughest roads. Indeed it dances so lightly over the roads and yields so easily to any inequality that it scarcely feels stones and holes which would make a heavily-built carriage strain and creak. The Americans have “calculated" how to re lieve their horses as much as possible, and they have succeeded so effectualy that, with their light carnages, they will get much more work out of a horse amt carriage than if the latter were heavily built, besides d ri vi nii»l t *L,m uc h more pleasure all the time.—Montreal Wltn at John Stuart Mat, « » »P'*k",'a‘h“; £ scribed by the Loudon correspondent ot the Nation: . . _ xr;iv» amtearanco, on the other hand, de MrM.llsappea™ ftom the Talue of hi, word. yHe fooks so slight snd frail his ■ T, i« so feeble aud requires so much atten his manner it so nervously rapid, that one feels at first alarmed lest he should suddenly break down.
