T I I [•: 1J H ESS. Friday Morning, March 8. 1867. Mennlur Fnwudru nud the Commilieeii. A special dispatch from Washington, states that in the Republican Senatorial caucus, Mr Fessenden positively declinod serving again as chairman of the Finance Committee, or even of the new committee on appropriations. I|< finds that the arduous labors of the last years have materially injured his hea > thinks that his loug services at the ea 01 most important committee in Congress in i el him now to a somewhat easier post on e will be chairman of tl.e committee on Public Buildings, and hold a subordinate position on some other committees. It is said Mr. Morrill of this State will be chairman of the committee on appropriations, that Mr. Sherman will take Mr. Fessenden’s I old place on the liuauce committee, while Messrs. Sumner, Wilson, Trumbull and Grimes will remain at the head of the committees on foreign relations, military, judiciary and naval ail-airs respectively. Mr. Harlan, it is suppos ed, will .ake Mr. Wade’s place on the territori al committee. Portland and Ogdcnsburg ICailroad. XV e are permitted to quote the lollowiug ex tracts from a let ter received in this city from a gentleman of high character residing in Con way, N. H.: X am familiar with the country from Conway through Albany via Swilt River to the height of land in Woodstock, and I have no hesita tion in saying that a railroad over this route can be built witli much less expense than over any other route through the White Mountain range. 1 do not think llie grade oyer this route will much exceed 50 feet to the mile. * * * Conway is about 40 miles distant from five railroad depots, to wit; Gorham, hi. H., on the north. Paris, Me.,northeast, Uuionville, south, Meridith, west, and Gorham, Me., on the east 'The n itural market of the whole cotiutry of which Conway is the centre, is Portland. For the last twenty years the subject of a railroad for the accommodation of this section of the country has been agitated. The war postpon ed it for a time. It is now renewed and will be continued until we have a railroad. Our inter ests are conuected witti Portland, because it is our nearest seaport, li Portland must have a railroad for the benefit of its Western trade, will it not be well for lior to select a route that will forever connect her interests with this sec tion qi the country, especially as it is undoubt edly the cheapest and nearest route to Ogdeus b nigh 7 The projet of extending the Great Falls and Conway road to Conway is not given up, hut if accomplished it will, after all, lie of little con sequeuce in comparison with a road to connect your city with Ogdeusburgli through this country. The former would be only a branch road while the latter would he a thoroughfare for the trade of the great West, sweeping through at the same time a country oi 40 miles in diameter now destitute of railroad facilities. The Impeachment Queolion. In the Republican caucus of the mcmliArs of the House, Wednesday evening, the question of impeachment was brought up, and Gens. Butler, Logan and others advocated referring it to a select committee ot thirteen. After con siderable discussion the proposition for a spec ial committee was voted down by a large ma jority, so the investigation will continue to he pushed by the Judiciary Committee. During the discussion a sharp encounter of words oc curred between Messrs. Butler of Mass., and Bingham of Ohio. Mr. Stevens of Pa. offered a resolution that when Congress adjourn it be to the 8th of May. Mr. Wilson of Iowa, moved to amend by sub stituting,the 20tli of October. We quote from “Perlcy’s” account: Mr. Wilson in supporting his resolution, re marked that the investigation was one of great gravity und labor, and that the question of pre senting articles of imjieachment should not be passed upon in the House until all the States entitled to representation here be present in the House, and three of them would be absent in May. Mr. Shellabarger said he appreciated the great gravity of the point raised by Mr. Wil son in regard to the absence, but it weighed less on his mind, inasmueh as the Senate, which was the body to try, was entirely full, and it did not make so much difference about House, which was merely the presenting body. air. Blaine asked Mr. Shellabarger how it would l>o if the House should present articles of impeachment by a majority smaller than ' the number of members to which the absent States a re entitled? Mr. Blaine further called attention to the fact that these States were ab sent by the fault of Congress, for Congress had changed the time ot its meeting and had failed to order new elections in those States, and the States were so situated that they could uot do it. Mr. Bout-well spoke very earnestly against adjournment till October. The question of impeachment was one disturbing the country, and it should be settled as soon as it colild be done with propriety and decency, whichever way it might result. Gen. Butler said: From the motion of Mr. Williams it was quite evident that the ques tion of impeachment should net he. referred to a n ne was Chairman, lor to postpone so long was to abandon. Mr. Bingham replied to Gen. Butler lor what he considered his arrogance and pre sumption in attempting to dictate to an inde pendent body of his peers on a grave question like this. Mr. Wilson’s resolution on a call by yeas and nays, was defeated, .17 yeas to 80 nays. Mr. Stevens’s resolution was then adopted. Mr. Allison of Iowa then offered a resolu tion declaring that the 40th Congress should not adjourn lor more than three days, until the question of impeachment was disposed of, but the caucus rejected this. Mr. Pomeroy oi New York then moved that Congress adjourn on Monday next, till May 8tli, and this was carried on a call of yeas and nays, by 57 to 54, and the caucus then adjourn ed. The Bankrupt Law. By the law passed, jurisdiction in bankrupt cy is given to the several United States Dis trict Courts with the United States Circuit Courts acting in a supervisory capacity as Courts of Equity, and Judges of the District Courts will Ik- assisted by Registers in Bank ruptcy, whose powers are limited, and provi sion is made for reference of disputed ques tious to the District Court Judges, and for ap peals from the District Court to the Circuit Courts, and from the latter, in eases where the matter in dispute shall exceed two thousand dollars, to the U. S. Supreme Court. mere are two kinds 01 bankruptcy, volunta ry and involuntary. In the former any person residing within the U. H. jurisdiction, owing over 8300, and finding himself insolvent, may apply by petition to the Judge of the District in which he has resided for the six months pro ceeding the date ofthe petition, or for the long est period during such six months, aud shall thereupon he declared a bankrupt. The credi tors having beenpro|>erly notified by the court, can appoint one or more asiguees of the estate of the debtor, the choice to he made by the greater part in value aud iu number ofthe creditors who have proved their debts, or, in case of failure to agree, then by tlie district Judge, or, where their are no opposing creditors, by the .Register. The whole affairs of the bank rupt pass into the bauds of tlie assignees, who have full powers granted them necessary for collection of all debts and the final adjustment and closing up of the estate; aud wlieie delay is likely to occur from litigation iu the final distribution of the assets, the court is empow ered to direct their teuiporay Investment. The bankrupt is liable at all times to be called up for examination on oath upon matters relating to the disposal or condition of his property or business transactions, and for good cause his wife may in like manner lie compelled to at tend as a witness in the case. In the distribution of the bankrupt’s estate dividends are to he paid as agreed upon by a majority iu value of the creditors, from time to time, at three months’ intervals, but the fol lowing claims are first to be paid iu full: First the fees costs and expenses under the act; see! ond, debts, taxes and assessments due to t'jn L. fc.; third.

There is in the Portland papers oi yesterday morning a “Card” in regard to the public trial of safes in Boston last week. The same card appeared in the Boston papers, and perhaps the reply made to it there will answer for this locality, especially if taken in connection with tie burning of another of his sates just wit nessed in Portland. It is as follows: To the Puulic:—The communication of Messrs. A. Hardy and G. L. L. Damon in some ot the Boston papers rf yesterday morning, in regard to the receut trial of safes on the Back Bay, requires a brief notice, for through jeal ousy they have been led into error in regard to matters of fact. They complain that their safe was placed where Uie lire was hottest, and that the trial was thererore unlair. But they omit to mention the stubborn fact that my lit tle sheet iron tiunk safe, only 16x20 inches in exterior dimensions, stood next to it, precisely in what they style the most “exposed place at the leeward end of the line,” and that every thing in it came out unharmed. The large sates were burned against each other, in the same fire; one was destroyed, the other not. The three smaller safes were burn ed against my little trunk, which stood with them, and, according to these gentlemen’s show ing, was even more exposed than they, and be ing thus, the trial was not unfair for their safes. As to the large safe containing my improve ment. it was not on tire inside, as these writers state. Nothing was touched with fire but the wood that lay against the red hot filling out side oj the. steam protection. Everything with in the safe was perfectly preserved, aud would have beeu if the tire had continued twenty-four hours longer, for not more than one-tenth of tho water had evaporated, and 1 need not state to intelligent readers that the interior of the safe could not have burned while filled with steam. The report of the disinterested committee is eminently deserving public confidence; but if the business men of Boston are not satisfied witli t lis t ia',I lio’d myself in readmes < to test my invenliou at any time in another trial with the Tremont Company’s safes, or any others, on the one condition that the party whose safes are destroyed shall pay the whole expense of the trial. The undignified cant at the close of the com munication, to which no Christian gentleman would descend, deserves no other notice than this: My safes are not sectarian; it theirs are, they will not stand the lire. Burrs S. Sanborn. Boston, March 5,18(17. The Colored Schools in ihc Uixtrirt of Co lumbia. In a recent number of the National Intelli gencer appeared an article in relation to the “Education of the Colored People in the Dis trict, from which we copy the extract below.— As Miss Lord, the teacher referred to, is sup ported in her field of effort by the Portland Society, we have thought it might be of inter est to many of our readers. After remarking that the most complete system of graded col ored schools in Washington is to be found in what is called the “New York Branch School,” which was organized on its present basis in the spring of 18(15, the Intelligencer says: This school was fortunate in being organized on a scale commensurate in some degree to correct ideas as to the essentials of a good graded school. The location of the school in the spacious barrack building on the corner of Fourteenth and M streets gave them a large uuuilicr of scholars and ample quarters for schools. They were also exceedingly fortunate in securing a most discreet gentleman as su p rintendent, Rev. E. A. Newton, who has pur sued his work with unobtrusive fidelity, his management being marked in all" its stages with the highest intelligence and sterling good sense. The teachers were se lected with wisdom, and in Miss Julia A. laird of North Yarmouth, Maine, they secured a teacher for the high school whose ample qualifications for her position leave nothing to lie desired The school consisted originally of some six grades, the highest comprising those who could read smoothly in one of the lower readers, and included arithmetic and geography in a small way; while the largest portion of the scholars were in the alphabet or spelling out words of one or two syllables. The school was so well managed that, with the personal exertions of the teachers with the parents, the children were not only induced to be regular and prompt in attendance, but continued term after term; and there are many now in the high school whom we fa.v in the school nearly two years ago. The grade of studies has been, of course, greatly raised in the high school, so that now those of the second grade—interme diate—are abovo what were at first, required in the high school. , This school was originally started by what was called the Freedmen’s Aid Society, but, merged last year in the Union Commission, is now called the “New York Branch.” They purchased a lot on M. street, between Six teenth and Seventeenth streets, and erected a large scoool-house, divided into eight fine school-rooms, taking possession at the begin mng of the present school term. They have on the lot also two school-houses, each design Apartment, and the schoofis therefore in ten departments or grades. The rooms are full, and altogether accommodate about six hundred scholars.

Trial of Mufes. , A trial of fire-proof safes came off yesterday in Lincoln Park, in this city. There were three safes; one of the Tremont Company’s, Marland’s patent, No. 6; one of Tilton & Mc Farland’s, No. 9; and another of tho same make and size, containing Sanborn's steam im provement, all new safes; and a sheet iron trunk, 16 x 20 inches, also containing Sanborn’s improvement. These were all placed in a row, the two containing the steam apparatus be tween the other two. Palters were placed in each of theso safes and in the trunk, and fires were kindled soon after 6 o’clock in the morning. At 12 o’clock we visited the place and found the fires briskly burning, men being engaged in heaping wood upon them. At that time smoke was issuing from the outside safes, and steam from the centre one; the trunk wo could not see, for it was buried up in live coals to the depth of near a foot. Between two and three o’clock in tho afternoon the fires were raked, and the safes and trunk allowed to cool off. At half past five o’clock in the afternoon tlio trunk and safes were opened in the presence of the committee, and a large concourse of citizens. The trunk was opened first, and the contents, which were in a small tin box, placed inside of the trank, were all safe—not a paper being singed or even smoked, and the tin box bore no marks of fire. The water in the me talic tubes was not exhausted, showing that steam could have been generated for a much longer time. The next one opened was the Marland safe. The papers were all destroyed and tho wood work was all charcoal. Then the Tilton & McFarland safe, without the steam apparatus, was opened, and the moment the inner door was opened a sheet of fire broke out, which burned uutil all the wood work was consum ed. The last one opened was the Tilton & McFar land safe with Sanborn’s apparatus. The pa pers enclosed in the tin box inside were in per fect order, and so were those in the wooden drawer. The fire seemed not to have touched the inside of the safe, and the water in tho tubes was not exhausted. The trial appeared to give satisfaction to all who witnessed it. We presume the commit tee, which was composed of some of our most prominent citizeus, will make a report upon the matter.

Farm for Sale.—We call the attention of our readers to the advertisement, in another column, of tho well-known Cushman Home stead. It is anything and everything a man can desire in the shape of a farm or country home. If the old adage, “variety is the spice of life,” be true, certainly this is a rare oppor tunity for any gentleman deficient in “spicy qualities.” Even at this season, one is imme diately impressed with its convenience, beauty and excellence; but a review of it in autumn convinces at once of its high value and sur passing qualities. Never before offered for sale. Snow storms, wind nor rain have so far pre vented large audiences from visiting the fa mous Tableaux of the Apocalypse and Paradis6 Lost. The longer it remains, the more it be comes engrafted in public favor. All classes are attracted by its marvellous’excellence, who with one voice speak in raptures of its beauty and grandeur. The matinee to be given on Saturday will no doubt again draw a full house, and to the ladies unable to attend in the evening, this is a grand opportunity for them. Saturday night being advertised as the last gives all warning of its speedy close. Narrow Escape.—Wedneslay afternoon a runaway horse, attached to a sleigh, was racing through Portland street, and in attempt ing to turn up Hanover street, passed between a staging and a building, on the corner of tho street, tearing dowh a large portion of the staging. On the other part of the staging, which was some thirty feet from the ground, three men were at work, and the spectators who witnessed the scene expected to see them dashed to the earth. But that portion provi dentially stood, the workmen standing thun derstruck at the wreck around them. Select Re adino.—Those who were so fortu nate as to gain admission to the reading given by Miss Isabel J. Prince on Monday evening, at the pleasant rooms of Drs. Kimball & Prince, No. 11 Clapp’s Block, were highly gratified with the entertainment, and trust that the public will at an early day be favored with an opportunity to hear this new star, whose tal ent is second to none in the country. * The Storm. A northeasterly snow storm set in yesterday morning and continued through the day. Several inches of snow havo fallen, and wheels have given place to runners. The weather was cold and blustering. The noon train from Boston was delayed about 45 minutes, and the evening train about two hours and a half. The trains on the Grand Trunk and Eastern roads were on time. Mr. Morse’s Lecture.—The"lecture by Mr Morse, on Natural History, which was to have been delivered last evening, is postponed to next Thursday evening.

The social gathering of State Street Church and Parish, which was postponed on account of the storm, will occur this (Friday) evening. Refreshments received after 5 o’clock P? M. 1>R.

WE can with confidence point to FELLOW’S WORM LOZENGES as the most per tee f rem edy for those troublesome pests, INTESTINAL WORMS. After years of careful experiment, success has crowned our efi'orts, and we now offer to the world a confection without a single fault, being safe, con venient, effectual and pleasant. No injurious result can occur, let them he used in whatever quantity. Not a particle of calomel enters their comitosition. They may be used without further preparation, and at aiiy time. Children will eagerly devour all you give them, and ask for more. They never fail in ex pelling Worms from their dwelling place, and they will always strengthen the weak and emaciated, even when he is not afflicted with worms. Varions remedies have from time to time, been re commended, such as calomel, oil of worm seed, turp entine, &c., producing dangerous, and somet imes tatill consequences. Afrer much research, study and ex periments, embracing several years, the proprietors of Fellow’s Worm Lozenges, have succeeded in pro ducing this remedy, free from all objections, and posi tively safe, pleasant and effectual. They do not kill the worms, but act by making their dwelling place disagreeable to them. In order to assure consumers of the genuineness of these lozenges, the analysis of Dr. A. A. HAYES, State Assayer, is annexed: “I have analyzed the Worm Lozenges, prepared by Messrs. FELLOWS & CO., and find that they are free from mercury, and other metallic or mineral inai ter.

Tb* Sanborn Fire-Prowf Safe an Fire ! ! ! THE DECEPTION EXPOSED ! I \\ v deem it but just to ourselves, ami due to (hoeo who may have wiles of our manufacture, to notify them and the public generally, because a smell safe oi the Marlmd Patent has been burned in Lae late demonstration on the Back Bay lands, that toere is no Cause for a hiss of confidence in its merits—but ou the contrary, when all the facts becorao kaown, we think the result will be cre.iltnblo to the Ma.laml e Iw11* 1. Wo propose to expose a few oi the attempt oil deceptions, and the unfair means employed in this demons ration, and leave the pub lic to stigmatise them what they please. Mr. Sanborn says, “ these six safes were all new and wai ranted.” This, so tar as tho Mar land safe Is concerned, is a falsehood. Wo never did “war rant* a safe. The Marl and sate uso.l at the burn ing w ts a second hand safe, built not less than tour years since. Neither \vusitt:s safe that was ex hibited in the streets as the one to bo burned. The safe exhibited was a larger sale, (No. 5,) of more re cent build. The one burned was a smalls: (No. 2) and second hand, where or how obtained we know not, but not bought from us, nor bad we any knowl edge l hat we wore to be represented in the demon - stralion, uni il by accident hearing of the sales being exhibited iu the street. Sanborn's friends made three ckmil* stine efforts to buy safes from us, but were un successful. From several parti os wl,o were on the ground and witnessed tho proceedings, we learn at an early stage of tho burning the Sanborn impromd safe sho wed evident si^u* oi destruction, the back of the safe opening for quite a distance, theaoor bulgin ' out, and consequently the fire around It was inmteui* aiely reduced, anil tho safe allowed to cooldown; and from eye witnesses it has been stated to us at no time through the day w as tho tire around U raised to the rigiiial point. The smaller safes stood embedded in live coals one qu:uri or their height, and tho liarnes enveloped them wholly, while the bottom of ibe largo sate and tho Sanborn Improved were barely reached with tho coals, and the dames barely covered half the safe.— The San bora safe was in the moat favorable position, at the windward end of the line, where* il received the* cold air constantly. Tho Mar land was in the most exposed place, at the leeward end of tho lino, where it received all the escaping boat from the ifre above it. It was openly stated by numerous parties on the ground, that “the little safes hail a great deal more tire than tho large ones,” and upon soma persons stating this to the parties conducting tho burning, a tragic rush would be made with one stick ot wood toward the large safes, and thrown at them In such a manner as in inauy instances u> help the tire around the smaller safes most. At several hours through the day wo saw tho con dition of the tire to be the same, the smaller sates re ceiving the most determined efforts at destruction, while the large ones, in the most favored position, were simply being kepi warm. From what we our selves witnessed, it is our iirm belief that had the same amount of tire been kept around the large safe* as was first started in the morning, those safes would have been destroyed early lu the day, and that noth ing but the reduced condition of tho fire and their fa vored position prevented it. As late as 2 o’clock the Marland safe showed n v ap parent signs of disruption, the iron vrark holding lu HhnjH- perfectly. It was remarked by parttes witnets iug iraeondiMoii, “that safe is giving them the most trouble,” and since tho result we have been compli mented by parties wholly d Siniereeted upon the man ner our safe resisted the effects of the heat. Though it was announced at the outset by the j*arties con ducting the affair that ‘‘that safe was to be burned anyhow,” and for certain once in th * day it was caued out, “burn that end safe,” it was the last to yield. This was the manner the aflfcir was conducted from ! the beginning, but the CBOWNTKO JMW1FTION was reserved for the hist, and most skilfully was it con ducted. . . The doom of the “little sates had been exultlngly announced by Sanborn from the top of each. When he reached the first large sale and the door opened, the liames burst out. The Sanborn Improved v next opened, a part of the papers taken out, and tho door hastily closed again, but not soon enough to pre vent at least three, persons seeing the SAFE w AS ON FI HE INSIDE, IN THE LOW A LEFT HAND COKNEK, and upon the request of s gentleman near it to open the door again, Sanborn save “no, keep It shut; it is all right,” and concluded the larce by ex claiming, “1 have obtained what the world has long sought for, a tire proof sate,” while It was in firnu» under his feet.
