THE PRESS. Friday Morning. March 15. 1867. l.rgiiimnte Argument. To the Editor of the Press: There is no argument in denunciation; none in vituperation or mere personal assaults up on individual character. It would be well if this fact were never lost sight of tu dealing with important measures; measures having impor tant ! .curing upon the public weal. At the pres ent moment, in this State ami Massachusetts, there is perhaps no subject involving moral is sues,-engrossing more of public attention than thut of Temperance, or the means by which it can be best promoted. On this subject the best men are divided in opinion- In the latter State this remark is particularly true. A strong effort is being made to change the poli cy which for several years has obtained there, by substituting a stringent license system for that of prohibition, and the readers of the Press have had laid heiore them quip. a fu]| synopsis oi the testiinouy given by the peti * tioners,—those who unpose prohibition and ask for license,—and doubtless the other side, when the testimony is all given, wi)l be served tip in the same manner. «o far as 1 have been able to discover, the investigation has been conducted with the ut most decorum and propriety, and the testimo u> ol witnesses lias been singularly free from offensive language er personal allusions. They have stabid the facts and results of their own observations, and given their own impressions of the workings of the law, and of what they expect to gain by a change of policy. All this has been perfectly legitimate, and uieu oc cupying respectable positions in society, sum moned before such an inquisition as that con stituted by the Massachusetts legislature, have a right to expect at least decent treatment from those who take occasion to comment upon their testimony and position. It is to he regretted that such has not in all cases been tho fact. A paper before me. a respectable political paper, takes occasion to represent the petitioners for a change in the law as liquor-dealers and their sympathizers, and even the witnesses—clergymen, physi cians, college professors, men of letters and men of business, judges, mayors and ex-may ors, &e. &c.,—are held up as men bought up by tho liquor-dealers’money! and the counsel em ployed by the petitioners arc stigmatized in th3 same elegant style. I have only to say that such is not argument; not even severe or smart, for its absurdity takes away both ita smartness and its severity. The same authori ty intimates that all tho daily papers of Bos ton except one, the Adcertiser, the Transcript and the Journal included, have been subsi dized by the liquor dealers, and bought over with their money to serve the interests of rum and ruin. Now in offset to such wholesale denun ciation, and such a convenient method of dis posing of unpleasant facts, I wish to oppose tho courteous, gentlemanly and candid remarks of Mr. Huntington bf Salem, when opening the case fur the friends uf prohibition before the legislative committee. I copy from the Transcript: He had the highest respect for the gentlemen called to testify for the petitioners, represent ing a numerons body of the people of the high est character and respectability iu all parts ol the Commonwealth. They and wo are agreed as to the necessity of suppressing dram shops, as they now exist in tho State. These most ■worthy gentlemen, having the same stake in the community as we do, differ with us as to the modes, means and devices. Mr. Hunting ton averred that lie had no sympathy with the feeling that would deny to petitioners the ad vantages of the best talents, and he would de fend the right oi any counsel to advocate their cause without censure or criticisui. Nothing is to be gained tor any good cause by misrepresenting the facts in the case, for misrepresentation is not argument. The cler gymen who have testiHed before the legisla tive committee have been the objects of spe cial malediction for coming to tho rescue of the dum interests. Perhaps they deserve it. It is none of my business to enter upon their de fence, hut when in order to bring markod re proach upon them facts are perverted, it is only fair that the statement of the facts Bhould be set right. A few days siuce a reuioustranee against a change of the law, headed by Rev. Dr. Neale, was presented in the legislature, en dorsed as “the petition of 15ii clergymen of Boston and its vicinity against a license law.” It appears that many of the names attached are those of clergymen from distant portions of the State, and that of 127 clergymen settled in Boston only 27 signed the remonstrance. An analysis of the remonstrance shows the follow ing figures relating to the settled clergymen of Boston, ol the leading sects, represented nu it. Of 12 Baptist clergymen 4 signed 8 did not; Congacgational Trinitaaians. 0 signed and 6 did not; Unitarians,signed, 19 did not; Method ists, 10 signed, (i did not; Presbyterians, 1 sign ed, 5 did not; Univerealists, 3 signed, 1 did not. Out of 18 Episcopal clergymen of the city not one signed the remonstrance. I do not give these facts to censure or to praise the signers or the'non-signer. Whether the action either way lias been or is to be put down to the credit of the actors, I express nO opinion, but I do insist that such facts are hardly consistent with the idea that all who do not come out in opposition to license are in the interest of the liquor dealers and have been corruptly bought up with their money. I do not believe any such thing. Tf it he true that the men who prefer license to prohition io Massachusetts an- all corrupt, and have actual ly sold themselves to the liquor dealers, then there was never more occasion than at present for the prayer—1"God save the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.” A Kriknd of Temperance. nigh Rents will drive People nl «£ Town. Who’s to blame for it, Mr. Trowel? Not tin rich landlord, to he sure! Oh no,—he must pay the highest price for lumber aud ail other building material and also three to five dollars a day for labor and, from two to three per cent, taxes, oue per cent. Insurance, and the money invested is worth 7-.'J0 sure. Now add it all together, ami it will loot up about twelve per cent. A building that cost $10,000 (twice the cost of five years ago) ought to let for $1200, to pay as well as 7-30s, and every man has just as good a right to get the best price for his mon ey, as for his labor; so you see, Mr, Trowel, if by a combination of the carpenters, ma sons and painters, wages are more than doub led, and land holders are obliged to build, “whether or no,’’(which is not exactly the case this year) there seems to be reason for believ ing, as many do, that “trades unions’’ must share a part of the blame, not only for keeping up rents but for the high prices of the neces saries of life as well .as everything else. The grocer must ppy three fold more for bis rent than formerly, and consequently charge, more for his commodities, or move out of town where he he can live cheaper! and so with every other branch of trade and all profes sions. If the expense of living has been in creased by combinations or associations, so that people are obliged to move away, there will surely he less demand for houses and stores, even at much lower rents. I know, Mr. Trowel, it is not just tlie thing for mechanics to work for old prices and every thing else remain as it is; but there must he a starting point, a commencement for the down grade, and the (proper place igon the highest eminence. Cut off a little of the hill and dump it, and before long the grade will he even, and everything will run smoothly—hut if the earth Is taken from the lowest part of the ascent aud piled up on the summit, the train must stop, and the passengers will lake souie other route. “Well, Mr. Lowreut, you talk very plausible to us mechanics about our high prices for la bor, and our combinations kwping up tine prices of everything else; ajsl kindly advise us to ,bc the first to commence the down grade, because our prices are the highest; Is that your meaning, sir?" You can take is as you please; If busi ness lags, anl building up t.he burnt dis trict does not progress as rapidly as you desire, don't blame the owners of the land. If wages, (of day laborers) plasterers, masons and paint ers, should he but half what will be ‘‘demanded after the first of April,” don't blame anybody but voursehes for hoisting the cnsign-'LlI a loaf better than none.” ^ m i r M» vTUfH* morning Mr. Trowel, I will see you again the Rr,t of ^ I‘Kraut Isjwrent. Author of ihelnnt %>(o. It seems, says tlie Jersey City Times, that. Mr. Johnson’s veto of the Reconstruction bill was written by Jerry Black, It certainly was appropriate that the man who, as Attorney General, demonstrated to James Buchanan, the impossibility of coercing a State in the Un iou, should lie the chosen instrument of Andy Johnson to prove that Congress cannot com pel the rebels to come back into it. The Bame paper from which we have quoted from above expresses the sensible hope that, a8 Boon as Congress adjourns, the ablest debaters of the Republican party in that body will go South, and from the rostrum explain to the misguided people of that section the true is sues before them. Let them understand that Congress is actuated only by a desire to securo the permanent peace and welfare of the coun try.

About eight o’clock last evening a small temporary wooden building on Congress Street near Franklin St., owned by Mr. Tlioe. Sinnott, an! occupied by him as a grocery shop, was discovered to* be on fire. The building was ruined and its contents destroy ed. Mr. S. bad *000 insurance in the Com merce office, Albany, at tho agency of J. H. Webster, which will about cover his loss. The fire caught irom the stove as is supposed. Washington Hook and Ladder Company with their new truck were the first at the fire. The engines had just got back to their houses and fixed up, when another alarm was sound ed. It proved to be at the tannery of Mr. J. S. Bicker, in the rear of Green Street near Dcering’s Oaks, and in the bark shed which contained upwards of TOO cords of bark. The fire was in the bark a short distance from the western end of the shed, and was evidently, the work of an inceudiary. So solid was the bark packed that it was with 4he greatest diffi culty access to the fire could be had. The western end and a portion of one side of the Bhed were torn down, and tho bark was thrown out until the firemen were driven out by the ■moke. boon alter the flames broke out. These were subdued by water, and the work of removing the hark was recommenced. When we left the place, at 12 o’clock, the firemen were busily en gaged in removing it, but the smoke that is sued from the pile in the building showed that the fire hail uot been quenched. Mr. Ricker had no insurance on the property. Lecture on Natural History.—A select »nd appreciative audience, greater in point of numbers than might have been expected on so uokl a night, greeted Mr. Morse’s first lecture on Natural History last evening, and listened with much interest to his clear and attractive exposition of his favorite topic. The special theme of this the opening lecture was the low “r forms of animal life, the Protozoa and the Hadiates. Many very interesting facts were developed in relation to the Polyps, tho eoral milders and sponge-makers; and the sin gular habits of the Jelly-fishes, their curious modes of feeding, of locomotion and of repro duction were described with some detail. The lecturer referred briefly to the principle which guides the naturalists iu assigning the relative rank of different creatures iu the scale of ani mal life—the recognition of an analogy between the young of the ltjgher typo and the adult forms of a type that is lower. This analogy he promised, to still further illustrate in a future lecture. Mr. Morse's explanations are singularly clear; he does not deal in technicalities, but uses terms which all can understand. His illustra tions are happy; and his rapid and graceful de lineations upon the blackboard heighten the interest ol the scientific facts he presents. His lectures offer an opportunity of combining pleasure with instruction snch as should not be allowed to pass unimproved. Mhip.Huilifcr’i) Convrnlion. The corporators of the Maine Ship-builder's and Ship-owner’s Association held a meeting Thursday afternoon at the Merchants’ Ex change, for the purpose of taking measures to effect an organization.

Because at the recent municipal elections in Troy, Lansinburg and Rochester, owing to purely local causes, the Republican strength was divided and the Democrats obtained the plurality of the votes, the N. Y. World claims a great reaction in public sentiment in favor of its party. “The tVle is turning,” it exclaims, and though the victories “are not so complete as we wish they were, they show that the peo ple are beginning to realize the necessity of stemming the torrent of Radicalism which has engulfed Congress and threatens to carry the the nation along with it." After explaining the causes of these local re actions, and directing the World’s attention to Bangor, Portland and the charter elections in this State, and of a republican triumph in Newport, Kentucky, and the election of a Republican Mayor in that dark corner of Democrat Egypt-Cario, 111.,—the N. Y. Times sensibly remarks In truth, there is no chance of success for the Democratic party in the North until it cast ofi its Copperhead leaders and constructs a platform in harmony with the loyal resolves and aspirations of the American people. Con necticut and New-Hampshire have furnished illustrations of the fact that the Democratic or ganization is still controlled by men who sym pathized with the rebels, aud now oppose the im position of conditions upon the rebel States. The Kentucky Democrats, meeting in Conven tional at Frankfort, marie no secret of their pur poses and affinities. They singled out tor honor prominent and avowedly unrepentant rebels, and their position is equivalent to an assertion of the right, of the excluder] States to resume at once, aud without conditions or qualifica tions of any kind, their places in Congress. The Kentucky Democrats and the Democrats of Connecticut and New-Hampshire, as well as the New-York admirers ofthe World, belong to the same organization. Their principles are identical. Their policy is the same. And while these things continue they will find their efforts to turn the tide of Northern opinion ineffectual. The President's veto message on the Military Government Bill may he the ex cellent campaign document which the World declares it to he. But a dozen messages will not couvince the Union majority of the na tion that the Democratic Party may Is- safely trusted, in view of recent Democratic speeches and platforms, and especially in view of the Frankfort demonstration in support of treason and traitors. SciaBl, Now Is as good a time as any to cut scions for grafting in the spring. They should be taken from the body of the tree, and from up right branches. If cut from tbe low, horizon tal limbs, they will never make a top that points heavenward. The scions should be twigs of the last year's growth, well ripened and not injured by the severe frosts of win ter, whereby they may have thus been winter killed. Much depends upon the health of the scion; if teeble or half-ripened, it will not live to amount to anything. Nor is this all. Scions, to do well should receive the circulation from tbe stock as soon after they are set as possible. If the weather proves dry, the scion exposed to the naked sun and wind will, in a few days, become shrivelled, and the sap cannot move into its veins. It needs as wet or moist wea ther to set scions into stocks, as it requires for the successful transplanting of vegetables in tbe soil. We have lost more labor in grafting by dry weather afterwards, than by any other cause. Scions cut now, before the sap starts, wil keep alive till required for use, and, if proper ly preserved, may be sent great distances by mail or otherwise. For home use, the best way is to wrap them in a piece of canvas or coarse cloth,saturated with water and lay them away in some cool place in the cellar, or they may be buried in sand out of doors. Some recommen I inserting the butt end in split po tatoes, which is not a bad plan. This will preserve the moisture ofthe bark and prevent drying up. Tbaxi. While W filer*. In July, 1854, Captain Kingman, of the Shooting Star, Bailed through a remarkable patch of white water, which he thus de scribes: ‘T have seen,” he says, “what is call ed white water,in about all the known oceans and seas in the world, but nothing that could compare with this in whiteness or extent.— Although we were going at the rate of nine knots, the ship made no noise at either bow or stem. The whole appearance of the ocean was like a plain covered with snow. There was scarce a cloud in the heavens, yet the sky for about ten degrees above the horizon, ap peared as black as if a stoi m was raging.— The stars of the first magnitude shone with a feeble light, and the Mi'ky Way of the beav eus was almost eclipsed by that through which we were sailing. The scene was one of awfrI grandeur; the sea having turned to phosphorous, and the heavens being hung in blackness, and the stars going out, seemed to indicate that nature was preparing tor that grand conflagration which we are taught to believe is to annihilate this material world.” The white water extended over twenty miles, and was divided longitudinally through the centre by a strip of dark water about half a mile in width. A quantity of the white wa ter, when put into a tatik,appeared to be alive with luminous worms. These, when caught in the hand, emitted light until brought near a lamp, when nothing con’d be seen. Exam ined under a glass, they seemed to be merely bits of jelly-like substance—evidently acule pliw, as they had the power of expanding and contracting themselves. These gelatinous worms, living and dead, often convert, by their phosphorescent light, the surface of the ocean into one vast sheet of fire. Crinoline in France.—A Paris letter to the London fashion journal called The Queen, lias the following: For some momlis past tbomuch-a’mscd crin oline has been gradually decreasing iu its di mensions, and the new torm of skirt has neces sitated a total change in its form Cages now measure round the edge from two yards and a half to two yards and three-quarters in width; there are no steels whatever at the top, and above the cage a well gored narrow white pet ticoat is worn, and above this a second white petticoat, which is elaborately trimmed. As thfl fashion for long trains necessitates the* fre fluent exhibition of the petticoat when moving about a room, this second skirt is frequently ornamented with Valenciennes lace and rich embroidery. These undergarments prove very costly; so the more moderate substitute for those rich decorations a trellis-work termed with fine white braid, and a star embroidered in satin stitch in the center ef every lozenge of the trellis-work. This ornament is braided and embroidered iu the flounce ef the jiet ticoat, and is very easily worked. Petticoats lor evening wear are made within an inch its long as the dresses, and it should be liorne in mind that the train of a skirt now measures at the very least three quarters of a yard. —Madame Annade la Grange, who is re membered throughout America as one of the most reliable and capable of our foreign prima donnas, writes from Italy that she intends to visit the United States during the spring, at which time she proposes to take her farewell of the lyric stage. .

Witli tlie uponing or the new )w wt prewnted to the readers of the DAILY PI1ESS, A Paper Enlarged lo the size of the largest New England Dailies. The enlargement of our dally edition is equivalent to the addition of between three and four column* to its size. This additional space w ill be devoted to tie tails ot important events, which we have heretofore been obliged to give in brief, and to selection* front current literature, grave or gay, such os we Lave lately been obliged to omit altogether. What the character of the paper thus enlarged will be, its past history will show. The Press was es tablished primarily to represent the Republican par ty of Maine. It was impossible Ibr the controlling party of the State to remain voiceless in this city. The Press will continue to defend the principles of the Liberal party of America. The war has closed one great cycle in our national history—the cycle during which aristocracy at the South and demoorar cyat the North grew up side by side, a period ot jealousy and conflict, resulting in un appeal to arms and the victorious supremacy of the democratic prin ciple. We have entered on a stat e of transition, which seems likely to prove longer than most ot us antici pated. The Press will insist upon a settlement which will secure the fruits of our victory. Nothing is settled till it is settled right. We must have de mocracy at the South as well a* at the North—equal rights fbr all secured by equal laws, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, impartial suffrage. Ot the profound convictions of the Republican party of Maine, tlie Press will remain a faithful exponent. We have engaged Regular Correspondents in Washington, New York, Bo*ton and Augusta, and occasiomil correspondents at various points throughout the State. During the French Expo sition we shall publish Regular Letters from Paris, Where our Correspondent has already arrived. To the people of Maine, and especially to people who have business relations with Portland, we hope to make the Press more valuable than any |»apcr published outside of the State can possibly be. We shall publish the same telegraphic summary as other New England m:wspaj»ers. We shall not publish special dispatches from Washington, but we shall have regular correspondence from that point, and a I>»Uy Summary of Maine News which readers here would be sorry to miss. We shal have Full anil Accurate market Heparin, forwarded by telegraph from al’ parts of the United States, from Canada, and irom England. A weekly Review ot the Portland Markets and an accurate Report of ltlniar Mkipping, in foreign and domestic ports, will bo published m here to tore.

[From the Portland Advertiser, Jan. 2.1 The Daily Press appeared yesterday morning In an enlarged form. It is now fully equal in size to any daily paper in New England. In the arrangement ot reading matter it has returned to the original style which we think quite an improvement in its appear ance.

This evidence of prosperity on the part of so good and reliable a paper as the Press is gratifying.
