THE PBE88J Saturday Morning, March 16, 1867. The Echo devotes more than two columns to the Press, but alter looking it through with some care we find but little calling lor extended remark. Oi course it persists in misrepresen tation of the action of this paper, as the follow ing samjllb shows: Why quote from those papers which always have been bitterly opposed to prohibition, and commend their opinion as of great weight, and worthy 01'care till consideration. For Instance | it quotes from the Boston Transcript ss author ity ibr temperance men to form their opinio We have regarded and still regard the Bos ton Transcript as one of the fairest an mos high-minded papers on our exchange list, with out stopping to inquire whether it has been an advocate of prohibition or not. Indeed we do not know its antecedents in tins regard, nor do we feel disposed to engage in investigating them. But when it is said that we quoted the Transcript “as authority for temperance men to form their opinion by," we deny “the soft im peachment.” We would no more quote it tor such a purpose than we would the Echo or any other paper. A man who pins his “temperance opinions” to the sleeve of any paper is but a poor stick after all to build the temple of total abstinence. His opinion must take hold ol something more substantial thau this. We quoted the Transcript as a fair, candid and re sponsible paper, uot as a standard for other men to conform their opinious to, but on a question of fact;—uo less a fact than the repu tation of men who had been summoned before a legislative tribunal to testify in relation to a matter affecting the public weal, and for no other purpose. The Echo, by way of a slur, speaks of the Press as “a professed temperance paper," and then labors to convict it of inconsistency in quoting as a friend of temperance such a man as Rev. Dr. Adams. In the first place the Press never professed to be a temperaneo paper. It is a political paper, and so far as the temjter iange cause is concerned, “professes”only to treat it with all fairness, and to throw its influence on the side of sobriety and good order. Beyond this we deny the right of the Echo to call it to account. In the next place, we must confess to a fooling of queerness in being upbrided for quoting simply as “a friend of temperance,” a distinguished Doctor of Divinity in the goodly cily of Boston. We did not suppose the ebrsi tian church of to-day, especially the Congrega tional orthodox branch of it in Boston, held within its regular communion aud fellowship D. Ds. who are not friends of temperance, nor do we now. We believe a man may be a good mau and friend of temperance, and still oppose the policy of prohibition; and to show this ex actly, and nothing more, we quoted two Doc tors of Divinity, viz: Messrs. Adams and Blag dcn. .But we may have labored under mis take; on this point we are willing for others to decide. Une other paragrapn trom the Echo is all that wo need quote at this time; all that we feel called upon to notice: If the Press would not ho understood as fa voring license, why does it so carefully collect, publish aud apparently commend every opin ion given against prohibition, without giving facts and opinions in its favor, unless specially requested to? It seems very singular to our friends that we did not give both sides when the testimony on one side only was put into the case. In all such cases the testimony on one side is made np and completed before the other side is given at all. The hearing of the friends of prohibi bitiou has only just commenced. For the pur pose we avowed in the start, we are not called upon in fairness to give ttie other side at all, and yet we have from the first intended to do It. We gave the testimony against prohibi tion, as we have stated, not to make out a case, but only to show how good men differed, and that a reaction more or less extensive had tak en phioe in the public mind. This /act has been sustained by the testimony already giv en, and it could be only from a gratuitous dis position to find fault that any oue would, in view of all the tacts, pen such a paragraph as the last above quoted from the Echo. Our neighbor winds up his notice of this pa p t by putting the question, in asortofeon tiissorlal tone, “But how will the Press vote?” Aud it nieTT Tc .m u. ‘‘Wa submit that it is hut lair that its readers should kuiyv wkacu ,, I,. Press stands upon this question, aud whether the facts and opinions selected as information in regard to the law, are clipped by an honest friend or a secret foe of Prohibition?” The above is decorous, gentlemanly and courteous, of course, and tbe writer no doubt feels that such a “style” entities him to walk into the secret recesses of onr being and to know and to sit in judgment on our proposed action. We, however, differ from him, and simply suggest that, as it is our privilege to do so, we shall vote precisely asonr own judgment dictates, or not at all if we prefer to do so. Our vote cannot settle a principle, and may ho of very little worth, still, as we live in a free country wo regard it as our own, and we shall dispose of it as we think best; if to the satis — faction of our confessor of the Echo, well; if not, we can’t help it. And now in taking leave of our friends'of the Echo— for we do not wish to refer to this mat ter again—we will simply say that if they think the cause of temperance will he promot ed by their coercive and denunciatory course toward other papers, let them pursue it; we have no faith in any such good results, and we happen to know tiiat some of the oldest, truest and longest-tried friends of temperance in this city regard their course preciselyas we do. So, geutleiuen, to borrow your owu language, hav ing paid your money you can take your choice of peace or war, with the war all on your side. Relief for the Somh, The ladies of the New York Southern Belief Association have issued an appeal for money and grain, to freight the United States ship Dunbarton, now lying at Brooklyn Navy Yard, at the service of the Association. The Dunbar ton is the second national vessel which has been placed at the disposal of the charitable people of New York. The steamer Memphis has al ready sailed for South Carolina and Georgia, with 13,000 bushels of grain. In these two States alone Gen. IIoward’3 report submitted to the Senate hist Saturday puts the number of persons who willj need help before the next crop can relieve them, at 33,500, so that the bounty of the Memphis amounts to hut little more than half a bushel apiece for the needy of two States out of eleven. In all the Southern States, it is estimated by Gen. Howard, there are 50,900 destitute persons. These figures ought to furnish sufficient ground for the exercise of that large charity which twenty years ago went out from this country to starving Ireland, which during our civil war organized the Sanitary aud Christian Commissions, which last summer relieved our own distresses here in Portland, which in short has ever been and we hope will ever continue to be an honor to tbe American name. The appeal of the ladies of New York closes as fol lows: AVitli tlie opening of the spring, which brings to us the coming of new hope and new life, the people of a r«giou at the South, more than equal in area to til- Empire of Franco, arc entcrim' not figuratively but literally, the Valley ol the Shadow of Death. lu parts of five states, the crops of three successive years have failed.

Mr. Editor:—Tour correspondent this morning criticises the manner hi which tho witnesses against prohibition in Massachusetts have been spoken of by some newspaper wri ters. It may be that this criticism is just. But there arc some facts that should be Consid ered 1 shore even "denunciations” should be de nounced. 1. The evils resulting from the liquor traffic arc appa long. They meet the eye and ear in every place. The suffering, and sorrow, and crime that directly iluw from this trade can never half be told. The evil is admitted. What is tho remedy f Incense ’ has been tried for centuries. Its failure has been proved by an experiment tried so long that the memory of man can scarcely find its beginning. Prohibition” is now on trial. Against a fu rious ami unscrupulous opposition, it has stood for the little period of fifteen years,—sometimes receding, sometimes advancing. Admitting tliatit is an experiment, who cannot see that it cannot bo tested in the brief span of a few years? And yet "distinguished men” would have us believe that, as an experiment, it has been fully tried! ?. In this controversy, there are two parties, directly'opposed to each other. Nearly all the active temperance men are for “prohibitiou.”— All the rumsellers in the country are against it. Many men take no part in tile controversy.— But these "highly respectable” meu in Massa chusetts, who have testified against prohibi tion, by so doing enter the lists, and put them selves, on this question, by the side of rumsellers; using the same arguments; holding tho same opinions; asking for the same thing. It is not “denunciation” to state this fact. Andjif such men fiud their position unpleasant, it is of their own choosing. 3. Especially have they no reason to com plain, when it is remembered that they volun tarily come forward to aid the liquor dealers in their struggle to overthrow tho prohibitory law. Ministers, lawyers, doctors, editors, pro fessors, all put their public characters, and high social position into the contest, in favor of the liquor dealers, in a movement originated and supported by them, against the main body of temperance men. This, also, is a simple fact. Nor is it varied by the fact that these men are reputed to be the “friends of temperance." It is for this very reason that the liquor dealer wants their testimony, and they know it. With this question in issue, and the lines thus drawn, if such men see fit to go into the fight, and take sides with the rumseller, they have no right to complain that their names are pub lished in the muster rolls. The maxim “nosci tur a sociis” still is current among men. t. me wsumun; oi uiese men, on me ques tion in controversy, is of no value. The evil is admitted; and the question is one of remedy. How shall the liquor traffic be stopped t These men have never engaged in the work ol trying" to stop it; and they have no practical knowl edge on the subject. And the simple truth may as well be told; except partially, many of them do not want it stopped. They do not pro fess to want it stopped. The Harvard profes sors, who differ from European chemists in be lieving alcohol to be good as “iood,” partake of it as such. They, and Governor Andrew, and other men of that class, want grocers, and res taurant and hotel keepers, to sell it as iood, or drink. After Dr. Chickering preached a tem perance sermon in the Old South Church, Kev Dr.Blagden followed it with a sermon in favor of moderate drinking. It is perfectly well known that the upper classes in Boston and Cambridge drink liquors freely as a beverage. To state this fact is not “denouncing” the men. Mr. Sumner furnishes his table with rare old wines, and all the papers in the country speak of it. On some subjects his opinion would be of great weight, but he does not come forward as a witness, pretending to know the best way to put down the liquor traffic. And if other Boston gentlemen, including the M. D.’s, the D. D.’s, and the professors, had been as reti cent, they would not have been exposed to crit icism. But when they publicly announce their opinions, backed by high social and professmn al positions, upon a question of suppressing the traffic in liquors, the fact that they them selves use liquors, not merely as a medicine but as a beverage, is a “legitimate argument,” on the opposite side. Such men are not in fa vor of suppressing the traffic. Whether in Boston, m l'ortimkd, if they are modest, they will say little about temperance. And if they persist in offering their advioe, it is perfectly fair to place their practice over against their opinions. So at least it seems to one who is in favor of Prohibition. Death of William X,. Crowell. New York, March 13. 1867 To the Editor of the Press: The San Francisco papers which reached this city to-day by the steamer Ocean Queen, bring intelligence of the death in that city of Mr. William L. Crowell, a native of Bath, Maine, in the thirty-second year of his age. Mr. Crowell was a graduate of Bowdon Col lege in the class of I860. After teaching for a while in New-Hampskire, he entered the office of Hon. George Evans ,in Portland, as a stu dent, intending to make the practice of the law his life-work. In 1862, however, he went to the Pacific Coast, and led for a time a somewhat chequered life in California, and the adjacent territories. He was engaged in teaching, read ing and practicing law, etc., until the San Francisco Times was established in Novem ber, 1866, when he accepted a position as as sistant editor of that paper. Journalism, how ever, had long been more congenial to his tastes thaujthe practice of the profession upon which he had entered, and previous to his con nection with the Times he had been an occas ional contributor to some of the principal pa pers in SanFrancisco as.well as a correspondent of eastern journals. Of liberal education and extensive reading, liis stock of general informa tion was large, and from this he was enabled to draw aptly and readily. He was possessed,more over, of a lively and exuberant humor, which when occasion offered, added not a little to the point and force of his paragraphs. To such an extent was this true, that it had attracted attention and elicited encomiums in that city, where there are peculiar demands made upon the professi on. He thus gave abundant promise of a useful and honor able career, the attainment of which his early death has prevented. There are many ol his old friends, class mates and others,—in Portland, to whom in telligence of his death will bring pain. To such it will be pleasing to know that the friends he had in San Francisco speak kindly and tender ly and appreciatingly of him now that he has gone. The editor of the Bulletin writes that he was remarkably free from all vicious indulg ences, living soberly and temperately, impelled only by an honorable ambition for distinction in the calling which he had chosen.” And his associates of the Times, by whom he must have been most intimately and truly known,says; “Of unexceptionable character, with a most scrupulous sense of honor, and so strict a re gard for truth that it would not permit him to disguise his feelings or state the slightest thing which he did not believe, his personal charac ter was such as to endear him to a large circle of friends. His warm heart, ingeuious man ner, large fund of information, and keen ap preciation made him a most pleasant compan ion, aud by bis associates and friends his death will be most deeply felt.” * Important to Shipmasters. We call the attention of our exchanges in the lower Provinces to the act of Congress of Feb. 18,1897, by which the act ofMarch 2, 1799,—re quiring masters of vessels arriving from for eign ports, owned in whole or in part by citi zens ol the United States, to have correct and (rue manifests of all goods &c. on board, to he produced to the officer who may first hoard any such vessel, and a copy delivered at the Cus tom House at the port of destination,—has been extended to all vessels, foreign as well as Am erican. Masters of vessels who fail to comply with this law subject themselves to a forfeiture of all goods owued by or consigned to themselves, or to order, as well as to a heavy penalty.

We are perinittci by the writer to copy the following extract from a letter of his to An drew J. Graham, the leading New York pho nographic publisher: Paris, Maine, March 14,1867. Dear Graham:—You may be interest**! to learn how our new law introducing stenogra phy into the courts of this State works on its first reception. 1 am gratified to be able to state to you that it was put in operation in this county of Oxford two days since, when I was appointed Stenographer to the S. J. Court, being the first appointment under the law. The first case tried was lor malicious burning of two bams with their contents; the evidenco for the plaintiff, circumstantial; defence, posi tive testimony of an alibi. The case was vig orously contested, and it was expected to occu py two days intrying. The evidence was taken without any interruption in its flow; and the whole easel including the opening and closing arguments of counsel, discussion ot the ad missibility of testimony, the charge of the judge and the finding of the jury, was com pleted at a single sitting on Tin sday after noon. The result was a verdict for the plain tiff for damages, assessed at $1,800. I have al so taken testimony in divorce cases before the judge at chambers. There is no doubt that the introduction of short hand into the courts will greatly facilitate the trial of causes, saving to the judges the expenditure of so much of their vital energies in the mechanical, laborious, time-wasting and irksome matter of incessant note-taking; energies which can otherwise be more profitably employed for the public. It will at the same time, in some degree, lessen the expenses of the courts, The law uses the generic term stenographer; but it is well un derstood that phonography is the only system of stenography that will be employed in this State.

Friday.—Edward Walsh, Jr., was tried on the in dictment charging him with the larceny of a bank check tor $550, drawn by Messrs. Bailey & Noyes in favor of Theodore Johnson. The circumstances of the case havebeeu tully men tioned, and the evidence in tlie case did not alter them. Mr. Johnson testified that he lost the check on the evening ot the 31st ot January and gave notice at the Bank the next morning. Early on tlie morning of February 1st the check was presented at the Merchants* Bank by young Walsh, and payment was refused, Subsequently the check was taken possession of by some of the police officers, and a complaint was made against Walsh for having obtained it fraudulently. Walsh had previ ously commenced a suit against Messrs. Bailey & Noyes to recover the amount of the check—which suit is still pending. Walsh contends that he purchased the check ou the evening of January 31st of a stranger who came into his shop and purchased acoupleof pairs of boots, and that he, Walsh, gave him $545 in bills. He tes tified that he did not know the man, never saw him before, and has not seen hjjn since. The money which he gave him for the check belonged to his fath* •r, and had been taken out of the Savings Bank on that d*y, where it had been deposited for some time. He also testified that on the evening in question, he had closed the store, and between 9 and 10 o’clock re turned to get a pair of dancing boots, and while in the shop the stranger came in and he took the check from him. Some testimony was introduced from policemen, that Walsh’s shop was not re-opened that night—that they were in the vicinity of it, anil must have notic ed If the gas had been lighted, as Walsh testified. The testimony in the case was all put in and W. W. Thomas, Jr., Esq., commenced the argument for the defence. He had not finished it at the adjournment. Municipal Court. JUDGE KINGSBURY PRESIDING. Friday.—James Jjowry, John McDonald and Jas. Griffin, for larceny of old iron from the snip-yard of Ralph Kelly, paid fines of $5 each and the costs. D. H. Ingraham, Esq., appeared for the boys. R. R. Robinson, 6n a search and seizure process, pleaded not guilty, waived an examination, and ap pealed the case to the Supreme Judicial Court. Meyer Waterman was brought up on a search and seizure process. J, O'Donnell, Esq., appeared as his counsel. Meyer testified that he had given up the sale ot liquors, had not sold any tor two weeks, and that the liquors seized did not belong to him as he liad given away all that ho had when he shopped sell ing. The liquor seized was found iu a bag belonging to a woman, who was seen to leave the shop and throw the bag into a building in the rear of the shop, where the officers found it. Meyer was discharged. Johu Wall, Jr., on a search and seizure process, paid $22.26. Administrator’s Sale of Real Estate.— We were in error yesterday in stating that the iarrp^ —ra*j octixta the late Charles F Beckett was to take place yesterday, as may be seen by reference to advertisement under our auction head. The sale is to commence at 11 o’clock this forenoon, with the lot and unfinish ed building corner Congress and Smith streets. The main building here may be made into two elegant residences, and the lot will accommo date two others. As soon as the above sale is completed, the lot on the corner of Congress and Franklin streets, with a frontage of 106 feet on Congress and 80 feet on Franklin, will be sold. This has been partly occupied by an apothecary store for tliirty-five years,-and there is no locality in the city more eligible for carrying on the apoth ecary business. The sale of the fine lots corner of Vaughan and Fine streets will be at 3 o’clock in the af ternoon. These are directly opposite the beau tiful residence of the Hon. George W. Wood man, and in the neighborhood are some oi the most elegant mansion houses in the city. It is rarely that an opportunity is afforded for purchasing real estate in such desirable lo calities. Robbing a Safe.—The store of Mr. Eben Corey, iron merchant, was entered Thursday nigbfc, by raising an empty crate in the rear of the building and entering through one of the windows. The safe was then opened by means of false keys, and about $50 in money and a 7-30 bond for $100, dated Juue 15,1865, No. 17,760, stolen from it. The drawers in tho safe were broken open, and the lock of the small iron cash box inside the safe was forced. After obtaining the money and bond, the safe was re-locked and a small piece of zinc insert ed in the lock so that it could not be unlocked in the morning, and a lock-smith was obliged to be sent for. The debris of tlie wooden draw ers, and some bits of candle were found iu the counting room, which gave the first intelli gence that the safe had been robbed. It is sup posed the affair took place during the fire at the tannery. The School Girl’s Opera.—The hall of the Girl’s High School was closely tilled yes terday afternoon by the audience gathered to witness the performance ot the comic opera t“Pepita.” The young ladies ac quitted themselves very handsomely. The acting, the singing and the costumes were good, the action rapid, and the whole thing passed off with much spirit. Some of the “stage properties” showed much ingenuity of inven tion, and the orchestral performance, in which some very rare instruments were introduced elicited warm applause. It was a very pretty sight to see these sweet-faced young girls ruf fling like the swashbuckler gallants of the sen sation drama. The fencing bout and boat scene was as droll as anything could well be, and the whole play was a capital travesty on the in tense style of operas on the real stage. We are happy to learn that the young ladies have been induced to repeat their performance this afternoon at the same hour, three o'clpck. W e bespeak for them a full house. Organization op tiie School Committee. The Superintending School Committee has been organized as follows viz: Chairman—Nathan Webb. Secietary—S. B. Beckett. Executive Committee—Samuel R. Leavitt, M. A. Blanchard, Henry P. White. Committee on Construction—Josiah H. Drummond, William II. Shailer, Samuel R. Leavitt. island Committee—Charles B. Merrill, S. B. Beckett, Lewis B. Smith. An Imposter. A woman, calling her name Mrs. Fitch, is going the rounds of the city, ap pealing to the sympathies of the people of this city, representing that she lias nine children in a suffering condition. She lias obtained sums of money from various citizens. The fact is she is an imposter and there is no truth in her story. She belongs in Quebec, and is a beggar by profession. Let our citizens give her the cold shoulder and send her where she belongs. The G. F. C. s, which we presume may be rendered “Gay and Festive Chaps, (of both sexes,”) made their annual visit to Gorham on Thursday afternoon, and partook of a sumptu ous supper spread for the occasion,by Mr. 8. B. Brown, the popular landlord of the Gorham House. The party consisted of some forty or fifty ladies and gentlemen, who know liow to make and enjoy a good time, which they cer tainly had on this occasion. They went out and returned by special train, in charge of G. w. Woodbury, Esq., to whom, the thanks of the party we unanimously vote. A Testimonial, A few days since, Rev. O. P. Tuckertaan, of Preble street chapel, who is indefatigable in his efforts to alleviate the suffering condition of the poor and destitute in our city, was made the recipient of some valuable articles of silver ware. The following correspondence tells the story: Portland, March 6, 18(i7. We, the Teachers in the Sunday School at Preble Chapel, not connected with the Socie ty* beg leave to request Mr. and Mrs. Tucker man to accept the accompanying articles as an expression of their heartfelt interest and re gard. We know of your earnest and disinterested efforts in behalt of the poor aud distressed of our city, and how patiently you devote your time to ministrations in their behalf. We know, too, that you get your reward in the consciousness of duty well discharged, though we trust that the approbation of those engaged with you in a portion ot your work cannot be other than acceptable. We take this opportunity to congratulate you on the anniversary of your wedding day, lately reached,aud the 25th recurrence of that event. May the union»thus begun long remain un broken, and you be permitted yet for many years to pass along life together in the enjoy ment of the mutual confidence that has mara the quarter of a century just elapsed. Very truly yours,

Aug. K. Stevens, Superintendent. J. C. Noyes, and others. Rev. O. P. Tuckkkman and Wife. To the Superintendent and Teachers of Preble Chapel Sunday School:—"Esteemed Friends: Your note of March <>th, sent with valuable articles of silver, intended as an expression of your good wishes on having reached the 25th anniversary of our wedding, which occurred on the 22nd of Feb., is received. The gift is none the less acceptable because presented after the day bail passed. Rather we believe, that, had you known it, the gift you would theu have offered, would have beeu more a sincere token of respect, than from a mere matter of custom. We return to you all our sincere thanks for this expression of your affection and regards. Be assured that few can appreciate it more highly than ourselves, aud none are more keenly alive to the spirit which conceived it. And we most heartily reciprocate your con gratulations on having reached the the 25th anniversary of our married life. With our mutual good wishes, and a kind Providence permitting, endeavoring to live for others—not for ourselves alone; may it be ours to live aud enjoy life until the golden period arrives; and still onward in the future, may we live in that sinless state W'herc the inhabitants are repre sented as wearing golden crown, and singing with golden harps. Very truly yours O. P. and M. A.Tuckerman. Two Nights in Scotland. —On Monday evening next, at Deering Hall, Mr. Kennedy the celebrated Scotch balladist, will give tho first of his concerts in this city. He has re cently been delighting the Boston people with his entertainments, and the press of tliatoity speak of them in highest terms. We copy the following from the Journal, in relation to his last concert in that city: “This concert, like the preceding ones, was truly an enioyable affair. Mr. Kennedy gave in a powerful and effective manner the beauties of Scottish poetry and song. He has a rich tenor voice which is pleasant alike in singing and speaking, with dramat:c ability of no com mon degree, and united to these rare qualifica tions are an agreeable manner, a keen sense of the humorous, intelligence and discrimination. His introductions to the various songs are al ways pointed aud interesting, never so long as to become tedious, and oftentimes they are really eloquent. His sentimental songs arc de livered with great depth of feeling aud tender ness, while on the other hand the martial aud patriotic ditties are rendered with spirit aud thrilling effect. Mr. Kennedy has made a most pleasant impression during his brief stay among us, and his return to Bosto» will be hailed with delight." The entertainment on Monday evening will comprise the humorous, pathetic and descrip tive songs of Scotland, interspersed with an ecdotes illustrative of Scottish manners and customs of the oldeu time. Miss Kennedy will play a selection of Scottish reels aud strathspeys on the pianoforte. It is a rich pro gramme and will undoubtedly attract a full and fashionable audience. Reserved seats can be secured at Paine’s Music store, and wo ad vise those who intend to hear tho charming Scotch songs and delineations to secure their tickets and seats in season, as Mr. Kennedy will give but two entertainments in this city. School Books.—The Board of Education of the State of Vermont met at AVaterbury on the 18th ult., to make choice of school books to be used in all of the schools of the State for five years from Nov. 1,1808, the present list of books having been adopted in 1858, aud extend ed by legislative action to that period. Probably no more thorough examination of school books has ever taken place on the part of any School Board engaged for such purpose in this country. For several months prior to the meeting for decision, several of the members, who were eminent practical teachers, have been engaged in the labor of a critical and impartial examin ation of books before them, including speci mens of almost every school book known » the public. It was understood no preference would be given to any book because then in use; the best, most meritorious and acceptable books would only be selected for future use. AVe notice the entire Progressive Series ol Readers have been selected by the Board as possessing advantages over Willson’s, Hill ard’s, Sargent’s, National and Sander’s, all ol which had been brought in competition with the Progressive Series. The Progressive Spell er was also adopted, discontinuing hereafter the use of the Vermont Speller, aud Worces ter’s Speller. The choice made by the Boaid of Education will have great influence wherever good books are required for school purpose*, and the gen tlemen comprising the Board of Education ol Vermont, and having this important duty in charge, have conferred upon the public valua ble service. One of the most remarkable features in this selection is re-adopting a series already used eight years, and by its present revision, found unequalled by compilations of books of later date. Town & Holbrook’s series bid fair to be come generally known in this country. marlfl-d&w *„• Portland Turnvercfn* At the annual meeting of the Portland Turn verein the following officers were eleeted for the ensuing year: Thos. McEwan, Speaker; John C. Dennis, Leader ; Granville Batchel der, Secretary; Wm. Ross, Jr.,Director; Chas. H. Sawyer, Treasurer ; AVm. P. Horrie, Ar morer. The assessment for the ooming year was fix ed at one dollar per quarter, or three dollars for the year, if paid in advance. The following resolutions were adopted. AVhereas, In the course of events our friend and Brother Turner, Jarvis C. Stevens, has been taken from us by death, Resolved, That our association has lost one of its earliest, best, and truest friends,—one who was always anxious lor its success and ever ready to tender aid to further its inter ests. Resolved, That we tender to the relations of our deceased friend, our heartfelt sympathy in their bereavement. Resolved, That the Secretary transmit a copy of these resolutions to the mother of the deceased aud that thev be entered on the re cords of the association. The Loan Bill.—Our citizens voted yester upon the question of accepting the act autho rising the city to loan money, to be raised from bonds issued by the city, for the purpose of re building the city. There was no excitement and a very small vote was cast. The whole vote was about 800, of which less than 50 were against accepting the act. The' act therefore becomes a law. Incendiary RETURNED.-Marshal Heald yes terday brought from Augusta Geo. W. Jones, who was suspected of setting the great fire at Augusta iu September 17th, 1861, and is also suspected of burning the houses of Capt. John Williams and others in this city a short time after. It is supposed that he will have his tri al at this term for the last-named act. He has been in jail at Augusta ever since his arrest. Oread Institute for Young Ladies.—This institution, which was established in Worces ter, Mass., in 1848, now stands among the first in the country in every important particular. Its Principal, Harris R. Greene, Esq., a thor ough scholar and an experienced teacher, spares no labor to maintain for the institution its en viable reputation. See advertisement. The Fire at the Tannery.—After pretty severe work for four or five hours Thursday night, the firemen succeeded in stoppiug the ravages of the dames in the bark at Ricker’s tannery. The loss it is said will not exceed $200. It is singular that any person should suffer from rheumatism while it is known that Hill’s Rheumatic Pills” will cure iu all cases.

Ex-Gov. Andrew presided a great many earnest speeches were made, and a good deal of enthusiasm was manifested for the prosecution of effort in the missionary field. —Itev. W. S. Howo has been obliged to re sign his charge of the Baptist churches in Stet son and Newport, on account of a wound re ceived in one of the battles of his country. —The Methodist Society in Rockland pro pose to take down their present dilapidated Church, which was built in 18M, and erect on the same site, a neat and convenient church in modern style. —A new church edifice of the Congregation al society in'Oldtown was dedicated on Thurs day of this week. —Mr. Gangooley, a converted Brahmin, whose lectures in Boston a few years ago at tracted considerable attention, is now engaged in missionary work at Calcutta, with a pros pect of great success. —A movement is being made in England, under the auspices of the Bishop of Ely, to ex tend tlio female diaeonate in the churches. At a meeting recently held in London the Bishop said lie noticed that in the early Church the organized work of women was most beneficial ly employed, and concluded by hoping that by means of wise measures the ministrations of women might be restored to the Church. The Rev. T. Pelliam Dale defined the deaconess to be a woman holding the Bishop’s commission, which in the diocese of London runs thus:— “1 authorize A. B. to act as a deaconess within my diocese when called upon to do so by the pururuui uicrgjr. —The Liberal Christian complains that choirs in some of tl' - Unitarian churches ot the me tropolis are getting into the habit of “introduc ing trinitarian ascriptions or implied doctrines, *nto the musical part of the worship. Smother ed up in inarticulate vocalization they often escape observation, except from very sensitive ears.” —The midnight meetings for the reclamation of fallen women have been in operation in London for five years with the following result. Five hundred and eighty-three women wera restored to parents and friends, 1,800 were placed in service, 6C married, 5 were reconciled to their husbands, 400 were assisted to obtain employment, 4 emigrated, 4 were sent home to the Continent, 2 were established in business, 472 left or were dismissed, and 250 were sent to the hospitals. —The March number of the Missionary Her ald says a remarkable degree of religious inter est prevails in some of the fields of labor occu pied by the missionaries of the American Board. At Teintsin in China, and Biernt some remarkable conversions are reported. At Ooroomiah, in Persia, the class which lately graduated from the seminary, nine yonng la dies, are all Christian women. Two young wo men recently came distance of three hun dred miles, from the region of the Tigris, through a wild country, to place themselves under Christian influence and instruction at the seminary. —The Chapel of St. Oeorge, upon the corner of Beckman and Cliff streets, New York, will proqably be sold and demolished within the present year. St. George’s is the oldest house of worship in the city, having been erected in 1749. _________ The human hair—how many persons abuse this del icate and beautiful ornament by burning it with al coholic washes, and plastering it with grease, which has no affinity tor the skin, and is not absorbed.
