TITE PBESS. Friday Morning, March 22. 1867. T* Hr. 1*1. I., aiertii. Bib:—They tell me you are a young man; and I can readily believe it, from the style of your controversy on a great moral question. Suppose I should head my reply, “M. L. Ste vens against Temperance,” following your ex ample—how would you relish it? Suppose X should go further, and propound a few questions like the following: Were >°u ever in the watch-house? Hsd you anyt i''U to do with the Are at Augusta? 1*° Pe P count their spoons when you drop ner? or tuck in their watch chains 1 ' 0,1 s op them to inquire the way? and then as ’ give “distinct and uneyuivoral answers, and not shirk the questions” would you consider it either courteous or fair? Nevertheless I shall answer your questions, and iu the fewest possible words. 1. No, I am not and never have been a “prac ticalbeliever in total abstinence,” though 1 have practised it for twenty-five years. On the con trary, I believe w.tb St. faul in a little wine for the stomach's sake,” and for the “many in firmities” that flesh is heir to. I believe, too, that unadulterated wines are wholesome, and that uudrugged liquors may be often beneficial to the health. And yet I claim to be a consis tent temperance man. 2. No, I would “not make rum selling and rum drinking popular." On the contrary I would discountenance both by precept and ex ample. 3. No, I do not rank roast beef (not ‘ nasty beef), gold watches and mahogany furniture in the same category with rum selling and brothel keeping. 4. No,—I cannot give you “the namo of a single individual who sells sound and whole some liquors.’’ I do not profess to know, though I should suppose they might be had of the city agent, whom you have already li censed. Most liquors are drugged and most wines are adulterated—hence the need of a li cense law, that people may not be poisoned. 6. No, I do not believe in protection for— though I do believe in protection from “exist ing evils,” and also protection from him “who preys upon society.” And therefore I would have a license, with inspectors and heavy pen alties. 6. No, l see no essential difference “in sell ing that which will produce instant death, and that which will produce a like result in ®ix or twelve months, together with the men tal and moral ruin of the victim.” And there fore I would have a license law. 7. No, I would not advise “a young man to commence drinking and visiting brothels”—to roast his grandmother alive—nor go upon the highway. Have I not answered all your questions “without shirking?’’ Yours, &c., &c. John Neal. Cmpliwalar; Letter. In Birmingham, England, lives a gentleman of American birth, having relatives in this city, who did mueh'with his ready pen during the progress of our great national struggle to en lighten the people of that country, and to neu tralize the rebel sympathy which seemed ever ready to crop out. 80 effectual were his efforts and so highly approved withal, that the Great Reformer of England, John Brioht, M. P., wrote him the following letter, which we pub lish by request: » Rochdale, Dec. XI, 1866. My Dear Mr. Goddard:—! am glad to hear you are about to publish your letters and arti cles on the American war. They will perhaps be too many for one volume, but you can make a selection from them, preserving all the most important. I told my friends in Birmingham that they had a great advantage over other towns, because they had you as a teacher on the great American question. T think I read all your letters as they appear ed, and T believe, and say it without flattery, that nothing more exact on the great struggle was written in England during the war. The facts were correct, your knowledge complete, and your faith in the final issue of the conflict never failed you for one instant. I have alwavs felt that our population in the centre of England were much indebted to you for vour constant teaching during the progress of the rebellion. It is pleasant to write to you thus when the war is ovor. I have often felt my faith made stronger after reading what you have written, and now we may rejoice together. Believe me, always, sincerely vours, John Brioht. Bam’l A. Goddard, Esq., Birmingham.

The writer’s suggestion in relation to a suitable memorial to commemorate the great fire,—that we now have such a memorial in the scaled and flaked granite structure which with stood the fiery demon,—is worthy of considera tion, but as that building is not under tho con trol of our authorities, it is doubtful if his sug gestion can be realized. If “W. A.

Classifying those ot whose heroism there is a general doubt, with univer sally acknowledged bravo men, is not doing full justice to the latter, however it may please the farmer.” —The Farmington Chronicle says Mr. Sam uel Tuck, of that town, aged 79 years, was run down by a fast team on the street, on Satur day afternoon last, breaking his left arm in two places, bruising his face, and slightly in juring his knee. —The Bangor Democrat has a double leaded leader to show that Kadicalism is slowly but surely coming to its doom, and that Democra cy is sure to win at last.

THUBSDi T.—In tho case of Mark Sullivan, indict ed for arson in setting tiro to tbe dwelling house in tho rear of Messrs. Rumery & Burnham’s establish ment, at the foot of Franklin street, on the 17th day of October last, the County Attorney stated that upon a careful review of the case and of the evidence which he should have to offer, there seemad to be so little real evidence against the prisoner, that he deemed it consistent with public policy to enter a nol. pros., and with the consent ot the Court he would so do. The Court not objecting, a nol. pros, was entered, and Snllivanwas discharged. Messrs. Sliepley & Strout appeared us counsel for Sullivan, The case of State v. George W. Jones, for arson in burning the dwelling house of Edward Harlow on Federal street, on the night of Sept. 19, 1865, by set ting Are to the dwelling house of Chas. F. Williams, was then taken up. There are three indictments against the prisoner, one for burning the dwelling house of C, F. Williams, one for burning the dwelling house of John T. Walton, and the present one. Messrs. Davis & Drummond appeared as his counsel, and Attorney General Frye and County Attorney Webb for tho State. In empannsling the jury the same course was pur snod as in the case of Keenan for murder. Ten of the jurors on that case were drawn, and nine of them were challenged by counsel for prisoner. The jury was formed as follows. Mr. Frost, the Foreman, be ing the only one who was on the murder case: Leander W. Frost, Bridgton, Foreman; Lorenzo Leighton, Falmouth; Joseph W. Parker, Gorham; Charles P. Trickey, Cape Elizabeth; Charles C. Mel chcr, Brunswick; Samuel True, Yarmouth; Valen tine C. Hall, Windham; George Slemmons, Wesl brook: Charles Wyman, Cumberland; Joseph D. Wyer, Harpswell; RufusTitcomb,North Yarmouth; Albert Gooding, Yarmouth. County Attorney Webb opened the case to ihe jury, stating to them the law relating to the crime, and the evidence that would be offered in the case. Capt Oharlos F. Williams narrated the circum stances of the bnrnlng of bis house, which was un finished. He was at the place after workmen left and everything was safe and right. He testified to the burning of Harlow’s house as a consequence of the firing of his; he also narrated how Jones came to him about three weeks before the fire and demanded $40 for a wagon ot his which tbe witness' son had used; witness offered to repair damages, but prisoner left him muttering something, but what it was wit ness could not say. Mrs. Williams corroborated the above generally. Howard Taylor saw prisoner at St. Lawrence House after 12 o’clock the night of the fire; prisoner was not in the habit of coming there; witness was clerk in said bouse. Charlotte Graham, Bred on tbe corner ot Federal and Pearl streets, a few doors from Harlow’s house. I saw Jones at the time of the fire; I said, “halloe, Jones," and lie did not speak, but went away; this was on Federal street; he had boarded at my house; I don’t know of his having any acquaintances; he was sometimes very talkative and sometimes very moody; I thought him vety eccentric; I saw him again but did not speak to him. Charlotte A. Graham. Saw prisoner at. same time mymothar has testified; I spoke to him and ho did not answer; saw him once afterwards walking with a woman; thought they were conversing; it was on Pearl street, opposite our house. Mary E. Sturdivant. On the night of the fire I liv ed on the corner of Cumberland and Franklin streets, next to where Capt. Williams lived; I saw Jones be fore the fire broke out; I saw a bright light in our house; got up and looked out and saw a light shining on our house; across tho yard I saw prisoner in the privy attached to Capt. William’s house; I saw him kindling fire in the privy; I asked him what he was doing and he ran away; I went and put the fire out made by kindlings he had gathered. This was on Franklin street, and about 15 minutes before the alarm of fire on Federal street. Matthias Morton. I live in Cumberland; I saw prisoner about 9 o’clock next morning at Cumberland station, and he wanted to take the train to go to Gard iner; he said he had come from Portland that mora ing, and was hungry and wanted something to eat; I sent him to Mr. True’s; I am station agent on P. & K. Road; sold prisoner ticket to goto Gardiner on afternoon train; I think, I am certain this is tho man; he had a Kossuth hat ou. Mary P. Morton. I lived at Mr. True’s in Cumber land at the time referred to; he wanted sometliiug to cat and a chance to lie down; he said he had walked from Portland that morning; he laid down on a lounge and slept until called to dinner; he went away after dinner at 12 o’clock; he had ou a Kossuth hat. John T. Walton. Lived on Federal street; fire took in William’s house; Harlow’s house next mine on one side, William’s next to Harlow’s; the latter took direct from Williams*. Alonzo Wentworth, Deputy Marshal. I arrested Jones at Cumberland station day after fire about 2 o’clock; he said he walked out from Portland that morning, starting before dawn—about 3 o’clock; coming in he asked me several times it he was arrest ed for anything at Augusta; searched him, and found on him two revolvers, oaftridges, powder and balls, matches and a pocket knife; articles produced; pistols were in a belt about prisoner; the p stole arc still loaded. Marshal Heald. I lived at 49 Federal street in Har low’s house, with Harlow’s family in the other part, ' and it was burned from flames from Williams* house; dry rubbish was piled in the space between the two houses; when I went to my house that night before the fire, I saw Jones standing in front of Williams’ house; I was awakened afterwards, first by smoke in sleeping room; all of my family and Harlow’s were in house at time of fire. Witness hore testified that he went down to Franklin street and saw the shav ings in the privy, spoken of by a former witness; he gathered up the shavings and had them present; he also produced the kuife taken from Jones at time ol arrest; the blake was notched. (It appears that marks on the shavings and shingles correspond with the appearance of the knife). Witness here related conversation with prisoner shortly after arrest, in which he showed him the knife and charged him with both attempting to firo Williams’ house on Franklin street, and burning the houses on Fedeial street a short time after. After some hesitation he admitted that he set fire to Williams’ house, and was sorry that it had burned out anybody else; he also said that it was oil account of not getting pay for tliat wagon, or to that effect. This witness was cross-examined at some length by Mr. Drummond, but nothing additional was elicited. Sheriff Parker. I have been keei>er of the jail over since Jones was arrested; he conducted himself well amt orderly until about the time the grand jury sat, in November following; he then became bad and tore Ills bed-clothes and thrashed about generally; he would take his iron bed-stead and make a ladder and climb up to the ventilator, and say it was a holo the devil had knocked through; he also hunted wood chucks; he went to the Asylum about a year ago and was brought back last week; he has been bad most ot the time since, assuming a portion of the time to be a General in the army; he has been quiet lor a lew dayr. vn cross-examination tne witness described more elaborately the conduct of the prisoner; at times he would go a long time without eating, and would not answer any questions; he would say at times he felt better and his head did not aches) much; ho said this on his way to Augusta, and has said it at various times since; last night and this morning he seemed somewhat anxious about his trial, and asked about counsel, and whether his friends were to be them Police Officer Pennell, turnkey at jail at time of Jones'imprisonment. He corroborated Mr. Parker’s general testimony; first noticed Jones' strange man uer about time grand jury sat; refined tood and would not answer questions. Dr. Foster was called, as physician, to the jail to attend Jones. I found it impossible to communicate with him; he would disregard me entirely; I could discover no trouble with his pulse or circulation; at first I judged he ate and slept pretty regularly; 1 think the succeeding weakness and emaciation might have resulted from retusal to eat or sleep; I thought it might be safest to have others pass upon him, and I recommended his being sent to Augusta. Dr. Harlow, Superintendent of the Insane Asylum. Prisoner was sent to me the 15th of March, 18C6; be has been there until last week; when be first came he was quiet and peaceable, but would not answer all my questions; After about six months he began to refuse to cat; I noticed that this aflectcd|his health; soon he began to cat more and grew better; he talk ed little, and then in strango terms sometimes; his friends came to see him in the winter; when he was brought to me I soon concludod that his symptoms were inconsistent with insanity; these sudden changes are inconsistent with insanity; I think it was feigned; he told me during his stay that members of his fkmilyhad been insane; I thought he tried to make a point of this with me in favor of his insanity, which is not natural for an insane person to do. Ui>on cross-examination witness testified he was so positive that it did not admit of a reasonable doubt that the prisoner was sane. This closed the evidence for the State. Mr. Drummond, counsel for prisoner, offered no evidence, but made a most eloquent appeal to the jury in his behalf, urging that he should not be con victed upon such slight testimony. He also set up in sanity, and alluded to the appearance of tlje prison er, his indifference during the trial, and otfier mat ters, a* indicating mental disorganization, Aftw Mr, OruwniuH'i Usd ihc prlWMM n-»fi H# rrttuHtH H few »f»w tup!*. Hll**#*! Tapley replied, “not now,” as Attorney General Frye had risen to commence his argument. Attorney General Frye commenced the argument for the State. It was a handsome specimen of foren sic eloquence, and was listened to with the utmost attention. He had not concluded his argument at tbo adjournment ot Court, and will resume it at 10 o'clock this morning. Municipal Court. JUDGE KINGSBURY PRESIDING. Thursday.—James H. McGlinchy for drunken ness and disturbance p^id $G.17. Patrick Casey, Thomas Casey and Michael O’Neal, were brought up for assault and battery on John Martin, of Cape Elizabeth. J. O’Donnell, Esq., ap peared for the defence, and W. W. Thomas, Jr., Esq., for the Stao. The examination was postponed to Friday. Henry J. McGlinchy was brought in on a search and seizure process. Mr. Putnam appeared for him. It was proved that McGlinchy sold out some short time since and leased the premises to another party. He was, therefore, discharged. Lecture on Natural Histokt. — The second lecture of Mr. Morse’s very interesting course on Natural History was given last evening at the vestry of the Congress Square Church. It dealt first with some peculiarities in the structure and habits of the higher forms of Had.ates, which were explained in a very clear and interesting manner; and afterwards with the plan of formation which Nature has developed in the Mollusks. A great number of entertaining and suggestive facts were giv en in connection with these subjects; and the lecturer’s happy faculty of lively and apt illustration was constantly brought into play. The innumera ble transformations which fashion can effect in the form and appearance of a lady’s bonnet, which yet remains a bonnet through them all, were amusingly delineated on the blackboard and made to illustrate the varied forms in which Nature will often develope one of her distinct types. A brief sketch of the formation and habits of the group of snails concluded the lecture, which was listened to with deep interest and with the most cordial tokens of approval. Another Venerable Citizen Gone.—Mr, Leonard Cross, one of our oldest citizens, died yesterday, at the ago of 81 years and 10 mouths. He was formerly a merchant in this city, tran sacting at one tilde a large business, but re tired from active life many years ago. For some years past he has been troubled in bis eyesight, and after the great fire his constitu tion gave way. Though singular in his habits, his heart was ever open to the calls of the dis tressed, and many have been the recipients of his charities without knowing the source from whence they came. He was an honest man in every it spect, and a true Christian. One o* his peculiarities was to be the first person to pay his tax, after the bills had been placed in the collector’s hands; and we think the books for the last twenty years will show that, with the exception of one year, when somebody got in before him, his tax was always the first one paid. Peace to his ashes. Back Again.—Mark Sullivan, who has been in jail for six months past on a charge of arsom son, and who was discharged yesterday morn ing, a nol.pros. having been entered on the in dictment, celebrated the event of his discharge by getting uproariously drunk and assaulting several persous. Police officers were dis patched to arrest him, but while they were in search of him he made his way to the jail to obtain some stuff he had left there, when Sheriff Parker locked him up in his old quar ters. He will probably be taken before Court this morning, and be sentenced on an old i ndict irent for breaking and entering Boyd & Hanson’s rigging loft, and stealing therefrom, on which he had been convicted. Phienix Insurance Co. of Hartford.— We advise our readers, who may be in want of insurance, to look at the advertisement of this strong and sound Company, of which Messrs, W. D. Little & Co. are Agents. This Com pany was among the most prompt and liberal in the settlement of its losses by the great fire, as on all other occasions, as those who have had dealings with them testify. At the pres ent time, when nearly all insurance companies aro suffering so badly, with capital impaired, it is good to find one with so large surplus of $500,000 over its capital to meet liabilities. Messrs. Little & Co. represent otl er equally sound—Hartford and Providence—companies, and are prepared to cover any amount wanted on good risks at favorable rates. Patronize old agencies. Carlyle Petersilea. — This young ami brilliant pianist, whose performances have created a furore in Boston and elsewhere, is engaged to appear, in counection with Camilla Urso and others, at Mr. Gilmore’s grand con cert on Thursday evening next. Mr. Peter silea has, during the past winter, taken the musical critics by storm. His success in the interpretation of some of tho most difficult compositions for the piano has been triumph ant, establishing beyond all question his claim to a place in the very foremost rank of pianists. The promise of his appearauce adds greatly to the otherwise brilliant attractions of this concert. Temperance Convention. — Tho County Temperance Association will hold its March convention at the Congregational Church, Walnut Hill, North Yarmouth, on Wednes day, next, 27th inst., afternoon and evening. The people of that locality will cordially welcome the gathering which, owing to the piesent aspect of the temperance question, and the deep interests involved, we trust will be large and enthusiastic. Liquor Seizures.—Yesterday the Dcputy Marshals seized a considerable quantity of liquor at the store of Mr. Samuel Chadwick. They also seized small quantities in the shops kept by John Costello, corner of Fore and Franklin streets, and Patrick Keating, on Commercial street. We understand the officers have given notice to all the ale sellers that they must discontinue the sale. Larceny.—Yesterday a lad, iu want of spending money, stole his mother's gold watch, worth $150, and took it to an auction room and offered it for $30. The auctioneer suspecting , the lad had stole it, though the boy said his father gave him the watch, reported the case at the police office, and an officer was dispatched to investigate the matter. He found tho boy, who had not sold tho watch, and took him to his parents. Oysters.—Atwood, at his Oyster House, Nos. 43,47 and 4'J Centro street has some of the largest and most delicious oysters that have ever been opened in this city. Call for “Lynn Haven Bays,” and you will endorse every word wo have said of them. He has also just received a cargo of very superior Virginia oysters which he is furnishing to his customers and the trade generally. Excursion.—The steamer City of Richmond made an excursion yesterday down the bay. There were about 100 ladies and gentlemen on board, all of whom expressed great satisfaction at the condition of the steamer and her speed, which at a low rate of steam was about fifteen miles per hour. She will leave at 10 o’clock this evening on her first trip to Machias. “N. N.’s”—The Promenade Coucert of the “N. N.” Society, at Mechanics’ Hall last eve ning, was a fine affair. The hall was well filled, but not so much as to incommode the dancers, who enjoyed themselves in a happy manner, while the galleries were filled with spectators, much pleased with the enlivening scenes going on below. Masonic Token.—The initial number of a paper with this title, has been laid upon our table. It is small but neat as a pin, as any thing from the office of Stephen Berry is ex pected to be. It is filled with masonic intelli gence, and wo regret that it is to bo published only twice during the present year, and only quarterly afterwards. The “Hub” Beat.—A correspondent in forms us that the church in the vicinity of Boston, at which only six persons attended the service last Sabbath, on account of the snow storm, was beat by one of those in the “des titute” part of this city, at which the congre gation numbered onlyyiee. Mb. Kennedy’s third night in the songs of Scotland, at Deering Hall, drew a good house, and the entertainment wag fully up to the ex pectations awakened by the popular balladist’s former efforts. Mr. Kennedy proposes to visit our city again in September, when he will find hosts who will flock to hear him. Oysters.—Mr. James Freeman, No. 2 Union Wharf, has received a cargo of the finest oys ters that have been brought here this season.

Will correspondents at a d!stanoe remember that we are not out of the reach of telegraphs and railroads, and that such matters of mere news as one most likes to be published in their own paper we receive before they can possi bly reach us in the form of correspondence. Lively gossip is what gives interest to ordinary newspaper correspondence, not mere dry sea soned lumber, however important sucli an ar ticle may he for building purposes. Will cor respondents boar this in mind, ami also re member that we oau furnish plenty of force without going abroad to get up articles of in different public interest. We look to corres pondents for vim, and for that which shall be the very juice and marrow of the paper. New Sttow Plow.—Some ingenious gentle men of Franklin County have invented and filed a caveat for a new snow plow for railroad purposes, a model of which has been exhibited to us by Mr. Morrison of Farmington. This in vention is intended to obviate the practical difficulties of the plow in common uso, to avoid all crowding, to work as well in a deep as in a shallow drift—simply requiring more power— anti free from the ordinary liability of being thrown from the track by lateral pressure. It has every appearance to our mind of promising perfect success, aud we commend it to the at tention of railroad men, to whom Mr. Morrison is anxious to exhibit it. Tim cost of construc tion will not differ materially from the cost of plows now in ordinary use.

After years of careful experiment, success has crowned our efforts, and wc 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 be used in whatever quantity. Not a particle of calomel enters their composition, j They may bo used without further preparation, and at, anytime. Children will eagerly devour all you give them, and ask for more. They never tail in ex pelling Worms from their dwelling place, and they will alwavs strengthen the weak and emaciated, even when lie is not afflicted with worms. Various remedies have from time to time, been re commended, such as calomel, oil of worm seed, turp entine, &c., producing dangerous, and sometimes fatal consequences. After 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 tlieir dwelling place disagreeable to (bom. In order to assure consumers of the genuineness of these lozenges, the analysis of Dr. A. A.
