A list of letters rcroaiuing in the |>osl ottice at Bruns wick, June 3i, 1804, is one of the curiosities cf the Gazette ; we notice letters lor tops ham, Greene, Litchfield, Bowdoin, llowdoin ham, Harps well, Lisbon and Little Ifiver, all held lor delivery at Bros wick. The Gazette was a journal ot a literary turn of mind, as witness the lo’iowiug curi ous etymologies: Antiquarian* say that an old negro of Cape Cod, whenever bis master required anything of him, would exclaim, “massa choose it. Thence in time the name of Massachusetts.— A fat laudlady, who about the time uf the flight of Mahomet from Mecca, lived between New Orleans and the Chickasaw cliffs, was scarcely ever unfurnished with pigeon sea pie; and thence got the name of Mrs. Sea-p'e, The enormous river Mississippi owes its name to this fat landlady.

Ah, well, we smile at the foibles and man nerisms ot our grandfathers; we commiser ate them foi their slow c laches and diminu tive newspapers; but the time is coming when we and our works shall be subjected to the same not unkindly criticism. We hope the critic who sixty years hence picks up this number of the Pbkss, will not suppose that on the 23d oi March, 1807, we thought this sheet the height ot possibility in journalism. With our telegrams and our steam presses we might exult over these poor Heralds and Gaz ettes; but the twentieth century will give us something better yet. We hope the editors in those davs will not be pestered tor copy as we are now. John Ural vs. Tcn|irrnu'c. To'the Editor vf the Press: Io this discussion of the relative merits of Prohibition and License ami the claims of each upon the attention of the people, I do not propose to be turned aside from tho question at issue by any personalities or digressions it which Mr. Neal may see fit to indulge. It is an evidence of weakness to attempt to evade the issue and make personalities stand in place of argument. In this discussion I write in behalf ol those who believe that the only road to universal temperance lies through universal total absti nence. Mr. Neal is not of this number. He believes in taking a “little wine for the stom ach’s sake.” Teetotallers will now under derstaud just how much his arguments should weigh, and that they are not in favor of tota abstinence but of moderate drinking of “pur? wines and undrugged liquors.” Meanwhile let it be remembered that nearly all of Mr. N.’s co-workors for License also believe in a “little wine for the stomach’s sake"—ditto, eve ry rumseller in the land. Will Mr. N. be kind enough to reconcile these two statements,—“I would discounte nance both [ruinselliug and drinking] by pre» cept and example,” and “unadulterated wines are wholesome and undrugged liquors olten beneficial to health”? It seems to me that ever a young man might detect the inconsistency ot the two positions. Mr. N. believes in protection from existing evils. Let us see how. A few days ago a friend of mine was riding out Portland street and attracted by a crowd just beyond Green street, he found a young woman in a state ot beastly intoxication, rolling in the mud cut water of the gutter, while a few steps beyoue were three little children, the el lest not mort than ten years of age, half clad in rags, shiv ering with cold and weeping as if their hearts would break. He saw the young woman kind ly cared for by some Good Samaritans living near, and taking the worse than motherles. little ones into liis sleigh, learned from the eldest that they were on their way to tho Alms House, “But mother wasn’t able to get there!” This was the work of Bum. Bum deprived that mother of lier intellect and sent her roll ing like a beast in the gutter. Bum deprived those little ones of their natural protestor, and sent them, paupers, to the Alms House. Now What is Mr. Neal’s “protection”? Simply and only to seil the rumseller an indulgence to con tinue his work, such work as this, under the sanction and protection of law! This is tin License system he advocates. Is it not a bet ter “protection" to send the worker ot this mis ery to the State Prison? But Mr. Neal succeeds well at answering questions; will he kindly attend to tho follow ing: 1. I claim that the history of the world shows no instance wherein legalizing a crime or a vice has rendered it “unpopular.” He is chal lenged to produce one. He would render ruin seiling and drinking unpopular by licensing the oue and providing legal temptations to the other. 2. On what principle will a license law se cure better liquors? Are monopolies celebrat ed for the excellence of their wares? 3. Will Mr. N. tell us wherein a licensed rumseller “preys upon society” less titan no rumseller? 4. If there be “no essential difference” be tween the man who kills his brother instantly and the one who “produces a like result in six or twelve months” why make one by prohibit ing murder and licensing ruinselliug? 5. Will a young man be less likely to com mence life with habits of liquor drinking and brothel visiting if legalized temptations to do so are presented, than if those temptations are placed alike under the ban of public opinion ■ and law as the Prohibitionist would havt them? But I have already exceeded my limits and rest my case here for the present. M. L. Stuvhms.

Friday.—At the opening of the Court George W. Jones, who was on trial for arson in burning the dwelling house of Mr. liarlow, again expressed a de sire to address the Court and jury. Attorney General Frye, who had no concluded his argument at the adjournment on Thursday gave way and Jones was allowed to speak. • His address was a rambling one. He alluded to his own insanity, and to insanity iu his family. Said he had been roughly uped in the hospital, and that he had sceu others treated in the same manner; that men had been watching him here and everywhere he went. He t hen went on to make some unconnected remarks in relation to the various kinds of Insanity, repenting the some tilings over and over again. He spoke of the great lire in this city as one of the manifestations of God’s power, and then went liaok to tell about the insanity being hereditary in liisfam ly. His aunt had told him that his father had odd BTieKs, and one of his mother’s brothers dropped dead while walking behind a sleigh. He said ho served in the Mexican war and went to Kansas in 1852. Lett there iu 1851, because they threatened twice to hang him. After an absence of six'oen ^ears. returned to Maine, just as the war of the rebellion broke out. Judge Tnpiev requested the prisoner to speak of the crime of which he was charged. Jones responded that many things bad been stated on the trial which were not true. He appealed to the jury to know whether if he had committed the crime he would not have used his two revolvers before suf fering himself to be taken. He said he never set the tires. He would not lie for the whole city. It would be a gain for liiui to die. He then spoke of the difficulty with Mr. Williams about the wagon, and si id he thought it would be t he easiest way to settle with him and not go to law about it. He had no ill feelings against Mr. Williams, but thought Williams was wrong in that transaction. AJj the threat he had ever made was that he would pub lish tli#* transaction about the wagon. This was the truth, “so help mo God.” Jones spoke more than half an hour in this ram bling sort of way and then sat down. Attorney Gereral Frye then resumed and conclud ed bis argument for the State. It was a masterly ef fort, and was listened to with undivided attention by the crowd which tilled the room. The charge of Judge Taplcy was brief but to the point, and was fair and impartial, giving the prisoner all the chances ^liat could be derived from the evi dence. The jury, after being out about twenty minutes, came in and rendered a verdict of GUILTY. The prisoner was then remanded, and Court adjourned to 10 o’clock Monday morning. The extra jurors who were summoned tor the capi tal cases were discharged from any lurther attend ance. The regular jurors were ordered to be in at tendance on Monday morning.

Deport of rue Ladies’Auxiliary Freeii sien’h Aid Association.—The Ladies’ Aux iliary Frcednieu’s Aid Association, which was formed last March for the purpose of making clothing to send the to the destitute and and needy colored schools at the South, pre sent the following report lor the year ending March 20th 1807. Wc are unable to give the exact number of articles made, as some of the records of the Society were lost at the time of the firo last summer, together with tho fruit of many woeks labor. During the months of April, May and June, about flOO garments were made and sent with some private donations, to teachers supported byftlie Freedmen’s Aid Association of our own State, and from whom earnest appeals have come to us for aid. One large box and trunk full of clothing and several pieces of cloth were destroyed by the tire. For some time after that sad event nothing was done as a Society. All the sympathy and aid that eonld be given was needed to ward off suffering -around our own doors. Tu November, the City Government kindly allowing us the use of the Council Chamber, the Society came together to resume work, though weak and few in numbers; the aver age attendance at the room for the winter be ing not more than eight or ten. • During that time one box of clothing lias been made and sent away and another is now ready to go. We would take this occasion to express our cordial thanks to all those who have kindly aided us. The City Council Chamber is open every Thursday afternoon from two to five o’clock, where one and all who wish to further this object are invited to come and lend a help ing hand. All that is Deeded now aro the willing fingers. Shall the work be suffered to flag for lack of these? M. L. Dunlap, Secretary. March 21,1807. TltEi1 SUKER’S REPORT.

Minstbelsy—LaKue’s Carnival Minstrels, twenty-four in number, selected from the best performers in the country, will give their first entertainment at Deering Hall on Monday evening. They offer an extremely rich pro gramme, and there is no doubt of their being greeted by a crowded house. Those who wish to obtain good seats should secure a reserved one in season. Tun greatest invention of the age, Rep a,]. VWlwoanh Rabun C. Hama* The mournful, though not unexpected tid ings of the death of Robert C. Hanson will fall heavily upon a wide circle of acquaintances and friends in this city. ' The young men of Portland, with whom he was a universal favorite, will ever cherish with peculiar emotions the memory of one of the most genial, gentlemanly and noble hearted of their associates, who, in the prime of man hood, has fallen a victim to the dread angel of death. ■When, but a few short months agone, we met him in our daily walks, how little did we think as we listened to his cheerful conversa tion and hopeful words that we should so soou be called to follow to their final resting place the mortal remains of our beloved and cher ished friend and comrade. Nor shall we ever forget those days passed in pleasant and genial companionship, wheu “-through the swift advancing years Wu passed the merry hearted hours, ’ N or throbbed with doubts, nor cherished Tears ■ Life seemod a laud of song and flowers. ’ The fields ol May with glowing lips Receive the kisses of the sun; And up a tbonsand springing slips The warm and vernal juices run. Ho will not breathe tho airs of Spring, Nor pluck the wealth of blossomed Acids: Fur him no birds of summer sing. No bursting bud its fragrance yields.” _ H. Pleasant Bk-Union.—The Montreal Ocean Steamship Company have now five steam ships at this port, viz.; Moravian, North Amer ican, St. Andrew, St. Patrick and St. David.— As theie was slight probability that these steamers would all be • in port again at the same time, the officers determined to have a sociable time of song and sentiment, and as there was no better place for such a meeting they secured Deering Hall and the affair came off last evening. The officers of each ship invited the crew, and tickets were dis tributed among their lriends in this city. The hall was packed to overflowing, a large propor tion of the audience being ladies. The stage was decorated with the national flags of Eng land and tbe United States. Mr. Bakewell, chief officer of the Moravian acted as Piesident. English, Irish and Scotch songs, trios and quartettes were sung with grand effect, electrifying the audianec. Mr. Pierce, chief officer of tho St. Patrick danced a hornpipe. During the recess Mr. Bakewell gave a recitation. Mr. Chase volunteered his services on the piano and gave the whistlo solo which brought down tho house.. At the close of the affair Mr. Bakewell gave a stanza from the Star Spangled Banner. Mr. .1. T. Emery, after a few complimentary remarks proposed three cheers for our British friends, which were given heartily, and a tiger added. Auld Lang Syne was then sung by the officers in which the audience joined, and the social par ty broke up. It was one of the most pleasant affairs that has been got up in this city. Hareas Corpus Case.—In the U. S. District Court, on Wednesday, John Andrews, of Lew iston,-petitioned for the discharge of his minor son, Charles F. Andrews, who had enlisted in the lltli Begiment U. S. Infantry without the consent of petitioner. It appeared that Charles when he enlisted, swore that he was 21 years of age, when the fact was that he was only a few days over 18 years old. Hon. T. A. Deblois, the Nestor of the Cumberland Bar, his part ner, Mr. Webb, being engaged in the Supreme Judicial Court, appeared tor the petitioner, and managed the case with all his well known skill and ability. Judge Fox decided that the oath of the mi nor was only conclusive against himself, but not against his parent, who was entitled to the services of his son during his minority; and that the son could be discharged upon the ap plication of his father if he enlisted without his consent.. The discharge ot the minor was therefore ordered. Gen. H. G. Thomas man aged the case for the United States. Camilla Urso.—A complimentary benefit to this distinguished artiste is to be given this evening at the Music Hall in Boston. Tbe 0ccasion is the one hundredth appearance of the accomplished violinist in that city, and at each of these successive reappearances she has been received with ever increasing enthu siasm. The consummate skill with which she makes her instrument oloquent, the perfect grace, and the delicacy of expression which are so peculiarly her own, command all hearts and ears. Mme. Urso will mako her appearance in Portland on Thursday evening admirably sup ported. Of the instrumental performers who will assist her on that occasion we have already spoken. Madame Bertha Johannsen is one of the most charming singers now iu this coun try; and Dr. Guilmette has few superiors in the department of song which is especially his own. . Sad Accident.—A lad 10 years of ago, named David Lowrey, whose mother,a soldier’s widow, resides in the barracks near the Alms House, has been missing from home since Tuesday last. The mother and her friends have been searching for him; but without avail until yesterday, when, under an impres sion that had haunted her that her son had been drowned in a well near her former resi dence, between l'lum and Exchange streets, she took a lad and went to tho place. After poking in the well for a short time with a pole, the cap of the boy was brought up. A crowd was soon collected, and by means of grapples tho body of her son was drawn up from the bottom of the well. It was taken to Sheriff Parker’s office, and Coroner Gould was called, who, after enquiry into all the circumstances, deemed an inquest unnecessary. Arrest for Passing Counterfeit TJ. S. Treasury Notes.—A young man giving his name as William H. Hall, and who said he be longed in this city, was arrested in Boston yes-' terday. Hall purchased a diamond ring and tendered in payment four five dollar notes on The People’s National Bank, of Jackson, Michigan, which were at once declared to be counterfeit. He was taken in charge, though not without cousideiable resistance, and con veyed to the State Constables' office in Brom tield street, and gave his name as above stated, and said he came from Portland. On search ing him a considerable amount of counterfeit money was found, besides $45 good money.— He was committed to the Toombs and will be brought before the United States Commission er’s Court in Boston to-day. That Comical Brown.—The concert to be given by that Comical Brown and William Hayward at Mechanic’s Hall, next Saturday evening, will undoubtedly draw one of the largest crowds of the season, for Brown never puts in an appearance anywhere that the crowd don’t go. This season the additional attraction of Mr. Hayward will serve to in crease the public expectations, for we seldom have an opportunity to listen to so fine a bal ladist as Mr. Hayward. Wherever Messrs. Brown and Hayward appear, tney are nightly greeted by euthusiastie audiences who never tire of the mirthful humor oi the one or the exquisite vocalization of the other. Mr. Eus tis and the educated dog “Scottie” will also appear, thus giving a pleasing variety to this deservedly popular entertainment. Cost of the Hoas.—A correspondent in our paper, a few days since,'with a laudable curi osity, asked tho»cost of raising the 20,094 pounds of pork, on the City Farm, the past year. We have the following figures from those who manage the department, and as they are of public interest, we publish them. The debt and credit stands thus :— Dr. Aoril 1 1866.—On hand, 56 shotes, $15 each, $840 ; 7 hogs, at $40,280; and purchased 100 bushels corn, $95; 280 bushels meal, $808 ■ labor collecting swill, $612; board of swill men $890; board oi horses, $390; bought 25 shotes in June at $578; total, $3488. * 15e r'sunil*irf 1itrvo'T2^’0!W po?nds P°rk, sold at 15c., $.{,014.10, 100 ahotes on h;in<l $15 $l 51m • VSg&MF**' “"*•in Mr. Editor:—On crossing the sito of the contemplated "Park” y«*terdj»y, I was sur prised to find a company of men at work in blasting the little ledge—the only natural feature on Ike lot. If that park was in New \ork city they would not permit tho ledge to be removed for any sum of money, but would surround and partially cover it with barberies and juniper, or other evergreen, and consider it one of the prettiest spots on the lot. Beauty in such a place requires specimens of nature as well as of art, and the more of na ture in all its various forms the better, and more especially when the park is situated in the heart of a city wholly surrounded by art. A Citizen. Closing oct Sale.—E. M.

Miss Anna Levering is the leading lady, and she comes highly recommended by the press in those cities where she has performed. Florence Webster, a charming young actress, is the soubrette. Mr, Henry Smily, an actor of great merit, and who is highly praised by the critics, is the low comedian, and D'Orsay Ogden is the juvenile man. Great pains have been taken in selecting a company to perform here, and we are assured that such a combination of histrionic talent, has not made its appearance on our boards as the one coming. Artists have been engaged to produce new scenery and all such arrange ments as time will permit will be made to beautify the stago and the interior of the house.

Remembering the Pbinters.—Messrs. H. Freeman & Co., No. 101 Federal street, made their appearance in our office last night, bring ing with them a bountiful jupply of those fine and fresh Norfolk oysters which they adver tise. It was truly a “fat take” for all hands, who enjoyed a luxurious feast, and the night hands are under obligations to theso gentlemen tor it. In SACCARArPA, on Tuesday evening last, a few of the friends of Rev. Joseph Danielson, the Congregational minister of tho place, met at his house, and having enjoyed a social inter view, left for his use the sum of $132. That is the way to treat a good minister. TVhat is thus bestowed is returned in large measure. Probable Fatal Accident.—One of the lumpers at work on board the steamship St. Patrick, was so badly injured la&t evening by the falling of a derrick upon him that it is feared his injuries will prove fatal.
