The Maine Mtale Press, Published this morning, contains Gov. Chamberlains fast day proclamation; full re reports of the recent trials of Charles H. Heenan for murder and George W. Jones for arson; an account of the recent Falmouth murder; a letter from Augusta describing the Sprague purchase and explaining its hear ings upon the future of the city; the Con gressional proceedings of the week, with a sketch ot the parliamentary passage at arms between Gen. Butler and Hr. Bingham; the usual variety of foreign and domestic news, agricultural matter, market reports, shipping news, &e., &c., including a readable story from Cassell’s (London) Family Paper. A supplement contains the laws passed at the recent session of the Legislature. What will proaaale the Cirewth and Frae perity mf Partlaadf That the above question is one of vital im portance to our people all admit; that differ ent persons, occupying different standing points, would give diversified answers, is quite probable, and yet what we may have to say will be*so commonplace that all, we dare say, will concede its correctness. We do not pro pose to suggest any magnificent scheme, like a railroad to the moon or a bridge across the Atlantic, but simply to repeat what has been many times said before, and we can only wish that some pen more pointed and trenchant than our own, wielded by a hand more skilful and directed by a brain better posted, could be employed in discussing a question upon the practical solution of which so much de pends. That the railroad sprojected from this city will, when constructed, afford greatly increased fa cilities for business, no one can doubt. The extension of the Portland and Rochester road to Alfred, Rochester, N. H.,and thence to Ep ping and Nashua, there to form a close con nection with the road to Worcester, will open a new and shorter route than we now have to New York, lessening the distance some thirty eight or forty miles, avoiding the hack transit In Boston, and saving two hours in time and two dollars in expense between this city and the commercial metropolis. Such a route would take nearly all the through travel from '.his city and east ofhere for New York, while the track would cross several roads leading from the interior to Boston and afford oppor tunity for their freight to come to this port for a market or for shipment instead of necessari ly going to Boston as. it now does. Besides* the products of the regions of country pene trated by the Great Falls and Conway, and the Coeheco or Dover and Alton roads, arriv ing at Rochester,—where both of these roads are crossed by the contemplated extension of which weave speaking,—would he horn twen ty-five to thirty miles nearer Portland than Boston, showing that by proper and deter mined cifoit on the part of our merchants, they can successfully compete with the larger market for the trado of those productive re gions. Indeed, the Increased advantages which the completion of the P. * R. road would give to this city are worthy the atten tion of all our business men, real estate own ers and capitalists, and the benefits to the city should not for a single moment he lost sight of or overlooked. Another road, by no means a rival of the one just named—the Portland & Ogde*i»burg —proposes to open up a still adder country, apd to furnish an additional rocte to the great West. This proposed road, the con struction o( which, it is claimed, will be secur ed by capital organized and raised almost ex clusively outside of this city, passim; up the valley of the Saco to Fryeburg will go through Conway, N. H., thence around the foot of the southern spurs of the White Mountains, pass ing direetly' through the most extensive tim ber region of the Granite State, and reaching the neighborhood of Fnmconia, make as di rect a course as practicable to Wells Klver Junction in Vt.,and onward to connect with the Vermont Central whose direct connec tions extend to House's Point and Ogdens burg, N. Y., on the St. Lawrence river, above all the rapids, where close connection could be formed In the season of navigation with steam vessels for all the Lake ports. The extent of timber lands in N. H., brought by this proposed road within from forty to sixty miles of this city, is absolutely immense, while the timber,—pine, spruce, hemlock, ma ple &c„—incalculable m amount, would be brought within thiee or four hours of a slap ping port, whereas now it has to find its way through tortuous streams, obstructed by rap ids, requiring from two to three years to get it from the place of growth to the nearest point of distribution. A gentleman largely interested in this timber country gives it as his opinion, that such a road as we are speak ing of woulu lor many years make Portland the greatest timber market on the Atlantic coast. But this is not all; the proposed road would not only traverse the timber region referred to, and place the Franconia Iron Works in convenient proximity to a shipping port, and do the same thing for the extensive works at St. Johnsbury, Vt., but it would, if our mer chants were up to time as no one can doubt they would be, restore to Portland nearly all the trade ot Northern New Hampehire and Vermont, which has been drawn away from ns only by the roads leading from Boston to those regions. At ah points on the proposed road the distance to this city would be so much less than to Boston that it would give Portland a geographical advantage not easy to overcome; especially as the road would be un der control that would deal fairly by us, and not, like the Grard Trunk, beused to build up, by unjust and unreasonable discriminations, another city at our expense. But the prospective advantages of the Port land and Ogdensburg road do not stop with those we have named. The opening of a new channel of communication between the great West aDd the seaboard, thus making our city not only the terminus of the Gland Trunk butofa competing line, will give our mer chants and our State the benefit of competi tion in freight, and also of the cheaper rates which larger watercarriage secures. At Og densbuig the cars would form a close conncc nection with sailing and steam vessels for ail the Lake ports, during the season of naviga tion, and in winter time, by crossing the river at that point the line of the Grand Trunk would be available for passengers if not for freight. Perhaps other lines of rail may hereafter be projected, of vast importance to our city, but after all these have been summed up, after we have bound Portland to every principal portion of the State by lines of land and water communication, and brought up per Vermont and New Hampshire to our doors, and evened a new route from Chicago to the sea—alter all these confessedly great advantages shall have been secured, still, if this is all, we shall have overlooked or at least omitted the most vital necessities of the place; the conditions absolutely indispensa ble to large growth ami continued pennauent prosperity. lor mere purposes of trade and commerce, perhaps our city might he content with aspi rations in the direction we have been looking^ but simply as a trading or commercial post her population must necessarily be limited. It will not require a very large population of business men to do tbe trading for the State and half of the two States next west of us; and depending on this alone we can grow on ly as the country with which we are connect ed by our business, grows. What wc want—what we must have—to warrant the expectations of large growth, is the opening and prosecution of such branches of industry as will all'ord regular employment to large numbers of laborers, and return to them a fair equivalent for the sendees render ed. In other words, greater attention needs to ho given to manufacturing. Our sugar houses, machine and engine shops, glass fac- < • tory, foundries, rolling mfll> shoo m,nufa,. tones kerosene works, Ac. Ac., show how much the cty is dependent upon such enter prises for the growth it has already attained. Blot them out, and who can estimate the drawback we should experience? Small comparatively,and few as are our manufactur ing establishments, it may well be doubted if the city’s real prosperity would be more vital ly prejudiced by the destruction of all our railroads than by the overthrow of these. But if the creative spirit of our people is to stop with these, our growth will soon find its utmost limit Few cities are more favor ably situated than Portland, for manufactur ing purposes. We do not refer to the manu factures of cotton and wool, for these will be maiuly carried on where abounds the best water power. But iu iron, copper, brass and other metals, we may manufacture everything from buttons and hooks and eyes for a child's dress to chains and anchors lor our largest ships. Hats, caps, clothing, boots and shoes, harnesses, as well as carriages, furniture, farm ing tools, stoves, cordage, Ac., may as well be made here as elsewhere, the back country, with its lumber, water power and cheap labor being brought into requisition for such por tions of the work as could bo done best in the interior, while a large population in the city would find employment in the more ar tistic work, and in preparing the blocked-out materials for market. We see it stated in one ot our exchanges that the city ol Elgin, 111., has added lully one thousand to its population by the estab lishment of a watch factory. What a sug gestive item. The city of Geneva, in Switz erland. is said to exist by its manufactories of watches and jewelry. Attleboro’, Mass., has grown up upon its imitation jewelry and gew gaws. Providence, one of the richest cities on the continent, situated between Bos ton and New York so as to be cut off from ordinary wholesale trading, and witu no for eign commerce, has become tich by her man ufactories. The city is a perfect hive of in dustry, producing almost everything, from a child’s toy to tire most ponderous machinery. Why should not Portland reach out her arms in the same direction, and have her but ton factories, her cordage factories, hat fac tories, watch factories Ac. ? Why not have ‘'Portland cutlery” as famous as that of Wa terbury, and buttons, pins, binges, butts, screws, tacks, nails, spikes, boits, door and window fastenings, mechanics’ tools, plated ware, pottery, and ten thousand other articles of necessity or ornament, aud of more or less expense, prod need here as well as else where? Why not make our city a hive of productive industry, and create a thousand forms of merchandise tor the supply of the State and those sections of country with which we are or are to be connected, instead of having all such articles forced upon us by outside producers? We cannot expect the country to come and buy of us unless we have something to sell in return, and to sell at the lowest scale of prices. To do this we must, to as large an extent as possible, by creative energy and manufacturing enterprise, produce from the raw materials the articles with which to sup ply it, so as to divide between the producer and the purchaser at least a portion of the expense and commissions which arise from having too many middle meD. Such a turn to our enterprise^ and industry would open new lields for honest labor, call in hundreds and thousands to swell our popula tion, furnish tenants or owners for hundreds of new economical dwellings, thus using up the waste lots in aud around the city, making real estate more valuable, adding vastly to the taxable valuation of the city, and thus reduce individual taxation. Every new form of in dustry that adds to our productions and gives employment to increased numbers of men and women, is a re.l gain to the citv. It is hoped capitalists, real estate owners, mer chants, all who have the future growth of the city at heart, will think of these things. lankcrlanil Bane Ca.’aSaprr-pheaphalr. Some one has sent the writer three neat little pamphlets, In blue covers, entitled, ‘ Facts and considerations in relation to a genuine article of Super-phosphate of Lime, made by the Cumberland Bane Company.”— We have spoken favorably of this Company's Fertilizer before, as a more honest and valua ble article than any other in market, and our good opinion receive^ “confirmation strong” from the “Facts” stated in the pamphlet on our table. Besides directions for the use of the superphosphate, the tract opens with a catechism on the requisites of successful farm ing, l>y which it appears that Phosphoric Acid and Nitrogen are the most essential and valua ble constituents of manure, and that these are obtained to the greatest extent in finely pulver ized raw hones—hones which have lost none of their chemical properties by being either burn, d or Steamed,—and that even our com mon barn-yard manure contains but one two hundredth part of its weight in these essen tials, the rest being chiefly water and woody fibre, which are of but little use by a removal to the cultivated grounds. The Company consists mainly of farmers in tbe^eoriDty of Cumberland, Maine, who orig inally commenced the preparation of this fer tilizer for their own use, but at length, finding a general call for the same good thing, they were legally incorporated', and have establish ed a manufactory at Duck Pond, near Port land, where they intend no super-phosphate shall be offered but that which is a true and perfect article. When we say that S. Z. Good aie, Esq., the Secretary of the Maine Board of Agriculture, is its managing director, every body will know that this pledge may be relied upon. Certificates of its ^rcat utility are ap pended to the pamphlet. They are all from responsible and well-known gentlemen— mostly in our own State. It is claimed for this super-phosphate, that it gives a quick and vigorous start to the young plants; that it promotes luxuriance of growth throughout the season; that it greatly increases the product, and though last, not least, hastens maturity, so that the crop is se cure from frost, from one to three weeks earlier than without it. In this latitude of short Bummers, if all this time can be gained in the maturity of a crop, the article would seem to Ire a peculiar blessing to Maine. The company are determined to sell their preparation just as low as so good an article can be afforded at a very small profit. The prices are for any quantity less than ten bar rels, 4 cents per lb.; for ten barrels and . up ward, $75 for a ton of 2000 lbs. For com, 350 or 400 pounds per acre, sown broadcast, is enough; for potatoes, from 250 to 300 lbs. per aero, lu the hills or rows. Traxi. ■iffemce in Taste, A correspondent, making personal appropri ation of some remarks in the Press the other day in relation to newspaper correspondence, and becauso wo did not think it interesting to fill a half-column with description of the per sonal appearance, voice gesticulation and gen eral manner of a not very great but greatly puffed clergyman at the “hub,” declines to fa vor our readers witli any more of his articles, and in doing so, by way of deprecating our bad taste and vindicating his own, says: You will seo by the Boston papers of this date dotailed report of the rush to see and hear the man whom I attempted to give your read ers some idea of, as the representative if the religious idea of live New England; yet you thought not a word of this was of the slightest interest. Your requirements may tie easy enough, hut they are not to my t:iste, as, if 1 understand you correctly, you would hate me simply to “suckle fuels, aud chronicle small beer," which I decline. We are sorry our correspondent should have any feeling in this matter. The long reports in the Boston papers, to which he refers, cer tainly could not have been prompted by any special talent or merit displayed in the sermon reported,—for, judged by the reports, it must have been exceedingly common place,—but they were doubtless suggested by tbe unusual and significant fact that the sermon was de livered on the stage of the most popular t ta tre in New England. The novelty of the thing called out a frill house, hundreds per haps going for the first time to see the .plan* did audience room, and oilier hundreds to see how it would appear under its religious oc cupancy, and the newspaper!, as a mutter of I course, felt called upon to take special notice [ of the event, and of a discourse which, deliv er'd in the clergyman’s own pulpit might uev er have called forth a second remark. For the information of our correspondent we will state, that the gentleman to whom he refers and who has so challenged his ailui ra tion, is known almost as well in this city as in Boston, having preached here repeatedly, s, d having lectured to full houses several tiuv s, once during the past winter. Other men hine preached and lectured here, intellectually “peaking the thickness of whose little finger ‘- greater than his loins, and yet we havo novi r « t called U)>on to go off in a hall-column r ’tpsody over their mere personal qualities, nor shall we do so-till we see some reason to change our mind. We submit that, in such work oi mere personal adulation and fulsome battery, allowing it to he grateful to the poi son thus noticed, there is room for the suspi cion that “fools are suckled" quite as much as sensible people are entertained. And now let us say, once for all, for the in formation and comfort ol correspondents who think strange that their favors do not appear m print, that probably we consign to the waste basket much more of our own writing than we do of theirs; certainly more than of any indiv idual correspondent. We write, or attempt to, for the interest of the paper and its readers, but upon re-reading often conclude not to print. Upon sober second thought the opinion that prompted the writing is changed, or, it may bo articles prepared with a good deal of labor, crowded out day after day by matters of more pressing necessity, hecomo unseasonable, and for this reason they are not unfrequently cast aside. When an editor treats his own off spring in this manner, is it strange if the off spring of other minds should sometimes meet with an untimely end at hi* han.lt? j Im nemoriain Among those who volunteered at the begin ning of the war was Charles A. Warren of Standish. Enlisting as a private in the 17th Maine, he Was wounded in tho battle of the ■Wilderness on the 6th of May, 1864. Literally drawn from the field on a stretcher by Lt. Stur gis, assistant surgeon of the regiment, he was conveyed to Armory Square hospital where he remained, receiving all the attention the cir cumstances would allow, for about thirteen months, when early in the summer of 1863, he was removed to his home iu Standish. It is a remarkable fact, evincing a degree of patience and resignation almost incredible, tahtas a body the Union soldiers in our several hospitals were wholly uncomplaining, even whilo suffering intensely from wounds or dis ease contracted from exposure; and it was a reply from almost every patient when asked by the chaplain of Armory Square cospital as to his health at the moment—“Oh, I am first rate.” Noble utterance from noble hearts!— Living or dying may the blessing oi the Al mighty rest upon them, and their memory ever he cherished. Mr. Warren gained little or no relief from his wound, hut remained confined to his couch, constantly suffering yet patient and uncom plaining, until at last op Friday the first day of the present month, in the full assuranco of a glorious immortality, at the age of thirty-two, death ended the scene. The funeral services held on the following Sabbath, were attended by a large concourse of mounting and synipr. thizing friends, and were conducted hy Chap lain Jackson and Bev. Mr. Picketts. The death of a Union soldier is an event whic~ should not be suffered to pass unnoticed by a patriotic people. Though a great gain to the subject of this brief notice, yet his death is a serious loss to the family and immediate friends, to the country and to humanity. In the midst of peril, when the fate of the nation was regarded as extremely doubtful, the pat riotic, self-sacrificing and heroic services of tho soldier for the Union were in a measure prop erly appreciated, and our hearts beat in uni son with his noble endeavors to save tho na tion. But now that the rebellion is crushed, aud the Union saved, let us not forget the in strument under God of our national deliver ance, or fa'i to bear in grateful remembrance the patriotic services so freely rendered. “Bully” far IVa-by. The Cross-Roads parson has written a letter in relation to the action of the Ohio legisla ture agaiust equal and impartial sufirage, which we would transfer to our columns but for a “broad"’ vein running through it, ren dering it not exactly fitted for refined ami ele gant reading. The irony is sharpened and the arguments pointed with a style of expres sion perhaps justified by the social eondif ion of the "church of the nu dispensashun,” hut not necessary to be reproduced In this latitude. But the resolutions adopted by the meeting at the X Roads, approving the legislative ac tion in Ohio, are capital, and emphatically vindicate Mr. Nasby’« claims as the sharpest satirist oi the age. Here they are: Resolved, That after this manifeatashen uv re turn! n reason we are satisfied that their ain’t sich a cussed site uv diffrenee, after all, between a modrit Ohio repubiikin aud a X Roads dem ocrat; not enuff to keep em from fraternizin on almost anythin.

Krccat Pnbliralmn*. David Coppbbyucld.—Number three of Messrs Ticknor & Fields' charming “diamond” editor of Dickens’ works presents to us David Copperfield, perhaps tlie most popular on tbo whole, of all his stories. In all the requisites of a complete and artistic novel it is certainly his best.—In the consistency and harmonious de velopment of its plot, and in the naturalness combined with dramatic interest ot its incidents it has never been surpassed bvanything which its author has done. Who will ever forget the terrible storm scene, and the death ot Steer* forth and Ham, or the wouderfully vivid pic tures ot life among the Yarmouth boatmen. Its characters, are, many of them, among the mos** marked and individual of ait Dickens’ errt • tmns, personages whoso outward form and semblance is as distinct in our minds as thstof any real being we have ever known. It is a pleasure to receive an old favorite in such new and attractive dress, and we think the “Dia mond ’ the most enjoyable edition of these nov els which has yet appeared. The present vol ume, like its predecessors, contains sixteen illustrations drawn by Eytinge and engraved by Anthony. They are somewhat unequal in merit, but we think no one can fail to like the artist’s conception of little Em’ly, of Barkis r.nd Peggotty taking a drive, of Mrs. Gummidge, Miss Trotwood and Mr. Dick, and Liara and Miss Mills.

Ned Kevins, The News Boy; or, Street Life in Boston. By Henry Morgan, Poor Man's Preacher. Illustrated. Boston: Lee & Shep ard. The success of this little book, which has here reached its third edition, has been remarkable. The author, Rev. Henry Morgan, for many years an earnest laborer among the poor of Boston, gives in the form of a story, facts and incidents whivji have come under his own ob servation and experience. Nearly all his char acters are taken from real life; the hoy,Ned, is a representative of thousands of boys in Bos ton and other cities, and it is among this ne glected and fearfully endangered class that the story is calculated to do good. It is written with the utmost earnestness and truthfulness, a plain, unvarnished tale, not making b'gh pre tensions to literary merit, but deeply interest ing as illustrating the trials, danger and tempt ations, of ihc children of the poor, ami as con veying a lesson ol hope and encouragement to every hoy who is endeavoring to lift himself by honest effort un to a position of honor and ot usefulness.
