T I I E PRESS, j U ..... Morni ,, A ril 8, 1867. One of I'ofllaaJ’fi Ki^rimiticii, A few day a aiuce we took occasion to speak of >o;m* of the business wants of our city; new ruilroinl connections and a larger degree of at trition to manufacturing. This morning we propose to call attention to another matter, of the utmost necessity, the lack of which is feh upon our business and causes our city to be avoided not only by the business men but the pleasure seeker. iiy the great calamity of July 4th. more than half of the hotel accommodations ot the city were destroyed. Prior to that time we were sobering from lack ol accou.modaUons ot this kiml. and particularly first class accommoda tions. We have now-we had before that event- no tirst class hotel. And in saying this we would not he misunderstood and charged with underrating the best hotels in the city.— The “Preble" and the “United States” are and Jong have been tirst class Portland hotels, kept as well at first class houses in other cities, but still they are both iucouvenient, old-fash ioned and ill-adapted to the purposes for which they are used. This is no fault of their keepers, and no men in or out of the eity more fully ap preciate the justice aud truth of these state ment.! than the worthy gentlemen wno pre side over those highly respectable establisli .meuts. It is ot the houses themselves, and not their keeping, of which we speak. Portland has long felt the need of hotter houses, modern in style, beautiful in architecture, and fitted up with express reference to the first class travelling public. Such a house it has never had; nothing to compare with the best house in other cities. The Marble Hotel would have supplied our deficiencies had it been completed, hut that wont up in the dames with other edifices dedi cated to public accommodation, and can no longer stand in the way, as it long did, of starting and consummating an enterprise in the absence of which the city is suffering and will continue to suffer. By the fire of the 4tli of July tho “Elm,” the “Commercial," the “American,” the “Central,” the “Freeman,” the “Kingsbury” and tho “In ternational” hotels were all destroyed, blotting out an aggregate of accommodations consider ably larger, wo think, than those remaining, and as yet nothing has been done to replace them. This is n matter that appeals to all the inter ests of the place. Abroad we are suffering from this cause. A gentleman who had occa sion a few weeks since to visit Montreal, in forms us that wheu a long way up the Grand Trunk, on liis return, he overheard merchant passengers conversing about the relative ad vantages of trading in this city and Boston, and while admitting they could purchase as well here as there, they said, “but the hotels are so crowded and inconvenient that we do not like to stop there.” Such is the common talk in the cars and steamers, and it tells a sto ry of our wants and necessities that should not escape the attention of business men and cap italists. Strangers will seek places for business pur poses, where the surroundings are pleasant, and where they can command the best accom modations. Had Boston none hut her inferior hotels, how much of the trade now stopping there would go to New York. Men do not like, wheu away from home, to put up with need less inconvenience, nor will they do so if they can avoid it. In visiting a new place we al most invariably select as a stopping place its best looking hotel, and by the impression this creates wo are very likely to judge the place; and if we find the hotel and its surroundings uninviting we give such places a wide berth, and the next time we journey that way we go further and take the risk of faring worse. One thing is sure; until something is done to meet and obviate the evils to which we hsve referred, the business man will not be at tracted to us and the invalid and pleasure seeker will avoid us. With first class hotel ac commodations—as good as are found in other commercial cities—gentlemen will not blush when urging strangers to give us a call and try our markets, our incomparable laud and ocean scenery will attract individuals and fam ilies, and our city will be visited by hundreds of strangers who now turn away from it, spend ing their money with a liberal hand, and, going tuvay, speaking favorable words of the place and its accommodations which will will en courage other hundreds to keep full the places which they vacate. That a first class hotel can pay as an invest ment there can be no doubt. Ttwould be rent ed long before completed, and at the usual rates of fare insimiliar establishments there is no denial that the lessee could afl'ord to pay a larger interest on the investment than is ordi narily received by way of rents. What wo want is somebody to start; some man of meanswhohas faith in the future of onr city, and wishes to use his money in a safe and profitable investment. Have we no such man among ns? The question is an insult to the enterprise ami public spirit of our citizeus. We have the men. They have the means. Let them show their faith in the future prosperity of the city by their works, and the thing will be done.

He had to be lifted ofi' bodily before he could be extricat ed. —The Whig says the mild weather has yet had no perceptible effect upon the ice ill the Penobscot, flood judges think it cannot leave the river before the middle of the month at least, and some set it as late as the 20th. — Edward Monroe, a soil of Capt.

The mill was shut down as soon as possible, res cuing her from her position, and medical as sistance promptly summoned.

John Pooling was charged with assault and batte ry on his sister, Mrs. Ellen Conners. Dooling bad been in the rebel aruiy and bail not quite got rid of bis Southern propensity for brutality. Ho pleaded not guilty, but was adjudged guilty, although hand somely defended ty his counsel, J. J. Maybury, Esq. Messrs. Holden tt Peabody appeared for the State. Pooling was obliged to pay 414.M lor the assault. Michael Donohue, for obstructing the sidewalk by standing in the way of passers by, and refusing to "move on,” when requested by au officer, was lined 54.55. Let others take warning. New Establishment.—We invito attention to the advertisement ol Messrs. C. A. Parsons & Co., iu another column. This firm occupy the spacious and elegant store iu Evans'block, Middle street, originally prepare^ for Messrs. Lewis, Rollins & Bond, and will conduct the ready made clothing and furnishing goods busi ness in all its branches, both wholesale and re tail. It is only just to say that they have one of the largest and most complete stocks in this city, comprising every desirable article iu this line, for both hoys and men, and that they pos sess ample facilities for conducting a large and successful business. We cordially commend them to the trade, as one of the most reliable houses oi our city. Valuable Property —The Thurlow prop erty, in Westbrook, which is advertised in our columns to be sold at auction on Wednesday next; is a most valuable one, and offers a good chance, either for investment or for occupan cy. It is convenient to the city, and in a capi tal neighborhood. The sale will be positive and without reserve, nnless the day is stormy, and in that case it will be postponed to the first fair day. Those who think of purchasing real estate, should ride over to-day or to-morrow and take a look at this property: See adver tisement under the “Auction” bead. Death of Db. Weight. — Dr. Kendall Wright, one of our best physicians, died at his residence in this city last Wednesday night, after a brief illness from spotted favor. He was born in East Wilton. His parents, being poor, were uuable to give him the education he desired; but he, by his own exertions, work ed his wav through Dartmouth College, grad uating in 1844, and 'receiving his diploma of M. D. He came to this city eleven years since aid, by the skill manifested in his profession, secured a good share of practice here. His patients, all, spdak of him in the highest terms and mourn his death ns one of their best friends. The disease of which Dr. Wright died, was probably contracted during his close attendance upon patients afflicted with it.— After he was taken sick ho was called out by some of his patients, and, according to his rule, obeyed the call, notwithstanding he should not have left, his residence. In truth it might be said—“he died with the harness on.” Dr. W. was emphatically an honest man, free from bigotry or superstition. The desire for acquiring knowledge, whieli characterized his youth, induced him to examine the claims of Spiritualism, and this resulted in his be coming a full believer in its facts and philoso phy, but rejecting its follies and fanaticism.— He was among its most earnest and able advo cates, and contributed largely to the success of the Spiritual Association of this city, of which he was a member, and that Society, as well as his family and the community generally, have sustained a serious loss in his removal to the other life. He leaves a wife and three chil dren. Presentation.—There was a very pleasant occasion at Gorham on Wednesday evening of last week, at the close ot a course of music lessons given by Mr. George W. Gardiner, of Portland. Members of the class and other in vited friends in this community, unwilling that Mr. Gardiner should leave them after his very successful term without some testimonial of tbeir regard and esteem, gathered at the hall on the evening of the last lesson of the course, and niter the usual exercises, Mrs. Pauline McLellan, one of the ladies of the class, rose, and with a very graceful speech, presented to Mr. Gardiner a beautiful watch as a gift and slight mark of Tespcct from his many friends in Gorham. Mr. Gardiner responded briefly and very happily, and the evening passed pleasantly to all. The class sung finely, and during the winter have made very rapid pro gress in music under the tuition of Mr. Gardi ner. Spectator. Fobekih Exports —The total value of for eign exports from this port last week smount el to $281,608.81. Included in the shipments were 26,818 sugar box shooks; 1,633 shooks and heads; 52,206 hoops; 1,000 hdls do; 314,860 feet lumber; 1,153 empty casks; 18,045 Ww lard; 100 pkgs do; 25,532 lbs batter; 134 pkgs do; 11,451 lbs cheese; 108,840 do oopper ore; 84,881 do ex hemlock; 22,318 lbs ashes; 43,184 bush oats; 1,556 do peaB; 1,326 do barley; 1,250 bbls oat meal; 7,812 do flour; 08,840 lbs oil cake; 21,400 do pork; 172,714 do bacon; 13 buxesdo; 28 bbls cranberries; 10,161 lbs wool; 5)! bbls oil; 100, 000 lbs nails; 150 bbls potatoes; 00 boxes her ring; 07 kits mackerel; 100 drums fish; 1,011 yards duck; 120 bags seed; 38 boxes tobacco; 136 pkgs sunpry mdse. Caned!—Our worthy Street Commissioner, Mr. Nahum Libby, was surprised ou Fast even ing by the visit of the teamsters employed in bis department, to his residence, who, without much ceremony, aud with a very few words irom the leader, Mr. Thomas Brown, proceeded to give the Commissioner a good cane—ing. The Commissioner, though astonished at such proceedings, took it very coolly, and even thanked the gentlemen for it. The cane, the instrument used, was a valuable gold headed ebony oue, furnished by Messrs. Lowell & Sen ter, at a cost of about thirty dollars. New Store.— Mr. J. A. Fcnderson has got iuto bis uew aud spacious establishment No. 8 Exchange street, which is fitted up in good style, aud is furnished With the choicest fruits aud fancy groceries, foreign and domestic, which he oilers at wholesale. His stock is all new and fresh, aud presents a handsome ap pearance. Oue specialty of this cstablishmeut is pure—the very purest—of spices, put up ex pressly for Mr. H., and which ho offers at wholesale or retail. There cau be no mistake about them, as auy one can tell from examina tion. Oive him a call. Caved In.—Saturday afternoon a small por tion of the passage way leading from Fore street to Central Wharf, just at the end of the store of Mr. Rnfiis Stanley, caved in. At the time it occurred Mr. Stanley’s horse was pass ing over the spot, and he suddenly disappeared, all excepting head and neck. The horse was got out safe aud unhurt. The caving was caused by a spring or stream of water which had undermined the earth below and washed it away, leaving nothing but a shell on the sur face. Increase oe Pay.—The Postmaster of this city, on Saturday, received an order from the Postmaster General to increase the pay of the clerical force of the office twenty per cent, on all salaries under S1000, and ten per eeat. on all salaries over that amount. This is no more than just. We have always contended that the pay of Post Office clerks was the poorest, Considering the amount of labor they have to perform, of any employees of the Government. Levee.—The Itevee held by the young ladies of Saeoarappa on Friday evening last, will lie repeated this evening, at the same place, with * change in the programme. Notwithstanding the storm of Friday, and the very bad travel ing, the attendance was large; hut we appre hend that it the weather should be pleasant this evening, Warren’s Hall will be none too large to accommodate the citizens and persons from neighboring towns who will attend. The exhibitions will he very attractive. CUMBEULSND BA«.-The mem,«rs of the Cumberland Bar are requested to meet this morning at 9 o’clock, in the United States Court room, to take such measures in relation to the funeral of the Hon. George Evans as they deem suitable. Y. M. O. A.-The regular meeting of the Young Men’s Christian Association will be lield this evening at their rooms, in the Evans'build ing, at 7 1-2 o’clock. Members arc requested to he present. George Enu, We cannot permit the (listinguished man, whose name we have placed at the head of this notice, to leave the stage of action, which he has adorned by his brilliant powers and learned labors, without paying a brief tribute to his long and useful service to the communities in which h) has lived. Mr. Evans was horn in Hallowell January 12, 1797. Receiving his preliminary education at the Academies of Hallowell and Monmouth, he took his degreo from Bowdoin College in 1815, at the age of 18. lie immediately commenced *he study of law, and on being admitted to the Bar, he opened an office in Gardiner in 1818, having just at tained the ago of 21 years. The Bar of Ken nebec then contained the highest talent.— Among its members were Reuel Williams, Thomas Bond, Timothy Boutelic, Frederic Al len and Pelcg Sprague. Judge Wilde had been appointed to the Supreme Court iu 1S16, and Mr. Sprague had taken his plaee the same year. Amidst such learned and eloquent lawyers, the prospect of advancing in the profession would seem to be dark aud discouraging. Sprague was brilliant and popular as an advo cate, and the others were able leaders at the Bar. But Mr. Evans entered into the conflict knowing the chances of success, and with quick perception, a sound legal and well cultivated mind, lie had an honorable ambition to be come a leader among the leaders. His progress was rapid; his discriminating and logical pow ers, aided by an easy and graceful elocution, soon placed him in the front rank of the young er members of the profession in the State, and attracted a large and profitable business. His style of speaking varied from that both of Al len and Sprague. Alien was slow and hesitat ing in his manner, hut patient aud persistent in placing his well digested facts and points before tho Court aud jury. Sprague was showy aud declamatory, with a melodious voice and very graceful manner; Evans was clear and impressive in his statement, close and logical in his argument. With these high qualities he constantly rose in reputation and influence at the Bar. In the midst oi this success he was elected in 1825 to the Legislature of the State, and re-elected the three following years; in the lost of which he filled the office of Speaker of the House with ability and general acceptance. In 1829, while yet holding the office of Repre sentative, a vacancy occurred in the Kennebeo District ior Congress by the transfer of Peleg Sprague from the lower house to the Senate.— To fill this vacancy Mr. Evans was elected, after a very sharp and animated contest with liis rival candidate, Mr. Williams. He receiv ed every vote out of 596 in his own town but three. This important position he held, by re peated elections, for twelve years with distin tinguished ability, and to the entire satisfac tion of his constituents. He was elected for a seventh term to the same office; but the Leg islature took him ont of the hands of his con stituents, and placed him in the more exalted station of Senator. He took his seat at that Board in March 1841 at the commencement of Gou. Harrison’s administration, and continued there liis full term of six years, thus serving in Congress a period of eighteen years; a long er time than any other member from Maine lias ever occupied the office. A contemporary thus spoke him “His career as a statesman has drawn great praise from his political lriends, and hiB financial abilities have been pronounc ed by Mr. Webster equal to those of any man since Crawford and Gallatin, and not surpass ed by either of those great men.” He was lor a long time chairman of tho Committee on Fi nance, and it was said that no man in either House of Congress could more clearly and ably present tho details of a complicated question of finance than Mr. Evans. He was mentioned as a candidate for Secretary of the Treasury on the accession of Gen. Harrison, but “reasons of State” gave the appointment to Ewing, of Ohio. His speeches were Bound and eloquent, they were spoken to the ques tion and not to the outside public, and were always listened to with respectful attention.— He discussed with marked force subjects of tariff, revenue and political economy, and il luminated whatever he discussed. He bore a conspicuous part in causing the adoption of the Webster Ashburton treaty to be carried through, although other members from Maine were hostile to it under an impression that its ratification would be unpopular at home.— Among the Senators associated with him were Woodbury, of New Hampshire, Choate and Webster, of Mass., Wright, of New York, Day ton, of New Jersey, Buchanan, of Penn., Clay ton, of Delaware, Rives, of Virginia, Berrian, of Georgia, Calhoun, of S. C., and BeLton, of Missouri. To be a leader among such prom ineut statesmen is no ordinary praise and de mands more than ordinary ability. In 1849 President Taylor appointed him chairman of the Board of Commissioners on Mexican Claims. In 1852 he was appointed Attorney General of Maine, and held the office three years; about this time 1854 he moved to Portland for a larger practice of his profession, than was afforded him in Gardiner. Haying filled pub lic office for nearly thirty years, with little in termission, he returned to private life and de voted his remaining years, hut with a shatter ed constitution, to the profession in which he delighted. During tlus period he was among the best, if not the best lawyer in the State; for lucid ar rangement and sound logical argument we must award to him the front rank. He never resorted to those low artifices wbioh ore fre quently employed by mean or less able practi tioners. And his practice was always marked by courtesy to the Court, and fair and honora ble consideration to his associates at the Bar. Mr. Evans was not what might be called a literary man, his attention was never turned that way; he early engaged iu politics, and was engrossed by them during the best part of his life. He may be said to have given his life to politics and the bar; these pursuits he loved, and in them he excelled, and his forensic pow ers, and bis clear and acute judgment qualified him fur distinction in the discharge of the du ties they exacted. In these respects he resem bled Webster, although Webster by force of circumstauces acquired great skill and beauty iu literary efforts. Mr. Evans was a trustee of Bowdoin College for twenty years, and received from it in 1847 the honorary degree of L. L. D., which had been bestowed upon him the previous year by the Washington, Pennsylvania, College. For the last three or fonr years he has been quite infirm, suffering from chronic disease; and within the last month or two, during which he was confined to his house, his pain and an guish of body have been extremely severe, from which death was a welcome deliverer. Yet, amidst it all, his mind has been calm and clear, waiting patiently and serenely for the great deliverance. Of the eminent men who constituted the Kennebec Bar when Mr. Evans took his place in it, Judge Sprague, now of Boston, alone re mains, and he, with great infirmity, lingers on the border of the gTave. The procession has moved steadily on, and the honored and distin guished men who in their brief time perform ed great deeds in public and private affairs, have passed on, and we gaze with sad eyes upon the receding column, and feel that we shall never look upon their like again—Bridge, Williams, Bond, Wilde, Boutelle, Allen, Evans —eminent and venerable men; the world was better for your having lived in it; may the re ward of your works still illuminate the spheres in which you moved. Mr. Evans leaves a widow and three children, two daughters and a sow, to lament their great bereavement. W. Kirk in Kennebunkport.—Friday night, about 11 o’clock, the store occupied by An drews & Co., on Water street, in the village of Keunehunkport, was discovered on Are, too late to save the building. The flames spread to the barn and house of Mr. Chas. Goodwin, which were immediately in the rear, and they were soon demolished with the assistance of the fire hooks. The Are was here kept under, though the dwellings of Capt. Robert Towne and Mr. Nahum Haley were much exposed. Tlitffctore was a good building, owned by Mr. S. H. Gould, and uninsured. Andrews & Co.’s stock consisted ot stoves, tin ware and pedlar’s goods, which, with their machines and tools, were entirely consumed, being a loss of about 8-200; insured in the Holyoke Co. for $2000. Mr. Goodwin loses a good house, connected by an L to his barn, and also suffers some loss of furniture; no insurance on buildings or goods. Mr. Henry B. Foss, of Saco, lost sundry house hold goods stored in Mr. G.’s barn, and Mrs. R. A. Wills, of Newburyport, lost china, glass and crockery ware to the amount of about $300, which were packed in the burned store. The hall over the store was occasionally occupied by a band, who lose two brass instruments and two drums. York. Artemus Ward Monument Association. At the meeting of printers and others at the Preble House on Saturday evening, an Associ ation to be known as the “Portland Artemus Ward Monument Association” was formed. Saturday Nioht.—Eight persons were taken to the lock-up on Saturdpy night for drunkenness. Five petsons applied there for lodgings and were accommodated. Tiie funeral of the late Hon. George Evans will not take place until Tuesday. Particulars will be announced to-morrow. Portland Tbeatrk. — The production of pieces at this Theatre last week established at ouce the claims of the new company for supe riorly over and above any with which we have been heretofore favored. Oliver Twist wound up the week's performances with a very stTong cast. The Nancy Sykes of Miss Levering was a finely drawn and truthful portraiture of na ture, and the characters of Fagin and Bill Sikes received full justice at the hands of Messrs. Sheridan and Ogden. Mr. Sheridan is one of the matt perfect and artistic actors we have ever seen, and the manner in which he enacted the character of Fagin proved him an actor of more than ordinary versatility, call ing into requisition as the part does, a peculiar style of acting. Mr. Ogden surprised us by his fine conception of the hardhearted Bill Sikes. Lindley kept the audience in a roar as he al ways does by his performance of the Artful Dodger. Miss Webster’s quiet and graceful style is fast winning her Mends and it is truly a treat to witness her performances which are funny without vulgarity, and true to life with out exaggeration. The great drama of the Child Stealer which has been lor some time in preparation, will be produced to-night. The name itself should be a sure card for filling the house. Let all who desire to attend procure their seats early. To Contractors and Builders.—Gentle men : At a stated meeting of the Bricklayer’s Union, held at their hall, March 13th, it was intimated that wages would he no higher than last year unless contingencies arose, &e., viz: Fiist class men $4 per day. At the annual meeting of the Association held Wednesday evening, April 3, 1867, for choice of officers, &c., it was voted that the fol lowing schedule of prices would be given to the Association for the season: 1st, First class men $4 per day; good workmen $3.50; ordina ry workmen $3; interior workmen $2; to take effect on and after Monday next, April 8th, and continue in force until December 1,1867; Win ter work by the hour, at the same rate, till April 1,1868.

The CHINOAKOKA TOBACCO g m. from the rich noil of the “ ORIENT,” anil 1. jeecuel of a pe culiarly delicious flavor entirely unknown toihe to bacco of all other climes. But lls unprecedented popularity has sprung from the fact ol the entire ale sence of that deadly poison Xicotin. which fieimeate every other tobacco, and which is tbe oue and sol, cadss of the distressing nervous diseases, dyspepsia, &e., which most invariably sooner or later, follow tho indulgence of the pipe and cigar. At the recent analyzation of tobacco from all jinris of the world at the Academy of Sciences, in Tarls, the rein.s net! Chemist, M. Lamuvbeaox, declared ilia! while Eu-, ropean and American tol«eco contained fully tight per cent., and tho purest Havana tobacco from two to five per cent, or .Vicotifi, llie ClIIMlAUuUA did notrontnin one discoverable particle of that deadly poison, a drop ol which, extracted, will destroy life. Our Agent at BOMBAY has sliip|s-d us largequan titles of the CHTNllARORA (hiring the past two years, and although wo have boon pressed to supple the demand for this delicious luxury to the vote tan suioker, yet we are now prepared to oiler it in Knlim I toil quantities, at a price much lower than sonic American tobacco of u far Inferior quality. A connoisseur lias bat, to smoke the American to bacco and segars, which nre Invariably chemically flavored, to be disgusted with the medicinal taste which leaves a nauseous, unhealthy coating In the mouth, anil In time seldom tails to shatter the ner vous system. The natives of th« “ORIENT” smoke the CI1IN GAKORA from morn till night, from youth to age, and are happily iiiiiouscloua of tin wild, d is treating tire which courses through the veins of the inhaler of the frnues of tobacco containing Xicotin.
