THE PBESS.i SATURDAY MORNING, MAR 22. 1873 Every re ïular attache of the Press 1b furnished wit b a card certificatc countersigned by Stanley T. Pullen, Editor. All railway, steamboat and licte managers will confer a favor upon us by demanding credentials of every person claiming to represent our journal, as we hare infbrmation that several "bum mers" are seeking courtesies in the name of the Press, and we have no disposition to be, even pas ively, a party to such fraud. W ε do not read anonymous letters and communi· cati Jns. The name and address of the writer are in all cases inJispe ab e, not necessarily for publication but as a guaranty of good faith. W - cannot uudcrtake to returu or pre erve com munications that are not use-j. A "Mortgaged City." The New York Bulletin in commenting upon the decision of the Supreme Court of Massachusetts against the constitutionality of the Boston fire loan which it approves as most judicious as a question of pdicy, takes occa sion to enforce its opinion, by the following very remarkable statement: Portland in a similar emergency provided a public fund to aid in rebuilding the city, and the result was that more houses weie built than were necessary, and to this day rents are lower than is warranted by the cap ital invested in build ngs, and the city is mortgaged for more than it is w 'rth. It would be difficult to conceive how more numerous and more glaring errors could be crowded into.«ο few words. First : The amount of building loan bonds issued by the city was $895,000, of which $177,000 bare been redeemed and cancelled. The idea that this sum has had an influence to stimulate building is too absurd to notice. Second: There is the evidence to show the falsity of the statement that more houses have been built than are necessary, and that rents are generally lower than the capital in vested warrants. There are, it is true, some unoccupied stores, but the number of first class rents of this character that are untaken is small, and we are happy to add, is growing smaller every year. As to dwelling houses, the statement is notoriously untrue, as those who bave occasion to seek them will testify. We have the best authority for stating that there are no more vacant houses than are usually found in-cities of the size of Portland, and Dot so large a number in proportion to the population as may to-day be found with in the lim:te of Boston and the cities in its immediate vicinity. Third: The declaration that the city of Portland "is mortgaged for more than it is worth," is only more remarkable than the other» noticed because it would be impossible for a paper professing to be authority in these matters, to announce, in so few words, its formal abdication of any claim for any respect fjrits ex-cathedra utterances hereafter. Hav ing taken some pains to consult the assessors and others entirely competent to give an ac curate opinion on the subject,we are informed that lees than one-eighth of the valuation of the real estate of the city is under mortgage, either by city loans or personal mortgage. We are further assured that the mortgages are TCI J laigvij UVIU KTJ jvm HVJ « " "·" city, which affords farther proof that the city Is not entirely bankrupt. It may be properly suggested to the Bulle tin that its opinions would have more weight if it would take a little care to know some thing of which it speaks with such anthority. The Dominion op Canada has been in existence nearly six years, in view of which the St. John News presents some facts to show that the union of the several provinces has resulted in their individual as well a« their general prosperity. In 1808, the first year of the Dominion policy the receipts of the government were $13,687,928 and the ex penditures $13,486,092; and in 1872 the re ceipts were $20,787,982 and the expendituies $17,589,468. The Dominion people began their confederate career with a debt of $75, 728,641. In 1872 the net debt was $82,187, 072. During the period in question £9,225, 000 has been expended on the Intercolonial Railway, nearly half a million spent in the Pacific Railway survey, a large sum was paid as the expense of the Fenian campaign, and large sums laid out in the improvement of certain public works, which explains the in crease of the debt. The Dominion, however, will not find much cause for congratulation in the figures that its customs department presents. Dur ing the year 1872, the impoits of the Domin ion amounted to $107,709,116 while the ex ports are put at $82,639,663, showing a bal ance of trade against the Dominion of about twenty-five million dollars. The weather records of the Northern Pa cific Railroad officers show that although the winter has teen one of the severest in the Western States and the east and south gen erally, it has beeti mild throughout Montana, Oregon and Washington territories. So m irked was this mildness that the farme;s 1 i Montana began their plowing in the last days of Jauuary. But tie winter climates of Oregon and Washington Teiritory exhibit still more striking contrasts with those of the States which border the Upper Mississippi and lakes, and, indeed, of the whole east. Tae bland and uniform conditions wbijh prevail on the Pacific belt may be inferred from the fact that at Portland, Oregon, the mean temperature for January was 45 de grees above zero, with but one snow of two and a half inches, the grass growing and flowers blooming early in February, without artificial protection. Mb. Tbain's enemies are undoubtedly trifling with the sacred right of personal lib erty. The apprehension, however, that he would be sent to the Lunatic Asylum, is re moved by Mr. Train's own discovery that he is "an elephant on the hands of the Govern ment." History will be searched in vain for an instance of an elephant having been sent to the Lunatic Asylum ; and it is now too late to establish such a precedent. The Hartford Courant announces the Massachusetts fast as follows : Massachusetts f.oes into sackcloth and ashes, so to speak, on April 3d, to mourn for the sins of its people and to reflect on the vanishing glory of the time when a Webster or an Adams occupied the place now filled by a Butler or an Ames : "The lowness of the present State That set* the past In imch relief." An exchange says that all Hew Jersey is in » state of felicity bedause Tom Scott and the railroad monopoly in that State bas met a Waterloo defeat in the enactment of a gener al railroad law, which the people with great unanimity demanded but which was opposed with the money of Pennsylvania Central Railroad. The Biddeford Journal calls us to book for stating that the debt of that city was reduced during the last municipal year $103,000 copied from a Boston paper when it ws-ί real ly 112,000. The daily paper containing the in&ngural address of Mayor McMullan failed to reach us, which is the cause of the misstate ment. r„ thi> *vi?,°ngressional Bribery. To the Editor of the Press : lnr7p was occuPicd during a large part of the ιωι 9eesl . investieatiue certain charges against ™,. V'l S g t 0ne of its members for having bribed or attempted tobrlbc*™ tela other members, who miuht ' influenced in their votes, acuou or i„fl^ upon measures wuich might came b f them. The members charged with \κ·Γ° bribed had in fact received very small sumf not directly, but indirectly, and no one sup poses that those members, except, possibly, two or three of them, could be influenced in their votes by the pecuniary interest they had in certain measures. But, nevertheless, the opinion of the country lay heavily upon them. It seems to tne not a little extraordinary, that in the aidst of the public indignation, caused by this scandal a bill should be started in Congress, which the movers knew and ev erybody saw, coijjd not be passed, without bribery. Thereupon bribes were openly of fered to certain persons to the extent of $445, 000, to help carry the bill through, and the deed was done. For a large bribe in money, offered and taken in open day, these men conspired to rob the treasury of a very creat sum, and accomplished their design. Some members protested against it as a shameful fraud upon the country, but the bribers and the bribed met the charge with a sneer and a brazen laugh and a '"Who cares? help yourselves if you can." These men it seems to me, thought that the Republican party was going headlong upon the rocks, and so like sailors in a s* l anded ship, thev rushed up on the cargo to plunder it. " * Washington Matters. AN EXCITING SCENE. The Boston Advertiser'1 s special of Friday morning says: There was an exciting scene in the Senate at the close ot Mr. Conkling's speech to-day. He took occasion, toward the close of his re marks, to allude to a Senator's delivering po litical speeches at two huudred dollars a night, meaning Mr. Schurz, as everybody un derstood. The latter took occasion to say that there was no truth whatever in the story that he had during the Presidential campaign, received that sum of money, any other sum, for his speeches. Mr. Conk ling then brought up the for an earlier campaign. Mr. Schurz lepcat ed the explanation ot that matter-which took nUce before he was a Senator—made m the Senate last winter. Finally Mr. Çonk lina said he didn't allude to Mr. Schurz m his fir °t remarks. The sparring was very shaip, and while in progress caused considerable ex citement. To-morrow Mr. Cameiou has the floor for a reply to Mr. Hamilton of Mary land, who referred to the old charge that when Mr. Buckalew was elected Senator from Pennsylvania the Cameron patty had bought up two democrats, but they were prevented fro'ii voting for Mr. Cameron by a party ot roughs from Philadelphia going to Harris ι urg and threatening to shoot any democrat who so voted. Mr. Hamiton cited tliisâs an instance of a State legislature act ing under duress. Mr Cameron has a per sonal explanation written aud will be the first on the floor to-morrow. Senator Mor ton expects to be able to close the debate during Saturday. The Senate will assemble to-morrow at half past ten and probably re main in session until late. Mr. Morrill of Vermont expects to be among the speak ers. YABIUOS MATTERS. Postmaster General Creswell, on the re quest of Speaker Blaine, has ordered Thom aston to be made a domestic money order office and also an international money office. Secretary Belknap, who is one of the hard est workers in Washington, will leave next week to accconipany Gen. Sheridan on a visit of inspection to the posts in the Indian Territory and northern Texas. Lieut. Grant, who is now on Gen. Sheridan's staff, will be one of the party. Gen. Sherman lias returned from a visit to New York, and will act as Secretary of War during the absence of Gen. Belknap. Senator Cass *rly will take no notice of the charges made against him, to the effect that his election to the Senate was secured by the Bank of California, having made it a rule of his life not to notice such attacks. He be lieves in the sentiment expressed by Bishop Chase of Tennessee, that a man is always written down by himself. Life in Havana. [Extract from a Letter.] Havana, March 8, 1873. "How do I like Havana?" Who would not be charmed with experience of life in the torp" ics? What is the brightness of sea and sky at borne, compared with the glittering waves and blazing stars of this glowing region? What is the rank growth of oaks and elms compared with the teeming life of this torrid vegetation ? Somehow, however, the country about Havana at the first glance, presents itself as singularly flat and bare, and the town itself, after a few hours' residence, suggests the definition of a "city of pmell9 and uoises." The entrance to the bay, the "finest harbor in the world," is pleasing, not striking. There is nothing grand in the low scrubby hill on the right, where the famous forts of £1 Morro and Caranas are bristling with cannon. The city on your left, lying on a level patch of land between the har bor and the open sea, looks gay and sunny enough with its quaintly painted houses, tower ed over by the jail, tbe most prominent and conspicuous objcct, and by a multitude of church domes and steeples in every vaiiety of bad taste and style. On alighting, you tread narrow, crowded streets, fllanked on either side by fetid gutters, paved with the hardest and most uneven stones, with raised footpaths ten inches wide. Wheth er you walk or drive, you feel you are proceed ing at the risk of life or limb. There are 6,000 hackney conveyances plying in these streets, as the natives hasten to inform you with great glee. The far-famed Volante, that gig on very long shafts snd very high wheels, about which humorists have made themselves merry, but which was after all, one of the most practical things of Cuba, is rapidly disappearing from the sarrow thoroughfares, and its place |is now usurped by the so-called Victoria, a one horse carriage drawn by a sorry nag, and driven by a rash, unskillful and obstinate driver, bumping and thumping madly along, running over the footway at every street corner, and only appar ently becoming aware of other vehicles when the driver has locked their wheels or stove in their panel. From the labyrinth of the old city you issue forth into the now town, over any of the wide gaps everywhere cut through the ancient line oi walls, and you come to a "'City of Magnifi cent Distances," to broad, unpaved roads and wide open places, over deep ruts and dismal boles aud quagmires, where your driver dashes along haphazard, never dreams of picking his way, but goes through thick and thin as if he were running a race, causing his "fare" to jump high on his sent, and splashing the greeu i ih water of every puddle up to his very eyes. This is the new town. Here is the Field of Mars, with the Telegraph Hotel, the Prome nade, the railway station; a row of haif-demol· iehed bastions aud half built palaces: a maze of broad streets, tbe abode of dust and mud, fnll of holes, cumbered with big, loose s .ones, all unfinished, many impassible. The town is in a state of transition, it will be all right to morrow- the Spanish to-morrow. In all this disorder, however something like beauty may be descried. The shops, all open in front, shaded by many-colored awnings, look c«ol, and not untidy. The houses, with doors and windows cut down to the ground, have a tresb, cheerful appearance, in spite of the iron bars doing duty lor glass, blinds aud shutters, and at certain hours revealing the interior to its very holy of holies of domestic privacy. Stately mansions are everywhere run up at random by the s'de of squalid negro huts, with stark-naked children of all hues piggin» to gether in the gutter, with slovenly colored wo men trailing their one muslin garment in the dust, and allowing it to slip with picturesque strikes the stranger at first sight is the profn siou of smooth, white marble—marble halls, staircases, sitting and sleeping room floors. With a great deal of marl le and polished tiles and no glass, and here and there bits of gar dens, the wealthy classes manage to live m lux ury. Their houses are mostly on the grouni floor; barely one in a hundred can boast of an upper story; the roofs of new dwellings are all flat, laid out in terraces, where the linen is drying by day, and ladies and cats are lounging at eve. Whatever gieen there is for miles around Havana, is to be found in the private grounds. Some of the gardens, and especially that of the Captain General's countay seat, ex hibit all the pride and luxuriance of a tropical bower, with enormously tall and big] royal paluis, mango trees, tamarinds, China laurels, and a prodigious variety of flower-walks.— Everywhere else the land is bare, uot flat, but in easy undulations which if clad with trees, might attain great loveliness. There are uo sugar or tobacco estates in the immediate vicinity of Havana; tho ground, by no means barren, is laid out in niggardly crops. We have everywhere here piles of oranges, but I am yet to see an orange grove. Both in and out of thu town the elements of the beautiful are easily to be seen. As things are now, however, the beauty is merely rudi mentary. Havana is still tbecity of smells and noises. Crossing the new town in every direc tion are open sewers. In many of the thor· oughfares. built and inhabited on both sides, the filth rises to such a height that neither Vol ante rior Victoria can venture into them. But, even if the hapless stranger outlives the smells of Havana, he must in the long run be killed by its souir's. There can be but little peace in private houses, hut there is none in hotels.— Railways and tramwHys all run in the open streets and "Look out for the engino when the bell rings." Alas! the bell is perpetually ring ing; the engine incessantly roaring. Broad streets and low houses permit the din to extend freely over the town and subuibs. Where you have'not the railway you have the steamer, and trains aud mail boats start at every hour.— Blinding with the racket of the traffic, you have the never-ending peal of the church bells,morn ing bells, evening bells, midnight bells; the fraDtic ecclesiastics tugging away at the ropes f<i no apparent reason 'fcxcept a cruel dcier mination that where they wakejno heretic sbaxl to sleep. Add to this the rolling of thoi*lctorias, the horse-cars, the omnibuses, cl:in.,C,:w<v wagons of every description the hideoii» « ®8 at,d billiard-rooms making night twang of cuiit i the babel °f vo.ces, the to crown all tbî'.î stl.ueak of the fiddles,and, smallliours'of the « mp-DS at your door in the ter asking whether^m?'?* by some stupid wai wbo is to be off bv tv«> κ are,not t,ie gentleman tanias?" and then imwil ? traln 10 Ma rest is thus eternally broken .,ow,a ,man whose is onsequently soured can Y...

Secretary Richardson thinks Boutwell's finan cial policy was 'Bout well enough. Senator Corbett of Oregon was virtuous about the salary grab, but it didn't cost him much, his mileage being ouly $130 less than the hack pay. If aU the jobs had gone through Congress, say the correspondents, the Treasury would have been §624,500,000 "out." An Easton, Pa., man has sued the fire de partment for trespass in getting on his roof to put out the fire in his neighbor's house. Senator Hamilton of Texas has courteonsly offered to give up his seat—the one next to Sen ator Sumner's—to Senator Boutwell. The Cincinnati Times makes ex-Congress man Dodds its bete noir and prints his name in big black letters every time, because Ue voted for the back-say swindle. Mr. Boutwell's State and country have been benefited by his sen-ices. Of men of such or like record should United States Senators be made. A much greater number of eastern people have arrived in California by rail within the past three months than ever went there before in the winter season. A father and son eloped with two sisters in Tennessee, which so enraged the forsaken wife that she eloped with the father of the way ward sisters. A substitute for ivory and bone veneers has recently been discovered, made from goat and sheep's bones, the fleshings of deer skins, parchment parings, etc. It is a question whether the abolition of the franking privilege will apply to the widow of President Lincoln, who received the right of franking, on her husband's death,for the rest of her natural life. The Utica Herald has fouud out that it is now unlawful for tobacco-chewers to beg a chew. Tho United States internal revenue law allows no person to sell or dispose of tobacco in any form, no matter how small or great tht bulk, without first paying a license of $5. There is a shrewd suspicion that Jay Gould is at the bottom of tho attempts being made against the present Erie managers in the New York Legislature and in tho various newspaper exposures. Among the persons who were re tained by the Sickles combination were Henry Smith, the speaker, and several other members of the general assembly. Ned Timony, of Pawtucket, R. I., and a man named Sullivan, of Newport, were to have a prize fight on Wednesday just over the Massa chusetts line near Pawtucket. The ring was formed and the principals were ready to com mence work when Sullivan received a dispatch saying that his mother was dead. Thereupon he refused to fight. Religions Intelligence. Rev. Dr. Tenney of Ellsworth was last week summoned to the old homestead in New Hamp shire to attend the funeral of his mother, who had reached tho good old age of 100 years, less two months. Mr. Bickford is supplying tho pulpit (an eld log school house) of the Congregational church at Island Falls and also the church at Patten. Mr. L. D. Gammon, who lias just completed thecanvas9of Lyndon, in the work oi Bible distribution, reports that he visited 2G3 families containing 1,417 inhabitante. He found 63 families destitute of the Bible, 20 of which he supplied, and 43 dia >iot wish for the Scrip tures. Of the families visitea 56 were Roman Catholics. Persons attending Sunday School, 386; children not in the Sunday School, 333; families attending public worship con stantly or occasionally, 231; not attending church. 32.

Mr. Tinker, the pa'tor elect of the High St. Congregational church, Lewiston, state that he may be expected to reach home in about two weeks. He will spend the spring and summer in out-door em ployments, and commence his ministerial work in the autumn. His health is improved. A Universalist parish of thirty-two members has lately been organiied in Kin^field. The young people are interested, and the ladies of the parish say "this means work." Four persons were received on the 2d inst. on profession of faith into the 2d Congrega tional church In New Castle—Rev. W. F. Obear, pastor. The Free Baptist Church iu New Gloucester is enjoying an encouraging state of interest, several young persons .having lately expressed a desire to lead a Christian life. The pastor and the few workers are hoping for the en largement of the good work in their parish and town. Mr. Merryman, of Bates College, is assisting in the work. The work on the interior of the French Cath olic church at Lewiston is progressing rapidly. The trimmings and pews will be of chestnut and walnut. The spire of this church will be 156 feet in height. Rev. H. A. Shorey has resigned a very suc cessful pastorate of four years of the Elm street Congregational Church, Camden, to take effect May 1st. A revival of religion is in progress at Mount Vernon, the fruits of which promise to be abundant. Rev. C. S, Elliot of Dover, with his family together with his father and family, intend to remove to California next June. The Main street Baptist Society, Saco, are getting on finely with their subscription toward a new church. Not far from STUCK) has already been pledged toward the ο jeot. The society wants $10,000 before building operations com mence. Work is to be resumed upon the auditorium of the Payson Memorial church in this city and it is expected the church will be dedicated sometime this year. Rev. S.vlvanus Hayward refuses to withdraw his resignation as pastor of the Congregational Chnrch at South Berwick, Me, and a council will be called to settle the matter. The Methodist society in Wilton is prosper ing finely, Several have recently been admit ted to the church in full membership, and a children'·» class of thirty members formed. The Sunday school is also flourishing. The Evangelical Sunday Schools of Sagada hoc County, will hold a Convention at the Con gregational Church,.

Sometimes medicines that will stop a cough will of ten occasion the death of the patient. It locks up the liver, stops the circulation of the blood, hemorrhage follows, and, in fact, clogging the action of the very organs that caused the cough. Liver complaint and dyspepsia are the causes of two-thiids of the cases of consumption. Many are now complaining with dull pain in the side, the bow els sometimes costive and sometimes to loose, tongue coated, pain in the shoulder blade, feeling sometimes very restless, ami a* other times drowsy ; the food that is aken lies heavily on the stomach, accompani ed with acidity and belching of wind. These symp toms usually originate rrom a disordered condition of the stomach or a torpid liver. Persons so affected, if they take one or two heavy colds, and if the cough in these cases be suddenly stopped, the lungs, Hyer and stomach clog, and remain torpid and inactive, and before the putient is aware of bis situation, the lungs are a mass of sores, and ulcerated, and death is the inevitable result. Schenck's Pulmonic Syrup is an expectorant which does not contain any onium, nor anything calculated to check a cough suddenly. Schenck's Seaweed tonic disse ν the food, mixes with the gastric juice of the sto acli, digests easily, nonrishee the system, and créât a healthy circula tion of the bloo<l. When the els arc costive, skin shallow, and the patient is a billious habit, Schenck's Mandrake Pills are required. These medicines are prepaired by Dr. J. H.
