Quiucy has in his possession the manuscript of the first sermon preached by Dr. Deane in Portland, then Falmouth. It bears t!ie date of 1771, aud is numbered sermon 296. The parson thought it so good that he delivered it seven times. The text is Mathew 6, 34. There are but thirty-six prisoners in the Cum berland county jail, and they are all in the west wing, the north wing not having been heated or occupied this winter. The snow caused delays of trains on all but the Boston roads. The Maine Central was about two hours late, the Grand Trunk over an hour, and the Portland aad Rochester over four hours. The Portland Reading Club exercises have been postponed one week. The horse cars have been on runners three months. The Forest City Shooting Club hold a meet ing next Monday evening.

Hutehinson, of the Temperlv line, from London the 26th ult, arrived at this port with a full cargo yes terday afternoon. Yesterday morning's train over the Boston & Maine got stuck lu a suow drift about foui miles out of this city, and did not reach Bidde ford until noon. Rev. John Allen of Farmington, and Rev. Mr. Pitblado of this city, are engaged to give addersses at the temperance meeting to be held at the Allen Mission Chapel, Monday evening next. Hon. Eugene Hale is in town. The attention of members of Maiue Lodge, I. O. O. F., is called to special notice in this morning's papor. Mr. C. D. Kobinson of this city, delighted the citizens of Norway by some seiect readings at Academy Hall last Tuesday evening. His ef forts are very highly spoken of. Maine Crn«r»I. Yesterday afternoon the counsel for the Maine Central filed the following motion for a hearing with the Clerk of Courts. It is thought the hearing will take place a week from Mon day: And now said respondents come and move that the temporary injunction heretofore granted in this case be dissolved, for the rea sons following: 1st. The recent sitting of a Court of Equity had no jurisdiction in the premises, r"?.' ^ct.'on twenty-four of chapter fifty-one of the Revised Statutes does not give the com plainants any right to relief in the Court in this case, as alleged in their bill. 3d. They deny that the complainants trains are due to arrive at the place of crossing named in the bill at the same hour that the respon dents' trains, or any of them are due to arrive there as alleged in the bill; and they allege that four of the respondents' said trains are due to arrive at their station in Portland before the corresponding trains of the complainants are due to arrive at said place of crossing. 4th. The place of exchange proposed b/ the complainants is not a suitable and convenient "place for such purpose. It would incommode the public travel by stopping and unreasonably delaying the trains of the respondents, greatly to the detriment of all the passengers not des tined for the complainants road. It would ex pose the trains to great danger to collision from the large and increasing number that have oc casion to be upon the road at that point at about the same time. It would also expose the trains to be run into by those of another rail road that crosses that of the respondents in that vicinity. The grade of the road at that point is so high as to reader it an unsuitable and inconvenient place for a railroad depot. It is impracticable to transfer the passengers and freights of the two railroads at that place and to be compelled to do so will practically pre vent the defendants operating their road by blocking it at that poiut with trains waiting to transfer freight. 5th. The place proposed by the complainants for a transfer depot is within the city of Port land. only a short distance from the termini, and depots already established, ot all the roads interested, less than three huudred rods from the depot of the Maine Central Railroad where the exchange of passengers has heretofore been made, and but a few rods further from the de pot of the Portland, Saco and Portsmouth Rail road, the use of which for such exchange tlie Maine Central Railroad Company has obtained. 6th. The respondents have designated suita ble and convenient places for transfer of both freight and passengers. They have designated for the transfer of freight their own freight depot and grounds, where at the time of the filing of the bill thev were, and for a long time before had been, transferring to and from the complainants' railroad all freight so destined promptly, and to the convenience of all inter ested, the complainants having refused to way bill freight for the respondents road further than Portland. The respondents designated for the transfer of passengers their own depot in Portland where the transfer has heretofore been made, and also the depot of the Portland, Saco and Portsmouth Railroad in Portland, in close proximity to the depot established by complain ants and offered every reasonable facility for making such exchange, which latter is the same place where the transfer of passengers between the Grand Trunk Railroad and the complain ants road is made. 7tb. Before the filing of the bill in this case upon application of the complainants, the respondents appointed a committee to meet a , — «η—ν ·· ι a suitable and convenient place for the transfer of passengers and freight: the complainants designated the point of crossing and its vicini ty as the only place which they would agree to fix as the place of transfer, which place the respondents judged unsuitable and inconven ient, and proposed other places which were suit able and convenient, but the parties were utter ly anable to agree upon any place of transfer; and the parties having thus failed to agree, the law designates the Railroad Commissioners as the tribunal to determine all questions of fact between the parties, and tWfe Boston & Maine Railroad being the party seeking the connection should be required to apply to that tribunal, and the respondents have repeatedly offered and are now ready to give all facilities for ob taining a speedy decision of the tribunal hav ing jurisdiction in the premises, Marine Disaster.—The barque "Joseph ine," Capt. Haven, from Buenos Ayres for Boston, went ashore rear Cohasset, in the storm of Thursday night She was owned by Russell Lewis & Co., of this city, and was about 431 tons burthen. She rated Al J, and was a fine vessel, built in Westbrook in 1866. A. & S. E. Spring, of this city, bad $19,000 worth of cargo on board, insured in this city with Ford, and with Loring & Co. The crew were saved, but the vessel went to pieces. Later advices say that she had got some dis tance up the bay when snow began to fall, and in a short time the vessel was cempletely shut in by the thick weather, with no observation beyond her Lowsprit. Her course was then headed for Boston as near as circumstances permitted, for to emleaver to beat out to sea a;ain in the face of an easterly wind and a b'inding snow storm, would be quite as danger ous as to run for Boston Light. She continued on her way until 6 P. M., when she struck on the beach at Scituate, just south of the Glades, having passed safely through the dangerous rocks of Cohasset, and finally rested upon the shore of a cove on a sandy bot t im. The sea was not very rough at t'\e time, which enabled the crew to launch their boat aid effect a safe landing without difficulty. When they left the vessel she did not leak, and the prospect was favorable for saving the prop erty, but the wind afterward increased and during the night blew quite heavy, bringing in a high sea, which, dashing against the barque, threatened her speedy destruction. At daylight yesterday morning it was found that the cabin had been stove in by the. sea, and bad washed out. The following comprises most of the cargo of the Josephine: 454 bales wool to A. & S. E. Spring; 123 bales sheep skins to Larkin, Stack pole & Co., of Boston; 7774 hides, 243 kips to R. Lewis & Co., of Boston; 334kips, 1200 hides to N. W. Rice & Co., of Boston; 50 hides to Captain ; 15 bales sheep skins to Fowle & Car roll, of Boston. It is thought that the cargo may be saved in a damaged condition, if the sea goes down and the wind abates. A Portland Sea Captain Assaulted.— Capt. James Lyman of this city, who has re cently arrived home, states that on his wav from Baltimore to Portland, be made a short stay in New York, and while there stepped in to a restaurant to get his breakfast. While there he received a blow on the back of his head from a beer bottle in the hands of a "rough" who stole up behind him. The blow severed an artery, and nearly blinded the Captain)with his own blood. As soon as he could look about him he went for that heathen Caucasian in a man ner quite painful to see,leaving him on the floor for dead. During this scene the saloon keeper maintained a position of passive neutrality. After polishing the"rough"the Captain hurried to a surgeon and bad his wound dressed. He was subsequently arrested, but was released on the testimony of the saloon keeper. It is con jectured that the motive for the assault was a large sum of money which the Captain had on his person. Maine General Hospital Fair.—The ex tensive arrangements making for this Fair, must not only prove beneficial to the Treasury of the Hospital, but of much value to the busi ness interest of the city. It will be held about the middle of June next, continuing eight days, and from the liberality with which the various railroad and steamboat companies meet the propositions of the Executive Committee in the transportation of freight and passengers,an immense number of persons from different sec tions of the State, will be attracted to the city during the days of the Fair. The Executive Committee, while they are endeavoring to aid the Hospital, have the interest of the city in view at the same time. A Portland Boy.—The " Orpheus," speak ing of the production of an original American opera entitled "Valerie, or the Treasured To kens, at Washington last month, pays the following compliment to a Portland boy: " Mr. Beckett had, in the role of ' M. Cadoche,' a part requiring comparatively little action but opportunity to make some telling points in singing. His voice is fine, his method and style good. His rendering of tho Song of the Cuirassier (Act first) received a well-merited encore, and the duo, ' Dear Old Comrade,' (Act third) was magnificently sung by him and Mr. Gannon, receiving a tumultu ous encore, and exciting an expression of sur prise that two such singers should be off the regular operatic stage." Select Reading.—The last entertainment of the People's Course comes off next Thurs day evening, and consists of select readings by the well-known and favorite elocutionist. Prof. Churchill. The entertainment is one that our citizens cannot afiord to miss. Fibe. — About 10 o'clock last night smoke was discovered issuing from a dress-maker's shop in the Harford Block on Middle Street, oocupied by Miss Annie Holmes. The fire was extinguished before much damage was done. There was but little furniture in the shop, and the damage to it was not more than 825. There was an insurance on furniture, &c., in Web ster's agency for 8300. Many people wer? called out by the report of a fire on Middle Street. It seems that there was a leak in the roof through which which the rain poured down upon the bed. Miss Holmes placed the bed near the stove to dry, and it caught fire. Sunday Evening Lectubes.—The fifth of the series of Sunday evening lectures will be delivered at City Hall to-morrow evening by the popular pulpit orator, Eev. C. B. Pitblado. His subject will be "The Fell Enchantress," under which head he will discourse on the tem perance reform. The choir of the Congress street M. E. church will lead the singing.

Mr, Wright asked the Senate to take up the additions to the rules he offered yesterday. After debate Mr. Wright's resolution relative to rules was postponed to the first day of ne xt session. Mr. Ferry offered an amendment to the Cald well resolution, as follows : Resolved, That Alexander Caldwell be and is hereby expelled from the Senate of the United States. Mr. Anthony stated that the Printing Com mittee had contracted with Dennis Murphy to report the debates, and instructed the printer to furnish two copies of the Congressional re cord to members. The Caldwell case was then resumed, Mr. Frelinghuysen submitting some remarks as to the judicial and parliamentary powers of the Senate. Mr. Frelinghuysen said in relation to Cald well, that it was the law of Kansas which had been violated, not the laws of the United States There was no doubt of the fact tbat Caldwell paid Carney ®15,000, but this was not a cri me, as Congress and all the powers of this nation could not make it a crim , and because the Constitutioa says that no expost facto law shall be passed, and the Supreme Court had pronounced the test oath unconstitutional. He, however, considered this act of Mr. CaldweU as connected with the obtaining of his Senatorial office, but as to the election of Caldwell, the elections were legal ; voters voted freely and un derstandingly, and therefore the election was valid, and for this reason he should not vote to declare that Caldwell was not dnly and legally elected. Mr. Howe confined himself principally to the point tbat the evidence was overwhelming, that Caldwell w.is duly and legally elected, and therefore he should not vote for the resolution of the Committee. Mr. Morrill, of Maine, contended that uuder common law, as well as practice of civilized nations, an election is .tot an election if pur chased. The election must be free and by an unbribed vote. The man who tak >s a bribe for a vote is a chattel and a vender, and ceases to be an elector. He should vote for the resolu tion of the Committee, because he believed it to be a wholesome exercise of power and a duty devolved upon the Senate. Mr. Stewart argued that the Senate had no more right to inquire into the vote of mem bers of Legislature than the member of a Leg islature could inquire into votes of Senators. The Senate went into executive sessiou, and soon after adjourned, THE GALLOWS! Execution of Foster and McEl lianey. Description of the Scenes at Ibe Gallows. FOSTEB'S LAST HOUBS. New Yokk, March 21.—As early as 7 o'clock this morning several hundred people had as sembled in front of the city prison, anxiously awaiting the moment when Foster, the murder er of Ave y D. Putnam, was to be led to the scaffold; yet not one in twenty had the slight est chance of gaining admission. Foster anoke at seven o'clock this momiug. He partook of a cup of coffee but ate nothing. Ho was very pale and his strength fast failing. He was attended by Eev. Dr. Tyng and Rev. Mr. Shoonmaker, Chaplain of Sing Sing, rie engaged in devotional exercises until 9 o'clock. At 11 minutes past nine he was led out, sup Sorted by Sheriff Brennan and Under Sheriff tevens. Foster walked unfalteringly to the scaffold. His face had a hectic flush. Arriv ing beDeath the scaffold Rev. Dr Tyus, assist ed by Eev. Mr. Shoonmaker, read the 51»t Psalm As the solemn words were read in which Dr Tyng besought God to ':open the eye of mercy unto this thy servant," the scene was hushed and impressive in the extreme. Dur ing the reading of thfc service Foster stood be neath tl e scaffold, his bead bowed down and his left hind shading his eves. Rev. Mr. Shoon maker shook hands with Foster and said, "God bless thee, my dear friend." At seventeen minutes past nine o'clock the bolt was drawn and Foster's body rose into the air. The on demned man gave one slight struggle, only so slight as to be almost imperceptible. There w s an abxeuce of the usual movement of the shoulders. There was a slight contraction of the lower limbs and a barely perceptible motion of the hands. After hanging five minutes the body was lowered abont nine inches, and a minute thereafter about a foot further. Twelve minutes after the bolt was drawn the pulse ceased to beat. Foster had died almost with out a struggle. It whs evident during the reading of the ser vice that he was rapidly sinking ami scarcely able to stand. The physician noticed this anil Rev.

Boston, March 21.—.Tames McElhaney, who murdered his wife some six months since, ex piated his crime on the scaffold at the Suffolk Jail in this city this forenoon. He was hung at twelve minutes past eleven, and in twenty minutes life was pronounced extinct. Tbere were about 400 spectators present, and all pre served a respectful silence and dceorum that was almost painful during the execution of the law. The condemned made no remarks upon the scaffold, but before leaving his cell he in dulged in religious devotions, in company with Rev. Mr. Upham, his spiritual adviser, and Father Cook, the chaplain of the jail. He took his last leave of his father and mother last night, and signed a will bequeathing all his property, about $6000, to his onl> child. He walked firmly to the scaffold and behaved with extraordinary fortitude. The body of McElhaney was delivered to his parents this afternoon, who removed it to Kant Cambridge, wliete funeral services will be sol emnized to-morrow at 2 o'clock, from Mr. Ray's church. It is stated on authority of McEIha ney's spiritual advisers, that the members of his wife's family refused to allow him to see his little child named Nellie Emma, who is only two years old. A letter seconding an oft ex près sed wish on < he part of the condemned man to see his child was sent by Sheriff Clark to the family, but withoat effect. Great Pire in Jfomey City. New Yobk, March 21.—About 11.30 to-day a fire broke ont in the ferry house of the Erie railroad, at the foot of Pavonia Avenue, Jer sey Citf. A strong gale was blowing from the west and all efforts to check the flames were unavailing, and the trips of the ferry boats were abandoned. A laige wooden passenger depot in the Tear of the ferry house took tire almost simultaneously and was destroyed. Sev eral trains were hastily removed uninjured. The new freight depot recently erected was al so consumed with a large amount of cotton, as was the old freight depot he vily stored with freight. Taylor's saloou was partially destroy ed. The fire is supposed to have originated from a locomotive spark. All vessels in the viciLity were moved ont of reach of danger. The fire was got under about half past two. The depot for westward bound freight was saved. All the books and papers of the com pany were saved. The freight burned consisted of 1000 bales of cotton, 200 hogsheads of tobac co and some oil cake. The loss by the fire, it is estimated, will not exceed $500,000, includ ing the following: New freight depot $20 000, cotton $100,000, old freight depot $5000, tobacco and other freight $50,000, passenger depot $15, 000, ferry building $12,000, ferry bridges $10, 000, Taylor's saloon $6000, with the exception of the latter which is covered, the amount of insurance is unascertained.

Gonzales, the present Governor of Porto Plata,sent a few government troops and dispersed Nevez. The followers and two sons of Nevez fledj finally taking refuge in the private residence of the British Consul, Hamburger Gonzales sent a demand to Hamburger, demanding that they be given up to him, but Hamburger refused, claiming thi.t the British flag protected the fu gitives in his private residence as if they were at his bis official consulate office. Gonzales ordered the refugees to be taken by force, and they were thus taken from the residence. Hamburger protested and is reported to have sent for an English man-of-war. The course of Gonzales is endorsed by President Baez, and the prissners have been sent under guard from Porto Plata to St. Domingo The d«aen Award. London, March 21.—In the House of Com mons this evening, Gathorne Haidy moved an address to the Crown, praying that the govern ment be instructed ο dissent from the three rules adopted by the Court of Arh'tration. Mr. Hardy, in the course of an able speech in support of his motion, declared that in mak ing it ne had no party object, nor did he intend to cast tha slighte t imputation on the fairness of the arbitrators. The disclaimer was received with cheers. Mr. Foster opposed the motion because it practically called for a vote of ceusure on arbi trators who adopted th>- rule. These rules af fected the United States as much a* England. No other nation was interested. If we object to them now it will appear as if we were smart ing under the sense of having to pay the com pensai, η awarded, and the united actiou of America and England hereafter in case of war with or between other powers would be impos sible. Mr. Vernon Harconrt spoke strongly in favor of the motion. Ht declared that tho rules never held water. Tho best thing possible to do was to request the United States Government to withdraw them and substitute others, which in event of war would not make neutrality intol erable. Mr. Kathbone was opposed to disturbing the decision of the Geneva Board. He argued that rules only required England to enforce her own laws, and if they were repealed England's commerce would hie ruinei forever in the very next war. He hoped the House would not re verse the Government's just and statesmanlike policy. Mr. Gregory, conservative, sharply criticised the action of the Geneva Board in imposing dangerous liabilities on neutrals. Sir Stafford Nortlicote was disposed to favor it. He asked whether the Government really accepted the ideas involved in these rules. If it did, they ought to be made law. fllohamedan Invasion of lV*rthcru.
