the peess. MUSDAY MOBNISG, MARCH 24. 1873. £VS#X re;ular attache of tlicPllESS i8 furnished wltb a card certificate countersigned by Stanley T. Pulltn, Editor. All railway, steamboat and liotc managers will confer a favor upon us by demanding cred'ntlals of cvcr> person claiming fo represent our jouroal, as we have information that several bum mers" arc seeking courtesies in the name of the Pitess, and we have no disposition to be, even pas » vely, a party to such fraud. We do notr«dM>^yn><>«· 3ud cu",mu"i cations The naoft and address of the writer are in all cases indispe ab e, not necessarily for publication but as a guaranty of good faith. W" ; cannot undertake to return or pre ervo com munications that are not use,i. Object Teaching in the Census Report. The coloted maps accompanying the cen ftw report are so suggestive that a philosophi cal man who could not read mighf. derive fh>m them no very inaccu ate idea 01 the liis. t <ry of the country, as well as ol its social and industrial condition. Their nice adap tation to the purpoje for wire h they are in tended has almost the eflec' of poetry on the mind. See on the map showing the degree of illiteracy in different parts ot the country, how the dark shading deepens as you ap proach the South. What a damning blot llavcry has left, to be sure ! Nor is the mark ed absence of education in the South fully ac counted lor by the existence there of the col ored race, for in comparing this map with another in the same volume, showing the den sitv of the black population, we find that the «•MA ouauiug UU HUU U'IW -- "j cident. The spirit of the kicked old institu tion cut off the poor whites, as well as tl.e blacks, froui education, hence the inky dark ness of this cloud of shame that hangs over the South. The cloud gradually lightens as you approach the Ohio and Potomac, but its shadow tails a little across both rivers, after which it rapidly c.ears up till New England is reached, where it is only a slight haze, cov e ing only a little corner of Vermont and Massachusetts, and, wonderful to tell, not a square inch of Maine I This unspotted wli.te njse of Maiue, as we find on reference to the acjompanying key, indicates that there is no pirt of the State in which even five per ccut. of the population is illiterate. There is not another State in the Union in which there is not at least one d irk spot, and in most of them the shading in some part indicates trom eleven to forty per ceut. ot illiterate persons. Nor is this the only respect in which the ap pearance ot Maine U singular. The purple shading which shows the toieign population Covers a less extended area than in any othi r Northern State, and it is so light even where it is laid on in a narrow strip along the coast Ai far as the Penobscot river, that it indicates only from 2 to 5 foreign inhabitants to thç square mile. This map shows in the most striking manner the usefulness i f the new method of conveying statistical information. At a glance it is seen where the grand cen ters of foreign population lie. Among these the most notable is indicated by a deep pur ple patch covering all Rhode Island and East e u Massachusetts, escept Cape Cod, extend ing diagonally across central and western Ccn. necticut, the corner of New York where the City is situated, and central New Jerspj, until it stops with the. city of Philadelphia. In the whole area there are more than twenty foreign born inhabitants to the square mile. Though almost all the Northern States have some tinge of foreign purple, there are no ■tore large spots like this, and the South, like Maine. Is almoet without a stain. Pursuing the investigation, with special reference to this State, it is found from the map showing the density of population, that the Southern part of Maine—the only part which can really be said to be settled—has more than the average number of people to Ihe square mile. The blue shading on all the coast counties, and the greater part of the second tier, indicates from 40 to 70 people to the squaie mile. Out of New England there is not a State in the Union, except Indiana, where so large a part of the rural territory is covered by this heavy shade. It should be d stinctly understood that we take no account of the unsettled part of the State when we make this statement. The great center ot population we find, naturally enough, to em brace almost exactly t.e same crowded area that was above referred to in connection with the foreign population; and in reference to the map indicating the wealth of the country we find a bright gold belt covering almost ex actly the same narrow strip of territory.— The inhabited part of Maine shows a wealth of $750 to §1250 per capita, except a littl·: spot around this city, where the deeper yel low indicates that if the wealth were divided equally among the people, each inhabitant would have from $1250 to $2000. Our wealth, aî here Indicated, is just about the same as that of other rural populations in the Union. All these facts and many hundreds of oth ers could be obtained with much more precis io ι by the study of the figures in this vol ume, aud it might seem at first thought thai the maps are curious rather than valuable· But they show at a glance not only the rela tive wealth, population and culture of differ ent parts of the couutry, but they give a hint at the absolute tacts in these particulars. The information which it vould require weeks of pitient study to acquire, is thus rendered available through an hour's amusement to those who require only a general knowledge of the facts presented in 800 pages of census returns. The tedious discussion of Senator Cald well's case has given rise to a new phase of the somewhat vague question of State rights, and the division of opinion as it relates to the well V ow belief of party leaders is some what curious. For instance, Mr. Conkling who is not a state rights advocate in the us ual acceptance of the term, objects to the res olution reported by Mr. Morton .declaring the election ol Caldwell void, on the ground ihat such action would be in violationof the sover eignty of the State of Kansas ; that the the Senate can only inquire con cerning the formal returns and the specific qualifications of Senators, and concerning the legal right of election in the legislature which chooses them. In ihis view Mr. Conkling is sustained by such Republicans as Messrs. Frelinghuysen, Carpenter and such Democrats as Messrs Bayard of Delaware Hamilton of Maryland and Stockton of New Jersey. On the othei hand Mr. Thurman of Ohio who is par excellence a state rights ad vocate ana an uura uemocrat, Holds tliat the 8 vereignty of the State is not infriuged by declaiing the election void, but on the other hand, Is protected by such action. In this view he is endorsed by such well known Re publican Senators as Messrs. Morton of In diana, Wright of Iowa and others. Senate r Schurz alRo ta ires thr same arround. It issaiu .natuei.. butler declared whin in Washington that if one hurdrtd of the η Who voted for him should sign a petition asl - i g him to resign in cosequence of his pron - t ent action in securing the success of tl e Β lary grab, he will do so. Here is a rare < p· ρ tunity for one hundred enterprising J · ρ blicans to remove the possible originator of a great deal of piischief in the forty-thiid Congress. ■It will be been elsewhere that the re-nomi nation of Collector Casey of New Orleans, has bîen ennfi med. The objection to him was that he had been too potent in Louisiana politics. Business men there, however, ask el for his re-appointment on the ground that the business of the office was. never before so well conducted as under Mr. Casey. The Kennebec Journal says that the friends of lion. John A. Peters are in Au gusta with numerously signed petitions for his appointment to the Supreme bench, and that a majority of the Kennebec county bar have signed a petition for the appointment of Artemas Libby, esq., of Augusta. A Washington special of Saturday says that it has been asceriaiued that the long de bate over Caldwell's case in the United States Senate has not had the effect to change a sin gle vote. There has been some high toned •peech-making, thoujh. Everything of California origin is pecu liar, even to its criminal matters. For in stance, the telegraph informs us that Mat. Torpey who was hanged by the lynchers for the murder of a married woman at Monteray, just before dying made a will giving the hus band of the victim $1000 and that this be reaved man at the request of the murderer put his hands on the head of Torpey as he knelt. In connection with the $1000, it is difficult to determine just what this laying on of hands was meant to conyey. In noticing the statement that Congress man Dawes is going to organize western Mas sachusetts against Gen. Butler's nomination for Governor next fall, the i-'oston Journal says that any special anxiety on that subject would be wasteful. Those supposed to be within the charmed circle of the semi-official knowing ones, de clare that Mr. Paine, the present Insurance Commissioner, will be reappointed by Gov. Perhatn. _ Sceues Attending the Execution of Fos ter. Eli Perkins gives the following acsount of the scenes attending the execution of the mur derer Foster last Friday, which is published in the Daily Graphic: Sheriff Breunan and a doze a deputies filed iuto the Tombs about a quarter to nine. Each deputy wore black gloves aud carried in his hand the insiguia of his office, a cherry colored gavel with brass points at either eud. At nine υ clock and ten minutes the sheriff took Foster from his cell. When he showed a little lack of nerve, the sheriff said: "Now hold up, Foster, and die like a man!" "Yes, 1 will show you that I can die like a man," gasped the doomed man. jnuw Hie prueessiou moved out from the low er corridor of the Tombs iuto the prison yard, Foster between the two Dr. Tvnirs. father and son, the deputy sheriffs and doctors behind. "What α» you want to do uow, doctor?" ask ed the sheriff of Dr. Tyng. "We will offer prayers." "Well, don't be long—don't be over three minutes, for Foster is weakening." "We will be short," replied Dr. Tyng, Sr. Then the praying commenced. The doctor prayed fervently for one -two—three minutes. There were no signs of the end coming, and the doomed man's knees shook together. The phy sicians looked at each other and whispered "he will faint." Policemen, spectators aud report ers looked on in breathless suspense. That prayer seemed an age. The "amen" came and lï'oster still stood with the rope around his neck aud his arms pinioned, oblivious to everything. Death was obly an empty form to him. Ibe young Dr. Tyng prayed one—two—three min utes more. Suddenly the sheriff whispered to him in a low voice · "O. doetor we must stop this—Foster can't stana it much longer." As Dr. Tyng fiuished abruptly, saying, "We are in thy hands Ο Lord, to do everything to I thy glory," sheriff Brennan touched the con demned man, who seemed just ready to fall, and said : ' ••jNow, brace up, Foster—hold up a moment longer " Fo ter stood firmer. Then the death warrant was read, all the tiii'e «lie condemned man's body surging like a broken reed. At a.ii toe sheriff, who stood be'iind Foster, swung bis cap, the hangman cut the spring, the big weights dropped, and William Foster hung in the air. A few struggles, a lew heart throbs, a few muscular contractions, aud he was dead. His account with his fellow-men was balanced. If the scales of justice tipped down when he killed Putnam, they uow stood even, for the killer and the killed were standing face to face in eternity. Then came the closing scene in the drama. The doctors felt Fosters pulse, put their ears against his heart, and pronounced him dead. After the coroner had pronounced him dead, they took him into the n>,w prison, and the gallows-makers commenced taking down the gibbet. At 10.30 the gallows was down, and the prison yard had its wonted peaceful look. Industrial Statistics. W. E. S. Whitman, Esq., the Industrial Sta tistican of the State, has just issued a circular making the following,inquiries, pursuant to the objects of the resolve of the Legislature : Names of individuals carrying on industrial operations; Names of industrial cjmpanies or corpora tions; Name of business or manufacture; Whether corporate or private; Amouutof capital invested in the business; Kind and number of horse power; Nameort escription a ad number of machines; Kind, quantity aud value of stock consumed; Kind, quantity and value of production; ολ uixiuci. υι. tuuutus uuriufç tue year in acnve operation; Number of males, females and children era ployed ; luiai amount of wages during the year; Average weekly wages paid each person; Market for products, stating whether iu the State, and where out ot the State ; Besides figurate statistics, detailed informa tion is also solicited respecting particulars not enumerated in the foregoing, including such facts as are of special interest, and embracing returns relating to the products of all quarries, kilns, ice, ore beds, and fish· ries; to farm pro ducts and live stock; and relating also to our lumbering interests, rail road s an<l ship building.

Respondents will bear in miud that in the work of gathering statistics, we nave not the slightest mtcution of prying into the private affairs of their business, but only desire to car ry out the purpose for which this department was created, viz : to acquire "a knowledge of what we [as a Stafe] are expanding and doing in every branch of our widely varied industries, "■î'h the products of each and the aggregate of all." iJlank circulars, conveniently arranged for the return of facts, will be sent on application, accompanied by prepaid envelopes, duly di I rected. Veterans of the Navy Retibed.—Secreta t · Robeson is carrying out the recent act of Cjngress, by relieving the following officers from act've duty. The periods of their service are reckoned to the commencement of the pres ent year: Rear Admirals—Charles S. Boggs Secretary of the Light House Board, who was born in New Jersey, entered the naval service Nov. 1, 182C; has served 20 years and one month at sea, and 1G years and one month on shore, and has been in the service 40 years and two months, Charles Steadman, commanding the South Pacific Station, was horn in South Carolina: entered the service April 1, 1828; served at sea .3 years and five months, on shore 14 years and hree months, and has been in the service 44 yeirs and nine months.

The stockholders of the Atlan tic anil Pacific lines, which extend from New York to San Francisco, have bought up the stock of the Frankliu Company's lines, which extend from New York to Washington. At Washington the lines of the Con uni; Λr>— pany connect with tlio=e of the Southern At 1 tntic Company, which have already been ex t -nded to Montgomery, Alabama, and are bein<* r ipidly pushed forward to New Orleans. It is ejected the Pacific and Atlantic Telegraph C .uipany, whose lines extend from New York to Pittsburg, Cincinnati and New Orleans, via the Mississippi river, will also join the Consoli I dation, thus affording facilities for reaching all the most importants points in the South and Southwest, and under one management. The Automatic Company's linos, which extend from New York to Washington, it is also thought will be inducer) to join in the combination. Rockland Items.—The Bod well Granite Co-1 and Gen. Davis Tillson of Vinalhaven have just been awarded a contract for furnishing granite for new government buildings at St. Louis. This contract will exceed one million dollars. The Bodwell Granite Co. will proba bly employ more than 1100 men this summer »t their quarries at Fox Island. Their pay roll . averaSe over $75,000 a month. DUt on Π „"tCa?K:r, ot about 130 tons is to bo haven « Πώ """ R<*kland and Vinal uaveo in coniiectiou with there, within ninety days. Bran>te works It is said that the foieign „ost. „ of Rockland for 1872 exceed those of city in the United States. This is owiog'ton;" ly to the large number of Scotch andïngiîji, laborers in the granite quarries at Fox and Dix Islands, who send home a great deal of money. Prompt Justice.—John Coughlan and John Green, the two youths who made the outrage ous assault upon Mr. Antoldi in New York, a few evenings ago, and who also made a general raid with knives and revolvers upon the pas sengers in a horse car, were before Judge Brady of the Court of Oyer and Terminer, on Friday, on the charge of robbery, to which they plead ed guilty. Their counsel endeavored to miti gate their guilt by the plea of intoxication, both boys being under the influence of liquor at the time. Judge Brady, however, said he should never consider intoxication au excuse, unless it reached the pitch of utter and entire depriva tion of mind. The prevalence of crimes of violence among young men and lads required the firmest repression. He certainly should not pay the slightest attention to any plea of intoxication. Had they gone to trial he should have given them the full sentence of twenty years, but as they had pleaded guilty he would lessen that and sentence them each to fifteen years at hard labor in State prison. 4'West" the sensation's Washington corres pondent of the Boston Traveller says in his Saturday's despatch: A somewhat sensational rumor is in circula tion about the capital to-day, to the effect that the mission of Secretary Belkuap and Lieut. Gen. Sheridan to the southwest has reference to highly important projected military move ments on the part of the government. Not long ago assurances were received at the State Department that portions of the Mexican States of Chihuahua, Conhuila, Nuevo Leon aud Tamaulipas, comprising the so-called free zone, were auxious to unite with the Uuited States, and, with sufficient protection, might successfully aecomnlish a seoarafcinn fmm Mexico, The tact that the chief design of Sec retary Belknap's mission is to inspect the mili tary posts of the department of Texas bas given strength to the report that the government will assist the free zone States to accomplish iheir independence in case they take the tirst step of possession. In any case, tie result of Secretary Belknap's mission will be anxiously awaited. About Battle Flags.—Major General Wil liam T. Sherman tells of a striking incident du ring his European travels. Dining with the of ficers of a noted English regiment, he noticed upon their colors the words "Lexington" and ' Breed's Hill," battles in Amer ca in which their predecessors were engagtd nearly a ccntu ry ago. In England the battle on Juno 17tli, 1775, was railed by the name above given in stead of "Bunker's Hill," as it is called on this side of the Atlantic. Wagner's Counsel.—It is stated that Judge Taplcy of Saco, has been selected as the senior counsel of Louis Wagner whose trial takes place at Alfred in May. News and Other Items. Alex. H. Stephens delivered the St. Patrick's Day oration in Augusta, Ga. Commissioner Douglass denies any designs on the place of Assistant Secretary of the Treasury Hartley. The editor of Old and New says that "the pa pers which have excited the most wholesome influence on American life and American socie ty liave been the party papers." The Chicago Tribune is already discussing at great length the claims and prospects of Presidential candidates. Its confines its atten tion to Bepublicans. With singular unanimity the New York pa pers head their reports of the passage of the general railroad law by the New Jersey Legis lature, "New Jersey Redeemed." The total loss by the Boston fire, according to the latest estimates, was $81,841,144. One-half of the whole was owned by fifty seven persons, trustees or corporations. Ex-Gov.

The Worcester (Mass.) Spy says that Mrs. Isabella Beeclier Hooker of Hartford, sister of Rev. Henry Ward Beecber, has become a Uni versalist, and preached in the Universalist church at Bridgeport, on Sunday. An Oregon youth is accused of dressing un a straw woman and giving it a sleigh ride through the town, alter his bashful approaches had been rebuffed by the genuine articles among his female acquaintances. F. F. Clark, a religious confidence man, re cently distinguished himself at Troy, Ν. Y., by swindling a prominent citizen of $500, borrow ing all the money he could, and nearly inveigl ing a respectable young woman into marriage, after which he decamped. Senator Kelley of Oregon, declines to have anything to dj^witb the back pay. Had he presented himself to receive it he would have been informed that the mileage which he has been paid exceeded the amount of the back pay by several hundred dollars. A Providence girl, on repairing to lier room late on Monday evening, was astonished to see a pair of feet, without boots, protruding from under her bed. She did not scream, but went down stairs quietly and informed her father, and the burglar was then nicely caught and handed over to the police. Gen. Sherman thinks the Modocs have good ground of complaint against the authorities for removing them to a reservation where they could not secure their natural food, but that Capt. Jack and his lieutenants are great ras cals. He utterly disbelieves the rumors of a movement toward the annexation of certain Mexican States. Only Vice President (now Senator) Hamlin, Chief Justice Chase. Senator Cameron, Frank Ρ Blair. Sr., and Gideon Welles, remain of the associates of Mr. Lincoln in the adminis tration of 1801. Messrs. Sumu»r, Cameron, Anthony, Hamlin and Chaudler, are the ouly Senators who were in the 36th Congress, and excepting Vice President Wilson,the only mem bers of that Sena e now in public life.

At Bockland, the body of Alexander Phil brook, a man 33 or 40 years of age, wag found Saturday forenoon at the flats, close to a wharf and between a little pink-stern schoonerlwhich lie owned) and another vessel. He was seen alive Friday, and it is probable that he fell overboard and was drowned Friday night,while endeavoring to secure his little craft, which had broken from her moorings. Au inquest will probably be held. UNCOLN COUNTY. Mpssrs.

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 iu the side, the bow els sometimes costive and sometimes to loose, tongue coated, pain in the shoulder blade, feeling sometimes very restless, and at 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 irom 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, liyer and stomach clog, and remain torpid and inactive, and before the patient is aware of his situation, the lungp 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 opium, 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, nourishes the system, and créât· a healthy circula tion of the blood. When the els are costive, skin shallow, and the patient is a billious habit, Schenck's Mandrake Pills are required. These medicines are prepaired by Dr. J. H.
