The Presumpscot Trotting Park Association think of building a fire race course near the head of Pleasant street in Deering.this spring. The location selected is the former John Holmes estate. Woodman has recently finished fine portraits of Mr. Charles G. Crosby and family, Hill St. The portraits are remarkable for their softness and brilliancy of color, as well as for their fi delity to the originals. The "Byzantine" picture at Hale's is at tracting much attention, not only by its merits as a work of art, but also by its peculiar and novel^oloring. Yesterday, for a wonder, was free from snow flurries. Col. Cousins of Gorliam,is mentioned in con nection with the appointment of a Railroad Commissioner. A sail boat is to be placed in Back B?.y. Gen, J. M. Brown is to build a villa for a summer ressidencc at "Bay View," Falmouth Foreside. Miss Annie Starbird appeared at the Mehlig concert in Boston, Saturday. The Star of yesterday morning was a very bright number. Its selections of poetry and general literature were especially fine and showed great care and much literary taste and culture on the part of its managers. The Boston and Maine Railroad is now sell ing tickets between this city and Boston . in packages of twenty-five and fifty, at twenty five per cent, discount from regular prices. The steamer "Alhambra" sailed from this port with a full cargo for Halifax yesterday. Geu. Chamberlain and wife are in town, at the United States Hotel. In default of news yesterday, people fed themselves on rumors of terrible rows on streets in the lower part of the city. The walking doesn's grow any better very fast, and the crossings would disgrace a four teenth century city. One of our city journalists who forgot him elf and attended church yesterday, picked up a greenback as he was walking home. He pur poses attending church next Sunday, for he thinks it pays. There was a lively runaway on Middle street about midnight, but as there was nobody at that time to be run over, little damage was done. A lively scrimmage took place on Centre street last evening. One spectator says that 500 combattants were engag-d. Five would be nearer the truth. They vanished into air, thin air, and left not a wrack behind at the ap proach of the police. One man got knocked through a window ct vT-i τ .ΐ_ι.ι—». ci - χ j « — j » — i.i bad his sliirt studs stolen while toying with u fair deceiver. It is time this infamous <len was broken up. A contribution of money to aid in removing the mortgage on the Abysinian church, was taken up at State street church yesterday. One of our city clergymen assailed the news papers yesterday—the newspapers who dailj preach to a larger congregation than his voici can ever hope to reach, and much more potent ly The steamship "Prussian," Capt. Dutton sailed for Liverpool about three o'clock yester <lay morning. Funeral Services.—The funeral sen-ice over the remains of the late Charles M'lntosl took place from Chestnut street church yester day forenoon. The burial services of the Od< Fellows, of which society the deceased was i member, were observed by Maine Lodge ant by delegates from the other lodges in the city The remains were carried to the Eastern Cem etery.

W. Robinson, D rector of Entertainments ; T. F. Roberts, Ara orer. The number of members is 232. Th Society is iu a very prosperous condition. Sunday Lecture. City Hall iras filled to repletion last evening by an audience eager to hear the popular pulpit jrator, Bev. C. B. Pitblado, discourse upon the jvils of intemperance. Very many young men were present who, it is to be hoped, will take die admonitions of the preacher to heart. The discourse was one of great power, and the speaker pictured, in intensely dramatic language, the crimes and miseries of that vice which he claimed to be the foremost evil of all the world. Some of the statistics of intemper ance which he brought to the notice of his au dience were startling in the extreme. The pic tures which lie drew of the rumseller and the draukard, though not exaggerative,were touch ed with deep and vivid coloring. He claimed that intemperance has been more productive of misery and evil than war, or pestilence, or mis directed ambition, and that a new and fierce crusade against it is the crying need of the hour. The times demand that something shall be done to stop its ever increasing power, and its eucroachmeuts upon human happiness. Though the subject of the lecture was a trite one, it was treated with a power and earnest ness, and freshness, which almost lent it the charm of novelty. The audience paid the closest attention throughout the discourse, and were in full sympathy with the speaker, as was evidenced by suppressed applause several times during the delivery of the lecture. Fibe Alarms.—The India Street Univesal ist church was well filled last evening to hear the pastor, Bev. Mr. Bicknell, discourse on "lire alarms." It is said that be made this the sub ject of bis Sabbath evening lecture at the sug gestion of some his people who had beard some jocose remarks relative to the propriety of placing the fire alarm bell in the tower of that church, since the reported general belief of that ι ι:ιΛ *ι»λ nf αην îilîirm Iippp after on account of that unpleasant element. Those, however, who listened to the pastor's sermon found nothing to assure them that a life of sin would not nieeti ts full punishment.Iu fact there were many decidedly startling alarms as to the consequences of ill-doings sharply given in the discourse. At the conclusion of the dis course, Charles P. Kimball, Esq., rose, aud in fitting terms alluded to the work that Mr. Bicknell and his society were doing, and sug gested taking up a collection to go toward de fraying the part that the parish have to pay to ward the new bell. The collection was taken and resulted iu a good sum being received or pledged. Trial of Hose.—A trial of new hose, under the supervision of the Committee on the Pire Department, was made by steam fire engine Cumberland, No. 3, at the corucr of Spring and South streets. Saturday afternoon. The hose tried was the Boyd and the Shaw. Eight hun dred feet were used, four hundred of each make, One length of Boyd hose burst at 210 pounds pressure. One length of the Shaw hose burst at 10 pounds, one at 100, one at 110, and oue stood a pressure of 200 pounds. All of the Boyd hose stood 200 pounds pressure. S. P.—People there are who claim toknowali the secrets of the S. P. Society, once so famous in Portland, and who are not all chary of re vealing then). The initiation is said to bave been fearful and wonderful, and the suppers ac companying it to have been elegantaffairs. The name of the Society is claimed to be the initials of an ejaculatory express!Jn of surprise, in vogue at the time of its formation; which struck the young ladies as very funny. However true all this may be, it cannot be denied that the So ciety was an aoie ana a sprigntiy one, wen ue serving the high reputation it achieved. Allen Mission.—A large gathering is ex pected to night at the Alien Mission to listen to the addresses of Camp Meeting John Allen aud Kcv. C. B. Pitblado on the evils of Intem perance. There will be an opportunity to sign the pledge. Services commence precisely at 1-4 to 8 o'clock. The term "denizen" applied to Mrs. Feeny who met with a painful accident some days since was used in no other sense than a "resi dent." We are informed that she is a worthy woman,and regret to hear that she feels injured at our referen:e to her as a "denizen," which we do not consider a disrespectful term.

"Tontine" Life Insurance is believed and de clared to be one of the greatest humbugs of modern times, by the ablest actuaries in the country. Commissioner Paiue of this State has the same opinion— and so have the men most conversant with it throughout the coun try. And so will any person who will examine it intelligently, notwithstanding the quota tions from New York and Boston papers writ ten for those papers and paid for by interested parties. Nineteen out of every twenty intelligent In surance men are opposed to Tontines, on the ground of their deception and cheat. Mar 17-2taw3w-M&W.

Washington, March 22.—Tbe following is received to-day : Van Bremen's Ranche, Cal., March 16.—To Gen. W. T. Sherman, Washington: The squaw sent into the Modoc camp returned yesterday. The excuse made by the Indians for not keep ing their appointment is that at the last mo ment their hearts failed them and they could hot bring themselves to the point of abandon ing their old homes and going to a distant country. They are not evidently now in a dis position favorable to any arrangement, though they profess willingness to have another talk. Xt will be some time before the commission can be assembled, and in the meantime troops will be put In a position that will cover as far a3 possible all the points of egress from the lava beds. I think the system of gradual compres sion with an exhibition of force that ian be used against them, if the commisssi· » should again fail, will satisfy them of tue hopelessness of any further resistance, and give the peace party sufficient strength to control tbe whole bat.d. lime is becoming of the greatest importance, as the melting of the snow will soon enable them to live in the mountains. This will greatly in crease tbe difficulties we have to con tend with, as they will then break up in small parties and can more readily make their escape from their present location.

Mr. Alcorn discussed the question of juris diction. Mr. Ferry of Connecticut gave his reasons for offering his amendment yesterday. Mr. Ferry said when the charges were made that a Senatorial election was procured Dy bribery, it was t'ie bounden duty of the benate under the constitutional clause that made tne Senate the judge of election, qualification ana return of it's members to enquire into the facts. The Senate was a component part of our gov ernment, which was so organized that corrup tion could not exist without destroying the lib erties and prosperity of the people. When rich meu obtain seats here merely for personal glory without regard to country, when great corporations which are advancing with giant steps to obtain control, and when the State Legislatures have become so corrupt as to send unworthy members to this body,then will have been sapped the foundatton of all our hopes and the Republican government become a sham, and the way prepared for the rule of a Tiberas or a Napoleon. Some time was spent in the exchange of views as to fixing the order in which the pend ing proposition shall be voted ou, but no LUI rangement was made.
