Brier Jotilusa, Substituting "r" for "a" in the sail make s some difference in the means of transportation, as may be seen in a note oa shipping in yester day's paper. Matters were quiet at the police station last night. But one inebriate was incarcerated. There were one or two snow squalls yester day, but nothing worthy to be called the forty seventh suow storm of the season. Bishop and Mrs. Neely have gone to New York and will not return until Easter. Mrs. Mabel Burnliam, Miss Ada Cary, Messrs W. H. Fessenden, W. S. Beckett and George Marstou, gave a concert at Norway la.it night. Yesterday was Anuuuciation Day, and was observed with the usual ceremonies by the Catholic and Episcopal churches. The Musical Club are to hold their rehearsals at Rossini Hall. They have procured a fine Steinway piano-forte. A sale of useful and fancy articles will be holder by the ladies of St. Paul's at City Hall during Easter week. The Maine General Hospital Fair will con tinue eight days. The Law Court has rendered a decision in the case of Griffin vs. Pinkham, over-ruling the exceptions. The annual shoot of the Forest City Shooting Club will be held some time in April. A special meeting will be held next Monday evening ti determine upon the date, and also to adopt an amendment to the by-laws. The financial standing of the Society is good. The citizens of Portland have subscribed quite a sum of money to be offered as special premiums, as an inducement to the Maine Pjultry Association to hold their first exhibi tion in Portland. We understand that Prof. Churchill will give at his reading in the People's Course, to-nior rjw evening, "Betsy and I are out," "The Min iiter's Housekeeper," and also selections from Dickens, Mark Twain and other authors. At the town meeting in Deering Monday, Jeremiah M. Luut was elected Selectman. At a meeting of the Grammar School Cadets C. H. Merrill was elected Captain, C. Piugree First Lieutenant and T. Pratt Second Lieuten ant. A communication in another column con tains the obituary of Henry P. Deane, Esq., who died in Boston Monday night. Nothing which we might add to that could express the deep grief which we, in common with the citi zens of Port'and, experienced at his untimely taking off. The remains of Mr. Deane were brought to this city yesterday afternoon. HAnother is added to the list of prominent citizens of Portland who have recently passed away. At the time of life when the full vigor of manhood, with ripe experience and without weakness of age, should have blessed him, disease has done its terrible work. At the age of about twenty or twenty-one lie graduated»from Bowdoin in the class of 1844, and soon after entered his chosen profession of law in Portland. Early in his active business career he represented hi» city in the State Leg islature, aud became its legal adviser in the capacity of City Solicitor. Later he filled the office of County Attorney for the county of Cumberland, and finally was for some years Surveyor of the port of Portland and Falmouth· Besides holding numerous positions of trust, he has for many years been a Director of the Port land and Rochester Railroad. In the success of this road he took a deeD and earnest interest, y Death of Hon. Xlcnr> P. Deane. Mr. Editor: anil labored for it without ceasing. Indeed it was not in his nature to enter into any enter prise except with his whole heart and weight. Always eminently industrious, full of inter est in every public improvement, and zealous in good works, lie won an honorable position and endeared himself to a large circle of fiiends who will mourn his early death. The loss of such a man to the public is great, while to bis immediate friends it must be inexpressibly se vere. %* Maine General Hospital Fair.—An ad journed meeting of the ladies interested in the proposed Maine General Hospital Fair was held at the Rossini Hall yesterday afternoon, Mrs Bion Bradbury presiding. A committee of seven was appointed to nominate the officers of the organization, consisting of Mrs. Geo T. Davis, chairman, Mrs. Samuel Small, Mrs. Thomas Shaw, Mrs. S. R. Lyman, Mrs. H. I. Robinson,Mrs.George S.Hunt and Mrs.Elbridge Gerry. The committee reported the following officers: President, Mrs. Dr. Gilman; Vice Presidents, Mrs. Bion Bradbury, Mrs. S. R.

The present ation was made by Engineer Stevens in fittins terms and was happily responded to by Mr. Richards. Fire.—Fire was discovered in the buildinf containing the annealing furnace of Warren & Pennell's wire works at Saccarappa, about fou o'clock yesterday morninsç. They extinguiehe< it by the aid of water pails and fire annihila tors. The damage is estimated at $500. In bured at Sparrow's agency. THE LtWCH RECEPTION An Enthueiaetie Welcome—Party Distinc tion* Abolished — Speeehe· by Tkewni. Lynch, Heraey, Bur leigh. Kimball, Emery, Webb, Coddard, KinsHbury, Tliomaa, We»cott and Other·. The reception and complimentary dinner tendered to tlie Hon. John Lynch by the citizens of Portland, at the Falmouth Hotel last evening, was an elegant and cordial affair. Prior to the dinner the citizens assembled in the parlors of the Falmouth, to welcomo Mr. Lynch to the city whose interests he has so faithfully represented during the last eight years. In addition to our own citizens there were present gentlemen from the York portion of the district, among whom were the Kepre sentative elect, Hon. John A. Burleigh of South Berwick, Hons, J. H. McMullan, Ε. H. Banks and J. E. Butler of Biddeford, Hon. E. B, Smith of Saco. Each guest wore a white rose beutonniere, and as the parlors slowly emptied themselves into the large dining hall the sight was a very pleasing one. The long dining tables were richly decorated with flow ers, tastefully arranged and lavishly distribut ed,—indeed the air was heavy with perfume. Before entering the hall Mr. W. S. Dana re ported for the committee of arrangements and announced that choice had been made of T. C. Hersey for President. The invited guests and others were then ushered into the dining hall. Buck to invoke the Divine blessing, which the reverend gentleman did. Mr. Hersey then said; "Grateful for the houor of being selected to preside on this interesting occasion, allow me to make a parliamentary decision that the first business in order is the consideration of the bill before us au introduced by the popular landlord of the Falmouth. With unanimous consent we will go into committee of the whole for its discussion. Gentlemen, please be seated and make yourselves at home. The "committee of the whole" then seated itself and proceeded to do justice to tho repast before it. Meanwhile the Portland orohestra discoursed sweet music. At the conclusion of ι the diuner, the President, Mr. Hersey, deliver ed the speech of welcome, which was frequent ly interrupted by warm applause. Mr. Hersey spoke as follows : Hon. John Lynch—After a successful Congres sional career of eight years, a few of your old friends felt impelled to tender you a quiet re ception ; but it soon became evident we had started on too narrow a gauge, and you see, sir, assembled here representative men without dis tinction of party, of all the varied interests you have so faithfully represented. It has been made my pleasant duty to bid you a hearty wel come home. It is a pleasant duty because you have not only truly and faithfully represented us, your immediate constituents, but you have ably represented the S ate and country. Doubt ful legislation has not tarnished your fair repu tation. On finance your position has been broad and sound ; our commercial interests have been watched with a vigilant eye; we see evi dence of your comprehension of our wants in our public buildings, in the appropriations for harbor improvements and defenses, in the life station and sigiial service about to be estab lished on the coast. We have been disappoint ed in the want of legislation requisite for recip rocal trade w ith the Dominion Government— but if not mistaken you advocated legislation on the only occasion when the subject was brought before Congress. In the revival of ship-buildinjj, we, as a Slate, have felt a deep interest, and your efforts though not successful to the degree you desired, yet have done much to give our ship-builders and mechanics the v_l— il — J- 1 Γ» .. 1 indeed all New England are deeply interested in reciprocal trade aud ship building, we must use all our efforts to secure the necessary legis lation. Amid great enthusiasm Mr. Lynch respond ed. The honorable geLtleman could at times scarcely proceed with his remarks for the ap plause which greeted his utterances. He spoke as follows: Fellow citizens, friends and neighbors—The cordial and friendly greeting which you have so generously extended to me, your expressions of confidence, approbation and good will, coming as they do from those with whom I have been so long and so intimately associated, from my immediate neighbors and friends, my old school fellows and school boy acquaintances; from my political opponents as well as political friends, have touched my heart aud filled me with emotions which I hare no language to ex press. The commendations which you have been pleased to bestow upon my services as your Representative, I attribute te a generous disposition on your part to recognize my earn est endeavors to promote your interests; to ac cept my poor attempt to serve you as the equiv alent of the more substantial advantages which would have resulted from successful efforts. You have generously accepted "the will for the deed." From the day on which I first assumed the responsibility of representing your interests in Congress to the end of my official term just closed, I have never ceased to feel conscious of my inability to discharge in a satisfactory manner the responsible duties of the position. I have felt most Keenly that lack of facility of expression, that want of readiness in debate necessary to the attainment of the position of influence which a constituency such I was chosen to represent, have a right to expect their .Representative to occupy and in retiring from public life with no expectation and uo desire of again holding any public office whatsover, my only regret is that with opportunities such as seldom occur in a lifetime, I have been able to accomplish so little. X have endeavored to compensate in some small degree for my short comings in matters to which I have referred, by devoting myself all the more assiduously to those more humble, but 1 trust not uuimportant duties with which I felt myself more lamiliar and more competent to discharge; and here let me say that much of the credit which my fellow citizens have given to me for appropriations obtained for improve ments in the city and district, justly belonged to our late distinguished Senator, the lamented Fessenden, who, when I entered Congress, was just retiring from the position to which Presi dent Lincoln had, in obedience to the public sentiment, called him at a most critical period of our history, the Secretaryship of the Treas ury, to take his place again in tte Senate of the United States. He met me in the most cor dial mauner on my arrival iu Washington, upon my entering upon mv public duties, and gave me the advantage of his wise counsels and his great influence, which at that time, I may say, without disparagement to any, was more commanding than that of any man in Wash ington. From that time to the day of his death he was my warm and constant friend ; the warmest fr end, the most sagacious states man, the safest counsellor it has ever been my good fortune to know. I shall cherish his mem ory so long as X retain my own. Mr. Chairman, while X claim to have accomplished nothing, I do claim to, and have kept in lonstaut remembrance ill· pledge which I made when first honored wall a nomination for Congress eight years ago, to devote my best energies to the interests of my constituents; and I may be allowed to say in no spirit of egotism that I never have, X never could have given eight years of more earnest, conscientious labor to my own private business than I have while in your service devoted to your interests; and while I confess to a par tiality for my political friends and for my fel low townsmen, I have endeavored to discbarge my official duties impartially, without regard to sectional lines or a party preference. For this I am entitled to no credit. To have done otherwise would have been an act of base in gratitude toward a most infiniment nwl <τρ Π - erous constituence and an abuse of ~my official position deserving of your severest cen sure. It is the good fortune of the Represent ative of a Maine constituency that he is required to represent no exclusive local or sectional in terest, no interest that is not shared by most of the States, few that are not shared by all ; and while our State has so little to ask for herself no State has through her delegation in Con gress, under whatever political party, been more liberal in aiding to promote the interests and prosperity of her sister States, eveu when that prosperity had indirectly tended to lessen her own. I regret that this liberal spirit has not always been reciprocated. Our great interests are commerce, manufac tures and agriculture; which are'also the great interests of the nation. lu the term commerce I mean to include the ship-building and naviga tion interests of the State, perhaps the most important of all our interests. With our three thousand miles of coast line embracing within its limits the finest bays and harbors in the world, with an inland empire on our northern border having all the elements and resources of a great nation, except convenient access to the great highway of nations, and destined I hope and believe, at no distant day, to share that anil all our other advantages in common with ourselves, Main., must be a great commer cial and shipbuilding State. And what inter est is less sectional, what more national than the shipbuilding interest? It would bo a na tional interest even though every American vessel should be built within the borders of Maine. The forests of Florida, of Georgia, of the Carolinas and Virginia: the mines cf Pennsylvania, Missouri and Michigan are all laid under contribution for the material with which to coι struct our ships. In the language of Portland's great poet, "There's not a ship that sail» the Ocean, But every climate, every soil, Must bring its tribute great or small And help lo build the wooden wall." And when built these ships go forth clothed with the emblem of the nations power and glory, contributing to its wealth in peace and furnishing the most efficient meaus of defend ing its honor in war. They constitute a link in the great international highway between the remotest State on the American Continent and every nation visited by civilized man. "Sail 011, sail on ye stately ships. And wiui your floating bridgt* the Ocean span To bring man nearer unto man." Our manufacturing interests are those iu which the whole country is interested, as near ly all the raw material must be drawn from other parts of the country. With the excep uou Of lu mix r. there is scarcely a raw material usea in our manufactures that is the product of ««own State. the iLÎ ? ™er Power capable of performing the labOri',1 '00ϋ·000 Ii,borine nlen> four times tho nrll Population of the United States at failin* aTth time' this power, constant, uu •r iwi Bni J? > Bea50na. to last while "grass inrt onin^fn K run®'" mu8t when 'ιίι utilized 0pened up by connecting lines of railways, make Maine the great manufacturing State of thThin0it!e.s of Lewiston Auburn, tsaco and Biddeford are evidences of what may be done by the improvement of our water power. You doubtless remember Mr. Chairman, I well re member when the development of the water power of Lewiston first took shape and was in augurated by one or two, and I think at that time there were only two, merchants of Lewis ton and a gentleman of this city, now I think a resident of Boston. If I am not mistaken it was in your counting room and the counting rooms of J. B. Brown and Tinkham & Boss in which I was a clerk that the conferences were held which has resulted in giving to our State one of its most prosperous and enterpris ing cities, the third and judging from its rapid growth and great resources, soon to becoane second in Maine, in population. "Ah what a woundrous thing it is to note How many wheels of toil One thought, one word can set in motion." Of our Agricultural interests and capabilities we caunot say as much, although the hardness of our soil and severity of our climate is in a measure overcome by the industry and intelli gence of our people, while a portion of the State now being settled by the hardy descendents of those brave old Northmen, who explored our coast centuries before Columbus first dreamed of a new world, is as fertile as the garden of the West. The developmnt of the State has thus far been made without the aid of the general government. We have built our own railroads, made our own seographieal and hydrograpl io surveys, and nave, when it was supposed to be necessary to preserve the peace with our neighbors, yield ed a portion of our territory to the general gov The appropriations which have been made for our rivers and harbors for the main tenance of our light houses and the erection of life saving stations along the coast, are in the interests of the commerce of the country and the world ; because all who will can avail themselves of their use, while the fortifications which line our coast and stand sentinel at the entrance of our ports are for the defence of the nation. Sir, I cannot close without again expressing my gratification, that this meeting called to express its friendly feeling aud good will to nuiu vuv JUOV ICbUlllg 11UUI itll U1UUC LU »Y UltU he was elected by the votes of one of the po litical parties, should be composed of the rep resentative men of all political parties. It furnishes to my mind another evidence, that the passions, the prejudices anU the asperities engendered by political contests over questions now forever settled, are to be buried with the dead issues which gave rise to them, and that henceforth, until uew issues shall arise, there shall be a truce to partizan strife and that the en ergies of our people are to be devoted to the de velopment of the great resources of our State, and tbe promotion of its material interests, which interests are identical with thoae of the whole nation. Gentleman, accept again my heartfelt thanks for your generous and cordial reception, and allow me to close with the sentiment: Our City, our State, our Conntry—Whatever promotes the interests of either contributes to the prosperity and welfare of all. The president then called upon the Mayor of the city, Hon. George P. Wescott, and Mr. Wescott responded as follows: Mr. President—I am so unused to addressing an assembly like this, that if I stood here as an individual simply, my embarrassment would be very great. But,as M ay or of Portland, represent ing the city and her interests, it is a welcome duty that I perform in expressing to our guest, tbe giatitude whicii the people entertain for his great services, so honestly and unassumingly performed. It is peculiarly appropriate that the city should appear by her representative, on an occasion like this. One of her own sons, born within the limits, whose struggles and triumphs,whetlier in business or in political life, have all been intimately connected with her prosperity, returns after eight years of honora ble service in a field where so many bright names have grown dim, with his record un clouded by any breath of slander, or even of doubt. This alone in these days would justify any demonstration we might make. If I were to enumerate the items which I know of the city's indebtedness to our guest, those who have not watched his career closely, would deem me guilty of flattery; but those who know his life etter than I, would think I did him scant jus ti«e. It is not now my object to repeat or an ticipate what has been,and will be so much bet ter said by others. I desire simply to express the hope that the next representative in Congress will lay us under as deep obligatloos ai the Hon John Lynch. Hon. John H. Burleigh, member elect from the First District, was next called upon, and responaed in a very happy vein. He spoke of his first acquaintance with Mr. Lynch, while a member of our State Legislature in 18(12. It was in strict accordance with his feelings to joiu in extending a welcome to John Lynch. He ad ded his personal testimony to the general testi mony of Mr. Lynch's fidelity and devotion to the public interest, especially his noble conduct in tbe last days of tbe last Congress. Mr. W. S. Dana responded for the Board of Trade. Thirty-five years ago he and Mr. Lynch were clerk» together. He spoke of Mr.Lynch's moral courage, fear of Gjd and intelligence, the three basic stones for every true success in life. CI X tl- · ' « » · · - - UU.HUU) W|/UU|I9U vuuoui au IUI3 pui Lj responded as foil >ws for thi Republic of Spain: Oentlemen: I have the honor of introducing to you a young lady; yonng, very young,beauti ful, charming, and as lovely as can be. This young lady, gentlemen, is your sister. This young lady's name is the Spanish Republic. Now, G.intlemen, a few words. I have re ceived an invitation, by which I have the hon or and the great pleasure to be among you. In this invitation I read these words: "The citizens of Portland without party distinction." I call your attention, gentlemen, to these words— Without party distinction;" aud now, what is the meaning of these beautiful words for a for eigner as I am? The meaning is this—We, the Americ η people, we have—as you have in Europe—our different opinions in political mat ters, but when it is a question of paying com pliments(aswe nowdo)t > a distinguished gentle man who has done great service to our coun try; when it is a question of our common wel fare; when it is a question of our sacred institutions; when there are no opinions, no parties, no divisions; we are all friends; we are h]1 brothers; we are all more than that; we are "citizens of the United States." And now, fentlemen, allow me to tell you my best wishes, wish health and great prosperity to the Hon orable John Lynch, to whom we pay compli ments in this day. I wish peace and increasing welfare to this great republic of the United States. I wish success aud future happiness to my loved and young Republic of Spain. Deputy Collector Monlton was called upon to respond for the Custom House, but excused himself in a very happy manner, and called upon Surveyor True, who responded with a noble tribute to the honored guest, saying that he was an exemplification of the command and the promise, "Be faithful in little things, and 1 will make you ruler over great things." Judge Goddard responded for the Post Office as follows: In the toast with which our late Representa tive finished.his remarks he had unconsciously sketched the outline of his own official life, "Our City, our State and our Country," for in his successful efforts to secure the necessary legislation to relieve Portland from the imme diate effects of the great fire he efficiently serv ed his native city; iu his faithful and untiring labors to revive American ship-building and commerce, he had laid the foundation for a re turn of our State and national prosperity, and in aiding the establishment of life-saving sta tions on the coast of Maine, he had transcend ed even the sphere of the patriot and risen to that of the philanthropist, for these were de signed to save the shipwrecked mariners of the world. But above and behind all this,he has retired after a term of eight years service at the national capitol, with a public and private rep utation,like that of the great Chevalier, "with out fear and without reproach," an example worthy of all imitation aud praise, at such an epoch as this. Judge Goddard said be did not like the Ε hase "a self-made man,"because no man owed alf so much to his own efforts as to the men and institutions around him. But perhaps no uative of Portland came nearer that description than our honored guest. Without that parental aid that has given the first start to so many men now rich, he has amassed wealth, with out influence other than hie own merit had earned he had risen to the presidency of an im portant railroad, and without|political help and himself in no seuse a politician, he has been honored with the exceedingly rare compliment of four successive elections from this district. With an honest memory of his early life, and after attaining riches and honor, he bought and ι 1 — ■ and reared in toil and frugality. The architect of St. Paul's is immortalized in the happy epi taph, ''If you are seekiug his monument look around." So we are practically saying to our distinguished guest by this great presence here to-night,"If you wish to see the reward of your pub.ic labors, look araund you." But though his modesty may not sanction the suggestion it may be doubted whether the plaudit, "Well done, good and faithful servant, will not be followed eventually by the popular mandate, "Friend, go up higher." These festive occasions not only serve their main object so well alluded to by our Chaplain in rewarding worth and honor, but they do us all go.d while in tneir enjoyment, and their memory will enliven aud cheer the future. "Let fate do lier worst, there are relies of joy, Bright dreams of the past, which she cannot destroy That come in the mllnight of sorrow and care, And bring back the features which joy used to wear. Long, long be our hearts with such memories filled, Like the vase in which roses have once been distilled. You may break, you mav shatter the vase If you will, But the scent of the roses will hang round it still. Charles P. Kimball responded for the Me chanic Association as follows: When I cams here to-night your president told me I was expected to speak for the Board of Manufactures. I told him the president and secretary of the Board were both here and I must be excused. I really thought I was "well out" of inflicti g a speech upon you to-night; but I am called upon to speak for the mechan ics. To the call to speak for my brother me chanics I have never never turned a deaf ear, and while J have the power to speak I uever will. Mr. Kimball then proceeded to speak at some length upon the ship-building interests of Maine, and lauded Mr. Lynch's efforts for their revival. He predicted that iron ships would soon give way, in this country, to woo< en ships. He closed by alluding to the political contests which had been waged in years past between Mr. Lynch and himself, and said that he had never uttered a word against his opponent's ability or integrity. Mr M. N. Eich responded very happily for the M. L. Α., regretting that its foremost aember, the guest of the evening, could no speak in his place. He recollected that eight years ago a citizen expressed bis regrets that Mr. Lynch was elected to Congress, became it would result in a loss of his well-earned popu larity. This evening's assemblage did not look like it. w. \V. Thomas, Jr. responded for the Board of Manufactures, and spoke of Mr. Lynch's ef forts for the revival of ship-building, for which Maine owes Hm a great debt. Mr. Thomas's remarks, tho' brief, were very eloquent. Mr. J. H. MsMul'an of Biddeford responded for York County in a neat speech in which he took occasion to speak of Mr. Lynch's honesty and ability, and of the heart-felt respect with which he welcomed him home. After referring in a humorous way to the contest of two years ago, he congratulated him upoa his release from official duties. Mr. Ε H. Elwellof the Transcript, respond ed for the press of Portland, in an eloquent and effective speech, in which 1 e referred to the days when he and John Lynch were school mates to- ether. He paid a lofty tribute to Mr. Lynch's worth and ability. George F. Emery, Esq., responded for the Cumberland Bar, and congratulated the guest of the evening for his efforts to restore the old fashioned gold dollar to circulation. George T. Davis, Esq., was called upon as a representative of the old Whig party, and re sponded with some very happy remarks. Ex-Mayor Kingsbury was then called upon, and rising to speak, said he supposed he was to answer for the great party of "outs," of which hp η nil Λ Γ r Τ ,γπλΙι <γιιι·λ «απτ hntVi moillhopi He alluded to beiug in the Legislature with Messrs. Lynch and Burleigh, and spoke of them both in terms of high praise. Gen. John Marshall Brown responded for Hon. J. B. Brown, who was unavoidably ab sent. Nathan Webb, Esq., made some very elo quent and felicitous remarks, in which he took occasion to pay a glowing tribute to Mr. Lynch. Senator John E. Butler of York county, ex pressed his pleasure at being present and at be ing enabled to join in the welcome extended to Mr. Lynch. Letters from Senatjrs Hamlin and Morrill and from H. J. Murray, esq., British Consul at this port, expressing their regret at being ab sent, and giving their testimony to Mr. Lynch s ability and integrity were read. The party then broke up with three cheers for Hon. John Lynch. The occasion was a very enjoyable one, and those present without distinction of party, paid warm tributes to the ability and uprightness of their representative, who, amid so many temp tations to which others had succumbed, main tained unsullied his integrity and his honor, and who came back to the constituents he had served so well without a stain of Credit Mo bilier or other wrong clinging to his garments. COLLISION ON THE GRAND THINK Both Trains Badly Smashed and Two *r Three Persons Injured. We learn that about eleven o'clock yesterday morning a collision took place between the reg ular and a special freight train near West Beth el. The trains were running at the usual speed and dashed into each othci, demolishing both engines and piling up the broken cars so as to completely blockade the road for twelve hours. A man named Walker is rumored to be serious ly injured, if not killed outright, and it is also rumored that two and perhaps half a dozen others are more or less Injured. A despatch was caught by some party sent by the West Bethel operator, to Gorham, Ν. H., and Bethel asking immediate assistance with a physician and wrecking train. The officers of the Grand Trunk at this point are the most hopeful specimens of know-noth ings ever seen: But their refusal to give any information leads one to believe that the accident is of a more serious character than they would have the public understand. The train due at 3 o'clock yesterday was not expected until midnight. Later.—The train of the Grand Trunk due at 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon arrived at 1.20 this morning. From an eye witness we learn that the collision took place on a sharp curve a mile west of West Bethel, between a regular freight train going we3t, and a special freight or "wild train" coming to Portland. The wild train had notice of a crossing at West Bethel, but the regular train, to which the road be louged, iiad no notice of the wild train, hence the accident. Cause: Somebody had bluuder ed. The trains were running at the usual speed, and were so near together when mutual ly discovered that the collision was inevitable. Tho respective engineers whistled "down breaks" and jumped off the engines before they struck. There were three good engines a minute before the accident, but now the Grand Trunk has a miscellaneous assortment of old iron a long distance from market. One car was smashed and several thrown off the track. Mr. Walker, an employee of the road, who has charge of distributing ties, received an ugly gash in the back of the head, and it is thought that be also suffered a fracture of three ribs. Two other men living at Empire Eoad Station were quite severely injured, one having his ankle severely jammed, and the other having his back painfully wrenched. All tho meu in the saloou car were more or less bruised, and one man complains that he has not so many good teeth as he had before the accident. On the whole, it was a pretty bad thing, because it shows a lack of carefulness in not notifying the conductor of the regular train that the wild train was running on his time. The Grand Trunk has excellent discipline in one respect. From the gentlemanly telegraph operator to the night watchman, the lips of every man are as close as if padlocked. This is the way one gets information respecting the Grand Trunk. The reporter singles out a fel low whom he hears talking about the accident to an official, following him out into the dark, the following colloquy takes place: Reporter—How many of ^our engines were smashed? Employee—Three, and stove all to pieces. Iteporter—How did it happen? Employee—Our wild traiu had a crossing at West Bethel and the regular did not, and the road belonged to it. We met in a cut and the engines crushed into each other like mad. When a reporter consented to appear as a radroad man there was news enough. Town Offlcera. To the Editor of the Press : At the annual towu meeting in Yarmouth held Monday, P. Jf. Blanchard was elected moderator, Richard Harding clerk, P. N, Blan chard, Ε. G. Wagg, J. M. Buckuam, select men, assessors aud overseers of the poor; Charles Humphrey treasurer; D. L. Mitchell, collector; Ε. H. Sargent, E. G. Wagg, W. W, Thon-as, superintending school committee. The following sums were raised for the sev eral objects designated to wit: for schools $1,500; repairs of roads and bridges $1,300; breaking snow 8500; town accounts $960; eup DOrt of the nnnr .Κ7*ίΠ· pnntiniront. flvnonBfta 8900. For the payment of notes and interest (war debt) $2,000. By an almost unanimous vote tlie sum of $2,000 was raised for a free high school. With this sum, together with the amount we got from the State and other sources, we hope to run the school 36 weeks ia the year. A large committee composed of some of the best men in town was raised to lease or rent suitable buildings or rooms, and make all necessary ar rangements to put the school in operation. It is hoped that the schools in Yarmouth will yet be made to rank among the best in the State. The signs to-day were encouraging. It may not be amiss to say that all the town officers elected by ballot were elected unani mously, they being previously nominated by a citizens' caucus. For several years past parties have not entered into onr town affairs. The plan of union works exceedingly well and sat factorily with us. In fifty minutes from the opening of the meeting Monday every officer, from moderator to hog-reeve, was elected, ana bv three o'clock all the articles of the warrant, fourteen, were acted on, and the meeting dis solved—one hour and a half adjournment in the meantime for dinner. Would not this plan of union be worthy of trial by other towns? The fears of some of our zealous party men, that it might operate disastrously to the party at our State elections, have not been realized. We have continued to throw a handsome ma jority at every fall election siuce the union plan was adopted. In fact, some of us think that it has been of advantage to us as a party—that we have thrown a larger Republican majority at our fall elections in consequence; but we don't want the Democrats to know that we think so.

The track of the Chicago, Danville & Vikcennes Kailboad has just been completed to thelndiana coal fields. This would have been doue last season if the horse disease, the sickly season and the early setting in of winter had not prevented. It is expected that the earnings of the road will now largely and rapidly in crease. The part of the road in operation last year earned much more than the expenses and interest, and the very favorable annual report made by the officers has caused rapid sales of

the Company's 7 per cent, gold bonds during the last few weeks. The financial agents of the loan, Messrs. W. B.
